Earlier this week Manohar Ajgaonkar, the tourism minister of Goa suggested that tourism activities should resume only after the entire population of the coastal state is completely vaccinated against COVID-19.
The Goa government has allowed hotels to function, restaurants and other tourism-related activities have been shut due to the curfew, which has been in place in the state since May 9, when COVID-19 cases started peaking.
Goa recorded 472 new coronavirus cases on Saturday, taking the caseload to 1,62,048. With 15 patients succumbing during the day, the death toll in the state reached 2,914.
