3:04 pm
chicago students could start wik and special education kids this. then in march you will seek kindergarten all the way through eighth grade. no timeline of return for high school students, bret. >> bret: mike tobin live in a snow we chicago to talk more about schools and vaccines, let's bring in top public health director the national institute of allergy and infectious diseases, dr. anthony fauci anthony fauci. dr. fauci think you for being here. >> thank you. >> bret: you heard bikes report and there is a lot of concern from parents, teachers, communities about getting the students back to schools. camp these communities do it safe now even though the teachers are not vaccinated? >> i think what you heard the doctor say that this can be done provided that the capability of keeping the children and the teachers safe, mainly wearing a mask and having the resources to be able to arrange the classes so that you have appropriate
3:05 pm
spacing. those kind of things, and public health issues can be done. but obviously, you have a lot of serious discussions going on between the teachers union and the officials of the city and the states that you just mentioned. so it's not an easy problem to solve. obviously, we want to get teachers vaccinated. they are essential personnel as far as we are concerned. it would be important to get them vaccinated, but there are situations where you likely can still get children back to school providing you do it in a safe environment with masking and other public health measures. >> bret: chose to be clear, you are not speaking a personal capacity. you are speaking is the job you do, right? we had the white house come out saying the cdc director saying the exact same thing you said, speaking in a personal capacity but not official guidance. this will be the official guidance, is it not? >> the official guidance come up bret, likely coming out before
3:06 pm
the end of this week. so i think it would be important rather than trying to get different opinions of it, let's see what the guidance shows and we can all discuss about the various aspects of the guidance. but it will be coming out -- i'm almost certain before the end of the week. >> bret: where are we on this virus? right now and we know about getting the vaccines, getting them out and about but fighting the virus. what are the numbers you are seeing and what are you looking at right now? >> bret we been through a terrible period over the last month as you know. we had a situation up to 300,000, 4,400,000 cases per da, and hospitals being overrun but the good news now is what we are seeing numerically is that there has been a plateauing and a coming down of numbers of cases.
3:07 pm
rather significant diminution and we hope to be going that direction. that is the good news. the somewhat challenging news is that we have variance, namely mutations that occurred and dominate in places like the u.k. that are now here in the united states. and from the data that we get from our british colleagues is that this virus tends to transmit more readily from person to person, which means that we are going to have to double down on public health measures. the good news is that the vaccine that we have that we are distributing now, even though the supply has not yet completely met the demands, the vaccine is effective against that variant that is predominant in the u.k. so we have a task ahead of us. we have to do two things simultaneously. we have got to adhere to the public health measures, masking, physical distancing, voiding congregate settings, but at the same time, as possible to get as
3:08 pm
many people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can. that will help contain the outbreak and also helped to contain the spread of these variants which are of concern here in the united states and other countries. >> bret: dr. fauci come i want to bring you back to february of last year. this is white house task force. you were talking there about the status of this virus at that point. take a listen. >> you can't be relying on a vaccine over the next several months to a year. however, if this virus which we have every believe to believe it will happen, it will go be on every season and recycle next year. if that is the case, we hope to have a vaccine. >> bret: i just want to get your thoughts about looking back at that piece of tape, and what you were thinking then and what you are thinking now. >> well come i think what happened was even beyond the
3:09 pm
expectations in a positive way. when i was asked back then because we had started working on the vaccine, literally in january, i guess a month before that tape, bret and i was asked when do we think we will have a vaccine that might be available? and i said 12-18 months. fortunately for us because a variety of circumstances, we were able to show that we have a vaccine that is both highly efficacious, 94%-95% with a very good safety profile. so i said back on the tape that you just showed, that we would need to vaccine and get a handle on this. fortunately for us now, we do have a vaccine. the question is we have to get enough doses out to get as many people vaccinated as possible. >> bret: i want to do a quick lightning around here. do we know now if you have covid, have had to covid, how long your protection lasts? we know you can get it again, but do we know, do we have any
3:10 pm
studies about the numbers now? >> no, we don't, bret. it varies from person to person. it will likely be six months or more, but we don't know the complete durability of that. we will know the durability of protection against with regard to the vaccine if we follow individuals long enough. but everyone is obviously asking that question come if i got infected in february, how long will it be protected against reinfection and against the same virus? and the fact is, bret, we don't have a definitive answer to that question, although we can surmise it is likely several months at least. >> bret: last thing, watching the super bowl last night kudos to the nfl and they cut the season through and it was exciting to watch, but is there going to be a time when we are going to have no masks? when is that time? if you had to guess going to a sports game, going to a theater, going to a concert without a mask?
3:11 pm
>> you know, bret that will be dependent on the level of the virus in the community down. if we can get and i have used this as an estimate, it is not definitive come if we can get 70%-85% of the population vaccinated and get to where we hope it would be to a degree, herd immunity, which really is an umbrella or a veil of protection against the community where the level of virus is so low, it is not a threat at all, then at that point, you can start thinking in terms of not having to have two wear a mask. but we are certainly not near there yet. when do i think that will occur? it is very hard to predict, bret, but if everything falls into place and we get this under control, it is conceivable that you might be able to pull back a bit on the public health measures as we get into the late fall of this year. but there was no guarantee of that. because if we don't get the
3:12 pm
overwhelming majority of the population vaccinated, there will still be a considerable amount of virus in the community. as long as that is the case, bret, people will have to wear masks. >> bret: you know, because of what we are doing with the coronavirus, we haven't heard a lot about the seasonal flu. you lose 30000-60000 people at the flu. has not gone down dramatically? >> extraordinarily and infect that is a good testimony to the efficacy of wearing masks, voiding congregate settings, and keeping distance. because we did that during this late fall, early winter. and the level of influenza in the community is remarkably low regarding comparisons to other years. our australian colleagues have the same experience during their winter, which is essentially our summer. when i was talking to my colleagues in australia, they were sagging, tony, we don't

