If people fail to adhere to strict health guidelines, the emergence of another disastrous situation at the end of April cannot be ruled out, Public Health Inspectors’ (PHI) Union Head Upul Rohana said.
He said people have now started to behave carelessly and most of them seem to be taking the deadly virus spread very lightly.
“People go shopping with their whole family. They do not even maintain social distancing and even do not wear masks,” he said.
If people continue to behave carelessly, there will be no chance of curbing the virus and it will become another disaster towards the end of April.
“Most of the Government and private institutions have stopped their work from home options and recommenced their normal operations. Most of the staffers do not even wear face masks while at work and do not maintain social distances.
Calling all staff members into the daily operations could pose a threat to the whole set up, if one becomes infected,” he said.
Therefore, the PHI Union requests the people to be extra cautious and strictly adhere to health guidelines.
