Producer Andrew and Dr. Keith Rose Discuss Bill Gates' COVID Response

"I want to play another clip for a Bill Gates here from that same talk he was giving. That's just cut one. Let's go ahead and play it and we'll react to it after that. Cut one. It wasn't until early February when I was in a meeting that experts at the foundation said, there's no way, you know, this there's been too much travel without diagnosis for us to contain this. And then at that point, we didn't really understand the fatality rate. We didn't understand that it's a fairly low fatality rate. And that it's a deceased mainly of the elderly kind of like flu yeah, so glad we didn't overreact, right? Doctor Rhodes. Well, I just appreciate the fact that Bill Gates and his experts as soon as they realize that there was no way to quote contain this came out and said that lockdowns weren't effective in that, let's not crush the economy. Let's not cause an increase in drug use and suicides. Let's not destroy jobs. Let's do something different. It's interesting. He talks about it. And if you're watching talk, he's just kind of rattling off the top of the head like there were no consequences to this. No, it was his group that funded the IHME that gave us these bogus projections in the beginning that forced all the lockdowns that said there were going to be millions and millions of deaths. So Amelia culpa two years later, I mean, it's not even to me a culprit's like, oh, I guess we got it wrong.

John O'Neill: Stalin Started Bioweapons Lab, Still Existent Today

"What the book does is it starts with the real way this came about is Stalin started with literary poisoning He started with secret poisoning using anthrax and he would target individual people and kill them And he thought this was such a great thing He started a huge bioweapons facility still in operation Today under food at saratov and the Soviet Union west of east of Moscow and another one in kattenburg and in the urals These both leaked just described in the book The one of you Chapman killed over a thousand people and they blamed it on tainted meat If that sounds familiar those bioweapons labs expanded into China And in the Putin period Putin has lighted them all off again So they're in full operation Of course as the book describes in 1977 China was involved in developing a vaccine to a flu that existed only in its own lab And that leaked and what worldwide I had the 1977 flu And it was pretty much what is very likely to have happened again in Wuhan China in 2019 You're a great lawyer I start off with the idea sort of rest it's a lot of which are the same speaks for itself When you have a terrible virus that exists nowhere at all in nature and it appears right on the doorstep of a bio war lab that counts for me for a lot And then the Chinese killed the Doctor Who actually discovered it after charging with revealing state secrets Destroyed all the records as a lawyer when I get a guide destroying all the records I understand that That means that the evidence they contain is still bad that even the fact of destruction is not as bad as what you've learned from them And so we cover the Wuhan lab in the book

Dr. Robert Malone on Where COVID-19 Is Headed Next

"Different directions we could go with this, but let's start here. Where do you think the virus itself is going to go next? Do you think that future variants are going to be more like the flu and not be as deadly or do you think that we might see an unexpected variant come around the corner? Maybe a midterm variant. I hate to be that cynical, but do you think something like that might be in the cards? So you're asking me to look at the crystal ball about viral evolution. There's the trajectory that says that most viruses over time tend to become attenuated after they've moved into a new host. So that argues for more infectious less virulent. Then there's the counterpoint that my friend gert vanden bass often rises. As a concern, which is that there are some situations where over vaccination can drive a infectious viral pathogen to become more pathogenic as well as more infectious. So the ants can I select both of the above in your tube first scenarios and say time will tell, but right now we are in a situation where most of us, if not all of us have been infected with omicron, essentially have natural immunity and are relatively resistant to the current sub variant that's circulating that slightly more infectious than the original omicron was.

Bird Feeders (MM #4044)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. Two or three weeks ago I was talking about the rise in cases of bird flu, which is going to cause our chicken and turkey prices to go up because those birds are being affected greatly. But bird experts are now saying we need to do something about it to help stop the bird flu, and it's kind of weird what they're asking us to do. But I guess maybe it's not. They say, if you have bird feeders outside for the birds, or even have a bird bath, don't fill the bird bath with water and take down the bird feeders. Well, if we do that, how are the birds going to eat? They're going to have to go find their food. And yes, it's true. They're going to have a hard time finding food. But here's why that's important, because what it does is it doesn't give them a place to congregate. One bird with the bird flu coming up to a bird feeder can infect all the rest of the birds no matter what kind they are, and they infect others and they infect others and how that works. So if you have bird feeders, if you have a bird bath, you may want to take time off this year. At least for two or three months, hopefully after two or three months, we can go back to normal and everybody can put up the bird feeders and their bird baths again. Something I would have never thought to think about, but it makes sense.

The Pandemic Is Over

"I kid you not, they're still wearing masks outside. It's the strangest environment to go from New York to a place like Las Vegas, which I've done. I'm a Florida resident. It's the craziest wackiest thing to go from Florida to New York. Florida? Occasionally people have a mask on? We should respect that. We don't know what their story is. They want to be careful. Fine. Leave them alone. But you better leave alone the majority of people who say the pandemic is done. And I'm saying it today, I don't give a rat's rear end if I get canceled if they suspend me from YouTube or whatever they do. I don't care. It's over. It's over. And when you see the way Las Vegas and Texas and Florida and South Carolina, when you see normal places where people are interacting without masks, it's because they know we might get this thing? And guess what? It's going to be fine. And do people who live their lives and roll the dice and maybe have a terrible time with COVID and maybe even die. Just like I'm sorry for somebody who dies of cancer, somebody who dies of the flu, it happens, somebody who dies of any disease, my heart goes out to them, but I'm going to declare to you right here and right now, and I feel this way after living normally in Las Vegas for four days or whatever it was three days.

