7:05 pm
assurances that the government would help people to weather the storm will go that is that when you put anything in them thanks to the measures already taken we can stop this virus becoming widespread our state has already been seriously affected by it if you look at our geographical position it is objective lee not possible to stop it but we can do its work in a professional way our main priority is to help the lives of our citizens with medical assistance and preventative measures well let's hear now from step vasant who is in moscow and has more on putin's speech. he actually barely spoke about the any health measures during his said his nation the white address which was actually the 1st time he has addressed the whole nation during this corona crisis because the authorities until now were always saying that they were doing a much better job at the containing the fire risk and also that they were less much less cases than anywhere else but in the last 24 hours we see a spike in official cases and that's only the tip of the iceberg as many virally
7:06 pm
just and other experts have been telling us so finally and also obviously reluctantly put in it's now addressing the nation telling them to stay at home for one week it's just one week he has also not specified how these measures will be observed or enforced it's not clear if the very wide ranging face recognition system that's in place here in moscow will be used for this and he also spoke about politics about this constitutional fota body amendments that will keep him in power for much longer after his final term will end in 2024 he has now said that he will postpone this vote indefinitely and then most of the time he was talking about any social economic measures that will keep the population happy because he's very worried that there will be panic and of course people have been struggling here it canonically their incomes have been going down in recent years so extensively
7:07 pm
offered all kinds of measures to make sure that people can go about their normal lives and have an income. all right to the united states now where the u.s. senate is set to vote on a deal for a 2 trillion dollars package to help fight the virus the funds are aimed at keeping the world's biggest economy afloat and helping frontline medical workers the agreement follows days of arguments with democrats accusing republicans of prioritizing profits over workers' health and that speech while white house correspondent can be how could he's in washington d.c. and the details of this plan. yeah we are expecting the vote on this plan to come down in the u.s. senate shortly it is a pretty expansive package one of the largest essentially in u.s. history if what the details are is this essentially is providing a $500000000000.00 pool of emergency liquidity for the u.s.
7:08 pm
economy with it american corporations are going to see large sums of money that there will be some strings attached in terms of the oversight how they spend that because this is a sensitive issue for many hardworking americans as well the u.s. airlines are going to see receive direct ground there are going to be payroll tax cuts that employers can push on to their employees interestingly nick the president himself who have course as many large businesses that in the united states and around the world he's not going to personally benefit from this legislation that is something that lawmakers made sure of this is supposed to help the small businesses the ordinary american workers but we should point out when it comes to those checks that will be mailed to individual homes a family of 4 could see about $3000.00 in cash payments it's only for households that make us 70000 and under the health care system is also going to see a c3xbc5xb for state and local governments again this is a big package
7:09 pm
a little bit of everything in there 1st everywhere in the united states because right now we see the business this essentially sat down except for those that are considered essential so this is going to be passed in the u.s. senate but it still has been passed in the house of representatives that could get a bit more tricky because it's not even in session right now and those 2 things have to happen both chambers before it gets signed into law by the u.s. president right kimberly donald trump is been talking about the united states shake you know the impacts of coronavirus by easter also i mean parts of it and he would be saying that this deal will help the process of getting the country back to work . yeah that's a pretty controversial position the president has taken the and some say overly optimistic as well he's talking about trying to get the economy essentially back into where it was by easter and that is really the middle of april it's not much time considering the numbers of crossfire cases in the united states only continuing to climb we've been told this is going to be one of the worst weeks yet
7:10 pm
it seems a bit ambitious still the president points out that there are some counties in the united states where there isn't a single coronavirus case and he'd like to see those counties being able to get back to work so this is something that the president is pushing we expect to hear more about it as he briefs with his coronavirus task force that will be taking place at $21.00 g.m.t. and we also now know now the president tomorrow thursday is going to be holding a video conference with g 20 leaders this will be to coordinate the international response to this pandemic that according to the white house deputy press secretary hogan gidley in just the last hour so a lot of developments a lot of effort but again not everything the president is doing is being well received particularly when it comes to talking about getting americans back to work before the sort of peak of this virus has yet to hit in the united states kimberly accent thanks very much to relocate the. new york 10 times more cases than
7:11 pm
any other states in the united states and has reduced to 285 deaths from the virus the governor of the country cuomo says dealing with the pandemic has proven expensive and he's appealing for a bigger cuts in the proposed stimulus package response to this virus has probably already cost us $1000000000.00 it will probably cost us several $1000000000.00 when we're done new york city only gets $1300000000.00 from this package. that is a drop in the bucket as to need i spoke to our house delegation congressional delegation this morning i said to them just doesn't do it. kind of is parliament has passed a $57000000000.00 stimulus package to counter the economic fallout of the pandemic and that's after a 1000000 canadians filed jobless claims in a week the prime minister justin trudeau spoke about the plant outside his residence where he's in self isolation this is an unprecedented situation with an
7:12 pm
overwhelming amount of demand by canadians to get money as quickly as possible we need to make sure we're getting that money out quickly but also reliably to canadians and that means doing things that government hasn't done before and scaling up our processes extremely quickly to india where people are being punished for going out so after they were ordered to stay at home for nearly 3 weeks to fight the spread of the virus across the country police have been stopping people out on the streets some are locked down violators of being physically punished all public transport has been suspended but grocery stores and pharmacies they remain open people are also allowed to go out for central work during the lockdown elizabeth per annum says the lockdown is driving panic by among the middle class leaving the poor indians without. most of the country is quiet today that after
7:13 pm
the scenes we saw the prime minister modi announce the lockdown when lots of people around the country were rushing to grocery stores panic buying and you know even though prime minister modi said that people would still be allowed to go out to get essential supplies and we had delhi's chief minister had hold a press conference a few hours ago saying that it's the government's responsibility to provide for people and that by crowd in places people are defeating the point of a lockdown asking people not to do that and some things are quieter today but it's so important to remember that you know panic buying and hoarding it's a very middle class thing and there are so many people in india who aren't middle class and in fact the places that we are seeing crowds today the homeless shelters that can no longer you know we've been hearing from homeless shelters that say they only have about 2 days' worth of supplies left and that's because they're not just
7:14 pm
looking after the homeless now but by the very leonie and india who are daily wage earners who live a hand to mouth existence and because they can no longer work i mean they can no longer look after themselves. i still had her announces they are ignoring the warnings why the coronavirus message is not getting to many in africa's most populous nation. and lost childhoods will have more in the devastating impact that yemen's war has had on the younger generation. and i was about to be a bit of a chill wind blowing through northern child temperature in beijing will drop by 10 degrees as this thing's a cold front comes out of the interior the clouds the south of that is various lumps of sun the storms and rain significant in china being squeezed across to
