Live From the First Principles Forum: Charlie Talks 'The Great Reset'

"Your new book just came out. The great reset. Yes. A lot of people have heard the term. A lot of people to understand what that term means. So let's go through some definitions. We want to touch on the great reset. And I want you to tell us what a globalist is. You got it. Great to be here, by the way. I love Indiana. I grew up in Illinois right across the border. Any other refugees from Illinois? Yeah, I'm talking about freedom lovers that found a better place. So we'll get into the great reset in a second, but many of you don't know this, we have term limits in Illinois. But it's different than most states. It's one term in office one term in jail. So when we ask for our governor's cell number, we actually mean a cell number. If you're there last night, you got to hear that twice now in the last almost three times, all right, Mike and the last 24 hours. It works every single time. So honored to be here, I love Indiana. So the great reset. It's a very real thing. It came after the Chinese Fauci coronavirus. The World Economic Forum wrote a booklet called pushing towards the great reset. But first, let's talk about the world what the World Economic Forum is and what the world health assembly is. So the World Economic Forum is an organization that meets in Davos, Switzerland every year. They're actually just concluding their meeting right now. This is celebrities, heads of state, heads of business. They get together to try and further globalize the world. So what does that mean? A borderless, one world currency. They have stated aims and objectives, what the great reset is and what they think the world is going to look like in the coming decades, if you will, in 2030 or 2040. Some of their goals are so provocative, I personally believe it's called hiding in plain sight. So my belief is that it's so hard to grasp that their communication strategy is that instead of doing it and kind of smoke filled rooms, they just put it on a website. And then they say, oh, it's not news. It's come on, it's right there on the website. And you read this stuff, you're like, oh wow, you say that we're going to own nothing, and we're going to be happy by the year 2030, like that's really creepy. On their serious. And they're very serious.

"And here he is, cross examining and Nestlé rep. Would you agree with me that your product should not be used where there is impure water? Yes or no. We gave all the instructions just answered. What would you want, but we can not. Oof. Eventually, this global outrage led to the development of the international code of marketing of breast milk substitutes, which was adopted by the world health assembly. It's supposed to protect against unethical marketing of the sort that Nestlé was doing. And when the code was proposed at the world health assembly in 1981, the United States voted against it. After protect the companies, it all costs nothing like capitalism. But okay, despite the U.S. vote, the world health assembly adopted that, so no more unethical marketing and promotion to formula, right? You know, whenever we talk about this to students, you know, they're like, oh.

"world health assembly" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"I'm sure you could use some good news. So last week in the week prior, we were warning about how the World Health Organization was going to use its powers to try to create a pseudo treaty with the help of America, by the way, that would destroy international sovereignty and have the ability to be able to declare international health emergencies at a whim. You will not hear about this on the mainstream media and special shout out to James, we had him on our show. He's terrific. It's Jane rusky substack dot com and put simply, we won. The people won. Remember, the power of the people is stronger than the people in power. Now you'll not hear about any of this on the mainstream media. And when you dive into it, it's extraordinary about all of the amendments that were defeated and they were not even put forward at all together. So on January 18th, 2022, the Biden regime proposed amendments to the international health regulations. They did their best to try to keep it hidden. On March 31st, a light started to be shined on this. I started to see articles around this while on Friday May 20th, a document filed in the United Kingdom court case revealed the working group on pandemic response was, quote, unable to reach a consensus regarding the new amendments. On Tuesday, march 24th, 2022, a new set of replacement amendments was submitted to the 75th world health assembly in complete violation of article 55 on Friday March 27th, 2022, the May 24th replacement amendments were revised and published by the World Health Organization. On Friday, May 27th, 2022, the revised replacement amendments were adopted by the world health assembly. The document was also adopted, but then the Biden administration will health organization in the forces seeking to enact a global agenda, suffered a stunning defeat. The events that occurred in committee a during the 75th world health assembly were filled with intrigue and conflict that was masked by diplomatic politeness. You can go through all of this at James reski substack. It's very heady. It's very, very detailed. But put simply the pharmaceutical industrial complex because of the attention that was put forward because of the light that was shined on this. They retreated. All of the massive international world health assembly declarations of power. They were not put forward. This goes to show the power of independent media, mainstream media wouldn't be bothered with this. Mainstream corporate conservative media, by the way, they wouldn't dare be, you know, come on. I mean, why should we care about what's happening at the world health assembly? But those of you that contacted to representatives, those of you that shared it on social media, we won. All of us together we won. Tucker Carlson deserves huge credit for this. Steve Bannon deserves massive credit for this. By the way, Steve Bannon is another example of the sussman kind of double standard. Steve Bannon gets indicted for contempt of Congress, sussman just walks completely and totally free. Separate issue. The world health assembly had big goals and we covered this extensively we had Michelle bachmann. We had James rusky. We went and we had name Naomi wolf, by the way. On how this was going to be an erosion of medical autonomy and sovereignty and a gift to the international pharmaceutical biomedical fascist state. And we won. We pushed back against it. And you played a role in that. So thank you. Those of you that had the courage to stand against this. Thank you those of you that shared our episodes and were willing to get into this. And by the way, if you listen to conservative media, that didn't cover the world health assembly, that should have been a testing moment for you. If you know conservative media that didn't. I won't be bothered by such things or the world health assembly. They failed you. Now thankfully we won, we snuck out a win. But boy, it was tight. So that's some good news for today. All of the amendments that we're going to be put forward at the world health assembly failed. Those of you that message your leaders. Those are that message people in control. Thank you. Thank you, thank you. Okay, let's get to some other news here..

"We're keeping our eyes on the world health assembly in the World Health Organization. And someone who has an amazing website, it's called leave the who dot com or leave the WHO dot com. And it's a substack page that is monitoring everything happening in the World Health Organization in real time. What amendments are being discussed, whose presenting them it's an extraordinary website, leave the who dot com. And the brilliant mind behind it is James rusky with us right now and he's been doing an amazing job covering it. James welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Hey, thanks for having me, Charlie. I greatly appreciate it. I know time is precious. So I'll dive right into it. The latest that we've been able to find is going on, it's just so slippery, okay? The United States presented amendments back in January to the international health regulations. Now, if anybody says the word treaty, or they say the phrase pandemic treaty, that's a decoy. You're talking about something other than what we're talking about. We're talking about proposed amendments to international health regulations. Very concise documents, what has happened is in the last week or so, they've been having difficulty reaching consensus, right? Basically, people are objecting to it. Nations that are there. And the latest thing that I'm aware of because obviously I'm not in Geneva. I'm in my dining room. The latest thing that we're aware of is often some backroom somewhere. There are discussions. And the latest thing that the person who's running this committee that is considering these amendments, he said, in the issue, or to forward the cause of transparency, whatever happens in this back room meeting will be emailed to the people who are in the assembly. And I'm scratching my head going. Well, why don't you just talk about it in public, right? Why do you have to email it? How is that transparent? And so what's going on is they don't actually vote on these amendments. The procedure by which they get all of their resolutions and their documents, they'll have a document that's published on their website and all of the people who are there for the gathering for the assembly will have their computers and they can access the document. And they'll say something like, well, we're talking about document XYZ. Are there any objections, oh, there aren't any objections? Great. Documents been

