bogeys on your six, limu. without talking they need customizedor. car insurance from liberty mutual so they only pay for what they need. woooooooooooooo... we are not getting you a helicopter. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ fedr another covid-19 vaccine. today the formula could get the green light as new covid infections climb in the western us foxes jonathan siri has more from atlanta. americans could soon have 1/4 covid vaccine option.
9:14 am
the fda is vaccine advisers meet today to discuss the nova vax formula for people 18 years and older. the drugmaker began developing the two dough series back in 2020, but struggled to ramp up production in a clinical trial. the vaccine was about 90% effective. against mild, moderate or severe covid. what i've seen of the novavax data so far. it's a really impressive protein backseat. the vaccine is already available in more than 40 countries, but it will face competition here in the us about 70% of eligible americans are already fully vaccinated against covid-19, with the majority opting for fighters or modernists formulas, novak says it's shot could eventually play a role as a booster. we've demonstrated that you can boost and get a very good response. both of you boost our own vaccine or if you boost one of the other vaccines. the meeting comes as covid activity improves across the northeast, with new york and massachusetts, reporting a decline in hospitalizations. macron's sub
9:15 am
variants are now fueling a surge of cases in the western u. s. go health experts say most people are not developing severe covid . it's really hard to tease out how much of this are the variants themselves, the type of virus that we're seeing versus the fact that we have just lots of pre existing immunity in our population if the fda authorizes the novavax formula, the cdc will first have to sign off before distribution. in atlanta in serie ktvu, fox two news alright. so with us now to give us some insight is easiest infectious disease expert dr peter chin hung. good morning to you, doctor. morning andrey cdc on monday ramped up its monkeypox travel alert to level two when you hear that, how worried are you to see that move by the cdc? i'm still not super worried that it will really get into the general population. however it's a cautionary measure, and it's really because of two things. the first is that cases continue to rise, but i
9:16 am
must mention that they're not rising a astronomical rates, and it's not really a deadly disease number two is that in some of the contacts, uh, investigated around the world, there were household exposures. they weren't like really very, very common at all. but because there were one or two i think that c d c has upgraded it to an advisory now at at level two, and those are the reasons why, all right, so you know we have covid right now. so you have covid. you have monkeypox. should we be concerned that you have these two viral illnesses floating around. i mean, is it going to be more dangerous for the general public to have both of these happening at the same time? i know because covid precautions trump monkeypox precautions in general for the general population, so monkeypox is really mainly spread in this particular outbreak. by skin to skin contact with open sores. um and you need to be really
9:17 am
intimate with somebody for more than three hours or so. it's much harder to get monkey pox because it's on heavy droplets rather than airborne like covid. so they give you perspective. covid. 15 minutes. monkeypox more oh, got you. alright, fantastic three hours versus 15 minutes. a big difference here so the origin of monkeypox is in africa, and i want to show viewers this map here. the cdc map. that shows countries are affected by the outbreak and you see it right there. but what's surprising is that the virus in many countries, it's in many countries besides africa, which is where it originated. what do you think that is? so they had two reasons. potentially one is that monkey pox has actually been in a low level outside of africa for some time, and it didn't come to attention until these social and sexual networks happened recently with two raves in belgium and spain. the second reason is that somebody traveled from an endemic area and we usually get a couple of cases a year. to see europe and then
9:18 am
happened by chance is to have people spread it around the world. gotcha. alright well, we want to move to this now. noble backs we've been talking to abuse about this since this morning could become 1/4 vaccine option. you know, the question is we already have three vaccines on the market. do we need another vaccine option at this point? we don't really need it from a coverage perspective of population, but novavax is kind of using an old fashioned technique that may appeal to folks who are a little bit consumed and worried about a newfangled dangled m r and d approach, so it's kind of like i we used to using this kind of vaccine from, you know, from shingles vaccine to human popular virus vaccine, you know, so it's tried and true technology, so not mind me appeal, but most importantly, there is going to be there is already a factory in india that can supply lots of people around the world with it. third reason is, people may want to mix and match because it's a completely different technology may give the virus antibodies, um, wider
9:19 am
exposure to the spike protein by giving a different type of a vaccine. okay, so there are a few reasons out there for folks that know about to move to this issue of mass mandates, returning um, alameda county supervisor david jalbert. he blasted the mandate in the sf gate, calling it arbitrary since no other health officer locally is requiring masks. do we actually need them at this point, do you think well, i think it's really, uh, in certain environments as and as a sort of like, um, a temporary pause button measure. i think the reason why people were motivated to do it was really because from a community perspective. hospitalizations are going up. but personally speaking, i don't think they will even get close to where we were in january, for example, to the at ucsf are on 40 patients for hospitals. january 20th 152 , so you know, going up not quite the level we were yet alright, well, either way, folks in alameda county indoors required to wear a mask. doctor
9:20 am
peter chin hung from ucsf. thank you again for joining us this morning, providing valuable insight to us appreciate. thanks, andre. meanwhile research shows that as many as half the patients who contract covid could experience long term lingering symptoms with the cdc calls long covid or post covid conditions. symptoms such as fatigue or difficulty breathing could last six months or longer. one covid patient who caught the virus last september, describes losing her sense of smell and says even when it came back, she faced additional problems. certain things like nail polish coffee. uh, fresh cut grass, kind of like a similar kind of rotten smell to them because they told me that they don't know much about long covid and there's not really much they can do anyways. loss of smell, taste and other senses are classified as neurological symptoms. penn state researchers who compiled the studies say covid survivors will likely need medical care for a variety of psychological and physical ailments. according to data from the cdc. more than 82 million doses of the covid

vaccine have been wasted in the united states since the vaccine was made available in december of 2020 that accounts for more than 11% of the doses distributed by the federal government. data show. cbs and walmart together accounted for at least a quarter of the wasted doses. cbs says it's priority was to accommodate people who didn't have appointments that would often require opening a multi dose vial for a single walk in today's election day in the barrier has big races that we want to tell you about coming up on morning ton to the nine, breaking down the ones that are having the biggest effect on californians. also ahead. we're learning more about the victim in san jose, who was shot and killed while working at a safeway store you'll hear from the man's family when

