9:03 pm
you know what was going that far. i do think as i say there is a deal to be done if our partners want to do it but we remain very far apart on these key issues and they are u.k. can't be locked into the e.u. as regular treat or bit we've obviously got to take back control fisheries full of years after people voted for it no deadlines been set for this latest extension of talks frankly there's been so many deadlines made and missed that no one would believe it anyway the only hard date now is the 1st of january by which time these 2 giant trade partners will have separated for good deal or no deal britain intent on protecting its sovereignty the e.u. looking after the interests of its single market it is a nail biting time particularly for businesses for whom world trade organization
9:04 pm
rules in a no deal scenario would mean tariffs and quotas raising the cost of imports and exports with implications for some sectors that may struggle to survive the amount of tax. people are going to be afforded and specially after. you can reach us to return the poorer even more poor so. we don't know how it's going to be you know boris johnson's government is adamant britain will flourish even without a deal no one it says should warre but plenty do don't know how al-jazeera london ok let's talk to paul brown he's live for us from brussels just as jonah was explaining there are things look pretty tense in the u.k. they're obviously trying to gear up for some sort of preparations and in terms of a no deal talk us through what's happening with the e.u. what are the main sticking points there. well michel
9:05 pm
barnier the chief a unit go see it said will brief e.u. ambassadors from the 27 nations tomorrow morning monday morning with the latest states of the negotiations bring them up to speed but as far as in broad brushstrokes what i can say is that divergence appears not to be as big an issue as it seems to be in the week you know we had a journal report this is a mess a deep fundamental importance to both sides britain insisting that the brics it votes gave it a mandate to divert from european regulations or rules to go its own way the european union equally adamant that if you want to access to this massive single market you have to play by the single market rules you can't just simply divergent simply and expect to have the same degree of access that set us live on the land on friday said that the european union was no longer expecting britain to follow the
9:06 pm
rules of the european union as rules evolved as standards got higher as regulations changed but she said there would be differences in the way britain access if the divergence was there and so what i think we're really looking at here is trying to manage the divergence that's what i think they're discussing in the building behind me and we'll continue to discuss how to define for example what is unfair competition how to define what kind of process should be triggered if unfair competition is seems to be in evidence who should adjudicate on that those kind of issues and whether it should be sort of a big transgression or whether it you know minute should be picked up so i think these are really important issues for the european union and for the u.k. they're matters of principle but they are matters which i think can be negotiated and the prospect of no deal is so stark that they're willing to continue right up to december 31st in the hope of of coming to some kind of agreement on this paul
9:07 pm
thanks very much indeed that's paul brennan talking to us from brussels. a lot of waiters from are searching or should have called u.k. in a changing europe he says the pressure will can continue to build on the british prime minister over the next 2 weeks the odds of a deal still to be in the balance probably more likely than not that there will be a deal because of the political tradeoffs that are going to be necessary bars johnson to sign up to the sort of deal that the e.u. is is offering even if there is. a lot of fear about no deal in the in the u.k. this is the level of of. of alignment that the evas ask people and the and the legal to the certainty that it wants that the u.k. won't diverged from the means that it's going to very hard sell the forced johnson mr bracks if you like to sign up to something which is obviously you know that inevitably as with any trade deal going to sort of reduce the you case ptolemy and
9:08 pm
sovereignty like if there's no deal they'll be a huge amount of destruction on day one huge you know an inability for all basic goods to get in and out of the u.k. any sort of speed that is going to be sort of real difficulty and the manufacturing as well as in some of the supply of basic goods like food so that's the real potential short term destruction of a new deal for people's day to day lives the victims of them significant evidence of economic and economic hit will come just as where moving out of the recovery from from cave at 19 so that's why as as as as the possibility of an immediate direct approaches 'd over the next few weeks the political pressure on boris johnson to sign up to something which may be said optimal in his view in terms of his position on regulate on regulation and all sovereignty will increase. plenty
9:09 pm
more ahead in the news hour including fears over missing students after gunmen attacked a school in northern nigeria on a family's plane the government plus why all 3 dogs christians in iraq say they are being pushed out. and that's a familiar face back at the top of the european golf rankings that's coming up with jemma in sports. the 1st doses of fisons coronavirus vaccine are being delivered in the u.s. it's hoping to immunize $100000000.00 people by april pfizer's using containers with dry ice and g.p.s. enabled sensors to ensure each shipment remains at minus 17 celsius workers in michigan are preparing more containers for the next shipment the elderly and health care workers will be the 1st to get the vaccine john hendren is joining us live from washington d.c. john we really can't underestimate the scale of the operation that going on at the
9:10 pm
