Panaji: Nine travelers who had arrived in Goa on a train from Delhi on Saturday have tested positive for COVID-19 infection on TrueNat tests, while confirmatory tests on them are still pending.
Health authorities had drawn 263 samples from the passengers that arrived from Rajdhani Train in Margao on Saturday.
During TrueNat test, nine have come positive for COVID-19 infection.
What is interesting is that chief minister Pramod Sawant had said that Rajdhani Express will not take halt at Madgaon Railway station this Saturday, but still it halted bringing in the passengers.
The cases are expected to rise even today (Sunday) with another train from Delhi planning to take a stop at Madgao.
