"Bells at the National Cathedral in the nation's capital tolling 500 times this evening in memory of the more than 500,000 Americans who have died of covert 19 since the start of the pandemic. CBS News Special Report President Biden has addressed the nation as the U. S. Covert 19 death toll tops 500,000 here. People described his ordinary Americans. There's no such thing. Nothing ordinary about him. People we lost were extraordinary. They spanned generations. Mr. Biden, taking on the role of consoler in chief asked the nation to remember those who have fallen victim of covert 19. We have to resist becoming numb to the sorrow. Have to resist doing each life is this just as a statistic? Vanderbilt University Dr William Schaffner think. Indeed, a majority of the deaths could have been prevented if we had had he sustained science and public health based National policy. At the end of his speech, Mr Biden said, this nation will smile again. There will be sunny days and he said there will be joy

"Covert 19. Even on people who never actually exhibits symptoms. An estimated one quarter to one third of covert infections are asymptomatic. But multiple studies are showing that asymptomatic patients still sometimes have irregular lung scans. Couple of small studies have found cardiac issues in student athletes. And in some cases, even Children have shown signs of possible small blood vessel damage that doctors believe a lot of the damage seen will eventually resolve itself. It's not clear how long it'll take, in fact, is too early to really know exactly what sort of long term effects might exist. You may have seen the post going around on social media, claiming you should not drink alcohol after getting your covert 19 vaccine because it can reduce your body's immune system. Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University, sets the record straight. There's no evidence for that, and I'm sure many people in the trials have a glass of wine and maybe three during dinner. There's no reason to believe from study any other vaccine. That alcohol itself will somehow impair your immune response. Now, the effort to get everyone vaccinated against covert 19 is not progressing quickly. But what about what about a third of America already plans to take a trip this year survey says The desire to travel is impacting the willingness of 49% of America to get a covert 19 shot The travel website The points guy. Also, reports 33% of Millennials say Taking a trip has a major impact on their inclination to get vaccines. Hated. Ask folks that if they were vaccinated where they'd go, and 35% said they'd be likely to taken out of state Road trip, the survey of more than 1200. People also find some folks have no interest in getting away. 20% have no desire to travel it all. Christi King w T o p News coming up in money news.

"Center, about a new potential surgery. All worried about that, with this roller coaster with the cove. It So cases air now going down along with hospitalizations, But this surge by variants that spread more readily the Maura you spread. I'm afraid the more people will become sick, and some of those will have to be hospitalized. So we're worried about an uptick again because of these variants. And if you could straighten out what these variants do, are they More contagious. Are they more deadly? Tell us about this UK in South Africa Variants we've been talking about Yes, on both of them Spread more readily there, Mork contagious and the data would indicate from both of them. Really? That they may also make Ume or sick. You're more likely to get severe disease so not good on both of those counts, but fortunately our vaccines, the ones that we're using. Can mitigate against them. They still work against these very in viruses, So let's get his many people vaccinated as quickly as possible. You know, it's really interesting. I heard Dr Fauci speaking about the South African virus variant, and it appears that there's some evidence to suggest It can infect people who already have antibodies to the original coronavirus. Can you speak to that? Well, the data are suggestive, but it sounds as though this virus may be sufficiently different from the standard strain so that it can evade the immune system. That usually provides protection after you've recovered, So could we have people now having second infections, this time with the South African variant? We'll have to wait and see what happens. Another bit of not great news. Given where we are right now, with the virus in this country. What are you most hopeful about in the weeks ahead? Oh, Shawn, I'm a very hopeful about the vaccine rollout. It's gathering steam, and I hope that vaccine continues to come out. And, as you say, we may be getting some other manufacturers delivering their vaccines soon, which will be more millions of doses ready to be used so That has me smiling a bit. Even after people are vaccinated. We're hearing it's still really important to socially distance and wear a mask. Is that correct? Absolutely, Hillary. It's very important. Let's continue to do what we're doing well and add the vaccine. Who are preventive arsenal. All together. Working together, We can flatten this curve.

