Uganda's Elections: Singer Bobi Wine Takes on President Yoweri Museveni
"On thursday millions of ugandans will go to the polls to vote for president at the helm is the incumbent yoweri museveni a former guerrilla fighter who ousted to dictators. He's now been in power for more than thirty years. Mid seventy s up against a number of candidates but the man the forefront is a singer and politician. Bobby wine the world. Africa correspondent halimi. Condie is in uganda's capital kampala. So the votes coming up in a couple of days lima. What is the pre-election atmosphere like this has been an election. That people have been watching. Because it's so symbolic of what seems to be happening in the region. You have a young population against kind of the old guard on one hand. President mu seventy and his campaign. Slogan has been secure. Your future and on the other side is Somebody half his age. Bobby wine and his slogan has been new. Uganda and not kind of seems to be the crux of what we're hearing people say but other than that there have been real logistical challenges here namely slow down at the internet and restrictions on social media in fact during a presidential address today president seven actually admitted that the government was blocking or restricting access to social media platforms like facebook that impacts ordinary people as well as journalists like myself. There are also concerns about violence. What are people worried about specifically violence from security forces as well as excessive force. We've seen dozen at least dozens of people at demonstrations or caught in the crosshairs of demonstrations who have been killed Especially a couple months back and this is also impacting manley. Opposition leaders like bobby wine as well as members of his party and other opposition parties in fact during an interview this morning with a local kenyan radio station bobby wine was interrupted and this is what he had to say. Some sorry. i'm even right now as we speak being raided by the msci to end the interview. Because i can't see between my security. God what would that is pretty dramatic. Yeah and this isn't the first time last week i was on a press. Call with bobby wine and the same thing happened. During the middle of the interview you see security officials essentially pulling him out of the vehicle and this has kind of characterize this entire campaign season here. And i spoke with one human rights lawyer here. His name is peter mccullough and he works with chapter for uganda which is an ngo and this is what he had to say about. This election from bisham. Our rights perspective has been at beat of high-handedness torture harassed. A number of cases have been reported where people have disappeared and asmatullah. Okay where does seem to be coming from. And he says that all signs point to the top as an president museveni so what has been the government's response to this violence and these allegations against president and seventy. It's been singing unapologetic. I mean the government has really mostly accused the opposition at being the these troublemakers of undermining the election of inciting people to go against the election of ignoring covert health regulations that we've seen that have essentially restricted in person. Campaigning today spoke with a government spokesperson. If one opponent oh and this is what he had to say about members of the opposition or pushing granted they think that simply by virtue of being a presidential candidate. Some rules don't apply to you. Traffic rules apply one hundred percent. So i won't drive recklessly. You'll be stopped by traffic police and a tragedy. What he's talking about there is if you're here in kampala. What you'll see or rather what will here first or these trucks zooming around blasting music and campaign slogans but many pointed out that these rules aren't being applied equally these rules that are extensively for kovac reasons. I e limiting in person contact are actually only impacting certain people in this campaign are. That's that's the allegation and finally helium. What ordinary ugandans you meet on the streets as you walk around. What are they saying about this election. Really the biggest concern. I'd seen on. All sides is about violence and insecurity and this is something i hear expressed on the radio and on tv. Some people have actually left paula to go vote in their rural homes but also because they want to be away from kampala. This is a center of support for bobby wine. So if the election swings in the opposite direction we could see demonstrations or protests against the the outcome followed by heavy crackdown and today president. Mu seventy warned against any disruption and said. The army is strong. The army can protect people. The army is here. The question is is that reassuring for people or is that going to be something that scares people and keeps them at home. The world's halima condie speaking with us from kampala. The ugandan capital. Thanks very much. Could speak anki
The Heart of the Matter with Dr. Hafiza Khan
