Scotland's leader vows to push for second independence vote
"Party has today set out how it plans to secure a new referendum on Scottish independence from the United Kingdom. The Scottish National Party, or SMP, says it will try to hold a referendum if it went the majority in this year's elections to the Scottish parliament. The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has made clear his opposition to another vote. The last referendum was in 2014 when 55% voted no to independence. Paul Hutchins, political editor of Scotland's Daily Record newspaper, will the SNP leader Nicholas Sturgeon be able to secure that second referendum. If you look at what they are plan ears, it is to get a joint agreement with the U. K government on a referendum on scorching depends, which is what happened back in 2000 and 14. But this time around Tory government in London has decided that it will not grant what's known as the section 30 order, which is effectively a joint agreement, so that's put the S and P in a difficult position, so they come up with a plan B, which is to organize their own referendum at the Scottish parliament. The big issue. There is whether or not that is legal. And while there's no doubt that they will probably go down that road is going to end up in the courts, so the question of whether there will be a referendum is probably will be decided by judges. Would unionist parties in Scotland go along with the referendum that hadn't been sanctioned by Westminster? Well, that is the key issue here. I think there's a big distinction to be drawn between whether Scotch Parliament can legally organize a referendum on the legitimacy of such a process. So even if the Scottish Parliament did push ahead with our and judges To say that it was legal. I think that be question Marks Reese because first is this court's conservatives who are pro union. They've already said they would boy court such a referendum on so you could be left for the situation where you have a referendum, but one side is just not taking part. And then you end up with the result could be C 18 90% fever of independence on internationally just looks quite amateurish. So I think that ultimately what you need is a process that is agreed by both sides on as we speak to snow and agreement on that looks quite far off. In the last independence referendum you mentioned there was a pretty large margin 10% in favor of Scott, the remaining part of the United Kingdom has that shifted dramatically in the last six years. There's no doubt that in the last couple of years their husband a shift in favor of independence. I think that around the last 20 opinion polls on independence surely lead for independence. So I said quite dramatic turnaround. From 2014, and I think there's a few reasons for that. One is Brexit as you well know, People school rejected Brexit when there was a referendum on that subject. There's also no doubt that the conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson, is hugely unpopular. In Scotland, and I think that is partly responsible for the shift in public opinion. There's also a perception that Nicolas Sturgeon has handled the pandemic better and Boris Johnson has. I think it's a combination of a wussy factors as resulted in the increase in independence with the last couple years. And yet, I suppose in the back of people's minds is is the worry that actually, if membership of the European Union was driving things, there's no guarantee is there a tool that Scotland could quickly rejoined the U. Well, Brexit is the degree imponderable off this to beat. On the one hand, there's no doubt that is driving increased support for independence, but it does re some issues for the pro independence state. After was a referendum there's MP would liken depends got to rejoin the U. So you have the issue of? Well, how long would that teak and then even if an independent school and did join the European Union? What would that mean for things like Borders on immigration and cite the United Kingdom of what would it mean in terms of trade between Scotland and the rest of the Yuki? So I think that you would see a very different referendum. If we lose to tea, please, with a different set of questions raised. That was poor Hussian of Scotland's Daily record newspaper.

I'll be speaking to leaders and advocates from the mental health organizations all across our country and We are going to be talking about resources and tools that will make available to them. They need help. And it's a big problem when you take something where it was. The most successful country in the world still is the whole world is shutdown. Think of it. We're down to Numbers that are incredible As I said yesterday I think it's one hundred eighty two countries right now. One hundred and eighty two countries are under attack by the by the score jr by this virus but as we wage medical war on the virus. We're also speeding economic relief to our people. It's incredible we just had a meeting. That was absolutely incredible with the banks. I spoke with leaders in the banking and finance industry about our efforts to help American workers and employers as of today small business has has processed more than seventy billion dollars in guaranteed loans and will provide much needed relief for nearly a quarter of a million businesses already. So we are going to be Providing tremendous amounts of money to the small businesses of our country have been absolutely clobbered and they'll be keeping open and they'll be paying their employees and they'll be all set to go. We're going to have a rocket upward. I WanNa thank David Solomon. Ceo of Goldman Sachs. Brian Moynihan CEO of Bank of America Gordon Smith Co Presidency O of J. P.

