"What do you remember about the confirmation process today and what elements or aspects of that entire process. Surprised you well you know. The process was interesting. It was Challenging i think it is for everyone to go through. The confirmation process I i think that it was particularly challenging. Because i'm an openly transgendered transgender women. When i remember most about the process is my gratitude to those at health and human services in the administration that worked to prepare me. Do you recall any moments in which you thought to yourself. Oh my god. I'm trying to make history here now. I was really trying to be very mindful in the moment. That's the best way to deal with with experiences like that so It didn't really hit me about a about the history-making part of it. I was just in the moment. You know answering the senator's questions and and being open and truthful and and working through that process replete tell me afterwards. You celebrated like blunt somewhere or something right. Well you know. There's a copay nineteen pandemic. So i went home and and with my partner my family and we had a very nice dinner Girl we got to celebrate with you. That's not the way we make history in our community. We gotta make sure. There's some confetti and some glitter right johnson. Today you mentioned earlier about the work that you did witnessing and obviously tending to people dealing with hiv aids during the early days of the crisis in new york The cdc recently released a study a report dealing with hiv aids With a lot of encouraging news of one particular does sort of raise my eyebrow and that was twenty. Three percent of the people who are eligible for prep are currently prescribed. Prep that means about seven. Percents are not what can be done to close that gap so very important point. You know i in the eighties. When i was taking care of patients who all passed away they all dot. If you had told me that we have a medicine that you could take once a day that if you were at risk would prevent hiv. If you had medicines that people with hiv take every day and that would keep them their viral load down and we keep them undetectable And and duly calls you and they would be a not able to transmit the disease dan I'm transmittable than i would have thought that those were a medical miracle and we have all of those things but we still have issues in terms of health equity. We have to reach communities that we are not reaching with these with with these medications with these protocols and so that is why health equity is such a critical part of of of my priorities at as the assistant secretary for health. And i know. It's one of the secretaries priorities. And the president's priorities we're going to be working across the administration and the department on health equity in particular regards to hiv to make sure that people have access to these These extremely powerful and and important medications the work you're doing and it's so fantastic to hear the work you're doing particularly when it comes to.

"Start here wherever you listen if i am fortunate. Enough to be confirmed as the assistant secretary of health. I look forward to working with you. There were moments doing dr. rachel levine. Confirmation hearing they're very difficult to watch. Particularly the line of questioning. Coming from senator rand paul who did not ask dot singer question about the pandemic but instead used his time to focus on the genitalia of children's. Let's be a little more specific since you've aided. The question do support the government intervening to override the parents consent to give a child. Puberty blockers cross sex hormones and or amputation. Surgery abreast genitalia. I would imagine for someone who began her career in pediatrics. For someone who was pediatrics professor at penn state university for someone with children of her own the very idea that data levin will seek to put a child in harm's way is nonsensical that best prejudicial at worst but then again trying to break a glass ceiling they're always be people lining up to protect it for no other reason than to score political points and in today's political environment using a confirmation hearing to score points with the base is common practice no matter how dehumanizing the line of questioning is no matter how old entire the attacks our case in point save our children was to i organize push back against the tq equality and as you can tell from his name. The goal was to scare straight people to thinking gays and lesbians. We're going to kids. That was nineteen seventy seven. Here we are in twenty twenty one and it's the same scare tactic. Only this time. The target is transgender. Americans but in becoming the first openly transgender person to be confirmed by the senate doctor levin did more than just make history.

