10:04 pm
but because just. yesterday with narrow alleyways leading to the site of the crash the military was then called in red to heavy equipment to try and catch access and . now nightfall rescue and relief efforts are still underway many people are trapped under the rubble. and most of the people who have been turning up in hospital with serious injuries emphatically other people who were on the ground at the time of that crash investigators obviously now will be looking out towards really happened in the final moments after that mayday signal but it appears that the plane was gliding which started engines i'd already gone and probably dodge one of the reasons but investigators really have to find their ears because they did indeed a tragedy does particular story is likely to remain for the next granted 38 hours
10:05 pm
because the rescue effort is going to be difficult it is nighttime it is ramadan and people will be working around the clock to anybody's botted under the rubble of those destroyed homes. the world health organization has raised the alarm about the current virus outbreak in south america the agency's executive director of health emergencies has also warned against turning to untested treatments. south america has become a new at the center for the disease we've seen many shows american countries with. increasing numbers of cases. and clearly there's a concern across many of those countries but certainly the most affected is that at this point. we also know. the government of brazil has approved
10:06 pm
the use of hydroxy chloroquine for broader use but we do point to the fact that our current clinical systematic review is carried out by a kind of american health organization and the current claim that clinical evidence does not support the widespread use of hydroxy chloroquine for the treatment of cope with 19 or brazil's coronavirus death toll has now passed 20000 after almost 1200 deaths were recorded in one day and health experts say the true figure could be much higher due to a lack of testing the number of confirmed infections is over 300000 making brazil the 3rd worst affected country after the u.s. and russia despite that president dire balsa narrow continues to press for reopening off the nation's economy let's bring in john home and he's joining us from mexico city to 1st discuss brazil and how all of this is going down over there . i think you summed up there in terms of that the
10:07 pm
president is asking for the economy to reopen that's what he wants he wants to get people back to work and he's wanted that really since this crisis began to hit coronavirus but state governments especially rio de janeiro and sao paolo a municipal governments in brazil are saying no we've got to keep this closed down we've got to have quarantine because otherwise our room hospital services are going to be completely overstretch and that has happened in parts of the country like this if man now it's in the amazon region of brazil which really was sort of overcome by all of this so there's a real tension there with the government with the president lawyer heads with the lower level of authority and with other thinkers in his own government this is a president that's lost 2 of his and 2 of his health ministers over the last few weeks since this crisis began in brazil so this is a country that seen crisis is the worst hit of all of the countries in latin america and that sort of dislocation of powers and pulling in different cities
10:08 pm
directions isn't helping it and john as w.h.o. said latin america is the new epicenter so what is the situation like in the rest of the region. well where we are now in mexico the situation is getting worse in terms of that there's still daily record number of cases and this was despite the fact that the government had said that in the 2nd week of may if everyone stayed in their houses that this were peak and then we'd start see a decline there and that's a bit worrying for mexico because from the 1st of june it's going to start a gradual reopening of the country i thought that it did get past the peak but we've yet to see if that's going to happen it's going to be fairly close to the peak even if they do do that when we go further south the country of peru at the moment we're looking at a lot and that's because in the last 2 weeks the number of cases has doubled there and that's despite the fact that peru had quite an early look down quite
10:09 pm
a sort of therm aggressive lockdown the government really went hard to try and deal with this but what health experts there are saying is that that was ignored by a lot of people that a lot of people keep going out in the street it's a country where 70 percent of people live hand to mouth and so people were going out and it's now facing its own sort of coronavirus crisis in that country the country of ecuador as well for some time now has been a sort of a center of worry about coronavirus especially the city of wire kill when seeing in weeks past images reports coming out of bodies being kept in houses because they haven't or sometimes even in the streets because they haven't been able to have space made for them in morgues so that's another country that's trying to deal with this on the other end of the spectrum is costa rica and that's a country that's dealt with this so well that they've managed to open up their football league again the only country in latin america that's managed to reopen up
10:10 pm
the football league all right john home and thank you for that update from mexico. now the international rescue committee is warning that a lack of testing in countries affected by conflict is jeopardizing global efforts to contain covert 19 it's data highlights the danger of undetected and uncontrolled outbreaks in countries like yemen which is only done $31.00 tests per 1000000 people northeast syria at a rate of $59.00 per 1000000 in comparison germany has carried out more than $42000.00 tests per 1000000 war torn states also have the highest covert test positivity suggesting a far larger but undetected level of people have in fact been infected in somalia 45 percent of those tested came back positive for the virus in afghanistan the figure stands at 30 point one percent but in germany only 6 percent of the tests have come back positive while the united nations says yemen's health system has essentially collapsed so the country's reported about $200.00 cases of cope with
10:11 pm

