January’s COVID Wave (with Laurie Garrett‪)‬ In the Bubble with Andy Slavitt

    • News

XBB.1.5 is being called the most transmissible subvariant of Omicron to date. With multiple mechanisms to evade our immune system, including getting around our monoclonal antibody treatments, it’s driving our January wave and leading to worse outcomes than previous mutations. Andy speaks with science journalist Laurie Garrett, who explains what makes XBB.1.5 unique and why the lack of global surveillance and federal funding could easily erode the advances we’ve made so far to combat COVID.

Keep up with Andy on Twitter and Post @ASlavitt.
