12:02 am
a record rise according to the world health organization nearly $10000.00 people have died in that same period the biggest spike since the end if april across the planet the virus has killed more than 635000 people more than a 5th of those fatalities are in the us the world's worst hit country a new hot spots in the south and west have pushed the infection count past 4000000 light america has also recorded more than 4000000 cases. more than 176000 people have died we'll get more on the outbreak in latin america with john homan in just a moment he's joining us from mexico city but 1st let's bring in andy gallagher he is joining us from miami and the bleak number as some they were w.h.o. and in factions in the u.s. are continuing to rise. they are particularly bleak numbers considering when you think that the world health organization is now saying 5000 people are dying every
12:03 am
single day across the world that figure in june was 4600 of course here in the state of florida the numbers keep growing for about the past 2 weeks we've had at least 10000 new cases each and every day that tops out at 15000 on july the 12th the fatality rate is edging ever closer towards $6000.00 are now fresh concerns about this state's over $65.00 population is from within the last few minutes the federal authorities of announce that they will be placing quick testing machines in 23 counties because the death rate here is simply sell i am among the elderly now the state is also turning to isolation centers for elderly people who contract covert 19 let's just see what that policy is all about. the coronavirus pandemic has taken a heavy toll on florida's elderly residents a staggering majority of the fatalities here are those 65 and older and with an
12:04 am
expansive network of assisted living facilities and nursing homes the danger for seniors is serious like other states around the nation florida is turning to isolation centers for the elderly the state now has more than 2 dozen of them that is and to prevent the spread of covert 19 patients the attention they need and free up space in the state's already strained hospitals is covert nursing homes are places where a hospital could discharge safely or long term care resident who's covered positive also has a place where if there is infections inside a long term care facility a long term care facility consent of the coven only facility in a state ravaged by the pandemic the bay oaks retirement home in miami is an exception there would be no coronavirus cases here but if any resident falls ill stassi isolation is a good option i think it's a great idea so if somebody has it they should be in a place where they can be monitored by professionals who are experienced whatever
12:05 am
limited or experienced people have now is a terrible disease for the past 2 weeks in florida the number of new daily cases has hovered around 10000 miami has now mandated the wearing of masks but in other parts of the state those who can easily spread the virus are ignoring medical advice the number of cases among those who work with the elderly has also risen sharply but some experts say isolating elderly patients who contract covert 19 may not be the best thing one of the things not often talked about during this pandemic is the mental health aspect of living through these difficult times many elderly residents on to live to see relatives social interaction is in many places not allowed and moving those who are infected with covert 19. may be detrimental to all involved those who specialize in geriatric care say isolation and patient transfers has its drawbacks many residents are very confused by the situation and with
12:06 am
perhaps all timers or dementia may not understand fully what's going on and why are they no longer being visited every day by by relatives around 20 percent of florida's population is over the age of $65.00 but even in communities like the villages where people are 55 and older cases have put drupal since the beginning of the month while isolation units for those who fall ill as seen as a good strategy risks remain for the state's older population whether they live in care facilities or not. now as for the state's approach to tackling the pandemic it remains a patchwork of different policies you've got the governor rod to scientists point blank refusing to talk about re closing businesses or going back to phase one and then here in miami dade county which is the worst affected county in the entire state the measure of miami has now put a curfew in place and also a mandatory mask policy that's been reinforced by over 40 police officers the one
12:07 am
handing out tickets to people that don't wear masks but the problems here remain huge there is the other big issue of schools reopening next month that is something that the governor is also pushing for as well as president donald trump they want to get children back into schools but there are many concerns for people like dr anthony found of the center for disease control saying look we just don't know enough about children how they're affected how they might spread it and also the effect on the teaches and school staff who will be in these schools at the same time so a lot of questions need to be answered here in the state of florida and a lot of people looking for guidance from the governor but so far he isn't budging on his stance of not closing businesses and also not reconsidering closing schools all right andy thank you for that update from miami. well the mayor of the mexican capital has warned of her resurgence and coronavirus cases mexico city has been the epicenter of the country's outbreak let's not bring in john home and for more on
12:08 am
that so what's prompted this warning by the mayor. well there's been a lot of businesses shops and restaurants have been very gradually opening up in mexico city over the last few weeks it's been said that the capital has been getting this more under control but the daily count for corona virus cases in terms of the whole country has actually kept going up we have a daily record in the last figures that were announced last night so this is far from over in terms of a national scale and that's something that the coronavirus saw here is called. tell me said to us by mid july nationally this should be going down admits crew should be getting this so under control so it's obviously not happening and as the mexico city may say she's also worried now that mexico city itself has been opening up there be some sort of resurgence in the cases now there's another worry here as
