Mexico Records The Highest Number Of Health Care Worker Deaths From COVID-19

"Taken a heavy toll on health care workers around the world. Amnesty International reports that Mexico has recorded the highest number of health care worker deaths from the Corona virus. 1400. NPR's carry con reports on how that country came to lead the world in this grim statistic. It's a regular scene in the courtyard of the sea Glowing, you know, medical complex in Mexico City. Dozens of the public hospital staff break into applause to encourage patients struggling with covert and honor. Those who died and there are many. Mexico now ranks fourth in the world and deaths from the virus and of the nearly 700,000 infected. One in seven has worked at a hospital or clinic. Like an angel Gutierrez, a pediatric nurse, the sick element, you know, hospital. He first felt covert symptoms back in July, I I felt really bad. My whole body heard I had a terrible headache. And then I infected my wife and two girls, he says. As his two weeks of paid sick leave was running out. He was tested a second time again Positive, but five days later, he was ordered back on the job. I guess we can still infect others at that point, says Gutierrez. But he says by then his symptoms weren't that bad. Two months later, though, he still have a cough. There are many reasons why so many health professionals in Mexico are getting sick and dying. Lack of quality protective equipment long work weeks that extend exposure to high viral loads, and Mexico quickly hired tens of thousands of professionals to boost staffing. Critics say they haven't gotten proper training. Sofia Ramirez of the nonprofit Mexicans against Corruption says in the early days of the pandemic, healthcare workers were dying at rates five times higher than in the US If we don't take care of her health personnel, I'm not sure how they're going to take care of Oliver. The numbers have improved somewhat in recent weeks. But health care workers still account for nearly 16% of all infections in the country. This month, Dr Theresa at the end, head of the Pan American Health organization made an urgent plea. Countries must ensure that have workers can do their job safely. Carlos Eduardo Perez Palma, a radiologist couldn't agree more He says he spends at least $1500 on protection equipment for himself. Goggles, masks face shield every three months. He works at two of the biggest public hospitals in Mexico City. Paris also leads a group of health care workers fighting for workplace protections. Thor, it is like to call us heroes. But in practice, they sure don't eat of the heroes. Mexican authorities insist their covert protocols are up to international standards, and they dispute that the country ranks first in the world for covert deaths among health care workers. In a briefing, the government's lead epidemiologist Jose Luis Alla, Mia, said it's unfair to make this claim because, he asserted Not all countries report deaths among medical staff and fed among men whose government eat five years. Salome is a data show healthcare workers actually don't get a sick or dyas frequently from Cove. It has the general population. But his data may be misleading because of Mexico's low rate of testing. Mexicans are generally tested on Lee after their hospitalized with serious symptoms, but healthcare workers are supposed to get tested as soon as they feel sick. Mexico's Health Ministry declined to respond to NPR's questions and interview requests. Doctor

As Second Wave of Virus Builds, U.K. Enters New Testing Crisis

"It's imperative that people who fear they have covered symptoms are able to be checked as quickly as possible. In the absence of a vaccine. That's the only effective way to stop infections spreading the prime minister says that schools shouldn't send whole classes or people bubbles home and said child has had a positive test but tower enough come this work. If there's nowhere for them to be tested, it's a shambles. The principal cause of this mess is, of course, organizational and administrative failure by the government on those tasked with delivering the system. But what's not helping either is the lack of clear consistent messaging from ministers. The prospect of a second national lockdown, which must be avoided if possible was being quashed today by ministers but if London and the country as a whole is to overcome the current spike and infections. Prevent further restrictions the government from the prime minister down must end the testing chaos and get a grip of its message to. A reporter Rachel Buffet spent the last couple of days researching this and she's with me now, Rachel. You tried them all every borough in the city. What happened say yesterday we spent about five hours. Trying to book a test everywhere in London. Using, residential postcard for each. And there was none available anywhere. We went. He'd be redirected yesterday to tests outside of London. It was simply not debatable check back later. Still. Not Test available. At again, this morning as well. Yeah. Again, this morning that was. Sort of eighteen available for a walk in center in Kensington. But again, when we tried to book that that was it the slots for booking she came up and this really is just exposing how difficult this crisis is particularly as we have a situation where you know the prime minister has said. CHILDREN SHOULDN'T! Be! Taken off out school Unless their entire bubble is a task but now parents get a test you spoke to apparent in to what kind of trouble will they heaven? Yes. But I quasi parents A couple of in story know they had to go huge round trip is three hours to EPSOM. Paradise boats you had today at just to get a test and they were you know saying alarms midnight waking up refreshing the government page days. Together, test others we spoke to would actually just. Pay For private tests which cost over one hundred pounds just so they can get their kids but to school and they don't have to sell vice sleep two weeks and I think the thing is as well. You know kids especially young kids they get a little time and you know the constantly got colds and coughs and things like that So love tests you know people have that tested negative, but they can't risk it and they have stated time of work on. which has a huge impact on incomes well, for low people this just it's just a huge disparity across the UK as well. So you know we try to protests in Scotland putting in Scottish codes on his ones available immediately go get one in half an hour until of Aberdeen Dundee. That's all fine.

AstraZeneca Phase 3 Trials Paused Due To Safety Concerns

"As to Astra, Zeneca trials for the covid nineteen vaccine hit a snag. The debate resumes as to whether the guard rails and safety protocols worked as intended or it's proof that we're moving too fast in a quest to return to normalcy prior to the pandemic Liz Aibo senior correspondent at Kaiser Health News will update us on the status of the trials and what any setback may mean joining us now, with Liz Zibo senior correspondent. At Kaiser Health News. Thank you for coming on today. Liz thanks for having me. The National Institutes of Health has launched an investigation into the case of a patient who suffered spinal cord damage after AstraZeneca's Kovic Nineteen vaccine trial depending on what I read. It's either proof that the testing process is working as designed or that is evidence of moving too fast and the general public at risk start this out for me if you can. I'd say this is the first example I'd say this is the process working there actually several variety of safety valves that are built into the clinical trial process. So this is one in which a potential side effect was picked up, and we don't know yet if this side effect which is supposed to be a spinal problem if that really was related to the vaccine or not that's why the NIH and others are investigating. More is a comparison going back to h one n one and the vaccine which was developed and implemented very early in the Obama Administration politics aside is there any legitimate comparison as to the vaccine trials of? In one back in two thousand and nine and Kobe nineteen today. The process of getting a vaccine will be longer for Kovin because with H one, N one scientists already had a flu shot and other needed to do was to substitute the h one n one flu sequence for other flu sequences that we've used in the past sue scientists were familiar with the Vaccine Day. Knew how that SORTA vaccine worked the big delay was that the flu vaccine is grown in chicken eggs it's a virus so it's going to chicken eggs and not take some time. So there was a little. Bit of a delay some manufacturing delays with the H One n one vaccine this is very different because this corona viruses very new. We've never licensed vaccine against a corona virus before and the technologies that companies are using to create this vaccine are Ulsan new and most of them have never been used to make a vaccine before big picture. Can you describe the process as far as where we are in the progression as far as phase three trials I keep hearing face three what does that mean for the layperson? Any drug that's going to be used in humans goes through a set period of study and set sequence of trials. So I may be tested enough cell in Petri dish ABC dish they might tested on mice for this kind of vaccine. It's being tested in primates than the first type of trial is a phase one trial, and that's just to try to set the correct dose of the of the vaccine or drug, and to find out any early signs about safety. These are small trials just a few dozen people because these are first in human studies they keep them small to. Make sure that no one's hurt. Then we go to face to trial. Their doctors are looking also for safety and some early signs of efficacy and the big really definitive study is the phase three trial and for a vaccine, these are being given in the United States to thirty thousand people for each trial. So there are two trials that are ongoing right now in the united. States one from Pfizer and one from journal they both are going to enroll at least three thousand people in fact, Pfizer? Just announced a couple days ago they're upping that to forty, four, thousand people and. The reason that those trials need to be so big as they wanNA look for rare side effects, they might be able to find out earlier if the vaccine is effective with fewer people but sometimes, they're rare side effects and this spinal problem that patient apparently had with the Astra Zeneca drug called transverse That's really really rare. So you're not gonNA see really rare but serious side effects until you test them in huge numbers of people. So right now we've got two trials that are in face three, their ongoing the Astra Zeneca trial had just started that was also supposed to. Be a thirty thousand person trial that's been paused because of this potential side effect at the end of it. All best case scenario at least in terms of the Astra Zeneca propose vaccine would it be an annual shot like we get the flu shot or is it something which we may take one time and we're done like maybe the chicken pox virus that's a great question, and in some ways this going to resemble the childhood vaccinations. If anyone out there has kids, we know that they don't just get one shot they'll get a series like measles shots you'll get to what the Yeah, that's right. You'll. You'll get one when the child's around maybe a year or eighteen months, and then they get another one before they enter school. So with this one, people don't yet know how many shots were going to need. Now, the first two vaccines that are closest to making it to approval right now in the US, the Pfizer shot, and also the journey shot those right now to dose vaccines. So you get your first dose which primes your immune system, it sort of. The immune system and prepares it, and then with the Maderna's shot, you get your second shot four weeks later, and that really sets off the immune system to be ready to prepare for this virus and ready to respond with the Pfizer. It's slightly different. It's two shots three weeks apart. But one thing people should know is that let's say you get your first shot for weeks. Later, you get a second shot it takes your immune system, a good two weeks to develop those antibodies. So from the day, you get your first inoculation. Until you may be protected would be six weeks. We don't know yet if we're going to need annual boosters like with the flu shot or even a booster sooner than that, we just don't know but that's a really important question.

