The Ministry of Health is currently looking into admitting asymptomatic COVID-19 patients into specialized centers instead of hospitalization, stated Chief Epidemiologist Dr. Sudath Samaraweera.

Dr. Samaraweera stated that it has been planned to use quarantine centers for this purpose.

Speaking further, he said, “The patients identified through self-quarantine will be admitted to a treatment center. In the future, we plan to keep the patients who do not show any outward symptoms in a non-hospital observation center and take necessary action.

Our objective is to properly manage all the patients, to control the largest cluster we have encountered so far, and to restore the country as soon as possible.”
