order insuring that americans get 1st did sort of 1st in line to receive vaccinations for the coronavirus this is. something that public health officials have have spoken about repeatedly they are afraid of a. vaccine war breaking out between countries with each country trying to hoard its own vaccine so we'll see how this executive order takes effect or if it has really any effect at all past the presidency of donald trump and here in california it's a very dire situation as you mentioned more than 30000000 people under the most severe stay at home orders since back in march in the 1st wave of the coronavirus the metric that the state uses is to get to trigger lock downs is when a region's hospital intensive care unit capacity falls below 15 percent well
12:04 am
southern california and the san joaquin valley have fallen well below that the last figure on sunday for the southern california area including los angeles san diego many other cities was 10.3 percent and just a few moments ago the governor of california gavin newsom explain to people in a televised briefing that the number of californians now in hospitals has top 10000 and that is a shocking 72 percent increase over the past 14 days so it's really all about hospital care and courts when you have overcrowded or filled to capacity hospitals with people suffer. from covert 1000 receiving treatment for that illness there's no room for people who might be in a car accident or or suffer a heart attack or something like this so this is the situation here now there are widespread restrictions on businesses that's getting
12:05 am
a lot of pushback as well and really quite a dire pronouncement from the head of public health the head of the public health department here in los angeles county the largest county in the united states director barbara frere saying we're going to have 3 weeks of devastation before we'll even be able to assess the impact that these new lock downs in effect have had so it's it's a long way to go frankly and of course we've seen this done with the crown a virus everywhere in the wild trying to balance what is a public health crisis but the that mental economic impact tell us more about reaction that particularly from rest on time as and small businesses. yes there's been a lot of pushback there's been a lot of small business owners and restaurant tours people who you know barber's shop owners nail salons beauty parlors there they're complaining that they don't
12:06 am
understand why they're being singled out they they question the science behind it and even some law enforcement officials for example the sheriff of riverside county that's east of los angeles went on put it put a video out on facebook saying that the governor's rules on the shutdown are all wrong he's not going to follow them and he's not going to have his officers interfere with anyone or any businesses. in in enforcing the shutdown the governor has come under harsh criticism for a trip that he made to a fancy restaurant with a group of his friends and associates back in november they were seen dining without masks so there is a question of the park receipt that's raised about gavin newsom and is his ongoing orders but certainly this is not
12:07 am
a popular order it is not something that police are going to go door to door shop to shop to enforce rather officials here in los angeles and statewide hope that the power of persuasion will keep people indoors and out of harm's way mari much thank you from los angeles rob ronald's well here in the u.k. a country that's in 12 hours away from beginning a mass coronavirus vaccination program festo says of the vaccine made by pfizer and biotech will be given out on tuesday those over the age of 80 and cash is going to be 1st 2 in line for this health chiefs are also warning that the road out going to be a marathon not a sprint with the majority of vulnerable people likely to receive it next year eve barker reports now from london. will be among those at the front. of the cue to be vaccinated against covert 19 the racial equality campaigner from newcastle upon tyne in northeast england says it's a relief and i have received

12:11 am
we were us president elect joe biden is building his team to fight the crown a virus pandemic named california's attorney general as his incoming health secretary if confirmed by the senate will be the 1st latino to head the department is known for leading a series of lawsuits defending obamacare will take on the top health officials prepare for the mammoth task of vaccinating millions of americans our white house correspondent kelly how care has more on the reaction to buy pick. it's been a combination of surprise and controversy let's start with the surprise given the fact that he's california's attorney general. many people thought this was an unusual pig given the fact that really this is the health and human services secretary oversees a very large and sprawling health department but what he would say and what many of his defenders would say is that he was an ardent defender of
12:12 am
a key piece of law in the united states that has been under attack for years and that is the affordable care act that gives millions access to health care so in that respect he is not a surprise but still there is some concern about his background being legal versus medical in fact number of prominent medical groups including the american college of physicians the american college of pediatrics have sent a letter to joe biden the president elect saying that they were not happy or they were concerned that he was even being put forward as a contender given the fact that they feel there should be a public health background in that role but still having a bizarre has the blessing of a top official currently fighting pope at 19 and that is dr anthony found the top infectious disease specialist and that certainly speaks volumes as the united states is facing the daunting challenge and the high number of deaths in this
12:13 am
country as a result. so i have for you on this news hour from london nicolas maduro as coalition sweeps the country's parliamentary elections but the u.s. and e.u. refused to recognize the results. marathon of fans campaign for commemorative banknotes a move some economists hope could boost the embattled peso and then later inspire will tell you about the israeli football club now call out by the abu dhabi royal family. now french president has been accused of failing to challenge egypt's president over human rights abuses present. in france for 2 days on an official visit mark owen has confirmed he will allow the sale of weapons to egypt because they have a shared mission in fighting terrorism in the region and reports now from paris.
