10:01 am
surgeon covert 19 fatalities in brazil so the death rate may soon break the record january wave in america the program we hear from the professor who sounded the alarm. if we don't do anything we could be. a story tragedy i mean the problem. largest humanitarian tragedy of the 21st century. it is just after 5 pm here in moscow and a very warm welcome to come your top stories on our. the european court of human rights has ruled that compulsory vaccinations for children do not violate the human rights convention and can be regarded as necessary the ruling is unrelated to the current global. program however there are fears it might set a precedent our europe correspondent peter all of us details this case in fact
10:02 am
started long before anybody had ever heard of covert 91st time it appeared in the european court of human rights. was 'd in 2013 it already been going through the court systems in the czech republic for a long time before that the complaint was brought by families in the czech republic who'd either being fined or their children had been refused entry to early years education kindergartens and nursery schools because they hadn't been vaccinated by their parents and their parents refused to have them vaccinated what the court ruled on thursday was that finding all of those parents on the floor of the compulsory vaccination program in the czech republic was not a breach of the european convention on human rights particularly when it came to article 8 which deals with respect for private life what the court ruled was that vaccinations are necessary in society the court clarified that ultimately the issue
10:03 am
to be determined was not whether the different less prescriptive policy might have been adopted rather it was whether the check authorized to use had exceeded their wide margin of appreciation in this area they concluded that the impugn measures could be regarded as being necessary in a democratic society the rules in the czech republic that dissimilar from other nations in the e.u. as well as many other nations around the world if you're sending children to kindergartens or nursery schools they have to be vaccinated against 9 different illnesses and diseases now these include incredibly serious things like measles hooping cough hepatitis b. tetanus as well as now what the court ruled on thursday and this was the 1st time that the european court of human rights has ever got involved in compulsory vaccination programs and made a ruling on them but what they said that it was in the best interest of children
10:04 am
that they receive these vaccinations before they go into these nursery school in kindergarten classes and start mixing with all the children. the judgment emphasizes that in all decisions concerning children the best interests must be of paramount importance of regards we mean a zation the objective has to be that every child is protected against serious diseases through vaccination or by virtue of herd immunity the check health policy could therefore be said to be consistent with the best interests of the children who were its focus or while the ruling on thursday makes no reference whatsoever to covert 1000 or the current situation we all find ourselves in the covert 19 pandemic has been 34 anti vax conspiracy theorists with numerous conspiracy theories abound both online and elsewhere many of them relating to potential forced vaccination now what this ruling on thursday does from the european court of human rights is it sets precedent that obligatory vaccinations
10:05 am
don't contravene the european court on human rights what it does not do in any way is give any european nation the right to start forcing vaccinations on any of its citizens of course it coming out during this huge vaccination program we're all going through with vaccines throughout the news all over the world right now this is why this particular ruling from one of europe's top courts has made top billing in the news. so benefits quote outweigh the risks of side effects europe's medical regulator has stood by britain's astra zeneca vaccine while noting blood clots should be listed as rare side effects the regulator has received more than 200 reports of blood clots in those getting the shot though that is among the more than 30000000 who have been inoculated all across europe meanwhile authorities now recommend available alternatives to astra zeneca to those under 30 due to the
10:06 am
possible blood clot link 80 people in the country have suffered clotting after a dose with 19 deaths but britain's regulator is following the rhetoric over the european medicines agency also says but i guess the. the takeaway the message that europe's health authorities want to leave you with is that it's still worth it the benefits outweigh the risks the benefits outweigh the risks how does become almost a slogan for the after they make a covert vaccine earth portrait cases of unusual blood clotting following vaccination with the astra zeneca vaccine should be listed as possible side effects of the vaccine it's important starts both vaccinated people and health care professionals are aware of the signs and symptoms of these unusual blood clotting disorder so that they could be spotted quickly to minimize any possible risks so
10:07 am
why did it take so long i mean the rumors began months and months ago that it was all in the news on t.v. in the papers and the company kept telling everyone the same thing there's a new link between the jab and the well dive analysis of our safety data of more than 10000000 records has shown no evidence of an increased risk of palm leaves him or deep vein thrombosis and a defined age group gender batch or in any particular country unfortunately there was a link and now the astra zeneca job will have i've additional warning on it can cause blood clots and potentially death in people as young as 8 seed the age the youngest deceased and still they say it's worth it unless of course you can go and get another job in which case probably best to go for that their words adults who are aged 18 to 29 years old who do not have an underlying health condition that puts
10:08 am
