China's Sinovac coronavirus vaccine 78% effective in Brazil trials
"The world are betting on a vaccine from China to help them stop the coronavirus. On Sunday, for example, Brazil gave emergency use authorization. This vaccine made by the Chinese pharmaceutical companies sign of AC Countries are embracing the Chinese vaccine, despite conflicting reports about how well it works. NPR health correspondent Maria Godoy reports nearly two weeks ago, researchers running a late stage trial for sign of X vaccine in Brazil announced it was 78% effective against Cove it which sounds pretty good. But then last week, they revised those numbers, saying the vaccine prevented disease on Lee about 50% of the time. So what's the truth? Natalie Dina, Bio statistician at the University of Florida, says it all depends on how you define efficacy. So when we talk about vaccine efficacy, often we think about a single number. But actually there are a lot of different types of efficacy. And you could think about it as a spectrum. Dean says vaccines typically work best to preventing severe disease. That's what the Brazil trial found 78% of the time the sign of act vaccine protected people against moderate or severe disease. Or even mild disease that needed some medical assistance. But when the researchers included what they called very mild symptoms that needed no medical attention. The vaccine's effectiveness dropped to 50% as we can to include milder and milder cases. It's natural to see a bit of a drop in vaccine advocacy sign of AC is conducting trials in various countries and they haven't released much of the data. John More vaccine researcher with Weill Cornell Medicine, says that's made it hard for outside scientists to know exactly what's going on. It's signed by press release, the Chinese are being well, characteristically less left and transparent. Even so, from the data that is available, more says it's clear that the son of that vaccine is less effective than those from a journal and five Her those vaccines on the whole protect against disease around 95% of the time. More says That's not surprising because previous data had showed that the vaccines from Adana and Fizer Both of which used a new technology called Emma Rene triggered a stronger immune response. Then the sign of act vaccine most people in the field believes that the antibody responses to correlate of protection on the you know the strength of the antibody Responses matters. Natalie Dean says the less effective of vaccine is a preventing disease, the harder it is to pinpoint its efficacy. When the vaccine is closer to 50 60%. That range of uncertainty can be a lot bigger. That may help explain another head scratcher. Different clinical trials in different countries have reported starkly different efficacy rates for the sign of a vaccine. From 50% of Brazil to 65% and Indonesia to a stunning 91% in a smaller study in Turkey, You need a lot more data to distinguish between different levels of advocacy, so it might also just be kind of statistical noise to a degree. But even if the sign of X vaccine is only around 50% protective That's still substantial. It's better than the flu vaccine some years, and it does meet the minimum threshold for emergency use authorization set by the World Health Organization. That's not nothing. It's much better than last thing. Dr. Denise Scared, is an epidemiologist with the Save in Vaccine Institute in Washington, D. C. She says the data show the sign of X vaccine protects against severe cases of Covic. And that could have a big impact in places like her native Brazil. They healthcare in Brazil is about to collapse in many cities. The situation's very critical and having a vaccine that will prevent people from being hospitalized. That will be I'll be a great impact for us. Maria Godoy NPR news
China Bars Entry to 2 Members of W.H.O. Team Investigating Covid in Wuhan
"Scientific investigators from the World Health Organization have finally been given permission by the Chinese government to search for the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus. Here's Jim Rupe. It was last week that wh o Director general, Dr Ted Rose and not Gabriel ASIS expressed his frustration at China for reversing his permission for investigators to hit the ground in Wuhan. I'm very disappointed with this news, given that two members had already begun their journeys and others were not able to travel at the last minute. But Thursday after a call from Dr Ted Rose, Chinese officials granted permission for the team to enter Wuhan. Life in Wuhan, we're told is relatively back to normal, the north of the country. There is a resurgence of the virus. China has assisted for months that just because Wuhan is where the first cluster of cases were discovered, does not necessarily mean Wuhan is ground zero for the outbreak. The suspicion is by scientists, however. That the virus that has killed nearly two million people worldwide at this point since 2019 jump from a bad to an animal to human somewhere in the country, Southwest Chinese officials maintain the virus most likely came from abroad, perhaps an infected seafood. Tho. Scientists reject that. The team includes scientists and virus experts from the US, the UK, Australia, Germany, Japan, Russia, the Netherlands, guitar and Vietnam, all anxious to get their hands microscopes, probes and Petri dishes in defining the root cause the host animal, the animal that caught the virus from the bed and, in turn infected the human And where that happened.

