"Ring central news line by Dr Amash adult Jeff senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins center for health security Dr thank you for joining us this morning so everybody's yes but does this prove immunity well you have to remember that the maternal result even though they're very very encouraging with phase one clinical trial and that really is a trial that's designed to look at safety and it does appear that this is safe and they did find some antibodies and individuals that were vaccinated and does that does anybody seem to be protective in animal models so it does look like there is a need to being generated by the vaccine obviously we're gonna have to do this in bigger patient groups and you're going to see this vaccine moving to phase two and phase three clinical trial to get a full understanding of what the media is what its duration is what the dosage of the vaccine and how many doses you need all that needs to still be figured out but it is promising that they had a good result in a phase one clinical trial if I understand correctly it's not unusual for testing for a vaccine to go on for months possibly even years but will this process be speeded up as best it can be it in light of the corona virus nineteen pandemic it's definitely the case this is already going at a record pace because of the urgency of developing a vaccine because that's the only way that we can get to decrease this threat will get back to normal so what you might you may see is phase one and phase two trials occurring simultaneously you may see the any kind of any kind of shortening of any kind of process happen likely what will happen if the FDA will grant an emergency use authority to use the vaccine before phase three trial completely finished because they're such an urgency to get the vaccine but we still need to think about manufacturing and up does the score the US population of the world population and that's going to be daunting even things like the medical glass to put the the the vaccine in the vials that's going to be an issue that we have to think about as well when it comes to this manufacturing will we be totally dependent on moderno are will be because of the crisis will they be sharing their knowledge and could other plants be ramped up to produce this vaccine so it's important to the maternity themselves have never made a vaccine that they're going to need a manufacturing partner and we're hearing about for example operation warp speed where they may start manufacture even before we know whether something works B. and that's gonna be something the government is going to do we've also heard about the gates foundation a Bill Gates talked about building factories ahead of time to start production so this is going to be something that up it's a partnership with Madonna in other companies notice actually make enough doses to get into the arms of Americans are there any cautionary tales that we should be aware of in light of the manufacturing of other vaccines vaccines in general are very very safe obviously there are side effects and any medications you take including vaccines and it will be important to study this and enough people so we have some idea what the side effects been and we know that there are people in the anti vaccine movement that are going to trying to decrease the concreteness acting bringing up things like the nineteen seventy six likely epidemic in some of the pandemic H. one N. one vaccine in Europe and Canada had some side effects we have to make sure that all of that is taking care of and that we have enough the safety data to be able to constantly move forward with this but I I think that we're going to get a successful vaccine but the timeline maybe not not quite but in the next year but maybe maybe up to two years but I think that there's no biological reason we don't have a vaccine is safe and effective and this may be out of your wheel house but in light of the crisis R. is everybody going to be able to get a vaccine or is this going to be a money thing no I believe this is going to be a vaccine that is free or covered by insurance if not one of those other it's going to be at no cost direct cost you that to the patient I think this is going to be something that's more of a government project that will be funded by taxpayers Dr Daljit thank you for.

