"There was kind of a retraction Dr Deborah Brooks came out the woman who was scarfs she came out and said that. Two point. Two million people weren't going to die and that five hundred thousand British people weren't GonNa die. But now they were adjusting that down down, thousand goes down to twenty thousand from five hundred thousand predicted deaths now down to twenty, thousand meaning that the models were wrong by twenty, five times. I'm sure many of you saw the recent report out of the UK. About them adjusting completely there needs on. This is really quite important. If you remember that was the report that said, there would be five, hundred, thousand deaths in the UK, and two point, two, million deaths in the United States, they've adjusted that number in the UK to twenty thousand. The math of that and I'm not a doctor, but that would be like me, sir, how tall are you doctor? I'll tell you six that would be like me telling my friends guy. She wouldn't believe on the thrive time show yesterday, we interviewed this doctor. He's kind of a big deal. He is actually a total of one hundred and fifty feet tall. I mean, that's how bad. It. So off these models that predict two point, two, million people were super off. But then we said that the because two two million people might die. We needed to do a temporary locked down. So the hospital systems wouldn't be overwhelmed, and now that we know that the models were off by twenty five times, what justification is still being used to keep people locked down the shelter in place orders, what justification is being used Sir. told. We needed to participate lockdown social distancing. Don't touch your nose your eyes on because we needed one to delay the surge depressed the peak so that our healthcare facilities when be overwhelmed by the number of sick people that would come into them and we have done, we did depress the we did delayed the peak we did. Equip our health care facilities and they just changed the goalpost. We never said that we were going to try to squash the number of covid nineteen cases. Two Zero. Why would we when we know that ninety nine point, nine percent of people that get the disease will recover. The bottom line is the bureaucrats, politicians and academics have changing goalposts all. Now, what we need to do is we need to absolutely stop this from happening because we have to wait for a vaccine to be developed, and that notion is not the best place to go because her immunity is going to be a big part of the solution. We have no guarantee that we're going to get a safe effective vaccine. Now I. believe that this is a great positive thing that our listeners need to know over listeners need to know and filtered. Argue with me begin because you're you're a doctor, but I believe we really do have a cure or at least a treatment for Cova nineteen, and I, believe we have a cure for the fear. I believe that the treatment we had Dr. Bartlett. When he was talking about two hundred and thirty seven dollar treatment that involve the use of an FDA approved asthma medication. As well as a nebulizer. We've also had a hydroxy chloroquine studies that. were. There's also to data coming out and every time a doctor comes out and says, look I've treated my patients and none of them have died just had this week. A one of my clients, a Mardi his family member was treated with hydroxy, clinic didn't die. Why wire all the doctors being censored every time they're sharing about successful. It's accessible treatment of covid nineteen that happening sir. We've never practice medicine by national discussion, and that's what we're doing here. If you go back and look at the legionnaires phenomenon in Philadelphia, we didn't. Take on this discussion on a national level with Dr Fao she having a press conference saying this and this, and then Dr Burke saying this, and then every physician you stick microphone in front of their face, they say something different. What we did was we looked at all of the potential. If, you will treatments and physicians talked with one another they talked with their patients. I mean right now we know that we have the possibility I. Actually clerk might help saw beauty night as productive. Could help some decks and methods zone could help some folks. We know that percents books reservoir might be able to help relooked at Tamiflu. We're going to continue to look at these low flow oxygen versus the high powered ventilator. We need to be able to have these kind of intellectual discussions and we need to let patients and physicians. Talk things through and decide is this something you'd like to try. But what we've done is it's become such a political hot potato that we have physicians who are tearing into other physicians. You don't get to have that conversation with your patients because you aren't as smart as I am on this given issue, and so we just really must know. Now Dr. Fao Chee Newsweek reported and I'm citing all of this. But Newsweek reported it'll be on the show notes, but Dr found chief funded the controversial Wuhan lab with millions of dollars. That's Newsweek. Reporting. That's not tin foil hat dot com. That's not right. Wing Dot Com. That's not Klay Clark. Dot Com. We also that on the Gates Foundation website. We know that Dr Fauci has Has Been working closely with the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, where he is listed as a member of the leadership council. Whatever that is, do you see a conflict of interest there when Dr Doughty is working closely with people like Bill Gates? Who are developing vaccines and he's the one telling everybody that there is no acceptable treatment other than vaccines. Do you see a conflict of interest? Conflict of interest for me something, it's a pretty serious charge. I think I'd have to look outs, financial strings and I don't know that Dr Fao Chia said that the only solution is going to be the vaccine. Certainly, he has endorsed and pushed it. But if you go back to his comments in March, he made the comment that there's never been a successful vaccine put together in less than twelve eighteen months. Do I think that Dr Fauci could've used more discretion as some of his comments? Yes. Do I know if he's going to financially benefit if the only answer ends up being vaccine? No I don't. Okay. How about this the National Institute of Health? Recently fired fifty four doctors all at the same time. For failing to disclose their financial connections to the Chinese. Is that a potential conflict of interest at the National Institute of Health has scientists working for them that are failing to disclose their relationship with their financial relationship with the Chinese? Why do you think about that? I do think that's a conflict of interest in I think transparency and full disclosure should take place in and I have it concerns even as I look at Gilead with its. Product Ramda's Aveer, and then we see Gilead. Having a real vested interest in hoping that hydroxy chloroquine is not accepted as a treatment because if Gilead. Rendez desert is the only potential treatment and the blocks. That's great for Gillian's stock price, and so I think that we need to be very careful about that. Especially when we start to look at the high handed censorship that was going on last week when you had physicians who are using hydroxy, Clark, simply coming for trying to share their story which did result in contrarian narrative being put on. Social Media. Gilead by the way is financed by the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, also in conjunction with George Soros. So George Soros. There we go. So doctors I only going to have a D-. A Doctor Senator here for about twenty five minutes. So I wanted to get all my bad questions out of the way because you're a doctor tomorrow questions now. So I'm going. To ask him some real questions now that I've thrown some pretty weak questions in there so well, I mean, it's exciting I i. tell you what when you have, how much are you doctoring versus initoring? How much what your life looked like up there. I'm a full time position and I probably. In a given year in terms of work units, I probably see. Do about one, hundred, fifty percent. So I'm probably do one and a half practices and then and the legislature probably about I'm GonNa get somewhere around. Maybe, seven hundred, two, thousand dollars a year. Now. How many Kobe patients if you personally traded..
