In the wake of the Omicron variant scare, the Kalyan Dombivali Municipal Corporation said on Tuesday that 100 foreign returnees have gone missing. Vijay Suryavanshi, the corporation's chief, said 295 people have returned to Thane's township, while 109 remained unidentified.

Some of the returnees' phones were turned off, and many of the residences given were found to be locked.

Suryavanshi reaffirmed that all returnees from 'at risk' nations will be subjected to a seven-day home quarantine, followed by a COVID-19 test on the eighth day. "Even if the test is negative, they will be subjected to another seven-day home quarantine, and it will be the responsibility of housing society members to guarantee that the rule is followed. Marriages, meetings, and other events are being monitored for possible infractions "he stated.

According to the KDMC head, approximately 72 percent of residents in the township have received their first dosage of the vaccine and 52 percent have been fully vaccinated.

Recently, an Omicron case was discovered in a Dombivali resident.

Separately, in Karnataka, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) reported that ten returnees had gone missing. It then hunted down the ten people who had gone missing after arriving in the United States from South Africa.

On Sunday, the country had 17 cases of Omicron – one in Delhi, seven in Maharashtra, and nine in Rajasthan.