Bird Flu (MM #4023)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. It often seems like we haven't gotten any good breaks lately here in America across the world even over the last few years. It's one thing after another, just saw news the other day, increasing cases of avian flu, or as they now call it the bird flu. I guess you want to get down to basics. And it's affecting our chicken population. Over the last year, the cost of chicken at the grocery store has increased by 33% and it's going to get worse and could be in short supply, all because of the bird flu. And it's one of those things it's not the birds infecting themselves. It's a wild bird of some kind coming in, and affecting those birds. Now, of course, what are they trying to do with this story? Deflect the fact that the cost is going to go up, and we'll see less chicken. They do say the good news, bird flu can't be really transmitted to people. So we don't have to worry about that. They're trying to use the COVID shuffle to try to get people not to think about how high the prices are going to get. Bigger producers are seeing more and more problems with the bird flu, and it could get worse. Again, don't know why, but somebody's got to figure it out.

"One of the things that I do, you know, that Chris, we talked about as well as I wanted to share because a lot of us see us in our public roles. And for you, I don't want to skip over the facts. You got a pretty great background story. And you know, not only being an air force, B one, I believe, setting records there. You're also an author. Give us a little bit of who Chris is. All right. Well, thanks, I mean, we all love talking about ourselves, right? I'll try to be brief. So Chris is a farm boy from Utah. I wear my father's air force wings as you may see here. He was a pilot in World War II. I come from a family of ten kids. Is that not crazy? I mean, let's just remarkable thing. And my dad, as I said, was an air force pilot, he had 5 cents. I'm sorry, 6th sense and 5 of us served in the military. So like you said, Doug and like you did as well, I served in the air force flu combat rescue helicopters and then the B one have three world speed records. This is kind of cool. Including the fastest nonstop flight around the world. So I got to do some just really fun things when I was in the military. And my wife and I still consider it some of the happiest times of our lives. And kind of like, you know, as we began, you miss the people. It's those friendships that you make. That's certainly true of our air force experience. And both of us feel like it was an honor to serve. Started writing books when I was in the air force. I've written, oh gosh, I don't know. 19 or 20 books in fact, Doug. I'll put in a little plug here. My last book just came out two weeks ago. It's called the final fight for freedom. It took me about three and a half years to write because I'm trying to write about the world and the world is just changing so fast. And I think your listeners appreciate that. I mean, things that we thought we'd never see, now we wonder, hey, maybe we'll see that by the weekend because again, the world just seems to be going crazy at a rapid rapid pace.

"First. Doctor Malone, welcome to the Salem radio network. Thank you very much, mister gorka and thank you for the opportunity to speak to you and to your audience today. Well, I could spend the next hour just rattling off your curriculum vitae and your various qualifications in the scientific world for those who didn't see your hours long interview with Joe who haven't seen all the interviews you've given with my friend and my former colleague Steve Bannon. Would you mind would you indulge us for a second for those across the country for whom you are a new name just to give us a prey see of your background and your relationship, for example, to the mRNA vaccines that are so in the news currently? Well, for your audience, I have been vetted and have secret clearance with Department of Defense. I've won over $8 billion or managed them for in government grants and contracts. I typically work very closely with the Department of Defense defense threat reduction agency. Kim biodefense group and have for decades, I have been a vaccine developer and innovator for well over 30 years as when I was a graduate student, I had a series of discoveries that led to 9 issued U.S. patents and numerous international patents that include all of the core technology for what we call RNA and DNA vaccines, including the first proof of concept reduction to practice using an RNA vaccine in a mouse model to produce immune responses against the envelope glycoprotein of aids. So an aids vaccine candidate my first major contract was with as a newly minted MD intern at UC Davis was with the Department of the Navy for development of an aids vaccine. I am trained at northwestern university for my NDI hold a license in the state of Maryland. I'm trained in my graduate studies at the salk institute and UC San Diego undergraduate biochemistry UC Davis multiple research fellowships at UC Davis in the department of pathology was an academic for well over a decade reaching associate professor level at the uniformed services university of the health sciences. So that's the DoD medical school. In D.C., I have been involved in way too many outbreaks intimately. I spearheaded for DoD for quite a while. The development of their Ebola vaccine candidate, which eventually I brought murk in. It was licensed to American. It's now the licensed Ebola vaccine. I've worked on flu vaccines. I've worked on literally all the biodefense vaccines used to work under contract directly for DoD at dying port vaccine company.

