And it became increasingly obvious that he was a lefty. And he left Fox News, presumably of his own will, and started a daily new show at CNBC that nobody watches. But here's what he said about COVID. I've got a confession. I'm sick of COVID. Don't get me wrong. I mean, I'm sad for the sick and dying. Obviously, frontline workers and medical professionals, your heroes. So grateful for your sacrifices for all of us. And I follow all of the rules. Every one of them.

I'm sick of talking about it and I am definitely sick of reporting on it every single day. It's too much. There's too much confusion and it's too political. Again, this is coming from the left.

Last Year's Heroes, This Year's Scapegoats: Frontline Workers Livelihoods at Stake Over Vaccine Mandates
"Unvaccinated. Healthcare workers are being fired in america. They've now got a nursing nursing shortage in new york 'cause they're firing nurses and medical personnel. Who don't wanna get vaccine the vaccine but unvaccinated illegals or pouring into the united states. What kind of a funny farmer we in. I really do feel like we're going crazy. Here is tucker last night with no power whatsoever. Who worked around sick people for the duration of deadly pandemic and rather than thank them. Were firing them. With no unemployment benefits and no health insurance and a lot of them state of new york for example the deadline for healthcare workers. The vaccine is already passed. according to most recent figures. Sixteen percent of the state's hospital workers eighty three thousand people remain unvaccinated. Eight percent of those workers have not gotten a single dose of the vaccine that they're going to be fired so the question is once again who's going to staff the hospitals in the middle of this public health crisis. Well that's an easy answer. According to the new governor of new york one no one voted for the state of new yorkers gonna use the military to do it and then hire temp workers from the philippines it's lunacy and by the way once again why exactly are all these healthcare workers thousands of them nationwide refusing to get the covert vaccine that is entirely fair question and no one is asking it. It might be worth finding out. You can't see this you. People don't understand the science in fact they might know more about covert and healthcare than your average democrat governor. Considering that's what they do for a living they treat people with cova every single day. So it's not like they're uninformed what is this exactly. It's not a few people it's thousands of people why no one cares punish them. The weakest now crushed meanwhile is for firing nurses and doctors were beating thousands of illegal immigrants into this country right now many of them infected with diseases including cove it. You're not supposed to say that because it's some sort of slur but it's factually true. Might be the smartest most profound voice on cable

