4:05 am
unimaginable or is one of those things that happens yet again in america sadly, routine oh, the pattern paused as the nation did for the pandemic. but now it picks up right where we left off. before the lockdowns there was a shooting spree last march in springfield, missouri, across five mile that's left four dead. remember that? weeks earlier in a beer company in milwaukee a disgruntled worker shot and killed five workers and then himself remember the details of that one? they do in milwaukee or las vegas or the pulse nightclub the synagogue in pittsburgh. the seikh church, the adaptist church in texas, the bible study in charleston. you remember as many, as a news consumer, 41 mass shootings in

>> covid watch now astrazeneca is facing new questions about its vaccine. it turns out the promising trial results reported yesterday may have included outdated information about the shot's efficacy, that's the official word from top u.s. health
4:16 am
experts. the abrupt announcement clouding the u.s. trial which found the vaccine was safe and effective as preventing covid. a major setback for astrazeneca who is facing trust and safety concerns over sears here's anthony fauci reacting. >> this is unfortunate this happened, likely a unforced error because it is very likely a good vaccine >> they are in short being accused of cherry-picking data now, what exactly happened here and how unusual is this? >> it's very unusual, shep an the response from the public health world is about it being a problem with the way astrazeneca is communicating the vaccine data not necessarily an issue with the vaccine itself, prominent physician calling it quote an apparent breach of integrity on
4:17 am
twitter and another doctor saying the company's incompetence in communicating trial results and working with regulatory agencies is stunning. here's what we know of what happened yesterday the major news that astrazeneca 30,000-person u.s. phase three trial showed 79% efficacy in preventing symptomatic covid-19 but the oversight board was surprised by the disclosure, which dr. fauci made in a statement just after midnight last night posted in the "new york times" the panel had been 34meeting wih the company seeing data the vaccine was closer to 69% to 74% recommended and strong evacuative and effective and strongly recommended it be reported.effe
4:18 am
recommended it be reported the unprecedented move could shake trust in an important vaccine not just for the u.s. but more importantly in the rest of the world >> if the public loses faith in the main swrak -- vaccine that was supposed to help european union, south america, many many nations, that means economy is slow, travel and trade is hurt. it's a huge deal. >> astrazeneca said it will immediately engage with the oversight board to share analysis of the most up-to-date efficacy data and will issue those results within two days. >> thank you. now new insight into one of the enduring mysteries of the pandemic, covid long-haulers and symptoms they face a new study out of arizona

4:20 am
that this is a really serious problem associated with coached. >> you -- covid >> you know, a study yesterday said long-term covid can effect everything in the body one doctor said it changed how she practiced medicine, quote, no matter what the patient comes in for, i now ask if they ever had covid, it changes the possible range of diagnose sis is this the new normal >> it's extremely challenging. we may be looking in a real pivot the way we practice medicine i think, pre-covid there were a lot of people showing up with non-specific symptoms and they were concerned they were being treated with formula-medicine opposed to patient-centric and
4:21 am
symptom-centric in treatment approaches one of the things that fizz iglesiass one of the things physicians have to do as we see the increase in long-hauler activity is listen to what patients tell them treat each symptom as part of a larger problem i really hope this changes medicine for the better. >> david, thank you so much. there's growing concern over a surge of migrants at the border, new pictures released by the administration of facilities in texas tonight we get a bird's eye view when we tag along with the texas department of public safety. and it looks like a dating site but it's really a baby-making site how one company is trying to streli
