(Studio: Jim Sciutto) Live discussion held with CNN's Dr. Leana Wen & Colorado dept. of public health & environment dir. Emily Travanty about the new variant strain of the coronavirus now in the US. [TRAVANTY - offers views on the spread of the variant, on the need for genetic sequencing of the virus that is being ramped up as in the U.K.] [WEN - offers views on how this variant is more transmissible but still spread the same way, but we have to get it under control faster, on the slow vaccine rollout: we need a national strategy, not turning it over to the states: we have to ramp up rapidly.]
- Sciutto, Jim
