virus but in the u.k. the death toll is supposed to 10000 and this prime minister bars johnson recovers after being released from hospital nurses and doctors say his government is failing to provide enough protective gear let's begin with china sara clark joins us live from hong kong so is this the unwelcome proof of a 2nd wave sarah. well certainly a rise in numbers as you mentioned the highest we've seen in 6 weeks 18108 new cases i should say reported from china's national health commission that's up from 99 the previous day but i should give you some background about where these particular cases have come from we've got most of these cases are reported in the north east of china in a province that borders russia and these are chinese citizens who are coming back in to china after being living or living abroad but certainly in russia but they're they describe as important cases but they are chinese nationals and they put in
10:03 am
place a number of tough measures in this particular province known as the heilongjiang province this is a home to about 70000 people but they've got staying home orders are people being told to stay indoors they've actually sealed off the border to russia and that particular province by road but planes have still been able to be allowed back in or gatherings have been banned but train services have stopped and all health checks are now being put in place from those people coming back into china from russia but as we discussed before the numbers have been on a downward trend over some time and the numbers have been low when you compare them to other countries elsewhere the big questions about the calculations and the accuracy of some of these figures that have been coming out of china that we had the world health organization its prior praise china's handling of this outbreak and says it's hired china's speed of detecting the crime of virus outbreak but we've got a number of other countries that question the transparency from china about the infectiousness of the disease as well as the numbers in the figures and the total
10:04 am
tally we have currently we've got the death toll from china since the coronavirus outbreak began back in january we got any 3343 which is certainly a low number when you compare it to other countries in the lights of the u.s. and europe and we've also got news of the auto industry in nearby south korea the latest to catch corona fever tell us what's happening. we're seeing more ongoing impacts on the economic front across asia but in particular on monday we have the likes of south korea a key which is one of the key come out of factories in that country it's now told its union and certainly its employees it employs about 53000 people it's told that they might have to consider suspending 3 of their carbon effect when plants not closing but simply considering suspending them for now and that's a response to the crown a virus outbreak and its impact on the exports from south korea to the likes of
10:05 am
asia for us the us and europe and the unions to get to accept that but certainly the the share is a kid shares they fill when the markets opened on monday but south korea's exports not to the rest the world we've got the 1st month they've done that's been released from one of the major export nations and it shows that south korea's exports are tumbling we've got the exports for the 1st 10 days have fallen by 18.6 percent compared to the same period last year we also have the latest figures coming out of south korea $25.00 new cases of the creative arts in fiction and 3 d.s. and that's the 2nd time we've seen a fall below 30 since the calculations began from so much sarah clarke from hong kong. the world's largest oil producers have agreed to cut the biggest output cut in history prices rose on the news but gains were limited because of doubts the move will be enough to stabilize energy markets ravaged by coronavirus shala ballasts reports. on pickett called his abandoned in vienna in
10:06 am
stede the group and its allies meet virtually remotely agreeing to cut global oil production by the largest amount in history 10000000 barrels a day that's about a 10 percent reduction. oil producing nations agreed to the cut last week mexico wouldn't sign refusing to drop its output so our lawyer president trump weighed in the united states in discussions with mexico saudi arabia russia. dealing with opec nations. we are trying to get mexico as the expression goes over the barrel trump then offered to reduce us production further to make up for mexico conscious that loyal prices could be terminal for america's shell industry. he tweeted sunday the big oil deal with opec plus is done this will save hundreds of thousands of energy jobs in the united states
10:07 am
there are $10000000.00 jobs associated with this shell industry in the united states and that's so huge constituency for president trump president trump doesn't need any more job losses in the last 3 weeks alone we've seen 17000000 jobs lost because of the. global demand for oil has evaporated by around 30 percent to zuko that 19 planes are grounded streets deserted and just as the virus forced entire nations into hibernation saudi arabia exacerbated the imbalance ramping up its oil output in a bid to northcott's picture rival russia out of the market the glass seemed to us benchmark west texas intermediate promising from $63.00 a barrel in january to $20.00 a barrel in late march and more than 2 decades lower we see this as really a monumental achievement i mean if you told us we're going to half ago that saudi
10:08 am
