"smallpox outbreak" Discussed on WABE 90.1 FM

"A chance for thunderstorms this afternoon, those that chance rather decreases as the evening goes on overnight lows in the mid 70s, 93, for tomorrow. From NPR news, this is all things considered, I'd marry the Louise Kelly. And I'm one of summers. There are now nearly 3500 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the U.S., and as those numbers grow, we continue to live with COVID for the third year since the initial outbreak. Joining us today to talk about the federal response to both viruses is doctor Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to The White House. Doctor Fauci, welcome back to all things considered. Thank you for having me. Good to be with you. Let's start off here with the monkey pox outbreak, which the World Health Organization just declared a public health emergency of international concern. That was over the weekend. Some of the scientific community have warned about a possible monkeypox epidemic for some time now. Why was the U.S. unable to contain this? Well, I think that's a little bit of a misrepresentation about a long time ago. If you look at the countermeasures that would develop namely the vaccines and the antivirals, those were originally established for a smallpox outbreak that would be responded to by a vaccine in which they were literally a 100 million doses which we have in our strategic national stockpile. The jynneos vaccine, which is for immune compromised people who would not be able to take the original 100 million doses that we'd have distributing for the ACAM2000, which does have some Doctor Fauci still with us. It seems like we may have some trouble with his line here. I'll just jump in and say there was a lot to talk about with Doctor Fauci over between monkeypox and COVID I know you had a lot to get through and it's interesting what he's saying there just in terms of the efforts to try to fight monkeypox before it arrived in America. We're just going to see if we can scramble and get Doctor Fauci's phone line back up. We may have to move on to another story if we can't get him in just a moment. Go to the next one. All right, we're going to move on to another story for now. While we get Doctor Fauci back on the phone and that story is in Russia, the country announced today that after 2024, it would withdraw from its role in the International Space Station, the ISS, as NPR's Charles maines reports that may signal the beginning of the end of U.S. and Russian cooperation in space.

Www dot munk debates dot com. I hope you'll consider joining and becoming part of our community. Now back to our program so martin. I'm almost working gates myself here because i'm trying to find consensus but look that's the value of these conversations. Try to push them to see where they go. so martin. Would you agree with paul. That people who are unvaccinated. Let's say twelve and up eighteen and up. Pick your number but including a lot of people who are not elderly and high risk. Do you think martin did days should be subject to mandates with the proviso. The paul seems to agree. That if you've been naturally naturally acquired immunity you get an exemption pass. Well if we can do so that people had covert already but they are not mandated. That would be a huge huge advance and it will actually increase the trust in vaccine for others who do need the vaccine but have one problem. Is that when you try to force people to get vaccinated when it's clear to everybody that don't need it because they all had immunity that people start questioning and not trusting. Cdc or age so that's very very dangerous very very damaging to the whole public health system that we have in this country. And that's that is trust in. Syria sewage has skyrocketed during this year and a half. that's doing enormous damage and not only in of the kobe but also for other vaccines and other aspects of public health. Now they are very important things that we should do to increase vaccination rates. And i think one thing that the cdc there. An enormous mistake on was with ajay. The johnson and johnson vaccine because there were some reports of the blood clots in younger women so there was some concern about if this was the problem or not but at that time there was very clear. Data for those over fifty and the people over fifty were the greatest need of this vaccine and at that time he decided to take a pause on the vaccine. And that was exactly the time when vaccination rates started to drop in the us. It had been going steadily up but at and then it started to drop at that time. The j. vaccine never recuperated which is very very tragic because he's the only one shot back seen ideal vaccine for the lower income people for example homeless people or other people in rural areas. That are hard to reach. So the fact that cdc made a pass on that vaccine for people over fifty year a lot of them which to the efforts to vaccinate people. And i think that was very tragic. But instead of acknowledging the mistake they actually removed the remove people who oppose spare the pulse kicking them out of their vaccine for systems. So that the to me you can start to blame people who are already immune who don't want to take the vaccine when cdc made Such a major mistake. I in the efforts to vaccinate people. Thank you were debating today. The res- a resolution on vaccine mandate spirit resolved to promote public. Health government should mandate the use of covert nineteen vaccines broadly in society in the remaining part of this debate. I want to move a little bit bigger picture with you. Both because you've been you yourselves have been participants in this debate that we've been having about mandates for the last year more and i want to get to kind of people's attitudes in society and paul. You wrote a column recently. That had a punchy phrase to say the least at the at top of the column. The constant us constitution is not a suicide pact guaranteeing a right to harm others. Maybe you could talk a little bit more about your views about how we should think of this in terms of our rights and responsibilities as citizens in society today. And then martin. I'm gonna come to you with a A similar question right i. I think that The the interpretation the constitution by the supreme court has been clear twice. I was in the jacobson. V massachusetts case in one thousand nine five. We're during a smallpox outbreak. There was a essentially mandate by cambridge word of public health to vaccinate its citizens because smallpox boxes of continuous disease. Jacobson a lutheran minister didn't want to do that also didn't want to pay the fine that was associated with choosing not to get the vaccine and so that went to the supreme court. We're basically the supreme court ruled that a public health agency can mandate a vaccine in if they deem it important that was reaffirmed in the king case. Seventeen years later for a high school student who didn't want to get a smallpox vaccines as a requisite for attending highschool. It makes sense that a public health agency can step in and say look. It's not your right to catch and transmit a potentially fatal infection. I mean you know. we're a country. That's founded on individual rights and freedoms and for some reason a critical percentage of the population. Twenty five thirty percent are now saying this is their personal freedom. This is their civil liberty. And it's not. And i think that that the only thing you can do there as either stand back and watch them transmit disease which is what we're seeing. I mean we can talk endlessly about booster dosing. Giving a third dose to people who've already been vaccinated. That's going to do very little to change. I think the contagious index or there are not of that person. Begin to two doses. If we use the a vaccine is an example give two doses to people who haven't been vaccinated. That's gonna make a huge difference. Look at where all. These cases are occurring their current areas that have low vaccination rates like florida texas missouri georgia at louisiana at cetera. That's the problem. We need to vaccinate the unvaccinated. And the only way to do that. Near as i can tell with the vaccine of people are saying to you know thank you. I don't want to get it. Yes martin what do you think of this argument that the harm principle john stewart mill. We can go back to our our policy political theory courses university and remember that lesson that you know your own behavior is limited when it starts to cause harm to others. How do you feel about government stepping in using incense the harm principle to say okay. This is no longer a matter of individual choice. You are not going to make your own decision about the efficacy of these vaccines booster shots. Age groups we are mandating this as part of what a an order liberal.

