Wuhan marks its one year anniversary since the outbreak

"A year since the Chinese city off Wuhan first went into lockdown as a result off the coronavirus, marking a trend which would spread to many countries around the world. At the time, the respiratory disease now known as covert 19, had killed only 17 people. According to official Chinese statistics, there were more than 500 confirmed cases of that point. Wu Han's mayor, Eugene Wang told state controlled television that officials may have acted too slowly. The church in pushing. This is a profound lesson at the focus of the epidemic will hand should carry out a strict measures to prevent and control it without missing any detail or link. This shows that we didn't get to know enough about the virus at the beginning. About his heart, and it's spreading some 11. Million people were put under tight quarantine and face masks and social distancing became mandatory at the time. The wider world was shocked by the harsh restrictions and rigid enforcement. Among locals, there was a sense of panic. Since the shutdown happened this morning. I think this has been a bit more panic, you know, especially when you think about food and the tractor. These Chinese New year people are now going to be able to go see family, etcetera, and that you know, in Chinese culture. That's a massive thing. You know, seeing their family at this time of year. So today when the shutdown happened on its side at 10 o'clock this morning, a bit more panicked, kicked him. But at that stage, the World Health Organization hadn't decided yet whether to declare a global emergency because they didn't have enough information about the virus as Dr Ted Ross Adhanom, Gabrielle source, the W. H O director explained. The decision about whether or not to declare a public health emergency of international concern. Is one I take extremely seriously. And one time only prepared to make with appropriate consideration off all the evidence when it was only on the 12th of March After 1000 deaths and 20,000 cases off the disease were registered in Italy, that the W H O did then declare it Pandemic. We're a year on the world still grappling with coronavirus global cases now stand at 98,157,700. The number of deaths 2,106,690

But compared that with Oniy 25 doses in one of the world's poorest states, he argued it could not be right that younger, healthy people in richer countries would be vaccinated before health care workers and the elderly in the developing world.

"The children of Yemen are suffering acute malnutrition president at rights as the world's worst humanitarian crisis grinds on UN agencies have warned in an alert based on new food security analysis in some areas more than one in four children is acutely malnourished. said the UN Children's fund UNICEF along with the World Food Programme, WFP and the Office for the Coordination of humanitarian, affairs or.

Here's UNICEF spokesperson Eczema. Kado. The most significant increase is among young children who suffer from inferior acute malnutrition. This is a condition that leaves children around ten times more likely to die. Z's as such as cholera, diarrhoea, malaria, or acute respiratory infections, all of which are common in Yemen.

WHO: Letting virus spread to reach herd immunity is "unethical"

