Panjim: Goa Minister of Sports, Manohar Azgaonkar, is to seek clarification from the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) over the fate of the much-delayed 36th National Games in the wake of Coronavirus pandemic.
The rise in COVID-19 cases worldwide has brought all sporting activities to a sudden halt.
Goa witnessed seven COVID-19 cases, out of which six patients have reportedly recovered.
The coronavirus pandemic has raised doubts over the National Games, scheduled to be held in the state from October 20th to November 4th 2020.
Azgaonkar further stated that the ongoing works on the infrastructure creation are in the final phase and can be completed within a month.
Goa was earlier supposed to host the 36th edition of the National Games in November 2018
