Doctor Attended Anuruddha Padeniya's Party Tests Positive For COVID19: Padeniya Refuses To Go Under Quarantine

A doctor who attended a party hosted by GMOA President Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya at the latter's personal residence in Kelaniya has tested positive for COVID19. The party was held on the 8th and the doctor who has contracted COVID19 is a resident of Uggalgoda, Minuwangoda. Minuwangoda Regional Medical Officer of Health Dr. Anuja Fernando has instructed to quarantine all those who participated in the party with the infected doctor. Meanwhile, three Public Health Inspectors (PHIs) in charge of the area had come to the house of Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya at around 7.45 last night (13th) and tried to quarantine him, but it had failed. The reason was that the doctor did not open the gate and turned off the electricity in the house. The Public Health Inspectors had apparently informed this situation to the Kelaniya Regional Medical Officer of Health. She has instructed the PHIs carry out the quarantine activities the following morning. (14th).
