"I think when You see, the CDC come forward later on this month with recommendations for booster vaccines would not be surprised if based on the data. There was not a recommendation for boosters and people above a certain age because of that issue of the durability, their immune response. Let me see another question. There's been so much, uh, concerned with people getting vaccinated. I'm concerned, so few tests are being done anymore. No one is being tested like they were before. Doesn't matter if you get vaccinated if you are infected, because people especially with the delta, very we're talking about the spread within community. And so many people don't realize they have it. Is there a danger? If they get vaccinated while they have it. I would say if you if you had coronavirus, you should get vaccinated. And no, there is. There is not any particular danger of getting receiving the vaccine after you've not time out after talking about currently if you actively have the virus in you, but you're asymptomatic. Let's say so. You go to get the vaccine, But you don't know your status because so few people are getting tested anymore. Is there a danger there? No, no, no. Essentially, you can think of that as you. You've changed the dose of the vaccine in some way. You You've got the dose of vaccine. Plus you got there the stimulation for the natural infection, But no And again we've given the vaccine too. Hundreds of millions of people in the country right now, uh to your point, a lot of those people weren't tested. It is likely that millions of them were currently infected with coronavirus. And we've not seen that complication. You know, I was so interested in my question. I forgot to look at the clock and I went right into our break quickly. We're talking with Dr Michael Chang of UT Health and Children's Memorial Hermann and Dr James McDivitt of Baylor College of Medicine. This is Town Square Mirny menus. We'll be.

"I would agree with the building. Dr Chen's point that change the point. There was a large study of North Carolina last year. During the pandemic. They opened up schools. I think there were 9000 kids involved followed lunch student Lee Contact traced the great epidemiology around the return to school and with safe practices with masking and distancing ventilation, etcetera. Very, very low rate of school transmission. Uh, so this is not the time to relax our precautions. This is the time to ramp them up. And that's just not ramping them up. Within school. It's around schools. It's around the Children. It's around the families. It's really all of us trying to prevent the spread of disease in the In the community. Uh, so yeah, absolutely. This is not the time to let up our foot on the on the gas on masking and distancing within the within the schools. Dr Cheng we we all saw the president of the United States the past President, get covid and recover. Then we saw the governor of the state of Texas test positive and now has tested negative, according to reports. Um are these sending bad signals out there that this is pretty easy and that you can get through it and are people missing the fact of the extraordinary care that people like presidents and governors gap? Yeah, I think you know that's an important thing to keep in mind is that you know, both, um both. Ultimately both our former President, Trump and Governor Abbott have been immunized. They also both did receive the monoclonal antibody treatments. And in fact, you know, Governor Abbott actually received it despite being asymptomatic and fully immunized, And so I think, you know they're definitely receiving great health care from their providers. Uh and I. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to access that type of health care. And so you know, I think their experiences is not necessarily indicative of what everyone's experience is going to be. You know, I'm glad that many people do well, and I'm very pleased that most people are recovering from Covid. But, you know, I think using the two of them as examples is not necessarily going to be just what everybody's experience is going to be, Uh, I would like to remind everyone this is Town Square. I'm Ernie Menus. We're talking with Dr Michael Chang of Beauty, Health and Children's Memorial Hermann and Dr James McDivitt from Baylor College of Medicine, and we're taking your calls. At 8884869677. Brian is next. Brian, What's on your mind? Yes, fellow. Um, I've got a question that I've heard kind of basically touched on and that's in regard to if you, uh, had covid at least once or some people. Like myself have had its wife. Your immunity has built up. Lot more than than even what you can get from the vaccine. Can we touch based on any of the data, and then I do have a question about No. Our Children haven't heard it talked about that. The Children do respond even if they do get covid the same thing that their their immune systems build up much faster, and the chance of the death is Very much lower for a child, obviously, under the age of 16. But then Uh, No. The Children bring it home so that Brian, I'm gonna split your question in half. I'm going to give the first part to Dr McDevitt first about the idea of it. Okay, I had it. Then I had it a second time. Don't