4:02 pm
late april but social distancing rules remain in place and japan is facing a resurgence in cases confirmed a record 472 corona virus infections on saturday and the capital's governor says a citywide state of emergency may have to be imposed it's a step that's already been taken in okinawa where an outbreak is suspected to originated at a u.s. military base there it gather is a viral a just an lecture at lancaster university in the u.k. he says although russia's vaccine is still shrouded in mystery it's likely to be similar to the war being developed by scientists at oxford university. russian vaccine it's been reported by a task news agency official news agency in russia is an advice based vaccine so that's a similar technology to the one that's been developed teter office with a university which is known as the child docs vaccine so a child stands for chimpanzee and in a virus or expert the basic principle is that chimpanzee advice doesn't produce any
4:03 pm
pathology in humans or you can be infected with that and have no symptoms at all and then that's genetically engineered so an attack protein from the virus that you want to me nice against is inserted into the chimpanzee identified as genome and then your immune system when it sees this recount and vaccine bias will produce lots of antibodies to the protein that you want to immunize against and in the case of covert 19 that. protein which is the protein on the surface of the of the covert 1000 virus in order to give the immune system a good chance to produce lots of antibodies against that and hopefully produce resistance and who is that see the vaccine so although we don't know anything about the details of the russian vaccine the fact that they've announced it is identified a species suggests to me at least that it's going to be a fairly similar technology to the oxford want to move probably work in the same way those have all the sudden the various protests happening in germany cain
4:04 pm
joins me now from the couple of dublin tony people actually that seems like quite a lot. well if you believe the police so then it's something around about $17000.00 the organizers would certainly contest that and say they believe many more people are here but it's worth putting into perspective what the organizers hoped would be the attendance here earlier in the week just gone they were talking about having half a 1000000 people on the streets that number was then starkly revised down over the last 48 hours or so with people suggesting perhaps 202-2000 people would be here certainly the city's political leaders were under the impression that would be the number as i say the police right now saying 17000 people are on the streets in the largest of the demonstrations but it's worth making the point that something in the order of about 83 different groupings of people have suggested them or that they've been the suggestion that 83 different groups over the course of today would be on
4:05 pm
the streets of berlin and it's not just people who are opposed to the safety measures brought in by the government here in germany to combat coronavirus there are others who are opposed to the demonstrations by the coronavirus protesters taking place so the police have about 1100 officers on the streets of berlin trying to keep these rival groups of demonstrators apart and there are many closures street closures in central berlin in coming to the studio and broadcasting from now i have to run the gauntlet as it were of closures and that sort of thing the demonstrators mostly are all peaceful they're mostly good humored but there are certain groups clusters of people who are wearing the sorts of rightwing paraphernalia associated with the extreme right in germany i must say it's a minority who are doing that but so far at least peaceful demonstrations and the
4:06 pm
police to working hard to keep them separate from each other of course those that are in attendance as you say have very strong positions that they're holding with regards to where they stand on coronavirus but what's the general reaction not just to these protests but the ongoing restrictions of coronavirus the general public across germany. people need to remember that one of the things that ministerial circles are really worried about not just here in berlin at a federal level but right across the country and all the states that make up this federal republic are really worried about the 2nd wave of corona which they're trying to stop ironically some of the protesters who have come to the center of early into the brandenburg gate to the one today in london one of the perhaps the most iconic street in berlin perhaps in germany to saying that they are the 2nd wave of coroner they are the people who are representing that unspoken majority who don't like these these measures about corona but the points is generally speaking
