Sunday Talks: FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn Discusses Latest COVID-19 Mitigation Efforts…

Coronavirus task force member and FDA Commissioner, Stephen Hahn, appears on Fox News to discuss the latest U.S. effort to mitigate the threat of COVID-19.

Maria Bartiromo asks a great question about what the U.S. can do to reduce our national dependency on China for the manufacturing of critical healthcare products and medicines.  Dr Hahn explains the FDA role in that process and what intervention is possible by the U.S. government to mitigate that dependency.

.

One of the positive outcomes from this larger conversation is increased public pressure on government officials to support what President Donald Trump has been saying for years about bringing back critical manufacturing to the U.S.  Long before he was a politician President Trump was very public in saying this should be our number-one priority.

Donald Trump is exactly the right president for this moment in time.

    Welp, we have our answer why they couldn’t roll out hydroxychloroquine as a treatment..the health care industry needed to hoard it for themselves!!! FTA:

    “Then pharmacies received a flurry of calls from doctors, including dentists, plastic surgeons and veterinarians, requesting prescriptions for themselves, their staff and families, according to pharmacists and state officials…”

      Ish, his answer to the question of “who gave approval” seemed to be that the companies don’t need approval to manufacture an FDA approved drug outside the US. At least that’s what I thought I heard him say.

      He is the wrong guy to answer any questions about manufacturing and technology being shipped off shore.

      The Secretary’s of State and President’s from the Clinton-Bush II and Obama administrations are the one who have to answer it because they approved all the trade deals and export licenses that allowed this to happen. Bush II and Obama actually financed allot of it in 2008-09 during the fake bailout. With respect to trade deals, taxes and regulations, many of the Democrats and Republicans currently in the House and Senate presided over the approval of the deals and regulations the President has been unwinding.

      The Presidents named need to be called into account for all the job killing legislation and regulations they allowed and not fighting back against nations putting massive tariffs on US Good to further accelerate the off-shore migration.

        Puerto Rico started to lose its favorite tax status in 1994, the year before the R’s took over the house in January 1995. From what country did Al Gore pick up a stash of cash from a temple? Under what President did China get super computers and ICBM missile technology in the 1990s?

        As a global healthcare person, it’s been amazing to watch the Chinese medical device industry grow for the past 2 decades. It started out as copying much older instruments that worked well in past. The socialized medicine communities around the world thought that these low cost products were the panacea for product supply, never understanding that they were putting their local manufacturers out of business, even with tariffs.

        Bringing back manufacturing to the US is critical for our national well being. Bringing back manufacturing to individual countries will help them as well. Healthy trade makes for peaceful neighbors.

        Dr. Hahn is an oncologist. Immediately prior to taking the job at the FDA a few months ago, he was Chief Medical Officer at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. If you want to find a huge center for clinical trials, Anderson would be one of the main locations.

        It would be difficult to imagine a person better suited for the job than a person with Dr. Hahn’s CV. I want an MD who has been face-to-face with patients and whose experience in clinical trials focused on something more than finding treatments for ED or thinning hair or toenail fungus

      I thought he answered it pretty clearly:
      The FDA does NOT have the authority to tell drug companies where they can manufacture their products.

      It would be,…CONgress, that would have to pass LEGISLATION, Giving the FDA such authority.

      Bear in mind, there could and HAVE BEEN situations in which medication manufacturering plants, located within the U.S. have had to shut down production for a period of time.

      For instance, when FDA inspections discovered a problem. THIS, specifically is why Federal law,’allows’citisens to import up to 3 months of Rx medication from foreign pharmacies, excepting “controlled” substances such as vicoden.

      Because they KNEW there would be times when U.S. production would experience supply chain disruption of some sort.

      THATS,why he is talking about insuring there are multiple or diverse sources of supply.

      India is our friend, here. They have a massive pharmacuetical industry, and in fact virtually ALL the HIV medications being Rx’d to patients in the U.S. are made in India.

      Currently around 70 different meds, IIRC.

      Yes, the FDA needs work. And they have needed it for a long time.
      Let me describe, for example, what happens to imports of food. Let us say Chinese foodstuffs, because they have a lot of problems.
      A 40’ container arrives packed with lotus root. The FDA samples it, and Customs gives the shipment a “conditional release”, which means the importer can pick up their product, but cannot sell it until the FDA test results are complete and indicate the product is within compliance. But…the importer does not wait, and sells the product, and it is consumed.

