"7 40. Are you more lethargic than you normally are on Monday morning probably ate too much. I overdosed on Cuban sandwiches during the game because my wife sent me out to, uh 90 miles. They've got a few Cuban restaurants around and it's not exactly it's not Miami Cuban food, but it's pretty good for Chicago, and she was taking some pictures for her. Website. She always post a lot of recipes on that savvy dash planet dot com site and so she was taking pictures of Cuban food. And so after the photo session, Of course, it was time to eat. And you know, she cut him up into like a little like sliders. And that's very dangerous. Because when that happens you like 100 of them, right? So I'm a little slow today here. Um What did you think of that Vince Lombardi appearance? Didn't you think that was a little creepy? Yeah, well, I'd seen the tea's They've been running for a few days with it. So first time I saw it was during the game last night. Yeah, well, they ran a rape before the game. They ran the extended version right and they ran it again, write a short version during the game in the game, right? Yeah, I was reading today that The studio used historical footage of Lombardy, and then they shot some footage of an actor and they use something called proprietary face swapping technology. And the NFL worked with Lombardi family through the process, including the development of the script, but I just thought was creepy. But when it Hey, when I George Palace next year, I mean, is this gonna be a trend We're going to see now. Well, I mean, it's It's pretty remarkable when you think that Vince Lombardi last coached a game. I think he died in 1970. So the guys who are playing even Tom Brady isn't really old enough to remember. I mean, I'm sure he's a student of the game, and he knows about the party. But I think for most people, I mean, it's it's good a good thing. I think to kind of pulled some historical figures from your past. Maybe you're right. Maybe George Palace would be good to bring back run some actual clips. You know they can reach restore those old clips with little process and make him look good. We have the real thing. I would go with that. You know, you always see the footage of Lombardy and Alice on the sideline Wrigley Field. It's great stuff on And I meant to ask Adam, hold this. But, Dave, you probably know the answer that quote this question. When did it start? The teams that win the toss, always defer and shoot and choose to kick off. It's been It's been that way for a long time, and just about football that every level but what I know originally there were some occasions where, because of the wind They would they would choose to do that. But now it just seems like no you win the toss you You want to kick off you want. You want to get to teach your defense out there first and put the other team's offense on the field because it's going to get you potentially a neck stra possession in the game, because, you know You're gonna have the ball first in the third quarter, so you can kind of plan the way you play, Especially as you get towards halftime sort of the way you you play it hoping maybe you'll get A neck stra possession or two inside of the two minute warning. And then you know you're gonna get the ball back right away in the third quarter, so you can You put yourself in position to potentially take control of the game. Plus, if you have confidence in your defense, especially is I think both these teams did going into the Super Bowl. I think you feel like you could make an early state a statement early stand. Remember Kansas City did that. I mean, they forced him to beta. Go three and out. First time they had the ball in your thinking. Okay. Now give my home's the ball. See what happens, right? It just didn't work out. No, I didn't. I didn't think it was uncalled for. For the CBS announcers, though, to refer to the Bucks kicker as a suck up I feel it is. That's a pump. Maybe you would think that especially Big kicker. And what the other kicker? They're both. They're both really good. The Chief's isn't his name. Something like What's his name? His? His name is Bucker. But here? Yeah, that's it. Yeah, See, he would have played well in Chicago. It's kind of a hybrid between dick buckets, right? Yeah. And then you think a Butthead to Kevin Butler Butler the ball together? Have you noticed something different about the Chicago skyline? Lately? We have some interesting little tidbits of information about Chicago architecture to talk to Blair came in about will do that. Coming right up. Let's check on a couple things here first,.

