Goa reported 77 new COVID-19 cases…!

Goa: The Goa government plans to expand the scope of COVID-19 testing in the state by designating special teams at the primary health centres and community health centres to collect samples of suspected coronavirus patients, state Health Minister Vishwajit Rane has said.

“After deliberations with Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, we have taken a decision to recruit new teams on a contractual basis to designate them at the primary health centres (PHCs) and community health centres (CHCs), and they will report to the respective health officers,” Mr Rane said.

“Our aim is to move forward in a very progressive manner with teams attached to every PHC and CHC, along with an increased scope of testing, as suggested by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR),” Mr Rane said.

The state government will also streamline the supply of food at COVID care centres and it would be monitored by the health secretary from time to time, he added.
