Answer from 830000 foot perspective is that -- that's right absolutely bring -- doctor -- coomer from Mount Sinai Medical Center.
You know what that we mentioned Peter Barnes to -- and go with fifty million units of this.
When it went outside an example of what I like there's several of them but these -- these treatments out there.
I also read -- -- -- -- you're trying expiration on those what are the odds that we have to add to those are they about to expire can sort of talk us through -- safety supply.
Of it actually is.
Well actually in Vietnam have expired and them I was just reading a report earlier where they're hoping to be able to be used.
There have stockpiles that have expired and then hope is that -- again.
It's -- what they may have to do is we sterilize them and and then once again test their efficacy so.
You know I think we're gonna be fine in the US regards to this to -- stockpile that we have here but with the -- what.
-- the -- start to sounded a little reserve deaths in Mexico we know that we've seen no deaths outside of Mexico in the forty or so cases here in the US Australia.
-- -- You know it seems like as it gets further -- from the epicenter becomes less blood.
It was called borrowings as well -- would look at what point do we start having concern here in the US.
Well I think we need to keep it -- perspective me right now we have powered by the end of today maybe forty cases out of millions of Americans.
Across the nation that we have but this seemed to be affected or that we suspect to be effective that we can keep that a prospective number -- for talking about a small number of people.
-- when -- talking about the fact that Mexico that have such -- high number of deaths yes we get we start to get very very concerned.
Whether or not being that this is more mild here for reasons as it at -- because they have more access to medical care people are on alert the people are seeking out medical.
-- care more quickly.
Than we do have the treatments available.
That may be the reason why it's a -- -- -- form here so but right now we believe it's the same strain.
Doctor -- we we should go over some of the basics for our viewers I mean if they're just getting home from work tuning into happy -- -- you're hearing all this stuff.
-- and you know it's called Swine Flu but you don't get it from pigs or eating pork so why is it called Swine Flu in you know go to the basics of how you.
People are getting it then but.
Actually Swine Flu isn't as -- viral strain of influenza that does come initially came from pixels.
This viral strain that's going around to actually act combination from swine.
Birds or Avian.
And humans and it seems to have combined and caused this new strain.
I find virus.
So absolutely does not come from eating pork I mean you can feel very -- about eating -- because it's actually transmitted.
By air borne trend transmissions so it's person to person if somebody sneezes or coughs on you.
And that's why they say don't get it from infected pigs because it's the your -- in the droplets from the -- But not actually from consuming the -- -- -- -- around the work.
Appear out cleaning your hands -- well it can work some of them do have -- anti viral effect and we use them in hospitals all the time that we say you know once you've used it you know five times consecutively than you really still need to wash your hands with -- with water so.
So doctor I mean you say that it's a -- of very low percentage of Americans that haven't been here in the city -- the support concentrated and there are fewer people in the city I'm -- -- subway every day.
Going to be wearing a mask she says they -- that would -- The appointment but he put on their hands felt -- -- -- and noble brand name.
And do what I mean just sort of walk us through logistically what -- -- need to be doing.
I think it comes down to common sense I mean you're not gonna you know try to -- putting yourself in situations that people are -- effect coming at you.
He's somebody next -- that -- just had to create that personal space that you come to know and love that you don't get a New York.
Let's you know -- try to avoid making physical contact with them you know -- the Howie Mandell handshake.
Do or don't do anything at all with them just.
It helps the Howie Mandell mentioned that.
But -- I didn't get having yeah.
Let's tally Lendale that's why it's flying -- I didn't flying is safe -- -- not I.
Think the people that if you can't fly you know if you really think and here you're concerned that -- -- -- have a a serious look back at yourself checked out first before you -- because you actually are putting other people have -- But we've we've all traveled I'm sure you've come back from airplane trips and gotten sick at holidays later right up at the air is not well ventilated spot while circulated so.
You know just.
Use some common sense of your back take a flight and you know you're very ill just can't get in touch deduction -- that you get the clearance from them to -- supplying safe as long as no one else in the plain sick but exactly.
Right outside my -- once I got this -- -- coomer thank you for joining.
