J-IDEA – Professor Neil Ferguson on the current 2019-nCoV coronavirus outbreak – Feb 6, 2020 — Transcript

[Prof Neil Ferguson from “J-Idea” is interviewed (Feb 6, 2020) by Sabine van Elsland, on the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak in China. He claims that the real number of new infections per day is maybe up to 50,000, and could potentially double every 5 days, or so, depending on measures taken.

I put this interview out — as the guy appears genuine — since this coronavirus seems to be getting out of control and is therefore of public interest. But do your own research.

[Imperial College London]

 

Sabine van Elsland: Good afternoon. We are here today with Professor Neil Ferguson, director of J-IDEA, talking about the current corona virus outbreak. Welcome. Thank you for taking the time to speak with us. Would you be able to give us an update on the current estimates that you’re working on with your team?

 

Prof Ferguson: So the main things we’re working on currently are trying to get a better handle on really have lethal this virus is. What threat it poses to the human population. It’s a difficult thing to do in an epidemic, because just simply looking at how many people have died so far, this is how many cases there are, tells you very little. It takes quite a long time often for somebody being diagnosed as a case, to actually whether we know they’re going to live, or survive the infection. So we’re trying to correct for those factors.

 

In terms of looking at the overall scale of the epidemic, we’re getting kind of firmer estimates. What we can say is, surveillance ongoing in China, is, we’re probably picking up — if you think of all infections out there being a kind of pyramid, it picks up the top of the pyramid — the most severe infection.

 

We think probably 10%, or less of all infections in China are being detected at the current time. The next tier down is really what’s been detected overseas. With there, we think sensitivity is somewhat higher. But still, we may be only detecting maybe a quarter of all infections at that level. Lots of people will be entering, … Borders our porous, countries won’t be detecting every case coming in.

 

Sabine van Elsland: Right. Would you be able to say anything about forward projections of whether the outbreak, the current outbreak is going?

 

Prof Ferguson: Well in terms of where we think the current outbreak has got to in terms of scale, we estimate that maybe up to 50,000 new infections a day occurring in China. Just obviously much larger than the official case numbers. I mean, it’s going up all the time. So the forward projections depend really on the effectiveness of the control measures.

 

We think the epidemic is roughly doubling in size about every five days at the current time. It’s hard to evaluate how effective controls are, but there’s limited evidence of it slowing in China.

 

 

Under that scenario with the epidemic would really follow a natural course. Probably peak in its epicenter, Wuhan, in around a month’s time. Some uncertainty around that. And then maybe a month, or two later, in the whole of China.

 

The rest of the world will see epidemics at various times after that, depending on how well connected they are, have been, in the past few weeks. How many travelers have come to them who are infected from China itself. As to the overall effectiveness of control measures, it’s hard to evaluate. If there’s a lot of community transmission going on — and we think that probably is — it will be very hard to control this epidemic in the same way as, for instance, we controlled the SARS epidemic, 15, 20 years ago.

 

Sabine van Elsland: Would you be able to explain how the mathematical modeling that your team is doing can inform policy and government response?

 

Prof Ferguson: Yeah. So, statistical mathematical analysis of epidemic data has quite a long history. And it’s really been come quite established within the policy framework, policy making framework, used particularly in the UK, but further afield.

 

And that’s, because often what we have is very noisy and limited data early in an outbreak. And we want to be able to get the most information from that possible. So advanced, kind of statistical modeling, and then later, kind of mechanistic transmission modeling, can be useful in doing that.

 

So simple questions we try to answer is, you know:

 

How transmissible is a new pathogen? How long has it been circulating? How much? Cases are always underestimated in every epidemics and surveillance is never 100 percent perfect, so how large is the real epidemic?

 

And then critically important, how people respond is how severe a threat that is posed to human health.

 

Sabine van Elsland: Would you be able to explain a little bit about the uncertainty ranges around the estimates that you report?

 

Prof Ferguson: So, uncertainty is always high early in a epidemic. Particular in a disease we’ve never seen before. We don’t know things, critical things, like how long it takes from when somebody’s infected to when they develop symptoms. Something called incubation period. We don’t how transmissible the diseases is. So we try to estimate these things from quite limited data. And the limited data means that there’s always uncertainty in the estimates, which we try to characterize using state-of-the-art statistical methods.

