8:06 am
crucial to scott morrison. and what we've actually had is victorian state government and tennis trailer extremely came and knocked out the dock of it in the australian open. they accepted his recommendations and paperwork what federal border force has said. he did not present enough evidence that he was either exempt from vaccination or had been for medical grounds or he had been vaccinated. so we've actually got the federal government calling the shots on entry to australia. and of course, while you know, the prime is, this is not political, it will have a political impact, and i think it will be despite the disruption the strain open. i generally popular decision by the commonwealth government not to bend the rules for sportsmen.
8:07 am
nations across the world are implementing strategies to deal with the on the chronic variance of the corona virus. many a seeking to find a fine balance between curbing it spread without imposing overly excessive restrictions. in the us, the white house is urging states to find ways to keep schools open despite record case numbers. at the same time, the president's top medical adviser has told people to continue taking precautions . the big caveat is we should not be complacent. since the increase transmit civility, ovarian may be of alma crohn might be overwritten by the sheer volume of the number of cases that may be reduced severity, but could still stress our hospital system. mexico was inching closer 230-0000 deaths from code 19, but the number of people in hospital that is lower compared to previous waves in
8:08 am
italy, anyone over the age of 50 is now being told to get vaccinated. employees in this age group had previously been able to enter the workplace using just a negative test result, but this will no longer be the case. meanwhile, france reported around 335000 view infections. another national record. the government is trying to push tougher measures through parliament despite soaring infections. some experts feel we may now be at a turning point in the panoramic. it appears that while the car is more contagious, it causes less severe illness and the previous delta variant. many believe that 2022 could see the end of the acute phase of the pandemic. but as long as the miss jona holly explains, vaccines will need to be distributed more equitably around the world to achieve that. over the next 3 months, the omicron variant is expected to account for 3000000000 infections worldwide. that's as many as during the entire demick so far. and yet,
8:09 am
there is optimism that this may be the beginning of the end. i think the vaccines and drugs and now available can reduce kind of a button by of 95 percent. so there is no longer top 10 house problem. i think it's going to be very difficult to actually get to under control in terms of controlling cases. so we're talking about controlling severe disease, which i think mortality massively. so was that still will be cases unfortunate. they, they will be much less of a rival, south africa where micron was supposed detected is now providing intriguing clues about what may happen next. infection numbers, they're dropping fast in a population that sir, chief high levels of natural immunity. down more than 50 percent from their peak restrictions are being lifted. and a number of international studies support claims that alma cronies, less dangerous, confining itself more to the nasal and upper respiratory passages than the lungs.
8:10 am
the infection numbers are enormous and yet undeniably the public health consequences are less severe. so have we genuinely reached a turning point? well, plenty of scientists seem to think so. and even the world health organization says that 2022 could bring an end to the acute phase of the pandemic. but the world health organization cautions that's possible only if the vaccines and treatments available in the rich world are made equally available to all a goal. the world is some way from achieving and even then scientific views are divided the contrary and actually shows us that this bias is very flexible. on the contrary, it is so different to the other readings that we've seen, then actually able to enter itself in incomplete different ways from the waves. previous range used to enter and what we realize is that the base for the application of this fire is quite large. and a lot of transmission is allowed to continue. the course of the panoramic is going
8:11 am
to be very, very unpredictable. high transmission rates raise other concerns to the debilitating effects of long covey, the continued risk to the vulnerable and the unvaccinated. increasingly, the policy thinking seems to be shifting away from long term control measures towards the view that the vast majority of us may be able to live alongside the virus. eventually posing as much risk to public health as the flu. jonah whole al jazeera lumber, lawrence guston as professor of medicine at georgetown university. he says it's essential to get people vaccinated in order to avoid further locked downs and restrictions. it's very likely that we're seeing a, a, a major surgery. some would call it a wild fire of only crime it's, it's the most contagious pathogen on the planet. and it's may be among the most
8:12 am
infectious ever in the history of the earth. and so there's going to be rapid spread. there's going to be a lot of cases i'm and r n game. our goal is to try to live with this fires and we do that by preventing people from are becoming ill, hospitalized and dying. and the best way in that is through vaccinations, you know, locked downs and school closures are rapidly becoming a thing of the past. at least i think they should be well, i have no objection to them for now as a temporary emergency measure. but i would be really dismayed if we went well into 2021 and we started seeing countries just locking down closing schools. that's not the way to live with covered 19. the best way to do it is to vaccinate, get enough, antiviral medication and other therapeutics,
8:13 am
and just keep people out of the hospital because we're not going to prevent coverage from spreading. we've got to stop counting cases and start preventing hospitalizations. a russian lad alliance of former soviet state says that it will send peacekeepers to kazakhstan of the countries president appealed for help to quell protests. public buildings have been torched and at least 8 security officers have been killed in days of unrest. the violence was initially sparked over a dramatic rise and the price of fuel or zeros rosalyn jordan as the latest. what started as protests against rising fuel prices has turned into 4 days of anti government demonstrations across how's act on the attacks on government forces and property. and the takeover of all monte airport have triggered a state of emergency peacekeeping troops from russia and other former soviet countries are now on their way to help president hudson jo martel, kind of defeat what he calls enemies of the state director for the routine union.

8:15 am
to exercise restraint, refrain from violence and promote a dialogue and addressing all of the pertinent issues. while with the white house pushed back against a narrative being promoted by russia, there are some crazy russian claims about the us being behind this. so let me just use this opportunity to convey that is absolutely false. and clearly a part of the standard russian disinformation playbook. we've seen a lot of in past years, a former u. s. diplomat calls the political upheaval inevitable but this has been faster and for a long. busy time, the stupendous corruption of vanessa by a family. elizabeth corona's have caused a lot of concern in context on where despite tremendous oil, well, oh income inequality is really quite substantial. and a lot of people are living really close to the subsistence margin public option. we're over the cost of living now challenging the powers that be in context on
