The deceased has been identified as Upul Nishantha Dissanayake, a resident of Welipenagahamulla, Nattandiya. Upul Nishantha, an alumnus of Joseph Vaas College, Wennappuwa, had gone to England about 20 years ago to practice medicine. He was 52 years old at the time of his death and a father of one. Her daughter Mevna Dissanayake is a final year student of the Medical Faculty of the Eastern University. Dr Upul Nishantha's wife Suji Dissanayake said that the Covid vaccine was to be given to him in the next few days.
