Steven McDonald is in Beijing. A woman named one alleged in court the during their five years of marriage.

WHO team visits Wuhan hospital

"A team from the World Health Organization investigating the origins of the coronavirus in China has visited the hospital in Wuhan, where some of the first patients officially diagnosed with covert 19 were treated. The W H O team plans to visit lamps, markets and hospitals during its remaining two weeks in Wuhan from there, Steven McDonald reports Doctors here. The Genii in town Hospital have published research about war hands. Earliest known coronavirus case, scientists from the World Health Organization came to this center, which treats infectious disease patients on the second full day out of quarantine. Wh o team is now able to visit sites like this for face to face interviews. However, their main role is to analyze work already carried out in China rather than conduct their own studies. The international experts have said that the process of tracking the origins of the Corona virus is highly complicated and may take years to complete.

WHO investigators begin looking into coronavirus origin in Wuhan, China

"By the World Health Organization into the origins of the Corona virus pandemic is now getting underway in the Chinese city of Wu Han, where the disease first came to light. Earlier today, China warned that the members of the W H o team should be allowed to work free from political interference following calls from the United States for the probe to be robust and clear. A team of experts has just completed its two week period of quarantine in Wuhan. The BBC Stephen McDonnell is in the city and he told me more Basically, we've been following this international team of scientists around today We saw his they lifted quarantine until to go toe are normal Hotel, the big, rambling complex of a place where they'll be able to have face to face meetings with their Chinese counterparts. I mean having discussions via video link, but now they can sit down and talk to one another about the possible causes of the Corona virus. I think one thing that's pretty crucial is there's been a bit of misunderstanding. I think as to what this team is going to do. They're not really going to be doing their own research. They're going to be examining what the Chinese scientists already have. And then looking at what's missing. I mean, how do we get to the bottom of what caused this virus does new research after the commission or something along those lines? I'll be then putting together a report and moving on from there. What they won't be doing is in two weeks telling us we've found out the cause of the Corona virus have stressed to us out complicated. This is It's a very difficult thing to work out. It's going to take time, maybe even years and frankly, asked us all just to wait and see what they come up with other scientists visiting the laboratories that some people say the virus might originally have escaped from in short, no They see the lab leak theory as a conspiracy theory, really? And unless they've got some solid reason, they say, scientific reason. They're one of me going down that path. What they're looking at is the zoonotic origin of the virus. In other words, the question of which animal it possibly came from, maybe a bat say into another animal, and then finally into human beings and how that could have taken place when they're even saying it could have come from about overseas or even a person, another country and that the virus entered Wuhan buy somewhere else. That's a very contentious thing for them to have said because the Chinese government has been really pushing this line that we owe. It probably came from overseas. I mean, one Foreign Ministry official even said it definitely came from overseas. So they'll be locking that the W H O is considering this, But either way, the scientists would there be from other countries or China have somehow going to get above the politics in this And really mine into the research into the doctor to see what they can find. That was the BBC Steven McDonald reporting from the Chinese city of Wu Han, and he'll be following the progress of that Wh o team there.

