Governor Cuomo explained quote. You have to start with a large number of tests. We said at a goal yesterday. Do double the number of state tests to go from twenty thousand on an average to forty thousand that is just about the maximum capacity for all of the laboratory machines in the state every positive. You have to go back and trace and the tracing is a very big big deal once you trace and find more positives than you isolate the positives. They are under quarantine. The can't go out they can't infect anybody else and quotes. That will then be fed into what cuomo calls the reopening calibration in which the state would gradually reopen its economy as its ability to test trace and isolate positive cases increases Washington state site of an early coronavirus. Hotspot is also planning a massive contact tracing effort quoting. Npr Washington was the first state where public health departments used contact tracing to try to box in the corona virus in January that effort grew more intensive at the end of February with the first reports of Cova nineteen deaths but by mid March as the cases ballooned the sheer numbers forced public health departments to abandon most contact tracing now the numbers of hospitalizations and new cases are dropping. Washington is preparing to restart rigorous contact tracing but on dramatic new scale. We expect roughly fifteen hundred workers focused solely on contact tracing by the second week of May governor. Jay Inslee said this workforce will be rapid response. Something like a fire brigade. There are already about seven hundred contact tracers available state and local public health.

We think that generally on average in an interviewer can reach out to twenty one contacts a day Washington considers a contact to be anyone with whom the infected persons spent at least ten minutes at a distance of less than six feet. Some of the contact searching will be streamlined with software such as online contact questionnaires. But wiseman says that still a lot of work quote.

Kidney patients who can continue to function on dialysis have been taken off waiting lists while still accruing waiting time for the day when non urgent transplants resume heart patients. Who are not already in the hospital on mechanical heart assist devices in who may be able to wait a few weeks. We'll do so. Living donors also have to wait. It's ethically questionable to put a healthy person in added harm's way from possible exposure to the corona virus in the hospital to donate a kidney or part of a liver perspective transplant recipients can't have covert nineteen either the immune suppression drugs. They must take to prevent organ rejection would prevent them from fighting off the virus and make them super shedders of the virus placing those around them at hugely increased risk of being infected transplant. Emergencies mean people who can't wait another week or even another day but these patients are also balancing on a knife's edge. They have to be sick enough to be near death but well enough not to need long icy used as in hospitals overwhelmed by corona those patients who need weeks on ventilators so they can breathe quotes. Our ability to deliver. Transplant is not always just about the risk of cove. In nineteen exposure. To the patient said David Mulligan chief of transplantation surgery and immunology at Yale. It's also do we have a bed. Do we have a ventilator to take care of the patient? Can we isolate the patient from other cove infected patients? Do we have enough time to do this operation? Get them through it. Keep them away from cove and then get them out of the hospital safely. That's what we're shooting for and quotes and another issue. Blood donation levels have massively dropped making blood supplies of central for transplant surgery under increasing pressure and then of course organs must themselves be tested for cove in nineteen to ensure that a transplant recipient is not given the virus in the course of the operation? However there is some light on the horizon. Transplants are beginning to resume in parts of the country. Hit earliest by the virus like Washington state as the number of Cova nineteen cases. Declines in hospital resources are able to be.

"The idea of villi are being a representation of the people of Norway and their injury which coincides with his injury. And so it ended up being really fortuitous in terms of we didn't have the material, but it made it actually intern mid to sequence better. And then there was a lot of challenges about inner cutting when the world finds out in the original script, you're on the island until Villier gets gets injured. We ended up moving all that up earlier and to make it more intercut than it would. Have been and it really served the tension and serve the reality of the situation because you know, kids have cellphones, and they all called their parents as soon as the student started and the the outside world and Oslo and surrounding areas in Norway. They all knew about it right away. Villi are really did call his mother from the cliff like that and told her what was happening. So we just took it that once that happened in the world comes in the police, and some of the parents, and I mean, there were even in real in the real story there were even you know, government members of the government that we're getting texts while the whole thing was going on in the bunker with the prime minister they were getting texts from kids on the island. So it intern made those decisions about where inner cutting ended up making the story much more tense in realistic than it would have been. So I it was just a really challenging sequence. It didn't really come together until halfway through the post production period. It's for me to have. Done and have things shaved it feels like a real movie right away. But I just had to be patient and keep working and working knowing that, you know, one day, I would have the solution to all these problems in a personal note. I mean, I I lived in New York in two thousand and one and what I remember about nine eleven is that you really didn't know what was going on. Everybody was trying to reach each other. And you didn't have information. It was more. You know, sudden it was confusing. And I thought that the way you edit it it really captured that confusion there were things that we cut out to make it more that way. I mean, it was a little there would things with the prime minister of the family that were a little more informative. And it was felt like it was leading the audience, and that you would be sort of guessing as to what goes on and getting little bits of information. You see when things even happen when you're when tragedies happen in your hearing them on the news. You know, you're getting bits of information initially that oftentimes out to be wrong. And you know, you don't really know what's going on takes several hours should. Thanks to to piece together. So it felt like that was more accurate who what is it? That would really be now where are you working with a team that you've worked with before net? Flex was gracious enough to let me bring to people with me to Norway in London because we did the post production in London when I asked I was surprised they said, yes. And I think they understood we had a very short post production schedule on that. I have my team with me the things we go more smoothly. Very smart. John Wiseman at Netflix made it accommodated us and let me bring Peter Duggan. And my first assistant in June, Ken, my second assistant. And then we had a Norwegian second system. Another second system who's Norwegian who was terrific named Geyer and production assistant. It's always going to have a local as a production assistant named Daniel who made up the rest of my Norwegian crew. And that was you know, they knew how things worked there. So it really made my life a lot easier. And then we've got to London. We didn't bring the Norwegian people with us. But we picked up some London assistant. Honey, Scott and hollie burn who worked with us in London. I think everybody on the film had the same mindset and the same..
