"Show Bill's office back on Monday and we're back with Dr Jim Keeney. Oh, The line is locked. John, I hit I hit the number 12 and I locked it. Can you fix that? I want to talk to him about Welcome back. Dr Jim, you're now unlocked. All right. So two studies having to do with covert 19 and blood type one of them looking at, I guess positivity rates and the other one looking at who ends up on ventilators. What do you want to tell us about this? So you know, this is where we start. Medical research is listening in associations. But you've got to remember that association does not equal cause right. So the rooster crows the sun comes up. The rooster did not make the sun come up, right, but they're associated. So they look like one might cause the other. And and so we gotta be careful assuming that we know too much from associations, So it's interesting because right blood type Is connected, Tio specific type of blood cell, Then it's also connected to a specific types of proteins within the immune system and within the blood. It's also connected to a certain genetic makeup. So which of those three things maybe having that effect? You know the number one? We don't even know there's an effect. But if we do what's the cause, and so that's The interesting question for future research. I think we gotta look into it. Remember that. You know what? We're talking about Blood type, and I don't really understand what makes The blood. The type of the blood group that it is how much how much of all blood is the same and how much of it is the different things that indicate what type it is? So blood types have to do with the types of protein that are sitting on your red blood cells. So type a has a bunch of proteins that air the A protein type B has the B protein. Then when a person and a person have a baby, they could potentially have a child with an A B blood type, so they have mixed proteins. On the surface of their red blood cell. If you have no proteins on the surface, you're type O. And those proteins result in antibodies, Tio if you give them to somebody who doesn't have it, right, so If I have a type a blood, I don't. I'm not going to make any bodies to my own blood. But if you give me type B blood, I'm going to make tight be antibodies because I've never seen those bacteria are those Ah, proteins on my my blood cells before and I'm going to think they're foreign. So that's why we say A B is the universal recipient. They can get any kind of blood because they have the lack of antibodies for you know the air, The bee Protein, the opposite type O blood, Universal donor. They don't have any proteins. Tio trigger an immune response. You can give type O blood anyone? Okay. The red blood cells themselves. Are they the same in everybody? There there, theoretically the same in every other way. But yet we are kind of limiting that's showing it. Ah, genomic, You know our Ah genetic pool that when you're locked into just a blood type, or just the B blood type, So, you know, there's there's other association of of genetic material with Those blood types. All right. So these studies I mean, you tell me if you think this is significant in the Danish study, 41% of the people in the population are Type O, but only 38%. Were type O amongst the group that tested positive. So they're saying typo people are under represented in the group of people who tested positive. Does that? Does that remain that typo people might be more resistant to catching the virus. It might. You know, it might mean that it's just such a small, you know, percentage. I mean, it is a large number of population. They only did they did this study through 7000 people that are 7500 people, so it's not the entire population. Ah, no, actually, that's incorrect. One study was with 7000. And then they looked at Ah, larger group. So the point is, that's a very small difference. I don't know that's going to help anyone, right. It's not going to help you if you're if you have a 3% less chance, and you can't change your blood type anyway. But then when you look at the hospitalization ones they were looking at whether you how long you stay in the hospital and whether he required mechanical ventilation and those were different. But as far as the percentage of people who would actually get cove in the other states have shown it doesn't make too much of a difference. And then who would survive Cove it? It doesn't make that much of a difference. So we're saying theoretically, that if you end up on a ventilator, you're more likely to die. But it doesn't seem to have that that is not bearing out and the numbers yet. So it's just an interesting thing for research. I mean again were just so much We don't know about this virus. We started off treating it like it was a pneumonia. It's not a pneumonia. It's a vascular problem associated with like super inflation are super inflammation, super blood clotting, and then that results in a low oxygen levels, not the other way around. And so With other things like pneumonia. It's the other way around, and we just had to get used to that. And that's why people are surviving much better now because we're addressing those issues. All right. Very good to talk to you. I'm sure you'll be on again soon. Thank you. Thanks. Yeah.

"It is. A Monday morning, October 12th. And this morning started the Senate confirmation hearings for Amy Cockney Barrett. And she has yet to actually answer any questions is the first part of the morning was thie simply the Senators doing there five minute opening statements and it was just them talking about their political views. Yada yada. Now the questioning is going to start later on manufactured starting about 15 20 minutes. And We have weather news. It's going to be hot, hot hot today. Unfortunately, and the wildfire situation the risks I have increased dramatically or starting today, Dr. Jim Keeney, co director of the art Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, is with us and we have two issues one which we're going to dismiss pretty quickly, but the other one. Ah, there there is some conversation and also, Jim just said there was some new data on herd immunity. Jim Good morning. Thanks for joining us. As always. Morning. Go. Alright. Let's put to bed instantly. The president's statement that he has been cured of Cove it I'm going to let you just go ahead and go. I don't think so. Um I don't know what you mean. I mean, you have Cove it and then you recover. Ah, And once you've recovered, I mean, that's what we call a cure, right or Ah, you know. Okay, Well, let me all right, let me do this. He talked about it as we're talking about the monoclonal antibodies as a cure. I think that's the way to deal with it is does that work? Um, well, I mean again in his case, it's a study of one. So the problem is, we don't know what got him better, whether it was his own immune system. Whether it was the antibodies, whether it was the room's down severe You know which of these things helped. I mean, That's why what we're doing at this point is throwing everything we have at the virus. So you know, do we have a quote? Cure for the virus? In the sense that you come in? I have a magic pill. I give it to you and you're cured. We don't have that yet. We don't know. But on the other hand, do we have treatments that we know are way more effective than what we were doing. You know, six months ago when we had no idea, then Yeah, I would say that we do have You know, In fact, you know, there's this kind of crazy. No, I wouldn't say that. This kind of very aggressive woman that called the hospital regularly doesn't leave her name or phone number and asks if we used the mass plus protocol, and I could never call her back. Tell her that Yes, we dio, But now she's listening. She knows we used the mass plus protocol. That's a protocol. That that is that we consider a treatment isn't a cure. Well, some people get cured from that. Yeah, Alright, So it's okay. So I know we're going to give him the benefit of the doubt then because you could plausibly discuss what happened to him as a cure, assuming you look at it and on in a non control testing environment. Right. I mean, many people used these non scientific terms that are more emotional right, an emotional way to get a certain response and it and it works. Fair enough now, immunity. Ah, hey, didn't claim he was immune. He said Ah, there. He's I'm immune. Maybe I'm not Do we have in any information out there on a scientific basis about immunity, Whether you get it how long it lasts the potency of your immunity. If you will. It's ability to Stave off the virus. Any information about that. Those are all great questions. And I mean, actually gave a good answer, right? Maybe he's immune. Maybe he's not. That's