As U.S. Covid cases stall, top health officials warn variants could 'hijack' nation's progress

The U.S. is at a "critical nexus" in its response to the coronavirus pandemic as highly transmissible variants threaten to overturn the nation's progress in a matter of weeks, even as more vaccines make their way into the arms of Americans, top health officials warned Wednesday.

The emergence of the new variants has largely coincided with the sharp decline in daily new cases across the U.S. since January, but those figures have since stalled.

The highly contagious variant first identified in the U.K., known as B.1.1.7, "looms ready to hijack" the nation's success, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Wednesday.

"So much can turn in the next few weeks," Walensky said at a White House Covid-19 response briefing. "How this plays out is up to us. The next three months are pivotal."

And the leadership of the Gulf states like Texas and Louisiana are doing their part.