"dr fao" Discussed on The Lead with Jake Tapper
"We're not doing what's called assurance testing. What assurances do you have jake that you don't have the virus than that the People that you're working with today don't have the virus. We don't have that sort of sure testing. So yes if you say, Hey, look, we just need to do the basic minimum, which is just hold pressure on a wound the maybe you could say we have enough testing. That's never been an adequate goal and it's still not and we really have to increase testing ultimately to get around this thing. Just imagine if every kid and every teacher when schools open up were tested before going into the school and they got immediate results, it would be much safer to send kids back to school, but we're nowhere near there. Scientific Dr Fao she said that thirty thousand people have already enrolled in this phase three vaccine trial which begin at the beginning of this week ahead of the public private. Partnership. Overseeing the Vaccine Development said that he hopes any vaccine could be ninety percent effective but found she seemed to express some caution about ninety percent of effectiveness reiter. Efficacy rate in your conversation with him why? Well I think it's very audacious number I mean typically if you think about vaccines, there are some that exceed ninety percent if you get a couple of shots couple of booster shots but many of them have like the flu shot, which would be a good analogy hovers around sixty seventy percent sometimes lower sometimes higher. So the you know the idea of saying ninety percent is a really high goal and it frankly as you know, Jacob becomes the expectation of this. Here's how to explain it. We don't know how effective this is. We know people generate a certain type of antibody in response to the vaccine but if you Were to say to me well, how effective are those antibodies? We don't have what's called a coral to measure I can't tell you those are twenty pounds effective are those are three yards worth effective there isn't a language to sort of described the efficacy of those antibodies we don't know yet..
Report: Unpublished White House document puts 18 states in the coronavirus ‘hot zone’
"Learning new details about an unpublished report from the White House Coronavirus Task Force. It runs counter to the happy talk. Constantly hear from this administration instead. This previously unreported document warns that eighteen. Eighteen states are now in the red zone and that they need to enact much stricter public health measures, including mandating masks, limiting gatherings to less than ten people and ramping up testing in areas where coronavirus cases have spiked doctor. She's The director of the Harvard Global Health Institute told the Center for Public Integrity. Quote the fact that it's not public makes no sense to me. Why are we hiding this information? From the American people? This should be published and updated every day. Joining us now is Dr. as she saw director of the Harvard Global Health Institute. Welcome back to the show. For being with us. Thank, you for having me on. When you look at these three vital of information needed at any point in the pandemic, but certainly while much of the country sees their caseload spike. What is your theory on taking the CDC out of that hospital patient reporting data on not releasing the White House Coronavirus Task Force recommendations for those states that are surging and on shielding or keeping the CDC officials who could offer scientific advice to everyone as Chris as said at the end of issues so eloquently everyone is struggling to figure out the back to school pace. Is Really Hustling. What the strategy coming out of our federal government is! We are in the middle of the pandemic. Things are getting worse clearly in the United States, and we need to be guided by science and evidence, and we need to be hearing from our government scientists, and these reports that that coronavirus task force report, which I think is a really high quality report. It was produced by American tax dollars. The American people have a right to see the American. People have a right to hear mar scientists the American people have a right to the knowledge that they have aid for. We're not getting that right. When you hear Dr Fao, and you see the forums in which he is having to turn to communicate directly with the American people, or we also hindered by the fact that this White House is putting such a heavy emphasis on disinformation that the good information has to struggle and seep through the cracks to get to us. Well there's no doubt about it that there is a lot of misinformation out there. Some of it propagated by the white. House. But a lot of it coming through various channels on facebook, etc, and misinformation in my mind is the sort of we are facing two big challenges, virus and the misinformation around the virus and some days I think I can't decide which one is worse than the other. It's a huge problem and fighting misinformation while we're fighting pandemic makes it much much harder to protect the American people and keep people safe. You know it's such an interesting point to just just muse on I mean where would we be? If everyone had trusted all of the scientists from the beginning I mean. Where would we be if we'd really heated all the stay at home orders if everyone were wearing a mask, today and social distancing. Do you think our numbers would look different? Oh my goodness I think if we had done with the scientific community has been arguing for if we had ramped up testing and tracing from early on if we had started wearing mass when the evidence became clear that mass wearing was work. And where would we be with? have far fewer cases. We have much more of our economy open. We'd have far fewer Americans dead and we would be looking forward to opening up schools this fall with social distancing and with controls, but it would be very different economy in a very different country. We this is all self inflicted wounds as far as I'm concerned.

