People who die of COVID-19 would be allowed to be buried, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said today.
The Prime Minister said this in parliament in response to a question raised by SJB MP S.M. Marikkar.
MP Marikkar said State Minister Sudarshani Fernandopulle, who responded to a question raised by MP Rohana Bandara, told Parliament yesterday that COVID19 is not transmitted through water.
He asked the Prime Minister if the remains of those who die of COVID-19 would be allowed to
bury at least now.
The Prime Minister responded and said “We will allow the bodies to be buried,” he said.(Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)
