Vaccine Thieves Of Sri Lanka

By Arundathie Sangakkara –

Sri Lanka is a country like no other, obviously. There is nothing that is not stolen in this enchanted island. From a bra drying in the clothes line, to Central Bank, jewellery stolen from exhumed corpses to durian fruits- every thing is unashamedly stolen from each other’s backyards, vaults, graves and trees.

One can reflect on lost durian fruits and bras with philosophical jocularity.

But the laugh buck stops when politicians, so-called freedom fighters, so-called liberal artists, man married to the Minister of Health, so-called unbiased media personnel, the military, cronies of politicians, the rich steal the vaccines from the people.

It literally stops being funny.

Covid-19 is killing people in Sri Lanka exponentially and the death toll just passed a thousand. These thousand deaths are the artificially reduced, “medically diminished” numbers. Those numbers are sugar coated as cardiac arrest, kidney failure or cancer. In the coming 100 days, over a million new case are expected to be detected due to the uncontrolled transmission of the disease in the community.

Yesterday in an unprecedented bout of moral lucidity, the Government Medical Officer’s Association (GMOA) has suddenly issued a statement calling for an investigation in to the “gross irregularities in the vaccination programme”. Oh, hello good morning GMOA, you have woken up, useless darlings! Well done, well done!

Thief Number One: Pavithra’s Husband

Vaccine thief Number One is Kanchana Jayaratne, husband of health minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi. Ex-police officer by training, he is now the Ali Baba of vaccines. On 17th, 18th and 19th of May 2021, he personally conducted illicit “vaccination clinics” in the Quality and Safety Secretariat of the Ministry of Health situated in the premises of the Castle Street Hospital for Women. These Sputnik vaccines were inoculated to cronies, family members, VIPs and VVIPs. The highly effective Sputnik vaccine remains an extremely valuable commodity and a tool of political safarish. You give the vaccine and I owe you loyalty, votes, favours, whatnot. Yesterday, after a social media expose by Colombo Telegraph editor Uvindu Kurukulasuriya, the VVIP vaccination “clinic” was hastily aborted leading to the Health Minister’s husband fleeing Castle Street Hospital for women, literally vanishing.

Shame on you (A)Pavithra the impure!

Pavithra and Kanchana

Thieves Number Two: Ministers, Ministers, Ministers!

We all know that the politicians can be the scum of the earth. We also know that in Sri Lanka, the word politicians are synonymous with the word thief. The list of ministers who have embezzled the vaccine, mainly through Kanchana Jayaratne are pretty much endless. Most notable is Keheliya Rambukwella who has accessed over 2000 doses of Sinopharm, inventing a risk group called “media professionals”. These “media professionals” include his servants, family, cronies and the staff of Media Ministry who have no eligibility to be selected for vaccination over the general public. It is also reported that minister Bandula Gunawardane has invented a similar “risk” group in a cheap vote touting stunt vaccinating “artists”.

Which brings us to a dangerous category. : pretenders of morality- the “artists” who jumped the queue.

Thieves Number Three: Queue Jumper Artists And Media Personnel

Some of the artists aforementioned are high profile “liberal” movie makers and actors in the caliber of Asoka Handagama, Prasanna Vithanage and Chandani Seneviratne, the person of “Pryathnaya” – a so-called movement for justice. In complete violation of the WHO mandated scientific order of vaccination of persons, they too have received the vaccine. When questioned on social media Handagama has responded with a hilarious justification of him being the ‘household shopper boy” to his twenty-four-year-old daughter! He refers to his act of moral violation an act of national service of not infecting his daughter who is “working from home”, thus making him eligible to jump the queue to obtain the vaccine, courtesy Bandula Gunawardane. He further fabricates stating that a “doctor called him from a hospital and invited him to have himself vaccinated”. This is the first time it is” reported” that hospitals, amidst serious work crisis during a pandemic, call specific artists, in violation of all health ministry guidelines of vaccination! Oh, the hubris! Oh, the script!! Well done, Handagama, well done!!

Shame on you.

When thousands of ordinary men and women in old, vulnerable ages are standing in inhuman queues to obtain the vaccination, “artists” with no particular added risk, violate justice; they violate the principle of equity.

The peacock dancing in self intoxication of its feathers does not know that its bottom is naked.

