Zero COVID-19 cases at Seattle-area's long term care facilities for first time since pandemic
"Has been a year since the country learned about the first Corona virus outbreak in the nation at a Kirkland nursing home. Covert 19 ravage the Life care center this week, King County health officials announced. This is the first week without a single case reported from a long term care facility in the county since the outbreak began. Almost Michelle Esteban reports on the hope and healing. Oh, this whole week has been emotional Nurse Kathy Lombard is back where it all started. First covert 19 outbreak in the country. The first known covert death in the U. S. They're going to come back. You have no hesitation about going back. And then it is her first time back to the life care center of Kirkland in the years just to be here. And to see the people I took care of. She found one of the patients right away to sing her smile made me happy for Kathy. It is essential to remember the first victims the ones taken by Covitz. What significance does this place have for you? A lot of love. Is a lot of love shown here for the residents. One year ago, she volunteered to work inside. What had quickly become known as the epicenter of Corona virus was one of the first ones to volunteer to come here. And I'm glad I did. And she worked for the life care center in Puyallup when she learned the Kirkland facility had been ravaged by the coronavirus patients, and even more staff were testing positive here. I called here. Hey, I want to help. I want to be there helping you. Within three hours of that call. She was inside the baker unit at the life Care center assigned to 18 patients, her family and friends worried for her safety. She never got sick, right? I never really worried about. It was just too busy to even really think about it because there was work that needed to be done. Lombard knew 10 of the residents who lost their lives. It's hard. You just know that you did the best you could for them, and she could have been on the inside and seeing how hard we were working. But a federal inspection home found critical issues inspector said. Those issues put residents in immediate jeopardy and imminent danger, resulting in at least 37 deaths from the coronavirus. They were the first victims of this awful virus that we now find ourselves living in Deputy Los Angeles is mother, Twyla Ah Lifecare resident. Died in early March.

Nearly 3 million U.S. women have dropped out the labor force
"Not long after Donald Trump arrived at the White House, he disbanded and office that focused on challenges affecting women. President Biden is now resurrecting it. Women's rights groups hope this will help them make progress on things like paid family leave and affordable child care. Here's NPR's Melissa Block. The wish list on Biden's agenda for women is long restoring an expanding reproductive rights, combating gender based violence, reducing maternal mortality, and he's pitched a slew of economic proposals. Major structural disruption requires major structural change. And I feel like thinking big right now is exactly what we need to do. So now is the time That's the co chair of the Biden administration's new gender Policy Council. Jennifer Klein. You know we're seeing because of the health pandemic because of the economic crisis, and, in fact, take care giving crisis that's been layered on top of it. These are core issues core issues, Klein points out that air hitting women hard and especially women of color. Just look at the most recent jobs numbers. In December, women accounted for all 140,000 of the country's net lost jobs. One factor behind that, with so many schools and day care centers closed because of the coronavirus. Many women have had to drop out of the labor force. That's been disastrous, says Joan Williams, director of the Center for Work Life Law at the University of California, Hastings. Mother's already We're at the breaking point in the United States. I mean, we already had a choc your system that was basically a Rube Goldberg machine and the coronavirus brought that machine crashing down. Williams says. What she wants the Biden administration to do is to recognize that Just as we don't expect workers to get to work without physical infrastructure like bridges and roads. We can't expect workers to get to work without a care infrastructure. What would that care Infrastructure look like for Williams? That would mean subsidized neighborhood based child care, paid family leave Universal, pre K and $15 an hour minimum wage, especially during the pandemic. Single moms have had to choose between putting food on the table and leaving young Children home alone. Now. Part of the reason is because the minimum wages so low that there is no way on God's green Earth that those moms can pay for childcare. The paid caregivers are also reeling from the crunch. President Biden highlighted this when he announced his covert 19 relief plan last month. Let's make sure caregivers mostly women, women of color immigrants. Have the same pay indignity that they deserve. Advocates like I Jen poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, are heartened by what they're hearing from Biden. Her group represents workers, including nannies, home care workers and housekeepers, actually focusing on how we're going to make Thies jobs, good jobs for the 21st century. That you can take pride in and earn a living wage with benefits. That is a really big breakthrough. Conservatives, though, are leery of an agenda that carries a hefty price tag and they warn, will lead to crushing government regulations. Charmaine Yost is vice president of the Institute for Family Community and Opportunity at the Heritage Foundation. My biggest concern is that all of the proposals that I'm hearing coming from their side of things inevitably seem to come back to big government intervention in government programs. As for raising the minimum wage in the midst of a pandemic, when many businesses are suffering so badly if there were a time that you could create, that would be the perfect time to not Raise the minimum wage. This would be it with such a slim Democratic majority in Congress. Biden's agenda could have a tough time gaining traction. But Fatima Goss Graves, who heads the National Women's Law Center, is undaunted. Her group has issued an ambitious list of 100 demands for Biden's 1st 100 days. Basically, what we're asking this administration and Congress to do is effectively walk into gum. We need them to both undo things that have been harmful and have been Holding this country back and launch us forward in a way that we're stronger for it, Graves adds. This president doesn't have the luxury of coasting in Melissa Block NPR news
Johnson and Johnson says single-shot COVID-19 vaccine is 85 percent effective