Kash Patel Makes Sense of the Michael Sussman Trial

"A friend of the show who has been monitoring the Michael sussman trial, and does a great job. His cash Patel, and cash Patel knows a lot of things happening out there that are below the surface. If you know what I mean, you know what I mean. Cash, welcome back to the program. Charlie, thanks so much for having me. I love the backdrop. Looking better and better every time. Yeah, thank you. We are in an undisclosed location in Indiana one of my favorite states. It doesn't get the attention it deserves. Cash what's going on in the sussman trial. We've been so distracted for good reason on the tragedy in Texas, World Health Organization, world health assembly, kind of catch us up kind of get us up to speed here. What's going on in the Michael sussman trial? Okay, real quick. So the government and the defense have rested their cases. That means they're done presenting evidence. So tomorrow, the judge, excuse me, the trial attorneys for John Durham and the attorneys for the defense will give their closing arguments to the jury. And the case is very simple in terms of evidence that actually is going to be used to convict Michael sussman. One, the deposition transcript of my interrogation of Michael sussman from 2018, which the whole world can see on Durham watch dot com. Where he said to me under oath. Hi, Michael sussman, I'm doing all this work, alpha bank stuff for the client, the client being Hillary Clinton. Michael sussman is now charged by John Dern with lying to the FBI because he went to the office with this alphabet nonsense. And this is what the evidence came out of trial and told the FBI. I'm here as quote a good Samaritan, not for anyone. The problem is you have the deposition, the testimony from the FBI, which they're dirty cops over there. So they're not that helpful. But if Michael Susan's own text message entered into evidence, the night before he went to the FBI, where he texted the head of the FBI's lawyer department and said, I'm coming to you as a good Samaritan. So did he lie to Congress or do you lie to the FBI? They're both illegal, but he's charged with lying to the FBI. And the kicker, the nice one is, the thumb drive that they loaded the alphabet fantasy on, paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign. Was bought by Michael sussman in Washington, D.C., and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign. They actually entered a receipt and billing record into

"But 12 out of 13 of the proposed amendments at the world health assembly have failed. The Biden administration was going to Geneva Switzerland, and they proposed 13 amendments. Many of whom would have allowed digital passports, they would have allowed all of these, you know, the new kind of pandemic treaty regime and it failed 12 out of 13 of the most extreme and radical measures because of such dramatic and overwhelming backlash. So the WHO has now withdrawn 12 of Biden's sovereignty amendments amid fierce opposition. I'm reading from dot com. Amid charges of seeding U.S. sovereignty in the World Health Organization, 12 of the 13 amendments submitted by the Biden administration for a vote in the world health assembly this week in Geneva, have been removed from consideration. The amendments were publicized only last month, and it was advocacy of the independent researcher James ragus that alerted the public to the implications for the U.S. sovereignty, prompting a ground swell popular opposition, largely in the past week. Ragusa has been monitoring the world health assembly proceedings, which began Sunday, said the withdrawal appears to be the result of quote the massive response from people all over the world in opposition to the amendments to the international health regulations along with legal actions in the United Kingdom, along with the fact that the amendments can be resubmitted in the future and the World Health Organization's ultimate objective is for the leading nations to sign a global pandemic

2500 Years Ago, Aristotle Articulated What We're Living Through Now

"So Aristotle, 2500 years ago. I think better articulates part of what we are living through right now than even most commentators in the media. So Aristotle talked about things that do not change. So knowledge of things that do not change is wisdom. There's practical knowledge, and then there's knowledge that is eternal. That is rooted in the natural law. That is one of the reasons why when Aristotle was rediscovered and kind of restudied, if you will, by Thomas Aquinas and many others, there was kind of this constant through line of the classics to the Bible to practical judgment or prudence today. So Aristotle writes in the politics. He says, tyrants aim to break the spirit of their subjects. They know that a poor spirited man will never plot against anybody. A tyrant second aim is to breed mutual distrust. This is 2500 years ago. He was writing. Tyranny is never overthrown until people can begin to trust one another. And that is a reason why tyrants are always at war with the good. Tyrants feel that good men are dangerous to their authority. Not only because they think it shamed to be governed, despotically, but also because of their loyalty to themselves and to others and because of their refusal to betray one another or anybody else. The final aim of a tyrant is to make sure that subjects are incapable of action. Nobody attempts the impossible, therefore no one will attempt to overthrow the tyrant or the tyranny when all are incapable of action. So let's just kind of summarize some of that as we talk about the World Economic Forum and the world health assembly and Joe Biden, who is a tyrant. That's kind of just recap that first they want to break your will. The second is, they want to breed mutual distrust. And then the third is that they want to make you incapable of action.

How Can We Stop the Upcoming WHO Treaty? Dr. Naomi Wolf Weighs In

"Want to ask you, what can we do to actually put brakes on the World Health Organization world health assembly? Is there still time left on the clock? What can be done? Yeah, well, these are the right questions to ask. I just want to say, I'm scared of that, too. Of course they're going to have their own police force in Canada when Trudeau declared martial law for 24 hours. There were extremely violent police slash military figures abusing protesters and they were un badged, right? They didn't police officer will have his name or her name. Because they're accountable. But these were unidentifiable, really scary people. Same thing in France. You're seeing them all over the world. And there are entities like Blackwater now called Chi, which can send militaries all over the world. So it's the easiest thing in the world to have these mercenaries come over the border now from Canada, or else I've raised this morning before their military age men pouring over the border from places like Afghanistan and Ukraine and the easiest thing in the world to send them to God knows where and to arm them to assist the World Health Organization. So I've been saying as you know for some time that we're at war, I don't want to be a war, but a war is being waged on us. And we have to face the fact. So what can be done? Well, first of all, I can not believe I'm saying this a lifelong former Democrat and child of hippies, but thank God for the Second Amendment. Because one reason that the United States is not entirely enslaved like Australia or Shanghai or Canada in many ways. We're relatively freer compared to those countries is that we have, you know, millions of owners of guns. And I'm a peaceful person. This should not be taken out of context. But it is harder to subjugate an armed population. And this is why our founders gave us the Second Amendment. For exactly times like these. They knew that it was harder to subjugate an armed population. But may that be the worst case scenario, I really hope that it does not devolve into Civil War, which is really what the next thing is in history. When you have an occupying force, which is what the WHO will be by next week. But there are very important things you can do at the state level. Sorry. New Hampshire passed a raft of really good bills in one of them is a Bill where basically they said to the federal government if, you know, you can try all you want to issue federal regulations or laws that are unconstitutional, but New Hampshire is not going to enforce them.

