"Has the most monkeypox cases in the world and you might be wondering how does one get monkeypox? Well, monkeypox is transmitted largely through close sexual contact, the trading of bodily fluids, if you will, in primarily the gay community in America. Now, you can say this, but you might get banned from social media, but just listen to the CDC director Rochelle Walensky, saying this and listen carefully to what she says, play cut 40. We do have seen now two cases that have occurred in children. Both of those children are traced back to individuals who come from the men who have sex with men community, the game and community. And so when we have seen those cases in children, they have generally been what I call adjacent to the community most at risk. Wait, how did children get at exactly? You mean that they were raped? That deserves an explanation. How on earth did kids get monkeypox? You don't get it by swimming in the pool, who raped the children exactly. Rochelle Walensky?

listening to Bloomberg businessweek with Carol massar and Bloomberg quick takes Tim stenog from Bloomberg radio They call me mad oh yeah takes right all right well that's mellow yellow of course by the singer songwriter Donovan popular in the 1960s but we all know it It is a good introduction to our weekly deep dive into our Bloomberg pursuits section My co host Carol master traveling for work this week but we do want to talk about leisure right now For that I'm joined by Bloomberg pursuits deputy editor Jim daddy Also travel editor Nikki eckstein they're here with us to help build a perfect itinerary for our summer vacations Yes there's still time to do that Jim I want to start with you though Why are we listening to mellow yellow Mellow yellow has a prominent role in one of the stories this week Summer travel season is upon us And we're all feeling a little bit sensory deprived And so Nikki came up with this really great idea about how to reinvigorate your senses So we picked 5 the 5 senses And found itineraries for each one where you can kind of engage those senses and get back in touch with them Nikki what were you thinking whenever you were had this Wide world of travel and how to engage your senses You know we always think about travel in terms of a destination for our right Where am I going This year it feels a little bit like people don't care where they're going They want to go anywhere and they want to feel something And I think in comparison to how we were traveling in 2021 we were still a little bit conscious of COVID We were still social distancing And I just remember going to the Caribbean and seeing the bluest water I thought I had ever seen in my whole entire life because my eyes had not laid You know I hadn't laid eyes on that color and so long but touch the sound of people close by all of those other senses were still far in the background And this year I think we can really flood our senses in a less restrained way and that's what we were going for here Yeah I remember going to the Caribbean as well And the sun on my skin just felt a little bit warmer You didn't get to touch any wells though Did not touch any well anyway I want to talk a little bit about that Nikki because I think this was such a great way to approach the travel section in the pursuit section for the magazine And I want to start with that sense of touch You found an area of the world where people can travel to not so easily It turns out And make contact with whales Yeah so you think about Baja California in Mexico and you think about Cabo This is a part of that state Granted cabos in Baja California This is regular Baja California just north of that And there's a bay with four sheltered lagoons in Baja California It's called laguna San Ignacio And there is an operator called Baja expeditions that runs the only luxury leaning trips to this area getting there is a little bit of a schlep But once you arrive you stay in sort of like a plush safari camp kind of a situation And you go out on these boat rides where you can visit gray whales These are huge animals They grow up to almost a 100,000 pounds each They're enormous and you're on tiny little boats and what do you do you splash in the water to draw their attention and they come right up to you And they introduce you to their babies who are born in these lagoons learning how to swim and you can interact with them and you can physically touch them They give you permission to touch them which is pretty unprecedented in terms of wildlife encounters and ethical wildlife encounters Nikki the writer Sarah Clemens has a really funny image Describing what it's like to touch one of these whales These are huge animals as you mentioned but how did you describe it It's a little bit like touching a hard boiled egg Tim you ever petted a hard boiled egg.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky Admits the COVID Science Is 'Gray'
"So here we have a tape I want to play. CDC director cut 14 rachelle walensky says like the science is gray, it's not black and white. Now people like Rochelle Walensky need to start to be held accountable. There needs to be responsibility taken for the mass societal pain and suffering that was inflicted. And I understand that some people say Charlie, it's time to move on from COVID. It's over. And this is not about COVID. It's not. It's about whether or not a lesson will be learned collectively by a society, whether or not the truth will be properly conveyed to a population to associate the disruption, the inflation that we're seeing is largely because of our response as well by the lack of wisdom from our leaders and the malevolence from our leaders. If we do not gain a proper understanding of the implications of our action, the not only will we repeat it, but we won't learn lessons from any sort of. Issue or campaign that we get behind. Play cut 14. And then maybe the other thing I'll say is this area gray. And I have frequently said, we're going to lead with a song, science is going to be the foundation of everything we do. That is entirely true. I think public heard that as science is full science is black and white, science is immediate and we get the answer and then we make the decision based on the answer and the truth is science is great. And science is not always immediate. And it sometimes it takes months and years to actually find out the answer.
Documents Reveal Feds Paid Media Outlets to Praise COVID Vaccines
"Cut 23 doctor Robert Malone, we have clear evidence the government has invested over $1 billion in marketing vaccines. And explicitly the CDC is acting as a political arm. It has weaponized public health for political purposes on the part of the federal government. Furthermore, governed in scientists as you know, we now have because of freedom of information act, the reveal that the government, this administration, this executive branch has invested over $1 billion in promoting these narratives in social media and in the legacy media. $1 billion, so first of all, Ron DeSantis held some sort of summit looked like something out of Wayne enterprises like bat cave where everyone has their own Zoom call and they did this really bizarre thing where the whole wall was like everyone's face on the Zoom call. Just really hope that no one had a, it's the guy from CNN that had that moment. You know what I'm talking about? Just hope that didn't happen. Toobin, Jeffrey toobin. Rochelle Walensky comes out, she says, look, science, it's gray. It's not black and white. So now she tell us that science has nuance, play cut 14. And then maybe the other thing I'll say is this area gray. And I have frequently said, we're going to lead with the song and science is going to be the foundation of everything we do. That is entirely true. I think public heard that as science is full science is black and white, the science is immediate and get the answer. And then we make the decision based on the answer. And the truth is science is great. And science is not always immediate. And it sometimes it takes months and years to actually find out the answer. Oh, really? Science is gray, like maybe the vaccine doesn't work for everybody or the vaccine might have adverse events, or maybe the vaccine actually might have resulted in some people dying or azithromycin or hydroxychloroquine or prozac very well could have helped people with COVID. Now, what doctor Robert Malone was talking about is a $1 billion going into legacy media companies to prop up the vaccine. There is going to be a steady flow of information the media does not want you to talk about our cover. Around all of this, coming out in the coming days, weeks, months and years.

