"Pods were the largest animals ever to walk on Earth. They were long necked dinosaurs. They could grow the length of three school Busses. They were so huge. The ground literally shook when they walked. Why did they have such long necks? Well in the midst of their reign, A massive volcanic eruption almost destroyed the earth, and it wiped out all plant life. Theo on Lee Dinosaur that survived were these big Sora pods. Specifically the biggest of them called use rope odds, but they were low to the ground. And tall Conifer trees were the only food that survives. You know what happened, the big dinosaurs that were low to the ground needed to reach the tree food. That was the only way they could survive. So scientists now say that as generations evolved The dinosaurs grew longer. Next. They started to be born with longer next to accommodate being able to reach the food on those trees. I'm a paleontologist. That's crazy. You, mister! All right, so step aside. Murder hornets sightings of a new invasive species. It's a snake like worm. Reported in Georgia. It's really a weird looking warm. It's got a shovel head like shovel had a garden worms known as hammerhead worms over 100 have been decided. Snake like warm can grow up to a foot long. The mouse are really weird of the hammerhead worm. They're located midway down the bottom surface at their bodies, so they're not even that the mouth isn't even on its head. Primarily on Earth worms. They're pretty nasty looking, and this is probably the strangest fact. The worm produces a tetrodotoxin. It's the same deadly neurotoxin produced by puffer fish. So pretty bizarre stuff. You can't really kill it in the way that you would normally kill a worm because it can reproduce itself. If it's cut into sections, so don't do that. Excellent. Excellent case, you misters. All right, so everybody is moving into the holiday spirit and Christmas, etcetera and just selection. No, it has been reported by Dr Anthony Fauci himself. The nation's leading infectious disease expert. Santa is immune from Cove. It 19 so he's fine. He's got magic that's going to protect him. And even though he's magically immune, he still thinks that it's important to set a good example this year and not encourage others to potentially infect others. So that's why most of those in person visits in the malls and stuff like that. He's kind of backing off on those just because he wants to set a good example, However, the North Pole does have a mask mandate. They had a couple of elves that actually did test positive. Mrs Claus has been insisting on regular testing and S O. That was a really good apparently, according to the USA today, Dr Greg Poland, director of Mayo Clinic's vaccine research group, clear that he'd just gotten off the phone with the North Pole where he spoke with them, and there have been two infections among the elves, but none of them serious. And that's just a good reminder to the elves to whether Mask and the North Pole's big enough They are actually able to convert the workshops that it is properly spaced. Excellent. Good news.

"Welcome to Mayo Clinic. Dr Halina Gonzaga will recording this broadcast on August the twenty four, th twenty twenty. You're with us again today we have Dr Greg Poland are virologist and infectious disease expert from Mayo Clinic. And today I'm really looking forward to this greg because we're going to be answering some questions from our listeners. It's great. Yes. Should be fun to find out what people want to know about. Our first question is about hand sanitizer for there's been a lot in the news about us on this. One of our listeners states that they have seen some issues with hand sanitizers that have been discussed. In the news, how do you know if one a safe? What's wrong with the ones that are out there that we're supposed to avoid and how do we know which ones they are? First of all, it might be worth saying that the best thing we can do for hand sanitation is washing with soap and water. The hand rubs or hand liquid hand sanitizers are a second best they were but they don't work well when your hands are soiled with visible dirt or have mucus on them. So it is a second best nonetheless when you're out and about you don't really have a choice. So you WanNa do is you want to select a hand sanitizer with at least sixty, ideally seventy percent ethyl alcohol, and you do not want to hand sanitizer that has methyl alcohol. Methyl alcohol is a Taxon and should not be used unfortunately what unethical Producers are doing in order to meet the demand and sell their product for hand sanitizer using methyl alcohol, which is very cheap the other thing that can fool you is that it can say ethyl alcohol. And rarely says more than that. You do not WANNA product that lists one pro panel alcohol that is also a toxin. So how would the average consumer know that you've pick up your phone? You can go to the FDA website put in the product number and boom it will tell you whether this is an approved or unapproved hand sanitizer. The other thing I want to comment on is too old hand sanitizers that do not have ethyl alcohol and they have very a winsome names herbal green. You know things like that. Those are ineffective and should not be used I'm finally why the prohibition about methyl alcohol as I mentioned, it's toxin and to unfortunate things happen. One is that little children could use enough of it to experience some symptoms of methanol poisoning but the other really unfortunate one and it seems hard to believe. But hand sanitizer is not infrequently used as an alcohol ingestion substitute among alcoholics and. When that happens that can be disastrous. I've worked enough years in emergency rooms to see what methanol poisoning can do. It can completely ruin your liver. It can cause profound CNS central nervous system side effects. So it is truly a toxin and should be avoided greg do hand sanitizers ever expire now that's a great question, and in fact, all products they do expire over time generally speaking. The ethanol based hand sanitizers have about a three year window and the reason for a why it has a three year window is that the alcohol content decreases over time and you know we've mentioned many times that we wanted a hand rubbed it has sixty to seventy percent alcohol content. Once it falls below sixty percent, it begins to lose its effectiveness. So the expiration is based on that. About three year time window I have one other question that I'd like to throw in I have seen that many of the large distilleries in the United States have volunteered to close down the production limited so that they could make hand sanitizer can people make their own hand sanitizer in their home and does the alcohol that they may have in their liquor cabinets have anything to do with it. Again, you know don't want a complete drink alcohol with hand sanitizer but you know commendable has been an and we've seen it here at Mayo Clinic of people volunteering companies volunteering to provide us with some of the ingredients that you need for a safe and effective and sanitizer, and as I say that's that's to be commended. I think the issue involves the idea that could you make your own and you can go on the Internet, FDA and others do have a recipe. In fact has a recipe for how to make your own. Hand sanitizer with ethyl alcohol kind would be in rubbing alcohol that you can buy and you can safely make your own because it. It has been a problem. Let's face it to to buy a hand sanitizer and unfortunately a number of producers have. Tripled and quadrupled the price of it. So definitely, you can do that again far better is wash your hands with soap and water. So when the liquor companies are making hand sanitizer, they're changing type of alcohol they used to reduce it will no. They're actually using an ethanol which is appropriate. They are not using methods alcohol Greg. The next listener would like to know about plastic face shields. So you know We were all told that we should be wearing masks in many communities and states have instituted. Some are regulation around wearing masks and Thera- people who are wearing the plastic face shields along with masks but also people who are just wearing the plastic facial themselves. Thinking the bats protective is just wearing the face shields acceptable or does one need to parrot with a mass and In my opinion, the face shield alone is inadequate compared to the face shield plus mass. So at Mayo Clinic is you know we are wearing when we're with patients were wearing a mask and Faye shield or some kind of eye protection the problem with a face shield and we're talking about it as it's one entity obscene many different types and therein lies the problem. But the problem with a face shield is that you still have air you're breathing in that air has to come from around or under knee the face shield. Now it's value is in reducing exposure to the larger droplets, somebody coughs or sneeze. You actually have a physical barrier for the large droplets and you have your mask underneath for the smaller and the aerosolize droplets. If. There was somebody who for some valid reason could not wear a mask. A inched yield would be better than nothing for example, but is a face shield alone of the same efficacy as face mask. The data does not support that CDC does not recommend that. So I would say, no at this point that's very helpful in this this listener indicated that there had an issue with asthma was having difficulty wearing face masks or was exempt from doing so in there are few. Individuals who have disorders where they cannot wear face masks. But in that case, one of the facials covers the mouth. I wouldn't. I wouldn't be surprised to lean it if in the evolution of face shields that we get to a point, for example, where we have a fait, she'll that goes to the ears and then goes below the Chin with cloth. That would that would in essence act as a kind of mask so that even though air is being breathed through, it would nonetheless. Filter in some in some way that there are other difficulties associated with it. Some people get headaches the thing I don't like about it and and I wear it is it is not an. You know it's a very curved piece of plastic usually and it's not optically clear it the store it's like having spectacles on were the lenses aren't quite right in distorts your vision a little bit and you know for for you and I in the medical setting having clear visions important. There's a lot of ingenuity out bear Cocaine, and I hear some things waiting to be developed there when you describe types of facials mass zone interesting to see what we see the next number of months. I say I think we could probably get there but the current administration of a shields right now I think are not sufficient, but we may get there all Gregg. The next listener wants to now if someone is exposed to cove it and they know that they have been how long do they need to self isolate and? What if they are living with other people, how do they protect those individuals and the the answer? So little bit complicated because as we've learned more the sciences changed and therefore the recommendations have been updated to reflect that. So I'll try to break it down to kind of three clear categories. Number One if you've been exposed to somebody with Kobe, you need to self quarantine for fourteen days after your last exposure. If you had exposure to somebody you went into quarantine and then got exposed again you start the clack over fourteen days. One of the things that's changed is will what about travel particularly international travel? The CDC dropped the requirement for fourteen days of. Quarantine so and then just refers to local state or community rules while respecting masking physical distancing, etc.. Now, this is the tougher one in some ways after you have recovered from then. Okay. So you've had co bid and you you. It's now been ten days or more since your symptoms have appeared, you have no fever end those symptoms are improving. You don't have to quarantine after that ten day.

