3:00 am
and the bookmaking africa direct on al jazeera, all be the hero and the world news o washer. these restrictions are completely unjustified and unfair to discriminate against our country. south africa's president calls on government to scrap travel bands and instead focus on vaccinating the world against covered 19 more cases of the army chron. very 1st identified in south africa, are appearing globally, as investigations continue into how dangerous it is. ah, a lot have your secret, this is, i just need
3:01 am
a live from the halls are coming up. france declares it won't be held hostage by british politics on migration of the crisis meeting that excluded the u. k. voting coming to an end in the home during elections. former 1st ladies, your motto, castro hopes it will make her the country's 1st female president. ah, the south african president has demanded an immediate end to travel bands. he is called unjustified and discriminatory against his country and its neighbors. sir, i'm a fossa address the nation after a highly mutated variant of co. 19 was identified by scientists there, and governments rushed to close their borders to southern africa in response. we are deeply disappointed by the decision of several countries to prohibit travel
3:02 am
from a number of southern african countries including our own following the identification of the army corn variant. this is a clear and completely unjustified departure from the commitment that many of these countries made at the meeting of the g 20 countries in rome last month. and his latest remarks, the world health organization, again urged against sudden travel bands saying it will take time to know if the army kron variant is more transmissible or causes or worse symptoms. cases of the variance have now been confirmed in more than 10 countries. on opposite sides of the world, a south african doctor who raised the alarm about on a cron says her patients who been diagnosed with the new variance have shown mainly mild symptoms. miller reports from johannesburg. angelie good here is the south african doctor who 1st to take the new symptoms in patients who had contract cove
3:03 am
at 19. well, she says the symptoms up until ya cases so far have been mild. so what is interesting is that, that the clinical symptoms or not the same, then with delta, extreme tightness, and fatigue, and the young people that was how we 1st detected with a bit of her body i, campaign, and headache. very, very similar to what you will normally see with any viral infection. so the africa has to take to just over 50 cases of the new variant and enabling but swanner 19 people have been infected. they've also been cases in belgium, israel and other countries. so i to say it may take up to 2 weeks to better understand the variance to determine how easily it spreads and how well vaccines work to protect people. because these more than 30 mutations, that might, it might escape the immune system, or it might escape the vaccines. what we have seen so far is people that has been
3:04 am
vaccinated species were far as it around we had the last short in august this year did contact the virus and its malt very, very much symptoms. there are no known admissions to hospitals, heals people with contract, the new variant. what is your view then on the global reaction to this variant being detected in south africa? extremely premature. and you know, it is as if they went into a frenzy and each and every one out there on biking, a great a high about this. and the question is, you know what, why we have, we have won't that we are going to see a 44 or a wife. we have said they will come at variance. we did say that the variance will mostly come from unvaccinated ivy paid people who's not controlled on the medication or never been to taking any medication. that's not,
3:05 am
that's something that's new. well, scientists say the variant is behind a sharp rise of cases in the halting province. how the spread of the disease is managed should be carefully considered. an increasing number of experts say the law downs and travel bands don't work and that instead damaging economies and causing unnecessary panic, then says the focus should be on ensuring everyone in the world has access to vaccines. south africa, india and other countries have been for months calling for patient waivers to allow for vaccines to be manufactured around the world. so far as 7 percent of africans have received a job with very low vaccine access, with the inability to be able to fully make our own vaccines and to be able to get out of this, been driving fast enough in a timely manner. with the vaccine motive that we are witnessing, and the stigmatization of certain countries in africa related to the variance. this is not a good look for the global not what we need is cooperation. what we need is global
3:06 am
solidarity. and what we're getting in return is actually of a punitive approach to how we can actually all manage the spending 2 weeks from now . when we might see a different picture, we might see a total different clinical picture from, from us what we experienced currently. but, but for now, we can't even cite, escaped the vaccine efficacy. we can say that while travel bands are often used by time to better understand new variance and the spread of the coven, 1900 virus. some scientists in south africa, a calling it's a futile exercise for me to mila al jazeera johannesburg. the british government says it will convene an urgent meeting of g 7, health ministers on monday to discuss how to respond me back. a reports from one the on the con variant is in europe with every passing hour. more cases are detected with the single largest number of infections found on 2 flights that
3:07 am
arrived here at amsterdam. shipple apple on friday from cape town, and johannesburg of the $624.00 passengers on board. $61.00 tested positive for cove at 19. the more than a dozen half the omicron variant, all and now isolating all the present, 100 percent of the people who return from southern africa will be contacted. we also asked the municipalities to visit 100 percent of the people at home to check whether they are really isolating the on the con, variance now being identified in germany, italy, the u. k. denmark, belgium, chet, republic, and austria. we case is likely to be circulating in france according to the french government. the urge a message from brussels couldn't be any clearer vaccinate vaccine night vaccinate boost, boost, boost as much as is possible. because this boosting of vaccination arrays us a level of antibodies and stimulates the memory cells for covet a viruses. therefore, this is the police of the immune system. the europe wide response has been to