4:07 pm
most people have been understanding of the need to have these precautions social distancing and that sort of thing and one final thought also so many of the measures that were brought in at the start of the pandemic which were perceived as being really long gone generally speaking you don't have to wear masks in many places right now so when you see the people on the streets demonstrating against coronavirus precautions many people wonder what exactly are they demonstrating against indeed doublet cain in berlin thank you. but a break only germany's island of okinawa is being blamed on u.s. troops the but the force commander says there's no evidence of transmission to the local community the bottom line is that our procedures for u.s. forces are stringent they are effect and what we have seen a growth in cases in a couple of our bases have been managed they have been contained and there has been
4:08 pm
absolutely no connection there that has been proven to show that there has been any spread from the costers on the bases to the local community the local person is the president of the shingle news agency in tokyo he says there's been an explosion of cases. the rise in covert making cases across the country has been kind of steady for some weeks and it just hasn't and that trend upward trend has just continued on and on and now we're getting into more crisis levels in the case open now as specifically the there is concern that perhaps the reason why it's hitting that island particularly strongly is because u.s. forces particularly u.s. marines have been able to come in and out of japan without going through immigration controls and until very recently without any covert 900 tests under the status of forces agreement but this link is strongly suspected by both the local
4:09 pm
government and the residents and now they're going to have to go into a more sort of a soft lockdown stereo in that prefecture that's for the spike it's really been coming steadily so it isn't you know it isn't one thing it is sort of something which has been spiraling slowly out of control over weeks and weeks and one key thing to understand is that the national government has opposed any sort of lockdown or any sort of restrictions on people's movements to even promoted a national tourism campaign in the midst of the pandemic so what you have going on here is a lot of local governors including governor yuriko toy quite kate of tokyo who are essentially acting against the will of the national government which doesn't want any sort of restrictions at all the leader of a south korean church has been arrested accused of concealing and under reporting coronavirus cases prosecutors say that leak meant he had put the government's antivirus responds the 88 year old denies the accusations and says he cooperated
4:10 pm
with the health department well that a 3rd of south korea's infections have been linked to this church. greece has lifted its ban on cruise ships which will now be able to dock with some restrictions they'll be allowed to port in 6 major areas of prayers for roads and call food but only if all of the passengers on board have been tested negative for covert 19 the industry has been one of the worst hit by the pandemic most companies counseled months of trips and many won't restart until next year several of already declared bankruptcy governments including the u.s. and u.k. are still advising their citizens against cruise travel but some people are afloat in norway passengers of the rolled up in certain ships are being told to self isolate after 4 crew members were admitted to hospital with the virus douglas ward spent 17 years at sea and is the author of it's cruising on cruise ships 2020 he says the industry is well set up to introduce measures to make it safe the good
4:11 pm
thing about cruising is that they can change the destination for you every single day so you can visit 2 or 3 ports to 3 islands in a single cruise and you can visit for high destinations so i think actually cruising is good and there's so much pent up demand the danger i think at the moment is where. companies with large cruise ships. try to enter the orient of the market to quickly. but you know i think there's so much tomorrow especially for cruising next year and it looks like looking that greece doesn't have a big cruise industry at the moment it's been it's been waning over the last few years there are less companies now operating out there doing the thing is that the cruise industry has all the protocols in place and all the enhanced sanitation increased air conditioning and all the prescreening so it should be easy to trace.
