World Health Organization declares coronavirus a global public health emergency
"Now though the World Health Organization has declared the outbreak of the new virus from China a global emergency this after the number of infected people spiked more than ten fold in just a week Dr William Shatner's professor preventative medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University school of medicine he has worked as an epidemic intelligence officer over at the CDC so doctor what does it mean that the World Health Organization now says this is a global emergency what does it change it doesn't change things very much it makes formal what's been going on informally in effect it puts the country of China in quarantine and the travel to and from China already voluntarily much reduced I think will breed reduced even further so it will have substantial economic implications of for China but should reduce the risk further that this virus will be exported from China to other countries we are seeing more person to person transmissions though so does really reduce the risk of some bunch people of already been there and left in it might take up to a week or a week and a half to really see the signs of this well here in the United States with had very few imported cases and I can tell you both the clinicians and the public health folks in the hospitals we're all have this at top of mind and we're all collaborating and so for all the cases have been detected very quickly put in isolation they are given good treatment safely and the public health folks have gone and found all the contact of those cases educated them and have them under surveillance so the system is working well at the present time in the United States now we also have not seen so far outside of China any deaths attributed to this corona virus right why is that is that is it too early to to form any conclusions about that or is it sort of indicating something well there may be a surveillance bias you know in China one has lots of much older people and people with underlying illnesses just as is always the case but the people who've traveled outside of China both the people who return to their home countries or Chinese tend to be younger tend to be healthier because they're doing international travel so the notion is that those folks probably don't get quite as severely ill how do you think their reaction wins in China as compared to lessons maybe they learn from sars or lessons that they still have to learn the communication initially about the nature of the virus and the genome that was communicated to scientists all around the world was brilliant and very very rapid Chinese however are struggling given the nature of their healthcare system and how they work within their government to contain this epidemic it's been great that the invitations of the World Health Organization and the CDC have now been accepted they will send teams to China to collaborate with colleagues there to get a handle on this outbreak steers and I'd like you to do for the next minute or so doctor I'd like you to address not the average American but the average American hypochondria well what would you tell that person well I I would say look take a deep breath step back a bit first of all be reassured that all of us who are responsible for this all have the top of the mind and we're working very closely together and then if you like comparisons think about the virus that's out there now in every state making people sick sending them to the hospital and causing deaths many fold larger in the United States it's called influenza it's an old friend it's an old enemy but we're used to it so that familiarity if it doesn't breed contempt at least breeds a certain nonchalance but your chance of getting seriously ill formed flu is much higher than from the corona virus at present so tickled breath and be reassured that we are all working on this very hard to prevent an outbreak in the United States are we ready though for something big let's say this one gets squashed but there has to be either pandemic at some point I mean people are selling books of there's a Netflix show about this it seems very very timely and everyone's like this is going to happen some day will it will happen some day we don't know when it will happen and we're much better prepared than we were ten to fifteen years ago scientifically and administratively organizationally are we ever going to be perfectly prepared no but we're much better able to respond think how quickly this virus was identified the genome determined and now there are people all over the world collaborating on developing a vaccine that won't help in the next month or so but down the road it will be great to have a vaccine in hand so let me ask you a personal question I guess you know more than than I know and Mike knows and probably a lot of the people who are listening to this program know about this do you personally I don't mean on a scientific Sir curiosity level if you're concerned about this I'm I'm sure you are at that level are you personally concerned for you your family trolls I am not at all concerned about myself and my family my neighbors and friends here in Nashville I am scientifically fascinated and concerned for the phenomenon that's going on in China and how quickly we can get it under control but personally no not at all Dr William Schaffner professor of

"An all news one zero six nine. And AM. Seven forty KCBS KCBS news time six twenty one. The evola outbreak in the Congo, which has spilled into Uganda. This week has the World Health Organization on alert. The outbreak is the second deadliest in history, and has killed more than fourteen hundred people since last August. However, a committee of experts with the WHO say that the outbreak is a health emergency in the Congo, but it doesn't yet meet the criteria for the declaration of a global one. We're gonna talk more about it. We're gonna turn to the KCBS ring central Newsline, and speak with Dr William Shatner, a professor of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University. Dr thank you very much for talking to us tonight. Good to be with you. Tell us a little bit more about what triggers the declaration of a global emergency are there, set standards. There are standards of course, they have to be evaluated by the experts. It has to do with the propensity of this infection to spread beyond the borders of the Congo and nearby. Uganda. Spread throughout the world, and my fingers across because fortunately over the about ten months of this outbreak. There's been no transmission of this infection to western Europe Canada, the United States or other parts of the world. So so far, we can deal with it locally without making it a global emergency shelter, or are there breakthroughs in, in terms of dealing with the bullet that we, it's been a while, since we've talked about just how deadly this disease, and how difficult it is to stop its spread and so forth. Have there been developments advancements since the last time we were talking about this? You bet. The important thing is that there is now a vaccine, and that vaccine is being deployed in the Congo, it's given I, of course, to healthcare providers and then it's being given around cases and it has clearly. Inhibited, the spread of this virus, not enough. Because the virus continues to spread particularly in rural areas and the local populace you know, there's a fair amount of turbulence, they're still does not entirely trust healthcare providers. They're not bringing their sick relatives into the hospital for care. And on the care side, we're doing a better job of treating patients so that they can survive the infection. What does the declaration of a global emergency do? And why not why would some people in the country, not want it declared him? So what it does is put all kinds of constraints on travel, commerce and other things in the country and the countries around the Congo. And that makes it much more difficult to get people in and out get the medical teams in and out. And you interrupt commerce and the entire way of life. So you start to have an adverse economic impact on the very population. You're trying to help Dr shafter, always great to chat with you.

