12:02 am
cruise scientists say the protection from the maternal and by on take pfizer corona virus, vaccines could last years. that means no booster shots, but that also means no major mutations of the virus and it's variance, no guarantee there and no guarantee will get the existing variance under control either from australia to south africa to bangladesh. the delta variant is responsible for new locked downs and in spain, it's threatening to turn the british tourist into this somers persona non grata. i'm brent gulf and berlin. this is the day the new new dine no room for complacency. we really faced the nice serious process a kind of a panoramic since the early days in february, march,
12:03 am
last year the situation had gotten worse along with many other countries on the continent, africa, south africa, the massive researches of impression. i think everybody to be so afraid of a silly people by the 1000 also coming up air conditioning used to be taboo in places like seattle in vancouver will not anymore a huge heat don't. has people living along the pacific coast of canada in the us feeling like they woke up along the equator? yeah, i mean, you just stand around, you know, like i, you can, breeze is so high for me. definitely have 2 issues. yeah. yeah. the pavement, even gravity. thank you. go back inside
12:04 am
our viewers on p b. s in the united states into all of the around the world. welcome. we begin today with reason to imagine a post pandemic world, free of any vaccine booster shots. a new study released today is adding to the evidence that the m r in the vaccines madonna and by on tech pfizer, offer protection that is durable, durable, as in decades. but that will depend on how the virus mutates moving forward. and it is precisely the variance of the virus that threatened to dash, all hopes future and present. just ask the people down under australia is facing several outbreaks of the highly infectious delta v area. a lockdown is now in effect in sidney and will be so for at least 2 weeks. and it's not only in new south wales where the variant is spreading. it is absolutely necessary. the reality is, we are not out of the woods yet, not by a long while. the risk to the community has grown in the past 24 hours. we are now
12:05 am
in an extremely critical period. we must die locked down while we keep this bar as trapped. well, they are saying the same tonight in south africa and it's all too familiar there. south africa has reintroduced tough restrictions, including abandoned the cell of alcohol. it also extended nightly curfews as it struggles against a new surgeon cove in 1900 cases caused by the delta vary. here is south africans, president 0 roma folks we are in the grid of a devastating wave that about all indications seems like it would be west and both that preceded it. the peak of this fed way looks to be higher than the previous 2 waves. over more now, i'm joined by doctor john campbell. he is a health analyst based in england, and he is considered an authority on all questions about this pandemic. it's good
12:06 am
to see you again. what is it about this delta variant? that means so many countries are now increasing, pandemic restrictions where they were just emerging back into normality. it is just so disappointing. bryant isn't there things looking like that going well . and now we're sort of plunged back into the depth of it. it's the increased trans mis ability of this very now public health things and just said it's 64 percent more transmissible than the previous u. k. ken's alpha, the variance, and that was about 40 percent more transmissible than the original wild strain variant. so this is at least twice as transmissible as the original barrier that we'll be dealing with. and this means that measures that were working before such as household isolation for example, and no longer working. now we're finding that the virus is spreading around the whole household. this is launched the how it got seated in the u. k. people coming from india. they were isolating at home. but passing the virus on to other members
12:07 am
of the household were taking out into the, into the community and things in the care of the case. they're going to magically up. i mean, today in the u. k. almost 23000 new cases in the u. k. just of the single day and about 70 percent of the past week. the, there's a really sharp increase in play. places that have this delta area and that the percentage of cases seemed to be pretty well doubling every week. so somebody like germany and out about 15 percent next week could well be 30 percent. very transmissible high viral loads, small numbers of viruses need to become, in fact, it is a big transmission problem. and what about the vaccines? is there now a consensus on which vaccines are or are not effective or can protect us against this delta various the big thing about the delta value is if you don't get a high degree of protection after one dose of either vaccines. so we're looking at
12:08 am
about 30 percent for the oxford astrazeneca vaccine cover for the 1st dose, only about 36 percent for the final vaccine. but after 2 doses, the effects are really quite similar. and the protects again, hospitalisation and sickness, which is really the important thing about 92 and 94 percent protection. so even a low the slight differences in the risk of getting symptomatic disease. the chances of getting really sick are very good and we've got good levels of protection with both vaccines, whether it's the, the oxford or the files that were using in the u. k. interesting point. know that the symptoms of changing quite a bit of people vaccinated. so people need to have a high index of suspicion for common cold time symptoms. so the most common symptoms now when people but 2 racks in the headache, really no c, sneezing and sore throat. so if people are getting those, they need to consider the possibility of the virus go and get tested in case the pressing on to more button ruble people. and you know, we are beginning this height of the summer travel season. some countries have re
