5:02 am
that the approach, you know, will not be sustainable. and considering the behavior of the bias, i think a shift will be very important. it is important to reflect of the fact that china has only had just over $15000.00 decks during the whole pandemic. so in that sense, china had something to protect. and certainly over the last since for february march, there was a rapid rise and death. so there for any government that situation will take action to try and come back, come by that. but all of those actions, as we said, since the beginning, should be a true respect to individual and human rights. and we always have said a story told we need to balance the control measures against the impact they have on society the impact to have on the economy. and that's not always an easy calibration to me. all right, let's bring in, i'll just here is katrina you who's joining us from beijing via skype. katrina, how are recent locked downs affecting china's economic growth?

5:04 am
corbin policy just last thursday. president gigi pig said that this was the only way forward, and any critics would be silenced and punished. and this is really being seen to have an impact on a number of sectors in china's economy. china's services sector has shrunk the manufacturing sector, which is known to be the back burner. china's economic growth has also taken a huge blore, and that in turn, has affected millions of workers, especially low income migrant workers. and there's a lot of concerns well about growing unemployment here in china for you graduates as well. they're expecting about $11000000.00 new graduates this year a lauren and they not sure exactly where they're going to be employed. and also all of this really has tight investing confidence. we've seen chinese stock slipping for some time now. and katrina. what's the latest when it comes to the overall situation with outbreaks? there now?
5:05 am
well i mentioned her a dozens of regions affected about $30.00 to $40.00 across the country, an imposing right now varying levels of restrictions trying to get corbet outbreaks under control. i'm in the capitol begging in the east in shall young district. and we've been under a sort of light locked down for about 2 or 3 weeks now i had and got mass testing pretty much every 2nd day. we've been told to work from her, and that's why we're under miss skype right now. bus and train route, some of them have been cancelled, and that's when we're seeing in the capital single digit community transmissions, which just goes to show how the authorities here are scrambling to do whatever they can award a city wide lockdown. and of course, the abbey center of the current not locked down a current outbreak in china. it remains in shanghai. they've had about 1500 new cases reported today, which is really down from numbers that we saw earlier. i during this current
5:06 am
outbreak in april, which we so figures of about $20000.00. but we've seen the authorities and set of easing restrictions. they've gone backwards again as are people who are previously allowed to maybe leave their apartments, walk around their neighborhood. they've all been told to stay indoors for the so called quiet period while the government try to really get this number 1500 down to 0. and of course, has been a lot of frustration and anger around that because they simply do not know when this strict locked down in shanghai is going to and als 0 is katrina. you're joining us from aging. thanks so much. ah, a top u. s. intelligence official is warning that russian president vladimir putin is preparing for a prolonged conflict in ukraine. national intelligence director, admiral haines, says the criminal actions could escalate and become more unpredictable over the next few months. she's also warning that putin will impose marshall,
