"Brought to you by hotseat. A new memoir from jeff immelt the former. Ceo of general electric. Raw honest intimate. Hotseat is that. And more as emily recounts like to be a leader in of crisis. Preorder your copy of hot seat now wherever books are sold covid nineteen vaccines work. Here's the real world proof by alice. Park it's one thing to test a vaccine and another to see it in action in the real world more than two months after the first vaccines were authorized in the uk and us. Strong data have emerged showing that the shots are doing what they are supposed to protect people from covid nineteen and a study published february twenty fourth in the new england journal of medicine researchers and israel and the us report that the vaccine made by pfizer bio intech was highly effective in protecting against infection with the covid nineteen virus lowering people's chances of getting sick and the disease especially severe disease and dropping covid nineteen hospitalization rates. The data says mark lips itch professor of epidemiology at harvard t h chan school of public health and co author of. The paper are close to the best possible. News and a separate pre print study published in the lancet on february nineteenth. That hasn't yet been peer reviewed. Health officials in scotland also reported that vaccination with either the pfizer bio tech or astrazeneca shot was helping to lower hospitalization rates due to covid nineteen in the country. Those results were especially encouraging. They said because they showed that even a single dose of either vaccine was eighty five to ninety four percents effective in reducing covid nineteen hospitalization within a little more than a month after the first shot. The recommended doses. Two shots either vaccine. The findings are a real world. Harbinger of what the world can expect as more people get vaccinated and threw up a wall of immunity against the virus. Israel may lead the way in providing hints of where the pandemic is headed with a unique nationally coordinated system for vaccinating people and a tight connection between who gets the shots and their health records. The country is a scientists ideal study group and the new england journal of medicine study researchers included data from nearly six hundred thousand vaccinated people and compared them to a similarly sized group of people who hadn't gotten the vaccine after two doses. The vaccine it turned out was ninety. Two percent effective in preventing infection and among those who did get infected ninety two percents effective and protecting against covid nineteen symptoms ninety two percents effective and protecting against severe disease and eighty seven percent effective and protecting people from needing hospitalization for covid. Nineteen the results mirror. Those found by pfizer and biotech in their late stage. Study of forty four thousand people which also showed the vaccine could dramatically reduce the risk of covid nineteen illness especially severe disease but having real world data further. Bolsters that effectiveness data and could go a long way toward addressing some of the reluctance people feel about getting the shot because it was developed and tested so quickly as encouraging as the results are lips. Says they still don't answer an important question about the protection that vaccines provide how long that protection or immunity lasts. We still don't know how good that vaccine is three months out or he says that's the unique situation in israel may also shed some light in coming months if similar studies continue researchers can monitor any changes in vaccinated people's antibody levels and get an idea of weather protection against the covid virus waning or remain. Strong there is lots of reason to believe that. It's going to be good based on what we know about immunology and the durability of immune responses to vaccines he says bought more data will be needed to confirm that..

Pfizer's vaccine trial data holds up in the real world

"More again on the pandemic and the promising news about vaccines that Seems to continue to pile up of late. We're joined now by Dr Amos, a doll jah, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and a professor of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. It's always good to get your insights doctor and I want to get your take on this latest study out of Israel that seems to verify the clinical data we got on the Fizer vaccine that it seems to be Just about a super effective in the real world as it is in lab settings. What do you make of this pure reviewed study? This is great news because we always know that it's one thing when you're in a clinical trial, and you've got a lot of protocols and certain people who volunteer for those clinical trials, and then you move from that setting to the real world where things can be a little bit more messy. Are there a lot of variables that might not have been accounted for in the clinical trial, and that's what we really understand how effective the vaccine is moving from F ethical efficacy Studies to Real world Effective ists. I think this is good news, and it really cemented the fact that these vaccines are the passport and the way we get our lives back and put this pandemic to rest doesn't make you think that vaccines could get us to herd immunity that it'll be vaccines alone. That could get us to that step that we all want to see. Do you think that vaccines will eventually get us to herd immunity? But it won't be vaccines alone because already one third of the population in the U. S likely has some level of immunity from prior infection. Herd immunity, although it's a major milestone to reach. It's not the only thing I think to me the biggest The biggest milestone would be vaccinating are vulnerable populations completely so that this virus can never cause serious illness, hospitalization or death again that it could never threaten hospital capacity. I think we were will get there first. And then eventually herd immunity will will come. So I think the key is really taming this virus, making an unable to cause serious disease. And that's why our vaccine allocation process is geared towards those who are most likely to have severe disease. And I think we'll get there first. Before we hit hurted me. Did he speak about vulnerable populations? Doctor? I wonder if you're also thinking about the racial disparity that we continue to see in the vaccine distribution effort we saw Further evidence of that on the Bloomberg vaccine tracker just yesterday. What's it going to take to sort of bridge the gap between black populations receiving the vaccine and white populations? It's going to be very, very challenging. And I think that The more people that get back stated. The more people in those communities that are vaccine hesitant or afraid to get back there because they're on trusting of the of the vaccine or public health authorities. The more they see people get vaccinated and nothing untoward happened. I think the better it is. But I do think we need specific outreach to those programs to those individuals specific programs that really trying address their concerns almost on individual basis, because if that group does not get back stated they still represent they represent some of the people that are most risk for. Of your disease. They're disproportionately the ones who've died from this. We have to do better in order to put this pandemic to an end. And I think it's going to be challenging. And I think we're gonna need the innovative solutions. We're going to the community leaders to really Show people the data and be very transparent about how effective these vaccines have been in go through all of the safety data and hopefully persuade them to get vaccinated at much higher rates than they have been. Our last minute here. What's your level of concern about some of the latest variants we're seeing reports on with there's a New York Times report just this morning about a variant in New York City that seems to be spreading pretty rapidly and could blunt the effectiveness of vaccines. Yeah, it's hard to know exactly how to take all the news of the variance. We know that this virus has been making variants as soon as it jumped into humans and most very instead from made headlines have never made The New York Times Because they didn't change the way the virus behave. But there are some that appeared to have made the virus more contagious. Some that have Changed the way the virus interacts with the immune system and those air more concerning, But I do think when you look at our vaccine data against these areas, including ones that are more Troublesome like the one that they call the South African variant of the resilient variant. The vaccine's still do remarkably well on what matters. Preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death. So I do think that the goal when it comes to these variants is to stay ahead of them by accelerating vaccination programs to the fastest possibles rate. Some of these various don't pose a problem, but I think we need to do better attracting them and understanding them. But not everyone that you see is going to rise to prominence and I think we're getting better now at tracking them. Sequencing, and so you're going to hear more about various, but not all of them are going to be of the same important that it's gonna take some time. Specifically all of that.