NPR's elicit nad Warning has been on a college road trip as the school year begins and is just back from Michigan and she joins us now high, Elissa Hello. Let's first talk about the University of Michigan graduate students there. Another employees are striking over Coben, 19 precautions and the reopening of campus. Tell us what they're protesting, or what the advocating for So the graduate employee organization orgy EO represents about 2000 grad student instructors They've been striking since last week. Their demands include, among other things, the universal right to work remotely. They also want more testing for Corona virus on campus. I talked with a mere Fleischman He's a graduate student who teaches political theory. He was out on the picket lines this morning at 5 A.m., he said. They felt like they tried everything to get the attention of the university and it didn't work. We've held protests we held it died. We've had car caravan. It's been an impact bargaining for months. This has gotten us nowhere. We felt that we had no other option but to engage in strike. And Eliza. What do university Michigan officials have to say about all this? We'll yesterday the U of M President Mark Schlissel, ask the courts to intervene and send the grad students backto work. It's illegal in the state of Michigan for education workers to strike and that ruling is expected by the end of the week. Student workers say. Until then, they'll continue to be on the picket lines. All right, So the University of Michigan has thousands of students living in dorms and taking in person classes. But just north of there is Michigan State in East Lansing, which is all online. Tell us more what's happening there. So at Michigan State University. There's been a big jump in cases since some students returned to the town last month, and that's despite the fact that they're not taking any classes in person this weekend, the university as students living in town to quarantine for two weeks to help curb the spread. I've been keeping in touch with an MSU freshman named Sidney Harakah Veena. She's living in an off campus apartment with her roommates. I called yesterday to ask her about the lock down, and instead she told me that she herself had just tested positive for Corona virus. I was trying to be safe. My roommates were trying to be safe like we kind of avoided like the bigger scenes like I wouldn't want to go somewhere where I could get it. But like even my remains friends, they don't abide by that. And now it really just like, bit them and us in the butt because we hung out with them, and then they had it. So it really was a chain effect. All of her roommates are also positive, though none of them have symptoms, and the three of them are isolating in their apartment. She told me she's already feeling a little restless eye, but they are so how do these two schools fit into what you're hearing across the country in your reporting? Well what colleges air. Finding all over the country is that all it takes is a small all group of students going to parties for the virus to really start making its way through social circles and into the surrounding community. You know, The other thing is the high positive cases in East Lansing show us that colleges don't actually have that much control over this as they might like right because classes are already online there, So I think it's an important lesson for schools that have in person classes because it shows there really aren't that many good options. For shutting the semester down. That's NPR's Listen that morning. She covers higher and thanks for following this, we look forward to hearing more of your report says You continue throughout the fall of school continues. Thanks so much, Sasha.

All of her roommates are also positive, though none of them have symptoms, and the three of them are isolating in their apartment. She told me she's already feeling a little restless, but they are so how do these two schools fit into what you're hearing across the country in your reporting? Well, what colleges they're finding all over the country is that all it takes is a small all group of students going to parties for the virus to really start making its way through social circles and into the surrounding community. You know, The other thing is the high positive cases in East Lansing show us that colleges don't actually have that much control over this as they might like right because classes are already online there, So I think it's an important lesson for schools that have in person classes because it shows there really aren't that many good options. For shutting the semester down.

Philadelphia residents follow mask guidelines, study says

"Finds that Philadelphians they're doing a pretty good job of wearing mass to prevent the spread of coded 19 K Y. W. City Hall Bureau chief Pat Lobe reports. The health commissioner thinks that's a big reason for recent progress on fighting the virus. Health Commissioner Tom Farley says new covert 19 infections fell to an average of 67 a day last week, the lowest number since the second week of the pandemic. Deaths have fallen to about one a day. He gives credit for this progress to people following advice on mask wearing if you're wearing a mask at all, Thank you very much. The new study shows more than three quarters of people on the city's commercial streets are masked. The study is separate from the Health Department's own research, but had similar findings. Doctor Farley says. One problem. The steady identified is that people don't wear masks correctly over the nose and mouth and consistently Don't pull your mask down to talk to the person next to you when you're talking to the person next to you is when you're most putting out the water droplets as the most important time to have a mask on vector for others is the kind of mask is important to Ben Dana's masks with vows and pulled up T shirts.

Why Is My Pieris Plant Turning Yellow?

"Bruce asks about his piracy plants he has to. A says parts of them turn yellow and Brown, and die back every summer they're in partial shade and I give them acid fertilizer occasionally any ideas on what's going wrong Well, not really It. It is a plant that wants established like any other plant. If it's internal growth now, by that meaning some twigs that are on stems clear back near the the original growth then those stems can sometimes get pinched out and die off as well as the material on out toward the plant toward the edge of the plant I have one only that is oh my. My eyeball heights and probably five and a half feet or so across now it's getting thin. Just. I think because of as because it's been there for over forty years but. It does not seem to do what he's describing however, if it's only a small portion of the plant, let's allow that he is doing things right being in partial shade is good. ACID fertilizer definitely is good I. I, would recommend that rather than occasionally he'd he'd be a little bit more active with that not excessive but active to the point that it says on a package of acid fertilizer X. amount per plant a certain size. I would use one half of X in March? Decent jacket type day, and then I would use the other right after boom period in June. Sustain that might help, but it sounds to me like it's just perhaps age or aging where twigs or dying out. Now if a whole Greek portion of the plant dies off, then I'd be looking for critters such as voles chewing on the bark, right at the ground line something of that nature. But if it's if it's only small areas, I would recommend that you you just cut them out and let the plant grow over that spot I'm hoping it's not too big spot or spots, but Sounds. Like he's doing the right things maybe just be a little less than casual with the fertilizer. Do it each year not as I say not excessively but because it being Eric Ages Planet can well, it has to have fertilizer that has acid either the ad they acid otherwise or whatever but any as long as he's doing that. And would kind of upgrade that process and keep the plant moist because dry shade can be nasty and a summer like this where we went for several periods of considerable drought. it depends on what's where so on but it could be just simply lack of water the plant suffering some from that and the portions that are the weakest of portion of the plant simply die off I mean that's just kind of normal of attrition but I tell him it's been the right place, upgrade the fertilizer a little bit and make sure it doesn't get dry and that late June July and August period I don't mean sopping wet now but but every two weeks a good thorough soaking will sustain that plant otherwise he's in good shape in terms of what he's done.

"Real about. It's on Saturday when I log on to do some emails the oldest in cure twenty two hours in Welsh it again, here's Kristen. WHO HEADS UP THE SUPPORT team? By the time? I I logged off on Saturday night. The oldest were twelve hours IRA. That's better. We're so used to base camp. This is so different. We have to think about support differently, not only because we're busiest fuck, but because people don't want. A few! Response I don't think it's not the same. I've been telling everyone when we have to think about the difference between these audiences at this is. We're still friendly like it's like you're helping a friend, but you're in a big fucking. Hurry. This support team wants their new colleagues to feel cared for and empowered even under these intense circumstances. Here's Ashley who helped onboard and train the temps. They were brought on with the possibility of making their positions permanent. I think it can be difficult to relay that. You're all right when they're not used to. Who You? You are in person. You've not really had any video chatting with them, so they can understand your own open. Communication is the main component leads to trust in leads to correct answers. It leads to discussions on whether things are working now. Should it be working that way? So in a folks have agency temper, not they need to be able to truly express that questions constantly. Welcome never too many questions, never never a wrong question especially in this time when we're really very much trying to figure it all out. The Support Team is like the beating empathetic heart of the company. If they're under pressure, everyone feels it and everyone can see it. The of the many bug reports in question that flood the customer Support Queue. This is especially true during the launch of Hey, you see tickets. Come in, like Oh, I can easily fix this in. It's hard to resist the urge to just fix it. Then it might point to a larger issue like you're just not in a good state of mind to start like fixing things then as you're fixing it. Ten more things are gonNA. Come in, and you're GONNA. Learn that somebody else. Else, is trying to fix it, so it's best just to you know back off and yet you watch the things come in. You're really just looking for anything super bad and you're trying to spot patterns. That part is tough as the person who's built a lot of the stuff. It makes you wanted to get in there and fix everything. Jonas is the Design League basecamp I've been doing these like bug. Fix Rounds for the last month or so it's become like a joke. I have these bundles of them in the number keeps going up, so it's like bug fixes. One bug fix to bug fixes forty eight. Especially when you're under a lot of pressure in answering a lot of cases right now that lead you to Kinda hurry a rush through something to try to get a fix out, and then you might miss some stuff in the Nadu's is a new problem, which is almost worse like it's better for the support team to at least know with the bugs. Are there you have to? Slow down a little bit. We don't have time to get into all of the fires that got put out during these two weeks there were mail bomb attacks including one where Jason got ten thousand emails at once, and there was a dos or distributed denial of service attack. The team also realized that the randomly generated burner email addresses were assigning names like cow and rats and customers are unhappy about that, so the format got changed to avoid these problematic combinations. There were also a lot of ideas. Learn around in these two weeks about how to respond to Apple. The team considered organizing email campaigns lobby apple CEO Tim Cook or making a parody version of the hey. APP that would cost eight hundred dollars. In other big thing that coincided with the launch of Hey, was that the lease on bees camps Chicago office was up Chicago. Employees had to return to the office individually to pack up. Their desks have trouble moving out of places. Because I'm kind of a sentimental person, it's not really so much the place or the stuff. It's the the memories like thinking back of what what lived experience. He had in that place working basecamp kind of changed my whole career trajectory and stuff as I remember like the first time interviewing there in parking nearby, and like being scared about an just you know all those feelings. Weird memories kind of pop back up. You know it's a thing like you like live in an apartment. and. You're sad about leaving, and then you start like taking the posters off the walls like empty out one of the rooms. You like this place kind a mess. anyways, forget about it. It kind of had that vibe whereas like. It was no longer the office that it was when we were there this. Chicago office have been base camps physical home for ten years when the company I moved in, it looked quite different from how it looks today. A lot has changed in a decade. More mature now if something had gotten, this popular is hey. Ten years ago, we would fallen over about ten years ago I didn't interview with Jason Calcutta's on his this weekend startup show so I'm really excited to have David. Hopefully I'm going to get this right Haina Meyer. person. David Hanson. It's not that hard to say. You don't have the competitive spirit to go up against Microsoft's. Or their office suite. We're going on a bunch of their shit. Now for share point, you're not going after g mail. That problem doesn't interest me to company. We had in two thousand and ten was a new position to take on email we didn't have the capacity wouldn't have the experience. We didn't have the skills. We didn't have the ambition. After twenty years of building software sixteen years of running base camp, we were ready and finally kind of that shirty in ourselves. Although maybe people will laugh at that Samuel already been completely cocksure. Since the beginning. In some ways, but not in this way, and that's what was different. We really thought like if not us, then, who, if not now then when? Change is hard, and it's particularly difficult to go through a lot of change in a compressed amount of time in public, and during a period of painful and scary transformation for the world at large. The early success of Hey essentially created a second company within basecamp when that will need additional team, members and resources. People here are just starting to process what he means for the future of their day to day work, and for the culture at base camp, and what impact hey might have on the industry. It was a chaotic. Enthralling but horrible two weeks in feels like twenty years in the Sir Twenty first year in business, we may have another massive hit our hands that the last the last one was from two thousand four Basecamp, and now it's hey, and so this is a chance this. We have to go all in and cash in. Many, many many years of calm for a couple of chaotic weeks to get it right and to do everything we had to do to.

