"End the drought cameron. Slow slow and steady. We hope so to mark the corona virus has led to a lot of fear especially for doctors and other medical workers battling it spread in China. Working conditions for medical professionals are becoming more hazardous in Hong Kong. The ones at the front lines in the fight are standing up to the authorities. This past week's a medical workers there went on strike. McLaughlin is a Hong Kong based contributing writer for the Atlantic magazine and has has been following the strike. Tim What were the strikers actually demanding the big to where one a closure of the border between Hong Kong and mainland China and then the second one was a quarantine period for Hong Kong residents were permanent residents of Hong Kong Since returning for the mainland to be put on a quarantine period of fourteen fourteen days which are using a lot of other countries. Those were the two big ones that day were demanding during the strike and how have Hong Kong authorities responded and why did the strike conclude today the government will not admit it. I don't think ever but This strike in terms of effectiveness. It didn't force a full closure of the border but certainly effective in getting being demand met about the quarantine period and also having the government drastically reduce the number of crossing points that are open between the mainland and Hong Kong so they took a vote in very slim margin decided to discontinue had been going off the five days overall like digital force from the new organized Labor Front here and also definitely pushed the government whether or not the government will admit that but Certainly seemed to get some results. What did we hear from The Chief Executive of Hong Kong Carrie Lam on this. How did she respond? She called take kind of hasty press conference a few days ago where she did decide to close more points more stringent checks holdem thinking in humping hoping war and again didn't say it was from political pressure. Didn't say that you came from the Union. However if you look at a time line and you look at it was going lot? It's tough to think that they didn't have an impact and also I should say that huge public support for the strike and for the border closure said there was about eighty percent of people polled recent survey where in favor of closing the border entirely early in sixty one percent of people hold in survey were in favor of the medical strike so huge participant between both of those issues so as he said the pro democracy democracy protests last summer blasted some energy into Hong Kong's labor movement. What did Union Organization look like in Hong Kong before the protests? And how has labor solidarity evolved over the past year has unique situation you know. The Pro Democracy Movement gave rise to around two dozen unions that have been formed end of last year into this year. More people realize that if they can organize labor if they could hold strikes. It's kind of a new tactic rather than just protesting on the street. Where they the force change? We're trying to drive their agenda in a new way that they haven't been doing before and it's been huge interest huge turnout for these unions January first we sound like a huge drive to get to signed up so like I said about two dozen in county that have formed recently. Imagine that number will go up. I mean given the semi autonomous status of Hong Kong aren't strikers taking taking a risk. There absolutely risk here you know. I think the institutions in Hong Kong the Civil Service the Hospital Authority the hospitals themselves. Nothing has been. Dan spared from the protest movement. It is very clear that there's been retaliation for people. Having certain positions or for holding views on the Pro Democracy Movement. They could lose their jobs if they could lose promotions. All that kind of stuff could have happened so a lot of people don't WANNA use their full names be identified. But here's what a medical worker Sam chance will be about why he was out striking.