"It's that the body just does not like to make inadequate immune response against hiv. Just doesn't and that's one of the perplexing aspects of hiv it integrates itself into the genome of the sells so quickly becomes very difficult to rid the body of it and one of the tenets vaccine. -nology is that in order to get a successful vaccine. You've got to have a disease in which the body actually makes a good immune response so when you get diseases like measles like polio Even though those are diseases that caused a considerable degree of mobility mortality at the end of the day. Most people recover from those diseases because the immune system is capable of suppressing ultimately. Ridding the body of whatever pathogen. You're dealing with the smallpox measles or polio. And then the body then has an immune response that stays with you that protects you against infection from the same pathogen so the body is giving you approve of proof of concept that it is capable of making a good immune response and that's the reason why we have successful vaccines against measles against smallpox polio. And now against covid nineteen. That's just not the case with hiv. Because for reasons that are still a bit perplexing. The body does not make a good response against hiv. So in order to get a vaccine. Which i think and i'm always cautiously optimistic that we will ultimately get a vaccine for hiv. We've got to do better than natural infection. When last i checked black people made forty two percent of the country's new hiv cases in two thousand eighteen alone. That black men are less likely to get care. Black women are about fourteen times more likely to be diagnosed with hiv than their white counterparts. So my question to you is when you hear those numbers. Does it feel like it's a crisis situation for you for the black when it comes to hiv. I'm talkin about that for a very long time. In fact i talk about the extraordinary disparities in health with not on the hiv but also with cope in nineteen. You're absolutely right. The numbers of very very disturbing in a thirteen percent of the population is african american. Forty four percent of the new infections are among african americans and of those sixty five percent or among men who have sex with men who are african american and of those seventy five percent are young african american men who have sex with men so there's a considerable disparity there you know. The reasons for that are multifaceted. Really it has a lot to do. I think with the stigma that still 'associated with hiv and being gay among african americans because if you look at the charts of the country and the counties will you will you see a considerable amount of residual infection even today after all of the things we have which prep and treatment as prevention the accessibility of something as effective as pre exposure prophylaxis seemingly one pill trodden every single day. That's not as accessible to african american men as to other members of the population so it is another example of the unfortunate and disturbing disparities in health in access to health access to medications access to health. Care and the stigma and discrimination against men who have sex with men particularly african american men who have sex with. Do you believe the biden administration is aware of this dynamic and is prepared to do something to address it..

The program starts at 4 30 here on KQED. This is marketplace. I'm kind result. If you have been out in the world of late, you've surely seen all those plastic dividers separating you from other people or other people from your ideas. Like those pictures of people wearing masks, or those six FT markers on the floor of a grocery store. Those places glass barriers have become a clear symbol of this pandemic economy and as such, they are a business opportunity as well. Michael Spur, is the co owner of California Acrylic Design. It is a real small business here in l. A doing those barriers and other stuff, Michael. Welcome to the program like I glad to be here. So back in the before time say, like, last February, Uh, what kind of stuff were you making? Well, we've always made a lot of furniture, art framing industrial covers to cover machines. Display cases. And, of course we we sell a lot of acrylic. That's just cut the size. And then the bottom falls out in in March ish and what happens to your order book? Well it No, we get the stay at home order. We didn't even know if we were allowed to be open after that, So you know, we cut our productions. Three days a week. But wow, within 10 days, the barrage of emails the phone's ringing people needed those screens for counters and desks. Yeah, I imagine there was some desperation. There was, of course, they were always in a hurry. And we have four employees up to five at the most. And then we're just cranking it out as fast as we could do. I have it right that you've got A contract from the T s a out of l A X. I mean, those that's not a small customer. No, it's not. It makes you wonder how they found us. But they're the agents sit behind these podiums and they needed to be covered at the front and two sides of the podium and we ended up making something along the order of G 140 of those things plus covering their break room tables. So that was that was one of the biggest sales we've ever had, I'd say. Kind of funny that this giant government bureaucracy found little low. Y'all, you know? Well, I think we've done a pretty good job of staying on top of our Internet in terms of it being an easy find. Look at that's smart. That's smart. As you sort of got going. Did you have a decent supply chain? Were you able to get the stuff you needed to make what your customers wanted. There was a shortage and it reared its head by the end of April. You would just be hearing from your distributors that there's a weight on that. And of course, the first thing to get knocked out is thesixties oversight sheets. Six ft by eight ft sheets. Yeah, of course. Um, And how long did it last? Where where people were in this panic mode. I mean, you you walk into any place now, and they've all got those sneeze. Guards right, So has demand falling off. Well, it was sky high through perhaps September. Then it did slow down for you know all the way through February. We're starting to see that demand go up again, like dramatically just in the last two weeks as California is gearing up for full reopening. Hmm. You know, honest. Honestly, If you have this conversation with me three weeks ago, I would have said I don't know is this is never coming back. Wow. That's that's a little terrifying it is. You know, we didn't bother with the P P P loan the first time because we were so busy and I guess we figured well that that's for bowling alleys and restaurants and places literally taking a hit, But we had to go for the second time immediately. There was a big slow down to slow down like we hadn't seen for so many consecutive months. Michael Spur. He is one of the co owners of a company right here in Los Angeles.

