"I remember very, very distinctly that there was a time when there was a travel ban from Iran, even though there were more confirmed cases in Italy and there was no travel ban from Italy. And you just mentioned a bunch of other countries where the new variant has been identified and as far as I know there's no travel bans from every single one of those countries, which tells you that the reaction is always to blame the messenger. It's like exactly what you said that South Africa it might not even have originated in South Africa. They were the first to identify it, right? And so I think that this travel bans can be very dangerous because it can incentivize countries in the future from identifying new strands because they're probably going to think, okay, this will be a travel ban for my country, which has economic implications for them. Two, I think that it will, it makes people feel like you're safe. Like, okay, well, they're not letting people in from this country, where it originated, even though it didn't necessarily originate there. And I think it makes people feel safe when they shouldn't. Really, if we want to be safe, we know the answer. We know that it's not travel Vance at save the day. It's vaccines. So people and Chastain and testing. So people should continue to get vaccinated should get the booster if they are eligible to get the booster and I think that that brings me to my final point on this, which is that what this really shows to me is that vaccination efforts have to be viewed as a global effort. Because you mentioned sort of low vaccination rates in the continent of Africa. And here's the thing. Rich countries have a responsibility to help countries with less resources. Especially when things when it comes to things like vaccines because we know that if there is a new variant somewhere else around the world, it's going to end up in the United States. So like selfishly, we should want to help other countries get their vaccination rates up because and it's not me saying this. It's like medical experts who have said this, as long as there is a low rate of vaccination around the world, there's going to be new variants. And they're going to be more aggressive. They're going to be more infectious. So yeah, the answer to all of this really just comes down to vaccinations testing. And these travel bans really don't do anything and I'm really disappointed that the United States is following suit and also issued a travel ban because we know from the last administration that they don't do anything to stop the spread. Well, and that once the virus is known, it's probably already here. And so, you know, I think that I think that's such a good point. Hopefully, I mean, it looks like word from the administration is that this is hopefully very temporary move and they just wanted to put the ban in place to allow the U.S. to prepare for a Macron, which I guess means double down on vaccination efforts..

"A number of questions As the weather turns colder and we plan more holiday gatherings with people for more let's turn to The Washington Post Joel akin bike this morning on what we know right now about this first case Well we know that it's apparently a mild case and it's important to realize that this is totally expected because we live in a world that's very connected We have international flights The fact that it is here doesn't tell us a lot about the crucial question which is how transmissible is compared to Delta If delta is still able to out compete over cron it's going to pose less of a threat but we just don't know that yet is too early We don't have enough cases And of course does it cause more serious illness There's no evidence of that yet But we know very little about the California case Are there places where a Macron has reared its head where people are suffering severe consequences I mean if they don't have vaccines trying to get an idea if we know how vaccines are affected by this So that's the key question This variant it really surprised the scientists that we've talked to because it has at least 37 mutations just on the spike protein that's on the surface of the virus And some of them have been pretty well studied before in other variants but they've never seen so many altogether And these mutations many of them are associated with escape from immunity IE the antibodies that you have either from vaccine or from an infection that you've recovered from they don't neutralize the virus as well And so that has been seen in the beta variants we've seen in the gamma variant But they've never seen so many of them in one variant before And that's why everyone kind of went holy cow What is this thing And they don't really know exactly where it came from We know it's transmissible person to person pretty efficiently because there was a huge rapid outbreak in South Africa But again fortunately the South African officials very quickly informed the world about this even before they were very many cases So people were able to quickly come up with ways to study this in the lab that steps ongoing that will be a couple of weeks before we can answer the question of does this thing have the ability to allude vaccines at all or a little bit And we'll just have to wait and see The Washington Post Joel arkin bark.