"Wherever books are sold ghana receives the world's first corona virus vaccine delivery from kovacs by francis kukuchi and carly peckish ghana received the world's first delivery of corona virus vaccine from the united nations backed kovacs initiative on wednesday the long-awaited start for a program. That has thus far fallen short of hopes that it would ensure shots were given quickly to the world's most vulnerable people the arrival of six hundred thousand doses of the astrazeneca vaccine in the west african country marks the beginning of the largest vaccine procurement and supply operation in history according to the world health organization and unicef it is a linchpin of efforts to bring the pandemic to an end and has been hailed as the first time. The world has delivered a highly sought after vaccine to poor countries during an ongoing outbreak. Today marks the historic moment for which we have been planning and working so hard with the first shipment of doses. We can make good on the promise of the kovacs facility to ensure people from less. Wealthy countries are not left behind in the race for lifesaving vaccines said henrietta four executive director of unicef which delivered the vaccines but the initiative formed to ensure fair access to vaccines buy low and middle income. Countries has been hampered by these severely limited global supply of doses and logistical problems although it aims to deliver two billion shots this year at currently has legally binding agreements only for several hundred million shots. It already missed. Its own goal of beginning. Vaccinations in poor countries at the same time immunizations were rolled out enrich ones some of which have now administered millions of shots that delay led numerous poorer countries to rush to sign their own deals potentially undermining kovacs efforts to get shots to the neediest people worldwide and some countries can afford to go it alone. Ghana is among ninety two countries. That will receive vaccines for free through the initiative which is led by the. Who gavin a vaccine group and the coalition for epidemic preparedness innovations. Another ninety countries and eight territories have agreed to pay ghana. A nation of thirty million people that has recorded eighty one thousand two hundred forty five cases and five hundred eighty four deaths. Since the beginning of the pandemic plans to begin vaccinations on march second neighboring ivory coast will be the next to receive vaccines and also will roll them out starting next week. The government of ghana remains resolute at ensuring the welfare of all canadians and is making frantic efforts to acquire adequate vaccines to cover the entire population through bilateral and multilateral agencies ghana's acting minister of information kojo oppong and crema said in a statement that fanaticism has been echoed across the continent of one point. Three billion people as deliveries have fallen behind schedule and african nations have scrambled to secure vaccines from various sources. Only about seven of fifty four have begun vaccination campaigns some have also expressed serious concern about the kovacs initiatives goal of only giving enough shots to cover about twenty to thirty percent of the population in countries. That received donated doses. They have warned that even if the program is successful in distributing those vaccines those countries will remain vulnerable to continued corona virus outbreaks since most experts guests that at least seventy percent of people will need protection from the virus to reach herd immunity and experts have noted that even if richer countries reach some level of herd immunity. Everyone will remain vulnerable. As long as there are pockets of covid nineteen anywhere in the world. We will not end the pandemic anywhere unless we ended everywhere said w. h. o. Director general tao's adhanom ghebreyesus. Today is a major first step towards realising our shared vision vaccine equity. But it's just the beginning. We still have a lot of work to do. With governments and manufacturers to ensure that vaccination of health workers and older people is underway in all countries within the first one hundred days of this year the vaccine delivered wednesday are the first of some of about seven million doses being produced by the serum institute in india for some twenty countries according to the africa centers for disease control and prevention over the coming weeks. Kovacs must deliver vaccines to all participating economies to ensure that those most at risk are protected. Wherever they live said. Dr seth berkley. Ceo of gabby we need governments and businesses now to recommit their support for kovacs and help us defeat this virus as quickly as possible..

Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine deemed "safe and effective" by the FDA

"And johnson. It's been shown that they're vaccine is effective at preventing hospitalizations and severe effects of covid. Nineteen this from scientists at the fda we're seeing about. I think it's sixty six percent effective when it comes to moderate to severe cases of covid nineteen so matthew. Tell a little bit more about what we're hearing with. His johnson and johnson vaccine right so what happened. Is that johnson. Johnson released data about a month ago. You know press release but the process for evaluating these vaccines is that they go through the fda and the fda really unique in the world independently looks at the data and re analyzes the data that the company produces and its own report and then hold a public meeting which will be happening friday and so the documents before the public meeting came out and they had some good news both some really clear data on hospitalizations and a general sense of approval from the fda researchers. Sometimes they're not as positive so it looks like this may be another option now. The big plus is on. This is one. It's a one shot dose. So you don't have to go back for a second jab in the arm and also doesn't need to be kept frozen like the pfizer derna vaccines do so shipping and handling of all of this will be a lot easier much easier to transport and that's a big advantage. It does not look like we're gonna have a huge amount of supply the start off with so it doesn't dramatically change how fast we're going to be any shots into people's arms but for a lot of people i think in a lot of experts i talked. You think this'll be a great option. It's one and done. I think some of the numbers. I saw the might have about four. That are produced right now. Ready to send out so it gets approved. They can get those out really quick but it wouldn't be until april possibly where they can really ramp up production to start distributing that right and will also be getting over that where they're hundreds of millions of doses of the two vaccines have the madonna and fayza biontech vaccines. That are expected to arrive in the us by july. So there's gonna be a lot more vaccine available. The jj supply will ramp up and we'll be getting more of those other two vaccines that leaves. There's a vaccine coming from nova vacs. We don't really know about how much will getting the early results issued press. Release again good and we're waiting for. Us results on the astra zeneca vaccine. Now some good news. With his johnson and johnson one is its effectiveness against these variants. That we've been hearing a lot about so it fared better than expected when it comes to those. I the way to interpret. That is we'd seen some results and the new results that they showed today look a bit better than what we'd seen in terms of variants. There's still does seem to be decreased. Efficacy against the south africa variant. Three five. Which is really the one that we're all worried about but it did look better than what we've seen previously and what j. j. has said it seems like with those variants. This vaccine is still preventing severe disease and hospitalization. Which are the key things. We've always wanted from vaccine here. The idea that you'd prevent a symptomatic infection or mild cases kind of bonus compared to just making sure that people end up in the hospital hospitalizations numbers were good on that front. What did we see when it comes to side effects. I saw that there were a few unexpected side effects. Although these are very rare you know but The expecting side effects the kind of pain in the arm the headache fatigue. That's pretty much in line with the other two vaccines. We have that right now. There were some rare events that occurred more often in the vaccine in the placebo group. Keeping in mind that forty thousand people were in this trial. There were fifteen serious blood clots including some. Dvd's in that exciting compared to ten in the placebo group. That's something the fda plans to monitor there was also some rini ears in the vaccine group and not in the placebo group. So that's kind of an odd one that will wanna watch again. This is really a prelude to friday win. Some of the top experts in the world are going to gather on zoom call and go over these data that the fda assembled we'll be live blogging that stat. That's when we really find out a lot about any medical product. It's it's one of the amazing things. The fda does now an interesting thing in all of this so public health officials might have a messaging problem when it comes to pumping the johnson and johnson. One out when we're seeing guys like pfizer maderna's say that their vaccine is ninety five percent effective against corona virus. Just listening to numbers right. This says sixty six percent. So what are they going to have a challenge in getting people to want to take this one over the other or you know how how to work out. It's really important to realize that particularly between those three vaccines. The getting vaccine is much better than not getting a vaccine. The change vaccine may be on par after a second dose and that study is being done but unlike visor during the second dose is going to be months after the first and then also slows down the study. She gotta wait right for people to get their second dose. So we're not expecting those data until kinda summerish but the big thing is for a lot of people. There was also the appeal of a single dose here. And i don't think we should understate that. And the effect on severe disease is big so the problem is gonna be the in the initial rollout. You really want people to take whatever vaccine. They're giving because being vaccinated is so much better than not being vaccinated. And that is part of the path to get in the world back to normal and public health. Authorities are absolutely going to have to articulate that now again because there's not going to be that much supply of this initially. They're going to have time for a learning curve right now. the demand for vaccines clearly outstrips supply. That's why you're hearing so many stories of people desperately logging on trying to get vaccine. What scott gottlieb used to run. The fda has raised the issue of you know. We're we're going to reach a point where the people who wanna get vaccinated we'll have been vaccinated and we're still going to need to vaccinate more people and that's when convincing people who are less sure to take vaccine in to take the vaccine that's available is going to become more of an issue last question briefly pfizer moderna vaccines are based on 'em a. What kind of platform is the johnson and johnson. When using this like theatrics annika vaccine is called an ad no virus which is a kind of virus that is used to the same kind of ideas marin a the instead of traditional vaccines were you inject the protein that your immune system sees and then learn to recognize an attack. These sneak something into your body that makes a lot of proteins. You make a lot more protein and then the body recognizes that an attack it in this case they're using this virus which is kind of a cold virus to sneak some genetic material in and that makes the spike protein from the sars virus which your body then learns to recognize and thereby has antibodies that attack the virus

