As it rips through the state, making it Right here where we're at one of the world's hot spots. That's not a good distinction, either. And so we've asked A researcher physician author to Join US. Dr Cast I groom is joining us. He is a nutritional physician author of 24 books on health and wellness.

Great timing, I guess for the state and for all your Your loving and desirous listeners We've can We have some breaking news for them and let's get right into that. The's the wild spice oil therapy preventing Cova 19 case transmission in 50 healthcare words phenomenal. Take it from there. Well, we have Dunn the study before on active cases of covert, But this was the concern was the physical therapists and the nurses who did not get it and did not want to get it, but yet are on the front line in Chicago. So what we did Wass We did some novelty things. We've recommended the Sinus oregano spray, which is clothed but oil, regular oil Bailey oil, and I think sage oil It's in a sailing base, but they would inject that directly up each nostril several times a day, You know, because they've got all the P P E on by the way on the shields as well. Right, But you can't. You can't viruses. They're so small or whatever these passages have been a bacteria easily. It could slip through the cracks, you know? And they also used another novelty, which was a wild oregano Bailey spray, which is extremely virus idol, extremely bacteria, Seidel and that is my saliva spray that they would, they would missed over there pp. Either math or plexiglass shield their chest. And they would inhale that also buy and the second thing they did with it. If they got a scratchy throat or a dry cough, which are passed eggnog Mang of Na ge Catholic magmatic of this disease, they would spray the back of their throat multiple times. So they're getting direct contact in the mice allies form that's direct absorption through the membranes, and there's no way these passages could survive. With those kinds of spices. An immediate immediate absorption through the milk goes up. Uh, so I'm not taking any chances at all with these practitioner with these health, health care workers. The third thing they did was there was there's a novel supplement with oregano, cumin on DH, sage and cinnamon oils, and that's called a rigorous You and I are fans of that They actually took that product by mouth. Twice a day. Most of them. But the biggest thing was the Sinus spray and the use of Ah sterilizing missed. Kind of opposite of what we do. We take our things. We take our vitamins C. We take our regular They did it differently. 50 health care workers did not get sick, and some of them were Permanently exposed to covert 19 and tested negative because of this protective gear.

Just being around somebody is somebody talking to you. You can get into your system pretty quickly. 100 model you know, 100 different Viruses. And then, of course, a cough. Even Maura, I think it goes up to 500 then up over 1000 of somebody sneezes in that same area. The amount of viral load is just exponential at that point in time, and course the health care workers have the greatest exposure, as you well know is everybody recognizes the greatest exposure because they're around sick people all day every day and are in the trenches trying to help people out. We need to do something to protect them and at the same time This is a beautiful thing learning about it. We can protect the general

Coronavirus: How countries across the globe are responding
"And we are now the epicenter of this outbreak does how this virus a fact here people here in America look any different to you than what it has done in the rest of the world no this is a pretty vicious viral virus and everywhere has appeared it's because great numbers of people to die and it's also spread very easily in communities so what's happening in the U. S. has happened around the world H. what has been different is there strategies to contain the virus from what you're saying it sounds like you're suggesting a strategy to contain has not worked in the White House and said now they're just trying to mitigate it well the strategy works if it started early and if it's continued even during a time when there are many cases the objective is to identify people who are infected either those who are sick or those who are contacting those people who are sick and then to isolate those people and stop transmission well at the same time having other measures such as physical distancing and means to keep people from getting too close together it sounds like what you're describing is what South Korea has done well that's right Singapore South Korea and Hong Kong have all begun a strategy very early to contain the outbreak and they've tried to contain that outbreak with minimal disruption in their daily lives there's a very important issue in all of these countries and that is the people clearly understand how to protect themselves and how to protect others they've been through the sars outbreak they know that they can stop this outbreak and they're working very hard to do that so that's one of their differences they've had sars outbreaks before they have learned how to not only stop transmission but also to stock up their hospital so they're able to take people when they do become sick would it be too early to lift some of the restrictions here in the United States as a medical professional what is your opinion I'm not asking about the politics well at the World Health Organization we've been discussing with a group of people how best this outbreak can be stopped and at the same time how the lockdown procedures can be lifted and the general consensus is that it depends on the risk assessment in the country China has already begun to unlock its heavy industrial sector and also it's small business sector and they're watching very closely to make sure the transmission doesn't increase as a result that's what other countries need to do as well we need to understand where the majority of transmission is occurring and then they