you need you and other hospitals in similar circumstances right now what do you need and who can provide it. so 1st of all you need oxygen supplies assured options a place that in. getting to monitor oxygen is at the premium many people are black marketing as well but it's in short supply oxygen cylinders and oxygen and it saves . us and she'll make decisions. medicines which are normally so many essential insulated. we don't have any stocks. of stocks but even simple a.b.c. . so the 1st thing that we are asking is. by machines and oxygen supplies if it is possible. even the more dependable in the market at this moment are you actually asking for
international help i mean i don't think i have the longest time to put it to actually inviting the government. to decide but i am sure the government is listening to us and if we can get the short supplies of walks in. life support machines then make decisions many more patients than now many of the patients. the hospitals they are nor different to get because of the shortage of these critical docs and supplies so what you're saying the oxygen supply is that in the country just not getting it is that correct. yeah just the issues there is lenders are short. some states have more options of life and some are very short so. the. engine works in some places but other parts of the. folks in some places well

a potential candidate to deliver exactly that and to allow for cross border payments directly into china so she said that she was following the advice of her own advisors who also were criticized here. quite clearly also defending one of her key advisers mr. wife allegedly also had some business dealings in china so compliance issues were raised as well it was quite historic moment really because i'm going to machall was very much on the defensive here. so what this means for angela marco especially for her legacy she says she's not going to be. longer. well it could leave a huge question mark hanging over what it meant to have access to have because one of the former ministers to it's a good back the former defense minister spoke with her personally just before she
traveled to china 2019 and that issue was raised she denies that this immediately led to her taking on the whole wire card issue that this was something that came from the advisers who really were much more knowledgeable on the substance matter but it could at the very least leave a question mark hanging over her legacy and the question of access in compliance what is has already sparked is an overhaul of these financial watchdog the bow if in and there are also questions about how independently it acted and whether it was really fit to do what it's supposed to do which is preventing these kind of incidents like the wire card failure with. chief political ads i thank you so much hundreds of mourners have joined the funeral of dante wright's the 20 year old black man who was shot dead by police during
