From ABC News this is perspective a closer look at the week's top stories and the stories. You may have missed. I'm Sherry Preston. Coming up new hope for treating covert day. This shows that run. Desa has a clear-cut significant positive effects cities and states planning to reopen and helping to prevent a second wave of corona virus cases reward to do it without infecting more people or overwhelming the hospitals and universities facing tough decisions. Should they open campuses in the fall? And how will they do it or problem? And it's a big one three to see ways to protect those who are vulnerable all ahead on perspective while there are no medications currently approved to treat people with a novel Corona Virus. There are therapies are showing promise and this week there were several therapies being investigated as potential life. Saving OPTIONS RIM disappear the drug which has been used to treat. Ebola is still subject to ongoing clinical research. But it's showing promising early results in a government sponsored trial of more than one thousand seriously ill and hospitalized patients Dr Renisha Metaph emory university. Medical School is one of the teams conducting that trial of severe. Abc's George Stephanopoulos talked about it with him on Good Morning America. You worked on this study. What's the most important thing you want? All our viewers to know about it so having taking care of patients for eight weeks now with many colleagues working hard we have been getting patients better but we are looking to find a medication that helps get them home to their families and make more room for other patients for us to take care of and I think now we have the first glimmer of hope of something that could do that. Is this glimmer of hope. Has Been so exciting so many. This was focused on hospitalize patients. What do we know about what it meant? For the mortality rate for those who had this severe illness so again the data is very preliminary we still need to analyze more data and we have more patients coming for follow up so we need to see exactly which patients this impacted the most and see if we need to add additional medications are additional treatments to improve mortality of our patients overall. And what does it mean for those? Who have milder cases or just developing symptoms? Could this drug be used to treat them as well? So most antivirals tend to work better earlier in the course of disease and so we would definitely like to offer this to patients earlier in their disease. It is an intravenous medicine so it can only be given in the hospital but we are planning to offer this medicine as early as possible. To as many patients that qualify. And what's the next step in your research so weird now that Working with the NIH to adapt the clinical trial of to look at other medications in combination with Ramdas severe. So good we WANNA learn how severe works for patients to it. Works best. In what additional medications or therapies are needed to really improve the outcomes all patients are different. So we want to make sure that we're tailoring their therapy to what their actual needs are. In addition we have seen great advancements in the care of these patients through a wonderful critical care teams and other hospital teams. And so we want to integrate these therapies into that overall model of care that they're receiving that is encouraging news. Dr Mehta thank you for that work. Thank you for joining us. Thank you very much disappear has shown promise in preliminary trials the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Dr Anthony Fauci said this week. Those shortened recovery time for patients treated with Graham disappear are significant today. The shows that run desa via has a clear cut significant positive effect in diminishing the time to recovery. We think it's really opening the door to the fact that we now have the capability of treating and I can guarantee you as more people more companies more investigators getting hall. It's going to get better and better but ABC's chief medical correspondent. Dr Jennifer Ashton tells. Good Morning America Anchor Amy Roebuck testing. The drug still has got a long way to go. Let's break it down to start with what we know for sure about run DESA. Vr This is an IV medication that was initially developed. Actually to treat. Ebola didn't work so well against Ebola but in a lab it showed good antiviral activity against the other corona viruses SARS and Murs also showing good activity in animals against those two viruses right now. Multiple countries huge international trials ongoing for run DESA VIR against covert nineteen and according to Dr Anthony Fauci the study released preliminary data from the NIH trial revealed that it has shown that it can block. Kovic nineteen right so we heard from Dr Fouled. She giving that good news but he also said there were some caveats. They're always caveats in science. Amy and it is so important to understand as we interpret and analyse and review data. It's not a black or white situation so the theories right now are that yes. Ramdas severe has shown in these preliminary trials that it is safe and well tolerated in critically. Ill patients with cove nineteen. That's very important. Yes it absolutely. Needs more formal study and it may show different effects when it is combined with other medications or therapeutic options for these patients. So all of that. We still don't have a good grasp on at this point all right. So what do we need to learn? Look as these continue because just as