"Friends. David Lombardy from the athletic is going to join us at 10 30, his latest about the Debo injury and how it could change. The 40 enters offense won't get into that in a minute, Kyle Today's resume call right after the show about 3 30 gave an update on some injuries. Some good. Some bad will give you that. But one thing I wanted to mention, and I know you're aware of this, but I don't think we've mentioned it yet. Tim planner is dealing with a staph infection. And as they put it, release out their family. Tim was admitted to a hospital in San Diego Sunday, October 18th or is being treated for a staph infection. Responding well to antibiotics even question his guitar be brought to him. Eso. He's posting updates on his Facebook page, a Tim Flannery and the lunatic fringe so you can check out the updates there, but it sounds like he's doing better. So that's good news. Hey, I've known about it for Ah, a few days to have in facts who is our boss at NBC Sports Bay area and it is the tremendous Devout fan and friend of flames been keeping us updated, So he was at the ranch. He had excruciating back pain. Came into San Diego from the ranch when he gets off the grid and call 911 on Sunday. They finally got him and they found a little something on the spine, so he had to have emergency surgery. And then you know, developed a staph infection was really concerned me. Bilking died from a staph infection. And ah Ah Dick Schapp died from a staph infection. A lot of times you go into the hospital and you have a procedure done and you can get a staff for a bacterial infection. But they got him on antibiotics, and there they seem to be working. There's some other areas that he's worried about. Right now. I did text him and I got back a strange response, which clan They had three letters back, John. I don't know what this means In the texting world, H M k. You have any idea what that means? Or was that just Ah! I'm hitting the wrong digits for this guy. There's something right Some somebody got to his phone, so I don't want to bother you. But I am getting updates from Devon and people close to him and Ah, he's you know, we got to pray for him. He's he's too tough guys. Tough S O B. What he has is significant and he's got a few other things he's got to deal with. So He's just a great guy. Last time we had him on the air. Hey, we kind of you know we had him on because of the Pablo. Got the F 1800 pence a few weeks before he really is off the grid this year. Hey, is completely detach from everything that he loves going up to the ranch and just Getting away from it all. S so I haven't really communicated with a much we text occasionally, but you know, he's because he's that he's off the grid, and she says WiFi Availabilities spot. He'll get back to you a few days later, but he came out and you could hear it this hard. I mean, just how much love he has for everybody in the world and He's just that kind of guy. He was a white hot competitors to go back and watch the brawl. They had 84 against the Braves. It was right then that all of it But hey said, you know, family things with his Children, and he's just He's such a quality person really to me. I think he was the soul of the team, at least from a coaching staff. You know, Hunter coming over. But he just He had so much texture and humanity. And just what a guy so you know we're thinking of them. It's it's it's. It's been good. The last couple of days, the updates have been far better on flan. But he's not out of the woods yet. So until then, get out of that hospital and walk out of there. We're gonna We're gonna keep praying for Flynn. Yeah. So I just wanna make sure we made a mention of that again. David Lombard is going to join us at 10 30. We'll get into the 40 Niners. Start looking at Seattle, but more about the injuries and how everything is going to change depots going beyond. We thought this was going to be out a couple of games with the hammy Wilson's going to go on I R. With the high ankle sprain, Kyle said. It'll likely be About a month in Faras Depot in the two games. You got Seattle, but then you got Green Bay on a Thursday night. So obviously that cuts down on the recovery time a little bit better news they could get Coleman back. They could get most safeties back. Kyle said that we'll see later in the week. And maybe the best news that was given out yesterday is K. Juan Williams is expected to practice this week and potentially playing Obviously, that is huge for a Tyler Lockett matchup. So there you go. In all of them, and they move their wide receivers around. It's not so easy to say, You know, you're the ex. You're dizzy whenever they call the slot in the 40 Niners called F Brian Schottenheimer may call it something different. We're all gonna line up, but it's going to be linear, and that's the way it's gonna play. They don't do that. They bunch formation, They stack formation. You see what Arizona did Sunday night when they had the Triple stack. I thought I was ordering a breakfast pancakes. They had three receivers all lined up, and that's when he blew a gasket when the first two, I think they're both tight ends Mr Blocks and I actually saw I watched so much over the weekend. I can't remember what game it was where I saw Quad Stack. Where they had four receivers. All in a stack of stack is when you put one guy in the line of scrimmage, one guy right behind him. The trip will be a third guy behind the first to know it was like what's going on here, and they went back in the archives, and they had a quad stack. It was like, What's that? I'm not sure you know what the benefit of that You can't get to the guy, obviously, and you got three blockers out in front. If you wanna a bubble screen of whatever you run the screen of that side, so So they don't move people around, so it won't be. But I can Okay. Watch a good player. The other thing with Debo. So I also think Jordan Reed. Is pretty close to coming back. I'm not sure it's going to be this game there hasn't been in the update is on I r. So they may not say anything, but if he's practicing, you know Wednesday Thursday And the media season. He could pop out so I you know, I think you need you need weapons You need you need eligibles. If you don't have the most is not gonna play obviously. And Jeff Wilson Jr is not gonna play. Obviously Taverna is Ah, no question Mark that will be bigger than you got Jet mechanic and Jermichael Hasty. They got all student Walter, the young back there could bring up but If you get Kevin comb and go on, then you have an idea what the running backs could have looked like the running back room. But Debo was offsetting I look. Att Debo. You know if you get shortened, Reed, I think with Kittel and Ah yuk and born. You got enough eligibles there what Deebo does Is that constant jets sweep action and whether you want to call it I such an article about the inventor of this, whether it's a fly sweep in when I was doing college games. They are high school games. They always put that guy in motion when he called that Fly sweep. And in the N F. L think we started calling it a jet. Sweet because they're not running. Fly there running jet. These guys are fast. It's an entirely different game. Tohave one guy, you know, just to have a running start. Going across the formation. I think it's gonna change running of the football in this league forever. The way the shotgun has to have a guy moving in motion where you have stationary defence of players..

