"The cdc director according to axios dot com has already suggested now. It's not official yet. But they're reporting that the cdc director rachelle wolinsky said on friday. The us quote may need to update unquote. Its definition for what it means to have full vaccination against covert now. They haven't yet. She explained that since not everyone is yet eligible for a booster under cdc rules. They can't make that definitional change yet. The once they say everyone over the age of eighteen is now eligible to receive a booster shot. Then they can go ahead and change the definition of what it means to be quote unquote fully vaccinated. So therefore everyone who's currently fully vaccinated will no longer be fully vaccinated the move the goalposts. That's kind of this is right on the tail of the fda finally approving the booster right correct. Yeah it's not. It's not approved for all age groups yet. It's approved for specific like people who are over the age of sixty five and then anyone between eighteen and sixty five who have specific vulnerabilities or something like that. Well as far as i know they still can't require you to get a thing that hasn't gotten approved yet though it's coming they're going to. They're going to approve. Also i i actually appreciate the fact that the fda has been dragging its feet on. This did you just say kennison's is actually serving anyone anywhere. Who's over twenty one not just medical patients anymore or not. Just people in states where it's recreationally legal correct correct because of the captain's picking up his phone right now.

Which would be unusual compared to other states Yeah correct i mean they can do by statute they could do by Just different methods but this is actually a new jersey constitutional interesting. I didn't realize that they'd they'd made that change that way that's That sounds like a first. How did that happen to where you got convicted of a felony and you just went right back at it and continued sense. I mean what was the thought process there so in terms of the program itself. They said that the ca like they didn't go after kenniston karen was legal entity formed. I mean exactly the way it needs to be Legally and lawfully and The program guidelines of where medicine has to come from was they just said to me. You know the medicine has to come from california.

"Twenty twenty one to give local governments time to dramatically increase their aid distribution the extra time proved helpful allowing local governments to distribute over one and a half billion dollars in combined rental assistance in june more than the three previous reporting periods combined but with tens of billions left to spend the white house issued a july twenty ninth statement urging congress to use its legislative power to extend the eviction moratorium in order to give states more time to spread out funds without the added pressure of eviction proceedings kicking off. Again house speaker. Nancy pelosi working with representative waters tried to build a consensus within their party. To pass a vote on extending the moratorium on july thirtieth but the bid failed to garner support among some moderates democrats. Really we only learned about this yesterday. Pelosi told reporters afterward just one day before the moratorium expired not really enough time to socialize it within our caucus pelosi then kicked the crisis back to the white house. Action is needed and it must come from the administration. Pelosi and other democratic leaders wrote in a sunday statement pointing to a recent supreme court opinion. The white house maintained its hands were tied in a five four opinion. On june twenty-ninth the court denied a group of landlords and realtors request for the court to lift the moratorium early conservatives. Chief justice john roberts and justice spread kavanagh sided with the three liberal justices and kavanagh wrote a one paragraph concurring opinion that proved crucial to the white house's position in my view clear and specific congressional authorization via new legislation would be necessary for the cdc to extend the moratorium past july thirty first. Cavanaugh wrote representative pernilla giant paul chair of the congressional progressive caucus says she thinks the white house drew to firm of a conclusion from one line in a concurring opinion on vixen moratorium. That was written a long time ago in a different circumstance giant. Paul says she believes the spread of the delta very required faster action from the executive branch. What we're talking about is a new extremely virulent variant of the virus that has led to this enormous growth cases. She says and we also have statistics now that we didn't have back then about homelessness and how homelessness increases cova spread.

The cdc was going to step in despite reservations about its authority. Not doing anything would be a dangerous threat to public health.