San Mateo, San Francisco International Airport And Measles discussed on KCBS Radio Weekend News
"Will a new report suggests that the threat of contracting measles is greatest in regions with international airports regions, like San Mateo county KCBS Keith Makoni reports from San Francisco International airport on what puts the entire bay area at increased risk for the measles airport is a gateway to the world, but it's also a vector for infectious disease. That's a finding highlighted by study published in the journal Lancet infectious diseases, which places San Mateo as the eighteenth most at risk county in the nation. Dr William Shatner who teaches medicine at Vanderbilt University says the findings come as no surprise to him. Needs to be imported into the United States from other parts of the world. Of course, where they're still having these bills and cities with large international airports are going to be at risk chapter says the way to prevent needles during travel is to get vaccinated, and that's important not just for your own health.

"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, like because they're so angry that they they don't they can't help it. Well, 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 SP. 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 molar investigation is over the Democrats clearly not ready to move on house. Speaker Nancy Pelosi today, even accused bar of lying to congress. So the rhetoric is ramping up almost by a 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 in 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. 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 Zelezny, 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 midst 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 fort. We she said, yes, yes. You were. But at what point do kids get vaccinated for this? And how long does the vaccination last will children's start could 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 life long 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 nine thousand nine hundred 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 MMR 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 of had wild type, measles and our immune 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..

Wide spread says, Dr William Shatner, a vaccine expert at Vanderbilt University medical school. They should go ahead and talk to their healthcare provider, particularly if they're in two groups if they're going to be traveling internationally to any place where there's a.

"Occurred in people who had been previously vaccinated for more. We're joined live on the KCBS ring central Newsline. By Dr William Shatner, professor of preventative medicine at Vanderbilt University. Dr shafter, I don't know where my childhood vaccination records are I know if I need to get revenge donated. Well, Susan, many of us couldn't find our pediatric vaccination records. And the only thing we need to focus on is are we high risk adults. Are we going to travel internationally to countries where there is measles? Or are we living now in a community where measles here in the United States is being transmitted? And if you're concerned in and you're in one of those two categories just go to your healthcare provider or to your pharmacist roll up your sleeve and get a dose of vaccine. Don't make an operatic. Okay. So people are going to ask right away. Do I have any concerns about having had a vaccination then get another one? Is this something you can get three or two of and run into trouble. And so on. Yeah. Good. Question stamp. Thanks for asking. Because there is no downside risk. Whether you have been vaccinated before or not the M our vaccine, that's the one that contains the measles vaccine is safe and wonderfully effective, by the way, I should point out of Holly coir colleague on her day off is just texted. How they never really takes a day off to say she's going to get a measles booster during the doctor said Chile had five doses left people apparently are clamoring for these will go out and find them because the measles vaccine is out there. And if you have any concern about your protection, go ahead and get vaccinate. You know, some childhood illnesses can affect adults a lot more strongly is a measles. And example of that. Absolutely. Susan people who get measles win. They're older or more likely to get the complications, particularly pneumonia. And then that inflammation of the brain substance, which we call encephalitis so both severe. Complications. So if you're in a community where there is ongoing transmission of measles, or you're traveling to a country where measles is out there. Either check your records or just get a shot. Let me flip that question about being older around to the reality for a lot of older Americans. Susan, I'm sorry to say you might be in that category. South nothing wrong with it, of course. But we had measles as kids. Do we need to worry about a vaccination? Do we have lifetime immunity? You have lifetime protection. If you've had the real measles. That's something. You don't have to worry about that's wonderfully. Well established. Okay. But now, you sorta said the real measles. Are there other illnesses that our parents might have thought were measles or that we might have incorrectly? Understood from mama debt will if your own memory is kind of a and if your mom and dad, don't remember. But I'm sure they would if they were still around, but you probably can't get your pediatricians records if you're fuzzy about that. But if you were born before nineteen fifty seven the chances are very very good that you experience what we call. Wild measles or real measles. And measles are not the mumps two different things. Right. Completely different. Right. Measles gives you. A rash? Mumps gets you that swelling on your face. So many kids these days, we'll never know the joys of those. And that's good thing. Thank you for the time this morning, Dr William shafter, professor preventive medicine Vanderbilt.

