The government should issue directives to companies not to victimise those who had been infected by the Covid-19 virus or those who reside at containment zones, said panchayats minister and Dabolim MLA Mauvin Godinho during a meeting he convened on Tuesday at Chicalim to seek feedback on the Mangor Hill containment zone.
“Three main grievances were reported – shortage of ambulances, demand for mass testing and the concern that if confinement inside the containment zone is extended then there are chances of people losing their livelihood,” said Godinho. He urged the government to ask employers not to differentiate with workers based on their place of residence or for having tested positive for the virus.
Almeida said that “within two days tests for anti-bodies will commence at Mangor Hill”. “This will definitely give some relief to the people and hopefully the restrictions on Mangor Hill will soon be lifted,” the Vasco MLA said
