Another suspect Corona case

A female kitchen employee of the Ahungalla tourist hotel who had been transferred from the Balapitiya Base Hospital last evening with fever and body pain to the Galle Karapitiya Teaching Hospital was later referred to the Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) at Angoda as she was suspected to have contacted with Coronavirus.

The 30-year-old hotel employee had been admitted to the Balapitiya Base Hospital with the above symptoms at around 4.30 pm yesterday and she had later been referred to the Galle Karapitiya Teaching Hospital from where the patient was sent to Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) in Angoda.

The Chinese woman who was referred to the IDH earlier and found to have been infected with Coronavirus had been sojourning at the same hotel for some time before her arrival in Galle.

A hospital spokesperson told the Daily News that so far two suspected cases have been referred to the IDH from the Karapitiya Hospital.
