The actual COVID-19 status in the county is not reflected  with the cases reported at present as there is a considerable delay in  getting PCR results from laboratories, the Public Health Inspectors  Union claimed.   

PHI Union President Upul Rohana said the cases being  reported at present are of the PCR results released four days ago. If we  are to get an idea of the country’s situation in terms of COVID-19, it  is vital to set up a mechanism, which enables the quick release of PCR  results from laboratories.   


“The present pandemic situation in the country is more  dreadful than what is being shown through PCR results from laboratories.  Therefore, the Health authorities must take pertinent measures to  create a mechanism that would comfortably manipulate the swift release of  PCR results,” he stressed.   


Moreover, he urged people not to venture outside for no  reason and gather in large numbers. “People must act with utmost  responsibility. Otherwise, the country could be dragged to a point where the situation would be out of control,” he warned.   


The country has reported over 1,500 COVID-19 cases daily for the last three days.