need to keep those sectors lockdown most while unlocking the sectors where transmission is less important and having measures in place to stop transmission should begin to increase again there was a team of British doctors who wrote this week if that is the one of the signs of exposure to the virus is loss of taste and smell is that an indicator should Americans be looking out for that it certainly has been an indicator in the UK and in many other countries and I'm sure that in U. S. it will be the same manifesting missions so yes lots of Dennis has been a characteristic in some populations but the most reliable means of determining whether or not one is infected she is a fever and a persistent dry cough do you have any reason to believe that once someone is infected that they then become immune or do you think this virus will hit in waves again and again you know other current viruses don't develop long term immunity people can get infected with those current of viruses that cause common colds on a regular basis so it's very important that the immune response to this organism be studied it's too early to say for sure hopefully there will be a solid immunity develops so the vaccines can be developed that will be effective and other means of prevention will be possible well if there's some talk about people in developing immunity and therefore but allowing them to go back into society you're saying it's not clear yet if we can say that's a safe method you talked about the fact that this was transferred from the animal kingdom into humans and then now spread human to human what animals continue spreading this disease or was this a one time transmission as far as it is understood this was a one time episode where any animal in nature or even back in nature because this virus is very close to viruses in bats infected human and that human then infected others and there was some mass events in the city of Wuhan where many many different people were infected at the same time and sent off chains of transmission among their contacts and they traveled internationally and also within China China shut its borders to foreigners yesterday would you advise other countries to do the same it has to be a risk based assessment to really understand where their borders need to be closed China has closed its borders because it now has more infections coming from outside China then within China itself at least at present and so did they decided that they want to stop this by actually closing their borders and putting people who should come in if they're infected in quarantine should the Chinese Communist Party has shared more information about this virus and done it sooner they call me the government in China has shared information very friendly with the World Health Organization and also with others there are many published articles from Chinese investigators who have been put out on many different medical journals in front of the payroll so that everybody can understand what's going on so there's been a today quite a free sharing of information among countries and from countries
No, The Coronavirus Isn't Another Flu
"You're listening to shortwave from NPR. Madison Here with NPR science reporter paying long. Hey Ping Hey Mattie. How's life working at home for you? Hang Well Gladiolas Mattie good to hear your voice It's it's all right. You know I am Trying to work right next reconstructions and right now you might be able to hear a little bit of that noise in the background. I I do have a little pillow. Fort here to help so from my closet to your pillow for today. We're GONNA talk about an idea that's been in the air a lot lately that the krona virus is basically no worse than the flu. Thirty six thousand deaths a year. People Die Thirty six from the flu. But we've never closed down the country for the flu so you say to yourself. What is this all about? That was the president on Tuesday of this week. And so the estimated death toll last flu season in the US was about thirty. Four thousand people in experts say it can range from around twelve thousand deaths year to sixty one thousand deaths a year. By contrast the Krona virus has killed one thousand one hundred and twenty four people in the US. That's as of Thursday when we're taping this according to a Johns Hopkins Count but there is a problem with comparing the two diseases in this way especially at this point in time. Yeah it's tree. Mattie and one of the reasons is that our healthcare system is set up to deal with the flu every year. But what? It's not set up for is to deal with the current events on top of the flu. And so yeah like on purely rod numbers. More people have died from flu this year. But there is a lot of science and data that we've learned in the past three months and it suggests that the corona virus is not only a more dangerous disease. It's one that could hurt more people if it spreads unchecked. So this episode. We'll talk about that. Science and data how the Krona virus differs from the flu and why it could emphasis on could be even more dangerous to public health. Okay paying like we all do with these current virus updates. We need to be clear that the information in this episode is based on what we know right now as of March twenty six and most of what we're talking about today are estimates based on information. That's still evolving. Yeah so let's start with some symptoms flu versus Corona Virus. So this is one of the things that makes containing this illness so tricky. The most frequent symptoms of corona virus are fever dry cough fatigue and shortness of breath and those show up in both corona virus. The flu and people can also get diarrhea. But that's pretty rare and it's also something that can happened with flu and that's all information from the World Health Organization and of course it's very possible that there are symptoms out there that we haven't identified yet so for example. There's been some talk about people with Corona virus. Losing their sense of taste But that hasn't really been proven. Yeah right