Quick take powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts and more than 120 countries. I maybe. Morris, this is Bloomberg. Nathan. Okay, Amy. Thanks. It's 5 19 on Wall Street Life from the Bloomberg Interactive Brokers Studios. This is Bloomberg. Daybreak on the morning where were seeming to get AH pile of promising news on Corona virus vaccines. Let's go. On down some of it now with Sam Fazeli, senior pharmaceutical analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence. Let's start off Sam, with these studies coming out of Israel, the latest one suggesting that the two shot Fizer vaccine is 94% effective in the real world, just about the same as a zit wasn't in clinical trials. How do you take that? Is that something that we should have expected from the Pfizer shot? Good morning, Nathan. Well, we've seen kind of snippets of data ahead of this larger publication, peer reviewed publications. Showing similar direction for the efficacy that we we've now seen in a much, much larger data sets. So expected, Yes, but it's also nice to see it in the peer reviewed journal in a much larger group, you know about 1.2 million people. Often half vaccinated, not vaccinated, So that's great. But we do have to bear in mind that these are not clinical trials. These are observation. All studies and they do have Some limits as to have Paul. You want to take the conclusion, but there's no question this is great news. What's the conclusion? You draw from this then? 22 doses better than one does. Um, just does the trial which suggested on did that You know, we should just get out there and assess fast as possible. Get shots into people's arms. So that we can be one step ahead of the virus for a change and opposed to one step behind. Is there. Still some question to be raised about the effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine against some of these new variants, they seem to keep cropping up. The latest report out of The New York Times is that there's a fast spreading variant in New York City that Made dodge some of these inoculations. Yes. Absolutely. There are two elements going forward that are going to be crucial to understand is how long does this efficacy What? What We use it for how long has immunity from the vaccines Last Forgetting the variants. Just literally your immunity if the virus didn't change. How long does that last? And of course, time will tell, and Israel will probably be the first one to tell us that And then, of course, there's these variants, the one that particularly worries everybody remember that number will talk about it very often. I think, 484. That's the amino acid position where there's a change. In spite protein that seems to, um often data to reduce the ability of antibodies, for instance, induced by the vaccine from five to buy on tick by up to 89 fold in being able to neutralize the virus. It doesn't mean I will go back to square one. It could mean that we might get more mild disease, moderate disease, But I'm hoping that the other parts of the new system are still going to be able to manage. Severe critical disease and hospitalizations. We also heard from Adana yesterday, saying that they're going to start clinical trials on booster shots aimed specifically at the South Africa variant, beginning the process of Developing potentially new vaccines targeted toward these new strains. Should we expect approvals of these air development of these vaccines fairly quickly? Do you think are we gonna have to wait a while? You know, I think we've got several things that have happened That will aid that. I suspect. Every company will give you that news in the next week or two. And then the FDA has put out guidance as to what you need to do. You don't need to do another 70,000 patient trial. We can get this to people by full potential. One thing I would say, though another piece of information and I'm really dying to see Is what happens. When you give this new variant vaccine to somebody who's had the old vaccine, Does your body react to it as if it was still reacting to the old variant? Or does it actually Give you a response to the new variants of protecting. Instead, there is something called Antigenics. Sin is a flower look floral what friends, But that's something we really would love to see some data on In our last 30 seconds here, Sam. We got that report yesterday on the Johnson and Johnson vaccine from FDA staff. There's going to be a meeting on it tomorrow. What's your expectation and regard to the Johnson and Johnson shot? Would be amazed if it doesn't get to prove tomorrow. Nathan the dead The data is great. The efficacy is great, especially against those severe cases. Maybe not so good against mild water. It But definitely I'd be very shocked if it doesn't get approved. And then, of course, we're looking forward to the to those vaccine trial that their report All right.

