1:01 pm
reimpose is a quarantine on anyone coming in from spain catching travelers off guard. a mostly peaceful protest turns into a crackdown by the police and federal officers in portland oregon. and the painstaking process of restoring the acropolis in athens as the greek government renews its call for britain to return its ancient treasures. and i'm santa how much now have all the sports a big day for you event is the syrian leaders that have the chance to wrap up a nice stated league title. there we are let's get going we begin this with the coronavirus pandemic which is spreading further and faster every day it took the world 2 weeks to get from 1000000 to 2000000 cases it's taken just 4 days to make the leap from 15000000 to
1:02 pm
16000000 that's according to the u.s. based johns hopkins university let's just have a look at what they are saying you can see there the number of top left 16055909 top write in white global deaths edging towards 645000 let's just zoom into the map for you as well a sea of red america there clearly the most affected worst affected country any place in the world. at this point in the month of july let's think about the month of august let's just show you the global trend there you can see it march may july the key question now is what direction what trend will that line maintain through the rest of july into august well the u.k. government has now reimposed 2 weeks of self-imposed quarantine on people returning from spain following a coronavirus outbreak there. has that story. an unexpected
1:03 pm
change of plans hours before boarding a flight from spain back to the u.k. these tourist traveller and they'll have to quarantine for 14 days on arrival the country was taken off britain say travel on saturday and the measure took effect at midnight we had a wedding to go to and we help plans to visit friends and family that we haven't seen in about a long time and not like i have to cancel all those plans so it's really quite upset the sudden reversal follows a surge of covert 19 infections in spain we cry for straight to be honest because it fails to feel safer in spain what it did when we left the u.k. . before we left the u.k. it wasn't monday it's rough ice mass in a lot of places. but nearly everybody is wearing them so. many of the new infections in spain are among young people showing mild or no symptoms lockdowns were imposed in some areas and barcelona bars said curfews and
1:04 pm
many nightclubs closed the tourism industry in spain accounts for about 12 percent of the country's economy and it's again her pairing for a downturn more than 20 percent of its foreign visitors last year were british and now france is recommending people traveling there. so far we've had no cancellations but this may create doubts for people over the coming weeks i hope there are fewer cases but a lot of the. cast to be done. the sudden reimposition of restrictions is a reminder to many that even though some walked down measures here recently relaxed a pandemic appears to be far from over. and something in his ear. ok we have al jazeera people at both ends of this story if you will this hour here on the news hour in a moment we'll talk to my al-jazeera colleague restylane who arrived in spain just after just after the u.k. quarantine rules were announced 1st let's go to 19 barber who's at london's gatwick
1:05 pm
airport there south of the british capital so clearly nadeem there are probably people there in the terminal as of right now who haven't heard this news and they're thinking oh we're going on holiday it's going to be fabby but what's the british government saying about this. with the british government on the defensive basically because this was introduced at such short notice it happened on saturday afternoon here in britain or saturday evening local time this announcement that spain was being taken off the list of so-called safe countries let's remember the nerdy june quarantine measures were introduced but then the british government announced the creation of so-called air corridor so obviously as you heard in that report british holiday makers in spain are crucial to that country's economy but let's not forget there are a large number of people here in britain who have relatives there in spain as well
1:06 pm
her so a lot of people are going there to see their loved ones as well and they're wondering why it was brought in at such short notice while the government here in britain says that they were following figures that were announced on friday in spain around 900 new covered cases new daily cases and they simply couldn't ignore that kind of data the foreign secretary has taken to the airwaves in the last couple of hours to explain why they say why they did what they did. because the cases in spain the data we got was on the friday you'll see kampala that through the course of the day it showed a big jump right across mainland spain that was then assessed yesterday afternoon and we took the decision as swiftly as we could and that we we can't make apologies to doing so we must spirit to take swift decisive action particularly in relation to. localized or internationally in relation to spain a particular country where we see we must take action otherwise we risk reinfection
1:07 pm
into the u.k. potentially a 2nd wave here and then another lock down. how much of a surprise was this nadeem when the government kind of crept that announcement out there. well it was a huge surprise. considering not only the time scale that they gave people but also the background date or again the press in spain of been making a big point about the fact that perhaps infections are just as high here as in spain according to the latest official figures the daily new cases total is in the several 100 perhaps around $700.00 here an officially though there's one survey which is estimating that it could be as high as 1800 not only that i think that people are questioning the logic that people of this blanket search quarantine in position for example. the big organization of travel agents here is suggesting that
