Health authorities stated that any further implementation of the biosafety bubble concept will not be necessary. Deputy Director General of Health Services Dr. Hemantha Herath speaking to a briefing held in the Family Health Bureau today (19) noted that at present only active Covid-related tests and vaccination certificates are sufficient for foreign tourists.
The biosafety bubble can be implemented to those coming from outside, if required, Dr. Herath added.
Speaking to the briefing, Specialist Dr. Shanthi Gunawardena revealed that the Health Ministry has paid special attention on the post-Covid conditions. Accordingly, non-communicable diseases such as diabetes are being investigated through functional wellness centres in hospitals, she added.
