8:11 am
situation made all the more harrowing when the army had to disinfect their resting place as the army during certain visits found older people completely abandoned sometimes even dead in their bats spanish health care services fighting against collapse this is a significant problem for our healthcare system this collapse which is being talked about could happen in some places germany seems to have the spread of covert 19 under some semblance of control a quick glance to our neighbors elsewhere in europe like spain shows just how quickly the situation can degenerate and with such tragic consequences peter all of our artsy belin. the u.k. has seen a dramatic spike in cove in 1900 tell these over the past week or than a 1000 have died more than 4 times the number at this time last week the british prime minister has written

8:14 am
a deliberate ignoring or whether it's. the advice at the time just wasn't clear enough people and i think unless you you've had something directly impact on you and last member of your family has been impacted or unless you specifically into isolation and i think i don't think that the seriousness of the situation you know we're very reliant on on people coming to the area for the local economy. i think it just hasn't people is my hope that it just happened people and they just didn't stand in the gravity of the situation unfortunately that was an element of their digital until years and it was very pleased to see the mayor of the town of course call come on to the airwaves to put

economic fallout of the pandemic the costs are expected to exceed anything known in germany from economic crisis to natural disasters in recent decades as knock downs are implemented with no clear end in sight the real question perhaps is now how long can the world afford this this pandemic has brought the 3rd and most serious economic financial and social crisis of the 21st century the strict measures applied around the world although essential to control the spread of the virus plunge our economies into an unprecedented paralysis from which they will not come out easily or automatically already we know that some $67000000.00 us citizens are worried about how they going to pay their credit card bills because of the pandemic other fears about finding money for the more essential basic needs of life accommodation and food while the multi-trillion for now will keep things
