2:00 pm
and i understand it looks so good. live from the world headquarters of the r. t. america in our nation's capital this is the news with rick sanchez. and how to get everybody i'm rick sanchez and i want to welcome all of you who are watching us all over the world including those of you who are watching us on the on your mobile device using the portable t.v. once again the united states of america has set a new record in fact it happened yesterday when we surpassed 59000 coated 1000 cases in just one day 59000 by the way that is in no way an outlier it's actually a verifiable trend because we have in fact now set and then broken that record 5 times listen to this 5 times out of the last 9 days in fact it's safe to say that
2:01 pm
when it comes to coronavirus cases we here in the united states we are clearly in a league of our own. take a look at this chart see that chart right there what it does is it compares the caseload that's the red line in the united states to the blue line in europe and i want to show you a couple of things there's the peak for europe you see that right there that's when they started to take some measures to try and create lockdowns for example ours came here in the united states just a little bit afterward what's fascinating is as their measures went down you can see that they pretty much broke the curve right they even the curve and it continues all the way to this day because they're at 4000 a day in europe and it's just now right here that they're starting to finally make decisions to open things up again we here in the united states did things differently for example right there toward the end of april the beginning of may that's where texas and florida and acted their lock downs but both in texas and
2:02 pm
florida right around here they got rid of the lock downs and opened things up again and by opening things up you're going to see exactly what happens obviously it took a couple of weeks for people to really start getting out that another couple of weeks for the caseload to actually be accumulated which is right around there and that's how you can see where this starts going up to where it is right now at 59. 1000 cases a day remarkable and that's the difference that's the differentiator explaining it as simple as you can so what's happening now well. you got it get ready for some new shutdowns believe it or not in places like florida and texas businesses like bars and restaurants and events and gatherings are now being either shut down or limited again why. simple really the corona virus does not travel right it can't travel by itself it doesn't have legs it's
2:03 pm
a virus but we do so when we began traveling again and going to different places so that the virus could be mitigated by masks for example but many americans following the white house's lead have chosen not to wear masks so who's in charge well here's where it gives even more confusing as terms of what's going on in our country right now mayors in cities around the country have been pushing for stricter measures but many governors and different states have done just the opposite so you have the president saying one thing the governors and the mayors saying something else often conflictive and as for the c.d.c. guidelines you know what they are. so what we have is massive confusion and frustration and that is taking its toll on everyday people both mentally and physically and economically yes today for the 16th month in a row more than a 1000000 americans filed for unemployment going to break all of this down for you
2:04 pm
right here as we begin to well drill down on where we seem to be and where we seem to be headed with this pandemic here in the news with rick sanchez where we believe it really is time to do news again. right here now is a list of the questions we think you'll be asking tomorrow can the united states re flatten its covert curve the covert blues hits serbia but why the street violence there we'll take you there and what's it like to travel amid this coded surge. we begin though with the lockdowns that we've been talking about yes it may be happening again in the united states it's a foregone conclusion and nobody likes the idea but it may be new reality right but interesting enough we're not starting in the united states we're going to start
2:05 pm
with global coverage with a global perspective from serbia take a look at this look at this these are riots on the streets of belgrade where citizens suddenly became angry after apparently hearing that their president was going to reinstitute a locked out of their economy and mandate stay at home orders again here's our team correspondent alex mahela bitch picking up the story from here. 2 nights of this. sparks by strict coronavirus measures with a 2nd wave of confirmed infections plaguing serbia on tuesday the country's president aleksander voltage made this announcement because some will do not starting from tomorrow there will be a ban on any kind of public gatherings indoor or outdoor more than 5 people starting from friday curfew will be reimposed in belgrade from friday till monday we will reassess the situation on monday and make further decisions currently serbia's capital belgrade is the worst hit city in the country where across the
2:06 pm
