Covid-19 cases are on the rise in all 50 states, taking a toll on healthcare workers

"Rise hospitalizations rise deaths rise. Were really hitting a bad part of this pandemic all over again and one of the things that we always like to check in on is our doctors or nurses are healthcare workers. It's been a tough go for them. You know they're the ones on the frontlines dealing with the patients all the time and helping people get better and we've done stories in the past before already on the podcast about the burn out that the doctors and nurses are facing some of them are retiring early all that jazz but right now you wrote an article sarah how some of this coronavirus disbelief is really affecting them. You know it's hard for them to go there every day but still constantly hear people say that it's not as bad as it seems or it's a hoax etc etc. So tell us a little bit about some of the conversations you were having with doctors and nurses about this. So i spoke with several doctors and nurses across the country and basically what they described or treating patients who are seriously ill in the hospital as part of their job and then going home and either in the line at the grocery store or through family or friends and family hearing from people who think the viruses hoax or just not as serious as public health officials have said it is and they say that that sort of disbelief on top of months of physical and mental demands of caring for very sick patients during the pandemic is frustrating and draining. The overarching is that if the broader public is not taking the pandemic and the associated risks seriously does it risk furthering the viruses spread. I mean it's a weird situation We see it a lot playing out in the media. Obviously how bad it is. We see our local elected officials talking about it constantly imposing new restrictions and lockdowns. And that's probably fueled some of the frustration on the part of people not wanting to go through that obviously huge economic effects that are going on because of it is hard for a lot of people and despite these huge numbers. There's a lot of people that have not gotten this and maybe some people don't know somebody of the that might have gotten it so it might fuel some of that skepticism. They said you know some of this in their sort of groups have family and friends is rooted in the fact that there were parts of the country that shut down before the virus was widely circulating there. So there's this frustration from economic losses whether it be a job or just instability in a person's household by nansha situation that contribute to this frustration. I shut down. Continue as the numbers. Continue to swell. You had a story about a nurse. In el paso texas who had a patient and early november wheeling him out of the intensive care unit and he was still saying it. Wasn't that bad at that. The media was exaggerating it. She she that time to say that he was the only person that she had treated that day. That was able to converse with her. You know and that also the she was treating severe that she had seen in ten years as a nurse so she said that inoculation. The patient change their mind other healthcare professionals that i talked to said at times. They say more of an uphill climb in convincing those around them that this is real and one of the things that came up repeatedly in the conversations i had with healthcare workers and what they hear from the communities around them are patients. Is there have been conflicting messages around. America's mask wearing early on and because the virus continues to spread. Now there's not only a pandemic fatigue but there's a little bit of with lash in terms of what measures should i or should i not be taking a making a difference. That might have been one of the biggest

Intensive scare: covid-19 ravages America

"We're likely to lose another two hundred and fifty thousand people dead between now and january this week grim headlines and milestones in america the daily covid nineteen death. Toll hit a new record on wednesday. The infected patient count in hospitals asked one hundred thousand for the first time the contagion has now reached every corner of the country with ninety percent of all. Us hospitals in areas designated as corona virus hot zones cases have topped a million in florida texas and in california governor gavin. Newsom warned of worse to come just in the last fourteen days close to one thousand californians have lost their lives due to covid nineteen. The bottom line is if we don't act now. Our hospital system will be overwhelmed. We don't act now will continue to see a death. Rate climb. healthcare systems are becoming overwhelmed in ways not even seen during the pandemic's panicked early stages in the midwest things have been particularly dire with intensive care units filling up doctors and nurses exhausted and in many places. The public just isn't acting in a way that will stem the tide right now across the midwest. We've seen a surge of cova cases of people being rushed into hospital. Adam roberts is our midwest correspondent in states like north dakota. South dakota is when talking to health workers in those hospitals. They've been telling me that. Icu beds are at eighty percents. Ninety percent occupation ensured. The hospitals seem to be getting quite full and sometimes quite stressed and how have the hospitals in the region been preparing for this surge. I spoke to several health. Workers including dan rooney. Who's with the emergency medicine department at the university of iowa hospitals and clinics. That's in iowa city and his hospital because it's an academic center is just about the best equipped in the state. It's been doing everything it can to clear. Space to let covert patients have as much from his possible. So inpatients have been sent home when they can be. They've added extra. Icu beds that being postponing elective surgeries and dr renee told me that it's being taught and go from the outside. It sounds like okay. Everything was handled any sort of at the