"Ah, And if he can call plays with, you know it, you get aware that was Bella checks upside down, by the way, the other no for me. My favorite one is still Andy Reed. Reed's got the You know, he's got the pull down plexiglass over his face. He fought well open exactly exactly. That's a that's a fungus that everywhere Riveter. All of these fine came out before the game last night, so Gruden was aware of it. And then God asked about it after the game because his was kind of often on during the game as well. I've had the virus. Okay, I'm doing my best. I'm very sensitive about it. But I'm calling plays. I just want to communicate in these situations and apologize. And if I get fined, I will have to pay the fine. But, you know, I'm very sensitive about all of that. And and I apologize. I mean, there's a lot to unpack there. You could sort of hit. The tone is like, Look, I'm doing my best over here. But we you can't have it all on all the time. He also says that he had the virus, which I don't think anybody knew. So that's kind of interesting as well. And does he have immunity, depending how sick he was? Did he have the symptoms or was asymptomatic? It's party if he was second down and bad. Then the chances are he would have you know some immunity to it, And you know his behavior could be different. Maybe that's part of what he's what he's what he's enquiring about. But the point is, it's hard to call plays. With it on and I want one thing I'm gonna ask Kyle out is you know? How do you call plays for the mask? I can You hurt exactly exactly. All right, and then one more from last night's game as well. Lot of talk today about Drew Brees. Not being what he wants. Wass. There was a stat I saw from from Lombardy from Michael Lombardy on Twitter, Greg, where I guess phrases thrown 68 passes. 68 pass attempts so far this year on Ly, seven of them have travelled further than 10 yards. And of those seven on ly to have been completed. You could bring up that Michael Thomas wasn't in the game last night, but still he's actually not the big downfield guy. For the saint anyway, so a lot of talk about it, And here's what Breeze had to say about that after the game. My job is execute the offense right? And so I think I've always evaluated myself on being a great decision maker, and so at the end of day on, throw the ball of the open guy. Loose ball down the field. Score points help us win football games, You know, so that's my job. My job is not to have the most ofher yards or throw the ball down the field, the most or anything like that. Now, my job's help us win. Jobs. Put everybody around me in the best position to succeed, and, um It's all in progress. I mean, they didn't win. So that's part of what's driving this, but But you know what the other part that driving? This is fantasy football. I mean, I know you know, people for years have have grabbed him as their quarterback and whatnot. He's put up video game numbers and It's not there anymore. I mean, I mentioned it earlier, even if you look at what their offense did against the box if you didn't watch the game, and you said, Oh, they scored 34 points. Looks like the Saints are on point. No, I think he barely through for 150 yards. They had a short field because Tom Brady was terrible and turn the ball over a couple of times. So ah, their offense does not look anywhere near as dynamic as we're used to seeing it. They did not have an off season. This is a Yeah, but some teams do look dynamic like the Seahawks have come out. The Falcons have come out even though they've lost both their games or firing all over the place. They look amazing. Yeah, I just know how precise he is. He is the most accurate quarterback in the history of the NFL. He's led the league and completion percentage six times in his career. He has the career highest percentage. He set records in 18 and 19. A 74.4 in 74.3%. He's incredibly accurate there. The accuracy is not there yet, And that is to be somewhat understandable. 2011 After the lockout year, he blew me away. By throwing for 5400 yards at the time. It's still the highest a single figure and 46 touchdowns, so they were on point. But he's accuracy is off that thing which are a breeze. Is, I think his lack of size. He's got all the records and the we will have them all. And I don't I don't know if Freddy will be able to catch him. On that. I don't know who's going to get a Maybe Mahomes. But he's only 11 Super Bowl. And I think my opinion is There are critical throws that he's just been unable to make in his career because of his lack of size. Now he's overcome that to be the most precise and accurate quarterback, but it comes down to a play here or there. Where he just has been unable to do it, and I've seen it time and time again, the one thing I would wonder about with him. Is that thumb injury he had last year when Aaron Donald got him early in the year. When he fumbled the ball in the playoff game against Minnesota. I don't think he had the hand strength. On they were slapping at and I think it was Daniel Hunter that got it, But he's got to be strong enough to have that ball in his right hand and not have the left hand on it and not have it be poked away. The ball just kind of slipped out of his hand. And a lot of it is just hand strength and it could be that he's just whatever he did it at thumb. Ah, and it's just there was a big fumble. They were they were driving to win the game. They want up slipping it away. They kicked a field goal than to go to overtime. And they didn't win. That was to me a unforgivable air. Why did he make it and I go back to bomb Garner and when he had his finger broken by Whit Mare Field, and he talked about hand strength all that year, and it's wise velocity was down. I don't know if Drew Brees has the hand strength. He used to have the hand sizes spice a smaller guy, but I think over time they will rip the hell out of it. And he will get precise with his guys but also met Lake and they win the Super Bowl with the size that he has. That's why you'd rather have a 6465 quarterback than a guy. That's that's 5, 11 or whatever he is. Mark Willard infer land. It is pop in London. It is a boost time and that is next on the sports later. You're smart speaker is a radio. You here. Papa and.

