Azar says Trump administration aiming for 300 million vaccine doses by year's end

"You we're going to go now to health and Human Services secretary Alex ETS are he joins us from HHS good morning Mr secretary Marty Marty good to be with you again great to have you operation warp speed which is what the White House is calling this Porsche to have a vaccine by the end of the year three hundred million doses is the promise can you be clear here is the pledged that all three hundred and twenty eight million Americans will be able to get a shot in their arm by the end of the year Wilmar let's be clear that's a goal and you know I think the Gretzky's once said that you fail to achieve a hundred percent of the goals you don't set and so it's not a pledge it's a goal of what we're gonna mobilize the entire U. S. government private sector to achieve what happened is you know these drug companies and vaccine makers they all said it's going to take this amount of time because they're using their traditional approaches yes you do phase one phase two phase three trials in sequence then you do manufacturing well what the president said that's not acceptable so what we're doing is bringing the inefficiency out of the development process to make the development side faster to get to a safe and effective vaccines and at the same time we're gonna scale up commercial size manufacturing and produce hundreds of millions of doses at risk they may not pan out they might not prove to be safe and effective but we'll have it so we could begin administration right away you said hundreds of millions of doses that is not the same thing as saying hundreds of millions of vaccines ready to be administered to the American public you said this week that the entire American population could receive vaccines by January that's the goal can you that's a hundreds hundreds of millions we have hundreds of millions of people SO three hundred million is the goal and by January that we would set whether by one or multiple vaccine candidates ought to be able to have let's let's focus our energies on actually getting those vaccines developed S. one to set expectations for the American people because clearly you can have a lot of people wanting this vaccine will it require booster shots are you short two three hundred million doses is sufficient well those are great questions Margaret that's actually going to be part of the development programs that do you study is the is it a single shot do you have more of multiple with a booster what type of immune response do you get here that's why you don't go into battle with just one target here so we had a hundred candidates originally we've narrowed it to fourteen and we're gonna keep narrowing that down to maybe four five six that we really place the big financial bats behind and drive on and we might actually have multiple vaccines some of appropriate for different populations in different settings as we said as we see the data gets generated here president trump said on Monday we have prevailed on that same day may eleventh all twelve of the different models that the CDC uses projected that there will be over a hundred thousand deaths by June first how can the administration say we've prevailed when you see a death rate climbing like that what will Margaret as you remember the president clarified that in response to a question that by prevailed he met with regard to testing by building that really novel comprehensive private public sector diagnostic system here in the United States he did not mean the disease burden here and he would actually cutting clarified that you could never speak of prevailing or or success when there's even a single death every death is tragic the disease burden here has been here and across the world has been has been horrible we work to minimize that we believe that our actions to delay and and and and and and flatten the curve saved hundreds of thousands of lives that otherwise could have been lost but but that's still nothing to revel in in terms of any loss of life is tragic for the president or for any of us in the public health world absolutely but given that some of the states are starting to reopen parts of their economy and there's a lag time of sometimes two to three weeks before you see the virus show up how what how much of a sense do you have about whether re opening is re infecting the populace at large weld these will be really important questions Margaret for us to study drug comprehensive surveillance system so that's why a critical part of re opening has been influenza like illness surveillance another hospital admissions surveillance as well as syndromic testing of a symptomatic individuals especially in high risk communities and that's what actually what's going to be really helpful with this federal system in the approach the president's taking of having each state taking a localized decision it's gonna give us really good data you know we don't know what risk of re opening and in other words just yet but you are going to be monitoring it is what you're certainly well we certainly will we'll be monitoring but we've seen some initial instances of states like Georgia that have reopened Florida that's re opening that we have not seen but again it's still early days we think the tools are there and it's also important to remember you know this gets set up as a health versus a consummate kind of conflict it's actually health versus health we see we see in suicidality we see reduction in cardiac procedures cancer screenings on pediatric vaccinations there is a real very real health consequences to the shutdowns that must be balanced against as weak as we try to reopen this economy and move forward absolutely whistleblower Dr Rick bright is going to appear on sixty minutes tonight he specifically names you and his complaint as having downplayed the catastrophic threat the last time that you were with us here on face the nation was March first and at that time you told me what your viewers need to know is the risk to the average Americans remain low do you stand by that I mean do you take responsibility for any missteps you might have so taken so Margaret I think if we found the entire clip that on because I was using words only the doctor found G. Dr Redfield Dr shook at doctor medicine EA would tell me to say in the would repeat publicly also I believe what I said is the rest of the average American at this time