them at higher risk from serious coben 1000 disease should be offered an alternative covert night in fact seen in preference to the astra zeneca vaccine where such an alternative face seen. is available over a dozen countries only counting the european union have suspended vaccination with the astra zeneca vaccine or vax servia please their marketing department though i doubt that a simple rebranding is going to cleanse their reputation i would definitely say it's a stupid move because changing the name which means changing your shop window right in the midst of a crisis rather than increasing trust will increase because it always indicates that there is something you want to hide so i absolutely do not understand how 'd a company comes to such a decision at the end of the day i can't help but partially agree with them the
10:09 am
alternative waiting for another vaccine could have cost thousands of lives but only partially they let these rumors steward fester for months before coming out and admitting that essentially people were rights to be afraid and that unfortunately has done irreparable damage to the vaccination drive worldwide. the german chancellor has had yet another change of heart as she fights germany's 3rd wave of the pandemic and clinical has now backed a short term national lockdown according to the government's deputy spokesperson is seeking is any call for sure it's uniform lockdown is right and joins uniform federal approach would also be important here the variety of fruits adopted does not contribute to security and acceptance at the moment the long running covert or strictures in germany have taken a severe toll on the federal budget the public sector deficit has now hit almost
10:10 am
190000000000 euros that is the highest level since reunification which occurred 3 decades ago. well a member of the ruling c.d.u. party economics professor max author he spoke to our sister channel. is that the deficit will have a severe knock on effect for already struggling businesses and workers. and workers of the world trade has partially collapsed in germany itself there are structural deviations retail trade hasn't grown for a long time huge shortfalls in revenue have occurred in the middle class restaurants and the hotel business there are also changes in the country's system we're really losing jobs because of retail bankruptcies this is not happened to everyone yet but it will happen to many more now we already have a lot of unemployed people trade has not withstood the strong recession in germany in particular because of the strict lockdown and our dependence on world trade i
10:11 am
would rate this crisis twice as severe as the financial crisis in 2008 and i believe that now in the midst of the covert crisis the mood has changed dramatically at 1st everyone thought that we were well equipped and then there was 180 degree turn we have very weak politicians they are just followers we are now definitely dealing with the digitalisation lobby a panic lobby a bullying lobby and a pharmaceutical lobby merkel is busy figuring out how best to stay in power the big lobbyists have become very influential. a biological fukushima how a scientist has described the situation in brazil following a surge in casualties the grim prediction is the country's death toll may soon break january's e.u.s. record the physician told us the scale of the problem. the convention to introduce these 3 me see here in brazil is very critical right now we have
10:12 am
a national hospital collapse and exponential growth of new cases in the country for the 1st time in brazilian history and a nice month of april we may have more deaths in the country diverse this has never happened in the brazilian brazilian history now is a national market but we are 4000 that day i think the brazilian people will support the call because they know we have nothing else to do at this point brazil's daily death rate this week passed 4000 for the 1st time with the death toll now exceeding 340000 the country is the world's 2nd worst hit but it's why the horrific surge in a collapsing health system its president insists the nation won't be put into a lockdown so we got reaction on the streets of sao paolo. icici patches just said i think part of the blame is always from people getting relaxed after so long in the situation but i believe the bigger plane is on our president who always makes
10:13 am
and past more difficult making it harder to interact with the rest of the world. through that i believe it's the result of people having to relax too much after all the improvements people have to know that if it was getting better we should keep doing what was being done to improve not as a live system we brazilians are in a unique situation due to the government we have that doesn't care about the millions of people that are dying every day or even worse i even think the president celebrates. well the brazilian authorities have maintained the country will get quote back to business in a couple of months but the physician we just spoke to says it's unlikely the country is not going to be back to normal in 2 of 3 months he may take half a year of war just to good and then make under control let alone to get back to normal life and a government didn't work hard and off to procure to buy tens of millions of those
10:14 am
that brazil needs to vaccinated its people so we have unlimited supply and current levels 'd we have vaccinating barely a 1000000 people a day when we should be vaccinating i believe is 2 to 3000000 people a day so we need to double or triple the number 6 of people vaccinated 'd but the problem is the supply of vaccines that brazil has been able to acquire if we don't do anything we could be in to me 2 of historical tragedy here i mean probably the largest humanitarian tragedy of the 21st century. a dead end strategery russia has lashed out at us plans to appoint a special envoy to kill the nord stream to energy project of course the pipeline would bring billions of cubic meters of gas to europe but the white house is now voting for more ukrainian gas executive a most hochstein in a last ditch opposition bid on how to use the standoff is traveling with russia's foreign minister mr lavrov for the trip to kazakhstan and reports on his response.
