She warns that the nation's public health care is in tatters. He says and doctors a quote building the plane while they are flying it and the numbers don't lie as America's still tops the world. World in the number of confirmed cases and deaths, so finding a vaccine gets more and more urgent, but just how close or how far are we from getting one? My first guest is Dr. Richard Hatchet he served as an adviser on pandemics, presidents George W, Bush, and Barack Obama and he's now. CEO of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations Sepe which has nine vaccines in development right now, and he's joining us now from Surrey in England so Dr. hatchet welcome back to the program. The last time we had you on was a couple of months ago and you were talking about the timeframe for a vaccine, and you were saying potentially twelve to eighteen months. Where are we now any closer? It was. It was a couple months ago, so we have we are going to start up. I chance Nice Nice to be back on the show. We are beginning to see early data from from some of the early clinical studies and I would say the data that we're seeing while it's limited is is not discouraging it. It's it's even encouraging on, so we were not running into any major hurdles yet a. we have a long way to go. When I made that prediction you know really the prediction is that we hope to have vaccines that are becoming more broadly available in the first half of next year and I would say that still what we're as are.

"Welcome to the program everyone. I'm Christiane working from home in London. As much of the world continues to battle cove in nineteen. We're facing a global recession of historic proportions. In the United States. Numbers are expected to show the economy. Shed twenty two million jobs last month alone. Thirty million have been lost since the shutdown began and here the UK is likely to see the deepest recession in its history the same for the EU. And while this is because so many people have obeyed those stay at home or does the question now is will people be comfortable leaving their homes to go back to work experts. Tell us the only real way out of this. Health economic and indeed psychological crisis is a vaccine or treatments. More than one hundred. Trials are in the works around the world right now the most mobilization in a generation but when will be successful if ever? Well the man to ask Dr Richard Hatchet. Ceo of the very organisation trying to speed up development of a vaccine. Sepe that's the organization is the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations. He also served as an adviser on pandemics for president. George W Bush and Barack Obama and Dr Hatchet is joining me now from sorry here in England Dr Hatchet. Welcome to the program. I mean if I say you are the person that everybody wants to hear from. I would not be making an overstatement. So just tell us. I've just announced the holy grail is going to be a vaccine and that there are some one hundred eight vaccine trials. I think underway around the world. What is your immediate prediction for when one might come? What is your expectation? I Christian thank you for having me on the show a week. We have said from the very beginning when we started our programs back in January that we thought if things went well that we couldn't -ticipant a vaccines becoming more broadly available Potentially within twelve to eighteen months obviously several months have passed since then We are seeing progress with our programs. We've got three vaccines if we're supporting our in clinical trials. Right now I think the timelines we laid out then realistic. Is there a possibility that vaccines could become available in small amounts at an earlier? Time Point Yes I think I think. Possibly by the end of the year we might see some small amounts of vaccine becoming available but I it's hard to see how they could be advanced much more quickly than that. So you still saying despite the voice on this so you're still saying twelve to eighteen months as possible because there's a lot of others who are saying it's it's really an incredibly high expectation a high bar. They point out that the quickest vaccine development I think on record was four years and that was for months back in the back in the nineteen fifties that. That's that's right. That's that's a famous story in the sorry about the extra noise That's a famous story. Invex analogy Maurice elleman developed at mumps vaccine within four years it does remain the fastest time from the basic development of a vaccine up until Delivering TO MARKET. We do see ways to compressed timelines and and we have been working very diligently to do so compressing clinical development timelines and certainly compressing manufacturing tat much. It is an aggressive and very ambitious. Time line up but we've also seen remarkable advances. I wanted the teams. That were supporting. The modern AVEC seen Actually entered clinical trials. Just nine weeks. After the genetic sequences were released in January it enter clinical trials in mid March. We've had as I said we've had other teams enter clinical trials at believe there's six or seven teams now in clinical trials but with a couple Seemed to begin. Phase Two clinical trials. So that's that is extremely fast of everyone around. The world is looking at the how to compress timelines even further and particularly how to Expand the manufacturing as quickly as possible. So that when. The data accumulates. It shows that the vaccines are safe and effective. That will be able to release vaccine quickly. So you've said in in order to have a shot. There needs to be as many shots at goal