Europe's coronavirus resurgence: Are countries ready to prevent a 'second wave'?
"According to the UK Daily Mail. Second wave is striking EUROPE, Spain reintroduces lock down Greece's He's worrying rising cases. The virus is more active in Germany amid warnings friends could quote lose control at any moment. According to the UK Daily Mail. A second wave of covert 19 appears to be striking Europe, forcing Spain to reimpose lockdowns in case is speaking to a three month high in Greece. Head of Germany's doctors union has declared the country is already in the midst of the second wave because people have flouted social distancing rules. Well, this is perfectly predictable. You can't people keep people locked down forever. For literally years in time. It's not a thing that you could dio instead, you're going to have to at some point allow people who are young and healthy to go out there, and if they get it, they get it. That is fact what Sweden is doing in Sweden, which remember until five minutes ago was the bad guy. Sweden has basically flattened her. It looks like Sweden may have reached her immunity is what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, in other countries, they got a problem. In fact it it seems pretty obvious what's happening here. Italy has not seen a second object. Why hasn't Italy Tina? Second uptick because they got nailed. Basically, here's the rule If it burned three population maybe you're done. It is not burned through your population. You probably are not done. Spain's 8500 cases over the weekend and all inclusive resort in Majorca was shut down. Two towns north of Madrid has been put under strict lock down as well. Finland today announced plans to reintroduce recommendations to work from home whenever possible. By August 1st, Finland's cases had risen by more than 300% in two weeks. That run understands us that governor of Florida can't believe. Also governor of Finland Donald Trump, obviously blowing it over in Finland is blowing it over in France as well. Authorities in France grappling with a sharp increase in fresh cases, which has seen more than 7002 infections within the last week. As well as a rise in the number of people being treated for covert 19 in the I C U Around 1200 cases are being reported for day. Two weeks ago, he rolling average with 719. Meanwhile, in Germany, they're seeing an uptick as well. Some 730 cases have been reported each day on average this week against the 460 being recorded her day about two weeks ago. So the second wave is, in fact hitting Europe. It really is kind of the first wife. It really is more the 1st 1 because the first wave Basically just got a little bit squished. And delayed Basically, everything just got delayed. Meanwhile, Sweden seems to be coming out the other end of this. According to Newsweek. As of Sunday, the latest death rate in Sweden for 100,000 people was reported to be 56.4 figure is lower than that reported in the U. K 69.6, Spain 16.8 and Italy, according to the latest report Sunday by Johns Hopkins University. The UK currently has the world's 4th 4th highest death toll Spain in Italy, where the former to European countries hit worse by the outbreak. Sweden's latest case fatality ratio proportion of deaths compared total cases was reported to be about 7.1% and figure is more than half the percentage reported in the UK, half that of Italy in Belgium and nearly half that of France. The reason being that a lot of young people are getting it in Sweden, and he's burned through some of the young population and now they're basically done. Sweden's 70 rolling average daily new cases has been mostly declining since as far back as April 16th when the average was in 99. The average dropped it to two average daily new deaths on August 2nd, according to world Ometer. New infections for 100,000 people in Sweden reported in the past 14 days has dropped from 46% compared to that reported in the 14 days prior. Meanwhile, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, each spiking between 58 206% in new cases. New cases in Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the other places that supposedly handled it better than Sweden have also seen. Their percentage is increasing at around three times the percent drop in new cases scene in Sweden in the past two weeks. So what That sort of says is, it looks like Sweden. Maybe this thing it may look like it's over in Sweden. Under technologies epidemiologist, Sweden's Public health agency. What we've cut down on movement in society quite a lot, if compared how much we travel in Scandinavian countries. The decrease in travel is the same in Sweden, as in the neighboring countries. In many ways, the voluntary measures we've put in place in Sweden have been just as effective as complete lock down in other countries. In other words, when you tell people don't travel, all that much people take it pretty seriously. The point here is that for all the talk about how we know how to handle this, and we just have to shut everything down, Lock down this lock down there. Sweden and locked down and may be the smartest of all sweet may be the smartest of all.
Why COVID-19 poses a special risk during pregnancy
"As it seems kind of to always the case these days there are a lot of open questions about corona virus and something else. In this case it's pregnant women like are these women at greater risk for more severe infections can the virus infected fetus? How likely is transmission at birth from an infected mother Maribeth? I know you don't have answers to all these questions but let's start with what are some solid trends at this point. For example are pregnant women more at risk if they're infected, it seems to be the case that they are although the data is very incomplete given though what the consequences are from a severe infection, it's really better to err on the side of caution and assume that. Yes, they are at increased risk and that wouldn't be totally surprising because it's known from our understanding of other respiratory viruses that women can get much more severe infections and have worse outcomes. That's particularly well established for influenza and it's thought to be the case for SARS Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. That's caused by a similar virus. That's a close cousin of the new corona virus. There are a couple of biological factors that point to why this might be the case particularly how the immune system changes during pregnancy. How might that contribute to more severe infections? The immune system in pregnancy is like a moving target it's constantly adjusting HASTA. Hit this tricky balance of still repelling foreign invaders but not rejecting the fetus, which after all half of the fetus is not from mom and might look foreign to the immune system and what can happen is that things get outta whack perhaps there are worse infections than might have otherwise been the case. At the same time we know that the new corona virus causes really severe inflammation in particularly serious cases of infection. And if the mother's immune system is also active as it is in pregnancy, it's possible. Some experts think that this. Piles on with additional inflammation and that you get a worse situation than you would have had had mom not been pregnant. So it's not well understood but it's thought that there can be unhealthy interplay pregnancy also puts stress on the long Lewis and the cardiovascular system these are both too targets of Kobe eighteen. How is the body affected by pregnancy in such a way that the lungs cardiovascular system are harmed and how does Cova nineteen effect the lungs cardiovascular system sure. Will you imagine if the woman particularly as she goes into later pregnancy in the fetus larger and larger has decreased breathing room That is GonNa, make any respiratory infection in which you're breathing capacity is being affected by the infection itself. That's going to double down and make it even tougher to adequately oxygen at your blood. You basically have less room to breathe right and that's a serious impediment. If you're already sort of breathing at bat reduced level and then you have a virus causing an infection that is filling some of your breathing space with fluid, you can imagine how you could get into serious trouble quite quickly. What about the cardiovascular issues and how does that interact with the new corona virus? Well there's a couple of things one just the amount of work I mean the body. So amazing women pump by the time they're in late pregnancy, fifty percent more blood than they normally have. So there's a ton of blood circulating and that can lead to lots of fluid exiting into the lungs and making a bad problem worse, and then we know that the virus cannon does have bad effects on the heart and blood vessels which are already under strain because of the pregnancy. So again, the virus is potentially aiding and making worse this part that's kind of punching at the. Top of its weight already, there's a final effect that's not fully understood and not fully pin down, but it's known that the corona virus causes increased clotting in some patients. The blood has more of a tendency to clot will guess what in pregnancy the blood already has more of a tendency to plot. So now you layer an increased tendency to clot on top of an increased tendency to clot, and you can see where women can also get into trouble with clotting, which independently been a problem in serious of covid nineteen. We just talked about how the virus pregnancy my. Interact in a negative way. What is the evidence for the fact that women fare worse when pregnant and infected with a new coronavirus will there was a much notice steady that came out of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention late in June that showed that pregnant women with Cova. Did were up to fifty percent more likely to end up in intensive care and seventy percent more likely to end up needing a breathing machine. Then they're infected but non-pregnant peers. Now there, there's some caveats to that study number one they were not more likely to die which is reassuring. Number two even though this was a lot of pregnant women that CDC looked at about ninety, one thousand, it was only twenty eight percent of all the women of reproductive age that have had covert and have had their covert reported to. CDC, through early June. Why is that? Because these reports have a box that say check pregnancy status? Yes pregnant no not pregnant and many many basically seventy, two percent of the reports that CDC received came in without either. Box, checked, and so they couldn't use that data and that makes the study quite incomplete. There's a more comprehensive but much smaller study that was published by the public. Health Agency of Sweden into lie and it found that the women who were pregnant for landing in ICU, at six times the rate of non-pregnant women what's unique about this study is captured. All ICU. Missions in. Sweden and it used Disa- dominator, all non-pregnant and all pregnant women of reproductive. Agents Sweden. This study was very small however in the end only thirteen corona virus, infected pregnant women, and forty non-pregnant infected women were admitted to Swedish I see us in the timeframe of the study.
