government to step in our correspondent charlotte dubiously has more. on the frontline of this war against kuwait 19 are health workers doctors nurses all putting themselves in danger to care for those most in need but they too are being infected at this hospital in the narrow one doctor describes what it was like being treated the coronavirus. it's been a very hard experience very educational drama for me was to have full knowledge of the risk of being connected to the tubes because i perfectly understood the events happening since the outbreak last year more than 3000 health workers across the world have been infected with the disease at least 100 have lost their lives we believe that the lack of p.p. and the problems of supply is undoubtedly linked to the high infection raged and
4:03 am
some of the deaths we have seen as well the world health organization has warned that there has been an alarming failure in the global supply of protective clothing match that to the and the president it workload linked to global stuff shortages and this the who says highlights just how vulnerable health workers oh yet despite this medical staff are still working without proper protection in the u.k. this nurse quit her job after being told that she couldn't wear a mask up on arriving to work while still wearing a mask you asked me for a birth in your office you outlined to me that wearing a mask wasn't following the truss policy and asked me to remove it out here to the request later that day wells taking blood from one of our patients they accidentally coughed in my face i told you what had just happened however uniformly
4:04 am
i will still unable to wear my mask the problems are not confined to one. one country lack of medical kit just being almost universal some stuff of even taking to making their own improvised mosques from things like snorkels or using school science googles all in a bid to protect themselves worried workers fearing for their lives have taken to the streets in protest. protective clothing beat up face masks goggles is the very least medical workers expect and should have access to these are the men and the women carrying out their duties in an unprecedented medical emergency we can cut for them every night we can offer them discounts in shops and though all of this is well meant what they really
4:05 am
need to have is access to the basic equipment to help keep them safe but really what it is with you the problem of a lack of protective individual gear is also a problem on the institutional level and this is something that was caused by the tsunami of cases which hit us which overwhelmed things when we found ourselves in a state of war with insufficient weaponry and in particular with a reduced number of masks after a while these masks are becoming available now alternatively instead of a surgical mask the population could wear a scarf or something to reduce the emission of droplets surely there would be a less efficient alternative to a surgical mask but it's useable it should motivate us to continue with this social distancing. euro zone finance ministers will resume talks on thursday aimed at agreeing a stimulus plan earlier this week they failed to strike a deal after 16 hours of discussion italy france and spain are the 3 e.u.
4:06 am
countries worst hit by. pandemic and they're pushing for a stimulus based on joint e.u. debt nicknamed corona bombs other countries have resisted the idea saying that each country should be responsible for its own debt those include germany austria and the netherlands spain says the bloc needs to look at the core principles underlining the european union. we need the help of other countries and that's why the european community was originally formed at the time after a physical war now we are fighting a war against an epidemic. a financial consultant damian wilson believes italy and spain have good reason to be frustrated by the lack of support so far from the e.u. . inherently most nations are selfish they are run by politicians who expect are expected by the people they govern to look after them 1st and put their interests 1st we don't see this happen very often i mean something like a sporting tournament you might see it. when nationalism china maybe you know.
4:07 am
their emotions but i think that in a situation like this which we've never experienced before and so understandable it's unfortunate but it's understandable the crisis managers in the european commission that need to be the other member states haven't done as much for italy as they should have at the start and this is a point when he was announcing more relief for a country like romania i think the italians will take that very very badly in italy where even they have the north and south divide where they have one strategy moving in the in the north where the epidemic 1st 1st materialized and that was well underway before that even in the south i think that they will be asking some big questions of the european union about what what happened and where were they when they needed and i think the same in spain they will also be asking questions these are countries that have had a combined total of nearly 32000 people die since the pandemic and that's
4:08 am
a lot of citizens to be losing particularly when you feel you should be having help coming to you from brussels. i could or is now one of the worst hit countries in south america officially only $242.00 people have died of coronavirus there but testing is still limited and the president's admitted the actual figure is much higher with hundreds dying at their homes on a daily basis and in many cases relatives have nowhere to bury their loved ones. yeah i was god i came here to look for my dead relative with all the papers i can't find the body one day she days 3 days 4 days 5 days and they call find it.
