The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has taken the entire world by surprise. COVID - 19 has been touted as ‘the great equalizer,’ as the virus transcends wealth, fame, age, gender and nationality. Everyone is currently engrossed with the real-time pandemic situation.
The book features a range of prevention and control measures to be adopted at different places such as homes, outdoors, workplaces, etc., and also contains scenario - based strategies, frequently asked questions, and addresses myths and misconceptions prevalent among the public. Consequently, it will serve to educate students, teachers, and management of institutions where groups of people are concentrated such as rehabilitation centres and the general society.
 ‘Prevention and Control of COVID - 19’ is edited by Professor Wenhong Zhang, who is a leading Chinese expert in infectious diseases and was Head of the Shanghai COVID - 19 Treatment Expert Group. He is also the Director of the Department of Infectious Diseases, Huashan Hospital of Fudan University.
The book is a valuable tool to all readers, and provides simple, practical, scientific and targeted information on prevention and control measures. It clearly states ‘Breaking the chain of infection is the only way to control the spread of infectious diseases. However, implementation of control principles requires each of us to properly protect ourselves and actively cooperate with anti-epidemic work, in addition to relying on national prevention and control measures, so that this battle may come to an end faster.’
The China - Sri Lanka Cooperation Studies Centre of the Pathfinder Foundation carried out the translation with the support of the International Department Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, Shanghai Scientific & Technical Publishers and the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Sri Lanka. The translation of the publication to Sinhala was undertaken by Mr. Lakshmana Saparamadu.

India-Sri Lanka Cooperation in Joint Sea Exploration


India and Sri Lanka are strategically located at a crossroads within the Indian Ocean; a body of water 68.5 million sq. km in extent and the third largest of the world’s oceans, after the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Their unique location provides ample opportunities for the two South Asian neighbours to embark upon a cooperative approach in joint sea exploration. India has a vast costal line of more than 7517 km, with Sri Lanka adding its coastline of 1340 km. The prospect becomes still more impressive, if the Maldives is included in the concept of joint exploration of their combined wealth of sea resources. However, it is not quite clear if Maldives is yet ready to fully join a broad based cooperative venture in a tri-lateral format for a variety of reasons, although as elaborated in the later part of this paper, it has been part of the ongoing negotiations and discussions on certain aspects of the agenda.
