"Everyone seems to be facing or just starting to come to grips with except that is the president in many of the people around him. You cannot say whoever he hasn't had some the brightest minds at his disposal or that he is not been warned. We alluded to it at the top today Dr Anthony Vouching livestream with his boss NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins pulled no punches. The current state is really not good in the sense that as you know, we have been in a situation. We were averaging about twenty thousand new cases a day two days ago, it was at fifty, seven, thousand, five hundred, so within a period of a week and a half. We've almost doubled the number of cases so in answer to your first question we are still knee deep in the first wave of this and I would say this would not be considered a wave. It was a surge or resurgence of infections superimposed upon a baseline Francis. That really never got down to where we wanted to go. Back now with Dr Peter Hotels and Professor William Haseltine professor housing is it becoming more and more evident that at least in the United States the only way we are to go back to any semblance of pre code, life is for a vaccine to come along. Is that is that? The only hope. Well I hope it's not the only hope. I think behavior change. People is the actual answer, but there are two solutions from the medical world. One is a vaccine that everybody's talking about. In my opinion, it's going to come, but it will be partially effective, and we don't know for how long it will last. There's another solution which is coming very quickly, which is a bridge to an effective vaccine, and that is the use of combinations of antiviral drugs to suppress the virus, and to protect people from being infected in the first place. We know that works for something called respiratory cyncial virus, another virus that infects this in this case, instant is a children. We know that it works for Malaria and so we were very hopeful. We actually know. Know and have the drugs in the model for this is HIV. We've developed drugs and there's some spectacular new drugs on the near horizon for controlling HIV. We can do this, so that is a double strategy from the medical world, providing drugs to prevent infection for those who are exposed which be a bridge to a safe and effective vaccine, for which we will have time to test to make sure it's both safe and effective. But professor housing if if states now aren't able to do, contact tracing because there are simply too many cases. I mean that's. You know in in a war movie. This is where you know you call an air on your own positions, because the enemy is in the wire I mean it's. It would seem to be a huge concern. just from a social distancing standpoint You still argued that people. As you said people need to kind of take control of this themselves and and. Do social distancing wearing masks that that it's up to each of us now. That is unfortunately about where we are now. However it you'll see is the moment there's a way to prevent infection for those who are exposed with drug treatment which there will be. People will flock to be tested if they've been exposed once. There's a way to prevent you from being affected the complete mind changes we've seen that with a number of diseases and again HIV for example once we had drugs to treat people with HIV. People want it to be tested before there was no incentive to beef days now. If you're tested, are exposed. You might have to be quarantine for two or three weeks. That instead of taking a couple of pills, every day is going to be your alternative I think you're gonNA. See A mind chains. This is this isn't forever. It's for a while. Dr Hotels. What do you in terms of where you are in Houston what needs to happen? What what? What are the steps? Well! Let me just follow Dr Paisley. I absolutely agree I mean. We will have partially protective vaccines, and we will have various forms of prophylaxis monoclonal antibodies, but it's not going to happen for several months at the very earliest maybe six months, maybe a year, and during that period, a lot of damage will happen at the rate of acceleration. We're seeing We have catastrophic numbers of deaths, so we need. We still need that national roadmap and plan and we can. Can do this. We can stop this virus if there's the political will and leadership and we can discuss how that could be done. Yeah Dr. Peter Hotels Professor William Hamilton as always. Thank you so much. Really appreciate it just ahead of a deeper dive into the question. The White House press secretary had trouble answering today about why president trump attacked a black NASCAR driver and defended the confederate flag. WanNa talk more now about something we mentioned at the top the program president, trump's tweet about NASCAR driver Wallis, which wasn't just faculties in its attack on NASCAR is only black driver and his top tier. It was racist, just plain and simple I mean when you gut reaction to combat a stew of negative stories and pull numbers is to pointed the only black person in a room full of white guys and. And say well? What about that guy, there and lie about that guy and makeup things? He definitely didn't do so that you can get out of a jam, and then for good measure bear hug the confederate flag. Just in case it wasn't clear to your base. Whose side you're on. That is racist. Just for good measure. We WanNA play again. Kelly macanese attempt and I emphasize attempt to justify her bosses words. What is the president's position? Does he think NASCAR made a mistake by banning? So. He said he spoke to him this morning about this. And