That I trust as a doctor as a dad, Adams and National Institute of Health director Dr Francis Collins told the Senate Health Committee. The safety and efficacy of the vaccine won't be compromised. I'm reassured, and I hope it will be reassuring, Teo you that there are a number of steps in terms of how vaccines are going to be evaluated that are going to give that kind of sense of scientific objectivity.

NIH Director Dr. Collins and Surgeon General Dr. Adams Testify on Vaccines
"Well, it's a big concern. Can a vaccine for the Corona virus be developed at record speed and still be safe? While medical experts are telling lawmakers, science will prevail over politics?

GOP's Mitchell Miller today on the Hill, Senator Bernie Sanders pressed the experts during the Senate Health Committee hearing, noting President Trump has suggested a vaccine could come before Election Day. You enjoying me and many others in telling the president of the United States to get out of science and let the scientists do their job and I h director Francis Collins. I can't say strongly enough that the decisions about how this vaccine is going to be evaluated. Incest is going to be based on science. Collins did not.

"senate health committee" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"Members of the Corona Virus Task force. He updated the Senate Health Committee on the response to the Corona virus. Here. He is in an exchange with Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts. Dr Couching back in March. You also said, quote looking at what we're seeing. Now. You expected there to be between 100,000 and 200,000 Corona virus, death and millions of infections in the U. S. So let's flash forward Toa late June. Here we are. At the end of June. We've already seen 126,000 deaths, with infection rates rising rapidly. Dr Fauci based on what you're seeing now, how many covered 19 deaths and infections should America expect before? This is all over? I can't make an accurate prediction. But it is going to be very disturbing. I will guarantee you that because when you have an outbreak in one part of the country, even though in other parts of the country, they're doing well. They are vulnerable. I made that point very clearly last week at a press conference We can't just focus on those areas that having the surge. It puts the entire country at risk. We're now having 40 plus 1000 new cases a day. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 day. If this does not turn around, and so I am very concerned, and that was Senator Warren and Dr Fauci. He also noted that the recent rise in case is largely in the South and the West quote. Puts the entire country at risk. Here's more from his testimony at the Senate Health Committee today. We've got to make sure that when states start to try and open again, they need to follow the guidelines that have been very carefully laid out with three got the checkpoints. What we've seen in several states are different iterations of that, perhaps maybe in some going too quickly and skipping over some of the checkpoints, but even in states in which the leadership in the form of the governors And the mayor's did it right with the right recommendations. What we saw visually in clips and in photographs of individuals in the community doing and all unknown phenomenon, which is dangerous and buy all the known. I mean, either be locked down or open up in a way. Well, you see people in bars, not wearing masks, not avoiding crowds, not Paying attention to physical distancing. I think we need to emphasize the responsibility that we have both as individuals and as part of a societal effort to end the epidemic that we all have to play a part in that, and they think if you look at the visuals what we saw Where a lot of people who may be felt because they think they are invulnerable. And we know many young people are not because they're getting serious disease that therefore they're getting infected has nothing at all to do with anyone else, when in fact it does, because if a person gets infected, they may not be symptomatic, but they could pass it to someone else. Who passes it to someone else who then makes someone's grandmother, grandfather, sick uncle or leukemia child on chemotherapy, get sick and die. We've got to get that message out that we are all in this together, and if we're going to contain this, we've got to contain it together and Dr Fauci also testified that school administrators should take into account virus activity in their areas. When they consider reopening plans for the fall. Dr. Robert Redfield of the CDC took aim at American Airlines expressing disappointment that the airline had begun selling middle seats on its flights. Now, here's Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney, another member of the Senate Health Committee, questioning both Dr Fauci and CDC Director Redfield on what exactly, they would suggest Americans do in order to be safe. Where's the risk? Greatest? How is it that it's spreading? It's spreading indoors. Is it spreading more in restaurants and bars? Is it OK to be outdoors and perhaps not socially distance as our family reunions? OK, or you give us some guy in space, but hopefully we know as to where the risks are greatest. I know you keep saying social distance and master, but you know people are getting an airplane's. They're going to restaurants. Where is the risk? Greatest and Where we relatively say you'll help us through that family reunions. We get together with family reunions outdoors. Is it safer? Outdoors and indoors? Give us some guidance. Could you do that to Dr Fauci and Dr Redfield? Ah, thank you, Senator. I think first and foremost, the most important thing in that assessment is knowing at the granular level what the kinetics of transmission are in that community. As I mentioned, we have 130 counties right now in the United States. It's where we consider them quote hot spots. We have many other areas where there's very limited transmission. So first and foremost, it's knowing the if you're in that area of active transmission in second E. It's It's knowing what you do when you're in that area of active transmission. And what what precautions one takes. You know, it's gotta be brief. That's right like that. All right, well, I think those are the two things I will say that there's just more and more data showing that the use of face coverings and masks are an effective way to prevent transmission in these gatherings, and I think we're just going to come back and tell you the most important thing here within a community with limited transmission on you're wearing face masks or their significant transmission you're wearing facemasks. And you practice those social distance in hand washing. That's the best thing as recommendations. I can tell you. In addition, senator outdoor better than indoor. Baugh's really not really not good congregation at a bar. Inside is bad news. We really got to stop that right now, when you have areas that are surging, like the sea right now, But in answer to your question a little bit more granular outdoors always better than endure if you're out to a distance. Is this, Bob said, where a mask if you can, but you can have some social interaction. The one point I want to make very briefly is that we should not look at the public health endeavours as being an obstruction to opening up. We should look at it as a vehicle for opening up so that you don't want to just restrict everything because people are not going to tolerate that so you can get outdoors. You can interact where a mask try to avoid. Close congregation of People Wash your hands often, but don't just make it all or not. We've got to be able to get people to get out and enjoy themselves within the safe guidelines that we have. So make public health work for you as opposed against you. And that was doctors. Fauci and Redfield, speaking with Senator Mitt Romney earlier today at the Senate Health Committee. And in a new survey, seven in 10 Americans said they would get vaccines against the virus if immunizations were free and available to everyone, according to The New York Times. This number. Health officials fear may not be enough to achieve so called herd immunity, a term that signifies that a majority of the population has protection against infection. Now about 100 miles from Washington. Joe Biden, the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, made a speech on the Corona virus pandemic and on reopening the nation's economy..

