"Jeffrey flags, the group's president and CEO, says HHC wanted to stockpile all this gear to avoid repeating the medical supply chain Nightmares of 2020 the earliest days of the pandemic, much of our supply. Acquisition came from China. And secondarily from Italy. So the two countries were impacted most first as global supplies, dried up, pp became hard to get states were pitted against one another. And in response, some connection manufacturers saw an opportunity. Additional parts of their business were down. So they started making PB to recoup lost profits and to help we built up the business all of last year to the point where we have 65 new employees. And we're running two shifts. So it's the one in the morning being. Carbone, president of Modern plastics and Shelton, Connecticut, pivoted from specialized plastic parts for knee replacements to those now ubiquitous, transparent face shields that doctors and dentists where His company made more than 30 million of them. But once Asian markets recovered and ramped up production in the late summer and fall, he says, buyer Stop calling him back. Ah, lot of the local institutions, hospitals, etcetera. Went back to China because the Chinese peopie was cheaper, which meant Carbone, who recently sent two million unsold face shields to sit in storage, had to make a tough call released the new facility and Derby. Which I had to smuggle in March. Because the business literally dried up. The employees were gone. The facility is closed, Carbone says he'd like to make more Peopie. But with few buyers. He's back to his core business, specialized plastic parts. And that leaves Colin Cooper, Connecticut's chief manufacturing officer, wondering when local P P manufacturers close what will happen if global markets fall apart again.

Obviously, I'm having domestic supplies of these products case, there's another pandemic. But if the country wants to make investments and automation, technology efficiency and job training to compete better internationally, Cooper says the decision needs to be made soon. If the decision is made your nine months from now, our 12 months and now to put some financial resource is behind domestic purchasing.

What's going on in Europe right now? Well, you know, in Europe, there's a great deal of skepticism toward modern technologies. Uh, except when it comes to being green quote unquote, where their judgments are impaired or distorted by their idealism. But when it comes to farming They embrace something called aggro Ecology, which is a basic tenet of this farm toe fork thing. And it's essentially, uh, denying, um modern agricultural techniques, chemicals, genetically engineered plants.

Ross? Maybe they're trying to make the Wiz again and make that better. Oh, make sir bad. The Wiz really was like. Don't even has a place though, in its own separate category, because that was a good call. I know it wasn't a reimagining of the season. Yeah, there was some good songs.

Millions of pieces of debris or speeding around the earth at speeds of 17,000 miles an hour. Oh, wow. Yeah. Hey, we're joined now by our non partisan political analyst Gary Dietrich. You can catch him on Twitter at Gary Dietrich. I want us to kick off a starting about these two poles. The Berkeley poll of the Peopie icy pole on Governor Gavin Newsom. Neither one look great. Although the PP I see is a little bit better Give us an idea of what's happening in the governor's office right now. Are they watching these what is likely to be their reaction? There was no doubt that they're keeping a close eye on this kind of stuff, Kristina because they have to, You know, we we always think about policy. We certainly know everything about pandemics politics. Factors into everything. It's just impossible for that not to be the case. Just keep in mind the governor's running for re election next year and now the You know supporters of this Rico and say this week they've got 1.3 million signatures to qualify. One to center one point 5.5 2 in mid March 2 tournament, So no doubt they're keeping close, honest and this is the numbers that I think are really key out of this. Let's just take the Berkeley pulled so last September full two thirds 64% of voters said they approved of the governor governor's job approval. And now that is down to 46% less than half and whenever you dropped below 50% that always makes political folks nervous. All right, Gary, those are big, big numbers. That's a big drop for the governor on. There are a couple of other big stories that are surfacing this morning that we want to get to number one word that Adam Schiff might be moving to Sacramento want to get to that report? Also want to hear what you're hearing at the Capitol about the employment development department, 30 up to $30 billion stolen and, you know is there going to be any investigation done, So we need to talk with you on those two topics in a minute, but we got to check on traffic.

