"The program we mentioned a startling new report from the American Academy Pediatrics and the Children's Hospital Association about the sharp recent rising coronavirus cases among children president trump was asked about the report during his briefing. Here's what he said. Give you any PAS about schools reopening for inverse? Because they may have as you would call it a case to maybe a case, but it's also a case where there's a tiny tiny fraction. Of Death tiny fraction. And They get better very quickly. John. I, think for the most part they do very well I mean they they don't get very sick. They don't catch it easily. They don't get very sick and according to the people that I've spoken to they don't. Transport it or transferring to other people or certainly not very easily. Dr Sean O'Leary is share of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Infectious Diseases. It was his organization that helped produce that report also with us is Dr Peter Hotels. Dean of the National School of Tropical. Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine is also working a potential covid nineteen vaccine Dr. Larry. Thanks for being with us to do. We know why there has been this ninety percent increase in the number of Kobe cases among kids in the US over the last week. Yeah. Good question I think it's probably a combination of factors. One remember early in the pandemic, we were really only testing people that had severe illness or were being hospitalized people in long term care facilities. So now as testing capacity is increased somewhat varies by region. More children are able to get tested. So I think that's one thing I. also think there probably is some element of more children are actually getting infected than they were before with increased activity, etc getting. Out and about more often and The other thing I would point out is that what we're seeing children is really what I it's just reflects what we're seeing in the rest of the country. When you see a lot more infections in the general population, you're GONNA see a lot more infections in children, and that's seeing a doctor who does the prison say the kids don't get very sick he's repeatedly said the kids are virtually immune and he's now saying that they're not transmitting it. They don't really have a hard time transmitting it to to adults how concerning are we talking about this with Sanjay? But I mean just factually that's just not the case. Thanks. Sorry. There was for doctors. Well, what I'll just say is I congratulate Dr Larry for putting out can meet pediatrics putting out some very important documents now. Cove in one, thousand, nine, hundred and the really important like the just congratulate Dr Larry in his team team is getting this out. Yeah. I. Think they're responsible for quite a bit of transmission in the community. We know this we heard from Sanjay this the South Korea study kids over the age of ten but we know even the little kids from a paper in Jama pediatrics they have lots of virus on their upper, Airway And their mouth and their nose, and even if they're not releasing much virus particles, they're still accounting for some transmission. And the point is Anderson. We know what happens when we open up schools in communities where the viruses either accelerating or even if it's at a plateau, but at a very high level, this is true across the south now we. Have Seen. What's happens in Georgia when we opened up schools there's lots of new cases and then the risk of courses to the older teachers those underlying conditions, hospital staff, bus drivers, and teachers will get sick and this has happened Georgia. Now, it will happen in Florida and Florida, schools open it will happen in Texas and other states we have a lot of transmission and. It will fail that'll failed catastrophically and so we still have come back to this problem over and over again where the white. House. Will not lead a containment strategy especially for the states where there's lots of transmission and what they simply won't happen we cannot open school safely. Dr O'Leary the prisoners also saying that kids don't. Get the virus as easily as as the rest of us. I understand that kids on what we do know. Sanjay. Reiterated this earlier was that you know kids may have it and be symptomatic or more likely to be a symptomatic that's known. They respond differently to the virus but the idea that do kids get it. Is, it can one say the kids it's harder for kids to become infected in the first place. Yeah I think we're I think that science is still being worked out to be. Honest. It appears perhaps from some studies that younger kids may be less likely. He mentioned the South Korea study and if you look at it, the number of children in that study. That were infected was relatively small, right? So I think the science is still being worked out. The one thing I do want to point out though is that we it's not fair to say that this virus is completely benign in children We've had ninety deaths in children in the US. Already in just a few months right every year we worry about influenza and children and there roughly around one hundred deaths in children from influenza every year but when we look at Just the short segment, the short, the small percentage overall of children that have been infected across the US. This is not we can't say that it's completely benign children. Yes. It's much less much less severe than it is in a in adults particularly older adults, but we all have to take this fire seriously including. Taking care of our children and to that point, it does it. Do. Do. We know that that kids I mean is it fully known sort of any potential long-term effects that kids may have I mean we're obviously we're all learning about this virus as we go and you know kids haven't had it as long as I. Mean, you know it's only been around for for six months so. Is it safe to say that if they get it not going to be some follow on effect down the road that we don't know about. Well I mean I think as you pointed out we're all learning about this virus every day, and we were already surprised by this multi Inflammatory Syndrome in children. Where kids get very, very sick. And that seems to happen to four weeks after a covert infection I think you've probably heard about the covy long hauler is the adults that have long term symptoms. We don't really know if that's the case in children there have been some anecdotal reports of children that have lingering symptoms but I think there's still a lot to workout in that arena. Dr Sean O'Leary Peter Hotels, thank you so much. Appreciate it. sobering milestone was reached. The global case of coronavirus is now reached twenty million globally according to Johns Hopkins University twenty million cases worldwide without his backdrop president trump also weighing in a reports of the. College football season could be cancelled. He said on twitter college should play even news outlets including.