exactly the situation we're in. Right now is all those questions you ask, are exactly what we need to know. And we're in the process of learning. Right. So we know that we can measure antibodies. But are those neutralizing antibodies? Do they prevent the infection? The answer is not all antibodies prevent the infection. So we have people that have tested positive for the virus, and then you know there was A case that was reviewed and they looked at the genetic markers to see if it was a new infection and it wass and those persons developed antibodies. But then they still gotta second infection, so we know second infections or possible. We know there's people that have been tested up to three or four months afterwards, and they do have persistent antibodies, so to some extent, the antibodies will persist. But what we need to know is, you know really well this, you know, Okay, We gotta back up a little bit. You know, you need to know how the immune system works, and it's a coordinated response. Right? It's a full army. We've got B cells make antibodies. We have two types of T cells CD four CD eight. All three have to act in a coordinated response. And what we see in the elderly population is the reason they seem to get sicker is they don't mount a coordinated response. So it seems like it's super important. Your entire immune system engages in the process. If you only get one or two parts you seem to get more likely to get infected. And more later we too, get check that we got this whole side that glaze. People dies over about type one interfere on that's a signaling chemical that tells our immune system. What to Dio and when they did one study where the people that got super sick that were critical about 4% of those didn't have the type one interfere on so there there's something wrong with your immune system and And they were more likely compared to the you know all about 1 1/100 of that percent where the people that did well, so you know, there's so much we don't know It's impossible to go into it all. But we're still looking for where those neutralizing antibodies. How do we generate those? And we are seeing positive effects like that modern a vaccine. That's a new type of vaccine. Look kind We've never used before. They've looked at people over. 56 study just came out 40 people, and it did actually create all those necessary marker. So it's a good sign so far. Yeah. Why would you ever think that what you tell us? Is that all convoluted or difficult to understand? Exactly what we're talking about. Type one interfere. I know we're going off the rails, and we're gonna hold it from planet are going to come back, and I want to talk about some information on herd immunity. That's something we've been talking about for a very long time. And that's ah, big topic right now, especially among those people. This huge number of people that will never get vaccinated. Ah, and I understand that's a preliminary studies have just happened. Let's come back on. We will return the doctor Jim Keeney, and let's check in with you. Topher. President.

"Of the Ocean View School District in Orange County tells CBS two people need to start doing more to limit the spread of the virus First. Do we want our Children back in schools or do we want to be out? Man and mixing and doing things that are going to set us backwards. Governor's order means the affected schools will have to keep doing all of their teaching online instead of in person unless and until there is a big improvement in the virus situations in their own individual counties. As for local Catholic schools, they will open the school year with distance learning because of the new state requirements, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles announced today. Campuses in Ella Ventura and Santa Barbara County's will remain closed for now. Teachers at and staff that is, in all 265 Catholic schools have made extraordinary efforts in hopes of welcoming students back this fall that's now delayed Riverside County. It now has the second highest Countywide totals of cases and deaths, of course from Corona virus in the entire state. This comes after the county reported an additional 518 cases and two deaths on Friday. That brings the Countywide totals to 28,800 cases and 587 deaths. Dr. Jim Keeney is head of the E R Department at Mission Hospital. He blames the three week delay between transmission and diagnosis and says the delayed feedback created a false sense of security in the community. People We're going back to restaurants going back to hair salon to the gym. All these places and and some of them were not wearing masks and then Mass became a political issue instead of a public health issue.

"Forty live everywhere in the I heart radio app Dr Jim Keeney with our medical update every day hi Jim New York of course a the poster child of coronavirus hearing not a state and the opinion it just seems logical to me and tell me if there are any other reasons are that corona virus has exploded with simply density all right and that's the logical conclusion is would there be any other reason why the numbers were so high yeah I mean there there are potential other reasons but I've often thought just I mean you it it was and you know what we're having we're having a hard time can I you couldn't that we hang up on you and call you right back because this phone line really sucks okay Sir all right John can we tried again as Jim hangs up and down will lag talk more so that's my question we're gonna talk about that the question is New York and some R. E. and some questions about whether density is everything I end up fourteen thousand people volunteers it seemed to be infected with a corona virus and there's one story about a nurse who was not wearing the nineteen I have she's the in ninety five mask and rushed in to save a patient did up in that it doing CPR and was infected and then died and that was as LA times story was on the news last night and that's a horrible story and therein lies the problem with all of it do we have Jim back by any chance John John we have Jim do we have your back we're still trying to get jammed if not I have to tell some jokes and will try again when when we have a shot at getting jam on so well as I said earlier I how are we dealing with a somebody just going to that real quickly or Jim are you back yeah okay sorry about that I was just about to talk about the pandemic in the end of the pandemic and the social part of it as I'm spinning not knowing if you're coming on or not and the question was New York City was it density because it's among the dances says cities on the planet and could there be any other reason that the corona virus hit so badly in that location yeah I mean it was one of the first locations in the United States so course they were not really social distancing early on and it wasn't until already it had spread quite you know quite extensively in that people started social distancing so I think that's a big part of it and absolutely I mean I really like I was saying in the earlier segment I just look at you know how much of somebody else's brat your breathing and basically and that's going to be a risk if you're working in an office even if you're separated by six feet and you're just sitting there for eight hours that's a lot of BRAF your breathing and you know as opposed to even rapidly walking you know you walk through the grocery store and you walk back out you're you're in there for maybe ten fifteen minutes I would say the risk at a place of work we are sitting in the same place is actually higher so you know you extend that to New York with subways and large office buildings and and even large crowds everywhere you know I mean you're just gonna have a much higher risk for sure one of the stories out of New York is that communities like Williamsburg I heavy concentration of orthodox Jews if you remember the story of that rabbi who died and twenty five hundred people showed up to his funeral and they were just back to back to back and some of them not wearing masks clearly that makes a lot of sense that you would see the virus spreading there and then it just occurred to me really quickly is that they all speak Yiddish over there so there's a lot of hello hi Amy never mind Jim eight yeah I mean one level seeing another level shouting I mean if your budget you know we have in my family but to retaliate and yelling at each other yeah hi Jim we'll talk again tomorrow thank you Sir coming up handle that was actually pretty good handle on it the news late edition right here on KFI Jennifer Europe Wuhan China has reported a new cluster of covert nineteen cases one flew on ended up the city wide lock down more than a month ago and reported zero new.

