"Presented by the Salvation army. New COVID cases in the U.S. rise to the highest levels on record, by Kathleen futi, Associated Press, Chicago. More than a year after the vaccine was rolled out, new cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. have soared to their highest level on record at over 265,000 per day on average. A surge driven largely by the highly contagious variant. New cases per day have more than doubled over the past two weeks, eclipsing the old mark of 250,000 set in mid January, according to data kept by Johns Hopkins University. The fast spreading mutant version of the virus has cast a pall over Christmas and new years, forcing communities to scale back or call off their festivities just weeks after it seemed as if Americans were about to enjoy an almost normal holiday season. Thousands of flights have been canceled amid staffing shortages blamed on the virus. Doctor Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. infectious disease expert, said Wednesday that there is no need to cancel small home gatherings among vaccinated and boosted family and friends. But if your plans are to go to a 40 to 50 person New Year's Eve party with all the bells and whistles and everybody hugging and kissing and wishing each other a happy new year, I would strongly recommend that this year we not do that, he said. The picture is grim elsewhere around the world, especially in Europe with World Health Organization chief Tedros adenomatous, saying he is worried about combining with the delta variant to produce a tsunami of cases. That, he said, will put immense pressure on exhausted health workers and health systems on the brink of collapse. The number of Americans now in the hospital with COVID-19 is running at around 60,000 or about half the figure seen in January, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. While hospitalizations sometimes lagged behind cases, the hospital figures may reflect both the protection conferred by the vaccine and the possibility that is not making people as sick as previous versions. COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. have climbed over the past two weeks from an average of 1200 per day to around 1500. Public health experts will be closely watching the numbers in the coming week for indications of the vaccines effectiveness and preventing serious illness, keeping people out of the hospital and relieving strain on exhausted healthcare workers said bob bed narciss a Professor of global health and epidemiology at Emory university. CDC data already suggests that the unvaccinated are hospitalized at much higher rates than those who have gotten inoculated, even if the effectiveness of the shots decreases over time, he said. If we're able to weather this surge with, hopefully, minimal disruptions to the overall healthcare system, that is a place where vaccines are really showing their worth, but narcis said. It's highly unlikely that hospitalization numbers will ever rise to their previous peak, said amesh adalja, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins center for health security at the Bloomberg school public health. Vaccines and treatments developed since last year have made it easier to curb the spread of the virus and minimize serious effects among people with breakthrough infections. It's going to take some time for people to get attuned to the fact that cases don't matter the same way they did in the past, a dolce said. We have a lot of defense against it. But even with fewer people hospitalized, compared with past surges, the virus can wreak havoc on hospitals and healthcare workers. He added. In a way, those hospitalizations are worse because they're all preventable, he said. Several European countries, including France, Greece, Britain, and Spain also reported record case counts this week, prompting a ban on music at new year's celebrations in Greece and a renewed push to encourage vaccination by French authorities. WHO reported that new COVID-19 cases worldwide increased 11% last week from the week before, with nearly 4.99 million recorded December 20th through the 26th. But the UN health agency also noted a decline in cases in South Africa, where omer was first detected just over a month ago. End of the year with hope, now more than ever, families living in poverty are facing fears. They're afraid of hunger, afraid of eviction, but they're not afraid of hard work, working through the fear to find a way forward, your donation to the Salvation army helps their hopes outpace their fears, make a 2021.

