vladimir putin that the country had already produced 2000000 doses of the drug and ease ready for mass vaccination and to be honest russia needs it just as well as the entire world because corona virus cases grow and call that 19 related deaths can continue to remain on a very high level well the vaccination is on a voluntary basis but not everybody can get an injection here is deputy mayor about who will be the 1st to get sputnik could be futile which it would have in the it's not simple shooting risk groups have priority 1st tries to vaccination workers such as doctors and teachers who deal with a large number of people who are also nursing staff administrator as cleaners and other burkas in social institutions as they're also traced these candidates also required to be in a good health condition of course aged 18 to 60 earlier mayor is sad that half of moscow residents already mune to corona virus $20000.00 of them got

a sputnik the injection as clinical trials volunteers phase 3 of it still goes on but early interim results showed that sputnik the vaccine is over 95 percent effective $42.00 days after the 1st shot and it would be fair to mention that u.s. based foreign giants pfizer and moderna just recently also announced a similar efficacy of their of vaccines but russia is certainly the 1st to start mass vaccination now varia we know that you took part of the final stage of the vaccine trials can you tell us about your experience yes sure yes i am one of thousands of volunteers taking part in phase 3 of the clinical trials of the. it is what is known as double blind placebo trials when only 25 percent 75 percent of the participants get real drug and 25 percent of them get placebo and
7:08 am
neither doctor is no participant supposed to know who is getting ward but i was too impatient and i made a blood test. first of all i have to tell you that i got the 1st shot in mid september and the 2nd 121 days later and couple of days after the 2nd chart i got a blood test that showed me that my body started producing antibodies g. and neither blood tests i made just a couple of weeks ago showed that their number is growing and of course i'm very happy with that there were some side effects after the 1st shot and the 2nd shot but they faded away and it's nothing compared to the benefits i now have you know protected from coronavirus of course but it is hope that the mass vaccination program will ease pressure on hospitals across russia that have been plenty of examples of the health care system struggling to cope including the case of a pensioner who had to spend 12 hours now because all the clinics were full as artie's anton kosofsky now reports.
7:09 am
much of. the lots. on the 27th of october the 23 ambulances came here to the arms of the local health department they parked like this too along the curb and through the roof right up to the entrance really for 12 hours then we drove in there around the town to hospitalize the sick and every hospital refused. to let me know i'm standing right now in front of the health department i know there are already 3 ambulances here as you can hear they switched on their sirens but they drove up and stopped right here 123. so there were 3 on the loose here yes 3 women to have things and they brought oxygen to the. but there is because when you drive the same patient around for 12 hours the oxygen tank runs open for i want as i will happen to exactly why are they driving in circles for 12 hours i've been speaking to a paramedic he said it works like this they are brigade essentially. an ordinary
7:10 am
call and then they realize the person has community acquired pneumonia and. that person was 17 years old and the situation. was that they were going to die right that yes you want to take a patient to take an oxygen tank they start calling the ambulance isn't dispatched but comes from the ambulance station so they start calling the station saying these guys we have a patient 1st of all if they don't have p.p.d. themselves i took pictures loaded that they only had their usual. postal probably weren't ready for anything. they only had ordinary masks the disposable ones so guys we have a coated patient and they say wait we're looking for sort of way to look at just goes on for 12 hours straight at some point they lost their patients. we couldn't get to know insania where else we decided to ask directly maybe someone who will respond. 100 percent each question is a shame i cannot send her home he's
7:11 am
a for humane or medical reasons know where to drive her to because warren given the necessary information we hope to be able to service something here. and spot the risks of working with victims there's been no shortage of volunteers coming forward to help the international federation of red cross and red crescent society says it has been overwhelmed by offers from around the globe. this year in response to an unprecedented humanitarian need the r.c. has witnessed equally unprecedented humanitarian kindness with hundreds of thousands of people joining the red cross red crescent family for the 1st time all the while contending with the terrible impacts of covert 19 on the rome lives while numbers have been high across the globe with european countries each recording tens of thousands of sign ups we asked people why they had decided to come forward. i
7:12 am
started one tearing with the red cross in the beginning of target this year after i cope with the isolation facility here and the reason why i started well and here with the red cross there is because i had actually stayed at the facility when i have come back and august and the red cross that so much for me and i really want to do something for them and give back to the red cross and the society i really recommend doing it to get to know a lot of different people from different backgrounds and being able to do something good for society in this situation when the pandemic started i began to actively participate in their ration retros response to call the 19 i decided it was my time with this terrifying tearing in their. in this difficult period. because i understand their. power how much help and how much support is it needed to every person especially on their
7:13 am
for their elderly and lonely people or my colleague can speak more about this to the sec regenerates of the international federation of red cross and red crescent societies. we have seen a many many people young volunteers people who to your school report want to support this is primarily motivated by our principle of humanity and our principle of universality because these seeds are truly a global crisis and without global so we've got a deep we cannot contain this this pandemic so that's what we've got it is that mainly it's a part of the sort of what do you think of the main difficulties these law in tears come across almost every 2 years have i that there's apparently members and friends and colleagues also affected by the time in the so why are contending with their own personal suffering and sometimes personal loss there also some would debate it to express that group and so you got it deep that. campari what to do to help
7:14 am
others but also sure initially there was a short it's a personal protective equipment there was also not enough information information that was needed to ensure that they can go forward and volunteer in a safe environment. but we have surely learned dorsett practices to protect her peepee materials have been now available more easily but there are 2 other elements you know that it's also in many part of the stigma around i don't depend that doesn't help we have also seen betty increased. increased number of mental health issues increases in domestic violence issues so when the woman ts want to help to deal with the pandemic they are also seeing that at the same time they also have to support people on the mental health issues domestic violence issues stigma issues and what are your thoughts on the vaccines being rolled out next week add to that
7:15 am
not going to threaten the tide of infections. i think they could actually i'm definitely going to be helpful but we need to also understand that this is not going to be a silver bullet just because of accident and now being rolled out that it will suddenly stop the vitus that's not going to happen unfortunately i did it is still a massive need for production and distribution to look stickle distributors and challenge would be would be a massive. cultural and ability of vaccine especially for the part the countries you know the countries who don't have the finance it means to put approaches that are actually right now so having that it could involve distribution of factories all around the world would be critical and we have somewhere to go to these that point. i mean while the pandemic has had another record in the united states more than 100000 people were taken to hospital with the virus on thursday alone and this rising public anger to you would have lawmakers are breaking the
7:16 am
very law down rules that they set to others while putting people in danger. i need to do a much better job of showing folds how to follow the rules i failed. it doesn't matter whether something is technically allowed or not i need to hold myself to a higher standard and i will do better. i regret the throw even though it's violated nor did it said that bad example for which oh.
7:17 am
well i think punishment won't work so well here in the united states for those officials will going to have to persuade them actually to participate in mass wearing and not going to a large group gatherings persuasion over the long term will work much better i think than on the show i think actually we need to get a whole collection of people little leaders medical leaders leaders leaders business people all together saying the same thing and then slowly but surely i think our citizens will comply. watching out international are going to take a quick break now we'll have more nice intimidates.
7:18 am
the world is driven by a dream shaped by one person. who dares thinks. we dare to ask. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development only mostly i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
7:19 am

