States in the West Face Water Cuts

"Residents in arizona. Nevada and across the border in mexico will have to cut their water consumption starting next year this the day after the extraordinary announcement by the us government of a first ever water shortage on the colorado river. Here's npr's kirk siegler. Some forty million people and countless farms rely on the colorado river and its tributaries. The shortage comes amidst a mega drought on the river basin. That's so far. Lasted twenty two years and as desert cities like las vegas and phoenix. Continue to grow at among the fastest rates in the us the entire reservoir system including lake mead with it's alarming white bathtub brings behind the hoover dam is now it just forty percent of capacity. Here's the department of interior secretary for water. Tanya trujillo we are seeing the effects of climate change in the colorado river basin through extended drought extreme temperatures extensive wildfires and in some places flooding landslides and now is the time to take action to respond to them. Arizona will be the hardest hit initially with these cuts. Losing almost a fifth of its entire river allotment for now california will not see any cuts because it's water rights are senior under century-old river laws. This shortage is monumental but it was also widely expected western. Water officials have been planning for this eventuality by ramping up conservation and water recycling. Tom bukowski directs arizona's department of water resources. This is a serious turn of events but not a crisis for now. Most cities won't see water. Supplies cut but farmers will in arizona. Thousands of acres of fields are expected to go fallow. Ironically the arid southwest is a huge producer of water intensive crops like cotton and alfalfa water law experts like marks quill lachey at the university of colorado say climate change will force this region to rethink how it uses its limited water. So many people rely on. We can't handle anymore stresses we're looking at a pretty dire situation right now on the river. School laci says climate. Change is drying out the soils and leading to rapid. Evaporation even a near average winters. Like this last one in the rocky mountains where snow melt feeds the river. That dry soils are acting like a sponge and they're soaking up a lot of water before that water can make it into the reservoirs. And that's likely to continue and federal water. Managers warned the shortages to will continue and probably get more severe. They'll reassess whether more cuts are needed in the next year.

Arizonans 65 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting next week

"This hour we took you live to the Arizona Department of Health Services Update on the covert 19 vaccine distribution. We had some technical difficulties, but we have those resolved and we want to bring you now. The rest of that briefing with all the details. Here's Dr Carol Chris, director of our State Health department. So now provide some updates on covert 19 vaccine and implementation of our program here in Arizona. One of the exciting updates that we made today. It is not this week that is not reflected on our chart. It will not be reflected until Tuesday, but Arizona made the decision that Arizonans 65 8 years of age and older are now prioritized. To be vaccinated against covert 19 in our prioritized phase one be along with our education and child care services and our protective services occupations, which includes law enforcement, corrections and fire. This recommendation was approved by the Arizona Vaccine and Antiviral Prioritization Advisory Committee, which is intended to protect those who are most at risk for severe outcomes due to Cove in 19. So we know that those there are over the age of 65 have all higher likelihood of hospitalization and death, and by be getting people vaccinated in several weeks from now we hope to reduce the strain on Arizona's hospitals. And you can find additional information on our website at easy Health. Doc Dub slash find vaccine. And on Tuesday, we will be updating that to provide clarity about which counties are going to be vaccinated the 65 to 74 year old age group at their vaccination sites. We also have counties that have moved into our prioritized. Phase one B and we have some that are fully in phase one B. So if you look at the map of Arizona, the counties that Aaron Black are still in phase one A. So does our healthcare providers and our long term care facility, residents and staff. When you look at our darker gray, that's the prioritized phase one be, so that's going to be the face that we just talked about. Currently. We are vaccinating age 75 older. Along with educators and child care and their support staff and our protective services occupations. When we increase to one be that also includes our Sent can keep our society functioning. That will be people who work in the transportation industry, including gas stations, shipping those types of things. The food industry, including agriculture. S so there's a large number of there's a large list of employees that are eligible for the one B category that is located on our website. Um But you can find out what what phase Each county is in, and we update this infographic daily, and you can link to it off of easy health. Doc Club slash find a vaccine. As of today, over 232,000 doses of vaccine have been administered statewide. So now we'll move into Arizona's vaccine allocation and administration. Over the next few weeks, A DHS will be working to increase access to vaccine increase the rate