"Number of children hospitalized with covid nineteen in california. Apparently i know you guys are going to be shocked to hear. This was grossly inflated. This is according to a new two new studies hospital. Pediatrics was one of them. A journal of medicine for pediatric care I mean you're not talking like small inflation numbers you're talking at least four at least forty percent they also likely say that Findings are going to be the same. The united states that the The children who were hospitalized. Way less than you would expect which is kind of like for any of us who were paying attention Not i know. I saw you on social media. You were right in with all of this for any of us who are paying attention. We're like yeah noda which. I changed that by the way. I was nine and i changed it. So you're welcome at it. The viewers really should appreciate how much we've cleaned this shape. It's true they don't appreciate it commanded on Yeah but yeah they so. They said that the taken together. These studies underscore the importance of clearly distinguishing between children hospitalized with sars cov to found on universal testing versus those hospitalized. Four cove in nineteen disease The reported hospitalization rates greatly. Overestimate the true burden of covid. Nineteen disease in children. And there's no reason to think these findings would be exclusive to california sort of retrospective chart. Review will likely reveal the same findings across the country. And that even even the numbers that they did report were so low that was grossly inflated. I'm shocked i. I cannot believe that they would have ever inflated. Any of these numbers is not a lot of told you so moments in the last couple of weeks we told you it's is it difficult sometimes because sometimes i'm like what really pisses me off because you have people who you got the people on social media who come at you right and where do you get these numbers where you get these. It's it's you can find it do your research. We don't know the initial tests covid test their little rating thing was all set up to thirty five and a half sits the titties until it was giving ninety. Seven percent false positives Does not report this kind of thing that they're not talking about. We'll talk about it because we're calling it out and you don't know what to trust anymore you don't know what numbers people like will real thing killed. Grandma and i look. I get that. It's a real thing but we don't know what to believe about it because everybody's lying about the numbers and the stats. Yeah like a good A good place to be is whatever. Dr fauci says. I probably don't believe don't believe that. He's changing his mind by tomorrow. Yeah well whatever he says. I'm going to do the opposite. I think and you know the thing that's really ready. Go to me sound social media which is which is so difficult to take is when you china look at things you try you try to take a step back and have a rational look at it and taking all the different elements you know you look at all sides. I'd say but if you quote something that is from a conservative website. A conservative web does not invalidate does not mean. It's not real like would you please look at the statistics and then we can go from there. I mean i remember that one of the. I don't remember this. Man falls off ladder. Remember that mom kenza flooded. He's gonna mini light practice back. Call me crazy you know. Maybe we should take a step back and think that they might be doing something and and again. There's this is a strange approach to doctors. They're infallible yukon. Say a word against them because they've never made a mistake. I ever made a mistake. Only government doctors. That's what gets me. Because if i say something that a doctor on the ground who's actually seeing the patient says if they have not been state-sponsored everyone's like he doesn't count or the epidemic going to know. I said i a repeated something that one of my sons doctors who has been in practice for. I mean they decades. It's a family of doctors. And she was telling me about some of the things that she had seen adverse effects from the covid vaccine. And i shared it. And i can't tell you how many people were like you're making that up that's bs. That's not true that didn't happen. And i'm like yes. It did number one but number two. Why is it so hard to believe that there would be a doctor who would say that there are adverse events that happened from a vaccine like this is common knowledge. If you look anywhere they take two seconds to oppose suggests that you've had over forty three hundred deaths right you've had one hundred ninety four thousand adverse reactions. You've had seventeen thousand serious injuries and people know those numbers and they want to come back. Say well there's not been that many death it's like there has been. Here's the problem. Just like guy falls off ladder. What they're doing is if they give you a shot and you drop dead help. The vaccine killed them but if you three days later i wonder what happened. What are what happened. It wasn't a vaccine. He got that three days ago. Right you see what i'm saying. And so they don't count that there's probably more like twice that number that truly existed have had not only an adverse reaction but critical reaction Or death reaction. Yeah this and nobody nobody to talk about that not to mention. I don't know how much you guys know about the vaccine adverse event reporting system. There's that they're using to find all of these adverse events but a lot of people will say well you anyone can go in there and log in adverse event. It's it's not like it. it's not just doctors. Anyone can do it and it's still. There have been studies that have come out and shown that still only about one percent they estimate of people who have adverse event events. Actually go in and documented. So still we are to believe those numbers that you just said according to the studies that they've done on this database. Those are actually under reported under reported numbers because not everyone is going to know that it exists. Not every doctor is going to go in and log all of these adverse events that they're seeing and that's that's just what they say from the studies. Okay because what i like to do is follow the science matt. Yeah will this is one of the problems that we have these. We have one set of rules for one thing that confirmation bias right. It's like oh we we have to look at this because my experiences on no someone someone someone who died of covid and yet when you when one of us might turn around and say well hang on a second and by the way. This is just to be mindful so that we are. We are fully informed before making a choice choice which which we keep advocating for. Give us the choice. It's not saying we you know we say no. No one should take it all..

"Human beings being charged with it will now we. Humans are clearly still focused on things like sanitizing surfaces. Do you think the outcome of this pandemic would have been different or even better had the. Who and the cdc come out and made these changes to their guidance earlier. I think it's fair to say that if we had focused more on ventilation and moving outdoors whenever possible or opening windows earlier and redirected some resources from disinfecting. That would obviously be better. And i do want to say something aerosol. Scientists have been saying to me for a long time is that plexiglass barriers may even make things worse but impeding ventilation and sort of creating debt spots where these little floating particles can accumulate and we spent so much money putting them up in schools and other places and there's an article in science just this week. That shows that masks for teachers is associated for example with much better outcomes but plexiglass barriers as a with actually higher risk of covid nineteen disease. So there's a lot of things that we might be doing. That might even be counterproductive that we need to look at in this new light because getting the mode of transmission wrong not only does impede us from doing the right thing which is moving outdoors earlier. I mean we might have made things worse by shaming people for being at the beach closing parks while spending so much money and effort disinfecting.

I'm your host bill nye and this is the series that brings you the latest analysis and the science of this pandemic so that you'll be informed prepared and come. We're all in this together. My friends with the continuing rollout of vaccines around the world. It sure seems like we're nearing the end of the worst of it. At least when it comes to the severe cases but just last week is that. He came out looking at the plight of kobe. Lung haulers people experiencing something called brain fog. Could this be the beginning of a whole new phase of copa nineteen drawn out error of persistent symptoms. Adhered help us understand. This phenomenon is dr eager corral mc he's neurologist at northwestern university and head of northwestern's clinic for kobe related neurological symptoms. Dr gore corral. Nick welcome to science rules drawn virus edition. May i call you e gor. Yes bill you may an thank you very much for inviting me. I'm delighted to be distancing socially with you and to all your listener what are the symptoms of long-haul what what goes on with you if you're a long haul corona virus person. This is excellent question and the long kohler is a term that has been chosen by patients themselves and Those patients mostly had a mild covid nineteen disease at onset with the you know transients respiratory symptoms including some cough sore throat ogi. The fever may be muscle that when away and thereafter despite the fact that they did not never give develop pneumonia or were never hospitalized. They developed those lingering persistent and beating symptoms that mean volve the nervous system cardiac and the respiratory system as well as gastrointestinal so we open in maine twenty twenty during the lockdown one of the first neuro covid clinic in the country. So where's that western northwestern memorial hustling chicago. So many people can come from the entire. Us intel visit. They have access to a smartphone or to a computer and so far we've seen more than four hundred patients including people from illinois imprison and people for more than thirty states who come intelligence. It's and so the vision that we see in our clinic come because they have no Problems and we just ruled a paper about the first hundred patients who came to the clinic Between may and november twenty twenty and these are self selected people looking for them. They come to you right. Yes so it's like any Study in the hospital setting gets an setting. Those people had to come and they came because they had those nordic symptoms and so the most frequent nor jason dome where brain fog which is also termed chosen by the haul. Alert describe debt problems with memory attention multitasking abilities. You know basically ability to function in their usual job headache. Numbness and tingling disorder of taste disorder. Smell muscle pain dizziness. Pain vision and ringing the years. Which is also tended. This is where the ten most frequent. George symptoms that the patient coming to the clinic had edition of most of them had intensity and they also had some respiratory problems cardiac problem. Gi problem like Fishes studying yes yes. This is awful. This is the first few you mention do satellite. They're connected to the brain. The brain fog right. What does brain fog mean. So it's a term that is that has been chosen by patients to describe the difficulty with memory attention multitasking abilities in able to work in their in their very demanding jobs and they are teachers they are physicians. The nurses are business. People people who are multitasking. All the time would know oversee you know dozens if not hundreds of other people working with them or for them and they say well you know i. I am struggling. I know even keep my own schedule it alone taking care of all those other people around me and so we. I them Questions about their own impression of their cognition in fatigue and there's a baseline that the we have for ee ablation in the us so that you know if the patient that you as the question to correspond to the average us population or is better or worse for example so we have a date that and so we know that based on the quality of life in the domains of commissions fatigue those patients have a worse quality of life than demographic match us population. We also did some Cut tests for attention for processing speed for the function and for memory. These are standardized tests that you could take it is called. Nih toolbox because it's been developed with the national institute of health and he's an ipad tablet these tests where people need to perform the those debts twenty to thirty minutes in spite of their clinic visits. And we've seen that. Some patients performed below average compared to their age gender and level of education and that really affects the ability to work in their usually. Like so i've known people in my mom had got chemotherapy and they report. They call it Brain fog they report that they just don't function what during after certain treatments they just don't function in the same way is that is it long term is. I mean what's going to happen with you brain fog today that's would question and patients who come to the clinic in had chemotherapy before tells me is just the same as brain fog that had after chemotherapy. Rigo yeah some patients who had a concussion or traumatic brain injury and also get brain fog. They tell me that's the same as the brain fog that had after my concussion or eat it re awakened the brain fog that or re put to sleep. Re dozed off in that they are patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Right and Those patient also have some site that of fog..

