A Third COVID Vaccine is Poised to Enter the U.S. Market

"From wondering. I'm david brown. And this is business. Wars daily on this tuesday february night twenty. Three million americans have already rolled up their sleeves to receive at least the initial dose of either the pfizer vaccine or the moderna vaccine designed to prevent covid nineteen. Well now a third vaccine is on track to enter the us market. Johnson and johnson's corona virus vaccine just wrapped up a long-awaited trial and hopes to clear. Fda authorization by the middle of this month. The lure of johnson and johnson's vaccine is that unlike modera advisor it can be delivered in one shot that make distribution simpler with no need to follow up with a second dose. It's also relatively inexpensive compared to the others and while moderna advisors vaccines have to be stored at just the right temperature. Well below freezing. Johnson and johnson's doesn't have those stringent requirements for storage. It can stay viable in just a refrigerator for around three months. That means the vaccine will play a big role globally because it's easier to distribute to low and middle income countries. According to the new york times but the results of johnson and johnson's trial were a bit disappointing. At least at first glance trial results indicated that it was seventy two percent effective at preventing moderate to severe symptoms of covid in the us. That number is sufficiently lower than modern and pfizer's overall efficiency rates of around ninety four percent and johnson and johnson's rate drops to sixty six percent in latin american countries and to fifty seven percent in south africa which is dealing with a variant strain of the virus. But don't let those lower numbers food you scientists and immunologists say that johnson and johnson's vaccine is still extremely effective and researchers have warned that you shouldn't compare the effectiveness of the three vaccines because they were all developed and tested at different periods of kovic evolution. Dr william shafter an infectious disease expert at vanderbilt told the new york times that pfizer and moderna had an advantage because those companies did their clinical trials before the variant strains emerged. He said quote. Johnson and johnson was testing. Its vaccine not only against the standard strain but they had the variants now in a perfect world. Consumers might get a choice of which of these vaccines they'd like to receive but that would only be possible if there were enough doses of all three and right now. That's just not the case in early january. The new york times reported that the us only had one hundred eighty five million doses of pfizer and moderna vaccines to cover americans through june and at the same time doses that were produced quickly now risk expiring before they can get into the arms of those who need them. Johnson and johnson says that if they're vaccine is approved they can produce around one hundred million doses of their

"Election related is, Of course, this giant spike that we're seeing in covert all the way across the country of record hospitalizations across the country, No hospitalizations. It's one thing to say that our testing was insufficient in March and April, And so we're underestimating how many cases that were hospitalizations were accurately counting, according to The Associated Press. You have had a record number of coronavirus hospitalizations on Tuesday when surpassed one million new confirmed cases in just the 1st 10 days of November amid a nationwide search of infections that shows no sign of slowing. The NuWave appears bigger and more widespread than the searches that happened in the spring and summer and threatens to be worse. Experts say that we're in a better place, obviously, because we have improved medical tools just kind of baseline. Hospitalization is not a not a referendum that you're going to die. I used to be that if you ended up in the hospital, you are pretty much toast in March and April. That is no longer the case. The rates of death in hospitals all across the world have dropped precipitously is now about 1/5 of what it was back in March and April. Newly confirmed infections in the United States were running at all time highs well over 100,000 per day, pushing the total to more than 10 million and eclipse in one million since Halloween. They're currently almost 62,000 people hospitalized, according to the Kobe tracking project. Several states posted records on Tuesday, including over 12,600 new cases, You know what, always over 10,800, Texas and 7000 in Wisconsin? Hospitals all over the country are getting slammed. That is a problem because obviously, when it was kind of localized to hot spots like New York, you could bring in resources from other places to help care for people in New York, But if everybody is getting simultaneously hit, it's very difficult to shift resources where they need to be. Dr. William Shafter, infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University, says the virus is spreading in a largely uncontrolled fashion across the vast majority of the country. Democratic governor Tony Evers in Wisconsin, announced who's advising people to stay in their houses and businesses to allow people to work remotely require masks and limit the number of people in stores and offices. Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, a Democrat, order bars and restaurants to close at 10 P.m.. Now this is something I just don't understand, Franklin Is the virus less infectious? And like 9:59 p.m.. And do fewer people go out at 9:30 p.m. than they do at 10 P.m.. Iowa Governor Tom Reynolds Republican said she'll require massive indoor gatherings of 25 or more people inching towards more stringent measures after months holding out About one in 433 Americans tested positive for covert 19 last week. As the AP does no doctors know how to treat severe cases better, meaning higher percentages of Kobe 19 patients who go into ICU are coming out alive. Our new treatments like grim death severe which is given via ivy at the at the hospital, So you have to be hospitalized in order. Get remnants of here. Steroids accident zone again typically applied to people who have more serious cases. And then there's an antibody drug that one emergency approval from the Food and Drug Administration on Friday on Monday Also, the vaccine appears to be on the horizon, which should be widely rolled out by the beginning of next year. But the short term outlook is grim because people are beginning