We Can't Always Believe The Stories We Tell Ourselves
"All tell ourselves stories. Usually as a way of justifying or explaining or excusing. Why we're in this current situation but the problem with these stories is that they never really the whole story ave there always some sort of half tainted version of the truth of the reality and the problem with that is that as soon as the circumstances over conditions change. It turns out that that narrative doesn't really fit it no longer applies and so we found ourselves believing in the story for so long and the conditions changed. Turns out story wasn't really the whole story that creates problems for us as an example six months into covert. I decided to this. I'm just going to get fit and healthy. And so i started sleeping better eating better walking better or exercising moving better and as a result of that arguably the bishop my life tonight but hey is thing. I told myself the story that i couldn't do that before the narrative i have that i tell myself is the my old life where i was travelling every other week. Staying in hotels. I wasn't able to sleep better. Eat better move better. That's the story told myself and it's pretty sure. But what happens in another six or twelve months when i go back to my old life when i go back to traveling every other week. Go back to staying in hotels. Does that mean that. I'm just going to revert to where i was before. Because see the real story should be that. I just didn't have the motivation before. For whatever reason yes. They were external conditions. Like i was traveling. I was staying in hotels that made it more difficult to live a healthy life but not impossible. Plenty of people have done it and so by me telling myself the story that now that i'm not traveling every other week now i'm not staying in hotels. I can sleep better. Eat better move better. That's not the whole story. That's dangerous narrative. Because when i go back to that old life potentially all my old bad habits comeback. So what i've got to do is tell myself the story that yes. That was part of the reason but it's not the whole reason. The other

"We are going to do a couple of stories now about gaps in this economy gaps on the personal economy side and gaps on the business side, it has been seven weeks now since those extra unemployment benefits that tens of millions of people had been depending on went away Neil it talked about that. It's been five weeks since president trump's temporary and partial replacement took effect using human disaster relief money and it has been five and a half months since Congress passed the cares act and as to deepen neil and I were talking about we are nowhere on more government money help for this economy possibly not until after the election. So how is that working out in our personal economies? Here's marketplace's Mitchell Hartman At the end of July about twenty, five, million jobless Americans suddenly lost six hundred dollars a week in federal benefits from their weekly unemployment checks leaving the typical recipient with three twenty, five a week on average across the country President Trump's pandemic unemployment replacement scheme announced in early August was slow to get off the ground says economist Andrew Statiners at the century. Foundation. This stopgap that was the to place was tardy and insufficient, and it's already running. Out So far about twenty states have distributed the FEMA benefits most at three hundred dollars a week more states have applied for their fema money, which is capped at forty four, billion nationwide enough to cover just six weeks of benefits almost as soon as he will get the money, they won't be getting any more by statiners calculation about ten billion dollars in extra jobless benefits have been paid out so far under trump's so-called lost wages assistance program. Compared to sixty eight billion that would have gone out if the original six, hundred, a week payments at continued Johanna Mayor, a healthcare worker is trying to cope with the loss of that extra federal money. She lives in Maryland and has three elementary age kids all at home right now, she and her husband had been out of work since the pandemic hit both received unemployment she's been struggling since their federal pandemic it's ended in July I mean. It's a significant difference are vines alone is two thousand dollars a month Maryland just announced it will start paying out the extra three, hundred a week in benefits, but it hasn't cut any checks yet for mayor and her family. Now I'm trying to survive a pay our rent or bills and our food on what amounts to six, hundred, forty, five dollars a week I mean, it's not survivable here according to a poll by Ipsos three out of four.

Yet, some of those retailers aren't getting by we told you yesterday about the Clothing Chain Century Twenty one shutting down. Yes, there is the pandemic as a cause, but the company also said in its announcement in pre direct language that it's insurance company was to blame as well. Marketplace's Kimberly. Adams explains that one. Century. Twenty one really didn't mince words saying it's insurers had quote turn their backs on us at this most critical time. The company says that despite having business interruption insurance when business was interrupted due to covid nineteen claims weren't paid out in this case like many others around the country insurers saying they don't have to Loretta waters is with the insurance. Information Institute which represents the industry because it's a pandemic it was never taken into the rates when insurance company provided that kind of coverage in court fights all over the country the industry is pointing to clauses and exclusions in contracts arguing the industry isn't obligated to nor can afford to absorb the pandemic losses in the meantime business. Owners are wondering what use their insurance even is, and then you also see a lot of folks are getting renewal notices for their policies for next year and a lot of their rates are going up. Davis is a lawyer working with the small business advocacy, group mainstreet alliance in some cases to three hundred percent, and so it's understandable that small business owners are saying wait a minute if the industry didn't pay out because of these exclusions, why are they going up both insurance companies and business organizations are lobbying Congress for fix Leon Buck with the National Retail Federation says, insurers need a federal backstop using the program developed after nine eleven as a model there's another terrorism event.

