But it's not killing people at the pace that the alpha invade ovarian stint hundred and twenty four thousand new cases yesterday a total of five hundred fifty eight deaths. We mourn every debt. Of course that's not to make light of the five hundred and fifty three people who died yesterday according to new york times far down. It's a spike. Guess what it's not impacting children. It is not impacting children. Yes there are a tiny number of new children cases across the united states. And that's terrible thing but it's like all the other terrible illnesses that affect children and they break our heart but there's no reason for parents to paddock and so in dallas children are by order. The governor supposed to be going to school massless and the dallas superintendent ordered all students to wear masks in school buildings and on buses. There is no science for school. masking.

Just in fix settings to recognize it if you aerosolize virus through a mask and then the recipient had a mask and these were all dummies in rooms that were ventilated to a different degree. You could have an impact on the amount of virus. It went from one to another. But that's not to say in a real life scenario that that's efficacious in the classroom.

Protecting Each Other
"Welcome to the thick. This is a podcast about politics. Race and culture from a poc perspective. I might gain a wholesome and today. We have a special guest to close out our year. Joining us from my. Gosh i love michigan. Love ann arbor. Dr abdul el-sayed. He's a physician epidemiologist. He's author of the book healing politics and all round fabulous human beings. So welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited to be here. I feel like. I'm sitting in the computer version of my grandmother. Salonen alexandria so that's the vibe. I'm going for right here. oh. I love it. That was like perfect respect okay. What is grandma serving. What are we drinking. Tea or coffee or it'd probably be minty. Yes okay awesome. It'd probably be a selection of different cakes that you picked up from the local bakery. And i would always. I'm not a big drinker. And i didn't really discover coffee until after my grandmother had passed so i would always have raw cane juice that you can get freshly squeezed down the street as ought always pick it up and they'd serve it in this little baggie so it wasn't like it was like a bag you with a straw. That's the field we're going for here. We got it right. I'm so there of course. We are recording this in early december. So just take a note on that listeners. You know things might have changed in the news cycle where assuming that democracy will still have survived. But that's just a no for you. So abdul public health expert the former health commissioner for the city of detroit we are going into a winter. That cdc director. Dr robert redfield has worn. The reality is december. January and february are going to be rough times. I actually believe they're going to be the most difficult. I'm in the public health history of this nation. I'm a survivor. I'm public about that. So i have all kinds of feelings about this because at this point now. Early december win. We're recording this. Two hundred seventy six thousand people more than that have been killed by covid. Nineteen the coronavirus has exposed so many tributes in terms of structural poverty. Racism power black and latino working class communities you know have been devastated and yet also been in this country functioning in your book you write quote one of the abiding truisms in epidemiology is that the poor will always suffer more and worse. Yeah so we're clearly seeing this. A lot of us are thinking about the vaccine and what the vaccine looks like when we're thinking of the context of structural inequality and racism. So give us your sense. A lot of people are like okay with there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Yes but i'm more circumspect. We're still in this for the long haul. But i don't know you tell me. How should we be feeling about what's happening right now while i'll tell you this we didn't have to be here. And when we think about an epidemic and what creates an epidemic. I want folks to understand that while a virus is naturally and there's very little you can do to stop the epidemic or the pandemic that follows is a function of the choices we as a society make both before that virus emerges while virus is spreading and after that virus has taken its toll and right now. I'm feeling some kind of way about the choices that we have made the choices and that we are making. And i am optimistic about the potential for a vaccine and what a vaccine could do to halt the near exponential spread of this virus. But at the same time. Right when i look at all that has come before it. And the fact that we could not as a society invest in any sort of collective action right to bring down this virus. We could not come together. We could not see each other as worthy of our protection by doing something as simple as wearing a mask. We could not invest in the means of public health. I'm really quite worried. And i'm really frustrated. And so this virus. I think tells us something about ourselves as a society and what we need to do to be able to truly and deeply empower low income people and people of color and rough and do so in a way that brings us together around stopping the next one because if we don't there's nothing stopping another virus from emerging another pandemic from happening. I mean we think this is sort of a once every century thing. But that's just not how it works. There is literally no reason why any viruses out there like look you know. Corona virus came this year. So we'll wait a century until the next one emerges right and we've got to get some things right before serious about protecting folks

