ETA studios in Washington and in the west from the Walter Cronkite school of journalism at Arizona State University the corona virus pandemic has hit the globe in a time of massive refugee crises confrontation between the world's great powers and armed conflicts in many countries how does one coordinated global response to an invisible enemy for answers I spoke earlier today with someone grappling with this and much more is Antonio Guterres secretary general of the United Nations Mr secretary general thank you very much for joining us you told the leaders of the world's richest nations yesterday that every country on earth is in a fight against this coronavirus but not winning it why not and do you think it's a fight that can be one well this is a fight that can be worn on the demonstration is that it has been a long already in some parts of the world but it's requires the the very clear strategy and the strategy must be to suppress the vitals and the strategy that needs to be adopted by all countries in coordination following the guidelines of world also in isolation until now once we have had lost a completely different set of measures in different countries sometimes even within one country differences and he is doing different things and the violence is if anything changes while I'm on the it's not easy to control so we need concerted action by all major players and obviously when the yesterday I was meeting G. twenty I was meeting not only with the leaders of eighty percent of the global economy but if ninety percent of the cases of infection so if the G. twenty could come together and dump the common sense of G. everywhere a concerted actions everywhere following the guidelines of what this organization I mean get suppression of the vitals and the transmission of the vitals north of mediation not just the bending the curve to break the curve of the that that represents the the number of cases if there will be the common strategy if we don't do it if each country will go in some way now we are seeing the vitals it moved from China to Cody from good to get to Europe from Europe to the U. S. now it's moving sauce and then moving sauce Africa is a continent with very little capacity to respond and I am extremely what its data in those situations we might have millions of cases we have millions of people dying and the terrible tragedy that's we I need to avoid or Mr secretary general where's the evidence that countries are working together because we see squabbling between the United States and China for example calling each other names I mean where's the evidence that this kind of cooperation happening I don't think that these guys the corporation acting I think this kind of cooperation must start effectively because we thought it will be defeated by the violence and the the costs will be enormous of course a new human lives and the cost would be enormous selection tools the economy and the society this crisis is a crisis is that these larger from the economic and financial point of view then the cries of the thousand and dates and in two thousand and eight there was a concerted action by all members of the G. twenty in order to be able to address the crisis and to relaunch the economies this time we will leave an even bigger efforts I was happy to see that the the seventeen US approved put in dollars which corresponds almost ten percent of the American economy but of course I'm very worried about the the countries in the sauce where these resources are not available what and where the tragedy might be tangible you interested you're right about what the Congress has passed the president's presumably going to sign it however one only one billion of it it sounds like a lot of money but that's point zero five percent of it is set aside for international aid you've called on the developed countries to help the developing countries it do you see do you see that kind of support forthcoming well we need the ball to see three billion dollars for the developing countries if one looks again at the same percentage of GDP the question is to mobilize them in an effective way in a non bureaucratic way without conditions that companies are not able to match and to do it's massively in support to the countries of the cells at the same time you have what is now I believe the largest population of refugees displaced persons on the planet since World War two what happens if the corona virus hits those populations which it's certain to do I. how how does that get addressed well we as us through the U. N. I. commission for refugees and internalization of migration a plan of action I need you sensually ups pretty fencing avoiding at all costs fortunately many of these camps are in remote locations avoiding at all costs the vitals to come to them and at the same time to build the minimum capacity to respond even if we know that that will be extremely difficult and that was the reason why I launched today at eighty I launched the yesterday and the dealer and the humanitarian agencies of two billion dollars which is a drop in the ocean of what we are discussing for the needs of the global economy two billion dollars to be able to provide to those most vulnerable situations you know it is of conflict the minimum of humanitarian response able to hopefully prevent the system from coming and if it comes to do our best to respond to its knowing it'll be very difficult to avoid the very tragically consequences so many challenges to face Mr secretary general earlier this week on Monday you've also call for a universal cease fire for wherever there are hostilities for them to end because of the corona viruses anyone heeding that call yes we have positive answers in several situations the but the problem is not only to give a positive answer is to make sure that the answer is translated into action on the grounds that wasn't acceptance in principle by the touring party Libyan forces on the ground seems a lot worse at being CDS several of the actors have announced that they supported the the cease fire he not Yemen all the parties have said that they would be ready to support the ceasefire but these requires massive pressure from the international community I've been appealing for members of the security council for those of more relevance ballers in the world to put pressure on the parties to the conflict in all these situations in order to be able to translate that's pretty simple the idea that indeed they are ready to accept it into he L. E. T. on the grounds and unfortunately the race that's the good intention that might not be translated into a fact Sir is a big risk no question a big risk just finally Mr secretary general where do you look for inspiration in all this I mean I'm assuming you've never seen anything like this in your time working at the U. N. working with refugees my inspiration comes from those people the that to you not only in my old agency United Nations I commission for refugees but to in UNICEF the world food program in peacekeeping missions the courage resilience and the generosity they show this is for me an enormous expiration United Nations secretary general Antonio Guterres thank you very much thank you very much Louisiana is one of the emerging hot spots of covert nineteen New Orleans alone already has more than eleven hundred cases and a hundred and nineteen deaths the US Surgeon General warned that next week will likely be worse and the city's convention center is being converted into a makeshift hospital William Brangham has a conversation from the front lines of health care there that's right three voice from Louisiana I'm joined now by Dr Julio Figueroa he's an infectious disease doctor at Louisiana State University health Dr Figueroa thank you very much for being here could you just give us a sense we've been hearing different dispatches from Louisiana what's it like there what kind of patients are you seeing in the hospitals.
