transition out of stay out homeless 3 questions w.h.o. wants to see distractions lifted as much as anyone i descend time 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 infected since the outbreak was detected in china late last year and europe accounts for more than half of global cases the us is the current hotspot it has the most infections in the world with more than 500900 spite that president trump 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
5:03 am
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 it's. incredible i think with with no exceptions it's looking like it's low. but u.s. health experts are calling for caution there warning that are likely to be more cases once restrictions are east it was starting to see the leveling off in the coming down dr burke said mentioned but it's important to remember that this is not the time to feel that since we have made such important advance in the sense of success of the mitigation that we need to be pulling back at all. well the u.s. has become the 1st country to have more than 2000 deaths in one day but its president believes the death toll well below or than what experts are predicting
5:04 am
john hendren has this update from chicago 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 hopes to keep the u.s. death toll below that number and he's 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. 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
5:05 am
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. the death toll in brazil from corona virus has passed the 1000 mark it's the hardest hit latin american country but despite this president jetta both sonata remains defiant and is pushing back against social isolation measures during the national holiday on friday he visited a hospital and met supporters in the pasta bowl sonata has compared covered 19 virus to a small flu and maintains the economy and jobs must prevail in neighboring argentina the government's tightening its measures to stop the spread of the virus to reserve
5:06 am
bo is joining us from buenos aires in argentina let's talk about argentina 1st of all to reason that the president has been holding a press conference what's he been saying. well that's correct reference a lot of the phone numbers wants to make sure that he's following the world health organization's recall mendacious argentina's quarantine will remain in place until april 26th the president said that it's very very important to try to stop the spread of the virus in argentina so that this country's health care system public health care system can be ready to cope with what's coming next it is expected that they feet of the virus here could be happening around mid may and that's why the president is trying to gain time argentina was one of the 1st countries in latin america to impose a very restrictive lockdown 1st it began with those who are arriving from europe from the united states from china and asking people to remain in their homes with
5:07 am
the police controlling them and i have to that they move towards a complete lockdown with security forces on the streets over 38000 people have been exchanged for not respecting the current situation on the ground but the president in spite of the situation the president has extend that the quarantine and what he's saying is that he's prioritizing life over the economy let's not forget about what's happening in argentina this is not a regular situation there's an enormous economic crisis in this country there is a double digit inflation an enormous recession an employment poverty rates on the rice and that's why what's happening right now this knockdown it's having a big impact on people's life in spite of this the precedent set today that he won't abandon that the state won't abandon arjan times that they won't abandon companies and that they'll be accompanying and supporting we have already seen some movements from argentinean government in cash handouts other things in support for
5:08 am
small businesses but there's also a lot of fear about what's coming next the possibility of hyperinflation and other situations that argentina has seen and the price. that people here i am very very afraid of is a very different situation of course in brazil as we were mentioning of course president served both so not a very putting the economy 1st and in many ways ignoring the kind of suggestions that he put forward for social isolation that the w.h.o. has been putting forward given the fact that the numbers are going up in brazil do you think there's any chance that his attitude might begin to change when it seems saying likely this friday he was seen again leaving the presidential palace and going to a hospital in about a bad round he went inside a bakery started mingling with people hugging them taking pictures among other things he was not wearing a mask and he was not definitely respecting space or social isolation so the world

we prepare the meat. the trade of live wild animals for food medicine clothing and more has gone on for years but as the world grapples with the outbreak of coma 19 the risk it poses to public health is now under scrutiny. it's believed the virus most likely emerged from this market in ruhani probably involving dance but also possibly other animals such as penguins. the market in rouhani is still closed and the beijing government has issued a temporary ban on similar live wildlife markets elsewhere in china but there are many similar markets around asia trading wild animals like this one in indonesia north so the way i see province that's snakes and other wildlife as well as dogs and cats are all sold here and live in cages stacked on top of each other. when you have different animals in such close contact it is possible for cross species infections to happen other diseases can also be transferred between species and
5:12 am
then infect a human. ending the exotic wildlife trade completely is almost impossible many people's livelihoods depend on it and the trade goes on in many corners of the world animal rights activists say wildlife conservation isn't just about saving animals lives but humans too. people have exploited nature and wildlife they catch them from spaces where they should be free when you combine that with poor hygiene markets it is a risk a lot is still unknown about this virus and exactly how it began but what is clear is that this isn't just a global health crisis but an environmental one too jessica washington al-jazeera jakarta chad's president says his country's troops will no longer take part in military operations outside national borders in announcement comes as the army ended a major offensive against boko haram which left more than 50 soldiers dead nicholas

5:20 am