"Them down by the way. We don't need them. We found that we were in office in fact if you decided we. Finally Ali got things under control. We said if you say you have to report back for hearing on such and such date people show up Biden's referring to the fact that imigrants. Grins let out of detention with ankle monitors on do tend to show up to their court hearings but under trump trying to shut down immigration. Detention is is an easy just days before the California law went into effect ice signed new long term contracts worth billions of dollars with three private prison companies including the GEO group. There is now a legal battle over. This ice. Didn't respond to interview request but ICE officials have have criticized initiatives like California's saying they only make it harder for the agency to do. Its job just because you're not a criminal alien. It doesn't mean we shouldn't enforce the law. Mark Morgan was acting ice director last year. He spoke to the PBS Newshour. And once you get here if nothing ever happens to you. The pull factor is unbelievable. They're going to keep coming ice also says If it's agents can't detain immigrants in California they will detain people all and open new detention facilities elsewhere. The states of Texas and Louisiana for example allow private companies to run detention facilities as a dea. Shush honey is based in Atlanta with project south which advocates for immigrants. Yeah I very much hope that other taste will follow suit but the reality is that in the short term. At least I think the private prison corporations will go to states and regions of of the country. Where they feel that they're gonNA find the least amount to operate systems and that typically ends up being the US south immigrant rights Advocates say they're encouraged however to see other states taking similar steps to California's Illinois just put restrictions on privately run immigration detention attention and lawmakers in both Minnesota and New Mexico are also debating similar proposals for the world. Monica Campbell. Most most of the migrants coming to the US are from Central America further south in Venezuela. There's another type of migration crisis millions fleeing a collapsing economy and political critical system. You'll recall that Venezuelan opposition leader one. Guido was a guest at President. Trump's state of the union earlier this week today Russia made its feelings things clear on who should run Venezuela Russian foreign minister. Sergei Lavrov is in Caracas meeting with Venezuelan president. Nicolas Maduro Russia's economic and political backing has helped Maduro hang onto power. Jeff Cough is with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He's the deputy director of the Russia and Eurasia program the Russian energy sector particularly Rosneft which is the state owned. Russian energy. Company has been doing business in for a long time but because of the U. S. embargo because of the confrontation between the US and the Modesto government. Venezuela's become more reliant on Russia and on thus neft both politically and economically. So now you know us. NEFT is increasingly important conduit for Venezuela to export its oil and for Russia. Oh that's both politically and economically valuable. Venezuela has few other options so it has to rely on us for an increasing percentage of its exports which means that Rusnak can dictate price and is doing so in a way that is very beneficial for the company and for Russia. So what do you think is on the agenda for the meeting. With Russian Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Madero I think it has both economic and political implications economically to discuss Russian support which includes not not only the exporting of Venezuelan oil but also investment in production Russia loans various other kinds of financial assistance but also. It's about sending a message edge to the United States to Guido. That Madonna has Russian backing Lebanon. His doing kind of Western Hemisphere tour this week. He was in Mexico Cuba Venezuela and this comes on the heels of Secretary of State pompeo visiting Several states in the former Soviet Union Belarus Ukraine couple of the Central Asian states and so on the Russian side. There's a little bit of a message to Washington that if you WANNA play around in our backyard we we can play around in your backyard reading the reports on all of this. I mean the rhetoric about Venezuela seems like a Cold War throwback the US seeing Russia's a supporter of the socialist proxy Venezuela Russia seeing US military pressure in the imperialist light how closely Russia's in the United States goals with Venezuela. Really the same. Well they're the same. In the sense that they both have ulterior economic motives but they're pretty diametrically opposed on the political question about whether Modesto Stays or goes you know the. US position is that his reelection was fraudulent. That he's no longer legitimate. US recognizes. Guido who is at the State of the Union the other night night Russia's position is this is an internal than a soil on a fair the. US should be dictating. Who is and isn't the legitimate president of a foreign country in it's also also standing by meadow in much the same way that it stood by other authoritarian leaders around the world like the Charlotte Saad for instance? So just just is help us understand what Putin's endgame visit Venezuela. You know. It's hard to say I think with the Russians. There's often a spectrum of acceptable outcomes on the lower end then. It's probably to make much money off of Madonna's predicament as possible while the getting is good at the maximum. I think it's to gain kind kind of a toehold in Venezuela would allow it to be more influential in a part of the world that the United States does consider. Its own backyard. I don't think if the Russians are going to set up military bases in Venezuela. But you could certainly see scenarios under which you've got Russian private military contractors a larger dramatic VATA presence in Russia kind of using that as a tool to promote a kind of counter. US access in the Western Hemisphere. which as you noted did but look very similar to what the so union detrimental the cold or jeff make off with the Center for Strategic and International Studies? Thank you for your time sheriff. Extravagantly locusts are swarming over large areas of Africa in Asia. They're spread out over ten countries threatening the food. Supply of millions of people in places like Ethiopia copious Kenya and Somalia countries that have been impacted are asking for tens