"The answer to the last part of the question, if the mutation thing I don't think so, I don't think it's mutated enough to potentially make vaccine more problematic. With regard to the first part of your question Jim I'll preface by saying this This has been a difficult story to cover as a reporter so much of what we've learned about. The vaccine development has come in the form of press releases, oftentimes from the companies themselves or what we call P- reprints. You know things that have not actually been peer reviewed. There's only been one reviewed paper that we have found out of China with regard to vaccine development. So that's made this difficult to cover. Having said that I am optimistic, and that's in part because I talked. talked to these researchers on a regular basis I, understand where they are with their trials. We won't know until we actually have a vaccine. There's obviously been diseases and infections, for which we've never developed vaccines such as HIV, but I think you heard Francis Collins come out today, head of the NIH and basically say we're going to have this. By the end of the year I I was surprised that they're being that sort of dogmatic Dr. Fao Chia said the same thing so certainly you have to weigh that into to our optimism. Everybody just about everybody on the planet wants this. And I'm optimistic, but I'd like to see the data. I'm still surprised that we haven't seen a lot of data around this. Sanjay professor housing good to have you both on tonight's sobering sobering commentary, but but it's good to have folks who know what they're talking about. Thanks very much. Next, a closer look at how this is hitting hospitals and more as well from DR chief his answer, when asked whether he thinks we are winning or losing this battle, also the politics of a president who would rather fight a war on behalf of statues of dead people, some of them traders against their own country, then real live Americans David Axelrod Maggie Haberman they'll join US tonight on sixty.

Who Is Winning the COVID-19 Vaccine Race?
"New face on the race to develop a corona virus vaccine as cases surge in several states. Terrell joins us with the very latest. Hey, MEG! Hey, Melissa Will Sanofi providing an update on its plans today seeing now that it's program in porter ship with GlaxoSmithKline could be human clinical trials in September and potentially in a larger phase, three efficacy study by the end of the year or early twenty twenty one now that's still a few months behind where other companies are but Sanofi, CEO pointing out that their technology is one of the only ones that's proven in. In an approved vaccine, already have a flu vaccine based on this technology separately. They also have a partnership with translate bio, and you can see that stocks up forty seven percent today an expanded partnership. They're going to work together on other vaccines to not just the Cova vaccine, and that's an Mr platform similar to Madonna's, and that's a little bit further behind the GlaxoSmithKline Sanofi vaccine so Sanofi. They're having two different Cova. Tracks ongoing. Meanwhile, the first efficacy trials in the United States those thirty thousand person trials expected to start in July from dern and Pfizer AstraZeneca close on their heels, potentially starting July or August with their trial Johnson and Johnson expected in September and then of course as we mentioned gs K.. Sanofi at the end of the year, so these big companies all gearing up to start these large scale efficacy studies within weeks already. What is the earliest projection by accompany MAG for back backseat hitting the market or getting FDA approval? Well we've seen from some companies like Astra Zeneca. Could deliver this vaccine by October if things go well, FIS has made similar projections, but today Dr Fao. She was testifying on the hill. He reiterated the end of Twenty Twenty early twenty twenty one time line for the earliest, these vaccines could be ready. It's all going to depend upon the rate of infection. In these large-scale efficacy efficacy trials because the more infection there is the faster they will prove that they work

"Slipped the surly bounds of birth. To that's the face of God is the way at ended speaking of the astronauts who died and it was it was. It was the moment of the Reagan presidency that I most vividly remember because she expressed the feeling of sadness and mourning and shocked at that that so many Americans at all of us really were feeling and he did it so so brilliantly and made a feel better and and of course there was nothing of that from from president trump. There was. There was more self-centered tweeting and and it's just it's sad we're having to cope with this on our own and we don't have a leader now who who can help us get through this moment. Jill Colvin talk about this executive order of tomorrow that the White House as teased out. I understand since we've been on the air. The Washington Post is out with some reporting details that they've been able to gather but as a practical matter. What power would the president have executive order or not over a private entity light twitter on? I've been speaking experts about this all day. And the president has his very limited power here. It's not like the president can snap his fingers and shut down. The Internet can shutdown social media. Just because he's angry. That twitter a decided to fact check one of his posts. Yeah there's possible. Legislative action could be taken by Congress on potentially to set up some kind of rules that would impact you know various social media sites. But it's very clear that what the president is trying to do here is to lash out at twitter to try to threaten them here to put some pressure on them but it also very much feels like a distraction tactic you know. I don't think we can say nuff. Today is the day that the country reached this incredibly grim milestone and the president didn't address it at all. You know I was not on the trip with him today but I was at the White House as he was leaving as he was returning shouting questions at him asking him about it. We didn't hear a single acknowledgement from him. All we heard was that statement via a person speaking on his behalf remind. I WANNA play for you. A bit of Dr Fao On the topic of wearing a mask in public we're very aware of insensitive to the need to try and make those steps towards reopening. But there are certain things that you can do and still do as you reopening. One of them is wearing a mask. I wear it for the reason that I believe it is affecting. I WANNA make it be a symbol for people to see. That's the kind of thing you should be doing and exactly. How frustrating has this topic Ben for you and a subset of that? How frustrating for you that. It has become for better or worse some kind of political symbol in a lot of places. Here'S THE PROBLEM BRIAN. Wherever there are mixed messages in. We're getting big mixed messages on masks from our president to end up from the medical establishment in from the C. C. N. from from bounty. Everybody's saying something different.
