Biden names diverse economic team with four women in top roles to help build recovery
"Group that features four women in top roles, including former Federal Reserve Board chair Janet Yellen as his choice for Treasury secretary. Reporter Jim Tankersley of The New York Times has been following these developments closely. He covers economics for the paper, and he's also the author of the recent book, The Riches of this Land. Jim Tankersley. Thanks so much for being with us again. What do these choices as a group tell you about Joe Biden's priorities What he may do once he takes office. Well, thanks so much for having me Judy. This is a group that is really focused on workers and on labor and maybe one of the most of union friendly groups of top economic advisers. We've seen in the White House in a long time and in particular for policy right out of the gate. It's a group that's going to be very committed on the idea of trying to get the economy up and running as fast as it can as quickly as possible in order to boost worker wages. And it's gonna be not at all shy about pushing additional deficit spending by the federal government in order to get there. And specifically with regard to covert relief, Covad economic relief. Can you tell anything from looking at this group? But what what might happen? Yeah, They've been very clear a number of them from Janet Yellen, the Neera tanden on down on these pics about the sorts of things that need to be done to help. People and businesses and state local governments survived. This pandemic on DAT includes more direct aid tol division ALS. It includes more help for small businesses and in particular age of states and local governments who have big budget holes, But also things like passing pandemic paid leave, You know a program to give family and paid leave. The workers who are on the front lines of code in particular, and I think that you will see all of those policies pushed early on by the biting teeth. So let's talk specifics. Janet Yellin at Treasury, the first woman to hold that job as we were saying, what do we know? Based on her record? What to expect from her. Janet Yellen is a labor economist by training on someone who really pushed the Federal Reserve when she was the chairman of the reserve to keep interest rates low for a long time in order to stoke growth, and I think we'll see more of that out of her hear more of a focus on inequality and unworkable is and you know another thing that she's focused on a lot in the last couple of years is on Tearing down the barriers of discrimination in the economy to help women in particular succeed, and I think you'll see her focus on that as well. It's it's been a big deal for her in the economics profession, but it's something that she is talked a lot about having enormous consequences for the broader economy. And then Cecilia Rouse, who President elect Biden Has said he wants to head his council of Economic Advisers. Not as well, a known name as the others. But so what should we know about her? She'll if she's confirmed, should be the first black economist ahead the Council of Economic Advisers she was on the council under President Barack Obama. She's also a labor economist, ah, real expert in a variety of things having to do with labor and education, and just like Jenna Galan has, as focused a lot of academic work on the effects of discrimination. S O. There are some common themes here with the team. And then there is Tol, the Office of Management and Budget. Neera Tanden, who has been around she's someone who I think is familiar. Too many who watch what's going on in Washington. What do what do we look for? From her? Near attended, runs the center for American Progress, which is a liberal think tank, and she has been on adviser to Hillary Clinton. She's been around Washington for a long time. She is someone who has really pushed on a variety of sort of liberal policy agenda items that is more of a political player than the other two. But I think with Neera Tanden, you will see Ah, focus in the Ownby. If she's confirmed on things like climate change healthcare on you on sort of Not shying away again from running budget deficits. Tosto growth, which is you know a real, I think departure from what many progressives thought they might be getting if I hadn't had appointed someone who was more of a moderate deficit, longer term deficit Hawk Democrat to that position. And Jim. What about with regard to Senate confirmation? These three positions we've been talking about all require Senate confirmation. What is expected for each one of them for yelling for rouse and for Tanda. Well, I think Janet Yellen appears likely to be confirmed. Based on the comments that we've seen in the last 24 hours from Republican senators. She's someone who has been confirmed by the Senate before. So is this is the arrest who I think is like that he converted also in less Republicans find some things in her academic work that they really object to Neera Tanden again as a more political player and someone who's Twitter feed has really offended. A lot of Republican senators may face more opposition and that was signaled by Republican senators in the last day that they don't like that she has taken after Republicans in public comments and so that that maybe get hard for them to confirm her. A lot will depend on whether Democrats control the senator Republicans do after the runoff elections that Georgia in January. And one other thing, Jim. I mean, people look to see the differences between this team and the Trump economic team. Pretty significant difference. Sure, there's just a big difference in how they approach the economy. The Trump team came in with a real focus on how do they sperm or business investment of the economy? How can they do more by taking away regulations by cutting taxes to make businesses happier and get them to spend more money on investments of this team is much more focused on workers. How do they support workers? How do they change regulations or even bolster them? To make it easier for people to work and to make that work pay off with higher wages, so it's just completely different angle at looking at the economy and very different policies that will result Him.

"Dire dire warnings warnings advising advising against against Thanksgiving Thanksgiving gatherings. gatherings. We We also also saw saw record record breaking breaking travel, travel, and and today we expect to break another record as millions of Americans are making their way home.

It is the images of these shocking lines across the country. Americans lined up for food. With the vaccine not widely available until next year. Businesses remain shuttered and more than 20 million people are claiming unemployment benefits. Dr Anthony Fauci is standing by, but first we wanted to take a closer look. There's critical moment and those struggling in the long shadow of the pandemic. We still have months of This battle ahead of US President elect Joe Biden, warning that the fight against Cove it is far from over. We have to try to slow the growth of this farmers. We all went to the doctors and the nurses and other frontline workers. It's about 2 30 in the morning. I just got home from work last March, when this all began, we talked to emergency room. Doctor Aaron Beaumont. All of the sudden we just got overwhelmed Ambulance after ambulance with Hypoxic patients people in respiratory distress. Dr. Beaumont, who works in the Boston area, has grown tragically used to the toll of this pandemic, but is bracing for a post holiday crush of patients at one of the constants that we've had throughout this pandemic since the beginning. Is the component of stress and fear that the health care workers in the front line providers are experiencing every single day or tired of this. We're exhausted, but the pandemic strange extend far beyond the halls of hospitals, months of economic hardship marking the start of the holiday season. That need evident across the country. Cars backed up for miles, people standing in line for hours, even in the rain just to get food. food. You You know, know, I'm I'm thinking thinking he's he's trying trying to to provide provide for for my my family family right right now now Networking Networking hunger hunger in in this this country country at at a a new new high high one one out out of of every every eight eight Americans say they sometimes don't have enough food to eat.

