"Next tonight to ball that news coming in concerning cruise ships around the world and take a look at this tonight? The crucial tracker showing just how many passenger ships are sailing around the world. Right now as we're on the air as the grand princess remains off the coast of California tonight with those twenty one confirmed cases now onboard state officials and the cruise line are trying to avoid a similar nightmare involving that first ship while it was under quarantine off the of Japan so many health authorities around the world calling it essentially a petri dish for the corona virus. So what did we learn? Here's Maggie Rulli tonight. It was supposed to be the perfect vacation a two week. Long cruise exploring the beauty of Southeast Asia for adventure seekers like John and Melanie herring. We decided to say six month venture for first retirement. Tra and Carlin Jerry Goldman. I purchased this as Christmas gift for my wife and for ten glorious days the Diamond Princess delivered for the hearings and the Goldmans the crew was idyllic our first trip to Southeast Asia. So we're excited about. Seeing Japan. We went to Hong Kong Taiwan so that was a thrill that is until an uninvited passenger made its way on board coup in Nineteen Aka the corona virus when you think about the physical environment of cruise ship. You're talking about a confined space packed with thousands of people if they carry any type of infectious organism or pathogen on their hands. elevators handrails doorknobs. You have really potentially the perfect storm quite literally for an infection to go haywire. Hd Five when the diamond princess and it's thirty seven hundred guests and crew doc in Hong Kong. That's where an older man in his eighties with a coughing fever leaves the ship. No one knew it at the time but days later he would be diagnosed with cove in nineteen time in Hong Kong and anything a virus of any kind. The diamond princess continues its journey. The ship only finding out about the virus on its way back to port in Yokohama. Speeding up to get back just one day early. Japanese government officials imposed rules. No one can leave. The entire ship is under a fourteen day. Quarantine guests are confined to their rooms with some describing it as a floating prison by appreciate you sharing your time in story with us. Face time with Jon and Melanie hearing about a week into the quarantine. Don't what looks like. Okay okay that at all I was kind of show you round measured it out just because I had nothing else to do it. Was that eight by fifteen feet and that includes the bathroom and everything. The hearings have no window in their room every few days they were allowed to go outside on the main deck for an hour but they're told to say several feet away from other passengers. Misses the first time we've been outside the sun and it's beautiful. The Japanese government has been questioned over its quarantine strategy namely the decision to keep people on the ship or the infection could spread Japanese doctor who visited the ship for just one day posted a video online calling the quarantine completely chaotic. I was so scared of getting copied nineteen because there was no way to tell where the viruses one Japanese government health official admitted in a TV interview. The quarantine wasn't perfect as expected. Some of the crew was infected and may have pass along the virus while working with no single professional infection control pass inside the ship overall more than seven hundred people from the diamond princess tested positive for Kuban nineteen six have died. It's not just do we keep them on or let them off. A risk benefit analysis needed to be calculated and it turned out that the wrong decision was made it was during that quarantine that John Herring get sick point spiking a fever then testing positive for Kuban nineteen. His fever is now one hundred three again. Just trying to keep him cool and comfortable. He's burning up. Just have your prayers for him. He's evacuated to a hospital in Japan leaving his wife. Melanie back on the ship by February. Fifteen after twenty six days on board the US State Department decides to fly the remaining American passengers including Melanie and Carl and Jerry Goldman back to the US for treatment and additional quarantine. The goldmans their vacation nightmare might soon be over but sadly it's not when we left the ship. We had no idea we were carrying the virus. Carl develops a fever on the plane. Ride back and hours later. Test Positive for the virus the California couple is sent halfway across the country to the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. They decide to put me in an ambulance with a full motorcade. I felt like it was either the president or the Queen of England because not all hospitals are created equal. This place is uniquely qualified for a crisis. It has a bio containment unit. Tv terrorists. They're hooked up to monitors everyone who came intimate this week. Our cameras visited the specialized facility which was last used during the twenty fourteen in Boola outbreak. And the next thing we do is we put on our isolation gown our tour guide Angie vessel the nurse manager. This is something that is for providing care to patients that are confirmed to have covert nineteen. We have a team of all volunteer staff. They want to provide the highest level of care in the safest possible way for pathogens that most other people run away from not lean into. I've been feeling better and better every day tonight. Carl Goldman is still in that hospital in Nebraska. No word yet on when he will be able to leave for John Melanie herring. The news is better. She's finally leaving quarantine in California. We're going home. I love you. John finally leaving that hospital in Japan can't wait to to put my arms around you and earlier this week at an airport in. Utah. That's exactly what he did. We just held on tight. We couldn't go for a while. Coming home has never felt so good art. Thanks to Maggie Rulli tonight. Who's been reporting on this for weeks? John Melanie airing. We should point out our home safely. Utah Tonight. They're feeling better their self corentin an inside that national corn team unit. They have just gotten a new patient tonight. Nebraska's first cove in nineteen patient corona virus. Antifa who you just saw giving us a tour of the unit that she oversees is treating that patient tonight and Angie is with US Andy. Thank you so much. Not only for what you're doing but for joining US tonight. And what can you tell us about this new patient? How's The patient doing Thank you for having me. You know I can tell you that we did admit an another individual patients who are facility and I think our team is taking every step to make sure we get a thorough evaluation and provide the highest level of care for that individual rickets announcing this case today said people should prepare as if they might be at home for an extended period of time You're on the front lines. You're you're treating the virus. You're you're seeing how powerful viruses how easily it can spread. What would you say to people at home tonight? Who are simply trying to prepare in case it comes into their community. Is there anything they can do to protect themselves? Yeah you know what I would relate to. People is that they should be preparing for themselves and their families and I think that The number one lesson that I want people to take home is that they are if they are l. even if it's a mile that they should be in contact with their local health department that they should take the proper precautions cover their cough wash their hands. And if you are ill stay home so that you don't spread illness other people who may be more vulnerable than you are which is so important You're not only helping yourself. You're helping