True status of Covid-19 Delta variant, visible in next 2 weeks! Featured

President of the Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists and Professionals Ravi Kumudesh says a ‘teachers cluster’ accusation is not valid as what we are still experiencing is part of the 3rd wave of Covid -19 in Sri Lanka.

He further stated, in his opinion, the extremely virulent Delta variant was spreading in Sri Lanka even before the rise in patients following the Sinhala and Tamil New Year.

Danger of more sub-types of Delta!

With the spread of the Delta variant around the island, there is a danger of more sub-types appearing, according to Dr. Chandima Jeewendra of the Department of Immunology and Molecular Medicine of University of Sri Jayewardenepura.

He added that gene analysis is done on patient samples routinely to track any such developments.
