    Peniya maru. Drink more of it and extol its virtues.

    Gompala Saturday, 23 January 2021 01:07 PM

    This is an international conspiracy. It's not because the Covid syrup or pot throwing into rivers is not effective.

    RoaringCreek Saturday, 23 January 2021 01:10 PM

    That is not good news for the fight against the pandemic. We wish her. quick recovery and hopefully a resignation.

    RoaringCreek Saturday, 23 January 2021 01:11 PM

    Sad news, the syrup and the pots did not work. As I keep saying we need to think scientifically and logically which she lacks.

    Sam Saturday, 23 January 2021 01:11 PM

    What ever said and done, She did something for the nation.

    Give her more syrup (pohottu pani) and ask her to go to Seenigama Devale and grind miris and brake pol --- LOL Superstitious stone-age politicians.

    horaRP Saturday, 23 January 2021 02:01 PM

    She must take Nandasena balms.

    Poor Covid Patient Saturday, 23 January 2021 02:11 PM

    why was both antigen and PCR conducted for her while for others only one is done? I hope she will prove the efficiency of the services under her department by admitting herself to a government run general hospital and avail the same services as other covid patients.

    Anton Weerasinghe Saturday, 23 January 2021 02:12 PM

    Present day Sri lankan politicians are a bunch of idiots

    Kamala Nonis Saturday, 23 January 2021 02:15 PM

    What am I to do with my goats? No one will want to sacrifice in the name of the Peniya now!

    AnaThawWa Saturday, 23 January 2021 03:15 PM

    Immediately after an antigen, the general PUBLIC if positive is strictly pulled over to quarantine from the spot. Peni NONA is self quarantining at home till pcr results. ONE COUNTRY ONE LAW

    Jinna Saturday, 23 January 2021 03:29 PM

    BUSHEL Saturday, 23 January 2021 03:58 PM

    I'm not a fan of her. Whatever fun her rivals made she worked hard. In political rivalry that's how the game goes. Wish her fast recovery

    Shan Saturday, 23 January 2021 04:05 PM

    roni Saturday, 23 January 2021 04:15 PM

    This drama will set it up for the 225 to be inoculated first by the vaccine followed by their families and agents before the poor masses who sent them to the so called hallowed place.

    Buddhist Saturday, 23 January 2021 04:56 PM
