Will We All Get Omicron in 2022? (with David Agus‪)‬ In the Bubble with Andy Slavitt

    • News

As we begin 2022, Andy gets the latest on where we stand with Omicron with the help of Dr. David Agus, a professor of medicine at USC, medical contributor for CBS News, and one of the clearest communicators out there. They discuss whether nearly everyone will get COVID-19 because of Omicron, what the latest data show about its severity, and the possibility of variant-specific boosters in the future. Plus, they break down the CDC's new isolation guidelines and David tells Andy what it's like talking COVID with Stephen Colbert.
