reopening some of its airplane manufacturing plants bringing thousands of employees back to work in multiple states where stay at home mandates remain in place all right it's time to turn news i q. 19 continues to live up to its name of this global pandemic as confirmed cases worldwide top over 2000000 the latest count shows about 2400000 cases with about 168000 deaths and then taking a closer look at this nation the u.s. now reporting over 776000 confirmed cases and more than $40000.00 deaths now a total of $3800000.00 people were tested here in america 600000 of those are all in new york that's still the epicenter of this outbreak where hundreds continue to die. very thing all day but now there is growing pressure to reopen some parts of
3:02 am
the fate of trinity chavez has the report. 51 days after the 1st case of corona virus was reported in new york to date the state has nearly 250000 infections and more than 18000 people have died but today some good news the question for us is we are are we past the apex we have had a number of days that have seen a reduction the reduction is of course the board. but while the spread of the virus appears to be slowing down the daily death toll still horrifically high 478 deaths reported just yesterday the lowest number of deaths so far many hospital still full with kovan 1000 patients. everybody. oxygen hundreds of doctors and nurses now transferred into city hospitals to help
3:03 am
because of the lack of demand at the temporary hospital at the javits center then a wall fishel say the york is beyond its peak there is growing pressure to reopen the state we need to. be going to keep my family eating. so we have to take a rest governor cuomo saying before the state can ease restrictions testing of the coronavirus has to drastically increase but he needs the help of the federal government the national manufacturers will say well it's not that easy i can't get the chemicals the chemicals from to come from china i can't make the vials fast enough i can't make the swabs fast enough so i don't know what's right or what's wrong with that national supply chain question but that's where the federal government could help intense conflict between new york officials and president trump growing new york city mayor bill de blasio blasting the president over the weekend the president's been silent to present what's going on cat got your tongue
3:04 am
you're usually really talkative. you usually have an opinion on everything how on earth do you not have an opinion on aid to america's cities and states how on earth do you think that new york city which has been the epicenter of this crisis can get back on our feet without federal support this says a state rules out antibody testing to help determine how many new yorkers were infected with the disease starting today a sample of 3000 state residents will start receiving tests from the state department of health to detect the presence of antibodies produced by people infected with coded 19 but the u.s. government's top infectious disease expert dr anthony found she is urging caution a few countries have taken anybody tests and found out after buying millions of them that they actually don't work so i give it as a cabbie up because. we need to get a test that works and that's that's reproducible dr that even if there was
3:05 am
a test that works there are still so many 'd questions that need to be answered including whether having an entire body means that the person who was infected with coded 19 is immune to the virus reporting in new york city each of us are 2. u.s. navy sailor is in trouble with authorities now after he was caught on security cams leaving his room at a hotel in where he along with other sailors were on a precautionary 2 we quarantine after having potentially been exposed to cope at 19 aboard the u.s.s. theodore roosevelt and that sailor was returned to naval base qualms where he is now subject to disciplinary action by the military sailors and guam are currently required to stay in their rooms for 14 days as part of their orders by rear admiral stuart baker so for more on this growing threat on this tiny island i spoke earlier with dr thomas shea he is the president of the guam medical association and dr she
3:06 am
is also an o.b. g.y.n. and retired navy lieutenant commander here's some of what he had to say. i can tell you that the sailor will be disciplined this is not something i was taken seriously not seriously but i think i once took up and given the order to use fame place you violated order my bit you'll be undergoing chapman's mass or maybe even more as a court martial so hopefully that no more still it'll be trying to escape from the rooms but i think what we'll see what happens yeah i imagine they want to make an example of him so that way other sailors aren't going to try to do the same thing after getting bored being stuck in their rooms and dr b. you were the 1st andy on the island to reach out to the governor of guam to call for an immediate lockdown given that guam has such a tiny population of under 200000 around 12000 of those are u.s. military members how critical are no measure is there now to flatten the curve.
