I got to touch on what's happening in the west that he continues their excessive heat warnings up for several states including. Nearly all of California only slight cooling happening as we get towards Sunday and Monday unprecedented heat wave continues. Trevor. Wanted to keep an eye on rob Marciano thank you. And on the other major news this Friday night the corona virus in the growing concern about the delta variant first seen in India. Now found in at least 45 US states experts fear that virus could mutate even more to evade our vaccines. ABC's Stephanie Ramos brings us this report. With a growing threat from the delta variant president Biden today urging Americans to debt fully vaccinated. It's a very good as more easily transmissible. Potentially deadlier. And particularly dangerous for young people. 300 million shots have been administered in the first 150. Days of Biden's presidency but at the current pace the country is less likely to reach his July 4 goal. One shot for 70% of adults so far 65%. Of adults have gotten shot. The president asked if the delta variant could force new lock downs. I don't think so because so many people have already been vaccinated but with the dollar variant can cause more people to die in areas where people have not been vaccinated. The CDC director today warned it could soon become the dominant strain. As viruses mutate they do so I'm with some advantage to the virus one of those advantages could be that it invades our vaccines and that's really what we're actively trying to prevent. Last year at southwest Missouri saw a spike in Kobe cases after these Memorial Day celebrations. The state now has the highest percentage of delta bearing cases in the country. It's the dominant strain in Springfield where some hospitals are running low on Bennett's. We're gonna seem both important thirty otherwise healthy unvaccinated. Some who saw last year there were some other underlying mission now. Adding to the challenge thirty million Americans still need they're second vaccine dose something experts say is critical for protection against the delta variant. Usually worn shot gives you pretty high level of protection. But not with the delta very well we've seen with the delta variant. Is it if you only gotten one chocolate certifies Iraq seemed you'll only have about 3035%. Protection and obviously that's way too little. And Stephanie now joins us from Yankee Stadium which will be at full capacity for the first time since the pandemic would no vaccination card required no vaccinated only sections anymore. Stephanie I wanna go back to president Biden's goal of getting 70% of adults with at least one shot just how far behind are we in hitting that target. Walter Everett seems likely the Biden administration and that may miss their goal on average about 387. Thousand adults are getting their first shot every day but to reach the president's pull that number would need to more than double. To 806000. Adults every day between now and July 4. Trevor. We've come a long way but still. We have to keep going Stephanie were Hamas thanks to you. And for more on this part of the delta variant in the state of vaccinations in the US let's bring in doctor Darian Sutton an emergency medicine physician and an ABC news medical contributor. Doctor Sutton thank you for joining us president Biden today in his speech while he was celebrating largely. He did also warn about the spread of the delta variant of we know the CDC has called it a variant of concern. Can you just explain to our viewers why this particular strain is so concerning especially for people who are unvaccinated. What we have seen is that this Barry and was first identified in India and now is dominant in the UK. Where for example in places like England and it has been associated 230%. Increase aces fourteen date sheets were. We're seeing right now and now in the US it's associated with approximately 10%. Of new cases now this is concerned because there has been shown to be more transmissible. And in some there's more severe in terms of symptoms and outcomes but we're still learning beginning or trying to understand. Whether or not this parent causing severe outcomes in terms deliberations. And desks. The reason why we need a closer pensions and this is because there may threaten the work that we had done so far to be quite honest with you hamburger vaccines that we're putting out there and making sure that people are protected against the virus. Another and our incentive really for adults to get their shot but on that point given this variance high rate of transit disability. Should there be particular concern for parents with children who aren't yet old enough to be vaccinated did they need to be taking extra precautions now. Right now what we know is that according to the American academy yeah its parent and over two million cases of could be associated with children. I'm in that has been associated with more than 300 deaths. Now that equates to approximately zero point 01%. Risk of death of those children to get over it and he. Although that percent is low of course every number counts each number represents. A missing the at a breakfast table at a camera that is the morning we want to prevent that's much of my personal advice to parents are or children who cannot backs needed to get back to Washington. I rang mask and a boarding crowded space news. Not yet safe to return to life for everyone and we have doctor also seen those reports of cases of my L card that is our heart inflammation that are showing up in some adolescents who had taken the vaccine and we don't wanna be alarmist we know this is a very small portion of millions of Americans who have been vaccinated. But they are looking into it and if there is a link. A frequent. Criticism of the vaccine that we hear from people who might be has a sense. Is that we don't yet fully know the long term potential impacts of these vaccines. Do is that a reason for concern due to benefit still outweigh everything it would what do we need to know about that. Adding that the benefits of vaccines stole what outweigh any possible risks that we are seeing so what we're seeing in these cases of my card that is which is simply an inflammation of the heart muscle that very hard data which is an inflammation around a good lighting around the hearts pristine I'll be over seven million children and adolescents have gotten vaccinated a small number are coming in the east on Adams majority of which are always that seem to have these symptoms after their second dose. Now again this number is small but it's an important signal to pay attention here but I want to get there some more context habits so much better since an inclination that we see in the heart muscle that is associated were many viral illnesses. Many of which include Kobe nineteen. And so what I try to explain or answer is that even risked a nineteen filed when is this possible. Milder Smart risk associated with these vaccines and it's important that we take that into consideration when making the decision to get back natives on because I also want to advise parents that meeting comes with its own Briscoe possibility it won't turn them from the associated decoded the white and 1000 children who get more inflammatory and and syndrome associated obit. I don't know what's preventing any hospital in recent. All locked and outcomes associated with Kobe so at. At the end the risk of Cody far outweighs any risks that we concede to you vaccines. And the history and that's the technology behind the backseat and studied over decades my card that is is treatable and usually temporary also right. Yes it actually in the study with the American academy of pediatrics they quit at a study specifically looking at seven children who happen to have my better after their vaccinations. All seven were treated with knots or order anti inflammatory medications commonly donors -- open and they seem to have resolved without issue that's really the issue. And also real quick doctor big picture here. We've now hit 300 million doses administered sends president Biden took office I do think he is correct that. We hit that number faster than a lot of people thought we would. At the same time we will likely fall short of president Biden's goal of 70% of Americans having at least one dose by the fourth of July week. Came out of the gate in a hurry. We might be running out of gas. Overall are we still in good position as a country at a vaccination rate are we still vulnerable how should Americans be feeling right now. I think we're in a good position I think that we should be proud of the work we have done and although we are winning in this race against hope that you shouldn't simply get up and Oregon are on I think you have more work to do. And we can just take a moment to reflect our achievements and so good about that while still knowing that there is work being done doctor Gary inside and thanks to you we appreciate your time. Thank you. Next tool horrifying scene on a street in New York City gunman chasing another man on a crowded sidewalk in opening fire just inches from children's tonight the NYPD asking for the public's help to find that shooter and his accomplice.

