The weekly infected patient rate increased by nearly 12% while the weekly reported death rate increased by nearly 28% during the past week, The Association of Medical Specialists (AMS) pointed out.   

In a letter to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, the AMS stressed the importance of stricter measures in carrying out travel restrictions to curtail the pandemic further, as the healthcare facilities are getting overwhelmed with staggering number of symptomatic cases and the number requiring oxygen. 

 
Meanwhile, they stressed that a clear and firm Vaccination roll out policy should be issued by the Ministry of Health and said it should be made public by them to restore the confidence of the general public.   


“Power of vaccine roll out should be vested in the Department of health services and law enforcement authorities should be called to monitor its implementation with stringent conditions. No one should be allowed to violate this vaccination policy,” they underlined.