Fauci Says US Death Toll Is Likely Higher
"The Corona Virus death-toll here in the United States is down more than eighty. Three thousand people almost one point four million cases. Globally there are no more than four point three million cases and almost three hundred thousand deaths but tonight sources telling CNN that the trump administration that serious senior trump administration officials are questioning the accuracy of the death toll and whether the number is actually being inflated just yesterday on the other hand Dr Anthony Fauci told US lawmakers. The death toll is almost certainly higher higher. What's being reported but this coming Sunday almost all U s states will be reopened at least to some extent at the same time. Washington D. C. is among jurisdictions extending. Stay at home. Orders and states including South Dakota Delaware and Arkansas are serious are seeing serious corona virus cases right now on the rise us go straight to the White House right now. Our chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta. Joining US JIM. A grim new death toll and frightening new projections but the president and his team at least some members of his team don't necessarily believe all the numbers that's right well. The tug of war has begun inside the trump administration over whether the US is over counting the number of dead from the corona virus. Well aware that the president's reelection prospects are tied to his handling of the pandemic pro trump forces are attacking. Dr Anthony Fauci. Who has advocated caution in confronting the virus in control of the corona virus? Message coming from the White House. President trump is giving the administration pat on the back for the US response to the pandemic with the enormous weight of the pandemic hanging over the White House. Sources Tell C. N. Administration officials are questioning the accuracy of the corona virus death toll in the US and whether the number of dead is being over counted but that would fly in the face of testimony from top administration health expert. Dr Anthony Found. She who said deaths are likely being undercounted as some residents and hard hit New York died at home and we're never counted as cove in one thousand nine fatalities so direct. Answer to your question. I think you are correct at the number is likely higher. I don't know exactly. What was that tire? But almost certainly is higher. The president suggested. New York's number of dead was too high last month. I see this morning. Where New York edit three thousand deaths because they died and then now saying rather than it was a heart attack? They're saying it was a heart attack caused by this trump allies on Fox News zeroed in on found she. As an obstacle to reopening the country blasting the doctors cautious approach to the pandemic. Is this the Guy? You want to Chore Chart The Future Of the country. Maybe not this is a very serious matter. The decisions were making right now twenty.

The Internet Has a Crush on Dr. Fauci
"It just kind of started as a joke where we would send each other pictures of doctor and sort of try to comfort each other because we were all getting pretty stressed out. I don't know I just felt like some of the stuff we were sending. Each other in our group chat was really really good content. I guess we were like editing. Some of his photos and we had. I don't know we're just admiring him. We should put this out there and kind of see I felt that other people might feel similarly. In mid March the three scientists started a twitter account at FAO CI Fan. Almost every tweet is a photo of Dr Faucher sometimes overlaid with heart emojis and accompanied by a funny admiring comment. For instance are pinch tweet on our profile right now is just photo of Dr Fao. G says if you don't have a crush on this man do you even care about public health and that was just like some random thought I had and I was like that would be a good tweet. The twitter account immediately started wrecking followers. We would text each other constantly. Like Oh my God we made it to one hundred two hundred five hundred like we would text each other like so in shock. Oh Yeah we were shocked. I really didn't expect it to go anywhere at that was gonna be just between like the three of us but Yeah I just happened to end up this way. How many followers are you up to at this point right now? We have almost seventeen thousand. The speed with which this twitter account has gained ground to me indicates that this there's a much broader fandom surrounding Dr vouching than than just you know the science community I think so too. I mean. My mom has a crush on him though. She is a nurse so she's kind of tangentially related to the science community but yeah she just thinks he's the cutest thing so wait. I'm sorry I feel like I need to address this. Okay you share a crush with your mom right now. Yeah Dr Found Cheese that bringing you closer like is that Nice. Oh yeah if he's on the screen she'll scream at me Sarah doctor on TV. And she's she followed the twitter and she likes to look at it. She doesn't have twitter works so she gets confused. Some OF THE POST. But Yeah my mother for example. She is a housewife. And she's from Vietnam. She doesn't speak that much English but every time she sees him on. Tv She just says she really likes him. She likes his energy. She's like when I hear him talk. He brings out simple facts. It's easy to understand feel comfortable and I've had people like friends where I've never mentioned this twitter. But they've mentioned to me so they found or twitter organically and they say and I say oh I run. That's really my dad follows and he really enjoys it. That's true just to be clear. Do you guys think he's hot Low Key yeah I mean for an older guy for sure. Am I alone here guys? Is anyone else going to chime in back back me up? Yeah he's not. He's not bad looking well some of the pictures. It really conveys like his personality. If you've ever seen an interview with him or seen him talk at the podium. You're having the natural course of outbreak trying to peek at a high level. He's not like everybody else. He's not this STOIC. Okay we're reading off the facts. You know he really wants people to understand. And I think that that's something that really appealed to me. We also were looking at like older pictures of him and it really shows like throughout the well. Yeah we have a post where we said like glow up and we show a picture from when he was first. Appointed as director of NAIAD. Yeah of Naiad and then or more recent photo maybe ten or fifteen years ago and he looks great. I mean it's like identical. Almost we have so many photos of Dr Fao. G saved to our phones. You wouldn't believe it. Tiffany Sarah and Leeann say Dr Cheese appeal isn't just about his looks though for me the A thing in affection I have for is more like a because he's a fellow scientists and I really appreciate that and he's from NIH so I think comes from a special position in my heart for me personally. How about you tiffany. Oh no I agree. I think it's part of it. Is that we value science communication. And it's like he really brings to the and that adds so much to our crush. If you
