warm welcome from our team here in the russian capital you're watching r.t. international with me to carry. fresh questions are being raised about the astra zeneca vaccine with the latest link leading to further calls for restrictions a senior official from the european medicines agency says there may be a connection between the job and blood clots although it's still unclear exactly how and why problems occur artie's shallow deep and ski house the story. those doubts have been raised once again this time by the top official of the european medicines agency at the may there are no calls for clarity to find out exactly what these links are potentially between us stress and red types of blood clots now see we've been talking to the lawyer representing 2 families here in france families whose loved ones died in the days after receiving astra zeneca job and they say
5:02 am
that they want illnesses and. they want to understand the investigation has been launched the autopsy has been requested and done the question for the moment is to find out if it was caused by the vaccine itself or by the way it was injected but today it seems highly likely that a link exists between the astra zeneca jab and occurrence of the thrombosis we want to understand what happened and afterwards to find those responsible while the investigations are continuing into the death of a 24 year old medical student who's thought to have died from internal bleeding. investigation has already been launched fronts into the death of a 38 year old woman this is a woman from the south of france who is a social worker and received the astra zeneca job. as a result of the fact that she was a front line worker now in the days off to receiving that job she was complaining
5:03 am
of having a quote stint headache she was given medication from the doctors with that didn't help and in the end she was hospitalized and lated died and suggested that she died from a rare type of brain blood clot and it's this type of rare blood clot in the brain that has been linked to astra zeneca by the top officials the way this is what the e.m.a.'s head the vaccine strategy had to say about the link we're trying to get the precise picture of would. this happening to define in detail the syndrome due to the vaccine in my opinion we can now say it is the reason so c. with the vaccine what causes this reaction however we still do not know now both the 38 year old woman and also the 24 year old medical student was said to be in very good health and the lawyer representing their families say their families are not taking vaccination but what they want to ensure is that if these deaths are
5:04 am
preventable that they can be prevented from other people losing their loved ones to . my concern and the concern of families is what we are calling preventable deaths in other words for certain people vaccine benefit risk assessment is obvious i'm speaking particularly about people over 55 years old in france the vaccine is restricted to people over 55 years of age so the benefit risk assessment should be made more details. now that concern is being felt more and more as this additional evidence seems to be emerging about the links between the astra zeneca vaccine and these rare types of blood clots the e.m.a.'s said it stands by the fact they gave the green light to astra zeneca saying that the risk benefit ratio we still positively on the side of astra zeneca and the world health organization has also come out over the last few hours saying it also still
5:05 am
believes enough strong seneca saying it is still largely positive but as i said there is more and more evidence coming out that there are potentially these blood clots as a result and often last week it emerged that there were 30 cases in the u.k. that is said to have had an immediate impact here in france where the reputation of astra zeneca was already on the rocks over the weekend the american kalai said that they had seen a sense of. in the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of doses of astra zeneca. ready for appointments for people to come in and have the job when left because people are afraid of these possible side effects she's not called for a national campaign here in france to explain what the potential side effects are not just of astra zeneca but of all of the other vaccines that have already been approved in the e.u.
5:06 am
such as the 5 is a bio tech vaccine. vaccine but the reality is when you've got to talk to him a official now making this significant link between these rare types of blood clots and deaths as a result of astra zeneca perhaps that's just a blow too much for the facts seen britain's health regulator is mulling restricting the use of astra zeneca as covert vaccine for younger people trials on children have also been put on hold as investigations continue into a link between the job and blood clots we call reaction on the streets of london. i had my 1st box in the good book problem mom's not get in it because she saw this from some health condition she's not getting it simply because of the blog plots and we do actually know someone who's had a stroke since get in the vaccines i'm not all about that you know because i love you for has been vaccinated there r.k. this will be even more side effects that we don't even know about this is just one
5:07 am
thing that we can now they have no idea what this could be i guess the fear is a bit bigger don't do actual problem we've got a good public health system that keep an eye on these things and obviously go be looking at the latest research but while the advice to still take the vaccine i would still take the vaccine that. pakistan is looking to join the ranks of countries making russia's coronavirus job as demand in the country grows our correspondent will report from the country later in the program. we've spoken to a top virology professor who traveled to china with the world health organization to probe the origins of the pandemic dominic dwyer told r.t. it's going underground it's been hard to get the truth for many reasons you can watch the full interview here throughout the day. what did you find because as far as where we've seen in the media it's kind of inconclusive you can't even conclude it came from china clearly it's inconclusive i mean it was easy we wouldn't have
5:08 am
had to go there in the 1st place of course this is terribly complex of the science is complex the politics is complex but look we went through a large amount of data provided by the chinese you know a number of different areas and made a number of conclusions really about what further work needed to be done clearly we can't figure out a patient 0 if you like or 'd virus ciro but we've got to go a long way to planning what needs to be done did any of the authorities in china say you shouldn't mean wuhan you should be in italy given their code without bodies were circulating in italy in september of 2019 way before december i mean there's no doubt the virus exploded in with them there's no question about that now the issue is was a virus circulating out of the parts of the world around that time or even a bit before and yes there is evidence mutually it's a bit from spain and some from france or some from the united kingdom and what did
5:09 am
you feel when reportedly you weren't given some of the data you wanted i mean have you got this rule patient into 174 covert patients from december 21000 the who are requesting. that's trying to sort of do a number of things. to do before we got there including going back looking through the last couple of months before december trying to identify potential traces mart of mist and we insisted on that and then they did and they presented no we were of course only there for a short period of time so no although we would normally i asked for in the sort of their approach investigation was given to us but the doctors continue to come forward. twitter is moving to correct reality once again this time the platform has targeted a once classified video showing alleged u.s. war crimes the account of an r.t.
