33 Sri Lankans quarantined at Diyatalawa to return home

The 33 Sri Lankans, who were quarantined at the Diyatalawa army camp’s Base Hospital upon evacuation from Wuhan, are scheduled to return to their homes this evening (14), says Sri Lanka Army.

They have departed the quarantine facility to meet Commander of Army Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva at the Army Headquarters in Akuregoda.

These Sri Lankans, who were stuck in Wuhan - the epicentre of COVID-19 - were evacuated in a special flight (UL 1423) chartered by SriLankan Airlines on the 1st of February.

As the charter flight landed at Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA), they were received by the members of the Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Response Squadron of the Army, who are qualified to deal with such biological or chemical emergencies.

The Army, on the instructions of the Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva, completed the speedy erection of two 100 x 20 sanatorium-type new buildings at the Base Hospital of Diyatalawa camp within a matter of three days (29 - 31 January).

The returned students were quarantined by keeping them in incubation for 14 days under the close supervision of medical consultants, epidemiologists and other staffers.

During the quarantine period, they were provided with all day-to-day requirements by the Army such as food, refreshments, sanitary requirements and all other amenities.
