10:06 pm
and they're living on the street in many cases we're talking about peruvian colombia but especially the venezuelans who are the lot make up the largest number of migrants in chile and some of them are living in tents that you see directly behind me on both sides of the street which leads to the consulate to the venezuelan consulate and these people are of are waving here hoping that they can pressure their government to send an airplane to bring them home despite the fact that they know that the situation back in venezuela will be as difficult or more than the one that they are suffering here. 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 the cold as best they can waiting for help from their government said i mean. this is precarious the way our politicians count on us for votes we
10:07 pm
need now to count on them to bring us home. not far away peruvian migrants testart temperature before allowing us in to see their open air camp outside prue's consulate they too want help to return home because the pandemic has less than jobless and destitute which is pretty and it's freezing there are no bathrooms for me sleep on cold cement but by far the largest number of foreigners who've 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. when the pandemic started president nicolas maduro sent airplanes to repatriate those who wanted to leak but now the doors of the consulate are shocked 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're on documented and we can't ask chile for help
10:08 pm
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 of a long the lines of. more. of the investigation of who is coming back. and what would be the true motivations for that richard that you believe is slowing down the 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 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 oh. they tell us they know that
10:09 pm
the economic insanity situation in venezuela is worse than in chile but to argue that if they have to die of coronavirus or hunger they'd rather it be in their country of birth close to their families and not in a faraway strange land on the sea i mean while the world health organization has raised the alarm on certain countries in latin america saying that the current a virus is accelerating their. it is excel orating just about everywhere doraine without exception except some much much more so than in others and in much larger numbers the most worrisome of course is the case of brazil the largest country the most populated country in south america but it's also the country where there is no common policy to tackle the situation and other words we have the president on the one hand shining the idea of social distancing and quarantines wanting people to go back to work and he is in conflict with the governors and the mayors who are trying to keep people at home and the and the
10:10 pm
people are in the meanwhile are stuck right in the middle and the number of infections and the death rate is soaring yet we've seen hospitals that can no longer cope cemeteries that no longer have any more room and this is all the way across the board from the east coast rio de janeiro sao paolo all the way to the amazon states so a very very difficult situation indeed and then you have ecuador which has the highest death rate of all the countries in latin america per capita and now we're seeing that the affections of gone from why a key which is the economic center of the country to go to to keep to the capital where people are protesting they don't want to stay inside but again the infection rate is soaring and chile where i am right now the same thing is happening we had 50000 in 5000 i'm sorry infections the highest number yet yesterday and today a little bit less but that is about the same amount that they had in spain at the
10:11 pm
peak of the pandemic there the death rate here is lower much much lower but that could change dramatically if the hospitals could no longer cope and that could happen soon ok to see newman thank you very much for the updates. so the pandemic has now killed more than 98000 people across the united states by far the worst affected country in the world it's seen 1600000 confirmed coronavirus cases the u.s. government has brought forward travel restrictions for the 2nd worst hit country as you've been hearing brazil and anyone who's been there in the previous 14 days will not be denied entry in an effort to extend virus screening the u.s. government plans to buy a 100000000 testing swabs viles by the end of the year to distribute to states let's bring in our white house correspondent kimberly halakha so as we approach this really tragic milestone of 100000 deaths what's the white house saying about it well there's been no mention of it on twitter by the u.s.
10:12 pm
president although he has been active on twitter he also played golf over the weekend which many people questioned whether or not that was appropriate given the fact that the united states is set to mark this grim milestone the white house press briefing just wrapped up and this is a question that was put to the press secretary kaley mcenaney what she said is that the u.s. president takes this number seriously and she pointed out that at one point the number was projected to be in the neighborhood of $2000000.00 potential deaths that is why the u.s. president she says close the economy in order to save lives really pushing back that the president has not done enough to prevent these 100000 deaths but we should point out that when it comes to numbers at one point the u.s. president projected that the number of americans 'd killed by covert nighty would top out at $60000.00 of course we are now approaching well above that number yeah and he continues to make accusations against his political foes on twitter. yeah
10:13 pm
and this is something that the u.s. president has been consumed by again today not only has he been attacking former president barack obama the former democratic presidential nominee hillary clinton the presumptive democratic nominee joe biden but he's also a lot of people are really zeroing in on this accusation he's been making it for a number of days against the m.s. n.b.c. anchor joe scarborough once republican congressman joe scarborough essentially the us president is alleging that or intimating that joe scarborough may have had a hand in a death that occurred when he was a congressman that one of his staffers was found dead the police investigated this was ruled as an accidental death but the u.s. president is intimating that joe scarborough may have had something to do with this now this is upset extremely the family of the victim particularly her widower who reached out to twitter requesting that the president's twitter account be shut down
10:14 pm
or at least these tweets deleted the latest from the twitter response is that that is not going to happen in fact reporters pressed the white house press secretary to ask why the president is doing this whether he would stop she simply had no answer all right it's complete thank you very much for that update from the white house meanwhile traders have returned to the floor of the new york stock exchange for the 1st time since mid march is locked down restrictions continue to be eased. to new york governor andrew cuomo who rang the bell a limited number of traders are allowed on the floor and they must wear mosques u.s. investors are optimistic about an economic recovery with stocks at their highest level in nearly 3 months. here's what's coming up on al-jazeera right after this very short break pressure continues to mount on the u.k. prime minister boris johnson to sack his top adviser for defying government blocked on rules and millions of filipinos made jobless by the pandemic say they face
