Germ intentionally introduced into Influenza injection

It has been revealed that a virus had been deliberately introduced into the Influenza injection given to patients who had been infected with the virus which spread in the Southern part of the country, said Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne.

He said the injection had now been banned, while the specialists who had inspected the injection had confirmed that a germ had been introduced to it.

However, the minister noted that it was not possible to confirm yet if the germ had been introduced locally or in a foreign country, adding that the influenza virus epidemic had been contained by about 95% so far.
