Local Opposition Leader a second level associate of a COVID-19 infected person: Health Minister

Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi stated that Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa has been identified as a second level associate of a COVID-19 infected person.

She made this statement in response to an allegation levelled by Premadasa in Parliament with regard to the COVID-19 situation turning into a community spread.

Premadasa has been identified as a second level associate after an employee of a hotel in Yala contracted the virus. The Health Minister stated that the Opposition Leader was given the necessary medical advice following the incident.

While emphasising that Sri Lanka has a strong healthcare sector, the Health Minister requested the Opposition Leader not to break the trust kept in Sri Lanka's healthcare sector.
