The National Operations Centre for Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreak (NOCPCO) will no longer be in operation as it has been converted to Operation Center for Green Agriculture with effect from today (09).

According to Army Commander General Shavendra Silva, the NOCPCO will disintegrate from pandemic related activities.

The NOCPO was established on March 16, 2020 and has been in operation for one and nine months.

"We as a team have been working tirelessly to control a global pandemic in our country as members of a team, led by the President," the Army Commander underlined.

"Strategies and modalities proposed by this group resulted in effective patient management, contact tracing, quarantining as well as vaccination of our entire population," he stated.

The Army Chief extended gratitude to the key members of the NOCPCO committee, the experts, doctors, commanders of the three armed forces, Police personnel and media. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Does this mean the pandemic is over? All done and dusted while it rages with increasing ferocity all around the world. Nothing this government does makes the slightest sense. Health crisis, food security crisis, foreign exchange crisis, fuel crisis, cost of living crisis - boys (and you are all boys) you are doing a great job! Now please go home.

    Sri Lanka is the only country in the world that largely replaced the doctors with Army in controlling Covid. Now, look at the results, we have done much better than all Asian countries in the Covid War.

    It seems no one has understand the intention. Farmers will be hold by neck and will be forced to do what they want as president said in his previous speech.

    After mismanaging Covid now jumping on to another to mismanage that as well. The story is similar to reversed gazettes and AG reversing cases filed by the previous AG now CJ.
