Recently released data by the Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) revealed that a total of 318 travellers entered areas in Kalyan and Dombivli from different countries, out of which 306 were found to be stable. However, 12 citizens have not been found and hence the officials from the civic body have implemented the plan to search them for further testing. 

It is being said that the travellers were not found at the address mentioned and that their mobile devices are also switched off. This has raised concerns for the municipal corporation amidst the growing COVID-19 cases and Omicron scare. A report regarding the same was published in the Free Press Journal.

Quoting an official from the KDMC, the publication reported that the department is yet to trace the 12 passengers. Confusing addresses have been given by them and the team has been trying to reach out to them. The doors have been locked, phones switched off and they aren’t available as expected. Due to these issues, the list will now be shared with concerned officials from the health department who will repeat the process again. Flyers and notes will be sent to them to get an update on their health.

They try to escape the same, however, officials will have to perform their duties of checking the health status basis which precautionary measures will be taken. Noting such incidences, senior officials from the civic body have requested the citizens to not panic and support the KDMC in containing the spread of the virus. Cooperation has been sought and appeal has been made to follow COVID-19 rules of wearing mask, using sanitisers and maintaining social distance.