moment. But it's just hard to convey how close you are to going from just being able to barely need it to be overwhelmed and the fact that has been handled so far has been partly down to the actions of frontline workers. We've been lucky of the health care system to mostly not quite break. But i think people be shocked about how close we get and just what it takes in terms of individual level responses to make the thing keep going so from what dr wendy says. It sounds as if the public doesn't really know how bad things are at the moment. Yes don't worry says. He worries members of the public and governing. Politicians just haven't grasped what happens when hospitals get to full take for example the impact of canceling elective surgeries as a common misconception that those are surgeries onto poulsen until the no pressing when you hear hospital canceling elective surgeries. That means people potentially with cancer. Getting their tumor excise. It means people that have gallbladders either heart disease or vascular disease that need intervention that are putting them at risk of really bad side effects and sickness or death. That's real that's happening. So when the hospitals become overwhelmed is not just covid. Nineteen patients who suffer. It's the rates of excess non virus. Deaths that also could search and what about the situation outside urban areas like iowa city. I mean the situation. Equal kind of across the region. No is is not equal. So what you see. Is this interrelationship between the big hospitals in places like iowa city and then rural places small hospitals. That might just have one doctor one us now these rural hospitals. They're under great strain. Not least because many of them have closed in the last decade or so around one hundred thirty rural hospitals across america have closed and that puts a lot of pressure on the ones that remain. They can be overwhelmed with just one two three patients coming in and you can imagine that when covid sweep through a small town maybe a local meat packing plant is affected or prison. Those hospitals are overwhelmed. Very quickly. I spoke to ben christians. Who's an emergency care doctor. In sioux falls in south dakota who said that for the past two months they've been functioning at over one hundred percent capacity of their icu. Beds and they've been adding more beds as well and he takes patients from eighty sparsely populated but Reflected counties spread all across south dakota and beyond and these are patients who are coming in from as far as a hundred and fifty miles to get to his relatively small hospital. And it's not surprising that those places get overwhelmed more quickly than in the biggest cities. And why do you think the situation is so bad particularly in the midwest. What is moving out from the midwest now but the first surge hit the midwest this autumn i think partly because these are more northern states and it's colder weather up here and so people are in those and maybe spreading the virus more easily but it's also a fact that in rural areas in parts of northern wisconsin and the two dakota's people have just not taken serious measures. It's not unusual for me when i've been reporting and wearing my mosque going into small towns to be stead at and for people to look at me as if i'm an alien. They don't want to wear masks. They don't want to do social distancing as winning liz people in the cities and that may be why they're also being affected badly now and the third reason is that politicians in those states including the governors have been refusing to order rules on mosques and closing restaurants and businesses. And so it's not unusual in all of these places to have mass gatherings people going to church people going to bars and restaurants even when the infection rate is extraordinarily high and that must be that much more frustrating for over the frontline workers who are seeing the effects of all that don't originally told me it's very difficult the thing that's been harder as as this has gone on the sense that we're not really in this together as a community as a state a nation you know. We're watching people get sick. We're watching people die. We're watching our colleagues really extended themselves to prevent the system from completely breaking and then to see scenes of full airports full bars to see people talking about their individual liberty with regards to amass. That has been that's been and a lot of the healthcare workers in other places. I spoke to said exactly the same that frustrated. They're exhausted some falling ill themselves but is there a bright side here. I mean haven't health professionals come a long way since the spring and in terms of coping with these outbreaks. Yes so the saving grace of all this is frontline. Staff know much better ways to treat patients for example they're much slower than people on ventilators. They discovered that if you'll put on a ventilator you own you have a five to ten percent chance of actually surviving it and so far. Fewer people are being intimidated than before. It's only the most desperate cases and generally there a better treatments better drugs use of steroids and someone so there are reasons to be more hopeful. That if you are infected you can survive. But on the downside. We've had a big surge in infections. Recently is not just the colder weather. It's the fact that people are getting together as the holiday season and run the said he stands by and he watches in fear. Because the thanksgiving weekend. The past probably is a sign that they'll be more affections and we'll see a big surge in the weeks to come. You know for all the fatalist and say well. It's paying them into a disease. what can you do. You can just look around the world that responses and places have crushed to this and there is no reason that a place with the material wealth and the scientific expertise of the united states shouldn't have been among those countries and the fact that we haven't it's an enduring tragedy. Adam thank you very much for joining us. Thank you jason.