"Minutes anyway hopefully longer. But we'll see you so optimistic. I try i try. Somebody's got to be so the after degree title or episode title with what even is really just exemption because anything more specific would increase the chances that it gets flagged by somebody as as spreading misinformation. When no that's that's not what. I'm trying to do at all right. You're trying to fight misinformation comment on an interesting social development. Yes so what is the connection between religion and vaccines lauren. Do you have any guesses. Okay so i know that vaccines came by the eighteen hundreds at the same time that there was a lot of religious diversity starting to happen so i wouldn't be surprised if there were religions that targeted vaccinations as new and evil or something. I don't know so the first. The first vaccine know smallpox vaccine There was the seventeen ninety s. Yeah when that was being developed and smallpox was a big deal. Religion stayed out of it. There wasn't anti vaccine movement and that was focused on not smallpox isn't a big deal but the vaccine is actually making people sick right. That was based off the medical wouldn't actual vaccine injury. Yes where you know. You've got something like a blood borne disease from dirty needles. Because the way the smallpox vaccine is being administered at that time was you took a cow was infected with cowpox town to town and use the land set to cut people's arms. And you take a bifurcated needle and stick it into the blister on the cow and they get some of that pus right into the arm and go person to person as you. Go down the lines to one person's making cuts and the other person is just sick in this bifurcated needle into the cut. So gross as like a gruesome fair. So it was painful it was bloody. It was messy. The expected outcome was a pretty unpleasant illness. A couple days and there were cases of entire towns getting infected with stuff like syphilis right. Where the first person who got stuck had syphilis and his syphilis got spread to everybody down the line yeah so there was grounds for an anti vaccination movement but it was not religious base. it wasn't religious based at all. For some reason. I got my mind stuck on the eighteen. Hundreds late eighteen hundreds like eight hundred sixty and after. That's when it was really picking up steam. Yeah and it was in. the eighteen. Nineties was when there was a supreme court case. When the city of new york was in the middle of a smallpox outbreak they mandated. Everybody in the city had to give accent right and this was the court that the decision that said that they had every right to do that because it was a public health. Emergency health emergency. Yeah that his into the that this one guys individual liberty did not outweigh the risk to everybody else in the city. Yeah now when you're trying to eradicate a disease that was prior to the ratification program. Oh wow okay. Theoretical program didn't even really get started until there was a world health organization right rule so eighteen. Hundreds is also when christian science started. Okay so christian. Science is definitely one that we think of religious exemptions they show up at on a list They are the ones known for having practitioners. Who go and pray with people who are ill because they don't believe illness is real doll mental illness christian science is basically a modern nonstick church. Where you've got this principle that there is the pure spirit world and the physical evil world if you are saved than you are pure spirit and the physical world isn't real. It doesn't matter that illness isn't real. That's just the manifestation of sen. You're just an evil walking flesh bag except they don't believe the flesh bags even real that it's an illusion. The illness is an illusion computer simulation. Gotcha and as such. They believe that if they have faith. That illness isn't real then. God will save their souls because that keeps her spirit pure whereas if they lose faith then they will that will be demonstrated by getting medical help. so how well you whether the storm of illness it doesn't actually. It's not like you actually get better if you pray harder or believe more sickness happens. It's just a result of this fake made up world anyway right okay and if you end up dying of a fake illness then that guarantees that and you didn't get any help from a sinful doctor that guarantees you go to heaven. Okay which is why people don't take their kids to dr swim. They're sick right and they have grave cemetery is full of dead children. Yeah yeah the. The followers of christ in idaho or similar group started not activate agent science not christian science at all. Oh there are more of an offshoot of the lds church with some pentecostal. Yeah mixing only some unholy matrimony between those two religions. Yeah so little bit mormon little bit pentecostal. And just like yeah. Lots of that'd babies religious exemptions to vaccination so what differences if they get a fake vaccination for their fake bodies anyway that demonstrates they don't trust god because they're relying on science to keep them alive in the physical world. I mean i can understand if it's your choice. But once it's mandated is just like. Oh well who cares at that point. You can't fight it wouldn't fight. It doesn't matter. They also believe that. If if you do not have a choice you know. God is responsible for who is in charge and if the authorities say that you have to do it you are to comply and by complying with the law. You aren't that's not a failure of your faith because it's not a willful choice. Okay.

"Variation with smallpox virus vaccination with an attenuated version of accented. virus was also savor them vaccination with live unattended cowpox. Yeah there were still potentials for various complications but this was an improvement overall. It really didn't take long after the development of vaccines for people to wonder whether vaccines could be used to eliminate smallpox entirely but early attempts to do this faced a lot of obstacles as we talked about an episode on the royal philanthropic vaccine expedition early versions of smallpox vaccine lost their potency really quickly especially in hot weather and that continued to be true after vaccinia replace cowpox as the preferred virus for smallpox vaccines. But then in the nineteen forties. People started working on dehydrated and freeze dried versions of the vaccine. The vaccine institute in paris produced a freeze dried vacuum packed vaccine. That had a longer shelf. Life in the nineteen fifties leslie herald. Collier at the lister institute studied the preservation methods that were in use and how effective they were and he developed a process. that didn't require refrigeration. Even in tropical temperatures once the vaccine was reconstituted. It still had a short shelf life but until that point it could survive in the field for months. It also protected people from smallpox infection for at least ten years and offered protection against dying of smallpox for some time after that collier's method eventually became the world health organization standard for vaccine used for the eradication campaign. Smallpox was eliminated in north america in nineteen fifty two and in europe in nineteen fifty three and that was done primarily through mass vaccination campaigns especially ones that were done in response to outbreaks and this success came in spite of increasing resistance to vaccines and compulsory vaccine programs and the united states. This resistance led to a supreme court case in nineteen five. The city of cambridge massachusetts had been trying to stop a smallpox outbreak and had ordered all adults to be vaccinated or to pay a five dollar. Fine heading yacob's refused to be vaccinated and then after being fined took the matter to court. In the words of the court's decision quote the liberty secured by the of the united states does not import an absolute right in each person to be at all times and in all circumstances holy freed from restraint. Nor is it an element in such liberty that one person or a minority of persons residing in any community in enjoying the benefits of local government should have power to dominate the majority when supported in their action by the authority of the state. It is within the police. Power of a state to enact a compulsory vaccination law and it is for the legislature and not for the courts to determine in the first instance whether vaccination is or is not the best mood for the prevention of smallpox and the protection of the public health. We'll get some more on the campaign to eradicate smallpox in the rest of the world after a sponsor break. It's crazy how much we have to pay for outdated impersonal healthcare and even crazier that we all just accepted. It's time to face facts. Healthcare is backwards..

