12:01 am
celebrates a narrow lead in the country's basically 40 election with less than one percent between him and his rival it's too close to call and the aid agencies warn russia's victory in limiting syria a deliveries to just one border crossing will cost lives and intensify the suffering of 1300000 people. and only weddings with the sports news including an historic victory for the west indies cricket said behind closed doors in england back to the top of the podium for formula one world champion. as he makes up for last week's disappointment in austria. welcome to the program from the americas to asia the coronavirus pandemic is infecting people around the planet wreck old rights world health organization has reported more than 230000 cases in the last 24 hours the highest single daily
12:02 am
increase since the outbreak began globally the death toll rate has been steady around $5000.00 people are dying each day but in the world's worst affected country infections and fatalities of both rising the u.s. state of florida has shattered the national record for daily. cases more than $15000.00 were reported on sunday that's higher than any of america's other states at the peak of their outbreaks well just to put it into some context if florida were a country it would rank 4th in the world for the most new cases a day behind the united states brazil and india the surgeon infections have already exceeded the highest daily tallies reported by any european country so far the total number infected in florida is now nearing 270008 more than 4000 people have died across the united states nationally more than 135000 people have now died
12:03 am
well patty calling joins us live from outside a hospital in maryland and if i can ask you about the situation in florida obviously reporting at a high single day total there since the pandemic began what do we know about how the state is coping. the state is not coping well at all i mean i think about it was about 16 weeks ago or cross the country basically they shut everything down and there was one reason for that and all good leaders came out and said you don't want hospitals like the one behind me to become overwhelmed well in hospital after hospital in florida that is happening they're running out of beds they are running out of room to treat people and let's just think about this it is the highest state incur the highest increase per day for a state since this pandemic began in florida more than $15000.00 cases so what is that going to look like going forward what do we know about this virus we know that you're asymptomatic for as much as 14 days as in that time you are spreading the virus and so people are 15000 people have now gotten sick that means all of the
12:04 am
people they saw in the week to 2 weeks before they became symptomatic will they are all likely become infected and the reason why is because masks the simple this aspect of just wearing a mask is not necessarily required or mandated in the entire state of florida and many things are still happening sorry i have a bug that really wants to hang out with us today. but they're still having some restaurants are open some churches are open so they really haven't changed the behavior that they need to need to do to change the trajectory of this disease so drastically if you think this number is shocking give it a couple days. so i suppose the numbers are likely to keep jumping if it's not changing people's behavior unless there are national old measures taken by the state itself to impose some kind of lockdown on business and.
12:05 am
exactly and i think one of the things that could have changed the trajectory of this is yesterday we saw u.s. president donald trump visit a hospital just outside of washington and he was pictured wearing a mask so that could have sent the message to his supporters that masks are ok because in this country somehow the act of wearing a mask has become a political statement it says what your affiliation is but at the same time the president came out and with his words said well if you're house bill you should wear a mask so it's not clear it's going to have the impact that he was in fact hoping for but i do think that you're starting to see more and more and i don't know evidence that people are in fact taking this seriously we i can tell you personally friends whose parents said it was just a hoax it meant to make sure donald trump doesn't get reelected who've now come down with the coronavirus so the more those stories spread on social media among among groups of friends the more likely you are to see people wear masks but again it's very dependent on what state you're in the here in maryland it's republican governor but he took it very seriously he sent the message wear a mask or i'll shut it down again and so you've seen that positivity test rate
12:06 am
that's so important stay below 5 percent just to give you a sense of florida a month ago they were testy about $25000.00 people per day the positivity rate was 5 percent now they've doubled their testing to $50000.00 test per day which by the way is nowhere near where needs to be to slow the spread and there are positivity rate is almost 20 percent so they're tested more but that doesn't mean that's not why more people are getting sick more people are getting sick because they're actually more people getting sick unlike what the president likes to say all right thank you very much patty calling bring us all the latest we want to go from the u.s. to south africa now the president there is reinstating a nighttime curfew and ban on alcohol sales is country grapples with the outbreak that's infected infecting $500.00 people every hour more than $13000.00 new coven 1000 cases have been reported over the past 24 hours the highest on record for the country hitting 4000 people have died of course or often in just the last week.
