GMOA Spreads India Phobia In Sri Lanka With Malaria Story

The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) yesterday issued a warning to Sri Lankans, requesting them to be vigilant and take precautions in the event Indian nationals were living around the area, as there was a possibility that the Indians were carrying the malaria virus.

Dr. Nalinda Herath

Dr. Nalinda Herath

The warning came after an Indian was diagnosed with malaria recently.

According to GMOA secretary Dr. Nalinda Herath, even though Sri Lanka was malaria free, India was one of the worst countries with the virus, and due to the large number of Indians in Sri Lanka, the country was at risk in contracting this disease.

According to Herath, the Indian who was detected with malaria, has been working in Sri Lanka on an expired visa, which risked the country further at contracting this disease once again as it was likely that there were more Indians who might be carrying malaria, and there was no way of knowing their medical status

The GMOA which has also been campaigning against the proposed Indo-Lanka Economic and Technical Cooperation Agreement (ETCA), noted that if the situation was such even before the government signed the agreement with India, the situation can worsen if the agreement is signed with many Indians coming and working in Sri Lanka. “This situation can also lead to a deterioration of health in Sri Lanka,” Herath warned.

      How about the prostitutes from beloved Para Paksh’s China and Russia and Friendly countries from the Eastern Bloc.

      How about Chinese PRISONERS with all sorts of diseases released in Srilanka to do labour work in the White Elephant Projects of Rapuussa during his time.

      GMOA Spineless and Brainless.
      They should be concerned about the state of health of the nation while they put their foot in where does not concern them. Full stop.

      During the last regime all the misadventures on patients who died in their hands were swept under the carpet because
      They worked in Tandem with the crooks to make MEGA BUCKS.

      It has reached to a point unable to make that kind of money by plundering the country due to the present government and because of the freedom of speech as any misadventures can be publicised.
      Good for us and bad for the Greedy Medics.

      While these so called professionals in the name of Noble Profession killing patients or charging exorbitantly for unnecessary treatments.
      They can get Mega rich overnight forgetting how they got their FREE EDUCATION ! FORGETTING THEIR PROFESSIONAL ETHICS WHICH THEY PROMISED TO ABIDE AT THE END OF THEIR EDUCATION AT THE MEDICAL SCHOOL.

      Same kind of Professional ethics applied of which they forgot when they removed kidneys from poor patients from India and in the War zone Trenches.
      Who got rich ???? not the victims but these greedy Doctors!!!

      They were quiet when the other diseases were sweeping the country.
      Chronic kidney disease , Heart Disease , Dengue , HIV, Sex related diseases due to Prostitution.
      GMOA need to tackle these problems ,

      Bring new programmes to prevent spread of MALARIA instead of scare mongering .
      Hey you GMOA. definitely you can make Money by SCAREMONGERING and create panic among people.
      Was it in the Professional Ethics too.??!! Good.

      That is the level of knowledge of GMOA office bearers who claim to be doctors. They are worried about ETCA as they claim we have no regulations to deal with bad Indian doctors and hospitals who employ them. Unfortunately there is hardly any consumer protection in the Sri Lankan health sector. There are no mechanisms either for penalties or restriction imposed on practising or for the payment of adequate compensation/damages to patients at the receiving end of medical negligence. No prizes offered for guessing who consistently opposes every attempt at regulation.

      Mr.Nalinda Herath should be stripped from his post of secretaryship of GMOA. The GMOA should be ashamed to have as their secretary a guy who does not know the difference between a virus and a normal parasite.

      The University that granted him the degree should re check his ability to be a medical professional. It is surprising how he passed out of of the medical College in the first place. His licence to practice Medicine should be withdrawn in view of his own statements to the press.

      No wonder why the Medical Fraternity does not want a private medical college to function in Sri Lanka.

      To all those brain surgeons who frequent this forum

      Could you enlighten me on matters that is related to brain.

      Is it possible to transplant brain from where it is now and to where it shouldd be?

      If possible will the surgery help everyone who chose to under go brain transplant?

      Is it possible for anyone to tweak brain and make it work possibly rewiring the nerve system?

      Is it possible to use artificial intelligence (planting an intelligent chip) to make their brain work?

      Thanks in advance

        Is it possible to transplant brain from where it is now and to where it shouldd be?

        You would have to hire a Tamil from upcountry to excavate Maras toilet pit to look for his mara-fucked up brain.