"Smallpox is a viral disease that has existed for millennia when it was circulating in the wild it spread from person to person through the air usually through face to face contact and it can also be spread through contact with contaminated objects and surfaces people who contracted smallpox typically developed a high fever and body aches and that was followed by a distinctive rash.

"So today joe scarborough did a segment where he basically mentioned that everybody is entitled in this country to be an idiot and he's talking about the people that for whatever reason have chosen not to get the vaccine this whole thing about the vaccine and the rising levels florida A situation where they only have forty eight percent of the population. That's been vaccinated. They're they're seeing a spike in cova vid and this thing has spread like wildfire folks. And you've got a a governor down there to santa's who was ill equipped to deal with it. Who basically spends one percent of his time telling people to get a vaccine and the ninety nine other percent of his time is spent telling people that he doesn't want to go back to a lockdown. He doesn't want to wear a mask. It's like just focused on getting people. The vaccine i mean this thing is just getting out of hand and it with variant. That we've got. We just learned yesterday that people like myself that have had the moderna vaccine. I've had the two shots. If i were to get cova even though i would be. Acm the viral load in my system would be sufficient enough to give it to somebody who has not been vaccinated even though i have no symptoms. So i'm going to have to wear a mask essentially to help the people that have had no vaccine now. I'm willing to do that. I don't mind doing that. But i don't like to hear clowns out there like the santa's going on about how they're not going to wear a mask and all this kind of jazz. I don't mind wearing a mask to protect the people that haven't had the vaccine. I mean this is. This is something that we're we're all going to get through but it's insane. But here's what joe scarborough said this morning folks have a listen to this at this point. A lot of people getting really pissed off. A lot of people are saying what's with the unvaccinated. What's with his hyper individualism. That that that basically says. I have a right to do this. And it's joe biden said but no personal going along with that hyper individualism. No concern for their country. And what's in the best interest of their country. No understanding or recognition of jesus's words do unto others that which you would do under yourself. It's all i have a ride. In fact my house to in fact my community to kill everybody that that might just count come in come in inside of me and it closed tight room. I have that right. And i'm not gonna that's fine but at some point you know what we got to say. You can't work for the federal government if you don't have a vaccine you can't teach school if you don't have a vaccine you can't work in hospitals so the part where he said no concern for their country in what's in the best interest of their country and how they think it's all about i have a right to infect but folks let's just bring this up here so here. Here's an article. This is on the history channel It's been updated july twentieth. Twenty twenty one and it's entitled when the supreme court ruled vaccine could be mandatory so what happen between nineteen o one and nineteen three boston and cambridge. Which are pretty close together. Had a massive smallpox outbreak and decided to issue compulsory vaccination orders hoping to get to ninety percent herd immunity and although the vaccine order was compulsory with a fine. It wasn't forced so these people went door to door to try to vaccinate people. Can you imagine how that would go today. My god i mean i. Would you go door to door trying to vaccinate people. This must have been insane even back then so there was a man who fought not getting. The vaccine refused to pay the fine and took his case all the way to the supreme court who rejected his argument and folks. They said this. I'll put this up there and essentially what they're saying that The supreme court decision is that people really aren't entitled to be idiots here when the safety of the general public is involved that decision that they made the the supreme court way back then established a reasonableness test that the government had the authority to pass reasonable laws for the common good. So no people don't have they're not entitled to infect other people they don't have the right to infect other people they don't have the right to be idiots in that sense and then joe went on to talk about how different groups are mandating that their employees actually have the vaccine. And there's this article on nbc. On wednesday google became the first major tech company to announce it will require employees returning to campuses to be vaccinated. facebook followed with a similar requirement in net flicks. Also became the first major studio to require vaccinations for cast on all us productions and then governor andrew cuomo who as we know a democrat said his states one hundred thirty thousand government workers must be vaccinated or face weekly testing. So you know. We're seeing this trend here folks where people are kind of getting fed up with it. It's a free vaccine. For god's sakes. I'd go one step further on this. How about this. I'm just gonna throw it out there and saying how much longer until we hear insurance companies complaining about covering people who have elected not to get the shot. I mean i'm no friend. I don't love insurance companies just like anybody else. But how much longer do you think they're gonna sit there until they say. Hey listen you know. What if somebody's a smoker. We charge a higher premium. If you're deciding not to get this cova vaccine in the c. d. c. says that yes go out and get it and you're not gonna get where you're going to end up paying a higher premium or worse yet. We're just not going to cover you. If you get covert and i mean you could see something like that in medicare medicaid. I'm not sure but how much longer do you think it will be until we start to hear the insurance companies start to squeal on this until they decide that they're not gonna shoulder that risk anymore folks till next time thanks for tuning it..