of millions of dollars in international aid to protect the upcoming spring harvest without large-scale scale interventions. The swarms could grow by five hundred fold. Come June the representative from the US Food and Agricultural Organisation to Ethiopia. Fight to say to joins joins me. What is the situation on the ground? How the swarms been affecting Ethiopian? Farmers and herders swarms are unfortunately affecting took took in farmers and pastoralists. The government has been battling to control the swarm since June. They have tried and they have applied had all the resources but the now the swarms are increasing they are very large and reproduction is high. So the government capacity bussey is very much stretched. What does look damage? Actually look like look if you go to a field. What will swarm of locus of done do it? As a local community lands in a field within hours can eat almost everything to give you an idea a locus form that he's as as large as one square kilometer can eat they quivalent over full of thirty five thousand people. Wow so the. FAO was asking for seventy six million dollars from the international community to deal with this. How will that money actually use that is mainly for rapid upscale of air unground control meaning more planes more flying hours Biscedie side to spray ground team and vehicles to spray as well as Impact assessment on the pasture farmland and cropland so that we are also anticipating how to rapidly. We help these people to recover if we look specifically at Somali a the unstable security situation. There means that planes can't be used to spray pesticides pesticides. I would imagine. So if locus know no borders. How you're gonNA manage the challenge of working in a place like Somalia? That is a challenge for Somalia. I'm I'm I'm based in the NFL representative to talk. Every if your representative is working working with the government at our level to do the most we can with the different techniques in the different areas so in Topeka we are unfortunately enough to up skin both air and ground control operation and we hope by doing so and maximizing the control induced to countries we would be able to minimize the damage. Scientists are saying the climate change Unusually wet weather has made the locust problem worse. However you you looking forward to the future to prevent more swarms it fail is always encouraging government to engage in preventive control preventive controller? It means that engage in surveillance. We know when the locus start to gather and form swarms but while they are not yet flying but just breath without the wings. And that's the best time to control. The swarms are much smaller soul. That's the best way to control the locus. Goose is immediately to react and government must be equipped.

"Marco Werman you're with the world where co production of the BBC World Service W. H. Boston Npr X.. The United States runs the largest immigration detention system in the world. It's been growing for years years under both Democratic and Republican administrations but under president trump it reached peak capacity last summer. Fifty thousand people were held in detention including including children. California wants no part of this and a new state. Law is aimed at shrinking. The system. The world's Monica Campbell has our story this young woman and from Guatemala says. She never thought she'd be locked up for so long. It's been one year and one month. She says she's he's not counting the days at this point rather the months for using her last name only the Sunday because of the uncertainty of her case we in in two thousand eighteen vicinity says she fled an abusive partner in Guatemala. He was threatening to kill her so she ran away in the middle of the night. She put her three kids in her sister's care and went north. The plan was to reunite with them eventually in the United States but when sent a asked for asylum the border U S officials took her to a detention center north of Los Angeles where I talked to her by phone immigrants. Detained for long periods of time isn't new but under the trump administration time spent in detention is getting even longer longer. Lisa knocks is immigration lawyer at the firm representing visit the case. I think her case a really illustrates how everything is just intentionally more difficult and takes longer in in the system that we have a trump administration. Knox also points to another change under trump when it it comes to who is detained before a judge might release someone like Dante with an ankle monitor in a court date. The idea was she hasn't committed a crime. So why keep her any jail like setting. But that's happening less now we've seen more and more asylum seekers who instead of being in detention for the week or two are spending four five six months in detention. Ice Is also detaining more undocumented immigrants who've lived for years in the US with no criminal history it's part of the trump administration's push to detain a wider swath of people but California is pushing back a new state. Eight law went into effect last month to ban both privately run prisons and immigration detention centres. gristle reese is a lawyer at the immigrant. Emigrant Legal Resource Center based in San Francisco. The nonprofit helped push for the new California law. It's so important for us to think outside of the box and really think about how can tear down this system and not simply to work within it and work to reform it reese points to reports of abuse at detention centers. Government inspectors have described rotten food and unsanitary bathrooms. They're also investigations into several deaths of detainees. Six people have died in ice custody today since October. And the reports often highlight the high rate of abuse at privately run facilities one of the biggest private prison companies the Geo Oh group turned down and interview request for the story but a spokesperson emailed a statement saying that the company is required to meet government standards but that it plays no role in creating them seals. Inca you I think winter. The woman in detention from Guatemala tells me how she sleeps in a bunk bed in a room with one hundred other women she spends up to twenty two hours a day inside Annoy Otilia kind of thing. She says speaking on the phone with her kids. It keeps your strong the other day. She says colder daughter told her. Don't come home mom. I know white left. Democratic presidential candidates say they want to shrink the number of detention centers. Here's former vice president. Joe Biden speaking at a rally in North Carolina. Hose.

