Fresh update on "beaumont" discussed on Morning Edition
"COVID-19 vaccines work really really well at keeping people out of the hospital and keeping people from dying That's what scientists say and what the data overwhelmingly shows So many people were shocked to hear that Colin Powell who had been vaccinated died from COVID complications this week But as NPR's will stone reports serious breakthrough illnesses do happen Colin Powell was not the typical vaccinated American All the details about his health aren't public but we do know he had some big risk factors For one he had undergone treatment in recent years for blood cancer Doctor Jonathan who's at the University of Michigan says these are exactly the kind of patients he expects to see with a severe breakthrough infection It's become quite clear that the majority of people who have received one of the COVID vaccines And then come into the hospital sir I really do have some things that means her immune system just was not going to respond well to the vaccine That could be due to cancer a severe autoimmune disease or an organ transplant In fact over the summer the CDC reported that more than 40% of hospitalizations among the vaccinated were in people with a weakened immune system And it's why a third shot was recommended for this group Gallup says the other risk factor for Powell was his age He was 84 It seems like the vaccines work well upfront but people who are older the effect of the vaccine tends to wear off a little bit more quickly Which is why boosters are now recommended for people over 65 An age group that accounts for the overwhelming majority of hospitalizations among the vaccinated Doctor Ahmed ball noticed this when he looked at which COVID patients were showing up at Beaumont health a hospital system in Michigan The average unvaccinated patient was 52 years old And the fully vaccinated patient was over 70 All study found that if you were vaccinated you had a 96% reduction in the chance of being in the ER or hospital A bad outcome for a patient that's fully vaccinated was exceedingly rare That was before the surge in the delta variant And ball says since then the numbers have changed about a quarter of the patients in their hospitals for COVID are now vaccinated So you're seeing a higher percentage that are coming into the hospital But still proportionately it's much less than those that are unvaccinated It's a key point More people are vaccinated So the total numbers will be bigger But the general trend holds Serious breakthrough infections are more likely among people who are in their 70s or older with underlying health problems Still it's unnerving when high profile figures fall seriously ill and die Angela Rasmussen is a virologist at the university of Saskatchewan I think it gives people the false impression that the vaccines aren't working And in fact that is absolutely not the case It's hard to pinpoint just how many vaccinated people are ending up in the hospital in the U.S. because it's not being tracked in a comprehensive way We do know the risk of getting hospitalized is 12 times higher for those who are unvaccinated But Rasmussen says breakthrough cases are becoming more common The country's inundated with the highly contagious delta variant and more people are vaccinated which leads to more breakthrough infections We have more cases overall and it really becomes a numbers game Vaccines are wonderful They are very effective but they're not a 100% perfect effective And you always are going to have some cases that the vaccines don't work And while most breakthrough infections don't lead to serious disease in some fraction of the population they do which is why the best solution for protecting the most vulnerable is to make sure everyone around.

Stupa is enjoying her saturday night at home with her husband's scott and their two teenage daughters. They have one more kid ryan.

And we're worried so we just went ahead and reported him missing to police. So you're probably going to be getting a call just like f. Why heather immediately gets james on the phone. He's like okay.

Yeah okay well in true twenty year old fashioned. James says that no one was really ready to go home when bottoms close for the night at one. Am so they decided to all head down the hill and off the resort to this like little get together that they heard was going on. This was happening at a house. That was just around the corner from where james and ryan lived anyway so they figured like okay. We're gonna head down there. Maybe have another drink and then we'll just go home. They ended up catching a lift down from the bar to the bottom of the hill and then they were walking the rest of the way to the house party and listen to me. This whole trip took like ten minutes tops by one thirty. Though james was ready to go home he tells heather that he saw ryan stand up and he thought that he was right behind him. In a couple of other people who had left the same time but somewhere during their walk home i guess they looked around and realized he wasn't

Another people don't realize just how dependent the education industry is on data points ruins inform how you track performance in many different ways whether it's in beaumont of formal assessment reading practice or instruction right but voice is actually a new category data for education. Because you mean about you know the only real way of capturing boy seat previously is for a human to sit alongside educated. Sit alongside a child on down no tate. What they're saying what we can do. Is we start to automate that process but we can also provide richness of features based around the voice. State is not just wanted to child. Say how well did they said well. We can also vote. What didn't they say is what what he didn't say is in many cases just as important as what they did. Say you know. Where did they make the substitution magic. An in session. And then you can start looking at things like reading property. And how how how indicative is reading prostate of of confidence when a child is reading. So there's so many features that you can extract from voice which a critical to improving educational experience and then having that along chewed the data set that can illustrate improvements in performance over time

He was educated at oxford and studied law. The inner temple and though his career as a writer was short he won a high reputation as a poet and was buried in westminster. Abbey john fletcher. Son of the bishop of london was born in fifteen seventy nine and died in sixteen twenty five. He was a graduate of cambridge and appears to have been much more professional man of letters than beaumont he wrote. Many plays by himself and after beaumont ceased to write worked in collaboration with several other men including shakespeare phil aster is an excellent typical example of their plays which are thus admirably characterized by thorndike their plots largely invented our ingenious and complicated they deal with royal or noble persons with heroic actions and are placed in foreign localities the conquests user patients and passions that ruined kingdoms are their themes.

