"College in New York. Martin thank you so much. Thank you very much. Some government officials. Mexico are pushing back against the president's plans to reopen parts of the economy go but nineteen cases are surging in the country and health officials acknowledge the death toll may be even higher than their calculating. Npr's Carrie. Kahn joins us now from Mexico City and carry. Tell us about this pushback from some of those local health officials. They're they're not reopening as the president said they should well there around three hundred municipalities on this list. There called towns of hope where they haven't had any covid cases but the majority of them are in the southern states like Oaxaca and the governor there said now is not the time to reopen. Some of these towns are very in very poor areas and they don't have any health facilities. They closed up early knowing that they couldn't handle the any sort of outbreak. You've also heard similar comments from governors and other states around the country. They seem not so eager to open up especially to start up schools. You laid out some of those rural areas and some of the challenges they're dealing with. How bad is the corona virus situation and the country overall it? It's getting bad so far. There's over fifty thousand confirmed cases and deaths or creeping up to about six thousand. But you have to keep in mind when you hear all these numbers that Mexico is not doing a lot of testing this is the country of about one hundred and twenty five million and they've only done about one hundred and fifty thousand tests dates. That's one of the lowest testing rates in the world. I went out recently and I went to the General Hospital here and I do talk to nurses and doctors around the country and you know they're exhausted. They're sad watching so many deaths than they're worried. One of their biggest worries is whether they'll still have equipment in protective gear to to last them to outbreak. So there's a lot of concern and a lot of independent media reporting that the undercount of especially the dead here in Mexico City One report showed a database of suspected. Death That could be three times lower than than people that are really have died of. Covid officials even acknowledge that you know bureaucratic lag times and minimal testing of led to and undertake given all of this. Why is the president suggesting the country reopened backup? Well it's not the total that the whole country opening it's just a few counties Were there is no virus but in places where there have been virus outbreaks and there are key industries. He's saying it's time to open up and those key. Industries are construction mining and especially the auto factories here there key in the US Mexico supply chain for the auto industry and he's under a lot of pressure from the US to open up those key industries for the supply chain. He's also under a lot of pressure at home because the economy is tanking fast here so it's a combination of the two the pressure from the US and also his own ideas. That the lockdown isn't really Strategically needed and it may be doing more harm to the poor in the country by taking away their economic activity than the virus itself. But you've reported that there have been covert nineteen cases in some of these plants that supply. Us businesses some workers have even died. Yeah it's it's a difficult situation especially in the Makila. The manufacturing plants up at the border there have been dozens of deaths. Reported there The President says what the companies will now have to do as promise to monitor all employees going in and out like temperature taking and providing masks and goggles but the government is outright. Saying that they're just trusting the companies to comply and will only randomly inspect so we're going to have to watch carefully how this limited reopening goes about that's NPR's Carrie Kahn. Mexico City Kerry. Thank you so much. You're welcome. Thanks for having me. Connecticut begins its first phase of reopening. Today restaurants can now offer dining outdoors only malls stores and offices can reopen with some restrictions democratic governor. Ned Lamont won't allow salons and Barbara's to open yet. He said workers told him they weren't ready with protection or childcare and eleven state. Senators asked the governor to delay the whole reopening to get more testing and preparation democratic state senators sued. Anwar was one of them. He's also frontline doctor. So Senator Dr. Welcome. Thank you so much for having me. Robyn and talk about your concern about the state opening because Governor. Lamont says there's been a nearly four week drop in the number of hospitalizations from covid nineteen. He said the state is fifty three percent below the peak. What are your biggest fears robin? I I wanted to mention that. I think the governor and his team are doing an excellent job in very difficult circumstances. I can tell you the over arching issues that I think are worthy to consider. The state of Connecticut is one of the fourth most densely populated states in the country the case fatality rate. Which means that. The number of people who got infected and the number of people who died is the highest in the country. You mean neighboring New York by the way a lot of people from New York live in Connecticut more people who get sick in Connecticut die from covid nineteen and even you know the same equation in New York. Yes New York and New Jersey if you look at the numbers. So the case fatality rate basically is the total number of people who develop the disease and the told number people who have died from the disease so the death row divided by the total cases. Multiply that by one hundred. That's the case fatality rate New York and