to get irritated with the lockdown policies because it turns out the lockdown policies overall, have been too stringent. Seriously like the fact is that if you if you tell people they cannot go out for eight months at a certain point, they're gonna start to go out. And then when they go out again, they're gonna infect each other. The harsh more harshly locked down. Less baseline cases, the fewer best based on cases you will have during lockdown. But then the harsh with Spike is gonna be when the lockdown is over. Nonetheless, this is driving people in the in the Biden incoming transition team to push for full scale lockdowns across the country. The team that Biden is putting together is not filled with epidemiologist. It is filled with people who sort of our insider inside the Beltway types. Ezekiel Emanuel, or I told Blondie and many of these people know something about the health care system, but they're not necessarily epidemiologist, so it's funny to see the media ripping on Scott Atlas. The doctor from Hoover Institution. That President Trump relies upon as a non epidemiologist. They have no such words for Ezekiel Emanuel, who also is not an epidemiologist, but who is advising Joe Biden at this point. Meanwhile, Dr Michael Osterholm, coronavirus advisor to Joe Biden said a nationwide lockdown could be on the table. Osterholm said earlier this week, the country is headed toward covert health. He said. We could pay for a package right now to cover all the wages, lost wages for individual workers for losses to small companies to medium sized companies or city State County governments. We could do all of that if we did that we could lock down for 4 to 6 weeks. Now I have a question. Why would that be effective? Seriously. Like what happened to the end of those 4 to 6 weeks, it's still winter. We're still gonna emerge. They're still gonna have to go to jobs. If you're seriously talking about locking down until the vaccine is available, what you really have to be talking about is locking down all the way until probably March. It is currently November. Do you think Americans are simply going to stay indoors for five months for five months, and we're just gonna continue to pay people out for five months? This is particularly ridiculous given the fact that again infections are not hospitalizations or death. But we really ought to be focusing on is making sure that we bring all possible resources to bear to protect people who are highly vulnerable and people who are elderly. When it comes to 20 year olds in college, where we expending resource is to prevent them from gathering. To prevent them from going home and visiting Grandma. Asked her home, was appointed to Biden's 12 member Covert advisory board on Monday. That panel adviser is culture by former surgeon General Defict Murthy, former FDA commissioner David Kessler and doctor Marcella Noona Smith of Yale University. Also doctor told Wanda and professor of surgery in health policy at Harvard and Dr Rick Break vaccine, asked expert whistle blower who resigned his post with the Trump administration last month so he gets the benefit of having come out as as not liking Trump. Gets.

"And WVU are I'm Jeremy Hobson, I'm Peter O'Dowd. This is here now and empty chair made news today on Capitol Hill attorney general William Barr, refused to testify before the House Judiciary committee where he was scheduled to answer questions about the special counsels. Russia investigation bar took issue with the Democrats plan to have a staff lawyer conduct. Some of the questioning the democratic chairman Jerrold Nadler left an open seat for the attorney general and then convened the hearing anyway history will judge us for how we face this challenge. We will all be held accountable in one way or the other. And if he does not provide this committee with information demands and the respect it deserves to bars moment of accountability will come soon enough. The hearing lasted all of twenty minutes of far cry from bars marathon yesterday before a Republican led Senate committee. Joining us now is Julian. Eleazar he's professor of history and public affairs at Princeton University in Julian this was really something of a spectacle today. There was the empty chair. Then one democrat brought a plastic chicken to the hearing essentially, mocking the attorney general what did you see today? Yeah. Once you're in the prop stage of congressional politics. Things are getting serious. I think those were moments that reflect the growing frustration a lot of Democrats have their watching what the attorney general has done how the presence responding to the congressional part of this investigation. And I think a lot of our frustrated about what to do. And they're not sure politically what steps they wanna take. And they're not even sure in terms of their thority what they can compel this administration to do in helping them. And so that's what you're seeing play out today. Democrats are frustrated, but so are Republicans after Nadler spoke this morning, the ranking Republican on the committee had attorney. Here's Georgia Republican Doug Collins, take whatever you wanna take. Go out and have press conference you from this. You can say whatever you want to have with the reason Bill Maher is on here today is because the Democrats decided they didn't want him here today. That's the reason he's not here. And actually the real fight Julian here isn't necessarily over this empty chair. It's about the Democrats demand that bar produce a fully unredacted version of the mullahs report. And it's it's for that reason that we could actually see contempt proceedings filed by the Democrats against bar, which is not unheard of in American politics. But a big step, right? You know, I think the Republican argument here is that the Democrats are going too, far the Democrats in general, I think are legitimate grounds. In terms of what they're requesting at this point. But this frustration is bubbling up and we saw this with our colder under President Obama. Ultimately, there was a negotiated end to documents that Republicans then wanted from the attorney general, and you've had these kinds of battles going back to Nixon. I mean, this was one of the main issues with president Nixon his refusal or reluctance to give over material during invested. Gatien? So this is not common, but familiar kind of battle. And and I think it gets to the heart of presidential power and congressional oversight. There was a fear that trying to impeach the president would be a risk