1:00 am
how juicy are we going. to take. or are on the way. global corona virus infections hit a new daily high while in the u.s. florida reports a record 15000 new cases in one day and 3 generations of bollywood's botching family had i covered 1000 is india records another record in cases that. hello i'm maryam namazie in london you're watching al-jazeera also coming up on the program poland's president celebrates a narrow lead in the country's basically 4th election but with less than one
1:01 am
percent between him and his rival it's still too close to call. and the aid agencies are warning that russia's victory in limiting syria a deliveries to just one border crossing will cost lives and intensify the suffering of 1300000 people. welcome to the program from the americas to asia the coronavirus pandemic is infecting people around the planet wreck all rights the world health organization has reported more than 230000 cases in 24 hours the highest single day increase since the outbreak began globally the death rate is remaining steady around $5000.00 people are dying each day but in the world's worst affected country infections and fatalities are both rising the u.s. state of florida has shot at the national record for daily cases more than 15000
1:02 am
reported on sunday that's higher than any of america's other states at the peak of their outbreaks well to put it into perspective if florida were a country in itself it would rank 4th in the world for the most new cases each day behind the united states brazil and india the surge in infections have already exceeded the highest daily tallies reported by any european country so far the total number infected in florida is now nearing 270000 more than 4000 people have died across the united states more than 135000 people have died nationally. well patty cohen joins us live now from outside a hospital in maryland and if we can look at the situation in florida 1st another depressing milestone has been paused how all the hospitals coping and how much pressure is it pushing on the health system that. well if you think
1:03 am
about it the whole reason the country shut down is so we wouldn't see what happened in the hospitals in spain and italy happen here or to the hospital behind me now here in maryland they locked it down and basically they've seen the positivity rate stay below 5 percent but in florida the positivity rates that's the number of tests being taken. could coming back positive is now 12 almost 20 percent so as you mentioned more than 15000 cases and let's think about this virus what we know about this virus your sick and spreading the disease for days if not up to 2 weeks before you actually start to feel the symptoms so if these 15000 people were getting even one other person sick more likely 2 or 3 these numbers are going to be astronomical and likely the hospitals are going to collapse and many cities they already have or they're at least at capacity and let's not forget florida this is a state with a mostly elderly population so they're going to see the death toll continue to rise
1:04 am
but one thing they have not done is really change any of what they are doing when it comes to social behavior you're not seeing people being told by the state that they have to wear masks you're not seeing them close churches or they have closed many bars but churches are still happening now salons hair salons so these businesses are still happening and people are not wearing masks meaning these numbers could be just a horrific beginning right and it would appear that there are no plans to roll back on the reopening so many businesses and companies are going to turn main open for now. they are and that is unless the governor of the census decides to change attacked has shown no indication of this excuse me of course it started early in the 2 you know he reopened faster than many of the other states in america and 2 weeks later he did
1:05 am
a victory lap he chastised the media and said you all is playing to doomsday picture there is no truth to what's happening well it wasn't just 2 weeks but we saw a lot of people in florida and a lot of these states that are having this problem we saw them all rush to bars not wearing masks and starting to see now on mostly republican governor saying they don't want to take the steps are saying you have to wear masks we saw in texas the governor changed course but what we saw there is local officials said we're not going to wear masks so the idea about wearing a mask in this country it's now become a partisan issue if you wear one you're saying you're a democrat if you don't you're saying you're republican and you're not going to you're not going to cave to what the government wants you to do now it could change because you're starting to see a different tone from the u.s. president donald trump he was seen in public wearing a mask but that was at a hospital and he said well in certain situations like in hospitals you should wear a mask so not the exact indorsement that you saw public health officials say was necessary to stop these horrific numbers from continuing decline thank you very
1:06 am
much with the latest on this story patty calling in joining us there from washington thank you patty so let's turn to south africa now have been some changes that the president reinstating a nighttime curfew and a ban on alcohol sales as his country grapples with a corona virus outbreak that's infecting 500 people every hour more than 13000 new 1000 cases have been reported over the past 24 hours the highest on record for the country 84000 people have died of course ralton in just the last week. we've now decided that the so you the dispensing and the distribution of oklahoma will be suspended with immediate effect. there is no clear evidence that the resumption of of course aliens has resulted in substantial pressure being put on hospitals including trauma and i.c.u.