"All Right Dr Khan thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me today. Welcome to the woman I've actually been wanting to have you on here for a while now Oh thank you for inviting me truly. I'd been following you for a while from the woman account but I feel like I really started taking in more of your post like win Kovic hit. All of us have become a little bit more inwardly thinking yes route. Ourselves in our house will yeah. Yeah. It's been amazing and you'd have a really incredible way of delivering information that I feel like even a non medical person could digest it but like you explain it in a way that it makes it so easy. Well I'm the only doctor in my family. Really. I at. So always have to explain everything to everybody my mom my sister has been in their words. So I, my husband's not a physician either so. So I'm used to explaining things to. So I always think how they explain this to my mother and my sister. They would be able to grasp it. So God so And also. You know I think that I love to teach. So I always wonder why people follow me because I'm not exactly sure has with the code you know most of what I do is cardiology related on meet related but you know I have been reading. So a Lotta Times something I'm like, Oh my God this is so interesting I have to tell everybody I love that. So the. Air Purifier. I Call I people need to know this are people need to so anything that thing with the heart is everything affects the heart rape stress air quality, Kovac, so really because. I kinda tie almost anything in because you know it will always have a downstream effect to the heart. That's really true. That's really true. Well I think it's such a gift that you have and I feel like if I ever were in need of your services, I would really want you to be my doctor in that because the just the way you presented I mean you're taking the time and you're reading all these different studies, which honestly makes my head hurt like trying to like analyze and take in different like research studies but the way you present it, it's like Oh my God. Okay. That makes sense in. You've just become a very trusted source for me of information. So you know part of the challenges. You know the instagram format is visual right? So I myself an experimental so there has to be a pitcher right rail. That's why I have the you know like a board or something 'cause now I need to be able to find my own post all where is fish oil post? Right yeah. Yeah. But then I, it's Kinda creative. How do I get the the main parts of the data? Visually interesting way that succinct. 'cause you use only the caption I don't know about you but like sometimes my is just cross like reading that. Yeah option Oh. Yeah. So The caption is the attention grabber. I've been playing around with a like a slide deck. It's almost like a slide show yet Some things I need to say, so it needs to be a chalk talk. Has after dry or and it's just me and my iphone. So. So part of it is is. It's create. It's creative for me right has I have what I want to say, how can I do it in a visually interesting way? Also to be succinct. 'cause you know doctors go on and on and on and lectures can be like on and on and on right yeah. Yeah How do you get a key point? Get it across in an interesting way people like Aha I got. Yes. I felt that way after your I mean you you broke down the hydroxy clear Quinn steady and like you're like your chalk talk, you know you're nearly everything I was like Oh my God I want to learn from you every day. Yeah. So that's the thing. So it's fun for me because I have to pivot to different formats right depending on what I WANNA do Whether it's the easy thing for me to do an inspirational pokes grab insure of my family, right something inspirational I'm done in like fifteen minutes, right? Right. But to an educational pulsed. I would already do the reading. So I'm already rigged article and I think, Oh, this is really interesting. Then breaking it apart, figuring out how to deliver what a cute little emoji. Duo Voice. So that's the fun. That's the creative and fun part to make. Take a while. So. Yeah, I know. It's part of the brain that I don't normally use when I teach follows you know for that during a dry board lecture with the facts, right? Right. So this involves visual creativity, which is for me using the other part of my brain which. Is Fun and interesting to

Sunday added the warning label to a tweet from trump who tested positive for the coronavirus and claimed he is no longer contagious. Trump tweeted Sunday that he received a total and complete sign off from the White House yesterday trump said that means I can't get it in the tweet immune and can't give it.

Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings close facilities
"News that I wanNA start with right now. Is the story that's breaking out of Tennessee and hoping that there's not an outbreak of covert amongst the Tennessee Titans and their organization three titans players in five personnel tested positive for coronavirus for covert nineteen their tests came back this morning. We all know on Sunday they played against the Minnesota Vikings so. It is possible. It appears maybe even likely that vectors cross between two NFL teams with players potentially. Being. A symptomatic out on the field and having Kovac nineteen. Now then. It's downright frightening it does appear that the NFL has their first moment similar to what Major League Baseball had when the marlins tested positive. In multiple ways. And so we take it one at a time. One day at a time one test at a time, and so the titans ran the tests back. And those who tested positive return positive that does not appear that it is a false positive. So unfortunately that is. The story out of Tennessee. The good news. Let's talk about some good news the Minnesota Vikings according to reports. No positive tests as of now. And the good news is the NFL. Is using significant technology to trace and track. They have already determined that there are forty eight people who had close contact with the eight individuals who tested positive. That's a large number. But the fact that they have a number and they know the number and they can call these forty-eight people and say you've got to quarantine right now. That is good news.
