The state government will not enhance lockdown norms in Vasco as no cases of COVID-19 are reported outside periphery of Mangoor hill, said chief minister Dr. Pramod Sawant addressing a web press conference in Panjim on Friday.
Dr. Sawant, said that Lock down was not a solution to curb infection outbreak. He said that testing, detection of cases & home quarantine is a solution to combat the virus outspread. Dr. Sawant maintained that 100% people inside containment zone would be tested. He said that free food will be provided to needy people in the containment zone.
Sawant maintained that none of the infected patients in the state were serious. All people entering the state are tested for pandemic infection. Around 96 cases are active in the state.
COVID-19 cases in the state spiked earlier these week, after union government relaxed interstate mobilization and transportation norms. Mangoor hill in Vasco has been declared as containment zone after extensive detection of COVID cases.
