Dr. Oz said on the "Len Berman and Michael Riedel In The Morning" show that we are in a race to eliminate the virus before it continues to mutate.
"We will have a total of five vaccines to combat the virus but when you hear about the variant strain in the UK it's a major issue because these viruses as they mutate become resistant to some of our therapies so we need to suffocate this virus before it mutates into a version that is more difficult to treat," said Dr. Oz.
Michael asked Dr. Oz if we need to take more precautions now that the virus is becoming more contagious.
"I've believed that you should use surgical masks and wearing two masks if you can do that is probably wise if you're in a high-risk situation," said Dr. Oz.
