Fresh update on "covid" discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak Asia
"Your free trial that I be KR dot com slash global trader. New trading week here on the Asia Pacific for a look at what to expect is Brian Curtis. Well, it looks like we'll probably see a little bit of a bounce today, but the number is in the equity futures in Asia are not suggesting big gains like we saw on Friday on Wall Street. The S&P 500 at 1.7% the NASDAQ up 2.1%. We're still kind of trapped in narrow ranges. A lot of that is driven by China. We will get the China data and we'll give you a report on that in a moment, expected to show some modest improvements. But again, the credit data that we got on Friday from the PBOC for July suggests that even low interest rates are not attracting borrowers and that there's definitely some constraints there on consumers. And so we'll watch all that play a lot of data coming later this morning. Right now I can tell you that Hanks and index futures are flat to slightly lower and same for China futures. Nikkei futures are up, but less than 200 points above the cash close last week. And so we'll see a less than 1% rally at the open, at least that's the expectations here I'll show you in futures are up a little up 6 tenths of a percent S&P E minis have traded slightly lower this morning down about two tenths of 1%. And looking at the dollar of the Bloomberg dollar spot index is flat, the end little weaker against the dollar dollar M1 33 49, and we've got the yield on the ten year treasury 2.83% dropping 5 basis points on Friday the two year all the way up at three 24. And we mentioned that some people were worried a little bit worried about the bouncing commodities last week. That fell apart on Friday. The Bloomberg commodity index was down about four tenths of a percent in crude, probably more than 2% dug to you. All right, Brian, thanks. Well, let's take a closer look at what we may expect later today in China when the government reports some economic numbers that it will be critical offering important clues on the direction of for the rest of the year. Here's Bloomberg's Rosalind chin. China will likely report a further recovery in its economy in July, retail sales probably grew 5% from a year ago up from 3.1% in June. That's according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists, with business and consumer activity gradually picking up with the relaxation of COVID restrictions. Meantime, the recovery momentum in the industrial sector likely stayed intact. Industrial output is estimated to have grown about 4.4% in July, up from 3.9% the previous month. Still, July's rebound could be short lived with COVID outbreaks in popular tourism destinations. Authorities recently shut down parts of Tibet's capital and left thousands of tourists stuck on the tropical island of hainan to contain infections. The Chinese government will publish data at 10 a.m. Beijing time. In Hong Kong, I'm Rosalind Chen, Bloomberg, daybreak, Asia. Saudi Aramco posted the biggest quarterly adjusted profit of any listed company globally, the state controlled oil producer said it posted about 48 billion in profit, and that's up about 26 billion from a year earlier. Aramco has benefited from high crude prices and production since Russia's invasion of Ukraine, now the company is using profit to reduce debt and invest in a huge expansion of its production capacity. Aramco has said it expects demand for its oil and chemicals to remain high for the rest of the decade. 5 minutes past the hour as we update global news, we've got another U.S. congressional delegation in Taiwan at Baxter with more from the Bloomberg newsroom in
Germany: EU could OK combined COVID vaccines next month
"Germany's health minister Karl loiter back says E regulators may authorize the use of vaccines that are each effective against two variants of the coronavirus low to back expects the European medicines agency to meet on September 1 to consider a vaccine that would provide protection against both the original virus and the so called omicron variant also known as BA one the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has said the combination vaccines known as bivalent or multivalent shots will allow boosters to retain the proven benefits of original coronavirus vaccines while providing additional protection such an approach is used with flu shots which are adjusted each year depending on the variants that are circulating I'm Charles De Ledesma
Fresh update on "covid" discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak Asia
"Here in the city, which means you as futures are coming online and Asia's waking up and stretching to get a sense of direction. Doug Chris is with us right now. It's going to be tricky. This is going to be the first opportunity for markets where you are, Dave, to react to a very strong equity rally in the U.S.. We had the S&P up about 1.7%. To be fair, though, there is a healthy amount of skepticism. That spark was related to a jump in consumer expectations reported by the University of Michigan. So if you look at the bond market, we had yields across the curve moving higher. We've got a ten year two 83, a two year three 24. Minutes from the last fed meeting are due on Wednesday, they're going to be released as the market continues to debate the size of the next rate hike. Will it be 50 basis points 75? Also in the week ahead, the report on retail sales. Maybe that will give us a little bit of clarity and then on the earnings front numbers from Walmart and target, they'll come just a few weeks after those firms cut their profit outlooks. Now today in China a little I should say a litany of economic news will take a closer look at that momentarily anecdotally though, more than a dozen export managers in China interviewed by Bloomberg news are saying that orders from overseas customers are simply drying up and some are predicting the best they can aim for is flat demand versus last year. The dollar stronger we had the Bloomberg dollar spot index rising about two tenths of 1% weaker yen, though, Chicago nikkei futures about a 180 points or so above where we were Friday in cash and a market holiday today in South Korea, Brian. Doug, thanks very much. Let's get to some of the top stories this morning. We'll get economic data in China later on. That could offer some important clues on policy direction for the rest of the year. Bloomberg, Rosalind chin has a preview. China will likely report a further recovery in its economy in July, retail sales probably grew 5% from a year ago up from 3.1% in June. That's according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists, with business and consumer activity gradually picking up with the relaxation of COVID restrictions. Meantime, the recovery momentum in the industrial sector likely stayed intact Industrial output is estimated to have grown about 4.4% in July, up from 3.9% to the previous month.