"flu" Discussed on Baby Your Baby

"Is it safe for pregnant women to get the flu shot? Yes, in fact, it's recommended for pregnant women to get the flu shot. The flu vaccine is only available for people who are 6 months of age and older. So for moms to get vaccinated while they're pregnant, is the only way that they're going to be able to be protected themselves and then provide protection for their newborn child as well. Otherwise there are a few people who wouldn't be eligible to get the vaccine, but mostly that has to do with their current health status. Everybody really 6 months of age and older should be able to get the flu vaccine unless your doctor tells you otherwise. And they're pretty widely available. I mean, you can go just about anywhere these days. And get your flu vaccination, right? It's true they have flu vaccines even in local pharmacies. You can drop by and get a flu vaccine. Doctor's office, we also have a public flu vaccine clinic at parent primary children's that is open Monday through Friday 8 30 to 5 p.m. and we accept drop ins, no appointment is required. And I've even heard of some schools. I know my son's school, in particular, they're doing like a flu vaccination night. And they're kind of seeming it all around Halloween. It's called the flus and booze or something like that. And they're promoting the flu vaccination for students, which I think is great because, you know, that's sometimes that's the only, you know, the only way we can get that vaccine in our kid's arms. And so I think that's great that they're helping out with families. Yes, it is. I love that. I hadn't heard about that before, but any there's a lot of community options out there for getting your flu vaccine. Yeah, and you know, like you were saying, it's just, you know, another step that we can take to help not only keep ourselves and our families safe, but our communities safe as well. You had mentioned that we had started to possibly see a couple of cases of the flu already coming back into Utah. Yes, we have. We have seen a few cases of influenza already this year in Utah. So it's already begun to circulate. And the CDC does recommend that you get your flu shot when it's available. So now is a great time to go and get your flu shot. It takes a couple of weeks for full immunity to develop once you are vaccinated. So it's best to get it before there's too much flu going around. If you wait until influenza is running rampant in the community, you might get sick with it before your immunity develops after getting your flu shot. So think about that when you're considering the timing of influenza vaccine. Get it at least two weeks before you want to be fully protected against it. Sure. And you know, you're also saying that, you know, any sort of major flu outbreak, that could lead to other problems with providing care as well. We've already seen some RSV also and that can there can be a correlation with that between the flu and RSV and outbreaks like that, right? Oh, definitely. Once we start seeing respiratory infections on the rise, there's always a risk that we'll see more respiratory infections. And RSV is enjoying a very early surge this year. We started seeing RSV escalate in our community in July. Now typically this doesn't happen until later in the year. So in order to prevent these co infections, it's really easy to get one illness and while you're immune system is working so hard to try to get you better from that, it's not able to always fight off all the other illnesses you may come in contact with. Doing as much as you can to prevent yourself from getting sick by getting a flu vaccine and a COVID vaccine will help you from getting sick with other illnesses as well. Now, if you could look into your magic 8 ball, which, you know, that's predict in the future right now. And we're talking about RSV, and we know we saw that early surge in the summer, which is rare. Yes, very rare. Looking forward prediction wise, if you could, I'm not trying to put you on the spot. But what does that look like then come a winter? If we've already seen this early surge, does that mean maybe it's come and gone or do you think that that means it's only going to get worse come winter? I believe it's only going to get worse if you look at the data that is out there right now it is still continuing to climb. And it will continue to get worse as winter keeps us indoors more and prevents us from being outside. It's just a prime environment for respiratory viruses to be able to circulate. We spend more time with families and loved ones in close contact during the winter months. These are all the kinds of situations that lend to spread of respiratory viruses. And so because of that, once again, the importance of getting our flu shot protecting ourselves from something that we know we can protect ourselves from is crucial right now. Exactly. The flu shot in and the COVID-19 vaccine. And then, you know, we still have to remember all of the same hygiene protocols that we've been so diligent about practicing. Of course, you know, keeping our hands clean and washed and surface is clean and washed and seeing when we don't feel well. Or, you know, if our kids don't feel well, keep them home from school. I mean, we can't let those things go by the way said either. You're exactly right. And this is so important that we continue utilizing the same methods that we started with last year with COVID. Using good hand hygiene and helping our kids, utilize good hand hygiene as well. Wearing masks when the situation calls for it. Getting vaccinated against these vaccine preventable diseases. Staying home when we're ill, the interesting thing about influenza is you can become infected with influenza and start shedding the virus about 24 hours before you start showing symptoms of influenza. And that means that you could be making other people sick if you're not taking those precautions washing your hands covering your cough and you'll continue to shed that virus for 5 to 7 days after you start showing symptoms. So to be aware of that and to keep yourself and your loved ones protected, just be aware that you'll continue to shed that virus for a few days after you start showing symptoms. And that is a good reminder that a lot of people might not automatically think about when it comes to getting the flu. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. I think we tend to think as soon as a fever is gone that we can go back to work or we can go back to school. But we should be aware, especially with influenza of that continued shedding of virus that will go on for a few days after our symptoms start. Yeah, absolutely. Well, let's break it down one more time for our listeners just so that they know, you know, where they can get their flu vaccines and who is able to get them because it's really anyone.

"Our emergency departments and hospitals can get killed just with flu patients, and that doesn't leave a lot of extra room for the increasing coronavirus cases that we're expecting. This year. That's why we need people to get their flu shot. It'll help protect you. It'll help protect your family from unnecessary on this or hospitalization because it says, he said, this is something we can control with vaccination right now, and also helps our health care resource is as we continue to fight the pandemic. For anybody in particular. Who should get flu shots are kind of everybody. It should be. Everyone ate six months or over. Just like coronavirus. The flu is very contagious. So even though you may not be at high risk of complications from the flu, you could pass it on to someone. Who would have complications, but just like coronavirus, we know people who are at the extremes of life. Those who have underlying medical conditions are more likely to get hospitalized for, unfortunately die if they get infected with the flu. Or flu shots safe and and is getting one safe. Flu shots are very safe. The millions of people get flu shots every year, and they're very few complications. So We do encourage folks get a flu shot, even if they typically don't get one, because either they think they're low risk because they think they don't need to get one because they had a bad reacts in 10 or 20 years ago. This is the ticket of flu shot not only to protect yourself but protect those around, too. I'm happy to say after years of avoiding it. I started a few years ago getting one every year, and I'm glad I have and I haven't had the fluid. I know it doesn't always work, but it's worked for me so far. Yeah, And it's not 100% effective.

