Early in his tenure, governors, most of them, am acquainted with a few state constitutions, certainly in California, can fire whomever they want if they impede his actions in an emergency.

Now then I went and I saw the story on the blaze dot com Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield lashed out at the NFL over the league's Chinese coronavirus protocols after 19 players were placed on the COVID-19 list ahead of the important games that will determine their standing in the playoffs. Mayfield fired off a series of tweets criticizing the protocols. Quote, NFL make up your mind on the protocols, showing up and making only three teams test, also you can keep the games scheduled to make money. And this is true. So what's happening in the NFL is because the vaccine is not working as they told it was, obviously, a 100% vaccinated leagues are now having massive outbreaks, they're not even testing every single team because they know if they tested every single team, the league would completely fall apart. So instead of actually caring about natural immunity early intervention or Therapeutics, they're testing teams rather selectively. So Baker Mayfield will now miss the browns game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Now, do you remember when Aaron Rodgers? Got tested positive for the Fauci virus and everyone condemned him because he was unvaccinated, but now other people who are fully vaccinated are testing positive and the media doesn't cover the fact that the vaccines not protecting them.

I'm a big fan. Thank you. First, why don't you take a moment here to introduce yourself? Kind of your work, your credentials and how did you find yourself into this line of work? Well, I didn't choose COVID. It shows me. I'm a family board certified family physician plus 20 years in an upstate New York community. And in March of 2020, my community got hit and I found myself in the epicenter of the largest most concentrated outpatient code outbreak in the country. And at that time, if you recall, there was no treatment. So all we were telling patients that go home take Tylenol when you get sicker, go to the hospital, get on the respirator and New York area, 80% were dying. That didn't seem like a very good treatment approach.

"Government has put a hold on funding to the W. H. show pending a review of the organization's cover up and mismanagement of the corona virus outbreak we're going to be cheap H. reformers will put millions of citizens on a pathway to citizenship by what authority did you notify the bill of rights in issuing this order that's above my pay grade talkers I wasn't thinking of the bill of rights we did this one hundred sixty six it'll be a coast to coast from order to order to shine the so we are continuing I'd like to see the New York policies policies and the importation with I don't the so they can plan I need a coordinated action plan with the other states so one month will continue to close down policies what happens after then I don't know we will see depending on what the data shows where do you test how do you get the supplies how do you coordinate the private labs how do you coordinate the demand going to these private laps right everybody wants testing private sector companies are calling for testing and they're going right to the labs everyone's going right to these labs and fifty states are competing and the federal government is buying products from these laps this has to be figured out and it can only be figured out in partnership with the federal government on top of that when you go from testing you have to trace every person who comes up positive trace means investigate investigate all those prior contacts and then one contact he does that person lead you to another so the tracing investigators are really assembling an army that does not now exist I spoke to the White House again this morning about it I understand that this is a problematic area and the federal government's not eager to get involved in testing I get that but the plain reality here is we have to do it in partnership with the federal government see the city which is supposed to be the preeminent source one hundred and sixty million to two hundred fourteen million people infected they were projecting those who March thirteenth with the CDC was projected you know how many a hundred and sixty to two hundred forty million dollars we only have three hundred twenty eight million people in the country they were projecting more of health more than half of the population and maybe two thirds of the population infected and that was only a month ago they were saying two point four million people twenty one million people would be hospitalized do you know how many that we only have nine hundred thousand hospital beds in the nation they were saying by their projection on minimum of twice as many people would need hospital beds as we have hospital beds just imagine that that was the CDC the White House coronavirus task force the same thing why does forever virus does force was say one point five to two point two million deaths yes when I was a White House coronavirus task force as of March thirty one okay worst best case scenario one hundred to two hundred forty thousand with mitigation efforts March thirty one just over two weeks ago we said in public today I'm going to include public transportation systems private transportation carriers for hire vehicles any operator of a public system and operator of a private carrier and for hire vehicles must wear a mask at all times what does this mean if you get on the bus you need to wear a mask if you get in a train you need to wear a mask if you get into a private car service uber left the operator needs to wear a mask if you get on a private bus the operator needs to wear a mask and you will need to wear a mask on a on a private carrier so is this inconvenience yes when you're in a closed environment by definition you're not socially distancing by definition you're the front seat of a car to a backseat of a car your one seeking a bus to another seat in the bus this is a precaution for everyone that I think balances individual liberties with a a social conscience this will go into effect Friday eight PM we continue with the governor Andrew Cuomo of New York all right so I know you've got a run last question so if there's going to be these new normals I can I'm always speaking for myself I'm thinking as a a good citizen I don't really care if you if I have to put a mask on for a while to get past this crap or wear gloves or have my temperature taken if we protect medical privacy civil liberties constitutional rights now on the issue of money I was watching na kam read the Blasi knees you know cut and slash and I would obviously monies are coming I think Schumer claimed it was forty five million dollars to New York with the first build cetera I'm not going to like the fact that Americans won't like the fact if you know a city like New York separate from you with a pretty big budget is trying to balance their budget and take down their deficits off the backs of the American taxpayer that's very different from needed aid relief help for small business help for big business help for workers displaced and help for hospital workers would you agree that the monies have to be specifically assigned to those categories hello Kitty how all state government local government is basically a pastoral right they've done nothing for state and local government in the for first two bills they passed and they often can do categorical aid because if you don't give it to me then I just have to turn around and cut the hospital so what's the point of you want to help the hospitals I was the