9:32 am
deterrent to criminal offenders here in san francisco, and he's not attempting to do that at all whatsoever we are getting we're having a search in residential burglaries were we have a massive prices with overdose deaths, and he's not holding any of the perpetrators of these crimes accountable. your frustration. i know it's been a tough couple of years for our city. the pandemic has been devastating for all of us. this recall will not make us safer. let me finish the job you elected me to do and if somebody better comes along you have an election in 2023. now the latest polls in this recall show either a very tight race or boudin failing to keep his seat. both sides will continue their efforts to reach out to voters throughout the day until the polls close at eight o'clock. so the group here also has phone banking going on right now. again. these are the yes on h pro recall supporters here but then chaser boudin, who is defending himself against this recall, says he is going to be going to eight or nine different neighborhoods throughout the day

9:34 am
7% registered republican voters 36% of the vote. he needs a majority 50% plus one to stay. what do you predict? when it comes to the dynamics of this race. well the dynamics have been bad for him. the polls for the last couple months have been terrible for him. it's showing that it's very likely that he will be recalled. they've been evening up in recent days, but you know there's a there's a narrative out there that this is a republican driven recall. the funders. yes there is a lot of republican money that came into it, but republicans because it has 7% of the voters they republicans can't even fill the ballpark, let alone overturn anybody or recall anyone. so this will be he will go down if he goes down at the hands of his fellow democrats, essentially running against himself because there is no battle alternative that voters are going to try to keep out of office. right? well remember governor newsom last year he when he was facing the recall, he you know when, when things voters weren't very enthusiastic about it or didn't take it seriously, he said. oh, my god, you know you don't want
9:35 am

say4 billion deal to buy twitter must lawyers wrote a letter to twitter, saying in his failed to supply data on spam and fake accounts, which could constitute a breach of the agreement. mask has argued that 20% of twitter's 229 million accounts are fake, which is much higher than twitter's claim of less than 5% with us now is business and tech expert shibani joshi. good morning, shibani. hi there. so what about this? um do you think that? um you know, twitter is not going to give in and say okay, yeah, you got us. it's 20% of our users are bots and spam. hi this is a thing that they're
9:45 am
not going to agree on. is it? yeah i mean, salit seems a little bit of a stalling tactic right now. um, and a lot of tech experts and watchers out there, including myself are wondering, is this deal going to happen and our spam bots the scapegoat for elon musk getting out of this $46 billion deal as you and i both know the deal was made back in april and twitter shares were 25% higher and he's funding this deal with a large portion, taking out a loan of tesla shares. and tesla shares are down more than 35% and the only ways that elon musk can get out of this deal south or for a couple of reasons. first he's not gonna be able to get out of it easily. if he wants to get out, he's going to have to pay a billion dollar breakup fee. um he also could get sued by twitter, saying that there was a breach of contract. there was an agreement in place and he does need to go ahead and buy the company. but the one way he can get out of this. sal is by claiming some sort of material adverse effect a change in
9:46 am
business or change in finances, and that's why he's bringing out the spam bots argument because you know, twitter is run like an advertising business. and if you don't know how many users are on there, or a real and how can you sell that information and sell your ads to advertisers? hence you get a business claws out there that could give him a good reason to try and back out of the deal. so spam bots are not just spin bots. in this example. do you think that ellen is saying, man? i should have never gone for this business. it's affected my other core business . why do you think he was doing it to begin with? why did he want twitter? well he wants to wonder for a lot of different reasons. i mean, one. it is a great platform and highly influential. you and i and other people in the political sphere. the journalism fear the media sphere. celebrities out there are using it as a potent way to gain access to audiences that being said twitter compared to other big platforms out there. whether it's instagram facebook
9:47 am
, um and growing platforms like tiktok and snapchat. they have not seen a twitter has not seen the same little level of growth. it's been stalled and its user base stalled in its stock price. and so when you see something like that, you think business opportunity and elon musk season opportunity also to sort of tighten it up and use it as a channel for free flowing communication. we have talked about and he's talked about it being a channel for misinformation. um it getting kicked, kicking president former presidents off bringing them back on. there's lots of angles out there that make this a very potent and attractive social media platform. the challenges the price. now the price is a lot lower than when he put the bid out a couple of months ago, right before i let you go. i want to ask you about apple's worldwide developers conference and we get anything substantial from this yesterday. i know that if i send you a text now, shibani, i can take it back because both of us have iphones.
9:48 am
is there anything else that's significant? that's pretty big to me, sal. i don't know about you. we all have that text, remorse when we send out text messages and wanted to recall them back with the new ios 16 that will be released this fall . you're actually going to be able to do that? there's other customization options a lock screen, so when we are home screen right now doesn't have many ways to make it personalized. you'll be able to do that. there's also some new features coming out on carplay for those of us who use it in, uh, in our cards. no big monumental changes. no vr device had set. that's something that is, um, watchers out there are waiting for but more interoperability and the ability to use this iphone actually, as a camera on your macbook giving you a wider lens more that picture so. some interesting features there that will all be using for certain tech and business experts. giovanni joe's joshi. thank you for joining us. always got good info. thank you.