"I mean, that's you know something where I think you can see Garoppolo is really starting to pull some puppet strings with the defense and if he can make that more consistent Which I think Shanahan expects of this season continues. It's going to be a good year for him, but we just have to see more than one game. David Lombardy, the athletic with us real quick on defense, David No, Defore didn't practice today. What's the update there? And while we're on the pass rush What's been going on with this flirtation with Ziggy Ansah over the last few weeks. What would be Ford. You have a guy? You know, Some people are saying he didn't really look healthy. It's hard to tell against the Cardinals because they compromise. Your defence in a way, you know that other teams really don't mean them in Baltimore. The two teams that really make you play a little bit different defensively. Just because of the run past combination on the spread out formation. You know, the Cardinals can run so I wasn't sure if you know this was just a matter of before. Not being able to really pin his ears back and do what he does with the speed rush, or if he was a little hobbled. He practiced in full on Wednesday, and then he shows up on Thursday or doesn't show up on Thursday. I'm sure he was in the building, but you know he wasn't anywhere to be seen on the practice field. Shanahan and speak today, so we don't know. But you see Ford was listed on the injury report with a neck injury. So, um, that that never sounds good, but that's all that we know. Right now. We'll know more on Friday. And you know the 40 100. They're they're a little shallow defensive end. I mean, even with the Ford That's the one spot on defense where there's just not a lot right now. Because wrong. Blair, who's your natural defensive end really depth piece is out for the first six weeks of the season. He's on pop right now. So that's why They've been interested in big Janda this whole time on DH. That was before you know it is business even happened with the Ford next, so the need will become more pressing it. The Ford is pushed out of service, David. Great stuff, as always appreciate you. All right. Thank you. Yeah, you got it. State of Lombardy. The athletic with all of the latest on the 40. Niners.

"It is registered more deaths from the corona virus outbreaks in anywhere else in the world however there is some hope as officials that recorded a shop full in new coronavirus cases just over four thousand new patients were diagnosed in the latest daily tally that's the lowest number in two weeks that's right the remains stubbornly high another eight hundred and twelve people with the virus have died bringing the overall total to more than eleven and a half thousand people in Italy Silvia security Borelli is Italy correspondent for politico Europe and joins us now so the official line it is very much that this is the country heading in the right direction that those three weeks or so of lockdown I'm a paying off is that the general consensus good morning well absolutely that is what the government is saying and that is also why overnight they extended the log down through mid April and clearly people are still very much concerned because as you said the number of deaths is still very very high especially the northern regions of Lombardy is still very much the epicenter of the outbreak and is still suffering devastating numbers and hospitals are very much under pressure throughout the rest of the country people have some states that thanks to the lockdown measures at the outbreak isn't going to be as severe but of course because of the death toll isn't decreasing just yet these measures were extended and there is hope that if they are extended for perhaps another two weeks or more likely another month the situation will eventually improves I wonder what happens if another see everyone hopes it doesn't but if I'm on the part of the country say in the south become major that senses of the epidemic I'm happy with the health care resources essentially being pushed out to Lombardy and it will be very devastating effect straight on a similar scale elsewhere that's correct especially because other regions especially in the south don't have as many resources and that because of spending cuts many local hospitals have been shut down there are very few critical care medicine units in hospitals throughout the southern regions and these regions as we know are largely under developed there is a lot of organized crime and public funds are often distracted because of this so clearly if the main aim from the national government is to avoid an outbreak of the scale we've seen in Lombardy down south which his wife walked down measures have been extended and fines for people who don't abide by these rules have been increased we were seeing people traveling from the north to the south either to join their families or to spend the lockdown in their vacation home but precisely because of the region's cannot bear the pressure of an outbreak like the one we're seeing up north all of this has had to end and they found ways to cut a little limit on it of course this is a scenario that we hope we won't see and the numbers for the moment are saying that it's not going in that direction a brief if you could have people got their heads around the idea that these looks at measures are going to be around for a while absolutely absolutely some people are and thinking that schools will reopen before September and restaurant owners and business owners are thinking back the summer holiday season it's not even going to start and people that go to work or just thinking that they will have to work remotely at least until June okay Soviet security Borelli Italy correspondent for politico