"What's going on. When it comes to Cove in 19, and more specifically, Pursuit for more vaccines because we've got some big news from J and J Today. In fact, it's our top story on the Bloomberg In the past hour, Johnson and Johnson's one shot vaccine generating strong protection Against covered 19. They did him a large late stage trials, raising hopes that it can rapidly reshape US stumbling immunization campaign. We know the role. It has been really tough, but you've been pointing to the numbers preventing 66% Moderate to severe cases of covert 19, according to the company. Particularly effective stopping severe disease is preventing 85% of severe infections and 100% of hospitalizations and deaths. That's the number you've been focusing on. And it's a big one. All right, let's bring in our guest post op pulls his vice chairman of the executive committee, a change a also chief scientific officer at J and J and he joins us on the phone or actions should say Zoom. From New Brunswick, New Jersey. We also do want to welcome our Bloomberg TV audience. Who is joining who are joining us at this time? Um, Paul, it is so nice to have you here with us. First of all, Thank you so much and welcome. Talk to us about the findings. There's some difference statistics in terms of the efficacy. What is it that we need to zero and in on and what's really the most significant your view? So we did a very large study of 45,000 people in the US South America in Latin America in a totally different environment, where now huge transmission but also many variants or presence, and what we saw is that in the high in the severe disease We got a very high protection 85% against severe disease as well as 100% for death and hospitalization, and that across the entire study, including the South African study, and why is that important? That's 6000 people in South Africa, and we found that 90% of this train spread inside African strains, and we got even a better we got from 89% perfection in South Africa against the severe disease that 100% against hospitalization and other begins percent against that, so that shows that the vaccine is applications in in severe disease. Smell us against significant new strains. Given the results of this study, do you expect new and even more powerful variants to emerge in the future? Yeah, we have to stay very vigilant. There's so much fire a virus replication in the world. And now new vaccines being used and the virus is following the Darwin principles. The fittest survive, and they will take over as in in that race, And so you will see probably more variants. But strong immunity, antibody immunity and so immunity probably can overcome that. But we have to stay very vigilant and we have been able to do that with a single does, and I think that is going to be very effective in faster allowed as we are making a billion dollars in the course of the year. Well, let's talk about that. Because when you talked with our David Westin last fall, Paul, that's exactly what you talked about A billion doses you anticipated for 2021. So that's a real number. You expect it And can you give us an idea? That billion dose roll out. What does it look like over the next few months? So at the moment we are, we are setting up many of manufacturing plants in late stage. We are getting approval from different regulators in the world on that, so it's in full upscaling. And as we will deliver a billion over the year, it will be region by region, country by country. We work with the government to discuss on how much will be available when it will come in equivocator, but we are confident that we will be able to make Provide a billion in the course of the year. But what does that mean that? I mean, obviously, you've got get the emergency approval. So give me an idea of what the timeline is. I think we're all kind of Fixated on getting the vaccine so that our life can get back to normal. So what does the emergency approval process look like? And then when you actually anticipate getting vaccines into arms, and then at what rate Them so we will submit a filing next week. So we know that the data now for three days, we We worked on it that we finalized. That's what we published today. Next week will submit And then the FDA and Emma will have to do their work. The European fella to use a U. S agency will start their work and most likely towards the end of February will have an advisory panel bending of course decision off the FDA and then we'll see getting approval. Emergency use approve. Full and then in March will be able to start living vaccine. So you think a realistic timeline for us to actually receive Johnson and Johnson single dose vaccine would be March? It will start in the month of March, but they're also with US government. We have made an agreement over this off for several for 400 million vaccines to start with, I will keep up to that agreement to be able to deliver that. I'm wondering how you see this shot being used in the context of this is you call Pandemic Recovery tool kit, you know, especially fitting in with the Amarna vaccines that we see from during a and Fizer As well. The rollout of those has has been really tough here in the United States. There's been a lot of speed bumps, but you don't have to keep this one at a temperature for very, very cold temperature for a significant period of time. I mean, they're a lot of differences here. How do you see the rollout working in the context of these other vaccines? Well, it's it your point of the right thing. It's a single dose. So it one shot. You get this protection starting day 14 and and if you know, mature, said 28 even lot longer, so that goes fast. And then it It has to do it Celsius, which is normal refrigeration temperature for stability for three months so we can distribute in the country at normal refrigeration, which allows to get fractionated almost in every health care center pharmacy in a very simple way s O and that that will help and the single shot combined with that. And a high efficacy poor for severe disease. That hospitalization can have a very important effect. In addition, very short, very clean safety profile we have. We have not observed serious adverse events. No, an electric shock so further to be evaluated by the regulators. But that will also be an attractive feature with the very favorable safety profile. So that means that people who perhaps have not been in who had been advised against getting Marnie vaccine, This could be an option for them. Be an option, but it will be determined by the authorities who will get access first as this is emergency use application. It's ah, it will be distributed by the government. Hey,

How To Start a Terrarium - Little Set up, Lots of Fun
"Easy to set up Little little cares a matter of fact the less carrier give it away the better off because when you get it planted you should water it sparingly. Just things are moist then. You can cap the jug or can or canister or vase that you've put it in and or you can leave it open either way if you leave it open. There'll be some evaporation. You may have to water just a hint but this this is going to be an an enclosed environment for all practical purposes where everything gets recycled and it's just a real joy to watch it grow The one thing i would recommend s we quit doing was to turn the jug every week or you can have so that the light was hitting the plants them all the way around and i. I don't know how long that was in her bedroom. But long enough to climb a wall out onto the ceiling So you can have a great amount of fun or you can be more cautious and keep it small in the first place Any vessel clear and clear the better. It is to see what's happening inside but any vessel like that that I know if i start what it'll be in a super sized peanut butter jar that i have cleaned out. Its plastic but i can still see through it very easily so i can tell what's on inside and I don't not sure. I'll get around to it because i have a lot of indoor plants in the wintertime but a terrarium can be a lotta fun for children and adults and then even people in care centres. That don't have much space. But if they've got a window they can do terrarium and watch it grow so it's a lot of fun.

