figures are encouraging we have reached the peak of coke at 19 and we are close to the beginning of the descent in germany the lock down appears to be working with landmarks empty deserted even you know. the latest coronavirus numbers in germany a reason for some hope the increase is fashioning and the current number of infections is lowering a bit if we count the people who are recovered and those who lost their lives. more than 18000 people have died in italy its squares remain empty the impact of weeks of prescriptions is clear to see for those families hardest hit the government says loan and mortgage repayments will be suspended and there are questions about who will help pay for the pandemic. the thing. italy is an integral part of the e.u. the e.u. must show a strong swift and unified response to the repercussions of this pandemic we have
5:05 am
to provide answers about politics finance and the economy because this is in all of our interests this does not only concern italy but also spain and all countries that face economic and social problems and those questions are being asked across europe it is grappling with this crisis from the north to the south and nowhere is untouched by. the happening deep divisions that are inside the e.u. about how it should be financed days of talks have no resulted in an agreement held by the french finance minister as the most important economic plan in the e.u. history it will allow credit from the blocks bailout fund to go to the worst affected countries until the crisis is over this emergency plan and we'll shield our economic and social fabric as we dive into a recession. where house prices abates we need we will need to spur the economic recovery he needs it is imperative that we brought together

the many families in europe easter weekend which usually market time of togetherness coronavirus will mean many will now spend it apart remembering those who they've lost and then he would out as there are. philip the hall is a financial analyst and he explained why you ministers struggled to reach a deal. well obviously northern europeans tend to think of themselves as as frugal and they tend to think of southern europeans as profit and they don't therefore don't want to share a bank account it's slightly more complicated than that but really at base that's what it's about but nobody's actually talking about neutralizing all debt they're talking about a common physical effort a temporary calm and physical effort which has to be large in order to respond to the economic emergency but would be time limited and would be for specific purposes like medical assistance or indeed helping to spark a recovery when the pandemic passes i think it's absolutely crucial because of the
5:07 am
threat. of post crisis austerity and a financial crisis neutralized and indeed because of the political acrimony you know at a time when thousands and thousands of italians and spaniards. have died there's a feeling that northern europeans are blaming them for their plight and that has gone down very badly indeed opec and its allies have agreed to a historic cut in production to counter the slump in demand caused by call of virus the group's going to cut $10000000.00 barrels per day until early june so a binge of it has this report. a price war which started in march did not last as long as previous disagreements but its impact has been widespread u.s. shale oil producers filed for bankruptcy as major energy projects have been delayed or suspended in the oil industry face again if it can job losses the oversupply
5:08 am
coincided with a massive reduction in demand for oil because of the global slowdown caused by coronavirus in some markets oil was selling for less than $10.00 a barrel which spell trouble for oil reliant economies when they agreed the market went up when they had their own difference is the market went down and what is worse than not agreeing is course is competing for the c.m. limited area of demand and the world as it stands right now. the crisis began after a deal to limit production fell apart and saudi arabia increased its supply to a record 12300000 barrels a day along with russia's 11300000 barrels the markets were flooded to an extent that storage even started to run out as there's agreement is to slash oil production at least until next year the decision will be reviewed in december iran venezuela and libya are exempt from the production cuts a few hours after the opec agreement the g 20 group of nations meet and decide in
5:09 am
cuts from the u.s. canada norway and others some say the crisis created a perfect opportunity for big investors to buy stakes in european oil firms or there's a cute saudis in russian's of economic warfare against the u.s. us media reports 2 senators were working on legislation to remove u.s. troops and defense systems from saudi soil if there were no output cuts the united states says its output fell because of the price for and decreasing demand but it hasn't committed to any cuts for many years i used to think opec was very unfair i hated opec you will know the truth i hated it because it was a fix but somewhere along the line that broke down and it went the opposite way and we have a tremendously powerful energy industry in this country now number one in the world and i don't want those jobs being lost but experts believe even after the record cuts by opec and other produces the gloom for oil economies may not be over just because he says demolished russian so far has been $20000000.00 barrels
