screen or go to less than a month after popping up on the cdc radar, the omicron variant is fueling a new wave of covered cases many people report symptoms a number of those who do is overwhelmingly hospitals that are already struggling with staffing shortages related to the pandemic perjuring snow fox news medical contributor janette nesheiwat family and emergency medicine doctor. the proposal is to cut the corn team improve her health workers who come down covid so they can get back into action sooner what you think about that proposal? >> a giant merry christmas. it makes sense if such a shortage of healthcare workers in her country right now. especially in new york city with such a high level of cases with omicron spreading so easily from person-to-person.
3:33 pm
i have even had some of my own colleagues can become ill with omicron. they make sense if you are feeling much better, have no symptoms and test negative, fewer negative after five days and make sense to go back into the workforce. but we have to be careful. if you are still having symptoms she could potentially be spreading to others and that is the problem, jon, we have such a lack of testing it so important to make sure it that issue under control before we can accommodate sending healthcare workers back into the workforce. >> you are saying if you're not feeling symptoms of covid you are not generally able to spread the virus? >> that's a great question you can spread the virus by the are symptomatic or not. that is the key testing negative. we have two different types of just the rapid antigen testing results within the hour then there's the pc are the most accurate nasal swab that i use
3:34 pm
for my patients. that takes several days for the results to come back with such a high volume of patients requiring tests and the labs get backed up. if we can get a good amount of testing available to everyone, not just healthcare workers and you test negative not only can healthcare workers go back to work but i think this should could be asked applicable to others as well. >> me and other vaccines on the market that are effective against covid now there are pills coming out. what is the difference between how they work? >> sure, their two antivirals that were just approved by the fda for emergency use authorization. these are really great medicines. it's 90% effective in reducing the chance of death and hospitalization. it is about 30 -- 50% effective. want to use it when it's the most effective.
3:35 pm
the way they work these antiviral pills stop the virus from replicating inhibit an enzyme blocks that enzyme the virus cannot replicate. the key is, jon, we want to get this medicine started as soon as possible, within 72 hours is the best. but you can prolong up to five days. the sooner you start the medicine the more effective it will be. this is important to help reduce the transmission of virus from one person to another fee can get them tested get them on this medicine. we have such a shortage the medicine is probably going to first be reserved for those who are at high risk of severe complications of covid. >> the vaccine helps the body actually fight off the virus, these medicines, pills you're talking about inhibit the ability of the virus to reproduce within the body.
3:36 pm
>> that is rights. the vaccines help prevent serious illness complications hospitalization speeding still pick up covid being vaccinated for most people for most of my patients that they do pick up covid their symptoms are very mild and for those who had their third dose they have no symptoms at all. they are surprised to learn they test positive in the first place. it's great we have this new therapeutics on the market but of course prevention is always better. we want to make sure he knew everything in our power to prevent any complications picking up the virus in the first place. jon: the omicron variant seems to have flattened out. it caused a great increase in the number of cases in this country. but that increase kind of plateaued last week. the thinking is the virus might be ready to take a down swing, it does not seem likely to you? >> absolutely perfect take a
