Sri Lanka’s medical infrastructure, which has been in financial trouble, has also collapsed. Leave aside serious diseases like kidney and cancer in hospitals, even common medicines have started to run out. The situation has worsened to such an extent that hospitals and doctors have refused treatment, advising people not to get sick and injured, or else it will be difficult to save them.

Some doctors are appealing on social media for donations for supplies or to raise funds for the purchase of essential items. He has also called for help from Sri Lankans living abroad.

But now the hospital has raised its hand that it does not know when the sick will be able to get the necessary medicines again. The family had sold the house and received Vasana’s treatment, but now her life has become a problem again. Similarly, the stock of essential medicines that are taken continuously for cancer patients is also running out.