of vaccination into streamline communications. So as you look at the vaccine, I'm distribution overview. Arizona currently follows a local Allocator model for vaccine distribution. Our local part partners are the backbone of the vaccine program implementation and know their counties that are no they're partners and their counties the best so our federal partners every week provide our Arizona's allocation to the state. We divide that allocation of based on priorities to our local partners, who then will determine which providers in their local jurisdiction will receive that scene for that week. We collect all of those orders on Ben. We place Arizona's full order for that week, and then the federal government will ship those orders directly to the providers that we have ordered on behalf of as vaccine becomes more and more available. We will no longer need to use this local Allocator model and providers such as pharmacies, community health centers and physician's offices will be able just to directly order vaccine from the manufacturers. So this week we received additional first dose allocations of Fizer, which were distributed again. Toe America and Pima County's All 15 counties received Madonna doses, and so we continued to reserve given the unique storage requirements for our Fizer vaccine. We continue to reserve our Majority vaccine for our local or rural health departments. Um In addition to receiving that first those first doses of visor and Madonna vaccine we have received our second doses so that we can continue vaccinating those that I've already received their first US. And have had that either 21 or 28 Day waiting period. This is Dr Cara Chris State Health director, speaking at the Health Department's covert 19 vaccination rollout. Press briefing on Katie Our news 92 3 FM. So during the week of January, 18th Arizona will have been allocated 803,150 doses total. You can see how that's been allocated across the state. You can see at the bottom where we have prioritized our CDC Long term care facility partnership by providing them with the vaccine that they need to vaccinate our Our staff and residents that are long term care facilities. And then you can also see the number of doses that have gone to the state of Arizona. Um Not all of these doses of the 803 have arrived in Arizona. A number of these doses have been allocated to, um Have been ordered for our county partners and will arrive next week. They We anticipate that with the federal holiday. Usually they arrive Monday through Wednesday. We anticipate that they will arrive Tuesday through Friday of next week. So we continue to add additional sites for vaccine administration, So we have initial phase one and phase one B vaccination sites throughout the state. We have over 200 vaccination sites on our website. We also have activated the second phase of the CDC pharmacy partnership, which began the week of December. 27th. So we initially prioritized in phase one of that partnership are skilled nursing facilities, which are highest security, long term care facilities. Um As of the end of this week, all of those facilities will have had at least their first visit from CVS or Walgreen's, and they are scheduling appointments to start assisted living facilities throughout the state next week. So as additional state. Um uh, that scene becomes available, We will be adding additional providers we've had over 730 providers on bordered with a DHS and over 800 pharmacies statewide have enrolled in the CDC pharmacy program to provide in store vaccinations. We have talked on each week about the long term care partnership that CDC put together with our pharmacy partners. So our pharmacy partners code into the facility's and vaccinate the staff and residents of that facility. Um as of this week over 140 skilled nursing facilities scheduled to receive vaccinations, and they will begin vaccinating are assisted living and our group homes starting next week. We've got over 2000 facilities enrolled in the federal program where one of the states with the highest number of facilities enrolled, and our goal is to cover approximately 450,000 residents and staff over the next couple of months. So this is part of the infographic that we post each day on our website. If you look you can see by county what phase That county is currently vaccinating. The total vaccines and ministered along with the vaccination rate per 100,000. And so you can see statewide 232,000 vaccines have been administered. Um, This may not include some of the doses that are provided by our tribal Our federal partners is this is pulled out of the States Immunization registry. So to talk about updates and announcements of this week. On Monday, we had a soft launch of the State Farm Stadium Probate 19 vaccination site. So far we've administered over 20,000 vaccinations at that site, and we are averaging apart between 203 100 vaccinations per hour. We have booked tens of thousands of appointments through January 31st and anticipate opening up additional appointments. That will be between February 1st and February 28th. Those appointments will open up on January 19th at 9 A.m.. We're very excited. Because our partners have really made this endeavor possible. It's a whole community partnership. And again, we just want to thank the Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, the Arizona Cardinals and state from Stadium Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, The Catherine and Ben I. V Foundation. Arizona State University and Walgreens. All of these, these groups are playing a large