12:09 am
open tours under certain conditions and we know that thousands of people are traveling to the euro. 2020 football then use is another spike in cases inevitable with this the you know, 2020 is a concern. the epidemiologist in denmark of identified 5 cases of delta, very and in danish fans, and they're pretty sure they got it from a football match. that means they go to outside even the lower, the crowds are not a capacity. now the transmission outdoors would not have occurred with the original barrier, because this is so much more transmissible. it's possible that the your football tournament could be a super spreader event. we hope not because it is outdoors, but there are cases and evidence of that now. and i really think we are taking with what we know today, we're taking quite a risk on carrying on with these large capacity football games. when you look around the world campbell,
12:10 am
the places where the delta varied is really spreading almost out of control. and are there enough vaccines there for people to get vaccinated apps? absolutely not brand. to me. we're actually looking at a tail of 2 worlds and i, we've got your, the vaccination program has gotten really well. it's catching up with the u. k. it's actually accelerating the u. k. is reasonably good. the united states is kind of in between the 2 of the vaccine uptake in the u. s. has been slightly lower of late. vaccines are going well in china, but pretty well everywhere in the world. vaccinations are low in research due to lot low uptake, but in most countries in the world is due to low vaccines supply. and we know that because this disparity so much more transmissible, we need a higher level of community or heard immunity to suppress the virus. we're probably looking about 80 percent of people that we need to be in the community to really suppress this virus. we're nowhere near the in indonesia, for example, cases a spiking. we've learned about a strange south africa with the delta variant countries. i'm particularly worried
12:11 am
about bangladesh, pakistan, my, him are thailand combo, the vietnam, all the area, seeing dramatic increases. now with completely inadequate vaccination, we really need to have an emergency sorts of manhattan projects on vaccines for the world. dr. john campbell is always good talking with him, but we appreciate your time and your valuable insights tonight. thank you. but thank you, but the well to soccer. now, in one of the most intense rivalries in the game, some would say in all a sport on tuesday, england will host germany at wimbley in the last 16 of euro 2020. historically, germany have come out on top and these tournament clashes with one exception, that goes way back. i wasn't even a sparkle in my father's eye when the 3 lions last claim victory against the germans at wim. the historical game with
12:12 am
a goal that remains controversial today. i thought england's only major trophy came in 1966 when they beat west germany on home soil to claim the world cup courtesy of what's known in germany as the wembley go. the rivalry has since made its mark on pop culture. germany both for world cup titles and 3 european championships there last year as when came in 1996 when they beat england and penalty shoot out in their own backyard on route to the final current. england coach garris southgate missed the decisive spot. kick in the semi final clash, england have traditionally made more of the rivalry than the german counterparts with the media often stoking the flames of this rather one sided affair. but now that has been a role reversal of sorts. gemini is usually clinical efficiency, has disappeared, and 3 wildly inconsistent performances saw them not
12:13 am
a loss when and a drawer to scrape through the group stage. meanwhile, the 3 lions have played less exciting but most solid football unbeaten in 3 games. and yet to concede england fans will be hoping garris southgate could make up for his penalty miss. but against germany, it's never easy. the it's, and for more on the big game we have a very on corresponded jonathan harding at wembley. get to you, jonathan, your there were the actually going to take place. we know there's tons of media coverage. the british media, they like to refer to the england germany rivalry as one of the greatest of all sports. is it i think that might be a little over the top, if i'm honest, the whole basis of a rivalry is that both sides of some level of success and quite frankly,
12:14 am
england hadn't been able to do that against germany, oregon to anybody else for that matter and recent told them, and so i think that's part of the issue. i think it's a big game, but i think the rivalry is not what used to be, quite frankly, the 2 sides are approaching this fixture in a slightly different way. more noise wearing his rainbow on bands, so his english captain, hurricane and both sides will kneel before the kick off. so it feels a little less like a rivalry. and a little bit more like 2 teams standing or representing something bigger than football, which is perhaps more important than a football robbery. yes. or there's a very, very important observation there. england will be playing at home. is that likely to work in their favor? do you think i think so, 40000 and fines are expected in the stadium so that can only be a boost, especially in type games, which is likely what this will be germany and i've always had close games and they've played each other so i can only work doing the advantage, however, must also be said in a fight, most of the games they games for that matter at home. so there is