1:08 pm
the british government should lift a quarantine rules for flights to and from certain regions with lower infection rates as well as to the bill erik islands in the canaries which are not part of mainland spain and so there is a feeling that this might be unfair even though the government stressing that they're worried all along is to avoid a 2nd wave while in spain they're saying according to the deputy emergency health director that they could be seeing a 2nd wave it's not clear the government is saying that while they respect britain's decision their country remains safer there on top of these localized outbreaks nadim thanks very much let's bring in our to 03 star and he's on the spanish island of minorca he joins us live from reese welcome to the news are you've just arrived there walk us through what the process was and specifically when did you find out that there was the quarantine when you could come back from
1:09 pm
there you'll have to go into 40 days quarantine. hi peter yes i was on the runway at dublin air force about the takeoff so at that point there was very little turning back to be honest so my father called me and just said have you seen the new measures that have been implemented. and to be honest you know i was surprised but i wasn't hugely surprised i'd seen the numbers creeping up in mainland spain and i figured this was something that could happen but i never anticipated it actually happening before it even taken off so that was quite a surprise i mean the numbers here in minorca are very low i think there's only been about 100 or so people that contracted coded since the outbreak began so it is a little bit surprising that we're going to have to quarantine as well but that that that's just what we have to deal with i suppose when you get to talk to sort of the do you think they'll have a sense of being slightly put aggrieved because dominic rob they're talking on one
1:10 pm
of the international t.v. news channels just in the past 2 hours or so talking about mainland spain but if one looks at the infection rates for the iberian peninsula those areas where northern european tourists go to not as bad when it comes to infection rates as inland as you know madrid is catalonia so they might justifiably turn around and say actually london government what are you doing. yeah i mean i can understand it would be extremely frustrating for these people i mean we were quite frustrated when we heard the news the numbers here as i've just said are very low they've implemented a very strict lock down here since the pandemic broke out a very very strict one and people have not been able to leave their houses and they've done really well it keeping the numbers down here in minorca i think you know that the death rate across the political violence i think is lower than $300.00 since this began and so i think there's only a handful of cases here in hospitals now so you know we wouldn't come here unless we thought it was safe you know we live in
1:11 pm
a world now where you know the goalposts are constantly being moved when it comes to you know the measures you have to adhere to but yeah i mean i can imagine a lot of people are going to be very frustrated because you know they would have come here and that they thought that it was a safe place to come and that they would have to take this corentin when they get home which is extremely inconvenient or you all prepped stocked up for the quarantine when you fly back into the u.k. . absolutely not no my fridge is completely empty i'm not even sure what the measures are that we have to follow when we get back i think we are allowed to go shopping for food but you know all social engagements anything that we had planned which is you know frustrating when your social diary starts to look like resembling something normal again you get told you don't have to go and take 2 weeks off from the world and sit in your flat and not go out to talk. the stream the inconvenient not to mention that i won't be able to go to work in the next 2 weeks after i'm back as well ok reece make the most of it good to talk to
1:12 pm
you thanks very much restore him or al-jazeera correspondent there in spain. as we were saying the u.s. is now recorded 73000 new infections in the past 24 hours the country's top infectious disease expert dr anthony folks she is again urging state governments to hit pause when it comes to reopening the individual states well florida texas california those 3 states remain some of the worst affected and many in florida are blaming the governor for easing those lockdown measures far too soon heidi joe castro wraps up the day's developments from maryland. the death toll in florida is rising as well and about one person in florida is dying a covert every 10 minutes and florida certainly is not alone 18 states in the united states have broken totals and as far as cases or deaths in this past week in florida it's governor rick to santa this is a heavy strong as strong supporter and he has been praised by the president even
1:13 pm
now for his response to the pandemic florida was one of the 1st states to reopen and now critics are seeing what's happening with these numbers resurging and saying that that move was prioritizing the economy over people's lives and this similar story repeated across the country much of the south now including the state of texas where along its border with mexico we're seeing dire situation with hospitals begging for more supplies the military responding there with their resources and refrigerated morgues parked behind those hospitals the same scenes we have seen in new york not so long ago unfortunately repeated now in new hot spots across the u.s. . north korea has put the border city of. seeing its worst case of coronavirus may have been brought in from south korea pictures were broadcast to kim jong un chairing a meeting to announce the measures state media says the suspected case is
