TONIGHT, AS COVID CASES CLIMB AND VACCINATION NUMBERS FALL, THE NATION’S LARGEST COUNTY, LOS ANGELES, IS TURNING BACK THE PANDEMIC CLOCK ISSUING A NEW INDOOR MASK MANDATE FOR PUBLIC SPACES. WORRIES INTENSIFYING THIS EVENING OVER MANY STATES. Over A NEW COVID WAVE BREAKING AGAINST A WALL OF VACCINE HESITANCY., THE DELTA VARIANT SPREADING FAR MORE QUICKLY THAN ANYTHING WE’VE SEEN HERE, AS WE ALSO LEARN TONIGHT, IT WILL LIKELY BE EARLY NEXT YEAR BEFORE THE FDA EXPECTS TO APPROVE VACCINES FOR CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN 12.

. My CONVERSATION WITH THE HEAD OF THE CDC IN JUST A MOMENT. gtgtgt, BUT FIRST HERE IS MIGUEL ALMAGUER, WITH LATE DEVELOPMENTS. gtgt Reporter TONIGHT, LOS ANGELES, THE NATION’S LARGEST COUNTY, TAKING A STEP BACK REQUIRING MASKS INDOORS EVEN FOR THE VACCINATED EFFECTIVE SUNDAY IMPACTING 10 MILLION PEOPLE HERE And BREAKING WITH CDC GUIDANCE, IT’S, A CLEAR SIGNAL: CONCERN IS GROWING OVER THE HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS DELTA VARIANT. MEANTIME FOR SOME OF THE 48 MILLION CHILDREN UNDER 12 AND THEIR PARENTS WHO WERE HOPING TO GET THEM VACCINATED. This FALL A LONGER WAIT.. The FDA WILL NOW REVIEW SEVERAL ADDITIONAL MONTHS OF SAFETY DATA, MEANING A VACCINE FOR KIDS WON’T LIKELY BE AVAILABLE UNTIL EARLY NEXT YEAR. gtgt. It MAKES IT A VERY STRESSFUL TIME TO BE A PARENT, AN EDUCATOR AND A CHILD THAT ALL SCHOOLS SHOULD HAVE VERY STRONG CONTINGENCY PLANS., ONE OF THE METRICS, BY WHICH WE COULD GO BACK TO VIRTUAL LEARNING.. What WILL WE DO TO KEEP CHILDREN AND STAFF SAFE, gtgt Reporter, WHILE MORE THAN FOUR MILLION CHILDREN HAVE CONTRACTED COVID LESS THAN 2 HAVE BEEN HOSPITALIZED AND LESS ONLY A SMALL FRACTION HAVE DIED.. But NOW THE NATION IS BRACING FOR A NEW WAVE OF INFECTIONS AS EXPERTS FEAR, A NEW WAVE OF COVID CASES IS JUST BEGINNING TO GRIP. The COUNTRY. gtgt WE’VE EXCEEDED LAST YEAR’S PEAK. gtgt Reporter, WHILE OUTBREAKS WERE EXPECTED IN UNVACCINATED POCKETS OF THE NATION, 98 MILLION ARE STILL NOT INOCULATED.. 40 STATES ARE SEEING A RISE IN INFECTIONS. TONIGHT AT YANKEE STADIUM, POSITIVE COVID TESTS HAVE FORCED THE GAME AGAINST THE RED SOX TO BE POSTPONED.

. The DELTA VARIANT, A SERIOUS RISK. gtgt IT’S, GOING TO FIND THOSE POCKETS IN EACH COMMUNITY WHERE PEOPLE AREN’T VACCINATED AND IT’S GOING TO DO A LOT OF DAMAGE. gtgt Reporter TONIGHT THAT DAMAGE BEING DONE. AND FOR THE UNVACCINATED, INCLUDING THE YOUNGEST AMERICANS. The WORST MAY STILL BE TO COME. MIGUEL ALMAGUER NBC NEWS. gtgt, AND WITH ALL THAT IN MIND, I SPOKE JUST A SHORT TIME AGO WITH DR. ROCHELLE WALENSKY, THE DIRECTOR OF THE CDC. DR. WALENSKY. Thank YOU FOR JOINING US. WE’VE GOT THE DELTA VARIANT. WE’VE GOT RISING. Infections. WE’VE GOT DROPPING VACCINATION RATES.. Is THIS BECOMING A WORST CASE SCENARIO gtgt? Unfortunately, NO I THINK THINGS CAN STILL GET WORSE, WHICH IS WHY WE’RE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN NOW TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN. gtgt, BUT IT IS STARTING TO LOOK LIKE YOU’RE HITTING A BRICK WALL WHEN IT COMES TO VACCINATIONS.. Have YOU IDENTIFIED WHY THOSE NUMBERS ARE DROPPING SO QUICKLY gtgt? We KNEW THAT THIS WAS GOING TO BE HARDER AS TIME AS TIME WENT. On. PLACES WITH LOW RATES OF VACCINATION ARE ACTUALLY SEEING MORE DISEASE AND WE’RE REALLY TRYING TO GO THERE NOW TO SAY. Please WE DON’T WANT TO HIT THAT WORST CASE. Scenario. gtgt, YOU HAVE BEEN VERY BULLISH ON THE IDEA OF GETTING KIDS BACK IN SCHOOL FOR THE FALL., WATCHING WHAT THIS DELTA VARIANT IS DOING RIGHT NOW, AND THE KNOWLEDGE NOW THAT IT COULD BE WINTERTIME NEXT YEAR BEFORE YOUNGER KIDS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR A VACCINE.

