WHO says rush to hospitals worsens India COVID crisis
The World Health Organization says three new COVID-19 variants that are present in India may have contributed to its latest surge.
It also says large public gatherings may be to blame for the crisis.
A devastating second wave is overwhelming India’s hospitals and crematoriums, with more than 300,000 cases reported for the sixth consecutive day.
