8:02 pm
would happen the event of a and inlcuded in the document widespread coronavirus outbreak. published today are measures to help businesses who might get ministers say a fit of workers could into trouble over the coming be off sick during peak weeks. weeks and months. but already, there are signs of issues in the supply chains school to be closed, and the of some uk companies military to be called in to support and shortages in some key products, like hand sanitiser. civilian health services. ministers say it's likely the uk would be our business correspondent significantly affected in the coming emma simpson reports from coventry. weeks. for most people they say looking for a hand sanitiser? symptoms will only be mild—to—moderate, but the government seems everyone is. they are out of stock at this small says the elderly will be most at pharmacy in coventry risk. evidence from other countries and they're filling the gaps with the next best thing. suggest that 1% of those infected we can't get any hand sanitisers at all. could die. while today the the demand has been really, government announced that the number of confirmed cases in the uk to be really high, a shortage nationally. we are looking at maybe 50—60 people 51. 12 are known to have fully a day have been asking recovered from the virus. our first for particular hand sanitisers. report deceiving us from our local businesses have been asking political editor. # wash your hands... to buy hand sanitisers #. taxi drivers, hairdressers. the chancellor washing his hands. a simple instruction to us all. today the message is getting through. hand washes are flying as catchy as the song that inspired off the shelves. this class in belfast. are we stocking up on anything else? has coronavirus impacted what you are buying?
8:03 pm
no. wash your hands is still business as usual? the mantra, but the government is now yes. outlining a lot more. i've got no problem with it. if we are going to die, this is complex. the prime minister we will die anyway, so what's the appearing with the experts alongside. difference? we had not changed anything, really, may be washing our i fully understand public hands a little bit more. that's about it. concern, your concern. i don't think there's keeping the country safe any need to panic. is the government's overriding priority. some shoppers may well be buying a few more extra bits and pieces. the plan does not set out supermarkets say there is no real need. what the government will like other businesses, do, it sets out the steps they are making contingency plans to that we could take keep us fed, and to keep stores open. at the right time and we are not seeing any change on in consumer behaviour at the moment. the basis of the scientific advice. it is business as usual, supplies are good, supermarkets are well are you telling people today that sooner or later all of our lives stocked, so we are not seeing any problems. will be disrupted somehow? but one supply chain expert told me the answer to the question is, i'm supermarkets might have to do things differently. afraid, at this stage, i think it is just too early to say. retailers are ready from a supply perspective to the chief medical officer, because they were ready for brexit. what is your best guess, if you can, of how many the difference here is people will actually get this labour availability. disease? they might need to think a bit out of the box in terms of how they collaborate with each it will not go above 80%.
8:04 pm
for planning purposes, of course, other and share resources, and perhaps increase channels we go up to the highest rated like home shopping. reasonably could, but in reality, they don't want customers the proportion of the population who to panic, either. get infected is likely to be lower right now, we all want to keep than that and probably a lot lower clean, and for some, than that. there's always an opportunity with more than 50 cases to get customers in. round the country now, officials here are working notjust on plans to contain the spread but emergency emma simpson, bbc news. laws in case the worst today's plan also includes should happen. the emergency registration of health there is a sense in government now, it is a major professionals who have recently retired, and the introduction of emergency indemnity practical and political challenge. coverage for health workers, to strengthen the if, or maybe when, we get to capacity of the nhs. the stage where it can no longer be to get more on this, we can cross contained, to the health service, to the isle of islay and speak the economy, all of our lives, there to patricia farrington, who is a former radiographer could be major disruption and who joins us via webcam. for several months. within a few weeks, the government might put limits on thanks very much indeed forjoining people gathering at big events like concerts or football matches. us. if large numbers thanks very much indeed forjoining of officers take ill, us. i hope you can hear us and i hope we can hear you. what is your the police might only focus on serious crime and keeping order. the army could step response to what the government's in if they are overstretched, and all in all, one in five workers planted today? would you come could be absent from forward and volunteer your services? work. no surprise, then, the bank
8:05 pm