New Jersey are behind us and is it fair to say that's because in Connecticut I think. Fifty percent of your tragic deaths have come from people in nursing homes that through an and we are the sixth moisture older state in the in the country and then the next point is that the healthcare disparities in the state of Connecticut are much higher Then we have in other states we have some of the richest and the most floor neighborhoods and about ten minute drive from there. We have the poorest of the board neighborhoods wild the disease spreads equally amongst people but because of the social economic status and how the state has been set up has allowed the disease to spread much more within our minority communities in inner cities. So if you look at this broader we have to have pause and respect before we make a major decision. Your doctor were practising physician. You've treated patients. We're going to speak next to a diner owner. You know the the pain of people who have been losing money maybe. Losing businesses is palpable. You know that they feel that they can make it safe but they may not make it if they don't get that chance to try to make it safe. What would you say to them so I I can? I said to them that I truly understand. And recognize and respect what you're experiencing and we can do better by being better prepared to allow you to open your business but at the same time make sure that you and your family and your workers and your customers are all safe now. I have seen the ugly face of this disease. When you see people in their thirties or people in their fifties sixties seventies eighties die. You have to have respect for the disease and and I would not want it to happen to any single person anywhere. If I have a a way to do this. It must be horrible to see people not be able to breeze issue and these patients should have had full lives headed not been for Combet and Here VR and you're seeing so many people in minority communities and when certain people are infected more. Yes it is the virus but also it is the overall situation of how health and healthy living and healthy opportunities are different for different people in our state. That's Connecticut State Senator. So Anwar also a medical doctor who treats patients with Covid Nineteen Senator Anwar Dr Anwar. Thank you so much thank you. Thank you for having European. Well let's bring in that diner. Owner David Augustino owns the Bedford. Street diner in Stanford Connecticut about forty miles. Outside New York City David State senator on Warr wants to pause more testing and preparation. Why not wait even just one week more? Well I mean I guess I could Live with one week but as of now our governor Lamont has already declared that there'd be no inside dining and until June twentieth. So that's you know that that's another I mean in my mind we were told You know I think it was March seventeenth to UH essentially closer business. Do we take on delivery bar salons jams. They were literally had to lock their doors to fly the curve and we and this is a lot of the citizens of Canada. Feel like we did that. It's it's flattened. So what are we doing now? We're waiting for so every German. The state is and by the way. Sounds like you're saying you feel like you were good citizens and today you start outside sidewalk dining just delivery. We're hearing in some places like in the North End in Boston. That delivery ability. Maybe it was five percent of what they need to keep going. How about with you? How much decades between takeout and delivery I down about eighty two percent without the indoor and by the way getting any help for that We P P P as it's very well documented the. Pcp does not work well for restaurants or gyms number one. It took too long by the time I finally got my hands on it Two of my employees when unemployment. I couldn't blame them with that. Extra six hundred bonus that the government allowed in there. It really wasn't good for for for restaurants and James but I did get that and the stuff that did stay can use that to pay them. Let's remind people spend seventy five percent of that pee on employee payroll but like many business owners? You wish you had more that money to pay things like utilities and rent and now outside dining. What percentage is that going to give you? I have no idea we've never really you know we barely ever have put tables outside. Should be an uptick. Yes but nothing's GonNa make up for you know when you have a busy weekend inside a diner and then tell you for parts of the country that don't have diners. It's inconceivable to see table like a cafe setting outside of a diner because the whole experience is packed into your booths in the diner. And there's a place where you can sit at the counter and it's one turned upside down on tables at very sad thing but it is and what precautions are you taking for the outside dining that the governor wanted we have GonNa have sanitizers? We're GONNA have single serve mustard sugar cremers. We have the pencils that a plastic wrapped individually wipe down each table. Left ever us. We're gonNA with a waitress. That able to wear masks gloves concern about your wages as workers. Are they concerned? No well right now. The only workers are middle. My cooks are in the back. So they're not coming into contact with the actual customers but Me and my sisters and my mother doing the the waitressing so I mean are they concerned I not not that much more concerned about losing a business. We built for thirteen years. Yes I have. This feeling get stanford such a bustling place anyway. But it's also you know between New York and Boston. People travel on ninety five crazy back and forth. I feel you're going to have customers but are you on pins and needles about what you.

