Healthy Returns - the path forward with geneticist Dr. Kari Stefansson, CEO of deCODE genetics


In the fifth installment of CNBC Events' Healthy Returns: The Path Forward digital series, Meg Tirrell is joined by Dr. Kari Stefansson, CEO of deCODE genetics. They discuss how Iceland's strategy to track the spread of coronavirus through an aggressive testing and tracing program can be applied in U.S. and new research that reveals how travelers from New York City became the primary spreaders of the virus domestically. The U.S. has a far larger population than Iceland, but also far greater resources to leverage, says Dr. Stefansson.
