Colombo dansal given clean bill of health
All dansal within the Colombo city limits adhered to the hygienic
standards stipulated by the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC).
CMC Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr Prasad Kariyawasam said that
106 dansal which were registered in the Colombo city were checked for
hygiene levels in food and drinks that were served in them.
"These steps were taken to avoid health risks and various other
situations that may have arisen as seen in the past with regard to the
dansal," he said.
He said that strict instructions were given this time around as to
the manner in which dansal were to be maintained. Advice were given to
cover the side of the dansal open to the road, to use purified utensils,
to use water from the main line, to provide boiled water as drinking
water and to have people who are in good health when serving food.
"This is the third time that we have conducted these raids," he said.
Samples have been collected from all the dansal in the Colombo city. The
raids will continue today as well.
