Chauvin Trial: Prosecution Quizzes Defense Witness Over Carbon Monoxide Claim

"Minister. No jury has heard a second day of testimony from defense witnesses and the Derrick showman murder trial. She opens. Attorneys hope to undermine the prosecution's claim that their client killed George Floyd by kneeling on Floyd's neck for over nine minutes. As NPR's Walter Ray Watson reports. One defense witness offered several explanations for Floyd's death attorney Eric Nelson as Dr David Fowler, a former chief medical examiner about the cause of George Floyd's death last May. Fowler asserted. Many causes among them an irregular heart rhythm, the ingestion of opioids and the inhaling of carbon monoxide from a squad car close to where police restrained Floyd. Fowler maintained. Floyd's death by professional standard was undetermined is when you've got so many conflicting, different potential mechanisms of death that could lead to Yesterday for the manner is not clear.

"Clot from the vaccine is less than your chance of being murdered within the next three months, which you hope is a very, very, very, very unlikely thing indeed. And I think this is you know the challenge we askew Mons have a really difficult time. Interpreting risks, and we're now in a situation to where we're having to make trade offs in risks. And so when it's hard to really assess what those risks are on a personal level, it becomes very challenging, and that's why I think they're using an abundance of caution here. But as they say, ultimately, I think the risk is so low that I do think we're gonna go back to using it and you know we need to be able to use is as many vaccines as we possibly can so that we can bring down transmission. And hopefully get protection for those who are not able to get vaccinated. Now, this Johnson Johnson vaccine does work in a similar way to the AstraZeneca vaccine. So some are saying, Oh, it must be the type of vaccine that might be associative with clocks. But I'm guessing it's Too early to draw those conclusions is that it is we often have you no vaccines. There's similar but had slightly different side effect profiles. And so you know, the fact that we've seen it with one means we want to pay attention to whether or not it might be occurring with others. But there's no reason specifically at this point to think that it will. Thank you very much. Matt Fox, You are listening to health check from the BBC World Service with me, Claudia Hammond. Now, here are David and Barbara to listeners who got in touch with the BBC. Great. Thanks. Show. I got milk. No, I get it The way brother got investors rich Daddy. No, no super, isn't it now you wouldn't know it by listening to them. But David had a health problem that can be debilitating and is easily mistaken for dementia. It's called normal pressure hydrocephalus or nph on the good news is that it is treatable. Richard Edwards is a neurosurgeon based in the UK who has a special interest in Nph. This is a condition the effects elderly people are studying. Japan identified that about 1.2. 1000 patients per year over the age of 70 developed mph on and it's characterized by a build up of brain fluid in the center of the brain called the cerebral ventricles. But as you get older, the brain's ability to deal with this fluid becomes a bit impaired on. Do we know that the build up of fluid isn't causing any pressure on the brain? Hence the name normal pressure hodge capitalists, but The distension of the ventricles construct. Some of the nerves that passed through the brain big can affect how the brain functions and performs and this these two neurological symptoms that, fortunately can be reversed by treatment. I first noticed it when I was actually on holiday in Crete. And I was coming out of the governor to where we eat was carrying a couple of beer glasses on and when I step down into the The West or Terry, A for governor itself. I felt unstated. I shook it off is perhaps about one drink two minutes, but it continued from there with David getting where somewhere When we were home and I walking his feet would be dragging my kept saying to and pick up your feet. You're walking like an old man. He was 80 then but gradually got worse and worse until David became very unsteady. And it's getting very difficult to walk properly. We couldn't go out and do things David would struggle to walk across the room on the were occasions when he couldn't walk and we had a wheelchair and I push him. From the bedroom to the lounge. It was that bad. The second symptom that often seems to come along is Urinary urgency. He could go all day without going normally on. Then I noticed his memory was not as good on hey, was unable to process things that I was trying to explain to him. On to follow the thread off, say TV programs. These things became more difficult. Initially, patients may just notice some subtle disturbances of balance onboard. As the condition progresses, they can develop the only urgency having to rush to the loo on D a disease progresses. Further, patients can start to notice problems with cognition problems with short term memory, and if he's symptoms progress, it can actually lead to a mild to moderate dementia. As soon as we walked into the neurosurgeons office, he looked at David and said, I think I know what's wrong with you. That was just by seeing how he walked. He then sent David for an M. R I scan on the diagnosis was made. Thankfully, there is a treatment surgeons to an operation, which involves inserting a device called a shunt, which allows the fluid to drain from the brain. It's a small tube about the size of the inside bit of a buyer owned. We drill a small hole in the skull and past that tube into the cavity in the brain, where the fluid has built up on that tube connects to a valve where we can regulate the amount of fluid draining from the brain on Thea. Other end of the valve is usually passed to another part of the body. So once it's in, it stays there forever and trains the food continuously. I started walking slowly after the operation. But now I'm walking pretty normally, David is much more like his old self. Yes, I feel a bit sharper and doing my normal things. Really. We'd go out for walks every day from a half a mile to 1.5 Miles. It would be great if we could walk on Dartmoor again. That was populace look.

