Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa emphasized that special attention should be paid to protect those who are suffering from non-communicable diseases, from COVID-19 virus.

Medical experts point out that 93% of the COVID deaths reported in past few days in Sri Lanka, as well as in other countries were due to the infection by corona virus of people suffering from non-communicable diseases. People with heart ailments, diabetes, kidney problems and cancer are more vulnerable to the virus. Most of the deaths have occurred without displaying symptoms of COVID-19 and subsequent PCR tests confirmed that they were infected.

President directed relevant parties to give priority to address this situation and disseminate applicable guidelines and conduct awareness campaigns soon to protect those suffering from non-communicable diseases and to prevent from infection.
