8:33 am
hoping to live better with less. let's just throw everything away. hours there will exclude the simple living movement aimed at reducing personal consumption, credit and clutter. and i hope to be here as a result, a simple life on al jazeera. ah, i hello, i'm molly inside. this is counting the cost on al jazeera, your look at the weld of business and economics. this week, as big pharma refuses to shad coded vaccine secrets, the world health organization hires a south african lab to crack the m o n. a coat. we find out why pfizer is prepared
8:34 am
to shad the recipe for its anti viral pill, but not the vaccine. i'm returned to the skies back said by the pandemic. the airline industry hopes to put the billions in last. as behind it, we talked to the former chief executive of british airways about the industries recovery. i'm doors of jibari at the doha international airport where this experimental, boeing, triple 7 x is paying a fleeting visit. it's already behind schedule. i'll explain why some of his biggest customers want to know when it will be delivered in a real game changer. that's how pfizer is chief executive alba borla describes. that's coven, 19 oral anti viral drug, the pharmaceutical jain. james, it helps the risk of hospitalization and death by 89 percent. global markets have welcome the needs of the additional weapon in the fight against cove. it a virus which in 19 months has crippled economies and led to the death of more than
8:35 am
5000000 people. but on surprisingly, campaigners are already raising concerns that the rich world will once again, corner the antique faro market. let's crunch some numbers. the biggest makers of vaccines have seen super size sales of their coven jobs. 5 expect sales of 36000000000 dollars this year. and astrazeneca foresees revenue of just over 2000000000. now take a look at this chart from bloomberg using data from health intelligence analysts affinity of the 2 plus 1000000000 doses of vaccines produced by pfizer by and take the vast majority shown here and chunky dark blue went to high income countries with less than a $150000000.00 doses to low income countries. that is a 150000000 out of 2000000000. compare that to the vaccine produced by astrazeneca, lower middle income countries, like india, is shown here in light blue received the vast majority of the 2200000000 doses
8:36 am
produced. so why does this matter? well, apart from the obvious health reasons, the economist intelligence unit predicts that countries that vaccinate less than 60 percent of their populations by the middle of 2022 will suffer economic losses of over 2 trillion dollars between 20222025. well, it looks like history is now repeating itself, and wealthy countries are already cornering the market for coven 19 pills. the united states has done a $2000000000.00 deal for $3000000.00 doses of a rival drug for mug. pfizer has agreements in place to sell its pill to the u. k. australia and south korea lies as new pill could be available in 802022 if regulatory approval is given. probably expecting pushback the company said it would license its pale to the un medicines patent poll to provide low income countries with a cheaper option. which is in sharp contrast to its attitude to handing over the
8:37 am
payton's for its job, which is forced the world health organization to high a lab in south africa to crack the m r n a code. meanwhile, bonsai can madonna have announced plans to settle plans on the african continent to produce their ammo and aid jobs? germany's bon tech says it would go further. i'm start with such work that a new vaccines for malaria an h i v. what does this all mean for the developing on low income countries i'm joined from nairobi by dr. n. g guitar. he's the chief executive of m ref health africa. he was appointed commissioner of the africa cove and 19 commissioned by the african union. many thanks for joining the program, sir. that's been huge pressure on big farm in wealth and countries to end this vaccine inequality. but when 19 months into the pandemic, and less than one percent of all vaccines have gone to poor countries. why is that? because of greed, literally, and you know,
8:38 am
if you look at the environment which tend to be called the shocking balance, which is driven by trade practices, supply and demand. and therefore the person will have the money when the vaccines from a mac adult. and that is it, so we have doses that have been stockpile for each countries. and now they can do that using those low risk people and also using the type those needs. well, what country i still waiting to get their hands on. it's not about options of resources for resources, right? but since what country, but it doesn't help the rich country. this is the problem. even when developing countries often vaccines that costs they're having to take out loans to pay for these. so their debt burdens are getting worse. so what's solution is terrible because you see what's going on. the institution like the one bank, which i was not presenting dick as a solution to receipt of boxing them solving, bake with a problem. but as we know of that actually challenges that complex,
8:39 am
which is holding one was $10000000000.00 to buy $2.00 for the poor countries is unable to do this anyway. so what comes up in big bits to patchy, some of the arguments, bucks in the scene that can be bought by the probably about percentage what countries it is an injustice country that, that have to already include them straight to her budget to vaccinate their people . having now to include debt, which i mean, but in future we're going to have a serious problem with a few cars based driven by man. the general health system, patricia obviously is it's a disaster, dr. guitar, let's talk about this plan by the w h o to pay a south african company. it's called african biologics. to attempt to replicate madonna's coven vaccine. what do you think of this plan? and do you think they're going to be able to do it? well, i think the plan that we're hearing from the blue chill enough is more about learning and don't think it has any capacity to produce in that are needed for africa.