The Foreign Affairs Ministry said he was dismayed by statements from some international partners. BBC news. Hello and welcome to health Check from the BBC. I'm Claudia Hammond. I've been scouring the latest research and will be updating you on the newest findings on covert variants on on immunity on asking why coronavirus cases are on the rise in Chile. It's more complicated than you might think. But isn't it always now before that, I'm delighted to welcome back someone who was brilliant keeping up with all the new studies. And that is Matthew Fox, who's professor off global health epidemiology at Boston University in the US How are you? You you like? Imagine you must end up spending a lot of time now reading scientific papers on Cove it I would say it is taking up way more time than I ever thought it would. So keeping on top of it is really a challenge. Well, I wanted to start today with the latest on these different variants that we hear so much about and in particular the variant first found in the UK, officially known as B 117. This is spreading in the U. S. Now, among other places, we know it's more easily passed on an earlier research had suggested it was also more virulent, so more likely to make people ill. Now there's a new study suggesting that's not the case. What if they found in this new one? So what they found in this study was that when they this was done in patients who were Already hospitalized in one of the London hospitals, and what they found was actually it was in the population that they looked at. It was not associated with more severe illness and death. It was associated with patients having a higher viral load so you could detect more of the virus that the patients were shedding. That would be consistent with more easier transmission of the virus, but they did not find Any increased association with with severe illness and death. And so that would be good news but is different from what was found before. What? What do you make of it? It is different from what was found before and I would urge a little bit of caution when, when interpreting the results of this new study Because this study started with patients who were already in the hospital, they had already been hospitalized. It was a smaller study than the previous studies. So we don't get us much information out of it from this study. All you can really say is that for those patients who did end up in the hospital It was not a more severe course of illness, but we don't know yet whether more patients are ending up in the hospital with this strain on also is if a single variant wasn't enough to worry about. There's been news from India off, eh? Double mutants where two variants come together in the same virus. What do we know about this? There's a lot of attention being paid to the idea that these are double mutants meeting. There are two mutations of concern with this particular variant. But you know if you look at any of the strains that have been considered to be mutation strains They often have many mutations, many more than two. It's on Lee when those two or more mutations lead to a change in the way that the virus behaves so either more transmissible or more virulent, leading to more severe illness that we really worry about it, So it's something that we want to be paying attention to. It's too early to say that this is really cause for concern. So it doesn't mean that this has something to do with the big steep rise in cases in India Now, it certainly could be. We just don't know. But you know, until we have better information on what these mutations actually do, and whether or not they're actually leading to increased transmissibility of violence. We don't want to put too much weight into them. Because there are many other possible explanations for why cases arising Well, thank you very much, Matt and do stay with us. Now. You might have heard comparisons between Chile and Israel recently when it comes to clothe it cases. Both countries are way ahead in their vaccine rollouts. But in Chile covert cases are on the rise again on this has led some to claim that it means vaccinations don't make the difference that we'd all hoped for. Others that it's all to do with the type of vaccine chosen for the rollout, mostly the Chinese cinematic vaccine, so to find out what's really being happening, I asked our reporter in Santiago Jane Chambers, how infection rates are looking. What is not great at the moment, we've got lots and lots of cases. I mean, recently we've been having around 8000 day gone down a little bit to 7000 day. But that's a lot If you think that back in February there around 3500 a day, so infection rates really happiness. Shooting up, But the vaccination program has been going well. So some are blaming the choice of vaccine on there. Yes, just in the last few days. There's been a lot of concern about the vaccine we're using here, which is Sina back. A high ranking health official from China. Mr Gault said that he thinks it doesn't have very high rates of protection on he went on to say that in China, they were considering mixing vaccines as a way of boosting efficiency. As you can imagine, that caused a lot of concern in the country's What are we using sonar back? He then went on to say that his comments have bean misinterpreted, and that was a complete misunderstanding about them on. He added that protection rates of all vaccines in the world are sometimes high and sometimes low on how to improve their efficacy is a question that needs to be considered by scientists around the world. Mean in the meantime, here in Chile, the Chilean health authorities have been staunchly defending their decision to use this vaccine. Now we know that it is very difficult