"Phrase not New York, not Philadelphia crowd to be New Jersey. But we lived in between the two And we have many people who have friends, relatives there, and we have many people who live in New Jersey. But work in New York City, so this could mean you. They have started doing a thing in New York City. This is all under the direction of Mayor Bill de Blasio. He is doing. Joe. I would need that back, please. Thank you. Hey, Uh, sorry, folks, Uh, Bill Deblasio. The mayor is doing a quarantine checkpoints where even if you have a New Jersey license plate, even if you're not plated with a car that's from Florida or one of those hot spots. You're going to be randomly pulled over and basically lectured and what's really shocking is one media outlets Staten Island. Live dot com is is presenting this that they might give you a form to fill out a travel survey. And if you refuse, you could be fined $2000 that Is in saying that goes on to say, by the way. Um That if you then or caught violating the two week quarantine, if you did come from a hot spot, and you did not do it that you could get a $10,000 fine in New York's right which were not that owner is here. But my God, that is that is really, really steep. That's nuts. And, you know, um I was looking at I was looking at the New Jersey Ah, survey and, you know, like they really want to know everything, man. I mean, you're given them your first. Your last name. Your given them your contact information. They're asking you. Where you're coming from there asking you what your destination is in New Jersey. Now, now again, I'm talking about New Jersey's. You know this side of the river? We're not the ones doing these traffic stops. I'm just, you know, kind of comparing it. Um But I understand why people would get like very, very put off because it's really intrusive. They want to know exactly where you're going to be going, what you're going to be doing. You know another thing that they started doing with his New York quarantine check there. Also stopping people in Penn Station. As it turns out, our JI places like this. And they're trying to entice people. They're asking you all the same questions. They're asking you about possibly filling out a form, I guess. But they're even trying to incentivize it. They're even offering Like if you don't have a place to quarantine that somehow the city will get you a hotel room. What? Yeah. How nice is the hotel room? Maybe we should just go over and pretend like kings in Florida. You know? Really? What? Ritz Carlton? Oh, yeah. Could just Boca Raton. That's where I came from. I mean, seriously, this is nuts. What they're doing, though this is absolutely terrible. I can't believe this is a real thing. But it.
Public Health Officials Are Increasingly Facing Threats
"Threats for me and my family and harassing my daughters to the point where I have to get security is just I mean, it's amazing I wouldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams. That people who object to things that are pure public health principles are so set against it and don't like what you and I say it, namely in the word of science. That they actually threaten you. That's Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading expert on infectious diseases, speaking to CNN's Sanjay Gupta, about threats he and his family have received because of his work. And Dr Fauci is not alone. Public health officials across the US are also receiving threats from people who are against the policies they put forth to combat the corona virus. Things like recommendations to wear masks and practice social distancing. Michelle Mellow is a professor of law and a professor of medicine at Stanford, and she's been researching this exact topic. Michelle, Welcome to the show. Happy to be here. Shall you wrote an article about the attacks on public health officials during covert 19. What was it that prompted you to even look into this? Well, it happens that one of my bosses that Stanford is married to our Santa Clara County local health officer here in the Bay Area, So I do have a personal connection to somebody who's experienced these kind of attacks. Tell us a little bit about what kinds of attacks were talking about. All across the country. We've really seen a number of things that made your audience seem pretty shocking and are unusual even in the American context we have seen, you know the usual Internet trawling, but the attacks have taken on a highly personal and almost violent dimension. Across the country. We've seen health officer subject to dock, saying the exposure of their personal information like their addresses or loved ones, names on the Internet. Angry and sometimes armed protestors showing up at their private residences, vandalism of their offices and homes, lots of harassing telephone calls and even death threats to the point of having to have private security details assigned to their families. Michelle, one of the things that prompted me. I'd saw the research here and then saw that Dr Anthony Fauci has needed to get his own extra private security because I believed his family had been threatened. Are we primarily talking about high profile figures like that, Or are we talking about? Anyone who's sort of on the front lines dealing with Corona virus cases. In particular, we're talking about people who ordinarily are about his low profile. As you can get local public health is thean visible angel that keeps us all healthy. But most of us until this pandemic you never heard of or seen our local health officer. They have been in the news lately on television and newspaper a lot, so they're no longer such private figures. But these are not high profile figures. They're not national figures. In most cases, they're not. They don't have a political agenda. There are doctors trying to do their jobs. Who are making these threats. Well, it comes from a variety of quarters. Ah, leader in Catalyst in this movement has been the anti vaccination movement here in the U. S. That has all of a sudden pivoted from their usual agenda of attacking public figures who advocate vaccination to going after health officers who are advocating masking and the extension of state