prash, fever and joint pain. pdr. jo is here to talk about the pgrowing threat. pthree local cases. pshould we be worried about that? p>> i think we should be pinformed, concerned and premember, about 80% of people pare estimated to be pasymptomatic. pif you have three people that preport the disease, there may be pothers that did not so maybe 12 por so if you use those pstatistics could be circulating phere. pwe also worry about the fact pthat there was a sexual ptransmission case, you know, preportedly in dallas. pthat's still under investigation pbut there had been one reviously in colorado and that pone, i have to tell you, a erson was studying mosquitos in pafrica, went to colorado and pinfected his wife a day before phe developed symptoms. pfour kids in the household, pnobody else got it so they are prelatively certain it was psexually transmitted so here's panother mode of trans mission pbesides the mosquitos. p>>laura: so much we still don't pknow. pthe cdc put the operation center
pat one point we knew it was on ar with the ebola. pit. pmean? p>> it's exactly that. pwe haven't seen them put it to plevel one since ebola. pthey want to find out more. pwe don't know a whole lot. pwe know even in those pindividuals that i told you pabout with the sexual ptransmission, they found it in pthe semen, not in the blood. pblood tests are negative. pare they not accurate? pcan it be sexually transmitted? pwe don't know the answers. psome blood tests they do have to psee if you've had it after the pfact. pthere's cross activity with pother viruss so they need to erfect that better. pso there's a vaccine and they pare saying now that they are pgoing to go right ahead and try pto develop those vaccines. pwe put some of this in play with pthe h 1 n 1 and a vaccine center pcan use cell based vaccines so i pthink what this is doing is
utting all the pieces in play pbut allowing and giving that pfunding to make these things go pforward. pi have to tell you, if this does phappen and as it happens, it's pgoing to be a well oiled machine pso that if something else comes pdown the line that perhaps they pcan just put it right back into lay and utilize it. p>>laura: we certainly hope so. pthank you. prussell? p>>russell: hey, thanks, laura. pwell, it is treadmill tuesday. pwe have the folks from the y pdeliver us a treadmill to the pstudio so we can log a few miles ptoday. pi can't stay on here long. pthe script says i to get back to pthe anchor desk but really, it's pjust that i'm out of shape and pi'm bad and can't do this any plonger plonger. pwalter allen, what is your pspeed? p>> 2.8. pwhere are you at? pi can see you. pi'm going a little faster. p>>russell: i'm in 7.9 chlt

ptreadmill for 30 minutes, that's pthe goal at the end of the day. p>> absolutely. pamerican heart association precommends 30 minutes of pcardiovascular activity to pimprove your overall health. pit can lower cholesterol, lower pyour blood pressure and just pmake your heart healthier. p>>walter: is there any reason at pleast 30 minutes? p>> they find them at a minimum. pyou don't even have to do it 30 pminutes in a big chunk. pfor health benefits, you can do p10 minutes here, 10 minutes pthere and equal 30 minutes pthroughout the day. p>>walter: and the best part, i plove it because it's a pdestressor. pyou feel better. p>> absolutely. p>>walter: thank you so much. ptreadmill tuesday. pto get credit for tampa, so it pneeds to be hashtag treadmill ptuesday at tampa ymca. ptake a picture of the time, how plong you've gone and then the pdistance on how far you've