and of course. A huge concern is people who can pass this fires onto someone else without even knowing that they have it. Yes so let's talk about that. Let's talk about transmission so basically how flu and Crow virus passed from one person to another so flu and current a virus or both ought to be spread mainly through close contact with other people who have it so you can kiss them or they can coffin you and the droplets that come out of their noses and mouths can get into your nose and your mouth and make you sick. So that's why CD's recommending keeping a physical distance of about six feet away from other people right now right right but there is one big difference. And that's the flu can be transmitted through what we call. Airborne transmission people can offer sneeze in a room and then other people can come in and breathe in like super tiny particles of virus and get sick and obviously that type of transmission can be really hard to protect against exactly and while public health officials have said they don't think that's what's going on with occur virus community so far they are still trying to figure that out. Okay Ping so. Let's talk about how many people one person can in fact figuring that out is part of figuring how contagious diseases. There's some numbers that have been reported on the lot even seeing them in the news. But we're going to put some of that. Sweet sweet shortwave nuance in there for you. Yes shortwave where caveats are very welcome. Always okay so matty. If you look at the data from China it looks like each person. Infected WITH CORONA VIRUS. Seems to give it to two or two and a half other people on average and that is higher than the flu so person with flu only spreads it to about one point. Three other people and again that's on average. Yeah and we have to be really careful with those numbers how many people one person will infect is this average based on an equation and for Corona virus a lot of the factors that go into that equation. Like how long? Somebody's contagious. How much virus it takes to get. People sick are still unknown so that to two point five number is a rough number and it is extremely likely that that number will change for better or for worse right yeah and this one was calculated again looking at populations in China not the US and things like weather. People ride crowded subway to get around or whether cheek kissing is a common greeting. You know things like how people behave. And how many people come in contact with that can change that number. And that's why social distancing is so key right now all that being said today Dr Anthony Voucher one of the top public health officials in this country told Steph curry and NBA Point Guard. Because that's the world we live in now is much more transmissible than the flu in part of that has to do with one of the most important and honestly scary things about the corona virus that people can be contagious before they have symptoms so before they themselves. No they're sick. This also happens with the flu. But it's only for about a day right. That's what we were just mentioning that. He and with Corona virus seems like people can walk around for longer not knowing that they're sick and potentially getting other people sick so we still don't know a lot about this yet but one study looking at a bunch of provinces in China found that about thirteen percent of their cases were likely caused by people spreading the corona virus to others before they started coughing or having a fever or getting achey. Yeah and what's really wild about it and I've only seen this in this one study. Is that some of the people who got infected had symptoms before the person that infected them so it would be like if I was contagious. And I didn't know and I came to work and infected you and you had symptoms before I ever done and if you think about it. Mattie from a public health perspective so hard to deal with it's part of the reason why some people are really advocating for testing a lot of people who may have been exposed to corona. And not just the symptomatic ones. So let's talk about when you do get sick enough to go to the hospital. There's some evidence based on data from China that patients wind up in the hospital with Corona Virus. Than when it comes to the flu right it looks like about twenty percent of patients with cove in nineteen. Get seriously ill enough to be sent to the hospital. And that's about ten times the rate for flu. Here's Parker Hudson and epidemiologist at University of Texas at Austin Del Medical School where it's particularly concerning are the number of people who are progressing to need hospital level care and then eventually critical care and who are dying especially the extremes of age and we also have some data from China from Wuhan about how long people with the krona virus need to stay in the hospital. Once they wind up there. Yeah so based on information from Han in January the average hospital stay is eleven days for Corona Virus. And that's compared with five or six days for an average flu case. And when you have a patient using a hospital bed for that length of time. That's the bad that can't go to a flu. Patient or someone with a heart condition or someone in a car accident suggest because this is a new disease for our healthcare system. It doesn't mean that all the other reasons people end up in the hospital usually just magically go. Yeah and not only that based on the stories we've been hearing from Er Doctors Hospital. Nurses caring for Corona virus. Species takes a lot of work yet. It's true so an expert at the world. Health Organization says that taking care of intensive really unwell corona virus patients. It can take two to three medical staff at one time all in protective gear for hours and hours and that is super social work. And don't even get me started on the amount of disposable gloves masks and gowns that takes because we've all been hearing about that shortage and it's a whole separate
Is the Sudden Loss of Taste and Smell A Symptom of Covid-19?
