How could U.S. respond to new COVID-19 variant?

Some governments have already started imposing travel restrictions because of a new potentially dangerous COVID-19 variant detected in South Africa. Britain has banned flights from South Africa and other neighboring countries, and Israel and Singapore also announced tighter border restrictions in response to the latest threat. CBS News chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes joined CBSN to discuss a possible U.S. response.
