Pandemic dynamics: How to prevent the next lockdown | COVID-19 Special

Omicron suddenly changed everything. The coronavirus variant shifted the focus to boosters, restricted travel and more home testing. Few governments are eager to return to the blanket lockdowns that robbed so many people of their livelihoods. So what’s the answer?
Measures are becoming more targeted. In Germany, non-essential shops and recreational venues are off bounds for the unvaccinated. Pandemic dynamics mean whatever the measures, it’s the timing that counts.
It’s a balancing act – the right measures to protect our lives and our livelihoods. Even the countries we thought were handling this pandemic so well are struggling to get the balance right.

Travel Restrictions To Prevent Omicron Infections Should Have Come ‘Sooner’: Dr. Gounder

Dr. Celine Gounder joins Kristen Welker to discuss the safety of travel as we await scientific data on the transmissibility of and vaccine efficacy against the omicron variant. Dr. Gounder agrees with President Biden’s decision to tighten travel restrictions, but believes the move is coming too late. “We should have done this sooner. We should have required testing 24 hours prior to travel rather than 72 hours prior to travel. That should have been done with the rise of the delta variant which has a much shorter inception period,” says Dr. Gounder.
