"Support his unfounded claims of widespread fraud. And they cheered when Mr Trump's motorcade drove past on route to Virginia for him to play golf. In a lengthy address of the White House on Friday. Mr Trump lorded the contribution he said his administration have made to the development of Corona virus, vaccines and treatments for the disease. What he didn't mention, though, with the soaring rates of deaths and infections in the United States, and that's now right across the country. 70 average for new cases is now more than 141,000. Earlier this year. North Dakota was one of a handful of states that never entered a lockdown, but things there have got a lot worse. On Friday, the Republican governor Doug Burgum, Announced a new new restrictions and called on those North Dakotans sense of community. One shared experience We all have in North Dakota is dealing with blizzards. After getting hit by a huge snowstorm. We're all personally responsible for shoveling our own driveways. Local government takes care of plowing the streets and the state takes care of plowing state and federal highways. We all do our part individuals taking individual responsibility. And government bringing rules and resource is to dig out quickly and efficiently. This can also be one of those times working together as neighbors as North Dakotans and as human beings who care deeply for each other. We can slow the spread of co vid and emerge stronger than ever. Aspect attitude. Dr Joshua Wind, the chief health strategist in North Dakota. Things have got in the wrong direction. That is, for sure. The ultimate criterion I would say is when hospital capacity becomes exceeded, and fortunately, that has not come yet, but we're knocking on the door step so that Indicates that we clearly need to take more aggressive steps before the hospital system becomes overwhelmed. What has North Dakota being hit so hard now? Do you think I think for a couple of reasons one is that we were, fortunately were spared Ah, lot of the initial onslaught that occurred mainly on the coasts of the United States. Especially along the East coast in New York City. So I think North Dakotans got low old to some degree into a false sense of security. So everything is okay. This is just the problem of those big cities. We don't have to worry about it because we're rural state. Well, unfortunately, the virus doesn't pick favorites. And has now spread here. I think the second thing is that North Dakotans are pretty tough individuals, very self reliant, and I think that it's on Lee now becoming apparent to them that just being tough isn't enough when you're facing a virus like this, so we clearly need as a community as North Dakotans. To come together for the common good and start doing the things or doing more of the things that we know work of words like toughen and self reliant and code words for libertarian. Perhaps Well, I think that North Dakotans don't like to be told what to do. That is true, but they do care about their neighbors because it's a rural state. I mean, many people are related to each other, and we work and small communities and therefore community relationships are important. And what we're seeing now is that many of the communities are really pushing hard on the need to mask the need to limit the size of gatherings, too close certain business operations early so that people don't congregate. So we're seeing that happened across the state. And I'm very pleased to see that I'm in a week ago, One senior public health official in North Dakota wrote that she was accused of being Tyrant, a socialist a Nancy for supporting earlier mitigation measures. Some could she have had more backing. Do you think from the governor? The governor is a really smart guy, In my opinion, who really cares and what he has been trying to do. Is to get the important outcome and the important outcome is a behavioral change. I think one can debate the best way of Getting that, But the intentions were clearly good, which is to try to convince people of the importance of this. He has made very impassioned statements that I know he believes off how important it is to do things like mask to limit the size of gatherings to wash your hands and so forth, So he has been trying very hard to do the right thing. The rest of us haven't always followed his lead, and now we we really do need to get the message out there that people really need to do this not only for themselves, but for their friends and neighbors and the consequences off not doing that, or that we're going to have more deaths. Hospital capacity will be overwhelmed and we will have a very, very regrettable situation. I don't want to draw you into politics. But in the closing days of the Trump Presidency. Do you feel that? He did get it wrong with the coronavirus, Panda. Me. Most countries have struggled with this. Having said this. I do believe the United States could have and should have done better. That's not a political statement. That's just an honest assessment off where we are their country as large and as Successful and other areas as the United States, I think could have done better. Let's hope that my fellow Americans learned from this and we do better in the future. That was Dr Joshua Wind, the chief health strategist for the U. S. State of North Dakota.

