"A is IKEA With today's latest numbers in the last 24 hours more than 91,000 Covert 19 tests have been reported for a total of almost 9.8 million tests here in Illinois. Today we are reporting 8322 new cases and 47 additional lives lost to Cove in 19. This brings the total number of cases in Illinois to 664,620, including 11,552 lives lost overnight in the hospitals across the state. 6171 individuals were in the hospital with covert 19 and of the 1206 were in the ICU and 635 were on ventilators. Now the FDA has approved a new anti body theater therapy for people with covert 19 and Dr A. Z. K was asked if people in Illinois might be getting that we know that they had landed. The man is a monoclonal antibody that did get anyway. Approval of the government has already provided us over about 8500 doses. We have teams that are working right now to discuss the equitable distribution of this very important resource. Making. We're gonna make sure that in terms of communication that the public is aware of this resource and who are the appropriate candidates, this is for high risk individuals, older individuals, people with co morbid conditions that would potentially have AH, worst course. And so this infusion is to be given before early in the infection to help prevent any hospitalization. We also heard about Regeneron. So we're grateful for the scientific pharmacy, pharmaceutical advances and as soon as we get any of that, and we'll also be reaching out to get us much as we can. We will make sure that those resources are equitably distributed to every part of our state she was asked about harm reduction of the tribunal is a front page article. Today about the philosophy of harm reduction. And now that was used to stem HIV transmission with that work here, I have been trying to use that. I know some people would say that. Oh, you're talking out of both sides of your mouth. But the truth is, I always give the safest methods to proceed and then for people who are not going to follow that, at least I try to give quote the harm reduction strategies, something that's not quite a safe as option 80. But if you aren't gonna follow Option B, a I try to give the best ways that you can make your choice a little bit safer than maybe what you would be doing So, yes, I think we're trying to utilize that harm reduction principle. One of the big stories today we talked earlier about the certification of the Biden win in Michigan. And now there are reports that the General Services Administration has told President Biden that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process so Will continue to follow that and see how that develops. But it looks as if perhaps the transition will be getting underway and Illinois back here. The governor was asked today if he's concerned about a bigger surge as we travel for Thanksgiving. Well, we've put in place the preparations. Indeed, we're concerned, deeply concerned about the rising number of infections and the follow on hospitalizations, ICUs people on ventilators and, of course, the deaths. And so you know, what we've done is make sure that we're doing everything we can to limit the spread with litigations. We've been working with the hospitals to make sure that they have whatever they may need to prepare for this, You know, uptake. You know it Z. I am concerned that people are not following the medications because I even saw a story about a mayor here in Illinois who flew to a wedding in Florida. Didn't wear a mask at the wedding had more than 50 people at the wedding, and, you know that's the kind of thing that that's precisely what we ask people not to do. So I'm concerned about, you know, people just thinking that this doesn't affect them. I am. And of course it does. And we're gonna see the effect of that after the Thanksgiving holiday, And I hope that we are prepared mostly what we could all do to prepare his follow the mitigations. Where your mask Socially distant, you know, follow the Tier Three indications. The governor once again today said that it is important that the Congress come up with some form of stimulus to help the states and others affected by this crisis. In recent weeks, fewer Illinois ins are claiming regular unemployment benefits. And for some, that's good news because it means that they've gone back into the workforce. But there also are others who are unable to get a job and instead are transitioning into extended endemic assisted. Its programs. Here's where that leaves us. We now have Morrell annoyance, claiming pandemic emergency unemployment compensation. The temporary 13 Week extension of benefits. Congress passed is part of the chairs act back in spring and extended benefits, which Illinois and most other states have provided this year than at any point in this pandemic, the pandemic Unemployment assistance program yet another one for the self employed Plus the federally funded extra 13 weeks of PE, you see benefits for eligible regular unemployment claimants, plus the seven weeks of extended for extended benefits for eligible claimants. All of those programs expire literally the day after Christmas. So unless the Republican Senate gets a stimulus bill moving in December, Republicans will be putting a big lump of coal at the Christmas stockings of a whole lot of American family. The governor, referring to unemployment insurance, and Illinois attorney General Kwan May, Raul talked about The surgeon unemployment fraud plaguing the state. Since July, My office has received nearly 850 written consumer complaints and approximately 4000 calls to our hotlines about unemployment insurance fraud. Unfortunately, I myself can attest that anyone can be targeted by these cameras because I myself received a phony debit.