of england governor admits it could i think there's a severe worry that hurt the economy in a big way. it will be going to affect people the bank's role is to help uk businesses like myself. i would like to speak and households managed to run for the people who have also been economic shock that could prove large but will ultimately retired for a long time. we would be temporary. different businesses not be safe going back to work, it and different age groups won't be affected in the same ways. would be almost impossible. what at this bingo hall in great yarmouth, they about more recently retired staff? are already doing is that not much more temperature testing. and the elderly are straightforward? they would need to the most vulnerable. it puts people's minds be reregistered. you have to keep up at rest, really, especially those that go into places like this. with all the latest information and we get flu every year, all the latest causes, which take with so we've just got to do what they say. months. overall, ithink all the latest causes, which take months. overall, i think this could whether it's a school closed in ta ke months. overall, i think this could take a lot of months for doctors and devon or concerns in dundee, plans are being prepared in all corners of the country. it's a serious situation, nurses. at the same rules apply. we but it is being treated seriously, with well established plans being activated, and we are not powerless in the face of this. would not be safe to practice unless you might soon see one of these, like in sutton coldfield, pods for
8:06 pm
patients who suspect they might we we re would not be safe to practice unless we were back up to date. this would have the infection to stop them walking the virus into a&e. ta ke we were back up to date. this would take ages. also, i am very concerned the authorities hope that the best laid plans could about, we would be asked to bail out avoid the worst case for us all. of government which has consistently laura kuenssberg, bbc news. been dismantling the nhs, so there's no room. there are no spare staff, if the virus becomes no room. there are no spare staff, widespread, some non—urgent hospital no spare beds, they closed lots and care may be delayed to focus on treating those who are infected, lots of jobs while recently retired doctors and nurses may be called back to work. no spare beds, they closed lots and lots ofjobs and they're expecting our health editor hugh pym has been us lots ofjobs and they're expecting us to come back now. not me looking at some of the key personally but people like me, to measures for the nhs —— come back out of the goodness of our and the challenges they might pose. hearts to bail them out. i think ministers and officials think this is unfair. unfair and the virus can still be contained, but they are clear that if case numbers accelerate, new measures will be needed, such as school closures. insulting. even if people the key thing then is to get the timing right politically might say, yes, there's for managing the virus. been austerity and there hasn't been enough spent on the nhs, if we are what we really want to do ata enough spent on the nhs, if we are is to implement whatever at a moment of national crisis and is necessary at the time, depending on how the epidemic goes. with people —— and people with at the right time, over a 12 week medical skills can help people of period or so is probably all ages to get through this, they what is going to be needed to do it, so we don't want to go to early.
8:07 pm
what might that mean could be helpful in the future and for nhs staffing? surely people should think about recruiting retired doctors coming forward. that's not the and nurses to return to the health service is part of the plan, problem. it's up to each individual. along with volunteers. this consultant in glasgow just making the point that as it is thinks he would work on after retirement if needed, and others would return at present to ask people to come to work if they were fit. back now after being away for some considerable time. it would not be safe. how long have you been retired i think the good will that exists yourself? over safe. how long have you been retired yourself? 0ver13 safe. how long have you been retired within the national health service yourself? over 13 years, safe. how long have you been retired yourself? 0ver13 years, a and in retired doctors is very long—time. yourself? 0ver13 years, a strong, and i think you would long-time. talk us through what you need to do. you need to be trained have a significant number of people who would return to help out and registered ? during a crisis. need to do. you need to be trained but not all medical and registered? in the last couple professionals feel the same way. of years, you would probably not have so many of years, you would probably not have so many courses of years, you would probably not have so many courses to catch up on. i don't want to come back to work, i would have an enormous amount of and i don't think any of the health stuff to catch up on and also i am care professionals that have retired should be asked over 70. i'm slower than i was. my to come back to work. i don't think we would be safe. i think the logistics would be almost impossible, to retrain people to a safe level. husband was an ambulance man, he would have an awful lot to catch up on. i think the government seems to think we can just jump there are plans for on. i think the government seems to think we canjustjump back in and medicines and hospitals. it's ok, but really honestly, it's under the direction of health much more serious than that. is officials, stockpiles of key drugs