12:07 am
we've now decided that the so you the dispensing and the distribution of oklahoma will be suspended with immediate effect. there is now clear evidence that the resumption of alcohol sales has resulted in substantial pressure being put on hospitals including trauma and i.c.u. units therefore as an additional measure to reduce the pressure on hospitals a kid if you will be put in place between the hours of 9 pm and 4 am. well for me to miller has been following developments that are from johannesburg and she describes how the government has been responding. also africa had quite a strict lockdown in place as the 1st infections were recorded back in march and april some of those restrictions have been eased but the president also said
12:08 am
that south africans aren't at hearing to the regulations that are meant to try and stop the spread of covert 19 he says people aren't wearing mosque there is still a massive social gatherings especially on weekends massive funerals where people are likely to catch coronavirus because they're not adhering to any of the health regulations in place so that was very much of the gist of that address but also given the surge in numbers in recent weeks you also mentioned how. a quarter of the infections are quarter of the deaths recorded and then are sitting at just over 4000 were in the last week alone and now south africa seeing an average of 12000 new infections every day and every day we're seeing a new record in the number of infections and just how concerned the government is at this point and this is what's led to the government reversing or backpedaling to
12:09 am
some extent around some of the easing of restrictions india has also been hard hit country by this it's reporting a record of nearly 21000 new cases of the virus in the past 24 hours on shoes day a week long lockdown will be imposed in bangalore one of the country's largest cities in the capital of the southern state of karnataka new cases take the national total of people have been infected up to nearly 850000 at least 22 and a half 1000 people have died. meanwhile 3 generations of bollywood's family have now tested positive for the coronavirus former miss world. and 8 year old daughter have been infected it comes a day after her father in law the hollywood legend amitabh bachchan and husband of a check were admitted to hospital for covert 19 as well. so now we go to poland's presidential race it's too close to call exit polls have given the conservative
12:10 am
incumbent andre due to a marginal lead of 15.4 percent he's up against socially liberal walsall mayor. is predicted to get 49.6 percent of the vote the result could decide the political future of nearly $14000000.00 people as sonicare go it's. an extraordinarily tight race and the result on my courage by a small margin under a do that is projected to stay in office 5 years in the role propped up by the rightwing law and justice party yet for all the control they wield in poland do death failed to secure a comfortable win so yes not a bad example to the good i want to make it clear and strong that i am happy about my victory for now it's only an exit poll victory but looking at the past results as you all saw it it has grown in my favor. this is the man snapping at the heels of the incumbent. also
12:11 am
a centrist pro european union mayor he launched his campaign at the last minute but it's proven to be a spoiler for president do this assured when. all the votes just need to be counted which in truth will make this evening a nerve wracking one what everyone in poland but i am absolutely convinced when we count each vote we will be victorious and we will definitely win under do those deeply conservative and homophobic agenda was an appeal to his party's nationalist base his constitutional reforms that we can the independence of the countries judiciary also put him at odds with the you compared with reference koskie who's a liberal program called new solidarity was designed to evoke the movement that helped and communist rule in poland he is seeking stronger relations with the e.u. than his. competitor campaigned on it despite the clash between 2 radically different agendas voters came out in record numbers the highest turnout in the
12:12 am
country since 1909 the final results won't be declared until tuesday and there will also be the votes of some half a 1000000 poles who are living outside the country in a race this tight every single one of them will count sunny day you go. joining me now via skype from warsaw is wojciech schip bill ski he's editor in chief of the political magazine a visit grad insight even though he's the favorite to win victory of this nature will come as a disappointment to under a duty given everything he poured into his campaign yes indeed this is a man who was almost certain to win just 2 or 3 months ago when the campaign was already going on but the vote has been postponed. because of the call that 19 now he's facing a very tough race. he's still there is still
12:13 am
a possibility he's actually going to lose but he's playing it cool and so far he's showing his confidence in winning the race overall we'll know it by tuesday. even if he doesn't win the race overall his opponent has done fairly well to be able to. for the race to have been so closely fought. yes i think that. has won either way as the leader of the opposition today in poland is shown to the opposition can score so much i mean half of the half of the vote which with amazing turnout in a country that is one of several countries with a liberal autocratic government in place. that shows the way and his methods of political combat is going to be inspiring for for many others
12:14 am
in the region of europe or perhaps over all he's going to fuel the party he represents for the election those upcoming in 3 years so it does bode well for the opposition but on the other hand we saw andre due to really launching some brutal attacks on his opponent also support from the media in that country how would you describe dudas campaign in this election. oh this campaign has been mostly on the defensive he indeed has been trying to reach to different minority groups to pick up votes that were on the fringes of the of the political spectrum and so he referred to bigotry against germany and germans he went against the tea but also he referred to on t.v. acts a nation movements this conspiracy theory that even movements that there are there
12:15 am