nation over a dozen deaths have been reported along with hundreds of new infections so far this week while which insists that the measures have been put in place for the protection of citizens thousands of serbs have hit the streets to protest against the president's management of the coronavirus crisis we are here today because our government is trying for the 2nd time please put the cyclone. to impose current. he's only responsibility because me though the mistakes. patients so. poor. and i wish with the pressure on shortly after the announcement retracted the order but instead of bringing an end to the upheaval demonstrations have spread to other serbian cities with protests for and many would argue that the current unrest is about more than just a virus and is
2:07 pm
a part of an attack against serbia's current administration that was reelected just weeks ago some even blamed outside interference for the spread of the demonstrations including serbia's president to all those who think they can stomp on serbia from abroad i can say one thing serbia is a tough nut to crack that much tougher than you think that you know order to destroy it just like that unison not only will serbia survive this will be stronger and more successful besides economic pressure in recent years serbia has endured a number of onslaughts that can be described as foreign interference in the current situation there are fingers pointing at serbia's local media for making things worse an interesting fact is a significant part of the serbian media landscape is controlled by the k. keep our global institute whose chairman happens to be former cia director and u.s. general david petraeus with coke at 19 and external powers and play the situation in serbia can be described as dangerous while most serbs watch from the sidelines
2:08 pm
the situation in the streets is causing instability and he's doing little to help stop the spread of the coronavirus for news with rick sanchez i'm alex mileage joining us now is former m.p. george galloway you know george there's so much to unpack here in the united states the case loads never been worse in europe finally they're starting to see a break from this and now are thinking about opening things up and then we see in serbia where they want to read locked out and people take to the streets and riot. what's going on here. well as alex put it perfectly a minute ago this is about more than the coronavirus the political conflict in serbia has been unresolved since the war the nato war against serbia over a constable and early are over the breakup of yugoslavia the political fault lines
2:09 pm
have never settled down from the period of the united states patris and his group are trying to a pool serbia one way or western direction you might say others there are you might call them serbian nationalists they look east they look to russia as their natural ally and of course serbian nationalism is still up in arms literally against the severing of the country over the course of all question cause of war now a nato protectorate unable to stand on its own but torn out of its beyond motherland but the coronavirus angle is obvious the president lifted all the lockdown measures in order that he could have an election which was not necessary in order to get himself reelected and having been civilly reelected now he wants to put the
2:10 pm
lockdown on the quarantine back up again and so everyone is in a state of furor you know george the world health organization put out a statement yesterday where they seem to suggest that those countries that are having a tough time dealing with covert 19 are having a tough time dealing with it because of their leadership vacuum are they right. yes leadership is key if you have a consistent leadership with a consistent message like china did like vietnam did like south korea did you can take your people with you but if you don't you're out here which unfortunately son tends to explain what's going on right now here and in some measure in the u.k. a while ago in your country george thank you my friend for joining us we appreciate it we want to do something a little different today i guess you could say we're sort of breaking format if you
2:11 pm
will what we want to do is get a better understanding of what it's like to travel during code 19 but rather than booking aghast or assigning the story to one of our correspondents we asked our team contributor and former n.t.s.b. official transportation official jamie finch to hit the road for us jamie has prepared a video vignette for you that captures what he actually experienced while he was on the move in these very precarious times. ok well we boarded our we're on our way to the airport now able to see how the change what changes have been made. in the airports on checking in and what their reaction trial is going to be like now code that. looks.
2:12 pm
like you. were taking the super to the airport and i have to say we got here very quickly because there's not a lot of traffic right now not as many people are traveling as they were prior to the pandemic so you can see that there's a lot of people here and so it's pretty easy to practice social distancing right now the 1st thing you do before you go into the airport but sure you're wearing your mask and when you're inside the airport and throughout your travels make sure that you wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds the time away and or using incentives like. we're in the southwest check in area at national airport in washington d.c. you can see that there's a limited number of kiosks here usually i would say that there's probably about 3 times as many kiosks here if you look at the airport it's empty. i can tell you right now we've been here for what 3045 minutes and this is the most people i've seen the airport all morning go check our bags and it's national.
