Upticks in many, many countries on this is probably the sound of a relax ation during the summer. They seem to be this widespread belief that somehow it had gone for the summer and it was their people talked about second wave. But they didn't really understand that there was continuing transmission in every country at a lower level than the peaks in March, But because that transmission had not really being suppressed, it built up and built up. And if you look at the Evidence kept genealogical Kurt for many countries. The rise began in July and has continued, and that's what we're looking at now. So what's your advice to national governments? Is it the reimposition ofthe national lockdowns? Or what's happening in a lot of countries, thes local lockdowns thes local restrictions. Our advice is really target the virus. So use your tracking. Your tracing your testing systems Understand way of transmission is, um and really find every contact and find ways to isolate the people who've been in contact to break that transmission. Now, sometimes that may be a local locked up, but we really want to see every country finding a way to live as normally as possible, but safely as possible. That's why we keep on using this term. New normal, Not easy. And the problem is, people confuse that with the old normal, which was when there was no Corona virus were now living in the time of Corona virus, and we have to live safely. So we're not saying good. Just keep one going back to lockdowns. Find a way to be safe, really break those transmission change. You saw there in Spain the problem that they have their regional autonomy, local governments being reluctant to introduce measures that national governments feel should be introduced in the case off Madrid. Your advice. Well, I wouldn't if I wouldn't get in the middle ofthe sort of discussions between local and national, but certainly we say, and we know that you need to tailor it to what's working in the community. You need to partner with the community. You need to help the community and to understand what's going on and not to see this as an imposition off something. But something they do to stop the transmission of this forest and to understand there are reasons for doing it because it is a threat, not just the The lives of every person but to the ongoing health of every coast, and we don't even know whether the people who've had a mild infection may become have ongoing problems. Later later in with what Call Long Cove ID, So it's it's in the interest of every person to stop the transmission. But you can understand how the citizens of Europe is becoming increasingly confused with a wide variety of measures because the root of six here in the UK on the other hand, 30 people could meet up to shoot. Grounds. It just sort of seems all over the place and people are getting very confused and they're getting very frustrated. And this is a very important thing you raise. With any outbreak. It's got two individuals have to feel that it is that they are a part of it, and they've got to understand what they can do to stop it. So indeed, ah, the first step is ensuring they have the information they can to protect themselves. And even when I say simple things like wash your hands Cover your mouth and nose, physically distance. It's not that easy it that people has to be given the means of doing that, Doctor.

"Now, the nation's top health officials are urging Americans to remain disciplined. To avoid behaviors that lead cases despite following Memorial Day and the fourth of July on a trip across the Midwest, Dr. Deborah Birks of the White House Corona Virus Task Force gave this stern warning. When I say socially distance, it means at all times, including with family members were seeing that crowded neighborhood events, including backyard barbecues. Are currently one of the primary spreaders of virus. Versus tour comes as several states report covert spikes, including Iowa White House recently flagged Iowa as having the highest rate per capita of new covert cases. Strassmann CBS News Atlanta at the World Health Organization. Margaret Harris isn't expecting vaccine soon in terms of realistic timelines were really not expecting to see widespread vaccination until the middle of next year. Turning now to an in depth look at the presidential election as both President Trump the Democratic nominee, Joe Biden hit the campaign trail in swing states, including Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. We begin with CBS Steve Important Way at the White House, telling us Mr Trump is denying a report that he called US troops killed in War losers. This was a blockbuster headline in the Atlantic on their website Thursday night. The president was coming back from a rally in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. He was asked about it and came to the cameras in the dark on the tarmac at Andrews joint Base Andrews and essentially said that the story was fake. Possibly just made up or otherwise, as he put it, A couple of people in the administration that he got rid of couldn't have got rid of them fast enough made it up. This is about a 2018 Veterans Day visit to France to mark the 1/100 anniversary of the armistice, the end of World War ll And the president was scheduled to visit an American cemetery outside Paris, But the visit was scrapped at the last minute due to what the White House at the time called scheduling and logistical difficulties due to the weather. But Jeffrey Goldberg, in his piece in the Atlantic, says that Mr Trump didn't want to get his hair messed up in the rain, and Goldberg reports that four people told him that the president had conveyed to senior staff at the cemetery was quote filled with losers. The story also suggests that the president had worked some words to that effect about the late Senator John McCain. And essentially said that any kind of military cemetery would be filled with people who just I guess we're losers because they lost the fight. They lost their lives. The president insists that this is not his belief that he that no one has done in his words more for the military than him. It points to a modest and rather routine increases in military service members pay And the fact that he's been working to bring troops home, as he puts it on and that therefore, he couldn't possibly have ever said the things that he is alleged to have said in this piece, but The record reflects that Donald Trump has repeatedly referred to John McCain as someone who wasn't a war hero, someone who was a loser. And so that's why frankly, that presidents denials have tested his credibility..

