"This's connects in depth along with Charles Feldman, Mike Simpson, the Dodgers air back in the world, Siri's with their third chance in four years to shake the demons that have stood in between them and a championship. At the end of the show will talk with Dodgers broadcaster Charley Steiner to ask if the Dodgers can take home their first championship in 32 years. Right now back to what we were talking about just a few minutes ago with doctor found, see this idea that summer was the chance to get some things rites lower that case, right. So then, when winter came and things started going up again because people rent doors And colder weather hits that we'd be able to get a handle more of a handle on this virus. Well, we've got about 50,000 new covert infections reported every day. The predictions for the pandemic are looking increasingly dark Daughter Alexandra, Feeling a member of the Center for Global Health Science and security professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology had to Georgetown University. Doctor. Thanks for being with us. There's a quote floating around from the health officials saying, Look, the next 6 to 12 weeks can be some of the darkest times. We're going to experience. What is your thought on that? Uh, so I actually think we may even be looking a little bit longer. I think we're looking at the last the last two weeks. We've had a 30% increase in the cases here in the United States, and the fact that we're on that increase makes me really worried that it's actually going to take us quite a huge if it if we if we have an effort to turn that ship around, and so I worry that It's going to actually a DACA. You know, 12, a chain wakes ahead around 6 to 12 now pushes. You know there are people out there who say Well, of course we have. Higher numbers of people infected because the country has gotten a lot better attesting. More people are getting testing and show so we're going to inevitably have more people. Testing positive for Cove it but that's not a very good argument, is it? So I mean, obviously, testing increases who will pick up cases that we didn't know We had, particularly people who are asymptomatic or you may not be showing symptoms yet, but what we saw what we've seen over the last few months is, you know these increases in testing and then followed by two weeks later, we start to see the increase in hospitalizations that was not safe increase in deaths after that, So there's a little other indicators we use such as no percent positivity. That sort of gives side here. It really Just an artifact of more testing, But you know it is. It is much more complex than just more testing means we're going to get more positives. You know, we are seeing more positives and more transmission within the community. So what about the other? Why? Which is you know? Why would this happen if we are wearing masks, and if we are mostly doing what we're supposed to some segments of the economy are still closed down, Is it Just that there is inevitable spread indoors when people move indoors. Is this coupled with fatigue for some of those restrictions, and not everybody playing along? Yeah. I mean, it's a great point. I think the realities is here in the United States. We we don't have everyone you know, complying with with the different measures, and not everyone has a very able to comply with a different measures. You know, we haven't seen governments around the country provide those supportive services to ensure that people can stay harm. We've seen, you know, most countries in California is still in the safe home phase. But most of the states around the country back into the new normal. Um, you know, the reality is we don't have the uptake of masks of physical distancing of hand washing of ventilation, rapid testing contact, tracing all these things that we no need to be being done at scale on DH. The real challenges is when you know when winter comes. It's not as though that there's anything inherent about winter that makes this makes covert worse. But it is how behavior changes and I think you're absolutely right. One of the big factors as we're goingto winter is is people getting tied on DH people, perhaps not being as vigilant as they were on. Do you know this is has been a long hole, and it's very stressful is understandable, but it really is important to come back to those basics. Maintain things like masks, physical distancing, hand washing. Dr Alexander Feeling member of the Center for Global Health, Science and security professor at Georgetown. Pastors from churches across seven California say they have had enough. Of what they claim is unfair targeting of religious groups during this pandemics, or when connects in depth continues. We will talk about that now. The news in brief Here's Karen at thanks, Charles. The L. A County Economic Development Corporation, says the jobless rate for the county will remain on the higher side for awhile.

