Quarantine centre in each MOH division proposed

The Sri Lanka Public Health Inspectors Union has proposed the government take measures to open a quarantine centre in each Medical Officer of Health division in the country.

Chairman of the Union Upul Rohana said the proposal was made in light of limited space in residences to quarantine persons suspected of having contracted COVID-19, amidst the prevailing circumstances.

Therefore the Union suggested the government utilize and equip buildings that are presently unused as quarantine centres for this purpose.
