5:08 pm
to keep up production. by in tech fighter facilities rapidly trying to build new factories in germany and other places but they simply can't keep up with demand so in the largest states in germany they already have stopped vaccinating altogether also in italy and spain are similar problems italy and poland and i was threatening to take by entire prices to court for not keeping up with delivery and then the artifact seen astra zeneca where most of the european countries have put their money on the order of millions of those of this vaccine is now also saying the same thing they can't keep up with production they're already cutting 60 percent so instead of $80000000.00 there will only be 30000000 delivered but the fact she has yet to be approved and that will happen only at the end of next week. well the netherlands is imposing its toughest measures yet with a nationwide nighttime curfew for saturday no one will be allowed to leave their

5:10 pm
kong government probably wanted to avoid locking down one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in the city but the tape and jordan areas have been seeing very high infection rates during the past week to 10 days those infection rates running up between 70 to 100 a day so now over the weekend medical workers are going to be testing tens of thousands of residents who live in these pretty decrepit buildings you can see behind me and that's possibly one of the reasons why the virus has been spreading many people live in lot of basically subdivided apartments within a flat basically one room apartments where there's barely enough room very even a bed they share washing facilities toilet facilities kitchen facilities and government officials say they believe that the virus here has been spreading through broken sewage pipes now so far hong kong has recalled recorded about 10000
5:11 pm
coated infections since the outbreak began in january last year we've had more than $160.00 deaths but this is the 1st no lockdown up until now and of course the worry from. any people is this lockdown might have to spread to other areas if we start to see infections rising in those areas. saudi arabia says it's foiled an air attack over the capital riyadh the kingdom has come under repeated attacks from rebels in neighboring yemen the saudi led coalition intervened in yemen in 2015 and has been at war with the who these ever since the rebels have not claimed responsibility for the latest attack. well the u.s. state department has begun reviewing whether to keep its terror group designation for the who thinks it was a party move by the previous administration and donald trump humanitarian groups say the designation could hamper a deliveries the u.n. says more in yemen has become the world's worst humanitarian crisis iran backed rebels took control of yemen's capital sana in 2015 sultan barakat is the director
5:12 pm
of the center for conflict and humanitarian studies at the doha institute he says the recent attack on saudi arabia may complicate the terrorists as a nation review. he doesn't mention a version he was framed around the house he's being a foreign terrorist organization based on their attacks on saudi arabia and if the news is correct that we had earlier today that they're poor and you had attack it would make it much more difficult for the by the net musician to view this as ignition however it is ignition on its own is unlikely to help and this is what we learn from many of the civil conflicts the designation will not help the enemies inside yemen as much as the saudis and the relationship with the enemy we. really the last couple of days since it's come into force has caused a major computer in among international agencies private companies who are
5:13 pm
supplying food to yemen shipping companies who are trying to carry that put into yemen a lot of them are reluctant to engage in yemen not because they don't want to or the no need for their help but the does ignition and it's blankets form at the moment without much detail and makes it. very difficult for them to engage and a high risk area for them to to engage so lazy is to withdraw and ultimately i think the public would pay the price and as you know yemen is already one of the worst human who attend that disasters and is likely to get worse. without further details on how this does initially going to work i think the situation worse. still ahead here around syria why more palestinians are turning to traditional justice systems to protect themselves and their families plus. the powerful storm hits an area of mozambique that is yet to recover from the devastating effects of cycling it is in less and less into history.

5:21 pm
we are in is a journalist and vice president of the taiwan foreign correspondents club and he says this move by beijing is a message to the ministration. this is a continuation of from the policy and the strategy that china has adopted since last year over the last year the 20000 men have been deploying its fighter jets for more than 300 times throughout 2020 in order to respond to all kinds of different incursions by chinese fighter jets into the a.z. id and then today we saw the biggest number of single day incursion. prompted by the chinese fighter jets and i think this is a very clear sign that china is sending to the us it is very unhappy with what the trump administration has done before it left the office and it should also be seen as a message to bite and at the mistress and beijing is closely watching the monitoring how washington is planning to at sam's work continue its relationship with
5:22 pm
timelines for the part of taiwan it really depends on how the companies government is going to interpret the messages and also the engagement coming from washington and at the same time for biden it is he's administrating well have to walk a very fine line between not angering beijing by very publicly in handling the engagement with taiwan but at the same time ensuring that how many people are not going to worry that the lesser public engagement won't be viewed as a way that the bike and the station is going to walk away from what the taiwan and the u.s. have been voting over the last 4 years. tropical cycling anyways is made landfall near mozambique post city of barrow which was devastated by sighted it i less than 2 years ago heavy rain and strong winds back today areas which had not yet fully recovered from the last told at least 3000 people had been moved from the busy districts in the east luis is expected to lose strength as it travels inland

dumping rain across above way east and south africa and botswana let's get the very latest now from for me to measure who's tracking the storm in johannesburg from a to what is the latest news you have for us. well we are getting a clearer picture now of the impact of cycling misspoken to aid agency workers who've described the situation there as pretty serious and of course there has begun to be these comparisons between what's happened now with cycle a louise and died 2 years ago and they seem to be relevant comparisons in the area of prior nova embarrassed specifically this is an area where people live in informal settlements homes made from plastic sheeting corrugated iron it appears that hundreds of those homes have been destroyed by the psych loan and those people are now looking for shelter in places like schools where they isn't necessarily
5:24 pm
adequate provision to take care of these people to look after them as you said a few 1000 people have been relocated to places like schools to areas that are low lying so that people can be kept safe from the flood waters but the concern is that those flood waters are expected to continue over the next 72 hours and in areas outside of barrow like boozy which was severely impacted 2 years ago with this barely been a recovery from psycho it i once again we're seeing a very difficult a dangerous situation there at a point now where aid agencies where workers can't get out to this area be they can only reach boozy by boat and at this point even that seems impossible so there's a lot of concern around the capacity of the aid agencies as well as the government to how people we know that the national disaster institute has said about half a 1000000 people could be impacted whereas the international federation of the red cross has said that could go up to 1000000 people so so far we understand
5:25 pm
