from across the u.s. is worst affected states are continuing to blame the federal government for a lack of testing results as a mom and other things early on sunday new york's governor andrew cuomo spoke about how difficult it's been for his state to cope with the situation it's been disorienting everybody is suffering on a lot of levels people are afraid people are anxious their own distress everywhere they turn normally you go home for solace you go home for peace. but it's even difficult at home in this period with so many questions so large a lot of pain a lot of suffering. but also when things are at their worst sometimes people are at their best and those same sentiments were echoed by new york city's mayor bill de blasio we pleaded for weeks and weeks for the federal government
2:07 am
provide testing up front in the kind of quantity that could have helped us contain this crisis and change the whole course of that we never got that help we continue to plead for more testing still has not come any in anywhere near the numbers that we need but we will not stop we're continuing the conversations with the white house would seem demanding the testing we're the epicenter of this crisis we must have the testing to help us move towards that next phase where we get out of widespread transmission across a virus and move to a low level transmission on to something better well john hendren joins me now live from chicago john new york state is still the worst hit and the head boxing continues with the federal government as we heard there but also between those 2 leaders who were at the station and the sea levels. that's right for weeks now the mayor of new york city and the governor of new york state of been playing a kind of good come bad cop with president donald trump with mayor bill de blasio
2:08 am
being confrontational and critical and governor andrew cuomo being essentially cooperative and saying nice things about the president but now they seem to be going on the same page you've got to blasio especially criticizing the lack of tests saying it's hard to send people back to work when we can't test them and tell who has been sick and who is vulnerable and then you've got the governor of new york state saying that need the money has been misallocated from the federal government that states like new york which have been especially hard hit should get more of the money that's been spent he and other governors are asking for another $500000000000.00 to be sent to the states and you know new york has been the worst hit its 7 founds in deaths of the 21000 in the united states so one in 3 has been in new york state they've had 10303000 confirmed cases of the 530000 cases in the united states that have been confirmed this after all is
2:09 am
easter sunday the 1st date that president trump it said is a gold when everybody should be going back to business he said that was an aspirational goal after that because you can see here in chicago and elsewhere we're nowhere near that but the newest state is supposed to be earliest may 1st but there are a lot of experts who are skeptical about that john so these accusations continue to fly meanwhile the death toll continues to rise across the country just give us the picture nation wise. that's right we've got about 530000 confirmed cases of corona virus here in the u.s. and because of that lack of testing that's probably a small fraction of the actual number but the u.s. is the country with the largest number of cases crossing that 500000 case barrier on friday then on saturday another grim milestone 20000 deaths that number
2:10 am
is now closer 221000 across the u.s. and its cities now in the midwest getting hit that 1st wave hit new york california washington state all on the coasts of the u.s. and now chicago and detroit are getting hit especially hard the state of michigan where detroit is has 24000 cases 15100 deaths in chicago in illinois you've got 21000 cases 720 deaths so you're getting a kind of 2nd wave and coronavirus really hasn't begun to permeate the rural parts of the country but that is what is coming next and that's one of the thing the new york governor was warning about he said that it would hit the suburbs ultimately will probably spread to the rural areas as well john hendren thank you the impact of the pandemic and international lockdowns have had severe impacts on the global economy reducing the need for oil with the life of the grinding to

decrease is perhaps not enough and when the outlines of this deal was announced on thursday after an initial spike prices actually fell on the news what we didn't find there is that this comes off the back of that of a trade war story of you know a price war mainly between russia and saudi arabia but when it came to these negotiations it was nick's a call that didn't want to step up and the usa actually stepped in to bridge that gap how much pressure was on the u.s. shale industry in order to trump to to make that concession well mexico held firm and refused to meet the demands that opec plus one and from them and the president promised to help in some way but never actually specified how that was going to happen and so it's really unclear that the u.s.
2:13 am
is actually performing more than what it's already stated which is market driven declines in production what about compliance might that be an issue going forward. absolutely and so all eyes now turn to compliance in the past the gulf monarchies saudi arabia kuwait and others have been reasonably strong on compliance but the big question here is about russia it has promised to commit to reduce its production and its record of doing so over the last few years is not as strong as what opec would like to see after this announcement about spain individually announced by several nations but that donald trump tweeted thanking and congratulating russia's vladimir putin and king solomon of saudi arabia does trump see himself as as really instrumental in getting this deal and unfolds he. president trump of course is going to claim credit for the deal but actually it's
2:14 am
really not clear that he was a major factor the major thing that he tried to do was to bring mexico to the table but mexico held firm and refused to be a part of it and so in fact this deal was largely done between saudi arabia and russia and president trump is doing what president trump does which is to try to claim credit for thank you for your time to call them they're a professor of political science at brown university. still ahead here on al-jazeera catholic churches in the philippines live stream easter sunday best as lockdowns falls worship and stay at home. after spending stoned on trying to have a child for my husband or to not be able to pull together a voice was devastating people around the world struggle with being separated from their loved ones because of the pending.
