‘No door-to-door random testing in Colombo’
False, says the Chief Medical Officer of Health of the Colombo Municipal Council, Dr. RuwanWijayamuni, of ‘news’ spreading like wildfire that they would be conducting random door-to-door RT-PCR testing.
“There is no necessity for such a plan. We are doing tests among high-risk categories and those who may have come into contact with the Kandakadu cluster,” he said, adding that they cannot do indiscriminate testing when there is no evidence of community transmission. There was no point in wasting resources as it is costly.
