"And as jonathan said yesterday the virus is mutating thousands of times. Every minute right waiting for that next silver bullet that works around all of the vaccines and then we're truly fucked because we would have had an opportunity once. Vaccinations were rolling out at the beginning of the year to really squash this and we didn't and that's what we were in a race against time for because scientists know how viruses work and this one is an anomaly on a lot of fronts but they know the more virus the more likely it mutates and our inability to catch the mutation before it is now completely and totally making the vaccines that we do have ineffective. I don't wanna get to that place. And i know that you folks listening to this shores. Faulk want to get to that place. But i gotta tell you that that's where i believe we are headed. I think that we are headed for a very long hard fall and winter again and i am continually worry about the petri dish that we call our school systems particularly in these states with governors. That have turned themselves into executioners. You know i just every day i said to myself how did we get here. Why are here and every day it comes back to the bullshit from the republican party.

"For your trial at noon dot com slash crooked that's n. o. m. dot com slash crooked to sign up for your trial here to talk about the delta variant. All the latest on covert is marcela. Nunez smith white house cove. Nineteen equity taskforce chair and professor of medicine and epidemiology at yale. Dr smith great to have you here today. Thank you the with you. Well let's start with president biden's speech today on vaccines. What does he announcing it. What is he trying to accomplish. Yeah we're at a really important right now. I think it's so important and key to the president is talking directly to the american people saying this is what we are. Let's talk straight about this pandemic we have delta here now and that makes things more urgent than ever before right if you're unvaccinated. Your risk is so tremendously high. And so the key still is vaccination. That is the path out of the pandemic and so the president does making sure people understand those basic tenants of the science but also pushing important policies to help get us. They're talking about the key. Need for incentives making sure barriers or address for people like to peed. Time off to get back to me to get their families vaccinated and of course. Really importantly saying the federal government is a large employer. And we're gonna kind of model that safe workplace behavior and so can you just shuttle the like what. The new federal government policy is now earlier in the week. The department of veterans affairs and look in hospitals for those patients facing employees workers. Vaccination is is going to be a a must And that is something that's happening in healthcare systems across the country. Certainly something happening. Where i work and today you know really very strong clear statement from the federal administration that if you can't attest to being vaccinated as a federal employee as a contractor then it's going to be just important mandatory for you to be part of a rigorous testing protocol. We have to make sure that our workplaces are safe. Why not go a step further right at with you. A lot of companies now are insisting on proof of vaccination to return to employment or part of employment because under the policy. As i understand it if you are not vaccinated you have to go through testing and mitigation but that still puts the vaccinated employees at some measure of risk. Why not go one step. Further and have an actual mandate on federal employees. Be real clear. It's not in anybody's advantage to try to game this system right. I mean if you're unvaccinated and you around others you are extremely extremely high risk. So everything we're talking about is really a bridge vaccination. They're going to be a few people. Of course are medical reasons. Why vaccines are not advise. That's a very very small number of people. So i think what we're seeing is making sure people understand the urgency and how this window of time able to say let me go get vaccinated and everything we're talking about. Terms of mitigation is that bridge testing strategies masking strategies. Those are not destinations in this public health crisis. The destination is vaccination and so whether we see municipalities are employers. It's important to give people that window of time to get vaccinated. So is there a point which understanding that as i see the numbers the number of daily doses going pretty quickly here which is very good sign but is there appointed which you will know. Federal government other should say to unvaccinated. People like you have to do this as a part of your federal employment school students have to attest to vaccination for polio measles etc. Is there a need. For more sticks. In the process of getting people vaccinated vaccination is obviously. This is a personal decision. It's a choice. I do think when you look across the country like you see. The combination of different strategies and approaches directly to the final ministration guidance policies are gonna continue to be revisited. I think this is the right policy the right direction the right conversation where we are right now before iraq to seeing internal medicine. Physician needed to attention might higher career for my employment for example with flu influenza. And that's key that's about keeping you safe is keeping my colleagues say it's about keeping my patients safe so certainly you know we talk a lot. You bring up a really great pie. which is you know. We have a history in the country about vaccination a shared understanding about the critical importance of vaccination for our public health. The the revise mask guidance. From the cdc. I think it was a wakeup call to a lot of people particularly vaccinated people about the risk. That still exists in that. The pandemics is can you. Can you help explain to our listeners. What the new guidance is. And why the cdc took this step to revise. Guidance has this is so important. So the cdc came out and updated their guidance and very appropriately. So i think you know. I am certainly reassured as someone living in our country that designs the evidence the data really leading the way that everybody's paying really close attention when the science changes and the recommendations change so this week. Cdc came out. I point is. We are now living in the time of delta. So delta is a very unlike the variance we had previously. It is extremely extremely contagious. And so with the new dynamics of this virus new dynamics of transmission gotta think again about what's necessary. I think the sort of these two ways right cd. I made recommendations directed that communities and then recommendations directed at individuals on the community level. Cdc really recommended and of local leaders encourage vaccination right number one vaccination particularly in areas where there is hybrid transmission ninety nine percent of people hospitalized and dying in our country now from nineteen unvaccinated. This is a preventable.

