The number of children infected with covid is increasing day by day, said the Director of the Lady Ridgeway Children's Hospital, Colombo, Dr. G. Wijesuriya. The director says that at least 10 infections a week are reported among children who come to the children's hospital for treatment.
The director says that the infected children will be referred to the treatment centers and will be kept in the children's hospital only when there are no facilities in the treatment centers. A special covid treatment unit has been set up at the Children's Hospital.
Wijesuriya called on parents to pay more attention to their children and to keep them indoors as much as possible without exposing them to the outside world.
