What if we vaccinated everyone in poorer countries first?

"Hello this is corona cost a daily podcast all about the coronavirus. I'm health reported teigen. Thailand and opposition journalist alter norman swan is tuesday the ninth of march two thousand and twenty one. So let's talk today about who gets vaccines when and let's talk about it from a global perspective because we've been talking a lot in australia about phase one a phase one b and all that sort of thing but really we have virtually no virus. It'll in australia. And it's running rampant around the globe and as we were saying yesterday when the virus running rampant in poorer countries. there's a high likelihood of variants popping up. That could cause problems with vaccines that we've got so ruth is ask us. Would it be betta for australia to vaccinate ourselves first and then turn our attentions to helping. Poor countries get vaccinated all to prioritize vaccinating people in poor countries first and then vaccinating australians. Second well there is a way through this but it's politically fraught one is that you could really go and make sure that all workers. That's everybody airport. Workers airport catering workers airline crews etc and their families and households are all unionized and preferably with the pfizer. Vaccines works quickly and his high performance. Hopefully against the variance and higher performance than astra. Also if you were to immunize. Australians before they come back home harder much harder to do then serious pretty well protected with our contact tracing and so on. And we've got time and therefore you could in theory divert two countries around us at an earlier. Stage the problem there is we would have to actually go into those countries and help them implement. It's not enough just to jump. Fis are at their door and hope that it actually gets there. We would have to devote resources to helping like we did with hiv by the way to helping. Those countries implement prevention and implement immunization campaigns. Many of them are pretty good at it but the probably need help to do that. So it's not just. The vaccine is the services in order to do it and the cold chain which is quite considerable so the issue could and it makes public health sense internationally if you could suppress this in countries where it's running rampant and have fewer variants being thrown off. Then you would actually make a big difference. But if you think of indonesia it's a huge country with a vast population and it would require concerted international effort to make sure indonesia it's enough doses and implements them and then you've got the pacific islands some of which are very competent. Doing this sort of thing and some of which might have problems. It's not straightforward australia's a rich country. But it's not particularly be country on the global scale would estimating vaccines really make that much of a difference. Mchugh difference to the pacific islands where the populations are small and we could certainly deliver enough vaccine to really get great coverage and places like fiji to value solomon islands and so on because the small populations and we can certainly devote enough vaccine there to get really great coverage the issues indonesia which is going too fast population as i said and chaotic health system in some parts and some of the islands massive cappella ago. So the question is what do you do. But indonesia howdy helping to nesia the sort of those. We could give would be a little bit of a drop in the ocean which require other nations to help out am and other suppliers to help heart.

"I'm health reported teigen tayla opposition and journalists ultra. Norman swan is tuesday. The second of march and of course we know the vaccine rolette is happening all across australia and to give us a bit of an insight of how it's going in melbourne. We have a special guest today. Welcoming back professor marian kinda who's head of infectious diseases at western health. Thanks for making time. For us marian. Good morning so marian. Just give us a sense of what you've had to do and what you're covering and and the challenge at western health. We are responsible for the tolerant. Airports border on staff including flight crew as well as the hospitals in our catchment area. So that is. The pack will campus as well as western health and some other hospitals as well. You talk them at the time. Precious that have been anew with just mobilizing for these vaccine. Rollout lots of people in our organization have described as doing six months of work in three weeks. A lot of people put in a lot of effort to get this up and running. And i'm just so proud of what we have been able to achieve. Now we've heard a lot about training. How different is dealing with this pfizer. Vaccine from pooping call for measles australia. One of the major things which is different is one. This is an ultra. Low temperature require the cold chain requirements at different and in addition we have to use multi. Does files and in australia. Multi smiles have not been used much at all and this is a very very precious product and so we want to make sure that we maximise the number of doses that we can get out of a multi file so for the fis vaccine. That is that we aim to take out six doses out of fat multi file which is a challenge because we constantly do not have what a cold low dead space needles overloaded space syringes. That are family style absolutely great and they are able to reliably get sixty six out of multidex files. Solo did space. Needle is nato where. There's not a bit of a minimum amount of vaccine. That's left in it after it's been completely delib is correct correct and so we want to make sure with. Everybody gets exactly the dose that they need. And if you don't have a low dead space being you have vaccine that is lifting the end. The person does not get the full amount or you cannot get the full dose of the vaccine pulled out of the multi vile and you've got to go to w. correct so. This is a complex process. So i'll pharmacy staff. They spent one week specifically training for this to make sure that they abide by be cold chain requirements which has significant in addition to make sure that they use the proper aseptic technique. So that they don't have any contamination of vile that occurs and then they practiced and practiced and practiced to make sure with dummy vials to make sure that they could get the appropriate number of doses. Out of that multi vile.

Is Astra the wrong vaccine for border workers?

"One of the big milestones we had about yesterday. Was that the oxford astrazeneca vaccine. I devices of that have arrived in australia. Which is something that we've been waiting for. We're in phase one of the role at at the moment and those are the priority people. And i thought that those people were getting the fis at shot. But now we've got the oxford esters shut here. Are they going to be getting that as well and should they be getting that as well. We're in the press release from the prime minister and the minister. They say that they will guess. That's what they say in the press release and in fact the minister himself a week or so ago a press conference said the same thing that there would be a mix of these vaccines and the trouble with. That is an an accord. Chris murray who ahead on seven thirty last monday which he was. Who's the head of the institute for health. Metrics evaluation in seattle is. That astra is the wrong vaccine. If you're looking at borders let's pull back a little bit about what you're trying to achieve and your vaccine strategy are vaccine strategy is really for a country that has lots of covid around in the middle of covid outbreak. Because you want to partake. H care quite rightly aged care. Workers quite rightly you want to get in there and then you want to protect the rest of the population you want to. Doctors nurses people who work in hospitals all that nor question and we still want to do that but if the virus gets in through the borders that's how the virus gets seen it doesn't suddenly pop aged care home or residential care or pop up in the alfred hospital in melbourne. It comes from overseas. We'll come back to the new zealand situation currently in a minute. So the total strategy in the first instance should be about the borders if we can keep our borders secure. The virus won't get in and then we've got time to immunize for safety reasons. The rest of the population and so astro is the wrong vaccine for. That is not the wrong vaccine. I'll get. I want to say up front. I will get the astro vaccine. I'll be happy to get it. It will protect you in severe disease. But it won't necessarily protect our borders. It will against probably against the uk variant. It's not going to protect almost certainly against us at african variant which only showed ten percent efficacy against. We don't know what is going to do against the brazilian variant which shows vaccine escape. And there's the california variant in american various which. Look as if they might be a bit vaccine resistant themselves and so what we should be doing is saying well astra's fine and the scottish artist suggests it's fine for preventing severe disease but that's for a country that we should be covered getting in the first place. So that's about the pfizer vaccine because it stops transmission. More effectively than the astra zeneca vaccine. I it works within three weeks. You don't have to wait. Three months for the efficacy. Second reason is that moderna there is no. There are no data drawn. Skerritt said on chronic is last week for pfizer. But it's almost identical vaccines to madeira and moderna reasonable efficacy against the south african vary not great but much better than ten percent and and it gives stronger immunity faster so for our borders we should be using pfizer and getting quick protection and we should be protecting their households. Because where's it gonna go after they get infected should he be infected. And if it's the south african is going to go to members of their households at a higher chance so their families or flatmates should be immunized with pfizer to and then the third thing that we should be doing which nobody's talking about just wondering why not but when i talk and by the way this is not necessarily me talking actually sounded out on people who know what they're talking about who aren't where willingness to publicly contradict the government. They say es actually what we should be doing and it's largely what new zealand is doing. They are immunizing. their hotel. boorda workers and their immunizing their families. They've had an outbreak which will come to in a minute. The other thing we should be doing is actually having a forward strategy. Which is if you want to get back into australia. Get immunized and we should help them so some vaccine doses could go overseas to australia. Scott send send it over to make sure the co chain right to our consulates and remember. Pfizer is not quite as temperature sensitive as people say. It's it's a problem once you've dominated you've got to get rid of it but it's not quite temperature sensitive as can last for a while so if you're an australian in london paris and new york senate to this german embassy or their physicians. They've got doctors attached and immunize streams. Get them to pay for. It is cheaper than a hotel quarantine and so you. Don't get on the plane until you've had two doses and you waited another two weeks so you're fully immunized

