What Else Does Admiral Giroir and Others Know?

"Sources of Intel that suggests that China has an extensive biological weapons program. And that it's integrated between state laboratories, academia and private industry. So it is not crazy as people, um suggest, like Dr Collins suggested that this could have been part of a bio program. You know, guys, I'm sorry, but we could have used you a long time ago. Really? I'm not trying to step on your toes. I'm glad you're saying something. It's not personal. No disrespect intended. I mean that. But, man, where were you early? What were you afraid of? The media calling you a conspiracy Theories? They're a joke. They call everybody a conspiracy theorists that doesn't tout the liberal line. Why do you care? You know, it's easy to speak up when everybody in the media is going to celebrate you on the left. It's easy. I don't like trump hair. You get a big up in the Washington Post celebrating your bravery. You know what's difficult being a real renegade being a real misfit. Said that 1000 times and speeches I give publicly be proud of yourself. If you're a conservative, you're the real renegades. Right now. You're the ideological misfits. You're the land of misfit toys. And I mean that in a proud, dignified way that you're the ones walking around saying You know what? Wearing the badge of truth on your chest while all these idiots were telling you, you were the liar. Where the renegades right now we are where the truth tellers.

Admiral Brett Giroir Says China Has an Extensive Bioweapons Program

"Well, here's what's weird because this was a guy who was in the room for all these conversations to here's Admiral Brett Dirar. Admiral Gerard was in the room. For these conversations. And Admiral Gerard was on Fox News recently. And he basically said, Listen, I'm free to speak. Now. I don't work for the government anymore, and I'm kind of curious about this whole like Buy a weapon thing. It's kind of a paraphrase of what he said. But Check this out. It is not outrageous to hypothesize. You say that the virus could have been part of an offensive bioweapons program and leaked out accidentally. Well, that seems to be discounted by Dr Collins and other people. I think the most likely explanation is that it was gain of function. Mutation work, it leaked out. But unlike the United States, the United States does not have an offensive biological weapons program. There are multiple open sources of Intel that suggests that China has an extensive biological weapons program. And that is integrated between state laboratories, academia and private industry. So it is not crazy as people, um suggest, like Dr Collins suggested that this could have been part of a bio program. Oh, okay, guys, ladies. This guy Admiral Dirar was in the room. He was on the coronavirus task Force. You think he's just spouting off on Fox? Because he's bored on the weekend. He's sitting around watching episodes of food that built America and he's like, Gosh, have freed Ole stories. Great. I'm really bored. Let me go on Fox and just say they could have had a bioweapons program and it could have been a

Navigating the Complexities of Black Indigenous Identity

"Black and indigenous communities share similar struggles as marginalized people on turtle island that combined. History can be quite complicated. My next guest has dedicated much of his work. As an academic to thinking about these connections robert keith collins is an expert on black indigenous interactions. He's an associate professor of american indian studies at san francisco state university. He's african american and choctaw. And he's here to tell us about a history. Many people know very little about welcome to the show dr collins. Thank you very much for having me. So let's start at the beginning. What is the beginning of indigenous black history. That's a fantastic question. And actually we owe a lot of our understanding about it to a canadian scholar. Alexander francis chamberlain france as in in eighteen. Ninety one wrote one of the most comprehensive analysis that we have today and that was african americans and what we find in that study is that this is actually a history. His later colleague would refer to as the third line of colonization. We've talked about a european and native colonization. We talk about european and african colonization. We seldom talk about american. Interactions during the colonization and this is a history that brings that back to live where we actually see cultural exchanges between people that are taking place within sovereign native communities as well as nations and families we also see interactions taking place especially for like in the united states among the five civilized tribes chuck.

