Former Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne today urged the government to use Nelum Pokuna Theatre as COVID-19 treatment centre.

He told Parliament that it is not safe to admit COVID patients in Hospitals with Tertiary Care Services as it could result in the spread of the disease.

“We urge the government to use Nelum Pokuna as a COVID treatment Centre. It could be turned into a treatment centre by arranging beds in its ample space which is not being used right now,” he said.

He also said Millennium Ward Complex at the Colombo South Teaching Hospital and the Polonnaruwa Renal Treatment Hospital could also be used as COVID treatment centres.(Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    Dee Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:10 PM

    What's your 'bright' idea? Spend millions and build another treatment center? As it is we don't have funds to get through the day!

    MP Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:11 PM

    Use your head before commenting, this what has been done all over the world, you clown

    mendis Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:26 PM

    what Booru ??? you are a Booru

    Mohamed Kiyasudeen Tuesday, 04 May 2021 12:49 PM

    Use Masjids, Kovils, Churches and Temples as COVID treatment centers.

    RoaringCreek Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:01 PM

    Good idea as this "Kuluna: is not put to use.

    Dee Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:09 PM

    Actually a very good idea. It's all idle space, and will remain idle till for a few years more!

    Tax Payer Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:10 PM

    Good proposal. the biggest priority at the moment is treating Covid patients lets put it to good use... can't see any drama being played there for the foreseeable future.

    Saranga W Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:11 PM

    lol another idea just like rice storage at Mattala I am surprised these idiots still manage to get the parliament seat

    Lakminiha Tuesday, 04 May 2021 02:38 PM

    Any idea as to how many flights being operated daily via MRIA? Not a bad idea to make use of that too in case an emergency.

    N P Dantanarayana Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:31 PM

    What an idiotic statement! Just like storing Paddy at Mattala Airport.

    chanrith seneviratne Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:43 PM

    Rajitha Seanarathne should keep his mouth shut at least now. The government is doing a damn sight better than what Rajitha Senarathne and gang did for 41/2 years.

    Yahapalana logic Tuesday, 04 May 2021 01:47 PM

    Why not store paddy also in nelum pokuna

    Lakminiha Tuesday, 04 May 2021 02:44 PM

    Did you mean there was more stock than storage space during Yahapalanaya? Nowadays not enough stock even for public consumption. The bitter truth...

    Mo Tuesday, 04 May 2021 02:40 PM

    Looks like govt trolls monitoring all posts and commenting. Every article in social media you get quick response from these appointed trolls to kill peoples comments and ridicule them. Sri Lankan open your eyes.

    Gag Tuesday, 04 May 2021 02:42 PM

    Then use the Nelum Kuluna also so its easy way down for suicide

    Booru Piyano Tuesday, 04 May 2021 02:47 PM

    This guy's son had the wedding at Temple Trees . Why not there? Why not use the Mattala air port again?

    Booru Rajitha Tuesday, 04 May 2021 04:31 PM

    Why not airport control tower too?

    kamal surendra Tuesday, 04 May 2021 05:37 PM

    during yahapalana time thanks to them patients got free stents, free cataract operions and free cancer drugs plus free surgeries for a host of heart ailments. What can the present regime do other than hog wash people with fake honey and river pot throwing....

    sunil priyantha Tuesday, 04 May 2021 05:38 PM

    Good idea...government can only promote honey and throw mutti into rivers...no ideas...

    melanie perera Tuesday, 04 May 2021 05:39 PM

    what ever said and done during rajitha's time health sector was much more organized and equipped....the present lot seem to be groping in the dark

    Gayan Tuesday, 04 May 2021 05:51 PM

    Crocodile man and his silly ideas.

    rew Tuesday, 04 May 2021 07:32 PM

    Great Idea indeed

    GOVT CAN EVEN STAGE A DRAMA WITH ACTUAL PATIENTS
