RUSH TRANSCRIPT Ryan Young ░░░░░░░░ you for that reporting ░░░░░░░░ of this and yet ░░░░░░░░ president s words last ░░░░░░░░ we are in a ░░░░░░░░ good place with respect ░░░░░░░░ Covid Let me bring ░░░░░░░░ Dr William Hazeltine and ░░░░░░░░ professor at Harvard medical ░░░░░░░░ Good morning professor If ░░░░░░░░ can get your big ░░░░░░░░ 000 foot view on ░░░░░░░░ we are in this ░░░░░░░░ in terms of fighting ░░░░░░░░ because you ve got ░░░░░░░░ in Arizona You ve ░░░░░░░░ it in Texas You ░░░░░░░░ got it in California ░░░░░░░░ ve got it in ░░░░░░░░ in terms of seeing ░░░░░░░░ where will we be ░░░░░░░░ weeks from now if ░░░░░░░░ stays are a lagging ░░░░░░░░ Well there are a ░░░░░░░░ of things to think ░░░░░░░░ First of all with ░░░░░░░░ epidemic in our south ░░░░░░░░ southwest is out of ░░░░░░░░ Yeah It s a ░░░░░░░░ situation and if people ░░░░░░░░ t observe very careful ░░░░░░░░ distancing it will get ░░░░░░░░ worse This virus has ░░░░░░░░ reason to stop It ░░░░░░░░ highly transmissible When people ░░░░░░░░ together it will be ░░░░░░░░ and the only thing ░░░░░░░░ can do now is ░░░░░░░░ people to be as ░░░░░░░░ as possible It is ░░░░░░░░ of control Second thing ░░░░░░░░ s happening now is ░░░░░░░░ the hospitals You asked ░░░░░░░░ about them Yeah And ░░░░░░░░ s something called crisis ░░░░░░░░ of care that is ░░░░░░░░ it s already implemented ░░░░░░░░ Arizona and it may ░░░░░░░░ in a number of ░░░░░░░░ other states What does ░░░░░░░░ actually mean It means ░░░░░░░░ if you re old ░░░░░░░░ get sent home without ░░░░░░░░ and you die That ░░░░░░░░ what it means We ░░░░░░░░ on the brink of ░░░░░░░░ treating people There s ░░░░░░░░ whole equation that you ░░░░░░░░ going to put into ░░░░░░░░ that says are you ░░░░░░░░ treating or not You ░░░░░░░░ older people say in ░░░░░░░░ where you have older ░░░░░░░░ in retirement communities that ░░░░░░░░ in with Covid the ░░░░░░░░ will be at the ░░░░░░░░ within a few weeks ░░░░░░░░ they will turn them ░░░░░░░░ and they will have ░░░░░░░░ go die at home ░░░░░░░░ s already official in ░░░░░░░░ that that has been ░░░░░░░░ Crisis standards of care ░░░░░░░░ It is about to ░░░░░░░░ I believe implemented in ░░░░░░░░ other states as capacity ░░░░░░░░ need federal help to ░░░░░░░░ states in a massive ░░░░░░░░ to avoid sending people ░░░░░░░░ to die and as ░░░░░░░░ said again I ve ░░░░░░░░ carefully at those standards ░░░░░░░░ care What it means ░░░░░░░░ if you are old ░░░░░░░░ ask do you have ░░░░░░░░ year to live if ░░░░░░░░ survive five years to ░░░░░░░░ How long do you ░░░░░░░░ to live if you ░░░░░░░░ If they think it ░░░░░░░░ too short you get ░░░░░░░░ home without care It ░░░░░░░░ pretty serious to think ░░░░░░░░ we in the United ░░░░░░░░ are at the brink ░░░░░░░░ that and the only ░░░░░░░░ to avoid that in ░░░░░░░░ states as the infections ░░░░░░░░ and hospitals fill up ░░░░░░░░ to have massive federal ░░░░░░░░ as we were having ░░░░░░░░ New York when we ░░░░░░░░ it would happen here ░░░░░░░░ And we had the ░░░░░░░░ comfort and mercy in ░░░░░░░░ hospital ships that it ░░░░░░░░ like they need to ░░░░░░░░ to places We have ░░░░░░░░ national parks setting up ░░░░░░░░ we had hospitals in ░░░░░░░░ Park Yeah We have ░░░░░░░░ begin to get massive ░░░░░░░░ to save the people ░░░░░░░░ are already getting ill ░░░░░░░░ know there is an ░░░░░░░░ bigger wave on its ░░░░░░░░ So you have as ░░░░░░░░ all wait for a ░░░░░░░░ you have said repeatedly ░░░░░░░░ s a reason for ░░░░░░░░ that medical solution to ░░░░░░░░ crisis will soon be ░░░░░░░░ hand Are you talking ░░░░░░░░ therapeutics like