"The show we had nine minutes during on msnbc. Rachel is on a much deserved vacation. Well this was the announcement in the newspaper. Two days after christmas in nineteen one under an all caps headline vaccination in boston quote notwithstanding the fact that some four hundred thousand people have been vaccinated in boston since january. The first the board of health ordered that all the inhabitants of this city be vaccinated vaccinated with the board explains that although there has been a most remarkable cooperation throughout the city the medical profession and the people in general having acquiesced to a most remarkable extent in its request for vaccination. It is necessary. In order to stamp out the smallpox epidemic that all persons not protected by vaccination or re vaccination shall be vaccinated and quote. Now this is about the deadly boston. Smallpox epidemic of one thousand nine hundred one. Kill hundreds of people. It would also turn out to be boston's very last smallpox outbreak. Because of cases kept climbing. Despite pretty high vaccination rates the health department mandated that everyone in boston get a vaccine. Doctors went door to door with vaccines. Look at this amazing illustration from the boston globe. This is january twenty eighth nineteen o two so about a month. After the health department announced the mandate quote about about ten thousand vaccinated in south boston board of health had one hundred fifteen physicians at work and below. That it illustrates what each of these doctors carried with cotton alcohol and several boxes of vaccine points. The box is probably look something like this. Smallpox vaccine was administered at the time using a point made ivory or bone with a little bit of the virus on the end. Doctors went house to house vaccinating people as illustrated by the boston globe. Here's one woman. Getting the vaccine surrounded by her small children the caption reads protecting mama. Anyone who refused vaccine would be fine five dollars equivalent to about one hundred and fifty dollars today and you see part of the headline on that illustration. The board of health quote intends to bring those who refuse into court. That's exactly what ended up happening. A local pastor named henning jacobson refuse to be vaccinated. He refused to pay the five dollar fine. He took his case all the way to the supreme court of the united states and he lost in its opinion. The supreme court wrote quote. There is of course a sphere. Within which the individual may cert- the supremacy of his own will and rightfully dispute the authority of any human government especially of any free government existing under a written constitution. But it is equally true. That in every well ordered society charged with the duty of conserving. The safety of its members. The rights of the individual and respect to his liberty may at times under the pressure of great dangers be subjected to such restraint to be enforced by reasonable regulations. As the safety of the general public may demand. Well the boston. Smallpox epidemic produced a vital legal precedent. About what the government is allowed to do in the name of public health and also the vaccine mandate in boston worked. You can see from this chart that smallpox cases in boston peaked. In december of one thousand nine hundred one at the end of that month the health department announced the vaccine mandated from their cases came steadily down from their peak until the very last. Few cases were documented in the spring of one thousand. Nine hundred three now. It bears mentioning boston's response to the smallpox epidemic and the supreme court ruling upholding it. We're far from perfect public. Health authorities in boston for instance vaccinated people forcibly in some cases especially an emigrant in disadvantaged communities and there had to be further judicial intervention to clarify. That was not acceptable. The supreme court decision upholding public health mandates was later used to defend things like four sterilization. Medical ethics in american law are always evolving. And hopefully we get better at this stuff over time. I mean just to be clear no matter what. Your uncle who watches fox news is telling you. No one from the federal government is coming to your house to force a covert vaccine onto you or into you but the fundamental lesson of that box boston. Smallpox epidemic still stands both in american law and in our general sense of what we owe to each other as members of a shared society. The government can take reasonable steps to require people to get vaccinated against the virus that threatens the health and safety of our fellow citizens today. President about biden announced that all federal workers and contractors will be required to get a kobe vaccine or they will have to undergo regular testing wear masks at all times socially distance and be prohibited from traveling for work by also said that the defense department the world's largest employer will look.

They fly from Sicily out where carriers and you can generally tell where the carrier is because this aircraft the C two Greyhound Generally broadcast its location like a commercial aircraft through the satellite bouncing system, Kel Adsb and for the last couple hours this Aircraft was appearing out of nowhere. No south of Taiwan. And flying patterns. And and all that So s so the U. S. A. U. S. Navy U. S and the Pacific Command confirmed something that we've been watching. For for a while on do you can? You can, too if you go to Um Adsb exchange, but I'm getting I'm getting too deep in the weeds back to the timeline of how we got to January of 2021 s. Oh, this This can't be emphasized enough. That The Chinese government. Their first priority when it was identified that there was a new unknown SARS like virus killing people in Wuhan, the Communist Party officials There didn't want to deliver bad news to the next level up. Do you want No one want to call Beijing and say You know what? We didn't recognize this. This thing was a serious as it is, is really, really serious. So they lied to Beijing. Beijing want to be able to lie to the rest of the world. But you have to know the full truth. If you're gonna effectively lie And so, the in early February, 2020 all the highest Communist Party officials were sacked in Wuhan and who May province then report replaced with hard line President Xi loyalists who were gonna whip everybody into shape and and they did s O. Then our first case is identified in every Washington That person survived. They were younger than 40 on what? What? The timeline can't project and we probably won't know for months or years, but it probably did come to Southern California, and it was called a flu outbreak. Because the people who brought it probably were some of the 80,000 Chinese students who go to school in Southern California most but me most of them don't Go home during their four year unless they're really wealthy. They will usually stay here in Southern California, but several 1000 did fly to China in December. Many of them from Wuhan, and this was before Trump put down the travel ban on China, so they came back to L. A on Influence hospitalizations and the whole thing s O. The trump travel ban from China was in around now. It was the third week of January on Dime. I'm not sure who advised him to do that, but whoever it was, he took it seriously. You was denounced almost immediately by I'm by well all the trump haters. On do this is this is a contemporary report. This is from February of 2020 from business Insider. China's leadership is ousted for senior officials and who Bay Province where the deadly Wuhan Corona virus broke out. This week following reports of discontent in Beijing Thursday at sacked Young Xiaolong, the Chinese Communist Party chief and who Bay province to replace him with the deputy chief of the entire Chinese Communist Party. Young young. He came from Shanghai Young Young, the deputy CCP chief, The CCP chief in the city, Wuhan, Ma, Ga. John was also fired and replaced. By the city of Shandong Chinese Cummings Party chief Wang John Lynn. So there it was. It was Whole cloth and also the Health Commission leader, Jang Jin was removed for dereliction of duty in the fight against the novel Coronavirus Virus epidemic. There was tremendous, just discontent in Beijing amongst civilians. Too. And so this is what the Communist Chinese companies Party leadership did was a isolated Wuhan for 79 days starting in late January. They tried to lock it down. Now this is where you got those scenes on social media last February February of 2020 of Chinese officials literally welding bars onto the door frames of people's apartments. So that the door could only be opened up. You know, eight or 10 inches, but nobody could sneak out, but they could put food in there or whatever, and those were not anomalies. The Chinese and began scrubbing the Internet of social media, especially from doctors when they start to come out because this this was part of the perfect storm was that This is a previously unseen virus, and it happened in a political environment which would be the worst for fighting a pandemic. This is one of complete denial on by lack of transparent