everybody that you would come in contact with you. Talk about washing your hands. Which sounds so simple. Angie but that is the primary way that this is transmitted. If you wash your hands and I know a lot of people have been watching this night after night or doing that. People have talked about how chapter hands are now but it really makes a difference right. It does make a difference. I mean when you have respiratory pathogen. That's airborne droplets spread. We WanNa make sure that any hands. That are touching any potentially contaminated surfaces and then touching your face mucous membranes are clean and so the more that we can decrease the bio burden on ourselves less likely we are to contaminate other surfaces or people. But we're thinking about you too as well tonight Angie and all the first responders on the front lines of this the healthcare across this country. Now you've got a four year old son at home. You're treating corona virus patients going home. I'm sure there's a lot going through your mind about how safe it is and and any kind of harm that you might possibly be putting your family In how do you balance that between what you have to do with your job and caring for your family now you know? I think that that's exactly the reason why I continue to do this job. Because I WANNA make sure that we have healthcare workers that are trained to be able to provide the highest level of care in the safest way possible so that we can protect our friends. Our family our loved ones and ultimately our community to mitigate the spread of this Specifically this Covered nineteen pathogen or injury. We'll go home and hug your son tonight and thank you for your service is important time. Thank you NGO. I want to get to Dr Jen. Because you and I have talked about this night after night. The healthcare workers who are on the front lines in the hospitals and in these biocontainment units It's a huge risk. It is David and you know is really important to us to hear from a registered nurse so often in these crises you hear from just doctors but we have to remember inside hospitals. It's not just doctors. Nurses it's technicians transporter. They are literally doing the analogy of running into a fire when everyone else is running out so they deserve a lot of credit tonight. I WanNa get to our first viewer questions tonight. A lot of questions about cruise ships and planes so first of all. Should you take a cruise right now? That is probably the most common question David and I think it really depends on your risk tolerance risk versus going risk versus staying home benefit to going benefit to staying home you know. Cruise ships are very highly concentrated. Same thing with airplanes. We've heard about those tray tables Carrying lots of bacteria not necessarily that. Make US sick but again. I think you have to decide who you are. And if you have any risk factors where you're going how important it is to go and David is not an easy decision but I can tell you. I have a lot of travel coming up. Most of it for work and right now I having counseled cancelled. So you're sitting on the plane though and you have a passenger next to you and they cough or they sneeze Kennedy transmitted through the Air. It it absolutely can but we still have to remember. Common things occur commonly and right. Now it's much more of a risk to you that that person has a common cold or the flu then corona virus right now. All Right Jen. Thank you a lot more questions that come. We just hit the tip of the iceberg. There when we come back here tonight the new warning from the World Health Organization genuine. I've been talking about this too. That alarming number. They said this is not a drill and they estimated the death rate is three point. Four percent from corona virus. Is that accurate? And we'll more testing around the world and here in the US. Actually bring that number down. We'll have a reality check on that tonight. Also the alarming numbers coming in this evening from Italy. The streets of a famous city now empty and look at these images tonight. The major stadiums going silent teams playing to empty stands around the world. Twenty twenty continues live.

"Good evening and it's great to have you with us here a very busy Tuesday night and we begin tonight with that new warning from the CDC about the corona virus here in the US saying it is not a question of if but when and saying Americans should prepare tonight the CDC reports the number of those sick and stands at fifty seven the US all of them in quarantine and treatment. The warning comes in part after the virus spread quickly across several towns in Italy within two hundred cases reported at least ten people have died and an Italian tourist testing positive on the Spanish resort island. A large hotel with a thousand guests now on lockdown inside and look at this tonight in Iran. The deputy health minister testing positive for the virus. After appearing visibly ill during a news conference meant to call nerves about the outbreak. President trump tonight saying he thinks it's going to work out fine but lawmakers on the hill asking questions we begin with. Abc's Steve O's insomnia at the CDC in Atlanta US health authorities tonight say there's no doubt we'll see more of this American sick with the corona virus who need to be kept in isolation are special. Carl Goldman is one fifty seven Americans fighting the disease. We are asking the American public to work with us to prepare expectation that this could be bad clear warning yet. The all but promises that the corona virus will spread here and that Americans need to prepare. We expect we will see community spread in this country. It's not so much a question of if this will happen anymore but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness and we really want to prepare the American public for the possibility that their lives will be disrupted because of the pandemic at three. Am Factory in South Dakota where they make masks and respirators that. Help protect from the disease. They're working twenty four seven and still can't produce them fast enough. We're told by the experts and I see that. There is a very strong chance of an extremely serious outbreak of the krona virus. Here in the United States in a hearing in Washington today the government shared that it could need about three hundred million respirators to be used by healthcare workers but only has about thirty million on hand. That didn't go over. Well sorry security. Do we have enough respirators or not. What has authorities alarmed? Are the clusters of outbreaks happening outside of Asia that are not directly connected to Asia on the Canary Islands off the eastern coast of Africa? More than a thousand tourists are trapped in a hotel because an Italian guest came down with the virus in Italy. More than three hundred and twenty two confirmed cases with ten people dead and they haven't even found the source of the outbreak in Iran. At least fifteen people were killed by the virus and nearly one hundred are sick including this health minister who yesterday was on camera. Downplaying the danger as he's seen coughing and wiping his brow today he learned he too has the corona virus. The trump administration today was trying to bring calm to both the panic and the economic markets. Stocks are down today again. We have contained this. I won't say airtight at Pretty Close to airtight. The President says they're throwing everything at this very well under control in our country. We have very few people with the people are getting better. They're all getting better. They're hoping the virus dies out with warm weather. And let's get this tvos. Asami with US tonight outside the CDC and Steve. I know we learned late today. That some American college students studying abroad are now coming home from Italy tonight.

