The Indian Medical Association′s Goa State division has urged the public to act in a covid-appropriate manner in light of the rapid increase in covid cases in several nations. The association has encouraged people to wear face masks in all crowded public venues, keep their distance from one another, and regularly wash their hands with soap or sanitizer.


Additionally, it has encouraged people to obtain the Covid vaccination as soon as possible, including the preventive dosage, and to visit a doctor if they have any symptoms such as fever, sore throat, cough, loose stools, etc.


The association president Dr Rufino Monteiro said that though the situation is not alarming in India yet, still precautions need to be taken.
