- Fresh decisions would be made if only there is any necessity to do so
Necessary decisions will be made after evaluating the recommendations of WHO and steps taken by other countries to face the new COVID variant, Omicron, the Health Ministry said.
Deputy Director General of Health Services Dr. Hemantha Herath told a media briefing yesterday that the fresh decisions would be made if only there is any necessity to do so.
“A special meeting of the Advisory Committee on Communicable Diseases was convened yesterday to review the current scenario in terms of the challenges posed by Omicron,” he said.
“Accordingly, the Committee will put forward relevant recommendations and the decisions would be made accordingly,” he underlined.
