Dr. Ryan Cole on Making the COVID Vaccine Less 'One Size Fits All'
"Make pretty clear that you don't think getting these vaccines is a great idea. You've made that pretty clear. Give us some basics because there are people out there who just think anybody says that is just flat out crazy. What i've looked at tells me no. It's a very bad idea to get the vaccine. But i'm not a doctor. You are a doctor so tell us well. I think we approached this. Everything's hammer. Everything's a nail. There's a one-size-fits-all approach governmentally nationally. Medically we really need to consider who are the risk groups so are targeted approach should be high risk. Maybe do the vaccines for those individuals. But it's still not without its risks number two contagion control your stay home wash. Your hands masks are incredibly questionable and controversial. But there's no data in the last decades and decades that show in a randomized control trial. They work even the bangladesh study. That just came out if you look at eight zero two thirty no benefit and then number three early treatment and before early treatment and number five early treatment but the vaccines themselves are not without risk. And and we're using this one size fits all approach to all routes and say underage fifty without risk factors ninety nine point nine. Eight percent of people survive the virus with early treatment. Almost one hundred percent. I'm not saying that people aren't going to succumb to the virus but two pound whoops of individuals that are more risk from shot than benefit is scientifically illogical and unethical

"Let's talk about who these people because this isn't really discussed with so is we accept so many people land of immigrants so let. Let's be clear who's coming across the border. My this. this is personal to me. My parents were actual. Refugees got asylum status. Why because my father was liberated from a communist prison where he had been put there for his beliefs not committing a crime but for believing that communism was bad.

"Climate change conference twenty six. We don't want to have to beg for money. We should be seeing biggest. The world's biggest polluters voluntarily trying to help us. Because this isn't just an issue for bangladesh is issue for the whole world but also the world can learn from. Bangladesh is experiencing lamb from some of the mitigation measures. It's already put in place but you know this is so urgent in it's such emergency just needs the cash to try and keep these people in their homes for longer for now do for medical impression only. Can you tell. I fail so i can tell you do and and we i think i think it's just because it's that sense of urgency and immediacy you get from talking with people that you feel. Gosh why haven't we seen this earlier. And it's that sense of you know for some people for example in that village by the hanging village where the rivers creeping up. It's too late. it's too late for them. They're going to have to move. They've kind of resign themselves to. And it's heartbreaking. Because we always try and be so positive and and the action can make a difference but it is too late for those people but the best you can hope and it sounds callous to say and i was trying to think in my mind like how how what what posted come we draw. I think the only thing you can draw from their experience is let's look at it. Let's learn from it and just really hope we can stop it happening to tens of thousands millions ball indeed let it be a lesson for the world. Yeah absolutely so the situation is pretty darn. There's no denying that but the bangladesh government are doing what they can't try to adapt an offer advice to other vulnerable countries at risk of a similar fate to bangladesh. And we're very pleased to be able to talk to one of those people apple. Callum assad is the newly appointed special climate envoys the bangladesh and chair of the climate vulnerable forum which represents the worst affected countries at cop. How much help do countries like. Bangladesh need from the rest of the international community. Is it getting. the financial. Support needs the developed developed-country committed hundred billion dollars but far cry earlier committed point seven percent of their gdp for the developing country incomes of is implementation on holidays so all these apart right so bangladesh develop our own fund of climate trust. You mentioned the hundred billion dollar fund. This is an annual fund that was pledged that that biggest still hasn't been reached though. Has it by the international. Do you think ever will be reaching. Do you think the fact that that targets been missed. It suggests that people still think that this is someone else's problem and that there's not that sense of wanting to shoulder the responsibility by the international community by some of the biggest polluters. This is one of the only. This hundred billion dollar will not change the oil. Ciu but these hundred billion dollar can be used you were provided by the metex by developed countries. Then some sort of vulnerability could be reduced. We are very hopeful that when usa came back in Bettys agreement not only bangladesh in the whole globe. Look so bitter. Hope that from now. On after the g seven leaders meeting the scenario will be changed and a bitter result will be in the copter six. Is that your main hope for cop. Twenty six copter into six Not only the hope is one hundred billion but we understand that it should be much more hundred billion plus at the same time the issue of for global warming one point five degrees so we need for the commitment in cop twenty six from the developed country to reach one point five what difference does have a degree make to a country like bangladesh. You for even one point. Five degrees centigrade increase then by two one. Zero zero about twenty five to thirty percent of our county will go underwater for the sea level rise and thanks the tasha's experiencing the effects of climate change right now as we've been hearing so what's your message that the rest of the world on the issue. We need to leave with major. We need to fight nature about. We need to live with nature so fight nature. How reducing the global temperature and leave with nature. That you might get hold of your people so how to survive with these mitchell calamities So many good practices is cited. And so many i could not so these good practices which nature bridge solution in our country. And obviously we are working for the local deduction these two or and having the innovative financing In different climate vulnerability and also zillions so really interesting to hear from the bangladeshi climate envoy about what he thinks the rest of the world should be doing to save not just bangladesh but other vulnerable countries as well and adapt to nature seems to be his message. There look for solutions as we always do of course on climate costs now katerina poorly go. I do want to know the highlight of your trip. What's stuck out to you most. There's just been so much to reflect on where we been spoken to what we've seen over the past five six weeks at so.