he said he was not making a judgement, one way or the other I the intent of the tweet was to. Stand up for the men and women of Nascar, the fans, and those who have gone this rush to judgment of the media to call something a hate crime. When in fact, the FBI report concluded was not an intentional racist act, and it very much mirrors. When there have been a rush to judgement, let's say with the Covington boys or with Jesse smollet. was ruled on the confederate flag because he think it was a mistake for Nascar to. The president said he wasn't making a judgement. One way or the other. You're focusing on one word at the very bottom of a tweet that's completely taken out of context and neglecting the complete rush to judgment. On things because they for that's what he said. The president was noting the fact that in aggregate this notion that Nascar men and women who have gone and who are being demeaned, called racist and being accused in some venues of committing a hate crime and gets to individual I. Those allegations were just dead wrong. The Press Secretary for President of the United. States for America trying to justify the president's embrace the confederate flag. Joining snap because sellers. Former democratic state lawmakers South Carolina also author of the new book, my vanishing country, also with chief political correspondent Dana Bash Bakari sellers. I don't i. don't even know what the question is here I mean. See Kelly mcenaney. Any kind of you know contorted herself in order to somehow claim that the president. Isn't. Siding on the side of the confederate flag just it's so blatant and obvious. Difficult when your boss is racist, but let's look at it in the entire context of the president today. Not only did he ask for Bubba? Wallace the lone black driver to apologize, not only did. He embraced the confederate flag, but he also talked about the fact that the Washington redskins and Cleveland Indians. Should not change their names he he talked about black on black crime. Then I'M GONNA. Use Air quotes with that in cities like Chicago and New York even went out today in a tweet, and said the China virus and so today he hit on every single racist note. Possible and I want people to understand that if someone tweets all of these things. Let alone tweets all of these things in one day. The only thing you can deduce is that this individuals races. My disappointment actually is with the people around him I. Come on TV and say that a lot because it seems to fall on deaf ears, but Where are. The good white folk on the Republican Party. Where are these individuals who claim to be able to say black lives matter, but still yet..

"Lot. South Korea's. They called me. They sent job. You're doing. Here's the bad part. When you test of what you do testing to that extent. You'RE GONNA. Find more people. You'RE GONNA. Find more cases. So I said to my people snow the testing down, please. So, if these six thousand people who attended the trump rally follow medical professionals, advice and try to get tested many of them. Able to get tested because Donald Trump, said slow the testing down tomorrow. Donald Trump was going to another place where the coronavirus is on. There is Phoenix Arizona Arizona. Has set a new state record for coronas hospitalizations. Last seven days Arizona now ranks twelfth in the nation for cases per one hundred thousand people, Donald Trump plans to deliver a campaign speech in Phoenix tomorrow venue with a seating capacity of three thousand people joining us now Dr Peter Hotels. Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and he's the CO director of the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine and Development and Dr Your reaction to what the president was saying about how much testing we have done, and how we have done an extraordinary amount of testing while at the same time. Saying, he's trying to slow it down. Yeah I mean the testing never really got fully up to speed in the United States at the level that we needed especially in the workplace, and we never had the level of contact tracing. We never had the level of. What we call syndrome surveillance where you pick up. cases of clusters of fever cases. We never had a metropolitan area. Epidemiologic maps is guidelines, so our response overall nationally has been inadequate. My big worry now is we're starting to see this very steep rise in cove in nineteen cases in Florida Arizona. And Texas so there's this massive resurgence because we opened up, the states are prematurely and here in Houston, the rises especially worrisome, and it's not just number of cases it's as you described in Phoenix big increases in hospitalizations in ICU admissions, and this is where it really gets to be worrisome, because once there's that surge on the see. That's where the mortality rates go up. Is Staff get overwhelmed? And then you could reproduce what we saw. New York City over the spring, and so I'm worried about Phoenix I'm worried about Houston Dallas Austin and some of the Florida cities, and this is going this potentially could be. A initiative that's as bad as anything. We saw earlier this spring in New York. A doctor quickly before we go. Are we going to be able to trace the effects of the trump of pandemic denial tour of from Oklahoma to Arizona? I mean why pick these two cities. Why pick the to to the worst cities in terms of the the rate of rise? I guess next they'll come to Dallas and Houston. It just doesn't make any sense this is this is putting. People in jeopardy. Dr Peter Hotels Thank you very much for joining us once again tonight. We Dr Hotels gets tonight's last word..
