CDC recommends Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, enabling inoculations to start this week
"The CDC now given the green light to distribute Johnson and Johnson's Corona virus vaccine, what we know and it's shipped out. I think I saw where some of the vaccine went yesterday to the UPS World port here in Louisville to distribute this vaccine. Yeah, it looks like they're they began doing the shipping yesterday. They'll continues day According to what we're hearing. The plan is for the first vaccines to go into arms. Americans tomorrow and this is the game changer. Part of this, Tony, It's a one shot deal. You don't need to get the two shots like you need to get for five. Her Moderna. You don't need to get the one and then follow it up a couple of weeks later, it's just this one singular shot. Also does not need to be stored in ultra cold temperatures, and the FDA gave the approval to a 22 to nothing universal approval that this should go forward here. So it look, It's really good news on the attack against coronavirus because now we've got three different vaccines that we can get into the arms of Americans if you get a Senate passing Joe Biden's coronavirus relief package. Then that would get money out. The states who have had a hard time getting vaccines centers created and pulled together to be able to do exactly that. That could also help on the front of covert here, especially while our numbers greatly as far as the country go for new cases are down across the country, And while you're looking at that you're looking at hospitalization numbers down across the country as well. So there's a a no overall belief right now from health officials doctor found she's saying it over the weekend. That this is the time to really take advantage of those down numbers. This is the time to get out there with more vaccines and just sort of flood the market if you will, with them spend some concerned about the J and J vaccine as it hits the market I saw I think in the UK was like 66% efficacy if I'm not mistaken, but How does it differ from five year majority of you know Well, the study found the company's vaccine to be 66%, effective overall and preventing moderate to severe covert 19 cases. The for diseases judged severe or critical. Their effectiveness is an 85%. So that's when you're talking about the variants like you're South African, your South American, the Brazilian version of it. UK version, like it really is effective against at a higher level than the other vaccines against those particular variants, So they're also trying to determine whether or not this will stop the spread of Cove it rather than just deal with the symptoms once somebody has them, so they're all kinds of elements. They're coming into play for this, and I'll also add this. Johnson and Johnson is announcing that they plan to test its Corona virus vaccine on infants, newborns and pregnant women. They're gonna be the first one That goes down into the younger demographics for this and put the tests through for it. We know that both visor Moderna are expecting to do that. But you're looking at Johnson and Johnson. They're getting ready to go from the age is between ages of 12 and 18 to start off and then almost immediately worked their way down into infants, pregnant women and their immune compromised immuno compromised people so They're definitely opening the door here to try to see if we can get to the point where eventually everybody will get a shot literally a shot at getting vaccinated against Cove in how many doses are expected to be distributed. That's part of the question here, because what we had heard initially from Johnson and Johnson was they were going to have $100 million is ready to go. They've got 3.9 million that are ready to ship out right now, so that's supposed to be the major portion of it here. Going to come back with the other 16 million doses by the end of March, probably in the last last week, or maybe even going into April a little bit there. They're hoping to have it all done out by March. But then that's going to be the majority of what we get for a little while. As we start to head into the spring time in

I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg. Jules. Thanks so much Ed. Let's get back to James Sullivan, managing director and head of Asia X Japan equity Research JP Morgan with us from Singapore. So why don't you talk about what the PBOC is doing? Because we're being continually told there's no need to worry about liquidity tightening, particularly head of Chinese New Year we did see the PBOC drain ¥150 billion by Rivers repose the most since October, but What did you take away from Governor Egan kind of trying to come sentiment earlier this week. No, thank you. That's very question. I think we have to push the government actions that the contract I into context. 150 million RMB equates to about $23 billion. It's important to note that in December we saw the highest ever inflows into China about $25 million. So you're in effect is taking a one month of capital inflows. We are still bullish on the arm be looking forward into 2021. We've actually taken our forecast forward 6.25. We thought we'd hit year end. We now think we'll hit that mid year. On the strength of the overall Chinese economy, Obviously first in first out of the covert crisis, we're still seeing relatively strong friends across the board. I would differentiate, however, a Zoe look across the impact particular view of politics in China. One of the statistics has come out recently that I do think it's important to focus on his 73%. And that's the percent of individual surveyed in the United States that have a negative view of China and the most recent survey from Pew Research that puts the bite administration in a bit of a box in terms of their ability to loosen restrictions. Which sounds very negative. However, what I'd highlight is this is primarily attacked, driven conversations as both sides push national security arguments to try to drive