U.S. assistant health secretary Brett Giroir on Monday said all options are "on the table".

Mr Giroir's comments come as the UK grapples with a new variant of the coronavirus, which has forced millions into tighter lockdown restrictions.

"I think everything is possible," Mr Giroir told CNN. "We just need to put everything on the table, have an open scientific discussion and make the best recommendation".

A final decision has not yet been taken, he added.