the good news from the. Nih study came out. There was opposing news out of China which actually showed Desa Veer showed no significant benefits so ongoing. We need to look deeper at this. Nih data that is very important. We need to see if it can be given to less sick patients because remember this was given to patients in ICU. Settings so we want to see how it behaves if we give it to patients earlier in their disease and we need to see. Is there a clear survival benefit? Does this drug save lives? So those will all be things to be watching the future. Doctor Sue Jonah. Chandra Shaker is a top ear-nose-and-throat specialist with offices in both midtown Manhattan and suburban New Jersey. She started reading about the corona virus in journals and then started tracking clinically in early March. Even this season healthcare worker was shocked and scared by what she saw. She also sees things very differently for healthcare going forward. Dr Chandrashekhar is good friend of mine. We zoomed earlier. This week. You go into the city it's deserted. It's totally quiet. People are scared. Everybody's wearing masks and there is a look of fear in people's eyes that's really similar to what we saw after nine eleven. Yeah and and the differences after nine eleven. We were all in it together. We were not a danger to each other. We weren't going to bring nine eleven home to our families With this there's such a I I have to tell you. I was so anxious that today was going to be my last healthy day on Earth for the first two weeks of this one of the things that is frightening to me. Is this idea that oh where easing up. Oh we'll say it's getting better and I think that people are going okay. I've read all I need to read. I've I've gone on social media. I've figured it out and looks like we're done here time to go and that's when it gets really scary isn't it? Yeah that's it's really scary and this unfortunately sherry is where politics and medicine are clashing and society is getting hurt. So we can't keep our country and our world closed forever like people have to eat. People have to work. People need the mental health of getting away from their families. I for some amount of time during the day. Our kids need the mental health break of being with their friends of doing all the things that we used to do a month ago as we start opening our world for commerce. We need to know that we still need to physically distance ourselves so we still need to be six feet from other people and we still need to be wearing a mask and we still need to be wearing gloves. Even if we go shopping we still need to wash your hands for twenty seconds. We still need to take off our shoes. The secondly entered the home. That's going to happen for a long time. Americans are not used to wearing masks in life. And we have to get used to that. I think we're going to have a real issue getting people back into offices and working because I think there is a very big amount of stress out there and anxiety about going back. Do you think that yeah I really do? And I think when you if you don't have to go in and you've been working from home. Why shouldn't you continue if you are getting all the work of your company done and you don't have to be there and you can be on a conference call and you can be on call? You can be this new three that I think we're actually going to see a difference in the way A significant percentage of businesses do business. What about doctors? I will tell you I am a much much better doc. I can give much better healthcare face to face in a room with you then I can with telemedicine but it's not so bad with telemedicine and frankly we're going to develop things where I can almost touch and feel telematically. We are all making our waiting room safer. Our schedules lighter so that we can. In fact see fewer people You know so. You don't have that at Stereotypical waiting room of a doctor's office where everyone's leafing through the same magazines and coughing on each other right. So that's not gonNA happen again I can see you telemedicine and then say you know what I wanted to do this treatment and if you're not feeling better when we meet again by telemedicine I really do need you to come in and I'm going to get and because you are elderly or have a underlying disease you're GonNa be the eight o'clock patient so you're GonNa get in get out and leave and in my suburban office in Wayne. You'RE GONNA wait in your car and we're GONNA call you in your car and tell you to come upstairs and you're not you're even just like race through the waiting room and get right into the exam room and then race back out and do all the paperwork. All the front desk work can be done remotely. Frankly I think remind to go through a full cycle of this which means we're going to go through essentially a year of this one of the things that this has done has increased all our empathy for fellow human beings whether it's wearing a mask because I don't want to transmit my germs to you reaching out through telemedicine or visiting someone who is by themselves alone isolated. We're all sort of seeing things through other people's eyes but I don't. It's only been six weeks but I feel like that's kind of a big deal. It is a bad time and yet there's so much good that we are finding out about ourselves about our each other about our environment. I mean we have a whole talk about the fact that Ed that disgusting smog over every city has lifted. We could is huge big talk about the fact that the Milky Way was visible from the streets of San