Combatting the Omicron Surge: Latest Updates

January 25th, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Live Online Q&A with William Hanage, Associate Professor of Epidemiology, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

The Omicron surge is driving COVID-19 infections to historic highs, with more new cases being diagnosed daily in the United States than any other time during the pandemic, and healthcare systems threatening to buckle under the pressure. What have researchers learned about Omicron since it first emerged, and how should that inform guidelines for living and working? What can Omicron—with its many evasive mutations—tell us about preparing for the next variant? Join Harvard Chan epidemiologist Bill Hanage for a free, live-streamed Q&A with Elana Gordon of The World. Email your questions. 

Presented jointly with The World from PRX & GBH
