Goa CM rules out lockdown


The Goa government will prefer imposition of certain stringent restrictio­ns given the rise in Covid-19 cases, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said yesterday but ruled out clamping of a lockdown.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that imposition of a lockdown should be the last option. Lockdown will not control coronaviru­s. We have to impose some restrictio­ns to control the situation,” Sawant told reporters. Goa reported a total of 69,312 coronaviru­s positive cases until April 20 while the overall death toll stood at 926.