Planning for an Aerospace Recovery
"Here we are. We find ourselves six months into the really the shutdown from the coronavirus pandemic Eric. What can you tell us about a I and what you've how you've been responding and how the industry has been responding to the strain put on us on it by the pandemic. But. First thing is a is almost a different organization. We we've continued working on those issues that are important to to industry. They're space defense, the four Cohen, and layered on top a series of things in response to Kobe and I think like most of us six months into this were not where we thought we would be when when this first hit when when the president has primetime address and down travel. To Europe and elsewhere we realized right away what we needed to do an initial phase because we had just come out of the Singapore air show. So we were paying very close attention to to this virus and it already put plans in place to go virtual should come to that and I. I work We've spent more time with our members during the stays that we had. All the previous two years I've been in this job and the first things we focused on were liquidity essentiality and flexibility. Thinking we've got to figure out the best way to keep a really enormous industrial base supply chain hole through this crisis was to keep it working. So we worked with the hill we work with government agencies like the Department of Defense to figure out how we. Can keep the work moving so that it would be pouring through the company. The money will be pouring through the large companies, all the way through the supply chain to to some of the very, very small companies that are members, I, and a part of that part of keeping them working of course, was declaring the these industries essential and then the third part flexibility, which is what I think a lot of people don't realize is each company has different needs and different strategies and how they're going to get through a crisis liquidity is is kind of a key element of that. But making sure they have flexibility to enact whatever strategies they have, and so they were looking for for funding either government or private that that maintain that flexibility that didn't come with two owner. Of restrictions and requirements attached to it, we learned as everyone else did that this was going to be longer term than we thought and so we have shifted into. Recovery phase really trying to figure out what what do we need to keep the industry keep the lights on during this so that it can it can turn on more fully and faster when we get past this, and that's where we are right now we've partnered with some agencies and firms to do research to figure out what's the status where we are now, and what do we need to do going forward. That's interesting. So you've partnered with some research firms to to get that information. When do you expect to see some results and how long do you see the Cova pandemic. Continuing well, it depends on what part of the industry. You're talking about. So you know we if you if you naked down, really we're civil aviation space and defense, and this is impacting the sectors differently although many of our members do work in more than one of those sectors and the supply chain while not wholly shared is in a very large part shared and so what impacts one part of of the aerospace industry Risk having impact on the other. So on the civilization side, it's dire. we haven't seen anything like this in Auburn Aviation history and the international projections are that it could take years to get back to the to the travel levels that we saw right before Kovac's that obviously is impacted our industry manufacturers. because the customers the airlines on flying because their customers, the passengers aren't flying and it's going to be a lot slower recovery than we imagined even six months ago. So our focus on the civil aviation side is keeping again, keeping the the companies as whole as possible, and a lot of that's focused on workforce in the supply chain. So we're we're working with Congress right now is they think through the next wave of the stimulus package both the house and the Senate on a public private Partnership where each side pay some portion of the wages of workforce that would otherwise have to be furloughed, keep them off unemployment. It keeps them with healthcare benefits. So there's an advantage to the government to participate, and then the companies they participate obviously contribute the bulk of the salary and keep that workforce hole so that when things pick up, it's
US refuses to join international COVID-19 vaccine effort
"I'm Anthony Davis. The trump administration announced that it would not take part in an international effort to test, produce and distribute approval nineteen vaccine despite the obvious benefit that would serve to public health in the United States and the clear electoral benefit it would provide for a president desperate to project to sense of pre pandemic normalcy as is the case for so many current presidential decisions the choice to opt out of. The high profile vaccine search appears to be driven by personal grievance. Trump will not allocate US resources toward the effort because of the involvement of the World Health Organization the respected group he has used as a scapegoat to deflect attention from his failure to respond to the corona virus. A White House spokesperson said, we will not be constrained by multilateral organizations influenced by the corrupt World Health Organization and China. Thus the United States will not be involved with the covid Nineteen Vaccine Global Access Research Facility which will have over one hundred and seventy countries collaborating to develop a vaccine and distribute doses to high risk groups worldwide. The downside for the United States is immediately apparent if the international effort proves early success and the US version does not the country will face a gap time in which Americans will die as more collaborative parties reap the benefits but the American decision to bail will also impact the Kovac. Strive. The idea behind Kovacs is to discourage hoarding and focus on vaccinating high risk people in every country I without. The aid of the world's largest economy. It's possible that more defectors will emerge with the vaccine push being turned into a race with real winners and loses similar to the bidding war trump instigated with states bidding against each other for P. P. ultimately driving up the price since the beginning of pandemic, the president has accused the W. H. O. of taking a deferential approach to China but such a charge may be a simple projection as he also thanked President Xi. Jinping. In January for keeping the virus control, he then ignored the WHO's
