How worried should you be about the new Covid-19 variant?
"Dr david fichman is an epidemiologist a professor at the school of public health at the university of toronto. He's our first call when something. Scary appears around covert. Hello david hello. It's it's good to be here. I want to start by repeating version of a question that i asked you. I guess Close to this time a year ago but this time about the new covid variant that has been found in the uk and is now being found in canada and elsewhere and my short question is i. How worried should we be about this. You you know. I i think it's some it's a matter of Being cautious actually planning for the worst hoping for the best we don't really know how widespread the sun new strain is Is going to be it. It probably has already escaped from the uk. We know we've got a few instances of of with it's called the b. one one seven lineage. And we've got a few of those identified here in canada. The data from the uk are concerning. They suggest that it may be a strain of virus. That's better better adapted to transmission in humans that it's got a Communication that allows it to to bind to human cells. Better to something called the ace receptor. And what you see in the uk data is that this strain sword of appeared in september and over running the other other strains that have been circulating in the uk and it's sort of outpacing them which suggests by itself that it may well be fitter better adapted to infect human beings. It's always hard with with with a new variant of a virus viruses mutate all the time. So so there's lots of different strains of this thing. If you have a big outbreak that just happens to be caused by one particular strain of virus if you just look at that in isolation is going to look like that virus is more infectious and more fit in transmits better because it said you know. It becomes over represented as a result of having caused outbreak. So so you. You can be misled by things like that. Say you know you have a superspreader event. The strain that was associated with that superspreader event is going to look more infectious because lots of people suddenly have it. Even if it's exactly the same transmissibility as some as other strains but what you see with this be one one seven variant is. It started it seems in southern southern england and you can see it sort of moving through the country and wherever it goes it sort of catching up with and then surpassing existing strain In those regions sort of leaving them behind to what extent dots driven this third wave of infections that they're now seeing in the uk is still unclear. But that's a plausible mechanism for this that you have a new more fit variant. That is just out competing. The virus and so it's causing a higher fraction of infections. So you know it looks as though this is. This is a fitter fitter virus and that's to be expected over time right because it's it's important to remember this viruses. An animal virus sars to was probably a bat virus. That's moved into a new species moved into human beings and as it passes through millions and millions of people. You know we're up about eighty five million. I counted infections worldwide. So probably getting close to something one and a half or two billion infections worldwide with with all of those passes you know in in some mutation of the virus the better adapted viruses are going to get selected out so something like this is sort of expected over time that it becomes a better fit for our species if that is the case here then you know the obvious questions are it's fetter is it also better at killing people you know. Is it more virulent. And in general the direction of something like that would actually be the opposite. You would Expect that part of becoming a more successful virus doesn't just involve me better infecting people but also involves you being less likely to make people severely ill so that they can be isolated you know prevent onward infection and less likely to kill people because if you kill someone they can't do any infecting adaptation is probably over time going to go in the direction of making the pathogen less fearless. We just don't have enough data yet to know whether or not that's the case it doesn't it doesn't right now look as though this is either better or worse than the the prior strain buyers in terms of killing people then the other very important question right now is is the virus. Mutated enough that vaccines were starting to get into people's arms might not be effective.
What we know - and what we don't - about the new coronavirus variant
"Normal for viruses to mutate. So how alarms should we be about the emergence of this highly infectious variant of the Corona virus, which is now prevalent in southern England, and if the variant is that much easier to transmit? How do you stop? It spread both within the UK and around the rest of the world On Sundays, its impact was starting to be felt. Britain's Health secretary Matt Hancock said people had to act as if they all had. Variant. The new variant is out of control when we need to bring it under control, and this news about the new variant has been a Um, incredibly difficult and, frankly, an awful year on bond. It's important for everybody to act essentially act like they might have the virus. And that's the way that we can control it together. It's not something for government or individuals. It's something for us all to do together. But could this you vary into the coronavirus also Be resistant to the vaccines that have been developed to counter the existing strain. I've been speaking to Dr Lucy Van Dorf, senior research fellow in Microbial Genomic, said the UCL Genetics Institute. What's name for certain about this virus mutation at the moment. What we know is we have a variant in circulation, which is carrying 14 defining mutations, which we haven't seen in the combination we see in this particular variant before This includes seven within the spike protein off the Corona virus, which is the protein that's most important for binding and entering human cells. One of the reasons that this has raised some concern, it's because some of these previously identified mutations have been implicated. In having some kind of biological relevant So the vast majority of mutations we have in this virus and and mutations are very much a natural process and this thousands of variance in circulation have no impact. But in this case we do have sets of mutations, which have been flagged as may be relevant. So are important in terms of the ability of the virus to bind to human cells, and also potentially for some degree of communication. And so this is one of the reasons together with the A marked increase in frequency of this particular Varian within the UK that scientists are studying it really very carefully right as we speak. But what makes this

Burger King Urges People to Buy Takeout -- at Other Restaurants