She didn't do that. She went she got involved in a campaign to make sure that the next james deal would be caught a lot more easily by making stalking an actual crime which it isn't in this country. It might be soon. His video put up by senator Lisa chambers the crime of stalking has a very severe and long lasting impact on the victim. Long after the situation has the current harassment laws do not adequately cover the series is about the crime or the impact on the victim. We must listen to victims. Take our need from ben and framing the law in this area. I have been working closely with inner ring on east. Mcdougal the co-founders of stalking arms to bring to the owner. Good morning. good morning. Thanks for having me on again to speak with you again. And first of all you heard those clips. They're back in february. When you were still shaky going to test goes how you know like a little bit better it is. It is still very much with me. Which i didn't think it would be but it is very much with me. I i think it was more ingrained. My mind than i than i initiate taller like. I think i saw him in killer. There one day nearly crashed the car. You know this kind of thing. I'm still checking the back seat before i get into the Checking the doors locked. So yeah it is. It is very much there I still won't go for welcome my own as much as a you know. Stupid very aware of my surroundings. I suppose it does. It does change you as a person em it changes how you view the world Everybody is kind of a danger. I suppose on until they go pasture so it is it does. The trauma does does linger on. Actually it's it's linger longer than than what i call. I mean it's it's it's fine it's manageable but it does change it just completely changes the other person and i'm sure anybody who's gone through has gone through Would agree with me You'll you don't just overcome us you know. Have you help yeah like i. I'm i'm done my counseling. No but i'm still in contact with my concert are and i'm on very good medication. Which is working extremely bad. So it's it's just it. It keeps me calm. You know because before. I was a nervous wreck so that the medication is very goto I'm sure it would be on it for a very long time. But you know what abusers if it's if it's helping because there is a bit of a stigma attached to medication for mental has a fate if it's if it's working day on a general stay at. That's not the time to go off if you had to pain in your back and the doctor said take a tablet every morning and the pain will ease you. Take a tablet every morning without without a shadow without. You wouldn't even think twice about asking. Now you would have been forgiven. Has said that in the introduction you would have been forgiven for going home locking the door and working on getting on with your life but you. Didn't you got together and you worked on. Getting the law changed and it may be about to competition. Yeah yeah yeah it's It's getting there definitely like it's going to. It's going to the tar. Stage next next. tuesday is to committee. Stage happens to next tuesday. So it's it's going along faster than what we all we were able to watch which was brilliant The iraq debate live. Last night was on for an hour and a half and There was just fear. Support cross parakeet support all the political parties. There were all supporting us and it was really great to watch and no. It was called a debate. There was very little to debate because everybody was in favor of us. The minister Say after like why. It hadn't been been abroad through already. And why they're happy with what they have and in fairness to lisa chambers she just do shredded shredded. Everything in a very in a very dignified manner. You know reminded listeners. Who who are aware they believe or they say that it's currency covered under harassment legislation Where harassment not. What was done to me exactly exactly because like the i suppose the end result for for harassment is just to get inside. Somebody's head on kind of freak them out. Make them uncomfortable. Am the end game. Far stalking is is rape or murder. Like lying really you know So like when one. When i was being messaged an an ryan on the phone and stuff that that that was harassment when he's creeping around your house and have to see your box in case patras going to be poor throw when the guards sitting outside your your hosts every night that that's pure stalking you know and it's the the end is the end result is their end goal. I suppose is key care like the on in harassment and stalking two very different things. Why do you think that the department of justice is so insistent speaking through its minister so insisted that what's there already is enough. I don't i i actually. I don't know. I can't grasp why they're not jumping to get this done I suppose the only thing is like if they walked in my shoes of donors the day after the court case in all. It's m it's a. It's a horrendous thing for anybody to feel that they're being watched and the justice that the discomfort of new boat and a no. Somebody's watching. it's it's horrendous. And if that happened you know to somebody who can change this than it would have been changed like. There was one of the politicians last night. She was a very woman. She stood up at the office. And she she. She kind of went through For two years and i it was harboring Fierce in her voice and this was something like ten years ago in all There is such support forest in such cross party support forest. And they just like. They're they're quoting stuff. That was done in nineteen ninety-seven Twenty four years ago. You know w- like you. You can't say something back in twenty twenty four years ago is adequate. Now you know so you know the is for change is it. What drives you wanna take.

We can't get the time off for already entitled to and if you give us money great but give us a once-off cash payment that wouldn't be subject to tax. That might be acceptable as thank you. Evelyn was onto us to say so happy to hear michelle speaking this morning. One hundred percent support from plant workers. I recently spent a nice in the d. at u. h. Wasn't opener like everyone else. I've been hearing for ages now. About how hectic things are in hospitals all over the country especially since covert. I received excellent care and attention but they observed overworked and exhausted staff of nurses and doctors. I genuinely fear for their health. Their physical mental and emotional wellbeing. How they continue to work in that hectic and demanding environment day after day giving the excellent care they do is completely beyond me. It is beyond time to call our government. And hey jesse too. Serious and proper in depth look at the health system and specifically those working on the frontline and to honestly and objectively identify end address the systemic and management failures that are contributing to this situation. Have we all become so desensitized to report the number of patients on trolleys that we've forgotten what that must actually feel like for the patient for the families watching or in this current situation waiting for updates as they can't be there and most importantly for the staff caring for these people day after day with no letter or end in sight skipping breaks finishing a twelve hour shift exhausted knowing. They'll face the same situation when they come back. The following day would employees in the private sector. Puerto with that we need to take action now to insist that these professionals are minded by the very organizations who employ and represent them here. They're please listen to their needs. Ease their workload improve their working. Conditions equip them to be the wonderful conditions. They are forget about clapping for health. Heroes that is make an actual difference without these from professionals. We don't have a health service. It's beyond time to make these changes. let's stand up and be counted. let's be heard. It's not good enough for these patients and healthcare professionals. They are families. Our friends our neighbors and they deserve better. I'm not too sure. There's a better way to express that opinion line on courts six. Fm car insurance creeped call in person or call them now. They just talked to talk. They walked along the best music.