How Some Companies Survive, Even Thrive, in COVID-19 Crisis
"Company that survives covid nineteen is probably better off today than they were before Kovac's knackers since the pandemic started, it is a battle of retail attrition out there this is crucial to understand because it's transformed our economy in profound ways. Insane numbers here smackers get this eighty thousand small businesses have permanently closed from March, I July fifth according to Yeah and if you just look at the shopping and retail industry twenty, six thousand businesses that used to compete with best buy where open on. March first but are closed today and the wild thing is that the devastation to small and medium businesses across America is actually this huge boon to the big corporations case in point consulting company Deloitte recently surveyed the CEO's of one hundred large American corporations. Yes. Sixty percent of them are more confident. In their company's growth today than they were before covert and we're still amid pandemic. How could that possibly be that? CEO's are more confident post cove it than they were before when things were seemingly really basically covert has improved the business outlook for America's biggest corporations simply because it's smalls, corporations are gone sad but critical not to forget that
"Radio Muller" Is The Key To Bayern Munich's Success
"Surfer Thomas Miller has been at the heart of this buyer Munich team and really the heart of the club for more than a decade now I could you just describe what he's like as a person? Is Very funny or anything all I have time I have time and then me the road runner they have to by roadrunner cancer had the steal ball doesn't always come across in English, because it's very difficult for humans to translate well but he is very funny in minutes I ever show with A. TV team, I say completed. No Fun. Is. Very intelligent straightforward I think he has good sense of what it is. That makes a team successful. Thank you for the mets trophy. But I think we have Maybe twelve or fifteen players. That deserves the trophy as well. We worked so hard. We work with and I think on top of that. He personifies what it means to be a bavarian. You know buying is the German word for that area just very wealthy very beautiful. It is the stereotypical. Germany for most foreigners who we think of deer think of people lederhosen people sometimes look down on these guys lederhosen their beer as being slightly simpleton maybe a little bit argument and and Brash Ovens. But for for Bavarians, it is a sense of pride after the training session the stars took part in the traditional power Lana Lederhosen photo shoot. And when you combine that with buying as a football institution who play on that heightened sense of Bavarian, he think represents those contradictions but also the the bland and the combination of these things in a way that no other bind player does at the moment. And in terms of soccer. I have to say Thomas. Miller is one of the strangest players I've ever seen. Can you explain what makes him so unusual he is strange because he holds a really important position for one of the best teams in the world without being necessary obviously a gifted player. Because of his spindly legs and this upright running frame and this, he looks like a middle distance runner than a footballer I try not to be that muscular than my teammates because Less weight on my bones, his less injury, and that's my secret. It just don't see the the beauty elegance to so even the power the most played at this level brain and there's always something ungainly love it awkward about the way he and controls the ball he likes to Shin The ball router. Hindi cleanly speak about jumped all the time. Is Elite. I think once said that he's the best worst player in the world. I once thought that you know he was playing with a white t-shirt underneath his shirt poking out as some kind of wife beater show underneath and maybe I was imagine it almost got the sense that he was doing it on purpose to just give the impression that this is just this random guys just walked onto the pitch and he can't possibly be any good and opponents look thinking. Who is this guy and then twenty minutes later he's got two goals against them. So I think he's perfected that sleight of hand and is quite happy that people still think he's somehow know a good player and I think it takes you quite a bit of time and and different viewpoint to understand what it is yet she brings to the team and I tried to explain that my my biggest quality is maybe. The game without ball because in this time we had his game is all based on on movement on ideas on the interpretation of space as he wants himself, put it. So eloquently than my qualities to do to get in the right space to the right time. Maybe. Space Interpreter. But what does is so incredibly effective it's much easier to understand why successive bind coaches have founded absolutely necessary to make him keep playing a key position and also why successive coaches who haven't been able to see the beauty of mirrors game. F-. Often found themselves fired will speaking of that last season under Niko Kovac Thomas Miller spent a lot of time on the bench way is that I think you could call it just didn't understand what was the devil was doing for. Him Kovachev, slightly more reactive systems more defensive system. He often played with three midfielders and three attackers. So middle often found themselves very far away from goal. So you really losing the best attributes familiar plane in that position and eventually almost but I have of applies knows wide positions and if anything I will use them as a backup for the doc- through the middle is mistake was to say that to Miller you you're my backup option which didn't go down well. And because the results were bad because you know unhappy million addressing is not not a good thing. It all add it to the reasons he coach was eventually fired many. He mishandled Muna mishandled the team N.. Misunderstood I think the the real importance of murder which now has become apparent when small.

