5:01 pm
campaigning in the time of crisis the pandemic is reshaping this year's lead up to the us presidential election. the global death toll for the coronavirus is now hit 70000 with 50000 of those reported in europe it comes as britain's prime minister abbas johnson remains on the observation in hospital with continuing symptoms 10 days after testing positive for covert 19 a spokesman says he was at michoud as a precautionary measure and is still leading the government johnson tweeted from his hospital bed that he's having routine tests and is in good spirits on sunday evening queen elizabeth made a rare televised address to the nation she urged the british people to remain united and resolute to overcome the outbreak. numbers released from spain show the
5:02 pm
debut death toll is continuing to fall $637.00 people died there in the last 24 hours that's down nearly 40 from the previous day and japanese prime minister shinzo ave has begun steps towards declaring a state of emergency as infections surge across major cities we have 2 correspondents this white house correspondent kimberly help get to standing by in washington d.c. but let's go 1st to roll reach chalons who is in london for us so rory boris johnson is tweeting from his hospital bed what more can you tell us. yeah we've got pretty much the same message coming from both boris johnson as you say via twitter and his spokesperson who couple of hours ago briefed the media in the lobby of the houses of parliament and the message from boris johnson on twitter is last night on the advice of my doctor i went into hospital for some routine tests as i'm still experiencing coronavirus symptoms i mean good spirits and
5:03 pm
keeping in touch with my team as we work together to fight this virus and keep everyone safe and he went on to thank the brilliant n.h.s. staff as he put it taking care of him and all others in this difficult time the message from his spokesperson a bit more expansive than that saying that yes the prime minister did still have a cough and a fever this been going on for 10 days or so that was why he was admitted to hospital for the routine tests they put it's going to a bit more about how he is still performing his functions as prime minister he said he was still receiving his box of work there any decisions that needed his attention would get them that he still led the government but that he was handing over for the interim. the chairmanship of the coronavirus emergency meeting that happens every day to dominic rob the foreign secretary there are big questions though. is that boris johnson's health in significant risk
5:04 pm
the spokes person was asked in the in this briefing does the prime minister have signs of pneumonia and the question wasn't really given a proper answer the answer that they got was well he has symptoms that are persistent consistent with persistent coronavirus 19 another question that doesn't have an adequate answer yet is just how if he's actually in the hospital getting all these tests and being given treatments and essentially doing what doctors would tell anyone to do in such circumstances getting some rest how in those circumstances can he still be leading the government being prime minister we don't actually have the right answer to that yet. thank you for that update from outside the hospital where bostonians being treated for intelligence. u.s. president donald trump has struck an optimistic tone of his daily coronavirus briefings saying an end to the outbreak is in sight but with
5:05 pm
a number of deaths in the u.s. approaching 10000 health experts are warning the worst is yet to come can we hope that joins us now live from washington d.c. so some mixed messages there just give us the latest. yeah there's no question that the administration whether it's the public health officials or the president himself seem to be speaking from different song sheets when it comes to the message to the public at issue right now is a lot of confusion over the messaging coming from the president and even is one of his top economic advisers trade representative peter navarro both have been touting the benefits of potentially trying an anti-malarial drug to treat kovac 19 even though they haven't gone through the proper trials yet in terms of their effect of this and the question becomes whether or not it is appropriate for a president to be suggesting an unproven or untested drug even if there is legislation that gives americans the right to try. given the fact that he has no
5:06 pm
medical background so the president is getting a lot of pushback about that here in the united states he's also been getting a lot of pushback from a top democrat on capitol hill chuck schumer he is the top democrat in the u.s. senate for suggesting that in fact there should be a medical or rather a military person overseeing the distribution of whether it's medicine whether it's ventilators and that this should all be centrally located the u.s. president's push back on that saying that there is such a person in place but still calls for a so-called czar if you will to make sure that this is being properly dispatched it's growing ever louder in the united states committee at the same time public health officials have been sounding the alarm about the week ahead what are they saying. yeah well what we've seen from the president is kind of this optimistic note but at the same time the surgeon general has said that the
5:07 pm
week ahead and the weeks ahead expect them to be pretty bad now as you point out at the start of the show the numbers 338000 cases or infections here in the united states of chronic virus were approaching 10000 deaths now in the united states and the feeling is is that the picture is not complete because testing has been sporadic and spotty across the board and then there are many people who are perhaps showing only mild symptoms who are not getting tested at all so the feeling is that in the united states the spread of corona virus is much larger and more vast than is being presented and also expect that these deaths are only going to continue to climb a but again the u.s. president has been surely not just in his latest task force briefing that took place on sunday night but also again on twitter early monday morning usa strong is his latest message but again many people arguing that the u.s. is not particularly strong when it comes to the coordination of resources thank you for that across developments in the u.s.
5:08 pm
complete that. as we've said there's some hope in spain with a number of deaths dropping for a 4th straight day lots of it it has the details from madrid. this is the lowest number since march 24th this means 2 weeks ago but we have to be a little bit cautious with these speakers as during the week and the reduced or it's a slower as process soon we need to more of figures to compare with these slow don't trend is 100 percent certain spanish prime minister better santa reported yesterday he's slamming apart from approving these 15 day extensions in the congress passing this approval of these until april 25 they're also thinking in a for a future plan whether to be more toughening or easing the measures because that will be an extension kind of descent so they need to plan what they're going to do next one of the things we know is that he's asking the 17 regions in spain to provide at least of private and public infrastructures you know order to isolate
5:09 pm
a symptom and seem to matic coronavirus patients china a few days a few months ago with these project called north ark and in a way to to stop the spread of the pandemic these work very well in china but we don't know whether in spain is going to work because despite the health ministry has distributed $1000000.00 test kits we don't have enough so we need to have more and more supply of test kits in spain in order to to it be to be snores arc project be effective. germany has confirmed more than 100000 cases but so far it's managed to avoid fatal if he's on the scale of some of it's here pay neighbors all spittles in several german regions are even treating patients from italy and france and the german government is proposing a plan to provide financial support to struggling european financial states at the level it is dumb it came reports from berlin it may not go as far as some countries
5:10 pm
want a man ministers senior ministers are making a financial off to european countries of assistance that is saying that the european stability mechanism a mechanism that's been in place for much of the last decade should be applied so that countries such as spain and italy can immediately draw down funds to help them to fight corona to fight the problem that they're facing and it's many millions of euros we're talking about here something in the region of about 70000000000 almost immediately in these countries could double down but they are in the form of loans not in the form of grants that's the sort of thing that these governments are really crying out for some sort of new marshall plan for european countries in other words the sort of scheme that was will stand by the victorious allies after world war 2 to help countries that are in terrible distress economically that's not what the germans are offering right now and that they have a lot further than they had previously been prepared to do the democratic republic
5:11 pm
