5:02 pm
agreed with the sun a tree and love to do logical thought is the most difficult absolutely clear the criteria is not the protection of the health and the safety of the tip of russia but you might looking at this situation we look at the additional discussions you need to do with correct. the measures if there were to be made. sure. part of what. i want to emphasize to the implemented measures in the fight against. the big 3 we. can keep jobs and the income she persisted the campaign is that a common priority for the government for the regions you keep. actually a commission that they believe in all of me. is just a deficiency which is a key objective simply didn't for help. the president of russia.
5:03 pm
but you know when you might. be very careful in the recommendations and requirements of the base he's a cat. and your marriage and shares. this time thing we have a common responsibility for mutual because maybe in. this short time this week has shown that we understand the situation. we are in convention that. we act i disagree in the way people bring about hope and to overcome my i thank you for your attention we. well you've been listening to a prerecorded speech to the nation from the russian president that i'm a person that was broadcast on state television he was addressing the country from
5:04 pm
his own self isolation he's now extended a so-called non-working week for the rest of april april 30th well that's now cross tolerantly he is live in london for us going to we have seen quite a remarkable shift in the government's approach to this pandemic over the last week or. yes they're taking it very seriously now there have been some concern in certain about amir putin's own health because he shook hands a few days ago with the leader of russia's main corona rivera's fighting hospital and that man then tested positive and people wonder whether putin the pictures of himself from the handshake but he didn't seem. even though he's off in self isolation in his residence outside moscow didn't seem to be suffering any ill health but yes you're absolutely true he had already last week issued a decree forcing the vast majority of russia's 140000000 people to stay at
5:05 pm
home people who were working were told not to work and that the state was going to pay the salaries for the time being moscow has been shut down entirely and you heard him there in that speech now say that they're going to extend that force nonwork for virtually all of russia until the end of april which is clearly you know of just just just under a month away and that's how they think they're going to get over it we haven't had a least if you have a set the figures at face value in russia not very many deaths putin has said that the lock down is working. but they did but clearly he's not taking it very seriously even if it's going to cost the state a lot of money to pay people not to work. lawrence and this is all coming as west seeing some seriously escalating numbers record numbers after some initial speculation that they were being distinctly underreported.
5:06 pm
yeah and the other problem that russia's got is to do with a lot of other countries the amounts of people the quick break whitman's as well protective equipment you'll remember the russia lifted a lot to the united states the other day and had already done so to italy has been quite a lot of anger in the medical community in russia in parts of i mean outside moscow is as you probably know russia's extremely for. lots of places state television there has been explained people have to sew their own face most and why then based on that adopts a saying why are you giving of the equipment away to the americans if it's not just for propaganda purposes so there's all that source of concern as well the other thing though that i think you might see that play into this this round between russia and saudi arabia over the price of oil which led to a massive slump in the process of crude because there was the suggestion starting to come about that might now be started to be resolved and if that does lift the
5:07 pm
price of crude it would actually be quite a good thing for russia at the moment because obviously it's so reliant on gas for is entirely connelly any more money coming in from that would be very helpful in terms of paying people not to go to work and are insulated there speaking to us from london thank you very much for that lawrence well the united states is once again today announcing skyrocketing rates of unemployment a record 6600000 people have now applied for unemployment benefits that's 3000000 more than last week candy how can that now joins us live from washington d.c. kimberly this 6650000 filing for benefits i mean that's huge but not entirely unexpected. not entirely unexpected and do the math with me if you remember last week we're talking about 3300000 so in the span of 2 weeks we have more than 10000000 americans filing for claims and we
5:08 pm
should point out these are just the people that were able to either leave their homes to get to one of these offices or that they were able to call in or do it online but what we're hearing is that this has been a system under strain many people were able to get through to file their claims so the numbers could actually be far higher so what we've got in the united states is we went from historically low unemployment to now these new record highs and what we're hearing is that taking across all sectors of society particularly the low wage inner earners who are now counting on those stimulus checks from the government that have not yet arrived but also acknowledging that that may not be enough because you have to remember. many of these sectors are not coming back many people don't want to take a cruise anymore they don't want to get on an airplane they don't want to stay in a hotel so many of these jobs have disappeared and we're facing
5:09 pm
a new economy when ever this recovery starts already we're hearing from the trumpet ministration the idea of pushing congress to put in place legislation more legislation called recovery to bring and rebuild infrastructure in order to get the workforce back in the jobs that they're hoping for but it may not look like the jobs they were in previously did they may not kimberly house for us in washington d.c. thank you candy. now the united kingdom has reported a new record jump in its daily deaths $569.00 more people have died taking the total that nearly $3000.00 more than $33000.00 people are now infected and that includes prime minister johnson who's been in isolation since friday he's vowing to massively increase testing as his administration comes under increasing criticism for not doing enough. we're also massively increasing testing and i want to say a special word about testing because it is so important and i as i've said for for