I have enough immune response there to block me if I'm not vaccinated. Well, the caller sort of partially answered his own question. The fact that he got it once and then go to the second time indicates that maybe he wasn't completely immune from the from the first infection. But there's no doubt that getting infected with Covid 19 does confer a degree of immunity. You mount, an immune response to your body learns how to fight off the disease, and you do have some native immunity and that's important because we're going to rely on a lot of that. Native immunity to get enough people with antibodies that, uh, that we can reach herd immunity ultimately and get and get through this. Having said that, I think the definitive answer that question isn't yet known, but I think the consensus opinion right now. Is that the immunity conferred by the vaccines tends to be more robust and probably longer acting longer lasting the natural immunity. I think that's been particularly true recently. The delta variant. I think there's been good evidence that the immunity to Delta is not particularly strong from natural natural infection, and Dr Chang, the Children part the students part. Yeah, again, you know, Luckily, very. Fortunately, from a pediatric perspective, you know, Children have been much less effective throughout this pandemic. Um Than adults. And so really, until Delta became the predominant variants, um, circulating in our community, you know, honestly, we we We have fared pretty well from a pediatric perspective, so they're less likely. You know, to this point in the pandemic, they've been less likely to get the infection in the first place. And they've done much better. Um, you know? Yes. Absolutely. They do develop an immune response and and that should, you know, Help them to a point. We don't actually know. You know how long that lasting kids? But at the same time, you know, with Delta variant, you know, we are seeing hospitals, pediatric hospitals filling up full, in fact, with with covid patients and and our use have pediatric patients. And so you know, Delta Variant does seem to have changed the game with respect to pediatric patients. And how, um how easily they're getting it and kind of the the disease severity so In my mind, you know, I I think if we can get vaccinations available for these younger kids, you know whatever. Week, uh, tools we have in our toolbox to minimize the risk of severe illness for pediatric patients. We should take advantage of Dr Chang. Let me ask you a question about this. And it might be. It might be coming from an ignorant point of view. But help me through it here, so Is it with younger Children that they're immune to the effects of the virus? Or is it for some reason they don't get infected the same way as adults? What do we really know? So you know, it's been 18 months of this pandemic. Unfortunately, we don't know that much. So it's probably a combination of both. Um you know, there's a theoretical difference and some of the the cell like surface receptors that the virus needs to infect people. Between kids and adults. And so partly there's this idea that maybe it's more difficult for kids to get infected in the first place. But then at the same time, we know that kids are not just little adults. And so we do know that their immunity doesn't behave exactly the same as adults. And so it is. It is also possible that how kids respond once they're infected is different as well. And so it's probably a combination of both of those issues, which is that kids were less likely to get infected and had a different immune response that have contributed to kind of the trends we've seen so far during the pandemic. How much each one of those contributes. We're not sure. And the exact mechanism we're still not sure, but but that's kind of the ongoing theory about but what we're seeing in kids. Okay? We're going into medical school here now. Doctor McDavid helped me under. No, no, no. I mean, that's where I'm taking us now. Dr David, help me understand this then. So if Children have and and please excuse the very pedestrian terms I'm going to use but if they have a greater Immune response. As we get older, it changes as as Dr changes said Children aren't just little adults. So is it the body getting rid of things? It doesn't need any more. Or is it part of the aging process that we're just losing that stronger immunity? Well, I think as you age, I think I think is probably more the latter. Your your question gets to the rigor of the immune response as you age. I would add to that the rigorous immune response for people that are on immunosuppressive drugs that have transplant transplant patients, for example, people that have infectious diseases like HIV that might affect the immune system a lot of things that might impact the immune system. One of the things is aging. Your your immune system is not quite as Rigorous in its response as you get into your sixties and seventies and beyond, Uh, I and that's that's one of the reasons frankly, when you get vaccinated and you're older, you don't tend to have is as rigorous response. I think when You see, the CDC come forward later on this month with recommendations for booster vaccines would not be surprised.

