8:05 am
thing, hold him that he's come to. that particular the now, amid the he with the military, with fool, and that is why washington is watching events so carefully. the united states was among the 1st countries to praise the results of last month election. so of course they will be particularly concerned and how things are developing their no assures in the german company by on tech, joint developer of the pfizer covert vaccine have plunged 20 percent. it follows several setbacks, including a whistleblowers report in the british medical journal, pointing to serious flaws in last year's vaccine trials taken us through all that on more ortiz, leah patricia, how many people do you know who are sick and tired of daily debates about vaccine safety well, i know quite a few and you know, what really gets me fired up about these conversations. quite often, those who do most of the talking have next to 0 expertise in the relevant science
8:06 am
concerning medical trials for example. but what about when those who really do know better? saudi alarm over possible issues. earlier this week, one respected medical journal published an investigation in which you could read things like this. one employee said she had worked on over 4 dozen clinical trials in her career. but had never experienced such a helter skelter work environments. as we've been tabio on pfizer trial, i don't think it was good clean dates of the employee sent of the dates of interview generated for the pfizer trial. it's a crazy mess. those are some pretty serious concerns, but let me give you the full picture. these were comments that the journal received anonymously from former employees of one of the firm's tasks with carrying out the pfizer vaccine trial. van ta via the authors got in touch with them while investigating the claims of a whistleblower who had worked for ven tabio for
8:07 am
a couple of weeks before being fired. supposedly in connection with sounding the alarm over quite a list of issues including things like this. the, the, the, the, the whistleblower provided the journal with internal company documents, photos, and audio recordings to back up her concerns. i do have to say though, we've not seen them in the article or received actually some other way. and obviously it wasn't up to us to supervise an american contract or on a pivotal trial of one of the world's most widely known jobs. the question is, did the u. s. government agency in charge the food and drug administration know about any of that?
8:08 am
we didn't know is jackson received an email from the f d a thanking her for her concerns and notifying her that the f d. a could not come in on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f. dea inspector to discuss her report, but was told that no further information could be provided. she had nothing further in relation to the report. the right people apparently didn't know or at least were notified that lead to any oversight of the company. by the regulator. the answer is no. on the contrary, the watchdog was instead quick to greenlight, pfizer for emergency use in america. in fight this briefing document submitted to an f. d. a advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020. the company made no mention of problems at the vents, obvious site. the next day, the f. d. a issued the emergency use authorization of the vaccine. a few more details that might disconcert a summary of f, the a inspections of pfizer vaccine trial sites said that 9 of 153 had been
8:09 am
inspected. but none of those had been operated by vent ami. and no expection had been conducted at all in the 8 months between the emergency authority ation. and the full approval. pfizer has since hard been tabi, up as a research subcontractor to work on for other clinical trials, the use of the coven vaccine, and children and young adults. a cobit 900 trial involving pregnant women and a trial of cobit 19 booster doses. this is a global pandemic in a global pandemic. we have a duty. this is the important bit. we have a duty. we have an up must duty to look after other nations. it is a clear example of we look after ourselves in the 1st instance, and we are not very interested in the welfare, the well being. the recovery of other countries of cause profit is the biggest
8:10 am
motive here. and it is an example of protecting their financial prospects in the future. ok, not an expert. and maybe the trials were actually properly conducted. maybe someone was just not a big fan of the u. s. pharmaceutical jain. but what i want to be confident about is that someone competent, whose job is to have these trials under control actually does his or her job to the full. or at least mentions reports on possible red flags. just to continue with ill use report a little longer, we contacted pfizer and vent via for comment on the claims as well as posing further questions to the us food and drug administration. they haven't responded to our queries as yet, dr. run jeter brought a consultant physician for britons, and he just thinks vaccine development has fallen victim to corporate. great. by the has all made on him is the 1st time that they've been found to be acting in
8:11 am
a way in which you can really say that their commercial interest is compromising day clinical and research objectivity and judgment. what this really shows that it's been developed above the acceptable speed of signs of a, the cost of the applied and more people to the trolley kind of adequate stuff to run the trial. in appropriate wayne is a constant commercial pressure, even with a sub contractor to make profit. so to have fewest off and generate results more quickly and cut corners. in this way, the marshal interest is pressuring and, you know, what would be the best way to treat the pandemic. and the best way to develop the drug a sense of what's happening in germany. thousands of protesters gathered in the city of leipzig on saturday to oppose the government's latest cobit restrictions. scuffles broke out. our police moved in to disperse the crowds. several people were injured. we know at least 20 protesters arrested as well. it comes as record infection. numbers are currently being seen in germany. it's law in

