He was speaking on and CBS's face the nation and he said that video is more than a year old Before Maria Elena Vich was actually removed and that the president is within his rights to remove an ambassador for any reason so Franco. Can you really have a tape that comes out and contradicts with the president has been saying and this revelation from John Bolton coming out and contradicting the president accident what he's been saying and then have the Republicans in the Senate. Just end the trial this this week with no witnesses I think puts a lot of a lot of pressure on the Republicans cons- to bring in more witnesses You know this is a difficult position for them to be in As we pointed out Mitt Romney Susan Collins are certainly calling going in And Democrats are warning them that if they don't they may have to hear from it when the book actually comes out that's NPR White House correspondent Franko or Donas. Thank you thank you. Let's check in now. On the corona virus. Three thousand people are known to have the virus. Most of them live in China. At least eighty people have died as as a result. The epicenter is in Wuhan. A city of eleven million people and cases are turning up around the world there are five confirmed cases in the. US There are some in Hong Kong to which is where NPR's Jason Bogan is and Jason. What are authorities saying so? There's a lot of concern here in Hong Kong about the potential for many of these cases from mainland China to come into Hong Kong. They've already shutdown. Anyone wants to come from who obey province which is where Wuhan City Won. The epicenter is. They've said nobody from who may pop province can come in and anybody who's been there in the last S.. Fourteen days is banned unless you can show that you are actually a resident of Hong Kong. The health system has already said that just dealing with the number of patients that are suspected suspected cases. Right now they're having to set up `isolation wards everybody that comes in with a flu they have to potentially test them and already straining meaning the healthcare system. Some people say to the limit. So there's great concern that if the number of actual cases goes up dramatically things could be quite severe here. Does it sound Mike. These measures may be too late. Certainly a lot of health officials are saying that it appears that trying to keep this genie in the bottle. Donald is just not working one official. The other day was saying that of the confirmed cases that they have in Hong Kong. He'd been asked whether these are residents of Wuhan or not. Not everyone that we are dealing with at. The moment is listed as a Chinese citizen. So that means they could be from Hong Kong could mean there from what it could mean there from wherever it's a real issue of trying to figure out who is at the highest risk and try to limit their movement. Obviously people also want to get out of Wuhan because that cities now now. Under lockdown people aren't allowed to move around sounds like they're having shortages of food in the markets there so there's a great incentive for some people to WANNA get out of Wuhan on income down here to Hong Kong. Absolutely sounds like a chaotic situation. We know that Lunar New Year is upon us. It's a big holiday season in China and Hong Kong to Hans Mayer has offered to step down He and other Communist Party officials have been criticized for responding too slowly. Are you hearing Hong. Kong's residents complaining in about The mainland slow response. I am definitely hearing some of that. Frustration I'm also hearing frustration of people not being honest about what what their symptoms are when they come into the hospital or where. They're coming from the moment. People are just really scared. I I was actually at the border with from Hong Kong across the borders orders. Shenzhen people are coming across a lot of people come on the train and its talked to people there and they is almost like panic and some of these towns. People aren't going out at all. People are trying to figure out how to get out out. There's great concern here in Hong Kong and there's great concern north of here in China where it's really the bulk of the cases that are coming up and officials are not calling this a pandemic yet correct correct. They're not calling it a pandemic which would imply a global disease outbreak if it was a pandemic at the moment they're still arguing that this is limited the China you've got cases in the United States cases popping up in Europe. Yeah things are coming up all over the place but in terms of sustained transmission. You're not seeing that obviously in many of these other parts of the world starting to some researchers today and they said that this definitely has the potential to become a global pandemic. They were predicting and some of their modeling that you could be having a hundred and fifty thousand cases a day in Shaun King and that's just amazing that the volume that potentially could be out there by what some of these epidemiologists our our modeling Jason One other thing we're thinking about are the massive protests that we we saw In Hong Kong against Beijing's rule. What's happening to those protests? Are People still out in the streets just even last night of just. That's my hotel. There were some violent clashes between police and protestors protestors here in the center of Hongkong further north the health authorities were trying trying to set up an isolation centre in housing. It's a public housing. The state and there was this one building that was empty and they're going to use it as an isolation centre for people who are suspected affected of having the corona virus and people there took into the streets set up barricades set fire to the building. Protests are continuing and certainly this corona virus is adding to that. I think at first the protesters were holding back. Feeling like that didn't necessarily want to get out into the streets in the time when everyone's being told not to gather but we've seen that change and yesterday definitely. There was hundreds of people in the streets and riot. Police came out and there was some some violent clashes isn't happened that's NPR's Jason Bogosian in.