12:09 am
well apart from what we can record it resurgence because nationally as i've said the numbers keep going up still but that's about the economy here now the international monetary fund estimates that mexico's economy is going to shrink by more than 10 percent just this year and in april 12 1000000 people had already lost their income some of them temporarily and some of them probably permanently in the country so it's a real problem for mexico take a look at our piece now of the people being affected. after 25 years this is the last day of sylvan and this is shot through the looking glass 3 months without a so you dream it's because look dumb for it but. the cheat is that i and everyone who went to me have a profound love of books for us it's a big hit losing the shop that's maintained me and 20 star. in light of the world economies are suffering but the code 19 full now could be about to hit mixed code
12:10 am
particularly hard the scenes in this book should begin to be playing out in a lot of other businesses in mexico in the coming weeks and months the un 2nd amik commission for latin america estimates that half a 1000000 businesses are going to close in the country as a result of the coronavirus crisis. the economy's going to shrink more than in any of the of the 4 major nations in latin america estimates the international monetary fund it says that a big stimulus package is the answer but president under his money well lopez obrador refused to roll one now. he's wary of debt and he's relying mostly on small loans for some businesses and topping up already existing social programs to get through this it's time objective and we have started to promote the economic recovery we are pushing for the creation of 2000000 new jobs. an economist says that job claim is misleading you are losing
12:11 am
a high quality job we've placing it we spark to keep baiting in a social programs and then or threaten. it it's like we are creating jobs why is the president doing that why isn't he i'm painting a bigger stimulus package he is some of the fat in these and he saw how on 3 when in the. very high public there. no i don't want that we have to walk in and not really. at least now mitts because shops and restaurants are reopening because the country comes out of the quarantine but the virus is far from b. . and even on her 1st day back in her sweet shop you did a son a brace he's already worrying about what happens if customers keep staying away. not by the look of the sea and korea because monkey epp and they can't hold outs
12:12 am
but maybe for another month but no more. than they were in the same situation hoping things get better. for others like silver and through the looking glass it's already too late. and john how does the situation over in mexico compared to other countries in the region. well latin america is one of the epicenters at the moment to covert it came here later obviously than europe but it's really taken off one of the countries actually that to some it's been surprise to the extent that it's been affected is peru it has the 6th highest number of cases worldwide and when you take into account that it's only got a population of about 32000000 it's really been hit hard that country as well as opened up since the start of this month but a lot of people have been saying the government was very early there with quite strict quarantine measures but a lot of those apparently were ignored by members of the population and that's
12:13 am
possibly why seeing such a rate of infections at the moment now when we talk about latin america we have course have to mention brazil which is 2nd only to the united states in the number of infections and brazil's president himself j. able so not oh he has corona virus has been diagnosed with it but that hasn't stopped him in recent days getting out about feeding him you like birds in his palace and also stopping to speak apparently to ground stuff in the palace there's been from the start it's been pretty clear that his prioritize the economy over corona virus and over the cases in that country he said that it's just a little flu at times at times you say it's inevitable that a lot of people are going to get it we've just got to get on with things and open up the economy it remains to be seen whether that's contributed a lot of people think it almost definitely has to the 84000 people in that country have now died of coronavirus as it starts as well along with the rest of the region
12:14 am
to open up even as that continues to be a lot of cases here all right john heilemann thank you for that reporting from mexico city. in europe covert 1000 is resurging in spain and france french citizens are now advised not to travel to the spanish region of catalonia which has recorded more than 8000 cases in the past fortnight so france is warning that its own outbreak may be accelerating reporting a $1130.00 cases in the last 24 hours. while the leader of europe's worst affected country has admitted he could have done things differently the british prime minister boris johnson has been criticized for acting too slowly to stop the corona virus outbreak which has killed more than 45000 people he says his government failed to understand how the virus was spreading among those who showed no symptoms but when you look back at this crisis everybody can see that this was
12:15 am
something that was new that we didn't understand in the way that we would have liked in the 1st few weeks and months and i think probably the single thing that we didn't see the beginning was the extent to which it was being transmitted a symptomatically from from person to person well south african police have used stun grenades and the water canon against protesters sin cape town. workers in the hospitality industry say their revenue is falling and they want coronavirus restrictions to be lifted even further south africa once had one of the world's strictest lock downs but the government has been loosening it under economic pressure the country has the worst hit in the african continent and it has more than 408000 cases that's the 5th highest in the world more than 6000 people have died. coming up on the al-jazeera news hour.

