a look at the missions and what lies the way the facts show today so let's dive right in. and while way is fighting for its corporate life in the u.k. as executives testified thursday before members of parliament among the questions that were asked of while way is how can the u.k. trust that while ways build out of 5 g. technology won't compromise security here's some of that exchange. it's true or. it will. try. this creature. obviously there is no evidence to support your claim that we are all a. beautiful. country and that you attract. absolutely possible our holiday has the. beating in that
range in entire property in a fire area so the technology. and science are a path and intellectual. property fast to see how to get up and go we have the country's best and interesting knowledge in our hearts. but without question there are massive concerns over how the u.k. government perceives not only walk away as a telecom company but whether while way is working with the chinese government joining us now to discuss the record which board member with the british american business is. co-host an investigative journalist been swan thank you both for being here hilary i want to start with you. seem to be angry during much of the questioning and most of it is centered around the belief that the chinese firm is independent of beijing's employ influence and they say that simply is not
a credible statement do you believe that is true that they are independent of beijing well i think you know you have to do brant actually is to look at the testimony when you saw the jeremy thompson that he was actually basically a sort of interrogated by 20 minutes for the british by the british m.p.'s and he's the vice chair in the u.k. for a while way it was very interesting when they are him you know do you believe that you have independent views and you can have your own independent views and he said yes absolutely or was to that effect then when greg clarke the chairman of the science and technology committee pressed him at all asked him actually a question that wasn't to do with why wait directly nor their policies when great asked him well what do you think of the security measures in hong kong you could visually see that jeremy thompson squandered visually as the camera panned quickly back to him he also somewhat reddened in the face and his reaction was actually
really all that we need to look at and that was his reaction was that basically he's been in telecom his entire life and he doesn't think that he should have a pine on issues all of the national security but really he actually was pressed the 2nd time by greg clarke and then he was asked will you give an opinion and he said that he could not so we know right there that he's being pressured by the chinese government so that it's not about national 6. already that's about just an opinion what if the chinese government doesn't want the way executives to do something with their 5 g. network that is now far yes that does threaten national security that is a threat and they all you have it in jeremy thompson's response and they all say absolutely and i'll bet i actually want to play a piece of that interaction between the wall weighs a piece just to what hillary was actually speaking about on the national security law that's going to play that right now. what's your view of the new security when home. again.
i mean telecoms executive i worked in telecoms all my life. my role is to enable. our customers with the carriers to provide communications faster and cheaper. to have a view community as opposed to you are free to as you go said to express your views and he. isn't in the mood but you do have a need for you. something that is quote to mean to you commercial into the prospects of the movie. but you can buy to meet you. as a representative war way. representing what way what we do is not to get involved in. the rules of different countries and not like ben obviously hillary is making this point about this that that is is indicative of
why waste position being adhered to beijing but what do you think of that was that a fair line of questioning was a response to hillary yes so i actually have a different point of view on it i don't think it's a fair line of questioning that tell you why because i understand the context of what's being asked here but simultaneously it's a political question being asked of an employee of a company and so you could flip it here in the united states and say for instance any come to. right now in the united states where an executive was in front of congress and they were asked questions about the black lives matter movement and they said we want to ask you your beliefs about this that executives would be very cautious about saying anything that they personally believe that might represent the company and so the idea that it was simply because he wouldn't answer no it did not look good for him to not be able to answer the question but i think you have to look at it in fairness and say most executives don't want to answer questions about their personal beliefs especially when it's a politically charged question the question wasn't just a simple question about you know what his general belief is about freedom the
question was about a very specific chinese law where while weight does have to operate within china and around the world but as i said if you flip that on the said and asked question about protests around the world you might find executives say in a very similar thing in squirming in a similar way because they wouldn't be sure how to answer that question it's a tough spot to be. actually going to want to transition to or do you have something to say to that you have a response now i think ben's right i mean most executives won't don't want to take a political stunt that's true but the difference is most american corporations and american executives that companies on by the chinese government and walk away can say all they want when it's not owned by the chinese government but in a communist society where they have one of the largest. companies in china they are influenced by and they have members of the communist party that run want way so that's a completely different situation that they're in bed i'm going to give you the final word i got about 30 more seconds on this what it was more response of it yes no i absolutely love it look i think there's a there's a there's definitely
a difference between a system like what we have in the united states versus what you would have in china and certainly it's very difficult for a while way to make the case that it's not being influenced by beijing but one of the bigger questions that surrounds us entire story is what will the fallout be as a result of this because yes well executives who are dealing with huawei are trying to say there is no evidence that we would actually damage u.k. national. curity by being here the u.k. is at the same time saying well we're just going to trust that what the united states is telling us is the right thing it's a tough position i think for everyone who's involved in it especially when it comes to ultimately the fall out because i think we can all agree on this there will be fall out from this for the u.k. for wall way for china and for the u.s. for everyone involved and we certainly want to get to all of that follow but alas we are out of time but it's want to have a record which thank you both for all of your time there.
