RUSH TRANSCRIPT In the ░░░░░░░░ House probably would have ░░░░░░░░ much faster and much ░░░░░░░░ coordinated Let s try ░░░░░░░░ just look at it ░░░░░░░░ the standpoint of where ░░░░░░░░ are right now versus ░░░░░░░░ we keep comparing China ░░░░░░░░ response now to what ░░░░░░░░ did back in 2003 ░░░░░░░░ SARS where are we ░░░░░░░░ terms of maybe where ░░░░░░░░ were versus ebola or ░░░░░░░░ we were with SARS ░░░░░░░░ by the we if ░░░░░░░░ mean the United States ░░░░░░░░ Everyone in America should ░░░░░░░░ a very big breath ░░░░░░░░ down and stop panicking ░░░░░░░░ being hysterical we are ░░░░░░░░ a little too much ░░░░░░░░ about this let s ░░░░░░░░ we have fewer than ░░░░░░░░ cases in the United ░░░░░░░░ they re concentrated in ░░░░░░░░ states California Washington State ░░░░░░░░ and Illinois That s ░░░░░░░░ Most importantly there are ░░░░░░░░ coming in from China ░░░░░░░░ s been no person ░░░░░░░░ person transmission it s ░░░░░░░░ everyone from China No ░░░░░░░░ there has been person ░░░░░░░░ person transmission in other ░░░░░░░░ because there s people ░░░░░░░░ never travelled to China ░░░░░░░░ have come down with ░░░░░░░░ That is true But ░░░░░░░░ the maximum country is ░░░░░░░░ with 14 cases so ░░░░░░░░ need to be a ░░░░░░░░ sober about it even ░░░░░░░░ China remember China is ░░░░░░░░ country of 1 4 ░░░░░░░░ people there have been ░░░░░░░░ know a few 7 ░░░░░░░░ cases that s one ░░░░░░░░ for roughly you know ░░░░░░░░ 000 people even if ░░░░░░░░ s a gross underestimate ░░░░░░░░ say 50 fold that ░░░░░░░░ one case for every ░░░░░░░░ 000 people and very ░░░░░░░░ death rate compared to ░░░░░░░░ So I think we ░░░░░░░░ to put it into ░░░░░░░░ That s a very ░░░░░░░░ point If you look ░░░░░░░░ just The death rate ░░░░░░░░ much lower than for ░░░░░░░░ Maybe 3 at this ░░░░░░░░ I guess there s ░░░░░░░░ a lot we don ░░░░░░░░ know it s still ░░░░░░░░ days It s much ░░░░░░░░ viral it s got ░░░░░░░░ many cases as we ░░░░░░░░ in SARS over 18 ░░░░░░░░ it s spread more ░░░░░░░░ but much lower mortality ░░░░░░░░ I think you ve ░░░░░░░░ it really well it ░░░░░░░░ it seems to spread ░░░░░░░░ easily But it s ░░░░░░░░ as veer Lent or ░░░░░░░░ as SARS that s ░░░░░░░░ very good thing I ░░░░░░░░ think we learned something ░░░░░░░░ isolating people they need ░░░░░░░░ be isolated for two ░░░░░░░░ It s not a ░░░░░░░░ longed period of time ░░░░░░░░ I think that s ░░░░░░░░ important Is that a ░░░░░░░░ that we re bringing ░░░░░░░░ back we brought 230 ░░░░░░░░ back on a plane ░░░░░░░░ And they re going ░░░░░░░░ be isolated for three ░░░░░░░░ just outside Los Angeles ░░░░░░░░ they re released is ░░░░░░░░ an appropriate amount of ░░░░░░░░ Yeah but let s ░░░░░░░░ quite clear they re ░░░░░░░░ being tested for the ░░░░░░░░ Not all of them ░░░░░░░░ they choose to be ░░░░░░░░ for the virus if ░░░░░░░░ have suspicions it s ░░░░░░░░ to those people to ░░░░░░░░ whether they want to ░░░░░░░░ tested Correct but I ░░░░░░░░ they will be tested ░░░░░░░░ the virus It s ░░░░░░░░ hard to see how ░░░░░░░░ is going to say ░░░░░░░░ Right And I think ░░░░░░░░ other factor you know ░░░░░░░░ are some defined symptoms ░░░░░░░░ is true people have ░░░░░░░░ identified to transmit it ░░░░░░░░ defined systems It is ░░░░░░░░ two week incubation period ░░░░░░░░ so I m actually ░░░░░░░░ confident that we re ░░░░░░░░ to restrict the spread ░░░░░░░░ the United States People ░░░░░░░░ remember not to panic ░░░░░░░░ people from China had ░░░░░░░░ here for two weeks ░░░░░░░░ re not going to ░░░░░░░░ spreading it Right And ░░░░░░░░ best thing we have ░░░░░░░░ the seasonality It s ░░░░░░░░ to go down as spring