"Intel. Did with the people. Like jack kilby who ran texas instrument when they were fighting over the patent for a microchip and bob noyce basically says less quit fighting over giving up the proceeds until we finish robbing the stage coach and they shook hands and cross license. Well that hasn't happened yet. This mammoth patent battle is still going on. If there's one thing the jennifer dowden is known for its for her call for reticence in using crisper cast nine until a great deal of thought is given to his bio ethical use. What's so dangerous about it. What might happen well. She had a dream right after she made her discovery about having create this gene editing tool from crisper and it was. Somebody wanted to understand the tool and she walks in the room. And it's hitler and that just as she gets taken aback and she says we gotta keep this from falling in the wrong hands and the problem is not using it the way we have been using it to cure badge inadequate diseases for example. It's already been used to cure woman down in mississippi of sickle cell. It's been used on cancer at the university of pennsylvania and in china to been at the university of washington for congenital blindness in a patient. But then i chinese doctor in light twenty eighteen used it at it early stage embryos and when you do early stage embryos and reproductive cells that means the edit is in just in that patient but it in all their children and all their descendants. You've basically edited the human rights now. What of the chinese doctor do he had an edit that got rid of the receptor that got rid of the gene that allows receptor for hiv. The virus that causes aids. 'cause he wanted this show these children and for that matter all of their descendants never to get aid now people were shocked. It was premature. It wasn't necessarily safe but it was also crossing that philosophical line of making an arable ed in the species. Now you ask. What's wrong with that. When we got hit by the coronavirus pandemic. I think a lot of people were shocked that we would edit the human species so that we would be less susceptible to a virus for minute and they ask your question. Mar will remind me again. What's wrong with that. Shouldn't we be using it to edit the human species so were less susceptible to viruses. So that's the question. My book explores but i don't give an answer at the end. I have everybody march hand in hand with george church and jennifer dowden. Eric lander. Who's going to be the president science advisor and all these people wrestling with this issue including chinese scientists. I interviewed and they're all saying we're all we going to draw the lines. and why. And if yasser george churchill. Say i'd go all the way i'd give my kids more. Iq points. i would make him taller and more muscular and he says what's wrong with making better children. But i would say you know. I'm naturally want the rich to buy better genes their children. I'm not sure we want to edit out the diversity of our society. So where i come down is yeah. We should use it to fight deadly diseases but not to enhance The human race now. There are a lot of blurry lines there at some point. We may want to cross those lines and say why not enhance the human race. But i want the reader to think this suit because all of us me and you and our listeners. Or all gonna in the next decade or so have to have an informed opinion by this and it's a slippery slope so we should do it cautiously step by step and preferably hand in hand. You mentioned eric lander. And the i often say to people Whether you're male or female you may be just learning. Science may be learning engineering. Whatever you're doing but whatever you wanna do you better develop a tough skin in the scientific community. This can come in many ways. And i'm thinking of eric lander here a very well known famous tremendous scientists. He wrote an essay in the journal. Cell in about the twenty-fifty in two thousand sixteen. So we're talking. You know three or four years after all of the papers and patents have come to light and that essay was the heroes of crisper and it was quite controversial and fact it perhaps was extremely difficult for Jennifer down what heroes of crisper dead was present. A very well reported very nuanced history of how crisper gene editing tool was discovered and then reengineer starting with the spanish. Graduate student francesco. Mojica wonderful guy and alcyone chianti spain who notices these sequences and bacteria in the nineteen ninety s all the way to the president. And if you read it it has some spend too it. It tends to elevate the importance of following jiang. The institute which eric was then the director of and tended to minimize the contributions of jennifer dowden and there were a couple problems with that one is. He was in the middle of this patent battle where his institute was fighting for the patent and that was not mentioned by the journal Secondly it sort of echoed would happen to rosalind franklin and many other women in science which is when men writes the history of science they minimize the role of the women. That's sad. Eric is an incredibly smart person. He's very driven that competitiveness that caused him to maybe Put a little bit of span in that story is also the competitiveness that allowed him to build the broad institute into the most important institute in this country for translating genetic basic research into madison's etkind help patient and it will be a great asset when he becomes the chief science advisor to the president. But you know it did cause a bit of a awful in the world of science. Because it was eric showing his slightly competitive side. Perhaps even winning -ly. I mean i think i like eric lander a lot. And i think that aggressive competitiveness is a good thing. I also think that jennifer down a- is a very competitive person and sometimes people say that as if that's a flaw i'm going. Yeah you're right. She should thank you. She is and that's a great thing about our so. I like competitive people out. I like jennifer like eric and the fact that they got into a kerfluffle and over this piece Well it makes for a good chapter in my book. Let's get back to where we started and Sars covy to the virus which creates the covid nineteen disease in humans. It's a single stranded. Aren a virus. Ooh that aren a word again and we now have three vaccines approved in the us. Maduna pfizer and johnson and johnson. And they're all genetically engineered is just about everything you do. These days is but the crisper cast nine tool is what we're talking about. Did it play a part in the development of any of these vaccines crisper specifically was not directly a part of these three vaccines and the crisper part of it has helped create these corona virus and cova testing. Get that a much better than the clunky. Pcr tests at cycle through different temperatures. And.

Is there a link between the AstraZeneca vaccine and blood clots?

Is there a link between the AstraZeneca vaccine and blood clots?

"Suspected linked to the development of a rare syndrome involving the formation of blood. Clots in the brain's blood vessels led to eighteen european countries temporarily halting their use of astrazeneca's covid nineteen vaccine pending an investigation. By the way the european medicines agency the itself though while it investigates is urging nations to continue to use the vaccine which has been so far administered to over seventeen million people going to the very real threat posed by massive surges and covid nineteen cases across europe that said some countries like belgium in the uk elected. Not interrupt their vaccine. Roll outs the aura. Which regulates medicines in the uk has also carried out its own investigation reached a very reassuring conclusion. Our view shows that there is no difference. That blood clots in veins are occurring more than would be expected in the absence of vaccination for either vaccine we have also received five reports of different a rare form of blood clot in the cerebral sinuses cerebral sinus vein thrombosis all csv t occurring together with lowered blood platelets shortly after vaccination with the covert nineteen vaccine astrazeneca. This type of blood clot can rarely occur naturally in unvaccinated people as well as in people with covid nineteen disease. A further review of these events is ongoing but a causal relationship with the vaccine has not yet been established. I'm hr hfc's june rain there. She was addressing the number ten downing street press conference earlier this week so there is still some uncertainty around this but in the end what it all comes down to is balancing risk the risk from a very rare and possibly completely unconnected medical condition versus the relatively much bigger risk of succumbing to covid nineteen infection. If you catch it and it's attendance queely so help us comprehend what is going on what we really need. Here is a professor on the public understanding of risk. Which is exactly what cambridge. University's david spiegelhalter specializes in things quite complicated. Because the story is it was ran. Last week was by blood. Clots like deep-vein thrombosis and other things and i looked to that data. What was being reported by astra zeneca. Aaron tim visits the number of Adverse reactions they didn't like anything special tool but it since come out that the actual actual real concern is from norway and germany in particular is is a particular special full of thromboses known as herbal venus sinus thrombosis associated with low platelets so this is clearly a razz syndrome and germany particular. They've at one point six million vaccines and had six seven cases of something like this and tends to be in younger women and in some so i can understand that. There is a concern about Yesterday vaccine but policymakers have to make decisions all the time. Don't they about What you're going to do and what the cost might be and what you're not going to do. And what the cost might be and it is really important not to jump the baby out with the biological bathwater because by deferring vaccination while you investigate a very remote risk of something happening you end up costing people the chance to be vaccinated in the interim one commentator in france pointed out that for every hundred thousand people. You don't vaccinate over the age of fifty four one day that will translate into five deaths. I haven't checked that statistic but it does sound plausible.

"nineteen disease" Discussed on The South Florida Morning Show

"Thank you. Karen see news giner bot half hour. He self-loading morning show news. Talk eight fifty w. f. t. l. and by the way the cdc is out with what you can do with your life. Jen once you get the the facts. I me tell you. I'm not gonna listen to him because it's so confusing. I don't even know what to do. It is a long list of things. But it's it's it's contradictory to listen to what she says. Okay play the first one then. Plays the second part. it's like. Aw we're gonna take this in pieces or remember this is after you get the vaccination. She saying cdc recommends that's fully accelerated. People can visit with other fully vaccinated people in small gatherings indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing. All right and you were allowed to make fun of those. That didn't get the vacs so this is at this point she's saying vaccinated people getting together with vaccinated people. Okay now. here's here's where it gets complicated. What she says next. Cdc recommends that fully vaccinated people can visit with unvaccinated people from one of our household. Okay so that means if you want to go see your neighbor. That's fine but if the neighbor has another neighbor over stop at the front door. 'cause you're going to get sick you get one one. That's it you get one representative from another family that's unvaccinated and then that's it. It's it's crazy and then indoors. Without wearing masks or physical distancing as long as the unvaccinated people and any unvaccinated members of their household are knocks at high risk for severe covid nineteen disease. So what they're saying is if it's still like somebody with a high risk of very very very old person or somebody has a co morbidity or something on even if you're vaccinated you still shouldn't get together that's the bottom line so that would be like me saying let me if my dad were still alive and i are vaccinated. And he wasn't. Maybe i shouldn't get next to him. Because even though i'm vaccinated i can i infect him while why is it okay to go stand next to somebody else. That isn't in my family. See it makes no sense. It doesn't keep in mind. They're probably going to be five adjustments to this by thursday. They just confuse things. It's like fao ci where amass don't wear a mask where to mask. Don't want to miss three or better than two. But if you wear to make sure it's only the disposable ones underneath and not to cloth because then you negate the issue where he is he on the mask issue by the keep tuning them out. I can't listen to him anymore. I can't do it art. I don't know he sees back just one but the good news came yesterday from the governor. And so i'm happy to announce today that starting one week from today next monday. We will be lowering the age and the state of florida to sixty.

