Moderna's Covid-19 Vaccine Is 94.5% Effective in Early Results, Firm Says
"Moderna has gone public with his experimental vaccine, the biotechnology firm says early results suggest that its vaccine is nearly 95% effective. Today's news follows a similar announcement from Fizer last week, and it leaves the incoming administration with the prospect that it will have a least to Corona virus vaccines to distribute and 2021 Dr. Celine Gounder is part of the President elect's Coronavirus Task Force. She's a clinical assistant professor of medicine and infectious diseases at New York University. She's also host of the podcast epidemic, and she joins us now, Dr Gounder. Welcome to one, eh? Great to be here. So what does it mean that two potential vaccines are both showing signs of success. Well, this is quite promising. Both appear at least based on the data we've seen so far to be over 90% effective in preventing disease. We don't yet know if these vaccines will prevent transmission from one person to another. But at least we know that they're they're very likely to protect us individually from severe disease. This is really a breakthrough. But we still have a lot of work ahead in terms of getting people vaccinated. It's not just about having a vaccine, but it needs to get into people to protect them. What's the timeline from here in terms of when we could possibly either see a vaccine approved but definitely on the distribution and as well? Well, I think you're going to see in the next couple of weeks. The submission to the FDA by both Visor and Madonna for emergency use authorization. They will continue to collect data on effectiveness and side effects as they start to ramp up vaccination in advance of an approval. But I think we're still looking at Really focusing on health care workers and other high risk populations in the first wave of vaccinations in at the end of this calendar year earlier early next calendar year. And we won't really see these vaccines available to the broader general public until at least April or may of next year, And that's because it takes time to manufacture. The millions the hundreds of millions of doses that we're going to need and to gear up in terms of the distribute that distributions supply chain and with the Fizer vaccine, there's a specific type of infrastructure needed. The story that it has to be. It started very cold temperatures. So how would that impact the possible world out of that vaccine? Well, that's right. So the Fizer vaccine requires ultra cold, ultra freezing minus 70 degrees Celsius. This is not something that you have in your regular family doctor's office s so it really is going to need to be stored. In central locations, perhaps hospitals, other pharmacy distribution centers, and so that does make it much more difficult. This is not something that you could, you know, disseminate to every single family Practitioners office and makes it more difficult, especially in rural areas to really scale of vaccinations. This is something people are thinking long and hard about right now. To figure this out. We got this question from Dr Swat on Twitter who says what have the potential side effects of the vaccines. And how much will they cost? Do you know that yet? Well, we don't have all of that information. Yet In terms of the Madonna vaccine, with the results of which were just announced, the side effects that we're seeing are pretty mild pain at the injection site, headaches, muscle pain on and it's a similar sort of profile with the fire advisor vaccine and really the kind of thing you see. With many vaccines in terms of cost. The Biden Harris transition team is very much committed to making sure that people who want to get vaccinated can get vaccinated for free. That's not just with respect to the vaccine itself, but with all of the other costs associated with getting vaccinated the doctor's visit The supplies. Unfortunately, one of the things we saw earlier this year with respect to testing was that the current administration had said Yes, people can get tested for free. But then people got surprised bills. Because there was still the cost of the doctor's office visit and so on. Are how closely are you working with the Trump Administration on a Corona virus response at this point Not at all. Um you know, a major challenge here is that the G s a needs to certify that we could move forward toe hand over the keys, so to speak, so we can enter the building so we can start to have these kinds of conversations in detail and so right now, pending the General Services Administration, signing off on Theologian results. We really are in a holding pattern on or not able to have those crucial discussions. So we got this question from Alicia on Facebook. Who says Can Biden's team start work now? The end of January so far off what? We lose progress? What are you able to do right now? Well, we can be interfacing with state and local government officials, public health officials, we could be reaching out to the private sector. Um, s O. We're certainly moving forward in terms of our own planning. But, you know, if you imagine that this is a war we're waging war on the current virus. And like any other war if we were in the middle of a world war and we didn't know where our aircraft carriers and our tanks and our troops were, it would be very difficulty to plan. A response s. Oh, it's it's very challenging, not to be given sort of that critical crucial What's really frankly national security information?
Seattle - Gov. Inslee orders sweeping restrictions on indoor gatherings, restaurants, bars, gyms as COVID-19 cases surge in Washington state
"There now more than 11 million confirmed cases of the Corona virus in the U. S and more than 246,000 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Rising numbers have governors around the country, ordering new restrictions and lockdowns, including in Washington state, will stone reports Corona virus infections are at an all time high in Washington, and cases had more than doubled in the past two weeks. That's led Governor Jay Inslee to put in place of four weeks. Statewide shutdown of much of the economy. We're facing a third wave that is training to be more dangerous than any we have seen before. In action here is not an option. Restaurants, gyms and other businesses will be closed except for outdoor service.

