Panaji: Goa’s COVID-19 active cases have touched a century mark with 31 new positive cases traced since last night in the State. The biggest contributor for the spike is Mangor Hill area from where 60 per cent of the cases are reported.

State government is now under immense pressure to increase its testing facilities as the number of samples drawn from different areas has been on rise.

After witnessing 47 cases on Wednesday, Thursday saw the number rising higher. From Mangor Hill itself, 23 people were tested positive while 8 others were from different areas who had arrived from Mumbai.

Total 7 people who had arrived from Mumbai were tested positive. Out of seven, four were non-Goans.

Another lady who had arrived from Mumbai at Calangute was admitted to a private hospital at Mapusa when she complained of a breathlessness. She was later shifted to GMC where she was diagnosed to be COVID-19 positive.

The number of cases are on rise in the state while Chief Minister Pramod Sawant has been reluctant to cap the number of people entering the State.

Health Minister Vishwajit Rane had demanded that the number of people entering the state should be capped.