12:17 am
she applied for her american visa it's the latest in a series of diplomatic disputes between washington and beijing so the u.s. is warning china against it for its retaliation after beijing ordered the american consulate in the city of chengdu to be shut down that order was in direct response to the closure of china's consulates in houston the trumpet ministration says it was part of a massive spy network but the superpowers are clashing on a range of other issues as well including donald trump's accusation that china is responsible for the coronavirus pandemic the white house has also been a furious critic of the new security law in hong kong along with china's territorial claims in the south china sea castro joining us from maryland so a number of arrests in recent days as the white house pressure has beijing heidi. that's right daryn and due in court very shortly is this chinese researcher who has
12:18 am
been accused of hiding her membership in the chinese military and coming to the united states posing as a researcher in order to gain trade secrets and research secrets to bring back to china this researcher tons you and she was holed up in hiding inside the chinese consulate in san francisco for the recent days that was after she had been questioned by f.b.i. agents and that stand up before she exited the consulate for her arrest that was one of the contributing factors to the u.s. ordering the closure of china's consulate in houston texas now that consulate is also at the center of some espionage accusations which china denied but in this tit for tat battle we saw trying to retaliate by ordering the closure of the american embassy in chengdu and accusing american officials there of interfering interfering with china's internal politics and heidi the question is how the situation is going to involve in the coming days and even months. right and of
12:19 am
course so much is at stake here this is the world's largest economies together making up 40 percent of the global economic output in the fear is that this is ratcheting up to another cold war in a time when the global economy least needs it and we've seen president trump increasingly using china as the scapegoat in trying to defer attention away from his own troubled response to the coronavirus epidemic in the u.s. you see him referring to the corona virus as the china virus repeatedly before the press corps and before his rallies the question is how much of that is politically motivated and of course there are the greater tensions at play that are far greater than simply try. campaign as you mentioned the trade tensions with the trade deal still having many trade sanctions in place of course we have the military issues as
12:20 am
well in the south china sea and the humanitarian concerns with china crackdown in hong kong and over the weaker muslims so certainly there is much at stake here as many fear that because of these tip for tat exchanges that they're building up into a wall of tension that may be insurmountable for these 2 nations sounds like it ok heidi thank you very much for that update from maryland will katrina you isn't showing doing she says that china is winning the u.s. for the row. we're here in downtown tendu and this is the new as consulate and there are a lot of policemen here the product doesn't police officers also are monitoring the crowds this entire street has been blocked off because since the chinese foreign ministry made the announcement that the u.s. consulate here would have to close but the desks are allowed to go by and there quite a few of them passing by taking photos taking selfies it's become quite a tourist destination now china hasn't said exactly why it's targeting this consulate all it said though is that there are some u.s.
12:21 am
officials who work here with they say have been engaged in activities that are not consistent with their capacity we also know that it's quite significant operation to the southwest of china deals with us this is nearby acts as an active listening post for events taking place and it's a bet now the chinese foreign ministry has said that they do not want to do this they did not want to have to close the consulate here but they were false by the u.s. one year china's top diplomat has laid the blame for the worsening ties between time and u.s. completely at the foot of washington and he says that it's up to washington now to mend and rebuild those ties and china says if the u.s. does not pull back from decision to close the embassy the consulate in texas that china will have no choice but to hit back measure for measure. or the trumpet ministration as loosening restrictions to allow more drones to be sold to foreign countries the white house says it's reinterpreting a weapons agreement signed between $34.00 nations during the cold war so it means
12:22 am
that armed american drones can now be sold to unstable governments that were earlier for britain from buying them shimon rights activists warned this could fuel instability in hot spots including the middle east and south asia. ofter failing to get backing from congress president donald trump has signed for executive orders to try and lower prescription drugs prices one order allows for a cheaper prescription drugs to be imported while in. other means the lowest possible price should be passed on to patients it also includes a measure to lower insulin costs for low income patients the president claimed has moved patients before lobbyists and said drug companies had asked for a meeting to discuss price cuts it's a world famous architectural treasure revered by both christians and muslims now turkey's hagia sophia has gone from museum to mosque hosting its 1st friday prayers in nearly 86 years but it's changed several times since it was built 1500 years ago

12:26 am