        If possible will the surgery help everyone who chose to under go brain transplant?

        His uuru genes wont permit him to have human implant rather a new year slaughtered pig would gather merits for next life by giving its uuru brain to this pakis booruwa.

        Is it possible for anyone to tweak brain and make it work possibly rewiring the nerve system?

        Since he has had no brain Mara has tweaked his testicles whenever Mara wants to enjoy some rila natum.

        Is it possible to use artificial intelligence (planting an intelligent chip) to make their brain work?

        Sorry, that will not work because Mara has tried every hole in fucker’s detestable panchaskanda to impart some serum superimposed sanity yet the fucker is adamant on using his converted foul mouth.

      My cousin got Malaria just last year, and he has never even stepped out of the country. If this Indian was working in the country for several months, how does that mean he got Malaria in India? As far as I know it doesn’t take a year to manifest.

      In the meantime, they stay silent on AIDS from China, STDs from eastern european prostitutes, and continue to profit through kidney removals on Indians.

    Malaria is caused by a parasite injected by infected mosquitos into humans – there are three types of the parasite..
    The mosquito acquires the parasite by swallowing blood from an infected human.

    Hence, presence of those carrying the parasite are a danger to a malaria free population.

    In 1935, 35,000 persons died of malaria.
    The Anti-Malaria Campaign, by eliminating mosquitos which were the carriers, and treating malaria cases who were the reservoir of infection, eliminated this scourge.

    • 2
      3

      Forgot to add that as there have been no cases of malaria for some time, the immune status of the population is very low.
      Hence, if the disease breaks out now, it will be a very severe form,
      and mortality will be a very high percentage of those infected.

    GMOA is a mafia- safeguarding theor monopoly on the poor Sri Lankan patients.
    When APOLLO hospital came up with solid Indian doctors, GMOA bad mouthed them.
    When the Indian Ambulance service to be set up the GMOA said on TV- “if you have an emergency/accident- do not wait fr an ambulance – take a taxi, car or three wheeler to the nearest hospital” World over, ambulances and paramedics save lives in emergencies. For GMOA to be against Indian ambulances when we do not have a proper ambulance service, shows GMOA India phobeia.
    If GMOA doctors are so good, why worry about Indian doctors coming to Sri Lanka

    I think the GMOA is going beyond its mandate of looking after the rights of doctors! I know for certain that Dr.Padeniya for certain is a MR lapdog! How did it happen? Padeniya was barking like a wolf against SB and Nimal Siripala re. Malate med school and threatened to sue SB for 2 or 3 million! Then a ‘friend’ of Padeniya wrote to SB about a fraud by Padeniya! What was this fraud? He had gone on postgraduate study leave to the UK. When he returned early he drew his local salary as well as THE Foreign STIPEND. SB trumped on this and opened a file in the fraud Bureau and wanted him charged. However MR realized the value othis crooked tongue and offered amnesty if he becomes part of Subh Anagathayak! He then offered a prestigious scholarship meant for high level academics to this stupid mediocre doctor who failed his MD once but became a neurologist by manipulating the list in the MOH through his GMOA powers!!

    The million dollar question is: SB knows the whole story of blackmail by MR and he has changed sides!!! If he has really changed sides why is he not pursuing the charges against Padeniya?? I am quite sure MY3 (then minister of health) and Rajitha S who was with MR and now with Yahapaalanaya are well aware of the sleepy character!!! Mr Ranil Wicky why are you sleeping on this guy? Is he playing Padadaya with you as well or are you all playing double games with the Padadaya and Co?????

    GMOA monopoly on health sector must be broken. They have thrived without any form of competition. The GMOA are a law unto themselves and are not governed by any form of ethics nor accountability. All they worry about is making money out of peoples misery and nothing else. I for one will welcome not only Indian doctors but doctors from any country coming to Sri Lanka. The GMOA has done a poor job so far and want the status quo to remain. That way they can make a lot of money and not be held accountable for their medical misadventures.

    Dont gloat over eradiation of Malaria. DDT did it and it killed other insets in the process. It is banned now.

    What is lamentable is that this learned doctor asks us to spy on indians living among us. this is an extension of the logic that ambulance service is a threat to national security. In the same way we should spy on the chinese laptops

    Then what about other foreigners? If checked, they must have and carry a number of diseases. Ask the fucker if he is demanding banning of tourism in SL.