A blank check to get Vaccines rolled out but If you look at how pharmacy of the big pharma has worked in the past.

Goodwill will flow. but i think that You know the government's gonna have the rain that back in when it obviously comes to issues economies of scale logic companies. Obviously have that in their favor. Is that how the system should work. You have logic. Companies at the top of the chain with their economies of scale and then smaller almost boutique companies if you will that specialized knowledge of of regulatory environments and commercialization is that way.

And we've all lived that right through the pandemic just just thinking about all of the the people that are in hospitality and and have have to change their business model law thinking about how quickly tally health came in. Everybody's had to be at jaw to me. That's the take home message. Is that you know the days of planning a long term strategy sticking to it a been sort of challenged not only by the pace. Which technology is advancing but also by the situation that we're in in the pandemic an i think all players in the system can learn from that what i think can be. Enhanced is the level of government and industry collaboration. So that's that's been excellent in terms of vaccine development but there are real learnings from that that it would be nice to translate into other areas in in pharmaceuticals medicines. There is pressure on the government to build infrastructure and manufactured in australia. And so i think what may happen. Is you'll see shifts to at least in a smallest go having some of the products produced in australia and that will lead to job creation than a late two other other pressures on the government to support it as an industry so i i think that that you'll have these two competing constraints one the budget which will try right back in. But i think that the manufacturing producing something that has a supply chain security is down to push it in the other direction as well. It would be nice. If some of the lessons learned from that could be translated to other areas of marinade and health because a lot of course you know the pandemic devastating it continues to roll on. But it's not the only health need in town right there menu anymore so it would be really interesting to to apply these learnings to other therapeutic areas women come to a point like goodwill is it possible in business to quantify goodwill is. That's something that pharmaceutical companies would be looking at the moment in many ways saying did they. Reputation is better than it has been in decades up telling you look this. There's been decades of research. I'm not necessarily in the pharmaceutical industry. In by what's good brand equity which is what's the value of our company beyond. What's on alan. So for example kirk just with the manufacturing plants and the products that they have sitting on the show for his the nine coca-cola with a lot more than the physical product in physical plants So i think that yes. The pharmaceutical companies should be looking at the issues of brand equity. But that's not going to translate. At least within the current system into any i think economic power because the way that these pharmaceuticals are handled through the system. Is that basically. You have these committees Pharmaceutical companies have to put up a case for why these The drugs should be Subsidized to the public Part of that. he's an economic case. But i don't think that Brand equity has been a part of that discussion in the pasta. And i'm not sure it would actually fly with the way. The car structure is set up. Easily is leading the european union into what many describing vaccine protectionism light last week. Obviously block the expert of a quarter of a million doses of the zenica vaccine that australia had contracted for what happens when a nation block supply of an order vaccine. And how would that be rectified. I think what i can say. Is that be the good situation. Australia's and this is thanks to the public health. Response and the ability that we've had to to control covid nineteen disease We are in a much better situation than the rest of europe and if one puts an equitable access hat on than taking away from from the legalities in the politics of shutting borders and an house over nations deal with that europe. Needs the vaccines more than we did. They So so i i think this is where we probably will look back to organizations like the kovacs facility who are aimed at equitable access. And and i guess in. Maybe this is idealistic. But what would be preferable is if the world worked together to make vaccines available according to tonight and it's always tricky to manage that in the context of all these individuals supply agreements that that companies and governments have and do you think the kovacs could evolve into potentially almost global pharmaceutical regulatory authority in the same way that after the first will be at the league of nations to second mobile the united nations. Do you think there's potential particularly with the way that we've saying the various different regulatory rigors of different countries being put to the test various vaccines having to pass a number of different checks and balances throughout the world. Do you think potentially there is an opportunity to have a more streamlined global supply chain for particularly vaccines think there are probably two parts to that on the supply chain. My understanding is that you know kovacs has probably been able to procure vaccine and roller out more successfully than than what happened in two thousand and nine with h one n one pandemic and again. I'm i'm not across the country by country details but but i do understand that the the main challenge getting vaccine out in in the flu pandemic of two thousand nine supply chain and and i think you know perhaps that that contributed to the way the society set up and the fact that they have started to roll out vaccines in low and middle income countries. I think is a success. Success story that could be built upon on the second point on regulatory collaboration. There's a lot of collaboration going on. the therapeutic goods administration which is at regulate to here is part of a group called the access consortium and its regulatory authorities from canada. Uk switzerland and singapore and includes australia and they have agreed to collaborate and share data for covid nineteen vaccine so whilst we lack a globally harmonize regulatory system. We do now have lorrimore. Mechanisms to sharing data. Another example in oncology would be the oldest project which is led by fda tj. also participates. Mrs wear on college medicines if they re reviewed by one regulated can be accelerated with with all this program so there is more and more collaboration going an unannounced. You a question. yes. I think events like this. They trigger that when they show.

"Going to get vaccinated against the covid. Nineteen the biden covid relief. Bill is going to speed up the day when we will all be vaccinated in this country. Here's what the president had to say. When the bill passed the senate on saturday it obviously wasn't easy wasn't always pretty but it was so desperately needed urgently needed when i was elected. I said we're going to get the government out of the business battling on twitter and back in the business of delivering for the american people. Making a difference in the lives giving everyone a chance. A fighting chance of showing the american people that the government can work for them and passing the american rescue plan. We'll do that as always happens. When legislation moves from the house to the senate members who voted for it worry about how much the senate might change and in what ways the senate might weaken the legislation members of the house progressive caucus kept publicly in effect. Lobbying the senate to preserve the most important elements of the bill the progressive elements of the bill and after the senate passed the bill. Are i guess tonight. Congressional progressive caucus chair pramilla giant. Paul said importantly despite the fact that we believe any weakening of the house provisions were bad policies and bad politics. The reality is that the final amendments were relatively minor concessions. The american rescue plan has retained. Its core bold. Progressive elements originally proposed by president. Joe biden and passed in the house. Relief package president biden. Promised to deliver one million vaccinations per day for his first hundred days in. He is now delivering an average of two point. Two million vaccinations per day and on saturday hit a record. High of two point nine million vaccinations in one day and the last two weeks coronavirus cases have fallen twelve percent. The number of coronavirus deaths down ten percent and the number of hospitalizations from corona virus has fallen twenty nine percent and today the cdc has issued new guidance to the thirty one million fully vaccinated americans saying that they can now visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing and visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe covid nineteen disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing sh even if everyone at the white house bill signing of the biden cove relief. Bill is fully vaccinated. We can expect the biden white house to still require wearing masks and safely distancing leading off our discussion tonight democratic congresswoman pernilla giant paul of washington. She is the chair of the congressional progressive caucus and democratic congresswoman madeleine dean of pennsylvania. She is a member of the congressional progressive caucus Let me begin with the chair tonight. i'm presuming in everything. I just said that this bill being sent back to the house will pass the house in the form. The senate has sent it to the house. I believe that to be the case. Obviously every member makes makes the decision at the very last minute sometimes but mike conversations. I think people understand that. This is a bill that does what we said we would do. It puts money in people's pockets. Top priorities for the progressive bacchus though survival checks the unemployment insurance benefits the child tax credit. Those are critically important pieces for us. And in addition it crushes the virus. Which is the other piece that is inextricably linked with how we are going to get out of the crisis that reface so we are excited We had to put a lot of pressure on as you said lawrence to make sure that it didn't get weakened more and had it been weakened more while we would have had a different decision but we are going to see how government delivers for people and how government is truly the great equalizer of opportunity in the moments of the most desperate crisis carson dean a water the main points of this legislation that you want to tell your constituents about is for having me on it's.

Now that we've got vaccine in the country vaccine which we know is quite effective at preventing disease and infection. Would that change the way. We've been responding to outbreaks in the past year. Yes would and in fact. I think we were probably the first out. Let's talk about. It was called ring vaccination. And it's now part as far as i understand it over the national immunization or vaccinations strategy. So what you do is as you do your contact tracing you would ring-fence vaccination around the person who's got the disease and the people that have come in contact with and maybe even the people that they've come in contact with so primary contacts and secondary contacts and you would do that with the pfizer vaccine because you've got a strong response early and is only three weeks between doses so within three weeks you're fully immunized rather than the astro which might take twelve weeks to get up to that sort of level of antibody response and so a and it's a race against time so that you because the incubation periods five to eight days but what some of the research is showing is that you get an early response to particularly the pfizer vaccine. Maybe even the astro too so you get a pretty good resistance there early on so that would be a good way to respond to outbreaks prior to very large percentage of the population being covered. So when you vaccinate sometimes depending on the disease some vaccines take a couple of weeks before you get an immune response. But then there's other vaccines like rabies. Where if you get bitten and you think that there's a chance got exposed to rabies. They give you a vaccine then. Do we know what the fires a shot does. Whether it's the sort of vaccine that you can give after exposure and give you some protection while it is all about the maths which is the incubation period versus the time for the vaccine to work so smallpox that's how they controlled. Smallpox control smallpox by massimo. Certainly helped but in places such as africa they controlled it by ringfencing and controlling the spread from that and so they find they find a case a main they ring vaccinated around the person with smallpox. So that in for anybody who might have contact come in contact with that person was protected and in that case the vaccine for for the smallpox vaccine worked faster than the incubation period of smallpox. In this case it's lying ball but it's worth doing because it's likely that you would get a responsibility and you're doing two things by this ring. Fencing are ring vaccination. I should call it.