"Back, basecamp there was still a lot of activity. Jason wrote an open letter to apple, explaining that his opposition to I wasn't just about the thirty percent cut, although he did find that to be extremely high versus the single digit percentages that credit card processors charge. For Jason The bigger issue is that using apple's AP system would force customers to go through apple instead of base camp if they needed help, we have a platform. We have a lot of people who pay attention what we're doing and I felt like I had some points I. WanNa to make specifically the first one around the thirty percent thing not being the biggest issue here. WHO's right? Is it to tell me tell us to tell our customers how we can interact with them? We spent a lot of time. A lot of effort in hired a lot of people to do things our way. We do things really really well. We're extremely proud of our customer service. A Response Times responsiveness. You can't really service your customers in a way that you want to. If you care about customer service, if you push people through the APP store, you can't handle refunds. You can't handle partial payments. You can't handle hardship exemptions. You can't give people half-off. If someone is a billing issue can't help them you to say. Go go ask Apple, and when you ask Apple. Sometimes it can take three to five days to get a response. We're known as to get back to people within an hour. Jason's letter went up on Friday and the workday ended without any response from apple, however a day earlier on Thursday Phil Schiller Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing and give an interview to tech crunch where he'd suggested a few. Few ways, hey could comply with apple's rules. So when David took to twitter on Friday, he had changed his tone slightly. We drew the line in the sand. We're not gonNA. Pay You thirty percent. You can't just show up and shake down on the day of our launch after you've approved our APP and then ask US thirty percent of revenues, not gonNA. fucking happen I said he changed his tone slightly okay. I didn't say he got a full personality transplant, but There are other things that could happen. Phil Schiller you've gone out in the press and asked for other things and that you would love to see us in the APP store I. Don't know what's in Phil Schiller hearts apart. Maybe he really does love to half pay in the APP store I like that romantic notion. Let's just take that at face value and say look. This is what he wants to and. And we've somehow just misunderstood. These incredibly bake APPs store rules and Phil Schiller is now telling us what we're supposed to do so that's the olive branch extended after seeing. WE'RE GONNA burn the house down in his tech. Crunch Interview Phil Schiller had suggested a number of things. Hey, do things like charging different prices for the APP on the phone and the APP on. On. The web or offering a free version with other features, Here's one of David's responses on twitter for all the snark in exasperation. We're going to take at P.. Schiller his offer quoting Phil. Schiller now there are many things that they could do to make the APP work with the rules that we have. We would love for them to do that now. Quoting David. David again we won't ever do the AP but try some of the other quote. Many things and quote then around ten PM on the East Coast where Zach Dillon live. Everyone on the team got notification so I. Get a notification on my phone that there's a new message from APP. Review interesting thing year with this Zapper News. They don't send anything in the email. You know it's like a bank. Her like adopted. They send you an email saying to go check something else so there's no content. They'RE GONNA win log into there to the APP store connect website. That's where all this kind correspondence takes place to actually see what the messages so a lot of anxiety. I know there's a new message we haven't done anything so who knows what happens next? The note read in its entirety hello. Jason. David's tweets and look forward to working with you on a path forward. This has been approved sincerely APP review. Board, I just a base camp, and I was basically like what is happening, and it was so casual and informal in so shorts that we figure I figured this had to be written by Phil Schiller or someone very high up in Apple. If you're just like a normal employee and you're communicating about a issue, that's gotten publicity. You know you're really light your very careful about it. And this was just always. We saw David's twenty. Okay, cool things a great by. Wonderful because. This was version one point Oh two, which had been approved. This is the version that was being held up for a week. It was the center of all the controversy, but that's not the end of this. Because one point or two is a bug. Fix version like that's not the future of the product. That was just the bug fixes or being held. What are we going to find a medium where they're happy? We're happy. You heard Jason this is not the end. Apple dropped this cryptic note late on a Friday night ww DC, they're big developer event was scheduled to kick off on Monday sign ups for Hey and the first week of launch had wildly exceeded company expectations, and there were still tens of thousands of people on the wait list for an invite code, and with that. Let's head into act to a miracle by Monday. After Approving version, one point zero point, two of the HEY APP and saying they wanted to work on a path forward apple kind of vanished again there was no further communication via the developers portal or a phone, call or twitter. All the team had to go on was Phil Schiller's quotes in that tech crunch piece I was thinking about other ways that people can use email again. Here's base camp founder and CEO Jason Freed and I was walking around and I saw a lost dog. Add on a telephone pole and had someone's email address on it. We have a cat mcph I lost my cat. I don't know if I'd WANNA put my email address up. There would if I could put a temporary address up. There know thinking about like with craigslist. When you put an end up on Craig's list, they hide your email address essentially from the public they give you this like weird. Token is one. This would actually be really interesting thing. We could offer temporary randomized email addresses that expire. It's a trial. There's no path to move on. It's not an actual You'd WANNA. Keep. This is just a temporary email for people who wanna use an email for something that doesn't. Doesn't last very long. Everything lasts forever. There's some situations you wanna sign up for something. You don't want to give you real. An email address that's we came up with this idea and that satisfied apples demands. Because it was a free thing, it was limited. It did not continue into a paid thing. There was no path from this temporary email address to paid, and then we also had been building. Hey, for work. which is what we're using at base camp now. A couple of other companies are using it which is a multi user version of Hey where the company pays, and the employees don't, and that's another condition that. Allows in the APP store without having to pay thirty percent I don't even know which one of them is going to do it either. It's going to be this thing about.

