    A good chance to test the "Dhammika Paniya" first hand. Hope it will be administered by the Health Minster followed by a kiss.

    Tom jones Friday, 08 January 2021 01:57 PM

    Dayasiri will infect the entire hospital. Please publish the name of the hotel so tourists and visitors can avoid the hotel. Why can’t he be sent to IDH hospital.He can also be accommodated at the Parliament complex.

    IF anyone corona positive solution is at hospitals. Not at hotels. Hotel accommodations are recommended for coronatine purposes only. Not a treatment purpose center. Sorry ,immediate dispatch to IDH. Save a beginning of a another cluster.

    Waiting to see Friday, 08 January 2021 04:39 PM

    sara Friday, 08 January 2021 08:41 PM

    this will add credit to him as he might have mingled with common people as a public servant, other politicians are taking care themselves in a selfish way and keep away from public there are many leaders in western countries were infected .

    VJ Friday, 08 January 2021 11:31 PM

    From whom did he get it? Probably from one of the attendees of the big party, WW was there as well, they should quarantine all those who attended the function.
