"Commonwealth Club's Board of Governors. Now let's join Bob Walker can Kelly and Mark sitter for their Commonwealth Club conversation? Hello, everyone and welcome to the Commonwealth Club on Mark sitter chair of the set of a project, a member of the club's board of governors and your moderator for today's program on Covert 19 vaccines and returning to normalcy Story is a split screen. On the one hand, we have exceeded 17 million cases of covert 19 in America and lost more than 300,000. American lives. Over 19 is now the leading cause of death in America. Last week, CDC director Robert Redfield warned that for the next 60 to 90 days well, Seymour deaths from covert 19 every day. Then we suffered during the September 11th attacks or during the bombing of Pearl Harbor. But I think what brings the pandemic home to most of us are our personal experiences as I found out myself last week, two weeks ago on a cousin of mine died from Kobe. That was more powerful than any abstract statistic. So that's one side of the split screen, and it's a horrendous story on the other screen. The news about a vac season for the Corona virus is fantastic. For this novel disease that we never heard of a year ago. We've created not one but multiple, safe and effective vaccines in an effort that many call the greatest scientific achievement in human history. The vaccine, produced by Fizer and violent tech just got the green light from the FDA last Friday. It was shipped this weekend. And as I'm sure most of you have heard just yesterday it the first vaccine was administered to health care professionals in the United States. So we have these two powerful vectors colliding right now. Burgeoning disease and the growing armament of vaccines to slow and combat the disease. So the questions are. How fast can we get a vaccine into enough arms of Americans? You slow and stop the disease who will get it first, who will have to wait the longest and who may not take it all? How long will it take to get our lives back to normal? And what will normal look like compared to what it was before the pandemic was moderator. I get to ask the hard questions, but don't have to answer them. Fortunately, we have two terrific experts, both common with veterans help answer these and other questions. I'll introduce them to you right now. Dr. Robert Wachter is professor and chair of the Department of Medicine. At the University of California, San Francisco, where he is the Holly Smith, Distinguished professor and science and medicine and the Benny Off endowed chair and hospital medicine. He is the author of 250 articles and six books and writes, often for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and many other publications. In 2015 modern Healthcare magazine ranked him as the most influential physician executive in the country. But for all these accolades, the real reason that Bob is here. Is because when the pandemic first started, Bob just began tweeting about what he was seeing at UCSF, his perspective as both a practicing physician and a hospital executive. Caught on. And since then, his tweets on covert 19 have been viewed over 50 million times by more than 250,000 followers. Our other guest is Ken Kelly, a veteran biotech and vaccine executive, currently working as a strategic advisor to and co founder of several companies. Folks going affects diseases, including the treatment and prevention of covert 19. From 2016 through 2018. Ken was a White House presidential executive fellow and an adviser on penned in preparedness to the National Institute of Allergy and Effects Disease. With his director, Anthony Fauci, he still regularly in touch and the biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, or Barda. And the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, So Ken brings both vaccine business and policy expertise to us today. So Bob can welcome back to the Commonwealth Club. I have some questions for you, of course, And the audience also is invited to ask questions in the chat, and I will try to include as many as I possibly can. I'm sure we'll have more than we can handle, but we'll get to all the most important ones. So, Bob, I want to start with you. I just mentioned the headlines of how bad the pandemic is on a national level. What are you seeing right now? At UCSF. We are first of all, Thanks for having me and us. We're seeing a surge. Unlike any that we have seen in the pandemic Azaz, you know, San Francisco's had a remarkably benign experience so far. We had We stopped on the curve in March and April. We saw a bit of a surge in June and turned it around very quickly. This time. It's not turning around. It's going in the wrong direction and pretty fast trajectory. So a month ago at UCSF, we had 10 covert patients and two or three on ventilators. Today we have 50. On about 10 or 12 on ventilators. So about five times the volume we had in the beginning that doesn't stress the system in a major way. It's obviously challenging to take care of the patients, but it hasn't caused us to. Uh, it's a 600 bed Hospital. We have 70 ICU bed, so there's still plenty of room. But things are going in the wrong direction. And what's different about this from prior surges is despite the governor and the region's stay home orders that were issued a couple weeks ago doesn't seem like things are turning around, and I think that's probably Thanksgiving effect on top of People, people going out on about following the rules, so going in the wrong direction, and we'll see we're hoping we'll turn around soon. Well, I want to ask you to push him..

