On the issue of false claims related to the finances granted by the Centre, the CM of Goa stated, "Such fake news, which is circulated by people with perverted minds only creates confusion. We have got only 6-Cr from the Centre as of now. We are asking for more because of the number of cases which are coming to the fore in the state."

The CM further added that COVID-19 cases have been showing up in Goa because of the high testing practises in the state. "We are conducting the highest amount of testing in the country at 90,000 persons per million. Delhi is second with 65,000 per million."
