A tragic day in the hoosier 44news at noon.

I'm -- erran huber -- let's first--take a look at the ongoing struggle the tri-state is facing-- a tragic day in the hoosier state-- five new deaths today-- two new deaths in vanderburgh county two deaths in knox-- and posey county is mourning their first covid-19 death.

In the bluegrass state-- the green river district is reporting forty eight new cases.

Both union and daviess county have fifteen confirmed cases.

Henderson has eight.

The last two days have been the highest record--for the seven county region since the beginning of the pandemic.

New this afternoon--in illinois-- lawrence county--sharing that it's now at a covid-19 warning level.

This--after seeing a major jump in positivity level in recent weeks.

Lawrence--not the only illinois county--with local health officials on the lookout.

As we first told you thursday on 44news at 9 and 10-- the wabash county health department --- expecting to share today-- they are also at a warning level--linked to their high positivity rate.

The community is gathering to help those in need-- tri-state food bank is hosting a food drive to collect donations for struggling families-- 44news reporter marisa patwa has more-- good afternoon.

Since 10 a.m.

This morning cars have been able to come out there and drop off non-perishable items and it's all thanks to a collaboration between the tri- state food bank and eastland mall.

The tri-state food bank is also taking safety into hand and is making the drive- thru contact free.

All drivers have to do is load up their donations into either cardboard boxes or plastic bags and place them in the trunk of their car.

And as they drive through the line, members of the national guard will collect those donations.

Youl never even have to get out of your car.

Some of the items most in need include peanut butter, soup, canned fruits and vegetables, rice, beans, canned mead such as tuna, beef, chicken or salmon, dry pasta and pasta sauce.

Officials with the tri-state food bank say just even one non- perishable item can save someone in need from going hungry.

"many of them have been furloughed or laid off with the shut down and they're still struggling with that loss of income.

And it all boils down to income and having enough money for your groceries and if people are struggling to pay their rent or medication then usually groceries are the first thing to go."

This series will last every week for the rest of september in honor of hunger action month.

But if you can donate today, make sure to stop by before 3 p.m.

(00:05:56 dr boucher)the longer they're in the hospital, especially in the icu, the greater their risk of getting a secondary infection.

Those can be severe and even fatal //.

So anything we can do to prevent that risk is very important for every patient.

A consumer group is looking into the issues.... the scientist who invented the n95 mask has come out of retirement to help fight the coronavirus.

Michael george introduces us-- to a man on a mission to help others.

(track 1)you may not know dr. peter tsai's name- but you probably know his invention.

25 years ago, he created the n95 respirator.

That's the highly coveted mask now considered the gold standard to prevent the coronavirus.

Dr. tsai is now retired- but when covid struck - he said he couldn't sit on the sidelines.

(sot dr. peter tsai/inventor of n95 mask ) "i felt responsible to help people."

(track 2)dr. tsai set up a makeshift lab in his tennessee home.

He used his oven to test whether heat can sterilize masks.

He used kitchen pots to prove that boiling masks isn't effective.

(sot dr. peter tsai/inventor of n95 mask ) i put the respirator into boiling water.

Then, the shape deformed.

It does not have a good tight fit on the edge anymore.

(track 3)he's running electrostatic fabric tests in his backyard- and he even set up an ozone generator in his van- searching for the best method to kill covid.

Michael george: what is it like to do these experiments in your kitchen or a van, instead of a lab?(sot dr. peter tsai/inventor of n95 mask )it does not make a difference for me to do experiment in my home or a lab.

(track 4)he sends all his research to mask manufacturers, hospitals, and virologists.

He saved lives once before with his invention (sot dr. peter tsai/inventor of n95 mask ) i just feel i need to help people.

(track 5)now, dr. tsai says he has a responsibility to try to do it again.

Michael george cbs news new york.

Dr. tsai says-- while he's working to find ways--to make masks reusable---the best solution is for the u-s to quickly increase mask production.

It is shaping up to be a pleasant start to september--with this upcoming labor day weekend-- looking great weather wise.

President trump--says nobody respects america's fallen military heroes more than he does.

(/gfx) (/wipe gfx)the trump campaign put out statements from several people on the trip denying the president made those comments.

(/gfx) (sot: president trump)"i would be willing to swear on anything that i never said that about our fallen heroes."

(track 3)the president did pull out of a planned visit to a cemetery to mark the end of world war one.

(sot: president trump)"the helicopter could not fly.

The reason it couldn't fly is because it was raining about as hard as i've ever seen it.

And on top of that it was very, very foggy.

(track 4)bad weather did not prevent german chancellor angela merkel and french president emmanuel macron from attending memorial services that day.

(standup: bofta yimam/cbs news/the white house) the atlantic article also says the president refused to offer support when senator john mccain passed away.

(track 5)the article states that when the vietnam veteran who'd been a prisoner of war died, the president told his senior staffãquote- "we're not going to support that loser's funeral."

(sot: president trump)"i disagreed with john mccain, but i still respected him."

(track 6) (gfx)democratic nominee joe biden issued a statement saying: "the sacrifice and bravery of our troops and their willingness to serve our nation should be honored."
