It has been a little over a year since we started to grapple with the pandemic.

Just as we were celebrating the incredible scientific efforts that brought us the vaccines, we now see that the virus is mutating into new variants. These variants are making the virus spread faster, and there is talk that they could make these much-awaited vaccines ineffective. To help me understand all things COVID variants I am joined by a leading expert on the issue, Professor Florian Krammer, who leads the Krammer laboratory at the renowned Mount Sinai hospital in New York.

This is the Dive, the show that brings you the world’s leading experts to break down news topics for you.
