celebrations on the mainland the trade unions there are threatening to strike unless a border is completely shot wayne hayes our correspondent the sentence this report from hong kong. concern is growing in hong kong but the number of coronavirus cases here could be about to sharply increase a shortage of face masks has resulted in long lines forming outside some shops as people try to protect themselves as much as possible i'm sorry to hear it's 2 am. this morning. so i would be waiting for all 6 to 7 hours. to get the mosque to try to control the spread of the virus the hong kong government has suspended most rail and ferry services to and from the mainland. but some border crossings are still open and flights are operating which is led to criticism from many in hong kong who want all routes between here and china closed
4:04 pm
adding to the concern it's estimated as many as 300000 hong kong residents visited the mainland during the lunar new year holiday with many still to return government medical experts say the city needs to be on alert for more infections most of the confirmed cases in hong kong are being treated at this hospital where this week several nurses went on strike for a day as part of a wider union protest against the government's response to the outbreak of the virus that threatening more strike action next week which could coincide with an increase in the number of cases in hong kong in tokyo a 2nd flight landed carrying japanese citizens evacuated from as it did the government confirm some passengers on wednesday's 1st flight tested positive for the virus over with the national institute of infectious diseases have reported to us 3 new cases of corona virus related diseases the city they left behind remains

on able to get out is being quarantined there while the health authorities are carrying out tests on a chinese couple this couple allegedly entered the country reporting into the country into milan airport on the 25th of january the wife appeared to have come down with symptoms she had a high fever difficulties breathing her husband seemed to have been spared those symptoms so far as we can understand from the italian health or dorothy's bart certainly they are being taken to a different part of that ship and the woman suffering. symptoms was then put in isolation while those tests were carried out of course there are also other fears the fact that even london is coming into the top 20 cities in which
4:07 pm
the corona virus could become a crisis even though there have been no cases there been cases in france and germany. it's thought that the makeup of the city and the fact that it is such it's hard for people traveling all over the world it makes it more likely to be at grex now in the meantime there are 2 planes that are going out french planes which are going to hand to pick up repatriate european citizens and taking them back to brussels where there will be a coordinated effort with the you. union bodies to try and understand if there is any threat of a risk from anyone who may have been infected while they were there as well meanwhile british authorities here are still trying to get a plane out there to get their british citizens repatriated it's thought that the foreign secretary rice most likely happen on friday as they're still waiting
4:08 pm
for permission from the chinese or thirty's martine and so do we have an idea as to what the strategy is in terms of once you've got your people. tested if they are found to have symptoms bearing in mind of course that you can be asymptomatic and still have contract to the virus is there a plan this is a plan of of one of corinth for instance in the u.k. perhaps. i think there are still those plans that would likely seem to be in place tests are still continuing in scotland where there were potential cases from from last week but the quarantine of course is something which is of greatest treatment possible to try and ascertain to determine whether there is a real risk that they could be infected because of course judging from this so far from the what we know about the cases the rapid spread of this case so far it seems
4:09 pm
to have gone beyond what the sars infection was like in 20022003 of course it hasn't had that same degree of mortality but it is a very real cause for concern and of course the authorities are most likely to be focusing on how to try and contain any outbreak as much as it possibly can all right sonja thank you for that sun you're going correspondent in london let's have a closer look then at this particular outbreak and how it kind of compares to others in the past compare it for instance with seasonal flu of course that happens every year and it kills up to half a 1000000 people around the world every year but that is only a tiny fraction of people who actually get flu that's less than 1 point one percent at the moment this outbreak is less than 2 months old it's a virus that kills around 2 to 3 percent of those infected but experts are saying that that could change this particular strain of corona virus spreads faster than others like sars that it has
4:10 pm
a lower chance of being deadly more than 800 people died in the sars outbreak in 2003 and compare all of that to the spanish flu was devastated the world in 1918 killing 10 percent of all of those who got it that was at least 50000000 people. now we can speak to mark colleagues found his a medical historian joining us live from london thanks for talking to us how would you rate this particular strain of corona virus in comparison to the sars outbreak of the 20022003 indeed murders of 2012. well a person thing to say is a very serious outbreak it's typical to give a definitive answer to that because we've still got there you to come in is still a very confused picture. in that it is not as. fatal as murders which killed 130 percent or you know people who lost their lives but the
4:11 pm
virus as you pointed out people that's the major mortality rates around 2 percent. and it seems to be spreading almost as quickly as sort of different data on that but i would say as an american to sars all at the moment i would say it's not as serious assault but that is changing rapidly right now because despite the. rapid lee increasing number of people who seem to contract it the virus the number of people who died seem to be those who are either elderly infirm or have a preexisting condition i mean would you say that that mitigates against the world health organization for instance declaring it the global emergency. well yes i mean it's very difficult because. why with the global why with the w.h.o. what would be the purpose really of declaring a global emergency so many people are calling for because clearly the virus has spread beyond china's borders i think jack exactly how many countries but we've got
4:12 pm
at least 14 of the countries where the introductions so it fits the definition already or a global health emergency in this national concern but there is a risk of course that when you declare when you increase the alert level you responding people and what we will and from previous epidemic and pandemic outbreaks is that you have 2 problems one is control of the bars the other is controlling the social responses the panic about the virus right absolutely and now the chinese authorities are really at pains it would seem to impress upon not only their own people but the world that they're in charge and that they're being completely transparent about the nature of it and indeed the measures that they're taking to try and contain it how much confidence you have in the chinese authorities and the way they're handling the virus. well i mean i'm not an expert on this i'm not in china i have colleagues who i work with there at city university
4:13 pm
chinese speaking colleagues who say that in the early 'd days of the outbreak in december. there were doctors in harlem who were saying on social media you know were alarmed about this outbreak at the seafood market and they were. essentially criticized closed down by the authorities accused of spreading misinformation fake news if you like we now know that the bar is probably merged even earlier than that blows with the 1st signal and that was the time really to respond quickly i have to say i'm a medical historian you know in my book the pandemic century i can with the series about protecting clue to sars in 2002 then the chinese were also very reluctant to share from asian the differences that this time they have been much quicker to share scientific it so they may have suppressed the initial reports on social media but when it comes to the scientists they very quickly shared
4:14 pm
information with the international community they sequence the virus they publish that information online and because of that we're already in the process of trying to develop vaccines none of that happened during the sars outbreak in 2002 so that's a good thing something the chinese should be applauded 'd for right makani is pam thank you very much indeed for talking to us live from london thank you thank you. we've got a lot more to come in this hour is there a news hour including is mexico prevent central american migrants from reaching the u.s. find out why some are calling the country donald trump's border wall a test of french law could all john be held to account for actions in western uganda. in sports the low rent american who's reached her 1st grand slam final by stunning the world number one.