"Might be a new indicator that you have caught cove in nineteen outside of the other symptoms like fever or cough that we have been hearing about all along doctors and the UK have said that a symptomatic people that is those not exhibiting the usual corona virus symptoms of dry cough and fever should be on the lookout for a sudden loss of their sense of smell and or taste as that could be an early indication that they have contracted Kovic nineteen the British Association of Oto Rhino said in a statement quote. There has been a rapidly growing number of reports of a significant increase in patients with covert nineteen infection presenting with loss of smell in the absence of other symptoms evidence from South Korea. China and Italy suggests that significant numbers of patients with cove in one thousand nine have developed a nausea or loss of smell as well as high PAS MEA which is the reduced ability to smell in. Germany is reported that more than two-thirds of cases have an Osmania in South Korea where testing has been more widespread thirty percent of patients. Tested positive have had as their major presenting symptom in otherwise mild cases. Iran has reported an increase in cases of isolated nausea and many colleagues from the US. France and northern Italy have had the same experience professor Claire Hopkins President of the British right a logical society reports personally seeing four patients this week who are symptomatic except for the recent onset of nausea usually no more than about one case is seen per month these patients may have some of the hitherto hidden carriers that have been facilitated by the rapid spread of Kuban nineteen. Unfortunately they do not meet current criteria for testing or self isolation and quote the association recommended adding loss of smell to the symptoms requiring quarantine and self-isolation so that quote we might potentially be able to reduce the number of otherwise as symptomatic individuals who continue to act as vectors not realizing the need to self isolate end quote

"With diarrhea and didn't get a scratchy sore throat and then get a fever and then you have a dry cough what we do and I'm sure other hospitals emulate this as well what we do is we have you take a respiratory profile which it consists of about I would say ten respiratory viral tests and influenza a and influenza B. testing if all of that is negative then we test you for Kobe nineteen so we don't waste the check this is what we do in the emergency room out in the open spaces of a parking lot or the local mall or wherever they're now setting up the public testing centers you should have symptoms before you get tested because you're taking that test away from somebody who may need it and more importantly in this is a big one you're using a personal protection material that your first responders need for doctors and nurses me and believe me we have a major shortage of Max gloves down and we need it all and we don't have enough of it and that's our biggest problem right now the majority of people who are diagnosed recovery at home what is the defining point at which you leave home and go into the hospital when you have respiratory difficulty when you have difficulty breathing when it feels like something is sitting on your chest and compressing your chest something that makes you feel like you can't take your breath you're you're you're struggling then you dial nine one one and then we're happy to see you and we'll fix here the seven thirty news is next on WMAL then we're back with lieutenant colonel Tony Shaffer and K.

Dr. Rupali Chadha Reps and the Coronavirus
"Get right to the topic that's at the forefront of everyone's mind the corona virus or cove nineteen for anyone unaware of it. Why is it and what makes it different than say the flu or any of the other viruses that are floating around for you mentioned it the virus just like the flu maybe but it is a particularly Unique virus and that it is not a human to human virus it actually. I originated originated. Amel and then I've been transferred over to Cuban. What makes it unique? Are Pretty much three features? The first one is that It is much more infectious than the flows so infectious basically means eight. One person gets sick Gingrich. Many many more people than data flew Other unique differences are the symptoms that you experience the flu Lou. You get Malays get shells and you develop a fever. And all of that with Corona virus. People don't have chills body aches. Malays it will just develop achiever into the presentation is different in. Bosley and most alarming unfortunately is at the corona virus on leads to more deaths than the flu. So it is a much more serious virus that if the way Leads to rapid deterioration in a certain patient population. Which is what we're looking out for right now. What is what are the best practices that people can employ stay safe from the corona virus? The number one thing is to wash your hands so just open. Water for twenty seconds is good enough. Many people are very concerned about not having had that. There's a verdict but hand sanitizer it really useful which don't have been water for example winger puppy gapped but other than that. Both people can quickly get through banking. So is Your Hall Roy. Orange and that's really BA- keep yourself safe The other main brackets if to say separated from people as much as possible. The virus is transmitted just like the fluid grew droplets in the air or the virus. Live and then get onto those those for your hands and then into your body so if you keep away from people that will help a lot because you walk around the virus the beginning this is the two things hand washing and keep away from other people now. What are the most common symptoms? What are the things that people should look out for for themselves and others to spot? The Corona virus their car viruses immed- IT PRODUCER. Viduthalai