Authorities recently shut down parts of Tibet's capital and left thousands of tourists stuck on the tropical island of hainan to contain infections. The Chinese government will publish data at 10 a.m. Beijing time. In Hong Kong, I'm Rosalind Chen, Bloomberg daybreak, Asia. I'm adding to that. We did see weakness on Friday in the credit numbers for July. And Bloomberg economics says that it should put policymakers on alert, demand for loans was weak. The weakest since 2017. Yeah, absolutely. And we'll get a sense of that too. There's a medium trim lending facility operation today from the PBOC, the expectation there is they'll take up some of the liquidity on the table that certainly bank clients have not really taken up into their balance sheet. Now let's have a look at earnings right now. So Saudi Aramco actually out in the weekend here, posting the biggest quarterly adjusted profit of any listed company. Globally is it a state controlled oil producer said it posts that get this $48 billion in profit that's up from about 26 billion from a year back. No, Aramco has benefited from high crude prices in the production since Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Now, the company is using its profit to reduce its debt and invest in a huge expansion of its production capacity around co says it expects demand for its oil and chemicals to remain high for the rest of the decade. And coming up in a few moments we will be discussing markets with Christina hooper at chief global market strategist at invesco advisers. But now it's 5 and a half minutes past the hour time for global news. Another U.S. congressional delegation is in Taiwan and daxter has global news from the 9 60 newsroom in San Francisco Ed. Yeah, exactly right, Brian, let's
First cruise ship since pandemic began arrives in NZ
"New Zealand has welcomed the first cruise ship to return since the coronavirus pandemic began signaling along sort of return to normalcy for the nation's tourism industry Indigenous Maori perform a welcoming ceremony as the carnival Australia's Pacific explorer cruise ship docks in Auckland with around 2000 passengers and crew New Zealand had closed its borders in early 2020 as it sought at first to eliminate COVID-19 entirely and then later to control its spread although the country reopened to most tourists arriving by plane in May it wasn't until two weeks ago that it lifted all remaining restrictions including those on maritime arrivals I'm Charles De Ledesma
Daniel Horowitz Describes ‘The Rise of the Fourth Reich’
"Daniel Horowitz is here author of a new book that is very subtly titled. Not exactly getting to the point. The rise of the fourth Reich confronting COVID fascism with the, with a new Nuremberg trial, so this never happens again, Daniel Horowitz. Daniel, I want to get to your book, but let me just ask you a question. You're Jewish. That's a big claim to say that this is the rise of the fourth Reich. It's a very big claim. And I want to get into it, but I think given the week we live in. That's what I really want to do. I think everyone understands what that means. And I want to be very specific. It's not just about a severity of evil. It's very technical in what they're doing, who's doing it, and how they're doing it. But I mean, more broadly, look, Charlie, when it comes to the FBI raid and I think kind of forgotten, but just a significant the seizure of congressman Scott Perry's phone, this is not a matter of a red line crossed by the bad guys. Because as I lay out in my book, that was crossed March 2020. Okay, and somehow the conservative movement slept through the last two and a half years, which is bizarre. I mean, COVID fascism, January 6th, and then Ukraine, that was all part of it. But this is more an IQ test whether we have crossed our own line. It's an IQ test for the conservative movement. Will this finally motivate us to change our strategy and what we do politically?