New Jersey to begin administering COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday
"Joining me now is New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, who state is averaging nearly 5000 new covert cases per day and will receive about 76,000 vaccine doses in this first distribution, governor. Thanks for joining us again. Good to see you when Will the first shots be administered. And how do you divide these 1st 76,000 doses between the health care workers and the nursing homes? What's a good to be with you? I'm happy to say that and I'll be there Tuesday morning at University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, We will begin vaccinating our heroic health care workers. On You're absolutely right. The first batch of 76,000 split the majority toward health care workers but a good slug toward our long term care residents and staff and then with each ensuing week those of the two top priorities It'll take us a number of weeks as you could imagine toe work through the entire populations in both of those groups, But it Z going to be a big day on Tuesday morning in Newark. S O. After these initial doses are given to the health care workers nursing homes. How are you prioritizing Which group should get the next shot's Utah's governor, for example, announced school teachers would be in the first phase of vaccinations there. Do you know exactly who is next in your state? We're still working that through. I think every state is doing the same working with the CDC federal guidance the so called one a bucket, our health care workers, a long term care and then one B is a much larger group. Every one of them were the population of getting too early. We're working through that right now. Remember? Moderna is up for their emergency youth authorization this week on God willing, they get in. Then you've got not only increasing batches from Fizer. You've then got a second vaccine. Coming online with shipments each week on those larger populations will then be dealt with it. I think of it is in overlapping waves. You know we'll be doing. For instance, the second shot For health care workers long term care residents as we're beginning first shots for the broader populations in that one big group, and one of the biggest concerns now is ensuring enough residents get the vaccine to control coverage spread. A survey from your Health department in mid October found that Fewer than half of New Jersey's nurses would definitely or probably get vaccinated. What are you telling residents skeptical of taking the vaccine? Even nurses won't get it. Yeah, I think the number please. God as it relates to nurses and health care workers has gone up meaningful E because I think this confidence has been building around these two vaccines now pretty much on as a drumbeat for weeks upon weeks. Listen, Martha. We've got to begin with a skeptical anti vax block, which is a minority, but they're strong. And then you've got on top of that. What Some folks sense was the politic. Politics getting involved in the development of these vaccines. I would just say to folks First of all, we're not waiting until we get them. We've already been pounding away that these air safe, they work. On day. That's a message of repeat. Right now we have had our medical folks kick the tires up and down. We believe in these vaccines. They're safe. They work. We want people to get them. And I want to turn now to the alarming number of covert cases surging nationwide. This is a great hopeful day, but including a New jersey you've had a real surge, which averaged about five. There's a new cases per day this week. As we said CDC director Robert Redfield recently warned that for the next 60 to 90 days, we're going to have more deaths per day than we had at 9 11. What's the most important thing you're telling residents to do about this pandemic? Martha, for all the good news. The light at the end of the tunnel in the vaccine exemplifies that as much as anything the next number of weeks they're gonna be held. I fear so we're begging with people Toe. Please. Please, Please don't let your guard down even when you're in private settings. We think somewhere between 60 to 80% of our transmission is in private settings right now celebrate holidays small with your immediate family. We know that stinks. But please, God, that's your down payment for a north more normal one next year. Social distancing face coverings. The basic stuff we cannot let up on the next. I think six day weeks they're gonna be really challenging, but we'll get through it, but we got to not let our guard down. In the

"Define people that have the classroom then. A click acid test to find people that have infectious fires and it also finds people that have declared acid remnants which means stay around two weeks three weeks four weeks five weeks. So i would just suggest that i think antigen tests and again all antigen tests. Aren't the same so this really need to look the fda in terms of the ones we really know for example like the by next now these. I think are really very accurate task for us in defining whether people are currently likely to have infectious fires in a wouldn't be surprised that over time that you see that they'll be testing the comes out. It's really going to distinguish whether someone's currently infectious. Not whether someone was recently infected thank you. That's very clear translation of the science at the end there I i to just thank you and thank everybody for joining this meeting today and also just to amplify something that you said dr redfield which is to acknowledge How incredibly hard people in the public health world From cdc to Ah at every level of government and really all over the world have been working.

