"They had not all right. Diane Gallagher reporting from Georgia. Thank you so much. We should note the governor camp inexplicably said today that he did not know until the last twenty four hours that sometimes some of the people carrying the virus were as symptomatic. That of course has been common knowledge publicly discussed by many individuals including Dr Fallacy. Literally for months now if you go south and west of Georgia you'll hit Louisiana which is reporting a major spike in corona virus cases with with more than twenty seven hundred new cases today alone. Louisiana now has the second highest death rate in the country from Corona virus per capita. Just behind New York state. Joining me now is Dr Robert Heart Doctor. Heart is the executive vice president and chief medical officer of Auch Nur health the largest health system in Louisiana Dr Heart. Thanks for joining us. The State reported two thousand seven hundred twenty six new cases new cases and just one day. How bad is it on the ground in Louisiana? How much worse do you expect it to get before it gets better jake? We are certainly seeing more and more cases The the big jump that we saw today was Do some water the backlog of the testing that that we've talked about free and we were able to get a lot of those tests and so give us a somewhat of surprising spy but one that we partially anticipated at some point but it is Is a severe test for all the health systems and all the people and I have to tell you that. Lay people have up and responded to this It's really been incredible to say but we know it is going to get worse. Wall seem the numbers. We stay at home order in place about ten days ago so we know that that takes about two weeks to see and so we are hoping that we will see that. Have a nice effect on the number of cases but currently our hospitals continue to expand as we continue to take in these cases Dr New Orleans officials tell C. N. N. That one of the reasons they hypothesize one of the reasons that it might be hitting so hard and your status because the population just demographically has a higher rate of underlying health. Conditions do agree. Does that affect your planning for what could be an influx of patients? Yes it certainly does affect our planning here in Louisiana that We do have some of the highest incidence of hypertension underlying kidney disease. Heart Disease Lung Disease. All of those go into the so. We've had to really look hard at how we begin to set up more intensive care beds constantly moving taking some of our beds that used to be medical and surgical beds and converting those to intensive care beds. Because we know going to require more intensive than perhaps other populations without the underlying disease Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said that in the last week the number of corona virus patients in hospitals have doubled in Louisiana and the number of patients on ventilators have doubled and he warned that the state could run out of ventilators. As soon as next week is that true. Is that dire? How soon could you be facing a moment where you actually have such a surge in patients? You can't handle them all right. So that's that's always in the back of our minds and that's continues to drive our efforts to contain ventilators in we know that our ventilator usage is up over one hundred percent from what would be considered normal prior to the corona virus are. Icu's we've grown by probably seventy percent now and we anticipate Negro that has ICU beds by another thirty percent to take in all the patients. We do have shipments coming in all laters but it is a concern to know that at some point we may not have those options of the good news is we have different types of later. That we can use Based on the severity of the patient so Tom Sometimes we have to use a step down ventilator for a patient who may be continuing to improve and get better so we can use the more intensive care ventilators on those of our sickest patients. Dr Robert Hart thank you so much. God bless you and all the medical workers there in Louisiana. Hope Hope you get and have everything you need thank you. They're all working very hard free shedding. I know I know they are. We WanNa take a moment to remember just a few of the literally thousands of people in the United States who have lost their lives to this terrible virus. We'll start with Ben Lewd or. He was a healthy thirty year old teacher and baseball coach from New Jersey. His wife who is also currently battling CORONA VIRUS SAYS. This is how she wants him to be remembered every single person whether he knew you for five minutes or he knew you for you know his whole entire lifetime he would give you the same respect and try to reach out and help you and make you laugh in any way possible. You know that was just the type of selfless person that he was always worrying about everybody else before himself. Conrad Buchanan was a healthy thirty nine year old. Dj His wife and daughter fought to get him tested for days. They were denied his wife. Nicole says by the time he was finally admitted to the hospital in Florida. He was immediately into baited and then she never got to see him again. May Their memories be a blessing. Our hearts go out to their families and friends today coming up a look across the globe.

