Nearly 50 priests and Rev. brothers belonging to a Christian denomination in Mattakkuliya have undergone PCR tests after some priests were suspected to be COVID-19 positive, Chief Medical Officer Colombo Municipal Council Dr. Ruwan Wijayamuni said yesterday.   

There were reports that around 20 priests were found positive but Dr. Wijayamuni told Daily Mirror that the test results  were yet to come and may be delayed  for a short period.  

“We may be able to tell whether these priests are positive or not only after results arrive,” he said.  
He said the religious house belonged to a minor Christian denomination which  was not a mainstream church.
