"Unfortunately that data might not be detailed enough to accurately project when life could return to normal reporting on this in the Washington post is Craig Timberg who spoke with Thomas Jeff Pohjola first off how does this tracking data impact infection and mortality prediction models what you learned from looking at sort of aggregated data on people's movement is how much time they're spending away from home how much time that they're spending in places where folks congregate grocery stores at at the like so you know in the upside of this epidemic when we were all stopping moving around or stopping going into our workplaces the data had a very direct relationship you know people move less and affection went out and so how's that changed so that the the the map on the other side of the epidemic curve just looks different right because it at the time when we all stop going to work and taking our kids to soccer practice and all that all other things are going all right stocks to chatting in the same way with our neighbors maybe we stop shaking hands it could be said right masks and so that the sort of more subtle indicators of infection risk don't shop in the smartphone data at all my focus into a port ask my phone doesn't know that down I'm talking with a neighbor over a fence and we're two feet away from each other so there's just a lot of subtlety that get missed in this particular kind of data and how's it all collected you know this your seller support for responded to all the time okay it's what they could to meeting all this information this particular data come mainly from what from the apps on your smartphone so for example you know you have a weather app you may have the Facebook you may have Google maps all these things are kind of routinely try to figure out where you are both because that's how they work but also because that's how they figure out how to target advertising that yourself this is the kind of data that's being used by researchers now with being we have distorted it's Daddy used to be collected in order to it so when you walk by Starbucks you get and you get a coupon for event a lot today it's now being used to track people's movements on aggregate level to see how we're kind of complaint these government orders how detailed is is that location data can it get like down to the block in the know if you're home or not you are depends on how densely packed urban area you live in but yeah I'll block the block level in an urban area sure and that's the main metric they look after look actually at they don't know necessarily where we live but they do know that between you know say ten o'clock at night at eight o'clock in the morning you're not moving and they pursued it that your homework functional your home and then when you go somewhere else the notice that you black hole and that's the first indicator that there's potentially you would fight infection risk because within your home unit you may in fact people in your home but you're not going to kind of call the broader outbreak and what are the legal and and and I guess civil rights implications here because a lot of people don't like giving out that information if this is a tough one the data that's being used is Agra get it and it is anonymized so there's been a lot of concern over over many years that about a fight that is out of this as we'd like it to be but we are at we haven't actually seen any indication the smartphone data that the researchers are now using that that public health officials let I think is really exposing us to any new kind of risk in this way I mean something we worry about but it's not there's no evidence just problem here yet all right that's technology reporter Craig Timberg with

"Former Washington governor is saddened by what he views as attempts to demonise China for releasing or possibly even creating the virus that causes covert nineteen couples Corwin heck explains I'm just really upset and saddened by Seattle native and former governor Gary Locke is proud of his Chinese ancestry but he's also a proud American that's why it bugs him when Asian Americans down deep are still viewed by many people as not really American speaking on the Citi club program virtual civic cocktail block says he sees a backlash against Americans of Asian descent over rumors China created the corona virus or at the very least falsely downplayed its danger we need a full accounting of what did China no when did they know it and what are the real numbers but the point is that many other countries around the world receive the same warnings from the W. H. O. I saw the news coming out of China and they responded we did not the Democrat who served as commerce secretary then U. S. ambassador to China under president Obama says he is saddened by what he sees as the trump administration's attempts to sow division at a time in which we need for the entire population coming together to fight the virus we should not be dividing people Corwin hake komo news and of course ambassador lock was also commerce secretary under president Obama which means the twenty ten U. S. census was his first instability in Locke says our response in the region to the twenty twenty census is lagging unfortunately because of the corona virus right now most of the states including the state of Washington and all of our counties are today behind where they were ten years ago how lock says the census count determines how much representation our state gets in Congress and how much federal money flows are way he says those who don't fill out the ten question form either online or by mail can expect the census taker to knock on your door irresponsible that's how one Seattle city councilmember describes the council's decision to postpone a proposal the tax big businesses cancel member shama someone's tax Amazon proposal includes a one point three percent tax on businesses with payrolls over seven million dollars it also includes two hundred million dollars in relief money for those affected by covert nineteen so when someone learn that the council cancelled the proposals next hearing due to it not being in response to the corona virus I have to say I am not surprised actually but I'm