Take a look back at some of the most hard-fought presidential races throughout history the CNN original series race for the White House is back for a brand new season Sundays. Nine on CNN. We have some breaking news for you. Now the commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt is expected to be relieved from duty. A defense official tells CNN the commander Captain Brett Crozier warned in a memo to navy leadership that more action was needed for the corona virus outbreak. On his ship. The commander is being removed. We're told because it is suspected that he is the one who leaked that memo. When he was pleading for help to save the lives of his sailors the Navy aircraft-carrier had almost one hundred infected sailors on board. About thousand sailors have been evacuated from the ship and moved shore to Guam where the ship is currently in port. The navy will no doubt face questions about why it is punishing somebody who was trying to save the lives of his sailors in our in our world lead a horrific scene out of Ecuador bodies being left on the street because morgues are to capacity in the UK. One town anticipating a similar situation. That town is turning an ice rink into what they hope will not be but could be used as a makeshift morgue.

The World Health Organization has consistently praised China's handling the rapidly finding these cases rapidly containing them using the principles that China employed president. Donald Trump also applauding the Chinese efforts. Just a few weeks ago. I know this president. She loves the people of China a loves his country and he's doing a very good job with a very very tough situation but as numbers in the US continue to rise. So does the skepticism over. Just how reliable. China's numbers are and how transparent it's been with its data reality is that We could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming video shows. Wuhan's green residents collecting the remains of their loved ones. Thyssen a leading Chinese business. Publication claimed there were thousands more earns delivered than the official Coronas death toll but worth pointing out two days. After the lockdown Wuhan officials halted all funeral services in the city of eleven plus million so it is plausible. The earns are also used for those who died from something other than krona virus but CNN's early reporting inside Wuhan back in January suggested. The numbers were not adding up when compared with the stories from the front lines in part because of something that now many countries are challenged with a shortage of tests Strelitz of the call. And it's really emotional for me. Dura Jong told us. It took four days for her to get tested. The results also delayed. I don't think it's because they really lots of control numbers but I think it's more out the capacity Kyle Que- dollas by phone. His mother died in mid-january in Wuhan. She never had a nucleic acid test. He told US her. Cause of death was officially listed as severe pneumonia but during her treatment the doctor said it was very likely that she had corona virus and yet she was not a confirmed case and hence could not be counted. China's says they I detected the virus on December twelfth at this Wuhan Seafood Market but they did not shut it down until January first and during that three week period that people of Wuhan continued.

"USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier on which nearly a hundred sailors have tested positive for the corona virus joining us live with the latest developments as CBS military consultant Mike Lyons good morning might actually having me so the navy changes some policy overnight to allow the sailors to get off the ship in Guam they did it they they expect acquiesced really to what the captain it said I'm glad they did I think that the captain has got to make the decision on the ground as to how the sailors feel as to what the situation is so they started to take certain sellers off they have about a hundred that have tested positive that number likely will spike but they want to keep the minimum crew on to make sure that the ship continues to man I don't think the navy did a good job of projecting what the situation would be like I think other ships are gonna have a similar problem and I think the policy is good and they'll now start to heal some of those fellows it came off the ship mica how many crew members are normally on that ship about four thousand but the thing is there's no social distancing that takes place enough on that ship in terms of their close quarters with a sleep where they worked and the like and the entire systems are contained the water the air filtering rationing and and the like and so it's you know something this contagious would go through that ship very very quickly and again the captain makes a decision it and and saying look look I'm not willing to risk the two percent that possibly will be killed because of this which is not worth it which is why I decided to write the letter he did to take the sailors off the ship what is the Pentagon doing to help are they sending supplies well it is there in the Far East right now I think that in most cases the fleet will take care of them from resupply perspective I'm I'm just gonna watch closely to make sure that that this captain doesn't get punished for this I think that it took a tremendous amount of moral courage to stand up and say look this is just not the way to go I can and then maybe did not put out very good operational guidance that we have the strategic platitude of you know we're gonna continue to fight and win the nation's wars but that doesn't cut it I think down the execution phase where I think that the ship captain made a very very tough decision took a lot of moral courage and I think a lot of parents of those sailors are really happy that he did it Mike thank you so much appreciate the time as always as CBS military consultant my clients with us here on K.

