"Current Covid 19 vaccines still protect against severe illness caused by Delta variant, They say, uh and, um This. This goes on. This is who is a business insider? Uh, 18 top scientists from across the world have warned against giving covid 19 booster shots to most fully vaccinated people. In a review published in the land set on Monday. The experts said that the idea of boosting immunity to reduce Covid 19 cases was quote. Appealing and quote. But the current evidence didn't support widespread use of booster vaccinations in the general population, they said, citing 93 separate references. Okay, citing 93 references, the scientists Careful and public scrutiny of the evolving data will be needed to assure that decisions about boosting are informed by reliable science more than by politics. The review authors said. The group included Philip Crowds, and Marion Gruber, the two food and drug Administration officials who resigned over the Biden administrations booster shot plan earlier in September. So the U. S is expected to start rolling out booster shots from September 20th to shore up immunity against the Delta variant, which has mutations that can help it. Avoid the immune response. Now on and on. Okay, So we've got that also a story. That pop yesterday. I didn't get to it yesterday, 26 out of 27 land set scientists who trashed the theory that covid leaked from the Chinese lab. Actually have links to the Chinese lab. And Wuhan researchers The daily Mail with the story, and it has been widely reported now of the 27 scientists who wrote a letter in the land set Medical journal dismissing the possibility That Covid 19 originated from a Wuhan lab. 26 of them. 26 of 27 have links to the Chinese researchers, their colleagues or its benefactors, a new investigation has revealed on March 7th of last year, the influential Journal Lancet. Which I stopped buying into during the Iraq war. They came up with some really phony statistics on the Iraq war, and I have not taken their word for anything since they used to be a reputable organization. For me. They lost that standing long ago. March 7th of last year, The influential Journal published a letter in which the 27 scientists said they strongly condemned conspiracy theories. Those were their words surrounding the origins of the coronavirus pandemic that has impacted all corners of the world. All debate into whether Covid 19 had manmade origins or leaked from the lab in Wuhan, the Chinese city that was ground zero for the virus was effectively shut down by the letter. And now it turns out that 26 out of 27 have financial and other interests directly related to the Wuhan lab. And that is, um You know what we call corruption? You see, that's a prima facia evidence of corruption and you can't believe these people. So these are scientific. You know you're reading the paper host, scientists say, and it's supposed to be credible. But there's a thing called political science as well. Um Crazy crazy. NBC News has the story Comedian and S and L. So now live alum Jim Breuer cancels shows that venues that require covid vaccinations. Comedian Saturday Live. Jim Brewer's said in a Facebook post over the weekend that he will not be performing at venues that require proof of covid vaccination. For guests, uh, and interesting and kind of kind of a brave thing to do because of the fascist era that we live in the United States America. Now, let's get to some of this audience starts at Number seven is how you said Um uh oh. Yeah. Here's Joe Biden from December of 2020. There will be no mandates on vaccines. I don't think it should be mandatory. I wouldn't demand if you mandatory but I would do everything in my power just like I don't think masks have to be made mandatory nationwide. Nationwide locally statewide, citywide County one, but he definitely no vaccinations nationwide. That was then this is now. Jen Psaki. Colonel. Clever. Can we mandate vaccines across the country? No, That's not a role that the federal government I think even has the power to make. Nancy Pelosi in April of this year cannot require someone to be vaccinated. That's just not what we can do. It is a matter of privacy to know who is or who isn't. It's a matter of privacy. And it's a personal choice. My body my trust Anthony Fauci in August of 2020, No, definitely not. You don't want to mandate and try and force anyone to take a vaccine. We've never done that. We don't want to be mandating from the federal government to the general population, it would be unenforceable and not appropriate. That was then This is now Anthony Fauci Yesterday I would support that. If you want to get on a plane and travel with other people that you should be vaccinated mandate. If you're going to get on a plane. Well, then, of course, you've got to be vaccinated. That's different. Getting on a plane. You want to leave him. Dr Jonathan Rainer on CNN yesterday by on an airplane remains a hazard. Yeah, No one knows the vaccination status of any of the fellow passengers. You're locked in this tube and it's a privileged to travel. It's a privilege to travel. That's a new thing in the United States America privileged Dr Zeke Emanuel, brother of Rama Manual, one of the authors of Obamacare, There's more mandates. I wish he would have given. I think mandating vaccines for air travel, train travel or inner, Uh, state bus travel but also be important. Dr Lena when former president of Planned Parenthood CNN, uh, doctor fake commentator, there are privileges associated with being an American privilege. If you wish to have these privileges, you need to get vaccinated, travel and having the right to travel in our state. It's not a constitutional right as far as I'm as far as I know. To to to to board a plane. She's a doctor, not a lawyer now boarding planes, trains and automobiles. New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg left winger First of all in an infectious disease outbreak. Getting vaccinated is not a personal choice. It's not. It's something that we do for the community, and this has been long upheld with legal precedent. That's right. It's for the community for the greater good for the commune for the collective. It's the language of the Communists. So now traveling from state to state is a privilege like a driver's license. And of course, you're going to have to show proof to get on a plane or a train. Or to travel anywhere. So you're still going to reminded us of the hunt for Red October? Sam Neill and Sean Connery having a discussion about coming to America and traveling from state to state without papers. I will have a pickup truck and drive from state.