Otherwise we'll wait ahead of schedule. The paycheck protection program has been incredible so based on the incredible success of the program. I'm announcing that I'll be asking Congress to provide an additional two hundred and fifty billion dollars for the paycheck protection which will help keep Americans employed to facilitate a quick and full recovery We're doing very well. We're looking very bipartisan. A lot of people want to do it and the the plan is amazing. You know they're processing hundreds of thousands of loans and this is the big banks that are doing it. The community banks But the biggest banks right now in our country are doing it and they're they're doing it for a lot of reasons one of his. WanNa help people the W. H. O. That's World Health Organization receives vast amounts of money from the United States and We pay for a majority of biggest portion of their money and they Actually criticized and disagreed with my travel ban. At the time I did it and they were wrong. They've been wrong about a lot of things and a lot of information early and they didn't want to very seemed to be very China centric and we have to look into that so we're going to look into it and we pay for give a majority of the money that they get and it's much more than the fifty fifty eight million dollars a small portion of what they've gotten over the years sometimes they get much more than that sometimes. It's programs that they're doing and and it's much bigger numbers and if the programs are good that's great far as we're concerned but we want to look into World Health Organization because they really are They called it wrong. They call it wrong really. They missed the call. They could have called it months earlier. They would have known and they should've known and they probably did know so. We'll be looking into that very carefully. And we're going to put a hold on money spent to the W. H. O. We're GONNA put a very powerful hold on it and we're GONNA see it's a great thing if it works but when they call every shot wrong. That's no good. We're in the midst of a great national struggle. One that requires the shared sacrifice of all Americans in recent weeks. It's been remarkable to see so many companies and organizations and individuals like the banks that I just told you about biggest banks in the world. They stepped up to help small business their big business. Well business well business someday be the big business. But the small businesses fifty percent of our economic strength.

"Two nights stupid of of course moly not aware that his comments would would public to initially. He said he stood by every word. Then under pressure he reversed himself and he released a statement saying the following here. Let me be clear. I do not think the Captain Brett Curzio the outgoing Commander USA's Theodore Roosevelt is not even stupid. I think always believed him to be the opposite. I believe precisely because he is not not even stupid that he sent this his alarming email with the intention of getting into the public domain in an effort to draw public attention to the situation on his ship. I apologize for any confusion. This choice of words may have caused. You could see there in that statement though. Wolf sticking by ineffective allegation that event this to get out there in the public regardless. If you have your acting Navy secretary I calling a outgoing commander of a of a carrier naive or stupid and then having to say. I don't believe he's never stupid. I mean that's really not a position anybody wanted to D- at here. And certainly not the defense secretary especially as you know Jim. The captain was so widely respected. He had a truly distinguished career. The crew loved him aboard the Theodore. Roosevelt are there any second thoughts as far as you're hearing on perhaps decision to relieve him of his command? Any second thoughts on that. Well you know Wolf. I've talked to a lot of people in the military in the last several days about this situation. Why respect for Crozier? No no question wide respect for his motivation here in protecting his crew. The concern was not protecting data communication both within the chain of command but also with operational security concerns because it becomes public internationally about you know operational capability on board carrier. That was really the concern. I heard from lot of folks in the Pentagon. There wasn't note In defense secretary mark s letter released just a short time ago explaining all of this saying Investigation still underway in Crozier. And only when that is done will they decide if you will face any further penalties or results from this but but all in all an ugly episode all are truly very very embarrassing for the? Us Navy indeed? Our Jim shooter excellent reporting on your part as well thank you Connecticut. Meanwhile is reporting more than seven thousand corona virus cases and two hundred and seventy seven deaths. Seventy one of them just today. The Connecticut Governor Ned. Lamont joining us. Right now governor. Thanks so much for joining us. And now you've got a lot going on the director of the Centers for Disease Control now says the. Us death toll could be in his words much lower than models previously projected because the majority of Americans are taking those social distancing guidelines very seriously. How concerned are you though that this potential good news could lead people to stop following those guidelines? That potential good news reminds people why you've got to follow those guidelines. The social distancing may be flattening the curve a little bit. This is what we meant to do. the most important metric that. I look at Wolf. His hospitalizations and our hospitalizations are beginning. The flat now in terms of The rate of increase and that's invaluable to protect the capacity in hospitals. So this time sing. Happy days are here again. Now's the time to double down on your social distancing. 