and high yield bonds before we get into the details of some of the currency issues I have to ask how big is the opportunity in EM bonds How large is this market I don't know compared to let's say U.S. corporates or treasuries So round numbers for dollar denominated bonds sovereign and quality sovereign external debt in the ambi global index around 1.4 trillion For the corporate EM index and it's also around 1.4 trillion and for local currency EM debt it's around two and a half trillion Now that's just the index eligible stuff I think you could safely multiply that by another 50% to capture all possible investable debt Has this been expanding Because what we seem to have seen over the past I don't know a decade or two is really a bit of a shortage of high quality sovereign debt What's the growth rate of emerging market debt look like So from memory I would say each of these were probably about half again this size or half the size maybe 15 years ago So it's growing For sure there's more interest in it I was looking this morning at the Bloomberg global aggregate into action they produced the sub index of negative yielding debt That's about 14 trillion So folks are asked to find things with positive yields And I think that's where EM debt has been coming in Quite an interesting So we started talking a little bit about the spread and EM debt and some of the currency risk How do you measure different currencies I know about the textbook models but what's it like in the real world It's funny that you say the textbook model of I gave a talk We have a fall client conference and in 2016 I wanted to give a talk about arbitrage And I started off with a quote because at this point it was just around the time that Japan was entering yield curve control And the quote that struck me was from 2013 and we're going to the IMF beating So ostensibly just to think about EM but if you think about the time period the European sovereign debt crisis is sort of coming to a day new law and Cypriots had just defaulted on bank debt So there's a lot of interesting stuff going on And the most crowded room at that IMF in 2013 was the bank of Japan So the assistant governor this

And yesterday, Brett baro was the guest host and he did a great job and he normally has the weeknight slot on Fox News, but he really held Rochelle Walensky his feet to the fire. Asking about a question that we've asked over and over, you've asked over and over, how many people in that 800,000 number have died not from COVID, but with COVID? Because now we're finding out just now two years in, oh, they've been counting deaths with COVID, so they didn't necessarily listen to her answer, this is hysterical, clearly she doesn't want to answer a very legitimate, simple question. Do you know how many of the 836,000 deaths in the U.S. linked to COVID are from COVID or how many are with COVID, but they had other comorbidities? Do you have that breakdown?

