7:07 am
sicker after that. miss vinson had a fever of 99.5 and was left sick. it's muss less at the very beginning of the illness so, therefore, it's less likely you're going to infect anybody. >> this is big news. it's not spread beyond this. what about these new guidelines from the cdc. they're must strirkter than before. >> yeah. and i think it makes sense. it's one thing to make a mistake. the thisin is not to learn from these mistakes. it would bother me if they said the protocol is fine, we're not going to change them but the cdc is changing them so they work. >> no exposed skin. >> a minute before i came here i said to the spokesperson for cdc, when are they coming out. he said can't say for sure but hopefully by today. >> what are they going to do? >> i think they're going to make sure in practice things get done
