MOSCOW, April 27. / TASS /. The World Health Organization (WHO) does not yet have data on the higher infectivity of the new Indian strain of coronavirus. This was stated on Tuesday by the WHO representative in the Russian Federation Melita Vuinovich on the air of the Russia-24 TV channel.
“It is not yet clear if there is a high rise in morbidity in India and even the deaths that Indian health care claims are due to a virus or just the result of very large crowds. And of course the Indian [health] system is overwhelmed right now,” she said.
“I hope we will have a clearer picture by the end of the week,” the representative of the organization stressed.