I've never witnessed the system being more strange than it is right now just miles from my own home in Virginia Long lines here where they've seen a 45% increase in the family's coming for food executive director Charlie Main worries it could get worse. It can get very difficult at times watching These lines getting longer and longer. What do you expect in the coming months when county support federal support drops off, our families will come to us and even greater numbers, and that's my biggest fear. And you know we have to serve. All of those people were committed to serving everybody who comes to our doors. Joining me now now Live Live is is the the director director of of the National the National Institute Institute of Allergy of Allergy and and Infectious Infectious Diseases, Diseases, Dr Dr Anthony Anthony Fauci. Fauci. Dr Dr Fauci. Fauci. Welcome Welcome back back to to this this week. week. Today Today could could be be the the busiest busiest travel travel day day in in the country the country since since the the start start of the of pandemic, the pandemic, even even though though you you and and other other public public health health leaders leaders have have made made appeal appeal after after appeal appeal for for people people to stay to stay put. put. And And distance distance as as much much as as possible. possible. When When you you watch watch these these scenes, scenes, what what do you do think? you think? And And what what else else can can you you possibly possibly say say to to them? them? Well, Well, I mean, I mean, the the travel travel that that has has been been done done has has been been done done right right now now is is people people go go back? back? We want We want to to urge urge them. them. If they've If they've been been in situations in situations outside outside of of the the family family setting setting in in which which they they really really don't don't know know the level the level of of exposure exposure to to be be really really careful careful when when you you either either return return from from the place the place that that you you went. went. Other Other people people come come back back into into your your house. house. That you've That you've really really got got to understand to understand the importance the importance of of trying trying to to prevent prevent further further spread spread and and further further surge surge that that maybe maybe when when you you go go back back to to where where you you came came from, from, if if it's it's possible possible to to quarantine quarantine yourself yourself for for a a period period of time, of time, or or even even get get tested tested to to make make sure sure That you're That you're not not bringing bringing infection infection back back to to another another place place being being another another home home or or another another family. family. Having Having said said that that we we have have to to be be careful careful now now because because they're they're almost almost certainly certainly is is going going to be to be an an uptick uptick because because of of what what has has happened happened with with the travel. the travel. We We understand. understand. The importance The importance of of family family is getting is getting together together and and it's it's just just something something that that we we have have to to deal deal with with that that we we likely likely will will have have an an increase increase in in cases cases as as we we get get into into the the colder colder weeks. weeks. Of the Of the winter. winter. And And as as we we approach approach the Christmas the Christmas season, season, please please don't don't forget forget the the standard standard public public health health measures measures that that we we talk talk about about The reason The reason I I say say that that a a moth moth and and and and almost almost plead plead with with people people is is that that we we do do know know That it That it does does work. work. Countries Countries that that have have mitigated mitigated have have turned turned around around the surge. the surge. States States that that have have mitigated mitigated have have had had a a turnaround turnaround of the of the inflection inflection of of the the curb. curb. So So it it does does work. work. And And as as we've we've just just heard, heard, help help is is on on the the way way Vaccines Vaccines a a really really right right on on the the horizon. horizon. Will Will be be having having vaccines vaccines available available for for the the higher higher priority priority people people towards towards the the middle middle and and end end of of December December and and as as we we get get into into January January and and February, February, so so everyone everyone is is totally totally empathetic. empathetic. About About the the fatigue fatigue that that everyone everyone is is feeling. feeling. But But if we if we can can hang hang in in there, there, hang hang in in there there a a bit bit longer longer and and do do the fundamental the fundamental things things wearing wearing of of mask mask uniformly uniformly avoiding avoiding crowds crowds and and congregate congregate settings, settings, keeping keeping physical physical distance distance washing washing your your hands. hands. They They seem seem simple simple in in the the enormity enormity of of the problem. the problem. That we're That we're facing, facing, But But they they do do make make a a difference. difference. Dr. Dr. Fauci Fauci pleaded pleaded before before the the beginning. beginning. Yeah, Yeah, Doc Doc Doctor Doctor Fauci. Fauci. You You have have said said that that again again and and again again and and again. again. We We saw saw all all those those people people traveling. traveling. So So you you know know what's what's coming. coming. And And with with Christmas Christmas just just around around the corner, the corner, do do you you think think will will be be under under the the same same restrictions restrictions that that you you recommended? recommended? On Thanksgiving On Thanksgiving going going into into Christmas. Christmas. You You know, know, Martha, Martha, I I can't can't see see how how we're we're not not gonna gonna have have the the same same thing thing because because when when you you have have the the kind kind of inflection of inflection that that we we have, have, it it doesn't doesn't all of all of a sudden a sudden turn turn around around like like that. that. So So clearly, clearly, in in the the next next few few weeks, weeks, we're we're gonna gonna have have the the same same sort sort of thing. of thing. And And perhaps perhaps even even two two or or three three weeks weeks down down the the line, line, Martha, Martha, we we may may see see a a surge surge upon upon a a surge. surge. You You know, we know, we don't don't want want to frighten to frighten people. people. But But that's that's just just the the reality. reality. We We said said that that these these things things would would happen. happen. As we As we got got into into the the cold cold weather, weather, and and as as we we began began traveling, traveling, and and they've they've happened, happened, it's it's gonna gonna happen happen again. again. So So I I cannot cannot see see all all of of a a sudden sudden a a relax relax ation ation of of the kinds the kinds of of recommendations recommendations or or restrictions restrictions because because we're we're getting getting into into colder colder weather weather and and enough enough in in even even larger larger holiday holiday season season as as people people travel travel to to come come back back and and forth. forth. For Christmas, For Christmas, so so I I don't don't see see a a relax relax ation ation of of the kind the kind of of recommendations recommendations and and restrictions restrictions that that we've we've made. made. And And Dr Dr Factually. Factually. The Supreme The Supreme Court Court on on Wednesday Wednesday struck struck down down New New York's York's Covad Covad restrictions restrictions on on religious religious gatherings gatherings in in the state. the state. How How concerned concerned are you are you about about legal legal challenges challenges to to pandemic pandemic restrictions restrictions going going forward? forward? Well, Well, I I mean, mean, they they happened, happened, Martha. Martha. There's There's nothing nothing I I could could do about do about it. it. I I just just keep keep saying saying that that when when people people ask ask me me for for Opinions Opinions of of specific specific things things rather rather than than make make a a comment comment on on a a specific specific things. things. I I could could just just say say it it doesn't doesn't matter matter who who you you are are where where you you are, are, when when you have you have congregate congregate settings, settings, particularly particularly indoors. indoors. When When people people are not are not wearing wearing masks, masks, that that is is a a considerable considerable risk risk for for acquisition acquisition and and spread spread of of infection, infection, no no matter matter what what the circumstances the circumstances that that is is a a risk. risk. And And you you said said there there should should be more be more regular regular testing testing available available for for asymptomatic asymptomatic people. people. How How soon soon do do you think you think before before Americans Americans could could have have inexpensive inexpensive home home tests? tests? And And why why haven't haven't they they so so far? far? Well, Well, I I hope hope it's it's sooner sooner rather rather than than later, later, Martha. Martha. I mean I mean they they obviously obviously we've we've done done better better in in testing testing than than we we did did early early on on in the in beginning. the beginning. But you're But you're talking talking about about different different kinds kinds and and different different motivations motivations and and different different objectives objectives of of testing. testing. If If you're you're trying trying to find to find out out if if a a person person is is infected infected either either for for contact contact tracing tracing or or what what have have you you then then you you want want a a highly highly sensitive sensitive test test that that might might take take a a day day or or two two to to get get a a result result back. back. When When you're you're trying trying to find to find out out what what the the extent extent of of the community the community spread spread is is that