10:12 pm
a rise in the number of patients but they have little to offer them yemen is particularly vulnerable to the strain of the virus poverty and water shortages have left the war torn country highly susceptible to disease and money is running out we are heading towards a fiscal cliff if we do not get the money coming in the programs that are keeping people alive and very much essential to fight back and gets cold it will have to close and then have to witness what happened in a country without a functional health system that can cope with 98 agencies say infections are likely underreported because of scar's testing limited resources and government secrecy and calls to stop the fighting amid the pandemic have been ignored they've even more people at risk was forced out of their homes by armed men conflict file and this is the dominant dicked on international diplomacy in their lives why humans of

10:18 pm
he'll override any governors who don't allow it's let's bring in chris the salumi is joining us from long beach over new york with a question is whether he has the author already to do so chris that. yeah it's really not clear but he is promising to override governors who don't listen to his order to reopen churches here in new york the governor has already said there can be worship ceremonies of 10 people or less he's encouraging churches to have parking lot services and things outside to maintain safe social distancing in order to be able to do that. but there's a lot of questions about how this is going to be implemented i'm in long beach new york right now which is just outside of new york city and they are still officially under lockdown here they have not begun official reopening but the beaches are reopening here and in other places throughout the state and the northeast and we're
10:19 pm
going to talk to a member of the new york state assembly about this todd kaminsky. can you talk about efforts to reopen the beach are you confident that it's safe to do that here given it's still a hot spot where we've seen more cases than anywhere else in in the country new york city that is in the greater new york area show a welcome to long beach you know that the beaches here are the lifeblood of our economy they're part of right then to the i grew up in this community so we're really happy to be having them open albeit at 50 percent capacity so tomorrow morning when these beaches officially open it'll be act one scene one of a brand new play where there's never been a dress rehearsal i have confident confidence in the officials here to be able to regulate this and figure out how to do this the town here and the surrounding beaches frankly a long island have said that they're limited to residents of these areas only because when the city announced that they won't be opening there was a fear that it's really hard to keep a safe and healthy beaches 50 percent capacity with tens of thousands of people
10:20 pm
coming out from the city so we're going to try this on a local basis tomorrow see how we could do social distancing at 50 percent to be honest with you the weather looks crummy for tomorrow so it's really an issue. for sunday and monday but i have confidence we could do this i think people will bring their mass will act responsibly and hopefully as the virus receives more and more and people do their part to have that happen we can have less restrictions on the beach but just to have the beach at this time just have this boardwalk here in the background is just a wonderful thing people are jubilant as this open yesterday coming on the boardwalk for the 1st time in a few months it's a sign of hope and hopefully we'll be able to handle it this week and yeah you talked about new york city not officially opening its speeches do you think people know the difference between what's happening in new york city and what's happening here you know do you have to wear a mask here are people going to know that i mean given there's been so much so many different rules for different jurisdictions how is that going to are you concerned
10:21 pm
sure well for the you know new yorkers should know by now you should bring your mask everywhere you go you don't know where you're going to be encountering somebody and even on the beach if you're able to be 60 from someone else you may have to go to the bathroom walk to an entrance or an exit go down by the water where maybe a little more crowded so you have to bring your mask with you wear it when it's necessary and you know at this point we should all be comfortable doing this or as comfortable as a is going to be and you know the city is kind of made for the refinement on the rules they said you could come sit on their beaches walk on the beaches that's what most people can do anyway so. you know i think there will be city people go into the city the state beaches out here in long island jones beach is the most famous will be open for everyone the local beaches here will be for the residents around here and then we'll have to see if these restrictions can be loosened up and hopefully this weekend will be a good test of how well we could do and you know continue to have more access to things as the virus recede yeah certainly i know a lot of people looking forward to getting outside this weekend should the weather
10:22 pm
cooperate one thing about new york city that i should tell our viewers one of the reasons that the mayor there has been so resistant to opening up the beaches for swimming with lifeguards and so on as the senator said people can walk there. is that people in the city are so reliant on public transportation and that's one thing that they're concerned about in a city of 8 and a half 1000000 people flooding the subway system in the buses to get to the beach to get some relief from this 2 months of lockdown that they've been seeing they're really worried that would be just too much so they are promising to take it slow but a lot of pressure for the mayor to reopen the beaches they are as there is pressure all over the country to start getting things back to normal but also fear about doing so safely. allouni thank you thank you for that update. now hong kong's chief executive kerry says her governments will work with beijing to introduce a new national security law as soon as possible so the proposal to ban treason

debated by members of china's national people's congress that's the parliament which meets once a year in beijing and it seems this new law could take effect as early as august there were protests in hong kong on friday as well as skirmishes inside the legislative assembly now currently social distancing rules mean that people can't gather in the streets in groups of more than 8 now those rules of judah continue until june the 4th the question i guess is when will those rules be lifted and what happens when they are will there be a return of those big street protests that we saw last year in the meantime hong kong's government says it will fully implement this new legislation it says the legislation is needed to punish those who create violence as well as punish those who support independence there was one line in premier league chung's speak to the
