How the Pandemic Transformed a Small Diagnostics Company

"Joining us. Thank you for having me. We're gonna talk about longhorn vaccines and diagnostics. Covert one thousand nine hundred and how the pandemic has transformed your company. My guess is most of our listeners will not be familiar with longhorn which is long been focused on addressing infectious diseases in developing economies. What was longhorn founded to do. And what has its business been through two thousand. Nineteen longhorn was founded to address a coming influenza pandemic We started the company in two thousand and six looking for ways to develop a better diagnostics and vaccine products for preparing for an infectious disease outbreak With the expectation that that coming pandemic would be influenza. We originally had our current diagnostic products available for the two thousand nine. Two thousand ten h one n one o-9 pandemic. We were one of thirteen companies that received an e you way back during that pandemic much compared to the hundreds that have received as during this e way is emergency use authorization. That's correct up until about two nine months ago. I don't think most people knew what that was. I don't think many people in the industry or even at the fda knew what that was. And i think now it's something that has been a critical component to developing tests. And now vaccines for this pandemic. when the covid nineteen pandemic emerged. What were the internal discussions at longhorn. What needs did you see. And what opportunities you think there were for longhorn to address. Well we knew that our product would be on an important product. This pandemic One of the things that we had taken to the us fda in two thousand sixteen was this product that could collect samples and inactivate all of the viruses and bacteria and other pathogens immediately upon collection. So that there was no concern about spreading the virus through The transmission of the tubes and to make it safer for the laboratory people as well so as we saw how infectious virus was and and how much it was putting people in the hospitals and ultimately causing death What we realized was that this was really the moment in time that that this novel product that we created and that the fda had approved two years earlier really this was. It's it's key moment in time and we were surprised that the fda actually reached out to us In january and asked us to begin ramping up production and they wanted to ensure that we also realize that what they saw which was the distribution crucial product in helping expand testing across the country are current diagnostic products available for the two thousand nine two thousand ten h one n one. Oh nine pandemic. We were one of thirteen companies that received e way back during that pandemic much compared to the hundreds that have received e- ways during this. That's correct up until about nine months ago. I don't think most people knew what that was. I don't even think many people in the industry or even at the fda knew what that was. And i think now it's something that has been a critical component to developing tests and now vaccines for This pandemic you've long thought about ways to address issues in emerging economies. You've developed some breakthrough technologies to do just that have these had implications for addressing pandemic in a developed economy as well. Well we knew that our product would be unimportant product for this pandemic One of the things that we had taken to the us fda in two thousand sixteen was this product that could collect samples and inactivate all the viruses and bacteria and other pathogens immediately upon collection.

Biden's Econ Plan: 3 Indicators To Watch

Biden's Econ Plan: 3 Indicators To Watch

"Okay three questions about the biden. Economic agenda question one will the us labor market get back to where it was before the pandemic the indicator will be watching to answer. This question is simple. Three point five percent. That was the unemployment rate about a year ago right before the brutal covid recession. And it's easy to forget now because it seems so long ago but that three point five percent unemployment rate was the lowest unemployment rate in half a century but now the unemployment rate is six point seven percent and the labor market is actually worse than even that number implies because the unemployment rate doesn't count people who have given up looking for jobs either because they had to stay home to take care of kids or relatives or because they got discouraged and hopefully a lot of those people will start looking for jobs and getting them in the coming months and years as the economy reopened and if the unemployment rate can get back down close to three point five percent again or maybe even lower than that it will be a sign that the labor market has recovered. And there's a lot riding on this. A strong job market leads to other favorable trends for example before the pandemic households of all incomes and backgrounds including all racial and ethnic backgrounds were getting raises decent raises income inequality was falling as a matter of fact and the poverty rate had gone down for five straight years. That's all largely the result of a tight labor market a strong labor market. And so. that is the question that we're going to be asking questions. Will the labor market make a comeback question number two. how much will the biden administration reverse. Parts of the trump economic agenda there are a couple of different indicators that we will be paying attention to first up taxes yes remember. Before the pandemic the most significant economic legislation that was passed during the trump ears was the tax cuts and jobs act which had been passed at the end of twenty seventeen and there was a lot in that bill but maybe the most important part was a big cut in the tax rate paid by american corporations yes so the corporate tax rate went from about thirty five percent of the money corporations made each year all the way down to twenty one percent. That was a major overhaul of the tax code. So that is the number that we are going to be following because president biden campaigned on raising the corporate tax. Not all the way back to where it was before. President trump took office. But you know higher than it is now the other indicator. We're going to be watching to see how much the biden agenda undoes. The trump agenda is about the trade war with china. The trump administration raise the average tariff on chinese imports to the us from about three percent to more than nineteen percent last year. Will those terrorists go back down. That's the question we're asking and the answer is not necessarily or at least not immediately for now. President biden has only said that he is going to consult with allies other countries in europe and asia about how to deal with china and keep in mind that right now actually is still a lot of bipartisan support. In the us to continue being tough on china and china itself is viewed very unfavourably in a lot of countries that are allied with the us that's largely because these countries believed that china did a bad job of handling the outbreak of corona virus which originated in china before spreading out so there is a chance that the trade war with china will continue and an easy way to see if it does is to follow the average tariffs on chinese imports and check to see if they stay roughly where they are and finally question three. How much money will the federal government as part of the biden agenda so far the biden administration is communicating. That is comfortable borrowing more money through the treasury market to finance. Its spending plans. And here's one of the arguments that the biden administration is making it saying that now is actually an appropriate time for the government to be borrowing more money in order to provide economic stimulus investments for example. Here's janet yellen. President biden's pick for treasury secretary during her confirmation hearing on tuesday but right now with interest rates to restorick lows. The smartest thing we can do is act big. Here's what janet yellen means because interest rates are so low yellen arguing that it is cheap for the government to payback that debt so that the government should borrow money now to boost the economy. The national debt. Going up there for at least for a little while won't be a sign of failure to the biden administration. It'll just be a sign that it is pursuing its goals. So here's the indicator we're going to be watching the national debt to gdp ratio this ratio compares the amount of money that the government owes to the value of everything the economy produces in a single year during the trump. Here's the national debt to gdp ratio has gone up from roughly seventy five percent to where it is now which is close to one hundred percent into big amount of the rise in the debt was because of the money that was spent in response to the covert recession but even so that is the highest amount of debt as a share of the economy since just after the second world war. And here's why we'll be watching the national debt to gdp ratio closely. There has been a fascinating debate within economics in recent years. A lot of economists have become more comfortable with the federal government running up higher debts saying it is not as dangerous as economists once believed but other economists disagree they worry for example that running up too much debt will lead to much higher inflation or that it will lead to interest rates going way up if the investors lend money to the government. Start getting nervous and with the national debt now forecasted to go higher than it's ever been as a share of the economy. We're going to get a chance to find out who's right so either way it's going to be a fascinating experiment to watch and that is what we plan to do. We'll be watching. Feel free

Of course, we're certainly looking for any signals at to see if that that would be emerging. Dr Charles to was a virologist in professor of laboratory medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. He said. Tests show the new strain made up about 4% of samples back in mid December, Chu said the data is incomplete and more work needs to be done. He said. It indicated officials are concerned about whether the vaccines will be as effective against the variant. There is some worry that this this is one of those variants that because it's in the very critical region of the virus called the spike Protein, and then the binding site they receptor binding domain of the spike protein there is with with all mutations in that particular region. There is a concern that is there in Will there be an effect or is there an effect on the vaccine? Choose that The variant was first identified in Alameda County last May. He said, along with Santa Clara, the new strain has turned up and other urban counties such a San Francisco and more rural counties like Mono and Lake. State Health officials are working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, local public health departments and laboratory sequencing partners.

It did allow china then bounce back in a rather rapid way when it had managed to control virus outbreaks across the country now expectations for growth to continue this year but there are some potential headwinds. Yeah absolutely and we've seen a new outbreak. Outside of beijing and government officials. There have been quick to act again. This is one of the key data. Points that i think is worth pointing out victoria. Even though we did see growth what we also saw. Were we expected retail sales figures. What that underlines is nervousness amongst chinese consumers. Because they're not quite sure what this year is going to be like the trade spat and the new administration.

China Bars Entry to 2 Members of W.H.O. Team Investigating Covid in Wuhan

"Scientific investigators from the World Health Organization have finally been given permission by the Chinese government to search for the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus. Here's Jim Rupe. It was last week that wh o Director general, Dr Ted Rose and not Gabriel ASIS expressed his frustration at China for reversing his permission for investigators to hit the ground in Wuhan. I'm very disappointed with this news, given that two members had already begun their journeys and others were not able to travel at the last minute. But Thursday after a call from Dr Ted Rose, Chinese officials granted permission for the team to enter Wuhan. Life in Wuhan, we're told is relatively back to normal, the north of the country. There is a resurgence of the virus. China has assisted for months that just because Wuhan is where the first cluster of cases were discovered, does not necessarily mean Wuhan is ground zero for the outbreak. The suspicion is by scientists, however. That the virus that has killed nearly two million people worldwide at this point since 2019 jump from a bad to an animal to human somewhere in the country, Southwest Chinese officials maintain the virus most likely came from abroad, perhaps an infected seafood. Tho. Scientists reject that. The team includes scientists and virus experts from the US, the UK, Australia, Germany, Japan, Russia, the Netherlands, guitar and Vietnam, all anxious to get their hands microscopes, probes and Petri dishes in defining the root cause the host animal, the animal that caught the virus from the bed and, in turn infected the human And where that happened.

