1:10 am
now also one must remember that here in washington d.c. itself there has been also an uptake in the number of cases this despite the fact that some of the mitigating measures are going to be eased on friday and earlier in the day the president's press secretary announced that the president really wanted to push ahead with holding the g. 7 summit here in d.c. face to face at the end of next month certainly once again president trump insisting that he wants to go ahead with the summit in person his press secretary saying that nothing would symbolize the united states opening up more than hosting the g. 7 summit within washington d.c. itself this though as i say at a time when a number of states have opened early are showing an increase in the number of cases of coronavirus and meanwhile mike the president himself has been busy on twitter and he was giving a press conference a short time ago what do you have to say. well what's very interesting with

other guy on the top stories on al-jazeera a study is warning that brazil's total death toll from the corona virus could climb 5 fold by early august it comes as the world health organization says the pandemic is still accelerating across much of latin america. many venezuelan migrants stranded in neighboring countries are now desperate to return to say they're struggling to survive as car virus infections rise rapidly in their host countries . the death toll for the pandemic in the u.s. now stands at more than 98000 with over 1600000 confirmed cases. we're turning to our top story the pandemic outbreak in brazil earlier i spoke to the governor of south palo states joe doria i started by asking him how he's
1:16 am
enforcing virus restrictions while the country's presidential you're both so narrow sense the conflicting message. here in some paulo we we have a social he's a lation we are 2 months and a half into social he's relation and asking people to stay home and use mosques that's still all to use mosques and now so asking people to stay at home but unfortunately the position of presidents both on audio is completely different is us going to the people to go to the streets. making very bad example leaving us in brazil that without a mask and asking people to use chloroquine so we are very concerned about that is not just my road but also we have other 26 governors in brazil all these recalled mandamus so show us all asian
1:17 am
against the position of the president of brazil is a very sad moment to us because we have to come back to a virus the current a virus and unfortunately the bo'sun out of virus so does this not all really complicate the fight against the virus if there isn't a coordinated government program and you don't have the support of the president's became more difficult you're right of course could be much better if we could have in brazil just one way the right way to protect lives to save lives and to follow their health the world health organization as we are doing here in sao paulo unfortunately that's not the position of president of brazil and how is this filtering to people on the ground because as you're saying and the president himself is urging people to go to work some state governors including yourself yourself are telling people not to go to work so clearly there's
1:18 am
a conflicting message. yes conflict in masses. very sad and difficult moment that we are fighting against here in sao paulo brazil but fortunately here the population of some polish state we have here 46000000 people living here in some paulo almost 55 percent of the people are following their rights. and they are you staying at home using mosques following the orientation of the right orientation of the state government but then for a cli when they watch television at night they see the president of brazil without a mask asking people to go to the streets asking people to go to war. in opposition of their correct orientation that is stay at home and protect themselves and protect lives so that was the governor of south paulo
1:19 am
speaking to me earlier on well as fears grow that the corona virus is spreading almost unchecked in war torn yemen the u.n. is warning that its aid efforts are close to breaking point even before the virus struck around 80 percent of the population relied on humanitarian assistance now the u.n. refugee agency says desperate families are turning to begging child labor and under age marriage to try to survive. we're reaching a potential breaking point in our programs where if we don't receive funding soon many of our programs and security are. to internally displaced young and human use may have to stop and that could have a severe impact on. some 1000000 people who many of whom rely on these programs to meet them most basic needs including shelter and from food food