So the YouTube series ask Mortician and Stephen Camp, the director of Camp funeral home in Cremation services in Southfield, Michigan. Steven. One of the things that we're talking about, is first responders a lot during this on de sensual workers during this pandemic, And you all are considered a sensual workers and often on the front lines. Do you think that funeral staff and funeral homes have been Treated a such have you all been given vaccine priority, for example, or the The Peopie Resource is that you need to do the jobs that you're doing. Well, initially in March and April, when the surge happened with us the PPD was a huge problem. My suppliers were out of everything There was. I couldn't get disinfected. I couldn't get anything from suppliers at all because the general public was buying up what we use every day. The hospitals were having the same issue. In terms of vaccines. That's one of my pet peeves because they seem to have forgotten about us. If you didn't know my wife, my son and I all had Colbert in March. My wife and I were isolated for two weeks because we were exposed and then we're positive for Called it. Um um And now with vaccines, eyes almost like we're for gotten in some areas. It is spotty. Some areas covert. I mean vaccines that were given one day with the first responders in my state were considered one B group. See which one he puts us under people under 65. So they're with the limited amount of vaccines that we have, Um we haven't even been contacted or called or anything, And we're exposed to it every single day, if not from the human remains is actually from the families who've been exposed to it. Who actually come into our office on and you know, exposes inadvertently, but often them have been quarantined area in the house. Household with the remains and the people have been exposed to him. So I think that we have been for gotten On and I feel a little bit of resentment towards it. Um and you know, I really tried to make my voice heard in terms of government and us being considered first responders. Even though we're last we're the end. Health care. Uh, professionals who take care of these people were no. But nobody's there to pick up human remains. And where would we be? So consequently, I think that's important. I'm sorry that your family had to deal with the cove. It 19 infections. Stephen Kaylen. In addition to what Stevens describing as the the health and safety elements here, there's also a mental health effect that this has to have with the understanding that you're both Funeral professionals here, the the enormity and the amount of bodies of the deceased that you're both describing. I wonder if that has had an effect on Um, the mental health of funeral directors and providers, Caitlin Absolutely. It's a complete shift. You know, we are funeral directors, but we are not Mass fatality. Experts were not used to coming in and Cremating or burying this sheer amount of bodies and I think we're the real sadness comes in is like like Stephen said. The phone never stops ringing and we just don't have the resource is we've had to turn people away and having to turn away these families that are sobbing begging you saying, please. My dad has been here. This is the 15th funeral home. We've called please. Come pick him up. Can someone help us and to say Not only can we not help you? But there's just no one to help you. I don't know what you want Other funeral homes that can pick up right now or I don't know. There's no government line that you could call For someone to help you That really takes its toll. And you notice that, you know, we we call around to do our jobs to file these paperwork, tol them cremated or buried and everyone from the doctors to the coroner's office to the nurses in the hospital's Everyone is doing their absolute best. But you can just hear the quiver in their voices as they attempt to hold it together every day. And I mean the biggest thing. Oh, is the families the families of these people who have done Right and don't have support from their community because they're isolated and their government because they're not stepping up and I I think we don't know yet what the long term consequences are going to be. Stephen. How has the pandemic changed the way you do your job? We know that doctors, for example, and I see you. Professionals are now having to You know, use phones to zoom or face time with family members in many ways, So how is that affected? How you do your job? Pretty significantly in that. Praise the Lord that I have. You know, we've prepared here because we're pretty new building facility about three years ago, so we were already equipped. With zoom and webcasting technology, But we really have to put that into effect in our websites. They had to update our websites to make virtual showrooms. You zoom almost every day and meeting with families or Skype or any other the electronic in the phone. Is change the change that Dennis tremendously Because now we can't even have funerals. We only have 25 people and that varies. We go from 10 to 0, the 25 to 20% of volume. It all depends on what the death rate is. And because the cove it Infection rate is that particular week so we're getting differing. Regulations from our state government. S so we have to adapt almost daily to whatever you know, our governor is trying to keep us safe. I you know I support are 100%. But it's been it's been challenging. So everything now is virtual. On families. You know, we don't touch the families. Most of the families we serve. We know we know personal. They're friends. Um and you're being unable to see them and they were having able to see him in the hospital. They if they haven't a cremation, and there's no prep work, they can't see him in before cremation. All we have to assure my picture is really Been very tough on the families and my staff. We need the mental break from all this and take them. This R rated is decreased somewhat. Um, this first quarter of 2021. Even we've got a minute left. Is there something that the federal government should do? We know that they've added some money for funerals related to covet 19 in the December stimulus package, But what else in about a minute? It's it's starting to move. There is the new stimulus, which I hope people are going to be able to easily and clearly access for funeral funds. They have activated the De Morte, which is the disaster Mortuary operations relief team, although I think that's going to be more focused on the coroner's office. We need help for the families. And smaller funeral homes when it comes to refrigeration, and when it comes to costs because these lower income families cannot bear the costs of a large, elaborate funeral home. This is something that the government needs to step in on. There's no what better example of people who need relief than people who are still dying on Mass from Cove ID in Thies. Lower income black and brown areas..