"And answers for parents, grandparents and children also Dr Peter Hotels Dean in the National School of Tropical Medicine Houston's Baylor College of medicine professor has not been you know. Dr Pouch worked very closely with him HIV AIDS when he tells financial, times he last saw the president June second hasn't personally briefed him at least two months. What does that signal to you about? What is going on and where things are headed? It's not a good sign the. Chief Infectious Disease Officer for the United. States who really understands this disease is Dr Fauci Docu Redfield also, they are extremely well versed in what to do, and it's like flying blind is turning off your radar in the middle of a storm. If you're not talking to those people, they are the people you need to guide you through this storm. D D. Do you read that the CDC? which is you know appre? The preeminent traditionally has been de Preeminent. Scientific Organization around the world people turn to. Has it been severely weakened under this administration, because it does seem like there have been a number of instances, just the most recent one just yesterday two days ago when the president said the guidelines on schools by the CDC your to tough, inexpensive and Vice President Penn, said you know there're too tough. They're going to get new ones next week and there's going to be something coming out next week. The CDC is the organization that we Americans Trust to give US policy guides on how to behave and what rules to follow for country for cities and states reopening and for sending our kids back to school, our most precious possessions, our children's and it is absolutely critical that we listen to the best advice. They are the best in the world. They are still the best of the world, but it doesn't help if no one listens or if they change the rules for whatever purpose it's a very dangerous situation for individuals and for our children. Dr Autism every day that goes by without a national plan without leadership on the federal level. I mean the fact that the now PP's back in the headlines about questions about how much PP's available. Doctoral does that. Make any sense given how far we are into this pandemic. Anderson if this continues at this rate. We are headed toward something, unprecedented and catastrophic Let's look what the country is GonNa look like. Say Six weeks from now. Say by September one. If we continue along this trajectory, we will easily exceed one hundred thousand cases per day new cases a day. Dr Faustus, cheese, apocalyptic prediction. The we have hospitals overwhelmed Not only in terms of issue beds in hospitals and how beds, but exhausted hospital, staff and and hospital staff. That's getting ill themselves, so we won't have enough. Manpower Human Power to manage all of this. The consequence of that is that's what we see. Mortality rates going up That's what we saw in Italy. That's what we saw in the early stages epidemic in York so we already have the deaths now starting to increase. They said there were no deaths now. We knew there was a lag now. The desks are starting to increase. It will accelerate as hospitalized US become over well. We will have students in schools where the teachers now are getting sick and the and. And the school staff will start to abandon the school. So what we're looking at is what I think is going to be one of the most unstable times in the history of our country and less. We figure out a way to do something unless we implement a federal plan and we still can do this, but we need a president. Engage you need. A White House engaged so professor housing, just assuming okay taking that as potential future, assuming the president is not GonNa Shift Strategies, which there's no sign he is. Let's talk about what. The rest of us can do and other governors and congress others what what can be done to not have have one hundred thousand per day. Let me first of all. Reinforce what Peter said. All people who study these viruses think that the summer is the quiet time. I want you to think about that. This is the quiet time for Corona viruses. That's what you were hearing. That's what we believe. If this is the quiet time I hate to think what winter is going to be like this year. That's the first thing to say. Second thing to say is. It feels a little bit like you're on a ship. Where the captain has said, we're sinking every man for himself well, if it's every man for himself, we better pay attention and do what we can to help ourselves. We have to make sure we wear masks like everybody says we have to social distance if If, we can. We have to be aware of our environment. What is the infection rate in our media environment? So we know how much risk taking when we go out all of these things are left to individuals, which is a very sad state of affairs. We need the government right now. Descend the needed people and equipment and supplies to our southern and our western states. We need our government to start a education bail program to help our schools prepare. We are not prepared to the federal level and the local level can't