Tested in only one percenter positive that needs who's not a lot of out there if it's fifteen percents like it is right now. Florida. That says got a really serious problem, the viruses traveling around in a pretty unabated way, and that might not be the moment of to bring people back together in a school. Particularly as you think about the teachers and the risks may be quite act and there have been suggestions that maybe younger kids don't get infected and don't pass this on. I think the data to support that optimistic view is looking a little shaky especially after as you just mentioned this report about the outbreak in Georgia camp, where kids of all ages clearly got infected and clearly transmitted it. So those things all have to be put into the decision making for a particular school district to decide what to do. Why did testing yet so bad into difficult. Now takes a week here in Louisiana and New Orleans to get results back. We do have a serious testing issue right now with the slow tournament. The good news is we're doing a lot of testing sixty, million tests. Now, you the house which. which is more than anyplace else. The problem is the turnaround is really got backed up as a central laboratories that are doing a lot of this in Maine laboratories run by companies like quest and land for have just gotten really backed up with demands and their problems with the supply chain of things like slobs reagents. So what we really need now walter is to have more diversity of testing opportunities and particularly the kinds of tests can be done what you call the point of care or you don't have to get the sample, then ship it off somewhere, but you can get the answer away in thirty minutes or less. Last Friday, we announced awards no less than seven companies, mostly small businesses. That s some very inventive approaches they're doing viral. For a big scale opportunity and we are putting two hundred fifty dollars into that to try to get those out there as early as September so that we could have more ways for testing to happen particularly in high risk situations like nursing homes are meat. Packing plants are schools, childcare centers, where you could.

"As. You've pointed out. You know there have been identified studies that have talked about the levels infection on at different ages. Of Children, and we have looked, and some of the measures that we have put in place do depend on where the schools are. One of the things are that we did require was that some type of face covering must be worn at all of our schools. There is a we allow. The face coverings to be taken off in pre K. through grades three If the a sufficient social distancing takes place in the classrooms, however if children are moving. From Room to room, which there's very limited movement at the Elementary School or moving within their classroom than they have to have their mass own. However for grades four through twelve a face covering is required for all children. We. Have Limited movement on throughout on our schools particularly in grades pre K. through six Those classrooms have self contained teachers in which one teacher is responsible for the primary instruction of the day. We're making sure that when classes are able to have P.. E.. And other types of activities they are having them where they do not have contact with other groups of students. Now, in grades seven through twelve we do have changing among classrooms. However, we have established one ways in our corridors and in our Commons area on in an attempt to help with the traffic fled. Another thing that you asked and finally, I. Mean. Go ahead. Sorry. Let me just ask you this. Maybe you could incorporate Immunex have you felt any political pressure at all? Obviously many people want to see schools reopened for obvious reasons. But some parents, you know Award Teachers Award. There's a lot of political pressure from the White House. Have you felt any pressure? Are you confident that in your area at least the science is being followed? We have not built any political pressure on here in our area. As I said, we made our decision based on. What we expected in what we had been planning along with. Community input. We looked at the guidelines for the Centers for Disease Control, the Mississippi State Department of help along with the American Academy of Pediatrics, and we incorporated all of those guidelines into our reopening plan to try to address anything and everything that we needed. To create a safe learning environment, I think one of the important things to be considered is that communities do need to have a voice in what takes place in whether or not their schools reopen or not. Superintendent childress. Thank you very much for joining us from Mississippi now, Arne Duncan was secretary of education under President Barack, Obama. He says lack of leadership from Washington and a proper national coordination plan is proving to be devastating, and he's now going to join US welcome to the program Arne Duncan. LemMe Lemme me my asking you just heard the superior youtube and it's going to be good to get your expertise on this. On the big picture. You just heard the superintendent. Layout. Quite a detailed plan about how different kids in different ages being you know being a being given the rules to how to behave in the in the school. What do you make of that and give also that there are some infections already there? Obviously. We have fifteen thousand school districts across country in the fact that every superintendent is now has to become public health official trying to navigate this from selves many are doing testing trying to do contact, tracing, thinking about how.

Meanwhile, the crisis exacerbates existing inequities between race class and various different countries in the United States alone with Congress deadlocked over emergency aid for schools. President trump simply tweeted this open the schools now for context thirteen states. Higher infection rates per capita. Now, than the current global hotspots which are Peru and Brazil.

