the democrats' iowa caucuses no one yet knows which of the leading presidential hopefuls help one support of the state's democratic slots booting up to camps or on both camps or day we need one more mental abuse is exercised in the great outdoors to help defeat for breast cancer. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program a 2nd death from a corona virus outside of the chinese mainland has been confirmed in hong kong the 1st death was in the philippines now china says that 425 people have now died of the disease and the number of confirmed infections has surged above 20000 president xi jinping has declared what he calls a people's war of prevention on the virus. but alarmist spreading in hong kong
2:02 pm
which was badly affected by the sars virus 18 years ago. ah. the best medicine is closing the border with china that's the demand from thousands of striking hong kong health care workers want from the government. the headline thing i hope the government listens to on demand quickly closes over borders and brings this epidemic under control i felt. it comes as hong kong became the 2nd place outside of the chinese mainland to report a death from the corona virus a 39 year old man who was suffering an underlying illness travel to harm in january hong kong's chief executive criticised the protestors and defended her decision to leave some parts of the border open. i certainly would not agree with the allegation that we. are not addressing this public health concern adequately
2:03 pm
the alarm has long since spread across china including to shanghai featuring unusually empty streets but among those out and about. taking precautions is a must to make them wear mouth when they go eyes when they come home they have to wash their hands. i believe in our country will overcome this. the number of confirmed infections rose by several 1000 again leaving many wondering when the worst will be over. for more let's bring in charlotte charleston pil our correspondent in hong kong charlotte what has been the impact of this strike. regarding the medical services in the city. well this is now the 2nd day of a 5 day strike by those medical workers here in hong kong sara no authority is ready. saying that there is
2:04 pm
a serious impact on the health care community the medical authority had already warned that emergency services have been affected so i think in particular the cat and nearing they took intensive. so there is some concern about the thousands of people who have walked off the job already and what could happen in the days ahead days with taking part in this strike have pointed out any disruption to medical services so far would be nothing compared to the disruption of a major outbreak of the new coronavirus here in hong kong they are warning that as it stands not enough preventive measures have been taken including the food closure of the borders and they say that they are not adequately prepared to be able to deal with a major outbreak but nevertheless i mean how how much support is there for the striking personnel because you know just on the face of it it appears counterproductive to strike at a time when the corona virus is indeed spreading. well that certainly
2:05 pm
has been the argument from some in the medical profession warning as you say now is not the time to walk off the job as the chief executive carry lam's also urging medical staff to go back to work too she's criticized this strike now what has to be pointed out is not all medical stop all taking part in this this is something that's been organized by a new union that was recently during the probe the anti-government protests people who we've spoken to there whether or not they actually support this strike action do launch really seem to be behind the motivation for this strike people we spoke to said that they do warn all the borders with mainland china to be close that of cool has there those fears are only being increased today by the news that a 39 year old man who had visited we had in mainland china the epicenter of the outbreak has lost his life today there's been 2 more confirmed cases and the fear
2:06 pm
the 4th is 17 cases now confirmed may have been transmitted here in hong kong there is no there is for all known to have traveled to mainland china that is something that is only increasing fear here particularly in light of the soul's epidemic as has been mentioned in which nearly 300 people lost their lives in this very a densely populated city so a lot of people here say they do support the full closure of the borders here with mainland china some pill in hong kong thank you charlotte. and as the number of corona virus cases continues to mount countries are taking drastic action to prevent it spread to pan has quarantined a cruise ship carrying almost 4000 people over fears of an outbreak onboard the diamond princess is now anchored in yokohama bay a former passenger tested positive for the corona virus after disembarking in hong kong days earlier a medical team has boarded the ship and is checking passengers so far 8 people on
2:07 pm
board have shown symptoms such as fever passengers say that they have been told to wait in their cabins to be tested. and earlier we spoke with reporter julian rial about why the japanese government had put the ship and quarantine you can see yokohama behind me that's about 3 or 4 kilometers distant where i am i mean a residential district overlooking the. but the japanese authorities i just want to keep this out but have had 20. injured. but they're very concerned that if 3700 people go to the boat potentially all of you might be carrying this disease limit could have a bigger problem will move hands but it looks like we're going to have to go through the entire book from stem to stern very very carefully and check every individual may not want to make a couple has done and of course often done we have to wait for the results of these tests to come through to be confirmed and of course the boat and rush to be cleaned from stem to stern is going to be alone i'm times taking process and that was
2:08 pm
