The National People’s Power has questioned decisions reached by the government over the coronavirus pandemic.

Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath addressing Parliament today said the time is not apt to boast of one’s political achievements adding that attention must be directed to advice issued by health officials.

Commenting on the isolation orders that were imposed in Piliyandala on Sunday, the Parliamentarian noted the Kesbewa Public Health Inspectors reported the area will be isolated with immediate effect yet lifted restrictions within city limits.

He questioned as to who made such decisions and claimed the government continued to ignore the advice of health officials that has led to the rapid spread of the virus.
