10:19 pm
a safe zone somewhere along the borders where these people could gather free from the fear of arrest by the military and actually start the operations of a proper government it's really been formed in part to stop other countries giving recognition and legitimacy to the military that hasn't worked in the case of assy and we know that senior gentlemen onli will be going to carter on saturday for that meeting and it may explain somewhat why c.n.n. hasn't communicated i think the asean leaders are unsure what this national unity government is who to contact in the but there is an awful lot of anger within me and most certainly that we're seeing on social media. c.n.n. has turned to the generals and seems to be shunning this new civilian government. russian opposition leader alexina valmy is ending his hunger strike after 24 days

10:21 pm
laid out how the united states will achieve the target of cutting carbon emissions in half by 2030 which he announced on thursday he invited climate advisers and business leaders to flesh out what he believes is a valuable economic opportunity of tackling the crisis while creating new jobs among them bill gates governments and the private sector to work together. we need to develop and deploy breakthrough technologies that allows to eliminate emissions throughout the physical economy 2nd we need to tap the power markets to fund and deploy these innovations for example by finding creative ways to finance technologies and by leveling the playing field so they can compete with fossil fuels 3rd governments and corporations need to adopt policies that will make it faster and cheaper to make the transition and leaders will need to reward those who
10:22 pm
take difficult stops. and i was out there as white house correspondent now can they can we i suppose interesting thing is that it's very difficult to force the private sector to move financing away from fossil fuels into clean energy but that was the focus today. that was the focus but you know you have to remember that the u.s. president has put out this bold agenda in terms of emissions reductions that was the headline from the 1st day sensually that they wanted to bring this down to up to 52 percent of the 2005 levels and to do this by the year 2030 so today's all been about how to make that happen so in terms of pushing the private sector it's going to take an overhaul of domestic policies at least that's the belief of this government so there was a talk today about how that would be achieved so we heard from the treasurer rather
10:23 pm
the transportation secretary talking about the new standards that may be put in place as early as july with respect to those fossil fuel burning vehicles trying to encourage more americans to buy electric vehicles and also talking about the importance of incentives that maybe put in place to put forward those new technologies that we heard bill gates talking about there for example the next generation of solar and other areas where the private sector can get involved and then there's an international component to this is well because there has been this feeling that china is lagging behind when it comes to the development of these new technologies as so the discussion has also been around what it looks like in terms of trying to get some of this sort of public private partnership encouraging not just in the united states but around the world it's very ambitious goals announced as the summit being viewed as a success. well depends who you are and how you vote
10:24 pm
really whether you like what you're hearing or not those that support joe biden particularly states are really excited this is exactly why they wanted this president in the white house they believe the time is now in fact the time was yesterday even 4 years ago and they're worried about making up some of the ground lost under us president donald trump but 1st some progressives they say that it hasn't gone far enough that these reductions should be 70 percent not 50 percent of the 2005 levels and then if you're conservative will they said we should be doing this at all because what they feel is that this is going to hurt ordinary americans especially when it comes to jobs so this is the dilemma that the u.s. president faces a lot of this is talk to this infrastructure plan and he's still trying to push some of that through but even if there is resistance on capitol hill the white house says there are multiple pathways to pushing for the president's agenda and they've only just begun all right thank you very much can be help us all the latest
10:25 pm
there from the white house says. the summit has been closed down. now a new malaria vaccine is being held is a possible gang changer in the fight to eliminate the disease the oxford institute jab is 77 percent effective in stopping infections it's now entering larger human trials to rule out any side effects malaria kills hoffa 1000000 people every year many of them children well i'm address has more from nigeria on this one of the country's worst affected by malaria. it's a very serious problem niger accounts for more than 20 percent of cases global cases and nearly 20 percent of. deaths here and more than half the population is at risk of contracting malaria in fact a lot some statistics indicate that as much as 80 to 90 percent of the population is exposed to malaria so with the coming of this vaccine it will be welcomed
10:26 pm
development for many and however the question is how many people. take the malaria vaccine we remember what happened to the test of the testing of another but seen in karnal some years back by pfizer which is for many judges that killed a lot of people it was scandalous here and now we having some resistance in certain parts of the country about to be covered 90 mm in fact if a lot of people warm up to the idea of malaria vaccine then it will drastically cut in front and maternal death rates in nigeria in fact maternal death rates in nigeria because of malaria caused by malaria is up to 11 percent right now so if that happens it will be good news for health workers it will be good news for a lot of people exposed to malaria in nigeria now here a south korean hospital and not following code rules and expect a telling off from the robot right had a run in with the. sound of cell don't let those cute rolling eyes
10:27 pm
for you this robot is basically a pandemic policeman wandering the corridors taking the body temperatures of anybody it passes and if it sees a group of people too many people congregating together then he is straight in there with me and tell you to keep your distance he says and it doesn't stop there he can detect if you're wearing your mask properly or not and we'll tell you to put it straight. and in this it seems he will not be thwarted i'm told you yes all right to neil to the machine and when he's not busy keeping an eye on us he's off busy disinfecting the hospital day or night sweeping surfaces with his ultraviolet light rays it's all part of using the latest in technology to make our hospitals as safe as they can be and that could become the norm for the future of