"Off yeah everywhere whether it's a craft Hey there Pennsylvania or across the country folks are getting restless many people feel like it is time to get out of the house it's time to get back to normal whatever normal looks like so the question becomes are we ready is social distancing something that will be a part of our new normal and if it is what's it look like and are we ready for it Dr Amash and dollars yeah is a specialist in disease a critical care specialist as well as in infectious disease control welcome to the conversation Dr thanks for having me so is it time for us to have the conversation about getting back to some semblance of normal I do think it is important as we enter the next phase of this pandemic that we start to think about how we re open parts of the economy what things are going to be safe but things are still going to be unsafe and and how we will adjust to those types of it effective changes that are going to be occurring all across the country at all cost eight so one of the things that I keep hearing is that this is a conversation that we should be having as long as we take into consideration or factor and the CDC guidelines for social distancing so I went to their website today kind of refresh myself but I feel like they're kind of I don't wanna say generic but they're kind of vague I mean it's like six feet you know stay six feet apart no groups no crowded places mass gatherings I don't feel like that gives businesses or or even individuals a lot of real specifics about that's correct I mean there's not really going to be black or white answers to many of this is going to be a lot of great and we're going to have to adapt certain guiding principles to try and modify our activities to decrease the risk of transmission and this is going to be different in different locations in different cities different faith even maybe even different counties as well as with different types of businesses and some are going to be easily adapted to this summer going to be harder and it will be an important task to try and think about what we can get away with in terms of keeping it keeping the virus at bay so that we don't we're gonna get increase in cases the sooner you start to have more people interacting but the key principle needs to be well the number of cases that we have to be at such a low level that we will never really threatened hospital capacity and that's it that's the whole issue so there will be things like mass gatherings that are going to be very difficult to have but other types of businesses may be able to be open maybe they'll be less people in the maybe they will be more social different thing going on in the businesses maybe they'll be more hand washing stations make people be wearing masks all of that type of thing may happen it's all going to be different and it's all going to work out kind of real time as we get through this so will also be a time when especially coming out of this phase that we've been in that some businesses are going to reevaluate maybe we don't need as many people in the office maybe we don't need to have as many people who use public transportation to get here maybe we need to stagger Dane stagger hours I mean as we prepare for this next phase is this the time that our businesses need to really sit down and look at how they've done business up until now and evaluate whether or not that's how to do business going forward definitely there is going to be a lot more telecommuting I think that many businesses realize that they can be pretty efficient using telecommuting in not having their their personnel fly all over the country for business being so they can do more in the more virtual meetings more telecommuting it's going to be definitely recommendations for those who are at high risk of complications the elderly those other medical conditions to continue the social distance at a higher degree than maybe other members of the population so there will be modifications changes and people are getting used to doing things electronically now having virtual meetings and some of that will stay so there is going to be a new normal that we're going to face as we get back to life and do we see our office is on the future I mean do we envision an office where we walk in and there is a person who greets you ever section is or whomever with the masking everywhere you go and that particular business I mean are we going to be seeing cloth masks throughout the workplace are you you know I'm not coming into that that's completely convinced that mapped out the way forward or or really that effective here because there is some controversy on the data in my field but I do think that you're going to see recommendations for that and it's going to be more common to see people having pop math when they're out meeting in jobs that are facing the public and when we talk about some of these adjustments like I know one of the local grocery store chains here giant eagle to be specific has now made you know the aisles one direction so sure they avoid people crossing has any direction are those the kind of adjustments were we're going to be seeing as well and I'm using a grocery store as an example but that's one of the ways that they have made the adaption yeah I do think you're going to see people trying to decrease the traffic that they have within stores and with it any kind of enclosed spaces and and that kind of burying it's gonna depend upon what type of storage what kind of interaction people have with each other but that's going to be something that we're going to see happen the variability across across the state I think there may be guidance about how to do that but each shopper's gonna be implementing it around on different way and and I think that we're gonna have to get you get used to that and it's going to be like this until we have a vaccine because the virus hasn't gone anywhere it's still going to be there when we when we end the social distancing the strict social distancing that's been implemented as you said at the end of the day then that's the last question I want to ask you I mean we're kind of looking at we could be seeing some of this loosening up within the next two weeks and the virus hasn't gone away so what should people be thinking and feeling because I think they're two two schools of thought on this wine there are one side of it the thought is that people are anxious to get back to some semblance of normal and then there's the other side where people are very very nervous you have to realize that this is a virus that efficiently spread between humans and it's not going to go anywhere until we have a back seat it's going to be there the key thing is is that all the social distancing what it is for it to try and preserve hospital capacity it's not that we're preventing cases from occurring it's we're having them spread out over a longer period of time so that we don't overwhelm our hospitals so now it's going to be left the people to be smart about this virus and understand what their risk might be and take those protective actions that they need to take and it's not it's going to be something that we're going to be part of our everyday life we're going to be living with the virus for the foreseeable future and it's just that now we've given hospitals group debriefing get that'll get billed capacity increase diagnostic testing for fire health department so that they can do contact tracing and now the site now now it's going to be up to us how the the future trajectory of this virus goes and you mention we value given the ability to increase testing how big of a factor is testing going to be in all of our lives going forward either going to be available are we going to have to have it to move around I do think I think it's gonna be a cornerstone to how we move forward because we want to be able to identify the cases that isolate them and trace their contact that's how we that's how we manage this into an acceptable manner because if you have undetected change the transmission that end up spilling into the hospital and causing major outbreaks that's going to put us back to where we started so what we want to make sure that we have enough testing and it's being able to be done efficiently and quickly with rapid turnaround time so that we can do that so I I do think that people are going to get used to having testing available I don't know that everybody's going to be tough everywhere they go but it's going to be much more easy to test people that it is now where it's still very cumbersome to get attached to get the test results back fast all right thanks as always thanks so much for joining us get information previous have a great day we are had twelve twenty five I want to talk to you a little bit about all of that right now twelve forty five traffic.