"California and I'm a working in Washington DC good morning in China the death toll from the corona virus has hit two thousand world leaders and public health officials are trying to contain it but new infections keep showing up Carl Goldman for example he was a passenger on the diamond princess that's the cruise ship where hundreds of people got the virus we have an exotic cruise to us out the user from my wife's birthday and Christmas present who knew we were gonna and the crews and beautiful mas here's how we ended up in Omaha Carlin his wife Terry were quarantined on that ship for twelve days and they felt fine the whole time but then they got on the flight back to the U. S. and Carl started feeling sick almost one back from Japan to the state about two hours into the flight I woke up with a high fever after napping a little bit and the doctors onboard confirm that and then when the flight landed he tested positive for the corona virus he's recovering now in a bio containment unit at the university of Nebraska Medical Center he's gonna have to spend fourteen days there and isolation right now we're giving me a lot of catering believe it or not but Mona been here two days so far but different doctors each day Preston have flat out there I've got a little cost still you can hear my voice is a bit raspy and I'm a little confused but that may be also because of the jet lag in when the travels and everything else on top of that so no it doesn't feel any different than enough recuperating from a regular coal Carl's wife Jerry hasn't been diagnosed with the virus so she's being monitored in a different part of the hospital but their case is a good example of some things we know in some things we don't know about how this virus is spreading so we have called doctor Anthony Fauci is director of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases good morning Sir good morning so Carl golden was fine all those days on the ship then he gets on a plane and he gets a fever what does that tell us about how this virus is spreading well the virus has the ability to bind to certain cells in your body particularly in your long so you can get anything from miles a symptomatic illness to a cough and fever to some people about about twenty percent of the people come to the attention of medical physicians and healthcare providers can get serious pneumonia is requiring intensive care it sounds like this individual is on the mild side of the illness because as he said it doesn't feel much more than just a common cold then as a matter of fact corona viruses in general prior to this well one of the causes of the common cold okay so what is that tell us I mean we hear it often looking at the cases we're looking at a rising death toll which is tragic we look much less of the people like Carl is a you know my voice is raspy I had a fever I had a cough there is a wide range of of symptoms with this virus do do do we know why some people seem to be doing okay and other people are getting hit really hard well other couple things about that for the first thing is that in any kind of viral infection or any pathogen infection there's always a wide range of responses in the sense almost like a bell shaped curve some people get no symptoms at all and we do have a symptomatic coronavirus infection with this particular episode and then there's the bulk of people get some sort of symptoms and then a small percentage of people do really really very poorly no that relates to the ability of the body to handle the virus and the one thing we know and it's not unique to this virus is that the elderly those with underlying conditions like chronic heart disease lung disease diabetes obesity they tend to get more complications much more than for example in otherwise healthy individual and that's the reason why if you look at the death rate which is around two percent for this disease at this time it is disproportionately higher among the elderly and particularly those who have underlying conditions then this is interesting question Carl in his wife Jerry presumably they work together the entire time they were quarantined right on it he gets to the virus she does not did she just get lucky to some people have some sort of immuno defense that others don't it's a combination that's a good question it's a combination of both there is no virus that has one hundred percent attack rate even the most infectious of all viruses like measles doesn't get a hundred percent of of of vulnerable people but respiratory viruses particularly things like influenza or the coronavirus the attack rate is very in percentage and it was if it was really it likely that his wife I don't think she necessarily had any underlying immune protection though that's possible there may be some cross reaction of immune protection with other microbes that she came into contact with but it most likely is as you suggest the luck of the draw okay interesting and then talk to fetch and wondered if you could clear something up because we've been hearing reports about so called super spreaders these are people who spread the virus to a very high number of other people and it sounds like a scary thing but I just wonder is this a real phenomenon there that there are people who give the virus to more people than most and why is that happening well it is certainly the phenomenon of the super spread it is real we store it with sars back in two thousand two in two thousand and three and their episodes already with this particular new corona virus and it's a combination of two things it's an individual who's either at a particular moment in time shedding a very large amount of virus which makes it much easier to an in fact a group of people who are around him but you also see it sometimes in the hospital setting when you have a number of health care providers taking care of someone and that person the shedding a lot of virus so the short answer to your question is there are super spreaders and it's a real phenomenon okay okay what would you say at this moment is the most important are the most pressing question about this virus that we don't have answers to yet well what we don't know for sure we know that there are people who are infected who are without symptoms or very minimal symptoms they hardly notice they're infected what we don't know is the extent to which people who have no symptoms are spreading it we do know that this can occur because we have anecdotal documented cases of people who do not have symptoms who actually have infected someone usually a family member but we don't know the extent to