They may have been given up to four times the amount of vaccine. So can you guys on a vaccine is it. Is it a safety problem. And what have health authorities done right and wrong in this situation. Well the first thing i want to do is give a huge shy type on this to both the commonwealth and queensland health because this is the textbook way so if you are feeling a corpus are unsettled about this in terms of the rollout of the vaccine i on the other hand find this reassuring hugely reassuring because what happened here was. Let's just go through it. There was a mistake. Made the nurse notice it and called it out and the authorities have not hidden it. They've been transparent about it and there's going to be an investigation and we'll learn from it. That's exactly the way safety and quality should work in healthcare. Mistakes will occur all the time. This just not happen more than once. It's unfortunate for the people who experienced them but human error is inevitable but the way to deal with it. Is that anybody who sees a mistake. Be able to call it out so for example if you're a daughter scrub nursing theater and you see a senior surgeon to making a mistake you call them out on and you are transparent about it. You don't hide it and so nothing has been hidden here since gives me huge confidence that the system is going to be safe and protect against human error. So i'm i'm reassured. By second thing is what about the man and the woman who were immunized. Is this a risk for them. The have been trials of the pfizer vaccine where they have tried out higher doses and my understanding is that those higher doses where safe did not produce side effects. And i think what's happened probably over. The course of the trial is to preserve the vaccine. They've tried to fight the lowest does. That's most effective and that'll be the does that's being administered. Not in theory. You could possibly get out of over reaction in the immune system. That's possible particularly with these mini vaccines but the fact that these people are elderly. They've got reduced immunity in the first place. And it's unlikely you're going to get that problem so you can have problems with too much vaccine. But hopefully they will be fine

Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine greatly reduces virus transmission, Israeli studies show

"To Israeli studies have found that Fizer Cove in 19 vaccine greatly reduces virus transmission. Shedding light on one of the biggest questions of the global effort to quash the pandemic. Data analysis and a study by the Israeli Health Ministry and Visor found the Fizer vaccine developed with Germany's beyond Tech. Reduces infection, including an asymptomatic cases by 89% and in symptomatic cases by 94%. The findings air from a pre published study not yet peer reviewed but based on a national database that is one of the world's most advanced a separate study. By Israel's Sheba Medical Center, published Friday in The Lancet medical journal found that among 7200 hospital staff who received their first dose in January There was an 85% reduction in symptomatic covert 19 within 15 to 28 days with an overall reduction of infections, including asymptomatic cases detected by testing of 75%. More research is needed to draw a definitive conclusion. But the studies are among the first to suggest a vaccine may stop the spread of the novel coronavirus and not just prevent the people vaccinated from getting ill. Dr Jon Swartz and Burn cold clinical professor emeritus of infectious diseases at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. The implications of this are enormous Republicans standpoints in vermin individual standpoint. If if the If these numbers are even numbers significantly less than this hold true, that is that once fully vaccinated. Well, first of all we know once fully vaccinated. It's Very, very, very, very unlikely. We're going to get seriously all and there's no evidence that you'll die after you being fully vaccinated. So we know that. But what if after you're fully vaccine, you get reinfected. We know you're not gonna get sick, but you could spread it. But what if you can't spread it? Or what? If it's very unlikely for you to spread it? It's gonna really mean that our masks they're going to come off sooner that we're gonna be hugging her loved ones a lot sooner right now. I'm fully vaccinated have been fully vaccinated now for this Just actually, three weeks today, um If I knew that I couldn't transmit this virus to my loved ones, I would My strategy would be very different. If I may ask you really come off. I could be hugging. Uh huh. But I don't know that yet, And so I have to still remain vigilant. And that is where a mask and social distance to be absolutely certain that I can't do that and think about all the health care workers. If the health care workers knew that they didn't it once they're fully vaccinated, they wouldn't transmit that would make an enormous difference in the hospitals. And think about just Transportation. It's just goes all the way down the line. So the implications are

Australian PM is vaccinated as rollout begins

"Today is the day that vaccination start to roll out across australia but we got a little preview of that yesterday with the with the prime minister and world war two survivor and a couple of other people getting the vaccine yesterday. Yes they go to i. Those of the pfizer vaccine which also followed a day on saturday of anti xers demonstrating and being talked to list in one city by pete evans. Some people criticizing the prime minister. Full so-called jumping the queue to get the vaccine before anyone else does but maybe leading by example. I just don't think you can criticize our leaders for having the it's not as if whole parliament skating it. It's really just showing their confidence in the vaccine. I think it's really important. Thing down the track. You'll see the health minister leader of the opposition getting the astra vaccine or the chief medical officer. Getting the astra vaccine to show that the our leaders are. You do have trust in this. And do you do believe in science. And i mean it's like laser immune to getting the virus either. Pay dutton got covid early. Jia by tribe and you you want your leadership cupboard and there's tens of thousands of accents that are gonna roll at in just the next couple of weeks. So i suppose people sort of is on the horizon going cool vaccine zahia. That's a really big comfort in a time of pandemic. When do we start to see things going back to normal. That's the critical question. And it depends what you call going back to normal because in most parts of australia. Things are pretty normal. We've got very little if any covid. Nineteen virus around in australia and new south wales is going weeks so has so have other jurisdictions so available around so we're back to normal internally back to normal means opening the borders having international travellers and tourists coming to australia us being able to go overseas listening. You'll becoming part of the world again. I think that's what we mean by becoming not becoming normal and covered that on tonight's Seven thirty program by talking to a mortar spoke to chris. Murray who heads the institute for health metrics and evaluation and he's of the he runs one of the world's leading modeling groups and covered on the health report back in november. He predicted the dr the global downturn in cases of covid nineteen that. We're seeing now he. He predicted almost to the week and his was. That was going to be nothing to do with. Thanks to nation and everything to do with season. -ality that really. It would have itself out in terms of the winter surge in covid nineteen. Because it's so seasonal. So i decided to go back to him. Seen other vaccinations going out. What what what's your modeling moving forward and it was quite sobering. He says he's not as bullish. Nah as he was back in november the variables that he's taking into consideration people's behavior. Now remember we're talking about the northern hemisphere not stralia new zealand but of almost no virus. And we've got close borders visit. If people's behavior goes back to normal before you get down to very low levels of virus transmission then you. He believes that you could. Well see a third wave evolving at the end of the northern summer. Pretty much like you saw in in twenty twenty and what could make that. Which is the second variable that he's worried about our vaccine resistant. Very variants of the virus escaped the vaccine and that they could really muddle the muddy the water considerably. How does that fit with other data that seeing coming out saying that the vaccines are reducing transmission in places like i and that's a place where the at least the uk variant is very prevalent on the uk very sensitive to the vaccine it's african variant and other variants than meyer is including the brazilian variant. We're not much is known. And you'll remember that. We spoke some days ago. About the brazilian city minnows. Seventy six percent of people had been infected with the virus. There were only five hundred admissions to hospital in the beginning of december beginning of january first nineteen days of january. Three thousand five hundred hospitalizations in so vaccine trials a very high percentage of people where had had covid nineteen when they were into the trial and in the placebo group they got reinfected with the south african variant so these vaccine escape variants are really worrying in terms of reinfection. Saw the vaccine does is turns covered one thousand nine hundred common core. Which is why. I'm gonna take the astra and we're five. We'll take whatever is given to me. Because i don't want to die of covid. Nineteen but if what we are looking for an opening of the borders and international normalization at least in australia. According to chris murray. We've made the wrong bet with the astro vaccine. He says you really do need to be immunizing with pfizer or madeira. Or perhaps even novak so that still to be proved in the real world. We're much higher. Degrees of efficacy and reduction in transmission and remember the other issue reduction in transmission is that these new variants emerge in countries. Where there's a lot of spread where the virus is multiplying and replicating all the time. And that's where these new variants are being thrown off. They won't be thrown off in austria. Where there's no virus around they'll be thrown off in low income countries like sight words middle income countries like south africa. They'll be thrown off in the united states in britain and other places if the virus keeps on circulating. So what we've got to do is get to very high levels of immunization very very quickly with highly effective vaccines and hope that that minimizes these of virus. Which is resistant to the vaccines. And then what we gotta do. And it's got to be done right now actually getting vaccines op through visor. Moderna novak's which are designed to cope with the resistant variants. That are around. Perhaps the brazilian one certainly the south african one and within a few months star boosting with them. This is really demoralizing. When with sort of on the cusp of vaccine. Roll out of here in australia woman. And if i'm just an average person sitting at home listening to corona 'cause what should i take away from these. Iud urging people from getting vaccine that they often no. Because i think it's really important that we all get covered so that shoots so first of all we're going to have a layer of protection. The international evidence is increasingly by the pfizer vaccine prevents transmission. So that means with hotel. Workers bar workers being immunized and hopefully their families to and that's a really important part of the story. We are creating a ring of confidence around the hotel borders. We've also got to institute with the pfizer vaccine. Not the astros vaccine ring vaccination around outbreaks so that we are controlling this any outbreaks there and everybody else immunized with the astra vaccine so that we are turns it into the common colds. We create a very safe situation. The problem is wayne. Do we open up to international travel and windy relax on hotel quarantine and with a country. That's largely covered with the extra astro vaccine. Which is not very effective somewhere doggy. Effective at all against the south african variant certainly in terms of transmission. Then it becomes a very nerve wracking decision to make. So that's why we've got to be planning in twenty twenty one for a booster. Does of vaccine resistant covid nineteen. That's actually a question that we had from john who's in australia who leaves in the us. And he's basically asking now. The australian vaccination program is rolling out. Do we expect. When do we expect the quarantine might be lifted. And what kind of factors go into that decision making so you could be quite cool about it if you think that we are all. We've turned effectively. Destroyed population susceptibility to covid nineteen into the common cold. And it does look as though the it's pretty effective at doing that with you're talking about african variant or indeed other variants. So we're pretty protected so you could say well maybe sooner rather than later but you know. It's just a very nerve wracking theme because we variants from all over the world and we are not donating vaccine to low-income countries. At the rate which will get van covered quickly enough and they will be throwing off variants and those variance will come to look at hiv hiv started around contrast saw in zaire and then you tens of millions of people have been infected with. Its an died. It doesn't matter where these variants arise from. They will spread to other parts of the world. So we've got to get the globe immunized as quickly as possible otherwise. It's very hard to relax just when you thought you had this thing pinned down at escapes again. Norman so so becomes really does become a bit like flu where the first vaccination does protect us to very significant extinct in terms of dying and serious disease. That's why i'm lining up. For whatever vaccine i get and i would urge other people to do the same. But it means that the government has got to not be complacent about this any shape or form and has to star ordering what's called multi vaillant vaccines are trying to ranging them now so that by spring summer of this year. We're getting boosting booster shots with multi valent vaccines that will covers against the current range of resistant. Variants around the world and that swing will open up borders.

