A commercial ship saved 27 migrants, but now the EU has abandoned it at sea

"U N humanitarian have launched an alert over the plight of migrants rescued by a cargo ship in the Mediterranean Sea which has not been given permission to take them to a European port. The Group of twenty seven people is set to be distraught amid worsening conditions according to the UN Migration Agency. And the UN refugee agency UNHCR it said that they include a child and a pregnant woman and that they've been on board the Maersk at ten for more than a month governments have been refusing permission for the ship to disembark in contravention of international law. The UN agencies said in a joint statement, the absence of a clear safe and predictable disembarkation mechanism for people rescued in the Mediterranean continues to pose avoidable risk to life said our director general Antonio Vitorino echoing his comments. UNHCR chief Filippo Grandi insisted that rescue at sea is a basic humanitarian imperative and that the mask crew unfulfilled them our time obligations and prevented further death in the Mediterranean. The incident is the second time. This year that a merchant vessel has been stranded after caring for people rescued at sea in the Mediterranean in July Talia took four days out of its sheduled journey to care for fifty people who had to wait four days before they were allowed to disembark a safe port.

Where Did COVID Come From?

"The story that we've been told is that the coronavirus cancer bats and jumped in humans sometime late last year at seafood market in the city of Wuhan. China. It's a neat tail, but the problem is nobody actually knows whether it's true and the evidence is mixed, which is why the World Health Organization said over the past few months there has been a lot of discussion about the origins of Covid nineteen. Or preparations have been finalized and experts will be traveling to China this weekend to prepare scientific plans with their Chinese counterparts for identifying the. Sources of the disease the WHO's director. General Federal. Gabriel's speaking there back in. July. The two people that the WHO, which just the advanced party for a much bigger group of scientists leaving soon for hand to start asking hard questions from the WHO Micron, the answers to these questions are sometimes elusive, and it is quite a detective story to find the source and the intermediate pathways by which the virus can breach that barrier to humans. We spent decades trying to do that any bola we spent years trying to do that with Merce and Sarah's it takes time and it does take meticulous multi sectoral approach to this and. We don't know where that species barrier was actually breached. This is very important because unless we understand like anything if the walls of your castle breached, you need to know where the breaches because you can fix and repair that breach. You can make sure that that is strengthened for the future. So we need to understand was the the track of this virus from the wild animal kingdom directly into humans directly through farmed animals directly into a marcus. When Mark Two hundred, we have to keep an open mind science must stay open to all possibilities. In. This program were exploring the. The evidence and the gaps in the evidence will I hear how the virus might have got from animals and into people will talk to scientists who are questioning the time and place it actually emerged and address whether the virus could have actually come from lap. On the very last day of Twenty nineteen China reported an outbreak of a strange pneumonia in cluster of people with links to the local who on live animal and seafood market two weeks. Later, the cause of the onus was identified as a new corona virus. Now named Saws Covy to the causes the syndrome known as COVID. Nineteen. Since. Then thousands of scientific papers have been published on the outbreak including the genetic sequence of the virus which confirms its close relationship to Corona viruses carried by bats, and therefore also gives us a clue as to where this vars came from Dennis. Carroll heads the Global Viral and project the Coruna viruses first and foremost are a family of viruses. We estimate there between four and five thousand different corona viruses and virtually all of the ones that we've discovered to date about two hundred we found in bats in different parts of the World Asia Africa, and in the Americas. Bats well, we don't know why bat except that bats are able to host viruses like corona viruses without themselves, having any adverse effects, and they will periodically shed these viruses in their feces or in their saliva. So they represent sort of an ideal host because a virus when it doesn't affect another animal, the last thing want to do is to kill the animal off its speaks to its own demise as well. So they've developed a very sympathetic relationship with bats over the Millennia. Are you saying that bats of the origin and when you get corona viruses and other species, it represents a jump from a bat into that species at least at some point in time. Well, I. Let's be very clear. We don't have a definitive answer as to how the COVID nineteen virus entered the human population but we've seen enough examples of the virus moving either directly or indirectly from bats that it's the most reasonable explanation. There was some initial speculation to be confirmed that Pangolin. Another wildlife animal that is a food source in China may have acted as a spillover agent, but more work needs to be done to really clarify exactly what the transmission route might've been. One other avenue to pursue is you read genetic code off of a virus and then you go looking in the database to see what is most closely related to because that can sometimes point you in the right direction of West something came from. Walt story emerges when we do that sort of analysis, many of the different corona viruses circulating in these geographic areas do in fact, have a strong genetic relatedness to the covid nineteen genetic profile. So it speaks to a pedigree shared pedigree. So if that's the case, then you make a case of the fact that these viruses are actually pretty common. You can find the across the very diverse patch of China. Why would they emerge in Wuhan? Well. The source is largely bats that are proximal to Wuhan City, and one of the things we know about bats first and foremost is that they have the ability to adapt and share. Living. Space with human populations and so what we've seen in Wuhan as an example, love high interactive dynamics between bat populations possibly again, secondary intermediary hosts with human populations. If we don't bring a human in close proximity to these infected animals, you will not get a spillover.

