How Scientists Race Against Omicron and Future Variants

White: You have to consider the severity of the new variant. The next thing you have to ask is, “Does the vaccine cover us?” And the answer that we’re seeing right now is, “Yes.” But in the future, it could be, “No.” And so I’m going to ask Moderna and Pfizer: “Can you adapt your vaccine?” And they are already doing this. And what I think people haven’t realized is that we’re going to see the largest-scale mutations, called recombination in virological terms, between the variants of interest. So if we mix the best bits of delta with the best bits of omicron we can create a super new strain that may be better of both [at infecting or sickening people]. So we need to look for these hybrid viruses, and they will appear in the future. They will come.