John Michael. Thank you. It is now 6 20 on Wall Street, where live for the Bloomberg Interactive Brokers Studios. This is Bloomberg Daybreak. Vaccines are likely to begin rolling out in the U. S before the end of December. This is, according to the surgeon General Jerome Adams at Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease specialists. Joining us this morning with Maurin. His take Dr Romesh Adult Ji at the professor of chance at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School. Public Health does that timeline before the end of the year. Sound realistic to you? It does sound realistic, but with one caveat that these are vaccines not put the general public but perfect scenes for health care workers and maybe some high risk individuals because you have to remember. That this vaccine is going to be available in batches and the first match. Is there going to be prioritized to those groups. So for the general public, they're still looking well into 2021. In the best case scenario, this sort of tangential to that there was a report on 60 minutes. I don't know if you saw it. It was also talking about a poll in which a lot of health care workers were somewhat reluctant to take, at least in the initial phases of vaccine. I found that Do you find that curious? It is curious, but to me, it's not completely surprising. We saw similar sentiment during 2009 H one n one pandemic where health care workers were a little bit reticent to take the vaccine. No, I'm health care worker. I took care of covert patients over the weekend. I'm somebody who will be first in line if I'm allowed to be first in line. I know that there's some my colleagues who who have concerns. Maybe because of the fact that this is a new vaccine and the vaccine hesitancy movement has really made inroads into people's minds and thinking, And they tend to doubt things that are new. And that's likely something that even reflected in health care workers, which is unfortunate because we are some of the hardest hit with this virus and people that need to be able to kind of beat man the barricades to take care of all of these patients that we were having. We've heard about the parameters that have been set in the studies does a vaccines. True efficacy really become established once it's out in the general public? It does. So when you look at the efficacy in a clinical trial, we know that it's going to fall when you actually put it into the general population because the general population is very different tribal populations. And we know that not everybody may come back for the second dose. People may get their dates a little bit wrong is going to be differences with trying to supply the vaccine based on its storage requirements. All that's going to bring down the effectiveness so We often see a step down when you get into effectiveness. So the higher the efficacy police were starting from a very high point, But we don't you know you don't expect it. T O actually reach those trial conditions when you Apply it to the general population outside of Ah controlled randomized control trial, which is very heavily, um, watched and and a lot of vigilant eyes on how the trial was conducted versus what happens in the general public. Doctor do we have a sense of the point at which enough of us have had a shot to halt the spread of covert 19? First of all, it's gonna be two shots, not one shot, So one shot's not going to be enough. Everybody has. We have to get as many people as we can to get two shots to get the effectiveness of the vaccine to a level that protected Probably if you think about it, you know, Ideally you probably want 70 or 80% of the population to get it. But that's probably an overestimate because that assumes that the population is homogeneous. Everybody has the same risk of acquiring a spreading the virus, and that's not true. Probably lower than that. We'll start to see benefits, Remember? The vaccine is being targeted primarily high risk individuals first, so that's not so much about spread but much more about keeping them out of the hospital. So that's the first benefits and look for and if we can get a high enough uptake of the vaccine in Populations that are at risk for hospitalization. You'll see pressure lift off of hospitals, and I think that will change the whole risk perception of this virus. If it's not something that's landing. People in the hospital in the hospital aren't going into crisis. Well, many of us were celebrating Thanksgiving. We're also giving thanks for health care workers like yourself. You were treating patients.

You're listening to Bloomberg markets with Bonnie Quinn and Poles Weenie on Bloomberg Radio. All right, let's go straight to Dr Image Adult of Johns Hopkins University. Fantastic conversation, always with Dr Adult. Let's begin with the lily antibody drug Doctor Golda after yesterday's fight his visor announcement. What do we make of the ramp up off positive announcements? I think this is all a testament to the fact that when we actually start to try and best in technological solutions to this infectious disease problems, it will bear fruit, and I think this is a lesson for other infectious disease threats. And we will get through this covert 19 pandemic its going to still take some time with devising with even with the five and used the little drug T get through this winter, which is going to be rough in the Northern Hemisphere. And but But there is sort of a light at the end of the tunnel coming and we are getting getting to a point where we have much many more tools to fight this virus. We get in the beginning. Doctor. Doctor, give us you talk about this. And then President Biden called it a. You know, a long, dark winter coming up and we're seeing the numbers just kind of go through the roof set new records. Unfortunately. You know, just from the New York perspective, last March and April seem to take, you know a month or so to start to really bend that curve. Do you think there's a simple a similar scenario here or is something different about this second slash third wave? I think there's something different about this third surge because there's a lot of Transmission that's going on with people's small gatherings. And I think this definitely has a lot to do with pandemic fatigue, which wasn't there during the first search, because there that was people were scared. It was a new virus. 