Nurse shares her experience treating COVID-19 patients in Miami and Los Angeles

"L. A county became the first in the nation to hit more than one million cases since the beginning of the pandemic. I see you. Availability remains at 0% at most hospitals. Cherie Perry Smith is a traveling ICU nurse who arrived in L a last week and she stationed at Martin Luther King Jr Community Hospital in south L. A, and she recovered from having Cove it back in October. Welcome to press play, Cherie and Welcome to L A. Thank you, Madeline. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you and this is your fourth station for covert treatment. I believe you were in Atlanta. Miami in Texas. How does the situation in l A compared to those cities? It's really rough. It was probably most comparable to Miami. Honestly, um, is, um I see you capacity is just it's beyond capacity. Um you know him, Okay. It was a 10 bed. I see you, and then it was expanded to 20. And now there are 35. We're still expanding. So it serves a community of 1.8 million in Compton. So it's It's really hard and Nations are The communities being Rod's very heavily. So it reminded me of a lot of Miami. Just limited resource is and people coming in really late in coming in. Really, really Siddiq. Oh, right, because they're putting off treatment because they know that there's very little capacity, right? Right. So people are coming in already, you know, with Multiple organ systems failing. Wow. So when you're comparing it to Miami, what do you mean by that? Take us back to the Miami days and what it looked like I was in Miami over the summer, and that's actually where o'clock clothing on while I was there. I mean, I didn't cover till October, but it was in Miami. It was it was like working. The ICU is normally pretty stable, like you is not like working in the ER. So when I've been er nurse, too, but I preferred ICU because it's always controlled. There's this uncontrolled is done stable, multiple cold's going off with multiple patients. It's a war zone on DATs. What Miami felt like and L a certainly Was very reminiscent of that period of time in my career where the patients are so unpredictable, and it's just when you have multiple people coding at the same time. It's very hard to give them the resources they need, because you're stretched very thin. And so that is what you're seeing now in L. A All right, um, lovely. We have PPE here, Which is my blessing. Just because Miami we were given one gown for patient per day. I was in one in 95 masks for three weeks. I get on in 95 mask every time I come on shift, so I'm grateful for that here, and I can use gowns one time and one time out. I'm grateful that you know people have generously donated to this hospital on we have peopie. But the patients are very, very stick. You know, we have patients in their thirties there. We have mothers. We have fathers. We have just people and it's really sad. You're on zoom calls, and they're saying goodbye and It's very hard. Were you expecting that? MLK has been on CNN. They've been told it the epicenter of the epicenter in L. A On. Guy knew all this going into the assignment, but I think because I had been in Atlanta for a little bit, and that's home. I kind of got used tol like, you know the stability of working in a stable covert unit again and So I was a little triggered when I got here. I had to take a moment to kind of be compressed because, um It took me time, you know, especially after having cold it, you know, to see those patients like that, cause I certainly thought that could have been me too, too. So, um my first night was rough. Umm Cold's going off and I looked like I was, um, orientation precept. It was amazing. All the nurses and staff physicians are amazing at the hospital it working so hard and Even stretched so thin that they said they sent in the National Guard to help us as well. So it's The first night I had to take a moment of my precept and say, Hey, I just need to take a breather. Get out my Mass because I felt those flashbacks coming back from working in Miami and And so many people die in a day. You know, it's really hard. Yeah, it really is. Especially since as you say, we saw these images you know, on the news from Miami over the summer and in other cities as well, New York, Of course in the spring. And yet, here we are. Almost a year into it. You hit the nail on the head. You know, it's like you think you're prepared and you never are. You know, I remember Washington when it was happening December in China, And then I watched in Italy and I watched the New York and Hey, And here we are, Like you said, a year out coming up on one year and and there's no break. It's just you feel like you don't get any respite. No. No rest from from the chaos and I mean, we're even in Texas. When I was in Texas. They had a mobile morgue Did er there? And, um You know, it's and I'm hoping with the vaccines rolling out, you know things will we kind of get herd immunity, But even nurses, there's physician. There's people that are very skeptical about it. And I've had both of my doses now, but I think that that's gonna be a problem with getting the pandemic under control is the apprehension to give back to native Can you explain that to me

