Accordingly, its co-convener is Saman Ratnapriya stated that data in connection with COVID-19 and other diseases will not be released by health personnel amounting to over 60,000 people.

Its co-convener is Saman Ratnapriya urged authorities to implement the recommendations made in the ‘Ranukge Committee Report,’ rectify overtime anomalies, give graduates their deserving appointments, and to reduce the price of medicines.

The Budget has also not made any moves to solving this issue as well, he added.

However Ratnapriya stated that owing to these demands not being met, they were forced to launch the strike action, and urged the Health Minister to solve the issue without delaying action.
