Goa’s tally of active cases increased to 1,666

GOA: Goa’s tally of active cases increased to 1,666 with 174 new infections reported on Thursday. As many as 114 patients were cured and discharged.

The government has issued standard operating procedures (SOP) for home quarantining very mild, pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic Covid patients. The cabinet on Wednesday had decided that asymptomatic Covid patients may be allowed to home quarantine.

A spike in new cases was reported from Cortalim, Sanguem, Ponda, Loutolim, Margao, Panaji, Chimbel, Candolim and Colvale.
 

The rise in cases reported in two areas — Loutolim 16 and Chimbel 15 cases — indicates people mustn’t lower their guard even if there is dip in cases for a week or more, a health official said.

“Precautions have to be taken because it takes time for Covid-19 symptoms to surface in some patients while some may not at all exhibit any signs of the virus,” he said.
Candolim also witnessed a rise with 11 new cases reported on Thursday.