New Zealand On Alert After 4 Cases Of COVID-19 Emerge From Unknown Source

"New Zealand reports I knew corona virus cases in one hundred two days by Nick Perry. Wellington New Zealand New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinta Arden said Tuesday that. Have found four cases of the corona virus and one offline household from an unknown source. The first reported cases of local transmission in the country in one hundred, two days. Arden said Auckland at the nation's largest city will be moved to alert level three from midday Wednesday through midnight Friday meaning that people will be asked to stay at home while bars and many other businesses will be closed. These three days will give us time to assess the situation gather information. Make sure we have widespread contact tracing. So we can find out more about how this case arose and make decisions about how to respond to it. Once we have further information artem said at a hastily called news conference late Tuesday. I know that this information will be very difficult to receive. Arden. Said we had all hoped not to find ourselves in this position again, but we had also prepared for it and as a team we have also been here before. She said that traveling into Auckland will be banned unless people live there and are traveling home. She said the rest of the country will be raced to level two through Friday meaning that mass gatherings will be limited to one hundred attendees and people would need to socially distance themselves from each other director general of Health Ashley.

Six other people in the person's household were then tested with three more positive results. Importantly, the person has no history of Overseas Travel Bloomfield said adding that the source of the infections remains unknown until Tuesday. The only known cases of the virus in New Zealand were twenty two travelers who had recently returned from abroad and were being held in quarantine at the border. The country has been praised globally for its virus response. New Zealand initially got rid of the virus by imposing a strict lockdown late March when only one hundred people at tested positive for the disease that stopped, it's spread life returned to normal for many people in the Pacific nation of five million as they attended rugby games at packed stadiums and sat down in bars and restaurants without fear of getting infected. But some had warned that the country had become complacent new. Zealanders have never routinely worn masks but authorities have been urging people to buy them just in case.