"Martin Vizcarra on Monday has led to ever growing demonstrations. Mr Vizcarra was voted out of office by Congress accused of accepting bribes during a previous term. A state governor. He's been replaced by the head of the Peruvian Congress Manual Marina. He's made an appeal for calm. Mr. His car's supporters say Congress used the corruption allegations as a as a pretext to seize power five months before the next presidential election. I've been speaking to Peruvian investigative journalist Gustavo Gorriti. Person discovered was declared morally impaired on perpetual basis. The reason that was ostensibly taken is that in the course of the widespread investigation, some leaders and industry leaders also Off the lava Giotto case in Peru on Off the department off, Okay, We're in the south of Peru, but they were in the initial stages off investigation. There are not even formalized such a decisive course of action. Was taken by Congress in which about 50% have problems with prosecutors as well. Discoverer had only nine volts of heads on and with general elections in the mist, so they didn't have any real reason to between. Because there was an investigation going on in the proper way with the prosecutor's office on I think they wanted to prevent what would happen in inter solutions on do. They also work this subject off some investigations related to the lab. A gentle case on what they really wanted was to have power and to be able to disperse the prosecutor's team and all the rest. They've tried this before. Haven't made to try to get rid off Mr Fiske. Carla, that is correct. Try that. In September, they were close to shitting the majority. Now they were trying to get votes and half made lots and lots of promises among the different groups on now, you see that that sort of coalition is dissembling. Many of those are both for the impeachment are saying that they won't give a vote of confidence to the new Cabinet that has been put together. But it was important thing is that people understood perfectly. What was behind that. I'm the kind of mass protest rallies, marches, mobilization demonstrations that you have seen around has no president after the kind of massive mobilizations that brought about the authoritarian government of Alberto Fujimori in the year, 2000 And I would say that in some respects they're mobilized even higher numbers of people. What the the country why demonstrations toe two days ago were unprecedented in Lima. The police reacted with brutality, but it didn't deter the demonstrators. And those who've taken to the streets. What What do they want? They want the president to be reinstated to. They are not explicit about that. They are very explicit, very clear about wanted these people out of government what would be the solution afterwards? A couple of solutions have been trade out. The most logical one could be to reinstate Mr Reese, Kara and half his term and in the normal way next July. He would have a month off government again a general election to supervise and carry out And then the other most important thing. True continue the country wide mobilization and actions against the covet against the pandemic on to prevent a second way as the one that is bringing so much havoc in Europe. And if that happened in Europe, if it good come now to Peru, and you have to understand with with all this mass demonstrations in the streets and on that the percentage of contagion would grow tremendously.

"Martin Vizcarra on Monday has led to ever growing demonstrations. Mr Vizcarra was voted out of office by Congress accused of accepting bribes during a previous term. A state governor. He's been replaced by the head of the Peruvian Congress Manual Marina. He's made an appeal for calm. Mr. His car's supporters say Congress used the corruption allegations as a as a pretext to seize power five months before the next presidential election. I've been speaking to Peruvian investigative journalist Gustavo Gorriti. Person discovered was declared morally impaired on perpetual basis. The reason that was ostensibly taken is that in the course of the widespread investigation, some leaders and industry leaders also Off the lava Giotto case in Peru on Off the department off, Okay, We're in the south of Peru, but they were in the initial stages off investigation. There are not even formalized such a decisive course of action. Was taken by Congress in which about 50% have problems with prosecutors as well. Discoverer had only nine volts of heads on and with general elections in the mist, so they didn't have any real reason to between. Because there was an investigation going on in the proper way with the prosecutor's office on I think they wanted to prevent what would happen in inter solutions on do. They also work this subject off some investigations related to the lab. A gentle case on what they really wanted was to have power and to be able to disperse the prosecutor's team and all the rest. They've tried this before. Haven't made to try to get rid off Mr Fiske. Carla, that is correct. Try that. In September, they were close to shitting the majority. Now they were trying to get votes and half made lots and lots of promises among the different groups on now, you see that that sort of coalition is dissembling. Many of those are both for the impeachment are saying that they won't give a vote of confidence to the new Cabinet that has been put together. But it was important thing is that people understood perfectly. What was behind that. I'm the kind of mass protest rallies, marches, mobilization demonstrations that you have seen around has no president after the kind of massive mobilizations that brought about the authoritarian government of Alberto Fujimori in the year, 2000 And I would say that in some