"What a year. This has been so this last friday before the holidays. Here's a little sweetness. From an unexpected source burger king the multibillion dollar fast food chain is urging hungry people to buy takeout meals right now. Hardly a shocker. But here's what is in. The uk and france burger king is urging diners to eat somewhere. Else there's more to life than a whopper burger king. Uk said early this week in an instagram post. Is there really well anyway. The previous day. The government announced that london other parts of southern england would move into tier three restrictions because of rising cova rates under tier. Three restaurants pubs must close with the exception of offering takeout and delivery meals as in the us. Corona virus restrictions put thousands of small businesses and their employees at risk in response to the crisis. Burger king's instagram post extolled the virtues of variety of independent eateries. It said quote. There are many great dishes from thousands of restaurants that deserve to be as famous as the hopper for consumers. The call to action was clear. Hold off on the burgers. Independent restaurants need all our support the chain stated but the gesture went even further burger. King is pausing its own drool. Worthy burger picks and until those smaller restaurants can reopen. The chain is offering its valuable instagram. Real estate to independent restaurants for free burger king invited them to share photos of their own signature dishes on the b k account along with the hashtag walker and friends. Perhaps it's the dearth of good news. Or maybe it's because advertising someone else's product is well hardly ever done but the post went. Viral reaction was swift and almost entirely positive newspaper called money control called the campaign a noble initiative. All of a sudden. I have renewed faith in humanity. One man named bob. Hayes tweeted on twitter. Another observer commented that burger king quote has won many hearts across the globe others call the initiative bold classy an even astounding. Naturally someone couldn't resist. They called it a whopper of a campaign from a strategic perspective. The campaign is indeed a hopper that helps burger king further. It's already solid identity as a marketing mastermind. This is what an industry leader looks like. Acts like an advertises like commented copywriter. Dave delicado on linked in indeed one observer wondered what would happen if other fortune five hundred companies followed a similar playbook also on linked in ian k a manager at an israeli air traffic business. Mused imagine this happening the travel industry with a giant. like american. saying we can't get you home to israel right now but united can here's their link and safe. Travels burger king's instagram initiative follows. It's equally shocking when a month earlier with hospitality industry under siege burger king. Uk suggested followers. Patronize its actual competitors. Mcdonald's taco bell. Kfc among them. Now we have only one question for the fast food chain and it's not about pickles or fries. It's when are you going to do this in the us be k. But despite that niggling negative we have to end. Positively burger king's generosity hits. Just the right note for a world been through far too much in twenty twenty. Hopefully it shining a little good karma on the holidays just when we need it
'New variant' of coronavirus identified in England
"Another day another potential. New strain of coronavirus norman. In southern england the uk health secretary. Matt hancock says that there could be a new strain circulating there that seems to be growing faster than the existing variants and a papal get worried when we start talking that new strains but how much credence should we give. Today's climbs nor lot. You're one day that might be a strain. That's really muscular. Strain that's causing a lot of problems. the bars is mutating all the time there are selection processes that go on. You might remember that when the safest outbreak occurred there was a lot of fuss made about a possibly highly infectious strain people. Paint that and a lot of people pooh-poohed that in our community really not hair very much since people who were very quiet about the south australian strain with this one could be a strain that's a bit more infectious than others dominated. It's much more likely to be that. Somebody's arrived from europe. Brought this in. And that's the one that spread through clusters preferentially and if you look at it then you see that spread there. I mean it was really yesterday that the estimate that from one medical conference in boston the spread of that from when you look at the genetics of the spread that cluster has resulted in three hundred thirty thousand infections from a medical conference. That's ironic from a medical conference from one super spreading event. So just imagine if somebody happened to turn up at that super spreading event with a particular mutation of the virus and it spreading you think. Oh well let's taking over america. It's just happens to be the virus that you came to that medical conference with and picked somebody on the cheek and away you go. They call it the founder effect that it's not necessarily that it's it's better first spreading or it's more infectious. It's just that it's the one that got their first. Yes and the fundraiser's usually described as somebody arriving migrant arriving in a an isolated population and it's spreading from there so for example from memory there was a founder effect with a metabolic problem with Bone disease in quebec. If i remember rightly there's the founder effect of huntings tunes disease in tasmania and therefore you a lot more. Hunting season has meaning you otherwise we'd have just because somebody got off the board with that gene and it spread through the population. So so that's really what you normally call the finding effect but yeah you can get it with the virus as well and that's probably what's happened here in the uk that it's just somebody with that. Virus has been in a super spreading and spreading around and is not something to keep you up at night at least not yet and if you listen to corner cast. We'll tell you when you go to stay awake at night. that's right. So this mutation change the viruses behavior in any way or is there any concern about whether it will still be protect would still be protected against it by the vaccines in development. Well just talking to an australian researcher. Who's expert in this field. The british mutation has mutations on top of the vars that was seen for example in malvern. And so they're they're kind of mutations on mutations here simplifying. what is a very complicated message from its researcher. essentially there. It is possible that this variant in britain cooed evade vaccines. But but he. He doesn't really think that's the case. He thinks that's the vaccine. The vaccine should be brought enough to be able to cope with it. The question that is raised by this researchers informing us on this. Is that the mutation. That's buried in this in this virus in the uk suggests that could be a little reservoir. Which brings you back to the mink in other words that maybe there is another jump from animals to humans beyond wuhan and that. That's what spreading. Here i mean that's i mean that's a long bow to pool but that's one of the possibilities here and of course it's one of the reasons why they slaughtered these mink in northern europe. Because they were worried that you actually would get a second or however many you have no idea how many animal reservoirs have been transferred to humans over the last few months but this might be another one and so here is that this could be jump from an animal reservoir. Maybe maybe not but It it just shows that probably do the right thing by sacrificing these music.