that is is driven driven very very clearly, clearly, at at least least in in part part by by asymptomatic asymptomatic spread, spread, so so we we need need to to know know the extent the extent of of the the asymptomatic. asymptomatic. The only The only way way you you know know that that is is what what you you just just asked asked for. for. And I And I would would like like to to have have seen seen it it already. already. And And I hope I hope that that we we get get it soon. it soon. Rapid, Rapid, sensitive, sensitive, specific specific home home testing testing even even one one that that you you might might not not even even need need a a prescription prescription for for so so that that people people can can have have within within their their own own power power to to know know whether whether or or not not it it is is in in his his highly highly sensitive sensitive is is the the other, other, but but it it is is very very helpful, helpful, particularly particularly if if you you do do it it over over and and over over again. again. I hope I hope we we get get that that soon. soon. And And Dr Dr Fauci Fauci in New in York New York City City Public Public school school shut shut down down again again earlier earlier this this month. month. I I know know your your default default position position is is that that you'd you'd like like to to see see the the skull skull schools schools open. open. But But how how do do you you make make that that happen? happen? And And how how would would you you advise advise the the incoming incoming Biden Biden administration administration on on getting getting a a sort sort of unified of unified response? response? Well, Well, you you know, know, Martha, Martha, that's that's a a good good question. question. We get We get asked asked that all that all the the time. time. You You know, we know, we say say it it not not being being facetiously facetiously as as a a sound sound bite bite or anything, or anything, but but you you know, know, Closed Closed the boss the boss and and keep keep the the school's school's open open is is what what we really we really say. say. Obviously, Obviously, you you don't don't have have one one size size fits fits all. all. But But as as I I said said in in the past, the past, and and as as you you accurately accurately quoted quoted me me The default The default position position should should be be to to try try his his best best this this possible possible within within reason reason to keep to keep the the Children Children in school in school to to get get them them back back to school. to school. The The best best way way to to ensure ensure the the safety safety of of the Children the Children in school in school is is to to get get the community the community level level of of spread spread low. low. So So if if you you mitigate mitigate the things the things that that you you know, know, are are causing causing spread spread In a In a very, very, very very profound profound way way in in a a robust robust way. way. If If you you bring bring that that down, down, you you will will then then indirectly indirectly and and ultimately ultimately protect protect the Children the Children in the in school the school because because the the community community level level is is determined determined how how things things go go across across the the board. board. So my So my feeling feeling would would be the be the same same thing. thing. If If you you look look at at the the data, data, the spread the spread among among Children Children and and from from Children Children is is not not really really very very big big at at all, all, not not like like one one would would have have suspected. suspected. So So let's let's try try to to get get the the kids kids back. back. But But let's let's try try to to mitigate mitigate the the things things that that maintain maintain and and and and just just push push the the kind kind of community of community spread spread that that we're we're trying trying to avoid. to avoid. And And those those other other things things that that you you know know well, well, the the bars bars the the restaurants restaurants where where you have you have capacity capacity seating seating indoors indoors without without masks. masks. Those Those of of the things the things that that drive drive the the community community spread, spread, not not the the schools schools and and and and Dr Dr fracture. fracture. You You talked talked about about the the vaccine vaccine and and the availability the availability of of the the vaccine. vaccine. The government The government Can't Can't force force everyone everyone to take to take the vaccine. the vaccine. So So what what about about schools? schools? Companies? Companies? Employers? Employers? Can Can they they mandate mandate of vaccine of vaccine like like in in other other vaccines? vaccines? You You know know any any individual individual group group command command eight eight vaccines vaccines in in certain certain ways, ways, Martha, Martha, It's It's not. not. I I believe believe going going to come to come centrally. centrally. I I don't don't want want to get to get ahead ahead of of the game the game there, there, but but I I doubt doubt that. that. That would That would happen. happen. For For example, example, right right now, now, myself. myself. I I mean, mean, I'm I'm at at the the NIH NIH Clinical Clinical Center. Center. I'm I'm a a physician. physician. I I see see patients. patients. I I have have to to get get the the influenza influenza vaccine vaccine or or I'm I'm not not gonna gonna be able be able to see to see patients, patients, so so individual individual units units be be they they hospitals hospitals or or other other organizations. organizations. Can't Can't do do that. that. It's It's within within their their right right to to say. say. If If you you want want to work to work with with us, us, you're you're gonna gonna have have to to get get a vaccine. a vaccine. But But that's that's not not going going to be, to be, I I believe, believe, essentially essentially mandated mandated process process and and Dr Dr Factory. Factory. There There are are concerns concerns about about the the anti anti vaccination vaccination movement movement and and infectious infectious to to see see disease disease specialists specialists in Boston, in Boston, telling telling the Boston the Boston Globe Globe the same the same energy energy that that was was placed placed into into development development and and distribution distribution of a of a Corona Corona virus. virus. Vaccine Vaccine should should have have been been placed placed in in messaging messaging and and community community engagement. engagement. Do you Do you agree agree with with that? that? Oh, Oh, absolutely. absolutely. We We have have to to engage engage the the community. community. Martha Martha B. B. Because Because we we do do have have a a degree degree of of anti anti vax vax to to begin begin with. with. But But then then there's there's skepticism skepticism about about this this vaccine. vaccine. So So we've we've got got to be to be able able to to get get out out there there get get community community people people who who the the community community trust trust to show to show two two things. things. The process The process of of the the development development of of this this vaccine vaccine has has been been one one that that has has been been scientifically scientifically sound sound safety safety has has not not been been compromised. compromised. Scientific Scientific integrity integrity has has not not been been compromised compromised and and the process the process Of determining Of determining whether whether it it works. works. Whether Whether it's it's safe safe and and effective, effective, has has been been independent independent by by independent independent bodies bodies and and transparent. transparent. We've We've got got to get to get the the community community the broad the broad community community of of the United the United States States to to see see that that and and appreciate appreciate that. that. And And how how could could be be we'd we'd be sure be sure there there won't won't be prolonged be prolonged side side effects effects from from this this vaccine. vaccine. Well, Well, you you know, know, Martin, Martin, the one the one thing thing you've you've got got to admit to admit that that in in any any intervention, intervention, there there might might be be a side a side effect. effect. The The history history of of vaccine vaccine ology ology that that we we know know for for decades decades and and decades. decades. Is that Is that when when you you talk talk about about prolonged prolonged side side effects effects that's that's very very rare rare and and the side the side effects effects that that occurred occurred that that are beyond are beyond the immediate the immediate pain pain in in the the arm arm and and the fever the fever and and things things like like that. that. Generally Generally occur occur when when you look you look at at like like 95% 95% of the of time the time between between maybe maybe 30 30 and and 45 45 days, days, which which is is the the exact exact reason reason why why the the FDA FDA said said that that they they would would not not want want Tonto Tonto issue issue and and you you a a or or approve approve anyway anyway and and emergency emergency use use organization organization until until 60 60 days days after after half half of of the the people people in in a a trial trial Have Have gone gone from from their their last last dose. dose. So So already, already, the the FDA FDA has has baked baked into into the the process, process, a a safety safety mechanism mechanism to to make make sure sure that that you you have have historically historically overwhelming overwhelming chance chance that that you're you're not not gonna gonna have have a a very very late late effect. effect. Having Having said said that that also, also, you you don't don't just just forget forget about about it. Once it. Once the the trial trial is is over, over, you you have have one one or or two two years years of of the the trial trial follow follow up. up. In In addition addition to to post post trial trial follow follow up up So that's So that's something something that that is is very, very, very very high high priority priority is is the the immediate immediate intermediate intermediate and and long long term term safety safety of of these these vaccines. vaccines. It's It's not not something something that's that's being being disregarded. disregarded.