12:15 am
a settlement of pressure to be involved here as well. you know, the expectation of delivering at home in a major tournament is there. we've heard a lot about football coming home. well, it is tomorrow night. but the question is, for how long? you know, there's a little bit of risk here too for anyone involved. we know that the german chancellor americans, she's asked fans not to travel to london because of the risk of the delta variant. what measures are in place to stop the spread of the virus because of the game? well, every find needs to have a ticket. i need the proof proof, excuse me, of negative test or proof of full vaccination, which is perhaps a standard procedure. but what i found most interesting was that face or mouth coverings are required, but not medical mosque. so the f, f, p to muster the most common in germany for example, are not necessarily the standard. you just need something to cover your face and mouth. so that is perhaps a concern. i think generally having 40000 people in stadium, which is that increase capacity from the group stages is also
12:16 am
a concern. so there are some questions to be asked about whether this is a good idea or after all. and jonathan, before we let you go, it is prediction time with yes, showed the clairvoyant elephant. so who is she going for this time? wait for it's there you go out of the, the drunk, it's germany. yes. who lives in hamburg z? no. all ready, correctly predicted the results in germany's last 3 euro 2020 games. i mean, you may have to trust in the task. so job and do you agree with this elephant? well, your soda might be yoda when it comes to predicting football. but i think the forces within and we will see the w core as jonathan tardy yet. where be jonathan? thank you. the well,
12:17 am
imagine the early summer temperatures you've always know now add a heat way that doubles those temperatures. it is extreme and it's reality for large parts of the united states and canada at the moment. in one village in canada's british columbia. the temperature reached nearly 47 degrees celsius at the weekend. that's a 116 degrees fahrenheit. the average maximum temperature there for late june is 19 degrees celsius. 67 degrees fahrenheit. the cooling due to beat the summer heat. residence sticks of the water assist her momma rose above 40 degrees celsius in seattle for the 1st time ever high. i mean, you just stand around like i you can breathe. it's so hard for me. definitely have to issue. yeah, yeah. the pavement you been around like well, no, thank you. go back inside the heat was too much for this farmer's
12:18 am
market very few times. so we do close the market early, most of the time of which we've ever had to close the market earliest because because of the heat, i think that's the 1st time we've ever closed early cuz the temperature is like, these are no coincidence. the past decade has been the warmest on record, and the 5 hottest days were all recorded in the last 5 years. the main thing going on is, is highly unusual weather pattern. but that being said, climate change is real. our temperatures have warmed here, especially summer nighttime temperatures. and so that has just kind of raised the baseline in made this heat event that much more severe while some seem to revel in the extreme temperatures. many environmentalists say this heat wave bears all the hallmarks of a climate emergency. and for more now,
12:19 am
i'm joined by david phillips. he is a climb itala. jesse join me tonight from toronto, the cool side of can the at the moment. miss phillips is good to have you on the program. when you look at these high temperatures in the western parts of canada in the united states, tell me how much of this is extreme weather and how much of this is climate change? you know, brett, it's always the question that comes up anytime you get a monster. hurricane, a super typhoon, a heat wave of forest fire, people always say coming out of our candle pipes and smokestacks. well, you know, i think it's, we know that climate change doesn't create a heat waves or hurricanes or major storms, but it contributes to it. you know, these heat waves are like our grandparents. she weighs the evil curd before. but what's different about the brett is the intensity of them be the statistics stuff
12:20 am
and the character personality, the nature of the way. they're not all the same. this one is much earlier than we've ever seen before. typically in western canada, we see the warmest temperatures occurred, the end of july, the beginning of august. this is in june when it's typically not the warmest time. we're seeing the area of the sprawling from the arctic circle right down to the desert. so west and, and know escaping it and with record breaking and we just broke a record of the for 84 years. yeah. and so i think that what time change does it sort of wraps it up. it's sort of like the steroids for weather and, and so therefore it makes systems bigger and better, and, and more impactful. and so i think the degree, the elements of this heat wave are clearly has human dna, but it's not the total cost. but as we move forward, if we look into the future, should we be calculating more heat waves like this?
