battling coronavirus a self. who her true home. to go our own course. through her of her of war or murder or. nurse. who we saw told us the situation is a breaking point we're stuck now we were running low on oxygen on supplies on you know all the respiratory drugs definitely bad definitely staff we don't have enough staff we are beyond stretched we have patients in overflow overflow overflow areas that were never intended to have patients other hospitals are setting out makeshift units outside of the hospital our government they blew it all so they could have released to the defense production act and ramped up the

production of p.p. and all the other supplies that we need and they didn't do that so the whole the whole nations in a big big predicament of how we're going to be able to treat patients safely and give them the care that they need that officials have issued safer at home or the meantime to try to stop the virus from emergencies gatherings for anything other than political or religious purposes about and most not essential companies be forced to shut down the city mayors urged people to think twice about the plans over the festive period. there's no celebrating this year for our health care workers who are facing the toughest times they've ever seen for them we're staying home for them we're skipping holiday parties every sacrifice makes a difference to stopping the covert 1000 surge. taney again blaming public recklessness for out of control infections i can't even imagine what it be like to be a governor right now the state. especially california california is
3:04 am
a powerhouse right it's got the 6th largest economy in the world and. the fact that you know businesses are shutting down you have a lot of very vocal californians and and they were giving him a tremendous amount of pressure to open up and i understand that but you could open up safely and people just weren't big saving why i would drive by bars and people would have their masks off and there'd be it be densely densely crowded and then you hear people like running out homes and having parties where there's 1000 people there so it's the public it's us it's the ignorance of the human being we continue to. defy the recommendations of the c.d.c. we continue to gather and i understand how important holidays are there just as important for me i haven't seen my family in mines it's terribly serious and people
3:05 am
need to understand that you have to be careful and it doesn't matter your age it doesn't matter yes it dies it does it matters your age and your cum or biddies but there's plenty of younger people that have died from this. well here russia is registered 27000 new covert cases in the last day alone older people are known to be more susceptible of course with almost half the people catching the virus in moscow over the age of 46 however one persons probe that there is hope no matter your age in central russia the disease has been defeated by one very brave lady has reached a huge special. i don't know what the secret of my recovery ends but i know that we need to keep calm and preserve our nerves a lot of. she
3:06 am
was hospitalized in a relatively severe condition she was upbeat 10 responded well to treatment she recovered quickly she felt really precious to us and we wanted to pay around the clock. to see that it looked as though you were grateful to the doctors she's an optimist and radiates positivity that's why she's made us happy for so little. you have to say looking great coverage workstation programs rolling out worldwide and here in russia the elderly are starting to get the sputnik v. at the weekend the health ministry broadened its priority list for the shop to include those over the age of 60 the safety and efficacy tests were concluded front line workers had been 1st in line this month our correspondent leaper trying to
3:07 am
this morning out of moscow vaccination center them. of course it's finally great to get some good news about kolb it out last vaccination centers in moscow including at the clinic where i am right now are getting more busy because the program is kicking off and i can tell you that here i've already spoken to the 1st person from that age group 60 plus to get the job. i love to finally take off my most can future thing that i had seen me let me do that so monday is definitely a milestone here in russia because pretty much anyone from that age group 60 plus at least in the russian capital could get enrolled and that case most likely forget about everything that we've become so sick and tired of this year and that explains why the moscow mayor is proud and happy and by the way has been
3:08 am
vaccinated to the russian ministry of health has approved the opportunity for the older generation to be vaccinated against code 19 but the sputnik the jap it's great elderly people of the biggest risk group which is the most severely affected by the disease starting monday we're opening registration for vaccination i can say so myself then really works so the program is kicking off exactly 2 days after the russian ministry of health gave the green light for the vaccination of the elderly people and i can tell you that the clinical trials for this age group have showed that it's safe and pointed to 90 percent efficacy that is despite earlier criticism from some experts that we're talking about the high likelihood of side effects which include fever muscle pain and headaches and it's been reported that about 15 percent of those who get the job could face the sides effects but
3:09 am
again clinical trials at the end of. they are saying that despite the people who go for the job of everything will be ok and that's again definitely a breakthrough the people that will really have to watch out for the side effects are those with allergies and quantico illnesses so before making the decision on whether to get vaccinated or not you really have to go through a very serious medical checkup and this is exactly what i asked the head of this clinic about a little earlier live there in your books in the nation screening is common practice a person undergoes the same examination before the flu vaccine it's done to exclude risks from acute illness or if it's you know a g.'s and to measure temperature as of august recess health in terms of chronic disease if people fit the criteria we include them in the vaccination group. so it's obvious though that there are many many people who have still not made up their mind on whether they should get the job or not but definitely an extra
3:10 am
confidence boost for them will be the fact that we heard from a lot of more potent secretary that the russian president will get vaccinated as well and we know that he is part of that age group as well the russian leader is 68 years old. the e.u. has launched a cross border vaccination program with a target of not collecting all adults in 2021 contracts have been secured with supplies for more than 2000000000 vaccine doses that however polls point to high levels of hesitancy towards getting the shot pulled asli is in france where the battle against the pandemics complicated too by both a lack of vaccines and skepticism over having that injection. 1000000 that if they make a number of people their own thank you vaccinate by the end of. the focus now nursing homes like this one and the facility where it is then vulnerable
3:11 am
individuals and emergency workers 1st in line to. just say the vaccination is the only way to stop the virus the people here in france are split on the issue just above us and i'm not really in favor i think we do not have enough feedback on this vaccine at the moment even if it can save lives maybe it will be good to wait a little bit older than i am for vaccines normally it takes 10 years of research and testing but in this case as the vaccine has been readied very quickly i have mixed feelings i would do it for me if. i was really the 1st to do it or if i had to do it to trouble i think everyone should take it because that's the only way we're going to have enough herd immunity to get out of the problem so i don't see a need to have the vaccination i probably wouldn't have one recent poll suggests that about half the population is again getting inoculated and it's not just me and to get there we have fears that the vaccination has nothing takes to popping in the
3:12 am
u.k. and us the number of people who have developed a severe and reaction to the vaccination as has happened in other countries and then on top of that there's a general mistrust to the government something we took the population field at present upon fumbled his way for the 2nd way to do people here feel that paris has its hand on top of things now all we could hear was so one thing that day and other things that we. exist i think it's easy to criticize when you're not in their shoes i think you might have a harder lockdown and maybe not that people close so free over christmas i can't say they did a good job or a bad job i think they just did what they could i worked out schools people and there is a lot of sick people as a result we don't have any need for any any tunes from futurism on there and it's really difficult because one of virus is europe's worst
3:13 am
public health disaster in over a century. as you can see winter in the 3rd wave is a wave upon us even hoping that this late to fold out move to unity and help but 1000000 vaccinations is only a small fraction of the 17000000 adults here when from once over the age of 60 if that is the way that paris plans to beat this to be still virus it needs to act and act fast. terrorists just like you know as well off the break coming up we'll be looking deeper into the effects over year of cove it all in france how is it left the country was going to go it's coming up. to.
