1:03 pm
now in the 0.8 trains which is a marker of things slowing down and the test positivity rate which ought to be below 5 is now somewhere between 2.5 and 3 varying across the states so these are the great sports however as we have seen a bit other countries both in europe and in the u.s. there have been resurgence of cases and therefore the surveillance and visual needs to be maintained but as my next question how vigilant is india in its response and also in planning for a potential 2nd or 3rd wave whether all the states are in a state of preparedness on the plus side there haven't really been any indication of even at its peak the health system getting overwhelmed by any measure.
1:04 pm

1:05 pm
undertaking that's right this is the phase one which would be completed by july 2021 according to current plans that's a total of $600000000.00 those across the country it to those as per person there is an elaborate mechanism of preparation going on in a cascaded manner national state district and down to the block. india is strong on its immunization program the fundamentals are good there is. enough preparedness on the vaccine logistic side. teams are being trained in other words a whole range of preparations is going on the choice of vaccine is expected soon and to avoid any confusion because there are 2 of those as each district would be assigned one particular vaccine the brands will not be mixed and there is
1:06 pm
also a. range of measures for strengthening the surveillance system for adverse events that may follow the immunization which is going to be very crucial a massive undertaking thank you so much for a time epidemiologist. think in the us a 2nd vaccine has got the green line i said with mass an occupation expected to stop within days its approval came just after the vice president was given the pfizer back saying on live television reports from the white house. right this was a very public would have confidence in the coronavirus vaccine. the vice president his wife and the u.s. surgeon general getting an injection live on t.v. they want to assure americans that the vaccine works and it's safe the american people deserve to know that we've never been more prepared to combat the coronavirus than we are today and even when we see cases rising in hospitalizations
1:07 pm
rising and heartbreaking losses will continue to marshal the resources that we've secured as a nation including a safe and effective vaccine to meet this moment. senior members of the white house coronavirus team were also at the event the most recognizable dr anthony insisting the vaccines are finally providing a light at the end of what's been a very long tunnel as we get into january february march and april that light is going to get brighter and brighter and of bitterness is going to be replaced by the sweetness and we all hope and i think this is doable that by the time we get several months into this year we will have enough people protected that we can start thinking seriously about to return to normality not at the event in the old executive office building right next door to the white house itself the president instead he was tweeting out allegations without proof that the presidential
1:08 pm
election had been stolen from his spokesperson says he's open to getting the vaccine that are just no plans to do that at the moment for the 2nd friday in a row regulators in the u.s. approved a vaccine the food and drug administration giving americans to use authorization to moderna that'll mean 6000000 doses being sent out in the coming days and because the drug doesn't have to be stored at extremely low temperatures it could be used in more locations more than 3000 initially but while the vaccines provide some good news the scale of the problem in the u.s. is actually growing more than 3000 deaths a day in recent days hospitalizations a record numbers health providers across all 50 states warning their close to breaking point and with families planning to gather in a week for the christmas holiday experts are worried that will create another deadly spike that will cast a shadow into the new year alan fischer al-jazeera at the white house ok dial for

1:10 pm
that it does transmits more easily what impact might this new strain have on vaccinations and the ones that have already been developed we don't know that yet and then also what does it mean for restrictions in the united kingdom and and christmas now if the government is so minded to take it this new strain does give them an opportunity to roll back on the relaxations regarding social gatherings that have been announced for christmas people are allowed to gather. with family members from different families over christmas within limitations. this new strain gives the government an opportunity say actually is our let's let's go back on that without looking like they change their minds they can just say that the facts shifted things the red warning signs have been flashing for a while now about rising infections across the country and the burden that this is

1:12 pm
a role model for how to handle the pandemic well they vaccinations are set to start after christmas the 1st in the imminent probable approval of the 1st vaccine naturally gives us hope that's obviously it wasn't solve the problem and realistically we need to be prepared as months of january and february be the hottest months of this pandemic several european countries are deep in the grip of a 2nd or perhaps even 3rd wave of coronavirus french president emmanuel macron continues his isolation after catching its. continued from our hearts he continued to be careful on thursday i tested positive which shows that the virus can really affect anyone because i am very protected i'm very careful i respect distance and i wear a mask i regularly use hand sanitizer and in spite of everything i caught the virus surely due to a moment of inattention or a bit of bad luck but that's the way it is. in your french government scientific advisor says vaccine rollout could take longer than thought don't expect to return