5:10 pm
weeks and weeks this is the way through this is how we will unlock the coronavirus puzzle this is how we will defeat it in the end and what we need to do is massively ramp up not just tests so that you can know whether you've had the disease in the past the 2nd antibody test because that will enable you to go to work in the confidence that you can't be infected or infectious and the promise of more testing has failed to come from kline medical weapons across the u.k. more than 2000 of them and now infected easily frustrated. we should be the 1st. so that we can look up issues. i'm very sad i feel like right now. that you said what conclusion. do people going to tell you i'll say you know yes this is going overboard this is going to go on this is going to go look at germany . please. well let's now go to china hala who's in london for us china the
5:11 pm
anguish in that man's voice. over the lack of testing facilities and us standing in a repurposed. to tell us a little more about what's happening where you are. yes testing is a huge issue here the government has been well behind the curve since the start of this crisis and continues to be it has been frankly unable to sufficiently explain the discrepancy between a country like the u.k. trying to ramp up to 10000 tests a day and germany for instance which is doing 70000 tests today and also unable to explain why front line health care staff haven't been able to get the tests they need those exhibiting symptoms of the disease who are now self isolating at home who simply don't know whether they got it or not and if they did know would be able to get back to work much quicker where they are absolutely urgently needed but this is part of the solution it's a drive through testing site one of 5 this one is in the car park as you say of an
5:12 pm
ikea shopping center aiming to test a 1000 health care workers a day they're not doing that at the moment so you can see it exactly as a car trying to get in a brisk trade at the moment they need an email from public health england inviting them to come to this test center in order to get tested if they haven't got an e-mail to come get in we spoke to a friend a medic who was turned away short while ago he desperately needs to test his self isolating and he doesn't know where to get it he asked us where to get the e-mail from so there may be some glitches in the system but they'll be working through those aiming to get up to a 1000 a day making that part of the 10000 a day countrywide a need to get up to 25000 a day by the end of april and hundreds of thousands in a matter of weeks but this epidemic is fast approaching its peak here in the u.k. perhaps within the next 2 weeks. they don't seem to be getting up to speed quickly enough jane hall there for us in london thank you very much jana. well spain has just reported

5:21 pm
police but i'm joined now by doctors to rica she started an online petition demanding an end to attacks against doctors who are treating coronavirus cases and she is joining me now on skype from new delhi dr emma thank you so much for taking the time to be with us i mean in on the company. front line health in i'm sorry to interrupt but i just want to say i mean people like you and other countries are being applauded in parts of india they're being spat at as we were just being pelted with stones and i'm really struggling to understand what's actually driving all of this. so the thing is i'm the surgeon i'm boost in google on daily and. looking good the local word 19 patients under extremely trying circumstances but i have had to start up but they should with changed or do you slash stop attacks on doctors because unfortunately all over the world we have people tanking doc goes
5:22 pm
for being there on the frontline but in india people have a dead a bill. habit of hitting doc goes every time somebody in their family dies and as you can see like you were saying the numbers that i've seen across the world there are more than 44000 deaths because of poor with 19 and in india we've had 3 episodes where every time a patient all scored 19 died in the in the i.c.u. on the way into late though they were physically assaulted by their relatives and it's a very very difficult time for those in india because one we are working against a dangerous disease putting ourselves at risk and day and 2nd we have to always be in fear that somebody is going to get those every time a patient that is and for a disease that does this i hate it of mortality it's going to become very challenging for all of us to work of course asking the prime minister to make it a non-bailable offense that anybody who wants doctors really be arrested and not given bail so that doc those health workers can work can be well again
5:23 pm
a way to train them for things you say that doctors are being attacked in the event of a death but i mean in the video that we've just been seeing these were doctors who are just trying to test patients what's driving the violence as it will this community health workers and and what's driving that whole that whole amount of violence targeting them. so that what i think i mean i'm not exactly sure what to write they would hit so badly and assaulted and such a mass killed but the main fear is that if anybody comes positive they will be taken into isolation and i think patients out afraid that they will be taken away from their homes and their families that probably could we are driving force but in another that episodes in head robot and indoor doctors will be eaten up in the hospital when they had to declare the patient they'd see there have also been reports that landlords are evicting health workers from their homes how widespread is that. that's extremely it was very disturbing it happened in delhi and in
5:24 pm
a couple of other cities the those who are working in the institute like him send the odd broke a hospital they were suddenly asked to or cared by their landlords and they were physically threatened and they were directly it didn't put their belongings were put on the lord and it was extremely disturbing until the administration had to get involved and they dream and at least have stopped when you say you're calling on the government to to try to support you in more strong way and i have the it did a bit bishan asking the prime minister more the clear to that but they should not change. it's got to stop attacks on doctors so that the prime minister shouldn't 3 and ask the police to give maximum protection and there should be 0 at all of them for why lives against doctors and health or good so that we can work in peace and without the fear of us saw it every time we are having to get a patient did talk to syria. and medical doctor in india speaking to us from new delhi thank you so much for joining us on al-jazeera and we wish you all the best
5:25 pm
