Every hospital island-wide will be converted into hospitals where COVID-19 patients are treated within this week, Chairman of State Pharmaceuticals Corporation (SPC) Dr. Prasanna Gunasena said.

He said it has been observed that people had shown a little reluctance to seek medical care when they feel unfit.

People are kindly requested to go to the nearest hospital wherever symptoms similar to COVID-19 appear without endangering others,” he said.

People must have been panicked to seek medical assistance at hospitals due to the recent videos and images shared on social media,” he underscored.

He said the congestion at hospitals is being addressed and people should not be scared of reaching the hospitals.

Moreover, Dr. Gunasena said in a situation where Delta variant is spreading like a wildfire in Sri Lanka, it is essential that people must avoid attending large gatherings. (Sheain Fernandopulle)
