Borella Medical Research Institute Director Jayaruwan Bandara says the next two to three weeks will be crucial. He emphasized that the people of the country should act responsibly.
He was referring to reports that people infected with the Covid 19 virus have been hiding in the community.
He said that the virus has spread throughout the country with the identifying patients from many parts of the country. Jayarawan Bandara says that if the public does not act responsibly, there is a risk of getting thousands of infected people at once.
If this is the case Sri Lankans will have to face the plight of countries like Italy, Spain and America.
He said that people suspected of contracting the virus should look for prompt investigations rather than covering up the situation.