Your biggest questions about coronavirus, answered
"My name is Margot and I'm a college student George Washington. This is Bryce wild at a Toronto question for you. Dr Gupta is as cases of cove in nineteen have skyrocketed in the United States and around the world. I've getting a ton of questions from you about the virus. You've left me messages. You emailed so in this episode. I'm going to answer some of them. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent this is Rhona virus fact versus fiction question one if a person gets the corona virus and it's a mild case and they recover does that person than have immunity from disease in the future. This is a really important question. There were early reports in Japan and China of people becoming reinfected but researchers looked into that and they think that wasn't actually what was happening. It's possible that those people never fully cleared the virus in some people. The virus can stay in the body even after they're no longer showing symptoms. I wanted to be sure this so during our CNN. Townhall I asked Dr Anthony. Fauci the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. And this is what he said. If this virus acts like any other virus that we've had any experience with once you get infected and recover from that infection. Your body will mount the response that will protect you from re exposure and re challenge with that exact virus a few get infected with the novel Corona Virus. And you recover. You can be pretty certain that you're protected against reinfection. Now there's no definitive study on this but dr FAO. She has been dealing with viruses his entire professional life. I believe him when he says it's very unlikely that you'll get the virus again. My Name Is Jasmine. And my question for you is can young people get really sick from the virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention came out with a report last week that showed young adults between the ages of twenty and forty four. Were making up twenty percent of corona virus hospitalizations and almost half the patients who are admitted to the ICU. Were adults under the age of sixty four now. It didn't say whether those patients had any underlying risks so it's not clear if these young adults were more vulnerable to the infections than others. The risk of dying is still much higher in older people but this new study is important because it shows that adults of all ages are at risk of getting really sick. How long are you contagious? If you've recovered from the virus this one is a case by case basis the CDC guidelines. Say That if you're not showing symptoms like a cough or fever and if you've tested negative on at least two consecutive tests taken a day apart then you're not at risk of infecting others now if you've been in self-isolation at home you should consult your doctor before you make any decisions to come out of isolation and start interacting with anyone else husband and I have a son sixteen month old and we were going to start trying for a second one in April and we are wondering if there's a good reason for us to delay trying to get pregnant. This is a tough question. That ultimately has to be your decision. Let me tell you what I know at this point. It's not clear that pregnant women have a higher risk of getting sicker from the corona virus. We also don't know if it would cause problems during the pregnancy affect the baby but we do know that pregnant women are more vulnerable to other respiratory illnesses like the flu. There was a recent small study of nine. Women were infected with the virus and none of their babies were affected by it should ibuprofen and anti-inflammatories in general be avoided if you have corona virus. I've heard this question a lot. And there's some merit to this concern. Anti-inflammatories can sometimes suppress your immune system the FDA says they're not aware of any evidence saying that Ibuprofen makes Corona virus symptoms worse. But it can reduce your ability to fight off an infection for healthy people.

"So congressman the first thing I wanNA talk to you about obviously is the corona virus. If I were to have thought that we would be in this place even just a month ago. I'm pretty up to date on the news. And when we started to hear about corona virus it just felt like it was so far away that it could never touch us and now every aspect of life in America has changed in ways that most of us just could not have imagined so. Just walk us through your thoughts on the federal government's response thus far. Well I think you're absolutely right. The speed at which this has moved has been just breathtaking. And I think we're all trying to come to grips with what it means in the near term what it means in the long term for the country in terms of the response we lost precious time frankly while the administration tried to downplay the significance of this even when it became quite apparent that we were not going to be able to keep this virus out of the country. That was never a practical idea. We could try to limit our exposure. But it was going to come here. We lost very important. Time in developing tests and distributing them widely and being able to essentially surveilled this virus where it was and do so at a time. I think when it was very important to try to minimize the spread. That's time we'll never get back and I think that for quite a while the president to use this as more of a public relations crisis than a health crisis Those days are now over but we have a lot of catching up to do and and sadly taught a time. Now in the Congress. We moved to pass a couple bills in rapid succession to try to surge resources to hospitals and clinics to try to speed the development of a vaccine to try to make sure in the second bill that we provided for paid sick. Leave that we've provided extended unemployment compensation food for kids. That would normally get their food at school and other really key emergency measures but even those are really a down payment on what's necessary to address both the health crisis and the verging economic crisis. Talking to Dr Peter Hotel has he is most concerned with the fact that regardless of people's ages it seems like those in the healthcare system are getting hit as hard as someone say past seventy. There's been a couple of ER doctors that are now on respirators. And they're in their forties or fifties. That's not supposed to have them to learn their seventies. There's so much that they don't know but what he said was in. This is what I wanted to pass on to you is he said the government needs to put together some plan for convalescent antibody therapy for our first responders and our doctors and basically what that is patients who cover from Cova nineteen. They develop antibodies to the virus. And those anybody can be collected from a blood donation of a recovered patient and then processed and then turned around either