and marking the start of easter in isolation not a down cathedral in paris holds a special service a year afterward devastating fire. it's a grim milestone in the fight against the corona virus the number of people who have died worldwide past 100001 friday but infections appear to be slowing in europe's hardest hit countries the world health organization says that doesn't mean countries should ease restrictions which have put half the world's population under lockdown. i know that some countries are already planning the transition out of stay at home less 3 questions w.h.o. wants to see distractions lifted as much as anyone i descend time
3:02 am
lifting restrictions too quickly could lead to a deadly resurgence the way down can be as dangerous as the way up if not money properly more than 1600000 people have been affected since the outbreak was detected in china last year europe accounts for more than half of global cases they u.s. is the current hotspot it has the most infections in the world and nearly 500000 despite that president says he hopes the curve there could be flattening we're seeing hospital admissions declining very substantially as i said a nationwide the number of new cases per day is flattening substantially suggesting that we're near the peak and comprehensive strategy is working overtime or guidelines to slow the spread or decreasing the rate of new cases very substantially and will result in fewer hospital admissions and we're seeing that
3:03 am
it's. incredible i think with with no exceptions it's looking like it's slow. john hendren is in chicago and he says president tom believes the u.s. death toll will be less than what experts project. he can't pushing to open the economy in his words very very soon and by open i mean end of the restrictions that require people to stay home and begin allowing those businesses the non-essential businesses to reopen throughout the united states he said that on a day in which the death toll worldwide crossed 100000 he said he hoped to keep the u.s. death toll below that number and he was talking about numbers like 526-5000 dead ideally in his words those are horrific numbers more than all of the americans who have died in all of the wars since the since korea in the 1950 s.
3:04 am
however it would be much less than the 2200000 eat pointed out who would have died in the u.s. according to forecasts had the us done nothing however medical experts have been pushing back on that the president insisted he will listen to his medical experts he was roundly criticized a few weeks ago for saying that he would like to open the economy back up by easter that would be this weekend clearly the united states is not ready for that those numbers continue to go up but while everyone wants those numbers to go down the president has an additional reason and that is that his popularity seems to taken a significant hit when the death toll in brazil from coronavirus has passed the 1000 blog hits the hardest hit a lot the american country but despite this president is out of also not all remains defiant in his pushback against social isolation measures to a national holiday and 5 he visited
3:05 am
a hospital and met with support those he has in the past compared kovan 1000 virus to a small flu and he maintains the economy and jobs must prevail while today's a bay though his life for us and brought on a set of. given the fact that these numbers are increasing is that likely to change the president's acts who told that we think. well it's not likely as we have seen him this friday again leaving the presidential palace and stopping by at a bakery where he was seeing mingling with people talking to them hugging them taking pictures among other things he was not respecting social distancing or wearing any type of masks of that this is not the 1st time that the president has done something like this it has been ongoing for the past months later on he posted a video where he was filming the journalists following and he was saying that the journalists were not respecting social distancing just like him so it's well known
3:06 am
what the president thinks of the world health organizations recall mendacious he has not been respecting them it's also that letter as you just said the press and was just referring to the importance of keeping the job of the enormous impact that lockdowns have on the economy and he said that your priority right now is not not only to save lives but also to protect brazil's economy the confrontation with also not is not just with the world health organization but also with his health minister who are here this week he threatened to fire we're told by sources in brazil but the reason why he was not is because of the interference of high ranking members within the military and i don't it's becoming increasingly isolated he's in that direct confrontation with the crucial governors in his country governors of rio they join nato of follow who would shift on maintaining the lockdown in their cities asking people to remain in their homes they also saw a confrontation with congress confrontations with the supreme court and we're hearing more and more the coals the talks of impeaching the precedents got what we
3:07 am
do know right now is that those who would be in charge of impeaching him right now more focused on fighting the virus and preventing the death death toll from going up but actually president into this here talking to us as a mentor from want to serve as a couple of argentina just bring us up to speed with what's happening in argentina . well argentina was one of the 1st countries in latin america to impose have very strict lockdown with security forces on the streets demanding people to remain in their homes also asking those who came from europe china or other countries to maintain a very strict quarantine and that has worked until now the death toll in argentina is about until 2 days 82 people have died around 2008 infections have happened so far the president of the lockdown was supposed to be maintained until this and monday the president is expected to announce about this will continue the lockdown
3:08 am
will remain in place until. the end of the month early may and in spite of the impact that it could have that the situation could have been argentina's economy argentina is on the verge of default with a very high inflation recession among other things so a lot down here is having a tremendous impact on argentina's economy and as i said before we could have a huge impact on the possibility also of argentina defaulting on its sovereign debt and it had been a very very big challenge for the government to maintain this lockdown because in some of this country's poorest areas in slums for example people have continued to go out to go on the streets the police have been trying to keep them in their houses but they say that they leave on a day to day basis that they need to go out on the streets to make ends meet to survive and that's why it has been very very challenging for argentina and to many other countries in latin america 2 months in place. as to reza thanks very much