    This motherfucker has had no medical degree from nowhere in the world. Instead he has obtained pukadena degree from Mara. I don’t know why GMOA is keeping a pig in their organization. They should have sold it for newyear’s meat.

    Were he a doctor he must have advised on measures how to detect and control malaria. Instead the fucker is spreading verbal pi-le-riya.

    GMOA and DR Padeniya- before criticising Indian doctors, and ETCA how about looking at your own members whoa re not professional at all. Pls answer the following questions:

    1 Your consultants charging huge fees, how many patients they see a day, and how much time allocated to a consultation. (Answer between 40- 100; each patient 5-10 mts).
    2 How long do you keep your private fee paying patients waiting for the consultation. (2 hrs)
    3 How many of your members (consultants) keep the patient’s records . NONE
    4 How many of your consultants earning 50,000 to 150,000 a day, pay tax and have tax files (NONE)

    This nis why we want ETCA and Indian and other foreign doctors. We are fed up with GMOA mafia

      Sam Silva,

      The main reason why they spread Indian phobia is because if Indians or foreigners come to SL as doctors these butchers in GMOA will lose their monopoly over the lives of patients in SL. Their huge tax-less incomes would dwindle and patients will have more freedoms, choices, better doctors, better heath facilities and hospitals etc. at their disposal. In that case patients would not get intimidated by their conceit, callousness and fat empty poops.

      Once I had this testicle itch and I was in a hurry and channelled and showed my balls to one of the bitches coming under GMOA. The bitch looked at my walla as though looking at a snake in corner and prescribed some irrelevant cream. After successfully trying for some days I myself groped the subject and tried a cream which proved to be successful. The bitch spent only about one minute to examine me and dismissed me like plague! In yet another incident one bower fucker sent a camera tube down my asshole and after treatments failed I went to another one of same bowel expertise. Do you know what the second fucker said to me? He said the first fucker had incompletely fucked down my ass-tube and he too wanted to more fully fuck me till the end of the tube to find out the root cause of pain! See how much they earn by breaking all ethics of medicine. Anyone who has consulted these private medical practitioners would be able to cite number of such actual medically criminal, neglectful, extortionist, irresponsible and unprofessional conduct of these GMOA doctors. At the slightest incident or car permit issue they take to the streets and strike jeopardizing the lives of patients. This so criminal they being doctors. Strike is the last resort of a civilized culture but for the uncivilized GMOA and its cannibal and scavenging doctors it is the first step! The reset in the health sector including the nurses too share doctor genes to a certain extent. During the past we witnessed that though in the present it was subdued.

      Government must forthwith allow foreign doctors to practice in SL as a test case before extending same to other areas. The laborers too could be allowed simultaneously because there is a huge laborer dearth in the country. Even to dig a banana pit we don’t have laborers and the available few are more expensive than GMOA doctors! As a country how can we advance like this?

      The doctors are going to be opposed to such a move hence government must bring in laws that makes in terroristic and criminal to play with patients lives and impose sever penalties on wrong doers including recovering millions of Rupees that went in to making them doctors out of tax payers money.

    Dr.Nalinda Herat you are bloody disgrace to the Medical profession as Sec to The G.M.O.A you hold a responsible position. If you don’t know the difference between a Virus and a Parasite you should have never passed your degree . Get this straight you are a scaremongering political pain in the neck. There are hundreds of visitors with Malaria infections entering this country without showing symptoms of the acute form of the disease. Chronic Malaria caused by Plasmodium malariae cannot easily be diagnosed as the Parasite persists for many years and can relapse .Even in Australia where i work for the Commonwealth Department of Health in the Quarantine Division we just keep tab of fever cases if suspicious of Malaria infections among other vector borne diseases and follow up with Strict surveillance. and vector control.We have have never had local transmission of Malaria in recent years although we have Mosquito Vectors in Tropical Queensland And the N.T.And Malaria was a problem during the War Years.Not any more

    The GMOA believes that they are superior to any other professional in this country. The medical degree has dropped in standards because of standederdisation and of the A level examination, restricted the entry to the medical faculty. The Sri Lankan medics are working all over the world why not in the reverse. Getting more well qualified will increase competition and enhance medical knowledge among our own doctors. Competition is healthy and protectionism will lead to poor knowledge and will protect only a few politically privileged medics in healthy private practise and not the patients or thr public. Globalisation is inevitable. Stop being like a frog in the well. For a change look outside.