"Helena's Alka. I'm pleased to say that I have with me again today Dr Greg Poland virologist and infectious disease expert at Mayo Clinic. Thanks for being here Greg. Fun To be with you again. Well, I am looking forward to hearing what you have to say to us today the news keeps coming out we are in the US now at about five and a half million cases with over one hundred and seventy thousand deaths. We still have prominent outbreaks particularly in Florida Texas along the southern and southwest rim schools are starting back and we've heard of outbreaks at the college level, the school level most recently l. a. county, which is the think the second largest school. District. In the US decided to cancel any kind of in person classes as they try to get a hold on this but there's something interesting to note New York in New York. City in particular have kept cases suppressed below one percent. Now, this is really remarkable but observers are noticing that because of what New York City went through they don't deny the seriousness of this people take it very seriously. They're wearing masks they're maintaining distance they closed you know bars and things like that were there there are known. Places where the virus easily transmits and it works and somehow it's been difficult to convince our culture society that strict adherence to those things in toto that is doing all of them together is a very, very powerful antidote to this virus months ago I had actually heard that when Amazon boxes come to the house, you should be careful because the virus can live. On surfaces for a period of time, and then there's been concern within some food packaging plants about on the spread of the virus perhaps not just in food but the packaging and I'm wondering what can you tell us about how to handle food packaging is that something we should be concerned about should be wearing gloves to the grocery store should wiping off our groceries. Tell us about that and I maybe just a little bit of a primer here. So the fact that you can find virus IPC are doesn't mean. So to speak that it's live virus, it just means elements of the genetic material or there. The second thing is that doesn't mean that it's infectious virus heart of what infects us is the. them the amount of virus. So for example, it's highly doubtful whether one particle a virus could actually cause infection. No one knows what at inoculate size is. All right. So what what has been done is a number of studies showing that you can find the genetic material. For days sometimes, even weeks on various kinds of hard surfaces or external surfaces. The ones that are at risk are where there's high knock ulum size I go. And then I grabbed a door not in your right behind me and grab it. We think that's logically a risky thing because we know with other respiratory viruses like influenza that you can get in, you can infect other people in get infected that way no one has proven that with food or with external packaging that's different than the hard surface in A. Hospital Room, for example, where that innocuous size might be very high if it if it housed patient. So so first of all I think we can say there's not been a single demonstration that viruses on food, Ben Infect somebody or on a package than infect somebody you've been giving us updates all along on the vaccines that are being developed can. You tell us how the vaccine trials that are in phase three are going right now, the phase three trials that are occurring in the US have enrolled slower than than thought at least last week Remember they have to enroll thirty thousand they had enrolled about forty five hundred now only roughly about fifty nine I think it was of the eighty four. Clinical trial sites had opened as of a week or two ago. So I expect that that will accelerate a little more. But when you think about it, those I participants that enrolled, let's say early August you have to wait thirty days than they get another dose two weeks after that, they get a blood draw than all of those hundreds of thousands of. Laboratory assays have to be done. The data has to be analyzed, etc. You're talking well into twenty twenty one before those data would be available could be looked at by the FDA and by expert advisers. So I I think realistically and which said it all along and less another mechanism is used. If we go through full licensure, I don't think we should be looking for a vaccine for another six months and for some people because of the time it takes to manufacture doses a year even i. had shared with that. I had seen an interesting study done which I thought was actually rather well done. Where they compared masks in how effective they are waiting for that. Beck, seen that unfortunately is taking longer than we wish and I, had read about four different types of masks and their their efficacy, and I was hoping that you and I could just talk a little bit about them today and I have a gainer on myself right now. So if you can start by telling us about gators and these. are very lightweight to have their kind of stretchy cotton. If you held them up to the light, you can see through it and what they found is that really did not decrease the number of large viral particles by very much and in fact, if found something worrisome and that is by spelling the particle through the material, it actually served to take the big particles and fracture them into more dangerous smaller particles. So these mass, don't prevent you from expelling virus, and in fact, make it riskier for other people next they tried bandannas a double layer of Bandanna that decrease the number of particles I think by about twenty thirty percent something like that, and then this is the most common type of Massa. Mass. Mass, that's a three layer paper mask or so-called medical or surgical masks. Those are surprisingly good worn properly, they're not perfect. There is no even the end ninety five is not.