President Trump Holds Press Briefing On China and WHO
"Begin with the latest out of DC following a news conference with President Trump. This afternoon where he ratcheted up the rhetoric on China and the World Health Organization. Let's go to Kayla Tashi in Washington Kayla there. The White House took an opportunity to redouble. Its hard line on China by very clearly outlining some policy positions that have been telegraphed previous administration officials in recent weeks in a policy package unveiled today the president said the US would be revoking visas for students and researchers with Chinese military ties the US would be studying accounting practices for possible delisting of Chinese companies. They'd be eliminating special treatment of Hong Kong and severing ties from the World Health Organization. Chinese officials ignored their reporting obligations to the World Health Organization and pressured the World Health Organization to mislead the world when the virus was first discovered by Chinese authorities. Countless lives have been taken in profound economic. Hardship has been inflicted all around the globe. The president stopped short of disrupting the phase. One trade deal or sanctioning top party officials even so the event was immediately panned by China. Who's global times? Newspaper called it a recklessly arbitrary move that builds on trump's bullying tactics and says the US will pay a hefty price for specifically any change in Hong Kong as for the move on the World Health Organization. Not everyone in. The President's Party was pleased with that. Lamar Alexander Tennessee Republican and the top Republican on the Senate Health Committee Put out a statement saying this thing. Certainly there needs to be a good hard look at mistakes. The World Health Organization might have made in connection with the corona virus. But the time to do that is after the crisis has been dealt with not in the middle of it and these broadsides come during the ramp up rhetoric in the election season that is just getting underway and is building up steam campaign officials. Say expect the heat to get turned up on this rhetoric going into November. Even if many of these policy actions are held in the wings until after the election is over with Sarah but one thing is very clear. Many strategists see this election as a referendum on president trump president trump in it sees China as a popular opponent

