  • Some individuals were taking health guidelines for granted when organising events

By Sheain Fernandopulle   

While saying that people’s behaviour during the festive season had not been satisfactory and had already led to the rise in the number of Covid-19 cases, Deputy Director-General of Health Services Dr. S.M. Arnold said people who violate health guidelines would have to face legal action hereafter.   

He told the media that the Health Ministry would not hesitate to take strict action in terms of legal provisions if people continued to act irresponsibly.   


“It is sad to note the irresponsible behaviour of many people during the festive season. We observed some individuals taking health guidelines for granted when organising events, despite the Health Ministry having issued guidelines to be followed,” he said.   


“In a situation where some countries are facing third and even fourth waves of COVID pandemic, we have been able to successfully contain the virus so far. However, if the irresponsible behaviour of people continued, a rapid spread in COVID cases would be inevitable,” Dr. Arnold stressed.   


Thus, he requested people to pay special attention to adhering to the health guidelines to prevent possible COVID clusters from emerging in the country.