Good News on COVID-19 Vaccines

"Doctor since you deal with issues of life and death. I don't think a tough question for me is going to stagger you. The president said today back to normal. Maybe by christmas may be by the end of this year in a good mary. Many americans are rightfully bummed to hear that but these vaccines have to get out there and have to work. When in your estimation will this vaccine be as plentiful as ubiquitous as normal as going for our annual flu shot brian. There is some good news on that front. And so before. I give you my estimate. I'll give you the reasonings We know that we've purchased enough now at least at the madeira in pfizer. About three hundred million people to be vaccinated. And that's what dr fauci said would be available by the end of july. But the was coming down the pike you know. Potentially the johnson johnson vaccine with this getting evaluated by the fda committee next week which might add again at least immediately if the millen dealt million doses than dan novak's another one that showed very good. Efficacy is going to get a valued in the month of march. So i would say That's even a conservative estimate. End of july there might be more vaccine candidate that they are successful. We may have more vaccine available sooner so the other pieces of good news from this week is that more and more data's also showing that vaccines may help reduce transmission that maybe doesn't completely eliminate the risk but people who are vaccinated may have a less brisk transmitting the disease even if they breakthrough infection to others. Because we don't know how. How much of a reduction it is and we don't know how the variance will affect all equation. That's where we're up for. Now are still asking everybody to wear masks. But this is good news that means transmission will start just like what israel is seeing that a lot of other countries are seeing that are seeing higher levels of vaccination rates. I am hoping by july We might see some level of normalcy where we start having small gatherings and potentially even international travel by next ball. I know that's optimistic. That's where i'm putting my stake in the ground. That's where i'm standing.