Public officials charged in Flint water crisis, allegations

"The former governor of Michigan pleaded not guilty today to two charges of willful neglect of duty nearly seven years after lead, contaminated water killed 12 people and sickened Many more in Flint. Rick Snyder is one of at least nine public officials facing criminal charges related to the water crisis that began after the city switched its water supply in 2014. Steve Carmody is a reporter for Michigan radio. He's been following this, Steve explain what it all means, who's been charged? What are they facing? Well the governor is facing as she said, two counts. They're two misdemeanor counts, and that's Very much. The least important charges filed there a couple members of former senior State Health Department officials who are facing nine counts of involuntary manslaughter. That's tied to the Legionnaire's disease outbreak, which occurred at the same time as the Flint water switch, and some experts believe was caused by the switch in Flint's water. There are also some other people close to the former governor man who was his chief fixer. Is charged with perjury and extortion. Both of those felonies so there are quite a few charges and we'll learn more about what the bases for those charges are as these criminal cases continue. Well, this was such a devastating event for Flint, and they've been dealing with the fall out. For years. You've been hearing from residents, here's Montana's Edwards. Made it hard on people who stay here and he just go out in the sunset. No, we want we want justice what he did. Sounds like he's not happy with those misdemeanor charges. What else are we hearing? A lot of people aren't happy with those misdemeanor charges there. You know. This has been seven years in the making since the city's water source was switched by the emergency managers appointed by Governor Snyder to run the city of Flint. And people have been wanting justice. They have wanted someone to have charges brought against them, and they're they're tired of waiting. And when they see that the governor who has been their main target of you know, the P person they wanted most to see criminally charged is on Lee being charged with misdemeanors. They're very disappointed in that. Will. Snyder's attorney says the charges were part of a politically motivated smear campaign. And this is pretty unusual to have AH former governor charge like this one of the political implications. Well, this is the first time in the history of the state of Michigan So we're talking 180 years since a former governor was charged with crimes connected to when they were in office. So this is a very rare event, obviously in the state of Michigan, and this is a criminal charge brought against a former Republican governor under a Democrat attorney general. So there have been allegations raised that this may have been somewhat politically motivated. We'll see how it plays out in court. Of Comedy reporter for Michigan Radio. Thank you very much. You're welcome.

"I I'm GonNa take him seriously and I can't take this film seriously so I think any relevance that you'll find in this because we're living through these times right now so that made me actually play around with the recommend for this but it's too damn silly for me. It's Red Arrow not recommend stewart. Yeah it actually breaks my heart that the people are turning to this that in times of coverted. They're saying okay. This movie has something that speaks to our moment and then they get this. Zucker brothers comedy that is like a disaster movie parody like it doesn't have anything to say about viruses whatsoever. It's making hash of that. What we should be afraid of our helicopter chases and evil military people that are going to drop bombs on common man and it's frustrating. It's frustrating that up to this point. We haven't had a really great movie about viruses a subject. I really care about and casting. Dustin Hoffman and Arnold Schwarzenegger Parts is Worse Than Satan Bug. I'm actually GonNa say this is the worst film in the series so far at so wrongheaded. Wrong ACTOR. Wrong hero wrong movie. My advice dropped that. Bomb and incinerate outbreak. It's going take a big piece of your soul. I did not see the movie. You did Stewart but I definitely saw the movie. Jacob saw because throughout the first two thirds. Three quarters of this movie the first sixty to ninety minutes. I'm seeing reality hyper reality reality. But I've seeing the Cova crisis play out on screen. Especially once it becomes airborne I'm seeing some hammy performances but I like the fact that we have a CDC guy as the hero a smart hero in Hollywood films. A scientist you know. It's it's something Arnold couldn't believably play and Dustin Hoffman. Could and I think Dustin Hoffman's doing a pretty decent job. I mean we talked about. Who's in this cast? We haven't discussed their performances. But they're all pretty solid Morgan. Freeman's doing what Morgan Freeman. Does Dustin Hoffman other than the deep fucking Shit type speech. He's pulling it off until they steal the helicopter but I believe him as the virologist anti believe him as the divorced man. I'm confused by that name. A scene where he really nails it named like one moment. Where wow. He was really good to scenes both with Morgan Freeman. The first is that Morgan Freeman's party where he's like. Let's put out an alert and really emphatic. About it. But chagrined about the Times. He's cried wolf and then the other time is in mortgage agreements office. Where he's like. I want to go investigate to see if we have Matab in the states in Boston. And you're sending me off to some really boring thing. Why are you doing that? Those two scenes I was really with the character. I don't feel like he deserves a statue. I don't believe he was stretching terribly but I think he was good in the role. As was Morgan Freeman. Donald Sutherland was a little silly in his wickedness. But that's why you cast Donald Sutherland. Coup gooding junior was very good as the novice military guy. Who's getting into virology and Rene Russo? I thought she carried herself very well with authority in this film. I like this cast and I liked what they were investigating and I was scared of Mujtaba and I was scared of our government because we are right now. Walking a fine line art as of this recording today. Our attorney general said that they can't guarantee that what's going on with stay at home waters. Isn't violating the Constitution and we have people taking to the streets to protest that this is where Jacob you and I differ because you say you find it ridiculous when the military shooting people for trying to leave town. I find that all possible so I'm not laughing at that point in the movie. I'm frightened at that point in the movie. Come on you gotTA turn off. The Alex Jones Shit happens with our government. You can't trust big government. We can't trust stupid people that are GonNa go and spread this either. No no there's stupid people on both sides if I may paraphrase but as I've mentioned the moment it decides to turn into a full fledged action film with Stupidity After Stupidity. Kevin Spacey Rips Suit. Oops I'm not going to tell anyone. I got the willies. And then Rene Russo. Who had been so competent slips and pokes herself with a hypodermic needle. I have worked in hospitals. That is a very rare occurrence and should be better trained than that given their job. I mean he was having a seizure. I mean that's how they explain it and nurses and doctors deal with people having seizures every single day and there's not always a sharps accident. She does say she wasn't as careful as she should have been. Which I feel is unfair to her and her character. Everyone in the movie should be saying that and it turns her into a Damsel in distress. She had been a strong female character. Who becomes a Damsel in distress like sleeping beauty? Dying on the bed for the last part of this movie so it really falls too deep fucking Shit. So is it a recommend or is it not? I'm going to eke it over to the side of week recommend because I really feel the I two thirds of. Its speak to our time. Wow a recommend for this movie Yes. I'm dumbfounded I would watch any of Satan bug has more to say about our time than this movie. This movie is ridiculous. I think it actually really hit home with me in many different ways. You didn't like it back in the nineties. I think that's interesting. I can't remember if I liked it or not. I was thinking of fear and Congo. Okay well again. There was. There was a lot not like about all. This movie has the tropes of Ninety s action movie again if they made a movie about teachers. It's dangerous minds. And she's a marine and beating people into their education. It just had hyper since of to engage with the subject matter and so yeah they were GonNa make a virus movie they were. GonNa make this soukup ridiculous. Helium filled nonsense that just aesthetically. I don't like and it sounds like I think we always wind up on different sides of that line. Where you're like. I like hyper realism. I like Hollywood speak. I don't so I think your tolerance to that is how much bullshit you can take out break. Let's be clear. I really had a debate on if this was a recommend or not. I really did. It's not a movie I love. It's barely take it overtaken or leave us. You know so. Let no one think that my endorsement here is a ringing endorsement. It's just I feel like the first two thirds outweighs the stupid at well. I'm confident we still have a movie in the series. That will speak to our times and we'll get there. I haven't seen the one next week. Ridley Scotch is finally going to make us virus thing or at least going to produce it for television and drama. Strain two thousand eight. Is it more Ridley or more Tony? They're both doing this one. Yeah I don't know that either is really that responsible again? A Michael CRICHTON book. We've seen it before television directors but who knows. I did think that there were things about the original drama strain. That could definitely improved by update. And so. Maybe they've done it. We'll find out next week in the meantime this Friday. If you are one of our supporters we have a different type of serum for you one that's mixed with a little bit of vodka and rum and poetry. It's Tom Cruise's.

