the plastic is a promise and this is supply in the oceans we keep plastic and obviously plastic in the human body is going to kill you so life expectancy is down banning plastic is not going to change the equation one iota because it's just too far gone so should we care or just consider that humans had a great ride why we didn't then then shuffle off our mortal coil in that house. then this is boom bust one business show you can't afford to miss branch bore down fairmont thank you in washington and here's a look at what we have in store for you today. fred of the corona virus which has
5:31 am
caused a growth business in the disease of epicenter in china but we take a broader look at both the economic and human toll of the virus and what the infection may hold the in store for the world and the recent surge in economic growth has been cooled by reports of the growing coronavirus but we take a spin around the planet to get a big picture of how international markets have been performing so much to get to so let's go ahead and dive right in. and the latest on the corona virus leads our global report today after the world health organization declared a global emergency related to the virus on thursday china's envoy to the united nations wayne kwan addressed member states in the press to give an update on the numbers of those affected by the virus reporting there are now 9809 confirmed cases in china with 1527 case the patients in critical condition now the envoy added that there are more than 15000 suspected cases now according to mr waring the number of deaths related to the. virus is unchanged at $213.00 china's permanent
5:32 am
representative of the un also spoke of the importance of the international sort of solidarity in fighting the coronavirus. to a transparent. and open. and this gospel to in promoting international cooperation we have reported to to double the chill. from the very beginning all the relevant information see. guide to this read while the united kingdom has reported the 1st 2 cases of the krona virus in their country as did russia. today diagnosed 2 patients with a new corona virus in the russian territory of the bike lie in the 2 minutes reaching. the patients are isolated and just under strict surveillance they are receiving necessary medical help both patients are chinese citizens. in an

effort to fight the spread of the virus singapore as health ministry has banned entry of all chinese visitors and those who have recently traveled to china and mongolia will also close all ports of entry to and from china until march 2nd now as we've previously reporter reported airlines have also suspended the reduced trips and out of the country the airlines on that list now include singapore airlines american delta cathay pacific thin air and turkish airlines the head of the allied pilots association which represents american airlines pilots also suggested their pilots assigned to us trying to flights should decline the assignment to err on the caution side now joining us now just because the story is she chen an assistant professor at the university school of public health professor thank you so much for joining us today i want to start with i really asking let's talk about the importance of the travel in the. situation when we're facing
5:34 am
something like there's a global health emergency how crucial is cutting off travel to and from an authority. you know that will be very important to curb all contain the disease spreading so this is a wearing part and. another analogy is to sing about. 550000000 chinese residents in. that's where similar magnetism to the travel trade and the cards are mobility and recent evidence show that the lockdown really taking if out of the reduce the. feature of this disease saw the international trade international travel card down where main also have similarly fat but that we have also to make sure this is evidence based is not only based on panic because this is exactly what the director general mentioned that with this emergency declare rhaetian the countries should now down 20 than the human travels only because
5:35 am
of a penny should be evidence based so they do not recommend substantial cut down of the troubles you know going back to the w.h.o. decision of the right there to this a global emergency what does that do to the situation how important is it for them to actually recognize this as an emergency. i think this is a crucial step towards to allow and see it as a global emergency previously only restricted to trying to now we see more and more evidence is spreading to 5. regions and these are human to human transmission emad of all countries other than china and it's a fact. those small countries much more so that's why i think as you said lance and this emergency declaration is more important to those smaller countries who are.
5:36 am
area one or a boy in their house says in response so called a nation where have those small countries well now you're saying is the coronation of these small countries but it's also happening here in the united states where we're seeing the person to person transmission of the virus how how are experts going to deal with their spread of the virus what are the steps that they're looking to counter the virus with if any. yeah. the local community many us it is the rank this as a minimal risk so they keep watching and the monitoring that situation was over there is human to human transmission by the u.s. house care system is much more prepared and they have a feel cases to star ways so it's not nothing like the china's health care system started with a world crowded or a stretch the one room of work here but the u.s. is more prepared so i think what's worrisome is according to the u.s. c.d.c.
5:37 am
there is symptomatic transmission so people without developing symptom but the already transmeta those who are us you know and i want to bring something up because you actually talk about the readiness of the u.s. system versus the chinese system now we had a guest earlier this week who has been following the situation he insinuated that the data coming out of china may not be entirely accurate when you take a listen to this. and here's the logic. behind the city 11000000 people it has at least 49000 hospital beds in it and we've all seen the videos swapped meeting rooms are people being sick in hallways that this is a medical system that's on the verge of being overwhelmed or has been overwhelmed listen if you have 2000 cases at the time the reporting is overwhelming you have about a 10 percent serious complication rate that means 200 people are in need of serious or i.c.u. bed care that's not sufficient to swamp a city with 49000 hospital beds so my rough estimate is i think it's off by an
5:38 am
order of magnitude but that's just guesswork i guess it just doesn't make sense to me to think that they got swamped by 2000 cases now china is working closely with the international community on this and what you actually just said is their system is it ready for this their system is already kind of overwhelmed prior to this so is his claim actually inaccurate based on what you just told us. yeah phone beginning the local government had the incentive to cover up but after the central government step in the quickly share the gene sequence ride with the international community and the with the with the emergency at the global level there is no incentive and no mechanism to cover up because that requires that information sharing even more transparent i think or what could happen is something mentioned the by the last speaker is. the capacity of the local health care system restricted the. ability to measure very precisely for example
5:39 am
patients who could die at home without having the chance to seek care in the hospital because there is a long line in the hospital and the care system is not a beaut and also all patients of. hospital even. still are suspected cases might not come for him so they have to become firm to case and by then there will be counted as the deaths and i sing to the local capacities is that indeed you sure we are very much concerned about but there should be no purpose for. incentive to cover up at this moment well hopefully they will find a solution to this. which is spreading quicker than we expected and again causing panic to people globally i think professor at the university school of public health chana thank you so much for your insight on this. sensible hammy.