Christmas and New Year’s restrictions will be necessary due to holiday coronavirus wave, says Dr. Fauci
"Now Live is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr Anthony Fauci. Dr Fauci. Welcome back to this week. Today could be the busiest travel day in the country since the start of the pandemic, even though you and other public health leaders have made appeal after appeal for people to stay put. And distance as much as possible. When you watch these scenes, what do you think? And what else can you possibly say to them? Well, I mean, the travel that has been done has been done right now is people go back? We want to urge them. If they've been in situations outside of the family setting in which they really don't know the level of exposure to be really careful when you either return from the place that you went. Other people come back into your house. That you've really got to understand the importance of trying to prevent further spread and further surge that maybe when you go back to where you came from, if it's possible to quarantine yourself for a period of time, or even get tested to make sure That you're not bringing infection back to another place being another home or another family. Having said that we have to be careful now because they're almost certainly is going to be an uptick because of what has happened with the travel. We understand. The importance of family is getting together and it's just something that we have to deal with that we likely will have an increase in cases as we get into the colder weeks. Of the winter. And as we approach the Christmas season, please don't forget the standard public health measures that we talk about The reason I say that a moth and and almost plead with people is that we do know That it does work. Countries that have mitigated have turned around the surge. States that have mitigated have had a turnaround of the inflection of the curb. So it does work. And as we've just heard, help is on the way Vaccines a really right on the horizon. Will be having vaccines available for the higher priority people towards the middle and end of December and as we get into January and February, so everyone is totally empathetic. About the fatigue that everyone is feeling. But if we can hang in there, hang in there a bit longer and do the fundamental things wearing of mask uniformly avoiding crowds and congregate settings, keeping physical distance washing your hands. They seem simple in the enormity of the problem. That we're facing, But they do make a difference. Dr. Fauci pleaded before the beginning. Yeah, Doc Doctor Fauci. You have said that again and again and again. We saw all those people traveling. So you know what's coming. And with Christmas just around the corner, do you think will be under the same restrictions that you recommended? On Thanksgiving going into Christmas. You know, Martha, I can't see how we're not gonna have the same thing because when you have the kind of inflection that we have, it doesn't all of a sudden turn around like that. So clearly, in the next few weeks, we're gonna have the same sort of thing. And perhaps even two or three weeks down the line, Martha, we may see a surge upon a surge. You know, we don't want to frighten people. But that's just the reality. We said that these things would happen. As we got into the cold weather, and as we began traveling, and they've happened, it's gonna happen again. So I cannot see all of a sudden a relax ation of the kinds of recommendations or restrictions because we're getting into colder weather and enough in even larger holiday season as people travel to come back and forth. For Christmas, so I don't see a relax ation of the kind of recommendations and restrictions that we've made. And Dr Factually. The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down New York's Covad restrictions on religious gatherings in the state. How concerned are you about legal challenges to pandemic restrictions going forward? Well, I mean, they happened, Martha. There's nothing I could do about it. I just keep saying that when people ask me for Opinions of specific things rather than make a comment on a specific things. I could just say it doesn't matter who you are where you are, when you have congregate settings, particularly indoors. When people are not wearing masks, that is a considerable risk for acquisition and spread of infection, no matter what the circumstances that is a risk. And you said there should be more regular testing available for asymptomatic people. How soon do you think before Americans could have inexpensive home tests? And why haven't they so far? Well, I hope it's sooner rather than later, Martha. I mean they obviously we've done better in testing than we did early on in the beginning. But you're talking about different kinds and different motivations and different objectives of testing. If you're trying to find out if a person is infected either for contact tracing or what have you then you want a highly sensitive test that might take a day or two to get a result back. When you're trying to find out what the extent of the community spread is that is driven very clearly, at least in part by asymptomatic spread, so we need to know the extent of the asymptomatic. The only way you know that is what you just asked for. And I would like to have seen it already. And I hope that we get it soon. Rapid, sensitive, specific home testing even one that you might not even need a prescription for so that people can have within their own power to know whether or not it is in his highly sensitive is the other, but it is very helpful, particularly if you do it over and over again. I hope we get that soon. And Dr Fauci in New York City Public school shut down again earlier this month. I know your default position is that you'd like to see the skull schools open. But how do you make that happen? And how would you advise the incoming Biden administration on getting a sort of unified response? Well, you know, Martha, that's a good question. We get asked that all the time. You know, we say it not being facetiously as a sound bite or anything, but you know, Closed the boss and keep the school's open is what we really say. Obviously, you don't have one size fits all. But as I said in the past, and as you accurately quoted me The default position should be to try his best this possible within reason to keep the Children in school to get them back to school. The best way to ensure the safety of the Children in school is to get the community level of spread low. So if you mitigate the things that you know, are causing spread In a very, very profound way in a robust way. If you bring that down, you will then indirectly and ultimately protect the Children in the school because the community level is determined how things go across the board. So my feeling would be the same thing. If you look at the data, the spread among Children and from Children is not really very big at all, not like one would have suspected. So let's try to get the kids back. But let's try to mitigate the things that maintain and and just push the kind of community spread that we're trying to avoid. And those other things that you know well, the bars the restaurants where you have capacity seating indoors without masks. Those of the things that drive the community spread, not the schools and and Dr fracture. You talked about the vaccine and the availability of the vaccine. The government Can't force everyone to take the vaccine. So what about schools? Companies? Employers? Can they mandate of vaccine like in other vaccines? You know any individual group command eight vaccines in certain ways, Martha, It's not. I believe going to come centrally. I don't want to get ahead of the game there, but I doubt that. That would happen. For example, right now, myself. I mean, I'm at the NIH Clinical Center. I'm a physician. I see patients. I have to get the influenza vaccine or I'm not gonna be able to see patients, so individual units be they hospitals or other organizations. Can't do that. It's within their right to say. If you want to work with us, you're gonna have to get a vaccine. But that's not going to be, I believe, essentially mandated process and Dr Factory. There are concerns about the anti vaccination movement and infectious to see disease specialists in Boston, telling the Boston Globe the same energy that was placed into development and distribution of a Corona virus. Vaccine should have been placed in messaging and community engagement. Do you agree with that? Oh, absolutely. We have to engage the community. Martha B. Because we do have a degree of anti vax to begin with. But then there's skepticism about this vaccine. So we've got to be able to get out there get community people who the community trust to show two things. The process of the development of this vaccine has been one that has been scientifically sound safety has not been compromised. Scientific integrity has not been compromised and the process Of determining whether it works. Whether it's safe and effective, has been independent by independent bodies and transparent. We've got to get the community the broad community of the United States to see that and appreciate that. And how could be we'd be sure there won't be prolonged side effects from this vaccine. Well, you know, Martin, the one thing you've got to admit that in any intervention, there might be a side effect. The history of vaccine ology that we know for decades and decades. Is that when you talk about prolonged side effects that's very rare and the side effects that occurred that are beyond the immediate pain in the arm and the fever and things like that. Generally occur when you look at like 95% of the time between maybe 30 and 45 days, which is the exact reason why the FDA said that they would not want Tonto issue and you a or approve anyway and emergency use organization until 60 days after half of the people in a trial Have gone from their last dose. So already, the FDA has baked into the process, a safety mechanism to make sure that you have historically overwhelming chance that you're not gonna have a very late effect. Having said that also, you don't just forget about it. Once the trial is over, you have one or two years of the trial follow up. In addition to post trial follow up So that's something that is very, very high priority is the immediate intermediate and long term safety of these vaccines. It's not something that's being disregarded. Okay. Thanks so much for joining us this morning, Dr Fauci. It's always great to see you. We'll be right