Would you let your face be your passport?
"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story hillary. Beaumont is a freelance investigative reporter based in toronto. Hello hillary hey are you doing. I'm doing well. I'm a little creeped out. About the next time i traveled. Thanks to this piece. No problem just happy to make you aware will listen. Let's start with the actual process. You had your irises scanned as part of reporting this. What is that like. tell me about it. yeah i thought it was. It would be really interesting to go into a jail in texas as part of this story because there was a sheriff there. this guy named omar lucio who had been lake pretty open about the fact that he was using this iris scanner in his jail. His jail is very close to the texas mexico border and this iris scanner was helping basically deport people at the us border And i wanted to go inside the jail and see what this was like. I went in saw how they were using it in jail. They were scanning inmates in an not telling them what this technology was. I volunteer to use it as well as essentially like a little camera. You get your is scanned. It checks your is against database and tells you who the person is and if they have a criminal history and i'm assuming years came up negative. They came up negative. Yes do you know what happened to the scan after you were done well for my is deleted it but for inmates in the jail they keep them indefinitely they basically ended up in government database that is shared with law enforcement agencies across the us like the fbi and also immigration and customs enforcement and essentially they they allow agencies to deport people more quickly or identify people who are not using their real names. And that's really how it works. Is there anything in. we're going to get beyond This one texas jail this one technology In just a second but is there anything preventing that jail or any other place That does this from giving those to anyone else like i. I understand it being used in a law enforcement context though we can certainly debate that. But i mean how private is it wants. Your eyes are out there. Yeah i mean for a lot of these technologies whether it's in a jail context or when you're crossing an international border. What i think people should know is that you're you're in a space of reduced privacy expectation. So it's really hard to say no to these technologies than once your irises or your face or any. Biometric identification is scanned. It can be indefinitely stored in a database an shared with all of these different agencies. Know whether or not you're a criminal. Can you explain a little bit about What a place with a reduced expectation of privacy is an and what does that let the government do yeah So spaces of reduced privacy expectation include borders prisons detention facilities and essentially these areas. Where legally you cannot retain your rights to privacy as well as you wouldn't other context so One example is a back in twenty sixteen. I believe i was flying from toronto pearson. To north dakota and to to report on the standing rock protest and i was flagged for secondary screening and The actually confiscated my phone only about ten minutes But it made me nervous hell You know. I had a pass password on my phone of course but it just made me lake feel so violated that they could take my phone like that even just for a few minutes. I was wondering like things were rushing through my head of like. What are they gonna do with my phone. How long are i going to be kept here. What's going on. And this is just an example of what you can and can't do at borders like you. You have a really hard time retaining your privacy your data your phone in these spaces because what are you supposed to do under those circumstances

If they've If they've been been in situations in situations outside outside of of the the family family setting setting in in which which they they really really don't don't know know the level the level of of exposure exposure to to be be really really careful careful when when you you either either return return from from the place the place that that you you went. went. Other Other people people come come back back into into your your house. house. That you've That you've really really got got to understand to understand the importance the importance of of trying trying to to prevent prevent further further spread spread and and further further surge surge that that maybe maybe when when you you go go back back to to where where you you came came from, from, if if it's it's possible possible to to quarantine quarantine yourself yourself for for a a period period of time, of time, or or even even get get tested tested to to make make sure sure That you're That you're not not bringing bringing infection infection back back to to another another place place being being another another home home or or another another family. family. Having Having said said that that we we have have to to be be careful careful now now because because they're they're almost almost certainly certainly is is going going to be to be an an uptick uptick because because of of what what has has happened happened with with the travel. the travel. We We understand. understand. The importance The importance of of family family is getting is getting together together and and it's it's just just something something that that we we have have to to deal deal with with that that we we likely likely will will have have an an increase increase in in cases cases as as we we get get into into the the colder colder weeks. weeks. Of the Of the winter. winter. And And as as we we approach approach the Christmas the Christmas season, season, please please don't don't forget forget the the standard standard public public health health measures measures that that we we talk talk about