And this is an election that could have major consequences for the U west's including on the fate of the renegotiation. Of the Iran nuclear deal but Iran has also grappling with its own difficult issues including a crippled economy. And apathy over this election that many view as already decided. ABC's chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz has been on the ground talking to voters into rock. In came run tonight people winding up to cast their ballots to choose who'll be Iran's next president. Mr. right here should that he can stand up. War at the people and I person is necessary thing. But for many you're running it's this election feels predetermined. Polls predicting about 60%. Of Iran aliens will not sure what to vote. I don't think that these Israeli election marred the opening Leon blunt brought harm his high action. Hardliner Abraham right EC is the front runner and anticipated. Wiener to replace Iran's current president Hassan reclining. There were more than 500 candidates it wanted to run for president. But the majority of them were disqualified.

The Biden administration has yet to remove rice he from the sanctions list. And with the Iran nuclear deal still hanging in the balance sanctions have yet to be lifted on Iran.

Iran's badly crippled economy is on the ballot and voters are desperate for relief. Rice he says he supports the nuclear deal which could bring economic benefits. But his anti western feelings could make it harder to get a longer and tougher deal which president Biden won't like. It's crazy. Is elected and what will the relationship came with the west do you think they didn't get the sanctions lifted. I think it's their right seeds. Pledged towards the nation in his. Speech is one that we're not going to be looking towards the west. OK we will be more than happy if they leave all of this action movie more than happy to join back. Into the deal and we are more than happy to you cooperate within with the international community but.