Jared Young Explains Why Kindness, Honesty, & Integrity Are His Top Priorities
"Jared Welcome to the show welcome a dose of leadership. Thanks to be here. Well I'm excited to learn more about employer advantage and really your leadership philosophy. It seems like I'm. Looking at your background man you've you've done a lot of things and now you're the president of employer advantage. Traveling the world working in various branches of government learning multiple language Arabic is that right to get that right you understand. Yeah, Eric my Undergrad is an Arabic. Wow. Well let's start. Let's talk a little bit about how we got to employ advantage. What was the kind of as you're going through school and working what was your dream at the time? I can tell you my dream was not to end up in. Joplin. Missouri. But I know my I guess my my dream candidate evolved. By the time I got through law school I knew I didn't want to be a lawyer and so I had to figure out. What I wanted to do. So I went into corporate law for a little while I was looking for a chance to pivot to the business side of things because I decided that's what I was really interested in. and. Had A a cousin in DC where I was working Who have happened to have a father-in-law that was? Had founded a business along time ago and was looking for some help some young blood to get into the business to. Start with. A succession plan. and. He learned me out to the Midwest and. I guess we haven't looked back. So how long has that been? How long have you been in Missouri five years five years so prior to that, you were working in various branches of government and you're doing it was many. as an attorney as a lot. What was it doing what we doing government? So I worked before law, SCHOOL In the private sector actually in the healthcare it sector but then during law school and after I actually thought. I thought government was what I wanted to go into. That's actually part of the reason I studied Arabic in my Undergrad as well. It's thought government was around I wanted to go but as I got more experience in government i. realized. I didn't think that was going to be for me. and. Why was that? Would you see there that just turned you off to it I think. I worked with a lot of great people and saw a lot of really interesting things but. The the kind of lockstep. Advancement structure of most of the government. Offices wasn't very appealing to me I I saw people that had been there for thirty years and it seemed like if you wanted to get anywhere, you had to be there for thirty years and there's no getting anywhere without putting in your thirty years. there. There's also the factory you know have a pretty large family. We're expecting our child next month and I knew if I was going to support a family of that size. It's Government salary. Yea. I I know I understand the attraction in the allure. I thought about going into government to at one time when I was laid off from American you know. In the lure was kind of a the security, the job security, everything else and. I got to say a lot of consulting work with the government I've been out of the marine, corps and doing this. And it's such a challenge because what I found is that there's There's just this kind of embracing of mediocrity and it's nothing against the people within it. It's just it's it's a culture of mediocrity. I think and I don't know what your thoughts are on that. Again, I don't into government bashing session but well, exactly I that's I. think that's probably what I was trying to say with trying to dance around and be a little diplomatic but I I totally agree I and I think you're right I don't think it's any individual person just as. Houses that it's the it's the whole system is just too big. It's too bureaucratic right and an end. To. It's that too big to fail mentality. They all know that that they're going to have a job they don't have the pressure of trying to turn a profit to kind of motivate them but. I don't know if they're they're tons of fantastic. Working in government and I I admire the work that they do. But with a lot of great intentions, you're right in the. Same reasons that just wasn't for me I needed to be around a little more Spontaneity. In the the fact that if Wanted Faster Pass towards performance in the object objectives that just seemed like it was applaud you know what I mean like a slow applaud. Yeah. Yup totally get it. Very. Cool. So I'm curious to before we start talking about your roles a president here. What live in Jordan for four months? What was what year was that and what was that like? In two, thousand, nine It was awesome. Just incredible experience. You know as part of my. Undergraduate studies studying the Middle East Arabic So I got to go there and really just immersed myself in Jordanian culture. In my Arabic study I had just gotten married the year before. So my wife and I join me and she actually celebrate our first anniversary in Jordan. Wow and just an amazing cultural experience you know when you visit somewhere as a tourist. You see some cool things but you don't really get a good feel for what people really like where the country's really liked but when you live there for a while. We were able to go to church there and and just make friends interact with people in their everyday lives. It was just awesome to. Be Part of a culture this. So completely different from ours you're live two years in Sweden, but Sweden in so many ways this is just a lot like America so it wasn't kind of a full foreign experience, but Jordan was definitely full foreign experience and There were definitely parts of it that weren't as fun. You know there's water rationing. There s he had you know. Limit, your showers and and and just be really careful with your water and we had bedbugs. there. Definitely. Reasons. That we were happy to go home but man, I wouldn't trade the experience for anything such memories of time that
Homophonix Artist Interviews: Rainbow Riots
"We begin in Stockholm. It is true that Sweden produces an astonishing amount of legendary music small country. Third and world music exports after the US and the UK. No surprise that within the queer communities are Sweden there exists a bevy of talent. Rainbow Reports is a nonprofit organization using arts and coach as tools to advocate for human rights, LGBT Iq, plus people globally. Now. More than ever. Our focuses humane humans should be equality and acceptance for all. It is clear that social justice is not yet where it should be, which is why arts and coach organizations like Rainbow, riots exist if you're lucky enough to live in a country where there oiled ubt brides, a lot of times people get complacent and they think, oh, this is the norm. This is the standard while it ain't Jinnai they're like seventy plus countries in the world grades illegal with same sex relations and where people get killed where where. A death penalty sometimes. Free. Sometimes I think we have freedom, but the struggle still continues. The filed the torture still continues. The fight for freedom still continues. Let's put our hands together for freedom for freedom. Through Rainbow Riots Hitter Lemberg brings to light the ongoing injustices faced by LGBT plus family worldwide. With a background in music production visuals, events publication in community projects combined with an amazingly generous creative spirit. Is Well to use music and media to inform and educate. Rainbow riots invited artists from several countries to take part in a concert as part of the Stockholm pride two, thousand and seventeen. They also made their presence known within the pride parade from the back of a truck proudly blasting out there incredible musical achievements. I asked Peta which countries were represented. On the rainbow riots flow we had a representatives from Sweden what and we had Uganda Kenya. We had Malawi and we had Jamaica. One of the standout tracks from that for me was a song called freedom. See the crowd. Jumping into. Heard? Freedom. To it in such a way can you tell me up freedom came about when I started making freedom which I co? Bro With? Lesbian rapid called you'll be she's A. Legendary rap group in this in the states called. And when we wrote it, it was kind of like part of my old project housing Wallenberg and kind of thought. It was going to be part of that. But then as I started gravitating towards doing something with Queer activism around the world I, started turning my movement Rainbow Rides into a creative project and I thought well, freedom should be part of that. Really. So that's when I went down to Uganda and started working in Uganda 'cause I thought if I'm going to make this album with queer voices from the world's most dangerous places I've gotta go to the belly of the beast which is Uganda. So I thought okay. Well, I've got to go there ain't going to be nice in preschool ad. And before I went like my passport was running out, so yeah, they add to reissue a possible at the Swedish apple before my flight and they gave me a pink. And I thought. How appropriate with driving along well, exactly Scotland I'm going into Uganda practically waving rainbow flags. This is not going to end well because I was not sure what to expect the anything I'd seen and heard was that nobody nobody in Uganda who was queer was safe and everybody was you know hiding whenever you saw an interview with somebody they will always hiding behind a blood pixellated sort of thing and and not just come to know people going to want to be part of this project. Is it going to be really difficult? What am I going to expect? So therefore came prepared with a song that I'd already written which with freedom I thought at the best maybe I can get some people to dogs in the video at least will have something. But when I arrived, I found a thriving queer community with love creativity and that's how the project started. When I arrived in Uganda realized wow I could really make a whole out I could turn this into something much bigger or they're already artists to establish themselves within the community who were making music. N You lots of quiz singers and performers an artist, and I ended up right in the middle of it. So you know I arrived armed with one song and you know it turned into an album of freedom was starting song, and of course, a features my my old correcting partner you'll be of your majesty but also features a Ugandan singer cold deep lack on bicycle and also on the spoken word intro and the thing about freedom was the I always knew that it was really instant kind of be happy pride song and I just wanted to dot context to put it in. Something else. So it's not just the body, song? To. Put it into context of something really really important life and death and I kinda thought what what better way to to get the message out to make people ons. That was to make them listen.
