"The Corona virus. Still, you know that the vaccine vaccine still months off, we find a lover. A number of companies air rushing to test. What I got explain this right? It could be the next best thing, And that is Drugs or a drug that deliver anybody's to fight the virus. Wider it right away. Without having to train the immune system to to make them, um Antibodies are Proteins. The body makes When an infection occurs because I understand it, they attached to a virus and help it to be eliminated. Now the vaccines and I've learned this from Dr Haldeman and others. The vaccines work by tricking the body into thinking there's an infection, so it makes antibodies and remembers how to do that. In case that the real bug turns up All right. But that could take a month or two after a vaccination, or, you know an infection for most of the effective anti bodies deformed. So the experimental drugs Shortcut the process by giving Concentrated versions of specific ones that have worked best against the Corona virus in lab in animal tests. Okay? Hopefully, I'm not complicating this. Um I hope you get it. Let me quote Dr Myron Cohen. Who was a North Carolina virologist. Ah, vaccine takes time to work, divorce the development of antibodies, But when you given anybody, you get immediate protection. If we can generate them in large contra take concentrations in big vats. In an antibody factory. We can bypass the immune system. End quote. Now these drugs are believed to last for a month or more. And could give quick, temporary immunity. The people At the high risk of infection. Such as health workers, housemates of somebody who ask over 19 if they proved to be effective. Even a vaccine, even if that vaccine doesn't materialize, Um as we think it's going to the drugs might eventually be considered for wider use, perhaps for teachers and other groups of people. Who are you know, mixing with others all the time. There. Also being tested his treatments. To help the immune system and prevent severe symptoms or death. Quoting the doctor. Another doctor again. This is Dr Marshall Lion. I'm infectious disease disease specialist from Emory University, Atlanta, the hope there is to target people who are in the first week of their illness. And that we can treat him with the antibody and prevent them from getting sick. Hide it to make sense. Having such a tool would be a really monumental thing in our fight against Colvin, 19. Now. They say. Vaccines. Often by practically every medical circle are seen as the key to controlling the virus. Which is confirmed to have infected more than 20 million people worldwide. And kill just under a 1,000,000 so far 738,000 Several companies are racing to develop the vaccines. You know this because I tell you all the time and the results of the large final test need, you know to be evaluated. Ah, that's still months away. Not like the Russians, you know, like two minutes away. The anybody drugs are promising. And in contrast, Could be available very, very soon. This is, according to Dr Janet Woodcock. Dr. Woodcock is a US Food and administration official who is leading government efforts to speed up Cove in 19 You know on all the research that goes into it, not speed up the disease. But the therapies and key studies are underway and some answers could be with us by the end of summer, now one company And you know when it's a big one, Eli Lilly Has already started manufacturing about that. It's anybody drug very quietly. This is probably the first time you've heard this. It's a bit of information that leaked out this morning and they are betting the studies now underway will give positive results. So they're already making it. Vote. Our goal is to get something out there as soon as possible and have hundreds of thousands of doses ready by full. And that's the chief scientific officer and Lily. Dr Daniel Score, Bronski. Now there's another company. That has developed an anti drug cocktail. It was used against Ebola. And that's Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. They're not testing one for Corona virus, and the success with their Ebola program gave them the confidence that they can potentially do this again. I mean, they pulled off a great one during that whole of all the thing. Regeneron's drug use is to antibodies to enhance the drug, which will work even if the virus evolves to invade to evade action by one of the drugs. Lily is testing Two single antibody drugs. One with a Canadian company and another with a Chinese company. And in July, the Chinese company said no safety concerns had emerged in 40 healthy people who drive it. Larger studies air currently underway. This is, um, a Chinese study that was backed by the Canadian company, So I think there's a level of Trustworthy. That's there that we typically wouldn't get from anything coming out of China. Others working on anybody. Drugs include company's called Amgen, an adaptive biotechnologies. There's a Singapore biotech company called Tai Chin. They're also testing an antibody drug, not a vaccine, but an antibody drug very similar to the products in development for Zika virus and yellow fever. And I don't want to stray too far off the track here, but Dr Fauci. Says he is consciously optimistic about these drugs. But Dr Fauci says, I've seen the data. It's good stuff, and I'm heartened by the experience that we had with Ebola. When other drugs approved when the drugs proved to be effective now, what could go wrong? Let me talk about that for a moment. The antibodies might not reach all places in the body where they need to act such as deep in the lungs. Oh, that's what I want to hear, because that's where my problem is. All the antibody drugs are given through Ivy. And they have to make their way through the bloodstream to wherever they're needed. This is like the stem cell stuff that I go through in Arizona that I'm going to go through again on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Ah, the blood that they take out of me. And do a bunch of stuff too. And then Reintroduced to me has to travel through the whole freakin ray Appleton body before they can even look at this. You know through one eye and go, OK, I think we did okay. I mean that that's basically it. This is ah, It's not a curative thing. It just relieved me of some of the symptoms that go along with the disease. But I certainly understand this. How There are certain areas that can remain untouched by whatever it is. You're introducing back into the body. Ah, where a particular disease may be hiding. You follow me. Also in what could go wrong, the virus might mutate to avoid the antibody. Oh, That's the reason why it Regeneron is testing a to anybody. Combo. That binds to the virus in different places, they'll prevent its escape. Now. Lily. Has struck out with has struck with one Of the everybody's because the manufacturing capacity would be essentially cutting. Half of they had to make two. So they're betting the bank on one You will have less doses available. If a single anybody works weaken tweet twice as many people So say the.

The First Dog With COVID-19 Has Died, And There's A Lot We Still Don't Know

That's Natasha daily a wildlife reporter with National Geographic. Buddy was a German shepherd who Natasha says by his family's account was a very, very good boy. He loved running through sprinklers, Keitel's love like running and diving right into the lake. His family loved address them up for Halloween, is also photos of him in a bunny costume and you know he's just it looks like he's just grinning at the camera and so when buddies started getting sick this spring, just before his seventh birthday, his family, Robert Allison Mahoney and their daughter Juliana. While, they were worried I mean he'd be completely healthy, and then all of a sudden in the sprain he. started. Struggling to breathe and the first thing. I thought was he has the virus. Meaning the corona virus in the reason they thought that. They had also been sick. So specifically, Robert Mahoney, the husband had tested positive Alison Mahoney. Robert's wife had not been tested, but she was showing symptoms. So she had it to. The daughter Juliana who's thirteen tested negative. But when it came to getting buddy attest, that was a lot harder. But he's regular vet wasn't seeing patients. The Vet significantly said, there's no, he has like just you know there's no way and he prescribed the antibiotics over the phone. Another vets gave buddy ultrasound and x rays. But also didn't think he could have the krona virus remember no dog had yet tested positive in the US. And many vets didn't have the tests for animals anyway. But one day. Robert, Mahoney sister saw facebook post about a vet where they lived on. Staten. Island that had just gotten some test kits. Robert. was like great like let me call right now. Get down there, make an appointment, and so he was able to make an appointment for ten PM on a Friday. So it was a very strange time, but it was the clinic was really busy, and so it was the the first law they had available. That was Friday. May Fifteenth a full month after he started showing symptoms a few days later, but he finally got test that revealed. He was positive. This was a huge deal. Buddy was the first dog in the US known to have the virus and the USDA announced the news in a press release on June second. Buddy wasn't named in that press release. The government only identified his breed. In fact, we only know the details of his story because of Natasha's reporting. The USDA said in. June, that quote the dog is expected to make a full recovery. But Buddy didn't get better. He got more and more sick in June. It. All came to a head one weekend in July. And a warning that the details coming up are pretty tough to hear. So Allison. Came downstairs the morning of July eleventh and found buddy in the kitchen in a pool of modeled flood He was throwing up blood. It was coming from his nose. It was just horrific and devastating for the family, and at that point, they brought him into the vet and the decision was made to euthanize him which was obviously really really difficult on top of two and a half months of stress and confusion that the family had already been through thirteen dogs and eleven cats have tested positive in the US for cove nineteen according to public. Records and while those numbers sound small, they raise big questions about how virus can affect people and their pets. Today's episode. Natasha. Daily on why. Some of those questions are still so hard to answer. Allison Mooney said to me that you tell someone that your dog tested positive for Cova. Did they'd look at you like you had ten heads. You know there's no rubric for navigating covert in your pet. I'm Emily Quang and you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. First off the current CDC guidance that there is no evidence that pets can transmit the coronavirus to humans, and that's partially why testing for animals isn't more widespread. We do need to say to that test for animals are different than the test used to detect the virus in humans. All animal tests are processed in different labs are processed in veterinary labs. Not, there's no overlap between human testing and animal testing. So. While some of the mechanics of the tests may be the same. It's not at all taking resources away from humans. But because a covid positive animal isn't seen as a danger to humans, there's been very little scientific study of how the virus can affect those pets or even how it can interact with other diseases are pets may have. That's where we're going to pick up buddy story with an Tasha daily. Yes. So new blood work was taken on July tenth the day before a buddy died, and it was on July eleventh when the Mahoney's brought buddy in. To essentially be euthanized that they found the results of that blood work on and the blood work indicated that he very very likely had lymphoma, which is kind of cancer, right? Yes. Lymphoma is a type of cancer So I I asked a couple of veterinarians who were not involved in buddies case at all to review his full records and they said that, yes, every single one of the symptoms he had could be explained by lymphoma, you know A. A big open question is deity SARS Yovany to present clinically in buddies body, and what that means is did the virus cause any symptoms? For example, the trouble breathing was, and so I think it's it's tough and we'll never have an answer to this was every single. One of his symptoms are the lymph, Oma? Or was some of it, the COVID and the breakdown of fat isn't something that we have an answer to, and you also pose the question. Will. We won't know whether the cancer made them more susceptible to contracting the coronavirus exactly, and that's sort of a big takeaway from his case You know our dogs or cats with underlying conditions like cancer as it turns out. More likely to contract the virus because we know humans are humans It's thought that humans that have suppressed immune systems maybe more likely to contract the virus, but not only that maybe the virus may be more likely to present in ways that are more significant in their bodies if if they're already immuno-compromised. So the same question remains for animals and we just have so little data to investigate it.
Montreal's Flagship Apple Store to Close Temporarily
"Mac Daily News sites report from Canada's CTV. That says Montreal's flagship Apple Store is reclosing. Thanks to corona virus according to the peace and apple customer in Montreal dropped off her macbook last Thursday for repairs she was told she'd be able to get it back repaired somewhere between twenty four hours and ten days later. The next day though the store contacted her saying, pick it up by five PM Friday or go without it for who knows how long. I'm guessing she contacted C. T. V. because they contacted apple. While, the company would not say whether there were covert nineteen cases tied to the store. It did say the current covid nineteen conditions and some of the communities we serve we are temporarily closing stores in these areas. Apple continued. Saying words, it must have memorized by now we take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and we look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible.

