libya's state owned oil company blames the u.a.e. for a blockade on oil exports reimposed by the warlord khalifa haftar. and exit polls suggest a tight race in poland as both the incumbent president and his rival claim a victory in the runoff vote. 230000 qubit in 1000 infections in 24 hours the world has now recorded its biggest daily rise since the corona virus outbreak began last according to the world health organization and the situation in the united states the country hardest hit has taken a turn for the worse the state of florida alone has registered more than 15000 new cases as of sunday that number surpasses the highest daily tally reported by any european country and what new york recorded when the pandemic peaked there in april . florida began lifting restrictions in may elsewhere around the world south africa
3:02 am
has reimposed in light time curfew and a ban on the sale of alcohol it has the highest number of cases on the continent of africa nearly 13000000 people globally have been diagnosed with cove it 19 more than half a 1000000 have died according to the johns hopkins university track on al-jazeera patty cohen is in maryland she explains now the reason behind that in florida and other states to. when it comes to current virus in the united states a case of where you live and what your governor decided to do remember this was an issue where the u.s. president said this is up to the states they need to figure out their testing they need to figure out their hospitals so here in maryland with a republican governor took it very seriously shut it down didn't reopen quickly the hospitals have plenty of capacity the positive test results for the crowd of iris here are less than 5 percent now let's put that to florida where the governor keeps saying these cases are going up because they have more tests that is not true just
3:03 am
to give you a sense they did $25000.00 tests a day in florida a month ago their positivity rate that's the number of cases coming back positive compared to the overall test was about 5 percent now they're doing 50000 houses a day in their positivity rate is almost 20 percent so that's not because they're doing more testing it's because more people are getting sick important remember florida doesn't have a rule where says you have to wear your mask some cities do but the state has not taken that step and they haven't really shut down again even though we saw the governor to you know 2 weeks after he opened in may say journals are wrong it's not the end of the world like everything's fine but he hasn't taken any steps to change the course of this disease so let's think about it if there's 15000 today we know the way this virus operates imagine how many people those 15000 positive cases have infected over the last week to 2 weeks low that didn't their symptoms were showing up but they were still able to spread the virus so the hospitals are on the verge
3:04 am
of reaching capacity the 15000 number shows no sign of going down likely scientists say it's just going to continue to increase exponentially. particle hain well as we were mentioning at the top of the program south africa is re imposing some restrictions as cases there spike the president several run the post scientists are forecasting as many as $50000.00 by the end of the year in a televised address he explained why the government is bringing back the lockdown measures we've now decided that the sale the dispensing and the distribution of alcohol 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
3:05 am
a care few will be put in place between the hours of 9 pm and 4 am for me to miller has more now from johannesburg. lots of 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 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 are still 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 the gist of that address but also given the surge in numbers in recent weeks you also mentioned how. a
3:06 am
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 some extent around some of the easing of restrictions. libya's national oil corporation is accusing the united arab emirates of pushing the warlords after reimpose a blockade of its facilities now on friday his forces had allowed a tanker carrying crude for export to set sail for the 1st time in 6 months they now say the siege will stay until the demands of distribution of profits from exports are met the u.s. embassy in libya's quote regrets foreign backed efforts impeding the resumption of
3:07 am
oil activities ok let's take a closer look now at this dispute over oil most of libya's oil fields are located in the east they're controlled by half to self declared libyan national army supported by the u.a.e. and egypt under international agreements only libya's national oil corporation can pump out and export crude and all revenues must flow into the central bank both of those abased in tripoli the seats of the u.n. recognize government headed by fires also rush turkey's support in recent weeks has helped him to repel hafta as attempts to capture tripoli afters forces want the oil revenue to be channeled into a new bank account overseas so it can be distributed regionally after as men have occupied the oil fields since january costing libya nearly $6000000000.00 in lost revenue let's bring in imad buddy he's a nonresident senior fellow at the atlantic council where his research focuses on
3:08 am
libya he joins us on skype from toronto him about it does it kind of make sense that the u.a.e. is pushing the oem full open this way. yeah it does for several reasons the primary one which is the more extreme use the libya would say is the 1st opec members been decided to cut oil output since april this year and the fact that libyan oil will flow again is perhaps something that would disrupt the plan because libya is not really bound by this agreement between big countries that actually flows in order to increase the prices owing to the pandemic so in a way for a reason completely unrelated to libya it would make sense for the u.a.e. to do this or to push for that however the u.a.e. also has to a certain extent the long term precedence in terms of disrupting these types of
3:09 am
multilateral deals when it comes to libya and it is worth noting that at this time this particular deal has had the backing of several other countries including the u.s. so is quite a surprise that the u.a.e. would step in at the last minute and somewhat disrupted this way why is it or rather what is it that stopping half running this to his advantage because you've got the financial institutions you've got the bank and you've got the institution covering oil exports that's based in the un recognized capital city tripoli you've got 60 percent of the oil towards and around benghazi that's his power base that area of benghazi he controls it so why can't he do what he wants with the oil. well you can do do what he wants with the deal because institutionally speaking where we are a central country and owing to our rentier economy in
3:10 am
a sense libya's only let's say a source of income is oil and it is gas to a certain extent he cannot do that because the oil flow or let's say the proceeds of the oil flow into the central bank which is based in tripoli but it is worth noting that the i mean the earlier floored eastern libya doesn't receive or oil income per se everyone kind of receives that however we do have a centralized as the one that comes with its own set of problems and set of challenges doesn't mean that the reason for the blockade is too true a sickly introduce a the centralization in the libyan economic kind of blueprint it is for other reasons primarily because half the mayor and his backers need revenues and they do not want to invest more in this without having some of it lets a guarantee that he would be able to pay up when the time comes do you have to take
3:11 am
into account the have those been backed now for 6 years and a lot of his domestic and international backers backed him based on the prospect that some point in time he would seize control over libya but more specifically over tripoli and its financial institutions so ok this is one of the primary reasons why this move is not introduced understood when you talk about the backers or the external players involved in what's going on there we're talking about the u.a.e. russia and egypt is it your sense that we will see as as a springboard a reaction i guess to what's going on with the oil those 3 external actors slash countries jockeying for position and influence because at the end of the day this is about money this is about profit margin from oil. what we are already seeing to a certain extent is it was 3 countries as all countries really involved actually
3:12 am
talking to us but the problematic dynamic i would say is that since russia has came into war the limelight of the libya seasons last year really because out of most of the players involved russia was perhaps the one that wasn't as involved as it was before the april of france of last year russia no other country within the las kept within the libyan armed forces captain out of all of those backers has leverage over the u.a.e. doesn't have leverage over russia egypt doesn't have leverage over russia. actually suspect the financing the marries the wagner mercenaries that he has deployed and is also supposed to be allegedly bankrolling kind of the russian intervention so to speak egypt cannot do much to also counter russia so automatically speaking that means that while this blockade protracted and considering the protraction of this
3:13 am
situation so to speak russia is actually at the state that will be gathering the most influence and has drawn in the u.s. now is increasing the street denies in the situation and it has put it put it in quite a precarious situation because the blue magically speaking the u.s. cannot do much unless it decides to counter russia either through very very concerted efforts soft power wise so that means speaking to turkey and speaking to the u.a.e. to stop doing what they're doing or to counter russia militarily because russia is involved in the military so it has these 2 options and i don't see it taking any of the 2 and that means that libya is headed to a certain extent in some form some way shape or form to either a yemen or as syria likes scenario unfortunately that would be a shame ok in my body thank you so much for talking to us there from toronto thanks for talking. thank you well those developments come as images on social media
