Coronavirus update: Mexico

"Cove in 19 death tolls of Spain and France to join the U. S. Brazil the UK in Italy in the top five deadly isnot breaks The U. S of Southern neighbors seem to have had a far milder outbreak, but a closer look at the data reveals an incomplete picture. Katie Face correspondent Shannon Young reports from Oaxaca. The day after Mexico overtook the cove a death toll of France to join the five countries in the world. With the heaviest losses to the pandemic. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador addressed the nation. To blame the media. Hey, sis In the end venues in Mexico, Yes. He said. Conservatives and their media mouthpieces focus on the rising death toll without clarifying the differences in population between European nations in Mexico, the president pointed out when looked at from a per capita perspective, France and Spain were harder head. He offered an apology to Spain for the media comparison, adding that the conservative sensationalist press is despicable. Is a Marine. Mexico had the advantage of time to prepare preventative measures and a robust response is covert, 19 closed in The signs were promising at first, Unlike in the U. S. The government coordinated a unified federal response. In a synchronized move. Schools nationwide took classes online while government workers set up home offices. Messaging was clear. Stay home gave thee in Gaza Gate up in Gaza for Colombia and Mexico is Corona virus Response coordinator Dr Lopez got became an overnight celebrity by hosting our long press conferences each evening in an unscripted and easy to follow style that inspired trust and one public approval. But the strategy he leads has been a mixed bag. In a country where roughly half of the population lives in poverty. The government did not provide direct economic stimulus checks to tide over citizens unable to work. Many self employed vendors and small business owners had little choice but to try to make ends meet. Mexican leaders also opted for an extremely limited testing policy. Mexico has one of the world's lowest per capita testing rates and the highest rate of positive cases per test. One out of every two people tested for the virus in Mexico has a result showing they are infected, not even report it moment on any task force leader. Lopez got ill has repeatedly rejected calls to increase testing, saying the sentinel method of monitoring samples of symptomatic populations. Conserves resource is and is consistent with epidemiological modeling practices. Okay, Spirit Teresa settle in revista Entrevista made equipment under the so called Sentinel surveillance model on Ly one in approximately 10 patients showing Covad like symptoms but deemed healthy enough for out patient monitoring is eligible for a diagnostic test. How it works is you have to perform sickness releases more. A notary's received a test in the southern state of Guerrero after several days of symptoms. When I went in, I didn't have a fever. And so I had to say to compensate, saying I don't have it right now. But Oh, my God. It was terrible Look two days ago, and it wass, But I like the way you express it. You have to perform illness in order to be believed His results took more than 30 days to come back. They were positive. Despite minimal testing rates. Mexico has a formidable accumulated backlog. According to government data, more than 11% of all tests performed in Mexico are still awaiting results. Some of those results have been pending since April. Morning autobiography, says he was told to expect results within 72 hours and that the lab didn't usually bother to communicate negatives to the local health center. Not having the results for that long, definitely influenced my behavior. Give me examples. Perhaps the most prominent is that I had to go out and buy groceries. Um, I would normally do that because I live alone. But in this case scenario I would have Capt. Much deeper into my networks to find help. Mexico has repeatedly blown past official predictions regarding the outbreaks. Peak response later, Dr Lopez got till now says the first wave is likely to end sometime in October. Task force members have publicly expressed hope in developing herd immunity while building up hospital capacity to handle caseloads. The United Kingdom initially floated the idea of a herd immunity approach before medical experts pointed out that massive preventable loss of life the strategy would entail. Currently, the UK ranks only behind the U. S. And Brazil and covert deaths. The broad and vocal medical consensus to debunk heart immunity has been lacking in Mexico. And progressive voices that tenaciously questioned. Past administrations have been relatively muted during the current administration, the first self described leftist government to come to power in nearly a century. Without widespread testing in Mexico to aid an early detection of covert cases or timely results for the relatively few tests performed demand for hospital beds. Khun B. Hard to predict before patients arrive at emergency room doors. As with much of Mexico's outbreak dimensions, what's within public view is the tip of the iceberg. Shannon Young. KPFA

