10:01 am
a worsening humanitarian crisis. the un says one in 29 people will need assistance in 2022. thank you for joining us. the new or me con variant is fueling an increase in the daily number of crone of ours cases in south africa. south africa was the 1st country to identify omicron, the number of reported 19 code 19 cases. there has doubled in a day. scientists say the new strain was in europe before it was detected in south africa. let's get the latest from famine miller, who joins us from johannesburg family to a worry increase seat in covered 19 cases in south africa. it certainly is worrying for, for the government here that 80000 people tested positive for the corona virus in the last 24 hours. and as you mentioned that has doubled from the previous day. and
10:02 am
whereas the doubt of variance had been the dominant one in the months before this. this concern that that would now be on the army con variant. the concern from doctors in south africa is that amongst the 500 people who have been admitted to hospitals, and that number is still relatively low. is that 10 percent of those admissions are of young children and at one of the largest hospitals in johannesburg, in coating which has the highest number of coven 19 infections, the people coming into that hospital, the majority of them all over the age of 50. and i'm not vaccinated, so the issue around the lack of vaccine uptake will pull up. take is one that continues to worry, the south african government. but also they say that they are ready for what they say is the early stages of the 4th wave in south africa. and what about vaccination rates? founder is there concern that the low rate of vaccination is contributing to this
10:03 am
spike? that is certainly a concern given that scientists have said that, as long as people aren't vaccinated, we're more likely to see mutations of the coven, 19 of virus, and till africa. the moment has about a 41 percent rate of vaccination of adults. people who've received at least one job that goes down to about 35 percent of people who received 2 doses of a vaccine. the government had aimed for to vaccinate around $300000.00 people a day hoping that 70 percent of the population will be vaccinated by the end of the year. it hasn't reached that target on tuesday about a 175000 people who are vaccinated. there has been a slight increase in the number of people coming in for that job. the government authorities and people observing it said that yes, they have been spooked by this new variant and are concerned about not being protected. and that might see a rise in the number of people wanting to get vaccinated, but for now it's
10:04 am
a wait and see approach. but the government said to me, urging people to go out and also contemplating a mandatory vaccination policy, especially in the new year with regard to places like universities and public spaces is what is public transport such a new one that the government might find they could face resistance on but one that they are considering quite seriously. coming to thank you for the update family to miller live for us there in johannesburg. now the only crohn very and has the head of the european commission urging you members states to consider making over 1900 vaccination is mandatory where we challenges in london with more on the search across europe. farm occur on his speaking europe, with the delta variance, the continent is already the global epicenter of the kobe pandemic. again, lead is worried. what extra was the new variance may bring despite hastily enforce travel restrictions. so sama considering new policies like legally mandating
10:05 am
citizens to get vaccinated. i think it is understandable and appropriate to lead this discussion. now how we can encourage and potentially think about mandatory vaccination and within the european union, this needs discussion. a 3rd of e, you citizens, a 150000000 people remained on vaccinated to many police found a land in order. what science tells us already is that full vaccination and boosters provide the strongest protection against comment that is available now. others are heading that way to austria is bringing a mandatory vaccinations for over eighteens in february. and this is the man replacing anglo merkel as germany's chancellor basil if they were up. cuz what we need is a legislative procedure where every member of parliament votes according to his or her conscience on a general mandatory vaccination, germans,
10:06 am
it's horn about it. king the infant finished on as or i'm against mandatory vaccination is i think everyone should be able to decide for themselves as i'm from . so i skipped in the beginning, i was skeptical because i believe everyone should be able to decide for their own body. but now, unfortunately, it appears there's no other way out of this pandemic, one country that is very unlikely to go down the route to mandatory vaccinations is the united kingdom. yes, the priest, a program is now being extended to anyone over the age of 18. but the government rejected the idea of vaccination passports, and even just making face masks mandatory again on public transport and in shops are the past 3 parliament with much grumbling and abstaining from conservative m. p . 's without crohn. there are 3 big questions without answers yet. how transmissible is it, how severe is it? and how well will the current vaccines work?