4:12 pm
if anyone comes down with the virus. however just like any other place whether it's an ice skating rink or it's a golf course or if it's an environment where you have in detainment and tracing everybody it's a bit of a bit of a labor job but one of the long term effects of the pandemic will be limiting career prospects for young people they fear that opportunities will be damaged for years to come reports. a crisis that is on the brink of erupting from not down to rising unemployment young people all around the country are facing the worst prospects in decades the onslaught of the pandemic on the economy has turned the health crisis into a financial one with many wondering how long they will have to pay for time to put some don't into your head about what will i do often the best you know will i be able to get a job or stuff and then what can you do
4:13 pm
a body just do we tell you we have to do if as ahmed is in his twenty's and runs a community sports mentoring service in leicester he was supposed to resume work when the city went into a 2nd lockdown unable to do so he fears for the future of his business and the younger people he helps fund to because a major issue because we can't fund activities that are going to do. generally be like stuff as well definitely have the deal people have be. affected by. the sea there is not many jobs at the moment people don't know what to do with. college and you need joy luck don you're not really letting it think your household is going to be accustomed to a fence where people really forgot to socialize when the acute lack of prospects is a ticking time bomb for whole generation of younger people 2 thirds of under 30 s are more likely to be laid unemployed than this scene is they also have fewer
4:14 pm
skills about disproportionately likely to be in insecure shops but even that kind of work which used to be readily available is now when doing. work in the greater con to me and in the services industry has been ravaged since locked down working hours were cut as well living standards for many in such a short space of time. those that invested in higher education are seeing opportunities drastically reduced on average there are 15000 graduate recruiting bacon sees a year in the u.k. this year and has gone down to just 3000 in the week leading up to june when you can pay your own year 80 percent fewer jobs are available to young people than were last year and so young people really are bearing the brunt of it and when we speak to them and we had a report that came out in may which was a young people in lockdown report it showed really high levels of anxiety amongst young people this is a predicament that shows little sign of improving any time soon the pandemic has
4:15 pm
exposed sharp inequalities and the lack of opportunities for young people is exacerbating them for generations locked down this will be the challenge of a lifetime sonny diagonal al-jazeera london. plenty more ahead here on the news hour including how a bankrupt lebanon is struggling to keep its children from going hungry. and a pack beach is ok but friends are a problem the british government is accused of mixed messages with new coronavirus clampdowns. the american basketball player who chose to stand apart from his teammates during the pre-game national anthem and even have that story coming up later. donald trump is going to use his presidential powers to bar the chinese own social media platform to talk from the u.s. he signaled he didn't support an american takeover of the company amid reports that
4:16 pm
microsoft is in talks to buy take talk and we see reports. it's still latest rift in the escalating tech war between the u.s. and china for weeks u.s. officials have raised security concerns over the chinese owned video tick-tock saying it can help beijing spot on americans and now president donald trump threatened to fan it all together well look here that we may be bending god we may be doing some other things of options but a lot of things are happening so we'll see what happens but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respect to. trump stepped up his rhetoric following reports that he may sign an order forcing chinese parent company might dance to sell the u.s. portion of take talk microsoft was set to be in talks to acquire it but neither side confirmed any deal in a blog post earlier this week took talks cheap kevin mayer says his company is not
4:17 pm
being treated fairly he says it's receiving more scrutiny because of its chinese origins and insists it is not the enemy talks estimated to have 800000000 active users worldwide a 10th of them in the u.s. experts say banning it would be challenging i think it's very unclear what it would look like and what it would mean you know it's very hard to ban something that's popular among the u.s just you know if your parents tell you not to do something it makes you want to do it more in june a video that went viral on ticked off was seen as one of the reasons behind the poor attendance at trump's campaign rally in tulsa oklahoma. forcing a wildly popular app after smartphones of millions of americans could prove to be an unpopular move ahead of trump election and we see you out to 0. now the u.s. is accused china of digital all thora tarion isn't as tensions increase between the 2 world powers chinese telecom giant huawei has these was the 1st target for the
4:18 pm
u.s. which washington called a national security threat and put pressure on other countries to do the same now the world's biggest tech platforms google twitter and facebook are banned inside china talk has denied any links to the chinese government but we we said earlier trump went ahead and vowed to ban the chinese video but some critics claim the president has all teary motives to wanting to ban the arab talk users flooded the trunk campaign in june with fake requests for reservations for a rally in tulsa oklahoma leaving thousands of empty seats joining me now is a corneal you are an associate professor in diplomatic studies that the university of oxford good to have you with us mr boehner how much of this is now sort of an extension of the war of words through t.v. radio and newspapers and does it really have an effect with the exception of that one trump rally in oklahoma. thank you very much for inviting
4:19 pm
me on and for sending more. i think what we think our nation that like the president found it doesn't stop when he followed one in about the structural plan we can call it that your politics of information in the sense that information is. strategic resource that's what a good source with national security or national security irrelevance in marseilles information can be used for anything that you advised this information we've seen that in the past but that's not necessarily the key is the x. the concern here is it's about the information that we use personal information that we use when the use of us that we deal about them in a matter that political leverage a lot of military commanders like someone taking part in 9 national negotiations so if this information becomes available to us policy that could have strategic value
4:20 pm
so that i think is part of the larger structural problem that we've seen all of these and i wanted to put it in into context that we have to ask us why not so the broader context with your politics of your politics of information as we have also to take note of the fact that this started before the 'd arrival of president trouble in 2016 what i mean by the united states the powerful committee on finding him but once we still scrutinize these investments in has it defective technology so the link president obama they blocked a number of investments in the senate come back that is what happened in 2000 a team in this committee was that they expanded the powers of the committee to oversee the culls action involving what they called sensitive users of big so it's not only a valve howard well. but. how
4:21 pm
how it's being. you so do you think then that yes or do you think then the apps such as tik tok and that come into the arrive in the future are going to be sort of innocent poles innocent victims of this geo political conflict all the designers have to try and find a way of designing apps that cannot be criticised by the politicians cannot be used by them to their advantage. absolutely but this is hard thing to do isn't it because you know overseeing the way in which big bank collapses as of yours i mean requires you know quite quite a lot of. cooking life policy which is not available at the moment. i think it's important to know that. india has something similar beginning of july in the context of the war conflict. and the region.