Here's what we've got today. We will look back at the past six economic months. We've got a LIP SYNC battle. Seriously we do and look brexit is back in the news from American public. Media. This is market for. In Los Angeles. I'm Kai. Ryssdal it is Friday today everybody the eleventh of September good as always to have your own. Well being mindful of the much deeper significance of this date. I will note today for the economic record that we are six months today for March. The eleventh a generally accepted I think starting point for what this pandemic has done to our lives our jobs and how we do what we do. So how are we doing in this economy right now that and the week was in the next six minutes of live Radio Neil Richardson is at Edward Jones City Brady is at political. Hey, you too. So Neil and let me start with you and and the past six months in in thirty five seconds how we doing because when this thing started, we were talking depression and end of the world. Right so we we've seen the depression part I don't think we'll see the end of the will be. That's the good news. We but we definitely have seen an economic decline that's been at surreal levels. Just think two weeks of a march shutdown with enough to drive a first quarter. GDP. Down five percent on an annualized basis, and now, and then after that, in the second quarter, we saw thirty three percent annualized decline. So it's been truly remarkable in terms of the economic recovery though though the magnitude is severe and still. Severe? It's likely to be one of the shortest economic recessions on record for starting to see the momentum and quick bound said everyone talked about. But from here, it's still vulnerable and the path back to pre pandemic levels is likely to be a long one. Okay. So deep let's talk about the from here part and I point you to Capitol Hill this week and the Senate not able to pass. Its version of another relief package. Why Why question we always ask about Congress. We. We all know that the United States Congress tends to respond to fast moving urgent disasters the ones that are politically salient. The ones that create a create a the momentum they need unfortunately corona viruses becoming a slower moving urgent disaster still disastrous still awful. But it's not necessarily shocking people at the same pace that it did six months ago. That is I think. The big difference that we've become too almost accustomed to the apocalyptic world that we're living in. That's just it's just a weird sense who cares about the deficit at this moment but there are people who do and at least people who care about it from from an timeframe or from whatever form of of of of religious view they have on debt. So, there's always a chance that something could happen in the next few weeks. We don't want to write off Congress completely of course, remembered twelve years ago. There was a giant bail out of the biggest banks that asked Congress just over a month before an election, but it was right after it failed in Congress and took a giant tumble in the stock market to make to to show. Some activities something that looked real for lawmakers to respond to. We just haven't seen anything sudden and real to get people to respond and let me ask you about that slow moving part of this thing because I kind of agree with deep, it happened so fast and now it's become a long drawn out thing. The question is, can people can this economy wait until Congress gets shocked into action? There is a significant segment of the economy that can't wait. Those are the people who seen their unemployment insurance benefits expire at the end of July. Those are the people who may be facing addiction. In early twenty, twenty one if something isn't done to to stay continue to stay the evictions Those are the people who are. PART OF THE OVER A. Fourteen million Americans who've been affected by COVID job losses and you may still be employed but not getting paid. So there are several people who will be affected by a con Congress in a stalemate. What's not seemingly affected the stock market which continues to advance even if you get tripped up here and there and over a course of a couple of weeks, a socks and home prices continue to climb higher. So the impact has been a different. For different segments of the economy will do the stock market is clearly what's giving Congress the covered to not actually move right? I mean that's that's not much of a debate but let me get back to what you said a little while earlier, which is, let's keep an eye on the next few weeks. The you actually believe there's going to be relief action in this. Congress, before the election and if not how it not become a political problem. It it it. I think it's possible that we will get some some type of action just never know like all of these things come out of nowhere like we we would have expected that there would have been. More urgency a month ago or six weeks ago and that that there isn't a think as perhaps the most shocking political story of the moment that that they're not feeling it I do think some lawmakers are are aware of the risk. It had their democratic lawmakers who are screaming at Nancy Pelosi right now saying please pass something We're we're in tight races, but they're also Republican lawmakers who. Carrying on a narrative that the thing that gets out of this is grit and determination, it's not more money. It's it's it's like wrapping yourself in a flag. Maybe, not even with a mask. And and just just trying to like get just get through it and there's this idea that like that's the American spirit and that's the there. These really contrary views of what what the country needs right now that have been. And been become obviously polarizing but become ingrained in our in our minds collect way the nation. Quick. Just a rip off of that a little bit. You know Congress has been remarkable and its ability to pull a rabbit out of the hat in the last minute and what can't be denied. It's the political calculus going into whether or not to do this next round twenty Republican Senate. Seats are also up for election in November and so they have to be doing that calculus what happens to their? Their states, it's no more stimulus as passed. That's going to be part of the negotiations over the next few weeks as well. We're fifty something. There's from this election city. Brady at Politico Neil. Richardson at Edward. Jones. Thanks you too have a nice weekend. Thanks guy. All right. We'll talk to you soon on Wall Street today a little bumpy little choppy. Actually we'll.

