With a rise in the number of persons being infected with seasonal influenza and the increase in the number of deaths reported journalists in Matara with the collaboration of the Matara Passenger Transport Company (MPTC), Matara District Pre-school Development Foundation and the Lakshman Yapa Foundation carried out a series of awareness campaigns to prevent the spread of the virus.
