WE KNOW THAT WE’RE WORKING ON IT, BUT HOW LIKELY IS IT THAT A HAVE BEEN SEEN WILL BE DEVELOPED AND WHEN? >> THE LIKELINESS IS VERY HIGH THAT A VACCINE WILL BE DEVELOP QUESTION IS WHEN AND THE QUESTION IS HOW EFFECTIVE IT WILL BE AND LOCALITIES OF VACCINES ARE BEING TRIALED RIGHT NOW AND ALL AROUND THE WORLD PEOPLE ARE VOLUNTEERING TO BE IN THESE

STUDIES, AND HOPEFULLY ONE OF THESE ARE PROVEN EFFECTIVE THERE IS INTERESTING DATA OUT OF CHINA TODAY ABOUT ONE OF THEIR VACCINE CANDIDATES THERE IS A LOT OF HOPE THAT THE VACCINE SCIENCE IS MOVING QUICKLY BUT WE STILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE TIMELINE-WISE, MAYBE LATER SAFE TRIALS LATER IN THE SUMMER, READY TO ROLL OUT IN PRODUCTION LATER IN EARLY 2021 >> Mike: ALL RIGHT HERE’S A QUESTION FROM PETE ON FACEBOOK: IS THERE ANY EVIDENCE THAT HAVING COVID-19 GIVES YOU IMMUNITY TO FUTURE CORONAVIRUS REINFECTION VERSUS WISHING IT DOES? >> THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW AND WE DON’T HAVE A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF IT YET THERE’S LOTS OF CONTROVERSIES AND DISCUSSIONS ABOUT WHAT AN IMMUNE TEST WOULD BE, WHAT THE BEST IMMUNE TEST IS, AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD BE IMMUNE IN A COMMUNITY LOTS OF STUDIES ARE COMING OUT LOOKING AT DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES SAYING THAT THERE IS 2% IMMUNITY OR 1% IMMUNITY OR 10% IMMUNITY AND A LOT OF THAT’S DIFFICULT TO INTERPRET BECAUSE WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THE TEST ACTUALLY IS, AND WE DON’T KNOW WHAT POPULATION WAS SAMPLE BUT WE’RE LEARNING MORE AND WE DON’T KNOW DEFINITIVELY WHETHER THAT ANTIBODY WILL PROTECT YOU FROM FUTURE IF HE CANS ONLY TIME WILL TELL >> HERE’S A FOLLOW-UP QUESTION FOR FROM FROM JEFF, IT SEEMS LIKE AUTHORITIES ARE RELUCTANT TO USE ANSWER BODY TESTS DUE TO THE HIGH FALSE POOS RATE AND I IS THERE ANY WAY TO FINDS OUT WHAT THE RATE OF IMMUNITY BE HERE IN B.C.? >> WAIT UNTIL WE HAVE A VERY GOOD ANSWER BODY TEST THAT’S BEEN VALUING DATED AND TESTED ACROSS DIFFERENT SETTINGS, WE CAN’T RECOMMEND ONE TO SAY YOU ARE IMMUNE SO YOU CAN EXPOSE YOURS FREELY LOTS OF OTHER PLACES ARE TALKING ABOUT MOUNTAINS PASSPORTS WHERE YOU’VE HAD AN INFECTION YOU CAN GO WHENEVER YOU WANT, EVEN WORKING IN A HOSPITAL WITHOUT PROTECTION WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH CONFIDENCE IN THE SCIENCE THAT YOU CAN’T BE REINFECTED >> HOW DOES ANTIBODY TESTING WORK? SO IT JUST LOOKS FOR AN ANTIBODY IN YOUR BLOOD, AND IT LOOKS FOR A SPECIFIC ANTIBODY THAT’S SPECIFIC TO THIS CORONAVIRUS BASED ON SOME OF THE MARKERS ON THE SURFACE OF THE VIRUS THE PROBLEM IS THERE MAY BE CROSS REACTIVITY TO OTHER CORONAVIRUSES AND LIKE ALL ANTIBODY TESTS IT MAY NOT BE A PERFECT TEST, IN GENERAL BUT IT’S GETTING BETTER AND I THINK AS WE SORT OF REFINE OUR TESTING CAPABILITIES WE’LL GET TO A PLACE WHERE WE’LL BE ABLE TO TEST TO SEE IF YOU HAVE AN ANTIBODY THE QUESTION IS, DOES HAVING THAT ANTIBODY PROVE YOU’RE PROTECTED, AND WE HAVEN’T FOUND THAT ANSWER YET >> Mike: ALL RIGHT, ANOTHER QUESTION THAT’S COME IN, YOU’VE BEEN WATCHING THIS VIRUS RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING WHAT HAS SURPRISED YOU ABOUT IT AND ITS SPREAD? THAT’S A GOOD QUESTION I THINK ITS SPREAD IS THE THING THAT SURPRISED PEOPLE THE MOST, THE TRANSMISSIBILITY EARLY DATA FROM CHINA, THE R KNOT WHICH WAS WIDELY DISCUSSED, A NUMBER OF PEOPLE INFECTED BY ONE PERSON IN CHINA WE WERE AT 2, 2.45, AND 3 AND THEN IT SPREAD THROUGHOUT EUROPE AND THE U.S. AND YOU SEE THE NUMBER SIGNIFICANTLY TO THE 3S AND 4S SO FOR EVERY ONE PERSON WHO HAS THE DISEASE 3 TO 4 NUMBER GET IF HE COULD AND THAT’S A HIGH NUMBER FOR A RESPIRATORY INFECTION IN B.C. WE’VE BROUGHT TO DOWN TO ABOUT 1; WHICH IS A SIGN WE’RE DOING THE RIGHT THING AND IT JUST MEANS WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT >> THIS QUESTION, THERE HAS BEEN MORE AND MORE RESEARCH SHOWING A LINK BETWEEN MORTALITY AND POLLUTION WHAT’S YOUR TAKE ON THAT CONNECTION? >> IT’S AN INTERESTING ONE YOU CAN THINK ABOUT BASELINE LUNG DISEASE BEING HIGHER IN PLACES WHERE THERE’S MORE POLLUTION BUT ALSO THERE IS WHAT WE CALL A CONFOUNDER, WHERE THERE IS ANOTHER THING LINKED TO THE POLLUTION IN THIS SETTING IF YOU LIVE IN A PLACE WITH LOTS OF POLLUTION YOU MAY NOT LIVE IN AS WEALTHY ENVIRONMENT, AND IF THAT’S THE CASE YOU MAY BE AT MORE RISK OF GETTING THE DISEASE AND SEVERE DISEASE SO I WOULDN’T LINK POLLUTION DIRECTLY TO THE PROBLEM OF GETTING SEVERE DISEASE AND MORTALITY A I WOULD MORE LINK BEING AROUND POLLUTION AND THE THINGS ATTACHED TO THAT >> Mike: WE’RE GETTING QUITE A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT THE EASING OF RESTRICTIONS WE’RE OBVIOUSLY A WAYS OFF BUT WE SAW SASKATCHEWAN STARTING TO GO DOWN THAT ROAD, NEW BRUNSWICK TODAY TALKING ABOUT HAVING SORT OF A TWO FAMILY BUBBLE YOU’VE HEARD ABOUT THAT A WHAT MIGHT IT START TO LOOK LIKE FOR US HERE, PEOPLE ASKING WHAT MIGHT WE SEE INITIALLY? >> IT’S DIFFICULT TO SAY, EXACTLY I’M NOT GOING TO COMMENT ON BEHALF OF THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH AND HOW THEY’RE GOING TO DEFINE THAT PHASED, SLOW, MEASURED

APPROACHED TO THING BRITISH COLUMBIA HAS BEEN COMMENDED THUS FAR IN WHAT IT’S DONE IN THE PHASING OFITY LOCKDOWN GOING BACKWARDS FROM FEBRUARY TO MARCH AND I’M SURE COMING OUT OF THE WILL BE A PHASED APPROACH WHAT WILL COME FIRST, WE’LL SEE WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO HAVE IS A FIRM INFRASTRUCTURE IN THE PUBLIC HEALTH SEEN, BEING ABLE TO TEST PEOPLE, TRACE THEM AND ISOLATE THEM IF YOU HAVE THOSE THINGS FULLY CAPABLE AND YOUR HOSPITALS AND HEALTH SYSTEM CAN COPE WITH THINGS YOU CAN START THINKING ABOUT HOW TO OPEN THINGS UP AND WHAT GETS OPENED UP FIRST, WHETHER YOU CAN GO VISIT YOUR NEIGHBOURS OR LET SCHOOLS REOPEN, WHAT TO OPEN FIRST AND IN WHAT ORDER, THAT’S A DIFFERENT CONVERSATION >> Mike: HERE’S AN E-MAIL FROM CAROL, ASKING, HOW CAN WE COMPARE OUR STATS WITH OTHER COUNTRIES HAD SOME COUNTRIES AND A NUMBER OF U.S. STATES ONLY REPORT HOSPITAL DEATHS? >> IT’S A VERY GOOD QUESTION ALL SORTS OF PLACES REPORT THINGS DIFFERENTLY REPORTING BY NUMBER OF CASES IS JUST A MATTER OF HUMAN TESTS YOU DO AT THE POPULATION LEVEL SO IF YOU DO LESS TESTS YOU’LL HAVE LESS CASES SO YOU’LL SEEM LIKE YOU’RE DOING