consolidate his power in the ruling party and fend off potential rivals to his leadership. the real opposition is among the conservative community itself that's going to change the balance in power hockey a severe has a meaning in the conservative historical consciousness that's why when you support the hagia sophia you address 65 percent of the turkish electorate saying that i am defending all calls but this only has an impact on the marginal knowing person not . an opinion poll this month showed 43 percent of turks saw the mosque controversy as a way for john to avoid discussion of turkey's troubled economy some of our dance former allies agree but for both domestic and foreign tourists they're enjoying seeing you around the new look architectural treasure for your charge because although al-jazeera stumble. let's bring in emirate chala sky and he's a research fellow at the foreign policy center here in london thanks very much for your time with us on the al-jazeera news hour so where do you stand on the side of

12:28 am
now in a position of opening i just a few miles and the turret are gone is a new vision for turkey turkey become what i thought norma sort of indigent and is more powerful i would say turkey has almost become like an imperial state their fingers are to one cares. about some criticism that is received internationally because of this move. i don't think he does because if he's in it in a good position actually to make this move i mean depression on coming from europe or the from the united states had lowered significantly due to different factors such as call it a crisis but also became more powerful in took talk to x. and also in his region comparing to 2 years turkey become more assertive in cities and from these to turn to libya fauntleroy to syria and how damaged the consulate is partner and key to the address the 65 per cent of the society when he enters

12:35 am
and 77 classic to inspect a key engine part after 4 reports of sudden engine shutdowns the f.a.a. said it was issuing the urgent directive to address corrosion of the engine bleed air 5th stage check valves for both engines which could result in compressor stalls and jewel engine power loss without the ability to restart which could result in a forced off airport landing the warning applies to any 737 that's been in storage for at least a week and given the number of extra aircraft grounded by the pandemic it's thought to apply to thousands of 70 sevens in dozens of fleets worldwide it's going to cause a bit of rights you can't seriously i imagine i mean shit lee this trailer down in the aviation 'd will help the rest of it in as much as it is only cross. our thanks. and it's not as if he's
12:36 am
a major structural aeration issue but engineering stuff like engine bells is something that you wouldn't know about until you had a problem the boeing 737 is one of the most successful commercial jets of all time with a good safety record but the warnings a major setback for a company that struggle to regain trust after the grounding of its 737 max and craft following 2 fatal and crashes within 5 months these latest concerns to not apply to the 737 max the aviation industry's been badly bruised by covert 19 in may u.s. airlines said they were collectively losing more than $10000000000.00 in cash a month while boeing said sales of its craft were at their lowest in 60 years. al-jazeera. let's discuss this further with seth kaplan he's a transport analyst for w b u r radio he's joining us from washington hi there thanks for your time with us on the news hour how concerning is the statement going to be for all the airlines that
12:37 am
own and fly the 737 well as we heard there from the kind of a double edged sword here right on one hand the bad news is that this happens when planes are grounded on the other hand the good news is the point is that they're grounded and so it is much less disruptive to the traveling public then would a grounding or a series of inspections be in normal times but no question you know this is it airline industry it's trying to restore confidence among the flying public in the act of flying and headlines like this don't help although fortunately in this case obviously it's been caught before and it was heard here is so can we expect then disruptions or can we expect this to have an impact on operations probably not precisely because of just how much slack there is right now in airlines schedules we've seen in the past when something's gone wrong with a particular fleet type you know if it happens especially at a peak travel time which normally but it would be right now right the middle of the
12:38 am
summer in the northern hemisphere every plane pressed into service it can cause disruptions but in this case the reality is that the whole point is that these planes are parked that seems to be why the scrutiny is happening and so the airlines are going to be able to do these inspections without any impact on their operations you were mentioning trust a moment ago in the airline industry and this is particularly bad for boeing is that not after. they've had a series of p.r. disaster is in the pos few months. yeah the boeing 737 max of course needless to say which should have been in the air already for a couple of years here grounded yeah you know it will be 2 years if it's not back in service by march of this coming year unbelievable you know it was 1st grounded following those 2 fatal crashes people said well it's going to be weeks or months before it's flying again here soon to be years plural so you're right all kinds of issues for boeing different issues that it ever imagined that when the maxus was
12:39 am
grounded the point was that airlines didn't know what to do with these planes that they very badly wanted and needed right now boeing has all these planes on the ground in the case of the max is that in many cases airlines don't want anymore and now this latest setback albeit one related to these engines we should say you know the competing air bus 320 has 2 kinds of engines 737 only has this one and one of them is similar to some kind of curious to see if any similar issues pop up with those older a $320.00 s which have an engine that that's rather similar to this one on the some of the recent so we're expecting i mean is that what you're keeping an eye out on next well it's something to watch for sure you know what we know for now is that this has happened apparently 4 times that the f.a.a. is aware of on 730 seven's as far as anybody knows but i would think that airlines that fly those a $320.00 s the ones that have the same engine it's made by a consortium that involves g.e.
12:40 am
