7:03 pm
incredible people at our hospitals. this is every parents' worst nightmare. >> so far they have no idea what his motive was stephanie, a fast police response, i understand. >> reporter: there have been multiple agencies out here today from the fbi to the local police departments and the oakland county sheriff right now tonight a lot of questions for this community over were there warning signs about this potential happening we've spoken to a student already who said he didn't go to school today because he was concerned something could happen the under sheriff of oakland county is telling us they can't talk about that. they're investigating everything and they'll give us more information in a couple of hours. when this happened, they said everything was done correctly in
7:04 pm
the school as it should be done in a situation like this there were more than 100 calls to 911 that suspect was taken into custody. they did everything right. that doesn't change the fact that three students were killed today here in michigan the 15-year-old suspect is not talking with investigators we're told the parents also don't want that student to talk with investigators and the parents are hiring an attorney we'll continue to follow that. >> thank you. covid watch. the white house now considering stricter testing requirements and possible self-quarantines for all travelers arriving to the united states. that's new today from the cdc
7:05 pm
director officials searching for what could be america's first case of covid omicron. >> this program allows for increased testing for specific international arrivals, increasing our capacity to identify those with covid-19 on arrival to the united states and enhancing our surveillance for the omicron variant. >> new data shows the covid omicron variant was already in europe days before scientists in south africa were first to identify it. health officials in the netherlands say they identified cases dating back a week and a half brazil and japan the latest nations to confirm omicron cases. researchers have detected the new variant in at least 21 countries, but not yet in the united states. dr. jha, thank you it looks like these south african doctors are the heros. >> they are.
7:06 pm
they have great surveillance and they're open and transparent about it >> i'm told it will be a week or two before we know much more about this what level of efficacy drop would concern you and the scientists and the scientific community enough to require a sort of reformulation of the vaccine? >> that's a really good question i'm hoping that with people who are fully vaccinated and boosted, right now efficacy against delta is probably 90 or 95%. if it drops 10 or 15 points, probably not a big deal. if it drops lower than that, we're going to have to start talking about reformulating the vaccine formula. let's see what the data shows.
7:07 pm
>> as health experts race to better understand the covid omicron variant, a panel of advisors just narrowly recommend merck's covid pill for emergency use. that vote 13-10. if u.s. regulators sign off, it will be the first pill authorized to treat covid and americans could get it by the end of this year merck reports its pill reduces the risk of hospitalization and death by 30% among high risk covid patients the earlier estimate was 50% meg, is this pill effective enough to make a real difference >> that was among the key debates this panel of advisors had today. a large number felt the potential risks of the medicine don't necessarily outweigh the benefits, especially if other treatment options are available. it forces errors that the virus replicates
7:08 pm
that raised theoretical concerns on two fronts, that the drug could cause other variants to arise or could cause cancer or birth defects. many did recommend the drug not be used in pregnancy >> our expectation is from all the data we've seen and all the preclinical work we've done and the broad safety database from the study, there shouldn't be long-term effects. >> while the efficacy of the drug appeared to drop, many panelists who notvoted in favor noted the strong -- the fda could clear the drug within days it's also expected to act soon on pfizer's anti-viral which
7:09 pm
showed 89% protection against severe disease and death earlier this month the government has bought 3 million treatment courses of merck's drug and 10 million of pfizer's, should they be cleared. these drugs are expected to hold up against omicron the federal reserve may have to raise interest rates sooner than expected to try to counter inflation. that's new today from the fed chair powell powell and janet yellen said the united states pandemic recovery remains strong, but they say covid omicron could pose new economic challenges in the months ahead. >> the recent rise in covid-19 cases and the emergence of the omicron variant pose downside risks to the employment and economic activity and increased uncertainty for inflation. greater concerns about the virus could reduce people's willingness to work in person,
7:10 pm
which would slow progress in the labor market and intensify supply chain disruptions. >> none of that sat well on wall street the dow plummeted down more than 650. andrew a lot of talk about inflation and the fed cutting back economic support. >> this is the first time we have heard jerome powell talk about inflation in a meaningful way. clearly we are at a point where we have real supply chain issues that persist and may get worse, depending on how this pandemic plays out. now this new variant could create unemployment issues, which means higher wages you could look at that as a good sign in certain cases, but again will only add to inflation worries. effectively he is saying this is real and we are going to have to taper sooner and quicker perhaps than some had expected.
7:11 pm
>> everybody had been talking about inflation as transitory, short lived. but today powell said it's time to remove the word transitory when talking about inflation prices are going to remain higher for a while, is that what he's saying? >> he's saying the supply chain issues are not going away any time soon. the truth is that wages, which actually have increased, are something that don't change. once wages go up, they stay there. that means we are going to be paying more on one end of it there's a benefit on the other end, which is that wages are higher, but if inflation is higher than the wages, it doesn't make up for it. >> how important is the november jobs number going to be for the market >> important but less so the more important number is what the world looks like and the employment picture looks like a month from now and a month after that that's really going to be the sign for where we are in this economy and effectively how much
7:12 pm

7:16 pm
police >> it felt like for years we never saw defendants testifying in their own defense and now recently we have kim potter, we're told, will testify in her own defense smart move or no >> we talk about this every time here i think it's essential. the reason why we're seeing it so much is because any time you have a case involving someone's death and the person who caused it is saying i didn't mean for this to happen, i think they generally have to take the stand and explain that to the jury. >> if you're the defense, i'm guessing you're wanting the jury to say, she feels awful about this, she didn't mean to do it. >> that's it, shep it's the same argument we have when we talk about qualified imm immunity that is that police officer is a hard job and they sometimes make mistakes but it doesn't mean