home or business closure orders, But it's not on ly these groups. They've been joined by thousands of people across the country who are just really disgruntled and incredibly stressed. By the long term economic impact and social isolation that has stemmed from public health orders during the pandemic. Medical professionals are take a Hippocratic oath to serve whoever it is that needs their help. So like this, this feels like doctors and nurses didn't necessarily sign up to be. In such a political battle, You know, it's interesting the politicization of first responders because those on the front lines were actually caring for covert patients have been politicized as heroes in this pandemic. But the same groups of individuals, doctors and nurses who are working in the public health sector have been demonised as villains. They're all working toward the same goals, and we need to understand that, although they execute their objectives in different ways, they're all working towards a single and so are we. So it's really striking to me that there's been this polarization and how folks have viewed First responders and public health doctor's Michelle. Stick with us. We'll be back in a moment. This is the take away. On the next. All of it, looking for a job thinking about switching to a new one will discuss how to navigate the remote workforce in our series, the future of work, and we meet the director of the new documentary Boy State, which goes inside the weeklong mock government exercise that gathers more than 1000 high schoolers to create their own state government. I'm Alison Stewart. Join me for all of it weekdays at noon. We're back and you're listening to the takeaway. I'm tansy. No Vega. Michelle Mellow is on the line with me. She's a professor of law and a professor of medicine at Stanford, and we're talking about recent threats against public health officials all around the country. Michelle. Have we heard anything from the Trump Administration or other politicians at any level of government about this? Because recently in New Jersey, there was a federal judge whose family was attacked. Now there are talks of increasing protections for federal judges. And I'm wondering if this is now transferring over to medical professionals and health professionals. Well, yet we have to distinguish between medical professionals who are on the frontline response like the ones who are working in hospitals and the ones I'm talking about. Are those were working in public health departments. I'm not aware of specific problems involving the folks who are working in hospitals other than nobody wants to stand next to them at the grocery store. But the public health officials really have had to have protection stepped up. Unfortunately, most of our elected officials to the extent that they're speaking to this issue at all have been joining in the attacks. You know, there are folks who are making their name for themselves politically. By joining in the chorus of attacks against public health officials. In some cases, their own public health officers, you know, saying things like their anti Democratic their tyrannical when in reality, those same health officers are the only people in that state who can issue these orders. They're executing. Planning done by other elected officials, who then sort of hide behind this rhetoric, So it really is, in my view, despicable that instead of offering support to these hardworking, underpaid under attack health officers State and local officials. And in some cases, congressmen and the president have joined in the attacks, and the president himself has been the foam enter and chief here Retweeting such statements as everyone is lying. The CDC media Democrats are doctors, everyone we're told to trust That kind of statement fans the flames. Michelle did your research show whether or not there was a difference in health officers who are in red states versus blue states or our folks that work in these positions across the board, subject to this type of harassment. You know, we really have seen it in all kinds of communities. Certainly there is a red and blue divide in willingness to accept public health measures like masking and to the extent that you're leading a community that's more red than blue. You might have a larger segment of the population going after you. But some of the people who have been under attack are in heavily blue communities were actually most of the population really supports what they're doing. Polling is very much in their favor. But there is a vocal extreme of vocal minority that is dominating attention. Is there anything that public health officials Khun do to protect themselves? You know, to protect themselves. Many of them do need security details, and they need elected officials to stand up and indicate that when these actions crossed the line into illegal forms of harassment, they'll be subject to prosecution in terms of self defense strategies. You know, I think it may be late in the game for this, but there are some things that I think We know help to cultivate public trust and buy in to coerce of public health legal measures. Polling shows us that when people feel that they have a say in public health policy agendas when quote unquote people like me can influence agendas in public health policy, they're more likely to accept laws, even the ones that they don't love. So I think there are opportunities for some health officers to double down on the transparency and candor in their public communications. We do have examples of where this has been done Extraordinary. Well. I think it helps to humanize health officers to telegraph that they're really struggling with these decisions. They don't take them lightly, and also that they have the support of consultation of a number of other people. Well, they're not acting alone and imposing these orders. Do you know of any health officers who have decided to leave? Ah, the job as a result of this because it doesn't feel like you know, the virus is not going away. Assume as many of us would have liked, and people are going to have to make policies and an implement policies until we've got some clarity on where what