"The entire medical community. And beyond that as you know the community and really between the community and the medical community Build a health system. I was always disappointed as a young student of madison of the flexner report which in nineteen twenty nine decided. We needed to pull public health out of medical schools. We need to have a public health school. We needed to have a medical school in an. I've been a big advocate that we need to reintegrate public health and medicine into a health system. And addition to that is the community is going to be central. So i mean i know you have great skills I'm sure you'll you'll also be great voice as our nation tries to transition. I'm disappointed in institutions that have gone on to population health and figured they can just put their public health programs right in the same structures that they developed for a disease system the answers. They can't do that. We do need to develop a new comprehensive. Some brings together practice of medicine. The practice public health the community. You know a number of the issues that you are so important in terms of the social determinants of health so i look forward to some of your leadership in this face. Let's go to the next question and thank you for that one. We will take our next question from eric schwarz. Thank you dr redfield. Could you please comment specifically on your attempts to convince. Our political leaders locally. Endorse these masks as a public. Health risk mitigate. Well i can say that the since we formally made our recommendation on april third That we finally recognized that source control was really important even for people with no symptoms and we put out the recommendation for mask that i've i've echoed that obviously at all of our task force with the leadership of our nation. You know. I do think that as you look at where i think we could have done. Better as a nation is actually ed or consistency and messaging omaha all the american public. Not just our political leaders. Not just our governors all the public. And i can say that you know. We've pushed the data. We shown the data we've done by but it's very disappointing when i have governors Basically feel that mass. Don't work both ambassador version. I've middle trips to go and talk and share data and happy when we're able to change people's minds as we have some but i can just tell you that we have Aggressively reiterated that. We want all americans to embrace face And we will continue to do that in every every chance that we get probably the most important way his firearm example and making sure that we're wearing them independently even when we see others. maybe not. let's got the next question. Please our next question from designate commander. thank you I probably related question. It's in regards to the vaccination and the The public mistrust and wariness it You know there are certain communities especially the black community in other communities of color that have legitimate and historic reasons to be wary of a vaccine that.

"Much on and and i think you know the lack of recognition that most of this infection was coming in to medically Was a real challenge. You know we sit up screening multiple airports. We screened hundreds of thousands of people but we screen them for symptoms. I remember calling howard zucker. Because i saw the same stuff you saw and i saw that you know. Influenza was going down but influenza like illness was going up. And i remember calling howard and said i think there's a problem in your city And of course they began to look at it. More aggressively began. Unfortunately rapidly see that. There was substantial seating so I do think the one thing that could help do. This is if we built invested in court capabilities of public health so our public health lab said greater laboratory resilience and capacity new york did a great job howard was the first state lab actually developed their own tests. They cross filed on. Are you a and they were the first one to actually have it on high. Throughput machine But i take your your. Your comment is factual. I do think ahead an impact. It was not until i think the fourteenth fifteenth and sixteenth cased when we clearly saw patients that had no link that we recognize that we had to expand this day. You know anybody who had concerns or suspected they may have someone who on so but that january early february timeframe To the end of february. I i do think that restriction than therefore it have an impact on whether certain cases were identified. But i think the big answered. Your question is significant investment in laboratory resilience of our public health. Labs and the other thing i would say is expansion from great institutions like yours Because there was no reason why mount sinai couldn't develop their own laboratory developed test and be able to expand the use of this test For whatever patient population they wanted to look at particularly influence alike. But it did take know. A lot of the academic institutions. Didn't jump to make their own laboratory developed tests. One of the reasons we publish them actually actually how to do it. We were hoping that major medical centers which is developed their own lab test and they'd be able to use it were broadly particularly after we had the two cases in california they were clearly community acquired. That's really interesting that you say that because there was this case in washington that we wrote about where that did happen. But because they didn't have the clear certificates They were actually stopped from using that test. So i think it's not always that simple and i think the caller is right. I remember as a reporter hearing from a lot of doctors who who really wanted to test patients early on and was very very hard to get exceptions to those rules. So thank you for acknowledging that that that was an issue Let's go to the next question. The other side. I just want to reemphasize too. Because i acknowledge that is really the major medical centers do have the ability to make these good amid that test available to the people in their hospital to we really did try. Got the fda at the february to give regulatory relief in.