information to the rest of the world. On the whole thing. I contrasted it. This time last year with the Yugoslavia 1970 Outbreak of smallpox. Yugoslavia was run from World War two until the early eighties by my Tito, but you also bras called Tito. Which means do this. Do that in Serbia crowd and they had a smallpox outbreak and he was a communist dictator. Now he wasn't a member of the Warsaw Pact. He was not a friend of Moscow, and he was certainly no friend of Washington, D C, but he was a kami dictator with secret police in the whole damn thing, right? What was his approach His approach was to immediately Contact the W. H O and say we have a smallpox outbreak. It kills kids. We are cordoning off the epicenter of the outbreak. Make making a fence around it with police on then the police get inside the fence and the army guards the fence. Can you get here Because we need a crash Vaccination program. Hey, was open and honest about it because because he knew a zoo Most people did, who had lived through prior smallpox outbreaks does its deadly to kids, and you can't lose a generation of kids. On. So he allowed the W. H o in the you invited. He flew them until Yugoslavia and he instructed. This is where a dictatorship is what you want. If it's properly running a pandemic, Tito instructed the entire country unless you can show proof of a smallpox vaccine in the last five years. You're getting in line for a new one for a booster and the entire country, but they didn't need a lot of convincing because most of them had lived through prior smallpox outbreaks. They were vaccinated. The entire thing was contained in about three months. On the W. H O writes it down as probably their crowning achievement in terms of putting a lid on on on a pandemic. But it all started with Tito trusting his top doctors and saying This is serious. Let's bring the world in here, and that's how they beat that The Chinese did the opposite. They said. This is serious. Don't tell anybody. All right? The timeline goes on checking checking what I projected a year ago. Your ago tonight with what did happen over the past year. That and more.

"I was telling you the story of the last great smallpox outbreak on Earth and it was in Yugoslavia. And what kind of the lesson one of many lessons in in that video. Um, is that the person who brought the smallpox back to Yugoslavia? Was a Yugoslavian Muslim who got a smallpox booster. And then went to Mecca. And in Mecca was exposed to somebody with smallpox. On. Then he came back to Yugoslavia. He he felt feverish for day. He kind of fluids, but he didn't go to the hospital, but he did. Spread it to other people. And this was effectively in a time that the world thought smallpox was wiped out. And so, uh, the cove ID cases, Uh, infections. Hospitalizations. They're gonna fall off the table sometime in the next couple months as more people get vaccinated or more of us who had it and we didn't even know it are are walking around, but we're not symptomatic anymore. But the problem is, if you continue relying on cases, but you're not seeing Symptomatic or hospitalizations or deaths. Then you're wasting your time reacting to cases, which is what Gavin Newsom dead, and I when I was filling in for Johnny came two weeks ago. I was calling him out on this because his statewide criteria We're opening up your county schools. Is that your case rate, not your hospitalization or infection or whatever our deaths per 100,000. Your case rate has to be below 28 per 100,000. The best county in California right now. His last in county with 70 per 100,000. Lassen County has had two deaths. And, Ah, year from Cove it virtually no deaths, too, is a small number, but they're at 70 per 100,000, so they can't open their schools. And so, just just remember these numbers five and 10 years from now. When when were wondering, how could we have done this to a generation of kids take them out of school for a year. They didn't do that in 1918, 1919 and the that influenza Woz killing kids, but they we as a society California 100 years ago, said We cannot shut down schools for six months a month, Maybe We can't do it for six months.

"A cold start to the day to day sunny, dry and 54 for the high. It's 30 right now, in Annapolis, 25 in Ellicott City. You're on the morning drive with Casey. Nellie. We're talking about the covert Kratz crack down here on Thanksgiving and whether you plan to comply or not, especially, I've no no. Somebody has a large family. They have, like seven or eight people in the family, Then they have some in laws and Grandmothers come over and stuff that's gonna put him over the limit. But they're gonna have two tables. You know, the will make adjustments, told the American people what we need to know those social distance will sanitize and so on and so forth. They'll use paper utensils and not share. You know, drinking glasses and things of that nature. On and there's a way to do this. You mean you mean expect people to behave like grown ups? Yeah. What reality are you living in? But But, you know, we keep hearing the 1918. You know Spanish flu? Yes, on the last pandemic, but there was one prior to that. That people keep forgetting about and it's used constantly to justify these edicts in emergency powers and doing the smallpox. I wasn't alive. Neither were you, Bruce, but the smallpox outbreak in 1905 On that was there was a Supreme Court case. Jacobson versus Massachusetts, in which a pastor by the name of heading Jacobson continue to get a right under the free exercise clause of the First Amendment to avoid mandatory vaccinations. The Supreme Court, in opinion by Justice John Marshall Harlan ruled that the state acted constitutionally within its police powers to pass a law to protect the health and safety of the public. Writing that the courts of the Jacobson's individual right must give way to the common good. The difference then and now, smallpox had a, which has since been eradicated by vaccinations. The only disease ever to be eradicated by vaccination. Remember all of us getting our smallpox? Vaccinations. It will scar on your approach. Yeah, Smallpox. The mortality rate was 30%. 30% of the people who got it died. There was a significant more percentage of people who were scarred you for life because of the smallpox sores and things of that nature. So that's that was a true Serious pandemic and you can't equate CO vered with right now, if you look it up, according to Johns Hopkins, the their mortality rate for the United States is 2.2%. Now. That's including the 246,000 figure. If you subtract out with the CDC says we should, and only 6% actually died from covert and not with covert. That puts it in the 60.152 point, 25. Percentile, which is bad influenza. So again, all these emergency powers and crackdowns and restrictions are really not necessary. And shouldn't be and again it's gonna be anything if it if it gets the Supreme Court, we had a lawsuit here in Maryland, where federal judge dismissed the reopen lawsuit. That's a whole different ballgame, but I just think it's it's amazing. They're acting as if this was if this was smallpox well, we have a hint as to how the court released some members of the court might feel about this, You know Samuel Alito During the past week has indicated that the the rights the basic human rights that were taken from American citizens this past summer because of covert 19. I said, we're way beyond anything that he would ever have anticipated. And that is not a good thing. S 01 wonders how the Supreme Court would actually find on a number of these issues. The governmental mandate says how many people you can have it your Thanksgiving table they mandates to restaurant to arbitrarily. Although you know you're you're talking about restaurants who have made all the arrangements to have people, socially distance and all that kind of stuff. Well, I'm sorry, but you're outside eating your 6 ft away from somebody else. But we're going to shut you down anyway, There's somebody things they're just flat out arbitrary. And there are only a handful of governors who are actually vocally responding to this kind of nonsense by saying this is nonsense, But you and you look at a true pandemic like smallpox, where the survival rate was 70%. Versus covert, which is what 99.8 or something in that in that percentage, So there's a huge difference now granted, you know people with cold War abilities and elderly. They have serious concerns that we should quarantine the sick and we should take extra precautions to protect those that are most vulnerable. But the lock everybody down, they shut down businesses to ruin economies. There's something else at work here on we'll get in. There may be a little bit later on in the show, You know? Have you heard that extracts of American play a huge role in relieving pain and inflammation? And at any age, even the colder temperatures now and he sometimes you could feel it in your knees and joints and so on and so forth. Well, your bodies were actually chronic pain is something you should pay attention to, and rescue natural supplements is the creator of Curcumin ultra premium high potency Once daily capsule that fights chronic pain and inflammation.

