shrinking machines doing in vegas is a money machine is a huge cash register that is ran by people who don't care about people's lives being lost. the top headlines are not c and moscow. grim record, the daily number of cobra 19 cases source to an old time high. city's mayor has announced a raft of new measures d, u and after seneca both claim victory and a legal battle over vaccine supply delays and the court orders the pharmaceutical giant deliver $50000000.00 more doses by the end of september. devastating floods leave at least one person dead and many more injured in southern russia is probably gotten off the torrential rains for rivers to reach their bank or we understand now 4 districts have all declared a state of emergency. ah,
12:01 pm
7 o'clock friday night here at moscow. this is all the international welcome to your story. well, moscow has registered a daily record in covey to search infections. now with more than 9000 cases in just the past 24 hours, city mayor says a host of new restrictions are being brought in, including limiting non emergency medical care and vaccinated patients are the elite trunk of has more less than 2 weeks ago. the numbers in moscow were plus $2900.00 cases. and there you have it this friday, and new sad record of more than plus $9000.00 in a whole country like mexico for example. this figure is 2 times smaller. so what is going on? it looks like the new delta varian which originated in india,
12:02 pm
is taking its toll on the russian capital. according to the mayor of moscow, almost 90 percent of the new infections in the city are the new delta variance. and because also we're going to see them. the delta strain spreads foster, and the worst thing about it is that the person needs strong immunity twice as many antibodies to resistance compared to the original hand virus. so essentially we're going through the same thing again, but with more severe consequences. this is why i was saying explosive growth infections and a spike in hospitalizations. almost every day were opening new hospitals and holds to treat private patients. and we barely keeping up with. the government has come to the understanding that the pace of the vaccination has been very though, and now they are rushing to change that. now here's one of the groundbreaking decisions introduced by the medical authorities and the washing capital in moscow.
12:03 pm
free non essential care in the hospitals will only be provided for those who have been vaccinated. everyone will still get the emergency treatment if it's required. if you are a patient with the cancer or with blood diseases, you will still get all the necessary treatment. but in other cases for non essential care, like i said, a jab will be required. patients have a weekend immune system for them could be 900, is especially dangerous. it is impossible to avoid all contact with them or to laid them all. those who can't have the job for special reasons will still be admitted to hospital and emergency medical care will be provided with the exception to everybody regardless of vaccination status. i campaign in the city to promote booster jabs will also begin in the near future. at a couple of days ago, the moscow's mayor office announced mandatory vaccination for 60 percent of the
12:04 pm
staff in the service sector. so it looks like the rushing capital is bracing itself for nothing less but a real vaccination boom. when vladimir approved his press secretary dmitri passcode was asked about what the kremlin makes of the new spikes and the measures here is what the spokesperson replied. the worsening situation is due to 3 things, the absolute nihilism. that is people failure to comply with restrictions, the low vaccination rate and the slight nature of the virus. in the meantime, the existing anti cove measures in the russian capital have been extended till the end of june, namely, the closure of bars, restaurants and clubs during the night. and also a 3rd of staff members being required to work from home. in addition to that, the moscow mayor's office has also bad mass gatherings of over 1000 people. besides this dance floors and football fans owns will also have to be shut down for now.
12:05 pm
once again, i'd like to point out that so far, these are the measures that have been announced for their washing capital. this isn't on a federal level just yet, but we have received a warning from the authorities that all. busy of this could be extended to other regions of russia if that is required. so this is a possibility in the near future as well. a call him brussels as ordered astrazeneca to deliver 50000000 more doses if it's covered vaccine to the european union. by the end of september, the rolling follows a long running legal battle over supply delays on both sides right now today. in fact, that claiming victory law, paris space correspondent charlotte dubin ski diggs, deeper into this issue, both sides claiming victory in this court case, over whether or not astrazeneca through its contract to deliver supplies of cobra. 19 that's at least will you repeat the commission alleged to and it's lewis went to
12:06 pm
court a few weeks ago. it was demanding in cool that astrazeneca be forced to supply some extra deuces. meaning it would have to bring a 120000000 doses of 900 jobs to the european union by the end of june. so in the next 2 weeks, but the belgian court rejected that and set out a completely different time table for astrazeneca. the judge also rule that the european union european commission didn't have the exclusive right. it didn't have the priority to any of the astrazeneca jobs that were manufactured here, also in the u. k. which is also something that the commissions lawyers had claimed . and additionally, the court recognized that astrazeneca had had problems with its manufacturing processes. that's what astrazeneca lloyd had said was the reason for this delay. therefore, astrazeneca see this as being a when astrazeneca has fully comply with its agreement with the european commission
12:07 pm
. and we will continue to focus on the urgent task of supplying an effective vaccine which we are delivering at no profits to help protect people in europe and around the world from the deadliest pandemic in a generation. well, the european commission is also crowing that it had a victory in court by this ruling, by the belgian judge is well, why? well, that's because of the court outlining this new time table for extra deliveries of the job to come here to the european union. basically what the court said is that by the end of september, astrazeneca has to supply an additional $50000000.00 doses to the book. and if it doesn't, it receive a fine of around 10 euros per dose that is delayed, but not 10 years per day. a delay, which is what the european commissions lawyers had actually asked for. but this ruling was welcomed by lavonne delaine the commission precedent. this decision