"Today we're reporting 12,601 new cases. For a total of 597,849 cases. In Illinois. We've received reports of 97 additional lives lost. For a total of 10,875 deaths overnight. 5887 people were in the hospital with covert 19. That is 1000 more than we had at our peak in the spring. Of those 5887 1158 patients when the ICU and 545 patients were on ventilators. And hospitals throughout the state. One out of every four patients has Cove. It And that number is only going to grow. So if those covert numbers grow and flew, hospitalizations will grow. Where will someone go with chest pain? Where would they go? If they cutely noticed facial droop after a car accident. We have to be able to take care of all of the people of Illinois and have the hospital capacity to do so. Doctor Z K says gatherings must be avoided. Science is there and it's pretty simple. If you're not in the physical presence of other people, the virus can't spread to someone else It can and will spread at a party it can and will spread. At a dining establishment it can and will spread at a large Thanksgiving gathering. It can and will spread at a wedding and it can and will and has spread. At funerals. It's like dominoes. If you take one or two out of the line, the dominoes stop falling because there's not something to hit. We've got to take things out of the line, so there's not something that head The I. D ph Director was asked why high school sports was added to the restricted list. Any time there's a gathering. There's an opportunity for transmission and we are falling short. We're not doing a stay at home order. We know that that worked, but we are trying to start from there and move and allow people to do some things. But the goal is to stop infection from spreading. And so that means halting people in their tracks. So we can't have hundreds of thousands of kids moving around for practice and games and travel. We can't have hordes of people looking at an exhibit in the museum. We can't have groups. I mean, if people are canceling Thanksgiving with their family, because we know that that could be the cause of spread. It should be clear that these larger entities of hundreds of thousands of kids moving around for sports also pretend some spread. So I just I'm begging everyone's indulgence to understand that we have to halt as much as we can. This is even beyond what we've put forward. People have to make their own personal choices. Halts even more. That's the only way we're gonna get to. We all have kids that play sports. This is a pause so that when their parents or grandparents want to go to the hospital for something, there's actually a bed. There's actually a healthy nurse or doctor or respiratory therapist or food service worker to tend to those people in the hospital. That's the simple goal that we're all achieving. That's all we're trying to get Doctors. Ikea was asked. Why not just do a statewide stay at home order? And what would you be saying? If we said we were doing that? Then there would be like, Why do we have to close everything we need to get our You know our haircut. We need to be able to take care of ourselves. I mean, there's no way to win and this these are all impossible decisions. We have stepped back from a full stay at home order. That's the final trigger, obviously, but if everyone cooperates with us on this pause We don't have to go to the full extreme. And so I hope everybody sees how much we're trying to give some people something while trying to make sure that we protect the health and safety of the people of Illinois governor Pritzker says his daughter has been under attack over a bogus Twitter post. We have threats that stream into my office daily, while we have watched The kidnapping plot against the Michigan governor unfold just a state away. I'm the governor. I was elected to this job. And while I don't think it should come with a fear for my health and safety, I accept that sometimes it does. I'm an adult. And I can handle people throwing my face up on anti Semitic picket signs like hitting me to Hitler. This kind of vitriol is apparently what I have to deal with. To keep the state and its people safe. But my kids, my kids are off limits. Among elected officials and people in positions of responsibility that didn't used to happen. There was a time in American politics when the rule was sacrosanct. Kids are off limits. This should not be controversial. So I'm appealing to our collective sense of decency and our fundamental understanding of right and wrong to keep my child out of political disagreements. And to understand that I'm going to fight like hell to protect her privacy. I ask that you all respect that privacy. I'm willing to make the hard decisions that sometimes brings on vitriol from political opponents. But my Children shouldn't have to come under attack. Chicago's top doctor, Doctor Allison are what he gave the city's coded numbers. As of today, we have had 135,149 people diagnosed with covert 19 in Chicago. If we break that down more than 25,000 of these people, almost one in five of the people who have ever had covert in Chicago. Have coveted right now that lets you know how much this is surging. You can see about 79% of the people who have had covert in Chicago have recovered and between two and 3% of the people who have been diagnosed with covert in Chicago have died. But if we come back to this number where there are 25,000 people right now who are tested and infectious with Kobe Ed, we know that about 5 to 7 times as many people as have been tested actually have covert 19 and we know that based on our death numbers, based on some of the serology testing that's been done and based on estimates across the country. Moving to sports. And Dan Hampton was on with Bob Surround this morning, and he talked about the Bears lost to the Vikings. You know? What is it? The orange jerseys? Is that the problem? Did you did you have those? By the way when you were playing No, no, you know, and Unfortunate. A zit. Maybe, you know, I mean, the pumpkin jerseys seemed to be a sign of bad luck. And you know it. It was It was a very unfortunate evening. You know, do the Bears offense just this You know, it may be more than just, you know, met Maggie calling places. It looks like it. Z one of those things that it's going to take a long time to come right the ship. They're not. And that they're not able to do much other Hamp you felt as as I did. I'm sure that the Bears defense played certainly well enough for them to win this game. Absolutely. Then you know, it's some point you You know you you got to say, what do they have to do? Shut everybody out. You know it's it's kind of getting to that point because of the the decision sees on offense, But the one thing that really kind of get a sticks in my craw is the fact that we could never sustain you know anything on the offensive side? Yeah, the defense, you know, that's like, great. You know, special teams. Well, father gets out, but It's just hard to know. Hard to play the game when you know your offenses, you know, one touchdown is about the maximum.