8:40 am
otherwise, we may get some boxing. but he's more learning agenda because whatever they choose to do it engineer an existing i'm out of need from dana so that we knew that for teaching, this is really what the issue is. and then the question is that a, whether it will actually be ready in time, on landing, in time for the corporate? but think the truth is we're going to not get adequate covered, but since from this initiative but showing nothing about it, we will learn future and we will prepare my name for the condition, but maybe you haven't seen for now even though we are asking for ending the ending 5 boost as i'm q. everyone has the most importantly, sharing knowledge, existing money, so that we can ramp up the box mission and also share what devolving this is, what our, you know, even our own and injustice petition is asking for. we need to committed action. these are long time much and will be good by the cancel the current problem which
8:41 am
box in a box in delete it tonight. it's called place when it comes to the new curve, 19 pill treatment pill, pfizer said it will allow it to be made and sold in $95.00, developing countries. how do you view 5, his willingness to share the peyton, to its anti this anti viral drug when they've been so rigid about their vaccine? well, it shows you that actually the key to these activities is actually profiteering. if you look at the amount of money that actually is being put together by companies like what it will meaning and saying that when put in $500000000.00 to be in the future, they're probably late cents to mention buttons m p p full countries. but they're making, i think, between a pay them down and then we can make a $3000000000.00 a profit next year. so it is actually talking to them. and i think they're really meeting well, they should actually see it. we're not,
8:42 am
we're going to provide the technology end of the month with any one factor so that we can round up do that. then we have enough for everyone including this one. that was, that was one based on that. but for now, even holding the button for the most necessary tool, again, it's probably $900.00 right now. then providing they, you know, the patent for, for the medicine point on want to pick it in future. when you're holding does, i'm telling them which countries, because of non terms and pricing is actually i would say it's unfair. i need to get on it. so what do you think of these plans by medina and by, in tech, to build plans for vaccines in africa? is that going to change in attitude from these companies? well, again, as i said further 1000000 dollars, you're trying to support, you know, the content when you're holding millions of those, these, you know, 9 transport in pricing that you're selling, reach countries. it is a good just job, but even up to now i'm waiting to hear what the problem is in terms of well yeah,
8:43 am
we're good with the minimum unfortunate plan that's going to give to me. those are the year, you know, well actually in other places you're having $100000000.00 a month. how it took me in the year, going to help the problem of access into the country into the not to go. it will not, the immediate action is actually to move probably maxine facility and facilities like africa vaccine tasking. ahead of the cues. and actually, as those people at stockpiling, talked about the queue so that we may dispute faster, even as we discuss future factory of vaccine believes of a can deny that needed. now, not in principle to 3, not in 24. we may prepare for the future, but we need about 2 d for the day to be as we speak. understand that but investment is investment and we have these new buy and take hubs that have been planned for countries like senate gal, wanda. what does that tell us about these particular countries ability to track
8:44 am
these huge manufacturers? well, the point that we need to make is look up because not asking for fault for what seems to be just don't need to to them. we have money too much lateral. now these countries run the cynical south africa, egypt i give you that actually planning front of a thing i do, but i think i'm the thing that i'm asking for myself is that up because, you know, i'm, i'm booked up, but response i think is your mom talked about for the one that came to mind a little while you wish to talk. thank you. then we move from talking to you soon. we are going to be a week or once more, i mean, cynical, we need to partner with africa centers for disease control, africa union. i'm been a while in africa, not been fucked about for africa. then we are lead we, you know, we're driving towards these people putting $500000000.00 in, in cynical, i'm yet, and then i, you know, obviously that africa, that would be much more powerful. so we're happy to have these initiatives,
8:45 am
but they are far from me now. they're far from adequate. dr. agatha and g guitar, he chief executive of address health africa also commission of the africa cove in 1000 commission by the african union. thank you. thank you very much. oh, that's always is bringing back into service. the ed bus, a 3 a c super jumbo more than a year off to ground at the at cross. at the time as chief executive bacchus said, buying the plane was a big mistake. g to the high cost of running it. well with climate change in huge losses racked up during the pandemic. airlines are queueing up to buy more fuel efficient plates out there. as do us, a jabari has a story. this is the world's largest twin engine plane. the experimental, boeing triple 7, x made a short visit to dawes international airport. as the firm attempts to boost its image. boeing says it has sold $309.00 of the plane worth more than
8:46 am
$442000000.00 each. the $252.00 foot long passenger plane had been due to launch this year, but has been delayed by some technical difficulties and cause our airways is not only one of its top customers, but it also helped develop the plane. the reason we are on was investing in your technology is said to have a sustainable growth this aeroplane is 20 percent more fuel efficient than they cut and triple 7. which means that we will be burning 20 percent less fuel. so, lesser emissions from the sarah claim, boeing is looking to improve its image after its $737.00 max plane was ground of last year, following 2 fatal crashes that killed $346.00 people. the grounding of the $737.00 max, which had been boeing's best selling plane,