"And chatting with me today is Dr Michael Chang of UT Health and Children's Memorial Hermann and also Dr James McDivitt, who is with us from Baylor College of Medicine. I mentioned our phone number a moment ago, 8884869677 and Gary is up next. Gary, What's your question? With all the stuff going on with proof of vaccine, and people haven't fake cards and stuff like that. Is there a way we could get some kind of a National Registry started where we could call in proof or have some other way to have proof from a national central place nationally. Gary. That is a great question. And I wonder that all the time myself, Doctor McDavid, uh, can't they when we or do they even when we get vaccinated? Is this going somewhere in a national registry? You get those little paper cards, But is there somewhere? We know what's happening. Well, you're handed up paper card that it's your responsibility to keep up with that. It is registered through the city three see through in tract, which is a state by state reporting. Um, it's I think, ultimately linked through the CDC, but it's not technically a federal database of this at this point. So reasonable thought. I think for us in the United States to get to the point that we have a mandatory centralized repository of vaccination information. That's more of a political hurdle than a medical or public health hurdle. There would be a great deal of opposition from some parts of the community to that sort of mandatory reporting. I'm I'd be in favor of it, but I just think it's it would be challenging to get that passed. Yeah. Dr. Chang your thoughts on the the efficacy of having a national database for all of us to get vaccinated entered into Yeah. I mean, I think it would be helpful just from data collection standpoint and kind of an outcome standpoint, you know, so that we could have better information and more transparency about kind of outcomes associated with vaccination and And those who are unvaccinated, but I agree. I think it's politically challenging. Ask, and I think it would be difficult to get that done. Let me ask, ask you this one thing that we hear a lot about here and last week we were getting a number of calls about it. So Dr Cheng your thought about Ivor Mactan. We have a report that says 70% of the recent calls in Mississippi to their state Poison control center related to people who ingested a version of the drug. That is formulated to treat parasites in cows and horses. Somewhere along the line. People think that it is effective against Covid. What do you know? Yeah, I think that has been kind of a a topic That's been, uh, popular for discussion. But I think Ivermectin has actually been studied as an antiviral for for many other viruses kind of throughout its availability, and unfortunately, it's never been. It's never been shown to be that effective for other types of viral infections. And and that's also now been true for Covid 19. So you know when you when you kind of take the aggregate of data with ivermectin, um, globally available, you know, it doesn't It doesn't seem to be. It doesn't seem to be particular effective. For treatment of Covid, 19 or even prevention of Covid 19. And so and so, therefore, you know, the FDA has now you know, put out various like tweets and statements that really we should not be using or relying on either Mac and to try to treat or prevent covid 19 Doctor David, How do we get to the point that things like that are thought to be effective. Well, that's a great question. And what an irony that people are willing to, uh to self treat with veterinary medication with with little or no evidence, But yet we are skeptical of the investigation. Yeah, that's fascinating. I can't really answer that question. I will say in terms of hesitancy there, probably 14 to 15% of people out there that are vaccine hesitant and will always remain vaccine hesitant. I don't think this will make any difference. There's probably a group about 10% of people in the country that are influence a ble that are kind of waiting to see what happens. In 10% might not selling much, but if that's 10% of adults in the US, we're talking about 25 26 million people. Uh, I think this announcement will potentially influence those people. Maybe a bigger impact will be, uh, there a number of companies that, starting with healthcare Methodist was first in Houston, Baylor started requiring vaccination of more. Herman requires vaccination of employees now. Now that it is off of emergency authorization, I think an impact you'll see over the next week or so is a lot of companies start to pile on and add vaccine requirements like now the department offense's doing for for the military. I heard someone today say, you know, you may not be able to talk someone into getting a vaccine, but if they can't go see the concert they want to see unless they get the shot. You'll be surprised how quickly they will actually take that shot. So let's hope that it influences a lot of folks to do it. Our phone number. 8884869677 Heather Europe Next. What's on your mind? Hi. I just wondered with our kids who are, um under 12 and therefore not Ellis will be vaccinated and they're now in school for seven hours a day. 25 kids per classroom. Is there any reasonable hope that we're not just You know, resigning ourselves to all the kids getting covid. Thank you for that. I think your thoughts are on the minds of a lot of parents today, Dr Chang Yeah, No, I I agree. I have school age Children myself and so you know, are kind of I'm experiencing some of that same anxiety. I think there's a couple of things to keep in mind. Now, Dell says a little bit different, but to this point, you know In the pandemic. Fortunately, we haven't seen evidence of just large within school outbreaks when mitigations in place, meaning masks, physical, distancing improved ventilation. Etcetera. And so you know, when you look at the history of Pandit of the pandemic so far and how kids, um, spread and acquire covid 19, you know, Fortunately, we just we haven't seen Very large within school outbreak, So that's you know, that's somewhat reassuring. Now. Delta is more contagious. And so we may we may see that change a bit, but at the same time, you know, I think kids are actually quite good at following mitigation measures, when, when you kind of talk about it with them and get them used to it. And and so I am hoping that you know, the trend of not having a big within school outbreak is still is still going to kind of last through. Through Delta, and I think the key is getting community spread down so that we we aren't bringing you know Covid home via the parents or other in older siblings, etcetera. And then and then having kids go to school with Covid. And so then one thing I would ask, you know, all parents is that if your kid is symptomatic with anything, whether you think it's covid or not, you know, I really would encourage you to try to keep your child at home and not let him go to school. Dr McDevitt, we learned, or at least the result of the reports were telling us earlier on that even in communities where there was a larger spread within schools that were following mitigation practices. Those are some of the safest places to be. So it seems kind of odd to me that as we mandate folks going back to school that we lessened up on those mitigation practices, what are your thoughts?.

