GOA: Chief minister Pramod Sawant on Wednesday tested positive for Covid-19 and said via a tweet that since he was asymptomatic, he would opt for home isolation and asked all those “who have come in my close contact” to take necessary precautions. “I shall continue to discharge my duties working from home,” Sawant said even as he cancelled the cabinet meeting scheduled for Wednesday.
Sawant will isolate himself at the CM’s official residence at Altinho in Panaji, as his father, a senior citizen, resides with him at his home in Sankhali, CM’s wife Sulakshana Sawant told. “It would have been risky for him to stay at home,” she said.
The chief minister’s office said after Sawant tested positive, all those officials in the CMO, who had come in close contact with him, have opted for home isolation and would be working from home.