"Scott Moe is giving the full quarantine measures another week and a half and the schedule and premier says. He's going to begin a five phase plan to return the province to normalcy the premier outlined. His plan this morning but the announcement comes as the northwestern community of Lash grapples with a rapidly moving outbreak. That's now spread to a nearby first nation. Dr Anwar is a former deputy medical health officer in Saskatchewan. We reached her in Saskatoon. Captain One if everything goes as planned to. What kind of things are going to start happening? Scotch on on the fourth of May the initial phase announced by premium. All this morning will involve opening fishing. Angling Iraq says camp and parks and so that is pretty soon and what about also medical services that will be allowed like dentistry and optometry and whatnot correct and so these would be things like More of the allied health care that we think of rather than the acute care services which has been opened as of now now. Golf Course for example won't be open until the fifteenth and then additional retail services won't be opened until may nineteenth and after that they will be assessed but given what we've just learned about what happened in the lush than northern community in Saskatchewan and the cases that this the doubling of cases in that community. What could you tell us about about that? I'm actually quite concerned about premium mold. This morning mentioned that. This plan had been sure without the provincial payments. Suspect this has been planned for a while. When the numbers has remained low in Saskatchewan the numbers in far north of Scotland in as well as adjacent town has increased rapidly only in the past few days since last Friday and that if we consider the population density up north actually is quite a significant rise as of yesterday they have the second highest number of active cases after Saskatoon and that has direct impact on tourism or fishing or camping activity in northern The lakes In the boreal forest In Scotch when is what draw the tourist on even American tourists to to come in the summer most also be of great concern to indigenous communities and in Scotch on says it spread to the clearwater river donation correct and yesterday? There was also a report that I believe. Another first nation to Of A hundred kilometers north of bill. has had four new cases report and so that represent the travel. Sorta pathway from North Outta for going North Mental Losch which in the winter has ice will connecting to northern Alberta and A lot of these services higher local staff which is great but that does create a bit of challenge if the local indigenous communities are declaring state of emergency curfew and trying to contain a vars while the tourism industry is trying to open up and higher worker dot is potentially Quite risky and trump's. Oh the able to contain cove. Nineteen in ordinances. Gotcha if as you say that. The is premised on the efforts of the assumption that they can trace whatever cases do increase. Whatever does happen. They're all traceable. What what what does it tell you that there has been this outbreak what what is a traceable outbreak? The province has not released officially much details And so at this time we only know. The total number of cases that's been reported about ten percent of those cases in the entire province are not traceable But a huge number of them right now around twenty are under active investigation. So I'm assuming quite a large number of that. Active investigations are before turning to the new cases. Just been reported in the far north So what that tells us that will only one outbreak away really As what we observed in all BERTA IN BC. We do have we what we understand. Is that the. The lauch outbreak could have been tied to workers who are returning from the oil sands sites across the border in Alberta since the work has dried up for those people they are going home crossing borders. And so it's a scotch doesn't have much control over. Its borders. Does it correct. And it's not clear from the plan that's released So far whether there would be any measures for interprovincial orders and even if so Because of the close linkage in both personal and professional travel back and forth between northern Alberta and lauch or the rest of the northern Scotland towns as long as we are seeing Elevated risk next to the border the same risk will apply to Communities what were you the most about Scotch when beginning to open up. I think we have in fortunate because a the lower population density and because The government did take decisive actions early on in the epidemic curve compared to other jurisdictions however we do not have the benefit of twenty first century technology like South Korea Taiwan do whereby. You know if someone is fun to have been to quite a number of places Those Asian Nations happy able to send out allergic people to say you know what you might have been exposed. We Joe no but please keep an eye on it and please go for testing. And so my worry is that if we rely on our current passive testing system we may not picked up the start of a new outbreak soon enough to contain it. Dr Hong we will be watching. Canada will be watching to see what happens in Saskatchewan and appreciate speaking with you thank you. You're welcome thanks. Carol Take Care Take.

