8:01 am
a song where president thought or job title is likely to solidify his grip on power . plus reality is that you can't talk about st. we're specifically luxury street. we're without mentioning the name vert, fosten while loses a designer who was the fust black artistic director for louis, but told ah, the south african president is demanding an immediate end to travel bounds. falling the discovery of the new cove at 19 variant, only chrome several rum of hosa address. the nation sang a move by governments to close their borders to southern africa was unjustified and discriminatory. the omicron very, it was 1st identified in south africa. we are deeply disappointed by the decision of several countries to prohibit travel from a member of sodom,
8:02 am
african countries including our own following the identification of the army corn variant. this is a clear and completely unjustified to departure from the commitment that many of these countries made at the meeting of the g 20 countries in rome. last month. the world health organization is also advising against southern travel bands. it says more time is needed to determine whether the omicron is more transmissible or causes worse symptoms or cases of the variance have now been confirmed in more than 10 countries on opposite sides of the world. a south african doctor who raised the alarm about omicron says her patients who've been diagnosed with the new variance, half sown mainly miles symptoms for miller miller reports from janice. beg about this axis, angelie. good sir. it's the south african doctor who 1st to take the new symptoms
8:03 am
in patients who had contract cove at 19. well, she says the symptoms up until ya cases so far have been mild. so what is interesting is that, that the clinical symptoms or not the same, then with delta, extreme tightness, and fatigue, and the young people that was how we 1st detected with a bit of her body, a campaign and headache. very, very similar to what you will normally see with any viral infection. so the africa has to take to just over 50 cases of the new variant and enabling, but swan or 900 people have been infected. they've also been cases in belgium, israel, and other countries. so i to say it may take up to 2 weeks to better understand the variance to determine how easily it spreads and how well vaccines work to protect people. because these more than 30 mutations, that might, it might escape the immune system, or it might escape the vaccines. what we have seen so far is people that has been
8:04 am
vaccinated specie we're far, is it around? we had the last short in august this year did contact the virus and it's mild, very, very much symptoms. there are no known admissions to hospitals. hill people with contract the new variant. what is your view then on the global reaction to this variance being detected in south africa? extremely premature. and you know, it is as if they went into a frenzy and each and every one out there on biking, a great, a high about this. and the question is, you know what, why we have, we have won't that we are going to see a 44 or a wife. we have to sit, they will come at variance. we did say that the variance will mostly come from unvaccinated ivy paid people who's not controlled on the medication or never been
8:05 am
to taking any medication. that's not, that's something that's new. well, scientists say the variant is behind a sharp rise of cases in the halting province. how the spread of the disease is managed should be carefully considered. an increasing number of experts say the low downs and travel bands don't work and that instead damaging economies and causing unnecessary panic, then says the focus should be on ensuring everyone in the world has access to vaccines. south africa, india and other countries have been for months calling for payton waivers to allow for vaccines to be manufactured around the world. so far, just 70 percent of africans have received a job with very low vaccine access, with the inability to be able to fully make our own vaccines and to be able to get out of this. been driving fast enough in a timely manner. with the vaccine motive that we are witnessing, and the stigmatization of certain countries in africa related to the variance. this
8:06 am
is not a good look for the global not what we need is cooperation. what we need is global solidarity. and what we're getting in return is actually of a punitive approach to how we can actually all, many has been doing 2 weeks from now. when we might see a different picture, we might see a total different clinical picture from, from us, what we experienced currency but, but for now we can't even say escaped the vaccine efficacy. we can't say that while travel bands are often used by time to better understand new variance and the spread of the coven, 19 virus. some scientists in south africa, a calling it's a futile exercise for me to mila. i'll 0 johannesburg. ah! fossil results from honduras, the giving left us opposition candidate lead on to sundays presidential election. if the armada castro winds, she'll become the country's 1st female leader. her main rival is the current may of
