who have been infected or done well on saturday the virus came to its 1st victim outside asia an elderly chinese tourist in france more than 69000 people are now infected wild wide most of them in china and an american woman who was a passenger on a cruise ship that docked in cambodia has tested positive for the virus she fares in malaysia on friday she was one of the 1400 passengers that disembarked from the n.-s. west today and in cambodia on says day well there are also growing concerns that not enough is being done to protect medical workers who are treating the sick adrian brown reports from hong kong. medical workers in china are fighting a battle for the world in some cases without adequate protection more than $700.00 nurses and doctors have so far been infected several have died many of them look so exhausted in front of the camera when you're exhausted you will get infected
because you just lost your elders and you cannot follow the guidelines well. last week the chinese government conceded there was a shortage of essential medical equipment including protective clothing but state t.v. says that's changing now it's been showing pictures of army medical teams arriving at the epi center with specialist gear further proof says china of its intensifying efforts to control the virus a virus that the country's foreign minister says has created excessive alarm among some governments really good winter will pass and the spring is sure to come china's vigorous and thorough measures are paying off the epidemic has posed a severe challenge to china's economic and social development none the less the difficulties will be temporary and short lived the latest official figures from china's national health commission offer a crumb of comfort these latest figures don't show
a significant drop in the death rate but the number of new infections in who by province is falling they were half what they were on thursday but experts outside china urged caution saying these figures can be independently verified analysts say it's become a pivotal moment for china's leader xi jinping if this works and it looks like this thing is contained and they get thumbs up from the world health organization and other you know epidemiologist it's going to look like they've done the right thing and he could come out of this looking well but at the moment it's such a go on saturday china's government extended its quarantine restrictions to the capital beijing anyone returning to the city following the extended lunar new year holiday missed now isolate themselves at home for 14 days state media says those who don't will be punished without specifying what that will mean in hong kong the infection rate is under 60 with one dead now the chief executive kerry lam says the

just to make that diversity a bit more tangible and the ballots that are being handed out as early voting begin there are 3 ballots come in 3 languages english spanish and tagalog the national language of the philippines is about an 8 percent asian american demographic in about 9 percent african-american and about 30 percent latino and that also explains the latest polling we've seen as a big gap in polling and of others who we were all kind of wondering what was going on with the latest poll has bernie sanders ahead 25 percent he has he has a very strong that team or base in nevada joe biden 2nd 18 percent now nevada's going to be integrity for joe biden's chances of moving forward his entire pitch is he's the electable one but he keeps losing elections and 4th 5th in new hampshire he's hoping that his strong traditional african-american base will
help pull him through but there's a great deal of evidence that even that slipping in the latest national polls his lead among african-americans has dropped by 10 percent because according to pose the reason african-americans are one of the main reasons african-americans like joe biden is because he is seen as the electable one they do feel that way and they have to do everything they can no matter if they prefer birdies or loses you know petrol inequality the main priority has to be donald trump but if he isn't actually winning them then he's in a bit of trouble so this is key for joe biden 3rd place elizabeth warren 13 percent she didn't seem like she was that confident she pulled a great deal of advertising from nevada but we'll see tom star in for 11 percent he's the other candidate for whom nevada is key we made over heard much about about to now because he's been putting all of his money into nevada he's another billionaire. got basically a hedge fund person i don't trouble that's part of his pitch i'm the sort of person go off to the trump electable i can get him on that you know his idea of being a businessman i'm a good businessman he's
a bad business. if he doesn't get anything or doesn't get real traction about it he's probably going to be out then we have to judge him a clip of 10 percent each the center centers of the right wing of the democratic party they're not thought to be doing terribly well here because they basically have no ethnic minority support generally over very little ethnic minorities but every club which are in particular has real trouble because a few years back she sponsored she she voted against an obama amendment that was to give bilingual language official documents from the government she voted against that in 2008 that doesn't really make people in the latino community terribly well disposed towards you but she says she's changed now and then things are sort of after that so it's a key key key primary for several of the candidates and it sort of joe biden doesn't do well there we'll hear much more about mike bloomberg i'm sure mike who is not on the ballot but but the centrists and there is in the one percent of the