California seeing biggest jump in virus cases in months
"Virus cases since August in Los Angeles County continues to be the state's hottest Of Corona virus hot spots With more than 2200 new cases announced over the weekend L. A County health officials are recommending that people who travel quarantine for two weeks when they get back to the area in case they were exposed to the Corona virus. That's been the guidance for months. But it's KPCC is Jackie 48 reports. It's getting new attention as we head into the holidays, The Health Department's chief science officer, Dr Paul Simon, says more people are flouting restrictions and getting together with people outside of their household. I think there's a sort of a false sense of security. And given that many folks with infection maybe asymptomatic are at least initially, when they might be most infectious.

As virus cases rise across the U.S., records topple
"On Thursday, the number of Corona virus cases recorded daily in the U. S reached more than 86,000. Beating the record from last Friday. More than nine million Americans have now tested positive. David give us the countrywide snapshot over the past week. What's changed? Yeah, I think they're really bad. Suffice to say, and we've had a lot of records this week, nine million cases overall, more hundreds more than 25,000 deaths in the first case, I think was reported 282 days ago, and it's striking to me from North Carolina and yesterday that state had its highest daily total. It's had since the beginning of the pandemic and was one of I think, like 20 states where that was the case, so We're seeing these surges across the country in the majority of states for sure, and you look at a handful of them. They're in a situation that we were in here in New York early on, which is Having really concerned about their ability, hospitalized patients who need it. And you know, we do have a firmer grasp on how to treat Cove in 19. Fewer people are Being hospitalized for it generally, But in states like Wisconsin and Utah, you're hearing from health officials from government officials really concerned about their capacity of these hospitals, and it reminds me yes, of what things were like here in New York that summer, I was in Texas as well. I was in Houston when they were reaching capacity. They're in What is a city with the largest medical system in the world, and I will say, having reported on it. That fear is a crazy thing for a lot of people to think of the fact that there might not be enough beds to accommodate those who need them. I haven't mentioned deaths yet. That's obviously a lagging indicator, but we've seen those tick up in recent weeks. As well. So there is a real seriousness to this. That's been the case from Day one. It seems to be coming into finer focus, and we'll talk about this more. I'm sure of it really stands in contrast to the picture that President Trump and his supporters were painting of how this is affecting the country.

