3:06 am
any goldman in that situation will take action to try and combat combat that. but all of those actions, as we said, since the beginning, should be a chill, ju respect to individual and human rights. and we always have said as the way children, we need to balance the control measures against the impact they have on society. the impact to have on the economy and that's not always an easy calibration to me. all right, joining us live now from washington d. c. as lawrence gaston, he's the director of the w h. i was collaborating center on national and global health law. lawrence, thanks so much for joining us today. it's rare to hear the head of the w h o being this critical of a government handling of the corona virus. what do you make of the comments? all right, i'm sorry for that. we seem to have lost our connection with our guests. we'll try to get them back. gunmen have killed at least 70 people in separate attacks and eastern democratic republic of congo. it's one of 2 regions where a state of emergency has been extended. the government says its combating groups

3:10 am
a government handling of the crone of virus pandemic. what do you make of these comments from the head of the w h o? i think wi chose lost a lot of patience with china. remember, very early on in the pandemic, china to c, w, h o in the world, they reported late. they claim there was no community or human human transmission. and now i'm trying has done quite well for the last 2 years compared to other countries. but they're in an extraordinarily vulnerable position, and they're really trotting on people in human rights and economic, a productivity. and the 0 coven strategy of china simply is not sustainable. as back to teacher said at lawrence, would these comments from the w h o give trying to pause with the country. consider shifting its policy at all. i think not, i think, you know, for judging ping, it's
3:11 am
a matter of saving face. i in the fall there is going to be the communist party congress. i oh, he is seeking a longer and more powerful term. and basically china staked its reputation on its handling of co 19 and i think he's in too deep. so i'm not expecting a significant shift, but maybe we'll see a slight one because you know, the truth is, is that covered is nearly as infectious as measles. the new ama cram. so variance where you put somebody in a room for an hour. i'm with measles and 8 people will walk out with it. that's what they're facing. and over the long term, i'm millions. countless millions of people in china are going to get covered and they need a strategy to prevent people from being hospitalized in dying. and that really
3:12 am
means affective vaccines and high penetration, particularly among the elderly and the vulnerable. and that's not happening in china. from your perspective, why is china insisting on holding on to this 0 coven policy? is it, as you suggested before, simply a matter of staking so much as far as reputation on trying to appear that this strategy is actually successful? yeah, i mean, i think that's the major part of that is, is that, you know, china has really staked its reputation and, and particularly its reputation, both within china, among its people and around the rest of the world on how well it's done. it's really you go into chinese media, it's really trumpeted the idea that it's been so successful in the us in europe have not been and, and that's really largely been true narrative over the last couple of years. but if you look at the united states, europe, many countries around the world,
3:13 am
even in sub saharan africa, you've got high levels of population immunity. and it's not like a heard immunity. people can continue to be infected. but it's an immunity, meaning that people are not gonna die in droves in the hospitals are going to be over run on because most people have either got covered or they've gotten a good western vaccine that's not true in china. so this is gonna be the route, it's going to come back to haunt china. and you touch on this a little bit before, but where is china right now when it comes to vaccination rates overall? well, china has, you know, a vaccination rate this, you know, no, it's, it's reasonably low compared to its peer nations. but we're, the real concern is, is, is that, is the vaccination rate among the elderly is extraordinarily low. and also,
3:14 am
the 2nd problem is, is that they're using chinese vaccines, which are reasonably good vaccines, except they're not really as effective as messenger r n. a vaccines are against your micron variant. and the sub variance, it's all in all china is really if it were thinking about this from a scientific and public health perspective, they would shift their policy and i would advise them to do that. and to do it very deliberative, lee and decisively, lawrence cast and director of the w h. i was collaborating center on national and global health law. thank you so much for joining us. thanks for having still had on al jazeera, a crackdown and sri lanka after 8 people died during clashes. what the defense ministry is ordering troops to do your god. 2 and thousands of things and call her send off the people on its mobile tour. that's
