    At present in Sri Lanka, gazettes are like cassettes. They can be revered and do not seem to carry any weight. Protests will go on as the people are missing too many meals. They have nothing to loose.

    Stop immediately the total disregarding of Covid19 congratulations at the Cancer hospital Maharagama. No temperature checks at gate, no sanitizer, no washing hands, no social distancing. 200 to 300 immunity compromised patients crowd into one hall. This is a crime. It is not impossible to regulate and still provide care.
