Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) has warned that it has received information on a series of Valentine parties organised through the Facebook and the internet during the next weekend and that it could worsen the prevailing threat of COVID-19 pandemic.

Editor of the GMOA Dr. Haritha Aluthge told the media yesterday in Colombo that the organisers were already inviting the public through Facebook and the Internet to the parties held at different places in the cities and in the outstations.

“The number of participants would not be restricted by them. At present only wedding receptions, subject to restrictions, are allowed. However, the Valentine parties, if allowed by the authorities regardless of its health hazard would further aggravate the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic,” He said

He requested the authorities to have a check on the proposed Valentine parties and to reconsider any decision to allow them.(Buddhika Kumarasiri)

    Our lankan need no reasons and they have parties very often. Knowing the risks they take, let them face the consequences.

    Thanks GMOA, the trade union for concerns of the citizens. Can you also highlight the vaccines available today and pressure the government to place orders with the manufactures and vaccinate 70% of the population. Getting vaccine free from the WHO is only a dream.

    It is our medical personal who risk their lives for these irresponsible, self centered and selfish people.
