"sarah swick" Discussed on Here & Now

"From NPR and WBZ. I'm Lisa mullins. I'm Jeremy Hobson. It's here and now we're gonNA start this hour in a city where the corona virus numbers. Don't look good but cutting edge. Testing has just become available. Detroit and its surrounding counties. Have more than eight thousand cases and it is the first city to get rapid test kits that produce results in fifteen minutes or less joining us. Now is Sarah Swick reporter for Michigan Radio and Sarah tells more about these rapid tests and why Detroit is getting them first so these tests come from Abbott laboratories and as you noted they are supposed to give results in as little as fifteen minutes. Detroit is getting an initial batch of About five thousand and also five machines to process these tests and as for why Detroit is getting them first so far as I know the story. Is that Detroit mayor. Mike Duggan managed to get a hold of the cell phone number of the CEO of labral laboratories gave him a call and Presumably expressed to him that the need was really great in Detroit and so within a few hours they managed to get a contract and the shipment arrived and started being used yesterday that the city is using these tests for healthcare workers plus bus drivers and first responders. We know the viruses already taking a toll on those groups. One striking example of bus driver who last month posted a video to facebook about a woman coughing without covering her mouth. That bus driver has now died and police have been hit hard. What's happening with the police in Detroit? While in terms of the Detroit Police Department right now there are over. Five hundred officers and quarantine more than one hundred officers have tested positive including the Detroit police chief James Craig. There being quarantined so the hope is with these rapid response tests that they can rapidly test the folks who are in quarantine including as well firefighters and bus drivers and if they test negative get them back on the job as quickly as possible. That is Sarah Swick with Michigan Radio. Sarah thank you. Thank you to Louisiana. Now where the State's health department is reporting the highest single-day surge of confirm corona virus cases. So far more than ninety one hundred people are infected. At least three hundred people have died more than one hundred of them in New Orleans. The city's hospitals are warning. They may run out of beds and ventilators in the next few days. Dr Jennifer vague no is director of the New Orleans Health Department. Welcome DR of ignored. I thank you for having me Lisa. Yesterday's spike reflects the fact that results are coming in from a backlog of tests some of which were more than a week old. Why is there such a delay in getting the results of the test? And how's that affecting your work? Well that's a good question Lisa. Our state lab was the first to start testing obviously and as of now the bulk of the test being run in Louisiana and New Orleans like most places around the country are from commercial labs and we were the first federal pilot drive through testing site selected and the test from that program is being run through commercial labs as well you know we're processing thousands and thousands of tests a day but unfortunately the commercial labs have really not been able to keep up with their promised turnaround times of anywhere between three and five days turnaround time instead. It really depends in recent days. They've gotten somewhat better but we still have tests that are outstanding from twelve to fourteen days That's something that is incredibly frustrating to us. We've got citizens calling US anxiously awaiting their test results and we don't have them to give them. We really put the pressure on the commercial labs to ramp up the information that they're giving us but from a health department side from the city side from a modeling side. It really makes predicting and planning very challenging. So Governor says the New Orleans area is set to run out of hospital beds and ventilators this weekend. Sounds like a terrifying scenario How do you expect to be able to get and do you expect to be able to get more ventilators? Well we've been putting in requests for weeks now to the federal government's Our governor stated it was a couple of days ago. He had put in a request for close to thirteen thousand ventilators and gotten one hundred ninety two now. I believe that another hundred and fifty were shipped yesterday and they are being deployed to the regions of most need But we continue to ask for ventilators from the stockpile manufacturers everywhere that we can I in order to be able to to meet the needs of our hospitals. We know that People with pre existing conditions or more vulnerable to covert nineteen. Your Department is reported. Forty percent of all people who have died in New Orleans from the disease had diabetes. Twenty five percent were obese. Twenty one percent had cardiac problems. Are you delivering a message to other states that might have populations with similar preexisting conditions absolutely our messaging has been very clear if you have a chronic medical condition. We need you to stay home. We need you to protect yourself because the consequences for you. Becoming ill are generally far more severe than a young healthy person. And I just WANNA say to other areas. don't be afraid to test you can't fight what you can't see And so we hope that by getting a hold of this early as we have we can really fight it as best as we can. Of course the only work when you get the results in absolutely Dr Jennifer Vignal is director of New Orleans Health Department. Thank you so much for speaking with us. Good luck. Thank you Lisa. Well now let's turn to Femi- okay. Host the Stream on Al Jazeera English looking at going on through the Lens of social media. Hype Emmy Jimmy. And we are a lot of us are working from home right now because of social distancing and there's a viral tweet that has reframed the thinking around that tell us what it is and what's the story behind it. It's such a good one from new web and he says you're not working from home. You are at home during a crisis trying to work. This was something that he'd heard repeatedly and he says I think it's an important distinction worth emphasizing at it so resonated a hundred thousand retweets three hundred thousand likes and people were sharing their struggles artist. Alfred says I'm still trying to teach art but most of my kids don't have supplies at home. I like an utter failure. Sam says thank you for posting miss. I really needed to that. That was like a comforting pat on the back and one more 'cause it resonated so hard this is a monk chipmunk chick says I call it coping from home. You want to see that tweet for yourself. Go to at Neil Amazon web near will probably tweet back at you because he's nice that way. Okay good now. Many of us have been using zoom this video platform that hosts business meetings and just fun hangouts with family et Cetera. and People even teaching school classes Th resume we should note that zoom is a funder for NPR but there have been some concerns over something called Zoom bombing and people are warning others on social media about this. What is that and what are the. What are they saying? What do you think of it as a video APP that people are able to troll or gatecrash that being obnoxious maybe offensive? They're jumping into a video gathering. They haven't been invited to or that sort of stuff that we used to on social media and I just looked up zoom bombing as a Hashtag and I found her a couple of really good examples just from the last couple of hours people scape. Hr and search tweets my eleven year old school history class thirty five kids was zoom bombed yesterday by young adults showing private parts using foul language. It was quite an eye opener for the children. I didn't think it was meant to be funny but I did laugh at that. So they history. Lesson turned into a biology lesson accidentally. But there are lots of tips that you can use and so I went straight away to the source at zoom underscore. Us and they said we appreciate the scrutiny. We know we've had a lot of criticism and they posted a blog. An epilogue was really interesting. It says we did not design the product with the foresight that in a matter of weeks every person in the world would be suddenly be working studying and socializing from home. We need to do better. And they've got training videos. They've got a little webinars. So that you can actually learn how to use zoom well so basically. What they're saying is read the instructions before you jump online. So you have meeting settings you have privacy settings you can host you can curate. It's a bit like leaving your door open and say hey everybody come in. That is probably not a good idea. Close your front door. Put a bounce on your front door. You'll be fine on sue. I have four zoom set up this afternoon. Zoom bomb yet asked our working. I would love to have you any of those a semi one more thing. We have to talk about because it really has to talk about Germany where exactly. I wanted us to talk about it. It is celebrity chef China Garden also notice Barefoot Contessa. She took instagram on Wednesday to show us how to make which she called her favorite cosmopolitan it. Listen to this crisis you know. Cocktail hour can be almost any hour now. The last detail is really important. A Good Martini. This one I like. And she's going to show you. The one likes she pulls out a giant Martini glass about the size of her head. She feels it takes a big SIP and tells people to stay safe. This was shared at nine o'clock in the morning. Sapient is a genuine recipe. Says she says to COPS. Volkan imposingly entire. She's been called the quarantine Queen I know for president. She's an entire mood. I also highly recommend that you go to her twitter feeds. There is delicious food their recipes and also she shares on social with warmth and kindness and.
