6:04 pm
the netherlands before it was reported in south africa. it is unclear so far if the infected people had visited africa and how exactly the new variant appeared in the netherlands. but it could also mean that there are many more cases around the world earlier. my colleague kevin oh, and got in touch with our correspondence. peter oliver in europe and policy. we're in south africa, this announcement, and this new information that's coming forward is everybody welcome to authorities here in south africa. sh. this is because from the start, people falling in the south african variance and they would say, no, it's not, it's not that's a convenient all scientists and i, experts are so far advanced that they were able to pick it up, detected, be honest to not to report it to the world health organization and very much the feeding here in south africa for the last few days following these travel bands has been that south africa has actually been blacklisted. but well, i think is all concerning. what we have seen is that infections here in south africa have morning to pose in recent days. the last official thing is we have

6:08 pm
england has re introduced the wearing of face masks on public transport and in shops as, as a legal requirement. it had been voluntary since the summer and 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 time, so our scientists could what with the world's leading scientists to just basically . so think about what they know. it's very transmissible by looking at that the year. but we don't know, you know, whether it was with the vaccine vaccine whack or the other treatments, etc. so the scientists do need some time for that. 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 this omicron varied may have been present here for much longer. also watching what's going to come out from here in berlin, where angle america, la german chancellor meeting with regional leaders as they try to establish
6:09 pm
a new national protocol for it. when it comes to trying to tackle these covert outbreak. missions are now applying their own new measures to tackle the spread of the virus australia and some european countries have suspended flights to and from south africa and neighboring states, while others have banned everybody except their own nationals arriving from southern africa. however, israel and japan have gone a step further and imposed a complete ban. the japanese prime minister says it is crucial to avoid a worst case scenario. while studies continue in to the new strain. and it seems that he's got the people's backing back at home. delicacy not come off. i'm from a rural area and i'm very worried doing. my wife is also very worried. wondering what tokyo residents to thinking about the new variant does. what are the you know? so i feel relieved now that prime minister casita announced very strict border measures. it had to feel it. i think it was good that you she,
6:10 pm
that to the water measures there swiftly and on top of that i wanting to prepare well for things like hospital beds and similar issues. i'm scared because oil people like us are a bit too relaxed. now, lou criminals is for sure, it's better not to allow people to my be infected to enter japan, because the situation in japan is pretty stable. now. it's initial feeling. right now, scientists are rushing to adapt existing vaccines to fight the new strain which has yet to be fully studied and the pressure is on. as the world health organization says, i'm a chron, potentially poses a very high risk, globally. it w h o representative in russia says progress is being made in understanding the strain, but there is more work to be done. well, a mutation shows a number of i would say changes a number of mutations that we can relate to something either to previous knowledge . for example, the buyer. this variant has mutations many more mutations on the pipe protein. it
6:11 pm
is actually nice to need all that the virus is using to getting to the salad to make us infected, to actually cause infection to spread further. and this is why because it has many more and other viruses at the very end, it has the media to come into concert. so i think acknowledge, but we don't have a logical noise. it's telling us at the moment that this is a more deadly virus. once we know from south africa is that many young people and this is where the cluster was detected. and we do know that coffee being young people is lighter. we do not have reports and he's no man that is causing more severe disease or that it is morally so this is not something that we should speculate off. we really need a bit more time. and this is why he said that there is no place for planning, but there is a place for preparedness, proportion,
6:12 pm
and action. as the new colored strain causes alarm globally, vaccine supplies are in the spotlight. nursing unions from 28 countries want to get rid of patents for krona virus job so they can be legally made by any qualified manufacturer. the group is looking for un backing saying that poorer countries lack the shots because they are being hoarded by the wealthy countries. where they are produced, it says the vaccine imbalance could lead to even more deaf. the direct consequences of the failure to distribute vaccines and treatments equitably to the vast majority of people of low and moderate income countries could likely for the transmission of coven 19 further mass illness and large numbers of fatalities. in those countries. they 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 nurses unions in 28 different countries are accusing. richard nations of
