Release time:2021-05-03 Publisher:Lanka Voice

Experts say Sri Lanka needs a unified COVID-19 mitigation programme to avoid a major crisis like in India.
Speaking to media, President of the Sri Lanka Medical Association Dr. Padma Gunaratne said if the public doesn’t follow a specific lifestyle as recommended by health units, the country may face a crisis similar to that of India.
She stressed if a COVID-19 patient is at home, it is crucial that the patient and other members of the household wear a face mask.
Dr. Gunaratne noted that if the public doesn’t act as one to contain the spread of the virus, the situation may become similar to that of India within the next two-three weeks.
She therefore urged all citizens to follow the guidelines issued by health authorities.
