that's because mumbai went into a 15 day lockdown on wouldn't stay after coronavirus numbers exploded. india has recorded more than 2000 infections per day and that has serious consequences for its hospitals. and. there has been nationwide criticism that the week's long religious festival has not been cancelled millions of hindu pilgrims have been taking part many disregarding coronavirus restrictions. of course were afraid of the virus but happens only once every 12 years and we've taken time off. less than 10 percent of india's 1400000000 people have been vaccinated to date 2 vaccines are being produced in
12:04 pm
india and facilities exist to produce even more but the pharma companies have so far refused to sign patent waivers saying there's no evidence that would boost production and a new struggle lies ahead ever more aggressive mutations. so there are 3 the number is right secondly the human behavior. it's proving too much for none and millions of others who find work in the big cities they are forced to look elsewhere during the lockdown. but. my money has been completely used up i don't even have anything for the trip home i hope to at least earn a few rupees in my parents' village. if they can get but last year in food was
12:05 pm
scarce they are to the family don't know how they will cope this time as they again drive into the unknown. and for more on this i'm joined by due to be a correspondent in europe choudhry in delhi near we just heard that horrible number 3000000 deaths around the world india accounting 417-5000 of those test can can we trust that number for india well the last few days we have seen will study out suggesting that is not an. issue when you see it alls which say that the why are ground not going to join that actually running us there are of course a mismatch at least a case of some states that we shouldn't be full of it. and i don't. have to go to the playground still there is the possibility that number of others. and our hospitals and medical facilities in india able to cope.
12:06 pm
well i have actually looks at the brief but entirely all and at the moment if we go back through all this you get a read on hospitals running out of gentle beds out of i.c.u. out of oxygen supply out of medicines fissions are not. even those who are in dire need of finding species they are not able to do that and they don't want to lose shooters i need to help them fight it but there is still a struggle happening that whether the government is making it wants to live medication to increase. but it is a struggle the doctor that i have met in my reporting just been thinking about what an established they clearly see that it's not the moment it's not under clinton. you know as you know india produces a very big chunk of the world vaccines they just have the labs for and the pharma companies were to waive their patent rights given these horrible numbers that change the situation and could the companies step up to the plate and produce the vaccines well yes when it comes to the production of vaccines and there have been
12:07 pm
that we haven't seen the full. cost of the manufacture adding that to match the growing domestic one and yes i've been reading about young meat you know. beat it we've had increasing access basically around the whole production plant at the little there are industries that are companies and get nations why not if it were not in support of the articles in this scene that just you know. i could be loving not been increasingly active as such because the process is actually quite more complicated i don't even think it's going to be a place to feel like. my absence might in a little bit but it will not ringback act in the magic bullet at the end of the ok a complicated situation indeed and getting more worrying by the minute near a choudhry in delhi thanks so much for that insight. time now to take

a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world. american president joe biden has called on congress to pass gun restrictions after another mass shooting he ordered flags to be lowered at the white house and other government buildings in honor of the 8 people killed at a fed ex warehouse in indianapolis on thursday biden describe u.s. gun deaths as an epidemic. hundreds of people took to the streets of chicago after chicago after city police released body cam footage of an officer shooting dead 13 year old adam toledo protesters held a vigil in solidarity with the boy's family the shooting is being investigated by the civilian office of police accountability. nasa has awarded a $2900000000.00 contract to elon musk's company space x. to supply the spacecraft that will run its 1st meant mission to the moon since 1972 must be 2 other competitors including amazon founder jeff bezos to secure the
12:09 pm
contract. the final preparations are being made for the funeral of prince philip the husband of britain's queen elizabeth which takes place in just a few hours the nation will hold a minute's silence to honor the prince only 30 close relatives will attend the ceremony at st george's chapel in windsor due to coronavirus restrictions the event will reflect prince philip's close ties with the military. and charlotte chelsea until joins me now from london to tell us more about what's planned for today what's happening in windsor now. nick in just a few short hours the nation will fall silent that minute silence to mark the songs of the service of remembering prince philip now this service has been very carefully planned by the prince himself he requested that it didn't have
12:10 pm
a lot of the pomp and circumstance often associated with royal funerals he wanted much more of a no nonsense that that what we will see the number of links of nods if you like to his service in the military and his lifelong association with the military as well as his lifelong public service is britain's longest serving royal consul they will be peppered throughout the ceremony what we're expecting to see is the royal members of the royal family his children into his grandchildren following behind especially designed huss which is getting a lot of attention here it was designed by the prince and so it's a landrover that's been modified to accommodate his coffin which will then take him to send george's chapel just behind me for the ceremony to begin so in a lot of ways this really is royal funeral service like no other. it's search songs
12:11 pm
like it and you mentioned the prince and so not wanting a lot of pomp mourning a sort of low key affair but i imagine there would have been a public demand as a coronavirus change the situation and made it such a relatively low key event. very much so as i'm sure you can imagine events like this a planned long in advance and this service had to be hastily scaled back to remain in line with restrictions here in the u.k. so we know that only up to 30 people are allowed at the funeral so it will just be a very very close family and friends and we know as well that space last will need to be worn by members of the royal family during the service social distancing will be maintained as well and crucially the public is being also to stay away from windsor caulfield just behind me and all royal residences that's why you are seeing huge crowds of people as you might often expect for a royal funeral like this 11 very poignant moment again in line with kovan 1000
12:12 pm
restrictions will be the queen herself will sit alone at the service i think a lot of people will be watching that very closely a lot of people there's been a huge outpouring of support for the queen who's lost her husband of 73 years. and it was i did have used some pill in london thanks so much. and we will be bringing you live coverage of prince philip sooner or later in the day right here on t.v. news. broke castro has announced his resignation as head of cuba's ruling communist party putting an end to 6 decades or rule of the country by members of the castro family role who took over as president from his brother fidel in 2008 has said he is passing on leadership to a new generation. as for me my task as 1st secretary of the central committee of the communist party of cuba and