"For Kobe. I read this somewhere and I'm wondering. Yeah, it's funny that you asked me that question. Well. You know there's an interesting report in one of the dermatology journals. It came out late last week showing that in fact male pattern baldness. was in in their various small series, a risk factor for more severe disease. Now I suspect that this has to do more with being male or male hormones, because the interesting thing is that they also found this true for older women that we're experiencing more of a male pattern, baldness baldness, because of elevated Andrew Janik Hormone, so there is something to this simile with blood type. For example we've heard about group aid being higher risk than than Grupo. These are lots of individually small factors, including jeans in Baseline State of health, etc.. Even age that together determine and I wish we had an equation, but we don't yet that determine. What is your risk for having severe disease? If you were to get infected, and even having said that as as we all know, and it's it's. It's very unfortunate. You know we see young healthy kids in young healthy adults I'm getting very complicated, even fatal disease, so the what we know about the risk factors we know about don't explain all of it so that's why I still tell people you know. Universal precautions are still in order here this is. Is a serious disease and one thing we can talk about. Maybe at another time is emerging evidence that even people that have mild disease may still have evidences of some permanent damage to their body organs, so I think we have to take this and we are very very seriously. Oh, that's interesting. We'll put that on the docket for the next visit that we have well. It has been a real delight today to have infectious disease and biologist.

"Count twists interviews since this. This is all begun and even in the last couple of months. I I'm sure you've lost count now but I'm wondering what is the most common question that you get asked in interviews? Probably the first one I did. His and people can hang their head and say. When is this going to all be over? And I don't know the answer to that question if I'm honest about my my guesstimate. And it's just that a guest in that no earlier than the winter of twenty twenty one and then people will tell me about symptoms. They've had and will ask me. Do you think I had Kobe? And you know the answer to that is evolving. Because what we're learning. Is that a lot of people have been infected in. Don't know it or had very minimal symptoms that they didn't attribute odd to Cogan. What's the evidence for me saying? That will just recently in. L. A. In California. They've done widerspread testing. I think that's about seven hundred thousand people something like that. Lo and behold about four plus percent of them are testing positive so by antibody tests meaning that they had been infected and as we talked about the numbers are probably even higher than that because the serology tests are not quite where they need to be and I think in in various locations in the US. We're GONNA find out that a lot of us probably were infected and really didn't know or attributed to you know a flu or something like that that would be very valuable to know it would be very reassuring and it would be he piece of how we in. A careful staged way as back into normal operations. Some sobering information actually. Is there anything else that you'd like to share with us before we go today? Greg you know I think the one thing we've touched on it. Sometimes that would courage all of our listeners. To as we all are learned from this and that is we are a bit cavalier in our culture about respiratory diseases. It's just the flu or well. Just have a little cough and people go to work. Go to school sick. They visit people in nursing homes in the hospitals. When they're ill. I think one of the things that I'm hoping will come out of this is that people will take respiratory diseases end of vaccines that we have available for them much more seriously and will be a more zealous in in guarding one another against the widespread transmission of these diseases. These masks might be here to stay for a while. Well thank you very much Dr Greg Poland virologist an infectious disease expert from Mayo Clinic.