I'm in week NYC the convention of panels and showcases for environmental advocates to discuss climate action I think around the United Nations climate summit during his speech Newsome praised his state progress on environmental issues and its position as a global leader in the fight against climate change he said that in California fossil fuels are becoming the out liars not the norm alternative energy into the state of California is fossil fuel energy alternative energy no longer defined by wind and solar and battery technology which are dominant now Connie's growing a fully functioning cap and trade program the most Ignatius low carbon green growth goals in the United States of America there's nothing left for me to sign it's a hundred percent across the board. Kevin Phillips is the director of Sierra Club California she agreed with Newsome that California and they want to be proud of in terms of its track record in fighting for the environment he's right in that we've done a lot in this state and certainly when you compare it to the rest of the country and when you look at some of the timing we've we've done some of these things in California was pushing it should be a call and came up with its first zero emission vehicle regulations back in the nineteen nineties so we have been a leader in many ways historically for the U. S. on various environmental issues. however Phyllis argue that California was still falling short in its self proclaimed role as global environmental leader. while Phillips agreed with news from decision at the state was improving renewable energy production and technology to put out the oil production export are still significant industries in California when it comes to transportation fossil fuel still dominate they will likely dominate unless we become more aggressive and the legislature and the governor becomes more aggressive in laying out a path for reducing production of oil in transitioning are an economy away from one specially in particular regions transitioning our economy in the state away from one that is dependent on oil production.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin Quietly Met With the Saudi Crown Prince

"Meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin met with Saudi Arabia's embattled crown prince Mohammad bin Salman today, the Saudi foreign minister posted a photo of the meeting on its Twitter account and late today the eve of glitzy three day investment conference in Saudi Arabia. Mnuchin has said he would not attend the conference but would discuss counter-terrorism efforts with Saudi officials Daniel wrenches reports. The US treasury secretaries canceled participation in the future investment initiative, showcase for crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman, economic reform plans, but Steven Mnuchin hasn't cancelled his visit and says they'll continue to talks on efforts to combat terrorism financing and countering Iran. Meanwhile, the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner says they'll still in the fact finding phase while new surveillance videos released by Turkey sharing. What's he still to be a Saudi agent leaving the consulates wearing Jamal Kushtia clothes shortly? After the Saudi gentlest was allegedly murdered in. What appears to have been an effort to cover it up Daniel wrenches, Washington. President Trump's main reason for avoiding major punishment for Saudi Arabia's detention and death of Jamal Khashoggi is coming under fire the arms deal of one hundred forty billion dollars with the kingdom. First of all. It's hardly one hundred forty billion dollars worth. It's only fourteen and a half billion so far and some of that amount results from previous deal under President Obama. The rest is non-binding promises. Then there are the even more inflated claims over the number of US jobs created by the sale starting at four hundred and fifty thousand the Washington Post says that would be more than the three hundred fifty five thousand employed by the total US military manufacturing sector of the economy. Trump. Escalated that to half a million US jobs, then six hundred thousand and finally over a million best case estimate would be no more than forty thousand jobs reporter, Simon Mark says Moore, it's a very live issue following the acknowledgement by the government in Riyadh off two weeks of lies the journalist Jamal Khashoggi did die violently in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Earlier this month. President Trump says he has no intention of scrapping a weapons deal with Saudi Arabia that he incorrectly claims will create one million jobs in America's defense sector. The reality is that it won't do any such thing. And the British government is also on defy for contemplating weapons sales to Riyadh. Not least because of the Saudi led military intervention in Yemen. It is estimated to have killed more than fifteen thousand innocent civilians. Jeremy hunt is Britain's Foreign Secretary. We do not pursue profit at any cost the relationship goes. As well beyond the commercial side. There's a strategic partnership in the region to try and bring peace and constrain the destabilizing activities of Iran. Nonetheless. Of course, there are going to be very very serious consequences. I'm not gonna say that because I I need to look at this investigation. We he's independent done the business in terms of being credible. And we'll send you to see how the Saudis this is the crucial thing how they will say react to the findings of the investigation. Then we'll take out his his critics say there's no need to wait for the investigation. There're djing western governments to block arm sales to Riyadh with FSN spotlight. I'm Simon marks lake is a veteran for correspondent who specialized in coverage of the Middle East. His latest book is the Iran agenda today, the real story inside Iran, and what's wrong with US policy. He told as Philip mulberry on the Sunday show that while Jamal kashogi was a sharp critic of Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin. He was hardly a revolutionary and was in fact of Royal lineage himself, he doesn't he come from a wealthy well-connected family the name, Adnan. Associ- might be familiar. He was the arms dealer multi-billion multi-billionaire. That's his uncle multi-billionaire guy involved in the wrong contra and numerous scandals of years past apparently he did not like inherit or get any of his uncle's money. But that gives you an idea of the family. He was a journalist. He was a worked as a diplomat. He was worked as adviser to the top Royal family princes, and he was very much part of the Saudi ruling elite. But he had his falling out, particularly when Muhammad then bin Salman, the NBS came to power, by the way, you don't get elected in Saudi Arabia. You. There's over well over one hundred princes of the king, the king has multiple wives. They each have several kids, and there's a lot of backstabbing figuratively and literally that goes on in the Royal family. And so when NBS came to power was in the outs, and he went into exile in the US. He. When Virginia became a columnist for the Washington Post, and he was a critic of Saudi Arabia, but a from still within the system itself, he was not calling for the overthrow of the monarchy and establishment of a democratic parliamentary system. He wanted to see changes. In the policy, and he had some ties with Muslims with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is a political Islam is group of conservative nature. But generally does want to see changes away from the kind of ultra right-wing. Fundamentalist version of Islam practice. What's called Wahabism? That's practiced in Saudi Arabia. Well. This it would appear that Mohammed bin Salman. The crown prince is quite thin skinned and any any even minor criticism is not tolerated. Yeah, we'll remember when he came to power one of the first things he did was imprisoned a bunch of fellow princes and multibillionaires in a fancy five star hotel, but block them in and in some cases, tortured them into basically giving up billions of dollars in return for their freedom. And that the other example was remember he was lauded for allowing women to drive right for finally changing Saudi policy, but just prior to the implementation of that law. He arrested a bunch of women who have been advocating that. So he if there's going to be any change he wants to make it. He doesn't want any kind of grassroots efforts organized opposition. And that's what the murder was all about in his father. The king is usually. Portrayed as quite debilitated. And consequently. An ephemeral kind of leader. Yeah. I mean, it's the sort of thing, that's shrouded in mystery. But as far as I can tell the guy is out of it, mentally is not really able to govern day-to-day. And and NBS is the the functioning leader of Saudi Arabia KPFA upfront has Brian Edwards as demont harbor, but director of research and analysis at the center in Washington DC, why the crown prince appears to have been involved in a plot to kill kashogi for one thing. He had ever is a is one.

Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia had very effectively gotten most of the western media to frame him as little more than a liberal reformer inside Saudi Arabia, and kind of erase everything else that you talked about. Not to describe him as a tyrant consolidating power within Saudi Arabia, and certainly not to spend much time on the war. He's prosecuting in Yemen. This seems to be like the first major public relations. Disaster from Mohammed bin Salman. Do you think? He just thought killing a Washington Post turn A-List wouldn't try this kind of tension. I have a feeling that he's saying, but we'll draw special attention as far as he is. You have to also remember this person has only come on the scene over the last three years three and a half years. He had no political experience as far as knowing what the world is about. So as far as I'm concerned, it's a lot of hubris. He thinks that whatever he does is gonna be bought by by the international community, especially by by Washington. And unfortunately, American journalists have really fallen or the this thing. He's he's you know, he left women Dr. Big deal. I mean, this is their right? Why would why why should they wait for somebody to let them drive? I mean, it's absurd flor- Florida for American actually some other western Europeans. Why shouldn't you penalty for this? This is great. This is his decorum. Does the society? This is for me. A lot of people in the United States. Surprisingly, so sold sold on on on this agenda of liberalisation that they actually forgot that this person really doesn't know what he's doing. And now all the has all come to all the chickens have come home.

