2:35 pm
a arbitrary dissolution. so you have one party rule horn sir, and appears to be clinging on to power. what chance do you have or does the opposition have of restoring democracy to cambodia? it is sir the popular will because sir d a popular discontent isa growing, especially among the usa. those who are under $36.00 a year older. they have not seen any leader, but mr. hutton, san. so the same man in power for 16 for 36 years. it's a bit too long. it is why the vast majority of the cambodian people are want to. busy do see new leaders, new face, and a more democratic regime, but we're able to express this discontent when the rule is so absolute. how do you
2:36 pm
see this situation changing? we hope that the international community, including the european union, including germany, really pushes for free and fair election in cambodia because the international community donor countries, are such as a germany or do have a leverage here to our pusher, mr. hood saying that to organize a rear election so that the people can express themselves in a free way. have you seen any signal so far that countries like germany are using that influence to bring about change in cambodia? yes, sir. we have, i seen a german de german ambassador in cambodia visiting the stem, so car, when he was in detention and he's still no free. he cannot leave

2:38 pm
and we happily continue to abide by the same strategy distracted g. d, come and such a g is to push for free and fair election. so that we can have a democratic changer in a peaceful route in a non violent manner. but now we have to consider some practical tactical approaches. so how can we or push ya to have a free and fair election? these isa, just a minor differences that we may have, but within the open, you shouldn't be continued to share the same goal at the same strategy. you tried to go to toronto and border in 2019, but couldn't you was stopped in thailand or do you have plans to go back? yes. so when did i get to isa a knee or opportunity that i d a will you send be those who are now in exile,

2:40 pm
are actually infected from the on the hamsters. only the little balls pet shop seems to have been affected. but authorities now want to cold thousands of hamsters, rabbits, engine chillers across hong kong. they've also asked people who bought pads from little balls in december to give them back. so they can be put down the decision has spot outrage a petition to stop the coal gathered more than $20000.00 signatures on the 1st day . some experts say the calling is a sensible response, but say the fear of infection in homes was overblown. millions of people around the world have been infected by sales calls to are millions of people around the world have pets, and they have been no cases are proven of pets transmitting infection to other humans are the same theoretical risk is there, but it just,
2:41 pm
it just doesn't happen, hong kong pursues a so called it's 0 cove, it's strategy that keeps cases low. but as left many wondering at what price and the devil's phoebe kong has more on the reaction in hong kong. the must calling has about criticism and outreach among animal welfare group and patch, own it urgent that government to speak for alternative such score and team. critics are also concerned that such a measure what even prompt, more people to offend in the past is by criticism. government and i says and some local experts back that the sessions acuity and them also they say it's nearly impossible to isolate and upset every single ham. so one by one while preventing cross infection among the animals. and jeremy for more is deputy meola just professor ben calling here from the school of public health at the university of hong kong professor, calling. what is the risk of animal to human transmission and vice versa of over
2:42 pm
$1000.00. we think that the risk of a human getting infected from the pat it's very, very low. it may not be 0, but it's very, very low. on the other hand, as a number of documented occasions when humans have passed, in fact, it's like when humans are post infection onto their pets. and in this case is not clear which way the transmission occurred, whether it's from hamster to human human to hamster. but we do know the hamsters have been infected. so her, the pet owners be what is that their pets could transmit the corona about us to them? well, i don't think so. i think it's one of the many different risks that we face in most parts of the way we know on the corn is around cove. it is around we could get infected in many different places. and now we can, we can where we a little bit about past, but i don't think it would be a major risk. so given hong kong order to car some, 2000 hamsters and other small animals, would you say that the territory has gone too far in implementing the 0 corporate
2:43 pm
policy? well, i think the government and now looking at every possible risk of cobra getting in because they're very, very keen on getting case numbers down to 0 and keeping them as ever. and that means that if as presumed to be at risk of infection in the in bound, hamsters in the future, then we need to be aware of that risk and try to minimize the or mitigate it. but i think it is one of the limitations of a 0 cobit approach. and now that we have fractions available, i think we can look at maybe relaxing some policies. but in hong kong, the, the government's still very, very strict about target. progressive calling from the school of public health at the university of hong kong. thank you so much for joining us today. and that's it . so today as our mothers lawn, our website, we'll see you tomorrow, but with