Vaccines arrive in Australia. Now the challenge begins

"We mocked a really significant milestone in the coronavirus pandemic e that. We've been having norman. The first isis of the fis coronavirus vaccine. Which has been approved for use by the therapeutic goods administration touchdown in australia. Ready to start rolling them at next week to the high priority groups so big milestone. what does the next phase actually look like though the rollout. Well i think a lot of it's been left to the states a suspect that what you'll see is remarkable uniformity which is the first line of defense and the first line of people who are most vulnerable as we've seen again and again and again people who are working on our borders driving buses transporting people from the airport and working in hotels looking people who've just arrived so those are the people who will be immunized i i i would imagine a right around the country that will protect them. They will get the pfizer vaccine. Mostly which is good because that gives the most chance of reducing transmission if they do get infected was protecting them against disease and then aged care and high priority. Health care workers so frontline healthcare workers that first phase and. We haven't heard too much of exactly. Who's going to do what we're in terms of administering vaccines. I know that. A lot of general practices have volunteered. We do have a good network of general practices. So should be okay. But i'm getting any feedback from various parts of australia. Saying they're really from people in the business. If you like who are saying. They're really not sure what the plans are so. I think it's still a work in progress. But the first phase shoot go ok e one would hope and then there's a process of with komo's taking responsibility for care and getting enough doses out into each care which are most vulnerable communities. Should the vaccine escape into the general community right one of the questions that were getting a lot of from people from audience members. He's will we be notified when it's when it's out turn but we don't know that yet. I'm not sure how that's how that is indeed going to work. But i assume that there are ways through medicare numbers and other means that the government can text phone number. I know but. I assume that there are ways of finding out who you are. What you've got an assume that also that your general practitioner how to battling those are the sorts of things that are not entirely clear how people will be identified individually so the scale of vaccinating an entire country even with a relatively small population like ustralia is a messy. Ask so we heard last week will health organization expert advisor from the university of new south. Wales mary louise mc laws saying that. We're going to need to vaccinate something like one hundred ninety thousand people per day to get to the targets that have been set for october this year. Is that going to be feasible. Well low to middle income countries do mass vaccination programmes all the time but they do frequently in fact some some would say that. They're better equipped than many advanced countries richer countries to do this and we've had a rabies outbreak through extraordinary numbers very quickly and and so you can get large venues with nurses factory. Like processes logistic simplified dines. It's all there and people head for mass vaccination areas. You can actually get through very large numbers very quickly if you need to you so those numbers are not impossible. But they are hard to achieve. It's gonna take a ramp up so we're going to start off slow and then ramp up from there. The rate limiting step is actually going to be the supply of vaccines. Are we going to have seven. Hundred thousand dozes available a week and it's going to take a while to to that point so i think that's the issue rob van. Can we administer those vaccines. i mean. Interestingly we do fifty to sixty thousand covid tests a day nationally at the moment perhaps a similar framework could be used to roll out the vaccines. Yeah i think they are thinking of respiratory clinics that model being used as well with the drive through with the general general practitioners which was very useful as well as public hospitals providing those sort of drive through facilities as well. You can get through very large numbers. You just go to have accused people ready together. You've got to have the supply. You gotta have the cold chain and you've got to be computerized so that you can enter people's names into the register and you've got to somewhere where you can keep them for fifteen minutes and then observe them with resuscitation facilities so it's not a simple as during the

What Medical Conditions Will prevent Or Limit Covid Vaccinations?

"What medical conditions will prevent old limit. Covid vaccination were medical conditions. You can't call. Pregnancy medical condition but pregnancy at the moment is an open question because the vaccine mostly not being tested in pregnant women. It's highly unlikely it's dangerous and different countries have different arrangements. We've yet to see what's going to happen here. So that's one thing. Young children is another again. Just to spe- sorted out as time goes on and as we get towards the end we will find out people who are immunocompromised. Do need to have this immunization. And it's quite likely that what they re immunization that they should have is in fact. The fis are one because it seems to give a much stronger deeper response and if your compromise you want to stimulate your immune system quite deeply so there's that people who've had an nf electic reaction need to be careful with the pfizer vaccine yet to be seen whether there's any reactions to the astro on it. So compound in the fis vaccine. That does it so at the moment. I don't know of any others. But if you're extremely frail and your doctor who the person's daughter would say look you've only got a very limited time to live than most people would say that you probably shouldn't have the vaccine because the stress on your immune system may be too much apart from that. It's not entirely clear. Who else would be

COVID-19 vaccine may reduce virus transmission.

COVID-19 vaccine may reduce virus transmission.

"Covid nineteen vaccine shows a hint that it may reduce transmission of the virus in office strong protection for three months on just a single dose researchers said on wednesday in an encouraging turn in the campaign to suppress the outbreak. The preliminary findings from oxford university. A co developer of the vaccine could vindicate the british government's controversial strategy of delaying vaccine shot for up to twelve weeks so that more people can be quickly given a first dose up to now the recommended time between doses has been four weeks. The research could also bring scientists closer to an answer to one of the big questions about the vaccination drive. Will the vaccines actually curb. The spread of the corona virus. It's not clear. What implications if any the findings might have for the two other major vaccines being used in the west pfizer and madonna in the united states. Dr anthony found. She dismissed the idea of deliberately delaying. Second shots saying the. Us will go by the science and data from the clinical trials. The two doses of the fis into madonna vaccines are supposed to be given three and four weeks apart still. The research appears to be good news in the desperate efforts to arrest the spread of the virus and also suggests a way to ease vaccine shortages into more arms more quickly but it was unclear whether the vaccines could also suppress transmission of the virus. That is where the someone inoculated could still acquire the without getting sick and spread it to others as a result. Experts have been saying that even people who have been vaccinated should continue to wear masks and keep their distance from others.