Travel to Devon and Cornwall, England
"Welcome to amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Devon and Cornwall. I'd like to welcome to the show. Ryan Duffield from Devon who has come to talk to us about the city of Plymouth in southern England and also the surrounding area, including Devon and Cornwall. Ryan welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me Howie. Good well, you know and it's funny because we just talked about the English coast, but we've moved a little further to the West and talk. Talk about a different region of the coast than we did on the show recently when we talked about Suffolk and the the downs. Why should someone go to Plymouth Plymouth? Actually it's a fantastic city. It's a city that goes amazing maritime history and tradition that dates right back to the medieval times, but actress quite often overloaded when people think of cities in England. They think oh of Lunden Bama again. Manchester Liverpool perhaps. I think Plymouth is just as much. Interest is end if those cities, but it's just north of us so much, and I think particular twenty American. Listeners interested is also the city where the pilgrim father set sail on the mayflower. Sixteen twenty associated with the traditional thanksgiving. S Pre interesting point. Is also surrounded by beautiful coastline. It's right on the border of the county's of Devon and Cornwall these are two of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK down in the South West of England, said Scott lost offer. Willing we're looking for dividend cornwall if we go down to the English map and you go far bottom left. That's where we are, and if you go further bottom further left from there, you end up in the ocean. So we're. Right on the south coast of Devon Oklahoma so are literally facing out to the Atlantic okay well and facing out towards the south. Yes, excellent well, what? Are. You GonNa. Recommend Fourth Festival is obviously starting in the city centre, so the city is actually pretty much based around the coast and its large harbours, so I would say starting day Sutton Haba, which is the main harbor in the city and that so where the city spreads out from I'm from around the. You've all sorts of things to say side. You've got things like the mayflower steps. Steps, which is where there's the pilgrim fathers actually set sail from and this museum dedicated to that you've also got what's the Barbican? which is this old coupled street state specs, medieval periods, which is full of these is correct, slim pubs and bars, restaurants shops things like that, and it's one of the few passes cities. The city was actually bombed June. Sacramento War by the Nazis and the. The city was destroyed, and this is one of the well preserved areas of that city out, also recommend site just basically following the coastline of the city's known as Britain's Ocean City for good reason, because it will revolve around that and overlooking the area. What looks like is huge, fool trust, but what actually is actively operating? Royal Marines and Royal Navy base. That's right in the heart of. Of the city and they still have people that you can save people, training and things, and they actually do tours of that interestingly and I'm not sure how many military basis you can know many Abitur tour during the middle of the day. You can't do that well and it seems like one of the reasons they do that, too. Is You mentioned? This is not a new military base. Quite historical, so this is where the ships sailed out to fight the Spanish Armada for absolutely, and the city is very synonymous with Francis Drake. Who is the man who led the defeating of the Spanish the? He was from Plymouth. Things like the main shopping center in the city named optimus could drake circus, and you'll find lots of other places around the city named after him. You also have along. Along the Bob sell them this coupled medieval street. You have the Plymouth Gin distillery, which is actually the oldest gin distillery in the country, and of course you can go in then you can have tools that you can find out how the GIN is made. You can find out the botanic WHO's they use? Jin's at the end of that. So if you're GIN, Fan Pathak place to go we'll. Get into more detail on all these things. So in terms of the BARBICAN. For instance you mentioned the Plymouth Gin distillery. There are different pubs and things. Do you have a favorite pub? Is there someplace that we ought to check out?