"dr peter hotels" Discussed on The Highwire with Del Bigtree
"Post administration. That doesn't seem very thorough, and then when you look on by the way, there's no placebo group. There's no placebo group anywhere in here. They didn't give you a saline group. Not only was it not twenty, thousand, five thousand. They didn't have the ten thousand in the Placebo Group that Paul off every scene goes through. Let's look at the other hepatitis B vaccine. Of Axe again you can find van written right in the paperwork himself. In three clinical studies, four hundred thirty four doses were administered to a hundred and forty seven healthy infants and children up to ten years old, one, hundred, forty, seven, that seems like a far cry from twenty thousand to me again zero Placebo Group, Paul and they were monitored for five whole days. Oh, my God. You Got Peter Hottest thing i. don't see how when they started trial at. At the end of the summer, he said, remember you said as my understanding Madonna isn't going to start a trial until the end of the summer. I don't see how then they'll be able to have him back seen ready to go by January because we shouldn't really even understand the results of those trials until he said the third quarter of two thousand twenty one so even Dr Peter Hotels seems to think a trials should last at least a year. I would say a lot more since every drug. We take five to ten years in a trial, but these scientists are upset with the fact that. We're not GONNA look at it for a year, which wouldn't be long enough and on showing you vaccines. They're pointing to the gold standard by days four days. You see folks. This is what Paul opposite didn't want what he didn't want. WAS AAS and you and the world starting to ask the appropriate questions about vaccination. How long were they studied for? How long do they go through safety trials? What was the Placebo Group? was there one at all, and you can tell, and by the way the reason I think Paul up and has such a problem with this is that every headline is telling us? There's two groups that Donald Trump. Trump really wants to make this available to this fall. That is doctors are frontline, defense, and african-americans for those of you that are african-american. I would say I would maybe tell you to go and look at the Tuskegee experiment and ask yourself. Are they lining up another Tuskegee using African? American citizens I duNno I started asking that question, but bring it up again. Let's look at that headline. Bill Gates says healthcare workers may get a corona virus shot within eighteen months to scientists race to develop a vaccine well, obviously, the ramping it up and Paul off. It doesn't like the idea that he himself is about to become the subject. All right, and then really quickly just to talk about another back seen back in April of last year. We talked about the Mr Trials. were. There were several trials that we brought up in our show. That had a total of eight hundred. And fifty participants in the trial, and between thirty and forty percent of the eight hundred had serious Dasell, intestinal and upper respiratory illnesses from the vaccine. Just about half of them got sick from the vaccine. There was no placebo group, Paul. And therefore it got approved not twenty thousand, not ten thousand Placebo Group, no placebo group that away, and only eight hundred people half of whom got really sick, and that got approved so Paul I guess all I'm asking for. Is this since you seem to be developing a brilliant conscience and I know that you really do care about people I have always said that even to your face when I met you I think that what you want is for people. People to be healthy I hope you will join me in beginning to really sound the alarm as you just stated on any back see, that was not tested on one thousand individuals with ten thousand in the Placebo Group with about two or three years length of time so that we can see the vaccines cause autoimmune disease. Welcome to the party. Paul is great to have you all right well. It doesn't end there, folks. I'M NOT GONNA Admonish Paul because. He might be wrong about some of his stats I'm really help think it's really great that he has stepped forward to call out this vaccine. We really need to okay. This vaccine super dangerous. I know that it's just a part of the agenda. They just GonNa use this vaccine to break down your rights to reject vaccine. They'll force it on all of us, and then we'll come the title wave of all the other vaccines that they're gonNA force you into, so this is just being used to fight for. Their agenda mentioned the top of. Of the show, but this is a legal action in essence. We're taking for those of you just joining us for the first time. You're never gonNA see a show like the high wire. We're not only the only ones reporting truth, the only ones showing your science from around the world and telling you what's actually going on, we actually commit ourselves to making a difference with the science that we find so you could go to the high wire dot com to look all of the things that we're working on. Plead subscribe right now because. Like we're doing. They're going to want to censor us. Right off space, book or Youtube or something else, please. Will you go ahead and sign up at our website, so we can always find you no matter where we have to run to to write you letters and bringing the information, but this is a citizen's petition. Right here to the FDA that just got sent out. Last night. This is very very important, because it's based on. Paul up and just said now you can find this on our website at I can decide dot org, but let me just read you the gist of what we are demanding and by the way this is not like anything else we've done. The FDA has a portal with which if you make the appropriate petition and put your own self at risk, which is what I'm going to describe to. They have to take this into council and look at the rules and see if they are going to make a difference and what is the difference we're asking for? Here's what we want from. All of the Corona Virus Vaccine Trials here we go. All right to begin with the action requested number one is to hear by requested the commissioner a require off as two and three trials vaccines against covid nineteen include a placebo. Control Group. B. The placebo shelby a saline injection without anything added at the back backseat and saline or distinguishable opaque byles should be used..
