Kalubowila Hospital’s Ward 7 closed
Ward seven of the Colombo South Teaching Hospital in Kalubowila has been temporarily closed.
This decision has been taken after it was confirmed that a patient who came to the Hospital to obtain treatments had contracted COVID-19.
According to Hospital Director Dr Asela Gunawardena, a PCR test conducted on the patient had confirmed the patient’s COVID-19 status.
Steps have been taken to direct the hospital staff who worked in the said ward to self-quarantine, and to admit the COVID-19 patient to the Infectious Diseases Hospital (IDH).