"Weeks i received several calls emails. Chat requests and so forth would huge concern estimate differences between both the flu virus and kobe. Nineteen now before. I dive into this discussion like to recommend that you go to. Www dot acupunctures my life dot com and subscribe to our newsletter to learn more about acupuncture chinese medicine and how you can benefit for both of us now back to the discussion at hand now somebody individuals who sent me. Emails and chat requests had stated. They knew someone who'd been recently diagnosed with corona virus as who had the flu symptoms but felt it may have been covert nineteen until they were assessed by the primary primary care physician ask to otherwise now more and more people. These days are presenting symptoms of based on self-diagnosis the flu or the corona virus and are extremely nervous in light of the present upsurge here in the united states. This is why in most of my episodes if you have any questions regarding the subject of discussion or some other path allergy. I may not be discussing at the moment. Please review some of my early episodes to see any of them may answer some of the questions you may have or you can simply ask comments section below as i read all of my comments and i would respond as best as i can now to quell some of the concerns. You guys may have the differences between these two viruses. I'm gonna go over. Seven did seven differences. In which i'm aware of and how acupuncture me help but i will say if you to feel at any point you may have been infected with either of these viruses. Please contact your primary care. Physicians as possible now when it comes to the differences between both the flu and the coronavirus number seven is speed of transmission. You see the flu. Virus has a shorter incubation period. That being the time from vaction to actual appearance of symptoms and also assured a serial interval. Which is time between successive cases than the corona virus. Now the serial interval for the corona viruses usually between five to six days whereas for the flu virus the serial interval generally around three days which means flu can spread faster than the colonia virus for an acupuncturist such as myself and invasion of an exterior pathogenic factor would be a sign of a temporary and relative imbalance between the pathogen. And the bodies protective. This usually occurs because the body's cheese either temporarily leak or the pathogenic factors superstrong now. This is why strongly recommended that you see your acupuncturist for general wellness visits periodically. No number six is to drive transmission when it comes to the flu. Virus transmission usually occurs during a pre-symptomatic to symptomatic phase which is usually three to five days while in contrast to that people with kobe. Nineteen can shed the virus within twenty four to forty eight hours prior to the onset of symptoms although this is not a major driver of transmission for covid nineteen number five has to do with the rate of secondary infections as generated from one infected individual. Now when it comes to the coronavirus it's understood that this rate is somewhere between two to two and a half which is higher than that of the flu was when it comes to influenza. It's difficult to make a comparison to context and time. Specificity number four is pretty interesting because of the individuals who contacted me were parents who were concerned as to if the children will become infected. How would they be able to determine between the two since understanding that kobe. Thousand nine hundred affects children. Different from adult first and foremost if you feel that your child may have contracted the virus. Take them to see a pediatrician. Because children can be significant drivers of the flu within community whereas initial data suggests that children less effective than adult when it comes to kobe. Nineteen now number. We has to do with range of symptoms between the two viruses which actually similar although the fraction with severe disease between the to appear to be somewhat different the fraction of severe infection for the flu virus or it can be severe is minimal in comparison kobe. Nineteen now data shows that eighty percent of kobe. Nineteen infections tend to be mild or as symptomatic upwards of fifteen percent can be severe. Where somewhere in the ballpark. Five percent tend to be critical required. Ventilation and number two is those that have more risk for severe cases of the flu. Virus tend to be children pregnant women and elderly stolz at underlying medical conditions. And let me not forget. Those whose immune systems are suppressed. Or should i say compromise due to potentially drug regimen. They've been placed on by the doctor or long long term illness whether it be viral auto mute now when it comes to the corona virus the ones who tend to be more severely impacted by this virus or the elderly and those with underlying conditioned. Get into one. Let's take a quick look at things from an acupuncture perspective. Now when it comes to both viruses. I have the first determine. If it's a wind he pathogen which in the cases influenza or if it's a warm disease pathogen such use kobe. Nineteen now in its initial stages is hard to determine whether the passage is either heat or warm disease so my approach would be to treat each case according to the principle of treatment of exterior diseases. Now let's look at the number one difference between the two viruses and that's mortality now mortality for the corona virus appears higher than that for the flu virus which is something to be concerned about. Due to the fact that colbert nineteen still a novel virus. So you feel that you may be expressing symptoms of either virus. Please contact your primary care physician immediately. And don't forget to pay your acupunctures visitors. Well those are the seven differences between the flu virus and covert nineteen. I'm aware now.

"The flu vaccine does not protect you against coronavirus, but this year it's really important to get the flu vaccine because if you do get flu, it's going to be really hard to tell flu and cold but infection apart, so it's been to result in anxiety on your part. It's also going to result in Need for testing for both flew off. Influenza and potentially quarantine and inconvenience. So it's important that you do everything you can to stay healthy and not get the flu at all. How safe is the flu vaccine doctor? There's been questions like a flu vaccine is probably the vaccine that we have used the most off over the years because everyone needs to get vaccinated against the few empty. So this vaccine has a really good safety record. It is manufactured the same way each year. What changes is the vaccine the vaccine strains of the virus strings and the vaccine are changed but the manufacturing process is the same every year and because so many many millions of doses are used around the world. We have a good sense of any safety issues with it. It's not something that's using the select population where only a few doses are given you my name. Identify a safety problem. So I would say that the flu vaccine is very very safe. And it's rigorously vetted is that correct? Doctor all vaccines in the US are regular see that then it takes anywhere from in general six to eight years for a vaccine to come to Market because of the rigorous process that the vaccines are put through to ensure that they do what they're supposed to do which is protect you against the disease and also are safe don't have any other consequences Doctor Who should be getting the flu vaccine this year everybody over the age of six months should be getting the flu vaccine unless they have an energy to a component of the vaccine which is actually very very infrequent even egg allergies are no longer considered a contraindication to the banks. So really everybody the other question that comes up a lot is timing you need to get the flu vaccine. At least two weeks prior to the onset of flu activity in your region and that can vary from place to place in the midwest. Typically if you doesn't start till about the last week in December and then it can go through the end of March. So the vaccine takes about two weeks to induce an immune response. So you should get it two weeks before so by the first week of December or so. Is there ever a time that's too early to get the flu vaccine. So for most people know you can get it as soon the flu vaccine becomes available for immunosuppressive patients and the elderly sometimes the effect of the vaccine can Wayne in six months or so. So if you get it in August, you may not be protected. In fact, that's flu is still circulating. So there's a little bit of concerned about that. I would urge people to get it when it's available. Thank you Doctor, you know, there's a lot of information out there about the flu vaccine. And misinformation. What do you want to tell folks who hear conflicting information about flu vaccine safety? There are reports in the media about bad things happening after all that scenes and the flu isn't an exception to that. We give a thousands and thousands of doses of vaccine at our medical facility and have not encountered problems. There is a very very small chance that you can have when your logic problem called Guillain-Barre after the flu vaccine this was, you know, a problem with the 1976 flu vaccine and the flu vaccines always gotten a bad drafts. And then after that the incidence of the syndrome has been very low one in every a couple of million doses. The association is weak. And other than that there are no major side effects from the flu vaccine if there's anything else that you'd think like to tell us about the flu please dead. The flu virus is a virus that is constantly evolving. It's it goes through what are called mutations all the time. So between one year and the next the Palm Terrace undergoes changes and so that's why we need to give you a new vaccine every year every year. The flu vaccine has four different strains that are collected from all over the world. And we picked the ones we think are most likely to cause infection. Wonderful. That's great information. I want to thank you doctor sampathkumar from taking time from your visit to share your expertise. Thanks so much. Thanks to me. Oh Clinic infectious diseases specialist.

