CM Pramod declared lockdown from Thursday to Monday

Chief minister Pramod sawanth on Wednesday declared a three-day complete lockdown from Thursday night to Monday morning after a huge spike in Covid-19 positive cases and deaths over the past few days. He said the government would also enforce a strict curfue at night, from 8pm to 6am, with immediate effect till August 10.

Sawant said the decision was taken after discussions with the directorate of health services, and that it was a necessary call to flatten the curve. He said a consensus emerged that the state may see a further spike in cases during the monsoon.

In the past one week, Goa has seen over 900 positive cases, while there have been nine deaths in four days. “We may already have reached the peak,” Sawant said after the state reported 170 positive cases on Tuesday. But on Wednesday, the state saw a new single-day high of 198 new cases, taking the total caseload to near 3,000.