"Ten seventy newsradio this is K. N. X. in depth along with Charles Feldman Mike Simpson you know you're you're taking off a couple of days and I have this this notion of you this picture if you're getting on an airplane and flying off to some exotic for yeah yeah they're asking in the on the beach in going to the finest restaurants is that what you're doing I'm gonna have that picture to only on my couch with my eyes well well the new realities with widespread corona virus testing still scares researchers might have come up with a simple solution a smart phone app that asks you to enter in any kind of weird symptoms you might be experiencing and the app then can apparently help predict where the next covert outbreak is going to occur will look at that coming up in just a few minutes right now though prices for a lot of goods and services have fallen dramatically over the last a couple of months to check out the sales for online shopping sites to getting those emails good deals to be had out there but one place that should just about all of us been forced to go to because we need food at the grocery store is in the midst of a price explosion John Springer executive editor of the industry journal Winsight grocery business as the John what's going on how higher are these prices you start to notice if you go to the store with any regularity and all of us do that that number that is usually if you buy all the same stuff pretty similar it has a few more dollars added to it yeah and you know it this is you know with all the effects of the of the coronavirus prices is manifesting itself in the grocery store and that includes everything from higher transportation costs to you know other strains on supply chain and basically how the grocery stores work which you don't have to do with kind of getting their inventory and taught you don't recall just in time inventory and suddenly it got all cut to demand that they weren't ready for at that puts additional course into the system and it's it's ending up on your see at the end of the day well as I understand it too I mean the the costs have gone up at a at a at a pretty rapid clip compared to him for more recent years isn't that the case absolutely you know when you talk to me two years ago or you know the grocers were or pull their hair out because they're the worst yeah disinflation or deflation for quite a long time and that made it very difficult on the grocers because they could leverage their fixed costs when their prices are going up so this was coming it is you know with the crisis going on it calling all at once in a little more dramatically than it normally does this all of us doing the panic shopping and buying things so then the price just increases because I know we want to buy it or is it the stores upping the prices to you know kind of ration us and so we don't buy so much or is this just a supplier telling the stories Hey our prices are higher now and you got to pay him and then we have to pay him in the end yeah it's a little bit of called a county called the home you know one of the things that's happening in and I was just talking with a friend he was telling me this morning he said I haven't bought a can of tuna fish in two months because that are on sale anymore well what happened is that that suppliers have needed at the request of the retailers and the need to hold back on the kinds of promotions they do because they don't want to put something on sale that they're going to be sold out of on the shelves so that's probably a bit of it is well there is a fine line I suspect though between rising costs for legitimate reasons and price gouging we had it where is that line how to run how does a customer to supermarket know when the increased cost is a legitimate increased cost for all the reasons we just talked about and when it tips through that line tips over that line and is now just good old fashioned price gouging yeah I don't I don't we've got to get going on your lease is off or or is it dramatically in their consumer might perceive it to think about because the last thing I heard retailer wants is that reputation so I I mean I I think there are some key then and and they'll come out and be litigated and everything else when there are R. for situations like that but but the retailers are doing all they can to keep their prices down and and you know from what sources are telling me you know this is going to be the case for a little bit you wait towards country to open up again in the competition coming back in from restaurant that you know grocery stores are going to want to hold on to these customers that they've been kind of gifted with as a result of a older competitors shutting down that will act to bring prices down in in in a lot of ways back first was the eggs and then the meats and some other things A. for people who don't pay attention to the price of the the thing they grab off the shelf but just the receipt price at the end is it everything in the store is going up or are only still certain products going up an average doubles are still fine broad based yeah you mentioned a couple of categories where workings are a little out of whack I mean that the the perishable products like eggs and meat and produce are subject to a lot of things like the weather in and you know other things that tend to make them a little more volatile by nature and you know obviously you know the meet the tuition in the country it is nearing a crisis with you know coronavirus cases that a lot of the large processing plants and and the product is coming in in this coming into the wall when that leading to prices and then down the supply chain to the farmers are having some crisis out of this so there's a lot that needs to be worked out and and yeah in the the perishable categories tend to be most volatile but we're also seeing you know prices rising in in things that are garner a lot of demand light baking products everybody in America has become a master Baker now and they've got to get out of there we are not a banana bread on his the bakery people want to bake the bread at home but you know John I I guess I still don't get weird what three months so most into this crisis I still don't understand why there are paper shortages why you're still walk into a supermarket and you may or may not find paper towels toilet paper tissues that I still don't get yeah what are familiar with what I was mentioning earlier the you know just in time inventory where you know that the company can come very sophisticated about forecasting that demand for the things that they buy and retailers no longer keeping Long Beach storage of things in the background I I get I get that but but that's sort of the explanation that we were getting three months ago people were saying well the reason why you're seeing shortages because you know this isn't the way they're they're used to distributing it and they have to gear up their factories to produce all this but we're like three months into this wise it's still that way most of what I've heard is that you know these these supplies are coming back in the stores but yeah I mean it does relate really into the idea of the the kind of a shock to the system that they had this evening shift in in demand has meant for for grocery store beer again you know Merican spent more than fifty percent of their phone dollar away from home and either spending nearly all of that storm so it is you know that's definitely because you know delays and higher prices and slowness throughout the supply chain John Springer made second better Hindi street journal when science grocery business when a cane X. indepth continues researchers at Harvard might have just come up with a simple way to overcome the continued lack of testing for coronavirus infections thirty.

