REDUCTION FRIDAY AND THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT WEEKEND. JENNIFER: WE HAVE SEEN AN INCREASE IN COVID CASES IN THE COUNTRY. INCLUDING RIGHT HERE IN MARYLAND. BUT ARE WE TECHNICALLY SLLTI IN A PANDEMY? WITH US LIVE TOMORROW, DR. CHRISTOPHER THOMPS, LOCATED IN BIOLOGY AT LOYOLA UNIVERSITY. THANK YOU FOR F, FOR JOINING TOMORROW. >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. JENNIFER: THAT IS THE QUESTION. HAVE WE STILL REACHED THE ENDMIC PHASE? >> SO IT IS A DIFFICULT QUESTION TO ANSWER. SO, YOU KNOW, I LEARN IN MY CROBIOLOGY, AND THE DEFINITION OF MICROBIOLOGY – OR PANDEMY IN CLASS, WE ARE HIGHER THAN NORMAL EVENTS ON LTMUIPLE CONTINENTS. SO, YES, WE ARE STILL IN A PANDEMY. FROM A PUBLIC HEALTH POINT, BUT WE ARE APPROACHING THE TIME WE SHOULD LEARN TO DEAL WITH IT. I DON’T BELIEVE, WE ARE COMPLETELY THERE STILL, AND THAT IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK, EEMNDIC MEANS. IT WILL BE FOREVER. I DON’T THINK WE ARE STILL THERE, AS WE SEE MORE OVERLOADS. DON’T LIKE TO GET THIS SEASONAL ACCESS, AS WE HAVE EXPECTED. BUT I AM THINKING TO GO AGAINST IT. JENNIF: IS WHY DO WE THINK WE SEE SURNLS? WE SEE COVID CASES IN PEOPLE WHO HAVE RECEIVED THE VACCINE AND THEY HAVE BEEN BOTEOSD. >> THERE ARE MANY REASONS FOR THIS TO HAPPEN, I THINK. ONE, WE HAVE ROLLED BACK THE COVID PROTECTIONS THAT WE KNOW ARE WORKING TO MASK THE SOCIAL DISTANCE. WE ARE TRYING THE TWO RURN FOR A SEMBLANCE OF NORMALCY. SO YOU WILL SEE MORE TRANSMISSION BECAUSE OF IT. THEN WE HAVE VARIANTS THAT COME ABOUT THE MORE TRANSFERABLE. LUCKILY, IT DOESN’T LIKE TO CAUSE MORE SERIOUS DISEASES AT THAT POINT, BUT WE HAVE MORE OF THEM IN THE POPULATION, SO OF COURSE MORE PEOPLE GET SICK. THIS IMMUNITY, I WON FROM THE ORIGINAL VACCINATIONS, SO WHEN PEOPLE GET BOOSD, WE ARE ABLE TO OVERCOME IT. BUT IT IS A FORM OF A PERFECT STORM OF THINGS RIGHT NOW. JENNIFER: YOU CANNOT KNOW IF THIS OR HAVE AN ANSWER TO THIS, BUT IS THERE ANYTHING IN THE CTFA THAT MAY BE MORE TESTS BECAUSE THEY SUFFER FROM ALLERGY AND FIND OUT THAT I AM ACTUALLY COVID? >> YOU CAN BE. ON THE BACK, PEOPLE ARE GEN TESTING AT HOME, SO THEY MAY NOT REGISTER IN THE SAME WAY. I TNKHI LOOKING AT THE POSITIVITY RATE IS A REALLY HARD METRIC TO LOOK AT. WHAT I SEE IS THE HOSPITAL NUMBERS, AND SORRY IT IS ALSO BY WRITING UP. SO WE REALLY MUST FOCUS ON KEEPING EVERNEYO HEALTHY. JENNIFER: BOTH PFIZER AND MODERNA HAVE SUBMITTED VACCINES FOR CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS TO THE FDA. WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT IT? >> YES, US PFIZER Did it a while ago. AND THEN THEY ACTUALLY DECIDED TO GO WITH A THREE-DOSAGE CURE II INSTEAD OF A TWO-DOSAGE, WHICH IS REALLY COMMON WITH CHILDREN. YOU KNOW OUR IMMUNE SYSTEMS