"As the covid nineteen pandemic has been sucked ever further. into. The deeply tedious culture wars polarizing many Western democracies they gathering climate has been made on behalf of so called herd immunity. This is the fairy which holds that if nature is permitted to take its course, within reason, sufficient antibodies will be distributed among the populace to reduce the viruses spread to a manageable kroll. The World Health Organization has now sat emphatically upon this view who chief Ted, Ross Cabrera's calling herd immunity scientifically, and ethically problematic one joined with more by Dr. Chris Smith. Our Health and science correspondent also virologist Cambridge University. Chris, he calls it scientifically and ethically problematic I. Think the ethical problem is pretty easy to spot, which is that you know a great many people would need to die. What's the actual scientific problem here if you would just taking a brutally utilitarian approach? Well I think really it's a lack of knowledge the moment we think that about ten percent of the world's population. So perhaps even as many as a billion people rounds bit more than ten percent have had the infection, but we don't know, and the reason we don't know is because in order to work out with people have had it or not we have to do antibody tests and antibodies. And you can think of this as the analogy is a bit like footprints left in the snow when you've had an infection, a person who has had it and cleared it no longer has any virus detect, but the footprints of the vars having been there all the antibodies left in your immune response. If you take those antibodies, that's a sure fire marker, you must have encountered whatever the infection is that you're interested in the problem is that it's not clear to us that when we test people for antibodies, all we rarely detecting all the people that have really been infected or have. We missed some have we missed. A few are more people responding in ways where they might antibodies the we're looking for. We just don't know at the moment. So scientifically, we don't really know what we're tackling here. We don't know what the long term consequences of coronavirus infection are. They may be trivial. They may not at least for proportion of people there is this phenomenon dubbed. Long Cove where people have post infection, inflammatory syndromes and symptoms that can go on for months. Now, we don't know what fraction of the population get that or whether certain people are more susceptible to that younger people older people we don't know. So scientifically, medically, there are issues here. If we understood the thing completely you'd say, well, we know exactly what we're getting into. Sign. On the dotted line or not whereas with this, it's a black box. We don't know what's inside on the subject of understanding things completely where are you on the UK's most recent? Of restrictions lay his TIA's and levels. The U. K. seeking to make things clearer because they've been criticisms levelled at the government for having rules that people not even prime minister. An Very Scottish MP's can remember, and as a result, this is leading to confusion transgressions and that's translating into more spread of the virus. So in order to gain a tighter grip on the virus, the outbreaks in various parts of the country, this tiered system has been introduced to on tier two tier three also dubbed medium high, very high risk and the idea is that everybody across. The country has a baseline of medium risk and so anybody who's not in special restrictions at the moment is medium but in other parts of the country where there are special measures needed, you have this way of escalating up to high risk and the threshold is said to be one hundred per hundred thousand people in the population who are affected in order to trigger that escalation and I think part of this is not just that the people everywhere know where they stand they know how prepare for if they're area becomes. A higher risk area local planners can put in place policies but also means that more control can be potentially devolved to local authorities and local actors because there, there's a lot of knowledge on the ground are very skilled people in public health and so on who could work more strategically locally and I think some of these measures do open the door to more of that kind of thing. But again, it's it's produced the usual anticipated reaction of people. As I'm away confused today blame them people are confused there's lots of. Uncertainty and no one likes this sort of change when you've just got used to work in one way and then morals come in and people are obviously trying to to make sense of how exactly this is or isn't going to work the thing that would of course stops or savers from having to try and understand what the government is telling. US would be a vaccine in has been bad news I guess on that front, which is Johnson and Johnson suspending trials of their vaccine. Do we know why that happened? Nobody's worth bearing in mind that this happens all the time. When we're developing drugs, foams, companies go into the drug development vaccine manufacturing process expecting to fail ninety percent of the time not because they're not good at what they do. It's because they're very good at what they do that they succeed ten percent of the time, but it's a very tough. Challenge with very rigorous standards and west safety is an absolute priorities of red line that you can't cross safety and ethics. So as soon as you have a trial running if there's anything untoward, the the safe thing to do that point is you hope the trial you investigate and you appoint somebody independent of the trial who is an independent observer who will Come, in they would appraise the situation and then they'll cite note we can. We can say this is not because of the drug this is because of natural occurrences something you can resume your trial but on safety grounds, you always hope thing investigate and then make a decision and this happens a lot to happen to Astra Zeneca a couple of months ago. A month or so ago with with their co vaccine and investigators came end, they found that there were cases reported. There was a new case of a of a condition transverse lightest, which is an inflammatory condition of the central nervous system. They were able to say, well, because this happened sporadically in the population, there's no reason to suspect that this was caused. By the vaccine in this case. So we'll resume the trial. It may be that this the same will happen for. Johnson. And Johnson's vaccine trial. So is there any consensus really among you and your fellow boffins about likely timeframe for vaccine will I've asked a couple of people this one person who is working on behalf of one of the regulators to keep. Tabs on one of the vaccine projects. Another person who's actually in the finance sector has been having conversations with the pharmaceutical companies at the front runner in this and both interestingly guy very similar time windows suggesting that about of next year was the most likely time by which we would have data assuming that the data that is provided are provided shows. The vaccines work I mean. Let's assume that because that's a big. If an it's necessary if assuming everything works, then you've got to go through various checks and balances and take a lot of boxes from a safety point of view which takes time and so that's why they're saying probably midway through next year, and then there's the whole issue of WHO's going. To get vaccinated because in a report in the Financial Times last week Kate. Bingham who's the vaccine taskforce lead said an acknowledged that about thirty million people are front runners for receiving vaccines. But where does that leave the other thirty five, million not? No, no information has been provided. Yes. On on what the government strategy is going to be.

