2:01 pm
future, but in democratic republic of congo, mining for materials used to make their batteries devastating lively ah, current of ours pandemic to get us going the south and the discovery of that new variance which has been cold, omicron, and have seen countries around the world restricting travel to and from southern africa, that means south africa botswana, zimbabwe, namibia la suit through s were teeny mozambique all affected by these rules. news which has shaken the world economy. it has to be said just as it was showing signs of recovery. stocks on wall street took a hit and friday before they closed for the weekend. and in south africa itself, the number of confirmed cases of our micron are still relatively low. but the speed with which young people are getting sick is causing alarm. so let's check in with family to miller reporting from johannesburg this hour in south africa. you might
2:02 pm
say fair enough, not happy about the fact that they are just being shut off from the world after informing the world, doing the right thing. and that's exactly the complaint from the government and scientists in south africa. they said, we've done the work, we've been transparent and instead we've been punished when this is also a variant that's been detected in other countries. not just in that southern african countries in south africa. in particular, the minister of health has said that south africa has been punished and that this kind of approach has also led to a certain amount of panic and uncertainty. and the government is looking to have this decision being put to on the read list. once again, with the struggling economy, having that decision reversed and they're talking about talks with the e. u as well as the united kingdom in the days to come to try and have this decision reviewed along with the world health organization and that kind of
2:03 pm
sentiment as also trickle down to the general public in south africa will agree that this really is a punishment talk about panic and uncertainty about on. so for me to tell us a little bit more about that, the scenes, we've seen it at the airports and i wonder as well people rushing, trying to get their vaccines done now as well. well, that's an interesting point because south africa has had an issue around vaccines and the amount of people wanting to be vaccinated at the moment, around 40 percent of adults have at least one job. and that goes down to 55 percent for people who have had 2 jobs. and because that has been that sort of a hesitancy news like this, we sciences are saying, well, withdrawal, we're still trying to figure out just how effective the vaccine will be. and keeping you safe certainly won't translate into confidence in terms of people who really aren't keen to be vaccinated. the government wants to 70 percent of the
2:04 pm
population vaccinated by the end of the year. that certainly unlikely to happen, but cases in south africa a couple of weeks ago, perhaps 400 cases through an entire week. it has gone up to about 2000 cases a day. but that's also part of the frustration is that africa has 2000 cases. they're constantly monitoring what's happening while they are, you are appealing countries was sitting with averages of between 20 and 40000 today . and so it's a complex situation for south africa where they say, again, there's the, i'm really treated and they're really doing the best they can in terms of handling the countries position within the cobra. 1900 pandemic. thank you. saw me to mila reporting from johannesburg. this saturday, this latest cove at variance may well disrupt the global economy just as it was starting to show some signs of recovery. news of the recon variant had an immediate impact on wall street stock treasury hills. they all fell on friday,
2:05 pm
which led to the biggest oil price drops in. the pandemic began. europe's biggest economy, germany was already struggling to recover before a 4th wave. hit edgar just 1.7 percent in july. in the glove the supply chain could also face shoot setbacks and several countries impose restrictions and locked down further disrupting manufacturing and shipping. and there are indications, interest rates could rise as well in the coming months. it looks a bit gloomy, doesn't it? let's talk to charlie robertson about it in london, global chief economist at renaissance capital. let's deal with yesterday. first of all, the way the market's fell dramatically. the way the oil price fell dramatically. that's not uncommon. is it? it will happen not quite knee jerk reaction, but on the news it will fall and then possibly start to correct. we do need to price in the uncertainty so the market fairly clear playbook. 1 to what to worry about and he was globally place sure it was china, recession risk,
2:06 pm
a new variance because breakthrough vaccines and spread incredibly quickly. that was anyone's major base case until yesterday morning. the markets about the price i'm seeing not 2 percent full. i think the bigger drops but the $10.00 forward in the price a little bit more of a shock and i guess is related to. ready concerns and interest might be doing about v s p r release that we saw few days ago from the u. s. and others. yes, the problem we've got more broadly is that the w h o itself has been saying, look, we need a couple of weeks to really know what the effect of this is going to be. and in the meantime, they will be all this uncertainty and governments will make their own reaction. they're already making their own reactions and shutting down. yeah, for the, for the economy and for the kind of gdc number is the spelling of the fashion story . i don't think the next 2 weeks masses very much. we get to week of blocked friday
2:07 pm
to south africa. that's not such a big deal. but it does mean that the mock is probably don't recover on monday in a straight rebound, unless you've got something start pulling out like the new very it doesn't. kennedy well, it's possible it's much more contagious, but doesn't get anyone unlikely. and the kids are down because that's not the most likely, but we, we just that there isn't a lot. we do know yet. what else should we be keeping an eye on? i mentioned a few things there, interest rights, inflation supply chain, which was already a huge issue. ah, is that the type of thing which can be compounded further? i know we're still in a bit of speculative territory, but yeah, but i guess it's more that the supply chain issues we can that we potentially see potentially see locked down scan in europe or states because it's gonna take pfizer a 100 days to come up with a new vaccine if they needs to and then that needs to be rolled out about people,
2:08 pm
ideally, the whole population. this is a 6 month story and we know tourism gets white. going to pick a holiday to turkey next year. i was looking for $20000000000.00 worth of more money for turkey from terrorism next year. who's going to be looking out of that now? so we know that that's a problem on us. i'm. yes, there's no for up to 170. so at the moment i think people will be rolling for the next few days. ready trying to say a house is going to potentially pound interest right. used for the supply china to come to you question. yeah, i would guess actually eases risks, but people won't be buying quite so much stuff. the fear of the overriding fear, i think, which people would have is that we go back to quote unquote, lockdown. now if we rewinds what, 16 months or so when they were hard locked downs and economies really suffered and businesses suffered really quickly. i think the lesson must have been learned from them that that may be won't work again,
2:09 pm
that it would help with the higher is obviously, but that it could absolutely destroy economies and businesses. if we went that hot again, it sounds. yeah, and we've also got this example of china, which people are saying radio is trying to keep things so restrictive are going to travel international, the country, and now it looks tightly justified. what's fine to start with overall seems to be working for them today. i think it's going to be more political arguments about it . we already saw protests in holland and austria when they re impose lockdown just in the last week or 2. i think it's going to be politically more difficult. and also i think governments will be a little more cautious about what they would spend in lockdown because they've seen this inflation such come out of the current situation. so they will be a little bit more wary about doing that again. next, charlie robinson is from renee, sounds capital in london. great talking to you and getting your views. thank you. thanks very much. on 2 other news in the us says that is greatly concerned about
