"New York state now has ten times more coronavirus cases in California does KCBS is Kathy Novak explains why that's the case there's a lot of talk of courage these days and right now California is is much flatter than new York's Stanford epidemiologist Dr Steven Goodman says that could be because we sheltered in place earlier there is some hint that the actions we're taking right now might be having an effect the problem is of course that everything we see today is a function of what happened a week or two ago but another reason for the higher number of confirmed cases in New York could be because that state is testing many more people and with test still in short supply it's hard to know how many have really been infected the numbers to really focus on a number of hospitalizations and then sadly the number of deaths because those are unaffected by casting right now New York has suffered about four times as many deaths but we have been warned that the worst is yet to come

"Okay we begin as always with your latest updates on the news before we get to the politics. So the corona virus map today is showing a vast increase in the number of deaths in the United States over one hundred deaths yesterday in the United States. We're up to five hundred ninety. One total deaths at this hour in the United States from Corona Virus. Forty six thousand four hundred eighty five cases diagnosed so far now. We are expecting these numbers to rise. Obviously that is not a great shock again. We are testing once we start testing. You're going to start finding things that you are testing for. As opposed to what China? There's rumors that China's actually continuing to see coronavirus cases and they stopped testing. And that's why they're not seeing an increase in the number of cases that are out there now. One of the big problems here is that China Path is one of the great hopes for the world. Because China's been able to tamp this thing down it makes everybody feel like okay. Well maybe we can tamp this thing down to. That's why more people are putting faith at this point in South Korea which is C. Nine thousand total cases in one hundred and twenty and has not completely shut down their economy to do so. The difference being South Korea had massive testing regimes already in place. Thanks to h one n one in their response to SARS in the in the past because of all of that they had been pretty well prepared for all of this. The United States simply was not in your late on the game. Because we're late on the game the entire ballgame here has been. How do we shift from Chinese lockdown strategies? Everybody stay home into South Korean social distancing. Everybody were mask strategies were most of us can go back to work. If you're sick stay home. If you're elderly vulnerable you stay home right. Everybody keeps saying I hear this from a lot of people on the right side of the. Why don't the old people and the vulnerable people? Why don't they just stay home? And everybody else goes back to work and the problem is right now. There's too much social mixing. You don't know who has it who does not. There's no way to tamp down the people who actually are sick and so because we have not yet gotten this thing under control. You can't go to South Koreans measures. The question is how fast we can get there. Meanwhile in Italy the situation continues to be incredibly grim. Italy has about sixty four thousand cases at this hour with approximately six thousand total deaths. Their death rate is significantly higher than that of the United States. Again we have. We are gaining on them in terms of total number of cases but we have fewer well under one thousand deaths at this point. Just about six hundred. That's Italy has sixty four thousand cases in six thousand deaths that is because their healthcare systems being overwhelmed and that is why so many people in the United States right now are worried about the overwhelming of our healthcare system. At this time that is why people are also worried about Abed's shortage looming in California. According to The New York Times Governor Gavin newsom estimates California will be short about seventeen thousand hospital although the state is frantically trying to source thousands more of them. The pace of testing remains stubbornly slow in California are then hearing from hospitals in the area that they are indeed inundated with people are coming in for Corona virus. Although we have heard no stories about ventilator shortages at this point in time Elon. Musk actually came up with a thousand ventilators yesterday. Where quickly ramping up? Production across the country of ventilators of masks of personal protective equipment. That's those as you hear everybody talking about. And the fact is that takes a little while for the US economy to get going on this sort of stuff but once industry kicks in we are fantastic at producing what it is. We actually need to produce. New York state has conducted twice as many tests as California for the virus as of Monday. New York attest almost eight thousand people including thirty three thousand in New York City California had conducted twenty six thousand four hundred test by Sunday. That was the most recent data available officials in California rush to reopen hospitals. That had been shuttered by motels to house. The states more than one hundred and fifty thousand homeless people and retrofit college dormitories to serve as hospital. Wards again the homeless problem in California continues to rear its ugly head because the fact is that Los Angeles homeless people are not exactly socially distancing now all of the fun and Games with regard to letting people live on the streets declaring ever right to live on the streets and be a health threat. It turns out that has some pretty serious consequences. There's some video of La Homeless folks not exactly people who are concerned about cleanliness and social distancing at this point