Batticaloa University to be used as quarantine centre

Sri Lanka Health Ministry has decided to use the Batticaloa University  as a quarantine centre for coronavirus.

Health Director General Dr. Anil Jasinghe  has written to the Chairman of the University noting that the government has temporarily acquired the university premises until further notice for quarantining purposes.

The ‘Sharia University’ came under media attention following the Easter Sunday bombings carried out by Islamist terrorist group National Thowheeth Jama’ath.