"Dr collins. It is such a pleasure to have you want. how are you today. i am just fine. It is great to be on your show with you bobby. I'm a big fan so terrific to have a chance to talk about whatever we're going to talk about. You are the director of the national institutes of health. What does that mean. that means. I'm the guy who oversees our nation's investments in biomedical research. The national institutes of health is the way in which discoveries get made and clinical advances occur. And it's my job to all of this in a forty two billion dollar a year medical research investment which for the past year has been all about covid. Nineteen as you might guess and we've made some real progress with vaccines and what this way. I'm glad to have you on because this is the guy to ask about vaccines. I've had one shot. Eddie's got shot lunchboxes got a shot. Now we're the inside the two shots system here because we didn't johnson and johnson. So can you explain to me what the difference is in these three vaccines and if we should look for any of them specifically well let me first say they are all wonderfully effective and safe vaccine so the bottom line is you should take what everyone gets offered to you as soon as it gets off. Because this is how we're going to get past is terrible. Ovid nineteen pandemic. Yeah the pfizer moderna vaccine. Those are two shots they're based on something called messenger. Aren a the johnson and johnson is one shot and is based on adenoviruses approach. But they've all been tested in trials of at least thirty thousand people each and been shown to have safety. Records are really quite impressive with no hint of any real troubles there and a highly effective way protecting you against getting sick or dying of covid nineteen and that's what we are all waiting for and now it is here so i know people may be a little resistant about wait. A minute debate rush. Did they go too fast. I'm the guy who's been overseeing all of this at the nih libya sure you. I've never seen anything done better than this. In terms of the way in which the trials were conducted in strength therefore the conclusions about being safe and effective so. Roll up your sleeves america. It's time to get past this pandemic

"That's 808 590957. Dr Collins or just before the break. We were talking about the vaccine when we can get it when it's gonna be available. Obviously, nobody knows right now. But the other problem is you were mentioning that out of a group of 50 people. 15 people were the only ones that we're willing to take. And what is the fear? Well, I think in general, certain populations have a fear of vaccines, period. So there's a whole anti vaccination movement. You know the anti Vaxxers and then people think that there's just bad. Whatever is put in the vaccine is unhealthy. Whether it's the Delia went meeting the solution in which the vaccine sitting has some unhealthy products. Granted, there's been a history of mercury being put in vaccines as a preservative. So it's not unwarranted. Fear the pharma, you know, uh, system has always done something that makes us question the safety of our products. But now you know the preservatives, resort preserves, but the way the vaccines have created, delivered her safer and cleaner and really shouldn't Cause a problem and unfortunately with covert, I don't know that we have that made choices. You kind of got to get the vaccine. Well, I think that you know, Unfortunately, because of the news in the sensationalism of one person dies around about the time that they get a vaccine. There's this, you know? Well, it had to be about the vaccine, and the vaccine's not safe of two people die or three people died in a week or two weeks after they get the vaccine. There's this connection that all the vaccines bad. And that's just, you know, hyping sensationalism. But like we said, I'm getting the visor vaccine on Saturday and I've heard from a few people don't get it because people are dying from it. But really, if they've administered 20 million doses already and only maybe I'm gonna say on Lee with no disrespect to the people that died, 2025 people. Died. We're really looking at 0.1%. Death, which is a very low rate. When you look at populations, especially the death rate from Covina, which is 0.5% in the six population, so It's it's exponentially safer to get the vaccine than to get Cove it. What do we know about some of the side effects or more? So how long it takes or some of these side effects to manifest? Well, I think most people are getting side effects with the second dose. So the first dose is not his potent on second dose is more potent. Maybe it's just your bis response is greater because it's already seen a little bit of The protein that piece of the spike protein that generates a neutralizing antibody. So It could be anywhere from muscle sort. I mean, nothing to muscle soreness, chills aching. I've had some patients get some gastrointestinal upset, just like you might think would happen with the virus. I've had some patients get some brief episodes of shortness of breath, just like you might have with the virus. That doesn't mean the vaccine causes symptoms that just your response to the Vaccination generated those symptoms. You're still going to recover from those and not have the viral long term effects. So do you think the fear is because maybe it hasn't been tested as long as a zloty as some of the other bank scenes have been tested because they move this forward on an emergency basis, So they get the you know the vaccine out there, or do you think it's just the people don't understand. It's not a dead or alive virus that get injected with bullets that struck that was a great question. So let's talk with, you know what did it take to get this vaccine produced so The reality is is that technology has changed. And so what took 15 years 25 years ago or seven or eight years 25 years ago. Now they've got the ability to create the protein, the part of the virus that generates an immune response. On a computer model that can be then created in a lab in one day. So all of the Knowledge and that that had to be done for years and years and years now really has done in one day and because there were so many cases of of Kobe it around the world. The virus, vaccinate the vaccines, especially my journey was able to be tested, You know, so they had hundreds of thousands of cases that were they were tested against. Statistically, that's a very powerful study. So when you've been test 10 2040 50, you know they had 90,000 people. So even though it happened quickly because the virus was so come and they were able to test enough people that the study had a lot of strength. And when I mean statistical strength, so A lot of you did that's all done. The whole time is made that moot time and the way this virus spread allowed us to say we have enough data to really know what this Vaccination does I think people are afraid of everything. They're afraid of Kovar. They're afraid of the vaccine. And now the latest thing for them to be afraid of us. They're hearing the word variant. You know, in England, they've got a very and suddenly that broke hired another hearing about this fate, right? Surrounded. You hear about this? Yeah. The variant of the vaccine and And I think people are thinking that Okay, now it's morphed into some other hyper, You know, covert strain that does this vaccine work on the variants? What's your answer to that? Well. I don't know. Exactly. But I'm going toe make a supposition. Which is these variants really don't change the disease course they might be Maura, less virulent. But the way that this virus works the way that the virus attach is to our body and the way that the vaccines attack the way the virus attach is to our body Eisen being changed by these variants so that the vaccine should still be effective. I think that vaccination to.

