4:05 pm
received any information from any state agency that in fact is not true. >> reporter: this comes as santa clara county's previous request for a variance from the state order was denied over the weekend. leaving the planned mid-july reopening of certain businesses, such as gyms and salons, in limbo. in san jose, chris nguyen, "abc7 news." well, no more indoor dining in marin county for the next three weeks, because of the worsening coronavirus cases there. we have a look at the reversal that just took effect. >> reporter: it was just one week ago that marin county restaurants ke thisone, wereor . but things move fast in the world of covid, and the county has changed course. they announced sunday night, dining inside will no longer be allowed. the rollback comes amid a surge

4:33 pm
not the virus is airborne. we heard so much about social distancing, but even if you're beyond six feet away, well, we are, because we're connected through -- i'm not sure it's cell phone technology. zoom, all right. so how dangerous is this, and what do we know about that? >> larry, we're definitely further than six feet away in this digital world. but what's happening is the world health organization has not yet made a strong stance about the airborne traps misability of the virus. if you're far away from someone, you're okay. but about 240 scientists from over 30 countries are putting together a big letter to challenge that and saying you know what? these viruses can live in smaller droplets and circulate around in a room, especially one that's smaller without adequate ventilation. that's airborne transmission. this is something we'll have to
4:34 pm
pay attention to, because it could change how we view clubs, restaurants, bars, and schools, as we talk about reopening. there's plenty of evidence to suggest people can get this from being in a tight space. >> that was the next question. how will this affect reopening? certain businesses will be impacted more than others, and you have to wonder about going into -- well, i mean, a gym or any sort of indoor dining situation. >> absolutely. and i don't think it's fair to say that every single restaurant needs to be able to have the right type of spacing and air conditioning and air exchange and windows. but what i do think is that this further emphasizes the fact that people will need to keep masks on when they're indoors. just because, you know, you are in a small space right now, and you think you're far away from someone, three to six feet away. that doesn't mean the droplets fall on the ground and you're okay. you need to wear a mask. especially with gyms. this is going to be a big point that people need to pay
4:35 pm
attention to. >> i'm not sure how many people will want to go to a gym. the sfoufourth of july weekend wrapped up, people not social distancing, dancing around. do you expect another spike? we know that warm weather is not kill thing virus. >> we absolutely do. we know that warm weather -- and let's put it this way. whatever was -- may have been slowed down by warm weather is augmented by the fact that people are crowding together. so cases are still going up. the first thing that concerns me, we saw videos of people not taking it seriously. those are just the videos that resurfaced. that's one issue. we could see spikes from that. the other thing that concerns me is that there is still people out there who are just not following the guidelines and respect taking it seriously. for whatever reason that may be. so the mere fact that people didn't see what happened in the northeast, in the spring, and
4:36 pm
are saying we're okay right now, and aren't paying attention to the data, that is concerning to me. >> you and i were texting about this earlier in the day. i just had this question, we tracked total cases and deaths. what we don't track are active cases. by that i mean we may end up over 3 million cases going back to march. that doesn't tell me how many people have it today. i know hospitalizations and death rates are extremely important. and the good news is the death rate is going down. we don't apparently know how many are active as of this second. >> i think the biostats can be confusing. i encourage people to sit down and think about what that number means. total cases, about 3 million. you look at the amount of recovered cases, according to statds right there, about 90% of cases have recovered.
4:37 pm
little below 5%. people need to look at the test positivity. how many tests are returning a positive case. you take that all together and also hospitalizations. and there is one thing to look at the stats and a snapshot of time and to say right now there isn't many hospitalizations. it's another thick to look at the trend. yes, testing more people will present more cases, but the spread of the virus is what's driving up the hospitalizations and driving up the percentage of tests that come back positive. i understand it's confusing. >> clearly trending in the wrong direction. much of the world is trending in the right direction. something has to change. doctor, thank you for zooming in. always a pleasure when you drop by. >> thank you, sir. this is dropping by for now. >> all right. and the mona lisa has company again. the museum which houses the world's most famous portrait reopened after a four-month