"Be addressing the state about some new restrictions that'll go into place. Feels like just a few days ago, we were talking about how four new county's would now have rolled back some of the rules there. We had Cain, Kankakee will and DuPage counties, so no indoor dining, and then they restricted gatherings and had some other things in place limits on gatherings to 25 people or 25% of room capacity we're expecting. I think I know you've heard so far Lauren in terms of in advance of what he might say, but we know that it's the Metro East area. I believe near Kind of near ST Louis, that part of the state and then suburban cook. Yeah, they imparted. Yeah, And it's funny because I'm looking here. Positivity rates in Illinois continue to rise there looking at that metric, as health officials say, now averaging more than three times the state average in the U. S 57,000 new test Monday and a seven day average of more than 70,000. So they're saying that hospitalizations air slowly rising across the state. Hospital resource is remain well within state limits. I'm reading from WNS website here as a state officials report. 2600 patients were hospitalized with Cove in 19, including nearly 600 intensive care so other regions they look at this fails the safe level. They call it fail safe level, and when you cross that certain Level of days of positivity rates going up in hospitalization numbers, the governor says. That's when these new mitigation measures will kick in. So I think the one suburban Cook County and Metro East, he's going to announce we're told they start on Wednesday of this week. Wednesday. And so this is where can get confusing in Chicago. Right now. Indoor dining is allowed for restaurants and bars that have, you know food orders, right? That's not going to be the case for this. New mitigation measure. All indoor dining is going to be off limits all indoor dining in suburban Cook in the Metro hysteria Metro East Area, in addition to the counties that already have been doing it. Um, limits on gathering to 25 people 25% of room capacity, whichever's less. No indoor service at bars and restaurants. Outdoor service ends at 11 P.m. again I don't know how they do after service when it's going to be 30 degrees. But I'm some of some people are figuring that out was reservations are required in bars and restaurants and no shared tables allowed. Obviously, no party buses and gaming casinos also see restrictions in addition to liquor. Stores, too. There was a very emotional Did you see Dr Z K? I think it was Friday afternoon. If not Saturday. I just happened to catch it. Yesterday She was announcing the new totals in the positivity rate had been going up. The number of new cases and it got very emotional, so emotional that she she had to pull away from the microphone and turn away and and she started to cry, I think and it just you know, she she does seem to take all of this. So personally really has a big heart You can tell, and she just gets very She's getting very upset is she was seeing things move in the wrong direction. I know. She also personally has lost several family members. And so it's probably hard for her not to think of the people in the families and the faces behind each of the numbers that she mentions. She's always done that. You know, you've always sort of seen that in her face and the emotions and you could tell when things were going well by this for the state, and when they weren't And she hasn't had good news for us Really. Lately. I think Dr Z K will be part of this. Who's um, Is it the governor and doctors? Ikea Lauren that we're looking at, You know, they said other health leaders, so I would expect that the the normal group of people will be there. Dr Zika usually is always the one to give us the totals in terms of new cases and deaths, so I would I would be very shocked if she was not there. Yeah, I would, too. Andan the latest. We're hearing that, okay, So like you said, it's getting confusing because there's so many carve outs here. But right now Chicago is still carved out from what we think the governor is going to say. Right, so he Chicago, the city of Chicago itself is not part of this order that he is about to announce for these two regions. However, Mayor Lightfoot announced last week that she was putting in place this two week business curfew. Says she likes to call it and that's why the restrictions are slightly different than what we're about to hear for suburban Cook County. That's right. We heard from their life. But she called into the show just about an hour after she had put those news new restrictions into place, and they largely in the city deal with bars that don't serve food. That was what she carved out because, she said, those are the kinds of places where people let down their guard. And maybe go right to Ah party at someone's house after the city still says it's social gatherings and in sort of the community spread is coming from those events where people are getting together in private with people they know. That's where three of the four cases three out of four of the new cases air coming from according to the city, the state is deciding. This is one of the levers they can pull to restrict bars and restaurants and they're going to pull it because going into this type of weather they're saying that this is something they want to do. So that's AH, That's what we expect the governor to say. When he steps up here. It's some It's a big deal. You know, we've been spotlighting some of the restaurants and businesses calling into the show the last few days last end of last week, and today, folks who are just barely surviving after the restrictions that have already been in place, trying to do the right thing through all of this trying to keep their restaurants as safe as possible. We just heard from the owner, one of the owners of Fox Fire In Geneva and Diana. He's about to start so I'm going to bring him out here. Good afternoon, everyone and welcome to our daily covert 19 update briefing. Doctors. CK and I are joined here in Peoria at OSF ST Francis Medical Center by Bobby Anderson, The president of OSF, Dr Michael Cruise,.

