Panaji: Goa government on Sunday said that the state will bounce back as the tourist destination considering the stringent COVID-19 testing measures put up by the state.

Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Rane said that it is a time that tourism and other economic activities should restart in the State.

“Goa has an excellent recovery rate as far as COVID-19 patients are concerned. Suddenly, there was a spike in number of cases which is reduced now,” he said.

Goa has 28 active cases till date while 42 people have recovered out of the total 70 COVID-19 positive patients detected in the state.

Rane said that state has been wary about the people coming from Maharashtra, as majority of the patient detected positive for infection, had arrived from that state.

“My worry is that 80 per cent of the people coming positive are from Maharashtra. But same time, we need livelihdood. We need economic activity and Goa is known as tourist destination,” he said.

Rane said that Goa needs economc activities to be started.

“We are confident that as we have enhanced the testing measures under the guidance of chief minister,  I am confident Goa will bounce back as a tourist destination,” he commented.

“All depends on stringent measures and SOPs that we implement. We need to now move on and live with COVID-19,” he said.
