GOA: Three more people residing at Orda, Candolim, have tested positive for Covid-19, while six new cases have come to light at Betim. Medical officer at the Candolim primary health centre (PHC) Dr Roshan Nazareth, said the three people from Orda had got themselves tested on July 27 at a government hospital in Mapusa, and their results returned positive on Sunday night. The patients include a mother-daughter duo and a man from the same locality. They have now been quarantined at the Covid care centre in Calangute.
A part of Orda ward continues to be a restricted area after some positive cases were detected around 10 days ago. The new cases, however, are from a different part of the same ward. Nazareth said they’re still trying to determine the source of the new infections.
Meanwhile, the six fresh cases in Betim are all contacts of a Covid-19 positive patient residing in a housing complex in the village.