'cause you're neighboring governor The New York Governor Andrew Cuomo also says his State is starting to see starting to see a possible flattening Of the curve and hospitalizations. Are there any other positive signs? You're seeing in Connecticut right now. I think Well I talked to. Andrew about today was what we do is. The curve starts to flatten as we start thinking about what goes on next. I mean he and I worked together when it came to shutting down parts of our economy like bars and restaurants and I hope we work together when it comes to getting our workforce tested protected and back to work because you are the teaming up with the New York New Jersey governor as well to increase access to that rapid testing by working with private companies. Is that because the federal government isn't necessarily giving you all the help that you so desperately need. Look if I was the federal government I think they should have a testing protocol. I think role that at nor for guidance. To the governor's but short of that work of the Governor Murphy working with Governor calling ourselves. Look you have a tri-state workforce it makes all the sense in the world that we do the really important antibody testing to see who can get back to work safely. I because unfortunately even if the numbers might be going down than originally projected they projected maybe one hundred thousand two hundred twenty two hundred forty thousand but still those numbers are going to be very very painful as we all know governor. Lamar thank. You won't go ahead. Wolf what I was just going to say. What really worries me. Is We take our eye off the ball and there could be a second wave of this. It's really abort we work together in terms of making sure we're not just at the but we bring it down and we only get people back to work safely. If we jump back into the game again we could go through all this again in the fall. Thanks for having me. Well thank you so much remember early and Martha were eleven. Confirmed deaths here in the United States. Now more than twelve thousand a month later confirmed deaths in the United States so sad mothers and fathers sons and daughters are. We're watching all of this very very closely to wherever you are. Stay with US once again. We're waiting to hear from the White House. Corona virus tasks worse briefing. You're looking at live pictures coming in from the White House. Reporters aren't there the president's not there either as the vice president. They'll be there soon. Meanwhile there's some disturbing new questions emerging right now as the numbers indicate. Toronto virus infections are much more widespread in African American communities around the United States. You're about to seize Kiel. O.`Neil like you've never seen him before this show about my life just because I have more than the average guy doesn't mean I'm better than the got all new Thursdays at nine on. Tnt worst anybody here from the White House. Corona virus taskforce briefing. I'm looking at live pictures standby for that coming up. We're told fairly soon. We're also taking a closer look at what? Louisiana's governor is now calling the big disparity in the racial breakdown of Corona virus infections the US surgeon general flatly says African Americans face in his words a higher risk of the corona virus. Let's go to C. N. N.'s. Ed Londonderry's joining us from New Orleans right now. At early numbers show the virus is hitting black communities across the nation disproportionately harm. These statistics are starting to reveal in. This comes on a day that Louisiana has announced its largest increase in the number of deaths reported in a twenty four hour period. More than seventy people added to the roles of people who've died because of corona virus here in Louisiana Ronald Lewis embodied the soulful spirit of New Orleans he led the big nine Social Club which hosts epochs second. Line parades around his lower ninth ward neighborhood. Hurricane Katrina took his home but friends say he came back and became like a godfather of New Orleans culture. He'll love New Orleans. He understood the complexity of New Orleans. Ee and brought out the best in us in our ability to come together on March eighteenth. Lewis was rushed to the hospital. Two days later he died. It wasn't until the day of his funeral that his family says they learned. He was infected with the corona virus. That was shocking. Didn't you know he had just gone into the hospital? And I still really haven't read my mind around it. All the way. Ronald Lewis is family. Says the sixty eight year old suffered from diabetes and was recovering from a mild heart attack last year but they never thought the cove nineteen infection would take his life. The mortality statistics across the country are jarring in Louisiana african-americans. Make up thirty two percent of the population but make up slightly more than seventy percent of corona virus deaths in Michigan and Illinois. African Americans. Make up about fifteen percent of the overall population yet account for about forty percent of cloven nineteen deaths. This is an abomination. But it's not unexpected and I want everyone to understand that. New Orleans is a microcosm of every urban center in America. Dr Corey Bear has worked as a physician in New Orleans for twenty five years. He broke down the factors contributing to the high death rate among African Americans. There's underlying health issues. Like heart disease and diabetes. And if you drive around. New Orleans it's easy to find poor neighborhoods where people don't have access to healthcare many of these neighborhoods are food deserts.

