GOA: Though the three-day statewide lockdown ends on Monday,the curchorem town will remain shut for another five days, up to Friday.
The decision to lock down was taken after a person who had tested positive for Covid-19 had been freely moving around the town before his test results were out. With apprehensions that he may have come in contact with many other persons before the test, the Curchorem market association decided to shut the market till July 24.
Pereira also requested government to extend the lockdown for a few more days, as a precautionary measure. Ravi Laad and Agnelo Pires, secretaries of the other market associations, said that “since cases are increasing day by day, lockdown is the only solution to prevent the virus from spreading”.said
