Is the COVID Vaccine Helping or Hurting the Virus?
"Why should we agree to a vaccine mandate at all. Well we shouldn't. And i mean we need to have a real conversation of whether or not vaccine is actually contributing to the spread of the virus and just look at the data the more vaccinated. We become more all of a sudden people. Become infected is the vaccine slowing the spread or is it earning the spread. That's a legitimate question. Let's stop it because people are gonna go crazy. Media matters pay attention little. What's his name boo typing. If you talk to real virologists not politicians tell you. Every virus has a life cycle. It's like a bell curve and they need to burn out and what your saying could in fact be the scenario that these experimental vaccines are delaying the viruses capacity to burn out in the population. That's what you're talking about correct. That's right yeah. Just as a objective analysis which country is doing better sweden or israel which one has embarked on a mass inoculation strategy. Israel did as much of vaccines and in seventy eighty percent of the population. They did a booster shots. They did lockdowns mass. Everything and their case per population is much higher than that of sweden. Back open for business. That's right yeah. And of course had the most mature response to the virus back in last year. They did a little bit of lockdowns last summer and a little bit last winter. I wish they wouldn't have lockdown off idea and they actually don't help at all epidemiologically but way way more mature response than israel. Much more prudent and so. Yeah that's the real question is are the vaccine helping or hurting. No one wants to say no one wants to talk about it. And the cdc has now changed. The definition of what a vaccine is no longer says that it will inoculate you against the potential transmission of you getting a virus. It will help you fight the virus. That's called the treatment
Liz Wheeler Suggests the Fear Porn Over Coronavirus Is out of Control
"So, Mr. Let's start first on the coronavirus Fear porn, which has gotten quite grotesque. You know, I've been doing cable commentary for a while, and I remember again or in Ebola and H one n one. You know, the whole thing was Don't panic. We'll figure it out. Science will get us through it. And if we don't come up with some vaccine will learn to live with it. The whole thing was don't panic, and then Donald Trump came into office. The left figured out it could use coronavirus as a political weapon, and they did. And that is real consequences, Liz. I mean, we're seeing this now in this Atlantic story that upwards of 50% of people who are hospitalized were hospitalized for mild or asymptomatic cases, which means some of them probably thought they were going to die because the media told them they were going to die, even though they were mild or asymptomatic. Yeah, it's horrifying. I mean, the primary difference between how the political establishment has handled covid versus h one N one or Ebola, As we were told in no uncertain terms during each one and one and Ebola that we are Americans and we keep going. We keep living our normal lives. Do not stop. Do not do not fear. And now we're being told the opposite. We're being told. You know that you're basically a virus. You're not a person. You're a pathogen, and you have to wear a mask it to dehumanize yourself, because that's more important than anything else. It's really I mean, it's not the politics. This is a Marxist tactic as a marketing tactic. These radical leftists have been wanting for a long time to undermine our institutions here in our country and impose Marxism on the American people. They realize that if they declare an emergency, whether or not it truly is, if they declare an emergency people will fear and in their fear it will be willing to turn over their rights and liberties for the government. And so since the American people unfortunately have done so in the past year and a half the government certainly not going to stop. They're going to keep pushing the American people until One of these days, the American people hopefully you're going to say Enough is enough. We're giving, you know more power, and we're taking back. All right.

Fatality rate HIV had a 100% fatality rate. And in the beginning, nobody knew how it was spread. It took a while for them to figure it out. It was sexually transmitted And folks even back then the panic wasn't like it is now. Think about that at 100% fatality rate. I remember

Now let's talk about something here. Gentlemen that has me concerned to is the fac when i go someplace. I don't think. I need to sit there. And show somebody that i have vaccination card. I have my papers just to walk across your goddamn floor or you're resonant because guess what we did that in one thousand nine hundred forty and what was that it was through the nazi rulers. Okay and this is something that really get. My goat is the fact that all these places are sitting there all these states and everybody else wants to sit there. And tell you all you will show me your vaccination card before you come in my place. Well i don't need to go in your place then you know selfish. I don't know. But i think it's it's. It's setting a precedent to the american people who are still american that we are free people. We do not need to show our vaccination cards if my little card says i have the vaccination of we you need my record vaccination. Call my doctor well. But then you're getting right into all the medical files of people which people don't need to be sticking your nose in. I mean that's confidential information between doctor patient and that's it well there's there's hip guidelines at protect you from shit like that so you know even as a paramedic or as an officer anything like that when you roll up on a cnn. You should know about this. You roll up on a senior guy lien on the ground. He's bleeding everywhere. You're not legally to access that guy. Hey do you have aids. Have corona virus fees.