"Dr Jim Keeney D. R. dock at mission hospital gyms are once again thanks for coming back in a body tests that in the last couple of days have become a huge news people are lining up demanding it I hear that it's just in the very early stages gives a background on that place all righty I'd say it is so complicated doctors are doing the same thing they're all coming to us saying I want anybody comes on and off on the news and I wonder if I had it but the bottom line is we're way too early in this process to really know what the results mean so you know for example sars we figured out you know back in two thousand and three that you're immune for about a year it lasts about a year a little over a year for murders that middle eastern restoration German last closer to four years four to five years so we don't really know I mean are you going to be immune after this the easy I'll tell you the easy way to get tested if you already have been sick and you want antibody tasks then you go to try and donate your your convalescent plasma they will be used to be treated each for treatments for other people with cove it they will test you in the they actually measure kind of the level of antibodies you have in your blood which is what you really want to know do you have enough antibodies that you might be immune all the other tests are just plus or minus you know art do you have any antibodies are don't you some of those crossover with other coronaviruses about called specificity how specific is the test if it's if it crosses over you mate you may think that you have been exposed to your immune but you're really just immune to some other corona virus and not this one and so on as as far as these tests are concerned no let me let me rephrase that for me to repeat that only it only makes sense if you have already been sick or you are sick now to find out whether your odd you have immunity or not well at this stage is the only thing that it really works for but I'm in the future the goal would be let's figure out from it epidemiologic standpoint who's been exposed how many people actually have immunity and how much risk are we really add as a community once we have a solid test that can tell us not only do you have the exact antibody for covert nineteen but you also have an adequate level to confirm you know immunity in the future then we can start mass testing people and now we know you're safe to go back to work you know we don't have to worry about you home you know staying at home your immune right and so that'll put the whole population back to work once we can get that test the problem is we're not there yet that's what everybody wants that's what our bodies asking for but even when they get that mail order tester that test the fifteen minute blood **** cast they're not getting what they think they're getting and as far as the virus itself is there enough information out there to at least start getting initial understandings of how different this is is there more than just more lethal than the common influenza and that's will yet or is this a whole new animal that has a whole new set of parameters yeah I know I think I think this is all new animal in a way because we're seeing things like the damage it does to the lungs the way it affects the heart and the way it affects the liver you know it and the way that all the people that end up really sick going to kidney failure there's something about the intra cellular mechanisms that actually make this virus different and it causes damage I don't know there's part of it it looks like it cause the damage by affecting the hemoglobin ringing inside you know that carries the oxygen inside the red blood cell so there's something interesting there there's the way it enters the cell is through this receptor it happens to be the same receptor that we block for high blood pressure you know for it's called A. R. B. E. R. and your data you know I won't even say that but it's it's a it's a receptor for high blood pressure and and that ends up the mechanism to get into the cell so we don't know I like it does that mean that if since I'm I'm a blood pressure medicine that blocks that receptor and not a higher risk am I a lower risk we don't even know the answer to that yet so we really have just just started how long does it take I don't have a vaccine Ian what twelve to eighteen months and that's exactly what ready to go in other words I might be able to go to the doctor like a flu shot get a corona shot well that's the plan I don't know I've never is like I said we talked about this before I haven't really seen any other coronavirus vaccine so I don't know why people are so optimistic about it tell you the truth I mean this would be a miracle and it would be great and I know that's what they're working towards and and I think we have the technology now to be able to try and figure this out so I'm hopeful but at the same time you know I'm not holding my breath for this vaccine and and yes and so the question is even well how effective will be I mean the influenza ranges from you know twenty five percent effective some years to maybe eighty percent effective in the past years if this thing can be at least fifty percent effective or even make it so that you still get sick but you don't get as sick as you would've you know then I would call that a win and a lot of people might not call it a win they might say well I don't want to get it back scene if I'm still going to get sick so you know it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out and there are and you know I'm a big proponent of vaccines but on the other hand there are complications from vaccines there are and so will people tolerate the level of complications that we may get from whatever this new vaccine S. yeah there's a lot unsaid I mean we just literally started thank you for putting a lot of this in perspective Jim we'll talk again tomorrow Dr Jim Keeney our our medical update all right coming up handle on the news late edition right here K. a fight ATM at six forty live everywhere in the I heart radio app all right Jennifer Elise Mears got some new blood brothers the mayor's office has partnered with U.

R. it's not a it's a slight draft not a chef so you certainly have you know a few new protein on the the influenza virus and older adults who've been exposed to similar proteins have some type of immunity a partial immunity so they're not hit as hard but the young kids you've never seen that they're the ones hit harder but in this case we see I mean something unique with this corona viruses it drops your white blood cell count you know normally with an inspection right let's all count shoots up what we're seeing with these people is it plummets it just drops so there's something about what we call cellular immunity you know this is the way the white blood cells react there are probably making this worse for adults so you know we we've known for years that kids immune systems evolve as they grow up from infancy all the way up you know they they start evolving into something different and there's something about that that seems to protect them a little bit from getting so sick from this virus a quick question because obviously I ask you a question about the virus you're very well versed I know you read a lot of journals and I know you read a lot about emergency medicine which is what you deal with have you shifted Nile looked at epidemiology paper studies is that where you're going these days yeah I know I I definitely I don't Hey ho he's read a lot of just complete random stuff which I think is why you and I get along is because you know it's a little bit of attention deficit disorder when it comes to medicine so you know I it that's exactly what I would read right now is all the stuff related to immunology and related to biology and epidemiology all those all at all ages okay sure and we talk just just procedurally now I'm just fascinated by what actually happens to you in the ER and doctors around the country every day you're on a conference call with other ER doctors both in the system and around the country pretty much every not every day but you know where we have a health system wide one every two weeks we have one with our region as our southern California region once a week I have one with R. ER staff once a day so we're you know we're constantly in it seems like lately I'm in meetings basically from this interview until about one in the afternoon and then I actually go to work wow all right Jim thanks for taking the time as you do every day while talking in tomorrow with a medical update all right Jim Keeney who is runs the E.

