      The patient who died supposedly from Covid 19 was a kidney transplant patient with diabetes. Seems that Corona figures are now being massaged so that USAID can provide surveillance systems to Sri Lanka for a police state and Robots to counter China’s 5G systems and Huawai?
      Very interesting that the death was announced soon after The United States Department of State and the USAID announced it would provide US$ 1.3 million to Sri Lanka as emergency health and humanitarian assistance to help fight the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
      The funds will help the Sri Lankan government to prepare laboratory systems, activate case-finding and event-based surveillance, support technical experts for response and preparedness, risk communication, infection prevention and control, and more, the State Department said in a press statement.
      In the absence of the progress on the MCC compact grant that has been rejected by the people of Lanka..
      Very interesting as the Easter Sunday ISIS attacks anniversary comes round Sri Lanka will be under Curfew?!

        Kapila,
        Beats the purpose if cases and deaths in Europe and US are higher than even China’s, isn’t it. And how come China’s was mostly confined to the Wuhan province but the whole of Europe and US are affected?

      Ajay,
      Giving UMMA to all Rajapaksas, and the slave groupies is not a bad idea at all. Then country will have a better future after COVID-19 is over.

        Just a word of warning just in case you may have forgotten still ample time an a very good possibility that one of you immediate family member will get UMMA and share it with the rest. I’m sure you all will have a bloody good lough about it that you been a such a hilarious guy. Who knows some nasty character may even say “Hi Lalith jokes on you now.

      I THINK EVEN IF THE TOURIST ARRIVALS TO NEPAL IS MUCH HIGHER THAN THAT OF SRILANKA, they have been able to manage the CORONA CRISIS better than srilankens boast about them.
      :
      The total number of tourists to Nepal in 2019 totaled 1.17 million via air and land routes, a slight decline over 2018 number of 1.52 million. Like every year, the Himalayan nation received the highest number of tourists from India totaled 209,611, followed by China (169,543), among others.Jul 24, 2019

      1,034.118 USD
      Nepal’s GDP Per Capita reached 1,034.118 USD in Jul 2019, compared with 997.885 USD in Jul 2018.

      Tourist Arrivals in Sri Lanka averaged 52151.42 from 1977 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 253169 in December of 2018 and a record low of 5536 in June of 1977.

    A WHATSAPP WRITE UP WORTH VENTILATING ON DURING THE WORK AT HOME HOURS. Copied from an WA sms: CHINA AND COVID 19
    Wuhan to Shanghai = 839 km
    Wuhan to Beijing = 1152 km
    Milan from Wuhan = 15000 km
    Wuhan to New York = 15000 km
    Wuhan to Italy = 8695 km
    Wuhan to India = 3695 km
    Wuhan to Iran = 5667 km
    Corona has no effect in nearby Beijing / Shanghai. But deaths in Italy, Iran, European Countries are ruining the world economy……………
    All business areas of China are safe. Something is fishy. That America blaming China is correct.
    Today 25-03-2020, 10 tough questions to China. (Must read points 6,7,8 &9)
    1) Where the whole world is being affected by this, why did it not spread anywhere in China except Wuhan? How did China except for Wuhan? How did China`s capital remain untouched by this?
    2) Why did China hide from the whole world about the virus?
    3) Who destroyed the initial sample of Corona?
    4) Why did the doctor and the journalist who brought it up be silenced? Has the journalist been exterminated?
    5) When other countries of the world asked to share information, why did they not share the information? Why refuse?
    6) Why was the Director of WHO used to hide the spread of corona from human to human? WHO Director was doing what he did in “Beijing” (China) in January….??? (Were you fixing the plan?)
    7) “There is no need to issue any guideline for any International flight, as it does not spread from human to human”….WHO kept doing this tweet till 11th January. Why???? Today it has been proved that corona spreads from human to human., so
    8) Why did the WHO lie???
    9) There was a minor case in Italy till 6th February. Suddenly Chinese `We are Chinese, not a virus, embrace us` Why did the world`s tourist destination known as the City Of Love come to embrace the people of Italy with placards?

      You mean to say Chinese outsmarted the Americans and Europeans, while we’re just part of collateral damage?
      .
      When the share prices of Chinese technology and the chemical industry started to decline sharp, foreign investors began selling all Chinese stocks, but no one wanted to buy them. Stocks devalued, a week went on, Xi ordered to buy ALL the shares of Europeans and Americans in Chinese companies. I was also shocked to see Xi Jinping wearing a simple facemask to visit those affected areas “Wuhan” at that time.

        “I was also shocked to see Xi Jinping wearing a simple facemask to visit those affected areas “Wuhan” at that time.”
        This is being daft.
        Would one wear a space suit to visit a place cleared of new infections?

      Condolence for the martyr who helped Police and Custom official to fill up their bank accounts with his life.
      Punchi,

      ” 4) Why did the doctor and the journalist who brought it up be silenced? Has the journalist been exterminated? “.

      What is the story of that doctor? I can believe until he was contacted with the virus. That is quite possible. But how did he died? Someone used the opportunity of his bedridden status?

    Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends.

    It appears Coronavirus is not scared of Rana-viruses?
    Are those Single handed generals, Kamal and Shavendra sleeping while on duty?
    How could LTTE slayers allow this to happen.

    We were told Gota had already won the war against Coronavirus even before it appeared and started infecting people in this island.

      Single handed generals, Kamal and Shavendra ordered the killing of more than 45, 000 innocent Tamils after the war at Mullivaikkal in the Mullaitivu District and now sleeping while Corona took the first life and continuing to rampage the Sri Lankans.

    Is this something to gloat about? That will be a funny mindset.
    We can be relieved that the increase is far from phenomenal.
    Although the death rate is far behind most countries the death is most regrettable even if the person had other health issues.
    This is time to act responsibly.

