5:04 pm
both perfectly legitimate targets the ukrainians, by the way, say that they were actually for missiles fired to them, were shot down on the way. but lensky is suggesting there's really no reason to negotiate with the russians, because they simply, in his words, can't be trusted. and john president, the landscape also spoke about some progress being made in her, som, what's the latest fair? that's right, that is a strategic point for the ukrainian military forces is between the korean peninsula and that port at odessa and the ukrainians would very much like to take it back. it was taken early on by russian forces without a lot of resistance, and as ukrainians left, they failed to knock out the bridges that connected it over the over the river. so that allowed russians to come right in ukrainian forces are now targeting those very same bridges, trying to cut off the russians from their supplies. and de lensky says,
5:05 pm

5:07 pm
a for very prolific options. but at the moment there's no sign, it's going to do that. i think the raising level is out of an abundance of caution . and hopefully things will calm down again. but at the moment it's one of those just wait and see situations. a funeral has been held for 2 palestinians killed in an israeli military occupation operating all that in the occupant. west bank and other 19 were wounded, 2 of them critically in the raid annapolis. general shaw has been called to mourn the victims. israel says its forces were on an arrest mission and exchanged fire with palestinians barricaded in house on home and has more from the this is the, the grave side of one of the young palestinian men who were killed in the israeli right here in the new of an occupied westbank city of nablus. oh, wasn't that his name?

5:19 pm
a global health emergency. we have an outbreak that has spread around the wood rapidly through new modest of transmission about which we understand truly to and which meets the criteria in the international health regulations. there have been about 3000 cases in the u. s. so far and many more in europe and dozens of other countries including india, russia, and brazil. mat ford battled the virus for more than 3 weeks. it was excruciating at times you know, and i had intense flu like symptoms. so fever, chills, sore throat, cause went into my sheets at night. and then you know, to tell, tell skin regions which i had from the get go, but more of them appeared throughout the infection. and towards the end, i counted more than $25.00 all over my body and they just appeared everywhere. women and children in the us have clot, monkey pox, but the us centers for disease control says 99 percent of the cases are seen among
5:20 pm
gay and bisexual men. the disease is spread by close skin, the skin body, contact muggy box vaccine, and testing kits are in short supply frustrating health experts. i think we kind of stumbled out of the blocks in a few ways, one of which is testing. i don't think there was enough testing available early enough. and then the 2nd thing is with the vaccines, we have vaccines available there, approve have em purchase. they are in a national stock pile and it's been getting them out of the stockpile. it's been really challenging and that's currently where the bottleneck is right now. the white house says the government has distributed 300000 doses of monkey pox vaccine and is tried to speed up the shipment of about 800000 more doses from denmark where they are manufactured. but that may be too little too late. rob reynolds al jazeera los angeles, a global health emergency is the w, i chose highest level for an outbreak. the world body can issue guidance,
5:21 pm
the governments to prevent the virus from spreading, but it can't force them to take specific action like implement vaccine mandates. the w a cho says there's a little chance that monkey box will disrupt travel right now, but it's wanting the virus could spread around the world. during general, tedra set on gabrielle says, says more than 70 countries have reported cases with more than 16000 people infected. that child was a former w h o, a system director general and carnegie mellon university. he's backing the agencies decision the w h. show convene to experts meetings to deliberate on the severity and the urgency responding to this crisis. and they developed a series of what i would call a epidemiological dashboard. and experts that can reasonably look at the data over the past month and think, well,
5:22 pm
there are some indicators that point rather than it's not as severe as one would think. however, the critical weakness of the data is that is often lags reality, that the virus may be ahead of the data. so it's in my judgement. dr. pedro's is airing on the side of taking pro action to mobilize governments and mobilize civil society. it's not only a medical response, it's a political response, and that is what is needed at all countries at all community levels in order to truncate the epidemic at the bud. so monkey pox can be very dangerous, particularly to pregnant women and or feed at their developing fetus. it can be very dangerous to the immunocompromised in certain circumstances that can cause brain and spinal cord infection. and even blindness. farm is in indonesia,
