10:10 pm
of the look down means children in uganda will once again get to experience one of the most important parts of their lives. education schools. there have been closed since march 2020. shortly after the 1st case of coven 19 was confirmed on the african continent. some classes reopened in february last year, but shut down again 4 months later as the country faced a surgeon infections. analysts say the last 2 years have had a devastating effect on children and young people wise girls had you're me and closed will this long is a question that bond lives. nobody can ask even begun to self convert. it's been completely, there has been huge increase in a child sex moist molestations. ah, but see clearly in a greg lucy's or across the country reported. i had the been, she had cases, also, child marriages, balls, disclose, and cinemas are also due to open up in the coming weeks. much to the relief of
10:11 pm
people who work in the countries entertainment industry, a wasted way too long. acting like we're scared of it in tons of the nozzles on them but. busy yeah, absolutely, we're ready to live with. doesn't look like it's about to go away. ugandans of stuff. i don't know. the pastry us. rather than get you me nice. i'm quite of misdirecting will stay open. you going to impose some of the most strict and lengthy rules in the world to contain the virus. since the pandemic began, it's reported a 137000 cases of corona virus, and more than 3000 deaths. the president says a high vaccination rate means it's now safe for the country to reopen. but during his public address, he added that some measures could be reinstated if case his rise steadily. victoria gate and be al jazeera. let's uganda. meanwhile, in the u. k, as schools get ready to reopen after the christmas break, new measures have been announced to try to limit the spread of coven 90. the on the
10:12 pm
can vary and to seen record daily cases of the we can put on pressure on sector is like education and health care. nothing bad by reports from london with the return to school just days away. many a wondering how they'll be able to stay open in the week to the 27th of december, an estimated one in 22nd, re pupils in england. that those aged over 11 had corona virus. the rise in cases is driven by the more transmissible ami con variant. now, secondary pupils in england will have to wear a face covering, at least for the next 3 weeks. the education watched or offset says go be no inspections in the 1st week of term was 2 thirds of adults have been boosted. obviously children have not. and so that's why we brought in some additional measures within schools at we're clear making available things like ventilators and extra, some 1000 ventilation units for those classrooms where it's difficult and to ventilate,
10:13 pm
that's largely backed by school leaders. biggest threats education in 6th grade is not having those members of stamps teach young. and if the way we try and keep our schools more reassuringly safe, history place to bring this route changes to austin is to improve ventilation. then that will be definitely a process. i, i think the government's clearly worried about staff absences due to covet 19 it's also bosses in the public sector to plan for up to a quarter of the workforce being off. it's relied heavily on an extensive program of boosters or 3rd vaccination doses to drive down corona virus rates, but that's being outpaced by omicron. one of the key tools for keeping the economy going regular testing isn't working properly. there have been severe shortages of all types of tests including the rapid lateral flow test problems in accessing of it. 900 tests are increasing concerns in important sectors such as the health service. the main doctors union here says its members are having trouble getting
10:14 pm
tests, which means they're worried that they're infecting that patient. the u. k. government insists more restrictions must be a last resort. but with hospitals warning coverage, placing events pressures on them, experts say the only alternative is changes in behavior be fully immunized. take your boosters and we're a good quality mosque, an f b to mosque and avoid those indoor closed, poorly ventilated places. if we were to exercise all of those measures ourselves, we by our on ethics, would bring down the case numbers. for now, the only certainty is that army cons, having an impact on workplace is around the country. what isn't that? how well the measures in place will deal with it. the d baba al jazeera london, a fire that's devastated south africa, the parliament building in cape town is still burning. it broke out early in the morning and has extensively damaged the national assembly chamber with
10:15 pm
a parliamentary and nobody has been injured. a man has been arrested and is due to appear in court on tuesday. we need to go to the parking lot deeper into how this type of event can take place and what measure we will need to take going forward. but for now, i think, wishing to be grateful that the national assembly parliament has been raised to ashes and to the flaw, gillian wolf has more now from outside the national assembly building. well, the situation is very fluid here, around 6 am, this morning about 70 firefighters were rushed to the scene within a matter of minutes to combat this fire. now, parts of the old assembly building had been completely burned down and now the fire has spread over to the national assembly, which is behind me. as you can see around me, there are
10:16 pm
a lot of fire crews and police officers still on the scene as well. as medics, luckily no one was hurt because it happened so early on a sunday morning. no one was in the building at the time. but the reason why this is important to south africa and is this building represents democracy to south africa. a lot of politicians come here to debate. this is where the president hold his state of the nation address. and it's also a building where nelson mandela was elected as the 1st black president of south africa. so it's really a place where you see democracy in action. so it's also a place where a lot of tourists come to, to honor this building and really see how democracy unfold in south africa. so to come, 2 years after the best of iran's leading general professors in baghdad gathered around the remains of his car and the food prices at the highest level. in nearly a decade we look at how people in serbia are struggling to make ends meet.