WHO team arrives in Wuhan to investigate pandemic origins
"There's an international team of researchers from the world health organization who arrived just yesterday. They are in wuhan to investigate the origins of the pandemic. The david tell us what we need to know about the investigation. What exactly are they looking for at this point in the pandemic listeners can be forgiven for thinking one. Oth- is this investigation turning a year off to the pandemic began in wuhan and the answer is politics. The answer is that china is spreading a story which it is spreading with incredible force and assertiveness that it is grotesque to say that china is to blame for covid that it made it even begun in wuhan that maybe it was first spotted a mojang because chinese scientists are unusually diligent but we have seen very senior chinese officials. Just kind of throwing out Random theories about where this. Boris may have begun whether it was india or italy or the uk or the american military. Maybe brought it in or maybe it began in several places simultaneously. Which was the line from the chinese foreign minister of the year. Anything rather than it that actually at the beginning of this for a month maybe two months there was a cover up by calmness officials who didn't want to admit that they had a new virus on their hands in wuhan. So now you have this team. From the world health organization it was supposed to be fifteen is now any thirteen because two of them were stopped in singapore because they had autism their blood when they were tested. Then i'll even on the ground there in quarantine now for two more weeks. There are no promises on the chinese side that they will get to talk to the chinese doctors. Some of whom certainly know about that. Cover up because they were that trying to get information out and were punished. Getting out so really. I'm afraid this investigation is anything. But the real independent scientific probe into whether this deadly disease began on how to prevent another one taking place. It isn't entirely political. Very controlled exercise grudgingly allowed onto the ground in a very limited way by chinese government determined to say that covered is actually a triumph for the chinese communist party. Because they've control the virus now within china's closed

We support the WHO. That being said the WHO isn't organization that has had problems. We saw this really come to the fore after the Ebola outbreak, in West, Africa Twenty, thirteen, twenty fourteen, and we know that the WHO is susceptible to political influence is member states when it comes to this corona virus, one of the. Issues that we have had with the WHO is hesitancy to declare a public health emergency of international concern as well as its recognition that this was a pandemic staining for some period of time that this was something that could be contained when the field realized that as a respiratory virus that's spreading efficiently from person to person. This was not going to be something containable. There also were concerns about the treatment of China, specifically the fact that China's draconian methods its suppression of free speech. It's expulsion of journalists from the Washington Post from New York Times and the Wall Street Journal basically went without any kind of criticism. One of the early people who warned the world about this outbreak in China. An ophthalmologist who has since died from covid nineteen was prosecuted by the Chinese government. That's not the way you deal with the pandemic. It would have been important for the WHO to call out these actions of China. That, being said, the fact is that the United States has made its own mistakes with this outbreak, and we can't blame the WHO's failures for what the United States has has done during this outbreak, so we can't deflect blame from ourselves air, but there is an opportunity for the WHO reform to get better into be less susceptible to political influence, and also to start to include Taiwan in a road health assembly, and in the World Health Organization I want is one of the exemplary states that have done an excellent job with curtailing this coronavirus pandemic yet they are not a member. Member of the WHO because of political pressure to placate China dumps are taking a step back institutionally. What is WHO's main specific contribution to mitigating covert? What is real mandate as research data collection beyond the global discussion? Why is it so relevant? The WTO is so relevant because it is a group of technical experts that can help countries developed response plans to this corona virus, they with data collection. They can help with response systems. They can help with preparing countries to be able to deal with this virus in serve a coordinating function in the globe to try in a line. To contain the virus answering the first question, you mentioned the importance of reforming the WHO let me ask you to double barrel questions if I might want it. Is there a pro China bias in the WHO and specifically approach, China, by by its present director, general as some in the US, have claimed that's the first question and I'm GonNa follow that up with what specific reforms should the WTO undergo to reduce any bias whether it's pro China or other biases so? So I'm not a WHO insider, so I can actually say whether or not there's a pro China bias among its directorgeneral among its its actions. I, do know that anytime. If there is an epidemic infectious disease, they're often his political pressure to not declare a public health emergency of international concern and to try and placate member states who may be affected by this outbreak in i. think that's something that's always hampered the WHO's ability to be impartial observer or impartial? Participant and outbreak response when it comes to what what do I think they could do to reform insulate themselves from political pressure I think it's going to be very hard. The WHO is United Nations agency in the United Nations? Itself is acceptable to those same political pressures. The WHO as A one simple thing we can do it since who is an agency that is tasked with protecting the public's health is to allow all countries to participate to allow Taiwan to be a member of the WHO irrespective of their UN membership, irrespective of what China may think or if it offends. Because Republic. Healthy shouldn't be borders here. We really need to learn from everybody. We need to have situational awareness of every country. That's one simple thing that the WHO could do in order to enhance public health, but honestly that's chances of that. Happening are pretty small, given the importance growing importance of China's a contributor to W. H.. O. Right, China does contribute information, but the question boils down to argue for public health or you not for public health, and if you are for public health, you want all countries to be able to participate in freely. Exchange ideas in you don't want to. To have countries banned from the world. Health Assembly not because they did something wrong. What? What is Taiwan done wrong in this response? I don't want to argue I'm completely with you on the substance I'm just trying to be a realist. Ask Myself. Is that reform really going to happen? Or are there other reforms? The W. H. O. ought to be thinking of her. country's together ought to be pushing the organization to undertake. There are ways is a whol, became independent funding of member states that may be one way to to think about this happening, but in our big global health. NGOs now that are available to donate money, so you kind of see groups I could imagine groups like the Gates Foundation, putting money into the whol to relieve the WHO of the pressure, placate member states, but I think it's going to be very hard. Because the WHO is a is ultimately going to end up. Being victim to politics, like everything is when it comes to global diplomacy. Let's move and talk a little bit about the covert vaccine. Do you see the vaccine race now and geopolitics playing in this with the the race? Race for the vaccine would say that Leah Aren't making rapid progress with the corona virus vaccine is a virus. It hadn't even been characterized as of December of twenty nineteen. And now we're in phase one phase, two clinical trials all around the world and what we're seeing. Is that going to have multiple candidates progressing and whoever makes the first vaccine that's that's viable likely will vaccinate their own country I even if that's not the best public health measure, we've seen that happen for example during two thousand nine h one n one. One winning Australia developed the first pandemic vaccine in did not export the vaccine until they vaccinated their own country first. So that's likely to happen, so there are going to be countries that are locked out because they aren't a place where the vaccine is being manufactured, admitting this is going to be just a simple fact that that's that's going to happen. Should there be a a an investigation into the animal origins probe, and and what to do about wet markets in the future I noticed that there was a front page article. Article Remember, was in the Washington Buzz of the New York Times about wet Parkinson China. Where do you see the issue of how this? The animal origins of this virus and Howard Howard jumped species in part because of the proximity between humans I do think it's important to understand the ultimate origin of this corona virus. We know that it likely jumped from bats to some intermediate animal then to humans. We want to know what that intermediate animal is because it's likely out there in does pose a risk of other corona viruses. From that animal into human species, so that may involve the wet market that me involved more and more studies of different animals that people have in contact with especially the early cases that we now know occurred at least as early as mid November in China and I do think it is something that's important task into an investigation that needs to be completed so that we can understand the origin of this pandemic. We're going to face more pandemics in the future in it is really important. We understand what factors in the human animal interface facilitate the introduction of these. These novel viruses into humans. That's a little bit of politics. The Atlantic published a piece recently on the geopolitical second way, which goes beyond the health challenges into mass migration from developing countries, causing border issues, state defaults in economies, literally crashing the continuing rise that this could motivate of crabs, the end of democracy and freedom in many regions of the world, and this was playing out with a US vacuum. We are kind of tired of hearing about the political consequences we would like to have you tackle.