The queue jumpers of the media are no better, shamelessly negotiating the vaccination through minister Keheliya Rambukwella. How is this any different to obtaining laptops and car permits from Mahinda Rajapaksa?

Thieves number four: The Rich And The Privileged

In an astounding revelation on social media, it has been reported that the chamber of commerce has intervened to get the corporate giants and well-connected corporate sector individuals to “book” the booster dose of AstraZeneca vaccine by paying Rs 5000 per dose.

The AstraZeneca vaccine was a gift from the government of India and the COVAX programme to the people of Sri Lanka. No civilized government in the world is selling any Covid-19 vaccine. All Covid vaccines are purchased or gifted between governments in the name of humanity to save all from death by Covid-19. When nations such as Bangladesh, Bhutan and African republics are doing better than Sri Lanka in vaccine coverage of its people, Sri Lanka stands out as a decaying moral skeleton of a nation where Sudarshani Fernandopulle a so-called specialist of community medicine has come out, dressed up and all, appealing to the private sector to procure the AstraZeneca booster dose! This failure of a woman who has no shame or insight in to the concept of vaccine justice in a pandemic should be reviewed by the institution that awarded her the post of a specialist in public health!

Who gave her the right to commodify the vaccine, a humanitarian weapon, in to a commercial weapon?

Who gave the husband of the Minister of Health, the politicians, the rich, the artists, the media persons the right to turn the vaccine in to the political weapon? A tool of bribery?

It has been reliably reported that former parliamentarians Malik Samarawickrama and Mangala Samaraweera obtained the first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine by requesting it from Namal Rajapaksa.

Who is Namal Rajapaksa, in this pandemic, to decide if two ordinary citizens such as Malik Samarawickrama and Managala Samaraweera should get the vaccine over those living in risky circumstances such as underserved settlements, fish markets, what not?

Can Malik Samarawickrama deny this?

Will Managla Samaraweera deny this?

Can Rosy Senanayake, the Mayor of Colombo deny that she vaccinated her depraved, shameless, pseudo-elite Hi Magazine friends, her cronies, their domestic servants over the poor and dispossessed?

All of these politicians, the rich and the well connected are getting vaccinated in the sly whilst the poor and the law abiding are standing in queue. This is the reality unfolded before our eyes. These politicians are together across party lines. They are shamelessly united in their own survival in the give and take business of the vaccine.

At the Army Hospital Colombo, the booster dose of AstraZeneca vaccine could be obtained for Rs 10,000 per dose mediated by the husband of the Minister of Health Kanchana Jayaratne. All his ten fingers are all over the vaccine pie!

Lick them well, boy, lick them well.

Three Outliers In Politics

The JVP parliamentarians Anura Kumara Dissanayake, Vijitha Herath and Dr Harini Amarasuriya remain unvaccinated waiting their legitimate turn. In this sordid violation of science and humanity, where so called liberal artists and media personnel are behaving like Namal Rajapaksa and Pavithra Wanniarachchi the line between liars and truth speaker are becoming thinner and thinner. Ideology in decaying and they are all the same.

All putrid, all without moral clarity.

They are all vaccine thieves, literally or by proxy.

Just three JVP parliamentarians remain, to the best of our knowledge, standing apart. Standing with the people who have been forsaken in this pandemic.

Shame on this government that is driving its men and women to suspend their conscience by denying them the vaccine and the booster doses. Shame on them for usurping the vaccination programme from the medical professionals and militarizing it. Making it a business. Shame on them who have stolen the dignity of the people and their right to life.

Shame on all of you thieves.

Shame, shame, shame.

        There is soon going to be a Covid Tsunami. Even a small % of inflected can easily fill up the ICU beds. Credit for building temporary hospitals but the issue is lack of ICU / critical care. I do not see any mass vaccination in near future. Other than Chinese and Russian others are very hard to come.

      Sri Lanka belongs to Sinhalese Aryans. Middle East Arabs lands belong to Arabs. There is no harm in them robbing or taking their land wealth and in fact, that money always rotating their country, whereas in Sri Lanka (Heladiva) wealth robbers are Tamils and Muslims and this is a well-known secret also. Go to the history of Sri Lanka(Heladiva). We all know Indian Bohara Community brought the money from India and set up companies in Sri Lanka

      NF,

      The respectable and dignified nature is no longer acceptable in SL society today. In my childhood, the respect of the life was above everything.
      Each time, visiting the country, I feel, Hamuduruwos should not have the right to flirt theh young girls keeping them on BOMALUWA (Kelaniya temple) but they have been up to that as if cheevaradhariyas have the right to do so. If they really want to continue such behaviours why not derobe themselves ? That is why I fully stopped giving free food (alms) to them for some time now. Instead I offer them to the elderly people/homes for aged/homes for children… and and.. even mercy cows are better than most monks.. No seelawanthakama at all in any of the monks on TV screens.