Scientists get closer to blood test for Alzheimer's disease
"To a blood test for Alzheimer's disease. A blood test study was led by Dr Oscar Hanson of Lund University in Sweden. This test actually shows all some seas early on, so also when you only have very minor memory problems, it's very accurate, but the test is on ly for patients showing signs of the disease. I don't think this blood test should be used for screening off healthy individuals. In recent years that we don't have any therapy today that stops slows down by disease in healthy individual. The testing identified people with Alzheimer's versus no dementia or other types of fit with accuracy ranging from 89 to 98%. I'm Shelly Adler,

The danger of herd immunity in solving the COVID-19 problem
"Herd immunity, and it's a concept some leaders and scientists have considered when it comes to responding to this pandemic. NPR's Jeff Broomfield reports on what exactly this idea is and why it presents troubles. The thinking goes like this. Sooner or later, the pandemic cast stand and Debbie shredder gets it like everyone wants a way out psychologically right, because no one's ever coped with something of this scale, and it's not like a crisis like a hurricane or 9 11 where it's like, time bound or geographically bound. This is like everyone everywhere for indefinitely right now appeals to people, right? Treaters of researcher at the University of Edinburgh Medical School in the UK, and it turns out there is a theoretical way it could end. If enough people get sick and recover and they become immune to the corona virus. Then the pandemic fizzles. Those who haven't gotten it yet are safe. The technical name for this is herd immunity in its purest form. It's like Darwinian self selection, right? We let the virus go. Whoever is going to die, I will die. That's life and then whoever makes it we'll have hopefully some form of immunity. Several governments tried with the idea of the beginning of the pandemic, including the U. K, But in the end, most decided it would cost too many lives. There was one exception Sweden. They kept businesses open and let people make their own choices. At one point, Swedish officials said Stockholm would returned immunity by the end of May, but they have not reached it by the end of May. They just lost a lot of lives and also took an economic it shredder says. Herd immunity works as a math problem, but at an individual level Swedes stayed home. People don't want to catch Cove it nobody wants to be part of the herd to stay that way. But could nations eventually reach herd immunity more slowly? Probably not, says Jeffrey Shaymen of Columbia University. So example, I like to think about it. South Korea. They're getting 50 cases a day right now. They will hold on for another 1000 days, which is almost three years that have 50,000 cases, which is 30.1% of their population. Most experts think herd immunity take somewhere between 50 to 80% of the population, even in the U. S. Even it's 60,000 cases a day. It'll take at least into 2021 possibly years more to reach those levels. And there's another looming problem. People may be able to get the Corona virus more than once, shame and has studied other Corona viruses that cause common colds, and he found people could be re infected. Some of them were 48 weeks separated from the previous infection, which is rapid and that might have been a relapse. But others we clearly know are different. They were 8 to 11 months apart. Greta Bauer is an epidemiologist at Western University in Ontario, she says this fall and winter maybe the time we find out about re infections, and if Covitz survivors get even mildly sick, the second time around Corona virus will keep circulating. If that were the situation, then there's no potential to develop a level of herd immunity sufficient to stop the infection. I corresponded with 16 different scientists, and almost all believed that achieving herd immunity as a practical matter was virtually impossible. Without a vaccine with the vaccine. It will be a lot easier to control the virus, but it will likely still exist in pockets around the world. So what's going to happen again? Researcher devilish reader I think it's going to be with us play forever. At this point, I think I mean at a global scale, it's going to be with us, and it's how we decide to live with it. There are ways to live with it. Test the sick, isolate them until they're better and everybody where a mask and keep their distance.
China says it will retaliate after US orders its Houston consulate to close
"With the Chinese. Let's deal with the hacking situation and the story that broke yesterday and even before this, we had heard that the Chinese were actively trying to steal intellectual property on Research for a Corona virus vaccine and it comes down to the Chinese know that this virus originated in Wuhan. The Chinese know that they misled the world. They misled the United States they misled. Originally, the World Health Organisation, which has become complicity with the Chinese. On multiple levels and the Chinese did a disservice to humanity. Let's look at it through the prism and the lenses of us here in the United States. That if they would have let us know in December Or early January what they knew and if the Chinese would have locked down Wuhan sooner, even just a week sooner. They didn't tell their own people between January 14th in the 21st and there was a massive spread and rule on at that point. They don't even tell their own people or they didn't move to lock things down. And again the Chinese Communist government completely to blame here for mishandling and mismanaging and lying to the world. And with that said the Chinese don't want Toby. Shown up that they don't want to be behind the eight ball. They want to also be the ones that say, Hey, we've got the best vaccine against Corona virus. Instead of all of the other pharmaceutical and research and institutions around the world that are working diligently and feverishly. On a vaccine whether it's German scientists whether it's French, whether it's what we're hearing out of Oxford in the UK Fizer here in the United States and, of course, their branches all around the world, Moderna. You know, that's just a fraction of who's working. Johnson and Johnson here in the United States is just a fraction of who's working on this vaccine. And the Chinese were we heard this two months ago. I talked about this on the program months ago that the Chinese were tryingto hack and steal data from all over the world so they could be first. Was saying, Hey, we got the vaccine. And now we have two Chinese hackers that have been formally charged with trying to steal research on the Corona virus vaccine. Trying to steal from private companies trying to steal from our government agencies as well. And this is what came down from the DOJ yesterday. And these two guys apparently work that the Chinese Ministry of State Security and the Gwang Dong State Security Department To lead a campaign, which the DOJ the assistant attorney General, John Demmer said was a sweeping global computer intrusion campaign. That's the nice way to say hacking intellectual property theft just going in and stealing. Chinese are very, very good at this. That's why they've gotten so far militarily. From a industrial standpoint, they stolen countless countless hundreds of billions or trillions. An intellectual property. Lee. Zhou Yu, 34 years old and dung. Jeez, I got zero J A Z a shot. G, uh 31. According to the reports, they targeted intellectual property and confidential business information. Held by Pharmaceutical companies and those that are steaming full speed ahead toward a corona virus treatment. Treatments. So the therapeutics the testing issues, the vaccines they were trying to rip off and bust into everything. And this is what the Chinese have done again. Defense contractors. Why do you think the latest generation of the Chinese fighter jet looks just like the F 35 Because they ripped off was the Lockheed Martin or north of Groman. They They controlled her back in the late to thousands like 8 4009 And they stole a whole lot of defence information on the F 35 ripped it off. So it's defense contractors. They rip off the pharmaceutical companies. A computer high tech medical device companies. The Chinese even have a history of busting into solar energy companies here in the United States video game development They're ripping off information. They're stealing codes. It's nonstop on what the Chinese do their absolute thieves. When it comes to intellectual property. According to the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago. And were ongoing as of the date of the indictment, according to AA de MERS. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets. Establishing themselves as a prolific threat to the U. S and foreign networks. And these charges from the feds. They say that these Chinese hackers tried to access the accounts of other organizations that we're not government organizations. They tried to bust also into dissident organizations or actual dissidents or clergy, human rights activists. Is it trying to get Intel and so they can punish and and go after anything that's a threat to the Chinese Communist. Regime. That's what this comes down to. Yeah, Lee and Dung they were working on high tech companies. That was their focus, but they had a whole team. They work of others, obviously, but Lee and Dung they were, they were focused on busting into high tech companies here in the United States, also in South Korea, and Sweden and Spain, Australia, Belgium, Britain. Germany, Japan, Lithuania Nothing about a stony and Latvia. But Lithuania and these indictments were filed in U. S District Court in Washington. And shows that Beijing is using fight cyber theft. In a worldwide campaign. To quote Robbe replicate and replace non Chinese companies in the global marketplace. And then there's also said that China is providing the safe haven for these criminals in order for the Chinese government to get all this information that these guys were Pretty much on the Chinese kami payroll. China has not taken its place alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals to exchange or in exchange for those criminals being on call toe work for the benefit of the state. Again to feed the Chinese Communist Party's insatiable hunger. For American and other non Chinese companies. And to steal their hard earned intellectual property, including covert 19 research, according to Des Murs, assistant attorney general It's a huge problem it has been, and that's why the Chinese are as far as they are. So on the heels of that now we go to the next chapter. And that's that the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, has been ordered closed and, you know he's got his finger on this pulse and is spot on and is not a great job and doesn't pull punches. Mince words. And that's Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio. He gets and has gotten the Chinese threat for a very long time. And what Marco Rubio said today in Fox Business interview is that the Chinese Consulate in Houston is a front for a massive spy organization. And the State Department has ordered that consulate in Houston. To shut down, he said. This consulate is basically a front. It's kind of the central node of a massive spy operation. Commercial espionage, defense espionage. Also influence agents try to influence Congress, according to Marco Rubio. And by the way, Senator Rubio is the acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And he said that this closure of the Houston Chinese consulate was long overdue. And he said the State Department Was completely right Team make this move, and the State Department says that this is absolutely necessary to protect intellectual property here in the United States and private information. And of course, the Chinese. They're going ballistic. They're saying that they could retaliate. That this is uncalled for. This is a gray GIs. We could retaliate. China China When you get there, try to get you to send another virus our way. Is that how you going to retaliate? And Rubio also predicted that China Would then retaliate by closing one of our diplomatic facilities. In China. And if you wanna get a snapshot of what we have in China, Of course, we have the official U. S embassy in Beijing, but we have five consulates around China. We have a consulate in Shanghai. We have a U. S consulate in Gwang Ju. We have a U. S consulate and Cheng do and Wuhan Great and in Shenyang, So we have apparently five other Consulates. On top of our embassy. So the expectation is the Chinese going to retaliate by shutting down one of our places. Hey, what about this fire? What about the Houston Fire Department being called to this embassy or this consulate? Has to shut down by end of business like 45 o'clock on Friday. So the Chinese have to shut this thing down and get out by the end of this week. By Friday afternoon, And last night, there was a fire at the embassy Smoke and Houston Fire department responded. What do you think happened? Where was the fire? What were they doing? Hold on to that thought, because we'll wrap up this whole story with that next. Here on Schmidt, I
"sweden" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis
"Yeah, I mean. With a death rate an infection rate that so much higher than surrounding countries. It's hard to think about why. The population in general hasn't risen up and said we want more restrictions. We want more control of this virus. Okay, there are a few answers to that. There are few astor's to everything. There is one aspect that has to do with wishful thinking or desires one is we want this to turn out well another one as we wanna be able to live. As, we always have an third one is we want to believe that our country is good and is doing the right thing, so those are the kind of wishful thinking aspects of of this if you WANNA, call it complacency or whatever? There's another aspects and that is that the public health ages in and in particular understanding now the state it'd be just. Had every day during the week had a press conference at two o'clock. Now in the summer, it's already twice a week, but until recently every day during the week they had this everybody was watching it and basically the always said. This is looking good. You know we're going to get into the right direction. We know it's hard on on on on the hospitals, but we're Sweden is going in the right direction with the very calm, and they'd say that even as the numbers were going up, yeah. You know it was always. The numbers are going up, but it's, but it's flattening out. You know it's not going up a steeply anymore. In the beginning, they said Oh. We're GONNA. Reach the peak tomorrow and then. The next Omega. The people come in the two days. There was always a positive message at those press conferences every day, and you know when somebody who you WanNa Trust says those things in such calming way. Be believe it doesn't want to believe it. Did you notice any kind of change in the Swedish perspective on their approach as the death numbers climbed as the infection rates climbed well here. You have to look at different things. The support for the Swedish policy at lessened, it used to be very high. Not As high anymore I would still say it's pretty strong support, but it's. It's definitely much more polarized. It was. Also, the the newspapers, the editorial started getting much more critical, not necessarily the reporters themselves, but the editorials started getting more critical, but what hasn't changed and hasn't changed in the least. Is the policy? Of the Public Health Agency of the government. They're sticking to their guns. In some ways. It seems like Sweden is doing deliberately. What the US has done with like incompetence neglect. Yeah, and I don't know how successful you could call it. When five thousand I mean, you know we had higher death numbers bird million than the US does. The US has more deaths. Per Million Right now in the last couple of weeks, but over all Sweden has hired that numbers per million inhabitants than the US. Right now though corona virus cases are actually on the decline in Sweden. Last week Sweden's Daily Cova count dipped to its lowest point since May. The director of the country's health agency said we are beginning to approach levels that other countries find acceptable. What does it mean to you that Sweden's numbers are going down now? Does that mean that there's been some kind of success? They're not at all going down as Radically as those countries who had lockdowns I mean Sweden's so much higher than the surrounding countries and many other countries, but it is going down. Now that could be different explanations for this. Because the spread is still you know it's still spreading and among the the young it spreading lots. So one of the reasons it's going down is an I'm speculating, but he's reasonable speculations. One of the reasons is that the health care facilities now have much more. Their their routines are much better work out so that it's not thr-. Striking the elderly to the same extent, another reason it's going down because you have to know what happens in swing. Come Midsummer. It's like Sweden sops again. From the twentieth of June until the first of August Sweden is a summer vacation place. This is this is this is the Swedish soul. We love our summers whether the reigning resorts raining up and that means the people are in the country houses. They're not working. They're not taking public transportation to the same extent. There's much more social distancing for natural reasons right now, so that's another aspect. What are people thinking about? School about businesses is just back to normal well, this is this, is it I mean schools were open except for high school in universities. Catch were all going to school, which was scary. Scary, for some people, because they maybe had, parents would risk factors, and it was a really scary situation for a lot of people, but they were forced to go to school the kids. If the parents kept the kids home, they were threatened with social interventions. Now. Will will be open again too so. People won't be going back to school. Does that worry you course now what we are wondering is? Will they finally changed the policy in the fall? Will they say please wear face masks? I'm not only worried but curious about what what what will happen in September. And we don't. Do you think about leaving Sweden because of opus. Nah. No No I. Don't I permanently or just to just for the year? Maybe I don't know and now I, don't because. I feel like it's important what we do over here where we are the voice of opposition. If you WANNA call it that you know the people we call ourselves the twenty two I mean we have. Zoom meetings and All the time where we're doing videos were writing articles, and I feel like I can't leave this I mean we have to. Doing it even if it hasn't helped much until now. We have to keep doing it and of course I would prefer to be able to go to the supermarket and meet. See all my friends and not have to talk to them. Sure But I don't feel like I can't control the situation here I mean. I have to be much more cautious than I would be. In Finland Norway sure which is a shame, but I I can't control. My situation fared well. Lane Einhorn. Thank you so much for joining me. Thank you. Lena Einhorn is an author filmmaker and former medical researcher.

President Trump threatens school funding, demands new CDC guidelines amid reopening battle

But there are many local officials who say it's just not safe enough. President Trump tweeted quote in Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and many other countries. Schools are open with no problems. The de mes think it would be bad for them politically, if U. S schools open before the November election, but is important for the Children and families may cut off funding if not open.