12:21 am
to be a part of the weather. and she would be talking about a new normal when we talk about normal weather. well, clearly it's brad. i mean, there's no question about it. we, what you see is what you're going to get is the forecast for the future. and likely we will see breaking or record record stanford for one or 2 more days, or else maybe 2 years, not 84 years. and so my sense is that clearly get used to it. this is the new norm . this is the kind of weather event that we'll see more often, especially in a country like canada. i mean, we're the 2nd coldest country in the world. the snow is country, the world, people come and ask about windshield and polar vortex and, and frost bite. it's not these, these incredible desert, like temperatures. and so for us, where we don't have air conditioning to speak of in the west or even our buildings are not set up to shed the heat, is because it's
12:22 am
a real dangerous situation historically unprecedented. but from a public health point of view, it is quite, quite a hit. and so i think the, the lesson is here more of a stronger, more intense heat. that is the forecast going ahead. and what's your advice to people living, for example, in vancouver or in the united states in seattle, in those cities, air conditioning has traditionally been taboo. and now, i mean, am i right in assuming it's mainstream, you're going to need it if you want to survive. oh, i think it's artificial cooling that is going to clearly be the the, the but you can't buy an air conditioner or a fan in, in all the west coast of canada. and so that's going to be more, it's going to be homes are going to be built with built in air conditioning. i mean, and that of course, can make it worse because it can create more, more energy needs and, and that could wrap it up more. i mean, it's like
12:23 am
a vicious cycle in a way, so i think people are trying to adjust to it. my best advice is to put off today, which you can do next week. i mean, it's going to come to annette. but clearly the people who are most affected by this are the elderly infants that don't perspire as well, and they have poor circulation, the homeless people, we're already seeing cooling centers are hoping longer and hydrating centers. even industry is closing down because of the, the heat at the day. so it's something that is just not factored into our, our plans in our strategies, but it's going to have to be going ahead. this is a lesson to, to learn. this is not something that is just a one off, it's going to be something that's going to be very much part of of the new climate here in, in canada. yeah, the 21st century climate. definitely not. 20th century, any more. mr. david phillips, senior climatology for environment and climate change. we appreciate your time and
12:24 am
your insights tonight. thank you. thank you. brad. the, the official death toll from bet condo building collapse and your miami has risen to 10 with more than 150 people. still missing, rescuers say they have not given up hope of finding more survivors in the rubble. why the 12 story building collapsed is unknown, but a former building worker says the foundations were frequently flooded with sea water. as a precaution, inspections have been ordered for all nearby high rise buildings that are 40 years and older. the started south africa were going to end with south africa where the sardine fever has broken out. once a year, millions of sardines swim along the country's coast, followed by birds. sharks and fishermen rushing to get their share of the catch. our very own correspondent adrian creek decided to do some fishing himself.
12:25 am
this isn't an oil leak. it's a shoal of sardines fishermen. gerald michael and his team a waiting for this one. yes. yeah, no, that was within seconds. everything suddenly gets very hectic. one for one. got what i called thought in view. everybody starts to run and chat. yeah, yeah. yeah. i know every year between june and august, the saudi and move along the east coast of south africa following the cold currents in the indian ocean. bigger hungry fish follow them. and so do the fishermen, the clothes or the shoals of sardines gets to the coast. the better the chances of catch a little
12:26 am
pocket of sightings in the middle of the net. a thing on the road is huge disappointment when the net gets caught and breaks. most of the sardines get away would of course it off with a few kilometers further on. another team has more like throw and catches 150 crates worth of sardines in a net 2 thirds of the fish i sold for more than 2000 euros. the rest goes to the team and then took a chance to gamble and paid off. and like you can see the novice as you know in the game, it's very dangerous. as you can see, i've injured myself. i had
12:27 am
a cable go through my legs. and that's the name of the game. we play with shocks, rocks, nets, rough seas, everything box. if you can get the fish, you can make some money. for gerald bucko and his team, the 1st thing to do is repair the nets and then go home empty handed bed bed 3 bad luck. got everybody. i suppose the name gets it according to buckle, saw the fever, should be around for a few more weeks. to be a star. di know right. the day is almost done with the conversation continues online. you'll find this on twitter either w news. you can follow me and bring golf tv. remember, whatever happens between now and then, tomorrow is another day. we'll see you then everybody who's