for Democrats as they get ready to head into the twenty twenty election. But what about the attorney general is going after bar with either contempt proceedings or some people are even talking about impeachment. Is that carry the same kind of risk was at a safer bet for them. I think in some ways it can carry just as much if not more risk in that. It doesn't get to the heart of the issue in some ways, the president has thrown attorney general bar out there and all the focus is on him. So the Democrats could get wrapped up in a long process either of impeachment or contempt proceedings and not be dealing with the president not be dealing with the questions of what this administration is willing to do in terms of exercising power and still get all the backlash about continual. Pursuit of inquiry. So it might be the worst of both worlds. I don't know if you heard the anger in Nadler's voice. I mean, it is kind of what it heard to me just the tone of voice that he was using makes me wonder, if Democrats are sort of walking down a path that they're not able to bring themselves back from you know, because they're so angry that they don't they can't help it. I think it's more that President Trump might be pushing them down a path, and they didn't actually wanna take meaning every step of the way they're moving away. From impeachment speaker Pelosi says we don't wanna go there yet the president keeps forcing their hand. And almost testing them to say are you going to do it? And I think that's part of what you're hearing from Nadler. So Republicans are saying this whole Muller investigation is over the Democrats clearly not ready to move on house. Speaker Nancy Pelosi today, even cues bar of lying to congress. So the rhetoric is ramping up almost by on a daily basis who do you? Think the American people will ultimately side with here. Well, I don't know. I mean, the American people have not sided with President Trump only and how we see national approval polls on the other hand support at this point for impeachment still remains pretty low. It's a process, you know, it can change if the Democrats go down that route public opinion might shift. So I think it's very hard to predict the public doesn't know a lot of this. They don't even know what's in the report. So in some ways imagining how they'd respond to this is premature because they haven't seen hearings. They haven't seen all the information. So it's a lot of speculation. All right, Julian professor of history and public affairs at Princeton University. Thanks as always, thanks for having me. Well, a cruise ship off the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia remains under quarantine after someone on board contracted the measles. It's unclear what happens next for the three hundred people on the ship. But in the mid. Of this ongoing. Global measles outbreak. There have been a lot of questions about who may need a measles booster shot. Joining us now is Dr William Shatner, professor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Welcome back to here. Now good to be with your Jeremy. And I have to say every time I hear another story about another piece of this measles outbreak. I wonder about all of the people in this country who may have been vaccinated so long ago that they don't even know what the status of their own vaccination is I have to say I texted my mom and said, by the way, we were vaccinated for measles. We she said. Yes. Yes. You were. But at what point do kids get vaccinated for this? And how long does the vaccination last? Well, children's start to be vaccinated either a twelve or fifteen months of age, and then they get a second dose usually at age four five or six somewhere in there. Fortunately, the protection from the vaccine is. Lifelong for ninety seven percent of us. So that's really an excellent vaccine. So there's no booster shot needed as an adult. There's no booster shot needed for an adult. Now that said if you're an adult who is vaccinated before nineteen Eighty-nine and you're going to an area of the world where there's ongoing measles transmission. You might want to review your status to make sure you got vaccinated. And if there's any insecurity, just get another dose of 'em are to be sure. Now, there's another piece of this too. Because we just spoke with the director of the CDC last week. Dr Robert Redfield who laid out two categories of older adults who may have different immunities to measles. Here is those of us that were born before nineteen fifty seven are really assumed have had wild type measles and our moon for life. There is a small group. That were vaccinated between nineteen sixty three and nineteen sixty seven that may have received a killed vaccine, which is not as efficacious. Okay. So so that confuses things a little bit. Tell us more about what people should know if they were born in those years will if they will born in those years, they may have received the very first visa vaccine, which has doctorate 'field said was a killed vaccine that turned out not to work very well because it's protection waned very rapidly. Many of those people subsequently received the vaccine we're using now alive vaccine. But if you're a traveler as I said to a place where there is measles that's be transmitted internationally, or if you're one of those adults who's living in a current community with there's and there's any kind of insecurity about your measles protection. You can just get. A ghosts of MR the measles containing vaccine, it won't hurt you in either way, and it can provide some peace of mind if you have come in contact with someone who has measles. But you yourself are vaccinated can you pass measles onto a third person? No, you will not because you're protection will prevent that from happening. So you're not only protecting yourself. You're protecting people around you because you will not be a transmitter. What do you think needs to happen right now? Dr shafter get this measles outbreak under control and make sure that next week and the week after that and the week after that we're not hearing story after story about a new outbreak somewhere else in the world. You've just heard me because every child that is undocumented. If they were vaccinated today. This problem would end completely in two weeks. The issue really is unvaccinated children we need to extend the protection of the vaccine to all of those children, and we can once again, eliminate measles from the United States. That is Dr William shafter, a professor at Vanderbilt University.