"This is CNN. Breaking News Belka viewers here in the United States around the World Wolf Blitzer in the situation room. We're following breaking news. We're standing by for a briefing from the White House. Corona Virus Task Force looking at live pictures coming in from the White House three thing room as the US death phil from the pandemic now surpasses twelve. Thousand with almost four hundred thousand confirmed cases Worldwide there are more than one point four million cases reported and more than eighty thousand deaths. But tonight there is some hope that social distancing other measures Here in the United States may actually help reduce the number of lives lost the CDC director says the number of American fatalities could be in his words much lower than the two hundred thousand predicted by some models. Thanks to keep staying home. Let's begin our coverage this hour with our chief White House correspondent. Jim Acosta Jim. There were some very intriguing comments today from the CDC Director Robert Redfield about his prediction Involving the death toll here in the United States. That's the White House has yet to offer many details about how? The Corona Virus Task Force arrived at that estimate that one hundred one thousand two hundred forty thousand Americans would die. From the corona virus but public health officials are cautioning that the eventual number of dead could fall. Well under that figure as Americans are practicing social distancing. We're learning that. A key factor driving the large estimate was a crucial assumption discussed internally by Task Force officials that only fifty percent of Americans would observe the government's stringent social distancing guidelines in reality a much larger number ninety percent are observing those guidelines the director of the Centers for Disease Control. Dr Robert Redfield discussed that possibility. That the number of dead could fall well below estimates during an interview with an Arizona radio station. And here's what he had to say even the models that were a they assumed that only about fifty percent of the American public would pay attention to the recommendations. In fact what we're seeing is a large majority. American public are taking social distancing recommendations heart and I think that's the direct consequence while you're seeing the numbers are going to be much much much much lower than would have been predicted by the malls now in addition to that a source close to the Krona Virus Taskforce Dummy that the number a task force told me that the number of dead could fall well below way under in the words of this source The number of deaths that were projected by the director of the Corona Virus Taskforce. Dr Deborah burks. A White House official told us that Dr Burqas team with the Krona Virus Password was basing its estimates on a combination of models and we should note other experts have told our CNN health unit. The doctor Berkshires X. estimate is within the range of what they're projecting as well but the key point here. Is that some administration. Officials are suggesting that the final number of dead could be lower than what's been estimated at the same time public health officials are cautioning. And this is very important. This is not the time to stop a social distancing in the meantime wolf. We're waiting on president trump to comment on an early warning about the corona virus that came from his Trade Advisor. Peter Navarro who wrote to memo's one in late January and one in late February that pandemic could cause serious problems for the US in a memo dated January Twenty Ninth Navarro wrote and we can put this up on screen The lack of immune protection or an existing cure or vaccine would leave. Americans defenseless in the case of a full blown corona virus outbreak on. Us soil this lack of protection elevates the risk of the corona virus evolving into a full blown pandemic imperilling the lives of billions of Americans as we know the president still went on to tell Americans that the virus would go away in April. The president was just asked about this memo. He said he did know all about it as he put it but he he would wait until the press conference coming up here in a few minutes to talk about this more will answer questions at the briefing. White House to run a virus tasks worst breathing. That's coming up. The president as you know has now removed the official overseeing the two trillion dollars in emergency corona virus funding. Tell us about. That's a pretty stunning development. It is will. That's one other item that we're waiting to see the president's address to see whether or not he wants to talk about this and that is his decision to remove the Defense Department's Acting Inspector General. Glenn fine who was going to oversee the two trillion dollar stimulus package aimed at revitalizing the US economy. This is just the latest action as you know that Mr Trump has taken against government watchdogs in recent weeks critics. Of course say he is just trying to avoid any accountability but just yesterday wolf. We should point out. He was blasting the health and Human Services Inspector General who had issued a report on medical supply shortages at hospitals across the country. The president was wondering whether or not that inspector general was a Democrat and in fact she had been working for the federal government. Going all the