It's therapy two point. Oh support wherever you are whenever it's convenient and start here listeners. Get ten percent off their first month. Better help with the code here star. Now go to better help dot com slash here. Let's think about how this all ships what we were seeing a couple of weeks ago. You remember how happy everyone seemed to be with this big stimulus bill drug on America go to their mailboxes and find four figure checks to help with their bill to all Americans. I say this help is on the way since then. No one's gotten their checks because it takes a while to get that going and more importantly it is increasingly clear that healthcare concerns will continue for months and livelihood could be impacted for years if nothing happened so if that reality has changed how is. Congress adjusting their game plan. Let's check in with ABC senior congressional. Correspondent Mary Bruce. Because Mary and no-one ever thought a single check in the mail was gonna do the trick for everyone but like is twelve hundred dollars. Is that beginning to feel insignificant? Where you are. Yeah I mean look. The more unemployment rises the more critical. It is that Washington does more and both sides of the aisle new even though that two trillion dollar package seems like so much money. The point is that was never going to be enough problems that we don't realize now that we're going to have to grapple worth so I think the odds are high there will be a covert four and while lawmakers were able to quickly put together that last package and passed unanimously. They're already squabbling about the next stimulus. Bill still continue on emergency medication but in the next bill are focused will also be on recovery. It's clear the Democrats being led now by house speaker. Nancy Pelosi want to go big. She is making an urgent call for action and she's eyeing a plan that will be very heavy on infrastructure addressing some of the most critical impacts in vulnerability in America that had been laid further. Bayer by the corona virus but Republican leader. Mitch McConnell is telling Pelosi to stand down. He's warning Democrats at the next. Bill can't include unrelated items that this isn't a chance. He says for Democrats to simply get in all of their political priorities while Democrats really say in order to stimulate the economy to grow not just tried to plug a hole but actually grow the economy. You're going to have to go big. Don't Democrats have kind of a decent cheerleader in a guy named DONALD TRUMP? Like that seems to work well for them. This is where it gets really tricky. The president has voiced some support for doing a big infrastructure project we will spend eight trillion dollars in the Middle East and yet our roads are in bad shape. Our bridges our tunnels bad shape. There's been a lot of talk about doing some kind of infrastructure plan in Washington for years now in fact it's become a bit of a joke because it never seems to happen but focusing on infrastructure is a good way to put a lot of people back to work it seems. Republicans are making it pretty clear They're not GONNA LET NANCY. Pelosi lead this charge. So that's looking months or years in the future like building a new highway right now. Let's talk about the next couple of months because healthcare right. Somebody gets sick right now. They're being told you know. Don't even go to the hospital or doctor's office unless you feel you might die and guess what if you get to that point. I hope you didn't get laid off and lose your health insurance. What are people supposed to do? This is a huge concern right now. Because of course it's unemployment skyrockets so too does the number of Americans without health insurance now. The president had suggested that he might be open to reopening enrollment for Obamacare in the midst of this crisis. But he now says he's not going to do that I can't commit. I have to get approval from it. I have a thing called Congress. And of course remember his administration has been urging the Supreme Court to dismantle the law entirely. So what can you do if all of a sudden you realize you don't have coverage in the midst of this healthcare crisis and you really want it well if you recently lost your insurance because you lost your job despite what the president is doing you do have a sixty day window to enroll through obamacare? No you didn't have health insurance to begin with. There's a chance you might qualify through medicate if that doesn't work if you don't qualify for Medicaid you can check and see if you live in one of twelve states that have decided on their own to reopen. Enrollment is such important information. Right there. Mary if you lost your job if you're listening and you're tuning out. Just go back thirty seconds right now. Listen to what Mary just said. Because there are ways to protect yourself but you gotta do it in sixty days thank you mary. Thanks Brad place like new city for a second.

Social distancing increasing overall crime has now plunged by nearly twenty percent want to bring an ABC senior investigative reporter. Amer Katersky who covers New York law enforcement because Aaron? I feel like everything feels dangerous right now but in a weird way like it's also dangerous for criminals. I guess right. Is that what we're seeing? We are seeing a dramatic reduction in crime for the month of March especially in the last two weeks when the mayor imposed his executive order that kept non essential workers home and everybody out of school crime fell in every borough about twenty percent overall fewer murders fewer shootings fewer robberies but of course keeping everybody indoors poses challenges of its own yet. In what way because we we are seeing certain areas rise as well. What are they will think about Brad? There's a real concern with everybody cooped up at home about other problems that that could pose child abuse for example or alcoholism but particularly the cops here are concerned about domestic violence. Home visits have been curtailed. Obvious reasons but those high priority people we need to in touch with to make sure that Violence isn't happening behind closed doors. There's a real concern that. Although reports of domestic violence were down in March the police commissioner says. He doesn't doubt that it's happening. It just means that women may not be able to get out of the House to actually report to police who are at risk relationships. They are now trapped with your abuser in there. Don't have those pockets of time to call a domestic violence counselor in hotline Soviet. Nypd has put a team of domestic violence officers on patrol to try to take reports and check on those that may be prone to domestic violence based on incidents in the past there was an individual who was standing next to a Asian individual and started spraying for breeze around his feet and around him and read the other point of worry for the NYPD. Hate crimes they don't WanNa see them at any time but especially during the ongoing corona virus response. They're seeing a couple of different incidents that tend to fall under two motivating factors either the victim's race meaning anti Asian reflecting where the virus originated from China. I need to know or the perception that somebody may have the virus. And that's considered an Anti Crime Dylan Marino's family says. Their son was discriminated against by a teacher who claims. He mistook coughing as a sign that the thirteen year old had cove in nineteen and since the outbreak. The Hate Crimes Task Force has been involved in about a dozen cases. All the victims were Asian and targeted. The police said due to discrimination based on the corona virus pandemic. But it's a good thing. Crime is largely down Brad because officers are getting sick at a rather alarming rate as we speak about six thousand New York City. Police officers are out sick. That's seventeen percent of the force so there's still plenty of cops around but it is forcing the department to make some adjustments and if things get really bad the state police could be called in to augment.

"Breaking news for our viewers in the West a stunning report just out. It shows a record shattering. Six point six million Americans filed for unemployment benefits last week. That is double last week's record. Report was among more than six million Americans who've lost their job or had their hours reduced again. This is not cumulative six million just last week. I want to start this morning. I go on. Abc's chief Business Economics reporter. Rebecca Jarvis. Rebecca I mean you had warned people. This could be five million. This could be six. I thought that was the had to be an exaggeration. It even higher. It's a staggering figure. More than six point six million people lost their jobs last week and filed for unemployment insurance. And we know as your guests just said this is probably going to be about March thirtieth time calling today trying to apply for unemployment and they can't even get through because the weights are so gigantic guests. They're overloaded websites. Have so many people on them even just to get signed on took me five hours. He phones have so many people trying to call them that the number of people who are actually getting through and truly filing is smaller than the actual number of people who are getting laid off and losing their jobs. Here's the thing. Forty five at least forty five states at this point are in lockdown and the most optimistic read of this information is that everybody is doing exactly what they've been told to do. Stay home if you're not an essential worker if you're a business shut it down. As revealed in our new poll one in three Americans say they are an immediate family. Member have been laid off or lost their job as a result of the pandemic. The question for anybody who's lost their job after the immediate. When am I going to get my unemployment? Insurance is when am. I going to get my job back or what's going to be waiting for me on the other side of this way to have an com to make money sitting here pretty much devastated and hoping that this situation nightmare. What ENDS THE MONEY? Is there for the unemployment insurance? But the bigger in a longer term sense. Is those jobs for AD. Did this new sense of how bad things could get. Because I know you've been starting from the rooftops like this is going to be bad like pay attention but does this give us a new sense of what the the trough would be the bottoming out. Well I think it's a reality check. These numbers are a reality check and when a few weeks ago before the shutdowns really started in most states when people were out with expectation some analysts were out with expectations of how high unemployment could go and they were unfathomable at that point but the St Louis Federal Reserve for example is forecasting an unemployment rate of more than thirty two percent. That would be three times. The worst unemployment rate of the great recession. That would be forty seven million Americans out of work and then on the other side there are plenty of big companies that will bring employees back but of course there are the small businesses those thirty million small businesses that are having to white knuckle it through these really difficult complicated times watching yer secure quickly is horrifying and it is hard to imagine that everybody. Unfortunately all of those businesses are going to make it to the other side. We really want to try and keep as much as possible right now. We're just locker by the choice. This is many more weeks to go brad. And that's just it's it's really tough to hang on if you're a small business and even for some big businesses in like you've been saying if you did lose your job or you just cannot make next runs payment that Nick's cell phone bill. There are companies that are offering some help some extensions. But it's generally on you to start making those calls to get on those websites of Rebecca Jarvis. Thank you thank you Brad..

"It's Friday April third and a one point. Does it feel like America's getting laid off? You start here. Remember the single worst week in the history of American employment will double it. A lot of people are trying to apply for unemployment and they can't even get through six million jobless claims would have seemed unfathomable a month ago. We'll could these layoffs lead to even more layoffs. Meanwhile twelve hundred dollar check suddenly might not sound so impressive. The money that was never going to be enough. What Congress is planning to do about your bank account and your healthcare is the pandemic wears on and crime is down at least the crime. You can easily see.

