Microbiologist discusses coronavirus and its impact on the U.S.

published on July 17, 2020

There are many questions that seem to be up in the air regarding the coronavirus as the number of cases continues to rise i caught up with dr dean hart a microbiologist and published author on the transmission of viruses and diseases to get his take on

The matter take a look there have been a lot of mixed messages from dr anthony fauci when the pandemic first broke out whether it was the way it was transmitted or whether to wear a face

Mask as a doctor yourself what's your reaction to how dr fauci is communicating with the public and his recommendations oh i do not believe anything he is

Recommended comes as a doctor in the trenches as a clinician i think he is a hundred percent trying to portray himself as a scientist doctors heal a physician heals your fellow

Man uh dr patch is a scientist and as a scientist first you can't put it in a time clock i'm surprised he keeps telling us about a vaccine in too short a time and the second thing with science is

That it does change the data as you get more data you learn more certainty about what's going on you're an author on the transmission of viruses and diseases

Why is that that some people don't even know they've been infected with cova 19 being asymptomatic well it literally kills others well microorganisms are ubiquitous in nature

What would kill one person a staph epidermidis on your skin would be protective to another person now this thing is one of the most pernicious

Contagious deadly germs that we've seen in a pandemic for a hundred years there are reports there could be a second wave in the fall do you believe this will be the case

Uh whoever's saying that is absurd what is what happened is they they also said it would go away in the summer those people and face it it didn't go away any summer i was in

The only thing what had that happened it came to a community burns itself out on the community the vulnerable certain chromosomal types certain blood types are sensitive and more vulnerable

And certainly the elderly are certainly more vulnerable and it comes to the area and then it moves on when it burns itself out is what it looks like it's it we will all be exposed to it it

Seems to be getting to be ubiquitous to nature it's not a question of if but well the key is to slow it down though some officials on the state level are closing down some sectors of the economy

Again such as california how effective are these lockdown measures oh this is all that mankind can do before

A lot of elderly people die if we don't do things you can assume we could lose a million people mostly 65 and over but we can lose a lot of extra people that

More than the two and a half million we typically lose in a year as an american that's that's a small percent of our population no but the beauty of life is not

Living forever but the ugliness of life would be getting covered and then lastly i want to ask you how does the coronavirus compare to the flu as far as the mortality rate and that sort

So it's seven to ten times more mortality rate in the elderly now is it um it's better for the children than the flu so it depends on your age and comorbidities

Especially high blood pressure cardiovascular disease what we can only do with this case is slow the progression down and maybe we'll get a cure or a vaccine someday

But we wearing masks not going to bars and and and singing these are things that will slow it down it won't solve the problem it'll it'll take a little time so hospital beds will be available as