The job on council is a lot more than the once a month and i am in meetings during every week several times today trying to balance my being a hotelier. That's that's my full time job so we all find that balance. We all find what we're very interested in doing just like everybody else. We're twenty four. Seven meetings are are once a month so you you you have to update the co Dacoven regulations every week or every month. We do. That's a requirement that every tuesday we continue the the emergency declaration. So that is done every tuesday because we're required to so it's not something that we can put off for a month. It is something has to be updated every week and at that time we also put the the numbers out if you've been on the website. I'm any updates that we have anything that we've discussed if there's been an emergency meeting the things that needs to be up there they're they're updated by city attorney and by the mayor when you say they have to be updated every week or is it every month or every week every week for us. We're required to buy who i believe it's our charter. Okay your charter. Not it's not a state requirement or something like that because i don't see the kind of detail from a lot of other municipalities tuesday. It seems like every tuesday. We're getting an email from the town. The town city with complete update on and they have links to the newsletter. Or whatever it's referred to in person shout out. That detail is incredible. We are nothing without the staff that we have Judaism omra has been our city manager for twenty years and judy is our pi. Oh she has twenty four seven.

You'd have to have your primaries in august. A lot of our people come back right and october november and december and they want to learn about the candidates. They you know everyone here is extremely engaged so we decided that we would keep that electoral process in march. So we do. Have the six qualified candidates running for the three seats in the chamber. Did a great job with the Forum they had on from thursday at thursday. I think it was originally. They had is scheduled for for tuesday. Or whenever the inaugur inauguration was and then they moved it which was which was great. Because i think everybody was watching the inauguration and then got a chance to say that right inauguration you're right and that that was actually just in fairness to the chamber. That was a misprint. Oh so that was corrected. I think they did a great job. You know we are nonpartisan. Doesn't get involved with those forums. But you know this is a different world. There are going to be two additional forms. One from sec f. And one from the league of women voters and you know in cove led world. It's been very different..

The range should taper off late in the evening. Tomorrow we'll have a love about 53. It's W in my sea at 706. Support for NPR comes from it. Lassie in makers of collaboration software like Jiro and Trillo, 83% of Fortune, 500 Companies use it, Lassie in to help team stay agile, aligned and connected. Learn more at it. Lassie in dot com. It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. President Trump has issued a pardon to his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Flynn had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and then recanted. This ends a years long saga, which NPR's Ryan Lucas has been long following and he joins us now he Ryan either Right. So the president's partner for Flynn just happened this afternoon. What do we know at this point? Well, the president announced this on Twitter as he is want to do, he says in the tweet that it is a great honor to announce that he has granted a full pardon. To Flynn. He sends his congratulations to Flint and his family and says, quote. I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving. I will say this pardon is not a surprise. This is something that was widely expected in Flynn's lawyer actually had even acknowledged in court this fall that she had, actually, indeed. Spoken with the president about a possible partner. Okay? Can you just give us a mini refresher course For a moment? It feels like this Flynn case has been going on and on forever remind us what Flynn was originally prosecuted for. This has been a bit of illegal cellular. Flynn Flynn was the only member of the Trump administration actually, who was charged as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. He pleaded guilty in 2017 tow line to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador at the time, Sergei Kislyak. Those were conversations that took place during the transition period. So after Trump had been elected, But before he took office, Flynn pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with investigators with investigators. And he did so extensively right? Okay. So he cooperated with Mueller's team but has now been pardoned. But Ah, federal judge in D. C is still weighing his case. Right? Did I get that right? That's right. This has been a long and one he wrote. To get to this point. Flynn was actually in court almost two years ago now for sentencing. But that was abruptly put off to allow Flynn to complete his cooperation on on a couple of other cases. Ah, few months After that, Flynn changed, his lawyers dumped his previous legal team brought on a new legal team. And he completely changed his tune. After that, he proclaimed his innocents on said that he was set up by the FBI that he was entrapped. He even went so far as to try to withdraw his guilty plea. Before all of that could play out. Attorney General William Barr moved to drop the department's case against Flynn Bar said that Flynn never should have been prosecuted in the first place. The presiding judge, as you mentioned before, refused to drop this case immediately. He said that he wanted to take a closer look at the department stated reasons for this. Ultimately, as of today, the judge still has not granted that motion to dismiss. He is still weighing what to do. In that case now, naturally, it's a it's a moot point. The president has acted. He's taken political responsibility for this. And Clayton Flynn, of course, now has his pardon in hand, right? Well, overall, How would you say this case has been handled by the Department of Justice? This has been a difficult case for the Justice Department. It has been caught up from The beginning, Essentially in in bitter political battle that we've seen take place in Washington. Flynn, the president and his allies portray Flynn here as a victim of the Justice Department of the FBI of what the president would call a witch hunt a hoax. Meanwhile, the attorney general's decision, which was highly unusual to intervene in this case, and to try to drop it after Flynn had pleaded guilty caused an uproar in critics said This looks a lot like a political favor to a friend of the president. Well, this is of course, the first part in that we have seen from President Trump's since the election. Should we be anticipating many more? This is the first of what we expect to be a number of partners. Yes, there are a number of people who the president is friends with who could expect to pardon some top names were looking at former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort. The president's former political adviser, Steve Bannon, who is facing federal charges in New York. There is also of course, the possibility that the president could pardon his family preemptively and the possibility for the president to try to pardon himself before he leaves office. That is NPR. Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas. Thank you, Ryan. Thank you. Encourage or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality.

