The Government should at least now pay heed to the recommendations and guidance of medical experts and specialists in the effort to combat the Covid pandemic, as the only way forward in economic and social aspects was to get rid of the pandemic as soon as possible, former JVP MP Sunil Hadunetti said yesterday.  

He said the Government has failed to introduce a joint action plan to combat the pandemic as yet and went on to say that some medical specialists have withdrawn from their positions and responsibilities due to the Government’s failed approach in the prevention of the Covid pandemic.  

“Considering this as a national task, the Government should have acted with a joint action plan irrespective of party politics. The Government has failed to adopt such an approach and has proved its failure, where some specialist doctors have resigned from the positions and responsibilities in the Covid prevention task,” he said. 
Mr. Hadunnetti, who attended the occasion to hand over a stock of medical equipment to the Colombo National Hospital, said that the JVP had organised a programme to provide medical equipment to twelve hospitals in different parts of the country.  

He said the current lockdown was not practical and that it had only put the lives of the ordinary people in disarray.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    Medical experts in Sri Lanka are giving wrong advice as most of them are money mongers. If you allow them vaccines, their first priority will be the pets living in their houses.

    In a pandemic of this nature just listening by novices will not do. The jokers in fancy dress running the COVID-19 control beed to immediately replace by medical professionals.
