The WHO has announced that coronavirus has reached an epidemic stage globally. In such a situation, all countries have been expected to take immediate action to overcome the disease. As several individuals with coronavirus infection have been reported within the country, taking immediate action to restrain the disease is inevitable. The country will be confronted with a disastrous situation if the disease is allowed to spread.
Hence, we propose that the government, considering it as a national requirement, should prepare a national programme to save the country and the people from the corona situation. The JVP emphasizing that all, despite their political and other differences, should support such a national programme, states that it is prepared to extend its fullest cooperation for such a programme.
Also, we request the masses to follow to the letter the instructions issued by the Ministry of Health to suppress the calamity, not to be unduly concerned but to support the measures taken by the health sectors to prevent the disease.