8:08 pm
and protective clothing held there anything else the government by manufacturers would be distributed across the nhs can do, because if people, if there and social care, supplies built up to cover a possible no—deal brexit last year will be used. are staff shortages and even if they the world health organization today get the army medics in for example, warned of shortages. they still need more, what else can if patient numbers increase they still need more, what else can they do? i'm not sure what they can in hospitals, nonurgent planned do. i think it'sjust operations would be cancelled to free up beds for they do? i'm not sure what they can care of the sickest. do. i think it's just what's so across the population, happened because they treated the who is most at risk? nhs so badly. if they did not cut so experts say around four out of five much staff at the beginning, so many of those who get the virus beds and staff, there would be a will experience only mild or moderate symptoms, little bit extra. there would be rather like seasonal flu, these people around. they're gonna but what about the rest? have to bring in private providers some of whom will need hospital treatment. ata have to bring in private providers at a great expense, i would imagine. the risk of severe illness caused by the virus is higher of course i'm totally opposed to amongst the elderly. private medicine, but this is what that's also the case for people with underlying health conditions. the government has been heading particularly cardiovascular towards and it's quite frightening. diseases, so heart disease and people who have previously had do you think there is finally enough, capacity in the private stroke, but also people sector? how much capacity is there? with respiratory problems, so long—term lung conditions, and also people with diabetes, i have no idea how much. i live on a because we know people with diabetes also have immune systems that small island. i've been single—handed here for 36 years. i'm are not as strong.
8:09 pm
one of the aims of the government very isolated. i have no idea what plans is to delay the peak the private capacity is, but i hope of any viral epidemic. there's a lot of them. it will cost a lot of money. patricia, many that at least buys precious time to continue researching new drugs and vaccines. thanks indeed for your thoughts. my hugh pym, bbc news. pleasure. the world health organization says we are in unchartered territory i'm joined from our cambridge as far as the coronavirus studio by rob doran, is concerned, and there a former civil servant who has are varying estimates worked on civil emergencies and now about its fatality rate. it's still not been runs black dog crisis management, declared a pandemic. who advise companies on resillience. the last time that happened thanks very much forjoining us. do was with swine flu in 2009. you think the government plan that our medical correspondent, has been published today does go far fergus walsh, looks at how coronavirus compares to flu enough? i think the first thing to outbreaks over the past century. recognise that actually this is an extreme the unsettling time for of it was a new virus which swept across the world. us. “— swine flu emerged in mexico in 2009 extreme the unsettling time for of us. —— extremely unsettling. it's the sort of thing we plan for and and quickly became a pandemic. have been for several years. but the there were dire warnings government has posted today, in my about what could happen here. opinion, is proportionate and swine flu is now to certainly addresses what could be a widespread to be contained.o very challenging and evolving scenario over the coming weeks. when but it was such a mild disease you look at hospital capacity, for
8:10 pm
example, in your view from what you for most, it had a limited impact on the nhs and daily life. know do you think that is going to the swine flu virus shows how weary we need to be be able to accommodate and intensive of predictions with new diseases. ca re be able to accommodate and intensive care units for example enough people in 2009, the reasonable because we know the elderly are in worst—case scenario was 65,000 deaths in the uk. particular more vulnerable? it's in fact, there were 457. going to be a huge challenge as with any winter, any kind of flu season there were three pandemics in the 20th century which is extremely challenging for the had a far bigger global nhs, who worked tirelessly to try impact than swine flu. and manage as best they can. the asian flu in the late 50s challenge with a disease like this as it comes on top of any potential because between one and 4 million deaths, as did hong kong winter flu, as it comes on top of any potential winterflu, and as it comes on top of any potential winter flu, and i as it comes on top of any potential winterflu, and i think that's flu a decade later. what's driving the government decision to try and delay what they both had a mortality rate of around 0.2%. referred to as the peak so when most that's two in every people are sick, after that flu thousand people infected. period to give the nhs a little bit spanish flu in 1918 killed up of breathing space to manage to 50 million people, chemists but in any case if we reach what's known as the reasonable more than died in the first world war. worst—case scenario, so the highest it had a death rate of 2%, levels of illness that the government have set their planning and the best estimate of for it will be a stretch for all of the death rate for the new oui’ for it will be a stretch for all of our public services because so many coronavirus is 1% of those infected, people will be off sick and so many people will be off sick and so many but there's huge uncertainty. people will be off sick and so many people will be requiring that supports from the health sector and it's likely huge