remains low but that could change rapidly we always were I was always focused on warning that the situation could change that at the moment the risk was low to any individual American so I stand by that in the sense that that's what the public health people where I don't make this stuff up I go with what felt she and Redfield and shook it and Massenet and others does say because they're the public health experts certain certainly but they report up to you the CDC has been blamed for failure and mistakes with testing do you take responsibility for that so we were confronting a situation that's completely novel there is never been a national immediate testing regime across public and private sectors we have had to literally build this from the ground up Margaret that's what should folks don't quite understand here is that the CDC's role is to develop a an initial fairly low throughput public health test that health labs will what will do for initial diagnosis but then we count on the private sector actually to scale up these high throughput large task capacities and that's what we've done in historic time you know these tests normally takes six tonight any for any problems that the CDC has admitted to having had we wanted to see what problems that the CDC have the CDC had an issue as they scaled up manufacturing of tests to get them out to about ninety public health labs there was apparently a contamination at an end stage there on the third party re agent that never led to false negatives or false positives bought that prevented some of the scale up for a couple of weeks but that was never going to be the backbone of testing a broad mass testing in the United States market that depends on the companies like Abbott and Roche and thermo Fisher hi I just want to cover your calling Peter Navarro has said that the CDC let the country down given the CD well reports up to you do you take responsibility for that what do you think about that I don't believe the CDC let this country down I believe the CDC serves an important public health role and what was always critical was to get the private sector to the

S. response to the corona virus and what steps does he believe officials need to take moving forward well he talked a lot about how the administration wasn't ready for this and the reason he said that was because he said he warned are you know officials in the administration that this was coming that this was going to be an issue and then they didn't prepare they downplayed it the same criticism we've heard against president trump for the last couple months if they didn't I prepare for that that's why you know medical supplies tests and other things were not ready to handle that and he he had a really strong warning about what's to come in these next few months where he says it's going to return as we've heard other medical doctors talk about and that the administration won't be ready and he thinks that it's gonna be the same situation that administration fee based up just a couple months ago well the central point of doctor writes whistleblower complaint is that he was removed he says for raising concerns about the drug hydroxy chloride quit president trump had touted as a potential treatment for the corona virus how would the president and top officials at the department of health and Human Services responding to Dr Wright's claim well you're exactly right about that one of the things he said was that the president's women some of the things that the president said and also political connections are were they reasoned that decisions were made not medical science you know the department of health and Human Services has sort of just said they're not gonna talk about personnel issues but the White House in the press secretary there and the president have pushed back you heard what the president said just a couple minutes ago when he talked about how this was a disgruntled employee but you know the press secretary the White House did do some interviews about this today and she said well all the things that Dr Brighton mention the playbook if you will of what needed to be done we actually don't do we ended up you know doing all those things and you know are getting all that done and so what is he talking about all the things that he and others outlined are the things that were done and so they're saying that there's nothing there's nothing there basically huh well I need a we have also learned that Jennifer Santos the Pentagon's industrial policy chief was fired Thursday she was responsible for overseeing efforts to use the defense protect production act to produce more P. P. ET per personal protective equipment what more do we know about her dismissal what we do know that people on there and took him by surprise they were not expecting this and she wasn't expecting this she was fired for that job but will will go on to another job and we do know that this was something that the White House or the you know the highest levels of the administration we're looking at this wasn't something by her direct supervisor you know the president and the administration has been criticized for not using this act is soon enough that thing is that the president Delaney in using this this a law which would force our companies industries to help out you know manufacture these you know supplies that were needed and so you know there has been a lot of criticism on that but really the criticism that I've heard is really from the White House coming you know to the president he didn't act fast enough and if the president that needs to use that act for this to get going I want to ask you about a new CBS news poll that found thirty eight percent of Republicans believe the top priority for the country should be staying home to slow the spread of the virus now that's compared to eighty eight percent of Democrats meanwhile sixty two percent of Republicans said the top priority should be going back to work to help the economy that's compared to just twelve percent of Democrats so huge divides their Anita does this partisan gap reflects what we're hearing from the White House I think it really does this the polling is really interesting because the last few weeks we have been seeing this partisan divide across the country and the White House is recognizing that the president a lot of people that he talks to remember he talked a lot of business our folks even before coronavirus he was always talking