Health Minister Pavithra Vanniarachchi, who responded to a question in parliament, said a mechanism is in place together with the Health Ministry and army to trace contacts of COVID-19 patients and added that Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa who visited a Hotel in Yala recently was swiftly informed that he was a second contact.

That was done because of the effective mechanism in place,” she said. Opposition Leader Premadasa said he followed the health advises of the doctors.

Minister Vanniarachchi said Sri Lanka was the first country in South Asia where PCR testing was started and added that it took three months to complete 50,000 PCR tests but 100,000 PCR tests were done within seven days after the Minuwangoda cluster.