"What's up everybody this zach. I'm here justin justin. What's up so we are here with another breach of the week. And this is a doozy. This is So we're looking into iser and a data breach that they had due to unsecured cloud storage which hits on a whole bunch of the things we've talked about in the past one being and that really important data that you do not wanna get released because that creates all sorts of not just like the general like. Oh this sucks that there is a release but you've got like regulatory issues. The deal with generally frowned upon. If you yes. I mean the health information general is just not you know. You don't want anyone known about those like weird things you have wrong with you and so you've got some hip but more. Interestingly was also a failure like it looks like they were trying to do a good job so they have cloud data. Which we've said is a good way to sort of segment data off your system and protect it. Everybody's always get good intentions. But the breach was caused by unsecured cloud storage and they. It's it was found basically to be a miskin figured cloud storage system or they just set up their google cloud. Which i guess. I don't know when i think of google cloud i. It seems like that's something that i wouldn't expect a company like pfizer to do like i would sort of think that they've got their own system. And that's visors a multinational and obviously they're right now. They're probably making ungodly amounts many. Because i think they're one of the candidates that's trying to make the this is very reminiscent to a bank capital one. Yes so same. Same thing out while they were they were amazon. Yes cloud so i guess similar i hate capital i should probably say. Hey capital one wrong word. I really visually. I've had a few credit cards in my time. Capital was one of the worst ones. That i've that i had i. I couldn't get out of the card. I tried to pay it off in that. I wanted to shut it down. They like wh- like i had to go through so many layers to actually shut the car down. It's like they got me. He was one of those things where i was at college. Groundhog day. Pretty much like is it done like. Oh no you need to talk to this person but it was in college in. You know how that goes you like offered. Here's a credit card to go. Whatever you want about a really crappy laptop with it which was even more disappointing laptop stunk. It no god. Now that thing. I think i sold that to some poor doodoo about computers than i did or yeah yeah i feel bad but i was young johnny better so in this case though like so it sounds like maybe this has a little bit to do with what we and i don't know when this is gonna come out so we've either talked about it or we'll talk about it like privilege access. Which one of our partners. Cyber ark deals worth But the sounds like it might have been. It was a misconception geared cloud that that opened up access so i'm guessing it means they probably there was there was roles that maybe were created that provided someone an avenue in that should never or a path was created on accident. Or it's not a not a ton of information about the care that i can see but it looks like ms configuration at the storage level. It sounds like they caught it. Maybe during an audit or something that it was like they didn't know about it like wasn't captured as it was happening or there wasn't like maybe the indicators has sort of traveling through the system it sounds like maybe they were like. Oh yeah that looks like someone maybe got into this. That shouldn't have and downloaded the data. that shouldn't have. Yeah which is which is usually happen. Which could even be. I mean i guess. Here's a question so this isn't this isn't the first breach for pfizer. They've had a long history of Let stuff go okay. So that's true. I mean you know there's companies feel very evil. Even though they do really good things. I think it's just because there's so much money involved. That just feels like one of those very evil things so just out of curiosity if this was so. Let's say this was caught during an audit for instance. So this it doesn't necessarily mean that there was ill intent right so it could have been like an admin who maybe was or someone you know got fired in on their way out. They're like oh. I need to back these up before i leave. And they're like oh. That was not supposed to have been done that way. That could technically be considered a breach because it sort of approach. I'm guessing in this case. They wouldn't have announced that if the data had gone into somewhere where it could be exposed by right but it doesn't always mean that you know necessarily that. There's ill-intent right. It could have been done through. An accident and exposure occurred

"So i know in that. Within the last few weeks and month there's been millions and millions of devices of coronavirus vaccines going into people's arms. All around the world and one of the front runners as we talked about in detail yesterday. Is the fires a shot. So when we've been looking at things in a clinical trial setting get an idea of safety and efficacy and all of those other scienc- words now that we've seen this thing rolling out in millions and millions of people globally. What extra detail do we now have about. Especially the sizes shot just to really tease that out. A little bit from what you said is the trials have been done on an average of maybe forty thousand people which means twenty thousand people get the vaccine twenty thousand people gates the placebo. All that tells you is does it work and is it safe. In twenty thousand people compared to placebo. So what happened. In in the phase three trials of pfizer moderna and astra is that they showed effectiveness to a varying extent and they showed that there were no serious side effects and therefore good to go to approve and release over. There are more daughter to balut tat. Which is what's happening here in australia. So that's to but rare side effects are only going to emerge after the trial just rare side effects but side effects where in the real world. You're not as selective as you are on the trial so a good example of that with pfizer. Thanks seniors the in their trial. They did not recruit people who had a history of nfl shock of severe. And what happens when it was released. One of the components almost certainly was causing antic shock and people who are susceptible and therefore. Now there'd be very careful about fis are and allergy and people with nf alexis. Let's assume for example that the norwegian norwegian cases of these frail terminally ill. Let's assume that that is linked to the vaccine. Oh vet still a question as we record this corona cast then what might happen as a result of that is even. If it's just precautionary you might say. Look people who are over. Eighty five frail and if you think that they might die in the next few months. Don't give them this vaccine just to be so you kind of refined the indications in other words the group of people for whom this gets the you get the vaccine and it's really only possible when you re rolling out to millions and millions of people and might be a one in a million side effect which is really really serious which you can't avoid by refining. Who gets it award in which case the vaccine might have to be ceased and move on to another vaccine and those are the things that you learn as you move on now. The good news as we said last week on krona cast. Was that when you look at. Israel still not being published but if you look at israel where they got really great electronic records that are integrated and they compare the people that they've immunized with the people yet to be immunized it looks as though there's reduced transmission which is really the the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for these vaccines. So you're in good things and you things that are maybe problems and <hes>. It's unprecedented that within a year of this infection hitting we've not only develop vaccines and trialed them that they're now have been given to maybe twenty million people a lot of which has recorded in good electronic databases so that you can get onto this post marketing surveillance. I mean some drugs for example. Take years to find these side effects. And sometimes they're missed for years because doctors are really lousy at reporting side effects. And then you find the find the might this way. They're going to be find out much sooner more effectively and be able to find out whether it is coincidence or really attached to the vaccine

"How are you thinking about this challenge right now about how we make an argument for democracy itself how campaign for these sort of bedrock american principles that seem to have lost purchase in one of our two parties. I don't have an easy answer for that. But i will say that you know looking back not just on the election results but thinking about this in the in the sort of sweep of history you know maybe we should have pointed out the corruption a little more aggressively and not assume that. Just because some pollster told us that. Aca was the main thing that it was always the main thing now. There is a theory of the case. That when you're dealing with elected leaders with fascist tendencies that if you freak out too aggressively about the behavior right about the anti-democratic behaviour that you can't win this arguably happened with berlusconi and there are other examples of if you don't focus on bread and butter issues you sort of never get over the threshold of actually winning a working majority. But i think it's just worth pointing out that you've got Seventeen attorneys general Hundred i think a hundred members of the us house who wants to overturn democratic election. There are plenty of elected republicans. Maybe not quite half of them. But a really strong and alarming plurality of elected republicans who are proudly saying that they want to overturn the election on the basis of nothing other than their guy didn't win. And and if we don't make the case that that's disqualifying for them as a party. Then shame on us now. Does that mean it's the main thing we're talking about. Every every time we open our mouth. Maybe not but i feel a little sheepish about the extent to which i prioritize message discipline. Right right Over my own instincts to say these people are actually overturning. Everything that we hold dear. You are among many. That have been sort of sounding this alarm. It's it's actually. I think it's harder problem. Which is we can't solve it in one election right like okay. We talked about it more. The problems deeper than that right because it takes a very long time for these kinds of ideas. It seems that this rejection of democracy has been taking hold for a very long time. It seems like we have to just be honest. That talking about it won't be the answer for a long time. We have to make a really concerted long-term case to figure out how to convince millions of seventy five million some odd people they voted for donald trump who maybe are receptive to an argument. That democracy is a good thing. Yeah we should try to uphold that well you know. One of my colleagues in the senate was talking about part of the reason for the distrusted institution. You know there's the party problem. There's the fox news ecosystem and facebook and talk radio but it is also that institutions have stopped working for people and so it's not just a theoretical thing or filter bubble or question of what our messaging is it's that the institutions that people used to rely upon whether it was their union or their church or their government to make their lives better are not making their lives better to the extent that it used you.

