Extend fullest cooperation to authorities – Army Commander

Army Commander and Head of the National Operation Centre for the Prevention of Covid-19 (NOCPCO) Lt. Gen. Shavendra Silva during the daily briefing yesterday (10) said that out of the 12 persons who tested positive for the Coronavirus on Saturday, 10 were navy personnel and the other two were those who had contact with the infected persons, but currently in quarantine. Accordingly, by Saturday night there were 578 persons receiving treatment at various hospitals. Moreover, 259 persons infected with the Coronavirus have made a full recovery and released from hospital, said. However, by last evening the number of recoveries had climbed to 321.

He noted that everyone had made huge sacrifices over the past two months and everyone’s main aim should be to avoid getting infected when the movement restrictions are relaxed this week. He also urged the public to render their fullest cooperation to the Tri Forces, Police and CSD to carry out their duties by complying with the regulations.

Meanwhile, addressing the media briefing of the NOCPCO the Director General of Health Services Dr. Anil Jasinghe said some of the Covid-19 restrictions imposed so far will be relaxed to some degree from today and the public must adjust their lifestyles and practices in accordance with the current situation. He said that people cannot get back to their same lifestyles as prior to the Covid-19 epidemic.

“We should all note that certain words and actions have now been added to our lives with the Covid-10 outbreak. Lifting of restrictions does not mean that the Coronavirus threat is no longer present in Sri Lanka. Eradicating the Corona threat will take a considerable time and therefore, we need to follow the same health practices and social practices that we have been following over the past two months. Therefore, we need to follow the health guidelines, social practices, Covid-19 preventative measures which have now been put into law.”
