5:03 am
these beds are made from frontloading, allowing people cardboard, for a place that is to purchase tickets for future productions orfor designed to be temporary. to purchase tickets for future productions or for drinks in in a country of 1.3 billion the future, to be able to stave people, authorities are struggling to balance off this crisis for the urgent priorities. short—term. that? is how long the number of confirmed cases keeps rising to hit daily record levels. this will go for, ultimately the healthcare these menus by their nature, system is stretched. are indoors, and as such, you even so, experts say the true will see either very low scale of the pandemic is unknown. the figures are underreported. capacity or closed doors for some time yet, so whether this will be enough, it is yet to be the virus continues to spread, seen, but certainly, i think in a country that imposed one are the important thing to note of the most stringent, high—profile lockdowns is for the most part it will in the world. come in the form of grants, and it hit migrant workers what you don't want is to have particularly hard. these companies come out of this crisis laden with debt, in a nation that has been humbled by the pandemic, it seems tourism, and the taj where they will ultimately crippled by it in years in the mahal, just can't be the priority right now. future stop by the other alanna petroff, bbc news. industry that has been severely impacted as hospitality and of course in england we saw the reopening of bars and restau ra nts a nd reopening of bars and restaurants and what have you. in some places, social shortly we will be live to distancing didn't seem to be delhi for more detail on what adhered to, we have pictures of is taking place in india. the border between australia's cramped bars, people ordering two most populous states drinks at the bar when perhaps is to be closed, to guard against a spike in coronavirus they should have been seated,
5:04 am
they should have been seated, the kind of thing. give us your cases. travel restrictions between ta ke the kind of thing. give us your take on how the weekend went victoria and new south wales for england. ultimately it is a will come into effect on tuesday night. more than 30 suburbs have been locked down in the victorian capital, melbourne, which has reported another 182 cases difficult one because if you over the weekend. are thinking about the one scenario where people are at their least sensible, when they are out and have not been the victorian premier drinking or socialising to the announced the border closure after speaking to the same degree, and all of a australian prime minister sudden, you unleash everyone in and the premier this wave towards the bars, pubs, and so it is not of new south wales. necessarily surprising. the worry for the sector is the this is the best fa ct worry for the sector is the fact that those kinds of thing to do at this time, out of a sense of caution. pictures portray a part of the beyond that, if you think economy that some would say is about the resources that are needed, from a victorian point of view, to be monitoring too much of a risk, and so if and checking people just from those hot zones, we we re too much of a risk, and so if this is a much more we were to see a second wave, and uptake in cases throughout logical way of doing it. no—one enjoys doing it, different regions, that will be but it is, i think, the right step to take at this point. the first area to go, and the first area to be locked down that won't be a feature that goes on any longer than it for a secondary lockdown. very needs to. briefly, what is your outlook for the uk economy given what 0ur correspondent shaimaa khaliljoins me from sydney.
5:05 am
we have just discussed with what more can you tell us about hospitality and the arts? it's this very recent announcement? going to be a tough road, quite well, it's pretty unusual. i frankly. you have this sort of can tell you that, sally. i mean, this has been the first easy wins in terms of the time ina mean, this has been the first time in a century since the economic data over the short term, we have seen that in a border between new south wales number of countries, where you and victoria has been closed. see a significant uptick in even at the height of the terms of their economic data pandemic, in march and april, for the short term, because we're coming up such a low when other states close their base, and in the uk we have borders, those two states seen a base, and in the uk we have seen a nice strong move higher remained open to each other. so in terms of retail sales, and it kind of shows you the level for the short term we are likely to see a continuation of of anxiety and concern that the that, as we see the easing leadership has about the lockdown measures come into situation in victoria. and, play. certainly there are you? despite it being confined, if so what will happen in the you will, to those hotspots in future. is this fellow going to melbourne, there is real worry be maintained? will need to be and concern that this could maintained or will we be in a spill over to new south wales, position where businesses can operate as usual, and also a australia's most populous number of these businesses are state, which of course no—one going to know that they don't wa nts to state, which of course no—one wants to see. so despite need as many staff as they playing that scenario down previously had done, and before hearing new south wales, the prime minister saying that therefore they will find a way orders don't need to be shuts, to operate with a lower cost given how critical the base, and will that mean a situation is in victoria at the potential rise in unemployment
5:06 am
moment, now it is deemed in the future? significant necessary to close the borders questions need to be answered by for the short term we are between those two states. and likely to see a few months of why has the outbreak in melbourne got worse? there are u pta ke likely to see a few months of uptake in terms of the economic data. many significant clusters now. hong kong is known as a major global financial hub, the latest of which have been but could that be about to change? those nine tower blocks that china's sweeping national have been in complete and full security law on hong kong has the business community anxiously waiting to see lockdown, which is the first whether its implementation time it has happened in will undermine the city's role. australia. so the 36th suburbs are now in strict social hong kong's government insists distancing restrictions. they the law will be good can only go out for necessary for stability and prosperity, and london—listed banks hsbc and standard chartered have needs, but the nine tower backed its introduction. blocks have been incomplete lockdown. and this is because ofa lockdown. and this is because of a cluster of about 30 people but other international companies and some local entrepreneurs are nervous. the us has begun eliminating that have been discovered hong kong's special status, there. and now health halting defence exports authorities are really and restricting the territory's access to high—technology concerned that hundreds of people have been exposed to the cases and are now in an incubation period. they said products. that this could have explosive potential for the spread of the will business now move away? virus, and also it's very joining me now is claudia mo, pro—democracy lawmaker and member challenging when you have them of the hong kong legislative council. in tower blocks, as well. they have been described as vertical