Can't be spending money on like a wall to stop people from coming across the border illegally. Stop that right now. Now that had not been trump's top priority. Would he be doing that. Of course not. He's going to quote end. The muslim travel ban. There is no muslim travel ban. It does not exist. There's a travel ban against a variety of countries which includes some muslim countries and some non muslim countries. Okay he's going to rejoin the paris. Climate agreement woohoo that paris climate agreement which achieves nothing zero things does achieve. It is a completely symbolic act. That is designed in order to cudgel political opponents into silence. That is what the paris climate accord does the vast majority of countries that have signed on the paris. Climate accord are not even attempting to meet their quotas. The united states has no plan in order to achieve. What joe biden wants it to achieve an even if the united states were to meet its quotas. Under the paris climate accord's it would not lower the global temperature over the course of the next century. More than a minute degree. These are all well established realities.

One of the things that trump had pushed was we're not gonna count illegal immigrants in the us census because we use the us census for apportionment purposes and we should not apportion congressional seats based on how many people who literally should not be in the country are in particular areas and buy up. You know what i know. All those people live and they tend to live in blue areas and we need more. Congressional seats appointed a portion for those particular areas or rejoining the.

I remember when i was in elementary school. And if you basically didn't kill over in fourth grade then. They gave you like a presidential physical fitness award.

He's going to push pause on student. Loan payments until september thirtieth his going to defend the dreamers program for undocumented young americans. He's going to continue to do the unconstitutional thing of just declining to prosecute people as he ought under the law.

But just explain how and here we go. This is the best part you ready. Actions to advance racial equity through the federal government. So welcome back to critical race theory gang because remember trump said no critical race theory in the federal government. We're not gonna do any of those things and by. We're putting all that back in so you get to learn about how whiteness dominates america's systems of power and how you are responsible you are white person and it doesn't matter if you're black person who agreed in any element with trump. This means that you're also white. You're multi racial white person. Very exciting stuff. He's going to revoke. Trump's corn harmful seventeen seventy six commission. So instead he's just gonna reflect these sixteen nineteen bullcrap promoted by the new york times. America's evil america's terrible all. This is in the healing guys. Do you feel the healing. Can you feel the warmth. Can you feel it so much healing happening. Right now. he's going to strengthen workplace discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity which effectively means that the federal government is now going to be telling you that if you are a waiter at a if you are a waitress at and you decide that you're man tomorrow you should remain a waitress at the hooters. So that's that's exciting stuff also when we are going to be freezing all last minute. Trump administration and regulatory actions and they're gonna formulate executive branch ethics doctrines because that's always Usually went when members of the government including the trump administration formulate ethics doctrines. They then follow through with done by completely ignoring them. So all of this is exciting stuff among the people who biden will be appointing also some of the best and the brightest so for example. Joe biden has now selected as assistant health secretary. Rachel levine the only important thing about this human beings that this person is transgender. That's according to the washington post headline. This is true. Here's the washington post headline now. You might think to yourself as assistant health secretary. Wouldn't you want like the accomplishment in the title like what this person due to become assistant health secretary. Here's the title biden. Select transgender dr. Rachel levine as assistant health secretary. Well i mean. I know that when i go to the doctor. The first thing i need is a person who believes that. Remember the wrong sex..