"Peopie on. When I was last here in April, it was in the middle of the first wave. Met Dr Ernie Wong, a young consultant in respiratory medicine from Hong Kong. Nine months later, his ward has expanded and so has his knowledge of the disease. I remembered him for his irrepressible energy. But these days he feels the strain. We didn't expect to be here in this same position again. Stressful. One of tiring on to rally the spirit again can be challenging. You have heard commentators coming out and saying Don't wear masks. It's my right to break the rules. What do you think when you hear that things really disappointing. Because I think if any people know how much patients are suffering and what they're going through in the hospital, I think it it doesn't motivate you. When you see people on the streets, you know, and then the shops not wearing masks to see people breaking the rules does break your heart. And you were about seeing those very same people in hospital in a few weeks to be honest, Was Dr Ernie Wang, ending that reporter from inside to London hospitals by the BBC's Fergal Keane. Listening to news out from the BBC cameras here, take bath. To the United States. Now, where will stay for the remainder of the program later, we'll hear from Los Angeles, where hospitals are seeing a surge in covert patients, but first to the aftermath of yesterday's historic decision. The second impeachment of President Trump. Next. It's the Senate's turn to decide if the president should be convicted of the inciting of inciting an insurrection on January, the sixth This is a political trial. The president can't be sent to jail, but one outcome could be that he could be barred from standing for public office ever again, given that 10 Republicans voted for the impeachment in the House. This marks a political reckoning for the GOP, and for a man who has dominated it in the Senate for so long. The current Senate Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, more on him and his intentions in a few minutes first. Let's recap the truly unprecedented day we saw on Wednesday after the vote in the House. The president released a video statement that didn't mention his impeachment. He said there was no justification for violence and warned his supporters against any further lawbreaking. There has been reporting that additional demonstrations are being planned. In the coming days, both here in Washington. And across the country. Have been briefed by the U. S Secret service on the potential threats. Every American deserves to have their voice heard. In a respectful and peaceful way. That is your first Amendment, right? But I cannot emphasize that there must be no violence, no law breaking and no vandalism of any kind. Everyone must follow our laws and obey the instructions of law enforcement. I have directed federal agencies to use all necessary resource is To maintain order. President Trump last night. So what do President Trump's supporters make of the impeachment vote in the House of Representatives? The BBC's Jane O'Brien has been speaking to some of them in New Hampshire. My name is Chris Sager. I'm the Republican National Committee man for New Hampshire. And I think the impeachment is ill informed. There's only one week left in the Trump administration. So there's no purpose. There's no benefit to the.

