"This is business talk. Radio. US A radio news With Dan Iraqi. The United States has reported nearly 200,000 new coronavirus cases in a single day. About 195,000 new cases were reported on Friday, a new single day high that pushed the seven day average of new cases to over 166,000. The U. S has now passed 12 million total coronavirus cases since the beginning of the pandemic. Dr Anish Adalja is a senior scholar, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. And he tells CBS news that the reason the U. S is having such a hard time. Clamping down on the pandemic is a lack of infrastructure surrounding testing. We have to be able to test ourselves. Almost on a daily basis, Maybe even at home. We brush our teeth, test ourselves and know what we can do that day. We can't do in November in United States what Taiwan South Korea could do in March. So this really is is the reason why we're seeing these surges and then you have pandemic fatigue on top of us. This is us a radio news. Could an ancient mystery be determining the events of our time?

Trump senior campaign adviser Kayleigh Mcenany says the courtroom is where these claims will ultimately be born out. She tells Fox News that recent successes in Pennsylvania show the way to present these challenges in Pennsylvania. I've made the case about the equal protection claim, where floaters and Democrat County's got to cure their ballots, but not in Republican counties will. In fact, in a court yesterday, a Commonwealth court in Allegheny County there was a suit by a third party brought and they won on the grounds of equal protection. Of course, it's going to go out. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court where it's Democrat on day will reject it. But we've got to continue fighting this.

"Doctor A. Michelle Dahlia is senior scholar of Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. And he says What has changed since the early days of the pandemic is that we now fully grasp the effectiveness of wearing masks. The biggest difference is that we know the pre symptomatic people. People who don't have symptoms yet. Can't spread this virus. And that's where the math recommendation came from that they're people out there that have the virus that don't know it that are contagious and face coverings help to decrease the force infection. That's the simplest thing we could do to avoid any kind of lock down. Talk if we can get people to where These coverings very diligently, We will see a decrease in spread.

Kind of like it. I'm trying to think who it sounds like Dave is in a band. I said no. Uh maybe you know the band that some of the members came from, but probably not this bad. I have no idea like Google it I get live Election day tracker at the New York Times I get Election Day 2020 a politico, so I don't get it so easy to figure out the song was tied on Election day. You know, I'm playing it. I love that thing to do with the chart just came to mind this morning when I was out walking, which I do before I go to work every day. I'm impressed with you. It was accorded. I was that walking to you when I walk to the polls this morning because I want to get a feel of people coming out there is history. Karan. It's a side project of Duran Duran called Arcadia. Nice. So if you got Duran Duran, that's pretty good. Absolutely. Well, it had that sound like, you know, Hungry like the wolf Absolutely s O. They had some of the members. And then there was another group called the Power Station, which Robert Palmer was the lead singer of the so called some like it hot. Okay? Yeah, Anyway, So that's what it is. Any case, so no connection with the chart, though. None whatsoever. We appreciate that Election day gift. I'm just going to say all right, then. Okay, So what does the chart focus on? Well, Black Rock came out with this call for investors. That kind of load up on smaller US cos it was the Black Rock Investment Institute for Research are to be more precise. So why they do that? You know, they're thinking that maybe we get some significant fiscal stimulus is they put it after today's election and smaller companies there are in a better position to take it. Vance of that. What they highlighted is the difference in industry group make up for the smaller companies, as opposed to the larger ones they use. Um, Emma C. I indexes to sort of illustrate that It's Ah Ah, in their report, which you can find online. In fact, there's a link to it in my chart. Text. But what I did to have a similar kind of analysis is work with the S and P 500. That's sort of a reverse version of that. In other words, the smallest companies have the largest wait. And vice versa. So in other words, you really put you to focus on the smaller companies rather than a larger ones. And when you do that, you find out that the biggest increase In weight goes to industrial companies and you talk about an area that would do well, presumably, we get a lot of stimulus, especially if there's infrastructure spending involved. Industrial companies would certainly meet that bill. And on the other hand, if you look at the biggest declines and wait for you know that we're verse waited, S and P 500 s is relative to the original index. Communications services and information technology. So two very clear, big tax related group so You know, this is part of black rocks argument. So why you want on the smaller companies as opposed to larger ones? You end up with more shares the companies or they say bigger stake and companies that stand of benefit from a pickup in the economy, stimulus driven Perhaps. And you don't have a CE. Much invested in those companies will really run up the last few years. So if you want more false semi mail gets you the chart. The explanation goes with it and everything I do. Going forward. The email addresses Di Wilson that Bloomberg dot net. That's Di Wilson at Bloomberg. Alright to David is art, both Amazon I'm assuming apples and information technology, but his Amazon is Amazon as well. No consumer discretionary because they're made businesses online retail, but pageants as they are in Tak, you know, with Amazon Web services to some of their other areas, they're predominately a retailer. During consumer discretionary, and it's funny because that if you look at the smaller companies where the reverse index that group within the S and P 500 has a greater weight, but right because so many companies air small now because Amazon it's kind of beating him down, Yeah, exactly. But I was thinking about information technology. So apples part of that correct, right? Microsoft? I just want And go home services communicates the services, you know, Don't forget it is Google right Alphabet? It's Facebook. It's that I just could say the apple like I want to wait until we get like the numbers that represents the fourth quarter and the holiday sales. And if there's a blockbuster night like I just everybody seems to be turning their back on information technology. And I think you know that is very much though. Our world our economy and We shall see. And we'll see how people go for the five G iPhones. Correct. We're going to buy them. We're finally going to buy them. There you go. There you go.