FDA: Take 3 home tests if exposed to COVID to boost accuracy
"Federal health officials say if you were exposed to COVID-19 take three home tests instead of two to make sure you're not infected I Norman hall The Food and Drug Administration had previously advised taking two rabbit antigen tests over two or three days to rule out infection but the agency now says new studies suggest the protocol may miss to many infections and could result in people spreading the coronavirus to others especially if they don't develop symptoms The new guidance applies to people without symptoms who think they might have been exposed People with symptoms can continue using two tests based 48 hours apart Antigen tests which are less sensitive than lab tests have become the standard testing approach due to their speed and convenience Norman hall Washington
CDC drops quarantine, distancing recommendations for COVID
"Centers for Disease Control and Prevention relaxed its coronavirus guidelines The recommendation is being dropped that people quarantined themselves if they come into contact with an infected person You no longer need to stay at least 6 feet away from others It's part of a recognition by the CDC We know that COVID-19 is here to stay Greta masetti is an author of the guidelines She says conditions have changed High levels of population immunity due to vaccination and previous infection and the many tools that we have available to protect people from severe illness and death have put us in a different place with COVID-19 Masks continue to be recommended only in areas where community transmission is considered high The CDC is also dropping the recommendation schools do routine daily testing but it can be reinstated if there is a surge in infections I'm Ed Donahue
FBI Delivers Subpoenas to Several Pa. Republican Lawmakers
"That the FBI has been paying multiple visits to Republicans in the Pennsylvania House and Senate looking for information on congressman Perry also subpoenaing them as well trying to get information Essentially what the FBI is trying to do with the Biden administration is trying to do is criminalize free speech criminalize the ability to raise questions about an election If you're an anti Pelosi you can tweet that the election was hijacked You can say the Russians did it this that and the other but don't you dare dare question an election if you are a Republican apparently the First Amendment does not apply to you just like it didn't during COVID when you had rioters had the ability to go burn down cities burned down businesses with Sienna and fiery but peaceful in the background everything on fire lying to us then as they do now and as they always do They had that's not a freshman remnant to burn down cities We know that But they could exercise whatever they were exercising But you can go to church You had to stay in your homes this that and the other So we already know that basically there is no equal application of anything in today's America no equal application of the law no equal application of the ability to exercise your First Amendment rights And then if they don't like what you say they also just trying to change the language change the narrative
North Korea claims disputed victory over virus, blames Seoul
"North Korea's claiming a disputed victory over COVID-19 and blaming Seoul The north leader Kim Jong-un has declared victory at a national meeting where his sister said Kim had suffered a fever himself and then laid dubious blame against South Korea for the outbreak While varying deadly retaliation North Korea's outbreak statements are widely doubted and are thought to be aimed at helping Kim maintain absolute control of the country Some experts believe the victory statement signals Kim's intent to move to other priorities but a concerned his sister's remarks could lead to a provocation I'm Charles De Ledesma
Where Is Merrick Garland?
"Where is Merrick Garland? You would think that after you raid a former president's home that you would at least get a press release, you'd think that the DoJ would mention this in passing silence, nothing. You go to justice dot gov, they have this Justice Department establishes reproductive rights task force. Justice dot gov, they have clicks of links of COVID-19 relief fraud scheme. Massachusetts construction company owner indicted for tax crimes. Okay. Nothing about the raid of a president, to give an idea of how extraordinary this raid was, it was a 9 and a half hour occupation, including over 30 agents, equivalent equivalent of a 180 man hours where Trump's staff were literally kicked out of Mar-a-Lago and now we're just waiting waiting and anticipation, where is Merrick Garland? And sun tzu's art of war, there's a great quote that says 1 may know the condition of a whole army from the behavior of a single man. Now, the silence is something I didn't anticipate. The raid surprised me to some extent. The timing of it. But generally, when I thought about it, we predicted here on this program. But Merrick Garland being the attorney general of the United States owes the country, hey, how did this happen exactly? What was the reason for it? Why could you have not issued a subpoena? Why a raid? Just everyone understands a raid is only necessary if you believe a crime is currently being committed or property is about to be destructive. Donald Trump was not even at Mar-a-Lago.

China's youth face bleak job market as COVID slows economy
"China's current job drought echoes the struggle of young people worldwide to find work in depressed economies but is especially sensitive politically in a year when president Xi Jinping is expected to try to extend his time in power China's unusually severe approach towards COVID-19 with repeated lockdowns has kept case numbers low but a social cost has sworn the economy shrinking in the three months ending in June and consumer spending plunging the official unemployment rate in June for people age 16 to 24 was almost 20% compared with 5.5% for all ages and that's expected to rise once the latest jobless graduates are taken into account they often come from urban families who are the biggest winners for China's economic growth and important source of political support the ruling party needs them I am Charles De Ledesma
'The Bodies of Others' Author Naomi Wolf on the War Against Humans
"Return with Naomi wolf, her brand new book, the bodies of others, the new authoritarians COVID-19 and the war against the human. Now, Naomi, when you say the war against the human, this is where I see this extraordinary convergence. I mean, because we're living in such bizarre times, but when you leap to this idea of the war against the human, you're positing humanity as a good thing. And you're saying that those on the other side, these authoritarians are somehow wittingly or unwittingly anti human. Just talk about that for a moment. Sure, and I have sadly a ton more evidence of their war on humanity since the time we last talked to Eric. It's truly terrifying. So in my book, I make the case that, as I mentioned, these bad guys, right? This loose alliance of the World Economic Forum, the Chinese Communist Party, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, governments, and big tech used the pandemic of the last two years and used medical or public health messaging as cover for the real intentions, which we're seeing play out now. They were pretty successful. Their real intentions were to dissolve human civilization and to weaken human beings. And to transfer assets and power and control from human beings as a group, but especially from the middle and working classes to them themselves. And they've been largely successful. Let's just take two examples. The lockdown directive, right? It didn't help the data and it didn't help in terms of stopping the spread. It totally helped in terms of crushing businesses that couldn't afford to stay closed for 6 months a year. Over a year, small businesses, mom and pop shops, small landlords, but Amazon is open, right? Etsy is open. So you saw these companies go up 20 to 25% market share. And people's people's habits completely changed.
