a may their fault we'll tell you why and coming up. i'm in paris where the some fashion design is sustainability is more than a fashion statement. but china is trying to take drastic measures to contain the outbreak of a new deadly virus as tens of millions for a pair to travel for the lunar new year the 1st 2 deaths have been announced outside by province the epicenter of the virus and as the death toll climbs more cities are moving to shut down their public transport service is affecting more than 40000000 people scott highly reports from beijing. rushing to catch the last trains before the lunar new year many of these passengers at the beijing west railway station are thinking of the coronavirus i don't think this piracy. properly
controlled i just came back to china i read a lot of news i'm too med i'm not very satisfied with how the government prevented and controlled the disease i'm very afraid of getting infected i am really afraid of those people were relieved and left handed but i do hope the situation will be improved soon. and those inside the city of will han are becoming more frustrated because medical supplies are running short and hospitals are short staffed many festivals for the lunar new year holiday have been canceled across china and not just in the central province the epicenter of the virus in a rare move the government has closed the forbidden city here in beijing over health concerns related to the coronavirus something they didn't do some 17 years ago during the sars crisis. the chinese government was criticized for the way it handled the sars virus back in 2003 mainly for its lack of transparency the world health organization has decided not to declare the current outbreak
a global health emergency but there's growing concern over the coming week when the millions of people who have traveled for the holiday return again raising the risk the virus may be spread further by people who are contaminated but have yet to show symptoms scott hodler al-jazeera beijing hong kong says it's investigating more than 110 suspected cases of the virus and thousands of people have been turning up to its hospitals. yesterday we have more than 5000. and yet 10 this. medical bats occupancy rate is 97 percent actually it's quite full but not as full as they picked off the windows or so right now it's just like they thought that but we often we perceive that after he did the chinese the wrong holiday usually there will be further search in the amount of the amount not just from the isolation that but from the other things like the flu symptoms. other cough he sees
is. well the world health organization says the coronavirus is an emergency in china but it's too early to declare the global one. has more on the international response. but few maci know where ported road they're taking no chances for good reason the people being monitored with the scanners have just flown in from will hand the center of the outbreak. they left before the chinese city was put in lockdown but scenes like this have played out around the world at sydney airport serving australia's largest city many of those flying in from hand on thursday will face masks they knew they'd be screened but there were no reports of illness and they weren't overly worried before we got off the plane and. a few. people braved to be everywhere and when we get out and. a sun some people. tested a fever and asked some questions about your health in the u.s.
one person is known to have contracted the virus health officials in the state of washington where the man lives so he's well and should be allowed home soon as of now there are at least 16 identified close contacts local health departments started reaching out to them yesterday and continue to do so today and the list of countries with confirmed cases of the virus is getting larger most eastern asia but some further afield the data that we've gathered has suggested you know that this could be a very dangerous virus but potential for global spread in and even i don't think it's going to extreme to say even potential you know for a global epidemic. but i don't think that's inevitable at this point and i and the next couple of weeks will be really important to making an assessment of what the real risk is still the mere possibility needs checks like this at major airports until medical experts know a lot more there's
a whole series. of questions we have to ask we don't have all of those answers yet we have some of them we knew had to diagnose we increasingly know how to treat people when they get it what we don't yet know is when somebody is infectious and you they pass it on somebody else the next few weeks could tell us exactly how much of a threat this corona virus poses worldwide the al-jazeera. thousands are rallying in iraq's capsule against the u.s. military presence this is baghdad right now people are responding to a call by. the he controls the largest bloc in the lower house column and earlier this month m.p.'s passed a bill asking for the forces to leave that was in reaction to the killing of the top iranian general costumes for their money and the u.s. drone strike in a baghdad airport non-con is in baghdad he says the protest has swelled one of the largest in recent months. whether there are a 1000000 people hey all know it almost doesn't matter. how it managed to get his
message across that he wants all u.s. presence out of iraq and he's got these people behind him now they've come from all over the south of the country many people have been bussed in to show support to the very influential shia cleric now this is a rally that's likely to have been planned for a while. either meeting with key shia militia leaders over the last few weeks to join discuss what they would need to do to put pressure on the government to get rid of u.s. troops and u.s. presence in iraq now they decided that something like this would be the 1st way of sending a message. the message is very clear like i say it's about getting rid of u.s. troops however this is a government that's in turmoil there have been ongoing antigovernment protests
since october this. quite separate from those protests and there is a caretaker prime minister prime minister. now he hasn't been able to put any pressure on the us indeed what the us has said is that we have at the invitation of the rockies we're going to start. there are muslims are welcoming a unanimous ruling by the un highest court ordering the unmount to take all possible measures to prevent genocide against remaining in the country the international court of justice also ordered the government to preserve all evidence for a possible trial me and ma says it's taken note of the ruling they've bachar courts from the hague. myanma stands accused of one of the world's worst crimes the genocide of its own people the case was brought by the gambia on behalf of dozens of muslim countries their very. creamy. risk of genocide on

should be provided security there and more and more a louder call for justice this is one of the key demand that's now a lot of the ruling are saying that before we decide to go back so this judgment actually gave them a sense of hope there's something there the international community and i now recognize that there is a sense of their suffering has been recognized by the coach. still ahead on al-jazeera 10 newborns die in one south african hospital in just 2 months their mothers one aunt says donald trump is set to announce his plan for the middle east next week when a key player is unlikely to be in washington when that happens. but . how we got the usual rash of showers across the southeast asia that will be want to see showers coming into the philippines not too bad here more sunshine than was