6:13 pm
essentially costing lives worldwide and even of creating a vaccine or 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 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 nation's 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 prophets 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, another caregivers, and those we have cared for. well,
6:14 pm
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, in developing nations, 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 weight. and i 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 boxing aged, more than 40 percent of the population until kovacs 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
6:15 pm
really and truly it doesn't seem to be the case for many people arguing against the pharmaceutical companies that arguably operating profit before public health. and while there has been a global kovacs initiative, have these global initiatives really been that successful almost 2 years on now from the beginning of the pandemic. and arguably, 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, vladimir putin has announced that russia's developed a powerful new hypersonic weapon in response to a pentagon statement, escalating tensions with the kremlin. here is our t corresponded uncle sort of while answering questions from the participants of the russia calling economic of forum. let him here. putin
6:16 pm
a question. nato's potential weapons placement in eastern europe and that he warned of the consequences that may follow. a russian president followed up by saying that the country will soon have mocked 9 hypersonic weapons and he did so in response to one of the questions about the so called red lines in ukraine and natal steps that led to the current tensions between moscow and the western military alliance eye if miss al sites appear 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 similar sites as 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 will already have new c based missiles in service, which can travel, it speeds to mach 9. the flight time for these missiles will also be 5 minutes. why
6:17 pm
are 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, go water. the so called a russian aggression seems to be dominating the hearts and minds of western politicians and subsequently the people as well. now, media headlines claimed that ukraine is bracing for an imminent had sac. well, a u. s. sense and nato officials are pushing the agenda even further saying that russia will face consequences once it's at once. it affects ukraine. now, this is just a one of their statements less heavily on us. and i have stated several times thought there will be a high rise, a high price to pay for russia if they once again use force. again, independent sovereign nation ukraine and also. busy the over the years also
6:18 pm
increased our military presence in this region, just to make sure that all our laws are totally defended on protect the instant against and the russian aggressive actions. the global posture of you strengthens the combat, credible deterrent against russian aggression in europe. and enables nato forces to operate more effectively. we continue to watch with great concern movements by russian military units and near the ukraine border. i obviously can't speak to their but their intentions, but we continue to believe that any escal latoria aggressive actions would be a great concern not only to the united states and on, but hello to our allies and partners there on the european continent. meanwhile, russian defense ministry continues to record nato forces, movements and near its borders. now those includes at entries of michelle equipped worships flights of americans strategic warplanes that have become more and more
6:19 pm
frequent. recently, also large scale exercises including i'm scheduled ones are being conducted. moscow also says that the united states rehearsed nuclear strikes against russia in november. now the pentagon responded to that by saying that very drills were announced publicly at the time, and that they all are here to international protocols. meanwhile, here are the economic forum earlier and she's there. russian president questioned why nato felt the need to expand in eastern europe with its anthem missile assist them saying that their relationship was almost idyllic. back in the mid ninety's, former un weapons inspector scott ritter told us he thinks nato is playing a very dangerous game. and there's nothing about what nato is doing right now. that makes any sense whatsoever. at the end of the day, they're only playing to russian strengths. it's a very dangerous game because as president goodness said,
6:20 pm
of russia has read lines in that these red lines aren't just figurative. they're real. and there will be real consequences if these red lines continue to be violated. as far as anybody can tell, is not prepared to invade ukraine unprovoked. if ukraine attacks or otherwise provokes russia, russia will respond. but the notion of russia just starting a war of aggression against ukraine, out of the blue, is ludicrous and nato knows this. we need to put this into perspective of where nato in the u. s. is right now, under the trump administration, the relationship between the united states, nato, was a very strange one, and it didn't get any better under biden. and nato right now is looking for relevance and looking to reassemble a semblance of, of substance. they can pick the only target they have right now, which is russia, there's nothing nato can do to stand up to it. so why is natal provoking russia? it simply doesn't make any sense. feel the come in the program,
