The Story of Goa’s First COVID-19 Survivor: Edgar Julian Remedios

Episode 1,  Apr 11, 2020, 08:38 AM

This episode hosted by Mayabhushan Nagvenkar features Edgar Julian Remedios, a US-based mechanical engineer and a son of Goa's Saligao village. Till a few days ago, Edgar was one of the seven COVID-19 positive patients quarantined in isolation at the ESI hospital in Margao, the Indian coastal state's only designated hospital for COVID-19 positive patients. 

Hours after the podcast was recorded, Edgar tested negative for the second time and has been allowed to leave the isolation facility. 

The story of Goa's first COVID-19 patient to be successfully treated, is a significant and a moving account and the first in the list of Lockdown logs. 

A note for our listeners; this conversation was recorded over telephone, which explains the relatively poor audio quality.
