CURFEW CLAIMS: The strict coronavirus curfews which kept vehicles at home will keep general insurance claims in Sri Lanka down, Fitch Ratings said

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s health authorities have expressed concern over yet another COVID-19 patient to “escape” treatment at a state hospital.

The 43-year-old patient was undergoing treatment at the Welisara chest hospital. According to the National Operation Centre for the Prevention of COVID-19 (NOCPOC), he had run away from the hospital yesterday.

This is the fourth or fifth COVID-19 patient to make a run for it.

The official COVID-19 task force said state intelligence and the Welisara police are conducting a joint search operation in the area to locate the patient. (Colombo/Dec16/2020)