But the us has not for now. New york governor. Andrew cuomo has advocated a travel ban.

Their one hundred twenty countries require the uk travelers that received a negative test before they get on the plane in the uk. One hundred twenty countries and the united states has done nothing. There are three airlines that come from the uk a fly into our airports. Our airports are run by the port authority of new york new jersey the three airlines british airways delta and virgin atlantic.

I am asking those airlines to add new york state to the list of the one hundred twenty countries that require tests before the flights leave the uk. The head of the us government's operation warp speed. Said monday that more information is needed before knowing for sure if the uk strain is more transmissible he said quote. I think scientifically to date. There is no hard evidence that this virus is actually more transmissible on quote. He added that there is clear evidence that there is more of it in the population. Us surgeon general. Dr jerome adams said the. Us needs more information viruses. Mutate what they did to which of the virus which causes covid nineteen nine mutated dozen times already this year. That doesn't mean it's more dangerous. It doesn't mean it's more contagious. So we're working with the whol. Working with the cdc working with the uk to figure out Whether this new strain of virus going to behave any differently. But i just talked to dr collins who heads the national institutes of health so far. Nothing looks like it's going to change the effectiveness of this vaccine Number one and number two even if there is a mutation at some point which changes the effectiveness. It'll be just like the seasonal flu vaccine that we know how to tweak.

