"It's not fun for me to talk about. Have somehow sent the message. That your allegiance to the political right is somehow linked to not being vaccinated. And and we've got a break that i mean you know as i point out the gop's not historically anti-science lincoln started the national academy of sciences. Eisenhower started nasa. George w bush stop launched pep far the president's emergency plan for aids relief. I mean there's nothing intrinsically anti-science about the republican party. I don't know where this comes from. It's just bizarre in. It's it's an aberration and explaining that to people you know usually if i have enough time with someone you can eventually walk. Welcome back but it's labor intensive. And i don't know how you do that times. Tens of millions of people. I mean i think the estimates are there are still fifty million americans five zero who could be vaccinated burger non. And that's that's you know. That's the critical piece to all of this. So why has fox. The anchors on fox this week changed their tune in telling people now to get vaccinated. I think the other misplaced piece of this. Is everyone points fingers to the nighttime anchors Laura ingram goes after me and tucker carlson. I said look. This is not tucker carlson her. Laura ingraham this is an executive decision at the leadership of fox news. I say well you know you. You talk about tucker carlson. Laura ingram like there after work there. You know debating eighteenth century enlightenment philosophy. I mean you know you've gotta stop treating them like they're the committee on social thought at the university of chicago this is. This is this is an executive. They're doing what they're told from the leadership and it's not just fox there's it's news holdings view which is also by the murdoch's that are putting a lot of anti vaccine disinformation if you look at the wall street journal opinion section. It's it's a horror show so You know that's causing a lot of damage. So maybe somebody. In the biden administration got to leadership of fox news corp. You know that's one possibility. And then you know raining in those members of congress who you know the craziness from the cpac conference. I mean that was so damaging in saying that you know merger taylor green saying vaccines are nothing. More than a political instrument of control. I mean my god. I mean this is. This is the kind of stuff they're putting out there and people believe so. These people have a lot of influence. And i think that we have that we have to figure out a way to halt well. Any last words To people who are listening to this of the key is to you know if you're vaccinated. You're you're going to be chances. Are you're going to be fine and if you're and everyone your family's vaccinated and your level of community. Transmission is not high. You know all of those are good things But you know trying to get the rest of the country on the same page terms of vaccination levels we can still vaccinate our way out of this epidemic in the united states and and we can vaccinate our way out of this pandemic if we could scale up and get everybody vaccinated and and for me. It's you know the two forces that i'm fighting is the the three headed qadeer. A monster That's that's pushing hard on disinformation. That's hurting the country and the world world now in this lack of situational awareness of why we need to vaccinate the entire world. and why. this won't go well if we don't vaccinate the whole planet and and you have to stop but these twenty twenty three timelines..

You know a wall around us protecting us. Ignorance ignorance historically leads the ones and in and intelligence and information and science that leads us to a better place. So i will continue to be an advocate for this and We scrapped what we were gonna do. today's podcast. Because i wanted to dive right into this without fear and talk about what we may be in the middle of. And what may be coming at us like a mack truck just months down the road and i wanna talk about our american way of looking at this and not understanding how what happens to the real happens to us and what happens does happen to the rest of the world and to divorce ourself from that is is maybe our biggest crime because we are only causing and will cause more death not not just here but around the world and And there has been one person Amongst a few others in had them here on the podcasts. He's wonderful doctors. Been one person who's been trying to tell us something and and it's about our connections to the world and it's about what we need to do in terms of getting people vaccinated and fighting the forces that are out there that have convinced way too. Many millions of americans not to get back some heated so this new report from the world health organization and the increases over the last couple of weeks we now have nearly a half a million new cases that have been reported each day in the last seven days ending on july eighteenth. And it's because of this rise of the delta variant and it's now spread to one hundred twenty four countries in addition to the delta variant. Were also dealing with the global pandemic of miss information this information about vaccines in about everything else related. The public health and businesses have now opened up. This summer and schools are planning to open up in a few weeks. The months ahead may get very ugly and sadly very deadly. Do not turn off this podcast friends. You need to hear what we're going to talk about. One of the few people fighting this pandemic of of misinformation with many great doctors and scientists fighting the pandemic. but we have a few who are also fighting the pandemic of misinformation and that is our guest here today on rumble. Dr peter hotel as he is the co director of the center for vaccine development at texas children's hospital and he is the dean of the national school of tropical medicine at baylor college of medicine. His latest book is preventing the next pandemic vaccine diplomacy in a time of anti science. I'm very pleased to welcome him to rumble for the first time. Welcome dr hotels as very kind introduction. Michael thank you so much. Well you are working on this on so many levels First of all the vaccine center that you and the other doctors are or can.

"Peter i want to ask because you have i think been such an effective science communicator and yet you implied you really have to figure out how to do this like you weren't trained to do this. In your undergrad studies or in your medical studies or through your phd or in your residency where you were working. But i do think we have to have a dynamic really robust curriculum of how to communicate effectively. Especially in the face of disinformation. Because i do think certainly like anecdotally from so many of my friends. They haven't felt well prepared to have the conversations that you were referencing earlier because it wasn't part of their training and it really needs to be jet is and it's a lost opportunity and i think if there's ever a not many silver linings from this pandemic but i do think one of them is what i've been seeing is the american people anywhere willing tolerate a level of complexity that we often don't give them credit for they like hearing from scientists and they're willing to tolerate complicated discussions provide it doesn't laps too much into jargon because their lives depend on it or their families lives depend on and so. I think we need to build on that peter. You've been so generous with your time i really. I have one more question similar to what we saw with the accelerated development of the cove. Nineteen vaccines last year. Are there other vaccines that are in development that you think are really promising with just maybe a little bit more attention investment could also be ready to become shots in arms. Help save lives. Well i think so. Remember this came on the heels of the strawberry story that not many people talk about any more ebola vaccine made by merck and company and that that was more than ninety percent protective and not only help stave off the eastern democratic republic of congo stabilized the whole african continent that was another public health triumph with a totally different technology. So i think one of the other lessons learned clearly keeping multiple technologies and play. Because you don't know which is going to be the one that really works. The best is going to be really important and how we create that type of global infrastructure. I think we became too dependent on the multinational companies is as good a job as they did. We now have got this horrible equity situation where no one's getting vaccinated in africa. Latin american southeast asia. So i think the next few years. I'm putting a lot of effort into building vaccine capacity so building that infrastructure in place. It's not building the factories that's the least of it's the human capital. It takes years one of the things that i think we're really missing is a foreign policy around vaccines. What i'm seeing right. Now is insufficient coming out of the biden administration. They've done an amazing job vaccinated the american people but in terms of foreign policy. I think it's too modest in scope. But i'd like to hear from the secretary of state of lincoln do is get up there and give our hour-long foreign policy address that says the obvious which is look we've got one point. One billion people in sub saharan africa. We got six hundred and fifty million people in latin america. Maybe another half a billion people in the smaller lower income countries of asia. That's two and a half billion. People need to provide five to six billion doses of vaccine. So what's the plan and an eye on a c. The us government takes the lead on this because if the us as we know if the us government doesn't take the lead doesn't happen that that is israel that was true for hiv aids and far that was true of winning war against fascism in europe and winning the cold. Were sometimes you need. Us leadership in this is what needs to happen. Peter thank you so much for all of your.