12:14 am
the grandest ceremony at the start of a contentious visit egyptian president abdel fattah el-sisi was a school to the lease a palace where he was greeted by the french president emanuel michel the leaders discussed regional issues counterterrorism and their shared opposition to turkey's actions in libya and the eastern mediterranean mackerel said he also raised concerns about human rights in egypt with sisi but refused to jeopardize paris's strategic partnership with cairo. conditionally. i will not make our cooperation in defense or economic matters conditional on these disagreements 1st because i believe in the sovereignty of people and respect for our legitimate and reciprocal interests 2nd because i believe that it is more effective to have a policy of demanding dialogue than a policy of boycott that would reduce the effectiveness of one of our partners in the fight against terrorism and for regional stability president sisi dismissed
12:15 am
accusations of rights abuses. it is not appropriate for you to present the egyptian state and everything it does for its people and for the stability of the region as no press of regime. the french president says that egypt is a strategic partner in the region but activists say unless cairo respects human rights such a partnership is a betrayal of french values. france is one of egypt's main suppliers of weapons campaigners say the sale of arms to cairo should be suspended the accused sissy's government of using what he calls counterterrorism operations to crush civil society and arrest thousands of rights defenders journalists and perceived opponents as wrong as the egyptian president uses the fight against terrorism to suppress civil society voice. there is no shortage of partnership that can be done with the government. in 2019 michael visited cairo and spoke about human rights in

egypt since then relations between france and egypt have been strained macro hopes to repair them but campaigners questioned the cost to france's reputation and its actual butler i'll just era powers. u.k. prime minister boris johnson is due to travel to brussels this week in a bid to thrash out a last minute post breaks it deal both the u.k. and the e.u. of called on their chief negotiators will also attend a meeting to prepare an overview of their remaining differences boris johnson as you have on the line spoke by telephone for 90 minutes before releasing a statement confirming that significant differences remained on 3 critical issues is the 2nd phone call now and forth hours as they try to reach a breakthrough before you case transition period comes to an end. if one is let's be to really challenge joins me in the studio now not long to go now henri that is a feeling that will be a deal well i mean it's high in the balance as i mean how often have we said with these negotiations over the whole brics it saga this was crunch talks or last gasp
12:17 am
chance to pull something out of the ashes and it seems to happen time and time again and with this as we are heading towards really the you know the deadline of deadlines on the 31st of december of this year if there is no deal reached between the u.k. in the you then the transition period and on the other side of that the 1st generally 2021 the u.k. and the e.u. will be trading with each other on what's called w t o terms world trade organization terms essential that means that all of these trade barriers spring up tariffs and regulate rechecks accept or it would really throw a spanner in the works of what has been for decades very seamless. between the 2 sides will there be a deal what i think if you're looking at the statement this is being released by
12:18 am
sort of underlying and from a surprise johnson you'd say that perhaps the you know the chances are on the up would boris johnson really decide that he was going to go to brussels later on this week if he didn't think that there was a deal that was possible i would argue that he probably thinks there is and that he wants to be front and center when the deal is actually start of course group of the other way but that's my go crunch thanks very much rory well now unicef is asking for 2 and a half $1000000000.00 in new funds to help children in the middle east and north africa aid agency says $39000000.00 children have been impacted by war poverty and the coronavirus now yemen syria lebanon and sudan have the highest number of children in need most of the funds requested will go towards education nutrition and health care earlier this month unicef issued its largest ever emergency funding appeal for $6400000000.00 to reach 300000000 people or nicola bennett is unicef's
12:19 am
regional advisor for emergencies for west africa for west and central africa and she's saying the pandemic has deepened the crisis in child health and education. we see malnutrition increasing as families have less access to to livelihoods and to income remittances from from wealthier countries are decreasing and so nearly 20 percent increase in malnutrition and then of course the education impact which is just been staggering as a result of co-pays before cough it we had in this region 44000000 children out of school and we went up 128 additional 1000000 children out of school as a result of colditz we're being deprived of learning for months already at a time to the extent possible we're trying to reach them through distance learning through internet radio television but but it has its limits especially in the poorest areas in crisis areas like displaced persons camps about 48 percent of
12:20 am