Seattle sees rise in COVID-19 cases ahead of Thankgivinng

"Are skyrocketing, and hospitals around the state are filling up. Public health. Seattle King County Health Officer Dr Jeff Duchin says this is a catastrophe, his words waiting to happen. In a press briefing, he described the exponential growth of the Corona virus outbreak. It's I need to acknowledge that cases, hospitalizations continue to rise and King County at alarming rates. Our cases are doubling approximately every two weeks and we reached a new peak with approximately 700 new cases reported each day last week. That's nine times higher than what we saw in late September in about 3.5 times higher than the previous peaks. We saw In the summer and in the original outbreak in the spring, we had close to 900 cases reported on the 19th. We are also seeing a sustained increase in hospitalizations with our daily hospitalizations, increasing 3 to 4 fold compared to October. That's every day 3 to 4 fold More people being hospitalized in King County for the last three weeks we've seen between 101 160 people hospitalized per week. And that number was in the low fifties during most of November. We're also seeing a recent increase in hospitalizations among 80 year olds and older and among the 60 to 69 year old group over the past week, and this is very concerning trend for us, because as you know, Previously majority of our cases and hospitalizations have been in the younger and middle aged adults. Another worrisome sign increasing numbers of APP breaks in the size of outbreaks that we're managing in long term care facilities. We had approximately 61 outbreaks reported over the last four weeks compared to 30 in the prior four weeks. We're hearing the briefing from King County Health Officer Dr Jeff Duchin. I would appreciate it if you could perhaps describe where we're at right now, with the increasing hospitalizations. And the leg of a few weeks before we unfortunately, see deaths increase. How bad might this get? Well, thank you for your question, Charlie. You know, like much of a covert 19. It's hard to predict precisely where we're headed. But all indicators Right now in King County suggests it's going to get very bad, particularly if people gather and significant ways over Thanksgiving or subsequently And if we don't do something differently now, we as you know, we've been asking, providing information and asking the public to limit their activities and take steps to prevent covert transmission for weeks now, yet we're still seeing a relentless rise in cases. That is now being followed by a significant rise in hospitalization, significant impacts on our health care system. So theoretically, you know, if we don't get this under control, what we can see is the hospitals filling up. That means they're at capacity, both in their critical care intensive care units and with the amount of staffing that they have cannot care for critically ill patients who absolutely need that otherwise. And I don't know how. Um how else I can express it. The that is about as bad as it gets with respect to, you know, the impact on our health care system. People not getting a life statement care that they need. And worse hearing about other hospitals and other parts of the country approaching that point now, so clearly, if the operate continues to progress, the way it's progressing that we will reach that point.

How different hospitals battle the pandemic to save lives

"Thanksgiving holiday arrives during an escalating calamity. More than one million people are testing positive for Corona virus every week. Now that is a high enough number that there is a good chance that some of your family friends or co workers. Among them. It's certainly been true for me these last several weeks if you want to identify and especially hard hit state, just throw a dart at a map because the odds are that any state you hit will qualify. This morning we visit three. Sebastian Martinez Valdivia is a K B A. And Missouri Blake farmer is with WPL and in Nashville, Tennessee, and Bram Sable Smith. Is with Wisconsin public radio. Welcome to all of you. Good morning. Thank you. Morning, and Bram. How widespread is this surge in Wisconsin, where you are? It's quite widespread, you know, by September, public health experts were really sounding the alarm about the rise. In cases we're seeing in the state initially were seen surges and cities where the university started located, but very quickly. The virus is rampant in communities. All over Wisconsin. As you know, Steve cases they're just the beginning of a covert search. So our hospital started filling up quickly. And maybe most concerned involves our death. Worried. We reported the record 104 deaths yesterday. We're losing about 52 people every day, on average and over 3000 people. Wisconsin have died of covered 19 so far, and I should also note we are seeing a slight downturn. Our cases are slightly our cases are dropping ever so slightly, But we're still very much at the top of the mountain and Steve the death rates very similar here in Tennessee. But cases are still climbing often more than 4000 Day. And As we found throughout this pandemic destined to lag those big spikes in new cases by a couple of weeks, So Tennessee's bracing for what could be to