Six one man tried and failed to build. Report with me shouting. Are you my brother and other takes. A different tack shouting. You will die on your knees. Simone biles steps away from competition citing mental health concerns of gymnasts have his or her mind in that right place they can injure themselves break their next. They can even kill themselves and we're going back to one thousand nine hundred sixty nine top for woodstock for the harlem cultural festival. I'm looking at over forty hours of footage of really some amazing performances. And i'm trying to break my brain to think who would deny this all ahead on perspective this week. We heard testimony from the capitol hill. Police officers who held back rioters on january six. And we watched as one of america's top olympians pulled away from what was arguably the biggest competition of her career. We'll get to those stories but we're going to begin with the spread of the delta variant of the corona virus. Almost everyone hospitalized due to covert now is unvaccinated this week. We got new guidance on masks. Cdc director rachelle wolinsky in areas with the financial and high transmission. Cdc recommends bullied vaccinated people. Where math in public indoor setting and when it comes to schools steady recommends that everyone in case twelve google where amac indoor including teachers staff students and visitors regardless of action nations data. New research came out this week. Revealing just how much not being in the classroom has affected the nation students. Abc's alex stone has been taking a look. This new research sherry coming amid the drumbeat. Now from political and health leaders saying kids have to go back full-time two classes his school year but many parents are getting worried. Based on where covert numbers are going that a county or a state might say well. Kids are unvaccinated and they have to go remote again. I know a lot of our friends in the la unified school district. They're worried that. La could go that way no indication that they will. But generally. You're hearing this coming from the cdc in recent days that children can and should be back to full time in person learning in the fall. We'll now this new report by nwea portland based academic research firm saying elementary and middle. School students had lower rates of achievement gains last year. Yes they did learn last year but not at the rate that they would in a normal year i was able to get on zoom with dr karen. Lewis who's the lead researcher. We're just seeing diminished learning rates. Compared to normal year reversed checked in in the fall and kids are returned to the classroom after this shutdown of spring of two thousand twenty. And when we look at what's happening at that point we saw some bright spots. Readings seem to be holding steady but we saw declines in math. This latest around of research checks in after a four year of the of learning during pandemic. And what we're seeing is that reading is no longer a bright spot especially for our youngest learners now. They looked at five point. Five million math and reading scores. They saw declines especially in math and especially in high poverty areas. Most interesting too. Many of the gains in math and reading really took a dip going into the spring and the thinking is the kids and teachers were just burned out by then. They had nothing laugh. Winter hit that's when pandemic fatigue really hit hard and kids certainly were not immune from just being over at being denied their social connections with their peers being denied the traditional classroom setting now breaking down. Some of these numbers third graders in high poverty. Schools showed the biggest declines in eleven percent point decline in reading seventeen percent decline in math. But there's even a more worrisome part. These numbers could be worse if they add test scores from all kids. They only have scores from those who took tests and some test takers disappeared during the pandemic. They don't know where they are. It's really concerning. We need to be reaching out to those reengaging them in schooling concerning or are making sense of our analyses as well i think did the kids not show up to virtual learning or in person when the schools went back. Are they on the street. So they unaccounted playing video games or worse. Nobody knows but there are kids. Who have just kind of disappeared mainly in high poverty areas. It's a mystery where they are. Schools are going to have to deal with that as classes. Go back one more note. Nwea saying it will take unprecedented levels of growth to make up for the past school year as students were learning remotely reporting for perspective. I'm alex stone. Abc news even though unemployment numbers still hung around four hundred thousand this week. Second quarter growth showed. The economy is back to repent pentax excise the recovery. We know though has been uneven for many this weekend. Many will lose moratorium on rent. Assistance and many others are gearing up for life back at the office this fall on the abc news daily.

They found themselves without much support at all. During the pandemic our partners at the data in new side fivethirtyeight interviewed one of the highest paid legal sex workers in the country as well as advocates documenting. How sex work in.