"This is a guest I've wanted to have on for quite some time. Someone who has just been one of the most articulate and courageous communicators during all of this nonsense that we lived through at the last couple of years, as she is the author of an upcoming book, the bodies of others. The new authoritarians COVID-19 and the war against the human. It comes out in just about a week, and I want to ask her about all sorts of different things. It is the wonderful doctor Naomi wolf, doctor. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much for having me. Thank you. So I want to just dive right into it. Something's happening rather consequential in Geneva in the coming days. Tell us about what's happening with the World Health Organization world health assembly. Is this an attempt to try to usurp our sovereignty? All the warnings you just heard are absolutely correct. They're not exaggerated. And we need to be extremely, extremely worried. No alarm is too great for what we're facing. She was incredibly out of summary of the danger, but basically I've got a chapter in the bodies of others explaining that the nation state is the one thing, a nation state with secure borders, you know, I'm pro league of immigration. I'm the daughter of immigrants, but the globalists absolutely love dissolving national borders and they love weakening people's allegiance to their local or national identity national language, national culture, erasing national histories. And the reason they love it is just what we're seeing with the World Economic Forum. It makes people weaker at the grassroots level and empowers these oligarchs. And so it's a 1000% correct that if the U.S. becomes a signatory to the World Economic Forum proposal treaty, we can expect to see mercenaries on our shores or we can expect to see as miss bachman pointed out U.S. Military doing the bidding of the

"Understand what is the most effective and the most urgent fight for liberty and fight against tyranny for our generation. For this moment, where are the tyrants putting all the eggs in what basket? How are they trying to control us? Now they've tried a lot of different things. This did not come easily to them. This not come lightly. You see they've tried to take away firearms and guns. It really doesn't work very well. They try to control us through thought control and censorship. They're going to continue to try to do that. And that's still ongoing, but that's a little messier because you get people like Joe Rogan and Bill Maher, the pushback against it, and people create new platforms like rumble and get her and truth social and it becomes harder and harder to control people that way. They tried it through economic control and they're going to continue to try to do it through economic control by destroying and deteriorating our currency by trying to have people not own anything and then be happy, which is one of the promises of the great reset. But even that, the economic control, it comes up against challenges in opposition, crypto based currencies, entrepreneurs, people that still own property. It's difficult, but it's not impossible, but economics is part of it, but the one fight. Against tyranny, the one flavor of tyranny, if you will. That has been the most effective. And is the most important to repeat, focus on understand that the fight for our generation will be the fight against biomedical fascism and it will occur in healthcare and medical privacy or the lack thereof.

Michele Bachmann Discusses the Plot to Undermine American Sovereignty

"The person that has really pulled the fire alarm, the person that has been able to warn us about what's happening at the World Health Organization. Is Michelle bachmann. There's a clip with Michelle bachmann, and the great Steve Bannon, going back and forth about this that has been sent to me probably by 30 people in the last 24 hours. And one of the most effective interviews that I've seen in quite some time warning, the American population of what's happening very soon in Geneva Switzerland. Is what Michelle bachmann said on that program with us right now is Michelle herself. To be able to walk us through what we're just getting into. And the World Health Organization meeting, Michelle, welcome to the program. First of all, thank you for really signaling the alarm here. How do you learn about it and get into the details? What are we about to do? We being America in Geneva, Switzerland, if we don't stop it. Hi, Charlie. I just want to bring greetings to you for regent university too. We adore you. We love everything you're doing and you may not know this, but I'm the adviser for turning point for turning point USA on the university campus. So I'm a big fan of YouTube. So thanks for having me on. But the issue that we're talking about one is one that just came up recently. No one should feel bad if they don't know about it. This issue was meant by design to run under the radar. The Biden administration has amendments that they took to the United Nations to the world health assembly. The healthcare arm of the United Nations is the World Health Organization. But the World Health Organization's governing body is the world health assembly. They meet once a year in Geneva Switzerland. They're going to meet beginning starting this Sunday, May 22nd to the 28th, and they take up their business. Agenda item 16.2 this year are the proposed Biden amendments to the 2005 international health rules. Those are the rules that we in the United States agreed to beginning for international health beginning back in 2005. This is not a treaty. There is a proposed global pandemic treaty that's being worked on right now that will be voted on in 2024. That's not what this

"Vaccines. When is the right time to actually do that? So we've been working very hard through our covax and partners to ensure vaccine equity around the world. But governments also need to make changes right now, because when this is over, and again, it will end. We're going to move on to the next crisis, because there's plenty on deck. The other thing that we, that is really quite exciting to me and we don't know all about this yet is this pandemic treaty. So this week, in WHO and around the world, governments, ministries, from all of our member states, met at a special session of the world health assembly. And this is really, really unique because it's not a common for WHO to bring member states together for one topic. And what they decided to do was to come together to develop this pandemic tree, this agreement, this protocol. I don't know what it will eventually be called, but to come together to make a promise and to make a contract to do better on pandemic preparedness. And this is really critical because it goes beyond words so that we are actually better prepared, not just say we will, because that's easy. What we need to do is actually take those concrete steps. So this week was a really important week. All of us are really quite excited about this and we're so proud of our director general for bringing everybody together on this. But this has to come it will take some time as the treaty is developed in the contents of the treaty need to be discussed and negotiated and this will take some time. But it was a really, really important step. And for us, what we need to see is, you think of the last time some of these big agreements were made. Think about the last World War. Think about after World War II, when all of the countries came together and instead of having isolationism, they came together for multilateralism. And you think about the situation of never again, like never again being in this situation. This is actually an opportunity to take that one step forward. So this is a good step. It will take some time to actually develop, but all of us are really quite excited that that step was taken this week. I mean, I think that to your last point, there is this question of how do you hold people accountable? There have been other agreements and it seems like the intentions are there to make things better. But how do you ensure that this is more than just words on paper? Well, this is a step getting us closer to that..

"In the example that I just gave with countries that did better. They made changes following that trauma. And in the middle of that trauma. And in the middle of this pandemic around the world, what we need our governments to make change and make those investments, pandemic preparedness is a constant. It doesn't start and stop. And unfortunately, we are currently living through cycles of panic and neglect in the middle of the worst pandemic we've had in a century. And this boggles my mind because if we don't use this opportunity to make those changes in building that infrastructure, that public health infrastructure in primary healthcare, making sure that people have access to tools to lifesaving tools like diagnostics, Therapeutics and vaccines. When is the right time to actually do that? So we've been working very hard through our covax and partners to ensure vaccine equity around the world.

