differ with with my friend peter is actually think it's possible that we could get out of this thing pretty quickly come the fall in the winter i think peter has a bit of an apocalyptic view talk about the coronavirus that's not the problem no the coronavirus is just the pin the debt bubble is the problem it doesn't matter the coronavirus can be cured the damage is already done the debt bubble is imploding you know if it wasn't a coronavirus it would have been something else this bubble has been looking for a pin for years and it finally found one the us has done everything wrong this stimulus package is as is utterly pointless the this is just government officials trying to make headlines and make news and do what they think they're supposed to do but it means nothing the fiscal stimulus would mean nothing but i think we're faced with with the short term deflation as we've seen from from virtually prices and everything from financials to oil to the fiscal stimulus is going to make the situation worse the us is broke did your is no money to stimulate the economy all
3:04 pm
we could do is print money we're going to crank up the printing presses we're effectively dropping money from helicopters but it's no coronavirus does anything it's going to reduce the supply of goods so after this initial decline in prices prices are going to go up because there's not going to be very much to buy the supply of goods is going to go down meanwhile the supply of money is going to go through the roof. the world health organization is will do more code with $1000.00 cases now being recruited in europe each day that in china at the height of the break is direct to general cold in countries everyone had to take aggressive measures to slow the spread of the illness. europe has now become the epicenter of the pandemic with more reported cases and theirs is done the rest of the world combined apart from china more cases out of now being reported every day than were reported in china at the highest of its epidemic at the height of
3:05 pm
its appeal to me. for europe u.s. president donald trump already placed a ban on foreigners flying into the u.s. from $26.00 european nations public figures of course not to be neither the canadian prime minister itself isolating 14 days after his wife tested positive for covert 19 after a visit to the u.k. around the world more than 130000 infections have been registered with the death toll now 5000 tonight countries are clamping down on people mixing in public schools workplaces have been sheltered in major sports for spode of course with spreading just as fast the viruses old so providing opportunities for the unscrupulous. reports from paris about that than. with panic in no short supply coronavirus here and for some enterprising individuals well
3:06 pm
shysters to be more precise i've been concocting a variety of scams to make a quick buck now we're all well aware that the 1st line of defense against the virus is toll was on her and when you're out in the boat touching everything from. handrails to picking up things in shops it's a bit difficult to run into a both room to scrub. every time well thank goodness of course those little travel sized bottles of her unsanitized to fight those nasty germs and that is of course if you can still find debbie the phones don't stop printing this morning we had the schools the town halls the public transport company everybody was g.l. we are under siege with demand far outstripping supply the cost of one gel exponentially increased the problem was considered so serious the french government stepped in an ounce to you that today we will take care of the degree regulating
3:07 pm
the prices of hierarchy holic gelb's another precaution for many is to do. on a face mask the tiny bit of cough covering your mouth and nose is this season's must have it seems the face mask took over paris fashion week so if you have the money instead of paying a couple of euros for one you can spend thousands if you like except that the type of mask available over the counter or even from marina and fresh in house is pretty useless against the virus that's at least according to the french government which at the same time is requisitioned all stocks and production all flasks for the next few months reserving them for health workers and those who are infected but the scammers have a new ploy france has you probably know a wolf famous ban or fully covering your face in public that's mainly aimed at
3:08 pm
conservative muslim women but some tricksters have twisted it to their advantage dressing as police officers they've been told getting chinese visitors to paris who were wearing face masks telling them that they had broken the law and had to pay an oath in the sport following these students were 1st stupid 150 years and finds most policeman for having broken the law that bans complete face covering in public spaces police investigation found the d.'s police were pretending to be police wearing a mask for health reasons is absolutely not illegal and then there are those trying to pick on the weak and the elderly in the district around bordeaux there are reports of people selling door to door decontamination services for a snip at 1500 euros these con artists use a pressure washer to do
3:09 pm
a little bit of cleaning that's not all they're up to this type of canvassing allows these crooks to enter your home check the pres. it's a valuable objects for the presence of an alarm system or perform if they have the opportunity a robbery by trick the majority of the victims of robbery or elderly who are physically weaker tell your loved ones to take precautions and the scams it seems are gaining momentum the french national consumer and fraud office says it's received thousands of reports of dog dealings we're talking everything from magical lumps with disinfecting properties to empty purifiers the simple and most effective method to stay virus free is something that we should all be doing anyway and that is the really washing our hands with soap and water it's that simple so remember to kiss well physically as we've been told what to believe is this search 6 but the acronym keep it simple stupid and don't get caught.