"What a different movie were in. Because I enjoyed the lab science. I enjoyed the research the tracking of where went in the fact that it went airborne. I enjoyed coup gooding working with that and seeing what Martin had the one. A one cured that monkey but it only cured strain one. I'm liking all of this. The moment Donald Sutherland decides he's going to be capital e evil and tried to bomb a town and kill. Dustin Hoffman. Is where this is just. It loses everything. It's amazing the same movie. We don't need chopper fighting. This is not top gun. You don't need to go there. Hollywood just has this anxiety that if you don't put a chase scene in then somehow will be bored and the lost and they won't connect and it's like no these chase scenes are what's ruining your movie. You have a bola you can sit with that and eat out on that every night because it's super fucking scary. You don't need to do all of this other drama about the military like making the military. The bad guy was probably the worst creative decision of a series of bad decisions. Yeah I mean I like the instinct of let's have a human villain here. Let's have somebody working against Jack Pallets. You need an antagonised that is not an invisible germ you know. But they went too far with it with the level of evilness and cover-ups and the biological warfare is completely believable. But trying to shoot down a friendly military chopper in. Us airspace is completely ridiculous yet. Almost gone with okay. We're GONNA still a chopper. So he could go find out. Who's carrying this disease where it started from? But the fact that they're gonNA like fake a crash landing by shooting some people and there is a full on chase like. I'm waiting for them to invert. In Top gun and flip. It feels like that can happen in this movie. It is that movies the mentality I mean. That's what they are aiming for. They feel like it's the same audiences top gun and how sad how sad for all of the research and an all of the good science that was informing the movie. They were trying to make that. They're like yeah in the end. We just gotTa have a dumb action movie. Because that's what people like and I just feel like there have been movies to prove that wrong. I'm we're GONNA talk about. I think we're building up to the best viral outbreak movie. There ever was but we gotta wait a couple of weeks it can be popular and done well and made for adults and you don't have to have all this monkey business quite literal monkey business think it make scientists look cool. Maybe this will encourage to get a science degree. No that's the it's the opposite. It makes it look foolish and stupid. It you might as well have Arnold Schwarzenegger as your molecular biologist. Like that's just not anything that looks like science right but it might fool kids into getting degrees. It's not cool. It's also not a good chasing. Can we agree that these are that? I don't care whether they get back or not that I kind of want everyone to to drop dead and bleed from the face because it just the pain they've caused me is terrible. This is not an affects movie. It's not an effects driven movie. And that shows every time they try in effect. The Don't put helicopter chasing it because the worst is Dustin Hoffman on a sound stage pretending to jump onto a boat but all of this helicopter stuff with them is Starsky and Hutch level bad rear projection. And I'm just going to say I've always kind of had this problem with Director Wolfgang Petersen but he had a long career people let him do this all the time and I never liked any of his movies perfect storm the Poseidon Adventure Remake. People even liked in the line of fire. I always thought that when we'll be wasn't very credible I didn't see Air Force One but I hear it's just one people like I looked up. This director and I was shocked that I'd seen most of his American films. I mean he's done a lot of foreign films but never ending story. I liked enemy mine. I liked shattered. I liked you. Don't like them now. I haven't seen them in years. I haven't seen it reminds since it's like Oh four. I liked it in. Oh four I liked it in eighty five when it came out. I mean in the line of fire elect back then outbreak air force. One is probably his crowning jewel. The perfect storm. I even liked this terrible film again. These are so stupid and they all suffer from this logic problem. Well the problem with the perfect storm is I liked it when I thought it was a true story that I got home and found out. It was completely fictional story based on real events and I felt cheated but in theaters watching it. I liked it but I think the man had like one hit. It was dos boot. People dined out on that film for decades. And I think it's a language problem. I think that he just doesn't pay attention like now that he's not making films in German like the dialogue just whatever and this is how. Americans like hear dialogue in their movies. So I'm not GonNa have good writing and you just have this again. I don't think it's a bola that's making my ears bleed. I think it's just awful awful writing. Yeah it feels like very Roland Emmerich to me ask. These do very similar films. Yes it is reminded me of like the day after tomorrow in that level of the earth is ending and we have to do a chase a disaster film the Classic Irwin Allen. I mean those can be kind of fun if we're encouraged to laugh but again this guy we're expected to take seriously come on and the fact that he's just going to plead with the bombers. Don't bomb the town. Don't follow orders now. Admittedly he's kind of going with Nazi Germany. Don't be those people who just follow orders. You know because the Nazis always said we were just following orders but at a certain point it's the president who said bomb this town. It wasn't Donald Sutherland. Who said bomb this town? He didn't know the facts that gets clarified. Often has a very long speech where he didn't know the facts because we have a cure. The point is Dustin Hoffman. Runs back and takes the monkey blood and throws it in the one one one and suddenly they can now fix the problem. I love how fast that is. We're told his eighteen months before corona. It's eighteen minutes for this. And here's the thing. We just reviewed recently Dr Strangelove where you have all these protocols. If you want to call those planes back you gotTa have a secret code like I am on the military side during this ending. I'm like no I don't want someone to be able to hack into the radio system and just talk someone out of mission that's been authorized by all the higher ups like this is crazy that you would just give up because someone on their Ham. Radio told you. Hey really do have a vaccine down here. We can't don't drop that bomb. I guess my Libertarian. Instincts clashed with you Jacob. Because I want somebody to be able to tell people don't bomb friendly's on local soil incinerate center in you incinerate a big piece of the American soul. I mean that line right there. I'm like where are you so I can drop the bomb on your face the screenwriter? Yeah it is really bad here. And I'm clock watching at the end. Is it worse than Andromeda strain? I can't say so. Yes because it's forty minutes long of silliness instead of five minutes. I mean come on. Yeah and even the dramas strains worst okay. It had like a silly set that we're supposed to believe this little laser beam a little silly but I at least understood why it had a self destruct feature but didn't understand why it had lasers to shoot animal one detail. If this movie had only one logic problem I probably wouldn't even bring it up. This is just what about this? Feels true this point? What about this threat and what we've just seen feels any different from a Van. Damme seagal movie. It doesn't have any credibility as something that could happen in real life and we're living in these times. I feel like for the first three quarters of the movie until Dustin Hoffman steals a helicopter. I feel like everything is completely believable. I feel like there's moments of believability in a lot of silliness. But they dropped the bomb over the ocean and Morgan. Freeman finally grows a pair. I don't think he was ever on board with what happened. In Zaire in the sixties he finally grows a pair and has one of the men arrest Donald Sutherland. And because that was what this movie was about like her tailing Sutherland. Just whatever have ever arrested Kissinger for bombing Cambodia. Like we've done all this kind of stuff. I don't even feel like this is a crime. They go after Sutherland. Four well trying to shoot down the chopper with Kouba and Dustin. Hoffman is probably recruit an old stolen. I feel like he's going to get off in the trial maybe so but he might have to retire with honors. But Will Sam get back with Roberta? That's the question we're left with that he again. He'd like took office. He's really confident in this cure like we haven't had one subject recover and he's like rip off his helmet and giving her a kiss he's the lead virologist he knows But yeah she. It's an instinct cure to. There's not like two weeks of recovery. It's just instant. Oh I'm better now it's a Hollywood ending. It's a Hollywood film. It sure is but how do you guys feel about this Hollywood Virus Jacob? Stewart's do you recommend this outbreak. Jacob like I said earlier I think a lot of the things I found interesting is because we're living through right now like movie theaters are scary thing right now but this film takes it to a very silly place. The way they played out and quarantining people and tell him to stay at home and you. You can't travel like that's a very real thing right now. And then they kind of go to the silly place with a helicopter blowing up a truck people trying to escape. I feel like that. Is this movie in a nutshell. Like here's a very real scary thing and then we're going to go to the most ridiculous blockbuster Hollywood thing and and again blockbuster Hollywood's not necessarily bad but the scary things they don't focus on paranoid with those around you. Who has this virus that you can't see? I mean this movie starts off with this quote you know about viruses being the biggest threat to human dominance like the think of this microscopic thing. And that's what's GONNA take us down. But it doesn't want to do anything with very scary premise. That is based in real life and it goes and such ridiculous places. Yeah you should have thrown arnold here instead of Offman because Dustin Hoffman outside of Pirate Wig Liking Hook..

