9:03 pm
. all despite few cases in china and young has become the 3rd city to co, interlocked, earnest authorities maintain a 0 covert approach to the pandemic. and health facilities in the united states are feeling the strain of a micron with more than 140000 people. in hospital, that's the highest since the pandemic began. but we'll get more on those stories in just a moment. first, though dominic cane is in berlin with more on the situation across europe. on the face of earth, very bleak assessment. indeed, that's 50 percent of the population, depending on which numbers you go by and the you more than 400000000 people live here in the you around 700000000 around the you, it's periphery countries and that sort of thing. so we're talking potentially hundreds of millions of people that this individual from the world health organization is saying might well find themselves falling foul of the arm across
9:04 pm
variant of the corona virus in the course of the next couple of months. remember, it's deep winter here, right? now, and so all those conditions which militate in favor of further transmission are in place, it's cold outside people tend to congregate together inside if they're not wearing appropriate masks as we were hearing from the w h o. in another part of a statement made by the individual concerned that it's masking vaccination and that 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 cron managed to dislodge. the delta vary the preceding particularly dangerous variance of covey that had been running right. what like wildfire across
9:05 pm
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 on the corners really taken hold and is starting to really push delta to one side. 20000000 people in china are not confined to their homes. as a 3rd city is placed on to long term. katrina, you as more from don jo in hina province, and young's 5000000 residents have been ordered not to leave their homes until they get tested. the coven! 19 non essential. businesses have been closed and all private vehicles have been ordered off the roads. mass testing is underway in the city. now, the province of her nun where and young city is located is home to about 100000000 people. they've been facing an outbreak of primarily the delta variance since the beginning of the year in the city of and young. they've identified since the
9:06 pm
beginning of january at least $400.00 cases. but what sparked concern is this weekend was the discovery of at least 80 cases of the very infectious on the chron variance. now these cases have been linked to students who traveled from the port city a tinge in another city in china, which is under de facto locked down. now, authorities are very concerned about the 10 gin cases because this city borders bay, jing and officials there have promised to see loft hanjin 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 of trips made here in china as people travel home to see relatives for the
9:07 pm
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, china are affected by very severe locked downs or pandemic restrictions. even senate committee is meeting to hear the federal government take on how it's handling the pandemic. president joe biden has said he is confidence. the country is on the right track or representatives on the centers for disease control and top pos infectious disease expert anthony ferrucci. or among those speaking, u. s. is experiencing 8 massive surge in cove with 19 cases. with more than one and a half 1000000 new infections on monday. well, patty, co hain is following the story for us. she joins us live from outside a hospital in calverton, maryland,
9:08 pm
and patsy. let's start with what it's like. on the grounds, there are reports that hospitals are coming on to real pressure right now. there seems to be a real disconnect. you hear president joe biden coming out and saying, we believe we're on the right track. well, the american people, according to polls overwhelmingly, don't agree with him because of what they're seeing in their own lives. for example, this hospital several times in the recent weeks have had to basically put out the red line, say ambulances, you can't come here. we've got no more beds, it's happening, and i hospitals all over this country. one of the big concerns is testing, and this is the big criticism of the biden administration. they knew the holidays were coming up, they knew their own advice, was if you're going to gather with family, they don't normally see get tested before you move that. invent event indoors well in the run. after the holidays you couldn't find any tests. lines were stretching for blocks and blocked people away for hours. and even now the holidays are behind
9:09 pm
us. those tests, if you could find one, the labs are taking forever to get back to you maybe 56 days. and at that point doesn't really matter anymore. it's not very effective and the ad home tests which the administration really dismissed sending to people. now that they say they're going to. but right now when people are getting sick in record numbers, you cannot find at home tests anywhere. and then there's the issue of the quarantine. the cdc changed the guidelines that had been 10 days. if your test positive stay home. they moved to 5 at this hearing in capitol hill, they admitted that part of the reason was because hospital officials like the ones behind us said look, if you keep it 10 days, we're not going to have staff to actually take care of all of these sick people now they went on to say that the science also backs that move, but senators, don't seem all that impressed. you shouldn't quarantine guidance because too many people would be out of work. was that because of science or was it because you now know that locked down shut down, some school closures come with
9:10 pm
a significant downside impact. you. ashley american people to trust you quite frankly, you've lost their trust a surpass. what happens next? well, what happens next is the by demonstration that what this hearing is focusing on is what they're going to do. and they say, look, we're getting some of those treatments. there are, those are going to be out and they set through a number of 20000. that's not going to do anything for the number of people that are sick. 20000. they talked about testing that they're going to be able to, americans will to go online and order a test to be sent to their house through the postal service. they said they hoped to have that in place, starting at the end of this month, but the cases are soaring every single day. and so pretty much everything the administration said is a long term fix. while most of the analysis says this is going to continue to be just horrible throughout february, throughout the rest of january through february. it might level off in march just
9:11 pm
about the time that all of those programs that they promised are actually coming into effect. now there was one thing at this hearing that doctor anthony found the chief medical adviser to the president said they've already started spending money trying to come up with the vaccine that works with future variance because that's the big concern. the concern is that a variant is going to come out and it won't matter that you've been vaccinated. so he said they've already started spending money at different universities, different facilities, trying to come up with a vaccine that would handle any possible variant that comes our way. he didn't give any sort of timeline as to what a, when we might see some sort of research on that. but he did say that it is a high priority. so a lot of pushback from us senators from both political parties, bite administration, really disputing what the president thinks is a heading in the right direction when, when you look around, it doesn't really feel like that. okay, petticoat they're bring us up to date from outside hospital in calverton, maryland's fancy. thank you. well, dr. krishna with i am a kumar is