It's it's where the land and the water meets is indistinguishable because the type of land hair and it's kind of a mud and sediment that's mixed on it is so slippery the kids who live in these villages think kits hysterical and so much fun because they're sliding down the mud the mud banks and into the water. And then i arrive. Oh gosh i'm sort of you know we're in the speed by approaching this island and i'm trying to be cool and it's always guys you sort. Women don't particularly work in in the teams that we've been working is generally guides and it's loaded the fishermen who driving the boats. We've got one been fries too. I asked him for sunday fishing. This idea and then they asked to quit doing well. Which was nice and now one is two and self sufficient independent woman. And i'm gonna get off this boat onto this island. I take one step wipeout unlike the sliding along. Because we'd been told that because it's so slippery actually. You're better off going bath that you can get a bit of purchased toes. But i think i was so overwhelmed. 'cause this lovely bank of children had rushed towards us to say hello because they're of school because of the pandemic any deviation from daily locked down there so kind of overjoyed to see anyone they were so honest and so frank about their experience living in precarious situation where that that that island is being eroded by the river because of rising sea levels and that their homes which raise up on these still just battered by cyclones constantly and they were so honest and frankly showing us how how swami spectacle fishermen. You know he'd pointed to the mid of the rivers at. That's where my house used to be. Should they actually ask just cannot see and it was three hundred meters from where we were standing. Now you just got a sense of how desperate things off the people and how close they are to the edge. You know we we we talk and we joke about all getting onto the mud and falling over. But these are the conditions that they're having to adapt and deal with learn to deal with every day So it was Certainly an eye opening experience down to the south just to see how close some people living to the edge and to be honest furloughed of the people living there. You know it probably is. They're going can have to move. They're going to have to either move from their village away from the river ray from the livelihoods that they've always known which is fishing and rice farming riverside villages surrounded by beautiful mangrove forest incredible wildlife fresher river water to come and live in a city like docker which is well. It's ranked the fourth least liveable cities in the world. I'm free much to that. Say it'll in terms of its congested. It's the air is very polluted just from the number and volume of people that live but these are decisions people having to make an not particularly say that kind of accepted that they were going to have to make that decision guttering. I'm really interested in you saying that. Duck has ranked the fourth least liveable city in the world. Give us more of a sense of why that is yet. What just to put that into context. One of the country's so i think the least liveable is damascus. In syria and data is only three places about that but what those rankings petite you look at things air quality infrastructure and i some areas of it intense It's jam packed with people with buildings when it floods because of the monsoon rain the sewers. Unfortunately clog i'm back backup and the smell is horrendous and compounding all that is all these people all trying to work live jostle together in this environment where it's just unbelievably intense and we. We spoke to a guy massive seller who is head of bangladesh's biggest ngo brac and interestingly they when they started as an ngo they started back in the seventies and it it was to help bangladesh's who were coming back from india but over the last five years he was saying so much of their work now is to do with helping people affected by climate change. We met him in kellyanne poor slum and he's a little bit like i imagine it's a little bit like what it's like when you interviewed barack obama. He doesn't come alone. We had an entourage of about forty people and they barricade they barricade one end of the road because they needed to give him some space. but he's so lovely and he knows the slums inside and out and he's done so much work there. We'd really like orchestrated and his team. So came in you exactly where we want to do. The interview where they wanted to know where we wanted to do each we start and the heavens open. It's to sound right. Oh you're going to be why we're going to go shirt for a number of and all of our plans are just obliterated by this monsoon rain but full credit to him. He's so used to it and he just kept going I'm really gave us such great sense. All war is me in dakar. Is huge challenge that they face. So what can the government do about it. I mean are there ways of building up defenses to try and prevent some of the land flooding. I mean what are they doing So there are embankments being built to try and hold back rising sea levels but also innovation such as reversals. Most this so so plant where they're trying to ten salt water back into fresh drinking water people being encouraged to do rainwater harvesting so a bit like having a rainwater by you know. We have them in the uk fuel garden while that suggesting actually people don't make the best use use the monsoon rain. We have to try and at least get some fresh water drinking supplies. They're looking at alternative crops to grow that more salt resistant. So some flower seeds for example can grow With with salty. Water is of fresh water. So you know that might be a bit more. Durable crop and there are people who are creating floating gardens and floating fields so that they didn't have to be said heavily. Reliant on on fish-farming they. Perhaps you still do their vegetable farming their rice farming for example to this huge innova- innovation this us potential. But what it needs is financial support and investment and that bangladesh currently spends two percent of its gdp all mitigation measures and this is a poor country at cannot really afford to sustain that. I'm what it's saying is we're going to.

