Congress passes massive COVID relief and government funding bill
"The new nine hundred billion dollar coronavirus relief package includes a range of measures to help the country through the pandemic among them. A second round of stimulus payments for american households treasury secretary steven mnuchin said that we should start seeing payments in bank accounts early next week but it seems like this is on track to happen relatively quickly even faster than Than last time. Coming up our tax reporter. Richard rubin will explain what's changed since the last round of checks went out plus our reporter andrew dern. We'll take us through the parts of the aid package benefiting unemployed workers and those facing possible eviction. It's after the break. Us households along jobless americans and renters struggling to make payments are all in line for some relief. The nine hundred billion dollar corona virus aid package. We'll talk about unemployment and rental assistance with a reporter andrew during later in the show. But first let's bring in our tax reporter. Richard rubin from more on the new random direct payments that. Come with the package richard. Thanks for being with us. Happy to do it. So first of all. Who's in line to get a check this time. So the checks are going to largely the same group as got checks the first time around in the spring. There's some slight changes in eligibility with the basics are the same. It's anyone who's got income for an individual up to seventy five thousand. Get the full payment for married couples. One hundred and fifty thousand have to have a social security number Children are eligible but there are no payments for non child dependence so in college students or elderly adults who are dependents. You can get a payment even if you have no income and if you're or if you have social security or veteran's benefits or any of those kinds of things you're eligible. The one big eligibility change is what we call mixed status families household where one spouse has a social security number in the other spouses maybe unauthorized immigrant and doesn't Social security number in the first round they were ineligible and this time they are actually retroactively eligible for the payment. Just for the one spouse in any children who have social security numbers so you report. The stimulus checks could go out next week. That seems like a faster turnaround than the last time right. Yeah and somebody's because of the work they did. Last may have the file basically the computer files load up with the right number six hundred dollars per adult six hundred dollars per child and send the money to bank accounts and they've got more bank information than they had in the spring because of people who don't typically filed tax returns but updated their information with the irs treasury secretary. Steve mnuchin said that we should start seeing payments in bank accounts early next week but it seems like this is on track to happen relatively quickly even faster than Than last time. Now how about people who prefer to receive a paper check so they would get it a little bit later. We're still trying to figure out exactly how long that would take. The legislative text of the bill seems to suggest that payments will be done by january fifteenth. And then any one who hasn't received one by then basically can claim it as part of their twenty twenty tax return. So that's one thing that we're kind of looking for some additional clarity on as we go forward here is exactly how this would work for people who might need a paper jacket. Might be that end up getting it on your As part of your tax return okay. So you report. The checks are based on household data from two thousand nineteen. But what if someone's family size change since. The last checks went out in the spring. So that's where the fact that all gets reconciled them. The twenty twenty tax return is important. But it's a one way reconcilable so if you had a child anytime in two thousand and twenty. They wouldn't have been reflected on the first payment or the second one. And so you would get eleven hundred extra as part of your tax refund or lowering your tax payment when you file your twenty twenty tax return the other reason you might see some people changes is if your income went down say you earned one hundred thousand twenty nine thousand nine but then your income went down so you qualify for more for the full payment for twenty twenty. Then you'd be able to claim that on on your tax return but the keeping it doesn't go the other way if your income went up to go out of the rain or any payment the you don't have to pay that back any payment you got. You don't have to pay back if you're if you're eligibility either. In terms of income dependence changes between the time of the payment of the time you value tax return. All right. That's tax reporter richard rubin. The relief package also includes measures to assist jobless. Americans and renters could be facing eviction of the end of the month for more on that we've got reporter. Andrew durham on the line from washington andrew. Thanks for taking the time to be with us. Yeah thanks for having me so this is definitely good. News for people receiving unemployment benefits. How do the numbers stack up for them. So yeah there. There's a few measures in this bill. That will help folks who are on unemployment insurance the probably the biggest one is that people who are receiving unemployment insurance right now. We'll get an additional three hundred dollars per week from the federal government so it will just increase the size of the assistance for for people who are receiving State unemployment payments other measures in. There is that it extends to other unemployment programs by eleven weeks so one of the things that are two of the things that congress did earlier this year when they first started passing relief legislation for covid nineteen is they expanded the number of people who can claim unemployment benefits to include a gig workers contract workers and freelance workers folks like that who don't typically qualify and then they also extended the timeline for state unemployment benefits so that they lasted an additional set a time and so the total time line for folks who could for receiving state unemployment benefits now Thirty nine weeks and so this bill adds onto that even further so that that that number thirty nine weeks now becomes fifty so folks who were facing the possibility of having their unemployment benefits ending In the coming week here we'll now have another eleven weeks to to draw from those benefits and the clock's ticking from any renters. A lot of them have been struggling to make payments and faced possible eviction at the end of the month when some federal protections expire head. Us a covid bill address that so it does too big things for renters in the bill. First of all it gives a twenty five billion dollars in rental assistance. That's that's aimed at kind of low income americans to help them try and cover rent in the first place but then on top of that it extends conviction moratorium which has been in place for much twenty twenty-eight it extends out for another month so that will now last it was it was set to end at the end of this month but it will now end and at the end of january so those are the two those are the two main things got folks who are worried about paying. Rents will be able to count on now
FDA announces advisory committee meeting to discuss Moderna vaccine candidate
"The us food and drug administration says it has scheduled a meeting of its vaccines and related biological products. Advisory committee for december seventeenth to discuss the request for emergency use authorization for covid nineteen vaccine from biotech company dern so this is the second one second company that's now asked for emergency authorization california. The state expects receive about three hundred and twenty seven thousand doses of pfizer's cove nineteen vaccine by mid december and a second within three weeks according to gavin newsom. He declined at that point though to give an exact date. Those doses are to be expected now. Recommendations on how to distribute the first doses of the vaccine will be made this week as guidelines on how exactly to prioritize distribution are being drafted. Now the state's task force is also working on the challenge of keeping the vaccines at an ultra low temperature which has been a problem to this point. But they're working on it. Decision makers are looking at the plan with a specific ion equity.