number one funder of hospitals I'm broke which I am I have a ten to fifteen billion dollar hole that means I'm just cutting the healthcare budget that's all I'm doing an education so if the if the goal was to actually fund health care then that's what the legislation could have done I just think it was I think it was political show on I think they gave the money to a lot of places that didn't have the cold with expenses there was one analysis that said some states are getting about two hundred thousand dollars for every cold eight case they had New York it's about twelve thousand dollars you know I was in Washington over New York at five hospitals you got to admit hi at the army corps of engineers what they did at the Javits center then they changed it to covert nineteen I didn't know till the other day that the president then have to go back and change the ventilation at the Javits center but that was three thousand beds now thank god you didn't need them and New York didn't need them but the projections at the time or that we would need them the same with the comfort I mean that became a a covert center is well taken the pressure they even provided the personal for New York did a lot for New York the ventilators five thousand plus groups were sent gloves mass Shiels you know alt respirators they're all sent so New York got more in terms of all of that help from president first shown I am the first to say and that's why I like to stay away from the politics because I can't do my job if on the way to a political lance you know you guys my brother you'll once you start taking positions in this polarized environment you lose fifty percent of the people I represent a hundred percent of the people the president was there for New York I told him I said I need help I need emergency beds because everybody's projection his own projection by the way CDC's projection said the minimum need two point four million beds you know how many beds we have in this nation one million his minimum projection at the CDC was two one half times the capacity of our hospital system nationwide I called them up I said I need emergency beds he got the army corps of engineers they came up I've never seen anybody build anything that fast amazing right hundred beds amazing brought up the U. S. navy ship comfort then went back and said let's converted from coal feed use the army corps of engineers did that they were magnificent and I'm the first one to say the president did it he moved fast and he delivered it I don't care what his politics are what political party that's a fact listen and I will say this even between that and I think it's probably the most insightful positions that he's taken throughout his presidency was the travel ban the first quarantine in over fifty years got the crap beat out of him for doing that and followed by the subsequent travel bans I think we cannot even begin to calculate how much worse this could be and I'm pissed by the way and how wrong these models and projections war they did not serve us well the models that they gave us now with that said we can't shut the country down again either what we open New York with the knowledge that there's going to be rebounds we've got to be able to you know hone in on hot spots to mitigation that's why I think keeping New York City the work force nonessential workers a lot of work from home right now for example I'm in a I'm in the studio I have one person in the next room usually there's ten people in front of me at fox when I do my TV show there's one person in another room and I'm doing the show every night and it's worked out incredibly well some are I know some people are more productive at home because they don't have the travel time we probably might we might solve New York City congestion and Paul one swipe but I think that I think the will if you create that natural social distancing and we suck it up with the gap with the masks and the gloves have banned because it's a pain in the **** you know it's a pain in the **** we'll do what America will do it I'm just to help prevent others from getting this and putting this totally behind us I think most people will do it as long as they respect privacy and other things we talk about they will do it and by the way I think if you just left it alone naturally things are not going to go back to the way they work they work because a lot of people realized I can work from home and I saved two hours a day in the commute a lot of businesses are going to realize that so I think a lot of the lessons are going to be natural and you're wearing a mask they given me a lot of blowback on masks I get it I get it but compared to the risk to yourself to what the people are you know in case you look in people on trying to been wearing masks for a long time just out of pollution you know I have doctors who say to me look we haven't been shaking hands for twenty years because shaking hands was crazy in terms of the trail Blazers governor L. by the way I love to throw your brother and elbow because he says he's a martial artist that I do I trade mixed martial arts number seven years he says he can get by you know what but anyway well he ought to do this please tell him that he's in our prayers were also framed for everybody in New York and everybody around the country I've had very dear friends of mine you know really come to the edge with us and all of them except one now more praying for the last one that I know but I'm praying for people I don't know I know you it's got to be tough on you your sister in law these your nieces and nephews are worried about and we're praying for them to I'm glad you got the hydroxy chloroquine I think that if we work with companies like Abbott on testing I'm I just have this confidence they've done so much so quickly that it'll involve even further if we can maybe it'll take the defense production act just like with the with the ventilators I think we'll be able to get American ingenuity working we've you know we we re written the books on how we'll deal with future pandemics that's for sure is is a transformative time but you know as the president pointed out we could a lost two and a half million Americans and and then the latest project she does around sixty thousand but it's sixty thousand too many we lose and I wish we had a cure for everything which we had a cure for the common cold the flu heart disease and every cancer but we make progress every year on all these issues but I'll give you the last word you're exactly right look this country can do anything intense sets it's mine too I believe that and when things are at their worst Americans are at their best I can't tell you how many people we had sixty thousand volunteers from New York and across the country healthcare professionals who said they would come to help in New York during this crisis sixty thousand sure on healthcare professionals by the way that that means they put themselves in harm's way yes yes I mean do incredible so you will get the test done we'll get whatever we have to get done we always go this country is the world leader it always has been if if we fulfill our legacy will continue to be and if we don't let the politics interfere we'll get there even faster you can call the opening of Yankee Stadium and Citi field Hannity's crazy idea everyone wearing a mask and if you take a bite of a hot dog you have one second to take the bite and close it up again I drink your beer from a straw that's gonna suck governor let's but I'll take it to a game you know anyway I'm praying for our state I want this dramatic drop off of those patterns hold we're getting closer to it every day and we're praying for everybody with this including.

