GOA: Porvorim which has seen a high incidence of Covid-19 infections as compared to other health centres in North Goa over the past two months is finally seeing a decline in infections. It’s daily case average has fallen to 10-12 Cases from 25-30 cases last month.Porvorim which comprises three panchayat areas reported comparatively more cases than other centres. This is primarily because people from outside its jurisdiction test at the Porvorim primary health centre and give their village name as Porvorim.
“Today everybody—right from those from Pilerne, Saligao, Sangolda to Reis Magos—says they are from Porvorim, and cases get listed under Porvorim,” said Dr Roshan Nazareth, medical officers holding additional charge of Porvorim primary health centre. Secondly, infections were on the rise because initially people were reluctant to isolate themselves when a family member tested positive.