 

So often we will quote something like:

 

We think every case generates 2.6 other cases on average — something called the reproduction number.

 

But there will be a range around that. It might vary from anywhere between, you know, 2.1, up to 3.3, or something, and that captures how much we know about that particular parameter of interest.

 

Sabine van Elsland: And then, with that uncertainty range, how useful is that to inform policies and governments?

 

Prof Ferguson: So, generally policy makers would like everything to be certain. So handling uncertainty is a challenge. I think the uncertainty range tells them what confidence we have in the estimate, if we have calculated it correctly.

 

So, if we for instance, say:

 

Well, the case fatality ratio, the proportion of people who might die in an outbreak varies, could be anywhere from, one in a thousand to one in ten.

 

That’s not a terribly informative estimate. If we can say precisely the estimate is, you know:

 

One percent case fatality, one percent of people will die. It could be half a percent, it could be two percent.

 

That’s a much more useful estimate.

 

Sabine van Elsland: And do you have any suggestions as to what the most efficient interventions would be at the moment for either China, or internationally?

 

Prof Ferguson: Unfortunately for this virus, we have limited options for interventions at the current time. We have no vaccine! Although vaccines are rapidly being developed. But it will take months, if not years to develop. And some testing of antiviral treatments, existing drugs, being repurposed to see if they work in infections in these cases.

 

The other measures we have to draw upon what are called “public health interventions”. So identifying as many cases as possible, as early as possible, in their disease and isolating them, is how we manage to control, for instance, the SARS outbreak. Genetically quite similar virus to this new virus.

 

Whether those measures will be as effective in this case remains to be seen. This virus has a much wider range of severity of symptoms! Quite a lot of people being infected may just have quite mild respiratory disease, might not even seek health care for it. If those people are transmitting, then it will be very hard to stop transmission overall.

 

So the next few weeks will really tell us about the likelihood of control measures working. So in terms of intervention. The Chinese have been throwing everything they can at this outbreak for the last, certainly, two weeks!

 

In terms of what might work, that critically depends on who is transmitting infection, and whether the people who are responsible for most onward transmission are being identified and isolated early enough.

 

The Chinese are currently focusing on identifying severe cases and isolating those. It’s unclear whether the mild cases left in the community — and we think that’s the majority of cases — are still sustaining the outbreak, or not.

 

We’ll know more in the next couple of weeks. At the moment we can’t see much evidence of the epidemic slowing down.

 

Sabine van Elsland: There have been few fatalities outside mainland China. Would you be able to explain why that is? Why we see that difference with the fatalities that we see in China?

 

Prof Ferguson: So looking at the severity of an epidemic, working out how many people might eventually die from it, is very challenging.

 

There were delays, quite often long delays! And when somebody is diagnosed with an infection, it may be reported in the media — for instance in Thailand, or Japan, or Hong Kong — and when we finally know what the outcome of that case is, people will, severe cases will be an intensive care maybe for weeks.

 

We think the delay from when somebody is develop symptoms to when they might die, is as long as 20 days, or longer, three weeks, or. So the fact we haven’t seen many deaths in travelers — we’ve seen two so far — cases detected outside mainland China, is not terribly reassuring! We wouldn’t have expected to see very many so far, because of those delays in the system. What we’re trying to do now is account for those delays, and do an accurate estimate of how lethal we think this virus is.

 

Sabine van Elsland: How worried are you about this kind of outbreak?

 

Prof Ferguson: I mean, the outbreak is clearly of concern. It’s probably the most major — we call it an “emerging infectious disease event”, the world has seen, since, at least since the pandemic influenza in 2009, and maybe since the SARS outbreak in 2003.

 

So we don’t fully know enough to be able to estimate the full scale of the “disease burden”, we call it, which will affect the human population. You know, how many people will die?

 

But it’s something that certainly governments need to prepare for urgently in terms of ramping up health system preparedness. And in particular, undertaking rapid research to try to develop treatments which can reduce potentially fatality in severe cases of disease.

 

Sabine van Elsland: How is the work that you do funded?

 

Prof Ferguson: So the funding for the work we do here, comes from a number of sources. We are very fortunate to have generous institute funding from Community Jameel, to fund our work. Not just on responding [10:02] to outbreaks, but much broader work on how the world responds to other forms of health crises. Climate change and the like.