"Dr Jim Keeney our state medical update Jim has always had thanks for taking the time to hand out I want to start with the good news sad tech came out this morning and that is a new projection shows that California is going to see fewer deaths and hospitalizations from the virus and now previously thought out with the peak demand for a resource is expected to happen this week or next week so would you comment on that night and how they got to that number and what you are seeing I personally well so from what I understand I mean this is the website that a lot of us have been watching not really knowing you know that the quality of the accuracy of the data that we don't know you kind of go with reputation right so university of Washington and and I I understand had some funding from the gates foundation they're using something called geographical databases to come up with these numbers and yeah I mean it was it yesterday date change they binge they've been updating those numbers every like maybe once a week it seems like and yesterday they changed them and all of a sudden the California peak drop significantly and it it arrived earlier than we thought so they originally said it's gonna be the twenty fourth they moved it to the twenty six the peak was above the resources we had and now it showing that that that we should hit a peak in the next week in the resources are actually within what we can handle so you know with the expansion with with this surge capacity that we're putting in place so we turned out a good thing we did all this and it does look like which you know we should be able to meet the needs the problem is always the pockets right where all of a sudden you get twenty cases at one hospital and then that one hospitals overwhelmed so you know hopefully will do a good job of coordinating amongst hospitals and that that mercy ships maybe to offload some hospitals in LA and and everything will be good now on a personal level that is you and I know you can't give me numbers but I it down if he are in the high mission hospital where you work the numbers of patients coming in relatively small what you assumed or just a different number yeah so this has had yeah kind of a devastating impact on the volume of patients that we see we are significantly down the number of patients that we would normally see in New York having said that though the people that we're seeing are super sick you know so the only people come into the ER at this point are like the real critical emergencies and and so it's weird you know it's just really weird every person you see is just extremely stacked but what we're seeing much fewer patients like but probably in the fifty percent range maybe not quite there but close to fifty percent down and and we are not seeing a huge search and call the patients coming up coming up until yesterday we were still seeing a steady flow of people that where people at risk that were people that were real sick from it and you know people that need is you know some need to be admitted to the hospital but what we haven't kind of hit that surge and that's the problem is I don't think we'll know until it actually happens if that actually happens you know when we get that huge influx it just we you know in our business we call it the bus on loading so when the bus pulled up and unloaded all of a sudden state of it being a car with a couple people and that suddenly you've got fifty sixty people walking in all at once you don't get any warning perhaps you have to be prepared for you as you describe the E. R. where fewer people coming in but they're far sicker I am guessing is obviously just sub sub position for me that those people who are sick or actually getting OB I will see better care by Ted Dr spending more time and having service on a level they normally don't get is that fair to say yeah I mean people are being seen within minutes of arrival where wait times could have been upwards of two hours two to four hours on the really really busy peak times so people are getting seen immediately that alone usually really calms that patient's nerves when they're not waiting out there for hours it's weird because you don't get to see your doctor space you know we're talking through all this this PP and suddenly you know where it is feels a little disconnected from that perspective but other than that yeah I mean people are I think they're getting outstanding care and yeah like I said at the the one thing I'm concerned about is there are people waiting too long to come in I mean they're they're so concerned about coming to the hospital or the emergency department that we had a couple people that I think you know that they might have said that people just regular old heart attacks that might have survived if they would have come in you know earlier but they just waited the virus itself I have a question ask you're talking a friend of mine and die the if you go to New York not only are they overwhelmed in terms of the facilities and the number of people coming in in the long I should have sat down the healthcare workers are working out are in fact working it is just horrible to see that but the virus and I want to talk about for a moment the funeral directors are totally overwhelmed is out this is just kind of a weird handle question how long is the virus stays around is it a dangerous you know for example someone is parked off who is it has passed away is that virus still there yeah I mean it's a good question because that they are they do you have special handling procedures for patients and and deceased bodies that have it has a likelihood of an infectious disease so you know there where this and they have special procedures it's specifically for cold and I don't know how long it would last in a human body because you know we left a note left on surfaces for three days people talk about how like if they're bringing in their mail in there letting it sit there for three days before they open it because they want the virus checked to be dead or not dead but inactivated where they can't catch it but yeah that number is going to be different in the human body and I don't know what it is and how are you are you in any better shape with the P. P. ease as more and more companies are companies are bringing a man and does not only manufacturing them but also bring in from China any change in your situation the last few days you know it's not where I expected it to be at I mean still the floodgates of PP have not opened I mean we still are are running based on scarcity so we have protocols in place to re use certain RPG elements we have places to refurbish them and then we're still doing extended use and so that re use an extended useful or recommended by the CDC you know based on lack of adequate supplies so we're still in that but what I mean I'd like to get to the point where we can throw away a disposable P. says PP and just get a fresh one every time like like you would in an ideal situation are you actually getting inventory are you making do without what you have I know we're getting inventory because we you know we're burning through the inventory that we have you know in a in a matter of days not in a matter of weeks so that way you know if we hadn't been resupplied we'd be in trouble all right I'll take a break come back and sleep choose about the transmission from animals to humans which is a big issue here and that we're hearing about the dark side of the ventilators from here a different situation than in New York will be right back with Dr Jim Keeney this is KFI AM six forty live everywhere on the I heart radio app all right let's.