3:08 am
restrict flights from several southern african countries and introduce mandatory testing of people arriving from abroad. travelers coming here to the u. k will have to quarantine for 10 days of their own expense moves. some scientists believe won't be effective in stopping the spread. it's complicated that you to imagine that you're going to be able to prevent the discretion of to be agent as resorting to the case. guess an example in belgium, re added to traveling belgium i ended up with a gate and should absolute demote at a contact with anyone from southern africa. scientists in italy have produced the 1st image of the variant that has more mutations in spite proteins, the parts that interact with human cells compared with the highly infectious delta variance. in the absence of any hard data on how widespread or virulent the macro variant is, or indeed any information on whether or not existing vaccines confer a degree of immunity against it. scientists are urging caution due to much by way
3:09 am
of new restrictions, and it could have a negative impact on europe's economy due to little. and it could take the pandemic in a dangerous new direction. the bulk of era london are taking a closer look at how a countries are attempting to seal themselves off. passengers arriving in the u. k . from 10 from all 10 of these southern african nations need to quarantine as of sunday. and that's the same for people from 6 of these countries entering japan. and from monday to us is banding travelers from 8 of them except for american citizens. but others are going further from monday. morocco will hold all incoming air travel from around the world for the next 2 weeks. that follows a similar decision by israel, which is just implemented a ban on all foreigners from entering the country. he has harry forces now with more from occupied east jerusalem. getting in while the getting was good. sunday
3:10 am
was the final day of relatively unrestricted arrivals at israel's main airport. you rules me know, foreigners, save those with special exemptions will be allowed into the country in the world harshest response to the army kron variant is ready as returning home. we'll have to current team for 3 days. if vaccinated 7 days, if not, and be diverted to current teen hotels. if they've been to read list countries in africa, at the weekly cabinet donuts for the 100 holiday, while ministers voted on measures destined to ruin many holiday plans, shoved dick, but now we need to tighten up our borders in order to keep israel open internally. i understand that we need to change vacation destinations and go into isolation of unreturned. this happens in my family as well. restrictions on the countries borders is not an easy step, but it's a temporary and necessary step. in another controversial move, the security service will once again trace transmission by monitoring people's
3:11 am
phones. although, unlike earlier in the pandemic, the government says this will be reserved the confirmed cases of the army chrome variant. the immediate impact of a list, of course will be 1st felt in the tourism industry, not just in israel, but here and occupied east jerusalem. and in the occupied west bank as well. a tentative recovery built on the reopening of the borders to tourist just a little bit earlier this month is not being thrown into doubt. to risk you've already arrived can finish their trips with soon the supply of customers will dry up again. it was the beginning that was the beginning of what we hoped to be the return of the tourist industry and the return of tourist who to israel. and again, this is another clap in the face. further into jerusalem's old city shopkeepers who'd only just reopened a contemplating bringing down the shutters again. i don't think it will. i because well 1st of all, this could be nothing everywhere around the world. not only in this country and for
3:12 am
the tourist who got in, heightened concerns about getting back out. this is not good news parsing cause i hope we can go home. what is the problem? the planes that are coming here? i don't think going to go back the government's message, but it closed the borders early and reopen after 2 weeks. been close them late and regretted recent experienced hotels of temporary restrictions being stretched well beyond there and dates. few here. a betting that the tourists will be back soon. eric will sit al jazeera, occupied east, jerusalem. i still the commonest half hour. virgil ablow, the claimed men's wear designer for louis the town, and founder of white dice, aged $41.00. also. i'm gabriel's onto in new york where british socialized elaine maxwell will face a jury for the 1st time in a trial. that's sure to be filled with drama. ah,

3:15 am
. a. again, this is a reminder of our top stories. south africa as president has criticized border, closes off to the discovery of a new strain of the koran and bars. he called it completely unjustified su around a po. so also says there's been a rise in covet 19 cases since on the con was like 10 to 5 cases have now been found in more than 10 countries in a number have added travel restrictions all foreigners and now far from entering israel for 2 weeks and is national address, south africa, the president also spoke about the vaccine inequality saying it's to blame for new
3:16 am
variance. the emergence of the army con variant should be a wake up call to the world. that vaccine inequality cannot be allowed to continue until everyone is vaccinated. everyone will continue to be at risk until everyone is vaccinated. we should expect that more variant will keep on emerging. i'll tell us infectious disease official entity found she has been meeting the u. s. president found, she told joe biden, they should have definitive information about the on the con variant in about 2 weeks. my car has more from washington. well, president biden has been meeting with them, but virtually while he's been on holiday and tucker, he returned to the white house today. and soon off his return, he met in person with his chief medical advisor, doctor anthony, and the rest of his coven team. the white house been released the statement saying
3:17 am