India passes Brazil to become the second worst-hit country by the pandemic with more than 4.2 million cases
"India is now surpassing Brazil as Thie. Second worst Corona virus hit country with cases topping 4.2 million In contrast, New York State is showing progress with the rate of positive test staying below 1% for 30 straight days for more K C. B s news anchor Dan Mitchinson spoke with Dr Amesh Ayala, senior scholar, Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security Doctor. What's happened in India? What do you think is contributing to this case, Serge? You have to remember that social distancing is the way we keep cases from spreading and social distancing is a luxury in many parts of the world in a place that has a population of over a billion people where you have people that live in close quarters and multigenerational household where There's a lot of use of mass transit. It's just going to be very hard to keep a virus that spreads this efficiently from moving through your population. So to me, it's not surprising what's happening in India. I think it's uh this is going to be something that we see in the developing world. This is going to be very hard to control. Well. The prime minister did order all businesses shut down earlier this year, didn't he when this started, but I mean, it hit the economy so hard that they've had to start re opening a lot of these businesses. Again. Yes, you can't. You cannot completely shut down people's productivity and not have consequences. So it's not surprising that in places where they don't have a lot of accumulated wealth, But there's not a lot of saving that people cannot. Tolerate a stay at home order for that long of a period of time and what the goal really should be is not necessarily economic shutdown and stay at home orders but targeted public health intervention, testing, tracing and isolating You need to have health infrastructure to be able to do that. And it's clear that some countries do not have it. And even in countries that do like United states, we still can't really executed that. Well. Yeah, you can tell a billion 1.3 billion people to stay at home. How does the mortality rate they'll compare with the U. S. I think it's hard to know exactly what we don't have full, full data capture there. But one of the things that the mortality rate you have to look at it. What is the rate of death of individuals who were hospitalized there? It's going to be higher than in the United States in terms of if you if you're treated their how effective are the treatment? How much access to critical care do you have? And we know that there are places in the world that don't have the same. Adeptness medical care as his other parts, so you will probably see higher rates of death for those who get hospitalized. However, the total population that was a little bit more complicated because that will affect that will be impacted by the age of the population of morbid conditions of the population. But I do suspect we will see the deaths rise. Teo Teo high levels in the developing world because of the lack of access to health care, and the fact that this is going to go through their populations in away unabated by any kind of social distance.
From ‘pandemic pods’ to mask breaks: What Johns Hopkins experts say about back to school
"Virus. When their kids are going back to school or getting together in pandemic pods. The question of mask breaks has come up. Is that a good idea? Double d T o peace. Kate Ryan has our latest look at parenting in a pandemic doctor and that Anderson, deputy director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Safe and Healthy Schools, said anecdotal accounts of the spread of Cove in 19 after mask breaks were allowed suggest they may not be a good idea. Instead, she says, we have to help our young people to know how to keep their masks on, Anderson concedes. That's a tall order, but I think that we have to have more practice around how students can give incentives. Fact or being a strong and here's to this mandate because it's part of the safety protocol. Anderson spoken to Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Webinar Back to school concerns. Kate
What Contact Tracing Data Is Telling Us About How COVID-19 Spreads
"And NPR's survey of state health departments in the US finds few of them are publicizing data from their Corona virus contact tracing programs. As NPR's Selina Simmons, Duffin reports. Public health experts say transparency is essential in combating covert 19 Contact tracing happens when the public health worker calls each person who tested positive for the Corona virus, asks about their close contacts and then calls those contacts to tell them to quarantine on Ly 12 states and Washington, D C surveyed by NPR are publicly sharing the data. They're gathering from this process. I think it's a little bit scattershot right now, but the states that are doing it. It's a good star. That's Crystal Watson, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, who collaborated with P. R. On the survey. She highlights a few states including New Jersey, Louisiana and Delaware, that they're doing a good job, sharing this data publicly and hopes that more will follow their lead.
Questions arise over Washington DC private schools reopening plans
"Won't be doing in person classes this fall. But some private schools and day care centers are opening. The bottom line is that will certainly require masks and commitment to hygiene. But Dr Jennifer knows, Oh, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, says then a lot more variables come into play. We have to ask, you know what are the surrounding circumstances? How much infection is in the surrounding community? Take into consideration other family members, your kids might be around and think about what everyone else is doing and where they're going. Going outside of the classroom of parents do not feel comfortable sending their Children to school. Then I think we have to accommodate that. That might help because if we can actually reduce the number of kids who need to be in the classroom, then it might be easier to kind of physically distance. John Doman w T O
"johns hopkins center" Discussed on KCBS All News
"The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. Dr Kapali. Thank you for joining KCBS in depth. I think you're having me so every day it seems like we are learning a little bit more about this disease and yet honestly seems a little bit strange here more than four months in a this point to even be talking about masks because we've been talking about masks this whole time, So it almost feels like what is there left to say, But It does feel like we learned so much on any given day that you can kind of just return to these topics again and again. Because every time you returned, you're going to find something a little bit different. So I suppose what I would want to start the conversation with is just In the broadest of terms. What are the most important things that you think the public should know about masking at this point in the pandemic? Just based on what we've learned so far? So I think the most important thing the public needs to understand is that we know now that wearing a mask for everybody will help. Prevent further spread of this pandemic. Initially. During the pandemic, wearing a mask was recommended on Ly for people who had symptoms of disease and what we learned as we've learnt more information about the virus was that we learned that You can transmit the virus when you don't have symptoms, And as we moved into a situation where we recognized that there was widespread community transmission of the disease, and also understood that you could spread the disease when you didn't have symptoms. The change in recommendations for wearing a mask occurred. And that's why now we recommend everybody wears a mask. It's because we have to assume that everybody in the community is infected. And so when it comes to wearing masks, we recommend that everyone wears a mask that covers their nose in her mouth. Improvise a nice seal over the bridge of the nose and also on the sides of their Now at least let's flat. So you don't get any of those droplets going inside your mask and potentially infecting you through now. And I think that that's actually a really important point that you raised a second ago that there was actually a learning curve that went into the public health officials sort of about face on the mask recommendation, because I I think a lot of people look at the early months of the pandemic, and they look at you know, one second, there was AH recommendation not to wear a mask and in the next second It was a recommendation to wear a mask and a lot of folks I think took away from that that health officials made that decision purely based on the just that the shortage of masks, but there it actually, as you just suggested, reflects the fact that we understood a little bit more about the disease and more about the potential for asymptomatic transmission. Yes, I think that's a really important point. People hopefully will understand that with this being and new virus what we call a novel virus. That science is not going to remain the same. It's going to continue to change as we learn more about the virus. And if we think back to the early days of this virus, we did not know that we could transmit this virus from patient to her asymptomatic. That is something now we know and so because we know we can't look at people I know if they're infected. And again like I mentioned we don't know if people who Are infected are around us. We have to just assume that everybody has it, especially when we have such wide. Rates of transmission in the community and so with that new knowledge that we gained as the days and weeks went on. That was the reason for the change in the recommendation from public health officials. We've always always recommended that people who are sick who are symptomatic. We always recommended that those people were masks. In fact, we wanted the people to stay at home. So even if they went out, and they were wearing masks that they could not risk infecting people. But it's that the change in the information of the science of what we learned that the change in the recommendation for who should wear masks came about. Speaking once again to Dr Critica Kapali Bay Area infectious disease physician about the science of masking and what we've learned so far and to fill in that picture, I think that it would be really Good to start with. Probably the most basic question that informs. Basically, everything is our understanding of how this virus is spreading. And the longer things go on. The longer this pandemic goes on. The more complicated that picture is looking because It's seeming like it's not just surface to person transmission. It's not just person to person transmission. It's Ah, It's a little bit of everything right. So, uh, you know, Still the largest driver of transmission is going to be a person, a person transmission and It's going to be symptomatic person to person transmission. However, we do know that asymptomatic transmission is happening on DSO again. We need to do everything we can to try and prevent transmission of the virus. We need to try and stop the chains of transmission. Data has shown that for every positive case that is out there that will generate at least 10 to 25 contacts, and so we can't break the chains of transmission. We will never get this outbreak under control. And so the way we can help break the chains of transmission is by doing um, these non pharmaceutical interventions that we've talked about for the last few months, maintaining physical distance. Using good hand hygiene.
Should schools reopen? Balancing COVID-19 and learning loss for young children
"To school, a growing number of them are being told. Stay home. There will be no in person school this fall School District's from California to Georgia to Maryland are now gearing up for online on Ly instruction are citing the spike in Corona virus cases, but just how dangerous is it to send Children? His teachers and staff back into classrooms amid a pandemic. And why is there so much debate over that question? We have called Jennifer Nuzzo to take on those questions. She is a senior scholar with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. Welcome. Thank you. We're going to have you with us. I do want to start by asking. It seems there is just madmen, maddeningly little real information about the risks to kids and how likely kids are to spread the virus. Why do we know so little of this point? Yeah, it's true. I agree. There's not as much information as we like. We do have some studies that have generally given us the belief that kids are probably less likely to be harmed by this virus than adults. Also some information to suggest that they may be less likely to transmit the virus like they do you know is compared to other viruses like influenza, but it's hard to really study because you know, we've done these great measures where we've shut down and we've decided to stay home. And we don't fully know if we've kept kids home more and not as exposed as they would otherwise be. So it's fairly artificial circumstances. Yeah, I suppose kids haven't been in school since March, for the most part, so it's hard to study what transmission would would look like if they were I have noticed that a lot of the studies that have been published today have come from other countries. There was a big study that made some news out of South Korea that found kids. Older kids like they just had to 19 actually can spread the virus as well as adults that younger kids under 10 spread it much less. How much stock do you put in studies like that? Yeah, That's that, finding that there may be an age related effect with the older kids, possibly being a more worrisome case with the younger kids. That is something that we've seen elsewhere. That's at this study. I think experts feel may not be completely generalize along the sense that it was sick kids at home and not necessarily kids who don't have symptoms at school, but it's still important to learn from The CDC

