    Tamilian sources have been asking why no Sinhalese have died yet and why this Tamilian man died from Covid-19. They claim his death by Covid-19 was carried out by Gota himself as part of the continual genocide.

    So he is not a Sri Lankan national as he holds a Swiss passport. So how come he becomes a Sri Lankan now. Shouldn't he be a swiss national.

    Hope, this report will change as fault and will be reported mistaken-identity and the cause of death of a patient was other reason.