2:13 pm
for the t.s.a. security point here at washington national you can see there's a limited number of travelers here going through security so the chances of your being delayed for security are pretty slim right now during these times when people are traveling like they were prior to the pandemic the c.s.a. is also trying to maintain social distance and you'll notice on the floors they put some marks to remind people to maintain 6 feet apart and social distance and. t.s.a. has no institution new rules and regulations on how they are in their action happens which one of the passenger and the agent it's no longer all the passengers hands or their boarding pass or those points i devise to the agent this agent will absorb it from them or that or the passer holds it up for them. as well as showing them to
2:14 pm
their id. if you're thinking about food you might want to think about something before you get to the airport that you can bring with you as i'm in this more support of the restaurants are very limited and the ones that are open. in the ones that are open were kind of because there's not many options for people to go. people are just waiting in the waiting areas like they normally do i don't know if there are in kind of rules written regulations or. certain airports are putting restrictions place far as observed here in nashville and also at national airport in washington d.c. it didn't seem like it was there any kind of rules or stipulations or regulations on being enforced on people for the seating sitting separately or or or maintain social distance you. were going to place else it really was kind of an unremarkable . other than that everybody had on masks and. felt blessed that they
2:15 pm
maintained that the middle seat entry to the flight was pretty full of the airline good as now what kind of training they were doing with the plane in between every flight and also the plane that they're doing every night with the planes and not use now we're here in nashville so let's go get our baggage. former transportation official jamie fitch giving us. on the ground and in the air look at what it's like to actually travel right now well jamie this is the news with rick sanchez you're watching our special coverage when we come back dr lisa paula joins us to discuss well how to cope with the kobe blues where here for you will be right back.
2:16 pm
ah no t.v. no credit. no shots. actually felt. in the let's try both of those 2. points your thirst for action. i'm chris hedges the corporate coup d'etat has destroyed our democratic institutions the commercial media is burlesque part of the reality show presidents expose the trivial lives seen on contact question more. seen the horrors that arise with money and evil. corporate criminals who trash calculus lives to add just one more dollar to their millions. they threaten they
2:17 pm
bribe they'll do anything to keep their crimes in the door but the people they've heard are demanding justice their stories need to be told on america's lawyer. year thank you for finally. understand you're tired of networks. 'd you know me 'd famous for my views. yours truly. i'm holland cook i invite you to climb with me of the mainstream media and from that higher fan to each to glimpse the big picture question more.
2:18 pm
their welcome back i'm rick sanchez here over there is rick sanchez on r t america back for those of you watching us on portable t.v. we showed you a little while ago the way people are reacting in serbia and here in the united states or have been similar acts of frustration as a result of the confusion and the emptiness that a lot of people are feeling right now some are lashing out for example the idea of wearing a mask has some people very frustrated here watch this you cannot escape i'm a see that again you can not escape god not even with the mask or 6 feet arresting me. you're going to. you're coming close and you. know i'm not going to you know we don't want any of this anymore this is over you know. why do you want me asking. can you give up one woman.
2:19 pm
this is crazy i mean at 1st we were shocked right when this whole thing covered 1000 things started and then we tended to accept it. and then we thought it was almost behind us and that we're being told that we might have to be. lockdown again if ever there's time to do a segment called the blues it's right now joining us is dr lisa paul murray who is a practicing psychologist at palm beach county florida how many people are you see who are directly affected by this thing the blues that we're i guess coining today on the show. a lot of people are affected by this and they're tired of staying home unfortunately a lot of people are banding and they're going to hell and that's for sure i'm just wondering as i look at this how difficult you think it will be because if it's hard
2:20 pm
now it's only going to get harder where you are there in florida many municipalities are saying we're going to read a lot down restaurants bars we're shutting them down events we're not going to let people have them again so it's almost like a double whammy what's the effect on the human psyche on our psychology when this kind of thing happens what are you seeing. well what i'm saying is a lot of people are having trouble staying at home because they're having to face a loss and not distract themselves with the unusual and i've even had friends that said i just can't do this anymore so i'm just going to write a while and i'm going to travel not being my friends going to trial and go out with my friends and you know have fun are trying to act like life is normal when it isn't and i really am concerned about people who are taking that approach because people really are getting sick from that strike and people are dying and i think this is a hoax they social media it's all 'd it's i i say well how many people have died
2:21 pm
but do we really need more people to try to you know a teacher or and have personal responsibility for our own health and for the health of our a lot of what i know that i personally have friends one of them was a former miss usa 2 recently changed out that she. and i think it's really cool and if you have a friend or a loved one or maybe even yourself some through that you can utilize social media to educate and it's up to people about your symptoms and the fact that this is real to make this more real for people here so we need some coping mechanisms for you people are listening right now and they're they're really having a tough time dealing with this we know that our governments have screwed up every mayor says something different every governor said something different and who knows what's coming from the white house on any given day so how do we cope with this uncertainty in this frustration lisa well we have to cope by having very
2:22 pm
strong daily habits or. you have to work within what you can do right so we're work we will take a daily walk take a daily walk practice good routines at home if you can talk to phone if you use their mind you just have to work within the construct of the what you can and strides to. life is far more. create normalcy for me and of course i just join your show which i would do anyways. and i mean i try to take care of myself and i'm very sad. that's great advice great advice dr lisa palmer joining us with well coping tips for the coated 1000 blooms. guess who's declaring bankruptcy brooks brothers the high end men's wear store that has manufactured suits that were worn by 'd almost every single u.s. president it's the oldest men's store in america it was founded in 1918 when james
2:23 pm
monroe was president is brooks brothers alone in these bankruptcy times that we're looking at as well no 97 other businesses of vava bankruptcy this year look at his list j.c. penney 324 hour fitness advantage rent a car chuck e. cheese saturday chuck e. cheese no circus so laid gnc herds j. crew neiman marcus wow. it's going on joining us now. to market analyst chrystia christy. should we be worried i mean these are some of the companies that most of us grew up with right absolutely right now like the name so you just listed these are mom and pop businesses these are large mega cap businesses and as you said books by those who've been around for over 200 years bloomberg actually reported that the list is even bigger as of now there's over there's about 117 u.s.