"Extend seventy newsradio listening to KNX in depth along with Charles Feldman Mike Simpson well we all have found out in the past three weeks what we don't have a lot of women of toilet paper hand sanitizer of all that stuff you can't get a release it's really hard to get food food has not been a big problem yet but a little later in the show we're gonna talk about some problems that are now starting to crop up and it may have a great impact on the food supply chain right now though when the first cases of this virus were reported out of China they were characterized as a possibly new form of pneumonia which led to treating the critical patients with ventilators botched we may have been approaching things the wrong way Dr Alan Katz is a specialist in hyperbaric in emergency medicine practicing in Manhattan and Long Island New York so Dr Cass what do you make of how we've been treating this virus all along I'm not quite sure I mean part of what I think we are approaching wrong at this point is treating it as a viral disease as a standard pneumonia and most of what we're really starting to see is that it's acting more as a disease where we were unable to oxygenate the body the lungs itself mechanically a working well but were unable to oxygenate we're seeing patients that are purely hypoxic so we have is being put into the body but it's not transferred from belongs to the blood and it's not carried properly from the blood around to the rest of the organs so that would mean I would gather that the treatments that are being tried to a large degree the antivirals anti inflammatories may not work as some doctors think they would yeah yes and no in laboratory possibly but part of what has to happen is we need to find a better way to get oxygen to the body to the tissue what we're saying is that the the lens itself are because of the viral particles attaching to lung tissue were starting to secrete induced fluid and this is creating a barrier that's not allowing oxygen to be transferred to the blood and then on top of that we're finding that the the blood itself the hemoglobin in the blood is not attaching properly to oxygen it's not allowing oxygen to be carried around the body in some ways we're seeing it appears to be that the virus itself is really destroying the him portion of arena Globant which really means that we're releasing our iron iron is traveling around our body and it's not the appropriately your carrying oxygen so we can give somebody as much oxygen as we want by ventilation but we're not getting the oxygen to the to the body it's not being the past from the long into the blood and once it gets to the blood it's not being attached to our hemoglobin so it can't be brought to the body to Citrix so presented with all that what can you do well that's a very different we have different clients I mean part of what I would like to see experimented with and used more I'm in the state the use of hyperbaric oxygen I mean hyperbaric oxygen Israel using oxygen under increased pressure and if we start to do that we can carry oxygen in the blood stream we can get more oxygen dissolved we can really bypass him a good but as you know there is a a shortage or at least a lot of places in the country are concerned that there is going to be a shortage with ventilators I suspect that there are far fewer Eric chambers or whatever you call the the machines then there are ventilators so if this is a treatment that ends up being effective do you have enough equipment to treat people what would it be I hope would be that in using hyperbaric oxygen we would be able to shut down an inflammatory response which we know we can do and we can then take patience and reversed the need for needing ventilation my hope would be that after a ship few as two or three treatments we would have patients that would no longer require ventilation if we look way back to nineteen eighteen your actual uses of hyperbaric oxygen during the Spanish flu there was a guy yet doctor rob Cunningham in Kansas city actually treated several patients with the Spanish flu using hyper Berwick's successfully have you seen a tried during this outbreak well there are case reports that they're now we have some case reports out of China where they report on the success in treating several patients and we have very limited dated there and there's some problems going on right now the clinical trials dot gov where there are few centers around the United States starting to look at it more but the the take home for me in the world of treating a covert nineteen is that it needs to be treated as a pure hypoxia the danger in this disease is not getting oxygen to the tissues the mechanical ventilators are not going to be all that useful for us because it's not a problem with the function of ventilation the lungs are not failing the lungs are are are squeezing the lungs are bringing air into and out of our bodies Robbins at the interface of the LBO liable under attack from the blood and the blood ability to carry oxygen and that's really where we need to focus you know we've asked a every expert I think probably on this program the same questions I'll ask you the same question does anybody really knows yet how lethal this particular virus is and by that I mean the percentage of people who contracted and pretty much go about their lives normally or maybe have a you know a small issue with it as opposed to those who end up in critical care well as you know you probably have twenty five percent of the population that has that is positive for Kobe to choose zero symptoms at all and over all of the patients that are even symptomatic it's only about one and one in five they're even sick enough to need to go to a hospital but other stations that are going to the hospital being treated with mechanical ventilation the metallic is very high we've not been successful little wall in treating patients using mechanical ventilation it would cover it the stock around cash specialist in hyperbaric emergency medicine in Manhattan and Long Island New York Dr Katz thanks when we continue how the nation's food supply is holding up as we enter our second month economic long the internet has changed so should the way.