Moderna to seek FDA emergency authorization for COVID-19 vaccine
"We're hurtling toward. What may well be a horrible and deadly holiday season as cova cases numbers and hospitalizations. Continue to reach alarming highs over ninety thousand. People are currently hospitalized in the us according to the cova tracking project that's compared to the previous high of about sixty thousand in the spring and summer. So more by half just terrifying. We're also moving quickly towards something that looks like hope to vaccines yesterday. Dern submitted its vaccine for fda authorization aaron. What's the latest on that. Well akilah thanks to the incredible work of scientists and researchers. We've now got to vaccines that. Could start to be distributed to americans within days or weeks maderna's mentioned and pfizer which submitted a couple of weeks ago. As soon as the fda reviews and approves either one for emergency use people can start lining up to get poked. Yeah i am also in line to get poked but as you've been talking about on the show with this first round vaccines were not going to have enough for everybody all at once and we don't have one official plan for who gets to be at the front of the line. That's why the cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices or ac ip is having an emergency meeting today hammer out some guidelines for states on who gets there. Kobe shot i. Yeah so what do we know about their thinking. Well much to the chagrin of the kardashians in everybody who would love to feel just a little more normal by having a massless dance party on a private island. The vaccine will not be distributed based on how many instagram followers. You have or even whether your father invented the toaster strudel I'm really bummed. I that's my dad. I know. I know grudging wieners. The has already decided that the first people in line should be healthcare workers and people who live in long term care facilities like nursing homes according to dr kathleen dueling medical officer at the cdc staff and residents at these facilities have accounted for almost forty percent of all deaths from covid nineteen even though there are less than one percent of the total us population if you add healthcare workers and people who live and work at long term care facilities. That's about twenty four million people even with fda approval and firing on all cylinders. There will only be about forty million vaccine doses available by the end of this godforsaken year and both cohen. Vaccines require two shots. Which means that those forty million doses will be barely enough to meet the needs of the very neediest in this group. Yeah and then. It starts to get a little bit trickier when you get into the other. Essential workers and people with high risk medical conditions. Or you know older people right. So according to the cdc there about eighty seven million essential workers one hundred million high risk adults and fifty three million people sixty five years of age or older. And of course there's some overlap between these categories. These are the people that would be prioritized next but as you can see there are a lot of them if all goes well you could see fifty million more doses ready to go in january another sixty million in february or march doing math divided by to carry the one that means about seventy five million people could be vaccinated against covid nineteen by the end of the first quarter of twenty twenty one which means the more people who are at an elevated risk from covid. Then there will be vaccines and there will not be enough vaccines to reach herd immunity at first and it's going to be a while before we get there and so this is just guidance. According to current lame duck secretary of health and human services. Alex as our love connick guy. Lame duck state governments will ultimately determine how the vaccine will be distributed. But who knows if that assertion will hold after biden takes office on january twentieth knows. Well it's a little bit of an elephant in the room. Here you know. America has a long history of ignoring the needs of and in some cases actively hurting the health of marginalized groups like indigenous americans living on reservations. Black people hello Non native english speakers people experiencing homelessness and the mentally ill among other groups. So how can we be sure that the cova vaccine will just pass them over. That's a really important question akilah. I'm sure there are already rich and powerful people trying to figure out how to skip the line. There's nothing more american than that but the acp seems determined to make sure americans have faith in the fairness of this process. All of their meetings are live streamed. So if you're looking for something to do today you can go ahead and livestream. The meeting in all the votes are public. The fda has also having meetings on vaccines on december tenth and seventeenth. This whole process depends on the public trusting the vaccine enough to let somebody shoot two doses of it into their arms and it seems like so far at least the folks in charge are taking that responsibility seriously and all this is happening with derna advisor will still be gathering more data and monitoring for adverse effects as the first groups of people get vaccinated and then the companies will have to go through the normal. Fda approval process as well. This first round of approval is a fast track process. So getting back to normal isn't site kind of if you squint. It's not that far. It's right there it's kind of kind of. Let's put it this way between now and when everybody who needs to be vaccinated is vaccinated. You'll definitely have time to relearn that foreign language tried to learn in high school and if mostly forgotten about by now
Americans Could See First Batch of Vaccines By Mid-December
"The nation's governors are being told to expect the first doses of a covert nineteen vaccine to arrive in their states by the middle of next month Ohio governor Republican Mike DeWine announced that after discussions with the White House Ohio could see its first batch of thousands of vaccine doses by December fifteenth with fresh supplies arriving every few days after that he says Ohio will first get visors formulation and then the vaccine developed by mo Dern coming none too soon with virus cases skyrocketing help is on the way governor Jay Inslee a Democrat in Washington state says he's hearing December fifteenth two that is not going to be available to you know the majority of Washingtonians for some time after that it will be into the next year the plan is to start with health care workers and nursing home residents people who are frequently exposed to the virus as well as teachers and those with medical issues that put them at high risk I'm Jackie Quinn
Covid Milestones: Eli Lilly CEO on Antiviral Approval & Pfizers FDA Application
