It's great to have you watching this Thursday in Los Angeles County California people can add Halloween to the list of events affected by corona virus concerns the county aboard ten million people has banned trick or treating. So you won't see any of this in Los Angeles on October thirty first, the local department of public. Health says it's too difficult to maintain social distancing on porches and front doors. It's been everything from outdoor parties to carnivals to haunted houses but officials say people can still decorate their homes and have events where they stay inside their cars. Critics say the decision is too restrictive and that it'll be difficult to enforce as far as corona virus infections children go to US health organizations. Say More than five hundred thousand American kids have been infected children and young adults are significantly less likely to die from covid nineteen but the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics says, the numbers are reminder that the virus needs to be taken. Seriously we've been reporting the US government health officials have indicated a corona virus vaccine could be available as early as October nine of. The companies working on vaccines though are promising. They won't cut corners in safety to rush out a drug meantime colleges with students back on campus or trying to guard against the spread of covid nineteen. Some of them have said, their case numbers are low and that they've had no major problems with the disease but several of the schools that are struggling with cases say students are responsible. Just. A few weeks into the new school year colleges and universities across all fifty states have reported more than seven thousand cases of Covid. Nineteen UNC Chapel Hill among the first and largest schools to reopen for in person classes was also one of the first to reverse course sending students home to complete the semester online after just one hundred and thirty Cova cases were reported. Several colleges including Howson University East Carolina University and Suny Oneonta have now John the same for schools who had plans PP and ample testing. The question quickly turn to what went wrong. The answer may be as simple as campus life getting in the way. Despite warnings, guidelines and pledges students continue to gather off-campus mostly for parties that has led some local officials like the mayor of Tuscaloosa to close bars for at least two weeks. The ever increasing number of corona virus cases on campus will create two major disruptions for Tuscaloosa if left on invaded.

Part of that planning include extensive corona virus testing a study in the Medical Journal. Jama. Network Open concluded that if colleges tested every student every two days in addition to following strict safety guidelines, campuses could safely reopen but a CO author of the study said, this might not be possible or affordable for many universities. CNN Ten contributed Chris James joins us now to discuss what it's like to get tested Chris. Hey there Karl as you all know, testing for the coronavirus has been a major topic of interest since the pandemic began there are currently two different types of Cova tests. One of the viral tests which tells you if you have an active infection and there's the antibody test which might tell you if you had a previous infection now I want to tell you a little bit more about my experience taking the viral tests and before I get into details, it's Really. Not that bad I promised a swab is placed up your nose and yet it's a bit uncomfortable, but it only lasts about fifteen seconds and then you're all done as you know Carl I was down in Texas and Louisiana reporting on Hurricane Laura. So once I arrived home I wanted to make sure I was indeed negative for the coronavirus before seeing my family. So over the course of two days I, got to separate tests just to be extra safe the. First test I got was a PR test which stands for polymerase chain reaction. This is the most common and reliable test which detects disease by looking for the viruses material. The swabs were then sent to a lab and two days. Later, I received my negative results. Now, I also got a rapid test which promises results in fifteen minutes. Yep. You heard that right fifteen minutes. This is the Antigen test which is much simpler test and can get processed right in. The doctor's office twenty minutes. Later, I was given my negative result. Now, one thing to keep in mind according to the CDC these rapid tests are more likely to miss an active infection as opposed to the test and both tests have had some reports of false positives. Medical experts continued to say that the best way to prevent infection is to wash your hands regularly, cover the coughs and sneezes, and of course, the practice those social distancing guidelines back to you carl. Ten Seconds Trivia the first. Telegraph line was installed between Washington. DC IN WHAT OTHER CITY Baltimore Maryland Philadelphia Pennsylvania Chicago Illinois or Boston Massachusetts. In eighteen forty, four, the message what Hath. God. What was sent in Morse Code from the capital to Baltimore. We first reported on Mr Trash wheel a few years ago saying that though its name is dirty, it's gain is clean. The first one cost about seven hundred, fifty, thousand dollars to build and about one hundred, thousand a year to run, and since it was installed in two thousand fourteen, it's gotten some brothers. When I first came up with the idea for the trash wheel I thought the most rewarding thing I could come from this project would be able to look out in the harbor and see a lot less trash. But just as rewarding as that has been the fact that kids and even adults look at the trash wheel and earn spire become a part of the solution. Baltimore has youthful harbor, but the first thing that people noticed, what's the trash in the harbored? Thirty. Just dawned on me one day why don't we use the flow of water and get rid of it? My name is John. Kelly I. Am the founder of clearwater mills and the inventor of Mr Trash oil. Trash wheel is a water wheel power trashing sceptre. It sits at the mouth of the main tributary to Baltimore Harbor. When the rivers flowing hard that flow of the river will turn the water wheel and power the conveyor, the rake system and pick up the trash. It's all self contained renewable energy. John invented the device we added the Kugler is. My name is Adam Lindquist and I am the director of the Healthy Harbor Initiative at the Waterfront Partnership was Baltimore. Mr Trash will pulls out about two hundred, fifty tons of trash from the harbour every year. It's containers, plastic bottles, chip bags, and plastic bags. But it wasn't enough to just install a trash we need to get the people of Baltimore engaged. When you create a character, you gotta decide you know who is this googly eyed monster living in the harbor we describe him as a Nerdy excitable jokester. He's been viral success on the Internet. We transform this trashing receptor into a larger social media campaign to really promote behavior change and pass legislation. We now have three trash wheels and we're working on the fourth thrash wheel, which is going to be the biggest one yet. Incredibly rewarding to be able to be a part of a city that takes the problem seriously and willing to think creatively leave and try new things and to deal with the problems. Creek might call it really trashy. No one would call it. We leave flashy but with Google is looming large it consumes tons of the harbors garbage eight fantastic vacuum of plastic nothing getting pass to tech. So drastic, a mainstream cleaning machine cities can use to read refuse in a way they don't reviews.
