Many states continue to face record highs in coronavirus cases

"It was five months ago on January nineteenth the first case of covert nineteen was detected in the United States today the country has more than two million confirmed infections including record daily increases in some states Dr Richard Besser who used to run the centers for disease control and now leads the Robert wood Johnson foundation is here so where do we stand on this yeah you know I I think that we are in in a situation where many people are tired of hearing about the pandemic you're tired of having their lives disrupted by the pandemic and unfortunately we have something in the political there who are reinforcing that sense that this is over but you're here and it's it's really early days in this in this pandemic and your last week follow that road map that's being laid out by public health in terms of how you gradually get people hello in working and interacting socially it in safe ways if we don't follow that road map we're going to see places that are once again seeing their healthcare systems are well slides disrupted and people losing their lives bicycles been saved had people follow the guidance of public health is it the people in states with the pandemic did not initially hit as hard as it did say in New York or New Jersey not internalize the messaging or was the messaging flawed I I think there's a lot comes down to messaging and and the challenge that you faced during a public health crisis when the primary communicator is not the public health community one of the challenges I see with the the way the response was was orchestrated this pandemic was the entire nation was shut down and at the same time and so places that we're not seeing any disease were were were treated the same as places where the health care system is overwhelmed and that's never the approach public health give me the case these kinds of decisions and communicating them should be up to the centers for disease control and in this pandemic that has not been the case you know when when I when I ran emergency preparedness and response at CDC and and let the agency at the start of the swine flu pandemic the most important tool that that we had was our power to communicate and informs public a public that trusts the messenger is critical to success and when you when you have the political there in the public health layer I had aunts and the message being that public health is is a barrier to the economy coming back then then you're in a really dangerous situation because you then see some people following the advice for political reasons and some people not following your and these are not political choices the idea that people will practice different behaviors based on on politics is a dangerous situation you want the country unified Dr Richard Besser at the Robert wood Johnson foundation such unanimity that he references has not prevailed in states like Arizona and Florida which today reported record high numbers of single day cases parts of Texas have also reported their largest one day increases that includes bear county in the city of San Antonio where Ron Nirenberg is the mayor Mister mayor thanks for joining us let me clarify because we've had in three successive days three of our largest increases each day so the cases are increasing which we knew would happen once we are common and businesses and services started opening up further governors and we wanted to make sure we didn't see a corresponding increase in hospitals the severity in cages that's the alarming trend in addition to how fast the cases of accelerated people of let their guard down and I think that what I've said before about the pace at which the economy is opening Texas doesn't allow us the benefit of data to be affected incisions are being met are you worried then that San Antonio and similarly situated cities in Texas are behind the curve you know what I I remain focused on is ensuring that we have the route the the proper measures in place of time we're making the decisions open up out when the state took control of the opening plan we essential you essentially yielded our ability to stay in front of the Kerr because again they're opening faster than the data shows the actor efficacy of each decision so in that sense we are behind the curve in terms of the decision making process but what I will say is that the local communities the urban communities of practice I've been a very very aggressive and proactive the difficulty in our situation knows the state prevents us from mandating some of the best practices that includes wearing masks the governor prohibited cities from mandating masks but you've made a different decision how to arrive at it you know we had been courting again our orders protocols for businesses to follow when the Attorney General sent him a letter a couple of weeks ago and basically re interpreted the state's order that said we weren't allowed to do that anymore we had to adjust course but we've been recommending these thanks for a while now but what what we did our best we was rather than mandate our maps for individuals we use the the path that we had through the business protocols to mandate businesses import mask wearing as part of their safety

