of be hot on thursday it's not only india 2nd most populous with a population of nearly 130000000 people but it's also one of the most impoverished with the worst public health care in the country it's also conduct. and one of the no was to the level of tests less than a 10th of the number of tests that are conducted in the government there feels that they need to impose this lockdown for 2 weeks to try to break the chain of transmission there and there was criticism of elsewhere in the country that there's no information from the government about how they are actually using this time there's only been repatriation flights allowed into india for the last few months there's been no international commercial flights since march and that's actually been a bone of contention especially by the u.s. government which said that it's against international aviation rules for india to
have this kind of monopoly because only indian airlines were operating these flights so the indian government has now made these deals with the u.s. and with france then negotiating with germany and the u.k. they say that this is the next step after repatriation and before going back. you know allowing international commercial flights so they are going ahead continuing with their reopening despite the rise in cases that we're seeing in the country they continuing with trying to reopen internationally. your leaders are meeting in brussels for the 1st time in moments to negotiate a plan for economic recovery from covert 90. $860000000000.00 package is aimed at pulling the european union what could be its deepest ever recession the blocks for biggest economies germany france italy and spain back the proposal but others don't told sauced month ended in deadlock. we are at the beginning of the summit now
and the stakes couldn't be higher because if we do it right we can overcome this crisis stronger and emerge stronger from the crisis all the necessary pieces are on the table and a solution is possible and the solution that is what our people in europe expect from us because it's their jobs that are at stake and the risk of the virus still persists and the whole world is watching us. infections in the u.s. have hit another record of 70000 cases in just 24 hours that's the highest recorded by a single country despite that one governor is trying to block the attempt to stop the virus spreading own fish has more. dramatic u. turns across the country as many states which had rejected the idea of telling people to wear face masks or seeing cases so that everyone can adopt the practice of wearing a face mask for the next 4 weeks we will be able to get cobra 19 out of control.
but in georgia the governor there is going to court to ban cities and municipalities making masking in public compulsory camp says local orders can't be more restrictive than measures he's put in place his team only strongly are jews the wearing of masks the governor has taken a formal position on mass in the state of georgia so well whatever the motivation is i think that at the end of the day we all have to do the right thing because it's the right thing to do and what the scientists are telling us is that the right thing to do is to wear a mask mask are not a political statement mask our public health to a necessary public health to. the state of georgia can t. use to send mixed messages to everyone that lives here cases are no surging in
40 of the 50 states hospitals are being stretched to the limit we were previously see about one inch and or even one in 8 of our tests that we were doing in the community they were coming in back now we're seeing one and or so about 25 percent of all the tests that were doing which we've also ramped up but we're seeing more of those that are coming back which concerns us for increased transmission in the community the u.s. government centers for disease control recommends wearing a mask as do most medical professionals but it's only mandated in about half the states many retailers have their own policies no mask no service but that's what some angry reactions putting one customer drawing a gun in florida new york's governor andrew cuomo has enlisted one of the most trusted voices in america to get the message across like when you wear a mask you have more respect. because your mask doesn't protect you
it protects me morgan freeman appears on these public service announcements america to mask up but it's clear the issue has become political and in america in 2020 political means divisive but many governors are warning if things don't improve when you'd stay at home orders might not be far behind alan fischer al-jazeera there's growing pressure from donald trump said mr ation to reopen schools across the u.s. despite the record number of new infections there's been a public backlash since the president's education secretary 1st announced the guidance the white house says the consequences of not reopening far outweigh any risks to children. the science is on our side here i am we encouraged for localities and states to just simply follow the science open our schools it's very damaging to our children there's a lack of reporting of abuse are there is mental depressions that are not address
suicidal ideations that are not addressed when students are not in school our schools are extremely important they're essential and they must reopen. the world's 2nd biggest corona virus outbreak after the u.s. is in brazil where the number of cases has passed 2000000 hospitals in some areas are struggling to cope and there are concerns many infections are going on reported because of a lack of testing traceable reports. this is the old overhead of a public hospital in the city of campin yes in brazil just northwest of sao paulo video from the hospital shows there are no available i.c.u. beds left to treat covert 1000 patients the food it was recorded by a doctor who works at a facility but does not want his identity to be revealed health officials in the city have a knowledged the coronavirus has become a major public health threat as instead many days with 100 percent of i.c.u. bed occupation for around 10 days some people had to wait to get an i.c.u.
bait they could all get medical care but had to wait for a vacancy. even though the number of 1000 cases have started to decrease in brazil's main cities it is in smaller ones like i'm being asked where the number of coronavirus infections continue to rise outside the hospital people wait in line to be treated equally as one of them he's father he's receiving treatment for the disease. are kind to test the code because my father got the disease and he's actually need to care right now accompanied him to hospital and since i had flu symptoms of trying to get tested couldn't do it. brazil's president who tested positive for the virus remains in isolation he says he's being treated with hydroxy chloral queen despite some warning against using the drug by the world health organization. it's worked for me and many people many doctors say it works i'm not campaigning for this remedy even because it's cost is very low i mean
that's why i'm some people down for it others feel they're doing that for ideological reasons it seems but the fact is it's working also not always being criticized for his handling of the crisis cost by covert $19.00 he opposed lockdowns or referred to the disease early on as a little flu 2 health ministers resigned because of differences of opinion with the president now the ministries being run by an active duty military general sees a lot of us willow took office at least 25 members of the military have been appointed in his ministry human rights groups say they're concerned we have like 9 ministers a $1000000.00. 3000 people in your heart ministration is the biggest number. ever you can read an invite to clerk in the ministry of health she was challenging there's no way that we're not.

conflict shameka says the e.u. isn't doing enough to stop violations by countries like the united arab emirates or egypt. let's bring in more our to our son from turkey he is an associate professor at tufts university and was formerly with the ministry of defense thank you so much for your time sir do you think david schenker has a point is the e.u. failing to hold those countries supporting off start to account. yes absolutely because they have started operating really to stop reference in flux in libya in accordance with the un decision but some members of this for free ition like france and greece are totally supporting hafter that means they are a what took up the linkage between turkey and libya. they were not fair states not check a gyptian libyan border and also a transfer ruds mainly from syria moscow or dubai.
what are some of the other reasons why the e.u. is avoiding voicing criticism of say egypt or the u.a.e. rivals relationship so important. i think it's about sharing natural resources in mediterranean sea and also core processors you know libya is the gate of the overall african continent is you know more practical. so why do you. stop cold turkey or that system of government because when this of course needs to act as they have more to lose in eastern mediterranean and as your politics and also african policy. you mentioned france and greece there but we're thinking perhaps of of say if later also divisions within the e.u. over libya how is those divisions impacting their willingness to tackle the issue
of the arms embargo. actually we can do i axes in 3 different categories the ones who support jenny legitimate government the ones who support the one the ones who prove fraud or evolve and later but act to the period through the era. if we want one or more in the overall situation and later. jenny. glee our standing with them. well i think such kind of policies are jobs short term proper and that's what they believe in the long run i think there will be our bill debate for instance supporting liberal c. or illegitimately supporting. department the middle east or not so it turns legion 2 or 3 people in the middle east the military. thank you so much for