6:21 pm
french right wing tv pond into erica z more is to run for the presidency despite public scandals denting his ratings. that's very much masters her back there with this is art international. lou ah ah ah ah
6:22 pm
there is no pinnacle of evolution. everything's flat. a bacterium is a product to 4000000000 years of evolution in a specific environment so away. so in that sense, when we are, the few survivors are then developed along a long process. you so as in to the springs, yellowstone, we will not do very well. bacteria will do much better in that sense. ah, welcome back. this is our t international. now, just a day into his new job as twitters, new ceo and prague are go. wall is already ruffling feathers. there are fears of more content to climb downs at the social network because of his past remarks about not prioritizing freedom of speech. eager is done off,
6:23 pm
has more. the 1st thing to know about twitter is new c o. he may be new as well, the chief executive officer, but his not a new face in the company, per se. this 37 year old man of well indian descent, he joined twitter all the way back in 2011 as chief technology officer. so he has already a long, long history of being an executive within the company has been involved with all the pretty much all the main strategic initiatives with twitter. so it hardly comes as a surprise that this person is well, he is sharing the general line behind that the twitter has been taking over the past few years that the, well, twitter is bigger than, you know, freedom of speech that twitter has its own understanding of this term and that it's their backyard and they are, you know, they're in their right to dictate the rules. his are a statement of from the last year that came back to haunt him. now have a listen. oh is not too big. but when, when,
6:24 pm
but our goal is to serve heavily by the conversation to focus less on thinking about speech, but thinking about how the dance of change. so right now we are still to see his, the 1st moves that he makes because everybody is anticipating what to expect from him. and some pundits have been arguing or that well he won't bring the will needed change to twitter needed, especially by the investors. because there are, they were growing increasingly unhappy with jo dorsey and his handling of all these candles, you know, around twitter. there's been a lot of controversy. a lot of people, of course defending twitter. a lot of people well being on the other side of the fence on the other side of the barricade. but one thing a so far, oh, well, one thing that we are seeing so far that there are no indications that twitter will abandon their policy of, you know, giving some people the spotlight and taking the spotlight from others and doing it at their own will even though the company hasn't always been like this,
6:25 pm
i mean compare the statement of frog or wall that twitter is not about the 1st amendment, and that it will not be hampden or hindered by it. with something that former twitter seo, for example, on decker castillo, said it to one of our core values is respect and defend the users voice. and we're the free speech wing of the free speech party. we believe our purpose is to serve the public conversation and that does take a status, sir. i'm freedom of expression and defending freedom of expression as a fundamental human rights. so prague, a wall also has experience serve with microsoft, with 80 and t. so he is no stranger to the broader, you know, silicon valley and you know, the high tech scene. so we'll have to see what he will bring to the table. and whether or not the concern of an of an vestos is something he will be able to deal with french right wing at t v pundit into erica is it more has announced his candidacy for next year's
6:26 pm
presidential election. but despite his popularity and public scandals have heard his readings as art, he showed davinsky reports from pears. the would be bad boy of 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 it's also in the last few months showing that who could gain a substantial following and really shake up this race. now he's setting out why, who should leave france a normal time to reform friends? it's time to save it. that's why i've decided to run for president. saw children and grandchildren will not face barbarity. so our daughters will not be forced to wear a head job. 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 ancestors feel a slip of what he does. a war has twice been convicted over inciting racial hatred
6:27 pm

6:28 pm
attention to. i don't even want to pronounce his name, who has set 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. premier pasco has, we hope mr. zimmer will clean things up a bit. the problem is that it's been 30 years 40 years and that the state has been dean mobilized from many issues. and we need to see clearly what we need to re launch the country. i think the others won't have the courage to do it all yourself . that's 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. the country, they call them a racist, but it's not true. he's no more racist than i am. i'm of lebanese origin, and i'm here and i've integrated, well, yes. now many have also describes him more as bull intellectual, donald trump,

6:30 pm