CBS NEWS time, 9 42 How will World health authorities ever win the war against Cove in 19 if we don't Testa's many people as possible, Okay, CBS's John Evans tells us the science of Covert 19 is a work in progress. Just last month, the CDC estimated that for every known case of covert Kenmore when UN recorded researchers at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore estimates that in the US half a percent to 1% of those infected with covert have died and the rate could be higher. But we may never know because of the lack of widespread testing. Dr. Amesh Adalja at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, says another concern is the short and long term after effects of covert illness. What we're finding is that there is a subset of people who have mild illness. You don't require hospitalization. That do seem to have lingering symptoms. The virus has gone. Their blood work looks normal, but they have fatigue. They have difficulty concentrating, and it's really important to try and study that group of people understand. Why that's occurring and who it occurs to and what the risk factors and if there's any kind of treatment or waited for those people to get better after 14.7 million people around the world have been infected by the Corona virus. 612,000 have died.

is the trump sound bite from the west point speech to the graduates in the class twenty twenty where he what them know how special he thinks they are every graduate in this field could have gone to virtually any top rank university that you wanted you chose to devote your life to the defense of America he came to west point because you know the truth America is the greatest country in human history and the United States military is the greatest force for peace and justice the world has ever known bingo absolutely right it has never changed that has always been the case since the founding of the country the United States Army in the rest of the military branches it is always been the case we do not conquer we liberate the oppressed we do not take territory that is not ours well we took back your but then we probably gave it back to who owned it Europe France Great Britain we we well we liberated what the **** and taken and the world now is this the greatest force for peace and strength in the history of the world Joe Biden last Wednesday was on the Comedy Central network the daily show with Trevor Noah yeah I like these guys have two first names yes sometimes know what traversing the Trevor Noah you never know which names first and he was his guest was by now he said you may have people coming out many places to vote for you Mr vice president we saw in Georgia if those people's votes aren't counted then your entire campaign maybe mode if the Republican drawn I cheat voter fraud campaign on you know what you're gonna be able to do about it what's the plan up until November to make sure people can vote my greatest concern my single greatest concern this press is going to try to steal this election is the guy who said that all mail in ballots are fraudulent direct voting by mail while he sits behind the desk in the oval office and raise his mail in ballot to vote in a primary for chief of staff coming out and ripping the skin off of trump and you have so many rank and file military personnel saying whoa we're not a military state this is not who we are I promise you I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House in the very first grade dispatching you what is fascinating about this it is the Democrats who refused to accept the election results in twenty sixteen no there's Hillary Clinton in the last debate claiming you know asking watches Chris Wallace Mr trump if you lose the present campaign will you will you accept the results of trump said hell no I'm not gonna tell you that tonight I don't know what the hell's going to happen between now and the only tell you tonight you want me to concede defeat tonight I'm not going to do that that then big crowd will never leave he will claim you want trouble not he was going to destroy our collection of what happened and it's still happening we're in the fourth year of the Democrats trying to get rid of trouble the bases that he cheated and stole the election when there's never been assured of evidence for so now here comes plugs stupidly saying that he thinks trump is going to be the guy who will not leave office what's gonna happen if trump wins these people are going to goal I don't know how they get more insane but they will if trump wins in November I just I shudder to think I'm gonna love it but you have no idea what these people are going to do.