"Very few people have covered coronavirus the political implications epidemiologic ones Better than you you've been a very sober mind on this And of course that's made you a target You've written a few great books on in Fauci and bargain and others You know is this something like Groundhog Day again with a crime here I mean how many times are we gonna go through this It's the same cycle Steve over and over again A new variant emerges by the way which happens with respiratory viruses often This is nothing unusual right We don't get the data We're not sure what the R nought is the fatality rate the case fatality rate the infection but we don't know what even The media goes crazy gets everybody losing their minds Draconian lockdowns ensue none of it works Everything kind of dies down but there you go boom another variant appears I mean why not summing that up accurately You are summing it up accurately And what's particular sinister about this one there's actually a report out in just the last hour that shows that this new variant was actually detected in Europe that they've actually traced it to Europe weeks ago And it was just not reported to the medical community or to the world until the medical community in South Africa flagged it that it was brought to them actually And they're the ones that flagged it And then they got repaid of course by being quarantined from the rest of the world what's really sinister about this is if you look at the timing of this you know it does seem to coincide right around the moment that South Africa said to the WHO and to Pfizer that they were not going to sign up for their recurring every 6 months three months 90 days We don't know yet We don't even know what fully vaccinated means now because we don't know how many times we have to keep boost during you It is kind of funny that shortly after they said we're not going to do that We're going to opt out of that Shortly thereafter lo and behold here is this new variant from South Africa and they need to be cordoned off and quarantined from the rest of the world Then there have been two constants Since this began on March 16th 2020 there have been two constants Number one whatever you're not allowed to talk about right now on Facebook or Twitter will be proven true in 3.9 months later That's number one Number two there can be no control groups Because control groups give us observational truth They bring us to objective realities okay And so that's why we don't have random controlled studies on masks That's why they don't want last year We had to ignore Sweden when they didn't lock down and everybody else did We went from being told for 20 years by left the blue check marks we got to be like Sweden to now they're like Sweden rectum barely knew I don't even know where to tell the sweetness It's like okay And then now it's the same thing on vaccine This is why everybody has to get even the naturally immune like me I had COVID back in May It was awful for about a day and a half It felt like there was a entire iron on my chest okay But now I have natural immunity No there can be no control group that shows that maybe our vaccines don't work or have waning efficacy or lo and behold might even be causing three antibody dependent enhancement the variants to become worse And so all of this has been about no control group and things that you are not permitted to say until certain times Those are things that are not about health and they're about power and control Those are authoritarian

Do you remember what he said about president Trump? Who did the same thing? President Trump trying to protect Americans from COVID. This is a tweet from Joe Biden. Trump further diminished the U.S. and the eyes of the world by expanding his travel ban. This new African ban Biden said hell of a difference. In March of 2020, is designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate to the United States. It's a disgrace, and we can not let him succeed. Yeah, that's what Biden said last year and now he's turned around and he's banned, travel from an African nation.

"That allow planners to communicate notre day in the past but more and more you can be able to communicate with different types of audiences from the same sort of platforms portals in this really providing enhancing towards planners can and cannot do to to drive the different futures that we're hoping for so i was pointing to for example being able to visualization with its dues different types of data to project trends. But also just to understand what you're doing but also to speak to different audiences into connect them to the different types of future. We are achieving because yes such developments would only be achieved by by pulling pulling all these actors together to drive in the same direction and previously or on this highly previously. But even in the we we tend to see cities at the walk soul a very small number of people but not necessarily for also planning also has to contend with the with the nature in which about development happens sometimes tends to not being -clusive so it's not necessarily inclusive growth and and planners don't just happen and when as people planners really being general but i'm trying to find to ease that planning as to be between sometimes conflicting or contradictory expectations of people and that becomes a very complex pace. That's unfortunate i mean. Yeah it's how do you mediate the bosses or the different needs of people that sometimes can actually be pulling defender action. Figures expecting similar cities to reach mega city status in the near future. Is it too late to implement effective city growth for those cities. And how can they adapt and we pay for what is to call from the discussion. On african abundance -sition we can see that. africa's growth or the growth of urban areas in africa is going to number one is going to drive most of the organization for the next few decades so that is an interesting point to to to to to sort of book. The fact that most of this growth will be happening within this region in the next two decades but also this growth is happening at an unprecedented rate so it is not like any growth. That has been seen anywhere else. I think i believe and badly this This growth is so. We normally focused on the mega mega-cities so africa has i think three megacities also by now which is a population of ten million about but this is projected to grow. But i'm more in in most significant growth is also going to happen in his. Call the small and medium-sized cities secondary towns which have a smaller population of two hundred and fifty to three hundred pounds and at the moment but these are going to grow at is multiple projects in almost five hundred of these cities exists within the continental ready and is going to drive most of this growth in future so when we think about kind of an issue we should just focus on the huge ten million class cities but on all these other small areas that are going to that already here but that are going to be the next few decades and how do we begin to generate visual. How described can be can be organized such that then drives more equitable -sition inclusive from abundance vision in the continent. So it's not too late. I believe because it's never too late and also because as much as it's a binding last is also a lot of changes happened. Globally that we can tap into sort of leapfrog some of the challenges that the other cities went through. And this is This is i think exciting types to be to be doing any kind of planning in any of these towns because we do have the opportunity to capitalize all the lesson than all the lessons that have been launched from the other cities around the world. We can launch from them and begin to adopt some of these lessons for us specific context. That is very unique. So then how can we. I think the question that you asked that question. I can turn back to you into my fellow colleagues and planners how can we adopt all the skills that we have land to create a to produce different types of cities in future for containment than exhibiting opportunity. Believe in it can twitch to see what to happen. We don't have all the answers to daily cannot say that this is what the future will look like a twenty again as we can we can be able to use it tools and technologies at the present to project the kinds of growth. We can anticipate and and using some of these tools to be able to mediate a sort of more equitable sustainable future for for the continent..

