12:02 pm
so those winds sustain 260 kilometers per hour. that's what puts it at that cat 5 equivalent. so here's what we're up against over the next little while this is going to be just catastrophic when you consider a storm surge, 3 to 5 meters. so think along those coastal sections. anything under 5 meters will be buried in water than rain. 2 to 300 meters. let's remember this is a mountainous area, so that range is going to fall high above and then gosh, rate down to the ground mud slides and line slides. a big concern. there is those winds, again, 260 kilometers per hour. so that's only on thursday. we're still going to be in the thick of this storm as we head toward friday, cutting across central areas rate toward the west. so this area also going to get inundated with rain more than $300.00 millimeters. and those winds will back off just a bit to about a 175 kilometers per hour. but emily, the next 24 to 48 hours in this area is going to be very dire, so we'll continue to track it out. thank you very much for that update, jeff hancock for us. all right, let's go straight down to jamila alan jogan,
12:03 pm
who was live for us in manila, jim, and what more do we know about the system? well, what we know at the moment, emily is that, you know, thousands of already been evacuated and place in temporary shelters. it has made landfall about a little over 2 hours ago in an island called shirt gough, which is a known tourist destination. of ports have been close out there are. those have been reported have been stranded and flights have been cancelled on classes. although some of them have returned to face to face classes, even those online have been completely canceled over the next few days. if you actually look at the map type, the type when actually covers a huge part of the menda. now the eastern part of the, besides in the mid in our regents and these are actually coastal and agricultural communities at this point. usually in the philippines, traditionally, all the supplies emergency supplies have been re position because this is indeed an archipelago. so what the government is waiting for now is news about how much of

warnings are in place from new mexico to up in michigan. and france is banning non essential travel from the u. k. to slow the spread of the only con variance, that's as the u. k. records, it's highest case count. seem to the, started the pandemic. meanwhile, the african continent trials as the law was vaccinated region in the world, it's struggling to get doses into countries through the u. and back to carfax game, there's also the issue of vaccine hesitancy with some people choosing not to get the shots for a variety of reasons. for more on this story, let's cross live now to nicholas hoc who's in synagogue, capital deka. hello. they make why people in africa not getting the job because well, only the fear of the vaccine it's spreading faster than the virus itself. so well, there aren't many cases or at least known cases of amik chrome. there's been the 1st one announced just last week. it's this fear that's being spread through
12:16 pm
misinformation, through social media. in fact, i spoke to a doctor yesterday who worked at emergency center in a hospital who just did not believe in these vaccines. and one of the reasons he gave his, one of his arguments, is that if this vaccine actually works, then the pharmaceutical companies and western nation should waive the patent of those vaccine to make it readily readily available. and so that africans produce, can produce their own vaccine. so that was one of the arguments put forward. but this has real consequences on people in the area. there's only a 1000 people being vaccinated a day in a country of 200000000 people. emily and here in senegal, because there are not enough people getting backs unaided. i please 2 100000 doses, have been disregarded and another 200000 doses are set to be expired and destroyed . at the end of the month, emily, nick,
12:17 pm
they asked some staggering figures. busy what is the government doing about it all? well, in certain areas of west africa such as light barrett, they've taken drastic steps, which is to force the government officials and the government being the biggest employee liberia to be vaccinated in order to go into offices and to work. but in other parts of the world, there's the fear of putting restrictions in place. remember there was this anxiety of the economic fall out of the coven pandemic. this has really badly affected populations. and when there was measures put in place or trying to get people to get vaccinated, while the population responded badly with protests, there's also this problem of trying to get vaccines into the most remote area. so in capitol, in urban areas like the car or lagos, or big cities like b, joan,
12:18 pm
the vaccine is readily available, but imagine transporting a vaccine vial that has to stay at a temperature of minus 2 degrees in area where it's 40 degrees celsius, where there's all already a form of, of mistrust towards health authorities in remote areas. so that's one of the biggest challenge ahead for the government. so your secretary of state anthony blinking a couple of weeks ago came to the car and allocated millions of dollars to combat mis information. it's, he's as, as, as a keen to get more people vaccinated in the country. so 2 big issues here. the vaccine hesitancy, tried to tackle misinformation and getting those vaccines here on the continent in remote areas where people need it. the most, only 6 percent of the population here in africa are vaccinated. so more needs to be done so that people can be protected against the coven, $119.00 virus, and the new on the kron variance. emily,

16 percent of dutch people still have confidence in the government strategy to tackle the gulf. it been demick, riots broke out and several cities in response to restrictions. why didn't you decide if we want a new government with a new face? this is not my, i should not run. i should not, of course i'm, i'm always responsible for everything which is not going well and is absolutely your crenshaw with the child benefit scandal. of course it happened on my watch. it was not my personal doing, but absolutely true. i was prime minister when that happens, so many, so don't understand you're, you're here again, you're the new prime minister. yes. but we step down as a government in january, we 40 elections in march of my party, one after 9 month and at times painful negotiations. the new government looks very much like the old one. and although the 50 page agreement promises ambitious plans and a new approach, many wonder if it will be enough to restore confidence in politics. the new
12:27 pm
government has allocated billions for far reaching climate policies to build new houses and improve the education system. i would say we have a leader as ship problem in the netherlands. or, for instance, our prime minister positions himself explicitly as her political manager, an he declined to show any moral leadership on important issues. say what the rule of law is, what the significance of loneliness is in the cove, it's been demick. and so it's only managing pressing problems, but no vision, but the router will most likely lead his forth cabinet is optimistic, the new government that took so long to build will bring change. although some worry it might not live long enough to fulfill its promises. step fasten elsie's 0 . the hake ah, arab cap host caught her, have been beaten to one in the semi finals by algeria cut. i nearly took the semi