"The hospital every day for a month of treatment seems a little dangerous right now how should medical patients with ongoing treatment you're prepared to handle the next wave of cases and in going to the hospital save I was a compromised compromised immune system Dr so this is a very tricky good question and it's one of the problems when you have an infectious disease pandemic that there are these cascading impacts on other health conditions and we know that for someone with cancer chemotherapy is life saving and we don't want to interrupt chemotherapy at the at all as possible so what what I would do is each hospital kind of has a protocol for how those individuals to get to the hospital safely get their chemotherapy safely so I would not delay chemotherapy over this infection I would talk to the hospital about the best ways to come in and that maybe you keep it keep those individual segregated from other individuals and our protocols in place because I this is what we don't want to happen we don't want other health conditions to suffer because of this pandemic and I'm afraid that that's going to happen to some extent but hopefully we can minimize it and we've talked some today about what it's going to take to get back to normal but this listener asks what are the metrics to watch for let's listen hi I am Chris Haley in Williamsburg Virginia what kind of metrics will government and medical professionals use to determine when it's safe to open businesses and schools are we looking for a certain level of new cases of particular death rate or something else and I do for you answer Joseph in Wisconsin wrote us a question which is similar along along those lines and Joseph asks how does this end unless a vaccination is developed R. as are we all eventually going to get code nineteen so what what he said to Chris and Joseph I do think that there's going to be a large swath of the population that is infected because there is no population immunity and remember the H. one N. one virus infected twenty percent of the world's population within a year and there was some immunity in the population so we can expect the majority of individuals to get this without a vaccine the question is what are the metrics that you use to to start to bring the world back to life and that's an open question and it may have to do with what's going on locally with the virus how many cases do you have how much is the population been exposed to this virus and can you open certain businesses with modifications that will allow social distancing how are your hospitals doing what is the hospital capacity what has it been you capacity added all of those are important metrics that are going to play a role in how well we can move back from some of this extreme social distancing but this is a really open hard question to answer and there are no hard and fast rules here and it's something that's going to really require a dialogue with the community when we do this and it has a question the kind of loops back to where we started Dr Grayson Florida wrote us and asked why didn't sars rumors spread the way covert nineteen has sars and mers are both corona viruses just like this novel coronavirus but the thing was about sars and monomers is that they were something they were viruses it didn't have the ability to spread efficiently between your sars and mers both came from animals and it went into humans but didn't really find it very hospitable and their ability to spread between humans was really limited we are still having worst cases for example now in the Arabian peninsula but they don't really go anywhere because it's just basically going from camels to humans and then stopping and that's something that this could this coronavirus hasn't had as an obstacle it's been able to spread efficiently between human and that's why it's taken off and become a pandemic and sars and mers never did and never quit well thank you so much for your expertise that's Dr Amash adult jump he's an infectious disease specialist from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg school of public health and the center for health security doctor thanks so much for joining us today and especially for making it so that the lay people among us can understand it sure any tactics and if you have questions about covert nineteen we want to help go to NPR dot org slash national conversation or ask us on social media using the hashtag.