10:15 am
there have been reports that the united states army pointing a special envoy to europe with one thing stopping the north stream to project down just to remind the north stream to is a gas pipeline going from russia via sea bed into germany now if this is appointed their goal will be traveling across europe talking to european leaders like in germany for example or denmark and convincing them to stop the construction russia's top diplomat sergey lavrov has commented on this strategy on this potential step that the united states might take he did not mince his words have a listen. even a structure like the council already publishes material criticizing the united states' absolute deadlock strategy over russia which does not produce any results in terms of the goals that were declared when sanctions were imposed now from the very outset the united states have been against this project against north stream 2
10:16 am
saying that russia will be using this pipeline as a geopolitical weapon the geopolitical tool moscow in turn has been saying that this spy plane simply makes a lot of economic sense and it makes russia's task of delivering natural gas from russia into europe just simply move flawless and easier but this didn't stop the united states from repeatedly slapping sanctions onto this project and onto companies involved in the construction circular labral has also commented on the state of russia u.s. relations in general saying that well in fact russia can only rely on itself when it comes to some key state interest saying quote unquote that the u.s. and european partners are unreliable as an example he talked about the situation around the so-called open skies agreement with the united states saying that lately russia has been receiving some very mixed messages from the from the united states
10:17 am
from washington as to whether or not it is staying or leaving at. banding this agreement and if it is abandoning the dream and then only. northern ireland has been gripped by 6 nights of rioting loyalists and unionists faced the middle wave of anger over a post of trade barriers between the north and the republic now let's show you the scene in belfast from wednesday night and i guess laid off there as well the bus was torched and more than 41 officers were injured during the clashes. petrol bombs will hold at police northern ireland's 1st minister and foster has urged both sides to show restraint and the british prime minister has expressed his alarm and called for a dialogue. i am deeply concerned by the scenes of violence in northern ireland especially attacks on the p.s. and i who are protecting the public in business attacks on a bus driver and the assault of a journalist this week to resolve differences is through dialogue not violence or criminality meanwhile northern ireland's justice minister has blamed the u.k.
