4:02 pm
a winter of severe illness and vaccinated for themselves, their families and the hospital will soon overwhelm. but there's good news if you'd rather than a 100 booster shot, you're protected from severe illness and death. so the u. s. centers for disease control is recommending americans choose the pfizer or medina vaccines instead of the johnson and johnson's job night says the single shot is less effective and in rare cases can lead to a fatal blood clots. but south africa says it'll then a $22000000.00 doses of the j and j vaccine of african countries over the course of the next year. well, mike, hannah joined the symbol from washington. d. c. the president saying, a winter that will be quite severe. how bad is it really across the country for the moment, mike? well, the statistics are exceedingly stock at the moment. there's been an increase of
4:03 pm
some 48 percent in the number of cases over the past month. the average is now in the region of 120000 new cases. the day the debt told to is rising at this particular stage. now with a massive increase in the terms numbers of fatalities. $1300.00 americans are dying each day. now this is a massive uptick in numbers. health experts warning that what is happening here is that the plague is being driven by a pair of barons both the delta and now the ami kron is prevalent throughout much of the united states in new york. for example, the rate of infection is doubling every 3 days. this is a statistic that we see in south africa in parts of europe, which had been the 1st to experience to cranberry. and so certainly deeply concerning and in terms of social impact, a number of states, particularly the democrat ones that we introduced at mosque mandates indoors.
4:04 pm
broadway, for example, a number of shows happening close because of cobra cases among the cost. so certainly as the country approaches the festive season, a very bleak outlook. mike earlier in the algebra day we spoke to south africa. so correspondent and gas talking about the mixed messaging coming from the white house about don't take the j. j vaccine. have the other ones sold very well, isn't it for the advanced western societies to say you have a choice of vaccine, but continents like africa, don't the do? does president biden realize what he has said of the impact that could have now on countries that only really have the choice of the j and j drap? well, president biden was reacting to guidance offered by the cdc, acting on advice. all experts have been investigating this to make this very clear, the cdc has recommended that if the 3 vaccines are available,
4:05 pm
then rather take the ones that are not johnson and johnson. the reason for this is that some cases of, from bosis have been associated very rarely, particularly among women. however, that being said to the cdc still says that johnson and johnson is an acceptable vaccine that it is not recommending it's not used. it is recommending that the other 2 vaccines should be preferred, but the question you raised this is a very important one. south africa, for example, has just the native a number of j and j vaccines to other parts of the continent. the continent, only some 7 percent of the whole of africa had been vaccinated. so this a very important point, and this is a matter for the world health organization to look at africa. and those and africa been arguing very strongly that they are being dealt with has 2nd class citizens using the, the crumbs from the table from the more advanced countries. this is another example
4:06 pm
that they are going to be pointing to. is that countries that do have an option will recommend against the j and j? yes, that is the vaccine that is increasingly available within africa. it's a major issue and one that is going to develop, overcoming days and weeks. and so my kind of force in washington dc. thanks mike. well, for me, the miller has more from johannesburg. experts in south africa saying that while they do recognize global daughter, that this recommendation may be premature in that south african daughter shows no adverse effects based on studies in south africa. we're currently health workers are taking part in a study around a booster shot of the j and j vaccine. and they say that we know adverse effects and there aren't any alarming signals to indicate that perhaps they should put j and j on hold. in fact, health experts say that in the coming days, they may make an announcement around allowing booster shots of join j and j to the
4:07 pm
general public. they've also said they've always known that there are certain risks around vaccines, not just j, a j, specifically blood clots, but these are very rare. and that essentially the benefits of the vaccine, even that one shot of j j outweighs the risk. and so still urging people to get back to the, to even with j and j while america, the cdc specifically may be saying, let's rather look at an alternative instead of using j and j. so for the moment, so the african saying all experts house authority saying that they are confident the data they have at hand and will continue using that vaccine in this country. be human rights council is calling for the establishment of an international commission to monitor alleged abuse as an e. c, a p u and says it's receiving credible reports at all sides. anything is conflict on committing severe human rights violations. up to 7000 people have been detained
4:08 pm
since last month under emergency measures. the nation wide state of emergency announced onto november is leading to significant human rights concerns on a very broad scale. no, to believe the state of emergency authorizes the arrest search and detention of anyone suspected of supporting that degree people's liberation front and the aroma liberation army designated paris groups in may 2021. this excessively broad provision has led to mass arrests and detentions of thousands of if your parents, including united nation stuff, and according to the committee to protect journalists at least 14 journalists, most of those arrested are ethnic to grants. let's bring in ravenna, shanda, san a. she's the specs woman at the you and human rights office enjoys you now via geneva. could have you from the program. how did you actually manage to collate all
4:09 pm
of this information? what access to the area? you might say, non ethiopians. it's a very difficult to get i know the question and have been severely damaged for human rights monitors and also for humanitarian access. particularly in the t great region, we're seeing, you know, 90 percent of the population in need and unable to receive monetary assistance. we collect information, what we've been in for a while, or we have courses across the country. so we do manage to collect information, but it's becoming more and more difficult to corroborate and verify it. ok, so the conflict in the area has been going on for a year. now. why does it take the you and have the all this long to suggest to commission or monitoring? no, in fact you may be aware we put out a report last month where we need. ringback the kinds of horrible allegations of human nations and of its special humanitarian. both committed by all parties to the
4:10 pm
european forces, the every tree and forces on the degree in forces. do we said that some of the physicians may amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity and we did call on the government? so it is always the duty initially to ensure that allegations of such violations are investigate. the government reacted positively. and of course, to, to carry out medication. now, it remains to be seen how much progress on this task force will make in the absence of progress by domestic mechanisms. we do believe that there is a need for an international my mission, the sunny. i appreciate your position and i appreciate your respects woman full of the human rights office, but it doesn't give us my question. why does it take a year to actually in the us have to actually push ethiopia to even consider a monitoring group. you should have been doing that 6 months ago. just to clarify
