‘Medicines home delivery from tomorrow’

The Government is making arrangements to home deliver medicines from tomorrow, Health Services Acting Director General Dr. S. Sridharan said in a press statement yesterday.

“It will be commenced from the Gampaha and Colombo Districts and expanded island-wide. Patients are advised to visit the emergency treatment units of the closest hospital at any time if they experience warning signs of the disease. Therefore, the Health Ministry advises the public not to panic at this moment and request fullest support to combat the COVID-19 situation.

“The Health Ministry recommends patients with chronic diseases and the elderly not to attend hospital clinics until further notice. Patients with chronic diseases and the elderly are at a higher risk of getting COVID-I9 because of the congestion at clinic setups,” he said.
