The government has decided to make arrangements to re-open a large number of hospitals that are currently shut due to a shortage of doctors.

Sirisena has said the hospitals would be provided with the necessary resources to serve the people.

According to the Minister some 80 such hospitals are in the North and Eastern Provinces while the rest are located in several districts.