"Welcome to the Mayo Clinic. Dr Holy Magazine Guy. We're recording this episode on April the Twenty Second Twenty twenty and half with me again today Dr Greg Poland. Who's an infectious disease by polity expert from the Mayo Clinic? Thanks for being here Dr Poland. Whose ENJOY IT? I wonder if you'd start out today by just sharing as the latest numbers that you're hearing what's going on with the pander well worldwide word about point six million cases on Monday when we spoke just a couple of days ago it was about two point four so this is still a rapidly moving a pandemic in the US were it at just about eight hundred twenty thousand cases we were at seven hundred sixty five thousand on Monday. We have about a little over forty five thousand deaths on Monday. Were we were at about forty thousand deaths so while those numbers are still high one is beginning to sense that they're plateauing and as we talked about this lag period between when you get exposed than when you get sick enough to be counted can be fourteen to twenty eight days or so so we're just starting to see that plateau in the hard part will be the patience to continue this for perhaps another month or so. You talked a little bit about the numbers and it's the still were still seen infections. Does living in households convey any risk for transmission. What do we know about that since? We've all been social distancing concentrating infocomm that somebody there was a study just released from from China. That was a household transmission. Study they And I'll just look at the numbers here they had One hundred five people that were infected three hundred ninety two household members. All who were tested with. Are you look at the secondary attack? It's it was seventeen percent adult so in other words. If I'm sick what's the risks that my wife or another adult in the household would get infected? It was about seventeen percent about four percent for kids. If that index case quarantine themselves with all the measures we talked about household. Transmission was zero so it really works the court. The other side of that coin was well. What about the spouse where there'd be you the most intimate contact that attack rate was about twenty eight percent it? These measures are important. I know sometimes I get questions from people saying well. If somebody in my household has it is. Isn't it inevitable? As a matter of fact you can drive that two zero and that's a remarkable things speaking to the power of hand washing respiratory etiquette an appropriate isolation warranty. Well that is really amazing. Because if you think about all the surfaces that are shared in a household etc maybe it gives us hope for going back to work in doing other activities proper precautions. At some point there is such a dizzying array of Tessa for Cobra. Nineteen being discussed in the media and otherwise both tests for. I haven't now and serology tests for did I ever have it. There's talk about household kind of tests that can be done at home. Is this likely to become a reality and would help with the testing numbers that were seen? Were whether it's just not enough capability to test. Will you know you've you've put your finger on a an absolutely key issue in terms of how do we intelligently reopen and how would we intelligently reclosed this fall which many of us think is is like and a key to that is going to be testing? Otherwise we have no real idea of the amount of community transmission. That's occurring. The problem is in the rush to get these tests. Out The FDA has issued emergency use authorizations and what that means is that they haven't gone through the usual very careful clinical testing that we would normally put a test. That's going to be used in humans through so Some studies have suggested that the sensitivity and what that means is if I actually am in fact a new. Do this test army. What's the chance that it will be positive? Might only be about fifty percent five. Oh a flip of a coin and so I think before. We really have widespread testing. We're going to need assays that have been validated. And where we know Are they going to be appropriate and give us a good intelligence? The other tests that that was just released which is an interesting. One is the idea of allowing people to have it home. A Swab test so this is not have been infected. It's M. I. Infected now. I'm in what they're proposing lease. This company that's released it is to put. What looks like a q tip gist into the first half inch or inch of the of bananas and doing that on both sides. We have no idea how good dad ask say. Is We know that. In general you have to do a nasal torrential swab which goes up quite a bit into the nose in nasal passages It's uncomfortable. Somebody's unlikely to do that to themselves. On on their own and they're gonNA start with using it in healthcare workers first responders. So it's it's something that holds promise but I think we need to see the data a little while ago. We were hearing an awful lot about hydroxy Clark wine. And his sister Maya San in even president trump was talking about it on some of his Daily updates So much so that here mail. We had to put limits on how people prescribe those medications when a to preserve the supply. What do we know at this point about whether those are effective for treating who've nineteen but let me make a comment because I think it it pertains to so much surrounding this pandemic there is of course immense pressure and desire to get things out quickly whether it's a drug cast of vaccine and one understands that in has great empathy for People? Healthcare workers etc. Who who need to know. Want to know but there is no substitute for careful patients of scientific work. Let's just take this example of hydroxy chloroquine and reminds me a lot of pressure public and otherwise as you said to do something in us this. We now have to create good studies. That are showing one study done in in the Va that there was no benefit to this. Another study from France showing there was no benefit to either one or combination of those in fact evidence of harm in it as you and I know some of those drugs can do things to the heart rhythm like prolonged some of the electrical activity and actually cause harm. If they're not monitor Again I think this is really important because it says now when we actually done. The clinical trials is all this enthusiasm warranted and more and more data is accumulating to say no and in fact there might be Har- now other anti-viral drugs like rim. This aveer which we talked about it is a is a different story. We have some encouraging news. There look forward to hearing Morris Develops WE'VE HEARD ABOUT RISKS FOR PATIENTS? And what makes covert worse for? Some patients perhaps male different age groups that Cetera. Are there other risk factors that are becoming known that affect Either the development of Cova nineteen or how the the vitalize progresses illness for those patients that scenario where inside fourteen fifteen weeks. We've developed a lot of knowledge so I think everybody's familiar with the fact that older age heart disease lung disease diabetes things like that are risk. Factors We have not seen pregnancy. Be A risk factor for complicated disease. I have to say that's a surprise. Given how pregnancy is very much a risk factor for influenza. Smoking is turning out. Of course no surprise there to be a risk factor but a couple of things that are a little bit interesting here and that we don't have an answer for one is that males of any age seemed to have more severe disease than female so I mentioned of any age because it's not simply hormonally driven. There's something else happening there. In our our host genes. The other thing is that obesity. Now we did know that from from flu. So it's not that much of a surprise but obesity is turning out to be a risk factor that may increase your risk of severe disease by as much as two fold so we're beginning to get a more and more complete picture the other thing that has just recently has been reported is about five cases of Gaon Beret. This isn't a sending paralysis. This can happen with a variety of viral and parasitic infections. It can happen from influenza. And now we're starting to see some cases as a result of Kobe. Nineteen not very many but nonetheless case reports here and there there's a report that came out of South Korea about one hundred and forty patients. I believe who had been tested positive with Cova. Nineteen men seem to recover and now again tested positive. What did you make of that? You can imagine the the concern that this is raced in. It's a very complicated issue. I think probably one of two things is happening. One is maybe just very ability in testing. I do not believe that these people have recovered. And then that quickly been reinfected that would not be consistent with everything we know about the human immune system so it's either variability in testing or one part of that can be remembered that the RTP CRI say the diagnostic essay is just detecting pieces of the virus. It doesn't mean that there is virus in there that's so to speak live and capable of infecting somebody else it could be residual pieces of the virus that are there as part of your recovery on so what they're doing and it's an appropriate step though as you might imagine has some risk associated with a is there actually culturing that virus in human cells in a test tube to see are we actually seeing live virus or just these pieces. The same thing has happened in regard to checking stool specimens. Some people are shedding virus for as long as thirty days. Does that mean they're infectious? We don't know and in fact. Some countries some locales in the US. The country of France and others are actually going to waste water and sewage treatment plants and looking for evidence of the virus. And what I've noticed. Is that this is the other side of the disease is before people have actual symptoms. They can detect at the population level virus in the wastewater in the sewage. And they know that in five days they're gonNA start seeing cases so we're learning a tremendous amount here the the trick will be putting it into the proper context and understanding. You talked a little bit earlier about how it may be necessary to be reactive. So in other words that as we begin to open we may see changes in in the incidents Or even the second wave of infections that I've been hearing about what does that mean and when might have happened as somebody who studies these viruses in his EVAC sinologist. I have. I'll say grave concern when you think about this. Kobe outbreak in the US. It started in mid to late February so we were in fact past are influenza epidemic. It's unlikely that will happen. This fall rather we will have in a perfect overlapping fashion influenza epidemics and CO VID recurrence occurring. The problem is that the symptoms overlap nearly exactly particularly initially the second is the tremendous surge demand on the medical system and the third will be the anxiety around that and do we really close everything down again and do what we've just been through for the last Several months at this remains to be seen. I think what's going to be really key. We have difficulties with getting people to take flu vaccine. What's really going to be key to encourage everybody six months of age in older. Which is the recommendation to get a flu van scene and in this case to get it as early as it's available now wait until December January. Oh you have done..