"Result of that report. I should say you know the the nursing. Home is currently appealing these findings but the nursing home was found to have made errors which placed residents. And what's called immediate jeopardy and the nursing home was fine around six hundred thousand dollars for those arison. Shortly after that report of course when family members start talking about potential wrongful death litigation against the nursing home and this is really important because right now the industry is basically fighting to make sure that lawsuit like the one that's currently pending against life care. Don't happen so we've seen in a lot of states industry groups lobbying to get to pass immunity legislation meaning. That families can never sue for anything. Related to corona virus and industry is also pushing the federal government to do the same. So i think that question of accountability is going to be a big one in the kind of months ahead and critics will say it's easy to blame a single facility. It's possible to have a law suit against the nursing home much more complicated. If you're trying to bring in a range of government actors who have underregulated nursing homes for a really long time. Just tell us the top takeaway. I guess from looking into this and and seeing the handling of all this what would you say is the top takeaway from all this you most is just how little nursing homes are regulated in some areas. And how little we know about what goes on in nursing homes. Even though at any given time around one point four million americans must have been elderly or people with disabilities or living in a nursing. Home so what i found for. Instance is that the nursing. Home industry is largely made up of private company. Seventy percent of nursing homes are four profit. Many of them are backed by private equity groups and those companies billions of dollars every year in public money still. They don't even need to publish financial statements that are available to resident their family members. They don't need to really reveal much about who they're trading with. And who's providing services. And what i'm finding is that it's just a huge amount of under-regulation that has really contributed to some of the issues like understaffing that affected estrin.

"care centre" Discussed on The Daily Dive
"Listen to podcasts. Let's suppose finally for this week. We'll take a look back at the early days of the pandemic and the first nursing home outbreak at the life. Care center of kirkland in washington forty six people died there but did those debts have to happen. The way that cove in nineteen tore through that facility is a cautionary tale for the way we operate nursing homes in the us. There were failures at many steps. All while residents and workers are some of their friends. Get sick and die for more and how it all played out. We'll speak katie. Engelhardt contributor to california sunday magazine their stories focusing on two women. Helen and twyla in room ten of the life. Care center in kirkland washington and we've heard a lot about nursing home deaths during kobe nursing home residents account for t- fraction of one percent of the population until they make up more than a quarter total cova deaths so when one of the daughters twyla mourns daughter. Debbie announced that she was suing the nursing home. Look at the issue of blame. To what extent was life care center responsible for these deaths and to what extent was the. That's just inevitable when the virus got inside the building because we know it targets older populations. And what i found was a more confusing mix of things. Federal investigators have found that the life care center the nursing home made pretty considerable errors in its handling of the pandemic. But what i found kind of around those failures were failures by local hospitals county state and federal officials. I can give you one example early on independent mic. Residents are dying at the life care center and my cares doctor goes out sick. He starts experiencing symptoms. He can no longer come in. Well now we're in the middle of a pandemic at a nursing home and there are no doctors at the nursing home does not have a backup physician available. We cannot find one so days pass in which residents are dying and no doctor is on staff to treat them. This is the failure of the nursing home. The nursing home has been fined for a number of violations over six hundred thousand dollars. But then i started to kind of tease apart. We'll who knew that there wasn't a doctor. The facility what i found was that county officials are kind of asked around local taking anyone else skill in. La scare. no one step forward. The county itself didn't send doctors on site for several days. Also officials at the department of health and washington and the federal government at the centers for medicare services. They all knew that there was no doctor. Life care and no one was able to come up with the doctor so we see these failures different levels but even beyond that just playing with the same example if the missing doctor basically if there aren't requirements that nursing homes have backup physicians on staff or kind of secondary person who's fair to look at residents doctor can be basically working solo in nursing home without much oversight at all then it you have low levels of staffers because they started getting sick too and a lot of them were calling out. They were working on a skeleton crew. And there's moments that you know you writing the story where they're just at their wits end they don't know what to do. They're trying to answer calls from family members but at the same time they're like i gotta go. I gotta make a nine one one. Call to get a resident out of here. It was like a fire the whole time we if we consider the context this is it a moment in time where we're really not taking covid seriously and you know it seems to be sort of a minor threat to the united states inside this nursing home. We have residents. Who aren't being fed regularly not being bathed regularly who are being left unattended for long stretches of time i spoke with the doctor who has experience treating ebola patients in west africa and he said that when he got to the nursing home several weeks later is of a relief effort he realized it was a humanitarian mission. Not unlike the one. He's participated in abroad. You're right the low level staff were absolutely strapped. They were going out sick. The ones that were there were doing the best that they could. Every single staff member. Who i spoke to either on or off the record cried a lot while we were on the phone together. So i think you know. It's clear that the staff really suffered. And i think you know. The lack of preparedness was clear sort of at every level. I did a very haunting interview. With dr steven morris at the harborview medical center. He's part of what's called disaster medical control for king county so we kind of move patients around when there's an emergency and he said to me you know we weren't really looking at nursing homes. He said he was working on plans to deal with other vulnerable populations like homeless populations. And it didn't really strike him that. This is something that was going to affect nursing homes just