Naomi Wolf Has Her Own Opinions About the Raid of Trump's Home
"It's now my privilege and joy to have as my guest for the rest of the show. Naomi Wolfe, Naomi, welcome back. Thank you so much, Eric. Thanks for having me. Well, I want to talk to you about a hundred things. First of all, your book is out. We spoke about it, but there's a lot more to say. It's titled the bodies of others. The new authoritarians, COVID-19 and the war against the human, because today is today, I have to say that when I read the new authoritarians, the idea that the FBI, you don't have to like Trump, folks. This is not about that. This is about the rule of law. This is about are we free people, governing ourselves, or have we entered a new era. And I have to tell you, and Naomi, you probably know this, but Brandon strock had his door broken down by the FBI. They are terrorizing people. Simone gold. You must know Simone gold. She's in jail because she's a Doctor Who had the temerity to talk about the vaccines as a bad thing. And what we're seeing right now, it's nothing less than astonishing. It's frankly hard to believe that it's happening in our lifetimes that we're seeing this kind of thing. But you don't only acknowledge it. You've written a book about it. Yeah, thank you. I mean, this is horribly horribly predictable based on the trends that I analyzed in the bodies of others, but it's still such a shock. And I just want to kind of publicly and formally apologize. On behalf, I'm not aligned with the Democrats, but I voted for it that my voted for this administration. And I just truly am so sorry and just want to words can't express how appalled and horrified I am to witness that people I voted for are tasking our law enforcement with terrorizing private citizens in a way that is really reminiscent of the Stasi and the black shirts.

Senate Passes the Inflation Reduction Act
"They did it. Joe Biden, the Senate Democrats spent another $700 billion over the weekend. Now the house will have to confirm that on Friday and they will. They'll pass it. And so Joe Biden's record after two years is pretty pretty straightforward. What they're running on. He's doubled the size of the IRS as of yesterday. They spent 80 billion of that 700 billion on the IRS. I know it's unbelievable. That's what they did. Basically doubled the size of the IRS. They spent three and a half trillion total over two years. Three and a half trillion. That was not needed because COVID had been recovered from that have been taken care of by in a bipartisan fashion by the last two congresses under the last two budgets under president Trump. But they spent 1.9 on the American recovery act that was unnecessary. 1.5 trillion, 1.9 trillion. 550 billion in infrastructure, 280 billion on the chips act, and 700 billion this weekend. So are you better off with a IRS that's double the size of what it was 87,000 new IRS agents in 9.1% inflation. Are you better off with Joe Biden and the Democrats running everything?
The More You Inject, The More You Infect
"From Massachusetts. Hey, Charlie. Love your conversation with Steve kersh. Can you kind of illustrate more on how the vaccine is not working the way they said they would? Well, for example, in Australia. Over 96% of the adult population in Australia is fully vaccinated. More than 70% are boosted and yet they just set a new record for COVID deaths. Just give me an idea. A new record for daily COVID deaths has now been hit for this year in Australia. Not exactly working the way they said it would. Not even close actually. In fact, it's looking like. And I'm willing to have anyone disagree, come on this program that is a vaccine peddler. The more you inject, the more you infect.

"covid" Discussed on Lagos Covid-19 Updates
"Having less money to invest into the criminal justice system in order to pursue a format functions having said all that what role can the government and private individuals play in controlling the gender violence asa pandemic. So what i'm asking. We need to have coordination of all public services across all stays. I health justice law enforcement and social welfare services. Because that's the only way we can actually a shift in the needle. We have laws and i'm sure probably although even toasty may speak of the act. This is an act that we've spoken all day in day out. We've established it. It's an amended law is works. It covers the bases. You talks about rape talked about all the other aspects of gender based violence but unfortunately as we speak only twenty three states out of thirty six have domesticates of it. We talk about child abuse and we say we need to protect the child. We know this. I mentioned personally. Having to treat. Children tossing has mentioning other center a two year old. Then we have a child right at that. Only twenty five states have domesticated across the country. And this is from two thousand three. We have a national offenders registry. I'm not sure if you're aware of this. They mullah from last year it's documented six hundred two cases thirty eight had been convicted illegal state one of the more progressive states. We have a special sexual events court. But how about the other thirty five states and i mentioned sexual assault referral centers. We have thirty of them across seventeen states but in lake also known we have four. And we've had eight new ones since twenty twenty. They have to be collision with all the actors in play. It has not just one governmental of love or one simple society addressing this and as you said start through the individual taking ownership of the problem in the community allowing that survivor to speak out giving backlash from from her call. People speak even the way we bring up our children the fact that we allow our boys to be entitled. We encourage our girls to be subservient in the house and to be silenced. How about we start. Day appreciating the quality as the child is born and giving those children whether it's a boy or girl equal opportunities. We talk about policy. How about recognizing that beyond having that lovely roadmap we need to implement the policy at the organization oliver mention police officers laos for instance. We have family support. Units at a specially trained to address gender cases but only twelve and twenty one billion people in laos alone. This is one of the reasons why we actually established gender sanitation program. Thaw police officers deeply trained up about nine hundred of them and counting. Because that's an aspect that is critical in addressing the issue. Chosing mentioned that race perpetrated at underlying calls because rape occurs because of rapists. And you're right. He does occur and they will continue with