This shouldn't be written up some sort of exotic red line from Shin Vein Vein. This is an absolute necessity. I have to tell you I cannot understand. Political leaders political parties who who refuse is to see losses in plain Sykes and that is the change is happening this issue. This needs to be done and I think to start now. So as she said there if Shin Fain and get into government they will push for a referendum to be held within the next five years. So what does this mean for the current Prime Minister Leo Varadkar. He was seen as is the new face of Ireland son of Indian immigrant openly gay. Is this time over. Yeah and in the sense that that image that you portray him very much worked for him abroad and perhaps doesn't work as well at home so you know abroad. He cuts of very fine figure on the international stage. He's articulacy looks good. He's yelling. He mixes well with the other European leaders But back home. There's a sense that he concentrated so much on international affairs and so much on Brexit that he took his eye off off the ball when it came to the bread and butter issues when it came to the issues like housing and rent prices. Anyone who's in Dublin will tell you that rents rents have gone through the roof The people felt that he just wasn't taking note of things that were really happening on the ground and the day to day problems that people were facing so while he was doing quite well internationally. Maybe it's not gonNA work so well for him at home. Well it's not over until the voters sing and we'll find out what happens This weekend I guess the world's Berry in London thank you very much. Thanks Marco. NOCCO people in Switzerland are also going to the polls this weekend. The big question facing voters.

How modern our country is it might be rich but concerning LGBT rights? It's really not modern and yet that's still ahead right here on the world. I'm Marco Werman. This is the world. Say the words Xinfang Vein and you might think of the hardline. Irish Nationalist Party a party associated with the terror group the IRA in Northern Ireland but in vain is now a big player in the Republic of Ireland quick geography reminder that is the independent Ireland on the southern side of the Emerald Isle for decades to center right parties have dominated politics there but new opinion polls show Shin Fain in the lead on the eve of a general election tomorrow. I asked the world's Orla Barry London about this shakeup in Irish politics. It's it's a real shock marco traditionally as you said we have these two center right. Parties Phoenix Phoenix Sale. They're the ones who've been battling it out sharing power back back and forth for the last essentially hundred years since independence in the nineteen twenties from Britain and to see Shin Fain come ahead like this in the most recent recent poll last weekend really took everyone by surprise. These are the highest polling numbers at the party has ever received since entering the Irish parliament decades ago go it should by the way. Come with a caveat though because Xinfeng often do quite well in polls and then on election day vote often collapses. Is there a sense that maybe this selection will be different. I mean how has fain managed to kind of get to the top of the polls and who's it appealing to a lot of. The reason is thanks to the party leader to Mary. Lou McDonald because prior prior to this the IRA was always closely associated with champagne. But Mary Lou. McDonald is a very different character. She's a woman who was born in Dublin cheese WH- WHOA from a wealthy part of Dublin. Well educated and a woman first of all the traditional in fame voter has usually been northern. That you should be Mayo Eh. Quite nationalist quite working class Mary. Lou has come in and sort of positioned herself as much more middle class voter appealing to people on issues like housing issues like healthcare and also she's being positioning Shin Fain basically as the alternative to the mainstream parties as the alternative to fina fallen feeding gale. Have a listen to her. She was on the TV the other night in a TV debate. The team of this election that has emerged as a thirst for change. I'm very clear about the change means everywhere that I have gone. People have said to me that they they recognize that Fiona Fallen Finna gave essentially identical. Piracy's had it all their own way now for almost two century so if a party election fain gets into government in the republic violent I mean what would that mean for this dream stream for some people of a united Ireland bring together Northern Ireland and the Republic of yeah.

