Europe's coronavirus resurgence: Are countries ready to prevent a 'second wave'?

"According to the UK Daily Mail. Second wave is striking EUROPE, Spain reintroduces lock down Greece's He's worrying rising cases. The virus is more active in Germany amid warnings friends could quote lose control at any moment. According to the UK Daily Mail. A second wave of covert 19 appears to be striking Europe, forcing Spain to reimpose lockdowns in case is speaking to a three month high in Greece. Head of Germany's doctors union has declared the country is already in the midst of the second wave because people have flouted social distancing rules. Well, this is perfectly predictable. You can't people keep people locked down forever. For literally years in time. It's not a thing that you could dio instead, you're going to have to at some point allow people who are young and healthy to go out there, and if they get it, they get it. That is fact what Sweden is doing in Sweden, which remember until five minutes ago was the bad guy. Sweden has basically flattened her. It looks like Sweden may have reached her immunity is what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, in other countries, they got a problem. In fact it it seems pretty obvious what's happening here. Italy has not seen a second object. Why hasn't Italy Tina? Second uptick because they got nailed. Basically, here's the rule If it burned three population maybe you're done. It is not burned through your population. You probably are not done. Spain's 8500 cases over the weekend and all inclusive resort in Majorca was shut down. Two towns north of Madrid has been put under strict lock down as well. Finland today announced plans to reintroduce recommendations to work from home whenever possible. By August 1st, Finland's cases had risen by more than 300% in two weeks. That run understands us that governor of Florida can't believe. Also governor of Finland Donald Trump, obviously blowing it over in Finland is blowing it over in France as well. Authorities in France grappling with a sharp increase in fresh cases, which has seen more than 7002 infections within the last week. As well as a rise in the number of people being treated for covert 19 in the I C U Around 1200 cases are being reported for day. Two weeks ago, he rolling average with 719. Meanwhile, in Germany, they're seeing an uptick as well. Some 730 cases have been reported each day on average this week against the 460 being recorded her day about two weeks ago. So the second wave is, in fact hitting Europe. It really is kind of the first wife. It really is more the 1st 1 because the first wave Basically just got a little bit squished. And delayed Basically, everything just got delayed. Meanwhile, Sweden seems to be coming out the other end of this. According to Newsweek. As of Sunday, the latest death rate in Sweden for 100,000 people was reported to be 56.4 figure is lower than that reported in the U. K 69.6, Spain 16.8 and Italy, according to the latest report Sunday by Johns Hopkins University. The UK currently has the world's 4th 4th highest death toll Spain in Italy, where the former to European countries hit worse by the outbreak. Sweden's latest case fatality ratio proportion of deaths compared total cases was reported to be about 7.1% and figure is more than half the percentage reported in the UK, half that of Italy in Belgium and nearly half that of France. The reason being that a lot of young people are getting it in Sweden, and he's burned through some of the young population and now they're basically done. Sweden's 70 rolling average daily new cases has been mostly declining since as far back as April 16th when the average was in 99. The average dropped it to two average daily new deaths on August 2nd, according to world Ometer. New infections for 100,000 people in Sweden reported in the past 14 days has dropped from 46% compared to that reported in the 14 days prior. Meanwhile, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, each spiking between 58 206% in new cases. New cases in Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the other places that supposedly handled it better than Sweden have also seen. Their percentage is increasing at around three times the percent drop in new cases scene in Sweden in the past two weeks. So what That sort of says is, it looks like Sweden. Maybe this thing it may look like it's over in Sweden. Under technologies epidemiologist, Sweden's Public health agency. What we've cut down on movement in society quite a lot, if compared how much we travel in Scandinavian countries. The decrease in travel is the same in Sweden, as in the neighboring countries. In many ways, the voluntary measures we've put in place in Sweden have been just as effective as complete lock down in other countries. In other words, when you tell people don't travel, all that much people take it pretty seriously. The point here is that for all the talk about how we know how to handle this, and we just have to shut everything down, Lock down this lock down there. Sweden and locked down and may be the smartest of all sweet may be the smartest of all.

Coronavirus: Belgium, Andorra, and Bahamas added to UK quarantine list

"Today's front pages are filled with stories suggesting that the UK may impose quarantine restrictions on travel is coming. From France, meanwhile, new fourteen day restrictions have been imposed on Belgium, and you're and the Bahamas Katie as what would have it. You'll joining us from Paris. How likely is it? Do you think that you will be told to isolate when you return? My Luck's GonNa depend depending how the next few days go as it was interesting is clearly Francis the country where we've had corona virus infection levels are going up. I'm not just saying this because I like to go home and not have to self quarantine for two weeks, but it is not such a jump as we have seen in places like Spain. It could. He is the wrong direction, it's going in is high. High priority for the government to keep track of because if they were to miss something, they thought they needed a quarantine. It could actually have quite large effect just because of the number of British tourists who do tend to go to France. But also for that same reason I think while we have seen and we saw Spain the government is quite happy to make these decisions and just take the hit is interesting. Chance. This at this morning where he was saying, we will not hesitate of personally think that is quite like the Sweet Vegas and government that most air purchase at perhaps not in place by the end of the month. But I think this is going to be a graduating the data as it goes.