afford that changes that are needed. Dr Hotels WH. What do you see as as a as a path forward? Well the path forward is there's choice. We have to have a federal plan of roadmap. We know the states cannot do this. In the lead and we've seen what happens. It just doesn't work, and so now we have to look around if of WHO's going to step up to take control of our Cova response. If the White House will do it, we WANNA look to the CDC. The CDC seems to have trouble with taking leadership they. Want the state's lead with with CDC advising. Maybe they can turn it around. That would be the best thing that could happen. If not I think we're going to have to look at what are the levers? Can Congress take control and mandate that? Won't do it. You know we have other options. We have the US military of Walter. We have the energy labs. We have the contractors, but someone's going to have to step up. There's no other way around. Dr Peter Hotels Professor William. Heseltine has always thank you so I really do appreciate it of next the breaking news on Roger Stone the president's longtime friend former political adviser just days before he was scheduled to report to prison now Freeman says the White House. The president commuted his sentence reaction when we continue..

"US now. What are officials saying about? Those increasing infections in Los Angeles County are. So in Los Angeles, county, what they said, today is what they're seeing. Terms of the rise in cases and infections and hospitalizations, really crediting that rise in hospitalizations community spread there's also been a slight uptick in deaths and the health director today said, listen I want to warn you. We are going to see more depth. Similar loved ones among our neighbors, because as we know, Anderson is the deaths as an indicator that lag here two three four, even five weeks. Sometimes that number will lag behind the rise in cases and hospitalizations. Erica Hill Erica, thanks perspective now from two leading public health experts close to home director of the Center for Infectious Disease, research and policy the University of Minnesota and someone. You just heard from an Erica's report. Dr Peter Hotels Dean in the National School of Tropical. Medicine Houston's Baylor College of Medicine. Professor, Oestroem a million new infections just under month. USA's now more than three million cases. What do you expect will happen in the coming weeks? Well the numbers only going to continue to rise of many of these cases already in the pipeline you know just as we sat here a month ago and talked about twenty thousand cases and forty thousand seemed like it could never happen, and suddenly now we're talking sixty thousand as we also talked about one hundred thousand cases a day are not out of the question This is just going to continue to to spread as it is right now. And? And so, how does it start to go down, I mean. Is it I mean. Is there something to pin some hope on. Well. I think the one thing we have to acknowledge that we have to go back and no one wants to use the word lockdown day. They were very cautious about talking about what we needed to do. At the Task Force press briefing, but the bottom line is. We're going to have to really clamp back down again. The countries that have successfully contained this virus were able to get it down to A. A level of one to two cases per one hundred thousand population, then testing and contact tracing will work in a situation like this. When the entire forest is on fire, all the testing and contact tracing on the world isn't going to shut it down is going to have to take a lot of distancing issues, and we're back to square zero in a sense where we were in marked from any of these locations. Doctor who does vice president said today that there are early indications that positivie rates are flattening. Isn't that misleading flattening at all? They're doing so in very high numbers right. Disconnect Anderson between the charts that Deborah Brooks showed, and and the statements that were made what the chart show at a pretty steep acceleration in the major metropolitan areas of Arizona Texas Florida across the south, and that really hasn't changed, and the numbers continue to accelerate in our hospitals in our issues, and we remained in terrible public health crisis and I completely agree with Mike The numb. There is no end to this increase unless we do the hard work to start bringing. Bringing this back and really trying to create a national plant, let state by state by state and bring this down to some level of containment other because the contact tracing is not gonNA work, and we're not going to be able to open up school safely and areas. We've got this kind of acceleration. We're supposed to open up schools in Houston towards the end of August I. Don't see how you do that. As students get sick and teacher, start to get sick. I do you still believe? I mean that come November, December January, that has seasonal flu comes around. There's going to be another sort of wave on wave is the right word. Of Cova. Think Kobe is not going to slow down unless we make