Government should seek the assistance of virologists and other experts who are in its Parliament group at this moment to overcome the COVID 19 pandemic, UNP Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardene said. 

Mr. Wijewardene, who made a special statement, said the government does not seem to take advice from the experts within its own camp. "Things have got messed up as the right person is not given the right job," he said. 

"The request made by former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to prepare a legislation with new laws to overcome the pandemic situation has also been turned down," he added. 

"Future generations are going to be affected by the marine pollution due to the burning of MV X-press Pearl freighter, according to experts. Also even a child understands that fire caused by nitric Acid cannot be doused by water. The remarks expressed by the monks who were responsible for bringing this government to power bear testimony to the status which the present government is in," he said.(Yohan Perera)

    The virologists expert in Parliament is too old and feeble. Seen him on TV debates talking nonsense. Most of the time it was "Bombay look Calcutta".