"Got a cold two weeks ago last Wednesday this Wednesday. So it's been almost two weeks. And and this time last week. I just I just felt like garbage. And I still am just dead tired. Most of the day just sucks the energy right out of you. Lot of people have this. Called. I knew it wasn't the flu. I was at the doctor's office the day. I knew I was getting it. And the cold or the flu I can just feel it back there. And he said, well, you'll know by tomorrow, and it kind of eased in so I knew it was a cold. It's that time of year when the cost of a co worker just across the the office can is enough to send you run into a wash your hands or asked to work from home. But if you ever have you ever thought yourself, how close can you get to somebody who is contagious with the virus and still be safe? Now was I don't remember what the what we just read a statistic like last week that a sneeze. Thirty six miles an hour or some some stupid like that. Anyway, the according to the CDC a person with the flu can infect anyone within a six foot radius. The organization says most experts think that the flu virus spreads mainly by droplets. Made when people with flu cough, sneeze talk. I'm seeing more and more people wearing these like, surgical masks. In fact, when I went to the doctor's office. They've got a box of them sitting there at check in that says if you're coughing or sneezing, please wear these. I don't know how you are. How do you work in a doctor's facility or a critical care or even a pharmacy and not be sick all of the time? These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lugs and less often a person might get flu by touching a surface or an object that has a flu virus on it. And then touching their own mouth or nose or possibly there is this flu specialists by the name of Dr William Shatner. Ads. And you could be sick for up to two whole days before symptoms actually start. The CDC says the best thing you can do to prevent yourself from getting the flu. Is to get your flu shot. Yeah. So there we go again. Who's getting the flu shot? If you ask ten people, it's about a fifty fifty split, isn't it? It's not scientific, but. There's a. Mcgill university. Researchers from university. Just released poll that says scientists prove that men are more sensitive to pain than women. You think men are more afraid or shots than women? Maybe afraid it's not the right word. But it yet does probably does come down to that. Do you think don't you think that part of the stigma of not getting a flu shot is people? Don't want to shot volunteering for the shot is kind of like saying, hey, do me a favor punch me in the nose. Punch me in the arm. I wanna make sure my arm sore for the next couple of days. Men and women experience a lot of things differently including pain, and according to researchers from university who did a study on mice and then again on humans forty one men and thirty eight women ages eighteen to forty took part. Researchers subjected the humans do a certain amount of pain in their arms, and then the next day and repeated the pain inflicting process, and when they were taken back into the same room as the first day men raided the pain as being more painful than they did the day before. And they also rated it as being more painful than women did. Researcher guy by the name of Jeffrey mogul says we believe the mice and the men of mice and men. We're anticipating the pain and for males the stress of that anticipation caused greater pain sensitivity. There was some reason to expect that we would see an increased sensitivity to pay on the second day. But there was no reason to expect it would be specific to males. But they essentially think they have proven that men are more sensitive to pain than women. Women. I think are more prone to go to the doctor because they have to per se. And they're subjected to things that guy is going to sit there. Go through what a woman has to go through at a doctor. And so Consequently, I I'm not so sure that women don't get to some extent somewhat immune to the process or accepting of the process because it's.

And even if it doesn't prevent the eldest this very important it tends to make the illness. Milder exactly if it boost your immune system. You might be just that little boost you need and the difference between life and death or you getting sick, very very, severely or not. There's some of the reasons parents give for not vaccinated children, including too busy, not getting strong recommendations for their medical providers. Oh, come on. Parents really. Please blame us your their parents. You know about vaccines. You know? And the poll the top three reasons parents said if not getting vaccinated was they were concerned about side effects that it doesn't work very well. And that the curly healthy child need not be vaccinated. So. This is a tricky subject. Okay. Because. Have the right to do what's best for their child? But then sometimes you have stupid out there. And so who takes over or do we not take over the this is something that's that's very controversial. And I definitely see both sides of it. You know? We don't want the government taking your healthy child. And injecting something into it into your child when there is a show one percent chance of there being a side effect. And we don't wanna live in a society that does that that will take your kid away and inject them. This is your baby. And it doesn't matter. How we've progress in society, mama bear, you know, we'll come out. You don't touch my baby on the flip side, though. There are some things that we may know more than you. And if flu kills and we feed the flu shot can help your child. We are going to encourage and recommend it. Now, we've been fine roughly with okay, you want to get your kids vaccinated get your kid vaccinated. If you don't you don't that's all been finding Danny until we've gotten up to the subject of schools and Wien and being allowed to enter school without be vaccinated because then the subject comes. Well, what about her immunity? We don't want you to put other kids at risk. So we want your kid vaccinated. So other kids don't get sick. This is not a very easy topic. It trust me. It is going to go all the way to the supreme court later because you have some parents that claim a really believed that there are side effects to these vaccines, and again, nothing is perfect. I mean, no, scientists will say there one hundred percent wrong because there are there is always that, you know, distant percentage.