4:22 pm
burning 68 applications as well but i think you are right but the problem in the future is trust to what extent we are able to trust that our personal information is not used to use it made by by 3rd party in europe that was the push behind the g.d.p. up event and before that his nation that we can come to calling out which has more seats and i think we'll get to see more regulation trying to look into how the fact is not only got about those mortifies use by a company of course you know buy buy buy 1st party in the side of your political situation but the so mention another side you mentioned the pulse off event which i think it is correct in terms of the perception that he's created that $100.00 days before the election might be a situation in which the invalid was pretty humiliating for of
4:23 pm
a president trump and the one thing. politically to get this but it is another piece of the father is the national security law. that was the thing that he and the john and in principle that little piece of the generation allow was china to come 1st tick-tock 'd to share information about people who may quickly size or maybe come on the power of the government. so they are several well about that coming for peace but i think you are right in the sense that the election now. we. both agree here i told our. child of. course we should see certainly what how this pans out in the future by allah thank you so much for joining us from oxford in london oxford or in the u.k. thank you very much for having. their answers it's the rest of the head of what it
4:24 pm

4:25 pm
the past iran have lured people to iraq with have been detained one such individual was ruled as the activist in journalist and his death sentence was upheld and entering in court at the end of june but this capture will be seen by iran possibly yes more significant though one other aims in the long term. well the aim is to topple the islamic republic now they said that they would do that within one year obviously that hasn't happened and that the reigning media also refer to them as monarchists because the founder of my cherry was also part of an organization called the kingdom assembly which wanted to restate the monarchy system that was here before the stomach revolution 41 years ago now as far as iran are concerned these individuals are terrorists or leave it there and to get more of course and comment from the iranian government for the moment assad thanks no iraq's prime minister has announced a general election next june which will be a year earlier than shergold was the vile for the me promised an early vote when he

4:33 pm
neighborhood in the heart of the lebanese capital stories of poverty are everywhere households have been pushed into desperation i'm a liberal him like so many other families is a victim of the rapidly imploding economy she says it has been hard on her 11 year old son hamza who's had to adapt to a new lifestyle but one of them. were borrowing money to feed her children for 5 months short on house rent my husband isn't working a family will die from hunger if the situation continues. children are already hungry more than half a 1000000 of them in the greater beirut area according to the charity save the children poverty is a real thing some children currently go to bed hungry the negative coping mechanisms for the time being are able to kind of fill some of these gaps but on the long run if there is no macro level and sustainable solution there will be
4:34 pm
death. already half the country lives in poverty here in the northern city of tripoli families struggle with soaring food prices due to the local currency losing 80 percent of its value. children are being deprived from buying what they want people are under so much oppression of. decades of corruption and mismanagement are blamed for running the economy into the ground and political leaders don't seem to have a solution. non-governmental organizations say $80000.00 people have lost their jobs in recent months bringing the total number of unemployed to $430000.00 or 32 percent of the workforce many war and up to $1000000.00 out of the $5000000.00 lebanese population could be jobless by the end of the year. the world food program says 2 thirds of households in lebanon have lost their income and some have started to sell whatever they can to survive about.