8:11 pm
numbers of very mild elsewhere. and how does government cases are being missed, which would lower that figure substantially. go about managing, for example, making sure there's enough police in it's essential to keep some the streets in where necessary, for perspective about this new virus. the total number of deaths example? because law and order and worldwide since december the supplies of food and medicine is now more than 3000. get to the right places, these are another infectious disease, really complex and interlinked, aren't they? absolutely but what's tuberculosis, tb, caused by bacteria, kills 40,000 people reassuring or what i hope it's reassuring or what i hope it's reassuring is the fact that actually a day, despite there we talk about a concept called being an effective treatment. business continuity, we may have heard before it about organisations and how they can deliver normal staying with coronavirus, business with the reduced number of a london student who needed surgery people or reduced facilities but the after being attacked by a group who shouted insults emergency services, big organisations like the supermarkets and food suppliers will have plans in italy the total number has to manage a reduction in capacity. increased to over two and a half it does not mean there will be no difficulties, it will not feel thousand. 79 people have now died. different to you and me on the the authorities are considering a street, but i'm fairly confident new quarantine zone around the city. that the organisations that need to plan for this are. that does not iran has announced another big leap in the number of the virus. the mean there will not be impacts, though. what are the worst impacts figure is now more than to housing we we re
8:12 pm
though. what are the worst impacts we were see do you think? it's good 300. 77 people are known to have died, but the realfigures to be issues with supply chains particularly. demand for services, 300. 77 people are known to have died, but the real figures are yet to be bigger. at the highest number of fatalities outside china. the public services in particular, so as an example you might start to see south korean president has put the there are shortages of different country into what he called a state products that may have a knock on of war to tackle coronavirus. he's economic and social effect, if we start to have some of these social ordered all government to operate 24 distancing measures at the higher hours a day. south korea is the end of the plan to the government where the afflicted country after china with more than 5000 confirmed has talked about that will feel quite strange. the advice is not to cases and more than 30 deaths. in go somewhere for the advice would be france, more than 200 people have not to do what you planned to do, that's very disruptive and of course been infected. the government says it will take control of the reduction and supply of facemasks unsettling for anybody that is and all existing stocks in order to affected by that. let alone of course of the actual health impacts distribute them to health the disease itself. many thanks for professionals. joining us. staying with coronavirus, a london student who needed surgery after being attacked by a group who shouted insults at him about the virus has told the bbc it has tainted his image of the capital. and we'll find out how this jonathan mok was walking along one story and many others of the busiest parts of london are covered in tomorrow's front on oxford street when he was pages at 10:40 and 11:30 this assaulted in what police evening in the papers. say was a racially motivated attack. our guests joining me tonight he's been speaking to bbc are sonia sodha from

but a complicating factor after more than a decade is the uber wealthy former new york on the high street, mayor, mike bloomberg, on the ballot for the first time. bernadette called time on her shop. he has spent an eye watering near half $1 billion of his own money on tv adverts alone, and who knows she didn't want to sign what impact he will have. a new nine year lease so now she works from home. i'm mike bloomberg and i i haven't got the overheads approve this message. here as i had in the shop. we looked at moving further into the marketplace, £3.58. and we were talking about thousands here on the lake, they are of pounds a month, rather announcing the winner. it's taken a weekend rather than hundreds. fishing to decide. across the uk, more than 17,000 if only the race for the democratic shops are forecast to close this year, that is up 9% on 2019. nomination would be resolved so quickly. is it going to be but this town has something others you guys this year? by the time that has been don't, a multimillionaire who is decided, the ice will have long gone. building new tourist attractions jon sopel, bbc news, vermont. and restoring auckland castle. our correspondent gary o'donoghue is at a polling station in north carolina. and now, independent retailers are investing too. is the sense that actually ours i used to work for could be decisive in this race? nissan in sunderland. martin is putting his life savings into a new cafe. yeah, ithink this is a massive could be decisive in this race? yeah, i think some things are going to get sorted out. in a sense we've career change and a bit had a much more radical sending out of a leap of faith. oh, yeah, completely. like you said, there is one empty of the field, then perhaps we
