doctors he scorned calls to respect social distancing he seemed to relish defying even his own advisors only as pressing the flesh and rarely using a face mask many members of his cabinet had become infected even his wife's grandmother some joked he'd made a pact with the devil until what was probably the inevitable happened book award for author of you're a cutie my fil the west side. everybody knew that sooner or later current of our sort of reach an important part of population a lot of people like me for example if i would not have done the test i would not know about a result that was positive yes it was positive. so far bosso not has admitted to having a feeder and body aches but continues to brush off the severity of an illness he once described as a little true even taking off his face mask after testing positive. for the

bureaucratic ok so you can see my face who wants to see my face i'm fine calm thank god. thanks that i was that prayed for me was supporting me i'm fine thank god. it's not just bill some had his health but his political reputation that's at stake he's waged war against lockdowns saying they're more harmful than the illness. he's clashed with governors who ordered businesses closed and the supreme court which recently felt compelled to order the president to wear a face mask or pay a steep fine just taking his cue from donald trump also not or has threatened to withdraw from the w.h.o. and has ordered the brazil's health system distribute the anti malaria drug hydroxide chloroquine despite warnings that it's not safe or proven to be effective through treating coronavirus he's in fact using it now himself. nevertheless wishes him away. well i'm
6:04 am
a speedy and full recovery from from this disease other leaders around the world have of have had similar experiences and i think it brings home cross all the the reality of this fires that will likely depend on how president paul soon i don't fence on whether he'll become seriously ill as was a british prime minister boris johnson or whether he'll be back at work in a week or 2 telling everyone i told him so. all this despite the more than 65000 positions who have lost their lives so far so called little to no. you see in human al-jazeera. time michael kinkel he's an associate professor at the pontifical catholic university of rio de janeiro he says illness could work in his favor this is not a man of deep insights i think and also it also true it's also extraordinary convenient for him in some ways indeed if it stays our late course right he'll be able to
6:05 am
continue on his narrative that it's just a flu and can be cured easily he was also scheduled to be deposed by the federal police on its allegations of. the new influence taking next week so the timing is not known and one stays late course the time it's not altogether bad if it stays within these sort of 85 percent that are the life forces and it will likely strengthen those who are. who are doubting the severity of the outbreak in the title it may actually end up lowering the end even to cutting into your getting to be distancing measures here which isn't likely to begin we've seen this kind of catastrophic response that the that the country is had has to deal with a total lack of leadership from the federal represent one had every possibility of having an absolutely model response to this and make we have a very strong public health system we have highly trained doctors we have good
6:06 am
i.c.u. density we have what you know experience with pandemics treatment of hiv and aids here is actually quite quite advanced so you know it's a sign of failure of leadership in the federal level that this is turned out when it has angry crowds of trying to storm services parliament after the announcement of return to tough coronavirus restrictions on the right police force upon thousands of protesters many calling for president alexander view change to resign and he's put a weekend curfew back in place after serving as worst day of the pandemic with 13 deaths rechange lifted restrictions in the weeks before his win in last month's elections including allowing crowds back to sporting events elaine and do such as following the clashes around parliament which went all into the early morning. the president alexander who teach announced some new measures because of the quote on
6:07 am
a virus he said that during the weekend belgrade will be locked down and maybe not only belgrade but the entire serbia because the situation would put on a virus is a very bad and the worst is here in belgrade there we have more than 4000 people in the hospitals just today 13 people died over the coronavirus this is the highest number in one day so what happened today is that people were very angry of this situation and we did this kind of measure as to why because serbia was already has already been in a state of emergency before and then dorothy said it's ok now things are going better let's have an election so we had the parliamentary elections and the day after numbers started to increase and today the situation is even worse than before so people are angry. they think that the money should be invested in
6:08 am
hospitals and not in the election and this is what happened tonight it seems like the situation is a little bit quieter now but tomorrow maybe we'll see the same picture again. spittles in several u.s. states say they're intensive care units are reaching capacity as crown of ours cases continue to jump but the number of people who've died has surpassed 130000 infections have been surging in states which push to reopen early including texas and florida but the president won't schools to reopen after the summer break we want to do is we want to get our schools open we want to get them open quickly beautifully in the fall and the you know this is a disease it's a horrible disease but young people do extraordinarily well. 2 weeks we're probably going to end up being what new york was 2 months ago i think that's what's going to
6:09 am
happen and that is going to happen particularly because we had the 4th of july. holiday i mean lot of people did not listen a lot of people went out and more likely than not we're going to see those patients come into the hospital over the next 2 weeks and the u.s. has begun the formal process of withdrawing from the world health organization the trump administration has officially notified the united nations and coal rest but it will take a year to complete the process president trump accuses the agency of mishandling the cave in $1000.00 outbreak and being a puppet of china ashley pratt is a political commentator and a board member of the public and women for progress she says it's another reckless decision by president trump which will put americans at risk. for him it will just stand to be a talking point in his campaign you know this whole entire time he's blaming the virus on other countries and not taking responsibility for the disastrous effects
6:10 am
but his response from his own administration is that here there are states that opened way too early and a lot of those states are states with republican governors who felt political pressure from this president and this administration to reopen and as a result their cases are surging in spiking in those states and now they're faced with a tough decision to shut down their states again facing future economic impacts as a result places a huge void in the who's membership by not having the u.s. at the table and that really is what the problem is here it's going to affect clinical trials that will affect future vaccines it will affect responses to emerging outbreaks and that's really where americans are now being put at risk because of a reckless decision by the president so i do think who you know is at a situation right now where they're going to realize that the united states membership was a crucial one and we've always been looked to as a leader i'm not sure that there's leadership right now it seems to be a large vacuum there when it comes to the current officeholder at $1600.00
6:11 am
pennsylvania avenue but at the same time i do think because this will take up to a year hopefully a responsible decision is made but this again does put americans at risk because of the fact that we won't be information sharing with other countries that are working to develop vaccines and host clinical trials to really try to find innovations and solutions to fight these deadly diseases. well still ahead here on al-jazeera britain says it will resume arms sales to saudi arabia despite worries about how they could be used in yemen. and on the defensive mexico's president is accused of selling out as he prepares to meet donald trump at the white house. hallo the 5th named storm of the hurricane season has disappeared now but we have
6:12 am
potential of something else this massive cloud he may not look very much for is full of tropical air and it's got a propensity to circulate so i might just come up to something as it goes off the coast of south carolina or wraps the rain back into georgia some to watch will be significant but it might be yet another wet event the southern states are looking pretty wet from big thunderstorms unfortunately for the west it's too dry dry now for the red flag warnings and that was fire danger once more big showers are running through the plains so as the midwest on a frontal system and still potentially quite sundry in the central plains or prairie's of canada notice here laurens just north of raleigh as a potential circulation will keep knowledge just for fun i think more than anything else in the caribbean a mass of showers are running through the smaller islands but equally there are thunderstorms everywhere in the immediate future is b. of puerto rico and i think the dominican republic will get some fairly heavy weather then it go into haiti then moves further west course cuba generates

