According to the Chief of the Epidemiology Unit of the Ministry of Health, Sudath Samaraweera, the Welikada Prison has identified more than 300 PCR tests after a corona case was been found in the prison. He says that, according to the results, no infections have been reported so far.

Samaraweera said that all of them have been sent to quarantine and PCR tests will be carried out after this time. 

Meanwhile, he said that they had also been conducting tests at the Kandakadu quarantine center where the infected person had come from.

The head of the Epidemiology Unit urges the public to follow the instructions provided by the government to maintain personal distance, as there is no known infection in the external environment, but these people can be infected by the unidentified person.

He also added that random samples from the outside society are constantly being tested to detect such infections.