In the meantime hot can expect to be busy as consumers including me keep ordering stuff online for the world. I'm Kelly Casula us in Seoul for more than a dozen years. The US has carried out hundreds of air strikes in Somalia. The target the militant group al-shabaab. There was one incident in an airstrike two years ago where the. Us admitted to killing civilians so called collateral damage but Amnesty International now says it has evidence of two more airstrikes this year. Also killed civilians. Daphne Eviatar is Amnesty International's director of security with human rights. So those two other airstrikes happened. Back in February Daphne. According to your research what happened was a target and how many civilians were caught up in it so first of all. It's hard to know who the target was. Because africom won't say who the target was but we can tell you who was killed on. February second the family of five or having dinner in the city of Khalib in Somalia's Middle Juba region and a warhead struck their home and then eighteen year old woman. Omar Abu car was killed instantly vic strike also injured two of her younger sisters and their grandmother. Now we don't know who the target of that was the second strike that we documented was February. Twenty four th and that held a fifty three year old man who is a banana farmer and an office manager for the local telecom company. He had a wife and eight children. What's odd in that case in particular is that he had worked previously for international humanitarian organizations in the region and he'd been arrested several times by al-shabaab which makes it really unlikely that he was actually a member of al-shabaab. So the problem is that they don't identify who the targets are except for al-shabaab or affiliates. Shebab and then they declare everyone who has been killed as having been a member of Al Shabaab and so our researchers have gone in and interviewed people on the ground and found out who was the person killed and sometimes it is the member al-shabaab sometimes it wasn't we've investigated eight strikes over the last couple of years and found twenty. One civilians killed the. Us government has only acknowledged two of them. So have you. Amnesty International presented those findings to the Pentagon. What's been the reaction? Yes repeatedly so this is I think the third we're presenting them. Evidence of very specific civilians were killed by. Us strikes the reaction is generally will investigate. And get back to you and then when they have gotten back to us. It's basically a blanket responsive. We've determined that those were members of all Shebab those religions admit killings. But there's no evidence presented to back that up and there's no response to the fact that we have done all these interviews that just gets dismissed. Is there any way for families in Somalia to get reparations or even just an acknowledgement from the US military? That someone was killed. Well there could be but there hasn't been so that's another real concern. We have even in the one case and the one strike which resulted in two civilian casualties that the US government has admitted to. They have not even contacted the family. They have not provided any sort of reparations AFRICOM the US Africa Command has pledged to begin publicly reporting civilian casualties from The military operations in Somalia and elsewhere in Africa by the end of this month. What is your reaction to this? Is it enough? It's a good start other. Us military commands do report. This and so it's good. That AFRICOM will start reporting but the real problem is what are they going to report if they're doing shoddy investigations or investigation that rely purely on secret intelligence sources. That haven't been verified. The most reports won't be very helpful. What they really need to do is meaningful investigations the. Us government isn't going to know the impact of its actions there if it doesn't even know who it's actually killing and what role they played in the community.

A young woman who was the first reported corona virus case in Kenya says she's recovered by Kenya's official statistics. Fewer than one hundred people have contracted the disease. They're only one person has died. Still countries across Africa are taking drastic action to prevent the spread of cove in nineteen. The World Health Organization is calling countries to protect the poorest communities. But in a place like Kenya some worry that government policies are causing more harm than the pandemic itself. The world's Halima condie reports on a typical day residents in the Nairobi neighbourhood of Kariobangi. Wake up before dawn. It's a low income area meaning. Most homes don't have running water and families often share a single room after getting their children. Ready for school board crowded buses to go to work and other parts of the city. But these days many people don't have jobs to go to being laid off some going for without pay sum deducted deducted pay says Stefanos Hanno. He's a human rights defender at the Kariobangi Social Justice Center. He's been going door to door to educate his community about how to protect themselves from Corona virus but Odierno says their biggest concern is about losing their jobs and putting food on the table. Most people in the neighborhood are casual day. Laborers like food vendors or security guards. These are the people being hurt. I in the corona virus outbreak so far the government has imposed a countrywide curfew. And unfortunately for those who still have jobs. There's an order for public vehicles called Matatu touts to operate at sixty percent capacity will be the prices of the fair example going from Connecticut. Oh Bondage town being double craze see.