"To Cassia? I deeply regret his death and feel sincerely shot for him. We need to see the impact of his death can shake up anything. I hope he did not not die in vain your third year. He left us when we needed him to fight the virus and he was a victim of it too. Do in the meantime. He was criticized and unfairly treated because of his report. So we feel very sad and regretful. No appeal totally clear on windows eager. The he was the first one who found out about the virus but then received a reprimand from the police. I think people I still don't have enough sense of the potential threat from this virus. Remarkably the speakers also gave their names. The government has been accused of delaying the news of Dr Lee's death author or covering it up but at a news conference. In the capital. A spokeswoman for the Chinese Health Commission insisted the authorities had battled to save him. They show joins Dr Lee when young from Wuhan died from pneumonia caused by novel corona virus during the fight against the epidemic after a great effort to save him unfortunately he passed away. The National Health Commission expresses its deep sorrow and we send our heartfelt condolences his to his family. y-yo Wong has been keeping track of the comments on China's social media about the death of Dr Lee Wong as China researcher at Human Rights Watch. She told me what she's been reading online. Just a outpointing savviness and a allocated towards the government's handling of the crisis was just so so obvious. I haven't seen this level of anger in many years so I think people are very angry with the government for initially hiding inflammation fund the public and punishing people would try to raise awareness about the issue. So you can just see how people have all this pent up anger and now they're really offending out and the Chinese government stepped in to try to shut down on the conversation on way. What what was Beijing actually able to do? It's so clear I I mean. There are so many messages then. They're gone in minutes. So if you actually are using social media last night didn't you can clearly feel that it. Essentially is really increasing testing and the government tried to control the composition. So one part of the story is You kind of summed. It Up is that Dr Lee had been reprimanded by Chinese police after. Share those concerns about the virus with a medical school classmate on which at that scolding that shutting down someone trying to tell the truth is that also part of what's been resonating so strongly among Chinese citizens assumes absolutely. I mean what he was doing just you know he was being a doctor. He tried to warn his colleagues about this situation. So this is something like anybody who has decency do do so he. He wasn't an activist type. He was just a normal person. Normal doctor was good conscious. So people feel that you know this could happen to anybody. Anybody could pete punished for just speaking truth. Just two colleagues but as you say you've never seen a level of this anger kind of just going forth publicly on social media. Can you just give us a sense of how social media in China work specifically way Wa is everything expressed on Web wa by Chinese citizens being monitored and censored by Chinese authorities. Just how independent is is way ball. I mean we boy is a private company so they do the censorship according their own news but they also take orders from the Chinese government so this two aspects of the censorship. Yeah I mean I've seen dismantle the angers there and censorship is coming very quickly. I mean this. This is a outbreak a crisis that is affecting almost everybody in China. So everybody's involved so so. It sounds like some way while employs essentially government bureaucrat. Light it but I mean that can't be everybody. Do you know anything about the people who actually are inside way Wa who are moderating what they see and are they becoming more rebellious I would say that they become more rebellious. I've interviewed people who were assessors for. We almost answers so I would say you know that the control over the sensors are actually getting tighter. There's more restrictive on what they do. For example there like a surveillance inside the Censorship Department of often associated media companies. So if you take a screen shot off your computer that would it be money to buy the company and we'd be punished severely while so the sensors inside the company are being censored themselves. Yes what kind of dilemma does this. Current situation present for the Chinese government to censor or not censor when the whole world is watching coaching. I think about one week ago. There are a lot of local journalists who worked for the Chinese media commercial media. They did a great job in reporting the virus. They went to Han so I think at that time there was a kind of appear that censorship was. Not that tight I think for the central government. They wanted to get the truth to but then they immediately Saraceno people very angry in their this outpouring of anger