"So let's briefly delve into your immune response. You buy can have a couple of different responses at this point. The first response involves the work and coordination between your antibodies and a type of t cell called helper. T. cells or cd. Four t cells. This coordination helps to neutralize the viral component not allowing it to infect anymore cells in your body a braxton eight itsel will present fragments of despite protein on its surface when it does the debris will contain many spike proteins and protein fragments which can then be taken up by type of immune sow called an antigen presenting cell. In this case the antigen is the spike protein and antigens elicit responses from an antibody wouldn't helper t cell detects spike protein fragments. The helper t. cell raises the alarm to more show other immune cells to the area of the vaccinate itsel other immune cells called b. cells may also bump into the corona virus spikes amp protein fragments on the surface of the cells. A few of these b cells may be able to lock on to the spike proteins as they protrude from the cell. If these b cells are activated by helper t cells. They will start to proliferate and release. Antibodies that target this spike protein. The antibodies can latch onto the roma virus spikes mark the virus for destruction and prevent infection by blocking nece bikes from attaching to other cells. The second route your immune system takes is to activate another t cell. Call killer t. cells or cd. Eight t cells sad note. Dissertation was on t. Cells southie cells near and dear to my heart. Okay on with the episode. These t cells come to this site through the same mechanisms be other immune cells. Come to the cell site and this mechanism involves the antigen presenting sowell's which the t. sal encounters on its surveillance. Once it has found antigen presenting cell it kills that corona virus in fact itsel led displays the spike protein fragment on the surface hence the name killer t. cells so basically one part of your immune system is they are took control an infected cell and is controlling it for a number of different reasons. It wants to use it with a port of your immune system with memory and that so win. Your body encounters the corona virus in it has a blueprint of how to fight this particular invader. It understands what the import molecule looks like. It will understand how to biden future so the vaccine is working to elicit that response and the vaccine can also elicit the response of the killer. T. cells and that's a separate port of your immune system. That doesn't seek to neutralize the antigen or the spike protein. But it's literally trying to kill the effect itself so that these viruses if they were present would have no chance of infecting other cells. This part of your immune system is really trying to decrease the numbers of the pathogen in your body. So the first part of this immune process if to gain a foothold to understand what the spike protein of the corona virus looks like how to recognize it later on an act. More quickly your killer. T. cell ish literally trying to annihilate it so it gets out of your body quickly before it can cause more damage now. That concludes the basic science portion. How talk now. I wanna focus on what we know about the application of the vaccine so far. Remember what we said about the immune cells and how they recognize a pattern on the pathogen like spike protein corona virus. This alert the immune cells that a foreign and possibly dangerous invader like a pathogenic is in its midst. The johnson and johnson black seen is a recumbent barrel. Vaccine that uses it live attenuated which is a fancy word for modified and weaken agnew adenovirus as its rector. Since it uses the live edna virus that can cause the common cold your body or more specifically your immune system may have already seen and at a previous point develop an immune response against it. If that is the case then yourselves will not take up. That virus has despite protein in it because antibodies against the adenovirus vector will neutralize it before it can work full. This possibly weakens the effectiveness of the vaccine and this may be why initially be efficacy rates. Were lower at sixty six percent compared to those of the messenger our apec scenes however looking into the preliminary findings. We see that. The vaccine conferred immunity to severe kobe. Disease at a rate above eighty percent. Which makes it a good candidate for those in high risk categories like those above sixty five years of age adding theo pd and other pulmonary diseases. Heart disease and diabetes and johnson. Johnson vaccine is currently being tested to see. A booster shot increases the effectiveness of the vaccine. Another positive note for the johnson and johnson vaccine is that it remains effective against a south african and uk variants of kobe. Not disease and among the lower cost vaccines this development could place it among the premier vaccines in the world against kobe. Both for its effectiveness against the original. Kobe nineteen disease and.

Vaccines are rolling out - so when will cases drop?

"Now the vaccine rollouts have begun globally. How soon do we expect to see a corresponding drop in cases of covid and also in deaths. Well fun issued save at overnight yesterday. Israel at the moment is just newspaper reports but it comes from the israeli ministry of health and large health provider. One called cloudy another one called mcabe healthcare. And what they're doing in. Israel is that there are electrically recording. All the vaccines as we will do in australia but it's integrated into people's medical records. So they really do have very good integrated electronic medical records and in fact one of the reasons. They're getting so much vaccine from pfizer is that they've done a deal with they. Give the data back to pfizer. So they've got what's called post marketing surveillance in. They get dot back on the performance of the vaccine. So what they've shown on and what they're saying it hasn't been published yet. Is that after the first. Does i think it's roughly in about two hundred thousand people aged over sixty five. But in those people compares to members of the health funds who have not yet had the vaccine. They've seen a significant reduction. Perhaps a fifty percent reduction in covid nineteen infection not disease but infection so this people specifically yes because they're rolling it out in priorities so older people in federal people are giving it first before others get it as well and so. This is their first data. It's a bit like. I don't know if you remember meghan. But near the beginning of the pandemic britain used their coordinated electronic records centralized electronic medical records in hospitals to be able to huge randomized control trials on a vast scale during the first wave. They were able to show that hydroxychloroquine didn't work. The anti retrovirals for hiv didn't work but that dixon methods to steroid did work and the turned around incredibly quickly during that first wave and is this huge advantage when you have a population willing to accept electronic medical records and that's what the israelis are doing. So they've got records of people who have not yet had the vaccine versus people have so if you like it's a real world not quite randomized but it's a real world trial and again not published in any scientific journal. Yet the early indications are that pfizer vaccine after the first does is showing reduced transmission to a significant extent which is really great. Yeah because the focus when we're talking about vaccines is so about a moving herd immunity which is obviously something that lots of people very keen for for all sorts of reasons but this is a really fast positive outcome where you literally saving people's lives. Yeah it's early could be wrong. Still got to run the ruler over it scientifically but it is a good early sign and presumably reflects the daughter. they're handing back to pfizer. So israel is getting the fires a shot and we've also had reports over the last few days that a man in the us who got the a shot has died shortly afterwards. And i think some question marks around whether or not it was anything to do with the shot or chance. What do we know about that. All we know about his newspaper reports from the new york times of luton to it. So it's really impossible to be absolutely sure what's going on if the newspaper and it's an issue. If the newspaper report is accurate then this is a doctor who got it. And three days after the vaccine started to develop little red spots on his skin cope tiki and these are assigned that. Your blood isn't clotting very well. He recognized that presented and his platelets had dropped precipitously and they find it very hard to raise his platelet levels. They thought this was an immune reaction which was reducing. His platelets platelets the little fragments. Which are essential for blood clotting and it does occur to drugs and it has occurred with covid nineteen by the way so covid nineteen disease itself can cause a precipitous. Drop to your platelets and serious hemorrhage and they were about to again. According to the newspaper report remove his spleen. Which is where they presume that the platelets were being broken down but he died of a cerebral hemorrhage beforehand. So the question here is causing effect. Is it the vaccine or is it a

"nineteen disease" Discussed on The TWIML AI Podcast

"I guessed that gives him great to be here again. It's great to have you back on the show As folks no with our air everyone shows we reconnect with past guests of the show and talk through some of the trends that are making waves so to speak in particular areas of and we've got a big task here in general machine learning and deep learning covers a lot so we're gonna be leaning heavily on your area of expertise graph machine learning but to get started. I'd love to hear your thoughts on kind of broad brush. Strokes you know. What have you seen out of the field at large this year. Well i think it has been a lot of things going on boston. The field i will say broadly in the world saw obviously the pandemic which has changed the way that we work. The way w conferences. So for the first time we've seen conferences done been so format and surprising. Everything worked big companies Speaking from maybe a few percent of employees that were working remotely now hundred percent of employees working remotely end surviving. These also worked at nicely while talking about visa environments as well so all the students now are working from home. Different places different countries so With maybe if you keep cups in the beginning of these also they sell a at the end worked worked out nicely so this is on the one hand and they could solve the coronavirus and the they related to covid. Nineteen disease has begun. Also a big focus for many people that are maybe even remotely related to medicine as myself so we tried to do our best to try to complete it to the global scientific efforts research efforts photo address. In some way these bennigan's we've seen a lot of interesting works in that direction so that that was another highlight of the year in sense than many other prominent topic so one of them for gumbo discussions about the ethical aspects of machine learning. And i think we needs to realize that the field is probably not stumm a corner and niche mathematical Seeing that doesn't affect the broader community. I think many of the methods and decisions that we make in this field. Mike have broad impact. So it's important to discuss the ethical implications of the work. That does we are doing in the field. They have been many. I would say heated discussions. Sometimes they village conforming Format i will expect from a civilized academic scheduled to be. But i think it's important that these questions are being brought up and eventually addressed. Then maybe specific things so big breaks a national language processing the famous generative speech rangers for remodel of gb free which is a deeper language. Muddle that he's already capable of causing Almost indistinguishable from human written texts. And probably one of the biggest and also most expensive train and a lot of argument is well how people in the community and outside of the community whether this can be considered the first step towards general artificial intelligence and the usually scheduling that you see field between representatives of let's hated it deep learning community versus added that critic such scarring. Marcus arguing that this is not not even close. So it's the doesn't clearly understand anything about that so i believe they. It doesn't have a clue about the language sorts. Each produces results are.

