1:03 pm
continue to test more people we saw. expand their facilities here in delhi been waiting for the syria logic pool the results of the syria logical survey to determine the spread to the virus we also heard from delhi's chief minister a few hours ago and he was positive about the situation despite the fact that delhi has reached needy 100000 cases and that's because he says that only a 3rd of the region's 15000 beds a currently in use do you remember a few weeks ago delhi had a real problem with a shortage of beds but he says that most people are now recovering at home having said that he pleaded with those who have achieved because that's another thing that the worst hit cities are doing is they really promoting plasma therapy as a way of treating patients and so people are trying to the government states are trying to deal with this by expanding testing expanding facilities but you can also
1:04 pm
see behind me i'm at delhi. it's one of the most popular tourist sites in the country on the 1st day that monuments around the country have been allowed to open and despite the fact that something like 8000 visitors would come to put the every day there's been about 50 who have come to visit in the last 8 hours that it's being opened. and the reason being is people are not going out for non essential things because of that rise in the number of cases lives you say that states are responding and i imagine in a country as vast as india states are responding individually and in different ways given the spike that we're seeing could we see restrictions re-imposed in some places. we're already seeing that and stasia and you know states are responding at different times as and really responding to their cases and their trajectory of cases so we have some states going into lock downs lock downs again while others are easing lock down the stretch and today the capital of
1:05 pm
the southeast asia all of kara let that have been on the food and for instance went into a very strict not down for a whole week and carola is the state that has been sort of dealt with the outbreak it has one of the lowest number of cases at deaths and despite that it's going into a full locked out the eastern city of kolkata has decided that it's no longer accepting flights from the 6 worst hit cities for the next 2 weeks the northeastern station has been in a lockdown for about a week now and the southern city of chennai in 3 may bring districts where in the strict lockdown for the last 2 weeks they're starting to ease restrictions and if you look at maharashtra which has throughout the last 3 months it's been the worst affected states but about 6 and a half 1000 new cases every day now despite that especially looking at guidelines finalizing guidelines to open hotels and restaurants so it's a really mixed picture around the country depending on where each state is at not
1:06 pm
just with its cases but also the political will to impose restrictions given the toll that the national lockdown had on the economy in the hundreds of millions of daily wage and a sense that that's that's the balance that state governments are trying to meet with the national government it has no appetite for imposing a national lockdown again elizabeth khurana that for us live in new delhi thank you very much for that update. well as we mentioned the border between a strain has 2 most populous states is closing on tuesday the new south wales premier says the decision was not taken lightly we have done mispriced on health advice and especially given the fact that when our nation had those hard number of cases back in february and march the vast majority of those prices were from overseas travel is illiterate hometowns what is happening in victoria is very different which is why we tried to take east necessary states we would have taken
1:07 pm
the stand on this we absolutely had to. gauge sent us this update from the capital canberra. there have been some people speculating about what happened during quarantine there when people did return from the ses but it has happened as well as restrictions have been easing across the country is generally has been very successful up until now really to suppress that 19 which means that shops have started to reopen public gatherings have returned and this is when we have seen a huge but in cases in specific pockets of the city of melbourne and the victorian premier daniel andrews gave an update a short time ago and he said that they had been 127 new cases reported in the states or even not on sunday now that he's like the biggest jump in cases that victoria has seen since the start of this hand demick which is why many different
1:08 pm
social distancing measures have now returned so dozens of suburbs now returning to strict social distancing measures but also 3000 paypal stuck at least 5 days if not more in 9 public health and towers in melbourne that means i can't leave their homes for the next 5 days until the government makes another decision on what will happen well intensive care units are filling up and colombia's capital as case a sad that and doctors are worried that many deaths are going on reported our correspondent on a sunday reports from bogota. coffin scaring the bodies of covered 19 victims arrive for cremation at this cemetery on the outskirts of bogota the recent increase in the number of deaths in the colombian capital has meant cremation service is tripled here in the last couple of weeks. funeral workers say it's
1:09 pm