"Republican lamar alexander's retiring after serving three terms in the senate. He's also been the secretary of education and two term governor of tennessee. In addition he twice ran for the republican presidential nomination coming pretty close in nineteen ninety six unlike many of his colleagues. Alexandra is not repeating president. Trump's false claims the twenty twenty election was rigged against so. I caught up with him. This week and asked about mr trump's post-election behavior. Let me start with a simple question. Any doubt who won. The presidential election won't shouldn't be after monday. The states have counted certified. Their votes courts resolve the disputes. It looks very much like the electors. Vote for joe biden and when they do I hope that he puts the country. First i mean the president That he takes pride in his. Considerable accomplishments congratulates the president-elect and helps him get off to a good start especially in the middle of this pandemic. we need to not lose one day in the transition. Getting the out to everybody. Who needs it you know. It's been thirty seven days since the election thirty three days since it was called six days since we know that enough pledged electors have been certified for the election and yet on wednesday. The president of the united states tweeted hashtag overturn. Is it about time for this to stop well monday. It should stop. i mean remember. It's not unprecedented to contest election. Al gore took thirty seven days. I believe to contest Before he finally Conceited and then. He made the best speech of his life respecting the result. Which is what. I hope the president will do the electors vote for joe biden on monday which it is apparent. They they will what. I don't understand the context though of trying to compare to the sal gore. That was an incredibly close election. The only reason there's a perception that this was closer than some others is the order with win with which we counted the vote. So if the comparison to two thousand really fair or is it creating a false strowman. Well it's it's not you're exactly right. It's not the same circumstance. But what is what is a good good comparison. Is that al gore conceded then unconsented then after thirty seven days. He could he conceded again but the important thing was he made the best speech of his life. He went on television. He said the courts have decided. I respect the result. Let's put the country first That's what i hope. The president will do if as expected on monday. The electors vote for joe biden. Everything up before. Monday is really a projection. We've gotten used to the media deciding shortly on election night. My first race for governor. I i can see within two hours but the votes had been counted. I think it's fair to allow candidates to contest elections if they want to if they have evidence. But when it's over these to be over all right. I don't remember the comments for years ago on. Hillary clinton should get more time and all of this stuff. I mean it looks like the double and looks like adult day. What about stacey. Abrams concession speech. Have you found it yet i understand. Look i understand. That was two years ago she more. She was defeated by the governor. And why don't you sit here. Talking about trump i look. I'm not here to talk about stacey. Abrams not covering that race. And that's decision. And i think that that is something that she deserves to be asked but the question i have is this is. This is how the republican party seems to define itself in the trump era. Which is anything. The president does that is unseemly breaks norm instead of criticizing it. You just now. You're just like well. What about what about what about this. That doesn't dismiss the president's behavior does it. but i would think if you're going to talk about donald trump all the time. You might mention stacey. Abrams once i mean after all georgia is where mentioned a hand. It has it has been. I'm not here to dimension to well. Well why aren't you. Why aren't you. whoa. I have consistently said that if the president loses and it appears that he will when the electors vote. He should put the country. I take pride. This accomplishments congratulate joe biden. And help him off to a good start especially because of the vaccine. I think that's a very a proper way to think about that. And and it respects the processes we have in fact that should help increase the validity of the election. If all of those who think that it's not valid see that states have counted recounted their votes that the courts resolve disputes. That the electors of all voted. It's very hard to say. The joe biden is not validly elected after monday of all that happens. Here's the thing. Are you aware of all of these threats against election officials of some of them are. You've you've probably seen the comments by the the gentleman from georgia. The republican official who said these threats Physical harm threats of physical harm. The stopped the secretary state in michigan had people outside our house. Do you not hold the president responsible for creating that can for sorting creating the conditions. That's encouraging this behavior chuck. I'm i've said what i have to say about this. I think to threaten shen. Officials is a deplorable thing to do. I think the most important thing for our country as george washington said when it was founded is not the first election but the sex second election the orderly transfer of power. I think anything that detracts from that is not good for our democracy and people can make their own judgment about where the president's Acting appropriately or not. I think he has a right to take his legal cases. I don't think is lawyers our right to go to court with specious lawsuits with no evidence. And i think the process say it's over on monday of the electoral vote for joe biden. Which i expect that they will. You'll laugh at this. But i found this op ed. You wrote in december of nineteen ninety-six. After bob dole's lots and here's a it was the lead of your op. Ed senator our national agenda sounds like a demolition derby abolish the department.

Senator coons can you defend congress from that criticism chuck. Thanks for a chance to be on again i. I'm just going to celebrate the combination of two things that nine months ago. Senate passed unanimously. The cares act which provided about two point two trillion dollars in support to the american people and funded much of that great work at nih and it private firms like pfizer that is delivering these vaccines to the american people. Starting this coming week but all agree with governor sununu that the fact that nine months later we don't have a next round of covert. Relief is something. I personally am. Frustrated and embarrassed about bluntly i will put a lot of that responsibility at the feet of the leader of the senate. Republican majority mitch mcconnell because over and over as negotiations have tried to move forward over the last nine months. He's had a key red line and sticking point there is now i think real optimism because a terrific group of eight senators. Bipartisan group.

Sadly things are likely to get even worse over the past week there have been nearly one point. Five million newly confirmed cases of covid. It's an average of almost two hundred twelve thousand new cases per day. So right now. Take a look at the counter at the bottom of your screen. We started it at the top of the out to show you what two hundred and twelve thousand new cases. A day comes to in sixty minutes the length of this broadcast. It's sobering figure we're going to go back to the counter throughout the hour but as you can see already. We're almost at five hundred cases in addition to this attack on our health. There's the summer take attack on our democracy late friday. The supreme court rejected a lawsuit filed by eighteen republican state attorney general in support it by more than one hundred twenty republican members of congress more than half of the republicans in congress to overturn the legitimate results of the presidential election that president trump would support such an anti small d democratic move. That's no longer a surprise. What's more alarming is the willingness of so many republicans to debase themselves and the democracy that they've sworn to serve simply for fear of losing a primary or more trumping candidate read. This list learned the names. The courts have preserved.

