Medical experts have requested that Covid patients are given the opportunity to be treated in private hospitals if they wish.

The request was made during a meeting between the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva and a high level delegation of medical experts yesterday (03 Dec) at the National Operations Center for the Prevention of the spread of Covid-19.

Specialist Dr. Maya Gunasekara, Prof. Arjuna de Silva, Prof. Hemantha Dodampahala, Prof. Prasad Katulanda and Specialist Dr. Eranga Narangoda were present at the meeting.

Medical experts point out that if infected people want to seek treatment in the private sector, they should be given the opportunity to do so, as it will reduce congestion at treatment centers and provide opportunities for low-income patients.