The public health will also trying to create a path forward knowing that this may be some time. All right. Let's go to the phones and this is a call in for you listeners what questions lingering or new do you have about the virus about how we're handling it about what comes next maybe about vaccines or how we what we know about infection now one, eight, hundred, four, two, three, eight, two, five, five, that's one eight, hundred, four to three talk. I'M GONNA turn to Nick from Jamaica Plain Nick you are on with the doctors..

"Dr Garrone great can be back. And also with us as Dr Sandra Nelson. An infectious disease physician at. Mass General Hospital and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School Dr Nelson Welcome back to you. Thanks so much. So, I just in reading those numbers again it's a lot. So let me just start by asking both of you six months into the state of emergency. How were you and how do you think we're doing doctor tyrone maybe you can start. How am I? It's tiring and you know we're all tired everyone's tired everyone has pandemic fatigue we in infectious disease and hospital beyond you and working. So so many hours and and we really are so sad about all the lives that we lost. But at the same time you here in Massachusetts, we do to remember that we're lucky and that there's there's certainly a lot of hope given our low numbers. May I ask you have you lost anyone close to you? Know one very close to me. I'm glad for you about that Dr Nelson how about you? How are you doing? you know I share some of those thoughts. It really is staggering. When you think about six months is is is an incredibly long time in in the life of this epidemic but it's a short time in our own lives and yet it feels like it's just been We've been living in this this covert world now for for such a long time. I you know, I, think one of the things that's so interesting is that that my day job is so much different than it used to be is still see patients still do many of the things that we used to do, but it's just got such a different feel to it. There is both I think a sense of purpose and a sense of of drive to to do all that we can to help the people who are affected by this and to help our communities as they struggle to cope. You. Know I I feel like. I regularly chrome across people who have different stories of when they realized. How heavy this was how long it was going to be with us how real it was I think for me it was covenant covering governor. Bakers Presser the day that he said masks we're going to be the new normal. When did each of you understand the depth and the breadth of what we were confronting? I mean I think that When I started to see that we were inevitably headed into a search You know maybe that was mid-march maybe that was around the time the kids were released from school that I it occurred to me that this really was the new normal..

At the time of the massacre at the offices of Charlie upto in two thousand fifteen, you know millions of people took up the cause of Charlie Hebdo with the Hashtag just we surely. What is the influence and reach of Charlie upto five years on. The change is we now live in an open world we live in an open world with closed minds I tend to say so everything we do and publish everything we draw in our little corner of the world can be seen and shared and seen by people who will not understand who are not prepared to understand the subtleties lease. So that's the base of big misunderstandings I. Think the show do killing was a sort of tragic misunderstanding and think they'll be more in the future more misunderstanding it is a global coach clashing away. Patrick's Japan is a political cartoonist space in Switzerland thanks a lot. Patrick. UNCURABLE. Yesterday recess the Geena was arrested. He's known for saving hundreds of lives during the Rwandan genocide and for his story being told in the Film Hotel Rwanda Rwanda authorities have charged recess beginning with terrorism arson and murder but critics say the arrest is politically motivated. We're joined now by cloud gotTa Bouquet Claude lived through the genocide and today is an activist with the African great. Lakes Action Network Claude first of all, tell us about Paul says the by Geena for those who don't know who he is, what this story and how has he seen in Rwanda today? He's story is that all in up stander during the genocide he used the hotel that he managed to shelter over a thousand people which was really difficult during that time is of genocide and I have to move houses, multiple times and had to be in hiding. It was not an easy task to hide people. So it was a wonderful thing they during the genocide but now as a critic of the government of Rwanda, he's been painted with the same broad rush that the paint every critic with every person that comes out of the critics is branded as a genocide deny your even somebody like. That helped people during the genocide they are branded as terrorists and enemies of the country. So criticizing the President Kagami is equated with being an enemy of the state POLKA. Gami has been president of Rwanda for quite some time has Paul recess a begin I've been critical of him for a he has for at least the last fifteen years. He's been one of the leading critics of Polka gone me especially when it comes to atrocities in the Congo where. Six, million people have died as a result of one day in Uganda's invasion into the country and all kinds of human rights. Abuses publicist to begin has spoken on that. He's spoken against the dictatorship in Rhonda. He's spoken against this staged elections. He's basically been a very open and wanted the loudest critics of the government over wonder. Was Paul Richness, the