Brussels Summits, Biden, Von der Leyen and a new COVID variant

This week is one of the busiest weeks for Brussels and international politics, as it’s the first time the ‘capital of Europe’ is hosting so many leaders at once for NATO, G7 and EU summits. I talk to Alexandra Brzozowski and Kira Taylor on the outcome of the summit and the announcement by von der Leyen and Biden on Friday morning. 

We are also focusing on the new subvariant of Omicron, named BA.2, that is spreading rapidly, leading to a new wave of infections across Europe. With the cases in many countries rising. How worried should people be about the BA.2 variant? Will vaccines protect against it? Evi Kiorri is together with Giedre Peseckyte and Amalie Merch for this story.