"Just have to assume the entire town has it. Yeah it's hilarious this. There's a put a white flag on your door in the military will come and get at you and take you to the hospital. This mother and wife you're saying abide or her family. It's supposed to be very careful but like that whole family house at the military should be taken that old family. They're all inside this very contagious. They don't know that they don't know that it's airborne it will be. Dustin Hoffman to crack that riddle. We'll get to it in just a second. You see how many white flags or on the doors. Everyone has it in this town. They should've been onto it. It's the town of like I think two thousand six hundred and eighteen so very very low numbers and again they think by surrounding the perimeter. Even if everyone has it. What'S THE BIG DEAL? We have it contained. They don't know that it can blow past their borders. They don't know that they should be wearing protective gear as well but the other thing to keep in mind is Morgan Freeman and Donald. Sutherland are evil. You know like they are wanting to protect the line that gets used is. They're wanting to protect their knowledge of this virus so much that they are willing to let people. I and I think what what ends up getting told. We see Morgan Freeman walk into a freezer full of e one. One one they have sort of a cure or something the start of cure. Yeah but at the same time they. It sounds to me like they wanted to get to the idea that our government does. Bhai weapons under the table. They do something to tease it. But I get the sense that part of the reason why we should really judge what the military is doing is because we know they don't care about human lives and they want to not only see all these people as expendable but they also want to use this virus to their advantage at some point against enemies of the US. Yeah we'll see that you know it is shoot to kill Rehab some people that tried to flee the town and these two trucks in the military runs. This is hilarious to me. Like supposed to take the series like. Oh my gosh. The military going to shoot its own citizens to keep this contained. It plays out funny to me. When you get this whole chase. I took it very serious because again. It looked like a couple of the protesters in that truck. Taking potshots at military helicopter and the military helicopters shoots them like Ed to nine in. A board room shoots the one with all adults. The one with the family they stopped they get a live. They're not going to kill the kids. They're not stupid enough to fire at a helicopter. I'm so let's just get down to brass tacks. Let's get down to numbers. People are already doing it. I know I may come off as callous. But we're talking about two thousand Americans versus the whole rest of the world right like they have maps that say you know in forty eight hours. It's going to be in all the lower forty eight states and we need to just do something now. Clinton is where on this like. He's we don't ever seen anyone playing bill. Clinton we see Secretary of state and may not even be Bill Clinton. No no his. His picture is up. We can see it in certain offices. Is it yes definitely is but we don't see anyone from his administration. We don't see in one playing him. We see a secretary of state scream. We've got to have every oncein onto the idea that we're GONNA bomb this town. But that's obviously the answer and the president will have his answer in twenty hours which. I'm like if it's going to take forty eight hours to be everywhere. That seems really delayed like a really bad response to an outbreak that they should be making the decision. Now there should be no opportunity for Dustin Hoffman and Rene Russo to come to this town because obviously this is the decision that needs to be made. I took it as if it escaped. It would take forty eight hours. Not that is so airborne is going to fly out of that town. They could leave. That down quarantined as long as they can. Keep them in there and it's not going to spread but if somebody were to get out of town. I don't know gets involved happening the wind's GonNa blow the virus and mother. Nature will kill us all animals again. Are they quarantined? The squirrels everything can be infected. They don't know if they're carriers. We just assume if monkeys are any thing else can be. They're not doing a very good. I wouldn't assume that and again. No one is wearing masks. That's in the military. It's but the point. Is they find out it's airborne wants. Dustin Hoffman gets in there and he's solving medical riddles. This is what I really love about in drama strain. This is where I always want. The movies to live is that we see the scientists use their brain to figure out stuff here it only gets as good as well. This patient's been in isolation for weeks from a car accident. How could they get it and then they do that shot of it spiraling up the air doctrine going the other room? This is the best sector worker and get like how they find the monkey how they find. Yeah that it is a monkey. It is hilariously bad. How they find. It's a monkey is a problem for me because we get that it's airborne at this point and they're still trying to figure out where it came from and they're tracking it back the track it to a pet store and they're able to figure out it's a small animal but they don't know what kind and then immediately Sam. The Dustin Hoffman character. Says we need to find that chimp. When did he find out? It was a champ. They literally just said they don't know the animal. There is another monkey at the pet store. That six so the assume it's a monkey carrying it because only monkeys can infect other monkeys if they had said that other animals are not getting sick. I guess you could make that leap of logic. I didn't hear that but maybe again. That's not my biggest problem here. What I love is eventually. They're going to get to the boat and the original original guy was taking like before there was instagram. He was taking polaroid of me and my monkey like eating together hanging out on the ship together. How did that? How did everyone on that boat? Not so wouldn't that she's going to wipe out America and forty eight hours but everyone this again. We've seen real life. Studies of cruise ships and naval ships outbreaks. Doesn't stay with one person that's if it's airborne and this is not airborne so unless somebody's swapping spit with this guy and sharing. A cookie never shared his bananas with anyone come. He shared it with the Monkey. And maybe the others were smart enough to be like. I ain't eaten after no monkey. I don't buy. It is strange to me that he is self Yang with a monkey that he literally is smuggling just for profit. It's not like this was his decides sell. Yeah and that the jump of logic is that Oh that must mean this is the monkey. That's the monkey we're looking for and thank goodness. It's visiting a little girl every night. That's doing krant drawings of it. In the meantime Kevin Spacey needs to die. Because you know we need. We need one of the major characters to be wiped out and he's so annoying like we almost don't mind he's almost not even a major character to. I can't think of a single useful thing. He does in this movie other than I again. You're missing the obvious. He was supposed to have all the one liners. That had the common people rolling in the eyes rolling in the aisles. I was rolling in the ice but as far as this investigation goes he was useless and the only thing he did actually was at one point. Dustin Hoffman so worried about his divorce in his dogs. He's about to enter the level for lab and didn't even check his suit for tears and Kevin Spacey's like Oh you tear and duct tapes it. They never checked the rest of the suit. But Yeah wouldn't you change your suit instead of just duct tape it again. This was a major moment in the hot zone. One of the major characters ended up. She was cooking thanksgiving. Dinner had a nick on her finger and then had to go into the lab and gets a tear in her suit. And Oh my God knowing that could actually have gotten all the way inside her body it was a very scary moment not replicated as well here again ends up coming up kind of stupid like A. I don't know what we're supposed to get out of this he lies. He covers up the fact that he got the tear in the suit. Because I guess he doesn't want to deal with it but ultimately his seizure will ultimately cause Rene Russo to prick herself with the Hypo and that's what we really care about not well. I think they're on the man's right. Are we to get the idea that working on this case is making their divorce not happen? That's how every Hollywood movie is right. You know I can't tell if the movie's telling me that or if I'm just assuming it because it is a Hollywood trope but at no point do I see them. Nice or romantic or reminiscing guts are melting at this point. I don't think it's time for a make out session. I've saying even on the way to this point in this. They seem like they work. Well as colleagues. She takes his orders. But I don't see that as a basis for renewing their relationship funniest line in the movie. Howls of laughter. Dustin Hoffman and finally goes and Confronts Morgan Freeman and. He's like my wife is dying and he's like don't you mean your ex-wife like a little kid that he's like sue. You always exaggerate the truth all right. My ex wife is melting. That makes you feel better. That is as flimsy as finding that monkey based on a photograph in a boat. Yeah Yeah let's get there because that is the second biggest laugh of all time right. Somehow they know it's a monkey. What would you do with that information? Of course you would grab Cuba gooding junior steal a helicopter fly to a local news outlet and run to the television camera with the photo. And say have you seen this spunky? Well the thing is what we haven't mentioned yet other than than the plot summary is in the background. Donald Sutherland is being nefarious. And we see that Morgan. Freeman is reporting to him and yes. Sam found out that Morgan Freeman had the cure and so sam knows some of their secret that they had encountered Madaba before and so not wanting to be found out because not only will it kill their careers. They'll probably go to prison for genocide of town. They're working against him. Ford Mortgage Freeman's character. Ford has been trying to get say Sam off the case tried to send him to a wrote K. Sam came to California anyway and now. They're trying to arrest him. Well he's trying to get the monkey that's where Kuba comes in. Is they have to sneak off the base because the MP's are going room to roam looking for this guy and Rene Russo. A funny line. Oh Yeah Tall. Big Guy. The exact opposite of Dustin Hoffman. Because they don't even know what they're looking for and so they have to steal a chopper and even more strange like Sam is like telling his wife you need to leave here by eighteen hundred hours like she's infected like he really wants to break through and go out in fact the world like crazy but yeah like he tells his wife go ahead and break horns and go spread. The disease mean. Well I'M GONNA I'M GONNA photo bomb. The news can you imagine watching the local news. And seeing this crazy man saying. Have you seen this monkey like that would? He's lucky the Internet didn't really exist yet because that is mean city and that is something. That's a joke that will never and they have to find this boat. They go to a municipal records department where they get in trouble for cutting lines and pre Internet just lucky that the municipal clerk is like I have a contact in the coastguard because she's having an affair with someone she knows where the boat is again. This is well. I think this was the part owner you referred to. This is the part where he gets off right. Even if you were kind of with this movie up to this point it's bad there's I can always go with a virus movie. I can always kind of go away but like this is now becoming camp classic like bad movie night territory. This is really almost every scene. How willingly ridiculous. The moment Cuba gooding steals chopper and runs away with Dustin Hoffman. This movie is beyond the Pale of ridiculous. That's what I went. Arnold get to the chopper. Because they would work so much at least I know what kind of movie I'm in your in monkey business. Because the monkey back and forth to him he was just released into the redwood forest. Is HE GONNA make walks. No HE'S GONNA. Start the planet of the this cute little girl that's not gonNA call him her imaginary friend and the MOM's going to be watching the news. See Dustin Hoffman and go. I have seen that monkey in my kids day on drums and this girl must be a remarkable artist. She needs to work for the beliefs as a sketch artist. If you could tell the monkey they show us the drawing. It's it's not great. Well the mother can recognize the monkey from the photo and be like. Oh It's not an imaginary monkey and the fact that they just send the little girl out to get the monkey to just like all right go out there and risk infecting yourself. Because we need that monkey come on. Who was there with his tranquilizer gun like shaky like early on. Dustin Hoffman tells them. It's good that you're scared. You need be scared but come on at some this little girls about to get bit or scratched or spit on by this thing. I have a steady arm. This is why Hollywood has a bad reputation because you bring to it a nonfiction book like hot zone and its goal of all kinds of good science and they go but yeah but don't we need to have a chase scene with the little girl and like well. She gets shot with a tranquilizer. It's the ending of in drama to strain we. All thought was so stupid blown up to forty minutes yes absolutely it will just not end and every scene is worse than the next. It's just amazing..

