Editor’s note: The U.S. is redoubling efforts in the investigation into the origins of the coronavirus even though the Delta variant is wreaking havoc around the world. Yury Vadimovich Tavrovsky, Russian political commentator and sinologist, was invited to discuss the impact of the fast-spreading variant and the equally harmful “political virus,” and to explain U.S. President Joe Biden’s politics behind the probe. Opinions expressed in this video are his, and not necessarily those of CGTN.
Wang Guan: Talking about the Delta variant of COVID-19, it is fast spreading from Oceania, to Americas, from Asia, to Europe. How do you see this variant impacting our social and economic life, and perhaps even in the longer run, geopolitics?