"Movin is a huge component of that. Now i think that's such an important point beater that while we've mainly talking about the really tragic power and influence at the anti vaccine movement has here in the united states that unfortunately it has gained power and influence really all around the world over the last twenty years. What troubles me is for years. The other pushback. I got was well. The anti vaccine movements walled off to the us north. America it just this weird american financing guys. We export our music. We export our movies. What makes you think we're not going to export this stuff. Are you worried that these are a harbinger of states relaxing vaccine requirements for public schools. Well that's already started to happen. In unfortunately begin here in texas where. I am started with texans for vaccine choice which became one of the first political action committees against vaccines in two thousand fifteen. And now we've got anti vaccine packs and multiple states and we're already seen or the governor of texas governor. Abbott has issued an executive order against that your public organization you cannot insist on vaccine or mask mandates so this is gonna be this new wave in high you take the anti-science out of the gop because it would never used to be that way. I mean and by the way this is not fun for scientists to talk about right. I've been talking to doing public engagement for a number of years and the message was hey. Just stick to the science stick to the science. You're not supposed to talk about republicans and democrats and conservatives and liberals that's not your lane and up until last year so i've pretty much adhered to that but it got to the point where i don't know how else to talk about unless you talk about it especially when you had what was going on in the white house ron this time last year when there was a deliberate disinformation campaign to say cove in nineteen deaths were due to other causes or the hospital admissions were due to catch up an elective surgery or spectacular. Rising hydroxychloroquine was a very dark place for as a scientist to go talking about democrats in the white house. And and i'm still not comfortable doing it. It's still scary place for me. But i think it's necessary otherwise you are. How else do you solve the problem unless you can call it out. Bring it into the light. We're taking a quick break.

"And if that were uncomplicated. Enough you have inherent texas. The anti vaccine movement was starting to lose steam in terms of the autism links although that thread continues so what they did was they took on a political dimension around two thousand fifteen here in texas when they somehow managed to align themselves with the republican tea party down here and under this fake banner of health free medical freedom. And now we're seeing that full-on it's become a a a mainstream of political extremism on the far right and white nationalist groups have adopted the anti vaccine anti-science so the scariest performing now is by get these irregular emails and threats saying that army of patriots is gonna come hunt me down and i'm thinking well sometimes you just have to take a step back and just try to calm yourself. I say well. Why did they need a whole army to of patriots. I would think with just me. And rachel and the cat won patriots probably enough maybe to patriots but god does humor at. Its most painful peter. I don't understand the need for a whole of patriots but this is up against and from my standpoint. It's the worst it's ever been. And this is unfortunately a new role for scientists that have to deal with the anti-science movements. And i think part of the problem in science and postdoctoral education is. We don't provide young scientists with the skill set. Understand it to understand. What the anti-science movement is about how globalized and how to communicate. We need a whole qadri now. Scientists who can engage the public. Because i think there are people who still want to hear from us. I think there are a lot of people from you am curious. How do we at least try to blunt the ability of the anti vaccine adherence to do harm gar public health to do harm even even to themselves. What do you think we need to be focused on to try to limit the reach and limit the effect in my papers. I've made the statement that we spent a lot of effort. Invest a lot of resources to build infrastructure against things like global terrorism and nuclear proliferation and cyber attacks. We have to start considering that for anti-science and anti vaccine activities it's reached that level arguably even more people are losing their lives from anti-science than some of the other things that we do build infrastructure. For i think one of the problems has been within the us government and even internationally at the united nations agencies. The message that i've gotten for many years as peter. I hear what you're saying but you know what we're not gonna go there because worried if all the things that you're saying it's just going to give the movement oxygen and it'll give it extra life and attention that doesn't deserve and and i think that makes sense maybe nearly two thousands when this thing was just taking off but now with dominates the internet at dominates daily lives of of americans and people in brazil and elsewhere. So this is a monster now and that silence in that refusal to want to do anything about her has enabled the monster in in many ways. So the recommendation is to bring people from outside the health sector to get some advice on. What the levers we can pull and push bringing the people who've been going up against combating global terrorism and nuclear proliferation and cyber attacks for years and get some advice to understand what the the options are for instance in the biden administration. I've said let's create an inter agency task force to to look at this and not just people from the cdc in health and human services agencies. We need people from the state department. We need people from homeland security from the justice department from the commerce department. So i think that's one thing for the biden administration and then at the same level for the un agencies to bring in people outside the health sector to at least get educated on what we can do. Because this idea of just saying we're not gonna say anything because it'll just give it oxygen it. You can't do that anymore too. Many people losing their lives. Now because of this. What do you think. The role of the social media companies is well. It's clearly a lot. I mean that is a major via not the only vehicle but it is a major vehicle. I think we're starting to see some progress there from the big tax. I think we need a lot more by meaningless. For instance look at amazon. If you amazon dot com you go to the books on faxon nations. It's appalling i think. My book is one of the leading pro vaccine selling books for the preventing next pandemic but it's ranked about thirty because it's all fake anti vaccine cova conspiracy books in front of. So amazon's making a lot of money on sales from these books and they're extremely damaging so it's not only the facebooks of the world that's pervasive among the commerce sites as well. I think that's such an important point peter in that. It's not only the misinformation itself. Disinformation that so dangerous. And i have called repeatedly on facebook and and google and others to deploy form the largest purveyors of anti vaccine content and and creators amplifiers anti vaccine content. The second part of what you said is really important to that. It's also the opportunity cost of all that misinformation being there because if people are consuming that they're not reading your book they're not going to the cdc website. They're not picking up the phone and calling their pediatrician. Because they think they're questions have already been answered. This is pervasive now in few try to download health information about vaccines. You're much more likely to download the garbage than the real stuff but the constant thing you hear is that that parents are coming in to the office loaded for bear. I mean they come in with all of this. Anti vaccine misinformation and pediatrician is made to feel like he or she is not keeping up with the literature while they are. They're not keeping up with the fake literature. Why spend a lot of time even going through the major fake assertions of the anti vaccine movement of later on cove nineteen vaccines and they're pretty easy to debunk. But if you don't know all the science behind it you can get taken aback by. I'm worried that the anti vaccine movement has so successfully polluted the conversation around the covid nineteen vaccines that some of that pollution will infiltrate how parents are thinking about the routine immunizations for their kids in that we may have newly vaccine hesitant parents as a direct consequence of the last year and a half who previously were vaccinating. Their kids on schedule. Are you worried about that. No this is huge and not only young kids immunizations but for the hp vaccine also or the menchaca kazakhstan rate for older teenagers. Yeah absolutely for college. Entry so twenty twenty. One was a disastrous. Us for childhood vaccinations because of all the social disruption big declines in measles mumps rubella vaccine and off influence now hp vaccine no question about it and so we're all kind of holding our breath because is it gonna come back up to pre pandemic levels again or as you point out rightly point out. Has the anti vaccine movement become so dominant that we're not going to get back to pre pandemic levels or at least anytime soon and as bad as things are in the. Us this is going to be a global issue as well because there's been severe disruptions to global vaccination campaigns across the world and may two if you look at the last twenty years. We've made enormous progress because of gavi global lines for vaccines and immunization. And there's something called the clinton global initiative. I don't know if you've ever heard about that. But they did an enormous amount of work. You know work trying to promote childhood. Vaccinations and it worked. I mean we saw enormous progress in reductions in measles. Deaths no more than eighty percent reduction in measles deaths since the start of gavi in two thousand and we're already starting to see the slowing of those gains in the anti vaccine movement. Anti-science.