We can get to. Ah, God. 1 20 Sounds like fun. I'm going to say 1 18 Yeah. Feels about right back. I'm going to say I will say 1 17 17 looks totally prices. Right, Chad, What do you have? I said 1 18 I'm with you on 1 18 that you're going 1/20. So I would like to. I would like to see the ones about our producers popular already. What do you think they're known as Papa? Jeez, I'm going to go with 1 19 1 19 Lowman were stuck in that horrible position. What do you got? 1 17 Anything above one of five, though, and that you've got going, so we're going to go to 1 17 because you guys are pop's Oh, so we're gonna go with that 1 17 Well, just, you know, one just get one guess. Yeah, they get again. Oh, I like that. Look like he totally did. It's like if you ever watch prices, right, right. You do that? And then you go. You know something like $400 there was somebody else was all for a one. And then the next person comes on all 40 too, So unless it's for a one, you're screwed. That's awesome. Where's Trump? He's supposed to be talking today. Any second from the White House. This is going to be a little crazy. He's goingto. Yeah, because No matter what he talks about with the Corona virus, and he's going to say something about maybe Louis. You'll definitely say somebody, Herman Cain. They were close. I know what he's going to say anything about Louis. Hey, might not, but I think you know, be silly Not to just, you know, say I was gonna ask him, Let's be real. The reality is, though. What he said today joke or not trolling or not goes against everything that we are built upon about the elections and delaying the elections. We voted through civil wars We voted. We voted through World War that we have not ever delayed award. Measles outbreak smallpox outbreak We did all of those things. And the thought of delaying the elections for something that you have very little proof of delaying the election. There are Republicans there speaking out against it, By the way, Martha McSally. Doesn't like that idea. Fleischer. Yeah, I mean, it's a reason that we're here and the ridiculous thing to say. Trump earlier today, said maybe we should delay the elections. So what's gonna happen? He's gonna have a press conference any second. He'll talk about whatever he's going to talk about. And then if we can get to some questions, certainly that's going to be the first thing that people ask. Now. The other part of what's happening here is that In 22 minutes. Governor Doug Ducey has his check the box Thursday press conference, and we're wondering what he is. What is he going to say? Because if you look at the numbers, and I always have the numbers handy Because since the beginning of this pandemic, I got every single number you want. This week. Okay, roughly starting on Sunday 1918 121 123 125 100. Those of the cases new cases off Cove, it It is better. Then last week. It's way better than two weeks ago. The We haven't seen numbers like this since the Mask mandate happened on June 19th But the one thing that did happen today 172 deaths. That is a high again. I'll say I don't know when they died. It could have been two weeks ago. It could have been. I don't think everybody don't think 172 people died last night. No, no, it's the mat. They matched. What 78 of those is the way they did it. Those could've come from how long ago and What? What They were found to have Cove. It doesn't mean they died specifically from Cove it from what I understand, by the way, Lloyd Banks just chimed in 117 is his guests. 117 for Lloyd's seven degree with what we went 1 18 you and I want 1 18 Pop's Oh went 1 19 1 17 and I didn't write Becky Lynch down 17 1 17 Good for her. So the governor will hold the will hold a press conference at three. We're going to carry it live. It's gonna be a little close with Trump probably get 20 minutes of Trump and then we're gonna go to do see because No, it's local and it's going to take center stage. I just I wonder what the governor is going to do today is going to be similar to what he did last week. Talk for as much and as long as you possibly can. Without saying almost anything. Will he even have run on executive order? We've only got this room for 90 minutes. I gotta go. I might He might alright, We're waiting on Trump. He's going to take center stage any second. We're going to carry that live than Ducey live at three. It's the Gate O's and Chad show. Rough. Green's My dog. Yeah, that's doodle. He doesn't even know he's famous. He's talking to do the last night. He doesn't even know his famous doesn't know that people people ask about him all the time. It's really Yes, you go too rough greens dot com slash chad.