"To expand our supply. A lot of other equipment is badly needed right now in hospitals and clinics all over the country. You think it's time Dr Burks to start actually mandating production of these critical supplies time to start converting factories to the to the production to meet these kinds of demands. We're so fortunate with the legislation that just came out that we just on locked ninety percent more than mass than we had just two days ago. So I think we're looking and see how much of the need is met by that. And then of course honeywell has also volunteered. I've also seen reports of Construction. Workers taking their current stock to their local clinics. We put out a call to the manufacturers and to the construction workers to do that and people are responding. Others have donated mass. And so we're really looking at. What is the need now as we do all of these innovations on lock further potential Italy Saw more than six hundred deaths in the last twenty four hours alone they actually have more hospital beds per person than we do here in the United States. Are you seeing enough is enough being done right to increase hospital capacity ca? Certainly that is the potentially. Well certainly we're responding with all the resources of the federal government and I think you know the Army Corps of Engineers have been out talking to the individuals and the governor of New York. You know we're moving the Dod mercy and comfort to be available. We're looking of course at mash units we're looking at Vail ability of Va is. We're also looking at the availability of ambulatory surgical centers. Because now that we ask people to give up elective surgeries that opens up a large number of beds that are already fitted with ventilators. That can be utilized. I I have every confidence in the American people to come up with even more innovations to be able to serve individuals but in Italy. It's really important to look very specifically at the geography. They may have lots of hospital beds but the outbreak is very much concentrated in Lombardy region. That makes it then. It's only relevant. How many beds they have in that region. And that's why we're tracking this epidemic on a county by county city by city manner. Because we really have to know where the search capacity will be needed. Not only where it is. Data coming in from. Italy is really amazing because it shows and correct me. If I'm wrong Dr Burks that the viruses actually twice is deadly for men as it is for women are the cases here in the United States following that trend. Yeah we talked about that too smarting and the briefing and I'm really glad the information is getting out from those press briefings and I really WanNa thank all the ministers of health who had been providing US data from around the world and so we've been watching mortality very carefully we wanNA really understand how to prevent mortality in the United States. We've been tracking and we've talked about. How important prior medical conditions and in Italy again? Most of the individuals who succumb to this disease had three medical can other prior existing medical conditions. So we've been tracking very hard and putting out. Those warnings warnings about age. People really understood but this new data about the male female ratio is really quite striking. And you're absolutely right from age fifty on it. Almost twice as many men are dying as women and so that really makes us really have to look into that and understand that and really just having the knowledge of that helps us in the United States. So we can be very specific and talking to the American people about who to protect and how to protect the really striking indeed. You've also Dr Ray. Some serious concerns about younger people. You're in the United States becoming seriously. Ill a CDC report just out. On five hundred hospitalized patients actually find that nearly forty percent were between the ages of twenty and fifty four. So what are you actually learning about these younger patients? And what's your message to them. Well thank you wolf but you know the day that we say up to age fifty five is younger is addition of twenty twenty twenty. Bet It's if you look at twenty two forty four it's only twenty percent and if you look in that age group unlike twelve percent were in the ICU. And of course the numbers then get so small. And that's why we've been working very hard with Italy and Europe and South Korea to really understand what they saw so that we can send out really important guidance to our physicians and nurses were on the front line and I really WanNa thank the hospitals in Seattle who have also been providing US information about what they're seeing how they're confronting it. That said we know young people can get sick reassuring pieces at least so far only one individual under nineteen has come to this illness and that was in China but those numbers can change particularly of a young person has a preexisting medical condition. And that's why we're saying to everyone we know. A lot of the cases will be mild. But you can't predict who is going to get the severe illness because you don't know when you walk across the street if that person has a preexisting condition and that's why we've really been appealing to the American people to really attack one another and follow the guidelines. The president put out yesterday President Trump said a drug called caloric wine could be made available and he said quote almost immediately. That's what he said to treat corona virus but today doctor Fauci said there's only anecdotal evidence that this could potentially have any effected preventing or treating the virus. How close are you to approving any drug at all? That could treat this virus because we know vaccine is according to the doctor Fauci at least a year a year and a half away. You know. That's a really great question. And you know Dr Foul she and I both were on the front lines of the HIV AIDS response. And I think you know from nineteen eighty one to one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. When we didn't have effective drugs. We tried a lot of things and some of them did help some and so I think it's very reasonable to try particularly an off the shelf drug which chloroquine hydroxy caloric are and if they're available and they were making them available to physicians in the United States. I think it's important to study them. But when you have an epidemic like this within virus that's new you do WanNa try whatever you have. As long as they can't harm the patients and so being very clear about the side effects making sure that the patients fit the profile and giving the physicians the ability to make those decisions for those patients with those patients and really having dialogue so making these drugs available makes it available to physicians to have that dialogue with their patients and provide that as an option. And I think you know they're also Rendez. Severe Studies ongoing. There's also monoclonal. Antibodies