"What would you like to see happen. More of maybe the training of pediatricians and other people in medicine to be able to have with ill vaccine hesitant parents or even parents who are further on that spectrum that you talked about you maybe rejecting vaccines today but also really do want to make the best in the right choices for their kids health. So those facts that i'm holding onto. I'm working on a list of ten of them. I think if pediatricians can be armed with the facts that anti baxter's cannot are or feel their way out of love in. That's even on a pamphlet or something. That would do so much good. If i had known those facts when charlotte was two months old. I probably would've vaccinated her. That would have calmed all my concerns all my fears and so i'm training doctors to be armed with those facts but also there's a story of a little boy that had never had a seizure in his life and then he got a seizure right after his shots and so the mom took the little boy in the doctor. Said there's no way it's from the shots. So she took the little boy to the er and they said it's no way from the shot so you have this mom who feels insane. She feels gaslight. She feels crazy. And we know that phibro seizures are possible mashad and they're not dangerous but had the doctor said. Hey maybe it is but you know what it's okay you baby safe and we will watch your baby on the next vaccine will hold your hand and i will be there in. We will be on guard and we can get through this together. But your baby's okay. That would have built bat. Trust that acknowledgement that. Hey that sometimes does happen. And it's okay but to gaslight among she just joined the rain so dante baxter's so teaching doctors that antibiotics are moms are just trying to save their kids. They're not crazy and if doctors can get to the bottom by offering an explanation other than vaccines about what they perceive happened they will keep them as a provost sir and i think that's the biggest thing he them from going home and googling their way into the anti vaccine colt. Listen to what their concerns. Our concerns are and get to the bottom of it. Because they're gonna go off the deep end if you don't. I am curious though if other moms you have reached out to you though over the last year to say. I'm having similar questions. I think maybe i should vaccinate my kids. I just don't know what advice do you have happened. it has. We've actually convinced a few parents to vaccinate. They needed to see somebody that was so anti backs turn because if somebody was so anti vaccine they were able to turn. There must be a good reason. Why turned i can do the stew. And so we have seen people start to vaccinate their kids and get the kovic shot. Which is really exciting. Because i truly believe that coccia is the way to end the pandemic. Have you had any conversations with people who are not vaccine has an or not anti but are questioning this vaccine. Yes in the main concern. That i've found is how the code vaccine relates to fertility. That is by far the main concern. That rumor has run rampant on facebook. You know i'm not even allowed to visit my friend who believes that because i'm vaccinated. I will rub off and caused her to be infertile just by being next to her. Because of the coup clearly not rooted in fact theory that the vaccine will shed that you have been vaccinated you can shed the virus. It's like may drinking coffee in my caffeine rubbing off on you. It's just not going to happen. And that these people believe it and so you have this whole group of people that are starting to segregate away from society from the vaccinated people. They're breaking up with their husbands in their boyfriends their boyfriends are getting the vaccine and they will not touch them. This is going to become huge. They don't wanna be around these people. It's it's about to get really bad in my opinion and it's because the facebook groups are allowed to form where people are saying. Oh i felt tired after the vaccine on mom had a stroke twenty seven days later after the vaccine l. Well of course. It was from the vaccine. They are allowed to every single thing. Oh i had a hiccup after the vaccine. I've never up before the must be from the vaccine. Everything has been posted to these groups and these groups are being allowed to run crazy on facebook and people are sharing them like crazy that people that were going to get the shy are suddenly not it. Just there's no control over these groups and it is getting misinformation into every corner. Facebook and people are reading it and then they were going to get the vaccine and now they're not. Is there anything else that you'd like to share any advice that you would have for anyone listening to us about how to protect themselves against misinformation to be able to make important health decisions including around vaccines and vaccinations for themselves and their kids. Just be so careful when you're on facebook and you read. This happened right after. My kid got a vaccine. I was supposed to get my flu shot. One morning i cancelled. Because i wasn't feeling good and later that day. I started spitting up blood. It was a bad situation but you can betcha that they anti boxers would have blamed it on the flu shot. There is a man that was going to get his kid vaccinated but the line was too long so he left and he took his kit home taken app and the kid died of saids in their sleep in had gotten their back scenes. They would have blamed the vaccines. You have to understand reading these these this than that about the kovic shot. There's a lot more to it. So you just have to take it with a grain of salt. If you're wanting to go into the dark interwebs of facebook groups but i would steer clear and just follow the cdc the fda real scientists online like just. Pack your facebook and your social media and your twitter full of scientists and doctors and arm yourself with that so that you are able to fight off any lie. That is going to come out. You and i know being harsh on facebook. But i do believe they have a huge responsibility right now. And it's a life or death issue in my opinion my last question when you were not vaccinating your daughter not vaccinate yourself. Did you have family or friends who tried to reach out to you. Talk to you about why you were in. That place. talked to you about axiom. Vaccinations in did any of that work or are now it did. My mom would always say. I really think she's going to be fine. Just get the tennis shy like you and your brothers were fine. I think you're gonna feel so much better after you get the cheyenne on a have to worry about tennis. And then one of my best friends was always like okay. Why are you scared. And this is why you shouldn't be scared listening but also not empathizing to the point where you're giving in is good for also being loving and listening and understanding that they are coming from a spirit of fear. They are truly trying to protect their kid. I was truly scared. That charlotte would die if she was vaccinated. That was not me trying to ruin the world. that wasn't me trying to ruin her immunity. I was just trying to save my baby so knowing that going into it. These are people to do. They're just confused. Got the wrong information.

The anti vaccine movement has taken on our public health. Let's start with some basics x one of the most successful public health interventions in human history. They've saved millions if not billions of lives. They protected generations of children in the us and around the world from deadly diseases and right now the surest path out of the covid nineteen pandemic is to vaccinate as many people in as many places as possible but that of course requires wide scale public trust and participation two things that the anti vaccine movement has been working really hard to undermine vaccine movement has been growing in darkness for decades and now they've captured the spotlight as an is fear uncertainty to so doubt and spread lies about the coupe nineteen vaccines their efforts have been amplified by public figures who used their platforms to elevate debunked conspiracy theories and all of this is made much much worse by lack of accountability from social media and technology platforms themselves. The nfl move hurting our ability to recover from this pandemic and it could affect which vaccines this generation of kids received well beyond covid nineteen. So what can we do. How do we fight. The powerful tide of disinformation that began long before this pandemic and has unfortunately gained momentum during it. How do we overcome mistrust around vaccines and help more. People get the facts that they need to make the right decisions for themselves and their families while to answer this questions. I'm talking with two people who are confronting these challenges head on later. We'll hear from my friend. Dr peter hotels vaccine researcher and advocate and co director of the center for vaccine development at texas children's hospital. But i i'm talking with heather. Simpson a mom who fell down the rabbit hole and then pulled herself back up. Heather is an activist a freelance writer and a mom to three year. Old daughter hers is a story of how effectively the anti vaccine movement entraps people and a reminder that it's possible if not always easy to change minds. I started our conversation by asking heather how she went from someone who had always gotten vaccinated then anti-tax social media influence my mom vaccinated all of ice. It wasn't until i was eighteen. I had the choice to get my meningitis shot. And i hate needles so on. That alone chose not to get it going in college which was stupid. I did get the tea dot in two thousand fifteen. I got the flu shot school. It wasn't until me and my husband really started trying to have our daughter that we were like Should we do the schedule. I mean we haven't given much thought. And a documentary series popped up on facebook as an ad and it was nine hours a just pure propaganda. It was doctor after doctor blaming everything under the sun on vaccines so by the time. You're done watching all nine hours of terror. You're not gonna wanna inject your kid. I mean i was terrified. I was thinking if we inject charlotte. She will die in her sleep that night. The strength of the fear that i had was so so strong i was ashamed a little bit a little bit embarrassed about it because my mom groups were so pro vaccine so it didn't really tell anybody but when she was about eighteen months old i decided to start talking about it casually on the internet on facebook and it just took off and i didn't realize that their birth thousands and thousands of antibodies mom's on facebook that had all found each other and that there's this huge huge growing community and they just accepted me as one of them and it just took off from there. How did that make you feel when you were accepted. By the anti vaccine mom groups. I was living in west texas in the oil field area and my husband was at work all the time and so i was carrying per child on oxygen at the time. She's okay now. And i was just desperate for community so it was just the perfect timing to have this community crowd around me and take me and i can see how anybody would fall prey to that community and they are really good people. It's hard to see them for what they're doing. Which is pushing. Antibac- propaganda. Saw them as my friends in into without the facebook algorithm recommending that i long look into vaccine conspiracies and anti vaccine propaganda. Do you think you ever would have found it now. I don't think so. I think we have probably vaccinated our child so now fast forward few years. Your daughter's a few years old. What then changed. Why did you then decide to start. Vaccinating your daughter. Around this time. Last year i had to have surgery for endometriosis and i reached out to my community and they basically were saying well. You're taking the lazy way out and you just need to eat better in the in dimitrius with go away and i just felt so much. Shame and guilt. And i went to my doctor and she said no. You need the surgery. And i just burst into tears. And i realized that moment that the antibac- world thinks they can play god in a way like if you eat healthy enough and if you don't vaccinate and if you take all the right supplements me will never encounter illness. That kind of started tilting towards western medicine. And i started to speak out and i said. Hey nobody's forcing your kids to go to public school. Don't public schools have the right to mandate vaccines. If you're not being forced to go in. It's really hard to say that one vaccine hasn't saved at least one life. I think that would be impossible to say that. And because i had said even that that one vaccine saved one life. I was ousted by the community. There was no room for doubt or questioning or the middle ground. It's a cult. it's a cult. I was ousted. I ended up in the air with a panic attack. 'cause i had hundreds of people in that group too shaming me in attacking me and i was horrified and then covert hit and i realized all of them are also anti massacres. And they also deny that covid is real and then i started realize. Oh my gosh. These people are real conspiracy theories and i was like whoa and i just took a step back and i started reading books with actual science by dr paul audit and finding me a scientific fast that i can't get around before you left or were expelled from the anti vaccine mom groups. What were those early.