      Now the FDA determines that the product was unfit for human consumption, and notifies the importer to redeliver the product to a bonded warehouse fir destruction or export. The importer admits they sokd it, or they try to substitute some other product and get caught. Customs issues a liquidated damages penalty, which after sone wrangling, is mitigated to a small amount. The importer pays the small penalty as a cost of doing business.
      What could go wrong?

    South Korea example.

    Appears that the critical issue is that they were able to test EVERYBODY very early on, quarantining only the positives and not the entire frikking country.

    And that speaks to our inability to test early on.

    Those who tested negative for the virus went back to school and work. Those who tested positive for the virus with little or mild symptoms were quarantined.

    The other very important practice they did was to quarantine the elderly to stay at home to keep them from getting it in the first place. This, too, prevented hospitals from being flooded with such cases …

    This graph illustrates their “curve” and also visually puts number of deaths in perspective (the thin red bars)

      • nimrodman says:

        No – I re-read the article and didn’t find a statement that they tested 100% of the population of 52 million.

        But I’m not sure that’s entirely necessary.

        However there IS a statement that implies they focused efforts at airports.

        Had we focused on airport arrivals and borne down hard on that infection pathway we’d be way, way better off. Had we focused more effort on travelers ARRIVING in the US, we’d have had a chance to prevent much of the SEEDING of the virus all across the US.

        Recall that in Feb we had news accounts of Chinese **STILL** arriving in the US despite PresTrump having “shut down” flights “from China” on Jan 30.

        Despite the “shutdown” news footage showed Chinese still arriving via 2- and 3-hop indirect flights from intermediate airports.

        And in Feb and as late as March, as PresTrump shut down flights from Italy, there was news footage of passengers arriving and not being “screened”, not even for temperature, with throngs crowed in customs queues shoulder to shoulder and then simply released with a pamphlet advising them to self-quarantine for 14 days. And blind-trusting that they would.

        Again, had the US focused whatever testing capability we DID have at airports and in truly shutting down travel from foreign countries, we’d be way better off.

        From the article:

        So how is it that the South Koreans got a handle on this virus without stopping the economy or shutting down the country? South Korea has a crowded population of some 52 million people crammed into a geographical location about the size of Indiana, a perfect situation for a pandemic to spread – but it didn’t. And yes, when I flew in and out of Korea, it was also very apparent they took communicable diseases seriously, particularly at airports. Health is a very much part of their daily routine.

        My contact friend went on to point out, “Yes, I feel very blessed to be living here in South Korea during this time. There are several factors, I think, that have made South Korea so successful in how they’ve handled it. They started screening for fevers, wearing masks, putting out hand sanitizer everywhere, and just trying to make the public aware of what was happening. They were also very proactive, in testing and separating anyone who tested positive for the virus, whether they were showing symptoms or not. Because as you are correct, the majority of the cases are quite mild. It’s just very contagious. So South Korea ended up turning some factory warehouses and training areas into large quarantine centers for anyone who had mild symptoms or no symptoms, but still tested positive for the virus. That saved our hospitals only for the small percentage that were actually seriously sick.”

          Regarding zinc, I’d bet money that prescribing doctors are well aware of that.

          They get medical bulletins that include that information, my anesthetist brother clued me in to that a month or more ago and cautioned to also supplement with copper if one is supplementing zinc (a proper balance between the two is necessary for good health).

          What’s more serious – as Mo’s posted tweets make clear – is that administrators are throwing up roadblocks to prevent prescribing physicians from getting orders filled for their patients.

          That is: administrators are thwarting the ready availability of chloroquine / hydroxychloroquine, in contravention of the nation’s and the President’s interests in getting immediate treatment in place for this virus.

          To the extent that choroquine / hydroxychloroquine treatment is – in a sense – a valid element of PresTrump’s “agenda”, administrators are thwarting the President’s agenda and the health and economic interests of the nation.

          It’s bad enough that Dr Fauci has to be dragged kicking and screaming to admit its efficacy for coronavirus, but that additionally there is an army of resistors out there in the medical administration community that are also bound and determined to thwart the President’s initiatives on behalf of the country.

