Government should come up with some mechanism similar to a National Government so that the Opposition could also play a role in overcoming the present crisis with regard to the COVID- 19 Pandemic, SJB MP Mayantha Dissanayake said yesterday.

Mr. Dissanayake told a press conference that the Government should at least seek the support of the Opposition parties in Parliament in the event of thinking of a special mechanism to overcome the pandemic.

“Our party Leader Sajith Premadasa has already stated that his party will support any constructive programme which the government would come out with and therefore this situation should be made use of,” he said.

Mr. Dissanayake said providing the vaccine to 84, 000 was not sufficient. “My opinion is that at least 100,000 COVID vaccines should be provided daily. Canada, which has a population of around three million, has provided more than 100,000 vaccines daily,” he added.(YOHAN PERERA)