8:21 pm
expected in the last couple of days next door to me, one the other side before super tuesday got under way empty, so it is a little worrying. with all of those people putting ijust hope that by opening this, their weight behind joe biden, but someone else might be encouraged this could see it further thinning to open up a gift shop next door, and that hopefully after the latest today. not least because for those in the bottom of has a domino effect. people need to take the town back for what it should be. the field gets harder and harder to the view here is that our raise money and without money you high streets are not dying, they are evolving, finding cannot carry on. if you are not a new place in people's lives and this town is at the start getting the support. i think we will of its journey. getting the support. i think we will get a much clearer idea of how sarah corker, bishop auckland. widespread this abounds that the former vice president has got, it's easy stating that a crust of the the duke and duchess of cambridge southern states like alabama and have begun a three—day visit to the irish republic. arkansas, and oklahoma and all of this afternoon, they laid a wreath at the garden those other areas in the south where of remembrance in dublin he believes he is strong, and will in honour of those who rose up against british rule in 1916. bernie sanders, will he get a big they were following in the footsteps call in places like california in of the queen who paid a similar tribute nine years ago. particular, will he get a big enough our royal correspondent, all to draw ahead to the point where jonny dymond reports. the proportional system means that it's very hard to capture? a lot of a short flight into a country with a u na nswered it's very hard to capture? a lot of unanswered questions we may have long history of often unhappy some answers to them later tonight. relations with britain. brexit has

does bloomberg split the moderate ruffled feathers this side of the votes, and what chance does he have irish sea. william and kate came to of going the distance?” smooth things over, starting with her coat and his tie and irish votes, and what chance does he have of going the distance? i think that's the conventional wisdom that green. a meeting with the irish perhaps there are not many people are going to vote bernie sanders president was a formality, but a friendly one. all smiles from the duke and duchess. the president and went mike bloomberg jumps out. he does put that vote, he's in odd his wife. and then to the garden of character in terms of the fact that he's a former republican mayor. he's remembrance, where the heroes of an odd character to be in this race, irish independence are commemorated. but democrats know that he spends a they bowed their heads just as the lot of money on democratic races, he spends a lot of money on democratic queen did when she visited nine yea rs queen did when she visited nine causes around the country, so for years ago. on the wreath, they laid some voters that is something that matters to them. of course even if a message. maybe neverforget the he does not carry on, even if he lessons history as we continue to does not make the breakthrough tonight that he is hoping to he has build a brighter future together. the duke and duchess stowed still promised to put his money behind during the ceremony and taken by the others in his support behind others, and that will be enormously solemnity of the moment, senior important and the reason for that is members of the royal family paying that the trump can has raised an absolute fortune for the november

tribute to the fallen of irish general election, it's going to take a lot of dosh to fight that. what is independence. those who gave their lives to fight against british rule against british monarchs. they left your sense about the key issues that the garden of remembrance, but the people are voting on? is about the personality of character up at the impression they made will linger on. a reminder of change and better about the top or what?