This person that you had asked for an email to be deleted That had you know that was going to the You know allegedly of some political interference or a attempts at that with the mwr morbidity and mortality weekly report which is a very highly regarded scientific publications of cdc And there's this house select subcommittee on the coronavirus crisis. That wants to interview you. So i i i wanna ask will you will you go. Will you do that and You know there is a role. Policymakers of course have to balance A lot of science with implementing things. And i don't envy people who have to make tough decisions about policy but is there a role for politics in the agency and how much how has the a political pressure Lots of stories A lot of speculation in clearly on the one that you referred to that i would never delete an email plus my email compete deleted. It's quite for ever that seen arguing that you had told somebody to. I would never tell somebody to delete an email. When i did tell people i instructed. Cdc to ignore docker alexander's comments and they didn't need to reply to his email And as i testified before congress. I've always been fully committed to maintaining the integrity of the wr jewel. It's an independent publication. Doesn't work at the pleasure of the cdc director it has its own independent group So i stand by. That doesn't mean people won't try to accuse that doesn't mean people won't try to make their point of view. But i can say that on my watch. At science face data driven the agencies maintain their integrity I will concur with you. It's not always easy And i don't think these agencies should be politicized you know. I had my brothers the director the nih director. The fda director would be appointed like like the fbi director for ten years in serve multiple things. These agency should not be. I think in the political mix You know myself personally. Not political dr clinical researcher. That when i was asked to serve The president and the nation having come out of twenty three years revealed in the army. I said yes and But i don't think they're these science face agencies need to be as i believe. Cdc is today was during my tenure rounded in science rounded and data and This been a complicated response. It would have been a lot nicer if it was more limited like the response that my predecessors did where. Cdc had totally. But this became very rapidly from cdc where i did our incident management in our center for respiratory and january seventh all. Cdc by the third week in january for im structure. The secretary decided to move it up. Hhs at the end of january and then of course the President moved it up to the vice president and it became. It went from cdc response to in response to an all of government response. Do you think it's at a state. S cdc response. I i'm not gonna. I'm not gonna get in and speculate. I'm just saying that we really needed all of government. We eat it. The defense production act. We needed to be able to send ships to help. We needed to build hospitals where they needed him so it really needed to be an all of government response in beyond all of contracts to say it was. It was harder. It was harder because yes certainly yes. But you're right. Cdc doesn't have the power to do all of those things. So i would love to a now. Open the qna session To invite our members to join our conversation With their questions so a reminder to everybody that this meeting is on the record and the operator will now tell you how to join the question queue.

"I wanted to give you a chance to To you know to say two things one is if you could have a do over what is one thing that you would do differently. And then On the other side. What is one thing that you and maybe people in the agency field that the public really isn't getting about what the cdc has accomplished. I would start by just acknowledging that. There's you know right now. Almost eight thousand men and women from cdc that are working twenty four seven on this pandemic out of our entire team And they're highly dedicated and very professional and they've worked hard to get data and science to create. Or what do you want hundred documents to try to provide some advice and guidance to governments business in the american public I've deployed over. Twenty seven hundred people two hundred thirty cities to try to provide technical assistance at the ground. Because really the way. Cdc works is by working public health group of public health group providing advice. I trying to get the data to understand what are the mitigations. We were able to actually get out about twelve point. Three billion dollars to the states to help them start to build their infrastructure. So i'm very proud of the men and women at cdc. And what they did. I got my first projection of the impact. Pandemic i think late february And it wa- it was a difficult evening then evening because it projected up to two point. Two million people would be dead by september This passage it will be a big problem when you get to what i would have loved to done differently. I think i would've loved to have been able to convince president. Gd let cdc in in the first week of january so we have helped define some of the key scientific questions. Which at that time were.

I think our medical treatment i is is is really very good. And as we've gone from april when it was a twenty five to thirty percent mortality. If you're seventy years old and admitted to a hospital today that mortalities probably somewhere between three and eight percent So a lot of improvements based in healthcare facilities understanding how to take care of these patients. Better the timing of oxygen support how to do it when the ventilate when the not been allayed Obviously the advancements in veer understanding the role of steroids advanced disease and then of course now with the monocle. Antibodies and the potential for convalescent plasma particularly as outpatients. Most of the therapies. That we have really push forward the monoclonal. Antibodies complex plasma. These are therapies. That are based on antibodies. And they really need to be positioned and given to people before they get sick enough to go and hospital in the stirred there be. It's for the of response that needs to be given when people are getting sicker in the hospital so But i think the basic reason is that we have more people that have come abilities in this wires really does exploit exploit videos. Say it does and i should say for people who are in their thirties. Listening i have in my reporting in various hospitals have seen people die in their thirties. So it's It is less common but this is this can be brutal when it's added i've seen so many When we see it can cause than anyone. I would say some people i've seen died under thirty. They've many of them had had. Had you know fairly significant body mass indexes. but yes you know but but this virus definitely has the differential fatality rate built into it. And you know as opposed to say if i was to look at people with a bad influence a pandemic between the ages zero in the age of fifty it would be pretty pretty equal across nestle. Is i look at this virus. It's quite different as you know rights and in in terms of the us being the leader. I mean it's not just in it's also in cases so that i think there may be something more there than than just our co morbidity Obviously reported cases and we're testing a lot. But they're still you know. I think it's important in your right. I i mean. I think different cultures have embraced public health recommendations with different degrees of rigor.