Francisco and at the peak of Mount Everest was was visible for the first time in history. We are finding beauty in small things. We are finding beauty in ourselves and in others. I think we have to know that. There's going to be a lot of recovery whether it's physical recovery and I will tell you I mean the clapping for the healthcare workers. This that it's it's wonderful. It's really wonderful. We will need help for a long time. None of us signed up for a constant flow of death and destruction. And I think that's you know and I think the fact that we are seeing such positive outpouring of affection from people is really helping. The healthcare workers the frontline workers. We are respecting grocery store clerks. Like we are as a society respecting rosary storms. That is a beautiful another economic Gut Punch this week from the Labor Department under the three point. Eight million Americans filing for unemployment benefits last week bringing the total during the pandemic to more than thirty million and that may be far fewer than the real total since states have struggled to process claims layoffs accelerated in the country estates moved to contain the virus and even as some places reopen much of the US economy remains effectively shutdown. That's ABC's Aaron Katersky. Among those out of work oilfield workers is. The price of oil has simply plummeted Jesse lanes chief operator of Nimble Crane and Pecos. Texas planes are flying cruise. Ships aren't sailing. Buses aren't moving when you look at it sitting here and you get knocked back two years. That's depressing Mike. Bowman who also works there says right. Now you're just hanging on and keeping their fingers crossed any point you know owners could show up and say hey look you know. We just can't afford to do this anyway. And I understanding. I mean trying to run a business. You're trying to make money. You're not trying to lose money. Another reminder of the economic toll the pandemic is taking the US economy shrunk by nearly five percent in the first quarter of the year the first contraction in six years and likely not even close to how much it will shrink sees numbers are only January through March. The payment protection program was implemented to serve as a lifeline for small and independent businesses. But those who qualify for the loans have experienced some issues just getting the money and the program is ignited some controversy for lending money to large businesses like shake shack. The Los Angeles Lakers workers are protesting and businesses have been saying the money just isn't enough. They want to reopen. Abc's Alec Stone spoke to a few restaurant owners who were pleading with California's Governor to allow them to open their doors backup again in their dining rooms owning a restaurant right now. Sherri as a waiting game. How long can you hold on to survive most doing to go order? Summer selling groceries. But what they're making from that is pennies compared to what they would make with a full dining room. That's why a group of restaurant owners from rural areas of California where there are few of any cove in nineteen cases went to the State Capitol here several days ago to plead with the governor to lead them reopen their dining rooms shirley cats owns a dancing tomato restaurant and Yuba city about an hour. North of Sacramento furloughed are fifty one employees on March nineteenth. We held their hand through the process of unemployment Because it felt it was our responsibility to do so and help them through that process and every day. Since we've been trying to reinvent what new business will look like in our industry loser employees who live in the community their friends sandy and Chris Brown on the Happy Viking Sports Club Yuba city so we are a full service sports pub in beautiful downtown Yuba City we have the best chicken wings in northern California and they were just trying to hold on right now. Chicken Wings and beer aren't always taught to go items instead of a full restaurant. We're serving one person at a time. So we've seen a seventy four percent drop in revenue for the last six weeks you've account has had only one death and only sixteen cases overall thirteen have recovered. Sandy and Chris want some relief from the governor. I never thought we'd see a complete government instituted shutdown economy. You prayer you prepare for you know having those slow months but this is definitely different. When you're down seventy percent you can't prepare for that. They've gone from forty seven employees down to eight and they're struggling just to keep the eight. Some of their employees have worked the Happy Valley pub since it opened twelve years ago. We know their their kids their parents and this is affecting all of them. This is a very very close to us have have been out of work and they're going through severe hardships right now and those you know forty seven plays relying on us for an income to pay rent mortgage those type of things so it's been that's probably been our biggest concern. Is Our employees. Their Fellow restaurant owners argue. California is so diverse that San Diego is very different than Yuba city or. Eureka is very different than La and that stay at home. Rule should not affect the entire state right now. But that's how it's working governor Gavin. Newsom saying he hears them and the changes are coming not today but they are coming. We BELIEVE WE ARE WEEKS. Not Months away from making meaningful modifications and as things loosen up. The governor is promising more local control over orders