Workers attached to the tourist hotels requested the Tourism Ministry to take steps to vaccinate them against COVID-19 as frontline force, other than vaccinating MPs, Hotel Employees' Centre Organizer Jayathilaka Ranasinghe said.

He said this in a letter which he had already sent to the Ministry Secretary.

"Hotel Employees work closely with overseas tourists who visit the country even during the present pandemic situation.

Children under the age of 12 who come to the country are not going through  PCR test formalities, as the children's parents express their displeasure over such a regulations.

Therefore, people who are employed in the tourism sector needed to be protected as they would be the first contacts of tourists. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    The handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in Sri Lanka is a total mess. There is no plan. One set of jokers meets the Joker in pack by the sea and says we need priority. Then another set of jokers meet the joker in the pack and says we need priority. There is no sufficient vaccine in the country and also no money. No vaccines have still been placed on order and confirmed.