2:24 pm
companies with with market caps over 15000000 that have declared that have now officially declared and filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy so right now that list is going to grow even longer as we get into the 2nd wave or potentially the 3rd wave and the sectors that are being hit the hardest are going to be the oil sector and consumer sector as those sectors were already in very bad shape before this entire coronavirus started and so now with the added pressure additional pressure these are going to be forced to either consolidate or lay off your market analyst a new study these trends that i know you're really good at it so. do me a favor to cut your crystal ball and tell us what the future's going to look like because i don't think these companies in these industries that are suffering retail for example are only going to suffer for the next year it seems like some of these things are going to be here to stay right exactly we're only in the 1st innings of this and a lot of analysts have speculated that currently there's about 80 publicly traded oil and gas companies and we were already seen or warren buffett step in and try to
2:25 pm
scoop up a couple of them are eddie in recent days simply because of the very low valuations right now so right now with the limited amount of travel that you just previously touched on as well as the fact that where as well the fact that even if these lockdown restrictions are lifted a lot of companies have indicated that they're going to still enact the work from home so that's going to decrease overall travel as a whole meanwhile on the consumer side on the consumption and retail side retail brick and mortar stores we're already dying. the coronavirus and this has just accelerated the downfall so in the near future within 5 years 10 years a lot of the current landscape as we know it currently is going to have to be severely impacted because these 2 huge industries consumer oil and gas as well as agriculture a lot of people don't talk about about agriculture bankruptcies are actually up 24 percent and that is one of the largest spike since the 1980 s. agriculture crisis so in the future the only places we're going to get our goods from is by ordering them online what will happen to the other stores what will
2:26 pm
happen to retail what will happen to the mom potshot the guy with a hardware store down the street where you go in you know buy your tween cetera what happens to that kind of business it's going to be very sad very disappointed because as they currently stand a lot of these mom and pops are going to be going into bankruptcy very soon because the only reason they have currently survived up on television was because of the p.p.p. loans are we enacted and that that was the emergency funding that was meant to protect payroll protect employees and provide assistance for these modern the shop in order to weather the coronavirus which everybody and nationally thought was only going to last 345 months but now since it's lasting longer and since people the loans are ending come july come the end of july and everything we are going to see additional lay out so even though right now unemployment right now is at a 4 month low which was a very big positive for the entire market we all saw the market rally up on the positive but we think that it's still too early to read too much into this
2:27 pm
information well you know i mean listen to what you're saying you're saying a lot of these stores are going to close of those stores close their jobs are gone exactly those are the major major player going to be working right there those are going to be real job losses and those are going to be permanent not going to be a temporary furlough anymore. boy one wonders that right i mean where are people going to work are going to are people going to make their living is this going to be a fundamental change in our economy i mean down to 20 seconds you say what christie this is absolute going to be a fundamental change and i. people are going to have to strap in because consumption is going to take a very big hit as well as everybody else's disposable income as well so i think in the near future we're already seeing the bankruptcy starting to come i think varying in the very near future will soon start to see home foreclosures as well. kristie bair you're so smart thanks for joining us as usual you're the best thanks for giving us those answers and sharing your crystal ball with us thank you stay safe think about could this have been the news with rick sanchez we're so glad that you're there by the way will be back when it's time we want to save