2nd 3rd was really bars and restaurants in that type of activity, which this one third Serge is a little bit different epidemiologically, so it's going to be much harder to control, so I don't know that we'll bend occur if curve in all of these places around the country that are that are seeing surges. It's just It's very difficult now to get people to To comply that haven't complied. I really fear for the worst in some places where their hospitals are already under strapped. You know the President elect Joe Biden. He's trying to do something, but he's limited on what he can actually do. Can he have an impact? I mean, he obviously can't do anything at the federal level. I do think he could have an impact just by bringing the moral authority of the presidency, which he's going to assume in several weeks, as well as the team he's assembled, which constitute some of the best minds in the field that could start to issue guidance and start to speak to the American public. And maybe with that kind of clear messaging with a single voice without any of the mixed messaging, the evasions and the misinformation. You may see Americans actually start to accept this information and be able to modify their activities in a way that decreases the spread of the virus. And it's also important for him to articulate how he turns this plan into Actionable items that state and local health departments at hospitals are going to use that people know what what to expect to know what's coming in January. So, doctor we had that good news from Pfizer yesterday about their vaccine. Of course, there are other Groups out there. Moderna ahs. Well, how do you think this is going all play out as we get into 2021? Maybe the mid part of the year. Are there going to be a number of vaccine choices for Consumers. Will doctors prescribe different vaccines for different people? How do you think that will play out? And ideally, I hope that's the case that we have so many vaccines that we have a choice and and what might happen is that you have more than one vaccine, get emergency use approval and you're pulling all those resources together to vaccinate the country and you just have to keep track of who gets what vaccine which could be logistically challenging, but I think we would be Happy to be in a position where we have to have. That is our problem. The other thing is is that some of these vaccines may do better in different subgroups. So we may have targeted vaccines for different groups just like we do for influenza, where we give certain types of flu vaccines to the elderly population and other types to other populations, So that would be Something I would expect to see. So it's important that we continue the research and development in the clinical trials on all of the other candidates, because I don't think this is going to be a one vaccine solution. We're likely going to have many different vaccines and Vaccine We get in a couple of years for Corona virus, maybe something completely different than what we're seeing now in the clinical trials. If you don't mind talks a little bit about Europe right now, because we're seeing France coming very, very close to I C u capacity that is the whole entirety of France. It's already above 92%. Capacity. We will have a major problem is well in Denmark with Mick, explain this to us for those who haven't been following this story. Well, you have to remember that many of these European countries what they relied on wass and economic shutdown locked down type of approach without actually investing in the public health infrastructure needed. To think about to be able to deal with the cases that would inevitably occur once you started to get people socially in directing. I think that there is this kind of magical thinking that this virus could just go away with you. With having people social distance for a period of time. And that's not the case the virus has established itself in the human population has a wide spectrum of illnesses, many mile case that never get big diagnosis. So when you when you lift the shutdown when you lift the lock down if you don't have the ability to test Traci nicely If you haven't expanded hospital capacity, you're going to go right back to where you were nowhere near herd immunity for this and it's It's this is AH lesson that if you don't invest In the public health infrastructure. You will continue to make the same mistake over and over again and not have any kind of sustainable approach to controlling this virus. Doctor, you're part of one of the biggest the most well respected medical facilities in the world. Give us a sense of how the rank and file people that doctors, the nurses, the orderly What's the morale of those people right now? As they face what again might be a very long winter? Well, it varies. And I do think that talking to my colleagues all around the country that this is something that everybody is driving because we know inevitably that the cases are going to increase. We're already seeing it happened. In many parts of the country that that hospitals now have more covert patients than they ever had before outside of the New York area, and we were worried about it, because now there's a lot of complacency in the public. And people in the community don't seem to care what's happening in their own hospital. So I do think that that is demoralizing to realize that people They They may clap for us, and they may call us heroes. But if they're not actually taking the actions that are not going to put us in harm's way, they're not going to put our hospitals into crisis. The other medical care can be rendered. It really is all empty Applause. Yeah, I mean, it's it's it's. It's a desperate situation and also in places like nursing homes where you know the staffing levels have gone down after all of these people worked so hard to shepherd. They're patients through this or, you know, two were Scylla. Many patients died. And then you know, because these nursing homes couldn't take in new patients that they didn't have money and staff.

So Him being released home to the White House is a little bit different from your eye being released home from the hospital, so he'll be getting some intensive care, and he'll be getting some good monitoring over the next few days to make sure that I bet he keeps that progression of feeling better and that symptoms don't change for the worse When you mentioned the kind of medical care the president received, not just at the White House now, but Walter Reed.