6:19 am
a year and the government is saying while there were possible breaches of international humanitarian law these were exceptions and not a pattern it's not clear what methodology they used it certainly contradicts that u.n. panel of experts who found widespread possible war crimes in the conflict between saudi and yemen and it's not clear how many isolated incidents it would take to constitute a pattern but the u.k. has concluded that the saudi government is demonstrating a commitment to comply with international humanitarian door and i quote there is therefore no clear risk that arms and military equipment exported to saudi might be used in serious contraventions of international humanitarian law so what this means is the government's now going to be processing that backlog of orders from saudi it includes a multi-million dollar deal for typhoon fighter jets and earlier i spoke to the campaign against arms trade who really spearheaded the original case against the
6:20 am
government they said they are baffled by this decision they've they've described it as morally bankrupt and reprehensible and they said that their lawyers are now going to be looking into ways to challenge it a group of we can muslims living in exile is accusing china of committing genocide and calling on the international criminal court to investigate they've submitted evidence alleging rights violations that implicate more than 30 senior chinese officials including president xi jinping rights groups a law that a 1000000 we can muslims are held in prison terms of being punished and brainwashed china denies this and doesn't recognize the i.c.c. has jurisdiction. 80000 rescue workers have been deployed in japan in an effort to reach survivors stranded by flooding and landslides days of torrential rains have caused devastation across the southwest of the country at least 54 people have been confirmed dead more than dozens remain missing but as

