6:03 am

6:05 am
a blocking tray of a travel from a given country is to just give us time to assess it better. and despite the honor con variant, having significantly more mutations than previous variance, there is cautious optimism that existing vaccines can be adapted to tackle it. you're not going to see a new vaccine in the next few weeks, or even, you know, the next month or so. but he's going to take longer than that, but it will not take the amount of time that it would normally take to manufacture and deliver that seeing it can be done as speed. now because of the understanding and knowledge that we have. oh, for the biggest i, lemme for politicians and scientists is the question of public compliance were violent anti locked down protests in the netherlands and belgium last weekend and switzerland votes this weekend. and whether to scrap the countries vaccine certificate scheme, despite rising infections, that with uncertainties around the on the con, variant

uncertain about how the new army cron variant will affect them. some been civil leveling and then let's go and get vaccinated, especially people my age, so we can protect ourselves. that's all i can say. i know we all have our opinions about the vaccines, but on my side i want to get vaccinated. but there's been a slower than expected vaccination rate in south africa. slightly more than 40 percent of adults have had at least one job. in terms of um, vaccinations. oh to, oh it's, it's some of choice with it's a big snable not with lead to too much or 2 people to get him did. he did makes it easy if his point cuz the living in leg avila excuse, do full drug look right now. his administrative snares and as soon as possible as the holiday season approaches, the tourism industry had expected an increase in visitors,
6:08 am
many of them from the u. k and europe to bring in millions of dollars worth of revenue, the sub african currency, the ryans already lost its value. after the announcement of the new variant, the government says south africa has been at the forefront of testing and tracking changes in coven. 19 and sciences have stressed. it's important to see what the data on the new variant will show before making any decisions. and that sentiment tickle down to the general public way. many believe self africa's been treated unfairly. the government is worried. the global reaction has caused unnecessary panic. it says it's begun talks with the european union and the united kingdom on the latest round of travel bands saying other countries didn't receive the same treatment when you variance were detected elsewhere for me to molar al jazeera johannesburg. so let's begin, dr. marty slash wire davis, she's the director of health for the city of st. louis in the us stated, missouri and joined us via skype. but dr. might be good to have you back with us.
6:09 am
so we've seen a number of countries like israel rock swiftly to close their borders to try and stop the spread of on the crumb. do these travel bands actually work, especially when the veterans has already been found in those countries. we've been doing this for close to 2 years now. and one thing we know for certain travel bands, especially when they are performative in this way target a few countries and not others where we already know the variant has already been isolated, like in the u. k. are ineffective, but not only that, when done in this way, all they do is perpetuate stigma and xena phobia against the country in south africa. they did the right thing that after this this, this variance was isolated by dr. sequel, lily, a moya, as in bob, when scientist, based in botswana on that says nothing about wind is originated, it just means that's where this superior science was given the ability to use
6:10 am
genomic sequencing was done. yeah. and that's an interesting point. you may go back to the south africa says as being punished for announcing this variance. i mean, that's a fair point. as you say, amounts of africa has been quite open and quite good about the genome sequencing. this rushed to isolate the country. right. i mean, this is as a country that has done exactly what they're supposed to do, be transparent, use the superior science to be able to let the world know what's going on. i'm and then for south africa and 7 other african countries to be targeted to travel bands with other countries that we know of right now. have the same variant is completely unacceptable to me, right? when we talk about global of vaccine in equity, we always think about this as a supply issue. but mistrust and access are equal co park and this and do we not understand why mistrust is not perpetuate? when we continue to do things like this is absolutely unacceptable,
6:11 am
but in terms of the science. so how long would it take them for us to find out if on the chron is more infectious, more harmful than say, the delta variant? that takes time, i mean the thing that the great thing about this is we now have a lot of experience, but we don't know about transmit ability. what we do know right now is given the same period of time that we looked at don't in the 1st week to 2 weeks. the rate at which we are seeing this i'm in, in, in communities is, is much higher than we would expect for variance that are not a concern. so that within itself is troubling. but it takes time to do this. matter . scientists are obviously working over time, right? now, just, just to find a quick point to, i mean, vaccine makers, we know already scrambling now to understand a micron, do they not need to modify their vaccines? and what could this mean? you touched on an earlier global vaccine equity. so we know that the mutations that we're seeing does are troublesome in that we believe that they may evade some of
6:12 am
the vaccines out there, but it's highly unlikely that vaccines will be rendered completely useless. what needs to happen now is that the lead needs to stop being travel bands that is a scapegoat. the lead needs to be what we're doing to ramp up efforts to increase global vaccine equity, which includes supply, which includes manufacturing, which includes releasing patterns, but also includes helping with funding so that governments can deal with valid mistrust in these communities. mistrust by the way, that's only made worse by decisions such as the ones that have been made this week dr. marty slash while deb, it's always good to get your thoughts out there. thank you very much indeed. thank you for having me. all right. lot more. so to come here now to 0, we speak to villagers coming under fire as fighting and shelling intensifies in easton ukraine, and as on durance are set to choose. a new president will look at the legacy of a leader accuse of turning his nation into one of the most corrupt in the world.