Welcome back into the G in Ursula's show Coming up at 10 o'clock, Michael Medved comes in with a conservative reaction to the second of impeachment of President Trump looking forward to talking to him, But right now, Ursula, we need to talk, and this is one. I'm gonna sit back. Relax and see what you want to talk about. Oh, wait a minute. Okay, So we were talking about this morning during our morning meeting that We have noticed many more of our friends posting on Facebook and other social media platforms that they've been getting the vaccine that you see them rolling up their sleeves. Hey, I got it. And I asked you because I had a big conversation about this last night. How do you feel about it? So I actually want to hear you first. No, no, no, no. I'm perfectly unpermitted Lee fine with those getting their vaccinations. G, huh? I want you to be as honest as you were during your discussion this morning. You said you did have a feeling you in fact, had such a strong feeling that in the middle of our morning meeting you got up, walked back and forth. You can't change it on me. So what creation I had a cramp in my leg. I get when you were talking about that. You said we need to talk about people getting vaccinations, and it looked perfectly young and no problem And you have to fill a certain way. You know, I'm kidding. Let me quit throwing you under the bus and let me keep it above. Well, that even a buck right now, all right, Here's the deal. I am surprised that you brought this up because these are things that I have been thinking that but I'm very embarrassed about it. I've seen it. I've seen people get on there and they show their arm being done and they start the needle's going in. And then I got my vaccination. I have a vaccination, and I'm seeing it. And I'm just kind of sitting back like So what? Who cares? Because I'm a little envious. I'm low jealous and just wondering, I got all these questions. But I'm embarrassed. I don't make a post about it. I don't say anything. I'm just embarrassed that I feel this way that I have Vaccine envy, right? I got watching people and I'm and I'm judging too. I'm like, Well, you don't even have a job and you look really healthy. And why are you going first? And wait a minute? Are you a smoker? And and so I am embarrassed and I'll admit it. So if you guys were gonna text me if you got a tweet at me, you have every right to shame me. Okay, So I'm glad you were honest, because My honest opinion is that I just want a Z many people to get the vaccine is possible because that's what we're trying to do. Herd immunity, right? I would only be upset of someone used there. Power or their money and their influence to try to cut in line. But I love seeing my friends actually get the vaccine friends who work in the health field. I would love to see more of my teacher friends. Show their pictures when they get a chance, and hopefully that will be sooner rather than later. Since we want to get kids back in school. I'm okay with it. But I do have people who I love dearly who were saying, Yeah. What's up with that? That person's young, that person's healthy that person's even not even in the healthcare field s. Oh, absolutely. I think there is going to be vaccine envy, and I'm not sure I am going with posted. If you think it's gonna help influence people positively opposed whatever you want, actually, but but posted. I mean, I have no issue because right now we've heard even 30% of health care workers are refusing the vaccine or saying we're gonna hold off. There are people who are, you know, only 50% in the state of Washington are for sure going to get it so anything to show that Hey, I did it. I feel it's comfortable. I'm OK with it. He brag away. People are texting and saying these know those of the folks in the health care industry. Uh, trust me. I'm telling you real stories. Yeah. I'm not gonna put their names out here. But I know some people a never never walked foot in the health care industry, and I don't understand. I kind of want to call him Ursula and say, just ask. Hey, how'd you get? How'd you get up there Now? Here's my chest. But it might be like when people assume someone's not handicapped. And then you know narc on them and get upset because they parked in a handicap spot And then Oh, In fact, yes, I am handicapped. Good Chef.

"Views this visit as a grievous affront to its national integrity. In his giving editorial on Wednesday, Beijing's Global Times newspaper one quote. Being a pawn in the U. S hardline strategy towards China will leave the island of Taiwan too unbearable disaster. The mainland has many cards, including the military card. More importantly, it is much more determined to play the cards than Washington unquote. Because I didn't get to you on the round. Robin the last time you got a first here what your thoughts Well, look, I think that the Taiwan Taiwanese have done a wonderful job ever since that they the Republican China arrived in 1949. Their Democratic We're friends, but I wonder exactly what the timing of this is about and what we're all doing, and we are really looking down at the end game, then the clearly Beijing is appalled and angry. We can do extend greater recognition for what they consider a breakaway province and we've had a deal. So I'm not sure and I don't believe it's been explained by secretary of State Problem where this all ends challenges in the South China Sea, condemning them for Hong Kong fine condemning them for the Uighurs. Going to Taiwan. What is the final objective? American tragedy? Is it cold War to? I applaud the secretary going to Taiwan. He might learn something. They have 26 million people. They have, like 400 some odd cases on what they did with social distancing and wearing there. They didn't do anything more extraordinary than that. So he might learn something, and I think you know, Trump just likes to yank China's chain, and I don't think anybody's thought the number 23 and four steps after this. It just feels good. Now Clinton, top official secretary of of of the visited there when, when, when? When? And Obama was in office. So this is not completely you know unprecedented. What's different is that there is a memorial to the former president of Ah, Taiwan and will is our attend that I'm anything that the Chinese would really see is in a fried then he hasn't said yet whether he's actually going to do that, but Yeah, Look, China has has been focused on Taiwan for sometime. They just put sanctions on Lockheed Martin for arms sales to Taiwan. Look, there are two other things here at play. One is a czar is headed to Taipei because he's working to secure additional pp and and and pharmaceutical supplies for the United States. But then I think second is hey wants to put attention on Taiwan's desire for transparency about how the virus began in China and how they were not able to participate. The World Health Assembly is a member of the World Health Organization. So this is a little bit about that, too about focusing attention on the difference between how Taiwan he handled those early days and late last year in January and how China handled them. Okay, Clarence, you all thought? I think it's a big reason why the HHS secretary is going over there, but which is unusual in itself. But what China did a well A lot of explaining China hasn't done yet. It's afar. It's open happened early on, they business, some degree deliberately suppressed all serious the situation, Wass, we have a lot of issues with China Health care being one of them. Or the honor Court pandemic control. Being one of them on the other is, it's always rather satisfying to reassure.

S. payments to the World Health Organization for sixty days of what he called its China centric coronavirus now actually it's a four page letter where it shows the president sent at essentially he is saying he's prepared to withdraw funding the letter is clear either the world health organization's make changes or the United States walks now the president did not specify what reforms are needed for him to restart U. S. funding and I should point out the whose largest single source of funding is the United States of America the president also said discussions between the United States and the agency's leaders were already under way but he didn't give any details the World Health Organization said is considering the contents of the letter but what is the central arch but that the president makes he says the who's handling of the coronavirus crisis cost lives by accepting China's assessments of the spread and threat in the early weeks wait wait wait did Donald Trump do the same thing didn't he say an awful lot of nice things about China well in this letter the president wrote it's clear the repeated missteps by you and your organization in responding to the pandemic have been extremely costly the world now the timeline the president lays out mixes legitimate concerns and inaccuracies it also excludes information about what the president himself knew and when he knew it for instance let me give you some examples many governments researchers and public health experts were baffled that who did not express more skepticism about China's claims in mid January let me just explain there is no evidence there was no evidence that of human to human transmission the letter restated some of these concerns and added new ones including some that don't hold up to scrutiny let me give you some examples first the president's claim for instance the poor who quote ignored credible reports of the virus spreading in water December two thousand nineteen or even earlier he cites as evidence information published by lancet but Richard Horton chief editor of lancet said that the journal did not publish its first reports on the corona virus until late January the letter the president Roque also takes aim at who for Peter the praising China's transparency despite evidence the Chinese official silence whistleblowers and we talked about doctor lie but the president's letter does not mention that Donald Trump himself made similar claims remember January twenty fourth when the president said the United States greatly appreciates China's efforts in transparency that's just one example I'm sorry seventh the president said he wasn't concerned about China covering things up on February twenty sixth he said China was working very hard and on March fourth that it had the situation under control now if if trump makes good on his threat the World Health Organization will take a big hit the United States makes mandatory payments to maintain its membership and it's a it's a voluntary donation which they also give we've also given over the years add that totals about fifteen percent of the agency's budget but do you understand this is very disturbing because who has been in the forefront of organizing the world and this move has sparked concerns the United States could lose influence on the international stage to try to and one of the Chinese government do they immediately hit back and said the United States was using China as an excuse to shirk financial obligations that have been jointly determined by who member states this is what the foreign ministry of China said the unilateral U. S. move to stop funding is a violation of its own international obligations we are still in a critical juncture and supporting who is upholding multilateralism supporting internationalism anti pandemic cooperation to save lives and the Chinese concluded by saying that the trump administration quote is trying to mislead the public smear China and shipped blame for its own incompetent response four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten you tell me what you think I'm a great fan of the World Health Organization they've done marvelous work and for the president to jettison this is crazy Mike emails hi John I have mixed feelings for the who particularly with the who framework convention on tobacco control I agree with you on that I'm and then he goes on to say the fact that trump is pointing out more inadequacies is not surprising to me nor is it to me who is not a perfect organization we know that but we know that what they've done has been remarkable and now the World Health Organization is meeting to rally international response to the corona virus pandemic and where is the United States no where to be seen the world health assembly and annual who meeting this year was transformed into a virtual strategy session for the covered nineteen fight and guess what we weren't there Donald Trump boycotted we're in the middle of a pandemic that is affecting the entire world M. where is the present and what amazes me is I read the four page letter the president doesn't specify what reforms are needed for him to restore U. S. funding I mean it's it's what it's malfeasance I believe that and as I shared with you the very things that Donald Trump accuses the World Health Organization of well he did the same thing four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten let's go to Tom calling from Castro valley Tom welcome to KGO hi John cliche taken my call my pleasure Hey I just want you know you got to get both sides of this equation here yeah you know trump made a few mistakes but could not admit that they who made critical costly mistakes in the very early gonna December is irresponsible once again with that I I said who wasn't bright thank you need to elaborate I said well I I'm I'm I can only tell you the very things that and I did say I believe I said it clearly the very things that the president is accusing you of are the same things the president did I gave dates on the president as I recall I try to be very clear nothing about this it never became clear until the communist government China came clean on January twenty actually just so we know this on January twenty fourth the president said the United States greatly appreciates China's efforts and transparency on February seventh the president said he was not concerned about China's covering things up on February twenty sixty said China was working very hard on March fourth he said China had the situation under control of the president you know was doing with the World Health Organization was doing they were trying to cope with something I'm only saying now would you cut funding to the World Health Organization at a time when it's the only agency which brings the whole world together to try to deal with this problem the World Health Organization again Seles sleep at the switch and if they're really interested in international health care they would invite Taiwan to the party so we we sell slept the sleep of the switch I gave you the dates of Donald trump's statements so who gives a tanker and it wouldn't let us in their country they all U.