5:40 am
and on the economic front of the coronavirus china's national bureau of statistics said it will need more time to truly see the financial impact in reporting that the country's purchasing managers index or p.m.i. dropped by 50.0 for the month of january from $50.00 over the last 2 months of the $2918.00 the n.b.s. warned that the survey had been taken prior to january 20th so it did not account for the coronavirus in a statement announcing the p.m.i. numbers the n.b.s. said the impact of pneumonia caused by the new coronavirus has not yet been fully manifested future trends will see if need further observation chinese manufacturing is currently mostly shut down due to the new year celebrations in the country but workers were planning to get back to work as early as next week now authorities have called on many businesses in certain regions of the country to remain shuttered longer in an effort to contain the spread of the disease now here in the u.s. the markets have fallen due to the continued coronavirus news headline by a more than $500.00 point fall in the down jones industrial average and for more on
5:41 am
exactly this we are broad we're going to bring in peter schiff c.e.o. of euro pacific capital peter there you so much for joining us today i want to start off by hitting on the u.s. markets taking a dive friday due to concerns over the coronavirus and we talked about the dow but actually all markets are down more than one percent really close to 2 percent now is this all about speculation is it a correction of the big gains we've seen recently or is it something else altogether. well 1st of all the coronavirus this is the excuse for the market going down it is not the cause remember investors had been buying u.s. stocks or global stocks for months in anticipation of the u.s. china trade deal so once that deal was signed the market was very vulnerable to sell on the news and so if it wasn't a coronavirus it would have been something else the market was poised for a decline and now that's what it's. and. i mean we're also seeing the concern over
5:42 am
chinese manufacturing picking back up after the new year celebrations that are in the bucks are we going to see a drag on the chinese economy in the coming months you said this was something that was expected and how is this going to affect companies that rely on china's manufacturing base. well it certainly could i mean will it remains to be seen just how big a drag it is going to be but again i think that there are much bigger problems out there than the coronavirus and so investors who think that that's what this is about right they think it's no big deal because the virus will probably be contained is probably being overblown and maybe it is but simply containing that virus is not going to restore health to the stock market the stock market could be headed a lot lower and people could be very complacent about this decline because they're attributing it to a cause that is not really driving the movement i mean peter it appears that we're seeing this over and over again i mean it's almost like politics is the way the
5:43 am
markets react to things because it's crisis to crisis it was a trade crisis it's foreign policy crisis now it's a health crisis so i mean is this just the way the markets work now it's purely speculation we have to find a reason to throw all 'd our money in and get it out. of the markets going up because of the fed and i'm sure if it weakens enough the fed will come in with more money printing another rate cut i mean look at the economic news today chicago p.m.i. the weakest in almost 5 years you know we're now down 7 consecutive months in contraction territory that never happens in less were in a recession yet they're trying to tell us we have a great economy look at the retailers other than atmos on which was up today the whole retail space is getting slaughtered look at some of these stocks today down 6789 percent the x r t which is their index of retailers is down i think 6 and a half percent in the month of january if they consume. so strong why are all these retailers collapsing i want to ask you this though on that theme during an
5:44 am
interview with fox business the u.s. commerce secretary ross was speaking about the virus saying that quote i don't want to talk about a victory lap over a very unfortunate very malignant disease the fact is it does give business yet another thing to consider when they go through their review of their supply chain so i think it will help to accelerate the return of jobs to north america what do you make of this comment is there any truth to it. i think it's wishful thinking in fact i think businesses are going to really happy consider the added risks of moving any jobs back to the united states because there is a pretty good chance that bernie sanders is going to be the next president and that is going to be a very hostile environment to u.s. businesses so they should get as far away from the u.s. as possible. all right i got the read me question of the day from my friend peter schiff here gold prices and their highest level since 2013 of the current bios
5:45 am
feeds the need for some type of safe haven investment honestly can you break it down for why does this type of global health crisis push up the demand for gold. while a goal is going up anyway again gold was going to go up regardless of the coronavirus that is not why gold is going up it's a safe haven from central banks from the fed from money printing from inflation you know the price of gold finished the month of january up $4.00 and a half percent beating the you know the dow the s. and p. were down i mean the russell 2000 was the weakest of the major indexes and that's the one that's most correlated with the u.s. economy but what's interesting about this gold rally the last time gold was this strong at a january was 2017 it was up 5 and a half percent in january but in that january gold stocks are on fire the g.d.s. j. which is a index of junior gold miners was up 20 percent in january in 2017 this january the index. it was down almost 2 percent so investors are not bullish at all despite the
5:46 am
fact that gold keeps hitting new highs i think this is a screaming buy this market is climbing the wall of worry gold is going much higher and gold stocks are fantastic by peter schiff never going to not say it but gold is a faith tested by c.e.o. of euro pacific capital so what if you're tired today. meanwhile on to some good news in amazon's stock market as the e-commerce giant reports some big earnings now crossing the one trillion dollar value this comes after their blow our innings report for its 4th quarter and 2019 reaching the trillion dollar market cap amazon shares hit a new all time intraday high on friday rising more than 1.2 percent just in early trading later up to 11 percent of the e-commerce giant also announced it now has

5:48 am
you know so but it's so much for the people are going to spend as much of this holiday season for sure right well we'll see we'll see what happens like your time now for a pause a quick break but. on the other side of the break global markets have begun to cool amid the spread of the krona virus we take a big picture look around the world to see how they have reacted plus the day is finally here the united kingdom is now on the edge of its departure from the european union but after the long awaited break what will a relational look like we'll break it down and as we go to break here are the numbers at the close. so so.