"The lobbying interests. No. All the people in Washington D. C. Who are making just a ton of money off of this lending system. And so it doesn't surprise me that she would come out against it. And, um, But I would say this is very important. You know the person who ran the federal lending system Wayne Johnson under Betsy DeVos. Uh, he's a Republican from Georgia. In fact, he ran for Senate in Georgia, unfortunately, didn't make it. He resigned his position about a year ago, and he started calling out right for the return of bankruptcy protections to student loans and also widespread loan cancelation. So while this seems to be apart into a partisan issue It really shouldn't be. And you know, I'm I'm just horrified to see if the drawn along these partisan lines were right. And I don't know that it necessarily. I don't know that it really always is. I think there's a certain psychological line, though. In fact, it was somebody on Twitter if you want to follow me. On Twitter. It's at Deacon Pun it but Pem Daisy said, Um, Personally, I think the thing that hey was here. She I don't know who it is, but was just saying a lot of people don't like the idea of someone else getting something for free that they didn't get themselves. And so that's what the psychological line is. It's not necessarily in Democratic or Republican. I don't I don't think I mean, I think there's just a lot of people who are Democrats were going to go. That's not fair because I had to pay off my college loans. So why should they get something I didn't get? Was. It's a little bit even more than that. And you know, where was the protest about all of these Peopie fee loans, trillions of dollars in P P P loans that we just throughout the country, all of which added to the national debt. Right? None of which will be repaid. Where was the protest? I didn't see it. But when you mentioned college and college students, all of a sudden people think, uh, fear spring break kids irresponsibility, and suddenly the paternalism comes out. You know, he and I did some research and we we broke this last week. It turns out that there are more people in this country over the age of 50 with student loans. Then there are people under the age of 25. Did you not? You know, because these loans have no bankruptcy, but also because he's gonna have no statutes of limitations. That's true. People are being repped by these loans into their later years in their life. And Moss. So I might also add. This is a conservative are sort of liberal conservative issue as relatives should be. The battle lines are drawn that way, but People being hurt worse twice. Student loans are from Red states, and I might also add 40% of all student loan borrowers never graduated. So people talking about? Oh, we don't need to bail out these rich kids, right? You know, the people that are doing great and they have college degrees. They're making a ton of money. That is not the reality. Um, you know, 55% of all student loan borrowers identify politically as being either Republican or independent. And so, but we were going to get people have in their minds of antifa and blog. He's radical leftie protesters. That is just not that is not the true picture, but I want to jump in there to say. That's because these loans are not necessarily for four year liberal arts colleges, either, right? I mean, this is the college loan program could be for all sorts of different types of schools. Which would be very consistent with a red state where there might be more people who aren't going to say a four year university degree. I don't know that to be true, but they may be, you know. I know people who are going to trade colleges entirely on loans, and those prices for those trade schools are in there, asshole. Aya's any four year college I know. You know you're exactly right yet. You know there was a guy micro, and he recently wrote a piece coming out against lone cancelation. Say why? Why should my taxpayer dollars be paying for your overpriced fluffy education? Well, micro obviously doesn't know the fax. And we have people in our group a ton of them from red stage there red blooded Republicans. They went to truck driving school right well, and he's right beauty, beauty schools, beauty schools. Really cool. Um you know you name the blue collar trade and I will show you a student loan borrower who is over $100,000 in debt because of trying to learn that trade, so that does not surprise me. You know, people are trying very hard to make this a classist issue, and it's just not. You know, It's not a young person's issue. It's not AH liberal persons issue. It's none of those things. 55 million people in the country either house, England's or co signed on them. And they span every spectrum that you can point you. The only thing they have in common is that they didn't have to pay. They can't pay back. Common denominator. All right, all right. Well, hang on a second. So get now. So we talked about the fact that President elect Biden was no talking about $10,000 cap on forgiveness, but says that he thinks there's value in keeping the program otherwise impact. In light of the kind of numbers we're talking about. How many people would be would have their debt wiped out at $10,000? You haven't really young, You know the average student loan in debt in this federal loan just about $37,000 per person right now as we speak, so that's quite frankly. It's pretty insulting, and it's more than that is dangerous in because this lending system is a national threat, you know the inflation of this length of these loans. And, uh, you know the way the government has used this to fund other programs that a lot of people don't agree with, like Obama care and others has become something It was never meant to be, Um, you know, John Adams said. There's two ways in two ways to enslave a country. One is by the sword. The other is by debt, and that is We are living that now under the student loan regime, so okay. All right, Wait, wait. It was done. It's got to be ended here. And so I'm I'm stunned with. No, no, no, We're good. We're coming up to the bottom of the hour. So I just wanted to recap. So so we can say very clearly. That the loan program if if it had the same if it the same constitutional control over college debt existed as a win over any other kind of debt. This problem wouldn't exist if it's on Lee because of the exemption. From bankruptcy courts bankruptcy laws that it's only because of the exemption for that that we have the ballooning problem that we have. That's exactly right. I will also add statutes of limitations and set your limitations. So we change that. And we said from now on college debt is going to be the same as any other kind of debt that it might be a way of resolving in large part the issue because even if we don't go down the road of forgiveness well, everybody could agree on that is being fair, right? I mean, liberal conservative. Whatever you can say, Well, OK, find it no longer enjoys special protection. College debt no longer enjoys special protection. And then anybody anything could happen to that debt that could happen to any other kind of debt in the United States. You have solved the problem exactly on the head in, you know, for the 1st 15 years of the existence of my group. We thought what I thought was very moderately for only the return of the same constitutionally and shrine Bankruptcy, writes that every other borrower for every other type of loan hands The problem is that at this late date 80% of those 55 million people. I sense about 44 million people. They were never gonna be able to repay their loans even before the pandemic, So at this point returning bankruptcy protections obviously, we're for it were for 1000%. I think the consequence of that is going to be 20 million people. Or maybe even more flooding The bankruptcy courts, you know, they can't They're not enough bankruptcy judges. There's not enough bankruptcy court rooms to handle that flood. Well, in an average year, fewer than a million people filed for bankruptcy for any reason. So if you start putting five million student loan borrowers per year or made, maybe even more will probably get five or 10, maybe even the first year. I think it would probably overwhelmed the bankruptcy, of course to the point of seizure and so right, So, taking taking a step back, you kind of have to say Well, we're in a pandemic. The government. The president could cancel these loans without needing to raise one dime of tax without adding one penny to the national debt is it may be time for a jubilee and, you know, I think it is. We need fiscal stimulus right.

McConnell on coronavirus relief: Senate "ought to pass what we can agree on"

"Billion coronavirus stimulus bill hit another snag on Capitol Hill. Correspondent Linda Kenyon has the latest Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, who sets the floor agenda says No. A comprehensive approach to coronavirus stimulus. Is not the path he will take. It remains my view that we ought to pass what we can agree on, and that means many things. P Peopie vaccine delivery. Additional assistance, health care providers in a variety of other things that are not controversial. What is controversial, he says, is liability protection. This is not just about business is it's about universities about charities. And others who see this developing epidemic of lawsuits headed their way and it's not total immunity. It wouldn't protect you if you were grossly negligent. Would engage intentional misbehavior. Democrats do not support liability protection. They do support aid to state and local governments. Senator McConnell does not a lot of members on our side. Look at the various states that received $150 billion We did in the Caress Act and wonder if this is the monster will need, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says. Of course it's demonstrably need. Senator McConnell has put the jobs of firefighters Ambulance workers, sanitation officers, police officers in jeopardy. Every governor and mayor across the country has been fighting to keep these people working. And McConnell is pulling the rug out from under them. Senator Schumer also says aid to state and local governments is bipartisan. The state and local funding provisions have broad bipartisan support. The National Governors Association and within the Senate, many Republicans support state and local funding. That's why Senator Schumer says the majority leader should allow a vote on a bipartisan, bicameral, covert released bill that includes a more broad approach. Senator McConnell says. That's just not going to happen. Leaving here without a covert relate package cannot happen. The bill might be attached to a year and government funding bill. Even Senator McConnell says it probably won't be the last word. We'll be back out this after the first of the year. Linda Canyon Washington 18 after religious high school