every effort to make it slowdown, remember. We're in a debate with a virus. That doesn't really what are messages. It's going to do what it's going to do and I think that we have to understand that the best we can do is the kind of distancing mitigation strategies. We've talked about to get like other countries influenza. We're not sure what it will do this fall. In some cases, there may be interference between the two viruses, and we have less activity. There could be more. I think the bottom line message is keep thinking about the covid situation from the standpoint that right. Right now, probably about seven percent of the US. Population's been infected with this virus to date. It is not going to slow down transmission till it gets to fifty or sixty percent that I said slow down I didn't say stop and so when you think about the number of people still have yet to be infected. We'll get infected to get to that. Fifty to sixty percent rate. We are still in the beginning of this pandemic, and that's what we have to help the public our leaders understand we have to be in this for the long haul, and that means shutting down now will pay big dividends before hopefully we get a vaccine. At first of all some two hundred thirty nine cents, or so from around the world, published a letter, asking the WHO to be more clear and explaining how coronavirus can transmit in the air, the organization confirmed there is emerging evidence. The was their term of airborne transmission. Kiessling would that means for our lives every day? Yeah well first of all when we talk about respiratory transmitted viruses. We're talking about what comes out of our breathing tractor. We caught, and there are very small particles. If I could like them. The size of marbles, there are particles assize size of bowling balls, and there's everything in between, and what the W. H. O. said is basically just those big particles. Fall out close by you, and that's where you have to be. And in fact, these particles we call aerosol so things that float in the air the next time you're in your home and you see the sunlight peering in the. The window and you see all that dust floating near anything all my dusty house. That's an aerosol when I talk sitting here in the studio right now. I'm still in the studio with these aerosols. You can't see him, but they're they're. They have virus. As this group is saying to the W. H. O.. You have to understand that aerosols themselves can transmit this virus. They can float in the air for some time, and it's not just those that you cough or sneeze out that are going to continue to spread this disease and the date I think are compelling to support their message. Dr Hotels. Essentially that means you know whoever has used this studio that I'm in right now if they used it, you know an hour ago and I and they've laughed and I. Walk into this it. There could still be aerosol particles in the air. That's right unless you have a mascot, and that's why we encourage. People were masks. This virus replicates in high amounts in our upper airway, and that's one of the distinguishing features of this virus, so as you're speaking, releasing huge numbers of virus particles, and that's why the masks Oh can work so well. Look I mean. We can make a big difference in this country. If we're willing to do the hard work now it's still not too late. If we implement a very aggressive strategy over the summer, when things are relatively quiet, we can make a big impact start to open up school safely. start open up colleges and universities safely, maybe even have. The national football. League college football in the NBA. If we do the hard work this summer, the problem is there's no leadership that's willing to take that on and to create strategies for every state to tell the states. This is what you need to do. For your particular state in some states, they're already there. They don't have to do that. Much. Other states like Texas and Florida and Arizona have a lot of work to do better is doable. If there's the political will and leadership, and that's what's so tragic. We could have an extraordinary all this in the United States in two thousand twenty. If people were willing to let that happen, yeah, I also just last night. I. You know when when when you have spoken over the course of this. This spring you often said. We're in the second inning of a nine inning game. Are we still? What inning are we in now? Well, we're definitely in the third or fourth What got me from second to third or fourth? Was We worship? This was going to act like an influenza pandemic. Where are truly really waves just like you'd see in the ocean where you have a block of first cases that occur, and then for reasons that have nothing to do with human mitigation or anything? Anything we try to do. They just tend to fall off and go through a period of of very low activity for several months, and then you see a big second wave. We now realize this is not like an influenza virus is the corona virus by itself the first time. We're aware that this has happened. And this is just one heavy. Burn as I describe..