impunity. Except we all make deliberate efforts to ensure at don't and it starts in the community and then works his way out ensuring all the different aspects of public services tackling the problem cohesively and in a deliberate fashion bothwell invention of social media and other communication platforms issues as ripe have been taken as comical issues by notable persons and otherwise speaking on how to counter this narrative. Dr tilson keeble spoke about collaboration with the movie industry. We have plans very solid plans to walk with actors guild of nigeria to support the process of reviewing the content. What is it that we we. We put out there so nine. Hundred million people watched tv before. What africa magical and so that is one way of getting the attention of the of the community and another thing is that the public and private sectors shoots expand collaborative efforts at the beginning. I was going to ask you that. Do you know the cost of of violence. Against women in nigeria. If we sit down and calculates there was a study recently that that showed the average cost for four victim of of Based violence is about seventeen thousand naira. This includes hospital minus legal. Dr chemi mentioned that they're let me have lots of nettie station. We have the vibe. We have the child rights act but we have monitoring tools in place to ensure that they are not only implemented their enforced. And that are they used in the right way. Social media is there. It is a strong viable weapon. It is a medium that cannot go away in a hurry you see hashtags. You saw the recent one about the lady who unfortunately passed on in the in the hands of of someone who tricked her to say she should come for a job and within an hour of her friend putting up an sos people had trucks. This suspect to where he wants and before you knew there was an opera. How can we harness this new media to be able to direct our narrative to be able to support society to shift Harmful stereotypes like what told me. I said we're moving away from hello. My husband just beats me now so being able to just tap a button on your phone whether you're a woman with one disability or the other you can seek for help but we cannot get there if that collaborative effort does not take these. There has to be that time when private sector and government comes together the young collaborative effort on joint initiatives. Can we set up a gp. Four that covers laws and policies strengthening institutions prevention which is at the community level social media engagement service provision data coalition for for funding purposes for information purposes and strengthening women's movement strengthening The the coalition within the country. So it is very possible to use social media. it is currently being used. But we're not doing enough. And until critical stakeholders come together to make it intentional on the joint initiative for example we will be engaging way the federation of women's Female football's of nigeria. So see their their football matches going on their adverts that run through the field. What do we want to see using that opportunity. I know some people would not sleep until they watch football and if their team loses their seek for one month and so they get information from from that engagement but as my colleagues. Michael panelists have said the problem of gender. Based violence is multi sectoral is multifaceted. And so must be the solution for it. Yes we must look at lowe's and we must look at institutions. Prevention service will be sean data collection.

"Of these statements for example. You go to the decision to say. I on the way way what you're wearing. You want to run the clock out some Stigma comments associated. And how we're by eventually people in a range of technologies so a mobile application for reporting incidents of gender violence other security because against security builds a you will says the application three or four zero. Hush that's helped you know. Provide racial equifax and of course we did rich people in remote communities and we we have a relate a call center which is constantly scary but because we of technology live how from the business a business opportunity that we used to and wide dress. This issue of stigma no doubt solutions and the works to control gender. Valentine's said that tackle the problem. The base must be unravelled. Oliver still shares answers to questions as what prompts gender violence. But i think as important thing that. I've not heard yet coming olives as clearly as i would wish to Which is really a deep issue of impunity. Essentially a we need to be very clear to us and said it very well Obviously the problem is the perpetrator but everybody talked about the victim. So far is essentially we need to also starts focus of the perpetrator and those resources at the state institute putting in place in order to actually address the situation of the perpetrator of their criminal justice. Accountability i'm not calling for the death penalty on any of that kind of extremists. Depth sometimes comes into this discussion. And i think that is just as unhelpful as basically did the wish so to speak to to to only address the needs of the victim. We need a criminal justice system that is basically equipped First and foremost with well trained individuals professionals. Whether we're talking about the frontline officers very off the beat policemen. Essentially is the first one on the scene. How do they react to a situation of domestic of gender of sexual based violence alleged or actually in process. Then we have the issue of the people in the police station most notably the investigators. Are they trained. Actually doing the right thing collecting the evidence and very importantly not re victimizing the victim into process and of course prosecutors and judges very importantly do they have to necessarily laws to actually establish the protection for example of the victims. I think we have at the moment. A situation where essentially gender based violence or fences are generally bailable that means even in the case that goes well up to that stage that alleged perpetrator of gender based violence will after a short while in self. Pay a damn bail or half short standing in for them and the judges not have necessarily in the the training nor necessarily the laws in order to prevent actually at the perpetrator going back to exactly the same place where the offense was committed is so as all these kind of layers that i think are contributing and two quite some weak response as a society. Let's not forget that the criminal just victim support one part of the response of as a the other one is basically holding the perpetrators to count.