last control because California is so big. The State is seven hundred seventy miles long back to Charlene Cats. The dancing tomato. She's focused on making sure. Her restaurant survives this and thrives. Moving forward really want to get back to cooking again for perspective. Alex Stone. Abc News in Los Angeles on Friday. We got a little non covert news as presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Joe Biden former vice president told. Msnbc's Mika Brzezinski that he categorically denied passback positions of sexual assaults issues sexually assault terror rate. No it is not true. I'm saying unequivocally it never never happened. Didn't never happen. Biden was also asked about this idea that he took allegations from people like Brad Kavanagh Accuser Christine Block Ford more seriously than he took. This claim his response. Leaving women means taking the women's claims seriously when she steps forward and and then vetted look into this this. That's true in this case as well. Women have a right to be heard and and the pressure to rigorously investigate. Klenge they may. President trump responded to Biden's comments on Friday saying during an audio interview that Biden Accuser. Tara Reid seems very credible to him. The president who has been accused by multiple women himself sexual misconduct also said. There's a double standard in the way that Brad Kavanagh was treated and the way that Joe Biden was treated coming up. We're going back to college by some university.

You may have missed. I'm Cheri Preston. Coming up how deaf blind Americans are living in the new normal and how to perform your best during those work video conferences but I the cove nineteen pandemic has turned education into a massive nationwide experiment with teachers parents and students all trying to figure out how to learn remotely on the fly. New York City announced this week it would be adjusting. Its grading system. All a good number of school districts across the country are just saying enough and ending the year early when it comes to colleges and universities. Some students have been protesting saying online. Learning is not what they thought that beginning when they paid their tuition now. A number of colleges were talking about plans for the fall. Purdue University President Mitch. Daniels set a letter to students saying it plans to separate people by age invulnerability. While limiting class size. He talked about it this week with. Abc's Michael Strahan overwhelming numbers are saying. They want to be here. Are Our applications set? Another record this year acceptances of our offers has set a record which surprised this and I'm hearing every day from students who one L. Will we make arrangements so that they can pursue their education and get their lives? Started on schedule. They wanted our problem. And it's a big one will be to see if we can devise ways to protect those who are vulnerable. So how safe do students feel going back to school? Abc News correspondent. Todd ant has a couple of kids in college he spoke with his daughter lives who's entering her senior year at Florida. Atlantic University in. It's been living in Florida during the pandemic. What is it like living in Florida while this whole pandemic who's been going on? I would say people here like are taking it serious but at the same time. It's a little bit more. I sadly up north like everyone's really like stuck in combined to the House here. People are still going about their day a little bit. More women did Florida Atlantic. Send everybody home. When did you actually have to stop going on campus right after spring break? We didn't return to classes so I would say my spring do remember when my spring break was wasn't late March yes oh campus shutdown no more classes so march eighth your home so this is a little side note. My my mom. Her grandmother passed March. Fourth Liz came up for the weekend of March seventh. Ooh stayed till Monday. The ninth pretty much. As soon as you got back everything really started to blow up. So that's when it got a little crazy so when you think about I mean the way that's been the last couple of weeks and and maybe looking ahead the summer but in the fall. What are your thoughts about going back to school? I mean has anybody talked to you about? It received any guidance about returning to school. I have not seen any talk about opening campus backup. I'm pretty sure summer is going to be all online. That's what I would feel comfortable with like hopefully fall. We could return back to campus but yeah I think for now. Everything is like staying online. Nothing's GonNa Change so this is your junior year. How would you say this is affected it pretty seriously right so certainly? Won't forget your senior. Yeah Yeah I'm thankful that it wasn't my junior year. I mean my senior year if I was graduating while this was happening I think I would feel like pretty disappointed but I think that it didn't really affect me. That much of seniors that that that are not going to have a real graduation that yeah yeah. There's really nothing that they can say. I'm sure that there I didn't we didn't really go into it a lot but I think that like naturally anybody's GonNa feel just disappointed. It's like what they wait for. I feel like in college. Even my cousin should be graduating and is not gonna be able to walk but I did. My my school did email. Everybody that if you're a graduating senior you will get a chance to walk. You did go on campus for a couple of days before it broke out what was but it had already broken out already. Can you feel something general feeling around the campus? When WITH UP THIS IS WHY. I say no because I had spring break. I don't really remember like before spring break. I think that it was like a topic of conversation but it was nowhere near how it is being treated now so you weren't really on campus then blew no. I never was like on campus when this stuff happening. I can't even remember being there when you know this stuff broke out. You know from my perspective appear. It's a seemed like Florida was just a little more relaxed about it because there weren't that many cases. Yeah was your sense. 