"That we're seeing in the south in the West having problems, being big enough problems that they are going to become national problems I'm also just worried about Texans and all of these different people in all of these different cities having so much trouble. Can you put it in perspective in terms of where Texas has been? And how bad things are now? Yeah absolutely Rachel. We hit seven thousand cases today, which are all time high to give you a sense of what that number means. Today Dr Chee, addicted this apocalyptic number of one hundred thousand cases a day in the United States. If you were to extrapolate that for the population of Texas a thirty million, that would be ten thousand cases per day where at. At seven thousand, so we are already here in Texas, reaching that level equivalent to the worst case scenario for Dr. vouching it's not just in Texas. It's happening in Arizona. It's happening in the metropolitan areas all across the southwestern part of the United States. The other really important piece to talk about that. Really not many people are mentioning is I think it's the. Come neighbor especially. They're being very hit very hard where it's harder to do social distancing where there's higher rates of underlying co morbidity is I, think this a lot of the people also piling into the hospital. So in that sense, we're failing to protect our most vulnerable people. Across the major metro areas and in the American South West La Phoenix Houston Austin. Dallas San Antonio and on that basis I'm calling this a humanitarian catastrophe unless we intervene very soon because the numbers continue to rise very aggressively, these are. Curved point. What kind of intervention do you think would be most important and most effective we have seen Texas start to reimpose some restrictions within the state rolling back reopenings putting in place, a mask ordinances finally once again. Encouraging people to stay at home. Are Those the right interventions? Are there more? Are there things to speak from public health perspective that you think would be more effective to urgently? Well. These are all important developments, and we're in a much better position now this week than we were last week. I still don't know if those are going to be enough. One of the things we haven't gotten help from the federal government is any type of epidemiologic modeling exercise to actually look at what these interventions will do. What will the impact of those specific interventions beach short of? Of total locked on, will that level the curve? Will that bring it down? We have access to that information. The CDC can help design a strategy for us, and this is the other very odd piece to this. There is no national strategy. Our National Roadmap which you've got, are the individual states trying to figure the side as best they can. They're certainly getting some FEMA help and. Help but no overarching strategy, no roadmap, no no overview in terms of how they should proceed, and this is the other. Place for the Federal Government has let us down quite a bit. We don't have that good roadmap to follow unfortunately. Dr Peter Hotels Dean National School. Tropical Medicine and Baylor College of Medicine Co Director of the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development sounding the alarm for quite some time about things getting bad in Houston bad and Texas and keeping the focus on those low income neighborhoods that have been the worst hit Dr Hotels.

This will be with us for a while. Now I know that's true. Thank you Sir all right. We've got much more to get to tonight. Including the other huge story about this presidency right now, a story that keeps getting worse than more reporting that we get families of American soldiers who've been killed in Afghanistan within the past year are now demanding answers about what the president knew about bounties, allegedly being paid by the Russian government to the Taliban to kill American troops. The family members of American troops who have been killed since the Russians have been doing that now want to know what the president did with that information after he was briefed on it that story and more next.