Coronavirus Update with Dr. Peter Hotez
"My Name is Dr Peter. Hotels and I believe that everybody in the United States deserve access to new drugs and therapies vaccines for cove in nineteen regardless of their ability to pay Arina. Sorry Dr Hotels. Thank you so much for joining us again. A lot has happened since last. We spoke some of it. Good and a lot of it bad. Can you just give us an overview about the status of the pandemic in America right now? Well of course the big over you for the US was this really horrible humanitarian tragedy in New York New Jersey Connecticut in the northeast. And we're still not nearly done. It's probably still going to go on for a few more weeks but I never thought we would see that level of the station in terms of death and admissions to the hospital in intensive care unit. And it's given me a real perspective on how things could go terribly wrong here in the United States so for me. Now it's all hands on deck and making certain that what happened in New York especially in places like Queens New York which you know I know you know very well would never happen again elsewhere in the US. Well I mean you call that a humanitarian crisis. Why do you identify it as that? Well it's the level of suffering that I'm seeing and it goes beyond you know it's not just the ticks of the number of deaths. I mean we're hearing about scores of schoolteachers. For instance getting sick and dying. And even you know there was an article that really broke my heart about the doormen New York. Yeah numbers of them have gotten sick and died and I went to medical school and Graduate School in New York at Cornell and Rockefeller. And you know you'd have a bad day in the lab and you just take a walk and the only people up at that hour would be guys standing in the doorway and on some evenings. They'd be your only friend and you'd have a little. You know nothing little informal chat with them and and that all those people are getting so sick and dying is really heartbreaking. So that the situation in New York and New Jersey and the thing that I'm really concerned about now is whether we really learned our lessons from New York and New Jersey. Why do I say that's so? For instance here in Texas. We saw what was happening in New York. We implemented social distancing early on really ahead of the virus so we never saw peak anything close to resembling what happened in New York and New Jersey. And that's been great. We've not had a huge number of admissions in the Texas Medical Center to the hospital the ICU we've got some. But it's definitely a manageable problem but now I think we're starting to hear from the governor that now they're anxious to open things up again right and relaxed social distancing even though a number of the epidemiologic models and I know the epidemiologic models are not perfect they have their flaws are basically saying for some states like Texas. We need to maintain that social distancing until June. One until we go back to containment vote and the problem is that the governor's in many parts of the south and the West. Just don't have the appetite for that. They're going to open things up earlier than June one. And maybe even by next week or the week afterwards and I understand the realities of closing down the economy. I understand the hardships that many people are facing that. They're not getting a paycheck and I understand the need to open segments of the economy. The piece that bothers me is that I'm not confident. We have the public health infrastructure. That's been put into place in order to manage what's going to be a new surge. We don't have places of business well set up to do testing a regular basis. We don't have the staff in place from public health agencies to do the contact tracing. We don't have syndrome surveillance activities in place so I'm very worried not so much for the next few weeks but I'm worried we're going to start to see a brand new round of searches that could even dwarf the ones. We've been seeing what happens starting over the summer. So I'm very worried and going on cable news a lot explaining this that come July and August if we don't have national plan in place not only around the economic recovery but linking at the public health we could even see unfolding situation. That's worse than we saw in March and now the first couple of weeks of April. Well the thing that I don't understand is has it. Peaked and with governors wanting to open up their states. Will there even be a single national peak or are we just going to keep peaking state by state and not get on the same page with this? And is it necessary to get on the same page? That's basically the worry right. The peak in New York according to the models is already happened a few days ago and one in Texas maybe in another week or so and then the numbers are starting to go down. The problem is we often forget. This is like the eye of a hurricane just because the first wave of the hurricane hit and you see the eye doesn't mean I go outside and play. It means the second part is coming so that part has to be considered and then not having a system in place to prevent a bigger resurgence in the summer of great concern. Because if you look at the models and yeah anybody can do this by the way. It's that's what I'm thinking about the models that they've set up in Seattle is anybody can go to just go to health data dot org and you can click on your state and see what's happening the models basically show a peak and then decline going all the way to August and don't really try to predict what's going to happen after that because they don't know what's going to happen in terms of relaxing social distancing by understand the urgency to relax social distancing. It's just that with out a plan in place for my during it. We're just asking for a huge problem. Potentially much bigger than the one. We've already faced