proportionately even though the data from china was already suggesting that it would and i think we see every level you know i looked at a washington state kind of a pandemic preparedness exercise. That was done a few years ago. Big port was written. I found that nursing homes were rarely mentioned in this big ninety page report and we were mentioned. It was kind of an offhand reference. As part of a beer list of different kinds of healthcare facilities by contrast that state plan had several sections devoted to very precise for state veterenarians. But i think that gives you a good sense for how much nursing homes are kind of on the minds of public officials. Tell me a little bit about testing because testing is an issue around the country. Obviously but in the beginning there at the nursing home they requested a bunch of tests. They gave him like half or less than half of what they needed to test. Even just the residents were another story because there are some things that were easy for me to understand like at the beginning there. Being just general shore of cast. That's much bigger story and some of it. You need to the united states but other aspects of the testing story at life care are harder for me to understand. I suppose to several staff members who worked in the nursing home for months. We're talking five. Six seven days a week. They were never tested. They never once got tested for kobe. During that time and the nursing home would have known by then that staff members can be a symptomatic and still be spreading the virus. So that's a really big problem. And you know i think now. Actually the testing issue gets back at this larger point of accountability. Do you know what the beginning there was. A shortage of test and the government just didn't have them but now who should really be responsible for getting the test and the nursing home industry will say these has a really expensive and we need government to provide them for us and the state should be testing residents for free but a lot of kinda industry. Critics will say no a lot of these nursing home. They're making a lot of money and they should be buying their own tests. So even now. I think there's a lot of kinda punting responsibility for what to do and instill in about half of states nursing. Homes aren't able tasked with the regularity. That's recommended that the cdc this is such a detailed and comprehensive story and it's tough to get to every angle in this one year. Be here but there was an inspection done about how you know. Everything went through there. This was done by the centers for medicare and medicaid services went to evaluate the handling of the outbreak. What was the.

"That also could have an effect on the children without knowing for certain to me. It doesn't make sense to say well since we don't know for sure let's just lock everything down. Put them the mass everybody apart constantly. You can't touch you can't do anything. We here's what we do know. Kids in sweden in their schools in the lower schools have been open for the entirety of the pandemic. They haven't been wearing masks. They're allowed to touch each other and there have been no evidence that there are like mass outbreaks have nine hundred thousand children in their lower school. Seventy thousand teachers you would think there would be scores of outbreaks undeniable. You can't keep it secret. I'm in their schools. Have children were really at great risk of doing something like this. And you're right. The cost of children are pretty immense and mandate of an epidemiologist scenes by and large. The song vouch -i who by the way seems like a good man and a wise person and reasonable but nevertheless his mandate and the incentives for politicians for superintendents is to go for avoiding fears the worst thing their incentives are not aligned toward acknowledging and protecting a much more vague but equally if not more important effect on children. Imagine going through your day for six hours a day never being allowed to put your arm around a friend and the jungle gym is closed. Because they're afraid if you touch it even though the evidence of the virus surviving on surfaces outdoors is highly questionable and spoken to multiple microbiologists about this. They want a school bus to be half empty where you have one child on each bench and every other row. So there is this kind of overarching theme of isolation. There's all sorts of research about touch and how physical touch is critical for how human beings socialize with each other and you can imagine even more important for children. So i mean the list goes on and on about what the costs are very real and i think the largest cost which i point out in the article is what's going to become this sort of blended learning model where children are where the school needs to be at half capacity. Basically in order to comply with these distancing guidelines so there can only have a certain portion of the students there on any given day and the rest of the time they're going to be home and this disproportionately make no mistake is going to harm working class families where both parents are working because there's no way they can do their jobs and have the kids home every other day or every other week. It's going to be interesting to see what further guidelines we get and then how school districts across the country are going to do this. I suspect it's going to be just like you. Mentioned the article in other countries of this mishmash of different guidelines and settings across the country. So we'll have to see how that turns out in the fall.

Trump and Biden vibe for who is tougher on China. I'm David, brancaccio good morning a key economic and trade issue was a major topic president trump's news conference. Yesterday trump worked to contrast his approach to China with that of former Vice President Joe Biden his opponent in fifty six days. Marketplace's Nancy Marshall Genzer is here. Now trump is talking about cracking down on. US COMPANIES He is the president is threatening to punish US companies that create jobs in China and other countries he says he'll impose tariffs on companies that quote desert America trump also says his administration will create made in America tax credits and kind of president do these things Not, all of these things tariffs are imposed by one country on another country, not on specific companies. So it's not clear what trump means about that as far as the tax credits go the administration could do that. But again, we don't have any details on how would work or what companies would have to do to qualify. And the two campaigns got into it over this yesterday. They did each is accusing the other of being soft on China yesterday trump said China will quote own this country if Biden Wins Biden. Says Trump's phase one trade agreement was a bad deal. And what is the situation beyond the rhetoric? Biden used to be more in favor of free trade. Now, he says he'd be tough on China and unlike trump would work with other countries to create alliances to counter Beijing as far as as one goes. It is true that China is behind where it should be to meet its commitments to buy US products like soybeans, but they're still time for a to speed up those purchases and get back on track.

