-Must wear face masks

While saying Covid-19 situation at the Kandakadu Treatment and Rehabilitation Centre had been brought under control, Army Commander Shavendra Silva stressed the need to wear face masks when going outdoors.

“533 coronavirus infected persons have been so far reported from the Kandakadu cluster of which 444 are inmates, 64 are staff members including counsellors and 25 are contacts of original patients,” Army Commander said.      

He said all the people, who had maintained links with Covid-19 patients at the Kandakadu Treatment and Rehabilitation Centre, had been placed under quarantine and the health authorities continued to carry out PCR tests.     

Moreover, Army Commander said there was no risk of a second wave of the virus at this juncture where the prevailing cluster had come under control and added it had been only confined to selected areas.   

Meanwhile, he said nine cases were reported yesterday, of which eight were returnees from foreign countries and one was from the Kandakadu cluster.

The toll of Covid-19 cases in Sri Lanka stands at 2,674 while 2,007 patients have recovered and been discharged from hospitals. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Senior medical professionals are saying community spread has begun, what can you tell the public about this statement ? Are we to believe them or will you arrest them for false information ?

    You only tell these lies for selfish reasons. You are only safe as long as the Rajapaksa Mafia Clan is in power. When there is a change of power, you must always expect to end up in front of the International War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague, and that would be a good thing, of course

    NOW I HAVE REALIZED, THIS IS A WAR BETWEEN ARMED FORCES AND CORONA VIRUS.

    What a joke. Government doesn't even know from where the first infected person in Kandakadu rehab center got the virus.

    brainmaster Thursday, 16 July 2020 06:00 PM

    he says, there are 89 infected staff and contacts with the inmates. They were all out and spreading the virus. It must be impossible to trace them all, so the spreading goes on. Black clouds !!

    Brand the doctors as traitors or terrorists.

    some countries have law that requires their government arrest and prosecute suspected war criminals. As a result, there are people who might think that they might be arrested and charged chose not to travel to those countries
