GOA: Leader of opposition and Margao MLA Digambar Kamat reiterated his demand for making the South Goa district hospital fully operational “by utilising every space available in the complex”. “With no Covid handling action plan in sight, (and) health minister Vishwajit Rane openly admitting that all Covid hospitals are full and Covid patients forced to go for home quarantine, it is now clear that the BJP government in Goa wants to convert every house into containment zone and leave people to the mercy of god,” Kamat said in a press note.
Accusing the government of having failed to do any preparations to tackle the pandemic during the 40-day lockdown period, Kamat said, “The people are pushed into the trap of Covid by the faulty measures and policies of the government. It is now more than clear that the government has no action plan and mechanism for people’s safety. With people being blamed for celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi festival and spreading coronavirus, it is clear that the government is clueless on handling and management of Covid pandemic.”
