Before we -- to -- how our political leaders are suffering from foot and mouth disease and they amp up the alarm bells on big blue.
Let's check out the medical back Sally this is -- from our happy our regular doctor Marc Siegel a world authority on the Avian flu and other infectious diseases.
The key here he says is that -- -- is generally.
Not spratt pass first and second pick them this means that it is not being transmitted why Lee.
And it's currently not that viral it costing you could -- -- than his words it's a mild.
The virus which is not to say however that there is no danger here the disease isn't real but it has -- -- right.
In the opinion of respected medical professionals.
And the doom and gloom is coming.
-- -- -- -- -- I would tell -- members of my family and I have I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now.
It's not that is going to Mexico it's you're confined aircraft when one person sneezes.
It goes all the way through the aircraft that's me.
I why would not be at this point if -- if they had another way of transportation.
Suggesting they ride the subway.
-- no I'm doomed I don't.
Mean if our aviation and travel industries take a hit we know look -- in the name.
Not that -- Michael Brown former undersecretary at Homeland Security joins us to answer that question mr.
brown so glad to have you on -- hurt the.
It's great to be back but you know -- -- second I think so what are you trying to what are you trying to do you -- -- airline industry so we can nationalize the -- until you.
I mean OK so then the White House back track that as usual there and says none -- now.
You know he didn't really mean it's not safe to fly or you know it's not -- to get on subway didn't really mean that.
Well what did he mean -- -- and I would I would what do they Albany look.
I'm so good in that intro that you used the medical expert -- -- reached out to it to a toxicologist and -- I needed some facts.
What's going on here that in in in one reply good reply was.
This whole thing is not.
If it's not -- what's really going alone.
That the if you do you console series with the WHO says all of humanity is in danger which is what the woman -- ahead.
-- come -- government telling the truth what's really going on.
Another thing that drove me crazy is not as he goes I would tell people if they have another motor transportation not to take a somewhat -- what.
Most people don't have another -- -- -- No motor transportation they won the unless some way to begin with that they had a car service and by the -- yet.
Lots of people.
There -- New York missed all of New Yorkers.
Yeah I thought let's let's have this have Air Force One -- -- the Montreal New Yorkers that they don't think little Arnold trying don't take the subway.
-- Michael let's tonight I got to do this a I for one think this is over hype I think it's part of the Obama's evil plan to push his national health care agenda.
However sir you have indeed be the face for the let's -- under react in given.
That what happened -- Hurricane Katrina.
Right you know where's the where do you draw the line is -- over reaction yours is under is are happy medium.
I think there is a happy medium and I -- I'm did series from Iceland that the best thing the government to do this coming out to have one spokesperson.
Have somebody from the CDC.
-- have talked about you from NIH come out and say you're the facts about H1N1.
-- here's what you do to to protect yourself you wash your hands.
You stay out of you know crowded areas the best that you can't that if you feel sick stay home don't go to war.
I just want some objective facts and not the -- Mr.
-- -- -- -- -- talk about this more later on in the show but I want to get your reaction as well that says you know you have the World Health Organization you have China now they have these other countries.
I think in Europe as well they're saying don't travel to the US banned all pork products from the US you know it -- Attempt to to crush us you know economically -- wet yet when they had the Avian bird flu.
We debate and everything -- from -- their country we -- travel we did advise people not to travel there.
I'll tell you what were being naive if we don't think that when they -- our pork production they barely any thing.
That somebody in some ministry somewhere else bickering and going hah -- hall look how we -- them America.
So that you can didn't know looking through -- Then as it could escalate I'm here don't we are being somewhat dismissive about it but it could get it.
To being a serious problem I don't know if and when I mean if if if those.
Pandemic level five alert that is that they'll go.
Not the world.
Not not the band but the World Health Organization is issuing.
-- I mean is that serious or not they're telling me it's not that serious so don't need to wait -- it's at level sixty really -- -- do I get scared.
See I think what you do you have to watch the right of the progression.
Because as long as the death break remains somewhat.
We look compared to the normal flu season these death rates are very low so slow the progression doesn't -- you know.
-- rhythmically of them exponentially start expanding.
Then as -- as your doctor your experts say it if not jumping from person to person who's fault would that second third person.
That starts doing that and you see these numbers exponentially blow the -- There we should start getting -- that's why the government needs to come out now.
And just be objective.
What we're watching this we're concerned about it we don't really have good antibiotics and our -- -- this medication so let's just you know have a healthy work.
Deep cognizant -- but be careful don't have all the hot.
By -- rob thanks for joining us my friend.