and you can drive around Los Angeles right now and you can see. There's nobody anywhere but you'll see large congregations of homeless people in downtown. La under overpasses by the river. None of that speaks well of possibility of Tampa down the corona virus epidemic Gavin. Newsom said the state is chartering flights to China to procure protective equipment. China has been has been hoarding all that protective equipment. Oh those wonderful folks in the Chinese government is some video that we're talking about of the situation with the homeless in Los Angeles. That looked like a place that is a thriving and ready for health to you. This johnstown. La Across California. The promise of widespread access to testing for the virus is not yet materialized. Doctors say they were alarmed about shortages of protective equipment. One of the other big problem. Is that the states are handling this sort of differently and so well. California has lockdown and New York has locked down Texas and Florida have not yet completely locked down and this is leading epidemiologists to believe that there could be hot spots in some of the states that have not yet locked down that are not yet measurable meaning. The testing is not happening in Texas and Florida. The same way. It's not happening in California but lockdowns have not really gone into place in Texas in Florida the same way they have gone into place in California either in New York City the attack rate meaning the amount of transmission rather the the number of people who have this thing in the general population in New York is much much higher than anywhere across the rest of the country so far as we can tell. New York is actually testing but in California which is also starting to test. The rates are nowhere near as huge and that is because of course. New York is an extraordinarily populated area. When you have that many people living right on top of each other the possibility of hands. Ma transmission becomes much much higher. There's been true literally forever. This is why when you read old old books about. The plague hits London and all the rich people immediately jump in their characters and head off to the country cottage. There's a reason for that. People are trying to do that. New York right now. They're Frank Fleet of Florida and Florida saying no. You don't get in stay. You're not bringing your corona virus with you here. Dr Deborah Brooks pointed this out at a at a press conference with President Trump. Yesterday she said yes. There's an alarming attack rate in New York City. Here's Dr Deborah Brooks The New York Metro area of New Jersey New York City. I'm parts of Long Island. Have an attack rate close to one thousand. This is five times what the other areas are seeing their through the high throughput lab investigations. We're finding that twenty. Eight percent of the submitted specimens are positive from that area where it's less than eight percent and the rest of the country so to all of my friends and colleagues in New York. This is the group that needs to absolutely social distance and self isolate at this time. All of that obviously is true. Tens of the Israeli enemy in a situation like this says Dr Steven Goodman and epidemiologist at Stanford University with large population centers where people are interacting with more people. All the that's where it is going to spread the fastest. We'll get you more corona virus updates particularly economic updates. Because we're starting to ask the UNESCAPABLE question here and that is the question that we should have been asking all along. How do you balance all the policy considerations and I know that that's considered bad taste? We're not supposed to say things. Like how exactly do we generate a policy that is most likely to save the economy and also save lives? Were instead supposed to say that everything shuts down until every life is saved. And that of course is not plausible. I mean the fact is that we had some point going to have to unlock the economy. The question is how we do that in the safest possible way. That doesn't mean that we go back to work tomorrow without any protective measures. It also doesn't mean we keep the economy locked down interminably forever because that is not going to happen either people. I've seen a lot of folks who are protesting that that president trump and people who are talking about the economy. You're overlooking human life. How could you look in life? It's not that you're overlooking human life. Is that every public policy. Consideration is a balancing of various outcomes. That you're waiting and if the suggestion is that we do everything we can in the United States to save even one human life. Well then we should all be walking around bubble. Forget about it all the time. If you walk around and bubbles we should go back to horse and buggies the fact is that lots of things we could do in the United States to quote Unquote Save. Lives they also happen to destroy the economy. Which would have its own horrific side effects so all of this is public policy balancing and that's not an unspeakable question in fact it's the only question that is worth asking at this point when you're talking about government policy when you're talking about what exactly the federal government state governments ought to do when you get to more of this in just one second first. Let's talk about how you are going to look when you emerge from this situation. Are you GONNA look sharp? Are you GONNA look cool? So let me tell you something. I am. Not a natural born cowboy. Right I'm an Orthodox Jew from a major city but I've always had a soft spot for a cowboy attire and this is particularly true of boots. Well a few years back I went on. I got myself a pair of cowboy boots. I've never been able to wear them since because my wife laughed at me and instead now I'm using the best pair of cowboy budgeting find because there are subtle and they are cool.

