7:05 pm
part as well as the presidents of peru ecuador and colombia the countries that have the largest number of venezuela and migrants we understand that up to $2000000000.00 is the aim and that they're getting pretty close to that now and they're going to need every single penny another large number of venezuelans are right here in chile thousands and thousands of them as in other countries have been left without jobs because of the pandemic with no place to live they can't pay for rent and there are in the case here many of them are now living in the tents that you see behind me on the street that leads to the venezuelan consulate and the reason why they have been sleeping out here in the cold for weeks and weeks is because they're trying to pressure the government of president nicolas maduro to help them get home. john kind of shows us where he's been camped for weeks with his wife in sydney in the little daughter outside of the colombian consulate in santiago along with dozens of other families they pass the time and
7:06 pm
the cold as best they can waiting for help from the government settlement that will break. this is precarious the way our politicians count on us for votes we need now to count on them to bring us home. but not far away peruvian migrants testart temperature before allowing us in to see their open air camp outside proves consulate they too want help to return home because the pandemic has less than jobless and destitute much of freedom it's freezing there are no bathrooms we sleep on cold cement but by far the largest number of foreigners who have lost their livelihoods other than his whalen's who make of chile's newest and largest migrant community. for 2 months hundreds of men women and children have been living like this outside of the consulate. in the pandemic started president nicolas maduro sent airplanes to repatriate those who wanted to leak but now the doors of the
7:07 pm
consulate are shut right now we have a. we have nothing left anymore we're living from charity and getting desperate and not to be from our government we are undocumented and we can't ask chile for help. the u.n. special representative for the news whaling migrants and refugees system of government is laying out conditions for people to return one is a quarantine period at the border and the other is more on longer lines of. more. of the investigation who east coming back. well. the true nations richard that you believe is going down be a number of people that they're allowing back in yes yes. every day more people arrive at the camp trying to find comfort in numbers around the corner the venezuelans are beginning to be tested now for coronavirus either way
7:08 pm
a group of them we understand will be placed in quarantine so that they will be ready if and when venezuela's government sends an airplane to get them but the real question is what will happen to them once they get older. they tell us they know that the economic insanity situation in venezuela is worse than in chile but to argue that if they have to die of coronavirus or hunger rather it be in their country of birth close to their families in not in a faraway strange land. and nick we have confirmed that some of those on his way lands that you've just seen have tested positive took over 19 including a 2 month old baby and i suppose it's not too surprising because the infection rate here in chile just goes up all the time yesterday it was the highest yet $5000.00 people which is even more than at the at the peak of the infections in spain for example so it is worrying worrisome but the death rate remains relatively low
7:09 pm
unlike in brazil which you mentioned earlier and brazil is seeing the deaths multiplied by the day all the way from rio de janeiro and sao paolo the most populated cities to the amazonia region so it is the hospitals are overflowing so as cemeteries and the only response so far really are the only initiatives so far from president jalal so narrow is to promote the use of hydroxide chlorine which is this anti-malaria drug which has not been tested in which yesterday the w.h.o. warrant should not be used at all because it can have very devastating even fatal side effects lucier thanks very much for the picture across much of a murderer. well the number of 1000 deaths in the united states is nearing 100000 states continue to reopen their economies the trump white house plans to buy 100000000 testing swabs and vials by the end of the it to distribute to the states and let's wait now to our white house correspondent kimberly how could he joins us
7:10 pm
now from washington d.c. and kimberly 100000 it's a grim milestone and not something the president would want to focus on. no and clearly that is something that he's trying not to focus on instead he has been criticized repeatedly for the fact that as the united states approaches that deaths of 100000 mark or that he spent the weekend playing golf and also spending a lot of time on twitter railing at some of his political foes he has attacked president obama a former democratic presidential nominee hillary clinton even the current presumptive nominee joe biden but what's really catching people's attention is his accusation that one of his political foes may have committed a felony at least that's what the u.s. president is insinuating against former republican congressman turned m.s. n.b.c. anchor joe scarborough now when joe scarborough was a congresswoman or rather congressman there was a woman
7:11 pm
a congressional staffer who died well working in his offices the police ruled this an accidental death but the u.s. president has intimated on twitter that this may be suspicious even suggesting that the so-called cold cases he's calling it should be reopened now the widower of this victim has written to twitter in an open letter requesting that the u.s. president be removed from this platform or at least his tweets be removed twitter so far saying that it will not do that but many people wondering why the u.s. president would be focusing so slowly on one particular death when he's presiding over soon to be the deaths of 100000 people under covert 19 nato arguably thanks very much it can be talk of the white house. now russia says it backs an immediate cease fire and talks to form a united governing body in libya that's after the u.s.

7:13 pm
a catastrophe talk is cheap but ultimately what would be what is what is the reality on the ground that they might withdraw their forces but then there are the military moves you had were still going to get come to have to one way or another director mueller through or through or through egypt also some of the other other source doesn't doesn't doesn't really matter a lot of talk but there is jewish and the round is going to be all out on the run between libyans and that's it what you will see the vision of libya is then with but then you would have another problem and the problem is the west is no good and out he's got to hold hold on to the oil and the oil is not in the in the center libya is in the east it's but it's by those that don't make you know going to give it up and so this war is going to end is going to continue for another look at the 20 is. still ahead herron al-jazeera why the latest strategy to fight crime has triggered a controversy in the u.s. city of baltimore. at

a limited number of traders are allowed back on the floor as you mentioned. first time in over 2 months since this stock exchange has closed it was closed the trading floor for the 1st time in its nearly 120 year history so it's highly significant even during 911 and world war 2 the stock exchange closed briefly but not to this extent so the fact that it is opening up is significant. someway but the trading floor had been going on in the trading and been going off the stock exchange electronically for many years now but this is a symbolic. message if you will that there are some traders back on the floor now finally again resuming the business of trading on the new york city new york stock exchange and it is obviously also important as the u.s. starts to reopen its economy again and get things going it's important that new york is for that because this is the engine that drives the u.s.