"To K. next in depth along with Charles Feldman Mike Simpson in just a few minutes we are going to talk with an LA based doctor who I has developed a method to identify the most critical coronavirus patients much earlier in the process and it could help save a lot of lives right now the only normal times millions of Christians across the country we gather today in their churches to mark Good Friday be back on Sunday for Easter but so for most that won't be happening will be forced to substitute services over the holiday weekend with listening to sermons in the living rooms you know zoom service like we've talked about here reference at Dr J. Herbert Nelson stated clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian church the Rev let's start with what's your doing what your recommending for this holiday read more thank you for having me and as we approach the only weekend and certain holy day for Christians all across the globe I think there are various ways by which we are continuing to adapt to the cold virus and try to take precautions and in many ways we have seen an uptick in so many ways with the woman of the social media operations we have also seen over and over again individuals experimenting with new possibilities for ministry and how to carry out during this particular event and see the a very strong of celebration with regards to use there and what it represents with the resurrection of Jesus Christ can a Reverend at us and stay with us because we are going to be joined in this discussion with a Monsignor Stewart a sweat when Jim who is president of Donnelly college which is a Catholic institution in Kansas city Kansas and the reason why we're going to Kansas is because the democratic governor of that state is engaged in a legal fight with the Republican controlled legislature over closing churches this weekend in the state of Kansas or munching or what's the situation there well the governor did put out a executive order a twenty eighteen executive order it was his number in which it did band religion specifically religion had been considered and is considered both of the governments and local regulations and essential activity but the governor wanted to limit religious gatherings to ten persons I'm not counting the minister and this was overturned in our current situation the legislative the representatives and the senators had given power to their leaders to act as a potential veto of an executive order they did not agree with and the Republican led Senate and house of representative representatives on the council overturned the governor's edict and now that's going to our Supreme Court which will be meeting in emergency session tomorrow the good news for your listeners is that almost every religious organization especially all the main Christian denominations are following the spirit of the law even if the law right now is being disputed what do you think about this place is they're gonna hold out though if if some do in their other parts of the country to where we've seen services is still going on is actually saying police show up in some cases and in trying to shut them down or give tickets right it right now for a religious institution especially one that would call itself Christian it would actually go against their Christian teaching about love of neighbor to put their neighborhood their city their local how the prisoners and anyone who the person is coming contact with subsequent to a gathering into danger of the spread of this virus so it would be actually contradictory for Christian organization to hold a service at this particular time at least in Kansas where the virus is active river net Nelson do you know of any churches that the congregation is somewhat defiant and and is insisting on on gathering anyway we've not had that within the Presbyterian church USA at least nothing that has been reported to our office but we are aware you're in the local community of mobile Kentucky where I hit one of the located where there have been some refusal of the congregation here to edit distancing laws they have continued to worship on some Sunday into the season of lent basically ignoring the virus that is among those with us and because we live off the glass they have been fully who have been able to show up during the worship services I think more as a presence in that particular community but in reality they have not been any arrests and I think some of that is attempting to adhere to the issues of the freedom of religion but it also represents and the minds of the commissioners particularly within the Presbyterian church USA that worship right now wants to be self imposed of stepping back in any kind of public worship hello gathered and that we should be sent out the nomination and also other mainline denominations that are familiar with we should actually adhere to the guidelines that have been given to us with regard to the practices during Star Monsignor I've seen people say look I need something uplifting I've got to go to church it's it's Easter but can you still get that feeling can you can you get it over the internet can you get over taper fifty do resume services even if you're at home what we understand that especially Catholics we take bodily nets very seriously our sacraments are very bodily things bread and wine oil water we believe very much in in the moral presence of being together in person physically but right now we have to as a further sacrifice in a further act of love we have to forego that coming together as the body of Christ for the common good and it is for the common good because not just for our person is it's for everybody when they might be in contact with in any way so we can do if you will a second best I I run a college as well

"Charles Feldman Mike Simpson well to say the least it's been a rocky first week for millions of students teachers parents as everyone adjusts to the new reality of closed schools and home learning California state superintendent of education will join us at the bottom of the hour for a progress report right now though here in LA just as the stores were starting to get ahead of the customers of stripping the shelves yesterday shelter in place order send people back to the stores but there's no food shortage right we're talking to people Jayson Lusk director of the department of agriculture economics at Purdue University and Doug Baker vice president of the food industry association representing food retail and wholesale companies so W. we we say it time and time again just going by what you need but some people still are buying too much yeah unfortunately you know this is a time where consumers want to have have some sort of feeling of control and that is the way they can get they can control some of their environment and that and that is going out buying up those goods for what they are worried is prolong stay at home he and unfortunately there's a concern that grocery stores will be closed down and I think that message needs to be very loud and clear that the White House and state governments are are going to keep the grocery stores open and those supply chains are viable the wooden Z. the best way to kind of knock out this this in in many cases unfounded fear and and you're right I mean some people probably think oh my god I'm going to wake up tomorrow and the supermarkets going to be shut down and I'm not gonna get any food for me and my family that wouldn't one way to to resolve that is when you shop at the supermarket if you were just overflowing with food if you walk down the aisle and instead of finding no toilet paper no frozen food and canned food I know not to know peanut butter no jelly you found you can go on yeah I could that you found it is just overflowing and then people were might say you know this this is for a okay there's there's more