1:20 am
and that's leading to a record number of deaths. and after the initial optimism of a fast vaccine rule out, if the u. k, are the parts of western europe and china infections arising, it'll be very interesting to see what happens in, in the northern hemisphere as by and large many countries have no restrictions at all. now and back things, obviously the whole population is not vaccinated and, and as they go into winter, people are closing the windows and doors and, and there's a higher risk of transmission. and in both households and businesses and social social settings. so i think where we're about to learn a lot and that is how much we can rely on the vaccine on to why richard nations are racing to give booster shots. poor countries, particularly in africa, are struggling to get supplies of ac scenes,

1:23 am
but their ship lost power and they called for help. this is how the greek coast guard found them adrift on the g and c. they then towed them 750 kilometers, took course the nearest reception center where they could be processed according to e, g, and boat report and, and geo that monitors refugee boats. that tow lasted almost 3 days because the murat was dragged back and forth. greek authorities say that's because they were trying to get turkey to accept the boat back. we sent twitter request for his current this. they never is on the, on the just. then we had the she already bought. mainly we were asking whether the ship is ducky shot, not any dish durkis. whether we should do the dirty shirt, she irregular migration has become a sensitive issue between greece and turkey. under a 2016 agreement turkish authorities are supposed to prevent refugees from entering

1:26 am
and this is case law. what happens in other states, what their legislators are elected to do are different than what are our elected officials are elected to do. and so each state has a responsibility to do what they think is right. and their legislators have a responsibility to represent their constituents abuse. and so i'm pleased to, to represent this state on this particular issue. and we're going to go for doing this that the justices of signals, they don't really plan to rule on whether the texas laws, constitutional, but whether providers or the federal government actually has the right to sue to stop texas. the bigger abortion case is going to come in december, that's when the justices will hear about a law in mississippi that says, abortions cannot happen after 15 weeks of pregnancy. that is far shorter than the current law allows. both of these decisions that were not expected for months, but they will have a huge impact on this country will in the past hour, spend the sign of a possible falling in the fishing dispute between person and france. french you