"So still making millions off of that hit record and everyone is doing the dance yeah yeah that's rich coming up from it well as for the moment rock and roll history at seven fifty five AM forty one right now David aiming on Tuesday morning details coming out about a new vaccine being developed by a pharmaceutical admit during a with some positive results apparently some very very hopeful results and the World Health Organization is coming under fire for its handling of the pandemic with both stories we're joined now by Jim route from Los Angeles morning Jim good morning let's start with that back scene because that is the good news all of this I bet it there's there's some bad news is good news and cautious news with it because even though researchers have this vaccine in the people they study they I think they give the vaccine to dozens of people few dozen people they took a lot of them and study the antibodies in them the response that patients did occur produce antibodies as much if not more than people who actually recover from covert nineteen those anybody's were able to attach itself to the virus and stop the virus from spreading so that's good news that that's ineffective vaccines and apparently so far anyway six the end that's record time I mean usually right now they would just sort of be in the beginning stages of it but they got this phase one human trials very quickly two more phases to go they got a increase the sample size the to make sure that it's is it the efficacy and safety factor is there on a larger scale but it could very well be there where would be a vaccine by January I mean that is zero at record time light there is lightning speed or speed of light it with the run the researchers said but the problem though still comes in production we'll have the production capabilities to mass produce millions if not billions of doses needed very quickly to get into the human population so even if there is a vaccine by January with current capabilities were told it would take another six months to have as many doses so it still may be a year from now next summer before actually have enough doses but that could be sped up to so there is good news on the vaccine for us in terms of the vaccine do we know how long immunity will last is it like the flu vaccine where we need to get a yearly or is it gonna last longer than a year that is really unclear at this point they just have this vaccine that they found can produce antibodies that can block the virus that's step one in those eight eight patients say they discover those antibodies they have to get to face to face through they have to see how long is anybody's last even know really patients who recovered how long does anybody's west the Roosevelt the the navy ship there are reports that some of the sailors who recovered in covert nineteen got it again so with it they're still a whole lot they don't know but this is still very encouraging all right quickly Jim let's move on to the World Health Organization coming under fire for its handling of the pandemic who's saying what just just hours before their big annual meeting the world health assembly they were given this this letter by side by a hundred countries most of their member states that demanding an independent comprehensive investigation into the time line into the response there are still many that say there were mistakes made there's too many and then the president sent a letter to the World Health Organization yesterday saying unless it makes sense substantive changes within thirty days the US reports monetary support maybe even its membership altogether it's it's is accusing China or the US organization of being very China centric so many countries want to know more about the timeline the one of the best occasion into the response of the WHO's putting a lot of pressure right now it could they could lose a lot of money if states start to pull support hi Jim always a