The Future of Surveillance
"The cove in nineteen pandemic is changing our lives in so many ways. And what's going to happen in? The future is still unclear. Are we going to have to download APPS? Will those under quarantine have to wear responds? Will we BE SCANNED FOR FEVERS? Every time we step into an office or restaurant I've been hearing all sorts of questions like these so I wanted to speak with Jennifer nozoe. She's an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. I wanted to know what role technology might play in our fight against this pandemic. Could we soon be using these contact tracing APPs here in the United States I think it's inevitable and in fact it's actually already happening? That public health agencies are going to use APPS to help them conduct contact tracing whether these APPs fundamentally change tact tracing is done remains to be seen. I personally it would be a little bit worried if we used APPs instead of people. It's not clear to me that we would get better data that way. The question is how are we going to use it? And what features of the technology are we going to use? It's one thing to use it to keep track of data and to help you analyzed data. It's another thing to use it to figure out exactly where someone's been over the last fourteen days and I think there are some important operational questions that need to be answered about those approaches as well as some potential legal and ethical questions we do use contact tracing in this country for other diseases. A lot of people are hearing this term for the first time but with foodborne illnesses and things like that. That already happens right yeah. It's a traditional tool of public health. Tr- instance in tuberculosis outbreaks measles outbreaks. And there is You know case investigations that happened with Woodward outbreaks to I would say the frequency with which it's used has probably decreased in recent years purely due to resources it's incredibly resource intensive to do contact tracing as public health departments over recent years have suffered budget cuts and declining resources their abilities to do contact tracing has declined and that's I think one of the unfortunate kind of preparedness erosions that we've seen over time that we're now in the midst of a pandemic trying to make up for by hiring possibly hundreds of thousands of new contact tracers when you think about the APP based technologies again in merging that with some of these human contact tracers to help supplement that sort of work. Can you give some idea of what life would look like then so there are a few different approaches? There's one method where the phone tracks your movement things off of Cell Towers and it knows where you've been and authorities potentially could take advantage of the ability of your phone to say where you've been to once you become a case potentially look back at where you've been for the last fourteen days and then use that to identify places where you may have exposed people to try to get in touch with people who may have also been at that same place. There are other approaches. Where you use the phone's ability to kind of tell who you've been near and to try to find people that you may have exposed that way that's seen as slightly less invasive because it's more about identifying who's been near you rather than exactly determining where you've been typically in the US and we do contact tracing it starts with an interview where you ask the patient basically remember all the places they've been when you're talking about fourteen days though it can be tough for people to remember exactly and so sometimes you have to use other methods to maybe fill in the gaps for instance for foodborne outbreaks. We try to figure out where you spend money over the last fourteen days as a proxy for where you may have been but we haven't yet in the. Us seen widespread use of the cellphone based technologies the Location Services or the more Bluetooth ones. That tell you who you've been Aaron. I think there has been some interest in potentially using these technologies but in my view these are the ones that have some questions around them in terms of public acceptability and what the limitations for their use are. So what does this mean for all of us? Are we moving toward big brother surveillance? State government officials are now calling upon Silicon Valley's tech leaders to try and help. We need to view this as an information problem when we need to come up with estimates for where the disease is and when we can find hotspots. Put Schmidt used to be the CEO of Google. Now he's leading up a fifteen member commission to help guide New York toward using new technology in the wake of Kovic. Nineteen the Google Apple.

The company claims that they can scan public surveillance camera footage to identify people who might have been in contact with confirmed corona virus patients last month they told NBC News that they're already in talks with several state and federal agencies to help with contact tracing
First U.S. coronavirus death came weeks before previously thought
"As we've been reporting this morning the revelation that people were dying of covert nineteen earlier than first thought the case is going back to as early as February sixth in Santa Clara county well over three weeks before the previously first known fatality to the illness in the U. S. were of switching out of the KCBS ring central New Zealand joined by doctor Amesha dolls a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins center for health security so Dr what does this tell us given the understanding that if somebody died from the C. probably picked it up well before that right we know that deaths usually occur in the second week of illness or even longer so if there is individual dying in early February in Santa Clara county likely were infected in January and then there's an incubation period so they're likely were exposed even before that so it's clear now that the first U. S. case that was the email on January fifteenth in the state of Washington likely wasn't the first case and we all knew that based on what we what we knew about the virus being able to spread efficiently from human to human being present in China since November so we clearly missed some of the early cases coming in you know there's been this sort of an anecdotal buzz going around among people to sail you know I feel kind of weird back in filling the blank November December maybe I had it does this give more credence to that kind of thinking it does give it some more credence but I wouldn't probably take it all the way back to November November I think likely definitely in January I would have a lot of suspicion and maybe late December as well because you have to look at how this outbreak was holding and when it got to a point where there was enough critical mass of infections in China to start sending cases other places and I think that probably late December it would likely hear and it certainly was here by the beginning of the beginning of January you know there's this other emerging knowledge that the deaths that we're attributing her scribing to covert nineteen at this point must not be the full number because there been so many more deaths in many places in the world than there were a year ago in the same month what what do you think that the delta is that we'll have the the factory should be applying it's hard to say because there are going to be death like these in Santa Clara county that work it should be to terracotta virus that would direct their direct result of coronavirus infections in our testing protocols made it hard to come up with that many answer at the time of death but it's also the case that people are likely going to die from heart attacks and strokes that directors that are gonna be indirectly attributed to the virus because Haas people are not going to the hospital hospitals are in places that are hot spots are basically barren so there is definitely going to be a bigger toll that that that just the pandemic numbers itself and and there is going to have to be a multiplier because we are going to see except that because of the pandemic but maybe not directly because of infection in this ocean going back and and re examining previous debts what more will it tell us I mean is it just an academic exercise purely or does it add to something we can use going forward well it does help us understand when this virus first appeared in the United States which will give us a better idea of how widespread it is and where we are on the epidemic curve which helps us predict the future and understand what our planning needs might be understand what they're not denominator people infected are which then influences what we use for hospitalization rates and we're putting those into models and what we look at a case fatality rate in there with those in the model so we can help us if we go back and find more and more evidence of earlier spread that helps us know where we are where we're going with this

