over 20000 of them, 20000 of them have been hospitalized. there have been over 200 deaths in children. this is an opportunity to prevent children, small children from dying. and so it's very exciting. the american academy of pediatrics as well as the cdc and people such as myself or enthusiasm. think about this and are going to be encouraging parents to bring their children into their doctors, to be vaccinate from the data that you've seen so far from the clinical trials that have been conducted. how effective are these vaccines on young children and toddlers? well 1st of all, they're safe. that's very important. parents mostly want to know about that. and then on the effectiveness side, they should have a level of effectiveness against severe disease. keeping children out of the
2:12 am
hospital comparable to what we have for older children, adolescents, and young adults. in other words, we think that they'll be about 80 percent effective as about as good as we can get with our current generation or vaccines. how do you see the uptake? what i mean with the parents are mentioning parents just a moment ago. do you think that they'll be infused by this, or will? well, a lot of them that you to sort of take a wait and see approach. the answer is yes, there will be, according to our surveys about a quarter of parents who will bring their children in very promptly because they've been waiting for this. and then the vast majority will be a bit more cautious, and we urge them to go to their doctors, their family doctors, their pediatricians ask their questions to the point that they feel comfortable in doing that. and i hope that that happened soon. all right, we thank you so much for speaking to us on al jazeera from nashville, tennessee,

2:14 am
whether quite irrelevant to the last week or so anywhere down in the southwest corner. so those shadows will help suppress the temperatures which been very high in arizona. for example, phoenix hangs around the 40 mark starts to rise again, but that's the average that's not extraordinary anymore in arizona. and his the dome is pushing this humid woman right up in tours, manitoba, in saskatchewan. so 3070 when effects near its reco type of june. then the whole lot moves eastwards. so attempt to rise in some during chicago. there are 4 or 5 even 10 degrees above average in this part of the world, and that heat is going to hang around for a bit longer. obviously, the high grandchild is blue because it's that much higher and colder and as more cloud rain, right? as the result further says, celia's tropical depression, but look at the amount of rain potential from in mexico, guatemala. now, salvador ah

2:17 am
like her. she was this place way, the colombian conflict of her child and flip when it's when with her mother. now she's back in columbia and says she's afraid of what may happen. it will stop it when sundays election gl model sonya, but i got in the past 2 years, it's been difficult with the price is going up and no jobs. we need jobs in columbia and i don't think petro could help us achieve. i'm afraid he will do to columbia why chavez did to venezuela, but not away from her home. in both time, botha medium get rid of things completely different. she 65 years old and live with her grandchildren. she says, was double paid. that all is what columbia has been waiting for a very long time. back in columbia. government's in columbia are useless, and we need something new. and that's petro because the left has never ruled in columbia, we need better health care education pension. most colombians are concerned about
2:18 am
the economic situation. poverty rates have stored under the government of iran looking who is not allowed to run for reelection inside a relative economic growth. columbia continues to be one of the most unique world countries in the world that phoenix activated by the and then again, that's why many people are asking for change something that both candidates to celebrate dental and old man. this i promise thing to bring about. but it never been a different way o m. i will be through. he's a former gorilla, and more recently the mayor of buddha, he hoped to fight poverty and prioritize the environment. his opponent, his role for them, and i 77 year old construction business man who has been compared to donald trump. he says he wants to reform the political system and fight corruption noise. so, 6 years ago, columbia signed a historic peace agreement with a fork, a left wing rebel group,
2:19 am
and even though the conflict continues in some parts of the country, that's why no, finally say colombians are voting for different reasons this time. but let me see on this is the 1st election in colombia where people are voting for the economic situation for health care and education. of course, security in the armed conflict are important, but most people are focused on other issues. and sandy's vote has colombians on the edge with both candidates promising reforms that could have a huge impact in their lives. they said, well, i'll just see that that let sir cross over to book ira longer. that is where alessandra petty is joining us from. to tell us how much support is there in the town where you are for hernandez. um, sandra. yes, they're in the we are here in boca manga their hometown of presidential candidate, the report of man. this in obviously the people here are very excited at the idea that one of their own could be the next, the could become the next president of columbia right here behind me,
2:20 am
you should be able to see some of his supporters and also had the headquarter of his campaign, which has been renamed, the house of in that in just like the presidential palace, the in bogota. and actually the candidate said amanda, one of is the many quick announcement that he will actually govern from here at least half of the time. if indeed he becomes the, the next president of columbia, and his supporters are also very excited because they see him as an outsider the like they like the fact that he's a bashing at the elite of the country, putting always front and center the issue of corporate corruption, obviously a lot of people instead believe that he is a, a demagogue, a population, the one that has been running a campaign hi on emotions, but of, with very little detail of what this policy is that could be now he surprisingly
2:21 am
got 28 percent of the votes that put him in 2nd place, but he's expected tomorrow to get the great majority of the conservative voters of the voters that continue here to vote for traditional parties just because of what they fear. the most is the possibility of a left east. they're becoming president of columbia, which puts the road on fernandez very close to winning the election tomorrow. yeah . and on the sandra it is expected to be a very close election. is it not? absolutely. most analysts will tell you that this could be the closest the election after possibly ever an in columbia. now the issue is that the last official polls are from 7 days ago. that's because it's illegal here to publish no polls the last week about what i've been able to gather as speaking to people inside both of the
2:22 am
campaigns. they're telling us that they also don't know. and they also feel that it will be a very, very close to this tells us obviously that columbia remains a very polarized society, even in this case that has no precedent. when you have 2 candidates that are not directly backed or don't come from the traditional status quo political status quo in the country that will face off for the 1st 1st time they're offering 2 different types of change. obviously, it's promising a larger role for the states. he wants to change a lot of the economic system and in the country on the other side, rodolfo and the instead of probably seeing, get out there, etc. and a smaller role for the states while also going after corrupt politicians. this is what people will have to choose between tomorrow. the issue though is if indeed the
2:23 am
elections are very close out, or it is fear, the possibility of a return of protests and demonstrations, especially in the case that are those for amanda williams. and the numbers are very close, and pedro has any doubts about those results. be it as it may, they're going to be 800000 soldiers and the policeman deployed tomorrow across columbia to ensure that the elections goes on peacefully. and we've that there's also have been reports of a number ray's questioning and even the rest, some part of the police, the people that participated in the social rest, the rock the country a year ago. thank you so much. tele, sandra. katy reporting from colombia a memorial services been held for algae, 0 journalist shooting brocklow. she was shot in the head by israeli forces while on assignment and ginny and last month, family and friends gathered at