supply chain self sufficiency outside of the tech space. The most recent American Chamber of Commerce survey in China had 63% of the U. S. Companies in China outside attack. Having a significantly more optimistic outlook for their business post the U. S election. So I do think you're gonna see a several different stories going on in China, particularly for US companies just going to that tick pace. We did see quite a lot of movement in Taiwan yesterday on the back of Microsoft earnings, so against essentially even though we're looking for these overall recovery, a lot of the trends and themes for 2020 a kind of here to stay Yeah, Someone was interesting is that you saw significant amount of short covering. I'm primarily in the PC related stocks, which which had been underperforming. Many of them were limit up off the Microsoft earnings. Is you very rightly say on top of that, however, it's also important to note the hideous and see you guiding founder utilization at 100% in the most recent quarterly earnings call, So I do think that the outlook for the semi states in particular continues to be quite strong. To the degree that you have rolling lockdowns continuing to provide wind beneath the sales of work from home stocks. Then I think you'll feel continues. He rebounded from the PC names off of the lows that we've seen over the course of the past couple of months. But broadly speaking, we're still very constructive on tech, particularly the semi space where you're still seeing signs of significant shortage in particular sub sectors on autos would be the obvious candidate go Constructive on career. Oh, is that Cosby rally running out of a little bit of staying here? So it's an interesting scenario. We joked in a prior conversation that the way markets were moving, where we're gonna hit index targets for 2021 before we even done 2021. That's to some degree been the case around the region in Ozzie, and we still see very strong economic growth, as well as the potential for positive earnings surprise, But markets have moved a lot similar story in Korea on so again. It's it's time to very selective. We are looking That particular sub segments for strange moving forward, But it's really a continuance of this growth to value rotation that we're seeing in many markets around the world That has been somewhat haphazard, but it's something that we do think will play out more details. You go through 2021. Just very quickly. James. I wanted to talk to about some of the smaller areas and countries markets here in Asia because you've met with the commerce and finance ministries of Thailand and you've also met with Bank Indonesia.

Thailand still seeing very strong export growth, particularly manufacturing sector signs is that will continue are contained in the data points point into very strong imports of raw materials, and you are seeing rising public sector investments. And so Thailand is a market that we we have an overweight stance in Indonesia's exciting for a variety of reasons. We are seeing significant progress on changing What the structure their capital markets, particularly after back in the sovereign wealth funds you are you are also seeing excitement in Indonesia off the back of a range of unicorns in the e commerce and fintech space is that you don't necessarily see across many housing market.

"Mr Randy Wings at the Sports desk in Culver City. Well, John, as if the vaccine roll out in California wasn't already slow enough. San Diego's putting a hold on a possible bad batch of the modernists. Oh, bad batch. A couple of people got some allergic reactions more than usual. So they're putting a stop to that one first trip only then the vaccine. 802 22 k A. B. C is the number 1 802 2 to 5 to two to. It's a pleasure to welcome our next guest to the program. She is a trauma surgeon, an expert on mass casualties. Former chief medical officer for Harris, who you can follow on Twitter at Dr Kelly. Victory. Doctor Kelly Victory Welcome. Hey, John. Thanks for having me and having me back. Um, listen, I got to tell you, um Gavin Newsom has really elevated the non answer to an art form. I mean, it is stunning to me how he can absolutely obvious Kate and and avoid giving any meaningful answer when he's asked a question. Frankly, Garcetti and and fake doctor Barbara for aren't far behind. But Newsome really hold, you know, he's the gold medalist in that competition. You are a very educated person. You've been student at some of the most elite institutions on Planet Earth, both as an undergraduate in medical school graduate school. You really know your stuff, and you know it on a level that the layman just doesn't know it. When you're in a in an office and you're talking to a patient and you're taking something that's extremely complex, and you're trying to manipulate their behavior into doing what's best for their health. You're trying to explain to them the situation. And get them to do the exercise or take the vitamins or take the medication or going for the surgery or see the specialist or whatever. How important is it for you as a physician to speak in a language that your patient can understand, So there's no ambiguity at all. Is probably the most critical thing that I do is educate people. It's far more important, Frankly, most of the time than any particular action I might take really is about being clear and concise and being able to tailor your your explanation to the level and I'm not saying because people are stupid. I'm saying because they don't have any reason to know. The background in these sorts of things, So it is probably the single most important thing that we do is to make it very, very clear. The more ambiguous you are, the more people confused people are when they leave. The left likely they are to end up doing what it is that you want them to do or what you've advised. And now this what I've said from the beginning about this vaccine roll out. It has been a lack of clear communication. They have muddied the water over and over