Margao: After a rigorous lockdown that was imposed in Chinchinim for nearly ten days, a senior citizen from Koreawaddo in the village tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday.
The panchayat had opted for an extended lockdown after four COVID cases were earlier reported in the village apart from a spike in the number of such cases in the surrounding areas. The lockdown was lifted on July 6 following recommendations from the village development committee.
Official sources said a senior citizen in the village has tested positive and health officials are in the process of identifying others who have come in contact with her.
Meanwhile, Navelim has also reported another positive case after a break. Health officials said efforts are on to track the people, who could have possibly come in contact with the infected person.