"TRINITE UP European countries about a month before we did remember all the stories about it, or how terrible things were in Italy well, we are now Italy. Became back down. Because a strong coordinated national measures, they were forced to stay home. It was hard. It was devastating economically, but it worked just like a worked in other places, but not here because we didn't have strong coordinated national measures and we didn't stick with it. South Korea never even had a big bump same virus they had their act together on a national level and testing and tracing took it seriously. That was back when cases were low enough to get a handle on the US is the Green Line, which plateaued and his now rising sharply. That is what failure looks like, and that's where we are. Here's how the spokesperson who speaks for. The president characterized the outbreak in mass query. Were aware that there embers that need to be put out but these signs of decreasing fatality. Increase in enhanced therapeutics that we've identified four of them decks, method, zone, convalescent, plasma, and severe one other that they are working. In Particular Reduces Hospital time by third I'm so these things make us uniquely equipped to handle the increase in cases that we've seen the CDC guidelines. Are there recommended, but not required and we've. The president would encourage everyone to follow the orders of their local jurisdiction in CDC guidelines. Embers. She calls them. I'll say it again. Thirty one states are seeing rising cases. Those aren't embers. If that's an umbrella I, WanNa see what Ms. mcenaney calls an actual inferno because that's according to health officials is what this is. As we know now nearly every night, the president is done with it. Never mind would his own experts say never mind what state and local officials are now saying and doing? How many times do you actually hear? The president is macaroni, said urging people to wear masks if they're local officials say. Never mind that just yesterday Alex as are his own health. Secretary of Health and Human Services said quote. The window is closing unquote when it comes to stopping this surge. He might have said the same four months ago when the window really was closing, but the president has now was too busy, saying other things. When you have fifteen people, and the fifteen within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero. That's a pretty good job we've done. Now is our says the window is closing. He said nothing then perspective now from CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr Sanjay Gupta also Dr Peter Hotels Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston Sunjay the debt. The principal deputy director of CDC said today that she thinks that people engage in wishful thinking that they thought summer would come, and everything would be fine, which is obviously what the president said would happen It's just stunning to me when you see that graph of where the European countries of the European Union are, and where we are, and we're on the same trajectory, we were on the same path, and they got it right, and we didn't. I mean it's just about of leadership. No doubt I mean because you do see that we are all humans, viruses, the same in terms of how it behaves in humans around the world and those those lines do tell a story tomorrow Anderson. We'll be six months. The World Health Organization I heard about this mysterious pneumonia cluster out of China six months, and during that time we have that ten million people around the world who have become infected, five hundred thousand people who have died and. And as you know, a quarter of those numbers are here in the United States the concern, obviously Anderson is as bad as those numbers are. When you start to see what's happening in some of these states around the country, and I've talked to some of the officials on the ground today in these various places, there's a real concern that the numbers will increase I think that that's that's significant. Because this is like a it starts to gain momentum and then. Then and then it's no longer growing linearly. It starts to grow into exponential growth, but the bigger concern and you mentioned Italy is why was the fatality rate so high in Italy at near the beginning of their their epidemic impart was because of the incredible strain on the hospital system right? There were people who couldn't get into care. There are people who die preventable deaths, or as you know. The Doctors Without Borders called stupid debts. That's their absolutely unnecessary and. And preventable. That's a real concern and peters here. He's in Houston. Houston's is obviously on the cusp of something like that where people may not be able to get care I mean they could be saying my loved. One is having shortness of breath. They need to go to the hospital and they may be told. Hey, look keep them at home as long as possible. We're not sure we got room right now. That is not the position. We WanNA be in. Dr Hostess. I've heard you say that states are implementing what you call operation cake and eat it relaxing marie-antoinette. Let them eat cake. Where can you explain what you mean by that? Well what I mean is we are seeing this incredibly scary rise in the number of cases, exponential growth in the the large metropolitan areas of the southwestern part of the United States, so Phoenix Dramatic Rise Austin. San Antonio Dallas Houston, and the then there seems to be no end in sight, with those projections so potentially in Houston we could go from one thousand cases of data four thousand cases a day..

So, if these six thousand people who attended the trump rally follow medical professionals, advice and try to get tested many of them.

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..

