Goa’s tally of active cases dropped slightly to 4,802

GOA: Goa’s tally of active cases dropped slightly to 4,802 with recoveries exceeding new cases. As many as 423 people were cured and 391 new cases reported. Mortality count rose to 461with four deaths. Three deaths were reported from the Goa Medical College (GMC) and one from the ESI-Covid hospital in Margao.

Covid deaths include that of a 40-year-old man from Ganjem-Usgao who had diabetes mellitus and a kidney stone. He developed Covid pneumonia at the time of admission on Saturday. Other deaths include that of two men a 75-year-old from Panaji and a 76-year-old from Benaulim, Salcete and a 68-year-old woman from Cumbharjua. All three had comorbid conditions. The woman had respiratory failure when she was admitted to the hospital.

Goa has been reporting 400 to 500 cases a day, but with a slight drop in the range of 10 to 15 cases a day, since Thursday, but state epidemiologist Dr Utkarsh Betodkar said he would not term it as a “drop”. The only inference that can be drawn he said is that “the cases have plateaued”. “Now, every week we do not see the daily caseload crossing the 700-mark, neither do we see the infection steadily declining. So let’s wait for another ten days. Then I will be able to comment,” Betodkar said.