|j personality of character up at the about the top or what? i think it depends who you ask and some people times. jonny dymond, bbc news, will talk to you very earnestly about policies, and some people will dublin. antarctica recorded its highest temperature believe that health care is very earlier this month — important to people here. it's it reached more than 20 degrees celsius. incredibly expensive to get yourself it's bad news for the extraordinary marine life that lives health insurance here if it does not in the icy waters of cope with a job for example, a lot the world's coldest continent. our chief environment correspondent, of people are concerned about justin rowlatt, recently returned quality of education and about when from antarctica where he met some newjobs are coming for all of those of the marine biologists leading issues, climate change all of those research into the impact that the changing antarctic issues, climate change all of those issues are incredibly important environment is having. particularly to democratic voters, but, and this is a truism in a antarctica is the most extreme sense, true of any election, but continent on earth. it's even more true if i can put it few animals can survive like that this time around. they the bitter cold. wa nt like that this time around. they but one antarctican environment want someone who like that this time around. they want someone who can like that this time around. they want someone who can beat donald trump. that's something they are is surprisingly stable — the ocean. incredibly focused upon, they know but it is cold, minus two celsius. that he does not fight by the normal rules of their not sure quite how to
8:24 pm
it is the coldest place on earth combat that or which candidate will that marine animals live. do that best, but that's what the water is right around they're looking for in this the freezing temperature of sea water all the time, year—round. democratic primary. and we are so the temperatures are very, very stable. it's actually very difficult getting bit by bit closer to an a nswer to to function at freezing temperature getting bit by bit closer to an answer to that. and there's going to be another fascinating few hours. of sea water because everything goes so slowly so they've optimised their metabolisms for that thanks for that. temperature and they have never seen there's a fresh warning for users anything warmer than that of smart devices like baby monitors and cameras in millions of years. to check their security settings her team is studying how these or risk being hacked. animals, sea spiders, the national cyber manage to survive and breed security centre says images or live feeds can be accessed in such cold water. by online criminals if the gadgets all right, here goes. are not properly protected. it says users should like everywhere else in the world, the antarctic regularly change passwords environment is changing. to help reduce the risk. in some places, the water is already warming. a huge challenge for animals that check for a default password and if you find one like 0000 change it to have never experienced any change. a good strong password with three random words coming something to you so, some of the incredible antarctic but not to anyone else. the second animals are in this tank. thing to do is to check that you are anne todgham is a marine biologist and you have been studying updating your security on the these animals for years. software, sometimes called firmware and if that can be done
8:25 pm
automatically if you read the instructions that will tell you and so they have antifreeze proteins inside of them that then switch it on automatically. the keep them from freezing. third thing is, and everybody uses they have different red blood cells all the features on these cameras. that are in fact not red. they have compensated for the cold lots of people may only use them when they're in the home but can be so they can go about their daily accessed from anywhere, if you are lives and actually thrive not accessing it from outside your in an environment that most animals would find very stressful. home then switch that feature off. the big question for anne is how well these extraordinary do those things and that takes away creatures will be able to adapt. so do those things and that takes away so much of the risk and you can have they have compensated for the cold so they can go about their daily peace of mind. dr stephanie hare is a researcher and an expert lives and actually thrive on technology ethics, in an environment that most animals would find very stressful. shejoins me now. the big question for anne is how thank you for coming in. which well these extraordinary creatures will be able to adapt. devices are potentially high couple the results so far here? the focus on today's story is are not promising. about security cameras that people i'm actually pretty worried. might have around their home or possibly to ward off a robber or keep an eye on the dog but he could also be at baby monitors that are i wish the data was wrong. internet and able to see you can i wish i didn't have to be worried, but there are lots of things that check on notification on your phone with your baby starts crying at work are going to change in the ocean and these animals are being and pecan and see how everything is stressed to their max. going, but really the broader you may wonder why we should worry about the fate of a few unusual principles that anything it is connected to the internet is species, but the scientists here say stackable and that's why the we should think of what is nationals on cyber security centre happening as a warning. is warning people you really need to if these animals can't survive secure not just in ourchanging world, is warning people you really need to secure notjust your is warning people you really need to i'm actually pretty worried. secure not just your wi—fi is warning people you really need to secure notjust your wi—fi router i wish the data was wrong.