beginning arrested in Rwanda or outside of Rwanda he was arrested outside of Wanda he was on a flight to Dubai and somewhere along the riot. Stopped in coughed and taken away to Rwanda but that was not his destination not on his Tinari. What are the charges that they're wanding authorities are leveling at Paul Roos Uva Geena are they saying that he's currently a terrorist and involved in arson and murder or are they saying that he was actually somebody who is involved back in the genocide during the genocide? No the accusation is was happening today they're accusing him of financing an armed group that's fighting against Rwandan government. Of course, he is a member of a coalition of which this group is a part of in when you look back at Rwanda's history, all gummy came to power in a similar manner where he was a part of an armed group that came into gopher, the country, the RPF, they Rwandan Patriotic Front, which is in power today. However wanders reacted to Paul was just the beginning of the rest. There is a lot of outrage of course what those who support the government they are celebrating but you know the place where you really see Rwandans expressing themselves freely on social media in you can tell there's a lot of outrage on this arrest because to lots of Rwandans the government itself is criminal. So, what happens now? I believe two things are gonNA. Happen One. The government's GONNA run smear campaign against him as they do with all critics. They are going to run a trial which a lot of the politically motivated trials in Wanda are neither free nor fair. We're basically judged by the president gummy however I think the international community is going to play a big role in it. What we've seen in the past is for this political cases win the international community has stood up and really shown injustice but the government over Wanda there one of government has eventually released some of the critics that it has arrested and tried and held. Club got the Buca is an activist with the African Great Lakes Action. Network. Thanks a lot. Thank you. If you spent any time in the last several months daydreaming about traveling to a distant land for fun. You've probably also spent some time cringing at the risks and hassle involved three members of our newsroom have just cleared those Kovic travel hurdles and are here to dish about it Lydia leader or H-have Lancia and Reo Saran all recently flew from the United States to relocate for reporting assignments Lydia's in Athens Arielle is in Tel Aviv and horray is in city. Now Lydia start us off how is planning your international travel different than it might have been pre cove it. Hey, Carol. So for me, one of the things I had to think about was because there are no direct flights. From Boston to Greece was where my layover was going to be because there are restrictions right now and what flights can come in to Greece from different countries. The other thing that was a little different than usual was forty eight hours before travelling I had to fill out these forms that are now required by the Greek government for every traveler regardless of where they're coming from. So I had to give them some biographical information and some you know information about where it was coming from where he would be staying once I entered the country and using that information they generated a unique qr code for me that they eventually scanned once they got into the country are how about you? Hey Carol so I actually had my ticket months in advance, and then when this whole Cova crisis came and I saw that flights were stopping I was getting a little worried and I saw that my airline was canceling flights. And surprise surprise ten days before it was cancelled am. Airline did end booking a flight on another line, which was united. Or Hey. You're headed to Mexico City what was the planning for that? Hey, everybody actually I think it was a lot easier than lydian aerial because the Mexican and the US government's. placed. Any restrictions on flights between the two countries? So it's just a matter of looking the flight and making sure I had a really good mask. It was difficult for me because I have a pet who I have a dog, her name is Shula which in Spanish that means pork chop and she. She couldn't travel in a Kennel as luggage because of the I couldn't find a single airline that is doing that right now between the two countries. So I spoke with a counsellor in Massachusetts and she gave me a letter certifying a out during the pandemic has become a emotional support animal for me and I sent that along with a veterinarian records to American Airlines, which is airline that. I took a of time. So your travels booked and in Jorges case, you have your dog registered then each of you gets to the airport and and what happened there. Let's start with you Ario. So I was actually pretty impressed arriving at Logan Airport in Boston. There's a lot of social distancing and people were wearing masks and you know benches had banners on them trying to limit seating. I was actually really impressed and then I got onto my flight to Newark and the flight itself was packed shoulder to shoulder now one MTC. So it was surprising that in the airport, there was so strict distancing measures, but on the flight itself while the guidelines and precautions were pretty much thrown out the window. What about you Lydia? What happened at the airport? Yeah. Arielle actually had some of the same experiences and thoughts that you did my first flight to Frankfurt was unlike yours pretty much empty. I, mean everyone kind of had their own road to themselves, and there were announcements about covert related measures that we kept hearing on the flight..

