SundayShows-w-candyDr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on ABC’s “This Week

“I think this idea that every single hospital can take care of a seriously ill Ebola patient right now is just not true. So what we’re going to be doing with the CDC and the state health authorities and the hospitals themselves, we know we have four hospitals that are there now, including my own hospital, but we need to pre-train people so that if we need to surge up we can. But I think we don’t want to get people to think that any hospital, community hospital is totally equipped to care for the patient. They must be able to identify and isolate and then from there get them to a place where you have pre-trained people who know how to do it.”

Fauci on CBS’s “Face the Nation

“The guidelines that were on the CDC were WHO guidelines that worked well for many, many years in approaching patients who have Ebola in the African setting, which is in a much less well developed setting, not the tertiary care. Now when you have patients here we do things that are much more aggressive with patients — intubation, hemodialysis — so the explore level is a different, particularly because you are keeping patients alive, because you have the capability. So, those guidelines had some aspects about it that we are going to improve on. For example, the guidelines did have some exposure of skin in the sense you had a mask but there was some skin that was exposed and some hair that was exposed. That is the thing that now in our setting of tertiary care we want to make sure that that’s no longer the case, that you have essentially everything covered.” Read more

Highlights From The 10.12.14 Sunday Shows

SundayShows-w-candyCDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden on CBS’s “Face the Nation

“The fact is that the individual who became ill who was, as per protocol, self-monitoring immediately when they developed symptoms. They isolated themselves, they were promptly isolated at the hospital so that any further spread from that individual was stopped and fundamentally, at this point, there are four things that we are doing. First is to make sure that that individual is cared for safely and effectively. Second, we’re identifying that individual’s contacts and our CDC team lead for this investigation on the ground in Dallas interviewed that individual in detail. Third, we now consider all of the health care workers who cared for the indexed patient potentially to have been exposed. And we’ll be rostering those individuals and determining which require active follow up in addition to their self-monitoring. And fourth, we will conduct a full investigation of what happens before health workers go in, what happens when they’re there, and what happens in taking out- taking off their protective equipment.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on ABC’s “This Week

“Well, certainly there have to have been an inadvertent, innocent breach of the protocol of taking care of a patient within the personal protective equipment. That extremely rarely happens. We’ve been taking care of Ebola patients since 1976. Groups like Doctors Without Borders who do that almost never have an infection because of the experience of doing this. So this happened certainly because there was — and the CDC is trying to find out now just what that breach was. But there was a breach in protocol, unfortunate for this very courageous health care worker.” Read more

NBC’s Deborah Turness Reportedly Considered Jon Stewart as ‘Meet The Press’ Moderator

jonstewartBefore deciding on Chuck Todd to replace David Gregory as moderator of “Meet the Press,” NBC News president Deborah Turness apparently considered Jon Stewart.

New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman cited three unnamed senior television sources, with one saying that NBC was “ready to back the Brink’s truck up,” in the network’s effort to do “anything” to get the host of Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” to agree.

Sherman writes:

“It makes sense that NBC would make a run at Stewart. The comedian-cum-media-critic possesses something that broadcast executives covet: a loyal, young audience. And it’s not the first time NBC tried recruiting him. According to sources, NBC Entertainment courted Stewart several years ago for a 10 p.m. variety show (the slot ultimately went to Jay Leno).”

On Wednesday, Todd poked fun at the rumors on Twitter, tweeting a combination of his program’s closing line and a popular segment from Stewart’s program.

 

Hey Isn’t That…Teddy Roosevelt on ‘FOX News Sunday?’

image2A surprising and unlikely Washington personality joined host Chris Wallace and panel guests Brit HumeJuan WilliamsJulie Pace; and George Will for the closing of yesterday’s “FOX News Sunday.”

With his team on the road competing in the National League Division Series against the San Francisco Giants, the Washington National’s Teddy Roosevelt, usually seen racing around Nationals Park, stopped by the set of the Sunday public affairs program.

“We’ve been counting on our lucky Jayson Werth garden gnome to help us root for the Nationals, but now, we’re calling in reinforcements,” said Wallace before the show’s wrap. “So one of the racing presidents from Nats Park, Teddy, is here today to help us urge on our team. Go Nats!”

We too recently stopped by the set of “FOX News Sunday.”  Check out our behind the scenes with Wallace here.

Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control, on ABC’s “This Week” : “Well, first off, here in the U.S., I remain quite confident we will not have a widespread outbreak. We will stop it in its tracks, because we’ve got infection control in hospitals and public health that tracks and isolates people if they get symptoms. In Africa, the story is different. We did help Nigeria, Lagos, stop an importation. They had one case. They ended up having to do 19,000 home visits. They had more than 1,000 health workers involved. We had to bring our own staff, a dozen of them, and 40 of our trained epidemiologists from around Nigeria to help with that response. And they look like they’ve stopped the outbreak there. But that kind of intensive response is hard to marshal everywhere. And I’m quite concerned the longer this goes on in these three West African countries, the greater the possibility that other countries in Africa are going to have to fight this on their territory, as well.

CDC director Dr. Tom Frieden on NBC’s “Meet the Press” : “The most promising drug, ZMapp, there’s no more of it, and it’s hard to make. It takes months to make just a bit…We’re also looking at vaccines. And there are a couple of promising vaccines that are already in initial trials. And if those were available, we would be able to use them for healthcare workers and potentially in other places, if they work.” Read more