"Of infection fever and cough. You don't have that just beyond the lookout for it. Then well Dr Robert Winters. Md from here in local Los Angeles infectious disease. Doctor we thank you so much for being part of the show and giving your your your take and your research and experience in this and we really appreciate it. Yeah my pleasure Carl. I hope you get off the ship. The nineteenth comes around and stuff. Okay Take Care Karl. I have a question for you. Carl the have they give you any indication if you fly back to Los Angeles. Are you going to be sequestered and quarantined here? In the states. We thought so at first but the US embassy has issued a number of leases. They keep us updated on a daily basis. Us Embassy from Japan based in Tokyo and they referred us that no we will not be quantity dreamed of any back when we get back to the states. And once we leave the ship we are free individuals. And I I saw on. I was very curious about this. I saw a thing that your wife did. 'cause you're with your wife that she was saying that people were threatening threatening you and your wife not to come back. Is that right? Yeah well you Tony. You know better than anybody that social media can be a really big rabbit hole. No we've been you know we've been very out front there with both our blogs on hometown station dot com sharing a day today diary of what been going through in making you know keeping our sense of humor about it and then my wife's been doing yes lives facebook's rained and yes but you know it it gets down a percentage as we have one hundred thousand people will be watching it and they'll be ten yoyos making comments that are beyond stupid. Right and yeah. It's it's unfortunate. There's a good and bad to social media and Unfortunately have to see those once in a while but There's after the show you guys can go to Carl's Radio Station website hometown station DOT COM. You can find out. There's a lot more You know his right here. Yeah you can just go and check it out. Look at his Pages of of more details of what they went through but Carl. I know one thing about mental health where you know people stressed out your immune system goes down. How do you keep your mental state up? I mean being in your affirming trapped. Eight to eight feet with your wife. That's true but you know it's it's but after a while you can get cabin. Fever unintended And really kind of kind of get stressed out and in your immune system goes. How do you keep your mental health up? How do you keep that positively going? Yeah let's the ultimate test of our thirty one year we we we o one of the lucky ones we. We purchased a mini sweet when I gave this cruise as a gift for Christmas and her birthday present and we traveled with two of our closest friends. Who are in the cabin next to us. Which is rare for us to be able to get joining Kevin's but like the luck of the dice. Just happened when we first book this cruise on the first day of our crews and again we had fifteen of the sixteen days on the crews were wonderful cruise Cruise time we had. Princess opened the door between are too many sweets out on the balcony. So I can go back and forth into their room and vice versa. And that's what kept their marriage intact. I think you're lucky. Mean God. Some people are trapped. No windows able to and right right. There are people. I was on One of our excursions in Vietnam and I met a wonderful couple from Atlanta. They were in their eighties and they have been given the cruise as a gift by their grandson. They were in an inside cabin. No windows about a half the size of our Rome. Many sweet and the grandson and a friend were in there so this four in all my we met another. Yeah we met another American family. He's in the military and they brought their kids. They're in an inside cabin. So whenever we start feeling a little sir crazy we just think of them and and that any any version of US feeling sorry for ourselves out and we've also kept a sense of humor if you read my blog I've been we've been posting that every two days on hometime station DOT com. And we you know. We tried to show the reality of this and the serious and the seriousness of this but also put a humorous twist to it as we do throughout our lives. Thing that the lemonade on for sure and my my biggest thing is you said they bring you the food. I'm like well. How do you know there hasn't been from the time they cooked it the time you brought it to you that something didn't get infected airport? Yeah I would be afraid to even when you do but you have to eat so well. In coral they cancel everyone on the crew. Where masks so anything? Airborne is hopefully stop by the masks right and with health. And we've got so many Japanese health officials on board they're inspecting everything and clearing everything. It was only a few. We've been doing laundry in our bathtub and only been a few days ago when they health officials are now allowing the princess staff to do laundry as well for passenger yeah. I saw the video where your clothes hanging out on your balcony so I thought that was pretty Cruz where they cancelled the The rest of the cruisers for China for the rest of year blamed them and they've now cancelled flights in and out of China. So I mean I. I'm still worried Carl. I know they told you they're going to let you be Freeman. But I I bet then they just take another flight recently and they put them to an army barracks I thought in California is that right. Yes but those yes but those people who had not been quarantined for the fourteen days. I Sweden totally isolated. So so my feeling is that one. We hit that fourteen day mark on February nineteenth. We'll be less likely to be carrying the virus thing anyone else. I'd be afraid on that trip back an airplane. I make sure very careful who gets Sunday right. Like who are you well? We we know I was GonNa say we know you have a lot more to do but We really appreciate you being on the show and when you get back let us know because I'd love to to meet with you and and Make sure you're okay until your Wifi for us. I will I. Will I appreciate that. You Guys Take Care Karl Take Care of yourself thank you bye. That's crazy stuff. Tony in Japan. They said that. There's now I think it's at forty F- forty cases in Japan. That's what scares me. I mean it's Like he said he thinks it's way higher than that they're saying and and it's not that it scares me because like. I said we've heard the bird flu and Ebola so many things that have came before but these this this one is growing. Things are the speed of this speed because we had Linda on and and I had listened to her show and it was like at eight hundred people in a weak leader which you came on our show it was like an eight thousand right and now here. We are two weeks later. Words Sixty five thousand that we know of which the doctor and everybody else seems to be. Feeling that it's actually quite higher than the numbers that are giving out at least out of China so it's the rate that spreads and additionally Mortality Rate. Yeah all those other people have the flu. But they're not dying at two and a half percent right if you get this two and a half percent of them die. I like like he said two hundred eighteen people now on the ship are infected in twenty four hours. They're gonNA come out and they're going to say to thirty five or whatever. It is so at some point. Your number's up very well. Of course you know two percent and that's a di- but to at least get infection you know I mean that that's the concern so all right. Well we'll keep up on this and if we have any more breaking news about this we'll try to get some more information Out To you guys. If you have any questions please always leave. Comments Really Appreciate Carl. Goldman go to hometown station DOT COM and in Dr Robert Winters Infectious Disease Doctor for having both of those guys on taking their time out of the absolute and We appreciate you guys tuning in until next time.