and over again, And on top of that, they've added some very confused signals. Some conflicting signals like for example. Having the brand new Dodger Stadium Vaccine Center closed because it's Martin Luther King Day. I mean, is this or is this not an emergency? Is this or is it not an urgency if you tell people always their urgency, But we're taking the holiday off. The one day when, for example, all state federal workers would be guaranteed to be able to get away to get a vaccination. If it was their turn. Or they wanted to get one and then closed the center that sends a really mixed message to people about just how urgent you believe this is Let's talk about the rate of vaccination in California. It's a pathetic 2.2% You look at the states who are doing well, West Virginia leading the charge its 6.3% Then you have Alaska at 5.4 right there with South Dakota. North Dakota is doing the great job, 5.1%. And you've got Connecticut at 4.7%, Vermont 4.5%. You could make the argument. Okay, Those are small states with small populations, and they should be able to vaccinate their population. Although you could also say Listen, people live in really remote parts of the world in those states, and it's difficult to get certain health care items to them. So just because they have a small population doesn't mean it's a population that's easy to vaccinate. Let's take a step back and look at other big states. I think it's fair to compare California to those states. You look a Texas they have vaccinated 3.5% of their population more than a point better than California, Florida 3.6%. They're doing it even better than Texas. New York State isn't 3.5% right on par with Texas, Illinois 2.7% better than California, Pennsylvania. There are 3% also better than California. Why is every other big state in the nation put in California to shame? Well, I'll tell you it's interesting because states like, um, Alaska, South Dakota, West Virginia actually should have a tougher time with that, for the reason you said they're largely rural state. With huge distances between people and what you would normally think is access to a large vaccination center. The reason those states have done so well is because they have done the update relied on community. Services rather than trying to include tons of bureaucracy and set up these mega vaccination sites. They've simply gone to the local pharmacies, not CVS, or Walgreen's, but the local mom and pop cop that people are used to going to to get their prescriptions filled. They used local Services, schools, churches to get these things done, and they've done a brilliant job at it. I can tell you almost without failure, the more bureaucracy you have, and that is, you know, sort of the typical thing for California's just throw more money at it, Rome or bureaucracy and think it's going to get better, actually, quite the opposite. The more bureaucracy involved. The worst. These programs tend to go. We see it over and over again. I would imagine the easiest facilities to vaccinate the entire population if you wanted to would be nursing homes in hospice care facilities. It doesn't get any easier than that were there. There's a captive audience. If you will. They're not going or they don't need to make it a point that you can send one nurse or attack in there with a batch of vaccines and the necessary things you would need in case you haven't adverse reaction and inoculate the entire nursing home or assisted living facility in about an hour. Seriously. I mean, it doesn't get any easier than that. So how you couldn't have gotten that done right out of the box is just beyond me. I cannot understand it. These are not people who need to arrange transportation. They don't need to make an appointment. You can simply drop in. You've got a captive audience. You could actually vaccinate all of the people who are residents and inoculate is many of the health care workers and ancillary staff is interested in being inoculated without anyone having to make an appointment or leave their workplace that could have been done on day one of the program And that's what West Virginia did. And look, these numbers are are good toe look at because you know which states are on it and with states aren't but you have to go into the details of the numbers to find out if they are, in fact vaccinating the vulnerable population and in West Virginia and other states, That's who they're starting with. We're not doing that in California. No. In fact, as you know, we've actually had vaccine wasted in California because rather than giving it to people who are interested in getting the vaccines because the people in the top tier priorities didn't line up. They ended up wasting doses and doses of vaccine, which is just criminal. That Alone should call for somebody's ouster s So the idea that you can't give away the vaccine fast enough and don't have the common sense. You work your way down the priority list and give it to the next people in line just defies logic. And truly, this is an embarrassment. I think Gavin Newsom should really be held accountable for this. Ultimately, it does all he can talk all kinds of gobbledygook about how different counties have different priorities and different approaches to this. When you are the person at the helm of this, you've been kind of really directing the pandemic response for the state from the beginning this fall squarely on his death. Why do you think so? Many politicians, including Warden Newsome and Mayor Eric Garcetti are so hesitant to say anything critical about the fake doctor by name, they'll say, Oh, the problems in L. A County with the exception of Long Beach that has their own health department when Pasadena that has their own health department and other parts of Los Angeles County or having a very tough time, but they won't be openly critical of her. She is a appointee. She is someone who could be fired and replaced and she can take the fall for all of the politicians which typically happens in government.