I think some somewhat as should also mention this as you started off by mentioning that the paper about the HIV being inserted into corona somehow which may or may not be true. Yeah I think it's bullcrap I did get By by posting this which is nothing wrong with posting the fact that this paper exists Zero hedge got kicked off twitter. Gone Yeah I I saw that too very not not suspicious. Our Intel analysts. This is the one who Caught the the fact that a lot of the Canadians flying back from Iran We're actually work came from the university in in Canada Navia. or they're experts in nuclear technology to sent her sent me a follow up note. Here are some facts regarding the virus though actually he said he got this you know so. He's an intelligence analyst so he gets his information from sources so he says a well placed source with direct ties to mainland China China. I know it sounds a bit like a weird blog post but it was private to me and he has some standing in the show. Since the previous observation he attends his his Source Attends John Hopkins University in Nanjing China or or attended and as an alum. He still has a log onto the libraries where he drew some research. Trump's short version of what he our analysts is found out the most susceptible bowl to the N.. KAV The novel Corona virus the highest. AC Two gene structures people who contract never recover from limit. The virus becomes recessive after incubation and initial flare many of those who had an initial infection with fever and cough but without a cytokine hi sue cytokine storm. What does that John was the word cytokine storm? See why Taylor this award. I'd have to look at a Sawai T. O. K. I n. e. cytokine psychiatrist on so without site a kind storm. If you looked at it for me had showed a compromised immune immune system and recurrence of the virus. In several cases the third or fourth recurrence in the Reduced Immune response the. There's that word again. CYTOKINE storm developed. Those people died because the viruses immuno compromising any recurrences. Yes stop you aside kind aside. A kind storm is an overproduction of the moon cells yes and then. Activating compound cited kinds of which in a flu. Infection is often often associated with a surge of activated immune cells into the lungs. You kill yourself by trying to bring your body tries to protect yourself. I give some people getting you can almost self-induced asthma attack. Under certain things get released. Just the means. Then the next thing you know you're Half dead because the viruses immuno compromising any recurrences. Further further weakens the immune system the Chinese using the term airborne AIDS in describing the approach to it The patient in Seattle was given an experimental anti retroviral retroviral. After his first post infection flare fully recovered on the drug he was declared cured when he stopped the drug virus flare recurred. This is from the New York Times. January twenty second article is back in the hospital. The basic prevention is to quarantine and avoid people in the AC two gene sequence. Those people will have the highest viral load and be super spreaders yes. This is much less deadly currently than the flu virus however it has the potential to grow undetected affected at a much higher rate it has also had an impact on the global economy that has already surpassed anything flu viruses ever done. According to our intelligence analysts so the a C two gene sequences. That's something can get from twenty three and me. Can we figure that outcome. We target people now. Who have done this? I think I think this again is Han Han Chinese it probably. He has the list. It's the same list buzzkill junior probably saw with most susceptible where Americans comes comes down at the halfway down the list fifty percent so that kind of sounds a bit like something that might have been bio-engineered near who knows these thing. I mean naturally occurring substances do evolve through that too on their own and then they just have the unlucky winner. And you're a winner and you're a winner..

"Hey collide only get right to it I got to report here you made it yes there earlier about people who have had the flu shot and had never had before they got the flu one of my coworkers fifty one and never had a flu shot and we got one and basically got the flu right after that looks out for ten days or something along those lines which is kind of crazy and and you know I didn't that kind of stuck out to me my question is this is funny that you bring the stuff about the flu shot I get this letter that come home from the school for my kids today. talking about how they are going to be giving away free flu shot. mmhm knows no charge and you know it says here while I get a flu vaccine the best way to minimize the spread of flu to get an annual flu vaccination but they're telling me because. not my own personal understanding of the flu shot and see and what happens with people who get it who have never got it before that scares me I mean well the situation is as you can get the cell you can inform them that the World Health Organization saying that the the flu they planned on using for the the flu disease or the the the the the one I chose to prevent may not be the one that's going to be preventative so on that you can say I refuse or if you want your kids get a shot fine but I would say I'm very very concerned that getting the flu shot is not going to help my children because they may have allergies that things like eggs or mercury or other Jewish or in the the flu shot that I don't want to have put in their bodies and you can tell them down I'm sorry about the the flu shot I find it weird that whenever you go online you start doing a little bit of research about the flu shot from where they come from companies like Merck and the star.