"So joe biden's reported nominee for this very important post in the doj holds a ton of extremely racist ugly views similar us being held. Apparently by joe biden's choice for deputy educa- education secretary so joe biden announced that he wanted to pick The san diego unified school district. Superintendent cindy martin for deputy secretary of education deputy secretary of education. What what does the education department even do. I guess not all they don't. They're not empowered to do all that much by law or there's obviously doesn't appear anywhere in the constitution but they do have quite a lot of power to craft the direction of curriculum the united states. One way they do. This is through things like dear colleague. Letters look basically strong recommendations from the federal government that you know if you wanna keep getting your money if you wanna keep getting all these goodies from the federal government. You have to do what we want you to do. On various sort of social engineering policies of the famous dear colleague letter from the obama administration had to do with transgender ideology will hear this person who biden wants for deputy education secretary l. holds very racist views. She's a white lady but she holds these very sort of What do you call it. i guess black racialist views the same kinds of things that we have just been talking about so she believes that schools quote spirit murder black children and wh- white teachers should should undergo quote anti-racist therapy anti-racist therapy so you've got now the announced biden pick for deputy education secretary calling for the reprogramming only of white teachers who are not anti-racist enough meaning a they could be not racist but that's not enough you've got to be antiracist meaning you've got to be racist and the teachers are are not Focused enough on how terrible the scourge of white supremacy as an schools quote spirit murder black children river that means and so they've got to go to reeducation camps that's not even just being reported that has been announced moving over to the department of health and human services. I've got to be very careful with this one. Because i think we could all be censored for this and there were major calls right now for conservatives to be censored so i'm just going to present the facts. Okay and you tell me something. Seems a little strange. Joe biden has selected the pennsylvania health secretary. Dr rachel levine. To be assistant secretary of health and human services. Dr rachel levine that That was not his given name when he was born. A dr. rachel. Levine is a man who thinks that he's a woman He's being nominated to be the assistant secretary of health and human services a man who is under the impression that he is a woman in some deep metaphysical way that his true identity is a woman even though all of the characteristics that he has our man manly masculine He is now to be the assistant secretary of health and human services. Does that seem a little strange to you. That seems a little strange to me. I know i don't want to step out of line. I don't want to Seems a little strange doesn't it but it doesn't but it doesn't. It only seems strange to people with even a modicum of common sense left because we are back into the normal scope of this liberal political regime and the normal kinds of politics that we see here. That's normal compared to objective standards. That's not normal compared to historical norms back decades and decades but it is normal today and what is also about to be normal. I mean i've. I'm joking a little bit as i'm tiptoeing around this issue. What strange about this that. A man and address who believes himself to be a woman is assistant health secretary. I'm sort of joking. I tiptoe around it but there's a lot of truth to it. Which is that. We are now at a place. Where if you come out and say a man is not a woman and a woman is not a man and a man can't magically become a woman by wishing it so and putting address on you will face professional consequences for it. You will face social consequences for it. You can currently be kicked off of social media. If you do it in a specific way which i hope my elaborate choreography here has allowed me to walk around but you you cannot say that you feel as though you're the last sane person on earth when you scream to the wind and say a man is not a woman and a woman is not a man and there's actually such a thing as sexual difference but that that's over because now we're headed back into the biden administration. Which is it's the same thing as the obama administration which is just kind of the same thing as the establishment left by the way what you're going to hear specifically with regard to rachel levine's appointment you're going to hear that. Oh no this has nothing to do with him being a transgender person. This is just because he's so qualified and he's just the best pick for the job. I don't think that that is likely to be true. Here's why there is a quote from robin gonzalez. The victory institute which i suppose. Lgbtq sort of lobby says quote. I think there is a value and giving visibility to doctors like doctor levin who are kind of unique in their field. Not just because of their demographics and who they are but also because of their expertise. We also know that when people know. Lgbtq people it makes them more open to supporting our equality so he. He made three arguments here. He made three three reasons as to. Why rachel levine. Should get this job. It's good to give visibility to doctors like levin visibility. What does that mean means Because he's a man who thinks he's a woman not just because of their demographics but also because of their expertise. Okay so he's saying it's not just because he's transgender. It's because he.

