GMOA resigns from Ministry of Health technical committee
2 years ago
The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) has revealed today (04) that it had resigned from the technical committee of the Ministry of Health owing to concerns regarding the handling of the present pandemic situation. Dr. Haritha Aluthge, Editor GMOA, today stated that the reasons were owing to the failure of the government to consider the input of GMOA on the handling of COVID-19 pandemic. He expressed his concern on the reluctance of the government to publish a map marking all the areas where COVID-19 cases were reported so that citizens could clearly note which areas are highly infected. He further called on the authorities to increase the number of PCR tests to “satisfactory levels”. He stated that if these measures are not implemented, there would be no point in directly serving in the technical committee of the health ministry.
