Goa’s Health Minister To Issue New Sop’s For Safety

For the well-being of tourists and locals in Goa, the Chief minister Pramod Sawant said that he would ask health minister Vishwajit Rane to implement new standard operating procedures (SOP’s) in the state. The rules will be strict to ensure safety. “SOPs on preventive measures to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the state, imposing restrictions on movement, and other (measures) are being examined by the government,” Rane said.

Rane said that Goa is a tourist destination. So, the government has to deal with Covid-19 as well as make sure that the people in the state do not panic. “The flexibility of testing and other measures we’re providing are as per the video-conference held with the PM,” he said. “It was very clearly mentioned to take precautions but not to unnecessarily create panic.”

“Our neighboring states like Maharashtra have imposed strict Covid-testing protocols on arrival, to prohibit all possible suspects from entering the state,” Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte said. “The (Goa) government needs to take similar steps at this preliminary stage to prevent community transmission of the virus.”