"R.. Which works with coffee to conduct spectrum of measurements of ocean ecosystems in California current. Four Times per year. The count coffee tea heads to see to carry out pivotal shipboard, biological and ecological measurements and sampling cow coffee, having going out to the seventy two years, and this spring, the crew, preparing for the second voyage of the year, but once again lockdown struck. In April of twenty twenty for the first time in forty seven years, we were not able to go out to sample the ocean. And this has created many challenges for us. I have to say I understand the the basis for decision-making to stand down the research fleet in the United States. This is a matter of human health and safety, and it was a necessary action to take, but it does have repercussions for us. Spring is the start of the coastal upwelling season a time when the flora and fauna of the Asian kick into action plankton blooms, the growth and survival of fish, and the influences of carbon dioxide on the system are just some of the measurements. That will be missed this season so the. Ability to. Integrate the measurements we make into models is going to be. restricted. As a consequence of of this particular springtime time period. Their end forever in a day when we plot. The the time series measurements that are such important records of changes in plankton populations, changes in fish, larval populations changes in DNA. Measured by diversity in the upper motion, the those parts will have a hole in spring of twenty twenty. Now life will go on. Science will go on, but we've missed an opportunity to understand the natural variability in the system. And also how this human induced anthropology might perturbed that natural durability. Come the festive July, twenty, twenty, two academic research fleet is allowed to set sail again for obvious reasons social distancing on board, the ship will present some challenges so extra pre-boarding precautions have been put in place for those wanting to go out to the first of all. They're going to need to shelter in place in quarantine for a minimum of fourteen days in advance of research cruise at scripts. We've imposed a system of three successive covid tests. Tests by PCR, that must be taken at intervals across that fourteen day time period, people will be isolated in hotels for the last six days prior to cruise. If they pass the final PR test for COVID. They will then be escorted directly to a research vessel, and they will need to remain on that vessel until the end of the route research interval, it will be a culture change. It will also require a lot of human behavioral changes. But. I? If you're sufficiently motivated to answer the scientific questions then you're willing to to deal with these additional obstacles, and we're hoping that we can get back to the the scientific work that motivates us all. The scientific enterprise has undergone dramatic change over the last three months, but hand-in-hand with a crisis comes. Adaptation and scientists are well trained to cope with this. Scientists is of course filled with at certain moments, immense satisfaction and insights, but along the way toward those insights there are often frustrations. We all have experiments that fail instruments that don't perform the way they were supposed to challenging weather circumstances that make it difficult to complete a sampling powder in a field study, and in this particular spring of twenty. Twenty we encountered this nearly unprecedented inability to get out into the ocean environment. It's highly frustrating from a professional perspective. But oftentimes in science we land face down on the floor. We have to pick ourselves up and do the best. We can moving forward. Ending that report from Julia, Gold So that's it for another edition of Corona pod. If you've got a couple of sperm and could fill out the survey, we talked about at the start of the show.