"Our healthcare system would lead to real devastation. So I'm very very concerned. About what the president you are. You raise the numbers seen you again. I'm I'm trying to follow the science here and I am concerned that we may have to extend that headline You know we. We have to start to see some movement in the numbers in the right direction or at least a shaping of the curve. That looks like we're you know we're we're we're hitting you know a good spot in that curve You know and it's early. It's early just can't you? Anything quite yet. I've been told that you know it takes As little as eight days certainly but as many as fourteen or perhaps more and you need to keep an eye on hospitalizations. That's really because we have. We have had so such minimal testing. Really you have to keep an eye on the hospitalization rate that that tells you for sure you know how many people are really sick And what the direction of that. Hospitalization is and so we again. We haven't seen enough data yet to really know when we can bring the restrictions off but again watching every day and looking at the data every day. Okay we have to go to some of our line This question is for Dr Z. K. While the Governor says he does not know so many are asking. When do you believe we will see a peak in Illinois? Can you give us some sort of time period weeks or months and also of the sixteen people who have died? How many had underlying conditions I think In terms of the first question in terms of actual prediction of timelines. I think it's. It's not wise for us to try to put timelines together.

K. making the movie a book you would the one everywhere number one for broadcasting one oh five and I are radio station good morning and thank you for checking out this edition of power on the block I'm your host can gain a pound the black is on your radio in in your community and every week you know we check in with you and let you know you know because some information that could possibly help you to make better make decisions I should say in your day to day we want to give you information you can use I want to remind you before I get started with this week so to log on and connect with us online at power one oh five one FM dot com connect with the power family and of course we've got a Facebook page I know I should move along billing and but you know this is easy on Facebook it's easy connected me a power on the block with him again I'd love to hear from you and this morning we are joined by a return gas and he and his organization are doing incredible work and the communities to help bridge the gap and bring people together along with our police force and Frederick walked a police athletic league welcome back to the show thank you for having me absolutely so I I just kind of want to give people a little bit of background because you're you're the executive director of this organization you got a law degree from Columbia and you've been doing this for for a while so I wanna hear more about you but first I I just quickly want to say that I'm police athletic league has been around for over a hundred years and they've helped the millions of new Yorkers build their futures by providing them with a safe nurturing and supportive places to play and learn but you also kind of you know help to like can act regular people with police officers and make sure that they're having positive interaction so just talk about that sure so we start at you know at at at our core we you know we want to develop youth who want to help you in any way we can and we have programs for children started the age too for child care we go all the way up until hopefully they go off to college so we are a kind of an organization where we hope to teach them give them a safe place to play give them good opportunities in sports and education but we do all that with the help of law enforcement's our hope is that while we're developing these youth we are also developing a better relationship between the communities and police officers and other law enforcement we think we've been pretty successful in doing that yeah now how you go about that I mean it and there's certain partnerships that you that you're form with that with the police there and in New York City or what's what's the process sure well they're they're kind of two ways that would look at it one is the traditional way that we've worked it is we get lots of police officers too often volunteer most of them are volunteers to coach and play sports with the kids so that's you know we have Lee sports leagues throughout the five boroughs and police officers are interacting with the younger kids as their coaches and as they get older they're actually teammates and they play and that really creates a good sort of working relationship between the young people and the officers so that's sort of one way the second way is with the NYPD's community policing focus they have offices that are focused on creating these relationships and creating and and working with our centers so all of our programs the neighborhood police precinct sends offices over to participate it could be anything from reading to a child to coming to an event the just interacting with them in a positive way in there you know after school program or evening program so that's kind of a second way with the police had really focused on this community relations and we take advantage of that focus by kind of hooking the police officers up the police officers beat up without programs now I just mention that you know you have a lot of grief from Columbia and you spent over thirty years in the Manhattan district attorney's office and your father was a police officer in Harlem for for twenty years so I I just got to ask you you know what is your father shared with you about his experience of policing in in New York City well my father it was in a native of New York City grew up in Harlem and and many of his police experiences were in Harlem he's police off when he retired he was