Assisted Suicide for the Healthy

"Physician assisted suicide is sold to the public as a compassionate measure necessary to spare those who have no reasonable chance of recovery from the unbearable pain and suffering of the last days of their life. But in every context in which it's been made legal, however, what may be called euthanasia by another name has never remained limited to those rare instances on which it was sold. There are reasons that this particular slope has proven. So slippery literally everywhere, it's ever been made legal once it's decided that certain lives are. Not. Worth. Living well the list of people eligible for physician assisted suicide inevitably grows and as a list of people without intrinsic value grows, it becomes impossible to reevaluate lives based on some other criteria perhaps convenience or financial cost. Then it's a small step indeed from eligible to die to expected to die and wherever doctor assisted suicide is legalized and another Bayton switch from what is sold to the public. The category of terminal illness is often expanded to include chronic illnesses and permanent disabilities even mental illness and depression is Now considered sufficient justification for suicide in places such as Belgium and the Netherlands given this trajectory. It's only a matter of time before we dispense altogether with any requirement of any illness and fact that seems to be what's happening in the Netherlands a recently introduced bill. There would allow healthy individuals over the age of seventy five to request assisted suicide. If they had quote a strong death, wish for at least two months, the bill which is expected to be up for votes time in two, thousand, twenty, one would according. To the bill's sponsor, give the elderly the choice at an advanced age if they consider their lives complete to die with dignity with careful health thankfully, the two Christian parties in the governing coalition strongly opposed this measure, but it's GonNa be tough to keep it from becoming law after all bills only the next logical step in the whole Dutch trajectory having a brace what novelist Walker Percy called Sanitize Syndrome. Every promise to limit euthanasia in any way has only been broken everywhere and any so-called safeguards have been swept aside. For example, the people were promised that only those certifiably in their right mind would be euthanized. That was a lie after all anyone who goes into an American emergency room and tells doctors they have a strong death wish are gun with live with they'd be diagnosed with suicidal ideation admitted to the psych ward to not do this would be medical malpractice. Suicidal ideation is rightly regarded as a symptom of an underlying mental disorder and people who have untreated mental illnesses are not allowed to make life and death decisions or. At least they weren't in Oregon's doctor assisted suicide was legalized there over ninety six percent of people given lethal drugs never underwent a psychiatric evaluation to not evaluate at all is neglect. But if this Dutch bill becomes law, any elderly person who admits suicidal wishes won't be helped they'll be referred to those who will help them turn their wishes into reality. All of this is why as our recent what would you say video says? So clearly, there is nothing compassionate about physician assisted suicide nothing in fact, it's the exact. Opposite of compassion it's the abdication of civilized peoples responsibility to offer compassion to those who need it most when they need it most in his book Fanta Syndrome Walker Percy described how a society evolves to the point of thinking that killing patients. Instead of healing them is compassionate a psychiatrist he wrote of well trained in exquisitely credential doctors who quote, turn their backs on the hippocratic oath and kill millions of useless people unborn children born malformed children all for the good of mankind with his literary prophecy that was written. In nineteen eighty seven is becoming reality today. Some form of assisted suicide is legal in nine states and the District of Columbia that number only GonNa grow unless we can somehow convince people what true compassion is and make the idea that assisted suicide is compassionate unthinkable. So come to what would you say dot org for this latest video on assisted suicide in EUBOEA equipped to make the case and also please share it with your pastor community leaders and legislators. It's literally life and death issue

Locked Down in Switzerland and Belgium

"Start with Stephen mcfeely he operates being be on Ireland's dingle peninsula in just before the pandemic head Stephen an interest in the hotel Oberland in October and Switzerland that's where he's had to ride out the first few months of the global lockdown good and. My goodness. My Irish friend is learning Spitzer dykes. Good here in the Alps where I've been for four months. Now in splendid isolation, my plan originally was just to come for February and March, but I've I'm still here right well, what does the vibe in Switzerland right now there's a positive vibe. The society is reopening. Tourism travel has started again just no we're on the same level as it was before we had two weekends where there was crazy crowds here huge big crowds from all over Switzerland everybody who was here was from Switzerland or had to be from Switzerland. They weren't necessarily all Swiss because there's lots of international people living in Geneva and Derek and whatnot but everybody from within the barger of Switzerland over with crowds, and then it just died and Monday to. Friday went back to being really really quiet. Okay. Well, this is sort of the very beginnings of the rekindling of tourism I would imagine it'll be people traveling with within their own countries first, and then traveling within Europe, and then finally international travel and transatlantic travel. Yes. That's exactly what we're seeing. The borders here have just reopened. So we're expecting Germans and some Austrians and maybe some French to come now also, I don't anticipate huge numbers like that would have been heretofore. One. Very noticeable thing in the Valley of course, there's no American visitors. As you know, the valley also is very popular with. Chinese travelers Indians many people from Dubai and Saudi Arabia would come here and they're not here this year. So there's a noticeable difference there. So the people getting the real cultural change would be the French speaking. Swiss. German speaking part of his Switzerland and not even leaving their own country exactly. Fifty percent of our guests. Last week were French speaking Swiss and it was the first time I've ever actually met those people and I would say to them. Are you French Swiss would say no, no, we are. All MOM and so I I learned something new immediately the K. The identify as swirl. They were saying exactly what you just said they said it's like we are in a different country it's very dramatic here it's different toossion either those on the do shut down it was really cool. They were very excited to see a different part of their own country. So that was wonderful. Now Stephen you own a hotel in Ireland in Dingle Peninsula and now you own a hotel in Switzerland in Loudoun valley two of my favorite places as a businessman working in both these countries how do you compare the support getting from the government and how the two governments are dealing with this crisis? Well, the difference is. Very. Big. I'm still on team. Ireland. So I want to be positive about my own country, but there's not a lot of support coming. Heretofore in Switzerland for example, within two weeks of the crisis occurring. The. Swiss Federal Council which is the Swiss government offered ten percent of the previous year's turnover and So that's quite a considerable amount of money and they offered that as a loan which was repayable over seven years. Zero percent interest. So they're not looking to profit from it and in Ireland we really struggled to get some assistance. And we got ten thousand euros of overdraft line of credit and but repayable at seven and a half percent interest in Switzerland. We got three hundred thousand. So it's quite a big difference there no-interest at all. No interest at all. Of course, Switzerland may have much stronger and deeper reservists than Ireland, but they were able to immediately come up with assistance very little bureaucracy paperwork, and they immediately got to help us in Ireland. The experience was just simply much different to the government really weren't as proactive for as immediate as were here in Switzerland. The roots here what's around her a lot less strict as well There is a two meter rule here, but I haven't seen anybody wearing masks very much, which is kinda shocking for me because I know in Ireland the whole north of is people should be wearing masks. People definitely are observing social distance. One of my friends said to me that the two meter rule has actually brought Swiss people closer together so. That is so insightful to the Swiss society. It's more difficult thing. It's more difficult thing for Irish people or Italian people are Spanish. Two meters distance than it would be for this people or maybe the. Scandinavians. I can see by home people are wondering. Is the Irish pub culture ever going to come back the way it was with social distancing whereas in. Switzerland. Here for me like I'm I'm in the Alps I'm surrounded by fresh air and. Of of lovely space and it's been a wonderful place to be stranded, I don't even want to complain about it because although I I was stranded here for four months. It was the perfect place I felt very safe. I might have felt different if I was in the middle of Zurich or something or Geneva but I felt very safe. I'd in the Alps and it is lovely and peaceful and quiet, and of course, that's what people are coming here for anyway