"Need to know, it's Brian's Big three number three. There's more mandates. I wish you would have given. I think mandating vaccines for air travel, train travel or interstate bus travel would also be important. Dr. Zeke Emanuel. What a joke Vaccine mandate mania. Joe Biden decided to divide in order to distract Mark rather than we'd get ready for planes, buses and trains to demand vaccines to ride. Not okay in my America number two. It's gonna be a lot more three point 5/8 or 10 years because it will continue all its partners never come off. Don't even scored out that far. But with that being said, that's a social reform. Uh, Joe Manchin. I have an idea. Let's raise taxes on everybody used money to pay for everyone. Cradle to grave funding. That's reconciliation Package. Democratic style. This has got to stop. Joe Manchin. Kirsten sentiment can do it. I hope they follow through number one. How meticulous was the planning? For the Trump administration declared May 1st withdrawal. We inherited a deadline. We did not inherit a plan, so no but no plan at all. It's amazing that it wasn't much, much worse. Unbelievable. The Congressman Sherman whether he should be embarrassed Anthony Blinken filibusters his way through as speed dating format on the House congressional hearings today he's in front of the Senate will bring you the latest on one of the worst military adventures. In American history, probably the worst. It's been internationally devastating to us. It hurt our allies. It hardened our enemies. Thomas Jocelyn joins us, now senior fellow at the Fountain of Foundation for Defense of Democracies, senior editor of the Long World Journal. Uh, Thomas. Do you blame Trump for all this? You know? Look, I mean, here's the honest truth Brian Brian does deserve Trump does deserve a share of the blame for this. He doesn't mean the agreement that he signed with the Taliban with Secretary Pompeo. Was what I've termed servile diplomacy. It was about as weak kneed as it gets, and it undermined the Afghan government. Afghan security forces emboldened the Taliban and did nothing really to, um protect Americans or protect American interests. I mean, you could say, Well, the Taliban allowed the US to retreat after the deal was signed in February of 2020, but That's not exactly a big diplomatic accomplishment. They're always willing to let us retreat. They just wanted us out. Um, and I think they did set the stage for the mess that we watch the catastrophe we watched this year, however, that doesn't excuse all the problems that we've seen from the vitamin ist rations by administration. You know, I got out of all these other trump deals. They could have gotten out of this Trump deal. The Taliban. They didn't. It was clear to me. You can see at the time when President Biden announced America was going to leave in April, he came out and said, Look, we're out. That's it. Let's roll should have begun. Right then and there, you know, As I was saying, then loudly get out at the civilians out. Get these people out. So we don't have a chaotic end point here. Saigon type moment. Unfortunately, they didn't listen. And now now to this day, you know the Biden administration have Secretary Blinken testifying on the hill. And he's talking about how the Taliban has committed to not allowing to not allowing al Qaeda to have safe Haven, Afghanistan. This show is just complete remarkable ignorance of the whole situation. Al Qaeda help the Taliban win the war. It's their Islamic emirate of Afghanistan to and just earlier this month, the Taliban released a video In which they glorify the 9 11 attacks. Instead, Americans deserved it that we deserve to be hit on 9 11. And here you have the secretary of state rattling on about the Taliban supposed counterterrorism commitment. It's all speaks to this gross failure of American leadership really across many years Now you know what I agree with you, and I've said this here with Trump. I never would have been talking to the Taliban, and I also don't think there was an urgency to get out of Afghanistan. He should have explained to the American people to have a counterterrorism presence. It's in our national interest. We've all got to Teri University. As a country, we would have understood it. There's no question if we say we want to support them forever. No one's going to buy into that. But there could have been away. Having said all that nobody could have handled it worse. And I can't believe the military one along with this at one point do you say you can't give me 600 guys defending country And if the Taliban calls and says I'm going to take Callebaut to Kabul unless you're going to take it and you say, Take it. We just want the airport. I mean, what kind of idiot says that? Brian. Look, I I just you know, you and I both, um think of ourselves as American patriots. I'm sure a lot of our listeners right now think of themselves as American Patriots. Part of that, as we want to support the American military and, of course, especially in many service members, But part of patriotism is to have patriotic dissent. Right And I'm sorry, but the U. S. Military's leaders are failure. A big failure. Successor generals now in Afghanistan failed and they failed upward. They didn't win a single battle. They didn't win the war. They lost the war. They couldn't get it right. No matter how many times they were asked to, They didn't really know what they were doing and the Long War journal part of what we've done for so many years, it's discouraging. Is document how wrong they were time and time again, You know that's a massive failure and what I'm worried about here, Brian. Going forward in our country is it seems now we've got a society in which When our leaders are elite fail. There is no accountability, right? Nobody's held accountable, and I'm worried about that going forward because that's basically how a society or country fails when you're there's no accountability is no competition. There's no iron sharpening iron. What happens, you fail, and there's no accountability for failure and need you fail again. And that's what I'm worried about These guys as we continue to face new challenges as a country, not just from jihadism, which now we're gonna have a whole another generation of terrorist threat that Afghanistan we have challenges from China and Russia and others. I don't trust these guys to take on those challenges, given that they didn't know how to defeat the Taliban. Couple of things. An individual battles are men. I think in just a brilliantly and a lot of these ways in which they took down and took this outpost and were able to take down this terrorist and able to direct drone strikes in But in terms of the overall strategy, you know, I think originally they wanted to get in and out because they saw what happened to Soviets. And then they realized the can't because it would be a mess. No, come right back. So it kind of kind of caught up in it. But the Afghanistan papers and reading the longest word journal, one wind. A lot of that We don't have time for that now a couple of things, Senator Menendez has says that just now, and it kind of encouraging, just said. That this was handled handled badly and people need to be held accountable and secretary defense turned down the request to testify to me. That's an excuse inexcusable. He probably has absolutely no answers. He looks totally out of his depth. Listen to a Blinken said yesterday Cut three. There's no evidence staying longer. Would have made the Afghan security forces or the Afghan government any more resilient or self sustaining 20 years and hundreds of billions of dollars and support equipment and training did not suffice..

