"Use by you by the FDA. One is over the counter to require prescription. How good are they do they work? If they do work? How will it test works depends on the situation that it's in. For example, if a test would have one in 104 Positive. If you test those very large number of people who didn't have the virus, you would have more false positives right then true positives. But if you tested a whole lot of people who have the virus that you have a lot more true positives. So it's very confusing to the general public. But in general, they work for what they're intended for, which is for home use for people that they don't have toe go to the doctors or go outside or whatever, and have a test, which prompts the question of why the FDA has not authorized more of them there. They're cheap. You're saying they work. These rapid tests are rapid. And they're widely available in other countries. Why not here? Well, we again respond to applications that are given to us. There are standards that have to be met. And it can be tricky to do these tests. They're also going to be more vulnerable, many of them to variance in, so we're going to have to keep surveillance over them because they may become less accurate, In fact, if variants become prevalent Your agency has acknowledged early missteps with antibody tests a different tests, but many of them were allowed to be used without review. And I do wonder. Is that weighing on your decision? Is that holding back more rapid authorization of Auntie Gin tests? No, I don't think so. I think There are a number of quite a number of applications and before us that they need to satisfy our standards and conditions before we would authorize them. You know, the American public deserves tests that are reliable and we'll do what they say they're going to do under enable I do want to ask. I said a Zay was introducing you that the FDA has made some missteps has buckled to political pressure misrepresented basic science. I was referring to incidents last year, including when Scientists. A bunch of scientists came out and said the FDA had grossly misrepresented data on blood plasma and how effective that could be in treating covert patients, for example. You were in charge now on an interim basis for now, have you made changes that should Cause Americans to be more confident that the FDA is going to accurately represent science and data. Well, I believe that right now we are really free of political pressure that we're making science and database decisions and that will continue with the convalescent plasma. I believe it was more of a Error in description rather than a deliberate misrepresentation. But again is when you came in and took over. Were there any changes where you looked around and thought we need to do this differently? Well, I'm doing a lot of things different, but that's because among very well familiar with the agency. But I believe the agency processes are very robust and we have great assurance that our scientific processes will go on independently. That is Dr Janet Woodcock. She is acting commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration. Dr Woodcock thank you very much for your time and for joining us, we appreciate it. Thanks for the opportunity.

"Anxiety, depression, racial and cultural stress and works with kids, adolescents and young adults. Dr Delap says he's seen a big difference in his patients since the pandemic started. I think it's the zoom fatigue having your face on camera and seeing yourself why you're talking is not like how it is in real life, you know? And so I've noticed a lot of people feeling very uncomfortable with seeing themselves more so. I've also noticed people being more avoided of social experiences, and so which could have big consequences in terms of one's mood and feeling more sad and depressed. If you're not really getting that social reinforcement of engaging with others that you might otherwise get outside of a pendant. As we've been reporting on the show, Children in communities of color are suffering disproportionately. Ah McKenzie study from last summer predicted a learning loss of seven months for the average Middle school student as a result of the pandemic. But the model predicted that that number is nine months for Hispanic students and 10 months for black students. For those of us who are parents or have kids in our lives that we love. What can we do to support them? Dr Delap has ideas. One thing parents can support them by first helping their kids that have language for what they're experiencing. I think sometimes parents or adults can notice these concerns without their kids fully understanding what's going on. So I think the first that would be helping your kids to have a language for and there's a couple of ways that can happen. Um, you can for younger kids, You can get things like mood flip books and helping help them to kind of understand their emotions a little bit better help them to give a name to anxiety. Andre for older kids like adolescents, helping the kids understand how their anxiety might be getting in the way of their goals. Whether it's if the kids really motivated in school, helping them to see how that anxiety is not really helping them. The New year brings even more transitions. How can parents help their Children cope with more changes?.