"You wanna be a part of the conversation tonight go ahead shoot us attacks you can ask us questions if there's anything on your mind we've been we've we've really enjoyed hearing from you guys and and the things that you want to know and and being able to sort of interject those throughout the show sometimes we'll you know we'll have a whole segment where we kind of just just that's all we do but it's been really great to sort of know what questions you guys have the things that you're feeling it doesn't have to be a question if you if you just have something you want to say that's a great way to reach out to US nine eight ninety seven three but now Mike we have a guest yes we do we have one of my favorite food writers in Seattle which means one of my favorite food writers period Bethany Jean comment from The Seattle Times a Bethany you did the story I think that we were all waiting for in terms of at least how we're going to continue eating during the during everything being shut down it's a really great compendium of where to go what's to what's to buy when you get there and the fact that all these restaurants have had to make a very rapid pivot to something that many of them were not doing regularly which is take out dining it's true and thanks for having me in these troubled times I think it's really important to talk about what we can all do to support Seattle's restaurant industry because who are really suffering out there there is there are industry experts are predicting that seventy five percent of our independently owned restaurants will never open again and we have tons of laid off workers trying to get an appointment that is and when it comes is not going to be adequate the new aid package that might be happening they're talking about twelve hundred dollars to most adult Americans and we all live in Seattle and we know how far that won't go right so take out and delivery is something that a lot of places have turned to it really only employs a fraction of the industry's workers but you know that's something and those of us who have the privilege of working from home with our cats or the means otherwise you can go out and support them by getting take out is actually best if they're using an app based delivery service because after each delivery services charge a substantial fee to the restaurant and that takes more money out of their pockets at this very very hard time right right so so what you're saying then is if you have if you have the option and can easily do that maybe go out to when you're doing if you're doing that one day running errands and pick up your delivery food curbside because you can save the restaurant a bit of money in that puts more right more money in the owners in in the hopefully in the staffs pockets as well correct exactly and it's really weird out there getting take out one of the places I've visited in sh cafe Juanita over in Kirkland yes I've entered into the epicenter of the chef there Holly Smith is taking extreme precautions health wise she said that they're basically running it like a hospital they know that they're feeding elderly people and when you go there it's a beautiful mid century house the dining experience there is very luxurious and amazing but you just pull up in your car and you call in and you pop the trunk and someone runs out and throws a bunch of really nice food and how well and she's at Holly's in the James beard award winner right indeed I mean she asked the crowd I'm does some really delicious take out that I never thought I would be eating so what is there anything else that you think that people should be doing to help out with the service industry I mean I know personally being on the ownership and of it as well as a reporter it is it's very very tough on and I got it on on the service industry in particular and I agree with that assessment I mean a lot of people who think that they are going to get their jobs back or not especially in these places with you know let's just use and I'm not saying anything about specific with any specific knowledge let's use Tom Douglas as an example there's eight hundred employees there I don't see how they re hire eight hundred people when this comes back to much less to small places that have twelve employees are thirty employees or something like that yeah it's been it's been an ounce and it's really scary and it's really sad the people that I think that the Seattle restaurant industry a big part of it is a really lovely community of really great people and they love what they do they don't make a ton of money out of it but they love making nice food and whether that's mom and pop and ID like secretion both wanted to see the sushi place or about or fancy cafe Juanita these are people who just want to make us happy and and they are really up a creek and you know I think there's a real opportunity here to increase our human empathy and our understanding of how the industry works and how it doesn't work for a lot of people these people don't have a safety net and you know they're the ones who serve us they are the ones across the bar right my parents don't want to washing the dishes and the fact that they don't have a safety net and that this is bringing it to the forefront all right I mean I don't want to call it a silver lining but you know if we come out of this with an understanding that those of us who patronize our restaurants a drink at a bar and for me on a restaurant is a fast privilege and we should always tip huge specially right now he and you know if we come out of this with more income equality in our city and nationwide and if we come out of it with some universal health care to people than that I mean again it's hard to say silver lining because this is