"We're discussing panic in the streets starring. Richard Would Mark Paul. Douglas Barbara Bel Getty's Jack Talents. Zero mastel directed by Eliah Kazan. This is the now playing. Co-host who's fond of Shishkabob Arnie Stewart? And this the CO host. Who Likes High Foreheads Jacob? Well we hope everybody at home is healthy and safe and likely quarantined. No matter where you're listening to us from the world. Yeah at the moment of recording. We are all separated apart. Watching the news is one of the shows that we've taped since this pandemic has hit America. We are hearing reports. There are over sixty thousand cases in America by the time this airs. Who knows but we are thinking about this pandemic and checking in with you. You guys told us you were interested in watching movies about viruses. I don't know about that you know I can understand why some people might be like. I want to turn that off. I don't WanNa think about that. It's scary to contemplate when you turn on the news these days. Yeah but people are I think indulging in it in some ways entertainment as of this recording contagion is the number four movie on Itunes and it has been for weeks and outbreak is in the top twenty five and let's face it. We had to kind of fill out our schedule. The new mutants is punted for the sixth time or something but James Bond got moved black widow. The new saw film fast and furious nine and just a couple days ago when we're recording. This wonder woman. Eighty four half of our schedule for the spring has no release date anymore. Yeah I thought it was going to be a super busy month person July and lots of new releases and now we don't know yes and we didn't really necessarily know how to approach virus movies. Either there are a lot of them and we've covered some of them and you can go find those in the archives. Twenty eight days later and I am legend. All the stand. I did a list. I wanted to see how many we've really done if people wanted to do. A full now. Playing virus retrospective. There's the I am legend trilogy. Starting with the last man on earth in nineteen sixty four. Yeah then Omega Man in seventy one. There's the stand from ninety. Four twelve monkeys. That counts right. Nine Hundred Ninety five definitely twenty eight days later two thousand and two resident evil also two thousand two twenty eight weeks later as well. Yep Yep rise of the planet of the apes and then its two sequels but rise. Came Out in twenty eleven. Dare I add it in the name of the King Two worlds. It might make you sick watching it. And there was someone plotting to release a virus. Yes and they did. That's the thing it's not if they were blinded they released it in the Kingdom of EB World War Z. And Day of the dead bloodline. Yeah I think what's different here because we do want to be sensitive. We're not doing the sensational Zombie outbreak. Type films I mean. We talked about all kinds of viral outbreaks. And we really wanted something that that would speak to. What's going on right now. Though yeah I agree I mean I want a very clear eyed view if you WANNA laugh and enjoy camping ones no judgment but it might seem inappropriate to make light of something that seemed so severe the way I thought about it is. It's more interesting even though we're told. Time and again. These are unprecedented times. Mankind has always dealt with viruses. It has always been a part of our story and it was interesting to think that we could go back through the decades and look at the ways that it was presented on film and how the general public thought about contagion and viral outbreaks. And it makes sense that we would start with panic in the streets in one thousand nine hundred fifty film when we were discussing the Tom Cruise film losing it Stewart. You pointed out that in the eighties. A lot of movies were being set in the fifties because baby boomers who were in their formative years in the fifties grew up and now they were writing films in the eighties so setting them thirty years earlier while thirty years or specifically thirty two years before nineteen fifty. The Spanish flu was out there so a lot of people. My Ninety nine year old grandmother is regaling me endlessly with this coronas. Nothing you should have been there for the Spanish flu. Nine hundred eighteen. Not many of us can say that we were there for that but it does sound awful. It killed a whole lot of people. And Yeah that comes up a lot. But even in the nineteen fifties which is the start. I think of the movie. Sub-genre virus movies kickoff with panic in the streets. Nine hundred fifty s were a scary time. That looked a lot like. Are you know right. Now we're thinking very much about protecting our seniors because they're what's at risk for covert nineteen but back in the nineteen fifties. Hide your kids to let them go to the pool. Don't let him play with other kids because if you do they're gonNA get infantile paralysis. Polio I mean the scare was real people close pools. They didn't let their kids out. He was considered a summer plague. School's out and then all of a sudden just populations of people all throughout the United States would suddenly be hit hard and kids would suddenly lose motor function and only able to breathe when they were put into an iron lung interesting statistic by the way it sounds a lot like corona only two percent of the population actually develop the disease and most of those cases were mild. Most of the people were not left with long term disabilities but it did impact a whole generation. I know my mom believes. She was diagnosed with polio. My Dad's second wife had it. You know the thirty second president. Fdr The reason why he was in a wheelchair he got it when he was thirty. Nine years old. You didn't even have to be a kit. People were living like we were back in. One thousand nine hundred eighty. When this movie came out there was a real field. If you send your kid to the movie theater. He touched another kid. This could happen wasn't until one thousand nine hundred eighty five. When Jonas Salk released his cure which was very controversial he was doing things that scientists disapproved of in order to get that vaccine and it worked one monkey equaled six thousand doses of immunization. And before you know it all the kids got to lead the iron lung and come home and famously. He didn't even keep the patent. It's something that warms my heart. When I think about it he thought it was unethical for anyone to profit from this cure and so he gave it away for free so there was panic in the streets in nineteen fifty and I think the other thing that might have inspired. The onset of movies talking about viruses was the smallpox outbreak of nineteen forty. Seven guy got on a bus in Mexico. City drove all the way to New York City. Didn't feel so well with feverish. The whole time went to Bellevue hospital a week later he died. That was when the doctors realized. Oh my God is smallpox. They had had a vaccine for smallpox for over century but because smallpox was so rare like nobody was immune from it so suddenly everyone. That man had come in contact when the bus was infected and it was being you know across the country so everyone literally was being impacted. Kind of like we are now. Everyone potentially could have smallpox what the government did was they started a big PR blitz. They put out commercials on the radio. Tv magazines go to our free health clinics. They opened them up all over the country. Get your vaccines and so everyone could sing the songs everyone knew about shots and the necessity of getting immune to smallpox. Hollywood jumps on trends. If something is big in the news. They're going to come up with a movie about it and I think that's the movie we're here to talk about today. I'd never heard of panic in the streets until we decided we were going to cherry pick. What is what the best the most iconic virus movie from each decade the fifties through the teens. And you said this is the top one on the list I I. I never heard of this. Yeah nor have I. This is totally new to me. I knew by reputation but I've never seen it either. I do think most people know Elia Kazan. He was a director more famous. Maybe for Broadway the stage but he helped pioneer the method acting. So if you know Brando if you know James Dean if you know all of those leading light actors for the nineteen fifties Elliott. Kazan probably worked with them and got them to be the actors that they were. Yeah I did look up this director and and unfortunately Brando. Unless he's in Superman or the godfather I I got a blind spot for his films as well as James Dean so I recognize. Yeah Kazan oh he's he's actually done some big movies but this one isn't one of his that I've heard of