"I mean like you said there's so many you know so. Many people infected with just the flu influenza. I mean how. How do we even Stop Org? Even try to stop a new virus that we really don't know anything thing about. Is it very similar to the flu or is it completely are? We just don't know well early on. I think a lot of these illnesses look the same right. The virus rhinovirus corona virus influenza. All these start very In a very similar way fever cough sore throat but the the the concerning feature of the corona virus obviously is the severe respiratory impact and It has a considerably higher death rate as we talked about influenza much higher than the common cold the adenoviruses and the Rhino viruses. That people tend to get it every year as well so I think that they are very similar. You takes a doctor and probably some good laboratory testing to differentiate something between the state influenza which we have a rapid test. We can tell people in the emergency room within a half hour of meeting them whether they have influenza A. OR B. We have a nice test or something called Respiratory Sushil virus. Rsvp we can get that answer in thirty minutes or less and you know the test is coming along for the corona virus as well as just a we may not have the number of kits available but that's also being wrapped up as I understand. Well we before we let you go because I know you're busy man I want to see if Carl or doctor. Captain Ron has any more questions I want to ask for. The ninety nine percent of these cases are clearly in China but we do have fifteen here in the United States. Eight of California Should people be concerned? What should they do? We have to wash your hands more often. What what what. What steps should people take right? Well look I if you listen to the CDC which I agree with the cases that we have in the United States really have. They are all related to either directly or indirectly related to someone that had traveled to China. So if you don't have that type of relationship With somebody then. I think you're at relatively low risk but I think that the reality is no one knows how this is going to play out and I think we have About six hundred people in quarantine ourselves in our country here. Obviously we're taking this very seriously If you don't have Exposure to some of this had international travel. I think your risk is much lower than somebody that obviously does have that Exposure but I would tell you a month from now We could have no one hundred times the number of cases that we have right now because they're sort of a critical mass unless you have a set number of people that have not been identified and they can now move this virus around The numbers could take off just like they did in China and we have a better healthcare system that I think in place in China does but it's still a work in progress. He ducked one last question for you. so people. Even the president have suggested that the Koran virus would go away by April just as temperatures warm How do you feel about that? Well I've a Lotta respect for leadership in this country but I think the CDC and notable people might feel a little bit differently and their opinion is that this may be around For close to a year I came out this morning but said that the CDC director this morning said that he expected to be around for a year. Yeah I I would probably agree with that We call it a novel. Toronto VIRUS THAT MEANS NOBODY HAS ANY ANTIBODY. protection against this virus so it's going to spread through our communities as it's going to and if you don't have antibody production that means you're going to get sick and then you're going to spread on you know to family members so. I think there's potential for this to be a little more Significant more than fifteen cases that we've described it could certainly go on longer than April Karl. We want to let him go ahead. Yeah I I was Gonna ask the ducks something that about a third day into this. The health officials gave each of us at digital thermometer. We are required now to take your temperature three times a day and of course more often if we show any signs any one with a temperature over ninety nine point five just immediately. Call the downstairs to the hospital here on ship and then they come up and do a saliva test that Sampo as you mentioned. Those kits are actor. They'll go back to a lab in Tokyo and takes about eighteen hours for us to get the results back and that's why our numbers have increased. Probably on a twenty four hour basis. My question is is this the Mamata the temperature a good sign and should then we advise everybody to get a digital thermometer and just be constantly monitoring each other? Yeah the short answer is absolutely. That's how we screen large numbers of people remember in America. The airports we were screaming a couple of airports and they expanded to seven or eight. And you just have people walking through these Scanners that record That that the temperatures of people so we know fever and cough are the hallmark of corona virus. So it be unlikely for anybody to have an active case of Corona Without a fever unless they were going to develop that you know two and three days later but yeah. That's the hallmark.