Nifty Schiff: Adam Schiff Fights Corruption
"So congressman the first thing I wanNA talk to you about obviously is the corona virus. If I were to have thought that we would be in this place even just a month ago. I'm pretty up to date on the news. And when we started to hear about corona virus it just felt like it was so far away that it could never touch us and now every aspect of life in America has changed in ways that most of us just could not have imagined so. Just walk us through your thoughts on the federal government's response thus far. Well I think you're absolutely right. The speed at which this has moved has been just breathtaking. And I think we're all trying to come to grips with what it means in the near term what it means in the long term for the country in terms of the response we lost precious time frankly while the administration tried to downplay the significance of this even when it became quite apparent that we were not going to be able to keep this virus out of the country. That was never a practical idea. We could try to limit our exposure. But it was going to come here. We lost very important. Time in developing tests and distributing them widely and being able to essentially surveilled this virus where it was and do so at a time. I think when it was very important to try to minimize the spread. That's time we'll never get back and I think that for quite a while the president to use this as more of a public relations crisis than a health crisis Those days are now over but we have a lot of catching up to do and and sadly taught a time. Now in the Congress. We moved to pass a couple bills in rapid succession to try to surge resources to hospitals and clinics to try to speed the development of a vaccine to try to make sure in the second bill that we provided for paid sick. Leave that we've provided extended unemployment compensation food for kids. That would normally get their food at school and other really key emergency measures but even those are really a down payment on what's necessary to address both the health crisis and the verging economic crisis. Talking to Dr Peter Hotel has he is most concerned with the fact that regardless of people's ages it seems like those in the healthcare system are getting hit as hard as someone say past seventy. There's been a couple of ER doctors that are now on respirators. And they're in their forties or fifties. That's not supposed to have them to learn their seventies. There's so much that they don't know but what he said was in. This is what I wanted to pass on to you is he said the government needs to put together some plan for convalescent antibody therapy for our first responders and our doctors and basically what that is patients who cover from Cova nineteen. They develop antibodies to the virus. And those anybody can be collected from a blood donation of a recovered patient and then processed and then turned around either as there be for potentially sick patients or as temporary preventative care for first responders or frontline healthcare workers. And it's a therapy. That's over a hundred years old and was used with success during the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic so I wanted to pass that onto you convalesce. An antibody therapy. He thinks it needs to start happening right now as they're working for the vaccine whoever that makes a great deal of sense and that's something. I will look into immediately. I would hope and presume that are out of government in terms of the administration and our healthcare. Experts are already pencilling out and planning this. Let's not take anything for granted these days absolutely true. So what does it feel like in Congress right now I mean? Is there a sense of urgency and just the functionality of how Congress works I mean? I've walked those halls? You guys are in very close proximity to one another in your offices and with your staff. What's going on in Congress right now? There's a real sense of urgency. We're obviously hearing a great deal from our constituents our neighbors our families our friends and we're particularly concerned with taking every measure. We can't flatten this curve. And do it. We can't push up good information. That's why really eager to participate in your podcast. The more good information we can get out there. The more that people can take steps on their own to mitigate the spread of the more weekend relieve some of the enormous pressure and strain that has been placed on our healthcare system and save lives. But also you know. All the members are deeply concerned about the economic impacts of closing down all restaurants and bars. In movie theaters. And places where people congregate obviously. It's impacting anyone connected with those industries in any way shape or form or those that are the customers and the customers dry up those businesses dry up and so I think there's also a sense of urgency to deal with the economic impacts. I think that'll be the subject of the next big bill. Coming out of Congress