"Employers how a lot of questions. Republicans are pushing back. But dr zeke emanuel says a mandate like this was really the only choice biden had. He tried to persuade people to get it. But we know voluntary efforts. Like this aren't gonna get enough and that mandates are going to be necessary. Emmanuel is the vice provost for global initiatives at the university of pennsylvania and a former member of president biden's transition cove in nineteen advisory board. He spoke with. Npr's michelle martin. On sunday we know that if we need eighty percent of the population to do something. It won't happen voluntarily. Even in our most just wars that all the country mobilized for you still need a draft voluntary. Things will get you so far. And we've seen about fifty percent of the population. Fifty four percent of the population now through voluntary effort has gotten vaccinated. And we're going up ever so slowly you're going to need mandates something more forceful to persuade all the people we needed to adopt the vaccine to actually get it. And i think the president bind has slowly lead the country to realize that so the president's mandate potentially covers about one hundred million americans about a third of the country's total population. What impact do you think. This will have on efforts to bring the pandemic under control. First of all we do know that mandates work when houston methodist hospital mandated. It's twenty six thousand workers. There was a lot of pushback a lot of noise about that. But in the end only a hundred and twenty seven or thirty seven of twenty six thousand employees decided they weren't going to get vaccinated prefer to quit so mandates work and that i think is going to make a big difference as we mentioned. The president's executive order also covers private sector employees. Now as you you know some business organizations and trade groups have already been supportive of this mandate but already. Many republicans are reacting furiously. They've called it a tyranny and this includes even some people like ohio governor. Mike dewine who is not among those who downplayed the virus or resisted other measures. He's taken some strong measures but even he's called this mistake saying people and business owners should make their own decisions about vaccination. So what what do you say to that. Well you know. Our founders understood that if every individual made decisions that would lead to on something important nationally important that would lead to chaos. You couldn't have individual freedom on things that affected everyone they believe in ordered liberty and ordered liberty requires certain rules where your action impacts others. That's in this country where we have driver's license why we say you can't go into a store without shoes and shirt on so we actually protect each other. This notion that freedom allows me to do. Whatever i want is something. Our founding fathers would totally reject that is not their understanding of freedom. Freedom is ordered liberty and part of ordered liberty as where we impact other people like infectious diseases. We have to actually all act together and they would think this is perfectly consistent with freedom and i think the president and most of the american population agrees with that. There's going to be a small group that doesn't and that's the people who we actually need to abide by dish mandate so before we let you go as we are speaking now cumulatively. Us cova deaths are numbering more than six hundred sixty thousand and with about fifteen hundred people dying per day and at the moment although the seven day cumulative average seems to be going down. Is that where you thought we'd be by now. No i had way back in march. Twenty twenty i'd say know probably get back to normalcy in november twenty twenty one and i was considered a real bad pessimist than and what i didn't anticipate was delta I think it was hard for anyone to anticipate how infectious and deadly Something like delta could be and second. I didn't anticipate how resistant a portion of the public would be to vaccination and now it looks like you know we're talking about spring twenty twenty two And that assumes that we have more mandates. I also might say michelle one of the things. I'm very nervous about at. The moment is looking forward to thanksgiving and christmas. We remember from twenty twenty. We had a big surge around thanksgiving and that declined on the a little bit and then a big surge around christmas because travel. I am very nervous that with people wanting to travel more wanting to see family. If we don't get that vaccination rate up very rapidly in the very short period of time we could have another double surge that would be. I think quite quite problematic for the country with very high death rate. And the only way to prevent that i think is Mandating vaccination before any air travel interstate. Trains interstate buses. You know frankly. You need six weeks before thanksgiving to make that effective because you need two shots in and you need two weeks after the second shop to really be fully vaccinated so we gotta start. Now dr zeke emanuel former in nineteen adviser for the biden administration. You're listening to consider this from npr. I'm mary louise kelley. And i'm jonathan wilson from wmu. And i'm rachel courteous last week. We reported that a dazzle zebras. That's what you call a group of zebras. Were on the loose in prince george's county on friday. Dc congresswoman eleanor. Holmes norton decided to have a little fun with the situation and released a satirical not at all suspicious statement saying she had nothing to do with their escape. But i have no idea how they got out. But i think zebras are just like all the rest of us once they get out and i going back in and make them in case you're wondering animal control officials still haven't managed to catch those five runaway zebras. So if you haven't a spot one you're not imagining things. It's considered this from npr. And.

"Get enough and that mandates are going to be necessary way back when? In April 14th. I began calling for a mandate, especially among healthcare workers, the Defense Department and others. And I think the president is slowly leading the country to accept the mandates. I just want to point out that you helped organize the joint statement among nearly 60 medical groups, including the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association. Just encouraging every health care facility to require vaccinations for its employees. So so when you say you know that voluntary efforts weren't going to be enough, how did you know? Was it because of that effort or something else? We know that if we need 80% of the population to do something, it won't happen voluntarily, Even in our most just wars that all the countries mobilized for you still need a draft. Voluntary things will get you so far. And we've seen about 50% of the population. 54% of the population now through a voluntary effort has gotten vaccinated and we're going up. Ever so slowly. You're going to need mandates, something more forceful to persuade all the people we needed to adopt the vaccine actually get it. And I think the President Biden has slowly lead the country to realize that so the president's mandate potentially covers about 100 million Americans, so about a third of the country's total population. What impact do you think this will have on efforts to bring the pandemic under control? First of all, we do know that mandates work when Houston Methodist Hospital mandated it's 26,000 workers. There was a lot of Push back a lot of noise about that. But in the end, only 127 or 37 of 26,000 employees decided they weren't going to get vaccinated. Prefer to quit? So mandates work and that I think is going to make a big difference as we mentioned that the president's executive order also covers private sector employees. Now as you you know, some business organizations and trade groups have already been supportive of this mandate. But already many Republicans are reacting furiously.

That's in this country. Why we have driver's license. Why we say you can't go into a store without choosing a shirt on so that we actually protect each other. This notion that freedom allows me to do whatever I want is something our founding fathers would totally reject. That is not their understanding of freedom. Freedom is ordered liberty and part of ordered liberty as where we impact other people like Infectious diseases. We have to actually all act together, and they would think this is perfectly consistent with freedom, and I think the president and most of the American population agrees with that. There's going to be a small group that doesn't and that's the people who we actually need to abide by this mandate. Before we let you go as we are speaking now.

"From NPR news. I'm Michel Martin. We're going to begin the program with a focus on this country's battle against Covid 19 and what could potentially be a turning point. We're talking about President Biden's decision last week to issue vaccine mandates for all federal employees and contractors, along with millions of health care workers. The president also issued a vaccine mandate for companies employing 100 or more workers. Also last week, the Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest in the country, voted to require vaccines for students aged 12 and up. We wanted to understand how significant these moves might be. So we've called Dr Zeke Emanuel. He is the vice provost of global initiatives at the University of Pennsylvania. And a former member of President Biden's transition. Covid 19 advisory board. Dr Emmanuel Thank you so much for joining us my great pleasure. So up Until this point, the Biden administration has tried a lot of different ways to get more Americans vaccinated short of issuing a mandate, basically jawboning Now the president has changed his tune. He's telling unvaccinated Americans last week that the country's patience is wearing thin. What's your reaction to that? Well, I think the president's done things very well here. He made the vaccine readily accessible. He made it free the educated people he then as you point, you say, jawboning. He tried to persuade people to get it. But we know voluntary efforts like this aren't going to get enough and that mandates are going to be necessary. Way back when? In April 14th. I began calling for a mandate, especially among healthcare workers, the Defense Department and others and I think the president is slowly leading the country to accept the mandates. I just want to point out that you helped organize a joint statement among nearly 60 medical groups, including the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association, just encouraging every health care facility to require vaccinations for its employees.