So Tino, we're going to start with you how you feeling I am tired all the time like I can't complain really too much everything is. Fine but I'm very tired. Okay. Yeah. Short and sweet the TASHA. Who would be a podcast in itself I told you I. Felt. New podcast. How feeling? Is. What. I am I'm having actually every human emotion you can have, and I'm having an all at the same downtime. I'm angry, sad, scared frustrated hopeful fired up every motion human emotion. You can have I'm having and this moment of few weeks ago I myself actually tested positive for covert Nineteen Latasha. It. was the most nerve wrecking name Sweetie. It so I'm here for you sweetie. Oh you understand. Thank you so much and I'm so glad that you are will I had a mild case of but I think more than anything. It's the worry because you don't know how it's going to respond to Matty and then I'm worried about people being around me and being around my family.

There are now five million confirmed covid nineteen cases in this country, and the number of those infected has doubled since the end of June and then we still have to mention. Joe Biden's comments last. Thursday during a joint. National Association of Black Journalists and a BJ and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists which was an h j of what he said. What you all know. But most people don't know unlike the African American community with notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community.

The Children Of Smithfield
"In. March of Twenty Twenty might amend is was living in Lincoln, Nebraska she was working as an administrator at a public school. And then she got a call from her mom it was about their upcoming vacation she called in and asked me to call in and cancel the flights and see what their options were and I. think that's when it kind of hit me that corona virus was in Nebraska they had planned to visit family in Mexico but they decided with the virus it was a bad idea for her mom to travel. Might as mom had recently lost a kidney to cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy again, this time for lung cancer. It's been about a year and a half since she's been on last the latest treatment and that one seems to work while the spock's in her lung they're not necessarily getting bigger and they're slowly shrinking. But the doctor did say about it's it's a long process slow process and then the family made a decision, my parents both have jobs at a meat packing plant in Nebraska because their mom could be exposed to the corona virus at work they decided that mom should not go back to work. I think I just always worry. About not having her. Her Dad. He returned to the plant for financial reasons but might have was worried if her dad brought the virus home, it could be deadly for her mom. And I started asking him like you know what kind of protection are they giving you? Do you have face masks? He said they're giving us masks and I said, what does the mass look? He said it's like the beard net, but it's a full faced one and so then that's as like that's not gonNA protect you. You're still breathing in air through those holes like that does nothing. For my this was the first red flag and then on April sixteenth the meat packing plant where he worked a place called Smithfield confirmed its first case of Covid nineteen. That's when. My Dad started to. Kind of get scared to get I is kind of like it's not it's not here yet. And so when we heard about those first cases. It was very like it's here. It's real. From footer media, it's leading USA I Medina Hoarser and today the children of Smithfield speak. Throughout the early days of the covid nineteen pandemic, there was a lot of concern about the nations food supply specifically, the meat industry's supply chain. But last spring is cases of the virus surged in meatpacking plants across the country. It became clear that conditions in these plans were often unsafe. And that many of these now deemed is central workers worked speaking up because of their status or fear of retaliation around a fourth of all meatpacking workers are undocumented. and. So instead now it's the adult children and other family members of these meatpacking workers who have started to band together to advocate for their relatives. Might menaces parents work at a plant owned by Smithfield that's one of the largest meatpacking companies in the world. In April she joined with other quote children of Smithfield in the town of Crete Nebraska to begin demanding safer working conditions for their parents and relatives. reporters. Marianne Andrey and Esther. Honi have been reporting and following, Midas? Story Esther. Is going to pick up the story now. Myra is a woman in her late twenties with an athletic build an intense Brown eyes. And she's warm but she wouldn't say she's the social one in her family. I definitely consider myself as shy this whole time we've been in quarantine. I've been okay because I enjoy my time alone at home she says it's her dodd that's always been the extrovert he doesn't like to be quite. he's always talking, but he wants to jump into every conversation super affectionate and he's always like grabbing us and hugging and kissing those in like messing up our hair like that's his thing he wants to. Miss a bar hair and kisses at the same time in her family says always more of the caretaker. She has two younger brothers and she's always looked out for them when my second brother was born. I was babysitting him all summer and so he was a six month old than I was fifteen. I was the one in charge of taking care of him and I think a lot of. My character was built from being the oldest sibling just around the House I. Always was told like you have to be the example for your brothers kind of pave the way as a family always spent a lot of time together partially because they moved around a lot when she was little Mara's parents used to work as migrant farm workers. I was born in Washington stay in my parents picked fruits and other crops like potatoes we would move between Washington state and Idaho back and forth she was in third grade her parents emigrated from Mexico and later became US citizens heard they could get better and more stable work in Nebraska in meatpacking. It we need to move around anymore. But as a little kid, she was nervous about leaving her school where there are lots of other bilingual students. I just remembered in Washington stay they taught me in Spanish and English half day English half-day Spanish and so here I remember like my biggest fear I wasn't sure if I knew English said, do I really know English? Obviously I knew English but it was just not the atmosphere I was used to
"covid" Discussed on COVID-19: What You Need to Know
"For his. You don't need to get the test. The first maximum. Okay. The difference between the types of antibody tests available. What's the different? Okay so right now? There's a what we call serology tests for. Antibody that has not for current event infection. That's past infection now. There are a lot of tests out there on the market. The FDA has cautioned repeatedly. We don't yet know how accurate they are. And most recently TJ, the FBI is warning. People of fakes of scams offering to do these tests collecting your personal information, and then putting you at risk for identity theft so right now, ask your healthcare provider. If you're interested or think you had co Vid, and they are the safest and best place to do an antibody. Next question here. We've been hearing about a second wave of infections. How do we know if we're internet? We don't because remember that's going to be a retrospective. Diagnosis that we make one. It's in our rear view mirror. We've heard Dr Anthony FAUCI. Say that it's premature to talk about a second wave because we're not out of the first wave yet, but other countries and other parts of the world are looking at this because they're saying that. When we expect a second wave ordeal with one, we have to be able to respond and contain it. Basically, epidemiologists are saying that it could either be one monster, second wave, a slow, burn, or little ups and