  • CNBC Television published this video item, entitled “LIVE: White House Covid-19 Response Team and public health officials hold briefing — 6/22/2021” – below is their description.

    The White House Covid-19 Response Team and federal public health officials hold a press briefing to provide updates on the Covid-19 response effort. The Biden administration plans to confirm Tuesday that it won’t likely hit President Joe Biden’s goal of getting 70% of American adults to receive one vaccine shot or more by the Fourth of July, according to advance remarks obtained by NBC News.

    White House Covid czar Jeff Zients is set to announce that the administration has met the 70% mark for those aged 30 years and older and is on track to hit it for those 27 and older by July 4, according to NBC News. But it will likely take a few extra weeks beyond the holiday to reach the milestone for all adults, Zients will say in his prepared remarks.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical advisor to the president, joins the briefing along with Dr. Vivek Murthy, surgeon general of the United States, Jeff Zients, White House Covid-19 response coordinator, and Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    In This Story: Allergy

    Allergies are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. These include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling.

    Common allergens include pollen and certain foods. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors.

    Treatments for allergies include the avoidance of known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines. In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended.

    Allergies are common. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people.
