netanyahu is where the protest before so called black flag activists have waged a years long campaign against what they call his anti democratic rule but in the last 2 weeks the protests have changed and grown as israelis buckling under a 2nd wave of coronavirus turn their anger on the government. netanyahu has admitted to reopening the economy too quickly allowing gatherings of too many people others point to the government's failure to expand the system of testing and tracing is the 1st wave leaving it ill equipped to stop the 2nd author and journalist roden bergman has investigated that decision making he says the health ministry went against expert advice you need to know as soon as possible if their purse is not there. that person immediately after he is they the fight is suspicion so is the suspect so if if you do not been sharing of infection he goes on and on if you are not able to cut it the government itself said it needed
11:03 am
a 48 hour turnaround from suspected case to test results even now it's taking $6.00 to $8.00 days the concern now is that it's simply too late in terms of testing to catch up with the sheer scale of this 2nd wave israel's missed opportunity on testing and tracing is now being seen as part of a wider political failure to tackle the pandemic under pressure the prime minister has been announcing measures only to announce them from a $1750000000.00 package of cash handouts 1st universal now means tested too in order to close restaurants postponed within hours to weekend closures of beaches and pools reversed within days the one constant is insistence on avoiding a 2nd full lockdown because. i've requested each ministries plan for a safe exit from the current virus restrictions meaning that if we straighten the coven reach the goals that we see it for the determine number of cases per day that we can work with over time in the coronavirus routine. but the head spinning policy
11:04 am
shifts have undermined belief in a prime minister also on trial in 3 separate corruption cases one survey this month put public trust in him at just 29 percent and the problem that. there's really this back and that it's not creating trust and trust is groucho. in order to move ahead because it's a long term situation where they're talking about trustees both thrust of the public and trust of experts just weeks ago netanyahu had squashed the 1st wave of coded 19 and neutralized his most serious political rival benny gantz inside an emergency coalition now he's fighting to beat down a resurgent virus and restore his diminishing political capital are a force at al-jazeera television. u.s. president ronald trump has warned that the corona virus outbreak is likely to get worse before it gets better it's a mark departure from the optimistic picture he's projected so far even as cases

continue to rise in many of the u.s. states mike hanna has more from washington d.c. in the past president himself as america's cheerleader making rosy predictions about the course of the pandemic that were often at odds with the facts but this was a more subdued president than on previous occasions it will probably unfortunately get worse before it gets better something i don't like saying about things but that's the way it is and a complete reversal on the use of mosques something that in the 1st few months of the pandemic the president often derided at one stage even expressing support for anti mosque protests in a number of states this too it seems a thing of the past i have no problem with the masks i view it this way anything that potentially can help and that certainly can potentially help is a good thing i have no problem i carry it i wear it you saw me wearing it a number of times and i'll continue if there were some familiar claims that the
11:06 am
u.s. is leading the world in testing and that it's mortality rate is lower than anywhere both assertions declared false by most health experts and little comment about a startling report from the centers for disease control it says the official figure of some $3600000.00 cases of coronavirus in the u.s. is dramatically less than what it now is to mates could be as many as 38000000 cases. it's not clear whether the president's new embrace of reality rests in recognition not because such as these or whether he's seeking to reverse what are politically damaging polling figures about the public's view of the way he's handled the crisis. al-jazeera washington a.t.o. peres says it's reached its yearly filling target for the grander nestles down after weeks of heavy rain that says the government's been holding virtual meetings

11:08 am
does have legitimate concerns i mean that egypt relies on the nile for $0.90 of its fresh water needs and the largest share of the river runs through each 3 different territory and what we have has had in egypt is a situation where they have a significant gap between the amounts of water they produce and the amount of water they can shoot. and with a rapidly growing population of over 100000000. to this problem only getting worse ethiopia also has strong claims because it's the source of the blue nile the largest of the river gnarls tributaries if you appeal was never included in a colonial era agreement between egypt and sudan the gives the lion's share of water to egypt there are many finally balance calculations including internal political ones that reply you know if you don't really need the other big you have i'd be out madhav uncomment power in 2018 he wants to secure his position and you
11:09 am
know be reelected in future elections in europe yeah in egypt you have president sisi with you know an economy that has had been struggling but also he needs to ensure that he has the continued backing of the military establishment country which of course has an important role in the. economy. in late june ethiopia rejected a u.n. security council meeting requested by egypt saying the council should not be involved at all ethiopia's u.n. ambassador said the dispute should be solved at a regional level african union talks hosted by science africa failed to food you agree much earlier that months in february the u.s. and the world bank mediated what it hoped would be a road map on how to proceed with final technical and legal issues which concerned egypt in particular but he v.o.p. did not sign the final document ethiopia always said that it would have preferred agreement before it begins to fill the reservoir but if that wasn't possible it
11:10 am
would go ahead anyway it just potential huge security implications for the entire region ethiopia accuses egypt of repeatedly dragging its feet over the issue of filling the reservoir something it says egypt knew would be inevitable one day charles stratford. somebody as president has announced a dusk till dawn curfew in an effort to contain the spread of covert 19 emmerson one guy was says it all began on wednesday and it will be enforced by security forces critics say the measure is aimed at stopping anti-government protests planned for next week zimbabwe has reported just over 1700 infections and 26 deaths or how taxes joining us live from the capital. how do as far as i can tell they population in zimbabwe is over 14000000 so these numbers do seem somewhat small what's the public reaction to the new lockdown measures.
11:11 am
well in harare to get to the city center one has to go through a number of checkpoints at the checkpoints are manned by the police and soldiers when you get to the checkpoint if you're walking you on the bus you're writing your bicycle you're in a car you stop the police or the soldiers that ask you where are you going if you say you're going to work they need to see a letter from your company then they decide whether your work is deemed as an essential service or not it is not then you are sent back home and this is happening to many other parts of the country as well as the measures introduced means that businesses have to open from 8 am until 3 pm in the afternoon they must close people must make sure they are home by 6 pm local time as well because of the curfew anyone who is not formally employed is not allowed to be out of their homes only if they need to guard and get food and go and get medical services so if it's race of mixed feelings here in zimbabwe those who are concerned about the current virus are democrats saying that maybe this is