We're vaccinated so those of us who are vaccinated. What do we need to be thinking about. What this new variant well. It's the first thing to now. Is we worrying about variants because they they demonstrate that the viruses mutated and when we the viruses mutated it usually does so with some advantage to the virus so this time the delta variant that everybody's been hearing about that advantages that it's more transmissible and so we know now that about fifty seven percent of all virus here in the united states is the delta variant. But the good news. Is that our vaccines work against it. And so the really important thing to know is that if you are not vaccinated on your at higher risk of getting the delta variant and you need to put on your mask and you need to do all this prevention measures we've been talking about for over a year now but if you are vaccinated. You're well protected even against the delta variant. Now what we worry about with hearings in general is that they will continue to emerge as more and more virus circulates and that one day they might emerge to evade our vaccines. And that's of course the biggest concern which is why we want to suppress virus all over the place so the evolution of a variant is something. That's going to be in our near future for sure that i worry indeed here in the united states and around the world and what about this fall. Are you concerned about what's going to happen this fall. We've all i mean..
Health Officials Warn About Delta Variant as COVID-19 Cases Surge
"States is facing a jarring turn in its year and a half battle against the coronavirus. New cases and hospitalizations are rising again. More contagious. Delta variant is a big factor. So are the outbreaks in places where few people are vaccinated against Covid 19. NPR's Ping Wang has details. It's a hard learned truth from the pandemic when cases and hospitalizations increase deaths will follow. Rochelle Walensky, head of the CDC says This is especially true in parts of the country with low vaccination rates. Preliminary data over the past few months show a stark divide between those who have gotten shots and those who have not 99.5% of deaths from Covid 19 in the United States were in unvaccinated people. Those deaths were preventable with a simple, safe shocked. Wolinski says that places with low vaccination rates are facing increased risks from the Delta variant, which now accounts for 80% of new infections in some areas. She says, lacks mitigation policies are not helping.

Deaths are still very high, and for this very moment, we have cases coming down there down a third in the last two weeks, death rates that have never been as low it's since April of 2020. Again. That's Rochelle Walensky, head of the CDC. And she says everything's great now. It's great. By the way, you can talk about this, and I don't want you guys to even think about Missiles being tossed from Haram Hamas over Israel and Israel's Don't even think about the border is fine.

Still will probably remembers indoors just because it's just close quarters and not really up out in the open. Well, that's certainly that is her ability. Sure, her choice. She wants her mask indoors. That's fine.

"Rochelle Walensky says mitigation measures like universal masking work, but some are harder to Diogo diagnostic testing in contact, tracing within 48 hours of a contact to ensure that people can be properly isolated in quarantine. So really, it's a layered mitigation approach.

"Especially now, when we know the teachers have been vaccinated or being vaccinated. But also what about the long term effects emotionally on some of these people? And no one wants to listen. I'm gonna want you here. One last thing from Rochelle Walensky, the CDC director she talks about where the community spread isn't isn't there is accumulating data that suggests that there is not a lot of transmission and that is happening in schools when the proper mitigation measures are taken when there is masking when there is distancing, de dense ification of the classroom, ventilation contact, tracing hand washing all of those things when they're done well. The data suggests the science suggests that there is not a lot of transmission happening in schools, and in fact, the case rates and schools are generally lower than they are in the population surrounding it. So if that's the case, why are the kids not back in school? So you're going to be hearing this screaming and yelling? It's already happening. The superintendent has said that we need Ah lot more funding for the emotional, you know, for counseling for these kids when they do come back, and we need more money for mitigation strategies. When there is money already there their existing school districts of Mesa, the biggest school district in the state, can do it. Why can't Tempe Why can't Phoenix We're seeing it in Queen Creek. We're seeing it in the in the Northwest Valley. We're seeing in Scottsdale in places where school district's are opening up, and they're navigating covert 19. When covert 19 is introduced into the school, the school has a plan in place for quarantine. The Pavel plan in place for to make sure through contact tracing that they'd stop the spread, and they've done an excellent job of doing that and excellent job. So now you have them talking about a school district down in Tucson that lost. I think they said six their employees to covert 19, and they're dealing with the loss of six employees. The funny thing is, and I don't There's nothing funny about the death, but the way they're making this sound is this is why we can't open the schools. They were closed. None of those people were in the schools when this happened. Covert 19 is not being spread in the schools. It's being spread by people outside, not adhering to the protocol. So the idea that these parents are saying you are destroying our Children is not far off. These kids are suffering, and they need to have the option of being in the classroom. No one is saying that the classroom option should be the only option, but it should be an option in every district. How do you argue with that? They find a way to either blow it off or not answer directly. It's just not right. Coming up. We got to talk about the Super Bowl because we've got to make predictions. We've also got to make sure we talk about what's gonna happen. If you have a party. What could be the worst That could happen? We'll get to it in just a moment. You know Sanderson Ford has been around for over 65 years.

