pandemic by giving the virus more opportunities to spread and mutate. the global pride, it might be to support all countries to reach the 40 percent target as quickly as possible. and the 70 percent target by the middle of this year. no country can boost its way out of the pandemic and boosters cannot be seen as a ticket to go ahead with the plan celebrations without the need for other precautions. while in israel, the government panel has recommended a force. both of the cove at 1900 vaccine is needed for people over the age of 60. if this happens, israel could become the 1st country to roll out a 4th job. harry full set reports from western loosely israel was an early leader in mass, vaccinations against covey. 19 the 1st country to go for the booster shot. now it's

10:04 pm
like much in the world's response to the sudden breakthrough of on the chrome. this is a decision that's being made without the full information. one small is there any study into the effect of a full vaccination? has yet to report its results. nonetheless, it's been decided that this is an opportunity, the greater protection that's worth going for. one public health experts says with the efficacy untested promoting a 4th injection could add to the mistrust of those hesitant to be vaccinated. so we are doing something that is unusual reverse epidemiology, we 1st duty intervention, then we studied it. it's not done in preventive medicine. you may do it in severely sick patients that you have nothing as to offer and you say ok, we need to try something. it's make sense, but you don't do it with preventive medicines within the government panel though, the counter arguments when the day 86 percent of its members voted in favor of the additional booster, not for the 1st time the world will be watching israel's results. hurry full,

10:07 pm
a lot of the consider futility about vaccination and people have been saying or thought. so they needed to tell more like reassuring that dyslexia we have put in that they've been cutting out before the vaccines distributed and admit that on they didn't. so the public display or the public because all of this expired vaccine is just to show people that the health authorities were on top of me. again, i were making sure that whatever vaccine were given to people were actually of good quality will be on the con outbreak in south africa. squatting province appears to have passed its peak about a month after it was 1st discovered there. the number of new daily cases is now falling, although scientists say that there could be that that could be down to lower levels of testing ahead of the holiday period. but data collected by the south african

10:10 pm
a $4500.00 per business. he says it's just a drop in the ocean. leah agrees and says they also need more guidance. tell us what to do, what is actually happening. if we're going to close and if restaurants are going to close, they need to let us know or so that we can plan as well rather than just saying, okay, we're going to make an announcement on the 27th because it's, it's been a lot of rumors while england tries to boost its way out on the chrome clutches, changes are being made to y salacious rules. the ease, crippling star shortage is across many businesses and services most vaccinated and vaccinated. people can now enter the 10 day isolation, 3 days early. if they test negative 2 days running, as long as they test the negative through lateral flow tests on day 6 and they 7 take 24 hours apart, they can leave isolation. if you are someone that work to their care, home or the chest even, you can return to work. but of course,
10:11 pm
those people will also be following the rules that affect by their workplace is where they test regulate. meanwhile, the u. k is infection rate push 3100000 a day for the 1st time on wednesday. the country isn't tacit. microns clutches yet by any means. reach helen's out 0 london. u. s. health regulations have given the green light to the 1st the anti viral pill to treat cove at 19 americans age 12 and older will be able to take 5 years back slowly the tablet, the friend off the worst effects of the virus studies showed that it reduce the risk of hospitalization and the best among patients with the most severe symptoms by nearly 90 percent or previously authorized drugs against the disease require nivea or an injection while i white house corresponding kimberly. how could join us live now from washington d. c. so what more do we know about the santi viral pill?
10:12 pm
well, we know that it is going to give a lot of people who are in high risk categories, say for obesity or heart disease. a lot of hope. the secret to this antiviral pill that's been approved under emergency authorization from the food and drug administration is getting it to the patient quickly after diagnosis. that's what is most effective. we understand it's a 5 day course. you take 3 pills a day. i and this is a lot cheaper and very effective. the public health experts are saying, and this is a really a boost because what it will do is it will allow for doctors to treat patients who may not have access to some of the more expensive therapeutics that can only be administered in a hospital through the intravenous process, so this is hopeful for the global fight against co good 19, because again, there are some people that are hard to reach and it may not even be vaccinated that are now going to be offered hope. now that the catch and all of this is that
10:13 pm
there's a limited supply right now. we know there are just a 180000 courses of this that are available and a good portion of that almost half will be going to patients in the united states. we know that there are contracts underway with the u. k. government with australians, government as well as the united states for more to be made. but the problem is also the timeline. it takes about 9 months to reduce these medications. but what we're hearing it from the drug maker, pfizer, is they're hoping to cut that timeline in half by next year. we should also point out there is another antiviral pill that is being manufactured by merck. that is expected to get emergency authorization very soon, but it does not have the same effectiveness just about 30 percent reduction in severe cases of coven, 19 and contrast to the 90 percent effectiveness by the pill produced by pfizer. so certainly this is hopeful. it's going to allow for another layer of treatments,
10:14 pm
especially for those hard to reach areas around the globe. but again, right now the excitement is a little bit contained, given the fact that there is such a limited supply. and that timeline will be in place for the foreseeable future. absolutely. kimberly help you with the latest from washington d. c. kimberly. thank you. the i desperately needed aid will soon be sent to afghan histone after the united nations security council voted to allow a sanctions exemption. it means governments and agencies can send money and goods to the country for the 1st time since the taliban took over. international aid made up about 75 percent of the previous government's budget, but that was suspended in august, leaving the economy on the brink of collapse. the central banks overseas assets of nearly $10000000000.00 were also frozen. meaning that state employees haven't been
10:15 pm

10:16 pm
the sanctions. less with the united states said that it agencies had a right to be concerned and that by passing this resolution, it would clarify that there are in fact exemptions for humanitarian aid. through this resolution, we have proposed to day the security council can decide to exempt humanitarian assistance to enable more life saving, aid and other activities to meet basic human needs of the people of afghanistan. the resolution was welcomed by the humanitarian chief here at the united nations. martin griffith. he said he's been calling for the counsel to do something to help the situation there. he said this will allow the un to bring in much needed aid according to plans that they've been developing a just when they most crucially need it. the un says it's been forced to reduce food rations for millions of people in yemen due to a lack of funding. it's world food program agency says there will be serious