the top 5 countries for dylan cases. while the latest wave is taking a toll on hospitals, the number of patients an intensive care has surged by a quarter in recent days, won't doctrine nuremberg stays. the health care system is being pushed to the brain . first, the situation is very tense. all the beds are full, we are still trying to take care of the urgent cases as best we can. on the one hand we treat many cobra patients, but we also have to provide the rest of the medical care that is normally done. hospitals all reach the limits, especially the larger hospitals, that car, for the most severe patients, both with and without cove, it for medical stuff, we're now in the 4th wave. annette is a huge burden whatever. and right now, several german regions are preparing hard hitting new measures or europe correspondent peter all over, can expand on those. so it figures a germany to not make for good reading as the theater. 4th wave is very low to whistles. if we do not acts this 4th wave will again bring
8:13 am
a great deal of suffering. many people will fall seriously ill and die, and the health services will be under extreme pressure again. around 67 percent of the german population is fully vaccinated, but the numbers coming forward has plateaued in recent months. prompting politicians to fear that a new type of pandemic could be upon us. we are currently experiencing a pandemic of the unvaccinated, which is massive. there would be few karone of ours patients on intensive care units. if more people would let themselves be vaccinated. the big worry now is that those people who haven't gone for a vaccination have no intention of doing so. and that may well lead to more restrictions on what people who haven't being jumped can do. if the pandemic situation in hospitals worsens than further restrictions for unvaccinated people are possible, some of germany, 16 states aunt waiting for
8:14 am
a federal decision to be made. and i've already put in place you measures in the very a must squaring will be mandated in schools. in the state of hassan, there's going to be a new testing system put in place for those. going to visit hospitals, old care homes, and in the state of bottom voting book, where you're going to need to show a p c r test if your room vaccinated and wants to go to a bar, a restaurant, or theater. german business leaders want the government to give them the rights to impose the so called 3 g system. that means that anybody who is in vaccinated recovered or tested could be bod, from employment. some of germany's biggest companies of already brought in controversial canteen segregation, employees who being double jobs, can sit together and eats as normal. those who have nots or choose not to reveal their vaccine status, must remain in a cordoned off area where masks have to be worn when not eating. chemical giant via
8:15 am
told r t. they may even take this further. depending on specific facility needs, a separate 2 g area is also created which offers immunized to employees a space with less distance to each other on a voluntary basis. this will be planned in close corporation with work representatives and site management in the uncontrolled areas of the canteen. the distance root of 2 meters from each other continues to exist, and individual sitting is offered over big names in the german business world, say they're reviewing the situation. goods some company say this just isn't the way forward in the contains as of today. now distinction is made between and vaccinated and vaccinated are recovered and blaze. currently we're not considering separate contin areas, which it every one equally with germany posting record daily cove. it case numbers, politicians, business leaders, and health care professionals all agree that something has to be done and all
8:16 am
bracing for things to potentially get worse over the coming winter months. peter, all of a r t though in 16 minutes past 4 pm here in moscow still i head off for claims of a high level cover op kenya reopens a decade old probe into the murder of a young mother, allegedly at the hands of a british soldier. that's coming up actually. oh, driven by dreamer shapes bankers and those with
8:17 am
dares sinks. we dare to ask ah ah mm ah, hello again. it may be a global attempt to save the world from climate change,
8:18 am
but the huge comp $26.00 summit in scotland is not impressing credit tune berg. the swedish activist lash died south the events while addressing crowds on the friday used for future marching glasgow. it is not a secret that call $26.00 is a failure. it should be obvious that we cannot soul a crisis with the same methods that got into it in the 1st place. protest events have also been held are on the world to coincide with cub. 26 with demonstrators echoing gratitude and bergs, call forth concrete action from those in power. oh mm
8:19 am
hm. oh, i come up at $26.00 conferences now into it's 2nd week kicking off the event, the british prime minister warrant of a doomsday scenario. the american president involved the u. s. would lead by example to you in the fight against climate change. one of the world's biggest polluters, india announced a net 0 target by 2070. although that's 2 decades later than many seen hoping. while the recalls for more money to be handed to developing countries to help with their transition to other energy sources. and indeed on that issue, rti saskia taylor has been looking at how complying with emissions goals may not be that simple for nations heavily dependent on crushing cop 26 his hair. and it's
