156 COVID-19 deaths confirmed for Wednesday (11)
Posted in Local News
Sri Lanka yesterday recorded the highest number of COVID-19 deaths in a single day.
156 COVID-19 deaths were confirmed for August 11, increasing the death toll to 5,620.
87 males and 69 females were among the victims.
121 of the victims are senior citizens aged above 60 years, 35 victims were aged between 30-59.
Given the condition I see in public gatherings like hospitals and vaccination centers, and also the glaring lack of public education via media by all the harping professors, medical consultants and politicians, at the peak Sri Lanka will reach between 300-400 deaths a day. It would have reached even 500 a day except for the government rushing to vaccinate as many people as possible with both vaccines since that seems to be the only way of saving lives.
I wish the harping professors, medical consultants and politicians will do something more useful by going to the TV and tell the public frequently how to wear a mask properly, how it protect the wearer and to what extent, how long to use the same mask, Full immunity won’t develop for another 2 weeks after the 2nd vaccine and therefore, it is essential to avoid exposure to possible sources of virus, even after 2 weeks and both doses of vaccines (except the one that need a single dose), it won’t prevent one getting the disease, but only prevent developing life threatening symptoms and therefore still need to use all the precautionary measures they used before getting vaccinated in order not to transmit the disease to the others and the value of the frequent hand sanitation.
Thank You Indra Akke for your unsolicited advice.
Please Google the submissions last week by Professor Andrew Pollard, who led the Oxford vaccine team, to Britain’s All Parliamentary Group on the Corona Virus.
Many lessons to be learnt from that on the Delta Variant and future variants.
Professor Andrew Pollard can submit measures that fits and possible in Britain. Even with Pollard, all the experts and the wealth, there are 131000 deaths in the UK. I was not talking about Pollard, I was talking about SL experts quite happy to have a go with the video camera rather than doing something useful wit what we have in Sri Lanka, If yo are quoting something from another source on the internet please be civilised enough to quote the link as well instead of asking other people to Google. My unsolicited opinion is as good or bad as all other unsolicited opinions you hear in SL from many medical and university sources hid behind the wall before Dhammikayage pacha thell propaganda.