Well these all of us you know government legislators acumen and the whole of the the public sector eighty two the by to agree why is required in by Welsh on Ford P Phillips. I'm the director of the surgical materials testing laboratory. We based in Princess of Wales Hospital in Regent. We've been around for forty years in one form or another. We provide testing of medical devices to wash. Nhs UNTO particularly twelve procurement. All the gloves that we you've let us in ways if you're an each workup will would have come through all the Bodry to make sure that they comply with European standards and we provide technical advice to procurement on what of Standards and regulations. They should be applying. We've been I would say Cinderella Service Fall of almost Mike Korea. We've sort of come to prominence in the in the last four six weeks because everybody's looking test data and regulation of devices and P. P. E. We rapidly together a team from within. Sm T. L. who are good about five or six. I work in every day and we put an extra people in as required on are not just from ourselves. By the way from health technology ways in seed and some consultancies as well and we are screening all the certification that comes through to Graham's team so the life sciences had screen the the the initial a trench teen than deal with those who seem a promising and then we actually look in detail at the tickets that they've applied in the test ripples so we talked in broad terms about the demands on Industry. What about the role of Life Scientists Have Wales Shutting Matthew in the head of industry? Engagement at the hub explains now role is to support the acceleration on the development and adoption of innovative solutions for better health and well being of our nation sent more recently we during the Kovac nineteen outbreak. We've held a slightly different role. This road has certainly demonstrated to us the breadth of support that is out there across the nation of people wanting to to help in this very very difficult and challenging time. It's demonstrated in over fifteen hundred responses through the portal of organizations and people wanting to support this very difficult time and help the deliver the right products at the right time. Companies thought have fulfilled. The criteria are informed that they have been referred from the life sciences onto the various buying partners of which they're all a number so industry. Whales plays a an excellent part in this We've managed to forward offers people wanting to help with producing gowns so textile -tunities people have come forward offering manufacturing space. An all of those referrals have been sent on to the appropriate people. Those that have not fulfilled the criteria. Have all been sent a message explaining why they haven't fulfilled the criteria and given the opportunity to reconsider their application and then if they then are able to fulfill the criteria then they're referred back to the appropriate person. Fifteen hundred sounds a lot. So how do we get from an inquiry that looks promising to position of an individual being able to make a valuable contribution to the NHS? He is Greg Davis take A fluid resistant gowns. That we've been we've been buying. We've got a couple of enquiries one came to interact one came through the life sciences portal. We've got help from whilst governments. You Know Industry Wales Economy Industry. A to this applies to products the prototype. You need to get him. Certified and tested and peach symbol. Do the the checks on the patient. Testing eight mentioned it without doubt. We are using them more than we have before at too rapid pace. And they've done a great job. You know trump health but trying to help while supply base direct people to ask them. And then who would this lots of questions year round having certification? Should you have said indication what to see me mocking me? So just explain exactly what the requirements should be able to ultimately clegson old if a p any just wells some of the things that people think was p p such as the surgical face masks which are commonly known as type. Two all masks are actually medical devices other types of mosques are PPI respirate the mosques f. f. p. threes and then hand Gel Bigly using a commander and the sites so we have three sets of regulations. Medical device regulations P. personal protective equipment regulations and by your side regulations. And it depends what you're trying to sell to the NHS which set of regulations you need to comply with alongside the regulations. We have standards the type to our master mentioned. It's a medical device in the NHL. If you WANNA sell us a mosque like that you have to comply with the European standard. Which is one four six eight three? And if you sell respirator. That has to comply with E. N. One four nine two. So you have to have two things sorted. You have to have standards compliance which shows the performance of your device and you need to make sure it complies with regulations. That's where the C. E. Mark comes in so medical devices AC- earmarked under the medical device directive or medical device regulations and. It is basically the authority that you're given to sit when you put the C. E. Mark on your product. It means you comply with the essential requirements of that directive.