"And to get back to the Lynn Valley care homes specifically I know earlier. You mentioned that that weekend leading up to the announcement. It was mayhem in the facility Family said it was mayhem. A lot of the care. Workers were unable to come to work because they had symptoms or worried worried that they had symptoms. Do we know why transmission happened so quickly in this facility? Is it related at all to health standards inside the home? What are people telling you what I've heard from family anyway is that they were confused. A little bit about you know at the beginning about just even know should they be wearing mosques. What kind of Moss? What kind of equipment that kind of thing? They've got a very strict setup. Now trae outside of each door of the person who has the virus and you suit up at the door and you go in and you do whatever you need to do and then you Each room has a big garbage. Can everything comes off and it goes into garbage can and then they now have to move onto the next person Vancouver coastal health. Which is the health authority that and again? I guess you sort of need to understand with the Lynn Valley Care Center. You have a mixture of private beds but you also have a voss majority are government subsidized beds so the health authority has sort of been in contact with the families and trying to figure this all out Deanna Harlow sort of described to me what she sees as an issue early. What we've noticed is there was no general if he will somebody who's sort of directing the care there was no like. I said there was no preparation. You know somebody from the Union used to represent. These workers has said Along those lines that I mean I guess that's what you end up having with. All this kind of fragmentation is that everybody repulsed two different employers and so there's sort of a communication gap just in terms of the basics of the way. This is all plays out. That's all left Vancouver coastal health and I mean. They have been in contact with the families. They've been meeting with the families asking their advice asking for their input and they say they've come up with With with plans and they're actually looking at the possibility of increased pay for those who work in this building with all the infected residents in addition to looking at the possibility of increased pay. You know how else has vancouver coastal health and the care home responded to some of these criticisms and what did the families think of this response? Well I I spoke. Briefly had a very brief conversation with One of the owners of the care home who expressed their sympathy for what was going on and said you know. They felt deeply for the patients and kind of referred everything over to the administration. When you call the administration they refer everything over to Vancouver Coastal Health Vancouver coastal health says. They are doing everything within their power to address the concerns of the families that they understand. What a difficult situation. This is that they've come up with with strategy. They held a one hour information session over a week ago that was attended by about fifty family members and fifty staff members to answer questions about all these concerns and to assure them that they are you know putting plans in place. Stuffing remains an issue. But they're trying to work over it. One of the family members Pointed out to me that even if things are at like let's say eighty percent of normal capacity. That's still difficult. Because it's a lockdown situation and so you have basic things like everybody in this facility whereas adult diapers. You need those changed. You need heightened. Scrutiny around cleaning and so Deanna Harlow the way she sort of explained it is that they were feeling more positive about it but they wanna make sure that snow over the long term. What they're seeing sticks. I think what we would like to see. If it's possible that some sort of emergency measures we need a team of people who can come in and that situation and just take control from the start and they know what they're coming into. They know that they have to protect themselves. And I mean she also felt that there needed to be some accountability with regards to all. This certainly Somebody to to look at what happened here And to to see how not just Lynn Valley Kesse other care centers Find themselves in similar positions can can can come out of this. The facility was left without Steph. When we talk about essential services this this definitely isn't essential service and somehow that service has to be maintained right certainly strikes me that there are a lot of lessons that could likely be learnt here proctoring.

"When so. I know the first death took place on March eight an eighty three year old man and our heartfelt condolences to his family and loved ones and also of course to the staff who provided him care and to his home at the Lynn Valley Care Center. He was actually the first Canadian dive. Cova one thousand nine hundred. Would we know about the people who have died so far so as you say the first death actually happened on that Sunday? This was an eighty three year. Old Man Again the Globe and Mail spoke to his daughter. You know like a lot of people who live in the north shore were or spent their life on the north shore. They love the area. I'm you saw then over the days just Dr Bonnie Henry Coming out daily. We've had three additional deaths. One resident of the Lynn Valley Care Center. One or two or three People more residence We heard From the daughter of one eighty nine year old woman who is very private so she didn't want a mom's life to be remembered just as Cova. Nineteen if you know what I mean if I really wanted to make something of value of my mother's passing and God should be so mad at me for making her the center of anything. It would be that. We have an obligation as individuals to follow the directions that have been given to us by the Public Health by Dr Bonnie Henry every day their whole families in isolation including her father who's now lost his wife and they find themselves in a family as a family now in a situation where they can't hug when people normally die you come together as a family and you flop stories and we can't do that and one of the hardest parts it's breaking is my father. You know you can't go down. How Him until? I know that I'm you know clear. And then even that. I don't know if I'm supposed to hug him or you know elbow bumper something But you know he's really lonely. That's awful to hear decent. I'm curious do we know anything about how this virus got into the home in the first place? Experts been able to trace its origin. Yeah I I. I believe. They've now traced it to one of the employees. This is the giant concern within the long term care industry. Is that because people might work in different facilities or bring it in and out of the facilities. But I'm pretty sure that's what they've confirmed has happened here. The Vancouver Coastal Health has been on site since we first became aware that the community case that we had was a healthcare worker. Who WORKED AT THAT CENTER? I WanNa ask you a little bit more about that. Can you talk about these? Healthcare workers soon have now tested positive. What do we know about who they are? And what kind of conditions they've been working under. Yeah so this is sort of a a whole thing within this and you kind of need to understand the way that the business of long-term care. Nbc worked so you have a mixture of for profit facilities and facilities run by not for profit societies in addition to the vast majority which are run by health authorities. Want a lot of people pointed to this legislation that was brought in by the former liberal government in two thousand and two that allowed long-term care homes to begin contracting out services. What has effectively happened over time. is that And that's what's happened here is that you have the raids Contract it out in the kitchen and dietary workers contracted out how that works practically. Is You hear from Kerry aides that the employers they now look for who are contract to provide these services. Pay Them less And so you have a workforce and again we're talking about care. Aides who are largely like they have to hold down a number of different jobs. A number of those different jobs might be indifferent care facilities. They're paid less. They get less benefits. This has been described. As I largely racialist workforce there's a a lot of people from the Philippines who are the backbone of of this industry in the lower mainland And you know they're trying to juggle a whole bunch of jobs and trying to make a living like to hold a life together basically so. This is very precarious work. And you mentioned that. Some aides have to work at multiple homes or try to cobble together multiple jobs to make ends meet. I understand that. There's an outbreak at another home in right now. Holly Burn House retirement. And that's now linked to the Lynn Valley care home. Yeah exactly And as a result Dr Bonnie Henry has has brought in measures to up the screening for carries and to make sure that you know. They're only working at one facility but again just eat you. Just think about the impact that has on their lives.

