2:02 pm
from southern africa. i'll get laces from high force and west to roost them shortly . but 1st let's take you to london and need bark and nave. let's start with that with the picture in year wasn't looking across the block and the predictable. the new variant is, is being detected in many places. yeah, predictably, because we're largely looking for it according to talk to angel occurred. see the south african doctor, the 1st identified the strain she strongly believes, the very rather she strongly believes that sir. cases are likely to be quite prevalent in countries like the united kingdom. all righty. and in the coming weeks, we are likely to see the numbers go up. the big question is, how seriously should we take all of this? just going back to the widening picture across europe. though we did see 2 flights arrive into the netherlands, where 61 people tested positive for a curve at 19. though both of those flights from south africa were expected to hear
2:03 pm
from the dutch authorities. that some of that number will include good cases of the omicron variance as well. there least 2 cases in germany, both linked to the bavaria region of relating to people that arrived at munich, half or to the end of november when south africa wasn't really seen as being an area of risk. a case also in milan, italy linked to somebody arriving from mozambique a case to in that are all in austria, or another case in the czech republic, say you get an idea of where we're going with this. these are numbers that are likely to increase because we are looking for them. we don't know the seriousness is what i apologize critique to have you as having a few technical difficulties that we still there. have you on the line neve? i'm just really want my that's mean for the free movement. the travel plans, obviously christmas is, is coming up. yeah, that's a big question, isn't it? well, we're in limbo. we've got about 2 or 3 weeks before we have a full sense of firstly, how fast the variance spreads. secondly, whether or not
2:04 pm
a concert of navigate existing vaccines, british medical offices in the last couple of days, believe that's existing vaccines do indeed provide some degree of immunity. but we don't know how much, which is why the british authorities are now discussing widening the booster program. here and possibly extending the range, the age range of people that, that will be given out to. but when it comes to travel over christmas, it's very, very difficult to say. if it turns out that this is a serious virus that could put older generation people in hospital if it could have a knock on effect with younger children, for instance, than this would be a serious issue to deal with. at the moment though, the signals all judging from the scientists and spotted it in south africa, that the symptoms, at least amongst a young people, are relatively mild. israel though, for instance, as we've heard, has gone hard and fast criticism of the british government that perhaps they need to go harder and faster as well. in brief people arriving from abroad have to have
2:05 pm
a p c r, testing 48 hours after arrival. if you test positive, you got to isolate for 10 days, or if you've had contact with somebody who's tested positive, but they haven't as yet insisted people work from home here in the u. k. all have vaccine passports. so look at their own awful lot of questions to be answered. an awful lot of speculation. i tat need back at their non thank you. speaking of god, hard and fast that skull of it to israel high, false. it is there for us a not in west harrison, harry israel, taking this threat very, very seriously. it is the prime minister, natalie bennett, said that this is a moment of uncertainty and real risk not wanting to risk the progress made so far in terms of restoring things to a certain degree of a large degree of no, no, no malice see within israel and so on saturday night, the corona virus cabinet emergency cabinet convened and decided

2:07 pm