news update I'm Deborah Rodriguez a CBS news time three thirty to a common question being asked in light of the outbreak how can we keep ourselves safe from germs Dr Amash a jala is the senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins center for health security he spoke earlier today with KCBS anchors Patty rising in Jaffa we'll ask you to talk a little bit more about this notion of community spread how much of this is airborne how much of this is services so what what should we no the primary way that this virus is spreading from person to person is to respiratory droplets so those are the kind of largest droplets that emanate from your body when you cough or sneeze in the travel about six feet before being brought to the ground by the force of gravity there may be a small component of airborne transmission that might occur especially hospital settings where people might be having medical procedures done or getting medicines administered by aerosols but we don't think that airborne is probably the major form of transmission you can technically get it from touching common surfaces again that's probably not as common as getting it through be exposed to Cox's leaders but it is important to wash your hands a lot especially when you touch cut common touch services because that there is a risk of contracting contracting it not matter as well here in the bay area does this afternoon Santa Clara county which is reporting more more cases held a news conference at the risk is increasing and and they made the stop of telling people particularly those that rest to avoid large massing gal gatherings places where people are very close together do you think that's justified I mean are we at that point I do think if you're an elderly person or somebody who has met a medical problem such as media suppression or maybe you have lung disease or heart disease are getting chemotherapy that you should try and limit your exposure to other individuals this is something missing part that goes by that we give people during flu season that's nothing neo it's just that we want to be make sure that our most vulnerable populations are informed and protected as best as they can be in before we let you go talk a little bit about where you are as an expert in this area on testing and and what you would like to see done I would really like to see test put in the hands of doctors and being able to get testing done at urgent care clinics but I know we're still quite a ways away from that right now we've expanded testing greatly in this country I'm just being the CDC to many state health department and we're starting to get commercial apps online Q. and hospital university labs are making their own tests were increasing testing rapidly but quite not quite where we need to be we need to go to test out the point of care and get a rapid results of patients so that we can quickly understand how much this is spreading in our communities understand the severity and

at UCSF he says you can't just run down to your doctor for a test you have to be referred by a medical professional that's a good thing because we need more test kits we will eventually have a

"Welcome back America thank you so much for listening to the program this morning joined by Dr Amash doll Joe he is infectious disease doctor at the Johns Hopkins center for health security doctor Dodger welcome good morning thank you for joining us thanks for having me what is the most important thing for my audience to know about the Wuhan coronavirus the most important thing to know is that there are a lot of unanswered questions and the experience in China is probably a harrowing thing for the people that are living there but it's unclear what where we can put this new virus in terms of restraint of occasion because we don't quite understand the severity we don't quite understand how many mild cases there are two severe cases and we have to remember that coronaviruses do cause mild illness and a lot of people and some of the panic that's going on in the United States for example is really unwarranted because the cases we have here well contained and it's actually been no severe cases or death really outside of China no sustain transmission outside of China so there is a very different disparity between that deliver the disparity between what's going on in China and what's going on around the world senator talent who was on last hour and served on the commission on bio hazard in pandemic threats for many years with senator Bob Graham Democrat of Florida said the are not factor on corona virus the will hunt corona virus is not known at this point that it's above if it is about to he will be concerned do you have a guesstimate on that yet doctor I don't have a a really strong get them done it because when you're in the early days of an outbreak in you don't helpful information you can really get fooled by the data and come up with are not or reproductive numbers for the virus how many other people that in fact that are that are way off from the actual we clearly know that in parts of China it's about one because people there's change the transmission that are going on in there for some people it would be they are not would be zero because the patients or not they had no translation so there are not a zero so you would come up with a big number one are not for the whole world it's really dangerous to do that because it's not necessarily that that there's just this magical number that governs everyone's transmission so you think it's somewhere probably in the range of between one and two range but it's hard