two decades and the u.s. invasion of afghanistan. extraordinary pictures in the past 24 hours of taliban fighters, armed and inside the afghan presidential palace that came after cnbc in the middle east was abilile to conf the afghan president fled the country fearing for his safety we saw the biden administration deploying 6,000 troops to afghanistan to help to ensure the safety and security of u.s. embassy personnel on the ground as it worked to evacuate the embassy personnel. of course, at the same time, we are monitoring developments at kabul airport which appears to be the center of the story we are seeing reports of mass gatherings on the ground there right now as thousands of afghan citizens attempt to escape what is clearly a worsening security

situation on the ground. nbc reported shots apparently being fired at the airport today as well. clearly the situation continuing to deteriorate all the while, we heard the u.s. secretary of state defending the u.s. decision to withdrawal troops while calling for a peaceful transition of power in afghanistan, whatever that might look like. listen >> yes, we have seen the reports of the afghans and the afghan government and taliban talking about the way forward. we will work to support those efforts. we have a team in doha to do that working with the united nations and other interested countries like qatar to see if there is a peaceful resolution going forward. a peaceful settlement. a peaceful transfer of power that would be good for the people of afghanistan to avoid further bloodshed.
5:06 am
>> reporter: so, dom, the situation is still unfolding as we speak some likening this to president biden's vietnam moment some going as far as to say this was a hasty and embarrassing end to the two-decade engagement in afghanistan. >> it wasn't just a two-decade engagement, but over $1 trillion for the united states and coalition partners it is not just the airport we have seen reports of casualties, dan. it is universities in the city and places that could be the target of taliban interests. what an exactly is happening with the other parts of the city besides just the airport >> well, dom, greatest fear on the ground and in particular in the region, i'm coming to you from abu dhabi
5:07 am
the worry is that afghanistan is going to become a hotbed for terrorism. also, dom, a number of unanswered questions this morning. including how is afghan leadership going to look into the future clearly that situation also quite concerning at the moment at the same time, how and why was the afghan government and army not able to defend t themselves from the taliban and stop the takeover after all of the american investment we have seen on the ground and the big question of what happens next, dom, which is unclear. >> we already have seen headlines coming out afp saying china is willing to develop friendly relations with afghan taliban dan murphy with the latest on afghanistan. thank you. to the top stories sticking with afghanistan. united airlines started

5:10 am
we had a lot of talk from fed governors about tapering i do think they will take a very tempered and measured approach you don't need to be concerned about fed policy it will shift, but be supportive the second is inflation. it remains in the headlines. i think inflation is above the 2% target for some time. i think we are past peak inflation. that should remove that concern and that storm should pass the last is the one i think investors are focused on here which is covid we saw the michigan sentiment decline last week. we have started to see the effect on real-time economic data from the covid variant. things are starting to cool down a bit at the margin. we are coming from strength. economy is strong and we can weather that storm as we pass through the delta variant. >> which of the three in your mind could have the biggest market impact? the biggest drawdown that could
5:11 am
happen if things go wrong? >> i think from covid. i don't think we will have major surprises from the fed they have been clear in communication. again, i'm not concerned about inflation here the numbers are on the table i think we are past it i think if delta gets worse, i think if it goes on longer, if the economic impacts start to snow ball a bit, investors could have a bit of a surprise or rocky road in the next couple weeks. >> we have not seen a significant pullback for the better part of the year or maybe more at this point how big of a pull back could these storms take the market the 3% to 5% that we have grown accustomed to? wo could we see a 20%? another 30% drawdown like the pandemic lows? >> i think somewhere in the middle ground. we have come a long way. stocks are price fairly here we are optimistic for next year. i don't think we will see a normal correction of 5% or 10%
5:12 am
mostly on the change of the sentiment. whether it is michigan or san francisco fed survey sentiment is turning here. bearish readings have picked up. the underlying support is going for growth i think it is in the middle range. >> robert teeter, thank you. >> thank you when we come back, the resurgence of covid forcing more companies to reinstate testing protocols for employees. we talk to the head of one company looking to help with that process plus, t-mobile is looking into a data breach potentially impacting tens of millions of customers. details on what information may have been compromised. and the risky behavior putting a microscope on young traders. we have a sybu hour ahead when