as there be for potentially sick patients or as temporary preventative care for first responders or frontline healthcare workers. And it's a therapy. That's over a hundred years old and was used with success during the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic so I wanted to pass that onto you convalesce. An antibody therapy. He thinks it needs to start happening right now as they're working for the vaccine whoever that makes a great deal of sense and that's something. I will look into immediately. I would hope and presume that are out of government in terms of the administration and our healthcare. Experts are already pencilling out and planning this. Let's not take anything for granted these days absolutely true. So what does it feel like in Congress right now I mean? Is there a sense of urgency and just the functionality of how Congress works I mean? I've walked those halls? You guys are in very close proximity to one another in your offices and with your staff. What's going on in Congress right now? There's a real sense of urgency. We're obviously hearing a great deal from our constituents our neighbors our families our friends and we're particularly concerned with taking every measure. We can't flatten this curve. And do it. We can't push up good information. That's why really eager to participate in your podcast. The more good information we can get out there. The more that people can take steps on their own to mitigate the spread of the more weekend relieve some of the enormous pressure and strain that has been placed on our healthcare system and save lives. But also you know. All the members are deeply concerned about the economic impacts of closing down all restaurants and bars. In movie theaters. And places where people congregate obviously. It's impacting anyone connected with those industries in any way shape or form or those that are the customers and the customers dry up those businesses dry up and so I think there's also a sense of urgency to deal with the economic impacts. I think that'll be the subject of the next big bill. Coming out of Congress and many of us are advocating that we send cash to each and every American immediately to help get them through this difficult time that help keep struggling businesses. Afloat WanNa make sure that the small business administration is fully funded and can provide emergency loans to small businesses but in terms of the mechanics at the capital. We are doing as much teleworking as possible. We're trying to be a good example as well but there are certain things that we're going to need to be present for. We're GONNA need to come in. I think in vote on a new package even now the package that passed the house. We're still running into difficulties among some of the members with that. And if that's so foreshadow of future difficulties where one or two members can hold up Relief for an entire nation than we're going to have to make sure that we're all hands on deck if that's necessary to steer the country through this and how about the White House. Do you feel like they're working with Congress in a nonpartisan way. I'm not even GONNA say bipartisan. Because this should be zero. Partisan or does it still feel like there's headbutting speaker? Pelosi and MNUCHIN administration have been able to negotiate with each other and I think that the experts at the agencies people like Dr Fao Cheer Providing Their Best Advice and recommendations You know the president is as he will always be for the president's always about him and that makes it very difficult to negotiate with their two. Yes when someone's predominant conservatives for themself but we hope that he rises to the occasion they're certainly. I think a different tone in the last day or two in the press conference although he still has a year to lash out at others and the fights that he's been provoking with state governors are very. I think that mental to getting an appropriate federal and state and local response.

I've been doing this for many years. I started off with marathons and ten K.'s. And then just running for fun and then I'm still doing it now because it's healthy. I love the idea that because I I saw it. It was a tweet that went semi viral and it was saying that during your fight against HIV and age. You're running seven miles a day and during your fight against Corona virus even at age seventy nine. You're doing three and a half miles a day. Do you think at any point. The viruses are like feeling a little bit less than because you. They can't even take up all of your energy. Your like I need I'll fight. Hiv for twenty hours. And I'll still run seven miles you know and I'll come back for more like your superman. Well I don't think so but thank you for will be thinking about that. I like that don't they can't. You're basically laying them off. Yeah you're like Mj AFTER A game shooting. Thousand free throws. That's what you're doing. You fight him all day. And then you're like what what's still need to burn off a calories here but nothing but net one suggestion for you and you can feel free to tell me. I'm an idiot or no. This is illegal or whatever problem going to have with it but I think that you should actually lie to the American public and say that we can spread this disease to our dogs because if as as bad as it is and as bad as even think about Americans would probably take it more seriously or at least some people would if they think that they can go home and get their puppy sick. Well you know there has been a report of isolating virus dog. I'm not sure it makes the dog sick. But you know if you protect everybody that you care for including your dogs. Yes okay. That sounded to me like. Don't get your dog sick. Stay home all right. Well Dr Franchi thank you so much. I feel I actually do feel. I think there's a lot of anxiety going around and I feel a lot better talking to someone like you and knowing that you're out there you know working for for the American people and we're GONNA kick the shit out of this virus.

"America with testing. We have a tremendous testing setup. We don't have enough test today To meet what we anticipate will be the demand. Dr Fao Cheat said earlier this week. That the lag intesting was in fact a failing. Do you take responsibility for that. No I don't take responsibility at all. Top officials are warning that the spread of Corona virus in the. Us appears inevitable. No I don't think it's inevitable. I don't think it's inevitable. Thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by sitting around and even going to work. If you're sick stay home. You don't know what you have stay home. Vaccine is coming along well and speaking to the doctors. We think this is something that we can develop fairly rapidly -bility of a vaccine even to scale it up. You're talking about you year and a half and you know in April who supposedly died with this. Virus Reacts Very Poorly J. Heat and dies. There is no evidence that this virus will fizzle out when warm weather approaches. Now the Democrats are politicizing.