S. immigration and consular law attorney Steve Margie who is based in New York by the way to examine what the president is saying regarding immigration I gather from your appearance on my daytime talk show that this is not much of a change in terms of practice it's not a chain to essentially be consuls and embassies are not issuing visas nor have been giving interviews for people to get their visas so they can't issue visas and that's what he's talking about essentially shutting that down we don't know to what extent but essentially that's already in place it is there anything in what the president has been saying and is it involving explanations of what he's been saying that that would in your view constitute a change and if so how much of a change not yes but I think that as you hear him discuss it and try to explain them verbalize it you can tell that he he hasn't really been completely thought out yet and recently he said something about how it could be modified along the way so I would anticipate subsequent executive orders that clarify and probably expand on on what we're seeing right now I must say that the subsequent explanations that we've heard from the president have been quite different from that initial tweet that he sent out which of course often lack a complete explanations of what the president has in mind but initially was to integration or at least temporarily and immigration period and it would seem that what's actually happening is it is a pretty nuanced and not quite that yeah I would say it's probably ten percent of what we originally thought the impact would be written off it would affect decisions others that are filed with the United States we thought that it might affect family positions that are being older people are waiting for the reasons overseas and so I had clients that were calling for family related cases business related cases they all were worried inside and outside the U. S. and now it looks like supposedly it's just going to affect people applying for green cards outside the US let's say that you were advising the president and that you had as a goal limiting immigration to the extent that it in fact did enable Americans at least temporarily for maybe sixty ninety days whatever to have a leg up on employment if you were advising the president to that end what would you suggest that the executive order ought to include I would say would include everything bottom we've heard we've heard references to this would actually make sense except it would essentially include all temporary visas and permanent ones except temporary work visas for agricultural workers because they felt the need that nobody else here fills and then all health related workers that we really need we were always looking for more of those during this crisis cement and limits of bills to the temporary visa classifications and nothing else during the pandemic I've had the dealings with the private sector and gotten various responses from nobody there two things are moving slowly to a few cases in which it was business as usual I have not had to deal with the government you of course deal with the government all the time but I'm wondering how so far your work in immigration and consular law has been impacted in general by the pandemic well a lot of it is slowed to a halt most of the positions that are are are applied for overseas like we talked about and then all the cases that require interviews in person here in the United States or taking of fingerprints or xterra mony is like for naturalization purposes those are all stopped now so essentially two thirds of my practice is grounded to a halt because of what's been happening in the past two months enough before this executive order what was announced are we the only country thinking about impacting their immigration policies because of the pandemic so far all I've seen is that countries are limiting travel to their specific nationals for the time being in order to reduce the cost of the spread of the corona virus I have not heard of any countries abruptly changing their immigration policies are halting the issuance of the socks and in terms of of where we go after this there are some aspects of our lives that may be permanently changed because of the pandemic do you think that immigration law as it is practiced will be permanently changed I think the US employers will get discouraged to a degree where they may not try to sponsor foreign nationals because we've already had a few years of high denial rates and a lot of problems with people getting pieces before the pandemic I think that their focus will turn inward to how to preserve and create jobs for Americans first and I think that will have a pretty strong effect on immigration probably one that will create minimize or or reduce immigration to the US just because of what's happening immigration and consular law attorney Steve Maggi who is based in New York lawmakers in California claimed.

nineties what how do they work what do they do what do the machine to and and either be used in the hospital for other sterilization procedures what they do is take a vaporized hydrogen peroxide and use that to decontaminate certain medical equipment and hi Jim **** cited the same type of stuff that people used to getting in bottles and using for their wounds I am in a liquid form said the basically taking that and making it into a gas form that used to decontaminate things and it's been used a lot of things that this is a developing future N. ninety five mask it will take I would just wonder why it took this long for this the approval to come for this kind of machine but since the machine's been around for a while they really haven't been used for that because we not usually it in

then the high frequency now with covert nineteen patients and that there is a just a general Africa trying to can I needed other sterilization methods work on in ninety five and there is now the data that supports the use of of I guess the big prize hydroxide to do this and and that's where you see the emergency use authorization coming from so these machines work by the present it is not a real high temperatures I understand it's a what do we think it will do to the reusability in other words could you infinitely reuse into ninety five this way no you can infinitely re use the machine and you do need that kind of market the how many times it's been re use and you have to look at the integrity of the map Anderson whether or not it's it's been compromised but I do think it will significantly impact our ability to get in ninety five different line workers you need to remember not every healthcare worker need to ninety five for every patient countering I'm I'm seeing patients you I'm not wearing that ninety five unless there's certain criteria met meaning that the patients having aerosol generating procedures done on them but that varies from hospital to hospital so but the fact is we we want to make sure that there are at ninety five for those the healthcare workers that need them for for their job because we want them to be to be safe and and feel secure taking care of these patients the FDA in its announcement of the said there are several thousand these machines already up and running in hospitals now if if they were being used for notified mass presumably they couldn't be used for whatever it is they're being used for now some is there any concern there no I don't necessarily here's a concern because they're often used in ships there there's certain chips and cycle that they used for sterilizing other equipment so I do think they can be able to fit these into that cycle and remember that many hospitals have decreased volume right now because there's been a little bit of a moratorium on on certain other procedures at the hospital doing their operating room volumes are down their registry department sends it out so they may not actually be using their full capacity of sterilization at this point so there will be excess capacity with that they could be absorbed by the N. ninety five mask that we in obviously this this is not the same everywhere but what are you hearing about the I. ninety five situation overall patchy so there are places that are hot spots in the United States like for example in New York City where there may be