come because so far they're just has no sign existing of cases, letting up. Blake, over here in neighboring Missouri were in a similar ballpark in terms of new cases on deaths. But the really troubling trend has been in hospitalizations, which are high and continuing to rise on. Hospitals are really struggling with capacity and a lot of parts of the state. Well, let's talk a little bit more about hospitals or doing in Missouri, then Yeah, well, one of the big problems is a lot of the smaller rural hospitals that traditionally transfer patients toe urban and metro areas for intensive care are really struggling to find beds because those larger hospitals are already full. S O. For example, Cocks Health, which is in Springfield, the third biggest city here in Missouri, has expanded its hospital capacity multiple times over the past nine months, but it's still had to turn people away. Steve Edwards is the CEO there. So we will have added 147 bed capacity, which is probably bigger than the Average hospital state, Missouri, he says the hospital keeps hitting what it would have considered a worst case scenario every couple of weeks. But adding rooms isn't really the half of it the biggest challenge, according to Edward to staffing, so training staff to care for covert patients, and then the draining work of actually caring for them. So that's the crisis in Missouri, Bram Sable Smith, Let's go back to Wisconsin Howard doctors trying to keep up where you are. You know, October the state we converted our state fairgrounds into what's called an alternative care facility to handle the excess capacity. We have so about 89% of the hospital beds available in the entire state for being occupied right now, in some regions, that's higher. At the alternative care facility. There's only nine patients right now, though. That's in part because it's voluntary to go there. It's also because it's where patients will go to recover kind of after they've cleared a hurdle in their covert treatment. The idea behind that is To free up resource is inside the hospitals to treat on influx of patients. Researchers like ICU beds that are in very short supply here and brand that the corps of Engineers build alternative care sites here in Tennessee is well, but increasingly, there's a concern about having the staff to open them. And a big reason for that is that so many nurses and doctors air out themselves with Kovar 19 or because they have to quarantine Well, Blake. What are hospitals in Tennessee, saying about that? Well, they're really starting to sound the alarm. In a way we haven't heard for a long time. Hospital administrators have wanted to make sure people knew that they would be able to handle the usual patients along with covert, and that's just less. So now. Dr Katrina Green works in an HCIA emergency room here in Nashville. We're worried about what the delays and care will mean for our patients, and I am personally terrified in my hospital. Being full could result in someone dying in the waiting room. The situation has become particularly severe in parts of Texas as well like El Paso and love IQ. For now that they're able to transport covert patients to other parts of the state. But there's going to be a time likely when those hospitals air capacity to You know, I spent some time last week and one of the five covert units at the University Hospital here in Madison, Wisconsin, where I live. I spoke to Mary Lowe. She's a nursing assistant in the unit. She's been there since the pandemic began. This has been going on for a long time. And right now it doesn't feel like there's an end in sight. Even though there will be a time it doesn't necessarily feel like that right now. You know that unit as 28 beds and they've been consistently full and she says, it's it's exhausting and remember, the whole reason for shutdowns early on, was to prevent hospitals from being overrun will now in a lot of these states like ours, Those restrictions are long gone, and hospitals are now nearing the edge of that cliff. But political leaders are really finding it hard to go backward after lifting restrictions, months, Okay, granted, that's granted. That's true. But suggestion haven't some political leaders at least faced pressure to approve more safety measures. Yeah, There's definitely been pressure here in Missouri. The State Hospital Association actually sent a letter last week to a Republican governor Mike Parson, urging him to kind of issue one of those statewide mass mandate, saying the Wolf is at the door. But like a lot of Republican governors, he's rejected that call just to the north of us, though. In Iowa, the story's a little different. So Governor Kim Reynolds, there, also a Republican, was initially against the mask mandate, and she even said that city's couldn't issue their own mandates back in the summer, But she recently reversed course. I would have seen one of the biggest surges in cases and hospitalizations in the country per capita. I will has roughly half the population of misery, but it's almost in the same ballpark in terms of new cases. S O earlier this month, Reynolds did end up issuing a statewide mass mandate as well as some restrictions on public and private gatherings, with exceptions for some businesses and religious services.