NIH Director Dr. Collins and Surgeon General Dr. Adams Testify on Vaccines

"Well, it's a big concern. Can a vaccine for the Corona virus be developed at record speed and still be safe? While medical experts are telling lawmakers, science will prevail over politics? As we hear from W. GOP's Mitchell Miller today on the Hill, Senator Bernie Sanders pressed the experts during the Senate Health Committee hearing, noting President Trump has suggested a vaccine could come before Election Day. You enjoying me and many others in telling the president of the United States to get out of science and let the scientists do their job and I h director Francis Collins. I can't say strongly enough that the decisions about how this vaccine is going to be evaluated. Incest is going to be based on science. Collins did not. Commit to a specific timeline for the vaccines. Approval. I do have cautious optimism that by the end of 2020, at least one of these vaccines will have emerged and turned out to be safe and effective. But even that is a guess. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller. W T o p.

"We want the schools open and George is a great example of a state that set it all right. It's a special place. Great people and they've done really well really well with the virus. He says open. Open. He means open in full kids being able to attend each and every day at their school. The science should not stand in the way of this divide between trump loyalists and public health experts escalated this week into a character assault on Dr Voucher to of Mr Trump's closest aides trade adviser. Peter Navarro published an op Ed calling vouching wrong about everything deputy chief of staff. Dan Savino shared this cartoon on Social Media by an artist whose work has been criticized for its antisemitic imagery what? What happened with Peter Navarro Indebted. I can't even comment on that. That just is beyond my comprehension why he did that, but I. do not believe that the White House is trying to discredit the for trump insists he has a good relationship with Ouchi on Friday. He again singled him out for criticism. Duck avow she said, don't wear a mask. Our surgeon general terrific guy said don't wear a mask. Everybody who's saying don't wear a mask. All of sudden everybody's got to wear a mask. And joining me now. I first broadcast interview during this pandemic as Dr Francis Collins he's the director of the National Institutes of health and it is worth noting is technically anthony. FAUCI spots. Dr Collins Welcome to meet the press and let me just ask the basic question that I've asked. A number of people that are in this coronavirus task force over the last couple of weeks. Why are we doing so poorly? Compared to the rest of the industrialized world in combating this virus? Well Good Morning Chuck and Yeah I am wearing a mask, and I have worn it. Since I left my home to come here to our little studio at NIH, but since we're talking and the person, the only other person the room is at least ten feet away. I'm going to take it off for this interview, but I did want anybody to think that we take masks as something optional for people who want to protect themselves and people around them. Why are we doing so poorly well? It's certainly the case that when you compare our experience with Europe, which your numbers just did. We basically did a good job in New, York and New Jersey and Connecticut with that terrible crisis that happened and took many lives, which we should never sort of pass by without saying what a terrible tragedy that has been. Basically steps were put in place. And if you look to see what's happening now in those areas, they came down very close to zero, but meanwhile the rest of the country. Perhaps imagining this was just a New York problem kind of went about their business. Really pay that much attention to CDC's recommendations about the phases necessary to open up safely and jumped over some of those hoops. hoops and people started congregating and not wearing masks and feeling like it's over and maybe summer it'll all go away and now here we are not only with seventy thousand new cases almost every day, but from my perspective, also quite concerning the number of hospitalizations, which is very close to being as high in the country as it was in back in April, so yeah, we got. Down here and I hope today, check. We can talk about things that bring us together, not things that divide us. We Americans are pretty good at rising to a crisis. We got one now. Let's see what we can do together. Well, that's the question Can this be done without federal leadership? I. Think, basically we Americans are individuals, and if given the appropriate information, and if it's not confused by a lot of other conspiracy theories, capable of figuring out what to do, if we want to see this current surge, and it's a real surge to turn around as you just heard from the head of the CDC All Americans need to recognize. It's up to us where a mask when you're out of your house at that is protecting other people from you because you might be that person who's infected in doesn't know it yet, and is spreading virus around do that social distancing thing? Don't congregate large groups especially not endorse and do the hand washing. We can turn this around and we don't have to wait for some sort of serious high level edict to say so. This just makes common sense at this point. It just ought to be something we all do. All Right? You just referenced the CDC Director I. Don't mean to Nitpick on this, but the president. Directly contradicted and even said. He's right about that that if everybody wore a mask I, how do you at all? Get US rowing in the same direction if you have that high level of a contradiction. Well it is bizarre that we have turned mask-wearing into something political imagine you were an alien coming to the planet earth and looking around looking at the scientific data going from very place to place and looking to see who's wearing masks. You would be totally astounded. Puzzled amazed wonder what is going on here. How could it be that something as basic as a public health action that we have very strong evidence can help seems to attach to people's political party for starters. Could we just walk? Walk away from that and say this is about all of us. We're Americans. We're pretty good at rising to a challenge a crisis. We've done so before in wartime. This is not a war, but it certain way it is against the enemy which is called the virus, and then viruses vary sneaky and stealthy and our best chance for all of us to get together and do the right thing and stop fighting so much about the divide between different political perspectives which getting in the way. Let me ask you. This should Americans be concerned that the advice that does come out of the Task Force is somehow getting watered down by political pressure. Well I'm part of the Task Force. I joined those meetings. The vice president presides over them. There's a very thoughtful exchange of Information Dr. Berg's presides presents the latest data in terms of what's happening across the country. We debate many things. There's a lot of work that goes on there about how best we can distribute resources that are needed right now, trying to figure out for instance. How does? Does aveer. This drug that we know that can help. People who are really sick in the hospital gets to the people who need it. That is not getting distorted in any way that basically is going forward in actions that are decided during that task force meeting. It's no longer of course coming to press room for a big press briefing, but the work of the task force goes on. Well. Let's talk about the issue of testing. There's a report this morning that the White House is actually pushing back on a congressional proposal that would add more money to your budget by the way more money to states and for testing and contact tracing. Are Are you guys on the task force recommending less money to states for testing and contact tracing. The Task Force as far as I know has not been engaged in that particular debate about funding this next congressional supplement that's under serious consideration in the Congress, and there's always this back, and forth between White House and Congress, when it comes to appropriations process, and apparently the opening bid from the White House was a bit surprising, certainly for many of us who were certainly hoping to see more in the way of support, but this is one of those things that will play out over the course of the coming days. Let's see where it ends up. What can the federal government do right now to improve the testing lag issue? Okay, we're getting. We're still you can make an argument. We need to do more testing. A lot of people are making that argument, but the real problem and I could tell you my my. Own family members have to wait five to seven days to get it. To get a get the result, that's becomes useless at some point if you're a cinematic, what do we do to fix that? So good, we're getting to the science here. Chuck I like this part so. The average test delay is too long. You're absolutely right. It averages around the country. It's about three days, but in some places it's as long as a week, and that really undercuts the value the testing because you do the testing to find out who's carrying the virus and then quickly get them isolated, so they don't spread it around, and it's very hard to make that work when there's a long delayed Villepin so, what are we doing? The science of this is critical. Critical actually NIH is deeply engaged in an effort to try to develop an additional array of tests that can be done in what we call point of care..

