2:02 pm
for the 1st time this year by 3 and a half percent after many factories reopened 20 years in beijing with more on how china's trade industry has moved on since being hit by the pandemic. there is some real recovery in chinese trade and this is really a surprise to many analysts they were predicting up to an 11 percent drop and some people are tribute ing this to the fact that perhaps during april there was an increase in exports of p.p.t. or protective medical gear such as mosques and respiration is also one other analysts are speculating that's because there was a backlog that needed to be filled in terms of export orders or all customers were front loading orders ahead of what they expected to be a bad pandemic year and also the other thing is that paps this concern about demand dropping maybe that's yet to hit china's exports maybe with still maybe the worst

2:04 pm
surprisingly the economy sort of gone off a cliff and it seems to be stabilizing at very low levels now and we start well as lockdowns these we should say demand rice slowly the other side of things is as far as the virus concerns everyone is taking tiptoeing basically into. getting back to activity but we know from the whole social distance saying and the behaviors going forward that people talk about a new normal we don't call it that we call it the new abnormal what we're seeing is a here just destruction on both demand and supply and a permanent hit to consumer confidence this will this will people will become more cautionary they save more which in turn restrains the recovery companies cut back on investment that is also restraints to recovery and the reality is we're going to see these very very sharp rise we get us employment data tomorrow the official unemployment numbers we will see unemployment come back down but it's good it took
2:05 pm
us 10 years in the u.s. for unemployment to to get back to where it was in 2007. new data from the u.k. has shown that people from black asian and other ethnic minority backgrounds are more likely to die from coven 1000 than white people they released by the office of national statistics show black men and women are 4 times more likely to die after being diagnosed with kovan $1000.00 than those who are white the risk of death is also significantly higher for men and women who are bangladeshi pakistani or india the report says such people have been disproportionately affected by underlying health conditions and economic disadvantage is china hall is in london says researchers are struggling to work out why black people and ethnic minorities are more at risk. you know in this concluding at the moment that it is 4 times more likely that if a b.a. and the person would dive wrote a virus of his or her wide ethnic counterpart now i'm standing in brant it's a barbara of london in the northwest of london an area that has a very high percentage of ca and even residents it's also one of the hardest hit
