1:02 am
in just one day health experts say the true figure could be much higher because of a low level of testing the number of confirmed infections is more than 300000 making brazil the 3rd worst affected in the country affected country excuse me after the u.s. and russia despite that president joe your boss an arrow continues to press for a reopening of the nation's economy and with cases piling up in brazil the mayor of rio de janeiro has unveiled a new field hospital dedicated to treating covert 1000 patients. right here in the field hospital you all seeing 50 new intensive care beds are going to open and for a spectacular by bringing down the infection of and we've more intensive care beds being opened and we've multimedia robbing next week from china we all really hoping that we can gradually relativity and safely return to activities in the city of rio
1:03 am
de janeiro. while the world health organization has raised the alarm about the corona virus outbreak in south america the agency's executive director of health emergencies is also warned against turning to untested treatments. south america has become a new at the center for the disease we've seen many south american countries with. increasing numbers of cases and and clearly there's a concern across many of those countries but certainly the most affected is that at this point. we also know that. the government of brazil has approved the use of hydroxy chloroquine for broader use but we do point to the fact that our current clinical and systematic review is carried out by a fine american health organization on the current claim that clinical evidence does not support the widespread use of hydroxy chloroquine for the treatment of cope with 19 so just
1:04 am
a moment ago we were telling you about brazil's supreme court that's now released a video showing the president's allegedly trying to interfere in law enforcement let's bring in our lot america editor of the c n n she's joining us from a semi in capital what more can you tell us about this video. hello there well 1st of all i'm outside in santiago with this mask on because it's mandatory what's happened is that as you may remember the former minister of justice was just resigned a few weeks ago he was the most popular minister under the bo'sun national government and he left accusing the president of interfering of meddling in the justice system in order to defend his own personal interests and that means that his own sons because especially his eldest son flavio who is was and is being investigated finds of wrongdoing and and money laundering and beyond and so what in this meeting this video what it does is it seems to prove that what sent tomorrow had said and that
1:05 am
is the president had actually verbalized and said literally that he wanted to get rid of the police officer in rio de janeiro and that if he couldn't get rid of rid of the one in rio de janeiro he wanted to get rid of his watch in other words the former federal police chief well bosso not a did indeed dismiss he fired him or his boss in other words the minister of justice so what he's saying and he said that the reason he wanted to do this is that he was not going to allow anybody to quote and i won't use the words of 4 letter word with his family in other words he wanted to protect his children the president says that that's not what he meant that he was talking about his son's personal security but it certainly by the sounds of this the audiotape that was just released doesn't sound that way and since the president is being investigated for possible wrongdoing on this score which is an impeachable offense it is making things more difficult for a while so not only is popularity is already plummeting because of his handling of
1:06 am
the coronavirus crisis yeah exactly the say i'll just keep you with us for just a moment to ask you how damaging this is all potentially going to be for balls that are. you know the tapes are to us it's a 2 hour conversation it was a cabinet meeting and sen joe modeled the former justice minister had said that there were lots of juicy bits in it and i'm quoting him and there are there parts that i just heard when the president is absolutely rubbish in the dubliners the manner is he's saying that he needs to arm the people of brazil to prevent the politics of falling into a dictatorship it goes even beyond what i've just talked about and that is possible means for a or rather motives for a political impeachment trial so we're going to have to see now what the brazil how the bazillion people react to it but some of it is very very strong stuff indeed the c.s. thank you very much for that update from santiago now president donald trump says
1:07 am
he'll order the u.s. flying to be flown at half staff over the next 3 days as the u.s. coronavirus death toll approaches 100000 all 50 states have partially reopened after 2 months shut down even though some are still recording a rising number of new infections trump has been urging governors to safely open the country to help the economy recover despite fears that could lead to a 2nd wave if in fact since he's now declared houses of worship essential services and called for governors to reopen them some governors have deemed a liquor stores an abortion clinics is essential but have left out churches and other houses of worship snow right so i'm correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential i call upon governors to allow our churches in places of worship to open right now if they don't do it i will override the governors. in america we need more prayer not less our white house correspondent kimberly halkett
1:08 am
has more. well essentially what the u.s. president has done is set up a battle once again between his white house and the 50 governors across the united states many who are still in force in very strict stay at home orders particularly when it pertains to houses of worship so this would be churches mosques synagogues essentially the concern being that when you have large groups get gathering and congregating that this could allow for an asymptomatic person to spread unknowingly to other members of the congregation but at the same time many churches particularly in california where more than 1200 are threatening to open up this weekend the u.s. president has just made an announcement new c.d.c. guidelines that the centers for disease control that essentially gives them the ammunition to defy their local orders to stay at home the u.s.
1:09 am
president saying that he's calling on governors to open these houses of worship right away and most interestingly he said if they don't override the governor is now very quickly the u.s. president doesn't have the power to do that under the u.s. constitution there are very strong states' rights but what he seems to be implying is that his department of justice may challenge this under the 1st amendment or the right to freedom of religion peaceful assembly but that would take a long time to dry out what's really clear in all of this is in an election year where we know that so many who attend church regularly have voted for the u.s. president he's trying to deliver for his constituency he hopes will help him win reelection in november. well an airbus jetliner with 99 people on board has crashed into a crowded neighborhood near the airport in the coastal pakistani city of karachi at
