Ports Minister Michael Lobo said on Wednesday said that tourism activity will be allowed in Goa after only when there are no novel coronavirus cases in India, even as Tourism Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar said the coastal state would seek a central package for its tourism sector. “Tourism industry will re-open in India, including Goa, if the corona cases come down in three months. But if they don’t go down to zero in other states, like it has been in Goa, then nothing will restart,” Michael Lobo said at the briefing earlier. “Domestic airlines cannot be started again yet. You will only end up taking the virus from one state to another,” Lobo said. Speaking to reporters after a meeting of the state Cabinet along with Lobo, Tourism Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar said that the Goa’s tourism had suffered a massive setback on account of the pandemic.
