Parliamentarian Mujibur Rahman says the government has disregarded the threat of the coronavirus and is instead looking at economic benefits.

Speaking at a media briefing today the MP said this is a crucial period as the country and its citizens must be protected from the coronavirus adding the situation in countries such as India is worsening.

The Parliamentarian questioned whether the government was attempting to create a quarantine hub for Indians in Sri Lanka.

Rahman noted the government was being ignorant of the spike in COVID cases and is seeking to gain personal objectives risking public health.

The MP further stated the virus was being controlled according to the whims and fancies of the government.