and many of us are advocating that we send cash to each and every American immediately to help get them through this difficult time that help keep struggling businesses. Afloat WanNa make sure that the small business administration is fully funded and can provide emergency loans to small businesses but in terms of the mechanics at the capital. We are doing as much teleworking as possible. We're trying to be a good example as well but there are certain things that we're going to need to be present for. We're GONNA need to come in. I think in vote on a new package even now the package that passed the house. We're still running into difficulties among some of the members with that. And if that's so foreshadow of future difficulties where one or two members can hold up Relief for an entire nation than we're going to have to make sure that we're all hands on deck if that's necessary to steer the country through this and how about the White House. Do you feel like they're working with Congress in a nonpartisan way. I'm not even GONNA say bipartisan. Because this should be zero. Partisan or does it still feel like there's headbutting speaker? Pelosi and MNUCHIN administration have been able to negotiate with each other and I think that the experts at the agencies people like Dr Fao Cheer Providing Their Best Advice and recommendations You know the president is as he will always be for the president's always about him and that makes it very difficult to negotiate with their two. Yes when someone's predominant conservatives for themself but we hope that he rises to the occasion they're certainly. I think a different tone in the last day or two in the press conference although he still has a year to lash out at others and the fights that he's been provoking with state governors are very. I think that mental to getting an appropriate federal and state and local response.
Are we doing enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
"Joined by. Dr Ezekiel Emanuel former Obama. White House Health Policy Advisor. He's Vice Provost Global Initiatives University of Pennsylvania and Dr Peter Hotels Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine Doctor Manual. When we start with you. Where do you see us right now? Are we doing enough in terms of large scale social disruption and changes to slow the transmission of this epidemic? So first of all. I've been saying for several weeks now that it's going to get worse before it gets better. Parsley it's GonNa get worse because we have testing. That's just going to show us how prevalent the illness is. It's also getting worse because we know we have more community acquired infections as I mentioned to someone today. You know one week ago. We weren't even talking about new Rochelle and now new. Rochelle is a major topic in New York. And that's a lockdown and if we focus on new Rochelle without thinking about all the other places that this virus is maybe Washington. Dc maybe the suburbs of Baltimore. Who knows where the problem is? We need a more systematic less uneven response. That has to be pretty uniform. Because just 'cause we're seeing it new Rochelle doesn't mean Rochelle's the only place in New York that Scott and that response does have to include things like much more prevalent testing so we really have a handle on who's got it and who doesn't and a really good model is South Korea if you look at their trends you can see that. They're beginning to bend in South Korea. We also do need to inform people. We use the term social distancing like everyone knows what it means. It's not immediately obvious to people what that entails and how much you need to be separate from people explain to what should people know about but a large part of it. You people have come up with all these numbers no more than one hundred people to meet no more. The issue is density. How close are you to people? How easy is it for the droplets to spread? How much are you sort of packed in light sardines or not and that real? I mean that's a physical thing That is really important and I do think we probably need to educate people to minimize the. They're our contact and to stay home more. You can go out where there's no one else if you're going walking in the woods or something or going to a place where there are other people But I do think Restricting how we move around is going to be important I will note that not every but most of the Ivy League schools now for example colleges mine included. We're going online. The second half of the semester is all going to be online. Students aren't going to be in. Dormitories accepts students. That can go back to their home country and still complete the semester. So you are seeing a lot of action. But it's not concerted and that's what it's not systematic and that's what's bothering me Dr Hotels. We've been checking with you throughout the unfolding of the goal pandemic and I'm curious. Are we learning more about the virus itself about the basics about the transmission rate? Which seems to be maybe lower than at first. We thought the fatality rate the incubation period. Where is our knowledge right now about this so the transmission rate still seems to be? Pretty High Dr Fao. She mentioned. It's probably a significantly higher than the influenza as well as the mortality rate. But the you know just to echo and reinforce some of the things zeke Doctor Emmanuel was was saying we've learned a few things from a recent analysis. My