Is THERE ANY CONSIDERATION, ANY SCENARIO IN WHICH YOU MIGHT WANT TO REVERSE YOURSELF ON REOPENING SCHOOLS gtgt, I REMAIN EMPHATIC THAT OUR SCHOOLS NEED TO OPEN IN THE FALL.. They NEED TO OPEN FOR FALL IN PERSON LEARNING.. We KNOW HOW TO KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE. IF THEY’RE ELIGIBLE FOR VACCINATION. We CAN KEEP THEM SAFE BY BEING VACCINATED.. If THEY’RE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR VACCINATION, WE CAN KEEP THEM SAFE IN TWO IMPORTANT WAYS. SURROUND THEM WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE VACCINATED AND WHEN THEY GO TO SCHOOL. Put A MASK: ON. gtgt. We HEAR A LOT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE PARTIALLY VACCINATED.. If YOU HAVEN’T GOTTEN YOUR SECOND SHOT, YOUR FOLLOW UP, SHOT OF THE PFIZER OR MODERNA. Are YOU AT RISK FROM THE DELTA VARIANT AT GREATER RISK gtgt WITH THE DELTA VARIANT? You REALLY DO NEED YOUR SECOND SHOT IN ORDER TO BE BETTER PROTECTED.. The PFIZER MODERNA VACCINES HAVE A DOSING SCHEDULE OF THREE WEEKS AND FOUR WEEKS., BUT IF YOU MISSED THAT DOSING SCHEDULE, THERE IS NO BAD TIME TO GET YOUR SECOND SHOT. gtgt. Is IT TIME TO CONSIDER OR OFFER MORE CONSIDERATION TO MASKING UP EVEN VACCINATED PEOPLE IN INDOOR SETTINGS gtgt THESE VACCINES WORK.? They GENERALLY WORK AGAINST THE DELTA VARIANT IN PREVENTING SEVERE HOSPITALIZATION AND DEATH. IN TERMS OF MASKING THOSE ARE GOING TO BE PERSONAL DECISIONS AS YOU ENGAGE OUTSIDE IN OTHER ACTIVITIES. gtgt. The CDC IS NOT RECOMMENDING PEOPLE WHO ARE FULLY VACCINATED, WEAR MASKS. gtgt. We ARE NOT., ONE ACTUAL EXCEPTION TO THAT THAT I WANT TO BE CLEAR.

About. IF YOU ARE IMMUNOSUPPRESSED THOSE PEOPLE WE’VE ALWAYS SAID. Please CONTINUE TO WEAR A MASK AND CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR. gtgt. What LEVEL OF CONCERN ARE YOU AT RIGHT NOW gtgt? I DON’T LIKE TO SEE OUR CASES RISING.. We HAVEN’T SEEN THIS AMOUNT OF CASES FOR MONTHS. I’M, VERY CONCERNED., gtgt PART OF MY CONVERSATION WITH DR. WALENSKY.. Those FEARS HAVE BECOME A REALITY FOR MANY HOSPITALS IN THE COUNTRY WHERE THE PANDEMIC HAS TAKEN HOLD AGAIN AND VACCINES SIT. Unused. GABE GUTIERREZ WENT INSIDE ONE OF THEM. gtgt Reporter IN LITTLE ROCK ARKANSAS. You NOT ONLY HEAR BUT SEE THE SURGE. gtgt HIT THE FLOOR RUNNING AND ALL OF US ARE WORKING EXTRA HOURS., gtgt Reporter. This IS ONE OF FOUR COVID UNITS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS FOR MEDICAL SCIENCES. NURSE MARY ELLIS LUZ IS EXHAUSTED. gtgt. These PATIENTS ARE DEFINITELY SICKER. WE’RE, SEEING REALLY REALLY SICK, PATIENTS., gtgt AND YOUNGER ONES, 20 TO 40 YEARS OLD, AS WELL AS PREGNANT WOMEN.. Overall ARKANSAS HAS SEEN A 130 JUMP IN CASES OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS. THEY’RE, STORING WHEELCHAIRS AND OTHER EQUIPMENT IN THE HALLWAYS, BECAUSE THERE IS JUST NOWHERE ELSE TO PUT THEM. EVERY SINGLE ROOM IN THIS HOSPITAL IS FULL. EVERY SINGLE ONE, EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE.. They PLAN ON BRINGING IN SOMEONE HERE FROM THE E.R. ANY MINUTE, NOW. gtgt I’M, VERY WORRIED ABOUT BACK TO SCHOOL. I’M VERY CONCERNED ABOUT CONTINUING STRAIN ON OUR HEALTH CARE SYSTEM. gtgt. How MUCH DOES IT FRUSTRATE YOU THAT THE VACCINATION ISSUE HAS BECOME POLITICIZED, gtgt, IT’S DISHEARTENING.

