12:02 pm
with this virus the world health organization has dispatched a team including the man who led the body's response to the abode of virus and of course this now means we're getting independent analysis on the ground in china which is very very important indeed i think this week is perhaps going to be a pivotal one show because you know we've had this sort of start a good return to work by millions of people on the mainland after that extended lunar new year holiday they've been returning to work in all the big cities and towns and of course what the authorities want to avoid is you know large groups of people because out of calls makes it much easier for the virus to be transmitted so they've been appealing to employers to allow sort of flexible working where they can also on the mainland today we've been hearing about an unusual video that's been posted online and this was really an interview with the mother of the doctor

12:05 pm
the infections now which here involve. might be might be on the crew members that are around 1000 crewmembers on board of the ship and if this numbers prove to be among the crew members then we may hear of more and more numbers during the coming days we have seen several dozens of medical workers and also from self defense forces people in. military uniform and other wearing masks medical masks and surgical mosques they were boarding the ship and we're expecting that maybe today a late night or maybe 2 or they will go if they're going to transmit their patients to other places around yokohama. talk you some people are also that there is some of formation that since defense forces they may use the ship that they have charted to it's a medical ship that is on the stand by now in port and some of the patients

humility written off by some as a party just for those with short memories shin fein confounded the conventional wisdom that was in the build up to the election people saying oh this is young people who don't remember the troubles in northern ireland and i think that we see that's not the case it's only the much older voters who still could be the policy to go past links to the republican paramilitary group the ira linger as evidenced by a group of jubilant shin fein supporters singing a rebel song at the count center in dublin that you're. right. but the party has evolved i think one thing to pull the brake lever things one was gerry adams party pretty good on mary lou mcdonald is in no way associated with troubles in the north and dots you know traditionally terms of marketing communication cuts were pretty well it's created an ideological headache for the establishment parties the current irish leader the t. shirt leo veronica afine gail accept that the results mean talks with sinn fein are

appreciate your time very much so are you as surprised at the parasite when it is industry experts seem to be. people who asked me that a lot if i was surprised but actually i wasn't i sort of expected it was a matter of number of wars i was expecting maybe more than 4 or 5 or 6 all of the still i'm happy. to say i was pretty i was ready ok all right when you talk about all of the all the nominations and the winds are you surprised that there weren't nominations for the actors in the film all i would in i actually i was only. expecting to get anything for performance because it was not just one single cast they have. 10
12:27 pm
actors and actresses in the movie and then it was hard to get a you know major performance awards for 10 actors all of it so i was really. thinking about it why do you think. the fact that you know clearly people think it's a good movie what do you think it was about this movie that resonated with so many people. you know repeatedly slapped his films about half cent have lots which is a universal issue for all of the word and he also said that that's a major reason how this film became so relatable and understandable for global audiences and i agree with that but not only parasite something to think about class issues and maybe law class and capitalism are also getting for. you know as you say the notoriously by east academy awards in terms of ways and
12:28 pm
gender also made people to think about how history of racism mentioned there are then gender discrimination is slowly becoming the thing of the past if not. i think parasite as a movie itself made many records from you know for the you know side of korea but i think it's more important that parasite as phenomenon made an incredible turning point for the history of diversity i think that that factor should be bigger thing that we all koreans should be proud of all right we'll see if it if it opened doors they've had a few moments at the oscars that you hope open doors it doesn't always but let's hope maybe this is one of those moments moloch you can thank you very much joining us from so we appreciate it. al jazeera was also up for an oscar for best documentary short subject just missed out. robber and all spoke to the nominees for
