Tendency of uncontrolled Covid-19 clusters in Colombo!

Although we think the number of Covid-19 cases are 15,000 in the country, this figure could be much higher if proper testing is done islandwide, Health ministry spokesman -  Dr. Jayaruwan Bandara says.

Random PCR tests done in Colombo Municipal Council limits by yesterday (11) revealed that 5 pc of the samples were positive, and this shows that there is a tendency of uncontrolled clusters emerging in the city limits, he said.

He also noted that the pandemic had claimed over 1.2 million lives globally.