Vaccine Distribution: An Equity Challenge

"Okay paying we are talking vaccine equity in the pandemic and just a quick note. We are focusing a just here in the united states for this episode. So let's start with some top line numbers three covid. Nineteen vaccines have been authorized for emergency. Use in the us one very recently. How many people have actually been vaccinated so far well. Since vaccine distribution started in mid december around fifty million people have gotten at least one dose of a covid nineteen vaccine that includes about twenty five million people who got into doses means they've been fully vaccinated with either the pfizer or madonna vaccines. And that's some real progress over the past few months. Still just around eight percent of the total. Us population has been fully vaccinated. So there's still a long way to go. yeah i mean. Do we have any demographics on who the people who got the vaccine are like. Do we have any data on race or ethnicity well. Last week i spent some time at a cdc conference which was online and a bunch of public officials talked about it including dr marcela nunez smith who we heard from earlier. People of color are getting vaccinated rates below their representation in the general population. We know these challenges reflect longstanding deeply rooted systemic rallies. But here's the thing. The data that she's talking about is still pretty limited. You know so far race. Nothing to see. Data have only been collected for about half of the shots given out. Wow only half the thought i mean. There's a little bit frustrating. That's that's not enough data. Yeah it's it's really not and the biden administration pointed this out themselves and they acknowledged that it's pretty abysmal. Doctor rachelle will lansky. She's head of the centers for disease control and prevention and she says the problem is coming from a couple of different directions. Individuals may choose not to report. It may not be required of or requested by providers and some providers as well as jurisdictions have restrictions on data sharing so some of these data gaps are due to the fact that we have inconsistent systems around data gathering. Which you know is something that has been in quite a bit with this pandemic. Yeah that's certainly part of it and there's reasons why people might not want to share their personal information about race ethnicity especially people of color you know. The federal government has a long history of exploiting and under serving minority communities and that extends to this day but now there are government officials saying that. It's up to them to try and convince people that it's important to give their information. Here's neurath shaw. Health official in the state of maine in public health. What gets measured gets managed and if we measure the right things then we will manage the right issues if we measure the wrong things. Then the did that we collect. That may not bear resemblance to current present. Elf challenges is actually what we will end up managing. Yeah so early. On in fact vaccine distribution the only metric that was available was the number of doses sent out in the number of doses administered which basically measured speed and so if the biden harris administration wants to achieve both and equity with axiom distribution. They're going to have to get more comprehensive data on race ethnicity to get a handle on the problem. Yeah i mean. I want to talk about what the biden administration is doing specifically to address this issue of a vaccine but first let's talk about some of the ways. The general rollout has put. Vulnerable communities added disadvantage. Because that's definitely happening. Yeah and to be honest. It's been hard for everyone including health reporters to keep up with the changes that are happening. Daily and weekly with axiom distribution. I mean every single state has its own rules about who qualifies and had a sign up. Obviously that confusion is compounded. If the information isn't coming to you in the language you speak or you don't have access to computers and email and even for people who may have read up on how to book an appointment. It's taken them hours to actually research in book one. So if you don't have time to figure that out and if you don't have access to transportation or time off work to get an appointment and was places you probably haven't been able to get vaccinated yet. Yeah i mean and that's when you know for sure that you want the vaccine. Exactly dr christian rumors. He's a physician and executive that family health centers of san diego. He points out that people also have questions that are very specific to their own circumstances and we want those answered before they feel like they can make an informed decision to actually get vaccinated. Here he is speaking to. My colleague yuki noguchi residency is not just one thing. And in many cases. They're very unique to their own situation. Like i just got treated for cancer. Or i'm on a certain medication or i've had an allergy in the past and those are questions that'll be answered most likely from talking one on one with a medical professional or some other trusted person. Which again if you're part of an underserved community is hard to access. If you don't have the time to seek out those answers it'll be