to compare different vaccines and that different trials often use different definitions of what efficacy means, But what does the data for this particular vaccine? Tell us Well, there's a lot of different data out there, and I've bean talking to someone who knows all about it. Dr Susan Wino, and she's an academic from the Catholic University here in Chile. But more importantly for us this Scientific director of the clinical trial for Senna back and she's being given me her thoughts in the case of senior, but there were three efficacy study that are currently undergoing one is in Brazil. The other is in Indonesia and the other one is in Turkey. And in the three of them, we have already some a preliminary data off the efficacy of this vaccine that are among the 85 to 50%. In the efficacy of the vaccine depends a lot in the setting off the study that you evaluate in the case of he studied in Brazil, where they reported a 50% efficacy. The setting was in health care workers that are really highly exposed. With a high circulation off the virus, and also the health care workers are currently being tested permanently. So you have a higher chance to identify people that get infected with the virus but having very low or no symptoms. Probably do not do the disease, so that 50% figure refers to a very specific setting, and also how much it stops people getting any symptoms at all, rather than whether they get severe disease or are hospitalized or die. Even absolutely, yes, That's exactly what she's referring to. So, as she says, these people have very low or no symptoms, and they don't end up getting a severe a version of coronavirus. So what do we know about whether it stops the disease that does need medical attention or hospital admission, Which, of course, is what really matters Most well, there are various figures out there. But the latest one that Dr Boiler is giving me comes from the Brazilian trials. On there. She's saying that 83.7% of people taking part in the trial didn't have symptoms that required medical attention on the 100% of the people taking part in that child didn't need to go into intensive care. So in total or in summary, What you can say is the vaccine is highly fricassee to prevent the most of the cases. But the Pegasus 50% to prevent the virus to infect the people. So this is starting to make more sense. But why is this 50% figure? Got all the attention and concerned people so much? I think that people have just picked up on this low rate on obviously..

How prevalent is this symptom. Hallucinations are one of the five main symptoms listed in the diagnostic manual. We use to diagnose schizophrenia. they're very common. But as you said. They're not universal. I would say that. Probably three quarters or more people with schizophrenia experience. At at some point it can be episodic so at a given time somebody with this diagnosis might not be having that. But then when they have relapsed to their muskets worse it may come

The newsroom's Jonathan Savage. Tell me more It all stems from new rules that affect how elections air running Georgia Nick No. One of the controversial provision is the 81, who wants to vote in elections by post will need to provide identification, such as a social Security card or a driver's license, then, until no identity checks have been carried out by providing two matching signatures.

Who's been having a tough april volkswagen matsue and as you may have that's mostly because they started the month with an april fools joke that fell flatter than a busted tire is started in the last days of march when the automaker quote accidentally unquote released a very serious sounding statement announcing that they'd be changing their name to volts wagon that's volts as in electricity. Now volkswagen's id for is the company's only electric model in the us market so far but the company is planning to build more and said that all future electric models would come emblazoned with their new name volts wagon now in eighty-three rolled company. Suddenly changing. Its moniker is suspicious right. But the name change announcement was so deadpan that it got picked up by the likes of cnbc. The bbc and the verge and all that publicity had an impact on the company's stocks. Volkswagen stock prices rose nearly five percent on the day the statement was released the ap reported but only hours later. A company spokesman confirmed that the name change was an early april. Fool's joke a joke. I should say that didn't quite land sea. Volkswagen isn't exactly held up as a model of corporate transparency. You may remember that in two thousand fifteen. The company installed deceptive software in its vehicles to cheat on government emissions tests that move launched a five-year fiasco. That cost volkswagen thirty. Five billion dollars led to the recall of millions of vehicles so volkswagen's been trying to dust off. Its image since then which makes this joke. Well puzzling to say the least and the us securities and exchange commission doesn't seem to have that much of a sense of humor. Manipulating the stock market is of course illegal. An even though it's not certain that manipulation was the intent behind volkswagen statement. The joke certainly swelled stock prices which could bring regulators knocking. But there's another automaker who's been there done that and is thriving that would be tesla which has in the past straight up to see the public in two thousand eighteen founder elon. Musk tweeted that. He had the funding to take tesla. Private stock prices surged ten percent. But it was later revealed that actually there was no such funding. Musket has company each over twenty million dollars in penalties to the sec. But today it seems like things are working out for tesla their social media the spotlight and their electric models are in last month. Wall street journal columnist dan. Neil took volkswagen the new. Id four for a spin and said tesla has nothing to worry about the id. Four is five years behind the comparable tesla you'll wrote and the engineering betrays a premature rush to market harsh words for volkswagen. Which of course has been angling of late to compete directly with tesla. Both automakers plan to open new european factories for their electric vehicles and volkswagen group

