aircraft flying over syria and when 60 minutes went there last year the yellow tracks of russian air tracks were visible on the wall. on saturday that same headquarters authorized a strike by u.s. aircraft which apparently hit a syrian army camp by mistake. that incident is under investigation. but the u.s. says it thought it was striking an isis position and would never deliberately target the syrian military. the ceasefire is now in limbo and so are plans for and russia to set up a joint operations center for strikes against isis. a military spokesman says the u.s. is not anticipating any great progress anytime soon. >> all right. thank you, david. the epipen controversy deepens as the drug maker ceo plans to give congressional testimony today ahead of claims the manufacturer tried to create sw beautiful skies with some clearing from yesterday... and

8:06 am
infections each year. sylvia mathews burwell will address the u.n. general assembly today. good morning. what specific action are you advocating in terms of antibiotic use? >> there are three things that we think are extremely important to focus on to help with the problem. number one, we need to stop overusing antibiotics. i know it is a temptation. i'm the mother of a 6 and 8-year-old and i know what it is like when you go to the doctor. but making sure only when needed. two, we need better tests for determining whetheu antibiotics. when you visit your doctor they don't always know. and the third thing we need is new antibiotics because we have so much resistance as you said with 23,000 people in the united states dying every year and 2 million getting illnesses that are resistant, we need new antibiotics. >> what will you say to make sure they hear you today, because it is not a new topic? >> it is not. this is the first time that we have had this global conversation. and it is something we all need
8:07 am
three points as well as make sure that people are talking about it in their countries. the attention that the u.n. will give this issue is going to raise it, i think, in countries around the world. >> can we talk about zika funding? it has been held up now since february. what problems do you think that's causing? >> so for us at the department of health and human services we're working very hard on a vaccine. we're working hard on tests to make it faster and easier to determine whether you have had zika or not. things like support states like florida where there is local transmission, which means the mosquito in florida is passing zika. many of the cases in the united states, in the 50 states, there are over 3,000 come from people who traveled. but in florida, it is where the mosquito is biting people so we need to help with control of that mosquito. that's what that funding is for and it is essential that we have it by october 1st. >> with some of the alarm, you
8:08 am
officials to try to -- it hasn't turned out that bad in terms of the infections in florida, has it? >> actually, in the united states altogether if you count puerto rico we have 20,000 cases. in puerto rico alone right now there are 1,000 women who tested positively for zika and are pregnant. in the continental u.s., we have high numbers as well. and right now in the u.s., 19 babies have been born with microcephaly. >> anthony fauci is the director of the national institute of diseases and says they have to use funds from other diseases to help. >> first we had to take money from ebola and i think many people don't realize that as recently as in the last month we had had to send teams from the u.s. back to west africa to make sure we're not going to have -- tested and may see cases and we did that. we took funds from ebola at first because the congress did not give us funding before they left in august.
8:09 am
decisions and tony fauci reflected what i did, which was, i had to take money from other disease research such as cancer to make sure that we could continue to make progress on the vaccine for zika. october 1st, we're at the end of the line and so for all of those reasons the congress needs to act by then. >> secretary, let me ask you about opioid overdoses. president obama declared this week prescription opioid and heroin overdose awareness week. is there a this may get better at some point? do you think we're turning any sort of corner with all the attention that has been on it in recent times? >> the attention is making a difference in terms of people focusing on the problem. and there are three areas that we need to focus on deeply. number one is in prescription and prescribing. i think you have seen the numbers. in 2012 alone in the u.s., there were 250 million prescriptions for opioids. and so helping with prescriber
8:10 am
funding for medication assisted treatment. in the u.s. now we have so many people that suffer from abuse. these are the steps we need to take. progress is being made. the funding for that will be very important. >> whether it is the painkillers or the antibiotics, overprescription remains a big problem. >> yeah. >> that's right. and that's why we have put out new guidelines to try that. you probably saw the surgeon general announced a pledge in asking for a pledge for health providers to take a pledge about what they will d to that issue. and right now we have already had -- just did it recently, already 17,000 have signed up for that pledge to help with this issue. but individuals need to do it too. if you're in your home, if you have any of these drugs, you need to get rid of them. that's part of what happens. some of them are prescribed. some of them are taken from others. >> and what is the position of your office on the breakup of angelina jolie and brad pitt? were you talking about that yesterday? i bet that came up in a meeting.
8:11 am
that is going through that, giving them their space and their children their space is probably the most important thing we can all do. >> you are absolutely right about that. thank you. good sense of humor. >> on a light note. >> a good sense of humor. good luck with your address today. >> thank you. thank you very much. thank you for having me. >> sylvia mathews burwell at the table with us. they were told you can't do that but they did it anyway. the pioneers reflect on the power in breaking down barriandn 80s. ...................... temps are averaging upper 60s around the valley kids... and an easy day on the playground and outside for p.e. highs again in the mid 80s today. ..................... are you ready for fall? autumn arrives tomorrow.... but already feels like it with temps in the 80s yesterday and lasting right through the weekend. ............. a humid morning, and there is another chance for rain today and tonight. there are showers right now over southern clark county. ............... as one system exits... another will move in and this next one will bring some big gusty. winds with it... especially in the mountains. ......