"Uh, to the extent that we can vaccinate staff in schools that's really important. And appropriate attention to masking and distancing again until we get everybody vaccinated. Told us behind us. That's uh, that's one of the most important interventions we have. Okay. The number here is 8884869677. Andre, You are up next. What's on your mind? How you doing, doing Okay? What's your question? My question is now that the FDA has approved it's actually if someone happens to have a YG in effect physically or Uh, any anything. Any side effects that come with the vaccine, can they now? Do for Uhh! Can announce suit for Them now having to deal with the ramifications of them taking it back deep now that it's been approved. Andre. Thanks for that question. Dr. Rick David. I guess the bigger question he's asking is what exactly does approval mean? And then what is the legality behind that? What is the, uh, the? Uh well, I'll just let you take it. I was an interesting question. I guess I should start with the most important answer the question and that the root of it is what happens is something If there's a bad side effect, If I take the vaccine, the reality is the chance of having a significant side effects from the vaccine. I'm not talking about body aches or low grade fever. A day or so of flu like symptoms, but a significant of a complication requires hospitalization or great creeks illness. The chance of that happening is extraordinarily low. We're talking about in the ones and millions of people so very, very few side effects. We've administered millions and millions hundreds of millions of doses of vaccine in the country right now, very low side of side effect profile. I think with the colours getting, too is under emergency use authorization. The companies have some degree of Protection from litigation. And I imagine that changes. But frankly, I don't know the answer that questions legally. But as a practical matter, you are highly unlikely to experience of bad side effect. And you are much more likely to have a bed impact from catching covid 19. So again, I'd be more worried about getting covid that I would about getting up side effects for the vaccine. Dr Chang. What about the people that are somewhat resistant out there? Because they feel well, We don't know what this vaccine is going to do to our system a year, two years, 10 years down the road. Yeah, I hear that concern a lot, actually. And I think the important thing to remember about the Mrna vaccines and and the other vaccines that are available is that you know, the the actual The vaccine is actually only in your system for a short period of time. So with the M RNA vaccines The Mrna is a very short lived molecule in your body. It's just there long enough really, to get a few cells in your body to make the spike protein and and then train your immune system to develop that immune response against The despite protein, and so when we think about vaccine side effects and vaccine adverse events when you look back through the history of vaccination, really what the side effects and kind of adverse events that we see are related to that immune response when you when you develop that immunity, the first time against the exposure to the vaccine, so that usually happens within the first few weeks of receiving the vaccine. And so even with you know, with these vaccines, the covid vaccines that we've had this thus far in the pandemic, you could see that you know the concerns about kind of that rare clotting problem with with with Johnson and Johnson vaccine, um And then with the myocardial this issue with the RNA vaccines, they all happened very quickly within the first few weeks of people getting immunized, and so when we talk about a side effect happening, you know, you know, six months or one year, 10 years after approval. It's not that It took a one person's body that long to develop the side effect. It's because, you know, it's such a rare side effect that it took that long to vaccinate enough people to find that one person that's going to have that very uncommon side effects. And so again throughout vaccines for other infections, Really most of the adverse events have all happened within the first several weeks. That music tells us we got to grab a quick break. Here. We're talking with Dr Michael Chang of UT Health and Children's Memorial Hospital and Dr James McDivitt. Baylor College of Medicine Up next at Gary's hanging online. Heather's on the line and we're taking your calls. 8884869677. Enforcing mandates and getting low pay has taken quite a toll on service workers.