"Corona virus cases are hitting new highs in the united states and the cdc is urging the country to keep thanksgiving celebrations small. The recommending americans spend the holiday only with people who've been living in their households for the last fourteen days which means no military personnel. Who plant to come home and no college students back from campus. And this week amid it. All california governor gavin newsom issued a curfew between ten pm and five am for all nonessential work and gatherings in most of the state and the order will remain in place until at least december twenty first perhaps even longer but some good news today as well visor and its partner. Biontech are submitting their obligation to the fda for emergency use authorization of their covid nineteen vaccine. This would be the first covid vaccine that goes through the regulatory process. Here's becky the fda's review process is expected to take a few weeks. Advisory committee meeting on the vaccine is tentatively scheduled for early next month. If it's approved some americans could get their first doses in just about a month's time earlier this week study. Data analysis showed this vaccine to be ninety five percents effective and that's incredibly impressive. Let's bring in meg. Terrell she's got more on this good morning. Good morning becky moving incredibly fast and a really historic milestone this morning the first vaccine to go to the fda for covid nineteen to try to stop this pandemic. So we're going to see this regulatory process. Really play out over the coming weeks. We should here typically the way this works is the company alerts the world when the fda has accepted an application and set a date to decide on the drug. We're in a pandemic of course so those dates are not going to be normal. And the communications might be different to we. Might hear from the fda Either the decision timing that they might be looking at and especially about when they're gonna set that advisory committee meeting to discuss this vaccine. That's when outside advisers get together dig apart all of the data around The vaccine the safety the efficacy the manufacturing and talk about also how this should potentially be approved for the market. And it's possible. We will see an application from dern. They said within weeks So we should see that soon. Too and so the expectation that i heard was that the fda had asked those outside advisors to set aside december eighth ninth and tenth three days to potentially discuss. Both vaccines Now dr john taurus from nbc had the fda commissioners steven hahn said scott gottlieb. Stephen hawking on with him yesterday in a facebook live. He asked him about those dates. Any no he said. The fda was going to be flexible. He wouldn't confirm that they had asked them to set those dates. And so we have been hearing since we reported those dates a lot of people sort of saying. Why is this going to take so long So we will have to wait to see what the empty actually does In terms of scheduling that meeting. They do need time to go through the application themselves very carefully. Prepare the documents the committee and then the committee will discuss it and we do expect the fda decide extremely quickly after that meeting Whether to green light this market and then pfizer in biontech. Say they are ready to go within hours after that That green light to start shipping. This guy's yeah. That was one of the things that really caught my attention this morning. The idea that within hours they'd be ready to start shipping vaccine and getting it out there and that brings up the question of how we do that. How do we distribute this. Where does it go. How do we determine who gets it. I never the states have been working on plans along with the federal government to try and figure out how much each state would get. But how does it work. We do even know. Do we have a real game plan for who gets what. When and how we know part of that. So operation warp speed an eighty just secretary alex as are held. A briefing about those plans are earlier. This week And essentially what would happen after. The fda gives the green light if it does then. The cdc has an advisory committee as well that would meet to make recommendations about. Who should get this vaccine. I if there are two vaccines if there are any differences in them you know which groups should get which dosing of that stuff So that's expected to happen extremely quickly. And then the cdc makes recommendations about how much each state should get Secretaries are based on population. We also know of course that because supply will be so limited that there are going to be prioritized groups. Healthcare workers are expected to be at the top People with underlying health conditions that make them more severe. More vulnerable to severe disease will also be at the top so We'll see how that gets allocated to the states based on what. The group recommends
Moderna: Covid vaccine shows nearly 95% protection
"While the bar very high for madonna coming into this week after five ninety percent efficacy result for its vaccine last week. The dern meant that far ninety four and a half percent advocacy shown its phase three trial at that interim look now. They saw no significant safety issues in the trial and they said they were going to seek the fda's emergency use authorization within the coming weeks now. We just talked with. Dr mon sat slough. Who's been leading the vaccine and drug development as part of operation warp speed about the significance of this moment to vaccines in a row. This high level of efficacy. Here's what he said. It is an extraordinary outcome. Frankly to have two different vaccines tested in different conditions. By two different companies developed independently yield very similar outcomes gives a huge confidence into the data obtained and really suggest that the ninety percent and more efficacy is is true and real but of course melissa as we're getting this extremely good news it comes at a time in the pandemic never been seeing more daily cases We're seeing one hundred and forty thousand a day on average right now and we're seeing more and more people go into the hospitals. Well currently sixty nine thousand people hospitalized with covid nineteen. The numbers of deaths in the united states have started increases. Well now we're at a seven day average but seven hundred deaths per day and most of public health. Experts are very worried about next week when a lot of folks are set to travel and get together around the thanksgiving holiday so monsef slowly saying these vaccines are showing great results but until we get them. We get enough for everybody which we early to mid next year. We need to show resilience right now. Well i don't think there's a coincidence. Seeing the spike a couple of weeks after halloween they probably happened because of parties etc gatherings but but megan terms of the differences between the vaccines and the trials. Themselves was moved his trial. Did it include a broader sample of people in terms of older people. More racially diverse. They made a big big effort to include more racially diverse populations. They certainly did. And even at one point said that they were slowing their enrollment in the trials to make sure that they included people of diverse backgrounds and particularly people who because of their their jobs are more at risk of getting the disease but both companies made a big effort to enroll diverse populations and older populations. We didn't get to see the data on pfizer's yet in older people and people of diverse backgrounds dern did present some data there. We don't have enough to make strong conclusions but it did suggest with only five infections in the entire trial and more people who are over sixty-five or had diverse backgrounds who were among those who got infected in the trial suggested there only sorry five on on the vaccine who who got infected so anyway. The split indicates it's probably protective across groups. Yeah and for for moderna men. There were other drugs in the pipeline for that company based on this technology. Correct so i would imagine that. This is giving investors more hope that the other parts of their franchise are actually going to work. Yeah the dern has been around for ten years and they've been working on many different vaccines and other therapeutic areas but this one just of course leapfrogged everything else and made them a commercial company if they get. Fda's go ahead later this year so much sooner than they expected and so they've got vaccines for other diseases. They're starting to work on flu. And so this is very validating and they see this as of course a huge day for the company in addition to this huge day in trying to stop this