8:47 am
is estimated to have already caused the company more than $9000000000.00. but at this event, it's all about strengthening old bonds. they've launched the airplane with us. they've developed the airplane with us. they've helped us design the airplane, and they're helping us improve everything around it. and that's why we're here today. the delays and delivery have been one of the major issues for boeing. airlines are desperately searching for claims that are more fuel efficient to meet higher emission targets from regulators. but this plane is already behind schedule and some of its biggest customers, like emeralds are not happy. the boeing triple 7 ex model was scheduled to be delivered to the 8th airline carriers earlier this year. but due to technical issues and concerns from regulators, it's now been pushed back till the end of 2023 at delivery date. many airlines are counting on to replace the current fleet within your more cost efficient model, which appears to be the goal for the future of the evolution industry. dorsey
8:48 am
jabari al jazeera, doha. the pandemic has been unkind to the aviation industry with 40 airlines collapsing under the financial strain, but the gloom may be lifting as borders. we open vaccination rates, increase, and passengers start to fly again. but when will the industry recover to pre pandemic levels? well, that's just the 1st of many questions. my colleague, adrian finnegan, put to willie walls, the director general of the international air transport association. i'm actually more confident that we will get back to normal, but it's gonna take some time in a we're predicting 20232024. we're depending on where you are in the world, but we're heading in the right direction now. okay, about 40 airlines when under, during the pandemic, is that situation going to get worse? but before, before we reach that normally you expecting others to to, to fall by the wayside? unfortunately, i think some will in fact i'm surprised at more, haven't gone at this stage, but i think the risk for some, the still ahead of them,
8:49 am
particularly as they start building up their operation again, because they'll incur course that they haven't been incurring with her craft round it and, and i think getting that so yeah, connection between the revenue and flow and the course outflow is going to be critical because cash's the thing that so you know, everybody is worried about at the moment. so i mean some, some governments and some part of the woods out of bailed out airlines but, but not every country can afford to do that. they don't have such deep pocket stewart. no, they don't am to, we have made a little over 200000000000 has been made available to airlines from government. most of that has actually come in the form of employee support programs to keep people in jobs. and then the, the next biggest chunk of it is in terms of fair loans that will have to be repaid . so it hasn't been, you know, free money that's been given out to airlines. every airline has suffered as a result of the pandemic. so a lot of work will need to be done by airlines to recover and repair the balance sheet. it must become but must have come as
8:50 am
a relief to have the us open its borders at least to, to some countries. and does that take the pressure off? do you think? yeah, definitely, it's a big positive developments from the 8th of november that it's reopen for 33 countries that had been prevented from blind to the u. s. principally in europe. so i think that's going to generate additional momentum as well as other countries look to what the us has done. so i think in terms of signals very, very strong on what needs to happen to get us all back in the area. i know that many people watching itching to, to get flying again to, to go on holidays have to go visit relatives abroad. but while some of us are managing to do that at the moment, i mean, we were talking before we started the interview about how difficult it is with all of districts that are still in place in terms of vaccinations and what have you, what needs to happen well i think the key is vaccination to be on us because we've been arguing for some time the people who are vaccinations should be free to travel without restriction and without testing. and for those who can't access the
8:51 am
backseat, i think having as sensible testing regime in place. so it doesn't need to be the expense of and said difficult p c or testing. you know, it's clear that the quality of an engine testing has improve significantly since the start of this pandemic. but it vaccination really is the key and we are seeing that more and more countries are allowing people who are fully vaccinated to travel . what about the stand, a nation standardization of requirements because of the moment every country has, has different requirements for you to, to before you're allowed. fairyland is, i mean, what role does i out a play in that? i mean that, you know, in case of you reading up the health, this is a look we need to get this straightened under called. and they told me we have been trying to do that. and we're actually seeing greater coordination now. it was the disappointing thing. i felt at the beginning of this pond to make that in effect, every country went their own way, even within europe, where you would've expected the 22nd country. as in d, u to coordinate with our policies, we saw 1213 different regimes in place. it is going in the right direction. and in
8:52 am