democratic party are getting more and more worried about joe biden but poor performance and i'm sure the song which will boost mike bloomberg strong to the getting more official support which wealthy support in the coming coming elections he doesn't really get going until march and super tuesday she have a chance of that with us from washington d.c. thanks. well still ahead on i was there the gruesome murder of a woman in mexico is drawing attention to the country's rising an aside. and we head to the south american country that's becoming a breeding ground for the outs that. i. hello once again as we look at weather conditions across northeastern parts of asia you see this massive cloud moving across the east china sea up towards japan and
we're expecting some pretty heavy rain and snow for across japan of nice 24 hours you see the rain there across a whole issue further north across the colorado we're looking at snow in some heavy snow about quite a contrast in temperatures 14 degrees there in tokyo which is one degree in sapporo so move on through into monday really for sapporo it is going to be a snowy day it will turn drier later on further south better conditions for much of japan 17 there in tokyo and dry bright conditions across southeastern china as being quite what should be a good day in hong kong with the temperature there 16 degrees heading down into southeastern parts of asia where the thunderstorms here should expect to particular across more western parts of java and the jakarta will see further showers during the course of sunday borneo is looking pretty wet as well much as you would expect and then as we head on through into monday not a great deal of change certainly for malaysia in borneo it could be quite wet coaching there look at highs of $32.00 degrees is a largely fine potato picture across much of india and also down towards sri lanka
although that could be wanted to showers affecting the south of the islands. but. if you are looking at this from the outside you would really wonder what was going on what is this grace is a religion that they have an in-depth exploration of global capitalism and our obsession with economic growth this is still the center of capitalism there is no limits i view myself as a capital orders we are trying to pave the road smaller and smaller we don't want to be so realistic in the world we would rather have a fantasy growing pains on al-jazeera. the you.
know again i'm the stars here today and a reminder of our top stories this hour as strikes by the saudi led coalition in more than yemen have killed at least $31.00 civilians and comes after saudi arabia confirmed one of its planes crashed in the same age and keep the rebels say they shot down the aircraft. casals foreign minister says recent efforts to resolve the gulf dispute was suspended at the beginning of january mohamed been on the run and antoni told a security conference in munich the discussions began in october to try to end the blockade of cars out by 4 arab states. and the head of the world health organization has warned the international community it's impossible to know which direction the coronavirus epidemic will take the rally in europe reported its fast death when an elderly chinese tourist died and from its. now ending almost 2 decades of violence in afghanistan has been high on the agenda at the security

conversations and then secondly concurrently with our nato allies in brussels now the u.s. has done it steal its partners must follow other nato countries still have 8000 personnel in the country serving alongside of 12000 u.s. troops we are not leaving afghanistan but we are prepared to adjust our force level if the taller bar on them assert their will and the ability to deduce violence and make compromises cut out of the negotiations with the taliban that are gone on for over a year with the afghan government president ashraf ghani had demanded a ceasefire be put in place before any deal in the step the taliban have only agreed to what's being called a reduction in violence the critical test is going to be will be will the exam in election as the mechanism the crucial mechanism of referring to that
one people in the still have the view come of course afghanistan's last election is still not been formally decided ashraf ghani has the most number of votes but he's not been declared the winner that is going to make things difficult in the coming days because afghanistan needs to choose the delegation for those talks that it now needs to have with the taliban james bays out just 0 munich. south sudan's president says he's agreed to a painful compromise and that meeting the deadline to form a unity government saw the kid is cutting the number of states from 32 to 10 that's a major demand of the opposition to formally end the civil war kim and his rival react michel have 8 days left to agree on a joint agreement for the wilds youngest country after 2 failed attempts the decision was reached by the presidency. with several options
