Have the students heard of a "challenge" trial, and if so have they considered the ethics of such an experiment?
Jonas Rosenthal
19:31
the total number of cases, 1 million in the united states, is the most striking to me
Dr. Patricia Thomas
20:02
the low number of tests in the US
Josh Leffler
20:18
Definitely the testing statistic - the other numbers are scientifically explainable, but the testing is just a failure of government
Carlos Hernandez
20:25
14 day incubation period. Anxiety gets to people and it just hinders people
archerbiggs
20:37
I am struck that since the U.S. population is 300m and there are 1m cases and ~50k deaths that seems like kind of a low number of cases/deaths in order to shut down the entire country.
Nora Estrada
20:38
the number of days since the first stay at home order is most striking to me
Nic Tumaneng
20:55
Number of deaths in U.S. ~6% death rate (of all U.S. cases)
Ramsay Bader
20:57
Lack of available testing
Carly McAdam
21:19
lack of testing
Declan
21:49
the total number of deaths—when thinking about the horror of each one of those experiences on the person involved and their family members, the scale of all this is just absolutely insane.
Pranav Pulakkat
22:16
1/1 infection rate in combination with the 46 days since stay at home - want to know how long the stabilization period compares to other countries
Wayne Millan
23:03
though is testing necessarily a good thing at this point?
Dr. Patricia Thomas
24:34
That’s quite the model!
Ramsay Bader
33:12
The United States accounts for 60% of Global pharmaceutical Research and Development
Declan
34:32
How much can we do without the profit incentive though?
Wayne Millan
36:43
We can do a lot as long as the researchers' costs are covered. Edward Jenner was awarded the equivalent of about $2 million by the British Parliament for his work. This was specifically because he did NOT work at his private practice as he was developing his smallpox vaccine.
Nora Estrada
38:32
i would just like to point out that jonas salk never patented his polio vaccine
Dr. Patricia Thomas
39:16
Interesting
Ramsay Bader
44:37
Should we lower our requirements for a vaccine in the case of a crisis? Is it worth it to take that 1/1,000,000 chance?
Nora Estrada
45:41
^ same goes for whole cell vaccines vs acellular ones– what are your thoughts on forgoing some regulations in order to create a more universally effective vaccine?
Nora Estrada
46:23
(in general, not just for covid-19)
Noah Bopp
49:01
I have been here for 10 seconds and it is already the best SEGL TV segment of all time.
Pranav Pulakkat
49:53
Alvin, what's your source for this? That seems like a lowball...
Pranav Pulakkat
50:47
Are you just counting the current wave? Or are you forecasting into the future?
Noah Bopp
51:36
This is epic.
Manavi Sinha

PubMed is generally reliable. It's the NIH website that began long ago as the "Index Medicus." People all over the world use this site and its data.
Pranav Pulakkat
54:12
Alvin, are you drawing a line between infections and exposure?
Pranav Pulakkat
54:21
With the 5% rate
Wayne Millan
54:22
none of the above?
Nora Estrada
56:28
alvin, how could you trick us like this?
Jonas Rosenthal
56:40
i fell betrayed
Becca Segal
56:58
that isn't how a trick question works!

Quotation from Alvin Fridie: “Teachers lie all the time.”
Noah Bopp
57:56
I thought the answer was pickling #JonasNora
Ramsay Bader
58:11
Alvin's most used verbs: "Talking" and "Harassing"
Nora Estrada
58:19
the answer is ALWAYS pickling
Noah Bopp
58:41
Wayne, what is the Latin word for “pickling”?
Jonas Rosenthal
58:46
quarantine is perfect for pickling

two distinct issues: how they isolated people, and how they did or did not report numbers
Mia Felt

Radio Free Asia: JIANGXI, HUBEI–“Angry Residents Overturn Police Van During Bridge Clash” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bn8SkrNi8ZY&feature=emb_title
Wayne Millan
01:09:04
Alvin, I can speak a bit on that issues of whether to put everybody into isolation or not.
Mia Felt
01:09:22
#2 Getting lead out of paint. That’s the one I cite to my colleagues.
Nora Estrada
01:10:20
wait, you think lead regulations are a bad thing?
Pranav Pulakkat
01:11:11
As invasive as the practices of South Korea and China are, all the models I've seen show that contact tracing is way, way more efficient
Pranav Pulakkat
01:11:35
To the point where it almost kills pandemics immediately
Becca Segal
01:11:37
is having to pay for parking a violation of individual freedoms?
Nora Estrada
01:13:14
pericles!
Mia Felt
01:13:30
My supervisor is named Pericles...
Mia Felt
01:15:34
*Haha no, lead regulation is a form of government restriction that I consider positive, and impossible without the lead of a government agency! The government is excellent at eliminating the corporate prisoner’s dilemma, and that’s what I bring up when my coworkers get ahead of themselves. Alvin wasn’t going exactly where I thought he was going, so this comment wasn’t as relevant as I thought…
Nora Estrada
01:16:14
mia i agree with that
Noah Bopp
01:17:12
Guys, my wife Sydney was quoted in the NYT today: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/30/climate/clean-energy-loans-coronavirus-trump.html
Manavi Sinha
01:17:22
very nice
Ramsay Bader
01:17:38
To quote you Noah: "This is epic."
Noah Bopp
01:18:09
So sorry we can’t clone Alvin for South Africa…

Carlos Hernandez

What are the different ways Covid will affect those of lower Socio-Economic status? What can we expect life to look like after all of this?
Josh Leffler
01:22:19
The proposal by Apple/Google to do contact tracing through smartphones
Nora Estrada
01:23:07
what should be prioritized– immediate steps to mitigate the crisis, or larger, slower-moving steps towards real reform?
Noah Bopp
01:23:21
Manavi, who did that stained glass transom window behind you?
Noah Bopp

Nora Estrada

are there people here for whom you don’t have warm and fuzzy feelings, alvin?
Declan
01:26:03
“most”
Noah Bopp
01:26:12
I’m the only one Alvin puts up with.

Pranav Pulakkat

That sounds awesome
Mia Felt

I mean, if you choose to host a criminal justice/mass incarceration discussion… I wrote like two op-eds and a research brief.
