We all have a role to play to end the COVID crisis -Authorities

The Ministry of Health says the country and the people will face a major disaster if citizens and establishments continue to disregard health guidelines amidst the COVID-19 crisis.

Speaking during a media briefing in Colombo today, Deputy Director General of Health Services Dr. Hemantha Herath said the decision to extend the quarantine curfew was taken after considering the prevailing coronavirus situation and therefore requested all citizens and establishments to fulfill their duties.

Dr. Hemantha Herath said the Health Ministry alone cannot control the COVID-19 crisis and said instead of looking for shortcomings, the public must adhere to guidelines.

He stressed that they cannot make special requests and warned that if the current trend continues, it will lead to a major disaster.
