Health Minister accused of deceiving public on community spread

Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi has been accused of deceiving the public on a community spread.

Parliament was told today that the coronavirus was spreading in Kuliyapitiya.

Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa said that the virus was spreading fast in several areas.

He said that there was a community spread around Kuliyapitiya yet the Health Minister is refusing to accept there is a community spread.

Premadasa said that public health inspectors and Government doctors had raised concerns over the spread of the virus.

However, Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi insisted that there was no indication of a community spread.

She insisted that the health authorities are managing the situation well. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Hon Minister of Health has to explain why President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has decided to halt the involvement of the private sector in the return of Sri Lankans stranded abroad. The decision has been reportedly taken as the Intelligence unit has reported that general safety measures have not been followed while certain financial irregularities have also taken place.

  2. This outbreak is akin to a “forrest fire” that will not be contained by mud-slinging, recriminations, and finger-pointing. If the entire country does not unite with a single minded purpose to contain and then eliminate this scourge, then be prepared for a decimation of all the senior citizens of our nation ( your treasured elderly family members).
