7:03 am
a we are hopeful of for recovery and expect nothing less. according to the world health organization, the variant has spread through at least 24 countries. since the 1st cases were found in botswana, it should not surprise us. this is what viruses do. and it's what despite has been continued to do as long as we allow it to continue spreading, but remains unknown about omicron. we don't know how infectious it is, although there is a strong likelihood that it is more infectious than delta. we don't know how sick it will make people with that has been studied furiously right now across the world . pharmaceutical companies are working to tweak the existing vaccines to give people protection from oma kron. in the meantime, the biden administration has ramped up testing capability nationwide,
7:04 am
and is even more strongly urging on vaccinated people to get the sharp season. the best protection against army kron is getting a booster shot right now. about a 135000000 americans are eligible for booster. but only about 40000000 have gotten one thus far. countries including the u. s. japan e u members and the u. k. have all imposed travel restrictions in an effort to slow the spread of omicron, but as the world knows all too well, the virus recognizes no borders. rob reynolds al jazeera los angeles, the women's tennis is, i see, and she has suspended all of its tournaments in china. it says the decision was made due to concerns about the safety of former devils world at number one punch. why? she is. she accused a politician of sexual assault that me to a head said plays and staff could face risks in china. yeah, cha wong is
7:05 am
a senior research at human rights watch. she's applauding the decision. so much respect because this is what standing up for human rights in china. looks like this is what integrity looks like. this is what leadership looks like. i mean, we saw the video clips and pictures of her mining, but we have not heard from her directly. she has not talked to her friends, not ok. press conference. she has not spoken directly. so i would say, you know, she's alive. she lives in beijing or whether she's safe, whether she's, you know, the way we can't tell. i absolutely hope that a more international course organizations, international businesses will follow suit follow w t lead than ever like in china and not be complicit if human rights violations in china, especially i'll say the international olympic committee who participated in this
7:06 am
public and the video was shot, it's really shameful. we've seen that 40 year from engagement with china. what had come out of it is crime, spoke to hong kong in serious crocodiles, in credit against humanity. she appears correct out in hong kong. now i've been disappear. she's a huge star and she can be disappeared, so that it's definitely not working. so we do something differently. the south crane and us defense, james, have met and sold to strengthen their decades long military alliance. the aims to count in china's growing assertiveness in the region and north korea nuclear threats. earlier this week, the u. s. announced it will permanently deploy an attack helicopter squadron and artillery units in south korea. the european union has launched a $340000000000.00 scale to rival china's vast and influential belt and road initiative. the venture will say, investment in digital technology transport and energy projects. european commission
7:07 am
president is live on the line, says the project will provide a true alternative for major investment in infrastructure development around the world. we want to take a different approach. we want to show that a democratic value driven approach can deliver on the most pressing challenges we want to show that it can on one hand, meet not local needs. but also on the other hand, to tackle the global challenges we have. and thus, in a way also of course benefit the european union. because global gateway is also about our strategic interests around the world. it's a new strategic approach to investment scott morris. he's a senior fellow at the center for global development. he says it has the potential to improve overall standards of projects in developing countries. i think it holds
7:08 am
the promise and at least in the rhetoric of our we hear about higher quality projects. i think the devil will be in the details for that. i think there is an important challenge and kind of the frankly, also with other countries in the united states, even japan, that it may be that there's a lot of new money shaping, relatively few projects. it can be very hard to do the very large multimillion dollar instructor projects in developing countries, particularly in an environment as we see today where, where the deb risks are quite high and a large number of countries. i think there will be a challenge in part of just catching up with china, been chasing after the same project with, with multiple countries and the sponsors. we know very well. now the
7:09 am
chinese approaches play was with key problems and the lack of transparency is one of them. there is every day we. ready learn about particularly dep problems and countries where there wasn't even an awareness of an underlying load and the chinese eventually came to like. so i think it is right to go after the weaknesses of chinese financing and pointing to a better approach, particularly as a way potentially to bring chinese standards up. women across the us have had a constitutional rights to abortions since $973.00. but a new case before the supreme court could lead to abortions becoming a legal once again in many states. odyssey was hydra castro reports. for nearly 5 decades, women have been able to get abortions in the united states, thanks to a decision made within these marveled halls. now, a new panel, a supreme court justices,
7:10 am
is revisiting that decision and could take it all back. it's heartbreaking to think that ro could get overturned and ro has always been the floor and never the feeling that i want to live in a country where every single person can have access to health care. that would mean saving the lives of so many question and sheltering, who are voiceless, are unable to defend themselves, and they're relying on us with the abortion case before the court comes from mississippi, where the conservative state legislature wants to ban nearly all abortions after 15 weeks well, before viability lower courts have ruled the ban unconstitutional. but now the supreme court with its new 63 conservative majority will have the final word. president trump appointed 3 justices that he, that he promised would overrule roe vs wade. but there is no reason there is no constitutional basis to overturn nearly 50 years of president during the hearing.
7:11 am
liberal justice is voice concerned. the court's legitimacy was at stake. will this institution survive the stench that this create in the public perception that the constitution and it's reading or just political acts. but many conservative states are viewing this moment as the most opportune in a generation to attack abortion access for about to make it law live in. after more than $100.00 state level restrictions this year alone, including a texas ban on abortions after just 6 weeks of pregnancy that way. but that's nothing compared to what may happen if the supreme court overturns ro, if the court were to do that, it would mean that states across the country that have that of enacted so called trigger bands that would ban abortion at the moment that row was overturned, whole show,
7:12 am
the majority of america support as fast to abortion. these protesters organized by the women's minds are in circling the supreme. i had a voice a 3rd, while testers on the anti above, inside of their own rally, this one and it looks like 15 weeks old, the child is fully born. we know that they have a central nervous system. we know that the heart is beating, so we know that this is not a convo sounds like we are lied to for so many years. the hearing lasted about 2 and a half hours. lawyers for mississippi argue the decision in roe vs wade was egregiously wrong and should be overturned. while the pro abortion side argued, a woman's liberty over her own body is at stake. the justice is line of questioning, offered few clues to how they will ultimately rule their decision is expected. in june. heidi jo castro al jazeera washington still ahead on al jazeera mass raves in bella, rues rights groups accused the government of cracking down on descent. plus i'm

7:28 am
before we went in there, we finalized the design, we, we, we put the stadium in a, in a, in a virtual environments which the computer. and we're simulated every 2nd for the last 30 years, the weather, weather file for door. and we, we saw the amount of cooling, where that, which areas with the stadium would be affected. and after that, we printed the stadium 3 dimensional, using 3 dimensional printers. and we'll put it in a wind tunnel. and again, we looked at how the plan form of the stadium externally will affect the inside of the stages than we just walked into this area here, where it's very cold and windy. tell me about the technology that you're using. so these, these, so those there with that design channel, the distance between the end of the nozzles and the start of the, of the field. so the field to say that is one of the most important pieces or elements within, within the stadium. and you have to have a very healthy grass for the safety of the players and at the same time,
7:29 am

7:30 am
42 degrees c and push it back in the stadium. we're using the same air and call it and re quote it again. and at the same time, what was done is we looked at having the best computers, her control algorithms, and control as using sensory as well in order to make sure that we're doing it as a sustainable as possible. aah! and are you watching out here? and these are the stories were following the sour south africa's daily corona virus cases have dabbled to more than 8500. most of the infections are thought to be from the only con variant. it's now been reported in at least 24 countries. the u. s is