in poland just the week after he secured so to say. a promise from u.s. president that poland is part of the some sort of a new vaccination program from us during president did as visit to us so it was very it seemed a dip it appeared as very chaotic overall all right well thanks very much will a continue to keep an eye on those figures that the polish president currently currently had by very tiny margin in that runoff race for now thank you very much watch actually belsky now another story that we're following at least $800.00 sailors have suffered minor injuries after an explosion on board a u.s. military ship in san diego fick black smoke is still coming from the u.s.s. bonhomme richard which which was docked at the san diego naval base budget sea crews have been trying to put the blaze out front but it's some $160.00 sailors were on board when the fire broke out. watching the news hour live from london much
12:16 am
more still ahead mollies opposition leader calls for calm after 4 people die in protest against the president 2 of them teenagers iran's supreme leader scolds politicians for turning on each other is the country navigates a target and period. they transport he has declined to take part in the n.b.a.'s latest social justice campaign. now aid agencies say that lives will be lost as a result of a u.n. security council decision that cuts and other vital lifeline for more than a 1000000 displaced syrians after days of deadlock russia forced members to compromise allowing only one border crossing to remain open for a deliveries the u.n. originally authorized 8 to flow through 4 border crossings in 20142 from turkey one from iraq the other from jordan 6 months ago opposition from russia and china
12:17 am
forced the routes through iraq in jordan to be dropped now they've been reduced to a single crossing at baba howa agency say that makes it harder to get humanitarian supplies to the 1300000 people dependent on aid and the rebel held north west of syria among them off a 1000000 children as reports. there of in july nearly a decade of conflict the syrians are now facing even more uncertainty nearly 4000000 are in camps stranded on the border with turkey they live in a rebel held territory in the north west while relying on international 8 bubble however is a lifeline for the 3000000 syrians in italy a province. which was the main entry point for a channel to civilians in jobless under 3 and has been shut down after russian. for many civilians this could have catastrophic consequences
12:18 am
well i think. we're facing a shortage of aid to food and clothes the important thing is bread people can't afford to buy it from outside we need basics like we saw sugar and cooking oil and it has. them the situation is very bad we don't get enough aid but people depend on it to survive in the camp if even less comes they will face huge hardship with 2 crossing points where barely surviving will be under even more pressure if it's reduced to one. humanitarian aid agencies worry that reducing the number of crossing points will further choke off vital a for years the un ran its humanitarian operations through 4 crossing points 2 in turkey one in iraq and one in jordan. the international organization warns stop being cross border
12:19 am
a delivery will cause suffering and death now this is happening at a time when the humanitarian crisis in the country has actually got worse we had almost a 1000000 people displaced earlier this year so we are very concerned that the amount of access for humanitarian aid is being rude used at the very time when we actually need more access stranded and surviving mainly through a serious face another major crisis with covert 19 spreading in opposition territory limited pay delivery to one border crossing will also likely further delay much needed medical supplies to contain the outbreak for now russia will have a bigger say over cross border of operations and for many displaced syrians pushed by the army to retake rebel held areas will leave them with 2 options face starvation or surrender house in marbella 0 well matt hensley is the
12:20 am
policy and communications advisor for the aid group oxfam in syria joins us via skype from damascus and even before the recent economic breakdown we've seen there were concerns from the u.n. about hunger in the north west what now after this u.n. security council vote. well i think the vote is deeply concerning as you say this year the situation across syria has been getting worse the economic situation covert 19 and we're seeing more hunger i think a 1000000 and a half people across syria more in the last couple of months going hungry than before hundreds of thousands of families in northwest syria have relied on the aid that's been provided through this through this mechanism and they're going to be concerned about whether that assistance might not make it to them anymore and of course the crossing from iraq into northeast syria also not no longer part of the
12:21 am
operation and that means many thousands of families across the northeast syria find themselves in the same situation and as things are getting worse you know we need more access more assistance to people who are an incredibly vulnerable situations and obviously this vote the lack of a deal in the u.n. security council is refer specifically to u.n. aid but as a result of this vote even non u.n. aid would be affected. certainly the use of the crossing supports the entire 8 operation in the u.n. mechanisms help to support and geos and others in delivering assistance so you know that's going to mean that the operation is going to have to work in different ways whether that's through aid coming through other crossing the other crossing point from bubble however and having to move across conflict lines the goshi actions with different armed groups or whether that's aid agencies like oxfam who operates in for damascus now we need to see more 'd access provided crossed
12:22 am
a line from damascus by the by the government of syria so that we have a chance to reach those people in need and of course not in any interest say that that that was highly unlikely if not impossible. it's definitely a very challenging task for safety and security issues in working cross-line there's different differences with community acceptance of how those operations can work it's very difficult but people have a right to assistance when they're in need and we need all modalities possible to be working so that includes continually using babel how up it includes us trying to do as much as we can to reach across the line because these people deserve assistance by any mechanism that can work so 1300000 displaced people is a hearing and hashim report there half a 1000000 of them children f.h. back channel negotiations don't work if they can't be rooted what does the future hold for them what if people are cut off from assistance and it could be truly