You know going around airplane going into a hotel or casino. Hey do you have a corona virus vaccination card bitch. Fuck off first of all because not. It's not your business second nipple particularly by guidelines like this. Why is this falling through the cracks and like Tom says hip guidelines only apply. When necessary. In regards to the democrats i'm leaving negative lipa guidelines. Apply all time right. They're supposed to and we use them to our favor. You know that's what you're saying. Yeah we do but still. They're supposed supply all the time. Yeah that's what we're saying. I mean th. They're supposed to apply but they don't. They only apply where they're wanted to apply. If that makes sense to you guys think we're going to be heading to within the next three to six months down the pike and what you see happening not only to society as a whole but the governmental situation also the military situation with china and russia. We're looking at a very myriad of complex situations arising within the next three to six months. Gentlemen and i don't know if we're ready so eddie. Ah you know rick you know see se. This has a diversion right now. we're going to focus a lot on corona vars in the united states. And forget the fact that you know. North korea in china you know and even russia or or becoming even more of a superpower than what they already are and our defenses are going to shit and you know people are gonna be so blindsided on the coronas stuff. They're not even gonna pay attention to. Oh hey you know. A chinese worship or a frigging. Russia worship entered the gulf of mexico. You know there. There are whatever we well. I just want to make sure that you know. That's that's what i see rick. It'd be honest with We're forgetting about all the The threats that are out there the actual military threats. I mean yeah. Cove is the threat. I get it you know. I have a few people that i was personally acquainted with friends of mine that died from this shit So it's not like it's i'm downplaying this thing but there's other threats out there that we're not focusing on right now and i think that's that's a major major problem. What do you think eddie. What do you think we're headed to within the next ninety days to six months all the first thing that's going to happen real soon. Luck is we're going to have another major lockdown within the six months. And that's what they're working toward because what they're working toward is to make sure people are locked down. Held up tight in their homes or wherever else before the election star. That's their plan. And that's exactly what they're going to be trying to do because they want to be able to get people under control in their back pocket and get them scared again. Because that's why we're going to start having so many new virus variations popping up as well so it's not so much that we have all these new virus variations which i'm sure some of them are but the problem is is that when we are not scared anymore. The virus changes once. We're not scared of that. Virus the virus changes. And they're gonna keep doing this in order to control the american people and this isn't something that we're just gonna walk away from. They're going to continue this because they know it works already. And it's their way of controlling the elections. They're going to be pushing for the mail in ballots. They're going to be pushing that all. This stuff takes place that they want to take place so that they don't have to worry about ever losing another election and they're going to be working hard to see that it happens in. That's going to be main thing that's going to happen within the next six month period and it's going to go all the way through twenty twenty two out my mouth so with the The mid serves and the actual election. You know hearing to try to keep us home and then pushed the millen ballot agenda. Because that's what they did last time. Insert mail in ballot. Shouldn't they cheated and they cheated the fucking cheating mess what they did and this time it's going to be no different. You know so once they lose grip on the first round kobe. We're getting back to normal blah blah blah. And the next thing you know shit. We've got primaries coming up. The midst boom all right delta barry. Let's go people. So i'd love to know the people that are in the hospital right now with actual provo in not just flew or not just allergies or something like that love to know that number just like before me same thing and you know. Hey myron well. We got to marry an outsource homeless. Lock it down and We're to do mellon ballots again. Oh yeah my bed got ballots. Well she can get all these cock suckers from the fricken left. That is go there. Rick leave allies just reading in there in the chat. Jean-pierre smith said that lake tahoe. Shut down because of chipmunk tested for the bubonic plague the lockdown.

"Fund ph mc gladly supports whyy and its commitment to the production of services that improve our quality of life. This is the pulse. I mike and scott. We're talking about viruses and their impact on our bodies we're surrounded by viruses all the time they live inside of us and not all of them make us sick. Some of them may actually play a beneficial role in our system. I talked about that with researcher. Eric delwar who studies viruses at vital and research institute in san francisco. So it's been a shown that if you raise mice in totally sterile environment if you prevent it's gut from being colonized with the usual microbiome which is mostly Sort of complex mixture of bacteria. They do not develop properly. They immune system develop their gut. Don't develop properly and of course you can introduce microbiome and help that adamo develop but you could also replace those bacteria by viral infection. Which will help to an immune system developed so it seems you need some kind of stimulation of the immune system very young to get the whole system rolling and proper developments that may also be beneficial viruses in the sense that they can be uncle listrik. They can actually replicate preferentially in tumor cells and some companies are developing these viruses as therapies for cancers. So just like a virus might attack my immune system in this case that virus would be attacking cancer cells in my body exactly bars. In general like to attack or replicated sales dividing it provides a good millier for their little machineries to make copies of itself just like hiv likes to divide in t cells of the immune system of the viruses prefers cancer cells. So what companies developing are engineered viruses or natural animal viruses. That are extremely specific for cancer cells. While leaving the rest of the body touched and these therapies which are making good progress in clinical trials would be equivalent of one shop therapy for.
