COVID-19: Young people are the most infected- Health Minister

The Minister for Health has pointed that people between the age of 30-40 have been the most affected by the COVID-19.

The minister said this while taking questions from journalists on the state of affairs in the ongoing pandemic.

He added that the reason for the impact on the younger population is due to the now very evident community transmission of the virus. The virus which was introduced into the country by persons who had traveled to infected countries is now becoming more and more freely transmitted within communities.

the minister said the ministry is taking all necessary measures to ensure that all new cases get tested. HE added that the ministry is providing starter packs to all tertiary health institutions in the country to increase overall testing capacity of the country.

The country’s COVID-19 Cases increased beyond 1000 on Friday, as 114 new cases of the coronavirus were confirmed.
