The Health Authorities and the Epidemiology Unit should take maximum effort to control the emerging of new sub-COVID-19 clusters in the country, the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) said today.

Addressing the media GMOA Editor Dr Haritha Aluthge said the emergence of sub-clusters can be seen in various places in the country, such as in the Prisons Department, Government and private hospitals, Factories, Free Trade Zones, police and various institutions.

“Conducting of surveillance process in the society if very important. For that, essential facilities and services should be granted to the Publish Health Inspectors (PHIs) and to the entire health sector to control this situation from the ground level while encouraging them,” De Aluthge said.

The surveillance process cannot proceed without strengthening the public health system and the main responsibility should be taken by the Epidemiology Unit.
 
“If a certain country was able to control the emerging of COVID clusters, that country will be able to be free from the coronavirus. If not the situation getting worst,” he said.

Therefore, the responsibility of health authorities is to inform and declare technical recommendations to the Government and the country on a daily basis, Dr Aluthge said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Health authorities are overpowered by the Militarisation of the frontline. So, they have no say. Everything under the control of one or few. Pathetic

    May I suggest you pressure the government to start work on a vaccination project. In the US, they are planing to start this next week. They are not waiting for WHO advice and WHO is not a stakeholder. Start talking the three (3) main vaccine manufactures.

    BigEars, you are very right. Here in Europe they start vaccinate even already in December. With the aproval of WHO. And it will take long before everyone is vaccinated.

    Please, make some kind of plan. The army commander and the president don't have a clue. All they know is a military action. Isolation only will bring devastating situations. People are dying of malnutrition and lack of medicins. People are very scared, they need to rely on health experts. And every expert in the world says : test, test, test and act on that information. 10,000 tests per day is too few