Yep. It was brutal. And it's weird that it's not, you know, more recognized than it is. But hopefully, we just contributed it to being remembered forever. That's right. But we now know today because we've continued to study the flu of nineteen eighteen. Really how a pandemic can play out. And it's not like scientists forgotten. They are still studying the causes and the repercussions and what we can do better. It's really interesting. Yeah. It's fascinating is what it is by gun.

"All right. We're going to talk about what made this so deadly. In addition to the war going on at the same time. There was some other weird weird factors and characteristics of this this flu, right? We mention young and healthy people already, but it bear saying again, the death rate for people between twenty five and thirty four was really really high and conversely children were infected high a high rate is not like they weren't getting it. But they had a low mortality rate and nothing about that makes sense. Yeah. So for for the twenty five to thirty four age group, who you would think would probably be the the the the highest group of survivors. They had a two times higher death rate than the forty five to sixty four age group during the Spanish flu. Which was ancient? Yeah. Really? I mean, if the average life expectancy normally was something. In the forties to the fifties. Yeah. That is kind of ancient I would be on death's door in nineteen eighteen. Yeah. And just like with a. It's like with a a typical flu infants and the very elderly and people with compromised immune systems, they died in the greatest numbers. But when you look at that graph that there's a huge spike among like young healthy adults where they're normally shouldn't be. And there's a lot of theories about why that happened one reason is because it it was spread among soldiers. And the soldiers were starting to come home at the time. So they spread it to their wives who were about the same age. They spread it to their children spread it to their friends. So it definitely was hanging around specific age group. But they also think that there was a large amount of deaths, and that this also counts for the new Monja deaths that killed so many people something called the cytokines storm, which sounds like a terrifying to me. Yeah. That is when you have such an over stimulation of immune cell. Nls that. It just generates basically, you you drown in your own flim because of an over stimulation of immune cells, creating so much fluid like your immune system is so good. And so healthy. It kills you your immune responses, so massive, and this is the they're just starting to understand cytokines, storm, cytokines, activate immune cells. That's what causes the inflammation. The the the water on the lungs which thing gets infected by Tyrian, which gives you the Monja which can kill you, the the they're just starting to understand this. But they have linked it to the appearance of new flus that people haven't been exposed to before. And this is probably the number one reason why people who were young and healthy adults died in such numbers because their age group hadn't been exposed to any h one and one flew before. Yes. So not only was the new H new strain of h n one to their bodies. This is a brand new. Type of virus that they'd never been exposed to. And so people whose immune systems were over amped died from these Sida, keen storms..

You have serious issues if you're bleeding, unless of course, you'd like, you know, Nick, the inside of your ear with your fingernail if you're bleeding out of your ear from. Inside of your head. It's bad news. Yeah. Went to make sure I'm on the record as being having that position on bleeding out of your anti-arab leading pretty much and with the war effort like again, it's just all these things are happening at once. So it was sort of just kind of sneaking through the back door in like the worst way you could ever imagine. So this is all going on the reason we do know so much about it. And I know that it hasn't gotten all the attention of like the plague and things like that. But in the medical community at has they they weren't like all right? Well that went away. That's great like here in modern times. Like starting in the nineteen thirties. They started, you know, on the download collecting blood samples and examining tissue slides and getting either from from people who died from the bodies or from people that were still alive that survived it, and they have really been doing all this kind of cool like almost. A criminal case like this research to try and learn because you know, you can only you don't want them like this to ever happen again. Right. Right. Well, that one of the scary things Chuck is that like most people who are in public health and FD meteorology ver- al-ajiz say like this could totally happen again. And it would probably be way worse because of our connectability or how connected we are. It we probably have a greater chance of containing it. Just because of the the advances in public health that we've we've undertaken far. Yeah. But the. It could it could happen. I actually talked about this a lot including the Spanish flu. And this one biotech episode of the end of the world, and it from what I saw it. It could very well happen just about anytime. Well, this other part, I don't quite get. Does it does this train still exist or not because it was a little confusing that part? Okay. Get this to it had gone. Totally extinct it'd come and gone as we'll see it just basically maybe burn through everybody. It killed off everybody so fast that it couldn't spread any longer. And like you said flu, viruses mutate like very frequently. So also our body like if you survive of viral infection, you typically conferred immunity for the rest of your life. So the people who are left we're not going to catch the Spanish flu again. Right. Okay. So it had run run its course gone extinct so much. So that not even just the strain of flu, but all h one in one flus left human circulation by the fifties. Nineteen fifties. Somebody at the student Johann Holton who's microbiologist in the fifties. And then later on in the nineties, he went to a little town called brevity mission, Alaska, and he. Dug up the corpse of a native American woman, and then UPS woman who had died had been buried in a mass grave from the Spanish flu and took samples of her lung tissue and took it back to another microbiologist whose name I cannot remember who basically synthesize the genome of it. Okay. Great. We understand that genetically. We've got it. No. They went one step further and actually created the Spanish flu virus again resurrected it from extinction. And yes, the Spanish flu is still around because humans brought it back to life. All right. Well, that makes more sense now. I mean in one way. Right. Not not a great thing to do. But what's funny is if you depending on what you read like if you read like popular mechanics, I'd go about it's it's like this is an amazing great achievement. But for my money it was a terrible achievement..

