Coronavirus patients will be admitted to the closest treatment facility to their homes from today, the Health Ministry said.
The decision was taken at a meeting held today chaired by Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi.
It was decided at the meeting to admit coronavirus patients to either a hospital or treatment facility closest to their homes.
The decision was taken after considering the trauma some families go through when individuals from their homes are taken to a hospital or treatment facility located at a fair distance. (Colombo Gazette)
