to be seen as as a litmus test for the broader market it's the 1st currency exchange to go public it's going to be worth probably more than the owner of the new york stock exchange when it goes public today so it's extremely highly valued because of the interest in the market right now but there also are still a lot of outstanding concerns because the cryptocurrency market remains so volatile that means that their business is going to remain volatile and that's something we haven't really seen with with it with a publicly traded stock and so there is a lot of excitement today but it's going to still be a bit of a volatile ride for a point base well let's look at the market interest of the investor interest because i mentioned just a few of those the cryptic currencies traded on coin bays and if somehow you can see the woodford trees i mean which ones are with looking at more closely.

12:42 pm
outnumber c.d.'s it's thought that europe will follow suit yet it's often difficult to find the bands and music you like on vinyl that's why i paste decided to press on l.p.'s and turned his passion for nostalgic sound into a business. we have contacted the groups that we like the labels we like that have several of the artists that we like and we told them that we would like to do by anil additions or even really issue some old records. and they will. with concerts and festivals canceled following lockdowns records can remind audio files of the golden age of music many rock soul and jass plastics were recorded on vinyl not on cd however it's still a niche market when you factor in streaming and downloads vinyl makes up just 3.6 percent of music consumption in the u.s.

however small the impact of rising l.p.'s sales on the music industry spot in line is this 100 year old technology with a modern twist it's giving music lovers a vintage experience in these trying times. and that's your business update here and at this hour from in the team member len thanks for watching stay safe. the fountain against the corona virus pandemic. has the rate of infection in developing what does the latest research say. information and contacts the coronavirus update. on t w. i was robbed of my dignity 77 percent takes on modern slavery shooting a boy on the field of german women in italy obscene met women who were