India starts 'world's biggest' COVID-19 vaccination drive
"The world's biggest national vaccination campaign is now underway. Not in the U. S.

Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks for having me Scott 300 million people is almost the entire population of the United States and they're going to vaccinate them all in less than six months. How do they plan to do it? Yes, So, of course, it's only about 20% of this country, and that's just the first batch. It'll take a couple years to vaccinate all nearly 1.4 billion Indians. But India is doing this in much the same way it organizes elections, which is spread out over weeks. Here, they're using voter rolls to identify people and just like poll workers carry Elektronik voting machines up to mountaintop monasteries and villages in the jungle. They have these mobile medical teams to bring vaccines on ice to the remote ist places in India. Now, most of the vaccines centers that open today are in hospitals in big cities like in Mumbai, where I am and we know today's the first day. What's the scene? Like in Mumbai? There's an atmosphere of excitement. It's frontline and health workers. Some of these air sanitation workers who are among the first one's getting vaccinated.

Now she's in the first group of 30 Million Frontline workers. Next in line is anyone over 50 or with a pre existing condition and which vaccine or vaccines? Is India using? Yes, so there are two in use here, one developed by Oxford University and the big pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca. The other is from an Indian company called Bharat Biotech. Both are being manufactured inside India. India is the world's biggest vaccine maker. And so a lot of the covert vaccines being used around the world will actually be mass manufactured right here in people choose. No, they can't and that is a bit of a controversy because most Indians will get the AstraZeneca won. The local manufacturer here is turning out about 100 million doses a month. Now half of those are for export. The other vaccine. Indian one is still in phase three clinical trials in data isn't yet out. Here is one of the critics. Deena's talk or is a public health activist. It may very well be a good vaccine. It's just that we don't know enough about except fricassee. Concerned absence off the efficacy data. I mean, people are asking the question talking. Why? Why did you do that? Why did the government approved this vaccine is what he's asking. And what does the government say? Well, the drug regulator says it wanted to have more than one vaccine available for Indians, the company behind the vaccine. Bharat Biotech, says its formula is 200% safe. There's really some speculation that the government just approved this out of pride really that it wanted to approve an Indian maid vaccine alongside one from a big multinational company like AstraZeneca. We've done stories here, of course, about hesitancy among some Americans about taking the vaccine. I wonder if that's reflected in India, too. It's much less of a thing in India. Actually, India managed to eradicate polio and lots of other diseases through big vaccine drives like this. India also has the second highest Covad caseload in the world behind the U. S. The viruses Devastated the Indian economy. And so there's a hope that you know this. This vaccination campaign allows India to return to normalcy.