gtgt Reporter AT ONE OF THE HOSPITAL’S VACCINE CLINICS? Nearby 600 DOSES ARE AVAILABLE EACH DAY. TODAY, JUST 19 PEOPLE MADE APPOINTMENTS.. The OVERALL VACCINATION RATE HERE IS ONLY ABOUT 35.. Were YOU SKEPTICAL OF GETTING THE VACCINE gtgt YES. gtgt Reporter? Why IS THAT gtgt? Because IT WAS, IT WAS NOT PROVEN. Yet. gtgt, Reporter TATE EZI AND HIS WIFE DID NOT GET THE SHOT.. In APRIL, FOUR OF THEIR FIVE KIDS TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID.. Tate WAS HOSPITALIZED.. So WAS HIS WIFE. gtgt, JUST KIND OF TURNED OUR WORLD UPSIDE DOWN. gtgt Reporter THEY TEXTED EACH OTHER FROM SEPARATE ROOMS. Until SHE WAS PLACED ON A VENTILATOR ALL THE MORE TERRIFYING BECAUSE SHE WAS PREGNANT. gtgt, WE LOST THE BABY.. You KNOW AT SOME POINT. Her OXYGEN HAD JUST GOT TOO LOW. gtgt Reporter HIS WIFE SURVIVED AND IS NOW IN REHAB. TO HIM. Covid IS FAR FROM OVER. gtgt. I WANT OTHER PEOPLE TO HEAR MY STORY, SO MAYBE THEY WILL THINK TWICE ABOUT NOT GETTING VACCINATED. gtgt GABE. I KNOW YOU’VE GONE INSIDE A LOT OF HOSPITALS THROUGHOUT THIS PANDEMIC.. What STRUCK YOU TODAY, gtgt WELL LESTER, NEARLY EVERYONE WHO IS REALLY SICK IN THIS HOSPITAL CHOSE NOT TO GET VACCINATED. BEFORE IT SEEMED LIKE. We DIDN’T REALLY HAVE A CHOICE WHEN IT CAME TO THE CORONAVIRUS.. Now, BY GETTING VACCINATED, WE DO. gtgt ALL RIGHT GABE GUTIERREZ THANK YOU. gtgtgt IN JUST 60 SECONDS.

I’VE, ALWAYS LIVED PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK., AND SO IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE HELPFUL AND KEEP US GOING.. Gtgt Reporter THE CHILD TAX CREDIT PAYMENTS BEGAN SHOWING UP IN CHECKING ACCOUNTS TODAY. UP TO 300 A MONTH FOR EACH CHILD 5 AND UNDER. 250. Each MONTH FOR CHILDREN 6 TO 17., IT APPLIES TO SINGLE PARENTS EARNING AS MUCH AS 112000 A YEAR AND COUPLES MAKING UP TO 150000. FAMILIES THAT DON’T MAKE ENOUGH TO PAY. Taxes CAN REGISTER TO RECEIVE THEIR CHECK. gtgt. This IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO AND IT’S A SMART THING TO DO. gtgt Reporter THE NEW PROGRAM EXPANDS ON THE EXISTING CHILD TAX CREDIT AND WAS ADDED AS PART OF THE COVID RELIEF PACKAGE. Earlier THIS YEAR., SOME REPUBLICANS HAVE CRITICIZED THE PROGRAM AS WELFARE BECAUSE IT REMOVES WORK REQUIREMENTS TO RECEIVE THE MONEY. SASHA SAYS SHE HOPES THEY MAKE THE ONE YEAR PROGRAM. Permanent. gtgt WE’VE GOT BILLIONAIRES GOING TO SPACE, BUT WE STILL HAVE PEOPLE DOWN HERE TRYING TO MAKE ENDS. Meet. gtgt Reporter.