Leaving group of frontline workers. I forgot peter. hynes said. They didn't mention the farmers and peter. Sorry am says did mentioned the. Td's i think tom's tone dirty firmly in his cheek there. Come back to it though. There's still more coming in about the idea. How is it. How would we say. Thank you to those who worked when the rest of stayed at home. Who went and continued to keep the place turning over when the rest of us were staying home and hoping this whole blasted thing would go away. Eighteen fifty seven one five nine nine six. I remember the time. I spoke forced to luna ring. It was literally the day or the evening after. James steele had been jailed for five years. He pleaded guilty to a series of offenses at home between february and july of twenty twenty should met him at work. James seed was from rest cavalry and she on the day of the court case she spoke to me about just how frightened she'd been by him and at the time when in purdue for the gods content at her house i felt. I felt safer knowing. Got the guards roadside. Because those were the hours he was around. Yeah and i didn't think he'd call the day life and you know during the summer like of from five o'clock on starting to get price and people are going to work for a. I spent safe off that they were there and knowing that there were there they were gonna stay there you know they. They said no matter what happens on that. This car is not going to budge. You know also Like that was great security for me. They were fantastic for you. In fairness went they they just they they. They really couldn't have done any more than what they did. Like they went above and beyond like Say this too. Numerous to mention. But jim heffernan was the guard that the tax him outside my house and sturgeon sharks. Sorry john sharkey was myth we all the way up through general all the other things so they they were just too. They're they're just very very very good people. I really really are divorced. Radio interview that had given and she spoke to me on the opinion in back in february of both even though he was in jail she was still afraid. She'd come across james steel. That was how much played with her mind now. Like i feel kind of saying you're safe. you're safe. I kinda have to persuade myself. Thought i'm saying if i'm out in both but i'm i was obsessively checking the doors no with stone to a call today. Like as opposed to every hour even though he's no behind bars can do no harm anymore. You're still left with this. Legacy of checking doors. Yeah and the other thing is because i suppose because of his age and the color of his hair like there's a lot of people that's from the back look like him and you kind kinda get a you know if you see somebody you know. I'm sure that would save time. Also but at the moment it's like last week i was in tesco's and there was a man from behind look very similar. I just gotta start. You know indoor. I knew i knew it wasn't you couldn't possibly be him. Bush you do just got the shock. The mind plays tricks.

