covered nineteen technical lead at the World Health Organization and she also heads up its emerging diseases and someone else's unit thanks so much for being with us this morning thank you Rachel is there something you didn't know last week that you know now yes the answer to that is yes it is happening so quickly for example I don't think that we're learning are about disease progression you know what you people start with so what are the differences between Kobe nineteen Lou so that would be better for people around that we are constantly learning about what are the intervention that countries are doing to bring this outbreak under control to slow this outbreak so what does that mean in terms of testing I mean should countries be testing only people who are symptomatic or should there be an aggressive effort to test every single citizen certainly do not have enough cap globally discuss everything that is that we don't what W. H. O. recommends it happened all suspects cases and we have a definition for what that that is a combination of some kind of V. as well as the luger to the virus itself we know that is that there is a very strong approach to finding all the cases isolated and caring for them finding all the contact quarantining the contact and passing the contract to develop the clip does it affect the mental to drive down based on the modeling that you no doubt do and all the information that you have gleaned about this disease over the past twelve weeks what is your estimate for how long the pandemic class what we know from multiple countries across Asia exactly intervention can slow this down and eventually stop transmission in China there are zero cases over the last few days that have been locally acquired cases that we're now seeing trying never actually importation from other countries this is unique this is the first pandemic in history that we will be able we have the power to slow down and stop I have to us though Italy has has passed widespread restrictive social distancing measures and in the north those hospitals are completely completely overwhelmed doesn't seem to be abating the crisis yes hello unfortunately in several countries we saw this increase as well the situation will get worse before it gets better in Italy they are wrong in terms of their capacity that hospital a large number of people and I see you also have an older population demographic and we do know that older people can have severe duty it comes down to you know how much they could do the terms that we use with our technician he intervention he socializes that they put in place will help it will take some time hope and I want the listener you know that there is hope that we can turn this around thank you for that Dr Maria then took off with the World Health Organization thank you again we appreciate it thank you very much so this week we've been bringing you the voices of those who've been impacted directly by this pandemic people who have lost jobs because of the economic turmoil health care workers who are putting their own health at great risk and now today you're going to hear from someone who recovered from covert nineteen she spoke with Steve Inskeep she is Christy Karras of Seattle she has a job that in the last few days has begun to seem quaint I write a column for The Seattle Times which ironically is about how to find community and it's all about people getting together in real life so that's been suspended for the time being her story begins when people were still getting together without a second thought her husband went to a small social gathering in February nobody there seems sick and there seems no reason to worry since health officials have yet to detect community spread of the virus in the United States but in the days that followed several people who attended grew ill and soda Christy Karras and woke up feeling as though Mack truck had hit me I had a fever aches and pains my husband had already started showing symptoms he had a fever so I was trying to avoid getting sick from him so I actually quarantine him in our basement that was not successful and of course at the time we thought it was probably a fluke because nobody was really thinking corona virus could be a possibility we didn't think it had gotten out and about in the public as it were and now we know the reality is that it was moving about silently well before anybody would know yes definitely including among my friends it turns out and myself so you had this fever what happened then I had a fever for a few days along with the aches and pains and fatigue and brain fog I found it very hard to do anything productive to do any work I mostly just wanted to lie around and do absolutely nothing after a few days I started feeling a little bit better fever went away and then a sinus congestion kicked in and it was only in about the second week that I developed a cough so it was definitely the fever that was the notable for sometime it's been emphasized to us that the people who are most vulnerable here tend to be those who are elderly over seventy or have some underlying health condition do either of those things apply to you I am in my forties generally very healthy my husband has asthma he definitely had a worse time with it than I did and I think it does seem that older people tend to get the respiratory issues earlier and so that might be one reason it was characterized that way early on because most of the people they were seeing were very sick and in hospitals and I think they're even now is not a whole lot of information on how younger healthier people do move through this yeah and I guess I should amend this a little bit it is said that elderly people or people with underlying conditions are the ones who are most at risk for death right just about anybody can get this as you have shown and you said there was this fever what happened after the fever.