3:10 pm
r.t. paris. from russia here the latest is tonight 11 new cases of corona virus have been confirmed bringing the total number of people infected to 45 across the country a new and moves are being made to close. any further spread health officials of therefore announced that flights to the european union and showing good nations of switzerland and norway will now be reduced from this coming monday passengers will be limited to traveling to capital cities only. the coronavirus crisis is posing unique difficulties for want to greece's smaller outlying islands one case has been registered on lesbos but is big news because of course but island small as it is is host with a densely packed refugee with more than 20000 a living in dire conditions a correspondent. is gone there to speak to some we are leaders about their worries . i'm standing here in front of the laurier refugee camp in the listless reese were
3:11 pm
about 20000 refugees are held in an area that was initially built for 2000 people area it's not the best when it comes to fighting in the conditions are not the ideal for people living in such a small area but now with the spread of corona virus in the realm of the world's a lot of the people are concerned he went around and spoke to the locals to see what they had to say about a fear of a virus like that spreading among the camp and this is what. if it gets like italy will be doomed because the island only has one hospital it is good if they manage to isolate one or 2 of those infected with corona virus one of the feel and lead the infection spread further you can imagine what will happen to them of them ago there will be many issues and they will be big the virus is likely to spread very fast it could be maria that's affected but also my telling the whole island of lesbos will be in trouble i have family on the island and of course i'm afraid if
3:12 pm
we have our homes our jobs they say many bad things about us but it's us who are dealing with this issue but as the locals are raising concern about such a bit leaf iris on the island and jewels are ensuring that nothing of those cases have been confirmed here at the moria camp but as we went around and we spoke to refugees who are living in the scalp for many many years now they have a different opinion this place like witnessed. a lot of people here and now i don't know we saw somebody told me yesterday that 2 people have it's yes men and good men . and i'm sick but they're not even treating me nobody's paying any attention but these kind of viruses already here even if you are in the hospital it does not help much because you cannot be cured you know i sleep in a container with other 13 people but. yes. it's really hard to imagine what it's like there is not all tech companies meantime been looking to step up their role in
3:13 pm
halting the spread of covert 90 various apps are being developed to try to highlight the increasing risks but critics fear all that then comes at the expense of users' privacy so else to worry about here a couple of examples on the screen there now one application asks for your postal code and goes as far as to ask about your personal hygiene habits and we think about the get people to publish their virus like symptoms to help create a kind of a map of the high risk areas based on data all well and good but all that use a personal data could fall foul of even laws for a start which heavily restrict which medical data can be gathered for instance it's illegal to use location data to track yeah any way or form strike anyone who is sick employees also can't take random temperature readings of this stuff and i can't gather other digital information unless medical professionals are involved we discuss whether or not the data privacy whole thing can take a back seat because these are pretty old times when it comes to exploiting tech to
3:14 pm
tackle the pandemic right now. if ups can be made to work in that way where data is anonymised and we can have a service that provides some form of utility to the general population then there is real potential here to to provide a service that would be absolutely necessary in this kind of occasion if people are worried about being surveyed by the state and that's too late the state is surveying everybody and so are private corporations embedded in the state so we take a really security 1st approach that there's no reason why you can't keep the data secure and there's no reason why you can't abide by g.d.p. our dispose of the date data once the. virus is over it is potentially a very a useful tool for dealing with a pandemic like this because we've got all of this communications infrastructure which was not liking during the black death for example which was allow us to act collectively to protect ourselves it's all a bit hurried we don't have a single focus on a single up we don't actually have the permissions structure we're not able to
3:15 pm
identify accurately the people who we actually need to track and actually some of the security in the privacy provisions haven't been put in and minded about and if we're going to rush this then the chance of it being secure and everything working accurately is very unlikely to be a sufficient we do need laws to protect the citizens but the laws us to be russian law realistic and in the situation like this you could have. basically people being asked to volunteer information about where they've been and what they've done unless should be any problem in offering the phone to you know legitimate medical personnel so that they can use it to help them fight this crisis. of the news away from coronavirus for a bit and some developments coming in from the middle east this evening in iraq has announced it's going to complain to the u.n. security council over the u.s. led airstrikes that left 6 iraqi citizens dead overnight earlier on friday the british american ambassadors were summoned for questioning in baghdad it's seen
3:16 pm
