After a month of being COVID-19 free, Goa reported seven fresh cases on Wednesday, reported Indian Express.
Well, Goa had declared itself COVID-19 free on May 1 as the state did not report any new cases since April 3. However, on Wednesday, Goa reported seven new cases.
State Health Minister Vishwajit Rane said that all tested positive and are in stable condition. They are undergoing treatment, he said.
According to the sources, five out of the seven belong to one family including husband and wife, their son and two daughters and a grand daughter. Apparently they were returning from Sholapur and were tested at a north Goa facility as per the state's testing protocol.
The other two were drivers- one who was returning from Gujarat after picking drums for industry purposes and other was returning from Mumbai.
All of them were tested and sent to Goa medical college for the second RT-PCR test to confirm the results.
However, this has not been updated by the Health Ministry so far and confirmation from the Union Health Ministry is still awaited.
