'COVID-19 daily caseload will pass 2,000 mark soon'

The COVID-19 daily caseload will exceed 2,000 in the near future, warns Chief Epidemiologist Dr. Sudath Samaraweera.
Speaking at a media briefing held at the Health Promotion Bureau today (06), he said that several factors can contribute to this.

Dr. Samaraweera also reminded that those who had been vaccinated are still at risk and therefore, must follow health regulations.

Noting that only the public isn't being blamed for the prevailing situation, Dr. Samaraweera said that it is a responsibility of the entire society to curb the pandemic situation.