a police officer in Harlem so he sort of like the home grown person who kind of comes back and his I think we'll message to me growing up was that your communities have challenges and certainly when he was a police officer in the seventies you know was that there was some real serious crime issues yeah but that the people in those communities are often extremely talented they just need a state opportunity and and not I I just know as I was growing up as a kid we didn't see the the crime in some of the problems in the neighborhoods as you know writing the neighborhood off the of my father is the cop who was there and what they're really saw the says we have to list that those barriers because so many people are so talented and they need the opportunity so that's kind of the way I've always seen it from a child and and so I'm really quite fortunate now to have an opportunity to kind of put that into practice yeah that's great and that that's a great store I wanted to ask you about that if you're just tuning in or on the line I'm with Frederic watts and he is with the police athletic league and he is the executive director of pal anyone to talk to us about the you know all the things they have going on summer opportunities for kids and as you heard they do a lot with young people powers organization there are nonprofit they've been around for one hundred plus years which is pretty incredible so they've been doing some great things and they've got a lot of programs for new Yorkers to explore this summer so you know let's start with the with the sports you got the volleyball tournament and and baseball games talk about those so we have we do have sports programs throughout the year in the summer we focus on softball and we're actually starting a lacrosse program with the NYPD which got interesting new support for a lot of kids in the city and we do a lot of we have summer camps is kind of what we are two key programs in the summer our summer camps that are in all five boroughs for kids in elementary and middle school and we also have what we call place streets which are a more informal drop in kind of neighborhood camp where we use a park or a street cleared out bring in staff and equipment and where that where the kids can just from the neighborhood just drop in on a given time and sort of spend some time in a structured environment and a play street so between our camps and I'll play streets in the the sports the goal of the summer we were pretty busy and we try to keep kids as busy as we can so I know that camps are a big deal for parents in the summer right their kids are out of school we were talking with the food bank and we you know we were kind of talking about the needs you know now that there are young people that are out of school you know how needs at the food bank have increased like basically they they still need to help people not not just in the winter cold months they still have to do their work in the summer months itself I know that a lot of parents our caretakers like to get kids enrolled in day camps and summer camps and they can be challenging so tell us a little bit more about your summer day camps I'm assuming there's a cost involved with that kind of you know paint a picture of of what that looks like okay so we have centers in all five boroughs they could either be in a freestanding building or in a school based site we share space with the school but what our camps are are and foresaw should lead with most importantly their free also offered parent signs up for her his or her child for this can't it's free of charge and they come in first thing they get is breakfast so the camp starts at eight in the morning to get breakfast we sort of assemble and they go through a series of you know activities whether you know recreational activities we try to get him outside whenever possible they go on trips from anything from you know going to van Cortlandt park let's say if they're you know if you were in the Bronx or visiting the statue of liberty or thing so we try to do some local trips and and every once in a while we can take them on a more ambitious tripped up but the focus of the summer camps are both recreational but also educational so we try to each summer there's typically a theme and a part of the country I'm sorry part of the world that the students study and then we have a big fair at the end of the year where the kids sort of display you know what country they learned about may have art projects and so forth associated so it's a very will bust rich summer camp program people comply days a week to get breakfast they get lunch they go on trips it's really quite exciting for the kids so that's a big focus of ours and then of course in our place streets there more strictly recreational we try to get police officers to come help us out we run if if the place streets in a up park we run tournaments they're typically it's a basketball tournament but maybe other sports as well so the place streets very depending on the location and what kids are interested in you know some neighborhood soccer is a big deal some neighborhoods basketball is a big deal so we try to kind of tailored to what the kids would like to do but that's a more casual environment but it's great because kids you know they may be visiting relatives some places so they're only they're here certain times of the week or certain times of the summer so they can just drop into a play street and that's a good way to kind spent some time again in the supervised structured environment is is there any specific age requirement for the kids that are coming to the camps the camp start at kindergarten age and they go up to the eighth grade and again we you know obviously this separated depending on you know that we try to keep the middle schools together their their activities are a little bit different but it really runs the gamut straight up to middle school I should also emphasize in our summer programs that that we have what's called the.