"Course, along the way to get a lot of good will I'm Dr Shaft and I have a question for you from listeners. Scott, you're on 7 20 w g N What can we do for you today? They're known. My question for the doctor is you made a comment about blowing the whistle when it's all clear when we can remove our masks. What is it? We lost you there, Scotty. There. Yeah. Hello? Yes. Start over. Scott after you moved the mascot. What was your question? My question was like what needs to happen before we could say OK, We don't need to wear the masks in public people. We don't You know, we're done with the mask. What? What needs to transpire before that happens. That's a good question. Scott, I have a feeling you're not gonna love doctor Chef. There's an answer to that. Oh, I think Scott's got his finger on it. We would like to see a substantial reduction that sustained in new cases. The perp would like to see reduction in the proportion of tests that are positive. We would like to see a real reduction and patients being admitted to the hospital. I think those are the three metrics that would be followed. Production in new cases, reduction and tests that are positive and a reduction in hospitalizations, all of which are sustained. Not for a day or two. But for a longer period of time, and if that happened over a fairly large geographic area, half of the state or a whole state Etcetera. Then in that part of the country, we could start relaxing our restrictions again doing things carefully. Not all of a sudden we did that experiment. We opened up too quickly and and covert just bloomed on us. I'm afraid. Well, you talk about relaxing restrictions. I know Scott was specifically asking about removing the mask. I'm guessing there's layers of removing restrictions. For example, right down here in Chicago, You're not allowed to eat indoors with the master without that's not allowed. So I imagine the mask itself would probably mask and social distancing in general would be the last Bit of that. That would go. I would imagine that we could maybe, you know, get kids back in school. Start eating in restaurants again, Bit by bit by bit as those numbers go down. That's the careful way to do it, Man. One step at a time. Let's not rush this because we found it up before s so if we do it cautiously, one step at a time and not get too eager. Next Thanksgiving. Maybe we can have a near normal Thanksgiving and subsequent holidays. So is that kind of what you're looking at in your crystal ball? You're thinking that's your line in the sand By next Thanksgiving. You expect to see some return to previous normalcy that school for the rest of 20 year old for this first part of 2021. Probably not gonna be the same. Summer. We may not be back in ballparks yet, etcetera. But by Thanksgiving next year, you're hoping we're not telling everybody Don't get on their plane. Stay at home. Those are my high hopes, and I don't say anything before that, because I don't like toe over promise and under deliver if we take the long view. If we can do it earlier will all celebrate, But let's maintain the long view. I know there's a lot of impatience out there, but I think we all need to still hunker down for quite a long period of time. This virus is not going to just disappear. Will it disappear eventually? Will there be a time when this is gone? And we're not getting the shots? Or do you think for a least the next decade? We're talking about getting our vaccines every year. I think it will be the letter it this this virus. Matt is not going to just disappear. It will be integrated in some form into our way of life. And I hope these vaccines will protect us for longer periods of time. But it might be possible that each year we have to get the flu shot in the left arm and the covert vaccine in the right arm. We'll see how it goes. Dr William Schaffner, professor of medicine, the division of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt, We always appreciate your time. Have a great new year and we'll see you next year. Absolutely happy New Year to all. They knew year. Yes, indeed. Thank you so much. Dr Schaffner, 1 30. Time for the news Now with Jordan Burn.