He's noticed fewer people are having large gatherings and that more shops are putting out soap and water for people to wash their hands but in Kariobangi easy access to water as a privilege. Not everyone can afford in fact. The local government already rations water and poor areas commander who Tuesday. There's a lot but from Wednesday to Sunday. He's very close.

"It. People and there is no sanitation. There's no soap and there is no water so when I was speaking to them about social tensing it felt like an obscene statement to make when there is so much poverty and people do not have even their basic meals. In fact I met this migrant laborer. Who worked in a little factory? His daily worker and there are eight people in the family and it's been two days since he hasn't gone to work and he does not know what the next day works for him. His wife is on dialysis and he cannot decode hospital because the hospitals are preoccupied occupied with them go with foster to patients. So I mean it's it's it's really miserable sight to witness because these up people unlike the privileged like the middle class of the country. Who have stopped did refrigerators. With Fudan and sanitizers. These people do not know where their next meal is going to come from and some of the neighbors that I met divet crying and they were choking and they said all we want to do is just to go back to our respective hometowns and if anybody can just you know. Put us in a train or a bus. We just want to see our families. Let's hear that Clip Gothic Margaret Bust. I think just the sound of his voice captures the dilemma. He finds himself in what? What was he saying? It was a sobering moment because he said all he wants to do is just go back home. If the government can really help him go back home. He was stalling when I met him and simulcast would packets to give them and they said well. You have given us food packets right now. But what do we do about our next meal? It was? It was really traumatizing to witness data and this is not just you know despite locality at this point of time as I talked about thousands and thousands of laborers who are desperate to go back on because there is no work in the cities. The Prime Minister of the country has initiated these relief funds. But I don't know when. Will that really reach these people because as it stands right now the relief is not reaching them. The only leave that is reaching dam is from NGOs and Volunteers who are working on the ground. So these day laborers are hoping they can pull resources with families and villages So basically they can eat but the families and villages are also under the lockdown so realistically if these workers in the cities make it to the villages. What can they actually expect? Honestly when I spoke to Dan district they just wanted to be with their families. If the DI- did not want to be alone because right now grants they are to this no shortens that. They're going to get their next meal the next day and they're locked down. There are ten labours lockdown in one room. I mean it really seems like a brutal way to treat the poor and vulnerable. What kind of pushback is the government getting? All channels are news. Media's visuals of these farmers and laborers who have been working so of course the countries angry but you know this. Entire incident sheds light on the clear divide between the rich and the poor. The rich and the elite in this country read a week ago standing in their balconies and clapping and cheering for health workers. Which is a great thing. So there's a clear clear. Structural divide between the rich and the poor and the rich and the middle class has been dead but the floor is on the streets and they're crying and they're sticking accountability.

Look for the helpers as Mr Rogers used to say getting through this corona virus pandemic is going to take lots of different helpers. Nurses doctors teachers parents ad delivery workers to the list especially in South Korea. Kelly Casula is based in Seoul and place. The local sometimes referred to as delivery nation. I moved to South Korea a few years ago from the US and one thing that's been really easy to get used to is the convenience. Here's what I'm talking about. I was laying in bed a few nights ago when I realized I forgot to buy a special kind of battery for my camera. I panicked a little because I needed it the next morning for work. But then I remembered South Koreans call their country pay down a Nada or delivery nation. For reason I ordered the battery online that same night. The website promised to it gets me time and sure enough. The next morning at seven am so I just got a text message saying that my packages arrived to my door. So I'm about to go grab them. But here's the real kicker. The battery cost me around ten dollars and delivery was three. I feel like a kid opening Christmas presents right now. I slept the battery in my backpack and head out for the day. So it's early morning here and I'm just leaving my apartment to go to work and of course there's one of these delivery trucks in front of my house. The delivery guy must be running upstairs and giving people their packages as I walked to my bus up to other delivery services. Pass me along the way south. Koreans jokingly call themselves deliverymen Joel Min joke means a group of people sort of like an ethnicity or a race but during the krona virus outbreak. The National Obsession with delivery has kicked into overdrive. Udaya Jen twenty five year. Old University student tells me that she does most of her shopping online but nowadays she says y'all go botany because of Corona. I've heard so many more people are getting things online and having them delivered but convenience also comes with a dark side earlier this month. A delivery man working for a big online retailer here died at work. Another delivery guy found his body at two. Am lying in the stairwells. An apartment building with no elevator news media only identified the man as Mr Kim. The incident got a lot of attention. Home is the head of the Labor Union for Delivery Workers Haas as the official reason for Kim's death was listed as heart failure. But that's not what he thinks really killed him. They've done coup all hanging on to. Kim died from being overworked from pressure. That comes with the job. Korean delivery workers are tracked by a GPS SYSTEM. And they're rewarded for speed. That's how management. I noticed something was wrong with the worker who died of hunger. Could it'll pick it. Do you get home in their house. Says he wants employers to stop promising. Don deliveries altogether and the ease up on the pace a year ago. He says he was delivering to about eighty homes per day. Now it's as high as one hundred eighty now. I can't help but to feel guilty every time I open a package but then again south. Koreans aren't the only ones addicted to home deliveries Andrew. Kim is a sociologist at Korea University. All horrible things online. You know like the state is Amazon. Kim tells me in the South Koreans have gone all in quick home deliveries.

