10:07 am
getting protective equipment for doctors was actually ill used instead resources were poured into tourism campaigns and trying to attract more foreign visitors when the outbreak was in its early stages now what we're hearing from doctors in hospitals treating coronavirus patients is they don't have protective gear some of them are using plastic raincoats another thing that people are concerned about is the low rate of testing indonesia has one of the world's lowest rates of coronavirus testing 2nd only to bangladesh in a country that is as populous as indonesia $270000000.00 people it does seem that the virus has spread across this archipelago undetected one concern that people do have is that travel is still continuing across the islands the fear is that people from jakarta when most of the confirmed cases are will travel out to other islands

10:22 am
did not need mechanical ventilation and earlier it was reported that dominic rob who is the foreign secretary and was designated boris johnson's deputy during his time in hospital had not spoken to the prime minister since saturday and that was obviously a very large cause for concern so there's no doubt going to be a huge collective sigh of relief throughout the cabinet and throughout the government this evening and no doubt the prime minister will be keen to get back to work as soon as possible soon as he's fully recovered before he was admitted to hospital he left behind some very clear instructions for what was going to happen in this country for the rollout of mass testing for covert 19 for the provision of personal protective equipment for n.h.s. staff and i have to say neither of those things have really reached their targets yet earlier at the government's chief scientific officer said that the u.k. death toll from corona virus has reached 881 that's the number of deaths recorded