"F. hi Dr Jim Keeney the former chief of staff at mission hospital who is an ER doc and we've been talking to Dr Jim tried to him on all last week but of course the briefings from the White House blew everything apart Jim good morning and thanks for joining us I know you've been a little bit more than busy some news and I didn't know this it just broke you've been a first responder I mean frontline stuff yeah yeah I was you know they I I was used our team was used to take care of the the patient off of the cruise ship so they've been in quarantine for last couple weeks and should be getting in off quarantine said wow so I doubt and those were the first videos of people that the health agencies were dealing with were people coming off the cruise lines and and that was you when I saw it these people in a hazmat outfits dealing with them yeah I I actually my team of instant Oakland we were sent to a different location but but yeah although they're all the same teams I mean those are called disaster medical assistance teams and their staff federal HHS teams that go out during disasters and they so they decide to use that resource as well as public health to the national public health service to deal with these people all right and I I know you went to Haiti during the earthquake and you've done a lot of this work so explain what it was like I envisioned the first responder in these hazmat suits which you can see but getting sprayed right afterwards like your what coming from a radio active facility or coming from a level five lab add to the CDC explain the procedure would you sure I mean it's the same procedure that the hospitals across the country are using and are somewhat challenge because you know there's not enough of that personal protective equipment or PP available so and we have the same challenges I mean we're trying to make sure we had enough equipment from day one and eat you basically have a hot zone and you have a clean area and in between that you you have a station where you would remove all your all your contaminated equipment and then stepped out of the hot zone and so that's a regular thing you educate people you walk in at the beginning of your shift yeah you go to the clean area and fully gallon out and then you you go ahead and work your shift in this full of full gear and then on your way out you have to go to a special table that has all the equipment set up so that you can use a very prescriptive procedure where we kind of watch each other to make sure that you know at the end of the show after the end of a long period of time you don't make mistakes because you know if we make mistakes on the way out not only could we contaminate other people in the community but we can contaminate our own team and that we didn't have a lot of extra people as you can imagine compared to a normal response where there's a small pocket of a of an earthquake or a hurricane or a tornado this is it affecting the whole United States so finding people who are available to join these teams was very challenging so when you say bye bye making sure you don't make mistakes the first thing I think of is that the movie outbreak where there was a a little while hole in the hazmat suit I mean obviously that well maybe that is the issue maybe you're careful that the hazmat suit doesn't break or doesn't care yeah I know that we're watching each other you know for example and so I'm doing that it so happened to me we we double glove it happened to be at one point that you don't realize how dangerous they a paper clip can be and I had some papers in my hand I had a paper clip that it that it opened up a small hole in my outer glove which is not a big deal because we change we use the outer gloves that we don't have to exit the entire hot zone we can actually sterilize earth the outer glove take it off and then sterilize intercloud and then put a new outer glove on and do all that from patient to patient inside the hostel without having to come in and out every time so in that case you know somebody noticed that I opened up a hole in my outer glove and was able to change it but those are the kind of things that yeah we're we're watching each other we're making sure that each other and and if if people there were people that just they just didn't have the ability I mean it's complicated to focus and on how you put this equipment on before you go in and how you especially how you take it off that's we're gonna be contaminated and and we did have to change duties for some people who just didn't have that ability to focus on on putting on this equipment and take it off properly now our first responders getting story after story about the number of first responders who in fact are contracting the disease do you know if anybody on your team or teams near you I have tested possible five positive for the corona virus and does everybody tested you get tested for example you know so we do what we call risk based assessment even for not not only for the community but for providers as well and so you know nobody on our team has tested positive and and so but we have we have a surveillance kind of mechanism where your both questioned every day by text message are you having any symptoms and each year all of that and if you don't respond somebody will call you and if you don't respond to that somebody will come and get you and then we also on the way in and on the way out are taking temperatures and you know doing assessments there so you know we're watching everything real closely but no nobody's you know nobody's actually contracted it but we had you know good PP for a for the most part to begin the first few days were a little bit rock we're reusing stuff that really wasn't designed to be reused but it's probably safe to reuse some of this stuff if you clean it properly and that's what shortages right yeah because of the shortages yeah and and that who knows I mean as distinct celery we we're looking at every option at our hospital to have the ability there to re use if we need I mean I don't think it's ideal but you know we're not we don't live in a perfect world and so sometimes you have to make do with what you have yeah yeah you know I think read read used PP is probably better than none right and are the most important question of all is as first responders and you were a limited area did they cater lunch and what was the food you know that's kind of interesting for government work in general because you know you get a daily stipend for food and a lot of that the nurses in the tax everybody they'd rather have the money the misuse of the el al the team Hey if you guys want you will cater it if you want but then we don't pay you your daily stipend and across to you both say no no that's okay I'll bring my own food she all right let's take a break come back and there is plenty more I want to ask you because so well you're the only one that I know was right there at the front lines dealing with the potential patients who were coming off those cruise ships early on we'll be right back KFI a MO six forty live everywhere on the I heart radio apps

"The I heart radio app all right Dr Jim Keeney is with this out first let me start with some figures out worldwide up fifty percent since Saturday that is horrible also substantial increases in LA in Orange County riverside sambar Dino Ventura but the numbers are considering the population base literally in the hundreds and so unless this thing takes off in spike's like it did in Italy and Germany hi we're in relatively good shape all right Dr Jim Keeney ER hospital admission hospital E. are specialists ER doctor emission hospital right Jim thanks we've been trying to talk you out all last week and we couldn't because our our we are interrupted by the the White House a briefing which is going to take place again to thirty our time so Jim there you are an ER doc you wake up in the morning at what happens what do you deal what do you talk about how do you deal with people coming in the amount of equipment and protective garb let's go through all of that sure yeah I mean that this is a common unprecedented times so we have had little pieces of all of this type of reaction in response ready to go ask for other issues like when we worry about Ebola sars murders you know after disasters we have equipment set aside and we really kind of pulled together all those plans like many hostels in California we initiated our are kind of emergency operations center for the hospital which is when administrators kind of stop everything they're doing and also this roundtable on how we can solve problems related to this project specifically so you know it's kind of all hands on deck and out all eyes are focused on that so basically we have what we're doing is it spanning our capacity even though across the board almost every ER is significantly down in volume so most yards are seen about twenty to thirty percent last patient than they normally see which is a good thing right now but what we've been told by our colleagues overseas as well as in Washington in the state of Washington is do not be fooled by this law it's the calm before the storm and you're gonna be inundated with you know all these respiratory illnesses very soon so what is the inventory you have a ventilator sometime about the hospital not just the ER ventilators protective garb all right testing kids what's happening at your hospital he also you know as as everywhere we were seriously short of P. P. E. R. personal protective equipment initially which is the masks face shields you know gowns and gloves are a little easier to come by and we slowly ramp that up we still are in conservation mode where we are really don't have as much as we'd like to ask and especially if we see a large onslaught all of a sudden but again everybody's trying to we're hoping that the supply line you know opens up before the big surge happens because it's a big surge happens right now I think every house will cost America is in trouble as far as protective equipment you know that one day I want to say about the numbers I mean everyone when everybody's following a bunch of lab results right so we're following how many lab results turned positive today that has literally nothing and I mean nothing to do with what's going on in the real world so you know I. X. you expect that as we introduce more lab tests we're gonna get higher numbers but everybody acts like oh my god this thing is really exploding now that has nothing to do with it the only reason the numbers are exploding is because the number of laptops available are going up we still aren't anywhere near where we need to be there's lots of people that need to be tested results are delayed by many days sometimes up to a week so that testing still remained extremely challenging issue all right so that begs the question that I in reality and the potential to to we can combination period there is a good chunk of the population that may already be infected are out by the millions and millions is that fair to say yeah I mean I think this this is how I I've told my family and my friends you know I'm I'm getting calls all day long tax all day long you know what we do how we behave and I told everybody you know the social distancing is real and it's a good way to control it you know so basically I think you really need to walk around and do two things number one is treat yourself as if you have it okay so just get over the anxiety do I have I don't have it just pretend you have it okay and if you're not symptomatic then be happy about that right if you are symptomatic thing you can manage the symptoms band you know also don't worry about it most people do you really well with this with this particular illness but if you have those Sirius side like you're really having serious trouble breathing don't come in because you think you might have serious trouble breathing in the near future that's still doesn't help anybody but if you're actually having trouble breathing no that's the time to come in to be seen in the emergency department so number one was treat yourself as if you're positive number two is treat everybody you come in contact with them if they're positive that's what I'm doing you know and that's what I mean all right so so you're putting are you putting on protective garb I mean full almost hazmat outfits when you're dealing with patients walking into the ER no no and so the way you treat yourself as if is if everyone else is in fact it is you you know use.