Are we doing enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
"Joined by. Dr Ezekiel Emanuel former Obama. White House Health Policy Advisor. He's Vice Provost Global Initiatives University of Pennsylvania and Dr Peter Hotels Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine Doctor Manual. When we start with you. Where do you see us right now? Are we doing enough in terms of large scale social disruption and changes to slow the transmission of this epidemic? So first of all. I've been saying for several weeks now that it's going to get worse before it gets better. Parsley it's GonNa get worse because we have testing. That's just going to show us how prevalent the illness is. It's also getting worse because we know we have more community acquired infections as I mentioned to someone today. You know one week ago. We weren't even talking about new Rochelle and now new. Rochelle is a major topic in New York. And that's a lockdown and if we focus on new Rochelle without thinking about all the other places that this virus is maybe Washington. Dc maybe the suburbs of Baltimore. Who knows where the problem is? We need a more systematic less uneven response. That has to be pretty uniform. Because just 'cause we're seeing it new Rochelle doesn't mean Rochelle's the only place in New York that Scott and that response does have to include things like much more prevalent testing so we really have a handle on who's got it and who doesn't and a really good model is South Korea if you look at their trends you can see that. They're beginning to bend in South Korea. We also do need to inform people. We use the term social distancing like everyone knows what it means. It's not immediately obvious to people what that entails and how much you need to be separate from people explain to what should people know about but a large part of it. You people have come up with all these numbers no more than one hundred people to meet no more. The issue is density. How close are you to people? How easy is it for the droplets to spread? How much are you sort of packed in light sardines or not and that real? I mean that's a physical thing That is really important and I do think we probably need to educate people to minimize the. They're our contact and to stay home more. You can go out where there's no one else if you're going walking in the woods or something or going to a place where there are other people But I do think Restricting how we move around is going to be important I will note that not every but most of the Ivy League schools now for example colleges mine included. We're going online. The second half of the semester is all going to be online. Students aren't going to be in. Dormitories accepts students. That can go back to their home country and still complete the semester. So you are seeing a lot of action. But it's not concerted and that's what it's not systematic and that's what's bothering me Dr Hotels. We've been checking with you throughout the unfolding of the goal pandemic and I'm curious. Are we learning more about the virus itself about the basics about the transmission rate? Which seems to be maybe lower than at first. We thought the fatality rate the incubation period. Where is our knowledge right now about this so the transmission rate still seems to be? Pretty High Dr Fao. She mentioned. It's probably a significantly higher than the influenza as well as the mortality rate. But the you know just to echo and reinforce some of the things zeke Doctor Emmanuel was was saying we've learned a few things from a recent analysis. My colleague Mark Lipchitz sit at Harvard School of Public Health Chan School of Public Health together with a student a doctoral student. Ruan Lee didn't analysis of the Chinese cities in terms of how severe the epidemic is with the extreme example being Wuhan rare nine thousand people wound up in and severely ill with two thousand in the ICU versus city. Like Long Joe where there was only twenty a big difference right and it looked like it's primarily to do to how quickly you got on top of things after sustained community transmission started. So they let it go for six weeks. Before they implemented aggressive control and testing whereas in Guangzhou were the only at twenty cases one week. What's the lesson learned from the United States We're now about three weeks into this in terms of sustained community transmission. We had our first case of community transmission around the end of April so subtract a week before then. So we're getting to the point where because we're not doing adequate diagnostic testing and implementing those very important control measures. That seek pointed out. We're in a situation. Where we could risk being closer to Wuhan and Guangzhou and and we do we. We can't be there so now is a very critical period over the next couple of weeks where we have to be very aggressive about closing down major venues. We just this Houston. Today with the Rodeo was a tough decision but was the right decision that we're going to have to do this all over the country right now and the reason is this because if we miss that opportunity we then have. Our new problem becomes surge capacity hospitals. Where we're not gonNA have enough beds. We're not GONNA have enough into ventilators. We don't want to go in that direction. So now's now czar. Big Schnauzer going to be our last chance. We've already missed that in over the last few weeks. Can I reemphasize something? Peter says which is so in the entire United States. We have about eight hundred thousand hospital beds a little under eight hundred thousand hospital beds. In the entire United States we have under seventy thousand adult intensive care unit. Beds we have about sixty five thousand ventilators with the strategic supply. I've heard that it goes up slightly under one hundred thousand. That's our maximum capacity in the country at the moment if you imagine that even two percent of the population gets the corona virus and we have about six percent who are seriously. Ill GonNa need a respirator. We've exhausted all that supply. Just for those patients. Forget the heart attack patients. Forget the patients who need it for any other reason and I think what Peter said is exactly right we probably have missed two or three turns over the last few weeks where we could have gotten things down and just focusing on the hot spots. Seattle New Rochelle. I think is not. We need a much more systematic countrywide approach so that we don't overwhelm the healthcare system. Which already you know doesn't have that much search capacity in it. Dr Hotels Final Point to you for people that are watching this I. I've struggled with this for the last three weeks right. Communicating in a way that does not induce catastrophe or panic but also is clear eyed about the risks. And I do think it's worth just going back to the distinction between your individual risk you random American one of three hundred thirty million that you will get very sick and need to be hospitalized or may as life threatening illnesses that individual risk for any given random person is probably low in the grand scheme of things and this systemic risk to the society and to the healthcare system which is extremely high at this moment. Is that a fair way of phrasing. It yeah absolutely and also remember. It's it's all about communicating. What our top priorities are in. This is what I've been disappointed about. We've lost a lot of time because of a blanket statements that are not backed by data saying this is contained. This is this is the cold. This is the flu when in fact we know that there are specific groups that are at high risk including older older individuals those with underlying disabilities and our healthcare workers. And so what I've been looking for is at the White House. Press briefings to say. Look these are four. Bit Concerns Right. These are three or four populations That were concerned about This is a why we need to get on top of this very quickly. And here's what we're doing about it and and historically the American people have responded very well to this They understood this three. Bola Zeka as we say. This is not our first Rodeo so so we know how to respond and we just need that clear kind of concise messaging right now. All right. Just had one thing to Chris. Point which is we also do know the ass for any individual. The risk is low except we do know that there are certain people and Peter Emphasize of those who are over sixty or sixty five those who have chronic illness. They are at high risk and what we have done in. This country is aggregate them in nursing homes. Those are most vulnerable people people in nursing and we really have to social distance. There reduced the number of visitors. Probably two zero. Make sure that people are counting up and taking a donning protective equipment so that we don't have that Patriot play just explode with corona virus like it did in Seattle because almost every one of them is really on the verge just like the cruise ships.