"virus" Discussed on The Pulse
"Can be really good at getting around our defense systems. They can hide in bodies in one shape or another one example is the bare acela zoster virus. It's super contagious. It causes chickenpox. I had that as a kid. It's an itchy rash and fever. And then that same virus brought me a case of the shingles about two decades later. I asked catalina how that virus manages to attack again so that is a one of those examples of relatively large viruses. That actually have developed a lot of strategies to keep themselves alive and keep themselves persistently infecting thirteen cell types in our bodies so in the case of chickenpox the virus actually goes and leaves in neurons and in skin cells that are relatively long leave so for example neurons. You don't wanna kill your neurons. These cell types assault type that is at limited numbers in our body and play very important roles so the virus a virus. Leaving there is actually a very good way to hide from our immune system and again these viruses because are large they have strategy so they have proteins that work in you know hiding it from actively hiding it from the immune system it changes the way the cell athene immune system so they evade the immune response for example. I wanted to ask about long haulers. Who have been dealing with months and months of symptoms sometimes after a pretty mild initial case of covert nineteen. What are we finding out about that virus and how it sticking around very i think the key. The evidence is accumulating at two very clearly show that there are remnants of the virus in the body of these patients. There is a recent publication that actually show viral proteins in the god in the gi track of this long covet patients it could be that it tides in the brain for example. The brain is another placing where you don't want your immune system to attack it so it's usually a very good strategic place for viruses to go on a stay there. You know quietly until they can come back and do what they do. Finding out how viruses stick around long term or hide is tricky to study. For example catalina is interested in respiratory viruses that potentially have linked to asthma later on. But if you want to learn about the long term impact of a virus you. I have to figure out how to keep the virus around so the first thing you need to have is a way to grow and montaigne the virus alive in the lab right so some viruses are a little harder. Some viruses need things that we may still don't know what they are In the body. So it's very hard to reproduce their life cycle. Let's say in in in the laboratory or in animal models and that limits enormously. What we can to viruses need cells to infect and i mean. I don't wanna anthropomorphized them but it sounds like they're pretty picky. You need to find cells at the virus like so if the virus doesn't want infect yourself well it's not gonna go in so the first hurdle is carving the cell the virus like and and making that interaction possible so then the virus can go into a cell multiply and then you can study the virus in amounts that are you know useful. Could this whole pandemic change some of the fundamental thinking in your field to to study some of the things that can happen after a virus attacks. Yeah i think it will definitely change the priorities. I would say and also the focus of many of our labs. I mean this is not the first time that we know that these viruses that we consider very acute seems to stay longer right and we have a recent example. We'd sika and we know that they persist or the effects of the infections persist for a long time. There are a number of lives that have been studying this persistent viruses for awhile. But i definitely think we need to do a lot more. That's immunologists cow alina lopez. Chances are the pandemic will bring an infusion of research dollars to study how viruses can affect us in the long run. This may finally shed some light on some other potentially post viral conditions that play. Lots of people jets lehman. Has this look psychologist leonard. Jason knew that the covert long haulers were coming way before anyone even had a name forum you know when we began hearing about individuals getting sick With this particular virus we just assumed that there would be a certain percentage of individuals who did not recover and they ended up calling them long haulers. He directs the center for community research at depaul university in chicago. He tells me it was no surprise. Some subset of those infected just stayed sick because that kind of thing has always happened so if you look at all the different viruses that have occurred from the spanish flu nineteen eighteen to a bola serves i mean a certain percentage of people don't recover and that's what we're interested in. Why is it that some people. Don't recover from y different hosts of different viruses. That have occurred.

"Alive. That's a really good question Well what defines something being alive. I don't know. I think they are really good. And taking advantage of life things to keep propagating but since they're completely dependent. I think i think there's aspects of the definition of live that may may not apply to viruses so they may not be fully alive but like zombies. They can also be really hard to fully kill to get rid of the virus. The immune system has to kill infected cells but cavallina says many viruses find ways to hide for a lot of viruses. We know not larger more complex viruses. We know that they have strategies to stay that. Allow them to hide they infect itself from this immune response for example so this infected cell is not seeing and then if you don't eliminate killer clear it then you will have that virus always hanging around in your body sticking around in any way possible and we're finding with more sophisticated tools. Just not looking for actually fully competent viruses but looking for elements of the virus. It's genetic material. Maybe it's proteins. If we go and look for those little pieces of the virus in the body what are starting to find that a lot of this virus actually are montaigne for a long time in the body waiting for a chance what we call reactivate and actually full the together and make another virus that could you know re infect new cells eventually. It almost sounds like it's an enemy that you've beaten back. But then the enemy just waiting to regroup and at the right moment will attack again.

Your neighbors aren't gonna come. Burn your house down while they might. I don't know how you guys are austria's but it's something that we all have to live with in. Hot production is viruses. It comes to. How are you going to manage your operation now. Granted i would say that. You probably don't have a large degree of insect vectors that are going to move these viruses around the carlo. Viruses is a very specific vectors dams of Things like that. Some viruses can be transmitted via potato leaf hopper but for the most part they're very specific vectors and if you don't have those concentrations of those vectors the likelihood of transmitting those viruses via insects is very very very very very low. So you've got that going for. It is good the bigger issue that you face as growers is transmitting via mechanical. Means so workers being out in your yard cutting uninfected plant and then taken those tools over and cutting uninfected plants and bingo bango. You've got a transmission event and before long you know you're viruses spread throughout your yard and then you're selling resumes to other friends and your or you're making you're doing propagating in our little greenhouse and you're not testing for viruses and bingo bango again. Now you're spreading this virus around. So that is by far the most likely transmission method in australia for these viruses and people need to pay hyper attention to that. If they're concerned about moving these viruses around and it sounds like the regulations are in place to to assist with that as well. They're pretty darn strict. Well it depends.