"Like you who donate to this NPR station it's morning edition from NPR news I'm Steve Inskeep and I'm no well king president trump sent a letter on Twitter to the head of the World Health Organization last night he demanded major substantive improvements that's a quote in the next thirty days or he threatened he will permanently stop funding for the WHL the agency is holding an annual convention right now virtually and peers global health and development correspondent Jason Beaubien has been following all this morning Jason good morning so what was in that letter that the president said it sent to the the WTO well you know it's a fairly typical letter from the trump administration very hard hitting it slamming China S. slamming the W. H. O. accusing the W. H. O. a for political reasons or for being unwilling to stand up to China down playing the initial significance of this outbreak he's asserting that as early as December thirtieth the W. H. L.'s office in Beijing knew how bad this outbreak was going to be and that there was a major public health concern in Wuhan you know some of the allegations the letter assumes that the value ratio has far more power than it actually does to investigate outbreaks he also claims that Taiwan told the W. H. O. on December thirty first that there was human to human transmission of the virus which wasn't exactly what time wanted said indefinitely had not been validated at that point but the big point here is that as the largest donor to the World Health Organization he's now threatening in the midst of this pandemic to cut off funding and he's threatening to pull the US out of the organization altogether saying that it's not serving America's interests and then this happened late last night has a W. H. O. responded at all I have not yet seen a response in the W. H. O. but I'm sure that we're going to get a more that today as this world health assembly continues continues and this is their annual meeting and they have them once a year the main focus this year as you would expect is covert nineteen right the U. S. and China have been fighting over who is responsible for what part of this pandemic are you seeing that play out at this meeting you're definitely seeing it play out of this meeting is there's sort of two tracks you've got all these different countries got representatives from a hundred ninety four nations coming on to this virtual meeting giving speeches talking about coming together as the world this is what most of the countries are are talking about like let's deal with this this this pandemic let's fight it together let's come up with solutions together and then you get China coming out and they are slamming the United States and then you get the United States responding and they're they're slamming back is really become this huge distraction at a time when all of these representatives are attempting to figure out how the WHO's gonna move forward and get this global crisis under control well one of their goals one of the goals of this meeting was something they were calling a people's vaccines so they're gonna get all the countries on the same page get a vaccine done because the U. S. and China are fighting is that looking likely it looks like you might still get an initiative that would support making any vaccine that does get developed a public good basically declaring that companies can't profit off of it that it would be made available universally and that is one of the big goals coming out of this is to try to figure out how the world can pulls resources together to start coming up with a vaccine rather than having different initiatives happening in in different parts of the world we do expect that there's going to be a resolution calling for consensus on this and calling for any vaccine that does get developed to be declared as I said a public good which would make it a nonprofit products that that wouldn't be a commercial one but will be more widely available throughout the world is there anything else real quick that the W. H. O. would like to show that it got done at this meeting I think they would like to show solidarity yes I think that that the fight between China and U. S. as to make that really hard okay and PRI's global health correspondent Jason Beaubien thanks Jason you're welcome nearly three thousand paratroopers from the eighty second airborne division left Fort Bragg earlier this year and went to the Middle East in response to one rest the pandemic delayed their return now the eighty second is coming back to a changed nation a change to military and a change to homecoming here's J. price of W. NC the soldiers are returning in waves Caroline fits water in her children come every time a plane full lands no matter that her husband will be on one of those planes for at least a few more days so today is the third installment of a I think we're dubbing it the pike field parades were just welcoming home the buses this is home coming in the era of coded nineteen families aren't allowed at the airfield so instead of the soldiers being released into a sea of hugs and kisses the board buses that had for a nearby parking lot over a handful of supporters wait but the buses aren't allowed to stop so both sides just wave and shout on a recent afternoon about thirty carloads of families and friends joined Fitzwater her two grown daughters and teenage son in the parking lot we've got all our ready made signs some of us have Christmas lights not me because I wasn't cool enough to figure out how to plug me but signs and all the families come out and lots of honking and yelling and just hearing the buses as they drive by soldiers who live with family you go to a drop off site where one family member is allowed to pick some up then they head home for a two week quarantine the rest are taken to a tent camp on base or designated barracks for their quarantine Fitzwater says it's important to come out for every plane so soldiers have at least some kind of homecoming ritual the first night I don't think they knew so it was dark and I think they were a little confused we did one two nights ago I think that one was amazing because they were out the windows hollering back and if you could tell that they were excited it was happening sometimes it's even hard I think to leave without a paratrooper in your car after welcoming them home but it is what we do this is our way of life it's not just being the wife of a paratrooper that striving she said but also being the mother to another her twenty year old daughter Houston who's standing beside her is in the eighty second Houston just got notice you'll be deploying soon for the Middle East her sister Dallas has news of Rome she's engaged to a sergeant who be on one of those buses in the next few days we decided when we get home we don't really want to wait any longer so that was that was going to get married soon as this is over his arm well as soon as he gets home and does this two week stint in the tent camp at the parking lot it isn't just family showing up all my guys are scattered across the brigade as their spaniel Attila watches captain Kevin Scruggs and his wife Norine attach a string of flags to the rescue V. some of the army engineers Scruggs commands were part of the deployment so I have a handful every single flight so we're out here every time they come back and make sure they all get home safely get a happy face suddenly a pick up truck turns into the parking lot followed by a line of white buses soldiers away from open bus windows and hold out cell phones for photos he was over in just a couple of minutes all the time it took the seven bosses to roll past military officials say the welcome demonstrates the kind of resilience that will give families through the pandemic they say