Rolling Stones Drop ‘Scarlet,’ Previously Unreleased 1974 Track Featuring Jimmy Page (Listen)

"The Stones rolled out details their upcoming goat's head soup box set earlier this past month, But the most exciting elements for their fans was a previously unreleased song. According with Jimmy Page that you're listening to year called Scarlet sets not coming out to a September the fourth. But this week, the band released the highly anticipated track. Song was cut in October in 1974 with Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, both handling guitar duties and traffics Rick Gretch on the base. Pete says. My recollection is that we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session. They were just leaving and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimi decided to stay. We weren't actually cutting. It is a track was basically just a demo was to get the feel of it, but it came out well over the line up like that. You know, we better be using it. 1975 page told Rolling Stone that Rolling Stone magazine that he thought the track was supposed to be a B side of a stones record. It sounded very similar style and mood to those blonde on blonde tracks. Jimmy said. He was great. Really good. We stayed up all night when down Island Studios where Keith put some reggae guitars over one section. I just put some solos on it. It was eight in the morning and next day before he was able to do that. I remember first, jamming this song with Jimmy and Keith in Ronnie's basement student, Jang said his great session. A new edition of Goat's head soup also features previously unreleased tracks Criss cross and all the rage along with the rare demos and a complete concert, taped at a gig in Belgium in 1973. Stones originally planned on touring American football Stadium this year, But certainly that gonna happen this year anyway. During the down time, they've released a new song called Living in a Ghost Town. The first original songs. He's 2012. So the stones are at it. Interesting, Jimmy Page story. Never heard this one before. No, I like the song though. It's very Yeah, I kind of did, too. Yes, I didn't know if I love seeing old documentaries. We've been watching a lot of stuff about Laurel Canyon and like Ringo was actually really good friends with Mickey Dolenz, the drummer for the Monkeys, which was always a joke that the monkeys were created to be like the American beetles. And so it's it's I like seeing who was actually friends with whom and to see that I never knew Jimmy Page in the Stones ever had any crossover and the fact that he played on the song is really cool. Jimmy Page lives in a house across the street from Murray Gellar's old house in Sonny. And apparently, he's quite noisy in the neighbourhood,

