Galle Additional Magistrate Pavithra Sanjeewani Pathirana ordered the apparel factory Manager who provided false information on first level associates and made way for the spread of the virus by violating the quarantine regulations to be remanded until May 31. He was the manager of an apparel factory in Koggala Free Trade Zone.

Bringing the suspect before the court, the Public Health Inspectors said that out of 1,500 workers in the apparel factory, 238 were identified as COVID19 patients from recent PCR tests and thereafter 733 close associates were placed in quarantine.

The factory is operated on daily shifts and according to a complaint, despite the instructions given by the Public Health Inspectors on several occasions, the factory Manager has allowed the spread of COVID-19 by withholding the details of close associates.

A case has been filed against the defendant under the Quarantine and Prevention of Diseases Ordinance No 03 of 1897.
