and turned to doctors he scorned calls to respect social distancing he seemed to relish defying even his own advisors only as pressing the flesh and rarely using a face mask many members of his cabinet had become infected even his wife's grandmother some joked he'd made a pact with the devil until what was probably the inevitable that happened. of you accuse me of my fill the west side. where everybody knew that sooner or later current of our sort of reach an important part of population a lot of people like me for example if i would not have done the test i would not know about a result that was positive yes it was positive. so far bosso not has admitted to having a feeder and body aches but continues to brush off the severity of an illness he once described as a little true even taking off his face mask after testing positive. for the
bureaucratic of the theft ok so you can see my face who wants to see my face i'm fine calm thank god. thanks that i was that prayed for me was supporting me i'm fine thank god. it's not just bill some not his health but his political reputation that's at stake he's waged war against lockdowns saying they're more harmful than the illness. he's clashed with governors who ordered businesses closed and the supreme court which recently felt compelled to order the president to wear a face mask or pay a steep fine thank you for taking his cue from donald trump also not who has threatened to withdraw from the w.h.o. and has ordered the brazils health system distribute the anti malaria drug hydroxide chloroquine despite warnings that it's not safe or proven to be effective through treating coronavirus he's in fact using it now himself. nevertheless wishes. meanwhile i'm
a speedy and full recovery from from this disease other leaders around the world have of have had similar experiences and i think it brings home cross all the the reality of this fires that will likely depend on how president paul soon i don't fence on whether he'll become seriously ill as was a british prime minister boris johnson or whether he'll be back at work in a week or 2 telling everyone i told him so. all this despite the more than 65000 positions who have lost their lives so far so called little. you see in human al-jazeera. is an associate professor at the pub difficult catholic university of rio de janeiro he says baltimore is ill this could work in his favor. this is not a man of deep insights i think and also it also true it's also extraordinary convenient for him in some ways indeed if it stays our late course right he'll be
able to continue on his narrative that it's just a flu and can be cured easily he was also scheduled to be deposed by the federal police on its allegations of. one do influence taking next week so the timing is not known and one stays late course the time is not altogether bad if it stays within these sort of 85 percent that are the life forces and it will likely strengthen those who. who who are doubting the severity of the of breaking of it may actually end up lowering the end even to cutting into it getting to be distancing measures here which isn't likely to begin we've seen this kind of catastrophic responsibly that the country is had has to deal with a total lack of leadership from the federal represented had every possibility of having an absolutely model response to this and make we have a very strong public health system we have highly trained doctors we have good
i.c.u. then city we have what you know experience with pandemics treatment of hiv and aids here is actually quite quite advanced so you know it's a sign of failure of leadership in the federal level this that this is turned out the rain has and the crowds have tried to storm services parliament after the announcement of a return to tough coronavirus restrictions of the right place for spent thousands of protesters many calling for president alexander to resign he's put a weekend curfew back in place after serving as worse day of the pandemic with 13 deaths reach it lifted restrictions in the weeks but hold his win in last month's elections including allowing crowds back to sporting events elena glue shechinah has been following events and the clashes around parliament which went on into the early morning. the president alexander who teaches now some new measures because of
the coronavirus he said during the weekend belgrade will be locked down and maybe not only belgrade but to the entire serbia because the situation would put on a virus is a very bad and the worst is here in belgrade though we have more than the 4000 people in the hospitals just today 13 people died over the coronavirus this is the highest number in one day so what happened today is that people were very angry of this situation and we did this kind of measures to why because serbia was already has already been in a state of emergency before and then alter it is said it's ok now things are going better let's have in the elections so we had the parliamentary elections in the day after numbers started to increase and today the situation is even worse than before so people are angry. they think that the money should be invested in
hospitals and not in the election and this is what happened tonight it seems like the situation a little bit quieter now but the moral maybe we'll see the same picture again. critical uses continue to climb in the united states the number of dead has now surpassed 130000 and infections are surging in states a push to reopen early but president trump continues to downplay the resurgence of the pandemic and says that he wants schools to reopen in the new school year mike hanna has more now from washington d.c. . texas is one of the 1st states to use its mitigating measures responding to pressure from president trump in mid april who insisted he wanted states to open up to restart the economy. now with stealing with a massive increase in impact. since joining florida in reporting more than 10000
