All hospitals have been alerted to be vigilant for any severe respiratory infections as well as any change in patterns in the light of the novel corona virus detected in West Asia.

The World Health Organization had not seen the need yet to screen those coming into the country from abroad according to Dr. Palihawadana.

So far, according to the WHO, a global total of 15 confirmed cases of the Corona virus have been reported.