"I'm going to start off this episode by something. That might be a little bit. Strange for a podcast. But i'm gonna have to look at a picture great good medium and have you describe it okay. So i'm looking at a picture of its quite dark. They're awesome Blobs that kind of yellow in squiggly in them. That's definitely a virus. I know that because of the don corona virus which has the things sticking out of the edge had sting. is that coronavirus. You got it so. This is an actual in inch of corona virus veon particles because technically viruses aren't alive. Even though there is some debate about that we could go into that whole episode. Wouldn't she loves to so we got higher really would so we call them particles there about eighty to one hundred twenty nanometers in diameter. So we're talking tiny and now like this picture. We're looking at them with our eyeballs. How beautiful picture to give us even more of a sense of just how small this really is. I spoke with hugh pennington. And he's professor emeritus of at the university of aberdeen. And he's a total legend. Greg tiny times. The diameter of a human hundreds of them would go one side of the head to the over small. Yeah just a little bit just a wee bit small so viruses come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes. Some of them are quite a bigger. Some of them are quite a bit smaller but you cannot see any of them with the regular shmegegge light microscope. Like the one that you picture when you think microscope in a lab. And that's because the size of the wave of the lies your head of me here greg. You're already we're gonna get there so like when i'm looking at bacteria like we were just saying under a microscope in the lab. I can see them. They look like teeny tiny little rods or dots on the order of a thousand times smaller than that. So how do we see them. How did we get images like this where we can actually see their structures so just to confirm when you look at a bacteria you using normal visible just normal visible light gotcha and magnification anywhere from forty to one hundred times so. This is a story of how we get to picture like this. And it's the story of an extraordinary woman who pioneered these techniques and her extraordinary life and how we get to the first ever emerge of corona virus became actually see wicked bumpers. You're listening to surprisingly lebron. This is a science history. Podcast from seeker that tells the stories of surprising. Get brilliant discoveries ideas and people. I'm greg foot. And i'm merrin. Hunts burger and. I am so excited to tell. Today's story it really is. I can't help it. It's too exciting so to begin at the beginning as it were very good place to start. We have to go back to nineteen thirty when a girl named june heart is born in tenement building in glasgow. That's in scotland. It's anybody who doesn't know and just as an aside this will come in later. People in glasgow have very distinct scottish accent. I will not try to replicate it here. Because i think that would be very offensive. But it's like super thick like extremes in glasgow for little bit for like six months. Did it take you to get used to the watching. The wire dial your air into use it exactly so her mom is a shop assistant. Her mum as you goes with day dot is a bus driver so they're a pretty working class. Low income family on june is ten. Something really sad happens to their family. Her little brother who's six dies of diptheria which is a really terrible bacterial infection that targeted a lot of young children back then which we now have a vaccine for which is great but this experienced stays with her for the rest of her life and so we'll see that thread kind of as we go along by all accounts as a young woman. She is totally voracious readers who just inhales anything thrown at her. She's incredible in school. She reads classics fiction nonfiction. She wins a bunch of prizes at school for science. And i spoke to laura marks. Who's visiting research fellow in the department of medicine at cambridge and she wrote quite an extensive biographical article on june. Jane always had an interest in science and infant school shaved managed to win the prize for silence. Us some very good student in that subject. She also had a very strong hashim food. Photography and video began taking i gross. You know what got links to the rosalind franklin episode that we started this season there is something career as that. We were going to get to this episode. That is gonna blow your mind in is directly related across lynn franklin. Okay can't wait for that. So even though she is obviously extremely bright extremely motivated excelling in school. She can't afford to go to university and her family can't send her so she has to leave. School at sixteen with the equivalent of what in america would be like a ged like high school diploma. What we call. Jesus e yeah. Yeah something like that. I think it's a different kind of certification at this time in the forties but yes so she leaves school and she has to get a job to help her family out. And where does she get a job. Photography go the other route sixteen years old. She just pops over to the glasgow royal infirmary and says hey can have job please. Wow i do not think i would have had the wherewithal at sixty to just show up at a hospital and be like ham. Good science unique job. Please doing what she's offering to look after people hale without surgery i will. Lara explained she managed because an apprenticeship to become a lab technician in the palm of histopathology and thus way she got the technical training and as a result of the apprenticeship. She goes sanrio twenty-five shopping week. Just anyone who's interested that's around one hundred twenty three pounds or one hundred and sixty dollars in today's money per week so like golly not a lot of money. Five plus long days of show really rough and intensive time with this microscope looking at tissue samples to see you know what may be wrong with the tissue If there's any infection so we're getting into microbiology looking at things that are super super tiny but if she loves photography she's gonna adore that and this is what lar- has to say about that. In terms of working with microscope. She loved taking pictures and trying to work out. Good compositions so that stood her in. Good stead for becoming a departure. I think this is such a cool example of these two skills. That's melding like her. Interest in photography actually makes her way better at microscopy. 'cause she knows what to look for and she knows where in the picture where in the field to find the bacteria. I don't know this is actually kind of hard to express but we knew have a slide under a microscope. It's actually kind of hard to find what you're looking for. You have to scroll around. You have to adjust the focus and so in bacteriology which i just did a couple of weeks ago. We often had people. Like i raise my hand quite often being like consistently helped me with microscope. I can't find my bacteria right. Yes like a needle in a haystack. Problems and it takes a lot of skill. I'm thinking it's it's not just two dimensions right. You had actually. The sample is trying to squash between glass. Or whatever it is it's still three dimension hence going hunting in that direction with the focus is the focal length. Exactly and it's definitely not as three dimensional as some of the microscopy techniques. We have today but there is a little bit of depth of field involved but for the most part we do smush out flat which actually causes some problems when we're looking at tissues because that's not how they are in the human body just one fat so she's getting all of this expertise. She's becoming a microscopy effort. As.

