Dr. Emanuel On Mutations Evading Vaccines: ‘It Would Be Very Problematic’

 

Former Biden transition Covid-19 advisory board member, Dr. Zeke Emanuel, joined Stephanie Ruhle to discuss the CDC's new guidance recommending indoor mask use in areas with high coronavirus transmission rates, and the possibility of mutations evading vaccine effectiveness. Savannah Mayor Van Johnson explains why he reinstated a mask mandate in his city, and NBC's Shaq Brewster, Heidi Przybyla, and Geoff Bennett report from across the country with the latest on the pandemic.

Dr. Emanuel On Mutations Evading Vaccines: 'It Would Be Very Problematic'

  1. You have to be one step ahead of the Covid, now we have it randomly mutating in carriers, but if I you’re not vaccinated you can get sicker longer, the people themselves are the unknown quantity.

    1. Breakthrough infections on the rise, and also putting kids at risk for a variant that gets them…the virus will gravitate towards the most receptive hosts. We need to be a LOT more than one step ahead of it. The US (like Israel) did not put enough time between the first and second vaccines. Those of us who did the 100 days are doing better. This is what happens when idiots and politicians make the decisions rather than experts. We need a “war-time” authority to deal with this. I am for mandatory vaccines…I am philosophically against this, but the unvaccinated put us all at risk by raising the opportunity for the virus to transmit…and mutate. I will be happily wearing a mask for a looong time. Because I don’t want to be a carrier (even if I am protected against major disease) and I think it will benefit my community. My freedom be further limited socially because of this because I am immune compromised. Just blows me away everyone spouting off about their “freedom”.

  2. I wouldn’t mind a variant which killed off the stupid who put the rest of us at risk by not getting the vaccine.

    1. The reality is that delta originated from India. India could have been more highly vaccinated but us patient laws stopped that.

    2. My Team in the west just signed a contract with a printing press to print 45 million booklets 25 pages of information connecting Corporate Media to pharmaceutical companies, Bill Gates, we also include a link to read Klaus Schwab’s CV/19 The Great Reset, HR4310,Crimson Contagion, Event 201,
      , we include resources to interviews to doctors and scientist, we have already touched millions of people across the world, our mission is to hand deliver them to communities and post them on mailboxes(outside not inside)
      our project is 100% legal. and are completely free at no cost . No one can stop us and no one can stop me. Thank you for you’re time

    4. The problem @gljm 1159, is that mutations develop when you give a virus time to multiply, which is more likely to happen in people with a severe infection. Since delta is exceptionally virulent, the seriously ill may pass on a more dangerous variant than delta before they die.

      Besides, wishing severe Covid-19 on your political enemy is morally bankrupt and sounds like something the x-president would come up with. Is that who you are?

  3. I have a neighbor that refuses to get the vaccine. She has been a volunteer at the Senior Center and Food Pantry in our small community. However, she cannot work in these two places, now, because she hasn’t been vaccinated. I was happy to hear that these two places that serve elderly and homeless people, who are not in good health, have set strong rules to protect their patrons.

  4. I’m following my doctor’s advice: Am fully vaccinated, & donning an effective mask when indoors with other people whose vaccination status I do not know.

    1. I’m fully vaccinated, but I don’t give a toot if I get an A-symptomatic case of it and then pass it on to 500 anti-vaxers because I am going to refuse to wear a mask. They made their beds and can sleep in them.

    2. @Herman Houston But you might get sick too. Especially when a new variant comes around, that is not easily evaded. Count on it.

  5. State health departments, PLEASE issue official government documents confirming full Covid-19 vaccination information.

    1. Since you are issued a CDC card for your jab(s), best that the state offer a voluntary but vetted system to log it.

  7. Like medication you see advertised on T.V., ask your doctor if it (Covid-19 vaccine) is right for you. Start there if you aren’t vaccinated.

    1. @Chicken C.D.C. Little Because many breakthrough cases are not reported because symptoms are minimal. Not everybody gets tested.

    2. @Charlotte Ferrari-Girault Then how come they keep reporting “cases” when 99% of them are mild or asymptomatic?

  8. My country of residence is the Dominican Republic and I’m proud of their handling of COVID. Their vaccination rate is now higher than that of the USA, despite a later start. My wife and I have been vaccinated twice with Sinovac. The following week we get a booster, thus the 3rd vaccination for the delta variant. We are beating the US Banana Republic 🙂 🙂
    Good government is the solution!

  9. health tip: get the vaccine in your non-dominant arm, wolverine claws are awkward to write with /S

  10. It’s never been confusing to me since Mar 2020. I’m vaccinated and I wear a mask ANYTIME and ANYWHERE I’m in public.

  11. If it mutates into something more lethal, is being unvaccinated really worth the risk ? If it does this combined with evading the current vaccines God Help Us

  12. Call it a dress code policy and send kids back home if they don’t follow their dress code…

  13. Just wait until all the people coming back from Tokyo soon, bringing back what they picked up there. There will be a worldwide surge within a month.