"Yeah. I mean, we were talking about how it got overshadowed by World War One. But it may not have even happened. Had it not been for one. Yeah. Because the conditions of of army boot camp in in shuttling soldiers overseas like you were saying it's tight quarters. Like just dude stacked on each other all up in each other's faces. And it was just sort of a recipe for disaster. Yeah. While this war was, you know, not unfolding head unfolded by that point. But it was really just a confluence of factors that was really kind of staggering. Well, plus, also, you can make the case that those Kansas farm boys never would have made their way to camp Funston, and they certainly never would have made their way to to Europe. Yeah. So probably wouldn't have happened. Especially if the thing mutated in Europe and got worse the Spanish flu yet. Probably never would have happened. Had it not been for the first World War yet. The other problem was and there are a lot of factors. Why spread so quickly? But one was because it didn't really look like the flu. And a lot of cases doctors really, quite you know, they they were slow to diagnose as a flu. And then as a epidemic because a lot of people were dying from new Monja and sometime for a while they thought. It was bacterial in nature. They were coming up with vaccine's and all the stuff, and none of that was working. And so it it kinda took a long time. But even though Dr minor in Kansas was kind of ringing the bell. No, one was still paying attention. So it took a long time for them to kind of sound the alarm and say, all right. We got a real problem here. Right. And at the time they they knew that viruses existed. But they still weren't sure. What they were they called viruses filter bubble agents because they had figured out. And I think back in eighteen ninety two that if you filtered an infection through something called a Chamberlain candle which can filter out any and all back tibia, some infection still persists, which shouldn't be the case because he's just filtered out all the bacteria. So that means that there's something smaller than bacteria that they we don't really know about that can cause infection. There's some other pathogen out there. And this is the the way that they that they approached viruses. I think by the. Time the Spanish flu was still around. We knew that there was something out there. But no one had actually ever seen a virus? In wouldn't see a virus? Until I think the nineteen thirties because they're too small for optical microscopes. So they idea that this was caused by bacterial agent. It makes a lot of sense. That's what humanity had experienced in dealing with and treating. But then on top of it like you said, so many people were dying or getting the Monja that it just appeared. Like, it was a horrible bacterial pandemic rather than a viral one or typhoid or cholera like it was misdiagnosed all over the place because some of these symptoms were just unusual like bleeding out of the ears so bad when you're bleeding out of your ears..

"Josh. All right, Chuck. So let's start at what may be the beginning. There's this guy named John M berry, and he is a not Embry, by the way, his middle initials m and his last name is burying. He is in historian. He wrote a book called the great influenza, and he wrote an article based on his research called how the horrific nineteen eighteen flu spread across America on Smithsonian magazine. And this guy's done some legwork, and he has created theory that starting in about Jane ury of nineteen eighteen the beginning of nineteen eighteen there was a flu outbreak in Haskell county, Kansas which is a very rural agricultural area. And that some of those boys who came down with the same flu made their way to camp Funston, which is part of Fort Riley Kansas now. Yes, Anna Fay in particular. Was is the town if you wanna even pinpointed further in Kansas, not New Mexico. Yes. NFA Haskell county Kansas three hundred miles west of camp Funston. Yep. So some of these far boys who were sick with this flu ended up being? Rafted and sent to camp Funston, and it was camp Funston where they think the first cases of the Spanish flu started to break out that I wave happened in about the spring and then traveling over to Europe into the summer of nineteen eighteen and it wasn't that. I wasn't particularly bad. It was particularly noteworthy, and it was mostly confined to to Doboy us, basically people who worked on military bases. Well, and then may be towns near military bases. But that was about it. And then it went away, and it wasn't like had it just been that. It probably would not have been remarkable historically at all. Yeah. And you know, this we may not even know about any of this is far as its origin. And there've been a lot of other theories of the years about its origin. But this one seems to hold the most water now, but we may not have ever known anything about any of the origin. If it had not. Been for Dr lowering minor who was a great for small of a county in town. This was he was a really great town Dr. And he was like at the time flew just would come and go like I said, so it was never reported on journals was never never really a big deal never published, but Dr Lori minor was so alarmed at the rate of spread in his small town. And the how much of a wall up that it packed. He actually published his concerns in a in a journal called the public health reports journal has a different name today. But he was the only person in the world expressing concern in a believe, this is still the very first case of influenza being reported because of how like unusual and deadly that they thought it could be. Yeah, I saw that too that the very fact that this guy reported at all is remarkable. Yeah. So they kind of trace it back and say, we we now think we know we're ground zero was Hessel county, Kansas. So of from Haskell county Kansas it went to camp Funston. And then it went over to Europe. This is the first wave that we're talking about they had changed their name because it used to be we put the fun and Funston, right? And then after that, they were like, yeah, we gotta go to for Riley. So over in Europe, something happened to the to this flu immutable in some way. It did something mixed with some other flu maybe from Asia. Maybe something that was President Europe. Who knows? But there, you know, there was a flu outbreaks over there in in Europe, particularly at one called top. Think I added a little extra mustard on that? But it's generally how you say it it was a huge British camp that held up to a hundred thousand troops, and it was packed elbow to elbow in the summer of nineteen eighteen and so that definitely did help keep the flu under wraps. It spread pretty quickly. And then some of those Doboy use those American soldiers fighting in World War One who were in Europe made their way back to the United States. And so this the strain of flu that it made its first wave out of Kansas over to Europe came back, and when it came back, it was different in all the worst ways..