moment just talk us through what the rollout involves. this is really an unprecedented roll out of a vaccine unlike anything we've really ever seen here in the u.s. and that's why workers applauded as those trucks left the facility with those cases of vaccine kept it a temperature of negative 70 degrees celsius in boxes filled with dried ice they were transported to fed ex and u.p.s. sites and they will be delivered by plane to the 1st $145.00 sites on monday if everything goes as planned by wednesday the 1st 636 locations will have received this 1st 2900000 doses and then from there it will expand assuming everything goes well so we're talking about something like 40000000 doses in december that is the goal that would serve 20000000 people because
9:11 pm
everybody has to get 2 shots and then as you say 100000000 doses by april that is the plan for president joe biden who wants 100000000 people vaccinated in his 1st 100 days in office and the prediction is that it will be something like june if everything in the rollout goes well and then of course we've got the madonna vaccine which looks as if it would be approved within days. so by the end of june the beginning of the summer here in the u.s. that is when regular people will have been vaccinated people who don't work on the front line in health care people who are not in nursing homes those will be the 1st people to get them and people who don't have the kinds of co-morbidities the problems that would cause complications if they were to get covert 19 so by summer things could be much better here in the u.s. that the hope we're hearing from u.s. officials right now you know john there are going to be people of course who are
9:12 pm
going to be for whatever reason suspicious or wary of taking the vaccines they're also going to be people who think that it's just going to solve everything instantly trying to convince people of the reality of what's going to happen is going to be tough business. that's right and that problem may be worse than people think there was a study in one hospital system the jackson health system in florida and that found just among health workers there that half of them said that they were not planning to take the vaccine and another 35 percent said they wouldn't take it in the 1st round but would consider taking it out afterwards these are health care workers people who are supposedly well informed about the vaccine one of the fears is that this was a vaccine developed in record time in less than a year the previous record was about 4 years for the mumps vaccine and there is concern among people that there could be unknown side effects and alex aids are the
9:13 pm
secretary of health and human services took to the airwaves on the morning talk shows here in the u.s. to plead with people asking them to reconsider their questions about this vaccine and that's because in order for it to be effective in order to achieve herd immunity here in the u.s. you have to have about 75 percent of people immune either by vaccination or or other reasons and so this is a very serious problem and that's why you got high profile people like 3 presidents president clinton obama and george w. bush all saying that they will publicly take this on television this vaccine in order to persuade people to take what they've got some work to do in order to achieve that john 100 live for us in washington d.c. john thank you very much indeed omaha money it is about all that just at lancaster university explains the challenges of distributing the vaccine. if we look on to the vaccine efficacy of course the vitamin going on they are close to 90 to 95 percent which is certainly beyond our expectation but when we go onto the next
9:14 pm
generation of vaccines for example talking about the spinal farm in the u.a.e. that as a 92 percent i think it's you that's what they proposed at least sputnik 5 is almost at the same that last year to be 70 percent so once the 1st. front runner vaccines will be taken up by most of the melting nations we were left with the vaccine those are probably at least demand in these countries that would be willing and other challenge to distribute because even for example if we teach to 50 percent of the population in the developing word for erecting that is 50 percent effective basically we are covering only 25 percent of the population which isn't sufficient enough to establish your immunity but it has been a certain level of vaccine as attempts even before the closure of 19 and but it has intensified because primarily the rumors and the speed of the vaccine development and probably more importantly their trust and this is even more penetrated into the black. minorities i mean if we talk about the u.k.
9:15 pm
itself i mean in london one of the sort of indicated that only 40 percent of the black people will take the vaccine compared to 70 percent in the. english white so that is really a big difference and that is going to be one of the major challenges how to build trust and that has to be trained really by the government to bring all the stakeholders on board because until we don't really immunize 75 percent of the population we're not achieving the herd immunity and we wouldn't be breaking the transmission chain of this infection. or the 1st batch of the pfizer biotech vaccine as you survive in canada on sunday the initial batch of $13000.00 will go to frontline health care workers and care home staff by the end of the month canada should have enough doses to vaccinate around 125000 people and regulators are expected to also approve the moderen of vaccine within days. germany's going back into lockdown the prime minister of bavaria warning the situation in his state is out of control chancellor angela merkel says action must be taken to stop the

9:36 pm
segments of the population that need to be vaccinated i think the government here has made a commitment to vaccinate 30000000 people at least which is roughly 60 percent of the population in the hopes that that will achieve what we call herd protection that the level of immunity in the community will be sufficient to prevent large operates of coping $1000.00 from occurring you know whether that's going to happen or not is up and it's a scientific hypothesis it's definitely testable i think the other thing to remember is that right now we only have 2 months worth of data on safety and efficacy for these vaccines and so whether it's pfizer or moderna or amalia or ashta zeneca we still don't have all the information that we need to say that at 6 months and 12 months these vaccines will continue to be safe and effective we are hoping that they will be there's every suggestion that they will be but we at this point have to say that we don't actually have all the information. brazil is one of