You thought herd immunity would save us? Maybe not

You thought herd immunity would save us? Maybe not

"We're talking about pandemics norman one of the phrases that was bandied about a lot especially at the beginning was the idea of herd immunity that we get to a stage where the virus con spread willy nilly through the community anymore because enough people have had it that it doesn't spread as rapidly anymore and the theoretical threshold for that based on how much a single person with covid sort of tends to spread to was about sixty seventy percent. So what do we know about places in the world where there has been a lot of cover transmission whether we're reaching this community threshold and it's actually making a difference. Well funny you should say that because a couple of days ago in the lancet published a report from brazil which is actually quite disturbing. So the reported from a city in brazil called monas- who are monogamous. Which is in the amazon northwest brazil. I think it is and they had done a study of blood. Donors indicated four seventy. Six percent of the population had been affected with sars cov to by october of last year. And therefore you would assume with fat pie attack rates. You've got herod immunity which is above sixty as you said between sixteen seventy percent except that happened in january in other words just this month between the first of january in january nineteenth compared to december first two thousand nine hundred they had three thousand four hundred thirty one hospital admissions for sars coffee to for covid nineteen compared to five hundred and fifty two in the first twenty days for three weeks of december right. So they've had a big spike last year. It's dropped off. And now the saying a big spike again now. This and hospitalizations had remained low for about seven months. And you've just seen this spike in january and The question is what's going on here. So you could have overestimated the attack rate and the haired immunity ratio so possible that it's a high estimate in terms of when people were immune but even their low estimates based on perhaps errors in their assumptions of Wayne people what antibody response. It's still about fifty two percent as their low estimate there and that should still can fair some degree of immunity. But they do say that when you compare. The blood donors to average population. There was no difference in the university seems to be quite a representative sample of the general community. So they assume but seventy six percent is accurate so then they go onto looking at whether or not. There's been a waning of antibodies. During that time that could be other response but they showed that you and british healthcare workers reinfection was rare up to about six months after the primary infection. It could be due to variance because we've talked a lot on kron cast by the variance in brazil and they've really got to three lineages of variants in brazil which could be both more virulent and indeed war contagious. So the worry here is that we don't really know why they've had a resurgence in a community that should be pretty immune and it's not that these people are getting a model infection the second time around either because the measure that they looking at his hospitalization so presumably people quite sick. Yes and there is growing evidence that some some of these variants are were virulence. Although that's that's not been confirmed in any pure view jr journal. In fact one thing i need to say. But this paper is that it's in the lancet. And therefore it has gone undergone some degree of peer review rather than some of the other pre publication papers. We sometimes court from. So what are we. Take away from this. It seems like a pretty scary fact is is heard immunity. A false goal. Do we know whether vaccination is going to have a long long lasting immunity associated with it like this kind of worrying. It is kind of wearing. The good news is that consistent evidence from immunization at least with the astro vaccine and the fis vaccine even though the astro vaccine may be less efficacious at preventing all disease is that they do seem to generate an immune response. That's bigger and deeper than you get from alive infection which is very unusual. 'cause usually live infections. Give you a better degree of immunity particularly with influenza. But it seems to be contradicted in this. So it's likely that vaccination gives you a better immune response that lasts longer. But you'd have to say that from the study you don't have to watch pretty closely whether or not immunity wayne's faster are your vulnerable to variants more than people have thoughts. I mean it's it's mystery could be wrong but it's a it's a real warning sign.

"And the quest for a vaccine for coronavirus has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Norman has an like we've been. We knew that it was needed. The science is massive. Things have been approved. And then now. We're looking at the especially the fis. Abondoned take vaccine. Which was the first cab off the rank and a lot of people around the world.

The world is obviously enormous task. Pfizer has committed to one point three billion doses in two thousand twenty one and just up to two billion. And that's what they claim is the Is the hold up in terms of their faxing supplies. They've had to retool a factory to be able to increase their those production over the course of twenty. Twenty one to two billion doses. The marnie vaccine is supposedly an easier. Vaccine to manufacture requires different technology from the one. We've got here in australia. But they claim it's easier than some of the other more traditional vaccines we do know that The nova vaccine which is another one of the vaccines that we've committed to hear. Industry has had problems with manufacturer for the clinical trial. They've got a novel technology that links. The protein the fight the spike protein. To what's called an antient stimulate the immune so they've had some problems with that and others have had problems as well so i. It's right across the board in terms of manufacturing problems to this kind of scale so in theory easier to produce an marin vaccine bought. There are issues. No question about that but pfizer.

Should we re-think who gets the vaccine first?

"So the vaccines are coming as we keep saying and we keep hearing but one of the big discussion points. This week is who should get it first. So we've talked about this before we've talked about high risk groups like elderly people. 'cause they're at high risk of severe disease being at the front of the queue and healthcare workers because they have a high likelihood of both catching it and also spreading it. The obvious ones but there's been arguments that teachers should be given priority treatment and supermarket workers because they are frontline workers. And maybe we should also consider giving it to people who work in quarantine hotels transport because they've been spread as in the past when we have a limited supply of the vaccine. Straight up. norman. Who should be at the front of that queue. It's hard to argue with the priorities. The federal government's put out and in fact hotel quarantine workers boorda workers people dealing with people come from overseas drivers. They are actually at the front of the queue and they need to be because they are our first line of defense and they're also the most vulnerable so they need to be protected and if the vaccines dupe prevent transmission they will also be a ring of defense so that they will kind of if they do get infected they will resist infection not spread it into the community so they are very much early recipients of the vaccine the vaccine healthcare workers are hard to argue with particularly in aged care as our feel elderly care because they are extremely vulnerable to serious illness. So again it's hard to argue with that you've really gotta go for care and protection and saving lives and saving severe disease as your first priority and also if possible preventing transmission the community and remember h. Care has been a transmission point as well once it gets into each care. And they've been focused of clusters so then. The debate is a perfectly reasonable one who dealing with say young kids teachers and others of the front lines such as supermarket workers. You can argue that too on the basis of protection now. There is another argument here. Once you've covered the people who are most vulnerable whether in fact by then you'll know more about reduce transmission and whether you should switch tack because in fact if you really wanna reduce transmission in the community you need to immunize people who are at most risk of infection and those are not the elderly. The people who are at risk of infection are the younger people in the community because they know my bow their more mobile how they're out there the socially mixing and so you'd head off for people aged over eighteen and under sixty five and they might become your higher priority because if they are protected from infection they will van protect the people and that's true hair immunity. And then you away at that so that would require a bit of a radical change in approach and an assumption that you're reducing transmission but it should be more information coming in from the towns of moves. People who've been immunized overseas is already some evidence from israel reduce transmission but again in israel. The haven't yet moved into those age groups so you can't really tell but by the time we get there we might be in a position to say let's pivot and will actually go really go hell for leather for young people so we know that in australia with getting two different types of vaccine mckenna smallest supply of the fayza shot and then a lot of the oxford astrazeneca shot which has been a source of debate in australia. Because there's different efficacy between those two vaccines. And we've actually had a question about that from one about isreaeli karenna costa's gary who lives on a kibbutz and gary makes the point in agriculture. When we give treatment against pests or does as a good farmer does not repeat the same treatment twice in the same season. You should use different products different methods to attack the same disease or pest and he's wondering whether the same would bear out with a vaccine. Well if we move away from the mango and avocado plantations on an israeli boots towards vaccines. The reality with a vaccine. Is that almost all if not all at this. Stage have been designed based on the wuhan version of the corona virus from almost a year ago. So it's a good question but the reality is that changing vaccines not going to change the target. The target is despite protein from wuhan virus. It may be as time goes on and particularly with the worry about the south african variant of the virus that you might be getting code anti escape or antibody escape and you might need to redesign the vaccine with a new spike protein. In which case. Probably the fis are and moderna. Vaccines are going to be more flexible to do that. And they say we can do that within six weeks so it's not much it's not so much by varying the vaccine technology because the vaccines are all targeting. The same part of the virus