Over 900 Mayo Clinic staff in Midwest have contracted COVID-19 in past 2 weeks

"Heard about screwing a virus cases starting overwhelm hospitals in the upper Midwest, Iowa, North South Dakota, Minnesota among states have had rabid community spreads of Cove it for weeks now intensive care units in the areas they're feeling the strain. What happens that when the staff itself of the hospital? It's overwhelmed with infections. And that is the case that the same Mayo Clinic Hospital Network were over. 900 staffers are sick with covert 19 over just the last 14 days. After Connor lost. This is a gastroenterologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Doctor Thanks for being with us. Soul so much for the opportunity. So I guess like many people, I'm surprised because you hear Mayo Clinic and you think? Well, I mean, if any place is going to figure out how to contain the spread of this infection, it would be the Mayo Clinic. So how did it happen? Yeah, thanks. So much for the opportunity and things to your listeners for tuning in here. Um, 1st 1st thing I would say, even though we have a large number of our employees who are out sick and we have, you know, 900 health care workers diagnose with covert 19 over the past, 14 days and 1500 of our staff are out altogether. We still have a very robust staff at the Mayo Clinic. We are still here to care for our patients. So if we've got sick patients and to come to our they come to our emergency rooms. We're here for them. Here. Here is the issue. You know, we can control of what we can control as work and our workplaces safe. Our employees are not acquiring the covert 19 infection at work now, Nor are our patients getting it from our employees. But when our employees go home, and they take off their masks, and they socialize, and they go out to perhaps bars and restaurants That's where the problem is rising and 93% of the infections have been community acquired. So that's where we encourage everybody. Bought in our immediate area and across the country to do the basic things where your mask social distance be very careful practice excellent hand hygiene, So the reason is that we don't have control of what's going on in the community and encourage everybody to pitch in and that space so we can all defeat this together. There was this kind of like a two pronged thing. Number one. You tell the staffers. Maybe you don't go out as much. Maybe we shouldn't be going to the restaurants or, you know, limits the groups but then it's also on everybody else, like you said, because if people aren't wearing masks, or they do Thing too much. It's going to get around anyways. And you've got more chance is the more you are out. Exactly rice. And you know, Governor walls here in Minnesota, just, you know, put it effectively A stay at home order for the next four weeks between you know, Friday December 18 Tonto. Four weeks later, two bars and restaurants again scaled back to take out only Jim's being closed down so that the governor and the authorities are helping and we're is certainly encouraging our staff during the holiday period Thanksgiving. The social distance, too. You know if you have a typically involve a bunch of friends over, please, you know, scale that back social distance mask. Be very, very careful with your interaction. So we all have a part to play in this and we will defeat it. There's no doubt but we need to be very, very careful with the holiday period coming up, especially.

Doctors and nurses stress as COVID-19 surge overwhelms hospitals

"As cova cases climb in hospitals around the country filled to capacity nurses doctors and other healthcare professionals were caring for these patients. Say they are burned out. I am elizabeth riley and a registered nurse. Elizabeth works in cumberland wisconsin where corona virus cases have skyrocketed over the past few weeks back in the spring. She volunteered to go to new york. City were infections were surging there and working in intensive care unit but now she seeing troubling echoes of that earlier stage in the pandemic it own hospital when we don't have staff because they're out sick or out quarantine then we've got people who are picking up extra shifts and we have people working long long hours many days in a row and that was something i did when i was in new york and i didn't i didn't make it my full twenty one days just because i was so sick and so tired because i work that many days in a row of twelve hour shifts now. We don't work eighteen days straight of twelve hour shifts but we will work a lot of extra hours a lot of extra days. Everybody has banded together as a team. I think you're going to see that in any organization especially this one where i work within the last probably eight weeks. We have seen a huge spike in cases and it has had a profound effect on what we want to do and what we can do both in that there are high high numbers of infected people in our communities many of whom are winding up coming to our hospital but we also have staff members who get infected with covid and then they can't work but even as elizabeth and her colleagues have banded together. She struggles with the number of people in her community. Who continue choosing not to wear masks. It's i don't wanna say hurtful. Because i think that people who decide not to wear masks are not necessarily trying to be hurtful. I think a lot of those people simply don't understand the truth of the situation or choose not to believe the truth of the situation and when that affects my coworkers in the way it has. I find it quite upsetting because i believe i work with the best healthcare professionals in the country in the world i feel like they're sacrificing themselves to some degree for people who for whatever reason don't want to believe it's as big a problem as it is. It hurts my heart to see such really wonderful professionals. Having to put themselves on the line time just trying to get through in the community without getting

But that's a process likely to take weeks to get sorted out until that happens. Must Yanni says she has one simple message for middle class? South Africans keep paying the domestic workers. You've always relied don for the world. I'm Halima Condie when we first began hearing about the corona virus one of the centers of the outbreak was in Japan. Technically off the coast of Japan on a cruise ship diamond princess. But it's only now that Japan has declared a state of emergency. Patrick win is the world's Asia correspondent while there's a really scary jump in cases in Tokyo Osaka and a few other prefectures. And that sort of broken. This lucky streak. That Japan has experienced for months. They have relatively few cases compared to their neighbors such as South Korea certainly China in Tokyo cases just doubled in the last week. So they're total number is still pretty low more than four thousand cases more than ninety deaths. But that's not bad for a fairly large country in Asia. And what do Japanese officials think? The lockdown can do at this point. Okay so they can now more easily closed. Schools parks any public facilities They can mobilize workers more easily. They can actually turn schools into medical facilities or whole football stadiums into medical