What Science Has Learned About the Coronavirus One Year On

"It's a really important moment to look back at our very different reality just twelve months ago. In december twenty nineteen the first infections were just emerging inside of china sars. Covy two didn't have a name yet and no one could imagine the global effects that the virus would have on us all but it was also clear that this novel coronavirus lit a fire underneath the seat of science so my question is how far has our scientific understanding about the biology and the behavior of the virus. Come since then yeah. We have learned some really critical things. About how the virus works and also importantly about how our immune system responds to it and how. This virus sars cope chew. Essentially causes our immune system to misfire in cases of severe covid nineteen and miss misfiring really centers on the very early immune responses that. Our body mounts. These are called innate immune responses this innate immunity is a part of our body that really uses sensors that detect pieces of pathogens. Like the co two virus that are not from our own body in once. These factors are sensors detect these viral bits. They sound out an immediate alarm system. That operates through molecules called cytokines and interferons. These are important for activating those later. Immune responses like t cells and antibodies. That we hear about and what we think is that. It's likely that people who sound this innate immune alarm early upon exposure to the virus and induced early in high levels of that interferon alarm system. Go onto pretty rapidly and effectively clear the virus so these might be the individuals with a symptomatic or moderate or mild disease however what scientists have learned. Is that people who go on to develop severe covid. Do so. Probably because in them. The virus causes a misfiring of that. Immune response so like the wrong sets of immune cells may be brought in and they might not deuce that early interferon alarm system. Quick clear strongly in they can't control the viral load. The virus amplifies to really high levels in their body so their body responds to this continued presence of the virus basically by increasing production of factors. That are involved in inflammation. This is an over exuberant inflammation or inflammatory response. And that's what leads to the lung tissue damage which is really a hallmark of code pathology. So what we've discovered. Scientists over the past year is that there are biomarkers. That can give clues about who ultimately goes on to get severe disease. Scientists have also discovered genetic. Differences are mutations that some people have in those innate immune genes that can contribute to poor initial control of the virus. I think that this understanding that there are essentially two phases of covid nineteen disease that initial phase that's dominated by viral amplification in a second phase that in severe cases is dominated by a misfiring of the immune response is really important is important because it ill. At they're two types of therapies. That are probably needed. Depending on the phase of the disease so drugs that charge it the virus directly to stop its replication is would be things like remdesivir that we've heard a lot about in the news or maybe treating with things like recombinant interferon. This is Something that's used to treat other chronic viral infections. Those types of therapies are probably only going to be effective at stopping nets first phase of the disease but are not going to be very effective If they're given during that second phase because it's then it's not the virus but the immune system that's driving illness so conversely drugs that damp a net over exuberant inflammatory response and decks. Methadone is one of those. These might be dangerous. If given during that first phase when you really want a rapid and robust immune response but could be helpful at dampening the damage that's caused by the immune system at later stages one of the key parts of understanding the virus itself. How find it is scientifically really about timing right. Exactly timing is really key to figure out how your body responds very early and later and you know the timing and dose of the virus that you might receive understanding how that timing or the kinetics of infection response are essential and we've made a lot of progress on that over the last year

Here we go again? More problems with hotel quarantine

"I'm health reported teigen. Tayla journalists dr norman swan. It's friday the fourth of december and norman. Just as we felt like we were getting on top of the south australian outbreak and everything was coming towards what felt like it could have been an even keel in australia. We've heard that there's been another case of hotel. Quarantine being transmitted to someone who isn't in hotel quarantine this time a domestic worker at a hotel in sydney. How do we deal with these scholley. That just an inevitable part of leaving during a pandemic so how do we deal with them when they happen. So far starts new the caveat that the time of recording this corona cast. We've only got partial information. More information will know marriage but this is going to happen from time to time. Not just in new south wales but elsewhere initially. It sounded disorders persons working across two facilities. It may just actually look located facility. You'll remember in victoria. People are strictly working in one. They are going to genomics just to work out. Where exactly this person got up from. Is it hotel quarantine order. They get it from the community again by the time you just as we the answer to that question nonetheless when you test workers in quota quarantine regularly you will pick up positive cases and you might pick up positive cases that are relatively mildly symptomatic or symtomatic. The otherwise card. So it's a good thing that we are detecting them and hopefully we're getting onto very quickly and they are testing the context of this person so we just need to see what happens here. But it's going to a car and we're bringing people overseas with coronavirus. This is gonna is gonna occur in all jurisdictions and nobody can look done new south wales or victoria or anywhere else. This is now going to be part of covid life moving forward and presumably as long as we are surveilling. That really closely. There's no need to go into full lockdown mired if you're picking up those cases very close to the source that's right and you wills has had outbreaks and quite significant outbreaks managed to bring them back down to zero. So this is going to be the same thing i can't. I can't imagine that this is going to be a problem of the dimensions. Of say. The purview cluster in south australia. But who knows. We'll see that. Knock allowing the premier. Wis necessarily did say that he wouldn't hesitate to close the borders again. Norman you give up on your dream of seeing caucus no. I'm still hoping that Run a me hotel. Quarantine new south wales or not. Well the other big coronavirus news. It's that in the last thirty six hours or so is that the uk is going to roll out the final vaccine really exciting to have real life people getting real vaccine at the end of this really really long pandemic approval so it's not a proper approval obviously just on a dive to make sure there's no major safety issues and the risk versus equation given how many cases get the uk favors just using this vaccine. They reckon the risk is low but they they will not have really looked at the data from the trials in any great detail. This point so it looks as if it's safe will it prevent infection. We don't know that yet it. May it certainly will prevent covid nineteen disease which is great given. You've had so many deaths in the uk and for us. It means that we shouldn't be rushing at all. We're not in an emergency situation. We'd almost no virus in australia apart from hotel quarantine and we can wait and we can let the british to be blunt. The british and the americans make mistakes learn how to distribute it double check that it's safe when they've given it to millions of people over the next few weeks and we will will put us much better shape from when we implement so the approval for the visor vaccine. Maybe some of the others will be over the next six weeks maybe longer. And then it's that we will do it properly. We actually talked about that in a bit more detail in yesterday's episode of corona cost. So if you're interested go back and check that one out. The other thing. Norman that i could say a very popular new story yesterday about someone who'd had sips associated with covid nineteen and he seemed to have a really dramatic recovery because of a massive dose vitamin say. What do we make of this not march. We'd be my first response was fantastic for the patient. It's a one off. There's no randomize ation here. People will argue that. You don't need a randomized trial with a parachute in other words. Prove parachute works. You wouldn't do a randomized trial parachute works. You try it out. So here's somebody that they thought was gonna die. Didn't die from mega doses of vitamin c. They'll think that they know what. The mechanism is presumably. They'll say that it's because it says potent antioxidant and it's doing something for the free radicals that may not be the case. Very high doses of vitamin c are actually pro. Oxidant and i suspect that if this works they haven't got a clue why but it might be a signal that you would actually test this out in people over on a larger scale to see what's going on so

UK Authorizes Emergency Use of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine

"Pfizer and bio. Intech say. They've won permission wednesday for emergency use of their covid nineteen vaccine in britain. The world's first corona virus shot that's backed by rigorous science and a major step toward eventually ending the pandemic. the move makes britain one of the first countries to begin vaccinating. Its population as it tries to curb. Europe's deadliest covid nineteen outbreak. Other countries aren't far behind the us. And the european union also are vetting. The pfizer shot along with a similar vaccine made by competitor. Moderna inc pfizer said it would immediately begin shipping limited supplies to the uk and has been gearing up for even wider distribution if given a similar nod by the us food and drug administration. A decision expected as early as next week but doses everywhere are scarce and initial. Supplies will be rationed until more is manufactured in the first several months of next year visor. Co albert birla called the uk decision. A moment we are focusing on moving with the same level of urgency to safely supply. A high quality vaccine around the world bore said in a statement while the uk has altered enough pfizer vaccine for twenty million people. It's not clear. How many will arrive. By year's end. And adding to the distribution challenges is that it must be stored at ultra cold temperatures two doses. Three weeks apart are required for protection first in line. The uk government says our frontline healthcare workers and nursing home residents followed by older adults british regulators. Also were considering. Another shot made by astrazeneca and oxford university but prime minister. Boris johnson has warned. We must i navigate a hard winter of restrictions to try to curb the virus until there's enough vaccine to go around. Every country has different rules determining when an experimental vaccine is safe and effective enough to use intense political pressure to be the first to roll out a rigorously. Scientifically tested shot colored the race in the us and britain even as researchers pledged to cut no corners and contrast china and russia have offered different vaccinations to their citizens ahead of late. Stage testing the shots made by us based pfizer and its german partner bio intech were tested in tens of thousands of people and while that study isn't complete early results suggest. The vaccine is ninety five percent effective at preventing mild to severe covid nineteen disease the company's told regulators that of the first one hundred seventy infections detected in study volunteers. Only eight were among people who'd received the actual vaccine and the rest had gotten a dummy shot. This is an extraordinarily strong protection. Dr uber sahin. A bio intex. Ceo recently told the associated press. The companies are reported. No serious side effects. Although vaccine recipients may experience temporary pain and flu-like reactions immediately after injections but experts caution that a vaccine cleared for emergency use is still experimental and the final testing must be completed still to be determined is whether the pfizer bio tech shots protect against people spreading the coronavirus without showing symptoms. Another question is how long protection lasts. The vaccine also has been tested in only a small number of children none younger than twelve. And there's no information on its effects in pregnant women.

What's going on with the AstraZeneca vaccine?

What's going on with the AstraZeneca vaccine?