"And like even Rene Rousso had one called Buddy like there was just a lot of monkeys this doing shit in the movie so this movie kind of feels half the time one of those kitty film. Mike Dunston checks in there you go. There's another one. The monkey doesn't get a whole lot of screen time. Though truthfully mistake I feel like they could really pulled on heartstrings. With acute monkey on screen a lot and he is cute monkey. I would argue. Almost no one gets a lot of screen time because this thing is so scattered and they have to hop all over the place. Like focus is difficult for me. The monkeys biggest star is anybody in this and my favorite parts are when we cut back and we see alright so Jimbo like Plc. Rankin is heavy metal. And she's in the backseat spitting water in his mouth in the pet store owner didn't because he's already got a female already had he didn't want the same sex like I guess he wanted to breed them so oh. I just paid a bunch of money to smuggle this thing. I guess I'll just take it out of the woods to release. There's other people you could sell that. Not only that but it scratched him again. You know every time the interaction with the monkey and it does something to I mean you can just see all the people lining up for infection points and how bad this outbreak could be the fact that Jimbo has a wife in Boston. Hits a flight again. Weird almost eats his cookie. Like this could be really really big. I thought that kid was Sogan. Eat the cookie. I mean. That's a big suspense moment. Is You've got this kid eating the cookie now. Jimbo looks like a meth head. At this point his is he can barely stay awake. I wouldn't think disease. I think bad lifestyle advice saw this guy on a plane but this kid comes in wants to eat the cookie and I'm like Oh yeah we're GONNA kill a kid in this for sure but no the mother comes in at the last second saves the Kid and again these have echoes to the true story about like one of the first people to be infected with a Bolo was like I know something's bad so I'm going to hop on an airplane and get to a major city where I can get a doctor to see me. And he's puking up literally bags of blood the whole flight. Can you imagine being sitting next to that? Guy? And it's just. The book is so written like an exciting movie. Those those scenes pop. You can't imagine them not trying to do it in the rip off. They know what this is supposed to look like. So they're looking at hot zone without owning the rights to it and saying all right. We need to get on an airplane. We need to do the stuff that people are going to know but the fact that it happens in Boston ends up being a red herring because despite the fact that he rode with all these people the only person that I think gets infected as the wife kisses him when he gets off the plane because they wanna make it a big deal when it goes airborne and it has not gone airborne. You let me tell you when I was in college. Head of roommate. Who told me what I was? Considering one of the sexiest stories he was a freshman. He went home for spring break and see his girlfriend. He hadn't seen her all year and he ended up having the flu and the girlfriend wanted to have sex and he's like listen. I have the flu. I'm sick you don't WanNa get this. And she looked at him and said infect me and I'm like that's hot that I got that and then I see this scene with the wife. Kissing that guy and no no do not kiss. Would blood is pouring out of the is is not hot log here. Patrick Dempsey bleeding from the is not hot. I think that's a universal. Yeah mixed dreams more like Nick Nolte and this is what brings Rene Russo. Back into the picture. Because she gets the tip off. Something's happening here flies in the only one that can do the autopsy because everyone else's afraid but what does the dog? She was watching the dogs. She's a busy woman she put them in a Kennel. In Dustin Hoffman Superman that she went to go. Check out this infection. And put the dog's Kennel again. The dogs like this movie again. Feels like it's pattern. Do they want kids to see this? Is this some kind of Beethoven Siegel? I don't know I don't know where they're pitching it. It's rated R. because there is a big fucking shit and they're gonNA keep saying fucking Shit. Oh it is our. I was my wonder I actually felt like this could be treading that line. Pg thirteen they say fuck often. I didn't even. I don't even realize that when when I hear that word so yeah this felt. Pg Thirteen to me. It felt like they were trying to widen it. Audience again. Like how do we sell this kind of sticky concept? We'll just put a lot of cute things in and make it so that teenagers can come. Yeah no this is. This is an art. It's not a hard are by any means but it is an R. rating for language and probably for some intensity you know intense Gore. Whatever you WANNA have here but yes Patrick Dempsey and his wife are quickly out of it. Because they're going to melt in Boston but we don't see the melting. I guess that's my complaint. I feel like if you're going to go are and you're going to use the shadow of a bullet to inform your silly story like let's see that let's let's give people a look at like when she cuts it open. What's in there? They cut away and I just resent this movie for its squeamishness. I felt like it was the anti andromeda strain because drama strain. It turned all of their blood to sand. So it became a solid and now here. It's turning all their organs. Liquid like backwards. But we didn't get that shot. Yeah the G. rated drama two straight at least showed us the Santa Blood. It's more gory. It honestly is more the film is more gory than this. R rated in one thousand nine hundred five movies and more nudity. Yes so many ways but anyway the Boston ends up. Not being a big deal. Nobody else gets it. And so they're in the clear except well. Cedar Creek is having problems and again. You guys aren't laughing at the lab tech. That's not paying attention. Yeah I absolutely am. I didn't even again. This laptop is not related. Like is he checking blood from Boston. Is that why he's getting effect? This is just random blood they took from the Monkey. No it's the pet store owner got sick okay. So He's checking the pet store owner right. Yeah so they're doing blood tests on the pet store owner and this guy's really bad at his job and you know probably deserves what he did to a funny degree. Yeah I mean it is hilarious when he reaches his hand into a spinning machine because he turn fugitives lucky. He didn't lose a finger. No I know. And then he like all over him. It feels like a Jerry Lewis nutty professor routine. If you know the comedian Eric Andre. He's got some new movie coming out where they do pranks and in the trailer he does this with a blender like a Jamba juice store and blood. She's all over. This plays the same way. But it's not supposed to be funny this. I'm actually rolling my eyes at because it's just a horrible business practice and this guy deserves disease. He's going to get am I laughing. No but am I taking it seriously. No no okay. The whole time. The monkey spitting in the guy's mouth. The Guy Falling on the aquarium's all of it. I feel like if this was supposed to be scary. They've missed the mark by a mile. This feels like the scary movie version of andromeda strain. This feels like the way in. Got a hold of this and said how can we make outbreak hilarious? I'm sorry but if you WanNa talk scary though where the story goes with this guy who put his hand in the centrifuge. The movie theater yet when he goes to a movie theater and sneezes and we get to see every particle that comes out of him when he sneezes and the people in the movie theater it infects as of this recording. We're wondering will movie theaters reopened. When will movie theatres reopened will go to them when they do open? I see this. I'm like keep them talking. Closed I don. I mean the amount of contagion mutates in this guy for reasons unknown. Immu TATE's in this lab tech to be airborne and he goes to a movie theater at an effects. Everybody it scares the shit out of me to me. Yeah it feels like one of those scenes in the comedy again. We're stumbling around and just knocking over. Every single thing possible like the way come stumbling out of that theater coughing and my gets on every kernel of popcorn in the theatre. Everyone's milk comedic to me. The yes there's the concept terrifying and absolutely relevant. It's on all of our minds win. Will they opened in theaters and win? Will we be safe to see it? And then there's the the way that it comes across which again. Why is everyone here? See what's up doc and older linney tuned? Sure I never done that in my life and like you can't believe the number of crowds like they're busting on the doors to get the bugs bunny twenty six hundred people and they're all at this theatre. They've never seen bugs butting before and they all need to go right now and of course you have the guys like doing everything but like you know rubbing up Like his tongue against everyone. It's funny I mean it shouldn't be funny because it's not funny. You're absolutely right. This is a horrifying and relevant concept but the way that it comes off makes me go okay. Well at least I haven't lost my sense of humor because this is really dumb. I think what happens is the reason why it's mutating years. The disease is mixing with his stupid. Could just get this virus is going to be like. I'M GONNA be stupid to and so now. We HAVE STUPID STREAM. That's got everyone in the movie theater says and I'm just the spill cam has me terrified to the point. Where when I see him like being told get in the back of the line at concession. Well here's the thing you guys saw this in a movie theater. Do you remember the scene? Remember how it made you feel sitting. I mean because that's kind of Meta like I'm in a movie theater and suddenly I'm going to look at the people around me when they cough and think about it. I'd never got scared and the movie theater watching us to me. It was a popcorn flick the whole time. Yeah I'm the same way as I was nineteen years old and invincible and never thought about getting a disease. That would kill me so yeah anything good. I can say about this film. I think is because we're living through this right now so there's definitely things that I see in the real world I'm like Oh like we'll talk about when they put down into quarantine. I'm like okay. I'm back into this. Fill because we're going through this now yes exactly. That's exactly what. I'm wondering like how much this stupid movie being helped. By the fact that for all of its silliness for all of its b-movie movie. Trappings it is speaking to something that few other movies. What we have out there can right now. Like when Morgan Freeman locks this town down and suddenly you're seeing yeah. People like walked into those tents that again like we're all seeing that in central park. And what have you? It feels straight out of the headlines. Now there's a big mistake as they didn't tell them to shelter at home. These people are just roaming the streets. They know there's some kind of out which again I want to say. This is dumb but as of this recording this past weekend people are protesting staying at home. And we're going to see some people try to escape. The town and like this stuff is going on now. So it's actually not that funny. Yeah this stuff should be hilarious but I agree. I find myself reflecting too much on current events like it is like wow But again in a silly I think that if we didn't have covert nineteen in our heads watching them be marched into these tents. I think we're supposed to think the military is being unreasonable or Nazi like no. It's very reasonable. They should take further steps. No no I'm GonNa say that what this seemed to me was like what the protesters feared. Yes this is the worst case scenario that the real world protesters who were saying you're infringing on our rights by telling us stay at home think we are a step away from the military doing what they do here and I'm also thing about the nineties movie the siege. Remember that Bruce and Denzel. Nope never saw. I know what you're talking about though. Yeah pretty decent has memory serves but to see this town where they're going through and be like if you have disease. Put something on your door and it. Admittedly it's a smaller community with a greater amount of contagion so with corona. We've all been like who has it and just looking at the stats by city here. They're able to lock it down and try to isolate the people who have it but at this point you just have to assume the entire town has it. Yeah it's hilarious this. There's a put a white flag on your door in the military will come and get at you and take you to the hospital..

