Eliyantha White, who is famed among many VIPs as a ‘spiritual healer’, has been hospitalised after testing positive for Covid-19.
He is being treated at a private hospital.
White splashed headlines after three cabinet ministers hurled pots of his ‘miracle water’ to prominent rivers last year, to end the coronavirus pandemic.
The then health minister – Pavithra Wanniarachchi had hurled a pot into the Kalu river while minister Udaya Gammanpila and Prasanna Ranatunga had hurled pots into the Kelani river.
White himself was seen hurling a pot into the Madu river.
Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi too had tested positive for Covid-19 in late January this year.