the next phase of this is so have folks that you know, decided to leave their jobs as a result. Absolutely. I think the count is up near 30. Now, health officers who have either resigned or been forced out by their elected officials since the start of the disease pandemic because of the politicization of their orders. And that includes Oxiris Barbeau, who was the New York City health commissioner. It includes Nicole Quick, the health commissioner of Orange County are most affected County in California. In terms of covert cases it includes West Virginia health officer for the state had the slam so lots of folks who are dealing very, very difficult situation simply, it's just not reasonable to expect them to go on month after month. In this kind of climate, especially when they're not getting any support from other officials mentioned Oxygen's Barbeau and I know that was a big issue here in New York, particularly because she clashed with Mayor Bill de Blasio. Are we seeing a lot of that? A CZ? Well, just internally among Officers and public health officials, and also just, you know, the other officials that they're dealing with. It feels like I don't know if that was very specific to New York City politics or if that's also happening across the board. I think that is happening in a lot of communities. Yes, where you have a schism between elected branches of government that represent communities that have a particular ideological bent and help officers who have been serving you know for many, many administrations many many years and you are You're acting on the science a TTE this point of the pandemic. People are fed up with the science. They want a balance of between health concerns and economic and other concerns. And again. Some health officers have been very good at explaining how public health orders balanced. Those concerns and others who are maybe less transparent, really have been confronted by a lot of attacks from Ah, elsewhere in government. But, you know, responding to local political pressures themselves you mentioned earlier. We we are having to differentiate between threatening health officers and health officials and making and threatening frontline workers like doctors and nurses. But Our doctors and nurses subject to any type of politicization and threats right now, because of the role that they what they could possibly represent, or have they gotten off Have they sort of not been in the cross hairs? If you will. You know, I'm not aware of those kinds of attacks. I think it's more just that What we hear from them is the difficulty that they have in their personal lives Because people know they work with sick people. They don't want to be around him. They don't want to be around their kids. So it's the usual story in any pandemic, where You're the child of somebody who's working with an affected patient. Nobody wants their kid in school with you. I think that causes some difficulties for them, but it's a different quality and caliber of attack than what we've been talking about with public health officers. Michelle Mellow is a professor of law at Stanford Law School and a professor of medicine at Stanford University. School of Medicine. Michelle. Thanks so much, Thank you.

environments this is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm ari Shapiro hosting the from my home studio and I'm Mary Louise Kelly hosting from NPR headquarters in Washington another week another round of staggering unemployment numbers six point six million more Americans filed for unemployment last week that is nearly seventeen million total who filed in three weeks and is unemployment spikes Republicans and Democrats in Congress cannot agree on how to help the Americans they represent today Senate Democrats rejected a GOP proposal to send additional money to small businesses Democrats say they agree more money should be available to taxpayers but lots of questions remain about where the first three hundred fifty billion dollars to allocated are headed this well joining me now is senator John Thune a Republican from South Dakota who is among the highest ranking Republicans in the Senate we've caught him on the line from South Dakota senator welcome back to All Things Considered thank you Mary Louise who is nice to be with you glad to have you with us so we had house speaker Nancy Pelosi on the show last night laying out what she wants what Democrats want which is you know is to include an additional two hundred and fifty billion dollars for hospitals states and local governments and I just want to play you what she had to say much you respond this is her speaking about the Senate legislation as it currently stands the bill that they put forth will not get unanimous support in the house it just won't listen to soon if this is dead in the water in the house and if Americans are desperate why not agree to a five hundred billion dollar package well I mean I just think that they are amid the ongoing crisis in which we got gold you know businesses and workers are clearly struggling I think that disappointed that the Democrat leadership blocked what is critical funding to provide additional relief to those who need the most to the point that they're making about other headlining at other dollars to other programs we've already authorized dollars other programs none of which have been distributed yet the first hospital dollars you're actually going out today so we don't know what we're going to be we don't know what's working what's not working what we do know is that the the paycheck protection program which is the program designed to assist small businesses and help them keep their workers employed by getting them hundred percent guaranteed forgivable loans if they use them to keep their employees employed is running out of money and so this is a bipartisan program it's one they actually support and I think we need to we need to get past any kind of partisan delay tactics as in American people really don't want to see that is there a risk so if Republicans seem to be the ones advocating for less money at a time when many Americans feel financially desperate well I think that that and I don't think it's a