She's a town planner and researcher on african cities with a particular focus on the role of policy in shaping urban few just in africa meriem. Welcome give us a brief introduction to your background and your academic interests of originally from nairobi kenya and now bit state joins us bikes african. So i'm trained as a town planner from the university of nairobi in kenya. And then i came here to join his bug so up in here for a few years on through expanding my knowledge and research on cities. That's my background. In academic interests really have been on not just town planning this of projects of city building and especially how public sector planning and policymaking trying to achieve beto aben species for for all who live in it. So it's it's a research policy. Research on urban growth in the different dynamics that shape to development especially in africa in my focused in has been the two cities are of lived. In which is narrow be enjoyment on the topic of preparing for future cities. What is getting growth. This proactive town planning in city management. In which countries have you seen success in africa internationally from the data on african abundance which is sort of projected to drive most of the evidence in the next few decades it it. It looks like we are going to have a lot of cities and mega-cities in africa. Presently we have maybe. Three mega-cities bug is projected to grow in the next few decades but they abandoned in africa is also being driven from the smaller towns in secondary cities that have a population of say quarter million and most of ny liberal most of the discussions are about how this growth to be managed and traditionally. We have this sort of formal proactive systems. Town planning that attempt to prepare setup the rules of about how it is to grow before the city's urbanites but what you've been observing boy especially in african towns and cities more organic formal growth and development that is known necessarily planned which then creates this economy. Were to sit out for more planned a good city or ideal city and informal and planned by the to need to correct and i think what we can begin to look at his visceral ganic formal Growth and abundance is really what has driven most of the expansion of the cities in africa. And how do we use the formal tools that are supposed to prepare these spaces twin state adopts the cities that we have now so that we can have a more equitable accessible or organized over abundance -sition growth because as much as the organic is what we see it's not necessarily the most ideal and there are a lot of challenges this Patterns of growth. Come with that need to be addressed by the formal systems of planning so the question is how do how do we use a formal tools and systems to adopt this sort of less organized organics forms to create a sort of abundance space that is equitable especially and accessible to all residents. I wouldn't want to point to any city at the moment. But i do think that this is a conversation that will be having ball across african cities and in terms of nissan's sharing. Would you say organic growth is a good idea for african countries and cities and way has been the standard practice in africa. The organic city. That appears in plan to disorganized. Israeli something that has been pulled together by the energy of households and following just trying to get a foothold in the city. And when you try to transition these when you try to point that sort of by the bunnies issue that needs correcting then the systems through which we try to intervene. Sometimes end up disrupting the lives of civilians. We are trying to To help so pointing to it. As a good or bad. I think would be a contested idea. Something that we can continue to think about. But what's what maybe a more useful question is. How do we the picture that this'll organic forms of organization i incorporated into what we consider to be the rest of the of a functional plan efficient city that we're trying to plan for what happens to town planning policies who informs them. We implements them. Why policies always reach the goals in wives the need for improved policies. So in my my research on policy implementation we really find that the act of implementation requires the coordinated actions of remaining departments in institutions working together. So and this is one of the conceptions. We have with consider when when we talk about plans. Obscenely policies are not being achieved so that policy implementation gap that is normally very common literature and india analyses in discussion general. But when you come to really at park how policies a demented you find that for example something as simple as upgrading it fall settlement or improving a neighborhood that has not been provided with services requires the coordination of private sector public sector the channeling by budgets and resources to make sure that the plans that we make what paper can be made in a few years yeah in a few decades without necessarily disrupting the lives of the residents who repair and policy then becomes less about what to put on paper in more about how the different agencies are expected to gabba something walk together to make sure that this is achieved in the end so yeah it turns out to be more of a coordination problem or coordination glitch across the different departments are policies. Take very long to implement and things change so it's coordination but also how do you adjust you. Your goals in uc stems in means of implementation as you try to drive towards that agenda the on challenges while these things that no-one facility management success not in place for instance data collection existed technology lack of digital property registers silos and governments and funding and much. More so yeah narrowing it down again. Just to to built involvement typing. We estimate so that coordination problem or the sort silo based structure that we have sort of organized most of most government agencies. Not just here but across across the world. And how do you begin to breakdown. The silence to walk together in an integrated fashion for delivery from plans of projects of strategies. We have been seeing a lot of headway when it comes to for example the integrated planning that we have been seeing for example here but also the opening up different beta systems or technologies that i use within such department for example to understand how things are achieved but new begin to coordinate for example to look at On the land use which is like two of the two big things not well-coordinated land use planning and development and economic strategies or uplifting a iria residential space so if you begin to.