    SD, I totally agree that bringing our manufacturing base home will be one of the good outcomes from this mess. Ten or twenty years ago, corporate boards and c-suite execs would be criticized for not moving manufacturing and supply chains to China et. al. to reduce costs and boost profits. Now, things have changed so that those same decision makers will be criticized for having too much dependency on offshore manufacturing. While labor is cheap, we now understand that there can be great costs associated with manufacturing overseas. Reorienting our manufacturing base back to the USA is a good thing, especially for “critical” industries such as pharmaceuticals,
    defense components and technology.

    One thing that is predictable about the left is that once they put a scheme in place to try and take out their opposition, they can’t help themselves but to rush to the end game that they’re attempting to acheive. So it appears the end game this time around is to create no win situation for Republicans.

    Either A: the Republican Governors and PDJT didn’t act quickly enough and killed innocent people (false on all accounts), B: they reopened the economy too quickly and thereby killed more people, or C: Donald Trump caused the 2nd Great Depression. The first two accusations can be refuted, but if we do go into a depression, that can’t be refuted.

    The best course of action just on a political basis is to open back the economy as soon as possible. Tens of millions of Americans will appreciate it and not look kindly upon the demonrats who want to continue their economic misery.

        David, a shepard boy, had NO CHANCE against Goliath, a literal GIANT, battle hardened warrior.

        Does anyone really need a reminder of who won?

        DJT stood NO chance, with -0- experience in Politics, against the vaunted Clinton machine, the Bush Dynasty, the RNC, the DNC, the Media, the CoC, the combined global elistits cabal aligned with CHINA.

        NO CHANCE,to win the election, and even if he did they had an “Insurance policy”, GUARANTEED to take him out.

        The,FIX was in, a DONE DEAL, cause Senate Republicons were IN on it.

        Hmmm,…I sleep quite soundly at night.

    Dr Hahn ~”We want to remove redundancy.”
    Something that repeats something else and is therefore unnecessary.

    Manufacture all of our critical drugs in the USA, Zero Redundancy period end stop.

    Will you “Knowingly” let someone inject a “vaccine” made in China into you or your children?

      I disagree completely.

      We absolutely DO want redundancy with critical items such as pharmaceuticals.
      Redundancy does NOT necessarily mean mfr in two or more countries. It can mean mfr in two or more locations in the U.S.

      But in order to be truly secure, this concept has to apply to the entire process – from obtaining the raw materials / ingredients for the pharmaceuticals through mfg. to the final product that is ready for consumption.

    In his presser yesterday, POTUS said they have 29M doses of HDQ. If there are 1.3M cases of covid 19, then they could take the HDQ doses 22 times. The Dr.In Queens recommends HDQ, Z-Pac and 220 mg Zinc sulfate. He says its the zinc that is stopping the virus replication and the HDQ opens a pathway for more zinc to enter the cell. Almost no one mentions zinc.

    I believe these politicians want higher death rates on purpose.. With this drug regimen or country can open back up. I’ve gone from frustrated to enraged in the past few days.

    If the US only has 29M pills as opposed to doses, and you need 14 for a regimen, then you only have enough for 2M people in the US. Make more pills. That was not made clear yesterday.

      I want to plagiarize your words with one small addition:
      “I believe these DEEP STATE politicians want higher death rates on purpose..”
      Thank-you and MAGA.

    FDA Commissioner, Stephen Hahn, seems well placed within The President’s Administration. Each time I hear him speek the more confident, in him, I become. He seems in his element.
    The FDA appears to be in capable hands.

    Great interview!

    Thank You, SD!!

      Judge Jeanine explains how uranium is used in the fight against cancer. That is why the sale of our uranium to Russia is and will always be very personal to her. She feels she is alive because of it. And The Kenyan and the ILLary gave it away, for a fee, payable to themselves.

      God only knows what else they gave away…

        “As President, I hereby declare uranium to be a Strategic National Resource and am nationalizing the Uranium One holdings, which immediately become property of the U.S. Government

        “Those having purchased mineral rights to those properties may contact The Clinton Foundation for a refund or other compensation or arrangement”