Loved Labours won: landslide in New Zealand
"This weekend New Zealand's Labour Party swept to a fairy-tale victory stunned. Prime Minister. Justin. The are dern beamed as a rapturous crowd applauded beginning her speech with a thankful molly reading. In. In tongue it Athena what? dern promised a big tent kind of administration. For every New Zealand has never been so important more than it has been now. We living in an increasingly polarized world a place where more and more people have lost the ability to see one. Another's point of view having come in for criticism during the campaign on failing to address housing shortages and poverty. She acknowledged there were difficulties ahead. Over the next three years. There is much to do. We will build back better from the covert crisis. Stronger. With an answer to the mini challenges New Zealand. Already faced. Challenges or no the scale of the win came as a surprise even to her supporters. The easiest way of describing is that it was unparalleled in modern history. I wonder why it had Austrailia and correspondent say the Labor Party which has just endured dance policy one, forty, nine percent of the and that was compared to nearly twenty seven percent for the main opposition, which is called the national policy, which is conservative that is the best result Labor's result for any policy since the fifties and it gives it a majority of seats in parliament, and that is the first time that any he's been. Able to govern on its own underneath. Zealand. System of proportional representation which has been in place since one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, they were winning in both provincial rural conservative strongholds, ondon rich city areas, and to give sense New Zealanders vote for both the preferred party and an MP on their ballots and labor top the preferred party votes in sixty eight of its seventy constituencies really astounding result for them and what was the the campaign like De Campaign was focused on pretty much only one subject which was the government's response to the coronavirus. It was really a referendum on how the government and I think in voters is particularly prime minister has responded to the virus that response was to shut down the borders, I to China, and then to the rest of the world and then to rally support. For, what was a very, very strict lockdown in New Zealand at the beginning of the pandemic and say, Bara brief surges pretty much. Succeeded I. Need Twenty Five people have died and that was really what the campaign focus on the fact that life has been able to return and roughly to normal people are eating out people cramming into restaurants and their normal numbers. Forty six thousand people watching rugby match against Australia, this weekend. So the campaign was very much focused on that response and the opposition kind of found it quite difficult. See Find Ground on which to oppose the government, and so the scale of that result then is just a reflection of how satisfied everyone has been with the response to the pandemic. That is the singular issue of its left remembering that before the pandemic hits. Labor a was looking the polls. The suggesting that Labor was on track to lose. This election would have been a one term government, which is not very common in New Zealand central a being. Overseas particularly, for the way that she responded to the Christ church terrorist attacks, they were much last year when these two mosques were attacked by a white supremacist and she was obviously hailed. The way she united New Zealand does after that and staunchly defended immigrants but adulation wasn't really reflected back at home until the pandemic has. So was this a vote for her or a vote for the Party and it's I think it's got to be with her and not a great deal to do with the Party and its policies. So it was a campaign that was thin on policy on both sides update from national and Labour but I think it was a set of referendum on the prime minister's response. To the coronavirus even historisches appointment submit that she's a very gifted communicator particularly in times of crisis and young people particularly look to her. She has a kind of unpretentious approachability that I think that a lot of Kiwis light and political analysts in New Zealand will say that it's very much a politics of personality though she wasn't always popular home as she was overseas. I, think that Kiwis do derive a kind of sense of pride from hug label standing as well. So in a way that has served her well at home. Speaking to damage he said that her brilliant lies in the way she plays into their sense of exceptionalism. In key, we always liked to think that set apart by more than their geography and they punch above that waits. But what about apart from the personality and crisis management and so on. What about sort of kitchen table politics? This is. Just. On the Labor government comes in for a lot of criticism because when she came to power in two thousand seventeen. Labor was making a lot of very lofty promises to do things like reduce child poverty it was going to end homelessness in New Zealand. It was going to build one hundred thousand affordable houses in ten years. Of generally make New Zealand to Faira Besser country and it's pretty much failed to deliver on every single one of those things. The Prime Minister's critics point out that almost counts of poverty and social inequality museum and actually heading quits. Houses are increasing at the moment in New Zealand increasing through the crisis. So this is a big big criticism of her detractors that she is a great at moving motivational speeches, but quite a poor Administra- certain hasn't actually got much done. So that might explain why this time around the world kind of such lofty promises it was rather more timid. But. She's still got a strong base of support is on the left who are GonNa be expecting her to do a lot more particularly now she's not in. She's she's not having to form a coalition particularly now that she can govern on her own and so to your mind the the big difference then between the first term and this coming second term is that she that Labour will be governing alone. Is the big difference with governing Elaine comes a lot more responsibility. There is still a chance that Labor form some kind of coalition with the Greens will they. They don't need. Them might be handy have degrees inside the government say they're not handling the sidelines said that could either be a formal coalition or a more informal arrangement in which the Greens folks with Labor early onset issues. So a much stronger position on a lot more pressure within this time around. But what about fulfilling all those promises in light of the economic situation? I mean new. Zealand certainly must have suffered economically from the pandemic if not quite so much as elsewhere in terms of the human cost, it is in a recession. Now the economy is going to contract by about six percent. This year unemployment is rising the wage subsidy that is coming off. So Wild New Zealand has done very well at keeping the virus out there going to be lots more questions about what that has caused it, and how it is going to drive a recovery how it's going to get out of that mess. The Prime Minister says that there is a plan for recovery which includes things like building lots of roads but to her pregnancy looks quite incremental. They out there in no big plans for tax reform for example of just third some income tax hikes. But only on the talk to percent of workers say theoretically might think that with such strong majority, they pressure more radical agenda but there are many people in New Zealand see that. So to be so popular, you've got to be fairly uncontroversial owner. Thank you very much for joining us. Thanks, Jason.

