Panaji: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Monday expressed worry over the death rate due to COVID-19 infection in the State as few patients succumbed to the infection at their home, without getting tested.

“It is sad that people are ignoring the signs and symptoms of the infection. Get yourself tested, if there are signs. It is sad that the people are brought in dead in the hospitals,” Sawant said in a video message released here.

The Chief Minister was responding to highest deaths, total 14, on a single day recorded in the State on Monday. State Health Department said that out of the 14 deaths, three were brought dead to the South Goa District Hospital and three patients expired at Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) near here within 24 hours of their admission.

Of the total deaths on Monday, nine were at GMC, two at ESI hospital in Margao town of South Goa and three were at South Goa District Hospital.

The Chief Minister said that there needs to be more awareness about the virus, and people should not stay back home after noticing the symptoms. He said that there are enough vacant beds in the state-run facilities, where they can get admitted for the treatment of the virus.

“We have set up testing facilities at every Primary Health Centre (PHC). People can get tested there and if found positive, should immediately get admitted,” he added.