"Their desire to not have their sovereign Over and I think that that sort of the Achilles heel in the trump administration's desire to have a strong. Who because it wants it to be strong other countries but not necessarily strong against the United States? So which would be good for the goose. Shouldn't be good for the Gander or vice versa. Indeed and I guess the way I describe it is that debate show has in a sense being set up for failure. It's asked to a huge amount. It's budget is relatively small. It has authorities on paper but can't actually deliver on them so either. We have to be honest that it's always going to be flawed and always going to be beholden to whether or not it's member states actually follow through on their commitments. Were willing to. We really would have to empower it to and begin to accept some of its authority. But you know the complaints about though Kowtowing to China. It they have some merit. Because you know why couldn't tedious give take sort of grew Harlem Brundtland a little bit? Harsher stance torch China. Now China has gotten more powerful in the interim. So maybe that's the reason but if there is kowtowing going on I guess I would say sometimes that simply bowing to reality giving the symmetry in power between the organization and the member states that ultimately hold the whip hand. It's really no contest Stewart. I want close picking up that thread that point. You made that the. Who is asked to do a lot in given too little to accomplish it? And I WANNA ask in terms of the issue of vaccines. Obviously we're all talking about how the pandemic is really not gonNA come under control until we get a vaccine. There's some optimism that we can a produce vaccine be produced vaccine on what is an incredibly short time line. Maybe as little as eighteen months. Put this a reality. That's underlying all of this. Which is even if a vaccine is developed. It is GONNA be in short supply initially and then the question is what obligations does a country company have to see that any vaccine that is produced is widely available with the. Who have a role in deciding? How vaccines are distributed. It would only have a bully. Pulpit role is my understanding the stage right now. There is no existing multilateral mechanism to ensure the joint developments and distribution along public health lines equitable distribution of lifesaving vaccines mechanisms. Obviously there is sort of a an arms race you could describe it as almost to develop vaccines. There are dozens of efforts going on around the world. Interestingly given how globalized medical researches there's no guarantee that this would happen in the United States or even in a country that would be considered a natural ally or partner of the United States. So there's a lot of uncertainty out there. There's financial uncertainty. How how are you going to get companies? Who are doing this. They need to have some predictable revenue streams right and so the question is how are they gonna get those revenue streams particularly win in public health emergencies? A lot of countries can actually do what's called as they did in the HIV AIDS case Institute compulsory licensing which basically says look. We're just gonNA copy these things regardless of intellectual property. How do with that is also questions of indemnity for reliability? What if these things actually go to market really quickly? But then what happens if if there are a major side effects? And then there's what about regulatory certainty? So there's a whole lot of uncertainty there with those issues but the big issue as you point out is what are the chances of this is gonna be equitably shared. Because won't temptation be as the French would say so? Keep put you save yourself if you can right. So you prioritize your own populations. You put export controls on these things and there's already a lot of indication that that is the win. Number of countries will go. It was reported not sure whether or not to how how much it's been corroborated afterwards but it was reported that that the trump administration that the president had attempted to secure unilateral access for the United States to a promising vaccine being developed or potential vaccines being developed by a German company which exercise the Germans. Quite a bit as you can imagine but it certainly has been the pattern. It certainly was during the Obama Administration during the Previous pandemic h one. That basically there was an effort to initially to say. Hey we're gonNA share vaccines but when it turned out there wasn't there wasn't enough excedence. Anna moved to prioritize it to the American people so it is a huge issue now. The European Union recently has developed a program called access to covid nineteen tools or act. And it's called the active celebrator in the idea. Here is the it's you'd have rapid development and equitable deployment of any vaccines therapeutics. That actually emerged the big problem in. Its if you believe in equity. That's a really really good effort in and the WHO is involved in it providing technical expertise but it is not the sort of prime mover behind it. The difficulty is that neither the United States nor China or India who all have major pharmaceutical industries have agreed to join that to date the president's decision to upset the United States from that was particularly conspicuous in so in this arms race. You've got some folks moving forward very quickly. On sort of a nationalist basis and the ultimate terms are going to be really really unknown. And then you have other folks who are moving forward on in innocence a more cosmopolitan direction. Where I guess by that. I mean that's presumably. There's going to be major moves if this payout from this in terms of a vaccine or or therapeutic treatments there's going to be an effort to try to ensure that these get to some of the neediest areas craps the hardest hit areas but that are somehow distributed along.