"The winter than in the summer. So for instance. Flu has very strong seasonal forcing go much more likely that flu transmission occurring in the winter than you are in the summer months so this study has been interpreted as suggesting that that could be seasonals. Covet however I think that we still need to get more days today. Hot and humid countries seem to have and I should say seem to have had fewer cases of covered nineteen Would you agree with that? And if you do wise at the situation I think we have to consider a number of other factors. That could explain that. For instance one of the introductions sample sample is not only a Hong Eun country place which has excellent public health excellent content tracing and some very will class at Zang's true of Hong Kong. If you look to other places around that region like Indonesia Indonesia was famously darned starting testing and so they may have been a lot of community spread that we just haven't detected but we are seeing with. Kobe is when it enters the community in some places cakes off the jump breaks quite quickly wake in Iran in others. It doesn't that doesn't mean that it's going to happen right now. For instance we can see that. That's probably very good evidence so coded transmission taking place in Florida. So where do you find the strong evidence that Corona virus does behave like the flu virus in that it is seasonal and could lead up over summer months in North America and Europe? So the study talking about it in the moment is probably the strongest evidence that is. I say has another confounding issues to deal with the Isis. Saying transmission is not happening. It could be. The transmission was just not observed. My colleague mercy. Santana has done a study which was looking at the initial epidemic in different parts of China because China's quite China has a number of different climactic conditions different positive so up north. It's kind of coal and Norgren Humid where South Walnut Creek Humid. So if you were able to see seasonable for senior expect to be more transmission happening unless happening down south but when he looked at the early stages of the epidemic he found such a fact have any previous viruses like SARS or merged shown a seasonal pattern or behaved any differently and warm and humid climates. The issue was saws off. That is often misunderstood. Is that people say that way because of the wall and human violence and the change in seasons but actually what happened results was the majority of transmission happened. Africa symptoms so social distancing. People who you know have called for Just staying home had an outsize effect on transmission that does not get a case with code coded increasing evidence. Kobe transmits a full symptoms become apparent and has resulted. That is much much control now when the flu goes away in the summer. It's not just as a seasonal fall saying it's not just because it finds it. Harder to transmit seasonal flu has been done around will with a building community in the community which means tries to transplant. It's more likely to find that resonates transmitting to is immune. So the downtown scene. Flu is due to seasonal plus immunity is. Kobe is a new virus. There is no immunity. I'm wondering professor manage if you feel a little bit uncomfortable. Even drawing the comparison to the flu given that this parallels have largely been dismissed at this point I actually rocker. We've lost people saying this is flew flew. Snood not new. It's it's wrong rolling comparison. It's wrong to say Ho flu. Kills only so many people year and this is killed. Fuelling acts the same key missing. Is that whenever you say that? Have not being not many deaths. It's the so far at the end of that. Have Not Lodge outbreaks with these places yet? This is still very early stages and we're GONNA learn a lot more than a lot of it is gonNA learn considerable costs. What evidence would you need to conclude that the corona virus is affected by temperature and does follow that seasonal forcing dynamic? You were talking about. We would need evidence that would show that the rate of transmission uninterrupted by other things was slower in the summer. And it wasn't a windsor now. Of course it's going to be together because we are going to be seeing a whole lot of Alba countermeasures which can be put in place and rightly so in spreading now. I hope that that is going to drive three number down. But it's going to be very difficult to know whether or not asked countermeasures. Physical Distance Enroll doing the reason.

