9:01 am
in response to append to can statement ramping up tensions with moscow. i'm french far. i cheerless eric zebo. i notice he's officially entering the 2022 presidential campaign despite losing political points of light to some great public scandal. ah, oh, why from all these h q in moscow? it's kevin, over with you here for the next half hour. thanks for checking in. i was appreciate it. so that developing story 1st, the origins and timing of this latest covey varian are in question. today of the dutch health officials say that our micron was detected in the netherlands before it was reported in south africa. it's unclear so far. if the infected people had actually visited africa before, how exactly this new variant appeared in the netherlands there for, but it could also me,
9:02 am
there are many more cases around the world. i got the latest small correspondence paula slayer in south africa. and we started with peter all over in europe, this announcement and the new information that's coming forward is everybody. welcome to here in south africa. this is because on the saw people falling in the south african variance and they will say, no, it's not me. and i'll find 2 and i, expert folk songs that they were able to get up to. to be honest enough to hold the world hope gratian and very much the feeling here in south africa for the last few days following these travel ban has been that south africa actually being left by the speakers. all concerning what we have seen is that in fiction care in south africa have morning suppose in recent days, the last official figures who have awful sundays when they with 2800 new cases and the complaints with the 500 hello late today. the hospital finishing that,
9:03 am
they expect a lot of pressure in the next 2 to 3 weeks. and they also expect moving team panels and you have to be in the at the same time, you still have thousands of south africa. i'm supposed to be in israel until the 7th of december. so i'm sitting in a bit of a predicament because i don't know if my life will be able to fly or not. the numbers were very, very low and it does not come. it didn't not originate, you know, we hoping that that the voice of reason will prevail and the countries will realize that it's not just because it came from other countries because there are chances to identify that it's not a south african various international have been say though the latest information you have is that the british airways should be operating again tomorrow, but now it says the invalid has said that the situation is with south africa is
9:04 am
it's a wave. and the ration on the ground, despite the discovery we have in addition to the discovery of this, me, st. still the names very worrying. how has europe responded to this new strain? especially cause this news that actually could have been around a few days, maybe up to 11 days earlier. if this news is coming in this out from the netherlands is to be believed anglo merkel. and the as well. her most likely successor or left sholtes as chancellor. and we'll be discussing with the health ministers from germany. 16 states what they're going to do for a national tactic to tackle the current outbreak of coven 19. that may well be something about when schools can be closed. also something about curfews as well, be paying close attention to it. however, some of the regional leaders in germany, a saying action needs to be taken immediately to protect our healthcare system. we unfortunately have to shut down the whole country on an even strict basis. a
9:05 am
federal emergency broke must be decided this week, for one country that's already in the middle of a lockdown, is austria. that is going to run through until at least the end of this week. it could well be extended until the 13th of december. and we've been finding out a little bit more from the austrian government about their proposal that they're going to him, make it mandatory for people to have vaccines from the 1st of february. and anybody who doesn't go for a vaccine could be eligible for a fine of just over 3000 euro, or spend 4 weeks in jail. we are seeing cases, almost all over the country, all over the continent. we're looking at at present in spain, portugal check republic, italy, belgium, and the netherlands. as i mentioned, frances, looking into 2, at least 2 suspected cases there. and what we're hearing from ursula on the line, the a you commission president, is that more action needs to be taken to try and tackle this new variant. you're
9:06 am
now in a race against time. the scientists and manufacture need 2 to 3 weeks to have a full about the quality of the mutations of this army. kron variant. well staying in europe, but moving outside of the european union. the night in the united kingdom, england has re introduced the wearing of face masks on public transport and in shops as, as a legal requirement that had been voluntary. since the summer ministers for health there is saying it's because of this new variant and uncertainty over how it may affect people. we're trying to get that balance in proportion and, and it is difficult because it's unknown. so we need to buy some times. who are scientists, can work with the world's leading scientists to just basically think about what they're in. we know it's very transmissible by looking at that the year. but we don't know, you know, whether it work with the vaccine vaccine, whack or the other treatments, etc. so the scientists do need some time for that. well,
