7:02 am
prices is now being felt at every gas station and in every grocery store. i just think for a little more careful, i notice it in almost every product. fruits vegetables, which we buy a lot of jelly products. i can't really see anywhere that the prices have gone down, but they've gone up bottlenecks in the supply chains of distributors all the primary reason and these, and turn the direct result of stopping shortages as the pandemic continues to rage world wide. at the stage, though, the head of the federal reserve insists there's no need for panic. that this is a temporary situation. we will use our tools to support the economy and a strong labor market and to prevent higher inflation from becoming entrenched. it's a similar message coming from the white house, which points to
7:03 am
a dropping unemployment rate as evidence that economic recovery is underway and is adamant that the supply chain issue will be resolved. we are well positioned to attack the challenges of prices and cos had on, and that's exactly what the president i and this administration are doing. but republicans continue to blame stimulus measures for overheating the economy. one thing is clear, it's impossible to predict the ongoing economic impact of the ami kron varian surge, which the nation continues to face. i don't believe we've seen that peak yet here in the united states. the rise in price increases reflect to harsh reality that in the pandemic, it's not just people who get sick, but the economy as well. my cana auto 0 washington. the world health organization says of a 15000000 people contracted coven 19 during the past week, which is higher than an any time during the entire pandemic. it's more than 50
7:04 am
percent up on the previous 7 days. and the double h o says the number of deaths is also rising. let's be clear. why or me wrong cause less severe dis, is done. delta. it remains a dangerous virus, particularly for those who are unvaccinated. almost $50000.00 a week is $50000.00 does too many. when all the white house is announced, measures to expand testing the cove at 19 in schools. students, parents and teachers have struggled with blended learning, which has become the norm since the pandemic began in chicago, a standoff between teachers unions on the government. so classes suspended, oper just a week, john hand from the pulse. chicago's on again off again, schools are once again back in session. across the us. many public schools began the new year in the classroom with students and staff alike braving the omicron
7:05 am
outbreak. but here schools delivered a lesson in whiplash. we just never know from day to day, week to week, how things are going to be and, and it doesn't allow our children to feel, feel secure, safe, and what's going on. chicago's public schools opened then closed for a week as union teachers battled mayor laurie lightfoot over covert safety measures voting then opened again on wednesday for dave and andrea roofing 2 years of cove. it has taken its toll, my 8 year old. ah, she's because she's missed out so much. she now she has anxieties about going to school and this past week in particular, when there is i school closure. we didn't know what was happening day to day. there was, there were a lot of emotional breakdowns here and elsewhere. a big enough outbreak will still shutter individual schools with you as hitting a new record for daily coven cases this week. the biden administration and out new measures to keep classrooms open. they include dramatically expanding testing for
7:06 am
the virus in schools. the additional tests would improve access to an increasingly scarce commodity. these $10000000.00 additional test available each month will allow schools to double the volume of testing they were performing. in november, the president is clear, the nation schools can and should be open. even so keeping schools open remains a challenge. in new york city, students walked out in protest of what they called unsafe covered conditions in fort worth, texas. so many teachers are sick or quarantine that classrooms are being combined everywhere. it seems education in the covey or a remains of struggle. but in chicago, the battle between the city and union teachers has made the classroom an emotional rollercoaster. parents just being on the side line, not having a voice, just our fate in the hands of others has been incredibly frustrating. and to be honest, it's probably going to be the reason why we leave chicago. the role things might
7:07 am
find a school district with a more predictable schedule. but with cove entering its 3rd year more contagious than ever. for the foreseeable future, there's no escaping the global pandemic. john henderson, l g 0, chicago. the british promised as facing growing cause for his resignation after apologizing to the nation for attending a party at his official london residence during the height of the lockdown in 2020 . at the time the government was enforcing strict measures confining millions of people to their homes. under simmons has a story. ah, horace johnson has never been under such pressure from his own party, the opposition of the people who elected him. he set out to try to defend himself. the key question, did he attend a party for around 40 guests in his back garden that appears to a breached cove at restrictions? first, he tried to address the british people. but i want to apologize. i know the rage,
7:08 am
they feel with me over the government i lead when they think that in done in street itself, the rules are not being properly followed by the people who make the rules. and when i went into that garden, just after 6 on the 20th of may, 2020, to frank groups of stock before going back into my office 25 minutes later to continue working. i believed implicitly that this was a work event. with hindsight, i should have sent everyone back inside of the months of deceit and deception. so pathetic spectacle of a man who's run out of road, his defense, his defense that he didn't realize he was at a party. ha, it is so ridiculous that is actually offensive to the pretty
7:09 am
ha with the whole country was locked down. he was posting boozy policies in town, express se, now going to take a decent thing and resign. johnson didn't say yes or no, i want her. i want to repeat that, i thought it was a, a work event and apologizing again and telling opposition leader kissed alma he should wait for the results of an inquiry into revelations of several porters in downing street in whitehall. i regret very much that we did not do things differently or that evening. stammer repeatedly rounded on johnson, the party's over prime minister. the only question is, will the british public kick him out, police party kick him out, or will he do the decent thing and reside in johnson's constituency in north west london, many who watched wouldn't accept his apology. i'm angry and i
7:10 am
just think he's a man that doesn't take responsibility for what he's done. civic, who bore with laughing firm. it's to be expect. vega me is bound to come back with with, with something what, whether or not it's true or noise. it's probably not 3, this crisis is being called part again by the media. johnson is trying to write it out. much rest though with the outcome of the inquiry into downing street and whitehall parties and what the police do about the latest revelation. with more rest though, on whether the conservative party decides johnson is now a liability and has to go. and through simmons, al jazeera a lawsuit against britons, prince andrews moving forward in the us after judge rejected efforts to dismiss a sex abuse claim. virginia phrase says she was 17 years old when she was traffic to have sex with the u. k. royal and other men, prince andrew's lawyers tried to have the case thrown out, citing her 2009 deal she signed with convicted sex offender,
7:11 am
jeffrey epstein. the prince has consistently denied the claims. gabe lozano is in new york, with a civil lawsuit is underway. what appears that this is going to a trial, and the trial will be towards the end of this year, assuming, and this is a big assumption here. the prince, andrew and his lawyers decide not to settle out of court. that could very be a very real possibility at this point, but assuming that does not happen, it's very much now going down a legal process to a trial at the end of this year here in federal court in new york. so a couple of questions you ask yourself, does prince andrew have diplomatic immunity? the answer to that by most legal analysts is no, only the queen, queen and her immediate household have diplomatic immunity. he does not fall under that category, but will he be present at the trial in new york? the answer to that is also know that highly unlikely. and that's because this is
7:12 am
a civil case right now and not a criminal case. and in civil cases the, the courts can not ask for the u. k to extradite someone to the u. s. for a civil case such as this, if it was criminal, that's different, but this is civil. so it's highly unlikely, almost unfathomable, that he will actually be there at the court, assuming his trial goes forward. so then you ask yourself, what are his big risk? well, does he have to give testimony under oath for this trial? the answer to that is yes. he most likely will. oh, so let's come here and i'll just hearing tutoring, reinstate giant ever gran flights. the demolition of dozens of buildings as more property developers in china, struggle to pay off their debts. and we visit the scene of america in some far a state where nigerian government promises action the killing of more than 60 people more in those states. ah,