"Reagan walking away from Gorbachev in Reykjavik. So thank you for doing that. It's easy Tanner into a bad deal. And you get some press this positive, but you're willing to walk away. God bless you for doing it. Keep the sanctions up, and let's denuclearize peninsula. Thank you for your efforts. Jerry palm pale is appearing live before the house foreign affairs committee on C span radio WCS PFM Washington. Thank you, Mr. Connelly. Thank you. Mr chairman. Welcome back, Mr. secretary and thank you for being here. This the secretary. I I don't wanna talk a political level today with you. I wanna talk from the heart. And I wanna talk about a matter of Justice on behalf of one of my constituents while not I want to show you a picture. This picture took place on November nineteenth two thousand seventeen in my district. I'm holding a cane because I had had a bad accident at a NATO meeting and Bucharest Romania a few months before. And I still needed a came to hobble around not the most flattering picture me. Next to me is a man named Jamal Shuki. Is a mild mannered, man. He and I are discussing Middle East issues. He was a Saudi citizen family. Children had on occasion worked for the Saudi government. Or for members of the Royal family. He was mild. Mannered soft spoken and a moderate credit of the kingdom. He wanted to see modernisation. He wanted to see reforms. He was a columnist sometimes for the Washington Post our local newspaper here in Washington. On October second two thousand eighteen eleven months later. My constituent legal residents of the United States who lived in Tyson's corner in Fairfax county, the Commonwealth in Virginia. Was lured into the sovereign territory. Consulate. Of the Saudi government and this bull. Because he was seeking papers to get remarried. He had his fiancee outside waiting for him. Then to the consulate before, and they had lulled them into believing. He would be safe. But of course, he wasn't what we know that was that on that day two planes under the control of the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, flew in with two teams. Whose objective was to either kidnap or kill Mr. kashogi? One presumes the objective involve killing because not a diplomatic tool. Normally they brought with them a bone saw. We know all of that. Because of revelations from Turkey. But those revelations designed to standard been confirmed by our intelligence community, you know, better than I nonetheless, what we do know is the Saudi government lied consistently. They lied about. Whether he safely left the consulate that day knowing full, well, he did not. They lied about his murder. They lied about the conspiracy to murder him. They lied about who did it and how it was done. And I guess I want to show you another picture mister mister secretary. This is a picture that took place fourteen days after the murder. And I chose you. And the crown prince who many believe orchestrated and ordered the murder of Mr. kashogi, Mike, Mike constituent. And I guess. I guess what? The what this picture raises is a question at what point does Americans. Do. We insist that the rights enumerated in our declaration of independence, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness all three of which were denied my constituency. My constituent, Mr. Khashoggi. When do they Trump diplomatic nicety? Is there ever a time when we're going to as a country insist you know what? We're not going to do businesses normal, and we are going to hold you to account now at that meeting. You said I believe that they would be held to account, but you were meeting with a man. Who was the showing you they would be held to account one. He is himself suspected strongly of having orchestrated the murder. So I guess I wanna ask you secretary. Were you aware of the fact at that point of the gruesome details of the murder of my constituent, Michika Shoghi? Did you discuss that murder with the crown prince? And. How are we going to moving forward? Hold the crown prince and the Saudi government. Responsible for one of the most grisly episodes ever to occur. And a consulate or an embassy and our diplomatic experience. So you asked three three questions there. I believe the first one was what was my knowledge base. I think at that time I knew most of what had taken place, although I don't recall the exact sequence. I've certainly have learned more about that since then I've learned additional fact since that moment of moment in time. Second question was did. I discuss the murder the answer is. Yes, I think I said at that day that I had discussed the murder with him. And then the third question is how will we hold them accountable. You've seen the Trump administration. Do just that with respect to seventeen individuals. We are continuing all across the government. Certainly I'd over it means that all the tools that we have in our capacity to learn more facts about this and President Trump has made very clear that we will continue to work to identify those who are responsible for Jamal kashogi, murdering hold them accountable. We will stand by that today. Just just a real quick one. And does that mean mister secretary no matter how high up at mica? I said anyone thank you mister secretary. Thank you, sir. I pray. We get Justice mystic Shuki and his family and friends. This is a she's been radio programming from Wednesday WC SPF in Washington. Before the house foreign affairs committee from Pennsylvania. Thank you. Mr Chairman secretary, great to see you. We're proud of your service in this body and your current efforts. I want to begin by applauding the president and your department for taking steps to recognize the Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights as you might recall. I wrote you a letter last year in that regard encouraging that recognition, and I just think this time with Iran, proxies terrorist organizations. The IRA has Bulla all on