Vasco : The people of Mormugao taluka have been exasperated by the rising COVID positivity rate: the COVID count in the taluka stands at 569.
The taluka has recorded the highest COVID tally as compared to any other taluka of the state.
The rising positivity graph has heightened COVID psychosis among the people of the taluka, which has two COVID hotspots: Mangor Hill and Zuarinagar, which are now containment zones. There are several areas of the taluka which have seen a rise in positive cases. They include Baina, Headland-Sada, New Vaddem, Khariwada, Chicalim and Cortalim.
Serious concerns have been raised over the surge in COVID positive cases: it appears that the virus has defeated the containment zones as despite the strict curbs in the zones, cases have continued to emerge.