"Is how long we're all gonna have to wait for a vaccine for the corona virus a lot of public health experts think we are at least a year away so doctors around the world are trying existing medicines that might be useful in the meantime and that's something that NPR's pharmaceuticals correspondent Sydney Lufkin has been taking a look at and she joins us now has to be good morning so you've been reporting on this particular experimental drug what is it the drug is called red death V. and it's an anti viral medicine that's been given that that's given intravenously and it's actually been around for a while but it's never been approved by the food and drug administration president trump called red death if you're promising yesterday and the energy eight commissioner Steven Hahn has said that the agency is working very closely with Kelly and sciences that's the company that makes this drug to figure out basically if it's safe and effective as a treatment for coronavirus so what exactly do doctors think this drug might be helpful well the drug was tested a few years ago to see if it worked against the bolo which is another viral disease but it got put on the sideline when other treatments and vaccines were developed so when destiny you're pretty much went back on the shelf until this coronavirus started sweeping through there had been some animal tests and lab experiments that suggested it might be effective against other viruses in the same coronavirus family namely sars and murders so trying it for this new coronavirus you know it makes sense run destiny or interferes with the ability of viruses to reproduce so are they testing this thing must be done to figure out if it if it can be effective yeah there are clinical trials to test the drug in covert nineteen patients and they're going on in China the U. S. and other countries around the world one study is looking at how the drug affects patients fevers in the amount of oxygen in their blood which makes sense because when patients are having breathing trouble their oxygen levels will get too low so that's one way to see if the drug is actually helping them to get better another study is focused on how many patients are well enough to leave the hospital within two weeks of starting treatment and doctors of course will also be checking out side effects are problems with the drug we don't know yet how safe the drug is for these patients the studies are still underway there are no final results yet and without final results scientists tell me that we just don't know if this really works for cold at nineteen what do patients have to be enrolled in clinical trials together no there is another way it's called compassionate use that's when the FDA allows patients typically very sick people with just a few options to take experimental drugs outside of a clinical study but it only happens in special circumstances for instance if the patient's disease or condition is life threatening and there are no other FDA approved options for the patient and that patient can't already enroll in one of the clinical trials so courses up to the company to provide the drug and in this case Gillian has done that the FDA says it's granted access

how the FDA does this time around we just wanna make sure and the FDA has said they want to make sure it's safe before they can approve it and effective okay NPR pharmaceuticals correspondent Sydney luck can force thank you we appreciate it thanks this is the time of year of course when young people often had to resort communities in Florida and along the Gulf coast for spring break and in the past few days have you seen these videos showing big crowds along those beaches despite the corona virus warnings well in pairs Greg Allen reports that some local officials are now pulling the plug on that party the pictures and videos have been circulating on social media beaches packed with young people on spring break in places like Clearwater beach Florida south padre island Texas that was the scene a few days ago on south padre island in response the city yesterday issued an emergency declaration leaving the beach open but limiting groups to ten or fewer in Florida Miami beach's mayor last week declared quote spring break is over the city close the most popular beaches and ordered bars and restaurants to close early but Miami beach mayor Dan Gelber concedes that did little to discourage the crowds what I've been walking down ocean drive and I've been looking at some of these cafes and the kids on spring break in my own daughters just came home from spring break you know they don't think at all about this as a threat they believe they're invincible now Miami beach has gone further closing all county beaches and shutting down all bars and restaurants I delivered that news to a group from North Carolina the same with the with the clothes and all that there's a lot of tough that's Curtis Smalls he and his wife to me a small square in Miami beach celebrating their anniversary and her birthday they weren't thinking about the coronavirus we've been having fun we really haven't been thinking about it we act like it's not even existed because yeah I mean it's a lot of things to do yeah it's nothing to be scared of public health officials worry that even if they don't get sick young people mixing in large crowds in bars and on beaches will be exposed to the virus and carry it home to infect their parents and grandparents and there's increasing evidence young people also are at risk the CDC reported this week that more than ten percent of young adults who've been infected have been hospitalized in light of the new guidance from the CDC many communities are now closing their beaches on Florida's panhandle Walton county made the decision yesterday local health official Holly Holt says it's the best way to discourage spring breakers from showing up if you look at the hot spot and the individuals like in Nashville just some of the areas that people are actually they're leaving their they're coming into our beaches you know once they're here everything spreads while Florida's governor has resisted a state wide beach closure yesterday the governor in Alabama did just that she ordered all beaches closed that was after resort communities were overwhelmed by young people and families taking what many were calling a corona vacation here's the mayor of orange beach Alabama Tony cannon we have a significant number of people that are coming here to whether this is a bit difficult they'd rather be here than to be at their home and whether it be national the orange wherever at this point the beaches that remain open include those in Georgia and Texas and others in Florida in Panama City beach councilman Hector Solis says people on the beach is there have been mostly following the rules about limiting crowds keeping their distance from others and judging from cancellations hotel and property owners reporting by next week he doesn't expect large crowds to be a problem most people that were scheduled for next week canceled or not coming what will probably happen Saturday is that we will go back to pretty close to a ghost town the concern