facilities if they need to but one thing they can't do. They can't literally force people to stay home. And that actually has its roots in World War Two because after the war the US helped install this pacifist constitution trying to prevent Japan from becoming a very militaristic empire but that actually reverberates into the present. Authorities can't harshly act on their citizens and so they have to request people stay home and not order them to stay home. Why has Japan told his point not been hit as hard as other countries? There are many theories one. Is that the Japanese. Population was already very accustomed to wearing masks. It is a place with very good hygiene good public facilities where people can wash their hands. There's another theory that there was simply less social engagement all along in Japan but people have been riding the subway going out to dinner way longer than you see in other countries. I think the leading concern is that maybe there are more cases in Japan than we know about. And they're just not testing that much and they're missing these patches of outbreaks and giving Japan a false sense of security. Japan is an advanced country with topnotch medical sector. Wh WHY so little testing well if you listen to the World Health Organization. They're guidances test and test and keep testing. Japan has been going its own way. In Japan. Health officials have said they don't WanNa roll out all of their tests until cases explode because otherwise it's wasteful. Japan actually is sitting on a lot of tests. They're only using one. Six of their capacity. There is a growing outcry among Japan's healthcare officials. In some academic saying this is gone on too long. You need to test. We need better data on their word. That Tokyo is going to turn into the next New York. And they're thinking that if you don't test you're not going to see that outbreak on the horizon before it explodes. I think the state of emergency is going to be a turning point for Japan and hopefully it stops outbreak more serious outbreak before it really gets out of control.

"Is no greater way for a country to be reminded of the impact of the corona virus than to hear its own leader is in intensive care with the disease. Boris Johnson. The British Prime Minister spent the last twenty four hours in an ICU in a hospital in London. The news has up ended the political establishment in Britain. The country's Foreign Secretary Dominic Robb has stepped in to deputise for Boris Johnson. But it is not clear what powers he actually has leaving. Brits wondering just who is running the country as it faces its greatest crisis in decades. The world's oil barry joins us from London. Or what is the latest Boris Johnson? Orla where we understand. Boris Johnson is stable. He spent the night as you said. In intensive care today Downing Street reporting that he's in good spirits he's not on a ventilator but he is receiving. Jn Many people who end up in intensive care with krona virus to need ventilators. And that's the reason Downing Street said that he was put in intensive care the ventilation would be nearby but they stated today that he doesn't have pneumonia which is positive needless to say he still is in ICU. And it's a very serious condition for prime minister to be in. Boris Yeltsin requested that the Foreign Secretary deputise for him. What does it mean in effect? Is that the official line of succession. It's a good question in effect. Dominic Robb will oversee the cabinet meetings. Quite Boris. Johnson is incapable of doing so and I've heard numerous government. Figures already coming out today to say that the most important strategies for the coming weeks in terms of tackling the virus which is essentially all government is doing right now. Have already been undertaken so Dominic. Robb is following the rules and strategies already laid down by Boris Johnson before him but the government representatives themselves were sort of at pains to say the country can be wrong Andrea cabinet system. How we Rhonette run as here role than needing the prime minister to be in position and to be in charge have listened to the former leader of the Conservative Party. In Duncan Smith. Talking about this today not presidential system. We have a prime ministers and somebody said I must equal. The rest of those equals are still in post normally robbins wanted or he will lead through this. Where the difficulty? I guess lies. Everyone is talking about how these cabinet committees come together and they make a collective decision but what happens when the leaders of each of those committees if they disagree in one of the big decisions that will have to be made in Britain in the coming weeks is in regards to the lock down. So we're under lockdown for the last three weeks and that three weeks is running out next week. So decision has to be made. That would have been a decision. The Boris Johnson would have made to the general public now. The understanding is that there's some disagreement within the cabinet about whether it should be easier. Weather should be kept in place. Can Dominic Robb. Then make that decision. Does he have the power to make that decision so he was asked the question? What happens if there is a disagreement? We've got very clear. Directions very clear instructions from the Prime Minister and we focused with total unity and total resolve on implementing them so that when he's back hope in very short order we will have made the progress that would expect so as you can see. He didn't really answer the question mark. Oh He's sort of fluffed it to be honest but Downing Street's again today they have been a pain to say. Boris Johnson still very much. The Prime Minister Queen Elizabeth made recently was roundly described as powerful and inspirational speech. Even church Chilean and she doesn't speak that often. She has a country to be ambitious to band together. Is the UK finding new leadership in the Queen or even royal critic softening to what her presence can convey at this time? I think in a sense. If we're to feel little roger last right now and if people are saying that they feel that there. Isn't somebody in charge in ten Downing Street? There is a sense that the queen brought a sense of leadership and unity in her speech. And I think it was a sense of sort of optimism and hope that people needed right now because well honestly you know. It's pretty much in short supply at the moment. The world's oil berry in London. Thanks very much thanks marco. Because of disease Israeli security forces have imposed a blockade on a city of two hundred thousand people. Almost no one in no one out again. This has nothing to do with the Israeli Palestinian conflict. The residents are ultra Orthodox Jews when the corona virus hit religious leaders from their community. Were slow to adopt the government's recommendations on social distancing now people in the town of Bananas Barack are paying the price. Naomi's EVOLA has the story from Tel Aviv. The ultra-orthodox or redeem as they're known in Israel make up about thirteen percent of Israel's population. But they now account for a third of the country's corona virus cases. One expert says up to forty percent of the city of Benin Brock could now be infected.