probably in may I'm going to have any podcast what's not to compete with you I can never do that but it's called good warned us about the war between the human race infectious disease that's gonna

lost more army soldiers that year than we did in World War one many of them did not die of the influence of their bodies were so weak and they died of bacterial pneumonia and we didn't have

a Great Depression lies ahead still or well we don't really know what the impact of the economy is going to be that'll depend on how long we have to keep how much of the economy cut back I think it is part of the answer Randy I think that already there are any number of companies out there that we're putting along during the the boom economy that we had going and we did have one going in there they were marginal companies they were hanging in there they had customers in the like they knew they were they weren't making a killing but they were marginal and then came this I don't care how much aid

define it eight a recession is as your brother in law is out of work at a depression as you're out of work some people are going to be in a depression yeah I think it's going to depend on how long week takes to get through this and I think there will be a huge economic revival when we come back I think things are going to be a lot different when we come back it's really not I don't think anybody can forecast when it's going to be I know so many people talk to me they're worried about the four oh one K.'s or whatever and I go you know it unless you're sixty five years old now all your money in stocks and then you're probably in trouble but for a lot of the younger folks I'm talking to Hey if you want to come back in and we always know things and walking down the most important thing is both fundamentals of our economy in January were pretty strong and I think as long as this doesn't take too long if we can get through the worst part here in a couple months I think it will

