The number of children hospitalized with Covid infection has increased, according to Dr. G. Wijesuriya, Deputy Director of Health Services.

He said that currently there are 50 children receiving treatment at the Lady Ridgeway Hospital.

Further, he said that some of the children admitted show no symptoms and it was confirmed that they have the virus through the Rapid Antigen Test.

Although it is gratifying that a child has not died due to the Covid virus over the past three months, this situation should not be ignored and further action should be taken, he said.
