The surgeon general is warning again that social media could be hazardous to your health Correspondent Kevin McCormick Surgeon general Vivek Murthy has issued an advisory the first of this administration to warn the public about what he calls the urgent threat of health misinformation. He says it's threatening the U. S response to Covid 19 and prolonging the pandemic, A statement says. As of late May, 67% of unvaccinated Americans had heard at least one vaccine myth. He's urging social media companies to take more responsibility to stop it. Online. Average daily cases are up about 84% nationwide in the past two weeks, in part due to the delta variant. And the large number of unvaccinated people who are susceptible to it. But CDC director Dr Rochelle Walensky is seeing not just a resistance to covid vaccine but a resistance to all vaccines. I found that find this incredibly disturbing. So not only does is it disturbing for Covid but is disturbing for all vaccine preventable illness, which we really can't afford and don't want to see surging just as we're trying to tackle this Plus variant being detected in three hospital patients in Houston. This is Dr Wesley Long. The delta plus variant is is a variant of covid 19 that has all the mutations of the delta variant and then has acquired an additional mutation in the spy protein. Now have 32 states reporting increases of 50% or more in infections. Dr Marc Seidner of Mass General Hospital in Boston. In some case, I think this is a little bit of history repeating itself.

Three weeks of restrictions have had no effect and with no end to confirmed Covid 19 cases, authorities have extended the cities lockdown at least until the end of the month. Scott mainland for CBS News, Brisbane, Australia In addition to Sydney, the entire state of Victoria, which includes Melbourne, will be locked down for five days. That means everybody stays home except for grocery shopping, essential work. Exercise health care. And getting vaccinated. Another consequence of the pandemic has been a big jump in drug overdoses. Latest report says 93,000 people lost their lives because of their drug habit last year. That was a 29% increase over the year before. CBS is Dr David Agus. When you look at the surge, Much of it is driven by the availability of fentanyl, which is a powerful synthetic opioid, which is 50 times more potent than heroin. When you take it, it suppresses breathing when you suppress breathing to a large extent, denies oxygen to the body and can lead to death. Brandon Marshall tracks overdose trends at the Brown University School of Public Health, he says. This is happening everywhere. Increases were observed in all but two states and this is the largest single year increase in overdose mortality since modern record keeping began, And he says, it has everything to do with the pandemic. We can point to both immediate impacts of the pandemic, using alone social isolation, and then also some lasting effects around things like joblessness, housing, instability, food insecurity. And other stressors that significant numbers of Americans were facing, and it's also the nature of the type of drugs that are now in circulation. We are dealing with an incredibly poison and toxic drug supply in this country, particularly around the proliferation of fentanyl in different types of illicit drugs, and that started in the Northeast and the mid Atlantic and now has continued to spread throughout the US, particularly in the Western states.

Tom Butler come on News co news time. 6 11 government regulators are supposed to move quickly to remove dangerous products from the marketplace. But a new consumer reports investigation found that the Consumer Product Safety Commission is Basically broken come most. Holly Menino explains a malfunctioning fire extinguisher, a lawnmower with a potential hazard, a nail gun defect that shoots nails sideways. All of these issues allegedly resulted in horrific injuries Yet you've probably never heard of any of these problems. There's this law known as section 37, that requires companies to notify the CPSC when there are lawsuits connected to their products that alleged serious injuries or death. But our investigation found that the sequence he rarely learns of these lawsuits. People should know about these lawsuits and safety regulators should be able to investigate and take action as needed. The CPSC declined to comment on specific questions from consumer reports. It's important to know that the law as originally proposed before it was enacted in 1990 called for companies to alert the CPSC about a product when a single lawsuit had been filed alleging significant injury or death. But that's not what ultimately passed is now required to be reported after three lawsuits have been settled or found in favor of the plaintiff within a specific two year period. Lawsuits like these often take longer than she Years, so it's rare that the CPSC it finds out about these lawsuits at all. In fact, over the last 25 years, only two companies have been cited for failing to report lawsuits to the CPSC. Well. Jonathan judge, a lawyer who specializes in product safety counseling for manufacturers, says the law is fine as it currently stands. The failures of section 37 have consumer advocates calling for changes. Every lawsuit alleging injured depth should be reported to the CPSC went as filed. The agency should have all the information it needs to keep potentially dangerous products out of people's homes. Holly Menino Co.