Boston - Springfield Detective Fired After ‘Hurtful’ Anti-Police Social Media Post
"Protests in recent weeks have revealed tensions between police and the black lives matter movement. An incident in Springfield reported this morning underscores that tension on May thirtieth a detective in the Springfield Police Department posted a picture on Instagram of her knees. Holding a sign at a black lives matter rally in Atlanta. It drew criticism from officers in her department. Mass live reports. The detective was fired on June nineteenth by Springfield Police Commissioner Cheryl Clap route. The former detective joins us now from Springfield flonaise. Welcome to Radio Boston. Thank you. Can you bribery? So flourish, so your story was first reported by mass. Live in Springfield Republican reporter Stephanie Berry, I wonder. Can you walk us through what happened beginning with? What was the picture? And why did you post it? Yes on the. Post and was a photo of my niece and her friend protesting the killing of toward floyd on the protests took place in Atlanta Georgia. On my niece and her friend, holding signs one of the signs read. Who Do you call when the murderer? Where's badge and the sign that my niece was holding? said shoot the F. Back. Okay. That content could be considered threatening. You acknowledge that the posting could be considered hurtful or threatening to fellow officers. Did you think about that when you posted it? I mean it could be construed as threatening to you as a police detective is well. I didn't take the polls. Have be an anti COP You know when I. When I shared the Post I, Think about how others would perceive it, at no point that I share that post with malicious intent just so you know supporting my niece and her right to a practice her first amendment. So then what happened floor? So you posted it? What did you hear from Your Department from other officers? What happened next? So after share in the post a few hours later, I received messages on on social media. Phone calls text messages. From some of my officers who express their concerns They said that they don't look good that it looked like an anti Kat post once I realized that I had offended some of my fellow officers I immediately deleted the post and I apologize to those who had reached out to me, and I also think them for you know looking out for me. I. Know that right now. At that time, emotions were very high, or all the officers with everything that was going on, not protest that was happening throughout the country. the following day I received a phone call from direct captain before he could explain himself I explained that I why he's calling me but at no point did I share that pulse with malicious intent or Ernie intent to harm or fund any of my fellow officers but the captain stated that the Commissioner was highly upset. She was embarrassed and then I did express the him that I understand How she you know. She could be embarrassed in offended especially after she honored hardship for me, the Commissioner has done a lot for me. All my career my one year career in the in the department. Excuse me. On the day after the phone call with the captain, I met with the Commissioner Commissioner Clap. there was a few deputies in the office as well a few captains, and I went in with my us union present Joe Gentile. in the meeting the Commissioner. basically told me that you know I embarrassed her and that she was highly upset with me. Especially after honoring to hardship, I apologize to her and I and I told her that I understand where my fellow officers are coming from, but at no time did I post that with militias and another time? did I think that might be as anti cop. I told her that I. You know I. Should apologize to all the officers. I'm sorry till the up to supervisors who advocates for me? I think that they deserve an apology from embarrassing and she went on to tell me that people had called up to the. Commissioner's Office and And when I see people I, mean my officers and they were upset and they wanted me terminated She did say that she thinks very highly of me in the. She didn't want to terminate me and then you'd have to figure out a way to fix this. after I left that meeting I consulted with my union president Joe Gentile. after control than what time we both agree that it'd be a good idea to go on a local high bdo. IBP Oh page. And, put up. The public apology to my fellow officers I put up the apology later that day and once I put up the apology I had a few officers that you know basically told me it's okay. No where he's. We all make mistakes. you know we. We have to stick together. Then received a lot of insults and threats on there as well. I'm sorry to interrupt you I know there's a little more to this story, and I do want to give you a chance to tell it, but I need to clarify a couple of things that you've already said. You said that the commissioner said to fix it in the mass live reporting today. She denied that she had said fix. It had a quote that said quote. Once you post something. It's out there and you can't retract it. That post was hurtful to many of her co-workers. What do you make of the dispute between your sense that she told you to fix it and her saying, but that is not what she said. I'm when I was in that meeting. I recall those words like he needs to figure out fix this. and I remember being. Sorry go ahead. No no, that's okay. Finish your thought, please. I'm I'm commenting on that? Okay, also, you said that the commissioner honored hardship for you. Some of our listeners may not know what that means. Can I please ask you to explain that? I'm so dern. The pandemic the kits for being home schooled and I. also have my father who has cancer that I for so i. Put it in a re. I spoke with my captain I was on the midnight shift. I was working twelve eighty a And I wrote up a hardship after consulting with the CAP, and he told me to put in a hardship I wrote to the Commissioner asking to go back to four to twelve as a patrol officer. And in order for me to homeschool my three children and look after my father. a few days later. She authored my hardship while I'm and. Threw me in the TV as a FDU detective. So made you a detective? Yes, Ma'am! Okay thank you now after you posted the apology, you got mixed results or responses from that my apology, my understanding was ultimately you withdrew the apology. You then later were part of a larger picture that was taken of the force, and then on that same day. Receive News that you could either resign or be fired. Do I have those events correct? Yeah! And so the firing was about a week and a half ago. Yeah, it was on Friday to nine hundred. And did it come as a surprise to you on that day? Yes, it did after spoke with Some of the supervisors in the department. They had basically told me you know lay low. Just try to blend in you know, take this as a small bumping your career and a lesson learned and You know you'll get through this. Why do you think you were fired? At this point. You know I I am I don't know. Like the Commissioner as the Commissioner stated She was pressured by the mayor I think it was It was driven my politics but that's as far as I can comment on that. Were there discussions within the police force during the the weeks of the protests prior to you posting your Social Media Post. About the protests, the movements the discussions about police brutality. Were you talking with with fellow detectives or other officers about that? Did you have a sense of where they stood into? They have a sense of where you stood. I'm no. We didn't talk much about it I. Mean I had one one officer life spoke with that was very closely with in regards to the protest and I think we both stood in support of the black lives. Matter Movement. And other than that I. didn't I didn't really? Have conversations about the protests with other fellow officers. And after you posted your apology, why do you believe that some officers came back? with strong responses threatening language. I think is the term that you used it, Cetera. Why do you believe the apology was not sufficient to kind of to begin to heal the controversy around your post? I believe emotions are just very high at this time. You know like I can't tell you why they felt offended. again I had some even had some that some officers at attack me. Flirt so, we reached out to the Springfield police to either appear on the show or to provide comment commissioner share a clap route sent us a statement, said quote. This was Miss Fuentes a second infraction during her probationary period complaints about her social media posts came from co workers who were hurt by it, and questioned her stance on the quote that advocated shooting police officers. It was my decision to terminate her employment and quote. What does she mean by a second infraction?
Who Is Winning the COVID-19 Vaccine Race?