Supreme Court today about president trump's financial records three special congressional election is being held today Wall Street journal says online funeral businesses are soaring during the pandemic with things like hosting memorials on zoom and the delivery guy with a surprise for a stranger that story in about twenty minutes many patients hospitalized for coronavirus treatment won't have to worry about one headache if they have health insurance chances are they won't be charged out of pocket costs for Colbert nineteen treatment but it's reporter Leslie Albrecht at marketwatch found out that doesn't mean patients can expect a free trip to the hospital Leslie set this up well there's great news which is that of most of the major health insurers that you've heard of like Aetna anthem Blue Cross blue shield United all the big ones are saying that they're going to waive cost sharing for their patients at the fancy way of saying they're not gonna charge stuff like deductibles co pays co insurance all the things you get charge when you go to the hospital so that's great all right but there's a little bit of a cat with it which is that if you get your insurance through your job your employer can opt out of that so your employer can say I don't want to waive cost sharing for my employees and then he might be stuck with the bill okay so why I guess initially does there seem to be this apparent generosity well that's a good question help insurers say that they're you know they want to make this easy on their patients and they are trying to do what they can to help out during this tough time so they've been doing a lot of other things like waving the cost for Teladoc medicine which is what you call your doctor instead of going to visit them in person and they've been taking other steps to help make people feel like they're doing something to help people out so under what conditions then does a company waive the cost sharing and say you know we're not taking part in that yeah okay so it gets a little complicated but here's the deal sometimes the players are what are called self funded or self insured and that means that they play they pay for their health plans themselves and basically that most people who get their health insurance through their employers that put their employers to their self funded or self insured and even though like your insurance card might see at the moment your employer is the one who's actually paying for those bills so that's why employers are awaiting this decision there on the hook for the financially if they say like you know we can't afford to wait all the cost sharing for this that's why they're going to decide to opt out of this so if that's the case then what kind of build might we face as a patient yeah so this is where things get a little scary the Kaiser family foundation did some research on this and they found out that it can cost up to twenty thousand dollars to go to the hospital for coronavirus treatment but you're not gonna end up paying that you would pay if you had employer sponsored health insurance maybe about thirteen hundred Bucks okay so don't don't it's not as bad as all that but it's bad I mean that's a significant amount of money speaking with Leslie Albrecht personal finance reporter at marketwatch pieces called most major health insurers aren't charging patients for corona virus treatment but that doesn't mean it's free right so what do you think we need to consider Leslie if in fact we're going to need treatment for covert nineteen deal if you are getting sick with coronavirus and you have to go to the hospital what you should do is call your HR department at your job and say listen I heard that you know it insurers are waiving cost sharing that I want to know if our company is going to do that your HR person is the one who's going to be able to tell you if your employer is participating in this so the other thing I guess you have to watch out for with regards to cost is whether or not to you want to being in networker out network once you get to a hospital okay so that's the other aspect of this whole thing is even if the let's say okay you go to the hospital the other thing you have to worry about is surprise bills this is always a concern anytime we get healthcare but especially now it's a bit of extra concern for folks because in a lot of situations you know they're bringing in specialists to look at your loans they're bringing in you know people who wouldn't ordinarily maybe interact with you to treat corona viruses so there's a good chance you could end up with an out of network bills for alternative pride and if that happens there's a number of steps you can take okay like what well first of all don't pay it right away you should wait and just trying to figure out like what your options are one thing is that there's a lot of legislation is being passed that like changing the situation every day so in some cases Congress is saying people shouldn't have to pay certain bills and things like that so the other thing you need to do is look at your explanation of benefits that slick the the the paper that comes making sure and your insurance company and explains how much they're going to be covering how much you're expected to pay the amount that's listed on that it's not the same as the one listed on your bill then