3:07 am
oh it's very critical i think across the country. but a fragile health care system here we have what we have what we luckily what we have here is a flat and i love our island pretty flat compared to new york city singapore which is charming with 3000 residents in 14 i think it's important to note that kwame just really quickly flat so i think over. that situation but i swore i asked the staff in the curve who have to think over the last few days we had 0 positives so that's a good sign but we're not going to get enough but again across the country we're not just big enough but right now i think we have about 136 positives who tested nearly. ok now as for the navy goes i think that just about 63000 nearly 4300 right now it's going up to 672 just positive so we're
3:08 am
testing and i think the key is to isolate going to nicely and the lockdown is happening but i think there are some. people bit in across the country as well. and given your experience and expertise and up to tricks how concerned are you about the spread of the virus among the pregnant women on the island and the risk that this virus can pose to the fetus or babies. i know that the china will haunt the school ameri but i think there's a few cases that they say that there is sort of a transmission transmission from the mother to the baby so i think time will tell time will tell 'd what's going to happen here certainly there's no universal testing that we have doing for the mother so i think right now what we still trying to do is trying to some way to cope in 1000. in the emergency room 'd and i.c.u. and also 'd in the urgent care yes i think we're doing a pretty good job as far as isolating it's just and goes and screening i mean right
3:09 am
now we don't really have any mom's per se that we have tested positive but again 1st of the transmission the deadest preliminary and we're going to see months down the role as what he forms and how do you predict the virus shaking out among the military population as a whole will the numbers match up to the civilian population or will they be higher will they be lower. or i expect. the number to be much 572 if you think about it a ship it's a tight quarters and a u.s. naval ship with 400-5000 sailors on board they have about 2.22.5 percent positive that's $672.00 so far and nearly $4000.00 tested negative know what your view of them were asymptomatic that these are healthy sailors so uncertain is that if you're asymptomatic there's a positive that has a concern and that's the date of this coming out of elsewhere in the state as well but the concern is far as the military in a community i don't think we're dead concerned because the military is doing
3:10 am
a very good job isolating it pointing them in hotels so we'll see what happens the next week or so because i think it's up to weeks now that the steelers have been pointing yeah absolutely the military can punish everybody for not following the rules unlike the civilians out here we will leave it right there thank you thank you so much for sharing your insight and expertise with beth dr thomas shea from guam thank you. while many around the country are protesting to get back to business as usual today one business actually is are to his fair project is joining us now with more on boeing employees heading back to work area i mean how is this even possible well middle we're actually talking 27000 employees going back to work in washington state which is actually the very 1st state to see the outbreak of covert 19 now this is the very 1st business on a large scale to get back to work but it's not going to be business as usual now during the weeks long shutdown boeing did go through and did
3:11 am
a deep cleaning at their facility near seattle but in light of the outbreak things aren't going to be as usual now boy will have employees come in and a staggered shift times there's going to be marks on the floor for that 6 foot social distancing workers are going to have to wear face masks and there will also be wellness checks every shift where you'll see voluntary temperature screenings now washington state is still under a stay at home order but boeing's assembly operations are considered essential business making them exempt now monday workers for the 737-747-7677 extension 77 planes they're going to be back at work with most of all of those 27000 employees returning to work on wednesday wow. but now boeing has had a lot going on obviously. in particular with those max jets and those 2 fatal crashes but everybody still remembers fresh in our minds and the planes are still grounded it's been over a year how could boeing bring back these employees when all these planes are
3:12 am
grounded and no one is traveling so how does that make any sense adding that to that. boeing customers who actually canceled their orders as well we're talking canceling $150.00 jets alone in march and just today company shares fell more than 3 percent after the china development bank financial leasing company they canceled their purchase of $29.00 boeing $737.00 max jets still though well. when did have an order to make 31 jets but those are for military aircraft and actually one is a freighter for 5 x. but then just in the past day you had a big order come in from germany with the country's defense minister confirming their decision of ordering 30 f.a. 18 super hornets and 15 growlers bell ok what about this coronavirus stimulus bill you had many on both sides of the aisle getting angry at boeing that they roughly got what $25000000000.00 or so despite their massive failures especially with those
3:13 am
max jets i mean they're getting bailout right but that bell out of $25000000000.00 though there are some strict conditions on that one namely that the money can only be used to continue paying their nearly 161000 employees all the way to september they can't have any job cuts or layoffs now when the bill was signed even president he recognized boeing's failures but said it was important to keep them afloat listen here. we have a great plan for the airline it's going to keep the early kill you know. it's a very vital business for the country we live in and they have been devoting. you know so much potential you talk about potential can anything have more potential than that. you know a major industry for the united states now middle of boeing c.e.o. says that as far as reopening and there are new safety measures in place the company is in uncharted territory intended and it could forever change the business and the industry because of this pandemic but that boeing is taking it day by day and hoping that it's going to come out strong and competitive now. fronsac thank