"I want to try to understand today. What happened at Lynn Valley Care Center so Dr Bonnie Henry declared there was an outbreak there on March seventh. I remember this press conference. We now have two of the residents who've tested positive. This is one of the scenarios that we have been course most concerned about. We know that the risk for elderly people having this disease is very concerning and that they are more likely to have more severe disease and take me back to that weekend. What do we know about what was going on? Inside the home leading up to that announcement you know. Some of the Global Mail Had done a piece where they were able to talk to a number of the care aides in that home And it what they said. Basically there were rumors going around for the week prior And certainly in the days prior that somebody had tested positive There had been somebody who who had who had been off sick and so. That was finally confirmed by Bonnie Henry the provincial health officer Dr Bonnie Henry on March seventh as you say so that visitors are restricted. There is infection control precautions being taken by all of the staff for every interaction in the facility and all of the residence and we will be curtailing the numbers of people who move in and out. That was a Saturday. And so what you had happened on. The Sunday was that the families descended basically on this facility and you know it was described to me as an absolutely dire situation In that they're only a couple of care. Aides that were there A nurse came in you. Know so you have three people Caring for a number of residents who would normally require about Twice that many people so you can imagine these people all have some very complex needs. Many people who are non verbal others who can't even stand up and walk you know they're all wearing You know diapers or depends that need changing So several residents were they were bedridden with a wet diaper and calling out incessantly for help. You know they were told that. Of course some carried people have been tested positive or an isolation and unable to come in other people. Replacements was scared to come in. The management was pitching in the family. Say They ended up having to pitch in to to give food. I believe he would be bedridden. If if we weren't there and making sure that he was eating we've spoon feeding him. Basically food and water and juice. I mean you have this phenomenally stressful situation anyway because everybody is wondering and has heard at this point about how fast moving this virus is about its ability to prey on the elderly and particularly how at risk people exactly like this would be one woman. I spoke to who who actually is now worried that her father is going to die and so and again think of that in terms of the balance of wanting to speak out and talk about what's going on but also worried that in some way that might in any way affect his situation and so she said a group of of the daughters were talking at the end of this day and said one of them said you know it's too late he But we've got to let people know what happened and what's happening so the other care facilities at the very least can can learn that something can be done to make sure that this situation isn't replicated. And you talked about families descending on this facility Deanna Harlow was she one of these family members as well. Yeah and she said they came in. They found themselves doing everything. Basically everything to keep things going. I mean we've been practically living there for the last two weeks for you. Know Seven or eight hours a day and you know she said it was just mayhem in terms of of what they saw and what they were going through and just in terms of trying to make sure that the basic needs of people were met because again the staffing had become an issue. I want I want to emphasize. Just how fantastic these care? Workers Being Lebron coming back working double shifts. Somebody doesn't turn they'll stay just they're superstars. They're heroes.

Well you know on the day I went on a Sunday and just as we drove post we noticed an ambulance that that actually appeared to be bringing somebody back to the center. And what you really notice. Is the precautions. Obviously that the paramedics that everybody are taking tons of safety. So you saw this Older man on a stretcher. He was sitting up. He had a mosque and a gown and then the people around him are all wearing gowns. And they're almost wearing. What looks like welding mosques basically very kathleen for golden inside. They're very carefully wiping. Absolutely everything down. You know their signs that some some kids have left up saying we love you that kind of thing. I went round back which is actually where a lot of the Covert infections are there were rainbows and messages support and that kind of thing chalked Into the sidewalk just outside the center so I mean obviously knows something is going on and again just kind of striking to see that when we went by and then knowing just how serious the situation is inside there and how many lives have been lost already right you and I are talking Wednesday and eleven people have already lost their lives to the corona virus. It's it's unimaginable. Yeah you it is just staggering. That you think about this one facility and the residents who have the corona virus and. I think it's up to about forty one people who've tested positive who are residents there. And that's not to mention staff which is which is nearing two dozen. It's just amazing. When you think about the physical reality of this virus which has changed a lives and which on the weekend I went Vancouver was having all these debates about social distancing and you know clearly. It hadn't hit home for some people. Young people feel that their immune to this and if we look at our epidemiologic curve people are not immune so this is what we're talking to in terms of making sure that that we're not gathering on the beach to watch the sunset that we're not playing basketball that twenty minutes away from the Vancouver beaches where health officials were saying. Please don't go. You had this facility where it is life and death rain and I just found that staggering and I can't even imagine what a difficult time this is for the residents and for the people that work at this facility and also for the families of these residents and I know that you spoke at length with one of the family members Deanna Harlow. Her father lives their father has tested positive And so we are trying to see him through he. He hasn't been exhibiting a lot of symptoms. Just a more of a light cough but he is extremely extremely tired. And can you tell me a little bit about their family's situation? Yes so you know like a lot of the residents there. He's a long-term north shore residents so ICAN imagine how great it was for the family to find a place for him in this facility. That's been around in the community since the nineteen sixties. His name's Graham drew is ninety six. He has Alzheimer's you know. They changed from being one person to another person. Who is you know? Just just as deserving of your your love and attention and your adoration and they before this would arrange for companions to come in. He's very active. Still and do crossword puzzles and little activities telling stories still like to walk around but since this is all happen all the residents have been confined to their rooms and nobody can visit them without putting on Protective Ghia and face masks and that kind of thing we get a motoring around the hallways just to keep this muscle the muscle tone and his legs so now his his muscles are atrophying. He has trouble standing. He's very shaky prone to falls. He was always very active. So this has been very difficult for him and just to sort of give you a snapshot of of the people who live in about sixty percent have mild to severe dementia thirty one percent or so are totally dependent on for for for their daily living activities. Something I found out she also just staggering is is about sixty percent are receiving medication for depression. That's not unusual in a long term care facility but if you just stop and think about all those factors combined with this virus and the need to confine people to their room and to change their daily habits in a point in their lives were habit sometimes in routine is all you have. You can really get an idea of how staggering and difficult. It is for the families to cope with this. Just even to explain why you can't leave your room why you're right. Where a mosque just everything like? It's taking a huge emotional. Coal is such a lonely discombobulating and I would imagine very scary. Time for.