The Fight Against the 'Sheriff Joe' of Massachusetts
"Listen I wanted to talk to you. Because of the current case attack happening in Bristol County and the lawsuit that you guys have filed before we get into the recent developments. Can you explain exactly sort of history of this lawsuit? And who you're representing so people get the context. Yes we filed a corona virus class action against immigration and we focused specifically on the detention facility in Bristol County Massachusetts of which is run by the Sheriff Thomas Hodgson who is a a poster child for right wing anti immigrant policies and practices He fashioned self Under mold of Sheriff or Pyo from Morocco County Arizona Who was notorious for his anti immigrant in inhumane practices at who eventually was sued very successfully for discriminating against Latino community Not a first time. Suing the lawless sheriff at here in Bristol County. We have sued them repeatedly And it always pivots on extreme practices against Latinos one of our earlier lawsuit against Bristol County. It's because they were refusing to release Individuals who qualified for sale even though they had no legal basis for keeping them. They were not allowing them to post bail because they were immigration immigrants. Just based on Durham Immigration Status and so we successfully sued the sheriff over those practices of Bristol. County fast forward to this pandemic were seeing the same problems. essentially an institution where immigration trump's public health and that cannot provide any type of support for people who are at risk of Corbin nineteen infection and the conditions in Bristol. County are life threatening. They are unconstitutional. And that's why we sued. We sued because we knew that it was just a matter of time that the Bristol County facility becomes lit with Dacoven nineteen and just lights up like a tinderbox and so our lawsuit is based on the humanitarian release of immigrants who cannot be safely capped in immigration custody. It's what's happened so far from what I understand you. You had a decision that allow for a full out. You know several immigrants to be released. Let's talk there. Let's just keep time. Let's keep tick talking this and when you talk about it when you mean unconstitutional constitutional and conditions. What does that mean exactly in the context of the law? Well the the law is very clear. That detention cannot have cruel or inhumane aspects and so we're talking about exposure to Kovac nine teen and the failure to provide adequate and protections as an added punishment to people right you. You're not taking precautions to prevent the spread of disease and in so doing. You're subjecting. These immigration detainees to illness infection and potentially even death that is not a part of the punishment that is not a part of the detention. And so that's what I mean by unconstitutional conditions. It is that risk very serious risk of infection because the facility has not done enough or or anything really to meaningfully and materially. Protect the immigrants. And so were really happy to see that over. The course of this corona virus class action that we filed in Bristol County we have secured the release of fifty immigrants from the facility. Which is incredible. So tell me about what happened on Friday. At least what you you understand happened. Delegation has been contentious The federal government refuses to release the individuals. And it's really happened through court order. One by one through court order up to fifty now But the situation has been tense and Bristol County. Sheriff Has Gone Fox News and done other media programs to express public enter About the lawsuit to express anger at at me at my legal team at the judge. calling activists Saying that we are
How COVID-19 disease models shape shutdowns
"First step today. We're GONNA check in with contributing correspondent Hi Cooper Schmidt. He's been reporting on Corona virus for months and just a note. Were recording this on Friday march. Twenty Seventh Haikai. He wrote a story this week with international news editor Martin answering about the order of modeling as the current virus sweeps around the globe. Why did you focus on forecasting disease? Spread forecast. Saw models have always played a role in the outbreaks that have written about buying. I think potential outbreak there have been more important than ever have been and the reason is fairly simple. A lot of the outbreaks that we've had in the past have been with pathogens that we know a little bit about that have been around for decades sometimes sometimes we have vaccines or we have drugs against them with. Kovac nineteen or with SASCO Baotou. We don't have anything we don't have any pharmaceutical interventions basically. So what we're seeing at the moment is the whole world trying to apply non-pharmaceutical interventions which is lockdowns social guessing physical distancing as we should probably call it the handwashing hygiene and the models. Become extremely important. If you want to understand which of these measures are going to be most likely to have a big effect and when you need to implement them and how government policy in most countries has been shaped immensely by the models that that researchers have come up with and I think that makes these models extremely important and it puts a lot of pressure on the people doing these models to huge responsibility. This isn't cutting edge science per se. The