Health officials say St. Louis facing third wave of COVID-19

St. Louis is facing a third wave of COVID-19 that could cause more deaths and serious cases.  That’s the warning from the head of the region’s pandemic task force, who is pleading with residents to get vaccinated and return to mask wearing in public.

Health officials say nine people in the area have died and 91 were admitted to intensive care units in the 24 hours prior to the plea going out.
