The Samagi Jana Balawegaya says a stringent investigation must be conducted into charges that a million vaccine doses went to waste and reports of coronavirus data being concealed.
Speaking at a media briefing today, Parliamentarian Ashok Abeysinghe said a stringent investigation must be conducted into the charges.
The MP said Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison yesterday stated that 80% of the population must be fully vaccinated in order to mitigate the coronavirus, adding that Sri Lanka has fully vaccinated only 20% of its population thus far.
He questioned how long the government would take in order to administer vaccine doses to the remaining population in the country.
MP Abeysinghe charged that a government member himself stated that coronavirus data is being manipulated and that an Army member and two doctors are involved in the process, adding that an investigation is yet to be carried out.