I'm suffering styles The national now register which is being talked about now is about two point six million households. We closed about eleven thirty five people also too few. The president came out loud. I'm someone weekly see that we need to increase in number by not shown. I want me and so we probably have Let's see three point. Six million households that needs to be reached or that we reached but then you have more than two point. Six million households we have. We should have about fifteen houses. What are we doing seclude? The we've over one hundred million people that are in poverty. These knots even captured in the register. Which of course. Even you would have with two point six million. Also you'd have twenty nine people captured. Are we have a population of two hundred million or more done? And then you have an additional fifty percents of those more than two percent of the population living in poverty. So you tells you social brush stroke Joe reaching out to the poor undo that are picked. It goes modules report that are affected by this crisis of this time. He tells you that that social structure is not strong enough. And it's not working we. We need to wait conference. Does each night wave tweet developed status stuff each named Jerry on social security number or some sort of way that we can recognize. It's about bbn. It's not main engines afford to look me in in the wake. On each named Jaren wake-up we've push those conversations about each named Jaren having a social security number rates knew who we are where we are are level of income and if we got to be easier go into credit account or send palliatives who demo to each that affected by such crises. So that's one so the second points he's on thinking about homegrown solutions to whatever program we in this country. Because I'm not the most ants particularly with the lockdown. Sometimes we we do a lot of visa. What's been done outside the countries and they'll just send to more than e countrywide even stuff it Programs so I think This time we mean homegrown solutions. We need to really think of. How can we see the economy and save lives at the same time if we we need to invest so much in in in testing facilities invest in the healthcare system and all that but at the same time I think we could consider gradually opening up being fees the economy so that people can work so that people can earn another Nigerians about sixty sixty two percent? And the income. So that tells you better. I mean if you look at the informal nature economy tells you a little people would have been affected by this cases. We can't even afford. So for instance the Sovi does it. General House Soviet done by the national statistics and they mentioned super since Mangyan also feast shortages twelve months of this. Oh Vance was released before. Even the coronavirus issue came to talking about two percents of households context gets. That's been come. Get adequate supply of food and twenty nine thousand for the flu for that. The resort to that twenty seven percents households have to keep your meal because they didn't have money. We're hungry and didn't even eat because of lack of money to the petition is their sincere easy. Cva In the country. And I think we must make conscious effort to see how we come into being reach out to the poor while at the same time stops to keep stuff the common. I can give an example of one. Niimi shifty points announced divide the Celtics on President. The present announced that President announced that up there are five levels For the economy is the coronavirus east content so they never once never find live a fighter simply easy severe lockdown economic activities which way the country is right now.

We can't afford to continue to keep people up too long Because economic implications would be with eight since Rhodri on God bic's so we must pulled together and think of a solution. How do we what? What areas can we even open up? In addition to the essential sick or that era can we opened. What interventions can you? Please do we need to have washing machines. Everywhere do we.

So it's unfortunate that the world is going through this right now grew You know the Coronado virus situation. He's not being funny. Series of Google Shutdown Donald factories. Shut Down Post We've also had an increasing number of cases you know from on China moving over to the United States equally on Europe in general even here in Africa across all different continent. So it's not been an easy one so the number of dead cases out of also increased as well but on the economic side on coming back home here in Nigeria. We've seen how festival so they are different of several transmission mechanism. So do one of them is the price channel where we've seen how demand for could drop significantly physically driven by low low industrial activities. Even people aren't even going out so they lure demand for transport services Which means that based on for fuel? So we've seen cases where KUDA advice features the beat features even wins into a negative so people were actively paying to sell the crude Brains We've seen the drug prices to below twenty dollars per barrel. So that's one key. Effect on also worrisome. I made you couldn't even point. So it's crude because his Such retail with so much put from different places different continent different countries. Saudi Arabia Russia's to you know going on with these war who controlled the market so that creates a lot of uncertainty and outlook for the price of crude which we all knew that It's a major to tell me. Not How would home because who those who? Who Do. I need surprise? Oats to also have accused in relation to grow now reserves Fake thing go. Men's revenue and also can