"From so Morgan. Freeman's character is going to have a hard time taking him seriously but yet his ex wife like when when it comes down to it. She's going to run with whatever he says. I can say honestly. I'd never remember anything in my lunchbox ever being put in there about a viral outbreak. Like that wasn't a thing when we were school kids. The line that said is that. Dustin Hoffman saw an outbreak in Africa and put a note in every school kids lunchbox in America that it was coming there and then it didn't so he he overreacts and nobody really wants to listen to him so why send him. Why does the man that was willing to annihilate all of those people back in sixty seven? Want this guy you know. He's not going to give it up. You know he's going to insist on getting to the bottom of everything why wouldn't you send patsy instead of sending the alarmist because you want it contained and he's the best that's what we're supposed to get from all of this? He's the best there is okay. I think everyone should have been on the same team. I think it'd be helpful if Rene Russo was alright. You can have your divorce story line. They are breaking up like the abyss. But we gotta do this one thing I and so let's get it over with. Let's go there and this is our last mission together and we can hash it out in the huts. There should be more there but yes instead. We're just introduced to Rene Russo. So that we can literally leave the dogs with her and send the man off desire to encounter a very similar tribe but not have the same result. Not bomb this one and do get a couple more of our start. This gotta be cast like this Kevin Spacey and Cuba gooding. Junior entered the scene there part of this team that go desire. I think it's a disaster movie. Trope that you try to include different factions plus movies. They're expensive. You want to appeal to different demographics. I think Kevin Spacey's the stand in for the Funny Gay Guy and Cuba gooding junior brings into black audience. Because he just was coming off boys in the hood. Yeah I was trying to figure out Kevin Spacey. I mean what did he do to deserve? An and Kevin Spacey in this movie. Good agent I had seen him in stuff at the time but I really feel like it was this year where he did this and seven and then usual suspect that broke him big. Yeah those movies hadn't come out yet so no again. They're just promoting this cast is way too big. They could just have Dustin Hoffman and Rene Russo but again this is a nerdy movie about viral outbreaks and things. That are unpleasant that you know popcorn audiences may not wanna see so. Let's get the stars that day like. Let's just try to cast a big net so that we have to larger cast of characters shoehorned into this plot Kevin Spacey's defining Guy Right. He's going to be the one thrown vials and oops. Oh that's not really Madaba in Arna funny because I can make a joke about your nose or your ex wife or whatever he never feels integrated into the story. Either he does feel like. He's a sacrificial lamb here because we want to kill someone on the team and it's down to him or Kuba Right. Yeah well I mean yeah you either kill the black guy or the gay guy and I and I think there was some pressure with AIDS raging at that time you WanNa. Do you want to acknowledge what viruses have done to the gay community? So you give it to Kevin Spacey. Was it known that he was gay? Then I he reads his variegate. Amee and always has yeah watching it now. I know about his sexual identity now and he's just someone I don't WanNa be around and so that's how I read them the whole time. Yeah I agree. He's fatty are buckle. His scandals follow him everywhere. And we can't think of him as funny even though that's his intention and the Okubo gooding junior's the new guy like he's again he would have just been new to the scene boys in the hood. He had just gotten out of high school people's minds and so here he is playing a character. That's got to prove himself. And when he walks into this village and sees the devastation. He's vomiting so hard that he rips his isolation suit helmet off. But it's not airborne so let's all take our home. It's good like you would never do this. No but you know what there is something about the isolation suit that is just not cinematic like people. Don't look cool in it and you don't WanNa have a whole movie where people are wearing beekeeper uniforms. I get that. That's why every Batman Movie Batman takes his mask off while he's fighting crime. Oh every superhero movie. But yeah and I understand that. Dustin Hoffman refused to where the military hat that you know in his rank. Ye should've been wearing a hat the whole movie. He's like it doesn't look good on me. Nope not doing it. Yeah I think again you know. This movie's maddening. Because like in all of these circumstances war later when the isolate the small town everyone would be completely having the protective covering like. There's big you would never see a face or hands or anything they just. They paid a lot of money for these faces and they're not going to cover them up so whenever they can establish that they don't need it gone or the isolation suits and we're looking at these actors. I don't know really what we get out of. Zaire they take some blood samples back to their lab and the kind of leave Africa behind. They don't bring the virus back with them accidentally. You would think that they would make it that. The outbreak was caused by someone on this team that someone got infected and brought it back the fact that it's going to be a random monkey that lived near this village and just happened to be caught by somebody from Korea. I mean I don't get it. Yeah I would have thought that. Somehow the outbreak in Zaire would have led to that monkey being transported or something. It is just wild coincidence that there's a smuggled diseased monkey and an outbreak happening literally the same day. You could almost make the argument. That fortunate dropped the bomb again again. If the point is that you worry that some life form is going to get out of this village. Then yeah I guess you take the attitude. I think what Ford can't be sure of is. Is it the same thing I it? Sounds like the same thing and we need these people to take the samples. So that he'll he'll just literally walk into the lab sneak in when no one's looking and compare the slide side by side and go yup. It's the same thing but I don't know why they don't make the decision to wipe that village off the map again. Like that doesn't make any sense to me. My only thought would be the chain of command is tighter now versus in Vietnam. Where a lot of soldiers did things they shouldn't do. And I gotTA ask again Stewart. You might have some insight into this because he adds occupation like there are and it will happen throughout this film like reports of. Oh this case and the CDC get like. That is a real thing. There's maybe that's the World Health Organization job like to collect random data of viral outbreaks around the world and try to see a big thing or not. Oh Yeah my dad's first job was to literally just go around and talk to people and just literally follow the chain like see who they had sex with and then go meet those people and you just kind of personal but yes you you literally interview people and you create a private document in which you can kind of follow outbreaks and that was his role in the other bureaucracies. Some are more concerned with getting vaccines out or actually do being the health front to get ahead of it. His was more data collection. And we again see that with corona when we had our early cases and even to the point of this recording. If somebody has it the instant thing they're doing is tracing to see. Who did you have contact with? And that's the hope if we get higher testing is that were at least able to isolate those who had contact with the person who is infected so no. This also felt really real to me. But I'm guessing they use more sophisticated equipment than handwriting's will trying to track down. Everyone Patrick Dempsey came into contact. With Excel was a few years off. Yeah it was a weird time and technology. We didn't really even have mobile phones yet. Yeah you can just feel that like. There's still a whole lot about this that yeah nowadays. Yeah you can do contact tracing even with our phones there saying we can get APPs in. Nobody needs to go ask anybody anything. We can just follow that data collection and and see where everyone was and when they came in contact with everyone. Yeah here it's still more of a foot chase and so that part of it. One of the few parts of this movie actually felt realistic but again we leave Africa so quickly they never go to try and find. The origin of the virus will never by the end of this movie. Know where it came from seems like a huge mistake. Yeah I mean we know where it came to this country from. But we don't know anything beyond that and yet Patrick Dempsey. What did he become a bad boy? I only know from camp by me. Love where he's a nerd but he's a bad boy in this movie. Yes Patrick Dempsey to me. Always was a nerd. Because I mean you can't buy me. Love is the epitome but the stuff I remember seeing from around this time. You guys may not even remember these movies but loverboy. Yeah know where he was a pizza delivery man who had a lot of sacks. I mean but he was a nerdy pizza deliveryman or more happy together where he was a nerdy college student who ended up rooming with Helen Slater. I mean he was always a nerdy person so when he showed up and scream three. He's not nerd then when he was starving called MC dreamy. I thought that the world had turned upside down. I did not remember him as what nineties punk aggressor in. This is that a thing. I don't think that was the thing in the nineties. I think the betsy. The monkey is right to spit on him when he's playing this way out of date heavy Metal Music. But the ideas okay. Let's go with this. I haven't seen tiger king but yes there are colorful people who collect animals and sell them to pet stores or are collectors that that really want such thing and so he works at a place where they're always bringing in animals from other places. Yeah some kind of lab but it's not associated with the military and the CDC wait a sec. Where does he work because he lives in Boston Commute he comes from? Did he go to Africa to get the monkey or did he just bribe somebody? No he got it from the lab okay. He bribed shipping house to give him a monkey. I think that he has a deal with this Korean smuggler. Who is on this boat? And we see him. We know he's in trouble because anytime anyone is playing with the Monkey. You're just like that's bad keys. Feeding it a banana and the monkeys like touching his hand and grabbing the banana out of his hand. So we know he's going to be an infection point and then we have Jimbo and he's paying the security guard to look the other way. Don't look at my back seat. I'm driving up the coast. He is in San Jose and then I don't know. How far is the fictional Cedar Creek imagining? This is a fake small town but somewhere up in the redwoods a couple of hours away. There's a pet store that will buy rare monkeys from Africa because that is a booming business. You know a lot of people that small towns go in to buy a random monkey. I don't know here's the weird thing. Because Corona virus. I feel like tired. King blew up on Netflix. Because we're all stuck at home having to watch something and like that's what that's about like people are buying exotic animals just to have in their backyard so again. Another plot point here which would have seemed silly. If we weren't going through these times I think but I don't know I buy it now.