"This is the worst public health crisis for regeneration. Some people compare it to seasonal flu. Alas that he's not right owing to the lack of ood immunity. This disease is more dangerous. And it's going to spread further and I must level with you level with the British public. More families. Many more families are going to lose loved ones before that time. British Prime Minister Johnson. He did not close. Schools are banned gatherings of more than five hundred people. Britain's chief medical officer said in a worst case scenario more than eighty percent of Britain would contract the virus with one percent mortality rate that equates to more than half a billion deaths five hundred thousand half a million deaths half a million here in the United States during his press conference in Vermont Thursday Senator Sanders said the federal government would prioritize the care of communities. Who are that. They should prioritize the care of communities. Most vulnerable during the corona virus pandemic the elderly people with disabilities in house. People low income people. Those who are uninsured an unemployed we need also in this economic crisis to place an immediate moratorium on evictions on Foreclosures and on Utility shut offs. So that no one loses their home during this crisis and that everyone has access to clean water electricity heat and air conditioning. We need to construct emergency homeless shelters to make sure that the homeless survivors of domestic violence and college students quarantined off. Campus are able to receive the shelter the health care and the nutrition they need Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. We'll debating in Washington D. C. as opposed to Arizona where they were going to debate and there will not be an audience because of the Corona Virus Dr Steve Goodman Dan Dean at Stanford Medical School and Justin Leisler professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health or with us from Baltimore and from Stanford California Dr Steve Goodman this issue of the poor in the United States and people who are working poor who are without insurance people who are unemployed while everyone says that the corona virus hits everyone which is clearly true there are communities that are particularly vulnerable right now how they be protected well this is an issue for public health officials. Obviously they have to be able to take the same measures that anybody would take to to reduce the spread. The ones we've already talked about however the ability for less wealthy or poor individuals to take time off from work to sequester themselves in their homes To Take care of their children May Be quite different than than others. So we we have to think about it. I think Bernie has it about right. We have to think about this as a social responsibility. Not just a an issue for individual action because people's ability to protect themselves are constrained by their own economic circumstances in their own living circumstances if they're living in very very tight quarters with many people in in in in in communities where other people might be sick it is very very difficult for them to take care of themselves and needless to say if they don't have access to medical care or they're afraid to seek it because of Because they're afraid of the bills. That's another huge problem. Easy for people to get tested and to access care and if they're undocumented and afraid to seek and afraid to seek testing as well absolutely justin less slur if you could also address this issue and then. I'd like to ask you how you're talking to your children so I agree. It's absolutely critical to find ways to protect those populations that are not going to be able to take social distancing measures have more trouble with that potentially have food insecurity if they don't go to school or go to places where there might be mass gatherings and I think you know it's one of those things where we do have an individual responsibility not to just you know. Keep ourselves out of the community but do things to help others. Keep themselves out of the community. You know the government is going to be overwhelmed by this and you know we're not as a country set up to provide services in a crisis the way is maybe needed now and now there's a bill being weighed. The Democrat led. House set to vote on a bill that would grant workers fourteen days of paid sick. Leave up to three months of paid family and medical leave. Unemployment Insurance to furloughed workers includes additional five hundred million dollars to help feed low income pregnant women or mothers with young children who lose their jobs or laid off because of the virus outbreak President Trump said. He did not support the bill. But because we're coming to the end of this conversation as people push hard for the entire community to be protected the that sits individuals but it also brings out the importance of people around the world as a community. Can you talk about what you're saying to your kids professor less ler? Yeah I mean my son is six and his school just got cancelled so I'm trying to explain to them that there's the disease out there. It's scary It's wondering why his dad's working so much but the I'm trying to explain to him that it's important to wash his hands that it's important to you know. Think about what he's doing out there in the community and that maybe he won't be able to go to school do the same things that is that he is usually able to do for fun. I can talk more explicitly to my mother who is in their seventies in high risk who I had to sort of say this is real. Stay home self isolate. Don't don't go out and this