colleague Mark Lipchitz sit at Harvard School of Public Health Chan School of Public Health together with a student a doctoral student. Ruan Lee didn't analysis of the Chinese cities in terms of how severe the epidemic is with the extreme example being Wuhan rare nine thousand people wound up in and severely ill with two thousand in the ICU versus city. Like Long Joe where there was only twenty a big difference right and it looked like it's primarily to do to how quickly you got on top of things after sustained community transmission started. So they let it go for six weeks. Before they implemented aggressive control and testing whereas in Guangzhou were the only at twenty cases one week. What's the lesson learned from the United States We're now about three weeks into this in terms of sustained community transmission. We had our first case of community transmission around the end of April so subtract a week before then. So we're getting to the point where because we're not doing adequate diagnostic testing and implementing those very important control measures. That seek pointed out. We're in a situation. Where we could risk being closer to Wuhan and Guangzhou and and we do we. We can't be there so now is a very critical period over the next couple of weeks where we have to be very aggressive about closing down major venues. We just this Houston. Today with the Rodeo was a tough decision but was the right decision that we're going to have to do this all over the country right now and the reason is this because if we miss that opportunity we then have. Our new problem becomes surge capacity hospitals. Where we're not gonNA have enough beds. We're not GONNA have enough into ventilators. We don't want to go in that direction. So now's now czar. Big Schnauzer going to be our last chance. We've already missed that in over the last few weeks. Can I reemphasize something? Peter says which is so in the entire United States. We have about eight hundred thousand hospital beds a little under eight hundred thousand hospital beds. In the entire United States we have under seventy thousand adult intensive care unit. Beds we have about sixty five thousand ventilators with the strategic supply. I've heard that it goes up slightly under one hundred thousand. That's our maximum capacity in the country at the moment if you imagine that even two percent of the population gets the corona virus and we have about six percent who are seriously. Ill GonNa need a respirator. We've exhausted all that supply. Just for those patients. Forget the heart attack patients. Forget the patients who need it for any other reason and I think what Peter said is exactly right we probably have missed two or three turns over the last few weeks where we could have gotten things down and just focusing on the hot spots. Seattle New Rochelle. I think is not. We need a much more systematic countrywide approach so that we don't overwhelm the healthcare system. Which already you know doesn't have that much search capacity in it. Dr Hotels Final Point to you for people that are watching this I. I've struggled with this for the last three weeks right. Communicating in a way that does not induce catastrophe or panic but also is clear eyed about the risks. And I do think it's worth just going back to the distinction between your individual risk you random American one of three hundred thirty million that you will get very sick and need to be hospitalized or may as life threatening illnesses that individual risk for any given random person is probably low in the grand scheme of things and this systemic risk to the society and to the healthcare system which is extremely high at this moment. Is that a fair way of phrasing. It yeah absolutely and also remember. It's it's all about communicating. What our top priorities are in. This is what I've been disappointed about. We've lost a lot of time because of a blanket statements that are not backed by data saying this is contained. This is this is the cold. This is the flu when in fact we know that there are specific groups that are at high risk including older older individuals those with underlying disabilities and our healthcare workers. And so what I've been looking for is at the White House. Press briefings to say. Look these are four. Bit Concerns Right. These are three or four populations That were concerned about This is a why we need to get on top of this very quickly. And here's what we're doing about it and and historically the American people have responded very well to this They understood this three. Bola Zeka as we say. This is not our first Rodeo so so we know how to respond and we just need that clear kind of concise messaging right now. All right. Just had one thing to Chris. Point which is we also do know the ass for any individual. The risk is low except we do know that there are certain people and Peter Emphasize of those who are over sixty or sixty five those who have chronic illness. They are at high risk and what we have done in. This country is aggregate them in nursing homes. Those are most vulnerable people people in nursing and we really have to social distance. There reduced the number of visitors. Probably two zero. Make sure that people are counting up and taking a donning protective equipment so that we don't have that Patriot play just explode with corona virus like it did in Seattle because almost every one of them is really on the verge just like the cruise ships.

