1:11 pm
a number of requests from health workers from trade is to impose this lockdown which they are saying is not general but containment so and what they call red zones already but i've been speaking to local journalists in srinagar and they say that this very much looks and feels like a complete lockdown especially because all those red zones a sort of scattered it's really difficult to move around these places the government has interested me it's said that it's going to open up tourism that people from outside of. need a going to be able to travel to the region from tuesday and remember that this is an area that's been under. a virus it's been nearly a year since the indian government vote its autonomy and put it on to many restrictions people have really suffered economically so many of worried about food the restrictions especially at a time when the number of cases of relatively you know and also at
1:12 pm
a time when tourists are being allowed in while the residents are being pushed under more restrictions elizabeth i would guess that this is going to put an even greater pressure of course on the health teams that are trying to scale up the testing according to the government plans but are still trying to deal with the fact that as you say parts of the country have been reopening and parts are opening up to to resume as well. yes so the indian government is continuing to increase testing it's conducting about $300000.00 tests every day but at the same time though that seems like a very large number it's still one of the lowest per capita tests that's being conducted anywhere in the world and so many independent health experts will say that that 900000 mark that india is going to reach in the case is tomorrow that the room number is actually much higher than that and how various state governments are trying to deal with that by bringing
1:13 pm
a lot down restrictions back in in the worst affected areas so as well as she then go and even the media we have the major cities all full name maharashtra that's the worst affected state that's where the but. also. in karnataka so if those 2 have a combined population of 20000000 people they go into a strip club john with only essential services and out from today for 10 days they join a number of other areas around the country who are trying to break the chain of transmission as well as increasing testing and increasing facilities that might be needed we are hearing very little though from the national government about about these days we did hear from the interior minister they're very positive when they do talk about it we've heard from the interior minister on the weekend he said that the whole world is watching how india has successfully bashed 19 well it is that government's decision to impose that nation wide lockdown in nature one of the
1:14 pm
strictest in the world that did delay the rise in the number of cases which we are seeing now and which have been very much left to state governments to deal with that's elizabeth purana my own correspondent in bringing your sluices from new delhi elizabeth thank you very much. more than a quarter of the world's caricatured covert 19 cases are in the us the state of florida is particularly badly hit that used restrictions in may and it's just reopens disney world has more. a new tragic record the largest number of coronavirus cases diagnosed in a single day in a single state of florida more than 15000 confirmed cases and the death toll is rising this is a state that was one of the 1st to reopen its economy and its republican governor was defiant at 1st a lot of people in your profession who wax poetic leap for weeks and weeks about how florida was going to be just like new york wait 2 weeks florida is going to be
1:15 pm
met just like it only wait 2 weeks well hell we're 8 weeks away from that and it hasn't happened it took a few more weeks but it has happened and it's actually worse than it ever was in new york but unlike there the florida governor has not issued a state wide mandate to where mass. protests in one county tried to shoot down and over the weekend another protest. a restaurant offering free food to people who refused to cover their faces selfish for not wearing a mask i want to say to you then all the people calling the selfish you're the one who's trying to force me a medical procedure so that you can feel more safe on the risks are very very loud this is a virus that has a 99.6 percent recovery rate this is a virus that is very well contained this is a virus that the c.d.c. is removing epidemic status from none of that is true and wearing a mask is not
1:16 pm
a medical procedure still it has become a political statement for many in the u.s. the entire reason for the shutdown was so hospitals like the one behind me do not become overwhelmed when the states that are seeing the biggest increases like florida arizona texas the hospitals are close to capacity and given what we know about how this virus spreads it is likely that that is going to continue stretching the hospitals beyond capacity. the president spent much of the weekend golfing but officials in his administration made clear they are gearing up for a fight against the lead infectious disease expert in the government dr anthony fauci i respect dr a lot but dr fox he is not 100 percent right and he also doesn't necessarily he admits that have the whole national interest in mind he looks at it from a very narrow public health point of view the questions now about whether the man who has led every national health emergency under 6 presidents will be fired by president trump in the midst of

1:26 pm
policy chief has a barrel arrived in brussels and said that really the main focus of discussions today among eve foreign ministers will be turkey and the e.u.'s relationship with turkey that's really up for question because there is a sense among some member states that this relationship perhaps needs to be reassessed because some of turkey's actions are simply incompatible they say with some evaluation i'm talking about turkey's actions in libya in syria its decision recently to turn the museum back into a mosque for example and then in june france france accused turkey of using a turkish was warship to be aggressive against a french naval vessel that was taking part in a nato operation in the mediterranean securing the coast of libya that fraud said that turkey's actions were simply out of line out of step if you like and we even
1:27 pm
had the french president accusing turkey of criminal responsibility in libya so even member states e.u. foreign ministers are gathering today to talk about whether or not the relationship with turkey should be reassessed whether more touch sanctions should be imposed on turkey there are already sanctions from the e.u. on ankara over an oil drilling dispute in the eastern mediterranean some eve foreign ministers want more sanctions to be imposed other eve foreign ministers are saying that maybe even negotiations over turkey's accession to the e.u. should be suspended indefinitely given the fact that there are so many countries who are being represented and are on opposite sides and many conflicts around the world what kind of result if anything are we likely to see from this. it's always very difficult with any discussions within the e.u. because there has to be unanimous new unanimity to come to any decision so all the
1:28 pm
member states would have to agree for example on imposing sanctions for france is certainly been pushing very hard for this as i said there was that dispute in the mediterranean with this turkish warship and this french naval vessel intentions of really fled between paris and ankara recently the relationship has certainly soured but what we know is that the e.u. foreign policy chief was on a visit to ankara recently and he has said look the relationship between the probably been you know hasn't been lower for some for some point but what all sides need to do is try and work to build a better relationship i think what we're going to see is yes that burrell a try perhaps to send the message that sickie there's some of its actions are incompatible with values but perhaps a dry and build bridges with ankara because he says that after all it would be better to have turkey on side as a partner. reporting for us from paris thanks very much indeed libya's national oil corporations accusing the united arab emirates of pushing
