Police teams are proceeding with the search operation to locate the woman who escaped from Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) while receiving treatment for Covid-19, says the police media spokesperson DIG Ajith Rohana.

The 25-year-old had fled from the hospital at around 9.10 pm on Thursday (19) along with her two-year-old son who was also under medical care for coronavirus infection.

However, the police had later found the child from a house in Eheliyagoda. It was revealed that the escaped woman had handed him over to a relative residing in the area.

The police also published a photo of the escapee to seek public assistance in their search operation.

Meanwhile, reports have been received that the woman in question had arrived in Kiriella in a bus and is currently in hiding in the woods by the town. Accordingly, police teams have been deployed to the area to locate the escapee.