"two week" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch

"The opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal this is Potomac Watch. We talked the last podcast about Nancy. Pelosi's push for a fourth Kuroda Virus. Relief Bill from Congress and her idea of getting significant infrastructure spending in it. A president trump has now endorsed that in theory He tweeted with interest rates for the United States. Being at zero. This is the time to do. Our decades long awaited infrastructure bill. It should be very big and bold. All capital letters two trillion dollars and focused solely jobs in rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our country Kim Thi trump is a builder. And so this has always been the kind of thing that appeals to him and he is huddled with. Democrats on infrastructure. In the past. I think last year there was talk. Maybe of doing this. Why has it broken down previously? And will this be any different? Well this has always been the great hope right because this is the one area where everybody agrees in. Theory trump loves to build things. Democrats love to spend money and it's never worked out in the past because their disdain for the president has been so much that they didn't want to give him a victory or work with him on anything so it from my perspective the risk here because by the way I think this is a terrible idea but the risk here is that we now have a new vehicle for working together right which is a response to corona virus And Nancy Pelosi is positioning. This says a stimulus. The president is positioning this as a stimulus. I think one problem though. And you're gonNA see that kind of clash as debate goes forward. Is that Nancy? Pelosi's idea of stimulus is to give a lot of money to schoolteachers okay. Donald Trump made clear in his his tweet that he sent out about this. It needs to be focused on the economy and building. That's broken down in the past two as well because of those very divergent visions of what An infrastructure bill looks like and that could still be a hurdle for anyone to get over. But even if you even if you grant trump his vision of it that this would be bridges and roads and ports and dams dredging and stuff like that It's hard for me to see how this is going to be a stimulus in during the rotavirus bill. I mean how was in this. The problem with the Obama stimulus during the financial crisis. That was shovel ready. That wasn't shovel. Ready Be Bill. How fast could this buddy possibly get anywhere near the actual economy? Yeah well I think I'm as Kim SORTA suggested you know. We learned that. The definition of shovel ready was That it goes to teachers pay and pensions and so forth but again I I think Kashmir on the same wavelength here. I don't think it's just not GONNA HELP. And Corona virus. I think it's it's kind of a dubious idea in itself and especially for our economy. Now I don't see how the this solves the problem that we have. I mean the problem we have is that we've stopped a lot of production because of this so there's a lot of demand there just isn't the supply. I don't really know what this does because once some of those steps are lifted. I think there's going to be a lot of pent up. Demand satisfied There's GonNa be lots of gearing up on the economy and I descend from the idea. Also that bold equals more dollars you know when I worked in a White House. People would say that sometime. We need a big ticket thing. No no small beer and that always got me very nervous because I think very few examples. Where were that's worked just to pick out one example though of why this we'll take so long to get through Let's talk a little about Nipah. The National Environmental Protection Act Which the Journal has has written a good amount over the years So that's the the law that requires environmental studies of new infrastructure. Projects like roads so there is a study of that in the White House that said that The average final environmental impact statement From two thousand thirteen two thousand seventeen took four years and ran six hundred seventy pages and remember. That's an average so there are some really wild outliers like a EXP- expansion of an interstate twelve miles of an interstate. That took like nine thousand pages or something like that So in January the trump administration has Propose a rule that would streamline this a little bit and put presumptive limit on those impact statements of two years and three hundred pages but that rule. I don't think Kim that rule I don't think that's finalized yet. And so that could help but still I mean you're still talking about two years before any of this money would potentially be put into the road. It's not finalized and it's also because it's an executive order or rule I. It's not necessarily a true. Were four and that's one of the other problems with this whole debate. Discussion is that. It's the rest of the Republican Party and the rest of the Democratic Party to not just Nancy Pelosi and trump and there's long been and understanding among Republicans that they have a price if there's going to be public money spent on infrastructure right. Because you're GONNA have some people say oh you know this is just something we can will put a little bit of seed money and will leverage private sector dollars to do these things but the reality is you're going to have to put a bunch of government money into do this and Republicans have always said Democrats if you want us to do that and commit this money to. You're going to have to allow for regulatory reform so that these projects can get done at lake off the ground. Get moving within a matter of months and because the environmental left basically controls the Democratic Party. That's always been a place. Democrats won't go. So you still have that fundamental problem there in the it's maybe. Donald Trump could pushes party to go along with this but there is going to be an enormous amount of Republican skepticism. To move like this if there wasn't some fundamental change in the law and a Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell is already Already playing this down a little bit saying that you know we need to wait and see how the last emeals Bill went Before we do anything else so you know maybe this will end up as another donald trump tweet and nothing more but we'll have to wait and see Let's talk a little bit now about Joe Biden who is still stuck at at home But trying to get his message out so he has launched a new podcast called. Here's the deal with Joe Biden. And he does seem to be shifting his own tone a little bit so he put out a a two or three minute web advertisement where he's lauding healthcare workers as American Heroes Cut with images video of of People in face masks and ambulance crews in that kind of thing. Bill I mean. Do you think this is a better tack for him right now than attacking the president which is what he had been doing previously. I do but I still think it's A. He's in kind of a bad position. Look he's in the position sort of of the person who selected to give the rebuttal address after the state of the Union. I mean you have. The president of the United States speaking from the podium of Congress with all three branches of government represented. There's no more powerful image and then the poor guy that's stuck rebutting just look small by comparison and the former vice president stuck in his basement. You know what this confusing equipment that he can't master. I think it's better tone but it's a difficult time for him because whether or not you like. Donald trump or grew with them with the American people see is the president taking command and so forth. And it's very hard to counter that I do think if he wanted to be noticed it'd be less to To Berate Trump I. I don't think the American people are in a mood for just carping and a people who are trying to do something even if they're wrong about the I do think he could. He could show his leadership within the Democratic Party by calling the Democrat Congress to better behavior and more cooperation and so forth. This is a time to put past the politics and do it. I think that would actually make him. Look more like a commander of chief but he. He's in a very you know he's in his basement. He's been very difficult position to command the same kind of respect and attention that the president hasn't that has nothing to do with either Joe Biden himself or Donald Trump himself but just the nature of the position that he's in and Kim. It's hard to know what else he might be able to do. At this point. I mean if he went out somewhere To Detroit and tried to hold a press conference or something he'd be charged with breaching the rules of social distancing And don't forget he's in the age group that is pretty vulnerable to this virus. So what other options does he have? Well actually it was really interesting. He did do something unique and different on Tuesday. Which is I guess. His attempt to continue to try to campaign out in the states even though he can't officially campaign in the states but what he did on Tuesdays he actually endorsed a pair of Wisconsin. School district referendums which is highly unusual for someone to be at the kind of national level running as a presidential candidate to bother with something like a school referendum. But these referendums are in Milwaukee which is Wisconsin's largest school district and racine both are heavily Democratic districts The these referendums were all about getting more dollars for school. So the Milwaukee one was cost taxpayers about eighty seven million. The racine one has about a billion dollars and his argument. Was You know? We need to invest in our public schools and our students. And so I'm supporting these two referendums so this is his way of trying to get some more headlines within the state and a state that by the way he has not yet been able to campaign in at all yet but a state. That's going to matter in the Democratic primary races as we go forward. These are the kind of I don't know what you would call them. Actions that they're having to resort to to to get their name out even in the state yet to decide on a nominee orthodox campaigning. That's interesting Bill How do you? How do you weigh? What the outcomes of that are. That are in play here politically. I mean what's what's been interesting to me. Is that throughout this crisis? President Trump's handling of it has been rated very very well by voters and his overall approval rating has been going up a little bit But it's also notable semi that if you look at the The real clear politics Averaging of polls On the general election trump versus Biden. I mean I know it's early But by not doing too bad. He's currently up average by about six points I mean what do you make of that? The those those numbers moving in tandem. Yeah I don't really make anything of the latter because until campaign starts I think you see a lot of that I remember the polls about Hillary Clinton Saying kind of the same thing. It's it's very abstract until Donald Trump the campaign really begins Donald Trump and the RNC. Every everyone gets full gear and the Democrats getting full gear to attack on the On the ratings of the press conference I think the president has moved a lot from his initial things. He's I mean it's one thing about the bat. Donald Trump if you put aside the noise that always accompanied him just focus on what he does. He often adjusts now. He'll never admit it right. He'll never admit he changed his mind. Or something I mean. I think it's fair to say that he downplayed the virus in the beginning..