1:14 pm
a defector who fled to south korea years ago before returning illegally last week south korea says it's investigating sarah clarke is following the story from hong kong she says it's unclear whether the patient was tested for corona virus. well this person who defected 3 years ago to south korea the return date back to north korea was on july 19th and he suspected or he or she is suspected of having covert 19 other reports don't indicate if he or she has had the official coronavirus test and said that the suggestion is that there's been several medical check ups showing respect for the symptoms that are linked to or a similar to those that you have with the crowd a virus that if confirmed as you mentioned this would be the 1st case officially acknowledged by north korea and i can join on has had the emergency meeting has declared a state of emergency also that border city of case one has been put into a lockdown as it was got as a result he's described it as a critical situation
1:15 pm
a report released by the state run media says it's a dangerous situation in case song that may lead to a deadly and destructive disaster now north korea has received thousands of testing kits from russia and other countries it's also had some pretty strict border closures in recent months but i believe restrictions have eased of late now the case of this particular defector the state run media saying he illegally he or she illegally crossed the demarcation line on july 19th and the politburo meeting described it in a dialogue as a loose guard performance on the frontline on that particular day and obviously an investigation into the military unit responsible will happen. argentina's government deployed thousands of security personnel in march to enforce the nationwide law to contain the coronavirus but reports of abuse and violence have been on the rise of stories about reports from when osiris was. seen demi don't says her brother knew class west killed by the police on july 9th the day he turned

1:17 pm
a lockdown to prevent the spread of colgate $9000.00 but critics say that the government has given too much power to security forces on the ground who are in charge of patrolling the streets security forces that have been involved in abuses in the past human rights groups say that at least 12 people have been either killed or disappeared by argentina security forces 22 year old. went missing in april he told his mother he was going to see his girlfriend 200 kilometers away in the province of when. he was never seen again security forces have been patrolling the area where he went missing for the past few weeks to try to find him the united nations is demanding a full investigation into what could have been an enforced disappearance human rights groups say the incidence in the past months are not isolated. this is nothing new and shows again that there is a structural problem during koren 1000 security forces acquired greater
1:18 pm
protectionism because they are in charge of hosing the lock down forming the police is a dead since argentina returned to democracy because even though there have been attempts of reform the real problems were never tackled me more are over there are the 2 police officers involved in the killing of your god on our under investigation his family is hoping justice will be served. one of us. ground still to cover for you here on the news including the anger from women in poland as the government expands its conservative social agenda. for malaria related deaths in africa could more than double this year. and in sports no signs of frost the brawn looks as dirty as ever even after a few months of basketball action coming up a little later. in about 30 minutes. protests
1:19 pm
against racism and police brutality in the u.s. city of portland oregon have been to the nines week the demonstrations started a response to the killing of george floyd in minneapolis however anger has also been growing over president donald trump's decision to send and federal agents into the city in the heart of. the. demonstrations like these have been held in portland oregon for the last 2 months. was protesters supporting the black lives matter movement demanding racial equality and an end to police brutality throughout their perpetrator to get their message across that we're not backing down our narrative i'm here for a game not a joke the 3 of you we are here complicity for. the protests intensified this week after u.s. president donald trump sent federal agents into the city organs attorney general
1:20 pm
applied for a temporary restraining order against what she described as their unconstitutional tactics but that was rejected by a federal judge local politicians and democrats in congress accuse the officers of using excessive force even still more people are joining the demonstrations have been. basically the president target to make an example of the city has absolutely brought a broader base to the to the protests where they're at the beginning then after you know a month or so of the protests we're getting a little bit smaller and this is only brought back everyone that would have been out at the beginning. federal agents were also sent to the neighboring state of washington. on saturday fighting broke out during protests in seattle doesn't. people were arrested and officers wounded. despite the criticism and unrest president said he's ready to send hundreds more federal officers to cities
1:21 pm
