>> to protect yourself against the, the cdc recommends the same strategies we used to protect ourselves against earlier versions of the coronavirus. physical distancing and wearing masks in public indoor settings especially in communities with high transmission rates. health experts also recommend vaccination and boosters for those eligible. >> the new antiviral drugs coming out for sure be able to combat this variant because of the way they are designed. i think the vaccines will work but will they work less less@moderna is out there creating a booster. >> in addition to a new booster targeting this, maternal is testing the ability of its current covid vaccine this the new variance. it's also looking at whether an increase dose of existing booster shots offer more protection. jon: thank you.

that's the minimum everyone should be doing. we've always talked about -- i think it's a patriotic responsibility. >> the president made the decision to shut down travel from south africa and seven other countries out of abundance of caution after u.s. health officials about half past the variant is spreading and whether vaccines are effective against it. restrictions were announced quickly but they don't take effect until monday and some medical experts save they could lessen their benefit. white house officials that the president was brief today from nantucket where he's spending thanksgiving. he was seen on camera walking around clothing shops downtown with his mask down in a store that requires face coverings. the development surrounding the variant are taking the spotlight off of holiday sales especially department a record price despite high inflation but the president tried to call concerned about high gas prices tweeting this week we launched a
major effort to moderate the price of oil and its reach in your corner gas station, it will take time but you should see the price of gas dropped you fill up your tank. 50 million barrels of oil released in the nations stockpile last week, critics said there might not be much of an impact the ftc is investigating potential price gouging. the president said despite wholesale prices of gas probably the last few weeks, it's remaining the same and companies, he's calling unacceptable and one thing he's working to address. jon: thank you. fisher joins us now, certified in internal medicine. doctor fisher, we hear this variant is very contagious but maybe not as debilitating as
other forms of the virus? >> it seems like it is more transmissible on over 30 mutations on the spike protein but we don't know for sure so we have to be careful about making conclusions. we are definitely concerned, we have heightened awareness. we need to be proactive to at least mitigate the search. jon: the cdc is saying no cases identified in the u.s. yet but given the interconnectedness of this globe we are sharing, would you be surprised if we don't see another case in the next day or two? >> i'm sure we will say cases. there cases here and there so we don't have confirmed cases yet but here in the u.s. we also don't have the best test is to see what kind of various we have. israel, belgium, germany, italy in a case like today in south
africa and atlanta and new jersey, we need to be careful right now and be proactive and act as if we are to have it. jon: the president is think people not vaccinated should get the vaccinations. those eligible for boosters should get them, is that the best course of action your view? >> absolutely, best course of action and the only containment strategy proven to work the best even if there are mutations, knowing you have antibodies in some immunity from the vaccine that's been proven to work against the delta variant, that would put you in a better position if you're vaccinated and have a booster if eligible as opposed to being out there with poor immunity unvaccinated, i agree. jon: let me read from a statement moderna about the testing it has underway,
recently described variance including the delta variant believed to increase transmissibility and mutations in the delta variant believed to promote immunity from a booster dose of an authorized vaccine represents the only currently available strategy for boosting waning immunity, as i suggest the shots people started getting in the spring are starting to fail already? >> we do believe they are starting to wane but all the vaccines all of our lives, measles, mumps, rubella, many vaccines do require this, it's just part of the vaccine climate so i do believe it is likely over time evidence supports vaccinations will way and they are recommended. of people are frightened, i want
everybody concerned but not to panic. just a different set but we know what to do now. we are in a better position now than at the beginning of the pandemic. we are already testing against three forces of the variant. i think within 100 days they are ready. i want people to be frightened but definitely take it seriously. when a mask endorsed and people unvaccinated from dumping shoulder to shoulder at events or in crowded places. >> let's look at the numbers, the percentage of the u.s. population has been fully vaccinated, right now 59.1% and if you factor in those over the age of 18, it goes up to almost 71%. the percentage of the population eligible for boosters that has received a, about 19.1% and that
number grows up to 20.5 when you factor in those over the age of 18. looking at the numbers as a physician, what you say? are the numbers good, are they lackluster, how would you characterize that kind of vaccination rate? >> i hate to be unappreciative that i will tell you when i first read and saw the research how safe the vaccines are really, i was thrilled and thought everyone would run out and get them. i am disappointed we haven't reached those numbers however, i am happy we have the numbers we have we are still other encouraging people and educating people. five to 11 are now eligible in percentage of people vaccinated in the past couple weeks, i am hoping for those whose eyes have not been open, the new variant will open their eyes and they were get vaccinated especially
during the holidays and maintain safe behavior. jon: for about the drugs coming out like a pill that could prevent covid, is going to encourage people maybe those hesitant to get a job might be willing to take the pill? >> the thing about the pill, they don't prevent infection, they are great if you've already been infected especially if you catch symptoms early on, you know the work pill according to the data to reduce hospitalization and by 50% and even pfizer has a drug coming out that may reduce hospitalizations and death mark but they do not prevent infection. the vaccinations are the most effective tool we have to prevent covid infections. jon: once again, he would say get the shot. >> that is what i am saying.

that means americans are paying more for prices at the supermarket and when i talk to people traveling across very, they care about the prices at the supermarket, not the prices have the stock market. i hope president biden will understand the effects inflation is unreal americans. there wages are decreased according to the congressional budget office, wages are decreased because of skyrocketing inflation. wage increase doesn't even keep up with normal inflation they are experiencing right now this is a serious council of economic advisors things are looking pretty good. >> we have a very strong ongoing economic recovery we see the job market, and paychecks in consumer demand. i mentioned earlier talking about energy must partly the policy out of the white house.

american workers for the job some of right the what happens to the people were u.s. citizens down at the lower rungs of the economic ladder, what happens to them when they start competing with them about work? >> exactly. 1.4 million illegals across the southern border, joe biden took over as president and when the illegals enter into the country illegally, what does it do? it drives down the wages, working-class americans just trying to make it so that will only lower their wages where they have less money to put food on the table" on the back and gas in their cars, unacceptable but these are the policies of a joe biden america. jon: it does seemed like the vice president who's been charged with fixing the border would want to pay some attention. jason smith, thank you.
