Passengers arriving at the Mumbai airport from South Africa will be quarantined, the city's Mayor announced on Saturday. Genome sequencing of those who test positive for the coronavirus will also be done. It is a process that helps identify which variant of COVID-19 caused the infection. The fresh curbs come amid concerns over a new strain, Omicron, which is most prevalent in South Africa.
