PORVORIM: IND MLA Rohan Khaunte today has written to Goa Governor B.S Kohsyari highlighting the worsening COVID-19 situation in the state while also demanding for 10 days lockdown to curb the spread.
“Goa is the smallest State in the Country and yet it is displaying the Highest Test Positivity Rate and equally High Death Rate during this pandemic.” said Khaunte
He further said that this catastrophic situation is directly attributed to the Highly Insensitive and Lackadaisical approach towards Pandemic Control of the Goa Government lead by Dr. Pramod Sawant.
“It is my humble understanding that a Pandemic Lock down demands Stringent Border Controls for Effective Containment of the viral spread, which is the sole purpose of a Medical Lock down.” he added
Khaunte said that Goa could have achieved at least total first round Vaccination by March end, if the Goa Government had prioritized the same.
