PHI Assoc. requests people to remain alert

We are still within the dangerous situation

President of the Sri Lanka Public Health Inspectors’ Association Upul Rohana cautioned that despite reports showing a drop in the number of positive cases of Covid-19, the authorities and the people should not arrive at a conclusion that the country is now free of the pandemic.

He said that during the past few days there had been a significant drop in the number of Covid-19 cases being reported, which is satisfying, but it is not wise to assume that the danger of this pandemic is now easing in the country. It should be remembered that we are still within the dangerous situation.

According to the World Health Organisation the danger of the spread of Covid-19 is on the increase and our country alone cannot be exempted from this. We stress that random PCR tests should continue to identify positive cases in the society. It is our belief that without taking necessary steps in this regard the spread of this pandemic cannot be controlled. (JUDE SAMANTHA)

    You are absolutely right we were very safe upto March last year but see how things have changed now. Mamimum precaution and all guidelines must be stricly followed, People living in CMC areas you can see the crowd rushing at various vaccination centres to get the vaccine. Why not you all increase the centres and reduce the intake in an orderly manner.

    we have to agree with Mr Upul Rohana the chair person of the PHI association. Still the entire country is prone to the covid pandamic Thus people from the all areas should be vigilant and should take necessary actions to control the spread of the corona further
