A Masterclass on Omicron: All You Need To Know

This is not the news any of us wanted to hear: South African scientists have identified a new variant of COVID described as the "worst ever", and it's been detected in several countries around the world. How serious is the threat, what do we know about it - and how much is this down to richer countries refusing to provide vaccines to the Global South?

We're joined by Fatima Hassan live from South Africa, Miriam Brett - director of research and advocacy at Commonwealth, and Prof. Susan Michie and Dr. Helen Salisbury from Independent SAGE.