costs and high fever. And those are the two main symptom that people get before they develop shortness of breath which kind of indicates that the viruses leading the upper respiratory track down to the lower respiratory tract and getting more serious now You know those are the main things but I wanna add. Say That many people don't have there's been done They have an loud chorus and not have any symptoms to speak of. But there is still contagious. They still have the virus. So that's why again this cracker says keeping yourselves. This is why our guardsmen restaurants are out that we can keep some separation from each other If we don't have been read all for him to our grandma she is at risk. And there you go now. She's going to have the symptoms. But if you do develop a dry cough and high fever It would be a good time to call your physician and we're advising people not to flood the emergency room unless they're really big Simply because of resources that we have available and also because we don't want yours become petri dishes where everyone is catches it from each other. Now we've heard a great deal about social distancing. Let's talk a little bit about why that is so important to help. Contain the spread of the virus. Even if you're not sick right now it's a great question because a lot of people are Crushing University of Shelter System which is forty six percents from other people as well as Dana. Home as much of your chance if your employer that can work from home. That doesn't mean that it's time to go to the pool color and it's time for stay at all and the reason is you know. Think of What happened with toilet paper so everybody needed to be bright or they thought they get toilet paper and they all went to the store and they all the toilet paper. Now it's gone. It's not that we don't have enough votes. They prefer all Americans effects that immediate post people running to the store and Diminish that availability. Same thing happens in healthcare. They're only so many hospital emergency room and reportedly physicians and nurses to take care of you. So if we're all out and Abou- and R- highly contagious buyer and we're willing Willie. Then our premiums that it'd be over flooded really have ventilators the country and unfortunately with this virus some people will require health and breeding is developed developed acute respiratory syndrome. So that you know big concerns. If you said you quote flatten the cutters. And I'm sure there will start to that heard of that term and that basically just need that. If you said on your limit your contact people are GonNa get sick at a slower rates. Go that way will have an emergency where DR versus an ICU. Ventilator available flow. Get RATHER THAN ALL AT ONE. Well put now as a doctor. You and the other healthcare workers are on the front line of treating patients. What are some of the challenges that you're facing right now and also? What are you preparing for moving forward in your your challenge for us right now If we have to be there they were going to be exposed. We need PD which is personal protective equipment and we don't have enough available Part of the issue is that a lot of people went out and bought the end. Ninety five mask or the glory with them from the hospital and took them home. That's part of the part of the problem. The other problem supply chain issue which had more to do with how little met in our healthcare industry get products to us and what kind of shortages they create. So you're not to get into that whole rabbit hole but we don't have enough personal protective equipment that the challenge Lucy. He'd also as I mentioned if that curve dozen flattened. We're just not going to be. There's going to be enough of US care of our view on the other side of that. How have you seen an uptick in healthcare workers? Coming Down with this so there isn't there has been talk. That healthcare workers are getting thicker. But the the big big caveat in all of this is that we don't have the amount of testing we need available just yet Our government and events gift from other governments are trying to help prepare for that so that we can tax people That one of the issues but Other conservative that there is a hypothesis that the longer exposure you have cue corona virus and more L. You can become out. There's no data to support. This is just something that Healthcare workers in Italy observed that their doctors and there were eighty six at a higher rate or a more severely fiqh but this is all just observational right now. We don't really know the big thing with this virus that I've heard is. It's so new that like you said we don't really know what to expect yet and everybody is just sort of learning from the last country where it became a problem as dominating around the World Eric. That's very true. Are you know that's why it's better to be safe then? Sorry has would you rather look back and say? Oh Valley so overreacted. We'll have to stay home for two weeks and watch versus. Oh no what about our businesses? Otherwise people