Arizona seeing highest number of new coronavirus cases per capita
"Joining now from where things stand is to reject director for the Arizona Public Health. Association will humble. He's also the former director of the Arizona Department of Health Services and I know that. We've got data reportings very lumpy, and we're coming off a holiday weekend, and so the picture is not as clear on this Tuesday, as it normally would, because of those reporting delays, but this jumped out to me as of today Arizona not the cove infections per capita of any state, but also the most of any state has ever had. We hit five hundred and twenty eight per million, new. York topped out at five nine on April tenth. What what does it look like to you in Arizona, right now. That really says it all, doesn't it? I mean everybody knows what happened in New York and now it's happening in Arizona and who would have thought that it would happen in a state like Arizona but his shows you that the policy decisions that you're elected. Officials make have real life consequences and the decisions, the decisions in May and early June or lack of decisions are really what set in the cascade of events that ended up where we are today with a graph just saw. We're also seeing an inflection point in deaths in Arizona. We saw it also just I just saw about an hour ago. I think Texas reported its highest fatality level. I'm a very long time today. There's been this lag. Obviously between cases and battalions were catching more cases. There's a hope that fatalities won't be as high right now. What are you seeing the fatality data? Where do you think this is going? So. There's a couple of things that may be moderating the death rate here in Arizona. Number one is that the new cases are really exploding in twenty and thirty year old people who are. Less likely to end up in an ICU bed, and less likely to die. It happens, but it's less likely the other thing is that clinicians are getting better at treating people for covid. Nineteen at the beginning was just supportive care now there's a couple of medications that can improve the course of the illness, so as physicians learn a little bit more about how to treat illness I think that may be working in our favor a little bit and finally. I I'm hoping that this also represents an improvement in infection control within assisted living and skilled nursing facilities I. Don't know that for a fact. I do know that they are trying harder than they were and personal. Protective equipment is more available, but really there's no substitute for weekly testing of staff that work in those facilities. I don't think that that's happening. In terms of testing seeing, it's really maddening. We're seeing bottlenecks again, and you're seeing that in that positivity rate going up, and it's upright now. It's almost thirty percent I think in Arizona I mean the the recommendation the are you want the positivity right below three percent, which basically shows that you're testing enough? The MARICOPA county reported Covid, nineteen positivity rate of twenty eight point eight percent. This is the Phoenix Mayor tweeting. We've seen testing sites where people waited for more than eight hours in one hundred and ten degree heat to get tested. This is unacceptable. Arezzo needs more testing and context racing to slow the spread. This seems like a major major and acute failure right now as as the state tries to get a hold of this. positivity rate is off the charts, and as you said, it needs to be ten times lower than it is right now. We're at twenty five percent positive. The next highest state I think is Texas and Florida. They're in the the teens, so we're much higher that we need to be on that regard. The other thing is that our turnaround time on these tests is really pretty bad like we're looking at turnaround times between getting A. A sample collected from a patient and getting those results back from the lab of seven eight nine, even fourteen days, and what that means. Is that your contact tracing capacity? Your contact tracers can't do their job because by the time they get the data. The patient has already either gone back to work infected their roommates or co workers, and and it doesn't matter how good contact tracing capacity is if you're getting the results that late. It's going to be ineffective at Saint. We've gotta just get more tests, but faster testing. You know months ago. There's a lot of debate about the Swedish model Sweden was one of the few countries that had had you know. Had the virus didn't shutdown did close some things here? There? Make some efforts, and there was some question about. Can you avoid the worse consequences both economically and also of sort of social and physical and emotional health of lockdowns, and I your piece today basing no, it's not it's a cautionary tale. It was sort of a failed experiment. It does seem to me. We're headed towards the sun belt. Sweden experiment in the US I mean governor Ducey does seem reluctant to take any more steps and he has. We're just GONNA. Find out how bad it can get back. I Isaac, we adopted the Swedish model right around Memorial Day to be honest with. I've said that publicly that I think what we're really doing is going down the Swedish road and. And what we see is we can learn. The previous segment you talked about learning for mothers. You know I this is an example where we could have learned from others and I hope other people learn from us because this experiment isn't going well.
Learning A Love Of Language With Steve Kaufmann
"Hello, travel nerds, and welcome to the extra pack of peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less I'm your host, Travis Jerry joining me today as someone who's a retired diplomat who has fifty years of travel under his belt, and who speaks twenty languages Steve. Kauffman from link. Dot Com Steve Thanks for joining me and a huge welcome. To be here and we're just talking about this right before you hit record. It's easy to be blown away by this number. Right like twenty languages. People like Whoa that's insane, but that was not always the case for you. Let let's back it up a bit and kind of tell us what your language learning journey has been like. Okay well I grew up Montreal, but in the English speaking part of Montreal because in those days the two communities were kind of separate, which is not the case today, but it was in those days more than fifty years ago. And then I got interested in French. We'd had it in school I couldn't speak, but I got very interested. Interested in the culture in those days was Lat Nouvelle vague in all the movies, and so I ended up getting keen on franchise I hitch. Actually I worked on a boat to get across. Europe I ended up settling into France by studied for three years, and that Kinda got me into a situation where I transferred myself into someone fluent in. In another language, which is a a life changing experience so then when I joined the Canadian diplomatic service and they wanted someone to learn. Chinese I said I'm your man. I was confident that I could learn so then. I was sent to Hong Kong in man. Then and then I ended up going to Japan where I live for nine years. And then once you know you can do something fun to do it. And then I just did it. It with other languages as well and and particularly as as sixty eight. I had nine languages when I retired, and now I've learned another eleven since the age of sixty. Wow, so it was just something for you that you again. You didn't have any special skills as in a kid or a teenager right? Didn't it didn't speak French even at that point and it just you kind of the bug a little bit. What have you felt as far? Far, as you said once, you know, you can do it. You and you like it. You just start doing it. Have you felt that it becomes easier the more that you know? Is there like a bit of a tipping point? Maybe where it becomes harder, it becomes easier always easier and I think I had. It's possible that my situation was favourable. Because I was actually born in Sweden, and at the age of five. My family moved to Canada. I quickly forgot Swedish, but that was there in my brain when I was very young, and of course you, can you hear French around? Montreal and I think that the more flexible. Your brain is different sounds different ways of saying things those are those are. Positive but I was at this polyglot conference. Speakers of many languages probably Glide Conference in Montreal, and I was speaking to a group of six hundred people, and I said how many of you grew up in a lingual family, and hardly anybody put their hand up, so it's not a condition but anything that makes your brain more flexible if you only have one language, your brain is set up to deal with one set of sounds. One set of sort of ways of saying things, and as you find that there are other ways other sounds, your brain becomes more flexible, and so you're resist the new language less and less so I learn languages today at the age seventy four faster than I did when I
The global hotspots where coronavirus is still killing thousands