NIH Chief Gives Update On The Coronavirus In The U.S.

"Day, another record set across the United States 59,000 new Corona virus cases recorded yesterday, breaking the record again for a single day high for new infections, and that number capture surges in states from Texas to California, Florida to West Virginia. So where are we in the ark of the pandemic? Is there any glimmer of hope going to and how to square disconnects in the guidance coming from our political leaders and our most senior scientists? Questions we're going to put to one of our country's most senior scientists were going to spend this whole segment of the program questioning Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr Collins, Welcome back Good to speak with you again. Nice to be on your program. Mary Louise, So 59,000 new cases in one day. If I had told you back in March there February that that's where we would be as a nation in July, Would you have believed me? I would certainly have hoped not. We knew back in March and April that we had hit a terrible peak of infections, and we worked really hard across the nation to try to figure out How to flatten that curve and to bring that down, and we never really got it down. And now it's certainly headed up again in a way that is really quite alarming. I mean, hindsight always is 2020. But if there were one thing you wish we could go back and redo what would it be? You know, I think we learned what we needed to do in terms of social distancing in terms of wearing masks in terms of being very careful about public gatherings, especially indoors. But those were applied in a somewhat spotty fashion. People basically got tired of it, but the virus didn't get tired of spreading. And I'm afraid as things over the course of the last couple of months opened up. They weren't always following the CDC guidelines in the way that we would have hoped, and now we're starting to reap the consequences. And I particularly concerned that younger people feeling that maybe they're not so much a risk have felt much less likely to adhere to those guidelines. And have therefore been getting infected in larger numbers and then spreading it on to their neighbors, their families and particularly vulnerable people who we now are quite worried about to to where things might go next, Dr Anthony found. She warned last week that we could be on track to see 100,000 new cases a day. I interviewed him right after that, and he told me he dropped that number to jolt people to try to get our attention what she did. But have you seen anything in the weeks since he said it That suggests we are not heading for that outcome. Well, Dr Fauci is my colleague and I both worked at the National Institutes of Health. I'm actually his boss, although he is, of course, the most highly regarded public health spokesperson about this Outbreak. So when he speaks, people listen and well, they should. If you look at the shape of that curve and just do your extrapolation like you would in math class, you would say, having now hit just about 60,000 that there's no sign that that's topping out. And so his prediction I fear might in fact, turn out to be true, But we have things we condone about that. And that's where I'm hoping, Despite the anxiety that now spreads across the land again that we should not feel powerless that we are in a circumstance where we could try once again to flatten that curve by taking all of those recommendations about masks about social distancing about avoiding Being close together, especially indoors and see if we can do something to prevent this from going even further, obviously particularly important in places where we can see the community spread has gotten really quite out of control. Like Arizona. Ah, like California like Texas like Florida. But other places should not feel immune. The time to make those actions most effective is before you have a really widespread community problems. So I look in your own community see what's happening. If there's a hint that things were starting up again, everybody should take action. And so should the government leaders that have a chance to do something at that. Woo that to your earlier point, though, which is the guidance was out there in the spring and Individuals weren't paying attention. We got tired of it and elected officials were reopening anyway, Do you What gives you confidence that the advice that the best guidance from the CDC and another on other agencies will be heated now? Well, I guess I'm an eternal optimist. And so I will say when people are faced with reality, and you can't look at the current circumstance and not admit we've got a real problem. That perhaps this hope for sort of outcome that okay, it's summertime. And maybe this won't be such a problem. We've gotten past that. That's no longer the case. Anybody who's trying to Pretend we can just fake our way through this. We're not succeeding at that. So it's time to wake up. Look at those recommendations get serious again recognize that it's up to all of us, and we're Americans, and ultimately, we usually do the right thing. This is the right time to do that. Speaking of recommendations, I do want to ask you about schools and the debate raging over whether to reopen them. President Trump and other administrations have been downplaying the recommendations of their own health. Experts who will have seen the president tweeting that safety measures recommended by the CDC. Things like you just nodded to, like wearing masks and spacing. Student desks apart, he says. These air expensive they're impractical. Do you stand behind the CDC recommendations? I think CDC is our nation's expert group in public health, and we should take their recommendations as the recommendation we should follow. I mean, it is. It is