"I'm Shawn Carlson. New York City's Department of Investigation has issued its report and the NYPD is response to the George Floyd protests that swept over the city in the summer. The agency's commissioner, Margaret Barnett, says the department was ill prepared and overly relied on excessive force that heightened tensions. The response really was a failure on many levels. Gothamist reporter Jake Often Hearts discussed the report's findings on the latest episode of Consider This a news podcast from NPR and W N My see, Here's that conversation with host Danny Lewis. So this report has been in the works for months and is more than 100 pages long. So what are some of the big takeaways here? Yes, so that the top aren't findings are that the NYPD badly mishandled the protests. They frequently deployed excessive force, and they provoked demonstrators in several instances. The investigators attribute this to the department's reliance on their disorder control tactics rather than a set of clearly defined protocols for policing protests. They also found that many of the NYPD officers were not properly trained in policing demonstrations. So what does the report have to say about how Mayor De Blasio and NYPD leaders like Commissioner Dermot Shea handled the situation? The report really avoids faulting or even naming specific actors here, including the police commissioner. Maybe these findings are chalked up to pour and wipe the leadership in general, their failures to set clear guidelines and coordinate between agencies. That said the report does note that the mayor's curfew, which he implemented after instance of looting and violence on a couple nights. Was really not uniformly enforced. We saw that most clearly in Mott haven, where hundreds of peaceful protesters were trapped and violently attacked by cops in right here. Minutes after the curfew without any notice at all. So the mayor and Shay have spent months defending the NYPD's response to these protests. So what have they had to say about the report? Interestingly, before the report was even publicly released, De Blasio came out with this video where he's apologizing for his handling of the protests, and some of the NYPD is action. Which we really haven't heard from him as you note, he said in vague terms that he regretted his his handling of the protests. But meanwhile, NYPD leaders actually told investigators that for the most part, they didn't do anything wrong. Report notes that these officials do not believe that officers engaged in widespread excessive force during the protests, According to the report, the NYPD leaders defended the arrest of legal observers. Denied that cops will cover their badges. Something of the report said, really strains credulity. So the report also has about 20 years, so recommendations for reforms. So what are some of the changes that it's calling for? And what are the chances that any of them are going to be implemented? Well, the recommendations air largely structural in nature, So these were things like developing a protest policing unit. And re evaluating the role of the Strategic Response group is the cops in riot gear with bikes. It also calls for rolling existing NYPD watchdogs such as the Inspector general and this village, a complaint review board into a single entity. Commissioner. Shea has said he would accept those recommendations. Ah, lot of people have also questioned how much of a difference they would really make. So is anyone in NYPD leadership going to lose their job over this? So, the department investigations commissioner said it was really beyond the purview of their inquiry. Toe call for firings or look at specific allegations of misconduct on that's something that civil rights attorneys and advocates including human rights watch, have really taken issue with. They know that without discipline, they don't expect to see any real changes and that some of these same recommendations here were issued after the Republican National Convention in 2004 after the police response to occupy in 2011. In some instances, NYPD officials who were around then who were cited for misconduct were also involved in these protests. Asked about this. On Friday, the boss, You said he would look at the actions of individual police leaders but also said it wasn't time for retribution. But for change.

Yeah, I'm actually sitting by one of the tables. It's interesting. What we have set up here is you know is about 40 stations, and we're prepared. No, no different We had to do with the H one N one. And the folks here from our health permits. I gotta believe you. No way. Oakland around the entire state held Hermann's get this. They understand what they got to do. We'll deal with whatever vaccine comes their way. And they'll be prepared to dispense it. What we did is we got ahead of it with our freezer capacity for the visor vaccine and whatever else comes material we can handle mall, But we've also know got all of our staging, and it's all set up. So when we do get the vaccine within the 24 hour period, we will be able to start to vaccinate. And we need to remind people that tear that we've been a guest required to vaccinate our specifically those that RMS workers here in Macomb County, so no one else needs stand at the doors and kind of wait for their I've seen that they want one. It's specific list of who's going to be doing what? And we've got a responsibility to do with reinvest workers here in Macomb County, the vaccine center, where is it actually located? Is that a peculiar building? It's a very large facility. You got a tremendous amount of capacity here, So it's right here in downtown Mark Clements, But again, it's not something most people see you don't really drive by. It is kind of a somewhat of a semi secluded area off down the road behind the county jail. But again, you know he's gonna have access to it. And you know, there's no no need for anybody to come here unless they've been scheduled to come here for a vaccination. I see nothing Do do the first responders. Do they contact the county to a set up an appointment to come? It's I think it's very important to remind everybody whether they're Macomb County or elsewhere. This is not available to the general public. Yet. This is the first being administered to these first responders in the hospitals in law enforcement. And then we go down the list and the general public won't get it until about the spring. And so if if someone were to show up, they would be really interfering and sort of preventing in some ways the virus from the vaccine from being administered to People who are supposed to be getting it right now. Everybody will get their chance. But we just got to stay patient. You're you're hundreds and right now, so glad you said that Frank for that reason that that's the two things we're pushing as people keep asking, You know if I got to be required to take it, there is no mandate federally, statewide or locally for anyone to take it. But, yes, there is a tiered process and no one's gonna be able to step to the front of the line. No matter who you are. It's all being guided by the federal government as well as some state guy life. And everybody's gonna have their their responsibility. And right now we know the pharmaceutical companies or I should say pharmacies have worked out an agreement with the federal government to take care of those that are the kinds of the cognitive care meaning nursing homes for those vulnerable patients by having a contract with the pharmacies, so they're gonna be handling those Here in the counties were responsible for him..

