. that will likely depend on how president bush or not a fence on whether he'll become seriously ill as was he produced prime minister blair johnson or whether he'll be back at work in a week or 2 telling everyone i told you so. all this despite the more than 65000 positions lost their lives so far to the so-called little china. you see in human al-jazeera. michael caine cohen is an associate professor at the put difficult catholic university of religion there and he says that both in arizona skewed work in his favor politically this is not a man of deep insights i think it 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 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
10:05 am
police on its allegations of one do influence taking next week so the timing is not as no one stays late course the timing is not altogether bad if it stays within these sort of 85 percent that are the light forces and it will likely strengthen those who are. who are doubting the severity of the outbreak in the hospital it may actually end up lowering the adhesion to a cutting into it getting to the sort of distancing myself here since the great again me we've seen this kind of catastrophic response of the that the country is had has to deal with a total lack of leadership from the federal right but brazil had every possibility of having an absolutely modeled response to this and then make we have a very strong public health system we have highly trained doctors we have good i.c.u. density we have you know experience of pandemics treatment of of hiv and aids here
10:06 am
is actually quite quite advanced so you know it's a sign of failure of leadership in the federal level this that this is turned out the way that. to serbia where thousands of protesters are tried to storm parliament angry about tough coronavirus restrictions the president alexandrovitch put a weekend curfew back in place after the country's worst day yet all the pun demick with 13 deaths and brian has this report. protesters and police battle on the streets around serbia's parliament was hounds try to storm the building some briefly managing to get inside before being pushed back was they're angry at president aleksander of the church and his decision to reimpose coronavirus restrictions. were some chanted calling him a thing. was for others demanded his resignation their
10:07 am
government is trying for the 2nd time. put the cyclone. to impose current theory that far reaching it is only a serious possibility because they made all the mistakes i was. the mistake they say was lifting what was one of europe's strictest lockdowns. we gathered here to protest because our president lifted the state of emergency because of the election and now he wants to impose it again. critics say the president lifted restrictions so he could hold parliamentary elections last month has passed on an overwhelming victory not clubs we're back in action it was a tennis tournament shops were open and 25000 fans packed a belgrade stadium for the country's most popular football match at the station slammed by an epidemiologist as an enormous totally unjustified risk the president
10:08 am
now says the situation in belgrade is critical after his from odisha we made lots of mistakes we have probably relaxed too much everyone thought it was all over scituate soon the situation in belgrade is alarming and it's serious in 4 more cities in serbia but belgrade is really in a critical situation. the capital's hospitals are almost full so the military has been building temporary facilities gatherings of more than 5 people are now banned and the u.k. few this weekend before they and the anger against the church means the crowds are unlikely to stay at home. brian al jazeera. well coronavirus cases continue to climb in the united states the number of dead has now passed $130000.00 infections are surging in states that push to reopen early president dollar trump he continues to downplay the resurgence of the poem the

american insists he wants schools to reopen in the new school year my kind of reports now from washington d.c. . texas was one of the 1st states to ease its mitigating measures responding to pressure from president trump in mid april who insisted he wanted states to open up to restart the economy. now with stealing with a massive increase in infections joining florida and reporting more than 10000 cases in a day a figure matched only by new york state in the early stages of the pandemic in the next 2 weeks we're probably going to end up being what new york was. i think that's what's going to happen donna ingraham has been an i.c.u. nurse for 17 years last week she went from caring for patients to becoming a patient herself after testing positive i really at one point in time asked god to take me the pain was ridiculous. it was
10:10 am
simply i mean in my mind i couldn't breathe think i didn't have to be proud of ventilator the republican governor who ordered the early opening of texas is now dialing back and reimposing mitigating measures including the wearing off masks we wore not have to shut it down if everyone will follow this very simple rule and that is just get a mask like this where it makes sure that you don't get covered 18 and you don't give it to anybody else. but the u.s. president continues to be masculists and even as the cases surge is not putting pressure on governors to open schools for the new year at the end of august what 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 as you know this is a disease it's a horrible disease but young people do extraordinarily well the reaction from
10:11 am
teachers was furious that is so callous and him so callous when we do it wrong people da little people can get sick you had asthma you've got bad allergies and you're 6 years old you could die if we do this ron there was anger too among many in congress which was officially notified that president trump is pulling the united states out of the world health organization the notice period is 12 months so the u.s. will actually only leave the w.h.o. in july next year between then and now is an election and presidential candidate joe biden says one of his 1st acts as president will be to reverse the decision effectively it will be up to the voters to decide mike hanna al-jazeera washington
10:12 am
well actually approaches a political commentator and a board member of republican women for progress and she says withdrawing from the show is 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 that his response from his own administration and 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 membership by not having the u.s. at the table and that really is what the problem is here it's going to affect
10:13 am
clinical trials it 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 is leadership right now it seems to be a large vacuum there when it comes to the current officeholder at $1600.00 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. still ahead here on al-jazeera a the u.n. says will save millions of lives in syria is vetoed by russia and china and will restrict delivering us. officials in iran urge people to take coronavirus seriously
