[ applause ] >> many of us are still going to get covid, even if we take the precautions. that does not mean we are doing anything wrong. unfortunately covid is still with us, as it has been for 2 and half years. our fight is making a huge difference. >> this is a photo he tweeted of his negative test. his personal physician says the president completed his antiviral treatment and has remained fever free. we are moments away from hearing from the reserve. we expect it will announce another interest rate hike, the fourth this year. >> very important, and entirely
expected. >> the fed does not want to be mysterious. it wants to prepare investors and the public for any move it makes. we are expecting at any time to find out it is raising interest rates quarters of a percent. there is a chance we could see a full 1%. we do know the fed has found itself raising rates more and more after resisting early on as inflation got worse and worse. inflation at its highest rates in 40 years. the way to fight is to remove money from the economy. if the fed could take out of your personal wallet, it probably would. it does the next best thing, it makes things more expensive to borrow and increases the amount of money it requires banks to hold all -- onto. the fed does not that mortgage rates, credit card rates or car loan rates, they do tend to move higher with the federal funds . your credit score has more effect than the fed does.
>> to those rates, having gone up much higher? >> they have over the last couple of months. i think the days of 3% or 4% mortgages that we saw over these past two years were probably an aberration. if you look at historical data it is definitely having an effect on the housing market. the latest numbers show sales nationwide down about 20% from last month. also new overnight, we are trying to learn what led to a deli shooting in oakland. this is video from the scene. police say it happened shortly after 1:00 in the morning near a homeless encampment. we can confirm one man died, but so far opd has not told us of any arrests. they are asking people to avoid the area as they investigate. the belay hope police

given for information leading to the arrest of the individuals responsible. last week our homicide investigators released surveillance video that we believe voices are heard in this video that might be audible for someone. maybe someone can identify the individuals they see. that is critically important. we have followed up on every lead that we received and we ask community members to continue to share information with us. we believe at some point we are going to find those responsible. >> before you go one last thing, for anyone in the community truly relying on police officers to protect and keep them and their family safe and alive right now what you say to those people in fear? >> we've been working around the clock to address gun violence in the city. our cease-fire strategy is being fully implemented. committees are at the table, resources are being divided. the partnerships and the faith