"New face on the race to develop a corona virus vaccine as cases surge in several states. Terrell joins us with the very latest. Hey, MEG! Hey, Melissa Will Sanofi providing an update on its plans today seeing now that it's program in porter ship with GlaxoSmithKline could be human clinical trials in September and potentially in a larger phase, three efficacy study by the end of the year or early twenty twenty one now that's still a few months behind where other companies are but Sanofi, CEO pointing out that their technology is one of the only ones that's proven in. In an approved vaccine, already have a flu vaccine based on this technology separately. They also have a partnership with translate bio, and you can see that stocks up forty seven percent today an expanded partnership. They're going to work together on other vaccines to not just the Cova vaccine, and that's an Mr platform similar to Madonna's, and that's a little bit further behind the GlaxoSmithKline Sanofi vaccine so Sanofi. They're having two different Cova. Tracks ongoing. Meanwhile, the first efficacy trials in the United States those thirty thousand person trials expected to start in July from dern and Pfizer AstraZeneca close on their heels, potentially starting July or August with their trial Johnson and Johnson expected in September and then of course as we mentioned gs K.. Sanofi at the end of the year, so these big companies all gearing up to start these large scale efficacy studies within weeks already. What is the earliest projection by accompany MAG for back backseat hitting the market or getting FDA approval? Well we've seen from some companies like Astra Zeneca. Could deliver this vaccine by October if things go well, FIS has made similar projections, but today Dr Fao. She was testifying on the hill. He reiterated the end of Twenty Twenty early twenty twenty one time line for the earliest, these vaccines could be ready. It's all going to depend upon the rate of infection. In these large-scale efficacy efficacy trials because the more infection there is the faster they will prove that they work
Dow Falls 400 Points As Questions Are Raised Over Moderna’s Coronavirus Vaccine
"Questions tonight about Madonna's vaccine sent stocks lower. But there are new signs tonight. The country is getting back to business BALDO session for Stocks Today. Stocks lose ground early to research how this as yesterday star becomes today's goat shares of Maduna tanking. Why is it that the federal government should be the source of this money? Plus IS AMERICA TURNING AGAINST OUR CITIES AS MORE COMPANIES? Allow working from home. What's the downside this? Cnbc special report markets in turmoil starts right now. Here's Scott Wapner. Welcome good to have you with us on this Tuesday night. After a late day SELLOFF. Let's get your first look at futures tonight. It was a sudden sell-off late in the day right now though. We are green across the board quite early as you know. Stock closing at their lowest following report by our partners at got news raising questions about trial results. From dern his vaccine candidate the Dow and S&P five hundred both falling more than one percent the headline from Staten News. That shook the markets today vaccine experts say modern. It didn't produce data critical to assessing Kobe. Nineteen vaccine for more on that report from Stat News. It did move the stock market. We are joined once again tonight by Dr Scott Gottlieb a CNBC contributor of course the former head of the FDA. Dr Gottlieb's good to see you again. What is your reaction to this news in this late day? Report from Stat. Well look I think. The report raised the reasonable questions. But I think the news is what it was which is the data from earners encouraging. There's now data. From multiple different vaccine development programs both preclinical and some clinical data suggesting that it's possible to develop vaccine constructs that produce genetically mean produce antibodies that could potentially be neutralizing against the virus and could afford some level of protection. But the data's very early we don't know what the title levels were for this vaccine for the antibodies produce so we don't know the magnitude the antibody production. We don't know whether or not all the antibodies were neutralizing. So that means whether or not they would actually target the virus and eliminate the virus. So there's a lot we don't know but the data was encouraging but it was early dated. I'm there's still a lot of work to be done including finding the right dose of that vaccine that could be taken into later stage trials and so you know I think the stat article raised all the reasonable questions. That was still out there yesterday as well but I think the totality of the data that we have around different vaccine contracts should give us increasing confidence that at some point in the future and perhaps in the near future going into the fall we should be able to develop experimental vaccines that will deliver some level of immunity against this virus. Some are asking the question tonight. Dr Gotlib whether this data should have been released at all by Madonna. And how would you answer that? Well look I'm not sure why they released. The data set the way they did and I suspect they felt compelled to release after there was some discussion of the data on Friday. Or perhaps of this data there was some discussion about data from an early trial on Friday. At a press conference that was held and if that was representing them returning data they may have felt compelled to release Monday morning but perhaps if they You know we had the opportunity to. They would have waited a little longer until they had data on all of the forty five patients. Whether or not they were producing neutralizing antibodies as well as quantitative data on the level of antibody production so they qualified the data to describe the level of antibody production that they saw the trial but they didn't quantify it and you would have wanted to see the quantity of the antibodies that were being produced really to have an accurate picture of just how robust the immune response was to this virus. I suspect that they didn't have a complete data set. They said at the time they disclosed that they only had data on the neutralizing antibodies. I eight patients so only had data on whether or not the antibodies are actually targeting limiting the virus on eight of the forty five patients for the patients. We know that they developed what we call binding antibodies. Anybody's abound the virus. But we don't know they eliminate the virus
Special Report | Markets in Turmoil: Healthcare & Reopening
"Day. One hundred twenty three of the corona virus crisis new information tonight on a key drug to fight the virus as the nation moves closer to reopening stocks are under pressure the best month for stocks since. Nineteen eighty-seven comes to an end but questions persist about the rally and our ability to stop the virus. What we found out is just a little piece of the puzzle. Also tonight when we take a step forward we don't want to take two steps back. One business owners plead to his State. We're not ready to reopen this. Cnbc special report markets in turmoil begins right. Now here's Scott Wapner. Welcome good to have you with us on this Thursday night after the biggest month for stocks in a decade. Let's get to our first look futures right now early but they are lower following lackluster earnings from some big tech names. After the bell today stocks were lower across the board the Dow losing nearly three hundred points but the real story was the month of April. The Dow gaining eleven percent S. and P. Five hundred almost thirteen percent. That was its best performance. Since nineteen eighty-seven you see the major averages putting in that mark tonight the Nasdaq adding more than fifteen percent. It's best month since June of the year. Two thousand there is also new information tonight and the path towards vaccine drug maker AstraZeneca teaming up with Oxford University information on phase. One of their testing is due very soon our farmer reporter make to route following the details for US tonight. High Bank Scott. Well it is. One of the most advanced vaccine programs in development fur-coated nineteen right now. Researchers at the University of Oxford started the first phase of human clinical trials last week and five different centers in southern England with data expected to be available next month. They say if all goes well a later stage trial