role at the site on D have made this possible. Way also are very excited about the launch of our second state run of vaccinations site. This will be located at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. We are still looking to see how many doses we will have available for that. For that site, so the number of appointments will depend on the available vaccine again. We're partnering with the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs and Arizona State University to run this site. Arizona State University currently runs a testing a saliva based testing site at this location and so they will scale up to provide vaccination administration. Again. Registrations for appointments are going to open up Tuesday, January 19th at 9 A.m. for this site. We updated our easy health. Dr. Hobbes Flash find vaccine website with an interactive map. You can go onto the map. It has all of the current locations with vaccine, you can select a sight and a box will pop up that has information about that site and a link to their registration. So not all of them. Not all vaccine providers are utilizing the state's vaccine management system. Some providers air using their own appointments software, but we will link to them whenever we have that information so that it's one stop shopping when you go to our our map. We will continue to update this map with additional vaccination sites as they come. In a couple of other exciting announcements, we have been expanding access. So a DHS activated the CDC retail pharmacy program. This is going to add up to 100 pharmacy stores over the next few weeks. The first pharmacies to come on board in Arizona are gonna be fries, Safeway and Albertsons. And so those will be included on our sites as we get notified, which pharmacies which specific pharmacy locations will have that scene? But they will be on our website and will be another source for those that are eligible to receive vaccine to go get vaccinated when this program becomes fully activated, more than 800 pharmacies will have covert 19 vaccine available in Arizona. We currently have more than 200 vaccination sites on our website that have received vaccine and this includes 45 community health centers as well. So if you are eligible and you receive care at one of our community health centers You could check on our website to see if they have received vaccine. And again just another update on helping our Arizona hospitals. We have been recruiting nurses with a nursing staffing contract here in the state. That's been one of our most successful endeavors. We are very excited. The majority of the nurses are here. When they arrive. They will stay on site for eight weeks with an opportunity to extend that On gesso. As of last week. 348 nurses have started work. We anticipated almost 200 more arriving this week again that We don't necessarily count them until we've heard that they have Arrived in the state and are attending on boarding at their assigned hospital. But we continue to work with our staffing contract to get all of the nurses that we can here in.

"Getting super excited for the vaccine. It's like a party with the vaccine, but Where there's more and more vaccine stuff out there Joining us now somebody here locally that may have it all alternatives, potentially Creating it right here in the valley. You're kidding. CEO of its Akira and gonna Goss shock satirists. Principal scientist. Join us now. All right, So, gentlemen, what you got for us? Hey, guys, thanks for having us. Sure. We're super recourse, super excited to share what we're doing right here. So what we have is is an alternative to the vaccine that frankly, a lot of people aren't comfortable with. It's a nasal spray. It's going to make people able to go out to the ballgame going a plane, you know, get into a social situation. Go home and not Way loose cannon and the science behind it has been strong. Obviously, it's been proven, and we're taking it to another level. It's an entirely different approach to a vaccine because vaccines are You know, Frankly, they're usually developed over 10 years on bees, vaccines that we've been working against, and frankly, I hope that they work just for the record. We all hope they work because we want everybody get back. But the vaccine still has some questions. The beauty of what we've done is that it's based on her own anatomy. It is based on what we live in and live with is a human being. It's basic principles of protein and an amino acids. And it's not going to affect us the way that a vaccine would you know, in a normal situation under vaccine, so We're super excited, So it's a nasal spray and what you spray it, and it protects you from, um you know the You know the cove it and But what about if it gets through in your eye we always talk about. You know, we were joking a couple months ago. Well, they want us to know where goggles and no one's gonna wear goggles. So if it's a nasal spray, couldn't it still get in your eyes? Nobody looks in eyeshot that's regarded. Sure. Pardon my French. I apologize. Go ahead, Gun. Hey, guys. Thanks for having us on my name is Dr got struck? And I am the principal scientist for Sotiris Scientific and my scientific partner. My doctor are the Roy He recently published our findings with this and multiple reviewed journals and what we've built here is essentially a blocker. Stars Kobe to virus, which is covert 19, and it's taken the enable spray. The primary pathology that we see occurs primarily in the upper airway and into the lungs, and what kept tight is able to do is very simple. It prevents