"Everyone is continuing to scrutinize the oxford astrazeneca vaccine which just me awakes ago. Felt like how best chance at a vaccine for card and it's it's come up with results as we talked about last week. That looks really promising. And then on closer inspection. They looked a bit. We'd there was a thing where a small group of people in the vaccine trial received a half toys and they had better results. But then now there's questions about whether they would give him a half dose by accident. How do we make sense of what's happening with this vaccine trial. It's actually really hard. So we we signalled all this. I think last tuesday on corona cash. So it was quite clear then. The they done something unacceptable which was tried to average two very different trials and one going to sixty two percent result effectiveness result of preventing covid nineteen disease. Which if it'd been the first vaccine to report cited pretty good because the registration level is fifty percent effectiveness but came after a visor moderna with well over ninety percent effectiveness. And then how. They got their average of seventy percent. Sh- really sounds like confection. Which is that the got in another smaller trial. A result in people who have does food or following had got ninety percent effectiveness. And all this goes back to pharmaceutical companies making scientific announcements by press release. We could talk about this til kingdom come. There are rumors circulating this confirmation but apparently they're rushing to publish this and that there's a report of the financial times they will publish this in the lancet thursday so thursday of this week british time. We should know a bit more about this trial and remember. This is a vaccine. The promise not to make profit side of that is cheap. And they've committed to giving very large doses. i think something enormous like a third of the world's doses of vaccines are relying on astra any so. This is a lot riding on this vaccine. So six effectiveness is better than nothing but hard to justify spending money on if you other vaccines around that are ninety percent but if there's nothing else around than what do you do so they may have to repeat the trial With a half does fall by food if you remember. There is rationale for that. Which is that. The chimpanzee virus that takes genetic material into the cell in theory generate an immune response in other words you immunize to the chimpanzee virus so the second vaccine does that you get the bodies kind of immune to actually the carrier for the vaccine so it doesn't prove to be effective the russians get round this by giving you two different carrier vaccines first. One is a different carrier. Virus from the second vaccine doors has a different carrier virus. Antibodies to the first one won't affect the second one but the the reason they chose. The chimpanzee virus was in the theory. That the human being wouldn't generate an immune response to a chimpanzee vars. It would be kind of invisible which is maybe wishful thinking about. They have studied this chimpanzee adenoviruses before so really we can talk about it. A lot on corona cast but will know hopefully the end of the week an awful lot more than we know now. But i suspect they're going to have to go back to the drawing boards and try a half those trial just to see whether or not they can get a ninety percent efficacy so we have some questions from the audience about this. But i've got some questions for you. I do these sorts of things. The maybe the deicing mix apple the on shore uncertain results so these happening or clinical trials. But the difference. This time is that the public is watching it. Play out in real time or is there a chance that these frantic competitive pace of trying to get a vaccine out is may be causing companies to have to make errors and so then what does this mean for our ability to trust a vaccine once. It comes on the market all good questions. Teagan the reason you've got this problem is almost certainly rushing and missing out of what's called a phase two trial so normally you've got three phases of trials phase. One which is looking at safety tends to be small and a few hundred people then you would normally go to face to face to trial is a dose. Finding study which is the most effective does of vaccine or drug. That's going to get you your effect. That's in a larger number of people and you. You test the dozing now. What you've missed out here in all. These trials is a proper phase to study so they've rushed headlong into a phase three study with a guesstimate as to what the doors is. Now i think from memory. There was an element of doors finding in the face. Three study in the may. Well it'd in them does finding all the vaccine trials testing the site. Which is why you've got the half does or could be a mistake. We'll find out but it could be that we got the doors wrong. And if you remember rightly right at the beginning of this whole process we said nine out of ten vaccines fail and we haven't had nine ten vaccines fail so far we've had them all surviving this process. It's just that the astro vaccine was disappointing with a to those regiment. Michael's asking about the payoff. Side of things star. He's pointed out that pfizer medina have both sort of said that they vaccines are about ninety five ninety nine hundred percent effective but they've been very selective about releasing details of their methodology and is querying why they haven't been subject to similar criticism as oxford astrazeneca. I hope decisions are not being based on who has the best. Pr so the answer to that is we. Don't know until they publish the results. But certainly pfizer. Moderna were fairly straightforward. And what they said it wasn't transparent at all they just don't trust that to one thousand nine hundred. Ninety five percent effectiveness astro if you like was a bit more transparent although there were a bit silly and averaging the two trials so you could see. There was part of the study which showed sixty two percent. Genetic study showed ninety percent now if that happened with pfizer madera. Different does is. We don't know that all we know is that the does they've published. They got really good results but the regulators will see those findings. It's there's no. There's no benefit to pharmaceutical companies of lying to regulators like the food and drug administration. Because the will be called out. The penalty is a huge in terms of reputational damage and in the financial damage. So go to get this sorted out. And they've got to be honest with the public but this is the problem with a press. Release you just. Don't get a chance to scrutinize the data.

Borders are coming down. Were they based on science or politics?

"It is thursday the twenty sixth of november. And we're approaching the festive december norman. Which at least for me in queensland means that board is reopening to almost the rest of australia entirely which is a first for months now which is really great especially families who wanna get together For christmas and new year but were the borders. What do we know about border closures. In terms of how useful they are in stopping the spread. Is it more about science or is it more about politics. It depends on the date. So if you look at the victorian second wave new south wales the clusters in new south. Wales did originate in victoria before they closed the victorian border the where some people who turned up in queensland who would be in victoria so borders do work when you've got a fair bit of virus circulating there but the question is once you get almost no virus circulating. Do the borders need to stay closed. And if you remember queen opened up for a short period before closing gone again before the second wave occurred westminster. There has never really opened up. Although it's it's saying it slightly less onerous now but it's really effectively closed the moment if a borders closed and it's really now from now on wwl i think really effect most other places are open. South australia will eventually have access to states. Once they get over this pick up with the current outbreak. I think from now on is just politics because the risk is so low question is. Are we going to slap a border on again. If there's a cluster outbreak in new south wales or accuster outbreak in victoria me. The probably will be customer outbreaks because we're bringing people from overseas. The provia customer outbreak can in queensland because bringing people from overseas. I we're going to keep going backwards and forwards well propeller. She says no. She's not going to do that well. She's not gonna do that then. Why would she do it. Not in other words. She could do it in the future. Why has she done it in the past. I think that's no that the queensland election is passed then poltics becomes less of an issue. The west australian election is still to come. And i think quite honestly even though the risk is incredibly low if not nonexistent w borders will probably remain closed. Because there's an election coming you can see why states want to protect the resources of the health department's and protect the people that leaving there but it does seem like quite a blunt instrument to control spread. When you think about the size of the states that we have in australia blunt. It may be but it's probably been fairly effective when you had a lot of virus circulating but now is almost non and we're pretty much well in control. The problem you've gotten w for example is people have gone back to virtually back to normal and the virus comes in then you got a problem because it could spread but their risk is much more and the primary mcgowan has said. This martin mcgowan said this much more from hotel. Quarantine then is from new south wales victoria and they would have to do what south australia's done. Which is reboot contact tracing when the get outbreaks. So they're not ready for it and that's part of the problem as well so like you say we're coming into the end of the year with almost completely open borders across australia. What do you say the first half or the. Let's let's start with the first half of twenty twenty one looking like well. We're still waiting for vaccine rollout. Well i think that what will happen is that will continue to bring back people from overseas. Australians from overseas. I suspect we'll see a bubble open up with new zealand. Maybe the pacific islands as well. So there's no quarantine between us because we've got almost no cases so the new zealand to keep on quarantining us going there. We would almost cases. I suspect they will relax and open it up to us. The need us is poorly more than we need them. But that would be nice. Pacific islands pretty low low risk then got singapore which is a bit more awkward because the it being a transportation hob so i think you start to see. Some international bubbles opening up and. I think that you're going to see the odd outbreak here or there in australia but kept under control and we'll get back to some kind of normal life throughout australia and circulating normally no then the question will be at. What point. would you open up our borders to international travel and that will depend. I suspect on digital vaccine passports in other words except you people from overseas if they'd been immunized and of course that will depend on whether the vaccines prevent infection or just covid nineteen disease because if they don't prevent infection then you could be bringing people in from overseas who are carrying covid nineteen and could spread it here but if they prevent in which is going to take a little wild into the twenty twenty one to discover. You may not see vaccine passports being used in australia until we're sure how effective the vaccines are preventing transmission. But i think that you could see international flights starting sooner than many expected. Well

Is the Oxford vaccine worse than the other ones?

"And we had some more exciting vaccine related news in the last couple of days. Norman the astrazeneca vaccine from oxford university has released results saying that. It's an average of seventeen point four percent effective which is less than what we were hearing about the other. Vaccines that have recently been announcing interim results from fifa and madonna. So is the oxford vaccine. Like the bad one or is it just the way they've crunched the numbers looking a bit different to the way pfizer and medina have crunched. The numbers and sean writes in. So we're getting the dot t. One thanks you'll have to force me to take that one advisor moderna. I'll be first in line stuff. The for'de astrazeneca one who trust the uk. Now anyway. thanks. I'm sean sean. Next time you say the question just tell us what you mean you a. You don't be the by bush. So here's the story of esther vaccine report. So this is the problem releasing by pressure lease and what they did. This press release was really naughty. They gave an average of seventy percent but it was an average over two separate trials. You can't do that. You can average two separate trials with different objectives different doses and so on and say was was seventy percent and you can only assume that what we're trying to hide wars that the food does trial. Which was the latte. The larger of the true was actually quite disappointing. Compared to the one thousand nine hundred ninety five percent results that pfizer moderna have been reporting for the amarnath vaccine where they get the average coming up. A bit is actually. What at first sight seems counterintuitive. So you try which the big what which is to fool does is and you've got a smaller trial where they did a half those to begin with and then a fool doors late about a month later and what the got with that one was ninety percent. Say to the to the other two. That's right but effective remember. This was affective in preventing covid nineteen disease. We still don't know whether prevents infection now said well. Why would a lure does one work well. It's actually quite conceivable that the lord does one is the better way of giving it because the vaccine works spy using a chimpanzee cold virus which has been inactivated sort of doesn't caused disease to carry the genetic message inside the cell for the sale to produce despite protein. That's going to generate an immune response in the body that will have memory to fight the infection. So that's how it does the chimpanzee vars whilst it doesn't develop disease in the person our immune system does recognize this virus and january. antibodies toured. So what can happen. Is that you give. The food does in the first. Does the body a gets. Antibodies to the chimpanzee vars. And then when you give the secon- does it doesn't work because your body's fighting off the victor really. That's right the train of the truck the text but if you want to call it the terms of the metaphor taking the phones of other words that blocks the driver from taking the from carrying the the vaccine into the cell so the f- the lure does wand doesn't generate a strong response to the chimpanzee virus but still pump primes the immune system against the vaccine against the spike protein. I should say so. The second vaccine does work so this is actually good news so could be. That is just as good and it'd be a nice one to be just as good because it's going to be a lot cheaper. It's going to be available in the developing world. Astros said that they're not going to take any prophets on it at least during the pandemic and transports in the fridge. So it's easy to transport and resilient so you can't average here so the sixty percent is completely misleading. Double full does pretty lousy half those plus four does pretty good and that director attention towards where it should go.