"Nine o'clock Dr Jim Keeney will be with us every every week I telling us the latest on the medical front of what's going on in the corona virus and of course not only as you know what's going on nationally he deals with this season E. R. doc and doc people walking the R. Romans so the plans are in place and what's actually going on all right yeah one of the stories here and it doesn't have to be this way is false warning that's going on band hoarders bad should just take a newspaper and roll it up and slap you across the nose and go bad stop it and why well the appearance of these empty still our store shelves is that we're running out of food we are not all right the country's retailers in the dairy farmers in the meat producers say that's simply not true the food supply chain A. as in tact and in fact it it's all been ramping up because you have these suppliers across the board just adding ships and going now twenty four seven to meet the demand now we can expect to see empty shells intermittently and particularly in paper goods are yesterday and went to two stores yesterday one Ralphs where I was still able to get paper towels and toilet paper I mean it was going off the shelves very very quickly that was just a a few laughed and they were bringing in more from the back and the soon as they hit the shelves off they went we are limited to two per so I got two rolls into rolls of toilet paper in two rolls of paper towel granted they were that really crappy if you'll pardon the pun the really crappy small roles and Kroger and the real small miserable rolls of paper towels but it's you know what still there and it's a good backup and they didn't get out of church it was the normal price all right so that worked out however the food producers distributors retailers sell what they're stretched as they have never been before or haven't been for decades struggling to satisfy satisfy this demand and here is the issue hi Julie Anna Potts said chief executive the north American meat institute trade group says the food is being produced there's plenty of food in warehouses the national chicken council says there are no disruption in production ample surplus supplies of chicken in cold storage there's nine hundred fifty million pounds out there that's in cold storage bin it's it's frozen I mean it's ready to go as well as fresh but the fear is palpable the more people see empty shelves the more panic buying and the more food is out of stock temporarily and out this panic buying is testing our food systems capacity in the near term and that set orders for hot dogs at Walmart and cosco went up three hundred percent last week so hot dog plan side have added Saturday Sunday our ships have started shipping packages or stripes stores have started shipping packages they're using Memorial Day cookout meat that they're producing hot dog maker still have a year's supply of spices and the other thing that is actually helping the numbers and think about this the more restaurants closed down the more food is able to be diverted to the stores the chief executive of fresh direct says the food is here it's there it's just going to different spots in the frenzy started about two weeks ago with what they hand sanitizers and wipes and the toilet paper and the paper towels which actually was in short supply but that went off panic buying bread canned goods milk frozen foods couple of days ago you went into a pavilions and the reason Tomah pavilions as I did both yesterday two days ago the shelves in the produce section bear last a few days it's not even a stable what are you doing wiped out and the next day full stores are closing early enabling people to enable employees to stock up early as a matter of fact when I went to the yes say the stores you know how you normally see one or two I stock people stocking the shelves to get the boxes you know running and there's a couple of them there were dozens in the store restocking and out here is the timeline they were talking about chicken for example just an example it takes time ten days for a chicken eggs to incubate and hatch five to six weeks for the bird to grow into maturity and then you're talking about the production process and so this is for you folks that are into organic food right organic chicken you don't make chickens grow faster and bigger that's right bionics we need more of those no less healthier chicken is a faster way to get around the table vindicated but there's food there you could stop the panic buying because it's the production is still happening they'll be shelves full of food because they're still loading up the supply chain has not been interrupted at all benefactors increased all right I want to give it another reality check you know I mean I'm not going to stop people from buying you know it's going to stop a panic buying as they go in and panic by and they go in the next day or the next couple of days and they're still shells of the stuff that you're panic buying at some point you're going to run out of storage space at home and you're going to have enough toilet paper that's going to last you a year and a half and if you think you're going to Costco now what to buy god help you have you seen I don't know if you've been watching but occasionally KTLA flips to this they've got one of their choppers like overhead that cosco in commerce it's got hundreds of people in a line that goes all out through the parking lot in a big circle I was talking to Michelle she said the cosco her husband works that there were at least a thousand children in line waiting to get in there I stopped going to Costco last week as soon as it is on president well as soon as they shut off the samples because that was your line yeah you go there for lunch it wouldn't cost you anything John gonna child baby you're on your own all right coming up I hear is a spin on the corona virus I'll bet you haven't thought about if you're in the streaming service if you enjoy streaming services and you watch those have you noticed how many films are out there in TV documentaries about white pandemics they've been going on for decades I mean going on four thirties the forties or damn near ninety

"We are not the policemen of the world we have to get out. We can't get as involved as we have been read Bill Clinton, Barack Obama. Have we been able to curtail has he been able to curtail military involvement countries around the world. No, no. In fact, we're expanding involvement in central Africa. And that was a train that. Left the station during the Obama administration. He is so bored with details that I don't think he could point to half the countries where thousands of Americans are deployed, and I'm frankly glad about that. But the down there, you know, the most prominent picture that we saw was the woman carrying the two kids, and diapers and all that. And there was a tear gas canister right next door. In the video from dozen different angles a border patrol guy throws. That was thrown does CS tear-gas grenade. He threw it over the fence and someone up at the fence rolled it downhill towards that woman. It was what's called a secondary throw. And that's what happens professional protesters now that when the cops throw or shoot tear gas at you someone with gloves on picks it up and throws it back 'cause you know, stick it to the man. And so somebody a protester picked up the lobbed grenades and threw it down into that at the bottom of the ravine either that or the board patrol has, you know, fricken Clayton Kershaw working off season on the border patrol. Yeah. I'll bet you. The Israelis are thrilled that this happened because it takes all the pressure and the attention off of them using the tear gas at the border at the that the border with Gaza. I don't in fact, I don't know. I don't know a nation on earth that doesn't have tear gas in their police arsenal. It is the point of tears. Gases to smell run away. Not to sit there and take in gigantic lungfuls of it. Like, I did the WTO in one thousand nine hundred nine for four days in a row. All the all the reporters at KIRO, Shannon. Wasn't there yet we black took Bong hits of teargas? Here's another fun fact, horses not affected by kiss. Oh, that's why cops in riot gear riding a horse horses are great for crowd control because cop is worrying amass. But the horse is not affected by curious. I know if I ever get asset on double jeopardy. I that's a great question that I'll answer or get a bunch of riders and horses. And then what do you do experiment? You throw a tear gas in the room.

