"albert birla" Discussed on The News & Why It Matters

"Oh there we are. We're just on television. I guess i'll stop talking about my personal pfizer. Ceo albert birla says that people will likely need to take a third dose of a covid nineteen vaccine within twelve months of getting fully vaccinated and that many may need annual vaccinations against the virus. Which i think for anyone who was paying attention They probably saw this coming. Because that's what people do for the flu but it is very difficult to square with the whole idea that we cannot get all of our liberties back until everyone is fully vaccinated because if the vaccines wayne and you have to get an annual vaccine. When does that liberty. When does that freedom really kick in. Because i gotta tell you it has been a really really long fifteen days. Just spread their worse hearings on capitol hill yesterday Just to kinda throw into this topic. Because i want to get your thoughts on. What the pfizer. Ceo said. But i also wanna get your thoughts on jim jordan grilling anthony fauci asking him. When is it ever going to be enough. When do americans get their liberties back. Are you even concerned with. I don't know these thing called liberties and freedoms watch your written statement. You say now is not the time to pull back. On masking physical distancing and avoiding congregate settings. When is the time window. Americans get their freedom back. Can you put your microphone when we get the level of infection in this country. Low enough that it is not a really high. What is low enough. Give me a number. We had fifteen days to slow. The spread turned into one year of loss liberty. What metrics what measures what has to happen before. Americans get more freedoms my message guys from jordan is to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can to get the level of infection this this country low that it is no longer a threat that is win and i believe when that happens you will see what determines when. I'm sorry what what measure. I mean we just gonna continue this forever windows windows. No do we get to the point. What measure what standard. What objective outcome do we have to reach before before americans get their liberty and freedom. You know you're indicating liberty and freedom. I look at it as a public health. Measure to prevent people from dying and going to the house. You don't think. Americans liberties have been threatened. Last dr fauci. They've been assaulted their liberties ab i. Don't look at this as liberty thing. Congressman music shot thinking of people's liberties. But i mean it is. It's so frustrating. You know we've got this okay. You're going to need likely a another covid vaccine dose. Okay you've got anthony fauci who apparently runs the world. I didn't realize that he we elected him to make these decisions Of course. I won't get into who we elected but not we but not you guys talk about the most popular president as our frontal schaefer likes to point out. Most popular. president of all history is what we're to be told But anyway i digress. When when do we get those back. Because he's not giving a metric. He's not he's just saying low enough that it's not a threat. When is it a threat zero because that's not happening. Yeah no that's not happening. and you know. Look the the main thing. I think he take out of. This is like they to all sorts. I think conservatives especially views all over the place on whether you want to get the vaccine whether you think it's a great thing what you think is a bad thing the bottom line though is you have if you have a principle of freedom. Then you don't have to worry. There's no reason to have our liberties taken away because everyone gets to make their own choice and assess their own risk and that is the right way to do it. I think the the only thing i would say about this is like we're in texas. Our lives are different than your life. If you happen to be in a in a country in another country like new york or california like these are totally different and like the and my i. don't you know felt. She says she says he's a he's a one track mind public health guy liberty issue to him but it's not his job to make it liberty issue. His job is to just say how terrible everything is and we have to get this zero. What the right approach with anthony boundaries to stop listening to anthony like texas has like florida has like a soap. A bunch georgia has elevated him to be the end. All be all of this conversation. It yeah credible but i think like when trump was president and fau she was there. There was a weird tension with red states. Who probably wanted to open up. But we're getting this from the trump administration. Let us not forget that you worked for trump trump could have fired him at any moment and he didn't now now that biden's in there with with you see red states empowered to go in and do what they want to do because now it's an asset to say no more masks now. It's an helps them. And that's why i think you've seen a lot of these red states open up in reality like the numbers have come down but like i don't think we're we're without risk of another flare up. I mean we haven't thirty percent of the country vaccinated. There's no reason to believe we couldn't have another flare up we could but like we're just now prioritizing liberty and that's what we should've been doing the entire time so my argument odd making the entire year that hey just let people decisions for themselves and assume whatever risk it is that they absolutely want to soem but apparently that mean that. I wanted to kill grandmother's old people. Chil dren black people This killing everybody. Just because i had that particular position very violent odd. Interestingly enough when it does come to anthony foul cheap his approach savings while the other public officials. They don't have a metric that's why they can't give you one they can will perpetually kicked down the road so they use these vague terms like threat low enough. Those don't have any meaning if you can actually identify what exactly we are looking for in order for it to be seen as something permissible. And that's the unfortunate thing that you know. People listening to these government officials. The ones know elected or not. That's the problem with the power. It is that they absolutely have is that you know we're expected to cling to whatever words and whether they can give you a metric or not or measure as far as when it is allowable inc for you to be able to be actual human being among the other people they don't have give you one and they and they live different lives in you..