downs. We don't know how this virus is going to affect us here in the US or worldwide yet it's too new. Men Or women disproportionately affected by overnight and big time. We saw this data early out of China us. CDC Data in March confirmed it at every age group men face almost twice the risk of death. We don't totally understand why but TJ. You're at more risk of dying of Cova than I am, but here's what I want to focus on in the final thoughts. TJ This Week. I want the theme to be all about the principles of medical bioethics so every day. We're going to tackle one of them today. It's about justice About fairness at the. Bedside whether you're talking about one on one or whether you're talking about on a population level, a lot of these issues coming into play right now amidst the pandemic, so we're really talking about potentially how to allocate scarce resources and healthcare and treatments and testing to some disadvantaged populations in the setting of covid like the homeless to pregnant women. School closings and how that may affect children who need to eat at school, complicated issue and again It's really bringing these principles to light so today think justice when you think of Covid. Always and that's our program for today on Tj Hall. Thanks for listening..
"covid" Discussed on COVID-19: What You Need to Know
"Dog Did here with us, going to be answering your questions about nineteen, so let's get at question one any data that shows certain blood types, reacting better or worse to Kobe, nineteen affection, so they're actually have been a couple of published reports that came out of China one early on just based on observation TJ that actually people with type, a blood were more likely to become infected and seriously ill with Covid, nineteen people with type O blood, less likely to be infected. It may be associated also with the severity of disease. Now here's the take home. You've heard me say this before. Don't do a test in medicine unless you know what you're. You're going to do with the results of that test. We can't change our blood type right so you have to ask the question. How might we use this information? This part of genetic testing that's being done on blood of Cova patients, and it's been discovered that these genes that code for the type of our blood. The surface blood type is actually really closely located to the immune function response genes, so there may be some connection there. It needs ongoing study, but right now it is just an observation. Okay? Another question here never would have really thought about this hand sanitizer. If you leave it in, your hot car will become less effective. According to experts, the answer is no because it needs to reach a temperature of six hundred to seven hundred degrees Fahrenheit to become combustible, so we're hoping that a car even on the hottest day. In Arizona's not reaching that temperature. Of course, it's better to leave. These alcohol based hand sanitizers in cool dry environments, but if you're out, and it's in your car for an hour short period of time, all indications are that it will still be effective. There was a lot we talked about. Here's the next question question. Three is a lot of concern about pets. So what is the latest? We have now cove in nineteen transmission and our pets, so many people concern about their canine and feline home. Friends and relatives, there is no significant increase in the documented cases of house pets right now in the US, having more confirmed diagnoses of Covid nineteen. The thinking is that the pets are getting it from us, not giving it to us, so that's important, and we also need to realize and remember that this strain of Corona virus. This strain is different, and the thinking is that it originated in bats jumped to an intermediate host animal, and then went to humans, but Of Corona. Effect Dogs Affect Cats, so we shouldn't be that surprised when we see this detected and pets. Okay One last one here the age. What is the youngest age that children should wear masks according to the CDC, not on children under the age of two. However when you talk about toddlers and over the age of two, this is something that's going to require a lot of effort and work on the part of parents require practice. They're going to need to be role. Models lead by example. Put It on the dolls. Put on the toys and the storybook characters and they're definitely going to need encouragement especially to explain it and Fremont. Fremont properly that this is for the protection of other people. It's about we not me, and they're never too young to start learning, and these things are going to be around for a while. We're going to be a mask society for quite awhile. It looks that way all right Doug Ashton. Thank you as always. You can submit your questions Dr Ashton on our instagram at Dr J. Ashton. We turn out to some Lauren News. We're getting out of the world of Sports Novak Djokovic the men's world number. One tennis player has now tested positive for covid nineteen. This news comes just a week after new. York Governor Andrew Cuomo gave the all clear for the US Open to be held in New York joining us now, US chief executive of professional tennis and US Open. Tournament Director Stacey Allaster. Thank you so much for being here. And what is your reaction? The number one in the world has now tested positive. Jerry I must say it's with a heavy heart that we learned the news that Novak and yesterday. Other athletes involved in the Andrea tour. We certainly watched over the last ten days or so with concern as to how they were returning to play. And I think really when it does for all of us today at the USCCA validates. The months of work that we put into the development. Of our plan. That is a deep with medical experts and rigor about how how we go about. Returning to work, you know. On the athletes work as tennis, COURT AND The plan as approved by Governor Cuomo of built by leading. Medical Doctors. It's all about mitigating risk and. Only way to do this is with a clear health and safety plan. Do you have to proceed this year? Given where we are. Y Do you have to put the term on only WANNA. Get back to playing, but just given where we are, and also the question is. Is this about money? What is the financial impact? If you do not put on the US Open this year? We sorta embarked upon the journey with three fundamental principles, the first one was can we stage the US Open and our Western and southern open up the event that usually is played in Cincinnati in a centralized model like the other leagues are considering and do it in a way. That mitigates risk. And provides this healthy and safe environment for all that has been the lens all the way through eight nine ten different models a once. We sort of established that plan then was the second one is in the best interest of tennis and look. We could be subjective. Our Lens was. Fans. Really. WanNa come. The athletes to come back. It's part of our society. It is an industry is a good for the tennis economy. A lot of people went back to work on Wednesday when we announced and ultimately It's a good opportunity for us. To be able to promote the sport on the basis TJ that. It's safe until what we know. Today we have that confidence and at the end of the day. We may did make a decision at the end of the principal. Is it financially viable and? Their significant impact on US as nationals for governing body. It's still is financially viable not on a sustainable basis to proceed with the US Open without fans on site, but at the moment right now where we are. Management of the virus in. New York and the surrounding states were the everyone has under control at the lowest state, and we feel very confident with the plan as supported by the. Governor and and our medical advisers that we can proceed well Stacey Allaster, a lot of sports fans, Tennessee fans hope you can pull this off so good luck to you want to say congratulations to you as well tournament director, the first woman to be tournament director of the US Open in. It's one hundred and forty year history congratulations to you on that and good luck. Thank you Jay.