"dr greg poland" Discussed on Mayo Clinic Radio

"Welcome to Mayo Clinic. Dr Helena's Alka. We're here recording this podcast. Any Eighth Two thousand twenty. I have the pleasure again of having with me. Dr Greg Poland after Poland's an infectious disease expert as well as Being of our Rajistan indexing expert here at the Mayo Clinic. Thanks for being here. Dr Poland could be here so glad to have you. You know this has been a really somber week in terms of the covy nineteen pandemic. We've been hearing over and over that this could be the deadliest week ever for the United States in terms of this pandemic. Could you give us an update? I think you're right that the the numbers and the trends are leading that way we are now just below one and a half million cases worldwide with eighty three thousand deaths in the US. We now passed four hundred thousand cases with about thirteen thousand deaths and yet there are some hopeful signs. There has been a bit of a plant show in New York City. Which is really been an epicenter of the pandemic in the US? Now it's it's starting to spread to other areas but it does show that with out of the kinds of social distancing and other public health maneuvers that it it takes a little while but it actually does work in powerful thing to do in terms of controlling this virus in its spread so in spite of telling us this could be very deadly week. We've also heard from the CD that the numbers may not be as high here in the United States as well. How do you explain that you're very right? You know the initial projections called for somewhere. Two hundred thousand to as many as about one point seven million deaths and I've looked at those same numbers I've looked at the kinetics of transmission with this virus in its reproductive number as I said in the US were at about thirteen thousand deaths. I don't see US getting even to that bottom number. I see us being more. Perhaps in the fifty thousand deaths range which which is bad enough. But you know again to put that into perspective. We've had about thirty thousand Americans die of influenza this flu season so while this is a if you will then then flew or an influenza and certainly causes more in the way of of severe disease and death this controllable by the kinds of maneuvers. We've talked about all along this week. We heard that tiger in the Bronx Zoo was infected with covert nineteen after coming in contact with zookeeper. How that happened. And what does it mean for people in their pets? We don't know a lot of details other than the zookeeper was ill. The Tiger got it then spread it to some other tigers in alliance. I don't know if that means when they say tested positive. Was it positive for stars Kobe to? That's quite possible. We know that in the laboratory you can spread this virus. Two ferrets into cats that has not been seen with dogs and I should hasten to say that cats and dogs trade. Their own corona viruses. That don't move to humans So so there is some uncertainty around that the case now the CDC in response to that and actually beforehand made the recommendation again out of an abundance of caution to say that. If you or somebody in your household is ill with Kovic nineteen that you should not have contact with your pet now. There is no indication that I am aware of of a pet spreading to a humid. So we don't have to worry in that in that direction and I think that this is a gonNa turn out to be something very rare and uncommon. Let's turn to another topic. Vaccines obviously like to be able to prevent future infections of covert nineteen. Can you tell us where we are in terms of developing a vaccine? You know it's interesting that a lot of groups now are getting involved in terms of vaccine development. Our own group here at Mayo Clinic but there are some sixty vaccine candidates six. Oh next scene candidates that are being bandied about. There's only one actually in phase one clinical trials here in the US and this is actually the start at the fourth week of that trial. They will enroll a total of forty five individuals and then we hope that within the next few weeks to a month. We'll have the data from that trial and the determination whether to take that into face to testing everybody else is not yet at the phase one mark practically for us. When does that mean we might have a vaccine? That's a that's a really tough question. I think an optimistic and I'm GONNA say very optimistic. Milestone might be the eighteen to twenty four month time period. So that's a ways off it really it really. Is I think what that means in your senior at Mayo Clinic in other leading medical institutions. You're seeing bridge. Therapies developed so for example. I think another piece of very good news. Is that Mayo? Clinic was named the National Coordinating Center for plasma-derived therapies. What that means. Is that once somebody recovers from this infection. We can take their blood harvest. The plasma which is enriched with antibodies against Kobe nineteen and then use that as a therapy for people who might have more severe disease. So that's something we can be doing immediately. Following with that will be the development and continued clinical trials of antivirals and then I think lingering farther out from their beck seen development so a lot of amazing things going on. You know when you you really right. I I mentioned it before and I never cease to be amazed canvas that we call. Cova nineteen was blank thirteen weeks ago. It were no dots on the canvas at all and when you think of what. Collaboratively internationally has happened in terms of the generation of new knowledge. It's it's sounding in just twelve weeks Greg Bird. He told me that you have some tips for staying well and feeling better during covert. Yeah I kind of developed it Because today actually is the one hundredth day since. Who was notified about this cluster of unidentified in unusual pneumonia cases in Wuhan China? So so I thought of you know. Okay it's been a hundred days and we might have another hundred days in front of us. It's hard to know. So what can people do at this midpoint? Let's call it and some of these are kind of obvious. But I thought I'd I'd speak to ten things that collectively there's good evidence to support their value number one a media fast and what. I mean by DAD is. I don't think it's good in the data was Would suggest it's not good to sit in front of the TV all day. You know were at home. Were teleworking were going to school. From from a distance you know. Pay attention to the news. Maybe thirty minutes in the morning and thirty minutes in the evening or something but then do something else. The other thing is eat right. The tendency is going to be to reach for snack foods to reach for easy quick Processed foods to prepare. So this is an opportunity to take time. My wife and I cooked together. Well she does the cooking. I do the eating the. Don't forget about slate. This is a stressful time for people and eating right sleeping in the next one exercise things that we know improve your immune system and you want to be as healthy as you can be number five would be to connect with others. We are social creatures. Were meant to be in community with one another. That may have to be using technology as were doing. It might be a phone call. Might be Google hangout or facebook but put connect with people. Number six sounds easy to say. It's a little harder to practice. And that is even in the midst of this trial gratitude and positive thinking go along way. My daughter Actually keeps a gratitude journal and tries to keep a healthy perspective number. Seven is faith whatever your spiritual beliefs. Faith turns out to be a big driver of wellbeing when people are stressed in fearful and uncertain conditions. Number aid is to have routines and to build fun into that routines. Turn out to be very important in human behavior. Number nine is helped somebody else. It might be a neighbor Where where you have to go shopping or deliver something. Maybe you can help your neighbor so that you don't have to people going out just one and then. The last thing is embark on learning something new. There's a lot of people stuck at home if you will. This would be a fabulous time particularly as a family to say. Let's let's learn something important together. Let's learn something that will use the rest of our lives? This is a wonderful opportunity to do. So those are great. I think it's Especially thought provoking that. It's Easter which is an important holiday. For many religious individuals has been in the United States. And that sort of promise in hope of you life or bring in so what a good time to be to be thinking that way absolutely I think again you know regardless of your of your faith believe believing in something bigger than your circumstances is really important you know for us it. Mayo Clinic. It's it's our. It's not only our our families in our personal beliefs but our work belief right. We all know these same seven words. The needs of the patient come first in week coal less around that because we believe in in that bigger thing called. Mayo Clinic and then the next thing is what what are your community beliefs and then your spiritual beliefs. I think it's a it's it's a. It's a rock to kind of hold onto during.