4:09 am
i get this i'm sleeping here outside the building i have fever i'm taking paracetamol my bones hurt and all that because i want to bury my mother in law and . i. have. taken the good and. they believe they did good donating those things but they are worthless and worthless because they. when our relatives bodies they can't belong in the congo coffin. they get when. they go one cardboard gets wet what happens it does integrate doesn't it imagine transporting the course and it starts
4:10 am
raining it will just integrate. the hospitals across ecuador on able to cope with the influx of covert 900 patients many have been refused treatment and subsequently died we spoke to a doctor in ecuador you asked to remain anonymous he said that dozens of medics have also died. this year. we see shortages in all pharmacies both public and private hospitals where there are not enough beds no ventilation device is key to saving lives very unfortunately we also have to wait for one. patient a died to give another he's bad and breathing apparatuses more than 40 health workers have died in the pandemic doctors and nurses this is hidden from the public it is very important to understand that medical personnel cannot work in such conditions so for example on friday of course but only got your quilt had to be
4:11 am
closed there was simply no protective equipment the situation with the band again bodies will cause this viral pandemic to worsen due to diseases caused by the composition of corpses if i could contact the double the show or the pan american health organization i would ask them to intervene in ecuador and provide the assistance that the city of gori acquittal needs. we heard from iranian. official in ecuador province and can tell lucas former deputy foreign minister they both think i could always entirely unprepared for the pandemic. and. no one was ready for corona virus but the government should be able to respond to a possible outbreak of the disease that started as an epidemic then became a pandemic it is obvious that the public health system must respond unfortunately many of the hospitals built during the 10 years of the civil revolution were almost abandoned and many doctors and health workers were laid off therefore it turned out to be difficult to confront this kind of situation without hospitals and doctors
4:12 am
and in addition the presidential administration has demonstrated its inability to act the reality is that none of the measures that the government took were since the start government has acted in accordance with how it described development but it was lying reporting no deaths while on the streets leave the bodies of dozens of dead people obviously when a government lies to itself its response cannot be adequate no one of the thunder but it may. in fact the situation in ecuador is now disastrous one reason for this is that our health care system was almost destroyed destroyed key posts were assigned to people who did not have enough training to ensure the functioning of the system bodies on the streets no one removes no established procedure for the collection of bodies they invent some kind of proprietary protocol according to which you have to wait several hours before picking up the body but the citizens of ecuador did not deserve such
4:13 am
a careless negligent attitude on the part of the officials who now stand at the head of the ministry of health we observe a careless attitude on the part of the government which was created to protect the interests of those in power the financial elite. areas of the province of quietus where the wealthiest segments of the population live doctors come to patients houses while ordinary people called 911 in the hope that someone will answer them and explain something but no one will answer them people wait several days for them to do the test. and no one cares about them. united kingdom as one of the world's 'd fastest growing death tolls from covert 19 with more than 900 lives lost on wednesday brings the total there to 7000 and there are growing signs of panic with people reporting on neighbors seem to be breaking the rules on social distancing the skate park which has the story. the british are frown down on

telltales there's even an old nursery rhyme that graphically condemns those who inform on others tilt your tongue shall be slit and all the dogs in the town chill have a little bit but since the u.k. went into lockdown on march the 23rd fear of the coronavirus and frustration at others ignoring stay at home rules mean police stations are being inundated by snitches one senior policeman urged the public to stop it and instead choose a polite disapproval but other british police forces and all 4 of his around the world are taking advantage of this trend and encouraging their citizens to watch and reports hotlines have been established apps been developed and online forms published for denouncing rule breakers in the us what was once socially condemned is now officially remunerated you know the old expression about snitches well in this case snitches get rewards we want to thank you for turning folks in and making

sure we are all safe as anyone can transmit the disease everyone is under scrutiny in germany politicians have seen reported for not keeping enough distance while scotland's chief medical officer ended up losing her job dr catherine calderwood was caught visiting her 2nd homes twice in a fortnight contrary to her own official advice photos of her were leaked to the press and she resigned that there's already been a backlash to the rise in social censorship. is that and frank wouldn't have lasted a week with all the sneetches the thing they have the moral high ground for reporting on the neighbors activities. an absurd amount of people in this country are going to turn into 1st class snitches and when this ands they'll keep reporting their neighbors to the police this is obviously an undercurrent that goes into a company is there so i mean it's sort of positioned in framed as you are doing your civic duty you are protecting everybody but it has deeper ramifications than
4:16 am
that we must be very careful it is fear based absolutely people do have judgment about them about what other people are doing what's in your basket is that shopping essential why did you go out how long was your exercise how long were you on that bench for we have to be really careful sociologists claim snitching is based on fear or often surges in times of crisis and historically such as under the not says when all sorts is encouraged social spying it can bring out the worst in people libertarians argue that look down restrictions hit the poorest hardest and shaming risks inflaming social divisions at a time when unity is needed but the rule followers argue this situation is temporary and a small sacrifice for a much bigger picture this is a national emergency is not a national holiday it's important people understand that everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of the coronavirus this includes people of all ages even if
4:17 am
you do not have any symptoms of the health condition before the coronavirus struck the world was becoming more polarized economically and politically coded 19 is also having the global impact not only in loss of life and social disruption but in highlighting humanity's extremes arguably balancing these extremes to target a common viral enemy is the reasonable response and to prevent bitter social divide being the legacy of the coronavirus after its physical effects have been conquered hate partridge party love the. food is going to waste in rural america supplies the unable to sew goods because of . the story of those after the break.