But let's talk about a nice and family down in South Carolina just outside Charleston. And I know the numbers have been tough in terms of the virus. Well, the number is South Carolina is still struggling as you are tracking around the country who we're seeing different searches different improvements in places and it really kind of boils down to how seriously people are taking public health measures. And unfortunately, just like variations in food from the south to the north. We're also seeing variations in the acceptance of mask wearing the care with social distancing. And so that's what's going to keep this virus alive and well around the country is If we get complacent on and put our guard down if it will return. Well, you know, just a follow. I mean, you are so involved in time in terms of, you know, understanding, health and cities and communities. You know, Jason and I ke that there's you know, one thing you wear a mask. That's one thing we see. Repeat over and over. But there's also that idea of You know, taking care of your community? I mean, this is largely with this virus is about that's why you wear a mask. It is. I mean, you know, we're hoping for vaccines were looking for other kinds of therapeutics. But the really important element is even if those come on board The absolute best thing we could do for our families and for our neighbors, and our entire kind of economic tribe ability is to really practiced these basics in public health. It may not be sexy, but that's actually what's going to make the biggest biggest difference. And if we all did this together Oh, and did it. You know universally, we could probably really dampen this down, Get ready for a tough winter and do much better. I worry so much about our economy that if we if we focus in on just stemming and suppressing this virus by Community measures. It's what's really going to help open up our ability for strong, healthy commerce down the road. So Dr Hearn talked to us about the public health system because you know, Carol and I have talked on this program a lot about this notion that The virus has served to accelerate so many things for good and bad. It is forced us to deal with some things that maybe we didn't want to deal with And now we have to And especially when you parrot with what we've seen in terms of a really reckoning around systemic racism and some of the deep, deep inequalities of the great chasms that we've seen and Having spent a lot of time in South Carolina, having grown up in the south. I know that a lot of that is so apparent there in your state, even in Charleston. What do we need to do at this moment where we do have something of an opportunity to start to close that gap when it comes to public health? Well, it's a it's a brilliant question is the exact one that we need to focus on. So just like, you know, a healthy company needs good roads that needs good education system so that Workforce, eyes ready and prepared for the job. We actually need to have that same kind of capacity in our public health system. These are and the good thing of the pandemic its spring in alive. You need to have at the genealogist. You need to have labs. This is every day. It's not just when of virus is spreading. But we use those tools all the time to keep us healthy and well and actually..

"We're really excited. Tio have Michael Jordan join a draft Kings teams up with Michael Jordan. All this and more coming up in the next hour of Bloomberg best. You know, health officials are increasingly worried about the link between colleges and universities. In the spread of covered 19 and Bloomberg's Francine Laquan Kaylie Lines had a chance to ask Lauren sour about it. She's assistant professor of emergency medicine at Johns Hopkins. Let's listen in. We're seeing that there is a correlation, and I think a lot of people are trying to study just how strong that effective on school's re opening in local clusters, particularly when you think of schools with older Children and with adults, so colleges, universities high school things like that. One of the biggest challenges is making sure that the teachers and the family members are safe. And so we don't want schools to be driving clusters in Towns and communities where they've gotten the virus under control. So this is particularly challenging when you have a police like a university or college that's bringing people from other states, Other communities That may have large outbreaks. And so we're seeing these outbreaks pop up in many places where schools are not taking the virtual approach. So what does that mean? Learning? I mean, if you're you know to keep, I guess citizens safe. You need to close restaurants and bars. But, you know, keep the schools open so that you don't have to close anything. Everything at once were cases to really search. Yeah. I mean, it sort of seems like in the United States who has chosen to keep bars and restaurants open over to over being able to open our schools. And so when the first step to being able to open schools safely is the clothes is to stop community transmission, so that When you have to do the contact tracing associated with small clusters of outbreaks or even single cases in the schools that you can actually track where the infections are coming from and track where the transmission is coming and going. And that's really hard to do when you have ongoing community transmission, and we do know that these bars and restaurants are part of what's driving community transmission. So you know the idea is that you limit the activities that don't need to happen going out to bars going out to restaurants, and then it's safer to open the school's Lauren, where I am here in New York. I had to wear sweater toe work. Summer has definitely over fall is coming. What happens when a people can't spend as much time outdoors and have to go indoors and be that collides with the regular flu season. Yeah, we're really concerned about that sort of intersection towards the end of fall. You know, you hope that you that everyone can sort of stay outside and be outside for as long as possible. But it has impact in a lot of places. So you're gonna have mixing of people in smaller spaces consigned spaces where they may have gone outside. If they don't limit their activity, then they're just gonna do those activities inside. Same with bars and restaurants. So if people can't go to bars and restaurants, but they're allowed to remain open and they can't set outside. Perhaps we'll sit inside. We have seen that in some places that have flu early, like in Australia, the cases they're lower, which is great to see. It means a lot of the activities that we're doing for Corona virus