1:01 am
united states the highest death toll in the world what does that mean for the presidential election that just weeks away. and racing against time in tasmania australia rescuers are trying to save scores of pilot whales after they become marooned in shallow waters. i'm guy raz it's and welcome to the show the united nations general assembly has been holding its annual debate as the world body marks 75 years since its founding but far from delivering a unifying message on the anniversary u.s. president donald trump repeatedly lashed out at china this in a new format for the assembly because of the coronavirus pandemic and it was the 1st time world leaders a didn't gather in new york but instead addressed the forum via video. facemask
1:02 am
some tight security at u.n. headquarters even though the most. wish guests joined by video link a precaution to avoid worsening the coronavirus pandemic that has already killed almost 1000000 people worldwide. to a half empty hall of socially distance u.n. ambassadors u.n. chief antonio good terrorists warned about tensions between the u.s. and china threatening to tear the organization and the world apart if i was very quick the 5 watts men. over the world cannot afford the future tomorrow just because of use the globe in a great friction. on trade and financial rules about official intelligence capacity . a technological and economic environment risks you know everything we turning into do and we literally revive and we must avoid at all costs. and the increasingly difficult relationship between the 2 superpowers was on show
1:03 am
as soon as president trump's prerecorded statement started rolling. to address the united nations general assembly 75 a us leader said the u.n. should hold beijing accountable for the covert 19 crisis. and trump championed his policy of putting his country's national interests fast. as president i have rejected the failed approaches of the past and i are proudly putting america 1st just as you should be putting your characters 1st. with early voting for the u.s. presidential elections already underway in some u.s. states trump speech attacking china on trade in the environment was aimed as much at u.s. voters as other world leaders. in contrast russia's president putin and chinese
1:04 am
president xi jinping struck an unusually comes literally and they called for a global response to the coronavirus pandemic and more international cooperation. we should embrace the vision of a community with a shared future we should see each other as members of the same big family to see win win cooperation and not fall into the trap of a clash of civilizations. critics would say china's actions really reflect that stomps on the united nations 75th anniversary unity is in short supply. but for more i'm joined from the united nations in new york city a by journalist james right on james the trouble pointing the finger at china for the krona virus is nothing new but just how surprising was it to see him use the u.n. as a forum to make these accusations. well like you say it wasn't the pride thing donald trump mentioned china in a negative way and that was the pride thing to us here exactly how he did it it was
1:05 am
a sure speech by trump standards only 7 minutes long and straight at the top in there with the phrase china virus that everyone knows when you're talking about coded 19 years in that phrase it really. and so yes it was the extent to which his speech a short one which while mentioning some of the ratio like the iran nuclear deal and how he just made. was really largely focused on china and i guess the question of why because here at the united nations china has a veto america has a veto they can block or significant action here when it comes to for example investigating john or an accountable for supposedly being responsible for the virus and so donald trump a few weeks away from election mostly talking to the crowd and bashing china seemed
1:06 am
to do quite well with the u.s. elektra and there i'm talking not just about republicans but democrats quite likely . and that regard to tighten the locking horns at the u.n. but in his opening remarks the secretary general and warned to quote we must do everything at 12 voigt a new cold war how much do you think china and the u.s. it took that to heart based on comments. well i mean it's the 3 of the united nations and one can only say that international diplomacy in 2020 is not a great point like mr terrace the secretary general of global distrust is maybe some of its worst levels that we've seen since the u.n. was created in 1945 at the end of the 2nd world war from donald trump was saying obviously he's going off to china in quite a big way doesn't really care about the repercussions china's president jiang
1:07 am
jumping he doesn't try the u.s. directly in his prerecorded address he does make references to for example the paris climb a quarter 20 deigned donald trump famously pulled out of donald trump is also pulling out of the world health organization and the iran nuclear deal i guess that's where leaders like she and president putin of russia see and advantage as the u.s. vacate the position of global leadership maybe they can step in a wave the flag the multilateralism and win some political political point in doing all right journalist james right now at the u.n. in new york thank you. well now to the latest a pandemic news the u.s. a death toll from cope at 19 has passed the grim milestone of more than 200000 according to johns hopkins university that's the highest number so far for any
1:08 am
country accounting for more than one in 5 deaths and globally it's putting president donald trump handling of the pandemic in the spotlight as he campaigns for his 2nd term in office on average the u.s. is now losing around 800 lives every day to the virus trumps a democratic rival joe biden says trump's lies and incompetence as he calls them are the main reason that the united states has seen so many deaths from the virus. well on this a dark day for the u.s. let's speak now it to our correspondent stephanus simons in washington d.c. jeff and we are only 6 weeks away from elections in the u.s. what have the presidential candidates promise to do to try to get the coronavirus under control. well the president didn't promise anything now today or yesterday or last week or the week before that the president is busy campaigning saying that he
1:09 am
did everything possible and more. than that to curb the threat and the. outcome of this call with 19 pandemic or cope with 19 infections here in the united states so on part of the president everything is done very very well and he saved the lives of millions in his mind however the other side of it president the president or to joe biden of course criticizing the president democrats are serious about how the president handled this code 19 crisis here and say 200000 death. in just doubling the number this number just doubling in 2 or 3 months is a clear sign that the president mishandled this crisis this pandemic in a very very very very large and significant way well in terms of public perception of how this has been handled i know that you has been talking to us citizens in
1:10 am
denver colorado about what they had to say about today's tragic landmark of 200000 deaths from cope in 1000 let's take a look at it out on the other records in the world that have. been for public health crisis. we have relieved here. the number of be much smaller we think up and then a good job. i think that there is that as story on the other side that wants to say how bad he's handled it but nobody knew where nobody knew where it was coming from in the beginning or what it was all about well we have course i just heard the numbers prove otherwise but you see from those interviews that there's a split in perception in the united states do you think this tragic milestone in any way could be a wake up call that could help unite a poised opposing voices in the u.s. on how to actually deal with this pandemic. no i don't think so i think the united states they stayed to be polarized like this i think division in the country in
1:11 am
society between the us the people in the united states will remain on the high level and will remain on this topic is they all those who say this is all a hoax actually there is thousands of people coming to a rally events and campaign events off donald trump no social distancing no mask wearing or largely no mass wearing and on the other hand you have a lot of people who say like this is unbelievable it really takes only 2 to wear a mask to keep social distancing 6 feet away and do not mingle with a large number of people to actually save thousands of lives there is no i can't foresee any scenario that the united states at the moment will unify after those numbers after today after this milestone passing 200000 to combat this coronavirus pandemic in any other way and the world will certainly be watching in at the coming weeks and months a stephens iman's in washington d.c. thank you very much. let's take