is why is that. The children don't tend to children. This is not as fatal for as it is for older people especially over seventy and eighty right. I mean and Wuhan at last report I saw from Honda was in detail out of out of thousand deaths over a thousand deaths. Only one was in people somebody under twenty years of age so it's pretty mild and children do not seem to be at risk even more so than the flu where we see children get sick and potentially die occasionally in the youngest age. That doesn't seem to be happening right now for the current virus and but we do not know we know they can get infected and we do not know whether or not they can pass it on so you know keeping children Critical part of our more imperilled presumably. We don't know for sure And Steve What you tell your kids my nieces and nephew who are bit older but also as so many people in this country afraid right now. So what's interesting is that my kids are both in college actually here at Stanford and they're more worried for us. I don't have to tell them everything anything they read. They're smart and they're much more concerned about their threat to us than Than than anything else. So they're taking the steps they need to take to prevent us from getting sick. And it's a very interesting reversal of generational roles. Perhaps a premonition of the future but I think this is a responsibility that many young people feel not just protect themselves because they themselves are not that worried but they are definitely worried about the older generation the same way that Justin is concerned about his mom and of course Gerald Starter just had a baby here in New York in the midst of this pandemic indeed. Yes and she is Naturally self isolating but Is is being extremely careful about her own exposure and needless say their new child. Well I WANNA thank you both for being with us Dr Steven Goodman Associate Dean at Stanford Medical School where he's also professor epidemiology and public health and medicine and also my brother and just in less ler says she professor Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. We also want to welcome to the world. Andre Sorry Marino Camarena congratulations to eagerly and Drian. That does it for our show. Everyone wash your hands be safe. I'm Amy Goodman an enormous.

"Enough to go to a doctor or per infection which is something different because not everybody who is infected necessarily goes to a doctor looks to be a fair bit higher than the flu. Maybe on the order of five times maybe even ten times higher than the flu so we have a maybe a much much larger reservoirs susceptible people on the order of ten to twenty times larger and we have a fatality rate. That is between five and ten times larger. So that's why the potential for this even though we have a tiny fraction of the cases and deaths right now why we're taking the extreme measures that we are taking now. All that said a lot of the Taliban rate can be affected by what we do. And that's why we're doing it now. Because the fatality rate is a function both of the age of the people who are infected but also of the capability of the medical care system to take care of them. So we can protect the medical care system that is keep the number of patients coming in at a rate that they can be cared for with adequate ICU beds and ventilators et Cetera. And also healthy Medicare folks. We can keep the That we can keep the totality rate low or least lower than it would have been without that. We're going to break come back to this discussion. We're going to talk about strategies to keep yourself and your family healthy what to say to children both of you. Dr Goodman and Dr. Leslie have children how you're talking to them about. What could be to say the least extremely frightening for them as it is for the whole population and I want to ask Dr. Less learned about the study. He did in China comparing Wuhan and how it dealt with the corona virus with community. Right next door. We're talking to Dr Steven Goodman. He is associate dean of the Stanford Medical School and just an Leslie. Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Associate professor this is democracy. Now we'll be back with them in a minute is The where A Long Day is over by Norrie. Jones this is democracy now the warring piece report. I'm Amy Goodman and I also just want to say I can't say enough about the team of people who are making this broadcast possible as everyone in this country right now is dealing with this pandemic as people are around the world it takes a community and we have an amazing one here and I am ever thankful every single day seven weeks since the first case of the corona virus was reported in the United States. We're spending the hour looking at. How the trump administration not only has failed to account for what is clearly thousands of infections in this country because of ongoing problems with access to testing. But we're talking about what needs to happen next. This is the critical issue. We're broadcasting from New York. The mayor of New York just cleared a state of emergency in the city. He said while they're about a hundred people who have tested positive just in New York City alone next week. He expects it to be a thousand just down the road in new Rochelle. Westchester is the epicenter of the Corona Virus And that came from one person who tested positive and very soon after his wife and two kids tested positive and now there's well over one hundred fifty people. The National Guard are now in new Rochelle. The schools are closed. They WANNA make sure kids get food because many kids all over this country get free lunch at