7:18 am
be cancelled for a 2nd. time and jock of it could be deported. this law, this discretionary power, allows him to put any visa holder, and it could be for the smallest element, it could be a public health risk, or it could be the fact that he's provided false information on an immigration statement or declaration on arrival. so we're all whining that decision in australia on thursday afternoon. meanwhile, sir, in terms of the tennis though, what does all of this mean for the australian open? what caused the phase of the world? number one means test play. it hangs in the balance. and so to does the australian open, we had expected the drawer for the australian open the tournament, which starts in 4 days. we had expected that drawer to be given released this afternoon. that's now been delayed as they white this decision. so nova novak doc of it and naomi soccer, they are the defending champions. the strain open on thursday has also announced that due to a spike in the number of infections of covered 19 in victoria, they've had to reduce or certainly pause the st. capacity to 50 percent for next

week's a tournament, so that the prime minister, we should state above all of this and. and what kind of looking like potentially an announcement from the immigration minister on thursday afternoon. we have to remember what the prime minister scott morrison said last week, and he stated that rules are rules and allowing jock of it to stay in the country. i would certainly set a dangerous precedent, or if joker, which is deported then, or we do expect a joke of which is lawyers to once again appeal that decision or to sara clark live for sand brisbin syrup. thank you. now a high stakes meeting between russia and nato, the ukraine has ended without a breakthrough. both sides said there were significant differences during what they described was frank and open discussions aren't as there was dorsal jibari reports from moscow. a meeting nearly 3 years in the making. as high ranking members of the russian foreign and defense ministry join me to officials and brussels. the meeting lasted longer than expected. that nato secretary general remain steadfast,
7:20 am

7:21 am
we will respond with counter intimidation. if it looks for vulnerabilities in the russian defense system, we will look for nato's vulnerabilities. it's not our choice, but we don't have other options if we don't overturn this current very dangerous course of events. oh, see. despite the lack of an official agreement, the talks are being seen as a success, if only because they didn't ends in acrimony. despite rushes continue to insist that he has no intention of envy crane there seems little sign of an immediate end to the crisis door. so jabari al jazeera moscow. a search is underway for more bodies in northern nigeria after gunman rated villages shooting people and burning homes. 60 people are confirmed dead, but witnesses reported seeing the 200 bodies. the raids come after gunman dare strikes targeted, the high doubts of criminal gaffs aren't zeroes, acquitted to support from some former state. as dusk approaches these displeased