'There's No Quick Fix For COVID-19,' Cautions Pennsylvania Secretary Of Health
"Going to talk more now about how states are preparing to distribute those vaccines as they become available, and to do that, we're joined by Dr Rachel Levine. She is the Pennsylvania health secretary and also president of the Association of State Health Officials. Dr Levine welcome 12 Things considered. Thank you very much. I'm very pleased to be here. Will you walk us through the logistics for when Pennsylvania first receives its initial shipments of vaccines? I mean, where does it go? How do you keep it cold? What do you actually have to do? Sure. So we're all waiting the meeting of the FDA on December 10th. And then they will consider all of the data of submitted by the Fizer Corporation for the first vaccine. When they issue their emergency use authorization or you away, then operation Warp speed will distribute the vaccine. To hospitals in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation just to get specific is the federal government or or fives or corporation, sending it to the state of Pennsylvania to distribute it to hospitals. I I asked, because this vaccine has to be kept incredibly cold. It's not just like you can send a bottle of aspirin, right? So you are correct. This is an ultra cold chain vaccine that has to be kept at minus 80 C or or Celsius. So it will be operation works speed that will be sending it to the hospitals that we designate now will depend, of course about how much we're going to get, and it comes in trays of 975 bottles. So these have to be hospitals that can Deal with the cold chain and can deal with that amount of vaccine to then administer. Now, the CDC recommends that health care workers and residents of long term care facilities should get first access to these vaccines. That's a large number of people have you decided whether you're going to start With older healthcare workers or people with underlying conditions are only doctors and nurses who see covert patients. I mean, how are you going to prioritize within the priority groups? Sure. So we're going to be developing a decision tree for hospitals to use and we'll be finishing that this week. I want to point out that the distribution for the nursing home and other long term kitchen facilities Goes in a different way. So operation works speed working with Walgreens and CVS will be receiving the vaccine with those two pharmaceutical companies, and then they will be working to administer the vaccine in nursing homes and other long term care facilities. Do you have a sense of how many doses The first shipment is likely to include and how that compares to the number of people in this top priority. First group, so we don't exactly know how many doses we're going to get in the first shipment. So you know, we had lots of discussions with Operation Warp speed, you know, will be looking to attack the end of next week or certainly when they're going to be sent out to know exactly how many doses we're going to get in the first week. And then the expectation our weekly shipments to the hospitals and to Walgreens and CVS for those distributions. I gotta ask a lot of depending here on the ability of operation Warp speed to carry this out effectively And with Corona virus testing, the federal government kind of fell down. I mean, There weren't enough tests. Some of the tests were not accurate. Initially. How confident are you in the ability of this Trump Administration program to get this very difficult job done? We have heard directly from General Purna. You know, we have confidence in them, but I'm sure it will be a significant logistical challenge. This has to occur throughout the United States, all at the same time to all of the states, the territories. And then some specific large cities. And are you also concerned about the smooth handoff from one administration to another? I mean, if the distribution depends on Operation Warp speed, which is a Trump administration program will the Trump Administration only has so many more weeks in office. Now, the Department of Defense under General Karna, you know, will still be there in terms of continuity, But in terms of the representatives from helping human services and the administration, we would like to think that they'll be robust conversation. Nation and communication as the administration transitions. Obviously, that has not happened as much as it should have yet, But we're hoping that all those communications will be going on forthcoming. Just to get back to the scale of the logistical challenge here. This is a vaccine requires two doses weeks apart. Do you have the infrastructure to track and time who has had a first dose when yes, we do. But that is a information technology challenge in terms of making sure that we get the right vaccine into the right person at the right time. And then not only the visor vaccine, but the Madonna vaccine that also is a to dose vaccine. We've heard so many states talk about the extreme budget pressure that they are under and this is an expensive undertaking. Do you have the money? You need to do it? And if not, do you think the federal government is ready to provide it well, it will be essential for the federal government to provide more funding to the States territories in cities that will be tasked with ministering the vaccine. Operation works speed cost billions and billions for the development of the vaccine on Lee $340 million has been allocated for the next part of the mission, the distribution and the administration so clearly states and territories and cities. They're going to need more funding from the federal government to finish and accomplish this mission. These issues you're talking about could occupy you for more than 40 hours a week every week, and you are at the same time dealing with a spike in Corona virus cases and having to contact trace people who may have come in contact with exposed individuals, overcrowded hospitals. How are you juggling all of this at once? Well again. This is the public health challenge of a lifetime. I don't think any of us have seen a 40 hour week. You know, in our memories I stand corrected three ways to deal with the pandemic. You can work on containment that involved the testing and contact tracing very hard to contain a virus that has spread this far. For example, Today we are reporting 11 over 11,000 new cases. In Pennsylvania. It's impossible to contact that many people, so we have to prioritize. We prioritize to congregate, setting such as nursing homes and other long term care facilities, Correctional institutions, schools, etcetera, Then we have mitigation. Basic mitigation sets his mass and hand washing and social distancing. And then in Pennsylvania, you know we had to have a stay at home advisory. And you know, we have really tried to recommend that people avoid not only large gatherings but small gatherings. And then they'll be the vaccine those of the tools and the public health to box that we have to work with. When you're dealing with community spread on the level that we are seeing now, where there is so much of this disease and so much transmission of it. Do you have to change your approach? I mean it, Zeke gone from hand to hand combat to fighting an army out. Imagine it has And so the basic public health tool of containment, which we would do for a small measles outbreak or for it outbreak of tuberculosis? That is extremely difficult for public health to do when we're seeing this type of widespread community transmission, and then we have to pivot to more and more mitigation. It's a very unpopular it is made public health officials sometimes unpopular throughout the nation, but they're absolutely essential to try to stop the spread. And then we have the light at the end of the tunnel, which is the vaccine, but there's no quick fix to hope in 19. After Rachel Levine, Pennsylvania Health Secretary and president of the Association of State Health officials. Thank you for talking with us in the middle of everything else that you were doing. My pleasure. Thank you very much.