"For so many people out of their homes. Some say the tragedies have been difficult to process this. Cal Lutheran student says campus feels like a ghost town. I don't know if it's fear his anticipation coming back, but I know me personally, I had issues coming back. Once I evacuated from Westlake village. School officials say classes are on a normal schedule but exams have been pushed back a week. Red flag warnings are in effect for most of so Cal through at least tomorrow night, dry conditions could last even longer but national weather service meteorologist Kirk Kaplan told wakeup call a change maybe on the way, I would say a week maybe maybe nine days from now getting to thanksgiving week. We have a shot of some rain, especially in the later part of the Cleveland thanksgiving could be to be wet one humidity levels today could drop as low as three percent smoke from the fires can make breathing difficult for people with lung problems such as asthma or emphysema. Even if you don't have those type of conditions though, I mean, really irritate your lungs and then throw you into an asthma type attack. If you're that close. Dr Jim Keeney is chief of staff elect at mission hospital in mission viejo, and he told the Bill Handel show that smoke and blow hundreds of miles from where a fire is happening. The state's most destructive fire is now almost these states to is among I should say the states to deadliest twenty nine bodies have been found in the burden zone around the northern California mountain town of paradise Butte county sheriff Corey Honi says six of the bodies were found yesterday. Five of them were in homes. One was in a vehicle. The sheriff says identifying the remains can be difficult often.

"Monday, November twelfth the fire continues on the Wolseley fire is at this point. Fifteen percent contained the Santa Anna Windsor back today. Not as bad, but still it's going to be tough. And of course, the biggest fire north the campfire twenty nine people dead at least two hundred missing which means we're going to see a massive amount of deaths reported. Okay, now, a quick word about how much all of this costs. And it is not only in terms of fire suppression fire mitigation just money now, everybody has fire insurance. And if you noticed our home insurance is going up up and up. I notice mine is rising dramatically every year and the answer is obvious because when a home goes down, this isn't a. Personal injury claim or a car accident in costs four or five thousand dollars or ten thousand dollars. This is an insane amount of money that has to be paid. And if you're talking one hundred and fifty homes summoned Malibu to rebuild homes in Malibu home. That is worth five six eight million dollars. You're talking about couple million dollars in just rebuilding costs. Multiply that at one hundred and fifty homes how about up in paradise sixty five hundred homes destroyed and even let's say building a new cod average of two hundred thousand dollars to rebuild a house. Can you imagine what kind of numbers though, those are? And I can't imagine anybody who owns a home that doesn't have fire insurance. If you have a mortgage with a lender you've got fire insurance. It's just that simple. And let me give you just a quick status. About how horrible is the twenty eighteen North American fire season is twenty five percent worse than twenty seventeen. As of August. Twentieth. Of this year, four point five million acres. I have been destroyed at least one hundred and ten wildfires. Burning two million of acres or talking about over the last few weeks twenty eight thousand firemen to combat them. I mean, just the cost and it's just astronomical. The biggest fire we're talking about mileage wise of five hundred miles into Sinoe fire the car fire caused a fire NATO. And it's not just here on the west in the west Canada. Scandinavia Russia has had massive massive numbers of fires. So. Global warming. Oh, huge huge. We'll talk about that a little bit later. But as far as the experts are concerned, I'm going to go through this, and we'll come visit this later on in terms of the science of global warming. It has everything to do with their other causes. All right. The rising temperatures global warming shorter winners global warning more pests drought. Global warming. And there's a whole science that you have temperatures at rise increase evaporation that draws moisture out of the soils makes a land dryer. So it becomes a circular issue. And it actually goes down into the abyss shorter winter pests like the pine bark beetle don't die off doing the winter. So they're able to hit trees more. And when they hit trees and kill them. What happens? Well, of course, you've got dry trees, which now our fuel now a little bit of history. And when I saw this I went, whoa. Here's what happened in south west Cal in California. You think this is fairly new in the eighteen eighties. Let's go back to the eighteen eighty s. Foresters in the southwest and in California, particularly encourage more young trees to grow. They were immigrants that came from Europe, and they planted all of these trees and then ranchers arou-. I'll ranchers allowed their livestock to over grill. Overgrazed the grass which then eliminated the source of ground. Fires and allowed more seedlings to survive in the forest grew denser, and in the nineteen twenties. They started putting out the fires which you're ready for this unintentionally allowed even more trees to grow look at how this becomes domino and the trees there wasn't enough nutrients in this two in the soils support them because we're too many of them. So the trees grew thin and weak, and then the Beatles took advantage of the week trees killing them and all of a sudden dense dry wood. And it was in the nineteen twenties. When all of this really started exploding. Did you the plains Indians us fire? They actually had controlled burns in the planes. I mean, so the issue of man controlling fire has been around for a long long time and using fire. Well, it's gone. The other way, we're no longer using fire fire is using us. And the firefighting we have to do is completely crazy. And if you look at the stats, man, it's getting worse and worse and worse. And the argument is I don't know how much of an argument is that global climate change, which of course, is global warming when sea levels rise when temperatures go up three and four degrees centigrade. How can you not call that global warming? It's beyond me when you have ice shelves melting like crazy, how is that not global warming? And then of course, the arguments. Well, you've got one glacier over here. That's actually increasing in size, and you've got various spots around the world that are actually colder. Okay. Look at world temperature. Bottom line is we're doing everything to exacerbate the situation, and it's no longer the tipping point. Remember, we used to talk about the tipping point where we're going to go over the tipping point in terms of global warming. We've we've blown right past that one. Now, it's a question of how much we're going to be able to mitigate and Wayne doing such a good job either. And there's more science to this too. In terms of the soot in the air the carbon dioxide, which is released by burning trees. So instead of sucking up the carbon dioxide it's released and that causes even more problems. I mean, this whole thing is a mess. Live someplace again, if you're worried about worried about fires and Ortega great place to live. No fires. Hey, by the way, speaking of fires. I just got updated numbers on the Wolsey fire fire in LA and Ventura counties. It's now at ninety one thousand five hundred acres but twenty percent contained well, and that's probably gonna change today. Yeah. I think by the end of the day, you're going to see it go the other way in terms of containment. Yeah. And in terms of the number of acres that is probably gonna go up. I know I'm a pessimist. I always look at everything in the worst case scenario, but hey, my entire life is the worst case scenario that usually I'm Henrietta happy. And I got to agree with you on this one it I don't see the numbers going in the right direction coming up. Dr Jim Keeney chief of staff elected mission hospitals going to tell us how at the end of all this when the fires are over. We're gonna die and I'll be back with Jim on that one KFI AM six forty.