BETTER THAT’S WHY WE TEND TO REPORT HOSPITALIZATIONS AND HOSPITALIZED DEATH AS BEING A COMPAREATOR BECAUSE YOU CAN’T FAKE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL OR EVEN DYING FROM THE DISEASE SO THAT’S PROBABLY A MOORE ACCURATE METRIC ACROSS DIFFERENT PLACES WITH DIFFERENT TESTING STRATEGIES THAN JUST THE SHEER NUMBER OF CASES >> Mike: ALL RIGHT, THIS ONE FROM BARBARA ON FACEBOOK ASKING OR SAYING, I KNEW FOUR PEOPLE WITH PNEUMONIA BACK IN JANUARY COULD THAT HAVE BEEN COVID-19, AND A FRIEND HAD A MILD STROKE THIS MONTH COULD THAT HAVE BEEN RELATED TO THE VIRUS? YES, AND LOTS OF PEOPLE AROUND MY NEIGHBOURHOOD HAVE ASKED ME AND TEXTED ME ABOUT WHETHER THEY HAD A COLD IN DECEMBER OR JANUARY, THEY’RE PROBABLY IMMUNE, RIGHTING? AND I CAN’T — OBVIOUSLY WE CAN’T SAY DEFINITIVELY NOT BASED ON WHAT WE’VE SEEN FROM THE VIRUS AND WHERE IT SORT OF PROGRESSED OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS, IT’S UNLIKELY THAT EARLY JANUARY MEAN I CAN’TS WERE ASSOCIATED WITH — PNEUMONIAS WERE ASSOCIATED WITH CORONAVIRUS SO I WOULD SAY IT WAS NOT THAT IF IT WAS MARCH, APRIL, THAT WOULD BE A SEPARATE CONVERSATION >> Mike: HERE’S AN E-MAIL FROM PETER ASKING OF THE OVER 1100 PEOPLE WHO HAVE RECOVERED FROM COVID-19, HOW MANY HAVE HEALTH ISSUES — I DON’T KNOW IF WE CAN GET A SPECIFIC NUMBER ON THIS, BUT HOW MANY HAVE HEALTH ISSUES SUCH AS KIDNEY OR HEART DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE VIRUS? THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION WE’RE STILL LEARNING ABOUT THE LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF HAVING A SEVERE CORONAVIRUS INFECTION AND IN CHINA, FOR EXAMPLE, THERE ARE SOME NUMBERS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUBSEQUENT LUNG DISEASE AND SUBSEQUENT KIDS ANY DISEASE FROM THE ACUTE PROBLEM IN CANADA IT’S STILL EARLY SO OUR OUTBREAK, WHICH IS JUST SURGED ABOUT A MONTH AGO, WE’RE STILL LEARNING ABOUT WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN LONG-TERM AND THERE’S LOTS OF GOOD RESEARCH ACROSS THE COUNTRY ABOUT EXACTLY THAT QUESTION >> WE HAVE TIME FOR ONE MORE QUESTION LET ME ASK YOU WHAT YOU’RE ANTICIPATING IN THE DAYS AHEAD, WHAT DO YOU THINK WE’RE GOING TO BE SEEING HERE IN B.C SPECIFICALLY? >> WE’RE GOING TO HAVE LITTLE SPIKES HERE AND THERE AND I THINK WATCHING OUR INSTITUTIONS VERY CAREFULLY, OBVIOUSLY WATCHING OUR MEAT PROCESSING PLANT IS IMPORTANT, WATCHING OUR VEILS AND LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES THESE ARE THE PLACES THAT ARE MOST CONCERNED ABOUT, MORE SO THAN COMMUNITY SPREAD OR HOUSEHOLD SPREAD IT’S THE PLACES WHERE PEOPLE ARE FORCED TO LIVE AND WORK CLOSE TO EACH OTHER WITHOUT ADEQUATE PROTECTION AND SO WE REALLY NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO THOSE PLACES AS WE SORT OF MOVE TO THIS NEXT PHASE OF OUTBREAK RESPONSE WHEN PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO TALK ABOUT OPENING UP WE REALLY AREN’T READY YET >> GREAT QUESTIONS AND GREAT ANSWERS, WHY MUR THY, ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU FOR JOINING US >> AT 6:47 A LIVE SHOT LOOKING UP CAMBIE STREET TONIGHT A BIT OF A DULL DAY IN THE LOWER