about The reason The reason I I say say that that a a moth moth and and and and almost almost plead plead with with people people is is that that we we do do know know That it That it does does work. work. Countries Countries that that have have mitigated mitigated have have turned turned around around the surge. the surge. States States that that have have mitigated mitigated have have had had a a turnaround turnaround of the of the inflection inflection of of the the curb. curb. So So it it does does work. work. And And as as we've we've just just heard, heard, help help is is on on the the way way Vaccines Vaccines a a really really right right on on the the horizon. horizon. Will Will be be having having vaccines vaccines available available for for the the higher higher priority priority people people towards towards the the middle middle and and end end of of December December and and as as we we get get into into January January and and February, February, so so everyone everyone is is totally totally empathetic. empathetic. About About the the fatigue fatigue that that everyone everyone is is feeling. feeling. But But if we if we can can hang hang in in there, there, hang hang in in there there a a bit bit longer longer and and do do the fundamental the fundamental things things wearing wearing of of mask mask uniformly uniformly avoiding avoiding crowds crowds and and congregate congregate settings, settings, keeping keeping physical physical distance distance washing washing your your hands. hands. They They seem seem simple simple in in the the enormity enormity of of the problem. the problem. That we're That we're facing, facing, But But they they do do make make a a difference. difference. Dr. Dr. Fauci Fauci pleaded pleaded before before the the beginning. beginning. Yeah, Yeah, Doc Doc Doctor Doctor Fauci. Fauci. You You have have said said that that again again and and again again and and again. again. We We saw saw all all those those people people traveling. traveling. So So you you know know what's what's coming. coming. And And with with Christmas Christmas just just around around the corner, the corner, do do you you think think will will be be under under the the same same restrictions restrictions that that you you recommended? recommended? On Thanksgiving On Thanksgiving going going into into Christmas. Christmas. You You know, know, Martha, Martha, I I can't can't see see how how we're we're not not gonna gonna have have the the same same thing thing because because when when you you have have the the kind kind of inflection of inflection that that we we have, have, it it doesn't doesn't all of all of a sudden a sudden turn turn around around like like that. that. So So clearly, clearly, in in the the next next few few weeks, weeks, we're we're gonna gonna have have the the same same sort sort of thing. of thing. And And perhaps perhaps even even two two or or three three weeks weeks down down the the line, line, Martha, Martha, we we may may see see a a surge surge upon upon a a surge. surge. You You know, we know, we don't don't want want to frighten to frighten people. people. But But that's that's just just the the reality. reality. We We said said that that these these things things would would happen. happen. As we As we got got into into the the cold cold weather, weather, and and as as we we began began traveling, traveling, and and they've they've happened, happened, it's it's gonna gonna happen happen again. again. So So I I cannot cannot see see all all of of a a sudden sudden a a relax relax ation ation of of the kinds the kinds of of recommendations recommendations or or restrictions restrictions because because we're we're getting getting into into colder colder weather weather and and enough enough in in even even larger larger holiday holiday season season as as people people travel travel to to come come back back and and forth. forth. For Christmas, For Christmas, so so I I don't don't see see a a relax relax ation ation of of the kind the kind of of recommendations recommendations and and restrictions restrictions that that we've we've made. made. And And Dr Dr Factually. Factually. The Supreme The Supreme Court Court on on Wednesday Wednesday struck struck down down New New York's York's Covad Covad restrictions restrictions on on religious religious gatherings gatherings in in the state. the state. How How concerned concerned are you are you about about legal legal challenges challenges to to pandemic pandemic restrictions restrictions going going forward? forward? Well, Well, I I mean, mean, they they happened, happened, Martha. Martha. There's There's nothing nothing I I could could do about do about it. it. I I just just keep keep saying saying that that when when people people ask ask me me for for Opinions Opinions of of specific specific things things rather rather than than make make a a comment comment on on a a specific specific things. things. I I could could just just say say it it doesn't doesn't matter matter who who you you are are where where you you are, are, when when you have you have congregate congregate settings, settings, particularly particularly indoors. indoors. When When people people are not are not wearing wearing masks, masks, that that is is a a considerable considerable risk risk for for acquisition acquisition and and spread spread of of infection, infection, no no matter matter what what the circumstances the circumstances that that is is a a risk. risk. And And you you said said there there should should be more be more regular regular testing testing available available for for asymptomatic asymptomatic people. people. How How soon soon do do you think you think before before Americans Americans could could have have inexpensive inexpensive home home tests? tests? And And why why haven't haven't they they