viral entry. By blocking the point of entry through the angiotensin to converting enzyme the actual point that this virus for whatever reason, utilizes to get into the human body on our our pre clinical data has shown that This is effective for up to 24 hours. So as our CEO Jim said, we way are very happy that the other individuals creating a vaccines are moving forward where we really see kept tied. Working and being useful is in that process of the vaccine distribution and then perhaps further on and you know, as Jim alluded to There are gonna be individuals that perhaps don't respond to the vaccine. This would be an option that would significantly and completely mitigate stars. Kobe to infection. Doctor got Jackson and Jim is well, like, how soon it How soon could you guys hang on? Hang on. How soon? Do you think that that you could start getting this thing tested in such a way where you could think about rolling it out? So right now we are working with our strategic partners at FDA with everyone else locally here. State Arizona Department Public health To begin and execute the required human phase one clinical trials We have moved through again a very robust amount of testing in pre clinical animal models, so it'll be a matter of weeks. Before we get that authorization or goal is to begin phase one human clinical trials and early spring 2021. Well, it is an amazing thing I pumped about this right here. Jim Keating, CEO of us A tear and Dr Gosh, aka Steer is principal scientists. Thanks so much for joining us today, you guys, this sounds awesome. And and it sounds something like something again. Another alternative to this nasty thing. We appreciate your time today. Thank you so much. We're gonna put it to bed. Okay? Do you think? Like it's interesting. It's so it's not a vaccines. Blocker. Yeah, so you spray it. And as sexual your nose it blocks the stuff from getting in. Kills it on sight. Kind of thing. Somebody sneeze into your eye. What happened? Yeah. So I'm just saying. I listen, I don't I don't know about all the science and all that kind of stuff. I think any of the scientific alternatives air. Good. Um, I didn't like the skepticism I heard from them about the vaccines. That's what I didn't like. It sounds like I don't know. I don't know. I got a bad feeling. I just got the feeling at all to work. I was rubbed the wrong way about what they were saying honestly. About the vaccines. I feel like they were. I was rubbed the wrong way. You mean honest? Yeah. I mean, you know, I look, I understand the theory, but I think people want a one and done I think people want a one and done but you know, and this could be great, but they're gonna want to go, You know, do you? Do you spray your nose every day, or do you just go and get the vaccine and then you're done? Did you get both right? Like if you're gonna go to a concert, Do you get both you get Do you get the vaccine, but as a double check, Do you get the spray? So that way, if you're you know you're out there to concert stuff, is it? Is it a double? You know, double whammy. Well, and I joked about it earlier that we were gonna you know, maybe I'll just do both. You probably would. I would probably do both still wear headgear, the whole thing Plastic, But if you're a scientist, you've gotta you know to Pooh Pooh. The vaccine, I think is irresponsible. And I think that's what I heard from them, and I didn't like it. I didn't like.

"You make way. Be back. I thought during the news, all the problems of the world all the problems with politics, it would all disappear. That Corona virus would just disappear. And I'm trying not to talk too much about it today because I'm sick and so much done with it. Is the first day In months where I did not go to the Arizona Department Public Health website to get the latest statistics of what the latest statistics tell me is what they've been telling me pretty much every day. Is that our chance of getting sick is pretty minimal. And our chance of dying if we get sick is pretty minimal. So why the heck am I walking around wearing masks all the time. Why, then Why the heck did we still Why did we have kids at home? I'm not allowed to go to school. The teachers don't want to go to school coming. Come on. This is nuts. I mean, the the You know, it's like I'm going to talk about hydrochloric ring a little later. You know, I mean, By the bureaucrats in the CDC or ignoring some or all of you all the new publish science and I don't understand why Why not? Your doctor thinks it's gonna help you should be able to do it. So, uh, Arizona State, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs. It is saying that That the president is conspiring to undermine your democracy. The timely delivery of ballots in Arizona. And ah The attorney general's office, Mark Brown of it, his One of his senior aides. I don't know why Brown of its didn't write her the nasty letter. Call her up. Call her out. She has absolutely no evidence of this. And ah You know, this is this is a political head in a sideshow. Basically orchestrated in part by Democratic operatives and the Postal Employees Union, which, by the way, has endorsed Joe Biden for president. And creating the impression that the post office isn't going to be able to deliver your ballots. And there's somehow Trump is trying to suppress the election. Well, I You know, I worry about the collusion between the Postal Workers Union and the Democratic political operatives of whether or not my mail ballot from my precinct, which usually votes Republican. He's going to get lost in the mail