S. and that's just too many to contact Tracy all of them so first of all that's why we're all locked down is so that the number of active cases goes down but this you mean those numbers do eventually drop you're right I mean trust is going to be so important and that's why this is going to come down to state and local governments governments the people deal with every day so for example Massachusetts is starting a statewide program to trace cover nineteen patients and their contacts they're gonna hire around a thousand people and train them up and then they're going to start treating people as soon as they can but does that mean that the country would be ready in a matter of a month or two to open up it's it's gonna be pretty tough I mean look first of all nationwide we're talking about hiring tens of thousands of people maybe even hundreds of thousands and contact tracing doesn't really require super specialized training you can train people have never done it before but those individuals also need to be plugged into a system that system has to include widespread and rapid testing so the tracers can call people before they go out and get other people sick it also needs to include like computer databases and things like that so that you know the tracers can work together and follow up on all these phone numbers and less about you need support for the sick and those who put into quarantine I mean if you're gonna tell people not to go to the grocery store for fourteen days you better have a plan for getting the groceries and you know you put this all together and we're talking about a huge national effort to me it's sort of like a Hoover dam or something governments I mean the government could fund this and there are plenty of people who need jobs right now so I mean it's possible we'll just have to see if it can happen is there any technology that's being worked on right now that could help with contractors and yeah well you know we have technology that we actually have in our pockets right now these brilliant devices called cell phones that you know hi trace our movements and can tell us where we've been and we've been in contact with and South Korea and China have been using cell phones to help with contractors and sometimes they've been pretty aggressive here in the U. S. there's concerns about privacy obviously the ACLU's race some of those Google and apple are working on ways that they can use the technology hopefully without causing privacy problems bottom line it's hard to imagine that tech won't play a role but it's not gonna be an apt that gets us out of this and her science correspondent Geoff Brumfiel thanks Jeff appreciate it we are now we're not gonna get a different perspective from professor crystal Watson a she is a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins center for health security along with her colleagues she has just published a report that outlines a national plan to ease social distancing through contact tracing she's here with more perspective thanks so much for being with us thank you very much so we've heard a lot from the White House about how the president would like to ease social distancing guidelines open up the economy in the next few weeks based on your team's assessment under what circumstances could we safely start to ease those guidelines yeah it's going to be a combination of the case reduction we want to see as an extended reduction in cases daily reported cases over time also that hospital bed capacity is increased that we can care for the patients safely that are that are presenting at hospitals testing we need to build up our testing capacity to identify every case and then we need to build the system for contact tracing all around the country so Jeff just outlined what contact tracing is can you explain what you're proposing what would that look like he had the US really needs to implement a robust and comprehensive system to identify all code nineteen cases and trays all of their close contacts of each identified case this is system is really necessary in order to reduce that burden on hospitals and ease that strict social distancing measures that we have in place right now and then that that helps us confidently make progress towards returning to work and school so this would how would this work I mean if someone has coded then you're you're reliant on that person to be able to communicate who they've been in contact with or you're relying on on those friends and acquaintances to self identified authorities yeah so it's a it's a combination of that and possibly the application of technology so public health does contact tracing all the time for other diseases so this is something that they know well but yeah you would ask a person who's been sick they have come into close contact with but we can also pair that with technologies to help identify people who have been in that the area of this person so we we heard the other countries have employed the south Korean particular used cell phone technology is just mentioned to identify track these movements but there are privacy concerns right I mean how would how would you implement a program like this while preserving Americans right to privacy right privacy is very important we need to make sure to address privacy concerns because we need the trust and help of of people in our communities to do this there are as as he said there are some technologies like Bluetooth that help preserve privacy they don't explicitly identify you so we can employ those technologies but I think people need to understand also that this is going to be important for your health so imagine that you were in the grocery store you were near somebody who is actively sick with cove in nineteen and then you receive it a text message a couple of weeks later possibly to say oh you might be expecting you might have been exposed I would want to receive that text message so I know what to do and what to look out for and I think we are going to have to accept some trade off some privacy to try and get this epidemic under control but privacy is obviously very important we should minimize any invasion of privacy to the extent we can of the throughout the pandemic the trump administration has been reluctant to make anything a matter of federal policy rightly instead leaving the response up to state governments what's at stake here at what could happen if something like this is left to the states without federal support I'm the states need to implement this along with local health departments that that is going to be their job but what we need from the federal government is planning guidance and technical support that is their job and they they need to do that coordination at the top level so we can it's a public health can do their job on the ground professor crystal Walton a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins center for health security we appreciate your perspective thank you so much thank you next we report on an industry that is not receiving federal help it is.

