WHO’s India representative Dr Roderico H Ofrin, who is also a member of the JMG, is also likely to be a part of the meeting.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that the fast-moving new variant of the coronavirus is 70 per cent more infectious and appears to be driving the rapid spread in London and southern England.
