9:12 am
9:13 am
seeing patients with ptsd type symptoms, depression, anxiety, cognitive impairment. as many as one in five american adults who have had covid-19 say they're still dealing with symptoms from that virus. that's according to the centers for disease control . people who suffer from long covid can experience symptoms ranging from breathing and lung problems to brain fog and mental health issues. ucsf along with the health departments of san francisco and san mateo counties
9:14 am
are teaming up to reach out to people who have had covid to hear their stories and better understand long covid. joining us this morning to talk about it is dr kim rose. she's with the ucsf department of epidemiology and by statistics, and she's one of the leaders of the let's figure out long covid project. thanks for being with us doctor. thank you for having me. of course, 2.5 years into this pandemic, there's still so much we don't know about long. covid what are some of the questions you hope to get answers to with this study. well i think the most important part of what we're trying to do here is understand how prevalent long covid is. many people end up with long covid after having an acute about, um of the infection. and by doing that, what we will be better able to do is start to predict who is at highest risk for getting long covid. what are the features or , um uh um, immune responses that are particular to people
9:15 am
who do end up with longer lasting symptoms that will allow us to help people prevent, um and really, uh way their risk. uh getting on covid and then therefore mitigate more appropriately. sorry doctor. i just are there any initial clues or information so far about who may be more susceptible to along covid and what triggers it. actually we don't have a lot of information about it, and that's really why we are in the position that we're in. and that's also why you know of the 15th centers across the country who are going to be looking at this, um, that ucsf center has really committed itself to understanding how common it is in population. not just how many people we can count or how many people we know with long covid but really doing a very robust epidemiological assessment of
9:16 am
the risk of long covid and the prevalence of long covid so because we don't have any clues right now, we actually need to understand what's happening in population. we need to characterize symptoms that people have. um and then, in the phase two part of the study. we need to understand what's happening inside the body. are there, residual? um virus still harbored somewhere in the body? is it the person's own immune response? that is now over reactive? we just don't know any of the answers to these questions. and that's why this study is super important. so really starting from square one who qualifies to participate in the study, and how are you reaching out to those people? so the ucsf center as i mentioned there, 15 centers, so the ucsf center is focused on and partnered with san mateo county public health department and san francisco department of public health, so we're really focused in those two counties in terms of who we're going to be looking at, and which stories we really want to focus on so that we can
9:17 am
again get a population based understanding. of the prevalence . the way we're going to be reaching out is we're going to leverage the networks that we have already established in our ability to, uh, and efforts to address acute covid through the ucsf initiatives united in health. we need those since salud and umoja health what should people expect if they get a call from researchers of the study? so what people should expect to get is a relatively short call, maybe 10 minutes or so, um questions about when the acute bout of covid happened. how many times people have had covid we need to understand whether or not that increases the risk. well, then be asking people. how are you feeling and just allow them to express some of what they've been experiencing, and then we will also run a list of symptoms to try to understand which symptoms are most common and that people are experiencing most frequently
9:18 am
. how many people do you hope to include and will it include children as well? so our center is not one of the centers. that's including children or pediatric cases. the center in texas is actually looking closely at pediatric cases. but we will also let people who get called know that there is an opportunity to be part of the study, where they can provide tissue samples also have clinic visits and assessments over time. um if they're interested in in doing so. so for people suffering from long covid now is there any hope you can share about possible cures or treatments or even getting close to that? or is that still far off? hence the reason for the study? yeah we're really far off at this point. what we're trying to do now is just managed symptoms and also, i think really importantly, we're trying to validate people's experiences because a lot of folks are having the experience of their family members telling them well
9:19 am
, you're not tired. you know, you just need to get more motivated or you're not really short of breath. um and what we need to do is validate the fact that that long covid is real and that these symptoms are real. and that they need some kind of intervention. so for now, we're really just trying to manage what those symptoms are and help people cope with the fact that they have this chronic, potentially chronic condition. we hope that the findings from the national study are really going to point us in the direction of more effective treatments and potentially cure , but for now, i just really want to emphasize that the main risk of getting long covid is getting covid. and so we really need to continue to focus our efforts on mitigation and reducing community spread. alright long road ahead. let's figure out long. covid is the name of the project and the study. thanks for joining us and telling us about it. dr kim rhodes from ucsf department of epidemiology and biostatistics. thank you for having me such important work. they're coming up a lawsuit over the deadly mckinney fire up in siskiyou county. next on the nine wildfires. survivors are suing

9:24 am
bigger fog bank, other than that the inland temps continue to be in the nineties, but coast in bay. this is the biggest fog bank we've had all week. if you have in lake county, you don't get that fog bank. but bridget says good morning and happy friday. from cobb mountain and beautiful lake county. now, cobb mounds 4700 ft but probably closer to carbon 6100. ft. now the fog did a good push there this morning, and i'll show you that right there. it was, after some temps here, lower lake 73 sorry. the 83 on carbon 82 in connacht e ville 76, so it'll be a hot one near 100 for many in the lake county can't really help them. you can see the fog made. it just passed up to healdsburg and then poof. it's starting to retreat yet it's still alan peterson tells me good morning, sir. socked in here at the charles schulz airports, sonoma county santa rosa airport, and there it is. that's a big push now starting to retreat, but still made it all the way up there to healdsburg. also napa valley napa, yonville even farther north than that, now, beginning to burn back, but still, that's a that's a big push here
9:25 am
compared to anything we've seen this week. fog drizzle breezy times, sonny allen, but still nice to add a few well inland. it'll be really hot. it's going to be all about the monsoon for arizona, maybe southern nevada. reno had some pretty good thunderstorms yesterday. looks like that has pushed east but i think you're okay there. but if you have any travel plans to arizona, maybe even las vegas i would keep an eye on things they're talking about. maybe one of the wettest days this monsoon season, which began june 15th, and it's already been very wet. so this could be very active day today, and also tomorrow is the way it's looking. that system in the gulf of alaska should provide some relief for inland temps on sunday, but until then, it's more of the same coast and bay. you're not changing much. there's too much fog out there. yeah, well inland also after the values still dealing with nineties to near 100 degree temps, so eventually this pattern looks like it'll change. but right now it's just subtle day today changes sixties to nineties and maybe it'll slight bump up on inland temps saturday . little cool down sunday, little warmer monday back a little cooler tuesday. all right. thank you, steve. we all
9:26 am