"Things considered from NPR news. I'm Michel Martin. We're going to begin the program with a focus on this country's battle against Covid 19 and what could potentially be a turning point. We're talking about President Biden's decision last week to issue vaccine mandates for all federal employees and contractors, along with millions of health care workers. The president also issued a vaccine mandate for companies employing 100 or more workers. Also last week, the Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest in the country, voted to require vaccines for students aged 12 and up. We wanted to understand how significant these moves might be. So we've called Dr Zeke Emanuel. He is the vice provost of global initiatives at the University of Pennsylvania and a former member of President Biden's transition. Covid 19 Advisory board. Dr Emmanuel Thank you so much for joining us my great pleasure. So up Until this point, the Biden administration has dried a lot of different ways to get more Americans vaccinated short of issuing a mandate basically jawboning now the president has changed his tune. He's telling unvaccinated Americans last week that the country's patience is wearing thin. What's your reaction to that? Well, I think the president's done things very well. Here. He made the vaccine readily accessible. He made it free the educated people. Then as you point you say, jawboning. He tried to persuade people to get it. But we know voluntary efforts like this aren't going to get enough and that mandates are going to be necessary. Way back when? In April 14th. I began calling for a mandate, especially among healthcare workers, the Defense Department and others and I think the president is slowly leading the country to accept the mandates. I just want to point out that you helped organize a joint statement among nearly 60 medical groups, including the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association, just encouraging every health care facility to require vaccinations for its employees. So so when you say you know that voluntary efforts weren't going to be enough, how did you know? Is it because of that effort or something else? We know that if we need 80% of the population to do something, it won't happen voluntarily, Even in our most just wars that all the country is mobilized for. You still need a draft. Voluntary things will get you so far. And we've seen about 50% of the population. 54% of the population now through a voluntary effort has gotten vaccinated and we're going up. Ever so slowly. You're going to need mandates, something more forceful to persuade all the people we needed to adopt the vaccine actually get it. And I think the President Biden has slowly lead the country to realize that so the president's mandate potentially covers about 100 million Americans, so about a third of the country's total population. What impact do you think this will have on efforts to bring the pandemic under control? First of all, we do know that mandates work when Houston Methodist Hospital mandated it's 26,000 workers. There was a lot of Push back a lot of noise about that. But in the end, only 127 or 37 of 26,000 employees decided they weren't going to get vaccinated. Prefer to quip, so mandates work and that I think is going to make a big difference. As we mentioned the president's executive order also covers private sector employees. Now as you you know, some business organizations and trade groups have already been supportive of this mandate. But already many Republicans are reacting furiously. They've called it a tyranny, and this includes even some people like Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, who is not among those who have downplayed the virus or resisted other measures. He's taken some strong measures. But even he's called this a mistake, saying people in business owners Should make their own decisions about vaccination. So what do you say to that? Well, you know, our founders understood that if every individual made decisions that would lead to something important, nationally important that would lead to chaos. You couldn't have individual freedom and things that affected everyone. They believe in ordered Liberty and ordered Liberty requires certain rules where you're action impacts others that's in this country. Why we have driver's license. Why we say you can't go into a store without shoes and a shirt on so that we actually protect each other. This notion that freedom allows me to do whatever I want is something our founding fathers would totally reject. That is not their understanding of freedom. Freedom is ordered liberty and part of ordered liberty as where we impact other people like infectious diseases. We have to actually all act together, and they would think this is perfectly Consistent with freedom, and I think the president and most of the American population agrees with that. There's going to be a small group that doesn't and that's the people who we actually need. To abide by this mandate. So before we let you go as we are speaking now Cumulatively US Cova deaths are numbering more than 660,000. And with about 1500 people dying per day at the moment. Although the seven day cumulative average seems to be going down. Is that where you thought we'd be by now? No. Um, I had, uh, you know, way back in March, 2020. I said, you know, probably get back to normalcy in November, 2021. And I was considered a real bad pessimist than and what I didn't anticipate was Delta. Uh, think it was hard for anyone to anticipate how infectious and deadly something like Delta could be. And second, I didn't anticipate how resistant A portion of the public would be to vaccination. And now it looks like you know, we're talking about spring 2022 that assumes that we have more mandates. I also might say, Michelle, one of the things I'm very nervous about at the moment is looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas. We remember from 2020. We had a big surge around Thanksgiving and that Declined only a little bit and then a big surge around Christmas because of travel. I am very nervous that with people Wanting to travel more wanting to see family. If we don't get that vaccination rate up very rapidly In the very short period of time, we could have another double surge. That would be, I think, quite Quite problematic for the country with a very high, that's right. And the only way to prevent that, I think is mandating vaccination before any air travel interstate trains interstate buses. You know, Frankly, you need six weeks before Thanksgiving to make that effective because you need two shots and you need two weeks after the second shot to really be fully vaccinated, So we've got to start now. Travel mandates to That was Dr Zeke Emanuel. He is the vice provost for global initiatives at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Emmanuel Thank you so much for joining us today. Sobering but important. Thank you so much. Thank you. My pleasure for being here. Now two masks a key tool in the fight against Covid, and in many places the focus of raging controversy. Arizona band mask mandates in K through 12 schools. Now there's a new lawsuit fighting how that band came to be. Ben Giles from member station Cage's in Phoenix has more. There are things you expect to see in a state budget funding for schools pay for state workers allocations for new programs..