"But he may arrive too late as the town's about to be bombed Sam pleads over the radio with the bomber pilots to aboard and they eventually see the light and refuse mclintock's orders dropping the bomb over the ocean instead billy decides to come clean and has McClintock arrested while Sam takes the anti serum to Roberta saving her life and proving there's a cure for Matab as credits. Roll a lot of names in there. Sam Billy Yeah. I don't even you got into salt or Casey. I didn't I mean this is a plot summary and that is the plot is disease and then the military tries to shoot the person with the cure. That is the plot. Yeah that's always the thing we talk about it from panic. In the streets onward. How do you humanize the threat of a virus? When you can't really see it. How do you have action scenes? How do you make that scary? And so the choice here is. We're going to make it the problem of the military. We start with a nine hundred sixty seven prologue in Zaire. Which as far as I know was not a front of the Vietnam War. I do not know why American soldiers are here battling but they're also dying of a strange plague and McClintock and Ford are going to do something drastic and we don't see them because we are getting the voices here of Donald Sutherland. And I guess Morgan Freeman. I recognize Sutherland. And we're going to remain has very distinctive voice. But I didn't catch him as billy but he's doing the voice there yes they name them forward. Mcclintock yes these characters remained obscured. I don't know why because I feel like the movie tells us pretty early who they are in modern day. I think because you can't the actors and they didn't want to replace them. That's why I'm asking if that was really Morgan. Freeman's voice is because they're using the voices but not showing us these people who are way too old for this So that's why I think they never get out of their suits and yeah they are. They're dealing with this doctor there. Who takes them to see the bodies and he's like Oh there's no danger it's not airborne yet. How are they getting infected and when you still wear a mask? I mean like the people are very casual here and I know rural Africa access to supplies are. But it's strange to see a doctor in full lab coat and everything being like. Yep I'm not going to cover my face. It is a shock again. I told you I was watching this with Marjorie. And she's like the government would really do this and I'm like dropped supplies because that's what I thought was happening and a bomb. I'm like oh I see what you're saying. Pull the rug trick. The sick guys are running out and holding up their hand. Yeah everything's got it's comical. I've got to say this movie treads a line where I feel like many times. They're trying for irony and tension and I find myself laughing aloud. I hope that doesn't offend anyone. But I feel like this movie is Super Funny. Okay you and I are going to be on opposite sides of the table on this one. I'm like this scene is a little too real for me. I actually believe it. Yeah there are scenes that feel very real but it's because they kind of Mir what we're all going through right now and so I'm like. Oh maybe I'm feeling kinder towards this movie because I'm living some of this stuff right now but it's going to go in some wild places by the end and this is just foreshadowing the dropping of this bomb in Zaire. Oh Yeah we're goes is ridiculous but I'm with this movie for the first two thirds including this opening scene. I am not laughing. I'm with it for about the first half hour and then it starts getting weird I would say even as opening scene feels very hokey again. This is the Vietnam War wire. Why is this happening? It's just it's so clumsy but I get they WANNA have the idea that there was an outbreak so many years ago and they think they've handled the problem. You Melt all the people here in there will be no more outbreak and that remains true until we hit nine hundred ninety five and suddenly. It's not really clear why One of the African tribesmen comes out of the jungle sick drinks from a well and we have a new village infected with something that looks a whole lot like. Montauban one well. It's not really clear why it happened the first time either. It's kind of shortsighted from any scientific perspective to think if you kill everyone you're getting rid of it. Where did it originate from? I think you need to know the origins of it to know that you've effectively destroyed it so I'm surprised that it took thirty years to show back up because it's going to come about because a monkey will scratch you or spit on you or something. Like monkey hasn't spit on anyone in thirty years. Abol legit so you know it was a bat cave that was. We're kind of the first cases we we saw the jump to humans that people went wandering into caves. And maybe they put their hand and some Guano or who knows exactly what they did. But by interacting with specific caves in Africa they wound up getting a bola and this is like Super Bowl. Like if a Belo's year is ninety percent mortality rate this is going to be one hundred one hundred percent kills you and what forty eight hours which I think is interesting. Because they're like. Oh yeah that makes it super containable because it just kills you so fast. That doesn't have a chance to spread. Well Yeah I mean keep in mind with corona you have two weeks where you could be a symptomatic and contaminating everyone around you here. You have less than twenty four hours before you start melting so that is actually a good thing in a way. I like how. They're looking at the bright side. Yeah maybe they didn't need to drop a bomb for rural village where everyone walks and the next nearest civilization is fifty miles away. Problem takes care of itself. Well for reasons. They know about a new outbreak and the very man that well he didn't agree to drop the bomb. That was Donald Sutherland but he certainly was complicit. In disposing of these people is now sending people to study it. He got a promotion for they contained the outbreak. But yeah that is now Morgan Freeman. Boss of Dustin Hoffman. Who Again I was following his career. I thought of him as a big star. I mean I mentioned it started with rain man. But I mean I'd seen told C. And Kramer versus Kramer graduate. Yeah I'd by this point. I had seen the graduate. Yes I saw when I graduated so yes I would have seen that but I've talking about growing up my impression of him. I knew his history. I knew he had done stuff but I was a fan of his current stuff so to see him as the star of an action. Movie did not seem strange to me. Now I'm like wait. That is odd. Yeah no it's very strange. Yeah he gives it credibility. Is I still think that we think of him as the Dramatic Atypical Star of the seventies paranoid films? You know all the president's men marathon man and so he's done action before but they always had a little bit more. I don't know if they were realistic. They were more adult. They weren't so quick to have explosions and play to the summer box office mentality. That outbreak is so eager to do here. I I wouldn't have guessed that Dustin Hoffman would agree to sign onto a film quite like this but then again maybe he didn't know maybe this movie in its rush production. He didn't have final script approval. He signed on thinking. It's going to be like this nonfiction book and then yeah found out. He's going to need to go to the gym and jumped onto boats. Chase monkeys around. It's a strange part. I had read that they were looking at action stars for this originally and then they decided to go a different way and try to add more gravitas but arnold was bandied about star in this film very rare that I could ever think are older. Dustin Hoffman which way do we go? That is wow. What a work in the road. I'm not sure in some ways. Arnel makes more sense to what we're actually going to get. I think you can laugh at an arnold movie and Hoffman. Typically doesn't make junk but well he did hook different kind of junk Istar. Your that's was funny. I never managed to see but I actually there's a whole movement now about re visit tar. It's actually a good Phil but yeah here. You know you can invite Scorsese's cinematographer to the party. But not everyone can be Scorsese. They got Michael Bowel House. Who of course had that incredible long? Take where the camera like in one shot went into the Copacabana and Goodfellas and everyone was amazed. How did they stage it? This movie will be a series of single take with CGI fakery that tries to keep things going. We don't want to be bogged down with science so when we get to this lab. It's all about how we can go spinning around. Level one biosafety level two and so on and really dumb it down would be the way I would say at the very least make it really exciting. Yeah you call up these different levels. There's four of them and I go back to and drama straight with your four different levels which are different floors here. Just seems like they're four rooms next to each other it's like very fast moving their sweetmeats that stupid and I'm really paying attention thinking of andromeda strain. I'm like Okay Level. One not contagious level. Two level three level four. And I'm pausing the movie because it's just starting I'm writing all this down thing it's GonNa be super important because they have all these subtitles at the beginning of the movie. You're all this pop up taxed explaining it to you. It never matters it matters only in the sense that it's hyping like ooh thought it was bad. That's only a level three like we're now moving on beyond and again. They studied a bola here. But what they're going to study next. Even more a bowl of than a bola again. It's just a lot of hype and hootenanny. And you mentioned Kramer Versus Kramer. Is this a parody? Is that what they're doing? They're Rene Russo. And Dustin Hoffman joke version of. Like we gotta fight over the Kid Kramer versus Kramer. Listen I think if I ever divorced Marjorie. We would have a fight over our dogs so I actually went with us. Here's the thing we talked about Andromeda strain again going back to that they could have humanized all those scientists a little bit more in here. I guess they're attempting that. Hey we'll we'll make them have real people problems fighting over the dogs and photographs. It just comes off very silly. It's the dialogue. This is some top gun dialogue shit of like who can buy anything coming out of anyone's face. It doesn't sound like adults wrote this. It sounds like action guys wrote this. They do sound like Arnold Lines and cute. One liners and quips. Just seem odd. Coming out of Dustin Hoffman. When he's supposed to be a scientist at that it's just again dumbed down beyond belief and not relatable. I actually feel like who's ever met any couple like this. I was the one most of all pushing for drama and tension between the scientists in andromeda strain but. I don't think it's believable. I don't think I like it that there recently divorced. I mean that is really far. Fetched that the person who's just promoted to head of Aji of the CDC was married. Recently to the head of Kerala chief from the military couldn't they have had a previous professional rivalry? Some romantic tension. Maybe as this goes on but the whole it's my recent ex wife thing. It stretches a lot of my patients. I think it's a way of bringing two different factions onto the table. Like if one side is comes from the US army and the other side is the CDC and back gets you. I don't really know. Do our government institutions. Fight this way while I think we've we've seen some blaming between the. Who and CDC do think that. Yes people can say your fault. No your fault. But the fact that they're aligned with different institutions doesn't really seem to matter to the plot that's going to unfold. Neither one of them is responsible for why this super bowl gets to America and if just discuss their relationship when the virus comes I find it really insulting that. Dustin Hoffman as the husband just takes control I mean he is equal in rank basically to Rene Russo and she defers to him one hundred percent. He's The Star. He's in charge. I'm like is it. Because he's the man I think the. Cdc There should have been again more friction between jurisdiction. Especially what I could tell from. Sam's character he's kind of a chicken little like he called one virus outbreak right decades ago and then his asked for like more shutdowns and nothing ever happened..