at work the next day the corona virus swept through this year I ended up testing positive relatively early only in the corn changed and I was removed from the ship and and place in a hospital in downtown Tokyo where I spent exactly three weeks my experience was thankfully very mild there's no reason to panic it's just a sickness and it will run its course as a virus spread here in the US we brought together a panel of health experts to answer your questions CBS news medical contributor you know her well doctor Turner realist back with us we're also joined by Michael Osterholm director of the center for infectious disease research and policy at the university of Minnesota he knows a lot and Dr Ben Gupta he's a respiratory specialist and global health policy expert welcome doctors I want to start with you Michael can we just talk about the ship or second what do you think when you see that it is a cruel human experiment why we know the cruise ships facilitate transmission just by the air circulation the inner cabins in the prince and the diamond princess with proof input into that and every cruise ship where we have this for you keep people out to see it's just a matter of time before many of again deal we've got to get him off the ship you're mine land you can quarantine in there if you want to do that but getting off the ship let's talk about the rest of us who aren't on ships because I'm wondering how scared you should be I had always thought many people think of you haven't been to Italy China South Korea Italy or any of the affected countries and you haven't come in contact with any of those people that you're you're pretty okay you know right now we have pretty much a homogeneous viral reactor around the world music you're not instantly it's not it's it's what we certainly knew what happened we predicted a month ago that we would suddenly see activity pick up new United States today Seattle has as many cases as many other the countries that we've mentioned there have been a problem and we're gonna have more Seattle's around the country in just the next few days to weeks so it's you have to now just like seasonal influenza you have to assume that this is everywhere right now and anyone could potentially be infected that way so terrible in terms of testing should you only get tested if you have symptoms should everybody should be tested what's what's more the parameters here yeah I think it's an interesting question and certainly this image there was a change this past week and so basically that change said that anyone can get tested with the permission of their doctor but what we're looking at are people who have the symptoms we know are associated with cove in nineteen which is fever shortness of breath cough in that if you have those symptoms you should speak to your doctor and let the doctor really get an assessment of your clinical picture what your travel history or exposure history might be and then make a decision as to whether you should be tested and at that point you know you will be either sent to a hospital or you know at some point have it done in the clinic when those lab tests become available Dr Gupta what what does the corona virus actually go to your body at any point of entry to the body the sinuses the oral pharynx your gastrointestinal tract what it does is it invades the lining of those cavities can cause local inflammation and that's when you have symptoms as when you have shortness of breath that's would have cost if a rock runny nose that does occur and we'll also see you sometimes have GI symptoms as well and so that is that is what's happening at the cellular level we always have symptoms you always so one of one of the interesting dynamics here is that we're seeing potentially a symptomatic transmission here where people are not actually demonstrating classic symptoms of cough shortness of breath fever but they're able to transmit the disease I will say one thing on testing one of the struggles we have in everything terrace that is actually correct it is we don't have we don't know these emergency tests they're coming they're just cleared by the FDA who knows how they function the fields we have no idea we're gonna they're gonna work you're saying what we hope they do and I hope the better than what was initially deployed four weeks ago to the states but who's to say how they're going to actually function in the field are getting highly sensitive enough we hope that's the key pieces here now Michael are we prepared for this to spread across the country well prepared in the sense that we know it's coming and we know that our health care facilities are going to have a major increase in load with that that's not an issue of debate what is a concern is how prepared are we at the health care level in particular aren't prepared and you were not we we have forty five thousand beds in this country for intensive care medicine anyone given days are filled can you have a can you get this and you get can you get this not no you have it and recover without being treated yes in fact the vast majority of what we now know is is that in the first day of your inspection where you're actually putting virus so you may not even have symptoms that we just heard from mark good death but then we know that over the next three to five days you have this rest

stand I was removed from the ship and and placed in a hospital in downtown Tokyo where I spent exactly three weeks my experience was thankfully very mild there's no reason to panic it's just a sickness and it will run its course as a virus spread here in the US we brought together a panel of health experts to answer your questions CBS news medical contributor you know her well doctor Turner realist back with us we're also joined by Michael Osterholm director of the center for infectious disease research and policy at the university of Minnesota he knows a lot and Dr Ben Gupta he's a respiratory specialist and global health policy expert welcome doctors I want to start with you Michael can we just talk about the ship or second what do you think when you see that it is a cruel human experiment why we know the cruise ships facilitate transmission just by the air circulation in the inner cabins in the prince and the diamond princess was proof inputting of that and every cruise ship where we have this for you keep people out to see it's just a matter of time before many of again deal we got to get him off the ship getting mine land you can quarantine in there if you want to do that but get him off the ship let's talk about the rest of us who aren't on ships because I'm wondering how scared you should be I had always thought many people think of you haven't been to Italy China South Korea Italy or any of the affected