6:38 am
think that we're going to start seeing lots of these co infections. he says it's unclear how sick people get from flurona. in fact, we're very worried that having both of these viruses at the same time may overwhelm the immune system. >> tells us the best defense is to get vaccinated for both. you can actually get your covid back scene. >> and your flu vaccine at the same time. >> in san francisco, in organization believes that recent vandalism to their banner is excuse me, racially motivated take a look at this. a banner reading asians are strong, went up on highway one. oh, one near the vermont street exit in san francisco on new year's day. it was a way to empower the asian american community going into the new year. but 3 days later it was vandalized hudson lau is the founder of asians, a strong community organization. he believes that this was an act of vandalism and act of anti asian hate.