"You're dead. You can actually experience. You're everything but you're skeleton melting inside you. Yeah I remember them calling this. The flesh-eating disease is so scary. It sounds like it was cooked by or people you know like resident evil but it was real and it was really publicized in this book that I read the hot zone and just reread for this review. But that came out in one thousand nine hundred four to be technical. The actual outbreak on American soil of a Bola happened in November December. One thousand nine hundred nine so I'm cheating little by calling this a nineties plague but the story of it was popularized throughout the nineties and again it it gave Hollywood. I think a new perspective on viral outbreaks and people wanted to know more about it became more of a separate people reading about watching and wanting to know. But here's what happened. Essentially there was these monkeys that were mailed from the Philippines to this lab twenty miles outside of Washington. Dc and they were infected with a bowl but good news. There are different strains of Abol. If it were a Bulla Zaire we may not be alive right now. Like that had gotten out that has a ninety percent fatality rate. And he got out like didn't know the monkeys had it. They ended up taking blood samples and like these horror stories of technician. Sniffing it not realizing what it is and it could really exploded but this a bowl. The strain ended up being very fatal for the monkeys. But not for humans. The only reason why we're not all melting right now because what got out was easy to contain it. 'cause the same reaction inside human beings but what scared people was. We got these monkeys from Philippines and the first outbreaks of a Bola were in Africa. How did it get there? How did it make that jump? What what's going on in monkeys that Asia to Africa? Suddenly we have the same kind of disease breaking out. And there's a theory I it's scared the shit out of me but when we read the hot zone what they suggest. Is the reason why we had all these super scary. New Diseases is because we were trying to stop the old diseases in the nineteen sixties. Trying to fix polio. We're trying to fix measles smallpox. We need lab test animals and so what happened was there was this to get as many monkeys as you can put them in close proximity cages. And apparently what happened? Is All these monkeys you know? It was a big congregation of like. Hey where are you from? I'm from Upper Africa. You're from Lower Africa. Let swap diseases and so- HIV Ebola. All of that stuff may have been something that jumped from these monkeys and what happened. The monkeys would get sick and they wouldn't get shipped to the labs they just re released them into the wild and so we're not sure there's no way to know exactly what happened. But because so many lab animals were swap bugs and then go and back into the wild. Suddenly it made the jump into jungle animals. Suddenly it was going into bats and eventually it was going into people. The first outbreak of a Bulla is seventy six in Zaire and then in Sudan and nine and then end of one thousand nine hundred nine and makes it to America and of course we've had sixteen other outbreaks since then I mean it's continued to be and people say eventually there will be a big one One that will be much harder to contain. It would be very serious if it did because again. A Bullseye year is ninety percent mortality rate cove in nineteen. That's only four percent so just think about those numbers and Shit Yourself. I mean that's horrifying and you said you've got a couple of times you read this book the Hot Zone. That's what this movie is. Based on right so is the book fiction or nonfiction. Well I actually think this is like deep impact to an unmade armageddon or you know. The book is deep impact. The movies Armageddon. Is that what you're saying? I know I'm saying the hot zone was the book that everyone wanted to make and it was eventually made in two thousand nineteen as a TV miniseries but this movie should have been called crisis in the hot zone. Here's the thing it's not scary. If you tell the story of a virus that breaks out and only hurts monkeys right like you WANNA take elements of. What's in the book but then you want to tweak them naked extra exciting in gives the audiences something to get their heart racing bombs and helicopter chases always going to alter things and I think that might have been. The problem is they had a script. Ridley Scott really was going to make this. I was super excited. I remember they were talking about. Jodi foster posts. Silence of the lambs had signed on. Robert redford posts sneakers. Wanted to do it and it seemed like a good project and then I don't know everyone walked away and I guess it was script problems. But in the meantime there was the studio's trying to make the other version you know like the volcano to Dante's peak was in the works. There's not a winner in that choice. Maybe NOT YEAH. I keep naming these movies but I don't know what the good one is in the bad one. Point is the movie that everyone wanted to see made never did and instead. The ripoff came to screen first and remains really one of the few outbreak movies of the nineteen nineties. It was a short-lived trend. They did make a movie called virus. It's not really about viruses with Jamie Lee. Curtis there's another nineties movie called virus that is about viruses but it's low budget and not a huge film but I saw the Jamie Lee Curtis. Yeah what it is is. There's a race of robots aliens they look at a submarine and think it's sick because all these people are inside so they tried to eradicate the people and that will make the. Yeah it's really not it's terrible. There was also a show very briefly. I don't know if you remember the burning zone it was on. Upn He was right after homeboys in outer space nothing could be on UPN. Wasn't it was like a x-files off Jeffrey? Dean Morgan is like the molder. Who Like as a child? Got a Bolo but Shaman. Magic to heal himself. And then there was like the hard geneticists scientists that was like all your full of bullshit and they would run around the globe. Trying to stop outbreaks every week. But it'd be weird outbreaks like there was spontaneous combustion. All these kids were like exploding and have to figure out why for some reason. It is never a no streaming platform. It's nowhere but I always laughed at the commercials. They never actually watched the show. But I greatly enjoy those next time on the burning zone ads. So my point is there really wasn't a lot to pick from. You'll go to battle with the virus movie you have and it's outbreak a that. I don't ever remember liking. Hey this is the one I've seen in this retrospective. I saw this one in theaters with my dad. I don't know where the rest of the family was. But my dad's WanNa go see a movie and this was the new movie so yeah we WANNA outbreak and that's a movie. I also saw this in theaters. After man I became a major Dustin Hoffman Fan and saw every film. He did in theaters that I knew he was in. I mean looking at his turns out. There were a couple. I didn't hear about like American Buffalo but I saw everything else hook hero outbreak wags the dog mad city. It ended with sphere as it should regulate Michael CRICHTON. Maybe at his worst. I don't know I still love looker. One day we gotta do look guys like my favorite bad movie. Michael Crichton wrote. It directed it to but okay so. I wanted to see it. I remember trying to drag people. I was in film school and it was a mixture of like. We're really busy shooting projects and to everyone was like me. That doesn't look good and it didn't look good but I you know. Sometimes it's not about being a good movie. I just I liked the subject matter. I wanted to see a movie about viruses. It had been a long time but I eventually rented it and memory was that it was just highly disappointed nothing like the hot zone nonfiction novel at All. My memory coming back to this was incredibly compromised. Because truthfully I had a mixture of movies in my brain and it turns out. I didn't know which parts were Congo. Which parts were here? And which parts were this movie. Yeah the talking. Ape IS Congo movie. Bad movie the talking sign. Language APIS Congo another one. Another Michael CRICHTON low low. We should have done a retrospective. There's some laughs in my only memories. Was COOGAN junior trying to run a monkey with a gun and a bomb see. I didn't remember that and it turns out. I remember very little about this. I haven't seen it since theaters as so watching it. This time my wife is like Oh. Yeah and this this this. I'm like you remember the. Oh where's the monkey I'm like? I must have seen him far more recently than I am because I remembered nothing. Yeah I most of America's seeing this recently this is this contagion of the two big viral films that everyone went to when everything started happening. This movie cost. I think of fifty million and in America gross seventy million not a huge profit margin there but did pretty well internationally and I think it's reputation has built in the era of Corona virus. I do think that now people are maybe not willing to go back decades and decades to see older films and so this contagion or the ones that they know about and so for better or for worse. This is what they're using to inform modern day pandemic and so I guess we gotta do it. Earning give them the plot. We'll get into outbreak. Dustin Hoffman plays US military virologist Colonel Sam Daniels. His team is dispatched desire where he discovers a new virus with one hundred percent mortality. He tries to convince his commanding officer. General Billy Ford played by Morgan Freeman to put out an alert about this disease but Ford staunchly refuses four things the disease which they call Matab Mujtaba plenty of worries though. You know that's what that means. Ford thinks. Macabre is completely contained Zaire and the diseases an airborne so not highly contagious but a monkey is smuggled from Africa to Cedar Creek California and infects a pet store owner. We all remember that craze right as big as the of God. I've been watching Tiger teeing. I know this is a real big. Hey that monkey probably did start a craze. Because it's the monkey from friends. Oh isn't it. Yeah I didn't know biggest star in the film. Dustin Hoffman has some gold statues that argue that well you know what I think is star was fading by this point. But keep one please. Anyway a monkey went to a pet storing Cedar Creek and the disease mutated and became airborne spreading through the town. That disease gets the attention of Sam as well as his ex wife. Dr Roberta Q. A CD virologist played by Rene Russo. That's very competitive when those CDC virologists and those military virologist get together. I'm sure Stewart's dad has some stories actually do but I'm not going to share them. Roberta's starts investigating but SAM is stop from participating by General Ford against orders. Sam Goes to California and takes lead on the investigation the military quarantines the town shooting. Anyone who tries to leave General Ford provides Sam with experimental antiviral serum that cures the original disease but not the mutated form it turns out Ford had seen Madaba before air in one thousand sixty seven Ford and his superior officer Major General McClintock played by Donald Sutherland. Firebombed the village killing everyone. They're infected or not to stop the disease and they kept that secret for three decades and McClintock plans to repeat that procedure he and a group of scientists have convinced the US president that for the sake of all American lives they should drop a bomb in California to kill everyone and stop the disease. Sam Continues to track down the monkey with disease.

"Outbreak so we've kind of been here before there was a rush eighteen years ago with the sars virus they had a vaccine they were working on but it didn't quite get there in time doctor Peter hotels is dean of the national school of tropical medicine at Baylor college of medicine and he helps to develop an experimental sars vaccine so with sars and this virus being in the same family what are we thinking that maybe that could be a good base to to jump off of yeah absolutely it turns out that the two viruses are pretty closely related we know this because the Chinese invested a lot in science and they got a huge amount of information shortly after the outbreak that show that the virus by the same receptor in the long so the two viruses stars yeah or a virus and the fact that there are about eighty percent similar so there's even a possibility that some of the sars vaccine our family developed even thank yous in this current epidemic okay bought it and and let's see if we can you know briefly but succinctly explained to the audience the steps that need to happen if it turns out that this works before it's available at your you know your neighborhood pharmacy or your physician's office yeah it's actually quite an extraordinary story so we were funded by the national institutes of health to develop a sars vaccine and we we turned around pretty quickly were able to develop it show a protected laboratory animals against sars sure it was pretty safe and avoided some of the state you heard of that the other stars vaccines presented and then we actually have a manufacturer so we thought we were ready to go straight from the trials but then we couldn't attract anybody to invest in clinical trials so there was no interest because there's one so we are kept the vaccine and stability protocol meaning testing to see if they're still stable that didn't do great it is an and here we are that was done in twenty sixteen and now we're trying to see if we can move this vaccine forward the problem is this you know despite what the anti vaccine people often like a set of vaccines are not adequately sept tested for safety there in fact the most safety captain pharmaceuticals we have so that's the slow point so there's a number of technologies that are out there for this new in corona virus epidemic and it's a it's a matter of not doing well with the safety tests that need to be done and really can't rush those two months so that's gonna slow everybody how long does it take when you're really you know gas pedal down we need a vaccine what is the shortest you can get one out it's hard to say you know the the rules are changing a little bit because you know we've seen if we're really in a dire situation like Ebola in Congo we can do some things in parallel so let me see how quickly we can move on this can also never not up to us in currently yep the epicenters in China those gossipy up to Chinese authorities to see how quickly they want to move so are you optimistic that there will be some vaccine if not the D. are a derivative of the experimental sars vaccine that you were involved with some other one are you optimistic that there will be one within the next what I don't know two years three years yeah I mean if we have that much of the time I'm pretty certain that turns out the technology to make a corona virus vaccine is not as complicated as HIV aids or or some of the other viruses I mean there are issues around insuring that it's that it's safe but I think it's definitely doable which is very tough to do this in such a crisis setting and moved so far it's a very quickly so it's all hands on deck everybody's working very hard to see if we can get this vaccine is to China I think it's going to be about four five candidates vaccine candidates out there and again it's a matter of resources is ours is somebody willing to pay for all the safety testing for all four five at once because if you just rely on one it's putting your eggs on one basket you're the high risk of failure so what we're hoping to see is that the global health leaders invested in four or five of these including Mars and with the help someone emerges as as a clear raw a clear vaccine that protects the stone Sir Peter how Tess dean of the national school of tropical medicine Baylor college of medicine and he did help to develop an experimental sars faxing probably looked in your maybe phone this morning thought you got all the news you need to know but you know you probably missed something we always find.

"Creased that is increase the number of deer tics and at the same time people are now living in you know these reforested areas out in the suburbs where deer are everywhere and they're being exposed to the ticks and getting lime disease the other problem is is that we're really not fully prepared to deal with these problems we really don't have great methods of of controlling the ticks or even some of these mosquito borne diseases so we need to do a lot more work and trying to figure out how to best control these go ahead ask you about the question of climate change in all this i mean if longer and hotter spring and summer season doesn't seasons doesn't that mean longer seasons for these animals to breed and live in other words i i i want you to comment to the extent that you can on how climate change contributes to this problem well warmer temperatures affect many of these diseases in many ways making them worse so for example when you have warmer temperatures that seems to promote west nile virus outbreak so all the major outbreaks of west nile virus and and the us have occurred during heat waves so the more heat waves you have the more outbreaks you get from that as well as other mosquito borne diseases you know for the tick borne diseases what happens is when there's warmer temperatures it does two things one is it allows the ticks live further north this causing them to spread into new areas and also increases the length of tick season.