the border. There is no more of an important time than now. Republicans Scott Perry. To take this action. And I speak for all the people in the district represented a proud of this action support it and just say, thank you very much. And we offer our support in assistance moving on regarding to bed. I'm just wondering what is preventing the administration from formerly placing a diplomatic post in Lhasa. It's something that previous administrations and this ministration continue to review. Have to place it in the context of our larger policy end up Pacific policy. Even more broadly. We're trying to make sure that we get each of these steps, right? President Trump has directed. Each of us to do is recognize facts on the ground trying to play good common sense, and then generate policies that actually get outcomes I think for an awful long time, we've done things that made us feel good but didn't deliver. And so with respect to this particular issue and all the issues that surround in Asia, we wanna make sure that we actually deliver for the American people. And so as we consider the appropriateness of of a lot of decisions on designations on sanctions on how the department offense is going to posture. How we work with us these Asian countries. We wanna make sure that we actually deliver for the American people. We hope you do it's been a long time. And I think it would be helpful for our broader relationships so to speak moving on but somewhat within the realm of China will the State Department considered revoking pouch status for construction materials regarding the housing complex on Connecticut avenue that China's building an association with their diplomatic mission here until they. Respond to a reciprocal type arrangement with our our embassy in Beijing. I'm familiar with the challenges we're having with delivering diplomatic materials consistent with international treaty obligations there in Beijing were considering lots of different ways to convince the Chinese to permit us to do this basic diplomatic function. Isn't it part of their agreement that they can't be shipping? Their construction materials in via diplomatic pouch mean didn't they sign that agreement or greet to that that provision? I I'm not certain if that's the case or not it's my understanding. But if there was something other than that, maybe we'll follow up afterwards. But it seems to me that this is a circumstance it should be easy. When when our our construction are building over there needs needs assistance and needs attention that we should be able to do that. And certainly under the exact same provisions that they are on the fact that they would not allow that while we allow them to to build on. Connecticut avenue on the high ground mind, you as a military officer that concerns not only but many Americans greatly moving on with the advent of the of the Muller report. I'm wondering if. If your department is starting to investigate people at the State Department that used their official position. To distribute and elements are discuss elements of the Steele dossier. With the intent of sparking investigation into the president of the United States that work in the State Department. Those folks is there ongoing are there ongoing investigations or are you considering investigations at this time? I'm going to honor the commitment. I made when I signed up for this gig. I'm not gonna talk about ongoing investigations that we have, but you can rest assured that if we see malfeasance misbehavior those doing things that are inappropriate the team understands their mission, which is to hold every officer accountable against the mission set that the constitution, President Trump of laid out for us, and I appreciate not discussing ongoing investigations. But now that the Muller investigation is complete the report at least the summaries issued, and we expect the full report, or at least a portion of that. When able do you envision any new investigations or opening any investigation subsequent to that? Based on what you know now about some of the people at the State Department who have engaged in in circulating or being a part of the Steele dossier. Just I not can speculate on investigations that we might or might not open. All right. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you chair. Now recognizes himself got four questions for the record that I just want to have my colleagues be aware of the first of these is whether we can count on you to support continued assistance to nagorno-karabah art sock especially for de-mining efforts and expanding support to a healthcare and rehabilitation services, especially those injured in minds, California, Democrat Brad Sherman. The second is whether we can count on you to support aid to Armenia for the twenty-five thousand Syrian refugees that they've taken in the third is chair of the Sindh caucus southern Pakistan Sindh has faced extra judicial killings forced conversions of Hindu girls. And after they've been kidnapped and forced marriages. And Dr Anwar Legari the brother of a dear friend of mine was subject to extra extrajudicial killing four years ago. So I hope that you can pledge to raise gross human rights violation in Sindh with the Pakistani diplomats that you interact with and I hope that you'll also be able to support more outreach in the Sindhi language from our Karachi council it and to support a million and a half dollars a year. So that the voice of America can broadcast in the Sindhi language. Now, I want to pick up on Mr. Connolly's comments. Kashogi was brutally murdered. So far are soul response has been to tell seventeen thugs that they can't visit Disneyland. They can't these seventeen but men who kit won't get US embassies. That's inadequate response. I'm gonna suggest a better response. There are a lot of things we could do to Saudi Arabia that may not be our traditional policy may not be in our interest..

