Third Wave, Says WHO Boss

The world is in the early stages of the third Coronavirus wave, given the surge in the Delta strain, says WHO chief Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus. He said the virus continues to evolve resulting in more transmissible variants and is present in 111 countries. Deaths have been rising after 10 weeks of steady decline, with the last week marking the fourth consecutive week of rising infections.
