VP Harris tests negative for COVID-19 after taking antiviral pill

Vice President Harris tested negative for COVID-19 after taking an antiviral pill



FRIDAY REPRODUCTION AND BEGINNING OF THE NEXT WEEKEND. JENNIFER: WE HAVE SEEN AN INCREASE OF COVID CASES Nationwide. INCLUDING HERE IN MARYLAND. BUT ARE WE TECHNICALLY IN A PANDEMIC? GATHER US LIVE TODAY IN THE MORNING, DR. CHRISTOPHER THOMPS, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF BIOLOGY AT LOYOLA UNIVERSITY. THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING THIS MORNING. >> THANK YOU FOR ME. JENNIFER: THIS IS THE QUESTION. HAVE WE STILL REACHED THE ENDEMIC PHASE? >> SO IT IS A DIFFICULT QUESTION YOU MUST ANSWER. WELL, YOU KNOW, I TEACH MICROBIOLOGY AND THE DEFINITION OF MICROBIOLOGY – OR THE CLASSROOM IS HIGHER THAN REGULAR RESIDENTS. SO, YES, WE ARE STILL IN A PANDEMIC. FROM PUBLIC HEALTH, EVEN THOUGH WE ARE APPROACHING THE TIME WE WILL HAVE TO LEARN TO LEARN TO DEAL. I DON’T THINK WE ARE ENOUGH THERE STILL, AND THIS IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE MEAN. IT WILL BE AROUND FOREVER. I DON’T THINK WE ARE ENOUGH STILL THERE, AS WE SEE MORE INCREASES. SIT DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS KIND SEASONAL APPROACH THAT WE WILL WAIT FOR. BUT I AM THINKING OF TROUBLED TO THIS. JENNIFE: WHY DO WE THINK WE SEE SURNLS? WE SEE CASES OF COMMUNITY IN PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE VACCINE AND HAVE PROVIDED BOTEOSD. >> THERE ARE MANY REASONS THAT THIS HAPPENS, I THINK. FIRST, WE HAVE SUPPRESSED THE PROTECTIVE CONCERNS ABOUT THE SOCIETY WE KNOW WHICH WORK TO MASK, THE SOCIAL DISTANCE. WE TRY TO RUN IN A SIMILARITY OF NORMALITY. THIS IS HOW YOU WILL SEE MORE TRANSMISSION BECAUSE OF THIS. THEN WE HAVE VARIATIONS THAT MAKE AROUND THIS IS MORE TRANSMISSIVE. LUCKILY, IT DOESN’T SEEM TO CAUSE MORE DISEASE AT THIS POINT, BUT WE HAVE MORE THAN THESE IN THE POPULATION, SO, SO. I WANT THIS IMMUNITY FROM THE ORIGINAL VACCINATIONS SO THAT PEOPLE HUMANIZE IT, WE CAN OVERCOME IT. BUT IT’S SOMETHING PERFECT STORM IMMEDIATELY NOW. JENNIFER: YOU MAY NOT KNOW THIS OR HAVE AN ANSWER TO IT, BUT IS THERE SOMETHING AT THE CTFA THAT MAY MAKE MORE A PEOPLE BECAUSE YOU ARE OLD? >> THIS IS KLDOU. FROM THE DETAILED SIDE, PEOPLE DO TESTS AT HOME, SO THEY MAY NOT REPORT IN THE SAME WAY. THE LOOK AT THE PERCENTAGE POSITIVE IS REAL, IT IS A REALLY DIFFICULT MEASUREMENT. WHAT I AM WATCHING ARE THE NUMBER OF HOSPITALS AND THEY ARE UNFORTUNATELY CRAWLING AS WELL. SO WE REALLY NEED TO RELIABLE TO MAINTAIN ALL HEALTH. JENNIFER: BOTH PFIZER AND MODERNA HAVE SUBMITTED VACCINATIONS TO CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS TO THE FDA. WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THIS? >> YES, OS PFIZER DID IT ENOUGH. AND THEN THEY REALLY DECIDED TO GO WITH A THREE DOSAGE PLAN INSTEAD OF TWO DOSES, WHICH IS REALLY USUAL TO CHILDREN. YOU KNOW, OUR IMMUNE SYSTEMS DEVELOP WHEN WE ARE AT THIS AGE SO WE MAY NEED A LITTLE DIFFERENT ACTIONS. WE ALL KNOW THAT AS PARENTS WE PROVIDE OUR CHILDREN EVERY YEAR FOR SEVEN OR EIGHT DIFFERENT INFORMATION. SO THEY DECIDED TO GO TO A THREE DOSAGE REGIME. THESE DATA SHOULD BE IN THIS MONTH. BUT THE MODERN ISOI GNG WITH A LITTLE LARGER DOSAGE, AND THEY HAVE GONE WITH A TWO DOSAGE REGIME. AND IT IS ENOUGH INTRODUCTORY. SOOR F AGE 6 MONTHS TO 2 YEARS OLD SEEMS TO BE 51% EFFECTIVE. AND FOR CHILDREN IT IS ABOUT 31%. SO THE DATA IS ENCOURAGING. YOU KNOW, BUT WE MUST SEE WHAT THE FDA SAYS ABOUT SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY. >> AND IT WASN’T HURRY TO END THE CHILDREN, YOU KNOW, 12 AND UP TO 17 WITH THE VACCINE SO WHAT DO WE EXPECT WHEN IT COMES FOR CHILDREN UNDER 5? >> YES, SO, YOU KNOW, CHILDREN UNDER 5 ARE NOT HOSPITAL. PEOPLE OVER 60 YEARS OLD DO NOT HAVE THE SAME NATURAL INFECTION. THERE IS NO GREAT PYR OHR RUSH. AS WE BECOME ALL YOUNG AND YOUNG, PEOPLE TEND NOT TO GET SO MUCH. BUT THERE MAY BE HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS. WE ARE CONCERNED. WE HAVE ADOPTED SO THAT AS SOON AS IT IS APPROVED, IT WILL BE SMOOTH AND QUICK DISTRIBUTION. >> ONLY THIS WEEK THE FDA APPROVES REMDESIVIR FOR CHILDREN UP TO 4 WEEKS ENOUGH 7 Pounds TO INJECT. THESE ARE REALLY ONLY FOR THE MOST SICK CHILDREN IN THE HOSPITAL. >> ABSOLUTELY. YOU KNOW, AND THIS IS THE BIGGEST CHANGE WE HAVE SEEN IN THE PANDEMIE FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS. MONOCLONIC ANTIBODIES, REMDESIVIR AND WE RECEIVE DATA THAT IS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE FOR ALL THE DIFFERENT SUPPLEMENTS THAT BEFORE. THOMPSON, THANK YOU FOR CONNECTING WITH US

Vice President Kamala Harris tested negative for COVID-19 on Monday, six days after testing positive for the virus, and was allowed to return to the White House on Tuesday. Related video above: With COVID-19 cases on the rise, are we over the pandemic? Harris’s spokeswoman Kirsten Allen said Harris, who was prescribed Paxlovid antiviral therapy last week, had tested negative for a rapid antigen. Allen said Harris would continue to wear a “good mask fit as close to others” as instructed by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention until the 10th day after she tested positive. CDC guidance allows people to leave isolation on the sixth day after being found positive, as long as they wear a mask around others. The White House goes beyond these guidelines by requiring a negative quick test before allowing infected people to return to the band.