Why the Danish government is keen on forcing parents in high immigrant neighborhoods to put their toddlers into daycare centers. If you have children with very very poor language skills. Very very poor social skills who have been isolated for five years before coming to school. Then we need to help these parents to realize that it's important to learn dangerous. It's important to get acquainted with Dana society. We'll discuss the pros and cons of that policy soon. Now, this wouldn't be weekend. Without the presence of two guests to give their personal perspective on the news and issues we discussed today, I'm joined for the rest of the program by Chitra Nagarajan, who's Nigerian writer and human rights activists. She's in our Legoff off studio and Matthew green is here with me in London, British writer and. Journalist for Reuters. Now Chitra welcome as a guest on this program. You've been an interviewee already when you talked about a literature, and theology that you put together how would you describe your your job these days, give us some idea of where you're coming from who you are good morning. Good morning. Mathew. It's a pleasure to be on weekends again. So I live and work in my degree in northeast Nigeria. I spend my time working on issues of human rights and peace building in northeast, Nigeria and then increasingly in the other countries of the Lake Chad basin. There are issues of human rights where you live onto. Yes. Unfortunately, as in many parts of the world, unfortunately. But I think it's fair to say that most of the guests on this program tend to come from well more metropolitan areas with perhaps fewer social problems than you come across on a daily basis. Tell us the kind of issues that you tackle. Well, I mean, no, 'this Nigeria has been experiencing conflict now for a long time. It'll be ten years next year since. Since we have seen violence in in the states of the northeast, and this is violence between armed opposition groups, commonly known as Graham and the Nigerian states, and then in the last couple of years, the other countries in the region as well to the work that I do really looks at promoting and protecting the human rights of women in particular, but also working with civilians on ways that they can protect themselves from an engaging with hepatitis as well, so am I spent a lot of time talking to you security agencies, the Nigerian military as well as community militias on human rights international humanitarian law answering protection and ways they can reduce the likelihood of harming civilians during the course of their operations. Welcome to the program. Chitter live from LEGO says Chitra Nagarajan much more to come from her ass from Matthew green, Matthew you've worked in some thirty countries for the for. Times and for Reuters over the years, and you've lived in Lagos haven't you? That's right. It's wonderful to be hearing from Nigeria. I was back in Lagos about a year ago myself for a couple of weeks, and I do miss the place, although I was disappointed to find that after returning officer about a ten year absence. That was still notable shortage of electricity. If any progress is being made on that Chitra, but it'll be great to return to Lego's one day and see the place lit up. What does that mean? So several hours a day without telling. Yeah. Yeah. No long long powercuts there. But it was fascinating on my last. Visit I I went to report on a small company called rent sauce founded by Nigerian entrepreneur who's working to install solar power across Lagos, which is long overdue, but really holds out the promise of a real revolution in energy in Nigeria. So it's exciting times as well. In the city Matthew urine, author of aftershock, which is a story of surviving pieces. You put it it's about post traumatic stress disorder is it. Yeah. That's right. I spent many years working in conflict zones. As a journalist including in Iraq and Afghanistan, but then a few years ago, I returned to the UK to rights aftershock, which documents the struggles of British military veterans and their families looking for ways to recover and heal from the trauma of war. And it was an amazing journey. I discovered some people doing some really fantastic work life saving work. A lot of people who although they've been through extraordinarily painful experiences had really come out the other side. And I think shows that former survivors where the military all civilian can make remarkable recoveries when they give him the right kind of support. Thank you, his office topic on the program today, the plastic straw, a little bit wider than that. But it's an example of something that could be consigned to history in European Union countries soon on Wednesday, the European parliament voted in favor of a ban on single use plastic products that would apply to such items as straws plates cutlery and cotton buds, which make up more than seventy percent of waste material in the world's oceans other plastics such as drink bottles will have to be collected separately and recycled at a rate of ninety percent by twenty twenty-five under EU law speaking during the debate before the vote the Irish