than we can possibly want to buy why can't we do that in this country and why can't we do that fast well here's the issue of our stores are seeing anywhere from a hundred and fifty to three hundred percent increases the the supply chain no matter how many trucks you put on the road and how many people you put in the store you cannot keep up with those kind of increases since the last week of February hand sanitizer even though you can't find it has been having former per plus percent increases so what what's happening today is you have you have stores that are actually dropping pallets of paper towel and their error and toilet paper and they're just getting them on the floor they're not even getting them to the shelf and that's a challenge because those are high cube items right there really large they take up a lot of space and because they take up so much space on the shelf they take up so much space on the truck you can only push so much of that through the through the supply chain manufacturing is running twenty four seven right now and they're looking for efficiencies with insp within the supply chain within their manufacturing or working with retailers to reduce slower moving skews slower moving pack sizes slower moving scents and flavors in order to focus on those core skews the consumers are looking for today to get that pipeline fill back up we're probably two to three days behind in the supply chain but there is not a disruption in the supply chain and that should be a bigger concern for people than just having shortages and outages the supplies still flowing is just not falling fast enough because it's at peak capacity Jason was switched from paper goods to agriculture I mean we can still produce enough stuff certainly at this moment we're in very good shape in terms of be able to produce enough food and you know one of the things about agricultural commodity markets as they tend to be seasonal so for two particular a lot of compliments corn wheat soybeans you know we have right now what we're going to we're going to have because it was planted and harvested back this fall and so we're we're in pretty good shape and in terms of aggregate food supply in fact because some of our biggest export markets where we send food out of this country or places like China Japan that been heavily hit by this crisis so because they're not buying quite as much at the moment we may have more food left you're optimistic market so I think in terms of aggregate supply we're we're looking like we're in pretty good shape at the moment yeah you know a dog it is interesting listening to right to Jason because he is right in all those supermarkets I've been to in the past week there really isn't a shortage of produce you can find that all over the place no matter what and they may not have all the other stuff but they've got plenty of oranges and apples and you know whatever eight is that again because those are items that are what if you're easier to to stock or or what no not necessarily and we're seeing in other parts of the country again you you mentioned that as consumers get their news feed of the day they make their decisions as to what they need to do as far as pantry loading and so we've actually seen some produce department on the eastern part of the country that are a little bit further behind you guys there and they're just clearing the produce departments out again it's it's it's really about that supply one good thing that's going on that I think it's real important for people understand and out of a bad situation where we see restaurants in food service that is being asked to close we now have a partnership with the international food distributors association and we're actually they're sharing their resources and their product with the retail industry so drivers trucks capacity in the warehouse Ian products they typically would be going to grocery stores are now as we speak there being diverted back into the retail industry for us to then use at store so we can put more even more product into the retail supply chain still Baker vice president food industry association we also Jason Lusk director of department of agricultural economics adds Purdue thanks to both when K. next in depth continues we're gonna talk about whether there were some really smart and savvy investing by a group of our representatives.

"Newsradio this is K. next in depth along with Charles Feldman Mike Simpson coming up at the bottom of the hour on in depth millions of teachers students and their parents are now staring into the great unknown but the possibility that the corona virus could wipe out what was left of this entire academic year so where do we go from here and how do we make sure an entire generation of kids doesn't take a huge step backwards right now though the president's giving himself and his administration high marks in how they have responded to the outbreak not everybody agrees Gerry Connolly democratic congressman from Virginia who chairs the house subcommittee on government operations the congressman you gave your committee your thoughts on how Mr trump is doing can you give them to us well I believe that the president trump personally and this administration in general squandered eight weeks eight weeks in which we could have been making preparations for what was clearly a very lethal and highly infectious virus that was new to humanity and had wreaked havoc in China and he didn't do that in fact he did the opposite he assured the public that it was nothing that we have fifteen cases at most and that was going to get down to five and then zero that he was in total control that it was a hoax perpetrated by the fake media and his political opponents you know that anyone who wants to get a chance could all of that was false all of that was absolutely patently false and in doing that as president he gave some people false reassurance he slow down the ability of the federal government and the private sector to try to prepare themselves for the worst and now we find ourselves scrambling in the midst not only of the health crisis of unprecedented proportions but also an economic meltdown but isn't there also a much longer range problem here because I you know I I remember after nine eleven much was made about how the country needed to prepare for the event of for example bio terrorism which would be may be worse than what we're experiencing so far with corona virus and we spent some twenty years as a country spending billions trillions of dollars at supposedly building up things in the event of something like that and yet we don't have enough ventilators we don't have hand sanitizer we don't have that masks for a patients in for surgeons that isn't something that just happened under the watch of of this president that happened under the watch of Republican and democratic presidents didn't well I think it's fair to say the public health investments have been at best on even for a long time because we haven't had this kind of pandemic and and you know that's certainly true but I wouldn't let president trump off the hook it was letting off the hook I'm I'm simply making the point that that there's the immediate issue but then some of the things that we don't have enough all of in this country it seems or things that that wouldn't and couldn't happen in just what I but I'd like to address that so we did have a coordinating a pandemic coordinator at the National Security Council which was dismantled two years ago by this present this president in everyone of those budgets has proposed rather significant cuts including to international public health in the CDC budget last year this year's budget cut with nineteen percent and then included the very stockpiles you are talking about and the coordination with the VHS W. H. O. that we desperately need right now