All should support govt to control Covid-19 - Ashu

All should rally round and support the government to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus which has already infected two, former UNP MP Ashu Marasinghe said.

Answering questions by the media at a media conference held at Sirikotha UNP headquarters yesterday, he said according to reports nearly 20 suspected Covid-19 virus cases were receiving treatment at state hospitals today. But a bigger number of suspected cases have been admitted to private hospitals in the country. He said they were able to control the dengue epidemic due to the support and assurance received from the Health Ministry, Municipal and Urban Councils as well as Pradeshiya Sabhas.

He said several national festivals were billed to take place before and after the elections and the spread of the disease could be controlled by limiting people’s participation at these events.

He said the President is empowered to reconvene Parliament owing to the Covid-19 virus if he so desires. “Let us all get together to combat this dreaded disease,” he said.