to business people listed these are his friends people he's known up prior to him becoming president you know we aren't saying that we need to go back to work everybody needs to get back to where things were before for the economy to turn around in the next couple months or the next few months and so he's really been hearing that but more than that he's been hearing it from our elected officials on Capitol Hill Republicans he's been hearing that from elected officials across the country in eight races and state and state legislatures so there is been some divide I actually find it interesting that Republicans are not completely in tune with this either I mean they're a little bit split there is while some Republicans are saying they do want to still stay home so it's not one way or the other but definitely more Republicans are saying that they do want to go back to work and and you can see that by some of these protests that are against a lot of these democratic governors that have resisted that well our poll also looked at president trump's handling of the corona virus outbreak forty three percent now say he's doing a good job that's compared to forty eight percent in April and fifty three percent in March I need it in one ways are we seeing both the White House and the trump campaign try to shape public opinion yeah are those numbers are interesting but there were a lot of polls that show he had a little bit of a bomb right when the corona virus pandemic started you know that he was out there in front trying to do something you know this year I think you see service with similar similarly with our past presidents when there's a crisis going on you look to the leadership to see what they're doing with that mom has gone away as you can see more back to basically the numbers that the president has had throughout his presidency so far back into the forties in the low forties there are a lot of criticism that happens it happens are there have been very public the last four months criticisms that the president downplayed this in the very beginning like Dr bright said criticisms from state and local officials saying we didn't get the supplies we needed and criticism from hospital so I think you're starting to see that people are you know that's showing up in the polls all that criticism all those things that Americans have heard for the last couple months and the president and the his campaign in the White House are aware of that they are trying to give it to other things they're trying to show that he is acting and that he did act but they're also talking about a couple other things that he's getting along with state leaders this is a new development that they've been trying to tout that getting along with governor is working in a bipartisan way and that they're talking about China how China was to blame you see that a lot the trump campaign and his allies talking about how if the if China had let this pandemic get further into it escape China get to other countries we wouldn't be in I think would be in the place that we are today so they also happen to think that Democrat Joe Biden is not very good in China that he's weak anti and they want to show that the president's very top that he's going to be tough on China in the coming months if he gets reelected imagine governors a moment ago will governors received more positive reviews than the president sixty six percent say their governor is doing a good job of handling the outbreak compared to forty three percent who support the president's handling anything you recently wrote about how the president is trying to use these meetings with governors to benefit his reelection campaign what more can you tell us sure the president has met with ten governors in the last three weeks both Republicans and Democrats he's invited nine of them to the White House for meetings where you know they'll talk about the pandemic things that the states have a need but mostly it's the president praising the governors and the governors generally are praising him right back you'll see that some of that praise is being touted on you know are on Twitter and social media by the trump campaign I particularly from the Democrats that the trump campaign it's put out two videos one digital added one video showing Republicans and Democrats democratic governors praising him so he's very much wanting to do what I said before which is show that he's responding this is in a bipartisan way the federal and state governments are working together he's just trying to show that he is doing what needs to be done and he is he is out you know knowing what he does know what that was all show and that these governors have a twenty percent or more higher approval rating than he does so generally you see as someone said to me generally you see our governor is going to the White House trying to bask in that are you know limelight of the White House but actually the other way around the president's trying to use the governor's popularity to help himself yeah it's been really interesting to watch that dynamic unfold I need I want to turn to another development North Carolina Republican senator Richard Burr is stepping down from his position as chairman of the Senate intelligence committee it comes after the FBI seized his cellphone as part of a federal investigation into his stock sales how significant do need is for his decision to step down and also this investigation against him one of my colleagues on Capitol Hill reported that a lot of the senators did not realize he was going to do that so it was surprising to a lot of them reporters actually notified some of them is stepping down but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that he thought it was the right thing to do that senator Burr said this morning that he was going to step aside they're not saying it's a permanent thing what they're saying is that it's while this investigation is going on you know this comes as a lot of legal experts who are watching this are saying this development that the FBI would seize or take his cell phone as part of this investigation is extremely serious I mean obviously that's probably extremely furious at anytime but to do this to a sitting senator it was extremely serious and means that they do not believe that there is a case to be brought whether that comes forward or not we don't know but there is some evidence there they had to convince the judge that.