"11 on w T. O P and always glad to hear from you hear the surgeon Corona virus infections is showing no signs of slowing here in the United States. We've seen 140,000 new cases. Today alone, The nation hit a record number of hospitalizations for the week, Vanderbilt Medical Center Infectious Disease specialist Dr William Schaffner joined our shot on Hillary to break down where we stand in the pandemic. I think we're in a dark place because obviously, as you just said Cases are increasing. It's in every single state and their increasing at a rate that surprised even we experts because we knew there would be a surge. We didn't think it would come quite this early and The steep increase is really ominous. Hospitals are filling up again. People are really sick and give it another week or two. And I'm afraid the death rate will go up. Also. And looking forward to the winter where Mohr people are spending more time indoors. More holidays. More group gatherings, fewer people wearing masks. It's not a good formula. Yeah, I wanted to ask you about this. You and other top experts have been telling us for months to wear a mask. Avoid other people. Wash your hands frequently. Does it seem like America in general is not listening. I'm afraid so. I think there's not only covert fatigue. I think there's now a real covert annoyance. People are tired of this virus just wanted to go away. But of course it won't. It's on ly job is to infect another person, and it's doing that very, very efficiently. We need a new view. We've done the experiment of subcontracting the control of this outbreak to the governors and the various states that's failed. Look at the data. We need a national approach. Similar to the approach in many other countries. Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand China, for example, and they have worked with a clear national direction whether we can get that together. I'm not sure. But we need to make that attempt besides your desire to see a national plan. What about a potential national plan Having to do with gear? Some hospitals are running into shortages again. It's part of the issue. We need a national program to make sure that we have enough personal protective equipment as we call it four hospitals and health care workers to use For their own protection. Obviously, I think will gather around a vaccination program, but that too will be very strong out. It will take us months. Vaccinate everybody whom we would like to vaccinate. And during that time don't throw away your mask will have to keep up with the masking and the social distancing Dr William Schaffner, infectious disease specialist at the Vanderbilt Medical Center, the CDC is out with new guidance on the benefits of wearing a mask during the pandemic. It now says the master a two way street meeting. They protect the person wearing them and everyone around that person. Previous guidance suggested that face coverings mainly prevented infected people from spreading the virus to others. Still ahead on w T o P Covad hits the Maryland football team. Long term care.

"Passed through, say checkpoints yesterday, a goodly number But still off 60 something percent from where things were a year ago. Airlines, though, do of course, have to make money, and if they're going to make money, they need more people on more seats on more planes. That's why Southwest now it's not too long ago. It's going to start making middle seats available for booking starting December, the first Delta's CEO said. It's probably going to do the same thing early in the new year. Marketplaces cement the fields has more on that one. Bridget Fetzer and her husband were planning to fly from Baltimore to San Diego in December, Rent a convertible and drive up the coast to San Francisco. They had the tickets and everything. And then, in October, my husband got an email from Southwest that said that they are no longer going to keep the middle seats empty on the flights, which made them nervous. Fetzer had flown once earlier in the pandemic to Kentucky on a pretty empty plain. There are a lot of people that weren't wearing their masts or, you know, like they're pulling them down below their noses and stuff like that, And the idea of that happening on a full flight was a deal breaker. She and her husband canceled their trip. Ah, lot of people still feel safer with an empty seat next to them on a plane, says Edward Russell, who covers aviation for the Travel site. The points guy reality, though, is that can't continue forever. Airlines are for profit businesses. That have been hemorrhaging money for months. Southwest said its policy of blocking middle seats cost the airline roughly $20 million in September and could cost it up to 60 million in November. Meanwhile, Russell says American and United from early on had not blocked middle seats and shown that people are still willing to fly them. They've seen their passenger numbers rise. It's still unclear how much keeping middle seats empty could reduce the risk of getting Cove it on a plane, says Dr William Schaffner, a professor of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt. But he says the closer we are to Mohr people for prolonged periods of time in an enclosed space. Our risk goes up. His airlines are going to fill every seat, he says. That makes it all the Maurin important that everyone on the aircraft where their masks Forest long as possible. That's the only way Bridget Fetzer would consider getting on a full flight. If everyone was wearing a mask correctly, the whole time that.

