Army Commander Shavendra Silva says that it is not possible to say that the corona virus has been completely defeated in Sri Lanka.
He said that as the corona epidemic has not gone away on a global scale, Sri Lanka cannot be declared as a country that has been eradicated from corona.
The Army Commander said that no corona patient had emerged from the society since April 30th and that the number of infected people was increasing due to the influx of people from abroad.
He further pointed out that the people of this country must be very careful and there is a possibility that the virus could be spread in the society by a small mistake. Although there was some belief that Corona had been defeated, it could not be guaranteed and that the virus could emerge at any time.