"Program that already. Yes people take shelter in the cyclone shelters. That is what I have seen from the news. So among the people in very basic Shacks are about a million Hindu refugees who fled the ethnically driven massacres in Myanmar few years ago. And they've been living in this giant refugee camp Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh. What do you know about their situation? Do they have enough. Space to relocate will be list impacted area because it is like you to make landfall to the Western southwest that is in Indiana and border area so coastal area of Cox and Chittagong. I think that it will be affected. So the Rohingya people who are in the ten. I think they'd be impacted so much will be some thunderstorms rainfall. Something like that. What is usual during this time? I've read that across Bangladesh. Some people are hesitant to evacuate. Why do you think that is always in our country? All countries also what? I have seen that. The people don't like to go to the shelter sometimes and many reasons for this and the current is a new at each and it is a new and the pink that sensory not be maintained properly debt that may also among them. This government has requested that the people to use mats and increase the number of shelters piloting some social distance among the people. I just learned today that about forty percent of global storm surges hit Bangladesh. In fact some of the deadliest cyclones of hip long edition the past half-century. As you say now there's corona virus how prepared you think. Bangaldesh really is for the effects of the storm. The people are now than before so this is my thinking that the people will be going to the shelter and also take precautions in this case. Well we are very glad to hear. The precautions are being taken. Shumur Andrea car is a retired director of Bangladesh Meteorological Department. He's been speaking with us from Bangladesh's capital Dhaka Shumur render. Thank you very much. Thank you really as cyclone on pond barrels toward Bangaladeshi in India. There's new evidence this week. Proving that hurricanes and cyclones have gotten more intense over the past for decades. The world's environment correspondent Carolyn. Bieler is here to explain this new link between hurricanes and our warming world. Hey Caroline Hey Marco so we've definitely talked before about the link between hurricanes and climate change and when we did I would say something like hurricanes are expected to grow more intense as the world warms. That's because physics dictates and computer. Modeling also shows that as we add heat to our oceans. An air we're adding more potential energy to storm system so more energy that can turn into higher winds But this week for the first time scientists have been able to actually look back and say that as our world has warmed these hurricanes typhoons or cyclones depending on where you are in the world have already gotten more intense just so how much longer are we talking here so this new study which was published this week. The proceedings of the National Academy of Science showed that every decade for the past four decades basically the likelihood of a hurricane developing into a major hurricane category three or higher has risen about eight percent per decade. So this is something models have shown for years and it makes intuitive sense with the laws of physics. Why is this now just being proved well? It's hard to study hurricanes. There aren't that many of them which makes it hard to draw these big conclusions about them and it's hard to compare storms over the decades and around the world because the way we've studied them has changed. A satellite technology has changed and we also measure them differently in different places around the world so for example in the Atlantic. We still send these hurricane hunting planes into the eyes of hurricanes to measure the wind speeds. That doesn't really happen regularly and other places so the researchers who publish this study had to come up with a way to compare hurricanes and cyclones from forty years ago was ones. That happened just a few years ago and they did that by studying. Things like cloud patterns and infrared temperature readings on satellite images in order to derive these sort of apples to apples comparisons. The world's environment correspond Caroline Bieler. Thanks very much. You're welcome. Nocco Sudan must pay billions of dollars in punitive damages to victims of two bombing attacks in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight at US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that is the ruling from the US Supreme Court this week. The attacks were carried out by al-Qaeda operatives between the two embassies. The bombings killed hundreds of people and wounded thousands of others besides the payment. The court's ruling sends a strong message to governments at sponsor terrorism as the world's Halima Kakande reports. It comes as a Sudanese government is trying to get off the US terrorism list. It was a unanimous decision the US Supreme Court ruled that Sudan must pay more than four billion dollars to hundreds of victims of to terrorist attacks on US embassies in nineteen ninety eight most of the victims were Kenyans and Tanzanians. Who had worked in the embassy's they have been fighting in the courts with the Sudanese government for Years Gabrielle. Maryanne is one of the lawyers representing them. He says Sudan has not paid a single cent so far. Despite previous court rulings attack itself sets off a lifetime of other problems and other stuff rank. You know that they're all connected really. Sudan wants to get off the US list of state sponsors of terrorism. The State Department put the country on the list in nineteen ninety three and now many Sudanese say. Us sanctions tied to that listing or choking the economy Cameron Hudson is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council he also advised the Bush administration on Sudan policy. I think that she has to put these cases behind them once and for all if the requirement is that they have to pay then then that's the requirement that many in Sudan say that the country doesn't have the money to pay billions of dollars in compensation to victims. The government is saddled with large debts. Prime Minister Abdellah. Hamdani is the head of the new civilian lead. Sudanese government he spoke about the terrorism listing during a visit to Washington in December this issue of bidding on so many processes not to mention the debt investment both also opening the country the US State Department says it's working with Sudan to figure out a way to meet these obligations. Here's Assistant Secretary for African affairs. Tibor nausea in January. There are some thorny issues involved with have to be overcome we want accessible Sudan. We want to be partners for sedan so we are working together along the lawyers representing the victims of the embassy. Bombing say they're worried Gabrielle. Marion at tells me that the US has proposed a tiered payment system foreign nationals. Who worked at the embassies he says would receive less than ten percent of what American victims are expecting and he says that includes foreign nationals who have since become American citizens. It's going to be to discriminate against a against African Americans and Africans is gone and and pay US citizens ten million dollars and those guys either nothing or you know a couple hundred thousand State Department officials sent me an email today that said has reached a preliminary agreement with Sudan to settle. These claims that agreement been sent to Congress it would provide compensation to both US citizens and noncitizens. But it didn't say how much Cameron Hudson from the Atlantic Council says. The trump administration is trying to strike a balance between supporting New Democracy in Sudan and holding the government. They're accountable. There is a risk that Sudan will continue to keep this tied up in in courts. There's an opportunity to get some payment. Now you've waited twenty years to get anything. Any final deal on those financial claims would need to be passed in Congress for the world. I'm Halima condie seventy five years ago. The Globe was emerging from the second world. War countries came together to create a global organization that they hoped would prevent human rights atrocities from happening. Again I'm talking of course about the United Nations.