"On talk radio five, sixty ks. Epo. I love it. This whole thing is that cockamamie idea haven't seen cockamamie in a news story for a long time. So this is Dr William shafter, not shattner William Shatner, he says this whole thing's that cockamamie idea what what thing what things are you talking about? So he's an infectious disease specialist at a professor at Vanderbilt University school of medicine say says, this whole thing's that cockamamie idea save your eighty bucks. What's he talking about? So listen to this is the latest. This is a Los Angeles startup. They're offering to let people choose their own. Well, okay. So, you know, there are a lot of people who don't like the flu flu shots. Now. I don't get those things. People just for whatever reason, I I know our listeners got a lot of people. They don't believe in the flu shots. Okay. So that's you don't wanna flu shot. You don't need to get a flu shot. So what this startup is doing is catering to a lot of these people. Don't want the flu shots. They're saying that for eighty bucks you can buy. Well, if I could just get crude you gotta by basically a box of us issues. He's our tissues that carry basically a human sneeze. So they will expose you to viruses that are on the tissues to serve as an alternative to flu shots and similar vaccines. Disgust. So it's not like, you know. Yes, it sounds disgusting. But just to be clear. So you would get these tissues and they look like regular tissues and. But what you don't know is that within the tissue. Are these various illnesses? And so the idea is when you blow your nose these various, you know, these. These these cells these infectious cells get into your nostrils and. Therefore, you take on a bit of the illness. And therefore, you know, the idea is like a flu shot, you're not gonna get the full blown illness. That's that's the idea. That's how they're selling. It sounds like a terrible idea. So it's interesting. They're they're saying, here's some of the the slick the slick wording, we're not talking about chemicals or prescription or prescription drugs here at bay of. That's the name of the company v. We were inviting customers to get sick on your own terms. The company is unclear whether the tissues are artificially treated or coated with materials from an actual human. And that's what I want. Yeah. They're not telling you. Willing to take. Here's Dr William Shatner. So he's the infectious disease specialist. He says this is potentially hazardous if it does work so it is potentially hazard if it does work, and he said, I don't think it works. There were there over two hundred common cold viruses out there, it's suppose you get infected with one from these tissues, you can still get infected again because there are other cold viruses out there. But what about the flu? How about a flu virus? You know, if there's only one flu virus, that's kind of floating through the through the country. If you get that flu virus into your system. My question is do you only get a hint of the flu or do? You get the full blown flu. Or or is this all a placebo? Anyway, shafter says he finds it unlikely that viruses would even survive the journey from the company's headquarters to your home. He says quote, save your eighty dollars. This whole thing is a cockamamie idea. Good work, good, use of the word cockamamie. That's all I wanted. That's all I cared about. With the whole thing. I just wanted to see the use of the word Kaku baby and writing in print. I don't think I'd have to spell that. How do you still cockamamie cockamamie? I think you could spell it any way you want to. There is no formal spelling for cockamamie. So here we have now, this is another medical story that we'll we'll deserve a DOE. This is really a terrible story a horrific hospital up Brooklyn. Brooklyn woman, grieving for nine days at the bedside of a brain damage man who doctors insisted was her brother. Okay. So she gave consent to have her brother taken off of life support. And then she learned the shocking truth. Her brother was actually in jail. This guy that she saw thought was your brother was a stranger. So she gave the go-ahead to take him off life support and let him die. Oh my gosh. Can you believe this? She I mean, she she's she feels terrible because she was able to make the decision to end somebody's life. Now. She feels like a murderer, right? Somebody. She didn't know she. Yeah. I but. Yeah. Right. I mean, this is this is this is the hospital's fault. It's not hers. Right. Right. But what I'm saying, basically, I know I know what you're saying. Yeah. It's crazy. I would say to her is like, hey, just relax. You didn't do anything. You're good. It's it's fine. That's wild one. How awful. But yeah, they mix that up. Well, you know, and the thing is obviously these two guys must have looked somewhat alike. Right for starters. The hospital assumed it was this. This woman's brother. They told her that the brother was brain dead their tubes. Coming all out of his body. So she makes the decision because they were looking for family to make the call. She makes the call boom. Oh, jeez. I mean, what a what a tragic mistake. They had the same name her brother and the victim had the same name. Oh. Crazy. Crazy. Yeah. And there is the rest of the story here on case for twenty six minutes past six o'clock is our time right here. Four one five eight zero eight fifty six hundred so Donald Trump's out there.
