Medical officials say that there is currently a shortage of aspirin in Sri Lanka.
The General Secretary of the All Ceylon Medical Officers’ Association, Dr. Jayantha Bandara, said that Aspirin has not been available in the country since 4 months.
He further said that due to the lack of aspirin required for the treatment of heart patients, diabetics and paraplegics, those patients are in great difficulty and their lives are at risk and if the shortage of medicines in the country continues, the rising death toll will increase.
The rulers are running after a national flower while the people of the country are dying without medicine. It is ironic that the only burning problem for the prime minister of the country where the people are suffering without medicine is to find a flower.