locked down tens of millions who by province have finally emerged from there as their message to the outside during dark times the ruled will once again be bright katrina you al-jazeera beijing. there are concerns about how coping with the virus is affecting the mental health of funk line medical workers and we spoke to dr feisal said he's the national director of primary care chan med in florida it provides health care for elderly people every single one of our patients receive at least one phone call on a weekly basis we call them love calls my father is one of the 10 med patients and he says this is the gold standard this should be the gold standard the way that the doctors in the clinics call the patients regularly it allows us to stay on top not only keep the relationship strong but also keep us ahead of the game if they start mentioning subtle clues like hey you know i woke up today and i just wasn't feeling so well that allows the doctors then to probe
5:21 am
a little bit more and see if they need to be brought into the center this is shown us at least for us we've gone from 90 percent in person visits to 90 percent virtual visits so we've realized the power of just communicating via telephone or via video conferencing so i think i think in all it's going to allow the doctor patient relationship to become much more intimate and it will make a lot of those conversations like end of life conversations and palliative care much more much more humane much more personal efforts to eradicate a bull and the democratic republic of congo have suffered a setback the 1st person to contract the disease in more than 50 days has died his death comes just 3 days before the country was to declare the 20 month break over. the world's top oil producing nations have agreed on the need to stabilize the price of oil which has been hit by the coronavirus pandemic energy ministers of the world's $20.00 largest economies discuss the deal by video conference it follows thursday's agreement by the oil cartel opec and its allies to cut global production
5:22 am
by 10 percent but the pact was stalled after mexico failed to agree to its share of cuts president donald trump has since said the u.s. will further reduce its route to help mexico jeff colgan is a professor of political science at brown university and he's author of petro aggression when oil causes war he says it's unrealistic to believe the opec deal will stabilize the oil markets over night. oil markets have actually fallen on news of the deal as opposed to rising as opec plus had hoped that it would happen they were looking for a boost of up to $15.00 a barrel and in fact prices are going into reverse and that's striking because i think there's really 2 things that are happening because of what's happening here one is that while the deal does contain some substantive cuts most of what's
5:23 am
being announced are so-called market cuts meaning that these are the kinds of things are going to happen deal or no deal these are decisions made by individual producers reacting to the change in market conditions that are you know ramping down because of lower oil prices so in some sense that this is more hype than real substance and the 2nd thing that matters for the prices is the fact that there is a can persistent overhang in supply so the expected shortfall in demand over the next 2 months is something like $25.00 to $30000000.00 barrels a day and this deal is $10.00 to $15000000.00 barrels a day so it only goes part of the way to addressing that massive demand shock work and continuing to see oversupply and that's going to drive prices likely downwards
5:24 am
as inventory continue to build it is significant in the sense that saudi arabia and a few of the gulf monarchies are changing their strategy to certain degree but much of what's happening here as i said is market cut this is going to happen anyway especially in the united states. tensions between poland and russia are rising ahead of events planned to mark the end of world war 2 warsaw is accusing moscow of trying to rewrite history as it remembers the thousands of polish officers murdered by soviet secret police 80 years ago said vassell reports from the cotton forest where the massacre took place. in this russian forest mass graves filled with bodies of polish officers were discovered in 1943 now a memorial site it shows the truth soviet leader joseph stalin always denied he blamed what is known as the cut the massacre on hitler's troops only after the collapse of the soviet union did russia acknowledge the estimated $22000.00
5:25 am
executions were carried out by stalin secret police. but leading up to the 80th anniversary of the massacre statements on russian state t.v. have again started to question this was an angry response from poland. and local activists have also demanded the removal of memorial plaques remembering the polish victims no one is allowed to tell untrue things about history and we will prove one by one moment in the mountains or other things but do you say to poland when they say you are rewriting history and changing the fact we. disagree with it because we don't rewrite anything 80 years after the cutting massacre it still causes controversy between russia and poland russia is preparing to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its victory in world war 2 but
5:26 am
a government is being accused of changing historical facts by promoting a narrative that always is dark truth and critics say president putin is not only angering his neighbors but is also turning back the clock on recounts alleviation when the european parliament last year stated that the soviet union was asking the as nazi germany for starting the 2nd world war president putin responded with anger he blamed poland instead accusing the polish impasses or to nazi germany of being anti semitic. this is not a question to us this is the question to them why are they doing it what do they created for what does poland have when it advances a thesis that reportedly the us is or was equally good. installing the 2nd world war but this is absurd we didn't asked me to 27000000 deaths the soviet union lost more people during world war 2 than any other nation the defeat of the ninety's in 1945 is commemorated every year with a parade in moscow thread square but some say put ins obsession with the history of
5:27 am
world war 2 has everything to do with modern day politics. russia doesn't have anything else to offer a total failure in economy social policy stagnation and destruction of our national culture therefore the only thing possible is to use some myths about outstanding achievements from the past beginning of course about the price that was paid who started it how the leadership acted and they acted awfully the russian government has not officially changed its conclusion that stalin was responsible for the captain massacre but sources have told our jazeera they believe that without the support of top officials attempts to rewrite this dark chapter would not have been possible to stop fast and al-jazeera from the captain forrest pope francis has marked the start of easter with a late night ceremony in st peter's square usually thousands gather to watch the way of the cross procession traditionally held rooms coliseum but this year it was really cater to the vatican and live streamed because of italy's strict covered 19