models aren't new. The math isn't tricky but getting the key. Variables can be really problematic. What important facts do we have? And what are we missing when we build these models? Well it depends a little bit on what question you want to answer. We have more or less nailed down some of the basic parameters of this virus. So how many people as every infected person in fact the how long does it take for an infection to run its course but at the same time of course there's stuff that we don't know for instance how many people have infections that has been from the start a huge question? We will only be able to answer that once we do big surveys with serology so looking for antibodies in people trying to understand how many people might have added infection but never were diagnosed cases so there are some some of these questions but of course if you're really modeling should close schools or should you advise a look down other things become immensely important as well for instance stuff like how. Many people are actually going to adhere to this advice. How long does it take for people to do this? Characteristics of the population exactly n and just very basic things like. How do people live together like if people stay in the household with two households looked like what context do households have in? Where do most of the contacts happen? Outside of households are kind of contact is actually. They'll contact that spreads the disease while of these things. Do go into these models and so there is a huge uncertainty and these models and I think one of the problems that both journalists have also politicians have. Is that when you read just the conclusions of model? It can suggest a lot more certainty. Then there is. I mean this is still your a fairly new disease that we don't know a lot about and there's a lot of other factors that are just as uncertain when you're modeling spread. Are there different models being used by different countries or different regions? Are these differences? A problem I don't think the difference is so much kind of model you're on. Most models are fairly consistent. I think the question is. What do you use the models for what you want to maximize their was this idea to try to find a middle way? You know at the moment we have to sell them up between issue like this virus spread. It is going to cause disease and death on a scale. That's just terrible on the other hand. It seems that what China did might curb the spread of the virus. It has done in China. But if you do that. You're basically locking down joe population for who knows how many months and tanking economy while he's doing it and causing a lot of knock on effects also terms of mental health and other things so both of those options seem kind of terrible and so some of the models were trying to find a middle ground. Joe. Is there a way to lower how much the virus spreads Joe make sure that it only spreads in that part of the population that less susceptible to equate calls severe disease and the Netherlands? Uk have kind of been the two examples where actually the the heads of state have gone out and said we are not trying to completely suppress this virus window. Trying to get case down zero. We think the better option is to let it spread a little bit and make sure that it doesn't spread so much that it overwhelms our capacity of the hospitals to to deal with cases what what about if a drug came out or a vaccine in people had died because they were part of a plan to expose the country slowly. You know that'd be terrible. There'd be a lot of life lost in you know. Is this something that can be accounted for and models use of the vaccine or discovery of a useful drug. Go exactly this. There are some things that just won't be in the models like if we do find a drug treatment that kind of reduces the risk of dying or when vaccine becomes available that can change the things I mean nobody will probably become available too late to really matter in the next year but certainly that might be drugs that we can find like available drugs can be re purposed that might lower the risk of dying from this that might lower the strain on hospitals and it depends a little bit on. How like you think that is how much you're willing to risk at this point. The other thing I just want to point out I mean if you do this you can model a lot and you can chart a very narrow path to an outcome that you want but when you're doing this in a landscape of so much uncertainty it's just an extremely risky proposition to say okay. We have one model here that says if we do exactly these things and if all goes according to plan then we might be able to avoid tests for fee and. I think that's where you've seen a lot of pushback from other scientists and both the UK and to a certain extent. The Netherlands seemed to have come closer to the approach that other European countries are using right. Which is to try to contain the virus as much as possible for as long as possible. Exactly let's turn to the possibility of a drug treatment for this outbreak. So you wrote this week with John Cohen. Another of our reporters who's been covering rotavirus wall-to-wall like you a story. On World Health Organization launching a global trial of drugs that might be effective against Cova Nineteen. And it's actually four drugs and their intention is to involve hospitals that are actively treating patients and testing. These drugs is this something that's been