"care centre" Discussed on Erin Burnett OutFront
"A late addition of out front next twenty one people on a cruise ship off the coast of San Francisco Test Positive Corona virus. So what happens now to the more than three thousand? Four hundred people stuck on board plus a third Washingtonian Washington State Elderly Care Facility. Now has an infected patient a third facility so bad is the outbreak in the Seattle area and Mick. Mulvaney is out trump announcing a new and very loyal chief of staff. Let's go out front and good evening. I'm Erin Burnett tonight. A Late Edition of out front the Corona virus crisis. We're GONNA take an in-depth look what's going on and how. The trump administration is handling. Its response and Dr Sanjay. Gupta is going to be Joining us for the entire hour it tonight. You Know Sanjay. We've been dealing with twenty one new cases on a cruise ship off the coast of San Francisco the grand princess and almost all of the cases. Nineteen hundred twenty one crew members which raises serious questions. About how many people they interacted with all in though only forty six people out of the thirty four hundred people on board have been tested so the number of positives obviously could go up now. Remember on the last cruise ship with Chris. The diamond princess at one time. It was the second biggest center of Corona Virus China so that went from what one or two cases to eventually ballooning more than six hundred on that cruise ship and what is truly shocking about the developments on the grand. Princess is that the passengers crew and captain were not told by the government about the positive results on board. They found out from watching vice president. Mike Pence on live national television. Here's the captain of the Grand Princess. Boys President Mike Pence twins. You old people of test imposed all over nineteen. You may have on us by the media. Rain we apologize. We don't give the advice not so nice but he was federal so since the vice president announced it was corona virus onboard the ship to the entire nation before telling ship did he also announce the plan for testing quarantining. And you know those important things which took twenty eight days for the last cruise ship in this position. Now we're working literally hour by hour with the Department of Defense is true truly evolving right now. Hour by hour truly evolving brief. You when you know is the bottom line in other words. They don't seem to know yet. The only person who has made his view on what to do with the thirty four hundred people on board the grandparents S is president trump. And we're up to me. I would be inclined to say. Leave everybody on the ship for a period of time and you use the ship as your base. I like the numbers being where they are. I don't need to have the numbers double because of one ship. That was it our fault. Leave people on the ship because when they come on land they will count in his mind in the US count. You know on his tally which he doesn't want that count. Though has been growing throughout the day twelve hours ago. Two hundred thirty cases in twenty states now three hundred four and twenty eight. Lucy caffeinated is out front and San Francisco. Solic- What are you hearing tonight about the passengers on that cruise ship where you are in San Francisco? Aaron there is so much shock so much confusion. On board. The Grand Prince's the passengers were hoping today's announcement would mean the end of their ordeal and said it looks like the start of a new one. The big question now. What will be the fate of the thirty four hundred people on board that ship? The vice president says it's going to be taken to a noncommercial. Port unclear what that means unclear when that will happen or where this will be located. We know that the eleven hundred or so members of the crew will not be allowed to disembark. They'll have to stay in quarantine on that ship. Every single other person will get tested. The crew will all get tested as well and it seems the passengers may get taken to military bases but again looks at the administration is working on these plans as we speak. We simply don't know where they will be taken to. People will be quarantined as needed. That's what the vice president said a terrifying prospect for a lot of these passengers. This is a vulnerable population of people. A lot of them in their sixties seventies and eighties. We've been in touch with several folks on board that ship. They said that they've been confined to their rooms. Glued to the news. That's where they seem to be getting most of their information they've been given activity. Kids passenger sent us a photo of a button dazzling bag kit that she got. That's how she could pass her time while she's trying to figure out if she's going to be quarantined for fourteen days are not another passenger posting on facebook earlier and I quote put all of us at the trump properties since he doesn't believe there's any serious danger. A bit of levity perhaps amidst a lot of confusion Aaron all right. Thank you very much and I wanna go out front now. To Americans quarantined. On Grand Princess Kaley Higgins ought and her mother Leeann Higgins and both of you. Thank you You know smiling and look Kudos to you for being able to do that. This has been a really difficult day. I can only imagine I mean Kelly. How did you and your mom find out about the cases of corona virus on the ship. Yeah so person in the balcony next to US told us to watch news so we turn on the TV and watch the vice president. Tell us The captain didn't say anything so until thirty minutes later and it was. I was so shocked. I didn't I couldn't believe it. I mean Liam went. Went through your mind when you heard the news. I mean I don't WanNa put feelings on the captain. He seemed to me to be a little bit. Make it clear. They didn't tell him it wasn't holding anything back from you He seemed a little Per Perturbed by that What went through your mind when you found out I just I. I felt so bad for everyone on the ship including the South It came as the big shock. We we really didn't think that we would have been affected Even when we had I found out the news on Wednesday about the data From the previous ship we still were pretty optimistic and It was pretty much business as usual on the ship. 