4:18 am
with the coronavirus now with fish we've declared dependent make the world faces the additional burden of an oil market collapse this comes at a time when demand for crude was already some her calling this the ultimate perfect storm. is the skins. i don't trust medical authority at all ever and the reason for that is i had this horrible autoimmune disorder growing up and it turns out it was completely alleviated with very drastic dietary measures and i went to a number of doctors to discuss what happened to me and i was basically laughed at like diet has nothing to do with our immune disorders so my suggestion to people who have health issues they can't figure out if they're going to see a medical professional and they've been going for 10 years and they're still in the

states registered more than 1900 deaths from cove in 19 on wednesday that's the highest daily figure for any country since the start of the pandemic bringing the total to almost $15000.00 that's higher than spain with unemployment soaring millions are struggling to even put food on the table meanwhile in rural america produce is going to waste killing more than explains. sometimes we seem to live in parallel reality across the united states store shelves are empty and food banks are reporting long lines and a shortage of donations at the same time we have farmers across america dumping gallons and gallons of dairy products saying that they have no one to buy them. how is this even possible demand for milk and cheese and other dairy products is
4:21 am
high yet they are unable to sell them the pandemic is requiring self isolation bars and restaurants are closed as a result people are running to their local supermarkets and the shelves are quite empty most american farmers are wholesalers meaning they sell to retailers not directly to supermarkets and if you are a farmer who sells to a retailer that supplies restaurants they cannot buy anything so you have to rapidly reorient to selling to supermarkets the problem is the factories or processors who are using products specifically for the retail industry like restaurants for example those little tiny packs of butter that you may get in a restaurant but you can't just take that to the grocery store and sell it to the consumer it's not just melt meat and vegetables are in a similar situation producers do not have enough customers left and supermarket chains are unable to restock when they run out lots of food is going to waste in
4:22 am
addition tighter border controls are making it harder for producers to hire immigrant workers with harvest just around the corner this presents a big problem it could lead to fruits and crops rotting in the fields with no workforce to reap them many are wondering why all the food that's being thrown away due to market disruptions cannot just be provided to food banks if you. wanted to reorganize it to move the milk not according to the market where would be paid for but to give it to charity you would have to we organize the whole sale the storage the transport and that's precisely the kind of arranging that could only be done if it were flamed for in advance at this point it's haphazard we don't have train traffic as we normally do we do not have truck traffic as we normally did
4:23 am
there is no coordination the major effort of the government is to appear to be in control when it isn't it's a government that is focused on reelection and not on dealing with this problem it's really like the 930 s. the great depression. coming down into the united states economy. the crisis unfolding in the united states seems to be bad for everyone hungry people cannot get food from food banks consumers ready to buy food find empty shelves in stores meanwhile farmers have to dump their products because they are unable to sell it caleb martin r.t. new york. but the sun does has dropped out of the democratic race for the us presidency and it leaves the way open for joe biden to challenge donald trump america's chand and scotty no hughes talked to through the developments but let's
4:24 am
start with a vent of the morning bernie sanders suspending a campaign but he doesn't appear to be giving up his delegates why what happened. well i get your problem brownie monella because obviously trump versus the joe biden is going to be quite entertaining and exciting by the time we get to november now 1st it's we give you a heads up that bernie sanders is going to be speaking to his supporters and then his actual announcement you want to make sure that the fight for justice continues and this is why bernie sanders stated that he's going to remain on the ballots in all 50 states so he's going to keep those delegates making sure that they're still going to be counted at the d.n.c. whenever it is held later on this hour wow power play from bernie wow ok i didn't see that one coming so was bernie sanders suspending his campaign do you think that kind of came as a surprise to you or to much of america. well that was the thing you know yes and he was the front runner out of the gate it was
4:25 am
a bernie sanders any cause some fight as i remember i was the more establishment ring of the democratic party now where it was looking like we were going into a brokered convention and you know to the dead in good conscious keeping his campaign bernie sanders said it would actually interfere with the important work that was required at this hour of those in power so this is showing that this everything going on with 900 was having an effect and that the current iris did impact this decision how do you think this this calling it quits is being received by his obviously very very loyal grassroots supporters especially after we saw what happened with them back in 2016 where a lot of them just didn't show up for hillary. well and that i think this is deja vu for many of them because they've been through this before and a lot more worry based on what we found out about the 26000 campaign and how the d.n.c. it worked against bernie sanders then a lot of them are screaming haste foul again it's obvious that he did not want him to be the nomination and so are putting
4:26 am
a lot of blame on people like elizabeth warren for not endorsing bernie sanders or when she of drop out the biggest crowd right now is those saying you know what i'm done i'm going to form a 3rd party this gives us 4 years organize before 2024 or i'm just going to stay home to think of the democratic party does not want to happen because that's what happened in 2016 and we saw the results were donald trump was elected a large part because the burn center supporters did not get behind hillary but yeah obviously i think this kind of just backfired against the d.n.c. it's got to be so last night before we're out of time have we heard the biden can't say anything have we heard president trump say anything. well that is the big part right now biden automatically came out and said i want to bring you guys all in he said bernie and did something rare in politics he had to just run a campaign he started a movement one that is good for our future and for the end for the president and our nation in the future that big however president transfusing on the moment said this is just what the democrats in the 26 all of you bernie sanders say the
