CM Pramod Met MLAs to discuss strategies of Covid-19

CM Pramod Sawanth met MLAs  from Tiswadi taluka on Wednesday to discuss strategies to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the taluka. At the interaction, which was attended by Taleigao MLA Jennifer Monserrate, Santa Cruz MLA Antonio Fernandes and St Andre MLA Francis Silveira, it was decided to form WhatsApp groups for each constituency.

“The key point discussed was how we could help state officials contain Covid cases,” said Monserrate. “The second point was that a list all Covid patients, even asymptomatic ones, and their locations, would be with the respective MLAs.” Panaji MLA Atanasio Monserrate and Cumbharjua MLA Pandurang Madkaikar didn’t attend the meeting.

Monserrate said that the government has identified potential Covid care centres, but that the facilities will be activated only when the need arises. “We are also planning on doing more testing,” she said. “Once we do that, we will know if there are any more cases. We have to do mass testing, especially in areas where people have been tested positive.”
