Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Rane initially announced that Goa had registered its first case of coronavirus, but the scare lasted shortly as he later withdrew his statement claiming that a doctor at the Goa Medical College and Hospital received a ‘hoax’ call. The minister said people should not make such hoax call at such a time. The infected man, he said, was a Norwegian national who had been in Goa since February 20.