one day after reports of the united states officially submitting documents to withdraw from the world health organization the un backed body and now it's an independent panel which will review the handling of the covert $900.00 pandemic the director general of the w.h.o. spoke about forming of the panel during a virtual meeting of the organization's $194.00 member states. the magnitude of these fundamental which has touched truly everyone in the world clearly be visitors commensurate even wish in. an honest evaluation. this is not a standard report that takes the books and is then put on a shelf to gather dust. this is something we take seriously. the panel will be led by former new zealand prime minister helen clark and former liberian president ellen johnson sirleaf so with that all in mind let's
go ahead and take a global look at the spread of the virus with r.t. correspondent saya tavenner. where are we worldwide right now branagan cases are surging global cases there's now more than 12200000 cases global that's more than 554000 look at have it over to the u.s. there's more than 3100000 cases and growing us that's at 130. 5000 now nationally cases grew by more than 20 percent compared to one week ago and grand cases were decreasing in only 2 states of ramana new hampshire in 14 states and territories the number of cases of those mostly the same in the rest of the country will new cases are on the rise now california and florida are among the 9 states that have hit a record breaking 7 day average for daily new cases california has now more than 26 percent higher new cases compared to a week ago florida there is

and dead just rewards 'd a young generation. charger for true. and welcome back pharmacy chain walgreens announced a deal wednesday that will put doctors offices inside their locations in more than 30 u.s. cities now walgreens is partnering with village m.d. which will steffen operate the clinics to support up to $700.00 locations last year the 2 companies teamed up to open 5 primary care clinics next to walgreens stores in the houston texas metro area of the pharmacy chain will invest $1000000000.00 in
equity in convertible debt in village mt over the next 3 years as part of the agreement walgreens will do so we're joined by host of the news with rick sanchez his name is rick sanchez and full disclosure here rick is also the founder of a managed health care company in south florida which is the fastest growing in the united states according to a magazine yeah i was always good to congratulate you on that one i know when i get up just a little bit about that my kids will eat. rick i think the most important question is how important is this what do you make of this move to have over 700 almost 700 locations of walgreens have actual p.c.p.'s inside them. i think it's a trend i think it's the future of how we will be seen by doctors i think it's the future of health care in the united states and let me tell you why it's probably a good thing because health care in the united states has forever been very fragmented. let me give you
a more rudimentary example of what i'm talking about most people don't know their doctors are right they really don't with the exception of people who are 65 and older and are on medicare and actually joining an association if you will a place where they have their medical needs taken care of most people don't know who their doctor is they don't know how much their bills are they don't know who pays their bills they don't know how they're insured it's really a very very bizarre situation and so what's happened in the last couple of years is a lot of the payers and by payers for those of you who don't understand it means the big insurance companies you know they humana in the united for the world they're the ones who are kind of gobbling up the providers provider is a fancy word that means your doctor so what what what's going on here is we need more doctors that are established that have established relationships with their patients in the united states right that's what for example the company that i'm
associated does and south florida they are p.c.p.'s right there the providers for people what's interesting here is that what they're doing is they're creating a relationship in these buildings all walgreens doing is saying you can use half of our actually one quarter of our building but it's going to be when you walk into walgreens you'll see the doctors on one side it's village m.d. on the side and the walgreens on the other and they'll be a lot of them all over the united states all things considered probably positive because the dea fragments what's going on in health care fragmenting point of the health care industry how important is it here especially in the united states things are very regional right yeah. so we're looking at this going to into 30 major u.s. cities and it's going to the same provider in village and d. so that way if i'm in washington d.c. where we are today i saw my p.c.p. i get all my test done hey maybe i'm in new york and i get sick i have to go i can go have to find a strange doctor that i'm not familiar with i can go to village m.d. and they can get all my records how important that exists that is such
a good question and such a good point because one of the problems today again going back to a rudimentary since your average 25 or 30 really old he had a broken ankle he got it fixed where there's x. rays he doesn't know he doesn't remember the name of the doctor or the place where he had it done he had lab work once he wants to check his lab work where is it don't know so we have to do more lab work we have to do more x. rays this is what's been happening in america for the longest time the other trend that this is going to quell is what you're talking about by the way is centralizing in writing. and it's the internet and right and we still have doctors some guy in mississippi and the other guy in new york and the other guy even just miles away that don't talk to each other don't get mad and you for those of us who know when you go into a doctor's office how do you do it they don't get your information they give you a form that you fill out to the best of your of ability and that makes it hard and here's the other thing that why this is great the you know healthcare is an unbelievable cost in the united states and our health care system compared to other
countries sucks so here's what i think is really cool that what we've seen in the past is not just the big payers those big companies controlling who takes care of your health because they get paid more and they control what kind of coverage you're going to get no you want to be able to shop it out you want to be independent you want to be able to get this insurance or that insurance so it fits your needs the other thing that this finally may do away with his hospitals controlling doctor care you don't want that you don't want people going to an emergency room every damn have a problem because that's a big bucket right you want people to have relationships with their doctors and. if we can create a system around the country where there are networks of doctors i trust the doctors more than i do the insurance companies so it's why i think this could be good and if we look at it on a on a business decision from the walgreens in village m d i mean you're in the managed care business you know about this i mean is this going to be a big winner for them not just on the social relationship with your doctor and just
being good for humanity but for their bottom line well sure i mean it's about scaling i mean business the business proposition here is i'm going to have clientele that's coming into my building my factory every single day aside from the people we already have so you already have the people are going to go buy a coke are gallon of milk and their medicines etc but now you're going to have a steady flow of people coming into the same building are going to be seen by doctors and then the doctor is going to say i'm going to give you a prescription or a script for this medication where do you think they're going to fill the script right next door so it's going to be a boom for the business of walgreens if they play it right and if they don't give away too much and for that matter they might be able to pick up whatever they need as you said whether it's a coke a loaf of bread some snacks and some cosmetics because that's just kind of the way it works or in our case what chocolate milk and some. of the news with rick sanchez rick sanchez himself thank you so much for breaking that down it was awesome. and