5:10 am
a day i think it's probably more towards a $3035000000.00 barrels a day if you look at india alone the 3rd largest consumer of oil having decreased this consumption by 70 percent i would say it is more oil so 10000000 barrels a day is what so far been priced into the market and you saw the last cluster response so we probably need more to do the trick. what began as an attempt to grab a bigger share of the market is ending after 31 days with no real wins for anyone involved some of the job their indonesia is struggling with a sudden surge in the number of people with the virus the government's not enforcing new measures to continue to spread the country's the ha got the highest number of infections in southeast asia with more than 600 deaths of jessica washington's life for us in jakarta jessica what more do we know about these new

measures that are coming in. well rob millions of people around her awaking up to the reality of these new mass social distancing regulations now schools and businesses have already non-essential businesses have already been closed here in jakarta for a number of weeks the real change that starts from today friday in jakarta is that they will be military and police patrols around the streets of jakarta to enforce the social distancing regulations so gatherings of more than 5 people and you could face a fine of around a $700.00 us $700.00 us dollars or even a year in $7000.00 u.s. dollars sorry or a year in jail if you are found to breach those regulations the real problem that is happening here is that there is a lack of a coherent national strategy that has left regions and provinces scrambling together their own response while we wait for a more coherent strategy from the president here in indonesia indonesia has been
5:12 am
criticized for the way that it's been handling this crisis the spread of the virus why is that. well the reality is indonesia was incredibly slow to even confirm initial cases of the virus here in the country it was already march by the time we confirmed cases by that point the virus had spread well beyond china in the early weeks of this crisis the intonation government was actually actively trying to recruit trying to draw in foreign visitors to come to indonesia rather than trying to get the health care system ready people are waiting for perhaps even a partial lockdown or some sort of more coherent guidance from president djoko doto so far that has not been forthcoming in fact what we're witnessing right now in the lead up to the muslim holiday of aid many millions of people are expected to travel
5:13 am
from the capital cheer their hometowns to celebrate with their families many people are out of work and khan afford to live in the capital we have not even heard whether that travel will be and the real fear is that is that people will travel from jakarta when most of the confirmed cases of corona virus here in indonesia and take the virus with them to provinces that don't have any health infrastructure just a washington giving us that update from jakarta jessica thanks very much. well still ahead and al-jazeera. developments on the health of britain's prime minister after 3 days in intensive care. plus brazil's president to grows increasingly isolated in his his country tries to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

hello there we've had some very nice weather conditions across the korean peninsula over the last few days rather unsettled areas of japan and in fact a bit of a carousel lately across central and southern china that is set to change but in the meantime as a say some good guys into seoul in south korea it is the time of year they do a spring clean up on some of the monuments and as you can see the conditions also very nice to do just that it will stay fine and dry as we go through friday want to see shots pushing into west the northern areas of honshu tom it is not too bad 16 degrees across into tokyo and osaka but then look at this rain walls again back in the 4 calls really all the way up towards beijing and in particular very heavy on friday across the central areas but then it sinks southwards and this is when it could be particularly heavy guangxi guangdong up towards a fusion as well attempt is there not too bad but this rain is very heavy we could have some localized flooding it's coming down in some very saturated ground and really the same commutes that across much of indonesia we have also had
5:15 am
a we'll have more rather heavy rains across areas of combo dhea as well as you can see sumatra widely unsettled borneo same story as we go through friday and saturday and then really a southern areas of india across into carol's whole night over the next couple of days where we'll see the shadows and elsewhere it remains very warm. greece the birthplace of democracy but ethnic turks from the northeast tell a different story they bounce to control our nation our believe their religious leaders jailed journalists silenced schools closed and a surge in the far right they say that if you don't like police you can vote why i'm turkish but i'm most of the people in power investigates western thrice contested space on al-jazeera.
