a lot of the people who weren't taking the hospital were taken to nearby school because of course they need, they need shelter, they need a roof over their head. it's raining, as you can see, it's cold winter it's, it's freezing, temperature here. so that is what the parties are focusing on right now. they're trying to provide whatever help is possible and whatever help these people need who have lost their home so tragically, in the fire today. jared, best in just briefly, do we know why the death toll was as high as it is? well, so apparently the fire and the smoke must have spread very quickly for the building . because apparently, because the thought was left open, a fire apparently was cause that's what we're hearing now by a space heater in these winter temperatures. and so the people who died apparently no one burned, that's what we heard. but the people who did die died from inhaling that toxic smoke that must have spread very quickly throughout the entire building. jared, okay, douglas, bessie and heartache. they're in the bronx at the scene of

but because of so many people trying to log on, i guess there is such a huge interest in, in this case max, why are we even here in this situation? couldn't this had been handled in another way before documents even even arrived in australia? yeah, well that's the 1000000 dollar question. i suppose. you know, that's what his lawyers would argue and end date. what a lot of critics have said in some ways some, some people are claiming that, you know, this is potentially a political decision. there was a lot of community sort of outrage the fact that he might be allowed to come without being vaccinated as the requirement under australia, fairly strict quarantine arrangements. so it's a good question and i think that's what this, you know, these are saying is, is looking to find out. and of course, as you've been saying, this is not just about sport. there's been a really big political fall out to what,
what's happened exactly on that front? yeah, absolutely. there's a few things going on in dade service. come out and support a doctor because of course, one of their most famous nationals. you have an australian election coming up this year. so again, critics of the government claim that this is, you know, more of a political decision than it is one of sort of, you know, procedure because of course there has been a huge backlash in this trailing community. and thirdly, it's also brought attention to the fact that i'm talking to explain held in a hotel, which is also been detaining around 30, as i'm saying, is in refugees. we've all kind of been brought in for medical treatment from australia, offshore detention centers in madison. now, ruth, is this, you know, protest is in favor of joking and refugees that have been outside the dies. it certainly brought out a lot of international and domestic political issues. it's not just about tennis.