"From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac. Watch Lloyd House words about a very tough two weeks ahead and president trump calls for a two trillion dollar infrastructure package welcome. I'm Kyle Peterson with the Wall Street Journal sitting in today for Paul Zhigo. We are joined by my colleagues. Kim strassel hillock him. Hi Kyle and Bill mcgurn High Bill High Com so during the corona virus. Press briefing on Tuesday night President trump was solemn Might be the word for it All Rita a few fragments of his opening remarks Our country is in the midst of a great national trial. Success in this fight will require the full absolute measure of our collective strength love and devotion every citizen is being called upon to make sacrifices every business is being asked to fulfil patriotic duty And I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead. Kim. That seems like a more subdued to- than we're used to hearing. Yeah and certainly a more subdued tone than last week when the president said. Look. I'd really like this to be over by Easter and we're gonNA open up again. And he was quite honest with what changed that tone which was that. The scientific advisers presented him with a lot of very disturbing evidence about where exactly we are right now. In this curve flattening exercise were doing and the fact that it simply was going to take longer time for The country to get back to a place where it could go back to business and they. They presented those numbers. We got some of those yesterday to which was very heartening to sort of just see that. They know they seem to know what's going on. There is some sort of plan But he was very very open with the fact that we are in the middle of this. And there's going to be a rough couple of weeks coming up the the health experts as you said. They gave an explanation of the modeling that they've been showing to the president. They showed him a bunch of it over the weekend as he was extending those social distancing guidelines to April thirtieth The headline number yesterday being that the virus may kill one hundred thousand to two hundred forty thousand Americans In the health experts best estimate at this point one of the slides that grabbed me bill. was from Deborah burks the Corona Virus Response Coordinator and showed a line graph of the number of cases in all fifty states with New Jersey. Far above the rest as you might expect just hearing the numbers in the news Sorry excuse me New York far above the rest and the New Jersey about halfway down And then everybody else clustered below that and her point was that the need to keep the rest of the states from turning into New York which means staying home. Even if it doesn't look like there's a crisis in your state at any given moment. Yeah I think that I think that's really important because one of the things and looking at the measures on looking at Statistics collected by the international health metrics and Evaluation Center at the University of Washington. And they do a state-by-state breakdown that's very helpful with graphs and one of the things they show it parallels what you said that trump the chart that doctor burks had they show that they're expecting April tenth to be the peak day for deaths in New York. Eight hundred forty five. They're projecting on that day and after that date will go down for New Jersey. It's April ninth so the hope is that The we can. We can flatten the curve. Here to flatten it to flatten it elsewhere. But I think that that's important for another reason. I think one of the frustrations for people is. We're doing all these different things. A lot of states are taking different measures. Different countries are taking different measures. And since we're on the left side of the curve always see is death climbing no matter what steps we take. I think if it does peak if people start seeing it actually coming down that we're on the downslope even though there's still be a lot of people that die and a lot of people that get infected. I think people will be a little more encourage by the steps. We have to take and I again. I go back to You know we might be a little more able to refine the steps. We take who we apply to right. Now we're kind of doing the one-size-fits-all program of everyone sort of stay in place and not work but once once we're on the downslope. I think we might be able to do more with testing and tracing figure out who's immune who might get back to work. What kind of industries might go back and so forth and be a little more refined and I think people would see this is not amendable? You know that that were again making progress and I think people would be more open to some of the measures if they thought it was really having an effect. I I think that's a fair point so even even the the hopeful news out of Tuesday's briefing has doesn't seem to have any specific targets on it so there was a slide That Dr Anthony Fauci discussed Where he's showing the curve in Italy's starting to turn down now that there are three or four weeks into their mitigation measures He says there's little inklings that that The mitigation is working in New York But there's there doesn't seem to be a hard target or of any kind yet at least not that I'm seeing That's being laid out by the White House And there are a lot of people who are who are not in New York interlock farther from the crisis zones One one point to talk about was We mentioned yesterday. The American Enterprise Institute report written by several health experts The one of them being Scott Gottlieb the former FDA the FDA And he suggests some triggers which may be would be helpful one of them being that You know once you have sustained reduction in cases for fourteen days then that might be a trigger to To ease off the distancing Indiana state by state region by region. Basis Maybe Kim do you think it would be useful to have if the White House laid out some kind of targets like that that people could Look toward so yeah. I don't think there's any question that that's going to have to be the way forward. Despite the fact that we have these news cable stations that are constantly showing US cumulative numbers of cases in cumulative numbers of deaths this is always been happening on a state by state basis. And if you look at that report that you mentioned Kyle. They talked about a trigger of having a sustained reduction in cases for fourteen days but also pointing out that a state's going to also need to have the capability in place to test. Everyone was symptoms and to very aggressively jump on anyone who was found to have them and who test positive to go to their context and kind of lock this down so that it doesn't get back out of control again and the report says that it could. Well be the case that even if a state begins to relax social distancing measures if they see a spike again they might have to return to them. So this is going to be kind of state by state on a case by case basis. It's not necessarily going to be one day. You flip a switch and the nation's back on but it would be helpful to get some of this information out of not only think tanks but out of The leaders who are In charge of managing this crisis Just give people a sense of what the What the next step is one sign of the Times. I saw this as a news item. I thought it was interesting. Walmart has announced that. It's going to be doing temperature. Checks on all of its employees when they report to stores or distribution centers I mean that's a huge move. A Walmart I believe is The United States is largest employer about one point. Five million people. Work there I mean bill is that A taste of what the new normal may look like at least until we potentially have a vaccine for this virus. Yeah I think there's it's one of many steps look again I think right now. We've taken a kind of One-size-fits-all approach imposing the lockdown and keeping everyone for work and. Obviously the smarter solution is going to be able to discriminate to identify. Who's a carrier whose immune and so forth? It was interesting. I was talking to a friend from Hong Kong yesterday where I live for ten years. You know very modern place. They had a tough time with SARS. You know years ago. So they don't have a lock down they've banned. They've closed schools big religious services and other big gatherings. But they're they're closer to social distancing and they're using that in public spaces as well so instead of locking everyone down in the can't work they're putting it out in public space. They're doing You just mentioned the temperature and a lot of big buildings. Say have these things kind of like you walk through the airport. That scans you for temperature. Right is not the be all and end all but I think it's something like ninety percent of people that have is get have a temperature. So that's one way of doing it. They're also doing social distancing in the public square so again rather than closing down restaurants you go to a restaurant it'll be open and you can sit there but they'll be a table or to between you and the next Party so. I think as we have more information we might be able to do that. I think right now looking at the models and looking at the peaks for New York New Jersey which again or just about a week out. I think the president is preparing us for some really bad times like before we can get to that point. We're going to have to still climb up that hill and it's going to be. It's going to be brutal and I but I think it might look very different after two weeks if people start seeing that in the two worst cases New York and New Jersey that we've arrested the The increase in. It's starting to go down. Yeah that's true and The temperature checks are aren't a surefire thing. I mean the head of the Centers for Disease Control is now saying that you know maybe up to twenty five percent of the people who have this. Corona virus may not be showing symptoms Which is part of what makes it unusual and particularly liable to spread. But you could still catch seventy five percent. Maybe of people and stop them from interacting at a pretty low cost of some thermometers We're talking about the corona virus fight and the new talk of a federal building spree near listening to Pelvic. Watch from the Wall Street Journal social distancing slows the spread of corona virus. So we should all stay home to lower the risk for everyone more INFO at Corona Virus Dot Gov.

"When we talk about something like masks gotta understand right now from a medical standpoint. There are two big concerns right. One is the thing that is clearly on. Everyone's mind this huge rise. In cases so big starts to overflow and then boom boom you ventilator shortages treatable cases become fatal cases hospitals nearby at the extra patients that they run out of their ventilators at creates this wave. That's one concern. The other big worry. Is that even if this feels under control by June. Say we still don't have a vaccine right. If we all resume business as usual we could see cycles of this. Someone walks into their choir rehearsal somewhere and all of a sudden forty-five new people habit. That city is often running. In both of these cases officials say it is imperative to spread these events out as much as possible. That's the whole idea of flatten the curve on the so called front lines of this battle. There are people who know their risk to honest. I'm time find for my life. No they might get this virus and just anxious about what's to come. Goal is to keep them from getting it quickly to keep them from getting it all at once really put in a position where we have to do a job of really want to do all. We don't have the supplies to do that. Job Right who we are already. Starting to see. Healthcare workers get sick in large numbers. Worried that they might spread it to their colleagues. Abc's chief national correspondent. Matt Gutman. Matt What Are you hearing from? Doctors and nurses doctors and nurses are very concerned right now. They understand that you know. We use the term on the Front Lines. But they've really are and In some places like Ohio now number twenty percent of the Cova positive patients. That's a pretty high number the projection. Is We start really getting slammed into weeks but may not even hit hit the peak until mid-may and even the use of p. p. e. which they're trying to adhere to a very very strictly is apparently not enough people are still getting sick? Munster doctors and nurses die no standard chance as we die you die and that is the truth man when somebody does get sick like say a nurse in hospital are they. Are they done for weeks for months? Unusual circumstances you tell them like. Take all the time you need but here I get the sense. They feel the need to come back. Well there's good news and there's bad news right.

