People in Goa got shocked after the decision as its state authorities suddenly threw open casinos, spas and massage parlours that were closed since April. Chief minister Pramod Sawant’s debatable choice got here in the wake of his doubtful statement last week that “we’ve in fact vaccinated 102% of the population”, which become a centre of talk although followed by the
statement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who stated, “Goa is some of the few global tourist locations where people have received the safety of the vaccine. We all desire there ought to be the same tourism interest as before.”
All this fanfare moves state citizens as uncomfortably harking back to the debacle which performed out as India’s smallest state went unexpectedly downhill from being hailed the country’s first covid-free “green zone” to a full-blown pandemic emergency, with a number of the highest positivite case numbers recorded within the country.