"Severity of the corona virus outbreak so it would have time to hoard of medical supplies that's according to a department of homeland security intelligence estimate earlier I went in depth with Betsy Woodruff swan national correspondent for politico what the report found what department of homeland security has concluded is that the Chinese government delayed formally notifying the World Health Organization about how contagious the novel coronavirus was until it had time to begin doing two things first reducing global export of medical supplies and second reaching the level of medical supplies that it was importing and S. D. H. S. report sees a causal link between the decision to shore up domestic stores of medical supplies in China and the decision to delay alerting the World Health Organization informally about just how contagious the new coronavirus wise it looks like China manipulated some trade data as well right what the report says is that the Chinese government combines trade data from January and February of twenty twenty rather than releasing data separately for those two months this is the trade data that's relevant to the medical supplies you try to obfuscate information about what was going on in terms of the purchases and exports of medical supplies that they were making in the existence of a quote from the report and I've got my story is GHS assesses the Chinese government attempted to hide its actions by denying there were export restrictions and obfuscating and delaying provision of X. trade data so one really interesting subplot of this report something it implies that is also drawing attention within the intelligence community and China watchers but just how telling trade data like this can be for the future when the U. S. government maybe trying to assess whether there is a disease outbreak or a pandemic outbreak in another country we now know that if we monitor these import and export numbers really carefully even if perhaps the host government tries to obfuscate them at those numbers could be a leading indicator that something is going wrong and it seems like this report really fits in with the administration's increasingly critical talk about China it certainly feeds that narrative secretary of state Mike Pompeo did interview I believe it was on ABC Sunday morning and he alluded to some of the information that this report highlights that Pompey was also made comments regarding the genesis of the river or in a laboratory and will haunt there's not yet conclusive public evidence that would support that argument although administration officials have speculated about it this report this intelligence report that I read about doesn't touch on the origins novel coronavirus where it came from any of that it's pretty narrowly tailored but of course it's consistent with criticism that the administration is leveling broadly at the way that the Chinese government handled it informed its international and non government partners about the corona virus outbreak that's Betsy Woodruff swan national correspondent for politico for months tens of millions of people have been digitally tracked around the world by government struggling to contain covert nineteen but privacy advocates worry that those short term measures may become permanent this is the thing that worries many hold the extremely intrusive and to Kearney and measures military strategist David Kilcullen says we've seen this before measures that we put in place after nine eleven like the patriot act authorization for the use of military force in Afghanistan and then Iraq and all the travel restrictions in the United TSA and so on and he points out all of those measures as necessary as they were were put in place as temporary and all of which is still in place so whether it's tracking apps stay at home orders limits on gathering sizes places where people can gather Kilcullen hopes it all comes to an end soon JJ green WTOP news a bulk food supplier normally only open to restaurants coffee shops and food service distributors is now open to the public restaurant depot in Alexandria sells bulk.

I didn't know that you are the only African American Republican in the Senate and I I want to know more about your background because I did not know the you had you will grow up without a dad and the story about your dreams being demolished I want you to tell people how are you buddy thank you other roles are how are you yeah don't check lenses hand when you see him do whatever I am I will not he and I are practicing social distancing by doing called together whenever city we're dealing with at all if he's listening he's gonna get mad but I okay go so talk to I want to hear about this yeah well I was raised in a single parent household mired in poverty my mother was a nurse's aide the lowest part of the food chain in the hospital she changed bed pans and flip the patience for sixteen hours a day at least come home and she wanted to bring the life you want her voice to become successful and she always wanted to know wanted us to know that the way forward is work hard work and integrity so she works sixteen hours a day to make sure we have a model in the house of hard work she couldn't get a better job but she wanted to always have a job and that stuck with me and then I I found myself John on the wrong path frankly I was a freshman in high school I was flunking out of high school as a freshman I feel Spanish and English when you fail Spanish and English no one calls you bilingual voice call you by indignant beginning well what we would have been best friends at that time a life because I was horrible but I won't interfere with the great story and so I also filled world geography and civics medics being the study of politics told me god has a sense of humor but I wound up being a United States senator unfortunately after seven years in the Senate I noticed on the last there are a lot of people who are not passing basic civic for our nation I'll say this that my what what turned you around I mean in other words because I don't look at a similar story I mean I was financially independent since I've been ten and I you know when I was twelve years old like come home every Friday Saturday and even Sunday night you know like two in the morning you know flying home from the restaurant I worked on my bicycle having had to same poly girls before I left you are you a we have similar stories that I started working at thirteen years old what turned me around John was two things one the prayers of my mother and me and as a fifteen year old I met a chick fillet operator a guy named John movies and John for some reason took a liking to me his sons and I became friends and he slides with chick fillet sandwich across the concession stand at the movie theater where I was working he started telling me that football entertainment or not the path forward yes you can succeed but I always think of yourself as a business person work for yourself no matter who you're working for those lessons they started to really populate in my heart he started telling me that having a job is a good thing but creating jobs is a better thing space of one day I want you to know the difference between making a profit and having an income when you make a profit you can change communities when you make an income you can always change your life and literally through four years of being a mentor by a small business owner conservative Republican and the Christian he embodied the future I wanted to see in my life he was a white guy by the way and it's part of what you will read about an opportunity not to sometimes we spend so much time on the negative racial history of our country that we forget the positive racial realities of this country my life was transformed by god who saw the content of my character and he forced me to live up to my highest ideals and not just think them but to walk them out he said faith without works James he said adding it's dead exactly our bedroom for a kid that you know was thrown out of church but and are now let me ask you this though why you because my mom was a prison guard work sixteen hour ships our whole life and died out died young because of it in my view but my question that now why was your father not there did he pass away or no look pass