United States. Government Publishing Office
This is the May 12, 2021 hearing on "COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Variants and Evolving Research Needs," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Bill Foster: "[J]ust as we've adapted to life in the pandemic, the virus has mutated as it continues to spread around the globe. Each new variant brings the potential for increased contagiousness, disease severity, and evasion of safety measures and vaccine-induced natural immunity. Today, most of the new variants seem to have evolved from national-natural evolutionary pressure, natural selection for infectiousness. One of the commonly expressed worries is about an escape variant of the virus, a superbug that is resistant to our vaccines and may-might evolve in a partially vaccinated population. In a worst-case scenario, such a variant would require us to start over from zero in our vaccine manufacturing, tests, and deployment." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Salim Abdool Karim, Nathan Grubaugh, Stephen Streiffer, and Caitlin Rivers.