"covid" Discussed on COVID-19: What You Need to Know
"Double lung transplant in these cove time. Yeah, really interesting and inspiring in terms of transplant surgery medicine, and for this country Northwestern University announced that they did the first double lung transplant in a young woman in her twenty s four severe Kobe nineteen. This patient had been supported on that machine called Echo to help oxygenated her blood Her team felt. Felt that there were zero chances for her to recover enough to be removed off the ventilator and this machine and she underwent a double lung transplant in the last day and We have to remember double lung transplants, not that common there about less than three thousand in the country every year, usually for conditions like pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis or COPD it's a big operation. Obviously, people will need to be on immune suppressant medication for life They did retest this patient to. To make sure she was no longer actively testing positive for Covid, before they went forward with the transplant, but obviously not for everyone, but some really inspiring news, at least in the world of medicine for Severe Cova Name I was taken aback listening to the surgeon talk about the condition of long saying they were the worst he had ever seen. It really was a shocking image just to show the damage to the entire long field, and the potential for how devastating and powerful. Powerful this virus can be again in a woman in her twenties, so I've found it some bright spot of inspiring right, it should serve as a warning, and yet at the same time it's an inspiration me that we have this technology available to us and the message behind the message, just quickly organ donation desperately desperately needed in this country, so sign up to be an organ donor. You can save multiple wives amazing all right next question. Should I consider wearing protective eyewear in public? Again. We've started to talk about this. There haven't been any official guidelines or recommendations, but what has primed the pump for this is a Meta analysis or systematic review that appeared in Lancet, talked about it last week, where they looked at the the efficacy of distance, face masks and I protection, and they found that in terms of reducing the spread of Covid nineteen people who were some kind of I protection, lowered their risk from sixteen percent to six percent. So we're talking about face, shield, regular eyeglasses or some kind of I goggles again. Again, they said the certainty of this evidence was low, but it would not surprise me that we're going to be hearing more about this in the future. Okay, next question, it is nearly summer. Ken Covid Nineteen be transmitted via insects like mosquitoes or ticks. Good news at this point is. There's no evidence that this is a tick borne virus something like Zico West Nile Malaria Chicken Gunja all known to be transmitted by mosquitoes, not covid nineteen so worried about those other things, but not mosquitoes and covert night. We'll take it one. The next question is spraying the tennis balls with disinfectant necessary after each use, or will the sunlight be enough to kill the germs? Great question and I would like to be playing more tennis myself this summer. we don't know obviously this has informally been studied. There's a good likelihood that UV light heat sunlight will kill almost anything on the tennis balls. There's a in spring them off after you're finished. We heard Dr Deborah burks. Recommend marking the balls with your initials, so you're only touching your ball. I've been in contact with the head tennis pro at the Vintage Club in Indian Wells and he's saying that for the most part just the coaches are handling the tennis balls to try to reduce contact, so do the best you can, but get out there and get some exercise and wash your hands after exactly. Right, Dr Jen thank you so much, and you can submit questions to Dr Jen on her instagram at Dr. J. Ashton well as we slowly venture back into the world after months of stay at home orders, people are exploring new ways to just get away, and as we all continued to conquer Cova summer travel probably will look a lot different this year so here to tell us more is the CEO of travel company Virgo, Geoff Hurst and Jeff thanks so much for being with us. We all navigate this new normal. Tell us what trends you're seeing and how people are choosing to travel now. Absolutely. Thank you for having me excited to be here. So the first saying people are starting to travel again as soon as regulations and restrictions of eased, there's been a lot of pent up. Demand and families are enthusiastic to go save their summer, and what we're seeing is a few different trends from prior summer to this summer. First of all people are looking closer and traveled in their home so a lot more emphasis on drive to typically within. Within two, hundred fifty miles of the city at the expense of longer haul flights, and so fewer people are going to the islands. Fewer people are going to Europe, and as they explore this drive to travel. We're also seeing slightly longer trips. We think some of this is because people are getting more comfortable with work from, and they might be willing to extend a weekend or a week long trip to do a little bit of work over video. Video and be able to stay engaged in their profession, and a lot of it is also that many people like my family had to cancel their spring. Break them, so you're looking to make up for some last time that you've had over the quarantine period, and then finally we're seeing a lot more emphasis on whole homes, and so virgo has been a specialist and hall homes for almost twenty five years and people are really craving to be in. In a home, just not their hub and having a pool or private beach access, or getting to the mountains, and getting away and enjoying some space, but being together with family that may have been separated from. That's right. Change of scenery can do can do us all some good now. There are still people out there. Of course who are hesitant to travel during these times. What is being done to ease their concerns and make them feel safer. Yeah. Every situation is unique, and we encourage people to make their own decisions on what's in the best interest of their safety. What Virgo has done on this topic. We published guidelines that are compilation of recommendations from world. Health Organization CDC CRYSTAL International Standards To help our homeowners and property managers know what the new set of expectations are in general vacation home, ownership and Reynolds have been around for decades, and there's already an always been a high quality of care, so we're collecting this information from homeowners and we're making..
"covid" Discussed on COVID-19: What You Need to Know
"There's not a person in America who hasn't been impacted in some way by the coronavirus pandemic, but it every community. There are pockets of people who are suiting up every day. Day last. Seventy stretch. These are America's essential workers. The people who are keeping our world moving to drop off produce for one of our Tennessee, and now in a new podcast from ABC News. You're going to hear from them in their own words could. There's always the risk that could bring this to my kids or my husband or my parents. This is the essentials inside the curve. Listen on Apple podcasts or your favorite podcast, APP! Dr John is back with a look at some of your new questions that have been coming in Dr Jen. Of course, never a shortage of medicines I one. How safe is it to consume food prepared by friends and neighbors? Okay, well first of all very limited hard science on this. It's not like this has been formally evaluated in a lab setting. We do need to remember. This is not the major route of transmission of covid, nineteen or this novel strain of Corona Virus. That would be respiratory. STOMACH ACID does kill a lot of pathogens, but we also have to remember that there. Pathogens that are transmitted via food borne illnesses. Something we see every year. I will qualify you know when I share personal. It's always specify and identified as such I. Personally am not that worried about getting covert nineteen from food. That's good to know all right next question. How common are false negatives for Covid? Nineteen testing? Oh. What a question! This is so important so first of all it really deals with concept called sensitivity of a test sensitivity refers to how often that given test is positive. Positive in the setting of someone actually having that disease now when you talk about false positives and false negatives, the two important concepts with this not just cove nineteen, but any test is. How accurate is the test? Every test has their own accuracy. It's like their fingerprint, and how common covid nineteen is in your area that will affect, believe it or not. The false negative rate in terms of some published studies, some tests out there right now can have a false negative for covid nineteen, as high as fifteen percent. Maybe even more were still collecting those numbers, so bottom line is. Is In medicine, you rarely hang your hat on one given test result, it's used in constellation with other things. Wow, next question with more non essential business reopening. What precaution should employees take when returning home from work again? We really need to put this into perspective. Yes, Cova nineteen is top of mind for everyone right now, but think of you know six months ago, it was influenza before then also norovirus the virus. There are a lot of pathogens that people in any kind of work can be exposed to so I think some commonsense precautions. The second you walk into your home. Home and wash your hands and wash them well, then people will do. They feel comfortable with generally taking off your work clothes changing into other close again. You'RE NOT GONNA. See official guidance or guidelines on this, but this is common sense, and people should do what they feel comfortable with all right, and then the next question. If you have to commute for work, is it safer to use public transportation or to use a ridesharing service? Lift or Uber Tough question and people may not love this answer, but it depends right.

Thank you and you can submit questions to. to Dr Jen on her instagram at Dr J. Ashton well as protest around the world continue on, so does the need for safe protesting amid this pandemic here to talk about how to protest as safely as possible is infectious disease physician Dr Cassandra Pierre Dr. thanks so much for being with us and just give us a sense of what your thoughts are I on the significance of these protests and the risks. They present in these times. Absolutely the. Protests are profoundly. The protesters are calling for an end to systemic racism and. There is a lot of justified frustration and disbelief in the ongoing cycles of oppression and violence in marginalized communities, especially black communities. There is compelling need to be present and be visible. As steadfast against police brutality, not just in black communities, but in society is hall. We've seen images of people across generations, races and MRIs participating in these protests and It is incredibly important method of advocating for in enacting social change. However, there is no doubt that there is real risk. Standing shoulder to shoulder with WHO are. Singing talking in a meeting, other forms of respiratory droplets, even if masked is a fortunately very efficient way of transmitting nineteen from person to person. And it's especially of concern in communities of Color who've already been ravaged by COVID. Nineteen related infections and debts, as well as disproportionately being impacted of course by police brutality, and so medical professionals and public health authorities have been largely supportive of these protests, but also very concerned about what it could mean in a few weeks in terms of raising rates of covid nineteen communities where there have been protests, so I think it's very important at this point to just get the message out to continue to reiterate that could nineteen percents risk for stabilizing communities of color.