only part of the story in the first episode in fact it was kind of a way of trying to back up another story which involved but the haunting of a home not far away where a a check a particularly a child's bedroom was the scene of multiple sightings of some kind of swirly smoke and a face that appeared at one point to this child in the smoke and and even scratches on the back of her neck not unlike what you described in your own life right exactly well I'll bet that family the mid cap family their story is they moved into a an old general store and that that building with was from the eighteen hundreds and I did have a a residence of patch to it and they were in love with the building and it was literally the last remaining building up all of the ones got beyond now ghost town but the once count of Iowa Michigan and the family thought okay well you know we're going to recap this we're going to put our savings into it it's going to be a big beautiful dream home big enough for them their son Josh and her daughter Edie bell and you know like we all heard many times in this field they start the renovation process and then that's when the activity began so yeah discuss that the idea of renovation is is a provocation well you know definitely from my experience you know we hear quite a bit you know and of course many cases I've you know read upon and watched you know through documentary that it does seem like a very real thing when people start to renovate a property it does seem to awaken something or perhaps just disturb something that was already there maybe they don't like the changes being made may need upsets them but either way it it really does seem to be something back that does create chaos in some sense so that was I mean for just to make that was the that's the plot of Beetlejuice yeah yes actually you're right and so I sort of struck by that when I was watching that part and the the it just like in Beetlejuice there was certain that the attic becomes a key part of this story the when you go up into the attic and what you find it if well anyway dolls are always creepy old dolls are even creepier an old broken dolls wearing baby clothes probably I mean short of a clown doll that's a that's pretty much at the top of the food chain of spooky dolls yes that all really is very creepy yes and it was one you actually found yeah it was it was up there they that family collects a lot of strange things you know and that's one thing that I did tell them you know throughout the investigation there that they need to be a little bit care for their purchasing these items because I did ask them once you know what what do you guys plan on doing with all these things and they just said well we just like to collect you know we we like were hobbyists we like to go to a state sales and garage sales and you don't and I did remind them that purchasing items from estate sale does we don't have the potential for objects attachment to your you know you never know with these items came from or what they meant to somebody but you know they made it pretty clear that that's that's the passion of theirs and they're going to keep on doing it but that that to see when I'm not I'm not be pushing back too hard on that but that seems a little bit of a contradiction from the concept of of that this town was that had been sort of emotionally scarred by having been the site of a smallpox outbreak which required what or at least seemingly took them to the townspeople it there was a kind of twisted logic to burning down the town to save it to burn down the houses and did that for the even nailing into the houses of forced quarantine on people who had smallpox which is why in this town of of of was it IV again or ida what was the town are you I have a half half and I got a half right both on so I in the town of Iowa Michigan that they the reason why that general store home was the only one left is all the other ones had been destroyed largely because of the smallpox outbreak so how could I was getting a little confused on whether it was an attachment to a doll that was brought into the house or whether it had something to do with on holy ground well no I mean definitely we believe on should be are derivative of the smallpox epidemic and all the people that died but when I was bringing up the doll specifically you know when they were telling me about all the different accounts you have understanding and of course you do that a lot of conversation as had walls yeah so then only so much actually makes it into you know because you're you're taking six or seven days of constant cutting that down to forty two minutes from but you know one thing I I did tell them when they're asking the wall you know what could this be your R. or why so many different spirits why do we hear female voices why do we hear male voices and you know and I just kind of give them the gamut of ideas are you know I personally thought it was the renovation that because they they thought maybe it was somebody that used to live in the home and I was just kind of going down the line of things that you know that sure disturbances well one thing you know that that I'll bring up about the doll that the psychic medium that we work with they say that I thought was very interesting is that sorry waiting because right there the very interesting thing that she said ellipsis put a pin in that because we got a break here so come back the very interesting thing that the psychic investigator said we'll get to coming up.

"And this is a narrative written by this prominent abolitionist? Harriet Jacobs and that the truth is is probably much much bigger than even what is here. is really sobering to think so normally starwood end here. She is free but this is Harriet Jacobs and she he is not done. She is working in Alexandria in Washington. DC organizing food and shelter for refugees from MM slavery and from civil war. As more and more formerly enslaved people travel north as the civil war goes on and as more and more people are emancipated. Eh or self emancipated. They are flocking into Virginia into Washington. DC into all of these areas with nowhere to go no support network generally the clothes clothes on their backs and she is hugely instrumental in organizing housing food. Work for all of these people. Yes Harriet they also realizes very quickly that her experience of learning to read and write are unusual and that so many of these formerly enslaved people have had had no education at all and she starts teaching she starts a school her daughter. Louisa eventually joins her and they dedicate their lives to educating tasting formerly enslaved people eventually they raise enough funds to have a building and we have a photo of that school on our website. It's an amazing photo. They're teaching children during the day. They're running classes for adults night. Wow they're dedicating so much time and energy to this project but but Harry Jacobs is also working on an activism front in so many other areas she is raising funds and insisting on proper medical care for black people raising using huge amounts of money to assist with massive devastating smallpox outbreaks. Where all of these formerly people have almost no resources to combat? These things and many doctors refused to treat them and she is making sure that every bit of care she can possibly find and provide is available to these people. Wow she is fighting and for the rights of black soldiers who fought in the civil war doing all of this with no one realizing who she is. They are not pudding. Harriet Jacobs the activists together with the author of incident in the life of a slave girl. Wow the book ends with the lines that I quoted at the beginning of this episode. which for those who know nineteenth century literature is a perfect perfect brilliant in version of a very classic nineteenth century trope for finishing up a novel the most famous example Being Charlie Brown tapes? Jane Eyre. They're the last line of Jane. Eyre being reader. I married him here. She is acknowledging what her readers are going to expect at the end of a story and how it differs. My story ends with freedom. Not with marriage She's again invoking vocal VAT aspirational ideal withheld from enslaved women. She's also destabilizing that ideal in the moment she's using it. It's such a fascinating way to end her story. I think it's especially poignant that as she wrote these words the civil the war has not happened. The emancipation proclamation does not exist so many people are still suffering what she suffered and she hasn't been given a chance to accomplish any of the incredible work she is going to do after the civil war. This is how Harriet Jacobs chose to end that. What part of her story? It has been painful to me in many ways to recall the dreary years past in bondage I would gladly leaf. Forget them if I could yet. The retrospection is not altogether without solace for with those gloomy recollections. Come tender memories of my good old old grandmother like light fleecy clouds floating over a dark couple.