"It has to be said that since the novel coronavirus first appeared in China his become a significant political football in geopolitical rivalry between the United States and China the United States has rightly criticized China for being less than transparent with echoes of the SARS experience less than transparent in terms of actually admitting that there was a problem resisting any indication that this would be transmissible between people at times in sort of quasi authorized way fanning the flames of misinformation including the notion that somehow the US army was responsible for the COVID. Nineteen outbreak again. A lot of vitriol coming from the Chinese side from the American side huge amounts of criticism for China's lack of transparency but then also a lot of frustration with the World Health Organization particularly in the early experience of Covid. Nineteen so for instance. There's a lot of pointing to a tweet at the. Who sent out on January fourteenth saying basically repeating China's line that there was no apparent case a person to person transmission and then later on in the month some quite gushing commentary from the Director General of the World Health Organization address. Gabriel's basically saying that literally. It's no exaggeration that China's setting that model standard for pandemic response and that was obviously in fact. A gross exaggeration given the lack of transparency. On the part of the Chinese that being said the letter that Mr Trump sent to other members basic members of the World Health Organization and he senate right at the beginning of the annual session the opening of the World Health Assembly which is basically the Assembly member states which he chose not to speak to right. Exactly what you chose not to speak to and could have since it was involved a number of heads of state and heads of government including present sheet. I guess I would describe it as a mixture of truths of half truths and of outright mistaken statements. There were a number of the most probably must've regis of the faulty statements. Was this sort of statement that the British Medical Journal. The Lancet had actually published accounts of current ivars outbreak in December in China which landed had. No they didn't even mention the coronavirus until an article. In late January. The letter was while to some degree embodied international broader international frustration with China. As you suggest I think it backfired a bit because it appeared to this threat of basically eliminating US funding permanently from the organization and maybe using funds outside of the organization garnered a lot of criticism. Not just as you might expect from China and Russia for instance but but also from the European Union basically saying that this was not the time to take the dewitt show to task transcends declare war on the on the WHO to order to leave it in the middle of a pandemic. The one thing that the president's letter did arguably accomplished in the in the in the White House has been touting this is that there was an agreement to launch an impartial independent review of the W as performance from initial outbreak. I do have to say that that impartial review. There is a precedent for that during the Ebola west African outbreak where the WTO came under a lot of criticism for not declaring a public emergency of international concern until quite late and then sort of watching the early response. There was also an interim assessment of an independent interim assessment of the debut performance. So in a sense this is following that model but I do think that Having looked at the respective timelines of the trump administration's response to cope nineteen and the response of the World Health Organization. I would have to say that. I'm more impressed with the seriousness. Certainly by late January with which the World Health Organization took the emerging pandemic then. I am of the seriousness. With which the trump administration took the emerging pandemic particularly during those sort of sex or seven critical weeks in February and and into early March during which it was clear that a pandemic was spreading. Well let me show you out on that student if I may just because you've worked in government you understand how government works. Obviously the Chinese had by the end of December announced this corona virus again the president's critique of the. Who is that? It was slowing getting news? Out was to favorite bull to China for from your experience working in government. To what extent do you think the? Us government relies on the word of the WHO on these matters versus other sources. It has for information. Why would have to say that the W chose guidance and alerts would be one important input but frankly speaking you know the the there would always be trust but verify aspect of things and in this case the United States had a number of different sources? First of all at the time of the COVID. Nineteen outbreak right around the turn of the year even though a number of US officials from the HHS health and human services including the Centers for Disease Control and the Food Drug Administration. A number of those had been removed already from China. Partly for budgetary reasons. There were people on the ground including John. It's actually were sending back information and alerts to their home agencies. In addition to that of course we have a boffin shadowy but quite extensive intelligence community and the public reports of what the intelligence community was aware of during that time suggests that the trump administration at the highest levels should not have been taken by surprise by the fact that there was something that looked like it had pandemic potential and in fact that the administration was getting many of those reports. There may have been something going on internally within the I think one of the big disconnects was the sort of public messaging and communication to the American people and of course governors and others in states as to how to begin to prepare for a public health emergency and it took quite a while weeks before the president actually went ahead and declared that you know. Who let's say it wasn't perfect but when we look around the world and we see significance a lot of heterogeneity allow a lot of diversity in how countries have done in responding to this and presumably they all had at least some level of similar information. But which you find are the countries that have done well in the United States is not the only one that has not done particularly well but those that did for instance South Korea. It did a couple of things. In addition to having some social distancing which of course became big in the United States? It very quickly had a surveillance and testing and tracing system up and running. It was sort of dramatic and a lot of just had to do with sort of shoe leather of people sort of tracking down potential people might be carriers or have become infected with the fact that that got started so much later in the United States is one reason why as in Italy as in the United Kingdom one reason why we saw a large outbreak of coronavirus at least certain portions of our country. Let's talk a little bit about the consequences of the president's announcements on the WHO Stewart. I sort of feel like. We're now in a debate. Which is pitting two groups of people those who say Knicks? It don't fix it versus those who arguing mend it. Don't end it. Let's talk about the trump administration's position has the trump administration sketched would do as an alternative. Who were is the administration's message mainly we won't do anything. There are a couple of ideas that have come out from the trump administration also from some outsiders someone allied and supportive with President. One of the ideas that has been bandied about is of creating some sort of an entity that would exist outside of the WHO would ideally be more nimble and be less beholden to China. The difficulty of course is is when you try to consider sort of international work around whether it's sort of club form of governance call it the health twenty rather than the Group of twenty the difficulties trying to avoid having those same dynamics and political and geopolitical competition it has already hamstrung your existing organizations which has certainly been the case. I I should just mention that. One of the biggest disappointments in addition to the W. H. O. In this entire episode has been the failure of sort of apex forums of multilateral cooperation Intergovernmental Corporation like the Group of twenty like the Group of seven like the UN Security Council it. Lets you put it on? Seems to be every country for itself. Exactly what you have is what you really have had in all three of those and it's the US China Rivalry is not the only reason why those forums had largely been missing in action. But it hasn't been a major reason in late March. A major meeting of g seven foreign ministers basically collapsed on the basis of an SS G. Seven this is. These are Western countries them in advance market democracies the ones a basic collapsed because there was disagreement between the United States and the other members to whether or not there should be explicit mention of the Wuhan Corona virus as opposed to simply cope at nineteen in the final communique when it comes to the UN Security Council there. It's basically it was China. China had the rotating presidency also in March and it would not call a meeting of the UN Security Council on the grounds that this was not a security matter but a public health matter that ignores of course that in the past not least in Bulla there have been UN Security Council meetings on a global pandemic but the reason was that the Chinese were afraid of exposure and embarrassment over their poor performance at the beginning of thanks so it has had consequences now in terms of potential fixes to the World Health Organization. There have been a number of different proposals one of them that Number folks feel like the. Who has lost? Its way is you know the. Who needs to get back to basics? And this is a the Wall Street. Journal had a strong editorial on this separate Rico basically it said the WTO lost its way because it got away from simply dealing with pandemics and it got involved in all sorts of somewhat obscure diseases and also got involved in broader attitudes of system strengthening which I mentioned before trying to improve the quality of health care in many of these countries or tried to be in favor of universal healthcare universal access to healthcare. So that is one idea that has been bandied about another one that the trump administration has talked about is. Let's improve the power of the World Health Organization to be able to hold member-states feet to the fire. They need to be able to name and shame. And they point to the example of grew Harlem Brundtland. Who is the head of the? Who DURING THE SARS epidemic win? She basically called out the Chinese government at the time for not being transparent enough and they say we need to be able to have a wgn. That can actually do that. Stewart. Can I ask you up that is? I'm just trying to imagine how a system like that would work if the WHO were to criticize US policy. I mean you know well from have written a book about the reluctance of many Americans sign onto multilateral arrangements in agreements is because they don't want to let outside forces supra-national bodies have a say over. What the United States can or should do. That's precisely the point really. I think that that dilemma. You put your finger on it. The United States and the trump administration has basically said that the. Who needs to be able to call out recalcitrant governments yet? You call them out on the carpet. The difficulty of course is that that could conceivably work in a couple of different ways right it should rebound directly right on the United States and I think this points to a bigger problem of how member states treat the. Who THERE COUPLE PROBLEMS? One of them is we. The international community has loaded up on the. Who An increasing number of things that it's supposed to be doing without necessarily much increasing the budget or for while keeping it flatlined but the other thing is that we've said look at needs to be able to hold governments to account because otherwise global health securities endangered. So he needs to be able to really get in there. And you don't have strong surveillance and be able to rely on non official sources of information as to what's going on. The problem is that the countries of the world and particularly the strongest countries. That were not only or torn between their desire to have an effective international organization that can actually deliver the global good of global health security and.