"covid" Discussed on COVID-19: What You Need to Know
"Protesters have been urged to get a corona virus test I'm Aaron Katersky now over Amy Robot thank you Erin joining me. Now is ABC News Chief Medical correspondent. Dr Jen Ashton as always in Dr Jump from the beginning of this pandemic. It seems that we've been hearing about headlines about this drug. We heard it from president trump even about hydroxy chloroquine will yesterday big news that rocked the medical world, so we've got two of the most prestigious peer. Peer reviewed medical journals in the world, issuing retractions retractions on studies by the same author. One of them had to do with the effect of hydroxy core when intriguing covid nineteen patients tell us what we know, amy, this was major news in the medical world yesterday, and really there are two angles to it. There's the literature angle, and then there's the drug hall, so if you look at this journal first of all for some background, Lancet founded. Founded in eighteen, twenty three. It is one of the most prestigious journals we have worldwide looking back on May. Twenty second. They published a big multinational study on Kovic nineteen patients who were treated with chloroquine and hydroxy chloroquine. The findings of that study were that the drug really had no benefit in treating these patients and actually was associated with an increased risk of death, particularly due to a regular heartbeats June third. The story continues the Lancet raised. Raised some concerns. They issued what they call an expression of concern about the methodology and the data collection. They asked the study's author to provide more information. When the author was not able to really do that to their satisfaction yesterday, the New England Journal issued a full retraction of the study followed. The Lancet did followed by the New England Journal of Medicine for the same author. This is exactly how the peer. Review Medical literature process should work. The Lancet overseeing the authors findings. So that's why when we say this is not yet peer reviewed. It has so much I've heard you say that so many times as a qualification. You have any information we're getting. How unusual is something like this? And should we be distrustful? Of some of these medical findings that we hear about its usual, but it has happened before, and I think the points the people need to remember. They need to understand how the medical literature process worked. It is based on intense scientific integrity. The publications all of them use ethical standards very similar to the ones we use in journalism. There is a very strict and rigorous peer review process that's involved before something is published even online. The methodology has to be. Be Sound for the data collection, and the funding and support always has to be disclosed, so these are just some of the principles from people. Here Journal retracts. That's the Journal doing its job of oversight. So, what does this retraction mean in terms of what we know about this drug hydroxy Laura well. That's the accompanying major headline here so first of all in terms of this drug, the FDA has granted what we call you a emergency use authorization for. For use in hospitalized patients with Covid, one thousand nine randomized clinical trials are ongoing all over the world from this drug, so we have not heard the end of it, but according to the FDA, and this is a quote. There is no evidence that hydroxy chloroquine is safer effective in the prevention or treatment of Covid nineteen. At this time, every drug every study always has its risks and its benefits and its strength and its limitations, so the research is. Is definitely ongoing. All right Dr John we appreciate it. Thank you well all week. We have watched as protests have erupted around this country and my next guest says now is the time for athletes and celebrities, those with the strongest voices to speak up and speak out joining me now super bowl, MVP and Hall of Famer Terrell Davis Daryl. Thank you so much for being with us. What makes this time different? Why is now the time to speak out? It's time. You know we've seen this. Sort of treatment obliged in our country for far too long and I think the video would join Floyd really. Kind of highlighted, but we've been talking about a very long time, and it's a video of law enforcement. Basically, killing a man owners, the owners net or over nine.

I'm suffering styles The national now register which is being talked about now is about two point six million households. We closed about eleven thirty five people also too few. The president came out loud. I'm someone weekly see that we need to increase in number by not shown. I want me and so we probably have Let's see three point. Six million households that needs to be reached or that we reached but then you have more than two point. Six million households we have. We should have about fifteen houses. What are we doing seclude? The we've over one hundred million people that are in poverty. These knots even captured in the register. Which of course. Even you would have with two point six million. Also you'd have twenty nine people captured. Are we have a population of two hundred million or more done? And then you have an additional fifty percents of those more than two percent of the population living in poverty. So you tells you social brush stroke Joe reaching out to the poor undo that are picked. It goes modules report that are affected by this crisis of this time. He tells you that that social structure is not strong enough. And it's not working we. We need to wait conference. Does each night wave tweet developed status stuff each named Jerry on social security number or some sort of way that we can recognize. It's about bbn. It's not main engines afford to look me in in the wake. On each named Jaren wake-up we've push those conversations about each named Jaren having a social security number rates knew who we are where we are are level of income and if we got to be easier go into credit account or send palliatives who demo to each that affected by such crises. So that's one so the second points he's on thinking about homegrown solutions to whatever program we in this country. Because I'm not the most ants particularly with the lockdown. Sometimes we we do a lot of visa. What's been done outside the countries and they'll just send to more than e countrywide even stuff it Programs so I think This time we mean homegrown solutions. We need to really think of. How can we see the economy and save lives at the same time if we we need to invest so much in in in testing facilities invest in the healthcare system and all that but at the same time I think we could consider gradually opening up being fees the economy so that people can work so that people can earn another Nigerians about sixty sixty two percent? And the income. So that tells you better. I mean if you look at the informal nature economy tells you a little people would have been affected by this cases. We can't even afford. So for instance the Sovi does it. General House Soviet done by the national statistics and they mentioned super since Mangyan also feast shortages twelve months of this. Oh Vance was released before. Even the coronavirus issue came to talking about two percents of households context gets. That's been come. Get adequate supply of food and twenty nine thousand for the flu for that. The resort to that twenty seven percents households have to keep your meal because they didn't have money. We're hungry and didn't even eat because of lack of money to the petition is their sincere easy. Cva In the country. And I think we must make conscious effort to see how we come into being reach out to the poor while at the same time stops to keep stuff the common. I can give an example of one. Niimi shifty points announced divide the Celtics on President. The present announced that President announced that up there are five levels For the economy is the coronavirus east content so they never once never find live a fighter simply easy severe lockdown economic activities which way the country is right now. Never worn physically means stop. Wendy economy has opened up and things to in between five hundred and one two three so the government announced plans starts deacon who move into liberal for the best of me on this tells you that I mean this. Is these plans going on on the phone with a little sticky scientists to see we can just continue these lockdown for too long because Goldman come out support citizens businesses for too long. I'm resources I'm not the right. Nine Geraldine two point one percent of GDP with all these if you if you at some of old intervention that those days that we really really Need to do you want this. Anti small. Compared to all the countries some countries Ivan Dean Planning Department South Africa middle tend to handle GDP. What the money is in day on? We can't afford to continue to keep people up too long Because economic implications would be with eight since Rhodri on God bic's so we must pulled together and think of a solution. How do we what? What areas can we even open up? In addition to the essential sick or that era can we opened. What interventions can you? Please do we need to have washing machines. Everywhere do we. Do we do we as we increase and doing the mental about for Sitting Group of Angel. People were highly vulnerable. Maybe love you know for people who can work with at different stages of locked out? We look down for those who aren't time to from They don't have to go around. Yes we need to enforce the stunt as much as we thought we made into two. We must of homegrown solutions to appropriate because we can't economic Sustained come afford to sustain the lockdown too. So that's Out of what I came time economic implications would be it would be if it's unfortunate that we all week these this time but at the same time. I think as much as we try to save lives this. Let's not destroyed equality and that. Same thing Mr Winkle homegrown solutions to program on how to get out and then we come over. Palm on virus all eats ramifications..

And how will this impact the livelihood of Nigiera's? Do you think this scenarios would be festival? This would be starting on price movements because of course into sixteen cruella ladles into recession arrived. Burqas out of the session but one interesting thing about the pop up. He was just so we had e V ship recession visa. V ship recession such safety. Draw the line and save means you just wind down then you came out so we went into a recession in two thousand sixteen by the first quarter by the second quarter.

How long can we sustain these economic? Look down and also I think more important. Dan Wilson needs to government intervention. What I'd be policies as to show that we limited the impacted negatively about those look down on these nets is all citizens household on all economic agents. So I think I'm basically that's Macho to determine whether we we remaining recession for a long time is is more lockdown itself so we we've we do restriction of movement on lockdown of month sentence sentences. I think that in itself is one key. One key activity of one key factor. That would drive economy down into a recession ensure that we stay there for quite a long time so what we are basically doing what we've been doing the last few months and injuries to save lives or seeing the coming. But I think it's very important that we we don't make it either. Our situation we do. We have to save lives. Steve The C.

I think that's one key that keep key factors that definitely bleed Determine how the economy would certainly AIDS looking? More like economy would be heat so the pushed on these people in the box being in there. How long are we going to stay in every session on how long what do we need to do to ensure that we? I would to reduce the number the length of of recession So so it means came would probably have a huge shift recession. So it's going to lose theater for a long time before so this can be offset if interventions meant interventions up properly structured and ensure that they reached those affected households and businesses. I think that's one of the Nigerian. Economy IS HEAVILY. Reliant on the oil sector and despite several efforts we seem not to have fully diversified economy. But what policy. Directions will be effective at this time to drive economic expansion and on the long term diversification devastation longtime immobile. Diversify here I mean you. You want to change. The structure of economy defined period of time. So a year is not something to be something that active shooter outdoor part of the problem. You're seeing now. We haven't done what we should have done but mind you let me see the I. I don't think that menderes programs poodle because of a couple of weeks apples because or reliance on Hulu because I can examples from countries like Saudi Arabia countries like Russia. We've got on these countries heavily dependent. Budo SAUDI ARABIA. For instance relies so much for. What's different between nature you up when you moved to see for the future so be have reserve so by GM or combined with his monkey side to become adequately finance government finance TV.