5:16 am
the arab. world. you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories this hour 6600000 americans lost their jobs in the past week because of measures to stop coronavirus pandemic since mid march nearly 17000000 people in the u.s. a filed for jobless benefits after a sudden surge in violence infections indonesia's tightening measures to curb the spread of coronavirus anyone breaking the rules can be fined up to $70000.00 u.s. dollars and be jailed for up to 6 years the country's reported more than 600 deaths . the e.u. has agreed to make more than one trillion dollars available to member states under
5:17 am
lockdown and fighting the coronavirus the french finance minister has described the economic plan as the most important in the blocks history. britain's prime minister is out of intensive care 2 weeks after testing positive for corona virus after 3 days in i.c.u. wallace johnston is now back in a hospital ward and is in extremely good spirits according to downing street johnny angela has the latest. he's been moved this evening from intensive care back onto the main ward at st thomas' hospital which is one of the country's leading hospitals and he said to be an extremely good spirits now this would have been boris johnson's 4th day in intensive care he's 55 years old and he was admitted sunday evening with a persistent temperature and episode persistent high temperature and a persistent cough and he received standard option treatment for 3 nights but he did not need mechanical ventilation and earlier it was reported that dominic rob
5:18 am
who is the foreign secretary and was designated boris johnson's deputy during his time in hospital had not spoken to the prime minister since saturday and that was obviously a very large cause for concern so there's no doubt going to be a huge collective sigh of relief throughout the cabinet and throughout the government this evening and no doubt the prime minister will be keen to get back to work as soon as is possible soon if he's fully recovered before he was admitted to hospital he left behind some very clear instructions for what was going to happen in this country for the rollout of mass testing for covert 19 for the provision of personal protective equipment for n.h.s. staff and i have to say neither of those things have really reached their targets yet earlier at the government's chief scientific officer said that the u.k. death toll from corona virus has reached 881 that's the number of deaths recorded in british hospitals today and that brings the total number of deaths to 7978
5:19 am
and the scientific office said that it is expected to continue to rise for at least 2 weeks. brazil's president has gone on television again to defend his response to the pandemic and encourage people to return to work jailable so noddle criticized state governments for imposing containment measures saying the consequences of combat in the virus cannot be more harmful than the disease itself he's facing widespread criticism and protests for downplaying the crisis well you're marshall's the editor of the news website the brazilian reporter is joining us now from south part of thanks very much indeed for being with us why is the president getting so much pushback well the thing is the 1st thing they're made is that job also moderate no is an old lawyer among so you know all major countries is the all only president of a major state who has kind of o'grady dismissed this debate the all the coronavirus so brit has called it on a couple of occasions
5:20 am
a little fluent even if it is the snuffles on one occasion and so you don't he's repeatedly general in the severity he's pushing for these isolation measures to stop and people feel that he's just saying the economy and jobs i hated or massive public health crisis was about to hit this country given the amount of response that negative response that he seems to be getting and it seems to be increasing is that a tipping point do you think at which both sonata is going to have to change his focus. well i mean we thought that that could actually already happen because the thing that terrible samantha usually does usually takes his political cues from donald trump in the united states and as we know donald trump has slightly changed his approach towards the comment about a separate bush oval solana has stayed firm so far but the thing is he is reaching close that's a big point some may say because earlier in the week he attended to fire his own
5:21 am
health minister louise and he came on there who has become something of a superstar in brazil at the moment due to his handling of the crisis he's followed all the world health organization gay planes and his approval ratings are currently double joels anonymous so those are now tempted to kind of make a move on monday so he was getting a little bit too popular but he was then reigned in of the last minute by some of the military generals and his and his government basically suggesting that if you were to do that you may have crossed the line what do you think the political future holds for the president is typical he's extremely isolated in so many different ways in the capital but as he the as i mentioned there you have the health minister is turning against him at the moment you mentioned at the top of the segment that the state governors every brazil are imposing their own social isolation measures but isn't it an opposition will say now to congress is currently
5:22 am
against them as is the supreme court so he's got this kind of $20.00 to $25.00 perhaps 30 percent of the electorate which has remained true to him and. you know as this as this crisis continues we don't really know exactly which way those approval ratings what will we expect him to slay that. give us some context about how the spread of the virus is going on through through brazil and how the medical teams are dealing with it. well so at this point we're currently at $941.00 x. in the country and if you look at the bulletin 18 curves so far it doesn't look too dissimilar to that which we've seen it to be a speed these kind of countries but the problem here is that there is a huge backlog of tests to diagnosis that there is no long time to come and some of the some of the dates that were announced today and yesterday were people who
5:23 am
actually died and almost 2 weeks ago to give you an idea of far back the affection of us actually are and at the moment it seems like the health system is just about holding on there are a couple of cities one in particular in the north of the country and my mounts which is already reaching a point of collapse they haue all of their intensive care units already filled and the numbers of patients arriving in most of those just increasing we see in a lot of the other big cities like some polymer in situ at the moment the government and the army have been building some field hospitals holes really. bringing in some more beds so that you don't deal with this huge demand that they're going to happen in coming weeks your marshall thanks very much indeed for breaking down the situation for us in brazil that's here in marshall talking to us from south pollo argentina as one of the latest countries to extend its
