The health sector says gatherings that took place in various parts of the country over the weekend could result in a resurgence of COVID-19 cases in the country.

Speaking during a media briefing in Colombo today, Deputy Director General of Health Services, Dr. Hemantha Herath urged the public to act more responsibly in future.

Dr. Herath said there is no satisfactory decline in the number of coronavirus infections adding it was unfortunate to see the public acting in an irresponsible manner.