Coronavirus death toll tops 1000 in China, US reports 13th case

"Across the globe the spread of coronavirus shows no signs of slowing down this week Chinese health officials reported that more than forty thousand people have been infected globally the death toll is also on the rise with more than one thousand reported dead so far the majority of those cases are in China where everyday life is at a standstill in an effort to contain the corona virus Chinese authorities have implemented mass quarantines across central China specifically around the city of Wuhan and who bay province where the fires first broke out a government imposed lockdown in the region has restricted transportation and people are being encouraged to remain in their homes plus many businesses and schools are still close across China but despite the quarantine the number of confirmed infections continues to climb daily at the same time a different kind of quarantine is taking place online the Chinese government has been working to suppress discussion of the outbreak since late December when people first started posting about it across the internet for more on this we're joined by two journalists who have recently been quarantined Steven McDonald Beijing based correspondent with the BBC and Sean lead China based correspondent for the Wall Street journal thank you both for coming back on the program hiring good don't do now both of you have personally been under quarantine during this outbreak Sean let's start with you how do you get out of quarantine so I was in quarantine in China into a province for twelve days and essentially the local authorities told us that the quarantine was going to be extended indefinitely and the only way out of out of the city where we were and how to a province was to take at the American evacuation flight out of lawn so that's what we did with our colleague last Friday so now I'm in quarantine again and the US at Travis Air Force base for another fourteen fourteen days north California and how does it how are the conditions compared of from China to where you are right now it's it's very different so in China out we weren't allowed to leave our rooms because at a certain point they were afraid that we were actually infected yeah even our temperatures were on a normal so in the US were allowed to leave our rooms you know we're allowed to go outside on who to a hotel grounds we were on were on air base in a hotel and but they put a temporary barricades around the hotel grounds guarded by US marshals in case we go stir crazy and make a run for it but you know there's a striking difference between the two and how did you feel stir crazy at any point during this last few weeks intranet definitely because we were confined to our rooms and we were there for over a week so even though it was very nice hotel you get you know you kind of get sensory deprivation for not having seen are you know Arab spoken to anyone else for over a week I Stephen you were just released from quarantine in Beijing correct what was your ex how was your experience different so what I'm two losses we went into who by province from who none that's in neighboring province we wanted to go in that way because we knew that these sort of lockdowns was starting we thought if we have a car that's going to break plates it's going to restrict this so we went to Hunan hide a car and driving now on the way Ian pot from going past you know the more more serious roadblocks as you approach to buy we went in sort of bar a Backstreet I think we thought it would be pretty easy to go down this dirt road and sneak into this province but even there there was a police roadblock and they're like oh you can go in but when talk back out again at this point you realize that we're gonna lock down old from by these sixty million people effectively you know you're looking down the entire population of easily and you know we never the less pressed on a drive through various ghost town like places of nobody in on the streets and some small cities there and we ended up at one place where in a hospital and interviewing a patient on the inside bira phone app who told us he was pretty wide exit gone into the hospital he had a temperature but he thought he didn't necessarily have the coronavirus when you eighteen he thought he might catch it anyway because I'd stop him in this ward with other coronavirus patients and so he sort of inevitably thought he is going to end up being infected anyway at this point the police turned up and some local government officials and they didn't want us to be there in their town at reporting they sort of wanted us to move on and was saying look you know I really want to get back to not at some point but now we can't go back there now it's locked down and all at this point they decided well I'd rather breach their own quarantine rules that have a team of pesky journalists hang around there and so we had a police escort lights flashing it everything and the drivers back across out of who by and that's how we got out of that province and ended up returning to Beijing now anybody who's been in bay is advised to being quarantined for two weeks so we just decided to do it anyway like my boss said beat up stateside home for two weeks but it's funny the response to this in all aspects of this emergency it differs from city to city so two of my colleagues went back to Shanghai now in Shanghai to be much more strict on journalists there they had police and medical James knocking on the door making them signed documents you will not leave your home for two weeks at central in Beijing it hasn't been like that I just got a call from the foreign ministry all heard you've been there he's sick he's dying and I'm like I look out the self see light at so just depends where you end up in terms of how strict it is shown in the Wall Street journal your paper had a headline stating that president xi inspected a hospital after quote a conspicuous absence has his absence had a political reverberations yes I mean she's alright he hasn't been seen publicly add any sort of hospital or talking to patients he actually dispatch the premier to will Honda few weeks ago to visit hospitals and speak to you and talk to patients and medical workers so it it's it you know it's it's the fact that he hasn't shown his face and in the front lines of the outbreak has been very conspicuous especially as public anger has surged over the weeks with how the government has been handling it and last week when that young doctor and Honda whistleblower doctor Lee when they are on diets from after being infected with corona virus are there was just a huge outpouring online of people questioning where was the job where was the government how how it works how were they handling or mishandling the outbreak and so how has the government responded to this anger so they have aggressively censored a lot of people's comments online the the sensors have been working overtime and on the other hand they've also been sending more higher level health experts to bay and two will Hines so just yesterday they to a province ousted the two top level provincial health health officials and actually replaced up replace them with a veteran health official from the national health commission so it appears like they're bringing in more experts also the team from the W. H. O. landed and China yesterday to help the government's response so so that those are Sir two aspects of

