World Health Organisation informs availability of COVID-19 vaccine shortly – Pavithra
The World Health Organisation (WHO) had informed the Health Ministry that a vaccine approved by the WHO may be available for COVID-19 shortly and the ministry was preparing for that, Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi said yesterday.
In her reply speech on the adjournment debate, she told Parliament that the WHO had instructed the ministry to prepare the country for the vaccine.
“The WHO has advised us to prepare the country for the vaccine. They have not informed us exactly what the injection is. The ministry is preparing for that at the moment,” she said.
The Minister said even though the opposition claimed that COVID-19 had spread in the community, none of the health ministry or the epidemiology unit has confirmed it as yet.
“It is a technical matter to confirm whether COVID-19 has spread into the community. It should be done according to criteria of the WHO,” she said.

Why rely on Vaccine to chase Covid?
Why not learn to wash hands as manay times a day as possible?
Why not stop spitting and blowing your nose in public?
As a Govt, why not increase food safety and safe handling of food standards including training, education and safe containers?
The live food handling (fish and meat and cooked food) standards are atrocious.
Better focus on safety and hygiene rather than kill the middlemen in the food chain.
Glad to hear that. D.J. Rump’s dirty hand’s won’t be able to grab all doses to win his election and to divide the population against each other further.
Leila. Where is this mighty powerful christian and catholic God who created this world and all of us when we are suffering in hell. Or is he having a good laugh plying a cruel joke on us.
The God exists, not only Catholic and Christian, but in all faiths.
Unfortunately the Evil Leadership in some organisations (eg: WHO) and in some countries (eg: China) are strong and are working towards the destruction of humankind and domination.
There are many bystanders who are standing by and cheering the EVIL on its destructive path.
I agree with Leila.
It is only US, Autralia and New Zealad which stood up to the terror unleashed by China (Covid 19) and the support provided by the Evil Face in WHO.
The US went further and cut funds to the WHO.
These 3 nations are planning the welfare of their countries in future.
For the next 5 years, at least, there will be no tourism, no sports festivals international and tighter air travel.
The WHO’s betrayal of the World’s Population in poorly managing the pandemic and siding with the Covid 19 perpetrator, China, is the core cause of the rapid spread and devastation caused by the disease.
The WHO’s top leadership is the ‘Face of the Devil’.
The US is the only Country to stand up to the evil WHO by withdrawing its funding.
Gamini. On a personal note what are you going to do if for the next 5 years, at least, there will be no tourism, no sports festivals international and tighter air travel. I am fed up stuck indoors. I know China is the culprit. Now they want to test their untested vaccine on Sri Lankem public as they are doing a favour but only to use them as gin-pigs. China is dominating the world and a week governments are magnets for them to explore. They will take more than they give.
I have not heard more abstruse comments as those above, particularly from LM. Merely stating that God exists does NOT make it credible. You believe that a hypothetical God created everything – so God must have created the corona virus too and so he/she must be responsible for this destructive pandemic !! You also speak of evil leadership in WHO and in China – such ridiculous comments are NOT HEALTHY from a supposedly sane individual.
Mr Michael Fernando. Do you know why we all die. Because Adam ate from the wrong apple tree and this kind forgiving God gave us the death penalty.
Ranjith. You are perfectly right. Religion is based on man made myths and catholics and christians are forced to believe this mythology !! Just imagine what this can do to a child with a developing brain !!!!