boost in external an exports earnings. So the woman days that drove a significant drop in crude oil project. What we're experiencing it means go. Mint will not be able to meet its financial obligations so things like team salaries which are very important to of things that Keno costs to keep the government running things like infrastructure investment in education healthcare spending unlivable would be severely affected as a result of the decline include a price so that was one effects off the virus pandemic on on major out. And we all know that. Didn't they drink on every dependent on government last recession you? What dresses dot point? One days trouble. We'd Goldman finances that direct linkages into the system of course demand going down ability to meet for an exchange needs becomes Richard Grind fixed on our reserves of approaching five dollars. Fallen significantly on this is made was that we don't have adequate savings fiscal bofors because this this is what countries rely on this point in time to see if we can't get rid of and you only need to drive into saving but right now we're GonNa have got so it's a gesture switch on major. It's not an easy one and a lot of a lot of things of ancient would need to go on what we do now because projections. I've said that the recession is inevitable. We come up way so the question then is what is the how come show that. We don't get to the bottom economic depression new and show that we even if we get into research on become come back because he's just a word it's deficts lives and people who are jobs prizes. We'll go up the poll. Become for many people would fall below the poverty line so these are some of the reality. Is that likely to come on onboard going into next year? So that's one. Tim Buck of price on that. Transmission Magnesium is the fact that cinch off and on trade. He's also been disrupted movement. You know challenges and the global supply chain. So there's an overall materials on this show groups that need to be used in production of what I would also be affected especially when many of the global economy is experiencing lockdown economic activities so? I know that Chanel is through the local disruption intensive Destroy activities locally in Niger. Due to look into restriction so that in itself is a very big space that would also planned in parks and we can imagine for almost a month. We've not read it much economics to c.s in my GDP particularly for you on these continues into it took me June so what if you compared to? Gdp growth egos was that we claim to be lower than what we had by this time last year. So that's an eight. Direct hits on economic activities even do Production of essential temp like food drugs on cool but non-essential also very key down. These needs me to the impact on some sectors so far east on the manufacturing sector. Would you want to do it? Because as much respect for the other sectors within during that fall within the enormous I shall read. That's locked fates cement funding loved the older non-essential sickle sub sectors within the manufacturing sector few grocery goes factor and say coins in nineteen grew by just zero point two percent from two point one percents in twentieth. So that tells you that already you experience in decline so these kind of shock to the system much more declaim talks won't key six also come additional one hundred thirty entertainment and recreation. Saito would be heat So tells you restaurants on it basically places. We have gatherings of people events of one on one key areas that are affected by these. Look down that Saito would be obscene. Li La down what we had last year on undertake construction sector. So we've had a case way Because Structure Signal always relies heavily on government spending. So if you look at the jets let one dedicated to capital spending close to over to treat with being. Shall we D- falling oil prices to review the Govan. How to read either budgets to using the bench Bockel Fizi da Barra even with that. And still you know STU opinions going around that that's unit so We may not have any projections because he's not just oil time also annoying so if the economy's on found a major commitment to these you know try to be mean to spray the requires without also means one. I- revenue companies and install commentary so we would also let me see declaiming noyer so that's over of course without fixed construction and even right now the the main focus has been to contain the spread of the buyers. If you notice most of the government's batsmen Goldman spending than channel to hell and some of the sectors. So what are we talking about roots structure on a really apple so to construct contact though would definitely be be hard heats sectors so there's also transport take the transportation movement of goods four segments to real road and see dressing. The transportation was actually the fastest growing thing Clinton in nineteen. I see deep so this time. It's the hot heat. Because the restrictions on the movement is either was one of the best sectors valid affected. Even so it'd be lots of so we would probably have naked down declining. Good enough transports sector across all the different categories so from the air transports to transport a real transport so also social services sector so you have education on our very key. Sick does that. I think that's a result of of the lockdown for education show downloads to and that in itself tells.

When a person dies of ninety I believe is right here and right now kept business radio to it profitable Africa so it is no longer news that the former chief of staff to the President of the Republic of nine Mama Carey died or the coronavirus seventeenth of April. Twenty twenty now.