"That is the salga by kakar. Who i learned about when the girl sent me a whatsapp that read quote somebody. My writing workshop sent me a link to his new album. And i thought you might be interested in hearing it and quote which i was and i hope that you intern are as well because i really like. It will listen to call car over the course of the hour. Mirim does not like it but now it's time for our first discussion. So miriam they say you can't be too rich or too thin but can you have too many vaccines apparently or possibly. We're not sure so. The world got some good news a week and a half ago. When pharmaceutical maker pfizer and a german partner company named beyond tech announced preliminary results of their phase three test of a vaccine against covid nineteen which was so far proving to be ninety percent. Effective stock markets surged across the globe. There were celebrations worldwide and us president. Donald trump called a press conference to claim credit for the vaccine and fetch that it was a cabal of democrats an anarchists who hushed up the results until after the elections. Dr anthony fauci america's top epidemiologist told. Cnn's wolf blitzer that pfizer's news is good all the way around here in israel. The news was received with some ambulance. So folks were happy that a vaccine seems to be on its way and if new reports were accurate that enough of it could be produced to inoculate half a billion people in two thousand and twenty one but folks were disappointed that it did not seem likely that any of those half billion would be. Israel is the reason for this. Is that last spring. The pharma companies working on vaccines began to sell options on future doses of vaccines extensively to cover the huge expenses of developing and testing. The vaccine. There was a bit of a bidding frenzy and when it was over. The world's wealthiest nations had dibs on. What would eventually be more than half of the maximum number of vaccine doses that would be produced if all five vaccines in the pipeline turned out to be successful according to the anti-poverty ngo oxfam. That means that. Nearly two-thirds of the world's population will not have a vaccine until at least twenty twenty two best case scenario. Also the doses are being priced high about thirty five dollars a dose for most of the world while significantly cheaper in america israel is among the world's wealthy nations and in the spring a special committee in the ministry of health decided in the end to buy vaccine futures from an american and swiss pharma. Company named moderna. Now one reason for the choice is that modernists chief. Medical officer is in israeli doctor named tiles. He's quite impressive. Some might even describe him as dreamy. Dreamy lake a some. I said might like know for example It's just an objective fact. He's super dreamy and super educated. He got his md and phd from benching university. Where his dad martin's zacks was a legendary professor of pathology after negotiations we up israel bought seventy one million dollars worth of vaccine options which is roughly a third of the entire budget. The government had stuffed in its mattress to pay for a vaccine. That was a lot of money to bet but then again you know no thanks tiles axes really dreaming so that was all well and good until last week when pfizer announced. It's good news and we had no dibs on any of its vaccine. This was a major bummer. Especially because some of us might die as a result of having bet on the wrong pharma company. Oy but prime minister. Netanyahu has run three election campaigns in the past two years emphasizing his excellent ties with world leaders sprung into action sending representatives to pfizer. He quickly got on the horn himself to hammer out a deal with president of pfizer albert. Birla a greek veterinarian who studied at aristotle university where presumably the fraternities have names like a f- a pk. Get it right. i digress. We got it. Only some of the details of the pfizer deals are known that the cost per vaccine is very high. That pfizer has the right not to supply the vaccine without paying a penalty that if the vaccine fails it's phase three trial. Israel will still fork over a pile of dough and at the maximum number of vaccine units. Israel may receive is eight million which is enough for four million vaccinations which would cover for ten israelis between the pfizer. Deal in the moderna deal. Israel has now spent one hundred and twenty million of its two hundred ninety five million total vaccine budget but still a deal was struck. Netanyahu said that because of his deal with pfizer it was a great day for israel and added that the first pfizer. Vaccines should arrive by january. Almost immediately the question arose is the deal a good thing. This question became all the more vexing this week. When moderna made the happy announcement that its vaccine appears to be ninety. Four point five percent effective. That's better than pfizer's ninety percent effectiveness but don't worry. Yesterday is pfizer outdid. Moderna claiming expecting was ninety five percent effective and yet whereas the pfizer vaccine needs to be stored and transported at an icy minus seventy degrees celsius. The moderna vaccine can be kept at a more reasonable minus twenty degrees celsius close to a standard home. Freezer setting all things considered the moderna vaccine is kind of like the visor. One only a little better in every way and we got rights to the bone derna vaccine for much cheaper than the pfizer one. What's more it turns out that the pfizer and moderna vaccines are very similar. They are both what are called m. r. n. a. vaccines using an identical protein. On the day that pfizer announced. Its happy result. Dr anthony fao. She told wolf blitzer that if they're vaccine is good then moderna is almost sure to be good to which means that. If prime minister netanyahu had just played it cool then we would have saved something like fifty million dollars in our vaccine budget which we could have used say to speed delivery of the vaccine that said though it is very possible that the pfizer vaccine will arrive. Weeks perhaps more before the moderna vaccine. So there's that all of which leads to our question did prime minister. Netanyahu do the right thing to rush to cut an expensive deal with albert birla advisor or was the deal. Just very expensive.

