The Ministry of Health has requested the public to pay their attention on the new corona virus reported from Wuhan in china.

The World Health Organization has said that there is no need for limiting foreign travel ban due to the new corona virus reported from China. The Health Ministry has pointed out that there is no necessity for Sri Lankans to limit their foreign travel due to the present situation. The local health authorities are paying their attention to the situation and educated the Katunayake Airport Health Unit on identifying persons with the symptoms of the disease. The Ministry said that covering the mouth when coughing or sneezing, washing hands often using soap, refraining from touching face and nose constantly and staying at populated places unnecessarily will prevent the spread of the disease. The Health officials emphasize that especially children, pregnant mothers and elders should pay more attention about the disease.