4:35 pm
belonging to buy food and water. many people are in debt and depend on charity but those who were able to help now need help themselves yes there are no lives being lost as an typical natural disaster or a typical war but lebanese and people that live in lebanon. they are falling off the cliff so you have lives at risk aid agencies are already calling it a humanitarian crisis as lives continue to be destroyed by lebanon's financial meltdown. people. who you saw in that report from save the children joins me now from beirut could have you with us on the program obviously a very serious situation and we do assume that there is a direct relationship between the financial crisis that the country is experiencing
4:36 pm
and child hunger this is of course thank you for having me 1st but there is of course a great direct relationship between the financial crisis and child hunger i mean you've got a lot of a lot of information already in the report but essentially between the currency devaluation of him going to. really implement. what is now a. hyper inflation you have all of these elements to an increasing number of people around 50 percent. living below the poverty line are unable to meet their basic needs what safeguards are there in the constitution or in law to protect children under these sorts of circumstances is there anything at all. well of course i mean you can look at it from
4:37 pm
a number of different perspectives. the right good decent language of human rights the right if you question the human right the right to do i think with housing appropriate health care so if you look at the menu of these prospective you know you would have. a constitutional experts i'm not sure that there's anything about what we get but i know there is something that would be about to begin to fight like the magic you know complex the very notion of coverage indeed i mean it's no different to children in the urban areas compared to the rural areas we know lebanon is a small country it's often said that you can ski in the north again swim in the south within 3 hours of travel so that the country is small get to it is diverse in the same respect they're going to. be of course the differences this country you're referring to and that i would like to. focus on the grid. this is where we have the numbers i would expect that are going to sound like certainty at this stage but the
4:38 pm
numbers are not much better in tripoli in the north korea example or in the south or in the. generally not is quite centralized and generally. better actually under remote areas so the numbers are going to be you can only expect that they're actually worse. in this particular incidence you know we're seeing that as you say in your report that children across the board from all demographics are affected in certain usa european countries we see a scenario where food banks and charities are able to help those less fortunate the situation in lebanon is very different everyone is affected and i think that's the stark difference isn't it compared to other countries that are in the same sort of situation. yeah i think i think everyone is affected as you mention and i think there's also let's not forget that equivocation so even the people for example who are still part of the middle class although the willing blood or part of the upper
4:39 pm
class who could theoretically support are unable to access their funds. bill i would say that don't you reason why the negative effects of the crisis would be going through since october and even before actually but let's let's choose october as a starting point the reason why the effects have not already been worse is because there's been a lot of the in for a little support network solidarity initiatives with banks as you mentioned local n.g.o.s that pay to play the greater role and they're always you know if you think about it from a kind of localized patient perspective in terms of the american spectator the local n.g.o.s and you know the grassroots organizations are the 1st to respond 100 best to respond directly to respond and they are doing that to some extent but their ability to fundraise is limited their ability to access liquidity actual cash is limited and as you mention the public is becoming so widespread that there will be no one left to help the even more vulnerable or they the terrible situation in
4:40 pm
lebanon is experienced judge succors thanks for joining us we'll save the children in bay ridge thank you. chile's president has announced a 4 and a half $1000000000.00 boost for the economy to help soften the blow of the pandemic sebastian pinera made the announcement during his state of the nation address in america dissolute seen human reports from santiago so. everything about this year's state of the nation address was a normal starting with the fact that it was delivered more than 2 months late because of the pandemic the president's problems began much earlier. these last 9 months have been very difficult and demanding for everyone and they have been very extraordinarily difficult for me. but like many chileans not in the past and was taken aback that he barely mentioned one of the most important reasons 9 months ago a nation wide social uprising brought millions of chileans out onto the streets to
4:41 pm