as possible. So is that why we're seeing so many different groups trying around the world and to that point also we've talked you've called. Sepe for no two billion dollars to be put into this. We know that this latest fundraising effort by Sepe and Garvey and and the Gates Foundation and the European Union and others is calling for eight billion. Just where are we in terms of resources and personnel and science labs to speak to have the most shots at goal as you have? Put it where we talk about the shots on goal because because vaccine development is a high risk undertaking. Most vaccines are entering. The early stage clinical trials. He's phase one clinical trials based on historical experience. We estimate they might have attend to a twenty percent chance of actually reaching licensure so so we need many many programs moving forward as quickly as possible so that we can increase the odds that will get a successful vaccine as quickly as possible. I think the encouraging thing over the last couple months is the way to the global scientific community is truly come together scientists all over the world. You know what they're doing focusing Kobe. Nineteen we're learning a tremendous amount about the virus. We're learning a tremendous amount about the underlying. Immunology will be particularly important in terms of developing vaccines and and people are putting a amazing resources. You know at at our at our disposal at the disposal of the scientific community. We've mentioned you mentioned the the two billion dollar gold. We articulated a couple of months ago. at at this point we've raised about two thirds of that amount and that was originally envisioned as a target to cover expenses on the research and development side for twelve to eighteen months up. So I'm I'm very encouraged. I think we've got a long way to go on and we've got a lot of money that we need to raise but It's it's you know we're making tremendous progress so I it's interesting to hear you sounding upbeat and people will take a lot of comfort from that but I also wanted to ask you about some of the issues and questions that people have. I mean for instance I just learned that there are no vaccines and there have been none for any of the other corona viruses that have come because there's a particularly difficult specific sort of way to deal with what it attacks which is the upper respiratory tract. Tell me about that. Why is the upper respiratory tract? Which is where this. Kovic is attacking. Why is that so difficult to treat or to to immunize? Well I'll tell you the we have encountered run before SARS severe acute respiratory syndrome. Aris is corona virus. Moore's Mentally Sports Stories Syndrome. Farris is a is a corona virus. And we've undertaken next scene development for them before I I wouldn't say that the reason we don't have corona virus x scenes now is is because in treating upper respiratory tract viruses is the main barrier. I would say the main barrier the reason that we haven't succeeded in developing runabout exchanges diseases that we would have considered developing teams against SARS. And Moore's are are rare SARS as one large very significant outbreak. But then if once outbreak was containment viruses never reemerged murders in the last eight or nine years has caused less than three thousand cases of. There's there's very little in the way of a commercial market or these scenes and thus there's there's very little private sector capital going into developing vaccines against him. One of the reasons. Sepe the organization that I lead was created was to develop Ximenes against epidemic diseases where there are no commercial markets driving the development in one of the one of the viruses that we were working on and had allocated about one hundred million dollars towards exiting development for was merged so we had been working on corona virus prior to the emergence of Kobe. Nineteen and fortunately we were able to take some of what we had learned about Corona viruses trying to develop vaccines against a different corona virus to bring that into the fight against cupid nineteen. So how do you feel when and again? Correct me if I'm wrong on this but there's evidence because you've just talked about SARS and Moore's and the other in any event vaccines of this level don't provide endless immunity so give us your best bet on on what might be developed for cove it and how much immunity and I guess. A related question is. Do we yet know if anybody has had it. How Long. They their immunity lasts. We don't event in in. That's that's certainly something that we need to better understand. I mean remember this virus as far as we know first emerged in November or December of last year. And and so we haven't had a lot of time to disarm the duration of immunity. There's there is a tremendous amount about this virus that we don't understand up you undoubtedly heard in recent days the reports of of a new syndrome. It's being observed in children. There have been reports of Potting disorders an observed So we have a lot still to understand about this virus. What we know about about Moose viruses is immune system is involved in clearing the barras once the immune system kicks in You know you do. achieve immunity against things that you've been exposed you previously that immunity is not always endure it Influenza is an example of of Orissa. Changes very rapidly in nature and requires us to receive repeated. Immunizations is covered. Nineteen going to be like that or is it going to be more like measles where a single vaccination and effectively vaccinate you for life. We don't know yet. That leads me to the question.