iraq to. a firm stance so far stating in fact that relations with washington have been affected and its actions won't be forgotten. the u.s. bombing of government security and civilian headquarters undermines counterterrorism efforts and disrupt the agreement between iraq and the global coalition so the pentagon line on this was that it was targeting the iran backed qatar of hezbollah militia which should sic used of carrying out a deadly rocket attack against coalition personnel 2 days before the us has said it's for a tele 3 strikes are aimed at taking out 5 of the paramilitary groups weapons storage facilities. in response to this attack on an iraqi base that hosts coalition forces supporting the iraqi fight against isis we carried out precision defensive strikes to degrade and destroy it vance conventional weapons that have been provided to keep it contained hizbullah by there are any and backers we are in iraq to support the people of iraq in their fight against isis however we always reserve the right to defend our forces whenever they're attacked or threatened the
3:17 pm
iraqi authorities though say no they say the so-called precision attack actually killed 3 regular soldiers 2 police officers in a civilian an unfinished airport in the holy city of karbala was also damaged in the attacks have seen protests now break out in the capital over it. and i think i had to marvel at the about it that we condemned the attacks on popular move through us the sights and the rock iraq has become a war zone for internal and external wars and now rick in the run the fighting one of them threatens to be out there and ultimately iraqis are the ones so for victims that. schools are being settled between america and iran and it is happening there now soil it violates our still renting it while it's our right now we are calling for the united nations to intervene. but. i am surprised that the government is ignoring such actions as you condemn both sides iran and america their actions violate iraq's sovereignty which has become
3:18 pm
a joke among countries in the region and around the world. dr ahmed rashid is a foreign policy advisor to the iraqi parliament he told us that the ongoing u.s. military presence is proving to be extremely harmful for his country it's jeopardize the what here for iraq it's also a job or ties the life of iraqis but that's not forget the american attacks actually killed iraqis just civilians and policeman so at the end iraq is always are the victims and i don't think the americans will withdraw it will not happen by themselves what the actually they paid with the trillions of dollars since 2003 it's it's not it's my thought is that there is no sense of withdraw from iraq without getting anything from iraq it can be happen if the iraqi political blocs and the iraqi people united together and say to iran and to the united states ok that's it we will not accept you what you are destroying our country you are
3:19 pm
killing our civilians so of that way i think only on that way we can change the situation in iraq. based on the race for the white house the u.s. democrats race to name a presidential candidate it's been put on hold of the state of louisiana now becoming the 1st to perspire its primary over coronavirus fee is still going on the cards though hopefuls joe biden and bernie sanders who will go head to head this sunday in another debate but with serious restrictions not only is the debate being moved mara zona to washington d.c. it'll also feature no studio audience a lot of shows in the us right now one of the moderators is also pulled out of a medical concerns as for the candidates themselves sanders has no trailing well behind biden believes he is still in with a chance. donald trump must be defeated and i will do everything in my power to make that happens on sunday night in the 1st one on one debate of this campaign the american people will have the opportunity to see which candidate is
3:20 pm
best positioned to accomplish that goal well the cynicism his company has been praised for reaching out to disaffected young people he still needs to do much better in the remaining primaries if he wants to turn his food she's around reporting on caleb maupin tonight the last day of democratic primary voting did not go too well for bernie sanders and now many voices are calling for him to drop out of the race and clear the road for joe biden however sander says he is not willing to give up just yet now sanders says his campaign actually has the upper hand over his rival when it comes to the youth but it is not just the ideological debate. that. is what. we need the generational. one or 2 in the future you need to. preserve the
3:21 pm
future oh country now the polls confirm what bernie sanders says young people like him more than they like joe biden and one of the goals of the bernie sanders campaign is to get them more involved in the electoral process but it's not as easy as it sounds how we've been as successful as i would hope in brigham young people and the answer is no but why young people aged 20 to 35 approximately adds up to roughly 60 samant 1000000 people if they all signed up to vote sanders would have quite the edge but they haven't done that turnout among younger voters remains comparatively low some blame the procedure for registering to vote for the 1st time for students who are going to school in another state registering to vote can get quite complicated some said that the electoral college and the party primary process is very confusing and complicated and the quality of education on civic matters is quite low we decided to talk to some younger people here in new york
3:22 pm
city and find out why the numbers of young people going out to vote is so low did you vote in the last election now do you plan to vote in the upcoming primary vote maybe. maybe better believe it why might you not vote. it just doesn't make sense that the public's opinion doesn't even matter when it comes to a presidential election now why do you think a lot of young americans don't vote. cause it doesn't make any sense to close the most the defense of the. people sometimes the lines are really long but. not as long as adults knew that's what younger people just either don't think it's important as are so many people voting or they just. i don't know. why i feel like a lot of them probably think that their vote doesn't make a difference so he's as i hear from a lot of my friends who can vote so that's probably the devil is what happened last election as well i don't think they feel that their voices heard it is one of their
3:23 pm
