GMOA requests declare Emergency

The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) requests the Government to declare a State of Emergency if the existing laws are not adequate to control the COVID-19, GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge said.

Addressing a press conference held at the GMOA HeadQuarters in Colombo yesterday, he said that unnecessary movements of people within the country should be strictly banned and the people who break the law and order should be severely punished in order to halt the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

Dr. Aluthge pointed out that the areas with many COVID-19 patients should be identified and locked down to stop the virus spreading to other areas of the country. Contact trading should be done accurately and the quarantine process should be applied to the identified persons.

“The next two weeks are crucial for Sri Lanka when considering the pattern of COVID-19 cases reported from Sri Lanka,” he added.