9:07 am
that's how it looks across europe right now would be keeping a keen eye to see on what news develops either with from the netherlands, with regards to the announcement that at this omicron varied may have been present here for much longer. also watching what's gonna come out from here in berlin, where angle america, the german chancellor meeting with regional leaders as they try to establish a new national protocol for it. when it comes to trying to tackle these covert outbreak on nations and i plan their own rogers, her tackle the spread of the virus search to try and get a handle on its best. they see fit australia along with european countries and suspended flight tune from south africa and neighboring states, others, but every body except their own nationals, arriving from south africa, israel and japan. those gone a step further and imposed a complete ban. japan's prime minister says it's crucial to avoid a worst case scenario. while studies continue into the new strain, may a, back in the government stands to at the moment. i am from
9:08 am
a rural area and i'm very worried. my wife is also very worried. wondering what tokyo residents a thinking about the new very and the you know, so i feel relief now. the prime minister casita announced very strict border measures. have to deal with i think it was good. i guess she took the border measures very swiftly and on top of that, i wanted to prepare well for things like hospital bed and similar issues. i'm scared because people like us are a bit to relax now. closer for sure. it's better not to allow people who might be infected to enter japan, because the situation in japan is pretty stable. now. it's an actual feeling, moralist for the russian, and we're going to talk to melita venture representative the world health organization in russia. hi there. thank you for your time today is much appreciated . so touch officials are saying the on the chrome was in the netherlands, i think a week to 11 days maybe before was reported in south africa. i was already spreading through parts of western europe. should we expect many more cases around
9:09 am
the world? thank you. kevin. actually dominate show can report based on the reports from laboratories around the world and south africa reporting informing w really promptly. what you're seeing in terms of the ology, at the moment in the european member state, in the 50, remember states of the w 2 region, if the delta continues to be the predominance strain. so none of the european member states has reported identifying clusters of on the trunk cases by dis moment. this is why actually, if you go, this is a variance of concern because one of the recommendations is increased surveillance and that means also into the genetic sequencing. wherever carries a surge in cases that cannot be explained with the contact the, the new logical situation. so if there is something new, a new cluster or
9:10 am
a cluster related to travel or something now, then genetic sequencing will give us the answer. unfortunately, you know, jeanette requires a bit more time than a few extra manager, but for the moment they're not sure i would say information available yesterday we're hearing and maybe like 11 days before science has got a better handle on and i we're, it could be 2 to 3 weeks why it's very and so concerning. and of course, what everyone's to know is, is it more lethal? you're likely, more likely to catch it, especially if you're ready to vaccine, to have anything you can tell us so far. i think it is very important that we set the record straight and that to be very careful with the words. variance of concern is the mechanics that w show past 2 weeks, the network of international board activities that are within the w t show i would say metric fund ticket laboratories defined in order to monitor well the i
9:11 am
verse which is new teaching left and right. as a no virus. and when a mutation shows a number of, i would say changes a number of mutations that we can relate in something either to previous knowledge . for example, this virus. this maryann has mutations many more mutations on the spike protein. it is actually nice to need all that the virus is using to getting to the salad to make us in fact stage to actually cause infections will spread further. and this is why because it has many more gen other viruses at the variance. it has the media to come into concert. ok, so i was gonna say the acknowledge, but we don't have a logical noise. it's telling us at the moment that this is a more deadly virus. he wears sort of saw in his book that sorta sorta brought to him, but a lot of people are asking will up,
9:12 am
do you know anything about the symptoms so far? because from the few reported cases that we do know about to to be handful here. handful, their early indications from south africa was that they were very mild symptoms may be no symptoms at all. and that's the tricky. but is it? well, exactly. this is why we are saying it's not only that the lab needs a more time, the epidemiologists are very carefully linking the lab and findings with the cases and looking at the clinical picture of the people who got sick. now what we know from south africa is that mainly young people and this is where the cluster was detected. and we do know that called me being young people is lighter. we do not have reports and nice merman that it is causing more severe disease or that it is morally felt. this is not something that we should speculate off. we really need a bit more time. and this is why we have said that there is no place for panic,