school. What happens when the schools are closed? So we're going to be talking about a lot of issues still with us. Is Dr Steven Goodman? Associate Dean at Stanford Medical School where he's also professor of academia in population health and medicine Trained as a pediatrician. He is also my brother. My lifeline on issues like these. He's joining us from Stanford University and joining us from Baltimore is Justin Leslie Associate Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Senior author on a new study that suggests the median incubation period for the new corona viruses about five days so Justin Leffler I WANNA start there. What does that mean? Why is that significant that the incubation period is perhaps five days? We've been hearing a lot about ten and fourteen and then I want to ask you about your work in China. So the median incubation period is five days so that means a fifty percent of people are going to develop symptoms within five days of being infected. But it's important to remember that's not necessarily the number we're most concerned with if we're thinking about quarantine active monitoring or self-isolation after a potential exposure. Because you know we don't have the people who are infected to be out there on in the community potentially spreading the virus before they know they have it so what we're more concerned with is what we call the long tail of that and that's where we get to the fact that in our study we showed that about ninety. Eight percent of people develop symptoms by twelve days which suggests that the fourteen day period of quarantine or active monitoring suggested by almost every public health agency around the world is pretty good. I mean some people will get through that But you know but it's pretty good and it's going to capture. The vast majority of people who would develop symptoms will do so during that period. So let me ask you about your work in China. Talk about the study that you just completed comparing Luhan to a neighboring city. Tell us about the outbreak in Wuhan. What happened how it was dealt with and how it was dealt with nearby so just to be clear. Our study was looking at the epidemiology in China. We weren't directly comparing with Wuhan but Wuhan just to talk about it. Had you know is the epicenter of the entire outbreak? They clearly had things get out of control in the beginning and had the shut down the entire city and really a lot of the whole province of WHO bay which they've now had to do in Italy as well so it's an example of both how bad things can get if we're not careful about staying on top of things and very proactive. But it's also an example of the fact that you know massive direct action can sort of squash the epidemic and stop the virus so where we did our work in Shenzhen. There hasn't been a big outbreak and part of that..

"System does not is not really geared to what we need right now. What you are asking for that is a failing and it is a failing. Let's admit it. The fact is the way the system was set up. Is that the public health component. That doctor that doctor Redfield was talking about was a system where you put it out there in the public and a physician asks for it and you get the idea of anybody getting it easily. The way people in other countries are doing it. We're not set up for that. Do I think we should be yes? But we're not okay. That's really disturbing. And I appreciate the information. Dr Found she. Statement appeared to directly refute a claim president trump made just last week. Anybody that needs a desk. It's a test we there there they have the. Does anybody WANNA test gets test. That's what president trump said. This comes the trump administration's corona virus task forces gun two days with no press briefings and the World Health Organization has officially classified the Corona virus outbreak as a pandemic for the rest of the hour. We're joined by two guests and Baltimore. Justin Leslie is with us. He's associate professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Senior author and new study that suggests the median incubation period for the new corona viruses about five days and joining us from Stanford University. Which is now close to students on campus. It's got online learning. Dr Steven Goodman is with US associate dean at Stanford Medical School where he's also a professor of epidemiology and Population Health and medicine. Oh and he's also my brother. He joins us from Stanford University. Yes they are continuing light Johns Hopkins to hold their classes online over concerns about Cova. Nineteen we welcome you both to democracy. Now Steve Let's begin with you. I consider you my lifeline on issues like this and that's why we called you. Why don't we start? By this issue of testing it is absolutely astounding that in countries like north like in countries like South Korea where we hear the test or something like twenty thousand a day in this country. It is believed that there have only been eleven thousand tests over the entire period of this outbreak. How is this possible? What happened? Well I don't know all the details of what happened. But it is clear that they were decisions that were made centrally about what test to use and restrictions on who could do the test that has been changed and finally other laboratories including one at Stanford have finally been authorized to Develop and now deliver their own tests so the original decisions to use a US specific test not the one That was suggested by the. Who which has been used in many many other countries in retrospect obviously was a big mistake and we had trouble manufacturing and distributing a valid test centralized