 

We then receive a lot of research funding from individual research funders. And so within J-IDEA we have the MRC Centre for global infectious disease analysis, which has generous funding from the UK Medical Research Council. We receive a lot of funding from other funders as well.

 

Sabine van Elsland: All right. Thank you for taking the time to speak to us today.

 

Prof Ferguson: It was a pleasure.

This video is simply mind blowing. Why on earth are more people not circulating this video? It should be an hr long and not focused on ‘policy’ reform/adaption. Have you now absorbed the effect to the supply chain coming out of china? Are we all sleepwalking through this? If you need anything from Wal-Mart, best get it this week.. Some auto assembly plants in SE Asia are already shutting down but when will production resume? And what’s up with Wall Street? When will reality set in?

Yet, when I did the right thing and went to the hospital here in Australia as I had some symptoms and we were in Hong Kong and the Philippines until late Jan 2020, they told me I was a borderline case and I would not be tested…umm sorry WHAT?……And, apparently THAT advice came from our National Health Dept. Never mind, that I am a elementary teacher around students all day. If that is the government’s response then this is going to explode.

Get this med herb ‘andrographis paniculata’ helped during 1919 Spanish flu in Southern India. We have cured a dog with distemper last year, uncurable with similar symptoms to corona virus. My vet has cured many pups with deadly diseases.
A combination syrup/tablet is called Anvir get it.
All TN people use similar combination to fight of viruses, dengue and such. Really helps in early stages.
Just google the herb and study about it.

That’s disheartening to read. If you become much more ill and require assistive support I hope those in charge will provide it. This is precisely why China is hmmoraging right now. Lack of support or down right apathy. They are deliberately turning people away dooming them to their fate at home only to come and collect their corpse days later after they have expired. Makes me sick.

@Irshan Arjun the symptoms just take time to show, and a good number of people will have to be infected in order to have a chance of infecting and killing an older person. There has to be a cluster in order for it to be taken seriously. Like it was in the WUHAN seafood market. As well as that many cases go undetected in airports with thermometer checks as you can spread virus without having symptoms. And only considering people who have been to WUHAN or china as possible carriers of the virus is foolish as there have been person to person infections of people who have never been to china. Guy in australia who came in from Singapore is infected with coronavirus.

That means that that person who infected the person in Singapore is still infecting other people I Singapore. And that guy who was detected would have likely infected other people before he got detected. And those other undetected people are infecting other people. People can be infectious without showing symptoms for up to 14 days.

The Chinese people know their government is untrustworthy, too, which is going to make any sort of coordinated response that much more difficult. If the Wuhan police showed up at your door saying they were taking you to a quarantine camp but they’d totally let you go when you got better, would you believe them? Neither would the Chinese, and I can’t say I blame them.

A Taiwanese researcher found that East Asians were significantly more susceptible to SARS than were people of African, European, or aboriginal descent. This virus is similar to that one and it’s possible that genetics could act as a break until the weather warms up. By that time, a vaccine could be closer, and the trick would be to roll it out before next winter. I know that’s a lot of ifs, but I don’t think there is reason to freak out quite yet.
I live in Asia, and I don’t wear a mask. People are hoarding them. The government is rationing them, but I still can’t find any. I would like a few just in case I get sick. But they shouldn’t be used to protect yourself, in my opinion. They should really be reserved for people who are sick or very vulnerable.

I don’t believe so. For starters, we Westerners believe in bacteria and viruses (most Chinese don’t), we believe in proper personal hygiene and food hygiene (most Chinese don’t), and if something goes wrong, our governments don’t lie to our face that everything is fine while people drop dead all over the place (like the CCP does). If there are larger outbreaks of nCoV-2019 in Europe somewhere, you can be damn well sure that our governments will tell us straight away and will drill precautions into our heads 24-7 on TV and radio. Besides, most of the face masks the Chinese are using are useless for this virus. You need the special kind of mask that can filter aerosolized virus particles out of the air, and your run-of-the-mill DUST MASK, which only filter DUST particles (like you use when sanding wood) is absolutely USELESS. It’s been proven that the normal cheap dust masks DON’T protect you from this virus. Those will get you infected even faster, because you THINK you are protected and therefor walk into infectious situations much more readily because you THINK you are protected. You are not. I’m not trying to tell you off, spoofer20. If you feel safer when you can wear a mask, that is totally fine. Just make sure you use ones that are actually rated for your intended use and can filter the aerosolized virus out of the air, and that you don’t re-use them. Please stay safe.

