Covid infections and deaths in Sri Lanka sees slight increase

The number of people infected with the coronavirus and the number of deaths linked to the pandemic has seen a slight rise in recent days, the Sri Lanka Medical Association (SLMA) said.

SLMA President Dr. Padma Gunaratne said that the results of the public behaviour over the past few days will be known in another 2-3 weeks.

As a result, she said that one cannot assume that the Covid pandemic is now over.

She called on the authorities to increase the number of random PCR tests in order to detect people infected with the virus in the country.

Dr. Padma Gunaratne also said that there needs to be strict monitoring of the public.

Meanwhile, the SLMA also said that the chances of children being infected by Covid is very low.

There have been concerns raised over the reopening of schools.

However, the SLMA said that waiting to resume schools until all the children are vaccinated is not the solution. (Colombo Gazette)
