where vital cross is to deliver in the most efficient way possible the humanitarian . those people deserve ok let's talk about those 2 crossings the u.n. and humanitarian groups say 2800000 people in syria's rebel held northwest have been depending on those corridors for aid russia insists only one of them is necessary it says bubble howa accounts for 85 percent of a deliveries from now on only that one will remain open however the us as 1300000 people living north of aleppo depend on another crossing bubbles alarm though a push to keep aid entering through that crossing well that was the push that failed our diplomatic route to james bays has more now from the un. this is the position that russia backed by china wanted and they have now got it there were some other things that russia and china wanted and that's why in the end in the
3:03 am
vote they abstain didn't vote for it and that was on sanctions they wanted some language condemning the sanctions on syria particularly the sanctions by the u.s. and they said at the time of economic hardship in syria it was not the time to pursue those sanctions that language didn't get into get into the final version of the resolution although russia wanted it in there and that's why russia and china abstained dominican republic also abstained for the opposite reasons they were so unhappy with this process and the fact that the people of syria particularly northern syria are going to have a reduced flow of aid as a result of all of this i spoke to the belgian and german ambassadors a short time ago they had been leading the negotiations they were very tired and very frustrated they though are professional diplomats and were not going to say anything to me that was too damning but i've also spoken to other officials off the
3:04 am
record and it's very clear there is a very very bitter atmosphere in the security council. the g. is a board member and former director of the syrian american medical society he says russia is leaving the u.n. with a safe options to deliver the aid to syria there is a lucia right now if it does that open for the next 12 months does compromise meet here in the north worse syria now that it's think that 2 points. the 1st one right now with the closing of berber said that come from eyes is the live view of one 3rd of the humanitarian aid to the northwest of syria so i think the russian numbers are not very accurately and numbers are more accurate than that tells you what to do the number of returning it goes through ups and out so right now the resources and bear with how it had to be scaled up by 50 percent the trucks have to travel more routes to get to the people this is significant expenses and danger that is in
3:05 am
an underfunded operation a huge you know operation northwoods syria but the other concerning point that you know michel how the russian diplomats will be rationalizing that is that when you close. you push the u.n. aid through babbitt how and it's forwards we know that hey at the. controls good portion of the road that goes beyond babbitt how now with this resolution that russia pushed for is pushing most of the humanitarian aid through the un agencies through its control by its ts at any security comprise or in an attempt by i hate the flu shot today virt aid that will shut off the operation compromising the meter an operational reach of it for everybody in northwest syria the us president donald trump has worn a face mask in public for the 1st time he was visiting a military hospital in maryland meanwhile the u.s.
3:06 am
a soon another daily hif a new infections more than 66000 infections being confirmed on friday but before leaving for the hospital mr trump said he was wearing the mask just because he was visiting a hospital. i think when you're in the hospital especially in that particular setting where you're going to do a lot of soldiers people that in some cases just got off the operating table i think it's a great figure where a man's got to have a bit against bad but i do believe that by a time in a. particular heinous outside that will read military hospital and best at a maryland women's to trump met some patients. the hospital behind me not overrun with patients and one of the reasons experts say that's the case because in this area people are told if you go out in public put on a mask in the states that have seen the hardest hit areas the numbers are going up dramatically most of those states are not mandating that people put on a mask and a lot of people say this comes from u.s. president donald trump he once told reporters that he wouldn't give them the
3:07 am
satisfaction of seeing him with the mask on their his tone has started to change a little bit and he said that he actually thinks he looks good in a mask like the lone ranger he said he said when he went to walter reed hospital which he did on saturday that he would wear a mask and there are pictures that many will hope send the message to his supporters that it's ok to put on a mask it's an easy inexpensive way to make sure the virus doesn't spread as rapidly as it is but then there's a caveat with the president he told reporters that he sees no problem wearing masks in hospitals basically saying that they have a time and a place so in the message with his picture that masks are ok but with his words it's not necessarily mandatory. there's also been in the number of deaths from the virus to 42 states and the district of columbia which is seen here in orange recorded more new cases last week than the week before all those in gray numbers level off or actually full 24 states to see the number of deaths rise over the same
3:08 am
period there often is the rise in cases means a spike in deaths will follow most noticeably texas saw it nearly twice as many deaths last week as the 7 days up to the beginning of last week let's talk to dr paul she's an infectious disease epidemiologist at the melanie to come in college of public health at the university of arizona she joins us on skype from tucson arizona. welcome to al-jazeera once the signalling when you see donald trump wearing a face mask. i'm sorry hello thank you for having me i think it is ridiculous that we are actually headlining noons about our president baring a mask this is something that should have been done from the very beginning i think what the difference here it's in terms of this wire there is the biology of the miners and there is the behavior of human beings we have kind of figured out or at
3:09 am
least we know what precent be doing in terms of controlling the minor is the piece that we are not able to get under control is our own behavior and that is basically what we're seeing right now when our president gets mixed messages a lot of people are not reeling to do the things that the public health or us them to do and the fact that he say's he would manage their own mask and there is a time and place for it that is not how public health people are thinking about it is it is ridiculous that we are actually talking about trying to varying amounts as headline news but that is the reality of our country right now your speciality you've already hit the nail on the head your speciality is public health so when these see mr trump wearing face mask not the lone ranger's face mask but an anti coronavirus face mask when they see that for those people who are so
3:10 am
vociferously angry and they want to hide in their right to not wear a face mask you know for them is a massive issue i guess of civil liberties how will they react when it comes to oh mr trump's not wearing a face mask. i think if that is exactly what he should be doing he should be doing more effect not just in the hospital she should actually be doing it so that people who are die hard fans of are able to model that behavior when it comes down to the same thing as men we are trying to get our children to learn a new habit it's not by us telling them it is by us modeling the be a view that our kids learn it i think it goes down to life in general if we want people to bear a mask we have to model that behavior not just talk about it and that's what i think trump should be doing not just talking about it but actually modeling the behavior so that the people who truly are his true supporters would actually do
3:11 am
that and we won't have the kind of a scene where do you think the pressure has come if there is pressure the pressure on him to wear a mask because this time yesterday we were reporting here on this channel that he hasn't had taken a briefing from anthony fauji for 2 months i'm mystified she saw him a month ago a mr trump didn't ask him any person and relevant questions about the pushback against covert 19. well all i can say is and i don't want to be political about this but masks have become a very partisan issue here and it has become a political issue and what we are seeing is there is a massive drop in popularity in how trump is managing this and demick and i think that is going to affect what happens in november and i think you realize this event and g.o.p. realizes it and now they're trying to see how they can do some damage control and probably that is one of the things that his advisors might be talking to him about
3:12 am
but you know we are not in the white house and we're not insiders so i can only guess i can only think that would be the possible reason why he's going back there is so much pressure on him right now that he he has no choice but he might just yield a little not that much ok we have to leave it there dr in tucson arizona great to get your thoughts on this story thank you so much. thank you. mom is opposition is calling on supporters to stay out on the streets after 2 more protest leaders were detained security forces raided the headquarters of the influential cleric maclin was part of the opposition alliance and the opposition is demanding the president steps down for failing to end the violence by armed groups and to revive the economy at least 4 people died and 50 others were injured in clashes on friday lived also an intentional we've done i mean it is you know intention to quickly put in place an executive to restore order in our country and reflect on challenges we

