DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello my name is Romduol and I will interpret Dr. Ghaly’s Press Report from today September 10.

 

WHITE TEXT: inside a white parallelogram on black background: COVID-19 Update

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The coronavirus cell, a grey sphere with many red spikes

 

DR. GHALY: To begin, I want to share a few updates about COVID-19.  Recently, people waiting for COVID-19 test results whether by nasal swab, mouth swab, or antibody blood tests, many had to wait a long time sometimes up to one week.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Inside three dark blue circles are three images: [left circle] image of a female doctor. [middle circle] is a person getting a nasal swab. [right circle]t is a microscope and vials. On the bottom is a frustrated emoji face and an hourglass showing a long wait.

 

DR. GHALY: But now, you will notice that you get the results back in 1 to 2 days; much faster.  That way you know your results more quickly.  Labs are processing the tests as quickly as they are getting them.  This is great!

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Inside three dark blue circles are three images: [left circle] image of a female doctor. [middle circle] is a person getting a nasal swab. [right circle]t is a microscope and vials. On the bottom is a happy emoji face with a thumbs up and a stop watch with a fast ticker showing a short wait.

 

DR. GHALY: Now that people know quickly whether they have COVID-19 or not then they know what do.  Those who have COVID-19 need to stay home until they don’t have the virus anymore.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A white house with two floors. Upstairs there is a sick emoji face with coronavirus cells around the face. There is a lock to show the sick person needs to stay upstairs. Downstairs there are three different emoji faces wearing masks in separate rooms.

 

DR. GHALY: We have done a lot of research to see how COVID-19 has spread.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: There are many rows of silhouettes and each row has less people. There is a downward arrow with a coronavirus cell and smiley face. This shows that the number of people who have coronavirus is decreasing.

 

DR. GHALY: If you want more information about where COVID-19 has spread and where it is decreasing, you can look online at www.covid19.ca.gov

 

WHITE TEXT: www.covid19.ca.gov

 

DR. GHALY: The next topic is quite serious.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Two rows of headshot pictures of three black and brown people of African, Asian, Hispanic and Middle Eastern descent in each row (total of six) with brown/tan/pink backgrounds.

 

DR. GHALY: Remember I shared before the the number of Black and Latinx people have had a higher number of COVID-19 cases?  Yes that is true, we are still seeing this happen. We continue to try to figure out how to give them more services.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A stethoscope  on a light blue background.

 

DR. GHALY: We still see again and again that Black and Brown people have limited access to services while white people have access to much more.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: One row of three pictures of people of European descent (baby, woman with long hair, man with short hair).

 

DR. GHALY: We see that white people get the virus less because they have more access to services. While we see a high number of Black people died from COVID-19. Now we are seeing an increase in the number of cases among Hawaiian natives and descendents living in California.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A native Hawaiian man wearing traditional puka shell crown and necklace with thick blades of grass wrapped around his wrists. His fists are closed and he is doing a traditional Hawaiian dance.

 

DR. GHALY: The second group we are seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases is from Asian-Pacific Islanders (API).

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Two rows of four pictures each with a total of eight pictures of young male and female Pacific Islanders. They are wearing mainstream clothes with traditional Pacific Islander jewelry. Some are wearing folded grass crowns and others have grass necklaces.

 

DR. GHALY: So we are establishing more partners to provide more resources to Hawaiian and API to be sure that they are getting what they need and their number of COVID-19 positive cases go down.  We want to see People of Color have the same access to services as white people do.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A brown man looks inside the trunk of a van which is parked by a sidewalk that has tents, boxes, suitcases, and large bags.

 

DR. GHALY: We are also concerned about those living in poverty and who easily become sick because of breathing issues or other physical challenges.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A older brown woman in a blue hospital gown on a hospital bed winces as a doctor wearing full coronavirus protective gear (face shield, gown, gloves, mask) inserts an IV.

 

DR. GHALY: Those who are older and their bodies are less immune and thus easily become sick.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Stick figures of varying skin tones and flags scattered across the map of the continental United States

 

DR,. GHALY: We also think about people who move to America from other countries who may not have health insurance and may not know about services and resources available to them.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A blue, white, and red Medicare Health insurance card with a large black Rx symbol in the middle. The card is registered to a “John L. Smith” with fake Medicare numbers and information.

 

DR. GHALY: The next topic is about shelters during COVID-19.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A picture of a large hall with bright lights and several black bunkbeds with white sheets distanced from each other.

 

DR. GHALY: We have several shelters available for people who are without a place to stay or live because of money or other reasons, these shelters are available.  All people entering must be screened to make sure they are healthy, answer questions before entering, and they will provide you with a bed.  If you are sick, then they will provide you with medical services needed to give you what you need and find you a different place to stay where you are safe until you recover.  The next topic is about holidays such as Halloween.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Trick or treating children in costume waiting at a door. A big red “not allowed” symbol (a circle with a diagonal line through it) is on top of the picture

 

DR. GHALY: During Halloween, we often see people going from door to door to pass out or get candy in a bag.  They might dress up with masks and costumes. However, now with COVID-19 this is not safe so don’t do that.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A large turkey sits in the center of a table with traditional Thanksgiving food items like pumpkin pie, cranberry, brussel sprouts, and gravy. A big red “not allowed” symbol (a circle with a diagonal line through it) is on top of the picture

 

DR. GHALY: then after Halloween is Thanksgiving where people often get together, cook a lot of food, sit around a table and eat with friends and family.  This type of gathering, mixed socializing is not allowed now with COVID-19.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A decorated Christmas tree with many boxes of presents. A big red “not allowed” symbol (a circle with a diagonal line through it) is on top of the picture

 

DR. GHALY: After Thanksgiving is Christmas time with people gathered around a tree, passing out gifts, lots of people together in one place, again, this is not something we can do during COVID-19.   This applies to all different religious groups, different holidays, different traditions, different cultures, different celebrations, do not get together during these times for these events.  Follow our guidelines to wear a mask.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: White Rectangle with four rows of images and text.  The top row is an image of hands with soap next to the orange text: Wash.  The second row is a head with a blue mask next to the blue text: Cover. Third row is outline of a blue spray bottle next to orange text: Clean. Fourth row is a woman with long hair in blue clothes with a light blue arrow next to her next to blue text: 6 Feet.

 

DR. GHALY: Stay 6 feet apart, wash your hands, don’t gather together in people’s homes, stay at your own home.  As long as we don’t have a vaccine then it is not safe to socialize with people outside of your home.  Stay home, please! Thank you.