got divorced when I was seven years old when he was the Air Force person and and and and a good guy in many ways just he just had some challenges that manifested in the relationship so we moved back to South Carolina in from seven until I was probably twenty three twenty four we had a very strained relationship like that set up I'm good I'm sorry did you eventually patch it up we did it took it took me twenty five years as the to start that process and we are better friends today than at any other point in our in our lives it's a blessing from the good lord to have a second chance a chance at redemption and he and I have been able to become friends where site so close of course yeah that's what I was and I think it's hard I think listen to you know look I I always get in trouble when I say this but I mean you know like moms bring up all of beauty in a love to kids that that no man can offer just the the the thing I don't know but and and not you know it's always my role to be the bad cop that's it I'm the bad guy and you know I keep telling my my kids you know my best friend I don't need a best friend my job is to be your father that's it yeah and when it you know I want to be kind of nice and best friends with them and when they get a little bit older hopefully we're there but until that we got to that point I'm still going to be the father first about the way we got a call from South Carolina wants to talk to you line three euro one senator Tim Scott who's us I don't know if hello this is Lindsey Graham your partner in crime I live in India I get it done so far I'm not don't hate kids I love is that a dog by his books so he'll leave me you hate dogs I mean that's going to go viral tell everybody you're kidding I am kidding well I give you that you're allowed to hate batch you can hate bad stuff got eight Chinese that no I know you guys are very close I mean what can I can tell the story you guys are very very close and sometimes in the Senate you have two senators same state they hate each other that's not the case with you guys Liam is that he's been a blessing to our state and he's an African American Republican and that's no easy thing in this world that one which we live and then fifteen hours here and you know I've heard this story before but have missed this inspiring and you know the Republican Party Flexity having these are great conservative but beyond that they can connect with people at a level that a lot of us can't and I just appreciate him but you know the lender to get bad I'd say it was on the I know you make fun of me Lindsey but Lindsey the event senator and I'm not honestly senior citizens Jonathan senior senator and there will be other than when you got part of the trio which is Trey Gowdy well for a while was a pain in my **** because he wouldn't come on the program I'm like what is up with this guide only got it only go on Hannity when Jason Chafetz was filling in and finally I just started calling him out on air until he finally gave in I talked to him yesterday I told mom on your radio show he loves you know he's a great guy well I listen I you know I don't know I'm for today I honestly I mean I'm think I'm like everybody else I can't wait to get outside go to a restaurant drink a beer in a restaurant have a stake in whole steak house now when when when senator Graham was was being quarantine centre Scott I I literally felt bad for him so I sent over like food for twenty people that I realized he's in isolation the I should have bought I could save a lot of money what I do hello everybody in the neighborhood I'm probably gonna have to now by fill out some Senate former Hannity they're going to they're gonna kill me of trying to bribe a senator when he was in isolation well I'm under fifty dollars the value you sent over Taco Bell so that was fine yeah well whole steak yeah okay they will go along with that story there's no evidence that it I know I'm going to do it all together the stupid as that says the dumbest thing but I if you know your word for a while let me ask you both while I have you both of you are doing a great job can we make a role going forward that any more monies if that's gonna be funny because we we never spent two point two trillion before we never you know opened up four point five trillion loans with the fed police say any more money has to be cold ID related period clean bills only none of this the endowment for the arts humanities this Kennedy center I mean I wouldn't know changing election our immigration laws how about a clean bill and insist on it Republicans unite around at senator Scott one hundred percent one of the things a little bit I have posted on the floor of the Senate we try to find a way to pull back from the craziness brought to the table by the Democrats if you look at the list of pollutants these blunders she wanted not twenty five million for the Kennedy center multiple times more six hundred million for the humanities they drove it down but you are one hundred percent correct we need clean legislation that is temporary and targeted for code red nineteen and nothing else let's see yeah they met a man the first thing we've got to fix it Sean is that him and his colleagues and finance committee came out the small business loans to allow people to part two and a half times our payroll to keep their employees attached.

"State governments and other federal government are flying blind in this corona virus outbreak you're right and so too or a lot of big companies small companies for that matter but a lot of big companies when it comes to dealing with their employees and how their employees deal with the corona virus it is uncharted water for a lot of these companies what do you do if you have an employee that has contracted the corona virus and how that affects other employees particularly in businesses where you have to have a live human beings to operate I would offer this radio station as an example or any of the local television juicy in the greater Cincinnati area as an example you have to have people on the job of getting it done same with fire and police same with people that you have to go to for whatever various government functions you know you have to go you have to go pay a tax bill or something like that if there's not a human being there how do you function and if you work for a company where someone is infected what should that company's policy with regards to you B. it is very very murky and that's why we're lucky to have standing by on the acute hearing centers dot com hotline is a plate of spurs and injury trial lawyer a guy that we had on the show many many times he's a fellow in the invitation only international academy of trial lawyers and he is questioned broadband and he's kind enough to give us some of his time on this Wednesday and questioned how are you on this glorious Wednesday good afternoon Kim thanks for having me back yes I always enjoy having you on now let's talk about the it's virgin territory or at least it seems to be for companies if for example you don't have a policy in place for some sort of you know client some sort of epidemic that goes through your company whether it be this corona virus or other things it seems to me one you're not doing your job and you should have had that in place by now but to let's just say one of your employees comes down with the corona virus how should you as a CEO or as a manager of a company deal with that vis a vis having your other employees on the job well can you know this coronaviruses upended markets and disrupted supply chains of course quarantines we're seeing four main categories of of legal claims suits against businesses that deal with the public captive populations such as nursing homes are cruise ships since by companies for business disruptions Simpson claims against insurers about whether you know coronavirus disruptions are covered by insurance policies and then at your server claims by employees against employers for failing to protect against infected co employees or the public the law has a standard of reasonableness or not to take reasonable measures and OSHA says that as an employer you have to keep your workplace free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm but the devil's in the details and then there are privacy