Community-related disease like Coronavirus can never be eradicated by isolating the community, the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) said.   

Addressing the media, GMOA spokesman Dr. Samantha Ananda said the novel coronavirus is a disease which is spreading in the community and help should come from the community to defeat it. 

 
He said the coronavirus spread is an issue relating to Community Health.   


Therefore, a wide comprehensive and very sensitive programme should be implemented to locate COVID-19 positive patients, to examine them and their close associates with immediate effect, Dr Ananda said.   
“The programme should target the public to get their help. Without getting their help, this pandemic situation cannot be eradicated from the community,” he said.   
“As this coronavirus is in the community, it could convert to a community problem. After that, we can ask them for help to eradicate it,” Dr. Ananda added.
