7:05 am
or if you just stay joining us, sir, were watching some breaking news. the caribbean island nation of barbados has just officially become a republic on to cussing. ties with the british monarchy or the lady that is c, a dame, sandra mason. she is now officially the new president of barbados, replacing the monarch at queen elizabeth, who was a head of state since 1966. let's have a listen to what she is, sir, saying. i
7:06 am
mia? i'm more and more clear. do swear that i will be suitable in virtue allegiance to barbados according to law. so help me, god. please sit. let's bring in latin america editor. let's see a meet newman who is in bridgetown for this historic day. let's see, a talk is through the significance of just happened now. oh, well, this is quite extraordinary. ceremony to presents the actual formation of a republic the youngest republic. at this moment in the world. now, you must keep in mind that barbados was once known as the crown jewel of the caribbean. the british empire became the 1st major slave colony. it became
7:07 am
a point to trading area for stage. it made a great the monarchy at the time. speaking about the beginning of the 1600s, i extremely wealthy because of the sugar that was to ship the plantations and the sundance of those leaves that were brought from africa. ready late in change are the ones who are now declaring every public davis of that country, barbados, a republic. what that means, of course, is that the queen is no longer be the head of state and the person who is here to witness this as well as her son charles, the future king of great britain. and she has been watching. this is a break with them on a deeper this is a friendly break that you'd like to have no been, haven't been but conflicts. it's been slowly happening. it's taken more than 50 years of attempts to declare basis a republic. and it finally just happened. now, not everyone is in agreement with it. some believe that the country isn't ready yet
7:08 am
to be public. that could cause to cut all of its ties with brittany, particularly. now that there's been a pandemic in that the country's economy has been very, very badly hit. but others point out that really doesn't contribute very much to this country's economy at all. and the longer it didn't even provide vaccines for the 19 at the beginning. and so it is really more a symbolic day if you talk to dave greg symbolism for those who say that it was finally time to enter the 21st century. totally independent and not as an opinion of great britain, the new significance full, great person to i would think interesting that prince charles is that we can actually see him in these live pictures. but he is attending, as you say, he didn't actually have to come to barbados for this event. what is this going to
7:09 am
represent for him? well, what good presents, i think? and i think that the little with that has already been leaked of what he is going to say, because he will make a speech here shortly. we understand is the biggest will continue to close. in fact, probably this will continue to be a member of the commonwealth of countries, even though it is now a republic. but it is no longer a constitutional monarchy as australia in canada, in jamaica. for example. some are wondering whether or not this me, this day might give some impetus to those in those who are trying and those countries i've just mentioned to also become republics, break their ties with the british monarchy. so i think the movie pinches here on behalf of the queen to underscore that close relationship and hopefully be a symbol that they can continue, that they can continue to be friends. now there is a saying here in jamaica and were expecting perhaps the prime minister to repeat it
7:10 am
tonight as well. she says that that beta is a country that is open to friends, but it is not a satellite of any country. i'm paraphrasing it, but the idea is that they have a tremendous sense of pride and they want to be seen and feel as they are. so they are completely independent. and what, what can you tell me about the timing of this decision? because republicanism has been rumbling for some time now in barbados. so, why this now? well, that's very true as it's been different. governments have been talking about it, cuz predict gauge both the more conservative and the labor party governments. and now we have a labor party prime minister in barbados, she apparently decided to really push it through. finally, there was no referendum, however, and so a lot of me, they didn't get
7:11 am
a bit taken aback. they said that, well, the politicians have been on board with this idea for a long, long time. they thought that they heard more about what was going to be the benefit with perhaps the challenges some pricing with the with them on time because i live very hard. it's and i live a great deal on tourism with the pan demik unemployment is up and as i said earlier it's, it's not expected to make a difference to the country's economy. changed the static additional moment, the public. a lot of people view it that way. anyway, i wonder if that was the case whether they think it's too soon. i think it came not soon enough or the fact is the matter is just a few minutes ago did become president,
7:12 am
elizabeth are not being taken down in all the country being replaced by things. and it was also going to be more of a symbolic figure because the real physical power here was in the hands of the time and date of the historic day. many thanks to that and the see it niemen, the for us in bridgetown at 400 years after an english ship arrived in barbados to take over the island for king james king. queen elizabeth the 2nd now removed its head of state. let's get some of the news. the world health organization is warning. the new as coven 19 varied poses a significant global risk. only cronan was 1st detected in southern africa last week in cases have now been found in a number of countries in the u. s. president joe biden as an vigilance, but it's asking people not to panic. committee health reports. morning folks.
7:13 am
following a briefing by his coven response team given us president joe biden addressed the american public, urging them not to be alarmed by the new varied army kron. this for it is a cause for concern, not a cause for pen. you assigned her sir, all ready evaluating on me con, but admit it could take weeks before it's known. if the current covered vaccines provide enough protection. still, biden, once again, urge the 10s of millions of americans not yet vaccinated to get fully vaccinated. and a booster, you have to get the shot, you have to get to get the booster if you're a sooner or later. we're going to see cases of this new varied here in the united states. we'll have to face this new threat to so we face those with come before that you are announced restrictions last week for travelers from 7 countries. plus south africa were army crime was 1st attacked. it biden's also not ruling out new
7:14 am
restrictions depending on the degree of army crowds spread. however, he insist for now there will be no new lock downs. cases of army crimes have already been reported in canada. so the united states travel restrictions that took effect on monday may be too late. the travel bands are very much a knee jerk reaction. we're behind the curve. i mean, this variant has been out for probably several weeks when there's a cluster of cases. the bands come in and, and now we know that it's in more than a dozen countries drug companies are already exploring adjusting boosters to combat the new variant. we believe does not receive money pictures, or we need to get more data from these, but it seems to be emerged more pictures and best buy was across is core to much drug manufacturers like madonna and pfizer, have made billions from the sale of coven vaccines. vaccines, the u. s. says,
7:15 am