welcome back the spread of the delta variant this summer is forcing many companies to rethink the return to office plans. less than 20% of employers were performing covid tests last spring more are likely to look at the testing now. rapid antigen testing is
5:16 am
available and could be done at home one digital health care company is hoping to lead a safer workplace. offering employers at-home covid testing. dr. harris is with us. thank you. let's talk about just how serious a situation the delta variant has become where employers now have to look at this kind of testing to ensure a safe workplace >> good morning, dom thank you so much for having me. we see across the country increased hospitalizations and icu beds full. so, we know we are in the middle of the surge it is not impacting every region the same, but there's no doubt we are in the middle of the surge. we are also in the middle of going back to work and going back to school and we should be
5:17 am
doing those things and doing those things and facilitating back-to-work and school as safe as possible. the collaboration with quest and emed the opportunity to foster safer workplaces using our platform for testing. >> i'm curious, because for many of us out here, who have been working, i joke around tongue-in-cheek. serious, but not i did not have a pandemic experience i've been in the office since march of last year and since the summer of last year, my company has been testing employees on a regular basis. how much do you think it will be a hurdle for other companies to get employees to adopt this paradigm of having to test to ensure they have a safe workplace? >> you know, dom, at e-immede-immhe-med, we said we want to do the right
5:18 am
thing. you are fortunate with a workplace that is doing the testing. that is uneven particularly early on. that is why e-med was very committed to democratizing access we want employers and employees to make sure the workplaces are safer. testing is a critical component of that. through the e-med platform, it makes it easier for employers to offer this testing not only that, dom, what is unique and the added advantage of e-med is that we have certified guides walk through the process because we know we want to make sure that our results are certified. we want to verify and validate identities it is not enough to take the test you need to take it in a
5:19 am
certified process. these tests need to go to the public health departments at the local, state and federal level to mitigate outbreaks and have the data we need to further address the surge. >> dr. harris, over the course of the last year, in the context of testing, there had always been a delineations or separation of the quality of pcr tests versus those of rapid antigen tests available in 15 to 20 minutes do you feel as though the technology right now has made it so the pcr tests and rapid anti dp antigen tests are a good way to detect covid >> dom, there were unfortunate comparisons early on it is about right place and right usage. i can say the rapid antigen
5:20 am
tests e-med deploysis good at detecting infectious individuals. that is the goal it is not about pcr versus antigen. it is about both they are appropriate for different kinds of usage if you want to, again, increase the usage of these tests in a manner that is affordable, certainly the rapid antigen test through e-med is the way to go >> thank you, dr. harris come back and keep us posted >> thank you, dom. still on deck, a major deal with the world's most well known hotel brands what it could signal about optimism on the rebound in travel we are back in just a moment

