GOA: The Sancoale village panchayat ghar was closed afternoon after one of its members tested positive. It has been decided to keep the panchayat office shut until Monday. According to sources, the panchayat member got himself tested at the Sancoale health centre as he had a throat infection. The antigen test came positive although he did not have a cold or fever. On getting his report, the panchayat member immediately informed the other panchas to get them tested.
Sources at the panchayat said that the Covid positive panch, who has opted for home isolation, had briefed the media on Tuesday and had also attended a birthday party of another panchayat member at Sancoale.