question of less money I think we know already I guess so we've got you know we have checks going out of their bills presence talking about another round of those checks we've plucked up the unemployment insurance accounts at all the states it is less money to I mean the Democrats want to spend an additional two hundred fifty billion dollar sang date date they do but they wanted bill Potts that they want to put it in our areas where we've already allocated huge amounts of money hundred fifty billion to state local governments a hundred billion over a hundred billion to hospitals and that money has been distributed yet and so they're saying we want to add additional to this without even knowing what the media's and all are or were simply saying as you know it's what these dollars get out there and then let's figure out that's what the need is and we're I mean our our members are more than happy we're gonna do whatever we need to respond to this to get folks through it where this goes next this is Jim out of money at stake upwards of well upwards of two trillion already passed the president has removed the inspector general tasked with overseeing how it is spent Congress can't convene to hold oversight hearings where is the accountability well I mean there will be a person that steps in the inspector general obviously there's an accent that position is not going to be vacant it is a concern is that that inspector general was dismissed well I mean I think we have there members of the house and Senate might not always agree with the present personnel decisions but at the end of the day these are all people that serve at his pleasure and we want to make sure that that position filled it's filled with somebody who is a professional and not not political insults obviously we're paying a lot of attention to that in some of our members of our expressed concerns about that move in a letter and will will we will do the oversight center Grassley is for later on they're asking for an explanation about Cision and it Romney says Tarun Susan Collins it's you know it's a number of Republicans correct that's right yes so we'll we'll we'll do the oversight that's our role at her job

How much do you think these individual decisions matter. Whether you know say for instance you just choose to stop eating meat. That's all you do i mean is that a big enough individual decision to feel like you are contributing to the solution. I think if enough people limit their meat consumption. We're on our way to do something right. That's precisely what the i._p._c._c. report mentioned is that it's not about this hysterically taking drastic steps to change our diet so drastic steps to change our life to make a small incremental steps at a large scale.

Now is christian create director of amazon. Watch a nonprofit that works to protect the amazon and a critic of the bolsonaro government christian. Welcome having me. We spoke to a brazilian scientists last week who employed consumers here to know their supply chains in his words but that's not actually very easy to do. Is there anything consumers can do to responsibly by burger meat or other food products. That could be coming from the amazon. Well increasingly. We're seeing the u._s. Is considering importing more from brazil which would be an absolute catastrophe. Donald trump in jibe also not talking about a free trade agreement meant. I could open the floodgates to the kind of destruction of activity. We're seeing today in terms of <hes> beef production because beef is driving the vast majority of illegal deforestation nation indeed driving the fires. We're seeing today because many of these fires were set by brazilian cattle ranchers to expand their operations one of the companies. We identified in our report jay bs. Yes is very active in the u._s. As well in two thousand seventeen they had almost thirty billion dollars in revenue in this country alone and they own companies are have the majority ownership in companies like pilgrim's pride which is a well known brand that people buy and maybe not be aware or not aware that they're buying into a highly corrupt and destructive company anthony j b s has been involved in sprawling corruption scandals in brazil and is already in snared in a number of of dirty business operations here here in the states meanwhile we american consumers are consuming goods that go right back into the pockets of these bad actors in brazil it does seem though that it is still pretty difficult perfect for consumer on a day-to-day basis to be able to make smart decisions about their lives that would you know aligned with their values one thing we saw in the recent i._p._c. Report is that we can limit our consumption of meat because if we do that we are going to get twenty percent closer to the solution that we need to keep our planet from only rising one point five degrees celsius in other words to avoiding the worst of the climate crisis so part heart of the solution here is changing our our habits in some degree and yes it is difficult to know where products come from if possible we can limit the purchase of products that are linked to companies as such as as i just mentioned we also need to call on our political leaders to stand end up to the ball sonata regime today and not do business under these conditions so it's not just a consumer question. It's also a political question increasingly. Do you think that the global attention that's been captured by the amazon fires is crystallizing. This idea in more consumers minds is that there is a connection between the two absolutely. I think that the fires today are really an alarm bell. This has been going on for many years. This is not at the beginning of wholesale amazon destruction unfortunately but the crisis we're witnessing. Today is a wakeup call to the world and while i am distressed the see what is happening on the ground particularly to <hes> indigenous communities who are have been working hard to preserve their forests and are now experiencing over three three thousand five hundred fires indigenous territories in the amazon alone <hes> to traditional peoples to smallholders who are all suffering..