10:07 am
there is still a lot of uncertainty around on the crown, and this data will come in and there are scientists around the world that are studying this. but there's no indication to suggest that the vaccines won't work, even if there is a reduction in efficacy. it's still better to have the vaccine because it will save your life. the w h. i says everything that is being done to combat delta, the dominant strain worldwide should be applied, am strengthen for omicron, and in the days to come, we should know better. what we're dealing with, rory collins, how does era london pakistan has announced it will provide covert 19 booster shots to health care workers. and people aged over 50. come on, hire has more in this from islamic bonds, so far over 50000000 people in budget. don have been fully vaccinated and that of course means that just a little over 22 percent of the population. the recognition dr. rich del, on, and children over grad, after the age of 18 will also now be getting fired their shock by day or concern

10:21 am
$41000000000.00 us dollars. do you ends on the secretary general for humanitarian affairs? martin griffith struggled when asked to name the worst crisis. i think it is the most concerning. i mean, it's a terrible thing to have to choose between. you know, places of such great need subsidized is at its worst, and they barely get to mention. you will remember when haiti had that extraordinary earthquake back in in the middle of august, it didn't make the news for that week because of course the taliban were walking into couple of that time. so it feels somewhat improper, somehow to choose among these places. in some of the humanitarian emergencies, for example, somalia, or the democratic republic of congo, the situation has been bad for decades and it's not getting any better in some places though. in 2021. notably ethiopia, mamma,
10:22 am

10:25 am
many were arrested, then have been tortured for month protests with the goal for change with loud and clear here at this monument. it meant that if it's been silenced, and many have flat bellows on living in fear, this is a country controlled by one man, and many say give him the credit down after the election. and the recent micro crisis is clear that he will do anything to stay in power. some one who has not been silenced. if maria can less sneak over at the forefront of election protests, yes. and i'll be in jail for 11 years for aiming to overthrow the state. the 3, the mr. most important thing is something my generation did not understand. now i know what my daughters are doing, what young people are doing is what we should have done here from prison. his daughter communicate through postcards they took, maria knows in our family. we love to beatles. she sent me regards from harrison from mccartney. last week, over high spirits,
10:26 am
despite or prison sentence has inspired many in bella, luce, she famously rip up her passport to avoid deportation. i really wish that europe and the rest of the world would give all or for political prisoners, high priority. i'm sure most of the people, maria friends, my whole family, we all long in for change and it will come. but for now, the crackdown on bella, russian society continues. recently this magazine for healthy living was banned one of 270 civil organizations that have been shut down. still 75 year old active is nina buckets guy he had during last years. demonstration refuses to concede the protest movement as last to where you soon the regime has betrayed its people. 100 percent. i'm sad about what's happened, but i still believe at the end of the day, like all other empires. this one supported by moscow will collapse as well, pretty much blogger, faddie, mattie,
10:27 am
and hundreds of other prisoners. this moment can come soon enough. steadfast and al jazeera in minsk. now women across the u. s. have had a constitutional ride to abortion since 1973. but a case before the supreme court could lead to abortions becoming illegal again, in many parts of the country id, shall castro reports from washington or nearly 5 decades. women have been able to get abortions in the united states, thanks to a decision made within these marbled halls. now, a new panel, a supreme court justices, is revisiting that decision and could take it all back. it's heartbreaking to think that ro could get overturns, and ro has always been the floor and never the ceiling. but 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 russian unworn children who are voiceless are un unable to defend themselves. and they're relying on us with the abortion case before the
10:28 am
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 band unconstitutional. but now the supreme court with its new 63 conservative majority will have the final word. president trump appointed 3 justices, that he's, that he promised would overrule roe vs wade. ah, but there is no reason there is no constitutional basis to overturn nearly 50 years of precedent. during the hearing, liberal justices voiced concern the courts, legitimacy was at stake. will this institution survive? this thing 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
10:29 am
a generation to attack abortion access were about to make it law live enacted more than 100 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 have enacted so called trigger bands that would ban abortion. at the moment that gro was overturned, whole show, the majority of america support aspect to abortion. these protestors organized by the women's minds are in circling the supreme. i had a voice a heard while testers on the anti of inside of their own rally, one and it looks like 15 weeks old, the child is fully form. we know that they have a central nervous system. we know that the heart is beating, so we know that this is not a combo sounds like we were lied to for so many years. the hearing lasted about 2
