Covid: what started in India, won’t stay in India

Do we need to be more concerned about the variant of Covid-19 that is causing havoc in India?

Bodies are washing up on the shores of the Ganges. This sacred river, the lifeblood of India, now a sign of the death that flows through the subcontinent as the deadly second wave of coronavirus continues – with the end still nowhere in sight.