so they try to tighten the control of the media so today I mean Proceedings about Dr Lee. Are they still being censored and being raised. Yes I mean. There's still a lot of anger and a lot of censorship. So if you use the social media you can just clearly feel it so I know there is like a long list of terms. Search terms that way what cifs out like Winnie the Pooh often kind of a symbol for Xi Jinping Gentlemen obviously tank man is corona virus and Dr Lee. Now on that list not invite US individually per se but a lot of people. Now they're having a Hashtag tag. I demand free speech. I want free speech and those phrases are either censored or unsearchable so the government or we bought a company are taking taking actions towards people's demand for human rights. Iota Wong a China researcher at human rights. Watch thank you very much your time today. Thank you for having me. One thing's for sure about this corona virus outbreak. It is a global challenge in needs a coordinated global response today. US officials pledged up to one hundred million dollars in funding for China and the World Health Organization the US was already engaged in the effort to prevent and contain outbreaks abroad one of the agencies. That's taken the lead is a US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in recent years the CDC has expanded its operations globally precisely to combat these sorts of threats. But as the world's Alana Lana Gordon reports. The agency is also facing some threats of its own. Here's the thing to know about disease prevention and control. It really doesn't get much public attention when everything seems normal the when a crisis hits that's a whole different story. Jennifer nozoe is with the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins University. She Aziza pattern that dates back to the very beginning of the agency itself. Many people don't know up that. CDC's Epidemic Intelligence Service the ES program there the subject of movies often. So they're the disease detectives. You often see investigating into movies like contagion and that program was actually started in response. Wants to concerns about the Korean War and concerns that there may be a misuse of a biological agent. Scary stuff but does it says it was this fear of biological warfare that led to the creation of a global powerhouse to combat the spread of illnesses those US disease detectives who worked to identify pathogens Athens and contain outbreaks and that was just the start for the CDC moving into the nineteen nineties. It took on a bigger role there was HIV and then September September eleventh. Two thousand one. The nine eleven event really took city. See you might say from the traditional nineteen seventies eighties public health approach to WANNA the need for emergency global response. Dr Michael Oester home is director of Infectious Disease Research at the University of Minnesota And he was called in post nine eleven to work with the CDC on the threat of bioterrorism during that time he says the CDC really organized into a single coordinated needed force monitoring diseases around the globe it also expanded its physical presence with us. Scientists working all over the world to get ahead of potential biological threats. Let's but many experts say the CDC's real global moment came in the aftermath of a new and deadly illness that emerged in China and spread SARS. There's or severe acute respiratory syndrome infected thousands and killed hundreds of people in two thousand three Clare. Stanley is global health security specialist at Georgetown. The University so in Sarah's one of the challenges was information sharing so although cases were detected information wasn't shared and so people traveled to different places who were infected and without that information sharing cases got out of control and they didn't know very much about the infection pathways at first And so there was a lot of secondary healthcare worker infection and the systems just weren't in place that's when the World Health Organization established emergency rules for responding to outbreaks like SARS. It was a wakeup call to national governments. Let's get more coordinated across borders and to prepare for the next big threat and the last fifteen years the CDC has played a leading role in training disease. Detectives across across the Globe and helping local governments build their own centers for Disease Control that included China. But Beth Cameron says the agency's efforts had major ager blind spots. She's a global health expert. Who's done a lot of work with the? CBC Cameron says the Ebola outbreak in twenty fourteen was a moment of reckoning coming in West Africa. Unfortunately over eleven thousand people lost their lives which occurred In place that had not seen Ebola before and where there there wasn't preparedness programs in place from the US government or others to assist those affected countries. Cameron says Congress reacted to the ABOL crisis assist with billions of dollars in new funding with that the CDC expanded