way back to one thousand nine hundred nine. We'll serve democratic presidents Republican presidents. A career civil servant very respected highly respected civil servant. The president attacked her without even knowing who she was precisely what she had written arch. Mukasa thank you very much. Let's go to New York right now. Which is still reeling from the outbreak. Tonight OUR NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT ERICA. Hill is on the scene for us and she has been day after day. Erica the police department is really feeling the impact of this corona virus. Pandemic get absolutely and just to put that in numbers for you which I really think helps to paint that picture will nearly twenty percent of the NYPD calling out sick today that accounts to some seventy six hundred uniformed members. Now it's important to point out. These are not all people who have tested positive for corona virus but that is still seventy six hundred members of the NYPD. And we're seeing those numbers as we also learned today we'll of a thirteenth death to to grow virus at the NYPD on Monday New York logging. The state's largest single day death toll one overwhelmed funeral home. Doing its best to meet the need for no longer. Embalming them Just because we don't have time to have his patients were simply either. Bearing directly or direct cremation as the virus spreads. A disturbing reality exposed right now slightly. More than seventy percent of all of our debts are among african-americans Who make up about thirty two percent or so of the overall population of our state so obviously this is a big disparity access healthcare Environmental Issues in certain communities air quality water quality has done is magnified those issues to show that they're still a huge gap between racist when it comes to healthcare jobless claims skyrocketing this line in Florida Tuesday just to get the necessary forms everybody out. Here's risking their lives to get this application. We've given out hundreds and hundreds of applications in Connecticut on Employment Applications or about twenty times higher than anything. The state's seen during a recession healthcare workers continuing to sound the alarm about personal protective equipment in Maryland. One nurse practitioner tried making a face shield out of a page. Protector and a headband. I put it on and I I started crying and I thought I. I can't imagine anybody working wearing something like that staff. Also a major concern retired nurses and doctors answering the call to help relieve those on the front lines. I've never seen emergency departments or nursing or any of the services actually in general under so much threat. And you know it's it's a family so when families threatened you try to step up as much as you can on board the comfort which will now be dedicated to cova patients. The number of beds cut in half to five hundred for safety. One crew member has tested positive. One of the nation's largest grocery chains announcing new restrictions on capacity been growing concerns about. How and where the virus is spreading in Miami beach face coverings now required for all customers and employees at grocery stores pharmacies and restaurants including those making deliveries officials across the country stressing that wall. Social distancing is working now is not the time to relax those measures what we do affects the number of case. Our behavior affects the number of cases. We're generating the case. They're not descending on us from Heaven Right. It's our behavior Governor Cuomo. Today we'll also talked about reopening the economy noting. You can't just flip a switch and needs to be Gordon dated effort. And he says testing will be a key part of that talking about antibody testing that has been approved but is not available on a large scale. At this point that would allow you to test a person to figure out if they have had the corona virus and how they and then ultimately if they had had it and beat it to. You would know who had some potential immunity as you bring the work I back through. That would be so so important. The Erica Hill in New York for us. Thanks for the reporting. Meanwhile the Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Moseley is resigning one day after recording leaked of him. Calling the ousted. Commander of the US aircraft-carrier Theodore Roosevelt stupid in an address to the ship's crew. Let's go to our national security correspondent. Jim Shudo he broke the story for all of us at Jim. So tell our viewers what you're learning about. This resignation office has been a chain of events a quick chain of events. It really no one involved is proud of here. The Acting Secretary of the Navy submitting his resignation. This morning that being accepted by the Defense Secretary Mark Esperer. But it's safe to say that it was clear to me that he was losing support to keep his position. As you mentioned this followed him taking eight thousand mile trip all the way to Guam to address the crew and the CFO Roosevelt after their captain had been removed and using language that no one in the Pentagon was happy with in in. Disparaging the outgoing commander that ship have a listen to those comments here? He didn't think that information. I was going to get out into the public in this information. Age that we live in a naive or too stupid. The commanding officer of a ship like this.

