citizens who are impacted by this virus one thing it says thing is they click down you know something that was emphasized and that is the resources that have gone down to one and to the affected areas. that they have doing as much as they possibly can because there has been a lot of criticism on social media particularly in han because of lack of medical staff lack of supplies that are needed in those areas and is as we heard they have sent down some military medics some military personnel and other civilian medical personnel down there but from what we're hearing there still is a lack of staff and a lack of supplies one thing that's interesting that they're trying to do to to combat that there are 2 hospitals being built right now for the coronavirus we know that one they started a couple of days ago they say that should be done in a couple of days the 2nd one they're saying is probably the take another couple of weeks they're looking at possibly 2000 plus beds again this is specifically to deal
with this coronavirus situation this is something we saw 17 years ago during the sars outbreak there was a hospital built very hastily just outside here in beijing but again it's just you know this is kind of a list a laundry list if you will kind of a reassurance of what the government is doing for this coronavirus you know it was interesting she didn't being the president coming out yesterday saying that this is a great situation and they're dealing with it and they're communicating again that something they said in this press conference the ministry of health national health that they're working with w.h.o. they're sharing information with w.h.o. because that's something they're very much criticized about 17 years ago. all right thanks got there and now we're going to speak david brown he's outside a theme park it's been shut down clearly despite all perhaps because of all the containment measures it's really sucking the life out of what would usually be some lively new year's celebration days.
absolutely sammy i mean in what is another body blow to hong kong's tourism industry already reeling from months of protests ocean park one of the most popular tourist attractions in hong kong has announced it's going to be closed until further notice the same goes for the disney theme park on land near here that's also going to close until further notice both places extremely popular with tourists from the mainland and as i say it's another nail in the coffin of hong kong's ailing economy tourism arrivals here in hong kong have dropped by more than 50 percent in the past 6 months and of course tourism is the lifeblood of the hong kong economy but these places are going to remain shut until further notice because the authorities here are anxious to try to further contain the spread of this virus so far there are 5 confirmed infections here in hong kong but also several 100
suspected cases now of course this all has echoes of the sars virus 17 years ago almost 300 people died then so what lessons if any have been learned since that time i've been finding out. all right thanks so much adrian brown there. security forces in iraq have killed 5 protesters during a crackdown on anti-government demonstrations police in the capital moved into streets near to where you square firing tear gas and burning tents the area became a focal point for the protests ever since they began in october saturday's crackdown came shortly after the influential shelled cleric knocked out a southerner with drew is support for the demonstrations. so i'm a binge of a this in the capsule way despite efforts in the end the sit in to end the season rather some protesters say they won't give up this is when the flashpoint of school

was supposed to hand over the report earlier this month but missed the deadline senator ron wyden says if it's not produced by the end of president trumps pietschmann trial he'll trigger a process allowing congress to release the document without going through the white house jay was killed in 2018 that the saudi consulates in istanbul. white house lawyers defending donald trump of the senate's impeachment trial say the u.s. president has done nothing wrong in his dealings with ukraine it's the 1st time his legal team is address the trial will have 2 more days to argue trump's case trump is accused of abuse of power and obstruction of congress high ditto castro reports from washington d.c. the opening argument of president trump's attorney saturday focused on 2 main points that trump did nothing wrong when he asked ukraine to investigate former
vice president joe biden a potential rival in the upcoming u.s. elections and that it's the democrats who wish to steal back the white house by hurting trump politically they're asking you to remove president trump from the ballot in an election that's occurring in approximately 9 months they're asking you to tear up. all of the ballots across this country on your own initiative. take that decision away from the american people. polling this week shows trump's approval rating is the highest it's been since he took office 44 percent of americans say he's doing a good job higher than when the ukraine allegations 1st surfaced and most instances when there had been political crises of course the president's popularity is a numbers go down in this case i think the president will actually be strengthened by this and specially after his acquittal acquittal is likely given most members of
the senate jury are republicans and it takes a 2 thirds majority to convict yet potential new evidence against trump continues to emerge harness and indicted ukrainian american businessman says he shared this audio recording with investigators they were a little over a year after the or whatever they were to figure out ok that's the way it appears to be trump's voice ordering the firing of the u.s. ambassador to kiev democrats say corrupt ukrainian officials had wanted her gone those same officials then began smearing biden if you really want the truth you want witnesses you want documents we hope our republican colleagues will agree with that democrats hope to convince at least 4 republican senators to agree to open the trial to new witnesses including some of president trump's closest advisers who have not yet testified the senate is expected to vote on that question next week if
their answer is no then president trump could be acquitted within days time castro al-jazeera washington. protests are being held in australia calling for the national day to be changed or scrapped altogether. ah demonstrators say the anniversary represents the start of colonial oppression and shouldn't be a day of celebration australia day marks the arrival of the 1st fleet of convicts ships from britain in 1788. calls for change have been growing louder over the past decade with sandy thomas explains straightly as current government is unlikely to take action. a growing number of people here and many thousands of them took part in a march to the center of sydney earlier on sunday say january the 26th biggest day to celebrate but as one to come emirates gender the 26788 was the day when british
