The state on Monday reported 247 fresh coronavirus infections and two fatalities
Goa health minister Vishwajit Rane on Tuesday said that the possibility of imposing certain stricter restrictions to curb the spread of coronavirus will soon be discussed with Chief Minister Pramod Sawant.
The CM had stated on Monday that his government was monitoring the Covid-19 situation in Goa and the neighboring Maharashtra and Karnataka.
The Goa State Executive Committee (SEC) on Friday decided to strictly implement the existing Covid-19 preventive protocols across the state in wake of high-density urban areas reporting a spike in virus infections.
The committee directed the health department, police and department of information and publicity to carry out aggressive awareness campaigns in the state.
It also stressed the need for collectors and police officers to enforce the Covid-appropriate behaviour, including levying fines for violations.