"A special investigation for the lead now these last few days of March marked something of an inflection point for one specific corona virus impacted group that few lawmakers or most members of the public talk much about prisoners. Last week we learned about the first federal prisoner to die from Corona virus. Patrick Jones he was serving time for a nonviolent offense prisoners from Lisbon. Ohio to Oakdale Louisiana have contracted the virus behind bars and died from it. Kept workers warned that crowded prisons and jails with insufficient hygiene are becoming veritable. Petrie dishes incubating the virus and spreading it far beyond the walls of the facilities. Some officials have promoted the release of some prisoners to reduce the chances of what essentially would be or could be a death sentence. Perhaps nowhere are prisoners more vulnerable to this than in Alabama where the lidocaine footage of prisoners literally pleading for their lives. We help desperate pleas from behind bars prisoners in the Alabama correctional system fearing for their lives at the corona virus. Pandemic spreads is to be a mass grave site of unease. Cnn obtained this video from inside state prisons in just the last week capturing just how deplorable conditions are in the facilities the State Department of Corrections in an internal document obtained by Al Dot Com sounding the alarm quote. Twenty one thousand nine hundred inmates being housed in crowded dormitories creates a very high exposure risks. Situation they're not giving US hand sanitizers. They're not giving US proper so they're not giving us mass inmates crammed together overflowing in some spaces stupid crowd. It was super crowded. And it's super days with the Alabama state. Prisons are among the most crowded in the country. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics and the Justice Department found the thirteen major facilities in the state were one hundred eighty two percent past capacity one even at three times capacity here nope measures to stop growing buyers from coming in prison being so overcrowded. Once in this quiz glitter. Wow almost no testing. A prisoners has been done the internal Alabama Department of Corrections Document reveals that in the worst case scenario nearly two hundred inmates could die. Given that conditions will quote accelerate the transmission of disease among the inmate population as well as the Alabama Department of Corrections Staff. Social or physical distancing is not an option that closed and while some states and attorney general. Bill Bar have released. Some inmates early to help mitigate the oncoming Disaster Alabama for the most part has not CDs though the people that they should be laying due to the coronas. What in the world can this man. The Alabama Department of Corrections gave us no specific response to our story directing us to their website detailing their response to the outbreak in general which says in part quote rest assured that all inmates in our custody will continue to be provided with the services to which they are entitled including Rehabilitative Medical Dental and mental health through the duration of the Cova.

"Welcome to the lead Jake Tapper and we begin this hour with breaking news just minutes ago. We learned that. Uk Prime Minister. Boris Johnson has now been moved to intensive care as he. Battles Corona virus. Johnson was first admitted to a London hospital last night. Ten days after he. I tested positive for the prime minister is one of one point. Three million confirmed corona virus cases around the globe. There are more than seventy three thousand deaths from corona virus worldwide. That had been reported in the in the United States. More than ten thousand people have died. Ten thousand three hundred eighty nine as of this hour neighbors friends family members this time last week there were twelve hundred deaths now more than ten thousand as the nation's top infectious disease expert. Dr Anthony Foul is now warning the. Us IS STRUGGLING TO GET CORONA virus under control. I let's go to CNN. Bianca MOBILE IN LONDON BIANCO. Tell us what you're learning about. Boris Johnson Will Jake. It's a rapidly developing situation. The statement that we had from Downing Street was at the prime minister was taken to the intensive care unit at seven PM local time so now that's about two hours ago. At that point the statement said that he was conscious and was being moved to that union case. He needed the support of events later so at that time. It didn't sound like that. Was the kind of agent care that he required. But let's just look at the timeline of this and what's happened over an incredibly short period so last night. Eight PM in the United Kingdom about twenty four hours ago. The Prime Minister was admitted to St. Thomas Hospital in London. The statement read that he needed to have routine tests as a precaution because he had persistent symptoms after having Karuna virus for ten days though symptoms fever and a cough then. We learned this morning at the parliamentary lobby. Or by giving more information about the prime minister and the government that he was in good spirits and that he'd had a comfortable evening at that point a Russian report claiming that the prime minister walls on the ventilator was dismissed as disinformation then dominic Robb. Who's the Foreign Secretary? In the United Kingdom also author Secretary of State so the de facto. Deputy Johnson stood in for him at the daily briefing on Corona virus. You'LL CHEDDA nine fifteen. Am CORONA VIRUS WALL CABINET? Which would usually have been checked by the Prime Minister this morning? Now at the press conference which was only four hours ago. Dominic Robb stood that and said that the prime minister was comfortable. He was in good spirits and that he was continuing to lead the country for language was incredibly precise and we did note a deterioration in the sense that originally they were referring to the prime minister's condition as mild and now they're calling his