Thirteen Districts Impacted By COVID-19

With the eruption of the Minuwangoda Brandix COVID 19 cluster that has already extended into 13 districts, there’s a heightened chance of the virus circulating into the remaining districts as well, Chief Epidemiologist Dr Sudath Samaraweera said.

He said COVID 19 patients had been reported from Kurunegala, Puttalam, Kegalle, Kandy, Galle, Hambantota, Jaffna, Vavuniya, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Badulla, Mongaragala and especially Gampaha.

He said following the detection of the 49 COVID 19 patients including fish vendors from the Peliyagoda Fish Market, there’s another chance of spreading the virus around the country via fish sellers.

Dr Samaraweera said the fish harvest obtained at the Peliyagoda Fish Market had circulated the country and that there might be individuals who contracted the virus from fish sellers and transporting fish across the country.

Thus, Dr Samaraweera asked the sellers who got the fish from the Peliyagoda Fish Market to be warned about the symptoms.

The Epidemiology Unit has taken measures to perform PCR tests in all districts to trace contacts of COVID 19 patients and more than 425,000 PCR tests had been done in the country and samples had been collected to conduct more than 8,000 PCR tests.

Allegedly it’s already spread to Colombo and they should be telling people the truth so that they can take precautions so that they can be safe, and whatever is unfolding there, they’re supposedly being lied to and they’re being destroyed as a nation, although the blame game won’t help, they need to face this as a nation to overcome this, and what steps will be taken to contain it – I suppose the ball will be tossed into the coats of the public.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