"A doctor? Can I burn my two year old to our house in a neighborhood that has a pool a community pool? Obviously we're not touching any of the lounge chairs or anything but can I bring my daughter to the pool safely. If we're not touching you know we don't. We don't have any evidence that you know. Unlike something like polio. Back in the fifties or other water borne diseases that corona virus would be would be spread that way. The issue is this How likely is your kids to be in the pool and inhale water where I see people sneezing and coughing and water getting into their nose or mouth and they spit out into the water. How likely are you to come in con- into contact with that right away depends on whether the pools coordinated or salt water so? I personally don't think that's a great idea. I don't think it's very likely that you can sort of in a bubble walk into that community pool. Dunked yourself awhile in the water get out not touch anything not come into contact with anybody. I I just think. That's an avoidable risk factor. What are some of the best questions? You're getting what are the questions? Were not asking that we should one of them is just how serious. This is You know when you when you look at it Just two days ago in the US we had about thirty thousand cases. We've got almost fifty five thousand cases. Two days later we had four hundred dead. That's doubled in two days and I think people don't have a full appreciation that and this is a bit of a difficult concept but it goes this way what you're seeing now reflects events. That happened two to four weeks ago so we are not even at the peak of this thing yet so to begin talking about well. We'RE GONNA I. I've done this for two weeks. I'M GONNA start to relax. A little bit would be mistake because there is this two to four week lag period between people getting exposed getting symptomatic getting sick enough to no longer be outside or or expose themselves to other people and then finally have having to be admitted to the hospital. I think the other thing is this false notion. Younger people are not at risk. It's true that they're not dying. At the level people my age and older are but fifty percents of the cases in the state of New York for example are between the ages of eighteen and forty nine forty percent of the first twenty five hundred patients admitted to hospitals in the US. Were between eighteen and fifty so this this misperception that. I'm young I'm invincible. I'm not gonNA have any any particular problems. Just not true. How bad do you project this getting? Well it's really hard to know and I get asked that a lot in it gives me new of sympathy for the weather man but you know let me just give you the outside scenario. These are the speedy fees numbers. Okay not mind the CDC estimate is that if we do not engage in the strict social distancing handwashing everything we've talked about by December. We could have a hundred and sixty two. Two hundred million Americans infected with twenty one million of them sick enough to be hospitalized in two hundred thousand to one point seven million debt. So let's let's not fool ourselves. This is not just the flu. This is more serious than that. It is affecting People and being transmitted in growing exponentially it has not mutated in any negative way but it nonetheless causes considerable morbidity and mortality especially in the older people or people who have chronic medical problems. The one the one other thing I would caution against is you hear a lot of really Leaning statements about drugs that are being tried that worked in such and such disease etc. Please be really careful about that. These have to go through clinical trials before we know that they help and not cause harm just because the drug helps in one disease doesn't mean that it won't harm in another disease it has to be carefully studied first. Stugotz one last question for Dr Greg Poland. Yeah dock with all that being said and understanding the serious nature of. What's going on here? Should we be playing the Valero Open? Golf Talk I mean I don't I don't know a lot about that. I've hardly had time to watch TV or or hear any media. But I think the principle is this. You do not want to bring groups of people together where you're going to magnify and amplify transmission that we had all the founder. It's called Valero. It's like two of the top fifty in the world. I mean it's golf. We're not near each other. Give us your comfort is if you can maintain you know six to ten foot distance. Go for it yes thank you Dr. We appreciate the time all right guys. Thanks Duck yes. This is from Tiger King. Right here. I am told that it's lips thank you. We will get some facts on his documentary. We've got an expert coming on in ten minutes. Who really embedded himself in the life of all of these crazy people who are being featured in tiger king. Apparently this is a lot of lip. Synching though Mike Ryan and a lot of other people have been fooled by this guy. Singing voice wait a second. Yeah that's singing. Voice isn't coming out of JOE EXOTIC coming out of Joe Exotic. I refuse to believe then. Voice of an angel his lyrics define us in the next hour. We will find out why it is STU gods. His father yelled at him. And yes we will get to that in a little bit. But as I said we've been talking about this tiger king documentary. Put IT on the poll. Guillermo please at Lebatardshow did this thing. Not Get real for you until three hundred sixty five waffle house waffle house restaurant closed. But what are some of the things got you want to know because we've been talking about this Netflix documentary? It's about exotic animal. Owners big cat owners primarily and they're just crazy people crazy people we've never had. I think what's happening here is a lot of us are being enlighten to what this world is. And it's just basically the private zoo world and it doesn't seem like you can exist in and be any kind of sane. So what kind of questions do you want to know? Fr from this gentleman who has been immersed in all of these worlds for a while now and his super informed. Because we're GONNA talk to him in about ten minutes. Well I have to episodes to go so this could be tricky for me but I am interested. I want more information on this angel investor. And what happens with him? He apparently comes in to save the day to save. Joe EXOTICA I want to know if the EXOTICA EXOTICA an exotic erotica just did their Hashtag looking at him. Just looking at him. I understand why it is. You would arrive at that conclusion because he is as erotic as he is exotic right. I want to know if the animal reserve that wife. If she actually did kill her husband like Joe Joe Proclaim. She did many many times. They made a video about it. So I'm interested in that as well. Okay so again. It's it's part comedy and it's also about a murder attempt and possibly a disappearance as well that's next..

"I every time I enter my house do I need to change my clothes or might just being crazy person by doing that because I go outside and on my clothes and I'm like well germs. Let me take this off. Let me put this in the hamper. But then when I leave again on my outside close on again so that doing anything or it might just be neurotic. Let me let me approach this way what I'm recommending to people is what I call can textually appropriate layers of protection so find a healthcare worker? You Bet you change your clothes in the garage and wash those clothes Ideally even before you get in your car onto public transportation or how however you're getting back and forth from work for you and I No particular reason to do that now. Nobody enters my house including me without washing my hand. Nobody comes into the house without sanitizing their hands. Nobody comes into my house. Who's ill I'm not I? I am not around other people. Nobody gets within six to ten feet of me. Those are the things that we can do now. The the surfaces that you're talking about you can hardly help touching if you're going grocery shopping or putting gas in your car. It's okay to touch those. It's not going to be absorbed through your skin. But here's the key thing you gotta sanitize your hands before you start touching things you're gonNA touch repeatedly or before you touch your face or eat. Chris.