What most Westerners don’t understand is that if an Asian is wearing a medical mask it is normally because they are sick & don’t want you to get sick. They are normally wearing them out of respect for others health, even if people very rarely cover their mouth when coughing or sneezing.

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” -Schopenhauer
In the beginning people will think you’re irrational for wearing a mask. Then when the inflection point occurs the same people will chastise those who aren’t wearing a mask, entirely forgetting their earlier viewpoint, or admitting they were wrong.

In other diseases, like seasonal flu, they’re given a special dispensation by governments to be immune to lawsuits. Look it up. You can’t sue for damages caused by seasonal flu vaccine. Do you really think they’re going to test Coronavirus vaccine more extensively than the flu vaccine when it literally goes viral on the North American continent. Of course not. I estimate we’ll “have a vaccine” by June. A completely untested vaccine, that everyone will be forced to take. Wait and see.

As I’ve been saying, because we don’t know what we’re really dealing with yet, it’s better to overreact than underreact. But all I’m getting from the WHO and others is severe underreaction.

On the other hand, its totally and completely impossible that its just another strain of a virus that jumped into humans because we simply are sharing more space with animals due to the increase of population. just like it happened ALL THE TIME during human history. this is totally not possible, of course.
Plus, the governments are so dumb, that they release a virus that cannot be controlled, that poses unknown high risk, that no one heckin’ know how to stop. they are so stupid, that the whole world is stalled, the economies are gonna go to a recession, but you guys figured it all out sitting on your sofa ))))

I really hope his model is wrong. It doesn’t look like it though so professor Ferguson is probably correct in saying that there are 50,000 new cases of the Novel Coronavirus per day. It’s likely to be in our country already as we have close business relationship ties with China such as the jiyenge steel company from Hubei province who’s currently holding talks with British Steel in Scunthorpe, or the 5G business talks that are ongoing in the capital. The worrying factor is that a person can be carrying the virus for upto 14 days without feeling any symptoms so they will likely spread it to other people as they carry on their normal day to day activities. I don’t think we will know if it has spread locally until at least the the 20th of February. Back tracing will be very hard because people will be carrying on with their normal activities and will be in contact with all sorts of different people before they present themselves to the health services.

He’s got visions of bodies stacked to the ceiling whilst her nipples are getting hard and she’s looking like she wants to ride him. Pretty effing awkward. I hate that sh@t.

50.000 per day would mean that it take 75 years to infect the entire population of China. But by then they will have a vaccine. Maybe even in the summer.

50,000 per day now. But the spread is exponential, not linear. Each person infects an average of 4 others.

The prolem is 2+million left Wuhan for Shanghai, Guangdong, Beijing and all sorts of places by plane. That is what is worrying. 2+million disease vectors. Those cities will spike next week. Then the true extent will become known. It is possible that, just as in Wuhan, the other cities will be quickly overwhelmed. It is mayhem right now and China is lying through its teeth.

@Mike Harrison Really? Then in few days the entire world population would be infected. That can’t be right.

@AvariceUntied it would take between 12-15 weeks if it is not slowing down to infect the entire world

Look at the cute guy here! He thinks he’s so smart! Hundreds of thousands of people die from one flu or another all over the world each year. “JuST a fLu” he says. If someone shoots you in the dick with a gun, will you walk it off and say “iTs JuST a TIny LiTLle BuLLEt” or will you agree that it’s a gun shot wound and a life-threatening injury? Just a flu. You should carry a potted plant around with you to replace the oxygen you waste, you fucking shit-for-brains. Your mother should have shoved you back inside for a couple more weeks, because your brain was clearly not done baking.

It’s a real threat. Then the vaccine will be the next threat. They know they need a real threat big enough to scare people into taking the vaccine. It’s here guys. This is it.

Posture of interviewer is horrendous. Is she 500 lbs? Obviously not, she’s fit, pretty, but sits like someone who is detrimentally obese.