leaders as specifically ecowas who had said that they wanted us a vote into leaves the transition council. asked for is to 1000000000 to ease the transition not only president owes a transition but also the prime minister so the name and the choice of the prime minister will be also a very important element but it is also important to remember is that congress out also in greece to have a longer transition no initially as no there seems to agree to either 18 months transition good also or eliminate it will be important because the loudspeaker ition of the head of state has been also required. to be told it is one of their required and so we will see if they will

1:32 am
your august jobs report showed the economy's gained back 10600000 jobs since april nearly 50 percent of all jobs lost to depend on the unemployment rate decrease to 8.4 percent a notable achievement considering many people thought it could get as high as 25 percent both employment and overall economic activity however remained well below their creep endemic levels in the path ahead continues to be highly uncertain our business correspondent and squad to has been following this hearing for us he joins us now from new york hi and that was quite a contrast in tone we heard there give us your take on what we've been hearing from new holiday. you know clearly it's didn't you chin is not wrong when he talks about the fastest recover new recovery where do you did not really mention that to precisely was that before we saw the biggest drop in the on the fast to stop especially in the history of the united states but steve newton is part of the current administration so it's no surprise that especially as so shortly before the
1:33 am
election he's mentioning more what's going right and not what's going wrong and then on the other side chairman jerome powell of the federal reserve is independent from the white house so he could be a bit more specific and he also mentioned that there are still about 11000000 americans without a job that the job losses we've seen and this crisis exceeds by far what we've seen during the financial crisis and he mentioned the u.s. election there it's just 6 weeks away is there any hope of lawmakers agreeing on a new relief package for that it doesn't seem very likely and then we have to see how majorities are even after the elections we shouldn't forget it's not just about the president but also about the house of representatives and the senate if that's going to change after november 3rd i'm standing here on a local street a retail street in brooklyn and just from where i stand i don't know how good you

1:36 am
unrecoverable i'm going to try making someone. i'm skeptical at this point that it's going to get to. the just the density of the smoke that we've had these past 2 weeks has been. astonishing. the smoke doesn't just deposit particles on the grapes it seeps into them as well it can't simply be washed off. your resulting wines can taste and smell overly ashy all smoky and obviously that's a character most people want to know one. definitely not which leaves of in an adjacent hansen despondent 90 some percent of all. american wine. gosh that's crazy. but it's probably even crazier that this is on top of pandemic
1:37 am
can you know our tasting rooms were closed for a few months this year that didn't help. so. you know who knows a lot of growers here sell their grapes to one producers but they can't be sure they should even risk processing the grapes at all it could leave them sitting on a year's worth of bad wine so even good grapes might not find buyers i think these wildfires are likely are going to be without question the those single worst disaster the wine grape growing community has ever faced joe it's going to be a real struggle for many people to make it through this year 3 years hard work going to waste for many here a catastrophe that could see several grows and producers go out of business. now to some of the other global business stories making news. intel says it's being given the green light to continue supplying certain products to huawei the news