"And if you can spare a couple minutes just to fill in those questions, it's only like three or four of them. That will really help us out in the future. This is not the last one we're going to do one more right. We're going to do to more. The tenth of July will be the last episode of Crow NEPAD in its current situation, and then we'll move into the nature August, and that's also not to say that there's no reason this couldn't come back. Back Right, so we do this because it's not true the time trying to make sure we can bring the best that we can to. You guys to the listeners at home, but right now this feels like the sensible move and we'll have to see how this goes. Because I think it says in the intro to every one of these episodes. We just don't really know how this pandemic is going to turn out still. I think there's something that amy said nothing ever according. It's safe to say we're in a different sort of chapter now and I do feel like you know in the beginning I. Really had no idea what was going to happen but I. Think now I have. Have a little bit more of an idea. Because before we had no past precedent to look to, and now we do, which is sort of interesting now. He can kind of see the trajectories of various countries in using the past. Maybe there's a little bit more guessing that we can do absolutely when the stops being the last epidemic and starts becoming the last three months. We've kind of got current past as it were that we can start to refer to. Yeah, there's a number of Nice websites out there from different outlets that kind of show graphs of different countries in their trajectories, so for example and I can put these links in the show notes but Financial Times has any. Any kind of series of graphs from different countries and one way that they look at it is they measure what are the excess develops time compared to previous years and you can see there. You know in some places like Norway Iceland in Israel. They don't really have a huge number of sex. So that says to me. They managed to really contain their outbreaks pretty swiftly. Other places have a very sharp mountain like the UK. Italy Spain huge climbs. Their deaths are fifty percent over usual fifty thousand more deaths than usual around there, and then you get the US, which is different than anywhere else where like in Europe? We have a very quickly escalating mountain, but we've got more of. Of like a mountain, range and fact right now, cases are going up in twenty seven states. So when I was saying we know a little bit more now I think if you're in a country like Italy where they're really seeing a huge decline, chances are. We'll see like what we saw in Singapore Germany. Sometimes there are big surges, but if the things that helped the outbreak to begin with are in place, then presumably, they will continue to stay in place so some of these graphs as well, and they're all kind of three sort of broad categories. The I can kind of divide the gross into as the graphs which have a kind of a tiny little bump that doesn't seem. Seem to make a huge difference like the fastest countries you talked about. And then you have this very characteristics of exponential huge spike that then also drops pretty quickly, and that's the way you know. The UK is currently sitting in a lot of European countries, and you look at the US and it sort of it is hard to sort of walkout what it represents because it is just like undulating up and down and up and down and up. It seems to be congratulated going down, but it's hard to I. Guess Really Understand what's happening in the states if you look at just sort of the whole of the United States in one graph, because what's happening in each individual state. State can be really quite drastically. Different on those graphs could look very very different issues to look at different states, which I guess makes sense because they have different governesses, and they have different public health sponsor in different places. Yeah, it's a big country, so it's GonNa look a little bit different there and that's one thing we don't see if there is a drop, it's not a rapid drop like it is elsewhere. What we see right now is that where as in March and April it was New York. That was just skyrocketing. Now we see is California Texas and Florida are kind of leading the way in rising number of cases, Arizona's distinct, and that has got such a steep. Steep increase right now they're outbreak is doubling every twelve days. Compare that to say in New York. where the outbreak seems to be doubling roughly every four hundred sixteen days just to say, it's not increasing at the same rate in eleven states it's decreasing and the other. One's is sort of hard to say so like you were saying. If you break it up, it changes depending on the state and this claim that the US has a lot of cases because of a lot of tests is just untrue. There's various measures to look at that. We've been at around five percent positive, even though the number of tests has gone way up so that part's not true some other. Things that people are pulling out of the stats, and I say people because the US CDC and health department, really leading the way as far as displaying data, but there's been a number of universities and also news that let's set of short. Pick up the slack here so you know. John Hopkins is one of various places that are tracking say racial disparities so from the. The data we have, it looks like even though black people are thirteen percent of the US. Population they account for twenty three percent of the deaths, so that disparity is looming pretty large and the other thing we might want to talk about is us has remained around twelve percent of all global deaths for quite a while, but Latin America is coming up pretty heavily. They've. They've been coming out for the last few weeks or so. At this point, they account for more than half of the new deaths in the world. So that's really disconcerting. Another eight percent of the world's population, the biggest surge there is in Brazil and Mexico is right behind that those both had leader is that we're really downplaying the seriousness of this pandemic and that's playing. Playing out now, but also in countries, where I've talked about how they put in really early, strict measures, Karoo they're still doing pretty poorly right now, and it's going up. It's pretty disconcerting. Those the ones that we stood out to me. Amy Is the ones that say did put efforts in place very very quickly..

Maybe you'll both the grill that of course is still ongoing, and the nature of science coverage is changing, and and we're looking to change with it, so we are coming to the end of Corona. What we're going to retire the show in a few episodes, isn't that. That right. Yeah, I think it's starting to become clear to us that we're kind of entering a new phase of the coronavirus pandemic, suddenly thorough here in the UK in the states. Now that's not to say that things aren't still very much going on in in other places of the world area in a very different phase, but I'm the way the AL coverage is working at nature in general. Is the IT's. It's starting to become more integrated into all of our coverage of science and less sort of the sole focus and I. think that's kind of what we're trying to do.