US Panel Backs COVID-19 Boosters Only for Seniors, High-Risk
"September twentieth was supposed to be an important date an approval from the food and drug administration. The cdc's committee of outside experts will be ready to start. These booster's booster program. During the week of september twenty weeks ago. The white house told us that starting september twentieth today americans would likely be able to sign up for a co vaccine. Booster shots visor. Certainly thinks it's vaccine needs a booster. The drug maker itself suggested after six months it's vaccine efficacy could wayne so on friday. Fda advisors met to discuss the idea of boosters but they emerged with a surprise recommendation of their own vote did not have. The majority voted no rather than agreeing with a vaccine maker rather than agreeing with some of the top scientists and the biden administration the fda advisory panel announced. That booster shots should be available soon but only for senior citizens and other select groups some important distinctions. Here let's break it down with. Abc's aimed flaherty who covers federal agencies. And and what is the actual recommendation here like. Who's going to be able to get a booster shot and win right. So i think it's important to remember. The fda actually hasn't decided yet. This is an advisory panel that was looking at the data and they were only looking at data that related to pfizer. So this is the first vaccine that rolled out. It rolled out mostly to nursing homes and health care workers more than nine months ago and what they did was. They looked at a lot of data. That was coming out of israel to determine whether or not people need a booster thaw back. The booster do improved protection by tenfold against confirmed infection and for elderly against superior kobe. Nineteen day said. They don't think boosters for all makes sense they think seniors and people who are at high risk of severe covet those two groups they think should have to go back and get an extra booster and they also said that they support people who are at serious risk because of their job so frontline workers healthcare workers even teachers. They mentioned they think those people might wanna consider getting extra
US FDA Recommends Booster Jabs for Over 65s
"Few days before the official start of fall. What was billed as the summer of freedom has come and gone on the national mall more than six hundred thousand flags one for each life loss to covert the sea of white representing unfathomable and devastating toll. Just three months ago the. Us daily case average was nearing a record low about eleven thousand new cases. Now we're averaging about one hundred forty three thousand cases per day reporting roughly one million cases over the last week and while president biden hoped an fda advisory panel would recommend boosters for all vaccinated americans on friday. The panel voted to recommend boosters only for those sixty five and older or at high risk of severe disease. Dr anthony found. She is standing by joins us in just a moment. But we begin with the latest on that fda recommendation and what it all means for some of the most vulnerable as the school year gets underway. It was just last month at president biden. Laid out his plan for booster shots. These booster program is start here. September twentieth pending approval. Fda cdc committee outside experts that approval did not come for everyone and while the handled did not officially vote on it they do support including vulnerable populations like teachers healthcare and other frontline workers in this first round but when it comes to ending the pandemic the message remains clear to vaccinate the unvaccinated. While seventy six percent of adults have received. at least one dose the millions of unvaccinated americans are fueling hospitalizations and directly impacting. Some of the most vulnerable children
Biden Announces Vaccine Plan for Employers
"Vaccine requirements just announced by president biden are not out of the blue. They're not even the first ones we had for. Covert nineteen as new york times notes today. We've already got experience with large employers starting to require vaccination at among other things. But we've learned from that experience so far. Is that the requirements work. They succeed at their goal of getting more people to get the shot last month. For example the pentagon announced that active duty military personnel would have to get vaccinated that has just been announced so far. They haven't hit a deadline for it yet. But already the proportion of active duty personnel. Who had the shot has gone from. Seventy six percent to eighty three percent. Same deal with the. Va seven weeks ago. The va told its frontline. Health workers they had to get the shot since then the number of va frontline workers who've been vaccinated has gone from seventy seven percent up to eighty two percent and still rising same deal at private sector employers like united airlines for example employees. There were told last month that they'd have until october. Twenty fifth to get vaccinated. Well s- only september tenth. Now there's still plenty of time before that deadline hits but already just since laying out that eventual requirement the majority of united airlines workers who weren't vaccinated before that announcement have since become vaccinated. We know it works and we've had plenty of other vaccine requirements throughout our history. That have also worked. But as the president indicated today we also know that republican governors and republican elected officials will sue and try to stop these new policies as if they're totally novel as if this is some brand new idea. The united states supreme court has ruled multiple times going back more than a century that it is not unconstitutional to require americans to get a vaccine. Even if a person doesn't want to in the context of a serious public health threat you can be required to be vaccinated. They ruled that way back in one thousand nine five in the context of mandatory smallpox vaccine requirement in massachusetts. They ruled that way in nineteen twenty two in the context of vaccines being required of students if they wanted to attend
Kathy McCollum, Mother of Fallen Marine, Is Against Biden's Vaccine Mandate
"Talking about frontline workers. And how they needed to be vaccinated. And my son was the ultimate frontline worker. You know what I mean? Yeah, my son was the ultimate frontline worker. He just sacrificed his life. To appease a president who was trying to appease China and appease Russia and remove himself from Afghanistan so that China could take over our airports. Two. It is the most disgusting thing in the entire world. And sir, I will talk to you about any topic you would prefer to talk about. I'm well versed in all of them. Um the whole mask mandate is absolutely disgusting. Mhm, the taking away of our liberties. Is absolutely absurd. Um, my boyfriend is a, um I won't say where he works. No, but they're telling him he now has to be mandated. Um, to have a vaccine and he's going to refuse it. He is an Iraqi war veteran, and he is not going to Cal towel. I believe both of us have already been exposed to Covid and I will not give in. I will not be vaccinated for a Uh, whatever disease I've already had. I will not do it, and he will not either, but for Biden to come on and tell the world that the First. You know, the frontline workers are so important when he didn't give a crap about my son. And when I was in Dover Watching my son. Come off that plane, and Biden was sleeping, walking like a zombie trying to get up the plane ramp. Never once did. He acknowledged me. I

