Samagi Jana Balawegaya Parliamentarian Nalin Bandara says the failure by the government to reach intelligent decisions will result in numerous deaths owing to the coronavirus within the next one and a half months.
Joining the debate in Parliament today, MP Bandara said the coronavirus situation in the country is far worse, opposed to what the government is attempting to portray.
The MP said the government at present assumes that it contained the coronavirus the best in the world, adding that from the inception transfers were issued to professionals such as Dr. Anil Jasinghe, Dr. Paba Palihawadana and Dr. Palitha Abeykoon.
He charged that the current government never prioritised health units during the decision-making process.
He claimed that the actions of the government translate their disregard to the elderly, as they are the most vulnerable and the largest group amongst COVID-related deaths.
