Automatic TRANSCRIPT

For months. Now we've been told that odor people are the generation most likely to be killed by the corona virus. The statistics back it up as the number of deaths worldwide passes ten thousand but the World Health Organization is concerned that this fat has made many young people complacent about the threat posed by covered nineteen the. Who's director Ted? Russ Adam? Gaby yeses delivered this stock warning today. I have a message for young people. You're not invincible. This virus could put you in hospital for weeks or even kill you. Even if you don't get sick the choices you make about where you go could be the difference between life and death for someone else. I'm grateful that so many young people are spreading the word and not the virus as I keep saying. Solidarity is the key to the fitting covered. Nine hundred solidarity may well be the key but there are concerns that not everyone is complying with advice to avoid social interaction and self quarantine. I'll star world affairs correspondent Paul Adams why the UK has now decided to adopt strict measures implemented by other nations in Europe. Despite seeing early days ago that they were unnecessary. So as you know the British government has been somewhat criticized for not adopting some of the mandate tree closures a public spaces that some other European and other governments have gone in for and finally we are saying the government doing precisely that saying that cafes bars and restaurants should close as of today and I will be. According to the prime minister a degree of enforcement used to make sure that that happens. Here's what he had to say. We want you to stay. That's how we can protect our emit chess and save lives. You know how difficult this is how it seems to go against the freedom loving instincts of the of the British People. But we will get through this. We will get through it together and we will beat this virus. So that's the British prime minister. Boris Johnson what about the situation. Globally where we are seeing a situation in which the world continues essentially to shot down a few days ago. The talk was all about how travel restrictions were coming in to to put into play. We're now seeing countries shutting down themselves in Bavaria Germany's second-largest state will be on lockdown. From Saturday people only allowed to go out to shop to work to visit the doctor. Other countries are doing similar things. The death toll in Europe continues to rise. Dramatically Italy has recorded more than six hundred new fatalities. That brings their total. Ought to over four thousand dead Spain. Another two hundred ten dead. And in another corona virus slighted country Iran. Another one hundred forty nine recorded cases so we are seeing the dreaded high spikes in a lot of countries even as the country which saw the the source of this. China believes that for the time being. It's in the clear now. It's interesting as you look around the world. You'd just see this playing out in so many different ways I was looking at the Middle East Just a few minutes ago Syria not a single confirmed case. Hard to believe that that could really be the case but we're hearing reports of suspected patients being held in the departure lounge at Damascus airport with not without enough blankets from Iraq. We're hearing about a curfew with bands and visits to Holy Shrines Qatar. An interesting case now easing the exit permit. Regulations to allow migrant workers hundreds of thousands of whom right there presumably to go home and in Libya the people want to do walls carry on while while corona virus afflicts the entire planet will in Libya the spokesman for General Half Tars Libyan National Army saying that the their forces might consider suspending their offensive against the capital Tripoli. So as you look around the world you see this affecting every walk of life. The the beaches in Brazil being closed the cafes and restaurants in Algeria are being closed. Everything is shutting down Paul Adams the United States is also closing. Its borders on Saturday to all but essential travel in California. The Governor Gavin NEWSOM has ordered forty million citizens to stay at home only essential trips will be allowed and anyone who ignore the restrictions will be fined but president trump says that's unlikely to be replicated across the nation essentially. You've done that in California. You've done that in New York hotbeds as probably the two hottest of them. All in terms of hot spots I don't think so because you go out to the Mid West you go out to other locations and they're watching television but they don't have the same problems they don't have buy in by any means the same problem. So what's life like in California? I asked our correspondent in Los Angeles Surf. Along with these restrictions came in last night after people had finished work so they went home last night as usual and these restrictions have now come into place there are state guidelines that have been issued and some businesses are still open so grocery stores gas stations pharmacies and banks there. Lopin so people will be going to work to staff those but people are being asked to stay at home if possible is called. Certainly here where I am in Los Angeles County. Safer at home so people are able to go out. They've been very clear. Not Martial Law. You're not going to be arrested if you do. Go out onto the streets but people who else to only go out if they need to and if they do to stay at least six feet apart and I think people are taking these new restrictions very seriously as you can imagine. And last night we heard from the state Governor Gavin newsom. And he said that they're now expecting half of Californians will become infected by the corona virus. So if you think about the state of California and there's many forty million people talking about twenty million people so I think people are taking these restrictions very seriously and California is a state of course all was associated with the movie business so it must be a Lotta people are at home twiddling their thumbs. A lot of people were in freelance basis and data rates. And there's been a huge amount of concern so people will have been listening to the press conference given by President Trump very closely indeed sophie long in California. Well we've heard from the United States and the United Kingdom but what about Africa the infection rate across the remains relatively low but the World Health Organization is warning local people to prepare for the worst. Many governments have already introduced quarantine measures. But how do you stop a contagious disease? From spreading in informal settlements were millions of people live in close quarters often without fresh water and with limited access to health care what our correspondent Sylvia Shabby find out in one of Africa's largest slums in the Kenyon capitol Nairobi. A few miles from Nairobi. City Center lies the sprawling slum of Kibera hundreds of thousands of people are thought to leave here in houses tightly packed together the struggling for food for money for space. So this this is where I'm leaving. Seven People Joseph by Ching is one of Kibera residents. His house like most others here is small. It has a stove a few chairs and somewhere to sleep. He knows how devastating a corona virus outbreak would be in Kibera official guidance. As keep your distance. Stay away from others south isolate if you show symptoms but in a one room house with no windows and the toilet shared with twenty five neighbors following. That advice is hard. Why did this is my Whitey's in this community? People remain affected. It is easy for me to affected them. Doing South at space is the only thing that's curse here. Water is too people are being told to wash their hands with clean water and so two prevents the spread of the virus a mining. The market proudly shows me. He is doing weight with Beckett's collecting free water from leaking pipes for Joseph's wife Janet. Washing hands frequently is a luxury my house. I must get their compounds. His in traffic got what always money nowadays. Who you can't beat somebody. You can't just get donald trump washing your hands on on while things have changed for. Janet for the most part. It's still business as usual an elderly woman. Failing fish chats to her customers Amanda carrying a baby by his fresh tomatoes in the market men on motorbikes. Wait for customers. I think in terms of self-isolation is probably GONNA be literally impossible to achieve because pathologist Dr Columbia grew up in Kibera. His situation needs to be taken more seriously. Unfortunately at this particular moment they he's almost complete lack of serious awareness People have heard about it because it's all over the media but unfortunately it still sounding like a foreign thing. It has looks really hit home yet. The message out there. It does seem people don't seem to understand that this is actually something that can explode. Schools have now closed. People are being told to avoid gathering even in places of worship more and more restrictions have been put in place in Kenya and the rest of Africa to stop the spread of Koruna virus. The people in the slum are hoping it's enough Sylvia Shabby as the world tries to cope with the pandemic. It's easy to feel anxious or downhearted. So we want to bring you some happier stories showing how people are coming together in tough times and that brings us to Millie Ericsson. She's just celebrated her one hundredth birthday in isolation at her nursing home in Massachusetts in the US but a ban on visitors means her family couldn't see her in person so they gathered outside the care home to sing. Happy Birthday Tunes spooked. Emily.