9:13 am
but there is place for preparedness, proportion, and action. i know you don't get involved with apollo or in the, in the political side of what we've seen so many flights council bold is closed. is it too much to think too soon or is it the right thing to do? as a general, we can only say that travel restrictions are national, the seizure and nominate and nation is that there has to be a risk benefit analysis based on what jimmy ologist and biologists to get to know about the very end. of course, we understand that con, indication and interpretation of li words are even technical over like variance, concern causes concern and cool action. but honestly, i think that this is up to using the i chart tempered recommendations for job director general. what about vaccines? i know everything you just said it, but it being such a li days and this kind of stuff in the thought really, but people of, you know,
9:14 am
many people have come forward. they've been vaccinated that they worried about it. they did it. they said it was the right thing to do, and of course, a despondent night because they are in it. we go get homeless, we're not back to square one, but it's not great. do you think current vaccines will be able to deal with this new strain or not? again, left us a lot of carbons vaccines. any of them are doing, they are preventing 2 year disease. they are reducing infection rate, but they're not interrupting completely. so what we know about delta, that is the predominant and you know it is causing surgery and everything that yes, that sees are continuing to use unity and is it likely it will be the same with on the chrome? we hope so. we do not have strong indications that there should be a major or immune escape, but this is why the are cautious. the don't know, so all don't produce are so vaccines all over the world i testing now they are
9:15 am
doing in the board. they're looking at how the, neutralizing antibodies are behaving against this variant and who knows. so however, it will provide certain level including protection for the most vulnerable. this is most important. we need to protect the most vulnerable to save lives. and of course, our health systems functioning. we can also now too many people to be hospitalized because of accident, but this is going on. now we've had this for 2 years. is it going to be an ever repeating cycle of this kind of thing? you think might happen a are about measles, about volume, you know, i just, these are all axes that you have with us not, but that's not disrupting world life. like this is, is it? well, because we are vaccinated because we vaccinate every new generation of children.
9:16 am
now they didn't fly and said the same as the corona virus is there is a vain in unity. we will have to understand what, what it is, how do you need to feel, develop how old bed it's on the engine knob is mad. i do see south, it is too early, but for the moment now that we need to update and to hi, booster goes, this is actually a very valid your that your, your body is the official body. we look to for comfort. if you like, almost all we're going to go through this cycle as it is at the moment. is this the new normal? the let me put it that way to you is this what we can all expect? you think to kind of get a bar then bingo, it goes another variance you word about lockdown again, especially running businesses may be losing your job. what do we say to people that are already worn down by those 2 years in much more worn down than the flu? yes, that was going around those gone around for years. absolutely. what we need to do is to continue to provide reliable information that we know to say honestly,
9:17 am
where we are still waiting for the science. there's epidemiology and biology to answer and to see how that can go by. the key thing is that if the, well, the good you was all the available records, number one vaccination number 2 masks. and based on saying number 3, ventilating, close spaces. and number 4, hygiene that will dramatically reduce the transmission if we manage to get the vaccines to the populations, which is not have the vaccines when managed to reach the level of coverage, which is pretty high and for any disease, any right, all disease you need to less than 10 percent of susceptible population of have major outbreaks, but even with 80 percent you can control the outbreaks because this disease that is causing asked symptomatic disease but we have to, we have to comply the glasses and we have to work together. i've got so much what i
9:18 am
was going to try and get into more quick crutches if accomplish so, please don't be on the line. what about this to mom from nurses? no, to suspend payton's. for vaccines? well, that's it. if you, that was a coal early on, good seems should become a global did. and that has been discussion now. you know that those special session of the house assembly is going on. and this is actually a question. all has to be stuffing. but personally, yes, i think the vaccine needs to become available. good. so let me come back everybody that everybody has access to them. i've seen that. who said like, alright, now this part of the world, not everybody does, but this is coming up to the festive period. what i want to know, no, really to individual you, are we lots of christmas parties or not? it is not about someone else allowing you or know our conscious adult people to understand that sometimes in life there is something that prevents us to