"Prevention and treatment services for noncommunicable diseases or NCD's have been severely disrupted since the covid nineteen pandemic began according to a survey from the world, Health Organization released on Monday, the survey completed by one hundred and fifty five countries during three week period in May confirmed the global impact stemming from the pandemic revealing that low income countries most affected the situation is of significant concern, because people living within CDs are at high risk of severe. Kobe nineteen related illnesses and death. Results of this survey confirm what we've been hearing from.

"Credit card companies Ted Ross men their credit cards dot com says it looks like some of us are starting to get that notice about the credit card line unfortunately we are we're seeing a lot of banks proactively cutting credit lines and in some cases even canceling cards entirely without warning and it really all comes down to risk they're obviously very worried about the state of the economy and the job market and perhaps not being paid back and what I've been hearing a lot about is people getting letters and emails that cards have been cancelled credit limits have been cut it's most common in times of an activity so that's one thing that you could do is if you have a card you haven't used in awhile and you want to keep it use it for a small purchase and pay it off right away and just demonstrate that you are still interested there is nothing worse than getting that email or that letter in the mail that says attention were cutting your credit line and this is not just for people who have lower credit scores can it can it really happen to some of the the higher scores as well it can I actually dusted off a fed study from twelve years ago from the financial crisis which I think is actually really good blueprint for what we're going through now and this fed senior loan officer survey from two thousand eight pointed out that back then twenty percent of prime customers people with really good credit scores had credit limits cut or cards cancelled without warning and it was more common among subprime customers sixty percent of them experienced this but the point is that yeah it can even happen at higher credit scores higher income levels in activity is a big one and that's probably the easiest to fix we do also see this happen if you're showing signs of distress and that's what's harder so if you're running up against the credit limit or if you're paying lady or if your credit score has dropped a lot these are other times that you might experience this my best advice there is speak up at the first sign of trouble let the card company no they're often willing to work with you but they need to know about it proactively and have the zero percent balance transfer offers dried up or are there any still out there they've dried out mostly in terms of new applications card companies are worried enough about their current customer base very few new card applications are getting approved these days a good back door though into a zero percent balance transfer offer might be to ask your existing card issuer I actually got an email from one of mine the other day that they were reminding customers that we already qualify for a zero percent balance transfer for fifteen months so I'm seeing some of that that's another good thing to ask your card company about or do a little research online you might already qualify and by the way everything's negotiable so you could call up a company and say Hey I've been a good long standing customer I saw this offer for some other people can you match it it doesn't hurt to ask stead Ross men from credit cards dot com it is two thirteen here K. are all the Americans are tossing out a lot of perfectly good food in that way says hitting people in their wallets the research from Johns Hopkins finds the average person eats less than sixty percent of the food that they put on the plates the rest gets thrown in the trash comes out to about a pound of food per person per day average cost of that waste my three dollars sixty cents every single day you got it up over the course of the year people waste about thirteen hundred dollars in food that they're just thrown away and by the way it's about three times as much as people wasted just twelve years ago we have red lights and a lot of them on I. thirty in fort worth traffic and weather together on the aids coming up this moment of gratitude is brought to you by rocket mortgage in the rock family of companies we really want to thank my wife's cousin Marie who works so hard as a nurse saving others those who leave their homes to keep us safe in ours thank you yeah you guys are awesome we're sending all our love gratitude.