so serious but I think that would be really good yeah that's the need is so this is this take out of it for a lot of these places that better doing it it's a it's a fairly unsustainable business model over the long haul so these places I'm assuming do need extra money restaurants are generally that the profit margins are pretty thin normally is there are there any funds or is there anywhere that people can donate if they if they want to you know keep keep the industry going there are lots of berries from popping up for our workers and and you know people are saying you can buy gift certificates to restaurants or gift cards and that that's the way that you can get some money in our pockets now sh some of that may end up being donations if they go under realistically you know I mean we can all we can all eat takeout and delivery we can find the sites that are going specifically to independently owned restaurants and their workers The Tonight donation sites but this is really bigger than that and again twelve hundred dollars a month from the federal government is not going to cut it and and we need to step up at a local state and federal level if you can email your Congress people because she's really helpful this is an industry worth having the most impact here and arts which everything's canceled and then ironically a lot of people in the arch support making their art by working around services that's precisely true exactly we're talking to Betty Jean command food writer for The Seattle Times a Bethany are you hearing from any of the restaurateurs the the owners of the restaurant to frequently are not owners of their actual space are they talking to you at all about are are they finding and I know that we can't make some sort of you know broad judgment about this but are they risk reporting that there's any sympathy from landlords about extraordinary because the one of the big expenses in or in any business is obviously plays but in Seattle it's also your square footage price I mean these places are paying a lot of money to have a storefront in the city are you hearing anything about any what are the landlords coming to terms with folks are they giving them a bit of relief so maybe they can hang on a month or two longer before hopefully things maybe turn around a bit I haven't heard that I wish that I would just yeah the the the leases in Seattle for restaurants even before this all happened we have had a really big restaurant room and she had a list more of them on your restaurant opening per day but at the beginning of this year that sort of started to turn around in a way and we're seeing fewer openings and really prominent James beard award winning chef like Matt Dillon decided to pull out because if you have to renew your lease expire architects and it doesn't really pencil out for a lot of people anymore independent owners and he says that consumers yep yep and it's gone and that was one of Seattle's great restaurants so if you can add this into the equation act that it's it's really crazy it would be great if landmarks which forgive some rent here I don't see that happening that's not really how capitalism works but capitalism is kind of breaking down right now I don't know if you guys heard but the cheesecake factory S. like stopping paying rent which is totally nuts but these are what is possible you know the industry better than that of it better than I do but is it possible that the universal nature of this in some ways provides may be an incentive for landlords to the extent that you're not it's not like you're going to fill that space with anyone else at this point yeah I mean I am my mind is boggled by all of that the hell knows what's gonna happen is gonna get real weird I mean it already is everybody is bound to fully aware so you have a list of places your story will provide all put on social media page link to your story but if you had to throw out there I know that you've got a lot of friends I'm not looking for you to pick favorites actually I'm looking for you to pick favorites let me completely reversed that but if you had to throw out a place or a couple of places that you would suggest people give a try to what would you suggest but there are still many great places doing takeout or delivery right now and they're all over the city and people probably want to do something in their own neighborhood and support their favorites and it's likely that your favorite is doing take out and delivery so go with your favorite instead of mine I wrote about five of them but to sort of catch twenty two if that is those five are probably really overwhelmed today right right so they don't need it as well as others do that that's a fair point yeah so choose your own adventure that's to me what are you this is a question I've I've been asking our guests what are you doing for your mental health what are you doing to take care of yourself arm I am taking a lot of locks and petting my cat until she's practically bald and I the students to take out food that I've been needing it it's really meaningful to me because I feel like it means so much to the people who are making it that we're supporting them and I feel like the taste of favorite restaurant dish is really comforting even when it's at home and it's very very messed up times and likewise I think supporting your local wine shop or distillery or brewery and something that can be really helpful for everyone right now not a lot of those places are doing curbside pickup or delivery and you know have a drink people how does that how does that work exactly the the curbside experience I've never I I haven't done it do you just pull up in and do you go in or is there an employee out on on the sidewalk waiting to talk to you.