plasma for reese's Hyper Immune Globulin. All of these things. We're working on simultaneously. They will all go into trials but if we can make some drugs available early just to make sure that there's an option for people to try them. I think it's really critical really effectively. Treat these corona virus patients that would be enormously important even if we have to wait much longer for an actual vaccine. I know the administration has been working on a way to report the total number of tests being done in public and private labs around the country. Where does that stand? Can you give us an estimate of the total number of tests? That have been already done nationwide. Well you know I'm data triangulate. Or so all I can tell you is I know that. In general positivity rate is between nine and eleven percent and we have I think your latest numbers fifteen sixteen thousand. I'm not I haven't seen the latest numbers go up because I should just so. If if ninety percent or negative you can do the calculation of how many tasks we have done. But you're going to spend the press conference tomorrow talking about our approach to testing and really I just WanNa make it clear you know the pandemic flu preparedness. I really relied on us. Being our first big plan DEMOC being flu or a flu pandemic so we did have testing available for flu. But when you have a completely new virus you have to come up with a brand new test. I think we started on the flu. Platform quickly realized it had to go into a commercial platform and that's why the president called in the manufacturers

I'd like to end the segment with some potentially good news from Italy Adrenal Aguzzi. A professor of neuro pathology and Switzerland just north of the troubled Italian region of Lombardy tweeted a chart this weekend that showed that even with the surge in deaths in Italy over the last few days the death rate is deviating ever so slightly from exponential growth. It's early days. But the lockdown might be beginning to work linked to the chart. I'm referencing in the show. Notes and Chen He wa. The European Bureau chief for China Daily tweeted this quote. Just read that Chinese medical team sent to Italy to fight Kovic nineteen comprises mostly experienced doctors from Sichuan Sichuan folks still remember how an Italian rescue team during the devastating. Two Thousand Eight Wenchuan earthquake saved many lives. The world needs more of US helping each other and quote. There has been a lot of justified. I think hand-wringing about the scenes of people going to bars and restaurants even to Disney world. This weekend seemingly unworried about anything that is going on. This is obviously a problem for one. Big reason potential transmission from people who might not know they already have the disease indeed. There is increasing evidence that it is young people people without symptoms that might be the key driver of the spread of Corona Virus. Even more so than we realized quoting. Cnn New Studies in several countries and a large corona virus outbreak in Massachusetts Bring into question reassuring assertions by US officials about the way the novel virus spreads it appears that a Massachusetts Corona virus cluster. With at least eighty two cases was started by people who are not yet showing symptoms and more than a half dozen studies have shown that people without symptoms are causing substantial amounts of infection several experts interviewed by CNN. Said while it's unclear. Exactly what percentage of the transmission in the outbreak is fueled by people who are obviously sick versus those who have no symptoms or very mild symptoms? It is becoming clear that transmission by people who are as symptomatic or mildly symptomatic is responsible for more transmission than previously thought and quote. Indeed scientists seem to be coming to the conclusion that this is what makes corona virus so insidious it can spread far before it even sickens both mergers and SARS tend to be only spread by symptomatic people. But if you get cova did you might have spread it to fifty other people before you even know it. Add to that what we've previously discussed about how scientists suspect that you're more contagious earlier. On in the disease in a study of twenty four passengers who had just flown from Israel seven tested positive for corona virus of which four had no symptoms and the viral load of specimens from a symptomatic patients was higher than from the three patients. Who had symptoms thus the global move toward social distancing? Stay home stay out of large crowds status small crowds. There's a link to chart in the show notes that shows the difference between two towns in Italy. The two are Bergamo and loyalty. Loyalty actually had the first cove in nineteen case reported before Bergamo reported. Its first but Loki. Shut down their town February. Twenty Third Burgum. Oh waited until almost a week later by March thirteenth lucky only had around a thousand cases of corona virus and those case numbers seem to be leveling out while Burgum oh has seen case numbers shoot up to two thousand five hundred and young people. I'm talking to you. Data from South Korea where they test everyone they can is suggesting that. Thirty percent of the carriers in that country where aged twenty to twenty nine. If that's not enough to convince you let me point you to an actual animation. It is literally just balls. Dancing around and environment randomly representing infections over time. Look at what happens to the infection curve when only a quarter of a population continues to circulate and three quarters of a population practice social distancing. The infection rate is significantly slowed and with extensive distancing with seven eighths of a population staying home. The infection curve is stopped almost in its tracks. These are powerful animations but they are only animations only simulations made to educate on a concept. The concept is however. This is joke. If you can stay home let me quote. The last paragraph from the story accompanying the simulation quote in one crucial respect. These simulations are nothing like reality. Unlike simulations cove nineteen can kill though. The fatality rate is not precisely known. It is clear that the elderly members of our community are most at risk from dying from covered. One thousand nine hundred quote if you want this to be more realistic. A