considered a way it was a a surge or resurgence of infections superimposed upon a baseline francis' that really never got down to where we wanted to go if you look at the at the grass from europe europe the european union as an entity it went up and then came down to baseline now they're having little blips as you might expect as they try to we open we would help never came down to baseline and now is surging back so it's a serious situation that we have to address immediately brazil meanwhile which is struggling to contain the virus is easing more restraint sions bars restaurants and other businesses are reopening in south pottle and in india which has become the country with the 3rd highest number of cases well then he 50000 new infections reported in just the past 2 days well have more on the situation in india in just a moment but 1st white house correspondent kimberly hauck has
a nativist on the situation in the u.s. well there's a spike in cases all across the united states 40 out of the 50 showing really increased and record breaking in some cases numbers of coronavirus cases and that has certainly got the new york governor or the democratic governor concerned as you point out he says the president is enabling the virus what's he talking about well the u.s. president over the weekend really tried to downplay this number saying that the reason that there is an increase is because there's more testing going on in that 99 percent of the people to get coronavirus will that harmless this is certainly something that the new york governor has pushed back on this the president don't be a coconspirator of covert do one simple thing acknowledge to be american people that covert exists. it is a major problem it's going to continue until we
admit it. to do our work part well the u.s. president has not been admitting that is a major problem instead in the last hour he's been pushing back against his joe biden the democratic presidential nominee he'll be facing off against in november in fact he's saying that far more people would have died if joe biden was in the white house pushing back on the criticisms about closing trav close in the united states travelers from china he's also said that deaths are down 39 percent in the united states and again is pushing for the economy to reopen ease been as we see some states starting to close acknowledging they may have open too soon in the case of southern florida we now see jim's closing as well as some dining room still the u.s. president pushing ahead with reopening twitting and all caps that schools especially should reopen in the fall. brazilian president has been tested folk over 1000 after
being taken to a military hospital with a high fever but he says he is lungs that clean area boss narrative further steps to water down along wearing face masks so they no longer have to be one in presence for instance last week he vetoed the use of masks in churches schools and shops. face widespread criticism for not wearing a mask in public and flouting social distancing goals brazil is the hardest hit country in latin america but despite this the largest city zapato is borrowing to pressure from the business sector to rest rections latin america at its embassy in yemen reports. there's something seriously disturbing about this picture at least according to every day milledge ists few if any countries in the world have as many gyms per capita as does brazil with physical fitness is an obsession. but the permission to reopen in gyms forests restaurants and shopping centers in rio de
janeiro and sao paulo brazil 2 biggest cities comes just as the country surpasses 1600000 infections and more than 65000 deaths from code 19 the glasgow nettled technical director of this jim applauds the move with the article to respond if i am very optimistic because physical activity is part of the solution to the problem people have 2 weeks is ours. but is this graph shows at the top of the list of places people should stay away from during the pandemic are bars gyms and cell service restaurants because of the high risk of contagion sajak it ws i asked epidemiology astutely valley badal if brazil was near the peak of the infections us. in much of brazil not only has it not reached the peak but rather it is spreading to places that have far weaker public health services than in the main cities places that don't have emergency care units or other basics and in
a country as large as brazil you can just move patients to places with better care . not one of those remote places of course is the amazon rain forest 100 to the indigenous people have already been infected. brazil's public prosecutor is investigating charges presented by indigenous rights advocates that last week's visit to some of the most isolated tribes like the no money by members of the defense ministry has spread the virus. the ministry with thinks the charges. what is a thought how can an organization that is concerned about indigenous people be upset by giving medical treatment and food to indigenous peoples. but world renowned brazilian photographer and amazon preservationists simple sounds algal says that's absurd as a dancer but as it is the brazilian authorities know have known and will see again that the indigenous people don't have the antibodies to protect themselves from
diseases that come from outside the forest so the penetration into indigenous territories promoted by president both the narrow is really genocide. whether in prisons most remote areas or in its major cities the spread of corona virus remains out of control despite measures spurred by economic pressures that would make it seem that the pandemic is almost over you see in human al-jazeera. india may have the 3rd highest number of cases globally but that's not stopping it from lifting measures some popular monuments have reopened for the 1st time in more than 3 months but historic buildings in the city of agra including the taj mahal remain closed and as for some new delhi. it took emperor ashaji han 17 years to build the taj mahal in the 17th century and for those wishing to see the mob a muslim for his wife months the wait just got longer. we were very excited
about coming here my daughter's been frustrated and so were we after sitting at home for weeks so we decided to come here when we heard that it was going to open but now we're disappointed. the indian government open many monuments on monday for the 1st time since march but the taj mahal will remain shut because it's surrounded by areas under quarantine elsewhere in the country few people wanted to venture out given the rising number of coronavirus cases delhi's most famous tower the 12th century cook them is usually one of the most popular tourist sites in the country with $8000.00 visitors a day but in the 8 hours since its reopened only about 50 people have come to visit . with international flights still suspended many who depend on tourism a worried about how they'll survive really all guides already voted on a speaking because cases are not declining they're going up because there will be
fear in the psychology of the. voters about going to a new place and that is definitely has a negative impact not only in delhi with all over india. the indian government says it's tested $10000000.00 people so far but it still has one of the lowest tested rates per capita in the world so reported cases are serious on the true numbers of infections that are probably in the 10s of millions of at this point in time for now it's going to keep continuing to live get some of the hundreds of millions of cases. and i don't really see a reason. because we really don't have an effective control measure. but the central government unwilling to reimpose a national lockdown because of its economic impact states are implementing their own measures to do it on the carillon has begun a one week lockdown allowing only essential services kolkata has suspended flights from the 6 worst hit cities for 2 weeks given india's large size and population
health experts say different regions will experience a peak in infections at different times elizabeth al jazeera new delhi kenya's president has announced a phased reopening of the country with international flights are resume from august 1st kenyatta has been under pressure to kickstart the struggling economy after nearly 4 months of frustrations a ban on movement in and out of 3 cities including the capital nairobi will be lifted from july 15th but a nighttime curfew will remain in place for another month kenya has the highest number of infections in east africa. still ahead on the program the former partner of billionaire geoffrey epstein is moved to an out of prison have the details and the show must go on why it's no longer the u.k.'s lots.