U.K. Begins Mass Vaccination Against The Coronavirus

"Has become the first Western country to begin a mass vaccination campaign against Cove. It 19. Thousands of Brits received the first dose today of the two dose Fizer by on tech vaccine. The country is starting with two highest priority groups. That is people over 80 years old. And health care workers on the front line of the fight against the virus. One of those health care workers is Dr Matthew Morgan. He works in the ICU at a hospital in Cardiff, Wales. Welcome. Thank you very much. Thank you. So I understand that you received your first dose today. Just a few hours ago. What was that like I did. It's being a good day. A busy day. I have an arm, which isn't taking a tall at the minute. There's a tiny little plaster on it. But other than that, I'm doing very well. Were you surprised that you haven't been feeling any side effects whatsoever? Well, I think his health care professionals, we have vaccinations quite regularly. I have the flu vaccine annually is part of work. And really, although the excitement of the day was there to some extent, he was just the same as any other vaccine. It was just the same as having the flu vaccine in terms of the process Interesting. Well as an ICU doctor. You and your colleagues have seen the worst of this disease, and I'm wondering if you could just talk about what's the mood been like today at your hospital? So we subpoena a nod mood in many ways. It's kind of a combination of feeling proud, hopeful but also realistic, and I say, proud because it was 38 weeks to the day. That we admitted the first critically ill patient with covert to our ICU on. It's remarkable to think that in less than the duration of the pregnancy 38 weeks, we now have gone from that. Actually having a vaccine, and that's a remarkable achievement for science for medicine and humanity. Ready. I'm also realistic because this changes Everything. But it changes nothing. And in many ways, the biggest danger of this vaccine is complacency. Well, I'm glad that you brought that up because I want to just underline that I mean, what exactly what substantively changes if anything at all changes. Because of the fact that you were now vaccinated. What changes as you continue to treat covert patients anything. Yeah, At the minute. Nothing changes, practically or physically will be wearing the same Peopie will be following the same advice for hand washing, not touch and faces social distance in but gradually As the days turned into weeks, and the weeks turned into months. I hope this will be the start of a new new normal well. The UK is hoping to administer hundreds of thousands of doses of the vaccine by the end of the year. But that could take many months to spread, You know, beyond the highest priority groups. So what's your message to your family? Your friends and your fellow Brits, as all of them await their turn for a vaccine. I think there's two things to say. Really. First of all, it's that there is hope. There is some light at the end of that tunnel. There's also been a lot of discussion about safety, but for me The most dangerous bit of having that vaccination. Today was the car journey to get there. You know, everything in life has risks. Driving has risks. But we do it because it has benefits on did. It's just the same as this vaccine. It has tiny risks, but it's got huge benefits. And if it's for me, not getting sick, hopefully My family not getting sick. My patients not getting sick. My colleagues not getting sick on even strangers. Hopefully not getting sick. Dr. Matthew Morgan is an ICU doctor at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. Thank you very much for joining us today. Thank you all stay safe.