'cause you going you know you go to buy food you go to the supermarkets and all that. I mean that's unease or or. Do you think people were not gonNA happen here? No it was definitely a sense of unease like now I noticed that most stores you have to have a mask to come in before it wasn't mandatory now. It is mandatory People definitely really scared. Like I remember it when it first quarantine I was serious and it is still a serious now like every there was like no cars on the road now a little bit. It's still a thing but it's died down like there's regular like five o'clock rush hour traffic I still think it's like more Easy going here. I guess. Maybe it shouldn't be but I still notice like people were taking it serious like nowhere near like New York and New Jersey. That makes sense it goes. So here's the series. The big serious question the ten million dollar question. Your mother and I wanted you to come home. Ah You really fought us on this whole thing as it served as it turned out young lady. I think about I think I think it worked out in the end. You being down there. You probably were a bit safer than you would be if you were up here. Plus I think you would have you know pulled your para out of your head in with everybody here. I just have a little slightly more freedom here because I can still leave the house like I'm not going to get fined for being on the road. Yeah I think it did work out that I'm here. Even though I still wish that I was able to come home and visit It probably did work out better. I stayed here look through miss. Everybody here I do miss everyone and just like you know dinners and overhead. Some great dinner set. You really sorry to now. I know that is something missing out on and just in fun to be in the House of everyone but I don't know you know how I get a little antsy. Sometimes you'll be back soon. Tia have you been eating well So there's how you've been feeling health wise lately I feel fine. I got a sore throat probably like a few weeks ago and like I was freaking myself out a little bit about it but it was just you know sometimes when you sleep with air on and the the fan. It's normal other than that. I've been feeling fine. I just I'm like a very clean sanitary person to begin with just been washed my hands and you know whenever I go out to taking the necessary precautions. Sueno whenever I come home imagine being unable to see or hear throughout all of this the one cents. You truly rely on that sense of touch. That's also been taken away from you. And a lot of ways. There are thousands of Americans for whom the last month and a half has seriously challenged their ability to thrive ABC's Devon Dwyer reports on deaf blind Americans grappling with isolation and social distancing during the pandemic for most of us sites and sounds of the Kobe. Emergency had been inescapable the number of cases of Kuroda virus spiking here in the US. This is a terrible experience but for some Americans. The scope of this outbreak has been uniquely difficult to face. My name is Philip Wismer. I am line. Philip wismer a student at Gallaudet University in Washington. Dc His one of an estimated forty thousand Americans facing cove in nineteen while unable to clearly see or hear have not gone off campus since March eighteen. I only come out in my dorm. Food the Mayo. And that's about it. It sounds loaning. Yeah it is sometimes I do feel Lonely my other friends. That are completely blind. Feeling very very isolated deaf-blind Americans survive by touch hand over hand to communicate fingers on Braille signs for mobility hugs and handshakes to feel connected. Experts say deaf blindness is a spectrum not everyone experiences complete darkness and total silence but touch is critical and now comes with significant health. Risks at many guides are fearful of being touched and touching back twenty eight year old Tyler Samuel of Nashville Tennessee. Says she's fighting that loneliness relying on her partner for help with daily tasks a genetic condition since birth. His degraded her hearing and sight or minute. Just really worried that I wouldn't find that independence and when you find it you don't WanNa lose it and so pretty kind of chipped away is It kinda lowers your self. Esteem Samuel still walks to work everyday by herself. This is my now kind of empty wall comb Pediatric Surgery Coordinator Vanderbilt University Hospital. She's a freelance opera singer with dreams of going big but the pandemic has prompted some soul-searching brand ago to commit and she was very young and thirty early thirties. And it kind of prompted me to go ahead and get my match directive. My will together something that I wanted. My wishes to be not on a trip to the hospital. What Deaf Blind Americans told? Abc News. They fear most is an assumption in a lot of medical communities. That it's better to be than to seem. Harbin and Girma is a leading advocate for the community. I