Rising Corona Cases in VernaInd

Concerns were raised among medical circles on Wednesday after it was found that several of the Cases detected positive from South Goa during the last few days had links with the verna industrial estate – the patients are either employed at the industrial units or suspected to have had some association with the industrial area.   

Contact tracing and testing of the index patients in Rassaim, however, have so far not led to detection of any positive cases in the village, sources in the Loutolim primary health centre said. Of the 123 samples drawn from the area, reports of 73 returned negative, and those of the rest are awaited.

The collection of throat swab samples is already underway in the Verna industrial estate at a swab samples collection kiosk set by the health department in the industrial area.