6:25 am
emerson and what to call of robert mugabe in 27000 he said he's going to be tough on corruption but people say they still waiting to see results is the phrase in zimbabwe called catch and release with some people feel that senior politician senior officials are sometimes arrested for alleged corruption they go to court a trial is held but these trials drag on for weeks months sometimes even years the people either get off scot free or nothing is really done about anything so people are now watching over diam lawyer very very close to his case very very closely when he finally does go to trial we want to see what the result is going to be. the 1st copies of a new book point old have been distributed very trump who's a trained psychologist alleges the president is a liar who's world few were shaped by his father's disapproval or want us correspondent kimberly home tons more from washington d.c. mary truck the president's niece has made some say. gave in criticisms of donald trump accusing the president of being a sociopath power and that this has much to do with his upbringing particularly the
6:26 am
hands of his father that it was a toxic family dynamic that created the donald trump that we know today now it is important to know that mary trump the president's niece her father did die of alcohol related and related diseases that he was depressed and the president for his part speaks very fondly about his brother but what makes some of her criticisms particularly credible given the fact that you know families do have squabbles is the fact that as you mentioned she's a clinical psychologist so she feels particularly well suited to tell this story she says that she's releasing this both because she could no longer remain silent she claims that donald trump destroyed her family but she does not want him to destroy her country so she's putting this out in advance of the u.s. election now in this comes at a particularly difficult time for the u.s. president because of course this is the latest in

a sort of tell all book to be released we've also had just weeks ago the tell all that was also critical of the present from the former national security advisor john bolton and we should add to that that this is a difficult time for president struggling to deal with quote a virus and also of course the poll numbers that show him lagging in the polls next to the contender for president joe biden the democratic presidential nominee. it's a meeting that's officially about trains but the summit in washington later on wednesday between the u.s. and mexican presidents is already provoking a mixture of anger and bewilderment and will repel explains why. mexican president . is meeting with u.s. president donald trump this week at the invitation of the white house but what would normally be a standard meeting between 2 world leaders has stirred criticisms but. by sickly there is an election season underway in the united states and the mexican
6:28 am
president's visit could be misinterpreted but also over the years president trump has expressed many offensive things toward mexico and mexicans this is why many people have a deep distrust and reject the way president trump has treated us. president trump is not very well liked in mexico and much of that has to do with his past rhetoric regarding the mexican people when mexico sends its people there not sending their best they're bringing drugs they're bringing in crime they're rapists and mexico will pay for the wall. one to do attitude soured further in 2019 when president trump threatened mexico with export tariffs unless mexico agreed to carry out a strict militarized immigration enforcement policy since the start of his administration 19 months ago mexican president and disciplinary lopez obrador has sought to avoid a political conflict with president trump opting instead for
6:29 am

6:30 am
president lopez over the other says the focus of his u.s. visit is to mark the launch of the us mexico canada trade agreement or u.s. m.c.a. a replacement to nafta that mexico's president has said will generate jobs and help reactivate the mexican economy when read up a little mexico city and you can follow all of the stories we're covering here on al-jazeera by logging on to our website al-jazeera dot com of course the credit iris pandemic in brazil is our top story. what you know is there with me cell robin a reminder of our top news stories brazil's president has canceled the shuttle for the coming days after testing positive a covert 19 jiah ball sonora who is now in corinth seen at home has repeatedly downplayed the threat from the virus go towards. the west side here everybody knew that sooner or later
