President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said that the heads of both government and private entities are accountable for adhering to health guidelines in their respective organisations in the wake of current spike in COVID- 19 cases.   


He said the COVID-19 virus  was expected to spread among groups unless adequate and satisfactory containment measures were adopted.   


“The Kandakadu Rehabilitation Centre is an unfortunate example. Therefore, the President has emphasized the necessity of continuing easily accessible tests related to clusters of people immediately,” it is reported.   


The President made these remarks during a discussion with the Presidential Task Force to curb COVID- 19 at the Presidential Secretariat on Tuesday.   
Although day to day life had returned to normalcy, precautionary measures should not be relaxed as the risk of COVID -19 spread remained high.   


The President highlighted the importance of carrying out simple tests such as regular body temperature checks in the Rehabilitation Centres, prisons, universities, schools and similar places.   


“Wearing face-masks, washing of hands, maintaining social distance are vital under this situation. If you suffer from fever and ailments related to throat, you should refrain from mingling with crowds. Simple health practices, such as these would make a difference in combating COVID- 19”, The President added.
