and also to live through the phase where we became one. and. for years clubs like they are kind and watergate have cemented berlin's reputation as. techno capital but when the coronavirus pandemic struck last march the party was suddenly over. it was a nightmare for d.j.'s like alien who make their living travelling around the world and bringing people together to dance this summer she spent a lot of time traveling on berlin's waterways trying to process the new normal. it was awful it was absolutely horrible because i was ready to go on to a full tour. so it was a big shock i must admit that i cried a lot. of go by him. but instead of sinking into depression she took action in june she released her 9th studio album an hour and began streaming live d.j.

9:01 am
a triumph of democracy over oppression but he warns against populism and extremism . i'm michael okwu thanks for joining us u.s. president donald trump has spoken out for the 1st time from the hospital where he's being treated for covert 19 he would least a video message on twitter adding that the coming days will be the real test of his fight against the krona virus earlier the president stopped or also said he was doing well but followup question shifted to focus on the timing of trump's infection and diagnosis the world doing his best to reassure the united states i came here was in feeling so well i feel much better now working hard all the way back and i have to be back. because we still have to make america great again we've
9:02 am
. but we still have steps to go. back i think i'll be back soon. finishing up the campaign the way we started we are things happening that look like we're miracles but admitted the coming days will be crucial so i just want to tell you they're starting to feel good. i don't know over the next few days i guess that's the real test so will be seeing what happens over the next couple of days. earlier on saturday the president's medical team had also given in update explaining their decision to transfer him to a military hospital and reported yesterday consultation with this group i recommended we bring the president up to walter reed the precautionary measure measure. to provide state of the art monitoring and any care that he may need. just 72 hours into the diagnosis now the 1st week in
9:03 am
a particular day 7 to 10 of the most critical in determining the likely course of this illness but that clarification caused confusion 72 hours into the diagnosis would mean he was confirmed infected on wednesday. trump only announced that he and the 1st lady had contracted covert 19 early on friday the president's doctor sean conley later issued a statement correcting himself. following an event at the white house rose garden last week a number of prominent republicans have also tested positive. including 2 senators from the judiciary committee who are due to consider trump's new nomination for the supreme court. vote trump is reportedly on the mend his chief of staff says the next 2 days will be critical in the president's fight against covert 19. joining us now is our correspondent in washington greetings carolina we just heard
9:04 am
the president say he's doing well did he also defend his decision to continue containing without a mask. well in this video of the 2nd one he released from the hospital his 70 trying to kill the room or as we heard yesterday saying that his health condition was quite serious we don't know though if this is going to change anything on his position towards the measures to stop the infections in the states like wearing a mask or keeping keeping a social distance we have to consider that the mask has almost become a political symbol in this country trump has treaties ice the mask and even made fun of joe biden for example during the presidential debate because he always wears a mask is he now going to change that position openly perhaps after having been hospitalized for several days due to his 1000 infection so we don't know
9:05 am
as you know more people in the president's inner circle have tested positive in recent days how certain are we that that rose garden event was in fact a super spreader moment within the president's team. this is not being called here that ceremony last week in the white house was the place where several people got infected but we do know that at least 6 people including 2 public and senators with 10 at that event. are being tested have been tested positive for it and 19 so it is highly likely that this might have been the event where they contracted the infection also we have seen in the images that we got that they are not wearing a mask and they are not keeping social distancing so this could be the spreader event yes how are these infections affecting the trump campaign team
9:06 am
a month now from the presidential election. the impact on the campaign is huge specially for republicans to cancel his campaign events for this week and in the video he published he says he thinks he is coming back very soon and that he wants to continue with his campaign to make america great again as for now he has stopped the campaign and all the events by this campaign by the way said the kind of a joe biden will get tested more frequently and will now continue in person campaign his results of the tests are going to be disclosed every day. carolyn a few more in washington force thank you so much carolina. since donald trump announced his diagnosis on twitter late on thursday misinformation has been
9:07 am
spreading on social media about the president some are even questioning if trump is actually ill who can we trust when it comes to the president's health reporter. joins me now to talk more about this where do we begin to lay i mean to tell us about the theories that are spreading on line you know 1st of all there is of course no evidence that trump was lying about his diagnosis is now being treated in hospital for covert 19 and as with any conspiracy theory it would have taken a lot of people to be in on it if it were if if their theories with what truth it is fair to question a statement that comes from donald trump washington post at their latest how they said he had made 20000 false or misleading claims in 122-0000. might get to $25.00 by the end of by the end of october. and so when this news broke on wednesday social media really exploded with with theories on both extremes
9:08 am
of the political spectrum to be honest on the on the left you have the documentary filmmaker michael moore for example he suggests that trump was faking this to somehow has postponed the election this was saying that he was faking it to get out of more doing more television debates of the chaotic debate earlier in the week obvious again said it was a distraction from his tax scandal on the far right conspiracy theorists there suggest that this was part of his grand plan to take down the washington elite somehow the details of that are a bit murky we're not going to get into those details but there are plenty of theories so given the on line theories that are written raising up all over the place and the fact that throughout history administrations have been shall we say careful about disclosing all medical details about the president can we. i believe the information that's coming out of the white house well yes and no take the statement yesterday from his chief from his personal physician he did not on
9:09 am
the question about oxygen and whether the president at any time had been on oxygen he didn't oncet those questions clearly the white house the white house has also not been forthcoming when it comes to the timeline you know that hope picks the aide who 1st had symptoms she had symptoms for 24 hours before the news broke and when the news of her positive test broke that did not come from the white house that came from bloomberg news we also know that the president went to a fundraising event in new jersey off he knew that hope pics had tested positive and as you said in the past this white house especially has not been very forthcoming when it comes to the disclosing medical records there was a incidents a few years back of a letter written by a chump's forma personal physician saying that he was that good health turned out that had been dictated by trump himself and there was also an unplanned hospital
9:10 am
visit to the same hospital in november last year to which we still have no explanation was it so important that we get accurate information. the health of the u.s. president is very important it's the biggest his the leader of the biggest economy in the world the markets were rattled this this week when news of his coded broke if he is incapacitated say if he isn't oxygen if he is on a respirator that's a matter of national security especially if you imagine how some decision making process is happening in this white house sometimes the president will make decisions and his people below him might not even know about them so you you could see a breakdown of communication. it's also of course an issue for people's health it was a. this week saying that donald trump himself was the biggest the biggest source of misinformation about the corona virus in the us and
9:11 am
a lot of people gets most if not all of the news from social media so we're dealing really here with differing realities differing versions of the story the physician yesterday said his. condition was improving the chief of staff said that his condition was very concerning and the president himself said we would see the severity of the illness in the next few days so who do you believe well whoever you believe i have a feeling that this discussion will continue long after donald trump gets out of the hospital. thank you so much for that let's turn now to some of the other stories making news around the world at this hour hundreds of demonstrators have taken to the streets of chile's capital santiago to protest against inequality and police brutality the demonstration was called in response to a video which appeared to show a police officer pushing