a director at the global health innovations center. he says the u. s. is that a crisis moments and we're 2 years into this and demick and we're asking the same help workforce that's been struggling for 2 years to continue and not just continue, but actually to do even more with even fewer resources. we should remember that we have access to lots of axioms and other types of intervention, but we're still relatively low compared to other countries in our vaccination rates, only 63 percent of the entire population is fully vaccinated. here in the us and less than 40 percent have boosters, so we have susceptibility beyond other countries in terms of the level of infection . we've also seen now that the rates of infection are rising significantly, and we're not seeing the same level of b coupling as we saw. we have some south africa between the cases rising and the
9:13 pm
hospitalizations. we should keep in mind that the best estimate we have is perhaps up to 40 percent of people in the hospital with cobit or their width. cobit as opposed to being there for coed, but they're still using a lot of resources. we're still having to make sure that health workers are protected and that patients are protected as well. so we've got a long way to go here. and even though we've broken the record with 145000 people in the hospital in the us with cobra, that number could double in the next 2 to 4 weeks. britton's prime minister is facing renewed calls. the stat done. after you revelations about a garden party held during mark time, post, johnson has repeatedly denied breaking locked and rules, but a leak. t mail reportedly shows his private secretary invited around 100 government staff to the gathering in 2020. the dean baba is more how many garden parties is a garden party too far? this image shows boris johnson at

the 2020 election, republican controlled state legislatures in 19 states have passed 34 new laws restricting access to voting. there is an assault underway on the very structure of our elections in our democracy that is carrying forward to assault that we saw on january 6th of 2021. i'm united states capital president joe biden called out trump in his january 6th speech. a former president and a supporters have decided the only way for them to win is to suppress your vote and subvert our elections. for example, in the swing state of georgia, new laws make it harder to request mail balance, bar election officials from sending applications for those ballots, restrict the number of dropboxes and polling places in heavily democratic urban areas. and make it a crime to offer food or water to people waiting in long lines for
9:34 pm
a chance to vote. states including georgia have gone further passing laws that would undermine non partisan election agencies and officials, and even allow partisan officials to reject election results entirely. battled senate democratic party leader charles schumer says he will introduce 2 bills this month. that would allow the justice department to undo state restrictive voting laws. republicans have blocked those efforts before using the parliamentary maneuver called the filibuster, which requires a super majority of votes in the senate, if not a boat in rockville, it's a sprawling sweeping takeover of our democracy. schumer says if the republicans block it again, he will try to eliminate the filibuster for voting rights legislation. if this continues, the only option left for democrats is to explore and propose reasonable fixes to re store the senate. so we can get these critical pieces of legislation passed into
9:35 pm
law. trump's big lie about the 2020 election amplified by right wing media has had an impact. in january of 2021. a poll showed that 59 percent of americans that they trusted, that elections represented the will of the american people by september of last year, the majority had slept to where now just a 2 percent shade they do not jot is a threat to the very fabric of our democracy, another recent whole shows 34 percent of americans believe acts of violence against the government are sometimes justified. 2022 will be a crucial year with congressional elections in november. trauma will hold his 1st rally of the year in arizona this week. and former 1st lady, michelle obama announced her voting rights organisation will lead a drive to register 1000000 new votes. this year, rob reynolds al jazeera will last year,
9:36 pm
19 states pass new laws that make it harder for people to vote since, according to report, by the brand incentive for justice, georgia and texas were among them 7 states and post tougher identification requirements to cast ballots. while others shows in the window to apply for male in votes. well, because thinking i with mark morrell, he's the ceo of the national urban league and joined us from atlanta in georgia. one of those states that is making it harder for people to vote at mr. maria, which i appreciate you taking the time to talk to us, especially since you're on the way i see that speech by the president. but just start off by explaining to our international audience. why are states making it harder for people to votes? well, thank you for having me. i think many states are, are motivated by a political and partisan outcomes. so many of the states that are doing
9:37 pm
this were states that have republican majorities in their state legislatures. this is where this is happening. it is strictly on a partisan basis that these if you will, voters suppression laws and jerry, man did redistricting clients are taking place. it's at the hands of republican state legislatures, our demand, our call, our asportation is for the congress, which they have the power to do under our constitution, to step in and create standards around elections as well as to her. and that laws that protect racially motivated, discriminatory voting laws from taking place. so we think our congress can fix this problem if they have the will to do as i think the president
9:38 pm
will call on them to do the day. and that is to pass corrective legislation in the form of to big slit for the problem with this. because if you look at it from an intellectual perspective, it's a no brainer. because if you want to protect democracy, you put these safeguards in place. and yet that seems to be an active attempt in the united states to weaken and undermine democracy. it just won't exactly as a st. here. are you worried that the u. s. a. look, regrettably, i think you are right. there is an asked in the united states to undermine democracy. it's targeted at making it more difficult for black voters. brown or latino voters, younger voters, and disabled voters from exercising their right. well, let me give you the best example. in 2020, in the united states,
9:39 pm
70 percent of the people who voted voted by mail. or they utilized early voting methods to vote these laws, these laws that are being proposed would make that illegal in many states. so they're gone right at the heart of those provisions that made it easier for people to vote and gave us the highest voter turnout in modern american history. so we've got to put the current texts around this and recognize that we will fight as hard as we can to protect american democracy. and that means protecting the right to vote for every one that you say we will fight. but there have been divisions in precedent buys and supports us if they're not with some activists, are threatened to boycott or in the car the way she what, why is there are no do. there are no divisions whatsoever in the outcome. there's
9:40 pm