"You can find out more about the foundation and an f i d dot org's Dr Schaffner. We appreciate you joining us for a few minutes. Let's start with what we know about the upcoming influenza season. And why flu vaccines are so important, particularly this year. Ryan thank you very much for the opportunity we can predict with certainty that there will be a flu. See them. Of course, we can't tell you whether it will be a little milder or more serious, but we need to prepare for it. It's especially important this year because you know, cold. It is out there at the same time. And so we're goingto have a twin dem IQ. That is an epidemic, both of Cove Inn and a flu and you know they look very much alike. So we have health care providers are going to have a hard time sorting this out. We're asking everyone to be prepared as possible. Let's get our influenza vaccine. Because that will protect us. It'll make us less likely to spread it to our friends and neighbors, and nobody wants to be a dreaded spreader. And it will also take some of the strain off the health care system While we're dealing with Cove it. The recommendations are simple if you're older than six months of age You should be vaccinated against influenza. Is there a reason influenza season happens this time of the year. That is such a straightforward, simple question to which there is no straightforward answer. Scientifically yet now, part of it much be because we all congregate indoors. And more time face to face with each other. So that enhances the transmission. Now your listeners are going to say, T. That sounds just like coded. And of course it is because the virus is spread the same way And if you're being careful wearing masks, watching social distancing That will help reduce your risk of influenza, but we need to get vaccinated. On top of that. I'm joined by Dr William Schaffner, medical director at the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases Tell us about the effectiveness and safety of flu vaccines to key questions, So effectiveness effectiveness varies depending upon the year and that's because this new viruses always mutating. Unlike incidentally Kobe, which has been very stable because the virus mutates. We have to create a new vaccine each year, and it varies ineffectiveness from year to year. And according to the population that's vaccinated. Who are you if you're older? You may not respond as well to the influenza vaccine and will cycle back to that in just a moment, but its effectiveness Barry's anywhere from 40 to 70%. It's not completely affected, but it is effective enough to prevent many, many illnesses completely, and here's something most people don't know. Supposed to get the vaccine and then a month and a half later, you get the real flu and you get grumbly about that because you've got the flu anyway. But here's the benefit. Having been vaccinated. Your illness was less severe. We demonstrate this year in and year out, you're less likely to have to go to the emergency room behind hospitalized and you're less likely to die. Hello. What's wrong with that? We have a pretty darn good vaccine. It's not perfect, but we can do a lot of good with it. Let's all get vaccinated and the safety of flu vaccines. Some people worried that if they get the shot, they're going to feel like they have the flu for a day talking about how safe these vaccines have become. Well, you can't get flu from the flu vaccine. You can get a sore arm, which I always get annually, and some people get some redness and swelling and a few people get headache feel kind of crummy for a day. And or may have a degree of fever for a day or two. That's just your body starting to work on the vaccine, and that's easily worth the price you pay in order to prevent a real case of influenza, which Can put you absolutely in the bed and set you up for the complication of pneumonia. That's the thing that usually takes people to the hospital. I'm joined by Dr William Schaffner, medical director at the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. You mentioned this a little while ago, but I was hoping maybe you could expand upon it a bit. Is it possible that the measures taken to mitigate the spread of covert 19 could really help slow the spread of influenza as well? Well, we think that that's the case and that's a good thing. The people out there who are be careful, will benefit not on Ly by preventing reducing their risk of getting co bit, but also reducing their risk of getting influenza. You know, during our summer, the Southern Hemisphere Australia, New Zealand, for example, have their winter That's the way it works. In this past winter in Australia, New Zealand they had the lowest flu season ever recorded, and our Australian colleagues attribute this two things. The first is they gave Mohr influenza vaccine than they ever have before. By far they really promoted it. And the second thing is their populations were really quite compliant with social distance thing and mask wearing, so they attribute their load flu season to both of those things together. I think there's a lesson there for us. If someone does get the flu, whether they get the vaccine, and the severity isn't nearly what it would've been if they hadn't gotten the vaccine or somebody maybe Theyjust hadn't gotten the vaccine yet, and they contract the flu. What are some of the different treatment options that they might have? Well, we do have treatment options for flu. The trick is to get in touch with your health care provider Early you notice I didn't say go to the office and spread..

If someone does get the flu, whether they get the vaccine, and the severity isn't nearly what it would have been if they hadn't gotten the vaccine, or if somebody maybe Theyjust hadn't gotten the vaccine. In yet and they contract the flu. What are some of the different treatment options that they might have? Well, we do have treatment options for flu. The trick is to get in touch with your health care provider Early, he notice I didn't say go to the office and spread your blue everybody in the waiting room. Use your email or pick up your home. For sure we can give people an anti viral medication that will make the illness shorter and less severe, less likely to have the complications. It obviously works better the earlier you call, so if in your community there's lots of fluids, you'll know it by just watching the TV. And you happen to get sick? Don't linger saying Oh, maybe I'll get better by tomorrow. We adults have a way of doing that. That will just make the antiviral medication less effective. So Don't tell hesitate the contact your.

