Panaji: Two Goa-based persons- a man who had travelled to Italy and Finland, and a woman who returned to the state from Dubai, were quarantined here on Wednesday for possible novel coronavirus exposure as they complained of cough and fever on their arrival.
The woman was in Dubai from November 30, 2019. She left that city on March 8 and arrived in Goa, the minister said.
"She landed in Goa in an Air India flight. After she complained of cough and fever on Tuesday, she was quarantined," he added.
According to Rane, the man had traveled to Italy and Finland last month and had come in contact with a coronavirus patient.
"He has been kept in an isolation ward of the GMCH in Panaji after he complained of cough and fever. The man, a native of Vasco town in South Goa, was working on a ship and returned to the coastal state two days back," he said.
