COVID-19: Sawant rules out possibility of night curfew in Goa

Panaji, Apr 8 (PTI) Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant
on Thursday ruled out the possibility of a night curfew in the
state, saying that such a move would adversely affect the
tourism industry.

Talking to reporters after attending the review
meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi through virtual
mode, Sawant also said that lockdown was not a solution to
curb the spread of the virus.

“The state will not impose a night curfew as it will
adversely affect the tourism industry. Lockdown would create
economic disturbances forcing the state to undergo the same
situation which it had witnessed a year ago,” he said.

“People should not move out their homes without a
reason. Vaccination and precautions are the solution to curb
spread of the virus,” Sawant said.

He said that the state would be holding programmes to
reach out to the people even at the village level with the
vaccination drive.

“We want to cover maximum population above the age of
45 years under this programme. Our target is to vaccinate
hundred per cent of the eligible beneficiaries under the
vaccination programme,” the chief minister said.

He said the prime minister has appealed to the state
governments in the country to hold ”Tika Utsav” (vaccine
festival) from April 11 to 14 in their respective states.

Replying to a question, Sawant said the state health
department has increased the bed capacity to treat COVID-19
patients considering the rising number of cases. PTI RPS
