    Another "hide and seeker" on the loose.

    is there something fundamentally wrong with this hospital or Sri Lankans in general? Why do these people discharge themselves? Escape is the wrong word to use as it implies that patients are kept there against their wishes.

    Police and security forces are main stakeholders of covid prevention,so it's shame,kind of excuses such as , only five so far, or within 30 minutes patient caught, to a senior police man to say as his excuse
