12:07 pm
so in 2 weeks when the mean the violence reach this kind that you know is so much spread there's nothing you can do i mean everything is fake is infected we can't even i mean speak by form because even for one side infected even phones have the vital sierra so you can you know you have to. you have to keep the phone to distant eats is beyond imagination i mean from outside you come to an age and i mean from northern israel you can't imagine you can do anything i mean we are we have disinfecting of course our hence every every 10 minutes but then you know you have to catch. this effect on bottle and we have no idea no one has any clue for our long i mean the virus stays alive on a few faces. saw for example today this morning have everybody i mean is
12:08 pm
talking about these new results coming from china and it seems that the virus can i mean resist in the air for a for a few hours and this would be i mean this would be frightening because it least that we should see. when we are out. and of course you know we are waiting mask and we are keeping the social distance so one meter but what about there's a lot of speculation about how. how this is pastor nobody knows who sure exactly how how this is transmitted if authorities are the downplaying the number of cases in a given the list of the dead behind you a 16 or so from yesterday what is the what is the picture what is the picture behind in the hospitals and so forth not look at is not something intentionally hinkley impossible to count them because everybody here is sick of it by the seal of east dormer and when you stay i mean inside your home it means that you are
12:09 pm
outside of statistics so it's not is nothing intentional when you know you reach the spot and you can't count the infected anymore. and the hospital semi and of course you know i hope to get into the local hospital quite soon a. doctor said all infected and the best he can lead they described the hospital as a kind of large that it where you know you have patients in the corridor send patients everywhere and and actually in these local hospitals i'm speaking of alcohol or. not only the war i mean the patients in worse conditions at the center do sleep no hoper which is the opposite you know of what they are doing you not at all speak out you know that hospitals they had up meeting only do sing but that conditions because he had a bicycle you are going to die because all doctors are infected so all deuce who
12:10 pm

12:11 pm
days to build a state media is reporting he met with medical staff and those hospital employees have been on the frontline of this epidemic since day one they're also suggesting he met with patients now as i mentioned we're racing still shots at this time we're yet to confirm if those meetings were face to face video calls but the message that he's conveying to those staff as a people on the front line is to stay strong that china can fight this epidemic but there has been a lot of criticism of she didn't pay on the fact that it this is his 1st visit there instead he's been leaving the political focus of the epidemic to his premier league chang and he made a visit to woo han back in january and so it looks like she jumping his charge to disassociate himself with this health crisis and that as you mentioned the timing of his visit has come with the a downward trend of the number of infections and deaths not just in who by province but also nationwide and state media is also reporting that the quarantine centers
12:12 pm
these are the centers set up and will have to test or treat those people who are showing symptoms of the crown of ice they're reportedly all being shut down as a result so the good news tone siding with she depends visits to hand on tuesday and so given the board is the general sense across the region about this is the fact that it appears to be a downward trend now. well and this downward trend is also coinciding with the announcement that potentially this lockdown this mandatory lockdown across a few by province will be partially lifted the government is looking to roll out a mobile monitoring system by fines up using a q.r. code for those residents allowing them some freedom if they classified or categorize in the green or the green category and that's considered a low risk area so people will be given a green a yellow or red a color if you're green you may resume some travel within the area if you're given the yellow means that you've actually been associated or i had some association
12:13 pm
with people who have had the crown of ours and if you're given the red it means that you have got the credit of credit and fiction and you can't travel so certainly the risk areas they may be granted some freedoms after being locked down for some time we can also confirm that based on his partial lifting of the lockdown that a couple of airlines have also announced that they will resume flights to have this includes china eastern airlines and china southern airlines they've started selling tickets to and from work on lifting this particular lockdown and singapore airlines this scoot wing of their aircraft that were also resume cargo flights to what has certainly the partial lifting of this lockdown is good news for those residents who by province or sir thanks very much thanks for that update sarah clarke in hong kong. u.s. president all trump is expected to announce steps aimed at reducing the impact of coronavirus on the economy or monday trump said he will discuss the poor old twix count with congressional republicans this comes as global stock markets plunged

