Washington, Jan 24 (PTI) Indian-American physician Vivek Murthy, US President Joe Biden's pick for Surgeon General, on Sunday said that the deadly COVID-19 is going to "continue to change" and the country has to be ready for it, calling for better genomic surveillance and more investment in contact tracing to deal with the crisis.

Murthy, 43, who is playing a key role in shaping the COVID-19 policy of the Biden administration, said there is also a need to invest a lot more in testing and contact tracing, because these are also going to be essential.
