Responding to comments that the country currently reports symptomatic patients of COVID-19 more than asymptomatic cases, Chief Epidemiologist Dr. Sudath Samaraweera said most patients are still asymptomatic .

He told the Daily Mirror that they had not observed such a change where many symptomatic cases being detected in the country except for a few cases and added the majority of cases were still asymptomatic.

“We are monitoring these changes very closely. As of now, most of the cases that are reported to us are asymptomatic cases, " Dr Samaraweera said.

Meanwhile, he said as the COVID situation was getting worse, it was much important to strictly follow health guidelines and restrict unnecessary movement.

“We saw how people acted during the festive season. It was not satisfactory. Consequently, we are witnessing the repercussions. Hence, people will have to act in a more responsible manner if we are to prevent a third wave of COIVD-19," he added. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    There he blows again. Make a mess of it and keep issuing insignificant statements. A nice couple they make, he and the health minister.

    It is surprised that PCR Testings have not been performed in the country since March according to the world daily report. And, by now, we have lost 30 lives per million of population and same date last year it was 0.3. Can we satisfy with the variance ?