Let's all do our part because we're all Hashtag alone together. Brought to you by the Ad Council. Welcome back the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak. It wasn't just the. Who China working really hard. And I think they're doing a very good job there intact with world the world our world organization the also in early February president trump was saying that China was doing a great job there Extremely capable and I think President Xi is extremely capable and. I hope that it's going to be resolved again but by March president trump's rhetoric shifted. But we want to look into World Health Organization because they really are They called it wrong. They call it wrong really. By this point. Coronavirus cases were spiking in the US and criticism of the administration building. Medical professionals were pointing to delays in testing and getting protective equipment to health workers and increasingly win. The president and other administration officials were asked about these issues. They pointed the finger at two parties. The president began making the case publicly that China and the World Health Organization didn't do enough to stop the spread to the United States in the first place. Our colleague Andrew covers the White House. He said China hadn't done enough. Had Withholding Information and the World Health Organization by extension have been doing the same thing and sort of deferring to China too much and not questioning their version of events. They seem to be very China. Centric that's a nice way of saying it. But they seem to be very China centric and they received were always on the side of China. And we funded you know so I want to look into it yes? In April that shift in rhetoric became a policy shift trump announced the US would freeze its funding to the WHO while his administration looked into the organizations quote. Mismanagement of the coronavirus response and on Monday trump said that investigation was finished and he tweeted a letter to Dr. Ted Rose detailing administration's findings. Here's betsy the gist of his criticism. Is that the. Who basically ignored reports in December of an emerging pneumonia an emerging new disease and then didn't do enough in those critical early weeks in December and early January to pressure China to come clean about what was going on what this new virus was and what was happening with it. Responding aggressively in the first few weeks is very critical as we have sadly seen and so. That's the gist of his criticism. That the WHO did not pressure China enough and that it in fact accepted what China was itself reporting for example. The letter points to a WHO tweet. That repeated a claim. China's making it mid January that there was no clear evidence of human to human transmission. Human-to-human transmission is really the whole ballgame. Right I mean if this wasn't transmitted from person to person you know we wouldn't be in the situation to begin with right. I mean we wouldn't be wearing masks. The virus wouldn't have spread across more than one hundred almost two hundred countries now. So the the President's point here is if the. Us was warned if foul countries are warned that this was transmitting among humans earlier than maybe they could have done more the WHO did say in a press conference. The same day tweeted China's claim that human to human transmission was possible. Trump was raising some of the same issues that health officials had raised back in January and February but his prescription about what to do about it. Alarmed public health experts in his letter. Monday trump warned that if the WHO didn't make unspecified changes the US would permanently cut off payments to the organization payments make up about fifteen percent of the WHO's entire budget and the US might even pull out of the H. altogether in a statement this week the. Who said it had received? The president's letter was considering it. This letter landed at the W. H. O. On a pretty big day for the organization when it's one hundred and ninety four members come together for a big annual meeting the world health. Assembly would've eating you actually member countries dialed in to discuss the pandemic and they're another major global player made a move. That was pretty much. The Opposite of trump's Xi Jinping is one of the first people to speak Shuzo basins and guns and he gets up and he makes up pretty impassioned plea for continued funding for the WHO and four major countries contributing a amount to the broader pandemic and then he announced this two billion dollar contribution was not specifically to the. Who but it's it's to the broader fight for the SAKE OF BOOSTING INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION AGAINST COORDINATING. I like to announce the following China will provide two billion. Us dollars over two years to help with coordinating with Moose. The same day that the president of the United States was threatening to pull funding. China was pledging. Two billion dollars to the coronavirus fight worldwide. It's a huge contribution and really more than that. It's symbolic because it's China standing up and saying we're GONNA take a global leadership role in this fight. It's interesting because one of president trump's concerns seems to be that China has too much influence over the. Who but by pulling the W funding? Couldn't he be creating an opening? China to have more influence. Yeah I think he's actually given China and opportunity here to exert influence and power. This is China's or stepping into the void left by the United States which is at the same time threatening to pull out of the World Health Organization altogether. This is China saying we're going to step up and fill that void soon. Why would trump do it? I think there's reasons why he's doing it. I mean I. T's been entirely skeptical of broad international organizations for the duration of his presidency from the United Nations to NATO. This is sort of an extension of that too. I think you know. At least his critics would say that. He's trying to deflect blame from what's happening. In the United States. He has come under deep deep deep criticism from lawmakers and public health officials. The skips him an opportunity to sort of say. You know. This isn't my fault. This goes back months to China and the World Health Organization. The White House says that the US not retreating from its global leadership role and White House spokesman called Beijing's two billion dollar. Pledge a distraction from China's own krona virus response but President Trump's letter puts the. Who in a tough spot? This Wednesday the organization said that it is one point three billion dollars short of what it needs to fight the pandemic through the end of the year. That number is so large in part because it can't count on contributions from the US but if the US does pull back from the W. H. O. The loss will go deeper than just money. It would also lose a major player. We have a lot a ton of expertise here. I mean life saving medications. Vaccines are developed by. Us companies by the NIH the CDC has the world's leading public health experts and so not having a cooperative relationship with the the US is incredibly damaging to global health efforts generally anti who You sort of start to devolve into a world of everybody doing their own thing. It's incredible that the mission that the. Who was set up to help solve and prevent or situations like the one that we're in right now with pandemic and this also happens to be the moment that the very foundation of the organization is frame. It is an irony you know. It's both a cause and effect. These battles start to emerge as things go badly. It shows the stress and the tragedy that everybody is encountering.