Getting a little had our every day but this is my question because I wanted to ask you this and you skirted. About two sessions ago. The question is, what do you think of Covid Oh copy? You told me you couldn't tell me I'm ever since s what you should tell me what what do you think of it? Well Colbert I wrote in January when nobody really thought it would be a big thing and I had read the foreign press because the Yang US press is done for we don't have a free press. We don't have investigative reporters anymore get on a digital blah blah blah. It's propaganda is propaganda from ABC. So you have to start reading the foreign press and came across a very scientific article about the virus and they had sequenced the genome of the virus and found that had an insert manmade insert into. The. H. I. V. Virus and I said, well, let's band me. It's been in the library. So That's how we knew was made and elaborate then you then then you have to. Do this and for what purpose you know. Then you investigate a little Detroit, then he found out that the US government NIH national. Health actually sent three point seven, five, million dollars to the Wuhan Virus Lab that of fact does apparently and a few years ago US WHY WE'VE FINANCING THE WAND virus lab you don't that's a BIOLAB of for the military. And so you know started coming together I said, well, this is how they're going to crash the bike it. Three years ago, forecast the crash at of the election I didn't know what causes now we knew. That must be it. So a matter of fact virus burt. So let me let me ask you this question because we have. You know Stockman is rise Reagan's budget director. And I asked him at the end of the program is what what trump do you guys should listen to interview with David Stockman is fantastic. It is funny. Frightening Anyway I said what? What would Reagan do? That trump would not do without hesitation. David Stockman who has a theology degree from Harvard said he would. Reagan what a fired at immediately. Now at three I've read in that. What so I watch trump sit up there on the stage and this little foul J. Call the Fascist Pouch -I. He sits there and trump doesn't dare touch them. Yeah. That's Kinda spooks me and then what Stockman calls. Kerchief later kerchief. Woman. Doctor burks are ex yeah. Faucher Burke and trump's stands away from them. Do you think they have something on him power or what what's going on? I've asked that. Same question to myself, and I think it's the following the very popular in the media. They know that if you've fired them he would expose themselves to just a barrage of criticism from the left side saying the fired them because they don't. They don't want to go on with with the trump's theories about the virus. and. So he said, let's end beyond the media. Let them destroy themselves and foul she is destroying himself with all of this fake stop. In January is that you don't eat mass you can go to the super bowl no province. Yeah. Then the heaver. All no mass gatherings she'll allowed gotTa River mask even when you're home, you're sitting on the toilet you gotta have a mask Joe. But. I think they're destroying themselves and I think trump is. The leave it alone they will destroy the in right now I see it on twitter. People hate this guy. I call them the fake FAUCI. And that's where he is and you have good book out called fake you should really publicized that more. Faking. So anyway. The last that foul she said was you should have a mask when you having sex and said, well, some of my girlfriends I should have had a mask on but anyway. That's I can't say that anymore. But anyway burnt you know about that I wonder if social distancing applies to the bedroom, well, it depends on who you're with. But anyway, what what he was saying he was recommending young kids have masks on when they're having sex with girlfriends going that might be a good idea. Anyway.

I saw a story today about Secretary Treasury, Secretary Steven Mnuchin, talking to talking about getting the trump administration to try to issue some executive orders to address some of these things that Congress just cannot get get get done Yeah. It is look I mean the one of the last times that I was on here before this week with Kai he asked me if I thought it was if we were at the bottom or if it was going to get worse and and I said, I thought it was going to get worse because Like. I said yesterday I look at the bottom shelf at the grocery store. It's not looking good. However I'm going to move to my news fix because it actually is a little bit tiny bit uplifting Yes. which is that there is some really optimistic and Hud apparently like me people like my twas ever this. I know exactly. It's a new T. shirt was ever. Merch. I'm sure I got that from a book somewhere probably anyway The treatments for plasma treatments look good The you know we had a lot of sort of false starts of things that they thought meaningfully help people who are suffering from this terrible disease but for everything bad, that's happening. The science is getting better. The science is improving treatments are improving people are more likely to survive, and even though we don't have enough p. p. e., we don't have enough resources for hospitals. We don't have enough social distancing masking, but people are surviving more and yes, I would love it. If people did smart things, not stupid things to prevent this disease from spreading. But in the meantime I am still incredibly pleased that because of science and people working so hard in the pharmaceutical industry in hospitals in research labs and universities all over the country progress and all over the world progress is being made and there are people who will survive this virus today that would not have survived this virus a couple months ago, and so yes, we should keep up the. Yes we should keep up the pressure on our lawmakers and everyone around us to do the right thing. But I think it's worth taking a moment to acknowledge that. In. That regard things are getting better. So. Yeah. No I love the and lately news fix for one of my wife. I mean, it's really true I. One of the interviews that we did for our special was with Safi call who is a biotech investor, an author and That is one of the things he talked about that. By the time, we even get to a vaccine. We may be at a point where the corona virus that where covid nineteen much like HIV. Is a chronic condition and not fatal one for many many more people and that is you know and there's this sort of like. It's awkward to talk about death rates but they are a bit lower and the reason the therapy the treatments are improving that I thank you because I completely agree it is