Cancer discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

You have cancer you have occasionally about there's no other place to be but this is not like that kind of it's not it doesn't require actually sort of high tech the best thing the medical care system can do it sort of is more low tech in some ways it requires capacity requires you know access to everyone I think that's what we're seeing here is that it does break down those kind of areas we may have a weakness in public health versus what we might because private health versus your individual patients and I think that's going to cost us a lot the response to this it might get worse in other parts of the country when your kids are overwhelmed right now but if you look at sort of hospital beds per person in a lot of other parts of the country are very concerned about what will happen if it gets stuck right battles were yeah you know it's confounding to this this virus is confounding and that you know some people get infected and they have barely any symptoms summer infected don't have any symptoms at all they go around about their lives as some people we don't know yet whether you can be infected more than once you know and then some people who are it's not just old people it's some were very young and healthy get it and bam they're gone it really really isn't there so much we still don't know about this and we're we're kind of leading blind but not without the information really what what you know in terms of of knowing the full extent of this you know if we could test people at a much higher level we could go senses that how many people are out there who were sick especially large showing symptoms but might still be infectious that's the information I really need and and we're we're we're wrapping that up but well behind the eight ball around it and as a result we're making decisions without a full understanding as to the extent of this outbreak here in the US and elsewhere as well we're going to the wildcard line Joseph in Boston hi Joseph you're on with Brian Walsh Hey there George good morning thank you for taking my call I haven't talked to in awhile Brian I'm seventy three and I have a few questions and a couple comments I have no family I have to go out but my first thing is your book and audio for the blind and George no we had a guest on Dr Wallich you know the pharmacist and I have to agree with him I don't think we should shut down the country I really don't I think this is man made that's another issue I think we should let it rise course and take care of it news cleaning methods you know there's all sorts of UV George you know but behind the scenes like in submarines have air scrubbers and I think if we did this you can buy products that really help I think it would go away much quicker because so many people may never could never come back for their jobs and I I do know that I don't know how right the statistics are you get all sorts of you know things like one of the guests said the herd mentality I think the media is doing a lot of fear I mean I don't know why it happened but this is not much we can do about it now but I do agree with George and Dr Paul and Ron Paul and pharmacist Ben Fuchs we should take precautions but you don't shut down the country like your takes on both of your hope your book is an audio for the blind thank you guys very much but it is it is an audio so you hear you can you can order it that way as well you can hear me read introduction to thank for not arrested but that some people do that but you know I completely understand what you're saying in terms of the dilemma we face you know the damage this response is gonna do economically is going to be incredible you know it that would worsen an already we'll see only continue I guess what I would say is that I think you know if we if we allow this to just if we essentially don't shut down the country don't do the trick to some thing that we're doing now in much of the country I really worried that it will break out in a much wider wedding and it will result in a lot of people dying and I don't need you know tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands perhaps north of of not the millions and your understand their knock on effects that to to hustle systems completely overloaded with faculty in nineteen patients you can't handle anyone else so you will have few people dying of other conditions or otherwise preventable we'll see people dying accidents because they can't get ambulances that can get into hospitals all these sort of knock on effects and that would have a tremendous economic effect as well people are afraid to go to work even if their work was reopened they may not go you know we we perceive that increased in the future and and I I just you know it's it's as bad as what we're experiencing right now hopefully we can mitigate this with some of the stimulus packages and and what we're doing right now you know knows what you know if you if people die that those lives aren't your people can get jobs that we can recover quickly someone died but that that for them so hopefully I think that's what we need to do and I think you know we don't really have much choice locally and we need to do all we can to help the people who have lost their jobs turnarounds thousand possible but in the day you know what you think public help trump the over over director com investors who you know is so many unknowns about the future how much this will change us it will change us in so many profound ways I mean I can see people never want to go to a concert again are worried about going to a movie you being in a crowd of any kind people who are now working at home suddenly discover Hey I could do this all the time you know there were gonna be PhD doctoral theses written about this books and sociologists will have a field day I'm sure there are profound effects now were because of of forced isolation people who are alone and the ag marriages that end up breaking up because that they find out they can't really get along together all the time I there's a lot to bite to chew on here absolutely I think it's gonna work so reluctant to risk being already you mentioned remote work that's going definitely grow in the future it might be education as well you know I think you'll see a lot more about education using the internet and that kind of work going forward in particular because you know and then I wonder about you know younger chip children too as well you know they will grow up this will be their nine eleven but even more so I think it's our national you know I I wonder about will change and going for the start of real fear of public space perhaps you know into an intentionally in China in the epicenter of this outbreak you know there are cases of agoraphobia people afraid to leave their house even once they're allowed to because of the finances streaming from matic at the trauma we're all going through together in different ways in different stages east of the Rockies dug in New Jersey hi Doug good morning yes good morning gentlemen I'll tell you mine okay I we had a question here I haven't heard brought up yet right now here in east coast were inspiring it's starting to get warmer and then about another month we're gonna have mosquitoes ticks and fleas which well we're pretty big on here on the east coast in fact miss heat is probably our state bird and I was kind of curious is there a chance of transmission like maybe a Mezquita biting somebody who has it and then biting somebody else could there be a transmission there by any chance of anybody thought about this yet yeah I haven't I haven't heard that considered yet I I don't you know I don't think that would be the case because I think you know like when you have like malaria you know it if the parents are you look different spreading from from one to the other it's often from animals as well you know I can't rule it out you know I think the the bigger thing would be open for actually with the warmer weather is but that would curb the transmission of the virus and we see this with with with a lot of other respiratory diseases when the weather gets warmer it doesn't spread as easily we don't always know why that's the case sometimes imperious you know once summers out people are outside more than you're in small spaces the way you are in the winter time east coast north but the one thing some buyers to just replicate slower when it gets warmer so you know we should really hope that's the case we don't know for sure yet but that would be a huge help in terms of our early slow this thing down thanks for the call we're going to the first time caller line John here at about a welcome to the program John you're on with Ryan Walsh thank you much a great program I can't wait to you but my question is this I got this is ridiculous lead early early February late January I was sick for about four days I didn't know what was it in at that time it was a combination of the flu and a cold in the difficulty resolving but my question is we know to be the only thing I see is different about this particular virus is that the media coverage is so extensive when in reality about ninety percent what what we know about it is that about ninety percent or a huge percentage of the people that get it will recover from it and the the the the the the sector of the population that is is in great danger the the most successful company in the world so for country in the world that has dealt with this before South Korea and I listen to a program I think you're one of the program by politicos and they said that that bizzare wizard to that everybody there whether we got mapped the entire population to go on the street everybody has mass everybody had grows and the and the the voluntarily quarantined or ask people to quarantine especially those that are in the sixty seventy year old above and and the yeah and I didn't have to shut down the entire but the county because they told me that's what I'm saying what about that defeat it seems that we have a different access point it seems like about half of the population in America is very fear based so the answer and they also that same population thinks that somehow is difficult and it is that the are that it is and all okay alternative to shut down the entire country I don't think it is an okay alternative for more than a couple weeks because you know sooner or later the.