warning the country may cross 200,000 cases per day. the last time the country crossed that line was january. dr. collins calling unvaccinated americans quote/unquote sitting ducks for this particular virus. the biden administration is offering covid booster shots for this fall. the first would go to nursing home residents and health care workers. the efforts come as the u.s. report 1 million covid vaccine doses on saturday. the most for a single day since early july all of this as hospitalizations continue to rise particularly in states with unvaccinated people. texas, for example, an increase of 400% over the last month and all seven emergency rooms in the houston hospital system are currently full joining to discuss this is dr. marc boom. president and ceo of methodist
5:34 am
houston hospital how fo thank you for being here this morning. let's talk about how stretched your hospital is due to the pandemic >> we set our all-time record yesterday. at 7:00 p.m., we measure this we hit 749 across the 2,300 bed system it shows no sign of slowing down we are preparing for continued rises and continued stretching of the men and women working so hard for the last 18 months and have done a phenomenal job it is a trying time. we are still not seeing the protections put in place in the community and actions taken to start to bend the curve back down >> doctor, what do you think in your opinion is the reason behind the hospitalizations you have what is it this is driving the surge back to the highest levels
5:35 am
we have seen since early this year >> it is a perfect storm of three things the first is the delta variant the delta variant is widely more infectious it spreads very quickly. couple that with low vaccination rates. in our community, we are 5% or 6% below the united states average. couple that with a time where effectively we had no mitigation activities happening in the community. we start to see that shift back. we see the spreading start to come down. we are still seeing record levels and we don't see an end in sight we will deal and smashing through previous records >> can you take us through what is different this time right now you with the delta variant this feels like the surge last summer or fall are there similarities or differences in your mind from
5:36 am
july or september of last year >> it is similar the rate of increase is astounding it is day after day as opposed to the winter surge which built in the foothills and started steep evening. the other thing we are seeing is this is all about the unvaccinated we get a snapshot across the greater houston region about tens days ago, 91% of patients in hospital were unvaccinated. in my hospital, we have a transplant hospital and vulnerable patients. we are 83% unvaccinated and 17% vaccinated the 17% vaccinated are older and weaker immune systems. immune hesuppression. if we all had gotten vaccinated, they would not be in the hospital we know what to do if we, today, acted like we did
5:37 am
last summer when we realized it is getting bad and stop today, we could break this curve in about ten days we haven't seen the mitigation activities i'm afraid we're in for a significant rise. >> a curve imply there is isan slope and down slope as well we heard evidence and statistics from the uk and israel that appear to see that curve on the down swing right now with the delta variant. is that something that will happen in the u.s. >> i'm sure eventually it will burn itself out. i don't know when. when we look at the uk experience and india experience, we should peak in the next week or so. that is just hope that it looks like theirs. hope is not a strategy we need to focus on changing behaviors and get more people vaccinated and right now, it is
5:38 am
really about masks and distancing it is about stopping many of the things we're doing in large group settings those are clearly spreading the virus. the virus spreads like wildfire among people not vaccinated. >> dr. marc boom, thank you very much for your thoughts good luck with the situation there. >> thank you coming up on the show, a big week for retail ahead with the number of high profile names out with quarterly results stacey is here with more on those. before we head to break, spacex moving closer to the bid for orbital and interplanetary travel elon musk said the starship could be ready for flight in

5:43 am
shortages of just about everything particularly toys and footwear before we get to back to school, we are already seeing problems on the shelves that is the biggest challenge right now. also, you know, talking to stores with the delta variant headlines, you are not really seeing a huge slowdown in traffic quite yet. most of the stores are seeing the american consumer resilient and certainly we learned that. i think there will be some volatility as people are getting somewhat fearful of being back in stores and there is controversy in the stores. mask up? don't mask up? back to school is off to a decent start we haven't had one in two years. look for volatility. >> this is an interesting point, stacey if you look at the balance sheet of the american consumer, overall, the numbers show things

5:52 am
they should or selling early because they're encouraging each other to do so that is the slight difference between the twitter world. fintwits versus the casino the other change is the smart phones another survey or study that looked at german banks and investments. people who use the smartphone are likely to take risky investments. a lot of triggers we have to be aware of and on your phone, where it is too simple, it may not be a good thing sdp. >> ease of use kristina partsinevelos thank you very much. we will use that and stick with the markets. futures are indicating a lower open dow lower by 74 points a big week for investors as we turn back to the federal reserve and the next policy steps.

let's bring in keith lerner at truist advisory. keith, we come off record closes for the s&p and dow. is this a market that you feel is still constructive enough for people to remain investing in? >> first of all, great to be with you, dom. the answer is yes. we typically look at the next 12 months and we look at that and we have an economy that is only about a year into the expansion. the average expansion is five years. the bull market is very much in tact supported by great earning trends as a whole. we are in a transition this is the second year of the bull market. so far, volatility has been low. you see higher volatility as you move to the second year of the bull market. overall, if you have an economy that is sound and earnings that are solid and you still have a favorable monetary policy, even
5:54 am
incrementally less so, that is still a good environment reality is we are not moving 100% up like the last 18 months. >> since the pandemic lows, the s&p doubled in value it can't go on forever we get that. there hasn't been a pull back. we always talk about federal reserve and interest rate policy is the thing that ends the bull runs throughout the course of history. do you expect that the pressure is now on the fed to do something where policy can be normalized, but ynot derail the market >> typically the fed changes just like a peak in growth intends to inject volatility right now, we think the economy is on solid footing. look at the consumer still excess savings debt-to-certify service ratio.
