Colombo (News 1st); Sri Lanka Police together with the security apparatus are tracing 119 people in the Gampaha district, whose PCR test results returned as positive for COVID-19 said Gampaha District Secretary Sunil Jayalath.

There are issues with regard to the addresses these patients had provided, he said.
