Bio-se­cure bub­ble is not ab­so­lutely fool­proof - vi­rol­o­gist

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - SPORTS - BY BIPIN DANI

Like any other cricket fan Dr. Jude Jayamaha also wants cricket to re­sume glob­ally, with the least amount of risk from the COVID19 pan­demic but the Consultant Vi­rol­o­gist said the pro­posed biose­cure bub­ble was only se­cure as long as those in it limit their ex­po­sure to those out­side.

Dr. Jayamaha is at­tached to the Med­i­cal Re­search In­sti­tute in Colombo and his views were sought by au­thor­i­ties on how and when cricket could re­sume in Sri Lanka.

With­out elab­o­rat­ing on his feed­back to the au­thor­i­ties, the renowned vi­rol­o­gist, said: “The game of cricket has suf­fered in the hands of the COVID-19 pan­demic with play­ers and fans alike.”

“But now play­ers can train in bio-bub­bles but should en­sure that they don’t go out­side the ho­tel dur­ing the quar­an­tine pe­riod.”

“The bio-bub­ble is not ab­so­lutely fool­proof but bet­ter to min­imise ex­po­sure of other mem­bers of the group. But in case one gets pos­i­tive, the whole group needs to be quar­an­tined for a fur­ther pe­riod.”
