To have a balanced reporting on Covid i decided to open up this topic separately.
Covid statistics in Sri Lanka & status quo Panic-580x419


In my opinion Covid is not a major concern. Let's look at the statistics of people infected and recovered and discharged from hospitals. Around 20,000 infected & 15,000 recovered and discharged (figures are approximate) & around 5000 undergoing treatment. The death toll is little over 100 taking into consideration the severity of the second wave. Irrespective of politics its a challenge to carry on with the normal activities and at the same time to keep the pandemic under control. The relevant authorities have done their utmost and have maintained an enviable record, which all Sri lankans can be proud of. To my knowledge there aren't any on ventilators like in US, Europe and even in our neighbouring India.

Even among the dead the majority were suffering from other illnesses like NCDs and mostly elderly. Furthermore, Covid is something which cannot be eradicated until a vaccine is found, it could only be kept under control with people strictly complying with the health authority guidelines and taking the appropriate medications to keep NCDs under control and follow good hygiene. Creating more awareness about NCDs could save money to be spent on PCR tests.

Investors are no fools anymore to resort to selling on Covid fear. As i have stated earlier some expected the situation to worsen to see the market fall to levels that prevailed soon after the first outbreak but it did not happen and by all probabilities is not going to happen. Attempts to instill fear of covid is not convincing at all.  

Let's not politicize the pandemic for petty gains. Its a waste of time!

The key statistic everyone should be eyeing should be the number of active patients under treatment. It is currently at 6,469, and has been on the increase the past three weeks from ca. 4000. Doctors are already requesting the gov. to allow private hospitals to treat COVID-19 patients. And also keep in mind that under the new definition of recoveries, asymptomatic patients that have gone through 14 days of monitoring in QCs, hospitals or under home quarantine that have developed symptoms but still test positive are included in the "recoveries" group. This is perfectly fine, but we just have to hope that these patients follow strict quarantine rules while at home and that our officials keep testing them.

That reflects the number of people who are suffering from NCDs as they are more susceptible to infection. However, the death toll is not alarming considering that its the second wave the country is going through. Asymptomatic cases will be there and there will be people getting infected and also recovering. If the situation is bad it will be reflected on the death toll.
