Total 114 Covid-related deaths reported during first 14 days

GOA: A total of 114 Covid-related deaths reported during the first 14 days of September have made it the deadliest two weeks till date, with an average of eight deaths each day. In comparison, the first two weeks of August witnessed a total of 51 deaths, an average of more than three each day, while July saw 14 deaths (for the same period), an average of one each day.

Health services reported a total of 25 deaths over the past 48 hours alone. Chief minister Pramod Sawant appealed to those experiencing symptoms to get themselves tested at the earliest and to asymptomatic positives who turn symptomatic to seek treatment. He said that lives cannot be saved if people report late to the hospital.

“When patients are brought dead we cannot do anything for them. I appeal to people with any symptoms to immediately get admitted in the hospital. We are ready to treat them but if they don’t go to the hospital we cannot treat them. No sooner you have symptoms immediately go and get tested,” he said.