concerns too can I ask my employees whether they have the virus or whether they're cynical is the simple common cold or the flu or indeed coronavirus but you sure as an employer at a minimum be encouraging your employees to self report to self quarantine you should be enabling them to stay home that is easily as you can that may involve paying a sickly were extirpated circumstances beyond those which you normally might so you need to incentivize people to speak up port not to have to show up not to be incentivized to show up with their search in its programs in your other employees or members of the public potentially the corolla well there is there in lies the rub your right the devil's in the details could employer for example tell an employee who might be sick or appears to be sick could he or she be called into the employer's office and told by the employer you'll appear to be sick you appear to have the flu and in in the better interest of this company we want to send you home because we don't want you to infect the rest of our employees does an employer have that leeway and again it's a question of degree you know you can take an extreme example of that if you have an employee who's sneezing in the hallway directly on other employees then I think the balance of interest would be as the employer that you have to protect those employees are being sneezed on I think one of the ways you can mitigate any damages by not doing these things publicly in front of other employees and perhaps erring on the side of paying an employee if you said no please go to the doctor will pay for that pay for your time all incentivizing the employee and not punishing the employee in any way if your erring on the side of safety for your employment in our environment and I know a lot of what I'm talking about here is anecdotal and I apologize for that you're the lawyer on the client but let's just say and a lot of companies are doing this they're telling employees while you work when you work at home just work at home now for this week or next week or others but if they don't offer that to all of their employees could they not be exposed to a possible discrimination lawsuit the employer sure if you have publicly adopted a position that it's reasonable that none of our employees should be exposed to these risks or dangers except for this one the employee and the special circumstance then barring you know special safeguards to protect that employee and that employee could raise an issue about being treated in a in a non similar manner that they are being forced to do our dangers and risks that other employees are not so you know you can ask your can explain you can pay extra you can take extra card you know there are things you can do to try and mitigate any claim but to actually mandate an employee to take an additional list that other employees are not being instructed are asked to take I think could put you in the goal jeopardy credentials yeah a lot of these places and and again I I don't have the companies I only know what I've heard what you've heard perhaps on these cable networks but they're they're not only suggesting that the employees go for forward doctor's visit will pay for the doctor visit or whatever but forcing employees to take a vacation day or personal time off day if the employee is is sneezing as you said but Kathy employee come back and say well I might have been sneezing but a bottom and pepper in the in the break room the Ghana my nose or something like that I would I would think if an employer suggests that the employee you could probably come back and say well who are you to tell me that I'm sick well if you raise an interesting point Canada and us all I think it was yesterday took this morning maybe the news is going so fast now Walmart is paying employees up to two weeks which currently doesn't do in all circumstances at least if they feel the need to take the time off and I think not only does that take care of the employees and send the right message to them and also inoculate potentially the employers such as Walmart about any claim of saying well we want you to go home because the employer even if they're sending you home is still going to pay you for at least up to a two week period and Walmart circumstance so the more proactive you can be as an employer the better care you take of your employees and a less punitive U. R. of those employees if they take time off I think the stronger and firmer ground your video and that's what we're hearing a lot of today out of Washington DC people are confusing this with government bail out it's it's not necessarily that doesn't sound like it but it does sound like one of the things that the trump administration wants to do and its economic stimulus package right now is that if someone does miss work because of the corona virus or the symptoms of the corona virus that if they are sent home they will be paid and I think that's that's infinitely fair rather than just giving money to companies that are having a tough time making a Buck because the market is taking or what whatever else that would go a long way I think and maybe helping some of these corporate these corporations that may not have this in place it would at least ease the burden for them and might alleviate some potential lawsuits would it not numbers of employees to take these ten steps to pay people for two weeks it's of course is a completely different colour for mom and pop bakery restaurant or business to try to do that and indeed they may not be able to sort puts them in a real dilemma and this is one of those times you're right we're at least we should be considering whether we need to do more from the governor Clinton broadens our guest legal expert will give you his contact information here in just a second while you know the lawsuits are going to fly quite no it's it's a it's a given in a situation like this I heard that there's now been at least at this hour three separate lawsuits filed against the the the people that were trapped on I believe three cruise ships that were quarantined for a while I I don't know what the legal jeopardy is for the cruise ship company maybe you could sue them for that all of false imprisonment I don't know but he I mean anything's possible but I I I I I don't I don't necessarily think there would be a case for that on on the people that were on those cruise ships that were quarantine but could there be it's a fact by fact case by case determination and it really depends on a number of things what did the cruise ship operators know before you know when the ship set sail what steps did they take before and during the trip to mitigate against this whole state hi prophetically for instance if they did not know anything and they were taking reasonable steps the ship sailed and before it sailed it makes it much harder but if they knew in advance certain things that should have put them on notice and they didn't take adequate steps then they could be a great legal jeopardy right and and I think there in lies everything that we've been talking about here if you're not if you knowingly as an employer or someone who is a customer if you knowingly put your employee or your customer in jeopardy in harm's way there in lies your legal jeopardy correct that's right and it's getting harder day by day by day for anyone to be able to claim we we hadn't heard of coronavirus we didn't know it was dangerous we know it could injure people and we need to take at least some additional new steps to argue that today given all the news and all the coverage and everything that's been reported would be next to impossible so it's clear that the game has changed new and additional steps need to be taken to comply with you know the standard of care whether you're an employer or business but the question is still being hashed out is exactly what steps where are the lines drawn we're sorting that out even as we speak Clinton brought in you can find him at C.

