been hard to hit by the rise in covert 19 infections between 70 and 80 percent of new infections across all the africa in this province alone. and that is why authorities are saying that people need to get out and get vaccinated. that has been some level of vaccine hesitancy, about 42 percent of people who are eligible for a vaccine have actually taken that up. but that number dropped to about 56 percent for people who have taken up 2 doses, who are fully vaccinated. the government has sets up a number of drives, door to door awareness campaigns, trying to create awareness around why the vaccine is important, especially because so little is known around the army of variance. and the greatest concern is just how easily it spreads, and that is being reflected in the spike in numbers that south africa is experiencing one area of concern, while hospitalizations, if people has remained relatively low,

have is from 958, lack of investment and government negligence is one of the reasons why we face a shortage. things could be difficult this winter. another problem is that russia caught ukraine's coal supply. last month. russia has recently stopped exporting coal to ukraine, saying that there's just too much domestic internal demand for the natural resource . some analysts are describing this is nothing short of blackmail. an effort by russia to weapon analyze its vast natural resources as a means of putting pressure on ukraine. and it's not just cold. russia is using to try and control your grain. these a gas pipelines similar to those that transport russian gas across ukraine to europe. europe relies on russia for around 35 percent of its energy needs. and
ukraine gets paid transit fees, which were around 2000000000 dollars last year. but those days on nearly over the non stream to pipeline, which is expected to be opperation next year, bypasses ukraine. instead transporting gas from russia to germany under the baltic sea. russia trying to lead to divide europe for russia. multiple energy relations was different states separately. rather than with then go from graham perspective, this means that russia will. ready have has free to, to believe station in between more actively germany has warned russia not to use its gas exports as a weapon, but has been criticized by other european states and ukraine for exposing here to more economic pressure from moscow. so analysts say, russia's aim of trying to keep ukraine inexpensive influence is impossible. it is
simply not possible to have that sort of control away our neighbors. we've all with investing huge resources military as well as economy because in b and as i see on racy she, i think it moscow and age to modify its aids because very simply, natalie winter is just beginning. yes is so worried about the potential electricity blackouts that it's been forced to start importing coal from as far away as the us and colombia. so analysts say economic, an energy pressure from russia will continue because the more ukraine talks about future nato and e u membership. the board moscow sees red cha, strap it al jazeera tor esque eastern ukraine. asylum seekers from cuba joining others from africa and asia trying to enter the east through greece, but they shut out of established procedures and processes,
