alone is not going to protect us V. the one device can be taken off from surfaces and studies have shown that the widest can stay on surfaces from hours to days now so that's why betting mosques together read frequent hand washing is something that should be practiced you know into our daily lives since of course you're going to mosques as well as in there I mean could everywhere in do a full tomorrow six o'clock Moscow nobody's asking people to read and ninety five instead you should not be wearing surgical masks Klopp mosques should not lost that you can make at home right and something very good that the government of India has done is very clearly communicate how to make good mosques at home we have made Moscow Tolman I made a friend then I go out there and I don't use a commercial Moscow user o'clock mas made at home thank you very much okay to severe yen in Beijing again the fear of the popular image is of of people in China being fairly happy about wearing most especially when there is a a virus like this around is not the situation and did it ever get to the point where it became mandatory that everyone just adopt them you know from the beginning of the outbreak it has been mandatory to wear face masks in public places in China even with quarantine home quarantine restrictions the guidance has been that you must isolate in your own room if you are are doing so at home with others that live in the same household but to wear masks when you might come in contact with them in your own house so these cars are starting to be realized but still people are wearing them and there's a long tradition of face masks here in China partly for the pollution when the air is smoggy people are wearing masks and also because of the sars outbreak from about twenty years ago now my understanding from experts is that these are largely designed to keep droplets in not out so they work really by preventing others from catching your germs if your already L. but as a doctor she said that it can be harmful if not used correctly and it may actually make you more complacent because there are many other ways to catch the virus or other germs our practical level I found even for myself or wearing something that covers your nose and mouth it makes it easier for you to be aware of when you are touching your face and that might help cut downs and contacts you just become much more vigilant about that when you're on public thanks you too I'm coming speaks tend to Hannity again he was the question about face small successful I suppose and IT you wearing a facemask and do you think they should be mandatory yeah well it's actually a cultural thing in South Korea so it's not something that's frowned upon so yes for work and I'm a teacher so we obviously do that at what everybody wears a if I had a lockdown we we couldn't believe our it means anything it was life was continuing as usual we were just aware of not being too close to each other I'm not going to big social gatherings where that place would be packed and olmak German museums those won't close their opening up now slowly that also on the buses you have hand sanitizer hand sanitizer just all over the place you can find them just anywhere walking into any supermarket they'll be there on the table hello they just make it very easy to follow all these new rules it doesn't feel like we're in a jail here in South Korea we we we really feel we are well protected we feel very safe here they're really happy to be here at the moment that's correct finally thank you you're listening to the BBC world service let's go to our next question which is from pole a retired professor in Carolina in India pulled from thank you very much for questioning as well as greatest economies such as the U. S. China UK Germany France Italy and Japan exports he are on the verge of a deep crisis now if and when this crisis looms over would be only has retained its position as the most robust economy in the world all three China hundred stuff that it didn't receive the command post stricter regulations knowledge as the economic superpower of the world okay thanks medical questions that has the position of the talk shifted as a result of code with nineteen and perhaps higher as the rather authoritarian states of China will it will it now be the model for people after what still seems terribly chaotic response from the United States to Kevin nineteen G. and Kim in South Korea is there a feeling in south careers you look between the different nations that Asia in particular China has dealt with cave at nineteen much better well we all know that when it broke out in the Han Chinese government hung government today or hiding the what was really happening and the actually caused a lot of the death toll understood that that is a very tarian regime and the system and the whole region it is and of course the older locked down and everything and it's a sometimes authoritarian system can be more looks like a more effective award is efficient than others systems but we understood that it would have maybe it would have been spread out this much if that the Chinese government dealt with the well in the beginning and if you compare with the the hall the management by the US and that that was the system and the Chinese system it is true that we are a little bit disappointed with who has missed we are as a whole that whole day or how much they were vulnerable to this kind of crisis thanks June civilian is back I think we lost you briefly that severe just trying to think it's momentous come with it's dealing with this crisis what's interesting about what's happened in China is that the government has now moved to cast itself as a world leader in virus responsible savior in it and that's a a propaganda line that's played very well domestically it distracts the Chinese public from anger that still exists over the government's initial handling of the outbreak expression of whistleblowers in China as a way to deflects responsibility but as the dust settles in China and also in other countries there will be greater reflection on what exactly happened how Beijing reacted and also this politicking that has occurred in the aftermath China's been trying to get into diplomatic brownie points as other nations at the height of crisis lobbying them to make positive comments publicly about Beijing's efforts to contain the outbreak China's even sought to export of protective equipment as a way to lend a helping hand even though those goods are largely being sold not donated I think in the long term this is going to divide the world even more between the US and China it's quite dangerous position geopolitically and possible that such tensions could spark interpersonal conflict for many nations there will likely be a rethink on how to engage China going forward and this comes after a period of time where many countries rate keen to do more business with Beijing thank you very much that's all we have time for for now we will be back right after the BBC world service news for more world questions Asia don't go away researchers are warning the pandemic will have a major long term effect on students of all ages this is not just going to be an academic loss there is going to also be very large potentially social emotional and mental health consequences to this event teachers are used to the so called summer slide that's a drop off in academic performance but just how severe might this one be on the next morning edition from NPR news and the program is underway.

"And in South Korea are in the middle of a tense political standoff in the relationship between the two countries rating military analyst retired four star general Barry McCaffrey joins us on the company's lined with some analysis of why this should worry Washington it seems like Japan is increasing controls on the export of products to South Korea and south Korea's president Sir says intentionally hurting they're already struggling economy is not good he said we will never again lose to Japan so this goes back pretty far yeah I think so I look at it this is actually a strategic challenge the United States of an enormous significance the two principal ally the United States in the world actually are the Japanese and the south Koreans are printable potential adversary is China and so having our two allies at each other's throats both economically and politically is is constructive most of the problem here as you point out is historical it will be our thousand years until the Pacific Rim forget the mass of atrocities that the Japanese imperial army placed on the Chinese the Indonesian the Burmese I mean you run the gamut that they'll never forget it and shot her in particular was occupied as you know decades prior to World War two there's a history there of animosity that difficult to overcome exacerbated by things alike the refusal of Japan to apologize deeply enough for the comfort women abducted Korean women who were put bit central into prostitution the Japanese army the follow on problem is where his US leadership on this issue both the Japanese and the south Koreans think trump is a walking away from the French government is walking away from the economic tree that we were going to have or we would have tremendous financial relationship for the Pacific region we actually have to care about this issue when these two allies have lost trust in each other what does that exactly mean to our national security because if you have Japan and South Korea don't they have the the ability to be the watchdog over missile launches by North Korea and now the president today is tweeting about north Korea's recent testing of short range missile sort of downplaying that almost a drop of course right to be blunt I think is in a fantasy land term thing with north Korean issue North Korea continues to develop weapons grade fissile material they continue to cast you in band ballistic missile system they are working on a prototype for an ICBM they can hit the United States and they just unveiled the beginnings of an operational submarine launched ballistic missile program so they're actually a tremendous threat to the United States and our allies both South Korea and Japan to this economic argument doesn't make any sense for either of these two important allies and surely not the United States U.
