Hollywood Could Take $20 Billion Hit From Coronavirus
"The most basic is that movie theaters air just closed a lot of them. Our co host, Steve talked to John Horne, who covers the entertainment industry from member station KPCC in Los Angeles. Movie theaters are about to go out of business. I mean, I think that's the biggest story if you were to look at the biggest chains right now. They could barely scrape enough money together to buy a big tub of popcorn and a box of red vines. I mean, they have gone from a multi billion dollar business to basically no money overnight. Isn't this just a temporary thing, though, because the pandemic well, you could argue that, but I would make an alternative argument, and I would say that the pandemic has accelerated. What was it inevitable? If you look at admissions at movie theaters, it has been flat to declining over the past decade. On top of that, the pandemic exposed. I think of fundamental weakness in the theatrical model, and that is that they haven't changed their business in a century. And the world has changed that if you want to watch movie right now, you can dial it up on Netflix and watch it right now. You don't have to wait to go to the multi plex and wait in line and buy a $10 popcorn. And you're telling me that the Warner Brothers announcement which seemed to me like one more temporary expedient is actually just accelerating where the world is headed. Oh, yeah. What Warner Brothers said is we have decided that the future for this company is going to be digital. They said it's only gonna last a year. But that to me is a bell that they cannot unring at the end of 2021. Is anybody else Besides theaters cut out of the business or harmed when theaters ceased being the primary way that first run movies are distributed? Yes. Ah, lot of actors and directors make deals that involve a lot of contingent compensation. So you remember Tom Cruise used to get $20 million a movie. The studio said, Why we pay you that much money when the movie may not work, So what a lot of actors and directors have been doing is cutting their approach compensation for a share of the revenue and it's almost always tied to box office. So Let's say, Steve, you're a $10 Million movie star. The studio says. How about we pay you a million? But we're gonna give you 10% of the box office proceeds you go. Okay, that actually could bring me more money. If there is no box office, that money is gone, and it's not just the Tom Cruise is of the world. I was talking to somebody who works on scores for movies. And he said, When one of his films goes to a streaming platform, he makes 10 cents on the dollar in terms of his royalty. His work is the same, but because it's debuting on a streaming platform and not at the multiplex. He's taken a 90% pay cut in his royalties. Money aside, they've got to be a lot of directors, actors, people who care about the craft who hate this trend. They hate it. But the argument is a studio is like a restaurant and they've got a freezer full of food That's going to go bad. This happens to be movies so they used to do dining inside. Show your movie the theater. Then they said, Okay, what do we do? Dining outside, maybe a drive in model, and now they're doing a take out delivery model, which is gonna take our movies to streaming platforms because we can't do what we've done before. So it has left the filmmakers quite unhappy, But if your studio what do you suppose to do you have these movies They have got to get seen, and they have no way to do it. John Horne. It's a pleasure talking with you. Pleasure's all mine.

But the FDA now says there is a way to stretch some of the vials. We have. NPR's pharmaceuticals correspondent Sidney Lumpkin has the story vials of visors. Covert 19 vaccine are supposed to contain five doses, but some of them contained six or even seven. Normally, vials are overfilled a little to protect against things like spills, and the remainder gets thrown out. But since covert 19 is a public health emergency things are different. The FDA is working with visor to come up with a plan for how to proceed. For now, the agency says. It's okay to use every full dose that's obtainable from the vials. And that could stretch our supply beyond the initial 100 million doses purchased by the federal government. However, partial doses should not be combined because the vials don't contain any preservatives. CITY LUMPKIN

ICUs are filling up fast, which is putting more pressure on critical care teams, especially nurses as Jackie 40 of member station, KPCC reports. Summer quitting because of the stress for 10 months, June, Jaha has treated the sickest covert 19 patients in the ICU. He works at L. A county USC medical center, one of the county's largest public hospitals. Right now, the I feel crazy. He thought he'd seen the worst of the pandemic back in July, when cases spiked if it's so much worse than before. And it's taking a toll on the staff, John says. Every time he goes to work for another 12 hour shift, two or three other ICU nurses have taken time off. All the nurses is already started burning on You can't feel something in north of this depression. Burnout isn't the only reason for the staffing crisis during the first week of December, more than 1700 Healthcare workers across L. A county tested positive for the coronavirus. That was double the number from the week before. Like many healthcare workers who treat covert patients, Jonah has never been tested for the virus by his employer. He has to go to a free testing site on his days off, kinda using you. That's why we have so many nerves left. All right here. John has been an ICU nurse for more than 10 years, and he's proud of his work. But for the first time ever, he's thinking of quitting. Others already have. Like Chanel Rose crams. There eventually came a point where I told myself I have to find a different job because this stress from this is really making me physically sick. She started working as an overnight ICU nurse in February, right before the pandemic hit running between rooms, monitoring complicated medications and breathing equipment left her dripping in sweat. And afraid that she would contract the virus. Before each shift. She would sit outside the hospital in her parked car filled with dread. I would pray till I cried begging God, please not let me lose a patient tonight. I can't take it. I just need my patients to stay alive tonight. Calling patients families was also difficult, especially when she had to explain that there was nothing else the medical team could do to keep their loved one alive. You've already done the convalescent plasma and they've been getting decade, Ron and they've been getting rendez of here. They've been getting all the stuff and it just felt like ticking time bombs, and I didn't want to have to just sit and wait for all these people to pass away. After more than eight months in the ICU, she quit her job in October. Now. Rosecrans works as a surgical nurse for a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. But she still gets contacted by staffing agencies asking her to fill in at local ICUs. I don't see what the point of going right back would be because I feel like they're going to be operating in that crisis mode. Other nurses are quitting those high pressure jobs.