10:18 am
government for the flare up naomi long accused the conservatives of dishonesty over the way it would affect the irish border saying they promised quote unfettered access of failing to work through the legal consequences she also slammed the british government decision to suspend the northern ireland protocol which was a part of the u.k.'s withdrawal agreement with the e.u. aimed at ensuring an open border but we cannot bring in jonathan tong professor of british and irish politics at the university of liverpool thanks very much for joining us here on r.t. today this is some of the worst rioting we've seen in northern ireland for years and as we've just heard some of putting the blame squarely at the feet of the british government how much responsibility do they have for what is now unfolding do you think. well the british government and doris johnson in particular have to bear a considerable amount of responsibility it was boris johnson who went over to belfast and tolly democratic unity party the largest party in northern ireland told the
10:19 am
public party conference 3 years ago that it would be in total for any british government to preside over a border in the irish sea boris johnson was attacking his previous us a treason mate for signing up such a deal within a year boris johnson had done that and since then he spends a lot of time pretending that there isn't this border between great britain and northern ireland so you just have more listen to them and feel a terrible sense of betrayal over what the prime minister has done and whilst boris johnson's calls for dialogue to resolve the situation now which is developed into a crisis of all of will i think he needs to be part of that dialogue i think that boris johnson needs to go to northern ireland explain what he's done in terms of of the protocol and try and also meet with the e.u. leaders to not you can't get rid of the protocol i don't know that the e.u. is going to allow that for one moment but you can mitigate some of the worst effects the protocol and diminish the number of checks your own goods go between great britain and northern ireland otherwise when we're looking ahead to
10:20 am
a grim summer potentially of violence in northern ireland as you say boris johnson has been calling for dialogue and not violence and you suggest that perhaps he should fire over there and have some i guess deep negotiations did you do you think negotiations would help to fix or or has the damage already been done do you think well little room for negotiations the e.u. protocol does allow for us especially this joint committee to try and work through some of the actions of the protocol but you need a summit level dialogue between boris johnson and you leaders you body johnson also needs repair relations with the doubling government which clean floors of late and he needs to encourage greater cooperation between the parties in northern ireland who were never going to agree on bragg's nationalists didn't want briggs it and a majority but by no. all eunice did want breaks it so you know boris johnson ultimately has to bear responsibility he's the person who signed the deal with the e.u. which was about the northern protocol the assumption was that the protocol was
10:21 am
a good thing because in avoided any sort of risk to a return to robert republican violence on the on the violence poured on the on the violence but where everyone overlooked things was the risk of a return to loyalist violence which is what you've seen over the last week in northern ireland let's bring in the issue of the democratic unionist party how do you see the d.p.'s role in all of this that they were pushing for a hard breck said all these years and now they're furious at the way it's all worked out it is a bit of an own goal for them perhaps yeah i think it was in terms of the u.p.a. that the peace heartbreaks it was never really tenable now the d.p.p. argued the technological solutions to the board on the on the violence so there is no need for a hard border there anyway but wherever the e.u. has a border with a neighboring country there is a hole a border in place than the seamless border between you can trees so i think the d.p. was was sort of tilting a rainbow there and now we're seeing the price. presided over i think the only
10:22 am
force to leave that the e.p.a. now has a responsibility to try and quell the violence within loyalist areas how much control she has i think is open to question because the people who might have been orchestrating some of the violence and those within loyalist paramilitary organizations who never went away after the good friday agreement and according to one recent intelligence report they are 12 and a half 1000 strong so a sizable body of people but i think it's incumbent upon the leader of a unit as i'm with in northern ireland to try and quell the flames and she's now back on a speaking relationship with the chief constable northern ireland which will help because the other day only force was calling for the head of the chief constable which doesn't really help things at all mr tong what about the whole broader picture here the prospects for irish reunification i mention fane is claiming it's now are a matter of years not decades in the polls suggest a growing support for a united ireland it's now the majority of the majority of union people under the
10:23 am
age of 45 in northern ireland. yeah young people certainly are leaning towards a united ireland i think the still some way to go before we're in a position where the majority in northern ireland in favor of it. but in a generation wants certainly could not rule out the prospect of a united ireland ultimately though whether the referendum is in the gift of the british secretary of state he will only call a referendum when he thinks there's just clearly a majority for a united ireland within northern ireland we might be heading gently in that direction but we're not there yet we've seen from the graphic scenes in northern ireland over the last week just how probably problematic potentially a border pole might be because the movement towards an economic united ireland under the northern ireland protocol stirring unrest within loyalism goodness knows what a move to a constitutional united ireland might bring about i think one day it will happen it's just that we're not there yet jonathan tong professor of british and irish politics at the university auditor for joining us live for an r.t.
