Meantime the secretary of the navy chief of command for the western province is also affected by Corona. However the chief of command is also subjected for quarantine.
There is a greater risk that the Rangala navy camp and the navy headquarters would become a Corona cluster, says reports from the Navy.
Around 4000 sailors from the Welisara Navy base, which has become the largest corona cluster in South Asia has been sent to many quarantine centers, keeping few of those for the security of the camp
Soldiers in the navy say stupid actions of the Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Piyal Silva, have caused the entire Navy and the Welisara camp to become miserable. The misfortune has occurred due to Piyal Silva’s negligence to oblige to the advice of the navy administration.
For example, the the administration of the Navy has objected for the appointment of Captain Kathriarachchi as the commander for Colombo and the appointment of Captain Sugathadasa as the commander of four camps including Welisara. Kathriarachchi is an alcoholic from morning till evening. Due to Sugathadasa's bad deeds, he was once been relegated from the assigned team.
However Vice admiral Piyal Silva is supposed to retire on the 13th of June but he is anticipating a six months extension. If an extension is given, Nishantha Ulugetenna has to retire in September without becoming the navy commander. Following that rear admiral Kapila Samaraweera would become the Navy commander who is a henchman of former navy commander Wasantha Karannagoda. Karannagoda is battling to make Kapila Samaraweera the navy commander because the latter is scheduled to retire in 2021.