scientist was quoted after seeing a preview of the story some of the DOTS should disappear and quote link to the simulation is of course in the show. Notes questions are being raised as to whether or not more of US should be wearing face masks. Even if we're not showing signs of corona virus infection authorities in China already mandate the wearing of masks in all public places whether or not people are sick or healthy quoting from ink stone since late January Chinese authorities and major cities have enforced rules on wearing face masks in public spaces including detaining. Those who tried to use public transport without a mask and quote in South Korea and Japan is also required. That mask be worn by healthy people in crowded places but in much of the rest of the world including here in the US. It's advised that only people displaying symptoms should wear masks as just mentioned the possibility that corona virus can be spread by a symptomatic. People is causing some to argue for more widespread use of masks quoting again from ink stone. A symptomatic transmission has been reported in multiple countries in which a spreader is responsible for sickening others without knowing it in January at cluster. Thirteen infections was believed to have started with a British man who contracted the virus during a trip to Singapore and spread it to others on a skiing trip in the French Alps and back home in the United Kingdom all the while showing no signs of infection himself quote researchers writing in the Lancet suggested that in light of this current national advice may need updating to deal specifically with Ron Virus quoting from the peace. If everyone puts on a mask in public spaces it would help to remove stigmatization that has hitherto discouraged masking of symptomatic patients in many places. Furthermore transmission from asymmetric infected individuals has been documented for Kobe. Nineteen and viral load is particularly high at early disease. Stage masking as a public health intervention would probably intercept the transmission link and prevent these apparently healthy infectious sources and quote. All of that said as of right now. The advice remains to only wear a mask if you are displaying symptoms helping to conserve the mask as a resource masks are in short supply and are needed for medical practitioners.

Shut DOWN AS CORONA VIRUS SPREADS. Amazon's warehouse workers. Say they're already seeing increased workloads while fewer of their colleagues are showing up to work. According Labor organizers already Amazon's white collar workers have been asked to work from home. But that's obviously not an option for warehouse fulfillment workers and delivery drivers quote. It seems really likely that. Amazon's prime delivery system will falter Daniel flaming president of Economic Roundtable and an author of the two thousand nineteen report on Amazon's economic impact on southern California told motherboard. One day deliveries may not be made within one day if the workers who do show up to warehouses are more stress given bigger routes and are possibly less experienced incorrect deliveries will be made.

What You Need to Know About the Coronavirus
"News covered nineteen what you need to know about coronavirus I'm Lucas Univar now we're going to look at the ways authorities around the world are responding to this pandemic the trump administration's handling of the crisis has been heavily criticized the president has given confusing advice contradicting his own experts and misleading the public about timelines for testing and vaccinations morning edition's Rachel Martin spoke to three of NPR's international correspondents about how other countries are handling the coronavirus Sylvia Julie is in Rome Anthony kun is in Seoul and and Lee Fang is in Beijing Emily I'm gonna start with you because you were covering the crisis in Wuhan from the beginning can you just give us a sense now about what was the trajectory of the Chinese response to this well for the first month after that initial cases of the current affairs sure there wasn't a response there is local cover up in a delay and during that time of about five million people left the virus epicenter in like the spread it to the rest of China but then the country mobilized it did so very quickly imposed very stringent self isolation and quarantine measures and by self isolation I mean people sort of waiting densely populated areas they canceled all public events they shut down factories and offices and by quarantine measures and that the they still sealed off cities and villages completely Anthony how does what and we just say said compared to what's been happening in in South Korea while South Korea got hit right after China and because of south Korea's experience with previous epidemics they decided that rapid mass testing for the virus was going to be the key to their strategy and so they've been testing around fifteen thousand people a day S. three thousand six hundred people per million of population compared to five people per million in the US results also focus on transparency putting out daily statistics and press briefings Sylvia in Italy I mean now Italy is has replaced South Korea as the number two in the world after China when it comes to the the scope of of this pandemic what has been the Italian response drastic curbs on freedom of movement and there's been overwhelming compliance only food shops pharmacies and you stands are open people can go out but if stopped by police they must show kind of affidavit that states the purpose either work grocery shopping health or emergency police are carrying out random checks they face either three months in jail or a fine of two hundred thirty dollars the purposes social distancing keep people apart Italy's following China's lead the Wuhan model so Emily the Wuhan model hasn't worked I mean transmission has decreased there has not yeah and experts pretty much unanimously agreed that's because of social distancing it will destroy your economy as it temporarily has in China but it quickly slows the virus's spread another thing China did was it built these makeshift centers where they sent six people and sending instead of sending them home and researchers in both the US and China have now said this week that that was critical to slowing down the outbreak but this could be a measure that western democracies may