9:03 am
human more than 5 people for more than 60 years, and you intensify them in the midst of a pandemic. and now you want to present yourself as the big savior, lift the blockade left and 243 measures and we will see how we get along. well, no, we're going to doubles us secretary of state antony blink and says the cuban regime have no one to blame but itself, it would show that they simply are not hearing the voices and will of the cuban people. people deeply, deeply, deeply tired of the repression that has gone on for far too long. and president joe biden express taller diety, with the protest of the united states, stands firmly with the people, or q as they assert their rights. and because the government from cuba to refrain from violence or attempt to silence the voice of the people campbell
9:04 am
clients for time to the streets of havana on monday. but the force not for security forces patrolled the capital in large numbers. mobile internet outages were frequent throughout the day and access to many social media sites was blocked . and does key was president, have any ground for accusing the u. s. of a hand in these protests. we put that to william the ground professor of government, an expert and latin american politics based at american university in washington, dc. well, i'm sure he points to the fact that the united states has been spending about $20000000.00 a year in support of opposition elements inside cuba. but the reality is that these demonstrations were too large and 2 broad in scope across the island to be strictly the result of any effort by the united states to foment opposition. people are just,
9:05 am
you can amicably desperate and frustrated right now because there's no food in the stores. there's no medicine in the pharmacies. there is no fuel to gas stations. and there are now rolling electric blackouts in the middle of summer. and so people are just angry and the result is this kind of social explosion for us embargo plays an important role. donald trump black remittances from cuban americans going to their families in cuba. and that was about $3500000000.00 a year in hard currency flow and foreign exchange currency that cuba no longer has . and that effected the standard of living of about 60 percent of cuban families. and it meant the government had a lot less foreign exchange currency to be able to import food and medicine. so i think we'll have to wait and see whether this is the 1st of a kind of a cycle of protests as we've seen in a number of other countries,
9:06 am
or whether this was just one single days worth of social explosion. but either way, the underlying social tensions and grievances that people have are not going to go away. and so they'll manifest themselves in one way or another. and that was american university professor william leo gram speaking with us about the situation in cuba. sure. some other news, at least 50 people have died in a fire that ripped through a hospital ward, treating corona virus, patients and southern iraq. many others are in critical condition. protesters gathered in front of the hospital and mayor's office. it is the 2nd hospital fire in iraq. this year dozens of texas democrats have fled the state of war, the approval of the bill. they say makes it harder for minorities to vote. the texas house of representatives no longer has enough lawmakers to conduct business. the governor has threatened them with aggressive on their return session after special session hotel collapse and eastern china has killed at least 8 people.
9:07 am

9:08 am
that have especially affected small businesses. these for rent signs tell the story in terms of the economic impact of the cove at 900 pandemic, no neighborhood in sole, has been quite so stricken as a one. this one's bustling, multicultural, entertainment and shopping district suffered a cluster outbreak in may of 2020, infecting about 250 people and causing a significant drop in visitors and business. young young man opened a cafe, offering a variety of drinks in her own blend of coffee beans. just as the pandemic arrived in early 2020, soon, her business would really feel it. all you got? my cafe is close to one. so last year outbreak there affected our sales as well. we hardly, so any customers you feel it was like a ghost town here. when a younger part, that's all since monday gatherings have more than 2 people other than family are

9:13 am
agree that contributed to the record spread of the data variance yet the 2nd reason is big party. some weeks ago the feeling was saying that the panoramic a basically over and the threat and with the spirit of the upcoming summer season. so lots of young people went on with it for dis, no huge ends of the party. and they turns out into huge super reading events. in one case on the island of my york out 600 students got infected in one evening. we just heard john phillip, that france and greece, you know, in response to, to rise in case numbers there that they are now making the job mandatory for some groups. how about in spain is something similar being considered well, some spanish regions that have
9:14 am
a lot of political autonomy talked about such ideas in the past, but they hadn't been a big discussion on the national political level yet. i think this has to do a lot with effect that the general willingness to get vaccinated. it's very high. your spend, sir, it's so at it among the higher and all of europe, almost half of the entire spanish population is already fully vaccinated. and among the most vulnerable groups, including doctors and nurses, the rate is about 90 percent. in many cases, i think this has a lot to do with effect, that especially have to be getting off the fund that make spend what extremely affected by the virus we saw pictures of overwhelmed us. and this has had a long lasting psychological effect on the venue. young phillip sholtes,
9:15 am
bringing us up to date with the view from seville. thanks so much. thank you. all the horrors witnessed by health workers during the peak of spain's corona virus crisis have left deep mental scars. many are now in therapy, while others have left their jobs completely. we spoke with some of those living with the traumatic aftermath. the atmosphere at the corona warrant often died. hospital and madrid seems almost relaxed right now. many birds are empty at the moment. for internet clara, in this blanket the days have again become a bit more bearable. she and her colleague slipped through the worst of the pandemic. it just left them deeply traumatized. nancy me out into a big hole. i cried in the corner. i couldn't take hearing anything more about covert victims because in the end they were also my victims in the way the last