across the country leon harding al-jazeera. or staying in that part of the world big protest in seattle in neighboring washington state the police used tear gas their own stun grenades to cleary weeks old protests on 45 people were arrested 21 police officers injured. let's go back to europe poland is pulling out of a european treaty aimed at preventing violence against women thousands protested against the planned withdrawal in cities across the country the justice minister says the treaty violates parental rights by requiring schools to teach children about gender. is the e.u. gentleman a professor at stanford in berlin he joins us from athens welcome back to the news hour did this compromise parental rights i mean were they damaged in any way. well this is what the germans what the polish government says but i think the
1:22 pm
bigger picture focuses on something else that we are in a situation in which cold and does not simply want to follow what used to be the western liberal agenda of the european union's in-situ in 2004 and rather take some more self-confidence tends to send a conservative sicko to their conservative effective rate poland has a very divided society between the city people with a more multicultural liberal position and more small town countryside population that is christian and has a very off the docks understanding off the world doesn't travel much or knows doesn't know foreigners so this is generally speaking a signal of domestically as well as to the european union and not so much what it appears on the surface that it restricts rights of parents in schools i suppose it
1:23 pm
will be very difficult to tell in a year or 2 whether there are any big negative consequences to do with this decision because this is about stopping violence against women or making sure that violence against women doesn't happen in the 1st place so that means that somebody someplace has got to correlate the figure is at some point down the road of course and we are in a complicated situation right now to draw an impure occur conclusion from this because with unlocked own people have been much more exposed to stress within families and it was likely that this could lead to more domestic violence over there is no correlation with the legal framework the polish government says there is no one needs to comply and with the stuff we can venture off the council of europe because. already highlights that it is
1:24 pm
a no go to be family members so declaration of independence from foreign commitments or what they think is agenda ideology that interferes too much with the domestic right of poland and the right off the tree arson families to decide what to do why is the government in your opinion decided to do it in this way why pull out of an e.u. treaty instead of introducing new legislation on the one hand that's a key question but on the other hand as well i always thought that if you were signing up to all those treaties you know maastricht lisbon rome that built the european union if you signed up to those you're all in or you're all out you can't just willy nilly throw your toys out the pram when it comes to legislation that you apparently believe in. this is what we thought in the west it's the liberal agenda of the european union but now we see that governments and hungary and in
1:25 pm
poland self confidentially state that they are understanding the whole furore and what values means and what's the role of the family is and how secular the whole project should be is a subject of debate they want to different europe and they choose the timing wisely because we just finished negotiations on the largest package of saudi garry kief that was directed linked to the rule of law and the state of the mock recede and the polish delegation walked home with 160000000000 euros to keep on modernizing the country and its society and now they send a signal to the electorate like the conservative electorate we do what we want and redefine what our principles some priorities are is simple convention is not a european union convention it's a concept of your own convention it is confusing because they even share the same
1:26 pm
flag but it's an independent organization with different members so it doesn't do directly harm with the membership of the european union but you're right one would expect that potent is as committed as everybody else but the government has a slightly different interpretation of that it's ok we'll leave it the book not in athens great to talk to you as a thank you so much and clive having. to news he's president has appointed a new prime minister. has a month to form a new government any muscle so when a vote of confidence in the parliament or an election is expected to be called soon the former interior minister replaces elyas vaclav who resigned after just 5 months in office he's under investigation for conflicts of interest and shares he owns in private companies. the son of a cleric imprisoned in saudi arabia is accusing the kingdom of human rights abuses against his family solomon. is a prominent advocates of reforms in saudi arabia is son says the charges against

1:31 pm
be talking about it it can spark mass action or serve the interests of the powerful he created this moment for a photo opportunity that can obscure the truth this is a legitimate news story but this clips and the talking points were pretty i don't see how it can forge narrative all right through the listening post gives you the full picture. i was. working in asia and africa there'd be days where i'd be choosing editing my own story is in a refugee camp with no electricity and right now we're confronting some of the greatest challenges that humanity has ever faced and i really believe that the only way we can do that is with compassion and generosity and compromise because of the only way we can try to solve any of these problems is together there are so important we make those connections. war.
