solomon islands. soft to days rising against government policies. hello, front, a growing number of countries around the world of decided to either ban or restrict travel from southern africa is made in south africa. botswana, zimbabwe. nam may be a lesser through a sertina and mozart beka all affected while much as unknown about the new army crowded variant. this is what we do now at this point it was 1st reported to the world health organization from south africa on wednesday. a variant with $32.00 mutations on what is called the spike protein, which is what virus uses to invade ourselves. this means its spike protein is dramatically different from the regional cove at 19 and what that means with the effectiveness of vaccines. that is unfortunate. another thing we don't know that people are concerned, the good thing is that we have monitoring systems around the world to detect these variants very quickly. this variant was detected a few weeks ago, and already scientists are sharing research with us information with us so that we
12:02 pm
can take action on top of that concerns over this new variant of shaken the world economy just as it was showing signs of recovery from the pandemic global supp markets and the price of oil fell as the news emerged on friday. and the travel industry is likely to take another big hit as well as countries close off to the south africa and its neighbors. over there to anything can happen. there can be a new variant like this one or a new virus. people need to be prepared. the world and brazil cannot take, can you locked down? it would condemn every one to misery and misery kills. that's the more the economic side of things with cornelia my see of my resource. she is an economist, an oil analyst on skype from burn today was nice to see your cornelia before we get into ah, the wider oil picture, which i know includes what was happening at opec. recently when we say the price fell yesterday, how much did it fell in?
12:03 pm
and how bad was it was so more than 10 percent at some stage grant was down around 13 percent. so that was probably an over reaction. you know, markets always overshoot and on the shoot, but 888 shows. real of wariness amongst amongst crate us amongst everybody in terms of what does this mean? ask you a report show. what will that mean for air travel? you know, some people say it's not that much that will be, will be closed off because it's right now southern africa to, to other countries. but you know, if eve should this very and spread if then the trans atlantic roots and things like that closed down again, that would be bad. so markets are fearing for the worst. will opec b are using this term? loosely, he will be happy given that they decided they weren't gonna employ increase output under all sorts of pressure to increase output. recently in the,
12:04 pm
in other countries, decided to go into their strategic reserves are now in place. i'm not happy when miss opec is never happy when mystery strikes and i would like to sort of correct that slightly. opec has increased o production, 400000 barrels a day. months on month, on month. the debate was that the u. s. and some other be consumers wanted them to, to, to release more. so i think what base they feel that their strategy was validate that base that they felt and they always said, let's go, it's slow because we don't know what the virus will do. anti virus has proven to have a mind of its own. so the question is, at the next meeting, will they again increase for 400000 barrels a day, or will they know? and it just shows that going to steady root might have proven them right in the, in the medium term validates if that was the word i was looking for not happy but

12:06 pm
every shut down has had an incrementally less bad impact on the economy. so whilst it is not good, it's less bad than it was the last time. right, exactly. we would hope by this stage that we would be learning from the past. we because the hard locked downs, which many would argue were necessary early on. i really did cripple hearts of the economy, which still haven't recovered. absolutely. and what we, what we saw when you look at the economic recovery, you see that the, that, and the good stuff that the trade in goods went up really quickly. you know, to, to pre pandemic levels. whereas services, trading services has not gone up that much. and that is mainly because of tourism and travel, that is the service industry. and if we shut this in again, that will not be easy. or it's a pleasure to talk to connie the maya when it comes to royal and the economy. thank you for your time. thank you so much. ca or concerns about the new very inter on
