kenya let's take a look. at radio. charging station. these are all now standard features in favor karim homes but many other households in the area still rely on kerosene lamps which are dangerous and on healthy. favor karim regenerates or electricity from solar panels she has a small home grid. she had the panels installed after seeing some on a neighbor's house when i think. it's a big change before we were paying $55.00 shillings a day for electricity we'd have power for a while and then it would be cut off the avoid but with a solar panel that's when we pay 55 shillings days on. end so we have enough light to get the children ready all morning it's on all the time. now we've got to.
8:52 pm
creamy and her husband are paying for the solar energy system in installments every month they use a mobile phone to transfer of the equivalent of 15 euros in 8 months it will be paid off. although more than 70 percent of kenyans have access to electricity and 70 rural areas like here and his job though only 40 percent. to close the gap a company called d.l. ice has set up stores around kenya that sells solar products for homes and small businesses. esther new york runs one of the stores she sells everything from lamps to t.v.'s and solar home systems. today one of her technicians is going to install a system on the outskirts of could jato. john as a local pastor he's decided to equip his new home with the solar energy system. and the technician explains how it works it can be installed in just a few hours. by contrast getting connected to the public grid can take months and
8:53 pm
in just 2 years we'll have the environmentally friendly system paid off. believe electricity. is 10 percent the rate. so this one. is the quickest to me of getting to the light it up to 30 is not permissible something. new. in the video i need from the front of the town sometimes we can miss it when my work not. the lights kenyan offices are located in nairobi co-founder ned toes and has come from the u.s. to discuss future strategies for africa the social entrepreneur is now focusing on helping people who have recently lost access to energy sources it is an injustice that you have 1300000000 people in the world who still burn kerosene for lighting
8:54 pm
when the light bulb was invented more than 100 years ago this doesn't make sense and we set a goal of getting 100000000 people off kerosene by 2020 and we've actually achieve that goal as january 2020. technologies like mobile banking have made it easy for d. like to establish itself in kenya it's the world's 2nd biggest market for solar energy after india. chosen and his colleagues are now hoping to expand into other markets in africa so we're seeing a real change in awareness in general in the public sector with governments around what distributed solar energy can do and how if we're going to provide universal energy access solar is going to be a critical part of that equation. favor careen the small solar grid means that she no longer has to buy electricity tokens on her children have enough like to see one they're drawing the clean energy source even power as a security light in her front yard it helps deter thieves that nice. in the

situation in italy's north could soon start heading south on thursday italy's search pos china as the country with the most coronavirus did a milestone month with grim images of army trucks transporting coffins from the worst hit region of lombardy as the death toll mounts those trying to help the living are struggling to cope. where working in a state of very high stress and tension psychological stress has gone through the roof unfortunately we can't contain the situation in mumbai. there's a high level of contagion and we're not even counting the dead anymore. and the lockdown means patients are having to fight for their lives without emotional support. your. greatest problem which is emerging these days i would say is that the patients can't be visited by their relatives and often die on the wrong.

9:12 pm
responding to these measures that are being forced upon them by their political leaders well i think that the reason for governor cuomo to introduce those new measures is that anything else that they tried has not worked so far and we have to say that and now we are seeing the numbers that the number of confirmed cases here in new york state are going up at a press taking pace so they need to do something about that and we have to say that the governor himself has been praised for his leadership and more and more people in new york city and new york state appeared to be staying at home when you just look at the pictures of times square on or over places debt seem to be deserted right now and only wonder how likely is it really will see other major u.s.
9:13 pm
cities forward the lead of new york city. well i think it's likely that we will see more states following us example and imposing introducing can you measure this governor cuomo told us today that he has been working with governor is in the region governor connecticut's delaware of new jersey to coordinate efforts to combat that pandemic however some governments are complaining they it's they need more helpful from the federal government that's the trump administration's response to slow and that what is needed right now is cold but to determine its response from the white house and that something as they say what they are still waiting for. a listener for a moment with the latest from washington tonight alexandra thank you well here's