MVP look mean Lukman Flanagan described encountering his first plastic cutlery in the nineteen seven. And he said nobody thought then that it will prove to be such a threat to the environment. At the time. We were worried our main worry on this planet was a nuclear holocaust little did. We realize that the plastic fork and spoon that I had in my hand was actually going to turn out to be more dangerous. And I say that now even with who we have in the White House by twenty fifty would be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish by wish one hundred thirty different marine species known to have ingested plastic could ban like this work elsewhere in the world, specifically could it work in the US? Peter Morici is an American economist and business professor at the university of Maryland. I asked him if he welcomed the legislation from the European parliament puzzled as to what the objective is if it's to reduce carbon that's fine. But you have to consider that a sweeping ban may cause producers or manufacturers to come up with solutions that are. Even more harmful to the environment. Let's take airplanes. There's a lot of plastic inside the cabins of airplanes that may never get reused is that single use. And what will it be replaced by you medal of some kind also and takes resources to make that metal just like it does plastic takes energy, and it's heavier as a consequence that may cause the airplane. Take get less gas mileage so to speak and carbon footprint. So those people who carry around a metal knife and fork in their bag when they go to work. So they don't have to use a plastic one. They're doing the wrong thing are they I'll I know things. So I don't think that's quite the same thing. I think avoiding the use of disposable plastic is not a bad thing to do. However, I don't know that just banning it outright. Across the board is necessarily going to achieve the most desirable results while it's not outright is it. It's just in the European Union and Chile that's a good start. No, it's outright inside the European Union. What I'm saying is that alternatives will have to be found, for example, if you don't use a plastic bottle, then you'll have to use a glass bottle. How much energy goes into the use of that glass bottle? How much energy goes into either recycling or destroying it in the landfill? One has to consider what the alternative is for each use of a single use plastic. I thought the whole point was that they were single use plastics and a glass bottle. You can take back your shop and refill and used as many times as you want at home. I mean that is the perceived wisdom, surely well, not necessarily. I haven't seen many returnable bottles in the United States had about twenty five years. Well, there are a lot modem in Europe. I can tell you. Well, that's fine. Also costs money those bottles up in use them. Again. It's not that single use plastics should be used. It's not that getting rid of them isn't a good thing. But you have to be careful about being sweeping. I'm just curious as to what the alternative to sweeping is. I mean, if you introduced legislation to ban single use plastics, it either bands or a dozen is it a good thing. Or is it not in your opinion? I don't think it's a good thing to have a sweeping ban should such measures be expanded. So that it becomes written into global trade deals that European Union. That is certainly not good for the world. I would like to see fewer single use plastics out there. Right. So what's your plastic forks or are going into restaurants, and being handed styrofoam cups and things of this nature? However, one was has to be judicious about this and think it through you have to be careful about how you go about this because you might end up using more energy rather than less. It depends on the energy use of the alternative. That's the problem. Right. You decide to just blindly throw a regulation on something. This is a good example of why is Brexit is this kind of unthinking mandate added parcels that as far as people to vote the way they do. But surely it boils down to whether it's better to use reusable items again, and again or to use plastic items if the science shows that you are damaging the environment less by not using plastic forks, surely there isn't much of a debate about it. Unless you represent the interests of plastic fork makers, I don't represent anyone's interest, by the way, I guess I've said over and over again to you getting rid of most single use plastics, probably makes pretty good sense. But getting rid of all, I don't know. And that's when bothers me about this legislation because they may be circumstances, which the alternative material actually causes more arms the environment because in the nature in the way, it's used Peter Morici who's an economist. And business professor at the univer- university of Maryland in the US. What did you make of that Chitra? Well, I understand what he's saying about having to look at the energy footprints of tentatives. But I do think that environment degradation and climate change that we're seeing in the world today if such a pressing issue, and we need. Sweeping urgent action at scale on this. Of course, looking at plastic is not new we've seen plastic bags being banned on the African continent, for example in Rwanda Kenya. Martiniere and Morocco. And of course across the world. We've also seen taxes on plastic bags. I think it's a very welcome development. My flight reservation is around the ban on plastic strollers in particular, and I've been reading the concerns from disability rights. Campaigners about this. And who talk about how many people with disabilities. Need plastic jaws in order to be able to drink liquids?.
