From Ponda Police Station 15 Persons Tested Corona Positive

Goa: The Ponda police station has been badly affected as 15 personnel have tested positive for Covid-19. On Thursday, 12 more police personnel were detected with the virus.
Among the 15 police personnel who tested positive are two officers, four head constable and nine constables. A home guard and an EMRI health provider posted at the police station have also tested positive. Of the 146 swab samples collected on Wednesday 130 policemen have tested negative.

However, although short-staffed, the Ponda police have decided to manage with the existing staff strength. Although 15 members of the 160 workforce are being treated for the coronavirus infection, Ponda deputy superintenden of police (DySP) Nelson Albuquerque said they would manage with the existing strength, but no outside staff will be brought in despite the Ponda police station having to man seven outposts.