could begin by the middle of this year. A key question for any successful vaccine though will be the ability to manufacture it at a large enough scale that is where a partner like Astra. Zeneca comes in under the agreement with Oxford. The British drugs giant will be responsible for development and worldwide manufacturing and distribution if the clinical trials. Prove that the vaccine works. Now it's not the only experimental vaccine already in human studies one from dern and the National Institutes of Health in the. Us began testing in healthy volunteers. In March well small biotech company and no view has also said it's begun tests. Several vaccines in China have also entered the first phase of human testing whilst Pfizer and bio tech began trials in Germany last week. And they're expected to start. Us trials imminently a key question for all these potential vaccines will be whether the course of the pandemic will enable efficacy to be proven. It often happens and outbreak scenarios that the science is too slow to keep up with the disease. Many times in the past outbreaks have subsided before a vaccine could be ready to be tested. The development and manufacturing of new drugs and vaccines is also an expensive endeavor and Gilead who's drug desa. There yesterday showed positive results in an NIH. Trial said it spent fifty million dollars on the drug in the first quarter and may spend up to a billion dollars this year. The company's pledged to donate it's available supply of the drug and hasn't commented on pricing plans. After that Daniel Day was asked on a conference call with analysts tonight. Why covert nineteen is different from other diseases? The company does profit from treating like HIV. Hepatitis and flew. There's been no other time like this in the history of the planet than any of us about live. In terms of the far-reaching reaching effects of this pandemic so medically from a patient perspective most importantly but also economically and so I think there is no guidebook out there. There is no rule book out. There and day will join us tomorrow morning to discuss that and more on squawk box Scott Meg. We'll look forward to that very much in the morning on squawk box. That's Meg Terrell reporting tonight on the money as always joining us now. Cnbc CONTRIBUTOR IS DR Scott Gottlieb. The former head of the FDA. Dr Dot leaves good to talk to you again. You must first your reaction to this story about Oxford and AstraZeneca teaming up good news. We're going to need more than one vaccine developer to be successful here and the fact that Oxford's teaming up with Astra Zeneca which has the ability to manufacture this product at scale. Because the big challenge here isn't just going to be demonstrating that these products are safe and effective and running the clinical trials but also engaging in a large scale manufacturing this can be required to produce these in quantities sufficient to provide them to an entire population. Astrazeneca has heft. They have that ability so this is a positive development. We need more than one vaccine developed. It'd be successful here. We need multiple vaccine to be successful across the world if we're GONNA have enough doses to supply the entire world and also the low and middle income countries that locked out of this race right now. There's a lot of exuberance last evening. Plenty of opportunity today for some maybe to walk back. Some of the expectations of having a vaccine ready as quick as some of the timelines have said through this operation warp speed for example though Dr Falcone this morning on the today show certainly didn't back down. Is it really possible to have a vaccine Dr Gotlib by January? Well we're probably GONNA have by January. Is Vaccines in sufficient quantities to run very large scale trials. So we have outbreaks in American cities. We'll be able to deploy thousands probably hundreds of thousands of vaccines in those cities. I run kind large trials that we're going to need to do to prove that these vaccines not just are effective. But that they're safe. In terms of having sufficient quantities to inoculate the entire population. That's really a twenty twenty one event and hopefully we'll we'll have it in time for twenty twenty one but it's unlikely to be available before the end of this year but we could have tens of millions of doses before the end of this year if you if you see multiple manufacturers being successful because each manufacturer could probably produce millions if not upwards of around ten million doses and so you have involved fires of the company that I'm involved with. You have a couple of small biotech companies engaged to no fee. Gsk's engaged now you have Astra Zeneca J. and J. Working on an ad no viral vaccine. These are large companies that know how to manufacture at significant scale overall. How would you describe your own level of optimism about where we are in our fight against this virus tonight? I'm very optimistic. And we're making very rapid progress and trying to drug this this virus and there's nothing particularly complex about a corona virus. That would suggest that. We're not going to be able to develop an effective therapeutic vaccine against it. We haven't had a vaccine against the corona virus before but we haven't tried really except for SARS emerge typically corona viruses caused common colds. And we haven't really sought vaccines for them. We already probably have one antiviral drug. That's effective not a home run but a drug that looks effective in severe. I think we're GONNA have antibody drugs by the fall. At some point this fall that starts to be the makings of a pretty potent toolbox. Those are the first generation products and so we'll see second and third generation drugs come online. The entire by pharmaceutical sectors really focused on this intently. And I think we're making very rapid progress and so I'm optimistic that we're going to have therapeutics. Never seen anything like it really. Let's move from Therapeutics and vaccines to talk about more reopenings Georgia now set to lift a most shelter in place restrictions tomorrow. Is that a good idea. Well look I think what's taking shape in this country is that we've reached a plateau in the number of infections at about thirty thousand a day. We're bouncing around. But is that about three thousand a day so you have to assume about three hundred thousand infections a day in this country because we're probably diagnosing one in ten infections to one in twenty infections and the number of deaths has plateaued as well. I think we're likely to bounce around on that plateau for a sustained period of time and the risk we face by reopening isn't necessarily that we have very rapid surge in infections and run into another epidemic but we never really snuff out the infections that we have smoldering infections all through the summer. And if that's the case if we continue to have three hundred thousand infections a day by the time you reach September first upwards of fifteen percent of the US population will have had corona virus. And so you starting to get pretty significant proportion of the population. I think that's the risk we face by some of the reopenings that we're seeing when you still see cases going up now Georgia. The cases are going down in recent days. But they're still not testing a lot and so you don't know how reliable those that data is but they haven't seen the kind of sustained declines that we've all said at the outset that you'd want to see to try to safely reopen an economy. We've had this conversation about Georgia. Numerous occasions you tweeted a few days ago that they were still having an epidemic there that cases were on the rise. Though I saw today you did say that. They've seen a big improvement. It seems like a fairly short period of time to have some level of improvement. No improvement was in the model that model that everyone looks at from Washington state and that model is just based on trends. And so what they're doing is they're looking at current trends fitting lines curves so they're trying to project from what the current trends are so. Georgia has shown in the last week of reduction in the number of new cases on a daily basis. Some events probably improvement some of. It's probably under testing Georgia ranks in the lower echelon of states in terms of the testing that. They're doing their population. So it's unclear whether or not the epidemic Israeli subsiding in that state. When you look across the country you see a lot of states