The epidemiology unit of the health ministry says there was no outbreak of any water borne disease so far as a result of the heavy rain and flooding experienced in many parts of the country since early last week.

As for now there were no reports of any outbreak of water borne diseases, Chief of the Epidemiology unit of the Health Ministry Dr. Paba Palihawadana said. However the health authorities say that there is a possibility of the spread of dengue.

When contacted, officials at the national hospitals in Colombo and Galle also said that there were no outbreaks of any water borne disease.

    It's difficult to tell yet as the flood waters have not fully receded. In time all water bourn deceases will rear their heads.Just imagine the hundreds of cess pits that have overflowed.

    If we say there is no disease, then we don't need medicine.
    This is the new strategy to overcome the shortage of medical supplies. Just say there is no problem and the problem will go away.

    Altho there is no water borne diseases - there is a severe epidemic of skin diseases - caused by the polluted rain waters as a result of bad sewerage and drainage systems.
