A A A

Despite the Government claiming that maximum facilities are provided to Covid-19 patients, the accommodation facilities at the Divisional Hospital A – Dankotuwa remain at a minimum level. Patients also complain that there is no facility for them to pass the time and ease their stress. However, the service rendered by the hospital staff including doctors and nurses is commendable and great, they said.

    millions of dollars for other projects - spending money on health facilities and education are keys for the development of a country. Speciality Mental health.

    Where are those who gave thumbs ups saying SL is the best in Covid managemejt , SL #1 , We beat the west etc ... Small minded people can never make a nation great ..

    If that Ayurveda medicine is proven, why can’t it be given to all these innocent positive people and cure them in 3 days ?

    Sokrates Wednesday, 09 December 2020 07:18 AM

    A hideous example of the magnificence of the grandiose free health system in this country that the government is so proud of and is said to be a role model for other countries.

    This is the real Sri Lanka under Gota. Thanks DM for publishing these photographs. Take care!

    saman Wednesday, 09 December 2020 08:19 AM

    For a poor country like SL, Health should only be free for for the most vulnerable. The rest should pay according to their income so that better quality equipment can be purchased. We get what we pay for!

    Nilanga De Silva Wednesday, 09 December 2020 08:21 AM

    The state of this Hospital shows the plight of the economy. It also shows our failures since independence from the British.

    Rosanne Wednesday, 09 December 2020 08:25 AM

    This is a hospital? looks more like a public toilet. This is why politicians want to go overseas for treatment. How many billions on Port City, Mattala, Lotus tower, Hambanthota stadium, Colombo Airport new terminal? Disgraceful

    Raj Gonsalkorale Wednesday, 09 December 2020 08:48 AM

    Thanks to the DM for exposing this disastrous situation which probably is not the only one of its kind. Years of neglect to address the status of some health facilities is evident. The surroundings for the hard working staff to work and look after patients is pathetic. What have health ministers been doing all these years?

    Sambo Wednesday, 09 December 2020 09:02 AM

    A country that does not understand it's priorities. Who will want to enter a quarantine center such as this , they better die in their homes.

    Lumbini Wednesday, 09 December 2020 09:13 AM

    While politicians are spending millions on unnecessary functions and activities, poor people suffer in this way. What a shame?

    We should send all govt MPs to stay here for atleast for one day.

    100 KM of roads - Yes, there is big money involved. Healthcare No as no big money

    Anil Fernando Wednesday, 09 December 2020 12:45 PM

    Isn't dankotuwa in katana. Base of state minister for Covid. Sudarshani.

    REEZ Wednesday, 09 December 2020 01:58 PM

    Hey! What happened to the money accumulated in the Presidential Fund for Covid 19

    Lawry Wednesday, 09 December 2020 02:32 PM

    The Services of the hospital personnel has been commended by the patients. No one bothered to comment on that. All our hospitals have such personnel.

    If all Corona accommodations look like this, then the government should

    Mudalige Wednesday, 09 December 2020 03:56 PM

    How can we call this a hospital? This looks more like a cattle shed. what happened to the funds provided by funders and nations? What a shame!

    Nadi Karunaratne Wednesday, 09 December 2020 04:03 PM

    No wonder are politicians prefer Singapore facilities for their own needs.

    varuna Wednesday, 09 December 2020 04:41 PM

    While masses are suffering from COVID-19, little princes are playing LPL cricket for their joy. Where are the 6.9 million patriotic voters now?

    brainmaster Wednesday, 09 December 2020 05:27 PM

    country is going down, only Dollar foreign accounts of VVIP's and VIP's are going up

    Lion Wednesday, 09 December 2020 06:30 PM

    Scoundrels who go to represent the masses enjoy their life to the hilt,travel in massive luxury cars.poor people suffer without even basic medical facilities .

    Dot Wednesday, 09 December 2020 06:37 PM

    I remember a Minister in the recent past stating that the Ministers need upgraded vehicles to know the needs of the people .Perhaps they missed out on this place .This is so sad ..the place seem so unhealthy at all times leave aside the virus .
