Colombo (News 1st); The Ceylon Teachers’ Union raised concerns over the health security at schools which would be used to house returning military personnel.

Joseph Stalin, General Secretary of the Ceylon Teachers’ Union said at a time when military personnel and health workers are exposed to the coronavirus, special attention should be drawn towards schools, especially the ones which would be used by the military.
