Health inspectors say situation in Colombo uncontrollable

By Vyshnavy Velrajh

The Public Health Inspectors (PHI) Association has warned that the coronavirus situation in the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) city limits is uncontrollable at present.

PHI Association Secretary M. Baalasooriya told the Colombo Gazette that a high number of patients are being detected from areas under isolation.

He said that infected patients are also being detected from other areas within the CMC city limits.

Baalasooriya pointed out that following the detection of a patient, measures must be taken to hospitalize that person, trace close associates, conduct PCR tests, and place them in quarantine within the course of the day.

Stating that Sri Lanka is currently recording an increase in deaths due to COVID-19, Baalasooriya said a large number of deaths are being reported from the Colombo Port area, Modara, and Borella.

The PHI Association Secretary said that despite various containment measures being implemented, the spread of the virus and death toll continues within the Colombo Municipal Council city limits.

Most of the recent deaths reported in Sri Lanka from the coronavirus have been from Colombo.

The people infected by the virus have also been mostly from Colombo over the past few days. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. if as you say the virus is uncontrollable then the positive pcr test numbers would reflect in the death rate ,fyi there is on average 40 deaths per DAY in Srilanka,of those 40 ,20 are sugar related the rest old age smoking car accidents and suicide etc
    so why the scare tactics over a few positive flu cases,?if there was a pandemic then there would be many thousands of sick people ,which there is not there are alot of positive cases of the virus with NO SYMTOMS surely there should be some alarm bells ringing in your head as to this con….dont get fooled by this hype to reset this world and destroy the middle class which i presume you are a part of ? tell the truth or face your karma