and end up like a previous caller said in the Santa Claus back How do I know when I vote by ballot that my ballot was counted? How do I know that? Is there a place I can go online to check that? I don't know. Maybe this guy Benny White was working for Ah, was running for county recorder, as opposed to the progressive activist is running against them won the primary. I'm not exactly you know, I don't I trust Benny. I'm not going. I don't think I'm going to trust her. I want to know if my bow is going to be counted. That I'm making a big deal because the postal Service 1st 1st of all. Since 2009. They've got like 31% less first class mail. 38% less periodicals and 6% less junk mail seems a junk mail. The only stuff that's holding steady force I thought was pretty much when I get my mail box, so it would seem to be that It might not need all the sorting equipment that they used to have, but that's certainly no problem in getting my mail. I know my bills arrive on time. Haven't lost any of my bills. Anyway, Let's let's go to the phones 880 K and S T. 805678 Ray, welcome to the program. They had. Good morning. I just want to let you know. I just I really love your passion about your thoughts on the mail in ballots and the Postal Service Union. The reason I'm calling. I just wanted to cheer a story. I'm sure you probably have listeners out there that are Union members are faithful to the union and I just wanted to share an experience that I had just Tio provide that information. I think the whole service union a lot like the FBI got 99% of the of the local union people that are good, hardworking people, But it said, you know 5 10%. That are unethical, and they don't play by the rules. I've dealt with the unions, You know, it's the local and national level for many, many years, the local people have been great, never, ever having issues with. Um, however. Point I wanted to make about three years ago, I was involved in a small team that developed process over three year period. It would save the pulse of service over $880 million a year. Wow. And per postal regulations where there was going to be these large changes. Nobody was going to lose their job. But it was just a change in process so we had involved the union and every step of the process. So for three years we had union representatives from the national level, participate in the meetings after the three year period. We decided the process was ready to roll out right. Also headquarter executive said, Hey, this is great. They sang off on it. Human research that signed off on it. Labor relations signed off on it. And the National Union signed off on it. Two weeks later, we go out to implement the process and guess what happened. National Union send out information to all the shops stores in every post office that the process the management was trying to implement. You know, I have not been approved by the union that they had not been involved in any of the meetings and they were not to cooperate with the implementation process, so they just they just lied. Yes. Wow. Yep, they did. And so to your point Even though it like I said, I've got a lot of respect for the union people local level that I deal with. But if they get something from headquarters of the National Headquarters union that said, Hey, we want you to do this. They're going to do what they're told. Oh, yeah, Well, you know, it's interesting. You know all the news articles around the country, you know where the local media has gone down and they say, Well, you know, they take their closing up this mailbox or they're moving this males or they're dismantling this mail sorting machine. It's going to impact It's Donald Trump tryingto Kill your Vote Bob, blah, blah, blah, blah. The source of all those articles, and it doesn't matter what community you go to is the union guy the union guys, So it's a coordinated political hit between the Union and Democratic Party operatives to create the impression to make a negative thing on Trump the news media has bought into it, hook line and sinker. And, and I'm reading today that Even the U. S. Senators on our side are trying to work out a bill and they got like, I think $10 billion in there for the post office. It's all about money, but it was the post office is going to be able to deliver those ballots. They delivering out what I'm more concerned about. Is the potential collusion. Between The union and the operatives because thie operatives can they know If the votes come from this precinct, they're going to go 60 40 for Trump or, you know 60 40 for Biden. I'm concerned about those absentee ballots Disappearance. Soon, you know, Deep six. And and I I have no way of knowing or having any ability to know that my ballot if I voted by mail was actually counted. I agree. Like I said, You know, the experience I had with the union of the local level here in Tucson and Phoenix and other places I worked at, you know, it was fantastic, but The last point I want to make right before I left the headquarters area. I was involved in a and an arbitration and as in any other arbitration, you know you're basically sworn in and, you know, swear that you're going to tell the truth. Well, we had the national people there was three of us went up testified and they just you know, outright lied about what? You know what had happened in this case. So after the hearing, I grabbed the national business agent. I said, Hey, You know what you doing? I said what you said was not true. You guys wide and he just smiled at me. He said anything to win Ray. Anything to win. Well, that said it all..

