Automatic TRANSCRIPT

To two and thirteen ten. Kfi K. business is good Samaritans entertainers. We want to hear from you. Know Co now nine. Am to ten. Am on thirteen ten K. F. K. Road road soundtracks of our new normal of our lives. These two hey sprite. This gas prices dipping below two dollars in Colorado with a national average of about to a one but with the stay at home orders and a host of businesses and entertainment. Venues temporarily closing down shuttered. Not only throughout the state but across the country Dudakovic nineteen. Well there's really no place to go beyond the grocery store and other essential places of business and though I wish I could tell you different A second change in the months ahead as We're not going to get on the road again anytime soon. This as president trump yesterday in his press briefing says the corona virus peak in death rate is likely to happen in the next two weeks and extends those Social distancing guidelines through April thirtieth today was supposed to be the last day of slow the spread that fifteen days of national social distancing. But no yesterday he did. Extent extended until April thirtieth declaring that the peak in death rate and the Koran virus. Pandemic is likely to hit in two weeks saying that the federal government is extending its social distancing guidelines through Eh thirtieth This as he attempted to brace the nation for the possibility of one to two hundred thousand deaths as a result This in the United States as a result of Kovic nineteen all right. Let's all just calm down for one New York minute. Probably not a good term to use given the fact that New York is now the epicenter of covert nineteen but Lot OF CONCERNS OVER NEW ORLEANS. Louisiana This as a result of the numerous cases there but bottom line is this. You probably heard all the experts and all the CA- video it's on social media spouting about these enormous potential death rates basing their conclusions while leave the videos out of the equation here but the experts basing their conclusions on a number. I believe there are three primary models that they are using in order to estimate the number of potential deaths not only around the world but indeed in the United States. But you need to remember that you can't look at these numbers in a vacuum. Even had Anthony Fauci who I respect. But sometimes well gets little head of himself. Attempting this has if you saw the headlines on drudge over the weekend all the death rate could top two hundred thousand in the United States. Well I mean he was backpedaling. So hard during this presser yesterday. I thought he was going to pull a hamstring. Because once again you cannot look at the number of cases and magically determine because there's still so much they don't know about the corona virus about Cova nineteen. You just can't make that connection. You can't easily connect the DOTS and we're GONNA get into that. I've got a pretty good explanation about why you need to be cautious with those numbers. Because we're we're already experiencing enough anxiety as our lives have been upended over Cova. Nineteen right so once again. You cannot take those numbers in a vacuum because infection does not necessarily mean death eighty to eighty five percent of us who have the virus and my heart breaks for the thousands tens of thousands hundreds. Well we're over one hundred thousand but for those who have died as a result of being infected with this deadly disease but once again remember eighty to eighty five percent of us even if infected will recover. We'll get to that at six thirty five but President trump a very somber president trump saying the peak the highest point of death rates. Remember this is likely to hit in the United States in two weeks therefore we will be extending our guidelines to April thirtieth the social distancing guidelines to slow the spread now in a response to a question at the briefing. Dr Anthony Fouled. She is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious. Diseases reiterated his estimate from earlier that it remained possible possible that one hundred thousand to two hundred thousand people could die in the United States but once again he also backed off that to some degrees saying yeah. What we're looking at here is worse. Case SCENARIO BOLSTERING. The need for those stay at home. Orders though social distancing orders. Because if you look at New York alone. Ever since the governor there issued those orders social distancing orders in New York. I believe it was March twenty second. Don't quote me on that but it's interesting if you look at a graph at the spread before he issued those orders. Covert nineteen was spreading at a rate of a seventy-three percent since then it has dropped to thirteen percent. You do the math in New York. You do the math. And tell me that. Social distancing isn't effective. All right let's Let's drill down through the numbers and see if we can sort out Some of the modeling coming up at six thirty five six thirty now thirteen ten. Kfi Thirteen Ten K. K. Preps RADIO IS NORTHERN. Colorado's home for the past high school coverage hey northern Colorado. You're listening to mornings with Gail. Stick around for me.
