Panaji: In a good news for Goans, renowned state based oncologist Dr Shekhar Salkar informed that the number of Covid 19 cases in the state has been decreasing that is because of early detection and visit to the hospital by patients.
Talking about the statistics in the past one week Dr Salkar informed, “In the last one week, the mortality rate of Covid cases in Goa has seen a decrease. There were 41 deaths in total in the last 7 days of which only 2 very elderly were dead on arrival & 1 died within 24 hours of admission,  it’s all due to  visiting hospital on time.”