Doctor worries about ending social distancing measures too soon

Are US Hospitals Ready for Coronavirus?
"To another corona virus question now which is our America's hospitals ready that is one of the most urgent questions public health experts are trying to answer right now other places in the world where the corona virus outbreak appears to be just head over here in the US they have already seen their hospitals overwhelmed thank Italy and your Selena Simmons Duffin and NPR's Marie Eisenman have this report on preparations here in the U. S. history here's why hospitals are so anxious to get ready for what's coming when hospital is flooded with more critically ill patients than it can handle more patients die the stakes could not be higher I wanted to find out what hospitals need to be doing so I went to a really busy one in Washington DC we are currently in what we call a ready room that is correct he at least he is director of emergency management at medstar Washington hospital center over to your left you'll see there's a card that has our training powered air purifying respirators this is our optimal level of rest it looks like a warehouse with exposed pipes fluorescent light streams in the floor they use it for training storage or whatever the latest emergency calls for when I visited they were getting ready to move carts of supplies out to turn this room into a patient screening area so if you show up and think you have colluded nineteen you might be screen here or in one of the tents are pitching in the parking lot when you present yourself you'll see signage that remind you please maintain your distance you'll be given a mask quickly and asked to put it even if triage goes smoothly that is just the first step people who are really sick will need to go to intensive care units I see use yeah this could be the real choke point for many hospitals in America for the average American city we would probably need twice the normal intensive care capacity than we normally have that's Dr Eric toner of Johns Hopkins center for health security he and collaborators at Harvard university and Nanjing medical university in China they looked at what happens to intensive care units in Wuhan China the first places outbreak hit we saw tens of thousands of ICU patients Turner estimates if the U. S. is the same rate of spread every hospital here it would have to take drastic steps to meet the need normally we put an ammonia patient in a medical ICO but they might have to commandeer any free beds in the ice use of all sorts of stuff lies departments in Rolla G. pediatrics the challenge those units are pretty full so already says some hospitals are planning to remodel other rooms even expand into larger spaces like auditoriums then there's the equipment people are I see you need all kinds of specialized equipment they need IV pumps that need monitors various kinds and most important for really sick people with covert nineteen you need ventilators machines that essentially breed for patients across the U. S. we have a finite number of outliers DLE told me at Washington hospital center they have extra ventilators ready to go we have twelve here in the corner I have another six in the back room he feels fairly confident about their supply and nationally there's a stock piles several thousand ventilators that hospitals could pull from but there is the issue of finding or training staff to provide all this extra care each hospital would have a surge plan will not only finding more beds but also then finding the the staff to be able to staff those beds which brings us to the problem of keeping health workers safe he d'elia is medical director of Boston university's school of medicine's special pathogens unit our health care workers are the most precious resource than this response she says if health workers can't protect themselves more and more of them will start to fall sick and so you're going through your cadres of health care workers until you get to a point now where you cannot provide the kind of care you want to do the patients they're going to need personal protective equipment masks goggles downs hospitals in Washington state have already turned to the national stockpile for those things the Delhi says her hospital has enough protective gear right now you know if you ask me in six months I don't know what the scenario might look like but nobody knows how many months this might go on for overall toner at Johns Hopkins glues that hospitals in the U. S. will just about meet all these various needs but that's on the macro level in some communities they will be okay in other communities they will be just making it and other places they will be totally overwhelmed even at a big sophisticated place like medstar Washington hospital center in DC they feel they have to get ready for the worst D. out the the emergency preparedness director says they have an ethics plan for how to make heart wrenching decisions who gets a ventilator versus who gets a bag valve mask versus who doesn't get either one of the two doctors are already making those choices in Italy based on age likelihood of survival clearly we all hope that we don't see that extreme here in this country but we have a plan if it came to that other hospitals I know have a plan as well but Turner says what people out in the community do now to slow down the virus that could change the picture for hospitals it won't be a walk in the park but I think would be manageable all the social distancing Americans are trying to do now shutting down bars and restaurants hunkering down at home might seem like an overreaction but those measures could be what makes it possible for hospitals to
Demand for ventilators spikes as coronavirus looms
"This subject of ventilators has entered the conversation in recent days as hospitals prepare to treat people with coronavirus one of the biggest concerns is whether the US has enough ventilators to treat critically ill patients and peers Patty neighmond reports the vast majority of patients seconded by the corona virus will likely only have mild symptoms but adults over sixty especially those with underlying chronic conditions are at the greatest risk of complications like pneumonia and they may need a ventilator if the US experiences the severity of illness on a scale like what happened in China Dr Eric toner says the US is not prepared we are not prepared nor is any place prepared for a Wuhan like outbreak toner studies hospital preparedness for pandemics at the Johns Hopkins center for health security we would see the same sort of bad outcomes that they saw in Wuhan with a very high case fatality rate due largely to people not being able to access the needed intensive care all hospitals have ventilators the number depends on how many beds they have an average sized hospital for example might have twenty ventilators if more are needed they could be rented but if there's a high volume of illness in one area the local hospitals would be competing to rent from the same place there are emergency supplies there is a strategic national stockpile of ventilators numbers classified so it's not clear how many extra ventilators there are estimates range from four thousand to ten thousand well any number of extra ventilators could be an important addition Turner says it likely won't be enough to sustain the US through able him like experience he says hospitals could transfer Asians to other hospitals that have their employers available because not every community is going to be hit simultaneously some cities will be badly affected while others are not so badly affected and then the wave of disease will move on but if the system is still overwhelmed then toner says tough decisions would have to be made about who gets access to a ventilator and who does not for patients with severe pneumonia ventilators can be lifesaving pulmonary critical care specialist Dr William Graham Carlos with Indiana University School of medicine the corona virus like many respiratory viruses can cause inflammation in the lungs and when the lungs become inflamed the membranes that transfer oxygen from the air into the blood become blocked making it difficult to breathe then later is that you see in an intensive care unit can supply higher levels of oxygen and also helped push air into the lungs to open them up and afford more opportunity to get oxygen into the patient ventilators are a bridge to recovery and most patients do get better Dr Craig Cooper Smith is a critical care specialist at Emory school of medicine and a spokesperson for the society of critical care medicine he says it's important to remember than China only fifteen percent of patients with corona virus required hospitalization and only a small number of those ended up in the intensive care unit we are prepared I believe but it does depend upon the size of the scale the estimates are so incredibly wide ranging that it's difficult to know how broad the pandemic could theoretically bay and just how many people will get sick enough to be hospitalized and need a
New cases of coronaviruses spreading outside of China
"As of today we have fifteen cases of cove it nineteen that have been detected in the United States with only one new case detected in the last two weeks we also have three cases among Americans repatriated from Wuhan and forty two cases among Americans repatriated who'd been stuck on the diamond princess in Japan two months on the corona virus Hey everybody Kate Delaney first you're the president he appoints pence to head charge against the corona virus then you just heard health and Human Services secretary Alexander ETS are stressing I'm in charge of this task force and talked about the corona virus following the announcement that pence would leave the US effort to battle that outbreak you must have said it three times I'm in charge listen I don't care who's in charge just tells whether we have to wear a mask and just how bad this is going to get stocks are spiraling pandemic has been mentioned at the CDC's website page on the corona virus says that the potential public health threat posed by CO visited the nineteen I'm gonna short cut it is hi both globally and to the United States so do I the centers for disease control and prevention or do I trust the vice president who's Mike in charge listen do I think pence can't collaborate with the pros the doctors everyone else and be the point person of course I think he can do that but we don't want any battles of who is in charge when it comes to letting us know what is and what isn't true because this is what happens and mis information leads to problems and that can lead to I believe the spread of a virus if you don't know what you were supposed to do I talked to doctor earlier today and said listen should I order these mass my family's supposed to go to Ireland in may who knows if that's going to happen because let me tell you in Europe especially Italy they are very worried about how much this virus is spreading and how easily it spreads and we here in the United States for anybody listening from the US because I know we have others who listen to the show outside of our borders thank you for that but the first person in the U. S. tested positive for the corona virus with no link whatsoever whatsoever to foreign travel this was a person in northern California how the person got this dreaded respiratory disease they don't know the CDC is saying it's possible it could be an instance of community spread be the first time it happened in the United States there's a first time for everything and they're also leaving the door open that the patient might have been exposed to a return traveler who is infected this is my fear all along as somebody who was just on a plane and in California for a week and got hacked over meaning right behind me then surrounding me on a plane this was my concern is that you're on a plane who knows where that person bounced from one wherever unlikely there but someplace else where they might have brushed against it so the state of California is calling the case its first instance of community transmission first case so to me this is scary that's the scary part we get the floating diseased ship the diamond princess we understand that we understand how people were infected there that makes sense this one doesn't make sense and I think this is pretty scary that what they're saying for example hi John Hopkins center for health security note health security that confirming this one patient there is a good chance that there are other people infected in the country and the virus is circulating on detected so what we need to know is what's the surveillance policy and how many more out there and how do you respond to that The Washington Post did a good story on tracking the spider web an excellent story on tracking the spider web of what could be when it comes to the corona virus just quickly a little more on the Solano county person and this week this was reported to the California department of public health they're being treated at UC Davis Medical Center and of course Solano county is home to Travis Air Force base hundreds of Americans from China were brought in there from that cruise ship and they've been kept in quarantine many have been released so now the health department is tracing people who might have come in contact with that person so that they can figure out one if more people are infected with it but perhaps with who they could have come across so to me this is something to be concerned about I mean it listen there's complications with this there's confusion support communications on the corona virus and mapping it figuring out how figuring out where all of that is so vital no I mentioned Italy so quickly I'll tell you what it's like in Italy Italy meant one of the most beautiful countries ever is that not on your bucket list or was it not on your bucket list hopefully not anytime soon because in Italy boy they're having a really rough time of trying to chase that spider webs down and the reason why is because we keep every time I turn around somebody else I has contracted it so the numbers in Italy just climate and their people are ordering and wearing the masks almost everywhere so if you're traveling in Italy in anywhere else internationally mask mask mask it up four hundred cases as of an hour ago confirms in Italy and in fact in the hospitals they're trying to scramble as much as they can to get enough beds and quarantine areas to be able to have more people are coming to be quarantined frankly because they keep discovering more people with it and of course they're sanitizing every area they can they're trying to contain it the World Health Organization said that for the first time the virus was spreading faster outside of China where it originated globally more than eighty thousand people in about forty countries have been infected with the coronavirus still the vast majority are in China but Italy hit incredibly hard if we were to look at a map and I would give you a key you know what a key is when you have different colors like let's color in this area this is where the bulk of it is I mean it's Italy is just covered the boot is covered some of the worst infected areas Lombardi right around my lan very close to Venice twelve people died in Italy so the government is taking this serious they're worried they're trying to trace it like I said they're having problems in having enough beds to figure out where they're going to put people schools universities
Who's in charge of the White House's coronavirus response?
"At the White House Vice President Pence seized control of messaging amid mounting criticism of his qualifications for overseeing the government's response pence is trying to project a sense of steady control. He appointed a Doctor. Ambassador. Debbie burks to serve as the White House Response Coordinator. He enforced tight control of the government's public communications and he added new members to the task force aimed at containing the spread trump on Thursday for his part continued to downplay the threat again. Trying to blame the media and Democrats for creating panic where he says there should be none. In an effort to combat further fragmented messaging pence has moved to seize control of all federal communications related to the virus. In fact he sent a directive requiring all Cabinet officials in any government experts to get written clearance from his office before making any public remarks about the virus. That's according to two senior administration officials tenses assertion of control came after trump lashed out and grew frustrated about some of the public statements made by government officials. Warning the public. The spread of Corona virus is inevitable the president viewed that is overly alarmist. This pence order drew immediate criticism from Democrats who warned that this is the vice president attempting to suppress critical health information that the public needs to hear one senior administration official who was involved in the response says that many people internally are confused about how exactly the response will be run. This official who spoke on condition of anonymity and again is involved in the response. Used a combination of expletives to describe the situation the officials had problems with the government created coronavirus test have limited the US government's capacity to rapidly increase testing. Now that there's been a confirmed case of community transmission in northern California. The White House official charged with leading the US response to deadly pandemics. Generally left nearly two years ago. As his global health security team was disbanded. He wasn't replaced despite the mounting threat of a coronas virus outbreak in the US trump.