"First off. I'm a crazy person. So you're wherever that I go to wash my hands. And here's some of the things that concern me. One eye open up the sink right my hands dirty when I opened up the sink so I try to do it with my elbow. But I've been opening doors and pushing buttons with elbow so I feel like I'm dirty it so then I washed my ange rate and then I have to close the which is now probably infected. Because I touched it before the that my dirty handwrite dirty Elmo and then if I want to get something driver hands. I've touched that with my dirty hands so if I go to touch paper towels regular towels to dry my hands with infected with the germs that I just watched off my hand previous so so it depends on whether you're in your own home or you're in a public washroom. Public washrooms are the worst they are danger zones for these viruses bacteria etc so you can go ahead and turn the water on with your bare hand. Wash your hands. But then turn the water faucet off with the paper towel. Exit the bathroom with the paper towel in your own home. You might have paper towels right next to your sink so that you can open and turn on and turn off the water using Napkins paper towel. Whatever so you're not doing exactly what you're talking about which is re- contaminated Gas Nozzles Supermarket. Debit machines. How dangerous those things you know again. No no way to quantitative but we do know this and I know what I'm about to say sounds really simple but but just bear with me a minute. There's nothing exotic about this virus. You cannot get infected if you don't breathe it in or don't introduce it to your body with your fingers. There's only two ways that we know of so think through what that means if I don't breathe it in okay I'm socially distance I'm not around sick people maybe even in public. I'm worrying self-made facemask. Cause and we can go back to it but that does help Those are those are really important. Things that that people can do and they tend to think. Well let's not very high tech. It's not gonNA help me but it really does help. And then the other thing that we talked about is washing your hands. You now prevented the only two ways in which you can get infected holding your breath around. People is helpful. Well he's interesting. My wife and I were talking about that when we were out running last night. And we said you know. What if we're if we're going to run by anybody and they're coughing or anything you know we're GONNA maintain a ten foot distance because these large respiratory droplets can't go that far. And Yeah you might hold your breath for a second or two until you pass that person billy. What do you have for Dr Greg Poland specialists in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota?

"Greg. Poland joins us now on ESPN radio. Thank you for making the time doctor. We do in my pleasure a lot of questions. What would you say? Are Some of the biggest mistakes people are making right now? Because they're not properly informed. I think one is that they think they know how to wash their hands but they don't. I have never seen a layperson. Wash their hands properly. I think the second thing is people have a lot of misconceptions about social distancing and about how effective it is. I think the third thing is just how serious this really is. Even younger. People are taking them one at a time. Then what is the correct way as quickly as you can explain it to us? What is the correct later off your hands. What you want to do is walk is wet. Your hands in hand washing is better than hand. Sanitizer you get two soap on your hands and you're going to spend about twenty to thirty seconds washing your palms your thumbs in between your fingers. And here's what everybody forget the fingertips. That's the important part. Because that's what you touch your eyes nose and mouth with and then rents and then turn the handle off. Open the door of the bathroom wherever you are. If you're in a public washroom with the paper towel so water. I Water Warren. The hands hand. Wet Your hand wet then get to soak because you really want the lather. Reason handwashing is superior to hand sanitizers. Is that your physically washing bacteria viruses etc off. The soap has something that decreases surface tension and gets rid of hand. Oils dirt. Nukus whatever's on your hand hand sanitizers cannot penetrate or into dirt. So you know it's if that's all you have use it but hand washing better stugotz. What do you have for the doctor? So when should we use the sanitizer it sanitizer bit overrated doc? Is that what you're saying? No it's just it is not as good as handwashing now. It's better than nothing of course and I would call it second best. You WanNA use a ham sanitizer. That's at least sixty to seventy percent alcohol. You WANNA put a quarter to half dollar size. I see people scored a little. You know peanut size. That's not enough and you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA wipe it over your hands the same way I demonstrate in the video to get all aspects all surfaces of your hands all right so we feel good about the handwashing here. I know I have a bunch of questions. I know. Our staff has a bunch of questions because no one is certain what to do here. Doc I'll start with the mail like am I supposed to go out and grab the mail from the mailbox because I have heard that I should let that mail or packages sit outside for a couple hours to a day before I go outside. And get it yeah. This is a complicated one because nobody has demonstrated transmission from the Mail on the other hand. We know that the virus can be recovered from paper and it then then it's a question of how long does it actually last on that paper? So you're talking about statistically improbable events and yet they probably occur. So what can you do? Well the safest thing would be exactly as you said if you can expose them to Higher outdoor temperatures to sunlight. That certainly helps. The other thing is open your mail and then go wash your hands. Billy what do you have for Dr Greg Poland specialists in infectious disease at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota? Ostriches.