We don't need it anymore. No because has doesn't operate on press releases scientific papers that have been pure reviewed where we know what's going on you'd have to say pfizer's a bit out on. Its own here at least so far. Anyway they've announced this Interim analysis but it's not been peer reviewed and it's quite hard to work are exactly what's going on both fighters the one who hasn't actually joined the same platform of some of the other vaccine manufacturers. Who are out in trial. And they've got their data safety monitoring board which looked the analysis of this raw. The common one is what the monitoring board is being shared by. Some of the vaccine manufacturers. So it's not entirely transparent. There's also see you have to say also commercial element in this that they want to get a jump on it and the water here is that they're going to push for emergency use authorization before their presumably earlier than the other vaccines but the question is. Is it too early to know absolutely for sure that they're safe so they sort of questions to ask here are well. What does it mean. They've said nine more than ninety percent. Effective well you gotta read between the lines. Because it's not entirely clear from their release but it's been something like ninety four covid nineteen disease cases so this is not infections. Forty thousand people yep in the boats so this is these vaccines are not designed to pretend to fiction as we said many many times on corner cast they're designed to prevent covid nineteen disease which is fair enough because if you've protect against nineteen disease then all the sars cov to becomes is a bad cold. Let's assume that we talking about which is that has been ninety four cases thereabouts. I think that's what the announced and that they're more than ninety percent effective. It's should probably mean that something like eight or so of the cases of covid nineteen occurred in the placebo group and the remainder are six or seven or whatever it is six occurred in the vaccine group. But we didn't have those numbers. Stay away from visa. We don't have those numbers but you can assume then that from from that crudely of that ninety four percent ninety percent or more occurred in the placebo group and ten percent or fewer occurred in the vaccine group. That's what that means. And therefore is a significant gap between the two groups which is protection against covid nineteen disease. That's what i assume an endless things. No major safety issues. The ninety percent number A lot higher than what we've been talking about on corona causton in all of the full out around this announcement. I heard a lot of experts. Say that's amazing. That's a really big number much higher than we expected. So that's good news right. What's what's much higher than the regulators were willing to approve. Everybody was hoping it'd be much higher than fifty percent because fifty percents pretty disappointing and so this is really great news. If it's all right and you get superior review study of the data and goes on long enough to have a proper analysis and it's really good news for the other mini. Vaccines are just just to be clear. What this vaccine is and just a little bit of a revision on the vaccines the so the oxford vaccine and this vaccine and the moderna vaccine three scenes around the are the lead. They do the same thing in the end. Which is they put a genetic message into the cell to tell the cell to produce part of the spike protein of the corona virus and that goes into the bloodstream and the immune response the immune system reacts to that creating immunity. How the vaccine does it is uses a chimpanzee virus to take the genetic message into the sale and what bio and take the pfizer vaccine does and the moderna vaccine is. Is that parcells up amorini. Which is a parcel of genetic messaging and it goes straight into the salad self and tells the cell to produce the part of the spike protein. So this is a name are a vaccine and it's really good news because there's another mirani vaccine on the blocks which is the moderna vaccine which isn't too far behind the problem with these vaccines is that there are very low. Temperatures to transport around minus eighty of madeira. People say there's may not require that depth of temperature this makes it a very impractical vaccine for poor and middle income countries and also does make it a bit impractical even for countries like australia. Where you're going to have to coaching at minus eighty on the coaching standard frigid temperatures and the university of queensland vaccine for example will only require an a standard vaccine fridge province minus eighty. So they are vulnerable it. They do first mover advantage so that they can get out there because they know they're vulnerable to other vaccines. That might come along. Which don't require that cold chain infrastructure.

Why are scientists obsessed with coronaviruses G strain?

"Salman one of the things that we get a lot of questions about is whether the coronavirus ease mutating and we know that it ease and one of the big reasons why this is concern is. Because with all over the world, scientists are working on vaccines and treatments against the virus. But if it mutates and the parts of the virus mutating other parts at those treatments targeting than, they might not work. So CSI rise put out some new research about the g strain of the virus, which is sort of the dominant strain now and whether the vaccines. That are currently in development still going to work against these dominant strain. That's right and the reason why this particular strain if you want to call it, a strain of virus has survived the full name of it is the D six, one, four gene mutation defy but turns you on Cadillac yeah, it's probably more transmissible and it's a mutation that's tended to. Survive around social distancing. So we've socially distanced the Wuhan version of the virus at the beginning was probably controlled by social distancing, which preferentially allowed mutants of the virus which were war transmissible walk contagious to survive, and this is one of them and it seems to be comedy certainly dominating in Australia. There is another strain on top of this that's dominating Aware. which is also probably more transmissible out. The fact is that this mutation is on the spike protein as you'd expect it to be because despite protein is the docking mechanism if you like for the virus to get into our bodies by the h two receptor sceptre, this lock and key mechanism in the body. Now, if this was in an area, which is also targeted by the vaccine, because the vaccines do target the spy proteins. And the spike protein has changed too much than the vaccines might not be effective against the. Six one, four gene mutation, and that's been the worry and particularly with other mutations on top. So as an accident of evolution, could it be that despite protein becomes resistant to vaccines and what they did in this study was a study of ferrets in the Csiro where the exposed this to a vaccine which has got similar viral backgrounds in terms of covid nineteen. To the other vaccines around and they found that in fact, neutralizing antibodies where generated numbers the sort of antibodies that could kill the virus, which generated two forms of the virus that have the D- six, one, four, g mutation. So that's good news. The also did some modeling on that and they found that from their modeling that supported the fact that the. Vaccine was going to actually cover this new strain as well. It doesn't mean to say they won't be mutations in the future that could mutate around the vaccine but at the moment we seem to be okay. Yeah. One of the things that was kind of comforting for Australian context at Laces they will look you that we're looking at a stray leeann isolate. So USTRALIAN samples of the virus that are actually currently circulating hia and the research was done here and so far it's still seems like so good in terms of the vaccines that are being developed us, right so The exposed the ferrets to viruses within without the the mutation, and the also did it in the modeling. So another thing that's come out research wise in terms of protection is that they've studied Tasmanian healthcare who had the virus a few months ago and they found that they don't have antibodies after about three months. Is this a worry attempts of how long were immune to the virus? If we do catch it that's A. Matter of strong debate amongst immunologists and infectious disease experts around the world. The current thinking is no. It doesn't matter what matters is has the body's immune system memorized the virus and memorizing the virus happens in t cells smell former white blood cell, not the white blood cell that produces antibodies. So you don't need to have antibodies for the body to have memorized the virus. So the real question will be is whether or not. No antibodies protect them against future infection and we'll just have to wait and see on an international basis and it's been unclear from the reinfection you've seen overseas with this relates strongly in one way or another to the existence of antibodies over the long term because in some of these reinvasion cases, they don't have an accurate assessment of their antibodies. So the presence or lack of antibodies isn't a wire in and of itself. But it could hint at the fact that immunity isn't very long lasting. So I think that the lack of antibodies don't know what that means and we won't know what that means until we've looked at reinfection rates and the results of vaccine trials and whether or not. It really matters whether you've got antibodies in your bloodstream or not. It's really whether or not the T. cells of memorize the virus that will be seen in. Whether or not the vaccine lasts and whether or not people who've had covered nineteen disease stay immune to reinfection so far there haven't been that many reinfection internationally give them that we for tens of millions of cases, but we'll see.

Why is coronavirus not killing as many people?

