The United Kingdom may have begun to experience the third wave of coronavirus, experts warned as the country reported fresh 3,383 cases on Monday.
Although the new cases in the UK are still “relatively low”, the variant from India has marked an ‘exponential growth’.
Meanwhile, in order to diffuse confusion and stop misinformation, the World Health Organisation (WHO) assigned labels based on the Greek alphabets and named the coronavirus variant that emerged from India as ‘Delta’, while calling the previous variant as ‘Kappa’.
India recorded more than 90 lakh cases of coronavirus and 1.2 lakh deaths in May, the highest monthly caseload ever.
However, the country’s COVID-19 recovery rate improved to 91.06 per cent. Stay tuned for the latest news and updates.