for masks and ventilators and test kits especially this president basically dismantled very well bus to telework programs in the federal government that will working so that now we don't have a lot to fall back on and it was scrambling to try to figure out what guidance we give two and two point one million federal employees plus hundreds of thousands of contract employees so those are all concrete decisions to reverse and cut back on machinery and infrastructure we have in place so every day we get the announcements for the White House there have a new directions new orders being signed if you could phone interview to get up at that podium with the with the coronavirus task force what is next on your list that needs to be done I think we have to have a crash separate to get cash and to help public health facilities including hospitals do mass testing of people drive through basis some hospitals are already beginning to do that but not all hospitals are equipped or have access to the task is we have very few tests could still in the United states given the size of our population and the scope of this emergency I think we have to have a robust talent work program for federal employees immediately federal employees are still going to work and congregating and there have been a number of federal employees already diagnosed with corona virus in the workplace that needs to stop you know obviously we're working on a third coronavirus legislative package that will be mammoth and unprecedented in scope incised to try to stabilize the economy and to make sure that additional diagnostics and treatment is made available to the public but in the long run we have to wait out the development of a vaccine which could take a year year and a half to develop and so I think we need a crash separate in terms of research and development to try to get that back scene expedited to protect the public Gerry Connolly and democratic congressman from Virginia chairs the house subcommittee on government operations so the on the governor of California Gavin Newsom yesterday really dropped a bombshell when he said in schools might be closed for the rest of this term that's a long time it's a long time so L. A. U. S. D. and other school districts up and down California are now navigating unchartered waters with long term school closures here's the thing about new cherry vanilla coke though cherries named first all the flavors tastes just as great I mean it could have just as easily been vanilla cherry coke or it could have been coke cherry vanilla and since it's too amazing flavors of coke it might have been cold vanilla cherry coke or cherry vanilla coke coke unless you're in France which would make it a cocktail of an island damage any Democrat.

"You're listening to take an axe in depth long Charles Feldman Mike Simpson TMZ often frustrates traditional media outlets because of its fast and usually accurate reporting but after the death of Kobe Bryant TMZ frustrated law enforcement groups for its quick confirmation that Kobe was indeed killed in a helicopter crash we'll talk about that with TMZ founder Harvey Levin at the bottom of the hour right now though the CDC will step up screening for the corona virus on passengers coming into twenty U. S. airports and tomorrow of flights full of American diplomats will leave the epicenter of the virus outbreak in China headed for Ontario airport Dr mama's adult job he's a senior scholar of an infectious disease specialist at the Johns Hopkins center for health security so doctor let's start with the plane that's coming here because they put out statements they're taking pains to tell everybody it's gonna be okay the B. B. screenings in Alaska before even flies here there's a separate hanger but still a plane full of people coming right from behind is cause for concern for some of us yeah I understand why the cause for concern but it's important to remember that this infectious disease as well contained United States we have a very robust protocols and they're going to be screened on exit from Wuhan screen when the refill in Alaska and screamed again when they land in Ontario airport in California so there really is no reason for the public to worry because this is being done in a very controlled manner and we know how to screen passengers we've got five cases United States maybe all been we discovered using our screening for a purpose our screening procedures so I don't have any worry about the individual coming back a war well is there any confirmation out of that the one report I think it was a doctor in China who said that it appeared as if someone could have the corona virus and not be not show any symptoms for as long as two weeks and then still come down with it because of that would be the case wouldn't that make screening somewhat problematic right so this is a very controversial claim that was made by the Chinese government position that possibly there was some transmission that occurred when someone didn't have symptoms and that's something we see with influenza about one day before you get into but it's not something that we've seen in the past the corona virus we there are six known corona viruses and none of them transmit that way and if he if he hasn't seen any kind of transmission that way and that type of transmission isn't what drives epidemics anyway so I think it's something that needs to be followed up and screwed nice but I don't think that there is strong evidence that we can say incontrovertible that that happened and we do have procedures in place that will be used to follow these patients on to them if they develop symptoms it will know who their contact our etcetera so I don't think even with that kind of controversial claim that we have any any reason to fear these individual coming back for more what we know about so the victims people who have actually died from the virus are there similarities are they a elderly people were they already sick from something else like sometimes we do see with the flu definitely we're seeing clustering of death in older people in that common with any respiratory infection because older people often have other comorbid conditions other medical conditions that they may have it less reserved in and they often do not represent the bulk of gas when you're talking about a respiratory illness or pneumonia and that's really what we're seeing coming out of China the pointer over there have been no deaths outside of China reported which I think is very encouraging but we do really need to understand what are the risk factors for death what are the risk factors for severity in really understand the ratio of severe cases a mild case I mean it could be another words that that the vast majority of people who contract this the virus might have very mild symptoms at this at the case it definitely is a case if you look at the latest WHS situation just came out a few hours ago they are confirming that most cases of the novel coronavirus are mild with the caveat that there are some cases that are severe and there have been deaths we really have to understand what the breakdown is as we get better understanding in diagnosing this infection in the community we may see more and more mild cases and that ratio maybe skewed much more toward mild cases into severe or fatal cases that we need to find a doctor in Mr dolls a senior scholar infectious disease specialist Johns Hopkins center for health security Dr thanks when Cain X. indepth continues in just about five minutes first Washington post reporter incurred the wrath of Die Hard Kobe Bryant fans van she was punished by her own newspaper now the news in brief years Emily found it called search for the victims of the Calabasas helicopter crash it's finally over a Shorty say they retrieve the remains of all nine victims including Kobe Bryant.

