7:04 pm
sort of thing in the absence of those. and it's very clear that the world health organization is making pretty difficult and dangerous suggestions here. hundreds of millions of people might find themselves as a se falling fall of on the kron in this deep winter phase of 2022. that's the really fundamental question here, right now has only chron managed to dislodge. the delta vary the preceding particularly dangerous variance of covey that had been running right. what like wildfire across the continent, here in germany, the latest estimate suggests somewhere around 50 percent of all cases are of ami chrome. but in other parts of the continent then army corners really taken hold and is starting to really push delta to one side. chain to china and i were 20000000 people are now confined to their homes. as a 3rd city is placed under lock time christian, he has more from dan, joe,

7:06 pm
gene and officials there have promised to see loft hinge in order to protect the capital. all leaders in china are under enormous pressure to prevent any infections from reaching the capital baiting before the beginning of the beijing winter olympics, which opens on february the 4th. and this is a very dangerous time for the virus here in china. we're just heading into the lunar new year period or chinese new year, where typically many people travel across the country. there are hundreds of millions, true of trips made here in china as people travel home to see relatives for the most important public holiday. here in the country now officials have discouraged travel this chinese new year because of these outbreaks and officials are saying that they are staunchly committed to maintaining time as 0 tolerance approach to the pandemic. despite the fact that already 20000000 people here in china are affected by very severe locked downs or pandemic restrictions was he heard earlier
7:07 pm
more americans than ever before or in hospital with corona virus. on point 3000000 cases were registered on monday that so world wides daily records. the volume of infections is overwhelming. hospitals administrators say many doctors and nurses are infected with the virus to doctor patrick tang is a microbiologist and division chief of pathology, et cetera medicine. here in doha, he says, there are several important factors to look at. so severe and outbreak is whether we should be concerned or not depend on each person's individual, immunity, data and bomb. our ability to, to be or to be that well at what's happening within the country. so if you're in a country that has high vaccination rate and probably would hit by a large wave of delta, an infection in the within time, then there be a high level of immunity in that population. and they are going to have less effect on population. whereas if you were in
7:08 pm
a country that had low base the vaccination and wasn't at all hard by the previous wave in action, then an over conway would cause a lot of problems for such a population. we're seeing similar things in many places around the world. the better on the crime is virtually unstoppable without having significant restriction by the side in economy that type of restrictions that, that are being used in places like china, from this current wave up in action, looks like it might be the last bure way of cobit 19 because one thing is that the virus is always going to develop new bearing over time. some of them might eat them or some of them might be mild. but, but at the same time, the world is also building up in unity from vaccination as well with from all of
7:09 pm
the different ways of infection. so i think our community that going to developed around the world will protect us from future, waive any barriers that come and unlikely that there will be another severe wave of 19 after this month. britton's prime minister is facing renewed coals for his resignation. after new revelations, a better garden party held during lockton for his johnson has repeatedly denied freaking locked and rules. that elite e mail is reported to show that his private secretary invited around $100.00 government staff to a party in opposition. labor party says johnston must go because of his repeated lies. nadine barbara is in london and says this is a bad look for it and in street. it's about trust. sit about consistency and it's about truth telling and it really is remarkable. if you see the contents of the email which has been published by british broadcasts during the last 24 hours and
7:10 pm
the contents of which the government have not really complained about or rejected, let me just read you a little bit of it. we thought it would be nice to make the most of the lovely weather and have some socially distant drinks in the number 10 garden this evening . bring your own booze. that was from a close sir. advisor of prime minister boris johnson on the 20th of may 2020. during the 1st lock down that same day his coach or secretary oliver dowden had gone on television and told the british public that apart from their own household, they shouldn't mix with any body except for one person in and outdoor setting. the police issued similar guidelines that day and so really the question is, what did they think they were doing? certain re verify or witnesses who've come forward to say that bars. johnston attended that gathering in the garden at 10 downing street. and
7:11 pm
the fact that number 10 hovel deny eat the contents of the email that it went to a 100 stars. all reports, but dozens of people actually attended along with bars johnson and his then fiance kerry really is causing a lot of her eyebrow raising at the moment. the u. n. is launching its largest ever humanitarian appeal for a single country. it needs more than $5000000000.00 in aid for afghanistan. one half the population ran 23000000 people faces acute hunger. the humans humanitarian chief says he's most worries at the welfare of children. some more to his unicef chief of communications in afghanistan, she says winter temperatures have added to the crisis. the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world, the scale of suffering is quite unprecedented. and as you see,

