10:07 pm
listen in to what anthony found she had today when he gave his testimony today on capitol hill. expressed then and again it's my concern that if some areas city states or what have you jump over those various checkpoints and prematurely open up without having the capability of being able to respond effectively and efficiently my concern is that we will start to see little spikes might turn into outbreaks. so all of a sudden talk to the president have clashed repeatedly over how to deal with the pandemic so how is the white house likely to respond to his testimony. this rifle and at the same time and as well as deborah burks of the task force repeatedly had to correct president trump's claims sometimes really bizarre claims like the one about injecting a disinfectant and his aides then told him that he would damage himself and then
10:08 pm
stopped his corona virus briefings of course today anthony fall she testifying he was able to give his own take and that's not a very flattering one for president trump but he is in a very tough spot president because anthony felt as well as the very popular figure so attacking them could simply backfire and result in the loss of popularity for the president himself and how the our american seeing this tension between getting back to work and being and dealing with the condit 90. well yes so he has trumpet his administration facing facing a lot of criticism there's a recent poll suggesting that a majority of the americans think it's not worth risking the public health for opening the economy too quickly i think that the major allegation here is that trump and his administration acted too late with as we know trump didn't take the threat posed by the corona virus very seriously we're now counting 80000 casualties in the united states with 1300000 infections and counting and president obama at
10:09 pm
the same time is still bragging with his work with the work of his administration in countering the outbreak we could see that very well at a press conference on monday when he said the united states and germany are leading the fight against corruption of course delivering a very distorted image so he's facing criticism but at the same time it's also fair to say that his supporters still continue to back him all of a sudden to washington thank you. now let's take a brief look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world now u.s. president donald trump has tweeted his support for electric car make a tesla the company restarted its factory in california defying a local order restricting nonessential businesses c.e.o. evil must instead to pull the factories out of the state if officials don't allow production to continue. the suicide bomber killed at least 2 dozen people at

affected children now warnings they could be more vulnerable than 1st thought. this is every parent's nightmare right. your child me or surely be affected by this riders but it's something we have to consider seriously. the u.s. hotspot of new york is investigating dozens of children taken to hospital all showing symptoms similar to cows aki disease a rare inflammatory condition. and it's associated with. a rash oftentimes don't at all discomforts things like. doctors increasingly see a link to coated 19. the reason i believe that we're seeing war right now is just because of the sheer number of children who have. the concern is also growing in europe as children head back to school after weeks of
10:15 pm
lockdown now parents are asking if it's really safe. from the last 10 days is that this disease the scimitar color sucky for young children may still have a lot of questions but for now health authorities around the world have few answers other than to be vigilant and gather more data we've asked for is for the global network of clinicians to be on alert for this and to ensure that they capture information on children systematically the statistics still paint a positive picture for children showing them unlikely to fall ill to the corona virus and doctors stressed the link to cause ocular symptoms still isn't 100 percent. we've all maldonado's especially for the fractious diseases on the profession of pediatrics at stanford university in the united states welcome to the don't be so we have lots of children showing these sentiments in cities with substantial coverage 90 outbreaks is there anything else that indicates that this
10:16 pm
is likely to be related to coronavirus well stanford we actually think we identify probably the 1st case documented callus sakis associated with covert 19 back in march so the main thing that we notice was the child at classic symptoms of callous sakhi disease and also had a positive test by p.c.r. so we know that there was a definitely association and how dangerous is this condition. well how is that he's known about for many many years it's been around for a long time and it is associated with inflammation probably related to many different kinds of infections bacterial as well as viral so this could be very similar in the sense that the virus that coated a virus sars kovi to might be triggering an inflammatory response but it's not very
10:17 pm
common so parents shouldn't it didn't should necessarily what i mean the pet is a guy quite a lot to worry about at the moment this seems to be something else to put on their plates. yeah i think i understand the concern i have 3 children myself there and else and but this is actually quite a rare disease in fact even in the u.s. for many years we've been tracking callous saki and we don't see more than a few dozen cases a year in the u.s. on a regular basis and the disease has been that described as you know in the u.k. and other countries in europe but not in high numbers it is unfortunately. can cause serious complications but those are all treatable and most the vast majority are treatable right so given its rarity is that should local health authorities be doing anything different when it when it comes to their guidance to about children
10:18 pm
and covered 90 well i think what we're doing is pediatricians is we're letting all over pediatric colleagues around the world know that they should be on the lookout virtually every pediatric doctor knows what callis actually looks like and what it is and we have very strict very good guidelines for how to treat it so as long as people are aware that it's a possibility that it could happen and for parents they should know that if their child has a high fever and they have a rash. which many children do but if they last for more than 3 or 4 days they should be in touch with their health care provider to check with them and see if there's anything they should be doing about it and then just a quick wouldn't coronavirus itself it does seem to be a particularly tricky custom another we use it new but it seems to display behaviors and cause effects that leave lots of clinicians scratching their heads.
10:19 pm
it is it's a very puzzling virus so i hope that over time we will learn more about why it triggers the various symptoms that it does it's not typical of very much that we've ever seen before it has a very strange combination but we are very fortunate that there are lot of people all around the world working hard to try and understand why it's causing the disease that it does but good talking to thank you for joining us professor but i do from stanford university. if you. well a crown of ours pandemic has brought the work of nurses into sharp focus as a struggle to care for patients suffering from cough and 19 today international nurses day nurses around the world are speaking out demanding better protection as they risk their lives to do their jobs businesses they also about the 200th anniversary of the birth. of modern nursing florence nightingale.