a sad situation for the relatives who can't give their loved ones a proper goodbye. people are helpless they see their lives entering the hospital 1520 days before and never see them again until they meet us in the closed coffin of. columbia's reopening of important sectors of the economy in june following a strict quarantine seems to be responsible for a sharp rise in hospitalizations. intensive care units are now 80 percent full in the national government but new ventilators to increase availability but a lack of trained doctors means not all of them can be used at the same time and now authorities are worried by a sharp surge along colombia's caribbean coast soldiers and police in full protective gear or on the streets of the port city of butler in kenya to enforce quarantine measures. the atlantic of provinces registered almost double the number
1:10 pm
of deaths compared to begin with only one 3rd of the population. authorities say here people have been more openly flouting social distancing rules holding parties in other gatherings and doctors fear some 1000 related deaths are not being reported dozens of. patients dying at home or arriving at the hospital dead are not being included in the statistics but from feedback from families and clinics it is clear that the person died of corona virus and we are not reporting it. the sharp upturn in colombia still pales in comparison with some neighboring countries like brazil this very worrisome especially since health authorities say we're still weeks away from reaching the peak of infections and the government is excluding the return to stricter measures saying it's time to revive the country's battered economy leaving much of the responsibility in the hands of people wearing
1:11 pm
face masks and maintaining social distance alyson them just you. know hundreds of scientists say there's now evidence that covert 19 is airborne 239 experts and 32 countries are publishing an open letter to the world health organization saying the virus can spread through small apostles in the end they want the w.h.o. to update its recommendations on how the virus infects people but the agency is resisting the mounting evidence saying that it's unconvincing. maintains that covert 1000 spreads primarily from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth we cannot speak to simon clarke is an associate professor in cellular microbiology at the university of reading and he joins us now on skype from there simon just to begin can you explain the strength of the evidence that we're looking at here and talk us through the seeming resistance we're seeing from the. well the
1:12 pm
more people have studied transmission of this coronavirus occluded 90 the more evidence they've come up with to suggest that it is spread further than the one beat the world health organization has said all along that people need to stand away from one another in order to to reduce their risk of picking up the infection there is and has been for some time now increasingly what eleventh's to suggest that up to 70 says it can be exposed to the virus and that's because it's so if their eyes in that models it is handy at a much finer spirit the droplets than the large ones will kind of who i say should has has been looking out and has been worried about the world health organization's justification perhaps is that just because you were exposed to a virus doesn't mean you're exposed to enough of it cools an infection so the longer reaches of a cough or sneeze with
1:13 pm
a finer particles of risperidone droplets carrying virus will be found you may not be exposed to any effects of stoves to enough virus to cause an infection so just because you're exposed to a virus doesn't mean you're exposed to enough of it to enough of it to be infectious saw but here in this case if the virus is add on that potentially could be a real focus then on additional precautions right like wearing masks and daws better ventilation f.l. doesn't that's especially as we see now economies are reopening this could all presumably have a huge impact on the ongoing spread of the virus so given the stakes is that not an argument to err on the side of caution. possibly of course but if you tell everybody to keep away from $100.00 several beats that's that's going to grind the economies of countries around the world to a halt what needs to be done is that it have proper evidence probably clarity on
1:14 pm
where the risk lives are and what the risks are if we're going to say the mosque where it's more important seems likely that the best mosques are only going to be the ones that the useful because we know that cloth face covering or a surgical mask probably isn't going to stop tiny tiny microscopic particles i mean the virus is small of the wavelength of light go straight through it what might well spot that is much more likely to do so in 95 there are more effective ones then the ones where evidence actually exists for them but i'm having an effect. where we might also see changes activation existence absolute systems and the filters that are used on those if any used top and of course how frequently they need to be changed so the effects that are actually systems have on the spread of the virus is another area these the investigative so that presumably that little
1:15 pm
really only take place if the w.h.o. acknowledge this and changed its guidance and i know this was raised by the w.h.o. by expert says back in april i think 36 ex-pats raised it with them then and critics have been saying that debates over policy is at the w.h.o. can really be dominated by individuals rather than than taking the whole tape into account and also then having. on the side of conservatism is there an argument some structural reforms that might need to take place. what you've got to remember is that the world health organization is just a party of vice governments and governments make rules and governments are free to take their own advice and to ignore or say he did advice is given to them by the will help organize ation so if individual governments the world health organization is coming to its its view you know a proper way that it's incumbent upon them to do their own theory and many many governments do that they do just that. here in the u.k.
