Sri Lanka confirmed cases of Covid-19 growing but slow phase but inline with India
Total confirmed cases of Covid-19 reached 87 in Sri Lanka as at end of 22nd which is still par with India which showed significant growth hereafter. Total patients in hospitals stagnated at 227 in Sri Lanka for the last few days. US confirmed cases have overtaken Spain which was the second-highest after Italy. But the number confirmed case per 1 mn population in Spain is high (615) compared with US (105). The spread in East Asia which was the first to hit by Covid-19 shows a rapid increase. That indicates some second wave that needs to be analyzed very carefully.