"Diseases specialist at UT Health and Children's Memorial. Hermann Hospital. Welcome Dr Chang. Thanks for having me and Dr James McDivitt, a regular contestant on this program. He's the executive vice president Indian of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine and also writes the blog Covid. 19. Updates from Dr James McDivitt from Baylor College of Medicine. Hello there, Doctor McDevitt. Can I point out of a regular contestant, but I have never yet one. I don't know when we're going to win this, But I know the wind is coming. It's in. It's in the cards for the future for us, Um Dr McDevitt, let me just start with you right off the top FDA approval today. Is this a game changer? I think it's a really, really important development. We've been waiting for this for quite a while and I would start by saying we've been waiting. We've sort of been asking. Why hasn't it come earlier? I would give credit to the FDA. I think they went through their usual process. So what this approval means is the new drug, which is incidentally, called Homer Nitta. I've been practicing it all day. It's very hard to say Como I r n A. T. A That is approved like your diabetes medications approved like you're hypertensive drug is approved. So it's a big deal, and I think it's going to impact hesitancy. We'll talk about this throughout the hour, but in two or three different important ways, yeah, Dr Chang once of medication is approved or in this case of vaccine is approved by the FDA. How does that change the way actual medical doctors can deal with it? Yeah, I think you know to this point in the pandemic after the emergency authorization was granted. You know, we we've We've been trying to prescribe it and get out to as many people as possible. I think with the full FDA approval What you'll see, I think is just even wider availability. If it wasn't already, you know in your community, but I think from the perspective of providers that have been recommending the vaccine, to be honest, I don't think the full FDA approval actually changes how we're approaching. You know, kind of our attitudes about vaccination for Covid. Okay, before we get into more questions. I want to remind folks that we encourage our listeners to call in enjoying the conversation 8884869677, and we already have Natalie on the line. Natalie, what's on your mind today? Yeah. Yes, I I have an incoming. Um, first grader. And what is the update on Children being vaccinated? When will the data be submitted? And how early could they get shots and arms? Thank you, Doctor. McDavid. I'll start with you on this one. Yes. So to really the age is a little bit. The first of all the FDA approval for the Pfizer vaccine is for ages. 16 and above. So we did. The 12 to 15 is still an emergency use authorization. The younger age groups 6 to 12 and five and younger. I don't think we'll see and the other physician may have more information. I don't think we'll see the older Children approved until later on this year. I don't think we'll see the young young Children approved for emergency use authorization until in the next calendar year before I go over to Dr Chang, the one thing you did say that I'm curious about the approval from the FDA today, as you just mentioned was 16 and above. But remember, when the vaccines were being approved, it was 18 and above and then 12 to 18. Why the 16. How does that jump into the race? Wasn't there. I imagine that's based on the data they had available make the decision as adequate data in those age groups to to look at their monitoring and making going through the usual approval process. So it shouldn't be an indicator that there's a concern about those 12 to 15 year olds that it's just what that is available at the time. No, I'm sure there's not I I'm sure that's just an issue of just having enough data. Enough longitudinal that in that age group to to make that judgment, Dr Chang your thoughts about the younger ones and getting vaccinated. Sure, Just one quick point to clarify, though, for Pfizer vaccine fighters original authorization was actually down to 16. It was Moderna that was 18 and up. Okay? Yeah, the 16 and up fighters. Emergency use authorization was always 16 and up. And so I think Just 16 and up approval is based on the data that they had from the original trial where they've now been able to follow all that safety data and and patient, you know, effects out this long to get full approval for that particular age group and up. For the 12 and 15. Obviously, the authorization came later. So you know we're following that a little bit longer now, as far as younger Children are concern, you know, they kind of had to start with phase 12 and three they were testing different doses, both for Pfizer and Moderna. That was recently expanded just to be sure that we had enough patients both in the placebo groups and and then the vaccinated groups to make sure that we had enough safety data that was robust, and that would be You know that parents would find reassuring? Um, so I think within the next few weeks, I hope to hear some additional updates. But I wouldn't anticipate kids under the age of 12 being vaccinated. You know, probably not towards not until the end of the year. More than likely. And then kids younger than that. Probably at the beginning of the year, um of next year. Sorry, but But, you know, we're all waiting for for more information, and I do. I do hear that. We probably will have some more information the next few weeks. Suffice to say, I think we all agree at this point, though, everyone should still be masking and especially those who can't get vaccinated. That is still our best weapon. Correct. Okay, Dad. Good. Go ahead and check. No. Yeah, I think you know between masking and physical distancing and then and then anyone who is eligible for vaccination should get vaccinated. When we put all those layers of protection together, that is the best thing we can do to try to keep reduce the number of covid cases in our community. Absolutely, Doctor McDevitt. I would just refer everyone to the release by the TMC institutions. Last Friday, it's on the text Medical Center website. Advice to school and parents and basic advices. Vaccinate anybody possible. Pretty, particularly people in your circle of contact with your kids,.