So again recapping equity surge as NPR's 32 again of 9/10 of 1%. I'm Charlie Pellet. That is a Bloomberg business Flash. Thank you so much. Charlie Pellet, You're listening to Bloomberg Business Week. We do want to get a little bit more on today's monthly jobs report. We mentioned it earlier. The U. S labor market. Charlie talked about it to rebounding slowed markedly in the month of November. And so we're looking at those cove in 19 cases hitting workers curbing the broader economic recovery. It's why markets are up because the expectation is that that is an indication that labor market report that we need more stimulus. Let's talk about the labor market with Becky Frank. Oh, it's nice of her to come back and talk with us about what's going on. President and Manpower Group North America once again on the phone from Chicago. Becky, so good to have you here. How are you? Hi, Carol. I'm doing I'm doing Well, you know, it's been a It's been a roller coaster of a morning today with the report, but we're doing well. Well. So how do you read the data points and from what you guys are seeing over at manpower Yes. So first, you know, Today's job report shows a labor market that's navigating a health crisis and I do mean navigating. You know, we're definitely not charging forward yet. We're not being pulled under either Carol. So we're still in the positive. The numbers show continued growth in a very unpredictable and I would say, more importantly, uneven recovery. Because the overall pace of growth has slowed, particularly in industries like hospitality and retail. But we saw significant gains Caroline Ops in Logistics, Healthcare Professional services. You know, so you know, we track real time data, so we weren't surprised to see the growth in these sectors based on what we're seeing on the ground. Well, so what does it mean? I mean, does it does the data Becky give you any indications of kind of What? What may come, Especially if the virus numbers get worse with your anticipation Me? You know what your expectations are that we'll start to see even more job loss at this point, but maybe more gains in those areas that were already you're seeing gains. Yes, I think again. I think the key word is uneven. So do your point about where we're seeing gains. So let's just think about holiday hiring. You know, we're tracking that trend Right now, obviously a big piece of our business. There is still holiday hiring yet it's not as we know it. And what I mean by that is AECOM verses on the rise. It shows no sign of slowing as Americans or preparing for an online season this year. That's what was driving the growth of warehousing logistics, while traditional retail slowed, and you saw that in the report this morning, you know, cashier demand right now. Normally we would be hiring for a tremendous amount of retail support in mall, you know, in store and what we're seeing now is cashiers were still in demand, but it's for pharmacies and grocery stores, not for traditional retail and so Unevenness, I think is is really important. And and the biggest challenge is shifting our supply toe where you know, closer to the demand, so making sure that we're getting the right people into the right jobs. If they go into the holiday hiring season, the jobs were There are two band Is it? Becky for part time? Full time remote. What is it for? What do we know about the demographics of some of that? Or the statistics? Yes, there are 11 million open jobs right now, In the country and for context to Carol last month, there were 10. And so we know they're you know about a million more open jobs in the cut. Free right now, and we are seeing, you know pretty significant demand in warehouse and logistics, followed by medical. We continue to see the surgeon medical and in terms of, you know, temporary or permanent. We are seeing an increase in the mix of temporary or contractor jobs. So you know, in January is about 15% of open jobs today. It's about 23% and so No, not quite doubling but definitely an increase. And that's a little bit because you know, both employers and employees are looking for flexibility, no employees or trying to navigate uneven demand. Whether its supply chain or who's ordering for them and on the employer side or the employee's side. They're wanting flexibility. And so we are seeing this increase in contract rules, but you know 23%, it means the overwhelming majority are still permanent rolls. Yeah. Which is kind of interesting. What? I'm wondering if you're starting to see any signs off cos starting to think about Okay. What are my needs gonna be six months from now, with some optimism that things are going to start to slowly get back to Normal. Like when