The Mask-Mandate Debate Is Back as COVID-19 Cases Surge in the U.S.
"In the us in that fourth wave of covert. There could be a major shift in the cdc's mask recommendations men. An alarming number of new cases. Nationwide making fitzgerald has the latest tonight. The worst case scenario among the unvaccinated. If you're like going back into battle again and it's definitely it's definitely a another way. The highly contagious delta variant fuelling a surge of new cases across the country dire warnings from the nation's top. Dr going into the fall with the delta variant we could have a really serious problem with a considerable surge of infections the variant sweeping through the south texas arkansas and florida accounting for forty percent of new cases in the country but in miami thousands packing a stadium for a live concert here literally drowning and people as the cdc now says they could recommend mass for the fully vaccinated indoors joining cities like los angeles. St louis and new orleans but in arkansas a new law banning mass mandates goes into effect. This week it's important and not to have the current debate about mask wearing but have the current emphasis on getting a vaccine only forty nine percent of the country's fully vaccinated those without the shots making up ninety nine point five percent of cova deaths frontline workers once again with urgent please to the public. We are seeing younger patients. All unvaccinated are sicker. Dr michael building has been working in the cove award in fayetteville arkansas.

The union collie more people vaccinated less pain and suffering and call less families to tell them their their loved. Ones didn't make it.
The Problem With Post-Pandemic Work
"So anna last time we talked. I think last time we talked. We were talking about pandemic work burnout. But what's happening with workers. Now that places are beginning to open up again and people are going back to work or their workplace. They're getting more normal. Yeah unfortunately what we sort of have happening is boston. Employers kind of acting like the pandemic never happened or kind of hoping we all pretend like the pandemic never happened. That looks a lot of different ways. You know it looks like asking. Frontline workers to come back but not necessarily paying them more You know paying them. Kinda pre pandemic wages even though they're not working under prepayment conditions. You know it looks like rolling back. Some of these pay increases that we saw during the height of the pendant mc last year. It also looks like you know four sort of white collar jobs. We saw kind of a remote work revolution in the last year but some companies kind of want to forget about that are just saying you know. Only office work works. You gotta come back into the office. All the stuff is problematic. Given that we do still have pandemic going on right and you know a lot of people are vaccinated but some people aren't yet a lot of frontline workers haven't actually had the chance to get vaccinated yet and we also know that people who are immuno-compromised might not be protected even if they are accident that's also a time when mass mandates and other restrictions are lifting so for folks who aren't vaccinated. Things might be more dangerous than ever in certain ways so weird. Transitional time and employers aren't necessarily always being respectful of that.

Too Soon? The CDC Relaxes Mask Guidance for Fully Vaccinated
"Okay ellison aubrey. Since the new mass guidance from the cdc came out different groups. Industries have responded. Let's start with businesses. Sure i mean. Many of the big retailers are dropping their masking requirements including walmart. Costco starbucks walmart says. It supports employees. Who may choose to continue to wear masks. Even if they're fully vaccinated and all of these chains are encouraging people who are not vaccinated to continue to mask now over the weekend cd. Rochelle walinsky was pressed about the new policy and she cautioned. That masks will be with us for a while. Likely said a lot of people are not vaccinated and they should be masking in many settings. He or she is on nbc. This was not permission to shed masks for everybody everywhere. This was really science driven individual assessment of your risk. And now we all need to work together and cdc is hard at work now saying what does this mean for schools for travel for camps for businesses. I think what she's getting at here. Mattie is there is more guidance to come now. They've shifted this strategy unmasking. A lot of the other guidance for what to do in the office what to do in schools will need to get looked at again reviewed now given how hard it is to police the new policy. I mean it's hard to know who is or isn't vaccinated. This really just comes down to the honor system and dr walinsky ask people to be honest with themselves because people who are not vaccinated are putting themselves at risk. Yeah i i mean alison. This was the part kind of blew me away. I mean this puts the burden on individuals to do the right thing by themselves and also by others. And i i don't know i don't think we have evidence that an honor system will work in the us especially with the stakes being this high. Well there definitely are critics. Marc perron is president of the united food and commercial workers international union which represents about one point three million frontline retail and grocery store workers. He says the guy insists confusing. And that the cdc has failed to consider how it will impact essential workers who face frequent exposure to people who are not vaccinated. And some refuse to wear masks. I think that the guidance should busy. People should wear masks at least until we get to that herd immunity number. We're not there yet. We only have about forty percent of the population fully vaccinated and i. I think that we could have waited another couple of months. And there's also similar concern from nurses mattie leaders of the national nurses united which is the largest union of registered nurses in the. Us say the new policy threatens the lives of patients nurses and other frontline workers across the