Johnson Sirleaf knows what it's like to face a deadly virus outbreak. She was president of Liberia during her nations battle with the Ebola virus. Nearly five thousand people died there between two thousand fourteen and twenty sixteen and infectious disease. Respect snowboarder in discriminates against no one. I argued that an uncontrolled containment will matter where in the world and no matter. How localize is a threat to all humanity as a Bolo was spreading across Liberia? And it's west. African neighbours Sirleaf made pleas for global unity to avert a pandemic. She wrote what she called a letter to the world and the world responded and they did so boldly we defeated together. Liberia was declared Ebola. Free in June of two thousand sixteen with the Corona virus spreading across the globe. Sirleaf is now making a similar play. We must act to slow down. Break the chain of transmission. It is clear that mistakes have been made in the initial response to the virus from Asia to Europe to the Americas. We made the same mistakes in twenty fourteen but we self correct and we did it all together. We are all in this together advice that helped Liberia during Bola and applicable to the whole world. Now that was former Liberian President Ellen. Johnson Sirleaf speaking with my colleagues at the BBC. You're listening to the world. I'm Marco Werman. You're with the world ninety three years. That's how long the man dubbed the Godfather of natural history has been on this earth. I'm talking about broadcaster. Sir David Attenborough. What I WANNA do is going to look at Odds Fox and pangolins and sloths and humming birds. What an assignment. What if I'm tastic through an didn't matter how badly you did it and we we but but people who said ooh Look Hummingbird ooh look? That's Bangla. That's attenborough on the podcast. The Economist asks a podcast in Partnership With Economist magazine and MC L. Voice a host for this week's episode. She sat down with Sir David Attenborough. So attenborough's ninety three. He's still going strong. Even has a new film coming out a life on our planet that thirst for curiosity and for nature's wonder It seems is not waning. In his ninety s not at all he seems is keen as ever to get out into the world. He said if if I'm asked I go he's head as if he might just put his backpack on and leave the room at any minute and looking for pangolins. I think you get that sense. That hearing from him of wonder of the world he now combines that much more with warning about threat to the natural world and one thing. I've wondered was when he had changed from being someone Houston wandered the globe. Ren- back pictures and stories the extraordinary places and wonderful animals to someone who wanted to send a strong message and this is what he said back in the sixties when the first time I saw a bleach car reef and I realized that the richest environments richest ecosystem the world has ever seen somebody being wiped out and we were doing it. So in the podcast. You Press Sir David Attenborough. Some hard hitting issues specifically his own carbon footprint. I mean he's a man who has traveled all over the globe. What did he have to say about that? And whether he's changed any zone habits to lessen that footprint I often find it. It's a question that makes interviewees regal and I think it makes David attenborough a bit uncomfortable. He takes the view that he travels on long voyages. They are actually pretty efficient in terms of the number of people that he takes with him. He says he doesn't travel unnecessarily but he did say he still sees it as part of the job that he does. It's integral to it. Orders to sitting here are breathing carbon dioxide. We're all contributing to in some way or another to the problem and it is impossible other line down and dying for us to cease doing so what we have to think about is the common dogs that I am producing simply talking to you and sitting here is not being misspent and I hope it. Isn't you fly. Let's yes I suppose I do but I don't fly anyway for fun. I fly as part of my job. Okay that's an interesting distinction. That's a good one As so an David attenborough ninety-three seen a lot and is now in the twilight of his life. How optimistic izzy. About the current environmental movement. He really came to life. I thought on this issue. He sometimes gets bored. Benching an elderly poster child for the Environmental Movement. He said it was visited him. But when we came to talking about Gratitude Burke. I thought he really had an interesting take on her and particularly why he thought that she'd made an impact. But I think it's absolutely astonishing what she's done and she's caused the most mighty potentates in the world to take breath and suddenly think about things. How is the attenborough family appreciated in the UK and have some of David attenborough zone kind of attitude. Shifts got paralleled The the the country's shifts he's a national treasure. It's it's a phrase itself news debate in. Which he he says he doesn't like but I imagine most people would rather be a national treasure national treasure. He's he's not really politically as active as much as someone who really wants to bring you the way that he sees the world into your living room and he believes that wonder is the first step of a broader awakening. He thinks that comes before the activism. Some people see it the other way round would be critical of him from that corner. But that's absolutely what he stands for why he continues to do what he does. Nine decades on and Macelroy podcasts. The economists asks thank you very much. Thank you very much okay. Bringing wonder into your living room. I like that especially right now. Turns out a lot of people do citizen. Science projects have gotten a boost in interest during the corona virus.

