In a statement made by the Ministry of Health of Sri Lanka, it was stated that Minister Wanniarachchi was treated at the hospital.
In Sri Lanka, it was reported that the Minister of Health Pavithra Wanniarachchi, who used the “sacred potion”, which the Hindu wizard claimed to have developed against the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19), was effective and recommended it to the public, was reported to have caught Kovid-19.
In the statement made by the Ministry of Health, it was stated that Minister Wanniarachchi’s Kovid-19 test was positive and he was treated at the hospital.
Last month in the city of Kegalle, near Colombo, the capital city of the country, a Hindu wizard claimed that he had developed an elixir that “provides lifelong protection against Kovid-19”.
It was stated that the sorcerer claimed that the Hindu goddess Kaali appeared to him in a dream one night and suggested “a potion with a mixture of honey and coconut to save humanity from Kovid-19”.
After Minister Wanniarachchi announced that he had tried the potion in question and benefited the virus, thousands of people flocked to Kegalle to get the mixture.
Opposition parties, on the other hand, stated that there was no scientific data that the mixture protected from Kovid-19, and accused the Minister of Health of misleading the public.
Minister of Health also criticized for mandatory cremation
Minister Wanniarachchi is also criticized for continuing the practice of compulsively burning the bodies of those who died from Kovid-19 in the crematorium, regardless of religion.
Sri Lankan Muslims, who oppose the practice of compulsory cremation and say that this practice is discriminatory against Muslims, demand that the bodies of Muslims who died from Kovid-19 be buried.
The Medical Association Delegation of 11 people, appointed by the Ministry of Health and consisting of 3 microbiologists, 6 virologists, one immune system specialist and one vaccine specialist, in the report published on January 2, said, “The expert delegation reviewed the recommendations for the removal of the corpses of those who died from the epidemic and decided that besides cremation, burial can also be applied. ” had found the explanation.
Despite the delegation’s report, Health Minister Wanniarachchi announced at the parliamentary session on January 7 that they would continue the practice of cremation “on the grounds of health safety”.
