5:18 am
ecuador no one can really say how many people have died from cold in 1000 only that people are dying faster than they can be properly tested in identified a nurse who doesn't want to be named says that in his hospital in by a key he said to pile of bodies in the bathrooms because there's no more room elsewhere. that's very traumatic for us imagine i have nightmares i'm not very well psychologically we can't do more for a critical question than get them sailing solution when what they need is a pencil. in brazil it's a similar case this is the no senora up but i see that symmetry in my now says the gateway to the brazilian amazon even some of the grave diggers have died after contracting the virus in the desperate race to bury victims. luigi pollard just lost his mother in law who he says could not access emergency care to him. a person

5:20 am
internationally recognized government in yemen is calling it a coup after the southern transitional council announced it was in control of the port city of aden. the council accuses the government of being unable to cope with the coronavirus pandemic and failing to improve the lives of yemenis. so far there has been only one confirmed covert 19 infection in the southern region of how they are marked this is actually a pileup of. mis management and misgovernance in especially in south yemen well that's why the f.c.c. is right now compelled to say to take action into their own hands while still calling for a cease fire calling for deescalation in all fronts we want things to go smoothly or what they want to be able to deliver aid services going to be able to battle this and them but the government warns the breakaway attempt could have
5:21 am
catastrophic consequences describing it as a resumption of an armed insurgency. it's yet another complicating factor in yemen's 5 year civil war which has been marked by shifting sometimes shadowy allegiances. the southern separatists are backed by the united arab emirates and have been nominal allies of the saudi emirate to coalition in their war against the who sees. the the government says the separatist action is a rejection of a power sharing deal brokered to end last year's unrest which saudi arabia hailed as a step towards a wider political solution to the war there are thought to be at least 25 regional separatist groups support on the ground is also in question critics say control should be taken by force but actions within yemen and you will not and will be but for the. regions or earlier and i think this is like premature
5:22 am
decision that doesn't. support in other areas of yemen it's basically. in other places so basically we are playing with fire at the moment and not. going back to. the southern transitional council says it continues to support the unilateral cease fire the cleric by saudi arabia 2 and a half weeks ago it has been just extended by month but its declaration of autonomy and state of emergency adds to the uncertainty for yemenis who've already suffered years of hunger and war. dorsett jabari al jazeera. meanwhile an island off yemen's coast is among a number of southern provinces that have rejected the s.t.c. self governance the government and so katra has instead pledged allegiance to president months or hadi but his source inside the internationally recognized government has told al jazeera the u.a.e.
5:23 am
is bribing army officers to carry out a coup against the local authority the u.a.e. deployed its troops to the quarter 2 years ago and their presence on the island has fueled protests in the past. now israel supreme court says the government must pos legislation within weeks to continue with a controversial surveillance program which tracks a person's location by their mobile phone prime minister benjamin netanyahu gave security agencies the power to track them about data of anyone suspected of having the coronavirus the supremes court says the measure is a breach of people's privacy meanwhile in a straight more than a 1000000 people have chosen to download a mobile phone tracing out there it was launched on sunday the software uses bluetooth technology to connect with other phones so users can be traced and contacted if they're exposed to covert 19 well for more on this let's speak to david vaile he's a cyber experts at the university of new south wales and he joins us on skype from
5:24 am
sydney david the government says that 1000000 people signed up for this in the 1st 4 and a whole 4 hours of the launch despite privacy concerns so does this mean the public is on board. well both put a lot of effort into marketing and promotion and certainly they tried to make it feel like a national obligation to do this and look at it maybe when we get to the bottom of it that it may be useful and safe to to use our concern really is that they've left out a lot of the information if you're looking for informed consent so to speak you need to know not only what we'd like it to do and promises that will do the right thing but also one of the limitations what are the risks those sorts of things and unfortunately that sort of information which would include design specifications the software source code the technical protocols and
5:25 am
a privacy impact assessment that involved why a consultation with everybody likely to be affected those sorts of things have not been released now and you know in that sense it's very disappointing and david i understand the app to actually work effectively you need something like 40 percent of the population to sign up to it is that likely here. well look i don't know where that figure of 40 percent comes from no nipping me ologist it may well be the case and like so much of this. you know the details surrounding the we don't know where that came from. or on the one hand we look at singapore when they used the precursor of this ep unfortunately didn't protect them from an outcry that's now occurred i think barely got about 17 percent of up hate. in other areas the suggestion that you might need even higher than the 40 percent that they're talking to i think the more that they operate in
5:26 am
a way that inspires trust and confidence the more likely people are to take it up now and the problem is that at the moment by not providing the critical information they're not so much working on an informed consent model but on a sort of a nudge model or persuasion of you know come on everybody let's do a very nice empathizing that goes with that but and certainly a lot of people will respond to that the jury's still out about whether the act itself is. sort of safe or as useful as they propose and so you know for someone seeking to make an informed judgment that left us in the dark of it well as you say the administration is not currently mandatory but i see that scott morrison has actually ruled that out and they're promising that all the data gathered will be denise said at the end of the pandemic that i know the government there doesn't have the best track record when it comes to protecting privacy is there the trust for this to act now. well look i think you'd have to say an astrolabe it's been
5:27 am
a remarkable degree of trust for the population to comply with and willingly go along and take a lot of the suffering and deprivation that's come from the lock down so in a sense that there's a bias of trust there in the public health authorities and it has actually been remarkably successful in australia as it has in new zealand in. the blocking that the spread of the virus when it gets to the questions about. whether this is voluntary or not. but if they have gone a long way you know in the last week to saying it's absolutely not and there are proposals for a law that whenever parliament sort of sits again which could be will sometime soon that they will legislate in ways that do protect it and that ensure that it's mandatory. the fact that so many of the entity is involved with this paid
5:28 am
a week ago to float the prospect that if we didn't do the right thing if we didn't get the right answer that it would be made mandatory that really set the cat among the peta i think it it reminded people for instance of the other big i think fiasco that was created by the digital transformation authority that's behind this software namely the my health record in that case and initially was voluntary until nobody signed up and then they just do it now i don't think that's the case here because you know they really do need to continue the trust and they do in a while a very cooperation but by human writing that in the 1st place it it raised a case for people of all my health record and lots of other things in australia where they really have given us cause for concern and it's something we'll continue to watch very closely indeed david vaile there aside the no expert at the university of new south wales thank you for joining us and outta there. now staff
