COVID-19 Infections Are Increasing Globally

"Is kind of the pulse of this. Pandemic globally right now alana. Where are we at with infections. Well the big picture of marco is that the world is actually experiencing a steady increase in infections leaders at the. Who again sounded the alarm today. Because it's been seven straight weeks of rising infections actually is some of the highest surges yet in the pandemic and it's been four weeks streep of reisen deaths would areas most impacted. We have a sense of that. So i talked with ali mokdad about this. He's with the institute for health metrics at the university of washington and he's been modeling this pandemic since the start he says what's going on in five regions really stands out so i that is an increase in brazil. That snow started to come down so brazil is the big one. Neighboring countries like argentina and chile are now starting to experience rises to and then here the other hot spots this a big rise which still going on in india pakistan bangladesh at bark that is an increase in europe and the middle east following. What's your doping seeing. That is a. It is in cases in the philippines and that this is in south africa and african country. That's now started to come down so the fact that infections are increasing globally even parts of the us. We don't want to forget that. That really worries him. I mean it sounds like overall the world is just not close to controlling this virus. Do scientists have a handle on why cases continued to rise even with vaccines. Is it now all about the variants. Not points to the variance and lots of scientists do variants like be one one seven have become a dominant in europe and this has been found to be more transmissible. But there's another strong message. I'm hearing from a lot of scientists like angela rasmussen. she's just at georgetown. And as of this month the university of saskatchewan which is that these rises are not just from variants like the breakthrough masking and distancing another really important prevention

"505, the newest University of Washington covert projection show. We continue to head in the right direction, but One expert tells Cuomo's Ryan Harris the variance could be a speed bump Those projections from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation of the first to project all the way to June 1st and include the possible edition of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, and they show only modest increases in the number of deaths from the May 1st prediction. Aah! Me's Dr Ali Mokdad says Washington is in pretty good shape. But he says California and 16 other states are in a borderline point where a bump and infections could cause a spring wave. The United States and general coming down for some states may level up in April that made you to the new valiant UK, California value all the South African Brazilian Barry because they're more infectious go up a little bit cases, but not mortality as much simply because people are vaccinated. Poked out tells me they know very little about those so called California or West Coast variants, including whether they're more contagious or if the vaccines protection against them is diminished like it is with the South Africa variant. The doctor. Mokdad says Johnson and Johnson's vaccine would be a game changer, in part because the ease of transport and storage since it only requires basic refrigeration rather than the deep freeze, cold chain increased capacity to vaccinate people, and it's also only single door. So if I stand in that area, do it once I don't have to come back and vaccinate them. And so this is a big big improvement for us. And of course, you know more vaccines available. It will meet me that Lester Population of the virus, it will mean less. That's so it's.

"There is no stockpile. Washington and other states were preparing to receive a surge of covert vaccines after the Trump administration promised to stop holding back second does is now Cuomo's Charlie Harder tells us There weren't any doses they were being held back. Washington Post reports to the Trump administration has already been shipping out all the vaccines that are available. This is despite the health and human services secretary saying earlier this week that operation Warp speed would release the vaccines being held in reserve for second shots. There is no extra vaccine on the way the Washington State Health Department was blindsided in a tweet. They say they understand why people may feel the situation is confusing and frustrating. We've reached out to health and human services for comment. Charlie Harder come, O'Neill say projections for when Washington state would run out of ICU bed showed that was supposed to happen sometime within the next week. Dr Ali Mokdad with UW's Institute for Health Metrics and evaluations is we're still close to capacity. A covert hospitalizations air rising by expected hospitalization and pressured hospitals will come down towards the end of this month and next month. So basically we have done a good job so far avoiding over one You mean our medical centers here and to stay? Look. Dad says that pressure reduction for hospitals will come as more people get their vaccines And as the surge declines heading into spring, he says, We did well keeping holidays spread down and that the spikes we're seeing now might not actually be spikes because of holiday reporting delays. Feds aren't keeping their promises on Corona virus vaccine supply, according to one local public health officer. Come was Ryan Harris says Morgan County Health officer Dr Jeff Duchin says he can't speak to word the federal stockpile doesn't exist, as officials claimed. But he says the pace of vaccine delivery hasn't kept up with what was advertised under Operation Warp speed. You're not getting as many doses as we anticipated. The doses haven't been increasing each week. We have very little insight into the supply issues at the federal level, but We are ready and willing and very eager to receive whatever doses are available as soon as they can come to us do, Jin says. Despite that they have managed to administer more than 60% of the doses they've received. So far Do. Jin is also concerned that King County's case numbers have been on a steady rise. And, he says, with the more transmissible variants likely to become widespread, that'll make the virus even harder to control. Ryan Harris, come on. In Washington state troopers began getting the cove in 19 vaccine this week. State Patrol says their employees are at a higher risk of contracting the virus due to the nature of their duty making contact with drivers.