5:10 am
america correspondent has been suspended after posting this with twitter agreeing to lift the ban only after rachel blevins deleted the post but blevins told us the real issues that those responsible have still not been held to account they said that they were doing this because i violated their graphic content policy sensually because in that video you were watching civilians and journalists lose their lives and the context that they give behind that is to say that for the families of those victims that would be hard to watch that would be hard for that footage to be out there and to that extent they're correct about that i mean this is disturbing footage and yet at the same time it's also even more disturbing for those families to know that even though that footage has been out there the attackers the murderers who are responsible still have not been brought to justice. first released by wiki leaks in 2010 the once classified u.s. military video appears to show the indiscriminate shooting of more than a dozen civilians in
5:11 am
a baghdad suburb from an american helicopter among those killed were 2 employees of the reuters news agency wiki leaks that it obtained a video from a number of whistleblowers over the years the video that twitter claims breaks its rules has been posted by many of the uses but it's her post as an r.t. journalist triggered it system but blevins insists that although graphic the footage still needs to be brought to the public's attention. even though it has been a lot of anger since this footage was released those pilots those u.s. soldiers you see in that video who are literally murdering citizens civilians and journalists in broad daylight have no consequences for those actions even though we see this video circulating even though we see how for if they can how disturbing it is they still were allowed to walk free and it was the people who released that video such as chelsea manning and julian assange who brought it to light you brought it to the public's interest they are the people who have been attacked and
5:12 am
been blamed for this footage because here in the united states are major media organizations like say c.n.n. or fox news they don't show you footage like that they don't show you how her if it is a when the u.s. military commits these terrible war crimes in other countries they don't tell you what is actually going on with this so-called war on terrorism they don't take the time to ask those questions about why the u.s. is still station why they still have their military across the middle east where it is not wanted where it's a legal what we're seeing is the increased aggressiveness of digital platforms where the people who gunned down those on armed civilians and journalists in iraq will never be held accountable for the crime that they committed although of course it's been documented through the courage of chelsea manning and julian assange and wiki leaks and this will not change under the biden ministration you have to remember that during the obama administration and barack obama's vice

about october last year i was still actively trying to get on them since i've largely given up my attempt to get to get back to my country because the restrictions is taking place to make it impossible for me to buy a ticket even if i even if i am i'm looking at paying maybe $10000.00 u.s. dollars upwards and then there's the flight assistance package which the government . offices but all those flights only leave from places like germany and paris. and someone like me if i was to leave their russia and then go to paris if i was to contract out of it i wouldn't be eligible for that flight home because they only take the. test negative 2 to carve it on the fly so if i did that i could be stranded somewhere else completely and i would be unable to even get back to russia
5:20 am
if that was the case prime minister scott morrison out of touch to bring many if not all those stranded home by last christmas james cater again says the ongoing situation is simply unacceptable says in my possible that i should not be all that terribly deprived the right to return to my home country. the syrian government has used the biosecurity act which is something to explain away that it is an international disaster and that's why we on allowed to return home but now it is a year on these excuses of war and there's no reason why we shouldn't be able to get back this is a gross violation of all surrenders romance human rights. like you sounds pushing to manufacture a sputnik v as hospitals reporting massive demand for russians kovacs seen on t.v. coast on our reports from the capital islamabad. pakistan has entered a new era in vaccinating its population against covert 19 while free government
5:21 am
subsidized vaccines are still only available to the senior population and while doctors the groups of risks private companies have now also been allowed to sell the vaccine to everybody willing the price is steep it stands at about $80.00 per 2 jobs or brushes would need to be but well despite that despite the average salary here in pakistan being below 5 $100.00 a month and we've seen q. was especially among younger pakistanis and lines to get russia's sputniks b. we were vaccinated to in seoul city cost so everyone seems very very satisfied the overall experience of good in the sputnik vaccine is very good. it's a very easy process without any pain we were up to 21 days to get to sick and to finish the process. my motive is to protect myself and my family when we feel safe and secure it will start to trickle down effect there is talk about
5:22 am
herd immunity my message is that those who can afford it should be vaccinated as soon as possible. because being offered this hospital also and a few other hospitals. in the deception has been so positive because people would like to work simply because people realize that is the only way we are forward and they have a good will do now this process of kind of private vaccination isn't going without a hitch some venues have already reported that they have sold out and in some places like in the southern province of people had to queue for hours to get the job but in general well it is a promising trend given that pakistan has been avoided the fate of so many countries in the world where a certain percentage of the population went well this event and the criticize. and in general not trust in the process of vaccination altogether pakistan has long
5:23 am
shown interest in the russian vaccines russia has done an excellent job helping the world fight the brain damage the vaccine is a step forward in this direction we are committed to attract investments to pakistan and if possible producing this vaccine in our country but now that so many people in pakistan have shown that they want to get the vaccine but they are sensible that they want to get themselves protected against covert 19 this paves the way for further russia pakistan corporation. a record number of migrants trying to cross the americas southern border in march according to homeland security with reports suggesting the massive inflows will continue through to the all 7 and on the other side of the frontier the situation is even worse with refugees gathering in makeshift camps after being rejected by the u.s. .