1:16 pm
december 28th to protest against high unemployment poverty and corruption within days the demonstrations spread to other cities including the capital costs and by april 29000 president omar bashir was overthrown by the military 4 months later about accusations of excessive violence against protesters the military step to cite in favor of a civilian led transitional government. ever morgan is live for us now from ca to sudan's economy is continuing to get worse obviously people are struggling so today's event of a celebration or more of a protest. welcomed today's event or for here for people here and for them is a bit of both people say that they're quite proud that their revolution was able to oust a president who was in power for nearly 3 decades and they say this is something that was not easy to achieve but because they were determined to do it they were able to do it now they also say that one of the reasons that took them out of the streets was the worsening. crisis in the country economic crisis health crisis
1:17 pm
educational crisis so they say that they wanted better living conditions but we hear from people here on the streets and people elsewhere saying that the situation has not improved much inflation was at around 50 percent when the revolution started in december 28th now it's over more than 250 percent so people say that things are not getting better but getting worse and they're saying that that's not because the current transitional government is not working because the military is still in control they say that when they took to the streets they wanted a civilian led government but they say that they feel like the military is still in control and that's one of the reasons why they say they will take to the streets and the next few hours to demand that the disability inside of the government take control as it should be in the power sharing agreement that was signed in of course 2019 there have been some positive developments haven't for sudan like getting off the u.s. state sponsor of terrorism list how's that affected the mood in the country.
1:18 pm
well in terms of economy that has not changed a lot of things the sudanese pound is still continuing to lose value against the dollar so there is no concrete change in terms of economy people here say that that is an achievement and that is something that is that has happened because the former government led by i want to be sure has been answered and there's a civilian government in place and that there is a democratic democratic transition that is currently happening they say if not for . that would not have been possible sudan would still be on the list that it's been on for nearly 3 decades so they said that's an achievement that has changed moods here to a certain degree that it was something that's happened just last week so the mood here is quite positive people saying are saying that they're happy there has been achieved months as well such as. criminalizing female genital mutilation and there have been laws against that women have gotten more freedom and more rights so there has been achievement of people saying that has not impacted the country's economy which is their main concern but has not improved access to health care which is also another concern for them so they say that they are going to take to the
1:19 pm
streets in a few hours to make sure that they let the government know that they are behind this transition they're backing this democratic transition but they want to see concrete change something that they've demanded sense data through the streets 2 years ago ok thank you so much for that have a morgan there live from. a u.s. congressional report has found boeing officials manipulated tests of the 737 max which may have contributed to 2 plane crashes there poor shows boeing worked with regulations to rig pilot testing and avoid raising awareness of a flaw in the safety system testimonies from 50 whistleblowers were taken 2 of the planes crash in 2018 killing 346 people led to the grounding worldwide of the 737 max a hospital fire in turkey has killed at least 9 people it happened at a private facility in the southeastern province of gaza and tip off spittle officials say the blaze started where when an oxygen machine exploded in the