so so far? far? Well, Well, I I hope hope it's it's sooner sooner rather rather than than later, later, Martha. Martha. I mean I mean they they obviously obviously we've we've done done better better in in testing testing than than we we did did early early on on in the in beginning. the beginning. But you're But you're talking talking about about different different kinds kinds and and different different motivations motivations and and different different objectives objectives of of testing. testing. If If you're you're trying trying to find to find out out if if a a person person is is infected infected either either for for contact contact tracing tracing or or what what have have you you then then you you want want a a highly highly sensitive sensitive test test that that might might take take a a day day or or two two to to get get a a result result back. back. When When you're you're trying trying to find to find out out what what the the extent extent of of the community the community spread spread is is that that is is driven driven very very clearly, clearly, at at least least in in part part by by asymptomatic asymptomatic spread, spread, so so we we need need to to know know the extent the extent of of the the asymptomatic. asymptomatic. The only The only way way you you know know that that is is what what you you just just asked asked for. for. And I And I would would like like to to have have seen seen it it already. already. And And I hope I hope that that we we get get it soon. it soon. Rapid, Rapid, sensitive, sensitive, specific specific home home testing testing even even one one that that you you might might not not even even need need a a prescription prescription for for so so that that people people can can have have within within their their own own power power to to know know whether whether or or not not it it is is in in his his highly highly sensitive sensitive is is the the other, other, but but it it is is very very helpful, helpful, particularly particularly if if you you do do it it over over and and over over again. again. I hope I hope we we get get that that soon. soon. And And Dr Dr Fauci Fauci in New in York New York City City Public Public school school shut shut down down again again earlier earlier this this month. month. I I know know your your default default position position is is that that you'd you'd like like to to see see the the skull skull schools schools open. open. But But how how do do you you make make that that happen? happen? And And how how would would you you advise advise the the incoming incoming Biden Biden administration administration on on getting getting a a sort sort of unified of unified response? response? Well, Well, you you know, know, Martha, Martha, that's that's a a good good question. question. We get We get asked asked that all that all the the time. time. You You know, we know, we say say it it not not being being facetiously facetiously as as a a sound sound bite bite or anything, or anything, but but you you know, know, Closed Closed the boss the boss and and keep keep the the school's school's open open is is what what we really we really say. say. Obviously, Obviously, you you don't don't have have one one size size fits fits all. all. But But as as I I said said in in the past, the past, and and as as you you accurately accurately quoted quoted me me The default The default position position should should be be to to try try his his best best this this possible possible within within reason reason to keep to keep the the Children Children in school in school to to get get them them back back to school. to school. The The best best way way to to ensure ensure the the safety safety of of the Children the Children in school in school is is to to get get the community the community level level of of spread spread low. low. So So if if you you mitigate mitigate the things the things that that you you know, know, are are causing causing spread spread In a In a very, very, very very profound profound way way in in a a robust robust way. way. If If you you bring bring that that down, down, you you will will then then indirectly indirectly and and ultimately ultimately protect protect the Children the Children in the in school the school because because the the community community level level is is determined determined how how things things go go across across the the board. board. So my So my feeling feeling would would be the be the same same thing. thing. If If you you look look at at the the data, data, the spread the spread among among Children Children and and from from Children Children is is not not really really very very big big at at all, all, not not like like one one would would have have suspected. suspected. So So let's let's try try to to get get the the kids kids back. back. But But let's let's try try to to mitigate mitigate the the things things that that maintain maintain and and and and just just push push the the kind kind of community of community spread spread that that we're we're trying trying to avoid. to avoid. And And those those other other things things that that you you know know well, well, the the bars bars the the restaurants restaurants where where you have you have capacity capacity seating seating indoors indoors without without masks. masks. Those Those of of the things the things that that drive drive the the community community spread, spread, not not the the schools schools and and and and Dr Dr fracture. fracture. You You talked talked about about the the vaccine vaccine and and the availability the availability of of the the vaccine. vaccine. The government The government Can't Can't force force everyone everyone to take to take the vaccine. the vaccine. So So what what about about schools? schools? Companies? Companies? Employers? Employers? Can Can they they mandate mandate