WHO spokesperson sheds light on 'second peak' of coronavirus

"We approach one hundred thousand deaths from the coronavirus here in the US the world's top health officials are warning that coronavirus infections could go back up in the middle of this current outbreak they're worried about countries including the United States lifting restrictions too quickly this is separate from the so called second wave expected to happen in the fall here's Dr Michael Ryan the director of the world health organization's emergencies program speaking yesterday we cannot make assumptions that just because the disease is on the way down now that it's on them it's going to keep going down and then we're going to get a number of months to get ready for a second way we may get a second peak in this way I'm joined now by Dr Margaret Harris a member of the WHO's coronavirus response team and a W. H. O. spokesperson thank you so much for being with us doctor hers thank you very much for having me Rachel can you just explain more what the concern is about a potential second peak in in infections during this current moment this current outbreak so we sing with different countries quite different patents and what needs to be understood is this coronavirus is not the flute so a lot of people have put what a cold the flu lens on their expectations they keep on thinking it's seasonal but if you look around the globe we've got countries in the middle of the summer and autumn having large large outbreaks so we're not seeing a seasonal Patton what we are seeing is indeed when people ease too quickly that they do then C. and a rise in infections so we certainly don't say you have to be a lockdown but we're saying he's carefully so what are you advising the U. S. and other countries to do to prevent a second peak so first we'll know your transmission and this is because the US is a huge country you've got many many different states communities cities experiencing very different transmissions so they all have their own outbreaks at different stages so they're full of course they need to pace it according to what's really going on so how do you know that you have to be testing you have to be tracking and you have to have a very clear on his own what's happening with the transmission in your community so as you can pick your moment has the W. H. O. Boenning conversation with the trump administration about the urgent need for more testing wearing conversation with administrations with health authorities with health experts around the world all the time these discussions go on continuously but I don't have to tell you about the tension between the United States the trump administration and the WHL president trump has threatened to pull U. S. funding for the WHL or just leave altogether I mean given those tensions are you concerned that the US is not heeding the advice of the guidance from the WHL the US is a fantastic partner and the US has got extraordinary depths of great scientific expertise that they sort of tensions obviously are concerned and we do not want to have the U. S. leave we know the world benefits enormously from the public health leadership and the role the US is always played and we hope that will continue I want to ask you about clinical trials for the drug hydroxy Clark one of this is a drug that president trump has touted publicly the W. H. O. announced this week that it's temporarily stopping clinical trials of that drug why so there was a large observational study that was published in the lancet last week when they looked at people who were taking a number of medications and they found that there was an increased incidence in negative outcomes including death but also how to reach me is so it's essentially nobody will be randomized while that safety data is being reviewed president trump says he's been taking Hydroxycut workman for some weeks as a preventative measure against covered nineteen is the W. H. O. advising physicians not to prescribe Hydroxycut Laura Quinn either preventively or to cover nineteen patient so we advise physicians to prescribe hydro Sickler queen full the things that it's used for normally in the normal population such as autoimmune disorders we are not looking at it as a preventive or prophylactic measure and finally I mean we saw new Zealand's prime minister Jacinda Ardern celebrate the fact that that country currently has no one in the hospital being treated for covert nineteen they have turned the corner on this and then you look at the United States which is perhaps going to suffer a second peak in the current outbreak what is the state of affairs right now when you when you take a a broad look at the the global impact of this pandemic where are we now we are really seeing very very large outbreaks in many parts of the world so in fact last week every day we recorded the largest number of new cases that we had seen so one of the issues is when people see their particular outbreak coming down they think oh well that's done done and dusted but that is not the case certainly countries like New Zealand has shown what can be done with very clear communication very clean structure very clear decisions on what to do when and how and there's very very strong commitment by everyone in the community Dr Margaret Harris is a member of the WHO's coronavirus response team thank you for your time we appreciate it thank you