Well if we move away from the mango and avocado plantations on an israeli boots towards vaccines. The reality with a vaccine. Is that almost all if not all at this. Stage have been designed based on the wuhan version of the corona virus from almost a year ago. So it's a good question but the reality is that changing vaccines not going to change the target. The target is despite protein from wuhan virus. It may be as time goes on and particularly with the worry about the south african variant of the virus that you might be getting code anti escape or antibody escape and you might need to redesign the vaccine with a new spike protein. In which case. Probably the fis are and moderna. Vaccines are going to be more flexible to do that. And they say we can do that within six weeks so it's not much it's not so much by varying the vaccine technology because the vaccines are all targeting. The same part of the virus

Interview With Penny Powers

"Thank you very much penny for joining me and q. Barb in the rest of the special interest group for the invitation so we will have some general questions to begin with. How long have you been a therapist. I have practiced for forty five years. Wow that's quite a quite a career. At what point in your career did you become interested in assistive technology or in specialized wheelchair provisions after. I practiced a of years I received an invitation upon returning from china and adopting my second daughter Here at vanderbilt. I was offered the invitation to help out if you will in the wheelchair clinic and It afforded me the opportunity to move from a back in the day. They called it sub acute practice. So i was doing inpatient practice primarily with geriatrics medically complex patients in our sub acute unit. Which they've sort of gone away and gave me the opportunity to move to an outpatient setting so a single mom with two young children was attractive. But i have to tell you gave me great pause. I asked myself repeatedly. Could i learn a new area of practice and for me it. It really was a new area of practice and certainly I had to Get out my motivation. And i said yes for which there has been absolutely no looking back and although it's trite. I'm so glad. I jumped off that cliff great. So what is your current practice setting. Can you describe where you work. And what the setting is like sure I work at the within the vanderbilt bill wilkerson center which is Interesting are Hub for speech language and hearing sciences. And i work in the neuro rehab hub for the vanderbilt university medical center which is called the pie beta fai rehabilitation institute. And if it sounds like a sorority. It is because the pie fis gave the seed money to start this clinic and they are tremendous supporters of this clinic. The clinic did not start out just a little historical perspective. The clinic did not start out here. The clinic here at vanderbilt was part of rehabilitation services and started again. Hold onto your hat. In nineteen eighty five and so it really was on the forefront and so started in one thousand nine hundred eighty five but in two thousand five the department of rehab services which had Come under the umbrella of orthopedics divorced us and as part of the divorce agreement i brought the adult seating and mobility clinic And i say Pi beta phi. Me and jenny. Robertson took the pediatric component or division of the clinic to one hundred hoax. And of note. I think that really was a fait accompli. In that is everybody knows. A children's hospital wants everything pediatrics. So i think that part was a fait accompli. But i moved here to define two thousand five. We've been going pretty strong since then

What have we learned from the Pfizer vaccine rollout?

What have we learned from the Pfizer vaccine rollout?

"So i know in that. Within the last few weeks and month there's been millions and millions of devices of coronavirus vaccines going into people's arms. All around the world and one of the front runners as we talked about in detail yesterday. Is the fires a shot. So when we've been looking at things in a clinical trial setting get an idea of safety and efficacy and all of those other scienc- words now that we've seen this thing rolling out in millions and millions of people globally. What extra detail do we now have about. Especially the sizes shot just to really tease that out. A little bit from what you said is the trials have been done on an average of maybe forty thousand people which means twenty thousand people get the vaccine twenty thousand people gates the placebo. All that tells you is does it work and is it safe. In twenty thousand people compared to placebo. So what happened. In in the phase three trials of pfizer moderna and astra is that they showed effectiveness to a varying extent and they showed that there were no serious side effects and therefore good to go to approve and release over. There are more daughter to balut tat. Which is what's happening here in australia. So that's to but rare side effects are only going to emerge after the trial just rare side effects but side effects where in the real world. You're not as selective as you are on the trial so a good example of that with pfizer. Thanks seniors the in their trial. They did not recruit people who had a history of nfl shock of severe. And what happens when it was released. One of the components almost certainly was causing antic shock and people who are susceptible and therefore. Now there'd be very careful about fis are and allergy and people with nf alexis. Let's assume for example that the norwegian norwegian cases of these frail terminally ill. Let's assume that that is linked to the vaccine. Oh vet still a question as we record this corona cast then what might happen as a result of that is even. If it's just precautionary you might say. Look people who are over. Eighty five frail and if you think that they might die in the next few months. Don't give them this vaccine just to be so you kind of refined the indications in other words the group of people for whom this gets the you get the vaccine and it's really only possible when you re rolling out to millions and millions of people and might be a one in a million side effect which is really really serious which you can't avoid by refining. Who gets it award in which case the vaccine might have to be ceased and move on to another vaccine and those are the things that you learn as you move on now. The good news as we said last week on krona cast. Was that when you look at. Israel still not being published but if you look at israel where they got really great electronic records that are integrated and they compare the people that they've immunized with the people yet to be immunized it looks as though there's reduced transmission which is really the the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for these vaccines. So you're in good things and you things that are maybe problems and It's unprecedented that within a year of this infection hitting we've not only develop vaccines and trialed them that they're now have been given to maybe twenty million people a lot of which has recorded in good electronic databases so that you can get onto this post marketing surveillance. I mean some drugs for example. Take years to find these side effects. And sometimes they're missed for years because doctors are really lousy at reporting side effects. And then you find the find the might this way. They're going to be find out much sooner more effectively and be able to find out whether it is coincidence or really attached to the vaccine

