7:07 am
institute of technology says a speculation is part of a familiar pattern we played this game before with him and with previous leaders where we've said oh he's disappeared for 2 weeks he's disappeared for 3 weeks you know it does that mean he might die similarly with the supreme leader in iran there been numerous rumors about imminent demise that never came true you know it's a pandemic right in north korea where does north korea live right next to that country where the coronavirus originated now north korea's did not it has any cases i find it hard to believe i'm not saying he would. have contracted it obviously boris johnson did so you know do we have a smoking gun here that something is a right no because of the focus on covering 1000 which is totally appropriate and all the things that means we haven't been thinking about north korea but it north

korea if the leader darrius in a context in which there's a global pandemic it's under sanctions and entering a recession is joining an economy declines that's a big deal and we might want to think about it before it happens rather than after it happens. catholics in south korea are attending mass for the 1st time since longtime measures were introduced at the start of the coronavirus pandemic let's go straight to rob mcbride in seoul for a so another sign of life returning to normal in south korea. i think people here in south korea do regard this as yet another hopeful optimistic indication it's been now nearly 2 months since the catholic church and other churches here decided it was simply too risky to hold services instead having masses held on line and it's only now many weeks on
7:09 am
a south korea seems to think that the worst is behind it that the numbers are controlled that. organizations like the catholic church feel it is safe enough to hold masses on a sunday once more which is what they do and we are here at the main cathedral in seoul one mass is just come to an end and people are turning up for the next mass this cathedral can hold a congregation of up to a 1000 but only around a quarter of that number of being allowed in for each mass and in order to be part of that 260 people you have to turn up here early you go to a line or to another building where you are given a number and also your details are taken your identity or contact details which mast you are attending so if there is a case of an infection then very quickly your thoughts he's here can trace everybody who is at that mass it's all part of this contact tracing that the south koreans seem to be so expert at now you then line up at another line to get into the cathedral with the usual precautions of hand sanitizer making sure you're wearing
7:10 am
a mask and then also in place are special precautions for taking communion for example so to reduce as much as possible any risk of infection is a lot for catholics here and in other cities throughout south korea to have to go through but people we've been talking to are just grateful that they can get back into their churches once more but of course there is concern wrong that they could be a 2nd wave of infections what sort of precautions are being taken to avoid this. yeah the south koreans are still urging people to have social distancing to keeping in place those precautions the fear is of course. certain fatigue could set in or complacency i mean south korea as we know has not. to have mandatory lock downs it is urged public cooperation as much as possible voluntary cooperation which they have largely had but there is a concern that you know as we get into the summer months so we know that people
7:11 am
can't travel from here outside to go on vacation but we do have for example next week number of public holidays coming up and we know from bookings that resorts around south korea will be busy that people are getting back on planes again to go from one part of south korea to another the concern here is that as people do that as people to come to congregations like this one that they do so safely thank you very much for that rob mcbride in my forests. 200000 people have not died from the coral and a virus and the world health organization has warned that people who recover from the disease may not be immune to reinfection is says there is no evidence people who developed untie bodies were protected from getting it a 2nd time without that guarantee the agency says bans by some governments to go out so-called immunity fast force could be risky or the u.s. state of new york has begun untied body tests for frontline health care workers the
7:12 am
screening program will examine whether doctors and nurses working with infected patients have been contracting call that 19 without showing any symptoms. reports every hamburger and an anesthesiologist and saying this new york anesthesiologist recovered from covert 19 a month ago now doctors evi hamburger is among an important group of frontline medical workers who hope they're immune from reinfection so here in europe the answer to meeting on the list was the blood plasma he's donating is also being studied to treat patients so if you give these this plasma to someone who is acutely infected with correct aquarius being in the bodies that are in the possible for me you can hope we start attacking the virus health care workers are a significant portion of confirmed coded 19 infections in the u.s. the federal government reports more than 9000 doctors and nurses are among those
7:13 am
who tested positive and the number is likely an underestimate given occupation information was missing from 80 percent of those tracked cases they are folks that you know by by just follow they take time to rest they know that when they go into health care right so they don't run away from the fire they go to the rest of her think this is actually bringing in one of our ventilators dr hamburger is now a member of his hospital's covert rapid response team performing into beijing's on . critically ill patients this is the procedure that is one of the scarier procedures in the corona virus era because this is when the virus can be eris soloist he's volunteered to spare coworkers who've not been infected but the w.h.o. says reinfection cannot be ruled out through anti-body tests alone the question of potentially munity needs more study. meanwhile in maryland a parade of police cars have come to say thank you to hospital workers soon it will

7:22 am
responsibility for another terrorist attack the laundry list. that the taliban's community had wanted for many years at the time they were sure and says the measures would be temporary but they've been routinely reauthorized by congress yet mass surveillance proved ineffective counterproductive and the data was being used for purposes unrelated to terrorism it was only 12 years after the patriot act passed with the whistleblowing of edward snowden that we discovered the extent of the mass surveillance and only then was the government's bulk collection of information about americans limited now with the spread of covert 19 snowden and others so there's an opportunity to learn from the past systems to monitor everyone's location at all times of being formalized in secret at the point these policies are being sought these benefits are theoretical often there is no evidence for them and they may never materialize that capability will exist in 3 months in 3