much easier if the vaccines and the resources were coming directly to you right right okay. So ping what has the biden administration specifically announced or done to address vaccine equity so at that. Cdc conference. dr marcellina smith acknowledged that this is a huge issue. And it's not gonna be easily solved. Must attend the underlying social structures arborist as we look ahead to building resilience into our recovery. What we do believe now. Is that the way we get american vaccinating and the emphasis he placed reaching the hardest hit communities attached just as important as being the goals the number of people that's needed so their strategy to get to those goals basically amounts to increasing a couple of different things number one the number of vaccines available number two the number of people giving vaccines and number three. The number of places people can get vaccinated and specific to equity. They've launched a few fema supported mass vaccination sites. These are huge operations set up in stadiums and parking lots that are aiming to give at six thousand shots a day and they're putting some of these in places that score high on something called the social vulnerability right which is a cdc measurement of how vulnerable community is based on social factors like poverty for example. They've also started sending vaccines directly community health centers which serve around thirty million people over. All many whom are rural belong to minority groups or are low income and the centers can also offer outreach in different languages and support for signing up. I mean are they also leaning on non-medical sites to i mean like i know working with community leaders and partners be especially effective. Yeah well they're also talking about sending out that nation trucks to job sites and setting up clinics and local churches and high school gyms and ymca's those non-medical sites that you were talking about and these community clinics might not be serving thousands of people a day but they will make the vaccine available and convenient for people in those communities to get gosh so the vibe administration is really trying to take a both and approach. They're supporting mass vaccination sites to get a lot of people vaccinated quickly and they're also realizing that some people will take more time and more effort to reach so they're also trying to figure out ways to gather better data and target underserved areas. Okay so you know. Most of what we've been talking about today paying as the government is handling this which i would argue is the most important facet but i mean. Is there a sense of individual responsibility here. I know there are a bunch of stories out there about people line jumping or like going into communities outside their own to vaccines how we have all heard the stories and it's hard to say how much it's happening but it does make people feel like the system isn't working you know and what bioethicists have said to me is. That cheating happens for sure but it's probably not happening enough to undermine the system overall i mean. Is that all kind of a short term problem. I mean there's a huge demand right at this point and not enough supply but the hope is that you know in the coming weeks or months the situation will change as vaccine manufacturing and distribution ramp up even further right. Yeah and that's been the hope all along. I mean for weeks now. We've been hearing about a flood of vaccines that will be coming online in the near future. That will make it less. Cut throat to vaccine appointment and we're not there yet but there are some promising signs. The government has now ordered a total of six hundred million doses of pfizer in modern of vaccines to be delivered by the end of july. Which is enough to cover three hundred million people and that's more than all the adults in the us right right. Plus we've got the newly authorized. John jay vaccine which will eventually make a difference right and getting all these shots in urgent right now because we're kind of in a race between vaccinations and variants. Which means that. The more people protect right now. The fewer people will catch the virus and the fewer chances the virus will have to keep mutating in ways that might make it avai the vaccines and the treatments. We've developed so that's why it's still super super important to keep the other measures that prevent the virus from spreading double masking staying physically distant. You know we're all excited about vaccines but health. Experts are saying right now that in the middle of the vaccination campaign is not the time to let up our guard okay pingpong we appreciate you as always thank you for coming on the show things so much. Mattie appreciate you to

Sound that was someone who was who was miked. Yeah he was mike. That's a good point. So i wonder control room have been a good because the guy control room director. Usually mike right on his right on him sounded too good. The mike sounds too good. That's i know. I know how those sound. It just doesn't sound like that. And and if it's a talkback mike in the booth it's also not gonna sound that good this someone who likely was wearing a mike so someone who was also speaking that day and that would have to look into this is the example and this is in fact when you have.