Why because because when each camped on his finger because he was a nail biter he developed something called Per Piranha Kia which is a bacterial infection of of your skin around your fingernails?

'cause nail biting I do not want you all to end up like this due to its Bobby Free Bobbins Jerry. Instantly get the podcast. The odd cast and Bob and Sheri Van Cise is all right. Greetings to whoever is actually listening to Super Bowl Monday. I learned something so interesting. Not about the game itself. Because I can't tell you. How many times Kevin Evan? My husband and James O'Keefe have explained what touchback is to me and I still can't remember or describe it to you but I learned that Every football that's ever been used in a in a super bowl has been made in the same small town in Ohio at the Wilson Football factory every single ones around and wait. There's more Because I I asked Kevin when I came in like when right before halftime when he's watching the game and I said to him. Do they play with the same football for the whole. The game is at Lake superstitious. That is it a magic football like once they once they start the game. It's bad luck to play with the different football. I know one quarterback that had a magic. Yeah and you know what he told me. Max I bet you already know this. He told me that every super bowl starts off with one. One hundred and eight game balls and twelve kicker balls right right. I'd over a hundred. Yeah I did not know that I just read that the other day myself. I didn't know it either. I mean I've I've figured they use more than one but I didn't know they had that. Many are football players superstitious like baseball players like no one is is more superstitious than baseball players. Because like let's say you're a full year football player and you're in the Super Bowl and you have an amazing first-quarter wouldn't so you want that ball to be the ball you take into the second quarter. I think you're used to the realization that that's not going to be the case and I don't. I think they have superstitions. I mean I can't speak for the players but I die without that in baseball. You got a lot of time to think in inflict pull not quite as much there in the dugout. cout going you know. I'm doing pretty good today. I wonder if these new socks had something to do with it. All of a sudden you're wearing the same socks for like a month and football players. Don't do that do you think so. Todd I don't know I I mean I've never heard about superstitions with football players. Look like with baseball players. There are I mean just depends on the players but there are guys. We're the same socks or the same jockstrap or you know they list do certain amount of music. You'll see players same jocks. They have the same routine. They come out of the dressing room and they you know they. They're wearing their headphones listening to music. I'm really really glad that I'm GonNa make it through this whole life not having lucky jockstrap. I think I probably think for you as well. Didn't Tom Brady play with the same shoulder pads from when he was in college. Yeah we talked about that on sports that something. You won't see Hung Up Sports Cafe Question. So why did they have somebody. Football's is it because after a couple of plays the football all gets Kinda beat up. I would think that's the reason that's like the they change baseballs all the time because if you if you get it scrubbed at all it really does and there is a rotating balls in and out each team has a certain amount of footballs that they bring. Because the quarterback will that says Tom Brady had the magical balls that's how he got the magic balls yes because he was able to his his trainer their football mad. If you want if you watch your job between every play the they'll they'll bring a new ball in throws throw the the one that just was in the play who gets those old balls that were in the super bowl for like a minute to those go to charity or are they sold as memorabilia probably autographed and they're probably sold off off to charity. I would suspect and they end up in the recreation room of your local Chevy dealer so there you go. That's something. You might not have known all those. Footballs.