9:29 am
proves music works to help you feel better, but only if you're the one choosing the songs. scientists at two universities in great britain found that music can help someone feel less physical or emotional pain, but only if the listeners the one choosing the pandora stream. in my case during the study, they asked participants to rate their pain before and after listening to a song and those who choose their own music report more pain relief, and they say, the tempo energy complexity of the music really doesn't matter. as long as it is your choice. what do you say, andre? are you a big music listener in your office? yeah absolutely. i listened to it and go to the gym or pretty much anything between that. podcast so, yes, i have my selection and i know how it makes me feel so you know, i could definitely see it. music has therapeutic effects that's been shown to many, many studies. but i wonder how much of this since so much depends on the person choosing their song. i wonder how much of this has to do with just the empowerment of being able to make that choice. distracting you from the pain. i don't know. i'm not a psychologist, but it's an interesting study. for sure it'll help anything right will
9:30 am
help any situation. absolutely absolutely. let's switch gears now to an ongoing political story we've been covering a federal judge indicates he may approve the release of some highly sensitive documents. that supports the government's search of the florida estate of former president trump. judge bruce reinhart says he's inclined to make public some of the affidavit that led to an early morning fbi search of the former president's house. the justice department objects to the release of that information, claiming it could harm their investigation, which they say is still in its early stages. he understands that the public is going to likely be entitled to some parts of this warrant application and its affidavit important understand that what this does is it potentially betrays sources and also, crucially, you can tell adversaries how we gather information. um, so it is potentially very damaging to national security. the fbi had no choice but to do what they did here. trump claims that everything he took out of mara
9:31 am
lago by agents was declassified , and he has encouraged the release of that affidavit. the judge has the final decision. the community is coming together to support a san jose fire captain after three of his children died in a car crash. captain steven bia condra this 14 year old twin daughters and 12 year old son died in a car crash this weekend in hollister , the firefighters, ex wife and the mother of his children also died in that crash. california highway patrol says the foreword traveling in a tesla on highway 1 56. on their vehicle crossed into oncoming traffic. that was his world. um that that's what you know he lived for was being there for his children, um, loving life with them. most people are so connected to their child that there that that that they're part of them, you know their dna flows from from from the adult to the child. all three children were students in the carmel unified school district. district officials say the situation has taken a toll

9:36 am
of fame where so many other people of his same stature and even more or some that i've done less are honored on the hollywood walk of fame. this is a place where those who come from other cities, other states, other countries walked down and they want to know who is important. the world. and so this had to meet a lot to his family to be honored in such a way. he did so much community work. anti violence work. tell me a little bit about the legacy . he leaves, you know, being again. los angeles is one of the places i consider los angeles like its own country. because los angeles here we have our own everything on food way of lifestyle that happens in los angeles. and so nipsey hustle was absolutely ingrained in the culture. he was ingrained in los angeles from beginning to end, and so what he's going to leave behind. also, there are so many other aspiring rappers that want to go and do exactly what is doing his team right now. they have different entrepreneurial ventures that they're doing. posthumous music is being released. he's been nominated for grammys, and so he's going to leave a legacy of a los angeles rapper that was able to
9:37 am
bypass so many different obstacles that came his way and still be considered one of the greatest rappers to live a life and i know that a lot of your viewers are very closely following the court case linked to his killing. his attack was found guilty about to be sentenced next month. yes again . that is one of the more sadder parts that we have to think about. when we think about nipsey hustle. of course, his life was cut way too soon, and we are have been following the case and what's going on, and hopefully this family can get some justice and rest because it has to be an awful feeling to relive what happened to nipsey hustle, day in and day out, so i'm sure getting the star on hollywood walk of fame and what would have been his 37th birthday brought some light to the situation and we can honor him in a more positive way briefly here to politics. demi we know that two black women are on the ballot in two top senate races in the south this november. what are your viewers telling you about cheri beasley and val demings in north carolina and florida? well val demings first. her name rings bell. she's not new to this.
9:38 am
she's true to this, as some would say, beasley against her name rings bells a little bit, but val dimming is very, very, very big name. and so i was reading a story. i believe i was on the i forgot where exactly where it was at. but the headline read access is the new civil rights and so that brings so tremendously to the black community because today i believe there are only 11 african americans who have served as served as senators. and so access access access is what the african american community has been asking for. from different roles in the government is so to have two black women to black women serve as senators. first black senators would be iconic for our culture and for america, honestly, a lot of eyes nationwide on this race happening these two races happening there in the south demi lobo. thanks as always, for joining us, we'll look forward to seeing you next week as well. absolutely i cannot wait to join you next thursday. thank you so much for having me, of course, very good, quick reminder that you can watch demi logo on fox solano. foxhole dot tv could
