"I'm Scott Simon. And thanks for joining us Their signs that the pandemic is headed in the wrong direction as the highly contagious Delta very and spreads. Cases in the U. S are going up so the number of hospitalizations and deaths, CDC director Rochelle Walensky said in a briefing yesterday. The trend is clear, unvaccinated people are at risk. NPR health policy correspondent Selena Simmons. Duffin joins us, Selena. Thanks for being with US Morning, Scott. I gather numbers are going up, but not necessarily everywhere. Yeah, that's right. So, Wolinski says it's a little bit of a mixed picture cases are rising in some places like California and New York that have pretty good vaccination rates. But she says, by far the most spread is happening in places where not many people are vaccinated. In fact, she said, 97% of people who get so sick with covid 19 that they have to be hostile. Realized are unvaccinated officials are concerned by these numbers and point out that sickness and death is avoidable. Covid 19 is now a vaccine preventable disease, and people who have been holding out should get vaccinated. Do scientists know other Delta variant seems to be more transmissible than the original strain? So actually, yes, I talked to virologist Angela Erasmus in about this. She's a research scientist at the Vaccine Infectious Disease organization at the University of Saskatchewan. And she pointed to a compelling pre print study out of China recently that showed people who were exposed to the Delta variant got sick fast And on top of that, when they started to test positive, their viral loads were 1000 times higher. And people who had been infected with a variant that had been circulating in 2020 that suggests people infected with Delta are shutting way more virus, which could explain why it's so contagious, Rasmussen says. The good news is that it's still transmits in the same way as the original strains. So all of those mitigation tools like masking and hand washing and social distancing all of those still work to block Delta and the vaccines are still highly effective against this variant. Does this mean the vaccinated people don't need to worry right now, Um, CDC guidelines still say that vaccinated people, for the most part don't need to wear masks. Is that correct? Yes, that's right. But I would say CDC is a bit out of step with a growing course of health experts on this front who say it does make sense to wear masks indoors if you're going out in public This is Helen Chu. She's a professor of medicine at the University of Washington. I would so I haven't stopped asking indoors. I live with unvaccinated Children. I do not want to put them in a situation where I may transmit to them. So even though the chances of getting very sick and dying from Covid 19 are very low for vaccinated people, the risk is not zero and people can still get infected. I mean, it doesn't seem like the CDC might take another look at those masking guidelines right now. Right now. It does not seem so. CDC is standing firm when asked about it at the briefing yesterday will end Ski only said that in places that are hot spots where there's low vaccination rates, it may make sense for local officials to consider masking requirements until the vaccine campaign can catch up. But I should say that one large county L. A county made that call this very week. An indoor mask mandate for everyone, including vaccinated people goes into effect at midnight tonight, so we'll have to see if other places follow suit. NPR health policy correspondent Selena Simmons. Duffin. Thanks so much. Thank you. Officials in Haiti have announced that the assassinated president voice will be buried next week in the north of the country, where he was born and grew up. Many ordinary Haitians say that President Muis oversaw a major breakdown in law and order in the country. Criminal gangs flourished in some critics say with the approval of the president, NPR's Jason Beaubien has been in Port au Prince all week. Jason Thanks for being with us. Hey, it's good to be with you, Scott. You've been reporting from Haiti. Uh, various times more than a decade. What? What strikes you about the country this time? Yeah. I mean, Haiti has always been a place the tag crime gangs have operated here for a long time. But you know, never in my trips to Haiti has one issues so dominated what people talk about? Security security. I mean, I didn't hesitate to answer is security. We have a major problem. That's the head of radio TV Metropole here in Puerto Prince Richard Witmeyer. I don't know where anybody that really feels safe. Under present movies, Gang grabbed control of much of port of Prince, particularly near the waterfront. They regularly cut off roads to the south of the country. The gangs are so powerful and so alarmed the police don't even bother to try to confront them. These criminal groups. They kidnap people that kill people. They extort people, and it's all with impunity and as the police were weakened under Moyes's rule, the violence and insecurity spread all over even outside gang areas, and would Meyer says that his reporters are regularly getting attacked. I'm not even talking about gangs, gangs. We don't even dare go where they are. So we are frustrated, not being able to do the work because we feel in danger and we don't have answers to that. Again. It's mostly they're really scared for their lives. It's hard to cover. So why is this rise in violence and insecurity being blamed on President Luiz People here are telling me that movie. Just let it happen. Always actively undermined much of the apparatus of the state, For instance, he let the parliament dissolved and never held elections to reestablish it. Courts shut down because judges weren't appointed to fill empty seats. Critics say boys basically let government agencies wither and die so that he had more power in his hands at the presidency. Jason this makes it sound like Haiti has a lot more to resolve than just finding President Louise's killers. Absolutely absolutely. Haiti is facing huge challenges. You know, First, the country needs to figure out who actually is in charge and is the rightful successor to moist right now and how to pick its next leader. All of that is complicated. I talked with Monique, Alaska. She's a former unofficial and she's working with this group called the Commission for Haitian Solution to the crisis, she says. This is a very important moment for change in Haiti right now, and the reforms start by finding more voices killers. We are asking for justice for him. What We're asking for justice for all the people who were massacred under his rule. There were massacres documented by human rights organizations there massacres under his rule the last one a week. Before he died. She says. Finding the truth about his assassination is a way to break this pattern of impunity that had become the norm under Moyes, his time in office, NPR's Jason Beaubien and Porter Prince, thanks so much for being with us, Jason You're welcome, Scott. In Philadelphia Earlier this week, President Biden again called on Congress to pass legislation to protect voting rights. Many activists say that he hasn't made the issue of top priority despite the big push in Republican led states to try to restrict voting access as NPR's Juana Summers reports. Speaking in the birthplace of American democracy, President Biden called the fight against restrictive voting laws, the most significant test of democracy since the civil war. And he tried to re energize the push for Democrats sweeping bill to change the election system and a second bill that would restore key provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights Act As soon as Congress passes before the people acting the John Lewis voting rights, Advanced Mac I will.