reporter julian rial joining us from yokohama in japan now many people around the world they are concerned about the spread of the corona virus despite its relatively low mortality rate but you shouldn't panic if you start feeling ill because some symptoms are similar to those of the common cold or flu most common viruses affect the upper respiratory track with a runny nose snore throat and sneezing the flu can cause and for the rest of former president jacob zuma he failed to appear at a hearing of a corruption charges which he denies zim is lawyer said that the former president was overseas seeking medical treatment zuma resigned in 20 team after almost a decade in office. it's the u.s. senate has heard closing arguments in the impeachment trial of president donald trump and democrats argue that trump abused his power by pressuring ukraine to investigate a political rival this republican said the trump did nothing illegal the republican

2:10 pm
new hampshire the i was south carolina well beyond the rest of the wrong because. the issue is the delay has caused embarrassment for the democrats biden's campaign wrote a letter demanding a full explanation for the problems. but some of the candidates used to delay to declare their successes regardless when those results are already out so i have a good feeling we're going to be doing very very well there was a night an improbable became an undeniable reality was. it was and if the candidates weren't getting ahead of themselves the supporters would it is too close to call so i'm just going to tell you what i do know you was

2:14 pm
the world health organization says that the number of people suffering from cancer is likely to rise sharply in the coming years the warning is included in a report that the organization has released for world cancer day the good news is that more research better treatment and programs to prevent cancer could help save lives over the next decade cancer killed an estimated 9600000 people in 2080 on the heart disease causes more deaths the most frequent diagnosed forms of cancer are lung cancer and breast cancer each responsible for just under 12 percent of all cases they're followed by colorectal cancer at around 10 percent smoking tobacco tops the list of preventable causes of cancer deaths it is followed by an unhealthy diet obesity and a lack of exercise and joining us now from geneva is the world health
2:15 pm
organization's dr andre eld vali welcome to the program and thank you so much for joining us there have been great strides in preventing and treating cancer as we've heard but the w.h.o. report of warns of a spike in the number of cases saying that we can expect a 60 percent rise in the next 2 decades why is that forecasts oh hi. thanks sarah the cancer burden we know will grow in high income countries and this report shows that it is also going to increase significantly in low and middle income countries as governments are no more effectively treating traditional challenges infectious diseases maternal deaths we know that people will be exposed to the chronic risk factors that will increase the likelihood that they will develop cancer perhaps in their forty's fifty's and sixty's so what this report shows is that in fact governments in low and middle income countries will see an 80 percent increase or greater this is an urgent call for a global response to the cancer burden to set priorities and to invest wisely to
2:16 pm
prevent and to control cancer cases everywhere let's talk about one of those priorities which is you know survival after diagnosis because it appears as if there's a lot of inequality in who survives especially between developed and developing nations what do we need to do to narrow that disparity. yeah that's absolutely right sara now we know that progress has been made in high income countries there has been incredible innovation in research and investments in cancer control in high income countries but we know both within high income countries the poor communities and developing countries have not had access to those innovations in how to set the global agenda we have to make decisions as to what are the most impactful and effective treatment and prevention options in that regard for example we see that within the w.h.o. we've called for the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem this could be a major achievement and it's achievable in the next 5 to 8 decades before $2100.00
2:17 pm
that means cancers like cervical cancer can be wiped out entirely now to do that we have to focus on pillars of action prevention early detection and treatment we will need action in all those domains for example h.p.v. vaccination detecting cancer early or screening to prevent cancer from starting cervical cancer screening and then building capacity in treatment because there will be many women there will be many individuals who will develop cancer even in the best situations of prevention in fact in the next decade alone we know that 200000000 people will be diagnosed with cancer and will require treatment so we must focus on building capacity that is how do we establish a stronger set of workforce how to rebuild cancer centers and doing that will ensure that that divide you're mentioning can be narrowed and that pillar of prevention that you have mentioned the report also focuses on the importance of exercise to fight cancer why is it a fact if. that is in fact one of the increasing risk factors that we have to
2:18 pm
consider as we look at the next $1.00 to $2.00 decades obesity and a lack of physical activity will in fact increase the cancer burden for high income countries but also for low and middle income countries in the past 15 years effectively every country in the world has seen an increase in obesity and obesity is a major risk factor for cancer so physical activity and healthy diet is an important pillar for prevention as you're saying but in fact it's also an important pillar for people who are actively receiving cancer treatment and also for cancer survivors we know that cancer survivors who are able to be physically active maintain a healthy body weight are in fact at lower risk for their cancer coming back and at lower risk for developing a 2nd type of cancer. dr andrea about from the world health organization in geneva thank you. and as we've heard there are a range of treatment options for cancer and research has shown that sports can help some doctors even include controlled exercise and their cancer treatment programs
2:19 pm