That's not getting the bugs out of there. we have put a fifty five bugs in there to track trump. We ought to get them all out of there. There's a also why is cameras standing behind him without you on the other side. These aren't all healthy addicts that he's signing off as fao cheesy and camelot standing there the whole time and they got their day rate they might as well you might as well put him on set the got their per diem everything some but make them work and a little gets with the big giant seal. She's just beyond me the year. It is weird. It is weird. I wonder does has. It has been asked this question. But i don't know if there's any any answer so as external getting the bugs out of the room one of the executive orders that Biden signed has me concerned and it is the food Financial food security. And i've been hearing this for about a month now food security and even in the In the crazy nut job conspiracy circles on just going to be food shortages. It's common common. Which i kind of ignored. It's hard to ignore. Bill gates now being america's biggest farmland owner. Well i have. I have an opinion on that. I'm very interested. There's a paper that i put in the show notes. People take a look at it as the covid. Nineteen working paper. International food security assessment And it's not good as A lot of people will be are. And we'll get hungrier because we have no food and they can't afford food first of all is not any. Large percentage is a lot of acreage. But we have so much in. This country is ludicrous and so but gates has two or three or maybe even five. He's got a team of financial advisers. And i'm sure that he ran across the same research. I did which is in detroit. This kind of good news and bad news in that is in a real. If you look at. Because i always like to track real estate prices to the stock market and rarely do the to ever coincide they go in different directions but one of the sure fire investments if you wanna make an investment if you suspected downturn is coming and Argue it either way the evidence could go either way except for goldman. It's the best investment that the best investment you can make in a in an economic downturn just coincidentally is farmland and this is shown up a lottery searching and it would be it's just a good investment and and what happens farm that goes up about thirty or forty percent and when you have billions of dollars you gotta deal with you start to get good return on your investments because you if you buy something you run the market up yourself and then you can't get out but with farmland and bland in general when you're buying huge parcels. You're not going to jack. The price up just because you bought a billion dollars for a second do anything to the price. Actually so you can buy in is really good. Investment in the market will take it up thirty or forty percent. There is a collapse if there's no collapse there's almost no loss so it's almost a sure fire bet and i think that bill got the word to do this and that's what it's just i think it's just a pure investment.

"And Dr Marcella Nunez Smith, who will be lean our equity work and the covered response and Jeff signs and Natalie Quillin, who are managing this whole effort. Yesterday. Yesterday. During my inaugural address, I offered a silly in prayer and of silent prayer was most salient and silent. I thought it was important that people understand what had happened that we all paid tribute to the our prayers for those 400,000 Americans who have lost their lives in this pandemic. On Tuesday. Jill and I common, Doug, we stood at the reflecting pool. In front of the Lincoln Memorial and joined Americans all across the country to remember those 400,000 moms and dads, husbands and wives, Children, sons, daughters. And I said at that moment that to hell, we must remember. The hell we must remember. It's important to do that as a nation. When we must also act, though not just remember. Yet for the past year, we couldn't rely on the federal government to act with the urgency and focus and coordination we needed. And we have seen the tragic cost of that failure. 3 to 4000 deaths per day. Date where the 24 million Americans 24 million Americans have been infected. Put that in context, America makes up 4% of the world's population. 25% of the world's confirmed covert 19 cases and only 20% of all the cove in 19 deaths. We have 4% of the world's population. Pandemic. Lee that if endemic, Scuse me has disproportionately impacted on blacks, Latinos and native Americans who are about four times as likely to be hospitalized in nearly three times more likely to die. Makeover. 