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

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

And Dr Conscious is not good. He said they had been averaging about 20,000 cases a day. And then various cities and states far started re opening, which led to the record breaking cases that we're seeing now, he said. We're still in the first wave. Isn't he even kind of went back and said, Well, he wouldn't even consider it away because it's not like we've gone back down to the baseline yet. It has just kind of gone up on the U. S. Did not get it curved back down to the baseline then it would be considered. You know, the first wave would be behind us. He also compared it Teo, the European Union and said, You know they've gotten I know what they're curve Looks like is an actual purport goes up and it goes back down to the baseline. Ours has not done that. Which is why, he says it's still the first go round of all of this. He does say that this is a serious situation that we need to address immediately and goes over the fundamental that he's been saying to do, you know, math wearing distancing. Washing your hands, avoiding crowds. If you do have to be in a small gathering, and he struck a small gathering just a very few people outdoors is better than indoors. Things like that were some of the things that he touched on during the interview. Boy, you know, they're just there seems to be quite a bit of concern about what future numbers they're going to look like here. Yeah, well, he rightfully so because if you look at the CDC Website right now, I mean, you get 2.9 million cases. Total deaths. 130,000 and you know we're seeing upticks in states. Across the U. S. And in Texas is obviously one that people are very concerned about. They're in California where you are. There's a lot of concern. Arizona, Florida I mean, you know, there's there's there's even been new states added to the quarantine list of you know, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Where, you know if you come up here, you gotta quarantine for 14 days before Before you can move about the move about the area, so to speak, So, yeah, There's a lot. There's a lot going on that are is is very worrisome right now, especially with the amount of hospital bed that people are, you know.

"Of this problem. And is the scientific leadership aware of the scale of this problem? I think the leadership is aware if you're talking about Francis Collins who heads the national institutes of health and his chief deputy orange toback. They've been writing about this in alarming tones in in nature and other top journal saying, you know, the system is broken. It needs to be fixed. How big a scale it is. It's that is much harder to question to answer, but there are a lot of different lines of evidence that suggests that about half of what gets published in the biomedical research literature. This is preclinical stuff, not not trials involving human beings, but about half of that stuff is probably wrong and will not stand the test of time. And that's that's a pretty. That's a pretty big number. And I think you could. You're obviously never going to drive that down to almost nothing, but you but you, but you should be able to reduce that substantially. If you think more carefully about what method you use and what statistical tests you apply, you're being very careful. Saying that this is pre clinical work and and just to give our listeners a picture. Like, you know, this area by medical researchers is a mix of privately funded groups, academic groups of pharmaceutical groups. Is there an area that this is more centered in a amongst that group, that sets of groups? I think there is, and I think it's actually an academic science. And the reason for this is that the rewards are very different in academic science, and they are in like pharmaceutical companies. If you're in an academic lab, you are rewarded for having an exciting finding that gets published in a high profile, scientific journal like science or nature or sell. That's kind of the coin of the realm for you. If you're trying to build your career, get more grants and so on. And so the incentives are not to get something right necessarily, but to get something flashy that you can get published and and I and I think that drives a lot of these behaviors that were scientists say, well, what can I do? You know, instead of saying, well, maybe I should do one more. Experiment to see if I'm actually wrong. They may stop at that point and saying, well, I have a very exciting results. I'm going to publish it now and then maybe I'll do the follow up study for TriNet. Not to be right. You know, I still have my fabulous publication, and that's really what I'm rewarded for. Now, if you're working for a pharmaceutical company or biotech company or something like that, your results better be right because you are a trying to get FDA approval for some product. And so all of this is going to get looked at very carefully by the food and Drug administration and federal regulators. But also if you're wrong, what happens is you may your company may have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on a drug that's not gonna work, and so that's money down the drain. So the incentive system is completely different there. So they tend to be much more cautious in their in in their experiments, not necessarily as creative, but that's not what they're out for. Right? They're trying to really determine whether something works or not, and and so that that is that that is substantial difference. And as to your other point about distinguishing between this, preclinical research and research and human beings. I think that's actually an interesting part of this story because back in the nineteen ninety s a lot of these problems were also taking place in clinical medicine in studies involving human beings. There were a lot of small studies, very dubious results, not not enough expect participants to really get a very solid and believable result and so on, and that whole literature. And that whole process was was a mess. And there were a few people who really recognize that we need to clean this up and and actually there's been very substantial progress made in trying to make sure that when you do a an experiment or clinical trial involving human beings that you have enough of them that it's that it is..

"Why don't clog i've heard many of them testified event on reports really francis college since he map the dna you would think scientifically that he knows that we have been able to make chemically organically organic chemistry dna that it's only made bio chemically meeting the information i that means information was the evidence to this date is that the evidence is in favor of intelligent design because we only know of information coming from design even in the study of dna and proteins now if intelligent design is viable competitor for the origin of life how can you certainly eliminated as an explanation for the evolution i would just refer you to francis collins book and i can't remember what it is right now have and you weren't convinced that were you were you convince my you don't have to read a book to his book to know the answer the viable theory of intelligent design for the origin life when there's absolutely no evidence that it can be made by chance organic you know my observation my observation is what you just said is your opinion but you don't want to say that it's your opinion i to say it's incontrovertible by opinions there we go i've been trying for fifty years to make but what does that have to do with with his francis collins as an evangelical not rejecting not rejecting evolution as a as a plausible theory and also not in conflict with biblical faith well it depends what kind of faith you have okay there we go all right don't interrupt me like that and then cut me off with a sarcastic little ride with our dilemma on the scientific theory if it can't be challenged already determined.
