>>more businesses are starting to look more normal across the bay area right now restaurants in alameda county are serving diners. indoors for the first time in some 7 months there really a lifeline for restaurant owners a lot of people are excited to get back into that fray to some not so much there's a 25% capacity limit and similar restrictions. >>applied to other businesses things like indoor gyms movie theaters places of worship, yeah, it's still a sign of major progress and to talk about where we go from here doctor dean winslow infectious disease physician at stanford health care. doctor of it sounds like really great news, but we're also being warned about this being really tough winter. when it comes to the flu and coronavirus what's your take. >>yes so i think again it is kind of a mixed bag. you know first all i'd like to just go on the record as saying they're all of us are just so
8:16 pm
proud of way santa clara county in tripoli doctor sara cody unhurt he never responded to the coronavirus pandemic this so i think a lot of the good news that we have locally really can be attributed to the good work that our local public people have done. i do think though that we need to be careful and not make the mistakes that happen. you know some of the other countries are states that had. large resurgences of the stars the 2 infection know when they opened up too quickly so again i think just people should remember that the indoor environment is generally a little bit more risky than certainly being outdoors optimistic though we do this in a measured. that will that will be okay and in addition, you know think good news is that you know hopefully we'll have one or stars the 2 are covid-19 vaccines available by
8:17 pm
the early part of next year so i think cautiously optimistic that things are going the right direction. >>since you brought up santa clara county and doctor cody. what do you make of her decision in part at least to not allow fans at the forty-niners games under the state has given the green light for limited numbers of fans to attend and you mention now outside is safer that of course is outside. why not allow some fans it. >>yeah i saw it again you know i i wasn't aware you know with all of you know data that went into perhaps you know the decision that she and the county made. but you know gain understanding though some of you know sort of super scary especially when the first super spreader events. >>was a related to that large soccer tournament in northern italy. early this year. so i mention that that may have weighed as certainly on doctor
8:18 pm
he said decision to at postponed. you know in attended professional football games as you know the pac 12 in which which says stanford in. we're clear members did make i think the very correct decision to actually postpone. in the basically the playing of the season this year. >>so doctor was low as long as we're talking about we did a i believe it was yesterday about some of the larger theme are upset with the state they're unable to reopen and they plan to fight it legally what's your feeling about those kinds of spaces and how safe they are. >>well you know first of all just you know my my really my heart goes out to people whose jobs have been affected their livelihoods have been affected by so i you know have a lot of empathy i think for people
8:19 pm
that are stuck in this position. however i think you know we really are in a in a very precarious position right now where the last thing we want to do is to open businesses and activities too quickly and have cases surge like they have been other places in the united states. i think this would just be disastrous. again remember that this is a very very lethal disease you know we certainly not want to have many thousands more people die unnecessarily. so again i think right now being conservative and being careful in the way that we open activity is is the right thing to do so certainly support doctor cody and her team in this decision. >>big picture here. >>nationally globally it sure seems like this virus. moves in waves you start with new york and new jersey and then over the summer when folks were inside and really hot areas, florida arizona and the
8:20 pm
like they saw a spike now we're seeing it in parts of the midwest. what's your prediction for lack of a better word on where we're headed as a country as it gets cold in most of the ascent and here in the bay area we can be outside more than others but are you worried about the bay area at all and then the country as a whole. >>yeah so again i think you know you made a number of the really good point said you know kind of in your introduction, but you know clearly the indoor environment where small particle air sauls can remain suspended in the air for 3 to 4 hours or more. you know really is that really high-risk environment and again most of the super spreader events that we've seen throughout the united states have been related to crowded indoor type of events very crowded outdoor events for people or not wearing face coverings consistently and that sort of thing. so you're certainly has said you know
8:21 pm
people spend more time indoors certainly he's going to facilitate transmission of sars kobe to as well as influenza potentially so you know again i think that we really need to be very very careful about how we open up businesses and every opener lives despite how distressing that that may be. >>doctor winslow are being advised to get a flu there's a lot of anticipation about a vaccine. perhaps coming out 2021. and then there's a backlnsh of people who are not confident that it will be safe are you concerned about you know the population, you know really embracing this and feeling comfortable with with a vaccine. >>yeah so again you know that a number of issues i think are at play here so first of all you know just addressing your first point about flu vaccine. you definitely everyone should judge should get the flu vaccine. this year i personally got my actually shot about 3 weeks ago at stanford employee health and
8:22 pm
again the vaccine is safe and effective and so you know there's really no downside to getting it, i'm also cautiously octave optimistic about stars will be to that scene setter in the pipeline. and again my sense and i think i speak for probably most infectious disease specialist that we believe that probably all of these vaccines will be safe. they they may vary to some degree and efficacy and the results of the phase 3. trials really show a staff and i also by the way have a lot of faith in the fda that additional scientists reviewers regulatory specialists that they have we'll do a very careful and thorough job reviewing the safety and efficacy data are these vaccines as those data become available. >>i thank you doctor dean infectious disease specialist at stanford health thanks for joining us. >>all right, we're going take a quick break right no