NYC ninety three point nine FM and AM eight twenty ten your news your conversation today on fresh air Terry gross talks with writer James McBride known for his memoir the color of water his pre civil war novel the good lord bird is being adapted for TV and his new novel D. king King Kong is set in a Brooklyn housing project in nineteen sixty nine like the one he grew up in tune in today at two one nine three point nine FM or ask your smart speaker to play W. NYC and we're back with New York magazine of a particular credit Helen Shaw she's helping us with the reviews and previews of theater happening in and around New York Leman trilogy Helen so this is about Leeman brothers yes it opened on Broadway this weekend it had been off Broadway correct it yes it was at the Park Avenue armory which is this block long me interior where massive shows sometimes happen so this got a raise from The New York Times moves what's your take I I give it two thirds of a race okay and I I a sought and I'm referring now to the Park Avenue armory production obviously I haven't seen a review to yesterday get on Broadway up but it is it is three and a half hours long so gird your loins and it is two thirds of that in some of the finest acting was beautiful production sensitive interesting poetic work really really exciting and then the last third of it which brings the story of women brothers up until the present day is simply flat and and in in my opinion kind of foolish and damaging because it tries to tell the story of the two thousand and eight collapse in a way which we even someone like me who has very little financial understanding I know it's not right that is really dangerous to move us into reality and then to show is a reality we know is untrue and how is it M. in correct for the sake of creativity that what's being said the factual nature is being sacrificed for creative choice I I I don't know I think that Masini the person who wrote the original poem this is in his critique in his pocket the thing is actually a conversion of a poem which while is that he believes that the fact that our economy is built on valuations of things that don't exist is what led us into the two thousand and a collapse which means that he needs to tell a story about personal credit as the thing that leads to Leeman brothers collapse no one ever had a Leeman brothers credit card that doesn't exist that's just wrong and so because that's a process based on his belief system I I wonder if that's what's happening I wonder if that's what's happening and that kind of a yes that that sort of Americans or the American financial system he's an Italian poet the American financial system is based in in on reality becomes his reason for why this collapse happened and you think oh what a lost opportunity it's so much more complicated than that but but look up until that moment it has been one of the great theatrical experiences of my life so the crazy thing is I would send you I would say go I would just say go but no go but go but right at the end you know you might be stroking your chin a little this is as I mentioned you mentioned this is the armory and then to Broadway we've just seen a girl from the north country come to Broadway I have been in the seat really thinking about these things from a journalistic point of view for the past year and a half two years but it seems like the stores are making it to Broadway more quickly than I remember yeah we are using downtown as the as the fast final these days and what the constitution means to me came up from downtown very very quickly hangman was just off Broadway now it's going to be on Broadway sings street was off Broadway forty five seconds ago and it is going to be on Broadway I think we've just started I think those the routing system just seems without a whole lot faster I wonder I just knew gatekeepers perhaps just a I don't know I think yes I think there the second stage getting its own Broadway theatre has been a real values leader actually and so more and more of these kind of nonprofit for profit partnership seems to be happening with with a sort of a quickness but also an easing of confidence that the audiences will come and I think that that's another thing is that audiences sensibilities changed audiences are buying a lot of Haiti's town tickets so maybe the next New York theatre workshop show should go as well that's logic my guess Helen Shaw theatre critic at New York magazine and vulture intimate apparel is the Lynn Nottage play which is being reconfigured opera and that is opening Monday March twenty third what do you think about a plan opera can do for the work operative play played opera you know I am excited about this beyond the bounds of reason because Lynn Nottage hi you know you watch Lynn Nottage shows and they have this size to them at this magnitude and capacity to them at the other place don't have and that sometimes being turned from the page into production on the stage there is a kind of a minimizing the fact that that you think wow hole this is she's putting on a bigger landscape even in this very nice production can give it and I know that she thinks operatic reacting she originally conceived of intimate apparel is a story she might tell through music and so this just feels like the logical next step for this for the way that she writes in the way her mind works Nollywood dreams is running March nineteenth through April twenty six at MCC theater who is the player right behind Nollywood dreams all Jocelyn BO so Jocelyn BO was the one to watch star in the sky thirty under thirty I don't know she's this incredible talent who a lot of us have been watching as an actor and then it turned out that she was also this very gifted playwright she wrote school girls the African mean girls play which got a lot of attention last year also transferred all over the city and MCC has her as their resident playwright and they're bringing her back with this what is the premise of this so it's and this is very exciting from a standpoint of costuming because it's set in the ninety S. and if Jocelyn BO her humor is just is extremely funny when things are set in the nineties I will just say it said in the nineties in Nigeria in as sort of it's sort of a girl comes to the big city will she all about eve the woman who's the Nollywood Harrell and will she fall in love with the sort of gorgeous Nollywood actor it is envisioning one of those hold golden age of Hollywood stories but doing it in the golden age of Nollywood in Nigeria that's kind of exciting uhhuh uhhuh all right your final play you're suggesting is Sierra now it has so you saw this in London already I did I did to tell a obviously is the take on certain diverse rack it's pretty close it's Martin crimp's translation which is it's just you know as an act of translation it's incredibly impressive it is rhyming it is incredibly full of slang the Edmund restaurant the original French guy probably didn't swear quite as much prep has everyone has everyone's where but he uses the fact that it was this beautiful verse drama to convert it into a spoken word hip hop drama and it is the the language that he uses is next level and it is starring James McAvoy it is a fine thing in my opinion it is and I should tell you that during the break things were said about James McEvoy in the studio that I hope will always stay in the studio and you're good for me it is it is it really as he he speaks of his own Scottish accent with this kind of rhythm and fire which is genuinely an unforgettable all right it's great for telling