Interview With Rabbi Daniel Lapin About The Coronavirus Situation

"All right let me go to rabbi Daniel Lapin because I I have a religious question for the rabbi and it revolves around jubilee and I was thinking how do we get out of this mess without just scrapping the entire worlds to adapt to that no one could ever pay is we're already there rabbi welcome to the program our area hi Glen good to be with you again and before we've even going a little further let me just to congratulate you and thank you for being the only one to deeply and honestly probe Ted Ross Adams links with the Chinese to address Saddam of course being the first ever non doctor head of the World Health Organization yeah and and covered some of the things you have yeah we we we just it's a main story now on the blaze dot com or you can you can watch this from the blaze yesterday I did a bit of a monologue on it this guy is was you know part of the politburo he is deeply in bed with China part of the the the the the political party the communist political party that he was a part of it will it was deemed a terrorist organization and he's the head of the WHL I mean it's insane insane it really is and and is distortion of the early weeks of the corona virus just prove whose pocket he's in bed it is happening because the Chinese have successfully colonized Africa to a fall great and also to the phone and to to a far more extractive way than the British and the Germans of the Belgians ever did in the nineteenth century yeah exactly right exactly right so rabbi Lapin I have a question on jubilee because we are racking up the debt the world is the rich you're going to get richer on this the banks are going to get their money everybody's making money except the actual people and it and there's no way to pay any of this back it's making all of the people into slaves all around the world and I remembered there was some sort of a system in in Jewish law that like loans had to be repaid by seven years or something like that and then every twenty five years or fifty years there was something called the jubilee world debt was wiped out and might even close on that yes no you you're definitely close and you and I spoke about this years and years ago and and you're exactly right there is it is a fifty program bad it's not quite the socialistic dream that some of our left leaning friends might my dream off because they will ways to make certain that business loans were exempt from this pay back and the reason was because business would have just slowed to a standstill for the last few years of the jubilee cycle because who's going to extend credit to and will close wiped out so A. as a sort of band aid to to irresponsible behavior in the proceeding is didn't didn't quite work that way and and also it it it didn't extend to the return of mortgaged land that is being developed how many undeveloped and so there again as it goes back really to to the big idea which which really were exposed to the very first time in the fourth chapter of genesis where god punished Cain for murder and and because the punishment is supposed to fit the crime in in guard system of justice and unity spectacle what was the punishment to train and the punishment was interestingly enough to fold most people only remember part of it people familiar and remember the best way god says well you have to be a wonder you never gonna be able to stay in the one place in any waiting periods of time but the second part of it was that you'll never be able to grow anything because whatever you trying point will not yield its strength to you so now it gets kind of interesting because what's Kane is being told is Hey you there are only two uses of lands the good lord made a certain amount of land and this two uses human beings can put it to agriculture and development we can grow things will build things mining falls on the ground so those are really the only things you can do now if the land is not going to yield to you then you compliment anything and if the land is is he is not going to be available to because you have to keep moving well you can't really build a skyscraper if you Constantinian one place long enough so somehow or another god is saying to cane use sort of that the secret to wealth acquisition was getting rid of the competition in a useful to begin to get rid of able and now you're gonna be able to have everything and guess what your land is worthless without other people it doesn't mean anything land the land in unpopulated areas of Somalia and Ethiopia for that matter is cheap really really cheap but there's a good reason it's cheap the location he wants to be there Landon very populated Hong Kong Switzerland is very expensive that's where people want to be and so one has to be very cautious when tampering with this divine system of human economic interaction and obliteration of debt is is a huge huge problem because of the blow that it strikes to the system of confidence on which all economic and and financial interaction depends so I you know wouldn't when you say it it can never be repaid well unfortunately there are many people in government or think it can because and that this is a professor at the state university of New York who was not adviser to the to the Sanders campaign who said this there's nothing the government can do it just prints more money no problem yeah you know right right literal failure to understand that that's just another way of stealing our money ever the citizens money and so this is this is unquestionably a huge problem but you know look England came out of World War two huge debts Germany came out of World War one and two with huge debts eventually impact the lost installment of one of these that's was paid I think as recently as the nineties so you does he eat it if we don't get paid that can get paid it'll just take a long time and and if it's not done very wisely and you can precipitate another crisis Texas is that system that is the situation at the vin diesel is that Yukon's destroy the system economic development and the big picture that AB it's been extraordinary to watch is that the default position is people will happily exchange freedom for security and so big organizations get big and I think we're all very concerned about the alacrity with which authorities have seized extraordinary power certainly questionable whether it's constitutional it's certainly not American tradition you know that something which is admittedly there's this there's there's a disease that's a problem it's kind of the salt yeah there was aids was the problem they found solutions he borrows a problem there's a vaccine flu is a big problem there's a vaccine you know I don't know when or what or how but it's going to be solved and the the problem here is is that we are we're not just training our liberty for security but we are we're actually flipping the sense of rights on its head you don't have a right to be safe from all things that that that that that's not even possible right in the Sony's acts and not a right right and so the government is is taking are enshrined rights and taking those away to prop up a right that doesn't and cannot exist and you you're probably on top of this as well but as is obsessive James Dwyer at William and Mary college I mean Michael one of the very old school in America who just recently wrote that the the rights that parents have with respect to the children all grounded by government and that's all it is pretty extraordinary so you know you thought you have a special relationship with your children know that depends on whether the government wishes were you retain that right with respect your children so the the fearsome and terrifying alacrity which with which people seem to accept this extension of in many cases all the tree application of governmental power such as the woman in the pocket and me my goodness the the speed with which you know the cop on the beat used to be your friends he was the one your kids could turn to if they will last and now what are you becoming a terrifying instrument of of applying state power it's easy it's it's frighteningly quick and