"As we've observed a bunch of times on this show, which seemed to be a pretty good spot in Australia at the moment when it comes to it, but that's certainly not the case elsewhere in the world. More than eight million people have now been infected by covid nineteen, according to Johns Hopkins University. It took nine days for the number of infections to grow from six million to seven. Seven million and less than eight days to get to the latest millions either pandemics, not slowing down. So what's happening elsewhere in the world nominee? Will it still going I mean? The United States tailed off a little bit, but that's largely because of New York state are lots of states in the United States which are now increasing, and there are some states that look as if they actually might be suffering from a second wave like south. Carolina and the league table of cases. Is America Brazil Russia India UK Spain Italy Peru. which gives you a sense of Latin America particularly, South America is a prominent source of new cases, which confirms what people already had a lot of which is Latin. America is a significant hotspot. As indeed is Russia, and Russia has had to revise its. Deaths reporting because it had all these eight, hundred, thousand, nine, hundred thousand cases and I think it was wondering reporting rows of handful of deaths, which made the WHO query their statistics, and they've rapidly revised that we oversee the far more deaths than they're admitting to. So that's the league table at the moment, and it is spreading, and you could argue that in some parts of the world are beginning to see a second wave. China's obviously worried about this outbreak in the. Food Market in Beijing and trying to control that very very quickly. So, what does this mean for us here in Australia where we're sort of? Increased pressure open borders especially to business people well. It says that they're still a huge amount of virus circulating in the world. It's not going away, it's. And it's spreading to countries that have had small epidemics up until now and growing and second waves look as if they may be happening, so you'd be nuts if you open the border to the United States. Russia India UK still far too much. In a lot of European countries still too much virus circulating, there are some countries in the world where there's not very much, and which you could consider that, but very very careful, and in fact, the Chinese think that the source of the cases that they've got in Beijing where Chinese people returning from overseas, so it's a high risk situation when the so much virus around the. The world, so a lot of countries around the world did lockdown, and we've done that here in Australia New Zealand and stuff like that, but if it's still increasing at such a rapid right in so many countries around the world, what were the point of lockdowns? Well for the countries that lockdown early? They've had success. Tens of thousands of people have died the point is that most countries with a bad pandemic. Countries that didn't lockdown early enough, and it already established itself. That's the problem. The problem is not the lockdown lockdown. Social distancing is actually the only thing that works and they have instituted late, and the viruses got away from them. But. It's not benefited their country. Their economies are shattered. They're not able to come back fully. People are frightened to come out the statistics from the United States show that most people are still quite nervous about coming out, even though the trying to open up the economy, because it's still a lot of virus around, whereas if you look at a Sturdier with lockdown and. and. New Zealand people are not so nervous about coming up because they know there's not much virus around, so allows us to return much more strongly. In terms of our economy, the problem those countries face where the still seeing an epidemic upenn significant pandemic is nothing to show for it. They've got an economy that short they've had a field lockdown was not failed. Failed more people would have died. Had they not locked down and the natural immunity in the population that tiny levels maximum, twenty percent, some countries like Sweden, maybe only nine or ten percent, so all these people died for what when they could have actually shut down earlier, and this is just like nineteen eighteen, the cities that in places that shutdown earlier their economies. Economies bounced back better and more fulsomely and places. That waited around

So we had this sort of remarkable absence of a lockdown in Sweden even so things are certainly different social life has slowed outdoor activity has slowed but I wonder without an official lockdown and the legally enforced lockdown and even without public schools being closed. How is it going in Sweden? How does it compare to? I Dunno Sweden's neighbours. And is that a fair comparison? Sweden the is have lower figures lower for Sweden and Denmark. The number of in nineteen death was fairly equivalent at first but then Sweden saw a surge in April. Sweden's death rate is twenty four hundred thousand people compared with the. Uk's at thirty nine there. Sweden looks poor compared with neighboring Denmark. Over seven and no way at under four. But obviously you know as an element of Cherry picking when you look at other countries if you compare it to Belgium for instance here it's in Sweden. It's two hundred eighty three dead per million in Belgium. It's six hundred. Ninety two is also The Public Health Agency. IS KEEN TO STRESS. That different countries have different ways of of counting and recording. Ed eighths and that different countries are at different stages of the pandemic and so on and testing as well right. Yeah says Sweden has tested about one hundred and twenty thousand people so far and there's been a promises of greatly extending testing for quite some time to haven't really been realized as so there's a lot of discussion about that now in Sweden Howard different groups in Sweden. Doing I mean the United States. We're definitely seeing the elderly are more vulnerable and we're seeing more quote unquote essential workers being affected by this. Because they're out there every day taking buses taking public transit. And on the sort of frontlines of this yeah There's a huge problem in in care homes or nursing homes fatalities in care homes account for a third of Sweden's deaths from the krona virus in the Stockholm region which is the hardest hit area that figure rises to fifty percent and so both the government and the public health agency have been very keen to defend the Swedish strategy. But they've also admitted that much. This has been a major failure we can say is that we have a large amount of the deaths or connected to the elderly homes and we are now investigating very foley what we can do to prevent contagion from entering those places as the infection and death rates climb care. Workers and union representatives have also shed stories in the media and in reports of at poor routines of a lack of protective equipment bad communication for management teams and and kind of working conditions in the elderly caste system. That means Workers have been very vulnerable and have also exposed potentially elderly people to to the virus. There's not been a will to test US systematically at least in places where worked even if there are people with symptoms. They're not being tested. One about the economy has not locking down spared Sweden from the crises. We see mull over the planet I mean of course in a globalised world. The Swedish economy is not doesn't exist isolation of course a lot of industries and sectors are affected not least tourism hospitality and unemployment is is soaring here as well. I know hundred. An eighty three businesses within the hotel and restaurant industry filed for bankruptcy in the first three weeks of April alone so obviously a lot of individuals and a lot of companies in sectors of feeling the impact of of this Pandemic I know. I saw figures the other week that the IMF International Fund predicted that the Swedish economy would shrink by point eight percent so by comparison the two thousand nine financial crisis close to five point two percent full and also if we haven't had a look down and the measures taken here very tame compared to other countries. It still is the case that life has radically changed in terms of how you move about and how you spend your money and and the caution of Asli that that people are taken with their personal finances that at a time of uncertainty so it's not as if Sweden is booming financially at the moment. So what does that mean for this approach that the government took this approach to avoid lockdown? I mean it sounds like it didn't necessarily save the economy and it didn't necessarily stop the spread of this virus am i. I don't correct me if I'm over. Simplifying it but was was it a smart approach you think or is it too early to say. I think it's too early to a label. Any approach of any country as either right or wrong at this point I think we have to wait for some time to to make sort of conclusive judgment on that but I also think considering that this is a global crisis it would be impossible for Sweden to not be impacted. I mean both in terms of a health and And deaths and in terms of the but I think a the argument from the authorities here in defense of of avoiding down it also means that Sweden is not in a situation that other countries find themselves in now in terms of debating how to open up you know the big issue for many other countries right now is the exit strategy and Sweden in in many ways needs an exit strategy as well. Because we're not living as we did and just a few months ago but obviously the transition back to normal see is not as complicated as in other countries. There's always going to be a differences in opinion as to whether the strategies is right or wrong but I also think we're still in the midst of it and perhaps a year from now or even further away. The debate will sound completely different. I mean who knows but I also think it. That's a very legitimate concern. And worry and disappointment I guess for someone who perhaps has an elderly relation in a care home and sees. What's going on there and this? There's lots of frustration among care. Workers and a lot of people are being affected. Obviously by the pandemic people are going to have very different experiences.

Ostra Toernell says he's glad for his part that the economy has stayed open. He says the club staff is kind of like a family. And even though soap bar had to lay off ten people it was still able to keep most of its core staff. Oscar says that with the smaller crowds. The club is not making much money but it is scraping by along with a lot of other businesses in Sweden. We might be be on the right path other note basically Isabel Limbo today. We'll see you know as the weeks. Go by in the meantime. Oscar says he will keep going to work making sure.