1:32 pm

1:33 pm
a refugee from rwanda with arson after last week's fires was damaged a 15th century cathedral the 39 year old volunteer was in charge of locking up the cathedral in normed he was initially questioned a week ago and then released he has admitted starting 3 fires which shattered stained glass windows and destroyed the organ and some pieces and some paul's cathedral. greece has made the return of the parthenon marbles from the british museum in london one of his top priorities now in the meantime a restoration project is underway to undo the damage done to the building when a british heiress to craps elden removed the sculptures in the early 19th century john reports now from athens. this marble block is being cut out to make history it will eventually form part of the parthenon where new model is being precisely chiseled to be married to surviving fragments. the reconstructed blocks will be hoisted back into the structure much of the damage to
1:34 pm
this 2500 year old temple was caused relatively recently just over 200 years ago the 7th removed dozens of sculpted panels to get to them he hoisted masonry off the roof and dashed it to the ground yeah not. to remove something you have to dismantle whatever's on top of it it's not like pulling a book off the shelf temple construction was like lego they were built from the bottom up this is why they've lasted each piece is fitted exactly to the pieces around it and that makes them earthquake resistant the sculptures formed part of the structure this quake proof technology has lasted world the ancient greeks connected each block of marble to its neighbor with. over which molten lead was poured insulated and prevent rust and for $25.00 centuries these clumps absorbed strains when blocks of marble moved against each other during earthquakes and
1:35 pm
they've kept this temple from collapsing but earthquakes have done far less damage than people even those who unlike meant well the clamps used in a 19th century restoration rusted expanded and split the surrounding marble and venetian francesco who meant to liberate athens from the ottomans 350 years ago did the most damage of all causing an explosion that ripped the parthenon open visitors are divided over how much of the original parthenon should be restored. it's better understand i think it's better when you have your imagination i would love to see exactly how. i think it would be amazing i'd love to see exactly how and maybe we have a 2nd chance that he came here i mean showing future generations what was there this restoration won't go as far as reconstruction it's a man is to heal the damage. caused greeks hope that part of that healing will
1:36 pm
eventually be the return of the sculptures that once the dorms there most sacred of monuments jumps. well greece of course is not the only country demanding the return of its national treasures others are joining the cold saying thousands of artifacts were stolen by european colonisers more than a century ago but many museums are refusing to return them the british museum in london is accused of being the largest receiver of stolen relics aside from the parthenon marbles they include bronze statues from the kingdom of beneath which is now nigeria taken by the british in 8097 the gol shield taken from aboriginal australians in the late 18th century and the resort to stone a slab with ancient hieroglyphs brought over from egypt in 1799 let's talk to you he's a professor of global history at the university of hamburg he joins us on skype i think it was 2728 c. in the french president emmanuel macro kind of half lit a debate about returning these kind of things
1:37 pm
a debate that's gone no place my question why has that debate gone no place. well i think it has shown certain you slowed down i think the french parliament passed legislation to recruit go to turn 26 sure 30 objects which is is is just as more figure compared to the 1000s of objects which were due to turnstone during colonialism i think it's going nowhere because the european museums are basically true of looted octet and the european museum when you straight to put it into after 8 that once you start a process of restitution now you can stop it and that museums will be the end kit and secondly the question of who to dot checks leads to the question of colonial legacy at large and that means where there is tube usually of burgers
1:38 pm
on earth comes from and we have 600 years of colonial exploitation to to discuss and to find a remedy for this crude use to peugeot and people shy away from in the west in europe shy away from this question who is it pardon me for interrupting you there but who is it within this dialogue that maintains the pressure to keep these artifacts in can i suggest to you the wrong place because big museums are generally run by one person ultimately and one person only that's the guy or the met the woman who's got the title museum director or is it the president and the prime minister's maybe the culture minister the culture secretary in any of these former colonial countries. i mean it did get pants on and a country in france for example. legal provision that you cannot arrest you tube
1:39 pm
and he objects once they are in and yes you know it needs. legal solution in germany it's very similar the museum directors even if they want which i doubt they wouldn't be able to rescue objects only need great great numbers so it's both the museum directors who by a professional want to keep art that have got to put politicians who don't put pressure on them or who don't create a legal frank about which makes it possible to return ok that's the the european side of the story let's talk about what we were talking about in our introduction here on the news the african side of the story of the countries that we're discussing here between nigeria we're talking about certain other countries in africa which artefact for you is the most contentious and therefore if it was returned would send precisely the right signals and would deflate this
1:40 pm
dialogue this debate that still ongoing. i mean you turned out to leave the building branches some 700 are at the british museum some 550 in berkeley and bell in this building and you must you know and wants to to exhibit those objects and they are the most famous church i think in general as you are the 1st stone or o'byrne and it's next. who should be returned to came to new york illegally and they are the most i must say are iconic i terms why is it therefore if they are that famous that iconic certain presidents and prime ministers still are quite content it seems to me to want to be on the wrong side of history because clearly they will be returned it may take 10 years it may take 50 years but there's some point they've got to go back so why not just fast forward through all
1:41 pm