4:29 pm
united states but there are many more that are under observation a number of states dozens in fact so what we're seeing here in the united states is an abundance of caution and concern about whether or not the united states is adequately prepared so the u.s. president has formed a task force it is made up of not only the health and human services secretary but also in fact infectious disease specialist we also know that president trump has spoken personally with chinese president xi and that there are is cross communication between these specialists in both governments the u.s. saying it's prepared to help if called upon but in the midst of all of this there's also some controversy as of just the last few moments on national television the commerce secretary wilbur ross astonished many in the united states when he suggested that this could in fact be good for creating american jobs the fact that
4:30 pm
this virus exists in china i don't know what he was suggesting specifically but it certainly seemed to almost intimate that this would prevent further outsourcing of american jobs to china because of fear of further outbreak in terms of the corona virus so many people scratching their heads why a member of the trumpet ministration would be saying this in the midst of it trying to project that in fact it is on top of this and in quote close coordination with chinese officials expect that there may be further updates throughout the day but we don't know yes of yet give us a complete it sounds a bit inappropriate doesn't come from a top administration official but tell us about the evacuation of u.s. citizens because the americans were among the. to repatriate citizens from. that's right the state department has been taking a lead on this in terms of trying to get u.s. citizens in the hands of sort of us medical experts not only so they can know and
4:31 pm
have some control over of the care of u.s. citizens but also so that they can in some aspects understand this disease and in this infection just as much as the other world experts that are working on this right now i think the sense here in the united states is this is going to take a collaborative effort and well there has not sort of been in the united states and from urgency declarations so far it seems that there is this awareness that this may be much bigger than people understand and are ready to deal with and so they're trying to get ahead of it as best they can right kimberly thanks for that kimberly white house correspondent in washington. saying in washington u.s. democrats are stepping up their calls for witnesses to testify the impeachment trial of president trump head of a crucial so that the shooter take place on friday the latest day of the hearing

4:33 pm
john bolton trump's former national security advisor reportedly claims in an upcoming book that trump directly tied his hold on security a.j. ukraine to his demand for investigations into joe biden in a letter obtained by al-jazeera the white house warns bolton not to publish his book without deleting classified information on twitter wednesday trump said the book was nasty untrue and all classified democrats want to call bolton as a witness they'll need support from 4 republican senators to make that happen they vote no they're saying this is a sham they're saying we don't want to hear the truth what does that say to america about this body. meanwhile someone else was all but begging for senators to call him to testify. from donor left parness says he was dispatched to ukraine by trump's attorney to stir up dirt useful for trump's reelection parness is under federal indictment for campaign fraud and says he came to the

4:35 pm
this was aboard a caravan of thousands of honduras expected when they entered mexico there you know 2 you know right there are you know began starts from where parents are here with their children. but this kind of crackdown on migrants is what president trump's come to rely on his southern neighbor to do. may not have his will yet the miscarriage become the next best thing where the checkpoints cover the south and president will preserve produce even deploy the new national guard to stop those from whom do this what mona del salvador getting to the u.s. if makes chris become trumps will the question is why this all comes from june 2019 when donald trump basically said that unless we mexicans contain the flow of people from the border he was going to impose a specific tax a fee of up to 10 percent to every single expert in mexico's from mexico that
4:36 pm
turned for it was serious 80 percent of its exports go to the us a lot and so it clamped down and effectively last month preventions on the u.s. border were down 2 thirds from the month before president trumps ultimatum but some argue that it's a short term solution and the root causes need to be addressed that part of the problem is also happening inside central america both countries when the u.s. and its our brother are one of the most unequal countries in the region at this is about time for us to come to terms and try to understand why the mistake elites in these countries are not doing enough to register with resources to their people. rooting out corruption providing opportunity so that central americans don't leave hasn't been president trumps focus it has been part of president lopez obrador says he's pushed for investment in his southern neighbors he's also said that mexico could absorb those forced to flee. we have more than 4000
4:37 pm
jobs in the southern border area available there's shelters medical care and work in our country. but those promises turned out to be largely empty the majority of those in this caravan were quickly deported. or they are now the message at least seems clear if you're fleeing your home and don't expect free passage through mexico john homan al-jazeera mexico city. argentina's your government has begun issuing food cards to low income families and attempt to fight malnutrition the card gives them between $50.00 and $90.00 a month only to buy certain food items the country's in the middle of an economic crisis and is preparing to restructure around a $100000000000.00 worth of debt today is a bow report from the capital one osiris. long lines of people waiting to get government help this is happening in some order only half an hour away from the