President Trump said the world health organization floundered in its early responses to the corona virus outbreak. According to The New York Times trump's letter also contained falsehoods and misleading statements. He wrote that the. Who consistently ignored credible reports of the virus spreading in Wuhan in early December twenty nineteen or even earlier including reports from the Lancet Medical Journal? But in a statement Tuesday morning the lead set pointed out that the Journal published no report in December twenty nineteen referring to a virus or outbreak. In Wuhan or anywhere else in China the Journal said its first reports about the virus were published on January twenty fourth four days before the. Who declared an international emergency in the letter? The president said the World Health Organization was responsible for many deaths because it failed to challenge the version of events from President. Gee Paying of China regarding the origin of the virus and its initial spread in the New York Times reports that criticism from Mr Trump was particularly ironic given his own similar comments about China early in the pandemic when he was trying to complete negotiations on the trade deal with the country.

Trump's letter this is the Lesser Lawrence and Econo- help but wonder whether it was written When president trump woke up on Monday morning and saw president she giving the address to the Assembly the first address for a major world leader during that perhaps the most important meeting in its history and you pointed out some of the issues with this letter right at the end there. What president trump says is that if the well who World Health Organization does not commit a major substantive improvements within the next thirty days. I will make my temporary freeze of United States funding or the World Health Organization permanent. But that's whether the stops it doesn't tell you what those improvements though substantive improvements are supposed to be so. Where does that leave us? Allies like Britain like France like Germany like Australia which was pushing for an independent investigation into how China and the early days of the corona virus. Because if the United States just pulls out of the World Health Organization Water Nativities. There seems what it's just. It's very very unlikely that. Us allies around the world are going to follow president trump out so effectively. What the President has done is complain about Chinese. He thinks dominance of the World Health Organization and because of that pull back from the World Health Organization which basically allows China and Chinese Communist Party to dominate that organization even more a Docu Jar. What is your reading of the World Health Organization's role in this situation? And what would it mean for the United States to withhold funding? And of course there's no such thing as permanent. Donald trump is only president until January twentieth. And possibly beyond that. We don't know but Congress has a role here too and so this is. This is at most a temporary withholding of that funding Laura. Thanks for having me. On first of all I think the idea of holding funding from the most consequential global off agency in the middle of the most important pandemic as century strikes. Me As incredibly unwise. Not just for the world but also specifically the United States. A much of the world relies on. Who's expertise and guidance to fight disease outbreaks like the Corona virus outbreak delay? Joe's running the largest clinical trial of medicines in the world the solidarity trial And the idea that we're going to walk away from that would leave. Us looking weak. I think others would step in with the funding and really would be incredibly damaging to the entire global effort. I think this is. This is pretty unwise for the president to be threatening to do this and even worse if he actually follow through and Wendy Sherman the China pledges a two billion dollars to the World Health Organization a larger amount than we've ever contributed to the World Health Organization at the same time the Donald Trump says. He wants to pull back The about five hundred million dollars that the United States has contributed indeed. I think my colleagues this evening had exactly right. Donald trump is handing the world over to China national security interests. This is all about to flat Donald Trump has mishandled the corona virus. Here in the United States Professor Jaws exactly right Indeed who is made up of one hundred ninety four members.

P. B. or ice and then processed and eventually released with a notice to appear it would be longer than fourteen days we we are trying to get our foreign national programs back online before the business comes back online we're trying to bring foreign nationals into our country as soon as possible this is a problem because if you watch what's going on over in Hong Kong and Taiwan you're seeing that they open things back up and they have to travel well people were traveling around the world and they came back home what happened they're now starting to have symptoms again the virus is going up and it looks like they're going into another phase if we open up our country it looks like we won't be opening up our borders well except for our southern border will leave that wide open but it won't looks like we won't be opening up our borders anytime soon we won't be flying any place any time soon because that seems to be the next problem we can isolated here and we can stop but the virus knows no border and if anybody is traveling and coming in from a place where there is the virus then we re introduce it into society and we're facing the same kind of locked down it looks like parts of China Hong Kong Taiwan may be going back into locked down there at least talking about it at this point because of the travel restrictions that have been release and not the travel restrictions of going to work but the cross border travel restrictions that apparently is the problem all right let's take a quick break let me tell you about our sponsor this half hour it is Norton as you know Norton is the top name.