I'm Caroline Bieler Secretary State. Mike pompeo is on a diplomatic mission to Africa. This week he's visiting Senegal and Gola and Ethiopia the US is looking to counter. The influence of Russia and China across the African continent so development is high on the agenda but so is the growing threat of extremist groups. The F. B. I. Has JUST SET UP. Its First Counterterrorism Task Force In. Kenya. Jeff Porter is the president of North Africa Risk Consulting. I asked him how significant this new joint terrorism task force really is. I think there's a broader shift in policy in the US government to transfer some of the burden of counterterrorism away from US assets whether that's the FBI or the US military and to our foreign partners through US government caused partner capacity building programs the J. TTF that the FBI recently helped establish is going to be staffed by Kenyan government officials and what the FBI is doing is transferring expertise in creating J. TTF's and helping them understand the counter-terrorism process so it should alleviate some of the counterterrorism burden taken on by the United States in east Africa and transfer that to Kenyan counterparts so in addition to the announcement of the Joint Terrorism Task Forces in Kenya. We've got this Report from the Pentagon inspector general came out recently. It says the security situation is deteriorating. Not just in east Africa but also in the Suhel in West Africa. I'm late last year the US Africa Command said that the new military strategy had switched from trying to get rid of these extremist groups to try to contain them from spreading. What is the scope of the threat from these extremist groups right now? What do you make of this new containment strategy? The big question I think being debated right now in Congress and in the Pentagon is to what degree does the growing terrorism threat in West Africa. And the Sahel pose a direct risk to national security interests. And so one of the things that we're seeing play out in real time is policy vacillating back and forth as a reflection of that debate on the one hand. There's the sense that terrorism in West Africa and the Sahel it doesn't pose a real direct threat to the homeland. So you can see shift to a quote unquote containment policy. On the other hand. There is a school of thought which argues that allowing terrorist organizations to jess date in these areas will allow them to eventually pose a direct threat to national security interests. End Behooves the United States to try and get ahead of that. So we're seeing a vacillation in policy and the result is Kinda muddled an incoherent approach to counterterrorism in West Africa and the sad and what about the humanitarian concern? Like what happens in a country like Kenya Fatso? Which until a few years ago was a poor but peaceful country now hundreds of thousands of refugees and lots of people getting killed by extremist groups. I mean how is the United States supposed to assist there? You know we just finished the first decade of Africa Command AFRICOM which was supposed to be a new approach to security issues in Africa. The foundations of African were what they called the three Ds. It was going to be defense. Diplomacy and development ultimately what happened. Was that the defense component of the three days completely dominated the other two and diplomacy and development fell by the wayside. I know it's Cliche but when you're a hammer. Everything looks like a nail and right now. The biggest hammer we have is the Department of Defense which dwarfs the Department of State or USA D. or any of the other agencies that would have the capacity to address the human security issues rather than strictly the terrorism issues. Some people say the. Us is taking resources out of Africa to counter. Russia and China and other parts of the world but my mind goes back to trump's disparaging comments about African countries and I'm just wondering maybe does the White House not really care that much having. I think that's the truth made if you look at the travel ban it. Disproportionately affects African countries Add working in western North Africa over the last twenty years and the US is just not there. You know we're not there and it's astounding to see projects that typically would have been. Us projects infrastructure projects military assistance being done by the Chinese the Russians and the Turks the US is completely absent. There's all this discussion about the grand competition between the United States Russia China and even if that were true that the United States is losing in Africa Jeff Porter the president of North Africa Risk Consulting. Thank you very much. Thanks very much for your time. I really appreciate it in Thailand. Like most places. Snails have long been seen as pests. That ruined crops. But there's a new cosmetics craze in Asia. That's changing the snails reputation. This particular beauty treatment is all about snail slime which now puts these creatures in high demand so much so that a kilo of snail slime powder can be as valuable as a kilo of gold. The World Patrick win tracked down. Thailand's top snail expert to find out more. I'm in a laboratory in Bangkok with a scientist and a snail. And he's how do I put it stimulating? The snail with a little plastic eyedropper manteaux man. That's professor some Suck Baja a biologist. He's these snail Guru in Thailand. Now what she says. It's about to get slippery. All Hen can happen. Mandela minore tell him oh I see it when putting away awhile. It's getting yet. He says shiny slime coming out. This is the stuff people use and by US he means rubbing it all over your face. They say it makes wrinkles disappear that the goofiness makes your skin super soft so I asked what what if I just put a little around is right now but he stops me saying good. How out that? Hyman had no look it would work but my bought pie. We should test for bacteria first. Thailand is snail heaven. It rains a lot. Smells like wet places and of these six hundred species native to the country more than one hundred were discovered by sock and his team at a university called too long gone. This guy he snails he picks one up as big as a tennis ball with the CARAMEL COLORED. Shell and he says to move can have you ever seen a snail's knows it takes me a second to figure out what I'm looking at. Jomo. Noah's Tamika tag up. This song just opens up near the slimy things head and Paul Seitz. That's how it breathes. He says wow. Okay HERE IN INDIANA. Some socks seems like wistful because seeing this for the first time as a young man a snail breathing local meal to move high. Thai food part part in and out in and out with the dead there was thrilling. He says he's been studying them for almost thirty years. He loves it. There's sensitive yes. He says they can feel it when you touch their shell and he loves that. They're both male and female. He loves all of it until recently obsessing over snails was a lonely pursuit but then that's an ad as snail mucus based beauty serum in the last few years across Asia. This has been a huge fat from secretions. Beautifully record. Eighty percent of snail procedure denise we Wesleyan Serum Light It seen as a South Korean thing. Because that's where it. I got really popular but some sock is like wait. Meiteis nails have way better slime. He singled out a few species with really good mucus. That makes your skin bouncy and soft and that helped kick off this craze in Thailand where people in the upcountry now like to harvest snail slime as a side hustle. Getting Cabin Youtube has lots of how to videos like this tie woman feeding rice to Oliver snails. Which live inside old car tires? You can scrape the slime off and sell it to cosmetics factories. Apparently the money can be quite good but some stock says you gotTA scrape a lot of slime to come out ahead one up. Lighting people walk into La and snail can make a lot of slime after all. It leaves sticky trail everywhere it goes but in one day you might be able to extract five cubic centimeters quick math year to fill a pint glass with slime. It would take three months. Some sock himself makes and sells serum and his operation churns out one ton of slime per year. He says and that uses tens of thousands of snails. His company sells a little glass jar of slime for about forty five bucks. Business is good. He says especially now that men have gotten into snail slime beauty treatments to tie. So you're not putting donny men now by more slime than women he says now. I know he loves snails but before I go have to ask. He says the feel every touch right so does all this poking and prodding and mucus collection. Is it torturing them how about you my whole no? He says at a bit of water when you gently scrape the slime and they'll be fine. They may told a mile in Daytona man from Cairo record. India obey says. It's not torture. Okay people who roast them and eat them. That's way more harsh. Yes these same species. He identified as having grey slime people eat them to and just as youtube will teach you how to raise and feed snails. Other videos will show you how to grill them to set low real tasty to percents. I ask the professor if he also thinks that they're tasty alarming. I would know he says I've never eaten one in my life. Just don't have the heart to.