The world's Rupa Shaw has more corona virus pandemic forced the United Nations to hold its seventy fifth anniversary people's Forum online allowing for what might have been the biggest conversation ever about the way the UN works. Some two thousand officials activists and advocates from dozens of countries attended and from the outset. One theme was clear. The UN hasn't been effective enough in getting governments to work together. Under Obama is founder of Democracy Without Borders Germany. Battle lines are shaping with some seeing an opportunity to feed nationalism xenophobia and focus on one's own country my country my government might might people and forget about the rest of the world. Several speakers pointed out that countries. With nationalist agendas were spreading disinformation on social media and marginalizing. The people who advocate for global solutions to global problems like climate change and the current pandemic song young noon is you and representative for the International Alliance for women. We are experiencing an assault on science an assault against our UN agencies like who and all processes like Paris climate accord not only has the UN struggled to corral nations to work together. It's also struggled to hold individual nations accountable for human rights abuses Amelia rays of the organization. Equa the handle. Mexico said that the U. N. Investigators who document these abuses are often ignored. The UN system is actually undermining on dismissing the recommendation of all of these very powerful human rights You entrepreneurs many argued that current structure of the UN isn't actually serving people. It's serving governments bridget. Burns is director of the women's Environment and Development Organisation in New York really the UN right now doesn't feel fit for serving the global good as opposed to serving the interests of nation states nation states. That aren't necessarily interested in protecting poor people or the environment fergus. Watt is executive director of the World Federalist Movement Canada. P Like many others suggested the UN invite more citizen engagement. Perhaps it's time that we think about ways that we can lift up the role of citizens representatives at the UN want a new system of elected citizen representatives who would take part in UN deliberations and have direct input perhaps through new technology but Silvio Gonzalvo head of the European Union delegation to the UN cautioned. There would be challenges to more citizen involvement. He said that some countries have opposed their citizens being admitted to UN conferences. In the past we'd be siging for keeping these conferences open to civil society. Osama member states do not agree with that they want to be able to object. We want objection poses to be as transparent as possible the UN General Assembly will consider that change and others that might increase that is an involvement over the next month.

"Slash freakonomics. Roberto Vado director, general of the World Trade Organization was appointed to the post in two thousand thirteen when the trade waters were considerably less choppy than they are today. So you were from Brazil and you studied electrical engineering before becoming a diplomat. I'd like to just very quickly here those three factors, Brazilian engineering and being a career diplomat how they inform your role as director general of the WTO Brazilian. Well, the good thing about being a Brazilian is that it gives me a very diverse perspective. Brazil has is a big economy. It's a big country with several ethnicities, very diverse cultural background, and it has aspect of a developed nation, very sophisticated industry, but also has important aspects of of developing countries, social. Challenges, and that gives me this different perspective engineer. I was always good with numbers, and I think it was natural for me to become an engineer. It was until I met my wife and she decided to get into the diplomatic career. And at that point in time I had to decide, you know, what would I do an engineer merit to a diplomat was going to be pretty challenging, especially when she was posted abroad. So I thought, you know what? Let's let's work for the family. So I took the the exams and I passed the exams and I joined the diplomatic career. I think that was a love star in its own rights. Can you give me a quick example of an engineering lake solution to trade or economic problem? So when I'm in a meeting or something like that, tried to understand the basic motivations in and then figure out a way. To make those motivations were together. And that's something I think that engineers do try to get very complex situations and problems try to reduce them to their mental constitutive part and figure out a way to make them work. Personal chemistry is very important as well. Even between the gauche eaters. I know some people think that everything you need to know your learning kindergarten. And I think that's that's quite accurate. But I, I found out that you're forever learning how to re relate to people how to take into account it, diverse personalities, cultures, objectives. So as long as the world still has independent nations and it seems that'll be the case released another few decades. We're not becoming one big global nation. It strikes me that there's an inherent friction around trade. In which every country has to strike a balance between protectionism and globalism. So I'm curious whether you agree or disagree with this notion and however you answer what's to be done about that. This stink tion that exists even today with regard to trade, it always existed countries that do trade and that have a cooperative relationship with other partners. They essentially gained from that. But it is also a reality that when you trade some sectors in the domestic economy will lose many gain. Many are better off with the with the trading relationship, but that some lose in the sense that they're not competitive enough. Sometimes the factories close in particular sector and you cannot ignore that. I think what you see today is something different. From this very traditional, very historic tension. Today, we are seeing a transformation of the economic structure of the global economy with producing things differently. We're producing things faster. We don't require as much human input as we did before, and this is increasing. Now. Clearly even for governments in football of Titians. It is easier to blame, you know, the foreign for these problems which are happening inside their own economies. It's easier to blame the imports for the loss of jobs when they are. They have a role of course, but they're minor in this structural change. And I think if we don't realize that and if we don't try to find a solution for this will be hurting much more than help it. Okay. So you've just described? I would argue beautifully and succinctly a big problem. That of course, a lot of economists and some others have described, but you're right, that's not the political rhetoric. So it's easy to think of what's the wrong medicine. How involved is the WTO in trying to discover and administer the right medicine? I think the WTO is already at least trying to help governments and public opinion to understand the situation and reach the right diagnosis. If we get the wrong diagnoses, you get definitely the wrong medicine. The important thing to understand is that whatever medicine we choose, it's not going to work overnight. There is no quick fix for this..