12:08 pm
confirmed the position of the commission astrazeneca did not live up to the commitment made in the contract. it is good to see that an independent judge consensus. this shows that our european vaccination campaign not only delivers for our sit since day by day. it also demonstrates that it was founded on a sound legal basis. but this is a pretty hollow victory if it is a victory in any sense because european commission and perhaps it's just trying to save face by saying that, why? well, the deadline that's been set by the court, which is the end of september, is a deadline. the astrazeneca said it was looking at working towards any way towards the end of this year, delivering all of the doses that it was supposed to. and, and rebuttal of the idea that the european commission is wanting court today, after seneca has said that it's going to smash that deadline set by the court anyway. and many will be perhaps wondering,
12:09 pm
given the circumstances surrounding astrazeneca how it's been seen hearing you report for the last few months why this case even went to court. and i say that because across the european union, many countries have put severe restrictions on who can have astrazeneca and lots of countries. it's only age groups over a certain age. and in some countries it has been rejected from use all together. and that's because of those links that we keep hearing about with very rare but fee to blood clots. and also in the last few days, we heard from the head to the cook with 900 task force. this is for europe in medicine agency, which is the use of the truck regulator. when he was asked whether the idea that astrazeneca should just be entirely ditch now is a job. he said, yes, it should, begging the question why this went to court in the 1st place. the
12:10 pm
european union is trying to free up travel with this new cove at 19 certificates, but things are getting off to a shaky start. a consumer group in belgium size. the scheme as it stands simply will not work. the group called test shots pointed to key differences and how member states regulate cobra, travel. some countries, p c, r, test for entry should be no older than 72 hours, but others, spain and poland, for example, they have a 48 hour deadline. also, some nations, including austria and denmark, are unwilling to accept androgen tests from those coming from red zones. that includes britain and if you are traveling with children, the minimum age requirement for testing varies from state to state. we spoke with assignment november a spoke, posted for test, a charts. we have been working to ensure that your title certificate isn't effective, not discriminatory, and free certificate goes humorous. so it took us, it took a lot of work, but now in fact we feel we have to be able to,
12:11 pm
to unify it has to be an effective general. do. so we got to have the culture is use different, different rules. we mentioned that you are going all day by a car and you have to travel to a different countries in europe. and there are different rules applicable concerning explanation. time or n, v g or d r as hoster you can struggle. so if the other guy ask situation we leave for uniformity, so it's a build towards the members. they do make it an effective, generally useful group. so that means that all the members, they have to have to speak the same language. and that's not the case to twist voters of approved a new anti terror law in a referendum, allows police to keep tabs on people as young as 12 without any court order. however, there's plenty of concern about the new law. a un special repertoire on torture
12:12 pm
nails meltzer has called it on professional, inefficient and dangerous. last year, experts appointed by the un human rights council said the legislation, such a dangerous president. and i'm the senior national state. it opens an error of generalized suspicion. i thought it would be f now explained the 3 are jews. the balance of the tax and stabbings in recent years have rattled society . one thing led to another in switzerland is now home to the most draconian counter terror laws in europe. it was the will of the people. that's the thing with suisse direct democracy, new middle met. i've, people want to give police state, uncheck powers, they can and they did 57 percent voted in referendum for these. the question is, did people fully understand what they were voting for?
12:13 pm
thank you. notice, i think a lot of people are not aware how dangerous this law is, as it is cutting into the freedom of all activists in this country. and now you can be imprison, put under house arrest or put under suspicion of terrorism without a court order. and i think the people were not sufficiently aware before the referendum. police can now most of those as young as 12 years old, limit their movements for them to take part in interviews which means interrogate them for any reason that they deem good enough. i will be able to put suspect as young as 15, and that house arrest for months and months and rights groups have been ringing. alarm bells about this. let me sit, do. i'm listening to national this law is extremely problematic because winter and iraq generalized suspicion any person can be targeted by this definition of terrorist activity. a definition does not correspond to that providers and the
12:14 pm
criminal code and does not correspond to international standards, which always includes an element of violence. the crux of the matter is that these new laws, apart from the ethical complications of going off the 12 year olds, that preventative by design. and preventative is a very controversial thing. he ordinarily, if you commit to crime, for example, you get punished right. while preventative means you're stopped before you can commit the crop before him. it's it's a hob. before you do something you might regret. and the sweets are still very much divided over this. i voted against it. of course, what this may give authority is, is it gives them ground to take measures against citizens before a judge has ordered those measures, a voltage in favor to protect our population. exactly. i think it's not just to read unfortunately, because some people they don't have exactly the same manner of thinking.
