Over 300 policemen have been infected with COVID-19, weeks after both doses of vaccines had been administered on them, the Daily Mirror learns from informed sources. 

The Police Department has sent a letter to the health experts, raising concerns over the situation, but have mentioned that none of the infected policemen are suffering from severe symptoms of the virus.

Health officials have in turn informed the Police department, that while vaccinations can prevent a severe form of the virus as well as deaths, it cannot, however, prevent people from contracting COVID19.

The infected policemen are being treated in respective centres.the islandwide vaccination programme is ongoing in full swing with over 5 million people above the age of 30 years being inoculated with the first doses. 

Health officials have said that vaccinations were a necessity in order to prevent havoc caused by the rapidly spreading Delta variant.

Health experts have said that while the vaccinations will not prevent one from being infected with the COVID-19 virus it will however prevent the fully vaccinated patient from developing a severe form of the virus as well as dying from the virus. Nearly 300,000 inoculations are ongoing per day. (JAMILA HUSAIN)

    Is it the Chinese Vaccine? It has happened world over and thats why some countries had to give the 3rd dose from a deferent vaccine.

    Sam Tuesday, 20 July 2021 08:05 AM

    Which vaccine?

    Dee Tuesday, 20 July 2021 08:26 AM

    Is it the 'vaccine' meant for the masses or a proper vaccine? If it's the 'masses' vaccine, no surprise!

    In Indonesia millions got sick after Chinese Vaccines. Just Google to find out. On the other hand, one can catch COVID even after vaccines is a known fact. What Vaccines do is reduce the severity.

    Result in not adhering to the health guidelines as observed in manhandling protesters and taking the law into their hands

    Ian Bertus Tuesday, 20 July 2021 09:13 AM

    The reason they are not mentioning the type of vaccine, makes us conclude that it is the Chinese vaccine. Same situation in Indonesia.

    The vaccine (all of them) don’t significantly stop transmission. Instead they reduce severe infection, hospitalisation and mortality.

    Dr Kapila Epidimologist of Rutgers University got both doses of Pfizer in USA went to India to see sick father in law got Covid and died. Are the vaccines effective ?

    Sino-China Tuesday, 20 July 2021 11:40 AM

    No need to give the name of the vaccine.

    Johan Tuesday, 20 July 2021 11:46 AM

    This may be the inferior quality Chinese vaccines Which SL govt.opened their mouth and waited for a long time to get it

    Seqi Tuesday, 20 July 2021 11:48 AM

    As has been found in America and UK having vaccinations does not prevent catching and presenting with symptoms of Covid 19.....it only helps prevents the illness becoming life threatening....but there have been exceptions with only a few thousand deaths in those countries.

    Prof. Tissa Vitharana's very illuminating article in the Sunday Island of the 18th explains it all.

    Herman Perera Tuesday, 20 July 2021 12:49 PM

    If the Policemen are speaking CHINESE, then it is the Chinese Vaccine.

    Chinaform Tuesday, 20 July 2021 12:55 PM

    Are you talking about me???

    june macapagal Tuesday, 20 July 2021 01:07 PM

    The Chinese vaccine is not at all reliable and so many countries have now stopped importing this vaccine because it has not given the desired results. but here they are promoting this vaccine because it is a cheap product.