1:16 pm
i would say we'll tell you who guys ations advice is just one piece of advice that the government takes into consideration when it's forming it's rules and regulations so yahoo where there are all sorts of political discussions going on all the time about effectiveness and governance and procedures that in both of my station really need to be to governments better in mind so i saw some last i do want to ask you about this letter i mean we're talking 239 ex-pats 32 countries and there was the face moss debacle where the w.h.o. resisted changing their advice and then they eventually did so let me ask you within the medical community is there a sense that the w.h.r. isn't lagging behind the science and how much credibility does the agency actually have among medical experts right now. credibility amongst the experts well occupancy you are asked if you have half a dozen doctors and scientists that really you know get 7 right things so that the
1:17 pm
idea that the everybody conforms to one monolithic piece just does not water on the great there will always be sent there will always be disagreement sides but since that's a healthy thing this that causes people to stop and think about things like us who are who i say should does take a. conservative look small see you on this because any o. person can come along and start making trades and they do so. people need to be a bit more careful i think simon countdown associate professor of cellular microbiology at the investor of reading many went to go inside town out of their thanks for joining us mr carro. well there's plenty more ahead for you this news hour including. we still have to let the world to know that now is the time to spam a phone call hong kong's pro-democracy activist joshua long the peasant court accused of organizing an illegal protest last year. and iran says that as days fire
1:18 pm
at the natanz nuclear site caused significant damage to the valves to rebuild. and support peace will be here with all the action from usually way into milan made to pay for damages to. the 3 high profile hong kong activists have appeared in court charged with organizing an illegal protest last year that trio intuited pro-democracy leader just one who denied the charges his political party disbanded last week off to china imposed a controversial national security you know on hong kong he said activists would be prime targets of the norwich fans any activity that beijing considers subversive outside the court he said protest as should not get on with the race of our personal safety with
1:19 pm
a friend of life sentence that we might be worried and also. by beijing but we also encourage the war global community to let voice be heard in the world once we still have any possibility we still hope to let the world to know that now is the time to spend with home and now is the cry for home home and keep our momentum well let's speak to sara correspondent who's in hong kong for us sara today's hearing is about what happened in court today. they were the charges were related to an incident last year this is during the height of the anti extradition in the anti-government protests in hong kong it was outside the police headquarters now these 3 agnes chow ivan lamb of course joshua wang they've been charged with inciting organizing and participating in this particular assembly which was deemed illegal by the police now i should state that joshua young and ivan lamb they're pleaded not guilty about agnes child has it all
1:20 pm
those charges but agnes child has proven guilty to inciting and taking part in that particular legal assembly so what they do on a rival they certainly appear defiant they've called on hong kong was too rich to continue their fight for democratic reform but they've also acknowledged or considered that they're concerned about these national security laws which were introduced in hong kong last week they do fear that their participation in various activities of the last year could put them at risk and as a result they said they could be extradited to china as a result but as you heard in that that's not there that quote from joshua one he's calling on international help the international community to stand with hong kong but they did sound defiant despite the risks and the threats of these newly introduced national security laws now all these 3 members are up for the 3 people are members of demister and this is the pro-democracy group which disbanded on the eve of the july 1st introduction of these national security laws and we also have night the law he was one of the founders he's already fled hong kong because he
1:21 pm
conceded he fights risk of life in prison or certainly imprisonment under these new laws but these 2 agnes chow and joshua and i have to stay in hong kong to face these criminal hearings but both concede they do face an uphill battle uphill battle ahead stay with us there because i do want to ask you about a development that we're seeing on the mainland china has detained a law professor who strongly criticized president xi jinping over the pandemic and his efforts to consolidate power in an essay titled viral alarm when shiri overcomes fear she's young roun wrote the cause of all the is lies ultimately is the axis. that's a reference to xi jinping and the cabal that surrounds him and began with the imposition of stern bans on the reporting of accurate information about the virus which have to embolden deception at every level of government well sarah and surprisingly little details coming out of china about this arrest what do we know so far we do not have
