Coronavirus infections are surging as the virus evolves, becoming "too clever", according to the World Health Organisation's special envoy on COVID-19, David Nabarro.

With figures suggesting nearly three million people in the UK are still unvaccinated, what can be done to encourage those people to get their jabs, and is the virus becoming too smart for our vaccines to keep up?

On the Sky News Daily with Niall Paterson, the WHO's Mr Nabarro explains why it's still important to keep protected from coronavirus, and vaccination champion Wendy Francis-White shares her experience helping to get jabs in the arms of those who are vaccine hesitant.
