Strictest lockdown Measures In Goa Ensure No New Cases In 2 Weeks Might Be COVID-19 Free Soon!, Goa was one of the first states in India to start screening passengers at its airport.

As of April 3, Goa reported a total of 7 COVID-19 positive cases of which six have already recovered! The state has just one active case with no new cases for the past two weeks. If this continues Goa will soon be India’s first coronavirus-free zone.

“Borders are sealed for the entry of all types of passenger vehicles coming through Maharashtra and Karnataka from midnight today.