"Vaccine. Mandates are on the rise. Facebook and google are among the latest companies to announce new vaccine requirements for workers. Coming back to the office with the delta variant fuelling a surge in cases a growing number of hospitals universities and municipality say they will now require unvaccinated workers and students to get a covert nineteen shot. Npr's alison opry reports back in april houston methodist hospital announced that vaccines would be mandatory for employees. At the time there was grumbling. There was criticism. Some workers even sued the hospital but in the end hospital. Ceo dr mark boom says most people got on board probably ninety nine point. Three percent of people complied with our policy so we had a whole bunch of people who just rolled up their sleeve. Did the right thing. Can brinkley clean our glad that they did that. Emergency room nurse. Peyton grisham says. She was very hesitant at first. She just didn't like the idea of a mandate honestly. It freaked me out at first there. Is that really big rumor going around that it could affect your fertility but after talking with doctors and other nurses she understood. There was no evidence to support that. Now she's relieved she got the shot because she's protected especially as cases surge. We've seen a bunch of people die from code. We've seen people on ventilators countless people. Dr boom says these deaths are largely preventable through vaccination and mandates. He says work what better way to make sure that we protect our patients than vaccinated ourselves against a terrible disease with a safe and effective vaccine. So i think you're gonna see the calculus shifting quite a bit over the last few days. There's been a flurry of announcements. California announced a vaccine requirement or regular testing for state employees and in new york city. There will be a requirement for teachers firefighters and police. Dr zeke emanuel of the university of pennsylvania says more than fifty medical groups have called for mandatory vaccinations of all healthcare workers given that many remain unvaccinated. We've made vaccines readily available. We've made it free. How cheap can it be. We've educated people. We've worked with community leaders. But the next logical thing is to mandate given that. Vaccinations have stalled a bit at a time. When cases are steadily increasing. A growing list of universities. Say they'll make cova. Vaccinations mandatory this fall with exemptions for religious or medical reasons cal state had said it would wait for full. Fda approval of the vaccines but announced this week. They'll go ahead with the requirement now amid the delta surge at nursing homes around the country about sixty two percent of employees have been vaccinated and outbreaks of kobe have been linked to unvaccinated workers. Katie smith sloan is ceo of leading age a trade group that represents nonprofit providers including nursing homes. She is strongly encouraging all of them to consider vaccine. Mandates for staff given vaccination rates. Have trailed off. The numbers do seem to be stalled. And we don't want a repeat of what we've been through so now is the time to take some extra precautions. New data from israel published in the new england journal of medicine finds vaccinated. Healthcare workers have been highly protected against breakthrough infections. And that's reassuring says registered nurse crystal caversham. She works at wellspring retirement community in greensboro north carolina where a mandate was announced. This week. i do think the mandate is a good idea. I mean i think people feel safer. There will be exemptions for those with valid medical a religious reasons otherwise employees have until the end of october to get.

"You're listening to shortwave from npr. Here in the us we are in the midst of a new surge of corona virus cases hospitalizations and deaths the surge in part is due to a very transmissible strain of the corona virus. We know now that the highly contagious delta variant now accounts for more than eighty percent of cova cases in this country and it appears to spread about twice as fast as the original strain. The cdc now says everyone vaccinated or not should wear masks indoors in public spaces. If they're in an area where. The corona virus cases are surging joining me. Today is science desk. Correspondent alison aubrey. Hi allison hey there mattie great to be here talk to me a little bit about this guidance back in may the cdc said that fully vaccinated people could take off their masks in most settings but two things have changed. Vaccination rates have slowed down and the delta variant keep spreading and allison public health experts. That you've been talking to have been advocating for this change right. Yes absolutely many thought. The decision to lift the mast mandate in this spring wasn't well thought out and the cdc has been too slow to respond as cases creep back up. Here's dr zeke. Emanuel of the university of pennsylvania shady position on masks has been behind the eight ball almost every step of the way and the announcement is seen by some people as the agency. Kind of playing catch up. After weeks of experts saying hey cases arising many people remain unvaccinated.

"Penalties including possible removal and today new york city mayor build a blasio announced the city's roughly three hundred and forty thousand municipal workers will be required to be vaccinated by the time schools reopened in mid september or fell face. Weekly testing joining us. Dr zeke emanuel. Who is a member of president. Biden's covert nineteen advisory board. He is currently a vice provost global initiatives at the university of pennsylvania. Doctor emmanuel why most of us are just shocked that it would come to the point where you have to advocate for medical workers to be fully vaccinated. How did it come to this. Well i think medical workers reflect the the country and I agree with you you know. It's pretty shocking. That healthcare workers wouldn't be the first in line every person in healthcare wouldn't get vaccinated this. I've been calling for a mandate ever since april fourteenth when i wrote an op ed in the new york times. I think we need to get all the healthcare verse vaccinated they should not infect other people putting them at danger and unfortunately because of disinformation because of access problems of people have just stopped getting vaccinated and we need to get them over that little barrier they have and get them vaccinated so the american hospital association saying that only nine percent of hospitals have fully vaccinated. Personnel is rather frightening. Is there any way for us to know if the hospital we might choose to use or be taken to emergency has fully vaccinated personnel now. There really isn't I am proud to say that. My university of pennsylvania health system which is a five hospital healthcare system has mandated that all workers get vaccinated. But this came home to me. Very vividly frankly lawrence when my daughter was delivering a baby and she said i don't want to question whether that nurse or the person coming in leaning the floor as been vaccinated assume that they're vaccinated because they're working in a healthcare setting and i totally agree with her and i don't think any of us should have to doubt or question or worry that we might get cova from a healthcare worker. Have you personally had any conversations with an unvaccinated healthcare worker or has your group come up with any any reports about what they say about why. They're not vaccinated. Well i think a lot of it is local lawrence. I think a lot depends upon the local dynamics on a floor or the local dynamics in a department of a hospital. And typically what you're hearing over and over is if the leader of that group says They're not for it. for whatever. Reason political reason the disinformation. They might have gotten that tends to influence other people around them. A lot of this like the military like sports teams. A lot of this is local but the thing that i think we don't get who live outside. The medical community is what we think of nurses as medical scientists we think of physicians as medical scientists. We think of everyone working with the medicine in the hospitals as medical scientists. Sure there are people in maintenance who aren't there are executives in hospitals who aren't medical scientists but it's the people who are involved in working with medical science every day deciding. Exactly how much of a drop of this particular medicine can this patient take. It's it's people in that section of that astound us that they are not vaccinated. Look healthcare is not hermetically sealed from the larger society. And i think that's what you're Sort of perplexed by atten. Just isn't the same kind of disinformation that happens in society. An happen in medicine and unfortunately that has happened extensively on this. You know vaccines used to be seen as a godsend saving us from serious illness. I remember when i took my polio sugarcubes in school and the relief parents have. But now we've made vaccination this ideological badge of the in group out group and that's really what the source of the problem is. We should not make this key lifesaving element a badge of you're a member of our tribe or you're against our tribe and that's been a the most serious problem here that this is not about keeping people healthy. It's about tribe. Membership doctors zeke emanuel. Thank you for all of your earnest efforts and guidance throughout this pandemic really appreciate it. Thank you lawrence. Thanks for having me.