fact, one of the positives has been the development of the you digital covert certificate, which has now been adopted by over 50 countries. so we've been encouraging countries to have mutual recognition of passes or to adopt a single pass. and, and, you know, it has been improving, but it is still very confusing for the average consumer who is trying to work out. what do i need to do, and when do i need to do when you talk to governments, what, what are the main concerns they continue to highlights, you know, protecting the health of the nation. and i think the data actually points to a, you know, a regime that could be much more relaxed. i quote figures from the u. k all the time because people flying into the u. k. since february have had to take a pc or test after they arrived and of the $9000000.00 tests that were taken up to the end of september, the positivity rates was less than one percent 0.8 percent. while at the same time in the general population, the positivity rates was 7 point one percent. so the risk was not from people
8:53 am
flying into the country, the risk was already in the country. and what we've been encouraging governments to do is look at the data and make decisions based on the data rather than apply rules that may have been sensible when we were dealing with an unknown event, i can february of last year when we were talking a few minutes ago about governance bailing painting our airlines. you said, of course those that's not free money that that's lunch. if they're going to pay that back. do you think that the government says they seek to recoup the money that they've, they've learned to airlines are going to start passing on costs to passengers to the likes of you and me track station. yeah, unfortunately, i think that is the case and we've seen that in some countries already, the u. k, for example, has increased air passenger duty, particularly for long haul flights. so we are seeing some additional costs beginning to come back onto the consumer. and clearly we've got to fight against that because it's unfair to start damaging the recovery. i think people will
8:54 am
recognize that the on the can now make contribution of aviation is significant. ation and actually can play a major role in recovering economies around the world. do you think that matters to consumers? that the fact that that, i mean they, they don't necessarily see the breakdown. sometimes they just see this great something and say, well, that's expensive. yeah. it's definitely discouraging. some people, particularly when you aren't on top of that, the cost of doing these tests. you know, so if you have to do a pc or tests, we've seen prices ranging from $27.00 to $270.00 for the same test. and so, you know, i think this is an area that will concern consumers, but the good news executives, you said where restrictions are removed and we see an immediate recovery. and that's particularly evident in domestic markets where have restrictions in general have not been imposed. let's talk about sustainability, the industry of course, in the cross hairs right now for, for its emissions. and what does the plan as far as your concerns for the industry to reduce its carbon emissions. so we have a real challenge because there isn't
8:55 am
a quick alternative to the fuel that we used to do, jack kerosene. what we have committed to is getting to net 0 by 2050 to align our targets with those of the purchase agreement and with the targets that most governments have a great to in the short to medium term. we see sustainable aviation fuel. so these are fuels that are generated from other sources that can have a carbon footprint of up to 80 percent lower than jet kerosene. how does the relationship with aircraft manufacturers? i mean, do you go to the likes of adolescent boeing and say we need to do this? we need to get our carbon emissions lower. or is it the other way around? do they come to you and they say, well look, we've got a more efficient engine, we've got more efficient across. yeah, it's, it's, it's a great question because traditionally it has been the manufacturer coming to us and say, look, we've got a better option for you. we're now saying actually, you're not moving fast enough. you need to do better, you know, the aircraft and engines that are being produced today need to be more efficient.
8:56 am
so it's using to see airbus, for example, are committing to having a hydrogen powered aircraft, which clarity would be gross 0 know c o 2 emissions by 2035. and i think that's going to be challenging, but they're, they're getting more and more confident that they can do that. but in the timeframe to 2050, we think that's going to have limited impact. it will have more significant impact beyond to interface. it will come a day when we can fly without emissions that will electric engine say for instance, i mean we've got some, some commercial flights now let's go half around the world on, on one, on one. so fuel will, will an electric power plane or other form of power play and be able to do that in, in time or not. again, not in the 2050 timeframe and that's why we think sustainable fuels is the answer there. but electric hybrid electric, these will be part of the solution, particularly for shorter range flights and, and hydrogen from 2035. and again, initially for short range, but beyond 2050,
8:57 am
i think the will be technological solutions of will enable us to fly without missing any c o 2 living. and though her i've, i've, i've been a frequent flyer with, with colorado for a long time before that the last time we met. i was a frequent b, a flyer because i was working for another organization. whenever i booked a ticket and you completed the purchase, it was ox. if you wish to offset the cost of your, your carbon footprints. and i've always wondered what was that, what was the take up of that like very low. yeah, yeah, very low impact. lufthansa disclose some figures recently where they said it was about one percent. so when the auction is provided to consumers, i think a lot of consumers look at it, but they're, they're not actually availing off that facility. so while the price conscious, they're not necessarily socially conscious as well, i think they are becoming, you know, and consumer behavior changes. and that's why we, as an industry, we've got to make sure that we are listening to what consumers are telling us. and more and more people are saying, this is the number one item will, it's been great to you. thanks for of good to see. and that is our site for this
