a downward spiral for the last few months already and this is of course another low point the closure of the use and consulate came quite as a surprise to the chinese side and to also observers and this retaliation measure of course is what the chinese side had announced it is quite reciprocal the. consulate in 2 has about the same meaning for the u.s. as the consulate and used for china it is also a political message because this consulate was covering the bet and other minority regions as part of their consulate district and this of course is an intended message i think until the elections in the u.s. we are either going to see a further deterioration or some kind of a stable bad relationship there are lots of issues the south china sea where china

9:09 am
. the scenario goes from just not change in the regular day of the hospital and to the worst case scenario which will be when we have to stop all the activity that is not urgent in order to for all the professionals to assist patients which is what happened at the end of march another area of concern is staffing public health facilities around 1000 extra staff are needed in the region to accurately track chains of infection. right now dubie fernandez and his 20 colleagues are responsible for more than a 1000000 residents. we are not enough people to do the contact tracing properly not only the contact tracing that more or less we can test you know the contents of the person that in that case that it's on firm but also to the proper money touring of the cases and to see if this outbreak even though it's a small if it's expanding despite repeated promises from the cuttle on regional
9:10 am
government that more people will be hired to work in public health not much has happened yet experts agree that tracing contacts is crucial for slowing the spread of the virus especially with young people who may have no symptoms just a few weeks ago both alone us regional authorities haven't they criticize the poor crisis management and the cup it's a moderate now they find themselves in this sense of attention and more and more critics say that the crisis management here is anything but idea. barkeeper alex and others in the industry have one major worry that infection rates will rise so much that the region will have to be placed under total lockdown again that could mean not just the end of this year's summer season but the closure of their business for good. let's get some more details on this now we're joined from the spanish resort city of marbury and now by the reporter who put that piece together
9:11 am
for us young philip schultz good day to young philip oh what have been the reactions from british tourists aware you are to the new 2 week quarantine announced back home. well you know in the region of god there are some of the most popular tourist destinations for british tourists you can see some of the hotels in the background insects and from what i can see they remain quite relaxed of course they're not very happy that they have to be in quarantine when they fly back home but they say that they don't really understand the messages and they quite safe here this vanished government says they respect the decision of the british government's about they say that they have everything under control here of course they are in a very difficult situation at the moment and they don't want to seem irresponsible especially regarding the obvious risks on the other hand we have the middle of the summer season and spain heavily depends on tourism 3000000 people are employed in
9:12 am
the tourism sector and the british i one of the most important groups this is a key sector isn't it for spain and now it's looking at the prospect of more regional lockdowns including possibly for barcelona how's that expected to weigh on the country's already battered economy yes indeed the situation in barcelona is very sudden there are lots of new infections but there are restrictions there including the restrictions now that have been imposed over the weekend i quite moderate nightclubs have to close there's a curfew and bars midnight curfew but i don't think to be honest that we will see and you already coat and i've spoken to a lot of business owners in barcelona and about places in spain and also to a lot of residents and they say that spain simply wouldn't survive this economic. young if there is not going to be a lockdown what is spain going to do to curb to rein in what looks like
9:13 am
a spike in new infections. well that has been a lot of talk recently about its new app that is supposed to trace infections has been tested on the small day island of like a mad and a lot of spending outs us them so when it will be available 'd don't know that it's an extortion this hasn't happened so far but i think the even bigger up problem spain is. also all around the country that completely overwhelmed by the problem they don't have a not enough employees a lot of people that are infected with the virus say that they have never been contacted by for a ts and there's a new study that says that there should be 5000 people employed and offices to trace the infections just as a comparison 8 to 9 times as many people doing this jump in germany ok maybe spain
9:14 am
will be redirecting us some resources to turn that around for us and. thanks very much thank you. take a look at some of the other developments in the pandemic right now the overall number of confirmed cases worldwide will hit a stop 16000000 over the weekend that according to figures from john hopkins university. is evacuating 80000 terse from the central city of denying after 4 people there tested positive they are the 1st new infections in that country in 99 days and china has recorded its highest daily rise and april with 57 locally transmitted cases of hunk on wall and saw another 261 cases over the weekend and in the austrian lakeside resort of song both dong a new cluster of more than 50 infections among young workers in the tourism sector is causing some concerns. well here in germany dozens of migrant workers have
9:15 am