"Seven. It was one hundred years ago World War One was just a couple of weeks from being over but just as the world starter debris the little easier. It suddenly seemed dangerous to breathe at all a third of the world's population about five hundred million people came down with the so-called Spanish flu that winter. According to the centers for disease control and prevention, at least fifty million people were killed. The United States got off comparatively easy, but still nearly seven hundred thousand Americans died of the flu that year. It's a reminder, why public health experts fear the flu and say that the rest of us should give it a little more respect. Hilarity breeds indifference at the very least and people just talk about the flu very casually and kind of throw it off. That's Dr William Shatner, professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at the Vanderbilt University school of medicine last year was really an horrific year. We had a terribly bad virus, we have a growing older population in the United States and that the population that the virus has its greatest effect upon in terms of producing complications and hospitalizations and debts and even today, I think the average person technologists flu, but doesn't consider it that seriously. The flu is a big deal. And I talked to a lot of patients and families that say the same exact thing you said while the flu is not a. Big deal. I've had the flu before the flu. Oh, isn't it? Just like the cold. And I tell them that. Well, the flu is a little bit more serious. It's more serious illness than just a common cold, Dr Jean more. Johnny is a pediatric hospitalised at Arnold. Palmer children's hospital in Orlando, Florida. The problem with the flu is that. There are people that can have flu related complications. And these aren't people that have multiple medical problems. There are perfectly healthy people that can have really bad complications such as pneumonia, which is a lung infection from the flu last flu season about eighty thousand people in the United States died of the flu. And it's complications. That's twice the number that died in car crashes, and while some groups are at high risk, even the young healthy and strong can be laid low for a week or so or even worse. Very young children are at high risk of complications women. Who are pregnant are at high risk of complications their rates of complications. When they get flu approximate that of seniors last year in particular young adults adults younger than age sixty five were also seriously affected. And then of course, there's the traditional older group. But even if you are a twenty two year-old Olympic.

"Workers who are going in and trying to help these desperately sick people. Yeah. Because often they're the ones who end up turning around getting very sick after they've been handling these these six, folks. That's was a huge problem in the west African outbreak of couple of years ago. And now that we have this vaccine. Health care workers are protected and using obviously the appropriate infection control equipment, and and and procedures with the vaccine healthcare workers are now in a safer space as they try to do their humanitarian work, we've got to go, but why just children and health workers? Why not everybody getting the vaccine there's just a limited amount of vaccine available, and they're trying to get out and first of all do the healthcare workers because they're providing the care and then the children so parents they're want their children protected.

"Thursday, sunny, brisk and chilly once again with a high of just fifty two degrees. Friday, lots of sunshine, still cool though with a high of fifty eight degrees. The debate over flu vaccinations for children is heating up again. After the first report of a child dying from the virus this season more. Now from our Dr Tarun rule on the pediatric death in Florida was an unvaccinated child with no known underlying medical conditions. This comes as a new national survey shows, some parents don't see the benefits of the flu vaccine, it found more than half believe that their children can actually contract the flu vaccine and a third believed the shot does not protect their kids from the flu at all. In addition Twenty-eight percent believe that it can cause autism infectious disease specialist, Dr William Shatner, every pediatrician family doctor has to be out there convincing all of us that flu which is so common. And so we're kind of indifferent to it is really a very fierce virus. This CDC is urging everyone older than six months to get vaccinated now flu activity off. Often begins to increase in October. So they expect to see an influx of cases in the coming weeks. We cannot rely on the flu virus to be predictable its fickle. It could turn into a hullabaloo in no time at all. Of the one hundred eighty three kids who died from the flu last season. Eighty percent were unvaccinated parents can opt for the nasal miss this year. And even if the flu vaccine is not a perfect match for the strain it decreases symptoms and severity. Okay. Taryn hirola. Thanks, very much still ahead.
