During a time when countries are dealing with the most recent Omicron variant, an official in Maharashtra’s Thane district claimed on Monday that over 100 recent foreign returnees are untraceable due to the Omicron scare.
According to Vijay Suryavanshi, the chief of the Kalyan Dombivali Municipal Corporation (KDMC), 109 of the 295 recent foreign returnees to the Thane district township are currently untraceable.

All returnees to KDMC limits from all “high risk” nations must go through a seven-day home quarantine before taking the Covid-19 test on the eighth day.