of vaccine of vaccine like like in in other other vaccines? vaccines? You You know know any any individual individual group group command command eight eight vaccines vaccines in in certain certain ways, ways, Martha, Martha, It's It's not. not. I I believe believe going going to come to come centrally. centrally. I I don't don't want want to get to get ahead ahead of of the game the game there, there, but but I I doubt doubt that. that. That would That would happen. happen. For For example, example, right right now, now, myself. myself. I I mean, mean, I'm I'm at at the the NIH NIH Clinical Clinical Center. Center. I'm I'm a a physician. physician. I I see see patients. patients. I I have have to to get get the the influenza influenza vaccine vaccine or or I'm I'm not not gonna gonna be able be able to see to see patients, patients, so so individual individual units units be be they they hospitals hospitals or or other other organizations. organizations. Can't Can't do do that. that. It's It's within within their their right right to to say. say. If If you you want want to work to work with with us, us, you're you're gonna gonna have have to to get get a vaccine. a vaccine. But But that's that's not not going going to be, to be, I I believe, believe, essentially essentially mandated mandated process process and and Dr Dr Factory. Factory. There There are are concerns concerns about about the the anti anti vaccination vaccination movement movement and and infectious infectious to to see see disease disease specialists specialists in Boston, in Boston, telling telling the Boston the Boston Globe Globe the same the same energy energy that that was was placed placed into into development development and and distribution distribution of a of a Corona Corona virus. virus. Vaccine Vaccine should should have have been been placed placed in in messaging messaging and and community community engagement. engagement. Do you Do you agree agree with with that? that? Oh, Oh, absolutely. absolutely. We We have have to to engage engage the the community. community. Martha Martha B. B. Because Because we we do do have have a a degree degree of of anti anti vax vax to to begin begin with. with. But But then then there's there's skepticism skepticism about about this this vaccine. vaccine. So So we've we've got got to be to be able able to to get get out out there there get get community community people people who who the the community community trust trust to show to show two two things. things. The process The process of of the the development development of of this this vaccine vaccine has has been been one one that that has has been been scientifically scientifically sound sound safety safety has has not not been been compromised. compromised. Scientific Scientific integrity integrity has has not not been been compromised compromised and and the process the process Of determining Of determining whether whether it it works. works. Whether Whether it's it's safe safe and and effective, effective, has has been been independent independent by by independent independent bodies bodies and and transparent. transparent. We've We've got got to get to get the the community community the broad the broad community community of of the United the United States States to to see see that that and and appreciate appreciate that. that. And And how how could could be be we'd we'd be sure be sure there there won't won't be prolonged be prolonged side side effects effects from from this this vaccine. vaccine. Well, Well, you you know, know, Martin, Martin, the one the one thing thing you've you've got got to admit to admit that that in in any any intervention, intervention, there there might might be be a side a side effect. effect. The The history history of of vaccine vaccine ology ology that that we we know know for for decades decades and and decades. decades. Is that Is that when when you you talk talk about about prolonged prolonged side side effects effects that's that's very very rare rare and and the side the side effects effects that that occurred occurred that that are beyond are beyond the immediate the immediate pain pain in in the the arm arm and and the fever the fever and and things things like like that. that. Generally Generally occur occur when when you look you look at at like like 95% 95% of the of time the time between between maybe maybe 30 30 and and 45 45 days, days, which which is is the the exact exact reason reason why why the the FDA FDA said said that that they they would would not not want want Tonto Tonto issue issue and and you you a a or or approve approve anyway anyway and and emergency emergency use use organization organization until until 60 60 days days after after half half of of the the people people in in a a trial trial Have Have gone gone from from their their last last dose. dose. So So already, already, the the FDA FDA has has baked baked into into the the process, process, a a safety safety mechanism mechanism to to make make sure sure that that you you have have historically historically overwhelming overwhelming chance chance that that you're you're not not gonna gonna have have a a very very late late effect. effect. Having Having said said that that also, also, you you don't don't just just forget forget about about it. Once it. Once the the trial trial is is over, over, you you have have one one or or two two years years of of the the trial trial follow follow up. up. In In addition addition to to post post trial trial follow follow up up So that's So that's something something that that is is very, very, very very high high priority priority is is the the immediate immediate intermediate intermediate and and long long term term safety safety of of these these vaccines. vaccines. It's It's not not something something that's that's being being disregarded. disregarded.

