1:04 pm
the hopes of soon fully reopening mayor bill de blasio has banned all large public gatherings except for black lives matter protests we understand in this moment of history people are talking about the need for historic changes this is a historic moment of change we have to respect that big crowds at any protest you would think would be a perfect recipe for spreading coded 19 however mainstream media would have you believe otherwise they say the protests are not causing the spread of the coronavirus whereas trump rallies they seem to indicate do massive protests in new york city and around the country some doctors warn a spike in coronavirus cases could follow but that didn't really happen but new study suggests that recent black lives matter protesters have not led or the protests themselves have not led to a spike in new cases health officials warned against their rally but president
1:05 pm
trump said we have to move on this is all a little bit odd it's unclear why the virus would seem to have a political bias favoring some big gatherings over others mayor de blasio efforts to sit on both sides of the fence accommodating those afraid of coded 19 by implementing harsh measures on the one hand while letting black lives matter do their thing on the other hand doesn't seem to be working out very well for him his critics argue that the black community which has been disproportionately hit by coded 19 should be discouraged not encouraged to protest they even point to the 1st amendment let me get this right mayor de blasio affairs parades tennis much is banned for public safety may a statistically the group disproportionately affected by the virus is excepted and allowed to congregate and protest you advocate exposing them to increased risk hypocrite how does that make any sense. but if they can proceed so. in other bad
1:06 pm
viruses don't care about social conflicts bill seen the protests are ok but other gatherings are prohibited it sounds like censorship to me these type of speech are assemblies ok but that's kind of is and let's remember that new york city's mayor bill de blasio presents himself as a big supporter of black lives matter even painted the words black lives matter on the street in front trump tower that was a symbolic move that not all the locals were happy with this nearest promoting defeat in a trade he did this because he hates surprise when he did it out of spite but we have a mayor who doesn't care about you and me the african-american community he lets them rot on the street he's done nothing to help but i think it's a joke it's beautiful but he's trying to play both sides to everything it won't pass no reforms or nothing this is like can this distraction oh that is a joke it doesn't help because it doesn't help because our mayor bill de blasio seems to be in a pretty rough spot his attempt to sit in 2 chairs has got
1:07 pm
a lot of other people standing up in anger he will mop and archie new york. you know this they stay outside because the u.s. has seen another record surge in corona virus infections with more than 66000 registered in a single day florida alone so over 15000 new cases on sunday that's the biggest single day increase for any state since the start of the pun time again fucked if florida where a country it's caseload would rank 4th in the world the spike those numbers the disney world theme park in orlando is welcoming visitors schools in florida are also being ordered to reopen next will be sunshine state snow taken the lead in one day record infection rates which was previously set in new york in april a russian emergency doctor working in new york city told us about the 0 precedented scale of the crisis which health workers have been facing. a good light. i know
1:08 pm
that many of my colleagues including those who were here during the 911 attacks and doing the h one n one epidemic were surprised by the situation with the corona virus it was unprecedented even for them honestly in february i thought that it would be an asian thing that would never reach us or that if it did reach us there would be sporadic outbreaks but that it wouldn't really be our problem as well towards the end of february started to understand that something bad was happening there wasn't any testing but more and more cases were appearing clearly in a city like new york situation wasn't going to end well in terms of mass transmission as we didn't have preventive measures in place in new york we had about a 1000 intensive care beds per 8000000 people and when in march the number of seriously ill patients began increasing rapidly we realized we wouldn't have enough beds there were also only enough ventilators in the hospital to meet our needs for 2 weeks and if we hadn't received help even before we reached the peak we wouldn't

have been able to cope with the situation we started the pandemic with a shortage of tests at that point about 70 percent of tests in new york were coming back positive only people who almost certainly had the virus were being tested by sharon angle. of course 50 or more that you take this but not so much strain on the healthcare system and a large number of registered coded 1000 cases and deaths all the statistics making it look worse than it is or has the country really been hit particularly hard as i do i've heard of them as supporting them so i've been discussing this with friends and colleagues and no one can really understand it our health care system is not capable of dealing with big shocks the virus itself according to all indications has a case fatality rate of about one percent so it shouldn't be a big deal one person out of $100.00 will die and a few more out of $100.00 will be badly ill so how can such a rich medically advanced country like. united states be brought to its knees by
1:10 pm
such a disease we still don't quite understand what to do next we are stuck in quarantine and we are afraid to lift it and rightly so because we're aware that our health care system which is able to cure some unimaginable illnesses is not capable of dealing with this epidemic. well let's keep on the covert theme because almost a 100 american troops or 3 bases on the japanese island of okinawa have tested positive 'd for corona virus over the past number of days it's the prefectures low infection rate really soaring 60 percent and inflamed longstanding local resentment at the large u.s. military contingent the bases we believe are now locked on island leaders are demanding answers from the pentagon about what it plans to do next. as the citizens of the all can have a perfect your work together to prevent infection it is extremely regrettable that a large number of u.s. military personnel were infected in
1:11 pm
a short period of time yet should be pointed out that the figures were disclosed only after repeated requests from the authorities there are approximately 30000 american military personnel stationed in okinawa rigorous contact tracing has so far kept the number of known civilian infections 150 the governor is now urging the pentagon to increase preventive measures and to stop sending new personnel to okinawa. the u.s. military did inform the okinawa authorities of the exact numbers but insisted they should not be publicly released the u.s. defense secretary said in march that the pentagon would stop publishing precise details of covert infections within the military to avoid revealing weaknesses to america's adversaries oaken our resident activist cimi aggy believes the us should have let the public know were. extremely important.