to know exactly where it's because there has not been a a strong effort to find the mild cases in China in the mild cases maybe what's driving the transmission so you can kind of get widely it's kind of a technical thing that you can get kind of get a wide a wide range of are not none of which are really true I have the Hopkins I'm sure some of your people are advising the president and the secretary HR but if your phone rang gonna Donald Trump any ask you dot yeah dot com caught wants me to stop every plane from China from landing should die how do you answer I would say no we don't need to stop planes from landing they're probably very little traffic going on now between China and the United States based on the fact that that there's less demand for that in our travel restrictions out of China but we don't want to further compound the problems of this outbreak because the travel restrictions when you have travel restrictions during out even though it might make a lot of time the general public but that's what you do end up making things worse because people try to escape the travel restriction you actually end up making the situation on the ground at this at the center of the outbreak worse because you not only don't people leave you actually can't get resources in you create shortages you actually increase the force of transmission in that area and it's really unnecessary we have robot screening procedures that are being implemented now in twenty airports we've done well with the first five cases we have a really extensive the CDC system for tracking patient that may be people that may have been exposed to the virus so no I would not ban any kind of travel at this point I just did I do think we need to be vigilant about people who might have been exposed but we don't want to make things worse in China and and then allow the topic the kind of spiral out of control there and then put the world at greater risk for using travel band which which never work Dr dogs I'm I am a bit skeptical about the reporting and monitoring of patients a B. C. D. E. and F. in the United States for the simple reason that there has been no public disclosure which flights they entered in the United States on nor whether or not they went in to any public place and I know in Germany they've had domestic transmission person to person from people who have not been to China do you criticize the CDC for sitting on this information or do you think it's appropriate I don't criticize them for a sitting on this information I think what you have to remember is that what we know about coronaviruses that you're symptomatic when you're symptomatic is when you're the most contagious so if you are not contagious if you're not symptomatic when you're on an airplane it's not necessarily putting other people at risk I know people get panic they get worried you really have to look at the science behind the virus and when it transmits and we know that the fourth of transmission is when people are symptomatic when they're coughing and sneezing and the CDC has been scrutinizing patients symptoms knowing when they're symptomatic when they're not and that helps with the limit who that Ripken it is different than what happened for example with the Canadian patients in Toronto who both received them out on a plane when they have to wear the Canadian public authorities have disclose that information about the plane and have a look at the passengers when you don't have a symptomatic person you really don't you don't really place other people at major risk of contracting this remember this isn't an airborne virus the way he told it like that as well so you have to really be cop dont need not have some type of respiratory secretions landing on you from the other patient so it's really important to keep that in mind and that that may be part of the reason why we're not talking about which like take me in on it that they were cat which which airport they were they were found then they went through or what their city location at night and I'm pretty confident that the best way to go about this right now because we really want to not have people over react and and and have a panic that's not warranted in and take take the graphic I forgot to get people cutting shortages of surgical mask which they don't really need to have in the United States I agree with that but doctor doll just as someone who traveled throughout my axe I would like to know if people had arrived patient a or B. through LA acts at the same time I was even though they are asymptomatic because I have read in the South China morning post that Chinese doctors believe a symptomatic patients can be contagious for up to five days I don't know if you confirm that the United States yet but if that is true if that's true wouldn't at least argue for over disclosure not of names are hospitals where they're being treated but of travel path if there was a symptomatic transmission then I do think you you have you have a different a little bit of a different dynamic going on and we do disclose all of that for measles where you have or for for certain diseases where you were you may have very casual contact with people but still even if I think it is but it act that complicated and I and I don't think that we got have confirmed that the one report we've never seen it before with any of the other six corona viruses we haven't seen any evidence to support it there's one report and it's really important that whether someone might have had mild symptoms that they get note question for the doctor for the public what is the best book that