started already. Hopefully by the time the podcast comes out. Bullets started at the moment that giving up the hope was that they would have the first patients this week. I haven't checked in with them today but they might well announced in the press conference today. So it's pretty unprecedented. I mean we're in the middle of the global pandemic and we don't have any drugs and because it takes too long to develop new drugs. Probably they're just really looking at all the drugs that are available already. That might be repurpose. That might have some effect on covert nineteen. What drugs are they looking at? And how are they chosen the? Wto has a panel of experts. That have been looking at drugs that possibly could treat this Since January and kind of came up with this priority list and reach Leon who has deciliter which is an antiviral drug that was originally developed to treat a bowler and similar viruses had actually failed to do anything in a bullet was tested in the DRC during the carnival outbreak and didn't have any effect but there is some data from animal studies and from Cell Culture Studies that suggested might have an effect against will be too so that's kind of top of the list and some patients in the. Us have been treated with the frustation in snohomish county in Washington state was treated with a and does the any. Am that describes how he basically got better after a day of does. That's not evidence that this drug is working but people certainly have more hope that this might have an effect on some of the other drugs the second one on the list is an old combination drug against HIV called collateral. So that's two substances revere via the idea there is that this combination drug actually acts against approach of issues that the virus needs to to produce its proceeds. It might have the same effect in Saas Cova to we. Don't really know there's one study that was done in China where one hundred ninety nine people were treated either with this combination drug or just the standard of care and they didn't actually find significant difference in outcome but one of the problems that we have with of these drugs of course is the sickest patients are getting these drugs because the hospitals are overwhelmed. And they're mostly treating the rea- sick patients but of course it might already be too late to have a really good effect of these drugs when you give the bed late in the disease.

Primary for the GOP nomination for governor and secretary Quebec joins us by phone now to talk. About all this security Quebec will you win. The primary today because of the, president's endorsement you it's too early to tell but I think there's no question that the president's endorsement helps in any Republican primary certainly moves the needle the the polls indicated that the race was within single digits maybe seven or nine percent are lead with Brooks rape But you. Know the the polling is often wrong so I'm I'm obviously, very honored and happy to have the president's endorsement because it certainly, will, help push undecided voters are way I'm wondering how much pressure that? Puts on you as a, candidate the president overriding his advice from his own political advisors they didn't want him to get involved in. The race at all but he's going with his gut he's. Backing you how much pressure does that put on you Oh it doesn't really put pressure on. Me you know I I've been close with the president advising him. On immigration election issues for for years now and so. You know I know that people were already sort of associating president, and that you know we're on. The same team, and we wanna win so didn't really pressure Sir, curious we we haven't spoken to you before about your about your contest here why are you running against a fellow Republican who. Is a sitting governor Well one thing listeners may not be aware of is when the race started. About everybody started jumping around June, of twenty seventeen he was not sitting governor Sam Brownback was governor of Kansas at the time and, my opponent Lieutenant. Governor then in January of this year Brownback took an ambassadorship in the State Department and that elevated my opponent who previously was Lieutenant. Governor, the governor position and so he was already a. Crowded, field at that point with five major candidates in it and the others. Weren't gonna get out no I just because? He went from the governor Let me talk to you about some. Of, the issues that are going on right now Some of the president's. Plans call for trade and tariffs and those are of great concern to people in Kansas I want to know where you stand on, some of the issues that have been brought by. The Trump administration concerns about stealing aluminum? The, future, of NAFTA particularly to. Your own constituent, so where, are you on that issue well yeah, that's a great question because. In Kansas of course we we pretty Salata soybeans and. Wheat and those two and corn and those three commodities all are affected by tariff situation and indeed. I myself with on a small farm and we have soybeans in the field right now. So there's no question that potentially, we could feel it in the in the pocket book one time comes around for harvest and then the older made my impression going around the state of Kansas and my position which I believe is consistent with most cans is, we have to hang tough and stand with the president, right now because he's gonna go she -ation process.