8:20 am
going to save us from doomsday. i've a 100 wild need as a setting out that goals for the future and that big ones, stop deforestation switched to renewables. 0 emissions an ohio, electric. he nasa teaching nature like a toilet we are digging our own grapes. humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. it's one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock and we need to act. now, climate change is already ravaged the world. we only have a brief window left before us to razor our vision to raised me to task. sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians patches? it's easy for boucher and co to promised a ton off the light when they leave a room. but for others half way round the wild thing no to fossil fuels is
8:21 am
a luxury they just can't afford. if there is carl, we leave. is there reason any call we don't leave one person and east in india said that, but over 4000000 others all over the country would likely agree. because that's how many people rely on coal to keep a roof over their heads and food on their pace. the issue goes well beyond india, though, the developing large, ah, you know it's such a little industrialization stage, then you know what we can call one space. our time are we don't that they will not really do live. there are so side is out of poverty called consumption, and call as a basis for the livelihood will remain a fact for some time. in fact, tens of developing countries have come together terrified of what the grand goals of 0 emissions made up by rich nations will mean for then. this new goal, which has been advanced, runs counter to the parish agreement, and is anti equity and against climate justice demands for net 0 emissions for all
8:22 am
countries by 2050 will exacerbate further the existing inequities between developed and developing countries. it's not just didn't develop nations struggle as it is with fossil fuels. it's not just that millions of jobs will be lost so that millions will be plunged into poverty. now, it's also that these nations are asking, why are we paying for greedy guzzlers far away? the top 10 percent of countries consumed 20 times more energy than the bottom 10 percent. and 1100000000 sub saharan african share the same amount of power generation capacity. as germany's 83 mill in people, video gamers in california consumed more electricity than entire nations. you won't hear anything about that a cope 26. and remember, when times were tough when to was coming, a gas was running low in europe. funny how no one was shouting about it, being a data source of energy when they begged for the taps to be turned back on. but you
8:23 am
will hear them say they won't finance fossil fuel projects in developing countries . why? because it's far way and won't affect whether that warm on a chilly december night. though if the budget can stretch, they might lend a helping hand to ease the pay. we want to do more to help countries around the world, especially developing countries, accelerate their crane energy transition, address pollution in the sure the world we all must share a cleaner shafer healthiest plan and we have an obligation to help make no mistake . this is not a judgment on green energy. the goals that those guys that in glasgow are undoubtedly noble, but do the politicians so desperate to be seen as the leaders who saved the pallet real life, what back p. r. friend, me slogans actually mean for millions of people far away. and even if they did what they do, anything differently, there are some countries that actually have small populations but are consuming a lot of energy and imaging a lot of our gap, a car,
8:24 am
one example chrissy on our own in most of the rich countries. it's not clear that they are really going to lean themselves away from home, and i don't think that they are very realistic dogs. they have not met the 2015 accord targets yet. so i think so there's a lot of bluffing going on here. and i don't read a lot of the, you know, the commitments, augi i pledges being made by rich countries. another story to bring you from africa, an important one. kenyan has reopened a criminal probe into her ref, if murder of a woman allegedly by a british soldier, the single mother was beaten, stopped and dumped in a septic tank back in 2012. her family believes that details of the case were hushed up. lead you the had a journey were recently learned that is the british army vault because there were a lot of cover out today. but we are glad that now think of being brought to light

8:27 am
the phones failed to respond when canyon detectives asked for help. 9 years on justice must now be done for agnes and her family. revelation to the tragic death of when jacka continued to become more sinister, it's been reported that a group of 9 british soldiers joked about her death on social media several years later. the family now hope this fresh investigation will give them the answers they so desperately need to her. i feel a lot of pain when i remember agnes. we brought her up well, and just as she was settling down her life was taken away, leaving us defense for her young child. and it's my hope that this child will get justice. it's been 10 years, but we hope to finally get justice this case strikes right at the heart of alleged exploitation killings and cover ups in the british army. in fact, the very same defense secretary assisting this probe into an jacko's death officially closed its doors on investigations into more than a 1000 allegations of abuse by british soldiers in iraq. so with no prosecutions