12:15 pm
respectfully, i'm so one. so terrorist and can be everywhere it's it's really the terrorists come from government. never, never terrors come from every but nobody. no, no, no, on the government id vote for that. i know i was not very sure, but i did the vote for voted against because of civil liberties restrictions which go pretty far under that low. and that's the thing. make an all, all of us become prospect so wide and vague is the definition of terrorist activity . if you google something that someone might construe as dangerous view cracked, or a bad joke. if your friends fall on a law enforcement radar, you can become suspect. i'm the freedom loving us with, for me, i mean it's, it's a shame. it's an absolute shame that we have, that we have to vote for such
12:16 pm
a law. and it's even the big shame is that the people except that it, everyone that step don't agrees with you know, the strategy from our account to, for example. but what is coming that the basic can lock away everyone. so i mean, it's even harder than that. the patrick back, i think it will be use most likely against this climate activist. but i think the much bigger problem that i see because this waste except that, that kind of patrick act is that a lot of other countries might take it over and say, you know, switzerland period as well. so we can do it also over here in saudi arabia, wherever and this is, this is a terrible sign for the rest of the world. and so i'm very shane, be with, oh, some people are planning to fight that. but chances are great at the end of the day, suites authorities and monsters lay care for their people. the question is,
12:17 pm
the future, how future rule is we'll, we'll this lot and that's what worries people the inmates if a texas prison are being relocated to make room for migrants after a spike in crimes committed by people illegally crossing into america from mexico. the texas governor has justified the decision by saying that the state has to uphold the rule of law by its own means. unclaiming that the biden administration is ignoring the ongoing humanitarian crisis at the border. is all correspondent, caleb and branches destroyed threats to resonance. lots of chaos, texas border sheriffs say in the 30 years they've been guarding the border. they have not seen anything like it. crimes related to illegal border crossings by undocumented workers are now on the rise. i've never seen it quite like this. we have always had a fence got here fence got there because they're hauling dope or small kids or something. but we've never seen the intentional big 4 by 4 holes in the fans or now
12:18 pm
a 10 foot section just can't completely out. that's really starting to bother me. it's a mess. that's what it is. nobody seems to care about is down here. we're 6065 miles away from the border. and they say that everything's okay. no, it's not. ok. conservatives are voicing outrage that amid the situation. restrictions are being loosened and not tightened. trump era. 2 restrictions on asylum seekers intended to curb gangs and domestic violence have just been lifted. the numbers are big in may. 180000 people were apprehended at the border. the biggest monthly total since april of 2000 border states are now pleading for help. florida is sending officers to arizona and texas to help out texas is now putting $250000000.00 of their own state budget into building a border wall. busy of their own, the texas governor blames joe biden for dropping the ball. texas is going to do
12:19 pm
with the by the ministration is refusing to do. we will be using every tool available to us under the law. and we will ensure that we build the wall, arrest people, and make texas safe. many border state residents feel like the white house just doesn't care. it's been over 85 days, but vice president comma le harris has still not visited the border. i write to invite you to the us to the board to observe the ongoing humanitarian crisis and show the perspective of americans who lived. i encourage you to join me and other members of congress, while we visits with the people in the ground who deal with these issues every day . our democrats were able to block a bill, but forward by republicans that would have actually prevented comma le harris from taking any international trips until she visited the border. pri, of border state residency is one of the outrage at government mismanagement. what i believe is that the democrats are playing a long game of obscure and confuse while they try to get as many illegal immigrants
12:20 pm
. i'm still going to call them back into the country as possible. well, the democrats haven't taken any action that will actually solve probably on the border. those are actions that trump took during his administration that solved problems at the border. wonderfully well, the combination of the fence and the working with the mexican president to get the immigrants to stop before they get to the border. all that was taken care of and working very well during a trump era. harris was put in charge of the border by joe biden, but she hasn't gone to visit because she doesn't want to tow a group of reporters around taking pictures and asking questions about the chaos she doesn't want to draw attention to it. she'd rather embarrass herself by talking in circles and flying off to europe and doing other things and saying that she must do those instead of going to the board. she doesn't want to go to the order because it will draw attention to how much of a failure it is in normal viewing term. now the biden white house has certainly offered up a change in rhetoric and policy is when it comes to the us mexico border. but so
12:21 pm