It's hard to imagine what are the big corporate publishing houses? You know paying Random House Schuster. Putting out a novel that has written by Mexican author that takes place in Revolutionary Russia and Bogalusa knows that one thing I do see an. I always complain about is. How Fair is that English publishing system? We've writers of our continent that writing Spanish. Shave find it very disgusting. Karmanos right Will Evans Runs Deep Ellum nonprofit publisher in Dallas that specializes in international literature. He says the five big publishers have a narrow lens of what they want from writers. If it's Latin America that means immigration and Crime. It's Russia then politics you know when we publish writers from Russia to Russian writers are often misunderstood. Because if it's not directly address included in his system like directly then these writers are often not published. Evans says that's why literature from Mexico and the rest of the world is so rarely published here in the US. The big publishers control most of the market so only three percent of the books published in the United States. Every year are translated from other languages and then says writers like cut him in Georgia and for the short. We'll hear from earn minute or just a sampling of rich traditions. That is what is great about Mexican literature is that you can write like a central European. You can write like in East Asian writer you could write like an American writer. You can write like Mexican writer because Mexico is as much in the center of the world is. Us's everywhere is the center of the world so that the people who were there.

"We've all seen the various reports about how long corona virus remains active uncertain services. A study in the Netherlands has found corona virus in sewage. Hurt John Maeda is one of the authors of the report. He's a professor of the K. W. R. Water Research Institute and at Delft University of Technology. I thought first of all Hurt on that. The gut was capable of killing corona virus. So how do you actually find it in human feces? Well it's actually quite commonly found in human feces and the most recent reports that are emerging state that even his high as fifty percent of people reported with Kofi Nineteen shed virus in their stool and also that the virus can multiply within the industrial track. Not only the lungs but also in the intestines so does the virus remain active once. It's in sewage and our sewage workers at risk. Yeah that's a question that many people have in and around to where community if I can call it that researchers have relooking in stool have been trying to cultured if out of tools and there are two reports from China showing that they can do it but only with a few cases in a report from Germany that stay calms so we think that the infectivity of the virus may not be that high end devices. Not Very robust. So that's in the sewer system which is a hostile environment for the virus. That's it will rapidly be inactivated if its effects. Your says still after being shed of course. are filled with all kinds of nasty bugs so there are normal. Protective measures protective equipment are recommended for certain activities where to exposure viscous? High older recommendations are at these normal protective measures also protect against this new virus. How rapidly would corona virus die off in silicon? And what are the risks for the general public? We don't have data yet on inactivation in sewer systems we have inactivation data of what? I- tentacle is nephew. One virus with the epidemic net. Two thousand two and three. The data suggests that it dies within two days at twenty degrees and within two weeks at four degrees in source systems so that is more rapidly than most of the viruses. Did we already know about? It are transmitted through the water borne twenty degrees Celsius about seventy Fahrenheit. So you studied waste. In the city of Amersfoort found the virus before any cases were reported there and individuals. Is that a clue as to how your discovery might be useful in dealing with the corona virus. We feel that with this. Particular virus has more shook relation than we see in the the numbers of the health surveillance. And that's why I think which is particularly helpful in understanding this wider circulation of the virus. And maybe even earlier than the health surveillance I think. We were five days to a week earlier than reported case. So if you could use case then I think you can. At least have early warnings to see if virus enters the community or if it re emerges again for instance in the winter so I think yes which veins concertedly complement. What we do in health surveillance and probably serve as an early warning to. I mean it. Sounds like a crucial way of tracking spread tracking sewage and a relatively straightforward way with one sample. We can sample ten thousand or a hundred thousand. People so surveillance appears to be pretty sensitive. Her Tianhe made him a CO author to report on Tracking Corona virus in human sewage. He's professor at the K. W. R.