I think it was Charlie or to Martin forget who that they want it? But I mean they've they've had enough of this they need. This is the how long we were told two weeks. We did our job and they feel like to. You know to win now. They're all we had. I think a stay Red Mark Lombardo at a couple of other people were pushing reopened Massachusetts and they're Republicans they should have the ear of the governor. He's he's hanging on for us. By the way you want Mark Lombardo. Who is a is a rebel? If ever there was what he's a Massachusetts and he's taken on the establishment every day when he shows up unfortunately he's gotta take on the governor. A former Republican turned absolute a dark red dark blue liberal. Who is As as anti-business as any governor in the country who is determined by the way? I think I think Charlie's go governors goal is to be the last state to open up. He wants to be the last state he does not want to appear like he's following you know trump's lead or following the Republicans lead at all But we'll we'll check in with mark. He pays closer tetanus than we do. What's happening Mark Lombardo? We're we're battling out here you know. Tell us what's going to happen Monday. Mardi won't tell US Mardi says may may eighteenth. He'll let you know and I know you know a number of small business people who are hanging on. They don't know if they are supposed to hire people that day or you know. Bring him into work that day. They're not snow. They don't know if they'll get to open their business. He just won't tell them what is the what is the point of in what is going to happen on Monday. Like anti the legislation doesn't know either because we're not being told anything not even the the Republican Caucus What we know is that the yesterday. The governor's this he doesn't want any leaks Pretty disheartening position. Because no one's asking for leaks whereas for clarity right business one. Can I open? Not You know how long and if. I can't open. Can you give me some prep so I can do what you're asking me to do? Whatever that might be I can only guess that we're GONNA see an extension beyond mateen. I guess June first. I'm here rumblings of stage. One phase one whatever the color coded chart that was released was orange. No it was light green. It was kind of a Pastel green. Mondays Yep yeah yeah well. I don't think I'm not convinced that it's going to happen on the eighteenth so in. May and I hope it. I hope we start kicking off but Alexander guaranteed with the Happening has been slow. Slow slow what's the.