countries and you haven't come in contact with any of those people that you're you're pretty okay you know right now we have pretty much a homogeneous viral reactor around the world meeting you're not instantly it's not it's it's what we certainly knew what happened we projected a month ago that we would suddenly see activity pick up new United States today Seattle has as many cases as many other the countries that we've mentioned there have been a problem and we're gonna have more Seattle's around the country in just the next few days to weeks so it's you have to now just like seasonal influenza you have to assume that this is everywhere right now and anyone could potentially be infected that way so terrible in terms of testing should you only get tested if you have symptoms should everybody should be tested what's what's aboard the parameters here yeah I think it's an interesting question and certainly this image there was a change this past week and so basically that change said that anyone can get tested with the permission of their doctor but what we're looking at are people who have the symptoms we know are associated with covert nineteen which is fever shortness of breath cough in that if you have those symptoms you should speak to your doctor and let the doctor really get an assessment of your clinical picture what your travel history or exposure history might be and then make a decision as to whether you should be tested and at that point you know you will be either sent to a hospital or you know at some point have it done in the clinic when those lab tests become available that you're good at what what does the corona virus actually doing your body at any point of entry to the body the sinuses the oral pharynx your gastrointestinal tract what it does is it invades the lining of those cavities can cause local inflammation and that's when you have symptoms as when you have shortness of breath that's when it cost if a rock runny nose that does occur and we also see sometimes have GI symptoms as well and so that is that is what's happening at the cellular level we always have symptoms you always so one of one of the interesting dynamics here is that we're seeing potentially a symptomatic transmission here where people are not actually demonstrating classic symptoms of cough shortness of breath fever they're able to transmit the disease I will say one thing on testing one of the struggles we have in everything terrace that is actually correct is we don't have we don't know these emergency tests they're coming they're just cleared by the FDA who knows how they function the fields we have no idea we're gonna they're gonna work you're saying what we hope they do and I hope the better than what was initially deployed four weeks ago to the states but who's to say how they're going to actually function in the feel are being highly sensitive enough we hope that's the key pieces here now Michael are we prepared for this to spread across the country well I prepared in the sense that we know it's coming and we know that our health care facilities are going to have a major increase load we that that's not an issue of debate what is a concern is how prepared are we at the health care level in particular are prepared and you were not we we have forty five thousand beds in this country for intensive care medicine anyone given days are filled can you have a can you get this and that you get can you get this not no you have it and recover without being treated yes in fact the vast majority of what we now know is is that in the first day of your inspection where you're actually putting virus so you may not even have symptoms that we just heard from mark good death but then we know that over the next three to five days you have this rust operas Pretoria for infection that just like the flu type of picture for some reason a larger risk is is there

Coronavirus fears shadow this year's March Madness
"Twitter should the NC double a tournament games known as March madness be played in front of zero fans only in front of television cameras because of concerns over the corona virus the national college Players Association has asked the National Collegiate Athletic Association the NC double a to consider holding March madness without an audience present due to the emerging corona virus threat is that of going overboard I don't think so in fact I think it's a bigger concern for the fans but it is for the players and for the rest of us if you understand that this disease is as we heard last night from doctors it sends people to the hospital substantially more often than the seasonal flu it also has a mortality rate that is substantially higher than the seasonal flu for anybody who tells me one more time this is just the like the seasonal flu yes it's just like the seasonal flu accepted send Jew to the hospital a lot more frequently than the seasonal flu and it kills people a lot more frequently than the seasonal flu other than that yeah there are somewhat similar and one of the little tidbits that I got out of last night's interview with a medical expert from what World Health Organization who is a doctor himself is that covert nineteen which is one of the corona viruses corona and for people to say well isn't sars the corona virus corona virus is a type of virus yes sars is in the corona virus family so is coded nineteen but one of the details he said that I had not seen in any of the other reporting I believe me I've read a truckload of the other reporting on this subject in the last two months now since this first emerged in early January is that in simple terms laid terms the seasonal flu likes your nose your throat your mouth and your guts that's where it likes to live coronavirus or cobit nineteen likes your lungs I mean different kinds of bacteria different kinds of viruses in this case like to live in different places where we're all familiar