Dr zeke emanuel organized a joint statement released today by fifty eight major medical Organizations calling for all healthcare workers to be required to be vaccinated against cova nineteen. Their statement said our healthcare organizations and societies advocate that all healthcare and long-term care employers require their workers to receive the cova. Nineteen vaccine this is the logical fulfillment of the ethical commitment of all healthcare workers to put patients as well as residents of long term care facilities. I and take all steps necessary to ensure their health and wellbeing nationwide only fifty eight point seven percent of nursing home employees have been fully vaccinated according to the centers for disease control and fewer than nine percent of hospitals have required their workers to get vaccinated according to the american hospital association today. The department of veterans affairs became the first federal agency to require some of its employees to get vaccinated. The department of veterans affairs will require one hundred fifteen thousand of its frontline healthcare workers to get vaccinated in the next two months.

"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Audie Cornish. Once again, the affordable Care act remains in place. The U. S. Supreme Court throughout the most recent challenge to the Affordable Care Act today, saying plaintiffs in the case lacked standing. It's the third Supreme Court challenge and victory for the CIA. Joining us now is Dr Zeke Emanuel, who was an architect of the law in the Obama administration. Welcome to the program. Great to be with you, Audie. On Twitter. Barack Obama, former president was basically saying that the affordable care act is here to stay. What's your reaction to this ruling, which was 7 to 2 in favor of the Well from the health care system perspective, the Affordable Care Act has been the structure under which hospitals and doctors and insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies have been operating for the last decade. It's really only in the judiciary where there's been this debate about is it the law of the land, and I think the Supreme Court swatted away this case and said, Stop. Annoying us With these cases, it's the law of the land and let's move on. I want to ask you about some of the goals of the going forward, of course, affordable care. Um During the pandemic, lawmakers have increased funding for Americans, part of the kind of covid relief packages those are going to last for about two years. Do you think you can make them permanent politically? Do you think that's possible? I think it's possible. I think it's a very expensive to increase the subsidies in the exchanges, which is the main thing that's been done. Um, but people shouldn't get used to that. That to you as a kind of very specific relief effort. Yes, I think there are other things we can do to expand coverage. There are 17 million Americans who are eligible for Medicaid and or the exchanges who aren't enroll. Raising the subsidies is one way to get some of them in. But many of them don't even know how cheap plans are available in the exchanges. Many people don't know that they are eligible for Medicaid or just don't have the wherewithal to navigate the complexities of applying. Um, I think getting those 17 million who are eligible today but not enrolled is critical for getting us the country above 95 96%. Of the population covered by some kind of health insurance. Can I follow up on that gap? There are 12 states that refused to expand Medicaid right? That was after some legal challenge that allowed them to do so. So that's some four million people. I assume it's out in the number you're talking about who could have been covered, but are not because their states have decided not to take part in the program. And I know that there's been some effort at legislation or kind of ballot initiatives. But have those tools been exhausted? I mean, are these are there people in these 12 states who aren't going to get the advantage of this benefit? First of all that that 3 to 4 million people who could be eligible if states expanded. Medicaid is in addition to the 17 million who are eligible today throughout the country and through the States that did expand Medicaid. So that would be an additional the numbers a little worse than we thought. Well, yes, the numbers a little worse. I mean, Congress has tried a lot of things to, uh, increase the appeal here proposed a lot of things. The initial bill, the Affordable Care act is very appealing. From a financial standpoint, this isn't about money. This is about ideology. All the analyses show that states are better off financially if they expand Medicaid money comes into The states. The states actually reduce their expenditures for uncovered people. The hospitals actually make more money. So this again isn't a financial decision by states. This is purely ideological were opposed to the We're not going to partake. And of course, it hurts the poorest people in America and disproportionately. Minorities trying to increase the appeal, adding more money doing other things, I think is, uh, not probably not going to get these states to change what has Made these states change is putting the question of expanding Medicaid on the ballot. Every state that has had it on the ballot. Deep. Red states like Idaho, Nebraska, Utah have passed this so people want the expanded Medicaid. It's just Republican politicians who don't want it. In just our last moment. There are still people who can face high out of pocket costs. Some of that was alleviated with the subsidies, but this is still a problem. Is there going to be a formal policy approach to this? I think affordability is going to come back as a very, very big issue, even for the insured people in America. Whether it's surprise medical building high drug costs, high hospital costs and I think people are very, very worried about this. When Covid is under control towards the end of this year, I think affordability is going to rear its head and become a dominant Issue for the American public, and I do think we need to tackle that There are a variety of things that have to be done from, you know, limiting drug squash to changing how we pay hospitals and doctors to lower the costs and the impact on people. So I do think it's a major unsolved issue that has to get some attention. That's Dr Zeke Emanuel, currently vice provost for the University of Pennsylvania and writer of the Affordable Care Act Law. Thanks so much for your time, thank you. Audie. At the White House today, President Biden signed a bill that establishes June 19th as a federal holiday. Juneteenth as the day is known, celebrates the end of slavery in the US Can feel the power of this day and learned Celebrate progress and grapple with the distance. We've come, but the decisions we have to travel gym As NPR's Adrian Florido reports, the day has gained wider recognition since the nation's recent movements for racial justice President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing slaves in secessionist states on January 1st 18 63. Across the Confederacy. Many slave owners kept this news from their slaves for more than two years. On June, 19th 18 65 Union general wrote into Galveston, Texas, to announce the end of the Civil war and of slavery. Here's Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, reading that general's announcement on the House floor yesterday. The people of Texas are informed. In accordance with a proclamation from the executive of the United States. All slaves are free. Black Americans started celebrating the anniversary of that date the very next year and they have ever since with parades, festivals and prayer gatherings. Patricia Davis researches African American cultural memory at Northeastern University and says these communities celebrations have been an important way for black Americans to keep the memory of Juneteenth alive. That's the way most people get their history and particularly history that is not friendly to the idea. Of American exceptionalism. The holiday only began enjoying broader public recognition recently amid the nation's increased attention to issues of racial justice, police killings of black people and conservative efforts to limit how it races taught in public schools..