DEVELOP WHEN WE ARE THE AGE SO WE CAN USE A FEW DIFFERENT SHOTS. WE ALL KNOW AS PARENTS WHO HAVE TAKEN OUR CHILDREN EVERY YEAR IN SEVEN OR EIGHT DIFFERENT PICTURES. SO THEY HAVE DECIDED TO GO TO THE THREE-DOSE REGIME. THIS DATA MUST BE IN THIS MONTH. BUT MODERN ISOI GNG WITH A LITTLE HIGHER DOSAGE, AND THEY HAVE GOED WITH A TWO-DOSAGE CURE. AND IT LIKES REALLY PROMISING. SOOR FAGES 6 MONTHS TO 2, IT SEEMS TO BE 51% EFFICIENT. AND FOR OERLD CHILDREN, IT’S ABOUT 31%. SO DATA IS ENCOURAGING. YOU KNOW, BUT WE WILL SEE WHAT THE FDA SAYS ABOUT SAFETY THEN EFFICIENCY. >> AND THERE WAS NO DELAY TO HAVE CHILDREN OVER, YOU KNOW, 12 AND TO 17 WITH THE VACCINE SO WHAT DO WE EXPECT WHEN IT COMES TO CHILDREN UNDER 5? >> YES, SO, YOU KNOW, CHILDREN UNDER 5 ARE NOT POSTED. THERE ARE SØRLLY PEOPLE OVER 60 YEARS OLD. SO THEY DO NOT HAVE THE SAME VESER INFECTION. THERE IS NOT THE BIG KISS OHR RUSH. WHEN WE GET YOUNG AND YOUNGER, PEOPLE BECAME NOT SO SICK. BUT THERE MAY BE HARMFUL DISIFICATIONS. WE ARE CONCERNED. WE ARE SET AS SOON AS SOON THIS IS APPROVED, THE EXPIRATION SHOULD BE HAPPY AND QUICK. >> ONLY THIS WEEK THE FDA APPROVES BELT CIVIL FOR CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS 4 WEEKS OLD, AS LONG AS THEY ARE 7 POUNDS TO GET THE INJECTION. THESE EARS REALLY ONLY FOR THE SICKEST CHILDREN IN HOSPITALS. >> ABSOLUTELY. YOU KNOW, AND THIS IS THE BIGGEST CHANGE WE HAVE SEEN IN THE PANDEMY IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, IS ANOTHER TNHA VACCINATION, WE ALL – SO-, WHICH ARE PREVENTIVE, WE OF COURSE HAVE BETTER TREATMENTS. MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES, REMDESIVIR AND WE GET DATA THAT IT IS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE FOR ALL THE DIFFERENT SUBPOPULATIONS THAT MAY BE SUFFERED BY THE DISEASE. JENNIFER: DR. THOMPSON, THANK YOU FOR COLLECTING U

Vice President Kamala Harris tested negative for COVID-19 on Monday, six days after she tested positive for the virus, and has been approved to return to the White House on Tuesday. Related video above: With COVID-19 cases on the rise, is is we past the pandemic? Harris’s press secretary Kirsten Allen said Harris, who was prescribed the antiviral drug Paxlovid last week, was negative on a rapid antigen test. Allen said Harris would continue to wear a “well-fitting mask while being around others” in accordance with guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention until her 10th day after her positive test. CDC guidance allows people to leave isolation on the sixth day after testing positive, as long as they wear a mask around others. The White House violates these guidelines and requires a negative quick test before people who have been infected are allowed to return to the complex.