complicated. Let's be clear if you're talking about students going back to school in Casper, Wyoming, where there are very few of any cases. That's a very different story than if you're talking about students going back to school in Houston, which is in the middle of a very serious outbreak, so blanket recommendations, saying everybody should do the same thing fly in the face of the reality of where we are with this outbreak, But CDC has recommendations to try to adjust to that. I think most of the school experts are looking at those Also worth looking at the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Here is a very distinguished group. That is worried as I am, as we all should be about the consequences of kids not being in school. That's a serious issue. Kids are basically being harmed by the absence of social interactions, losing up all kinds of time in terms of their learning curves. We do want kids back in school where those good things can happen, but everything in life is a benefit and a risk. And the risks are going to depend a lot on where you are at this point and how much that virus is spreading around, and that just has to be factored into the decisions. Ultimately, it's gonna have to be the local authorities that make That kind of judgment. I hear you're choosing your words carefully on. I do want to ask you since since we already brought up Dr Fauci. You and he streamed an online conversation earlier this week, which I watched. It was informative. Thank you for that. It also got some buzz because a lot of journalists have been complaining that they cannot get an interview with Dr Fauci. Here's a taste of that We have not been able to get our requests for Dr Fauci approved by the Trump administration. In the last three months, high profile figures from the task force, including Dr Fauci have been unable to secure White House permission to appear on American TV networks. I just want to let you respond to that, because, as you noted, your Dr Fauci is boss to your knowledge is here. Anybody else who's message on public health conflicts with the administration's message? Are they being prevented from talking freely? I think every administration has always had an interest in making sure that people who work for the government if they're going to make a presentation to the public, that there is some consultation about that. I do that as well. When I'm going to have this Kind of a conversation like we're having right now, but I have not been canceled feelings that you can't speak to a TV network. I need to run. That invitation passed to be sure that the administration is aware of it and that they don't have any particular issues with the request. That's been the case for every administration since I've been in the government, which is 27 years. Return you to vaccines in a couple of minutes we have left this week, The government announced $1.6 billion contract to a company to manufacture a Corona virus vaccine. This company. Novavax, though, does not have a product that has been proven. Toe work, which made me think that feels like an awfully big bet to place on something unproven. Why is that the right path if you think that is the right path. Oh, I think it is the right path. Mary Louise. I think What we're trying to do here is to have a lot of potential shots on goals. This vaccine is going to be our best hope to get past this terribly difficult year of 2020 And the more that we have multiple different scientific strategies, the more likely we are that at least one and maybe several of them will work. The Novak strategy is basically to make a protein sub unit. It's different than what's happening with the other vaccines that are about to get started in the next month or two with their phase three trials. And so it is hedging their bets. It's trying as you would, I think, want to when something is a really serious issue, and you want to be sure you succeed. Make sure you've tried several things that you have a menu of opportunities that's going to cover all of the scientific basis, and Novavax brings another one. To the table, so we're glad to have them in the team. If I hear you right? It sounds like it's it's possible. This might be money thrown down the drain. But at this point we don't have something proven, and we have to work towards something. So we're goingto as you said, had hedge your bets. That's exactly right on. I think that's probably what the public would want us to do At a time like this, where I mean, if it wasn't such a rush, we might try one vaccine. And then six months later go Oh, that one wasn't quite what we wanted and then try another one. And it could be five years or more before we actually had the answer. We don't have time for that. Think the public doesn't expect us to be doing the slow boat here, so the idea is to have several of these to invest in them expect that some of those monies are actually not going to pay off. But one of them will maybe more than one will. Ultimately, I think that's what the public is expecting. And what we're trying to deliver. Speaking of operation Slow boat and not wanting to go there. We just have 30 seconds or so left. But how do you reassure people that With the speed that this operation is being developed. The whole thing is called Operation Warp speed to try to get a vaccine that it will also be safe. Well, I want to assure everybody about that The speed is being done by basically doing in parallel things that otherwise would have been done in a Siri's of steps, but every step is being carried out with rigor and intensity. Before we have to go. Let me just say anybody who's interested by the way and signing up for a vaccine trial because they're about to get under a going to give you a Uriel Carell correctness prevention network dot org's okay.