France takes careful vaccine approach to counter skepticism

"Happening. I in britain in america that simply because of the regulatory approval prices european medicals agency hadn't quite finished its testing. It wanted a bit more data onto the study studies little bit longer. And so the vaccination has been approved by the block and will be rolled out by the block in a unified effort. Yes what happened. Is that the eu father. European commission has set up a central purchasing arm which has bought roughly two billion doses. Vaccines from many different manufacturers. Among advantage of this system is that because of the enormous purchasing contracts the prices sometimes been a bit lower than in other places and having bought them as they become delivered they will be handed out to the european member states strictly in accordance with that population. And how about that sort of national level roll out how. How is that progressing. Already how do you see it. Progressing future well. The interesting thing will be with the benefit of hindsight to see what the best way of doing this. Every country is doing it in a slightly different way so for example in bulgaria. Medical workers got it first in germany and learns the very old. I in the czech republic. The prime minister andrei bobby. Scott i now he is himself ferry olden and somewhat overweight and probably did need to have the vaccine but he clearly jumped the here on the other hand. You could argue in countries. there's liable to be a bit suspicious of vaccines. It makes sense to have a high profile vaccination of a public figure because there's a fair bit of vaccines skepticism around this a great deal of vaccine skepticism around france according to the polls is one of the worst offenders here and they routinely i. I've seen number sang as high as forty percent of french. People say that they want to have this vaccine. And so all of this discussion is predicated on the biotech vaccine. But others are in the pipeline. I mean how do you see that playing into the dynamic here. Yes of course. The one that people are most interested in is the oxford astrazeneca. one because it's far cheaper than others typically costs about two two dollars rather than twenty dollars a day. Spur but patsy for more important it can be stored at normal temperatures. The fis vaccine have to be kept very cold temperatures indeed so it means the vaccinations can really only take place in hospitals or well-equipped centers. And it's much harder to get out into communities. There's a french well made by sun. Ofi which i'm sure will be pushing very hard to to get rolled out sued the other ones too including some wants from china and russia which some countries in europe a key to take because they're cheap and because they may be available but i don't think they will be very widely taken up and on that matter of availability. How is that unified distribution effort playing out eu solidarity over the purchase and distribution of vaccines is a bit of an issue. The european commission wanted this to be a great european project with everybody following the rules and the commission doing all the buying and selling the prices and having it out to everyone. And i think they sorts. I'm afraid to say as a great sort of propaganda coup if could pull it off and they more or less have pulled it off. But we've seen impatience in a number of countries germany in particular who say hungary actually one or two others. They're worried that the eu hasn't bought enough of the first one available. That's defies the vaccine said. They have bought their own supplies. That is very bad. In a way the whole reason why the eu went down the suit in the first place. Was i difficult to keep prices life but also to make sure that you didn't get into a situation where every country was bidding against each other by much more than it needed so there has unfortunately been a bit of that but on the whole the system seems to have worked pretty well. I think the biggest problems actually would. These drugs are log to be availability so much as ability to actually get the stuff out that and with that in mind then do you think that. This approach has increased european unity or just given more opportunity for divisions to arise. I think on the whole it's been a plus for the e you sort of as a central organizing principle that that seems to be pretty much the way the singers in brussels they see this as a bit of a triumph that they got everyone more or less to the start line more or less the same time. There's been a bit of teaching but not too much. The interesting thing will now be. Do they use this as a way to build up further. You wide healthcare competences. So will it be more of this coordinated by will be be more of this planning for pandemic preparedness and for instance declaring health emergencies on an e. You roll the leaving it to the national governments spaces. So yes i mean. The bureaucrats in brussels never miss an opportunity to build their empire fair enough. That's the business that they're in. And i think that if this goes well that will have helped that person long a bit and as opposed in in any case getting these things out and to the people throughout europe couldn't have come soon enough we all really at a very very bleak point in the even lucien of the pandemic in the second or even third wave. I've had three hundred fifty thousand people in the eu. Already dad's up. The death rates in germany are close to a thousand today that set the whole phenomenon of creating and manufacturing and distributing vaccine in under a year is pretty remarkable. We lose sight of that. But it's still been an awful awful tragedy.