"Next in-depth Charles Feldman, Mike. Simpson. Nothing else. You can't accuse the Lakers taking a timid approach to their off season after missing the playoffs for the six straight year. The Lakers are going forward in a major way mortgaging. A lot of for a player, whom they hope brings them a championship in the present. That's coming up at the bottom of the hour. Right now, though. The Trump administration pulled us out of the nuclear deal with Ron last year up until this point. There were few changes in the nuclear posture of the Iranians. Well, that's now changing Tehran announcing it's going to break the uranium stockpile limits. The regime had set with the world powers under the nuclear deal, James washes senior researcher at MIT's security studies program. He's been both Ron and North Korea to inspect their nuclear facilities. So I guess we could have seen this coming eventually, but still risky on their part. Yeah. I think that pretty much perfectly. It's unwelcome. It's not as a prize. And it pushes further into a dangerous situation with Iran. Not only did we the US calamity agreement. It's sanctioned around physically to strangle them economically, and it's sanctions any countries that were still in the agreements that were abiding. Lay on the point. Kick kick me at some point, it was going to have to if only domestic politics have to begin to push back since the agreements was undermined, but as was the case with North Korea, it seems like the administration is talking at of two sides of the same mouth. You've got the hardliners in the administration. They secretary of State John Bolton the national security adviser talking real tough. You've got the president who when day is talking the next as talking tough. So house, you're supposed to know what the position of the US actually is. That is a great question. Actually, one of the things is because you have different messages, tough messages, followed by soft messages in one of the ways we can get into trouble here. There may be some want regime change. They want a war with Iran. Others might be reluctant to do that. But it doesn't matter whether you tension if you get it by result, and you can get an accidental war, or war miscalculation. Actually, as the reasons, which is the other side, you know, doesn't know what to do in response to what you're doing. So maybe the president that's something where he's sick when he wants to be tough. But the runnings don't take it seriously because of other things. He said, so the Running's make a mistake in late, and then you're off to the races. So I think this, you know, it's already visit is and back and forth adds to the complication adds to the possibility of one side of the other making them. Stay in terms of what they're saying they're going to do how much closer does it get them to something. That's like weapons grade dangerous. Not not at all. Not at all close. And again, it's relate to civilian nuclear program is over top intelligence, official continued to testify, they do not have an active nuclear weapons program, but, you know, produce some extra heavy water. Can you make a nuclear weapon with water? No, you cannot. But you know what you worry about here is things. One is the beginning of Russian and you know that will play out over the next several months or so, then second that it will give you know, hardliners in this country say. Breaking the agreement, they're breaking the agreement, we should respond militarily. To it's the general slow drift towards an increased chance of war. Even if the two sides, don't want to end up there. James Walsum senior researcher MIT's securities studies program coming up next Rocky Mountain high..

But but don't they both get you to the same place in the same amount of time? Yeah. Very quickly. So why not just call it? All one thing. They're in the same galaxy. No, no, it's a totally different universe. Completely different than if you go into warp drive, right light. If you popped up in the other guy's place, and they're like, what the heck's going on different residuals. Yeah. That's true. Okay. So we're going to take a spaceship to Star Wars galaxies in Disneyland because they're getting ready to unveil this thing open to the public may thirty first Robert Niles editor and founder of theme park insider. So Robert the pictures Arauz they're there doing the celebrations already. This is going to be some of it at first not all of it. Yeah. It's going to be one of their two are going to be open on may thirty first falcon ride is going to be available. But they're rises the resistance ride. Which a lot of people are looking forward to won't open until later this year. So how expensive is going to be? And what did they anticipate? The lines are going to be like to use a nother person famous for space. I think the term billions and billions of dollars that they're spending on this sort of thing. But the lines are going to be incredible. Now, what does he's doing requiring people to make reservations? Visit any time between may thirty first and June twenty third you won't be able to just walk up to the land to get in until after that. They haven't told us yet win. The reservations are going to be open or how are we going to do that? But just that you're going to have to do it at some point Star Wars Lando included in your price of your Disneyland theme park ticket, correct? Okay. The reservations, do you think those are always going to be a thing because part of the money and falcon right is they they let him groups and you get to walk around. And then somebody you apparently go in the cockpit and flight everything around all the rest of you, wait for your turn. But I mean, you could be waiting and there were six hundred people's on that big. Yeah. I think this is just going to be reservations. So that people who aren't going to be able to get into the land won't come in overcrowd the rest of the park. You're still obviously going to have to wait in line. If you wanna do the millennium falcon wide or wait to get your blue milk, or you're you're into the casino for which is Disneyland's I bar. So if you want to get out of blue mil-, just go to my refrigerator. The, but you know, the these theme parks, right? They're always trying to one up the other. So on a scale of like one two thousand where does this one go? We're definitely at about nine ninety eight at this point. We're really pushing the limit at this stage. Harry Potter was a huge thing for universal. And then they've got Nintendo coming up in a couple of years here too. So this is just a battle that keeps going and going between Disney and universal how immersive is it going to be because you go to all the other lands and Disneyland and you, oh, that's fun. Look at the funny building and Harry Potter world over universal kind of. Did you feel more like you're at Hogwarts or whatever it is? But they're going to the next level with this one, right? Yeah. Absolutely Disney did a really good job of creating a perimeter around this land. So you're not going to be able to see much outside of it. The way you could say in fantasy land or adventure land or some other place in the park. It's really going to feel like you're on your own soul. Self-contained university inside galaxy.