respects they're mobilized even higher numbers of people. What the the country why demonstrations toe two days ago were unprecedented in Lima. The police reacted with brutality, but it didn't deter the demonstrators. And those who've taken to the streets. What What do they want? They want the president to be reinstated to. They are not explicit about that. They are very explicit, very clear about wanted these people out of government what would be the solution afterwards? A couple of solutions have been trade out. The most logical one could be to reinstate Mr Reese, Kara and half his term and in the normal way next July. He would have a month off government again a general election to supervise and carry out And then the other most important thing. True continue the country wide mobilization and actions against the covet against the pandemic on to prevent a second way as the one that is bringing so much havoc in Europe. And if that happened in Europe, if it good come now to Peru, and you have to understand with with all this mass demonstrations in the streets and on that the percentage of contagion would grow tremendously. But it would be devastating toe Peru infections are likely to

"Well, yes, if you have thought not to Russian imperialism and again sort of proof of the fact that this has become somewhat of a geopolitical vaccine, race or vaccine war as much as anything else, Brazil, one of the hardest hit countries by the coronavirus. Is resuming trials of a vaccine developed by a Chinese firm after a brief suspension. Nancy first Why was there a suspension? Big officially because of a severe adverse incident, which was reported to be a death of a volunteer. And so it appears that it took a couple days to confirm that the death of the volunteer was not related to the Vaccination, but it's interesting to Nina's point about the geopolitical implications of these tests. There's also local element in Brazil because both sorrow has long criticized the use of a Chinese vaccine on depart because the sand pile halo governor who has pinned its political ambitions on the Chinese vaccine is expected to run against Barcelona and 2022. So this is manifested itself and sort of tit for tat within Brazil over whether this is the best vaccine to be testing in Brazil on DSA So's the week began with the suspension, which was criticized and Sena's perhaps overreaction to Both scenario Now the leaders surprisingly rejecting you, Ziva vaccine despite the fact that as you point out, Brazil has one of the highest covert race that rates in the world. Now let's move to Peru, where protests have broken out after lawmakers there voted to oust President Martin Vizcarra, the head of Peru's Congress has been sworn in in his place. Nancy, This isn't the first impeachment vote that this president has been subject to what was the reason that lawmakers gave for the ouster? That's right. I mean, he just survived a new attempt in September, and the lawmakers would say the official reason is sort of his management of covert 19 and allegations that he took bribes while he was serving as a regional governor. But I think to the Peruvians were protesting this on the streets. They would say that this was about his bid to push measures to end decades of corrupt politics and that what these politicians were doing, the critics and some of those protests was would say is protecting their own interests because he threatened it. He threatened to get through the things that like there Um, bility to get immunity in office and just to give you a sense of how powerful it is their people improve, who run from politics to gain immunity in a country where where politics and corruption or seem to run hand in hand, And so this has led to, um, widespread condemnation, among some, um, in Prue and um and it's it's a signal, I think Um, to those who were hoping for reforms that this nascent drive to hold the powerful accountable has been brought to a halt. You mentioned Vizcarra pushed an anti corruption campaign and was one of the most Popular presidents in recent times. Some some are calling this a cool. Do we know how legitimate these charges against the president work? Well, they're from a decade earlier when he was governor. It Z. There's no evidence that this is some sort of level of corruption that has warranted it the way that parliamentarians have many of them by the way, facing their own corruption charges. There's been nothing to show that this has had substantial effect on his governance, and it's It's hard for me to answer that question directly because of the charges and countercharges. But in a country where some Parla tint parliamentarians are under charges for, um, crimes, asshole, I have homicide. It's The levels of corruption That's even being alleged on him, I think became a way to remove from for power rather than based on merit, but really grounds for action related to his anti corruption campaign. Nina Peru has experienced one of the world's worst covert outbreaks. How might this political instability impact how the country's handling the pandemic? Well, it's devastating. I think for Peru, which was a zoo, you say already facing very tough conditions, despite a very strict lockdown, Um the economic devastation you know, couldn't be stopped on by. I think to Nancy's point and he corruption allegations. Ah, very effective tool for populists on Ben, You interim President is head of the Congress. Mary Nya. He's backed a number of populist measures, including things like Suspending Highway toll payments s. Oh, you know, I think that this is Very disruptive for Peru. Human Rights Watch is saying that this poses a serious threat to the rule of law in Latin America on and you know, it's coming a time when when Peru is at its most vulnerable.