"From Ted Ross been industry analyst at Bankrate Ted what are we learning unfortunately most of us have had to cancel some recent plans and most of us have lost money as a result fifty nine million Americans have lost money on planned canceled due to the corona virus another way to look at it only thirty percent got all of their money back that seems really low where is this happening the most about what sectors are parts of the economy the one I'm hearing the most about are two different forms of travel the biggest offender anecdotally seems to be short term rentals things like Airbnb the R. BO both of these companies have improved their cancellation policies in the past few weeks but I still think there's some room for improvement a lot of the say here is coming from the homeowner and a lot of these people have not been as generous as they could or probably should be giving refunds so that's one the other one that I hear a lot about is airlines and well they've been generous about the waivers in cancellation waivers a lot of times they're giving this money back in the form of future credit and a lot of people don't like that because one they don't know when they can use it and to with unemployment spiking they'd really rather have the cash if you pull the plug on the trip you're probably gonna get a future credit but if the airline cancels the flight you should get money back and some people are not and I think with the airlines at least in some cases they'll give you the credit which is fine but you might only have a year to use it then you lose completely it's another you know like an airline shaft and time will tell how long this lasts we can only hope it's shorter than not longer I have my doubts though especially for things like travel and unfortunately you know as a sports fan I think about when are we going to be gathering in large numbers again I hope it's sooner but I I tend to think some of these things are going to take awhile and I think on the subject of travel there's going to be a backlog of travel credits to clear I think one of the next waves here that we're going to start to see more complaints about are things like travel credit cards that they're charging a high annual fee and it's great when you can use it and get those upgrades and getting to the airport lounge but if you can't use it I think there's going to be more complaints and pushes for reforms there speak with Ted Rosman industry analyst at creditcards dot com take a look at the survey much they found sixty two percent of U. S. adults have cancel plans or no longer plan to attend upcoming events because of the pandemic what else stood out here today I was really surprised that more than half of our respondents say that they don't have any of these events planned for the foreseeable future so I guess it's good that people are taking it seriously but it's kind of a depressing thought that right now people don't have sports tickets on the horizon concert ticket side trips.