Vaccines and the N-Corona Virus
"Medically the world is not the same as it was last week. A virus that started in China perhaps from an animal source has caused dozens of human deaths and infected hundreds. It is likely that more infections and deaths will follow in the weeks to come. It has already wreaked economic and social havoc in China coming during the festivities associated with the Lunar New Year families. leaser separated from each other. Entire cities are on lockdown and hospitals are simply overwhelmed. The culprit is a virus called N Corona for for Novelty Corona. We've known about this family of viruses for a long time as a common cause of colds and sore throats but things changed just in two thousand and two with these SARS corona epidemic that started again in China and caused illness in thousands and killed over. Eight hundred Dr. Peter Hotels the dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in infectious disease. Specialist and CO Director of Texas Texas Children's Center for Vaccine Development picks up the story in two thousand and twelve it arose out of Saudi Arabia. Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome. There's quota virus virus also very serious infection spread from Saudi Arabia elsewhere in the Arabian Peninsula to Korea. Viruses are often preventable with vaccines. Well unfortunately we do not have a licensed vaccine for any of the those three major corona viruses even though the technology to make it. Not that complicated. So the technical feasibility. Making these vaccines is not very difficult. It's a matter of contracting invest your support or finances to do the clinical trials. The problem is that these epidemics pass was what happened with our SARS vaccine that we were developing we developed and manufactured. We think a very promising vaccines for the SARS virus and then when SARS was gone there was no longer a lot of interest starting and continuing clinical trials which lead to licensure so the vaccine more or less sits in the freezer. The problem is that these epidemics pass and when they do. There's little appetite for investing vesting in developing vaccines with the feeling that the epidemic is now over. This isn't just unfortunate for Dr Houghton says his group. It's unfortunate for all of us because it may have helped out with this new epidemic. This new and corona virus looks like it's quite similar to the old SARS Corona Corona virus has about eighty percent similarity in terms of genetics and amino acid sequence. So we think there's a good likelihood that our SARS vaccine that we previously we developed in response to that first step attic could potentially cross protect against the current and Cronin of ours but their vaccine will require extensive sensitive testing for safety and effectiveness testing. And this could take years. Unfortunately we end up being very reactive and not so label to think ahead had Dr. Houghton and his group been able to finish their testing years ago. Things would be different today with a vaccine ready for rapid dissemination as hotels points out. These serious corona viruses. Now seem to be the new normal. We've seen one every decade in this this new century so he had SARS in the early two thousands. We have mayors in the two thousand ten in the early twenty twenty. We've got this new end corona virus. There's has every reason to believe that history will repeat itself and when it does. We need to be prepared. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion.

Debate rages in Texas over vaccination requirements
"A new global report warms of alarming surge in childhood measles cases, ninety eight countries reported a rise in cases last year, including some where measles had once been eliminated in the first two months of this year. Nearly two hundred cases have been reported in outbreaks in five states across the US mostly among children who were not vaccinated. Dr Jon lapook visited Texas where the outbreak has admitted a statewide debate in Texas, the fight over vaccination requirements isn't just a health issue. It's political state Representative Jonathan stickland a Republicans says while he is not against immunizations he opposes any legislation related to vaccine compliance. I always come down on the side of parental rights and individual liberty. What happens when parental rights brush up against the rights of children to be protected from potentially deadly childhood illnesses. The state does not own our children. Parents are the ones that are tasked with making those decisions Texas has more than fifty six thousand children with non medical exemptions for reasons of conscience a decade ago. It was ten thousand legislative efforts to eliminate the exemption failed after pressure from anti vaccine groups, the anti vaccine group have they come very very politically engaged. Republican Representative Sarah Davis says even more modest bills like improving vaccine reporting failed to advance they literally will drive in from all across the state and campaign very heavily against anyone that they think stands in the way of their I believe anti science anti vaccine agenda. What's going on? When you have these discussions with your fellow legislators. What's the objections? The says that it's just it's just a controversial though, you know, we're creating an issue. It's easier just to ignore it. What you are doing right now is throwing gas on your enemies movement.
