The permission has been granted allowing Ayurvedic hospitals to treat asymptomatic COVID-19 positive patients, Primary Health Care, Epidemics and COVID-19 Disease Control Minister Sudarshani Fernandopulle said.

She told Daily Mirror that three hospitals namely Borella Ayurveda Teaching Hospital, Nawinna Ayurveda Hospital and Yakkala Ayurveda Hospital had been allowed to treat COVID-19 patients.

“This is because we need to identify all possible places to admit positive patients,” she said.

However, she said the steps would be taken to transfer symptomatic cases to the hospitals designated to treat COVID-19 patients. " The Pallawela Ayurvedic medical center is already treating COVID-19 patients.

The hospitals that treat COVID-19 patients have already reached there full capacity due to the massive spike in cases following the festive season.

The Government is currently looking for options that would accommodate to treat COVID-19 patients in order to ease the congestion. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Why do you need to treat asymptotic patients! Their immune system is taking care of it. Treat the ones with severe symptoms! 80% of the population in the world are asymptotic. If you want to treat all asymptotic cases, we need to build hospitals in planet Mars! Be realistic, treat the needy!
