just about for human life until fall apart come to a little bit of doubt here because like you think we bring you the latest developments from across the globe coronavirus pandemic special coverage on. the u.s. accuses china of bullying saying claims to the south china sea are completely unlawful. but i mean this is out 0 from our world headquarters and also coming up in the program mosques will soon become compulsory for english shoppers as coronavirus cases top 30000000 worldwide and countries not to give up the fight. too many
6:01 am
countries are headed in the wrong direction. the virus remains public enemy number one. anger at what they see as political bias protests in the democratic republic of congo on the appointment of a new electoral commission chief. we look at steps being taken to protect a british socialite in jail and a court appearance on sex trafficking charges. so then a strategic a stretch of water is a new source of tension between the united states and china your set your state might pump air says that beijing's claims to the south china sea are completely unlawful and it will not be allowed to treat it as its maritime empire it's rich in oil gas and fishing resources and china is building military bases on several
6:02 am
assholes but 5 southeast asian nations also claim parts of the sea and last week the u.s. navy held military exercises. so let's take a close look at china claims about 90 percent of the south china sea including ownership of the spratly islands which are disputed by the philippines by vietnam and by others this cooperation is claimed by china and the philippines and that battle began 8 years ago when the philippine navy apprehended 8 mainland chinese fishing vessels in the area and let's get more on this with katrina you who's standing by for us in beijing in katrina say i try to clearly not happy with what might compare to say. no not at all for china any issues of territory are a red line in the furious about this statement they've released their own statement from the chinese embassy in the us saying that the us is completely disregarding any efforts from china to maintain peace and stability in the region including by
6:03 am
engaging in negotiations and dialogues with various countries it says that the us is exaggerating the situation and deliberately sowing discord between china and its neighbors the statement then goes on to accuse the us itself of flexing its muscles in the region under that what it says is the pretext of freedom of navigation exercises and inciting confrontation now it's true that the freedom of navigation exercises by the u.s. has increased in recent months just last month we had 3 u.s. aircraft carriers circling the region and its rats have that many at one time and that was seen as a provocation by beijing but the u.s. said its hand was being forced because the chinese government have been ramping up its activity building these artificial islands have also been various run ins with malaysian vessels chinese boat swarming future which is a philippine island and recently also china named 2 regions in the spratly and the paracel islands as administrative regions calling them the. islands run through
6:04 am
there's been this going to do for months. trying to put in searches on u.s. politicians to experience. i think i think that will be inevitable if you look at the pattern there's been a tit for tat in various areas in that and this bilateral relationship appears to be in freefall just on monday china's foreign ministry spokesperson watching you said china was slapping sanctions on 4 u.s. officials including ted cruz and marco rubio who are senators and that was in response for the u.s. earlier putting sanctions on chinese officials including chen 20 war who is the number one official in province because of diligent human rights abuses there and change is a very important person in the chinese communist party is a member of the 25 strong pull it bureau and earlier and that we'd be us said it was also putting sanctions on any chinese officials involved in disrupting travel
6:05 am
to tibet for which china said it would also respond in kind so this is just another front on which the 2 sides are disagreeing adding to all lengthening a list of areas. from the south china sea true human rights abuses and should john hong kong's national security law or the media technology and trade really nic on the face of it seems that there are very little there is very little that these 2 countries agree on right now absolutely or i could you know leave there for the moment to katrina. but it's enough for gordon chang who's a china analyst based in the united states and he says that beijing is provoking tension in the region. i do believe we have a tipping point because the united states and indeed a lot of other countries are deciding that they are not going to ignore unacceptable behavior on beijing's part we have seen especially since february of this year china act in ways which are expression of a dangerous and it's pushing against india 6 south china sea and east china sea
6:06 am
nations the threats of invasion of taiwan the increased tempo of dangerous intercepts of the u.s. navy and the global commons so beijing is driving this now there's a lot of disagreement over why china is doing this but the point is china is doing this well the next step is really going to be up to china. i think that the issue is going to be driven in part by china's purchases under the phase one trade deal that was signed january 15th china has made it clear that it's not going to be meeting its schedule of purchase goods and services so that is part of the underlying tension but it's also you know china's geo political moves to try to grab territory and try to grab the global comments so i think this is largely in china's court because countries including the united states are really reacting to what beijing is doing. golden china now a warning from the world health organization that too many nations are heading in
6:07 am
the wrong direction as coronavirus cases top $13000000.00 director general tend to get reassess says there will be no return to the old normal in the foreseeable future california governor has just ordered indoor restaurants bars and movie theaters to close again for the 1st time since the start of the pandemic latin america has seen the number of code related deaths exceed those in north america and face coverings will become compulsory for shoppers in england from july the 24th well the u.s. accounts for more than a quarter of the world's coronavirus cases that's 3300000 recorded infections there's been a spike in cases in several states yet the trumpet ministration is continuing to push for schools to reopen i think i'll hate as this it's the latest fight for a president who is determined to keep america open schools should be up and this kids want to go to school you're losing a lot of lives by keeping things slow. he's warned states open schools or
6:08 am
lose federal money the answer from some states so far just know we're not going to use our children. as a litmus test and we're not going to going to put our children in a place where their health is endangered if that sample the 2 largest school systems in california will not reopen the travel ministration has been trying to convince parents it'll be safe but the world health organization disagree. our understanding of transmission in children is still limited and we know that overall they tend to have more mild disease but in some situations they can have severe disease and we have seen children that have died just like the schools the trump administration moved to reopen the economy quickly and the states that did are now seeing the virus seemingly spread out of control officials deny that there's a connection but the nation's top infectious disease expert disagrees all you
6:09 am
needed to do was look at the films on t.v. of people in some states who went from shutdown to complete throwing caution to the winds bars that were crowded people without masks and some states are reversing course california closing bars and indoor restaurants and in many places churches and gyms as well a sign that while some might want to see the country's economy reopen the virus has the final say. al jazeera america. well brazil's president says he's feeling well and will return to work if you test negative for coronavirus jaya both sonora was seen feeding birds outside his official residence where he's been quarantined since testing positive for covert 19 last week is due to be tested again on tuesday also now has repeatedly dismissed the dangers of the virus and supplant i mean began criticising containment measures ordered by state governments well ali monk
