By Nirmani Guneratne
Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Ashok Abeysinghe said from finances that have been set aside to construct physical training centres and highways, the Government should purchase the requisite vaccines to combat the spread of COVID-19.
The MP also urged the Government to refrain from placing its faith in myths and instead use scientific data to tackle the spread of the fatal illness.
Abeysinghe called on the Government to utilise a sum of Rs 650 million that has been allocated for the construction of physical training centres to purchase COVID-19 vaccines.