Houston spared from Hurricane Laura
"In the end hurricane. Laura, was even stronger than expected and landed even a little further east that meant good fortune for Houston less of an impact for Beaumont and bad news for communities in western Louisiana from Lake Charles to Cameron parish were Laura Landfall after midnight at one hundred, fifty miles per hour this hour will do what we can. To assess Laura's impact on Texas communities to our south and east as it has occurred if it has occurred, will also try to get a sense of how we can help likely more devastated communities across the border into Louisiana I. Let's walk through what we know about what happened overnight, and where we stand this morning news eighty, eight, Seventy Robinson is here with the very latest good morning. Good morning, Craig. That's right following multiple days of officials calling on residents to take this storm seriously, Houston for the most part was spared by Hurricane Laura hit landfall like you said, overnight just before a. m. as a cat four near cat five hurricane or Cameron Louisiana as thirty miles southeast of orange. Texas Governor Greg Abbott Craig made an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America just a few moments ago and said that about five to ten thousand coastal area residents evacuated from the storm and so far. There are no reports of fatalities. Lives may have been sade as a result of those who fled from areas in port author, Beaumont in Orange Texas and really Craig. Most of East Texas was largely spared from severe impacts of Laura as Port Authors Mayor Thurman Bardy spoke to NPR's morning edition and said that there had been minimal damage and was thankful for how the City Fared as port author. If you recall was one of the first cities in Texas to order evacuations ahead of the storm, of course, there'd been concerns of how evacuations would potentially be complicated by the corona virus pandemic. The mayor said that he felt. Pretty good about the decision to issue mandatory leaves. Emergency managers have accu is practice social distancing many wore masks evacuation buses had wipes and disinfectant on hand and hotel rooms were used across the state instead of large shelters. Now, closer to Houston Galveston county officials are saying it's safe to return to the area except for Bolivar Peninsula state. Highway Eighty seven, one, twenty four are still being cleared of of debris by Tex-. I by tax dot but they're expected to be opened later today the agencies also assessing conditions to restart ferry service to the peninsula. Houston's transit authority. Metro.

"It's the way they do business. I like the way this company is doing business. They are aware that there are more than five thousand Michigan-based federal workers affected by this foolishness and the partial government shutdown many, not receiving paychecks, and so Beaumont health CEO John FOX's decided to do something about that. And John is on the line with us right now. Good morning. John. I salute you for this. And I'll let you spill the beans if you will good morning. Martin Paul and thank you for having me this morning, again, Farrah ER visits are surprised for people medically and often financially and given the situation, but we've decided to do step up and say, we're gonna wave deductibles and copays or any federal worker who's been furloughed or is out due to the government partial government shutdown, and we're retroactive that for the start of the whole situation back to December twenty second, and we will leave it in force. So the shutdown goes away. But again for those patients who are facing fifty or one hundred fifty dollars deductibles or co pays. We're gonna wait though, they don't they don't have to worry about the financial burden at their federal employees impacted by this I salute you for that John FOX CEO of Beaumont health, and he could have very easily just said from this day forward. But you heard him it's retro retroactive to midnight, Saturday, December twenty second and in any government, employees, federal employees who previously received emergency or urgent care. Dating back to that date can contact Beaumont to adjust their Bill. So you're you're even going backwards in helping with some really compassionate extraordinary care, which I know you like to say that that's what you're offering always at Beaumont health. John. That's right, Paul. I mean, we think we need to walk the talk. And I think that this is a good step in that direction. And we know a lot of people are being impacted by this in our ER, we do over six hundred thousand visits a year across our nine emergency rooms, and if we can help them a little bit with this. We're happy to do it. And we'll like we'll let you saw the political situation. Yeah. Nobody nobody in Washington is gonna like my way to solve this problem. Be that as it may. This is also applying to the insured family members during this partial shutdown. Correct anybody covered by federal workers plan and our assumption is that the federal worker whose negatively impacted by the shutdown is the breadwinner. And so when we thought it through and how it might impact an entire family. We just said all right? We're going to open it up and not only for the individual employee. But for all the dependence they may have that are also covered by their insurance. Well, they have it simply put Beaumont health is waving the emergency and urgent care copays and deductibles for unpaid federal workers and their family members during this government, shutdown Beaumont, health CEO, John FOX. I salute you for stepping up and doing what you can to help these these poor workers caught in the middle of this match. That's going on in Washington. This childish match that's going on in Washington. Thank you, John. God bless all right. Thank you. All have a good morning. You do the same that should offer some relief to the more than five thousand Michigan-based federal workers who are affected by this partial government shutdown and this full government fiasco, John FOX Beaumont health CEO at just about seven fourteen on the poll..