I mean Saudi Arabia disease tend to be barrows and enjoyed struggles to given to Tara's body so that tells you that even in terms of the oil itself. I we really rich to help you find not only reach. Why do we always think the problem? The problem itself. How we don't we haven't done what we need to do. Over the year so part of which is savings for the future acquiring. We even see how much it took awhile to to even get this over wolf on into appreciate the excess crude-oil account in challenge being he because he sees every money that comes into the edition common shared across the Tweety of government.

Show one eight legal to start saving using the lower no of this lack consciousness about saving for the future for my remember. I one of the lead us ain't on handed you. We need these here.

We've seen how festival so they are different of several transmission mechanism. So do one of them is the price channel where we've seen how demand for could drop significantly physically driven by low low industrial activities. Even people aren't even going out so they lure demand for transport services Which means that based on for fuel? So we've seen cases where KUDA advice features the beat features even wins into a negative so people were actively paying to sell the crude Brains We've seen the drug prices to below twenty dollars per barrel. So that's one key. Effect on also worrisome. I made you couldn't even point. So it's crude because his Such retail with so much put from different places different continent different countries. Saudi Arabia Russia's to you know going on with these war who controlled the market so that creates a lot of uncertainty and outlook for the price of crude which we all knew that It's a major to tell me. Not How would home because who those who? Who Do. I need surprise? Oats to also have accused in relation to grow now reserves Fake thing go. Men's revenue and also can boost in external an exports earnings. So the woman days that drove a significant drop in crude oil project. What we're experiencing it means go. Mint will not be able to meet its financial obligations so things like team salaries which are very important to of things that Keno costs to keep the government running things like infrastructure investment in education healthcare spending unlivable would be severely affected as a result of the decline include a price so that was one effects off the virus pandemic on on major out. And we all know that. Didn't they drink on every dependent on government last recession you? What dresses dot point? One days trouble. We'd Goldman finances that direct linkages into the system of course demand going down ability to meet for an exchange needs becomes Richard Grind fixed on our reserves of approaching five dollars. Fallen significantly on this is made was that we don't have adequate savings fiscal bofors because this this is what countries rely on this point in time to see if we can't get rid of and you only need to drive into saving but right now we're GonNa have got so it's a gesture switch on major. It's not an easy one and a lot of a lot of things of ancient would need to go on what we do now because projections. I've said that the recession is inevitable. We come up way so the question then is what is the how come show that. We don't get to the bottom economic depression new and show that we even if we get into research on become come back because he's just a word it's deficts lives and people who are jobs prizes. We'll go up the poll. Become for many people would fall below the poverty line so these are some of the reality. Is that likely to come on onboard going into next year? So that's one. Tim Buck of price on that. Transmission Magnesium is the fact that cinch off and on trade. He's also been disrupted movement. You know challenges and the global supply chain. So there's an overall materials on this show groups that need to be used in production of what I would also be affected especially when many of the global economy is experiencing lockdown economic activities so? I know that Chanel is through the local disruption intensive Destroy activities locally in Niger. Due to look into restriction so that in itself is a very big space that would also planned in parks and we can imagine for almost a month. We've not read it much economics to c.s in my GDP particularly for you on these continues into it took me June so what if you compared to? Gdp growth egos was that we claim to be lower than what we had by this time last year. So that's an eight. Direct hits on economic activities even do Production of essential temp like food drugs on cool but non-essential also very key down. These needs me to the impact on some sectors so far east on the manufacturing sector. Would you want to do it? Because as much respect for the other sectors within during that fall within the enormous I shall read. That's locked fates cement funding loved the older non-essential sickle sub sectors within the manufacturing sector few grocery goes factor and say coins in nineteen grew by just zero point two percent from two point one percents in twentieth. So that tells you that already you experience in decline so these kind of shock to the system much more declaim talks won't key six also come additional one hundred thirty entertainment and recreation. Saito would be heat So tells you restaurants on it basically places. We have gatherings of people events of one on one key areas that are affected by these. Look down that Saito would be obscene. Li La down what we had last year on undertake construction sector. So we've had a case way Because Structure Signal always relies heavily on government spending. So if you look at the jets let one dedicated to capital spending close to over to treat with being. Shall we D- falling oil prices to review the Govan. How to read either budgets to using the bench Bockel Fizi da Barra even with that. And still you know STU opinions going around that that's unit so We may not have any projections because he's not just oil time also annoying so if the economy's on found a major commitment to these you know try to be mean to spray the requires without also means one. I- revenue companies and install commentary so we would also let me see declaiming noyer so that's over of course without fixed construction and even right now the the main focus has been to contain the spread of the buyers. If you notice most of the government's batsmen Goldman spending than channel to hell and some of the sectors. So what are we talking about roots structure on a really apple so to construct contact though would definitely be be hard heats sectors so there's also transport take the transportation movement of goods four segments to real road and see dressing. The transportation was actually the fastest growing thing Clinton in nineteen. I see deep so this time. It's the hot heat. Because the restrictions on the movement is either was one of the best sectors valid affected. Even so it'd be lots of so we would probably have naked down declining. Good enough transports sector across all the different categories so from the air transports to transport a real transport so also social services sector so you have education on our very key. Sick does that. I think that's a result of of the lockdown for education show downloads to and that in itself tells.

My name is not on this caused by Africa. I will be talking about how did but is handled. When a person dies of ninety I believe is right here and right now kept business radio to it profitable Africa so it is no longer news that the former chief of staff to the President of the Republic of nine Mama Carey died or the coronavirus seventeenth of April. Twenty twenty now. He's rather unfortunate incidents where they just went to highlight the fact that that's what we do respect of persons in kills the old and the young and it affects people who are highly pleased on people who have nothing so the more we followed these trucks.

Mary's burial was fraught with a lot of controversy in that the body was probably not handled as well as it should. Have to shout distancing issues because people who attended the bureau more than stipulated and the wick crammed unpracticed to one another so. The barrier practices. Need to change. What happens right now if it dies of ninety body needs to be hounded in very specific guidelines by being. Cdc body needs to be carried by people who are wearing protective equipment. The religious cannot touch the piece. The body to keep that in distance not inflicted. This is all for the protection of the relatives. Now the burials to be as dignified as possible giving that this other human being who had you in life and had done things in life and you deserve that dignity of a burial worthy of a person but it has to be done in a controlled manner infected if the person dies at home however is a different matter is at home and for one or the other religious suspect they might have been good with nineteen the really ought to call the.