"Last night. The prime minister admitted to intensive care as a result of his escalating corona virus symptoms. James was update on the prime minister's condition. So we just heard from Michael. Go this morning on the program. And he was saying that. The prime minister remains in hospital intensive care. He's received oxygen support but he is not currently on a ventilator. Fraser Claudius very worrying escalation Olo digestion. Last night was the prime minister had been admitted to intensive care as a precautionary measure to be admitted in the fast pace as very serious. It doesn't feel this is completely preemptive. Well that's precisely was warning so many people in government on Sunday nights when they said he was going in for tests people thought that was exactly what it was sure. He's rather important persons. Maybe his tests will be administered in the hospital rather than number ten and then we go from situation where at five o'clock he was still am talking about government affairs and at seven o'clock. He was in intensive care now. If you look at the trajectory of his illness there are lots of examples of people being quite cheerful hospital at seven in the morning calling their wife's joking about being in hospital and then in the evening being in really quite serious condition indeed. So when it accelerates it can do so quite quickly we also know that it can have never like this effect on the vast majority of people were to infect so there is no certainty and telling whereabouts are prime. Minister is difficult to compare it to other diseases. I mean everybody's trying to guest house series is it's how bad and there's a range of outcomes here and I think it's fair to say that right now nobody Downing Street is go to the confidence about where this is going to end. James's clearly the case. The Iranian government is very worried about the prime minister today in his interview on Radio for Michael Graves if there was a development a change. In Boris Johnson's condition. The public would be updated. So is it the case if he moves to ventilator we will be tell quite quickly yes. I think if you look at the fact that yesterday you had donut rob in the press conference five. Pm and the message very much was still. The prime minister was confronting the country. Now I think it was quite clear. Unknown it rob said. He hadn't spoken to Saturday that he wasn't running the country and perhaps the way but lots of us would would would expect was a I saw. His condition was more serious than we have previously fought but then they did get the news out. He'd be moved to intensive cow. Fatty rapidly marks Cabinet Secretary had a conference call with cabinet ministers and then it was press release and I think if if he's condition does change. I think number ten will seek to inform the public but I think this is GonNa be a an unknown period because there is no doubt that having been intense cardboard as he hopefully will leave hospital soon. He will need a period of convalescence. I think there is a there is a feeling among some of the promises friends that it was maybe a mistake for him to be so keen to carry on working even with a stripped back. Dr Last week maybe it would have been better with the benefit of hindsight for him to to arrested more. But I do think it is. I think it would be wise when he leaves hospitals. The people that He he takes a period of rest and I mean that that is going to create a question about how you run the country in that period and I think there's I think in some ways the situation. There is the donut robberies. I actually state that is the constitutional position that means that he is the person who steps up when the prime minister is unavailable. But I think you can also tell that inevitably this is going to have to be more of a cabinet. Government more consensual government in the in the prime minister's absence in the I think wwl was emphasizing this too fast him in his TV clip last night. But if you're going to deviate off. While the prime minister left a plan that's going to have to be done. Something done by agreement across the cabinet. I think what is difficult is one of the big questions for government right now. It's the government. Surgery has because of the word processor. Progress was Z. Then you really started thinking about Robin Having Front and center is how do you get out of his lockdown? And I think I suspect in a way. Vat discussion is slightly frozen in terms of a decision until the prominent returns to work because that is such a cool and could be so defining this government. I struggle to see how anyone other than the prime minister himself could make it as far as a in the press conference yesterday. Dominic Robb was quite dismissive when the topic of an exit strategy was raised. He said now is the time now. Is that she about trying to avoid the peak. And it was a distraction away to talk about that but dominic. Robb is already chairing the morning meeting today when Boris Johnson was technically. These doesn't charge. He is now officially the past. He is deputising for the prime minister making decisions which the Prime Minister is currently unable to do so. What changes in the short time between yesterday and today? Well I do think anything changes. And that's rather the point of having a deputy prime minister under the British System. You do is really how