sincerely. Hopeful. Story and you know go science. Go Science, and also because the survival rate is improving because of these new treatments You know I I'm always very careful about conflicting economic story and the. Story but. When people can survive it it's a different discussion about how we treat the economic problem because yes, you have to get the virus in check in order to for the economy to recover but. And that makes controlling the virus. Definitely, a higher priority than saving the economy. But when you have just untold numbers of people dying and we still have a thousand people dying a day. So it's still terrible but given the spread of the virus if we still had New York type fatality rates as this is spreading all over the country. then. You really couldn't think about the economy it would just be fingers crossed hopefully, if I believe in the optimism of the human spirit that would be the thing that we were all really worried about. So yeah. Yes. The viruses the economy full stop. Indian it's under control. We can put all the other things back together. This seems like I'm sorry. Yup. Place to keep smiling. And I'm sorry I didn't explain earlier about the bottom shelf thing I second reference. But in the grocery store on the bottom shelf, a lot of times, the lower cost items that people who are struggling financially might buy, and also you know there's certain items at the grocery store that only that people who are eligible for snap or wick food benefits are able to buy and not, and so you know they have a little label on those and you'll find that those things are sold out a bit more often than they used to be also. Yep. Shake me go molly. We're the smile time. I. Like one million people sent this like tweeted. To me directly as a make me smile. It was trending. All Day somebody I mean I cannot tell you how many some several people tax it to me like everybody's like look make me smile and then as a result I have had the song that I'm about to refer to in my head. The whole day I literally had to listen to on my rage run because I couldn't stop singing it in my mind but it is indeed the most delightfully charming video. You will ever see and it goes my theme of Unity. Unity building because it's two teenage boys have a youtube channel in which they basically listen to song for the first time and react to it. And also they they've got like a boxing photo in the back. There's one point where they're like this song would be great for wwe walkup for wrestling and I was like I'm right there with you.

Virus itself to create doubt around how to respond to it, and it's been pretty scary to watch really as fast as the virus has been sprinting. That info is spreading just as quickly Brian. You say the Info can be deadly. How so I'm very worried that when the vaccine comes out that a good chunk of the US population is going to forgo for these reasons are ready. Surveys have indicated that as many as a third of Americans, have said they won't take a vaccine, and it's really concerning Dr. she actually said just recently that he is very worried that if you can't get north of seventy, five eighty five percent of people to agree to take the vaccine. Effectiveness won't work in the way we wanted to work which is to really protect society, not just individuals yesterday, the trump administration formally notified congress of its intent to withdraw from the World Health Organization. Do you think this move affects our ability to address the INFO democ and the pandemic something like that is really a consequence of the? Show has really emerged as a very convenient villain for some people who want to craft conspiracy theories. At the same time. There's an element here where the w show is not done very well, and in fact, public health across the board has not really been great about having a clear message on this, and that's understandable to a certain degree, because this is a new virus. We learn new things about it all the time, so the messing around is going to. To evolve conspiracy theories within this dynamic atmosphere succeed in part because they offer really easy answers, really clear narratives at a time when we're just in a period of confusion and a lot of people wanNA latch onto that, and that's why they tend to thrive why they tend to almost spread like a virus does. If you're someone who's listening to this, who thinks I want to not spread misinformation or disinformation? How do you suggest people go about doing that? Fighting Info is a lot like fighting. Pandemic distancing is really key. See Information especially. If you have some doubt about his providence slowdown, do not smash that twitter like button. That's a good way to ensure that if there is misinformation out there, it doesn't just jump person to person quite as quickly so we need to social distance. Our information is what you're saying. We absolutely need to social distance or information. Unless you're sharing one of my stories, in which case you absolute,.

"Too late, and then the body realizes that you've now got a really serious infection and they're just pushes the nuclear button. And so you'd really want something in the middle, but it's that pushing the nuclear button. That's really a problem, because of course when you push, the nuclear button is kind of mutually assured in relation, and so the body's really getting sick to try and beat this virus, but in the process hurting itself. That's exactly right, and so normally. I mean a lot of people here. Inflammation and they think that's bad. Inflammatory. We take anti inflammatory drugs all the time. advil things like that. We don't want inflammation, but inflammation is actually a really important part of the initial. Your body takes to control infection, and the purpose of inflammation is to really contain that virus infection to where it is, and not allow it to spread throughout the body so it's really inflammation is really good and really helpful when. It's causing things like the symptoms of the common cold. That's inflammatory cytokines. Telling sells Hey, go to the upper respiratory tract. There's a viral infection. You need to kill those infected cells. You need to start making antibodies. We need to get this virus Outta here when that doesn't happen initially, and then it happens across the board. It's saying we don't know where the inflammation is. So let's just attack everything, and that's when you start to see this release. Severe pathology that some of these covid patients have that's really hopeful to understand, and it explains a lot about why. The, symptoms are both so severe and also there's such a diverse presentation in patients. I want to ask..

