Panaji: Goa government on Friday announced 15-day-long curfew in the State from coming Sunday onwards to break the chain of COVID-19 infection.

Chief Minister Pramod Sawant told reporters that the shops selling groceries will be allowed to be open from 9 a.m till 1 pm during the curfew while there will be no ban on the pharmacies and other medical facilities.

Sawant said that the curfew would be imposed from May 09 till May 24, a period of 15 days to break the chain of COVID-19 infection.

He said that the State government had to take the decision after people were found disobeying the COVID-19 curbs which are currently imposed in the state.

The chief minister also said that the state has made COVID-19 negative certificate or vaccination certificate mandatory for the tourists entering the state.

Sawant also announced that all the events including weddings planned till May 24 should be cancelled as such events are contributing for the spread of the virus.

The chief minister said that the decision for stricter curfew has been taken after people continued moving out of their homes despite covid curbs.

“Hardly 25 per cent have to actually move out of the House. We have seen people unnecessarily loitering,” he commented.
