State Minister Sudarshani Fernandopulle says that the unnecessary fear in people about covid-19 should be eliminated. She said that due to the fear, the infected persons try to hide the illness and it leads to many issues. She mentioned this during the covid-19 review committee meeting today. She said that there is a wrong opinion in the society about the infected persons and the public should be educated constantly to solve the problem. She further said that the president has instructed to conduct funerals of the persons infected with covid-19, at government expense if their families have economic difficulties. The discussion which took place at the ministry of health under the patronage of state minister Sudarhani Fernadopulle was attended by the heads of institutions who take actions to control covid-19.