"The heroes of the health system and pleads for the brave Peruvians fighting this virus authorities here are doing all they can to try and curb the spread of covert nineteen it was a total of almost emotional futsal proves president Martin Vizcarra took some of the most drastic measures in the region announcing an almost immediate locked down in the middle of March well numbers was still low and it was a wise move according to infect all just talk to and what they could do so Indonesia is the soap is one of the medium we mounted to the honest at the health system in Peru was seen about the wait even before coronavirus there weren't enough intensive care vets the medical system needed updating so we imposed a very early look down to prepare to increase capacity the first three weeks show the great results the spread of the virus slow it's a rising now but it bought us time to get more bets and train more people with numbers now rising fost prezent he's gotta is keeping up the pressure to stay vigilant given almost daily television updates all the while they're in there more people they don't show you that it's a serious problem what's happening and pedal and we have to fix it together we are a part of history that will change our behavior so when we overcome these difficult times we won't return to normality but it's not a virus that affects humanity equally especially when as many as seventy percent of Peruvians rely on fully paid work in the informal economy the lockdown has pushed many to the limit all I wanted to come up with what they want to travel we're going home because nobody's working we left there were villages so we could work for it was families future so we could send money back home to improve their lives but we've been thrown out of our rooms because who are jobless the danger is that these people returning home risk spreading the virus often eighty seven weeks of lockdown cracks have started to show some parts of Bruce struggling more than others especially more remote areas like the Amazon but the president is seen as having done a good job for now Cindy Sanborn is from the invested that they'll Pacifico in Lima I think as often happens in these cases there's a lot of public support for the president he has also proven himself to be a more effective leader and and figure for the nation in this crisis than he was doing beforehand right now he's widely admired and respected and listened to between the fact that the numbers and the spread of the virus it's not being slowed as much as we'd like and given that their elections next year I think that road will be rougher for V. scattered in the months ahead since December and ending that report by Katie what's time to turn away from the parade of ours for a few minutes and pay tribute to one of the most influential figures in African music his death was announced last night Tony Allen was a virtue as a Nigerian drama who together with Fela Kuti created the afrobeats sound in the nineteen sixties and seventies fusing west African sounds with American funk and jazz he traveled all over the world with cooties Africa seventy band here is speaking to the BBC last year Ellen drummer composer play different music in my life from now on and then the ads at this point you know I said we'll have to stick on one particular five which have been coming from north of a long time in which we went through this afrobeat so six of British musician and producer Brian and you take any Allen he's been telling me why he was so influential he's one of those people who musicians pay lot of attention to so I think he had a lot of influence on a lot of other people's music so although I don't imagine many members of the public knows much about Tony Abbott and it would have certainly had his influence how good a drama we'll see I I think you rather ratings and you I think I said I thought he was the greatest drummer who ever lived so yes I do rather rates when I first heard him back in nineteen seventy two I had never heard anything like this and I thought this is really music from another planet you know this is this is something we should be paying attention to and for twenty five years I think the people you've got to listen to this guy more made him such a great drummer and I guess an innovative drama you know most of the music that all of us do he's a sort of version of African music actually few I'm sure in the future when people look back at the history of popular music in these last fifty years so sort of regarded as a sub brunch of African music because that's where we'll be come from Tony was one of the greatest innovators in that area he really invented a new way of thinking about rhythm it's a bit hard to explain without being technical but essentially it's a hybrid between Africans and Anglo American and European and even Arabic beeps they will come out in his drumming so he really brought together so many threads of music with his drumming and I think that's why the music is so versatile because it can support all sorts of things going on on top of it people will remember Fela Kuti is as the man who brought afrobeats took her to a wider audience because afrobeat have existed without Tony Allen I don't think so and I I think fellow also knew that that was the case Fellers said without Tony Allen there's no afrobeat it was a brilliant idea of Tony's and the great thing about him he was a lovely person the great thing about him is that he really never broke a sweat he played so gently and so quietly quite unlike a lot of rock drums he was very very gentle player but very exciting his dynamic range too yes I was just the the I mean there are some sessions that you can watch on the internet of the universe you have the internet gives you access to all sorts of things you might not expect and some recording sessions and as you say he's he's incredibly still his face is still even though he's playing these incredibly complicated rhythms it's he he is cool listening absolutely this is the coolest man I ever met you know change music without once breaking a sweat and I'm going despite that sort of a parent gentleness they I mean just just for a musical times a sort of complexity the syncopation of those rhythms I mean it's it's really hard to do isn't it it's very hard to do and it's very hard to learn even there's one song that fascinated me for so many years could I like bone close I must've listened to that a thousand times by that and I still don't understand how he's playing what he's playing it's so natural on the one hand you know you feel immediately if you want to dance when you actually listen to what he's doing figure out how he's making network and if you say a nice man and a and a modest mambo again yes he was a real gentle person very sweet person Friday night paying tribute to Tony Allen the.