      Many believe it was the 3-decades war which caused the deterioration of the society. But I think not just war situation, but also egocentric politicians and their indifferent nature changed the society.

      NF,
      not a single man would stand against them today, even if they would be subjected to rape and murder on broad day light.

      I doubt the fulfillment of your hope since the infection-mortality rate in these parts is at worst around 1% and painful infection is not very high either. Even the deity of Seenigama cannot help I fear.
      So you may have to wish a plague or cholera or something worse.
      *
      More seriously, wishing death for anyone is not a nice thought.
      There are some who out of personal bitterness wish the country the worst.
      Do not get carried away by emotion, and kindly avoid such utterance.
      If you really want an evil regime to go, you have to win the maximum support you can rally.
      Cursing wins no good friends.

    I see, most of the time, most of the political crimes get reported in Lankawe, this way or that way, even if somebody blames the Colombo Media as propagandist, no factual reporting. The most serious defect is the mass doesn’t buy it. This report suggest that in next election, the tourist guide Pavitra, Royal home aid Sudharshini, Bandula, ultra drunkard Rambo…… will be getting supper majority for this vaccination procedures. This why average Sinhala mass should not be allowed vote, directly to political candidates, unlike in Westminster system. Westminster system is a way beyond the capacity for the Sinhala Buddhists to grasp it. Only electoral college system employed to select the ruling candidates in Lankawe.

    Like as David “Davo” the owner of the Ashburnham Estate who gave a faked Colombo address to the Minister of Health who he finded online and make friendly on Facebook and got vaccine when it was suppose to be given to older sick people only living in Colombo. This David is 53 and use his provieldge and lies to deceive people to give him vaccine he not qualified to have. He not live in Colombo, he live in country in nice house but make forgery to say he address in Colombo. Meanwhile older Sri Lankan person dies. You check this story and bust foreigners coming here and cheating and stealing as well. Throw this type person out the country. They is illmoral and is dishonest too.

    Thank you Arundathie Sangakkara.

    But do not forget us, the non-Colombo crowd. No one has objected to our being treated as people who do not matter when priority is for people from the western province. Is it because the writers are predominantly from or around Colombo?

    We who live outside the western province wonder why the western province folk have priority .

    In Jaffna only medical people and families get vaccinated.

    Always appalling but never surprising.

    I know of two Ministry of health staff in the eastern province who got vaccinated several weeks ago; one works entirely in-office and the other mostly in-office but with some travel and administrative interface with a medical officer. Both in their early 40’s.
    I imagine their other office colleagues got vaccinated too. Seemed odd to me then that these two got vaccinated before the higher priority groups.

    GoSL has had a such a large majority in the parliament to implement progressive steps in order for the country to become a peaceful prosperous and law abiding. What has happened since November 2019 is just the opposite. The lawyer who represented NGR against his criminal cases became the Justice Minister and that smart Detective placed in prison. Another one escaped to a foreign country. A citizen working for the foreign embassy arrested for no fault of hers. SL has become a country for the crooked and for the 21st Century Dragon. It is unpatriotic to be a President of the country while his son lives in luxury and freedom in USA.
    SL is a country where you get punished for speaking the truth eg Sarath Fonseka talked about White Flag carrying political prisoners and ended up in the Prison.
    Vaccination irregularities can be overlooked if there is plenty of it is available for the rest of the citizens

    It is not surprising that with a lunatic L&O Minister rest of the events tally with the mixed up priorities.