Covid-19 vaccine: First person receives Pfizer jab in UK

Covid-19 vaccine: First person receives Pfizer jab in UK

"Well. Biontech and pfizer's landmark coronavirus vaccine has been given to the first person in the uk as part of a mass immunization program. The uk's vaccine roll it is being watched keenly across the rest of the world has other countries begin. Prepare to vaccinate their own populations for the latest on this. Let's talk to our health and science correspondent. Dr chris smith. Chris is also consultant for all the gist at cambridge university. I good afternoon. Chris tyler so i guess So far so good at least we have. We have a soundbite already. We had at the top of the program from this ninety year old woman. Who's been there the first to be to vaccinated chris last week. We saw a little bit of Chest thumping on the part of some politicians the uk saying look. This is great The uk is steaming ahead. How eagerly he would you say not. Just the immediate neighbors across this side of the channel but around the world are going to be watching. What are they going to watching. Forty you think over the coming days and weeks as this rolls out well think it will be a confidence boost to those other countries because no one likes to be i they unless it's a shorty. A dead cert. There's always some risk with any kind of intervention. And this is no different. So having a regulator a regulator that's world renowned the jewelry the medicines and healthcare products regulatory agency. Which is the. Uk's regulator which prior to just having jurisdiction over the uk walls prior to the brexit transition kicking providing that service for the whole of europe. Now europe does that through the ama it. It gives a precedent that other countries can look to and say right. Okay one fairly ferry. Big actor has gone ahead with this nathan. It's good therefore we're happy to Gives us some confidence too. So i think that there's always that aspect to it and it's coming good for the uk in the sense that it saying here we are. We've had a pretty rough time with this. But now some some fantastic triumph of sciences kicked in and we're about to start deploying this across the country and we're gonna we're gonna protect our outpatients. We have this type of approval from a respected Player how much do agencies elsewhere of course within the eu and obviously similar bodies all over the world. how much does it short circuit For them as you said. It establishes a precedent And does that mean that you have you know days or weeks then knocked off the process. Of course he. I'm sitting here in switzerland. Obviously a lot of talk as well about of course is also on the uk as well so does it actually then really prevent And and and and you do you have a moment where you have a real series of time locked off. They'd process well. The europeans are considering this through the jurisdiction of the ems the european medicines agency but the uk is still subject to a you know and in the uk is used one particular rule which is a regulation one seven four which is a specification for in public health crisis. Or emergency you can. Emergency approved something for use in your particular jurisdiction so the nhra has used that to approve this for the uk. Any other country in europe could've done the same thing so it's quite interesting that they've actually decided to white on a broad overarching decision from the a. But it doesn't matter. Who your regulator is they have to meet the same checks and balances. Because at the end of the day they all the gateway between a manufactured product and the public who going to receive it and it's on their neck that the decision rests so then going to say a will. They did it so we'll kind of ignore with this stuff would just sign it off. They are going to apply wherever they are in the world the same rigorous checks that they would apply whether or not someone else regulated something but it does help to give them confidence and he gives them a bit more political impetus when they see that. Another major regulator has taken a product which is also going to be wheeled out in that particular country and said well you know what's good enough is enough the ganda over the past few weeks. Of course astrazeneca moderna in this case. Biontech visor they. They've all been popping up in the headlines. Chris and of course various speeds that of course these approval processes have been working at now. We have three vaccines. We're we're now told her that there might also now be a fourth which is very much in play might be getting closer to approval. How different are all of these in terms of effectiveness and and do they all function largely the same way or do you. Also because obviously many countries that are hedging their purchasing all of them. Am i going to be particularly concerned. In a couple of weeks. If if i choose to get the moderna vaccine versus the astrazeneca versus the by pfizer one. In fact i think the uk has go options in on seven different vaccines and yes. You're right three of them are nearing the finishing nine in the uk but there are many others waiting in the wings around the world. There are ten different types of vaccine the work in ten different types of ways or being generated a more than forty and now in advanced stages of clinical trials. So pretty soon. We're going to have more vaccines than we can shake a stick at up to a point. That's a good thing and it's a good thing because not vaccines are going to be suitable for all people not vaccines are going to be available to all people not vaccines are going to work in all territories and what i mean by. That is if we take the fiso vaccine as an example. This needs to be kept at minus seventy degrees until five days or so before you're going to use all nine hundred and seventy five doses that are in batch and i've just seen a letter go from medical director saying can we make sure that we we use all nine hundred seventy five days in a within the five days so that we don't waste any of this very precious vaccine. Now that's going to be no use whatsoever in some countries where they don't even have a stable. Electricity supply let alone a stable minus eighty degrees freezer. So therefore having lots of options is a powerful thing also We don't know what the long term outcomes with these vaccines against be. We know that they provide pretty high level of protection but short after the vaccination program is finished in other words in in the weeks to a month or so. The person's completed the vaccine course. They're protected with the fis vaccine to the level of about nine hundred ninety five percent. But what happens in five months. What happens in a year. we don't know. And it may well be that other products that come along are able to confer a longer term protection. They might confer a big boost if you give one of those on top of one of the other products. This is a learning process. We're going to be sort of going through this process as time goes on an. It's always good to have more options. Where this sort of things concerned. If if your project yourselves twelve months twenty four months out do you think we also end up in a place because of because of cost because of stability many other things that they're only going to be potentially to vaccines. Is that the way things often go. The other ones might be effective but they might be too expensive as you said they might be too volatile and they fall by the wayside. I so i guess what i'm getting at. Will there sort of a clear winner in all of this in terms of one of the players and obviously the concoction that that ends up within the syringe. Well it's hard to say. I mean you know it's like niels bohr. Who is the forefather of quantum mechanics. Said prediction is very difficult especially when it concerns the future. But it's it's going to be very hard to know because we don't know what the long term outcome with these agencies. They are expensive. These genetic vaccines that pfizer. Madonna offering all pricey the astra zeneca vaccine. Which is still sitting with the regulator here in the uk. At the moment that one will be much cheaper and is also much easier to deploy and store so that there are pros and cons of all these things and it may not come down to simply a case if this one does this and this one does this therefore two horse race. I think we will definitely be a market for a few of these products whether or not. That market's going to be sufficient to sustain all forty plus of the clinical trials that are going on now but but certainly while the world is rushing to get this stuff in sufficient volume. Because that's the issue at the moment the companies just can't push it out the door fast enough the moment it's any partner storm so people are desperate to access whatever vaccine they can as fast as they can and just before we go chris any sense. When you're maybe discussing with your medica- medical call leaks. What the uptake is is going to be. I was talking to a doctor at the university hospital here in zurich the other day his defense was that you know probably just within the hospital owned probably fifty percent of the staff. You know would not be interested in taking the vaccine. Is that sort of a a pretty good gauge. In terms of how the public will look at this. Or if you're not in the medical trenches all day maybe you're going to be keener to take it any any house view from your side. I'm sensing quite a degree of what we dub vaccine hesitancy based on the questions that are coming into various radio programs on participating in basic enquiries from members of the general public and if you look at the day to this come out of the pew research center in america have been running a number of population surveys in the states and originally that was very alarming showed that fifty percent of people would reject a vaccine offered one at that point in time. They recently repeated that survey found that in fact the uptake had risen to fifty from fifty to sixty percents so in other words forty percent. Turn it down. But that's still forty percent. Turn down right now in the uk. We think it's probably going to be Less than that but at the same time still a significant proportion of people are uncertain citing rapid production very rapid approval. As a reason for concern. I do think this is largely going to take care of itself though because what will happen is that because of the way in which these vaccines are being rolled out to high priority high risk groups. I with a trickle down into the younger echo lonzo society over time by the time many of the people who live in countering who is saying. I'm nervous about this. Come to be offered a vaccine. It will have actually been through a very significant proportion of other people and that may well have in still quite a bit confidence into people are safe track record by then so i think it may be one of those short term problems. The actually takes care of itself. That's what i'm hoping anyway. Chris thanks very much for that. That was monocled health and science. Dr chris smith.

U.K. becomes first country to approve Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine

"The uk government appears to be trying to use the news that a covid vaccination has been licensed for use in this country to create good pr around brexit but england's health minister matt hancock who claimed fast tracking the pfizer vaccine was only possible because the uk was able to act outside of european union. Regulations has been firmly contradicted by the chief executive of the h. r. a. the body that handled the process. Well joint for more. On this by vincent mcilvanney. He's a political reporter and one of monocle twenty four regular contributors. Welcome back to the globalist vinnie. Can you tell us how. The story unfolded i. We had the great news that the vaccine had been licensed then matt. Hancock really dived into controversy. That's i think there was a genuine needle relief and celebration yesterday that the government made this announcement and they'd obviously planned this. Kathleen they have. The scientists going through detail televised press conference yesterday morning just to the public in very layman's terms. How the vaccine had been approved what it would do how it would be rolled out and then we have prime minister's questions where boris johnson and stone had a pretty friendly about They did simply questions about how the rollout would happen. it was. It was quite a public education session then in the afternoon the government seem to trip over itself They started to say. There was a bit of pushback from the germans at the brit. Saying that this was you know a real day for british signs that this was great for. They don't this and then. My ankle comments on braxton. Also jacob re smog sang we could only approved vaccine so quickly because we've left the eu last month we change regulations vaccine didn't need eu approval which has slower and this ready then lead them into problems because that has been debunked has been fact checked by various organizations to say that. That's not the case. It was actually permitted under eu law And that was the point. Made as you mentioned by the head of the ease at medicines regulator on wednesday that this states could act unilaterally and false tracking it. So it's very strange that they have tried to do something which shouldn't be political. Shouldn't be kind of you know doused in one camp or another particular when it comes to leave or remain when it comes to brexit which is still divisive issue here in the uk at a point where we still don't have a brexit deal and then negotiations are ongoing to try and sully it somewhat by putting it in minds of some of the public with brexit is not a good idea and as you say germany took exception to this. Yes they did. They perspective said quite rightly in this european achievements. And perhaps the british government's if they done this. I with the oxford astra zeneca vaccine something which we expect to happen in the next ten days or so then they could claim you know a real big moment for british science and claim that the own but to claim that this landlocked. Because you've fast track vaccine that was developed at the over. The you know in the comfort. And that's gonna be coming from. Belgium is a bit of a strange move by the government. This is the government absolutely desperate for some good news. We have the worst death figures in europe and yesterday was another six hundred forty will so debts in the previous twenty four hours we the west infection rates and so you know they are really desperate now to make sure that they can trump it some of these achievements as their own and i notice. Boris johnson appear to roll back a little bit when he was asked about it later and he talked about international efforts and really quite successfully dodged the question. Yes he did. i think he knows. And perhaps the scientists said got to them that you cannot tie this to to brexit something. That is incredibly divisive and that pass. It wasn't true you know. There's enough missing formation going on about of cave nineteen vaccines that. The government really shouldn't be contributing to it and this something that she came up pm cues and the prime minister sort of echoed that said labour had put out last month and m seems the government will be moving forward that there will be some kind of penalty and fines in put in place to stop the misinformation and the spreading of anti vaccine summation on social media and on the social media platforms themselves. Something that they will have to watch out for. We're waiting for details on that still but it's not a good idea that the government would be putting out false information itself on that same day. Of course this isn't the kind of stuff damaging stuff that we're seeing spreading conspiracies about what the vaccine will do to you. But it's still doesn't help you sell your message somewhat. Absolutely i mean this. I suppose was an attempt just to trumpet. britney's truly global. Yes to trumpet global britain. Something that trying to do. It's also you know the final few days really off. The brexit negotiations going on central london images lost night if boxes and boxes of pizza being delivered to the negotiators so they won't see talking late into the night prisoners facing a real problem and i think part of why the government probably wants pasta quickly. Is that if by the end of this week. We don't have a deal. One becomes very unlikely and so at the end of this month. The uk will leave the european union now. All countries have struggled with their economies. Jerry the pandemic but imagine the double whammy in twenty twenty one of britain also suffering the effects of that no deal brexit. We know that it would be hugely detrimental to the economy and so britain than any country around the world needs to get its workforce vaccinated. Needs to have them feeling confident. Needs the well to think that this is a place that you can come and trade and do business in because it's safe and they need people back out there as much as possible working and so the vaccine really is so critical to be rolled out here to make sure that life can get back to as much as normal as possible because the economy is facing this double threat unlike any others around the well. The yes are repercussions in europe full brexit but not to the extent of the areas here in the uk. I mean the prime minister has warned that there may be logistical problems. Getting the vaccine out particularly to care homes. Yeah that's right. And i think we have to look at the separate vaccine. Say of the fis at biotech. One has very specific needs so has to be stored at just under minus seventy degrees centigrade and has a lifespan of about a month as well and so they don't want basically it cannot be moved again so we're getting the first eight hundred thousand off the forty million order coming from belgium in the next few days. Now that number you have to divide it by two. Because you need to inoculation say britain's ordered forty at that means twenty million people can be vaccinated and the clock is ticking to make the most of that investment in this vaccine to get it to the most critical people but because of the coach storage requirements. It seems that they're going to need to put it into key. Sentences rather than sending out in small batches perhaps to you know local pharmacy. Or a cabaret miss. They thought they would. So what will happen is it will go to places like hospitals where they have that cold storage than going to put it into centers so the nightingale hospitals that have been built and also places like sports stayed the emc. Say think as well in those kind of facilities and instead of bat say you have in town eight also cathodes instead of the vaccine going in small batches of the cabins because of these requirements on the storage. Because it doesn't like they moved too much you will instead means academy ten dis on trips to those senses to the hospital in order for them to get inoculated. Have to do that twice at intervals of two weeks. And after the second vaccine injection seven days later they will then be a not some killer's this they will then not be able to for the effects that there's a slight effects of the vaccine it's being described as a bit like hanging over by some participants in the study. But you will then be guarded against covid nineteen but they used the is one for the most critical people.

River Ecosystem Restoration Can Mean Just Add Water

"In the eighteen hundreds many rivers in the American West were diverted for irrigation or damned for generating electricity. So rapidly, expanding cities began tapping into groundwater, add climate change into the mix, and you can see how an already arid desert can become even more parched the banks of the Santa. Cruz river in southeastern Arizona were described in eighteen fifty five as covered with poplars and willows, ashtrays, and plantations, oaks, and walnut trees. But essentially later the river was gone but the original river of to the written here ecologist Michael Bogan from the University of Arizona. Seventy years after it ran dry, the city of Tucson decided to release treated wastewater back into the riverbed around two point eight, million gallons. Each day Bogan went to participate in the festivities when the valves were opened in June twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, and everybody was know around water and excited that the water back in the river and what I immediately got by wake was the number of dragonflies that I was seeing within a few hours Bogan counted seven different species of dragonflies. He even saw dragonflies and Damsel flies mating and laying eggs at a river. The had not existed earlier that day. So I was like Oh my gosh and I needed studied this. This is so cool that. are coming back so fast just three months later bogans team had documented roughly the same abundance and diversity of dragonflies that they'd seen in other parts of the river that have been flowing for years also abundant were may FIS cactus flies? These invertebrates are indicators of a healthy aquatic ecosystem. The results are published in the journal Peer J important. Out Water to go systems, the species will find a way to get back there If you just put water back into the systems that we've dried up and the longer you can put water the more water you can put in gas that's great for creating a more diverse habitat, no more greater abundance CDs but really the simple answer is is just that water and all reacted you to to restore a lot. Still, this is a manufactured ecosystem. It's not as if this artificially charged river is identical to the natural one that existed a century ago we like to call them managed ecosystems on because they are you have a lot of aspects species are coming in are on their own, but they rely on this case. Few Song some water for releasing that water without city doing that they would have nothing Bogan calls on urban planners and other city officials to collaborate with ecologists and Biologists to maximize the beneficial effects of bio-diversity while still achieving the goals of urban development.

