Bio-secure bubble is not absolutely foolproof - virologist
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.”