"Little bit later, but We start off with schools once again in Tempe. There is an open our schools billboard. They've gone up off I 10 Tempe Union High School district. They want to move back in person learning. So parents said that it's near Elliot Road, saying that the district's heir failing our kids, and that's what it says Tempe Union High School district is failing Our kids open our schools. Parents are beginning to start voicing their opinions because they're beginning to see that this has become overtly political. We had Rochelle Walensky, who is the CDC director has sent a couple of different things over the last week or so again. You are talking about a very odd time in American politics. When you have largely a Democrat, you know, administration. Why shouldn't say largely, it's completely a Democrat administration. And the Democrats hold the House and Senate and we know that labor unions are big, big big supporters of Democrats and vice versa. That's where them not not saying membership is much but definitely management in the unions. Donates the line share their money to Democrat candidates and causes so there usually is a pretty strong alliance there. But if you look at the alliance is beginning to break down, the mayor of Chicago who was no conservative, is furious with the union in the city of Chicago and saying it's time for kids to get back into the classroom. You've got the head of the CDC Rock, Rochelle, Wolinsky or Wilensky, saying this about schools opening Data that suggests that there is not a lot of transmission and that is happening in schools when the proper mitigation measures are taken when there is masking when there is distancing, de dense ification of the classroom, ventilation contact, tracing hand washing all of those things when they're done well, the data suggests the science suggests that there is not a lot of transmission happening in schools, and in fact, the case rates and schools are generally lower than They are in the population surrounding it. So what's happening is two fronts where it's beginning to be infuriating to some parents. There have been parents have been paying attention to this for a long time. And I'm not. I don't blame the parents that don't you are trying to keep your head above water. You have to figure out how to educate your kids. Covert 19 in the spread of covert 19 has been very severe in Arizona, a number of times more than once. So parents were just going on with their lives, and now they're starting to see the adverse effect on their kids. The better part of two school years have been affected by this, and now we're seeing more and more kids are beginning to fail. One of the stories less kids now going to school online or in person than before. Parents are starting a home school. Other parents were taking their Children to charter schools and in the other district and the ones that it really hurts are the are the families that everybody claims to be the champion for which are working class or low income families. They don't have those kind of options. Generally speaking, those parents are not the ones that have the ability to drive their kid to another district and get them in a school or to put them in a private school. Or they have one parent. Stay home in home school, their kids, they're stuck without us. Shins, which means their kids are in the worst situation of online learning with no way out. And people are starting to see it. They're seeing it for the politics that it is when you've got the very Democrat mayor of Chicago against the Teachers union when you have Rochelle Walensky, who is the CDC director in a Democrat administration, reiterating two or three times this week that the safest and best place for kids is in school that covert 19 is not spreading in schools is longest protocol is being met. And everywhere we look It is being met at a much higher rate. So we are keeping businesses open, which I believe we should. That was one of the excuses that we heard from the people here in Arizona that as long as the community spread remains high, we're not open in the schools. But every study shows that when the schools are obeying protocol, the spread is so much lower in schools. It's actually safer to be there. And for kids to be home. It's a safer place. So this has become well, it always has been, but it's become apparent to people that this is an overtly political maneuver, and they're beginning to lose ground very quickly. So now they're talking about funding. Well, we have a lot of money in the rainy day fund here, Arizona and once before, when the teachers wanted to raise the governor went to the Republicans and Legislature because they have the majority and they went to work with other, um There's educating experts, education experts and they put together a plan and they gave them the 20% raise. They were asking for and it took the wind out of the sails of the unions, then So now, if their complaint is mitigation strategies and having money to mitigate well, there's money in the rainy day fund. And what's funny is point to the other school districts, one of the largest. I think it is the largest school district in Arizona is Mesa public schools. And Mason's back in class. You look at so many of the East Valley District's that are doing this. And they're spending money. And they're making sure that the mitigation strategies and protocols are in place. So if these other districts canoeists if may sicken, do it. Why can't Phoenix Union It's a great question. Why isn't Tempe Union? And the fact is it's because of the leadership of the district is working hand in hand with the air. They ate you. They're one and the same. Because the teachers and those unions will do a sick out and shut everything down. And unfortunately for them, the tables are beginning to turn so their plans are now changing and you will see a change in direction from them. They will be the heroes once again that they will be now that the vaccine is out there. They're going to come up with a plan that's going to cost a ton of money. To say we will come back in school when you do these three or four things, and they're going to be impossible to do and it's gonna look like we wanted to go back to school, but we just wanted to make sure it was safe. The data already says it's safe. Gonna talk more about this. I mean, I'm not going to give up on this topic. It's is important. Anything else that's going on in our schools. But first we've got to get it over. Taylor Kepner up. She's got breaking news. Katya are.
