Staff members invoke Code purple if they need a security guard to report to a patient's room in response to unsafe or threatening behavior, either by the patient or often by a parent. A Seattle Times investigation finds Code purple is invoked more than twice as often for black patients than for white patients. It's a form of institutional racism. That in part, led to the resignation of Dr Ben Danielson as medical director of the Odessa Brown Children's Clinic, part of the Seattle Children's System, Danielson tells KCTS Seattle Children's own assessment revealed the disparity a decade ago, finding that security was just proportionately called on families based on the color of their skin. 10 years ago and then sitting on that there's a tacit acceptance and since there's a complicity of like, Yeah, we know this and we're not gonna do anything about it. A Seattle Children's spokesperson acknowledges the issue. Telling the Times systemic and institutional racism exists across our healthcare system and Children's is not immune. The spokesperson ads The hospital's goal is to eliminate the code purple disparity altogether.

"The reserve supply of covert vaccines the government promised don't exist. I come before you extremely disappointed that we were lied to with plans of the administration to release reserve doses that were to be the second doses. Of the vaccine, Colorado's governor among those frustrated state leaders, who was banking on additional vials. ABC is Dave Packard, joining us on the co Moh news line. And Dave Talk about a big flip flop from the government. We'd heard at the start of the week from the health and Human Services secretary. That was a big don't hold back. Second doses announcement earlier. Yeah, like Cesar made it sound as though there were a significant number of doses that were on their way, he said. We're releasing the entire supply, which We have for you rather than holding second doses, of course, making that seem like there was a big second. Those supply as it turns out that apparently the bucket is empty. The these doses started going out in December as part of the regular amount of doses that were being sent out to the states. So leading the impression that they were going to be more doses going to the states. The states started saying, OK, we're gonna open up some restrictions on giving out these vaccinations. We're going to allow people who are seeing You're 65 older to get the vaccine. And now all of a sudden those vaccine doses just aren't there. How did they find out? What? What was the breakdown? Well, the breakdown was earlier this week on Tuesday. Alex Cesar makes it sound like these doses are. There's a great huge stockpile of doses that were being held for second doses for people after they got in their first dose, And they said, Okay, we're just gonna release them as first doses, And the idea was that they had a supply chain that was going to continue to produce doses at the pace that they would need them as As it turned out, that supply chain is not up to speed. So it's not even clear that Alex Cesar was aware that the supply was depleted when he made that promise. And then operation Warp speed had to come in today and kind of clarify and say no, those those doses started going out the end of December. There were people who legitimately were getting their second doses at that point, and that reserve was being used for that. And so as it is, right now, states are have ramped up their vaccine distribution efforts. And now they don't have the vaccine to back that up. And meanwhile, the number of covert cases in the U s Today is where we've gone over over 400,000 cases. It is just unprecedented. Obviously, you know, every day we break these records and We're almost getting numb to it. It's the worst crisis has been and with so much else going on on the news. It's something that sometimes we forget. We are in the depths of what is the worst pandemic this country has seen in 100 years and that covered 19 vary it that was first detected in the United Kingdom, Dave that's now in at least 10, U. S States. So what does this indicate for the pandemic? It certainly will change the trajectory of the pandemic because With this more contagious variant of the Corona virus. Even if you're putting out vaccinations at the pace, we're doing it. It's not going to keep up with how this new variant will will change the number of cases. It's not deadlier in any way. It doesn't change the results of an infection, but it's certainly more contagious. And one of the projections the CDC has today. Is that with this new variant now in 10, different U. S States that very Will overtake the current covert 19 virus in this country in terms of infections by March. So does that mean this thing just keeps on going and going? What it means is that it becomes more contagious. And it's evermore important for us to be using medication tactics like mask wearing and hand washing and social distance thing as much as it was before. Now, with a virus that's even more efficient at spreading itself. That becomes even more important. He sees Dave Packer. Thank you, Dave. Absolutely.
