Government taken 200 rooms for isolation

GOA: With the state government having taken over 200 rooms in a number of hotels to serve as isolation facilities for health workers since the last four months, the Margao Residency at Margao, which was designated as a Covid care centre exclusively for health workers and government employees has been lying underutilized.

Consequently, South Goa district collector Ajit Roy has now issued directions for closure of the isolation facility at Margao Residency once the patients currently admitted there are discharged upon completion of their isolation period.

District administration officials said that no health worker was quarantined at the Margao Residency ever since it was set up as a Covid care centre. The state tourism department-run hotel has now stopped accepting new admissions. With several Covid care centres functioning below capacity, the move to close down Margao Residency was aimed at utilising resources efficiently, Roy told. Margao Residency presently has 32 patients admitted.