"world health assembly" Discussed on KQED Radio

"Assembly of global health leaders into a highly charged political moment the world's Ilana Gordon has been following the developments yet Marco it has been an especially political moment for the global health community to understand the context I just want to tell you about the role of the world health assembly in what it does so remember it's the WHL when they declare a global health emergency this is the group that allows them to do that so clearly this is a big year what what's different at the assembly this year a lot of people I've talked to were struck by who even showed up because usually again these are like ministers of health and this time there were a lot of world leaders so you have the president of France Emmanuel macron he addressed the assembly and spoke of the need for a strong World Health Organization not everyone all countries need to join together in this fight then there was the president of South Africa who spoke about how it's the poor who are suffering most from this virus resident Marco of South Korea talked about the need for transparency democracy and solidarity and then I welcome to speak next his Excellency president xi jin ping president of the people's Republic of China to begin with I wish to so Marco you're hearing a translator of China's president xi gene paying speaking he said that that solidarity and cooperation is the way that the people of the world can defeat this novel coronavirus he then pledged two billion dollars for the W. H. O. over the next two years some messages of investment in the W. H. O. also hearing some messages of solidarity it does lead me to a big question a lot of the elephant in the room or rather the absence of it where was the U. S. as you know earlier the United States announced it was pulling funding for the W. H. O. it was not present at the big kick off of the big coordinated collaboration to develop vaccines and treatments but US health and Human Services secretary Alex is our did address the assembly later in the day with a much sharper more critical time we must be Frank about one of the primary reasons this outbreak spun out of control there was a failure by this organization to obtain the information that the world needed and that failure cost many lives it sounds like sector is ours throwing shade on the World Health Organization there it sounds like it and you know he talked about the billions that if the US is investing in taking on this virus around the globe but that there really needs to be an independent investigation of the WHL and that at least one member state though he didn't say China by name try to conceal the outbreak so you know what's interesting too is that countries talked about their challenges in addressing the world health assembly as well but what didn't go mentioned in this instance is that the US does have the most cases months death right now C. gives a good picture of the politics at the world health assembly what is actually being reviewed there alone the assembly agreed to review a resolution at a later time about Taiwan and this is been a big political issue for the US and China the resolution would allow Taiwan to have an observational role at the world health assembly which would allow it to have a representative to speak because right now Taiwan's not recognized as a country are member states similar to how it is in the United Nations there was a lot of garden getting us started today on our cover nineteen coverage telling us about the world health assembly happening this year online a lot of thank you you're welcome America a Saudi aviation student who killed three sailors on a Florida navy base in December had ties to al Qaeda this was announced today by the FBI after investigators broke through encryption on the gunmen's iPhones Matthew Levitt is a director of counterterrorism and intelligence at the Washington institute of Matthew what evidence did the FBI revealed today about all kite is role in the shooting what their bill does that the FBI through its own painstaking work without getting help from apple have been able to break into the iPhone and basically confirm what A. Q. A. P. all cut in the repentance what already set they claimed responsibility for this attack two months afterwards they published a video including some in shots from his phone we now know they were using end to end encrypted applications and also money was recruited back in two thousand fifteen and ten percent basically to to get a position the real Saudi Air Force and we know that he was having conversations with al Qaeda associates overseas in fact the department justices today did that went right up until the attack itself so that's pretty significant okay it has been a little more quiet than say the Islamic state over the past three years it demonstrates their willingness to be patient as they continue to try and plot attacks targeting United States so lieutenant Muhammad awesome Ronnie was weaponized before you even arrive to Pensacola how is how is all kinda able to influence a Saudi military man to carry on an attack on American soil I'm sorry I know that he was radicalized even prior to joining the Saudi airforce in there lots of reasons why some consult your radio might be inclined to join al Qaida nobody and so on are there lots of Saudis in A. Q. A. P. even though the group is based primarily now in Yemen what's interesting is there kind of strategic vision to date willing to slowly take someone is radicalized convinced them to go get a job in the military also Ronnie was at multiple U. S. bases before ultimately coming up INTACH compensable imagine among the things the Tories already looking into is what kind of information might he have been collecting and sending back to all cut over the course of those years in those various places we saw the tension that grew between the US and Saudi Arabia after nine eleven should we be surprised that awesome Ronnie was able to do this at all kind was able to do this so what is surprising less so because the Saudi more so because the U. S. military does vetting of individuals before they can participate in these programs but it also underscores the fact that there's no such thing as a hundred percent successful counterterrorism we have people here in the United States American citizens who were radicalized whether it's to a jihadi ideology or some type of neo **** or other right wing or left wing ideology this the fact he was a Saudi citizen doesn't necessarily mean that the Saudis weren't doing what they could to prevent something like this from happening and one could argue that in years prior leading up to around nine eleven maybe they weren't doing as much they weren't just to underscore one of your takeaways Matthew you don't think this news is going to have much of an impact on U. S. Saudi relations I think there are so many reasons why US and Saudi interests coincide whether it's because of threats from Iran or other things I think that unless we find out that the Saudis turned a blind eye to somehow Saudi authorities knew about this or that Saudi authorities were knowingly helping someone this is something different than what we saw on nine eleven leading up to nine eleven Saudi Arabia have been financing all kinds of extremists idea ideological materials around the world there were Saudi diplomats who had been helpful to some of the hijackers though there's no evidence they actually knew about nine eleven in this case I don't think we're gonna find evidence like that at least we haven't so far Matthew Lovett the director of counterterrorism and intelligence at the Washington institute thanks for your time always a pleasure another piece of news that reminds us the world keeps turning a fugitive had been on the run for more than twenty five years even evading a five million dollar bounty on his head offered by the U. S. government but on Saturday Rwandan Phyllis young couple go was finally arrested by French police and Paris couple goes now eighty four he's accused of playing a major role in the nineteen ninety four genocide in Rwanda where some eight hundred thousand people were massacred the world's Halina Condi has more four years of Phyllis income that was rumored to be hiding out somewhere in East Africa supported by powerful allies in the business world senator Bremer is the chief prosecutor at the United Nations residual mechanism for criminal tribunals thirty seconds as always being one of the most wanted fugitives he has always been considered as being one of the masterminds in relation to the genocide cougar allegedly helped finance Rwanda's genocide by supporting the armed militia groups that murdered civilians but he is most known for bankrolling a hate filled radio station radio television on mute Colin I am looking up to them what you want a radio which was really calling for assassinations which was really yeah inciting people to commit genocide and to kill massively genocide survivors like Naftali a hi Shockey eight remember very well what people were saying on the radio about to seize like him because he is the biggest enemy of Wakanda over who took it so on so the video course it deadly hello yes the animals cockroaches he Shaqiri and his family were forced to flee to the forest about one hundred days later he and his two sisters where the family is only survivors at NC but as the ad that family member has a classy insult on asco is slated to do getting justice has been a long and slow process in nineteen ninety five the U. N. security council established the international criminal tribunal for Rwanda a convicted at dozens of people in a court in Tanzania but until now one of the most wanted criminals Phillies in Couva remained at large after so many years Rwandans like ice hockey A. began to lose hope I think that because of if if the government's the if it bleeds we each had no well deleted to Addis couple got the Rwanda tribunal closed in two thousand fifteen but outstanding cases like Cougars were directed to the international court that surge of Brammertz now leads he says he never gave up catching Kuga two years ago he assembled a task force to track him down in partnership with European authorities there were information from so called credible sources that he would be able one day that he would be in Kenya and whether cost cutting government and many other places Brammertz tracks Google from Germany then through Belgium and Luxembourg identifying people who may have helped him based on the analysis and phone profiles financially investigation and I don't want to go into details about it we concluded two months ago that it was very very likely that he was in a certain specific area in Paris working with French authorities they closed in on Cougars location and of course you know the rest of that the operation took place on Saturday and the operation was successful it's a twist of fate that one of the most wanted fugitives of the Rwandan genocide was arrested in France the relationship between the two countries has been tense for years marred by accusations that France had played a role in the genocide it was only last year that French president Emmanuel macron launched an investigation into his country's role steps like that haven't gone unnoticed by survivor is that enough tell he Shockey we had hit the C. class yes it is what is this what is that Google will be transferred to face trial in either Tanzania or the Hague that depends of course on travel restrictions related to the corona virus but Brammertz expects him to face trial in the next year four survivors like he Shockey a it's one step closer to what has been a long road to justice for the world I'm Holly McGhee Condi coming up a filmmaker goes inside and I see you in Italy and gets a rare up close glimpse of the pandemic at.

"Assembly meeting that is the decision making body of the World Health Organization meeting today for the first time since the corona virus pandemic began to discuss how to deal with covert nineteen of course meet virtually not in person the emergency is throwing up a host of issues of course whether more could have been done to hold the pandemic how vaccines should be developed and of course the thorny issue of Taiwan's non participation in the meeting former prime ministers and MPs from several countries have written a letter to the world health assembly urging it to allow Taiwan to attend one of them is former prime minister of Sweden called build who's currently co chair of the European Council on foreign relations relations and he joins us now will continue stay thank you you sign this letter urging Taiwan what for the for the organization to allow Taiwan end to give its expertise in Taiwan has done very well also this pandemic is that what you think is it crucial to hear from them that might be one of the reasons but I think the fundamental reason is that in a situation like this we need everyone on board this is not to talk to discriminate for political reasons against the one old update the teal administration or whatever this is something that affects all of the world that we should open our sport of the resources no one should be excluded so it's the is of the effectiveness of the global health response requires that everyone is that yeah how to leave politics out of this though it's almost impossible what what is your rallying call for people who Collins gets over that as we are seeing in the case of China and Taiwan it is difficult but the I mean the X. numbers of political battles to be fought in the world today but they should be for dance where the main battle that should be followed by the world health assembly is the battle against in this case the pandemic that we are in the middle if if you drag all sold so politically complex again they're all Knowles China issues of Palestine either been leased into the world health assembly then nothing will be done I would be stuck with the virus spread so I think health issues here should suit as far as his also will be kept isolated from these these particular things so this particular conference we're hearing of the E. you say we need United's response to this crisis I meant to sort of drill down into the more granular detail about what do you want to hit one of the specifics of how Europe can join together to fight it going forward when Tyrod is one nation it is to say about the big issues are because what do you do with accidents how do you develop them and how do you make certain when they're produced that they also have it available to everyone everywhere and that's not an easy one but you have to start with ambition to do it like that and I think that would be fairly controversial then of course you have the issue that's going to be debated as well whether you if you try to learn the lessons of this particular why did it happen why didn't we succeed in stopping this endemic at an early stage I mean there are lessons to be learnt that might be painful for Saddam not only churned out by the way that very to come out of this with much lower and I have to say but those lessons have to be there in order to be able to meet the next pandemic that might come I don't know what happened but this is not the lost in your ministry so I think it's important that the world health assembly moves forward on that as well in accordance with what I understand the U. has proposed three difficult when you have countries like America saying well we're not we're reducing all begin off funding to the to the World Health Organization and also president trump and turning it into a competition a race to find the vaccine without American first approach what will you be saying to the center in the meeting over the next couple of days I would be saying to the Americans sold to everyone else having that particular we don't know who will make the breakthrough on the vaccines it is not in America and we have a position where everyone's really grabs it that America might be lost the getting the vaccine say that the vaccine is developed in India or in China or in Sweden or the UK or whatever first then the Americans should have access to this world but evidently the America first attitude takes America straight I would say is not America first not your post is the vaccine first it is saving lives everywhere that should be the priority nothing happens I am making it free to all presumably would be a priority as well because we have seen the people who come from the poorest backgrounds being the worst affected by this yeah as free as possible that's tricky they're all ordered it efforts under way as you are aware of by the U. and others in order to mobilize the Jutra sources billions of billions that are going to be necessary in order to sort of ramp up production when we ought that particular states and ensure that there is some sort of distribution that is seen as reason without cost the world at that lots of details to be worked out on that needless to say but I think the principal is very important to get established early on the world health assembly is clearly the place where where that must be done call builds for prime minister's region and county co chair of the European Council on foreign relations thank you for joining us well that's the big picture let's set gets a sort of a close up picture from Italy at ten weeks after imposing the world's first national lockdown of the corona virus pandemic that's a national lockdown Italy is moving to the next phase of its re opening its now shops restaurants headdresses museums also socially distance church services as well almost thirty two thousand people of course have died the daily death toll is now the lowest since the lockdown was imposed marking this moment in Milan

