The number of people infected with the Delta variant in Sri Lanka has begun to spiral, going beyond 60 today.

The Ministry of Health said that another 30 people were detected with the variant in 14 areas.

  1. By the time the corrupt scum in parliament secure the necessary vaccines, many of our dear citizens will be dead. Ring your Ministers as often as possible and ask them why they have condemned innocent people to death.


  2. You are race which follows the West and insults Gandhi. Your media and your leaders didn’t say a word, when the Australian Government deleted my citizenship and brought me to the street for making awareness of the Australian Aboriginal people’s and refugees’ hardships. Furthermore, you do not respect or value the knowledge. I really hope that COVID 19 would clean up the dark minds to save the humanity, otherwise, you will eat each other.

  3. I have been tell you, but many of you didn’t listen. Do you think that wealthy countries will continue to support your people while your leaders become extremely wealthy by ripping off the country?

    The judgement day is coming…

    Not only politicians, most of you cheat, it is your lifestyle. Teachers cheat at schools to make money from tuition classes. Government servants work only 4 hours a day. Police and customs officers are corrupt. Politicians are ripping off the country. If this kids of people continue to breed like rabbits and multiply corrupt society what is the hope for this world. Time has come for you to face the judgment day.