"We have some information on the early volunteers, usually two or three years down the road. Obviously, we won't have that sort of information with the covert vaccine. But given the severity of the cove, it impact itself. All the scientists have said Okay. We need the information that reaches out at least two months and then after we start to use it, we will create surveillance to determine if there are other side effects that crop up later. And if there are, we will know which vaccines It's related to and we'll be able to modify the program accordingly. What's your concern level? Because we've been in the state in this country for the last 10 years, I would say where we've had this backlash against vaccines and a lot of terrible myths have been spread that have led to an increase in measles and all sorts of other things that had pretty much been wiped out. So here now we have Most important time in modern history, where we've needed people to believe in and be willing to take vaccines. How what's your level of concern that once we do have a vaccine that you feel good about that there's going to be a lot of people saying I'm not taking that vaccine. There will be a lot of people saying that, But as long as we have gone through the rigorous scientific and critical evaluation, I think the medical profession will understand that. They will buy in if you will, and they will provide information and reassurance to people. We don't expect everyone to line up on day one to roll up their sleeves. We will do this over a period of many, many months, and we will have many opportunities to answer questions and provide reassurance. And explicit information about how well the vaccine works or doesn't work. So we need to do this over time, and we need to do it clearly and transparently and as a footnote, I'm going to say that there's been so much political interest in the vaccine. We hope that once we get close to release The politicians. All of them will stay aside and let the public health scientists provide the information to begin to restore some confidence in this process. Sure. So let me ask you let's jump back to say 50%. I think I'd even read that Some people said Hey, even if it was 30%, we need to start getting people who who have a vaccine so we can start limiting the amount of people that are going to catch this, which then leads to more people spreading, etcetera. My concern comes in that wants this vaccines out there say it's 50% effective. So 100 Million people take it. That means 50 million people are still in danger of catching cove it but we're all as we do You know you had this complaint. Every year I took the flu shot. I still got the flu. We don't talk about that. Yes, it's going to limit the spread. But not everybody is going to necessarily be helped by it. Or there'll be a different strain of the flu, etcetera, etcetera. So how important is going to be the communication that you've gotten the vaccine now? You still need to wear masks because we've already seen a lot of people that don't like doing the things that need to be done before the vaccine. Once they get the vaccine, you've got to be concerned that people would say Yeah, I get the vaccine. I don't have to worry about anything now. Well bless you met. You've already gotten the word because I think all of us in public health and certainly on the political side. Have not let people know that once we start using a vaccine that doesn't mean you can throw your mask in the trash. Oh, no, you're going to have to keep doing that. The social distancing the avoiding large groups because the vaccine is unlikely to be perfect and because it will take so long to vaccinate sufficient numbers. Of people, So we're goingto have to keep up everything. Vaccines will be hugely important as a measure to combat Cove it but we can't rely on it as the on ly measure to protect us against Cove it We're going to have to continue for months to do the other things and we'll need to do them together in parallel simultaneously. And it will take months. This is a marathon, not a sprint were speaking with Dr William Schaffner, professor in the division of Infectious Diseases at Vanderbilt, when we come back flew in season is all flew and cold Season, especially the flu season is about upon us. So what about flu shots? And what do we need to do?