Houston's morning news it is the first of June the official start of the Atlantic hurricane season but already were working on a potential third named storm so we're off to an early start course sometimes we get off to an early start then there's a low for a while let's hope so but we're keeping an eye on what could become crystal ball that I'm guessing so is Francisco Sanchez it airs county's office of emergency management what kind of early reports are you hearing on what could become crystal ball good morning the same thing we see about seven or eight days out before landfall lot of forecasts going in different directions and the potential for us to be impacted certainly to the mix so for us this is a good time just like we see any tropical development that you check our plans make sure our partners are ready and again will be hoping doesn't come this way but the possibility there it's a real possibility so we'll be tracking it closely perforations are going to right now right now everything that we've done for every prior hurricane season as important today as it was that so all of those things but obviously recognizing that we are in the middle of coke and so that add certain layer of complexity so the big thing for us good that we really have to focus on our valuation sheltering transportation recovery those kinds of things in a response that bring a lot of people to gather how will we be working with our partners to make each of those to be capital distancing that we have all the healthcare costs of bike that occasion soap and water for handwashing all of those kind of things it's really a partnership between us and the American red cross for sheltered project all coastal communities in our state partners we have to do an evacuation that would be strictly for Serbs of making sure that we ask people that only are that actuation area to leave and everybody else to stay put to minimize those kinds of things okay those are the kinds of things we're working through going to be doing that for a few weeks now but now what year is a moving target you never know is it going to be a flooding thing is going to be an evacuation thing is going to be a win thing is going to be too many people clogging the roads with all the road construction is going on hi how are you coordinating with text dot should a mass evacuation be necessary as it was in Rita the good news is we implement lessons learned from the minute we learn those and that has been read that for some time now we've seen issues like that over the past years tex dot and I imagine they're doing the same thing this year for the past many perky and cycles seven planning to make sure construction along evacuation routes is as minimal as possible during hurricane season it doesn't mean that there's not that repairs going on but what it typically means that there's something happening it's something that can be shut down or modified quickly enough to make sure that we have as much lane capacity as possible working with our gas and fuel partners to make sure there is a surge of fuel along evacuation routes so that people don't run out of gas and so those are the kinds of things that are in place most are a few things to make the most of the resources we have our road which has been in contact French Francisco with the local grocery outlets and some of the other ones you know we've had some supply chain issues they all those run on sanitation things in paper products all the things that we would normally stock up for in in preparation for hurricane do we feel like we're going to have enough of that stuff on hand if people are forced to stock up yeah and and so we have been working very closely with them for the past couple of months because the code but we also work with that each hurricane season how are you want a quiet before storm how are you you know that dating up to a storm and how are you after the store to see what life might be needed in the community but here's also what we know what the the supply chain is resilient it's been going well but to make sure that stays that way that people have access to the fights they need and want to reiterate something upset with over the past week or so please get your supplies early this hurricane season because threats that demand on on groceries and the and that those kind of critical supplies you don't want to wait until there's a storm named in the Gulf before you do that for a couple of reasons one you you want to still maintain social distancing and secondly we noticed people already stocking up because the cause of it and there's plenty of stock but but a rush on it what will make it harder to get it so a stagger that out if you don't wait till last minute for for all of those reasons have you warehouse these type of supplies sterilization and hand sanitizers so that you can get them out to shelters should it become necessary yes we have been working hard to do that ourselves will be seen over the past three or four weeks is need to partake of stabilized work personal protective equipment for sanitation for those kind of things some of those are still scarce but that's why we have been stocking up as much as possible and also encouraging our partners to do the same thing begins so they will still be needed for cold and you bring in a response to hurricane and that's gonna exacerbate that need to working with our partners for example of things that the the folks may not consider stopping up with stocking up on on on N. ninety five masks not just for a little bit response but if we find ourselves or any community finds itself having to recover for a massive storm and you have to repair homes going to do that but you got because you have to do it early making sure that those organizations adult N. ninety five masks to make peace make sure that the people that are helping folks not to get their homes will have access to the P. five and then they will be diminished because of the demand on covert response by thank you for joining Francis so good to hear from you Francisco Sanchez Harris county office of emergency management seven twenty

"Mayor Ron Nirenberg officially announced the extension of San Antonio stay at home order a little bit of buzz about bad the city council voted to extend the stay home work safe order that was provided by the judge and and I yesterday that is extended now to may nineteenth and that means that low good businesses are partially rope in everything from retail stores restaurants malls movie theaters all allowed to reopen but all at twenty five percent capacity and of course your social distancing guidelines stay in place the mayor says it'll be up to residents to make sure the re opened establishments comply with the order civil penalties are not out of the realm of possibility for those establishments that don't comply as not just small business owners whose budgets have been blasted by this coronavirus cities also taking ahead thanks to decrease tax collections that's why many members of Congress want the next round of relief to include funding for local government congressman Joaquin Castro of Texas predicting some pretty big gaps people are going out and spending money in a great way because they don't have it just before the court so the federal government is going to have to really step in here and close these big budget holes and this doesn't bode well he says the most help needs to go to cities that rely on tourism because that sector of the economy will be much slower to return well the number of restaurants will resume dine in service today but again at that twenty five percent capacity Emily knight heads the Texas restaurant association says she'll be holding her breath it's a big day internally for Texas and for our restaurant community but we can tell that the nation's watching and so the way we walk through this again are reopening process I think we're gonna teach the other states a lot recent survey found that about half of all Texas restaurants will open today but the smaller ones they're going to stay close there watching all the big ones operate what a burgers dining rooms aren't even re opening just yet even though the governor gave the go ahead for them to open but the popular San Antonio based burger chain says it's doing just fine with drive through and curbside pickup for the time