10:24 am
international thank you for your time and for your insight we appreciate it my pleasure. now the developers of russia's 2nd covert job have released efficiency data the vector research virology center says the interim results are out for the epi that corona shop more on the story with r.t. is jacqueline from. overall the data about f.b.i. background is quite encouraging but the company behind the shot has released data showing that affections can occur after the shot has been given out of a group of 150 people 28 later tested positive for corona virus but this isn't anything to be particularly alarmed about because the company said that these were people 60 years and older who would not remain isolated during the vaccination process itself corona requires 2 shots given 2 weeks apart and only a few weeks after that 2nd shot is given will the body be able to produce a sufficient level of antibodies which is of course the norm for all of the vaccines that are out on the market right now now dr has said most of those cases
10:25 am
actually did occur within the $42.00 days necessary for the body to build up its munity there are still some cases of infection and people who have had the corona vaccination as is the case with any coated 90 job in the vast majority of cases it occurs when the person didn't have time to form a fully fledged immune response the legal studies of volunteers over the age of 60 have show 94 percent efficiency in the production taking into account the immunity kutta to a sticks of this group we consider the indicators as good in addition to that it's believe that at the back khurana will be easily adopted in order to fight any future mutations that might arise and the world so its overall efficacy is quite high as is its ability to prevent severe cases which again is the typical for almost all the scenes currently available in fact just a few days ago there was quite a big story that hit the news that the president of argentina had tested positive for cocaine 1000 after having said that he got russia's 1st coronavirus vaccine
10:26 am
sputnik v. now according to reports he's remained largely asymptomatic suffering only a mild fever and the makers of sputnik the have come out reiterating the fact that sputnik v. is 100 percent effective against severe cases and they also wish the president a speedy recovery so while. action is highly possible after getting vaccinated it seems that if you wait the appropriate amount of time for your body to build up immunity and that helps prevent any further and factions and of course even if you do get sick the cases are quite mild. the world health organization has doubled down on its concerns over vaccine passports noting the introduction could severely sharpens social divides we would not like to see the vaccination passport as a requirement for entry or exit because we're not certain of this stage that the vaccine prevents transmission there are all those other questions apart from the
10:27 am
question of discrimination against the people who are not able to have the vaccine for one reason or another one of the worst disputes is in the u.s. or the white house has ruled out mandatory vaccine passports along with state governors yet companies and educational institutions are looking to push forward with the plans colleges have said they'll require proof of inoculation when students start a new academic year in the autumn but we got some pretty strong different views on the issue of covert passports from our panel of guests one of them are former m.e.p. stating that covert passports are a fundamental attack on your freedom and civil liberties. this is not just like being called as a person of a state or a country which is what a passport is about what we're looking at here is a wholly different scenario which would apply globally where corporations are able to suggest that you can't fly out of countries get on boats and this would be
10:28 am
basically a threat to freedom civil liberties and in some cases the health of individuals as well where you can focus will do comply they're allowed to do certain things and i think people will see that as a cruel it's not that well listen you know for example without your schools if you don't have certain back solutions you can't go to school and so we all there was that we need our children going to schools all i guess will sacrifice and get the vaccination and i applaud private organizations for example who say you can't commit unless you can prove that you can actually do it because. you know we're going to exercise our right to protect ourselves in our best seen past 1st are a very bad idea for public health for a few different reasons one is that it was sort of encourage or force younger very low risk people who would get there the vaccine before the flu and poorer older people saw by doing their fear will actually increase the amount of death another
10:29 am
reason is that public health one of the principles of public health is trust and to make an acquirer serve vaccine passed for 20 years trust in public health authorities any vaccines or vaccine perth but his boss an ethical and moral buy there are some of the top headlines here on r.t. international life from. oh look forward to talking to you all. that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the 1st law show your identification for should be very careful about official intelligence at the point of view screen is to trace trusts the shia. don't like to take on various jobs and with artificial intelligence will summon the
10:30 am
demon. must protect its own existence as the excuse for the. child's own seemed wrong when all roles just don't all. mean you won't get to shape out disdain becomes agitated and indeed from an equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
