5:39 pm
remind people we're going to have a test of our emergency notification system today as suggested by the mayor this system you remembered it is called rob both coolers we don't have individuals calling the 37 thousand city employees but we have the system it reaches out to the contacts people saw the life feed it's not life one weekly people who quite maybe no evidence but if they left a while ago probably won't be no evidence (laughter) what will happen depending on the information it will contact a work phone number or an employee addresses i had it tested on myself the first time it gets a response it asks for a
5:40 pm

5:43 pm
sarah's one of the challenges we had as a global community is as in the world we're becoming increasing complex we're going to continue to have those types of events it's easy because we're very interconnected as a globe that someone in the different part of the globe can come to the united states and bring an infectious disease i'm mentioning sarah's because it is why e bottle is different and the risk is a lot lower when we had sarah's in 2003 it was spread like the common cold the offeral mortal rates was 11 percent and over 50 was 50 percent spread like the common cold no vaccine and no cure we
5:44 pm
were scared sarah's happened in 4 months fortunate because of practices we were able to contain it e bottle is a different agent it's scarier the mortality rates is 50 percent fortunately it spread only by blood or body excludes not spread like the common cold you have to have closed contact so we don't expect it to spread around the world like sarah's. someone doesn't become infectious unless they're very, very sick so the only people that are coming into contact are the close contacted or health care workers so we're prep the health care community if someone flies back during the incubation
5:45 pm
period. the third thing to realize i've mentioned because of the mortality rate is high it's one the eir i didn't see of the infectious the mortality rate is high people are very sick or people that are passed away are not transmitting the disease people can be transmitting to another person that's why the pandemic influenza is scarey you have a lot of people with mild symptoms are scary we're not going to have an outbreak in united states the worse is in west africa where the endesk is courage 15 hundred cases i some deaths they're anticipating
5:46 pm
maybe up to 20 people may actually die before the epidemic is over so for that part of the world it's a huge tragedy and big impact because of their health care structure was poor to begin with our message we're getting out to everybody be calm we're engaged with the health care community we don't anticipate problems we have health care workers from the united states including in the bay area who are traveling to african to provide medical care when they come back we'll make sure they don't have symptoms it's pretty much covers everything >> thank you dr. eric it's reassuring. france who is our public transportation officer from emergency management is going to