Today is is literally America. It's absolutely incredible. Plus American Fulbright scholar in Beijing takes on a new job getting medical equipment in China for US hospitals. The store is still ahead here on the world ask any New Yorker and they'll tell you Bodega are important fixture. In their city the small corner stores sell everything from milk and eggs to cat food and rolling papers but with the corona virus. Many of these stores are shutdown. Ones that are still open face. A huge challenge had to keep running while making sure the staff stay safe. Here's the world's Sharon Jafari step outside. Twenty Naseem Unknown. Tasers has been helping out his parents grocery store in Brighton. Beach Brooklyn is a college student but now that schools are closed. He's spending more time at the. Bodega gets very busy. I mean we sell fruits and vegetables and krona wires pandemic has ravaged of York City. Somebody goes shutdown of cut their hours but for the Montas or family things have gone the opposite direction demand skyrocketed and so now seems parents decided to keep the store open twenty four hours a day. It's good business for short but nothing says it's also stressful. I have never thought of fear going to work. Simple fear like waking up the next and not of the fear comes from not having enough protective gear. Like masks and gloves. It's been over a month where we've been using the same gloves. We've been using the same gloves. We've been using the same masks and that's unsanitary itself. Bootlegger's can be a Cornell.

Ninety percent of Yemeni Americans are actually merchants the be Montasser Hits The Yemeni Merchants Association a group that represents more than four thousand small business owners across New York City. She says when the outbreak began many Buddha go workers didn't realize how serious it is because many of our Bodega owners as well as their workers. Were you know twelve to fourteen hour shifts? They don't have the luxury to follow the news and to you know. Keep up to date on on everything.

Latex gloves that they can use you know during their operating hours these items have been in short supply in New York City Atlanta says. She's relied on personal contacts to get a hold of masks and gloves from China. She says the city has agreed to waive tariffs on. The New York. City has a department that works with small businesses. I asked them about protective gear for Bodega workers and they didn't respond others. Zendani is a daily shop. Employee tells me his still waiting on new masks. Just one mass has been on me for a week and a half now which you're supposed to change every six hours. Sudani is a high school student.