    [nimal fernando,
    “Hope 6.9 million get covid and die horrible painful deaths,,,”]

    If this includes the moron Blind Eagle alias HLD then I dont mind the loss of 6.9 million too since it is worth. 6.9 million comprises of the most stupid creatures on earth and they are of no use to the country except these morons loot, abuse, steal and eat what ever left for the poor. Stealing and abuse of power is the religion in SL. This is why they hate Tamils. This is why they are encroaching into Tamil areas to build pansalas so that they would convert the honest to dishonest morons. The yellow robed monsters are paid to destroy the tamils

    Excellent Expose!. One of the most daring and brave one. Hats off to you lady.
    What a country we are in? We got 1 Mn COVAX vaccines free. We gave the first dose in February to 950,000 citizens. A first grader would have known for that to work we need another 950,000 in April/May. We have none left. Now e go for SINOPharm and Sputnik. Having Rs 1.5 Bn donations- we could have ordered in January. No they were fishing for where they get the highest commissions. Knowing the history- China is the best for crooked deals and we went for SINOpharm. COVID fund 67Mn has been used for advertising (surely big contracts to Hiru and Derana). 10 Ambulances 94 Mn. People say these are jacked up prices.
    We have too many cooks managing COVID. Lalith Weeratunga, General Shavendra, A military officer in each district, Channa Jayasumana, Fernandopulle and Pavithra. A recipe for failure. Absolutely no master plan and a system to give the available vaccines. See the mile long queues in the rain.
    GODSAVE SRI LANKA

    The Covid Tsunami has already begun, much faster than anticipated. (see Daily Mirror ). 46 Covid patients in specially designated Theldeniya Hospital, are reported dead in last two weeks. Covid patients admitted to Kandy and Peradeniya are transferred to Theldeniya and reportedly the hospital has already reached it’s max capacity. Daily death toll is more than 5 in Kandy General and 2 to 3 in Theldeniya. The authorities of Kandy General Hospital have paved way for the rapid spread of Covid due to mismanagement. According to nurses union President Covid patients were admitted to regular wards which exposed non Covid patients and staff to high risk. The reason for death is inadequate oxygen supply for Covid affected patients with Pneumonia. From where I live right now there are smaller states with similar population as in Lanka but having much larger health care services are currently facing a dire situation. I can only imagine the crisis in Lanka, especially in interior villages where no such critical/ ICU care are available. Large city hospitals have already reached their max.

    Just a simple math. Covid designated Teldeniya Hospital has 120 beds is currently fully occupied. So 120 + 46 (deceased) = almost 170 (not sure whether they all are ICU/Critical care beds) patients were admitted in two weeks needing ICU/critical care. Patients from Kandy, Peradeniya and surrounding ares are supposedly to be treated here. So where will the next batch of patients go / get hospitalized ?? Especially in upcountry where estate workers live in closed crowded spaces ( also adverse weather will make it more crowded) a breakout will lead to complete breakdown of health system.

    The speciality hospital I work is of moderate capacity with 200 beds,but our ICU could accommodate about 20 beds. Currently in addition to our regular ICU we have set up a Covid ICU, post operative/surgical unit and cardiac recovery unit are converted into Covid critical care, a temporary ICU is set up in emergency /casualty department and yet all beds are occupied (more than 50 ICU beds). All elective surgeries are indefinitely suspended to save beds and oxygen. Only life saving surgeries are taken up. In the immediate close vicinity we have almost five medical colleges with teaching hospitals and more than 10 private hospitals.(all are bigger and larger compared to us) Today it is near impossible to find ICU bed for a new patient. Though not plenty non ICU beds are available but not Critical care.

    The lady certainly has balls (pardon the pun) to name & shame but, as most would agree, we are shameless & selfish by large. Certainly the politicians have armour plated skins & we ‘respect’ wealth, irrespective how it is earned. The joke of a health minister is not the only backward, dumb minister & now it is confirmed that she is corrupt as well. As for Fernandopulle, her family’s involvement in thuggery & dodgy business in the Negambo area is well known, a shame on her professional integrity. Even Mangala S, for whom I had some respect, seems no better. At least AKD & the JVP have shown their social conscience.

    In UK, the vaccine has been rolled out systematically according to vulnerability & age. Even the PM had to wait for his turn according to the age list. I had the vaccine a few weeks ago & an appointment for the second was given at that time. I did not have to wait in the queue, in fact, advised not to come early to prevent queues forming & the whole process was completed within 10 minutes. In contrast, several of my friends in SL have given up on the vaccine after waiting for hours on an ever winding, slow moving queue. The worst act, the govt. condoning the selling of the vaccine, particularly, when it was a donation, is unforgivable, but more surprisingly, there are still those who ‘see no evil, hear no evil’ of this govt. & its opportunistic MPs.
