Anti-Covid-19 efforts should continue until last case - GMOA

Secretary of the Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA)- Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge says that anti-Covid-19 efforts should be carried out until the last case as a large group of contacts have already spread through the society.

Sri Lanka is under the risk of seeing cluster cases and if testing is not increased as soon as possible, nothing can prevent the situation from getting worse, he adds.

Noting that Singapore faced the same situation a few months back, Dr. Aluthge adds that today, the situation in Singapore had got out of control since then.

If the condition worsened and around 100 clusters were discovered, leading to a higher number of cases and and fatalities, our health system would collapse, Dr. Haritha Aluthge emphasises.
