With the Omicron variant of Covid-19 being the major story of the day on Tuesday, and President Biden giving an address laying out yet another plan to end the pandemic, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt did an interview where he pushed Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy to recommend individuals impose a "self-lockdown” and “dial back” their lives “on all fronts."

Following a fair question about what someone should do if they tested positive for Covid, there appeared to be an abrupt video edit and awkward transition from another question about the Omicron variant and its mild symptoms.

In this aired question, Holt seemed to fear that those mild symptoms wouldn’t scare people enough to keep them locked in their homes and shut in away from the rest of the world.