"Be the guidance from the cdc the guidance Even not the way you said. It is a little cautious. These vaccines are working so well but there's nothing wrong with being a little cautious right now win in this transition. Some of us are vaccinated. Some of us are not cases arising in some parts of the country. It's not another's we are in a true transition zone right and that's why our messaging is so weird right now because we're trying to say that through thirty one point. Four percent of americans go ahead and travel. You agree and then and then tell everyone else's stay home so it's very confusing. I would say that if you're vaccinated feel very safe. Definitely wear masks and distance on the plane and use that good ventilation in the plane because you want to be respectful of others just pure social norm being respectful. And if you have to travel if you're unvaccinated use your safety precautions. There is ventilation on the plane. Use your strong mask if you need to travel if you're unvaccinated dr. Monica gandhi with the university of california san francisco as more americans get vaccinated and travel. There's a growing debate about whether or how to verify who has had shot. We will continue to vaccinate more texans and protect public health and we will do so without treading on texans personal freedoms this week texas governor greg abbott issued an executive order banning state agencies and other taxpayer funded organizations from requiring proof of vaccination to do something like say enter a government building. Government should not require any texan to show proof of vaccination and reveal private health information just to go about their daily lives but the texas government does do that. State's legislature requires proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter the senate floor or committee. Brooms also this past week. The republican governor of florida rhonda santa's signed a similar ban on vaccine certification by the government and extended it to businesses. It's completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you The requirement that you show proof vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society florida's ban is specific to covid nineteen vaccines used under the food and drug administration's emergency use authorization. The thing is all of them are of course florida. Public schools like others across the country do require ordinary vaccines for children colleges across the country due to and some including brown cornell and rutgers have already said they'll add the covid vaccine to the list of required immunizations soon. What's more there are growing signs. That businesses are preparing for vaccine certification. Some walmart jet blue are testing out apps that allow customers to confirm their vaccine status. New york state just rolled out one as well. It's basically a smartphone app that allows you to share your status if you need to do so in order to enter a stadium or pretend to wedding in the public debate over these apps they come to be known as vaccine passports. Really not a passport to necessarily cross borders. It's a certification. It's providing information about what your status is in some area. Dr zeke emanuel is a professor of medical ethics at the university of pennsylvania and a former member of president. Biden's transition cove nineteen advisory board. He told npr. There's a right way and a wrong way to do vaccine certification and he also spoke to elsa chang exactly why do you think that they are a good idea this certification of your vaccine status. Well we're all under substantial restrictions now because of covert if you have a passport that allows us to get to more normal behavior and in public health. There's a principle that you should use the least restrictive method necessary and this allows us to say those people who've gotten vaccinated. You don't have to adhere to certain restrictions because you are now immune not likely to pass transmit the virus. Well let's talk about some of the ways that people have pushed back on this idea. A couple of republican governors have already signed executive orders limiting or outright prohibiting the use of these so-called vaccine passports and critics say that they have privacy concerns. I completely sympathetic to two major objections. One is. I won't say privacy only but it's a constellation of issues that you want this information limited and you want to control the information. You don't want some big tech company like facebook to commercialize it or to merge it with other information and then use it for their advantage but not necessarily for your health and second. I think there are legitimate concerns. Does everyone have equal access to the vaccine. Are we being fair in. Who's guiding the vaccine. Who's getting the passport or as we've seen there's disproportionate availability of the vaccine in certain communities. I think those are two quite legitimate concerns. The white house has already indicated that it is disinclined to mandate their use. So how useful would these vaccine passports. Be an opening things up. If there were no mandate ultimately the federal government may be disinclined to mandate them. But that doesn't mean that many others won't be inclined to mandate them. I think there are inevitable. If only the initial use case scenario will be international travel. Maybe even some domestic travel. And i think from there. It's going to snowball.

BlackRocks Larry Fink; Johnson & Johnsons Vaccine Study

"Johnson and Johnson is temporarily paused. It's cove nineteen vaccine clinical trials due to an unexplained illness in a study participant the development first reported by stat news notes that the study is not under a clinical hold that's the more serious hold and it's not immediately apparent whether the volunteer received the actual treatment. Or a placebo. That would be key difference J. J. says adverse events. Events like illnesses aren't expected part of clinical studies but if they do find out, yeah, it was the placebo. Well then. It goes without saying. Apparently. It's not always immediately available for that but I read through that a lot because it it seems to me like you'd be able to figure out pretty quickly it to shutting down your entire thing if this was somebody who got the placebo. That's why it's called the blind, a double blind study or whatever you want people knowing who? Didn't. I guess somebody knows I hope so or else you get. Jeez. Yeah. Wow maybe. Striking, about this, this is now the second one of these that we've had AstraZeneca's you know put a hold of briefly internationally on their efforts but by the way that effort I believe is not ongoing right now in the United States. So if for example, there was a hold on the Astra Zeneca project in the United States and they separate hold now on the Johnson and Johnson one minute. It's not this is not a whole. Holistic. Pause. Right. A pause, but there was a I the point I was trying to make was there was a pause if you WANNA use the word pause and hold I know there now there's a distinction between the two, but there was also a pause on the Astra Zeneca program in the United States if they're also pause on the Johnson and Johnson Program in the United. States then you're then you're now down to Pfizer and Madonna as the most promising. The only other two that are even ongoing when you think about the time line for when these things become available, it could become more challenged. I I would. I would wait until. You know. That's not like you to find the negative part of it, but I mean I. Came back. It's not I hadn't realized I. Don't know if you want. I not. Not a spinal thing like the other one I understand that. Thousands of people in all these trials and you're talking about two cases that you don't even know we're going to result in Holt. So it made push it out to ask what if the dates maybe bad possibly, what possible what have you imagined that would have you imagined that the Astra Zeneca program would be running everywhere else in the in the world except the United States right now I I haven't thought realized that tried to mad and haven't tried Ed Needs is this means it's going to be the Astra Zeneca program to become available here at the United States in any kind of similar time. That's the point. For more on the news from Johnson and Johnson. Let's bring in Dr Zeke Emanuel. He of course, the former White House health policy advisor under President Obama he's now vice provost of global initiatives at the university, of Pennsylvania, and he's currently an informal adviser to the Joe Biden campaign and the Covid nineteen and Vaccine Recommendations. By the way he just co authored a research letter for the Journal of the American Medical Association comparing us, covert fatalities to those of some larger OECD countries to talk about