"Phenomen. Some good news in Australia seems to be that the number of deaths from coronavirus is dropping and infect yesterday Victoria had no recorded deaths for the first time in about two months. So is this reduction in deaths here in Australia like sign of things to come or is it maybe just a bleep? What you're seeing here is the end of the second wave in Victoria and it's just fantastic that we're seeing the numbers of people dying going right down. As. You say it might go up and down a little bit but it will be very very low from now on the death right dropping the right of people dying compared to the number of people who have the disease at all I. Think you've got to look overseas for that Rob van in Australia and it's not easy to calculate. As we've said, many times on Corona cast because it depends on the number of people the proportion of the population being tested, and we really only know the accurate infection fatality rates from things like cruise ships you know the Ruby print says the diamond princess and so on. Because the of testing vary so much from country to country but people who've looked at this still think that the death rate is roundabout point four point five percent, and that's roughly what we've been talking about. Maybe point six percent in the past it's likely that it staying roughly the same but in some countries that does Lucas if it's dropping a fair bit even relation to the testing if you look as the number of cases is increasing, but the death threat doesn't seem to be following suit what's happening there well, one of the reasons is almost certainly that older people are changing their behavior. Keeping themselves to themselves. So while there might not there might be parties in Malaga in Spain and people are going out and having a good time. It tends to be younger people doing that and older people are tending to socially distance that seems to be the way it's going in Europe and elsewhere. So there is a change in behavior and people who are the most vulnerable. The other reason it's changing is that they've got much better at treating moderate to severe covid nineteen disease. So the nursing people in their TUMMIES, they're not jumping into ventilation as quickly and they're using decks methods on which. Reduces mortality rates and people who are who've got severe disease by about twenty percent. So things aren't getting better in terms of the treatment and I think all those things together have reduced the mortality rate from covid nineteen at considerable cost. So part of it is a true reduction in death right? If we're getting better at trading them but I mean people conscious look themselves up forever. How long are they going to keep this self correction for? Well, it's crystal ball stuff. We don't know that but there is a little bit of evidence now that that locking themselves up isn't working as well because. As young people get these large numbers infections in some of the countries they're starting to take them home and their parents and grandparents are starting to get the disease. So that low mortality rate that you're seeing now immediately may well not last. We actually had a question on this from rob which we've kind of covered a little bit but I'm just in the interests of closing the loop rubs asking with the numbers of positive cases in France. Spain and so on. Increasing rapidly and few debts did the first wave just kill all the vulnerable are we seeing case Democ now instead of a pandemic? No. It's it's certainly didn't. You if you just look even in Sweden where it was really bad h care homes, luckily, it did not kill all the vulnerable there. Still plenty vulnerable vulnerable people alive and remember vulnerability can just. Being over seventy or eighty, and there is another issue here too, which is the accuracy of death certificates, and whether we're attributing all the deaths to covid nineteen people who actually died of covid nineteen. So definitely, not an excuse to let our guard down and it could will see an uptick and that's the feature of this pandemic is that you can't relax can't change what you do because it will come back to bite you Israel thought the.

Will My Supply Chain Survive COVID-19?

"The commercial aerospace supply chain is writing. The sudden collapse, the spring passenger air travel after the outbreak of the latest novel Corona Virus and it's cove in Nineteen, disease has upended fortunes in the airliner manufacturing industry. That matters because commercial aerospace is responsible for about three quarters of the whole aerospace and defense sectors business activity. Cash is king right now throughout the supply chain and companies are struggling to have enough liquidity, according to what several advisors and analysts tell aviation week. while. Liquidity is more of a function of the wider economic downturn inside aerospace. There are even bigger challenges. Where production rates were once being pushed higher now a Williams are slashing them cascading pressure down the supply chain. At the L. A. M. in the top tier level. It has probably never been more important to have insight into your supply chain. Joining me to talk about that need, and what to do about it are John Schmidt? The Global Andy Lead at Accenture and Joyce Klein. Accenture leader in applied intelligence in the North American amd practice John Joyce. Welcome back. Thanks might go good to be back so John let me start with you. It seems obvious that OEM's and tier ones want insight into their suppliers. But while that was always true, I used to be about making sure that there were no bottlenecks that slowed or stop record high production now things chain what of new conditions that demand and customers pay better attention to their supply chain. Might go and in many ways the aerospace industry you know has a clear split between the companies that are working in the Corso world, and does indefens- you in the commercial. As you say, you know the concern used to be, we have a supply constrained world with very predictable demand, right always pushing for more trying take need those increased rates pushed by Boeing and. and Airbus and in the current world that's changed dramatically to being more of a supply volatile with unpredictable demand in the defense and space side of things you know things have largely remained in a predictable demand with an increased supply chain volatility, so by just keep looking at those things, predictability and the the constraint or volatility the spy chain. That's where the primary differences. And Commercial. We know that demand is going to be directly related to the bounce back of commercial air travel and the relative rates airlines choose to bring back stored aircraft versus take more efficient models on order from the OEM's causing more volatility in and demand, variability and defense. It's a bit different again. Demand Israel remained and the supply chains been impacted by Kobe in some cases they're tier one two or three companies, who source both commercial and defense or trying to generate cash to cover expenses and other cases, local Cobra outbreaks, and our common actions are impacting the spires ability to deliver on schedule, known both cases, aerospace and defense companies need. To deal with all totally like never before whether commercial or defense. So Joyce. Last time John and I talked here on Chuck six with. He kind of gave me the peak and do some new technology you all were working on. It's a new capability to peer into the supply chain including using an algorithm approach that allows more predictive insight, potentially even the ability to hotspot. What factories might be in trouble in the future? Can you tell us a little bit about what accenture is working on? And how does this work? Yes, absolutely Michael Accenture? We've been working with our clients in the supply chain area for many years using analytics and machine learning. In fact, if you go back to last year's pariser show in our accenture shall a. we had a digital showcase. Demo that focused on intelligence supply chain, and what this demo is a together machine, learning and artificial intelligence, and we used I at supply chain Europe e data to really understand delivery delays identify missing parts. We also looked at the opportunity for Automation Muller. Doing now is we're bringing together? All Lot of data sets and we're using artificial intelligence to help companies deal with the increase in volatility manage. Manage uncertainty and really get at supplier resiliency. That's really the core of what our solution is all about now so for North, America a and D client what we've done is we've taken and artificial intelligence engine that uses the supplier Jadot and what we're trying to do. We're actually working to predict the number of days late or a particular part, and we're doing that by bringing together a supplier. Number roaches order number eleven worry day in quantity, combination you all that information, Heather actually identify the number of as laid the opulent part is going to be and so by knowing the number of days way them. What were able to do is fight and determine. Do I have enough inventory? As coverage or that? Particular part is ultimately if I Joan I need to make additional decisions around production, and so what? We've been able to do with our solution. Experience up to ten percent improvement apart availability production. And we're also able to change the role of the delivery service analyst. Previous lanes individuals really operating. All here.

The 'ludicrous' coronavirus certificate your boss wants

"We're hearing about this trend that seems to be starting with. Employers or schools or day care centers are requiring a carbon nineteen clearance. What people have to guard the pay and get basically a medical certificate? Saying that they're not sick and the Royal College of General Practitioners has put out a statement saying please don't do that. For number of reasons, chiefly, because it's kind of impossible, that's absolutely right. Employer should not be asking employees for that sort of proof, because the proof doesn't exist as we've said before you've never negative test, let's say you are infected with Covid nineteen and you get the test done on day one. It's a high likelihood of negative and hopefully more positive as days go on, so you could have a negative tested means absolutely nothing, and even if you're not infected the day after you do the test, you could be infected and the day before test doesn't matter, so you're going to have the test every day before you get to work. It's completely ludicrous. Ludicrous and really not the way to go, and what really should happen is that people with symptoms should not go to work and be tested to make sure they're not positive, and then even people symptoms shouldn't go to work, even if it's the common cold, or it might even be the flu and you gotta wait interval symptoms settled. We don't have to be isolated for two weeks. If you don't have covid nineteen, the difficulty with this is that GPA's at the moment especially more. I've alerted than ever. The last thing we need is more people trying to vie for that really valuable time. Jupiter are probably not that busy at the moment actually. Doing a lot of telehealth consultations, the surgery's going back into action, but the reality here is that you're asking for tests really meaningless in in the absence of the likelihood that you might be infected I think it's fair enough. If you're maybe a little bit of symptoms, you into a protest, you want to get tested. That's fair enough, but to ask this on a one off basis for a line to say the you're covered negative on one occasion. When in fact you might well be positive is ludicrous. So what should you do if your boss does ask you? You for one of these medical clearance certificates well I. Think should show them the release from the Sterling College of General Practitioners and we'll put that up on our website and you can find. They're pretty often. Take it in one of the things that they do say in their release from the pay is that there's not an unlimited number of tests which is of course true. What do you think about this? Perhaps discouraging people from getting tested because they don't want to be wasting them. There are plenty of tests. People need to test. They should get it done. But the would I mean would put an unnecessary extra burden on testing, and there is a cost attached to that, but we've got plenty of tests. I wouldn't worry too much about that. So question from Perry about why people is symptomatic. She's asking to raise such as why some people is symptomatic. Is the viruses only mall in these people? Can it be savvy and they still show no symptoms I think she's talking about viral. Load here, so let's be clear what we're talking about here. So this is somebody without symptoms who is covered nineteen positive call positive for the SARS covey to virus. That could be two situations one. Is that your? Throughout the course of your infection and the other. Is that your committee that you're having any symptoms yet? But in five to fourteen days you will develop symptoms, and so the reason why you could be asymmetric. Right through the course of your disease is that you got a very small doors of the virus? It's likely that the doors you get an. Organism, is related to the severity of disease. One reason why healthcare professionals can get very severe disease, so if you get a walloping doors of the viruses likely, you're gonNA. Get A walloping case of the disease. It's not true in everybody, but that's one reason so. That, you could be symptomatic. Probably the biggest reason why people symptomatic is their age and children beyond one year of age through too young I don't who'd through to fifty sixty years old, the likelihood of getting symptomatic disease increases, and it's almost certainly do in that case to the response of your immune system, because essentially symptoms like coughing sneezing feeling fatigued, are all symptoms not so much of the virus, but of your body's reaction to the virus, so it's like getting an immunization in your. Your arm it goes red and inflamed that your immune system responding to the immunization, and it's a good thing because it shows that you're reacting to it and similarly with your body, so your body is reacting strongly immunologically. Then you're more likely to get symptoms, and of course this severe covid nineteen disease is actually a disease of the immune system. It's an overreaction of the immune system doesn't mean to say if you get a few symptoms like fatigue or Or loss of taste, and so on that you're heading for severe disease, but it's a sign that your immune system is reacting quite strongly to the virus, so those are the two reasons those of the virus and your immune response related to your age in particular,