"It's friday december eleventh and one step away. From a vaccine we start. You have a favorable vote. The button food warp speed is sitting there. All the fda has to do now is pushing like tens of millions of americans who carry app pens and are going to want to know the answer to this question of scientist voted on the pfizer vaccine. And what they still have before there was a vaccine. How much did the white house one you listening to scientists. Anyway you have your political appointee really doing a lot of the white house. The president's bidding a missing email could some answers. Protesters got aggressive over police brutality. What happens when police of victims family during pandemic in cop rocks. And you have these makeshift spike strips. Put a board on it. The new breed of protests in oregon from abc news. This start here brad. Mielke there is going to be a moment. Could be today could be tomorrow's maybe sometime next week but there is going to be a moment. Soon when the food and drug administration will likely say okay. The pfizer vaccine that has been approved in the uk. It's been approved in canada. It's got the green light here. as well. at basically that moment pfizer is going to try to open their garage doors and senate millions of doses of vaccine out the door. Like unless you lived through world war. Two you will have never seen a government mobilization like this on our shores. I would not trust donald trump however throughout the year. People have been nervous about who to trust right. President trump downplayed the seriousness of the virus. Trump's opponents said hey if he's not going to be straight with us. Why should i trust is fda and would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the The efficacy and the and reliability of whatever he's talking about i will not take his word for we have one pet oedipus and that is discuss and vote on the emergency use authorization of the pfizer biontech cova nineteen vaccine. That is why yesterday was so big. The fda had this hearing there was a vote but the people voting were not from the fda. Most don't even work for the government. These were independent. Scientists who the fda invited to grill pfizer as hard as they could to determine whether this vaccine is actually safe last night. That group voted yes. Abc's and flaherty covers federal agencies and can can we skip to the end of the hearing. I like what what did that. Actual voting last night. So this was a big moment. Brad it was seventeen to four this panel of experts of very smart infectious disease. Experts and Doctors pediatricians okay. I think we are going to vote so great but let's pull up the on voting question on the and they were all asked one question which is looking at the data of this vaccine. Do the benefits outweigh the risks. And that concludes the vote. The we do have a favorable vote and that concludes this portion of the meeting. So and the majority voted. Yes so that's the bottom line like they. They spent all day essentially getting to that big headline question. What do they have to get. Now take me back. What are they have to get to first because there were lots of you know concerns big and small to deal with here so there is this concern about allergic reactions. We saw this in the uk with two people who had serious allergic reactions required. You know an epi pen injection so there were a lot of questions about that. They spend a lot of time on this broad who empty drag chief cheesecake lemon in life. And what we know. Is that pfizer had excluded people from their trials who were specifically allergic to the ingredients in their vaccine or who people who had had serious allergic reactions to vaccines in the past. So what they're trying to figure out. What is that mean. If i know somebody who has really bad allergies that they're not going to be allowed to take this vaccine at all or what. That was exactly that question that was asked mary can can. I just thought the one thing that will stop the if you look at the components of that vaccine which has the probably the longest chemical name of any vaccine. I've ever seen in terms of that the morning. Nobody's gonna look at that name and take you know i'm allergic to that. So here's what i would suggest. And dr often is a member of this panel. Said you know this. Tens of millions of americans who carry app pens and are going to want to know the answer to this question so it looks like the answer that they came to. Is you have to go back and study it. You have to take volunteers who are willing. Who have allergies and are willing to take this under. Close medical supervision You know having an epi pen nearby having medical facilities nearby But seeing how they react to it and really studying that. I think the practical solution is bucket. Die with issue is not going to die until we have better data. It looks like the fda is probably in a position to recommend the people who are allergic to the components of this vaccine. Not take it But it doesn't look like they're going to recommend that everybody who has a serious allergy a peanut allergy for example. Not take it. Hey does the vaccine so far has been does it. Keep me from getting the virus in the first place or is it. Keep me from getting the symptoms of the virus. Because there's a difference right. Like if i'm getting but just i. I've seen fine great. But i can still pass it along to people. In that case right we have very little information about what happens to people who get to that scene and then we get exposed to covid nineteen. So that's a big open question. That also came up in the meeting. It was really interesting because you know they don't study whether or not people are transmitting it on the trial what they essentially do is they give half the people a placebo and half the people the vaccine and then they send them out in the world and they see who winds up with covance cut limited risk assessment that i think the uptake in the community is going to be fairly poor and that something better so one thing that pfizer said that they want to do going forward is to do these surveys. These blood surveys samples essentially to figure out who actually has the virus. And whether or not. You're transmitting it because as you said if you get the virus you might still be able to transmit even if you have the vaccine in your body is working to fight it off. So that's just sort of a big unknown right now. You know the thing that they all agreed on was that it was really effective and that they believed that it was very safe that there were not serious side effects to this too perlman. Your question about pregnant women. I you know i think there's a lot of unknowns with Pregnant women for example. They never studied it on pregnant women. You're correct that we have very limited data on using pregnancy We are expecting result of a developmental and reproductive toxicity. Study In the animal to be committed to we did hear the fda officials talk about possibly authorizing this vaccine allowing it to be used by pregnant women as long as they know the risks that it hasn't been studied in that population..