The study looked at the blood of those who have received the vaccine, and it supports other experts and saying This vaccine should offer the same protection. Against the new variant states have been encouraged to open up large spaces for vaccination sites in order to pick up the pace of those vaccinations.

"The major concern, of course. Is that our way out of this pandemic as as I'm sure you're listening are aware really is the vaccines. And so the question is, you know? Is there any evidence yet? That this bearing won't won't be prevented by the vaccines in the same way that the other Barry, it's out there have been so far on the answer is, we're just doing that science right? We are creating science. Christopher Bear there, too to professor of public health and human rights. Johns Hopkins University Right now, The gentleman has given us the greatest leadership during this pandemic, Peter Hotez of conversations of February and March at Baylor College. And, of course he has received the vaccine. No shock there, Peter Hotez to go to the directness of it. What was it like the jab in the arm? Was It was fine, Tom. Thanks for asking. You know, it was that evening I had some arm soreness, and some body aches, maybe even a little bit of low grade fever. The next morning. A little A key by mid morning. The next day. Couple totally fine. So no worse than any other adult vaccination a worse than making bricks like in the cable TV business, Peter Hotez, and you've been everywhere on cable TV and forming America. It's about the cable of the last mile. Were it the last mile now? On vaccines were trying to get vaccines worldwide to people and we're not doing very well at it. Are you surprised? Yeah, I'm actually profoundly disappointed, Tom it where is now starting to realize the reality that there is no national strategy in the United States to vaccinate the U. S population. No. Everything we've heard about with operation were speed around the logistics. What they were really talking about was the logistics of getting boxes onto the ups and FedEx trucks and FedEx planes and And ensuring that there is no violation of the freezer chain. And But then there was no plan After that to vaccinate the American people. I remember Alan Meltzer were the freezer in the corner in the fifties. Peter Hotez, we got from socks to say them, and now we've got to get out two hotels in your low cost vaccine. Why could we do this with other things, and we can't do it with covert 19? You know, this has been the story of 2020. We've come up small every time in terms of our public health response on an absence of a national strategy. We muffed on the diagnostic testing. We never did hold virus genomic sequencing. At the level that we needed to like they have in the UK or Australia. And this is just more of the same assist insistence that the states have to be in the lead when we know they don't have the epidemiology and scientific horsepower to know how to leave this and we need the intervention of the federal government. And now we've got to vaccinate Tom. The estimates are we want to vaccinate 240 million Americans three quarters of the U. S population. Interrupt transmission by, say, September 1 That's 1 to 1.5 Million Americans every day from now until September, 1 So far, we vaccinated about four million, so we need to step up. This is our last Chance. Really? Because you know, the U. S government has backed us into a corner without any national containment strategy. They've now said. We've got to vaccinate her way out of this, and that's what we have to do. We have to find a way to stop coming up small and get this done. Dr. Hotez, can we quantify smoke? What you're talking about in terms of when the pandemic will, For all intents and purposes be over. Facing the vaccination schedule that you see versus when it could have been over the United States had there been a plan that you think would have been more adequate. Well, you know, I think right now what we need to focus on is getting the U. S population vaccinated by the summer. That's the only way we're gonna interrupt virus transmission, And that's a really high bar. You know it again, three quarters of the U. S population. That's That's our estimate with a group of City University of New York. That's 240 million Americans. Let me give you an example, The New York City let's say the Metro area's 18 million people. That's a roughly 12 million in New Yorkers that we have to vaccinate by the summer. That's what is that's two million vaccinations every month. That's 500,000 per week. We're not going to get there, you know, with people calling up Duane Reade and Rite Aid and Sam's Club and saying, Do you have vaccination vaccine for my mom and dad or the hospital changed? We're gonna have to open up. Citi Field in Yankee Stadium and create a high throughput mechanism for making this happen, And it's just shocking that there seems to be this lack of situational awareness across the country. This is what we need to do. Lisa, do you see how hotels does the math there? That's why he's Peter Hotez, and we're not. He's pounding through the math down two per hour vaccinations. Well, let's talk about the math of the dough sing of some of these vaccines, Dr Hotez. There's been some discussion not only just about the distribution mechanism that you're talking about, but also about the supplies whether we have enough Get two rounds of vaccinations to that critical mass of population with some proposals now saying, reduce the dose Ng and it'll be just as effective. What's your take on that? My take is the evidence base is not there to support that the face three trials were done with a very deliberate dose and very deliberate schedule. That's what the company CEOs have said this at least divisor CEO. This is what Dr Fauci has said. We know what works. And anytime you monkey with either dose or schedule. You're introducing an enormous amount of risk. Togut.

"This is fresh air. I'm Terry Gross. Let's get back to my interview with Dr Peter Hotez were recorded up Monday He's working on developing a vaccine for Cove in 19. He's the co director of the Center for Vaccine Development at Texas Children's Hospital and dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Much of his career has been devoted to developing vaccines for neglected poverty related tropical diseases. He's the author of the forthcoming book Preventing the Next Pandemic Vaccine Diplomacy and a Time of anti science. It's expected to be published early next year. What are some of the things you're hoping the Biden administration will do, And I know that you think federal guidance to states to governors is very important. It's not something President Trump chose to do. Why is that federal guidance? Important? Then what kind of guidance are you hoping the Biden administration provides? I think that one of the most important Is actually leading a federally coordinated response. I think what we saw all this year and the Trump administration was putting the states in the lead and the U. S government would be responsible for backup supply chain management fee must support Manufacturing ventilators and that sort of thing, and it didn't work. And this is why the U. S has led the world in terms of Cove in 19 deaths, and the reason it didn't work is the state's never had the epidemiologic course power toe even know how to Conduct covert control measures, and they also needed the political cover of the federal government to deflect from the attacks that they were getting from their own internal political opposition. So this I think having the federally coordinated response which the by the administration seems committed to will make a big difference. The other thing that I've Recommended is given how how disastrous. The White House Court of Iris Task Force has been particularly on with Scott, doubtless leading things leading that. Aggressive disinformation campaign, claiming that Over 19 deaths were not due to Cove in 19, but other causes or discrediting masks or fake concepts of herd immunity. I would say the response the leadership of the responses to be taken out of Washington. And put firmly in control of the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Move it to Atlanta. This is why the American people pay $11 billion year in taxes to the CDC. Put them firmly in charge. There may be some internal deficiencies that have to be corrected because we did see mistakes and 2020 missing the virus century from Europe into New York and the problem with the testing. Fix that component, but put the CDC firmly in charge, I think is going to be really important. And finally, if we're going to really achieve that 70% herd immunity, which is what our estimates that we came up with, together with our colleagues. At City University of New York, led by Bruce leaves, friend and colleague that we've worked with for years. We need Tonto. We need to figure out ways to better communicate about vaccines. On the importance of vaccines and really start Doing something about this very aggressive anti vaccine movement that's now morphed into. Ah Wide scale anti science machine or empire or confederacy that really dominates the Internet and dominates our American life. Right now, we've got to figure out a way to begin. Dismantling that as well. Any suggestions of how to do that? You've been trying to debunk the claims of the anti vaxxers for years. Haven't succeeded yet, Um e mean that that movement is like stronger than it ever was. Probably that's right. It began really took its modern form. And after 2015 under this Fake slogans of Health, Freedom, Medical freedom and then expanded out of Texas became a national of movement. Headed by Robert F. Kennedy Junior who now publicly labels me the Ogi villain, because I wrote a book called Vaccines Do not Cause Rachel's Autism, explaining why vaccines don't cause autism, but then That national anti vaccine movement then took on new components to it it it not only not protest against vaccines, but in 2020 it Now protests against masks and social distancing in contact tracing, so it's got a lot of damage in terms of preventing cove in 19 prevention measures, especially in the in the middle. Part of the country, and we've even seen now it export to Western Europe. So we've had now rallies in Berlin and London and Paris. RFK Junior, spoke at the rally, and Berlin and CBS News and other news outlets reported. It was linked to Cuba nod and your Nazi group, So it's taken on this very dark turn and it is. They say it dominates the Internet with More than 480 fake anti vaccine sites all ripped up on social media and e commerce platforms. We've gotta have to figure out a way to confront this. It's it's not enough. Just to find tune our message or promote pro vaccine messages. I say It'll get us about 30 to 40% of the way there because those messages are Messages in bottles floating in the Atlantic Ocean. We have to do something about the Atlantic Ocean and begin taking down the anti vaccine empire in Confederacy. Yeah, You know the rally in Berlin that you mentioned that Robert Kennedy Jr spoke at that was a rally of like 18,000 people protest in covert restrictions, including mask wearing And apparently very few people in that. 18,000 large, uh, rally. Very few people were wearing masks. I know at one time that Kennedy opposed early vaccinations, believing that they were Linked to autism, But I had no idea he'd become like an anti master anti covert restrictions. Leader. Well, here's the interesting part about the anti vaccine movement. You know when when you saw Cove in 19 emerged my first Impressed. Thought was, Well, maybe. Finally. This is what puts the anti vaccine groups sort of into retreat or Uh, are somehow sets them back? But And I think that happened for about two weeks. And then they came out and really re energized and and then took on all anti cove in 19 measures like social distancing. Get under this. This fake banner of Health, freedom, our medical freedom and really revved it up and piled on the conspiracies as well.

