Sri Lanka will allow burial of COVID Victims : Prime Minister

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has announced that Sri Lanka will start the burial of remains of COVID victims.

The Prime Minister informed Parliament today(19th Feb) that permission will be granted for burials in the future.

His response comes to questions raised by the Opposition MP SM Marikkar as to why burial is still not being permitted, after State Minister of Primary Health Care, Epidemics, and COVID Disease Control, (Dr.) Sudarshini Fernandopulle announced in Parliament yesterday that the coronavirus does not spread through water.

Concerns were raised by various parties, including the Opposition, over the forced cremation of Muslim COVID victims in the recent past, media reported.
