Dec. 5, 2021
Michigan was already struggling with its fourth surge of the coronavirus before word came that yet another variant, now called omicron, has mutated its way into circulation.
Now, the omicron variant is said to be the version of COVID-19 with the most mutations we’ve yet seen.
So, what does that mean for us in Michigan? Should the new, potentially more dangerous variant inspire new restrictions, or should things remain the same?
The director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Elizabeth Hertel, joins Flashpoint host Devin Scillian to discuss what’s next with omicron.
