and encouraging steps now we're going in wrong direction. why is this happening? how concerned should we be? >> this is an artifact how we define community transmission. literally. cdc transmission metrics prior to vaccination were based on the fact we were encouraging mask asymptomatic testing because you could pass it on to others. let's pretend that high transmission is 50 over 100,000 cases. line up 100,000 people, 50 have covid in their noses, that's substantial transmission. however, after vaccination in highly vaccinated regions like ours, cdc says don't test if you feel well and you're vaccinated, only go and test if you've been exposed to covid or if you feel like you have covid. so having 50 out of 100,000 people have covid in their nose
after vaccination actually just shows the right people are testing. so it is an artifact. unless we change how we define community transmission, highly vaccinated regions are always going to look like they're in the red. could be a new weapon in the fight against covid, stanford scientists trying to develop a stronger vaccine administered without a needle. sterilizing immunity, protected completely, allowing no chance of infection. vaccine they're working on could be inhaled through the nose, providing a line of defense immediately. >> possible this could be applicable to -- on worldwide scale, obviously best-case scenario. main advantage of this is the fact that you are able to
