It has claimed almost a dozen lives so far.

He had returned from the UK in the first week of March. The Kollam administration put his driver, personal security guard and secretary in isolation after his disappearance came to light. His disappearance has also embarrassed the government which is hard pressed to enforce quarantine norms.