Well she she left and it was. She was in tears. I actually watched it last night and she was still there honored teammates. And then you got the other side of people saying she's un-american letter country down everybody calm down with your heartaches she did leave the c as you mentioned before. They don't have like a coach for the whole team. Right have individual trainers so after her horrific vault experience show. I think in her mind she thought. Oh my god. I just screwed the team's chance of winning a gold medals. That's what it was when it took myself out and took herself out of the lineup. And i think she does have a lot of pressure ever expected her to win the gold across the board. So she's like she saw that happen and thought okay. I'm going to back out. But she laughed and then she came back and she cheered everybody on and she was there. She was hugging the kid. That jordan girl that took place yeah and they ended up winning the silver which is probably good they probably would have gotten the gold. Obviously if she had been there competing and now she said no but but competing at her normal level because she was was choking sorry she was. She's it's bad but she actually did her team a solid dropping. Yeah so now. She's saying she's going to drop out of the individuals to though so she. She made decide by tomorrow to go back but as it stands right now she won't be competing trainer. Said is nothing physical. So it's a slump or what it is. It happened so she took her so out of the lineup so her team still had a chance to win win something. They won silver and they did not. Oh my god not this. She quit other team. She didn't who's the guy always mentioned. That lou gehrig replaced wally pet. Okay maybe jordan. There was there was another girl to who took her place on the balanced and did really well. She was good. And i can't. I don't know their names. And i apologize But these kids are gonna come out to be. You know the shining stars. You mean we saw simone biles in the last olympics. She won gold medals. They're so i mean it's it's it's the new regime's chance that's the unfortunate thing about the olympics you've got usually in most cases one shot and that's it that's right that's exactly it. I don't know. I don't know i don't watch a lot of it but i wanna see that last night to see if i had heard that she had come back to support a teammates and there she was happy as heck yeah. She looks took herself out of the lineup. Big deal i you know what we have to be thankful for our swimmers because of the reason we're winning all the gold medals the kid for i did see that kid from green cove springs. Yeah care members name amazing. He's really good. Is it really. Yeah d- you can tell who a good after looking at michael phelps because we never could understand you know what what d- what the deviation was with michael phelps other than i mean. Obviously he's a great athlete. But it's his body shape. He's got short of shorter legs in a long torso and wingspan like eight feet. His arms is this guy built like the same way like michael. I think so. I don't know if you can watch. Katie la- decky in the fifteen hundred meter. 'cause she smokes everybody she was flying. Okay it broke. It really did break my heart though and explained to me the reasoning behind this so she is absolutely after that performance winded. Gotta do the tv interview. They will everybody in the world wants to talk to her. Has to put the stupid mask. They have on after getting out of a pool. She's struggling debris it's like she's laboring to breathe through this thing and talking at the same time that's heartbreaking. They say they had some women. Some women some swimmer Doing the the you know the play by play and she said you have no idea your lungs feel like they're gonna burst open right about now. And they're like three quarters of the way through the competition. Fifteen hundred meters is a long way. They're in the pool for like fifteen minutes so she's suddenly put a mask owner. Yeah so you're swimming straight for fifty now hard that is i can't swim back and forth twice for fifteen minutes full gusto so i don't know that some of the highlights but Speaking of masks well the push for mask. Mandates is fully underway. Probably at tell you. What little peter doocy tried in the white house pressroom yesterday to try to ask the question. You any pointed to a chart that circle back sake had racer there in the press room and he said rightly pointed to it right. There is as the years your data. It says that it works so why should vaccine vaccinate. People wear masks. Didn't really get an answer. Vaccines works wish. This signs that they do than what people who have vaccine wear matt's the same as people move because the public health leaders in our administration have made the determination based on data that that is a way to make sure they're protected their loved ones are protected. And that's an extra step given the transmission of the virus that people They're advising people sure you don't have enough data to show now. Sorry you don't know what's her name. My favorite person dr rachelle wolinsky how that women's keeping your job is beyond me. But that's besides the point right anyway. She said new data scientific data from other countries shows that even if you're vaccinated you have the very rare rare being the operative word potential of being contagious and carrying it and dispersing it to someone who isn't vaccinated. Okay so i'm thinking okay. So if i wear a mask with differences that make if i'm i vaccinated in you say that in the rare occasion that very rare occasion. I could be contagious. And i stand next to somebody who doesn't have a vaccine. They're going to get in any way. Because i'm standing next tool. Well if you wanna believe the data if there's one thing you learn the data's very unreliable i come on anyway. You know what is reliable. What's that dear. Every single at least once a week you can rely on one of these stupid the day once again. The clearwater area is leading the clubhouse. I know what's clearwater. It's amazing but you know what i can understand. I'm on glenn side on this one just so you know boy glenside. His roommate was wrong. That edward guy needed to get carded off. I think it was glenn that got in trouble though. It was a fight over. Tv shows when you got one tv and one remote. Get a little testy right so true. So what glenn wanted glenn. Hutchinson is his name. he wanted to watch what. What am i favored shows. Just because i like tony shalhoub monk. That's right he won emmy awards guy one for that show like a million anyway.

I mean, I've been working with the back for years when he was the surgeon general during the Obama administration and Rochelle Wolinsky has been a colleague of mine. She's an infectious disease expert. From Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts General Hospital. Now the CDC director job doesn't require Senate confirmation, but surgeon General will and Murthy had a difficult time getting confirmed last time because of his work on gun safety issues, Right. Okay, there's another doctor on this list. Marcella newness, Smith. Of Yale School of Medicine. What is her role going to be? She's going to lead something that Biden is creating called the Cove it 19 Equity Task Force. As we all know. By now, the burden of covert 19 has been disproportionately felt by people of color, and Nunez Smith is the founding director. Of Yale's Equity Research and Innovation Center. She's been working on this issue extensively and building trust in communities that don't necessarily trust the medical community or vaccines.

He grew up in Sacramento with working class immigrant parents. He got into Stanford, according to his official bio after fishing and application out of the trash that his friend and thrown away his personal story is something that you can expect to see Biden and his team highlight, especially since Biden's been under pressure to make good on his promise to have a diverse cabinet, right. Lastly, there is a White House position. Jeff Science will be the coordinator of the pandemic response. He's also gonna be a counselor to the president.

There has been pushed back as you say, from progressives to his appointment.