tricked. forced into prostitution their stories busy last month she forced me into 6 truths and exclusion of the 77 percent. contained on t.w. . the u.s. is vaccine program is the envy of much of the world with over 3000000 people getting the job every day. but the virus continues to spread quickly. states like michigan are especially hard hit causing some to call for tough medicine. the answer is to really close things down to go back to our basics to go back to where we were last spring last summer and try to shut down with 70000 new
12:45 pm
infections each day vaccines alone might not be enough to turn the tide in the fight against covert 19. no other country in the world has been hit harder by the corona virus the united states has had the most confirmed cases and deaths in the world and despite its unprecedented vaccination program those numbers are still rising many people have grown weary of lockdown and with warming weather many states have lifted restrictions facing the threat of a 4th wave president joe biden's administration is doubling down to back the nation as the key to ending the pandemic but local outbreaks threaten to do that strategy . john brooks joins us from the c.d.c. the centers for disease control and prevention how would you say the u.s. is coming along there's been a change in leadership a change in the weather but has there been progress in the fight against covert. well i think there has been steady progress in the fight against cove even since we
12:46 pm
began and this is despite 3 waves including a really unprecedented 3rd wave over the holiday season but we're coming down off the back of that wave right now and really getting the numbers down quickly we're not succeeding yet i mean we're making incredible progress but the number of new infections we're seeing in this country remains about what it was during our 2nd wave last summer so what about 50000 new infections a day and 525021000 deaths a day by the numbers of murder. promising when you take a look at who's been inoculated a 3rd of the population has got at least one jap that's over 120000000 americans but with the focus on getting people back to native what about new restrictions on the economy because there's a new wave of coronavirus cases as you mentioned and hospitals are getting crowded . that's right and this you know we want to reserve using those really most
12:47 pm
difficult decisions of shutting down the economy when we have to apply them but it's becoming apparent that we may be at a place where in some jurisdictions certain states it may be time to sort of shut down a little bit to gain control over this virus i mean we're in a big race right now all right we are racing against the virus with vaccine and we've got to get the vaccine out as soon as possible we're asking people to hold on a little bit longer we know it's frustrating it's been a rough year people want to get back to the normal life they enjoyed before but we're not done with this race we're not done with the battle we're going to have to hang on to we can really get vaccinations out john is that message getting through to state officials because in michigan state health director says the government's focusing on getting more people bath unaided rather than imposing new restrictions on the economy. well it would be wonderful if vaccination took effect immediately but you know it takes a couple of weeks for you to be to benefit from vaccination with the beyond tech
12:48 pm
vaccine is $21.00 days between doses plus another 14 days until you're fully covered but they're seeing a problem right now and to deal with the problem right now you need to cut off the chain to transmission with whatever you have at your disposal and unfortunately at this time the best needs for that would be slowing down on the reopening of society there so which states would you say are getting it right which are getting it wrong because again despite all those vaccinations the 7 day case 48100000 people is a 515 in michigan california is only a 50. that's right and it's interesting it's also very low in i believe states like texas and florida where one might have expected you know that it would be higher so where we don't understand exactly why the rates are different in different states it's probably some combination of the fact that some states have got more vaccine out they have more social distancing measures still in place the government and
12:49 pm
political opinion is aligned with public health so we're all singing from the same songbook we say right that we're all working together and not against each other what about a 100 immunity is there going to be a stage where the u.s. will reach that. yeah i mean i have an infectious disease doctor i've been working in this area for 30 years and i'm certain that we will reach herd immunity i just don't know what that number is we'll know it when we get there because there will be a sustained decline and then leveling off of new infections and that will be the point when there's been enough people vaccinated as well unfortunately as people who've recovered from illness that the virus can't find anywhere else to go and that also depends upon whether or not the virus manages to mutate in a direction that's absolutely right we're watching that very carefully i mean these mutations concert these variants they're called really concern us a lot and vigilance really matters when viruses vary so we've put in
12:50 pm
i'm sorry go ahead though that what we're going to say. i think we put into place a very very. large national effort to routinely screen a large number of these viruses down a moderator for variants and to identify those mutations which either make the virus more transmissible may increase the severity or undercuts some of the activity of drugs that we use against the virus ok on on that very topic i wanted to just mention some americans are already getting a 3rd dose which will be used to some people around the world that they're taking part in a study of updated versions of the current a virus vaccines and they've been tweaked to tackle mutations of the virus a variant this covered in britain just months ago is already the most common version of the corona virus circulating in the united states current back scenes off strong protection against these mutations but researches want to be ready to respond to new threats that emerge of course that study is being run by the
12:51 pm
national institute of health and emory university in atlanta i believe john which is where you'll based these sorts of tweaks can be achieved in a matter of weeks if the regulators that hold back the process by months can and should that be changed. well i think they'll be a lot of urgency to find a pathway forward where we can make these changes these and adopt these regulatory changes as rapidly as we possibly can while of course maintaining the safety of the public will be receiving these vaccines you know we have annual flu vaccination now in that case every year the world health organization and other public health organizations around the world look ahead as to what may be commie but we have a different situation now we have these m r n a vaccines from beyond ecan moderna and other companies that you can custom create the vaccine with m r n
12:52 pm
a relatively quickly and then it takes probably weeks to a few months to get that into production i believe that given the experience with this pandemic we're going to hopefully see regulators moving just as quickly with us. that would be nice to have. you can you can you can find the is there is there anything else that you can leave us with they give us some sort of hope in his cries that. well i'll just say this i mean our food and drug administration is the organization in charge of these regulations and they say they have experienced this pandemic just like we have in our agency which is in charge of things related to prevention and i think that there is a strong desire to move forward into this future in a way that we can keep the public safe but respond more fleetly we've had some bad experiences where we weren't able to respond as quickly as we'd like and is clear that that's going to be an important thing in the future both of they thank you very much for joining us today it's my pleasure. in another setback the united

12:54 pm
a measure to prevent you from contracting it in the 1st place or at least ensuring that if you do get the disease it will be a milder case and you won't end up in the hospital the reason the pandemic went global so fast and so on so quickly out of control is because sars could be too was a novel pathogen that no one had been exposed to before a state that 'd experts call being immunologically naïve the vaccines now in use basically teach your body that there's a bad bug out there that looks like this so that if it shows up in your nose or throat your immune system is is forewarned and can jump on it quickly but just like it takes time for your immune system to respond if you're infected for real it also takes time to ramp up in a mutant response to the fake infection that a vaccine simulates a couple of weeks give or take
12:55 pm
a few days depending on the back seem so so giving someone who has a severe case of the disease a vaccine won't help and could likely do harm that's why trusted health care authorities like the centers for disease control recommend that if you have covert 19 you need to wait a while after your symptoms have completely. cited before you even began to consider getting vaccinated. finally surging coronavirus cases in many parts of the world a row shadowing the start of ramadan south asia's nations of battling a spiraling outbreak europe has passed a 1000000 deaths the muslim holy month is a time of avoiding food and drink during the day and coming together for feasts at night both a challenge during the pandemic indonesia has the world's biggest muslim population of people have been attending socially distance services did most its islamic body