Supreme Court Strikes Down New York COVID Restrictions
"The new Supreme Court has spoken, and it is a much different message as it relates to Covad restrictions from the government. 93 w A. B C. It's the Mark and Rob. Show him Rob Mok is out Abdul in for Mok. And obviously, this came down late on Wednesday. With yesterday being Thanksgiving. We didn't get a chance to get to it. But the Supreme Court essentially striking down the order from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, putting a limit on how many people could attend certain religious services again simplifying a very complex issue, but basically saying Hey, If you say liquor stores and bike shops can have whatever. Then you can't say religious institutions can't have a two almost soon. You say they got it wrong. Um, not necessarily. I think they got it right. But it was the question Woz. Um Did the rule really apply anymore? Because the mayor of New York City had sort of lift exits. The Governor York had sort of color coded like from orange thread in the synagogue to church. We're back in the orange category. Not the red category. So the question was. Is this really an issue at all? But what this gets, too? And it's going to sound really where I got to get in the weeds for just a little bit Sure, because we should point out the people hearing your voice. You are a man of all you are an attorney license in two states, which means we gotta start paying my annual to send to stop it. It's gonna cost about 350 bucks. There is this issue was called muteness and rightness. Muteness basically means that the issues over and the court doesn't have to deal. With it right. This means the issue isn't ready yet for the court to deal with, And so what? I'm thinking what the Supreme Court did Well said, Hey, technically, the issue is moot in the sense that no. They change the color code. This game and all charges. You got to go back to 50%. But they said this could come back up again. And so we want to make sure that the issue is is sort of settled, at least for right now, and that's why I think that's I think that's why they did what they did because you can't Treat religious institutions differently unless you've got a really, really good reason to do it. It's like it's got. Let's just all the strict scrutiny analysis and I'm like really delighted, said It's truly with the girdle on which is what he said. It's like No, that's that's not it. It's no, that's not it. Um In a nutshell. You you have a situation where I don't see why. I just couldn't remember to everybody the same, which is like a 15% capacity across the board. 25% capacity across the board. You gotta social distance and that'll that'll take care of it. But now we got the mayor. The Governor York City say the courts rule doesn't matter because we're no longer in that red So we're now in the Orange zone. But still, the court could say, Hey, this will come back. We just want to make sure that we know exactly what's going on. Because, well, well, I do agree with with in principle with the theory that hang in the Constitution doesn't stop for pandemic. You still have to You're still you're still in the pandemic. I have so many legal questions off of this. And if you are really ever you see the read these articles and said, But why did you this This is this is writing Abdul's wheelhouse. So the first question I have is when a ruling like this comes down because we've seen people like in the state of Indiana be very upset that the governor and in the early days of the pandemic said Well, religious liquor stores can stay open. But these places have to close and go into a liquor store. But you can't go in here. Does this apply across the country now? Does everybody have to look at this and go? Okay. This is the new law like how do we snow? Because this we're basically dealing with emergency orders, so the emergency order only applies to the emergency. The order. You need actual case X again up to the Supreme Court. So what does that mean? Cause I would look at this and say this is a This is a case. So what? No, it's no. It's Zen emergency hearing. Um For lack of a better term kinda figure how to explain this in like 10, seconds or less. Since keeping relatively simple in a nutshell, The court will hear cases like you know. Plessy vs Ferguson served Kendall versus shabbas or something like that has gone through the district Court, the appellate court and then to the Supreme Court. Then the court will also hear these sort of emergency orders, which is Hey, our rights are being violated. We need to know a quick opinion. Next. Why Z, which which gets to need to where I was going to go? Which is? How does the court decide? I was gonna ask you that question. This seems like it came very quickly versus these cases that sometimes you know, we'll hear an argument in October and they don't rule until June. Or you give it I say that it takes forever to go to go through. These sort of things are for those specific issues. So like Trump may appeal Some ruling related to the election, and that would be just for that specific thing. It wouldn't have some overarching. Apparently it was in the emergency order category, for example. Hey, we need to throw these ballots out right now. Because December 14th, the Electoral college is going to do X Y Z so the court will now the court can hear things on an expedited basis. I'II Bush versus Gore. Which, interestingly, which, by the way only applies to Bush versus Gore. Well, so let's let's let's branch off that rabble by the whites, The mark and Rob Show Mark is out, Rob here of duels in for Mark, We're talking a little bit about this. Ruling by the Supreme Court. Limiting of the governor of New York's ability to restrict religious activities were trying to from a legal perspective sort through what that means. One of the fascinating things for me reading about this is how Gorsuch was sparring with Roberts in their legal written opinions now wouldn't Jerry Springer they weren't yelling at each other on stage, but the different articles I was reading, say, said, this is pretty intense for supreme for two Supreme Court justices. This is basically their version of sniping at each other is that is that unusual for judges? It is not uncommon for judges to take little pot shots at each other. Supreme Court has done it even on that level on that level yet because they're all so they're still human beings. But you know this because I want to lead us to another look, they clearly they are brilliant whether you agree with their their judicial philosophy or not there. They're brilliant legal people, So they know they're smarter than everyone else, right? I mean, that comes off a lot of times when you hear them question the people at the court, But this this is unusual for them for one, the leaders to take shot and another elitist and it is in the sense that you have both know too conservative judges what may be a bit more ideological conservative than the other. But it is not uncommon for judges, too. Occasionally taking taking ticket but sort of a backhanded compliment to each other. So to speak, Okay? I did
How COVID-19 has changed shopper behaviour