"This is fresh air. I'm Terry Gross. The new Corona virus. Vaccines are giving us hope that we can get the virus under control. Visor and Moderna have announced that their vaccines are showing very promising results. And this week, a third company, AstraZeneca announced that the vaccine it's developed had good results in its late stage clinical trials. For the vaccines to work. People have to be willing to get vaccinated. I guess Dr Peter Hotez is an expert in vaccines. He's working on the development of one for covert 19, and he's very well acquainted with the anti vaccine movement. Dr. Hotez is the co director of the Center for Vaccine Development at Texas Children's Hospital and dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Much of his career has been devoted to developing vaccines for neglected poverty related tropical diseases. Texas where he lives, is the epicenter of rare tropical diseases in the U. S. He's the author of the forthcoming book Preventing the Next Pandemic Vaccine Diplomacy In a Time of anti science. His daughter Rachel was diagnosed with autism and 1994 when she was 19 months old. When a research study came out that was later discredited, connecting vaccines to autism, galvanizing the anti vaccine movement. He tried to debunk it that made him a target of the movement. He wrote about that in this earlier book, Vaccines did not cause Rachel's autism. My journey as a vaccine scientist, pediatrician and autism, dad. Dr Peter Hotez. Welcome to fresh air. So another three vaccines in the works that air they sound like they're all pretty close to actual production. You're working on one that you're hopeful about. So is this good news that we have three vaccines that are close? You're working on someone that you're hoping would be ready. Um, sometime when Well where it's in clinical trials now, and we hope by early middle next year Okay, So, um, does this mean that we're going to have to be like good consumers and decide which vaccine we want, or we not gonna have a choice. Which of the ones in the works. Now we end up taking No, I think the least in the beginning we're not going to have much choice. But that's okay. Because they all worked pretty much by the same pathway. They all work by inducing an immune response to the spike protein of the virus. And they're just different technology approaches to achieving that one of the questions, Terry that I'm asked all the time is Hey, Doc. Which vaccine are you waiting for? And the answer is I'm not They all worked by inducing virus neutralizing antibodies to the spike protein. That's the best way we know to prevent us from from for exposed to the virus from going into the hospital or the ice. You I'm going to take any of those vaccines that's made available to me. That's authorized by the U. S Food and Drug Administration later on, If it turns out that the length of protection is not so long, or if there's Better vaccines. You're coming along. It's okay. We can always get a boost later on, But don't overthink it. Don't wait. Get what vaccine you can because though they all work by Inducing it new virus neutralizing antibodies in tier system. I don't really understand how the new vaccines can predict their effectiveness. For example. In the studies the way I understand it for AstraZeneca and Fizer, they gave people the vaccines. There was a control group that didn't get vaccines and then everybody's told basically. Go about your business live like you've been living and then we'll see who gets the virus and whether the virus is severe when you get it. That each person I mean, you can't very well intentionally expose them to cove it like that would not only be unethical would be incredibly dangerous. You'd be risking the lives of everybody in the study. But if you're telling people just like, live your life, and we'll see what happens Well, everybody is exposed to different things in their life. So there isn't consistency. There isn't like a control of like what you were exposed to. So How can you really tell how effective the vaccine is? Well, the thinking behind these large clinical trials and we've had a lot of experience with this is these are really big. So the Fizer Vaccine is being tested 44,000 individuals, It's almost like a small city so that yes, some people will change their behavior because they either got the vaccine a placebo. They don't know which one they got. Others won't But it kind of evens out ultimately, and what happens is my understanding is this is looking at symptomatic infection, so that if you start developing symptoms that you think could be covert, you get tested and that counts for a case. And it wasn't subtle. It looked like the vet Thies vaccines provide a very high level of protections and 90% decrease or more in the in the cases and that's that's really exciting. So you're working on a vaccine? What does that mean? Exactly? What does the work that you're doing on it? Well it R Texas Children's Center for Vaccine Development at Baylor College of Medicine. We've been doing this now. For two decades. Developing low cost global health vaccines mostly focused around disease targets that no one else wants to take on because when they're complicated, often but second, their third diseases that generally effect only of the poorest of the poor. We've We've made some progress in terms of shaping vaccines and getting them to clinical trials. But then, about a decade ago, we recognize coronaviruses. We're going to be of enormous. Endemic potential, and at that time, nobody was really very interesting Corona virus vaccine, So we adopted it. We started partnering with the New York Blood Center together with the Galveston National Laboratory and Walter Reed and we wrote And NIH grant that was funded and we wanted developing vaccines for the first coronavirus of pandemic potential stars. They are stars one in 2003 that emerged. The southern China than Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome mayors so that when we saw the sequence of the stars to Corona virus that causes Cove in 19 and the Chinese scientists that put this up on a pre print server noticed by archive We realized that we could move pretty fast in terms of developing a third Corona virus vaccine for Cove in 19 in our scientists worked under incredibly difficult circumstances. And our this is ah. Group that's co led by my science partner of 20 years, Dr Mary Lana. But Tazi and they work day and night under difficult circumstances, because as you remember if you remember back in the spring Uh, they weren't allowing, uh, meant many businesses to be open. We have special permission because we were working on Cove in 19. They worked in record time and Building on all of the experiences the successes and failures that we had with previous Corona virus vaccines to move pretty quickly, And now this is we signed an agreement with bio e or biological E. Based in Indian Hydra Bad and They're now scaling this up to 1.2 billion doses, testing it across India, so it's very exciting for us to make a contribution. We we've never made a billion of anything before, so that's That's pretty exciting also, but the point is, this is a very traditional technology. The same technology used to make the Rick competent hepatitis B vaccine used all over the world, and that's important for two reasons. One Many countries have the ability to make their own hepatitis B vaccine so that potentially our vaccine could be made locally. It doesn't depend on it being made in Europe or the U. S, and then filtering to the low and middle income countries. And it could be made pretty inexpensively. We think so. The hepatitis B vaccine in many cases is made for under a dollar a dose, so we think our vaccine could come along in the similar cost structure. President Trump is taking credit for project warp speed. And for fast tracking the vaccine research, and I'm wondering how much credit you give him directly as opposed to the career. Scientists at the CDC and ih Nyad On baby, you convention one or two of the things that you think he's done wrong and done right? No question. None of this would have happened without carefully thought out Infrastructure. By the National Institutes of Health and our fantastic research universities and institutes that that made all of this possible. I will say exactly how operation works. Speed was assembled. I don't have a lot of details about that. I will say the individuals chosen months of slowly and General Gus Purna looks like done a very good job. Mon set by. I've known for a while he came out of GlaxoSmithKline vaccines He's been in our laboratory is a very smart vaccine guy and And has done uh, looks like a really good job so far in leading that. Three. Only three only piece that I would say that that has not happened that I would have liked to see more of Is more of a communication strategy coming out of operation works..

