Sri Lanka has handled the Corona Virus issue brilliantly well.

I think Sri Lanka has handled the Coronavirus issue brilliantly well compared to many of the developed countries. Please look at the numbers below from the BBC.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-52491210

As you can see Belgium has the highest number of deaths per 100,000 people. I believe the reason for this is that Belgium is a small country with a high population density. Their population is 11.59 million and the land area is 11,849 Sq.miles. 

The population density is 978 people/Sq.Mile. Sri Lanka has a population of 21.67 million and the land area is 25,332 Sq.Miles. Therefore the population density is 855 people/Sq.Mile. We have to also remember that ¾ of the population lives in the Southwest quarter of the island which is very dense in terms of population. The real density is closer to 2556 people/Sq.Mile.

Belgium has had 19.3 deaths per 100,000 people whereas Sri Lanka has had 0.03 deaths per 100,000 people (based on 7 deaths we had up to date). 

Yet some of our lying politicians in the opposition have started their usual lying all over again now that the elections are drawing near. I would suggest that the government should challenge all these false statements unlike in 2015 and take them to courts for libel if any statements are false. Please do not remain silent like in 2015. I hope the people will not be fooled by the lies put out by the JVP, TNA, and SJP  and vote correctly to save the country. 

My heartfelt gratitude to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa along with their team of doctors, and service personnel who have saved us from a fate too fearful to even imagine.

    Ungrateful opposition is accusing the Government that Rs: 5000/- temporary grant given to deserving peoples it is not sufficient enough. But those who govern the country last 4 1/2 years had forgotten they ruined the economy National Development index was reduced to 75% less than 2015, within 100 days taking over the government robbed Central Bank twice, sold national asserts, tourism business was ruined by ignoring Easter Sunday blasts, unpaid bills for fertiliser, pharmaceutical drugs, Construction Contractors, accumulated to billions of Rs. This stupid Opposition unable to show any one good they did to the progress of the country during last 4 1/2 years. People are heartfelt gratitude to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa along with their team of doctors, and service personnel who have saved them and given at least this Rs: 5000/- for the time been. Yes of course if the country was developed by previous Government during their period of time it would have given more than Rs: 5000/-.
    The people will not be fooled by the lies put out by the UNP, JVP, TNA, and SJP People are awaiting vote correctly to save the country this time for ever.

    The Covid-19 situation has helped the most wicked elements of the Opposition to wishfully believe that the emergency created has given them a chance to come out of the cold after being three times rejected by the voting public (the February 2018 local government elections, the October 2019 Pradeshiya Sabha election and the November 2019 prez elections). But it also served to somewhat neutralize the intervention zeal of the global super power (something due to its humbling at the hands of Covid-19 as shown by A Worried Citizen).