Iran's next president will undoubtedly face the challenge of convincing Iran's youth stat they still have a future of this country. The winner of the presidential race will officially be announced tomorrow but he does not take office for several months and there is no way a new nuclear deal will be signed before that Trevor.

But first used a cart ratings wars essential workers who helped American Stacy during the pandemic. Tonight you'll hear from some who were calling out the company's ratings system saying it costs them hundreds of dollars. Oh. We turn now to the popular grocery delivery act instant cart that's been a lifeline for many of us during the pandemic. Tonight we hear from some of the workers known as instant cart shoppers who were calling out the company's rating system saying a less than perfect rating can cost them hundreds of dollars ABC's fade to blue bay explains. Add to how. The Kobe pandemic the last thing DO Oracle wanted to do was to step inside a grocery store or so sheets too is to cart. A phone app allowing her to get all the groceries without ever leaving her home it's just kind of been willing eager even now in Albany. Inches and it's easier to get her he's done during the week and I didn't and in weekend when it in my house. And it's just a core shoppers like a hit so far on the other end making it possible. Walking the store aisles peaking the items and delivering them write to the customer's doorstep the payoff for this film maker flexible hours and quick cash. I felt like I found a hat to our economy and I'm like well you don't have to working nine to five when did things begin to change. At holly the most inconvenient aren't. We in the month I signed my new leads I got my purse or. According to mr. cart a shoppers rating is an average of the last 100 deliveries made and shoppers with higher readings gift first today at sun delivery batches. Meaning anything less than a perfect score and the badgers you can access could lead to lower paying. Some critics call it ratings prison. I wasn't seeing reporters that man's black and Eads humans aren't Briggs was ordered earth Q we. You have like a three point nine jeans yeah you're really gets spewed in Europe or point 86 average driver year. Probably a good driver I just assumed it was like that. A head says that one Forestar reading cost him hundreds of dollars in earnings each week. Verse is making my fiftieth day Alan may remain you know seven the eighty. Or you'll see less batch is coming in. So Williams has been an east of course shopper for two years recently more and more based on parts shoppers have been speaking out. Thousands of people also signing on to online petitions calling crystal card to immediately change how the ratings are calculated. The biggest frustrations shoppers saying sometimes not even getting an explanation about what B did to deserve it the system mostly assuming the customer's always right. And sometimes getting a bad reading for circumstances beyond their control like a store not having an item the customer wants. I'm out here has when I'm trying to provide good customer surveys. Hands if it's not my father's not adamant side can again I don't have control if the tomatoes are bad. And Sunday out of bananas are back. It's winning twenty as the pandemic was raging its course says it's suspended the rating system. But it's back to possibly rewarding the hardest working shoppers in weeding out those who don't always get you ranked. Clinical and forensic near a psychologist doctor Judy host has the negative impact of Reading systems can be detrimental to one's mental health and behavior. I think that that whole can be enormous especially because you feel like you have to live and die by this ratings has done and that can cause a person to me even do some really unsafe behaviors like driving really fast and a radically different and deliver quickly or on time. And I can get it also makes it much harder for them to actually focus on doing their job and equality way. This accord declined our request for a new new deal but in an email to ABC news the company says that they're also hearing from shoppers about the rating system and quote we're. Always working to provide a consist only fair and reliable experience for shoppers. And we look forward to continuing to evolve our systems and process he's to deliver the best offering for shoppers. The company points to measures like deleting a shoppers worst reading after 100 deliveries saying that it. Such a small margin. Or error and of course you strike her with this job but work flawed human beings just like leaping and like there's gonna be error along the way. It it and results in you losing your income. If the customer doesn't respond any need to replace a I had. And you don't you can't stay in the store for an hour waiting for customers to respond in some customers are upset what that so then I'll give you a lower rating. This court assist some of those issues are resolved in favor of the shopper. And better recent survey shows 75% of shoppers Spielberg customer rating system is fair. Some shoppers however. Have resorted to emotional police begging customers to with ho tips. Instead of leaving a reading that could haunt them for weeks so at some point it financially just in start making sense brain. Exactly earlier he had has since left behalf and. As I do you believe there should be some way it's new. Holds shoppers accountable and you need filter out any yards and we're redeemer who are we.