Haha but funny that he actually owns a radio station and then he happens to be on this cruise and then I'm so fortunate that we could get Dr Robert Winters on an infectious disease doctor. So it's really great. So Ron is going to give some statistics. Let's jump in real quick. Tony we a couple of weeks ago. We covered this corona virus. We had Linda Moulton on right and at the time we were shocked how quickly we got to eight thousand people that were infected. Currently as of today The latest I've got out of the The World Health Organization is sixty four thousand four thirty five infected with the virus and Deaths are are now at thirteen eighty three thirteen. Thirteen eighty-three died from this three outside of China. So the numbers are going up astronomically fast. It seems to us at least Also as much and we got the the diamond cruise ship The Princess Cruise. Thirty seven hundred people on board quarantined in Yokohama. Since February third and so far they've Seven hundred seventy people have been tested. Two hundred eighteen of them have tested positive including some crew members. Thirty two of those people are Americans. Carl being one of them and ten people so far are considered in very serious condition onboard. That boat maybe Karl can give us some more insight on that and today as a matter of fact just before we came on here Tony. It turns out that In that port. They're starting the lead a few people off the ship. There's been eleven passengers as far as I know that they're not just letting them off their right. They're still under warranty. They have to be out there. The elderly patients if they're over eighty or they have a serious medical condition in one of these windowless rooms. They've let eleven people off the boat. Who now have to sit in a quarantine by the government facility till February nineteenth. So it's been no picnic. I'm sure car will tell us all about that but Why don't we go to the doctor now? Right telling the doctor winters Tell us about because we've heard a lot of doctors say oh it's just a big overblown and then there's other doctors saying that panic panic or at least you know be prepared. What is your thoughts? And what is your research on this new disease out there? I mean should we be scared or should just prepared good afternoon gentlemen? Well I can tell you this virus got onto my radar towards the very end of December. And I I've been impressed by the way the numbers have just been increasing On a daily basis I think everything and Madison. We always like to sort of put it in perspective and I wouldn't minimize what's going on with the corona virus on the other hand. I just throw out that. The reality is through Yesterday there have been twenty six million cases of influenza in in America and fourteen thousand deaths. So that's really. That's a huge problem. Sued Corona the current virus. You know this has legs to it and I have to say again I. I'm impressed with the increasing numbers and the figures that you cited at the beginning are the numbers that I have well over sixty four thousand Key documented cases. And that's probably still under reporting when it comes out of China right. That's where we wanted to talk about that doctor. You feel that they are actually higher. I fairly certain most healthcare professionals that have an interest in international epidemiology would agree that China tend to under report. First of all the number two as you may recall a couple of days ago. There was this huge increase in the number of reported cases because It was now based on clinical criteria instead of actually having a a a a laboratory results proving that it was corona virus so in one day they increased cases up to fourteen thousand while the reality is i. I think this virus in China is significantly more than sixty four thousand And I think it will continue to be a problem and eventually I think it will make its way to the United States in significant numbers not like influenza which I just voted twenty six million but I think it will continue to Bro. He gave a quick question for you. You just cited influenza there. I thought that the difference about the corona virus is the fact that the morale at Mortality rate is so high compared to influenza. It's dramatically lower. I think it's over two percent two point two percent or something. They're saying that's true. Influenza mortality is well below one percent this virus. The Crow virus clearly has an ability to be contagious and spread very very easily. And I think one of the most problematic issues regarding the viruses. People can spread this before. They themselves become Significantly ill or symptomatic. Now you have this potential group of people that otherwise feel well. And they have the ability to transmit this virus to uninfected people. And that's a real concern for sure. Yeah and saw Carl. I'm GonNa Bring you on because I mean you're like you said Ground Zero and I'm sure it was a shock when you got the news that you were quarantined but could you give us an account with what's going on now. Have the numbers right Risen on the boat The numbers still say a to eighteen but there are a lot of ambulances out there and sirens going so my suspicion is numbers are going to continue to increase. I'm sitting. It's early Saturday morning year in Yokohama. So I'm sitting out. They luckily move our ship. The diamond princess the opposite way after we went out to see a couple of days ago because I was looking for many days right on the dock and all the ambulances and roxy now. They've given us a change of scenery by turning this ship around. So I have a beautiful view of the Yokohama. Bridge and the entire skyline of Yokohama. As I sit here this morning yeah I have a couple of questions for the doctor First of all we've heard and there's been so much misinformation about this Not just from the ship but mostly social media and websites but as I understand it once. We finished our fourteen day quarantine. We're pretty much free of the virus. Correct I would agree with that with with a caveat or to the reality is if you're not being exposed to a general population of individuals that you yourself are self quarantined. Then we we do feel. The virus has a incubation period of between one and fourteen days. So if you've had no other you know person contact I would think that You're pretty safe after fourteen. Days ship is Rather closed environment. It's not like the general population of a city where he comes and goes so you folks are a real close population. I don't know exactly what they're doing on your ship. But if you are keeping yourself self quarantine yeah I would think that Fourteen days should be magic number. You just have to remember. This viruses spread very very easily through respiratory droplets coughing and sneezing through saliva. Actually TALKING TO SOMEBODY. There can always be a little bit of a spray when you're talking if you get really excited and all obviously can be spread through a nasal discharge as well so you can imagine a runny nose. Let alone sneezing creep. These huge Aerosol. If you're not exposed to that type of Individual I would think fourteen days Where you Not Come Down with. This would be a pretty good indication that you are not infected. We've been told that the virus can spread from our feet touching the floor from touching railings. elevator by is that true. A virus can stay active and in fact people at least the data. That's that I'm familiar with right now for several hours. And that's from the CDC