Everybody knows by Leonard Cohen, this is democracy. Now democracy now dot org. The Warren peace report, I made me Goodman, a nationwide campaign has been launched to find blood stem cell donor for twenty nine year old journalists who was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia line Anwar is a producer used to work at story core she desperately needs a stem cell transplant, but she doesn't match any for family members or any of the nineteen million people in the national registry. A campaign urging people of South Asian descent was launched donate stem cells to register in line. His name the campaign, which was promoted online by celebrities like Mindy Kaeling and Haas on manashian is cold. Hashtag swab for line a- beloved story. Core producer line on Wor. Who recorded the story, you're about to see was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia in needs blood stem cell. Transplant. She's not matched with her family or any of the twenty million donors in the registry. So this is where you come in line needs new donors to join the match, and she's most likely to match someone from her own ethnic background. So we're a specially looking for donors of South Asian descent only one point three percent of people in the registry are South Asian sign up to see if you could be her match and shared. Join dot be the match dot org slash swab for line a- or text L. I y an a two six one four seven four the world needs line a- to keep telling stories. On thursday. I spoke with Linus, brother, doctor, bassin war. I asked him to explain more about Linus condition, and what treatment could help her. Blind has been diagnosed with with an aggressive form of leukemia and known as a cute. My Lloyd leukemia or AM L and she was diagnosed back in back in December. And it requires some pretty aggressive chemotherapy. And so she's been undergoing that over the last two two and a half months, but ultimately, her best chance of cure is going to be like, you said blood stem cell transplant, and that's what we're trying to kind of work out right now while she's still kind of battling the cancer. We're trying to find her that perfect match. What does that mean? How do you find this match? So they look at very specific markers on the stem cells. And I think they're about ten markers that they look at and so so far no one in the family and no one in the in the registry has has has been a complete perfect match. And so just getting. More and more people on the registry, specifically, south Asians is higher chance of getting a match with them. How does the system work us? So the process of joining the registries actually relatively easy, you just kinda register online and that takes about two or three minutes, they send you a swabbed kit. And it's basically a cheek swab that you swab your cheek and you put it back in the pre marked envelope, and you send it back in and then within a few weeks. You're you're on the registry. And then you could potentially save Linas life or or anyone's life that that needs this type of of transplant. What about your family is anyone match or a partial matching? What does that even mean? Yes. So no one is a perfect match. Meaning no one has mashed all of those ten little surface markers that they look for on those stem cells. I am as. I'm the closest match matched about half. And so while that's not obviously perfect. If it comes to it, and we can't find a match on the registry through all the efforts that have been done. Then then I'm kind of like a second option. I could be used if needed if it can don't find anyone better than me. Tell us a little line as your brother after all. Yeah. So Linas, a, you know, very charismatic outgoing girl. And so she has loved journalism. She loves to tell other people story and get out there and hear what people have to say and their opinions on different topics. And so this is kind of been a shock for all of us. But line has really taken it in stride. It is a little odd for her to be kind of on the other end of the journalistic spectrum of. But she's kind of, you know, getting more open to it now in realizing that this is. Important to help save her life and physically how she doing right now. Line is doing remarkably. Well, thankfully, initially, you know, some of the chemotherapy was very was very aggressive, and she she had a tough time within the first couple of weeks. But over the over the time, she's kind of recovered. She's getting some other chemotherapy, that's not as aggressive, but still has some side effects. But through it all she's kind of maintained or positively. And so that's that's very nice to watch.

Pachuca dese out to raise awareness about where we are missing the boat.
