Goa’s count of active cases of Covid-19 rise by 100

Goa’s count of active cases of Covid-19 rise by 100 on Friday while 74 persons afflicted with the virus have recovered bringing the total to 895. Mohanan said within a week they should be able to start antibody testing whereas efforts are also under way to introduce antigen tests.

In view of cases reported from a pharma unit in Verna industrial estate, director of food and drugs administration Jyoti Sardessai had a meeting directing pharma companies to take precautions in their respective units. “She reiterated that all necessary precautions as laid down by the ministry of health and family welfare, and the ministry of homes affairs are to be followed,” Mohanan said.

She said the 50-year-old man from Vasco who died on Thursday had a fever for almost six days and yet he did not seek medical help. “We are shocked the person from the area which has been under the scanner did not approach health authorities,” she said, appealing to those with symptoms to approach the nearest health centre for help.