At the moment fill up they can help out in some way and there were the situation that the world is currently in and this is a great way of doing it getting that historic rainfall data off of scanned. Handwritten notes will allow research the plug them into climate change models. Hawkins says climate issues have taken a back seat to the corona virus crisis but he hopes participating in projects like his can help people who are locked down to their sofas feel connected to the things they care about and each other.

"Doing it in a very methodical way. Because it's not the same as a cruise ship that ship has Armaments on an aircraft on it we have to be with fires at their fires on on more the ship. We have to run a nuclear power plants or there are a lot of things that we have to do on that ship and make it a little bit different and unique but we're managing it and we're working through and we're taking all the input and we appreciate all the Info from the CEO the chef medical command on that ship. And we're going to work on those those issues immediately. For residents of the island of Guam Population. About one hundred. Seventy thousand allowing sales to disembark is a big concern in the headlines. The Pacific News Center a major developing situation this morning after the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt pled with Navy leaders to radio station K. G. UM in Guam's capital had gotten Guam's governor. Liu Leon Guerrero announced today that she is working on a plan to quarantine sailors in local hotels. Lola Leon Guerrero is on Guam. She's an activist with the group Independent. Guan which is concerned about the governor's decision Guam is already trying to contain the rapid spread of covert. That's happening on a very tiny island with just a little over one hundred sixty thousand people we already have seventy seven cases on Guam and so bringing in a carrier with five thousand people who have been in such close quarters with each other And Cova rapidly spreading there that the Annan needs to be able to focus on the community here to the governor of Guam. Promise the navy anything. Well the governor of Guam. After the captain of the carrier wrote a letter about how serious the issue was The governor and the admiral started making decisions to house those who are testing negative in local hotels and they have said that they're going to ensure that a local hotel workers don't interact with the people coming off the carrier that they're working on How that's what that's GonNa look like. Do you know if any sailors have disembarked yet. No so the house of what this is GonNa look like a haven't really been made available to the community. A lot of the numbers have not been officially made available to the community in terms of how many people have already tested positive on the carrier. This information is vital. I believe to our community and it's a big difference from they will stay on the carrier or on peace to now we will be housing them in the hotels. How a dilemma is is for the residents of Guam because Captain Brett Crozier. The commander of the Roosevelt is pleading for help. I mean he's saying. Us troops are in a life and death situation. How are people talking about that? You know what the groups have been saying. Is that if we know. For a fact that it's spreading rapidly on the ship and then you remove them from the ship and you bring them into the local community even one new case in the local community because of how small and interconnected this community is could lead to many many more cases and that is problematic Nobody said that we want to turn away the sailors from from health. Care that they need you. Know there are People Guam. Who served in the navy and our on this carrier and we by no means want them to be mistreated or put their lives at risk. No what we're saying is the navy has the resources to handle this within their base. We should also point out that. Many residents of Guam our veterans or active duty Navy. Some are actually aboard the Roosevelt. Right now so how do those ties between Guam and the US military complicate the situation for people on the island we constantly because of you know our relationship with the United States and with the military particularly the people of Guam? Truly not being able to say you know what we need to focus on how we're going to handle the increasing number of cases that we have and there isn't enough information for us to really know what we're expecting here There hasn't been transparency. On behalf of the Military Victoria. Lola Leon. Guerrero is an activist with the group independent Kuun. She's been speaking with us from Guam Victoria.