a Remdesivir ░░░░░░░░ the news we had ░░░░░░░░ out of regeneron which ░░░░░░░░ to help in terms ░░░░░░░░ lessening the severity for ░░░░░░░░ length of time that ░░░░░░░░ had lasted or are ░░░░░░░░ talking about something else ░░░░░░░░ no I m definitely ░░░░░░░░ talking about Remdesivir I ░░░░░░░░ not a fan of ░░░░░░░░ drug I think it ░░░░░░░░ way oversold However there ░░░░░░░░ drugs like the ones ░░░░░░░░ regeneron and other companies ░░░░░░░░ developing monoclonal antibodies that ░░░░░░░░ not only treat in ░░░░░░░░ early stages of infection ░░░░░░░░ very likely will provide ░░░░░░░░ shield for those who ░░░░░░░░ exposed like healthcare workers ░░░░░░░░ a family member of ░░░░░░░░ who is infected The ░░░░░░░░ of these would be ░░░░░░░░ administer it for high ░░░░░░░░ individuals people like emergency ░░░░░░░░ workers healthcare workers that ░░░░░░░░ very high risk and ░░░░░░░░ who know that they ░░░░░░░░ been exposed and it ░░░░░░░░ serve as a bridge ░░░░░░░░ a time when we ░░░░░░░░ have a safe vaccine ░░░░░░░░ m mostly concerned not ░░░░░░░░ the efficacy of the ░░░░░░░░ but the safety of ░░░░░░░░ vaccine So this is ░░░░░░░░ positive news and it ░░░░░░░░ not just one drug ░░░░░░░░ are many drugs in ░░░░░░░░ pipeline This virus is ░░░░░░░░ ahead Doctor I was ░░░░░░░░ to say the president ░░░░░░░░ last night and I ░░░░░░░░ quoting him here We ░░░░░░░░ going to be in ░░░░░░░░ to three to four ░░░░░░░░ I think we are ░░░░░░░░ to be in very ░░░░░░░░ shape Is there any ░░░░░░░░ in which that is ░░░░░░░░ case No there is ░░░░░░░░ I m sad to ░░░░░░░░ there is no scenario ░░░░░░░░ which we are going ░░░░░░░░ be in good shape ░░░░░░░░ three or four weeks ░░░░░░░░ or four months if ░░░░░░░░ do things right possibly ░░░░░░░░ three or four weeks ░░░░░░░░ And the other issue ░░░░░░░░ school openings I have ░░░░░░░░ many people you know ░░░░░░░░ ve written this book ░░░░░░░░ family guide for Covid ░░░░░░░░ questions and answers and ░░░░░░░░ everybody is asking me ░░░░░░░░ is about schools We ░░░░░░░░ reopen schools in areas ░░░░░░░░ have relatively low disease ░░░░░░░░ but even there we ░░░░░░░░ going to need massive ░░░░░░░░ assistance The local people ░░░░░░░░ afford to implement anything ░░░░░░░░ s needed and the ░░░░░░░░ has to help and ░░░░░░░░ federal government has to ░░░░░░░░ and it s okay ░░░░░░░░ schools but open schools ░░░░░░░░ additional support They re ░░░░░░░░ to need just the ░░░░░░░░ of support they need ░░░░░░░░ factories and companies will ░░░░░░░░ a lot of extra ░░░░░░░░ to put in all ░░░░░░░░ safeguards and no one ░░░░░░░░ talking about that and ░░░░░░░░ teachers and the teachers ░░░░░░░░ have got to become ░░░░░░░░ because this is not ░░░░░░░░ to be a normal ░░░░░░░░ There will be all ░░░░░░░░ of safeguards for the ░░░░░░░░ and the children There ░░░░░░░░ be kids in pods ░░░░░░░░ it is a very ░░░░░░░░ situation and it is ░░░░░░░░ that cannot be addressed ░░░░░░░░ massive new funding If ░░░░░░░░ want to have students ░░░░░░░░ in safe districts you ░░░░░░░░ got to get more ░░░░░░░░ for public schools We ░░░░░░░░ the head of one ░░░░░░░░ the biggest teachers unions ░░░░░░░░ Florida joining us ahead ░░░░░░░░ hour and we ll ░░░░░░░░ that Ask him about ░░░░░░░░ flexibility How are these ░░░░░░░░ I have a lot ░░░░░░░░ friends who say only ░░░░░░░░ out of six teachers ░░░░░░░░ going to help with ░░░░░░░░ education The other ones ░░░░░░░░ t like it I ░░░░░░░░ be I ll ask ░░░░░░░░ that and we ll ░░░░░░░░ you back Dr Hazeltine ░░░░░░░░ m sorry we re ░░░░░░░░ of time I appreciate ░░░░░░░░ Thank you very