have hardly any flu this year ad we think it is due to the fact that people are wearing masks, keeping their distance and avoiding congregate settings. goes to show you those public health measures actually work. >> bret: dr. fauci, we appreciate your time. welcome back anytime. >> thank you, brett, good to be with you. >> bret: president biden to push to trillion dollar covert relief plan without bipartisan support, but not the only thing on his agenda that is raising eg republicans, peter doocy looks at the other plants while the president still has to answer questions about his predecessor. >> president biden is not following pro-trump impeachment trial, but instead his focus is covid-19. it's supporting a democratic proposal for federal payments up to $3600 per child for qualifying families. >> this proposal is emergency funding.

when he's already gone. apart from that, the case that trump incited the mob by what he said on the day of the riot seems a little weak in either the fact explicitly encouraged these protesters to go to capitol hill and protest, as he put it, peacefully and patriotically. i think the case would be better made if trey gowdy suggested, our new contributor, that made the case that it's fair to act when the riot started might be grounds or in my view, all the stuff he pumped into the brains of his supporters about the election being stolen, which clearly animated a lot of them to come to washington might be a better ground. but nonetheless, they clearly want to get it over with and we will only see a try when the matter a few days judging by the schedule that mike just articulated. >> bret: this is just one count, the insight count.

economy, great, good paying union jobs in america and advance our climate in clean energy is something we can do together. >> bret: richard trumka afl-cio asked about the keystone xl pipeline wishing president biden hadn't done that day one. 11,000 people have lost their jobs and may be more and their promised energy jobs, new clean energy jobs that aren't available yet. let's bring in the panel harold ford jr., and inclusion capital mollie hemingway senior editor of the federal weight and congressman trey gowdy. after a stint last week prime time live, trey we talk with you. what about the energy back and forth and the jobs they say are coming but people deal with the job loss right now? >> trey: well, here is a crazy idea, bret, why don't you kill keystone pipeline after you
3:50 pm
create infrastructure jobs, that way 11,000 people aren't out of work? the moral for me as political bases are very needy. heath thought the highest priority and the reason he was elected president was to kill a pipeline, not covid, not political rhetoric but to kill a pipeline. political bases are very needy groups. >> bret: harold? >> harold: well, i find myself -- thanks for having me on task i will probably wait on the keystone pipeline. it had already been approved although not everyone has had on this show, he has been taking in drilling oil and gas and electric cars. i think in new president is onto something and trying to figure out how we transform to a different and clean energy economy. in fact, president trump's outgoing head of the world bank who came to the job believing that claimant was the wrong path and believing leaving that job

putting the world bank and americans -- i think with the president is trying to do, he would have waited. but i share trey thinking about this. i might have waited on that and moved a different direction, but i like what he is doing and sincerely hope $1.9 trillion relief package is something he doesn't relent on and continues to push. >> bret: mollie, the news that trump came out and said what he said, obviously an ally of president biden. >> yes, first of all let me say the pipeline should not have been killed. it was a wonderful thing that was helping provide energy independence for the country which isn't just good for domestic jobs but good for national security. and president biden was pretty honest what he wanted to do with the economy but he was not honest about what he was going to do in terms of getting rid of the pipeline and destroying so many jobs without a plan in place or what those jobs could be. but it seems if president biden
3:52 pm
were trying to kill the economy he would do what is exactly doing. this pipeline thing or raising taxes or getting rid of the tax cuts or whether of the $15 minimum wage he wants to put forth, which is totally something large corporations can handle but absolutely destroy small businesses. and then more than anything his refusal to take on the teachers union as they hold children hostage and making sure schools cannot be reopened, not having the courage to take that on shows this economic that could be in play might be here for some time. >> bret: dr. fauci is saying those guidelines, cdc guidelines coming up this week and imminently we will see where that goes beyond the personal capacity of the cdc director on that issue of schools. the other thing that is raising eyebrows in d.c., trey, immigration policy. take a listen. >> now the biden administration is saying they will not deport criminal, illegal aliens with