I just really need this to be over and I need. Ppe's so that. I can protect my family. The bright side is that many of the doctors and nurses who are getting ill and pulling through especially those with mild symptoms. Feel like now that they have the they may be able to go on the front lines and be impervious to the virus. They can be even more helpful than they ever imagined. They could be and so one doctor. I spoke to New York Dr Derek. Carr's said I'm super happy about this when I come back. I'm going to be the best frontline worker. We have 'cause I know I'm not going to get sick from this. And that's like they're confident in that sciences there for that Matt. They're confident they're not certain. Still you know if this virus holds and and acts like every other virus. We've known that should be the case. Obviously the major fear. Brad is that we will have mutations different. Strains different strains means that even people who caught the initial novel Corona Virus Gobert nineteen could be susceptible to the next strain and last question for you what our state and local governments than asking for these hospitals. Because I get that. They all want respirator masks and breathing machines but how does that work who gets prioritized? Who gets what they want? The people will get prioritized are the rich and connected. The bottom line is that we're getting all these reports of hundreds of MBA players and employees getting tests while tests are still scarce to the American Public Burke Year in California Elon. Musk Richard Branson who flew in a seven forty seven full of protective gear from China. Just for the governor of California. Those are the people who are able to obtain it to pay high market prices. The valuation and the cost of the P P now coming out of China is inflated anywhere from ten to seventy times the previous cost it is crazy uncoordinated and competitive and it shouldn't be this way and I spoke to Mayor Garcetti about this and he said and what do you do. If you're a small town you know in Oklahoma trying to find masks. What do you do if your state doesn't have the political juice or doesn't have a manufacturing base or a port like we do so anyone who can pay and can tap pipeline to fly this personal protective material and Equipment Bhakti not states? They're the ones who have it and the poor unconnected states they're going to have to make do and that's why we're seeing so many in places like Georgia in the middle of the country are starting to manufacture their own. Pp and even beyond the lifesaving stuff you talked about how nervous medical workers are that don't know they have cove in nineteen. We still don't know president trump still not able to give a timeline on when truly everyone who wants a test can get one matt. Thanks much expert and actually get more from. Abc's Eva Pilgrim because we've talked about those ambulance sirens in places like New York well. Those ambulances are driven by emergency workers and EVA. You've been seeing a spike in cases among those workers themselves. What's going on? Yeah we spoke with some of the mess workers and they tell us that more than twenty percent of their staff. Here the Fire Department staff here in New York City is out sick right now. Every day I've come into work. There's another person two or three who were out sick. Either confirmed positive cove in nineteen cases or with symptoms that are similar to Cova nineteen cases. And they haven't been tested. Our numbers absolutely of positive members do not reflect how many of our members actually have this virus right now. Last night we hit seventy two hundred twelve. We broke another record muscle. This is in large part because every single day multiple times a day Bayer interacting with people who think they have cove in nineteen or who know they have Cova one thousand nine hundred and need to go back to the hospital. We spoke with an ems worker who survived nine. Eleven survived stage four lung cancer because of what he was exposed to nine eleven. He said the air was clean down. There you don't need the masks. Look what happened everybody? We know what's going on here. And he knows every day that he goes out here and he interacts with these people who are sick and potentially have cove in nineteen or have Cova nineteen because they've gotten a positive result back. He's putting himself at risk. If I'm around somebody would cigarette. The cigarette smoke closes up my lungs and this could attack me and kill the difference though for them and they tell us. This is scarier than nine. Eleven because nine eleven was confined to one space. This encompasses the whole city respect. Everybody is a colon. Nineteen you could be set on a call where it's a car accident and you get there and you discover that the accident happened because someone was rushing to the hospital because they have someone in the car who has cove in nineteen symptoms. So you wouldn't technically don protective equipment. But we are in our. They'd suiting up for all those calls when somebody says I got a sneezing or something. Do they get suited up? What are they do Brad? This was the part that surprised me. The most they are wearing gloves. They are wearing a mask and they wear a face shield and basically what looks to me like a hospital gown them gown basically only covers your area. And it's it's disgraceful. And that is what they wear when they go into a known cova patients home when the person says. I think I have it. In all the other circumstances they're going in with just a face mask and the gloves family actually made the decision the other day not to see my son and I don't know what I'll see him again. Some of them are sleeping in their cars and not going home because they're too afraid that if they go home they run the risk of infecting their family and their loved ones last night. He asked me. You say when you're GONNA cut when you're gonNA come get me when everybody stops going to come sick only stopped going to heaven. That's when come get you. The other interesting thing they told us was if someone passes away and they have corona virus type symptoms but they haven't received the test. Those people aren't getting tested Because there aren't enough tests at this point. So they're saving those tests for the people who are alive and in the hospital unreal stuff. Eva Pilgrim in New York. Thanks so much. Thanks.

"To go through a very tough two weeks. The sobering presentation from White House officials. That convinced the president to change course meanwhile increasing number of cove in nineteen cases or American healthcare workers actually made the decision the other day not to see my son and I don't know what I'll see him again nearly twenty percent of New York's EMT's out sick or reporter followed some of the ones still working and telecommuting his tougher adults. What about kids? The district try not to sin introduced new concepts challenges. School districts are facing as the virus spreads from ABC News. This start here. I'm Brad Mielke. Let me start you off with some good news this morning. It comes from the countries that dealt with the novel Corona Virus. I in Wuhan China this morning. The shopping districts are back open. Widespread sicknesses have reportedly ceased altogether. So this is what gives us a lot of hope. This is the case finding in Italy in Italy. Meanwhile they're beginning to turn the corner. In new cases cases are still rising but not as fast is tapering off. Some emergency rooms are even starting to empty out. The point is there is some light at the end of the tunnel for places like this. The bad news is we can't see it yet here. We have done an incredible job. We're going to continue. It's going to disappear one day. It's like a miracle it will disappear remember a few weeks ago. President trump was saying corona virus. This will barely be a few days ago. He was insisting we could still be work by Easter we yesterday at the White House. Something seemed to have shaken him. I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead. We're going to go to a very tough two weeks. Dawn was the sign proclaiming. Fifteen days to stop the spread the Clarkston restarted. It says thirty days gone with the comparisons to the flu. It'd be doctor or deb up and say I have numbers but I'd rather have them say the numbers if you don't mind speak today question instead. President trump came up and introduced after FAUCI and Dr Deborah Burks who showed the rest of the country the presentation that changed his mind. And so as you saw on that slide that was our real number that one hundred thousand two hundred thousand and we think that that is the range we really believe in hope every day that we can do a lot better than that and you could kind of see this dawn on. Everyone wants the magnitude because this was not political bluster. This was not a threat eastward data driven doctor saying best case scenario within the next few months best case we will see twice as many Americans die then we lost in the Vietnam War. This is the stuff.

"Giving table with your red state uncle or your blue state niece and come to consensus about what happened or what it means or what should be done about it. It was the Democrats Democrats who got to make the rules and call the shots in the house where they have the majority. It'll be the Republicans in the Senate here a few clips that show the different planets. The two parties parties were on or at least pretended to be on as the five days and twelve. Witnesses of testimony ended yesterday. Democrats are absolutely loving the closing remarks. Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. He drew a line from the trump Russia investigation to trump Ukraine Ukraine. He closed by invoking the closing words of the late House Oversight Committee chairman. Elijah Cummings as Cummings adjourn the Michael Cohen. Hearing back in February. Remember this as a country. We are so much better than this and you know I told you. In for some reason in Michigan I tell my my my my children. I say when bad things happen to you do not ask the question. Why did it happen to me? Ask The question. Why did it happen for me? I don't know why this is happening for you. But is my hope that a small all part of it is for our country to be better. If I hear you correctly. It sounds like you're crying out for new normal for us. Getting back to normal sounds to me like you want to make sure that our democracy stays in Tak Elijah. Cummings we are so much better than this From February of course Elijah Cummings died last month but his words were resurrected by Chairman Chef as he closed these hearings with an echo of that shift said it took him a long time for him to become convinced to go down the impeachment path but it came down to what happened after after Elijah. Cummings delivered those words and after the Muller hearings on July twenty four it came down to the fact that the day after Bob Muller testified that day after Bob Mother testified that Donald Trump invited Russian. Shen Interference Hey Russia if you're listening come get Hillary's emails and later that day. They tried to hack her server the day after he testified that not only did trump invite that interference but that he welcomed the help in the campaign they they made full use of but they lied about it. They obstructed the investigation into it. And all this is in his testimony in his report the day after that Donald Trump is back on the phone asking another nation to involve itself in another us the US election that says to me this president believes he is above the law beyond accountability. And in my view there is nothing more dangerous than unethical. President who believes there are above the law and I would just say to people watching watching here at home and around the world in the words of my colleague. We are better than that. The emotional end of these five days of impeachment hearings from Chairman Adam Schiff by way of contrast the ranking Republican Publican. Debbie Nunez's closing remarks also referenced. Those two days in July but frame them very differently July twenty four. Th of this year special counsel Robert Muller Testifies to Congress about his report which debunked the conspiracy theory you that the trump campaign associates conspired with Russia to hack the two thousand Sixteen Election July Twenty Fifth Jeff. Just the very next day. A new anti trump operation begins as someone listens to the president's phone call with Ukrainian President Zelinski Alinsky and leaks the contents to the so called whistle blower so for Nunez. The trump Ukraine investigation is just the latest and the permanent in in State of Democrats desire to impeach looking for a crime to hang it on for many Democrats. Trump has campaigned and governed from day one as a unique threat to democracy and he's been too slippery to get held accountable. Maybe until now for many Democrats can they stop him before his authoritarian dreams teams get too far so here we are with me now. Is Tim Mack. Who covers politics and national security for? NPR Hi Tim. Thanks for coming on. Hey thanks for having me. How much do you think both sides believe what they're saying it's hard to divine? It's hard to get in the minds of these folks but you know I mean it does seem that over the course of this week. There's been very little movement In response to your question about whether or not Republicans might change their mind. Democrats might change their minds. There's been very little movement very little suggestions that there are Republicans willing to change their mind and vote in favor of impeachment if it does get to that or Democrats willing to change their mind signed and oppose it. Here's a clip from yesterday. That makes that point. And maybe this is GonNa be the overarching conversation in the Senate. I don't know if the evidence isn't really disputable Maybe we'll hear a lot of Senate Republicans calm down like probably the most moderate Republican on the Intel Intel Committee the most prominent I should say the most moderate Republican who got to ask questions over these five days of hearings. Congressman will heard of Texas axis who is also not running for re election next year. So He's free to speak his mind than many others and to be clear. He does not support impeachment. But here's here's how. He framed his position in his final session yesterday. So why are we here because of two things that occurred during the president's July twenty fifth phone call with Ukrainian presence. Alinsky the use of the phrase. Do us in reference to the two thousand sixteen presidential election. Listen in the mention of the word Biden I believe both statements were inappropriate misguided foreign policy and it certainly not how the executive current are in the future should handle such a call over the course of these hearings. The American people have learned about a series of events. That in my view have undermined our national national security and undercut Ukraine a key partner on the frontlines against Russian aggression. Congressman will hurt. So Tim. How much do you think we're headed for a lot of that in the Senate versus chamber full of Devin Nunes is in Jim? Jordan's saying this was fine. Stop Stop Picking on him. I think you've already. I mean there. There doesn't really go By a single day in the Senate where senators are not asked by reporters. What do you think of the latest developments on the house impeachment inquiry? And do you think that the president's actions were appropriate. You'll you'll find that you know. Generally speaking there are some Republican lawmakers. That say this was inappropriate. But it's just not This does not rise to to the level of an impeachable offense. Let's take a phone call Gail. You're on the air. Thanks for calling in jail. Good morning thank you. I have been wondering about this for a long time I'm a Democrat and make no mistake. I would like trump to be in in jail for the rest of his natural life. And I'm wondering I need more information about how we know that Joe Biden and Hunter Biden have been exonerated from any wrongdoing. I take as the case. That Joe Biden was this commissioned by our government and international partners to see to it that the prosecutor in Ukraine aim which dismissed. I take that but I would like to know how we know all of that. Tim Can you answer her question. Well on the issue of Joe Biden and I mean The folks that we heard testimony from over the course of the past week have All testified that they have no evidence to suggest that there was any evidence of corruption with regards to the former vice-presidents conduct right so that they don't have anything that would suggest that in fact many the witnesses testified that they thought that Joe Biden was a man of character. And someone who was who would not be involved in these kinds of allegations Gatien's of corruption now with one hundred Biden There hasn't been an investigation as far as I know into these allegations of wrongdoing. It's just that there hasn't been any evidence provided that he was involved in wrongdoing other than this appearance of a conflict of interest Taking this job on the board Lord of the energy company Burris MMA while his father was the vice president of the United States and very much focused on Ukrainian issues so so if Hunter Biden did do something that was sleazy if not illegal gail and if no one's been able to turn up any evidence the Joe Biden facilitated any kind of change in. US foreign policy to to help his son than how is it. Even relevant Democrats would ask to the question of whether president trump as president of the United States abused abused his power so tim. The Republicans in the House Committee wanted to call Hunter Biden as witness and the Democrats who have the power subject that did reject it when they moved to the Senate the Republicans have the majority. I guess they'll have the power to determine the witness list. Think they're gonNA call Hunter Biden. But I do know that. Senator Lindsey Graham who chairs the Judiciary Committee in the Senate has already begun a probe asking for documents commence from the State Department for example related to Ukraine This is just happening in the last twenty. Four hours or so. The does not appear the president's allies in the Senate will Be keeping away from this issue like house. Democrats ben well. There's reporting on Senate. Republicans is considering longer or shorter more detailed or less of an impeachment trial in January. Assuming they get handed this ball. What's that about and how does that that dovetails with what you just reported? Well yeah there there. There was a meeting between some Senate Republicans and the president just yesterday. Evidently the topic of of impeachment at did come up on. But we're really getting a a little bit of head of ourselves right because we're still at a very early relatively early phase in in this process. The House Intelligence Committee has not announced that they've concluded their hearings into Into this issue They could good well announced additional hearings after Thanksgiving. We don't know they haven't said and the House Speaker. Nancy.

