"This is a good app for self-assessment and I am confident that it will be of great use to the people of Goa. I have also sent a concept note regarding this to the Prime Minister. I am sure that this will be of great help to people. Even the chatbot launched by us was a great success," Rane told ANI on Saturday.

The Goa government has partnered with Innovaccer to launch the first-ever app for self-determination in the country.

Further stating the precautionary measures being taken by the state government Rane said, "We are taking all preventive measures. No gathering of more than five people will be allowed from tonight. I would urge the people to abstain from going out and dining in restaurants. We also do not want any tourists to come to the state till this situation persists."