8:26 pm
for instance or your laptop, or your i wish i didn't have to be worried, but there are lots of things that phone but any smart device that you might have in your home. so that are going to change in the ocean and these animals are being include something like an alexa or stressed to their max. justin rowlatt, bbc if you got a smart television. lots news, antarctica. now it's time for a look at the weather with darren bett. of talk about smart fridges and the first days of march have brought ovens and smart everything. so the first days of march have brought so much to do it's been a master of everything that is sore is basically sunshine and showers. —— mixture. tomorrow we will see a break from a surveillance tool that is potentially activated, so you need the sunshine and showers because we look out in the atlantic, this area to just really plugged up all the of cloud is looming large. it will holes and keep it as secure as bring some rain up for the southwest. no great amounts of rain, possible. the idea of baby monitors mind you. we have clearing skies as being hacked is especially unnerving, what sort of things have the showers tend to fade away and been happening? with had people that with the winds lighter, it will get cold quickly. towards the southwest, have spoken to children, for we see the cloud thickening, some insta nce have spoken to children, for instance through the device and they rain arriving so not as cold here. can also be the same for internet of further north and east, there'll be things. why would they do that? why some more widespread frost. it may bea some more widespread frost. it may be a bit colder than it was last do criminals or nefarious actress do night but a bright and sunny start anything, not a psychologist, but the point is that people do it and first thing. this cloud will move they can, the idea is you might have northward and to bringing rain up created an environment thinking you from the south weeks —— southeast of the security in your home or with their child, but in fact we eventually done is created a risk. england. some snow over the hills of wales by the end of the day, further
8:27 pm
so who can hack into it today have north in scotland some sunshine. to be in your house for example if you've got this or not? no. there's showers restricted to the northwest. showers restricted to the northwest. showers for south wales, southwest england after the rain clears away. different ways in different vectors, that rain rather patchy, it will if you will that you could use to find out if somebody has a device in head into a slowly northwards, their home is not secure. so that grinding toa head into a slowly northwards, grinding to a halt across northern you would just do over the internet and some of that could be done if england. 10—15 mm, a bit of snow you are near the property and some of it done remotely via the over the pennines. that winter internet. the big key thing is you weather easing off and threw thursday morning. there is another changing that password on a regular basis, up updating the software for it, or using something called two area for low pressure as well. factor authentication and he don't wa nt to factor authentication and he don't want to get that through your phone further north, improving picture text message, because you can actually hack somebody‘s phone or what you want to do is use something across northern england after that called an authenticator app and damn picture. showers continuing to that's an app you can download on your phone when you activate it gives you a little number that you work on into scotland. —— damp have to type income up kind of like when you do internet banking and picture. we lose one area of rain, it's only valid for a very short period of time. that's the most effective way to minimise the risk an area of low pressure during the evening. in time for friday, we got that you can do your level. totally this weather front approaching from different if you're running a the atlantic. there's no big business or a city, but your try to temperature contrast on either side, keep your own home devices secure
8:28 pm
so temperature contrast on either side, so it's a narrow band of patchy rain two factor of dedication, a your with some snow over the hills passwords, update your software. set further north. it may be that the it to be done automatically so you showers behind that are a little bit don't even have to think about it. more potent and heavier, getting wintry over the high ground. with it sounds really come pick it up but it's really important. how much of temperatures around 7—9d. the storm this is linked to 5g networks? hasn't been named but it will be that's the thing. 5g the next turning windier. more rain on the generation of tele— communication way on saturday to be replaced by technology we are starting to build in the uk is going to make it where sunshine and showers on sunday. the internet of things, which is right now kind of a promise, it's going to become a reality. it will put centres on everything and make devices that are right now down wishes means that he can't give us data, you will be able to make them smart. but every time you hear the word smart replace it with surveillance and that will really help you to understand that you are creating both opportunity and risk. you're going to introduce that opportunity into your life you're also introducing risk. do you need that for your children's toys, do you need that for your baby monitor, do you need that for a camera in your home? that's the question you have to calculate. that is
8:29 pm
fascinating. alarming, but if fascinating. alarming, but if fascinating. thank you for expending the complexity of all of that. now it's time for a look at the weather with darren bett. hello there, come another day of sunshine and showers today, but a lot of those showers already fading away and for large parts of the country it will be dry with clearing skies and light winds. into the southwest signs of change at they can cloud a rate arriving later, so not as cold hello, i'm ros atkins, this is outside source. here but ahead of that a bit of global financial institutions widespread frost and they will be a are trying to limit the economic bit colder than it was last night. impact of the coronavirus outbreak. bright and sunny start for first the us central bank has slashes thing but this cloud is moving interest rates by 0.5% — northwards and eastwards, it brings citing the ‘evolving risks' rain through the southwest of from the coronavirus. england and wales into the southeast while the world bank has just announced funding for countries of england in the northern ireland dealing with outbreaks. and a bit of snow over the well meanwhile the global death rate shields, later over the pink from the coronavirus is 3.4% — which is far higher district, sentient and a few showers than the seasonal flu. for scotland. high temperatures towards the southwest where we could the who is warning that see some showers after that rain despite these new figures, pushes through. pizza ran across hoarding masks and goggles from the england and peter on is putting medical workers at risk. thursday, threat of rain running through the english channel into the
