    Cheaters .. this may show reduced numbers but not the real spread and that means there will be a lot of positive cases not tested spreading the virus to another large number.. and covid19 Will never be controlled in Sri Lanka and the country will become really worse including economy , health and deaths Politicians only interested in drama, scoring points and rubbish..

    Wow. Great job. Today we can see less cases.

    This is pathetic. Without adequate testing we have no chance of defeating the virus.

    The testing is not done on randomly selected individuals but on contacts of known cases. It is bound to go down with the decrease of cases.

    If no PCR tests are done, it is still better , as there will not be new cases.
