While condemning the humiliating posts shared by certain netizens in social media targeting Covid-19- infected- Health Minister Pavithra Vanniarachchi, State Minister Sudarshani Fernandopulle said such acts cannot be approved by civilised people.
She said in a Facebook post that any person irrespective of their religion, race or political affinity could be infected with the virus and that even world leaders of powerful countries have become prone to the virus.
She said not only the health officials but some medical specialists too had been infected with the virus. “We should understand this situation and it is our responsibility to take action to protect ourselves from the disease,” she said.
The Minister said the first challenge Ms. Vanniarachchi had to face as the Health Minister was the Covid19 pandemic and added that the endeavours she undertook to protect the people from the pandemic should not be forgotten.(AJITH SIRIWARDANA)

If "any person irrespective of their religion, race can be affected" then Nature is Boss. So why pray to gods or why fight over race religion. We should be humbled.

The fact that some elected officials made a show of drinking Dammikas Panni for a cure was sad ... The fact that no one ever heard about the Wadakaha Sudiya incident is appalling ... It was immortalized in song . Its not to late to listen to the words of the song... or check out this incident on the internet..

Dr Fernandopulle should not defend Pavithra. She asked for this by her stupid move to support the Paniya. If Pavithra has any self respect must resign for putting the lives of people in danger.