"Six ninety. I just want to address something that you said last hour that the media talking about the conspiracy theories, but, you know, that, that, that is being that Republicans are throwing back when they talk about the dossier, and, and, you know, Russian collusion as we've said, we go by the Democrats definition of, of collusion by the Democrats definition of collusion. They're the ones that colluded with the Russian right? You know and, and. The, the crimes whatever. But somebody hit me on that the other day forgot about this last week. When we were we were talking about Muller, what is possible? Motivations would be for. So obviously being a political hack. And that's the question there that he was obviously, it wasn't a it wasn't subtle. It might be subtle to that. The, the average personal knows nothing about the law, and how the law works, but if you have a basic knowledge of law, you knew what he did when he gave that statement last week. You knew that was political hackery game. Knew it, and you and I used them of it after the Muller report when he clearly because we said, look, if you're an investigator for looking at it from an investigative mind, and that's how we've tried to look at all this, take the politics out of it. Look for the evidence, and, and so if we were a democrat would be upset Muller, didn't go down the FIS around, because the Democrats still believe many Democrats believe the Trump still colluded with the Russians within. Why aren't you furious at Muller? For not going to write to the where the best evidence, apparently was of Trump colluding, which was the application for the Fiso warrant. Right. Why didn't why didn't he go down that route? Well, we've asked that question why he didn't go down that route? And then and this is where it was called. You guys are promoting conspiracy theories said, no, we're asking a question of dots. That haven't been fully connected yet, but all may play a role because they all relate to somehow defies abuse. And this is where we're looking. What are the possible reasons that Muller was such an obvious hack last week? You know why, why did he take this on why was he a political hack last week? Some of the things that he said, and why didn't he going on the FIS the warrant route because that's what the best evidence would have been to convict Trump. Right. If you believed that he you were looking for evidence he committed collusion and we said, because it would have brought them right back to the Hillary campaign. He's look he doesn't operate in a vacuum. He knows that. But the other reason we said was, and this dot has not yet been connected, but they're all things that are interrelated to fight. Abuse. And that is the FIS court in April of twenty irks of twenty or twenty seventeen twenty sixteen twenty seven twenty seventeen rebuke, veal bomb administration in the FBI and the department of Justice for violating the rights of American citizens in the FIS warrant process. Now we know part of it was done in the intelligence agency. We don't know what the entire thing is. We don't know because most of it was redacted. So we don't know. But as we said, in the FIS warned process you have, including the FIS warrant process, the intelligence agencies, the beyond the department of Justice warrants. And as as we all know what, what Qomi said. Oh, yeah. Fis warrants or so where, you know, we know what's going on there being issued? It's not like a regular warrant, you know, inside of some local federal, you know, attorney, you know, a, a district attorney, or, or federal attorney, where you might not know all the warrants are getting for somebody who might have committed a federal crime in that particular district. Suffice award everybody everybody atop knows it's going on suffice to warrant for a campaign. Absolutely. Everybody knows about it, because you'd wanna make sure that you cover this with your superiors. Correct. And, and so we ask the question. Because it's a question that has to be asked when there's such obvious political hackery in what is supposed to be a legal report. And we said is Muller, worried because the FIS unwarranted, Beauce goes back to twenty eleven twenty seven to two thousand thirteen Muller was at the I you know, head of the now, again, we're not making any accusations were asking the question questions as to how investigators would look at it. And we believe were justified, especially with these people who have promoted a conspiracy theory and continue to do so. And I include Muller in that with their Mahler report for the last two and a half years. But we're not promoting any type of conspiracy theory were asking the questions based on all things that are relevant to abuse, and things that are known when men are known yet in April twenty seventeen that report from Sarah Carter John Solomon at circa, when they were both at circa demonstrated the court documents from October of twenty sixteen. Where it was made. The because they revealed those documents as part of the report that, that was made public that the fives, court was rebuking the Obama administration, Justice department going back to twenty eleven again, as you pointed out just a moment ago. We don't know why we have no idea what they're talking about. We we know part of it was intelligence how they identified identified people net goes to the intelligence agencies. And so that goes back to twenty eleven which connects directly to what we well, we do know the intelligence agency by that. We don't know how much the FBI and the department of Justice, we don't know what blame the FIS court put on them. Right. And we know they did go after and some what we do know that was unredacted that they did go after the intelligence agencies, you know, for not following the, the, the different FIS laws, when it comes to identifying going after, you know, and finding out who people are right by mass. Phone numbers. You know whatever the unmasking. Process there now we don't know what else they did. We don't know if it was the FIS if the FIS application process was included in that. But when you're talking about five abuse in one case, and then this person who is supposed to be looking at all Russian interference, which would lead you to the five of us when he doesn't go there. And then, you know that his was the FBI director from twenty to twenty thirteen win the FIS accord rebuke, which is part of the time line of the Pfizer court rebuked, in the Obama administration. You have to ask the question is there, something there, if you're going to do it from an investigative mindset. We're not claiming any specific wrongdoing at all right? We're saying what could possibly motivate Muller to give such an absolutely blatant partisan statement and report? On Russian collusion. That's we're asking what the possible motivation would be, is it just hate? It could be. Political motivation is and, and the distrust and hatred of a person that could be it. That there was zero mishandling of, of Justice when by the part on the part of Muller himself. Yes. When he was at the director or it doesn't, or it leads to something else, or because the question would be was there a pattern of behavior here, twenty eleven sorry, that's just like this year, a year before, a major presidential election. And so was that. I mean we go back to the IRS the, the whole thing, the Los learner stuff and the and the tea party and yet and what we said, then was look because remember on that one. It was well it was just too. It started out just two. Rogue agents and Cleveland or something we said, well, well, well, well, okay. We at that point, couldn't connect dots and say, well, this happened that didn't happen or this person knew, and that person was directly involved. We couldn't say any of that what we could say is or question was the tone that was set the culture, the culture that was defined in the administration. Because sorry. But if you're going to organize and mobilize those are the words they use. If you're going to organize and mobilize, that's not just about getting people to the polls on election day. That's about having a very deliberate set of actions as a part of said culture in the administration. Again, we can't condemn anyone legally. But the question I think, is valid question in this case, we can say that we have documents that opened the doors to many questions will there, there's nobody debating the FIS abuse report on the democrat or Republican saw. No. We just don't know the specifics, but we do know the time line is twenty eleven to twenty sixteen. Right. And so, again, what we have to ask and remember during the whole thing when we talked about the, the beginnings of the, the Russia investigation, and all of that, there were number of people saying, well this, this could go back to twenty fifteen right? Some of this behavior could go back to twenty fifty well, gee, just like twenty fifteen twenty. Nineteen just like twenty eleven you're talking about the year leading into a major presidential election. And that's significant because if we're talking about the Justice department being organized and mobilized in order to spy on the opposition in order to know what they're doing. Then what could we be looking at? Potentially. We'd be looking at and here's here's here's another thing that I need to throw in. And again, we have no idea. But on election day, twenty twelve. Some of the things that the some of the tools that the Romney campaign was using failed them. Now again, I have no idea it could be. And there's nobody making the charge. No one on the right? No one with the Romney campaign. No one saying that they believe they were hacked or anything else. But there were a lot of things that didn't jive in the twenty twenty 'cause it leads to the questions. Look at it if there's nothing there than don't make something out of nothing Mr. bar, or anyone else. But if there is something there than Justice must be pursued do want to bring up about Muller's. We, you know, we go tot of the of abuse from twenty seven to twenty sixteen. But remember, the deal was cut in twenty eleven because the of course, we're concerned the Obama administration previous to twenty eleven was not following the rules and regulations. And so they wanted to make sure and they clarified and they made a deal with each other. Robert Muller was also FBI director, right before that, right. So again, it may not have any do with the FBI. But when you see such an obvious. Political hack job. That was done that anybody. You know, when we played Sydney Paul, the former who wrote the book on, on the, the, the rot inside of the Justice department licensed ally, other former federal prosecutor, we played earlier when it's so obvious to people like her, when it's obvious to just people who have an elementary knowledge of, of law, and you look at it. You say, wow. This is just this is just political hackery. You have to ask yourself. Why is it just hatred for Trump or is there more is, is, is he tried to hide something does is he worried about all of his friends is he worried about Komi is he worried about people that, that he you know, that, that he worked with Brennan, and other people is there a is there a concern because? There were other things that were going on that we actually know were going on. We just don't know if he was involved in them or not. But he was in the highest levels of law enforcement, which is part of the FIS warrant process to begin with, at that time, the question has to be asked because of, we're asking it bars asking. And it must be pursued was this a pattern of behavior, maybe it wasn't maybe it was totally unrelated. But that question I think you have to satisfy with a solid answer. Eight six six ninety redeye. I.
