>> well, the pandemic has led to more shortages and we can probably remember, but one of the most critical shortages we now face is blood. but collectors like the american red cross or vital and say the nation's blood by talent rather say that nation's blood supplies reach historically low levels. despite the shortage, and bisexual men are still banned from donating blood safe. recently had with
another man. but a new study is looking to change that. and researchers might be able to use your help. we are joined now by doctor brian custer, the director of epidemiology and policy science vitality research institute in san francisco. thank you for being with us tonight. so first of all, just explain why. >> why is this portion of our population still excluded from donating blood? >> thank you. so so we can start playing. of course, there's precedent from quite a long time ago of the hiv epidemic. really, i think it's the caution with the fda of changing rules too quickly. and so this and bisexual men are still excluded because we don't feel that that there are enough data available to be able change the policy or at least that's the fda's perspective. and that's exactly why this particular study is trying to address topics to see if we can change that >> but but hiv does not affect only game in hiv can affect
anyone. so instead of screening against men, why aren't people just tested to see if they have hiv period and if they don't have hiv, should they be able to give blood? >> i think that's actually an excellent point. so every donation that is given is tested for hiv. and the testing is exceptionally good. and that's exactly why the policy really can and we can find a better way of making an individual risk based assessment. so each individual with their particular risks, word be selected are not selected based on those. and that really is the future. that is where we want to go. >> so tell us about the study was going to happen. >> sure. so the study is the advanced study and the specific purpose of this is exactly that is to try to say how could we introduce new questions on the donor history questionnaire would allow and bisexual men who are sexually active to be potential blood donors. so we are part of the study that's being conducted
in 8 different cities, including the bay area to try to collect these data that the fda feels it needs to be able change the policy to that individual risk-based approach. issue has been discussed a bit for a long time about whether or not men should be able to donate blood. but right now it's particularly important. >> because of the blood shortage, what can you tell us about how bad that shortage really is? it really is a very serious shortage. we are looking at a 2 year low in the availability of the stocks in the supply. but i mean by that is we have about a four-day supply on hand. that's a historically low level. >> and so we're trying to do everything we can to encourage people who are interested in going to be donors to come in to donate in parallel. a study like this can actually help expand the donor base. it won't address the current problem, but it might alleviate any risk of such a kind of. deficiency and amount of been supplied in the future. >> so talk about the recruits
that you're looking for, how they should apply. what are the criteria? you know, when does this begin? absolutely happy to do so. >> so the best thing to do is just going to be advanced study, dot org website will tell you more about the specific study expect, but we are specific for this study looking for 18 to 39 year-old man who are or bisexual or men who have with men. and i've had with another man at least once in the last 3 months. and then they come their original point. we have 2 appointments, eczema barrier, one in san francisco at the blood at took a masonic and the city and the second one that's opening up next on claremont avenue in oakland. so of those locations, people will be able to book an appointment registered to participate in the study and then come in to to consent to go through that process of actually asking alaskans test that are the ones that might be on the future 100 district questionnaire and also collect a blood sample for testing.
>> and real real quick because we're out of time. once you get your recruits, how long do you think before you have the study results? >> yes, so we're planning to run the study in terms of enrolling participants through probably july of this year and then we'll analyze the data for the 2nd half of the year hoping to get all of these data to the for them to to work on the decision that the fda, of course, moves fairly cautious i don't expect anything into the end of the year at the earliest. all right, doctor brian custer with my talent, thank you so much for your time tonight. good luck with your study. thank you very much. new at 10 tonight as the omicron variant sends covid numbers soaring across much of the country. many health officials are struggling to keep track of new cases. >> deaths and hospitalizations, according to johns hopkins university, more than 300 million people worldwide have contracted the virus. nearly a 5th of those cases are right here in the u.s. brian entin reports. health experts warn the real numbers may actually be far greater.
>> seen the long lines for covid tests and the numbers have reflected with doctors and testing sites seeing a surge like never before. the numbers have really escalated. and when we come back after new years, it was like, i mean, almost like nothing we had ever seen. even in the height of covid previously, maybe a year or so number is escalating numbers of cases, numbers of deaths. we hear about covid numbers all the time. whether they make us feel better or more nervous. but the truth of the matter is, most experts say, while the numbers matter they are not accurate, our liable really are the numbers >> there underestimate vast underestimate the latest count from johns hopkins university shows the u.s. has had 59 million covid cases and almost 9 million in the last 28 days. >> but infectious disease expert doctor aileen marty says covid cases are likely 20% higher than the numbers show. part of the reason is
because so many people are using at-home tests home tests are so popular. now. >> most people i know aren't reporting the numbers. do you think that's a big problem? >> it was that it's a because it's it gives us a false sense of security. and it doesn't allow us to recognize exactly where the hot spots are. remember, surge in cases usually comes weeks before a surge in hospitalizations. and doctor, marty says not knowing where the hot spots are is especially troubling because additional resources can be sent in before hospitalizations get out of control. there's always going to be a problem with numbers. and and you know, not nothing's perfect. you've got to get to as close as you can. and you do estimate. and that's what we've always done for all kinds of diseases. >> that was brian entin reporting. experts say the number of covid deaths is also inaccurate because they don't always account for people suffering from long-term
covid. there's also the fact that many people get covid and then recover without ever knowing they really had it. when is the best time to get tested for covid after exposure. the cdc has a few suggestions. >> get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with the person with the virus, the date of the last close contact is considered a 0 fully vaccinated. people should get tested 5 to 7 days after close contact with a person suspected or confirmed with having covid. and according to the cdc, people have tested positive for covid within the past 3 months and recovered. do not have to get tested as long as they do not develop new symptoms. the skyrocketing demand for covid tests has led to a rise in new testing scams. san francisco health officials are warning of an authorized covid test sites in the city such as this location in a tweet advertising free pcr testing at a tent near to lowe's stores park. that is not on the list of san
francisco's authorize testing sites. you can find that list at s f dot gov. slash get tested. it's not just happening in the bay area. health officials in san diego are also warning about fake pop-up testing sites. they say while any of the sites are collecting information, they're not releasing test results. the county's chief medical officer says there are red flags. people should be watching out for. >> when you ask test is being around and what what labs are running at and what organization there with or who the ordering physician is. can't tell you any of that. and they also can produce a document showing a bear or a medical professional, many tide, which you have to be in order to be collecting that type of in the field. >> officials say no testing shy site should ever ask for any non medical information such as your social security number. and it is not just an official pop-up test sites. local authorities say they are getting reports of people selling fake at home. covid
tests kits online. >> here is some advice from the federal trade commission on how you can make sure that as you are buying is the real thing. make sure it is authorized by the fda. you can find the complete list on the fda agency's website. also do your research on the seller, the website or the company before you buy. that includes checking reviews on where you are potentially by the covid test and be sure to pay by credit card because you can always dispute the charge with your bank. you can find all of this information on our website. kron 4 dot com. happening now. a winter storm is pounding large portions of the northeast causing school closures, power outages and flight cancellations. the first big storm of the new year stretches from maine to virginia. the governors of new york i'm sorry, new jersey and virginia have declared states of emergency point. look at how snow, buffalo, new york, was hit with 14 inches of snow by early afternoon. the snow