19 pandemic than White Americans. Hospitals air out of beds. Businesses. They're closed for good schools are caught in between. While the vaccine provides so much hope. Rollout has been a dismal failure thus far. So I understand the despair and frustration so many Americans and how they're feeling. I understand why many governors, mayors, county officials, tribal leaders feel like they're left on their own without a clear national plan to get them through the crisis. Let me be very clear. Things they're going to continue to get worse before they get better. The memorial We weigh held two nights ago will not be our last one. Unfortunately. The death toll will likely top 500,000 next month. Cases will continue to mount We didn't get into this mess overnight. It's gonna take months for us to turn things around. Let me be equally clear. We will get through this. We will defeat this pandemic. Into a nation waiting for action. Let me be the clearest on this point. Help is on the way. Today. Today I am unveiling a national strategy on covert 19. Executive actions to beat this pandemic. This plan reflects the ideas I said forward during the campaign and further refined over the past three months. Consist of my transitions team's task force Tony Fauci and the team here today and other experts put this plan together. Our national strategy is comprehensive. It's based on science, not politics. It's based on truth, not denial and his detail. You could review this entire plan this entire plan. Going to white house dot gun. It is so detailed. It is over 101 198 pages. And in complete detail what we're going to do. Plan starts with mounting an aggressive, safe and effective vaccination campaign. Meet our goal of ministry 100 million shots on our 1st 100 days in office were on day one. This will be one of the greatest operational challenges our nation has ever undertaken. I'm committed to get you done. We're committed to get into town. And I explained, As I explained last week will move heaven and Earth to get more people vaccinated for free and create more places for them to get vaccinated. Mobilized more medical teams to get shots and people's arms and to increase vaccine supply and get it out the door as fast as possible. Yesterday we got started. He directed the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA to start standing up the first federally supported community vaccination centers with the goal of standing up 100 centers within the next month. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will launch the federal pharmacy program to make vaccines available to communities in their local pharmacies beginning earlier within, if I think it by the seventh or eighth of February and in very early February Also tasked the Department of Health and Human Services to prepare and expand the pool of medical professionals who can administer the vaccine. Can minister the vaccine. I mean, sure, we have enough vaccinators, the people doing the vaccines to meet the nation's needs and quickly. Addition to this effort. Our administration will be asking Congress to fund for the funds to grow the public health workforce. We also are going to take immediate steps to partner with governors, mayors and other local officials, who we've been talking to all along who are on the front lines of this fight. We direct we drink. We directed FEMA to establish a covert response liaison for each state, which means every state will have a point person at the federal level. Maximize cooperation between the federal government and the states and where it falls short to be made known about it makes me May known immediately. This is a model. We used to respond to Hurricanes Hurricane Sandy, which I was deeply involved with. And in just a few moments, I'm gonna sign a declaration to immediately begin reimbursing states 100% for the use of their national guards to help covered relief efforts. Something Democrats and Republican governors alike have called for. But the brutal truth is, it's going to take months before we can get the majority of Americans vaccinated, so While we increased vaccinations. We're gonna take steps necessary now to slow the spread of the disease as well. One of our 100 day challenges is asking the American people to mask up. For the 1st 100 days the next 99 days. Mass could become a partisan issue. Unfortunately, But it's a patriotic act. For a few months to wear a mask. No vaccines. The fact is that the single best thing we could do they have more important in the vaccines because they take time to work. And if we do, this is Americans, the experts say, by wearing a mask from now until April, we'd save more than 50,000 lives going forward. 50,000 lives. I'm asking every American to mask up for the next 100 days. Yesterday I signed an executive action requires mask and social distancing on federal property. Today will be signing additional ex executive action to extend masking requirements on interstate travel, like on trains, planes and bustle. And the light of the new covered various that we're learning about. We are way are we're instituting now a new measure for individuals flying into the United States from other countries In addition to wearing masks Everyone flying to the United States from another country. We'll need to test before they get on that plane before they depart and quarantine when they arrive in America. Our national plan launches a full scale war time effort to address the supply shortages by ramping up production and protective equipment, syringes, needles, you name it, And when I say wartime people kind of look at me like more time. As I said last night. 400,000 American have died. That's more than have died in all of World War two. 400,000 This is a war time undertaking. Today. I'm signing the executive action to use the Defense Production Act. And all other available authorities to direct all federal agencies and private industry to accelerate the making of everything is needs to protect test vaccinate. And take care of our people. All right. We've already identified suppliers and.

