Media channels agree with Dulles not to scare people

Minister of Mass Media - Dulles Alahapperuma has requested media channels to provide 45 seconds of their prime time broadcasting time to encourage and motivate the public instead of scaring them over the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is said that all channels have agreed to support this request.

However, the channels have made a request in return, for the government, ministers and officials to bear a sole stance instead of holding onto different views.

The minister has brought this to the attention of the President during the Covid-19 committee meeting.

Adding his voice, minister Basil Rajapaksa too has said that the public trust with regard to vaccination needs to be built.