"It from NPR and WB you are. I'm Peter Odell. I'm Robin Young. It's here now. The Dow plunged more than a thousand points at opening today over fears of the global spread of cove in nineteen. The disease caused by the new corona virus. South Korea's president called it's new cases two hundred thirty one today. Unprecedented and powerful the total. There is eight hundred thirty three in Italy. There are one hundred and forty two cases also today the World Health Organization the W. H. O. Held a press conference Dr Michael Ryan Executive Director of the W. H. Emergency Program said the spread of Cova. Nineteen is not a pandemic but also said the world isn't ready for a pandemic were strolled. Still trying to avoid that reality avoid that eventuality he said. What does that mean? Let's bring back? Larry Gordon a professor of Global Health Law at Georgetown and director of the. Who's Center on Global Health? Larry Professor Start with that statement. It's not a pandemic yet Many people may not even know what a pandemic is. So what does that statement mean? I mean it's it's actually quite meaningless in the same statement. Mike Ryan said that we have to foresee that we're not going to be able to contain this very easily or if not at all whether you define it as a pandemic is just a form of terminology. Who doesn't even have power to declare a pandemic. The key here is is that there are appearing to be sustained community transmissions in Asia in Europe and also in Iran. We're on the precipice of a major Spread globally. You're saying kind of. Forget that word because why we should be concerned anyway. Regardless of us we should be concerned. Anyway you know whether it meets the threshold of a pandemic or not it would not surprise me if it were an all out pandemic fairly soon but remember. We shouldn't panic because pandemics can affect different places in different ways. The United States is highly capable our state and local health departments the US CDC is literally the best in the world. It is possible for us to contain it and also remember. It's not a highly fatal disease. We shouldn't overreact when we spoke to you in early February. You were a voice warning against those massive quarantines. You said they don't work. We watched as people were quarantined on ships. It didn't work. What are some other things? You're observing that you think can be doing. Let's be proactive. Sure but let me just comment because you so right. We're seeing this. These outbreaks in hospitals prisons nursing homes churches anywhere that people congregate and so the best thing we can do is follows. I mean certainly use personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently. Don't go near somebody. Who's sick if you're sick either? Stay home or see a doctor immediately from the public health point of view what we need to be really rigorous in finding everybody. That's got flu like symptoms that could be covert nineteen and asked them to be isolated or quarantined in their own homes. How do we do that? Larry because if somebody's got a flu like symptom in the middle of Italy and they don't know who the ground zero patient there was yet. They don't quite know who brought the infection into the country so so every single person because nobody knows who's been contact with somebody who may or may not have symptoms of every single person needs to be tested. Who has a flu system will if I have a flu symptoms? Yes they should be tested. But you're making an important insight. There is a point where you can contain an outbreak. The Way I've suggested so in the United States example health departments have a pretty good idea. Who's infected who's been exposed but there comes a point and the point may have passed in Italy. It may certainly has passed in Iran Korea. Where you can't do that and then you just have to go to. What's public health? People call mitigation in trying to Temporarily closed down major congregate events. You know big sporting events or oh you may even have to close schools for a short period of time. These things can delay but ultimately if this is a fast moving epidemic would probably not going to be able to do it. We're GONNA have to race for a vaccine and the race is on for vaccine so you say certain moments you know. Keeping people contained in their homes for instance some of those moments have have passed maybe in Italy and Iran. What can they be doing if the moment has passed? Is there something you're seeing in other countries outside of the quarantines that they shouldn't be doing my big worry is that you've got it in Iran in a region that is highly unstable new? Imagine foreseeability that it will go to Syria or Ghanistan or sub Saharan Africa. We have weak health systems once that I think you know we're really on the precipice of something really particularly bad. We're seeing people in Syria. They don't have food or shelter. And so what would be a not fatal? Perhaps in another population would be fatal. They're absolutely when you have people that are vulnerable that that are suffering from respiratory and other kinds of infectious diseases. Or you're going to have many more deaths what I'd like to see is for the United States to lead just way we did with the bowl in west Africa where President Obama sought a one billion dollar plus emergency fund. That's Larry Gosden professor of Global Health Law at Georgetown University Director of the World Health Organization Center on Global Health Professor. Thank you so much for speaking with US my pleasure. Thanks so much for having me as we just heard fears of Cova. Nineteen are infecting stock markets around the world. Today let's bring in Jill Schlesinger business analyst for CBS News and host of Jilin money. She's tracking that part of the story. Jill welcome thank you. And it's not just here in the United States where the Dow fell more than a thousand points today at one point the markets were way off sharply in Italy Germany the UK South Korea. What what are you seeing? What's going on? Well you know? I think this really developed over the course of the weekend last week when I spoke to large investors there was sort of consensus that look we know. Growth is going to take a hit and China. Maybe a tiny bit in the glow but this seems to be calm contained. It seems to be that cases New reported cases are are slowing down but then we hear a bunch of cases in South Korea in Italy as well as in Iran and now all of a sudden. There's a new story that's developing. What if this is worse than we thought what if the spread is so easily contained what already somewhat weakened Europe tips into a recession as a result of this. These are the conversations. I've been having this morning. It's why as you say markets on or off about three three and a half percent here in the United States you know look for for some some days over the last couple of weeks. We have seen markets fall because there was some concern about that about the virus. We saw that happen with apple when it lowered its revenue outlook for March. But for the most part as you say investors of sort of shrugged this off but it what point do you think we're at a risk for a real correction in the stock market because the virus usually when you have a correction or the start of selling in the middle of bull run it happens for something that's completely unforeseen now sure that could be something that happens with the Central Bank? It could be that you thought that the Fed was going to do something. The Fed's not going to do something but this is something that investors call an exotic event. Something that happens way outside the scope of what most people would consider. And so you think about a natural disaster or something like this where you can't get your arms around it now. I should say that when the G. Twenty got together this weekend they released reports saying hey you know. We think the growth in China's going to be down by four tenths of a percent a tenth of a percent Across the globe elves are not huge numbers in fact a lot of the analysts. I talked to think it's going to be worse than that but what I think you're starting to understand is that sometimes selling can be quite emotional and this does not mean that. We're all emotional animals all the time but as you see the selling develop over the the evening session last night I could tell there was an acceleration in. Now we're seeing that come to fruition. Could it be the beginning of something? Sure but could we wake up tomorrow morning and people say wait a second. We're not in this for the short term. It's a long term event. Will you're right? Fear tends to be the thing that drives wild swings at least initially in the stock market. And we're GONNA find out how badly the new corona viruses actually hurting the global economy but the US Federal Reserve. We know it's keeping a close eye on this. What might do could step in and intervene. If there's a larger outbreak there is no doubt in my mind that we should take. Jerome Powell. The chairman of the Fed at his word that they are monitoring the situation if the Federal Reserve officials begin to see growth slide in the United States. And they would they would. I would think this would have to be a substantial slowdown not just a a slowdown in a certain sector. But something more pervasive where growth instead of being a two percent comes in maybe below one percent in the first quarter. That's when the Fed is likely to act. I think that it is almost without question that the Fed is going to cut rates if it sees growth side and they said as much in their last meeting and certainly Jerome Powell said that when he testified before Congress recently so yes the Fed will step in. Doesn't mean the Fed can stop markets from falling at least in the short term. A couple other things. I'm watching today. Us oil futures fell five percent on reduced demand. Investors were piling into gold sort of a safe haven and then look what happened in Milan several events at the fashion week. Shut Down There Milan financial center in Italy. Just briefly. What what will you be watching for the next several days? Well I think that in Italy we should keep an eye on the fact that this is northern Italy and you know about thirty to forty percent of Italian. Gdp is in that region. So that's something that's very important. Keep our eyes on tourism on exports on manufacturing and supply chains. So there we're going to be looking at not just China but Japan and Vietnam and Singapore all these areas are going to be impacted and obviously so away.

