Today, Wednesday, the scientific adviser to the French government, Professor Jean-Francois Delfraissy, said that France is likely to witness a fourth wave of the Corona virus due to the re-emergence of cases caused by the delta strain that was first discovered in India, but it will be more moderate than the previous three waves because The level of vaccinations is different from the previous one.

Delfrisi added, in statements to Radio (France Info) today, that the introduction of Corona vaccines will help mitigate the impact of this new wave of the virus, which many medical experts believe may strike France by September or October.