"As part of the fall fund drive here at KPFA radio. We have no other option except opening these microphones, and frankly, begging you to support us as what it boils down to. Why don't we do it differently? Well, some ways of doing it that many of us would advocate a probably illegal. So we can't go that route. Other ways mean sacrificing your independence? What do I mean by that? What I mean is that if you accept commercials, and if you accept the public broadcasting alternative commercials, which are called corporate underwriting, but if you listen to public radio and public TV, they sure look and sound a lot like commercials. If you go that route you become either consciously or unconsciously dependent on that money. And the danger is that you alter your programming too. Not offend if not even worse than that to please your corporate sponsors. We don't have any corporate sponsors here. We don't even have foundation sponsors. We don't have any rich people sponsors..

'Abolish Ice' Rallying Cry Raises Tricky Political Questions

"Abolishing is has become a, rallying, cry for the democratic party's liberal wing. Including Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and upstart, house candidate Alexander or Cossio Cortez of New York who standard ten term. Congressman in New York democratic primary on today's upfront KPFA morning show veteran immigration activists Catherine tech Taqwa executive director of the national network for immigrant and, refugee rights told has Antonio Yukos's and Brian. Edwards St. Kurt that the problem is far, more complex than just abolishing ice a slogan is not a, strategy and that the slogan didn't quite capture the the, whole series of decades of policies that. Criminalise immigrants that really provide the mandate for is switches the instrument to carry Out this kind of community terror. That we've been witnessing and and it's all embedded within the, department of homeland security and the department of homeland security was created supposedly to guard our national security, and intertwined immigration policy within that context so to dismantle ice would be one thing but. It could another agency enforcement enforcing the same policies could take its place and the bigger hall really has to do with a transforming the policies which are complicated decades long that we we have that Really allow ice to carry out these kinds of practices so there's a lot of layers to what it means to abolish or dismantle ice and and even for for the general public but also for policymakers there's a question about whether in fact they can say we have introduced legislation. To abolish is but are they also prepared, to decriminalize immigration policy so I think we should do a little bit of, unpacking here just for the sake of institutional illiteracy because the the Republican attack on the apologize movement is this, means open borders In fact two different agency as I understand it customs and border protection. Patrols the border and the area. Around it intercepts people who've just crossed the border ice handles deportation proceedings inside the country they're the ones who go, pick, up people, at their home because of a speeding ticket they got five. Years ago they just trickled through the. System now and put in, jeopardy that's right the abolish ice movement is actually a relatively narrow focus on. That arm of the immigration enforcement apparatus right and you know as as slogans ago I think it probably does capture what is. Also taking place at. The board I'm I'm sure that's the intention and when most people here abolish is they're thinking, about the the agency border patrol as well and? Don't really understand technically you know the distinctions there are actually two eight sub agencies within ice there's one, for enforcement and removal from that's the one that we I think generally characterises As ice and then there's the investigative arm of of, ice, which which, also functions but it's true there those two and they work. In sync and increasingly what we've seen. Is that a lot of, the enforcement policies that Oriented towards. The border, have been, creeping inside so, you know, the border extends one hundred miles, so we're talking about enforcement even at the border that is regional in character jurisdiction of jurisdiction of of of the of the. Border patrol but it's you know it's it's again their agencies they're they're. Instruments of of policy and unless we change some of the. The laws that allow is an BP to to conduct itself in that way You know we will just be replacing one bad. Agency with another bat agency
