Goa active corona cases climb up to 130: CM

Panaji, June 5 (IANS): Goa's active coronavirus cases have increased to 130 in the wake of detection of 96 positive cases in South Goa's Mangor hill area, already declared a containment zone, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said on Friday.

Continuing to rule out community transmission in the state, Sawant said that four persons who landed in Goa from Dubai on Tuesday on a Vande Bharat Mission flight had tested positive.

Sawant said that the key reason for the spike in corona infections in Goa was the quick spread of the virus in Mangor hill cluster, located in the jurisdiction of Vasco urban health centre. As many as 72 persons tested positive there on Wednesday and Thursday.

Asked whether the state was considering shutting down the port town of Vasco in South Goa, where Mangor hill area is located, Sawant said: "I have personally inspected the area. A containment zone has been declared at Mangor hill and the transmission has not spread to any other place. So, as of now, there is no need for it."