"According to a government web sites that expects over about six hundred thousand cancer deaths in the near and we haven't even reached the year mark. flu deaths are estimated at twelve thousand to sixty thousand deaths. A year So we can see that comparison if you do the jumbo jet comparison the four hundred seat jets that's Seven and a half of those in just one day in terms of deaths so And then just the comparison to the world as you pointed out. We are leading the world's Actually just a recent statistics. The new york times where i work has a very maintains. A lot of statistics And according to to our sites a third of the world's new cases were in the us and a quarter of the world's new deaths And we have the highest deaths in the world and if you look at deaths per capita will in the top fifteen so my question for you is why is the us leading the world in deaths. It's obviously an excellent question. That answer and i'm gonna give you the answer. I do think your point is important. As to the chamber of commerce the other day we are in the timeframe now the probably for the next sixty ninety days. We're going to have more desperate day than we had a nine eleven where we had a barrel arbor. I mean this is really as i said this is a real going to be real. Unfortunate loss of life has all that we've had so far and the reality is the vaccine approval this week not gonna really impact that i think any degree for the next sixty days and this is why we have to really do everything we can when you look at the mortality. This fire is fires has really It's very unusual like influenza can cause death for children. It can cause death for lessons and can cause death for adults. Such as spectra of illness is pretty. You know across every age group this virus and very different really hard because as any illness in individuals say under the age of forty five fifty and even between fifty five and sixty most of the onus pauses dependent upon comb abilities and then of course the elderly again. So she with corbu admittedly so people may not like the answer. That i'm going to give why americans are greater risk for death because we're on healthcare unhealthier nation when thirty percent of our nation's obese. We have very significant number of people in our nation with chronic co morbidity. Is the other thing. i think it's done. I've spent a lot of my life worried about this about how thick prior to becoming into cdc And really do believe this really that one of the greatest social injustices. Our world today is lack of health equity whether it's in our own my own city where there's a twenty year lifespan. Difference depending on what zip code you were born in. So i do. Think one of the reasons we're having more death is that we unfortunately have more obesity or diabetes or renal disease.

The sequence was in january tenth Within a year we actually have two vaccines that are going to be deployed It's really remarkable in terms of the impact of the innovation. They came to bear and to see that then somehow sit on the shelf or a percentage of our population and eventually the world Initially in our country because of hesitancy many parts of the world because as we ramp up availability to see hesitancy and become a major reason. Why individuals don't get vaccinated. I think is continues to be one of the really serious challenges that we have in in the remaining time that i'm cdc director Through the middle of january to keep pushing for vaccine back to nation with confidence.

Probably close with just Saying that we are turning the corner. But i wanna come back to reality that is going to be. I think okay a brutal time for us. As i said i think it will be the most challenging time in history of our nation from public health perspective And i want the public to really understand that. Despite what i said. That's not written in stone if people really would embrace the strategies that we've asked problem with this virus is it's really infections. I'm overall adjust by training interesting that we're seeing record lows of flu. So the mitigation that we're doing the level were doing is having an enormous impact on the respiratory pathogen influenza but that same degree of mitigations not having any impact of any degree as i mentioned that our nation now is at the highest threshold of the pandemic and unfortunately we're continuing to see cases rise as a consequence of the thanksgiving a surge combined with the surge that we're having in general We do know that if you do in fact wear masks It really works. We did a an dot w. in kansas where the governor issued a voluntary mandate counties. Could either do it or not. Do you know Say half a little less than half Did it in lower have didn't do it. The follow up period turns out if the county had a mask mandate in do any investigation of how well was Exercise but this is the county issued a mandate those cownie said a six percent decline hundred thousand cases over the observation period and the counties did decided to nor the mass mandate they had over one hundred percent increase so there was over one hundred six percent difference in the amount of in cases that were spread. Just simple decision whether to send a leadership perspective in in recognizing the mass were important So i'll leave dan. I'm happy to answer questions and see what other people Questions that the the audiences thank you so much. Dr redfield and I'm i'm really glad that you started with that question. Of what can we do to protect ourselves because There are over. Six hundred fifty members on this call on many are leaders in their communities. And i think you know that we're going to get into lots of questions that there's probably nothing more important that We could address today than Than this question of how to how we can protect ourselves how we can protect our communities So i hope that everybody's taking those words to heart You did talk about today. Being momentus day yesterday we as a nation had a reported over three thousand deaths. it's a record Many news outlets have pointed out that puts the coronavirus toll for one day higher than the nine eleven toll for the first time. That's number eleven attacks There are some other statistics that are just that really bring this home.