2:26 am
a referendum for a new constitution takes place next month. but main political parties are threatening to boy talk to both of them and the constitution was written in the dark. we don't recognize it. bring me something the all the chosen parties of the people i want support was written by the president. know today the gc and people don't have anything to wait. the simple employee can no longer manage, and the president claims he's helping the paypal. what does he done for the people? he's destroyed the people. ukraine's president has inspected reconstruction efforts in the port city of a vessel. it's been under heavy bombardment by russian forces, ukraine's inability to use a deep sea ports as contributed to a jump and global food prices. full demands or landscape thank troops in the city for their service. demonstrators in london are demanding an increase in wages to keep up with raising inflation. growing numbers of families are struggling
2:27 am
to put food on the table and are increasingly being forced to rely on food banks for re challenge reports. the figures certainly are alarming. we're being told that this is the worst cost of living crisis in this country for 40 years. inflation could hit 11 percent later this year. the bank of england has just high interest rates to their highest level in 13 years. and the economy is expected to contract this quarter research to say that all of this means that by next year, 250000 households may have fallen into destitution spot. all of this. some economists say you shouldn't be hiking wages in this kind of inflation written bargain because back could use inflation even further that the union sort of calling this demonstration say it's a basic humanitarian issue. you have families, you have to go to food banks because i can afford to feed themselves. something
2:28 am
needs to be done. when you've got some people earning 100 k $150.00 k a year, and then you got how many were running 9 pound 50 an hour. there's a problem, there's a big, massive gap in wages and, and it's not fat. it's a very modest amount and we're saying that workers should get at least inflation rates. we should at least be able to see families protected against buckets in the process of household income. people are babies struggling with caleb and relying on food to get kids in school. the saving called the school day to take home because they've done with the t u. c, which is cool. this demonstration says it's done so because as it puts it, working people have had enough. but at the moment, the protest movement against the cost of living crisis is being driven by the trays indians of socialist organizations, hasn't yet sit across into the wider section of the population,
2:29 am
but don't use it. he get politically active that could well change. i would certainly the unions are getting more vocal. we have a series of rail strikes coming up next week and there is the prospect of a real summer of discontent to come. bitcoin value has dropped below $20000.00. that's it's lowest since december 2020. the crypto currency has lost more than half of its value since january. it's part of a wider crisis in the market is panicked. investor is sell off their riskier digital assets, pushing prices even lower. glenn goodman is a crypto consultant. he says, the fall in value is not a surprise. this was the same in stock market is kind of like a vicious circle when people borrowed money during the good times. and then the market starts falling and falling and falling. people are forced, or hedge funds in particular, forced to sell the stuff that they bought in order to pay back loans. and that force is price is down even further. and then that triggers even more of the
2:30 am
selling events. but what we tend to see in these situations and we see it in market all the time. you can tell i'm doing my kind of, i've been there, i've seen it, i've done it, you know, markets going cycles, they go massively up, they go massively down. and crypto in particular has always done that. have these enormous up and down waves that last sort of a few years each before you get the next big wave. so to some extent, this was kind of inevitable because it's just what ways have traders and investors need to be careful and not investing more money than they can afford to lose. because inevitably we offer a big got everything comes back down to us every single time. this super cycle think didn't happen was never going to happen. it's just not how markets operate. but the good thing is, in the longer term money has poured in to the crypto industry to the software developers, you know, will this, it, will this venture capital money is paid for.