probably about twenty five states. Where the epidemic is rising in terms of the number of new cases on a daily basis. So the number of cases being diagnosed on a daily basis is actually going up. Some of that's a function of the fact that we're testing a lot more so we're capturing more cases but some of it's also a function of our seeing expanding epidemics in a lot of states. Now that's said many of these states are states with a very low number of infections. So they're going from one hundred infections of data one hundred ten to one hundred twenty so they're not states that had a big epidemic to begin with but nonetheless it just shows that we're really not through the woods yet when it comes to this national epidemic New York showing a lot of improvement and that distorts the national figures but nationally. You still see a lot of states with a lot of spread. What do you think about New Jersey's plan to open golf courses and parks this weekend? Is that a good idea. I think it sound for the states to try to contemplate what they can do to give people a sense of normalcy again. And the first thing you can do is try to open back up. Recreational activity done outdoors. We know the risk of spread is lower. I've been advocating and talked to a number of local officials about the idea of trying to move things that are traditionally done indoors outdoors and so two extent that we want to restart religious services holding them outside. We want to restart gym classes holding those outside. Even as we contemplate reopening restaurants lifting local ordinances that make it easier to businesses to try to move some of that business outside maybe closing blocks and sectioned off more real estate more public real estate for businesses to try to open up at venues outside. That's not going to be foolproof but holding these things outside does reduce risk and. I think it's important that we try to start reintroducing activities that give people a sense of normalcy about their lives and the first thing to do really is to put the nets backup in parts. Let's let's finish by discussing the
Movie Theaters Are Still (Mostly) Open, But That Won’t Last
"It's been a devastating week for the entertainment industry as Kovic Nineteen forces to cancellation of public gatherings. All over the world. Movie theaters are struggling to cope with two major factors declining attendance and delayed film releases from Motion Picture Studios theaters around the globe have closed but major change like AMC and cinemark have not yet decided to close up shop here in the US. Here's John Horns discussion with senior film writer at Variety Matt. Donnelly one that we've been reporting on depicted but theaters will close regionally not a blanket. You know all the movie theaters in the country represented by trade group called NATO But we imagined that they'll they'll try to close out in pockets of the slow wave to get as much you know revenue as they can. Nato is the National Association of Theatre Owners and just a couple of days ago. They cancelled their annual convention which was scheduled for the end of the month in Las Vegas. The other factor is that a lot of major releases are being pulled from the calendar. Disney has pulled. Moulin the new James Bond Movies. Nocco come out the next fast and furious sequel. Fast Nine has moved to next year. There are a number of other movies that have been placed on hold. What kind of problems does that create for those theaters that remain open because it seems like a lot of the tentpole movies aren't going to get released? Yes the great question. I mean it doesn't incentivize an audience to brave public faces when you don't have really premium and exciting new films to show them and also let's talk about just the agrees Spending on marketing studios have already completed to promote rely on and stuff nine. They're looking at hundreds and millions of and across the board for movies that aren't going to hit theaters for another year or so. If movie theaters are considered dangerous or if they're actually closed might companies like Disney and. Maybe it's not move on. Maybe it's another movie down the line just get released on Disney plus or an equivalent streaming service. Do you think that is part of the potential conversation going forward I can tell you confidently that over the past month or so of all been you know? They won't dare speak out loud The strategy of going directly to digital. But don't forget that a lot of companies are publicly traded so they have an onus to create value for general that. They can't get their movie theaters. They might be obliged to release them through streaming for higher price point or just to incentivize customers to stay but yeah. I think absolutely this is the reason to To look at sort of Shattering will be called the traditional theatrical window. Which is where movie theaters get ninety days or exclusivity with all the movies that come out and then they moved down two places like streaming and on demand. I think he could absolutely see some of the mid range films. You take something like marbled new mutants which is Sort of young adults giving property. I don't think that anyone to expand that to blow minds in the movie theater. They could easily put that directly on Hulu wish neons and and see up taking subscribers just before we got on the phone. I looked at the stock of cinema world which runs Regal United Artists and Edwards Theatres. Its stock is down. Almost eighty percent in the last month compared to the overall market dropping about twenty-five percent cinemark another major chain has seen its stock dropped almost sixty percent and at the same time. Netflix is down just seventeen percent which is better than the overall market so it feels like Wall Street sentiment on the at least short term potential for exhibition is really grim and at the same time. A lot of movies in production are shutting down as well and that won't be felt for months if not a year down the line. Is that going to be a factor as well not just for exhibition but for streaming services? Yeah I mean we. We've been having conversations about e even take the last round of of film festivals that went up. Jones going distribution all the time to to places like Toronto telluride Sundance. I think the OC a spike in sales of those finished movies But they can put up on services today but in terms of original production places like netflix. Amazon impact will be dramatic. Episodes opened a brand new six down stage facility in New Mexico where they intended to shoot the stranger things that will be delayed. You're talking about like theory of Marquis Properties in the stream or so. I think there will be a bit of a shock to either licensed beloved prize old content to put on or a scramble to fine finish work. They can put up in the near term. It does feel like some smaller exhibition chains are trying to come up with creative solutions. Alamo Draft House said that it in its San Francisco Theatre. It's doing something where no more than two hundred people can be in the theater and it's GonNa ask people to kind of separate themselves from one another. It feels like an interesting idea. I don't know how sustainable it is. Are you hearing other things like that where people can buy seats and maybe block off the seats around them or is it just whatever you find when you get into the auditorium? I think you'll find a lot of people finding creative solutions to enjoy the game. But I think at the end of the day there's so much option And there's just such a volume of content. You can watch at home so I think it's just more about separating the the brave from those would rather stop by Saly and you and I cover the movie business. I haven't been in a theatre at least a week and a half. How are people who cover movies? Seen movies are a lot of people now watching films on their laptops as opposed to going to screenings or theaters absolutely You know I went to a screening of a short film that one of the talent agency last week and of Savonarola Laura dern who just gave everybody an elbow bump to say hello and handshake so I think people are increasingly quite. Get us about Coming together so they do a lot more digital screeners for for industry professionals. Another interesting note As of last night The South by Southwest Film Festival organized. A last minute of sort of virtual festival with an online screening library to try to give some of those Indians. That didn't get to play a chance to get in front of accredited president.