Transmission throughout our nation is too high life. We had over four million cases in the month of november alone more than a million a week and we're consistently seen between one hundred and seventy five thousand two hundred and twenty five thousand cases a day It's also very sobering to realize and in the united states today the covid nineteen now is the leading cause of death surpassing heart disease and other causes of death. I've said that the next three months in the united states in particular is going to be really rough. And i've actually said it's my personal belief. It's going to be the most difficult time in the public health history of this nation. This is why we're really asking people to really double down on the mitigation steps that we do. No work is really no value in the debate about whether these minister mitigation steps worker or not. they were We have the data to show that. We're asking people to wear a mask. They work they help contain the virus from the individual infected so they don't spread it to others but they also can impact whether or not someone who's not infected gets infected in. It's critical that we embrace mask wearing social distancing Excellent hand hygiene smart.

Real Talk on Thanksgiving Celebrations in 2020
"Is coming up here in the us and while being bombarded with headlines cdc recommendations and local alerts. That reminds you how much you should not travel this thanksgiving and only spend the holiday with people already in your household more than likely you or at least some people that you know are making plans to break or bend those recommendations in some way. No personally i do think that the best strategy is to not have indoor gatherings with people outside of our households. But i also recognize that just saying that and nothing else is like abstinence only education and as someone who grew up in texas place with some of these strictest abstinence only education regulations and some of the highest rates of teen pregnancy. I know that simply telling someone not to do something without giving them any other education or advice on what to do if they do. It is not useful so whether it's useful for you or useful in sharing with someone you are trying to convince to be more cautious. Here are some things to be aware of in some tips for still getting to celebrate in some way without putting yourself your loved ones in your community at huge risk. Starting with this from wired quotes. Cdc director robert redfield warned on a call with governors earlier this month. That small group gatherings were driving up infections. We're seeing a lot of transmission amongst families and friends in small groups. Neil seagal assistant professor in the department of health policy and management of the university of maryland. Says he adds that the social interactions people prize during the holidays. Put people at particular risk from cooking together in close proximity to multigenerational gatherings. All of these things put us at increased risk of transmission of airborne infectious disease. He says end quote so again. The safest option is to not have an indoor gathering with people outside of your household as you weigh your options for where that leaves you or how you might in advisably bend the rules. The first thing to remember is that almost everything with regards to covid. Nineteen is about risk reduction. There is no one thing that you can do. That will make you completely safe so you can't just do one thing that you're fine by the same token deciding not to take any precautions because none of them are foolproof is also an inadvisable strategy. Over on cocky dot org. Jason has been referencing the swiss cheese model a lot lately and just generally sharing some really great resources with hard data on transmission and risks. So keep an eye on over there. But the swiss cheese model is basically the idea that if you have one slice of swiss cheese something can totally get through the holes. Even with two slices of swiss cheese something could get through but the more slices you layer on top of each other the less likely anything will be able to penetrate the holes of the swiss cheese so for example if you go get a regular. Pcr testing the nasal swab. A few days before thanksgiving in it comes back negative. That is not your ticket to go. Have a maskless indoor celebration with a bunch of other people. That test was just one slice of swiss cheese and the holes are things like a false negative rate and the chance that you got infected inbetween taking the test and getting your results. That doesn't mean don't get the test it just means. You need more slices of swiss cheese. Make sure you're still wearing a mask and social distancing in your everyday activities they are able to self quarantine in between taking the test and getting results and in between getting your results and attending your thanksgiving celebration by the way. Even though the rapid tests that are becoming more available can give you your results within the hour and therefore cut out that time of needing quarantine me wait results. They are still far inaccurate than the regular ones. No other slices of cheese or precautions to take would include significantly reducing the number of people in attendance under ten if possible bonus points if you keep anyone over sixty five or otherwise high risk as a virtual attendee. Hold the event outdoors or you know maybe in a garage with the door open. Limit the amount of time that you spend their or the amount of time spent indoors for example stopping by to say hello for fifteen minutes is way better than staying for four hours or all nights travel via car not by plane bus or public transportation. Better yet don't attend anything that would require you to travel across city or state lines although if you do check the rate of transmission in your community the community that you'll be traveling to end the communities any other guests are coming from and or consider quarantine both before you leave and when you get there. Although that's a bit late to do for thanksgiving but could be a tip for future holidays.
