10:03 pm
the virus is over and we've seen many states reopening over the past few weeks notably florida texas georgia i know where the president is on tuesday and where we have seen a spike particularly since the weekend this doctor told members of congress is a concern. if you look at how we've been hit we've been hit badly i make anybody looks at the numbers we've had now over 120000 deaths and we've had 2 and a half 1000000 infections so it's a serious situation right now the next couple of weeks are going to be critical in our ability to address those surgeons that we're seeing in florida in texas in arizona and in other states they're not the only ones that are having difficulty. well we also had from dr fay chief denying that senior figures had been told that they had to slow testing so why is this become a big issue well dr folks you said they're actually going to be doing more testing
10:04 pm
over the next few weeks but flip back a couple of days to the president's gathering his rally in tulsa oklahoma where he said he was so concerned about the numbers of covert cases that he ordered his officials to slow down testing now the white house was asked about that and we were told that the president was only joking certainly that was a lie coming out of the briefing on monday but the president was asked about it before he headed off. and he said this. i don't kid let me tell you let me make it clear we have got the greatest testing program anywhere in the world we've had better than anybody in the world our test for the best in the world and we have the most of them by having more that we find more safe we did want to buy but one in 5000000. think about one the 5 if you look at other
10:05 pm
countries they did 1000000 fewer made in preventive because we did 25 a good way more by double triple quadruple any other gun. and i don't why is set trunk changing to catch arizona. well he is going down to the border wall he's landed in yuma which is very close to the border there if you remember that throughout the campaign he said he was going to build a big beautiful border wall 'd from course to course well the border wall is no 320 kilometers long 200 miles they hit that milestone and donald trump is going down to check it now he would obviously at this stage i'd like to have built a lot more wall but the problem is he doesn't really have control of the posturings that is in the hands of congress and house democrats simply won't give them the billions of dollars he says is needed to build a wall or wall that he told his voters that makes a call would pay for he's also going to hold students for trump event in phoenix in
10:06 pm
arizona the capital city of this state that's interesting that he's picked out his own a because that could well be a key state if there is a close presidential election there are 11 electoral college votes up for grabs there donald trump one arizona last time around by 48 percent of the vote beating hillary clinton by a fairly big margin but in the last 4 of 5 polls that have been conducted in arizona joe biden is beating donald trump and in one case beating him significantly and so the president wants to go down there and rally support and make sure that his supporters can see him he'll be at this event in a mega church in phoenix in arizona they have the organizers are saying they're going to wear a mask the mirror of others of arizona who's a democrat has also asked the president to wait i'm asking elected officials should set an example it's not clear whether or not the president will actually do that
10:07 pm
but this is part of the trump campaign theme they believe that they help when the election last time around by visiting states that hillary clinton by and large ignored are talking about wisconsin you're talking about michigan and you're talking about arizona well expect donald trump to be in a lot more of those states as we come closer to election day on the vendor of the ambition thank you very much indeed. as primary polling day in 6 u.s. states but in one of them there are concerns of voters being unable to cast their ballots fewer than 200 polling stations are available in the southern state of kentucky when there are usually 3000 there especially sparse in areas to home to mostly black people in jefferson county there was only one polling place open 476-7000 residents it's led to a record number of absentee ballot requests. a judge in brazil has ordered president joy above scenario to wear a face mask in public he's repeatedly appeared at busy events and greeted crowds of
10:08 pm
supporters without one the judge said he could be fined if he continues to disobey the ruling of tomorrow has been criticized belittling the risk posed by the corona virus brazil now has 1100000 confirmed cases the 2nd highest in the world and the 2nd highest number of deaths at 51000. let's talk to an america to understand human who's in chile's capital and also areas facemask request to order i should say at from by the john she has significant is that. well that's rather important it just raises again the question of what will bowl so now to do if given a direct order from the courts he has said in the past that he will not have bay the court not even the supreme court if it is shoes what he calls an absurd ruling he might decide that this is absurd he hasn't responded quite yet but remember he's been on a head on collision with the the courts now for quite some time 1st he had asked
10:09 pm
the supreme court to to force the governors to rather to take away from brazilian governors the right to declare lockdowns in their states it's a federal system the court refused to do that saying that it was against the constitution and then he's had more and more and more run ins with the courts especially over investigations involving his own children so this is just the latest and we will be looking very closely to see exactly what happens the next time he comes out in public which could be at any time and you see a chinese president is also coming under fire for a funeral he attended. yes that's right the president of a stampede at this 104 year old uncle but never lino been it out was an archbishop that died. and had a funeral on sunday he was buried but the problem is that 1st of all the protocol
10:10 pm
from the health ministry stipulates very clearly that no more than 5 people can go to a funeral of anyone suspected of having died of cold which mr did not have enough we know he had had cold did but he supposedly according to the doctors he recovered and then died shortly after of pneumonia however the new protocol under this pandemic also says that no more than 20 people can attend any funeral and in this case there were 30 including photographers and live music guitar players so president peña is being accused of having violated his own government's protocol there is a probe that's being. requested by at least one member of congress the health ministry has fired back again did nothing of the kind that he followed all the rules but there were a few count on the video you can see clearly that there were more than 20 people present whether this is a big sin or a little one it sends the message to a lot of people that the president has different rules for himself than the ones that he is asking his own countrymen and women to follow you see in human thank you