"Transmission of the virus in order to stop a run on our hospitals to protect vulnerable populations in our missed. That's older people. People with serious. Chronicle medical conditions like heart disease lung disease and diabetes. We all have people in our lives that are vulnerable to this. The clear steps to take are canceling. Large-scale events and reducing travel reducing. Going out even going to restaurants or events. We need to take this all deadly seriously. You can go read the warnings from Italians who said we did not take the seriously enough and now we're in it. That's their message to us. That message however is not being adequately communicated at all by the most powerful person in the country. Someone Louise hearing from later tonight. A man who insists on propagating disinformation and meeting with CEOS to discuss an economic problem. But the right message is being communicated by people administration like Dr Falcon by former trump administration officials like Tombo sir and former. Fdic achieved Scott Gottlieb but governors like Washington's Jay Inslee who today announced they are shutting down events over two hundred and fifty people. The reality is we have to take dramatic steps and we are only now at this late hour starting to see those steps and action for more on where we stand right now. 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.

"Today. We are joined by Dr Peter hotels dean of the national school of Tropical Medicine at Baylor, College of medicine in Houston, and co director of the Texas children's hospital center for vaccine development that I get that, right. You got a perfectly, wonderful doctor hotels. Thank you so much for taking the time to chat with us today. It's so it's so great to hear from you because we have been huge fans since our epidemiology grad school days like this is where, you know, this is definitely celebrity moment for us. Oh my gosh. Big to. But thank you really today we wanted to chat with you about vaccines, in particular, the misinformation and fear surrounding childhood vaccines. And to go through some common questions about vaccines in the misconceptions that the anti vaccine movement holds onto an promotes, but let's start with you. Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your professional experience with vaccine development and research, and how you became interested in this field? Sure, will. Thanks for having me. Thanks for the question. So I may vaccine scientists, sometimes called the vaccination largest and I co lead a group that's developing vaccines to prevent or treat poverty related neglected. Diseases group of conditions. We call the neglected tropical diseases or NTD's, and I've been doing this, my whole professional life since I was in graduate school since I was an. MD. PA. HD student at Rockefeller University in New York. So I have a lifelong passion to develop the vaccines that nobody else will make. Because their for their targeting the diseases of the world's poorest people, and there's no financial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. So one of the interesting things that we do is not only the science of how develop vaccines, but trying to figure out sustainable business models because no one's done this before. And so that's my major, that's my major research activity. So it's an interesting one in that it's a hybrid between the academic culture. So we write papers grants like other academic scientists, but we're also trying to develop stuff, we're trying to make a product. So we're a hybrid between a biotech culture internet condemning culture, which sometimes works and sometimes there, there are kinks to work out, but it's been a very exciting. Thirty year ride developing these vaccines. We now have we now evac scenes to combat hookworm and just to Samaya SIS and moving into phase, two clinical trials and we have a new show Gus disease vaccines going into phase one and hopefully leash Mnaya sus vaccine to follow. So we target the what we like to call the most common diseases. You've never heard of amazing. We actually mentioned your hookworm vaccine in our recent hookworm episode. And I studied, Chagas for my PHD. So that's really thrilling that there's a shock effect seen in works. I didn't realize that how did you become interested in in vaccines? What so in terms of neglected tropical diseases, which is a phrase I believe you coined or at least help to promote and, you know, this is as its name suggest is a neglected area. So what kind of spurred your interest in that particular field? Well, it was actually a have. Lifelong passion for studying tropical diseases and parasites. So I was a nerdy kid grew up in west Hartford, Connecticut, and at a microscope and my own lab in the basement. And you know, you grew up in Hartford, Connecticut either wanna pitch for the Yankees and the Red Sox, and I wanted to study tropic diseases. So it's been a lifelong. I'm living out my boyhood fantasies, the, the vaccine component, I think is a certain humanitarian Dr that I began in medical school in graduate school and have continued ever since. So my whole life of want that to be a laboratory investigator, the, the one piece that I did not really think I'd be doing either earlier in life for the stage in life is all the public engagement to get people to care about poverty related neglected diseases and getting people to care about diseases of the. Four and the elected tropical diseases, and now this latest craziness about vaccines, and the anti vaccine movement. So moving moving into that area in, in your book called vaccines did not cause Rachel's autism, which was published last year. You talk about your personal experience as vaccine developer,.
