US wildfires burn millions of acres

We speak to a couple in California whose farm has been destroyed

The wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington state have destroyed thousands of homes and other properties and burned millions of acres of land. President Trump has said the fires were the result of poor forest management, not climate change. We hear from one couple in California who lost their farm.

The UAE and Bahrain are signing their historic peace deals with Israel today. We explain the significance and hear voices from the region to get a sense of the conversations taking place.

Our medical expert today answering listeners’ questions about Covid-19 is Dr Isaac Bogoch from Toronto.