12:23 am
devastating as you know people are going hung on very people don't have access to clean water if covert 19 spreads in northwest syria people aren't going to be able to so surely distance in camps and shelters people can't maintain good hygiene practices without access to clean safe water and people could be going hungry so it's going to place people in a very desperate situation it could mean many more displace again seek refuge in other areas have to try and cross conflict lines could be even more methods of coping mechanisms people going without food child labor or people putting themselves in harm's way so it's absolutely vital that we find ways to continue to get assistance to these people who really need it thank you for joining us from damascus matt hammes a promising commanche communications adviser for oxfam. now to mali prayers have been held for anti-government protesters killed in the capital bamako at least 4 people have died in demonstrations over the last 2 days
12:24 am
influential eman holy duca who is spearheading the demonstrations has called on protesters to remain calm the tensions are high despite president brand of the car kate has promised to form a national unity government and dissolve a constitutional court. first of all i want to pay tribute to the young who died in the latest protests i call on all mali and soon the young in particular not to fall into the trap of violence we can be strong without being violent our determination for this struggle is unshakeable we fight to restore the honor of the nation to end this catastrophic situation that this government has led us into for the decay of mali to no longer be a reality but a memory this movement we have started is the beginning of hope our desires are met address says resentment has been building in money. all of a sudden in june the constitutional court declared the results or the overturn the results in such an areas where opposition leaders say they are poised to win
12:25 am
thereby turning the tables against the ruling party probably holding more seats in parliament than the president's party and as a result this has built over time and we saw the protests demonstrations across mali and the attempts on fridays to set such an office is to blockade certain offices and of course forcing the national broadcaster of there the television station of however even before then there are grumblings across mali above the economy of the poor hunting of the economy were president because he scored as well as the security situation in the north and center of mali a lot of money is not happy with the continuing killings if you go going until it is in central mali as well as the. crisis in the north of the country where we have a look and other groups killing and attacking military and civilian targets in that
12:26 am
area a lot of money is wished that these can go away but after years of leadership by a president the book of a book or a book or you broke it or they believe that the government is not well equipped to handle the situation and as a result they want to see that the government gives way for a transitional government that will organize fresh elections maybe a leader may emerge to handle the situation properly now to libya the u.n. recognized government has one elderly faffed us forces appear to be mobilizing towards the city of tripoli bass administration shared these images on social media saying they showed armed vehicles into russian made at defense systems moving towards the strategic port city forces backing the government have massed on the outskirts of set which is a gateway to major oil facilities in that region. the russian mining company responsible for an oil spill in the arctic is saying there's been another leak nicholas says around $45.00 tons of aviation fuel have spilled from

to show is in the forecast lots of dry across northern parts of africa but lots of very heavy rain for central areas. the ultranationalist marks connected with one of the world's worst humanitarian crisis we doe as any migrant joining with the military to impose a deadly political agenda we have devoted our nation what has happened to the revenge that's one of the biggest stains on the country as a whole. religion this is the politics me and an unholy alliance on al-jazeera. people have come to expect a lot from al-jazeera over the years reporting the commitment to on the reporter places the commitment to the human story. but it's also the idea of challenging
12:30 am

channel the french interior minister don meehan and the u.k. home secretary pretty fatality kalai to outline the deal they say the joint police intelligence unit will allow for better exchanges of information about smuggling networks channel crossing attempts have risen over the last year despite the danger of heavy maritime traffic. meanwhile u.k. government announced plans to spend $900000000.00 on border controls after a break said the money will be used to hire $500.00 new staff and create infrastructure to cope with the flow of goods across the border with the e.u. a separate plan for northern ireland which borders the republic of ireland will be announced later this month the u.k. will leave the e.u. customs union and single market on december 31st means barker is in westminster and says that the u.k. is trying to send a strong signal to the e.u. . the british government wants to refocus the attention back on breaks it after months of being distracted dealing with covert 19 it wants to show that it has all the plans in place to potentially leave the single market without

a customs deal in place with the e.u. that's why it's announced that it will spend $900000000.00 on bolstering britain's borders it will employ $500.00 extra border guards and build new infrastructure inland from big ports like dover to avoid the ferry palpable risk of long tailbacks of lorries at the start of next year it plans to introduce these changes over a period of 6 months starting in january and that's raised some concerns that the plans could be exploited by smugglers while they're still being formed or that it could well lead to trade disputes between the u.k. and other countries as well so the british government really wants to send a clear signal to brussels that it's willing to do everything it possibly can to make sure that it can potentially go it alone this is a high stakes game when it comes to cutting a deal with brussels we are yet to see