and didn't really quantitative what several days. So I'll let you decide but The virus can still be infectious on surfaces for several hours after it's been contaminated by an infected individual so. I think you washing your hands Soap and water and the alcohol based hand. Sanitizers would be very very important to ship so doctor. You seeing that the doctor you saying that Karl could be in the clear here. Because he's passed the fourteen days he'll walk off the ship and run his hand on the railing and someone else had made me touch it and then become infected at that point absolutely. Hopefully if you're not infected now you can certainly pick it up b o subsequent to your Being told all clear so you'd have to be very careful. I think hand washing is very very important. Yes thank Carl. Had another question situation is we have been quarantine in our cabins. Will be in our Kevin's until February. Nineteen O Mikes But but what I believe happened was when when a passenger from Hong from Chinese and he got off the ship in Hong Kong. He four days later came down with a virus. We call him. Ground Zero. We raised back to Yokohama. Harbor was the tail end. The Last Day of our Sixteen Day Cruise. Yokohama hardware is about an hour outside of Tokyo and we were scheduled to fly back to Angeles that Tuesday Sunday night. They raised back to the harbour and kept US docked and then they've we were still had reign of the ship on Monday. Tuesday morning. They discovered ten more. They went and tested each of us and Tuesday on two on Tuesday morning. They came up with ten. More people came down with the virus and it seems so just spread after that and I think Dr you you hit the nail on the head when you said you can go three four five days without realizing you had the virus which was the case of Ground Zero patients. He didn't discover it until he was off the ship for four days and by then he probably had infected a good chunk of of of the Princess cruise passengers and then it spread from there. So we're now up to two hundred and eighteen right well represents about say that represents about seventy percent of what I would say that to get off the ship and get to your life. I would be I'd make every attempt to keep yourself isolated You know through February nineteenth if that's the target date and In hand washing the alcohol based hand sanitizers or are also very effective. You always look for a product that has about sixty percent alcohol by content if you're using the hand sanitizers but they are very very effective at getting rid of this virus in terms of you know regular soap and water and the hand sanitizer so don't get infected on your way out. That would be a disaster. Doc HOW DO THEY KEEP? How do they keep the? Because I'm sure there's events in every cabin how do they keep the virus from going through vents or can't go through we have it's a tango through vents but we've been assured by the princess authorities and by the way the Japanese health officials have all been on boarding station here? They brought in forty-eight more doctors about fifty five more nurses so we've got a full hospital Up here on the ship. What they have assured us is. The air that comes into our cabins is fresh air from the ship. It is not recycled there so we don't need to worry about that. We're delivering meals three times a day. We have to have masks on. We open up the door to get the meal from the crew Meals and as the doctor mentioned they've been giving us Hand Hand Sanitizer soap That has high alcohol and we also have gloves so princess and the health officials have been doing everything they can to keep this down to a minimum everyone. And how doc how do you think that they're gonNA KEEP?.
"carl goldman" Discussed on Wealth Is In The Details Podcast
"Confront a multitude of financial decisions listen in as Peter share stories and insight into people's wealth journeys now let's get in Good Morning Eric how are you I'm good Carl thanks for being here man thank you for having me it's a pleasure gay Peter he's the one that brought you I'm just along for the ride man this is I think it's a such an important calling that that you're involved in helping people that really such an important time in in their family's world I looked at reviewed and it's almost like I am they're present because mighty arrangement folders are full of the information and the request that the families that I've met have given me it always works well Y- leads into the next question is why do your clients me with you what what is it that that drives them to do advanced planning what's what's their goal and and what are your goals people will come to in writing in place there is a second reason that people do this and sometimes this is financial and again you have a financial podcast so people do people prefund and prepay funeral services in advance when the funeral homes fees are P- refunded they are locked in and guaranteed forever and never go up so the object by contracts so the object is we get to say the families literally hundreds of times a year you don't owe us anything because you paid for everything five years ago ten years ago or twenty years ago or whenever is a real financial advantage to getting things done many of your listeners probably own grave lots at cemeteries and many of them may have purchased this them been aware of them for many many years but they're they're and they're ready for when they need them well it's kind of the same concept with funeral arrangements you do at once and you don't do it end so there's a real financial advantage to getting it done there is another reason that families often call us to make funeral arrangements in that is for what's called a petit official Medicaid spend down so here's how I define a medicaid spend down when it relates how it relates to what I do for people pretending that a a senior aide typical senior has to go into a nursing home or facility like it in that senior will have a certain amount or pile of assets from which the nursing home we'll take take take every month until they're almost all gone it doesn't matter what those assets are they're just they're in there taken away until they're almost all gone at which point the family applies for Medicaid which will kick in and then pay for the seniors care at the facility from that point forward what Medicaid in nursing homes want families to do before the senior reaches that Medicaid Eligibility level is to pluck out some of the funds from that pile into pay for the services that the family wants to have when the funeral home does everything right which I know that we do the family it's a contract from us it says a couple of things that are important one that the services that they desire would've they've turned out to be they've been funded into that the agreement between us been termed irrevokable or Medicaid eligible words meaning the same things and what that means to a family is that it will then become an asset of the seniors that Medicaid can never take away it is legitimate expense for again what's called the Medicaid spend out there are other things that people can do in order to helps spend down assets to qualify for Medicaid but when I'm helping people that's the main thing that's important to them that the services have been funded with the seniors own funds one again help spend down their assets into so that the survivors are not subject to the financial responsibility the time a funeral services have to happen yeah that's a those are two really important