reasons and i don't think that they really understand what a difference it makes in our democracy today are you going to vote for sanders or biden. sand is to keep that to myself i guess i like both of them i go to go. by the i think as i stand right now is leaning more toward sanders now the sanders campaign has been reaching out to younger voters with catchy slogans and internet memes some say this could hurt him with older voters who don't like the resentful towner radicalism coming from the sanders campaign on the other hand it's the younger generation struggling with historic levels of debt and lack of health care who have the most to gain or lose people in my age group younger and older than me like you want to people like are working a lot or the rest school or or both so they just don't have time for politics and there's also a lot of political apathy student debt but it's also. health care and it's jobs over the 3 main thing a lot of people in my generation their own generations there's almost no future for
3:24 pm
us a lot of these people who might bite him just want to keep things the way they are all the old people the old generations they have their pensions they have this and that they don't see anything already being in our i mean no i have to most people think that all the military actions that the u.s. has done in the past 20 years has been justified that's it just gives people into a lot of middle upper middle class liberal types bitin reminds them of things or everything was fine and back to normal even though for the one or more overwhelming majority of the population of the us things weren't normal for people worst. struggling to get by. so if bernie sanders does eventually drop out of the race the democratic party's infighting might poke rowsell votes at risk of november's election one american t.v. pundit drew fire on live suggesting she'd rather wasted vote than play along with the party establishment maneuvering against sanders i don't think it's terrible for progressives threaten to vote for trump i think that's nuts i would never do that i
3:25 pm
don't know her donald trump either but you can we let the line here we go crystal ball saying she will leave it blank in november what an absolute hack this is a really great example of white privilege in action with all that on the line crystal ball one of the biggest grifters on the scene is using her platform to advocate for trump's reelection just wear a maggot hat and be done with it all this behind the scenes soap opera playing at the democratic party is a gift and a lot of us news coverage there staring suggestions that support for sanders will only help trump get reelected the vermont senators backers of big dinner over the dug in rather accusing his critics of big more than little self-serving over the. i will absolutely not default for biden when they try to get into it by saying you
3:26 pm
must be privileged not to be impacted by trump's policies remember they're trying desperately to hang on to their privileges which they will never ever extend to you the d.n.c. may have just gone triumph reelected make no mistake you've biden who is totally demented excites no one and has 0 good pauses to offer is the democratic party candidate trying will win reelection all of these are republican party and russian hashtags don't buy into it they're trying to prevent berna supporters from supporting joe biden so the trump wins in an election he has no chance in. bigler media commentator lionel chipped in he says if sunder supporters do show and joe biden party leaders only got themselves to blame them there is a sizable faction and always has been all for the last 2 elections who supported bernie sanders who don't like the fact that bernie sanders has been shown that he's
3:27 pm
been moved out of the way for the 2nd time in a row now they're being told listen shut up vote for the party vote for i vote for vote how you're told to listen to your elders and what they're doing is they're saying wait a minute this is not my idea of voting remember the lesser of 2 evils is still evil they know they're going to get screwed again and then you have other pundits who somehow have established themselves as being the voice of either progressive activism or democrats who are saying no if you don't fall for it joe biden you were violating your oath and they're saying down with your old i'm voting my way that's what's happening. there are a few places on earth or a sense of identity is more keenly felt that in jerusalem in the east of the city though this fury right now among palestinians living there and how washington's been referring to them and human rights report they described as arab residents or non israeli citizens middle east correspondent paula sleeze been gauging more
3:28 pm
reaction in that city. what's in a name a lot if you live in east jerusalem and a palestinian but washington has decided to simply ditch the palestinian identity of those who live here in east jerusalem the state department now considers them arab residents or non israeli citizens the move has infuriated many with palestinian leaders saying it's an attempt to wipe out their national identity it just playing with fire may not as you stand as means nothing to us and by the way i'm ready to resent us drama that means nothing to us we out of the old regime the people of the palestinians when i say i'm pretty soon in some places they don't like they don't they want us to say we are israelis and if i am palestinian who is trying to say anything this is our land our country our state the state of palestine i'm not going to leave this nationality while freedom fighters here. give
3:29 pm
some rights to decide our life and he says it's hot air this land is for the arabs it's our land we were born here in israel this is east jerusalem which israel captured in the 1967 war it's late it makes the area and it moves that is still not recognized internationally more than 360000 palestinians or non israeli citizens live here most of them hold israeli residency permits but very few have israeli citizenship they've long sought to make this area they kept a toe the change in american terminology comes amid increased wrangling over the contested city the american president donald trump's middle east plan says that you recently should remain the softened capital of the state of israel for ever policia east jerusalem. so we go time for so far in this update always more always more of various social media it's $29.00 coming up see that see how tendonitis of fred even
3:30 pm