1:22 pm
a number of sources confirm that he has been arrested and put in his friend's arms watch situ received a phone call from police in sichuan saying that he'd been arrested for soliciting prostitution and he was reportedly taken away by more than a dozen police from his residence in beijing and his friends say that he'd be put under house arrest from in beijing from around a few days before so between june 30th and july for when they had gone to his house to a welcome his release but as a result they found he'd been already been arrested now a bit of background about him as a prominent legal scholar he had a publisher in new york published a number of his articles which were critical of the communist party is paying and his friends think that might have triggered he's a wrist his friend said by say that he confirms arrest but they've also confirmed he was suspended by his university in 2019 and it was after publishing an article once again critical of the government that can i also add on the earlier discussion about the arrests made in hong kong and charges as well in the court appearances here in hong kong monday we've also had the 1st person charges certainly appear in
1:23 pm
court a based on the charges of inciting terrorism inciting secession under these new national security laws and his lawyer has said that hong kong is now facing its darkest hour sarah clarke there in hong kong for us will continue monitoring the situation very closely thanks erin. beijing has accused washington of sending warships to the disputed south china sea to provoke tension between the countries in the region the u.s. says its 2 navy aircraft carriers have been conducting military exercises since saturday china says the u.s. is deliberately trying to show off its military power. now iran is now admitting that thursday's fire at its natanz nuclear facility caused significant damage its atomic energy organization says the damage could slow development of centrifuges used to enrich uranium but terror on says it's planning to update the facility with even more advanced equipment saying he has. what exactly happened at the natanz nuclear facility last week it's
1:24 pm
a question people in iran and around the world have been asking since a fire was reported at iran's main uranium enrichment facility on thursday a fire incident like this at the centerpiece of the country's nuclear program is easily a cause for global concern but iranian leaders downplay the incident latest satellite imagery however seems to show the scale of the damage whatever the cause is bigger than initial reports seemed to suggest on sunday the spokesman of the atomic energy organization of iran confirmed the seriousness of the matter speaking to state news he said enrichment activities continue but the damage was significant enough to slow some work at the facility this incident may create delays in the medium term plan for the development and production of advanced machines god willing we will compensate in such a way that the capacities at the site will be greater than before. the natanz nuclear plant has been the target of cyber attacks in the past at the time iran blamed various western nations and israel iranian investigators say they know what
1:25 pm
caused the latest incident but cannot release details due to security concerns but military leaders have promised to retaliate if sabotage is confirmed the incident at natanz happened just days after another explosion at a military base where iran develops missiles on june 26th a gas tank explosion at the parchin military complex northeast of the capital caused a fireball so big some to her own residents could see it from their homes on june 30th a fire and explosion at a medical clinic in north to her own killed 19 people. on saturday a fire broke out at a power station in the western city of laws causing partial outages on the same dale chlorine gas leak at a petrochemical plant on the gulf coast injured 70 people these were likely just industrial accidents perhaps triggered by rising summer temperatures but the fire at the natanz nuclear complex happened in the backdrop of serious incidents that have rattled the country in recent weeks. now malawi's

1:39 pm
the kind of graven image the groups like i still have destroyed a sack religious the goal of the museum is to preserve endangered art like this and in afghanistan where many people can't come to the museum to bring the museum to them. and the project is one part education one part cultural preservation and the kind of efforts to a race known islamic cultural heritage that occurred when the taliban blew up these massive 6th century buddhist figures that bombing. the factional happen in the village if because of the lack of knowledge of voting both of the city. with the taliban actively seeking a return to power the replicas recreated in a university of chicago lab or also insurance that whatever happens to the original objects of art crafted on afghan soil the country's historical artifacts will not be erased john hendren al jazeera chicago. now the oscar winning italian film