with the idea that there are certain kinds of bacteria and certain kinds of viruses it like different parts of your body to live in they like the environment the regular seasonal flu your nose your throat your mouth and your god covert nineteen likes your lungs and why is that important well because one of the side effects and we saw the very first man who came back from China we didn't know about covert nineteen dad the Chinese barely knew about it they only reported on the first of January but he came back to a place called Bellingham Washington and he had a dry cough for four days that's one of the harbingers of code nineteen is that dry coffee added for four days he finally went in for some medical care they said we're going to isolate you that guy went down hill for the better part of a week and he was already under medical care he ended up with pneumonia in both of his lungs and if you don't believe me I'm drawing that from the New England journal of medicine and a technical medical report on what happened in this guy's case so he goes to the hospital he finally gets out fourteen days later and he's recovered now why is that a concern when he entered the hospital they give a chest X. ray no no manana a few days later lower long pneumonia a few days after that both lungs pneumonia now that sounds like a fairly aggressive disease and the tidbit from the medical expert last night on this program saying covert nineteen likes to live in your lungs why is that important because it can turn into pneumonia and pneumonia can kill you and yes it's mostly attacking older people people above the age of seventy people with underlying health problems but it also goes after younger people as well as I pointed out the doctor in China I tried to warn the whole world about the problem and the Chinese government shut him down and kept him from speaking it was thirty five years old he got covert nineteen he's dead today his pregnant wife also got covert nineteen I don't know her status status at
Tips To Prepare For The Coronavirus
"Are we got some really great questions from listeners? And I want to start with this one from Mattie Park in Ventura California okay. I'm just wondering how many people who get the corona virus actually die. How dangerous is it? Really? How much more likely is it to lead to death than the regular flu? You know. I'm afraid we might be whipping up some hysteria about this disease. Well I would say that. The good news is that so far. Most of the illnesses have been mild in China. Eighty percent of the cases have been classified as mild. This needs symptoms such as you know a dry cough may be a low grade fever something similar to a cold or perhaps the flu now. The death rate is estimated to be about two percent and this is really important to point out. It means that ninety eight percent of people who get this. Don't die from the virus right. Mattie asks how this compares to flu well the answer is that flu has a mortality rate of about point one percent or about one thousand. But here's something to keep in mind. Also that I think is really important. This two percent estimate is really provisional. It could be off. I mean early in an outbreak the sickest people are identified and there may be people with more mild cases have not been accounted for so that could throw off the calculation and it's possible that the death rate is even lower mean here in the. Us There are only a small number of cases but so far there have been no deaths and the people who do die in China tend to be older. The average age is in the seventies and the thought really is the people who are already in poor health due to medical conditions or habits such as smoking. The day are most vulnerable are their symptoms. That people should be on the lookout for and how are people who are sick actually treated sure well? Early symptoms include fever dry cough. Some people experience fatigue headaches less frequently. There's diarrhea the treatment is typically what healthcare professionals would call supportive care and that really just means giving medicines to keep a fever down making sure the person stays hydrated so plenty of fluids now shortness of breath can develop and that would be assigned. You need medical attention in a clinical setting. They can use a breathing machine to assist with breathing now. There was something that a bunch of people wrote in saying that they were confused about and that was something that Nancy Messina of the. Cdc said yesterday Yes we are asking the American public to work with us to prepare it in the expectation that this could be bad okay. One listener heard that in wrote to us. What does that mean exactly? It's completely unhelpful. Bottom line is what do we do in a practical sense? I completely get that. I think big picture here. There is no cause for panic right now but now is the time to prepare as we just heard the. Cdc says it's a longer question if if it's now when now we won't see outbreaks everywhere all at once in this country it could be cluster in a small town or maybe in the middle of an urban area. We don't know but think about this the way you think about preparing for snow storm or a Hurricane. It may not come. It may not happen but if it does you'd be smart to prepare. You may want to have some extra food in your cupboards have basic medications such as Aspirin Ibuprofen on hand. I spoke to Rebecca cats. She's director of the Center for Global Health Science and security at Georgetown University in this situation. If you have widespread virus in your community you may not want to go to a public drugstore. You may want to figure out ways you can distance yourself from other people. You also may want to think about what you do if your kids schools are closed. What is your daycare backup? Plan talk to your employers about working from home. Think through the details of that. It's really just about good