what she did was wrong, she got caught, and now justice is being served. this is what she gets for filing a false police report. >> perhaps her being charged, this will be a deterrent to other people who may be doing the same. >> there are consequences. kanye west is running for president of the united states. the tweet over the weekend sparked a lot of debate, and questions including if he can actually run, he would have to do so as an independent. even then he would need to get the necessary signatures to get on the ballot. that deadline has already passed in six states. the next option would be as a write-in candidate. spencer, do you see kanye west as a significant threat to joe biden or donald trump, because he in the past has been a trump supporter. >> he might be a threat to him in the boxing ring. but i don't think in a political ring. there is a theory out there, i guess it's one of those
4:43 pm
conspiracy theorys that the trump campaign wants kanye to do this, to siphon off enough black votes to weaken joe biden. if kanye west is going to run for president, i would like for him to run in a different country. >> okay. drew, your thoughts on kanye? >> we saw this develop over the weekend, i think a lot of us were like, is this real? we don't know if this is something that we really wants to do, although elon musk is in full support of him. i just -- i don't know why this late in the game, four months away from election day throwing your hat in the ring can be a a der tern deterrent. but kanye is an interesting person. >> "interesting" is a word. >> interesting is the right word. i'm not going to say a word. if publicity is what he seeks, i see no reason to talk about it at all. >> let's move on. >> we're learning about what's going to happen on college campuses this fall.
4:44 pm
so today, harva is saying freshman will be invited to live on campus this fall, while most other undergraduates will be required to learn remotely from home. just to make it clear, all courses will be taught online. but the freshman can live on campus. only 40% o undergraduates will be invited to campus to reduce density and prevent the spread of covid, but all classes will be taught online. tuition costs will remain the same at just under $50,000. this is the tough choice that a lot of colleges are now making. many parents, drew, i'm going to start with you, but i'm hearing from a lot of kids saying i'm going to pay the same amount but it's not the same experience. >> no, not at all. if you're paying almost $50,000 and you're not getting the full experience, i would be pretty mad if i was an undergrad student. maybe you have to think about the long game.
4:45 pm
you're going the graduate with a harvard degree, and maybe that's where the value of your tuition is going. but in the short term, it's a big check to write to not get that full college experience. that's a lot of money. >> spencer, i know a lot of people taking a gap year. i know your kids are passed college age. >> yeah. what is do you think? >> i do have grandchildren, who will be looking ahead. i agree with everything grew said. there is a lot of value in that harvard name on your degree there. but gosh, if you're not getting the full experience of being there in person, interacting face to face, that's a lot of money to pay. i don't know which way to lean on this one. >> yeah. larry, i don't know if it's feasible for students to be tested daily for covid. >> yeah. it would be problematic if everybody was on campus. as a parent, i know talking with
4:46 pm
others, you would like to see the tuition lowered because you're not there. you're sitting in your own bedroom. any way, really good to beat patrick mahomes, the chief's quarterback was rewarded with the largest contract in american sports history. ten years, espn reporting it's worth $450 million. $140 million of that is guaranteed. if you factor in his existing contract, 'set to$477 million over 12 years. easily surpassing the contract of baseball's mike trout. trout has a 12-year, $426.5 million deal with the angels. that is fully guaranteed. spencer, just to give you a number to contrast and compare, the most money that joe montana made in a single season was $4 million. that was in 1994. is patrick mahomes ten times better than joe montana? >> no, and is the cost of living
4:47 pm
ten times greater now? no. oh, my gosh. listen, if the owners have the money to pay, no one is forcing them to offer it. so i guess nfl football must generate a whole lot of revenue. good for mr. mahomes. save it, spend it, invest it well. >> he's only 24 years old. could you imagine being 24 and knowing that you're worth of $400 million? >> i would feel a lot of pressure. i don't have a huge knowledge what football players make, but larry, how is one person worth that much money in a -- how do they even calculate that? >> he says this is what i want, i won the super bowl for you. and you say fill in the blank. that's what you'll get. >> the leagues do make a lot

and bug sprays are best? for sun screen, consumer reports likes coppertone ultraguard lotion spf 70. it did excellent in tests and it's a good bargain at $8 per bottle. apply 15 minutes before you head out. and what about those tests? >> the tick and mosquito born diseases haven't gone away. now is a good time not to get one. our tests show that repellants with 15% to 30% deet are reliable. if you don't want to use that, 20% picardin or 30% oil of lemon eucalyptus. >> do those others work as well as deet? >> the majority of what we recommend are deet. it's most consistently reliable. but the ones that we recommend