its efforts especially in Africa and Asia and Cameron was in the thick of it. She served on the National Security Council staff and worked with the Obama White House. But then that old pattern kicked in the panic subsided. The one time funding for Coppola outbreak had an expiration date. Cameron says that jeopardize the CDC's global operations so that provides uncertainty and countries ability eight to prevent detect and responsive disease. That's countries like Vietnam. Indonesia India burkina-fasso countries like Mali. Then in two two thousand seventeen. The trump administration dissolved key leadership posts and global preparedness the administration also proposed deeper funding cuts for the CDC. But so far it's been spared by Congress. The work that was done in those five years was great work but kind of like the scaffolding for a building if the building doesn't get built brick by brick in between that scaffolding it will follow the emergence of this new corona virus means. We're finding ourselves in yet another moment of more fear more urgency the CDC disease detectives are working with others around the globe to coordinate to strengthen labs and with that the agency's own own capacity to rapidly. Respond is once again in the spotlight. The White House recently created a Special Task Force Cameron and other global health specialists. Say the key to getting ahead is breaking that cycle of reactivity and cemented those walls so to speak before a crisis hits for the world. I'm Alana Gordon.

Coronavirus Whistleblower Doctor's Death Sparks Anger in China

"Li Wen Liang a thirty three year. Old Doctor in Wuhan died yesterday. He was initially reprimanded for warning about the new corona virus this before he eventually contracted it himself. Are Deputy China Bureau chief. Josh chance has been following the story so Josh can you tell me more about him. How did he see? I come to attention right so Li it was almost totally unknown before. The outbreak happened in Wuhan and he came to attention engine because it emerged that he was one of several doctors who had gotten in trouble early on in the outbreak. Break out before people knew how serious it was for disseminating information about it and he came out and basically revealed that that he had been criticized by his hospital and by the police for talking about this and then was later infected while treating a patient which proved that it had. The virus was transmitted between people. which at the time officials had not yet admitted so he became famous as example of how? Oh the government and the government in Wuhan was not being forthcoming with information. You save famous. What do you mean I will? He did an interview with the Beijing. Can you daily Communist Party run newspaper fairly early on allowed sort of late last month and that blew up because it revealed the efforts to control information or or cover up information about the seriousness of epidemic. When Oliver ricocheted ashamed all over social media and he sort of instantly became this folk hero especially after people realised that he he also himself contracted the virus? What's been the reaction to his death? It's been unbelievable. It's been you know everyone who is on social media in China is talking about this. Hundreds of millions of posts and people are really the sad. They're angry and I haven't really seen anything quite like this. For many many years in China where you have almost everyone sort of united in a single feeling in the sense of frustration and anger like this. And what has the government said in response to this outpouring is so the government response has been a little bit inconsistent and confusing which which is sort of in keeping with their response to the outbreak. In general so late last night state media on twitter the war among the first people do report that Lee had died. they called him a whistle blower And we're sort of honoring him and then and later as it became less clear of whether he had he'd actually died Whether you know when the hospital was saying that they were still trying to save him State media then took out its posts We heard that Propaganda Department in Beijing at order journalists not to report on his death and they were trying to control it. It seems like Lee's death is a catalyst for a lot of frustration that people have in China about the government's government's response to this new corona virus. Is that right. I think that's exactly right. I think Lee has That is really sort of unleashed a lot out of the pent up frustration. That people have felt about the way the government has handled this in particular its lack of transparency in its in its failure would be forthcoming about. Just how how dangerous. This virus was the fact that it was Transmitting between people much earlier than than everyone was aware. And so you know I think eight people feel like the sense of betrayal. You know one of the things. They've been saying online with regard to lease. There's a saying Chinese. You can't let the person who goes out
