"From NPR and WB. You Are Tanya Moseley. I'm Robin Young. It's here now and today. White House Press Secretary Kaley. Mcenaney defended president trump after pretty widespread criticism of his announcement that even though there is no evidence that the drug hydroxy chloroquine either treats or prevents cove in nineteen. He is taking it to stave off the onus. Here's the president yesterday. I've taken it for about a week and a half now and I'm still here. Dr Steven Nissen is the chief. Academic Officer of the Miller Family Heart Vascular enthusiastic institute at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr Is there any evidence that this drug can prevent covert nineteen? There's no evidence yet There are studies underway. But there's no proof that the drug actually can prevent or treat cove in nineteen illness. Let's be clear because after the president suggested months ago that could treat the illness a man took what he thought was a form of chloroquine. It was not and he died and his wife said he took it because the president said to. What are your concerns about the president? Now saying that he's taking hydroxy chloroquine as a preventive. Well we are concerned. Patients will act on this information The drug is out there. It's widely available some of it was horrid when this first came up and it's important for the public to understand that. Hydroxy Clark one has adverse effects it can cause heart rhythm disturbances and that was heart rhythm. Disturbances can actually be lethal. Well a recent study with a nearly four hundred patients with cove in nineteen who are being treated at veterans administration centers found. There were more deaths among the patients who were given hydroxy chloroquine than those who didn't take it. Some studies have been stopped because of as you said this of fatal reaction having to do with heart issues. There are studies ongoing and there is a study at the University of Minnesota looking at whether hydroxy chloroquine can prevent the corona virus as opposed to treating and a professor there told USA. Today there's no data that this pre exposure use can prevent cove in nineteen. They're continuing the study. But right now they see no evidence. So the president we know has heart disease and is also has obesity. Do you have concerns there? Well look it's between the president in his physicians whether he takes it. The problem is when you make a public announcement. The public will take that at face value. And they may act on that information and we don't want people taking Hydroxy Clark Quin particularly if they have heart disease. But even if they don't this is a serious drug it's used primarily in the US to treat rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus and the reason the FDA keeps it on the market is because those are serious disorders where the benefits likely exceed the risks. But the most common reason why drugs are taken off the market is the kind of heart rhythm disturbance that Hydroxy Clark when can produce and so we don't want people taking this without good evidence because it can be fatal reaction as you mentioned. It also keeps the drug because people are hoarding it and stockpiling. It keeps it from people who need it. We're GONNA be speaking in the program to a woman with lupus who can't get the drug because it's being stockpiled bought up and then there are the health concerns now. We should say the White House physician said just what you said that they approve. The president taking this because the potential benefits outweighed the risks. We know the president has had contact with people in the White House who've been diagnosed with covert nineteen your thoughts on that. I mean it would be speculation. Well I don't agree that the benefits are likely to exceed the risks. If everybody that's been exposed to the virus to take Hydroxy Clark and we would have a huge number of people taking it and we would see an outbreak of this heart rhythm disturbance that is known to occur with Hydroxy Clark one so I think it's important for the public to just take a deep breath and wait. Let's see what the evidence shows and if it shows benefit I will be the first to say great but in the absence of scientific evidence of a benefit this is entirely speculation and the risks are very well known just a couple of weeks ago when I was in the coronary intensive carrying it a patient with rheumatoid arthritis taking drug came in and had a series of heart rhythm disturbances that were very nearly lethal required. Multiple Cardiac shocks was a very close call. I don't want that to happen to large numbers of Americans who might misunderstand the benefits and start taking these this type of drug Dutch Steven Nissen. Chief Academic Officer of the Miller Family Heart Vascular enthusiastic institute at the Cleveland Clinic. Thank you so much my pleasure. We turn our attention now to the impact of the corona virus on the five hundred tribal nations in the United States. Nearly four thousand people have tested positive on the Navajo nation. And more than one hundred forty people have died which means the Navajo nation. Now has the highest per capita infection rate in the country. The number of cases continued to grow as tribal governments waited weeks for delayed relief funds allocated to them through the cares act for the latest. We're joined by an Avi Smith. She's assistant editor of the indigenous affairs desk at high country news. Welcome Hi thank you so anna. Earlier this month Federally recognized tribes began to see some of those emergency funds allocated to them through the cares act but even still it's only about half of the eight billion dollars Allocated to get over a month ago. Can you take us back a bit to? What exactly is behind? Some of these delays. Sure Yes to begin with an early March. The Families First Colonel Virus Relief Package set aside forty million for tribal governments things like healthcare