face and that will be viewed in all of our countries vital forces from people demanding the president able him because he should step down. not just a moment repression reinforces our determination and we will continue with our watch until the end of the regime if i became a which today is a cancer from ali mohamed salama is a freelance journalist based in mali he gave us this update on what's happening in the capital. right now in mccool city shown. and turns because of the protests. in some districts of insight about record. around 60 percent have been arrested and looting the last litter of $4.00 and $5.00 have to be called for there is nation of the president and civilian deserve this obvious sense of. who we can see

delayed and are insufficient israel degree impose tight restrictions earlier this week after the number of cases increased or a force that explains why people are protesting in such large numbers. it's an issue of what they say is not enough government support to the people hit worst by the economic fallout of the pandemic the self-employed small businesses creative industries the hospitality industry the kinds of jobs which perhaps don't have the same kind of regularity and safety net of other forms of employment and i've been looking to the government for more support in the 1st wave of the pandemic there were complaints that people that felt they were entitled under the rules to certain levels of aid it just didn't come through and now they say that not enough enough is being done given the fact that we are in the midst of a 2nd wave in israel 1200 new cases reported during the course of the last day on friday benjamin netanyahu sat down with some of the groups being represented in
3:22 am
this big protest trying to hear from them saying that he had listened to them and that support would be on the way he had just come from announcing a new round of measures including some $1700.00 every 2 months for small businesses up to a total of 144 $1000.00 in aid of a larger businesses saying that people who applied in the past and haven't got their money would do so with no checks it would come through straightaway but as you can see in the midst of this pandemic this 2nd wave people are just cramming into that square to say that not enough is being done. iran's president says his country can't afford to go back into lockdown despite a rise in the number of new infections there more than a quarter of a 1000000 people have been confirmed as having covert 90 deadly surely kid tad to be cast because we cannot hold o. economic activities any longer that there is no country in the world capable of doing so the only way to break through this tough time is to observe the social
3:23 am
distancing recommendations a lock down is the easiest measure that can be taken against the virus but the economic repercussions of the lockdown and resulting resentment among the public we have to ban gathering and this includes weightings funerals in conferences any similar groupings are not necessary we also have to urge all people to adjust their way of life during this period of time as the number of infected cases has risen of the past weeks and. thousands of people in eastern russia have protested against the arrest last week of a regional governor who is accused of ordering several murders. the. killings happened 15 years ago before surrogate for girl into politics he denies any involvement for gul was elected governor of the color off squeege and by a landslide in 2018 beating president that he may put his candidate demonstrators chanted antiproton slogans as they demanded for girls release. the democratic republic of congo's justice minister. resigned following

3:25 am
a least 3000000 members across southern africa so it back till really was about leadership of the church since he the previous leader passed away in about 2016 at the time of his death it seems that he had left behind in a state of at least $26000000.00 so i wonder standing at this point is much of the tensions around the leadership of this church is related to income of the church membership of the church and its results is in a hostage situation that so at least $200.00 people will look on the premises kept in the church while these factions vassals it out at least 5 people were killed and in fact all of them were killed in a vehicle just outside of the church and it seems that they were burnt burnt to death it's not quite certain given what the police have said so far but their bodies were found in the school and here we also know one other person who's been