"So like we were saying these pods on the same length. Elimination would be the shortest option. Tony says might still be available but not for long and the next shortest would be flattening. The curve that's allowing the virus to spread to a point that is a user at capacity in this number of assumptions here. But these are hit. Immunity is achieved sixty percent. We double out. Icu pissed so the record about four thousand base to deal with covert. The average tawny admits IC- issue if you get covered as teen days and we also control the epidemic levers and keep just said. Icu pistol it would take featuring extreme calculations to see it all pass by February. Yeah which is a lot longer than the six month idea. That's being discussed publicly at the moment. Not at six months has ever been a promise but a lot of the policy response especially the economic kind seems to be geared towards that timeframe whereas February is more like ten or eleven months on upside tiny reckons. If Australia does a good job of isolating the vulnerable the elderly and people with commodities and some antiviral treatments become available. We could cut that time in half right. And then there's the Middle Pa the one that we're on right now and even longer than eleven months because he thinks if we keep squashing the curve way below. Icu capacity not low enough to wipe it out altogether. We'll probably end up with a vaccine before we rate showed immunity. Which means we'd say living like this for somewhere in the vicinity of a year to maybe even a year and a half because there's not enough social context to allow the boss to speed enough to get the infection right up to get the kite is passing through an achieve here community. Now that's just about hero seat. Settimana public health medicine speechless saying that. If we want to get hit immunity we're going to let more people cannot victim and doing some version of this until winter. 2021 isn't a pretty thought but neither is tens of thousands of voidable deaths. We WANT TO ACHIEVE IMMUNITY BEFORE CHRISTMAS. Too much social physical distancing environment which is why as a society. We need to work out. What our goal is here are. We hid immunity and completely relax because try and why and have reduced epidemic all social costume social disruption and economic cost. All those things for much longer until we have a vaccine okay so say Australia does want to achieve herd immunity foster. What are they doing that so if Australia? The signs that we want immunity and we want to try to before Christmas assault. Not Too long we would now just ease off a little bit sale out. People can take to work but more just get infection right up everything along and then we would get took point where it was starting to grow quickly would probably have to go into the liberal physical team. We hit now or preps even more lockdown and then holder that now. That's what I can say. I know played with the mathematics to make myself a sexy tricky. So you need to have a margin of era near you put in the controls all north. You go to to move. And it's quite a frightening thing for the chief medical officer to the thinking about pulling all but if we wanted to go to him you see that we would do. And some countries Sweden's by Sweden is relatively relaxed about the team. Except SEAN so this quarter around the world and how countries are purchasing. Okay so kind of a stop stop. Stop model yeah or to torture. Everyone's favourite metaphor this week about hibernation. We would wake the Baragan just for a little while and then send it back to sleep are not necessarily advocating that astray should take us. Pa But it isn't option. I think a lot of people think that what we're doing now. We'll get us through to feud immunity pointing out. That will now smell social distancing if we keep it on will not cheat hit immunity and we're looking at a really really long hole in the state until there's a vaccine we do have another option needs to be discussed about advocating. We take that route. It's not my job to decide that citizenry astrid that deserves the chance to have explained to them and be able to flick back to the politicians as to. What the preferences do you think? It's possible that the government's already chosen the model which we sort of redundant shave her immunity and we wait it out until there's a vaccine but they've maybe done a bit of a calculation that people will freak out if you say to them by the way you're going to be indoors for another eleven months. I couldn't possibly comment. Go on I suspect. That's what's happened to and I'm not going to criticize the too much into this really but I do wonder. Alexei speaks to wonder this being a hit in the UK the UK was initially on a trajectory towards immunity. And then basically the Imperial College study came out and shuts rights and society. Just to wear not going there. But they didn't consider what options where and so you look down by political will increase physical distancing. That happens and then. You're sitting here Australia about three weeks. Away behind chief medical officer. And you're looking at all this the prime minister. And you're looking at the less neutron wick. At how do we find out about this? I suspect just? What is this if we can't demonstrate immunity route possible so we'll go this middle route and we'll public know that this means it's not going to achieve it immunity when we get a bit of settling down here? I think we need to be transparent about. We're not going to be cheaper than going to be reading all because these serious implications.

