In a tweet, Rane said, “In view of the Delta Plus Variant cases found in the neighbouring states, we shall ensure that stringent monitoring is taking place at the borders. Hon’ble CM @DrPramodPSawant has already issued instructions on this matter.”

“We need to ensure that our borders are secure to prevent the variant from entering the state of Goa. Till date, no cases of Delta Plus Variant has been found. Hon’ble CM and myself have been constantly monitoring the situation on ground to fight this pandemic unitedly,” the Goa minister said in another tweet.