"Yeah so Pretty much when we first saw the virus it was attacking a the elderly and so we saw it as a problem for the elderly and they do typically have a compromised immune system. Now what we're seeing obviously is that it's not just the elderly who can actually develop infection. It can it can attack anyone so we're actually seeing that underage shifty five. We're seeing more cases so we're learning more each day about this virus right. Thank you for that. We'll continue this conversation. If you have any questions for Dr Collins call in now. She's with us. Only the first part of the program. One eight hundred nine six two eight four eight is the number and of course we are also interested in your own tribal community.

"They helped me with math looking at your best case scenario, your lower bound, everything goes goes, right? What are we talking about? In her American cost per person cost. Well is very crude. But it's about ten thousand dollars per capita per person. Cost. So basically million Americans. Okay. Thirty five trillion three hundred and fifty million Americans. It's about ten thousand person. This is she's been radio programming from Tuesday, that's real money. And and I was listening to your testimony, Dr Collins, and as you were going through some of those numbers and and talking about after the Affordable Care Act things that had gotten better. And I want to stipulate that I agree with everything that you that you said about increased increased outcomes what wasn't reflected there, though is whether we got the best bang for our dollar. Of course, if I spend a trillion dollars on healthcare subsidizing American families with their healthcare costs when I run a cold. It says are your healthcare costs easier to manage today than they were yesterday culture going to say, yes, I don't think that's the right question though. I think the question is we agreed to spend a trillion dollars. Are we spending that trillion dollars in the way that helps the most families do the most work the most for them for themselves? Reduced. Stresses that that we've talked about have have you seen any data along those lines. Not not did we do better. But did we do the best? We could do given the enormous resources. We invest we can actually do better seventeen states haven't expanded Medicaid. So that's one area where we haven't fully implemented implemented the law. There have been some changes to the cost sharing reduction subsidies in the marketplaces that have bumped up premiums on silver plans, which is hurt some people but people's tax credits adjust. And so and actually the federal government's paying a lot more because we're not paying we're not paying these cost sharing reduction subsidies. So in terms of implementation, there are definitely areas where we could we could do better we could extend the subsidies. So that people just over that threshold for marketplace tax credits could could afford their plan. So I also want to say to on didn't really let me let me reclaim I'm because I understand that. If we wanted to improve the Affordable Care Act in its current in structure, there are lots of things that ultra do. In fact, I've. Suspected lots of women around the table would rather do that than the Medicare for all planet. Wasn't the question..
