7:00 pm
we represent our sorry no good all our fault future it will keep being our fault until our leaders stop bending over backwards i like to say there's always a bull market somewhere. i promise to try to find it for you right here on "mad money." see you tomorrow time for concern but not panic. the new virus. racing to understand the new covid omnicron variant how america is preparing >> i'm removing all roadblocks to keep the american people safe >> why president biden says it's a cause for concern, not panic the holiday shopping blitz under way. cyber monday poised to set records. >> we expect about one million orders to come out of this building today
7:01 pm
>> can retailers keep up max well finally gets her day in court what to expect in the criminal trial of jeffrey epstein's close associate. a huge announcement in the tech world the twitter ceo jack dorsey steps down what we know about the man taking over. the deposition tapes of former governor andrew cuomo jessie smollett in court for his hoax attack. major league baseball toward a possible strike. good evening it's an uncomfortable position but familiar as well the virus mutated again and the scientists say they don't know too much about it. health experts say in a week, possibly two weeks, they will have a better understanding. the early word, lots of changes to the spike protein
7:02 pm
that's what it uses to get into our cells and infects us beyond that, there's simply more questions than answers the main ones is omnicron more contagious than the delta variant? does it cause more severe disease? how do the vaccines hold up against this brand new variant health expert and scientists say they need more data to answer those questions and that will take time. here is what we do know as of this news hour the world health organization reports omnicron poses a very high risk because it has so many more mutations like i mentioned, than the prooevious strains it could fuel new out breaks and could cause severe consequences in some areas. here is what else we know. researchers have detected omnicron cases in 19 countries. the new variant has not been identified in the united states
7:03 pm
but the experts admit if it's not here, it will be president biden says the u.s. is prepared the fight and beat omnicron with the tools we already have readily available >> best protection is getting fully vaccinated and getting a booster shot as a ddditional protections, we your mask indoors and public settings around other people >> new york city reimposed mask advisory city officials not mandating but strongly recommending that everybody wear a mask indoors in most public settings vaccinated or not.
7:04 pm
first, new reporting from cnbc senior health and science correspondent. meg, you spoke with the top vaccine makers today what did they tell you >> well, work got under way at these vaccine companies last week to understand the impact the new variant may have on the current vaccines and disease new omnicron specific vaccines should they be needed. moderna ceo is assessing whether a full dose booster shot could provide sufficient protection which would be a faster solution than a whole new design. >> they could be done right way but it would be months before the variant is ready to ship in massive quantities when we learn that in week or two depending on how much it
7:05 pm
drop, we might decide the higher dose of the current vaccine around the world >> that information from lab studies on how well current vaccines neutralize will be key. both modernp a and pfizer estimate they could have new vaccines targeting omnicron ready within three months. the fda would need to clear them and from there manufacturing would also need to ramp up pfizer ceo told us they believe they could pivot quickly if needed with that in mind, viability will not be but the efficacy is high i'm optimistic we're going to win this battle as well. now to 80 million courses of treatment up from 50 million
7:06 pm
previously merck also said it expects the antiviral drug to remain active against omnicron >> moving quickly. thank you. the u.s. and countries around the world announcing new measures to slow the spread of the omnicron variant the biden administration now banning travel from south of ka and seven other countries in that region. the restrictions do not apply to american citizens and before the ban took effect today, there was no requirement to test those who arrived in the united states other countries required testing upon arrival from southern africa the u.s. didn't. why? >> good evening. passengers received take home testing kits when they landed but completing them was a
7:07 pm
reco recommends dags and to require them you need an order from the centers for disease control. that takes time and consensus to move in that direction a group of top officials from relevant government agencies have ramped up discussions those are now happening daily. the administration's new travel restrictions backed most vocally by the president's top doctor anthony fauci meant to buy time to get more information and also to get more shots in arms. today president biden was asked whether he would reinstate restrictions on the uk and europe where large clusters of omnicron cases have emerged. >> the degree of spread impacts on whether or not there's a need for any travel restriction
7:08 pm
that's not, i don't especially that at this point we'll see. we'll see that works >> mr. biden also said vaccine and testing requirements for domestic travel are still unlikely a new plan to fight covid this winter is expected the feature a renewed push for vaccinations, boosters and masking in public and the white house is expected to unveil that strategy on thursday >> thank you doctor, thank you. the cdc is now encouraging every adult in america to get a booster. medically, why does it make sense to get a booster before we know how well these vaccines work against this new variant? >> the idea is really to buy ourselves time if omnicron does turn out to be an immune evading variant, in other words, vaccines are not as protective against omnicron as they were against prior variants if that turns tout be true,
7:09 pm
giving a booster is a way to over ride that relative immune evasion. it's a strategy that would hav worked with the beta variant, an earlier variant that was immune evading. that did not become widespread it's way of protecting people, buying ourselves time until companies like pfizer and moderna are able to develop second generation, omnicron specific vaccines. >> their treatments beyond vaccines, including antibody treatments and we may soon have anti-viral pills is there anything in the mutations that you have seen here that suggests these treatments will hold up against covid omnicron >> the mechanisms are very different for antibodies we are concerned that the antibodies may not be potent against omnicron however, the merck drug, the pfizer drug work through very different mechanisms of action
7:10 pm
and the mutations in spike p protein should not have an impact on whether the drugs still work we believe they will still remain effective >> so much love for the south african scientists who were able to detect this thing and their transparency since then. the experts agree it's likely omnicron is probably here in the united states though it hasn't officially been detected is the u.s. behind other countries in our ability to identify and trace these variants >> we are. i used to work in south africa on hiv and tb and know many of the scientist who is are doing the work on covid. these are top, world class v virologists. we are not doing nearly the scale of sequencing that they are doing. we really should be sequencing about 20% of our cases here in the united states and we still, while we have ramped up, we're
7:11 pm
still not doing nearly enough. >> the travel bans, medical or political? >> honestly, i think that's largely political. travel bans can work but we really would have needed to implement them sooner. they didn't go until effect until today. they need to be applied to every one. bit like what australia and new zealand did. if americans are exempt from our travel restriction, those flights from atlanta to jober are more than half americans >> delta took over and just ran rough shot and a lot of us still have a delta wave to come that may really mess up the winter. that said, how worried are you based on what you know about covid omnicron >> i'm concerned i'm not panicking. i think there's still a lot we're waiting the find out i think in about two weeks, we
7:12 pm
should have some answers as to whether omnicron is immune evading. >> thank you our coverage of omnicron is getting started. coming up, mask mandates, boosters for all adults and phone tracking technology. the aggressive steps that some countries are taking to stop the potential spread, ahead on the news first, an update on president biden's vaccine man date federal workers will fot get punished for refusing to comply until next year. that's new from the white house. last week was the deadline for federal workers to get a shot or risk getting fired or suspended. the white house says more than 96% of workers have complied with that mandate. the trial of ghislaine maxwell is under way how prosecutors tied her directly to jeffrey especpstein