Here's Fizer CEO Albert Birla Well, his year $50 million after $15 million is which means 25 million people, so this year will be limited so because it was research there, Connecticut is expected to initially received doses to vaccinate about 250,000 people. A priority for the first doses will go to healthcare workers and then seniors, the president questioning the timing of Pfizer's announcement. Trump believes the news that the vaccine is 90% effective was held until after the election to hurt Him. You said Visor didn't have the courage to announce it before the election, adding the FDA and Democrats didn't want him to have a vaccine win.

"And that takes a minute although this vaccine is being made much quicker than any vaccine history the the face three trial that that these vaccines are being held to it is is is typical of what happens with vaccines. That's not to say, we couldn't have rushed this part. But we aren't at least not so far because when President Donald Trump suggested, it would be rushed that he wanted to be rushed scientists and doctors like Paul off it began stating publicly that they were concerned. Started, saying in interviews that we shouldn't allow the president or any politician to pressure drug companies to put out a vaccine before it's ready. Dr Fouled she and others who advised the president had to counter his declarations and clarify the position of the US government and it was around that time that these polls came out showing the general public was far more hesitant to vaccinate than anyone thought they would be. which made for a sort of click bache headlines suggesting that maybe in the strange political landscape, full of conspiracy theories, some of them supported in re tweeted by the president. A world now populated by anti massacres who hold rallies to express their anger and discontent. Marketplace of ideas where people who believe? Bill. Gates is trying to take over the planet by creating vaccine that when it goes mandatory will scramble your brain. All that. Well it. Seemed like, Oh, no half of the country might be about to go full ANTIBAC- Sir and that was my fear I have to admit that. When I asked Paul off at about these polls that was what I was wanting to stand. What did he think? And when I asked him about this. Finding that a third to one, half the public wasn't currently willing to get a vaccine. He told me something that completely surprised me. I asked this. What did you think these polls and he said I, think I would have been one of the ones I said I wouldn't get it. Here's why say that number one I want to see the data I I wanna see the data to make sure that in my age group over sixty five age group that this vaccine has been adequately tested that there's been representative subgroup in those original trials and that it induces an immune response which was protected because often people who are older don't develop as good of an immune response either as as vigorously as long as I'd like to know that. Too I'm a little nervous right now about about the FDA the FDA approved through emergency use authorization hydroxy Clark went which they shouldn't have done. I, mean they were pressured by the administration to do that they allowed it to happen when very quickly found out that not only did it not work to treat or prevent a covid nineteen it caused cardiac arrhythmias. Artery is in one of every ten people. Got It. So so I I, I would my response to that would be I would see the data's when people ask that question and CNN did poet it was even more depressing where about half of the American said, they wouldn't get the vaccine. It's really not the right question because you're asking what people whether they get theoretical vaccine. I mean the real question is, would you get a vaccine? That has this level of efficacy for this length of time. Would you get this vaccine and knowing it's been in twenty thousand people? Everybody should be skeptical about anything they put in their body including, and so they they they should should put the you know the the the the FDA in a position of explaining what exactly know about this vaccine. What you don't know before you're being asked to get it with trump saying one thing and dr saying another about something that right here on this show just took US twenty minutes to unpack off. It said it made sense to him that people pulled right now would be hesitant especially if you don't particularly like or trust the current administration in about half of the country feels that way. Especially right now, right. Before an election where people's motives are in question. Now, that's not to say that people should not get vaccine that's gone through all the proper testing. Yes please do get this vaccine is just off it and others were worried a few weeks back that such a rushed vaccine might be a possibility and so he wrote an op Ed. The New York, times saying that asking drug manufacturers not to allow themselves to be bullied and I. think that's why it's so important to be transparent honest about this as you can and and that's one thing that does worry me I. MEAN doctors, equal, Ezekiel Emanuel and I wrote an op Ed about this New York Times you know, let these face retrials go to completion. Don't don't be bullied by or don't be influenced by the fact that elections coming up at the beginning of November and you want to sort of make sure that you get a bump before before that and at least vaccines before they're ready or the you're influenced by what happens in China or Russia or the United Kingdom to release if they released their vaccine earlier to release your vaccine before your vaccines before they've been adequately tested because then you play. Right into the hands of the Anti Vaccine People, and then you really do give them in from an emmy they really don't have ammunition. Now I mean vaccine arguably the best test, the things we put into our body and anytime people have concerns about maxine even if they're biologically implausible vaccines cause autism or diabetes or whatever studies are done to answer those questions. So we've been very good about this and don't don't play into their hands by releasing any vaccines before they're really ready to be released. So that is what worries me a little and you really have to hand it to Dr. Off It here because after that op ED, the manufacturers who were part of operation. Warp speed, which is the US government's name for this highly funded highly accelerator project published a formal pledge to all the major news organizations stating to the public that they absolutely would not Semitic vaccine for FDA review until they completed the proper phases, the CEO of Pfizer Albert Birla he said this quote with increasing public concerns about the processes that we're using to develop these vaccines and even more importantly the processes that will be used to evaluate vaccines.