cases in a day a figure matched only by new york state in the early stages of the pandemic in the next 2 weeks we're probably going to end up being what new york was 2 months ago i think that's what's going to happen tanya ingraham has been an i.c.u. nurse for 17 years last week she went from caring for patients to becoming a patient herself after testing positive i really at one point in time asked god to take me the pain wise ridiculous. it was a clue i mean in my mind i couldn't breathe think i didn't have to be put on ventilator the republican governor who ordered the early opening of texas is now dialing back and reimposing mitigating measures including the wearing off masks we warn not have to shut it down if everyone will follow this very simple rule and that is just get
a mascot this where it make sure that you don't get covered 18 and you don't give it to anybody else but the u.s. president continues to be masculists and even as the cases surges now are putting pressure on governors to open schools for the new year at the end of august we want to do is we want to get our schools open we want to get them open quickly beautifully in the fall and the as you know this is a disease it's a horrible disease but young people do extraordinarily well the reaction from teachers was furious that is so callous and him so callous we do it wrong people die. little people can get sick you have asthma you've got bad allergies and you're 6 years old you could die if we do this ron there was anger too among many in congress which was
officially notified that president trump is pulling the united states out of the world health organization the notice period is 12 months so the u.s. will actually only leave the w.h.o. in july next year between then and now is an election and presidential candidate joe biden says one of his 1st acts as president will be to reverse the decision effectively it will be up to the voters to decide mike hanna al-jazeera washington . actually private is a political commentator and a board member of republican women for progress she says it's another reckless decision by president troubles will put americans at risk. for him it will just stand to be a talking point in his campaign you know this whole entire time he's blaming the virus on other countries and not taking responsibility for the disastrous effects but his response from his own administration is that here there are states that
opened way too early and a lot of those states are states with republican governors who felt political pressure from this president and this administration to reopen and as a result their cases are surging in spiking in those states and now they're faced with a tough decision to shut down their states again facing future economic impacts as a result places a huge void in the membership by not having the u.s. at the table and that really is what the problem is here it's going to affect clinical trials it will affect future vaccines it will affect responses to emerging outbreaks and that's really where americans are now being put at risk because of a reckless decision by the president so i do think who you know is at a situation right now where they're going to realize that the united states' membership was a crucial one and we've always been looked to as a leader i'm not sure that there is leadership right now it seems to be a large vacuum there when it comes to the current officeholder at $1600.00
pennsylvania avenue but at the same time i do think because this will take up to a year hopefully a responsible decision is made but this again does put americans at risk because of the fact that we won't be information sharing with other countries that are working to develop vaccines and host clinical trials to really try to find innovations and solutions to fight these deadly diseases. well still ahead here on al-jazeera the united nations condemns the killing of a prominent iraqi analyst and research or why his family blames the government and on the defensive mexico's president is accused of selling out as he prepares to meet president trump at the white house those stories after the break. however still plenty of moisture around for the mountains of a man to generate thunderstorms and they are quite good ones when they happen and
equally the on shore breeze insulin has made it more or less continually continuously of a cost was just every now and again but not continuous just which is yet this brown stain you see is a hint of dust carried in the air coming down from iraq is nothing. in fact doha's 40 indicates rather more humid weather in the immediate future where the wind picks up the dust again and syria into iraq once while temperatures here have hit 50 in the last couple days we're still in the high forty's clearly it's much nicer the further west you go with that on shore breeze from the mediterranean now the driving force of the monsoon is once more generating big showers and are on the way to the coast maybe of somalia more likely tanzania and iraq that's the orange suggesting some pretty heavy downpours it's been dry here for a while so that on shore breeze makes a significant difference the big showers where you are expected to be south sudan's in the wet season so this is a moment so juba is going to forecast next 3 days or rather of rain or
thunderstorms the temperature of just $30.00 to $34.00 degrees it drops down to $23.00 at night so it's not especially humid. join our global community they call the crisis is just slapped isn't the place the blessing upon latin upon latin human hands equals global health keeping you up to date why so for situation where we have a human rights prices that persist beyond the help prices on your questions is a dialogue just nothing we are now approaching across route this is an opportunity that we must miss the stream on al-jazeera. earth.