benefit certainly that that the emotional benefit of of pre-planning and financial and from for many people that that Medicaid spend down is is is significant really should be part of the discussion the estate planning discussion for for a lot of people undestood in life we have prepared for many many things you know we all have insurances we have car insurance in case we get into an accident you know we have a health insurance in case we get sick and the funny thing is that if those things never happened you purchase something that you don't really need but you have those insurances anyway just in case well if it makes sense to present to prepacked yourself and your family from things that might happen it does make more or equal sense to protect them from something that definitely will happen I do talks in front of groups all the time and get a lot of interesting questions and one of the questions I get often is with advances in medicine and people living longer how has that affected the death rate and I usually answer by saying that over the years in our area the death rate has remained remarkably consistent it's one hundred percent so true Carl eggs of so you've touched upon Y- The benefits of of pre planning and you've actually talked a little about the quences of not being prepared is there anything else you'd like to add relative to to not preparing for for for funerals and and and and final arrangements I've seen both circumstances and in your own imagination you can imagine and maybe you've been through it yourself and I'm talking to your listeners now much more comfort people get knowing that they do not have to make these arrangements at the time somebody passes away so I've seen it both ways people in panic people in crisis because nothing's been planned but people who and then as opposed to people who are confident that their wishes will be obeyed and followed by their survivors in the survivors know that they are fulfilling the wishes of the people that they love it's a great comfort really is you see a call one of the questions I have is that let me make this comment I think one of the great advantages of being affiliate ah affiliated with a religious community is that that community typically does life's big events really well they're involved in in some way but how how did those families that are not affiliated how how did they deal with advance planning it is true that we live today a more secular society than we might have lived in when we were growing up there are people who can set of the many more people consider themselves to be nonreligious are not affiliated up final arrangements have very can have as much religious significance as people wish but can also have no religious significance a final arrangement or a funeral arrangement has more to do with paying tribute to deceased comforting the mourners recognizing that a life has been lived and providing respects to the deceased into the survivors whether that final arrangement entails religious services or not that can be completely up to every individual family every individual but everyone deserves to be remembered to remember and to be remembered are two very natural and healthy and univer- missile human emotions that's why we have cemeteries where people go to visit the deceased we have monuments to deceased heroes like Lincoln where we go visit and remember them so it is part of our Cuban experience that we must remember the people we love and we do want to be remembered and honored by the people that we love it a death of a person is an important day in the life of the community and you know shouldn't be a in my opinion ignored so that's why people have services and why they have gatherings and so even even if you're not affiliated with a religious community you can do advanced planning in the way that you that you feel comfortable that your family off feels comfortable with as I said before I'm using the words final arrangements and funeral interchangeably final arrangements can be anything at that people wish from nothing and by nothing I mean people will often say this is just going to be a cremation with no service was this is going to be a burial in the ground of a casket with no service and that's a disposition to there's just no service that's absolutely appropriate for people who wished to do that so no matter what your individual wishes are the process of getting these things done and the benefits of getting them done really are exactly the same there are really four steps involved when people start thinking about this the first is that they're going to reflect on what's important to them deciding that type of service that they want and what they would like to have happen the second part of it is going to record their wishes you can record it with this with a funeral home you can record it and the personal planning guide which by Dignity Memorial Offers Stansky chapels offers the third step is to support those decisions either support them financially or see support them by telling everyone that's involved of what your wishes are and who to call and what to do with the time that the phone call has to be made and you are going to share that with every one that's important to you so that there's no question time I'll just no it's a phone call to make he's such a good point I think I'm reminded as we're talking to families and and and talking to generations That car conversation is really the most important thing that that that families talk about what their goals and aspirations are not just around final arrangement but just also about as you enter into different phases of life whether you know it's a a medical situation or whether there's a need for assisted living or or we just talked to our our children our parents but what they want what I do with people is exactly right Peter what I do with people has very little to do with dying it really has to do with living and living with the fact that you know that these plans were replace and that people are going to know what's going to happen at the time it becomes inevitable for for all of us Carla let's talk a little bit about just kind of the the grain Euler aspects of of of making final arrangements how are the consumer is protected so I there is typically in a lot of cases there are there's a money being spent what happens to these prepaid funds so I would like people to look at this as a consumer purchase when they go to a funeral home in they determined that you know at this is a good idea we are going to prefund are all services and they make that decision the from that point they're looking at it as a consumer purchase but it is a unique consumer purchase in that when you go to a store can you give them money they give you something to take home you know here's the table here's television whatever you've made that exchange while when people come to me when they come just an ski chapels and they give us funds in advance they really have nothing to take home except pieces of paper a contract that says that we promised to do this for you at some future date that we don't know when it's going to be so because of that your money has to be protected and luckily and massacre who sits it's very consumer friendly when people pay a funeral home in advance the funeral home cannot keep the money the funds by half to go to and be held by somebody it isn't the funeral home it's usually bank trust or an insurance company but they both work the same way the insurance company or the bank trust holds.