his symptoms persistent but rob maintain that the prime minister was at the helm giving instructions when necessary. Then just two or three hours later. We learned that the prime minister had to be admitted to intensive care on the advice of his doctors. And we now await more information but we do know that Dominic Robb that gentleman I just mentioned will not be deputizing full. Boris Johnson. He will be the person taking the key decisions in this national emergency and Bianca. Obviously we don't know a great deal about the prime minister's condition but if the British government called disinformation The report I think he said from Russians that Boris Johnson was on on ventilator. But we know now. He's in intensive care current. Do we know if he is using oxygen or a ventilator? Have they disclosed that one way or the other? Although we have disclosed at the moment jake came from the statement which was released about an hour ago and they said that the prime minister remain conscious at this time. Given how rapidly? His condition has declined. We're talking about an hour and a half ago. The prime minister was conscious and that he'd be moved to the intensive care unit as a precaution. Should he require ventilation to aid his recovery? But now if we consider the fact that the prime minister only went into hospital last night and the his condition does appear to have declined quickly. It's difficult to say the situation that he would be and now he's going to get better and more intensive care where he is will have one on one support but she wouldn't have had before from the doctors that I've been speaking to most of the time they've moved patients in Britain into the ICU unit. Because they need a greatest source of oxygen than just a nasal chief all ventilation in more extreme cases but as I mentioned. The Prime Minister had had these persistent symptoms for ten days the Health Secretary and the medical officer who'd both being diagnosed positive with Corona Virus. The same time as the Prime Minister back working several days ago the prime minister continuing to decline the last time we saw him in person was when he emerged onto the steps of Downing Street on Thursday and that was to show his support for Britain's National Health Service. He came outside to clap. He was looking worse for wear not subjectively speaking. You could visibly see signs of sickness. And then he went back in. There's also been the old video. He's posted on twitter. But as I understand from my context within down the street obviously they were capturing his best moments trying to keep them morale of the country. Hi It's interesting because it sounds like the protocols in the UK or are similar to how they are in the United States. Which is if you really only get admitted in the United States. If you're having trouble breathing you can be weak feverish. You can be in a lot of pain but if you're having trouble breathing you basically after being examined are told to go home and rest your only really admitted in the United States. If you're having difficulty breathing for the most part Bianca thank you so much. Cnn's clarice award joins me now from right outside the hospital. Where Prime Minister Johnson is being treated? Clara? So what are you learning about the prime minister's Condition Jake? You know I've been standing here for the better part of the day Reporting lines given to us by ten Downing Street who have been saying that the prime minister was in good spirit that this was just a precautionary measure that he was just going in to get some tests because he'd had these persistent symptoms that had lasted ten days. And and you yourself remembered that just on Friday burs Johnson was saying. Oh it's still mild symptoms. But I can't seem to shake this fever. Will what a difference a few hours make Jay. Now he is in the intensive care unit. There's no indication for what I am hearing that he has been invaded which is to say that he has been essentially being put on a ventilator. Certainly Business For him to have been admitted to the ICU. At all. And I just want to give you a little bit of a picture here in the UK of how most of these emergency rooms are operating. Basically what happens when you enter the emergency room? There's a clean bay and a dirty bay the dirty bay for all suspected and confirmed Cova cases. Once you're in the dirty bay. It's it's siphoned off into four. Different wards one for suspected covert one for confirmed covert but manageable symptoms such as giving oxygen giving an IV drip if you're looking at a secondary infection such as pneumonia as a result of the covert nineteen virus and then the third ward is what they call full escalation. That is likely where bars Johnson. Although obviously he's the prime minister may be an exceptional circumstance but the kind of ward the level that he's at full escalation. It doesn't get more serious than this jake and I think a lot of people in this country tonight will want to know and understand better how it is that just a few hours ago. Downing Street was really trying to spin this as him. Very much being in charge of the country managing things and all his affairs from the hospital. This really is just a precautionary measure and now we find ourselves here in this circumstance with the Prime Minister of Great Britain in the intensive care unit. Behind Me Jake. It's really a shocking development clarice award outside the hospital where. Uk Prime Minister. Boris Johnson is. Thank you so much joining me right now to discuss. Cnn's chief medical correspondent. Dr Sanjay Gupta Sanjay as always. Thanks for being here So look I think it's possible that you know because he's the prime minister they're just taking every precaution but to be in the intensive care unit. What does that suggest to you? I would not be surprising development that that we hear that he ends up on a on a breathing machine. Jake and you know. Obviously this is a significant turn. But we're in the middle of pandemic these types.