"A tweeter writes in helpfully. When are you guys going to handle? How bad the sound is from Billy Chris Greg Roy? It is unacceptable that you have not fixed this in two weeks. I don't want to become defensive about that criticism. I would just say to you that there are certain challenges that are making our show a little bit more difficult or a lot more difficult than it usually is and tensions are high stu gods just yelled at Roy for the First Time. I've seen in about fifteen years doing this Roy. Through his headsets a in in in a rage Stugotz has been trying to soothe Roy. Sense it has not worked. This is why divorce rates are already up all over the country. Everyone is sick of each other. We are tearing apart at the seams. And let me be defensive on your behalf year to that person who texted in shut the hell up. Okay seriously. Like we're doing the show very difficult conditions and I understand. Everyone is living under very difficult. Conditions Right now but we're actually trying to do a radio show that requires a lot of communication. You will never know from the way we do it but requires a lot of communication and we value the voices of Roy. Billy Chris and Mike and it is hard to get to them right now. So we're doing the best weekend but I'll be defensive and I will tell you shut up adult text us again. Thank you Guillermo at Lebatardshow is show. Tearing apart at the seams at Lebatardshow we've got an update all of these polls. We've had three days of Poles and we haven't gotten to reading any of them. We will do that before. The show is over but Earlier during last week I should say we were talking about just owners billionaires and I was talking about Micky. Arison the Miami Heat owner and many people because We've talked before about the idea. The Greatest Gulf between sports fans and the people who play sports. It's a bridge made of money because it is the place where a lot of judgment rains down and people don't have compassion generally for the millionaires and billionaires. There is something about having money in sports that makes people slightly less human so because I find fascinating and also stressful. What it is that some of these people with big money are enduring right now because no one really prepares for the apocalypse. And I don't know what Micky Arison monthly bills are. I have found fascinating that when I look at this situation. Not taking a side when. I looked at the situation of what's happening with the Miami Heat. And its owners as he ends up having a real crisis on his hands in the cruise industry a cruise industry that. I would make no arguments on behalf of bailing out. I don't believe that a cruise industry or a casino industry especially not cruise industry where the taxes aren't even paid in this country. I would not make any of the arguments on behalf of we should bail out a cruise company. But I do understand how it is that this would be a hugely stressful time. No matter how much money it is that you have the idea that you're basketball franchise has always been a toy. That doesn't even make money. It barely. It barely broke. Even during the Miami Heat's Lebron years now. There is money at the end of this. When you sell the franchise and like Steve Balmer. You end up paying two billion dollars because you WANNA franchise. While I wouldn't make the argument that it was an act of altruism either that Micky arison offered his cruise ships to Donald Trump as hospitals. Because I'm guessing he wants some of the money that would come or the government aid that would come. I'm guessing there. I don't know anything about this but I find the entire situation interesting. Like why wouldn't people imagine that if you're hemorrhaging money that is in the billions not the millions that that would be a stressful thing. No matter who the hell you are especially if you don't see any wearing the distance relief coming and only relief that you that you hope on is what will the country bail me out. We'll the government bail me out like what? What is it about people that they don't understand it? I'm not? I'm not trying to engender sympathy for anybody. I know that many of you and our audience for some reason have limits on your compassion and your empathy and your sympathy. But what is it about what? I'm saying that people can understand that that would be hugely stressful situation. No matter your wealth. Because they're comparison shopping their stress and their situation is way worse than Micky arison situation or more Cuban situation. Those guys the owners wealthy people they have resources that most of us do not have. They are staying nice houses. They're going to have a lot of money whether the Cruise Industry sinks or not Dan no pun intended Micky. Arison is going to be just fine. So they're comparison shopping and saying listen. I don't care about that guy stress and what he has to do and how much money he's GonNa lose. Because I am sitting at home and I'm not working in. My stress is for greater than a billionaire stress. That's what they're doing. If I may just out of curiosity how is it that you know exactly that? Micky Arison is going to be just fine. I'm just curious how it is that you would know that. I understand how you would arrive assumption. But given the given the general state of where we seem to be headed as an economy and given that you've got politicians right now arguing on behalf of we need to keep the economy alive more than we keep our old people alive like. I'm not sure that anybody is okay in this climate. And that's fair to answer your question. I don't know if he's going to be okay but people like myself people just assume that he's going to be okay like. Hey Mickey is GonNa be just fine. Even if his company goes because maybe they think he invested wisely. He's got a lot of money they just don't care they just assume that he's going to be five. Maybe that's totally fair response from you but most people just kind of feel like hey regards what happens here billionaire going to be fine after this is over. Yeah in this country. We just really don't allow billionaires to go broke especially if have those companies and even if you take carnival and the industry the cruise line industry as a whole doesn't get bailed out in the way that it's being reported in the news at it. Might he still has the asset at the Miami Heat. He no like. There's a lot of people that are losing their businesses right now and having to decide whether or not they go with a car micky arison is going to have to decide whether or not he wants to sell the Miami Heat. I would be curious if you guys what what's a number. I would have to put in front of you for it to reach you in terms of what the monthly bills are for someone like Micky Arison to have no income coming in and again. I'm not sitting here trying to make any argument. I would argue the other side. I would not bail out something like the cruise industry here but where would I have to put the number to get anyone's attention on what the monthly bills are? And I understand Steve. Balmer sits here and buys the forum in four hundred million dollars. Cash that that. There's no one listening audience right now. Who has any concept none of what that is to live in that world where you can buy something with four hundred million dollars cash and have it represent only ten percent of your well? Oh I wouldn't want Micky arison problems right now and that's horrible decision. I know it's like a situation that none of us can find a connection point to do. I have to decide whether or not to sell my professional basketball team for a billion dollars. He's got a I'm envious of his parachute but I'm not envious of the personal life decisions that he has to make week weakest problems right now a lot bigger than mine. Not Envious of the problems. I am envious of the parachute that he has but might people would love to trade their problems for Mickey's problems. That's where it comes from. I don't WanNA trade for his problems. I want to trade for his solutions. You want to right now like you want to give you right now and I give you this given what your life is right now. You wake up in the morning you go to a microphone and you've done by the by one o'clock and you're in then. I don't have problems. I'm not the one sitting home. At least not right now. I don't have a problem. We're working. I'm still learning paycheck. But if I wasn't working and our place to place a day to day then yes I would trade those problems for Mickey's problems.

This is a little counter intuitive given that to keep yourself safe from this virus the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend handwashing. I and using hand sanitizer only as a backup. If you don't have access to running water we spoke with Dr Greg Poland a representative for the Infectious Diseases site of America and professor of Medicine and Infectious Diseases at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota. He said proper hand washing is the safest most efficacious least expensive and readily available method to prevent disease. So why would plain old soap and water be more effective against germs than alcohol based hand sanitizer? Poland explained when you're physically washing your hands. You're doing three things. You're removing visible dirt and Mucus. You're using a soap that decreases surface tension. And you're physically by friction loosening removing and washing away. Whatever is on your hand. This includes germs that you can't see and is perhaps particularly effective at stopping the spread of some germs like Corona viruses because the outer casing of these germs is made up of Lipids. Which are fats just as soap can wedge itself down between particles of Greece on a dirty pan and help break it up?

For example influenza viruses will be present in your mucus. Several studies have shown that handwashing got rid of the flu virus from hands. Much faster than hand. Sanitizer did okay.

You've probably seen a billion memes this week about how to do it but let's review the steps for everyone's sake. There are a whole bunch of times that people should be washing their hands but probably the most important are before you prepare or eat food after using the bathroom. And before you touch your face. Here's the protocol according to the CDC. I WHAT HANDS CLEAN RUNNING? Water warm or cold will do then turn off the tap and apply soap lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Any soap will work. It doesn't have to be antibacterial and remember antibacterial. Soap will help. Keep you safer from viruses than regular soap.

Start at your fingertips and work backward. Rub Your hands for at least twenty seconds. You Can Hummer Sing. Happy Birthday twice or some other diddy. If counting doesn't do it for you. The five seconds that most people take to wash their hands doesn't get as many microbes afterwards. Rinse your hands. Well under running water and dry them using a clean towel or with an air dryer. If you're in a public restroom it helps to use a paper towel to turn the faucet off and to open the bathroom door.

It's with the area of the hand that nobody washes properly. That is the fingertips people. Wash the palm. They washed the back of their hands. They washed the bottom third of the fingers.

So now you have perfectly clean hands but wait. You need to open the door that leads from the hallway where the bathroom is back to your office.