completely Dondon scandalized by this decision her proposal also includes money for green new deal investments like use of solar energy in affordable housing zero zero comma news well some experts are saying the name might be a little much but the search for the so called murder Hornet has begun in Walker county where experts have begun setting traps the experts say they did get a little bit of a head start thanks to the discovery of some Asian giant Hornets in British Columbia last year still entomologist Chris Mooney with the Washington state department of agriculture says traps have not been perfected and as far as what they'll end up finding I get asked that question a lot I have no way to give you any kind of number I could I could randomly draw some low numbers out of the air some really high numbers out of the year we just don't know and that's why we're doing this many experts say the horns threat to humans has been exaggerated though what is seen as a threat to honey bees which have seen their numbers declined drastically across North America in recent years hello Neil Coleman who's at least twenty miles of Seattle streets will be permanently closed we get more from Thomas Jeff Pohjola the closures were initially made as part of the city's response to the covert nineteen outbreak as officials wanted to encourage social distancing and observed that nearly sixty percent drop in vehicle traffic we also are going to be accelerating the number of our bike lanes so that as people return to coming to work they can commute into Seattle safe with the road closures are in nearly every neighborhood of the city additionally city officials are re timing traffic lights so pedestrians don't congregate at intersections Jeff poacher look come on news you might notice some changes when you get back to a doctor's office in a post coronavirus world UW medicine's Dr Lisa Brandenburg says you'll see both staff and patients wearing masks as well as a lot of social distancing she also says antibody testing is something they'll continue to work on one of the first things we're doing here is we are offering this to all of you to medicine.

"Passed to help ease the economic hit from the corona virus about half will go to local governments and the rest of the states should you or should you not wear a mask for so many weeks now we've been told masks will do the common person no good and now the U. S. government is considering telling all Americans to wear masks but can't make that call until it's certain hospital supplies would not suffer ABC's Alex stone spoke with Thomas Jeff Pohjola but it does look like now evidence suggesting that masks do make a big difference China and Singapore have been among the country's really looking at the U. S. saying that they were not by being told not to wear masks if they believe that they curbed their high numbers by telling the public to put on masks now from the beginning Americans have been told not to wear masks and a lot of bad it appeared to have been to cut down on the supply problems for hospitals that they told Americans to wear masks hospitals wouldn't have any they didn't have enough as of now let alone if your every American trying to get masks and they were B. runs on whatever availability there is but it does now here is the numbers are going up at hospitals that did the White House is getting closer to saying the big yeah we should be wearing masks in fact we are today and I H. YouTube video that was made public today Anthony found she sang he would be for it if those numbers around here's what he said so I'm not against it as long as it doesn't take away from the supply of masks from those who really need like healthcare providers and he does say that mask strap or not one hundred percent full proof but he does say it is not a hundred percent is probably closer to fifty percent fifty percent better than nothing if you were told that you could take a medicine right now to give you fifty percent blockage of getting cold at nineteen you're right so yeah I'm gonna take that right out that's the belief now on the master the biggest part of it being even if you don't know you have it that if you're wearing it then you can't expel the virus out it lasts then been putting it on to prevent anything from coming in but now the the idea here being that they're looking at telling everybody put it on because you may or may not know that you have corona virus then you're not spreading it out to other people around you so are we talking about those coveted N. ninety five masks are just basks in general well looks like that they what they would tell Americans he is even a piece of cloth that that anything should work better than nothing the N. ninety five masks that leasing California we wear during wildfire season and you see gardeners using and and what not those are more for the hospital that that helps prevent getting the the disease in the virus scan yeah maybe down the road when they have enough of those will tell us we should be wearing those as well but it appears that they will begin by saying at some point if they do do it there we should be wearing some kind of weather B. just regular surgical mask or a piece of cloth something to prevent when you're just breeding you're here talking that everything coming out of your mouth you've been spewing out into the room that it's more trying to prevent that and then those who were in close contact with those who might be sending it out into the room wearing the and ninety fives which do some job not a foolproof job with some job of preventing that the virus from getting in he sees Alex stone joining us and that's almost Jeff postal bringing us to three twenty and your call will propel interest money update now here's Jim Tesco with the Tuesday session in the books we can now confirm that the twenty twenty first quarter was the worst ever January through March quarter for the Dow Jones industrial average with the slide of four hundred ten points today the blue chip index ended the quarter with a loss of twenty three percent the S. and P. five hundred dropped twenty percent over the three month period it's probably not a surprise but consumers confidence in the U.

