now having 40 plus 1000 new cases a day i would not be surprised if we go up to $100000.00 a day if this does not turn around dr found she was just one in a chorus of concerned voices who say not enough americans assertion distancing all wearing masks unfortunately this simple lifesaving practice has become part of the political debate that says this if you're for trump you don't wear a mask and you're against trump you do that's why i've suggested that the president occasionally wear a mask over or the republican urge the president to set a better example for many the stakes are too high for any political stigma surrounding mosques. earlier i spoke with correspondent stephens humans and washington asked him what's being done to bring the coronavirus pandemic under
5:04 am
control there they are basically on their knees mystify all g. and his colleagues on their knees and beg for young people to be. to be cautious and not together in lots krauts they are on their knees and beg people to wear masks when ever there and however they are out in the boat and not in their private homes so it is those little things of course they larger problem too and that is still testing and tracing. there is actually numbers out there and theories that predict since that the number off the daily cases is above 100000 already because it's a largely under reported however this is what. she and other experts saying where masts do not fall for fall safety avoid the beaches and the bars and what have you and where is the federal leadership it's not coming from the white house as at the
5:05 am
moment still the president is missing in action when it comes to wearing a mask or aunt guidance and mend a tory rules meant it mandates for the states on a federal level and here's some of the other developments in the corona virus pandemic brazil has reported nearly 40000 new infections in the past 24 hours alone the country's overall death toll is now approaching 60000 china has identified a new flu virus carried by pigs that can infect humans according to researchers the new strain has the potential to become a pandemic virus although they say there is not yet an imminent threat and european plane manufacturer airbus is cutting $15000.00 jobs after seeing its business plummet due to the pandemic the majority of positions slashed will be in france and in germany. german defense minister on a cut our has ordered the partial dissolution of germany's elite k s k commandos following reports of right wing extremism in their ranks the unit which specializes
5:06 am
in anti terror and rescue operations may face a major reorganization and up to 70 of its $1400.00 personnel could be cut military investigators announce that they suspect 20 k. is a personnel of holding stream right views the defense minister accusing the unit of quote toxic leadership culture and said it cannot cannot continue to exist in its present form. our reporter max merrill is following this story for us max thanks for joining us so how serious is the problem of right wing extremism well it's a problem in itself in the german forces but here in this so-called k s k unit it's rife 5 times the average amount of far right individuals have been identified then comparison to generally in the german forces and that internal report has been very damning i mean you mentioned this toxic leadership culture that they have identified that they have seen extremist tendencies that have been tolerated they
5:07 am
say by the leadership and a lax handling of equipment and ammunition which is very disturbing i mean disappearing some of which was found recently at a soldier's home they did praise the efforts in deployments of this unit but also have said that there will be no more training exercises or deployments abroad for the time being and this whole unit is on probation until october 31st and leadership here it is said has allowed parts of this unit to become autonomous and also encourage or at least not discourage far right tendencies so it sounds like that's been building for a while so why has it taken german authorities so long to crack down on this well i think it's hard to say really it's baffling to say the least i mean it is a very secretive organization it's actually not even known to the. public how big it is the exact size and how many people work for it but the opposition has strongly condemned the saying that the government has trivialized the issue and

5:09 am
that is set until october 31st they have said that it could be despondent but so far the idea is to reform rather than to completely disband you know his maxwell thanks for that. now to some of the other stories making news around the world. president donald trump has approved plans to withdraw all nearly $10000.00 u.s. troops from germany he did not specify when the reductions would happen but it's expected most of the personnel will be sent to poland. president has repeatedly accused germany of not contributing enough to nato spending. germany has taken over the rotating presidency of the european council for the next 6 months berlin will organize an preside over all european union meetings chancellor angela merkel said her focus during the presidency would be on the coronavirus pandemic and europe's economic recovery. a flag raising ceremony in hong kong has marked the 23rd
