a dozen new fires sicily and put us in italy. the us centers for disease control and prevention has announced a new 60 day moratorium on rental evictions in areas with high levels of covered 19 infections. the older covers about 90 percent of the us population. rosalind jordan joins us live now from washington. d. c. thanks for joining us, rosalind. this must come as welcome news for millions of wrenches across the country. well, certainly those who say that the moratorium never should have expired this past weekend are rejoicing. but 60 days isn't a lot of time. considering that already $45000000000.00 had been set aside in legislation earlier this year by the incoming biden administration. that money for the most part, has not reached the landlord whose tenants have not been able to pay their rent
2:23 am
because of the economic impact caused by the pandemic. and so 60 days isn't really a lot of time to try to get all of that money dispersed because of bureaucratic road, blogs and procedures. but certainly something that the u. s. president joe biden is, is hoping is that local governments and state governments will actually take advantage of this time to try to provide more relief. not just to the people who have been unable to pay their rent in their apartments or in their homes, but also to the landlords who have mortgages to pay and who themselves are facing, precarious financial impact because they haven't been getting their rent checks. so this is basically a bit of breathing room, but really the only way to fix this is for congress to come back into session and to work out a way to legalize the process of moratoriums so that there's more time to help people on both sides of this housing equation actually get through the pandemic.
2:24 am
yes, you mentioned that it's not very long at all. i mean, it already takes us up to october 3rd. and as you mentioned on the other side of the coin, we have landlords that are wanting this rent money way too. from here over the next 60 days. can it all get sorted in time by october? 3rd? probably not. that's really not a lot of time when you consider that this money was actually appropriated by congress and signed back by the president several months ago. so there's already been at least $90.00 to $120.00 days where this money largely has not been distributed. this put it this way, some 15000000 people are basically covered by this new by the extended moratorium. but 3000000 people could lose their homes this month. if there is no actual resolution. and if their landlords don't pull back the petitions to
2:25 am
already evict people from their homes, it's really become a bureaucratic complication. and certainly there's not, there's not a whole lot that the buying administration can do to compel people on the local level to do one thing or another. they're legally very prescribed in what they can do. basically, all the president could do on tuesday was to strongly encourage local officials and state officials to speed up the process. but again, when you're talking about federal disbursements, you're talking about a lot of regulations and how these things are handled. who can be the middle men or middle women as it were, to help distribute the funds. and they're all of these regulatory requirements that people have to meet. so 60 days, it's sounds like a good idea, but it just isn't going to be enough time. plenty of moving parts to the sun. thank
2:26 am
you for the update. rosalind jordan, they live for us in washington. they say us president joe biden has cold on new york's governor to resign after an independent investigation found he sexually harassed at least 11 women. the allegations against andrew cuomo include unwelcome physical contact and suggestive comments. investigators say there was a clear pattern of abusive behavior. the independent investigation found the governor cuomo sexually arrest multiple women, many of whom were young women, by engaging and, and one is groping. kisses, hugging and by making inappropriate comment that kwan i denied the investigation findings and is resisting calls for his resignation. i never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances. i am 63 years old. i have lived my entire adult life in public view. that is just
2:27 am
not who i am and that's not who i have ever been. it's been a one years since a huge explosion, devastated 11 on capital, killing more than 200 people and injuring it many more. nearly 300000 were left homeless. families of the victims is still demanding answers as xena harder reports from bay roche. the gutted silos at bay roots port still stand as a symbol of a tragedy. i feel what the building behind us collapse and 4 people were killed. i was strong to the ground unconscious. we will never forget that explosion. it began with a fire at warehouse 12. it's believe to have blown up the ammonium nitrate that was unsafely, stored with flavor bill materials. the neighborhoods
2:28 am
were destroyed, more than 200 people were killed on august 4, 2020. we saw her thinker is there her running shoes? we didn't expect or imagined that he will be at the point, we wrote wolf saw her that her sister, jessica worked at one of the roots hospitals. many were badly damaged in the explosion. all the hospital teens ran to the patient and had to move them to the secured area which turned into a battlefield. we had a few minutes and then because after a few minutes came the game, the patience which were wounded and that no one has yet been held to account. families of the victims are up against the political and security establishment, accused of hiding behind immunity that defeats the very purpose of the very sense of the floor. and that does not reflect on
2:29 am
a dat dish or ability judiciary ability to conduct effective investigation and to insure accounts our ability for the abuses that committed. it's still not known what caused the initial fire. what is also not known as if the ammonium nitrate was intended for bay root? the ship that carried 2750 tons of the chemical made an unscheduled stop here in late 2013. the cargo was offloaded after a death dispute, but it's also not clear if most of the stockpile was in the warehouse, when the explosion happened throughout the years, top officials, military and security officers knew about the dangerous chemicals and did nothing about it. human rights watch says they also miss characterize the danger posed in communications with the judiciary. we found that the emissions and actions of lebanese government and security officials constituted
2:30 am
a violation of the right to life under international law. and there appears to have been an attempt to disguise the true identity of the owners of the ammonium nitrate on the ship and why the ship came to lebanon in the 1st place. a year on bay root is still a broken city. yet to recover from one of the largest non nuclear explosions in history, then there is either beta and as live and unprepared to mock the 1st anniversary. all that explosion, dinah will be taking a look at how it happened in a special program. they were search for answers that's here on al jazeera, on wednesday at 2330 g and i this is al jazeera and these are the top stories this our.