'em So it it's been a to use to so when you hear a noncommercial port and you hear them say we're working on it. Which of course they are but they they obviously have not come up with a formal plan. Have you gotten any update any any information at all from anybody about what's next and then the captain or anyone on the ship is told us so so? I don't know yeah we were kind of blindsided here. What are you worried about Kaley for me? I'm most worried about missing more school and I'm worried about everyone on board I. It's such a hard thing with all the older folks on board and all the crew members. It's it's so scary. It's just I think I'm healthy enough to be okay but just everyone else. It's terrible I mean Leeann. We can only hope they come up with a plan here. Where you you know. It's a fourteen day process obviously for the other ship It was not handled well and hopefully everyone has learned from that right but you know I talked to a passenger the other day and she's fine now but I mean it was a twenty eight day saga And as I say. I think nobody expects anything that would be just just. No one expects anything like that to happen happen to you all. But what is your biggest fear I think the biggest fear is that even if there is a dish additional quarantine that like when we go back into the regular population like to our jobs to Kaley squall What kind additional measures might be taken and without prolonged are getting back into our normal lives right? I mean sort of just as the stigma. Help people would treat. You is what you're saying. Yeah yeah all right. Well thank you both very much You know a good good good. Good luck to you and you know. We're we're rooting for you. Think you are right and I want to You Know Sanjay as as as you hear their story I mean this is. This is unprecedented situation. I mean there's just they have no idea. No one's telling them anything. I mean we would have thought we would have learned from what happened on the diamond princess. Quarantining people on a ship is a bad idea. I think everyone sort of realized that cruise ships and he says if he had it his way he would keep on because he doesn't want the count to go up. It's it's a terrible idea. I mean the problem is that even outside of a crow virus outbreak. These viruses spread on ships. You know the norovirus People forget about the norovirus. Because he's been talking about Corona virus so much twenty percent of the people on that diamond cruise ship that Diamond Princess cruise ship. They got infected and there were people who died you know so. It's it's very hard and keep in mind you have to have a crew and the crew is then walking around the ship. They're trying to take care of people there in many ways you know. They're putting themselves at risk knowingly. In order to service the passengers there are often times You know they're they're in similar quarters. They're they're close close by to each other so eating together all of that so it's like they kind of know they're going to get infected nineteen of the twenty one that has you know our. Yeah and when you know. We've you know anyone who's seen cruise ship shore if you go on. The diamond print the princess a website for crew. They right up front. Say it you're going to be sharing quarters with. I mean the crew. The passengers have the space on ship. The crew are in tight quarters. They are together. They're sharing a lot of things. It's impossible really to keep them safe. So I mean I I. I hope that they're listening. Hope that the there's lessons that have been taken from the diamond because the folks that are on this this cruise ship now. I really hope that they don't quarantine them on the cruise ship. We're dealing with unprecedented situations overall. No question but we do have a case in lesson from the diamond that we should apply here so so Only forty six of the thirty four hundred people on the ship tested. We don't know how they got to that number again. We do know that. Twenty one of the more positive. That's about half and nineteen of the twenty one were crew so they said they're gonNA test everybody. But how do you determine? I mean? Look if you're looking at fourteen warranty period quarantine period from exposure. That's a rolling period. That's right and so each time someone test positive during that was it restart. It resets the clock. Which has got to be? Just mind numbing for the people that are in that quarantine I I don't know I think the people that were tested probably where people that were suspicious for some reason either because of symptoms or whatnot The crew members that may have been on the previous ship. That was a gentleman who had been on the previous voyage who subsequently died as you know. That's what started all this Ultimately everyone's got to be tested We're talking a lot about testing this past week. The fact that we can't get thirty five hundred people tested on the cruise ship out there in an area where we know there are at particularly high risk. I think is is sort of speaks to the larger issue of testing for the country overall. I mean we. They need to be tested. They couldn't whether they can be tested on the boat or when they get on land. I don't know but I have to say I mean the idea again and I know there's a lot of smart people who I'm sure giving advice but the idea of quarantining them in a place that is essentially going to act as a petri dish is is is a real problem and potentially putting people like Kalian her mom at risk of being exposed to the virus. I mean because they don't they have to eat the food safety ultimately you have to eat the food all right so next breaking news three senior care centers in Washington state now reporting corona virus cases The the latest on the Seattle area outbreaks some headlines on that this hour trump and vice president pence or an extremely different pages when it comes to testing in fact One says the opposite of the other. Who's telling the truth? And the Friday night dump. The president has gotten rid of his chief of staff. And he's got a new one one of his most vocal defenders.