become infected with. a large cucumber farm in the very nearly 500 people are under quarantine right now side it's the latest in a string of outbreaks to hit germany's food production industry. all 480 farm employees in mumming have been told they aren't allowed to leave the premises security guards are monitoring the corn period imposed after more than 170 of the seasonal workers tested positive for the corona virus there were 7 new cases on friday and blanket testing revealed that the vegetable farm was the focus of the infections the district administrator moved to reassure the public. just like the high number of positive tests we believe that it's currently limited to a closed group of people in c. . there is the seasonal workers from hungary romania bulgaria and ukraine bus together from the accommodation to the cucumber crops ready for
9:16 am
harvesting it sets hygiene standards weren't strictly followed the variant opposition parties see the state government is partly to blame there have been a lack of special measures in both slaughterhouses and on farms. however the various health minister praised the quick reaction of the authorities and called on the public to go for testing. for all so important in my opinion that the population here also gets tested so that if they want to travel they can then travel accordingly with a certified negative test which i like the taste of and patient i think. throughout the outbreak the district of think of england is on the verge of exceeding the infection rates of 15 every 100000 people on a regional knockdown would be imposed is still unclear. well one of the keys to
9:17 am
stopping the spread of the chronic virus is of course early detection and isolation of carriers of the disease but before symptoms appear there's no way of knowing so far someone's inspected other than their lab tests but research is now underway here in germany to see whether canines to be used to a dental fido's with over 19. can these canines help detect could have 19. or 20 german army program in to achieve the service dogs working with dedicated trainers and the head over university of veterinary medicine cannot sniff out the virus itself but they are able to detect biochemical changes in body fluids caused by the virus in tests the dogs were successful in detecting those changes 94 percent of the time. they were trained with a rewards based system. the dogs get treats if they identify saliva affected by the virus and no treats for sniffing out healthy saliva. promising as these initial
9:18 am
results are there's still a long way to go. of a tree here. i want to make clear here that the next steps like for example being able to tell the virus apart from a normal influenza or to identify an active carrier are all questions that still need to be answered so we've room need more months to be able to offer any clear results you know to open a full and even this is over this isn't. over germany isn't the only country hoping to use dogs to fight the virus. a french veterinary team is training dogs to sniff out covert patients from the smell of their sweat sniffer dogs trained to find explosives or drugs have been used to detect diseases like cancer and diabetes . the hope is that these canine helpers can be especially useful in countries with limited access to lobby for testing. does it not we have some business now and
9:19 am
budget airline ryanair is reporting 185000000 euros in losses for the 1st quarter the dublin based carrier was forced to ground almost all of its fleet from march to june as the krona virus brought global travel to a standstill executives say their biggest fear a 2nd wave in may the airline announced it would be cutting $3000.00 jobs. in times of crisis gold proves to be a safe haven and that is once again proving to be the case the prices hit an all time high with buyers and even markets forking out about $2000.00 for one ounce of the precious metal. in this gold dealer in beijing business has been booming for weeks july sales were up some 30 percent in the previous month whether as jewelry or bob's demand for the precious metal just keeps on climbing the gold price is now

surpassed the previous record set in the aftermath of the global financial crisis 9 years ago since the beginning of the year gold has climbed 28 percent on monday asian traders were paying 1900 $44.00 an ounce analysts reckon the price will climb above 2000 right now the perfect storm is brewing to send investors running to the safe haven of gold the uncertain business outlook thanks to the coronavirus pandemic the growing tension between world powers china and the usa and central banks which are printing money like mandarin to help the american economy the fed may decide on negative interest at its meeting this week that will increase pressure on the already weak dollar and may well push the gold price even higher chelsea glenny is with us for more from frankfurt to day to chelsea a lot behind gold shine right now where is this rally having.
9:21 am
well investors and analysts think it could continue to rise from here obviously it's already had a pretty spectacular increase this year but one of the main reasons why that's been happening is because this massive stimulus that central banks are putting in place so they're pumping trillions of dollars into the economy and what that really could potentially do down the line is create inflation so gold is very popular whenever there's a lot of economic uncertainty when people aren't so sure about the outlook that's obviously happening now but it's also very popular among investors who are trying to sort of. prevent themselves from from experiencing inflation in their portfolios so it's also really hedge against inflation if central banks continue to print money to pour money into the economy we could see inflation rise higher so
9:22 am
that does sort of indicate a longer term rise for the poles and. there's a real paradox though isn't there as central banks prove more money pumped into the economy pandemic lockdowns like receding in spain still mean the jobs can't be created so where is the trouble sector going to head on this kind of pressure we're seeing today ryanair catastrophic numbers there. it's a really difficult situation for the travel sector over the past couple of weeks there's been a lot of talk about the reopening of borders the restart of travel people airlines getting their fleet back in the air but we're just seeing a lot more a lot more. restrictions being put in place so spain. travelers to spain from the u.k. are not going to have to be quarantined again we're seeing more and more restrictions more testing more quarantine rules so that really creates a lot of questions about what what the long term recovery is going to be like in