preparedness but that got caught up under the Centers for Disease Control and not being able to hand over that money to the Indian Health Service so that preparedness money wasn't able to Get to tribe so that they could kind of scale up then. Moving into the end of March was the cares act that was signed into law and the National Congress for American Indians for twenty billion originally. But they instead it got the billion that you just mentioned so going into April we saw some litigation from tribes over those funds because they still had been distributed and the fact that the US Treasury was trying to include Alaskan native corporations into those funds which tribal governments were concerned about that. Because you have a finite amount of money and that would about a two hundred thirty corporation. So what significantly reduced the amount that troops could get as of May fifth the Treasury has friendly to begin to distribute some of those funds so many delays in these delays have real human consequences and New Mexico. We're hearing that native Americans make up about fifty percent of the total deaths in the state. Now that some tribes are finally getting some of their federal relief package money. What are the resources that are needed? Most and how is this money getting spent? Yeah sure so. First of all there are limits to what tribes can spend with the Kazakhs Funds. So things like health expenses medical expenses incurred from corona virus or different economic supports due to shut down. So there's a specific set of things. They can use it for. It's not like a blank track and for The Navajo Nation for example. They received six hundred million Of of those funds and are now working on expenditure plan. So they're still not seeing that money you know going to work in these communities yet. 'cause not has to go through their process but President Jonathan Nez has said he would like to see the money spent on things like personal protective equipment water infrastructure food packages and things like that and it varies from tribe to tribe so the crow tribe in Montana I received twenty five million and they're spending it similarly and then the pyramid Lake Pie tribe in Nevada is taking a different tack and are distributing some of their funds directly to tribal members. Kind of like what? The federal government did was stimulus tracks. Can you give me a sense We have been focused. So much about P. P. E. for folks food for folks who have now lost their jobs. I mean these are all efforts that are happening in real time. Are there any other efforts that have been happening on many of these tribal lands to to help people while they wait for this money? Yeah there's a lot of food programs that's going on people are still trying to deliver water on the Navajo nation. Roughly forty percent of Navajo. Don't have running water. And so those kinds of efforts sutter kind of grassroots level. Have been really important as well. Yeah in so many ways Cova nineteen has really made clear the complex relationship between tribal governments and the US federal and state governments not just what the allocation of these funds but now In South Dakota for instance. The governor's office says it will sue to tribes if they don't take down their covert nineteen prevention checkpoints on state and federal highways In terms of questions of sovereignty and legal jurisdiction. What can we expect next? So you're definitely right about. The big picture is really about tribal sovereignty and also the right for tribes to govern themselves. And keep there's trouble citizens safe so I think that it's kind of yet to be seen What exactly will happen. The tribes have said though they will consider her proposal to make changes to the checkpoints but they haven't decided.

Susan Davis reports it's unclear if either proposal has the support to pass the Senate on Thursday, the Senate will take up competing Republican and democratic bills to reopen government. The Republican plan includes President Trump's five point seven billion dollar requests for border wall money in exchange for temporary changes to 'immigration laws. The democratic proposal is a stopgap funding Bill to reopen the government until February eighth that will allow border security talks to continue without continuing to tie up unrelated government agencies and workers affected by the impasse. Either proposal needs sixty votes to advance in the Senate, and it's unclear either Bill can get a super majority in a narrowly divided chamber the agreement at least forces senators to take the first shutdown related votes since it started thirty two days ago.

The breakthrough comes after a year long stalemate with Amtrak. Amtrak owns the tracks. The MTA wants to use them to run trains from Penn station to four still to be built stops in the east Bronx for the last year. Neither side would budge on two issues. Amtrak wanted the MTA to replace the century-old Pelham bay bridge, which needs major upgrades and Amtrak wanted to charge the MTA access fees to use its tracks this month governor Cuomo swooped in and made a deal that old bridge everyone agreed to wait another ten to twenty years to replace it those fees. Amtrak will wave them in exchange for future discussion of a Long Island expansion while Amtrak's board must approve the agreement. The MTA is moving forward with designs for the four new stations and city council speaker Cory Johnson is still hoping to influence the deal to bring Amazon to queens. He says the council will hold more hearings on the proposed. Three billion dollars in subsidies for the company Johnson promises. There will also be a chance for city residents to chime in. We're going to have a large hearing for the public to come testify about what their thoughts are on the proposed Amazon deal governor Cuomo and mayor de Blasio negotiated the deal with the tech giant without input from the public or from city or state lawmakers.