China says it will retaliate after US orders its Houston consulate to close

"With the Chinese. Let's deal with the hacking situation and the story that broke yesterday and even before this, we had heard that the Chinese were actively trying to steal intellectual property on Research for a Corona virus vaccine and it comes down to the Chinese know that this virus originated in Wuhan. The Chinese know that they misled the world. They misled the United States they misled. Originally, the World Health Organisation, which has become complicity with the Chinese. On multiple levels and the Chinese did a disservice to humanity. Let's look at it through the prism and the lenses of us here in the United States. That if they would have let us know in December Or early January what they knew and if the Chinese would have locked down Wuhan sooner, even just a week sooner. They didn't tell their own people between January 14th in the 21st and there was a massive spread and rule on at that point. They don't even tell their own people or they didn't move to lock things down. And again the Chinese Communist government completely to blame here for mishandling and mismanaging and lying to the world. And with that said the Chinese don't want Toby. Shown up that they don't want to be behind the eight ball. They want to also be the ones that say, Hey, we've got the best vaccine against Corona virus. Instead of all of the other pharmaceutical and research and institutions around the world that are working diligently and feverishly. On a vaccine whether it's German scientists whether it's French, whether it's what we're hearing out of Oxford in the UK Fizer here in the United States and, of course, their branches all around the world, Moderna. You know, that's just a fraction of who's working. Johnson and Johnson here in the United States is just a fraction of who's working on this vaccine. And the Chinese were we heard this two months ago. I talked about this on the program months ago that the Chinese were tryingto hack and steal data from all over the world so they could be first. Was saying, Hey, we got the vaccine. And now we have two Chinese hackers that have been formally charged with trying to steal research on the Corona virus vaccine. Trying to steal from private companies trying to steal from our government agencies as well. And this is what came down from the DOJ yesterday. And these two guys apparently work that the Chinese Ministry of State Security and the Gwang Dong State Security Department To lead a campaign, which the DOJ the assistant attorney General, John Demmer said was a sweeping global computer intrusion campaign. That's the nice way to say hacking intellectual property theft just going in and stealing. Chinese are very, very good at this. That's why they've gotten so far militarily. From a industrial standpoint, they stolen countless countless hundreds of billions or trillions. An intellectual property. Lee. Zhou Yu, 34 years old and dung. Jeez, I got zero J A Z a shot. G, uh 31. According to the reports, they targeted intellectual property and confidential business information. Held by Pharmaceutical companies and those that are steaming full speed ahead toward a corona virus treatment. Treatments. So the therapeutics the testing issues, the vaccines they were trying to rip off and bust into everything. And this is what the Chinese have done again. Defense contractors. Why do you think the latest generation of the Chinese fighter jet looks just like the F 35 Because they ripped off was the Lockheed Martin or north of Groman. They They controlled her back in the late to thousands like 8 4009 And they stole a whole lot of defence information on the F 35 ripped it off. So it's defense contractors. They rip off the pharmaceutical companies. A computer high tech medical device companies. The Chinese even have a history of busting into solar energy companies here in the United States video game development They're ripping off information. They're stealing codes. It's nonstop on what the Chinese do their absolute thieves. When it comes to intellectual property. According to the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago. And were ongoing as of the date of the indictment, according to AA de MERS. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets. Establishing themselves as a prolific threat to the U. S and foreign networks. And these charges from the feds. They say that these Chinese hackers tried to access the accounts of other organizations that we're not government organizations. They tried to bust also into dissident organizations or actual dissidents or clergy, human rights activists. Is it trying to get Intel and so they can punish and and go after anything that's a threat to the Chinese Communist. Regime. That's what this comes down to. Yeah, Lee and Dung they were working on high tech companies. That was their focus, but they had a whole team. They work of others, obviously, but Lee and Dung they were, they were focused on busting into high tech companies here in the United States, also in South Korea, and Sweden and Spain, Australia, Belgium, Britain. Germany, Japan, Lithuania Nothing about a stony and Latvia. But Lithuania and these indictments were filed in U. S District Court in Washington. And shows that Beijing is using fight cyber theft. In a worldwide campaign. To quote Robbe replicate and replace non Chinese companies in the global marketplace. And then there's also said that China is providing the safe haven for these criminals in order for the Chinese government to get all this information that these guys were Pretty much on the Chinese kami payroll. China has not taken its place alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals to exchange or in exchange for those criminals being on call toe work for the benefit of the state. Again to feed the Chinese Communist Party's insatiable hunger. For American and other non Chinese companies. And to steal their hard earned intellectual property, including covert 19 research, according to Des Murs, assistant attorney general It's a huge problem it has been, and that's why the Chinese are as far as they are. So on the heels of that now we go to the next chapter. And that's that the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, has been ordered closed and, you know he's got his finger on this pulse and is spot on and is not a great job and doesn't pull punches. Mince words. And that's Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio. He gets and has gotten the Chinese threat for a very long time. And what Marco Rubio said today in Fox Business interview is that the Chinese Consulate in Houston is a front for a massive spy organization. And the State Department has ordered that consulate in Houston. To shut down, he said. This consulate is basically a front. It's kind of the central node of a massive spy operation. Commercial espionage, defense espionage. Also influence agents try to influence Congress, according to Marco Rubio. And by the way, Senator Rubio is the acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And he said that this closure of the Houston Chinese consulate was long overdue. And he said the State Department Was completely right Team make this move, and the State Department says that this is absolutely necessary to protect intellectual property here in the United States and private information. And of course, the Chinese. They're going ballistic. They're saying that they could retaliate. That this is uncalled for. This is a gray GIs. We could retaliate. China China When you get there, try to get you to send another virus our way. Is that how you going to retaliate? And Rubio also predicted that China Would then retaliate by closing one of our diplomatic facilities. In China. And if you wanna get a snapshot of what we have in China, Of course, we have the official U. S embassy in Beijing, but we have five consulates around China. We have a consulate in Shanghai. We have a U. S consulate in Gwang Ju. We have a U. S consulate and Cheng do and Wuhan Great and in Shenyang, So we have apparently five other Consulates. On top of our embassy. So the expectation is the Chinese going to retaliate by shutting down one of our places. Hey, what about this fire? What about the Houston Fire Department being called to this embassy or this consulate? Has to shut down by end of business like 45 o'clock on Friday. So the Chinese have to shut this thing down and get out by the end of this week. By Friday afternoon, And last night, there was a fire at the embassy Smoke and Houston Fire department responded. What do you think happened? Where was the fire? What were they doing? Hold on to that thought, because we'll wrap up this whole story with that next. Here on Schmidt, I