"Dr fao cheer you there oh yeah there are i'm here good to be with you is thank you kathleen sullivan professor of pediatrics at the children's hospital of philadelphia back to sullivan welcome back to science friday thank you deck to fetch everyone knows getting the flu shot is no guarantee against the flu but but we're learning that the effectiveness of the vaccine is much worse than we all think it should be something like thirty thirty four to forty percent against this year's dominance strain give us an idea why the numbers are so low well the reason is that really ira but the important thing is that we don't get a really good match to match this year that we have with the virus who the vaccine is not an optimal match when you look at the efficacy of influenza vaccines in general and you look at all the different years for the last 10 years or so the best we generally do is about sixty percent on a really really bad year we can do low with ten presented as you just heard from all colleagues that the cdc we project that is likely will be around thirty percent or so this year even though you never know for sure until the end of the year and what we really need to do when you mentioned it when you were just talking about it before we really need to get a vaccine that is making the response against the part of the virus that does not change from season to season we continually have to chase as it were is the word i use the influenza from two seasons to try and get a good match because the part of the virus that we make an immune response against generally is that part of the virus that tends to change your drift from seasontoseason or even change an awful lot when you get a brand new influenza like with a pandemic they're all parts of that virus that don't change very much from seasontoseason at all their constant parts.

"Proteins exactly the major a target of the immune response to protect eu is against the hema gluten and you get protection against other proteins on the virus such as noor amid a day sent a number of others but the main one the main target is the h or the immigration how have the last flew seasons ben compared to years before this is a a a you know a moderate to severe flu season they vary tremendously depending on the factors that at dr fao chee mentioned and i think what people have to understand about the flu vaccine is it's not like some of the vaccines we traditionally think of that chickenpox sort the measles mumps rubella which are really really effective the flu vaccine at best will reduce your chance of getting the flu often by a lot it will make the flu less severe if you get it so having gotten the flu vaccine you don't want to feel scam because hey wait i the flew it isn't a 100 percent effective dr michael oester home let me come to you generally speaking our flew season's getting better getting worse maybe that's to brought a term because we should clarify what we mean by better or worse in terms of infections or treatments or deaths but how do you view the the longer term trend of flu seasons in terms of whether we are dealing with them better or worse well first of all of the description flute uh we've had so far in the program is is very helpful i would just add one additional piece you know you've had influenza when you feel like you've been hit by a truck.

"To improve thing said dr fao she covered the idea of universal influenza vaccines if were successful there then we have a vaccine for any influenza virus on past present or future human swine dr avian derived were set in this is the kind of vaccine the who is looking for for developing countries most influenza deaths occur in developing countries in very few vaccinations occurred their the second approach is to advance these new rapid response platforms i'm gsk has a few such platform some uh one of them for example was used to make a vaccine for eight seven and nine of virus i took eight days to make that vaccine from the time the chinese posted the sequence information for the virus until it was injected into cell culture and into mice and in talking to the scientists that did that work they tell us tell me that could have done in four days because there were two as snailmail snail mail steps in in the process so i mean once we have these sorts of platforms that are working then becomes quality control release of product and the regulatory steps on that around the critical path so i think is much look forward to we just need the time and resources to make it happen so all encourage anyone in the audience to ask questions of if you have a question just raise your hand tried to get my attention um and we'll try to acknowledge you and get you on uh involved in the discussion on what we're waiting for.

"Vaccine uh for all of us from six months of age and older could get it each year still as dr valgy pointed out our current vaccines need some work this much more that we can do and they're they're different from other vaccines first of all the disease were trying to prevent is very proud went up to twenty percent of us will have an influenza infection during the course of a year secondly the viruses keep changing that's why we need a new vaccine each year and also on the efficacy is lower than for other vaccines but on dr fao cheese slide that showed the different efficacy estimates a 2014 2015 the fdc was nineteen percent but cdc tells us that year's vaccine prevented one point six million cases of influenza despite relatively low use in a low efficacy um so increased use particularly in pregnant women we heard from john barry about pregnant women being a particularly susceptible group for severe a disease so this this all helps looking forward i think at least two ways we're moving to improve things said dr fao chee covered the idea of universal influenza vaccines if we are successful there then we have a vaccine for any influenza virus on past present or future human swine derived avian derived were set in this is the kind of uh uh joe is looking for for developing countries most influenza deaths occur in developing countries in very few vaccinations says occurred dr are the second approach is to advance these new rapid response platforms gsk has a few such platforms some one of them for example was used to make a vaccine for.