9:19 am
do everything that we've gone. nobody prevents us, love our dear. nobody prevents nice to everybody to see and guess maybe we will not be able to kiss them. hob everybody's home, want or to have a major thought to some there. but if we have to meet the needs, we have the mouth, we are complying. review measure, i think it will be able to have a nice holiday season and you can work together. i think we can do this next. the virus, i don't want to use any other fingers crossed his beloved program. so that was his . thank you, making time for us. it's such a busy times. humility, one of which will help opening nation representative here in russia. a good rest of the day. well, meantime, i made the spread of the new covert strain. vaccine supplies are in the spotlight, just touched on it, then nursing indians from 20 i countries and want to get rid of paid since 4 corona virus jobs. so they can be legally made by any qualified manufacturer. the group
9:20 am
seeking backing from the us saying the poorer countries lack shots because they've been holding by the wealthy countries where they produced. it says the vaccine and balance could lead to even more depth. the direct consequences of the failure to distribute vaccines and treatment equitably to the vast majority of people of low and moderate income countries could likely for the transmission of coven 19 further mast illness and large numbers of fatalities. in those countries, there should be reason enough to address the crisis of global vaccine apartheid. well, with all the crowns spreading, the united kingdom is back in the spotlight for its handling of the pandemic. this time is nurse as unions, in 28 different countries are accusing. richard nations of essentially costing lives worldwide and even of creating a vaccine apartheid system. now essentially, what they're doing is taking their complaint directly to the united nations. basically, this is all about many rich countries, including the u. k and the
9:21 am
e u. they're refusing to barge on rules, particularly regarding intellectual property rights for rich and nations. have secured 7000000000 doses of the vaccine in comparison to the low income nations. only having around 300000000 doses. now these nurses unions are really accusing rich nations of violating patients rights. instead of supporting this waiver, certain governments are protecting the profits of big pharmaceutical companies at the expense of public health. these countries have violated our rights and the rights of our patients and cause the loss of countless lives of nurses and other caregivers. and those we have cared for. well, nurses unions in 20 different countries have now filed an appeal with the united nation, saying that the global gap between rich and poor is only just exacerbated with the pandemic, and is now becoming blindly obvious. not only that, what they argue is that the transmission of cov, it in developing nations,
9:22 am
increases the risks of new variance emerging. now, a waiver on all of these provisions for vaccines would then allow them to be made more widely and then distributed more widely as well. it would improved the global distribution of the vaccines. now, even the world health organization has weighed in to this debate, saying that there needs to be a cap on how much of a country is vaccinated. no more vaccines should go to countries that have already boxed any to more than 40 percent of the population. until po box has the vaccines . it needs to help other countries get that to. well, the pandemic slogan has long been. no one is safe till everybody is safe, but really and truly it doesn't seem to be the case for many people arguing against the pharmaceutical companies that arguably operating profit for public health. and while there has been a global kovacs initiative, have these global initiatives really be in that successful,
9:23 am
almost 2 years on now from the beginning of the pandemic and all here. but we're back in the eye of the storm. the feeling really is now that these rich countries are arguably having quite a selfish mindset and if they continue to do so well, we just go round and round in circles and go back to square. one with these new variance emerging was pretty new. so another developing story tell you about justin vladimir putin as rushes, developed a powerful new hypersonic weapon as he's responded to a pentagon statement, escalating tensions with the kronos get on top of this one. really because for us are corresponding covering it in a central moscow ro, their shoe are roman. tell us more about this than what they have to say. well, while answering questions from the participants of the russia calling economic forum here in moscow, vladimir putin questions and nato's a potential,
9:24 am
a weapons placements in eastern europe. and he warns of the consequences that may follow. in particular, he wondered if nato miss ailes could reach the russian capital in about 5 minutes. then now, what reactions they expect from the kremlin? now, russian presidents are followed up by saying that the country will soon have a mock 9 hypersonic weapons. and he did so in response to one of the questions about the so called the red lines in ukraine and that natal steps that led to the current tensions between moscow and the western military alliance. less of a lesson to be specially for okay. if miss al sites a pair on the territory of ukraine than the flight time of missiles to moscow will be 7 to 10 minutes. and the case of hypersonic weapons 5 minutes. imagine that. and what else can we do? we will be forced to create seamless sites as
