Essential services to remain active, under any circumstances
Goa, having a total population of approximately 15,40,000, has been witnessing surging COVID cases every day, with a 3% average growth rate. Holding this in regard, the governing body is now "positively thinking" about imposing a full lockdown; an official statement will be released in the coming days.