"I told you about him the other day. The FDA commissioner also offered reassurances that the agency Well based vaccine decisions on Lee on science and that politics, he made a statement that was misinterpreted. I was one of that misinterpreted it that I was straightened out on the same day that he said the way that it was reported Is that the FDA commissioner said that he would be willing to release a vaccine prior to the end of the face retesting. What was left out. From that was, he would only do it in like gigantic life or death, emergency situations and on Lee, but for a handful of people And it was his way of saying, I'm probably not going to do it until the testing is done, But bear with me. But the last time there was an NPR PBS pole about you know who would be those ofyou and your willingness to take the vaccine on or not 35% Responding. That poll said No. Lighten about 98% of my impromptu poll said No. Nullifies our CEO. His name is Albert Birla. He reiterated yesterday on NBC that his company's vaccine Could have seen results from the phase three trial by the end of October. And he's saying that has nothing to do with pressure from the president. By the end of October is certainly before the election. Now you're thinking. Ah, yeah, right. Ah! Here's another guy that's in the back pocket. A. You know who Why don't you check out who the CEO Albert Borland voted for in the last presidential election. And then get back to me. Get back to me on that. So these thieves, CEOs from the AstraZeneca's and the visors of bitterness and all that they're not going to cut anything lose because you know me. The lawsuit's just imagine. Imagine. The litigation. If it leaked out and somebody indeed, one of these companies did jump the gun and then somebody got sick. You know? Um Of course, they're going to be more cautious than anybody. They're going to be a hell of a lot more cautious in the American government. And that's good. So I mean, that's that's that's all good news on vaccines. All good news. You know, we continue to look at the stories. At least I do because I'm interested in this stuff. The intelligence stories about how Iran, China and Russia Apparently have all come together now, and we suspected this the other day when Devon was on and maybe we'll talk about it a little bit today when he joins us at noon, But now it's pretty much official. These three countries who are our enemies hate us with a passion. It's not hard to sort out. Isn't Iran China? Russia. I have joined together. In their hacking of American and British companies on the vaccine. And as one doctor was saying with one other studies and not relevant as to which one it wass, So I'm not going to tell you even though I know He's kind of like, Who cares. Who cares because it's all for mankind. Let him take the information. This is intellectual property that needs to be shared The fact that the three of them the Big three Madonna, AstraZeneca and Pfizer all came together in this joint press conference about saying. Hey, this stuff is going to be safe. Let's you know right now that they're all doing the right thing, thinking the right thing and probably will do the right thing You know, at the end of the rainbow whenever we get to that point, when we do indeed have a vaccine. And let's all remember. You know, we're not. We're not coming up with a regular vaccine here. We don't have any corona virus vaccines. This is all new stuff. New stuff, which you know circles back to that argument the other day that we're able to do this so fast, apparently, if indeed we do get it done very quickly. Why haven't we been able to do it with with AIDS and cancer? I mean, these are going to be Serious bomb throwing questions. From the advocates of those two diseases that once you know they want action. I have wanted action for decades. But this comes along and it's different than anything else that we've dealt with. And all of a sudden it becomes the big giant top priority and we developed a vaccine for it. It just goes to show you that we can When all the great minds come together and we put our minds to it. You know it can be done. So maybe we have learned from the development of this particular vaccine for the growing a virus that there are ways to, um, apply this to finding a cure or a vaccine for cancer and AIDS. Wouldn't it be amazing if we had a cancer vaccine? Oh, my good, but there's so many different kinds of cancer.