Teens Are Still Vaping Flavors, Thanks To New Disposable Vape Pens

"The trump administration's partial ban on flavored e cigarettes is in effect but there's still plenty of vaping sticks cartridges on the market in fact there's an array of disposable products that come in many appealing flavors and delivered just as much nicotine. Here's NPR's Alison Aubrey. If you've raised a teenager. You may not be surprised to learn that. Teenagers and young adults seemed to be a step ahead of regulators by the time the FDA announced new enforcement efforts and jewel had pulled most flavored pods from the market. Many teens had already moved on jewel as a product for teens is almost now old school. That's Meredith Berkman co-founder of pave parents against vaping e cigarettes. She says disposable products are the new thing and for now they're exempted from the FDA's enforcement efforts there called disposables because they're designed to be tossed out after one use and among those disposables which are the most popular. There's puff bar there stig. There's Vigo they're all exempt from that guidance. Go to get a reality check. I asked my own teenage son. If he'd heard about these disposables and he said Yeah. Like Puff Bar Matt Meyers of the Campaign for tobacco-free kids showed me how it works here. I'm picking up one of the newer products. It's called a puff bar. This one comes in pink lemonade. It's vape stick and it. Looks like a three inch long thumb drive and when you inhale it. It has a sweet sugary flavor bars and extremely popular product. That's Bonnie halpern filter. A developmental psychologist at Stanford. She says it's hard to know how many teens are using them but she points to a bag. Confiscated vape sticks and pens that a high school principal in northern California collected. Recently I laid out and you can see there. The majority of them are these disposable products they come in lots of flavors lots of colors and it's very attracted to youth and that's what we're seeing them using the most right now. They're easy to conceal. Have about three hundred puffs in them and contain the amount of nicotine found to three packs of cigarettes a lot of Nicotine Christine. Del navo directs the Center for Tobacco Studies at Rutgers University. She says given the survey data showing nearly one in four high school seniors has helped. The data do indicate that there are young high. School students are addicted to these products. She says the e cigarette industry has been very creative despite efforts by regulators to stop young people from vaping to bit of a game of whack a mole when policies are aimed at one particular product another product to kind of pop up to kind of fill the void there and as for all the newer flavors that cover up the harsh taste of nicotine mango ice pomegranate ice. You'll see the word lush used a lot. I'm not sure what lush tastes like Matt Meyers. As parents and others concerned should be aware of how easy it can be to buy vape sticks and e liquids despite the partial ban and age restrictions. Right now you can buy e liquids online often in in websites that are not really protected increasingly in convenience stores and gas stations narrative. Berkman of pave says her group and others offer online resources to help parents. Stay in the loop before you even sit down with your kid. You have to read up on. The latest products. Know what they look like. No what the Lingo is. Because the landscape is changing quickly. Allison Aubrey NPR news.

"The ticks range expands npr's alison aubrey reports one day last summer lars sterling took her doug governor for a walk on a trail near her house she lives in savannah park maryland later that evening she realized she'd been bitten by a tick i found it three or four inches to the left of my hip it bone and didn't think anything of it i just took it off and threw it away but about three weeks later she ate an italian style pork sausage for dinner and had a horrible reaction i would say it was probably six hours after i ate it it was in the middle of the night and i woke up covered in hives she was itching and scratching she felt lightheaded she also noticed stomach aches so she went to see an allergist he asked me did you change your detergent did you change anything in your diet and i said no and he said in the last month where you bitten by a tick and i said yes after a blood test the allergist told her she was allergic to red meat and maybe dairy too i thought it was completely crazy because i've eaten dairy and i've eaten red meat all my life her story is pretty typical of people who develop a red meat allergy after a tick bite says allergist scott commons he's an associate professor at unc chapel hill and he was among the first to identify the allergy in patients with tick bites about ten years ago he says back then there were just a few dozen known cases but now we're confident that the number is over five thousand at least in the us alone there are also cases in sweden germany and australia likely linked to other species of ticks now coming says in the us cases of moved beyond the southeast to new york maine and minnesota absolutely we're gonna find this continues to expand the reach of the tick is expanding and equally i think we have a blood test raising awareness and the word is getting out there's still a lot to learn about this allergy it's known as an alpha gal allergy alpha gallison's sugar that animals make including cows and pigs but we don't as humans we don't make this alpha gal sugar we all make an immune response to it so how does it tick bite 'cause as the allergy well it's possible that ticks inject alpha gal into people's bodies when they bite the ticks likely get it from feeding off wild animals such as mice or squirrels come and says it's also possible that ticks activate the response in another way whatever the tick is doing it seems that it's a very potent awakening for our immune system to produce antibodies and in this case it is antibodies to a very particular sugar in red meat as for laura sterling she now avoids all dairy and all red meat once i was told just stop eating it i was fine felt great allergies usually give their alpha gal patients epipens because reactions can be dangerous but the good news is that people can outgrow the allergy this is most likely to happen if they avoid further tick bites allison aubrey npr news all right when you're pregnant you know the doctors want you to get a few key vaccines and now the american college obstruct obstetricians and gynecologists is trying to make that a little bit easier for the first time it's put together a one page immunization guide for obese and midwives npr selena simmons duffin who happens to be pregnant at this very moment went to find out more the guide pulls together information about which shots pregnant women should skip which they can get an which they should definitely get the two and that should get category are the flu shot since the flu can be really dangerous for pregnant women and teed up the tetanus diphtheria protests vaccine would you have samuel you'll like it that's medical assistant kimberly johnson getting ready to give me teed up a few weeks ago at thirty weeks pregnant from spain the idea here is to protect newborns against pertussis or hooping cough people are like i never heard of who've been caused what's the big deal like why do we even have to worry about this that's dr laura riley she's the vice chair of obstetrics at massachusetts general hospital and helped write the.