children in this region don't have access to distance learning so we're working to get kids back into school now to venezuela the coalition led by president nicolas maduro has won the country's parliamentary elections as expected after the opposition boycotted the vote the u.s. and e.u. say the vote was not free or fair and they don't regard the outcome as legitimate on sunday the organization of american states said it wouldn't accept the outcome either the poll elected a new congress which was previously the only government project currently controlled by opposition parties 1.0 the opposition leader is trying to hold his own referendum he says we want to use his approach to duty to stress they're going to share our needs a political solution to end the caribbean for us. to allow for the delivery of those did purges require humanitarian assistance to its people. that have been you know girls under it is rare enough but it is the leaders to parade it guys seem to disability people and to originally come together to start the miniature electorate
12:21 am
says to process. let's cross america additively senior news of course following developments in venezuela from the chilean capital santiago and of course it was just there was such a a mental behind 11 time to say does he still have the international backing he needs. that is really the 100000000 dollar question mariyam you know his his support has been waning little by little you had almost 70 percent support almost 2 years ago it's now fluctuating and it's 83025 percent but by and large venezuelan steel and the polls seem to show this that he's not going to be able to bring about the change that that his will and had once hoped for and also the international community so the question is how much longer will not only venezuelans but also. from the united states all the way
12:22 am
to brussels or ordinary you'll continue to think that he is really the solution that or will do they believe that it's time to change of strategy and leadership and in fact i posed that question to him today remotely albeit he had his that response was that no we said we can't say that having an interim government led by him him because he was the elected president of the national assembly in fact to continues to say that he is still the president of the assembly and that that is still the only valid assembly even though they've just been new elections to replace it but he has he also to sort of turn the tables saying that the international community would be recognizing that model was right that using murder and force would be is sufficient and that the international pressure that's been put to bear all this time isn't enough to change or to oust bullies well that sounds very good but as we've just heard now from joseph borrowed from the e.u.
12:23 am
he's not suggesting that there be 2 governments he's suggesting that both sides in venezuela come together and finally agree themselves on the way for a transition it may not happen but that is what he's saying thank you very much our latin america and his her lucien human. now the united nations says has been a rise in targeted killings by an identified attack as in afghanistan in the capital kabul once described as the country's most secure city grieving family members a calling for aunt says and justice for contra ferry is that with this. it's been more than 3 months since a monster father the peace advocate and minister of education employee was killed on his way to work an explosive device was placed in his car. i'm on wants answers the door. to the killers if

they find the killer or killers. the u.n. says targeted assassinations by unknown assailants an activist government employees journalists and others have increased by 50 percent this year compared to 2019 these attacks spread fear and insecurity often they are carried out by unknown gunmen but another method is more lethal. magnetic bombs placed on cars have become the signature weapon for on planes targeted assassinations that inexpensive is it is used and 10 almost certainly kill and injure not only those targeted inside the car but anyone more happens to be around when the bomb explodes. the head of of ghana stands independent human rights commission so how does that akbar sees these attacks as an attempt to weaken and silence again
12:25 am
a stand civic society we're also pushing for for civilian protection and more generally for seaside to kid an enabling environment for a peace process where there is just public participation because if this goes on i'm just right i'm just really worried about the fact that people will be very hesitant to take an active role in that process pressure has been mounting on the government to provide more security and to fully investigate these murders the government says several people have been arrested in ministry of interior says its investigations show the taliban the haqqani network and i so are behind the killings or intelligent and they are trying to know if a small section. that they are can make it in the big groups of the terrorist that they. made the plot and the flavor of the plot an actual plan to do small groups

12:34 am
priya was created in 2014 to highlight the problem of gender and sexual violence across india but now she's turned her attention to the coronavirus as india battles the 2nd highest caseload globally almost 10000000 infections have been confirmed and more than 140000 people have died rampant conspiracy theories have seen people flout restrictions in some areas health workers have been attacked tanvi gandhi is one of the producers of prius moss joins us by skype from mumbai so this is india's 1st female superhero tell me about tell us about shakti and how the concepts came about. you know i think rama the creator was in new delhi in 2012 when the nearby archaean broke out in delhi which was this brutal repeat on a moving bus and i think that triggered this. absolute.