"Reported a surge in new corona virus cases in Hubei Province to over fourteen thousand people from just fifteen hundred a day earlier. The jump came after authorities decided to include anyone who's been clinically diagnosed in the count. Not just people who've had lab confirmed cases. All of this comes as the world. Health Organization has been criticized for its response to the outbreak are China diplomatic and political editor. Jeremy Page has more. So Jeremy you say there are two main criticisms that have been leveled at the World Health Organization. What's the first one? So the first issue was questioned the timing of the Declaration of Public Health Agency of international concern which the. Who eventually did on January thirtieth? The point of that is to better coordinate global response to these kinds of outbreaks and a lot of public health. Experts feel it should have done that early up and you also saw a lot of governments Starting to take matters into their own hand evacuating citizens from Wuhan The epicenter of the outbreak and also imposing their own travel restrictions on China even though the. Who was advising against those kind of restrictions and the second one has to do with the. Who's praise of China's response to the outbreak? Right that's right. The second thing is about the degree to which the. Who has praised China's response in particular when the director general visited Beijing and met with Xi Jinping? The director general is being very complementary. He's said the China's setting a new standard fag break response. He's praised China's transparency. And this has been quite controversial amongst public health experts because you know there is evidence that Chinese authorities did not immediately reveal An increase in a number of infections in the first half January's there was an issue with transparency that There's also an issue in that you know that the core of the Chinese response is being this massive quarantine some sixty million people who bay province of which is the capital. And it's unclear whether that is going to be effective in the long term. A lot of public health acts experts feel. There's no scientific evidence for quarantine on such a massive scale They can backfire by discouraging people from reporting themselves to health authorities. When they're sick you talked a little bit about China's efforts to contain the outbreak. And questions. About how it's counting those people who have been infected. We just saw this huge spike in the number of new cases. Can you tell me a bit more? What happened there? So we're seeing this big spike in numbers from WHO Bay province because they started today Making public this category of cases that they previously were probably gathering data on but it went making public which is people who've been diagnosed with the virus on the basis of clinical diagnosis. So examination of that you know symptoms medical history Leon but without laboratory tests because they take a long time and also it seems that being a bit unreliable so now saying not that much broader category of cases and the big question now is are we going to see a similar increase from other provinces. Which up until this point also have not made public that broader category so has the World Health Organization or the global community changed how they view China's response to the outbreak and also didn't we see some internal shuffles in China today as well the WHO continues to be very supportive the WJ chief. We had an interview with him yesterday and he continued to China for responding fast early on he actually said that the measures that tank massive quarantining who by did comply with w guidelines though was important to monitor to make sure that human rights are being observed but you are continuing to see foreign governments ignoring the w advice and then yes domestically of course you have. The sackings of these officials notably the The party the Communist Party chief of province and the Communist Party chief of Wuhan City They were replaced today with People who have background particularly in the public security and legal walls so have a track record of dealing with maintain stability which I think shows of. That's a real concern for the Chinese government. You can find all of our coverage of the new colonel virus outbreak up on. Wsj DOT COM on two markets. We're going to stay with the corona virus outbreak and look at the impact that it's had on markets. Yesterday we talked about how the decline in Chinese economic activity caused the price of some commodities like oil and copper to fall. But today we're going to talk about how there are also areas that are doing quite well such as the market for niche raw materials markets reporter. Ivanka chill coty has more the commodities where the prices rallied. Are Those where the drop in Chinese output has actually outweighed any decline in demand? So that's things like thermal coal which is used in generating electricity and manganese which is used by steelmakers. Since the outbreak in China trade has been curtailed. Some minds have been shot down and that's basically squeezed production of these things. If you look at some northern ports in China where thermal coal is sort of shipped down to Chinese cities the price of them will call has gone up three point eight percent this year. And that's gone up to eighty two point four dollars you can compare that to Brent whether prices actually dropped eighteen percent as everyone braces for Chinese demand to slow. And here's what else were paying attention to today. While get a key. Piece of economic data when the Consumer Price Index for January is released this morning now. Inflation has been a big puzzle for central bankers and economists. That's because at a time of record. Low unemployment and sustained economic growth. Prices haven't risen by as much as many had expected in the United States on wall. Street will also get earnings from two big food companies Pepsi and Craft Hines. Finally Kristina. Cook Spent Three Hundred Twenty eight days in space. That's the longest ever mission by a woman. She came back down to Earth last Thursday and yesterday she spoke about what it was like to return. I feel great. I'm really fortunate a lot of people because of the different nervous-system things than changes that go on for microgravity when you're readopting to one g into Earth you might experience the motion sickness and things like that. I'm really fortunate in that. I have not experienced that but what I have noticed is my balance has taken a little while to get used to so the physical act of walking with something to get used to. But I'm feeling great. I think just the all of the new things that I'm experiencing sort of you see your mind. Wake up to the sensory experiences that define earth and the things that are here. Three astronauts remain at the space station including Jessica Amir who was cooked partner in another milestone. The first all female spacewalk. That's what's news from the Wall Street Journal.