far things have not really gotten better. in fact, they've gotten quite a bit worse. many are wondering when the white house will step up and offer some real solutions. caleb mob been r. t new york. the yalta district and the russian province of crimea has declared a state of emergency. i made severe flooding. this left at least one person dead and many more injured. hundreds have been evacuated from the city center off its rental range, cause the river burst is by the area surrounding the local power station has been inundated expects locations all of a possible black out to come one local poster. this video and social media. if you will see an ambulance struggling to move through foss flowing muddy water, the alter administration has asked the russian black, the fleet station nearby to provide a motion for the help of water supplies. have been switched off on the authority that telling people to stalk up on bottle drinking water. we did hear from one local reporter in the city. i've been long in the situation has no stabilized. at
12:22 pm
least the rain has stopped before that it rained for 11 hour straight. so the city center is under water. public transport has been paralyzed. overall, more than a 1000 people are involved in the rescue operation. emergency crews are working alongside residents to help people as much as they can to more rivers breach their banks today. and we haven't stopped the flow yet. the head of the administration has been over seeing the operation of the streets of the city since early morning. we met her when we got here, she updated us in the situation. she has everything under her personal control. for the city, we can now say for certain that the weather has come down. but just yesterday, you could only cross the road here if you were to meet or hide or in the special vehicle. there were turned into a real river with cars, ford, and around the military, actually very professionally. they've provided all necessary aid. i sold the
12:23 pm
emergency services rescued to families who are trapped inside their homes by the floods and other locals help them to also provide moral support. the braver once jumped in the water to get people out a similar pitch unfolding and several other parts of crimea. a total of 4 districts have now declared a state of emergency, the latest being a field, austria and cuter, off where there's been extensive flood damage. the city of coach is also one of the worst effect that does also struck on wednesday night when a hundreds of residential buildings were flooded. you can see right here streets, tons of rivers and the cars were mostly submerged. more than a 1000 residents of fled the era, the saying a temporary shelters, the top official and crimea visited the city earlier to oversee the rescue operation. now this video from just on viral on line 3, people can be seen swimming behind the bows. that's actually cowering ahead of me and administration. they will actually rescuers helping vessels move through the
12:24 pm
flooded streets and there will be given a status award for that was the impartiality of the british police as endanger due to woke trenton. that's according to the chief of manchester police who says the public's fed up with officers virtue signaling instead of fighting serious crimes. i do not saying that things like taking the knee, demonstrating that you have a commonality of view with the protesters. the policing is compatible with the standards of service that people require of their police. i think we're past the high watermark the public a getting a little bit fed up virtue signaling police offices when they really rather we just locked up. burglars last summer saw a wave of b l. m. protests across the u. k. following the movements rise in america. during the rallies, pitchers emerged over us police officers taking the knee in solidarity with the demonstrators. back in spring this year, the country's independent police authority urged the force to think very carefully
12:25 pm
before making such gestures. meanwhile, the u. k has been hit by a spike and burglaries in the past few years with many cases going on. sold. manchester's police chief is valid to change the situation and investigate even minor crimes. however, one police officer, one former police officer, we spoke to as little confidence that will happen. but you can police service does not have sufficient resources to do everything properly. it doesn't even have sufficient resources to do most things. reasonably. something is criticized to play service react so that by moving resources from elsewhere into it, it gets better for something else and starts to 5 and he's criticized. we will just go round and round and round in circles because nobody's actually diagnosing the fundamental problem. and doing anything to trade back is essential that the police are seen to be biased. that is a concern about taking the ne, happened a couple of times with a few officers the particular place. i think the place service has been affected.
12:26 pm
like virtually everything, every other institution in this country. by changing attitudes, particularly deciding and then towards these signaling sort of things and wildness, and whatever. it's something that's happening in y as a in fact, across the world. we seem to be getting more and more of this. i don't know why i didn't brief. some other headlines for more around the world to migrants are confirmed who have died off the coast of spain's canary islands. it happened after a severely overcrowded inflatable dingey carrying women and children capsized on thursday. 38 people were rescued by spanish authorities. meantime, greece is now putting up a 5 metre high fence along its border with turkey to keep up migrants. it runs 40 kilometers through wetlands with chaff, until now being a favorite crossing point. the rail going to ask drives on the gaza strip overnight for the 2nd time since last month, 11 day war. the itf says it was responding to balloons that are used to cause fires