T. and on the decisions of places so I can see his background you have to think about you know what's happening with climate change now and climate change of course is will eat influenced by of course you know any people know that most of the people realize that the energy sector is really important that you know about twenty five percent over the greenhouse gas emissions actually caused by agriculture and that's one of the reasons why we focus more more on planned I would take planned you know by had based or then for diets and think that's why it's so critical and so doctor bloom as you pointed out it's complicated here and so where do we need to be focusing our efforts to make sure that that nuances capture because I feel like we talk about this in a very macro it sense but it feels like maybe we need to be thinking a little more micro here yeah you're absolutely right so what is really interesting is that did did the souls of our paper were actually confirming many of the all the papers which has been published over the past two years to sell that in fact the U. S. in in in in in Canada Europe Latin America you definitely have to move to a more planned for diets I mean it's clear you know what is great for our health because we will have a reduction in in in Ghana disease as well as for example the city levels but at the same time is good for the climate situation a little bit different in lower middle income countries because all of the current production as well as the state in those countries it's not enough that these countries can provide dental predation than optional of healthy died six eight you know you start towards the upper class but not the text the majority of the people and that's fine if the will actually move forward in the direction they will increase their greenhouse gas emission as well as my which AT and also the first one to use but about two billion people you know to believe billion people live about in those in those countries I have quite still domestic so but the but you can actually do a lot in the in the rest of the world to actually you know to compensate for that increase in English classes in those four countries well I think you know your summation unjustly as some of the research you share with us is that the whole idea of we need to think about the supply chains we need to think about the food systems you know I think about in our world you know I've mentioned this often on our air about chipotle trying to figure out you know different ways of mass food production that sort of thing and so it's better for the environment better for for the individual doctor bloom really enjoyed our time with you thank you so much he's director John Johns Hopkins center for a livable future at the Bloomberg school of public health as we mentioned that school is supported by Michael Bloomberg founder Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg philanthropies joining us on the phone from Baltimore coming up we're going to talk a little luxury well actually we're gonna listen to a little later I get to listen to your part you're fine interview that you conducted upstairs at the year ahead we get a little bit of a sneak peek is as it was going live lively to say the least timely to say more than the least really good stuff there's a lot of deal flow and that includes Tiffany in the cross hairs of LVMH that we'll get into that just a moment first at the back to.

"People really. And then after twenty minutes of no information, no water. The bathrooms are unusable by the end that really frustrated passengers told FOX five news. It was the flight from hell there was coughing sneezing. Everyone had their temperature taken after two and a half hours on the tarmac. They were finally released. They met their families and a mob of TV cameras. Good afternoon. Five hours later at the department of health held a press conference. This was a flight that had five hundred and twenty one passengers one hundred of six of them presented with symptoms ranging from cough fever vomiting, but over the course of the day that number went down a lot just eleven people went to the hospital some had a minor flu others just had a common cold mostly people thought they were sick. So what happened here it doesn't? It doesn't make sense sometimes the symptoms themselves. Become contagious. We see this a lot like in high school is one person vomits and on the rest of the start vomiting. Dr adults is at the John Hopkins center for health security, basically, people got scared and freaked out fear is contagious. So I guess that's what ends up happening, which is the tagline from contagion. I think it's actually nothing spreads like fear. The question is did this fear caused the public health officials and the airline to overreact. And I do believe that what that pilot did on the flight was right? As inconvenient. As this flight from hell was for the passengers. It's thanks to SARS that there are systems in place. Sick. Passengers alert.
