5:01 am
with overwhelming debt in argentina now the pandemic is making the economic situation even once. and a milestone for iran but a cause for concern from the u.s. as the country launches its 1st military satellites into orbit. now u.s. president donald trump has dismissed the possibility of a severe 2nd wave of corona virus infections in the year that during his daily briefing he asked the director of the u.s. centers for disease control and prevention to clarify his earlier remarks that another bout of infections during the flu season could be even worse than what's being witnessed now around $840000.00 people have been infected in the u.s. and nearly $50000.00 have died those are the highest numbers anywhere in the wild. well you know. we were not because we could have some leverage
5:02 am
a groan and you could have a big blue system and if they combined your thing come together they come together it's not great but we will not go through what we went through for the last 2 months getting a president is accuracy. understand that the united states will serve the people appear to them but how can you say that you know it won't come back in the same level that it has today what it is estimated might not come back at all to have it may not come back at all he should get about a worst case scenario where you have a big flu and you have some corona and if it does come back it's not going to come back and i've spoken to 10 different people not going to be like it was well there's also division on reopening economy some states want to move faster than others georgia is among the most drastic planning to reopen most businesses by monday dr anthony fauci was a member of the president's coronavirus task force is recommending a more cautious approach well you know if i were advising the governor i would tell
5:03 am
him that he should be careful and i would advise him not to just turn the switch on and go because there is a danger of a rebound and i know there is the desire to move ahead quickly that's a natural human nature desire but going ahead in leap frogging into phases where you should not be i would advise him as a health official and as a physician not to do that and donald trump has now also officially signed an executive order suspending immigration a 60 days he says it will protect americans who've lost their jobs in the pandemic well more now from mike hanna on president tom again contradicting his top health officials. what was essentially a rather uncomfortable moment when president trump introduced the director of the centers for disease control having described the report in the local newspaper as
5:04 am
fake news being described as misquoting at the director well the director got up and made a very clear that he had not been misquoted in the body of the initial report he did have some argument about the headline itself but it's yet another example of president trump countering his scientists now not only the director of the c.d.c. but also dr anthony fauci the chief medical adviser to the white house saying that he's absolutely convinced that the coronavirus will come back in the poll and that is his position president trump as you heard there saying it may not come back at all while some u.s. states mostly in the south have begun reopening their economies despite warnings from health experts and more and more governors are preparing to roll out plans to ease restrictions in the coming days california has laid out a road map a road map outlining steps that need to be taken before it's 40000000 people can
5:05 am
return to walk from reynolds reports from los angeles. new findings indicate coronavirus was circulating in california weeks earlier than previously thought autopsies on 2 people who died in northern california on february 6th and february 17th showed they were victims of coal that 19 previously the earliest known fatalities was on february 29th in washington state. the findings may mean that dozens of times more people nationwide have been exposed and have died than has been officially reported california was the 1st to issue a statewide stay at home order on wednesday governor gavin new. some outlined his approach to gradually and cautiously lifting restrictions but there is no light switch and there is no date in terms of our capacity to provide the kind of clarity that i know so many of you demand and deserve newsome said as
5:06 am
a 1st step scheduled surgeries for non-code 19 conditions may resume tumors heart valves the need for people to get the kind of care that they deserve it if it's delayed it becomes ultimately denied it gets delayed becomes acute newsome said further relaxing of restrictions would depend on data based on increased testing and contact tracing we want to focus on science and health as a predicate for all our decision making california's cautious and gradual approach contrasts sharply with decisions by republican governors in southern states like georgia and florida to reopen beaches gyms beauty salons and tattoo parlors among other businesses public health officials have strongly warned against a premature reopening of businesses and public gatherings thing that would almost
5:07 am
certainly lead to a new surge in covert 19 infections and deaths rob reynolds al-jazeera los angeles that's now speak to marcus class and he joins us from silas and north carolina he is the chief medical officer of the association of state and territorial health officials that's a group that represents public health agencies and all 50 us states marcus thank you for joining us at such a busy time and i would like to start with timing most if not all medical experts are saying that we're going to see waves of infection for as long as we don't have a vaccine optimistically that's potentially at least a year away so how do you reconcile that with easing lockdowns knowing that subsequent waves of infection are likely. well. the big the big challenge for everybody right now is this issue of needing to begin to reopen society need to begin to let our economy go back to work and that's
5:08 am
a very challenging situation to be in there are there is a way forward we believe in public health there is now very good guidance the white house together with centers for disease control put out guidance for states and communities to help them decide when the time is right for them to be able to open and the kind of things they need to do to be able to reopen their economies and their societies successfully and really reduce the chances that they'll be a rebound infections the national governors association is about to come out with this very similar document so there's some very good information in a guy who's now states and our suggestion is that they really look at that guidance and use that to help them making these difficult decisions let me ask you more about that criteria marcus because the administration's plan i believe it's called opening up america again that includes same day diagnostic testing for all patients with symptoms as well as strong contact tracing and these are these are the 2 main criteria i believe and testing has been
5:09 am
a huge issue from the beginning what's the capacity like now for both those interventions and do you think it's enough to start reopening it enough to warrant that. well testing has been a big challenge and it does seem like we're starting to have the manufacturing capacity put the tests in place we continue to have some problems with the real radiance for the tests but hopes that will work itself out in the hope is that within a few weeks certainly by the summer or in a position where we really states could have big data to monitor what's going on with their cases and to know that the the infection rates are trending in a downward direction that's the time that say to start thinking about reopening that's the time that you can very carefully monitor your cases and also other surveillance systems that we have so you can see states can closely watch what's going on it may be in some situations the states where you open start to normalize and then they'll have an uptick in cases and the apps cayle back that's what we're
5:10 am
expecting we're calling it a pump the brakes type approach and everybody needs repair but the fact that this is going to be tough going for a while so well surveillance also requires coordination rights and we've seen plenty of tension between the white house and state governors particularly democratic ones and also tension to between the various states as they will try to get hold of all the resources they need you or someone who deals with coordination what's the state of the relationship between municipal state and federal levels of government when it comes to pandemic response well the relationship those 3 levels municipal state and federal i think is very strong states state public kill. state public apartments for the most tore apart their guidance from the centers for disease control says disease control is you know one of the authors of the recent guidance on how to reopen the centers for disease control provides a lot of information we have about surveillance states trust the centers for disease control i think that relationship is strong those pieces can stay together
5:11 am
we have a good place to begin to move forward marcus pressure there the chief medical officer of the association of state and territorial health officials thank you so much sir for your time on al-jazeera today thank you for having me on meanwhile the world health organization has warned that in some parts of the wild outbreaks are only just beginning the w.h.o. chief said there are worrying trends in countries which have more vulnerable most of the epitome exceed western europe appears to be stable or declining although numbers are low we see warning upward trend in africa central and south america and eastern europe most countries are still in the early stages of their epidemic's and that we are afflicted early in the pundit gotta know starting to see a resurgence in cases make no mistake we have

a necessity for such powerful defense forces like the revolutionary guard to have access to advanced capabilities today the powerful armies of the world have no comprehensive defense plan if they don't have a place in space for today we can monitor the world from space and it means boosting strategic data for the i.r.g.c. putting the satellite into orbit gives us a technological advantage and it's also a powerful asset in the intelligence war in iran has put satellites in space before but the success of the noor comes after several failures in recent years it's expected to be used for intelligence gathering secure military communications navigation and reconnaissance whatever leaders need to support from the sky iran's military assets on earth and the satellite isn't the days only technological development. the difference between this satellite and previous ones is that it's propulsion the uses a combined solid and liquid fuel only