7:15 pm
don't expect rain this time to years a little bit too early. it came from the disturbance that brought all that snow to northern pakistan and india that's gone now. indeed, the weather is settled here. daily's air quality is bound to decrease once more as the temperature slowly rises, but the skies settle. oh, the weather sponsored by casara ways, we're told technology can help tackle the spread of coated 19, but all tech solutions, the best solutions you're starting, something that seems like it's aimed in public health, very quickly becomes about measuring people what data is being collected. where is it being for it? poly re looks at the limits of time and the potential of other creative ways to do with the issues we face truck it when tech tools go viral. episode 3 of all hailed are locked down on al jazeera. ah

7:19 pm
security without ukraine present. this instead, a chance to air respective concerns and get a measure of russia's true intent with tensions at their highest since the end of the cold war points of dispute between russia and the u. s. are plentiful, but ukraine is perhaps most urgent. russia has supported a separatist conflict there for 8 years now, and the presence of a 100000 russian troops on ukraine's border threatens a new war in europe. russia wants legal guarantees that ukraine will never become a member of the nato alliance. a demand flatly rejected by western allies. on monday, ukraine's deputy prime minister met the nato secretary general talks with russia will widen on wednesday to include nato members in brussels. and then the o. s. c. e. in vienna, on thursday. what russia is doing is trying to impose its agenda instead of returning to the negotiation table. and we have that very clearly,

7:21 pm
conflict. the correctness president daniel ortega has been sworn in for a 4th term. the you are sandy, you say his election was a sham. and on the same day as his inauguration, they unveiled new sanctions against dozens of officials and members of his family or latin america editor alysia human reports. this was daniel ortega's 4th consecutive swearing in ceremony flanked by his wife, reciting moody you his vice president. he vowed to improve conditions in nicaragua, the 2nd poor's country in the americas. after haiti rest go home resort. we are here again with a clean slate, to build peace, to assure that nicaraguans have a dignified life to eradicate property in this country with sovereignty and freedom . the president of cuba and venezuela were there and also delegations from iran,

7:23 pm
if they demonstrate that the international community realizes what top in nicaragua, and thus why it imposes sanctions. they have a moral effect, a kind of consolation, but in practical terms, they'll have little impact. one or take a celebrated his latest inauguration, some 170 political prisoners languished in what human rights advocates describe as cruel and inhumane conditions around me. one of them is lawyer rocket reyes, not every lesson but we are in like a thing when communist or my husband is losing his memory and he's in a deep depression after spending more than a 100 days in a punishment. isolation cell that he can't remember the names or faces of our daughters or girlfriend ortega made no mention of his pre election promised to initiate a dialogue with his political opponents. that may explain why most nicaraguans, whom al jazeera consulted about yoga operation, preferred to say nothing at all. to see a newman al jazeera wildfires,

7:27 pm
cautious excitement. it's significant because we don't have a source of human organ replace. ah, of sufficient numbers to answer demand. ah, and not only to man, but a timely manner. but for now, david bennett and his family have been thrown a lifeline. barbara and gave her al to sarah a poet in civil rights activist has become the 1st blank woman to be features on a us quarter coin. maya angelou was 86 when she died in 2014. her coin is the 1st in the american women quarters program, which will include other prominent women in u. s. history. foods has become the lisa export from south korea to see rise in popularity. it's cinema and music industries have already swept the globe. but now the pandemic is pushing sales of korean instant noodles,