"Live local and they're talking about the stories that matter to you Share your opinions with Marc Melinda at 51283605 90 Now. Here are Mark and Melinda. Welcome back. Melinda. How are you? Thank you. I am doing well. I feel rested. My mind is at ease right now. So I'm good. How are you? You must have unplugged for away. I did my best to unplug there. Still that drawl that you still have to kind of know what's going on. But it was. I wasn't emerged in it like we are here all the time trying to keep up. So, yeah, it was a nice little mental break. I'm glad you did. Because when you were about to leave, there was talk of Adler and cous are calling for a 35 day locked down. Were you surprised to come back and find that we were not in another lock down? No, It doesn't surprise me that they wanted to take the most drastic measure based on scare numbers and then come to find out that we haven't reached the predicted numbers that that's been that's been the pattern. So it doesn't surprise me too much that we I mean, very thankful that we didn't. But it doesn't surprise me that we didn't doctor as Scott. The Health authority on Tuesday said. Well, things have improved a bit in Austin. It's not severe enough to call for a total lock down. So that's why Adler and Cassard didn't get to push for their locked down. I'm sure there was some behind the doors meetings with him. You're not supposed to say that out loud. You're supposed to be on our side, but good for him that he was like looking at the numbers based on what I'm seeing. You don't need to be that drastic. Now there are doctors today calling for lockdowns. Dr. Peter Hotez C in the Houston area is in the Houston area. He's with the Baylor College of Medicine. He's one of the top. Infectious disease experts in the United States. We've talked about him since January 2nd when you and I began discussing the Corona virus. He is calling it a dire emergency. He wants another national locked down. Not just Texas, but nationally, and I don't agree with that. I do think that there have to be measures taken in in places where you're seeing these huge spikes like Florida with the huge number that they had in spiking cases, But I don't think it's measures that You lock down or say that because in Houston, where were bad, we need to just make sure the whole nation is long down. I don't agree with that. I think you do more damage. That way Here is part of what Dr. Peter Hotez is saying this was on MSNBC. I think. We're headed for something unprecedented. What That means is every American will know. Somebody hospitalized. Copan, 19. And that will be incredibly destabilizing. Every one of us at some point will know someone who's in the hospital with covert 19 unless we have another lock down. At this point, I don't even know anyone that has or has tested positive for covered. And I'm talking personally know now I know I've heard of people that know what people that know people sure, but personally I don't know of one person that's tested positive. So Tio, it's hard for me to say. Oh yeah, we'll know someone that's hospitalized when we've been at this for months, five months now, and I don't even know a positive testing. I don't either. That is quite a stretch. Isn't it going from where we are right now? To what? What he's describing, but that's that's his position today that we need a national locked down. Others are saying that we need to lock down in Texas. Here's one of the doctors in the Houston area Doctor Sora, who heads up the entire Houston area held system. He was also on MSNBC, and he agrees, he says, Look, It's really dire in Houston, and I think Texas is in a severe situation as well. It's extremely frustrating to be watching this unfold every day and be telling people about the numbers in the hospital. The number of people who are sick people who have who are dying. At the end of the day, this being very preventable disease, and that is that think that the frustrating part He calls it a very preventable disease. But he's talking about a lock down the way we had in March in April. Well, if it's preventable, I mean, is he saying the only way to prevent it is locked down? Because I think we've gone along enough, Teo show that that's not true that there are other ways to curve it and it's not locked down necessary. What? We had pretty widespread agreement at least here in Texas in late April that we needed to get the economy Rio. But yes, the negative consequences of being locked down were mounting and they were very severe. And those are still there and I think probably will be even worse if you attempt to do a second log down. I think the Depression, the job loss and all that will be more severe. Then it was in the first go round. Now. Here's another sound bite from Dr Peter Hotez at the Baylor College of Medicine. Listen to this. He says, if we lock it down now That we can have school and even the NFL by the fall. That doesn't seem to make any sense to me. But listen to this sound bite. Yeah, the falls only what a month and 1/2 away two months. It's not that far away, But here he is, if we take the right measures now We can have schools, colleges and even the NFL by the fall, But we have to do some hard work. Here's why that doesn't make any sense to me. The virus will still be with us. It's not going away. So if we go into a total lock down right now and then try to emerges, he puts it for school and the force. Wouldn't it be? Where especially they're they're saying fall weather that time. Weather is another catalyst. Tto help it kind of breed faster. So wouldn't it be worse that you go into full log down? That's two months, 2.5 months of not being out and about your muse system really breaks down, and then you're going to send everybody back to normal in the fall and expect it to be okay. It doesn't make any sense, either. It's his view skewed because he lives in Houston. Well, he's just inundated with the numbers in the the media coverage day in and day out, Possibly Ah, But I also think that a lot of these doctors, they allow the politics to play into it as well. I think that they look at it, and it's a chance to say. This is so bad. This is what we have to do. And I think that they try to come at it as a health perspective, Innocence and well, this is Beth Health wise for right now and not look at the long term. It is the right here and now Dallas Morning News in University of Texas at Tyler are out with a brand new poll get a load of this 70% of the registered Texas voters that they polled. And this occurred in late June and early July. 70% now say that Governor Abbott re opened restaurants and bars too quickly. 70% of Texas voters have that opinion. I'm actually a little surprised at that. And I wish there was a way to go back in time and have open the way It is without all the unrest, the protests and the things that went on like that. Would we still be on the same.