"I'm Katie Bulls and I'm joined by phrasing Nelson and James. Besides going into the weekend. We have the opening of the Corona Virus Specific Hospital in London on his done by Prince. Charles might be. And there's remiss a band that the day government figures we'll have the highest death toll and ultimately the peak of the infection could be Easter Sunday. James. What's the meeting government? So the government. Not quite a while expected with the P two. Boris would come in not week beginning on Easter Sunday the week beginning April twelfth. I think the questioning in government. Marilyn's I mean there's a mix depending on what your faces. Which is I mean. There is a feeling that they are successfully expanding plastic. Nhs to deal with this then. There is a big question at how long the current lockdown is sustainable for in terms of both the economy and public consent. Nineties is going to be one of the big issues going forward. I also think if I were the queen is going to address. The Nation at eight PM on Sunday suggests that this week is one. The government expects seems to start getting really bad phrase Boris Johnson has told US repeatedly is going to get worse before it gets better. G think that the public braced fool. What we expect over the next couple of weeks in terms of a sharp increase in fatalities. If you speak to fix the government. There is a sense that if they can keep the death toll late twenty thousand that would be relatively speaking showing that they had. They had the infection under control competitive west case scenario yes. There's still a lot of doubts about the figures I mean. We know in Britain that sixteen hundred a day would also told the now there are five hundred six hundred people dying with Kovic every day. It's not sure these extra deaths that the death tolls appreciably or whether it's the case that those who anyway passing away a greater share of them were getting covert so we didn't know now because the data hasn't come out yet if it's the case that hosts Brazil's our right now seeing lots and lots lots more patients lots of more dead bodies where the decisions are as bad as the figures suggest or whether the numbers were seeing are to a large extent simply a sign of how common covered now is amongst people. This is something that Sweden's been grappling with original. It's my Daily Telegraph column today. They're changing their COUVERT METRIC. So the only count as a covert death. Somebody who the medics believe died as a result of contracting coverage rather than the many people who are heart disease or lung complications who die with the disease now the Swedes. Think this could reduce the. Cova death numbers by anything from two thirds to four fifths. It's not quite clear yet but that will be a very interesting part of the puzzle because right now. Globally we're talking about people. The Couva deaths figures those who have died with the infection. Suva numbers might be deceptive. Doing really give us a scale of the problem. But the public are certainly braced for this public braced for the worst public health crisis in our lifetimes. That's why we're in lockdown. That's why the economy is crashing. A twenty percent is all worth it in relation to the threat of the public health crisis. That's what the government's telling US anyway. Event thing I think people were braced for worse last week it was. The general feeling at the image has was about to hit the storm. Last weekend we find out now that NHL hospitals are still able to cope. Even in London were told. They haven't limits of intensive care units so the government will be expressing perhaps worst week to come now weekly later than many of them had originally expected it. James the polling. Carney suggests that the public overwhelming do support the lockdown. We are currently in the social distancing measures but there is a sense in government. This could change quite quickly for example their particular worries about this. We can fact that's to be good weather so there's a lot of talk about exit strategy. How much time is being spent in government thinking about exit strategy from Loch to add on? What other options are being meted so case? I think you're right the public currently support and I think the fact that Boris Johnson recorded video. Basically say look. It's GonNa be a lovely beautiful we can but please stay inside. You need to stay inside. Took to slow down. The spread of the virus shows concerns and government. I think the public will contain. Just hold the lock down in a circumstance where every day we get this grim daddy death toll and it is higher but not of the day before I think when the public move might begin to change is if when the number of deaths begins to go on a clear downward trajectory now. I probably is not going to happen until towards the end of this month but I think if that happens and the economic damage of this virus in economic and social eight hundred fifty thousand more claims than usual universal credit in the possible. I if that continues free this month then I think you might see public opinion begin to shift. I think they're all feel about how the exit strategy is Brazil's himself says Testing the way out of this and there are two ways it could work one is Porton down. The government very advanced lab the construction zone of the population so they can see how widespread corona virus has been now. If it turns out that form will people have had corona virus van? The government for is sensitive at Oxford University. Model with pretty broadly bright. The nats suggest one possible way out of the current situation. Another option is to try and embrace a South Korean style. Track and trace of two big problems without the first. Is that even if you hit that? Target of one hundred thousand tests a day by the end of the month but would still be sufficient to allow for open of track and trace style policy and secondly track entries. Don's require a level of intrusion into People's privacy. The I think could be quite hard to get the public to accept. And thirdly the fact that seeing a porch has been doing something similar has had to announce a lockdown of most workplaces and schools shows that there are limits to track and trace can achieve. I mean the second argument is essentially that with this increase in. Nhs Capacity Friedan Izaguirre hospitals. And the like and if the death toll starts to fall by the end of the month that you could have are going to begin to grandeur easing off of some of the restrictions. You know. I won't be allowed to get to work aimed at getting kids back into school for a COUPLA weeks before the summer holidays beginning regarded as being quite important. Psychologically and then gradually building up to a return to normality but I think there is no easy answer to the exit strategy question but I think the point. I think the people what people are beginning to realize but this isn't a simple debate between lives in the economy. It's a debate that recognizes that if this country becomes commonly poor which I think there is no doubt it will. If it's locked down to continue all the way frisbee autumn. We would not be able to afford such good. How Service in future and that would lead to more people dying. Prematurely there is there is there is a general reason. Why Richard Societies how higher life expectancies than poorer societies phaser as touchdown on there are many unknown still in corona virus and temps the figures and lots of countries are trying different approaches when it comes to the idea of slowly easing social. Distancing is one of the factors here in the government's decision making going to be what happens in Wuhan for example where we open. You can see what happens when you move from a suppression strategy to one where people start to move around to get an open. The door will this debate which is being held within government. Right now I was speaking to a government minister this morning and who is saying. It's not clear even inside government. What the purpose of the lockdown is is this about buying time for the any chester the NHL can prepare. That's the Prime Minister. Had told us a couple of weeks ago and that that strategy has worked the inches. Now upscaling not just in London Manchester and Cardiff as well. So does that mean the person can go back to this policy? We had before which is a Swedish style strategy of going about normal life to the extent that any chest capacity will allow so. Is this not really about trying to suppress the virus? Is this simply about trying to manage the tool on the jess? If that's the case then lockdown might be able to end a lot faster now one of things. The government isn't telling US rather suspiciously in. My view is not telling us how many of their intensive care units are being used now in Sweden telling this every single day you can go Swedish website at not get live information. Yesterday their state etymologists was saying that only a quarter of intensive care units are being used in Sweden. This is very important information for Swedes because they need to know. Can the Health Service Cope? How are things so this? Government is sharing information every day to justify their soft lock down. The government is enforcing sweet. Sustained side is basically asking them to behave themselves to stay. We've elderly relatives and doing this is trying to earn consent by sharing information. Now we've got no idea really what the situation is any chess? That information will exist. Everyday ministers know what proportion of intensive care units are used. But this isn't shared with the public and I think it really should be because if it is the case the images capacity has increased to where there's a safe buffer where we're not endanger being overwhelmed. Then that's the point when you can start discussions about starting to end the lockdown. Maybe raising children back to school. That's one of the most important things maybe allowing more people to work of course that if the purpose of them just trying to suppress the virus then it doesn't really matter how busy or not the any jess hospitals are. We stay locked up until this thing. Encode away with that. Certainly some of the arguments you see passing about and it's still not clear even to those within government what the end game is what the exit strategy is is the exit strategy. Wait until we get inches capacity in which case great but let's hear how the interest getting on or are we trying to stay indoors until we somehow defeat or limit the virus in which case we can all be in for a far longer haul. I think in the same way that public opinion was crucial in the shift. To the lockdown becoming compulsory view in dining street was that you needed the public consent for that to happen near the public to be that only public opinion is going to be. Frankly I mean. Let's be realistic. Is going to be crucial to when this lockdown is lifted because in reality even with the police been granted these powers if people begin to flout the lockdown the government call realistically enforcing it is very very difficult and so I think where the public opinion is is going to be. Play a very big part in when these restrictions are ease. That's obviously the politician won't submit publicly but I think when people privately it is quite clear. Back when the the public's attitude to this lockdown and the public to as as a said which which one of those two things is the purpose of it is going to be. I think quite crucial in determining when the restrictions begin to be eased and phrase it just finally you've written about the Swedish example in your graph condom today and we also have a piece in this week magazine in terms of the public's Meden Sweden one of the things here is clearly. Boris Johnson was away pressured into putting social distancing measures. When he did a lot of people around think he might have held off for a little bit longer if they hadn't been that public pressure so sometimes this public when they're fairly relaxed about the government's approach. La Onboard Oden says relaxed. I see it's divided. There was an opinion poll. Recently that showed about seventy five percent of God faith in the Swedish Public Health Authority. Which by the way is managing the crisis here. The politicians are taking a back seat and as the epidemologist in the public health officials. Who are running it now. Three quarters approval rate is pretty high but the remaining twenty percent or guessing pretty nervous. There was a letter for example signed by two thousand researchers scientists and luminaries urging the Swedish government to change tack basically the more sort of affluence and globally minded. You are the more nervous..