He brought his concerns about the drug to other government officials. He says he alerted his boss for once for example at HHS. But with the President Daily Hawking it as a potential cure as well as hosts on the Fox News Channel Dr Bright says warnings were ignored ended up talking to a reporter about what was going on behind the scenes and for that he says he was pushed out of his job quote. Dr Bright concluded he was left with no choice and he had a clear obligation to the American public to protect it from drugs which he firmly believed constituted a substantial and specific danger to public health and public safety stock.

As far back as January after bright relayed concerns from domestic surgical mass produced that quote the mask supplies at imminent risk. Nothing happened for Week. Leading the mask producer. Email bright quote rick. I think we're in deep shit joining me now. Sam Stein politics editor of the daily beast reporter. Dr Rick Complaint today and Sam. It's it's a long and detailed document and it is quite revealing. What jumped out to you? Well two things. One is the stuff that happened prior to the corona virus outbreak. Which is he details. The systematically corrupt HHS process in which Huge contracts being awarded to people who are very close to top officials at the Agency. The more pressing thing obviously many detailed an administration that was basically had their heads in the sand. I with respect to the corner virus outbreak in China for weeks. Not Months you touched on a bunch of stuff early on but just warning for seeing that a shortage of n ninety five masks was going to be a huge problem and being unable to convince anyone up the chain that this is something they had to deal with also a or lack thereof around getting a vaccine in the developmental process which we now see the administration. The president has but he was talking with officials. January early February about the need to prioritize the stuff and of course got nowhere. But I think the larger thing I was it was interesting to hear. Kathleen civilians. Talk about this is that there's sort of a bigger picture here. Which is that. The careerist and the scientists in the administration were more or less ignored or pushed aside and have been since the onset of the administration's not just the disbanding of the pandemic units. But its people like Dr Bright who are dismissed as alarmist even though the scientist nistration and this is sort of common pattern that you see with his presidency where he goes more with his political guts and how he's thinking than actually doing any long term strategic planning and it's more than guts and there's an allegation of essentially corruption. Here right that that that you have career. Scientists and civil servants were making determinations based on the science and there's pressure from above from the trump administration to steer things in the direction of people that have a a monitor interest because they're buddies of the president like that. And that's one thing if you're talking about know a contract for buying pencils for a federal agency it's another we're talking about vaccines and lifesaving drugs right now. There's so there was this story which detailed the president's push for hydroxy chloroquine as therapy drug To be stockpiled against all sort of prevailing scientific evidence or lack thereof that it was effective in Dr Bright raise. Those concerns admitted that he brought to the attention or confirmed an inquiry from a journalist which ultimately led to his dismissal from his post. So that this is a case of someone saying this is really crazy. What we're doing is borderline not completely unethical. I mean stop and he took provocative steps to stop it. There was another story today. Involving a jared Kushner is Coronavirus tasks in which one of the complaints made against that was that Fox News personalities were able to jump to the front of the line in terms of getting people to hospitals that they deemed helpful. Or you know emotionally close to. So you're absolutely right. There's a horrific way to do this. In the trump administration is basically hitting every which is cronyism favoritism and dismissal. The science I want I want play. What a bride had to say about H- dismissal the of high hydrochloric being the kind of breaking point in terms of Administration take a listen. Americans need to have all the fax they need to know the truth about this pandemic need to be able to trust their government
