The other big events that took place over the last 24 hours, is related to the word pandemic. We’ve
been toying with the word pandemic and the WHO has now declared COat 19. a global pandemic, vaguely defined a pandemic means to disease prevalent over an entire country or the world.
Exactly, when you cross the line from… Outbreak to Pandemic is a question, but the show now says we have more than 125000 worldwide cases about 54000 of those cases are currently active now, it
has spread outside of the viruses origin in China over the last two weeks, the outside of China cases have increased 13 fold the number of countries in which it exists has tripled and it is now a
pandemic. Now in practice, what is this change? It doesn’t really change that much to declare it a pandemic it is certainly a signal to countries to do whatever they would do when a pandemic is
declared. countries sometimes have protocols. Where he anticipated global is this a different countries have different protocols and The Who, saying It’s a pandemic means roll out the pandemic
plan, the specifics of it very not every country has a pandemic plan, not every country like the United States is willing to actually be proactive and get moving on things. Now there is some good
news and some bad news, in all of this. The good news is China has this under control, China still has many active cases because they peak
that so many but each day China is having around 1000 people recover and they have somewhere around 20 to 50 new cases that’s a drastic daily reduction. And if things continue, that way Italy as
soon going to have more active cases than China, that’s good for China, it’s a very bad… For Italy. Another sort of bullet point of good news in the midst of a lot of bad news. South Korea has very
successfully implemented mass testing, we suspected that the early death rate that was sited at 34, a high… It may be waited towards older often Cline who smoke in China smoking of course, causing
a weekend respiratory system. It seems that the reason the death rate was so high early in China, and more so among men is for cultural reasons more men than women “smok in China, and a lot of
those early cases were in older male smokers. The South Korea, number is the fact that they are testing more and have a death rate of only 07 as something and we’re looking for bits and pieces of
something sort of bad news. The other positive thing is that as of yesterday, there were 81 countries 03/13/20 Page 4 of 18
davidpakmanshow20200312commercialfree with zero cases and 57 of the countries with cases had fewer than 10. by the time you listen to this
segment that probably will have already changed. There are lots of countries not successfully containing this the United States seems to be one of
them. Trump and Pence… Just won’t stop lying to us about test Availability, about the risk of this
exploding about the constant endless… Lying that they themselves are directing others, to do. Stop testing this, that, the other thing, it doesn’t stop.
What am I doing? Listen, I’m washing my hands more often before I don’t think I wash my hands every time I got home… Now I do, I’m probably staying in a little more when I go out, I’m opting
for places with fewer people, I’m not going to large gatherings I’m not going to concerts or sporting events I’m opting when I go to a coffee shop for the smaller, less crowded one, although I ended up
this week at one that… That is kind of a bigger more college crowded one. I have not cancelled, travel yet, I’m scheduled to travel in 13 days.
I’m gonna continue looking at the situation there. It is domestic travel. I am staying away from family and friends who are more vulnerable, either because of their age for their health situation.
That’s what’s going on for… Now, let me know what adjustments if any, you are making on Twitter at department make sure to follow me there and we’ll have more about this coming up later on in the
