Ravi Kumudesh warns of new COVID variants Featured

Ravi Kumudesh, President of Medical Laboratory Science warns that new COVID variants could be detected from Sri Lanka within the next three weeks.

Since the control of the virus has been given up, we will see the results of that within the next three to four weeks, he said.

He said it is not advisable for the authorities to arrive at a conclusion that the number of positive cases had dropped, solely depending on the PCR test results because there could be mistakes in the PCR tests.

He warned that the control of the virus has been gradually given up, giving priority to the interests of the businessmen.