Coronavirus Update with Dr. Peter Hotez

"My Name is Dr Peter. Hotels and I believe that everybody in the United States deserve access to new drugs and therapies vaccines for cove in nineteen regardless of their ability to pay Arina. Sorry Dr Hotels. Thank you so much for joining us again. A lot has happened since last. We spoke some of it. Good and a lot of it bad. Can you just give us an overview about the status of the pandemic in America right now? Well of course the big over you for the US was this really horrible humanitarian tragedy in New York New Jersey Connecticut in the northeast. And we're still not nearly done. It's probably still going to go on for a few more weeks but I never thought we would see that level of the station in terms of death and admissions to the hospital in intensive care unit. And it's given me a real perspective on how things could go terribly wrong here in the United States so for me. Now it's all hands on deck and making certain that what happened in New York especially in places like Queens New York which you know I know you know very well would never happen again elsewhere in the US. Well I mean you call that a humanitarian crisis. Why do you identify it as that? Well it's the level of suffering that I'm seeing and it goes beyond you know it's not just the ticks of the number of deaths. I mean we're hearing about scores of schoolteachers. For instance getting sick and dying. And even you know there was an article that really broke my heart about the doormen New York. Yeah numbers of them have gotten sick and died and I went to medical school and Graduate School in New York at Cornell and Rockefeller. And you know you'd have a bad day in the lab and you just take a walk and the only people up at that hour would be guys standing in the doorway and on some evenings. They'd be your only friend and you'd have a little. You know nothing little informal chat with them and and that all those people are getting so sick and dying is really heartbreaking. So that the situation in New York and New Jersey and the thing that I'm really concerned about now is whether we really learned our lessons from New York and New Jersey. Why do I say that's so? For instance here in Texas. We saw what was happening in New York. We implemented social distancing early on really ahead of the virus so we never saw peak anything close to resembling what happened in New York and New Jersey. And that's been great. We've not had a huge number of admissions in the Texas Medical Center to the hospital the ICU we've got some. But it's definitely a manageable problem but now I think we're starting to hear from the governor that now they're anxious to open things up again right and relaxed social distancing even though a number of the epidemiologic models and I know the epidemiologic models are not perfect they have their flaws are basically saying for some states like Texas. We need to maintain that social distancing until June. One until we go back to containment vote and the problem is that the governor's in many parts of the south and the West. Just don't have the appetite for that. They're going to open things up earlier than June one. And maybe even by next week or the week afterwards and I understand the realities of closing down the economy. I understand the hardships that many people are facing that. They're not getting a paycheck and I understand the need to open segments of the economy. The piece that bothers me is that I'm not confident. We have the public health infrastructure. That's been put into place in order to manage what's going to be a new surge. We don't have places of business well set up to do testing a regular basis. We don't have the staff in place from public health agencies to do the contact tracing. We don't have syndrome surveillance activities in place so I'm very worried not so much for the next few weeks but I'm worried we're going to start to see a brand new round of searches that could even dwarf the ones. We've been seeing what happens starting over the summer. So I'm very worried and going on cable news a lot explaining this that come July and August if we don't have national plan in place not only around the economic recovery but linking at the public health we could even see unfolding situation. That's worse than we saw in March and now the first couple of weeks of April. Well the thing that I don't understand is has it. Peaked and with governors wanting to open up their states. Will there even be a single national peak or are we just going to keep peaking state by state and not get on the same page with this? And is it necessary to get on the same page? That's basically the worry right. The peak in New York according to the models is already happened a few days ago and one in Texas maybe in another week or so and then the numbers are starting to go down. The problem is we often forget. This is like the eye of a hurricane just because the first wave of the hurricane hit and you see the eye doesn't mean I go outside and play. It means the second part is coming so that part has to be considered and then not having a system in place to prevent a bigger resurgence in the summer of great concern. Because if you look at the models and yeah anybody can do this by the way. It's that's what I'm thinking about the models that they've set up in Seattle is anybody can go to just go to health data dot org and you can click on your state and see what's happening the models basically show a peak and then decline going all the way to August and don't really try to predict what's going to happen after that because they don't know what's going to happen in terms of relaxing social distancing by understand the urgency to relax social distancing. It's just that with out a plan in place for my during it. We're just asking for a huge problem. Potentially much bigger than the one. We've already faced

Coronavirus Special Episode with Dr. Peter Hotez

"I'm Peter says than I believe that. All of the world's population including the world's poorest people deserve the right access zoo essential medicines vaccines innovation. Sorry not sorry I just from a medical perspective. What makes this virus so different than some of the other viruses that circulate? Why is it so deadly? Well this is one of the interesting things about this corona virus. It's not the most lethal virus we've ever seen by a long shot right. It's nothing like Ebola. Kills Half of untreated people. Nor is it like needs those in terms of transmissibility that must transmissible be no but it's high enough both categories to give it this unique spin that we haven't seen from a lot of other viruses. Let me explain a little bit. So the virus itself overall is between five and twenty times more lethal than seasonal influenza. Which itself is a bad actor. And it's quite transmissible at two or three times more transmissible than flus. You've got something that's not quite as serious as the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic but it's starting to approach that but it only happens for certain age category so this is really interesting. It's highly contagious. And but there's a lot of people walking around with a that are not too sick to stay at home so they could spread it in the community. Let me contrast that was something else so if you look at the original SARS virus this new virus. You're calling it. Sars to the original one which came out in two thousand three. Was You know five or six times more deadly and more serious illness for everybody? So what happened was if you had that original SARS one virus in two thousand three. It's not like you were walking around going to target going to the shopping mall. You are sick. Any were better. You're in the hospital and that kind of kept you out of the community pretty quickly. This one is different than last year. One of those at risk groups and I'll tell you which those at risk groups are. You're walking around spreading the virus pretty widely in. That's why this thing has taken off so much in central China and in northern Italy and then in the US doing this as well but if you're lucky enough to belong to one of the three or four major at risk groups that's when you get very sick and half the go to the hospital for those combination of reasons it makes it a very serious national epidemic and also. I mean you know I don't want to politicize this but the president is giving guidelines and recommendations that I don't know vary from interview to interview right. I mean it's like every single time. We hear him speak. He's talking about something else some other guideline that contradicts the guideline before. So how can individuals be expected to know the right thing to do when they're getting totally conflicting information from our leadership when needed to be done? What still needs to be done is and I've said this in public. Few Times is what you need to do in. This kind of situation is ever have very honest discussion with the American people. Were you say you know? You don't say this is just the flu or a cold or this is contained. What you do is say. Look this is a serious pathogen. These are the three or four things. I'm most worried about you. Talk about older Americans especially those with underlying disabilities. You explain why you talk about healthcare providers. Now we have to -mergency room physicians in critical care this weekend. According to the New York Times and so these are two or three big populations that were worried about. And here's what we're GONNA do about and why we're GONNA do what we're doing and historically the American people responded to that very well at. It's just when you model the message and say you know in in an effort to reassure that language was used which tried to oversimplify minimized. It actually wound up making things much worse. I said you know if you had actually gone through the three or four things that you're worried about. Here's what we're doing about it. I think that in itself would have been stabilising and we might not have seen this volatility for instance in the stock market and everything

"And really they are destroying freedom of the press Gloria Borger on CNN last night after the debate turbine was a disaster this was a disaster they look like the two old men from the Muppets and I posted there but here she is cut thirteen go by now over and over again said this is bigger than us this is bigger than America this is about the world and how we interact with each other and I think that's a point that according to polling people trusted by not so well I don't think this change the race in a very dramatic way I think he managed to reinforce a lot of what people like about him trump said nothing by nothing but this is bigger than us it's about the world we all need to interact with each other can you imagine if Donald Trump got up to the microphone today and said that he B. Telerate that's it turbines the one to trust you see on the corona virus then we have somebody named Peter Dr Peter Hotez who's on MSL as the last night cut fourteen go I thought the vice president was really pitch perfect tonight I thought he would he really nailed it and a lot of those elements maybe not going quite as far as is the governor's island of life but he was he was quite strong in terms of the real big picture stuff that needs to be done the vice president was definitely ahead well what's even talking about the real big picture stuff that needs to get done he was vice president not that long ago what did you do what did you do with the real big picture stuff really quite remarkable I don't think you did anything now I want to get to some of what the president said today Mister producer so I am looking here this one go what is concerned about.