I think this is a setup as it might be a setup but we're going to go find out and so if he would have the opportunity to talk with him It's not what any particular person can say. But god can use anything for his his cause and he could open. This man's mind to understanding christ's the story goes on on But i think i'm gonna it's see it's quarter to kind of stop it there. If there's a details at somebody wants to ask about. I could maybe fill in some details that could fill in some gaps in the story. If there's if there's too big of a gap. Because i realized i understand everything that happened and so maybe i didn't give enough details to connect some of the happenings together and left a little bit in the dark so if somebody has questions they could ask questions..

That courtroom essentially strengthens the family. As it grows if you can if you can pass that onto where ca like you say you know your dad moved you moved. Your kids go to mars. Now you know that's essentially growth and expansion. You know your kids wherever they go are going to end up losing something new that you didn't know you know you learned a new side that your family didn't know properly beforehand in oh so on and so forth. So that's just growing maturing developing for the betterment of the whole family and yeah that's an awesome type of mindset to half at some good shit right there that you and your mindset is i always wonder what the origination of mindsets because it varies so much across cultures like like. Why do you think that the us has this. Pride mindset which a lot of other places. I know. we're going off topic a little bit but as five. Yeah but I practice of correlate with nationalism in a right so you you're you'll see this across all cultures cultures that are that are very natural nationalistic. They're very big price. So i always wonder like what the origination of that is. And i mean in some cases it can be valuable right so like in war with another country or of having a sort of national identity is important but all in other one that i heard. Recently that during nine eleven was yeah last time when there was no political divide one came together very very nonpartisan way and the national identity was very strong very so it can be beneficial during those times. Right extremely yeah. I'm always wondering about that. Like what are some things that are To it yeah. My opinion is i mean if you look at what we have done in our past like from how we started to where we got to where we are right now. We won our independence from britain awesome.

"Another thing that i found out that was a countrywide thing for bangladesh is. Y'all have a few guinness world records. You have one for the longest human chain. do you know about this one. I i have heard about this. But i haven't looked looked deeply into it. What happened in two thousand four. Okay happened in two thousand four it. Bangladesh were record was set with over five million people join hands together the longest human chain in the world stretching from tech nafta to the okay we the southern most point and the northernmost point so it's literally taking the south and the north of the country and they went the whole country. Yep yeah exactly. Yeah wow yeah. That's that's insane. So those are the two ends of that country. Basically that the have been joined in with people in his wild. Yeah it's pretty insane five million people. Yeah that's as you're saying this number Another thing that i wanted to mention just the sheer number of people in our country. So oh yeah. So i when people ask me what i tell them that so in terms of size jerk geography wise It's equal to the size of the state of iowa or s new york. Those are very one to one ratio in terms of size but the population of bengal issues hundred and fifty million population of the. Us is three hundred million. So the way that i put this into perspective is you take half of the people of the us and you shove them into the state of iowa or the state of new york and basically what you get. Bang this so i read some of the articles. I came across They use the analogy of Well one i think at one point either bangladesh. Or how do you pronounce the capital city. Taka tucker was at one point the most densely populated city in the world. I don't remember the number by do know that was a title that it that was once held crowded. Yeah yes but the other one that still current is and like you said if you look at the size of iowa or new york and picture that but you guys are all bangladesh is the eighth eighth most populated country in the world so again for all all the americans out here listen you know. We all generally know how big iowa is. We definitely have an idea of how big new york is not that big but in terms of country that for bangladesh. It's the eighth most populated. Here's another world his another thing. We're in fact so populated just my population that are language. Bengali is the most spoken language in the world no way because of how many people are. It's sixth most spoken language in the world. Wow so i'm i'm assuming you have to. Are you fluent benghazi. Then i'm guessing right. I'm fluent in reading writing speaking.
