1:11 pm
day critical care directors are now talking with medical emphasis about which patients to lead into their views and which patients they have to allow to basically die because they're just simply is not room in ideas to absorb all of the critically ill patients. right now you have been leaders in brussels or talking about the threat posed by the new variance from says it's now banning all non essential travel from the united kingdom across africa. both the dell turned on the constrains have driven up the cases by 83 percent of the fosters surge anyway in the world this year. meanwhile, the african continent trails as the lowest vaccinated region in the world. as you can see from the lighter colors, it's struggling to get doses into countries through the un kovak scheme. there's also the issue of vaccines hesitancy, was some people choosing not to get the shots for a variety of reasons?
1:12 pm
well, nicholas sac, joys me now live from dot com in senegal. and of course very numbers on the continents are worrying medics including where you are. that's right. it's worrying because right now here in senegal, we've seen our 1st case of our micron. but this could just be the tip of the iceberg. it might be many more that are going under texted. and many more that just are simply are not going to get tested or not making their way to their health centers. there's the added issue of people not wanting to get vaccinated. i mean, the fear of the vaccine is spreading faster than this new variant, and this is having that disastrous consequences. while a couple of weeks ago, we saw heads of states, the south african president, president, senate go and others calling for more vaccines to be delivered in africa. the biggest challenge yet is to get those vaccines into those arms. there's this spread
1:13 pm
of miss information and we met a doctor who works at an emergency ward and set a goal here who does not want to get back to needed. doesn't believe in the vaccine . simply because the patent that these pharmaceutical companies, the producers have, has not been waived. he says, as long as there's no vaccine produced in africa, i'm not going to get vaccinated. that's as a result. there's more than $200000.00 doses here in senegal, that have been destroyed, $200000.00 more that are going to expire by the end of the month and a 1000000 in the year that has been destroyed already. so nicholas says you touched the vaccine hesitancy. there's also the issue of the distance people have to travel to try and get the vaccine and also the availability of the vaccine. it's a total order for the government where you all want me, what i'm actually doing physically to distribute what they have got i mean there's different measures in place depending on which countries you want to see light barrier, for instance, they just made it mandatory for government officials or government workers to have
1:14 pm
the vaccine to in order to work now measures like this in countries where there has been protest in the past against the measures that were in place to stop the spread of a virus. well, that's going to be difficult. there's a lot of the fall out of the economic fall out of the coven pandemic has had, has build this mistrust between the people and government officials. and as you mentioned, getting those vials that was doses that have to be kept at that below 0 temperatures . in countries where it's 40 degrees celsius and remote areas is a challenge in areas where already health workers are dealing with other outbreaks . here in senegal, the ministry of health has started a polio vaccination campaign. remember, polio vaccine is, it's been out since 1950, but many people are still not vaccinated against polio. there is in kenya, an influenza a outbreak at the moment. so cove, it is one of many viruses or many academics,
1:15 pm
or infectious diseases that people here have to deal with. and that's the biggest challenge for the government, not just getting the vaccines, but getting those doses to people that need it the most. so they can come forth and talk to thanks so much for the update. let's join natasha butler correspondent in paris. natasha. it's just begin with this breaking news coming out from paris about the relationship puts a little bit more strain with the u. k. yes, that's right. the french government has announced a new restrictions on travel between the u. k and france. effectively, all non essential travel will be found from saturday. now, people, french citizens who are in the u. k will be able to return for frauds, but there will be extra restrictions on their movements. all people will have to have a p, c, r test before they leave the u. k. and then again, once they arrive in france and then they'll have to corn scene and the length of

1:17 pm
yes, once again, covert overshadowing another use summit in brussels. it is the story that a you leaders will be really focusing on because what they are looking at is the situation in which many countries across the block are seeing new infection cases, riser daily. in some countries, those infections are simply soaring also, or the owner con variance has been detected in many countries of the you leaders are aware that that will be spreading fast. they are concerned the e commission head this live on the lion says that she expects that new variant to be the dominant one in the block. in mid january, we're ready seeing hospitals in some countries are putting into place emergency measures cancelling non essential surgery in order to free up hospital bed. so what a leaders will be looking at doing is really trying to see how they can curb this spread, particularly as we go into this winter break, they'll be looking at imposing paps more restrictions suggesting more restrictions
1:18 pm

1:20 pm
a year has it been in general terms before we look specifically at a few examples from the i says it's africa. the situation never goes pretty much as it sat in the rest of the world. we've seen many waves of journalists, arrests, writing, age lee, many journalists being detained in the future in life, getting killed as well as 6 in africa. 2 of them were killed in somalia, 2 of them were killed in d r. c. and 2 of them were killed in burke and i. so and dog 3 regents really that are the most dangerous places for a generalized, a natural gas b, a guy with the situation very poor in terms of security in somalia, for example, a press redone that sold the non existent in g, b, g, or etc. and the situation is your p r, as you mentioned, slightly deteriorating, including for generalized grant likes as well. region is many, a rest of general is just getting killed and the south region as well. where the
1:21 pm
situation is very of for journalism is very stepping back and the security situation is to targeting as well. and just tremendous consequences on the, on the journalist us, let's just focus it on the theory to them. because conflict between the government and the northern to guy region has dominated the news over year now, with the area often cut off by government full series. so how accurate is the story coming out from the country? well, it's, it's very hard to read it. you can say that there are still awfully a few journalists were here to, to report. but how long the situation will. ready last every day, that's the question we can ask ourselves today we've, we've missed over to years with arrest a chip. yeah. a few journalists are still being detained. media outlets have been suspended the correspondence of the new york times as been kicked out of the country, which was unprecedented, says be to office in that 2018 there is this communication block out in the