      “Is this something to gloat about? That will be a funny mindset.”

      You should have a word or two with Keheliya Rambukwella who said Coronavirus was nothing to those who won the war against LTTE.

      Many believe Keheliya Rambukwella was gloating.

      Gota is a self proclaimed “STRONGMAN” who said he had prevented Coronavirus. I thought it was funny.

    It is human nature, what ever you do, there will be about 10% that will not like you or your action. Very normal reaction. Remember, even after 30 years of getting blowing at the bus stand, railway station, inside the bank, inside CTB or SLTB bus, only 84% was for the war and 16% did not like it. Some who said, instead alimankada they go to Pamankada, the are still in the recycling list of crooks.
    Any way, NIVAN SEPA LABEWA FOR THE DEAD. iT LOOKS HE HAD A HARD LIFE; DID NOT CARE FOR HIS BODY and THAT IS ALL WHAT HE BROUGHT.
    Italy’s number of deaths for yesterday is 1016 and I hope there are no comments for the Italian govts worse than what we would here in CT.
    Probably, for the above two comments, one comment is from Sajith, the other one is from Ranil
    At present, Italy, Spain and USA are the most sad.

      JD,
      you should be an idiot. U try to compare numbers in Italy with that of SRILANKA… what a joke ß’ meeharako, first try to study a bit.. if you have time to do so. What you ve been doingn all the time is cleaning the back sides of Rajakshes. :::
      Italians met with CORONA CRISISS are reported to be older adults. Most that die are really old. Italy is one of the few countries filled with elderly population. And the second crucial factor is – their numbers at the begining were not controllable so the hospitals in rich Lombadi province were not able to accomadate that numbers of patients.
      This has nothing to do with not having financial source or simialr to do the due sufficiently… even doctors and hospital staffs are sick with COVID 19. Even in US, they say their doctors are caught by the virus. So is the case in UK.
      But due to various factors in tropical regions, not many are reported. That is not unique only to srilanka. Uganda and a number of affrican countries are not yet met with CORONA cases.
      So are the case in some asian countries like Nepal.
      Either they should have reacted at the very begining or… they should have applied any other systems to block it… but our BROTHER duo led DOGs govt failed it at the begining because ballige puthas focused only on GENERAL election.
      Now thanks to FORCES they have achieved some good… but still no good enough to boast the way they continue. Brother Bastard duo are uneducated so that they cant know the danger before the nation with VIRAL epidemy.

    Quotable quotes: “The coronavirus spares no one – even Prince Charles is a victim. We must be very careful because it is more deadly in the elderly. Imagine all those over seventy in Paradise: Gota, Mahinda, Chamal, Ranil, Vasu, Dinesh, Sampanthan. Only My3 is younger – and that is a scary thought indeed!”

    Just imagine if at this Critical situation If that Mr I do not know nothing Dr No Sira and Dr Bond was in charge of this situation. Dr Bond Ranil will appoint a committee and Dr no will say that he has not read any such Corona virus in the papers. Then Dr bond will complain and say I was not invited any meetings by Dr No. Thank god neither of these two or the Pad man is in charge for the Sri Lanka. Still there is a long way to go compared to other countries Sri Lanka is doing well .Let all of Sri Lankans give our full support to the Government led by Gota irrespective of their Race religion and caste to get rid of this Corona menace.

      Dr Bond’s solution to the crisis, “I’ll appoint a commission”. Padman’s solution, “Wear a pad mask”. Dr No – “What crisis?”

      Good idea.
      Tell us who is going to support the people of this island when they face dire calamity from Coronavirus and Rana-virus lead by a psychopathic war criminal fascist. Now his brother is planning to bankrupt the treasury and the small businesses by monopolising retail trade.

      Could you define Sri Lanka.

    I think you must be bit confused. The Psychopathic fascist war criminal was eliminated in May 2009.I thank this for Gota for this. Enabling all Sri Lankans irrespective of their race or religion or caste we
    now at least can go on living with out fear.I am sure if all Sri lankan can give the current government full support this corona crisis will be contained. He will well advised that not get that 225 in the parliament involved in this matter unless it is absolutely essential

      You got everything wrong.

      American Gota should not have been allowed to mess with people of this island. What happens when foreigners are allowed to poke their nose in our “sovereignty”?
      He and his goons committed war crimes and crime against humanity, and accused of killing innocent journalists, …. between 1983 and 2015.
      Law of the land apply equally to all.
      Gota didn’t bring the war to an end nor did he brought peace.
      The foreigner was brought to Sri Lanka by Hindians in 2005 to butcher innocent people as he had plenty of experience in running deadsquad between 1987 and 1991 until he went to chennai to pursue his Master.
      VP the psychopath won the war and two elections for Mahinda with huge support from Hindians.
      Mahinda, Gota, Basil ..clan paid Rs 185 Million to VP to rig the 2005 elections.
      Where did the clan raise such large amount?
      According to the middleman Tiren Alles a neighbour funded the entire amount.
      The clan should have been charged with bribery, money laundering, rigging 2005 elections, …………..
      Sri Lankan state has had the habit of ignoring war crimes which it committed between 1971 and 2015.

      The national hangman Gota and his fellow racists believe this island belongs to Sinhala/Buddhists. Why should others support the racists and pathological killers?

      Maybe VP and LTTE gone, who is going to save the people from the present president, his clan, racists, crooks, his goons, ……………… Therefore people are living in biggest fear, as the country is ruled by a mass killer.

      Science and collective human efforts can contain and eradicate Corona-Virus but not irrational Rana-viruses. and its glorified fascist leaders.

      This shameless madman has not proved his citizenship one way or another.
