COLOMBO (News1st) : Health officials have requested the public to inform the hotline 1390 if anyone develops symptoms of COVID -19.

“Doctors will provide solutions (on the hotline). Then you can decide whether you should go to a hospital,” Dr. Paba Palihawadana, deputy director general of health services said.

She noted that the public should not hide symptoms such as fever, cough and common cold, and instead should seek medical advice immediately.

The ministry of health confirmed the sixth death due to COVID – 19 earlier Tuesday, adding that there are 134 active cases at present.
