"Don thanks so much for joining us doctor Samuel scarpino There at the Rockefeller center talking to us about the latest developments in regards to the explosion in cases in both vaccinated and unvaccinated people of the omicron variant although what we've been hearing today is that the lion's share of those who end up in the hospital are unvaccinated primarily unvaccinated patients This is Bloomberg Good morning I'm Nathan Hager from the Bloomberg 99 one newsroom in Washington following some of the top stories we're watching today the omicron variant is driving COVID caseloads higher than they were during last winter's pandemic peak in many parts of the U.S. though hospitalizations and deaths aren't rising as quickly Gigi grand vault the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg school of public health says that does not mean we should let our guards down Hospitalization is a bit of a lagging indicator And so I would be cautious about celebrating just yet Gigi grandfather Johns Hopkins says home Macron does appear less severe than delta in lab studies but she says it is still better to be vaccinated than not Israel has begun the first clinical trials of a fourth vaccine dose against the new strain Russia is ready to sit at the negotiating table with the U.S. right after the new year Bloomberg's Amy Morris reports from Washington Russia wants an end to NATO's eastward expansion and they want some guarantee before the January 12th meeting with NATO Foreign minister Sergei Lavrov says they'll hold the main round of talks with the U.S. at the start of the new year Lavrov says Russia is not presenting any ultimatums but they won't accept in his words endless talks The U.S. has warned European allies that a massive Russian military buildup near Ukraine may be preparations for an invasion as early as next month In Washington I may be more as Bloomberg radio And 8th round of negotiations is underway in Vienna Austria over Iran's nuclear program the country's foreign ministers insisting these talks focus on Iran being allowed to export its own oil again Discussions are headed toward a state of limbo meaning the likely outcome could leave the 2015 nuclear court neither quite alive nor fully dead Global news 24 hours a day on Aaron on Bloomberg quick take powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts to more than a 120 countries this is Bloomberg You come into bed Hun Yep honey I'll be right there Just gotta.

"Do that Matt because markets are open this week And we have some real action as well I mean granted it's thin volume We always say that around the holiday time but it doesn't matter right If you're long this market you're happy to see it go up no matter what kind of volume you're looking at So we have the Dow Jones Industrial Average up a 150 points to 36,000 a hundred back up over 36,000 it's a big round number that doesn't really mean anything or matter too much but if you look at my age or older it's cool because you know there was a book down 36,000 and a prediction that no one thought would ever come true after a few years MP 500 gaining 8 tenths of 1% 47 64 the level there And although it didn't feel like there was much of a Santa Claus rally this month we've had this is the fourth day I think of pretty big gains We had the last three trading sessions up 1% and change So today another day of gains Yep Well doctor Anthony Fauci he was making the rounds this weekend Matthews on ABC's this week and he was talking about Americans how they should stay vigilant about becoming complacent about this omicron variant let's take a listen The issue that we don't want to get complacent about John is that when you have such a high volume of new infections it might override a real diminution in severity All right that was doctor Anthony Fauci making the rounds He was on ABC's this week over the weekend Let's check in today with doctor Samuel scarpino pathogen surveillance at Rockefeller foundation He's a managing director there Doctor thanks so much for joining us here I guess what one of the questions that I have a lot of people have about this omicron variant is how long is this going to last It seems like it's spreading so quickly Does that suggest that maybe it'll burn through much quicker than maybe we saw the delta or even the alpha variants The variant is spreading much more quickly than anything we've been used to It's one of the reasons why Doctor Fauci's concern about a lack of vigilance is so important because we're really at risk of hospitals getting overwhelmed What we did see in South Africa is that it was over much more quickly as a result of how fast the variant spreading Now in the United States that's going to depend on a number of factors The biggest of which being the underlying immunity how many people have already been infected with SARS CoV-2 and that's unfortunately something we don't have great data on We're just getting Kathy Ho called the governor of New York is holding a press conference right now Doc and she's saying on Christmas Day New York State saw 36,000 cases Now there are a lot of people in New York State but that's still a relatively high number And the state had 5500 COVID hospitalizations That's a more concerning number I think than the overall infections right now isn't it Especially with oma cron because this is the main concern that hospitals have too many COVID cases coming in and then can't deal with their day to today business Some across the country are even needing to call in the national reserves We've seen hospitals across the country have to call in National Guard members have to put in emergency procedures around care that they're giving Many states like New York have already eclipsed their previous high record for 7 day averages in the U.S. we're heading there We'll probably cross through that record within the next week or so This is a very serious situation One of the most concerning signs is that pediatric hospitalizations are also increasing rapidly They quadrupled in New York just over the past couple of weeks So doctor is the expectation is it a fair expectation that once we're through the omicron variant that we're going to have two kind of segments of the population the first is vaccinated And the second is they've been infected with either the alpha the delta the omicron that that's going to be kind of what the population looks like We're looking at a very high percentage of the population that will be infected with the omicron variant especially if they had not been previously infected nor vaccinated So I think you're right that what we're looking at is a situation where a very high percentage of the population has prior infection or vaccination Now the concern is the obon variant is reinfecting people at very high rates We know it's breaking through the vaccine at high rates And fortunately severity is still low because the vaccine is protecting individuals but we need to be very concerned about future variants We know they're coming and we know they may be still at risk for breaking through the omicron derived immunity And Los severity is great and of course there's still a smaller portion that's ending up in the hospital I guess a higher portion of unvaccinated people who are infected end up in the hospital But what do we know about longer term illness long COVID or the fact that the virus could affect systems beyond just your respiratory system and actually cause problems that last 6 months a year or longer Well first I would say that it is less severe than the delta variant I think it is by no means low severity If we think about the fact that COVID is probably ten times deadlier than the flu which is one of the top ten causes of death in the U.S. every year if it's a half as bad as the old versions of SARS CoV-2 it still may be 5 X worse than influenza So it's a very serious disease even if we are seeing a reduction in hospitalizations In terms of long COVID there's no data yet although I have no reason to suspect that we don't have similar high risks for long COVID especially for individuals that have not yet experienced infection That's one of the things that we're going to be learning about over the coming weeks months and years is all of the long-lasting effects of this disease not just on our bodies but on our economic health as well So doctor just real quick 30 seconds What's the next variant do you think Where do you think that's going to come from Well we need to focus on vaccine equity It's critically important that we get the world's population vaccinated That's the best thing that we can do to reduce the chance of variants emerging more than likely what we'll see as the next variant is an omicron that maybe spreads more efficiently and then the one after that will be a variant that breaks through the omicron derived immunity And that's what we're doing at the pandemic prevention institute is staying vigilant for these new variants to alert the world and respond quickly All right.