"Equity research committed. I'm trying to understand this to the increases in Cove it positive testing rates in United States America across the country, including hospitalizations. The very late two people shopping less or just changing how they shop. Shopping left for sure. Thanks for having me. Fantastic. Have you let's build on that. Then Camilla waited, They shot less. In store today is Black. Friday here in the U. S. And Covad 19 is completely challenging traditional holiday calendar. I think we're gonna be seeing very few shopaholics trending on Twitter campaign outside of Wal Mart or Target or bust by today. And That very muted outlook we have on black Friday, which traditionally has been one of the biggest holiday shopping days of the year, has to do a fear of covert 19 and daily cases. Reaching new daily highs. In fact, the survey in October found That a little over 10% of consumers said that they were very likely to shop in stores on Black Friday. So Camilla, the medium on the medium of which people choose. The sharp is clearly shifting away from bricks and mortar towards e commerce. That's been clear for years and accelerated through this pandemic. When I say where were they shop less? I'm trying to understand. What will people spend money on Home Depot in the home improvement channel? That is just being absolutely massive through this year. Is that what you see continued strength into 2021, even with the vaccine. Absolutely. When we look at the survey data, we've seen elevated interest for home decker and home furnishings, which doesn't come to us a surprise given that with covert 19 cocooning People are taking on more at home living projects, but also the data that we looked that has shown that gift card that clothing and accessories will continue to be popular categories this holiday season. Wow, clothing Finally, because everyone seems to been pretty doom and gloom on that one, commander. I'm a sucker for an experiential present. You know, you name it, Cook recalls some sort of cocktail making thing in people doing that. I mean, we've seen a B and B managed to pivot into that sort of element of things. But I feel the experiential is gonna be foot coming off the gas. What we're seeing. This is specifically with the higher income. Demographic and why we have a forecast for the holiday season season of a case shaped economic recovery is that higher income individuals which have seen Master restoration of jobs and higher income growth there, actually Distinct spend away from pandemic. Reliant services like travel like entertainment liked experiences, and that spend is actually shifting into retail this holiday season. So our holiday outlook, which is that retail sales for the month of November and December will be flat year over year coming in at $1.5. Trillion. It's really reliant on how much these higher income individuals splurge this holiday season. SK shaped economy is so important to us on the unequal nature of which this rebound is occurring, who benefits by the fact that there are fortunately, middle high income brackets were able to spend on a on a piece of jewelry rather than high end luxury travel. Bond, who doesn't who loses out by the fact that those are now who can manage to get back to work at the moment, are unable to buy for their Children in the way that he usually would Under retailer and we did a digital traffic analysis. It's an analysis that we run every year to forecaster, winners and losers and the reason why we look at digital traffic. Because we see a direct positive correlation between digital traffic it in store traffic. And we saw growing momentum. Luxury brands like Tiffany's entering this holiday season, and then one name that we called out in terms of our top five winners was Williams Sonoma, which is a digital first home furnishing retailer. Specifically targeted to a higher income demographic and then in terms of losers. I think it comes more on the lower income consumer end because We think that this group of people is are very likely to embrace frugality this holiday season As fiscal stimulus starts to run low, there are estimates step approximately 12 million workers. Are facing a jobless benefit Cliff on December 26. We appreciate your time this morning. Ready to have you had a wonderful Thanksgiving chameleonic Chesky there of CFR A on retail in America. Home Depot count on hard Home Depot this
Coronavirus Vaccine: Race for a Covid-19 Cure
"Now the race for a vaccine was part of a discussion that I moderated from our recent Bloomberg New economy form a panel. It really looked at how the world can ensure that we never ever have another catastrophe like Covad 19. That panel was with Stefan Bonsall, chief executive officer at Madonna. Regina Dugan CEO it welcome Leap, and Dr Wu Zun Yo, chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. We began by hearing from a Dernis CEO. On their vaccine. We announce that the first experiment disease or face pre study To study your 50,000 participants. So the most 95% because see, but the piece of experience more excited is the fact that off 11 equal with severe disease. They were all of those people were no on the vaccine. And so if you think about it, what does that mean? I mean that once we get the final data, we should be able to see this is confident that if you get over thing 95% chance of you know this news. And if you get is easy with my symptoms. We need not have cereal this season that we know that that's what he's been a big impact in terms off hospitalization for patient with the worst. I seen you professionally in the world's there. It will be impacted has had, but only in human life, of course, but on the mental health on the economy. We think this could be a game changer. And so what we're doing now is the thing the final data or locked up. Submitting these regret origins is there on the world. And hopefully I will be getting the vaccine approving the emergency use before the end of the year. We're making us much Philip this week, and then we said we'd have before me in a very expensive meat, and those is Ready to ship as soon as we have rigged artery
Hospitals Puzzled With How To Administer Monoclonal Antibodies To COVID-19 Patients
"Are starting to use new drugs that are designed to keep covert 19 patients out of the hospital. But it's not clear how well these monoclonal antibodies work, and some hospital administrators are wondering how long their staffs will be able to give this time consuming treatment. As emergency rooms and beds fill up. NPR's science correspondent Richard Harris spoke to doctors in New Mexico and Wisconsin as they launched their treatment programs. The Food and Drug Administration has granted emergency authorization to two monoclonal antibody formulations. These drugs are supposed to prevent the Corona virus from invading cells there specifically for people with mild to moderate disease who are not in the hospital. And it's not just a shot or a pill. They have to be given by Ivy infusion, a process that takes two hours or more like everything in today's world during the pandemic, our biggest challenges are around staffing. Dr. Peter Newcomer is chief clinical officer at University of Wisconsin Health in Madison. He says his hospital is giving the drug after hours in an infusion center so infectious covert patients don't cross paths with cancer patients and other vulnerable people. Special plea went out for nurses to take on yet another shift. Even as the hospital struggles with rising Covad cases, the hospital can initially handle eight patients a night. Newcomer says They started with three patients on Tuesday night. Our advertising campaign to the community when I'll come Monday and Tuesday, so we're going to see more tonight and then Philip all over slots. Real soon. If everyone who qualifies for this treatment asks for it, the hospital will quickly run out of drugs. So you w health set up a system to identify people who would most likely benefit primarily people over 65 with underlying health conditions. Will randomly pick from that pool. If there isn't enough drug to go around. It's basically a lottery type system with an allocation that is done as equitably as we can informed consent for this includes telling patients that it's not clear just how well these drugs actually work. The National Institutes of Health put out treatment guidelines, saying there's simply not enough information to know if they are effective. Company studies suggest doctors have to treat 10 to 20 patients to avoid a single hospitalization. Dr. Newcomer wishes he could tell how well the huge investment in staff time will pay off as long as we can continue to provide this treatment. We plan on it. It's gonna have to be an ongoing evaluation of what we can afford to do. From the staffing standpoint, the drugs could help hospitals if they can keep their patient loads down in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Dr. David Gonzalez is keeping a close eye on the capacity of Krista's ST Vincent's Hospital where he's the chief medical officer. We're currently entering crisis levels stage with bed capacity that's throughout the state of New Mexico. His hospital is directing people most likely to benefit from the new treatment to the hospital's emergency room for the infusions. We have a portion of our emergency room that's dedicated to cope in positive patients. Krista Saint Vincent's Hospital infused its first patient Tuesday, using one of the eight initial doses of the drug allocated by the state of New Mexico. After the hour long infusion. Nurses monitor patients for 1 to 6 hours to make sure that there are no serious side effects, and Gonzales says that monitoring continues once patients leave the hospital were able to follow the patients at home. And, uh, and a pain their vital signs and they can go through a questionnaire in which we ask them if they're experiencing specific symptoms more than 2400 medical facilities nationwide have been allocated some of these drugs. And many are like these in New Mexico in Wisconsin, now starting to figure out how to make it all work. Richard
As COVID-19 Vaccine Nears, Employers Consider Making It Mandatory