be unwilling to take as for quarantine measures though sealing off the ledges and cities that's the jury's still out on the efficacy of of that because quarantines meet harder for medical medical resources to reach heart the hardest hit areas and that's probably why fatality rates in the epicenter in China are nearly four times higher than the rest of the country so Sylvia how have the measures worked in Italy what's the situation right now is there any slowing well nationwide it's too early to say it hasn't hit the peak yet the quarantine that was put in place a few weeks ago in the contagion epicenter in Lombardy eleven pounds fifty thousand people local authorities say it's working the contagion rate has dropped and that's why the quarantine was extended to all of Italy to try to prevent a spread to the south which has much weaker health systems than those of the north which were among the best in Europe but they are severely strained by this crisis now I'm Anthony South Korea chose not to take measures like we've seen in Italy or in China with these dramatic quarantines are lockdowns and yet it seems like the have still been able to to keep the crisis at bay right yeah well okay so numbers have been declining for two weeks in a row and sexualities of been at less than one percent compared to about four percent for China and six percent for Italy and you know doing this without having to log huge regions down is also a kind of effectiveness kind of accuracy was or something specifically about South Korea that made it possible for them to avoid large scale large scale quarantines well it's you know testing capacity is not just about cats it's about investment in basic healthcare infrastructure lab technicians chemicals machines logistics and if any one of those areas has a bottleneck it's going to mess things up and people are going to lose lives and it's just you know at the end of the day it's investment in in a healthcare system hospital beds you know national health insurance and this shows up in survivability for all diseases including covert nineteen and lastly Emily and Sylvia I'd love for you to talk some about how the different political systems in China and Italy have affected the coronavirus responsibly you alluded to this earlier but really how much of China's success in mitigating the spread has to do with the fact that this is this is a country frankly with a long history of human rights abuses it is an authoritarian state we've seen transparency is critical for a fast response that wasn't present in China but because China is a very centralized government one might say authoritarian it was able to mobilize quarantine measures and self social distancing very very quickly the problem is quarantines may have cost more lives than we know but we'll never know the secondary costs of people who are not able to get timely medical care and suffered from it because they were sealed into their villages or cities right and still be obviously Italy is a democracy what is been just the people's response to these kinds of drastic measures the crisis has totally turned the world upside down Italians notorious for cutting into line not very beaten to rules are become the most compliant people I've ever seen in my life and French correspondents based here sent a petition to French president Emmanuel MacColl telling him France underestimates the gravity of the epidemic and failed to prepare French public opinion they say look at Italy it's our duty to tell you there's no time to lose NPR's Sylvia patrolling Anthony kun and Emily Feng talking with rich mark fears about the impact of coronavirus have sparked a financial crisis in the markets Austin Goolsby who chaired president Barack Obama's council of economic advisers says that as the virus spreads American markets might be hit even harder than China's and here's our Shapiro asked him why if you look at the economy of the United States or of the rich countries in Europe they're much more dominated by these face to face services that are exactly the things they get pulled down whether their leisure and entertainment and sports or going to the gym or all sorts of services so if everyone stops doing that that's a bigger hit on the U. S. economy even that it was in China we went when they shut down he also said that virus economics are different from regular economics explain what you mean by that yeah by that I mean the closest thing in our in our collective memories to this moment was a financial crisis right into my house I natural crisis economics and business cycle economics is a little different than the virus in that the main thing that is paralyzing the economy is this year and withdrawal and so in a way the best thing you can do for the economy has nothing to do with the economy with virus economics and that is things like paid leave for people that are sick is actually not stimulus it's paying people not to come to work but anything that slows the rate of spread of the virus is the best kind of stimulus so if we have to get on top of this as a public health matter I think before you can effectively deal with this as an economic except if we do so the rate of the virus in this epidemic continues for weeks or months is there anyway to turn around the financial slide yes and no no in that look if there's going to be a substantial slowdown our goal is and should be allowing us the opportunity to bounce back it as this thing passes over us and that means you can't let everybody go bankrupt or starve or have these persistent lasting problems from what we hope to be a temporary shock and so do you see the crunch that we're experiencing now as an irrational panic or an appropriate response to the cancellation of big economic engines like pro sports like Broadway lever like school like the economic activity that goes on in major cities every day yeah a bit of both as we in fear the withdrawal and have social distancing to try to slow the virus there is going to be a substantial slowdown of economic activity right but I can never get out of my head from the two thousand eight crisis Paul Volcker's words over and over at that time that during a crisis the only asset you have is your credibility and as the U. S. government has not made credible statements that contributes to fear that makes it go down and we've we've got to do better we need the president to