12:35 am
you know he felt that it was important to talk about this and in 2014 he came up with the 1st comic shakti where korea is actually a survivor of sexual abuse and brutal rape and that started the journey of korea and the subsequent comics that came out which spoke about acid attack and then human trafficking so yes that the journey actually began in 2014 and when you speak about rape an acid attacks and sex trafficking i mean it's. has quite the impact to be disturbed actually openly including these themes in a cartoon because these are not issues that are are openly discussed in the country or within families. absolutely and i think that was sort of brave and incredible and courageous on rahm's part to really to speak about
12:36 am
something distraught through comics getting younger minds young teenagers so that at least there is some sort of awareness people talk about it people read about it and i think it was phenomenal and which is why there was it was recognized it was appreciated it was considered as a gender equality championed by u.n. because nobody speaks about these things across a dining table or with children or schools as such so i think it was so fabulous to be able to come out with something this chong's for brown. you know a super hero or a female that talks about courage that talks about voice that talks about chant and that is how our super power welcome back sion and kindness and so i think it was absolutely so smart and intelligent to be able to target the young mind with that
12:37 am
yes taboo breaking story telling tell us how priya is fighting coven $1000.00. the best spot is the pre-i has come at the right diamond with the 2nd toward the waves hitting globally when we talked about the fact that we shouldn't be speaking about. you know this you know we've we've talked to dissemble might be you know we might be getting the vaccine or it might be too late maybe things would get better but we've just arrived at the right time again speaking about the very basics which is where i'm lost for your safety in mind it's speaking to young children because the most affected you know we have been children who suddenly are seeing a world in which is virtually no snow no school no interaction normal family apart from berenson him egypt who friends and living in a mosque through and through so i think the wind leaves dogget did cool with
12:38 am
beautiful animation and comic is speaking to the young kids speaking about compassion speaking about overcoming fear and really appreciating the frontline health care what those who can be as simple as your parents were super heroes because they're stepping out to look after somebody else. and there's a very sweet message of a strong message that korea actually gives a little girl mean other because it's through the eyes of a young girl that sometimes we have to be strong so that those who love us can also be strong so it's a great way to you know spread the of venice to a younger mind telling them about compassion and wearing the mosque as simple as that. and how and what effect does this have on people obviously you have this
12:39 am
cartoon and people definitely raises awareness it's fighting this information but of course in a country like india i mean you know with lockdowns and with loss crying it's so important to take those precautions because of course you have people everywhere all the time and not everyone has a home to go to. are absolutely i think. the the very basic from the beginning till now actually has been world over including india and india being you know highly densely populated is wearing the mosque and social distancing so for us it was very important also trying to give it a larger voice by getting bollywood. actors to come and support us who are very graciously gave their voice and that amplified the reach of what our message was which was as simple as being responsible and where the mosque which really is the
12:40 am
kind of communication that is going across every day encouraging people to do not drop which do not read it under the noise or on the chin but where to because that's pretty much your oxygen you know well thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us and telling us more about priya the gandhi thank you thank you so much laura and. well and now authorities in the indian state of entrepreneurship are racing to figure out what caused hundreds of people to fall ill with symptoms ranging from north to an apparent seizures to a loss of consciousness or than 200 people have been hospitalized in the town of nuru most have recovered but one person died on sunday none of the patients tested positive for corona virus and voting in time nation has also been ruled out health officials say pesticides could be behind the mystery illness although waiting on the results of blood samples. police in new delhi have stopped