That is ready to meet the needs of tomorrow visit. AARP DOT ORG now one more thing. Oh this is a bell So we'll see if this is really Gucci or not that's tech reporter Jay Green. Oh Yeah so this is a Louis vitton style. Oh Bag. And he's opening up luxury items that he bought from third party sellers on Amazon except some of them are fake. This is the the Air Maze Bangle Bracelet. Now if you get really close you actually see it. Says Air may rate in their Jay says that this is a big problem album for Amazon and by the way it's worth mentioning that Amazon. CEO Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post. Its platform is massive. And it's hard to police all the dark corners of it and so you see issues crop up occasionally things like bogus reviews. The sale of dangerous products in counterfeits has been an ongoing issue for Amazon for awhile. What's interesting to me about it? Now is the Amazon has talked a lot about spending significant sums of money to address the issue. It's talked about hiring a lot of people to focus on the issue and yet what was remarkable to me was how absolutely easy. It is to find obvious. Counterfeit items on Amazon by some estimates Amazon has about two point five million third party sellers and on any given day there are around five. Five hundred million products listed on the site. Amazon says ninety nine point nine percent of the page age views of its site land on pages that have never received a notice of potential counterfeit product. But what that means is that point one percent and roughly do and given that Amazon has seventeen point six billion page views per month. That means that about seventeen point six million patriots to use land on pages that have received counterfeit notices when settlers so fake items on Amazon. A variety of folks could get hurt clearly. The brands that that are being counterfeited. Get hurt. But they're also buyer's who were getting duped by this as well Miami arena and I live in Yohannes built South Africa by talk with one man who purchased a thousand dollar tag heuer watch that normally would have gone for about thirteen hundred bucks on. Ah I decided to buy it. You know knowing that was. I'm assuming a I didn't expect to get a a watcher wasn't auditing. Then he got right and he realized it was fake. It was like like watch. Okay but they can't. They work to cut that comes with these watches was not stumped and honestly the Amazon. Didn't give him his money back until I asked him about it. An almost allow them to continue sailing. They didn't stop the at all for four months. These guys were allowed as much as they actually open. Pick on company but there are other kinds of counterfeit items supplements baby products toys. And there's concern that folks folks buying counterfeits of those products. They can get hurt as well. One of the reasons. uh-huh why counterfeits proliferate on Amazon is that addressing. The issue is really hard because Amazon focuses on adding selection election to the website as vast as Amazon is it truly is difficult to police every corner and so instead of vetting. The sellers as aggressively Lee as some brands in some consumers might want Amazon has instead put the onus more on the brands themselves to to check the products after they've been listed and then notify Amazon of frauds. If Amazon wanted to step up these efforts parts its critics would say the company needs to do it before the products ever get on the site. The first place the critics would say Amazon needs to vet the sellers. I better rather than wait for products to come online and pull them down. After the fact there have been complaints it's about any number of online marketplaces that becomes her flea market for fakes but Amazon is the biggest online marketplace and and so the problem is particularly acute for Amazon.

"Orchestrating this entire farce with the whistle blower and lying about their secret meetings with him. Maybe that's a remarkable in the sense that this Marchington after all and we're gonNA take these sides but you know there is a way of looking at this impeachment inquiry that if you just try for second to strip away the politics of it right. There's a fact pattern here and a story that the American people deserve to hear Clearly many of these witnesses agreed with that as well and so it was just really kind of a remarkable to see the times that this people would try and steer this away from the story at hand and try to make it about something else I would imagine that is going to be the the contours of debate going forward and what is happening next in the process so it sounds like we're all going to get a very welcome break next week for the week of Thanksgiving brief break. We don't expect to hear from anymore. Witnesses maybe we'll see a deposition or so. Oh he released here and there. I think still an open question of whether the intelligence committee will have more witnesses after the Thanksgiving holiday. But it we're getting I think to the end stage age of this portion and then what will happen is the committee will write up a report because remember they are sort of the investigative body here so they'll read a report based on everything that they they found in all the depositions from the closed door hearings and that will then go over to the Judiciary Committee and that is where you would see articles of impeachment actually drafted that if we go to that phase and do you think that it's basically a foregone conclusion that that committee and later that the House will vote to impeach the President I do. I think that that that seemed pretty clear. Going into this. But the hearings have provided some really kind of riveting moments and really laid out some key fact patterns in the narrative here is really quite clear and I think the Democrats quite deliberately kept it very focused on the president and Ukraine this issue and didn't go down to many sort of side paths. Didn't bring anything from the Muller reported in some people thought that they might. It's always felt like it's been moving that direction but I think the Democrats and you can tell from their line of questioning feel that they did their job here and that they have a very strong case.

She might play a few more tournaments but we might not see her again on a big stage until i'll show you yeah and i think what what that is is sort of the the unfortunate side of his age eligibility rules yeah <hes> they're put in obviously to ease the players transition to cut down on some of these stresses and you know you you mentioned i think in her case in particular she's in good hands. I don't think there's a family that's gonna trace. They're all over the world and make a few bucks. I think our agents gonna manager responsibly but she he falls under these rules and she's really restricted in what and where she can play and the question now sort of becomes. What what are you gonna do. I mean does does. She play lay a few of these sort of twenty five thousand dollar events where i'm not sure. She has much the game there and everyone job. He'll be celebrity of the tournament but she won't get much out of it. Does she sit tight until australia. Which is a long time from now especially when she needs matchplay and on the one hand she proved that she can play at this level but he's also coming off <hes> defeat in which he wonders three games <hes> i mean i think what we're seeing is kind of how these rules can be problematic unbalanced silence. I think they're a good thing i mean i think there's too much history and tennis to ignore of players that didn't make good decisions if people around young players who didn't necessarily have their best interest chris <hes> at first and foremost but the flip side of that is we may not see cocoa play much until australia and i'm not sure you're from a tennis perspective. That's the best thing for her game right. Now anyone else stick out for you any <hes> any good any good stories that maybe didn't make it out of the locker room or the media center that you wanna enlighten us with man <hes> i yeah i gotta figure out what i can. I'm out will to talk about it and what i'm not <hes> i i love the crispy on story for all the pushy tennis players. We've seen here player here parents who are trying hard to get to quit that ben rothenberg wrote about her parents who say listen. You've gotta stanford degree enough with tracy tennis. Can't you get a real job. <hes> that stands in stark stark contrast to but we tend to think of when we talk about tennis parents <hes> i i think the asaka is an interesting story to follow <hes>. You think there's a lot going on there and there's been a lot of change in her life since she won australia..