are Helping to sort of called the spread of flu as well, and we would expect that, to an extent. I think we're hoping that happens here, too, that we have a very light flu season because the challenge was having flu season Corona virus First, We don't know that co infection may cause disease It may cause people to get thicker. But also it's really hard to differentiate on a quick screen in the emergency department, for example, between Corona virus symptoms and flu symptoms, so we want to keep people out of the hospital who have flu we wanted, you know, keep those eyes open for Corona virus cases and keep people separated as well. I just quickly want to touch on treatment. The debate over a convalescent plasma and its efficacy, continuing to rage at the Weighing in saying there's no evidence to prove that it actually works. What do we know? And what don't we know at this point, so common has been used in a lot of approaches to a lot of different seasons. So I think we can say we know it's relatively safe even in cold and we've seen that the safety data look pretty good. We Don't know much about a efficacy. We're still learning a lot. One of the challenges that moving forward with the approach that happen now is, it may diminish the people who are willing to sign up for clinical trials. So then we then it becomes limited how much we can actually learn about efficacy. And so you don't want to just do something just because it's safe. You want to take Carlos and plasma only it's also effective in in treating, and Karen Corona virus. And in the current situation, we've had several negative studies that haven't showed that efficacy that it's you know that it's working yet, and I have my hope is that people continue down the path of doing the randomized control trials doing that rigorous clinical study. So that we don't just rely on observational data, which can be fraught with different biases, Different problems, study design, and that sort of retrospective look back at the data can be problematic when you're making those assessments about how effective it really wass Lauren, who will have the formula for a vaccine that will be easy access and distribute to go first. How far away are we from the in the U. S. Here. We have two studies one by modern and one by five. Bio tech. You know the goal of general somewhere around 30,000 participants. There's been talk of stopping those early. But the key is to get to that point where we've had enough cooling infections in that study population that we can understand the efficacy of the virus, and some people are predicting that we'll have one by the end of the year. Lately less optimistic. I think sometime next year we can see will probably see some really good vaccine data that allows us to push forward. There's work being done on who gets it right. So that's going to be the next big hurdle is how do we prioritize? That that vaccine that works really well, that was Laurence, our assistant professor of emergency medicine at Johns Hopkins.

"You just heard him talk mad. Dr. Jason Farley, professor of nursing at John Hopkins, Remember School of public health. So let's continue that conversation now with Dr Eric Toner, a senior scholar at John Hopkins Center for Health Security at the Bloomberg School of Public Health. As a disclaimer, I should point out Bloomberg School Public Health, supported by Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies. So we kind of got the lay of the land there which the different types of vaccines in which might come first. And I guess my bigger question to you is when something does get viable. How should that be talked about in the medical community? When just in the last few weeks, it seems like vaccine proposals have become so politicized. What does the doctor community do about that? Well, I think the doctor community needs Tio. Try their very best nor political noise. And focus on the facts. Focus on the science. What the what of the trials? Tell us, Um what is the data show? It's really important. It's important tohave vaccine quickly, of course. It's even more important in this right. And to have a vaccine that we have confidence in that we know is effective and that we know is safe. Bobby. And there's been some talk in the last few days. Maybe we can cut the phase three trials short is showing good response. I would caution against that. I think we need to go all the way through the trials. Quickly to be assured of their safety profiles of these vaccines. So You know, I think a heaven vaccine this fall is is unrealistic. And if we're working, that would be a mistake. Well, so much politics have entered into this doctor Toner. How much do you worry about that and with politics? I would also ask. The question about the public perception of safety and efficacy. It feels like those things go hand in hand. No, You're absolutely right. You know, it's not just whether the vaccine is safe and effective. It's whether or not people Feel like it's safe and effective vaccine does no good if people want to take it. And you know, there's there's a lot of distrust. Now. Just focused on on elected officials. Distrust in in the scientific community discussed the distrust medicine to distrust in authority in general. So, you know, building trust being transparent. And really talking about how we know that it's effective and safe. I think is the most important thing that we can D'oh So going forward, saying the next you know, couple weeks as people really return to work, it's after Labor Day. What are some of the key data points or dates that you're gonna be watching to check some boxes? I think the important thing to watch is how the phase three trials for going, Um, how many patients there in rolling at him, and when we get intermittent data reports Really look at those carefully. So I think there's there's no Something else to look at. Except the day the data that comes out and on DH, look at that carefully. All right. Well, we really appreciate your time that in of your colleagues your time and that of your colleagues, Thank you so much. Dr. Eric Toner, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security at the Bloomberg School of Public Health. And, as Alex said, Of course, a Bloomberg school public Health Supported by Mike Bloomberg founder Bloomberg Philanthropies, and Bloomberg LP, the parent company of this radio station, and we rely heavily on them as do many people. You know, when you look at sort of The virus tracking the cases. So much of that good information does come from our friends down at Johns Hopkins and you know, I'll just underscores something that he said which Listen, it's 2020. So we have to say it.
