Panaji:  With only two COVID-19 positive patients remaining admitted in the state run hospital, Health Minister Vishwajit Rane said that the state will be introducing state-of-art sample collection kiosks as per Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) guidelines.

Rane said “as number of COVID-19 cases in the state has come down from seven to two, our aim is to make Goa free of COVID-19.

“We shall be introducing state-of-art sample collection kiosks as per the ICMR guidelines after discussing it with the Government of India,” he said.

“A robust detection method which is in sync with the vision of our PM Narendra Modi following all the guidelines of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will be introduced,” he said.

Meanwhile,  Rane on Sunday order his department to open  six rural medical dispensaries to help the people during lockdown period.

“During this lockdown where most people living in far-flung areas are facing trouble visiting health centres, I have given instructions to open six rural medical dispensaries at Quepem, Netravali (Sanguem), Agonda (Canacona) and Thane (Sattari), Pali (Sankhalim) and Keri (Sattari),” he said.
