overcome the outbreak when the u.s. president donald trump or sounded a note of optimism saying there's lies at the end of the tunnel but this came right after a top health official warned americans to prepare for the hardest and saddest week of their lives more than 9000 people have died so far over 1200 on saturday alone and in japan prime minister shinzo are based preparing to declare a state of emergency as infections surge in major cities from london jonah how begins our coverage 2 weeks into the u.k.'s locked down and deserted city scenes are testament to a new way of life most people staying home for as long as science and the government decide they must also on lockdown in windsor castle her residence outside london the queen 93 years old reminded britain's that this crisis too would
10:03 am
pass we should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure better days will return we'll be with our friends again we will be with our families again we will meet again but the government is worried about isolation for tea and a minority of people embracing the warm spring weather to picnic and sunbathe in the parks on promenades and beaches the more people follow the rules then the faster we will all be through it so i say this to this small minority of people who are breaking the rules or pushing the boundaries you're risking your own life and the lives of others. and you're making it harder for. banning all this the ability to go outside to exercise in public as the health secretary has said he might have to do would be intolerable to many particularly those who live in cramped apartments with no outside space only compounding the effect isolation has on
10:04 am
physical and mental health but the argument goes that if people aren't going to change their behavior themselves well then they might have to be forced to in order to save lives best friends in meal and gabriel a keeping in touch at a safe distance through the fence is still our best friend and we're very good friends so i think that's one of the hardest things about it so weird that i didn't really respond to full. and we've just come for a walk once a day but this is really difficult as far as i know like this is what the government has recommended you you know outside and you get as much sun and fresh air is you can obviously stay away from people so i think we're doing the social distancing quite well with the police exercising emergency powers to move people on it's expected that britain will get a pretty good idea where the lockdown efforts have helped reduce the peak when it comes in the next week or so but even then
10:05 am
a way out of this crisis involving eventual widespread community testing and contact tracing to manage a 2nd wave is many weeks away yet joan a whole al-jazeera number lawrence lane joins us now from london lawrence let's talk about boris johnson showery so far he's been trying to be well still prime minister and a patient is getting better how does this latest announcement impact both him and how the country is run. well in terms of how the country is run you see the problem in the u.k. is that there's no actual position of deputy prime minister as there is other places and so they have to designate someone to be in charge and sensitive foreign secretary dominic run off and he'll be in charge of the. government committee meeting at a quarter past 9 our time this morning and it will carry on but still the government's trying to maintain
10:06 am
a source of pretense really that johnson still in charge the minister who's doing the media rounds right at the moment scuse me this morning says that johnson's going to be kept updated while in the hospital and he's still continuing to lead the government even at the same time downing street saying that johnson will have to be in the hospital as long as is necessary and so clearly both of those things can't really be true at the same time and part of the problem for johnson 10 days eating is that he didn't rest he continued to try to work while he had the virus which starts a phase really the worst thing that you could do because he should have been in bed and the worry i think they've got now is going to not saying that it's the merchant yet mission is that if his breathing is still really bad and he's still got a temperature they've got to stop the continuum only because he gets into intensive care that it's about $5050.00 whether you can survive or not so so there's though they've got to stop him from trying to be prime minister at least for the time
10:07 am
that's going to be an interesting one also i know that the u.k. health secretary said it's not imminent but how much concern is there among people among the markets about a further lock down or tight a lock down. well there's some obvious 2 different things about that we're now into the 3rd and supposedly final week of the existing. now clearly it's going to have to carry on because the peak isn't going to arrive here until probably this weekend coming at the earliest and if any any other countries anything to go by then it's going to carry on earth couple more weeks of that so the reality is a lot to much finish up to 3 weeks is obviously going to carry on anyway for several more weeks there's a separate question there about whether the lockdown has to be extended because as you saw in that report there are still people who are refusing to do what the government says you should which is to go to texas and then go back home again and that's obviously that's not sunbathing in the park all day isn't the same i don't
10:08 am
think they get about exercise i think you'll be disastrous but they've got to get people to stop by. all right good stuff there from lawrence lee thanks for that. and there's a glimmer of hope in europe the death and infection rates in some hotspots appears to be slowing the number of people who died in italy was at its lowest in more than 2 weeks on sunday new cases there are also on a downward trend daily deaths in spain have dropped for 3 consecutive days in france 41 severely ill coronavirus patients have been transferred from paris to the northwestern region of brittany trying to ease pressure on the cap for hospitals more than 500 patients have been moved to other areas nearly 8000 people have died from the disease in the country ireland's prime minister is returning to work as a part time doctor there wiranto trained as a physician before entering politics has rejoined the medical register and will