New L.A. County ‘Safer at Home’ restrictions revealed amid COVID-19 surge
"Million people infected in two weeks. That's how fast the Corona virus is blitzing through the U. S population and in many states around the country, strict new measures are in place to try to stop the spread. We're going to check in on a few hot spots right now. A three week ban on outdoor dining goes into effect tonight here in Los Angeles County and the Board of Supervisors is considering another stay at home order. Joining us now is Jackie 40, a health reporter with KPCC and L. A. And and Jackie. What is the situation with the rise in cases here in L. A. I mean, we're experiencing a huge surge in new coronavirus cases across California. But like you said, particularly in L. A over the last week, we've broken daily case records. Multiple times. Health officials reported nearly 6200 cases just yesterday. Hospital beds are filling up and now unfortunately, we're seeing deaths really begin to rise over the last week on average, 28 people are reported dead every day. How Jackie, I wanna also ask you about some of the bands that are now going into effect. This outdoor dining band was nearly overturned yesterday in a really close vote 3 to 2 tell us a little bit about that. California has a color coded a reopening system based on Corbett infection rates, and since that was implemented by Governor Gavin Newsom of the summer L A has always been in the strictest here because we have been a hot spot. So indoor dining has not been allowed for months, but outdoor dining has, And now that we're seeing this new surgeon cases L. A county health officials decided to close outdoor dining for at least three weeks and restrict restaurants to take out and delivery. Only yesterday, the L. A Board of Supervisors had a very long spirited discussion about it after hearing from restaurant owners who say that it would just devastate the industry, and now there's no federal funding to help them out. The board eventually voted in favor after health officials said that it's been clear that people are just going to restaurants with folks outside of their immediate families, You know, taking their masks off to eat and therefore increasing the risk of new infections so that then will go into effect tonight at 10. And and there's also talk about of the stay at home order being floated with the 30 seconds. I have. What would that look like? Yeah, it's really designed to keep people in their homes as much as possible. So no gathering with anyone outside of your household. The order would really reduce capacity at places like stores K through 12 schools would continue a 20% capacity. They're really trying to find a sweet spot where they can keep people from gathering and spreading the virus, but still allows him retail stores to remain open. We don't know when it will go into a factor really, exactly where the details will be. Yeah. So much to watch for their That's Jackie 48 Health reporter with KPCC in Los Angeles, California Thank you so much. Thanks.
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?

And if if that's if if you look at the age, doc Schaefer was about my age Ekanayake short about my age this age, you cannot take losses. Like, you could do it at the age. So I cannot speak for them. But they can say this. Not everybody can take the losses. You know, the member during the depression how many people killed themself, right? So. Is this partly though about the inevitable changes in an industry people's habits, change people's lifestyles change. We've just parked his car in front of the New York Times. Yeah. You know that our industry changed used to be people getting newspapers every day. They don't get newspapers every day. They don't they don't want them in their life. But they can go on the air they can change. And and and is your industry is becoming obsolete. And inevitably there's going to be something that comes challenges it. And it's a hard must be a hard thing to hear. It's a hard thing to say because you're a wonderful person, and you've built a wonderful business.

More than a million dollars in value. You've lost more than. But I'm not gonna kill myself. I wanna fight. I just want to say one thing that I think I'm wrestling with the producer wrestling with to here. Okay. I don't want to speak for anybody else.

"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. However, and many of the ones west of it are still closed. I'm Kelly wells. Well, Dave Robertson. The dodgers are in it together for the long haul.

He says despite some fan criticism after the World Series losses, daybreak sports future with the franchise was never really in doubt. He was coming back to manage next season, regardless. 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. So why was he denied a second term? It's Monday, December third..