died suddenly at the age of seventy nine then teamed up with for the Coogee in the sixties to create a new musical style afrobeat fusion of west African music and American jazz and funk BBC world news thank you for the news more news at the top of the Hollister because if you come across throughout the day here on the BBC world service it's all in because a jumble of most real welcome to Newsday is how far we look at the economic impact of the corona virus pandemic above him a push by the Ethiopian prime minister for wealthy countries the council debts owed by African countries will be hearing about Beirut when millions have lost their jobs and also get reaction to president trump's decision to keep meat plants in the United States open and as you heard in the news or you might have heard of the news the legendary major drama Tony Oliva has died aged seventy nine we will be remembering it in the course of this awful now we've all been following the huge economic impact caused around the world by the pandemic damage which is only starting to be understood in the set to worsen in the coming months as more data comes in and the pace of layoffs accelerates so it's against this backdrop the questions are being Austin out with is the poorest and most indebted economies could get some kind of relief well the G. twenty club of wealthy nations has already announced that relief measures I do that to me to approve of the prime minister of Ethiopia I'll be off my did an article in The New York Times on Thursday said more must be done the two payments he says should be at least postponed until the pandemic is overall counseled all together that would allow African countries he accused cockle the current crisis and bounce back but also to invest more in health services well to discuss this you know joined by Yvonne Mongol the economist for sub Saharan Africa witnesses capital thank you very much for joining us this morning Yvonne do you think that the cancellation would be helpful to talk yes I think it would die if you just look at how much a lot of such an African countries spend on debt it's a multiple of their healthcare expenditure also gonna for example spends five times as much as its interest payments as a dozen healthcare domestically so holding up a fraction of that was a suspended what is for twenty twenty okay on twenty twenty one if you really substantial funds that could be redirected into other sectors of the healthcare so you raise two things number one let me start with the first one of course being the nature of the debt you're talking about you know all about multilateral debts are we talking about by laughter that's a because some arguments will be that country still need to get the bond markets in order to voter absolutely and that's a very good point I think we are we are prepared to talk about mall to the actual debts as well as a bilateral debts to China in particular we don't think private lenders but the private sector your bond investors I should be bailed in because that will significantly impact Africa's access to credit post the pandemic and constant still has huge infrastructure needs and would like it to continue getting access going forward and then you also talked about the fact that this money would go to words the health sector for example to a lake of the argument argues in his article but then again there's a possibility that that money might be diverted to other things not necessarily valves that's a good point and it's it's a very broad question and unfortunately there's no chaos its attacks but if you look at which countries will probably be most accountable and public use it's almost quickly it's the public those are the most democratic on the continent those it's a strong civil society and media and also those where the bulk of taxes don't come from commodity sectors we find out those countries in particular tend to be more accountable to the electorate as me about don't talk to me about countries like Nigeria for example the oil prices are pretty much crumbled depends a lot on the oil how much of a difference with the consolation of their debts make well it it could be a significant so what in the case of Nigeria D. the budget receives revenue but only for the six about two thirds of revenue for the budget comes in your sector and if we know that all revenues put going to drop by more than a house so it would be a significant for Niger just give me an idea the amount they spend on debt service payments about two thirds of their revenues so just some of the cancellation of a fraction of that would really significant resources for other sectors allowing you know Malawi well done to you come from a lot of yourself forty dollars correct not so much and we've we've paid payments are being made to those who need it there about one million households and small businesses will benefit apart from this arrangement is this something that is sustainable something that you think would benefit if indeed debt relief is given to allow I mean many people benefit from it the two leaders given to belong I mean that's right mentioned several houses