"Stories now after nineteen years as Pierce county's top cop sheriff Paul pastore had planned to retire next month but he's withdrawn his announcement instead of stepping down pastore today said he's stepping up to help with the challenges posed by the covert nineteen outbreak president trump says the federal government is sending out more ventilators across the country to help treat coronavirus patients in the next few days more than a thousand will be sent to Michigan New Jersey Illinois and Louisiana the Olympic games have been postponed until July of twenty twenty one the international and Olympic committee forced into the decision after numerous countries said they would refuse to send athletes to Tokyo games this summer A. B. C.'s remember spoke with Thomas Jeff Pohjola what about these athletes many if not most of them are already qualified or they can have to qualify again next year no it sounds as though if you have qualified to this point by name and that you will continue that qualification through twenty twenty one but I mean it's by name is up for some sports of wrestling being the latest example the United States it went up and and got qualifying bids and wild one wrestler may have gotten that bad really the what the wrestler did was just secured the spot for team USA so for example a let's say with women's basketball we know that women's basketball USA has qualified for the Olympics but they have not yet set the roster so you know that there's still some decisions that have to be made but the athletes who qualified by name are already and now the reason they decided to settle on one year from the time that they were supposed to I mean one year did minus the day was because they said it not only they feel like that we would be through the cycle of covert nineteen but also they wanted to make sure it lined up with the international sports competition schedules basketball NBA basketball for one you didn't want to start this thing in may one basketball could at that point B. into its playoff season although we'll see at this point kind of how schedules in which direction they end up going and then in the coming days and weeks of course for the athletes this means another year of training especially when some of them like swimmer Katie Ledecky can't even find a pool yeah absolutely here's here's what's going on that that kind of makes this interesting because on one hand you've got some athletes who are kind of getting aged out this may have been their last chance they may have circle twenty twenty is the last opportunity to get to the Olympics and participate in the Olympics and they may not be willing to go to twenty twenty one for whatever reason maybe they've got another job lined up maybe their bodies just won't let them extend another year you've also got athletes too this is a great opportunity for them because maybe they were nursing injuries that I mentioned wrestling before there's one one athlete with a torn ACL this is going to give him an opportunity potentially heal up and get back into onto the mat and perhaps qualify so it kind of cuts both ways but for athlete in their prime whose goal is to make the Olympics probably a pretty good chance that they're going to continue on that journey and there's also an economic impact particularly when it comes to media NBC losing billions of dollars in ad revenue yeah and that may have been the reason that it's taken so long for the IOC to make this decision while all the other sports have been pushing back months you know that there've been a lot of I's to dot and cheese to cross as far as sponsorship goes as far as some of the financials the hope is that obviously all the people who invested in the twenty twenty one games will still be there twenty twenty games will still be there in twenty twenty one one of the biggest issues will probably end up hearing about in the next couple weeks it's about travel all those fans all the media that a book their travel will they be able to get vouchers will they be reimbursed how is that all gonna work out could you get a lot of people who planned this trip for a long time and now it doesn't look like it'll be happening all right ABC's Ryan burrow joining us on.