Q&A with Senate hopeful Daniel Gade
"Weeks away. But nearly 38 million voters have already cast their ballots. That includes roughly 1.5 million voters in Virginia, where incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Warner is facing off against Republican challenger Daniel Gate. In a state that's become increasingly blew some of called Gates Campaign a longshot recent polling shows Warner up by almost 16 point. We've had Senator Warner on the show twice this year, but we haven't heard from his opponent yet. And that changes today. Daniel Gate. Welcome to one, eh? It's a pleasure to be on Earth. You thank you so much. And we should note that Daniel was also a professor at American University, which holds the license for our parent station. W AM. You So you're a military veteran and a disability rights activists running for office for the first time. What made you decide to run? Well, you're right. I'm a military veteran. I spent 25 years in the U. S Army and was wounded in combat twice decorated for valor, gave a leg in combat my hip level amputee and then later went on to get a PhD and a master's degree in public policy working in both the Bush and the Trump administration, so I'm a public policy expert, and I consider this race an extension of my military service, in the sense that I've been under oath to the Constitution my whole life, and this is just more service as someone with a little experience in politics. You've been running in part on the idea that you're Ah Washington. Outsider. Why do you see that as an advantage? Well, it's an advantage because you know, I think Virginians are sick of and nationally you see people sick of career politicians who have done little to solve our problems. I'll give you a couple of examples. When Mark Warner took office in 2008, he pledged 2009. He was elected Noh eight, but he pledged to be a budget hawk and back Then the deficit was $12 trillion, and now it's something like $27 Trillion or the debt rather And on issue after issue. There's a history of broken promises here, and even the Washington Post's no friend of Republicans said that he had quote muddled through his time in the Senate with few signature accomplishments. That's from spring of 2019 so This is who the career politicians are, and people are sick of it. They want career servants, and I'm a career servant of the Constitution. And that's the fundamental difference between us. But Republicans have held a majority in the Senate for some time. So how much of that? Can you lay? At Senator Warren Warner's feet. Will remember at the beginning of his time in the Senate. Back in 09, 10 and 11. The Democrats had a super majority in the Senate, not just a majority, but a super majority and and the White House and for the bulk of his time in the Senate, the White House and the Senate have been Held by Democrats, So it's not. It's true that there has been some fiscal indiscipline by Republicans as well. And I'm not in favor of that, either. What? Explain a little bit one example. What approach which you take to fiscal responsibility if elected. Oh, sure, one thing we need and I know a lot of people talk about this, and then they get to Washington. See and forget about it. D C has proven that we need about balanced Budget amendment and it can have an escape hatch for emergencies with, you know, some kind of three quarters majority in both houses to override for a period of time and You can write it so that it's not a suicide pact. But we absolutely must have that. And that means we need to weigh need to take seriously our obligation to our future generations. And that's something that I care deeply about. Do you think there's a political will for that kind of move? No, there's not on Capitol Hill. Of course, there's not, And the reason there's not is because they all are feeding at the same trough, Republicans and Democrats alike. But there's absolutely political will for it on Main Street, and it's a very populist thing, people. That's what people want. People want Washington to spend within its means, just like every state has to and just like every family has to. So if this is not rocket science, so if you're critiquing both Democrats and Republicans for this issue, how would you shift that dynamic if you're elected? Well, The first thing is that we need to elect Republicans who have a spine and we need Teo and we need to work. Of course we need to work cross, but we also need to tie into our core principles and his Republicans. Far too often, We've abandoned our core principles in favor of short term gain. And so that's you know, that's a broad based critique of my party and of end of, frankly, the other party as well. There hasn't been a Republican elected to statewide office in Virginia for more than 10 years, and some of called your Senate run a serious long shot. What makes you think Virginia could shift red again? Well, a couple of things one is you know, in the last quarter, I actually outraised Mark Warner, which was fantastic. And and what we're seeing at the doors on our phone calls and in our polling is that when independence here about me And my bio just my history of service to the country and my qualifications for the office. The fact that I have a PhD in policy they're coming over 2 to 12 to one and part of that is Mark Warner's failures on you Know, he voted against Cove it really for Virginia families. He voted he put in a budget that defunded the police by $50 million in 2002 as governor. And when people discovered that kind of thing, they're like, Wait a second, he says. He's moderate. But in actuality he's not. And so that kind of betrayal is really digging in and people are sick and tired of it. Well as we speak. There's a debate in Congress

First presidential debate — Did we learn anything new about Trump and Biden?
"I think many people were turned off by the shouting, interrupting style of the debate tonight. Do you think that anybody's mind was changed to did anybody learn anything new about these two candidates? No, I don't think they learned anything new. I think we're going to find out from polls and focus group. If it changed anybody's minds. There weren't very many people who are persuadable to begin with. But I think that Donald Trump was so focused on trying to get Joe Biden rattled that he lost some opportunities to try to change the race from a referendum on him to a binary choice. And you know what wanna was talking about which was stunning to me is the question was, Will you ask your supporters to remain calm? And will you agree not to declare victory until all the votes are counted? And that Donald Trump very conspicuously, did not agree to do that.
California firefighters struggle to put out massive Bobcat fire
"Wildfire burning in southern California moved into more residential communities. Today, thousands of residents are under mandatory evacuation orders. Remember station KPCC Julia Paschen reports. Firefighters hoped a few days of cooler temperatures would help tame the bobcat fire in the Angeles National Forest. Instead, high winds pushed the flames north into the foothill communities above.

