11:05 am
mentioned there are these protests they were 1st sparked by the pandemic measures but now it's about so much more than that is these anti-government rallies really so what do they want. there were in serbia you know all the last 2 years brought this suit against the government but now they are without political leader so forceful position or at the end they even them to want them they say that is the nation will once the government and president to resign because they are feeling under pressure and they don't have. any chance to make a choice in their own and this brought this didn't happen only in belgrade but the last 2 nights they spread out in the city of the nation of assad and in other places they tried to do to say that they don't want anymore out there pratik their leadership so they want the government gone essentially now there's been

a decision not to impose a weekend curfew in the capital when it relates the coronavirus pandemic and and just out of curiosity is that likely to appease at least some of the protesters perhaps i don't think so they announced another protest to night from 6 o'clock in the they will be there probably even the various decision that not more than 10 people can gather in public space but they are going to be there because they don't want to stop this practice against a precedent and they even tried to send a message last night by cleaning the place after they you know left around 1 o'clock after midnight that's quite polite as far as protests go journalists in just a very joining us with the view from belgrade thank you so much and now let's get an update on the latest developments in the coronavirus pandemic the united states
11:07 am
has set another record for than 65000 new cases were recorded on thursday the u.s. has most infections of any country. hong kong is to choose all of its schools the site close excuse me all of its schools because of the spike in locally transmitted cases the world health organization is setting up an independent panel to review its handling of the pandemic and bolivia's interim president xi don imus has tested positive for covert 90 brazil's leaders i have all said i know also announced a positive result earlier in the week. all the drug crime disappear is among the 1st is shown to be effective against covert 19 but it could cause an international rao over the us buying up most of the world stock european policymakers are considering compulsory licensing of the drug which would lead to production here in europe we'll hear from a lawmaker proposing that just a moment 1st this report. from disappear is no wonder drug but it
11:08 am
has shown promising effects in the treatment of people who fall in severely ill with covert 19 originally developed to treat a boat it's attracted interest from countries around the world. last week the european commission gave conditional approval for rem disappear to be used to treat seriously ill covert 900 patients it follows similar moves in india japan and the united states. the company that makes the drugs get an american firm that has faced criticism for agreeing to sell the vast majority of its output to the united states get told d.w. that its face difficulty meeting demand and that it's planning to increase the production of ramdass of beer from the current 190000 boxes per month to $2000000.00. future supplies the company says will be allocated on the basis of the number of new infections in a country. european policy makers have also been threatening to impose compulsory
11:09 am
licensing on severe this would allow other manufacturers to produce the drug. when the world trade organization rules such a move would be possible in the case of a national emergency and for more on this let's bring in european parliamentarian peter at least who is threatening to introduce compulsory licensing of the covert 1000 treatment meaning it would be produced by others against the will of kelly i'd welcome to the program and thank you so much for joining us why are you taking such a big step and gilliatt insists that they will deliver the job. yeah they will do it well but i'm not sure if it is not you know for the moment in the united in the european union the figures are quite you know but we don't know what's going to happen and work while we have really a lot of hospitals where the outbreaks are huge and that's why i'm not sure if what
11:10 am
this is going to deliver will be enough and we just adopted the resolution in the european parliament where we say that we call on cooperation and die in the uk so i would guess preferred to be gods themselves words cooperate with companies . outside of us to produce the drug but if not the international law for cease relicensing so it's not something that invents it is for. you know the most is into a food and i think we are in an emergency situation is is this a taste of what we might see when a coronavirus vaccine becomes available. unfortunately yes. we we will probably not have not enough doses of vaccine. when the vaccine is approved so we are speeding up all the measures that unless necessary
11:11 am
today also in the european parliament we have proof for. new regulation on clinical trials that this technological vaccines carry produced easy. and large scale but we will have a problem and we don't know where the 1st vaccine will be developed if it is united states china europe or wherever and if it's not enough for the hooks we need to make a bed that we have also the option to share an audience and to group produce it in as many places as possible because we cannot afford that about free will exists but we don't use all of the possibilities to produce it at last so then take us through that potential scenario sam vaccine is found in europe do you then support compulsory licensing so that it can also be issued in other countries
11:12 am
now i'm sure that would not be necessary because we were clear from the beginning you're not with us on the line maybe it's because friends let in conference europe wants to share everything with the rest of the world so i think europe will be ready to share the vaccine and the knowledge of produce the vaccine with or across companies that they're developing vaccine must be reborn or best but they need to share knowledge the problem is when it occurs in china or united states. european parliamentarian and c.d.u. politician peter lisa thank you so much for joining us with that view hugh let's get a quick check now some other stories making news around the world the u.s. supreme court has ruled that prosecutors can seek access to president donald trump's tax records trump had tried to claim immunity from criminal investigations
