Goa: After fishing ban lifts, CCP to sanitise Panaji fish market daily July 30,2020   |  Source: The Times of India

With the fishing ban ending on July 31, related activities are expected to soon resume in the state. The Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP) will start sanitising the Panaji fish market on a daily basis from August 1 as a precautionary measure against Covid-19. Until now, sanitising was done only twice a week.

TOI had earlier reported that there is already a drop in footfalls at the fish market after the building housing it was sealed following reports of Covid-19. There are now three more positive cases reported in the building on Tuesday, taking the total to 13. “The building has been sealed. Even the people that have been tested negative for Covid-19 have been quarantined inside,” Panaji mayor, Uday Madkaikar said. Those who tested positive have been admitted to Covid hospitals in North and South Goa, he said.

“There is nothing to worry at the fish market. We have made arrangements wherein vendors sit at a distance from one another. Also, only some vendors are inside the market while others are hawked outside. Now, we will regularly sanitise the fish market,” Madkaikar said.