that the president was informed that it will take 2 weeks to be able to verify the transmitter realty, the severity and other characteristics of this new variant. doctor anthony, she also told the president that it's absolutely essential that everybody gets fascinated, who isn't, and very importantly, that all those at all to vaccinated and retrieve their last shot some 6 months ago should get a booster. dr. policy saying that this boost a shot could be absolutely critical in determining the disability severity of the cobit virus. doctor making very clear to that vaccinations clearly while they may not actually stop the virus. do certainly make the patients feel a lot better. should they contract it? so that was the message from the chief medical adviser to president biden. the president himself is due to speak publicly to the nation on the new variant in the
3:18 am
course of tomorrow. or the lack of information around the on the chrome variant is being blamed for causing panic. but there are questions to about perceived over reactions by some politicians. scientists and the media come on. santa maria explains on the crown is definitely a 2 edged sword. none of us want another dealt are on our hands, so moving early against it seems prudent. but moving before we know enough that's problematic to we've seen what snapshot downs have done over and over again in this pandemic. so in amongst the big headlines it is always worth listening to the experts like marie of and cook off from the w h o. who has said this, in fact, look at the 1st thing she says in her tweet, please keep perspective we have on a chrome. but delta is still dominant world wide, and people are dying unnecessarily because we do not have vaccine equity. or david dowdy, who is with johns hopkins university, which we quote so often. is it possible on the chrome as the next big thing? yes. it is. it probably far more likely that it's not also yes,
3:19 am
but the point he makes here, scientists have a duty not to oversell, and we are doing exactly that. he's criticizing some people in the scientific community for creating to panic. and gra cats who is a professor at harvard university points to the issue with southern africa. she says, we know what we know, because south africa has invested in advance genomic sequencing. we owe them a debt of gratitude, not punishment. and that's followed up by 2 d o d olivera who is from the center for epidemic response and innovation, which actually found this thing in south africa and the 1st place. he talks about the world providing support to south africa and africa and not discriminate. or isolate it. now that's what the experts say, but if you need another perspective and perspective is always important is have a look at this. this is from next strain dot org. and it is important always to follow the science. think of this is the entire corona virus, and that is the original strain of it right there in the middle. everything else,
3:20 am
you're seeing a branches and variance of it all of this over here. that's beta, right? all of this, these 3 are actually delta or it's not just one strain of delta. there are 3 prominent ones and on you one on the current is just this small one over here. there is still so much for us to learn about that while in the grand scheme of things, small variance. all the other news now the conflict in ethiopia is ti gray state continues to spread to other areas including north eastern, a fall, a region where most imports come through. mohammed thought the walk from us is the channel edges. it arabic is the 1st journalist from an international news channel to gain access to the region since the fighting began. not been met in a different model is set up. we are now with the city of schieffer strategic city that separates the regions of the far hara. it's also not far from the t grey region. it was the main stronghold of the t grey frontrunner,

which controlled this strategic area and the manifestations of the fight in a very clear around. this was a major fighting front. there's been a large number of killings and a large displacement movement. the situation is still chaotic and difficult. everyone around us has been turned into an armed person. it could be militia members, a federal soldiers. still, most of the residents are civilians. this is the strategic shift for a city which was the center of the fighting between the fighter of the t great front and forces from afar supported by the federal government. mom about our call . jeff, for him either on a pause or closed in honduras, where people are choosing who will replace president one, orlando hernandez, his time in office has been played by chronic unemployment, violence and allegations of corruption left his candidates. jamara castro is hoping

3:23 am
there's a huge mistrust of the electoral process here in the country. and that has to do more so than anything else. with what happened in the last elections, we have to consider that the national, the ruling, national party of hunters, has been in power for the last 12 years. the last presidential election in 2017, according to international electoral observers, was able to claim victory under fraudulent circumstances. so there are many who have that large mistrust of the electoral process. now as a result of that, what that large voter turnout may be, an indication that people are more optimistic this time around a fraud says in won't be held hostage by the u. k. domestic politics on migration. european leaders attended an emergency summit on the issue in the french for city of cali, but the british were not invited. the meeting was called off to 27 people died while trying to cross the english channel. rory challenge reports from cali. they

3:29 am
example of one of the most horrific and long enduring patterns of sex trafficking and child exploitation. there are so many victims and what's particularly disturbing about the case is how open they operated. and how many people knew, and how many people they involved in this exploitation scheme, maxwell has pleaded not guilty and denies all the charges. her legal team will try to cast doubt on the allegations and the testimony based on evidence that happened more than 20 years ago. the trial is expected the last 6 weeks, if convicted maxwell faces up to 80 years in prison. gabriel's hondo al jazeera, new york, internationally renowned fashioned design of virgil ablow, has died at the age of 41 statement on social media. his family said he'd been diagnosed with a raf form of cancer. 2 years ago,