"Americans say they've canceled plans or no longer plan to attend upcoming events because of the corona virus outbreak that's according to a new survey from Bankrate dot com insight from Ted Ross men industry analyst at Bankrate Ted what are we learning unfortunately most of us have had to cancel some recent plans and most of us have lost money as a result fifty nine million Americans have lost money on planned canceled due to the corona virus another way to look at it only thirty percent got all of their money back that seems really low voice where is this happening the most what what sectors are parts of the economy what I'm hearing the most about are two different forms of travel the biggest offender anecdotally seems to be short term rentals things like Airbnb VR BO both of these companies have improved their cancellation policies in the past few weeks but I still think there's some room for improvement a lot of the say here is coming from the homeowner and a lot of these people have not been as generous as they could or probably should be giving refunds so that's one the other one that I hear a lot about is airlines and well they've been generous about the waivers in cancellation waivers a lot of times they're giving this money back in the form of future credit and a lot of people don't like that because one they don't know when they can use it and to like unemployment spiking they'd really rather have the cash you pull the plug on the trip you're probably gonna get a future credit but if the airline cancels the flight you should get money back and some people are not and I think with the airlines at least in some cases they'll give you the credit which is fine but you might only have a year to use it then you lose completely it's another money you know like an airline shaft and time will tell how long this lasts we can only hope it's shorter not longer I have my doubts though especially for things like travel and unfortunately you know as a sports fan I think about when are we going to be gathering in large numbers again I hope it's sooner but I I tend to think some of these things are going to take awhile and I think on the subject of travel there's going to be a backlog of travel credits to clear I think one of the next waves here that we're going to start to see more complaints about are things like travel credit cards that the charging high annual fee and it's great when you can use it and get those upgrades and getting to the airport lounge but if you can't use it I think there's going to.

"Situation tips from Ted Ross been industry analyst at creditcards dot com Ted what you have yeah I think had been humming along and even though people had dad I mean sixty percent of credit card holders had dead most of them for at least a year it felt manageable and now all of a sudden unfortunately it may not feel that way at first I would say file for unemployment if you're entitled to that get into that system the perks have been opt so that could help tide you over and then a close second would be ask your card issuer and other lenders for breaks they're actually being remarkably generous waiving interest rescheduling due dates waving other fees help is available but you have to ask for it any other be willing to spend some time on the phone right I mean there's a lot of folks probably millions who were dealing with this you're gonna be on holds for put your airpods in your your phone to some kind stick the phone in your pocket and just I don't know like knock things off your to do list while you're waiting on hold good advice the phone rates have been long you could also try to contact these companies online sometimes they are equipped to handle these requests by online chat text message E. mail try one of those avenues rather than the phone if possible all right so is this a case where you are better off or could do yourself more favors by actually behaving nicely here in a kiss up kind of way definitely politeness can go a long way a lot of people don't realize that these hardship programs do exist and they have existed long before coronavirus they're available for people that maybe were a victim of a natural disaster or even just a more ordinary time of job losses or divorce or any sort of shocked your finances a lot of times what happens is that for six to twelve months lenders will be willing to cut your interest rate give you some flexibility protect your credit score that's another perk to speaking up and it's a big reason to do it proactively don't make your lender chase you down you're going to get a much better return if you do a proactive lakes you recommend to a zero percent balance transfer card those are great if you can get them and that's the only asterisk on this one which is that I always recommend me that's a great way to save money on interest and help you get out of debt quickly at a low cost the problem is that banks are nervous these days and they see unemployment spiking and there being a lot more restrictive about who they're approving if you have a credit score in the seven hundreds or even eight hundreds and you have a steady job you probably can still get one of these but otherwise you may have to resort.

"Some of the things that are putting them into death typically it's everyday kind of stuff medical bills car repairs home repairs other day to day expenses all told more than sixty percent of cardholders told us that it was one of those necessary expenses that put them in the credit card debt and that's something that I really empathize with and I think it's important to debunk this stereo type that if you have credit card debt it must be because you overspent on vacation or you bought too many electronics or shoes or something no for most people it's really everyday regular expenses what's surprising to me is that this was conducted amidst the ten year economic expansion and I'm point that a fifty year low and yet so many people were still dealing with that I think it goes to show that you know not everybody has advanced in the same way during the economic recovery and I think that it highlights all the more of it right now as things have shifted on a dime and so many people unfortunately are out of work and dealing with a lot of financial uncertainty given this coronavirus situation I think it just goes to show how important it is that so many banks are offering help you know a lot of banks are letting you skip a payment sometimes even without interest or waving other fees there's been similar moves among landlords and mortgage companies and yeah there's a lot of people who need help I think the government stimulus tax will help with that but it just goes to show that a lot of people unfortunately don't have a lot of wiggle room that's Ted Ross met with credit cards dot.