"At the beginning of an epidemic, it's essential to discover the source of the disease. For scientists who do that work, it's extremely challenging and without risk to their own health. But the scientists who played an essential role in discovering bulla way back in nineteen, seventy six doesn't always get the credit he deserves in today's episode. We explore the history of a bowl and the consequences of scientific exploitation. It's part of our week of episodes here on the show celebrating and recognizing the contributions of black scientists enjoy. You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Safai here with none other than NPR East Africa correspondent Ater, Peralta Hey there ater. Hey, Mattie, thank you so much for talking to us all the way from Kenya. I know there's like an eight hour time difference. I am thrilled. But I want to open with a quick question. Who discovered Ebola and do not Google it. First of all. How dare you asked me a question? I should definitely know the answer to, and don't and yeah I already, Google Bet. Came up was. A Belgian microbiologist, but I think you're about to tell me. There's more to this there. Absolutely, there always is right so. Cheated. What you probably saw is a bunch of white westerners like. Dr John Jack. Yembeh does not yeah. He was not one of the people that came up. Yes, so, he's Congolese doctor and today he's doing really important work heading up the response to the current Ebola outbreak in Congo, but back in nineteen, seventy six, we embed. First doctor to. COLLECT ANY BOLA sample. His crucial role in discovering Bolla is often just a footnote, a lot of the history of people. Has Been Written? Without your name. Yes but. You know this Yes it. Did Not quite. Today on the show correcting the record on a Bola, the story of Dr, John Jack Mugabe and what he's doing now to ensure African scientists are part of writing it's. To some in the medical community, it's a controversial move. Okay Ater, so we're talking about a Congolese Dr John, Shaq. And his role in discovering a bola. When do we begin? So when I sat down with him at his office in Kinshasa. He said we should start in. Hundred seventy three. We had just gotten his PhD microbiology at the Riga Institute in Belgium, and he could have stayed in Europe, but he decided to come back to Congo, but when I arrive via. The condition of work were not I had no lab have no. Mice for experimentation, so it was very difficult to work here. Yeah, it's tough to do lab work without a lab, you know. Without a library to instead he took a job as a field epidemiologist and just a couple of years later in Nineteen seventy-six. was sent from Kinshasa the capital of Congo to the village of Yambuku to investigate a mysterious outbreak. it's the first recorded outbreak of Ebola, but no one knew that at the time they thought maybe it was typhoid or yellow fever, and he goes to this local hospital, and he says he finds it completely empty. Why was nobody there? Local residents thought the hospital was the source of the infection and people had died there. But in the morning when they heard Giambi was sent from the capital, the thought he had medicine till they started to come back to the hospital, and we started seeing patients. So so, what's he seeing? When the patients come in, he was seeing. People who were very weak fever? They had headaches I started to to make the physical time. But at that time will have no gloves. And, of course he had to draw blood, but when I removed. They're the sit inch. Both continue to spread out. What I am to see these phenomenal. And also my fingers or with a bow. Wow. Yeah, so he says he he would wash his hands a lot, but really he says it was just luck that he didn't catchable. Yeah, definitely I mean. That's amazing that he's in there and there's no gloves and there's patients and they don't really know what's going on, and he was able to not get it in at this point. We MP he was startled. But then three nurses died that night and a Belgian nun who was working in the village, also got sick with fever. All the nuns had been vaccinated against typhoid and yellow fever. So at this point me MBA was like. Oh, it's probably not those things. Yeah! I mean in the severity to the deaths with this outbreak. He started to realize that this was something different, so he. He convinced one none took back to Kinshasa with him. So what happens next? She died at a hospital a couple of days later, but he took blood samples, and he sent them to Belgium for testing and the guy on the other end that was Peter Piot. Who at the time was with the Institute for Tropical Medicine in Belgium, the guy who turned up from Google search. Yeah. That's right, and so he and other scientists start working to identify the culprit. The CDC in the US gets involved and the realize. This is a new virus that caused hemorragic. Call it Ebola. They name it after a river by the village where it was discovered. So, what you saw out in the field, the blood samples guide all of this plays a crucial role in the history of right. It was huge, but it's PR who gets the bulk of the credit for discovering all up and you can tell this bothers John Jock membe. If you don't recognize the work done in the field, I, it is not correct. it is a team. You know it is a team. Pr Actually wrote a memoir no time to lose and he does mention. But just in passing as a bright scientist, whose constantly pestering him for more resources. Has talked about this well. Peter Pyatt, facetime video, so I got on the phone. He's now the director of the prestigious London, School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and I asked him if he felt at all responsible for writing. Out of his history of Ebola I think that's a comment, but my book less not an attempt to write than that's history of Boll and sold more. My personal experience is more biographies that sense. Was this kind of like an awkward conversation to have ater. Yeah I mean especially because he's Belgian and Belgium was the colonial power in Congo. Ultimately, he looks at it with a little bit of distant. That at the time African scientists they were simply excluded and white scientists parachuted in they took samples, wrote papers that were published in the West and they took all the credit he so he actually said he did. In that actually surprised me and I think. Part of the reason. I feel that he so comfortable. Talking about this is because he's in an academic setting. I think in universities across the world. Students are talking about privilege, so he seems like he is very comfortable having this conversation right now. I mean there's there's something very weird kind of about that coming from him right as a person who has admitted to taking part in exploitative science, absolutely and one of the good things is that he says that things are changing. We mbappe for example has received several international awards just recently for pioneering. The first effective treatment for Ebola reflects our stinky you. Say the politicians in global health in science, General. So okay. I want to ask you about the treatment in a minute, but to put it very bluntly. Have there actually been any concrete steps to try to change this power dynamic in the global health field? Because this is certainly not one of you know two stories. This is one of many many stories. There is I mean look. NBA has made a decision that many thought unthinkable leaving just a few years ago, he decided that all of the blood samples collected during this most recent Ebola. Epidemic will stay in Congo, so if anyone wants to study this outbreak, they will have to come to his institute. I bet that has ruffled some feathers though. I have I've heard from some American scientists. Who have privately expressed frustrations in the are really the ones who have led the way in studying Ebola, but peanut understands that decision when you think about how African scientists have been historically treated, and he says that Western scientists should just get over it. We have to wake up key things one. The world is changing too much endless Nah it's so weird to hear him say a matter of fairness, ater matter of fairness. Okay, so before we move on, tell me about the treatment that Mugabe worked on. So this is the thing that makes him smile right. We embiid calls it the most important achievement of his life, and it goes back to one thousand, nine, hundred, five during another equal outbreak in Congo. Eighty one percent of people infected with Ebola in this village were dying, and he wondered if antibodies developed bipolar survivors could be siphoned from their blood and used to treat new cases, so he gave sick patients transfusions of blood from a bowl of survivors. Too He injected Ebola patients with the blood of survivors. It vision. And seven survive, he says the medical establishment brought him off because he didn't have a control group. That's what they told him. But if this idea was accepted by scientists. We see a lot of life. Okay I mean to be fair. That is a really small group with no control among some other stuff. But on the other hand, it doesn't mean that he was wrong. You know that it should be totally dismissed, and maybe if more scientists looked into, it collaborated with him, maybe tried to replicate that data in some way, they could have learned something with him right because we now know that he was in fact correct about the antibodies. Yeah, I mean that's right in the context is important because I think what really eat set him. Is that maybe lots and lots of people could have been saved during the West. West Africa outbreak, which happened from two thousand, thirteen to two, thousand sixteen, and look just this year that science became the foundation of what is now proven to be the first effective treatment against the Bulla that is saving seventy percent of the people who are treated with amazing. Is He getting credit for that? At this point, he is yeah, absolutely okay, so how does look back on all of this week? What's what's his view on this is so he's he seventy seven, so he's obviously thinking about his legacy. One of the things that he told me is that he's always dreamed that big science could come out of Congo, and partly because of him, that's more likely happen. He got a commitment from Japan to build a state of the art research facility in Kinshasa and in the lab, just a few feet from his office where we talked US scientists were using advanced machines to sequence DNA of the Bulla samples that have to stay here in Congo Okay so moon bay, doctor and scientists who started in the Congo with no lab has a lab and is soon getting an even better one to do his work. Yeah, exactly, yeah, now I have my share. In. So I have my I have. A good subculture will bring joy. But he also has vice rate with micro biologist without Nice, I, asked myself that every day. And, so you know what he says, his biggest legacy won't be that. He helped to discovery or cure for it. It'll be if another young Congolese. Scientist finds himself with an interesting blood sample. He'll be able to investigate it

