5:18 am
a strict lockdown remains in place emergency measures are being rolled out to help small businesses but many are skeptical that the support will be enough to keep them afloat the reports. before the lockdown in france abdul know as is worked on 3 building sites in the paris region an electrician with his own business he was in demand but since the french government ordered people to stay home to stem the spread of the coronavirus he's had to stop work now he's worried about the future. the longer it takes to return to work the harder it will be because we'll need to restart the building sites the work the materials will the suppliers be available will they have the material needed in construction you're not paid for 60 days so even if we started again in may we not be paid until july and we have bills to pay abdul knows wife's the lima is also concerned she's had to close her fashion shop in central paris and says even before the lockdown her clients began to. away all
5:19 am
of us have come up at. the coronavirus has had a huge impact on the shop my clients were very scared and didn't come so far in complimented our regular clients disappeared and the tourists so economically it's a huge impact and i'm scared of the future on the city's near empty roads some taxi drivers continue to work but passengers are rare. in a 10 hour shift i've only had 5 passengers it covers my costs but i'm earning nearly nothing at all in fact i'm losing money but what's going to do as people stay home across france shopping streets are quiet and businesses closed people have lost trade jobs income and certainty about their future the french government says that because of the coronavirus crisis the country faces a recession but it will try and support businesses and companies with a range of measures including interest free loans and special bonuses for of course
5:20 am
for the 1st time since the period after the 2nd world war we have launched a system of temporary unemployment benefit to avoid mass job losses like most people in france or lima is getting used to confinement but as the weeks pass she wonders when it will end and whether the financial support being offered by the government will be enough to revive a business she's devoted herself to for namely 2 decades natasha butler al-jazeera france u.s. president donald trump has repeatedly made false claims about the coronavirus pandemic let's remind you of some of his comments with which generated such huge controversy. bill that's the same as the flu when somebody sneezes i mean i try and bail out as much as possible with this almost everybody that we see is getting better at it could be everybody. the democrats are politicizing
5:21 am
the coronavirus you know sort of. a lost it's all turning think of it think of it and this is the new hoax but anybody that needs a test in. there will say they have a mouth in addition to that they're making millions and more as we speak but as of right now and yesterday anybody did need to test it's important. thomas pro is an analyst he's the author of the article coronavirus why you must act now that sounded the alarm on the growth rate in the u.s. he joins us now via skype from san francisco could have you with us thomas you saw this coming what did you see as far as the u.s. is concerned what did you see in the days that the president and the people advisor him obviously didn't i'm not the only one a lot of people saw he is but is just expansion growth people are not used to growth rates of anything growing at 1020 percent today over day. and
5:22 am
this is what's happening here if you have 101520 cases and you don't know where they're coming from in your non-controlling it is just a matter of time before thousands or millions of people are affected ok so where does the u.s. go from here new york city or new york state obviously the epicenter of the disease in the united states where does it go next can the country keep a lid on this. i think the key there is that there is not one country here this really 50 countries the way to manage because of the federal level not all the management have it has been centralized the way. the management hasn't been centralized in nearly every other country here it's basically the states the leading these and as a result it really depends on the states california washington states need a really good job really early on they can't they can't outbreaks alaska for example is an amazing state that really 2 strong measures early on but then you
5:23 am
have other states like florida. to go along or a time before they do what they need to do and even now they don't have the measures they need to know to take and so you can see brewing in different states prices that are going to be worse than what they did speak is it possible to mortal . that the trajectory of the the pandemic across the united states governor cuomo was saying that that it should be possible to work out where the disease is going next it's always like a game of whack a mole so that you can make sure that you've got the resources in place to deal with it as marius. as the disease grows more prevalent in certain areas of the country. i think here that precision is the enemy of insight there's plenty of models none of them are perfect but when you know ease if you have an outbreak and you're not controlling it is going to explode and one of the things for example
5:24 am
that is true in the us is that we have very little testing if you don't have enough testing how do you know where the cases are if you don't know where the cases are how can you control them that's for the testing but the same thing for contractor is one of the things that east asian countries do really well is they keep they test a lot they know where the cases are and they know where the potential cases are because they're tracking all the contacts that an infected person had were not doing any of that in the u.s. letting the states handle this and many of them are not equipped to do it well we heard donald trump a few moments ago the president making some. pretty wild claims about the coronavirus what what data what science do you think finally led him to him and his administration to set up a. this now and then to accelerate its response to this. i think is more i don't know i can only speculate i think it is very human want to.
5:25 am
take these less seriously than you should for the same reason i mentioned before because this is an exponential growth and people don't understand intuitively the same way as easily took these. took too long to address said spain took too long and the u.s. too long and even within the u.s. you have an urban rural divide urban area just some friends use for new york where the 1st hits and the hardest it's usually urban areas are more democratic and saw the republican leadership was likely less. affected by these because their areas were less affected by this so it makes sense that the republican leadership might have taken longer to realize that is really good to talk to so many thanks dave thomas pro there are skype from san francisco. in other news at least 19 people have been killed in a suspected gang fights in mexico in the northern town of and security forces later found more than