"Or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality. Ah, quarter million people in the U. S have died from Cove it once there's a shot can that can prevent illness Should it be mandatory in the workplace? NPR's Andrea Hsu has more Only a couple of months into the pandemic. Holly Smith had made up her mind. Her restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland, Washington, would not reopen the diners until there was a covert 19 vaccine. She's She's already already told told her her staff staff you you are are going going to to get get vaccinated. vaccinated. Some Some of of my my young young millennials millennials are are like like Saran Saran taking. taking. This This is is a a directive directive like like as as a a mandate. mandate. Is Is that that how how you you mean mean it? it? And And that's that's that's that's a scary thing. You know, like Yeah. Yes, yes, Smith had 28 employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her fine dining spot has become a take out on Lee business. Even with a much smaller staff, Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested. If they go on vacation with people outside their bubble, or if they're showing any sign of illness. I believe in civil liberties and all those different things, but you know, we have people who live with their parents. We have people who lived with her husband, who has diabetes. The staff have to be healthy and safe before you could move forward, she says, you know for vaccinated I think I can move out in the world and be responsible for these 28 or 30 people. Plus all the people coming in. Now, if you're wondering, Can she actually do this? Can she require her workers to get vaccinated? The answer appears to be yes, but her workers also have the right to request exemptions. Under federal law. Someone could say I have a medical or religious reason I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage a mandate. Johnnie Taylor Jr is president of the Society for Human Resource Management, He says Each request must be evaluated on its own merits. Now imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in 10. Americans don't want the vaccine, though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work. So this is a true headache for HR professionals. That's why you're likely to see many companies strongly encourage the vaccine, but stopped short of mandating it. Take, for example, the pork producers Smithfield, the company told NPR. They're not anticipating a firm mandate, but they want to offer the vaccine on site. Even with all the headaches, Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate. After all, they have an obligation to get rid of any known hazards in the workplace like Covad. It's real and it's devastating. So I think the dynamic changes. Employers are actually going to position this as I need to do this full stop. Now. There are some workplaces that already mandate the flu vaccine, most commonly hospitals. Dr. James McDevitt is dean of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He says the annual flu shot is required for some 14,000 people, doctors, nurses, med students, even the clerks. They're sitting in a computer that don't see live patients. It's the right thing to do for society, he says. If you claim an exemption, you have to wear a mask. Now with the covert vaccine. Baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe, not just by the FDA, McDivitt says, but by his own colleagues. Johnny Taylor Jr says. Whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges. And so Congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides. Legal protection for companies that mandate the vaccine in case someone has a bad reaction. Even though you will have to sign a waiver before you get the shot. They've also gotta protect the employers who decide not to make it. Mandate and then who are sued by employees who contracted Taylor has been meeting with federal employment officials telling them employers want to do the right thing, but they're in a tough spot, and they're going to need help getting through this.
Los Angeles County reports record in daily COVID-19 cases
"Leaders are considering some new restrictions dealing with the surge. The Board of Supervisors is due to take up the issue at today's meeting. The county yesterday reported more than 6100 New Covad 19 cases, the highest daily total so far, and it's her past the threshold set last week for a new, safer home order, with the five day average of new cases now with more than 4500 per day. Public health director Barbara Ferrer says a new order will be more targeted than the one that was issued in March. I know for sure we're not going back to all of the restrictions that were in place in the original safer at home order, she says. Officials have learned a lot since that night and notes there's much greater testing capacity. Now. County officials have already said that a new safer at home order would last at least three weeks. They've also agreed to suspend outdoor dining at restaurants, breweries and wineries. If the five day average of new cases hit 4000 day, which it did. On Sunday, triggering a new health officer order that's set to take effect tomorrow night. Supervisors Katherine Barker and Janice Hahn have since evolved and implementing the new dining restrictions, but concede it's not their call to make
AstraZeneca Trial Promises 'Highly Effective' COVID-19 Vaccine
"Vaccine candidates who hit the market will be from AstraZeneca, announcing today their vaccine is 90% effective. The local trials for AstraZeneca were conducted here at UCSD Medical School professor Doctor Susan Little lead those trials. Another run honestly hearing that another vaccine has up to 91st. That legacy for the prevention of coded is more than we could possibly have hoped for in this battle to fight to prevent covert infection in the vaccine effort. It's incredible. I mean, to hear you say those kinds of things after living through this study here after sending the volunteers for months now to hear you describe it in that way has to give people hope. I really hope so, You know, Frankly, this is much more than I ever hoped for. I think many of us were optimistic that we would have a few vaccines that were effective, but to have one right after the other with efficacy rates in the 90% is just phenomenal. You guys are still in the process here on the US side. The numbers have come from the UK side here today. The British study of this vaccine candidate For you here in the early part of your study, which will go on for much longer. Now what have you seen And how has your process gone? People are incredibly enthusiastic. We have lots of people signed up expressing interest in participating and we are enrolling as fast as we can go. The U. S. Has enrolled, probably approaching around 10,000 people to the U. S study, which is anticipated. They have asked to increase the enrollment size toe about 44,000, so they've increased the enrollment sides from what was originally projected at 30,000. Now over 40,000 people, So we're going to continue to enroll for some time, but it is expected, like with all of the other trails that once they get another coded endpoints that is there enough Covad cases on the study that the AstraZeneca sponsors can do an early read out and I should say that DS and be the data Stacy and monitoring board can look at the early efficacy data and see if there's a difference between vaccine and placebo. It is anticipated that the U. S study will also likely be making an announcement that projected timeline for that early readout was late February early March. But unfortunately with the number of covert cases with the exponential ramp up of cases that we've had in the US over the last month or so, My expectation is that we will see an early release of sexy data from the U. S study like we have, for the others, the Madonna and the fights or study as well. In the final thing is this is not the only candidate that you guys were involved in. You guys were involved with Madonna. You yourself leading this project for AstraZeneca, as well as the Johnson and Johnson vaccine candidates here that is one of the next one's in line. What's your time? Like like for that? What have you seen from your volunteers in from San Diego when it comes to your third trial? Yeah. The third trial. The Johnson of Johnson and Johnson trial is also ongoing. Also enrolling very quickly. Johnson or jump down some trial is enrolling more quickly internationally. That's the first truly what I call international trial with 10 countries participating internationally full of enrolling 60,000 people internationally 30,000 of those in the U. S and 30,000 extra us. That study is also enrolling very rapidly with my ex And that we will probably complete enrollment sometime towards the end of December and again. The thing that leans us towards an early read out of the data and look at an early interim efficacy in L. A. This isn't the number of cases that we have in this country. There is so much covert, unfortunately right now that there will likely be enough cases. That we may, in fact, have an early read out of that study as well. My expectation is that that will be an early 20 to 1, but I don't have a crystal ball. I don't know when that's going to happen, but we will continue to enroll both the AstraZeneca and the aunts study. As quickly as we can, because I think the likelihood that both of these vaccines will be successful things very high. Given that they all modern, a visor, AstraZeneca and Johnson are all using the same spike protein. As the immunity Jin as the targets to elicit an immune response.