Comparing Trump and Biden's plans to end the COVID-19 pandemic

"Biden ends up winning the presidential election, he'll have plenty of campaign promises to live up to that includes lofty goals. The former vice president has said he'd get started as soon as he's sworn in. If I'm your president on day one. We'll implement the national strategy I've been laying out since March would develop. And deploy rapid test with results available immediately. Five the honor of being president. I will end the Muslim ban on day one. I'd make the changes on the corporate taxes on day one day one I'm sending to the United States Congress, a immigration bill providing a pathway for 11 million undocumented, and I'm gonna make sure every dreamer is protected. I'm gonna have to wait and see whether a potential Joe Biden administration can actually hit the ground running on all of those policies for more. I'm joined by Jennifer Epstein Political reporter covering the Biden campaign for Bloomberg News, Jennifer Thanks for being with me. Thanks for having me. President Trump has downplayed the severity of the Corona virus, even after contracting it himself. But Joe Biden said he'd make some big changes if he became president. What would he do differently? It goes from from everything from encouraging mask wearing by leading by example on that, as he has during the campaign wearing a mask himself. All the time, except for when he's kind of out of microphone, socially distanced from anybody else on stage, launching a whole of federal government response to the pandemic that Would be aggressively different. I think than the trump planet he would not be fighting with from the scientists. He would be listening to them, he has said. Deploying the resources of the federal government. He plans to use the Defense Production act more aggressively than President Trump has to kind of get industry to do its part, whether it's with Peopie production. For vaccine production down the line. He has a plan for the distribution of the vaccine, even just it in defending the affordable care act. He says that that will make Vaccine distribution easier and free and also will protect people who end up having long term health. Issues because of their covert cases, long issues or or whatever else So it really is A is a pretty comprehensive approach. Um, that touches on a whole lot of different areas. I think you know it's the public health response and then obviously also an economic response. He says that he will Talked to governors and mayors. About mask wearing to try Tio encourage them, Tio put in their own mask mandates. Hey, can't you know really order a federal mandate kind of some of the stuff that the trump people have said. But he can certainly encouraged mask wearing as I said, before, it seems like he really just wants to bore down in every single area where that the government can help fight. This pandemic is kind of a piece of what he plans to do. Joe Biden would also inherit a Jennifer A. An economy right now that has been battered by the cove in 19 crisis We mentioned at the top of the show that AH eight million Americans have been pushed into poverty. People are scrambling to keep their homes to put food on the table to find work that may not return. Since this pandemic has taken hold of the country. Does Joe Biden have a plan for dealing with that economy should he inherited asked becoming president. Yeah, he does. He has this economic plan called Build back better, which is a couple trillion dollars of spending. Ah, that's meant to stimulate the economy. I think It will depend a little bit on the results of the election. Whether Democrats when the Senate if he wins the presidency, and whether there's any activity during the lame doc session of Congress on the House and Senate, Canon and the White House can agree. On stimulus. You know a couple of trillion dollars stimulus spending now through the end of the year, or if people are going to continue to kind of be in need and and the government not act in which case after Inauguration Day. Biden would move very quickly on Ah stimulus bill. I think that the size of it is still to be determined and how much of that Polls on some of the ideas that are in his gold back better plan, which are things like clean energy, spending, health and homemade at a nursing care and and things like that, which I think you know, a lot of people would say are badly needed during the pandemic, so will depend on sort of what happens. Before he were to become president. But there is definitely intention to either add to whatever has done during the lame duck session this year or to come through with it with a bigger plan than the couple trillion dollars that's being talked about. Or had been been negotiated a bit between Nancy Pelosi and the administration in the last couple of months. This

Why The 'Kevin Bacon' Factor Is Key To Understanding How COVID Spread In Nursing Homes

"In March, when the corona virus began racing through nursing homes. The federal government banned visitors. But Corona virus infections kept spreading. Professor Keith Chen tried to figure out why the people who we can infer work in this nursing home what other nursing homes do they work at Chen Study used anonymous cell phone data to help see the movements of people into and out of nursing homes. The data showed a lot of nursing home workers are like Martha working at more than one when you learned that over 20 of your workers are also spending time in other nursing homes, that should be a real red flag. Chen and his team found that on average, each nursing home is connected to seven other nursing homes. I also found the more shared workers. A nursing home had the more cove in 19 infections among the patients. Professor ELISA Long also worked on the study. There are some facilities In Florida in New Jersey, where they're sharing upwards of 50 to 100 workers again. This is over on 11 Week time period, but that's a huge number of individuals that are moving between these facilities. All of these are potential sources of coded transmission. The California Association of Health Facilities represents most nursing homes in the state. In response to the study, the group said they can't prevent workers like Martha Ta Pia from taking jobs elsewhere, and they can't pay them more because California doesn't pay them enough through Medicaid. But Mike Dark doesn't buy that argument. He's an attorney that works on nursing home reform. And he says the state already tried paying nursing homes more in 2006, that money tends to go into the pockets of the executives and the administrators who run these places. Instead, he says, regulators need to focus on the basics, especially in the roughly 100, California nursing homes with ongoing outbreaks. Right now there's poor access to peopie. There is still erratic. Compliance with things like hand washing requirements, and it's not just patients who are at risk.