arabia russia you know it states we're going to come together to forge and agreements to cut 10000000 barrels a day and that actually was more for the market i think most people would believe that. but pulling prices back to profitability may still they need months off even with the biggest oil cut in history there's still an oversupply or the numbers are i popping the decrease it's perhaps not enough and when the outlines of the deal was announced on thursday after an initial spike prices actually fell produces banking that of countries stick to the deal or oil will be back as a wanted commodity in 2021 shallow ballasts 0. a 100 is vice president of crude for obvious media price reporting agency for the energy industry joins us live from tokyo good to have you with us or so 1st of all do you think this climb in prices is going to last will it continue
10:09 am
if we consider that oil that oil inventories are going to keep pricing because the opec cuts are smaller than you know just a 3rd of the actual drop in demand that we've seen as a result of the pandemic actually we should expect prices to resume their drop quite swiftly into the 2nd quarter tensional e sending the price of dog down to $10.00 per barrel or even lower which is the price at which the u.s. production and the shale producers texas and new mexico are actually forced to cut down output because it's no longer profitable to keep pumping out those prices because it's below their operating costs right there's a lot in your answer to unpack let me start with will this at the very least then put a floor under the the price crash and given what you said is that $10.00
10:10 am
a barrel now what we're looking at instead of the previous forecasts which they well they could even go into a minus. it's likely that the brant price braintree presenting the benchmark for crisis in europe and somehow the middle east that's well connected to dubai price is that that will not fall last march but the price of dog duty i asked the benchmark for u.s. production we checked thanks to the economics of the shale patch in the us will have to grow up significantly to trigger those production costs because otherwise oil is going to keep flowing and we in the absence of any significant recovery in demand storage may be full by the end of may so before then we have to see that deep contraction in prices to make about the book total number that a lot of us you can put
10:11 am
a number on it for me what what is the floor right now that we're looking at well a potentially $10.00 per barrel for w.t.r. all right will this deal hole together a lot of people were dragged to it kind of kicking and screaming one of coronavirus shares ocean to life for months 6 months as you know some of the ready worst case scenarios predict just a month ago in the previous opec meeting russia walked away because it didn't want to cut $200.00 or 300000 barrels per day now russia has committed to 10 times as march 2 and a half 1000000 barrels per day there is a lot of skepticism that the russian government might unify all the individual independent private producers to cap their production to achieve those $2500000.00 barrels per day so there's a lot of there are lots of questions about whether that oil will actually be taken
10:12 am
out of the market and whether compliance will even reach the 50 percent that was reached in the nischelle stages or the previous opec cut or i thank you very much a 100 or about a host of. thank you so u.k. prime minister barak johnson says he owes his life to the doctors and nurses who treated him in intensive care for corona virus but health workers say their lives are being put at risk because johnson's government is failing to provide them with enough protective gear and the hayward reports. britain's prime minister boris johnson left hospital to continue his recovery at his country residence he was discharged after a week 3 nights of which he spent in intensive care i have today left hospital after a week in which the n.h.s. has saved my life no question it's hard to find words to express my day he paid tribute to those who looked after him. i've seen the personal courage not
10:13 am
just of the doctors the nurses but of everyone the cleaners the cooks the health care workers of every description physios radiograph was pharmacists who kept coming to work kept putting themselves in harm's way kept risking this deadly virus the number of people who died in hospitals after being infected with the coronavirus in the u.k. has now surpassed more than 10000 the u.k. government says record amounts of personal protection equipment is in the system but staff treating the sick say there are still vulnerable i'm sorry if ministers feel that they have supplied adequate p.p. to n.h.s. staff but that's simply not the case of what we are experiencing on the ground and it just don't want to be seen as heroes we're not martyrs and we don't want to die in the line of duty we just want to be protected so that we can do our job across europe people are grappling with this crisis the number of deaths in spain rose
10:14 am
again after a few days of dropping slightly no wonder then that there's no letup in efforts to try to stop the spread of the virus and corona virus is stalking frances care homes killing some of its residents care workers here face a grim task trying to reassure the living while dealing with the deaths. at the paris funeral homes and private funeral homes are completely overwhelmed so it means that some corpses stay 34 days in the bed. on the bedroom floor. this weekend should have been one of coming together to many families and friends tomorrow easter instead many of europe's capitals are empty the landmarks deserted the churches closed the pope delivered his easter mass in a much scaled down service at the vatican $100000.00 people usually gather in st peter's square to listen to the remains the epicenter of europe's coronavirus
