trial for refusing to allow a vote with rescued migrants to dog. has been a massive surge in the number of corona virus infections across china more than 15000 new cases were confirmed across the country on wednesday alone that's up from 1600 just the day before 254 more deaths have also been announced and that brings the total to almost $1400.00 memories of these news cases have been in who bay province where it all began the world health organization says reports of the outbreak stabilizing in china must be treated with extreme caution and it's advising everyone to avoid speculation we need to focus on the task the task is to contain.
virus to detect cases to treat the cases if we keep doing those things yes we may see a drop in the number of cases but i think it's way too early to try and predict the beginning the middle or the end of this epidemic right now and in vietnam $10000.00 people from a community just outside of annoy of been placed under 20 day poor and $105.00 people there or infected and that brought the total number of cases in vietnam to 15 are we can say to katrina you now who is live for us in beijing and katrina 1st of all this is a massive increase in the number of cases that have been documented we're talking about 15000 that it was just 1300 the day before what's behind it. well we heard from the government today saying that they see this week as pivotal in fighting this coronaviruses seems that they are changing things up
a bit and one of the things that they are shifting is the way they're actually diagnosing these corona virus patients now we know that there were many in who were waiting to be diagnosed many with mild symptoms and people were generally relying on this one form of testing kit sort of acid testing kit to to know exactly whether they had corona virus now that seems to be change and doctors now have been given more free rein they've been given more discretion essentially and allowed to not only rely on this one testing kit but use other ways to to diagnose and confirm that these patients do have over 1000 or the coronavirus using things like c.t. scans lung x. rays and things like that because there had been so many questions raised about the validity of these testing kits a lot of people were saying that they were getting false negatives from this a lot of others were saying also that we took perhaps 4 to 5 times of using this testing kit to get something positive and others were saying that also it was difficult to use so that was causing
a lot of frustration on the ground and it seems that this has been this decision to allow doctors more methods of testing has provided quite a bit of relief and it's also something that the international community have been urging for for some weeks now and katrina so is this new methodology this new freedom to test for corona virus is this being rolled out across the country i mean if so should we be expecting a far greater number of infections being reported countrywide. so far we know that it's only been ruled out at the moment. but we can expect that there will be more in who they province but we know that there will be more cases like this we're not sure if we're going to see that kind of jump over the next few days but we do know that in hawaii province there have been a lot of cases that exam for example people who have been staying at home who had mild symptoms and who haven't had access to
a hospital bed because there simply been a shortage or they haven't had access to a testing kit or they're afraid to go out so i think this one this new flexibility is going to give doctors more access to more patients maybe patients are going to be more willing to come out now actually get tested and we're going to see a faster turnaround as well of some of these results possibly or i had katrina you live in beijing thank you and a cruise ship that was turned away by 4 asian governments because of fears of the virus has finally arrived in cambodia we can go live to a correspondent. in veal the port where they. could wait so the cambodians quite a brave decision then the rise in the philippines turning away this this cruise ship or the cambodians allowing it. yes and the decision by the cambodian government to allow it to dock in this city of
san looked very much welcomed of course by the more than 2000 people on board given that it's been almost 2 weeks that they have been at sea but the ship has not docked yet it is still an kid off the coast of the city and the expectation is that it will tie up at this port at some stage on friday before then there are certain processes that need to be undertaken one of course is the issuing of visas to those people so they can enter cambodia and then get on chartered flights organized by the owner of the cruise ship to the eventual home destination and then there of course is the issue of medical testing we have been told that there are no confirmed coronavirus cases on the ship but the cambodian government now saying that there are 20 people on board who are not well now that's still a very small number of people again when you consider there are more than 2000 people on board the ship but their symptoms are enough to warrant further investigation so blood samples have been taken from those 20 people they are being
flown by military helicopter from this port to the capital phnom penh where they will undergo further testing then comes the question if any of those samples or more than one test positive for covert 19 will the cambodia north already still allow the ship to travel that short distance and tie up at this court where the government is saying they don't know they don't have the answer to that question just yet belle await the results of those tests before making that decision if those tests are negative then as i say the ship it is planned anyway will tie up at this port some time on friday and. wayne given the huge number i think it's only one confirmed cases being reported in cambodia how were paired there therefore the 3rd is there if there is a large number of infected people on board this this ship do they have the kind of the quarantine facilities that are necessary.