I worked a couple of blocks from the Brooklyn Hospital which also has two trailers where all the dead bodies are in and then he says it gives him chills to think about the trailers sometimes the nurses from the hospital stop by the store. They come and they tell us experience like what they have that they see people dying in front of their their own is which is very sad they give him advice on how to sanitize surfaces in the daily and how to keep safe his doing his best says but he knows coming into work is risky so I get home and it's hard as soon as I walked into the house. I don't want to like for example. Catch it while outside and pass it on to my sisters and my family and I have my grandma. She's upstairs where she's in. She's pretty old and I don't want to pass that on Civil Bodega workers. Tell me they feel like they don't have a choice. But to keep their businesses open their neighbors depend on them and they have bills to pay to. Here's Anisimov Montazeri again. We are thus seen right. We are what's going on in New York City people coming to us. A lot of supermarkets are closed. You know we really need people to take this seriously so far. The Yemeni Merchants Association knows about these sixty five per data employees who've tested positive for covert nineteen. It says more than a dozen people have died from the disease for the world. I'm sharing Jafari Adam. Carter was a fulbright scholar teaching eighth grade and Beijing when the corona virus outbreak hit his school shutdown with his newfound extra time he got an idea work as a middleman. Help supply chinese-made masks and gloves to hospitals back in the states. That were desperate for them. It seemed like a no brainer. But then Adam Carter actually tried it. I wish I could sit here and tell you that it's been a massive success in that. I've successfully sent over millions of of masks but actually it's been a lot more difficult than anticipated. I've learned a lot about the industry here and a lot about the current situation in some of those roadblocks. So how much have you had connecting Chinese suppliers of PB? Things like masks and gloves back to hospitals in need in the US. Well I've been really careful not to push through any deals that are in jeopardy of arriving not getting through customs and the safest way to get around that is to really buy them at a retail. An send them Fedex. So I've got a shipment of fifty k. And nine five masks on their way now to a family of doctors in Boston and I'm working with a local partner to try to push through some Some bigger bigger scale deals out. So that's where we're at right now. Has IT BEEN DISAPPOINTING? I mean it. It has been disappointing. I mean it's an education and I think any any industry we can't expect to step in and mastered. I didn't I didn't know the intricacies. I didn't know the level of bureaucracy that I was up against. Obviously you know we go in with good intentions and sometimes we learned. We learned a hard lesson. Luckily there were no deals went awry. And there's nobody missing any enduring thing so yes it's been disappointing. But at the same time we were moving forward and hoping that this new new partnership now will help us deliver. Some badly needed ep into to the states in and beyond. Explain how you came to all of this? How did you identify the need back in the states? I mean it's in Chicago specifically that you were intending to help out. And what roadblocks blocks did you encounter Connecting Chinese suppliers of personal protective equipment? Like mask and gloves. I was in touch with a friend of mine from Boston. Actually and her family are doctors and She contacted me and said her father's hospital was in need of some of these masks so I thought well it sure. Let me see what I can do. You know I started started doing some research and trying to find Chinese suppliers. That would be able to ship this stuff over there. What I've come to learn is that as one person told me it's belligerent. Chaos right now. Basically a lot of Chinese suppliers have started producing these P p. e. mainly because the economy obviously slowed here in China and a lot of factories found themselves idle and realize there's a huge demand so they started making these masks in equipment like that so as a result you have just a lot of new players. You really don't know who they and there's a lot of bureaucracy. Obviously certification that needs to be approved in their fide before it can be shipped out. You're also doing this in the midst of a pandemic we have to remember are. Are you concerned about getting? Infected Yourself No I'm I'm I'm really not concerned here in here. In China there have been no transmissions in China in the last few days in fact. I know Beijing has in the last week. We haven't even had any transmissions here so people are still being cautious but it seems like it's much safer to be your in China than it is to be back home. For example Adam. Carter was a fulbright scholar teaching eighth grade and Beijing. He's still in Beijing but is now trying to act as a broker. Connecting chinese-made p. p. e. two hospitals in the US at needed Adam. Thank you very much for speaking with us. It's been a pleasure moment but thank you. You might find what I'm about to say. Ironic but corona virus news is starting to feel like information overload. The important science is nonstop. The news updates our constant not everyone though on this planet is so hyper connected in Mexico. Radio stations are trying to fill in some critical gaps. Here's reporter Lorena Riaz. Every night at seven pm there some new ritual in Mexico when many people here a message they know by heart gave up in Gaza in Gaza. Stay home says Lopez thin- Mexico's deputy. Health Minister speaks with his team on stage at the National Palace. Mexico's White House. They go over. The latest corona virus numbers.

So he's he's on these fancy angles stupid she wears a wonder woman style. Leotard hot pink boots and she extends her arms out creating a bubble of distance around her.

I'm just really curious what this experience has been like for you specifically was there something with a pandemic that you did not really understand before taking this job and now you do get it. Yes so I have an issue with the rhetoric that this pandemic is the great leveler. I keep hearing this phrase everywhere and the great leveler. It's like kind of disease that we've been told will attack everybody regardless of wealth or class or CETERA which is true it does attack everyone but we don't experience it at similarly you know like self isolating in a mansion in the suburbs of California isn't like self-isolating in a refugee camp in northern Syria or in one of the Greek islands like Lesbos. Moria comes when you have access to medical health and when you can actually gets on events later on things Accelerates that's great but if you are in a refugee camp because I'm speaking as a refugee if you're in a refugee com there's no running water there is no hand sanitizers and you cannot technically self-isolation attendance. So I don't think is the great equalizer or the lever. I know it's we're all going through this but we are experiencing differently. There's a video that's been making the rounds in the UK. You've probably seen it. You Clap for me now.
