This is the Global News Podcast from the BBC World Service. I'm Alex Ritson in the early hours of Thursday, the twenty third of July. These are our main stories.
President Trump is sending hundreds of federal law enforcement officers to fight what he calls rising violent crime in American cities. President Trump says he's sending federal law enforcement officers to Chicago and other U.S. cities to fight what he says is violent crime that is spiraling out of control.

And at the same time, their immune systems don't go into overdrive when viruses are present. And that is actually one of the problems for humans when we're fighting viruses. Some of the most severe effects are not the viruses themselves but the way that our bodies react to them. So our bodies sort of go into overdrive and that can cause lots of problems.