"To lend in now where we have this news tonight. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved to the intensive care unit of a London hospital. He's being treated there for covert nineteen after. I trying to cope with symptoms at home. Johnson was admitted to Saint Thomas Hospital on Sunday and today his condition worsened. He was moved to the critical care. Unit may bring in. Npr's Frank Langfitt in London. And Frank what exactly are we being told about the prime minister's condition. Not a word Mary Louise just that he's been moved into the ICU. In case he needs a ventilator Downing Street says he is conscious so obviously felt that with something they needed to make clear And we don't know a lot more Saint Thomas's hospital just across Westminster Bridge very close number ten Downing Street across from Big Ben it has been designated for handling cove in nineteen patients And so that is the logical place for him to be with a lot of specialists in the ICU. There are so many questions starting with who who is running the country with the prime minister in intensive care will Downing Street says that The prime minister has deputised foreign secretary. Dominic Robb to handle some of the day to day business of government and the cove in nineteen response. The national. This is supposed to be temporary. Wall Johnson covers in the hospital. Now Rob chaired the cove. Nineteen meeting this morning for the government at at a press conference this afternoon. Jon Rahm said he talked Johnson back on Saturday and said that Johnson had been in good spirits. People were struck given the importance of Robin. This whole quake governmental equation here that he hadn't been in touch Sooner or more recently rather a co rob is a capable. He's a Brexit tear capable politician from Surrey. Which is a county. Just outside of London I do want to ask about Boris Johnson's partner. I know that they're expecting a baby how she's doing Her name is Kerry Simon's Boris Johnson's fiance. They are planning to marry but I guess it'll be quite some time given everything that's going on in the country right now. She did have covert nineteen symptoms. But she says that she's doing much better And so that's that's good news as as you would remember in October. Nineteen has really ripped through the government. Here Chris Witty. He's the chief medical officer he just appeared at a press conference day having disappeared for a long time with covert Nineteen Systems Matt Hancock. The public The Secretary of Health. He was gone for a week So it's been knocking people down and then fortunately they've been coming back and with. Boris Johnston himself. Just how has this progressed? I was looking. He was tweeting earlier today that he was in good spirits. He was tweeting from the hospital. Right well I think Mary Louise I think the public year has been a lot more concerned about this over the last ten days. Naturally they've seen this very gregarious populist kind of politician who loves depress. The flesh loves to get out there Ten days ago. He said had a persistent cough and a high fever. He disappeared from the press conferences. Which was a bad sign He no longer did live public speeches. He just put out a few sell videos when he came out last Thursday at number ten Downing Street to cheer on the nurses he looked really sick. You could know that he had you know heavy flu like symptoms. And of course what happened. Today I think has confirmed the the worst fears of people in this country and just in a few seconds. We have left frank just update US overall where to situation stand with Kovic nineteen in the UK The death of the death number now is Nearly fifty four hundred people. This is bad. Timing The government does not have the testing capacity that to really make a move forward in at this press conference today. They were not really willing to talk too much about the strategy. They have for lifting the lockdown and moving forward. Npr's Frank Langfitt reporting there from London. Thank you frank you very welcome Mary Louise..

"British prime minister Boris Johnson just won a big political mandate based on his pledge to in his words get brexit done record Heinrichs in the U. S. have a tough conversation with western Europe and I think that's exactly what we're in the middle life and I think you all of the things that make so many people I think rightfully uncomfortable about president trump about his abrasive approach and the way he talks to people many of the things that president trump has brought up and raised our true in fact in as a result we do see NATO spending more on defense committing more on collective security and then some of these other problems that he's raised although they're not fixed it's good that we're now addressing these head on Cory Shockey NATO in a better place after president trump's term or terms are done no I don't think so NATO has underlying problems that the president has has splashed out a whole lot of attention to but I think the question for the administration is whether the president's engagement with Europeans is gonna solve those problems and it doesn't look to me like it is it doesn't look to me like it's producing greater European commitment it does look to me like it is scaring Europeans and encouraging our adversaries to question the article five guarantee that NATO allies make to each other which is an attack on one is an attack on all so the increase defense spending including by the United States doesn't compensate for the anxiety and the questioning of our fundamental commitment and that really is the result of the president's policies the show for my last word this story isn't only about the tensions within the trans Atlantic alliance but also when it comes to Turkey who's in NATO obviously but also president Putin is about to celebrate his twentieth year and power yes but the two are related so I think the fact that we have our European allies questioning the US commitment to NATO more fundamentally than they have since NATO's founding that has created an opening and it's to the delight of Latimer prudent to be able to weaken NATO to see dissension in NATO and to start pick ng off allies like Turkey say Hey if you know you can't rely on the United States you're not sure of the predictability of their policy the reliability of their leadership let me sell you some air defenses Florio it sounds like a great deal but that's a wonderful way to get in there and start dividing the alliance show floor nine Rebecca Heinrichs Corey Shockey thanks to all and what a decade it has been online you can watch our in depth series on protest movements that broke out across the globe this year with a deeper look tonight at the unrest in Hong.
