47-year-old man from Mumbai tested Covid-19 Positive

A 47-year-old man from Mumbai tested Positive for Covid-19 in candolim late Tuesday night, prompting a private hospital in the village that he had visited to shut down and send its staff into isolation.

Medical officer at the Candolim primary health centre Dr Roshan Nazareth, said the man had arrived from Mumbai on June 23 with a Covid-negative certificate and was in home quarantine at a friend’s apartment in Candolim. He had come to Goa to care for an elderly person who was having health problems.

The man visited a private hospital in the village along with the senior citizen for a check-up on June 27. As he complained of a mild fever, he was tested and found to have malaria. His condition, however, worsened over the next few days, prompting him to get tested for Covid-19 at his apartment by Nazareth on July 4. The report, which was received late Tuesday night, indicated that he was positive for the virus.