is accessible to the public that they ought to read on epidemics and control prevention there was a book that came out in nineteen ninety four called the coming plague by Laurie Garrett I think that's probably the most comprehensive book that takes you through a lot of different outbreaks an epidemic that that that hasn't let the festival it's it's pretty thick so there's another one I recommend called the deadliest enemy by Mike Oscar home with the fate of the neurologist in in Minnesota that one is that one take you through his life at the state epidemiologist really gives you a lot of insight into many different African happen a lot twenty five years with you with apart but it works a comprehensive one from eight is the probably the coming plague but the deadliest enemy it's a great book that I would recommend as well I've been listening to the great influenza and find it very very educational as to how public help develop sore like the ghost map but I will go with your two recommendations the coming plague and it was the second one is the deadliest enemy after home now now doctor get let's go turn the positive side assuming that we've got a a new coronavirus here how long does it take to get a diagnostic test how long does it take to and and get it distributed and how long does it take to develop a viral remedy and then a vaccine so the diagnostic tests currently available is being done at the CDC the CDC is rapidly trying to get that out to state health department laboratory so that it's more distributed to get a commercial diagnostic tests that may take quite sometime because because of the ability to actually develop on that can be done and and non sophisticated laps the one and and you can get the technology right and get it through FDA regulations so I think that we won't see a rapid path that's available like in a doctor's office or emergency department for for sometime if you want two months but we will be having regular testing done a state health department maybe some local health departments as well when it comes to a vaccine you have to remember that vaccine development is measured in years not on it you don't really get a vaccine before the credits roll in a in a movie like youth behind contagion we are really moving very rapidly there are new technology that have accelerated that process and the best estimates are that probably in a few months we might see phase one trials but that's not the same thing as having a commercially available vaccine so I don't think that we should count on a vaccine being available for but the fact for this virus on out way wide scale for at least a year or maybe more because this is something that is not done overnight regarding antiviral that's a different story we do have a couple of anti viral that are promising the the the medication that makes me feel to stop the virus from copying it yeah making copies of itself in in your body and maybe decrease the symptoms and there are there is one one promising Avenue of research is some HIV medications that people look that way back and start in two thousand three and those are being now used in fashion and compassionate use for purposes that are sick and all as well as for developing a clinical trial to use these HIV medication that might be able to be perfect against this virus and then there's another experimental drug that is also being considered for clinical trials so that we may see start pretty quickly.

Medical center thank you for talking to us this. Evening Thanks for having me I. Was surprised to read today that the US continues to have the highest STD.

To really hungry People have become very complacent to think of STD's or something that are easily treatable and many physicians are testing aren't thinking about them and we've got. Also the rise of social media that allows a, lot of these dating app to allow a lot more anonymous sexual encounters, to occur I think that that. It's all kinds of now some critics point to the? Fact that federal funding to prevent a control sexually transmitted diseases has dropped significantly do you see that as a factor in all this In many places the place where people feel less stigmatized to go and get treated for. Sexually transmitted infection are tested for what their local health department and local health departments are resource constrained when they have other priorities that that. They're dealing with you can you can often see these things kinda slip through the cracks because people don't necessarily like to go to their primary care. Doctor and talk about these issues so they often, will to the SAD clinic so they often when are constrained you see, these kind of cascading effects where. People don't get tested and they don't get treated and Any. Increase is also part of the problem that. Initially when when people get these, diseases you don't have a lot of symptoms and then you pass it onto a partner without knowing Right many Included a lot of the sexually, transmitted? Infections May not necessarily show any symptoms at all You're still contagious so that makes it much Advantages for an infectious organisms because you could spread around and nobody really. Knows that it's there and nobody's testing for so I do think that you have to think of STD's something that should be routinely tested for that primary care doctors should be talking to every patient about because there's no. Way to get a handle on the less it becomes part. Part of routine care and less stigmatized Dr dodger. Thanks, so much for your time and perspective again Dr a mesh adultery is an infectious disease.