"Roth Hogan. Filled Obsession with corona viruses. Started back before it was on. Everyone's minds I have been working on Corona viruses for the past twenty years or so that you can be caused in Saas outbreak of two thousand three. I was interested in these viruses. He was interested but not many other people. Were I remember before? Saas Scientific Advisory bought of my institute. Indiana at the time told me to stop working on these unimportant viruses. They thought he was wasting his time. Because twenty years ago Corona virus didn't cause serious problems for humans at that time when you would tool corona virus of humans And the both of them cost only mild forms of common code in humans. The Hilton filled was drawn to Corona viruses. Especially the structure of proteins so he pressed forward and then the whole world started to care from. Npr news this is all things considered. I'm Michelle Norris and I'm Melissa Block in Hong Kong today. Health officials said the number of people suffering from an unusual outbreak of pneumonia. Had nearly doubled since the weekend. The figure now stands at changed readiness sauce emerged at the end of two thousand two and two thousand three and we add the first epidemic of this century. When SARS emerged people were shocked the virus spread from animals to humans and from there infected thousands of people and killed hundreds. There was no treatment. No vaccine in scientists were scrambling. But he'll unveiled was ahead of the curve. He'd been studying the structures of Corona virus proteins for years specifically an enzyme that helps the virus copy itself. Hogan who can fill thought that molecule called a protease could hold the key if he focused there maybe he is slow or even stop the virus so basically you're trying to identify its weeks. Yes that's correct but the SARS outbreak came and win. It was deadly but not very contagious. At least not compared to Kobe. Nineteen and it was much more easily contained in as the dangerous stars fizzled out. So did the money that funds research no Pharma Company the a draft for market of twelve thousand cases. The cannot because it would be a big loss of money so he'll change strategies instead of just focusing on corona viruses. He broadened his research to include enteroviruses a different type of virus that happens to share some similar features. They're responsible for a wider range of human illnesses like hand foot mouth disease and some forms of the flu. And if you have a drug which can fight krona virus and enter a virus. It's the same time or visit same potency then. You have something which pharmaceutical industry should be interested in so he'll can felt set out to find a chemical that could fight lots of different viruses. Chemical Pharmaceutical Company could turn into a drug. That's what he was working on when the new corona virus emerged in Wuhan. Where were you when you heard about this? New Corona virus in China actually. I was in Mozambique Africa because the plant a conference on emerging viruses which I organized every year in Mozambique and be hurt new virus and the analyze our neigh- sequence in you virus in Mozambique and Befallen. This is going to be interesting and we also already. Thoughts is going to be a problem but of course we never imagined magnitude of the problem which is now we never imagined. This could be endemic. But yes I expect it an epidemic who can tell his team already had a molecule that was effective against some viruses. They were close to publish a paper on it. I they wanted to test it on the nuke rotavirus and just to be clear. They wanted to test it in a lab in a petri dish but something unfortunate happened. Before I left for China I gave an interview to small radio station here in Luebeck and reflected the interview correctly more or less on the Internet but they chose as a headline one virus colon. The rescue come from Lubick question and I never saw that and while I was in the plane some Chinese students Living in Luebeck and then Hamburg say translated this poorly into Chinese and they wrote that. I'm traveling to Wuhan to test my compound in patients boy so by the time I lend it in Shanghai this had been clicked already ten million times holy cow well and I was Velka MD as Z hero bringing rescue to China. Oh man which was quite embarrassing and I- I head to hide from the press. The next few days and How did you hide words? Joe Where you hide from ten million people. I hit in the apartment of a friend and I didn't leave this apartment in in four days and the next few days after that I gave interviews as many as I could trying to correct this impression that I'm coming to rescue the patients in Wuhan but it was already too late. The public deemed him a hero with a cure. But anyone who understood the science knew. That couldn't possibly be the case. He was unable to start fresh with local Chinese researchers and he never even made it known. Gourd collaborate with me when I'm announced in the press as hero. Who COMES WITH THE RESCUE? So you were never able to share your your your samples with your ears in. Wuhan China in general. Yes that is true over the last decade. We've seen what the ramifications of misinformation can be. This is Secon Akpan. He's an editor on our science desk. And he's been helping to coordinate our coverage of the corona virus. I haven't seen a good answer for how we stopped. Misinformation from spreading everywhere like a virus even though the Internet is filled with supposed remedies for Kobe. Nineteen some of which are dangerous. The reality is is that a specific treatment doesn't exist yet. Emergency Carrot. Now that's all we have but we don't have as specific treatment for the novel Corona Virus. Right we don't have a vaccine that can prevent it and we don't have you know an antiviral that might stop bit specifically one of the reasons we don't have a treatment yet is because before now not many people have been looking. It's so funny. A Corona viruses. Because I mean they literally 'cause common colds right there probably one of the most prominent infections That we have by. Yeah there isn't. There isn't a whole lot of money that goes into corona virus research. You know compared to you know something. Like influenza definitely compared to something like cancer or diabetes of course. Now that's changing those many people working on Cornell viruses especially now many people jump to that field they do upset work on herpes virus or other viruses and start working on Corona Var assists because the feud obliged to do so all. They feel that there would be more research money in this field in the future. I don't know but there's very few people would do antivirals. Very very few Hogan Phil Says. People are testing drugs to treat other ailments to see if they could be re purposed for covered nineteen. There's very few people starting from scratch building a custom molecule. If you ask for people who prepare antivirals for coronavirus numbers and you restrict it to people who start from scratch makes Omar accused's. It's certainly less than twenty in the world. We can only hope that big Pharma will enter the scene and the put more people.