CDC Report: Officials Knew Coronavirus Test Was Flawed But Released It Anyway
"We're also tracking the pandemic where the United States remains the world leader in cases and deaths this election week the U. S surpassed 100,000 cases per day for the first time, and today we have more of the story of how we got here. And NPR investigation has revealed news of a failure of Corona virus testing early in the pandemic. In February, a test designed by the Centers for Disease Control did not work, which set back U. S efforts now on internal investigation from the CDC, obtained by NPR shows the microbiologist who produced that test new it was flawed. And send it to the nation's labs. Anyway. Here's NPR's Dina Temple Raston. The covert tests arrived in New York City on a Friday in early February, when there were just a handful of confirmed cases in the United States that there was a little box with a few little tiny screw cap test tubes in it. That's Jennifer Rickman. She's the director and assistant commissioner of the New York City Public Health Laboratory, and she was one of the first people to learn that the cove in 19 tests the CDC sent to labs around the country. Actually didn't work. It became clear as soon as her lab technicians tried to verify the test. But the e mails from the lab stuff for saying something looks not quite right. Call us what jumped out at them. When the lab brand specimens that were supposed to be negative. The tests seem to indicate those samples contained a low level of the corona virus. It was truly an oh, crap moment like what are we going to do now? Everybody is waiting for us all over the city to have this test online. Everybody was holding on to this moment that we were going to have a test and now we don't have it and they wouldn't have it. It turns out until nearly a month later in March, which meant public health officials were hobbled from the earliest days of the pandemic health officials across the country reporting a shortage of tests. Despite promises from the federal government comes amid growing criticism that the delay in testing may have compromised the nation's ability to detect cases The CDC lab appear to have failed in a spectacular way. Though, as recently as July, the agency was still saying the test didn't have a problem. Here's CDC director Robert Redfield. When we did try to expand that test to give it to each of the local health departments, there wasn't manufacturing problem in one of the re agents that had to be corrected. That took about five weeks, But the agency's internal review suggests that isn't so It determined that the scientists who built the test used the wrong quality control procedures. The review also found problems with the lab's quality standards and problems with the management of the Latin more generally. The infectious diseases lab was run by a highly regarded scientists, Dr Stephen Lindstrom. He'd been an expert in influenza at the CDC for more than a decade and became director of the infectious Diseases lab a couple of years ago. The CDC declined to make Lindstrom available for an interview and declined to comment for the story. But Kelly Rib Lusky, director of infectious diseases at the Association of Public Health Laboratories, Said she was surprised that Lindstrom's lab would be called out on a report for something basic like quality control. That hadn't been her experience with him. I've done studies with Steve, and he's meticulous. And so the documentation failure was really surprising, So that was one thing the CDC found. A problem in the way the lab was run. The second thing that review found was that right before the test, we're going to be sent to hundreds of public labs. The lab ran a final check that showed the kids might not work. Ah, third of the time. But rather than pull the kids back, lab officials sent them out anyway. Kelly Rib less key again. The thing that hangs me up the most is probably the the 33% and not recalling you're not immediately going toe remanufacture or something at that point, because 33% is clearly a lot. To ensure this never happens again. The CDC review has recommendations for change. It sets clear criteria that must be met before the kids could be sent out rather than allowing lab directors to make a judgment call. An outside group must review all the CDC test kits before they go out. Stephen Lindstrom, for his part, no longer runs the lab and none of the same people who oversaw the making of that test. Are in charge. Now. New York's Rickman says that month they lost was crucial to the outcome in the response nationally as well as in New York City would have been different if we were able to have all the tools we needed in our toolbox earlier than we did not having the CDC tests, she said, was like building a house with just a saw and not a hammer. They needed a hammer, she said. Dina Temple Raston NPR news
