New COVID Variants on the Way; Moderna Warns

A recent surge in COVID cases has been witnessed all over the world including countries like China, France, and Germany.

Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in an interview that there is a 20 percent chance new Covid variants may be more dangerous than the ones already there.

France added 148,635 new Covid patients on Thursday and 112 patients died, leaving the European Nation worrying.

The numbers in Italy are also worrying as the country added 81,811 new Covid cases as compared to 76,260 a day before.

New data from the UK's Health Security Agency confirms a third booster dose of vaccine continues to provide robust protection against hospitalisation for older people.

In Shanghai city, China's economic centre, Covid cases jumped more than 60% in a single day to a record 1,609.