"In fifteen seventy eight any Spanish ambassador to Sweden Francisco arrived Johan and Francisco negotiated an alliance dance between Spain in Sweden. Since Spain was Catholic in Sweden was Protestant. Johan asked now Catholic. Cecilia for help. Uh It's so crazy. I know it's like three card. Monte of God. She invited Francisco to our Barbara for a meeting where she started her own negotiations negotiations with him interesting. She requested to be made governor of Luxembourg. And I honest to God what like who is generating these ideas. Where are they coming from a machine? They can't come from human mind and in return would let her ships be used by Spain pain in their war with Holland. Okay Francisco agreed. And when he went back to Stockholm Stop Goshi Johan and then when Johan heard the ships are being used by Spain. He put Francisco under house arrest and banned Cecilia from Stockholm. This guy he's like I don't want to do business with you anymore. Johan then ordered. His ships to attack is pirate fleet. Okay okay during the night of June seventeenth fifteen. Seventy nine. CECILLIA grabbed her way through the Stockholm city. Walls to try to meet with Francisco but the guards set off alarms. The gates of Stockholm Castle were closed. It was chased into alleys and caught. She was brought to Johann but he didn't punish her the guard she bribed to get into Stockholm. However we're executed? Now wait a minute. You have premarital marital sex horrible beaten hair ripped out and you end up. Negotiating waiting with ships that really aren't yours as pirate to become the governor of Luxembourg behind Johansson back. Nothing that's right that's correct correct. Copy that then return to Baden with Edward a few months later Johan released Francisco. He stopped in Baden on his way back to Spain. Don't neither much later so you had a girl Davis the human calculator Aleki later. I'm going to need a minute nine. Guess who's a desk be. Immaculate Conception of Jesus Christ put a baby and by the way I don't know if that's what the pitches on immaculate conception it means Jesus fucking no he's your Mary. Mary Mary Mary Mary Mary. He's been inside. Okay okay. Let's not well. We're cutting off his balls that that part of the Bible is Weird fifteen year old Edward. He's now fifteen. Wanted to avoid a scandal that could hurt his chances to be Margaret overrode. Max So he knew half sister in a convent. WanNa walk me through. That look confused myself okay. So he's this is great. It's like your meat finally. I don't remember Knbr this park. You want me to read it to you. Know so So Christmas family is livid about the illegitimate child came just four years after the death of their son. You can't fuck after four years. What the fuck is happening happening Johann would not let you back in a sweep and word stayed in Baden living off money? She got from her are feifdom. I don't know she. She says control of that but she does well. It sounds like she just went down there and I'm doing it now and it was like okay and fifteen thousand five. Johanna went to marry a woman of Minor Swedish nobility but she had never met him already engaged so she refused the proposal. How what I don't mean to flag everything anything but what? What does that mean? He went there and he's like Mary me. Yeah I'm engaged. Well this was foolhardy. I'm Johan Johann then lost his shit and slapped her in the face with his glove he duels slapped her. That actually happened. Wow her her family was forced to retract her refusal. She broke off her engagement and married. Johan wow what a great. What a great marriage? That must've been so much love. Love love to Cecilia heard about this and made her opposition to the wedding known. So Johann now seized auto. Borge fucking dafter. That that is what she said. I don't like the fact that you're force marrying a lady is laws. Make no sense so now. She has no income so she starts borrowing money. Aw Poor Butcher's quickly got deep into debt. She couldn't support her younger sons and sent them to a school in Rome. Okay then and in fifteen eighty eight. Suddenly the market Margrave of Road Mark Road Mak was tossed out by Christopher family and Edward wasn't stalled. Okay so now. She's back in Edward then united road back with the Margrave of Baden and became Baden. Baden I fucking I. I just looked at got it just at the maps of the whole thing is fucked. It made me very upset. Consider like New York New York. It's up into you. Cecilia became one of his top diplomats. In fifty nine hundred. And that's either way I'm a little wary of the higher in fifty nine hundred on Karl died of unknown causes at twenty one in fifteen done money. Fifty ninety-three Edward Married a local non noblewoman and Baden's leaders wanted a strategic marriage. That didn't like he was wasting money on expensive ends of trips also so Protestants in the Baden Dynasty started to gain power in fifteen ninety four. The Protestants installed their own margrave. In Baden Baden Edward was now only in charge of Rodak. Cecilia then went to Rome and appealed to the pope as a fellow Catholic. She's very. She's very Catholic. I mean a meeting with the. Yeah whatever you guys believe the point is I mean what we believe. The point is I need something because she wanted the pope to help a retake bun pope was like. I don't know if you know what my deals with the pope.

"I mean, I think what's also going on is the the Sweden Democrats were really the only party. To be even slightly skeptical to immigration before twenty fifty. And I think the rest of the political establishment is paying the price for really, actually being quite naive had twenty-fifty no, the the prime minister at missed it, Sweden was naive, and so the Sweden Democrats have you know no wave gain credibility by being able to say, look, we told you. So what's let's say, you know, we return to the supposing figures e scientists earlier Sweden, Democrats at twenty percent. The other parties designed to standard have said they're gonna not do any business with them. Keep them out of government at all costs. Is that going to be practical? And if even if it is, are they going to have to just to the kind of politics? The Sweden Democrats represented in other ways. I mean, it's the sixty four million dollar question to put it in some contexts. Last time round in two thousand fourteen the Sweden Democrats about thirty. They essentially very nearly a brought down the government. The government said they were announced new elections. They look like Sweden with ungovernable. They managed cobble together a compromise that compromise is sort of Phoolan apart. I some parties on the right would like to have not cooperation with the Democrats open to being sort of implicitly supported from parliament by Sweden, Democrats, most different in Sweden elsewhere as they have a negative system of negative parliamentarism that just means the government has to avoid having a majority against it. So if you can Sweden Democrats to abstain in return from MRs may maybe a slightly tougher Gration policy. Then that's the way out the door also opens potentially something a bit more ground breaking in. Sweden, which would be some kind of grand coalition. That's the ruling social Democrats would clearly like to see they'd like to pick off a couple at the smallest center right parties and have some kind of left right government and Ben, I mean returning to the broader European context. As we were saying, this is swings a medium size countries, a big European country, but it's being watched very closely, and it is part of a broader trend is that you think any evidence of kind of populist international if you like of these different groups making common cause what there are. Certainly some people who imagine that a populist international as possible, like Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's former adviser who has actually made it a sort of implicit aimed try and galvanize this populist nationalist front ahead of European elections next year. The thing is there are many differences between these populist parties and. Some, some of them have already pledged not to work with others and there are differences of you in differences of policy. So I think it would be difficult to see how they could coalesce in a single group. I think where they can coalesce though is in disrupting the way the EU works. I think that's the biggest threat to to you're probably right now part from Brexit that you can have people like Victoria ban of Hungary who doesn't want take in any more refugees, for example, from the rest of Europe, and you have Matteo Salvini who desperately wants other European countries to take in more refugees. They should be ultra with each other. And yet somehow they're making kind of common Coors to challenge. Central centralized could have rule if you like by from from the EU and that is going to cause the problems because particularly on on issues like migration, they need unanimity essentially to to move forward. Yeah, yes. Essentially they do and also what you're what you have is just a sort of growing mass of disruptive forces in the EU which is going to make a governing the much much harder. Do you have a sense of what ceiling for these popular Sauber's as Richard was suggesting these, the Swedes kind of later than others. We've seen the Danish People's Party the true Finns in Scandinavia there they've almost become part of the political scenery. Do you think that the same thing could happen with the Sweden Democrats? It's just that you will have now have a kind of nationalist party, but they don't tend to go above twenty percent. I think there is a natural limit in modern democratic still quite liberal Europe to the level of support for these parties, which is why you had many people lost year in France who said the threat from Marinela pens, National Front was overblown that as sort of natural limit to her support. The presidential?.
