6:02 am
stores and pharmacies. angler merkel says new stricter measures are essential in a situation she finds depressing. as it was got anything at the internet and to be quite honest, the fact that we are now in the middle of such a strong 4th wave does not make me happy. it depresses me, especially when i look at certain regions and via in france, where the health services struggling with record numbers of cov, it infections, the government, scientific advisor believes the amik wrong, variance will be dominant within a matter of weeks. lorayne me said, as i can brag a regular volume, the real enemy is the 5th wave with the dell to variant. there will be some time before the army con variant establishes itself in france and in europe. in general, we estimated to be at the beginning of 2022 of at the end of january to mid one in the u. k, where booster jobs will be available to anyone over 18. the arrival of the amr
6:03 am
chrome variant has led to a clamor for vaccinations. we're starting to see people who i think probably anxious about the various been come across in the 2000 people coming for their 1st and 2nd jazz that they couldn't possibly had months ago. you case prime minister boris johnson himself got his booster on thursday in germany. the government will also consider compulsory vaccinations and as people put their hopes and jabs, being able to ward off on the chrome, something that scientists sister unsure about. there's a chilling prediction from the european union's public health agency. it says that within a few months the on the chrome variant could be causing more than half of cova infections in the u. and from the norwegian, capital alls low enough a warning more than 50 people have been infected with the aba crone variant. at a christmas party in a restaurant, the government says they were all vaccinated. andrew symonds al jazeera,
6:04 am
meanwhile, of africa has reported more than 11 and a half 1000 new curb in 19 cases and 24 hours. that's 5 times the number reported just a week ago. when said african scientist alerted the world about the new variant. health experts say ami crohn is driving up infections in the country, but deaths and hospitalization so far arising at a much lower rate. which of the selves than infectious diseases specialist at university of causal in natal. he says, research, i still need at least another week to get a clear picture of the new varied it spreading very rapidly through our community again. and i think you know, that it, this bread is time started very much in how tang providence and is more generalized in that province now. but really what we're seeing across the country now is, is the exponential rise in cases. and that's when the numbers get scary
6:05 am
each day, you're going up by quite a substantial amount and, and what we're seeing still is that this piece of research came out today from some colleagues, giving us a little another piece of the puzzle, really that, that there clearly is an increased risk of re infection, so that's people who have had coverage before. and now testing positive again. and we have teams who've been tracking that over the course of the pandemic can they can show just in the past few weeks that the, the number of people testing positive again, has gone up quite substantially. and that gives us this clue again that this, that this baby and had significant kind of immune evasion properties that it can get right. and some of the protection still most of the spread up till very recently has been in the younger age groups. and so, so a lot of what, what doctors are seeing it's still mild, but we need time for,
6:06 am
for the older age groups to be affected to, to start to really see and get a clear picture of the severity of illness. i mean, all the world health organization has addressed the spread of micron cases across parts of asia. several countries in the region, the band flights from what they call high risk nations, india, south korea, japan, hong kong and australia. a bull report of cases of a new varied. now, we have car me about only grown, suggest we need to change the direction of our response. our experience of the last 2 years, especially in dealing with the variance like build up, provides a guide about what to do now, as well as how to be the future in a more sustainable way. by calibrating response measure to each country context using 5 key tools in combination, we can avoid the red line and meet my health impacts as well as social and economy
6:07 am
option's. well, tony chang is live for us in the tie capital, bangkok, tony, so that there are increasing concerns around the world about on the crime. what more do the w h? i have to say well they said there does appears to be an increased risk of transmission or from the new on the chrome variant and that there is an increased risk of re infection for those people who have or had a coveted previously. or nonetheless, they said at this stage, there is no information on the performance of vaccines when trying to deal with omni crohn. and there's no information yet about treatment. the message from the w h o overall was that the current strategies are working or that we need to keep vaccination programs in place that the unvaccinated need to get vaccinated as quickly as possible. and the boost to programs should be put in place. that's going to be an issue for some of the countries in this region who is still trying to get
6:08 am
people there 1st. and 2nd, vaccinations are. but i think overall, the message seems to be as you heard there from the, from the head of the w. h. o, in the region that sir, that things are heading in the right direction. they said that they, that they understood why countries were closing their borders, but there was only going to buy them a certain amount of time. and i think as we've seen in europe, there is an acceptance to a certain extent that you won't be able to keep these variance out. and, and they are suggesting that countries or should continue to open up. but they should use risk based approaches. and of course vaccination programs are at the very heart of that. yeah, tony, it's worth noting that australia now has a growing number of on the chron case as, what's the broader picture now across the region. well, the w a children fight asked about spikes infections that have been seen in singapore and south korea, countries where there are very wide vaccination programs. those don't appear to be
6:09 am
down to the new variance. however, the w h o suggested that was because of increased opening our policies into increased social interaction. after the, the coven measures the been put in place for the last 18 months. they said that was likely, but they did note that serious infections and death are remaining very steady and relatively low at the moment. and they said that's a sign that current policies are working. we've also seen countries like the philippines who have had a relatively low vaccination rates, trying to push vaccination drives, or they were aiming for a 9000000 people vaccinated in 3 days. they only managed to get 7.6, but i think it's a sign in this region that in many countries where the omni cron variant hasn't yet been detected, they are acutely aware of the fact that the one thing that's really going to stop this or it they probably won't be able to stop it at the borders, but the one thing from stopping at spreading as delta has in this region,
6:10 am
or will be widespread vaccinations and boost to programs that however, is going to be a complication because many countries here had problems getting a vaccinations they, they were looking for supplies from developed nations. they are getting those 1st supplies now. but booster supplies will really strain the supply chains or they are trying to increase vaccination production in this region. but there's going to be a program that takes some time to come through. all right, i tony chant life as they're in the tie capital bank attorney. thank mean all the u . s. is reported on the crown in 5 states, including one person in hawaii who had no history of travel. president biden has announced tighter restrictions for international travelers. he's also appealed all eligible americans to get booster shots. she had a chance to have more from washington d. c. a president biden had been due to outline a winter plan for dealing with covered before the discovery of the on the chrome variance. but the president appeared hopeful that even those reluctant to get
6:11 am
vaccinated were changing their minds. now there's some evidence in one poll, i won't mention that because i'm not positive of the number was told this is i was leaving the white house that there is an expectation that 30 percent of the non vaccine center. no circumstances would i get a vaccination because of the new variant are now saying i'm going to get them activations. biden is filing an approach based on what he calls science and speed, and not chaos and confusion, the underlying principle of his winter plan to make resources available to prevent another lockdown. it doesn't include shutdowns or lock downs, but widespread vaccinations and boosters and testing a lot more in order to ensure the 100000000 eligible americans who have yet to get a booster shot do so they will be contacted and availability ensure hundreds of family vaccination clinics will be opened, where all eligible age groups can be vaccinated out the same time. and lobo

6:13 am
our targets of vaccinating 40 percent of the population of every country. by the end of this year. and 70 percent by middle next year, something button didn't announce was requirements for vaccination for domestic ad travel and measure that some of you will further nudge the u. s. as unvaccinated eligible adults to get the short. but at a time of nationwide legal wrangling of a vaccination mandates in the workplace, that would clearly be a hard sell for some shape or time. see al jazeera washington for a short break here, down to 0. when we come back signs of progress as iran submits to draft proposal to european powers that talks to revise in 2015, you can add an all new experience. the visually impaired football fans. a fee for our cut, martin that has been a and