1:21 pm
european council and joins us live now from salt on in switzerland thank you for your time i know it's a small thing but what do you think all of these sesame street creating characters who live in a tent city who are scared of of loud noises what's your reaction to that. i think sesame street and their partners have done a great job they have made a clear leadership role approach towards their war here children trapped in their refugee camps. they have created a pocket for others to follow the same steps to get children in myanmar in bangladesh after the last must exist in 2017 there haven't been anything done for them their education has been ignored for many years so this is one of the 1st love lifeline for our eroding your young children this will provide them in
1:22 pm
a court unity as a sesame street intends to to learn to read to write to calculate but also at the same time free themselves scape to plane from daily stresses and also forget the trauma they have endured in myanmar in the back stories of these characters a much less traumatic than what some of the real life rugged children have been through what are some of the flow on impacts that you see in children as a result of what they've been through. in tutoring they have a coping with mechanics and they're more resilient resilient and then added as. we have seen time and again and again that they're here community is a very resilient community so the trauma they have endured in your mom or a distress they are facing right now very basic stress in my 8 in 10 years time in 8 years time in the future come up as post traumatic stress disorder and i think
1:23 pm
these an enormous whiter wall in healing that walt you mentioned it there you know when children don't have access to a school where they can't learn to read or to write or to do basic math i mean will that have an impact you know years down the track when you have a generation of children who have missed out on the on this very basic education education is food to the soul being we have physical needs like food water to live to survive are protected shelter but education is food for our mind for our saw so board should be provided and rangar to not have been denied of the right the basic basic right to education and i think this is one of the very important steps what stude has done so in the future to education be are very much
1:24 pm
sure that these children will not be victims of child abuse will not be victims of human traffickers will not be exploited in many ways particularly girls you know i was reading girls are particularly vulnerable because you know take being taken out of if they are do have access to education being taken out of school because their families are struggling are girls in particular vulnerable from what you're hearing on the ground. girls are. very much. it's because they haven't been provided the right tools to develop themselves and one of them is education and the running are women or girls who have had the approach unity to dev of themselves to education they are not privy to such. crimes like human trafficking sexual exploitation home abuse or
1:25 pm
domestic abuse so i think education or anything education will be and change. in an enormous the beyond education what other things can be done to begin to address the kind of trauma that these children have faced and to be able to help them as they continue their journey on to help their development in such a crucial time in their lives and community must realize what they're all in your community what they're looking at children have thought me amar in 2012 and 0 in early years they have to really realize that something horrible has happened to them therefore it is very important that accountability is adverse at the same time access to not only education but quality education is very important here we are talking about. early child education but we should not forget children who are above the age of 1213 are our
1:26 pm
youth they also need access to education to higher education that's why it's very important only if we provide access to education many problems can be solved so our continuity access to education access to freedom of movement even inside the camps in bangladesh thank you so much your time we have to leave it there dr and you to shop there live from seoul a town in switzerland thank you very much. it all seen as a relatively new development in zimbabwe some national parks are using drones to patrol vast areas and deter would be poachers which also has more from long in the northwest of the country. with zimbabwe's economy further damaged by the pandemic patrolling its biggest game reserve is a challenge to make up shortfalls in funding. drones are now being used in

1:28 pm
nativity have declined this year thanks to the use of drones the introduction of tougher sentences on poachers and the shift to kill policy covered 911 restrictions have also deterred local and foreign poachers i think there is directions in terms of movement of people but as a whole played a big role in terms of full. pushing. care flows. movement rather blocks. the number of people who come to the same was normally most of the people come they came long long long long long distances from various places according to statistics from the government agencies in parks this year 20 elephants were killed by poachers down from 30 killings recorded last year and only 8 rhinos down from 29 to 2019 officials say that's a big step towards conservation efforts not just in zimbabwe but the whole region how to meet us al-jazeera wangel. some of the weather has evidence

1:37 pm
secure a 2nd term it was hard has covered the situation in central african republic extensively he joins me from senegal for an update nicholas now these armed groups have come together to form a coalition just give us the context here who are they why have they done this and what impact will it have. well kim they call themselves the coalition for patriotic change and it's it's a mishmash of groups that had signed the peace agreement in 2019 in khartoum. armed groups that once fought each other united now advancing towards the capital bank you know they're there hundreds of kilometers away but it's it's beyond a political movement it's really an armed group movement and they are in a house with the lack of movement towards that peace agreement remember. the president at that time had promised to give them more agency more roles into the government and also more money they haven't received any of that and so you have influential groups such as. who is one of the leaders of these armed groups.
1:38 pm
they were members of the select group that took over power back in 2013 but you also have forces that were fighting them that have united with them which are you know the. because you also have the defense forces the full on the defense forces that force and you've got 7 armed groups in total and they've called in a communique for action so what that means is that their troops are moving slowly but surely towards the capital now they're not trying to take over power but they just want to put pressure on the president and on the governments just days before the presidential election speaking of elections a lot of people organizations the u.n. included a voicing concerns about the upcoming vote what. well you know the music it has a 13000 strong force remember in the past they've been accused of sexual violence

1:40 pm
a real call for appeasement ahead of this vote remember this vote is taking place in a country where most people are dependent on humanitarian aid the norwegian roof refugee council calls as one of the most neglected conflict in the world we have millions of people displaced in a country that's the size of texas that's rich in diamond and gold and so this is where these armed groups come in play that they control a large swath of the country we've been on the ground inflates is where there is no un forces there is no government but just armed forces that are holding power holding hostage hundreds of thousands of people on the ground so this election is playing out in a difficult context for the central african republic and another piece of information came that's interesting we've seen a campaign of information or dissent from ation both by the russians and the french the former colonial power to intervene in 2013. facebook has removed several