at the CDs. Now this is a critical issue. Right I mean there was a test available. It was the World Health Organization tests the one that countries all over the world are using now but the CDC made a decision not to accept that test. They made their own passed. Sent it out and it was faulty. That's right now. We're having to depend on the many labs around the country and commercial laboratories to develop and offer this test. We are really just gearing up now for that The Stanford test which is the one that's being used regionally also for a variety of medical institutions. I think they This week they were offering between two and three hundred a day. They say that next week they'll be up to about a thousand a day. That obviously is not remotely enough to track the where the epidemic is going But that's what we have right now. Regionally nationally I don't know what the capacity is but as Dr Fao. She said we are way way behind. Well let's bring Professor Justin Wrestler into this conversation from Hopkins from Johns Hopkins. Let's talk about. Why testing is so important. Why is it so important that we know in this country Where the disease is where the outbreak is. Why is it important to know the number I mean this is our ability to have situational awareness about what's going on with the virus where it is how to react. So the most extreme measures that we take to combat the virus essentially potentially closing whole cities down like they did in China Italy. We don't WanNa do those places where there isn't a lot of you know there isn't actually a lot of disease and we don't want to wait till the hospitals are filling up with dead people to do those because then it's too late so we want to react in time and that has to that means we need testing and that means we need to be testing with the right intention. I think there is still some inertia towards trying to test people who've traveled etc with the idea that we're going to go around those people and contain and Tristar contacts and try to find those chains of transmission But I think we maybe need to rethink that with the idea that we really want is situational awareness about what's going on in the community and what's our silent out you know. What silent outbreaks might be happening so that we can respond? Accordingly in our public health measures in terms of people isolating themselves. Dr Steve Goodman if you can talk about what it means not to have a test so you don't know even if you've been exposed to someone who has tested positive and also. Isn't that true that these tests at this point in most cases take days to get results although there are some that are now being developed that simply take hours but what it means for people protecting the community well as Justin said people don't actually know what the threat is. They don't know how many people around them have the disease and they don't know Obviously whether they themselves have the disease if if they have been exposed so it's very very difficult for either public health authorities to calibrate the response properly is Justin Just described or individuals to calibrate their own actions. And and I also want to point out that when we talk about self-isolation or anything that an individual can do the paradigm really has to be not. Just what can I do to protect myself? But what can we each do to protect each other and the act of self isolation is not just individual protection is protecting everybody. You're in contact with but to know how extreme the behavior should be whether you should not go to a park whether you should not go to. The store is very much driven by. Your awareness is just describe it. Situational awareness of how many cases there are often silent cases in your own community in your own neighborhood going to your own stores so this decision. That's personal decision has social and health consequences but without testing. We're flying blind. I WANNA go to the issue of Corona virus. And if you could talk about the different steve or what? The language is corona virus. Cova nine thousand nine hundred for people to understand. Explain that the lexicon there of this disease and also how it compares to the flu. President trump has repeatedly tried to say that the flu kills tens of thousands of people. He said who knew the flu killed. It actually turns out that his grandfather. Friedrich trump died of the flu in this country at a young age but he tried to use it to show you know. Corona virus doesn't even compare so talk about both the language we use and what it means in comparison with the flow. Well Cova nineteen is the name of the disease not the virus specifically And what we're most concerned about is obviously The spread of the disease. Let me talk about The flu and the flu is a big killer and it doesn't affect many people. I think we have roughly in the range of fifteen to twenty million in this season alone in the United States with roughly one in two thousand death rates so in the in the range of fifteen to twenty thousand deaths from the flu so a flu is very very serious. But that represents roughly five to seven percent of the population and the We have and the reason it doesn't represent more is because both we have flu shots and we have years decades of of of of sort of cross reactive immunity built up over people who've been exposed to different Virus strains the difference in this with this virus is to first of all no one is immune so in theory. A hundred percent of the population is susceptible to this virus or very close to it. the second part is the the fatality rate Either for people who present to the medical care system sick.