"Okay so that middle option where you worked minimize infection but Tony. Shut everything down. Which is what you have to limit. The virus has these catch. And that's how long it's GonNa take. Yeah because there's only two ways that life goes back to normal. It's herd immunity or a vaccine and without one of those two things. Everything stays in stasis just like it is now did immunity as we've got enough people who are immune population that the virus can no longer keep sick and this guy says sixty because we need one person passes it onto two point five people in a completely virgin city population of sixty people from noon. It's going to be slightly less than one person you pass onto in the epidemic fights hid. Immunity is do. We need immunity. Well most of us thought this. What will be going from the fist price? Because then it means you can just up your borders garbage locked normally might if you just here and there but you back into a normal. Erie once you've got the the problem is the the cost in human lives to get to it immunity. The flip side is if you not hit immunity you've got the cost and by costuming.

Batra relation of these in goals. And we need bitter discussion than what? We're getting at the moment and bridges back to the dilemma. At the core of this pandemic the economic cost though since the death toll and Tony says the price of flattening the curve. Instead of squashing it could be tens of thousands of.

"We've been told a guy like everyone we are covering the virus announce changed the world pretty much every single episode and most of the time that just means one small corner of it but every now and then take step back and look at the big picture and that is the strategy for beating it back and eventually getting back to normal. Yeah so we didn't episode not too long ago a cold the fork in the road and it talked about how. Australia had an urgent choice to make. We could a lockdown completely very quickly and try to eradicate the virus all together leaving us with a separate economy until vaccine shows up in twelve to eighteen months New Zealand. Yeah all be. We could try to flatten the curve. Which is most people now? Know means keeping the right of infection to a level where our hospitals busy but won't be overwhelmed as the virus runs.

"Think you need some downtime your brain to just kind of be sort of empty for a little bit but I think I tend to empty my brain far too often and the thing that I would wanna do is I would wanNA keep podcasting because I'd want to continue to share God's love with everybody who would listen and I I think it's important to try to Assan whatever lessons whatever hard hard won lessons we've learned in this life from God you know we need to pass on to the people around and US yeah because you know those people that we are connected with in one way or another those lessons are going to have a greater impact because they're within the context of life and they can go you know what I shared life with this person I know what this was like for them so this lesson has weight and it has meaning right yeah Yeah Yeah I'd I'd WanNa keep podcasting for that reason that I'd WanNa keep 'em serving in church And and I would want to spend as much time I'm with family and friends as I possibly could and one of the things that I'd WanNa do is I would wanNA write letters to you to Evan and Tamale for all of the situations that might come up for all of the things in the future that I might not be there for you know molly walking down the aisle having her first child FM making the the hard scary the step of proposing to the woman that he loves you know when days are hard you know just just writing letters to to address those times like I'm not I might not be there with you physically but in there with you in my heart and in your heart yeah and see I don't think I could do letters I think I would probably just like canoe video like just have a camera and Tony Stark it Yup I love you three thousand but you know I mean that's that's the thing and that's one of the things that I love about recording is the fact that you know one of my favorite things that I have I've got two things from dad that means the world to me uh-huh and one is a letter that he wrote after he and I had gotten to a big argument about something and he wrote me said I'm not always the best dad but I always love you and then the other thing is his recording of his song man on cavalry which I've played in one of our previous episodes and to hear his voice and to hear his laugh those things means so much to me because there are times where I'm like like for whatever reason I'm feeling super sentimental about dowd right now and And I wish he was here and I know that you know one day I'll I'll get to see make it but I miss him in the here and the now and there are times where I'm like Gosh I wish I could just call him up on the phone and they're times when I'll hear somebody else laugh or even clear their throat and I swear it sounds just like my dad I mean it's weird how like throat clearing has a distinct sound for people but it does and and so this is all you know like really deep and heavy but I just uh-huh oh goodness yeah so so there's think what it comes down to is really like I I too would want to spend time reflecting and spend time in prayer and spend time just absorbing God's promises because I figure if you've only if you know that you've only got six months to live then that means that there's added Isaiah or Jeremiah One of those Old Testament Prophets just there's that repetitive be strong and courageous fear not take courage you know all of those kinds of exhortations to to us as believers and I would just want to rest in those and and find comfort and hope in those and then I would just want to tell everybody difficult as it may be yeah absolutely the importance of surrendering your life to God because really no matter where we are in life this life is just a blink of an eye and we need to be investing every moment of every day in our eternal future not just this here now because real future I think we're going to be a little bit better off and and that was one thing you know we've been also going through the the Dave Ramsey Z. financial peace thing and he's got all of this advice about saving for retirement and things and and that's all well and good.