"So now let's talk about vaccines today. And i want to talk to you about a couple of different vaccines. But let's start in the uk where thousands of people in the last couple of days have received the fifa vaccine which is really exciting. But one of the things that we've heard about. Is that a couple of people have had an anaphylactic like reaction. So how worried should we be about that. People have been discussing this risk with the peiser vaccine because it uses a substance code peg polyethylene glycol mackerel goal and what this substance does in vaccine and a couple of vaccines that use it. I think the one of the meningitis vaccines may goco vaccines use. It is kind of out the components in the vaccine and enhances the immune response so essentially what you've got. Is you want the strongest immune response that you can possibly get here and the probably ethylene glycol helps that to happen. So that's what that's about so it does rarely 'cause <unk>. Reactions interestingly as pfizer says the didn't get an to or allergic responses anymore in the placebo in the anymore in the active group than the placebo group in the trial but these people certainly sound as if they got an nf electric or type reaction within a short time. After the you'd have to say was the pfizer vaccine. That did it. So you're saying that they did have some reports of these sorts of reactions during the trial but they didn't think it was caused by the vaccine. Yes and theoretic and people knew there was a theoretical risk of that because peg is known to cause an actual reactions in some people rarely. It's also used as a laxative. It's seems like a very versatile substance knows how to job well while we're talking about allergic reactions. Can we talk a bit about egg allergies and why we still hear that. If you've got an egg allergy that maybe might not have certain types of vaccine misleading story. That's got into the general public where they believe that if eggs have been used in the manufacture of vaccine. And you're allergic. You're going to get an egg allergy. It's not the egg itself. It's the embryo within the egg that they use embryonic cells within the egg that they use to actually make the vaccine. Influenza vaccine is the one which commonly uses eggs to culture the vaccine and it doesn't contain the york. Can we basically contains little or no egg allergen so it is a bit of a myth. So vaccine allergies are actually extremely rare. I mean some people argue that it's one in one point four million dollars what. Gp's are advised as you got a very egg allergy child them with a vaccine that uses egg. Then you just keep them in the surgery for a little bit longer just to make sure they're okay but a lot of these vaccines are being developed for. Covid have eggs anywhere in the process using all sorts of different new processes. The nova vaccine uses insect cells to produce the vaccine so lots of different selves used quickly. Talk also about china's vaccine which came out really quickly and they were reporting quite promising results. But there's been some news reports in a taiwanese news outlet saying that. Forty-seven people in uganda had the vaccine. Have now tested positive for coronavirus. How much stead should be placed on this news. Report a runabout about zero. We'd be my esteem you know. It's a newspaper. Report might be true. Might not be true. Might be misleading. That could have been part of a trial could have been in the placebo arm of the trial who knows and is complicated by the fact that no doubt taiwanese taiwanese media just love any story which knocks the chinese technological supremacy off the pedestal. So you just take all that with a pinch of salt. It may be true. But i'm really what we've to do. Chinese not done themselves a favor by not doing transparent trials at least yet and so we just don't know what's going on there and that sort of darkness stories like this popout and it. Just don't do the chinese any favors because the chinese are pretty good. Researchers of are some clouds hanging over some of their vaccine manufacturers allegations of fraud in the past. Well

Pfizer could be trading fifty dollars and this along be forgotten or it could be languishing around thirty eight dollars and we'll still be talking about it. Somebody in my opinion in public relations or something at pfizer had to get together. And say we're going to put a moratorium on anything relating to stock purchases or sales in the immediate future based on this information. It's too much of a magnifying glass. That's what i would have done now whether that's right or wrong it's again. We can have the conversation. I understand capitalism all that stuff but optics absolutely have to play into this mel matter to you this matter to investors. No no but it may matter to him. You know i think guy makes a good point. He sold stock at forty two and it could have been trading at fifty two days later. I mean that's what makes market here. Maybe his kids needed some braces and one was going off to college or something like that doing a little financial planning. I mean we just don't know the one thing i will tell you. Though in the next couple of months is that you know a lesser last skepticism about the timing of their announcement about the vaccine data. They were very very clear that they did not want to release any data good or bad before the election and alternate but you may see republicans.

"We didn't take any money from while it's true. In terms of the development of the vaccine there was a carrot dangled out there two hundred million dollar federal. I'm sorry is it is it. is it two billion. How much money is two billion dollar early to buy of the vaccine and it seems to me again in the spirit of fairness it's an incentive for pfizer to do. Its work knowing that if they succeed. The federal government's going to give them two billion dollars for their work product. Isn't that fair yes. I think that's important to point out. It's not the same thing you gave us the money to develop tourists but yes it is and i think to give the administration. It's do they did. Try to build up funds and get ready to stockpile pay for this. There are many manufacturers including five zero ready made a lot of this stuff and have it in warehouses. Were very cold knowing that if it works. They're going to get paid. That was A reasonable approach. One thing we could fight about The administration bits so heavily in vaccines that they didn't spend enough money on research for medicines to treat people who get sick if you looked at the budget. It's like ninety percent vaccine funding in payment for a winners and maybe ten percent for medicines. Thorough diseases that we combat and control by using drugs. Thank hepatitis c. We don't have the vaccine but we got a pretty darn good medicine eight. We don't have a vaccine but we have pretty darn medicines now so you know there are people who say well they over bet on the vaccines. They put too much over there. But you know what's interesting about. This is the trump administration has been downplaying the virus throughout saying it's over when it's not it's disappearance. Not i mean. Obviously they did go go hot and heavy into the vaccine end of things which admits the problem. So it's a weird dichotomy there you know it is it is. It's true and look some other interesting things so pfizer has an early Announcement ahead of everybody else. But there's a almost the same kind of vaccine being developed by a company called madonna expenses. Here from then pretty fast. It's the same two-shot heavy refrigeration thing but it would add more access because it's just another company with bigger supply. The world is going to need a lot of vaccine so there's room for more than one company and so some people may get one vaccine and another group of people may get a different vaccine. And maybe they'll be slight differences on efficacy. You know maybe ones ninety percent or better and maybe ones eighty percent but that'll be interesting to see how that sorts out in terms of which one you know you get so to speak. I plan to get them. All actually decided. But i'm sorry mortgage. Who's going to say this vaccine. There was some controversy among evangelical..

That they wanted to drop the thirty two case interim analysis. The fda was of this decision discussions between the agency and the company's concluded and testing began this past wednesday.

They had this in late october and they decided not to announce it why we already went through. How pfizer some of the top democrat. Political donors out there. Pfizer directly interfered with this election as a publicly traded company because they wanted donald trump out of office. The milwaukee city wires shows preliminary milwaukee county election records. Show at least four. Felons and eligible to vote. Casted absentee ballots in the november third. General election says milwaukee felons cast absentee ballots in two thousand and twenty election. We already have evidence of what something that's happening. Wisconsin and the trump campaign staff claims to have statistical evidence of fraud in wisconsin as the president's path. The two hundred seventy electoral votes continues to narrow because of the new results. The washington examiner says one member of president. Trump's reelection team who spoke with the washington examiner on condition of anonymity said ballot ticket. Milwaukee indicates illegal activity by democrats in the city the distribution of those ballots in favor of presumptive president elect joe biden the individual. Edged violates bedford's law as we've talked about an analytical framework used by statisticians when observing a set of randomized data points bedford's laws often used by election analysts both the united states and abroad to detect fraud or any sorts of improprieties in elections in third world countries. They look at bedford's law if they're trying to steal. Any sort of election and voter fraud is rampant all across the planet as it is here and benfits law should be reason enough by the republican legislator in legislature and wisconsin and michigan arizona and pennsylvania. And georgia should open up a criminal investigation immediately or hearings and ask how is of this possible. Can show the bedford's law on the screen. So you see. This is a law of large numbers. And you can see in. The bottom right is biden's data's that right. I can't quite see what we're looking at. Their bottom right is biden's data. Ucla every one of those other charts seem to behave in the same manner. And yet when you stuff this philly milwaukee and detroit and when you interrupt a flow of randomness which is what happens when you do not interfere all the sudden. You're going to have data. That violates benford law. the bottom is biden's the top trumps see. How trump's behaves in a certain pattern. And you see how biden's does not again. This is a law of mathematics.
