The three people had earlier been suspected of having contracted the virus.
However, Director-General of Health Services Dr. Anil Jasinghe said that tests have now found that the two people from Rajagiriya, Kolonnawa and the nurse from the Colombo National Hospital had not contracted the virus.
“As per protocol further tests were carried out on the three of them and it has now been found that they do not have the virus,” Dr. Anil Jasinghe said.
He said that the Health Ministry has now cleared them and removed them from the list of patients believed to have contracted the virus. (Colombo Gazette)