9:25 am
a reaction to those who threaten us in this way. and we can do it now because we have successfully tested a hypersonic missile. and at the beginning of the year, we already have new c based missiles in service, which can travel at speeds to mach 9. the flight time for these missiles will also be 5 minutes. why we doing all this? creating such threats for us is the red line, but i hope it doesn't come to that. i hope that common sense and the joint responsibility for all countries and for the well community will prevail ah, well, the so called a russian aggression seems to be dominating the hearts and minds of fall. western politicians are earlier, the pentagon said, that's a russia is a, is planning and the imminent attack on ukraine. and that's been echoed by the statements in the pentagon and the u. s. officials as well. let's have
9:26 am
a listen. the global posture of you strengthens the combat, credible deterrent against russian aggression in europe, and enables nato forces to operate more effectively based on an initial global posture of u assessment and a recommendation from secretary austin. in february 2021, president biden rescinded the 25000 active duty force cap in germany. that was established by the previous administration. we continued to watch with great concern movements by russian military units and near the ukraine border. meanwhile, russian defense ministry continues to records in nato forces, movements and here is said borders. and the these include, according to the defense ministry and fries off a missile equipped warship, sansa flights of american strategic warplanes that had become more and more
9:27 am
frequent. so also a large scale exercises including unscheduled warrants and are also being conducted and mosque also says that the united states rehearsed nuclear strikes against russia this november. meanwhile, the pentagon responded to that by saying that their drills were announced to publicly at the time. and they all up here to international protocols so well as they come on mac forum. earlier on the tuesday, a russian presidency, questions a white natal felt the need to expand in eastern europe with the anti missile systems. and he also said that the relationship between kremlin and nato was almost idyllic back in the mid ninety's, whom rubik also thanks to bring this up to speed. the news here from france, french right wing t, v pundit are examples, announced his candidacy for next year's presidential election. but despite his
9:28 am
popularity public scandals of heard his writings to shala dimansky is got the latest on it. the would be bad for you. french politics has announced, tease officially running to become the next president of frogs. this is eric simile, who's a highly divisive figure here in the country, but as also in the last few months, showing that who could gain a substantial following and read and shake up this race. now he's setting out why, who should leave france by the interview? people spoke with you haven't moved and yet you don't feel at home. you haven't abandoned your country, but it feels like your country has abandoned you. you feel like foreigners in your own homeland, there's no more time to reform fronts. it's time to save it. that's why i've decided to run for president. that's why i've decided to ask for your vote and become your president of the republic. so our children and grandchildren will not face barbarity, so our daughters will not be forced to wear his job,
9:29 am
and our sons will not be forced into submission. so we can pass to them the same fronts that we knew and that we inherited from our ancestors warner. feel a slip of what it now is. a war has twice been convicted of inciting, racial hatred. angie's currently awaiting a verdict of a 3rd allegation, he has been clear that he believes white french people will be replaced by norm won't known you repeat immigrants. does a move has also spoken out against islam, saying that it threatens frances values. and to said, immigrants need to assimilate to the values of the french republic, suggesting that names like mohammed would be banned under his leadership. now, the pun, dates, and right to has spent the last few months unofficially campaigning, as she has been promoting his latest book. his pre candidate show campaign has
9:30 am
not been hampered by some events being canceled abroad as he i to reach out to french ex pats his events which straw must support, particularly here in france. oh, so 2 protests had about me on ever to have given attention to. i don't even want to pronounce his name. who has said such outrageous things is just an acceptable even if okay, we're in a country of freedom where everyone has the right to express their opinion. but to give so much visibility to one person like that is shameful. a premier pasco has we hope mr. zima will clean things up. uh, but the problem is there is been 30 years 40 years of that the state has been demobilized from many issues. and we need to see clearly when we need to re launch the country. i think the others won't have the courage to do it already or something. well, today we see that despite our differences, we all have the same problem in our daily lives. that is why we're all gather today to say no to this to visit us, which.