"Play at home at Loom and field. I'm meteorologist Kristen Clarke have a great weekend drizzle continues in downtown Seattle, though it's 45 degrees here in the middle of 20 minutes of nonstop news on coma with 305. There's still no clear picture of the effects of holiday traveling gatherings on coronavirus numbers, according to experts behind the covert projections, comas, Ryan Harris explains. The issue is the lag and reporting caused by the holiday, says Dr Ali Mokdad with UW's Institute for Health metrics and Evaluation and because they can't get complete and accurate data, Mokdad says I H M E won't issue new projections until next week. The last projections right before Christmas. Have Washington at 8048 deaths by April 1st more than 1000 deaths lower If we all wear masks, the new projections will be the first that go out to May 1st. Dr Mokdad says the other concern is the possible change in infection because of New Year celebrations. What has happened, and Thanksgiving and Christmas family celebration nearly is celebration among the younger adults, quite honestly and among outside your family circle, so it may change the way we will see infection coming down. Because younger people would be more likely to get in fact, did you to New Year's Eve celebrations, and it may result in us seeing what we have seen in summer. What cases were going up and best thing was increasing, and we're catching more cases. But we didn't see a rise in hospitalization and their eyes and death. Right now we think Horizon hospitalization, rising infection, advise and death because everybody was being impacted put, Mokdad says. More infections among younger people partying on New Year's Eve Also likely means more people without symptoms spreading the virus, which means in a couple of weeks, we could see another surge among older people. Mokdad says. He's also not changing his prediction that will start to return to normal life by April or may really going strong in the summer despite the hiccup in the initial rollout of the vaccine. What has happened is the vaccine hit up is anyway, It happened. We didn't have much of exceeds. So imagine if we have let's say $100 million given to states and they're not able to get it up so they couldn't get A small number of those is so we know every problem with fixing it. So why the time to start having a lot of vaccines coming in? That would be much easier for us, but to solve it Now, then later, when you have the vaccine, Mokdad says he's encouraged that our daily number of vaccinations rose to 700,000 and President elect Joe Biden's pledged to get to a million a day in his 1st 100 days. But he's worried about a delay in U. S approval of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine because even though it's only 70% effective It's much easier to move and store because it only needs simple refrigeration and that the U. S prepaid for 500 million doses. They didn't understand the United States said who never never prove it. After the endless we have a date that we looked at it. So I'm concerned about delay in authorization off the AstraZeneca vaccine that we have the most forward, and it's the easier to distribute. So I'm assuming sometimes in a couple of bus. We don't hear the debate. What are we gonna do about this vaccine and how we're gonna authorize it? Do you have enough data for me and others in the scientific community feel comfortable about saying Yeah, this vaccine is safe. I will take it myself tells me as we see a rise in covert numbers, even without being able to pin down. Their timing, he expects will cool our behavior as we have during past spikes, but the other side, I'm concerned Once we start the vaccine, and that was it is warming up concerned. In April, I made three prematurely. Relax. That's my biggest concern. So the message from Got another public health leaders remains the same. We need to keep up our guard, limit our activities, wear masks and take all the other steps needed to keep coronavirus activity down as we continue to get people vaccinated. Ryan Harris.

The vaccines that protect us from 19? No doubt in my mind. It is who's gonna protect us from herself. We have a vaccine that's working. That's very effective and very safe.

That total is now up to seventy two hundred one. But with the vaccine and 95% mask wearing more than 1100 of those lives could be saved High. A Jimmy's Dr Ali Mokdad says the difference is because they don't know if the recent spike is because of Thanksgiving or holiday reporting delays. We catching was the holidays.

"Latest covert projections become owes, Ryan Harris tells us, adding vaccines to the projection show they will save lives. Let's start with the numbers. New projections from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington show The number of deaths should go down because of the governor's latest restrictions. Let's Well up to nearly 6700 deaths by April 1st with daily death totals peeking in mid February. The daily new infection numbers peaking in the 75 hundreds in late January and ICU beds expected to run out in our state by January, 13th It's still a little early to gauge the effect. All the traveling gathering for Thanksgiving will have on the number says I h Me's Dr Ali Mokdad because of holiday delays in reporting and the roughly two weeks it takes for the virus to show up my best that some banks next Tuesday will know exactly what happened in Thanksgiving dump something increase of the miners, and then we can have a sound decision based on the reality that we see and we can decide how strict you want to be when it comes to the holidays, somebody that that somebody might Commendation Right now. Ryan is very simple. If you can't cancel it, 100 days by all means there. We can always celebrate another and later date and a safer away. This week is the first time I Jimmy has included a couple of vaccine scenarios in their projections, one for a fast roll out of the vaccine and another for rapid distribution for people at the highest risk like those over 65 Total U. S deaths are now projected at 539,000 by April 1st But with a combination of the vaccines mask wearing and distancing 66,000 of those lives could be saved 1240 of those here in Washington. So while the winter surge means a few difficult months ahead, doctor Moqtada is optimistic about the effect. Vaccines will have on future projections that many affected and I know we have blasted, administered them fast, so couple of months. Once they start rolling, it was innocently months. Many Americans will get vaccinated and can control the spiders and we can go back to our normal lives. As long as Americans are willing to take the back seat. That's a key piece of the puzzle. Least 60% with at least 70%, seen by health experts is what's needed to get us back to normal, Mokdad says. We're going in the wrong direction with the winter surge. But he says those vaccines, along with the new restrictions will put us on the right track. But in that brutal Gaza we would have a better spring. But it's not gonna help us in December and January and parts of February So we need to be vigilant until all of us are able to get the vaccine 80 90%, then we can't go back to our normal lives, which I expect Times by mid 2021. We are in a good position to open up our economy and I would be traveling that game. Dr Mokdad tells me. He also expects people will see the effects of all the Thanksgiving travel and he hopes will rethink their plans for Christmas in the December holidays, Getting someone what cases went up in. That is on a par example, California, Texas and Florida people use their mobility and what the more likely to wear a mask. So if you look at the Arizona one point of time 82% of people with him In the meantime, Mokdad says he believes the current restrictions in Washington and new ones in California and other states should at least continue through the holidays. And he reminds you that masks and distancing will need to continue. Even his vaccines are distributed. Ryan Harris. Come. Oh news.
