This week, hosts Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter speak with Dr. Angela Rasmussen, who leads the core virology team at the Viral Emergence Research Initiative at the Georgetown University Center for Global Health, Science and Security. A renowned expert on deadly emergent pathogens, she helps us unlock some of the mysteries around Sars-CoV-2, the COVID-19 virus. She describes the development of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine as a “scientific achievement of our lifetimes”, but also examines the growing number of variants of the virus, which may undermine long term effectiveness of the vaccine, highlighting the need to speed up global vaccination to protect the population from greater pandemic threats.