New York City to Close Public Schools Again as Virus Cases Rise
"I was in New York City. Public schools shut their doors today because of the 3% positivity rate. As we've been discussing the Nassau and Suffolk County executives are both strongly disagreeing with Mayor De Blasio is decision to do that and to use that threshold. Positivity rate in National County is 3.5% even higher and Suffolk, But Nassau County executive Laura Current is leaving school closures up to the 56 local school district's in the county and says she would only order a Countywide closure if they hit 9%. That's the state standard three times the threshold the city is using. Talk about that and more now with Nassau County executive Laura current. She also has an article in New York magazine called Held Long Island County fought Covert. 19, a county executive looks back at the first wave. Executive Current. Always good to have you on Welcome back to W N. Y C. Good morning, Brian. And thank you very much for having me back. So, your statement says, Quote I strongly disagree with Mayor De Blasio is decision to close down schools in New York City. I want to make clear to our residents that I will do everything I can to keep our schools open, unquote. Why criticize the mayor by name there rather than just make your own decision for Nassau County. Well, I felt it was important, since this is really dominating the news cycle and, of course, New York City News really dominates the news in the suburbs. I just wanted to make it very clear to our residents. That the safest place for kids right now is in school. The schools, you know, it's a little bit different in Nassau County. So in the city, the mayor is in charge of the schools. Out here in Nassau County. We have 56 independent school district with their own elected boards. They make their own policy and make their own decisions, of course, with guidance from the state. Um, but my goal is to make sure that our health department, our county Health department Is working with them, helping interpret the guidance, helping them with contact tracing etcetera, and we've made very good relationships. So my goal is to get the word out there that it's very important for kids to stay in school right now. As I said, it's the safest place for kids are 56 school districts have really and I have kids in public school myself. They've done a fantastic job at this social distancing and ensuring math compliance and having kids on alternate days and all of that. They've really recalibrated quickly, and we're not seeing transmission within the school buildings. So you know, you did mention where a 3.5 yesterday. Our latest number was 3.3% that is concerning because we had been down it around 1% positivity rate, but the uptick isn't happening in the schools. It's not happening in the businesses and the gyms and the bowling alleys. It's really happening at these social gatherings, and I know that a lot of people have Covad fatigue. But people are still having these sweet sixteens and going off to other states to have big weddings and then coming back. That's where we're seeing the uptick. So I'm saying to everyone in the You can hear my voice. If you know you're not worried about yourself. You're not worried about your family. Think about the kids who need to be in school. Think about the businesses that need to operate. Keep people working. And, um, you know, as I said, school is safe right now, and I'm closing schools should be a last resort. That's what the CDC Protocol say in anything like a flu like pandemic Closing schools is the last resort. In March. It made sense.

This isn't a house because they don't want people going back to work. They want, so they want to convince people that they never have to work again. They want to convince people that socialism is easy. You just get up. And cash your government check and is more than many of you will ever earn in your lifetimes. And you don't ever have to go to work. You don't ever have to try to get a job You don't ever have to get fired. Just let us Democrats take care of you. Finally, once and for all, that's what they're trying to accomplish here. It's not just give people enough money to keep them unemployed through November. And to keep them from demanding the economy re opened there trying to convince people that socialism is something that it isn't It's endless money, No matter how much you need, the government will have it for you. Because at some point this has gone all implode on itself. At some point. I don't know when Inflation is gonna happen, and the dollar's gonna be worth 60 cents compared to what it's worth today. There's no way we've printed $6 trillion in covert 19 relief legislation just in the past four months. There's nothing backing it up. We just printed it. And it's something and neither party cares about it from us. From a spending standpoint, from a responsibility standpoint, both parties were looking at it purely from a political standpoint, in the politics of it. Give people something and they will love you give people something and they will vote for you Give so the race now is who can give people the most And even at that the Republicans are proposing a $1 trillion package. This is what they were meeting with the president about that in the Oval Orifice, the Republican package that they want to extend Is a trillion dollars, and it's being called cutthroat and minimal and good Lord a trillion dollars minimal. Our values have suffered such a blow entity, right? Republicans are literally trying. To come up with a package that does not pay people. Enough that it offers a disincentive to work. We need people going backto work, folks, the economy is not going to grow. In substantive terms. If it's the result of government printing money that it doesn't have and sending it to people, there will be some consumer spending, obviously, and that that will cause Some economic activity, but it isn't going to result in any productivity. The money people are getting is not going to be Paid to them because they've done work and have earned it. It's just a welfare transfer payment with nothing backing it up. As such. There isn't going to be any genuine economic growth attached to it can't be the government's having to print the money to get it. It's not like it exists somewhere and we're going to go get it from somewhere and transferred. We don't have it. Three trillion one trillion. We don't have it. But at one trillion the amount of relief that people get will not be enough to enable him to sit around watching Netflix all day. They'll have to go back to work and we need people. Back to work. That's the only way the economy is going to begin legitimate growth. And returning to where it wass. The Republicans, including Trump have been operating on the assumption of people want go back to work. I did too. I did, too. I thought after a month of this, people will be clamoring to get back to work back to their businesses back too.

To make it look like they don't want to take money away from people, so maybe they agree that 80% or 75% whatever it is the Republic what the Democrats are proposing. Because the politics of this sadly is Democrats. Just think that we want to give you enough that you don't have to worry about a job.