"For Disease Control the NCDC as well as other authorities who have a specific practices in Kobe. Carbon Copied Nineteen Now social distancing and other precautions Also in the mix. So why do we need made in Nigeria Solutions Thanks thanks for having US. Social distance in as walks in part because the the government shutdown. And you know bothers movement in Lagos Ogun Abu However you know keeping a distance from each other working from relying on your safety net these measures which advised by. Who you know against the coronavirus pandemic made for parts of the war. That cannot afford to retreat in individualism for millions of people in cities. Like Lagos and Kano. There's no such thing as You know social distancing yourself many in those for almost a month now legos. You know some are privileged enough to stop the panthers who had loss of You know hand sanitizers wipes facemasks food and basic needs but many others rely on d today and in for them to be able to provide for themselves now. These safety nets have not been readily available in Nigeria. The government you know in these states and the federal government have been doing their bit but there's the comments on histories now people say Hong Kong Alvar. You know the land mass of Lagos is unbelievable. Small landmass with a lot of people teen to twenty million people depending on where you are. If New York you know never sleeps because the lights are always on Lagos never sued. Because there's no power most times because you know man people stay outdoors to get some air some so that they don't choke down. Wendy are getting some air you know. A lot of things can happen. You know. Illegals relies on a lot of informal economy. It's the economic capital of Nigeria. Was still you know. It's the informal economic capital of West. Yes because mining curious street might manicures. You know it's very novel is nothing you'll find all about. This is how these people survive and these people the ones who houses leaving communities where forty people or more share building share a bathroom you know. So how do you social distance from that? It's different from what it is all about the world that is why you know we need to look inward. I look at our own peculiar challenges to solve our own problems and You know you know. The government has been trying to the state government who look at things from a holistic manner. Which is what we've been clamoring for for years and years. The local governments need to be powered by themselves. Because it is true. You know local governments that we can get primary healthcare now. We get a lot of things happening for people in their words in the zones. You know that is why we need made in nine hundred solutions. You know I can continue to speak. Speak about many things that you know you know. We need to do but think about it. Even beyond the people that live in penury Two weeks coronavirus case was confirmed in Lagos doctors in the AFC. Booja announced that they were going on strike. Overwhelmed compete salaries. Those are doctors. The people you know part of the Tri Stat supposed to help stop the spread of the Earth. You know in it's it's it's just very baffling and what we must do. Now is crafty innovative solutions based on our own unique similarities. And this not mean that we have one solution for the whole country. We simply need to make these solutions graduate solutions in densely populated passively must differ from the suburbs dissolution from Alabama's differ from you know scanty islands in Nagoya. We Need Solutions. That are based on local challenges of the people set in places. I haven't had cases you know. Pat Glennon Yanagawa. If people live on an island and then you you stop them from traveling. Mainland to get resources Dandy will look for other ways that we can cost the spread if there is a case amongst them so we must envisioned solutions for win was also invasion could solution for win coronavirus spikes because according to some experts above the NCDC and Lagos officials. We haven't reached that peak yet. So at that point we must plan for it on That is why we need. Maybe Niger solutions because men for example even in Lagos right. Now you're looking at places like but agree yes. There are no cases in fire. We buy in. We look when we talk me goes we. Oh we just think maybe the metro yeah places like the you know the mainland Ikeja Nasty like that. But I'll expect that somewhere like but agree Those who who are four years I jog by be locked down. Saturday doesn't get there and then they will find a way to ensure that you know their life can continue their but within that space absolutely should be solutions. Need to be designed for each part of and that's why you know If a practice true federalism you would help us really Solve problems for people where they are rather than trying to use uniform solutions or national solutions to solve local problems. Which is what has pulled us back over here so maybe now we can start. You know doing those anything's set in short term. You know reforms on medium-term reforms for us to achieve what we need to do as it totally. Now as my giresse foremost think-tank. That's you guys. At the end she What are some of the things that you are doing to make these This happened that is You know looking for 'em local solutions to some of these challenges there be any issue works across twelve policy commissions for the five mighty and three communities of practice. I knew sound like a lot of numbers and a lot of decisions. What these things through. All Saito's economy from agriculture to human capital and think about it. Agriculture has been very effective because a lot of people have had to be at home but even in upper parts of the country where a lot of agricultural things are happening. These people simply produce that he can ship to larger cities and their businesses have been affected profits. We are affected. You know roadblocks on the road and everything happened on. The road has made some of your produce. You Know Rothfusz stop you know before getting into the market you know A friend of mine told me about you. Know Market Women. The cheese she went to the market as a kid has an essential service and provide and salt trucks and trucks on carts of Rotten fruit being thrown away and she was conversation with me and said why can't do things be given out to the people before they you know. So these are ways that we can Solve those problems. As as as a government we are not the government you know at the NASD beyond what we're doing You know it's In many many angles across these sectors that I mentioned currently advocating for short-term media long-term policies that will aid survival of Nigerians. Our modern surviving. That will help them. Thrive through short term. Because you know currently as coronavirus you know then medium-term plant and long-term plan so we're having discussions which will you know Coming to you know would unravel in the near future beyond policies. We have sport several piracy of players to make generous contributions to was a public private partnership to flatten the curve. resources that are now being used to us this current and looming challenges of the future and also it is important to note that Dylan pandemic you know It's quite different from Wendy Spanish flu was there. Or you know all of the other pandemics of the past this different way enabled by technologies time so therefore to tackle the pandemic the as you supported you know eventers platform firm foundations practice of strange which is getting young. You know vibrant innovators to come up with solutions solutions. That can help us solve the challenges of this novel virus. You know. Many of them came on board you. You'll be amazed about many ideas that are people. Are you know the way that you know? Young Nigerians one to execute and change future able to Help if you seven of them one of them imagine what they create novell solution based on technology duck and help contact tracing things that have been adopted by certain state governments now and people are using it to trace context people that are had devised tracing contacts around there. But what are we doing down to use innovative solutions? And these things were created by grown solution so this is very critical is vital. And don't forget when we get through this pandemic which we will. This solutions will not just go today. They'll continue to you. Know Nacho them and use them for all the challenges that confront us in the future so this is the way that we can create made. Niger.

"Right It's still a very very good day here on Africa Business Radio and we're going into something novel I know the word novel has been in People's ears now in Relation to something a bit You know on the negative side of health and causing pandemic but still on that subject We are starting our partnership here with the Nigeria Economic Summit Group and Africa Business Radio. And we'll be looking at covered. Nineteen and Nigeria's socio economic outlook. It's going to be a five part series and we're going to be looking at the implications of what the pandemic is having might have a will have on the Nigerian economy medium short and long term. And to do this with us so we have a definite at the end. Of course somebody from Deny Jira economics group the G We be having that conversation and going into all of that. is Allying cut in your love. Good Day Sir and welcome. Thanks for having me It's a privilege to be here My time mentioned that You're the first to right the first time. So all right so Kudos to be congratulations to certain. Put myself on the back here. That's it right so Part one of the series is what you're listening to today and we're going to go straight into it so I'll ask the questions and he will answer we'll rent a little bit so here goes You Walk at the economic. Think tank The G since Nineteen ninety-three setup Doing some good things Since then What effect has coordinated hat on businesses livelihood and The German economy Thanks for having me once again. I think it has had a gruelling effect. You know on every single one of us Covy nineteen in modern two hundred and thirty countries and you know The world is A global market. Now it's a it's a neighborhood you know when you cross over to anywhere. Globalization has opened up the world and it has also allowed the covert dynasty and spread. What is nothing to really panic about? Because if you read history you'll go back and you find out that there have been many pandemics down here and the world always recovers and you know they say you know if you go in the fire you know. That's when it comes out so I'm sure that we recovered. There's no need to panic. However it's been grueling on the livelihood of everybody you know everybody is taking hard ninety has about two hundred million people and You know the federal government officially our showdown Leaguers Abu John Ogun state but if you realize those are the nerve centres of the country and also some state governors have followed suit to you know to shut down their own stakes just to protect the people because we all know that our health care system is in the best of the best way to do. It is to use policies to keep them people at home to protect them. You know But wanting to notice that Korea virus affects different countries. In different ways. You know Famous New York City's shutdown because health is in you know paramount before for nine. June's this quite different Everyone are on what has employed social distance in because he many of these western countries Have people most people have houses to go to buddies quite different here We have two hundred million people. The president on Sunday announced that You know some politics safety nets provided to two point. Eight million households but According to Niger statistics we have at least eighteen. Million poor people very poor people in the country. We have forty. We have forty million unemployed or on the employees people so two point eight million. Six people bars. Would you know about twelve thirteen about eighteen? Million People that the program will reach which means that there's a dearth of of of You know challenges that would confront us and it's it's not insurmountable but we would have to all come together and use something that we refer to as it trident to tackle this to tackle this challenge. Now explain that well Nigeria has is heavily reliant on the on the oil sector you know the honest contribution to GDP and the oil prices have dropped significantly to have effects on the economy and also on foreign direct investment because investors. Aren't you travel around the world and looking for opportunities right now everyone is trying to shore up? Who would have great effects on on our economy but the good thing also that helps us at this moment because is that our country is a has a huge informal economy as well you know not just the the guys will it means that doubt would also help us but sometimes the infamous economies is is hard to measure. What because of that? That's why I'm so upset mystic that we will bounce back bought. You know you would have serious serious effects on the formal. You know Economy why that is that Just think think about the Trident people say medical is the most important thing but The medics only three people that that are ill but the the also important in Detroit so number one is the medical efficiency number two is governance and number three is communication right dot trident is needs to. I read that to try and expand the other one in a bit. So I tried interviews in you know medical efficiency which Let's be honest. We do not really have bought through governance. In in this time we've been able to to Repack IN LAGOS STATE. You know And some other states. The state governors stepped up To to create Isolation centers in partnership with private. Sudas help so that. Trident of Medicare efficiency. Governors communication is what What determines how could. Ninety-nine affects every country of this world for example The number of cases occur virus in Germany is as high almost as high as spins but far less up people have died which is because the US destroyed and of medical efficiency. We all know what we call Germans. German machines machine yes. They've used exceptional government. I'm most importantly communication so when he social distance state whom Depending on who should stay at home. How people should get their resources how people should interact are people should commute. How the markets you walk out the essential services should walk solo. These trident is very important. I'm I'm I believe that If we get it right of course we are you know. At than economy on a state body if we get it right to to a certain level we will be able to. You know you know Solve our problems and covered nine hundred problems in our community at the moment. Now what does the other tried and against the nineteen the Audit Trident is Barbaro? Meet much it. Hit About Twenty eight twenty five which means that. The government cannot fund to telephones this process so the other trend is the is the funding. We all know business works with funding. Nothing works without funding so the Trident is the government which is the federal state and local government funding the efforts. The second is something. I would like to comment which is where the NASD operates which is Private sector organized and informal private sector use as the second part of the Trident and third the international community So the privates stepped up massively. I'm sure many of us in the in the cities I've heard about you know so much money that the privates have donated to us this 'cause you know the government to I spoke fifty nets died. The government put in place what the international community is important in helping us with medical efficiency. You know I mentioned earlier that You know without that efficiency. We can't do anything some weeks ago. Some Ferrari that some Chinese people came into nine Jonah. Treating people became to train people But if you notice the European Union the Dutch empty these people have been donating you know finances. Resources achieve maximum efficient. Whatever it is we are doing a wanted to To be rid of this pandemic what should be our priorities against Kobe? Nineteen at this time but we have to utilize bottom tridents to to tackle. A few of our priorities are mentioned. The you know the parodies Shortly but I'd like to mention Something quickly it is the fact that You know in in Lagos about six million people live on incomes largely on a daily basis. You know any represents millions of families who can only start buying making meals you know when the primary breadwinner gets home every day and the breadwinner has not been able to go out so you know number one.