will we start to see Cos maybe thinking longer term to make sure that they've got their you know, employees and their workforce in place when demand starts to ramp up for products and services. Yes, I wouldn't say we're seeing, you know, it's crazy to say that six months is long, You know his long term, but we're not seeing that in the six month horizon. What? I will tell you as we talked to our clients. They are hiring more around, you know, instead of just in time, they're hiring for just in case on what I mean by that is they want to have risk mitigation in place because we might be in, you know, working from home or working remotely or working, flexible schedules longer. We may need more some cyber security support than we thought we were going to need. I just talked to someone yesterday He was telling me you know that broadband and if they don't have broadband, and so We're having to go back and reset in some cases, the broadband network and so it's some. You know what we are seeing this just in case so that they're prepared to navigate the rest of the crisis versus to your question. You know, they're not quite getting ahead of it yet in terms of Hey, I want to be prepared. When this is over. We're just trying to navigate. What? What's left of the crisis. What a great snapshot of what's going on here. Becky, thank you so much really drilling down into what's happening. In the American labor Force. Becky Frank, which she is president of Manpower Group, North America, joining us on the phone from Chicago and really giving some insight in terms of where the job demand is, at this point in operations, logistics, That's something we have talked about so much. We know that that's in demand is everybody continues to buy online and we need those distribution centers certainly stocked On you. Thoughts of workers. All right, let's get back to world. The national news for that.

So but if the pandemic and the response to the pandemic lead to the disruption of health services then more people are GonNa from other causes as well so it s study.

So you now least severe scenario over a period of six months we could see around twelve thousand maternal deaths so women dying in childbirth and around two hundred fifty thousand child.

Can you talk a little bit about how cultural and religious factors can contribute to the spread of a virus? Like measles. I think what happens is people mistakenly look at their religion and say we shouldn't be getting back seen. There's really no religion that prepare bits back Saination, although you can get backs religious exemptions in forty seven hundred fifty states from these school laws, but the other big concern is people attributing problematic. Things toback scenes that the science doesn't support. For example. If ninety percent of children are vaccinated the ninety percent of the bad things that were going to happen. Anyway, we'll happen in backs and aged children just by coincidence. What you need is science to determine what is causally related coincidentally related, and where the science has shown, for example with autism. Is there is no causal relationship between the measles mumps, rubella, vaccine and autism and the benefits of the vaccines, far far outweigh the risks. Missiles is not a trivial disease. Temperatures are often one hundred and three hundred and five degrees Fahrenheit. Children are very very sick. And we have a way of preventing it, and we need to get that across, but aren't these vaccinations required? Like Howard people avoiding getting their children vaccinated. First of all the vaccines are generally required for entry to school. So you have a whole period prior to school where there is no law in actual fact, second is all laws have exemptions. All fifty states have laws with. Medical contra K in contraindications as an exemption. Forty seven states have laws with. Religious exemptions and a number have personal belief exemptions. And it's these exemptions. If they cluster could be fertile ground for spread of measles. If it's introduced before a vaccine was introduced in nineteen sixty three how common was it. The contract measles. Before vaccine was introduced virtually everybody got measles while you're an estimated roughly four million cases of measles. A year in the United States about five hundred deaths about forty eight thousand hospitalizations. It was not a trivial disease. And how effective is the vaccine. What are the chances that you can contract measles? Even if you are vaccinated vaccine is very effective on average after the first recommended dose about ninety three percent of people at protected and after the second dose more than ninety seven percent of our protected.
