Deputy Director General of Health Services, Dr. Hemantha Herath said that there has been an increase in Kovid deaths and this is not a trivial matter.
He also stated that they are investigating whether the increase in deaths was due to an increase in Kovid infections.
He noted that it was too early to say anything definite about the increase in deaths and that fluctuations in Kovid deaths were normal.
Mr. Herath said it was important to have a dialogue on the matter and that the Epidemiology Unit would analyze and report on the deaths.
Be very careful
The specialist doctor said that it is doubtful whether there was an increase in the number of patients without our knowledge.
Hemantha Herath further stated that due to this situation everyone should be very careful.