"China's president Xi Jinping marked forty years of economic reform with a major speech today. She said China with the world's second largest economy will not develop at the expense of any other country. But he also said Beijing will not be pushed around by any other country. Joining us now is the BBC's Steven McDonnell. He's in Beijing. Stephen in this speech, president she did not take on the trade war between the US and China directly. Did he now? That's right. He didn't specifically refer to the United States all the tried wall. But I think the reference made by Jim Pinkerton. Nobody dictating how China's economy should develop was seen by many observers as a reference to the US saying that the Chinese economy should Ivan not more, you know, it was quite a strident speech in that way. In fact, in many respects, he was saying that unapologetically the military is fully. Controlled by the communist party that the communist party is is at the heart of everything here. And in fact, the coal it's human rights and things like this have been improved by potty control in on those those lost two points. Again, many China watches would think that's a bit rich of him trying to put that argument in the climate of things as they are today. Under Xi Jinping's rule, however on other fronts, like development, even the most hod, and I get cynical China watch. It would have to say the Pasi has had its chievements. He'll suspect about the environment, for example. And how there's been a big price to pay in China full this breakneck economic growth into of soil. Water pollution, and that China has to move in a mole grain direction. So it was a broad Ryan djing space that went on for one and a half hours touching many subjects and the message was there's going to be improvements in the future about with the Pasi firmly in control, I was speaking to a friend who does business in China's based in China the other day who said that for the first time that he can remember that people in China powerful, people in China are starting to think, well, maybe this economy is not going to just keep going up and up and up and up for it's the I can see the way that it has been for so long. Did you get any sense of a lack of confidence in China's economy in the speech today from president? She absolutely not. He's is the ton of is speech was we're all go. I mean, he didn't even for example, acknowledge the the big problems with debt when you hear the pre. Bahia speak. He's much more likely to acknowledge such problems. Nothing like that from shea Jinping today in reference to potential housing bubbles or anything like that. It was just with had this remarkable growth. The envy of the countries. It's hovered around nine percent for decades. I mean, many Chinese latest below him. I've tried to talk down these expectations in recent years and said China needs better growth bet equality growth, not just fast growth because high speed growth has produced all sorts of anomalies and bridges to know where and other ladies out quite open in terms of talking about that as a problem, but we had none of that from Xi Jinping today. It was just this is a remarkable achievement from our potty. And so there was not much of a suggestion of any vulnerability whatsoever in the Chinese system today. That's the BBC's Steven McDonald joining us from Beijing. Stephen. Thank you good to speak to. Two..

In China, Bill Gates Encourages the World to Build a Better Toilet

"To show people. This is what could be hitting the market very soon. And as if the really ram home, the message he stood up in front of a very large crowd with a big glass job full of human excrement, saying this is what it's all about the laughter of the audience as you can imagine. But it is a very serious issue and afterwards he sat down with the BBC to speak about it. And his some of what he told me. Rich countries, we have sores you take clean water in plus some of the dirty water out in almost all cases. There's a premanent plant as we have these newer cities with lots of less wealthy people in them, those sorts of not been built. And in fact, it's not likely they ever will be. And so the question is could you do it could you process human waste without that sewer system. Literally having some sort of chemical burning that would take away what's bad, which is the smell and the disease causing named human waste. And then most have a little bit of ask that, you could simply treat his garbage. This has he said anything about what's the likely cost of these new prototypes? These these flushless varieties would be well, this is actually a problem. I mean, you can imagine in some countries to put an expensive. Bit of kids like a toilet into a very poor place and people might start pulling it apart to sell the the pieces of it rather than being happy to have a new toilet. So I did ask Bill Gates about this. And he was quite Frank about it when he answered the question, you're only going to pay hundreds of dollars for a toilet. That's really fantastic maybe five hundred dollars. Now, you're saving all the cost of the water, those processing plants, but we have to bring it down. You know, almost a factor of ten from what the early models for like, but that's not atypical for new product markets. And that was Bill Gates who was speaking to our Beijing.