I think the whole drones thing has moved from being a few years ago. So we could have called in emerging threat into an active ongoing threat. And from what I was told these weren't hobby. Drones something that you buy on Amazon, they were more maybe industrial sized larger pieces more dangerous pieces of equipment and people ask. Well, what what exactly is the danger colliding with a drone potentially very dangerous. It depends on two things. Mostly the speed of the airplane and the weight of the drought now a small, you know, buy at the store. Hobby drown isn't gonna cause too much damage. It's very very unlikely to cause an airplane actually crash, but still if it were to strike an engine or some other critical part of the of the aircraft. It could cause potentially billions of dollars damage. This is just a small drug. We're talking about. Do you think the action taken at the airport in London was too extreme?

We can do I one that is a proponent of enacting a whole new wraps of legislation and the rules and regulations, and you know, rent tape, ultimately it comes down to awareness. I think the vast majority of people who fly at drill close to an airplane aren't doing it on purpose to cause mayhem they're doing it through carelessness negligence because they don't understand how much of an threat this can be. And so really it comes down to it comes down to generating sense of awareness and people policing themselves at using common sense and not doing this or.

"You're listening to KNX in-depth long. Charles feldman. Mike simpson. Congressman Adam Schiff will be in studio with us. He's got a critical review for our President Trump just handled into those attempted mail bombing saying the president never takes responsibility for anything. There is a national manhunt underway for this. Very busy would be male bomber. What's the profile of someone willing to targets? A couple of former presidents several other high profile politicians John pistol served as former deputy director of the FBI from two thousand four to two thousand ten both Bush and Obama administrations now president of Anderson university in Indiana. So what are the possibilities here where where do you start to look? Yes. There's a number of possibilities. And it's largely informed by the forensic evidence that has been collected by the joint task forces looking at not only, obviously the packages themselves devices themselves, but are there for example, fingerprints latent fingerprints DNA through hairs or fibers that might be either inside the packages or on the outside on stamps, or labels or things like that. So that's all part of what they are looking at to try to inform what they call the rich picture of intelligence and evidence, so they take that forensic evidence. And then at the same time or looking at the the information that perhaps is an existing databases about prior threats to any of these individuals. Is there somebody out there who is known has known capabilities of of making these seems like rudimentary improvised explosive devices. And and and trying to combine those two so the investigation progresses as looking at where the packages were mailed from sounds like maybe from Florida, and then how delivered to one courier taking all that they built that picture than as you say of of the profile of this individual or group of individuals. But one of the keys is trying to determine whether we've seen the last of the devices, these mail bomb packages, or there's others out there that are still in transit or is the bomber taking a break for for a day a week a month similar to what the Yuna bomber back from decades ago did where it took seventeen years before he thought found John. This sounds much much more complicated than it is on CSI. Well, it's is real world. Sixty minutes or even in two appeal. Yeah. So yeah, it's it's a challenge, but you've got leading world's experts working on us. So that's the good news. What does it say to you that that none of these bombs went off a couple of things either that the triggering device whatever that was. And that's obviously hasn't been published. Was such that it was not like a hair trigger that was easily detonated. So just the handling of it. Or there wasn't some type of calibration device in there that they caused it to set off because of rough handling or whatever that might be is. So that's one thing. The other part is what was the recipe if you will there's the Anarchist's cookbook, which some some wannabe bombers have used to try to create improvised explosive devices so gets both to the person. And then what they are trying to accomplish were they actually trying to kill people. Or was it more of a threat or a scare to say, look, I can do this. Or is it simply a mentally unbalanced person who is seeking attention. And and just wanting to be in the news twenty four seven like this and either hopes to be caught. So they get all that notoriety. Or just goes underground. We'd never hear anything about it. But. I have a full confidence that this person or persons will be caught in in the near future. John pistol served as a former deputy director of the FBI now, president Anderson university in Indiana where with at least one southern California congress member in the cross hairs of would-be bomber. We will talk security and politics with democratic congressman Adam Schiff in about six minutes.