Arizona seeing highest number of new coronavirus cases per capita

"Joining now from where things stand is to reject director for the Arizona Public Health. Association will humble. He's also the former director of the Arizona Department of Health Services and I know that. We've got data reportings very lumpy, and we're coming off a holiday weekend, and so the picture is not as clear on this Tuesday, as it normally would, because of those reporting delays, but this jumped out to me as of today Arizona not the cove infections per capita of any state, but also the most of any state has ever had. We hit five hundred and twenty eight per million, new. York topped out at five nine on April tenth. What what does it look like to you in Arizona, right now. That really says it all, doesn't it? I mean everybody knows what happened in New York and now it's happening in Arizona and who would have thought that it would happen in a state like Arizona but his shows you that the policy decisions that you're elected. Officials make have real life consequences and the decisions, the decisions in May and early June or lack of decisions are really what set in the cascade of events that ended up where we are today with a graph just saw. We're also seeing an inflection point in deaths in Arizona. We saw it also just I just saw about an hour ago. I think Texas reported its highest fatality level. I'm a very long time today. There's been this lag. Obviously between cases and battalions were catching more cases. There's a hope that fatalities won't be as high right now. What are you seeing the fatality data? Where do you think this is going? So. There's a couple of things that may be moderating the death rate here in Arizona. Number one is that the new cases are really exploding in twenty and thirty year old people who are. Less likely to end up in an ICU bed, and less likely to die. It happens, but it's less likely the other thing is that clinicians are getting better at treating people for covid. Nineteen at the beginning was just supportive care now there's a couple of medications that can improve the course of the illness, so as physicians learn a little bit more about how to treat illness I think that may be working in our favor a little bit and finally. I I'm hoping that this also represents an improvement in infection control within assisted living and skilled nursing facilities I. Don't know that for a fact. I do know that they are trying harder than they were and personal. Protective equipment is more available, but really there's no substitute for weekly testing of staff that work in those facilities. I don't think that that's happening. In terms of testing seeing, it's really maddening. We're seeing bottlenecks again, and you're seeing that in that positivity rate going up, and it's upright now. It's almost thirty percent I think in Arizona I mean the the recommendation the are you want the positivity right below three percent, which basically shows that you're testing enough? The MARICOPA county reported Covid, nineteen positivity rate of twenty eight point eight percent. This is the Phoenix Mayor tweeting. We've seen testing sites where people waited for more than eight hours in one hundred and ten degree heat to get tested. This is unacceptable. Arezzo needs more testing and context racing to slow the spread. This seems like a major major and acute failure right now as as the state tries to get a hold of this. positivity rate is off the charts, and as you said, it needs to be ten times lower than it is right now. We're at twenty five percent positive. The next highest state I think is Texas and Florida. They're in the the teens, so we're much higher that we need to be on that regard. The other thing is that our turnaround time on these tests is really pretty bad like we're looking at turnaround times between getting A. A sample collected from a patient and getting those results back from the lab of seven eight nine, even fourteen days, and what that means. Is that your contact tracing capacity? Your contact tracers can't do their job because by the time they get the data. The patient has already either gone back to work infected their roommates or co workers, and and it doesn't matter how good contact tracing capacity is if you're getting the results that late. It's going to be ineffective at Saint. We've gotta just get more tests, but faster testing. You know months ago. There's a lot of debate about the Swedish model Sweden was one of the few countries that had had you know. Had the virus didn't shutdown did close some things here? There? Make some efforts, and there was some question about. Can you avoid the worse consequences both economically and also of sort of social and physical and emotional health of lockdowns, and I your piece today basing no, it's not it's a cautionary tale. It was sort of a failed experiment. It does seem to me. We're headed towards the sun belt. Sweden experiment in the US I mean governor Ducey does seem reluctant to take any more steps and he has. We're just GONNA. Find out how bad it can get back. I Isaac, we adopted the Swedish model right around Memorial Day to be honest with. I've said that publicly that I think what we're really doing is going down the Swedish road and. And what we see is we can learn. The previous segment you talked about learning for mothers. You know I this is an example where we could have learned from others and I hope other people learn from us because this experiment isn't going well.
