The COVID-19 risk in the Western Province (WP) has increased to 60% again with the advent of the new COVID strain from the country, the Government Medical Officer's Association (GMOA) said.

GMOA Editor Dr. Haritha Aluthge said a considerable number of patients with the new COVID-19 strain found in the Colombo Municipality area.

However, two to three weeks ago, the risk in the WP was on downward trend and was 40%.

 "There is a steady increase in the number of COVID-19 patients from Colombo suburbs," he said.

Therefore, more focus should be made on the WP and on the increasing number of patients, Dr. Aluthge said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