So why do we need made in Nigeria Solutions Thanks thanks for having US. Social distance in as walks in part because the the government shutdown. And you know bothers movement in Lagos Ogun Abu However you know keeping a distance from each other working from relying on your safety net these measures which advised by. Who you know against the coronavirus pandemic made for parts of the war. That cannot afford to retreat in individualism for millions of people in cities. Like Lagos and Kano. There's no such thing as You know social distancing yourself many in those for almost a month now legos. You know some are privileged enough to stop the panthers who had loss of You know hand sanitizers wipes facemasks food and basic needs but many others rely on d today and in for them to be able to provide for themselves now. These safety nets have not been readily available in Nigeria. The government you know in these states and the federal government have been doing their bit but there's the comments on histories now people say Hong Kong Alvar. You know the land mass of Lagos is unbelievable. Small landmass with a lot of people teen to twenty million people depending on where you are. If New York you know never sleeps because the lights are always on Lagos never sued. Because there's no power most times because you know man people stay outdoors to get some air some so that they don't choke down. Wendy are getting some air you know. A lot of things can happen. You know. Illegals relies on a lot of informal economy. It's the economic capital of Nigeria. Was still you know. It's the informal economic capital of West. Yes because mining curious street might manicures. You know it's very novel is nothing you'll find all about. This is how these people survive and these people the ones who houses leaving communities where forty people or more share building share a bathroom you know. So how do you social distance from that? It's different from what it is all about the world that is why you know we need to look inward. I look at our own peculiar challenges to solve our own problems and You know you know. The government has been trying to the state government who look at things from a holistic manner. Which is what we've been clamoring for for years and years. The local governments need to be powered by themselves. Because it is true. You know local governments that we can get primary healthcare now. We get a lot of things happening for people in their words in the zones. You know that is why we need made in nine hundred solutions. You know I can continue to speak. Speak about many things that you know you know. We need to do but think about it. Even beyond the people that live in penury Two weeks coronavirus case was confirmed in Lagos doctors in the AFC. Booja announced that they were going on strike. Overwhelmed compete salaries. Those are doctors. The people you know part of the Tri Stat supposed to help stop the spread of the Earth. You know in it's it's it's just very baffling and what we must do. Now is crafty innovative solutions based on our own unique similarities. And this not mean that we have one solution for the whole country. We simply need to make these solutions graduate solutions in densely populated passively must differ from the suburbs dissolution from Alabama's differ from you know scanty islands in Nagoya. We Need Solutions. That are based on local challenges of the people set in places. I haven't had cases you know. Pat Glennon Yanagawa. If people live on an island and then you you stop them from traveling. Mainland to get resources Dandy will look for other ways that we can cost the spread if there is a case amongst them so we must envisioned solutions for win was also invasion could solution for win coronavirus spikes because according to some experts above the NCDC and Lagos officials. We haven't reached that peak yet. So at that point we must plan for it on That is why we need. Maybe Niger solutions because men for example even in Lagos right. Now you're looking at places like but agree yes. There are no cases in fire. We buy in. We look when we talk me goes we. Oh we just think maybe the metro yeah places like the you know the mainland Ikeja Nasty like that. But I'll expect that somewhere like but agree Those who who are four years I jog by be locked down. Saturday doesn't get there and then they will find a way to ensure that you know their life can continue their but within that space absolutely should be solutions. Need to be designed for each part of and that's why you know If a practice true federalism you would help us really Solve problems for people where they are rather than trying to use uniform solutions or national solutions to solve local problems. Which is what has pulled us back over here so maybe now we can start. You know doing those anything's set in short term. You know reforms on medium-term reforms for us to achieve what we need to do as it totally. Now as my giresse foremost think-tank. That's you guys. At the end she What are some of the things that you are doing to make these This happened that is You know looking for 'em local solutions to some of these challenges there be any issue works across twelve policy commissions for the five mighty and three communities of practice. I knew sound like a lot of numbers and a lot of decisions. What these things through. All Saito's economy from agriculture to human capital and think about it. Agriculture has been very effective because a lot of people have had to be at home but even in upper parts of the country where a lot of agricultural things are happening. These people simply produce that he can ship to larger cities and their businesses have been affected profits. We are affected. You know roadblocks on the road and everything happened on. The road has made some of your produce. You Know Rothfusz stop you know before getting into the market you know A friend of mine told me about you. Know Market Women. The cheese she went to the market as a kid has an essential service and provide and salt trucks and trucks on carts of Rotten fruit being thrown away and she was conversation with me and said why can't do things be given out to the people before they you know. So these are ways that we can Solve those problems. As as as a government we are not the government you know at the NASD beyond what we're doing You know it's In many many angles across these sectors that I mentioned currently advocating for short-term media long-term policies that will aid survival of Nigerians. Our modern surviving. That will help them. Thrive through short term. Because you know currently as coronavirus you know then medium-term plant and long-term plan so we're having discussions which will you know Coming to you know would unravel in the near future beyond policies. We have sport several piracy of players to make generous contributions to was a public private partnership to flatten the curve. resources that are now being used to us this current and looming challenges of the future and also it is important to note that Dylan pandemic you know It's quite different from Wendy Spanish flu was there. Or you know all of the other pandemics of the past this different way enabled by technologies time so therefore to tackle the pandemic the as you supported you know eventers platform firm foundations practice of strange which is getting young. You know vibrant innovators to come up with solutions solutions. That can help us solve the challenges of this novel virus. You know. Many of them came on board you. You'll be amazed about many ideas that are people. Are you know the way that you know? Young Nigerians one to execute and change future able to Help if you seven of them one of them imagine what they create novell solution based on technology duck and help contact tracing things that have been adopted by certain state governments now and people are using it to trace context people that are had devised tracing contacts around there. But what are we doing down to use innovative solutions? And these things were created by grown solution so this is very critical is vital. And don't forget when we get through this pandemic which we will. This solutions will not just go today. They'll continue to you. Know Nacho them and use them for all the challenges that confront us in the future so this is the way that we can create made. Niger.
