The Sri Lanka Public Health Inspectors Association says that due to a new circular issued by the Director-General of Health Services, there will be fewer reports of corona infections in the country in the future.
However, it is not a shortage of infected people, President of the Association Upul Rohana said.
He added that the new circular had instructed the quarantined persons on how to proceed with their release and the investigation of their FirstClass associates.
He said that the first-class associates, who have been quarantined for 21 days, have been instructed to be released without undergoing a PCR test and therefore there will be a decrease in the number of corona infections in the future.
In this situation, there is a risk of clusters forming in the society in the future as there is no investigation into the identities of the first class associates, said Mr. Upul Rohana.