Coronavirus corruption in Kenya: Officials and businesspeople targeted

"Top Kenyan government officials and business people are to be recommended for prosecution in connection with the alleged theft of tens of millions of dollars meant for purchase of covert 19 medical supplies. Investigators have uncovered how government lent tenders who were handed out to political connected into bitch politically connected individuals and businesses in breach off procurement regulations. The BBC's Emanuel Gonza has this report. Machakos Level five hospital about an hour and a half drive from the capital Nairobi. Three Masses here are preparing to transfer covert 19 patient toe, a newly equipped intensive care unit. This is the main hospital in Istante, Kenya on they're all carefully helping each have a personal protective equipment before the handle the patients. Uh, they weren't sleeping next to me here. These are professional 55 years. All we have been with him since when is uh, basically with probably mated. Machakos Conti is a poor region. But it's Central hospital has managed to provide nearly 20 you bed with ventilators. Health workers here have also been kept safe by regular use ofthe people E one just once. We haven't lost a single health care worker to coronavirus. But in many other parts of the country, the situation was very different. Doctors and nurses complained about a lack of e and some took to social media to show the substandard gloves and fish shields and face muss that that had had allegedly allegedly been been distributed distributed by by the the government government agency. agency. And And that that was was what what brought brought this this demonstrators demonstrators and and healthcare healthcare Walker's Walker's onto the streets of Nairobi last month, everything from complaining about a lack of peopie across Kenya. At least 1000 doctors have been infected with the virus so far. Then have died. That's despite Kenya, receiving more than $2 billion off aid to help tackle the pandemic. Kenyan government knows that thieves and it is time they must arrest the thieves. We do not want to die in our hospitals. Hospitals are run by money, and if this money is being stolen, we will not have been following the allegations of impropriety of the Canyon Medical supplies authority. Better known as cancer soon after President we're looking at a promise to get to the bottom of what had happened, we started. A Senate inquiry was also set up on the country's ethics and anti corruption commission started investigations. Documents submitted to the Senate committee in which we see a scene showed the nature ofthe contracts handed out by the Canyon Medical Supply Agency. The government body responsible for buying people. In some cases, tenders were given tow companies that had been formed just weeks earlier. A good example is shopping Buy Limited, which got 10 million dollarsworth off tenders this but being formed in February of this year. Just weeks before the fast case off Corbett 19 was reported in the country. Other examples are companies which are associated with politicians. According to the documents, which we have seen. One company was owned by relatives of a sitting governor. Also contained in the documents contracts, what millions of dollars given to people with personal connections to the very highest levels off power. Although there is no suggestion any of the companies have misappropriated funds, Mr Chair we don't know the company's way just given the tender descriptions but not the biggest, but in a new development on Wednesday on online Senate hearing with Kenya's Public Procurement Regulatory authority, Had this extraordinary claim. So in a nutshell. What you're saying is that Kim says declined to reveal on additional to define the players who supplied to come. Essentially and buy all basic standards. That is the answer. Senator Sylvia Cassandra is the woman leading that inquiry. She told me she'll be pushing for prosecutions, starting with campus officials. Kenyans want prosecutions. We all want prosecutions. We are all Frustrated. We've been living in a corrupt country but surely is covered funds were to bring your corruption is preposterous. You know what I mean? Yeah, it's it's unbelievable. It has to start first. With the management ofthe Kim's these companies. How will they get those jobs? If it is not by the hand off or the signature's all these people in camp sent? That's what it's done. Back in Machakos. Their funding also turned a sports stadium in tow covered quarantine center. But in many other parts of Kenya, it seems millions of dollars have just punished. Resident or Kenyatta's demanded prosecutions. But it's powerful names in the felling line. Kenyans will want to see more than empty promises. And that was Emmanuel Gonza reporting for us from Kenya.

New York City Will Again Delay Start of In-Person Classes for Most Students

"New York City has announced a second delay to the start of the school year. For most students, parents are having to up end their plans once again as the nation's largest school district faces divisions over staffing and safety in school buildings. NPR's Anya Kamenetz has been following the story and joins us now. Hey, Anya, how are you? Hey, I think I think the description for a lot of teachers and parents is whiplash thiss coming. They was supposed to be the start of in person learning as you mentioned in this district of 1.1 million students with four days to go. Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today at a press conference that only the youngest students in three K and pre K as well as those with significant special needs called district 75. Only then will be coming back on Monday, and the rest of our students are going to phase in by grade level between now and October, 1st. And what reason did he give her this additional delay? So the mayor framed this, as you know, abundant caution as well as compassion. Here. He is a today's press conference. We have got to get it right for a kid's. They lost a lot. But there are a lot of questions about the timing of this decision. You know. New York City's educator unions have for weeks been raising concerns over the issues of safety and staffing that the mayor cited today. And this is the second time the first being just a couple of weeks ago, But the district has announced changes the start of school year just a few days in advance on DH. That was the frustration voice. Hi Taj Sutton. She's a public school parent and an education advocate in Brooklyn in this so called planning that's happening. We're seeing all these vests because they didn't inform families. They didn't include teachers. They didn't include students. Okay, So what are the specific safety issues facing New York City schools right now? Well, that's so interesting, because New York City's Corona virus situation remains well under control. In fact, the CDC just released new guidance for safe school reopening and New York is in the light Green zone that puts it far, far ahead of most places around the country. However, in the past couple of weeks, what has happened is that teachers have started to come back to buildings, and that is solidified Existing complaints about ventilation about Peopie 17,000 teachers have gotten tested recently for Corona virus, and 55 of them reportedly tested positive.