"Health professionals if dr South she if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I'll be the first in line to take it. Absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I'm not taking it. Um, not taking it. That was Kamila Harris back in October, just weeks before the election, showing doubt about the about the vaccines. Saying. Look, I'm a little skeptical of this vaccine, baby. Not so sure I'm going to take it. I'm I'm not going to really trust it. If it just comes out under trump. I'm gonna need a lot more than that to trust this vaccine because I'm not taking Whatever Trump makes in his bathtub in the White House, I need something has made a real lab by real scientists. I've got news for you. Comma wears. That's exactly of course what was playing out? Throughout the year. But you would rather show doubt in order to secure an election victory, then to help instill confidence. And bring about the conclusion to a scary public health crisis. That's how you spent the campaign. So now, Beverly Yesterday, Kamila Harris is trying to clean up her mess. So she does this big public demonstration of getting the vaccine again. By the way, she's like Not at risk category. She's She's not one of the elderly people who needs it. Running mate is, by the way. She's not one of them who desperately needs it. So she's taking a vaccine when others should probably be getting it. Somebody who's like actually a health care worker. Somebody who's actually vulnerable somebody who's the most at risk. But Kamila Harris, as she said she jumped straight to the front of the line. And here she is yesterday. I've now been vaccinated as Joe likes the same. There's a big difference between the vaccine and vaccinations. I want to encourage everyone to get the vaccine. It is relatively painless. It happens really quickly. It is safe. Um, the multi arena the visor Today I had the Moderna vaccine. My husband is gonna have it today as well. I look forward to getting the second vaccine and literally this is about saving lives. It's literally back. Anything wrong? I trust the scientists, and it is the scientist who created and approved this vaccine. You see what she's doing? You see her trying to clean up her act where she told people not to trust the vaccine in the first place. Awfully nice, By the way. I love the part where she says it's so quick and easy. Yeah. If you are powerful and have access to the vaccine, the rest of us we're all waiting, like, okay, maybe someday I'll get it. But I can't jump to the front of the line. And of course, she has the whole press conference to show it. I actually dislike these press conferences. It's like, Let me roll up my sleeve actually didn't know Mike Pence had short sleeve until he got the vaccine. I'd never seen him in a short sleeve shirt before when he got it, but Yeah. Look, what I wanted to know is why did she not think Donald Trump and this? Well, you know why she doesn't want to give him any credit for what happened with Operation works Be, But of course, when the rubber hits the road, she's going to get the vaccine. What I did enjoy. Yesterday was there's a lot of trolling and reference to this Fox News is Janice Dean tweeted out that it would send an incredible message to see a politician bringing a first responders, senior citizen or essential worker to take their spot in line for the covert vaccine. Now is somebody who's going to be taking Over as the VP. I do think we need our top leaders to be vaccinated. Don't necessarily have an issue with that, however, at the same time there, there's a lot of discussion on how these vaccines are going to be distributed. And here's the question I haven't and you just alluded to. That is what about the people who are dying in nursing homes? What about my grandmother's in a nursing home? We have not even touched her since March. We've seen her through glass. When is she going to get a vaccine? I have no idea. I have no idea. Why didn't Kamila Harris says, As Janice teens fed give it to her mom instead? Are we really private prioritizing the most vulnerable especially when even within the medical community. We're talking about people work even and dentist offices to receptionists in a dentist's office who gets this vaccine over people in nursing homes who haven't been able to be around loved one. I find the whole roll out of all of this Just, frankly embarrassing, shameful and tragic. Yeah, I mean, comma Harris should get the vaccine someday. It wasn't yesterday. It wasn't yesterday. In my view, I she she literally jumped to the front of the line. She wasn't lying. She was saying. She did say in that earlier October club. She's like, Go us. Here's the scientists say it's okay, I'll be first in line really? How do you get to be the front of one? How do you who's not any address category Get to the front of the line. Be awfully nice to be that connected and powerful. You could just do whatever you want. Get the vaccine at any moment s Oh, there you go. Good. Kamila Harris now vaccinated and you're not on Meanwhile, it on your point of how this is being distributed other than you know, the rich and the powerful having access first we've got Joe Biden. Suggesting yesterday during this press conference that he gave which is really, you know, not much of a press conference. It's just him reading statements. He says he wants the vaccines to be distributed. Pay attention to this ever equitably. Equitably. Said that the most vulnerable right that's what that means, right. Most vulnerable equity is one of the buzzwords of the year. So when you hear the word equity, that's when you start running in the opposite direction, because it's not