"Numbers. That's all you hear from the mainstream media. Depending on whether it suits them surging Corona virus cases They say, testing positive here in Texas can you trust what they're telling you Those numbers. Here's Katie rages close. Saunders. Well, there are reasons not to, for instance, Texas head to remove more than 3400 cases of covert from their totals, because San Antonio was reporting probable cases and not confirmed ones. The bigger challenge is that it was a backlog of a few weeks that they released all at once, which again resulted in this impression of the virus surging in San Antonio talked to forward the Texas Public Policy Foundation says it's not the only issue that existed how cases and deaths are being reported. When that stuff gets reported up. It's difficult to account for wind. Exactly these deaths and these tests were done. In fact, Last week, we saw major Turner announcing deaths that actually took place in May. Other states were being called out for how they report in Florida. A death from a motorcycle crash was listed as covert 19. Until a TV station in Orlando raised us think about it. Yeah. Yeah, I know of cases where that's happened here in Texas, too. Thanks a lot. Cliff, Texas Medical Center is giving us some numbers. Hospitalizations for covert 19. Well, they've gone down over the last week. Don't hear a screaming headlines about it, though, do you A lot of people being tested positive for coded. So we're now generating fewer admissions into the hospital. Yeah, they're testing positive but their hand in their bodies. They're handling it. Dr. James McDivitt with the Baylor College of Medicine there, telling our TV partner channel to that medical center. Hospitals here are on ly filling about 8%. Of the 373 ice surge beds that are available now in the Houston Fire Department. They've lost captain Leroy Lucio. He's a 29 year veteran of Hft. He died in a San Antonio I c u where he was being treated for covert 19. It's going to be considered a line of duty death, the state's death count now up to over 4000 there were more than 10,500 Texans in the hospital. Now, with Cove in 19 nationally, Congress discussing another round a covert stimulus. The president says he wants it to include a payroll tax cut. And the president says he's going to resume doing the Corona Virus Task Force briefing, said he had stopped in April. They could start up a Zerlina as today getting a handle on the information that goes out to the news media. New coalition of Small and large businesses say they have a meantime, a solution to our highway congestion problem. They call it private investment. This week, the Texas Association of Business announced the launch of Keep Texas Partner with state government and build out the infrastructure that we need to make sure that we're effectively moving, you know people products and allowing everyone to conduct commerce. Cox says Part of that includes adding more toll lanes. Okay, we're time that private building of toll roads. We've been down this road before, he says Texas Though growing so rapidly, they've got to give driver's an option of paying more. To get to their destinations faster. Nothing set in stone here were told. But Sugarland City Council is considering attacks Ike earlier this month, officials ASA County to calculate the property tax rate of 8% economies, Van gin gin, says local officials. You know, maybe instead of raising taxes, you better cut spending. While the economy tries to recover. They love government Congress. They really need to go on a diet and think about the struggling financial situation of hardworking technique to not have to pay Maurin higher taxes and what they really need to do at the government level is to start to rein in their budget. Yeah, but you got cash strapped local governments like sugar land, and they're going to begin writing their budgets for the upcoming fiscal year that starts in the fall. It's now 707 Koven 19 pandemic, sparking a rebirth of snake oil salesmen. One example a HAZ mat like helmet for air travelers, though it's not really say approved, Dr Christine Lay at the Kelcy stable clinic says it's buyer. Beware with any specialized mask or even you know those diet pills that claim to help prevent or even cure Cove in 19 If for some reason, a person is going to buy something off the Internet or put something in their mouth and swallow it, it is really best to contact our doctor's office and make sure it's safe. Yeah, Charlie says no known cure yet for covert 19 except frequent hand washing as a preventive, social distancing and she says, wearing a mask in public, it's now 70 wait. Nassar's beat the Royals 6 to 3. Last night in Kansas City. That exhibition game We're gonna play the Royals again today at 1 p.m..