message on anything you hit the program notes and I love to get your messages this is the number you need plus full full seventy seven eighty six twenty fifty eighty five right to start with a little bit of an overview in a couple of countries you're going to hear in a moment from Brazil a very vivid picture from stockpile of the largest city what it's actually like working in a hospital at the center of one of the hot spots of coronavirus that set the story which is dominating the news you're also going to hear now from the carribean and the carribean islands where prompt action from public health authorities appears to have limited the impact of coded nineteen in stark contrast to the situation in Brazil Cuba of course always praised and priding itself greatly on its commitment to medical care as kept the number of cases below two thousand it does look like a bit of a success story repeated across the island nations of the region across the twenty nations just eighty four deaths have been registered from corona virus by last week will ground reports on what the carribean might have done right on coated ninety it's new new shoes at the epidemiology the two person team of Cuban medics trudges through the streets of San Jose village in my a banking group province outside Havana going door to door with a clipboard another medicament wild repeats the government's simple message via megaphone don't leave home unless it's strictly necessary he says and lists the symptoms of corona virus one more time well when the team arrived at home and the response is often the same yes everyone in the family is indoors says this woman followed by no no one is feeding on well the survey helps the authorities to build a full page of the state of health in the town with any anomalies noted down unlimited over the following days such rudimentary street level research is one of the reasons Cuba has succeeded in keeping the Kashmir nineteen outbreak within the capacity of its health care system Betty eighty deaths so far and only one thousand eight hundred confirmed cases in total he looked happy I think I think I mean I don't know me as well what's happening here is the same in every corner of Cuba says Dr Sebasti N. minutes says the family doctor in San Jose we've been running a public information campaign chats to every family visits to the work place and so on to curb the spread of this virus and teach your Bahamas Barbados Jamaica Trinidad the Cuban government is well known for its emphasis on health care but it's been a similar story of keeping the pandemic of bay in the rest of the carribean and professor Clive Landis heads up the code nineteen task force at the university of the West Indies when the first cases came the leaders acted very decisively so by and large all of those countries responded within a week or two of each other with lockdowns almost in all cases before the first death and in some cases before the first case I don't like crowing but there's been a lot less illness and death than we had imagined might happen to Joyce and John leads coffer the carribean public health agency the other thing for me that is successful is the understanding of the general topic of what is happening and what their role should be and I think across the carribean persons have paid attention and they have understood what are the imperatives for saving life so far the caravan has a strong track record in disaster preparedness for example in late two thousand and seventeen when hurricane Irma wreaked havoc across the region the carribean disaster and emergency management agency is a strong and well organized regional body well the corona virus isn't a hurricane or an earthquake there were parallels in the planning process which should serve the region well however although the number of fatalities from corona viruses being alive the region must now begin to plan for a cautious re opening one of fourteen the threat of a second way no where in the world this is dependent on tourism is the carribean the white sands of Antigua Barbados so Trinidad and Tobago sound an inviting prospect during a global log down the caravan is still trying to rebuild the industry after the devastating hurricanes of two thousand and seventeen faces a difficult balancing act the tourism sector must return to business the regional governments must ensure they don't overwhelm that fragile health care systems in the process Dr Joyce and Joan of the carribean public health agency is well aware that the hardest part of her job still lies ahead talk to me in a month and see if I am just as happy as coming out of this first wave and also trying to have a foundation for economic viability while saving life this is the hardest challenge of my career will drones with an overview of how the coping in the caravan and Cuba in particular let's see what's going on in Brazil where president travels and all right is still meeting his supporters in defiance of distancing advice yes from his own government he's firmly in the camp of those who want to keep the economy open at the same time the mayor of the country's largest city sao Paulo is warning the health system could collapse under the pressure of infections which are of course rising someone at the heart of the pandemic is professor Paolo some of the vet he is professor of pathology at the university of some power works in the teaching hospital that and he's currently engaged in the grim business of doing autopsies of covert nineteen fatalities that means that he has pretty much the most vivid picture possible of the outline of the outbreak in Brazil's largest city and who's being affected if we don't increase the isolation and we have a strict reduction off commercial work cheap it is this activity is already decreased but not in Torpoint jet can prevent the collapse of the system that is imminent in the next fifteen days so we decide that we're fate in this next fifteen days in order to see if we can support which you can provide medical assistance so basically what you need is you need a lockdown of some severity yes I think we have to to reach the lockdown I don't know if this will happen are you looking to have reference hospital in St Paul with the hospital of the universal symbol that this dedicated nine hundred beds took of it nineteen at our intensive care unit is it was a standard for one hundred beds to two hundred and then you are moving to three hundred this week and I do autopsies of the patients that died and I talk the families and relatives to ask permission for doing the autopsy and also to provide the feedback on what's happened in talking with the families everybody that die without exception our preacher where do we use because they are facing but economic resilience of the families so in the neighborhoods of some follow the more far in that the poorer segments of the city social isolation is quite impossible what you're saying professor is the profile of the people who are dying of people who are exposed through walk through market trading through public transport it's people who are forced through economic reasons to be face to face with other people yes so they have to decide what they do is since we don't have a full social support in order to allow those people to so far to decide what to have to do and the other for elderly people for instance even day remain at homes there are five people in the family is that they have to wheel Walt and from the streets they bring insight dividers that Gorbachev signed and also we are experiencing or are experiencing Latin America especially some fall with Brazil instead the age is not a defect of aging is not so important this was reported in Europe for instance now that's very interesting because so what is the crucial factor the determining factor in your experience basically and poverty and poverty is not economical depreciation per se but the capacity of death those people have to control their chronic health conditions the control for the perturbation the control of diabetes so the risk of dying some of the digestive mortality rate rise up to six times depending on his own on the territory meaning that the zip code is perhaps more important than the genetic code in our case so it's a killer combination of where people live that rate of poverty and there of the city this is what you are seeing in the people that your true yes yes indeed I think that since on polo has good health data so you have job dresses and everything what is experiencing an unnatural extra ecological experiment in which you will see that they are important determinants of the risk of severity.

You literally just like randomly buying in game items and typically games have these things that you purchase them. And then you keep buying them over and over and over again until you find the item you want inside the box, or at least some some people do that. Right.