actually about treating people equally. It's about treating them differently based on their skin color, and this is always the case when it comes to public policy, and when somebody starts talking about equity or equitable itty of Distributing, um, a vaccine. For instance, this is about saying you're like wings of getting a vaccine should be based on your skin color. The chances of you getting a vaccine should be based on your skin color. That's what buying was advocating yesterday. And if you need more proof of that, look no further than earlier this month, one of his advisers Name of Dr Marcella Nunez Smith, given an interview to The Associated Press in here's the headline. Biden Advisors says race central to Virus Fight And the article begins this way. Addressing racial disparities in the U. S coronavirus crisis cannot be an afterthought. A top adviser to President elect Joe Biden on the Cove in 19 pandemic response said Tuesday. That means when testing and vaccination programs are designed and implemented, for example, they must consider fairness and equity along with efficiency in order to be truly effective. Said Dr Marcella Noona Smith, an expert on healthcare inequality at Yale University. Surprise surprise coming for me. L we cannot get this pandemic under control. If we do not address the head on the issues of inequity in our country, there is no other way. All right. I can't think of one other way. Prioritize the most vulnerable without regard for their skin color. Wouldn't that be the way that you actually In a real world handle this. This this illness with quote equity. Making sure that no one is treated differently on the basis of their skin color. Isn't that the goal here shouldn't obey. Morning. 2nd 6 15 now w m a l traffic.

When President elected Joe Biden takes office next month, one of his first priorities will be responding to the pandemic, and today he named his picks for key players who will advise him on how to contain it and how to get people vaccinated. His picks include some very familiar faces and some new faces to joining us now from Wilmington, Delaware. To talk about all of this is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Hey, Tam. Hey, Elsa. All right, so let's just start off with perhaps the most familiar face on this team, Dr Anthony Fauci. What, exactly Well, his will be one bite and becomes president. Dr. Fauci will continue to lead the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases where he's been involved in vaccine development. And he will also be an adviser to the president. The president elect now On covert 19. He said on CNN that he thought his role would be similar, though What he didn't say is that Biden is a lot more likely to listen to him on a regular basis than President Trump has been certainly of late. Fauci will bring continuity between the administration's and he knows all the new players, including Biden's pick for the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rachelle Wolinsky, as well as his pick for surgeon general Vivek Murthy. Here's what he said on CNN today. I know both Rochelle Walensky and Vivek Murthy very well. I mean, I've been working with the back for years when he was the surgeon general during the Obama administration and Rochelle Wolinsky has been a colleague of mine. She's an infectious disease expert. From Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts General Hospital. Now the CDC director job doesn't require Senate confirmation, but surgeon General will and Murthy had a difficult time getting confirmed last time because of his work on gun safety issues, Right. Okay, there's another doctor on this list. Marcella newness, Smith. Of Yale School of Medicine. What is her role going to be? She's going to lead something that Biden is creating called the Cove it 19 Equity Task Force. As we all know. By now, the burden of covert 19 has been disproportionately felt by people of color, and Nunez Smith is the founding director. Of Yale's Equity Research and Innovation Center. She's been working on this issue extensively and building trust in communities that don't necessarily trust the medical community or vaccines. Let's Turn now to the pick for health and human services secretary. The person who will be getting that job is state Attorney general of California, Javi Airbus era. He's also former congressman. Why do you think the Sarah was selected for this particular job? You know, he's been actively involved in defending the Affordable Care act, leading a coalition of states fighting to save it all the way to the Supreme Court. He spoke about that effort last year on all things considered, Americans are fed up with uncertainty. When it comes to whether or not they can send their child to a doctor or the hospital. We deserve to have certainty. Health care is not some widget that you play with its life and death. But beyond that, while attorney general in California he went after a major hospital system in the state for anti competitive practices. He backed legislation aimed at preventing drug companies from keeping generic drugs off the market. And the thought is that he may be able to bring some of that experience and energy to bringing down health care costs. He would also be the first Latino to lead the department. He grew up in Sacramento with working class immigrant parents. He got into Stanford, according to his official bio after fishing and application out of the trash that his friend and thrown away his personal story is something that you can expect to see Biden and his team highlight, especially since Biden's been under pressure to make good on his promise to have a diverse cabinet, right.