12:18 pm
a public holiday in most of the country for the hindu festival holi a bit many of choosing to stay at home following government warnings to avoid big crowds india has confirmed 47 cases so far as india correspondent elizabeth in new delhi. at the festival of color that heralds the end of winter in the stock spring and which signifies the mythic victory of good over evil it's also one of india's most popular festivals and even though some people are celebrating mostly in their own homes the streets are empty promises that in the morning he said he wanted to be celebrating holi the c.i. given the advice of health experts to avoid public gatherings there are now 47 cases of coronavirus in the country from and the administered kashmir in the north to carola in the south the government has started screaming all airline passengers coming from all the seas and some major airports the screen of domestic passengers
12:19 pm
to the indian air force has evacuated 58 people from iraq here in delhi all primary schools are shut until the end of the month and that's also the case and administered kashmir so while some people are celebrating holy this year it will be the empty streets are a small victory for a government that's trying to contain the spread of coronavirus in a country with 1300000000 people. south african court ruling has backed the president's your room in a showdown with the county corruption chief of the judge ruled the report accusing him of misleading parliament about election funds is frankly flawed let's go straight away to the media miller who's live outside the court in pretoria for me to tell us more about what the court has found. well the allegations around the president. stem from a reporter that the public protector wrote last year that goes back to elections
12:20 pm
and campaign funding specifically his campaign to be the president of the a.n.c. and in that report the public protector had said that the president had mislaid misled south africans when he discussed the campaign contributions that he had violated his executive the executive code of ethics and now the court has found and essentially has torn apart to that support by the public protector essentially rubbishing everything that she's alleged the court to say that the public protector didn't actually lay down how so roma porson had misled parliament there was no evidence that the president knew about a particular donation that had been made to his campaign this is very much what that report centered around and essentially sam slammed the public protectors finding that the president had lied to parliament over that payment and i think one
12:21 pm
of the key judgments made in the court today was that the public protector did not act with an open mind when investigating the president so what are the implications of this especially for the public perception. well for the time being we do expect to that the public protector is likely to appeal this ruling but obviously it leaves the president in a better position in terms of the criticism he was facing now that a court has found in his favor on the other hand the public protector the spotlight is now on her and the office this is a public protector was faced a lot of criticism around some of the reports she's written her office is tossed with dealing with corruption but it's also been criticized for acting along party lines being biased and having a specific agenda and it's likely that she will now face more criticism this isn't
12:22 pm
the 1st time a court has found that her reports of a road years and that have shut down that billick to stand on so it's likely that the public protect is going to face a tougher battle trying to keep her job especially as parliament is looking at a process to potentially remove her from that office or for me to really be there for timing thanks very much indeed for me to reporting. the united states has announced it has begun withdrawing its troops from afghanistan as part of a deal with the taliban supposed to pave the way to peace the u.s. has agreed to reduce its forces from 120028600 within $135.00 days of signing the agreement on february 29th the long term plan is for the u.s. to remove all american and nato troops within 14 months of security conditions are met him it has more now from kabul and she says the terms of the agreement have been respected from both sides so far. there are ongoing war between. the afghan government. going on on
12:23 pm
a daily basis with. multiple attacks on afghan security forces when it comes to respecting the terms of the agreements between the u.s. and the taliban and that has been respected. and i think the u.s. . goodwill gesture because there has been a lot of talk. government saying it will not release the taliban prisoners now says it will release them in a taliban saying that it will not go. into afghan talks if the. 2 things happening one the beginning of the pullout of foreign troops and the release of the prisoners president has been saying ever since it was signed that he will he did he hadn't agreed he hadn't signed to release any of these up to 5000 prisoners as guaranteed by the agreement well yes yesterday during his
