1:02 am
or you put it into a modified form called a pseudo virus. and when you do that, you can then get convalescent plasma monoclonal antibodies as well as sarah and antibodies that are induced by the vaccine to see if they neutralize the virus. that will give you a pretty good idea as to what the level of immune evasion is. as i mentioned in my brief comments, the molecular configurations of the mutations can give you a suggestion of immune evasion. but that's one of the things you can do is to take a look what the antibodies actually do. that process will take likely 2 weeks or more, perhaps even sooner, depending upon how well the virus grows and the ice lids that we get. that's the 1st thing on fishing, joins us live now from washington. d. c. allen. we know that there have been a lot of travel bands towards a southern as south africa. another southern african states were finding out though

1:04 am
get the vaccine, if you've had the vaccine, get a boost, are those things he said will protect people, but of course, they're still trying to find out just how contagious this might be in the sea could be 2 to 4 weeks before they start to get the full picture that means here in the united states, for example, you're going to be bumping up against the christmas holiday. why is that important? because thousands and thousands of people will be on the move again will be traveling by trains. they'll be traveling by planes. they'll be going to big family gatherings that could be a pressure point for people across the united states. but anthony folk, she says this is not the time to panic. everyone should just do what they've been doing and hopefully they will get through. as for the world health organization, that advice to other countries is as a say, the travel bonds aren't going to help unless you take an evidence based and risk assess approach to any travel bonds that are put in place. yeah, i mean you say that advice and not to panic. of course, a lot of people saying that many of the travel bands were a little bit of a of
1:05 am
a knee jerk reaction. you mentioned that of course we're coming up to christmas. it's also winter in the northern hemisphere, so a lot of people spending time in door is that what measure is, what practical measures are being taken into us, for example, to try to mitigate possible contagion. while a number of areas are starting to put mask monday's back and place, they dropped them. said, if you're in a store or you're in a a gym, you don't have to wear masks. a lot of places are no saying, yeah, you do simply because they don't know enough about this fairly and we may see that moving on more and more. there is a concern that christmas could be a big problem and people aren't taking this seriously. but as a see from on to the furniture, the advice is still the same way to mask. keep your distance wash your hands, get vaccinated if you haven't been vaccinated. and if you have get the booster. alan fisher with the latest there from washington, d. c. allen that thank you. and as we were mentioning officials in the netherlands