"Live in such an isolated world where people continue to lick your feet all the time. And tell you how great you are. And what a groundbreaking Madonna has her own ego monster, and as I learned in yoga your ego is not your Amiga, Shannon. Don't even know what that to the Bank weekdays at ten KFI. KFI handle here. We're going through the props voter guy. Twenty eighteen on the handle page today is five and six I spend a few minutes talking about prop five the let's hate the poor and the disabled and help the rich is what prop five is. I'm breaking down this time around. I'm actually going to help the seniors and the disabled Hoke God handle, but some I'm running a temperature. That's the problem. Okay. Now propsects probably the most controversial proposition on the ballot this year. And that is the repeal of the twelve cents a gallon gas tax that came into being a year ago in two thousand seventeen passed by the legislature the way it's written that that is horrible in and of itself because it does not say one word about the twelve cent increase or repeal. Here's the wording eliminate certain road repair. And transportation funding requires. Certain fuel taxes and vehicle fees. Be approved by the electorate. And they'll say a word about repealing the gas tax because they purposely want in the way, it's written. Clearly, the attorney general who writes this stuff clearly wants this gas tax to say to stay in place. Okay. So it's so some people are saying it's just a repeal the gas tax. That's simple. That's it. We don't want the gas tax a lot more complicated than that. As everything always is. And that is the gas tax is for the benefit of infrastructure repair, maintenance and just repairing the crap that we have why do we need? This is we already have measures in place other proposition ballot measures that we pass to help build infrastructure or to maintain infrastructure. Well, the problem is we have let it lag for so long the cost of repair and maintenance has skyrocketed had we take care of it had we taken care of it when we should have. Kept the maintenance schedule up, we wouldn't be in this mess and therein lies the argument that our government state government does not live within its means. Does not take into consideration that the state must be maintained. And all it does is spend spend spend because it likes programs, and there's the argument between we'll fiscal conservatives and liberals, which are state is fiscal conservatives believe you live within your means. I mean, that's one of the things that fiscal conservatives want to do also, gee, we don't want certain programs because they cost too much. See conservatives. I don't think are really indicate starving. I don't buy that. Well, maybe some are or into kids not going to school oriented to adults and having after school programs, and adult education, etc. What they're saying is that we don't have the money to do it. We can't afford it. And so here, we go with the proposition that says we're going to get rid of that Bill that was passed because the taxes are too high because that's the philosophy of a liberal government. And that is no matter what happens. And of course, we're not gonna take care of what we need. Now. We'll worry about it later. We'll later is here. And that means we need more taxes. Let's kick it a twelve percent tax. That's a big deal by way, twelve percent tax not one quarter of one percent sales tax, which you normally see this is twelve cents a gallon. This is a ton of money. And so I am I'm conflicted on this one. Because if we don't spend the money. Then the then we become a third world country in terms of roads, and bridges, etc. Because we're on our way there anyways with the potholes. I mean, we're Somalia effectively, it's Yemen. Which is all dirt roads. I mean, we're headed in that direction. Obviously, it's a little hyperbole. And so we need to fix the infrastructure desperately. We don't have the money because the government our state government hasn't figured out how how to spend money responsibly or governess and the only way to do it is to raise taxes. I mean, I've often said the the only answer here is to move the hell out of California. Go to Nebraska. I mean, I don't know why Nebraska, maybe Nebraska has horrible roads. And I don't even know it. But it's you see the conflict there, we desperately need the infrastructure. The only way to pay for the infrastructure is through taxes because the legislature cannot in any way government where the government the entire government in California kid in no way, govern this state without spending more money than it brings in. Although under. Under Brown, we have a surplus. But then again, there's a whole issue we have a surplus because the economy is doing great, and our entire income base is based on income taxes. And when the economy goes south, the wealthy people who pay all the taxes in this state don't make as much money when the economy goes south these folks are not on salary. So what ends up happening is money drops like crazy income drops like crazy, and therefore the income to the state drops like crazy, and therefore here, we are we owe money, we're indefinite. Oh my God. We can't pay for it. You see what a mess? All this is. I mean, it's you're screwed. No matter which way to go. And because we have the legislature, and we are going to have a governor who are super liberal who truly believe that living within our means is number four or five or eight on the priority scale. It is far more important for programs to be established. And we have to pay for them because we don't have the money because we're spending on other programs that we've established. So let's go ahead and tax. One of the taxes being the tax that was passed in two thousand seventeen the twelve cents a gallon. I mean, it's we're screwed any way we go on this. I'm probably gonna just flip a coin on this one. Because there's no good decision. None either way too bad decision. Whether you vote, yes. Or no. I mean, it's it's not like a prop eight the dialysis one. Were you vote a certain way in a lot of people die which I'm fine with because they cost so much money. Anyway, heavy keeping people alive. Whether that's a lot of tax money. No tax money. It is. But you don't feel that way. Oh, I don't. Okay. Maybe you'd. So we're Bill one of your closest friends deals with that issue. That's right. Yeah. Now. That's true. Okay. But I'm sure as hell. I'm not offering Hiba kidney. No, you know, what I have to talk. I've talked to Marjorie the kids if they're willing to offer him a kidney 'cause they love him. Because I sure as hell won't. But maybe they will. Okay. So prop six it's a flip of a coin. Because it's all bad. All right coming up medical news with Dr Jim Keeney. This is KFI AM six forty. Let's check in with Jennifer Jones Lee, the.
