The World Health Organization claims that a new, even more, contagious Indian strain of coronavirus could spread in Europe soon. Hans Kluge, the WHO European regional bureau director said so as cited by RBC-Ukraine.

This particular strain already replaced other strains in a number of countries.

"We've seen this before. Last summer, the cases of disease gradually increased in the younger age groups, then they moved to older age groups, which led to a destructive outbreak, lockdown, and lots of deaths in autumn and winter 2020", he said. 

The new mutation of the disease may affect even those with immunity from it.
