Health authorities have attributed the main reason to individuals who contracted COVID-19, experiencing various illnesses post recovering, to undue fear.
Speaking at a discussion today Specialist Dr. Priyankara Jayawardena said an individual can regain good health after recovering from the coronavirus if they continue to follow health and safety protocols and maintain good mental health practices.
Dr. Jayewardene said he personally does not feel a difference after recovering having contracted COVID-19.
Dr. Priyankara Jayewardene said a majority who complained of post disease symptoms explained that they recovered after assurances from doctors.
Also speaking at the discussion Specialist Dr. Anada Wijewickrema said the reduction of COVID-19 cases reported daily due to quarantine curfew and travel restrictions-imposed island wide at present, is a positive sign for the country.
Dr. Wijewickrema commended the drop in cases and hospitalisations especially in the Colombo, Kalutara and Gampaha districts.
Dr. Wijewickrema added that occupancy at treatment centres in hospitals has reduced and claimed the coronavirus situation is improving in comparison to two months ago.