would be deeply terrified of I would not get communication access that my will not get the care needed if I were to get the virus and go to the hospital. She says it's a fight for equality. The daughter of an Eritrean refugee grandma is the first deaf blind woman to graduate from Harvard Law. School in two thousand fifteen president. Obama recognized her as a champion of change. When I'm asking you the questions today hopping you're actually feeling my questions with your fingers. Ask Me Questions. I feeling the preston with Special Braille Keyboard and guide dog Milo by her side. Girma in an informal network of deaf blind advocates are determined not to be forgotten certainly not succeed to have a disability and Giogio with duck linus. I think makes people very uncomfortable. Generally Rebecca Alexander of New York City wants the world to know that deaf blind professionals can pitch into. She's volunteering her services as a counselor to hospital workers on the frontlines and just knowing that even someone like me who the community I think at large if they knew how limited by vision in my jury was they might not consider via someone they reach out to for help and it does feel good to be able to provide. That Ashley Bent a new coordinate services for the deaf blind in North Carolina says police in rural areas are checking on residents who don't have technology to communicate. They contacted us which was beautiful and so we were able to work with the officers. Who HAVE THE APPROPRIATE TV to go in and check on step consumer to make sure that they were safe. That so important. Because we're all going near Seattle deaf-blind Sisters Nancy and Debbie summer sticking together through it all without Connecticut. We thank goodness. We have computers talk to each other persistence to stay connected to contribute to the recovery. The deaf blind community raising its voice in its own way. What do you like into sing these days? I left Queen. I liked the Olive Bohemian rhapsody. And like so many dreaming of that big escape after. Kovin what I would like to do after this is all over with steak appification. I'm David Wire in Washington you've done. We've done it for this show. Seems like everybody's doing it for their jobs zoom calls. You probably figured out by now that sometimes they don't always go as planned following some pretty funny in at least one pretty disturbing incident involving a California public official recently perspectives producer. Abc's Eric Malo us some tips on zoom etiquette. A lot of us have found ourselves spending more time in front of a camera on Zoom Google meat and other APPs during this pandemic unfortunately some of us have had some embarrassing moments in some of those moments have gone viral. Take take what happened with Vallejo California Planning Commissioner Chris. Platts R recently. He want introduces pet to his colleagues onscreen online and there. He is throwing his cat off the screen. He also cursed drank alcohol on that video. Call he resigned this past week. Then there's this news reporter filing a report from her bathroom so people have to do this much longer but she did not know that her husband was behind her in the shower. And then there's Jennifer people other professions. Don't what happened. Who needed a bathroom break and brought her device with her. Only problem is she forgot to turn off. The cameras saw nothing unlike in. Ups initially the final leg or correspondent will remain on good morning. America was seen wearing very short shorts below his sued. The camera which he himself was operating was pointed a little too low. Guess what that went viral to. We'll took it in stride. I tried to take life seriously but not myself so I've had a good laugh at this but I don't want anyone to think that I don't really respect and love my job and I've had a lot of fun and I know everyone else has to allow Z. Cam Robert so what are the rules for? Zoom Advocate. How do you keep from making sure this doesn't happen to you? Let's bring in our Dana woman editor in chief at the tech website and gadget. She has videoconferencing tips. Keeping Laptop on your desk away from your face on calls where people have leaned in a little too much and then you just get a screen full of somebody's face and that can be a little intense in that dirty laundry. It's probably best to put that in a hamper. Also been on calls where you can really see in the background. That someone's house is a mess. Or maybe you're staring at a pile of laundry on the floor to me. That's actually a little more intimate and a little more of a Faux Pas but those things said seem like Faux Pas. Your colleagues will likely understand. I don't think there's much to be ashamed of. Your baby is crying or your pet is making a lot of noise. I think people can get very defensive and apologetic about that. Actually make a lot of people. Find that endearing so clean up your space and keep a little bit of space between you and your camera and while we may not have to put on our very best outfits try to dress professionally hit. Where can I find your comfort zone? Everyone will probably in this period of some sort of standard is going to be different from one person to another over. How far do you want to sink in your personal hygiene and your business casual work from home? Where or you start to feel. Like you've crossed the line. I think many of us have probably progressively loosened up. Finally just make sure before dialing into that zoom call. You behave as you would if you were going into the office.
