7:08 am
what happens if americans don't stick to social distancing and mask guidelines this weekend? >> yes. so good morning. thanks for having me on. you know, this is the probably te last holiday where a vast majority of americans will remain unvaccinated. obviously if there are vaccinated people getting together over the holiday, great, but if you have unvaccinated people mingling, i worry about another surge. that's what we see every holiday, and given this is the last one, i'm worried that people can hold off this weekend. be careful. i think we'll be in a much, much better place. >> let's look at some of the cdc's new travel guidance. for domestic travelers, no tests or quarantining are recommended for fully vaccinated people. for fully vaccinated americans returning to the u.s. from overseas, the guidelines call for a negative test before boarding the flight home and a test three to five days after returning, but no quarantine. this sort of sounds contradictory. i'm curious. what would you tell your family?
7:09 am
>> yeah, it does, and i totally understand that. right now much of the evidence -- most of the evidence, as people who get vaccinated are not going to transmit the virus to others. that's not sort of foolproof yet, but it does look like that pretty strongly, and i think that's why they've encouraged domestic travelers to do what they're doing. on the international front, there's still a lot of variants out there. i think the question is even though we're not fully sure, let's add that extra level of precaution and make sure people aren't bringing any variants into the country. i understand. this is temporary and over time this too will change. we're kind of evolving as we're learning more about the vaccines. >> i think you sort of mentioned this, but bottom line, almost a quarter of the adult population has been fully vaccinated. can fully vaccinated people transmit the virus? >> you know, the best evidence is not really. th may littlest oidce right now says that fully vaccinated people should rarely transmit the virus, and that's what the really good news of this science really is at this
7:10 am
moment. >> and another reason to get the vaccine. dr. ashish jha, thank you for being with us. whit? we turn to the deadly attack on capitol hill. the officer injured was released from the hospital overnight as new details are emerging about the suspect, and tributes pour in for the police officer that was killed. abc's faith abubey has more from washington for us. faith, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, whit. amid those new developments, the capitol police union coming out with a desperate plea, essentially dialing up pressure on congress to address security gaps. cheers at a washington, d.c. hospital as ken shaver, the second capitol police officer struck by a ca leaves to applause from his fellow officers. getting out of his wheelchair i. now the capitol police union with an urgent plea, asking lawmakers to ramp up security after the latest deadly attack on the u.s. capitol.

state to come, and the consequences of this bill are significant. >> reporter: the new law requires identification for vote by mail, limits the use of drop boxes and restricts who can provide food and water to voters waiting in line. advocates of the changes say it is needed for election integrity while critics say it suppresses the vote, especially for black voters who are a third of the state's population and overwhelmingly support democratic candidates. this week, more than 70 black executives bought a full page ad calling on businesses to fight what they call restrictive voting laws. >> if you support the constitutional right of voting for all americans, we should make it easier to vote, not harder. >> reporter: the fallout, a potential warning sign after states changed their voting laws. texas under the microscope after the senate passed an election billday that cuts some early voting options. american airlines and dell pushing back at the proposals adding to the growing number of

7:43 am
>> what's my name? sorry, maybe that one is too hard. ecast be "nomla," n. the event is somehow up to the minute, 50 years after the fact, and more than a decade after aaron sorkin wrote it. >> it was painfully relevant then. it felt even more painfully relevant while we were making it. >> reporter: tv categories may offer more love for the creek or for "ted lasso" and jason sudeik sudeikis. >> this is at a time when this was desperately needed. >> in the writing of the show, we tried to stay away from a lot

7:48 am
abc's deirdre bolton says there are a number of factors at play here. deirdre, good morning. is there any good news? >> reporter: janai, we'll just say there's some upside and there's some downside, but in the meantime, even for a lot of americans so far, while their wallets may be feeling lighting, analysts say this is because of increases in some cases which have already been put into play. companies such as hormel and smucker's, they have raised prices. diapers and paper products, cereal, might be more expensive as early as this june. you might even pay more for pet food. so 9 lives, kibbles and bits, meow mix, milk bone, they may see price increases. the reason is because these companies are paying higher freight, manufacturing and shipping fees. they're also paying more for ingredients. so grain and the pulp that goes into paper products. these are more expensive right now than they were last year.
7:49 am
so blame part of these price moves on the pandemic. americans are buying up home staples, and you have more demand paired with sometimes lmited or inefficient supply chain, and that equals higher prices across the board. you can also blame that february freeze that triggered mass blackouts in texas and that led to chemical plant shutdowns. the recent shipping troubles in the suez canal off the coast of southern california as well completing this trifecta, and that is essentially, janai, costing the global economy billions of dollars per day. janai? skippy and jiff. i don't like paying more for my peanut butte de thank you so much. ♪ you are my sunshine ♪ ♪ my only sunshine... ♪