will have access to this and it would be significant as you're probably aware of the courts and Malawi dates suspend or at least putting into that too for the lock down because they thought the government had and provided a safety net for households and this I think will go a long way in terms of mitigating the impact of the locked on that so I think that is material and indeed if they do get some debt relief it would go a long way and allow for that payment to be sustained for several months briefly one what if you can what are the chances that these that come out to be counseled will anybody be paying attention to the opposite of what you say yes the ticket from the March elections I will hope in China comes on board as well thank you really good to talk to you and thank you very much alone even hung low economists will subs are not Fricker within Austin's capital now who has been locked down for nearly seven weeks it took some of the strictest measures in South America but wanted was quick to take action is not stop the cases of convicts nineteen from rising there are currently more than thirty thousand cases in the one thousand deaths making it the worst affected countries in the

S. government can see through as president Martin Vizcarra took some of the most drastic measures in the region announcing an almost immediate lockdown in the middle of March well numbers was still low and it was a wise move according to infect all just talked to Eduardo go through so Indonesia is the sole bid one of the medium we mounted to the honest at the health system in Peru will sing about the wait even before coronavirus there weren't enough intensive care vets the medical system needed updating so we imposed a very early look down to prepare to increase capacity the first of three weeks show the great results the spread of the virus zero it's a rising now that it bought us time to get more baths and train more people with numbers now rising fost prezent he's gonna is keeping up the pressure to stay vigilant given almost daily television updates while they're in there more people they don't show you that I mean it's a serious problem what's happening and pedal and we have to fix it together we are a part of history that will change our behavior so when we overcome these difficult times we won't return to normality we will have a new way of living and acting in society we need to adapt to the change that the virus will demand of us a virus that affects all of humanity some of the more money that no my most I think they do not live on BBC one of four men but it's not a virus that affects humanity equally especially when as many as seventy percent of Peruvians rely on fully paid work in the informal economy in the past few weeks crowds of people have been trying to make long journeys back to their villages the lockdown has pushed many to the limit I wanted to come up with what they want to cut off with a nice we're going home because nobody's working we left there were villages so we could work for it was families future so we could send money back home to improve their lives but we've been thrown out of our rooms because who are jobless we don't have money to pay the danger is that these people returning home risk spreading the virus local governments have been quarantining them whether a cat is sitting at Seattle center that I can do nothing else on this list but I also thought these past few days we've survived because of the charity of Peruvian people but I'm not going to be a suspect is from northern Peru but went to Lima for cancer treatment which then got canceled because of the lockdown she now has to spend two weeks in a hotel before she can go home die in the model it's got a nice giving them less of the hour the people from the north they sooner go naked to ensure you don't go without in Lima nobody even gives you a Cup of water not sure if it's fear of infection but it's like that there after nearly seven weeks of lockdown cracks have started to show some parts of Bruce struggling more than others especially more remote areas like the Amazon but the president is seen as having done a good job for now Cindy Sanborn is from the I see that then Pacifico in Lima I think as often happens in these cases there's a lot of public support for the president he has also proven himself to be a more effective leader and and figure for the nation in this crisis than he was doing beforehand right now he's widely admired and respected and listened to between the fact that the numbers and the spread of the virus it's not being slowed as much as we'd like and given that there are elections next year I think that road will be rougher for me scattered in the months ahead and that two portholes by Katie Watson in south pond no did you know the top ten coronavirus clusters in the United States all prisons meat packing plants and a navy battleship so it came as a surprise that the district president trump ordered the country's meat packing plants to remain open he said he wants to protect the nation's food supply of an estimated three thousand three hundred walkers have been diagnosed.
