    From their physical looks especially the fat bellies, one can say they are prime candidates with comorbidity for contracting C-19.

    Sivakumar Friday, 11 December 2020 12:30 AM

    At last common sense prevailing in Sri Lanka. The only people who would be hoping this syrup to fail are the jealousy doctors who have NO answers to covid-19. Thank you Mr President for making the decision to go ahead with this medicine.

    All those who are making negative comments about this indigenous syrup are gullible and can’t think straight. Look at the facts, over a million people have died worldwide ,majority in the hospitals, and the DOCTORS HAVE NO ANSWERS OTHER THAN GIVING OXYGEN. But you are prepared to still rely on the doctors !!!!!

    Oliver Head Friday, 11 December 2020 08:45 AM

    come with scientific proof whether it can cure COVID-19 rather than some bull shit syrup.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 11 December 2020 08:55 AM

    This is all government sponsored drama to deflect people from the real issues this government is failing to solve and find solutions.

    Rosalene Friday, 11 December 2020 09:06 AM

    To all the gullible, superstitious idiots amongst us, how was the efficacy of this tested to cure Covid-19? It has to be proven to be effective, if not, all it is, is just a placebo.

    Yehiya Friday, 11 December 2020 09:09 AM

    Fun Srilanka bring the GMOA also.

    Sherman De Silva Friday, 11 December 2020 09:32 AM

    Sinhala hela wedakam practitioner, He is not a Ayurvedic (Indian system) practitioner.

    Observer Friday, 11 December 2020 09:33 AM

    See the people in the picture. We hardly see any Politician in Sri Lanka in present times who look fit even to walk as they are over fed.

    Andrew Silva Friday, 11 December 2020 10:02 AM

    Export this powerful syrup to Amarica and the EU and we will be the richest country in the world.

    Jehan Friday, 11 December 2020 10:37 AM

    I hope they get polio in the brain, for misleading people with fake drama.

    Sanath perera Friday, 11 December 2020 10:39 AM

    Bunch of morons

    Ronnie Bugger Friday, 11 December 2020 10:49 AM

    It has taken almost one year for the best scientific and medical brains in the world to find an inoculation to counter this dread that has claimed one million lives so far and out of the 'blue' comes a 'medicine man' or a 'shaman' as the Red Indians' in the times of the Wild West called such persons who has produced a magical concoction for all the gullible donkeys as seen in the photos.

    .H.D.Gunaratne Friday, 11 December 2020 11:07 AM

    Hon. Speaker and the Hon. Minister of Health who had consumed this Goda vedas Syrup should in the first instant be warded at IDH along with positive Covid patients for at least three days to test the efficacy of this so called wonder medicine.

    Nimal Friday, 11 December 2020 11:17 AM

    Best drama - Grammy awards winner 2020..! So sorry Pfizer and Biontech. The Govt allows these kinds of dramas to be staged to hide their inabilities...

    Citizen Friday, 11 December 2020 11:49 AM

    No single mask can be seen ... R u sure that same thing distributed to the public...

    sarath kumara Friday, 11 December 2020 12:15 PM

    Dear citizen, Iam a Journalist one-of leading newspaper so iam positive with Covid and admitted to Dankotuwa Hospital and I came here 29 Sunday so in this hospital there is very limited facilities so when came here I got know real situation of hospital, we write stories what ministers said giving facilities to hospital but when came here I saw there is no facilities provided. So I will write good story about this situation and this is good experience for me also to tell truth of Covid facilities to hospital. so you can see the pictures what I publish in picture caption on 09th December "Minimum facilities for Covid patients at Dankotuwa Hospital"

    vince Friday, 11 December 2020 12:39 PM

    why drink out of mugs when this potion only requires about 2 to 3 spoon fuls. Are they trying to make mugs out of us?

    Teaching the fool Friday, 11 December 2020 12:44 PM

    Ronnie Bugger, not they but you are the brainless gullible guy. Tell me what the doctors have to treat the coved patients up to now ? Nothing and over one million people have died.