"Day. But there are some reasons not to trust those numbers. Here's Katie Righteous Cliff Saunders, some Texas City Shera over reporting, for instance, San Antonio 3400 cases were moved from the states total because that city reported probable cases as actual cases. Had been confirmed yet. Chuck DeVore, the Texas Public Policy Foundation, says the mainstream media well when they get ahold of this bad things happen in The New York Times says that San Antonio 6341 more cases, then does the state of Texas so somebody isn't reporting the proper numbers? Devore also says We don't know when these deaths occurred or when the tests were actually done because of backlogs. It's difficult to account for when these deaths and these tests were done, and as a result, the media tends to lump it all together and say, Oh, my goodness, it surges empty scream it. Actually there are other issues in other states as well, for instance, in Florida A motorcycle crash tricked him listed as a covert death until a TV station in Orlando looked around and said This is wrong. Yeah. You gotta have the news media. Local news media. Call him out on it. They don't all do that. Thanks a lot, Cliff. We're hearing from Ah, the Texas Medical Center. Now they say that hospitalizations here in Houston no matter what you were seeing on national media. Going down Medical center hospitals are on ly filling about 8% of the 373 I see you serge beds that are available. It would not have made sense to have converted all 373 those into fully functional ized events with staff because you don't really need it right now. Yeah, That's Dr James McDivitt with the Baylor College of Medicine. He was talking to our TV partner, Channel two. Now we had sad news from the Houston Fire Department. Captain Leroy Lucio. He has died Now, after being hospitalized in a San Antonio. I see you. With covert 19. He's been with Hft for 29 years, and they're going to call Thiss Ah line of duty death. He is the first Houston firefighter to die of Cove it again. It was in a San Antonio. I see you. Stay. Death toll from Covad nine now stands at 4020. More than 10,500 Texans are in the hospital. Being treated with the virus. Congress continuing to talk about a new round of stimulus that the president wants a payroll tax cut to be a part of and president Trump says he's gonna be bringing back his daily virus Taskforce briefings. Maybe as soon as today it's now 605 U. S. Senator Ted Cruz, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Well, they're going after it on Twitter cruise criticizing Cuban for suggesting that national anthem police are out of control. This is after one sports watcher tweeted that he didn't want to see any player in the N B, a kneeling for the national anthem. Cruz also as if Cuban is willing to stand up against communist China's human rights abuses, Cuban tweeted not interested in getting involved in the domestic policies of any foreign country. China threatened the MBA relationship when Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey Express solidarity with the pro democracy protesters in Hong Kong. MBA. Hold it on that. Texas Senator Ted Cruz also says Republicans need to avoid making this election about the personality of Donald Trump versus Joe Biden. And instead focus on the issues and policies. It focuses on a contrast between free enterprise and socialism. On a contrast between the Constitution and Bill of Rights and Rule of law versus anarchy and violence, We win Nina Cruz says. That's why media simply wants to focus on personalities, not much on the anarchy. It's occurring now in many of our cities. Nothing set in stone here. They tell us but over in sugar land, the city council may consider a tax hike. Earlier this month, they asked the county to calculate a property tax rate. Increase. At 8%. Economist Van Skin says local officials have to cut spending if the economy is going to recover from this downturn. Not so much raised taxes. They look government Congress. They really need to go on a diet and think about the struggling financial situation of hardworking tech to not have to pay Maurin higher taxes and what they really need to do at the government level is to start to rein in their budget. Many cash strapped local governments such a sugar land they're going to get in writing their budgets for the upcoming fiscal year. It starts in the vault. Well, we got a record low for mortgage rates. Now on your home. The average 30 year fixed rate mortgage fell below 3% this past week. Real estate expert, J P P. Cheney says mortgage rates will be a historic lows for the foreseeable future. But Morgan Bankers Association has pretty much without a forecast of rates are expected to stay at historic lows for the remainder of the year Pitch meeting says It's.