S. and that stands for Middle East respiratory syndrome and as the name suggests it was identified in Saudi Arabia in two thousand twelve and it was believed to have been transferred from yeah you guessed it bats but not to see the cats but to camels and then from the camels to humans but it is unknown even today how that actually occurred we don't now now to date there have been two thousand four hundred and ninety four cases and they're been five eight home sorry there been eight hundred deaths associated with the disease there's been a worldwide reduction of mercy cases and deaths now for both stars and murders there's no cure you need to know that only supportive care to address the symptoms now we have this outbreak it happened this week and this is part of the same family of viruses that gave us sars and murders now this particular virus is quite new it's so new they didn't have a name until today and the name is given given two names will give you two to choose from that you can mark down in your notes and thoughts is either call technically the two thousand nineteen N. cough that's a letter N. as in Nancy C. O. V. with a capital C. there or what I'll be referring to it as going forward the novel coronavirus so it's so new it's novel the novel coronavirus now this stance that I had in preparing for today's program Intel yesterday where these eight hundred and fifty confirmed cases with at least twenty six deaths all of which were in China now since this morning those numbers have completely changed there are now over fourteen hundred confirmed cases with forty one deaths linked to the virus outside of China there are twelve other nations that have reported cases which include these nations Thailand Taiwan Singapore South Korea Japan Macario Hong Kong Vietnam France United States Australia and the Paul as of today the day to day January twenty fifth all the countries I've just stated have only two cases confirmed with the exception of France which has three Singapore three tie one three Thailand five industry reported today for so far it's not clear how dangerous this virus is it is however highly contagious but the death rate is somewhat low compared to the past virus outbreaks is only at three percent not to give you perspective on this the sars outbreak had a death rate of ten percent the murders outbreak had a death rate of thirty five percent and if you remember of course the Ebola outbreak that death rate was twenty five ten ninety percent with an average of fifty percent so as an example in December of two thousand nineteen the Democratic Republic of the Congo had fourteen new Ebola cases reported yeah the total number of cases of the ball reported in that nation total cases reported of all time are three thousand three hundred and sixty two of that number there are two thousand two hundred twenty six deaths that's a fatality rate of sixty six percent now if you go to another country it may be hired eighty or even ninety but the average apparently with the ball as it fifty and all depends on course the nation that you're looking at so right now if I tell you wrap the fish if I tell the tale but tell the right rate to sorry about that that's a tongue twister of any kind is around three percent now those who have died from the novel crow coronavirus seem to be patients who have pre existing conditions and arm mostly older never get to keep in mind that the three percent mark is only what China is stating and we probably know if you're good astute audience member some countries like China are not known to be terribly truthful about its stats and it doesn't help that the sars outbreak also came from China and its handling a report of it of it was not very good now there's another angle that I want to address regard this outbreak so right now this is what the world knows and it is connected to this nation China and I thought to be imported kind of sure what we've learned today so far about it but I also want to give another angle I'm sure the information a FAQ to be changing hourly and daily so all the figures I gave you on what the stats are regarding this virus may be changed by nine o'clock tonight but there's another angle The Washington Times in its generate twenty fourth issue put an article regarding this outbreak here was the title of the article virus hit Wuhan has two laboratories linked to Chinese biological warfare program yes you heard me say that right to laboratories that are linked to a Chinese biological warfare program the article states this quote the deadly animal virus epidemic spreading globally may have originated in a Wuhan laboratory linked to China's covert biological weapons program according to an Israeli biological warfare expert the article continues by stating that China's most advanced virus research laboratory is the Wuhan institute of virology that's V. I. R. O. L. O. G. Y. now Danny show harm who is a former Israeli military intelligence officer with the rank of lieutenant colonel and who holds a doctorate in medical microbiology and from nineteen seventy to nineteen ninety one was the senior analyst with Israel's military intelligence for biological and chemical warfare in the Middle East and worldwide including China has stated officially at the will want institute of archaeology is linked to Beijing's covert biological weapons program he stated certain laboratories in the institute have probably been engage in terms of research and development in Chinese biological weapons at least collateral Lee yet not as principal facility of the Chinese biological were for alignment work on biological weapons is conducted as part of the dual civilian military research and is definitely covert as he says China has denied having any offensive biological weapons however the state department and report last year suspected that China has engaged in covert biological warfare work what is interesting is that the US official that is a U. S. official has stated that false rumors have come out since the outbreak and these false rumors came out when the outbreak began several weeks ago rumors from China stated that the virus was a part of a U. S. conspiracy to spread germ weapons what is concerning about this is that China may have been pre empting a false rumor to create a propaganda cover up of what really is going on in their own biological virus laboratories in other words it may be that this novel coronavirus may have escaped one of their laboratories or has was created there now Denny show him stated in the article that corner viruses have been studied in the institute of war I will hand and are probably held at their end this includes czars H. five N. one influenza virus and other viruses when asked of new core of ours is may have been.

"Outbreak ever in frustration Beaubien has been following this I Jason Hey good morning so eighteen hundred deaths I mean that that sounds tragic just just put this in context for us if you can yeah this is a really bad evil outbreak you know the number of new cases has gone down we're getting about a hundred and twenty hundred twenty six cases a week back in April it's down to only about eighty new cases per week but you know in any other context AT a bowl cases would just on its own be a major outbreak and one of the biggest fears about this has been that this outbreak would spread south to the city of Goma which is this major transportation and commercial hub that two million people right on Lake keep anything up against the border with Rwanda and this week there was a second case that turned up in goal mom this is the guy he'd gotten sick you're being cared for by family members at home and he died yesterday in a clinic but obviously there's concern that some of those people may have gotten infected and this may be spreading in this new city weren't we talking about the world being better prepared to to deal with the ball I mean what why why is a separate gotten so bad yeah after the West Africa outbreak there was this sense that you know we're in much better shape we know more about it we've got new treatment options with that a vaccine and that's out there but in this one it really has been this perfect storm the area that this occurred in is incredibly poor that had poor ill healthcare infrastructure beforehand it's incredibly volatile is these militias that have basically been running at that part of the Democratic Republic of Congo for decades there vying for control of minerals and you know they have really undermined any governmental institutions that that that would be there and then all these healthcare workers show up to try to contain the ball at treatment unit the goal of all up you know outbreak and some of them were attacked even killed the World Health Organization yesterday was saying the document of the hundred ninety eight attacks on a bowl of clinics and workers over the last year so obviously that's an incredibly high number for a tax on health response you know even you know even in that declared war zone yeah what I mean yeah it is a workable why why attacks specifically attack clinics that but you know we're treating a disease because there's just these incredibly high levels of distrust of outsiders that is this is merry that's fifteen hundred miles away from Kinshasa some people think that this is a hoax of some kind and then when the presidential elections were occurring last year they basically cancelled the balloting only in the areas where the ball it was spreading further leading to more people feeling like this is some sort of political scandal I use this and jealousy about jobs going to some people and not others I hear there's just a lot of issues that have made this a really difficult social situation as difficult as it is I mean you mentioned there were lessons from the West Africa outbreak are we seeing those lessons play out in any way here absolutely we are I did just new treatments that are being tested that are being used people getting access to them and probably the biggest issue is that there's now a vaccine and it has been widely used about two hundred thousand people have gotten this vaccine that people say it's very effective and people say this is kept this from being an explosive outbreak like we had in West Africa in pairs Jason Beaubien Jason thank you reporting you're welcome when Democrats debated in Detroit last night it was an advertisement for the candidates and for their party so what are the intended audience think we have responses this morning from two cities beginning with Christopher Connelly of K.