Some residents along the southern end of the fire have been allowed to return home as firefighters get a handle on the area near the fire's origin. While conditions have improved, the historic Mount Wilson Observatory remains under close watch. For

What with the tactics that drew scrutiny after the demonstrations formed outside ST Francis Medical Center. We'll let me share them with you. Some individuals who claim to be black lives. Activists showed up. At the hospital. Now the families are being rushed to the hospital. Obviously police, other police officers of going there as I'm sure you know, in a situation like this trying to get through to you. To donate blood, for example.

Whoever she is, basically stood down a crowd. They're going to go visit. Yeah, they're going to go visit. Finally there's a priest at the hospital who came out and talked about what is going on Cut 31 rub. Describe for me what the protesters were chanting. What were they saying? Well, they were saying death to the police killed killed the police and this our sheriff's, but the message is still the same. And they were using all type of curse words and and derogatory terms about the police just just provoking our police officers unacceptable behavior because the hospital should be a sanctuary where way should leave hospital alone. Tensions are high since two deputies are inside. Did you see the negatives make swift action. And he said that the protesters trying to get inside the emergency room? Yes. Unbelievable. Un believable and then we have the radio reporter. Remember The Washington Post article in the Globe today they refer. Police and protestors tactics drew scrutiny after demonstrations formed outside ST Francis Medical Center with the deputies received treatment. That's it. The Washington Post had no interest in describing what had happened. And then you had this nut job radio reporter who, as the police had trying to clear the area.

No outrage, though, over what the demonstrators tried to do to enter the hospital as these police officers Life lives hung in the balance. This one doesn't really outraged you that I don't know what does this is this's as as bad as it gets. I don't care who you are or what you think if you don't condemn this action by those literally, vigilantes, we're going to go visit these people in the hospital. Oh, yeah.

S. you know that very well the way that he describes it is a firm stance against BDS BDS refers to boycott divestment and sanctions it is an activist movement including on campuses that is aimed at pressuring the Israeli government over its policies towards the Palestinians Chris this is our message to universities if you want to accept the tremendous amount of federal dollars that you get every year you must reject anti semitism is he describes the executive order as targeting what he calls the anti semitic campaign against the state of Israel right of Israel and its citizens the way that it's written actually includes calling Israel a racist state as one of the band anti semitic phrases really hitches this as something that is about promoting and protecting the Israeli state from this activist movement and that is really controversial among American Jews because it happens to overlap very neatly with this division kind of among the American Jewish community where there are some who considered BDS to be you know beyond the pale anti Israel consider it to be anti semitic and so been asking for this for a long time why is VDSL single Israel out a loan for condemnation there's only one word for it anti semitism.

"In roadwork areas for KPCC, I'm Emily Elena ductile along with fire damaged roads, we have fire damaged trails in the Santa Monica mountains about five hundred miles worth some are now open to the public again. Like the trails at paramount ranch. KPCC's Kaley wells was among the first visit Joshua brumbach road. The paramount ranch trails the day before they burned. He came back to check out the damage, and he says, even though the fire has packed down the dirt and made the trails better for biking. His heart is heavy as he writes them, it's kind of like writing on the moon a little bit because areas that were four stated they're just gone. Ranger Kim McCreary of the National Park Service says even though some trails are opening the number of hikers is slow to pick up again. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. We want to send people to places that are open, but we still have the same parking. Sophie, send everybody to those areas. There's a little problem McCurry, says hazards have only been cleared unmarked Paz's. So it's especially. Important not to stray trails like the popular solstice canyon.

This your Saint long-term he won't be a lame duck next year because he has job security. They won't be the question. Dave Roberts needs to win to keep his job easier for the long haul. And I think that's good for both sides under Dave Roberts. The dodgers have won three straight National League West titles in two straight nasty league. Pennants eight seven thirty five. From the New York Times. Unlike. The legacy of Herbert Walker Bush. He ruled the Reagan revolution to the White House where he had one of the highest approval rating of any president, and where he successfully oversaw the end of the Cold War.