well so far there's only been you're right one case that was in this city actually the man tested positive for the virus he was hospitalized and his now being cleared and released cambodia is still a developing country of course it has not a great health care system it has to be said so there would be some concern about any major outbreak of the virus in this country then again the world health organization has been full of praise for the government's response to this outbreak from the beginning really the government has been very keen to stress its close relationship with china it has not followed other countries leads by shutting down its borders by refusing entry to flights from mainland china into cambodia or putting travel restrictions on chinese nationals entering this country those things are still in place in fact we had the prime minister hun sen in beijing just last week meeting with chinese president xi jinping and the president of china thanked
him for cambodia's response to this and that it's been echoed by w.h.o. as well saying that they do not call for the borders to be closed or for trade to be stopped they believe those things should continue in situations like this but with increased chick's and again following the decision by the cambodian government to allow this ship to come here the w.h.o. was full of praise for that decision all right wayne thanks for that wayne hay reporting from sihanoukville cambodia. and staying in china now beijing is sacked its chief on hong kong and macau affairs jang jamming is i'm a senior official to be removed from his pay since the mass anti-government protests started in the whole goal and that was last june he's to be replaced by the deputy chairman of beijing's top political advisor and body the months long protests were against a controversial extradition law that has now been scrapped. turkey is sending more reinforcers through its observation posts in northern syria president ed all
one has warned that he'll strike back if syrian forces in italy province attack turkish troops syria's ally russia accuses ankara of making the situation worse in the last rebel held region by having its military on the ground. and there's been a confrontation between american troops and government supporters in northeast syria. has lara in that incident from istanbul. a russian patrol in north east syria near punish lee after u.s. troops in the area opened fire killing one civilian. the u.s. issued a statement saying they came under attack and had to open fire the incident is now under investigation. that attack came on the same day turkey's president issued a warning to the syrian government and its russian allies. one of them of the
president was up to her and has given damascus and till the end of february to pull out beyond turkish observation posts it. says if talks with russia failed to stop syrian troops targeting turkish forces will respond harshly she was very strong the color we are determined to remove the syrian regime to beyond the boundaries of the thought she agreement that is behind our observation post by the end of february we will do whatever is necessary without hesitation without wavering on land and by air. damascus has dismissed the comments saying turkey is out of touch with reality but despite his anger and frustration president is still hoping he would be able to narrow differences with russian president vladimir putin the 2 signed agreements into $1018.00 which allowed for save lives and respect of the rebels
movements the deals also prevent a syrian president bashar assad from launching a military campaign to take over the last stronghold of the rebels. as turkish russian relations remain strained the u.s. has stepped in during a meeting with turkish officials u.s. syria ovoid james jeffrey delivered a sharp rebuke of russia iran and the syrian government which the us blamed for the escalation as tension turkey sending more troops into it live adding more out opposed to the 12 already established after an agreement with russia and iran 2 years ago. the syrian government has been increasing its offensive in the north taking over crucial highways and towns from rebels but is can only do this with a close support of russia's military and it's up to the russians and to the turks
to decide what happens in syria next. is the board all right let's talk to our correspondents him because they all knew who is in northern syria very close to the turkish border and said them say that these turkish outposts the 12 of them agreed as part of the a stunner agreement or 2018 to observe syrian force at tipitina's but some people would argue that a star is now dead given the fairly aggressive forward advances being made by the syrian government and indeed attacks on turkish forces. well yes that's exactly the mission of the observation post their court by their stunning rayman and not only. observing the violations by the syrian government but also the opposition but it's not all of the syrian turkish government that has moved through observation posts inside of the escalation zone in that martin but
also the russians so it's a joint cooperation it's a joint effort as a girl enters of sochi agreement and turkey has 12 homes or very soon post but since the syrian government started to violate the borders of the the escalation zone mainly beginning from last august and pushed its advance towards north from south turkey began to start to in frame force its military observation post may need the ones that are left on their d. and 5 home way which is. the area which is basically under the syrian government's control right now so after after those those posts were encircled by the syrian government and there were some attacks mainly targeting the turkish cornwall last week turkey is starting to establish 4 more observation posts mainly around serach of area to secure its soldiers and military posts that's why it's
beginning from the 1st week of february we are hearing that at these $2600.00 vehicles arrived from turkey to inside live those called mors they brought the tanks armored vehicles military personnel carriers plus recent to turkey deployed hope it's serious in serach of a rare in its posts around there for ports as i said in surat kabera and those horses were basically used by the by the bye then. during yesterday's offensive by the rebels against the syrian government forces current the turkish ses to the syrian government should go back to its previous place which is required by the us agreement otherwise the turks will chase the syrian army members until they they go back to that line so current the ground this tense as both the syrian government
forces and the church see in force they are military positions and turkey continues to send reinforcements today where cinema. in northern syria very close to the turkish border thank you very much still to come here at al-jazeera 15 people are dead dozens of others and missing after a boat carrying ranger refugees capsizes in the bay of bengal. hello again and welcome back we're here cross parts of borneo heavy rain is expected over the next few days take a look at the forecast map as we go here towards friday you can see those tops really bring some very heavy rain across much of southwestern borneo that's going
