Welcome to Coronavirus Daily, a podcast from Audacy here to give you the very latest information to help guide you and your family through the global COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. Hosted By Mike Simpson & Charles Feldman from KNX Newsradio.

    Should teenagers be allowed to call their own shots on getting vaccinated against COVID? -- The pandemic-induced home schooling rush -- The Great Resignation.....or The Great Shift?

    Should teenagers be allowed to call their own shots on getting vaccinated against COVID? -- The pandemic-induced home schooling rush -- The Great Resignation.....or The Great Shift?

    Teenagers are now cleared by the CDC and FDA to be vaccinated against COVID-19; but what if their parents won't let them get the shots? A bill in California would let kids as young as 12 get vaccinated without their parents consent. But can kids that young really make their own medical decisions?
    The pandemic has more parents in California taking their kids out of school and moving them into homeschooling. Some even form their own small groups and co-ops--we'll take a closer look.
    Then: There are thousands of Americans who caught COVID in the first wave of the pandemic back in early 2020; and two years later, they're still grappling with symptoms and effects of the virus. What more do we know about Long COVID?
    And finally, whether it's the great resignation or the great "shift," the pandemic has most definitely brought about long lasting changes to the American economy.

    Marking 2 years since the first novel coronavirus infection was reported here in the United States

    Marking 2 years since the first novel coronavirus infection was reported here in the United States

    Two years ago on this very day...life in the United States would change as we know it. The CDC confirmed the first case of COVID-19 in the country. It came from samples taken in Washington State.  
    Since then, the virus has spread everywhere infecting tens of millions of people and killing more than 850,000 so far.  
    So today we're taking stock of the COVID-19 pandemic two years later.  
    We'll explore what we've learned and the progress that's been made in trying to save lives and slow the spread of the virus. 
    But can we ever eliminate it? Some European countries are considering drastically easing restrictions and learning to live with the virus. Should we do that here? 
    We'll check in with a long hauler to find out how she and others like her are holding up two years in. 
    And we look into what can be done to move us along to the end...and what does that end look like?

    Could we have been fooling ourselves about the milder COVID illnesses from omicron? -- Is an upside to this winter COVID surge a move from pandemic.....to endemic?

    Could we have been fooling ourselves about the milder COVID illnesses from omicron? -- Is an upside to this winter COVID surge a move from pandemic.....to endemic?

    We've been told for a few weeks now that the omicron COVID variant is producing milder illnesses in the people unlucky enough to catch it--and indeed, there have even been some very preliminary studies backing up that notion.
    But what if we had it all wrong?
    We're starting to see an increase in COVID deaths here in L-A County. Last Tuesday, 15 deaths from COVID complications were reported by public health; that jumped to 66 recorded on Saturday, the highest in more than nine months. So we'll take a closer look at the supposedly "milder" omicron variant.
    Also--the hope had been that with the wildfire-like spread of the omicron variant, the COVID pandemic would turn "endemic," meaning we could start to treat COVID sicknesses like a seasonal flu. That thinking, it turns out, might have been too optimistic.

    The Supreme Court strikes down Biden's vaccine mandate for businesses. Plus, nurses protest in California

    The Supreme Court strikes down Biden's vaccine mandate for businesses. Plus, nurses protest in California

    The Supreme Court strikes down President Biden's vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees. But the justices are allowing a mandate for healthcare workers to stand.
    President Biden is pledging more free at-home tests and high-quality masks for Americans as the Omicron surge continues.
    Many hospitals are at a breaking point right now. And nurses in Southern California are unhappy with new rules allowing them to come back to work after testing positive for Covid-19 if they don't have any symptoms.

    Insurance companies will start covering at-home Covid tests, but can you find them? Plus, the Omicron surge might finally be peaking.

    Insurance companies will start covering at-home Covid tests, but can you find them? Plus, the Omicron surge might finally be peaking.

    Private insurance will start covering the cost of at-home Covid-19 tests. Will it be easy to get reimbursed? And will it remain hard to find them?
    Pfizer is producing an Omicron-specific version of its Covid vaccine, but will it be too late to make a difference by the time it's available?
    And we could soon see the number of Covid cases plummet in the U.S. Scientists say we may be close to the peak of the Omicron surge.

    A new hospitalization record for the U.S., but it's not all bad news. Plus, when will see vaccines for kids under 5?

    A new hospitalization record for the U.S., but it's not all bad news. Plus, when will see vaccines for kids under 5?

    The United States set a new record with more than 140,000 Covid-19 patients in the hospital, but the good news is that most cases don't appear to be as severe.
    The CEO at United Airlines says none of the company's vaccinated employees died of Covid-19. Will this convince other businesses to implement vaccine mandates.
    We still don't have vaccines approved for children under the age of 5. When will that change?
    And even though more kids are getting Covid-19, some health experts think it's smart and necessary to keep schools open.

People are saying

People are saying out here that they do not trust the government and scientists work for the government. Look if there was no www Only TV. Back to coiled string phones. We would all get the vaccine, but this mis-information along with YouTube uploads on government conspiracies are one of the hesitations. My two cents is look get it on 20/20 and other shows from start to finish, ‘ “COVID-19 birth to Present, and it’s road to the Cure “. Educate Educate.

Clear concise Covid updates.

Clear. Concise. Insightful updates on COVID-19.

Biased

This program incorrectly projects all blame for extent of pandemic and the amount of public vaccine/mask refusal at the feet of Trump and conservatives. The problem is clearly both ends of the political /social spectrum NOT just one but it’s not pc to acknowledge this fact.

Some good information but you need to wade though left wing political propaganda to try and get to the data. Of course that should make you wonder about the validity when they start with their political agenda.