1:07 am
units therefore as an additional measure to reduce the pressure on hospitals a curfew will be put in place between the hours of 9 pm and 4 am for me to mill in johannesburg says the government is modifying its response but also africa had quite a strict lockdown in place as the 1st infections were recorded back in march and april some of those restrictions have been eased but the president also said that south africans aren't at hearing to the regulations that are meant to try and stop the spread of covert 19 he says people aren't wearing maust they're so massive social gatherings especially on weekends massive funerals where people are likely to catch coronavirus because they're not adhering to any of the health regulations in place so that was very much the gist of that address but also given the surge in
1:08 am
numbers in recent weeks you also mentioned how. a quarter of the infections are quarter of the deaths recorded and then i was sitting at just over 4000 where in the last week alone and now south africa is seeing an average of 12000 new infections every day and every day we're seeing a new record in the number of infections and just how concerned the government is at this point and this is what's led to the government reversing or backpedaling to some extent around some of the easing of restrictions. well india is reporting a record surge of nearly $29000.00 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours on tuesday a weeklong lockdown will be imposed in bengaluru one of the country's largest cities in the capital of the southern state of karnataka the new cases take the national total of people who have been infected up to nearly 850000 at least 22 and
1:09 am
a half 1000 people have died. meanwhile 3 generations of bollywood's family have now tested positive for corona virus former miss wallace. and her 8 year old daughter have been infected it comes a day after her father and all of the hollywood legend amitabh bachchan and her husband check well admitted to hospital the cover of 19 as well. poland's presidential race is still too close to call exit polls have given the conservative incumbent a large in a lead with almost 51 percent is slightly up against socially liberal. is predicted to receive just over 49 percent of the vote so i gather reports. an extraordinarily tight race and the result on my couch by
1:10 am
a small margin underdo the is projected to stay in office 5 years in the role propped up by the rightwing law and justice party yet for all the control they wield and poland do death failed to secure a comfortable when so yes not a bad example to the good i want to make it clear and strong that i am happy about my victory for now it's only an exit poll victory but looking at the past results as you will surratt it has grown in my favor 6. this is the man snapping at the heels of the income but. also as centrist pro european union man he launched his campaign at the last minute but it's proven to be a spoiler for president do this a short when. all the votes just need to be counted which in truth even you know rock you want to put everyone in poland but i'm absolutely convinced when we count each vote will be victorious and we will definitely win and
1:11 am
redo those deeply conservative and. homophobic agenda was an appeal to his party's nationalist base his constitutional reforms that we can the independence of the country's judiciary also put him at odds with the you compared with. his liberal program called new solidarity was designed to evoke the movement that helped and communist rule in poland he is seeking stronger relations with the e.u. than his competitor campaigned on but despite the clash between 2 radically different agendas voters came out in record numbers the highest turnout in the country since 1989 the final results won't be declared until choose day and there will also be the votes of some half a 1000000 poles who are living outside the country in a race this tight every single one of them will count on it i go. a day aid groups are saying they are deeply concerned of restrictions on the flow
1:12 am
of aid into syria u.n. security council agreed on friday to a compromise that leaves only one border crossing with turkey and instead of 2 among them are half a 1000000 children as are reports. there of enjoyed nearly a decade of conflict the syrians are now facing even more uncertainty nearly 4000000 are in camps stranded on the border with turkey they live in a rebel held territory in the northwest while relying on international a bubble however is a lifeline for the 3000000 syrians in italy a province about asylum or which was the main entry point for a channel to civilians in general. and i freend has been shut down after russian pressure for many civilians this could have catastrophic consequences when i think. we're facing
1:13 am
a shortage of aid to food and clothes the important thing is bread people can't afford to buy it from outside we need basics like we said sugar and cooking oil and it has. them the situation is very bad we don't get enough aid but people depend on it to survive in the camp if even less comes they will face huge hardship with 2 crossing points we're barely surviving will be under even more pressure if it's reduced to one. humanitarian aid agencies worry that reducing the number of crossing points will further choke off vital a for years the un ran its humanitarian operations through 4 crossing points 2 in turkey one in iraq and one in jordan. the international organization warns stop being cross border aid delivery will cause suffering and death now this is happening at
1:14 am
a time when the humanitarian crisis in the country has actually got worse we had almost a 1000000 people displaced earlier this year so we are very concerned that the amount of access for humanitarian aid is being refused at the very time when we actually need more access stranded and surviving mainly through a serious face another major crisis with covert 19 spreading in opposition territory limited to a delivery to one border crossing will also likely further delay much needed medical supplies to contain the outbreak for now russia will have a bigger say over cross border operations and for many displaced syrians pushed by the army to retake rebel held areas will leave them with 2 options face starvation or surrender house in marbella 0. it was al jazeera live from london much more