2 fields alternative demand for bikes is growing faster than many suppliers can keep up with at the world's largest bicycle maker giant in taiwan it's all hands on deck. so cio owns a bike shop in taiwan increased demand has eaten into the supply of bicycles and his stuff room. so we used to purchase children's bikes 3 times a month. now we only receive those folks once a month. and we don't have enough to sell the. mailbox could many in the industry know what the time when these retailers experiencing. the world's biggest bicycle maker giant is based here it's sales outside of taiwan are booming too in the 1st 7 months of this year giant spike sales increased by nearly 30 percent in europe and 20 percent in the u.s.
1:40 am
and china compared with the same period last year importers report that their inventory has dwindled from a 3 month supply to just one month. while the man outpaces production at all times can do is to push cash here that many are now that we've seen by one china and then now that they are all producing close to their maximum capacity and experts don't see the demand slowing anytime soon. so your. users realize that riding bicycles is a good way to be eco friendly. but it's also more recently the pandemic also changed people's habits and boosted the demand for bicycles. so i'm optimistic. i would suggest the bike in the street expand its capacity steadily based on their perception of their own capability with that you're clearly told it's a good one. for now giant is sticking with its current production scale bike

retailers like size cio will have to keep waiting to restock and hope customers will keep coming anyway. at the moment it looks like they will. and finally india's famed monument to love the 17th century white marble taj mahal has reopened to visitors after being close for 6 months few to the pandemic it's not quite the usual experience though only $5000.00 visitors are alive and daily that a quarter of the usual number of mosques are compulsory is having your temperature . i'm not fit for me thank you so sure watching.

1:45 am
making traditions live on from generation to generation. welcome to arts and culture anyone who has read or seen macbeth remembers the famous line out damn spot out i say as lady macbeth tries desperately to scrub her hands clean well since the coronavirus that we've all done plenty of hand washing theatres too are taking precautions as they reopen in places including here in germany. yes now i would. first stop the powderpuff so this is it the return of theatre to a kind of new normality macbeth should be there for price's own make up. almost alone on the stage of dressed and darts shall spiel murders at a distance his desperation the rush of blood to the head his lust for power are
1:46 am
solitary moments backed by the band woods of burnham actor director christian friedel has bought a slimmed down version of his planned macbeth to the stage the new season because searching for macbeth. show is a foretaste a theatrical trailer in which 31 people are missing and there are usually 37 people on stage and now we have the band and the to make the best so to speak so of course it's a big difference from. the rehearsals in spring 2020 unimaginable now christian freedom is intense interaction with dancers actors and musicians it was supposed to be a monumental shakespeare evening with all the blood sweat and tears that theatre can muster. practice for how it was i'm almost ready in march
1:47 am
but usually the last week is always the week were some things are changed decisions are made things are left out that's when you really get looked ready to premiere and we were prevented from doing that. now 6 months later everything is back to square one at the start shell shield trust and audience flow systems are being set up so theatre goers have less contact with each other. warning signs are everywhere the theater has become a danger zone. on stage actors maintain one and a half meters distance or in more energetic scenes 6 meters soloists rouer on stage and in the auditorium this makes for a more intimate but not necessarily easy production. like going to acting school
1:48 am
that security whether a few people it is very very difficult to convince them the room is not filled with an atmosphere that automatically comes alive so a little more has to happen that's why it's such a challenge and i'm glad to be able to play at all. the. searching for macbeth in dressed in the time of corona the stage belongs to the warrior. michael krueger from 2 w.'s culture desk is here now to talk a little bit about the situation in theater mike intimacy is normally such a big part of it or it seems to have gone a little bit missing here absolutely nearly everything is for. kisses

and the the same theater we already saw is also performing the magic mountain the back at the moment and look at. all of a kid. that's stunning isn't it beautiful but this is also the perfect place for the pandemic it's about patients of his senatorial where everybody's already obsessed with illness so the actors don't have to get very close to each other. oh my gosh i could just watch that for hours ok but here in germany you know we're really lucky we have the situation there is public funding for theatre not the situation everywhere still this pandemic has to be a huge financial blow to theatres yet they have to cut every possible way. and even in which is sold out that doesn't mean that they have already enough money. because most of the seed have to remain empty and we all and the people also
1:50 am