"It was the nineteen sixties own. Even better decade Stephan Ugo. I woke a two thousand sixteen a team the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease was looking for mosquito borne diseases to help fight epidemics and they found a virus that was infecting mosquitoes in in. Trinidad as we talked about earlier like viruses. You've got a bit of genetic data that's contained in a protein capsule and in most cases all of the data is contained in this protein capsule. But there's a type of virus that they found in these mosquitoes. That's very weird. Because instead of all the information being contained in that one package this virus splits the genome into multiple pieces and then individually wraps them into five unique packages and they call this a multicomponent virus. And so you have these five different packages of Info that get sent out into the world and then in order to infect a new cell. The new cell has to like collect the whole set and like get at least four out of the five of these packages in order to make it work and it's a specific four out of five. The fifth one is Has the amount of gene information in it and it seems like it's optional. For making the virus work. So it's not any four right like the monopoly tokens on McDonald's. You go there you go at least four or five to win the prize which is being infected. Yes and the fifth one is like Baltic Avenue. Exactly this specific virus they found is called Waco Kulik virus or G V and GEICO. I'm sherm saying that terribly. That's the city in Trinidad where they found the mosquitoes and collects or culex genus of mosquitoes. So after sequencing this genome they found that it's part of a group of viruses that are called kingman viruses. And that's named after a virus that they found in a city in China but all of the viruses in that group have these segmented genomes with at least four segments each but g V is the only one that we know of that uses this multicomponent like packaging system. One of the viruses in this group has been found in monkeys so that one can infect non-human primates but with this virus e. V seems to be specific to mosquitoes. So it's not something that we probably have to worry about the piece of information that I've been a little bit like avoiding talking about until now is that this multicomponent packaging strategy is something. That's pretty common in viruses that infect plants and fungi. But it's not something that we found in animals until this twenty sixteen paper. It seems like we don't really know why that is. I mean splitting up the genome and like having to wrap each one and then having to get all four into a cell is like a pretty inefficient way of transmitting data. So it seems like that's a disadvantage to doing it that way but they think that might be an adaptation to some of the differences between plant and Animal. Cells may be having to do with plant cell walls but with this discovery. Now we at least know that it's possible for these kinds of viruses infecting animals as well. That's so cool. I had no idea these things existed. And they're like evil trading cards. It kind of reminds me a little bit of how we use viruses actually for genetic engineering purposes. I don't think it's the exact same because this is different. Part of virus particles that have different components of the genetic material. Ray But when when you use viruses for genetic engineering purposes which people like to do. Because they're really great at integrating DNA into other cells. You also want to be safe because you're dealing with viruses and one way that people have engineered safety until this process is by taking the different pieces of viral DNA and putting them on different parts of DNA that you can store separately until you actually need them to make your virus so you only mix them together like when you're actually getting ready to make your virus particle so they're kind of like a multicomponent system that only get mixed the end to make that fire final virus. I was like stuffing I so that I can built my confidence to do my fact now. His factor so good and mine is also vaguely related. Which is weird. There are lots of different kinds of irises. But the one I wanNA talk about is half of an unlikely Dream Team a parasitic wasp and a poly DNA virus so different species of parasitic wasps have different polity viruses specific to them and not all of them. Have this partnership going on. But the general symbiotic relationship between them is the same. The parasitic wasp wants to lay its eggs in a caterpillar so that they can hatch and eat the caterpillar flesh because tasty we and caterpillars have immune systems to protect us from invaders so the polly DNA viruses basically act as the wasp's Venom and get injected into the Caterpillar to compromise the immune system so that the wasp eggs can survive and grow which is what the packages made me think of. It's like here have some virus and then also my eggs and the polly. Dna virus as much as a virus can want anything like wants to make more of itself. Normally it would need a host because all viruses need hosts but particularly needs these parasitic wasps. Because it doesn't have the genetic material to do it without them so pro viruses get passed down from generation to generation of Wasp just because they're incorporated in their genome and the viruses only created an Calix cells in the reproductive tract of female wasps because the viruses don't have the genetic material for replication themselves. And so they don't proliferate on their own in the Caterpillar. They need the wasp to make more of themselves. So basically polly. Dna viruses are really weird because they mess up the definition of virus even more because it's in the middle ground of having everything replication except for their host and remnant virus ingrained into our DNA. It's like ingrained into something else as DNA and when the wasp was like time to lay eggs than their viruses wide is that considered a virus at all. I think it's considered a virus because the genetic sequence that it's from was originally from a virus that we think infected the wasp and it acts like a virus in that it replicates at the pieces of virus which is genetic material surrounded by protein and in the Caterpillar it. It's like a distraction to the immune system because the Caterpillar's immune system is like a virus and then starts dealing with that without realizing is bigger problem. Which is egg. That is the hatch. So we have multi part viruses to collect the right group.