"Please go ahead as we said this. Stick into your nostril to test you for the corona virus disease. It might be uncomfortable but definitely not painful. So just relax. I will get this done in the next one minutes well about is probably what you hear if you were being tested. For THE CORONA VIRUS DISEASE. Well on this podcast by Africa Business Review and the film's I'll be answering people's burning questions that you might have on the Corona Virus Disease. I need and I will be doing this right here and right now Africa Business Radio too. It's a profitable Africa so some people have asked me so that the right now what happens when somebody thinks they have virus disease and the answer is he wants to tell them. What did they do? The blood sample liberal at a urine sample. And say okay. So what do that? What we call a nasal firing gel swap now. What happens is that the instead is stick into your nostril to reach US far back as the back of your throat and I knew that sound on uncomfortable but how collected now the inset specials swab stick that looks like cotton board so it has a long shaft and it also has synthetic material at the end of that. Shut the nostril. Let us to rob the buckle the tools and then the sample is transported to a special lab in which is special tests called reverse transcriptase preliminaries. Chain reaction is conducted when that test comes up positive then the person is confirmed to have Karuna virus disease. What they look for in that is actually the genetic material of the virus that we have collected from that news of Gel swab all that tests or other methods that can be used to collect samples to confirm for the president of the coronavirus disease. Include an ORAL FOR RANGEL'S BOB. That just means the mouth is where they go through to get the sample just inside the stick into the mouth and the back of the throat is Putin sample we pops up and then spits into special content that is transported to the lab and then also what we call them for bronchial. Al Ula Varghese done but who are on ventilators now all these big teams for the various methods that we used to get samples to test for the virus disease.

"When we encounter a new virus belonging to this family of viruses, we would call it a novel coronavirus, meaning a new one one that is now found to be a human infecting virus that previously we had never really observed or identified. We've since given the name of this particular novel coronavirus as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona virus to or SARS cove to coby capital. See Lower case, O, capital V.. V. Now I'm GonNA stick with novel Corona virus or just corona, virus or virus for this episode. Just know that when I'm using those terms I'm referring to this specific viral strain and people infected with this novel Corona Virus. Develop a particular respiratory disease. That's what covid nineteen is. COVID STANDS FOR CORONA virus disease in the nineteen for two thousand nineteen, because it was first observed right at the very tail end of two thousand nineteen, and you might also hear another designation that means the same thing which is two thousand Nineteen Dash in Cio v, but these are. Are All just ways of saying. We found a disease caused by virus that we previously didn't know about it. Infects humans, it affects us, and as part of the Corona virus family of viruses, and also we found out about it back in two thousand nineteen. That's what that name really tells you. It doesn't tell you anything useful about the disease itself as far as symptoms or treatment at just tells you what family belongs to, and when we discovered it, so if none of that gives you useful information as far as how infectious diseases or how dangerous it can. Can Be or what you should do to avoid it or what you should do if you suspect you have it or anything like that. We gotta look beyond that, so let's get into some more details and promise I'm going to bring this around to tech, but I feel that as a person who has a platform that's capable of reaching people have a certain responsibility to share this information. Just in case you haven't encountered it on your own yet. So I apologize for those of you who have read up on this or I've heard numerous other shows or or Any other contact you've had that had a lot about this, but I wanna make sure everyone has the information they need to kind of understand what this is, and how to deal with it now going to start by talking about the symptoms of Covid nineteen and how infectious it is, and what the risks are as I think, that's what causes a lot of anxiety in general, so it's best to cover it I the two basic symptoms for people who get Cova. are a dry cough and a fever. There's sometimes also a shortness of breath. That's the third one that's fairly common, and that's pretty consistent. Those are also symptoms that we tend to find in other diseases, so it makes it a little tricky to self diagnose. It turns out. You might have the common flu for example and not covid nineteen, so you can't necessarily be certain. You've got one thing. Versus when the symptoms are so similar to each other covid, nineteen is pretty contagious disease, and it has most easily transferred when someone with covid. covid nineteen is already really sick, and that's largely because the sick person tends to cough and as they do, so they propel respiratory droplets into the environment, and the virus is inside those droplets that being said as I record this. We're still learning about this. Particular virus. Doctors estimate that the incubation period that would be the length of time between when a person is infected by the virus, and when they actually start to exhibit symptoms of Covid, nineteen can be anywhere between one to fourteen days, although most estimates focus on around being five. Five days, so it's possible that someone can be a carrier for the virus, but not yet exhibit symptoms for a couple of days, people in close proximity or those who come into contact surfaces that get those droplets on. Them are in danger of catching this disease. This is why you hear so much about washing your hands and using hand sanitizer, and not standing or sitting too close to people in general as well why you're told not to touch your face, you know not to transfer this virus to say your mouth or your. Your eyes or your nose, people tend to get infected after they touch surfaces that have these droplets on them, and then they end up transferring that to their face more often than not so touching, the face gives the virus the opportunity to infect a new person, and that just means that the virus can continue to perpetuate itself now that being said if someone is sick, having them wear, a mask can help them. Keep from spreading the those respiratory droplets to service around them, so masks are really great for people who are already sick. But. They have a limited usefulness for people who are not infected. If you are healthy, wearing a mask does not guarantee that you will stay healthy. It doesn't limit your exposure to the things that can cause the COVID nineteen disease It might discourage you from touching your face, which is a big part of it. That actually may help in that way indirectly the mask itself isn't really providing super protection for you. It may just discourage you from doing things that could easily It caused you to transfer the virus to your face but it might also provide a bit of psychological comfort, and while it may not serve any real shield purpose. Purpose for keeping you well. Psychological Comfort can go a long way to I know a lot of us are feeling a lot of anxiety, and we're seeking out comfort wherever we can get it as long as we're doing it in a way that is not increasing our odds of getting sick I'm generally in favor of that If it does increase your odds of getting sick, not are you not really helping yourself? You're putting yourself more at risk so the disease spread quickly, but then how deadly is it well? It's a respiratory illness, and it's more dangerous for the elderly, and for those with respiratory problems or for those who have compromised immune systems. If you are younger and generally healthy, catching covid nineteen would likely be unpleasant. But potentially you could treat it through self care at home, essentially staying home, staying hydrated and waiting for.
