Amid concerns over a new, reportedly more infectious Covid-19 variant that has surfaced in the UK and has even made its way to some other countries, the Bengaluru civic administration has traced 188 UK returnees successfully, of whom three have tested Covid-positive.

One of the infected returnees has been identified as a 35-year-old man who is a resident of Bashyam Nagar, Srirampuram in Rajajinagar. Four members of his family have been placed in home quarantine.

As per sources, his samples have been sent to NIMHANS for further investigation. “The infected man had returned on December 21. He has been admitted to KC General Hospital for further treatment and is being closely monitored. He boarded the flight from London,” a source said on condition of anonymity.

The other two infected UK returnees are a 34-year-old woman and her six-year-old child, who are residents of Uttarahalli in Bommanahalli zone. They have been admitted to Victoria Hospital.
