WHO warns of dangers of o mutant virus
The World Health Organization warned on November 29 that o variant virus constitutes a very dangerous factor in the world.
It stated that the variant is highly dangerous as it may spread throughout the world to cause a drastic increase in the number of infected cases and it may have catastrophic consequences on some regions.