"Washington for eleven years was if you WanNa get anything done you can do it. Provided you're willing to reach across the aisle and not be too ideological and I still stand by that so you know. I think what we're going to see in the United States is we will see an increase in the number of cases right now. It's around twelve. Those numbers will go up. Maybe one hundred or a couple of hundred. I don't think we'll see anything nearly as bad as what we're we're seeing China but you never know for certain because we still don't understand all the transmission patterns and things. I'm relatively optimistic about the US. As well as European countries. I think the reason why Dr Ted drove the Director General of the of the World Health Organization declared the public health. Emergency of International. Sern was because of what happens when this goes into resource depleted countries. So there's a lot of Chinese traveling back and forth to places like the Philippines and Laos Cambodia. That's rethinks can go very badly. Because they don't have Adequate health system in place There's not the monitoring. There's not the disease surveillance and then we also have through the through The President Xi in the the belts and road initiative in Africa. We have between one and three million Chinese working in Africa right now. So and put pretty regular flights especially going to Addis into Ethiopia from from China. And you can imagine what happens if this virus gains a foothold in you know you name your sub Saharan African country. There's some are better than others in terms of health system infrastructure. So that's where things could go very badly as well. So that's that to me is my big concern word. This could really emerge into pandemic meaning that it's an epidemic in with lots of transmission in multiple countries in different parts of the world. And I think there's definitely that possibility where it could become pandemic when thinking about the response to the outbreak. Both you know you mentioned from the Chinese government but also from governments more generally. How do you think the relevant countries have responded so far do institutions seem to be taking the appropriate steps? St Think there's more that should be done in the regions particularly the regions that are most vulnerable. And just curious how you're reading everything that I can tell terms of the US western European countries. Japan South Korea I think Malaysia even Singapore. They know how to do this. They're on top of it and through the benefit of Chinese science. They had advanced warning on what this virus is and some idea on how it's transmitted so I think I'm not so worried the low and the big low and middle income countries. You know what's happening going to happen. If this goes into India or Ethiopia Tanzania or or as I was saying some of the Southeast Asian countries are going to be on Mar. Who knows you know? I just just no way. I mean. There's a few positive things that could happen. One is historic. We've known what we've known about the there's also a bunch of human animal corona viruses that cause upper respiratory infections Sore throat. Uri Symptoms. They tend to peak in in the Northern Hemisphere. They tend to peak in Ron January around now so the hope is an SARS when when it broke out of China I believe peaked in March so the hope is that there's a sharp seasonality to this and as we move into April and May there for reasons that we don't entirely understand. I don't think for a lot of viruses. We don't really understand their seasonality. It could really diminish and then the question is will come back your will this be a seasonal thing like flu. I you know how do you know? It's an agent so we we no idea and so that so the potential good news. Is that your sees analogy what that means for the Southern Hemisphere because you know for flu for instance inverted right this peaks in the summer months. Not In the winter months. So that's that's going to be interesting to look at and whether we can accelerate a vaccine and a reasonable period of time if we you know the the technical feat of making a vaccine against the crow virus tends not to be nearly as bad as flu or or AIDS because of anaesthetic digital doesn't seem to be that Anna genetic variation the problem that you get into with Corona virus vaccines rather respiratory vaccine says that immune enhancement so each each vaccine target. Has its own little shop of horrors right in terms of what what you worry about. So that that's what I worry about for Khurana ours and and I think they're now at least four or five promising technologies candidates out there including ours for vaccinating. So it's a question of whether the world can organize itself to move all those four or five candidates former simultaneously because if you just rely on one technology that's that's a very high risk strategy. And what do we know about timeline for vaccine development? Right now both yours and the other the actual making of the vaccine is is not so difficult For Ours is is an old technology receptor binding domain of the recovery so recombinant protein vaccine genetically engineer niece than our K. So that's envy of precedent for that with hepatitis. B Vaccine is a yeast derived recombinant protein. And then you have the HP vaccine. That's also recombinant protein. So we know we can make it And same with the DNA in our new vaccines. They're not that challenging. To make the problem is at all they all feed into a bottleneck and the bottleneck is despite what the Anti vaccine claim. That vaccines are not safety tests. The truth is they are probably the single most heavily tested pharmaceuticals we know about in terms of safety. And that's why it takes a long to develop a vaccine. It's generally not the technology behind it. It's which there is some investment in that case we spent years making this Sars vaccine manufactured. But you still have to do one. Eight animal toxicology study regulated by the National Regulatory Authority in our case. Fda under good laboratory practices thundered a specialty contractor. Knows how to do that. That takes time and then phase one phase two trials. Take time and there's just so much you can compress that timeline. And you can't do that so up up to a point so you can only do it up to a point. So that's what's that's what's going to slow us down which is frustrating for our SARS vaccine because had we found that investment to move forward with the clinical trials back in two thousand sixteen after we made it we literally have had a vaccine ready to deploy in China now. And it's a bit frustrated. Your I think i. I don't know if I missed it or have heard you say elsewhere. It could take up to a year. Is that a okay timeline or is it just highly variable? Yeah the question is whether they're one of the things we learned In deploying cholera vaccine into places like Yemen and in Haiti or The Ebola vaccine now in DR Congo is there there's opportunities for Innovation Regulatory Science in order to accelerate some of those safety testing. I mean I think what's going to come out of Ebola. Vaccine Development in Congo and twenty nineteen is going. You know that is going to be one of the most important public health stories ever told when somebody gets around to. It's gotTa be worth worth a documentary serious documentary. I mean because this was a vaccine. That was Administered in clinical trials. Under some of the most difficult circumstances we know about through conflict and war right and despite that the W. H. O. The World Health Organization with Garvey and UNICEF and the Wellcome Trust and alliance several organizations the Merkin Company and and Barda was able to vaccinate over two hundred thousand people and averted a catastrophe that would have dwarfed Ebola epidemic in West Africa. In two thousand fourteen. I think and really stabilize the African continent and that fortunately that vaccine turned out to be more than ninety percent protective. So that is As I say I think it's one of the great public health stories that has yet yet been told that book is waiting to be written. Yeah well I mean that's incredible work and so we're all rooting for you and this process Unfortunately our time is rapidly coming to a close. I have one final question for you. I have a lot of listeners who are healthcare providers that take care of immuno-compromised children with malignancies primarily. And so what I want to ask you. What do we know about the specific risk of mortality or morbidity with the current virus both for just regular folks but then also thinking about specialized population like immuno-compromised people? So what they're still more. We don't know than we do. What we think is all the official numbers as of today are going up to twenty-eight thousand some model lurs and epidemiologist think the real numbers around one hundred thousand at least and that's because the only cases that are being recorded are those causing severe morbidity often requiring hospitalization or even intensive care support. So the what's thought of is that there's many more people with low grade symptoms or upper respiratory symptoms who are not getting to medical attention so the good news. There is the probably. The mortality rate is lower than we. We think I think the the real risk right now is frontline healthcare workers. You know their risks and we've already seen potentially a death or two from among healthcare workers. The ones who are doing very badly with this virus tend to be older individuals over the age of sixty more males and females for reasons that we don't understand and those with underlying diabetes and hypertension. And there's that there's an emerging story about Diabetes Infectious Diseases in general that we don't understand so for instance those dying of Danke and India are those with underlying diabetes hypertension those dying of tuberculosis and the border with Mexico. Are those underlying diabetes hypertension. So there's a great pathogenesis story because nobody really understands the the base of that. So those with underlying diabetes and hypertension. I don't know if anyone's really looked at those with the kinds of immuno-compromised kids that you have to deal with on a regular basis either because they have severe combined immune deficiency genetic immune deficiency or HIV AIDS acquired immune deficiency or because. They're undergoing cancer. Chemotherapy suppressive therapy for one reason or another I would imagine they are at increased risk. Right we know about this from other respiratory Athens like para flu or or their Sela but That story may emerging time as well. I think we should assume there's risks. Yeah okay well. Is there any particular advice you could leave us with in terms of a frontline health? Care worker who Either might be wondering about it or just worrying. You know what could come next for my country. What would you say to someone like that? I would say those. Who are I know? A number of your listeners are particularly interested in Africa. Right now. This virus has not gained a foothold nearest firms. Mu Now my worry is. It'll take time for people even realize that has gained a foothold. Because we don't have the surveillance system in place so watch out for serious respiratory infections and and we need to have a low threshold for alerting public health authorities about that. One of the reasons that I was against the travel ban from China is because it's very stigmatizing and once this virus moves into Philippines Myanmar sub Saharan Africa. The National Health Authority. There's going to have to think twice about whether they want to divulge information because then subjects your country to travel ban so I I think. Travel bans tend to be counterproductive. Merriman the aspects of them because the tend to incentivize people not to be transparent and So we'll see how that plays out as well and then one thing I can't believe I forgot to ask there are reports about the virus potentially being effective Up to two weeks prior to onset of symptoms has that been verified or. Do we know anything about this? Latency period there's paper published in New England Journal of Medicine From an experience in Germany where they thought that's happening now. There's a question about whether person one of the individuals may have had some symptoms but didn't adequately report it. You know it's not unusual. I we know for instance for measles. Measles could be transmitted from an individual who hasn't shown the rash or even the pro drum yet the couple of days ahead of time. So I would say this. I think it's still possible off. It is late incubation period. You know maybe the day or two before the symptoms but it's also been noted that people with respiratory viruses. Even if that's the case you have a much higher viral load more likely to be infectious. Why you've got symptoms so there probably are individuals who are about to become sick. That are still transmitting virus. But I think most of the cases are probably coming from people actively infected with coughing sneezing and all those kinds of things. Okay well Dr Hotels. You've been unbelievably generous with your time. It's your busy schedule right now. so thank you very much for talking to us and for giving us some real reliable non social media generated information about the corona virus and the prospects for vaccine. Thanks so much for having me and good luck on your podcast. Thank you very much..