When President elect Joe Biden takes office next month, one of his first priorities will be responding to the pandemic, and today he named his picks for key players who will advise him on how to contain it and how to get people vaccinated. His picks include some very familiar faces and some new faces to joining us now from Wilmington, Delaware. To talk about all of this is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Hey, Tam. Hey, Elsa. All right, so let's just start off with perhaps the most familiar face on this team, Dr Anthony Fauci. What, exactly Well, his will be when Biden becomes president. Dr. Fauci will continue to lead the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases where he's been involved in vaccine development. And he will also be an adviser to the president. The president elect now On covert 19. He said on CNN that he thought his role would be similar, though What he didn't say is that Biden is a lot more likely to listen to him on a regular basis than President Trump has been certainly of late. Fauci will bring continuity between the administration's and he knows all the new players, including Biden's pick for the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rachelle Wolinsky, as well as his pick for surgeon general Vivek Murthy. Here's what he said on CNN today. I know both Rochelle Walensky and Vivek Murthy very well. I mean, I've been working with the back for years when he was the surgeon general during the Obama administration and Rochelle Wolinsky has been a colleague of mine. She's an infectious disease expert. From Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts General Hospital. Now the CDC director job doesn't require Senate confirmation, but surgeon general will and Murthy had a difficult time getting confirmed last time because of his work on gun safety issues, Right. Okay, there's another doctor on this list. Marcella Nunez Smith. Of Yale School of Medicine. What is her role going to be? She's going to lead something that Biden is creating called the Cove it 19 Equity Task Force. As we all know. By now, the burden of covert 19 has been disproportionately felt by people of color, and Nunez Smith is the founding director. Of Yale's Equity Research and Innovation Center. She's been working on this issue extensively and building trust in communities that don't necessarily trust the medical community or vaccines. Let's Turn now to the pick for health and human services secretary. The person who will be getting that job is state Attorney general of California, Javi Airbus era. He's also former congressman. Why do you think the Sarah was selected for this particular job? You know, he's been actively involved in defending the Affordable Care act, leading a coalition of states fighting to save it all the way to the Supreme Court. He spoke about that effort last year on all things considered, Americans are fed up with uncertainty. When it comes to whether or not they can send their child to a doctor or the hospital. We deserve to have certainty. Health care is not some widget that you play with its life and death. But beyond that, while attorney general in California he went after a major hospital system in the state for anti competitive practices, he Act legislation aimed at preventing drug companies from keeping generic drugs off the market. And the thought is that he may be able to bring some of that experience and energy to bringing down health care costs. He would also be the first Latino to lead the department. He grew up in Sacramento with working class immigrant parents. He got into Stanford, according to his official bio after Fishing an application out of the trash that his friend and thrown away. His personal story is something that you can expect to see Biden and his team highlight, especially since Biden's been under pressure to make good on his promise to have a diverse cabinet, right. Lastly, there is a White House position. Jeff Science will be the coordinator of the pandemic response. He's also gonna be a counselor to the president. There has been some pushback right to this particular selection from progressives right? He was a top economic official in the Obama White House. He famously was brought in to help after that disastrous rollout of healthcare dot Gove and save the launch of the Affordable Care Act. There has been pushed back as you say, from progressives to his appointment. He comes from the business world since leaving government he's Leading investment firm, and he also served on the Facebook.