"To Rome to talk directly to Pope Pious the Ninth Problem It was hoped that he could use his influence to get France to honor its financial promises, but her behavior in Rome really only made a mess of things the moment she arrived in Vatican City. Carla's conduct wavered between nervously, exhibiting sort of the Grayson decorum that one would expect of royalty someone of her position, and then moments where she just completely abandoned social mores. She was granted a meeting with the pope, but when that was over, she was left, really deflated. There was not a lot that the people state could do for her 'cause. The next day her behavior was at times angry, and at other times defeated, and then at a formal dinner that night she declared seemingly out of nowhere. It is obvious that someone is trying to poison me. She believed one hundred percent that there was someone on her staff that was trying to poison her, and that the pope was her only possible protection. The morning after that dinner. where she had that outbursts, she barged into the papal apartments to tell the Pope of this alleged treachery she had not been eating because of her fear of poison and pious the night this. She was unsettled asked if she wouldn't like something to eat. He had been having breakfast with a cup of hot chocolate when she got there. And she declared that she was starving, dipped her hand into his cup of hot chocolate, and then it's like the liquid her fingers. The pope ordered a second cup initially intending it for our Lada, but she was insistent that she would only drink from the same vessel as he was because of this whole poisoning concern. He was able to calm her down and get her to speak about the struggles that Mexico's installed monarchy was facing, but she kept asking him about poison antidotes through the whole conversation. He always suggested that prayer was an antidote papayas. The ninth recognized that Carlotta was obviously not okay, and he attempted to put a plan together to help. He did not react harshly. He kept his cool. He had two doctors come to see her, but in his note to the cardinal that he had asked to arrange for those people to come pious, the night asked that the doctors introduce themselves as Chamberlain's because he feared. Feared, if they came in and said they were doctors there to examine her or her mental state that Carlotta might become even more upset because Colorado was also suspicious of her staff, the pope asked the cardinal to also have her apartments cleared of everyone, so they can tell her. The assassin had been dealt with Cardinal Antonelli also reached out to her brothers Leopold, the second king of Belgium and Philippe Count of Flanders..