they could've Napoleonic model where there's a prime minister who is automatically replaced when he goes on holiday or if he's incapacitated by deputy prime minister who is also in charge of number ten. I mean in our system. The second most powerful person isn't deputy the second most powerful persons that Chancellor of the Exchequer then after that. You've got the home secretary. Now the foreign secretary is always least powerful of before people. The great officers of state and traditionally the Deputy Prime Minister has made more somebody to fill in for the ceremonial rules of a prime minister. And that might be chairing a committee. Certainly a deputy would not make a change. In strategy now moving from his oppression to strategy of disease to moving to a situation where. You're trying to unwind the lockdown. That would be a major. Controversial strategy would involve overruling lots of other cabinet members and that is something that in the British system. The Deputy Prime Minister would not have the power to do. Remember when William Hague was nominally? David Cameron's deputy? He almost refused to take on the position because he thought it wasn't. It wasn't really worth going through the pretense. Nobody really thought that John Prescott would take charge when winter lear was away. So I think we're so much discussion about this. Who's in charge because we we tend not really had the system with the prime minister has been incapacitated rather than on holiday and this is cast into sharp relief. The absence of a real British system of deputizing. When Gordon Brown went on holiday he would take all of his staff system so he could run the country from his from his shank. And of course this might have contributed to the prime minister's illness when you contracts and the virus aren't really medical supplies that can help you. You've got to take it easy. And her faith in your body's immune system and you've got to let immune system take its course even when you predinner ventilator is just really buying time to see if your immune system can win the battle against the virus so vast we do need together strength and now perhaps the absence of a functioning. Deputy is what leads? Boorda's Johnson to work so much when he was when he was sick and I think that when we come to draw lessons to learn from this crisis and there will be a great many of those lessons to learn. We need to look a bit more closely at the system of deputizing under the British mood of government. Now James The news that Boris Johnson had been admitted to an. Icu was breaking cabinet via conference. Call by Mark said well. Is he going to be taking on an increased role while burst trump's in his absence in the cabinet secretary among the most senior civil servant of it you will obviously dominant? Rahm is going to rely on him for advice. Because there's a question about what the proper constitutional procedures are arm on various points. I mean there are two things were reflecting on. One is one of the reasons why born so keen to carry on working. Last week was that there is a feeling number. Ten government need can of riding hard by the center to deliver results. I think that that was one of the motivations for him carrying on working needs easy to be wise off to the event but I think there is also a question here which is because the British prime minister is the head of government not head of state. There's not going to medical team. Downing Street that there is inside the White House designed to look after the president and I think when you think about all of the security protections at all for example put in place to protect the prime minister do now wonder whether a situation where he was self isolating his flat and takings in temperature and ended up having a video conference. Call for doctor before going to hospital again. These easy to be wise also event but was that the right way to handle it. Do you need. If he's pandemics all going to become a more common feature of life do you need some coin dove medical setup in Whitehall to try and ensure that you can keep these can key decision-makers healthy and out of hospital in these times? That is a difficult question. Moving something that is going to have to be looked at the end of us. It's probably worth mentioning as well. That's under Boris Johnson. Number Ten's influence within government had become even greater be this great triangle power in the middle of government. So you'd have a joint team of special advisers running number ten and betrays ARY. This is the point. This as Javid resigned as chancellor over a few weeks ago so you go out to the prime minister at the head of this number ten Cabinet Office Treasury Triangle of power. Realistically if he's not there it will be somebody else number. Ten News really rangelands operation. It won't be dominant grab but because this is relatively new and emerging system of government. Nobody's risen it down really. There isn't a sort of a program that somebody else can pick up automatically but also the way that the virus response had been constructed. The cabinet was divided into four separate committees pretty much self-governing designs so they can keep going. If somebody will be to be knocked out by the virus I guess. Nobody quite imagined that that that person would be the prime minister. Thank you phrase that thank you James..