"It's still that one time show 6157379986615737 Deputy in there for you. Ah, years. Oh, yeah. I want to get to this too, because we went over this last week. This sort of goes in the mail in ballot thing. The difference between absentee and mail in ballots and we went we went over this last week. But this is a piece from Sara Carter. It's actually written by been holding thing. Ben Wilson. Says Every U S state allows absentee voting that is, if you cannot physically go to your polling location in person on election Day of balance sent to you by the male. Typically, several states require an explanation Be given for why you can't vote in person historically. These ballots were only available for military personnel in American citizens overseas, those out of town or those who are ill, according to CNET. These ballots are now widely used across the nation. Due to the pandemic, 35 states have changed their absentee voting policies to allow anyone to apply for one Hoping to lessen the spread of virus now. We just put my finger there. I have no problem with them. I have no problem with that at all. If you want to request a ballot, have one sent to you. I ain't got no problem with that at all. We'll feel what's your problem Male imbalance. My problem is, it's really the mail out part of it, not the mail in That may allow part of just arbitrarily mailing out ballots to everybody who's on the voter role is a recipe for disaster. That's the problem. Anyway, back to this Some states have deemed this No excuse. Absentee voting, meaning of voter doesn't have to give an explanation this cycle, but they do still have to apply for the ballot. Some states are sending applications for absentee ballots out to all voters. These request forms have been mistaken his mail in ballots across social media, as reported by CNN. While this promotes widespread voting through the mail, it is not a mail in ballots. Mail in ballots are said to every eligible voter in the state without any request or explanation needed. So that's why I'm coming. That's the difference. Several states, including California in Washington are sending legitimate ballots, toe every voter in the state whether or not they want one. Other terms for this are all male voting and universal vote by mail. I think it would just start calling it mail out. Voting instead of mail in voting. People will understand. Maybe they will. The term can mean different things in various states. Mail in voting can mean no excuse. Absentee voting orca mean universal vote by mail. Be sure your state's plan method Check with your state's board of elections. Other methods to cast a vote include early voting, which is an in person option. A CZ select polling locations or good old voting in personal election day. So there's several other ways, but the difference is Blankets send out balanced everybody who's registered. That's what people are leased. Some people, including me and Trump. I don't think that's a good idea. I think that's a recipe for disaster. But if you're talking about Requesting an absentee ballot because you don't want to go to the polls because Corona virus I think that's what absentee ballot was really made for. I mean that and being out of town. Or you can get the poles. But if you are concerned, if you're that much and look I'm not going to call your name. I'm just going to say there's some of you folks who don't need to be around other people. We've talked about this. If you're in the high risk categories, then you probably need to request an absentee ballot just to be safe, and you can do that in Tennessee. What Tennessee shot down was the mail out mallet thing. But you can still do an absentee ballot. It's legal in every state. But you have to request it and it sent to you. And then you send that thing back in if you voted. And it's a simple, isn't it? There's no problem with that whatsoever. So, of course again. The left is going to try to distort this issue and not and act like there's no distinction between the two when there's a huge distinction. Quick timeout 6157379986 We're back after this information, opinion driven Super talk 99 7 from the W T and New Center. I'm Pamela for with your top stories.

Preliminary results from the first vaccine tested in the US Are promising their face one studies, but it's a good first step. It looks as though the vaccine generated a vigorous immune response. We like that. We think that's going to be associated with protection. Better built university vaccine expert Dr William Schaffner.

"Affected Wall Street college athletics and even the entertainment world Dr William Schaffner an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt Medical Center this morning talked about the significance of community transmitted cases what a community transmitted means is that it's not directly related to an imported case something that came from outside the United States this virus is now being transmitted in our population person to person it's immigrated it's here and so I think as we test more often we're going to find more cases and more of them will be such community acquired cases demonstrating that the virus is transmitted in our population but we have seemingly limited testing capacity here in the U. S. right now give us an idea of how we can keep up with this the testing issue has been a conundrum I think we finally have the testing laboratory capacity both on the public side through state health departments and now through the private side with major commercial laboratories but Jenny specimens to those places still is a difficulty I keep hearing from doctors that they're having a hard time submitting their specimens to both the public side and to the private side we've got to open those testing doors otherwise we won't be able to define how widespread this viruses in our country well news like all of this can be pretty unnerving obviously there are ways to attempt to stay healthy are the messages people are receiving on trying to ward this off the right messages that you've heard so far all right thanks the messages about social distancing are absolutely on the mark and my impression is that people are trying to integrate those messages and bring them down to the personal level what can we do in our family and what can I do myself in order to avoid getting infected and in the business and professional sector for sure nobody's having face to face meetings anymore they're all virtual meetings or moving in that direction people are not going on trips when they can have Skype meetings and such so people are trying to do that the notion is that this virus is transmitted so readily face to face within three feet of each other that the less contact we have Billboard distance between us the less likely the viruses to spread around and affect those.