"PODCAST. I'm Holly Ryan I'm Tracy Wilson. Oh Tracy we talked our last show but because the world is kind of a mess it's really really gotten to be a tricky dance to figure out what seems appropriate for podcasts subjects. Yeah I mean there have certainly been other times in our many years of working on the show where I've been like man. It feels weird to talk about anything else. But none of those have been quite the ongoing ever present situation of living in self-isolation in a pandemic. Yeah Yeah it's a strange thing I mean. Part of it is that I think our head spaces are just different than normal so even our perception of like the whole process of selecting topics shifts a little bit Yeah I I am constantly having this this inner monologue of Lake Is this how I would behave normally says because This is a stressful. And we're is this how I would behave normally is this. Is this reaction something that like? I I've lost all sense of what what normal is in terms of both my behavior in my judgment. I was squirreling around you and I have talked about how a lot of our episodes are kind of informed by the fact that we're living in these times and in some ways they relate to the the world of contagious disease and The trajectory of of medical knowledge throughout history but then This week I was Kinda like I really want to talk about something. That's not that And then I was like I know I'll do a mad. Royal People love those which then led me to you will sometimes see her called Charlotte of Belgium and other times Carlotta of Mexico She actually very consciously sort of made a name change in there and part of the reason that the story of Charlotte and Maximilian of Mexico is sometimes a little lost in historical. Discussion is that it was playing out at the same time as the US civil war and that event the US of A. Were also played a part in the events that led to Charlotte of Belgium becoming Carlotta of Mexico The two of them are tied to basically all of the Houses of Europe so they were very connected to a lot of important history as well. We have an episode on Maximillian in our archive that will be an upcoming classic But CARLOTTA doesn't get a lot of discussion in it particularly her mental state and some of the things she was going through separate from her husband as things in their lives gorie stressful as I said she is sometimes called Charlotte. Sometimes Carlotta depending on. What biography read We are going to start by calling her charlotte and we will switch over to Carlotta in the narrative at the point. Where she her style herself started going by that name. And this I think and I hope for everyone's entertainment and maybe a little bit of escape has a mix of everything. There's some political history. There is a mad. Royal Element is very complicated. Marriage heads up. There is a little bit of concern about germs. There is Disregard for personal space as it relates to food safety so if that is something that you're very uncomfortable with at the moment understandably just no When we start talking about the pope maybe jump out for a little while. Princess Charlotte was born on June seventh eighteen forty in lake in Belgium with a very long name re Charlotte Amalie. Augustine Victoire Clementine Leopoldine. I said that last bit almost as though she was more German. Her father was legal. The I of Belgium her mother was princess. Louise of Orleans and Charlotte was named for Leopold's deceased first wife. The Princess Charlotte of Great Britain and Charlotte's own mother died of tuberculosis in eighteen. Fifty and from that point on most of the maternal influence in her life came from her grandmother Maria Amalia of Naples and Sicily. She was queen of France through marriage to Louis. Philippe the first but Charlotte's father leopold very president. After his wife died he spent more time with. His children isn't necessarily good at it but Charlotte in particular really worked to kind of gain his affections and she seemed to be very fascinated by the nuts and bolts of his job as a ruler. And so they kind of became pals in eighteen fifty six. The Teenage Charlotte was considered to be quite a beauty. Met archduke Maximilian. When he visited Brussels he was twenty four a handsome naval officer and a liberal idealist. Charlotte felt for him really almost immediately and it was mutual while leopold the I had been hoping for a marriage between his daughter and Portugal's ruler the fifth he ultimately lead Charlotte. Choose who she wished to marry. That choice of course was maximilian. Incidentally they were both cousins of Queen Victoria. Who was initially against this match calling? Maximilian quote one of those worthless. Habsburg archdukes he. Was there charming there that he quickly won? Both Victoria and Albert over and Maximilian continued to Woo Charlotte. While they're royal houses worked out the business details of their marriage that took about six months while things like dowries and and agreements in terms of the the union and what it would mean politically Were worked out and as this happened. They essentially kind of dated. Maximilian would visit me would tell the princess of his home which he hoped would soon be hers but then finally until I twenty seventh eighteen fifty seven at the age of Seventeen Charlotte married into the Austrian Royal Family Amid Marrying Maximilian Austrian Emperor Francis. Joseph became her brother in law. Maximilian was his younger brother. The newlyweds left shortly after the wedding for Italy. Where Maximilian had been appointed viceroy of Lamberti in Venice? Charlotte really loved Venice. But the marriage wasn't quite as romantic as their courtship had been. I turned out that Maximilian had no intention of living a monogamous life. He frequently left Charlotte at home to go back to Austria where his partying and womanizing were just really legendary. Exactly how Charlotte felt about. This is a little bit unclear. Some biographies it seem like Maximilian was the love of her life. And that she tolerated his behavior because she was so devoted to him when the second Italian War of independence broke out in eighteen. Fifty nine Maximilian and Carlotta left Italy for Trieste where Maximilian built spectacular castle. Miramar on the Adriatic seed and at this point Trieste was still part of the HABSBURG empire later that same year. Maximilian decided to visit Brazil and left in November. Charlotte was with him but when they stopped in Madeira on the way Charlotte decided she would stay there. She could not handle being see but her husband happily continued on as planned which eventually caused some problems for the two of them. The exact nature of their problems isn't really documented. But there have long been stories that Maximilian came back from Brazil with a sexually transmitted infection. You can find all kinds of historical gossip about this situation and whether or not that infection resulted in one or both of them being unable to you. have children. We don't really know it's the kind of thing that's always referenced. Very sort of obliquely But things did his his own account by his valid suggests that something happened in all of this that really kind of pretty much shut down the romance angle of their their relationship and throughout all of this though to the outside World Charlotte remained a doting wife and the couple presented themselves publicly as deeply in love and still very devoted to one another whether or not Charlotte had looked the other way about his infidelities early on in their marriage. Whatever happened in Brazil seemed to have been the last straw for her in terms of them. Having physical romantic relationship the private life of husband and wife became quite distant and Charlotte actually moved into a separate bedroom from her husband and she occupied her time with Solo activities instead of being with him like reading and swimming but she also really longed for more. This wasn't a very happy life for her for someone who had been so fascinated by politics and the work of governance. When she was at her her father's side she really wanted to have some actual work to do instead of just making public appearances to look like a dutiful wife so seven years into her marriage Charlotte's husband. Maximilian was offered an opportunity by Napoleon. The third and that was to be emperor of Mexico. It's a big part of that Previous episode that we talked about at the top of the show. That's going to be Saturday. Classic soon as idea had actually been floated him several years earlier in eighteen. Sixty one and Polian. The third hatched his plan to get a foothold in North America. This was not Napoleon's idea alone. A European ruler in Mexico had been discussed by the upper class there as soon as Mexico had gained independence from Spain in eighteen twenty one. Those people had prospered under Spanish rule. They wanted to have something like that again. Yeah for people that were kind of in the elite class like to suddenly not have royal governance. Meant that they also didn't have royal favour and it was very upsetting At the end of eighteen sixty one. Napoleon third didn't invade Mexico claiming that the country had defaulted on its debts again. This is a much more complicated thing which is discussed a bit more than that that classic. That's coming up. The timing of the end of eighteen sixty one was no accident the US which had an alliance with Mexico was too tied up with its own civil war to offer any aid to their neighbors to the south particularly in terms of military force so throughout the fall of that year the French emperor had been setting his plan in motion and shoring up support from the conservative aristocracy of Mexico. A heavy investment in the effort enabled French troops to seize control of the country by force. It wasn't quite that quick. But that's basically how it played out so this would appear to be.

