WHO Labels Coronavirus Strain In India As Variant Of Concern



Coronavirus: COVID-19 instances have been rising in India


A Covid-19 variant spreading in India, the B.1.617, seems to be extra contagious and has been categorised as being “of concern”, the World Health Organization stated Monday.

“There is some available information to suggest increased transmissibility,” and in addition probably some elevated resistance to vaccine protections, Maria Van Kerkove, WHO’s lead on Covid-19, informed reporters. “As such, we are classifying this as a variant of concern at the global level,” she added.