7:20 am
stark contrast to see the moment when she breaks the news of that ruling to the daughters of some of those soldiers to hit home exactly how devastating that news has been to these young girls. so you know that we were going to be going to court to ask the judge if our case could be heard at the high court ok so we were all there on tuesday in dad's house and sadly the judge has said that our case cannot be heard in court. ok and sorry about that. we you know we've tried our best to. to ask the judge to look at your cases sympathetically and also for the men right and. that doesn't mean that it's the end. we'll sort you out.
7:21 am
but we'll just have to wait to be here. because i know it's relieved it's really hot name so terry and lily it's a rather calcutta of the 3 daughters of tate to see who's facing the potential of 850000 pound medical bill because he hasn't got legal status in the u.k. grayson kelly is a 20 under seats his daughter despite what is clearly a major setback the goals remain committed to their cause i hate that it takes me and i was right this decision is not i can't realise that what he's doing is actually affecting our release the government maintain that they've acted properly and that they continue to work with veterans in order to understand how best to apply. the home office and the ministry of defense work closely with our foreign and commonwealth recruits to make sure they are aware of how they and their families can attain settlements in the u.k.
7:22 am
and the costs involved a seat i had wanted us to come and see as she broke the news to those girls to hit home the impact that this is going to have on those men's families she stated that the judge at the high court didn't take into account the impact that it would have on the families and that she said that rather than focusing on the legalities there's a moral imperative particularly on the government to allow those meant to remain east alley and stoke on trent. the trumpet ministration is ramping up measures against china hit has closed 5 cultural exchange programs in the us accusing them of being a propaganda tool and secretary of state might compare as also announced new visa restrictions on chinese citizens today i announce to be restrictions on united front work department officials who have engaged in malign activities to co-opt and coerce those who oppose beijing's policies we call on the p.r.c.

7:24 am
think china national association of international studies says that the trumpet ministrations attacks on beijing a misguided reason to do to ration in china u.s. relations is very much caused by the poisoning by president trump and his followers in the us administration if you listen to what president trump and his government have been saying how much do you really give credit as to what they say how much children there is it whatever they are at 30 i think there is not a lot of balls for a lot of misrepresentation of distortion because they are afraid of the larger china but the rise of china is a megatrend that you cannot stop child but will be larger than the united states but a larger china doesn't make china and enemy of the united states why should we minimize exchanges of ideas people goods services between china and the united states that your largest economies in the world's any minimization of this hurts the americans