It feels weird to talk about anything else. But none of those have been quite the ongoing ever present situation of living. In self-isolation in a pandemic. Yeah, yeah, it's a strange thing I mean part of it is that I think our head spaces are just different than normal, so even our perception of like the whole process of selecting topics shifts a little bit. yeah, I I am constantly having this this inner monologue of Lake. is this how I would behave normally says because This is a stressful and we're. Is this how I would behave normally is this? Is this reaction something that like I I've lost all sense of what? What normal is in terms of both my behavior in my judgment. I was squirreling around you and I have talked about how a lot of our episodes are kind of informed by the fact that we're living in these times, and in some ways they relate to the the world of contagious disease, and the trajectory of of medical knowledge throughout history, but then this week. I was Kinda like I really to talk about something. That's not that and then I was like I. Know I'll do a Mad Royal People love those which then led me to? You will sometimes see her called Charlotte of Belgium and other times. Carlotta of Bacau. she actually very consciously sort of made a name change in there. And part of the reason that the story of Charlotte and Maximilian of Mexico is sometimes a little lost in historical discussion is that it was playing out at the same time as the US civil war and that event, the US of a were also played a part in the events that led to Charlotte of Belgium becoming Carlotta of Mexico. the two of them are tied to basically all of the Houses of Europe, so they were very connected to a lot of important history as well. We have an episode on Maximillian in our archive that will be an upcoming classic but Carlotta doesn't get a lot of discussion in it particularly her. Mental State and some of the things she was going through separate from her husband. As things in their lives gorie stressful. As I said, she is sometimes called Charlotte Sometimes Carlotta depending on what biography read We are going to start by calling her charlotte, and we will switch over to Carlotta in the narrative at the point where she her style, herself started going by that name, and this I think and I hope for everyone's entertainment, and maybe a little bit of escape has a mix of everything. There's some political history..

They were able to practice writing down recipes for beer and nobody else could do it. So monks didn't originate in Belgium. They came to Belgium, because they were seeking persecution and Belgium has long been a safe haven for those seeking persecution because. There's a new king so like if you're fleeing your king, just go to Belgium, wait for five years. There's a new king. You're good rate, so monks came to Belgian seeking persecution to. And they brought with them all of these recipes that they developed for beer fleeing persecution. That's what I sat should seeking. That's very different, very different message no!

"Of nineteen ninety nine there was a strange incident in belgium products at being taken back from the market when it happened but obviously it was already a bit too late it again at a secondary school and a little town called born i'm just outside antwerp a group of students got sick have dominant distress headaches nausea trembling dizziness dozens of kids in the first wave all ended up in the hospital and the only commonality was that there had been eating together but each had eaten their own sandwiches so there was no possibility of food born problem that's been one memory he's a medical toxicologist at the university of leuven he was part of the group that investigated the outbreak among students the only thing that they had in common is that they had drunk cocacola from bottles from crates and allegedly the was a strange odor in the code and then the school teachers went into different classrooms asking is anybody feeling well and drunk cocacola which of course made sense at the time but that led a few more children to report sick to be taken to hospital the story went national the evening news was a montage of ambulances and worried parents the next day four more schools reported outbreaks i mean it was really a state of panic every single cocacola product in belgium was pulled from the shelves and destroyed thirty million cans and bottles the largest recall and cocacola history the company was in crisis the stock price plummeted i was transfixed by the belgian co crisis not because i had any special interest in cocacola or belgium but because the whole affair reminded me of another panic something i'd lived through years before that left me baffled and frustrated my name is malcolm global you're listening to revisionist history my podcast about things forgotten misunderstood the next to episodes are about a panic that swept the united states a quarter century ago an outbreak of insanity i was in the middle covered it as a young reporter for the washington post but it took the belgian co crisis a few years later for me to understand why it happened because you know what poisoned all those belgians nothing the best explanation cocacola could come up with was at some of the carbon dioxide at their local bottling plant had been contaminated with sulfur compounds enough to cause a slight odor but trace amounts orders of magnitude below what is necessary to cause illness no major doak sins detected nothing that would suggest troopers inning and so if you don't usually it made no sense that there was poisoning by single same agent after looking into it necessary and his colleagues concluded that the crisis was an example of what's known as a mass socio genyk illness what used to be called mass hysteria people had real symptoms they were nauseated vomiting and dizzy and the initial batch of coke served at the school inborn him was a bit off but the coke didn't poison them there was no actual connection between their sickness and the thing they thought made them sick memory says that he saw another socio genyk outbreak firsthand in soviet georgia in nine hundred ninety nine soviet troops had sprayed a group of protesters with chemical agents terrible incident the strange thing though was that the children of the protesters had the same symptoms as their parents even though they weren't the ones who sprayed in the medical editor there are countless cases like this a group of people linked by some shared anxiety come to believe they have been exposed to something malevolent and the scary thing is that when you're in the middle of socio genyk outbreak when you're vomiting and running fever after drinking your can of coke you have no idea none at the cause of your illness is all in your magic nation so she spelled her native town was sturman and then she spoke hebrew as she learned english and she learned french and she learned latin among yet of janati furnish furnish afraid she knew aramaic very she's spoke with as private page in high school conversation latin this glutton each other i'm not the house of oughta homage just outside of baltimore on her porch she's a professor of medicine at johns hopkins next to her is her sister tamar professor of medicine yell university and xd tamar their father paul retired professor of medicine at georgetown university oughta and tamar are talking about their mother margate also professor of medicine at georgetown university until she died of cancer in two thousand eleven and.