5:24 am
and the fact is i've made it very clear within 100 days i'm going to send to the united states congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11000000 undocumented people and all of those so-called dreamers those docket kids they're going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship and we. let them know that we decided to come because the president said that he wanted to tramways that was separate as you know it it's something we didn't expect even though the president said that's of course he would hope as he still hasn't done anything.
5:25 am
but please really the story is very complicated it cost us a lot and everything we've been through just to end up here like cats and dogs. it didn't. end up more than was that we can collect the necessities big by this to provide for our central american brothers who are in need. that. these are people that are once again paying the price of politicians in that i've seen our. i think the matter who would have won whether it was biden or crumple or you know anyone else either of their respective parties really the same
5:26 am
consequence would be seen we'd see a continuation of the policies that pushed people up north that pushed people from their homes as well as a crack down here in the united states is kind of part of the bigger problem in the democratic party i think the democratic party likes to position itself as this kind of alternative to the quote unquote white nationalist republican party etc and so they say things particularly those at the top the leadership like joe biden like us and they are trying to score political points and we see this kind of rhetoric this welcoming nance. pushed by the democratic party but then when push comes to shove we see them backtrack on their words. bad joke late night to us t.v. schedule. nations among the black population appears to have backfired on this
5:27 am
produces to me. the latest allegations of racism in the american entertainment industry. in today's update on things there now suddenly considered racist a saturday night live sketch featuring all black actors about how black people don't want to take the code vaccine no. not yet there i was looking for men need a vaccine not a word the whole concept of a recent sketch was that a doctor was the host of a game show where he convinces a black family to take the covert vaccine all the stereotypical black family members refuse saying stuff like this oh i can't take that back thing i am a christian look i don't mind taking the vaccine and i still have it affirmed it used to be a frequently hilarious satirical sketch show but recently has turned and so woke propaganda machine running on woke him are but despite being all progressive and stuff lame writing aside people already have
5:28 am
a hard time understanding jokes and satire these days so writing stereotype humor based around black people well that's just asking for trouble and that's exactly what followed no no no how did this kid even make it on air it's deeply problematic making fun of black folks decline in the vaccine especially without any context bust and then go into racism within and outside health care institutions a lot of black people have hazardous here and a vaccine is because of medical racism and not sheer ignorance although as it is with stereotype jokes a lot of it turns out to be kind of true a recent study actually showed that black people along with women and conservatives were indeed more likely to refuse vaccination but who cares about statistics and stuff the internet knows best and the only reason that people don't want to get vaccinated today is because of modern day racism speaking of racism dancing can also be racist addison rae who dances on her cell phone to her whopping 80000000
5:29 am
followers on texas. once on jimmy fallon's show to show off some of her dance moves . the cultural and entertainment value seems questionable but whatever who cares it's just dancing it's harmless right well guess again fallon and ray got completely slammed for the show why well apparently ray stole all the moves from black dancers and didn't credit them on air although she does that on her social media and balun fail to call in the original black dancers so make the segment instead opting for tick tocks number 2 star and since both fallon and ray are white . race this is colonize
5:30 am
a culture in real time because she did not have the talent of creativity to come up with these dances but she is getting the credit and exposure but seriously making sense of all this drama is beginning to seem kind of pointless all this is the woak entertainment industry which are really eating itself alive ever since hollywood decided to embrace the walk ideology and appeal to the vocal minority on twitter well that's really just been controversy after controversy most of the viewers have already left or are on their way out so all that's left is the woak entertainers and the woke and perpetually offended crowd that's just waiting for their next fix thanks for joining us here on aussie international will be back at the top of the. problem drugs.
