Lucknow: Among the 300 travellers who landed in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut, 13 have furnished wrong addresses and phone numbers, said the district’s chief medical officer. Efforts are on to locate them.
According to Meerut’s chief medical officer, Akhilesh Mohan, officials are now being sent to their residences to identify them and get their tests done. If even these houses are not found, then information is being given to the local intelligence unit to help locate them, said the official.
“Thirteen out of 297 foreign returnees have given wrong mobile numbers and addresses to the administration. The details that they provided to us have been given to LIU (Local Intelligence Unit) to find out their whereabouts,” CMO of Meerut, Dr Akhilesh Mohan was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Dr Mohan said that out of the 297 fliers, seven had returned from South Africa. South Africa is the first country that reported the Omicron variant. However, the medical officer did not specify if any of the missing travellers are from ‘at risk’ countries.