"That's all it says in unless you know, what's going on you might just scratch your head and say why was this series not completed that year? And the reason is because the Spanish flu literally killed one of the players and got quite a few of them sick on both sides of the Seattle Metropolitans and the Montreal Canadians. Yeah, I guess like right before the fifth game was going to be played or the six game was gonna be played. Yeah. They like four of them were in the hospital one died, and they're like, yeah. We'll just go ahead and cancel the series this year crazy. But what what is crazy is like that's pretty bad because think about it your hockey player. You're probably young you're probably pretty healthy. That's really weird to die from the flu. And that was a big hallmark of the Spanish flu as we'll see. But this was also like a third wave. This is the third like roundhouse that the Spanish fluid delivered to the global population. When the when the Stanley Cup was cancelled the NHL play. Offs was cancelled that year nineteen nineteen amazing. So us talk a little bit about flus normally, shall we? Yeah. I mean, I think everyone understands the flu is not bacterial. Like you're talking about it is a virus? And ordinarily like the flu that you have is the flu or cold. It's just like this is funk. You know what? I mean, you me, and I went to Vegas for her birthday to go see Dave Chapelle and John Mayer, and I think just being on the plane and being kinda run down and everything we both kinda picked up a little bit funk. I think it's that time of year. It's a funky kind of year. Emily, get sick every January. Yeah. I think it's also has to do with the holidays just because they're as fun in an unadulterated -ly enjoyable as they are. They're also attend stressful. Sometimes we and her that's her busy time of year for her business. Oh, yeah. It's almost inevitable that she'll get sick. Every January just like her body's fighting and fighting all through December. And then just goes literally the day after Christmas it's like sniff yet. He just crashed your gums. Yeah. So the flu virus, and in most cases, like I was saying you have the, you know, you have your aches, your fever, and you're coughing, and you're tired, and sometimes it may be affected your stomach. Som. Sometimes it may not but usually in and out in a few days, and that's sort of the end of it. If you're like, you mentioned if you're elderly or if you're a little little tiny one the flu can be pretty dangerous in any case. But ordinarily in healthy adults is just a regular sickness that comes and goes. Yeah. Especially like, if you look at, you know, a graph of ages starting at an infant all the way say two hundred year olds if you if you look at flu death it goes down in the middle. And then goes back up its high on one end. Hi on the other end, very low to nonexistent in the middle like healthy. Middle-aged in younger adults don't die from the flu. Normally, right. So there are many types of flu many strains of this virus and in nineteen eighteen for the Spanish flu, which will get to the odd naming of that in a second. It was type a subtype h one in one because they have subtype designations. And then within those subtypes their other strains cause the flu is constantly trying to outrun humans and humans trying to beat it down. Yeah. So it's like, I'm just going to change a little. Yeah. Watch this and it goes beep. Boop. Boop. And now, it's Bumblebee from transformers, exactly. So this was a genuine pandemic called the Spanish flu. And I never knew this at all. But it really had nothing to do with being out of Spain. Or have anything to do with Spain other than the? Fact that Spain was neutral in World War Two World War One. And while other newspapers around the world were really censoring things and not so free. Spain was just reporting the only country really reporting about the flu. Yeah. Right. I didn't call it Spanish flu. I didn't realize this either the Spanish where like, no, wait, wait. You guys aren't getting this..

Hope so so Chuck is kind of a pro preate that we're talking about the flu because I don't have the flu. But I'm a little sick little funky. I'm not contagious. So don't worry. Well, I appreciate you wearing the base mask. Anyway. According to this this article that Ed wrote it it. It's yeah. Useless. It doesn't do anything. Yeah. I don't. I don't know if that's truly useless as it. Yes. I think it is actually quite useless. If it's a bacterial infection, it might do something because bacterias much larger than viruses, viruses, are very very small certainly small enough to be expelled through the mash of gauze when you call for sneeze into it. He sneeze and that mass puffs out and little particles spew. Maybe just not as far. Yeah. Yeah. They might be slowed down a little bit. Who knows maybe like being pushed through a little channel speeds them up and increases their trajectory. Like, we don't know yet. Yeah. But this is flu Centric episode.

You're talking about that in some episodes and think that was what it was. So this is pretty appropriate that we're talking about this 'cause exactly a hundred years ago today, basically, the United States the world really was standing there stricken picking up the pieces of basically shattered societies all around the globe that it's just been leveled absolutely leveled by flu epidemic that came through and killed so many people made so many people sick it's widely seen as possibly tied for first. If not it's a very close second to the worst natural disaster in. And the worst pandemic to ever hit humankind in the history of our species. Yeah. That's how bad it was. And it happened just one hundred years ago. Yeah. I've seen estimates as high as fifty million people dead. Yeah. I've I've seen it up to one hundred million. I think fifty million is it used to be like the low end now or the high end and now it's starting to become clear. It's probably about the low end. I think they'll in just twenty does that right? And I'm going to name the high end five hundred million people. That's supposedly from what I've seen. How many were actually infected well possibly and not only that like. When that many people die, it, it changes the course of world history. Yeah. It changes a basically unravels the fabric of society is will see. Yeah. Side and cultures and rules and just how humans looked at the earth. Like it. It really turned the forward March of humanity in a certain direction. Definitely did. And like this. It's really difficult like this is one of the most fascinating pieces of of world history to me because it was like, it's it was it's pretty well documented because it happened only one hundred years ago, and because it's just so insane. What happened like the Spanish flu was so bad Chuck that people were dying of thirst because there was no one around them to take care of them. The people who were still healthy were so afraid of. Catching the flue? They would basically let their neighbours die alone in their homes rather than go. Help them to take care of them and give them water. Like, that's that's how bad it was like people were dying of thirst from being so laid up by the flu and not being able to get water themselves and not having anyone to take care of them. And it happened in in the United States one hundred years ago and all over the world. And despite all of this horrific thing were about to talk about the grab Stor started his article writing about hockey is from buffalo and later on like, it's the third wave that that cancelled the NHL playoffs. Yeah. I mean, it is a footnote the the Stanley Cup the reface Stanley Cup the trophy of the NHL that has all the winning teams etched into it says series, not completed. That's all..