that in just a moment. But Dr Manual let's start with this news from J. and J. Does this concern you? Well, any time? There's a serious adverse event it has to concern you but I think as. J. F. O. explained. You know you have to let the process evolve you have to actually examine carefully what the? Situation is the adverse event is related to the vaccine or placebo. Related to something else a pre existing condition, and so those are exactly the kind of questions at. Researchers will look at and try to uncover in the next few hours. And then we'll find out more. If it's in the you know arm with of the vaccine it does raise serious questions because you only have a few thousand people in the study like this one adverse event is serious especially when you're considering a vaccine that you're going to roll out to tens, hundreds of millions of people maybe even billions of people. So you know. That's the that's the ultimate concern, and this is actually standard process. For every research study you get a serious adverse event, you investigate it, it happens all the time. It's just the world's not always watching. So closely to see what the developers are excited worth pointing out that the the CFO of Johnson and Johnson also pointed out, they don't know any of these answers because they have turned it all over to independent investigators, and that is what kind of beefs up the credibility issues around those. The CFO himself has no idea even though this was thirty six hours ago whether this was in a placebo patients someone who actually received the vaccine will continue. That they've been carefully collaborating with the NIH on this trial and you know that I also think should give the American public. Some reassurance at this is going to be done thoroughly and to the highest scientific standards might detrimental. Let's talk about that paper that you wrote. You found that the United States did have higher death rates from Cova. I think the big question is was that something that was taking place very early on in the pandemic and that has improved since then and what have you found? Tell us a little bit about your study. So what we did is to take the United States mortality from it. Compare it to eighteen. Countries a high income countries like Japan and Australia Canada and Jeremy and also the countries that were hit very hard at the start Italy Spain, France and other. European countries. And we looked at the whole period and compared to most countries We actually the United States has done poorly even if you include the early phase but if you exclude the early phase March and April when every many countries were overwhelmed especially places like Italy and Spain. And you exclude them and then look say may after countries have experienced, got their arms around how to manage this of virus. I turns out the United States at extraordinarily bad even compared to places like Italy a we had from. May Tenth. To today roughly ninety thousand more deaths and we should have had we followed Italy scores ninety thousand Americans who died needlessly. As I have pointed out before Italy didn't have anything special or different in terms of Treatment Vaccines Diagnostics compared to the United States, what they have is better public health. Implementation of the public health measures, and that actually is a could could have saved tens of thousands of lives in the United States. and. We can see that when we compare our experience to those of other countries. What are you talking about in terms of reactions? You mean people wearing masks, you mean contact tracing do you mean testing that's put out? How much this you think falls on the healthcare system. As a fault and how much of it rely falls on public policy reaction to it. How much falls on just citizens following the rules well. It's all of it, but it's mainly the public health response in public policy. It really is implementing those public health measures, countrywide with fidelity. And then slowly reopening. So you do have to have social distancing you do have to have a trying not to go indoors. You do have to have having crowds less than twenty. You do have to have wearing face masks doing hand hygiene and focusing your testing and contact tracing capacity first of all, building it up, which we never did successfully in this country, and then focusing it on hot spots because we know this virus breaks out. A super spreading events it's not the usual person to person to person you know eighty to ninety percent of people will not pass this to anyone. Ten percent to twenty percent of people 'cause eighty percent of the infection. So you have to be able to identify them and quickly suppressed that we never built up that capacity the federal government under president trump punted it to the states and then states did very different. Things had Florida right now as rapidly opened up restaurants and many other things and a lot of us are expecting super spreading situations in Florida. We've seen. Places that kind of ignored? This up and down the Midwest saying Oh it's not here. Now having very high rates of cases we've had thirty one states that are going up and not down which is a very worrisome situation going into the fall and we're going to move inside. It's going to much easier to pass this virus along. And a lot of us are seriously worried about the consequences hazy I'm trying to do whether that was apples to apple. So when in May in the United. States. We got we got a later start right in Europe and by May they're already seeing. Progress over in Europe did you adjust I'm not sure whether you adjusted for that because we were right at the height. Close to it in May still and and they were on the downside in. Europe is. Standardized that in a way or wrong on that or or because we were going to have a lot more. A lot more deaths in in May than they would because they they were they got it a lot earlier there. Then I have a follow up question to. That is a super sophisticated question and you're one hundred percent, right we started a week or two later than European countries like Italy France But if you make that adjustment, it makes a slight difference not. Difference Yeah. So it's not it's not. Our peak was in May and their peak was in the end of March early April. In fact, our peak was earlier in April. and. By, by May tenth, we should have gotten our arms around and then also in our paper, we look at June seven and subsequently, and even if you look at June seven, we have tens of thousands of more debts that other countries like again the Netherlands France Spain. Italy. So we've done poorly, and by the way our data collection goes through mid September. So we've done poorly even with the August blip because of the. Spring summer vacations in many European countries where we know people like Silvio Berlusconi in Italy partied and ignored all the recommendations and got cove it So we have done badly even after even if you include the fact that we got this about a week or two later compared to other countries that was a very good question typically on the high level statisticians or clinical researchers ask that kind of. I don't with. Feeling so good about myself. All of a sudden the problems we've had here the number of cases the number of that's a number of hospitalizations was not inevitable. It was a result of bad public health measures being implemented or not implemented as the case may be and you can see this repeatedly states seeming seeming to learn nothing like Florida rushing to open up restaurants bars when we should be slowly slowly be opening. Detrimental very quickly. It I guess we do have time for one more question how how much of an impact do you think a Americans healthiness versus other countries have how do we rate just in terms of underlying co morbidity is that might be there well, it's a mixed bag for one thing our population skews younger than most European countries, they have a much older population more people over sixty five. And we know that older people tend to die from this disease unfortunately we have more co morbidity in terms of diabetes in terms of obesity, but they have more Komo British in terms of lung problems because they have higher smoking rates in the United States Net Nan. It probably comes out in the wash but we're going to have to do some more. Rigorous Studies of the CO morbidity situation and the age distribution of the population. But I don't think it's GonNa be tens of thousands of deaths. It might be a few thousand maybe even ten thousand but the overwhelming response effect that about half of our deaths or unnecessary that's not gonNA come out because of small differences in co morbidity between our countries and their country. Zeke thank you very much for your time. It's really great talking to you. Thank you very sophisticated questions this morning.
