scientific accomplishments in history it will save millions of lives and soon the pandemic once and for all. in the u.k. authorities are advising those with severe allergies not to get the pfizer biotech open job warning comes shortly after the country began its mass rollout of the vaccine allstate signed the food and drug administration has revealed that a total of 6 volunteers died during the trials which involved $44000.00 people although the regulator assure the public there was nothing to worry about it said 4 of those people had received a placebo and the remaining 2 deaths were well within statistical expectations you know more american lives have been lost to code it than the number that die fighting in world war 2 and was 300000 have succumbed to the virus ask him up and reports. we've got 15000000 cases of covert 19 in the united states we've got
9:03 am
hospitals overwhelmed 107000 people are in the hospital at this moment doctors say these numbers are going to keep getting worse on wednesday there were more deaths from covert 19 on one day than there were on september 11th these are pretty big numbers that people are looking on at the situation in and just appalled at how massively coded 1000 has expanded throughout the united states how much the pandemic seems to be completely out of control now joe biden is promising that when he takes office he will tackle this issue for his 1st 100 days in office he's talking about a mask a mandate and i'm absolutely convinced that in 100 days we can change the course of the disease and change life in america for the better i'm going to ask for a mask in place everyone for the 1st 100 days of my administration to wear a mask that will start with my signing in order on day one to require mass where i
9:04 am
cannot be the law there is some concern about how a mask mandate would be enforced around the country where there are states and localities that have mandated masks be worn we've seen kind of rebellion among sheriffs and local police officers who are refusing to enforce it for example in california this local sheriff referred to a master mandate as dictatorial he is expecting us to arrest anyone violating these orders cite them and take their money close their businesses make them stay in their homes and take away their civil liberties or he will punish all of us the riverside county sheriff's department will not be blackmailed bullied or used as muscle against riverside county residents in the enforcement of the governor's orders unemployment numbers in the united states are actually the highest they've been since mid september we had a situation where this we. 853000 people lost their jobs bringing the total
9:05 am
number of unemployment to 10700000 according to the u.s. department of labor now despite this there is a deadlock in congress they're fighting over the stimulus package others not a clear agreement between the 2 major parties about how relief should be provided and of course we've got the 2 major parties blaming each other how many more businesses have to shut or how many more dreams have to be shattered. how many more people have to be laid off. before to nancy pelosi and the democrats will act for need more turned on look take more time but we have to have a bill and we cannot go home without it things are pretty out of control the rival parties are blaming each other joe biden is promising that he will turn things around however there's a strong amount of opposition to the measures he's already proposing even before he takes office quite a problematic and serious situation here in the united states people are kind of confused about what exactly to do to. take themselves and also we're big many
9:06 am
americans don't like to be told what to do so they try restrictions and they continue to fight the restrictions and by their doctor by some of the states are stretched you know beyond capacity following every holiday there's just there's it's a small surge and now it's a pretty big surge after thanksgiving there's still a significant portion of our population that doesn't get what's happening. all the u.s. u.k. and canada have already approved coded vaccines the european union is exercising caution but the head of its medicines agency is saying that safety must come 1st although the e.u. is seeking ways to encourage people to take jobs once they're approved it suggested the idea of vaccination certificates for people who've been inoculated and for a block wide mutual recognition of coronavirus test results it's all part of possible measures to lift restrictions and restore cross border travel right now
9:07 am
the european union is working full speed to review the safety of vaccines and to make them available in these riches you see do we have the opportunity to reach an agreement on how to proceed with covies 19 vaccines and establish a common system for the validity of tests however opponents of vaccination certificates are concerned they could end up becoming de facto obligatory that people are required to use them to travel my colleague in an o'neill opinions on the issue with a panel of guests. i'm nervous about the idea of having these travel as certificates or these certificates that say you've had the coronavirus vaccine because what that means is that actually will then end up being a coronavirus passport so i think the thing is to encourage rather to rather than to make sure people are automatically told they have to have it it should not be compulsory go green with a yacht a gentleman there no problem but for air travel. each should be made compulsory by
9:08 am
the airlines to make sure that the people on the plane are sent to blah blah about 3 don't accept or that's exactly what the problems we got were. going to be taking its toll and. i think there will be more people who are going to pick who profession troubling outlooks you eat certain they're very concerned with how rich this client she has come out with who already. are right now because it's nothing against hovering about. but this it's really rooting out a very difficult put sir do your duty as a. car is your concern the one thing i would say to the european union is if you stop having so much bureaucracy and let those countries decide for themselves they would have vaccines by now i think that's an incredibly dangerous thing to say this is been in the making for 20 years we've had a rolling review is this is going on this vaccine is safe the m h
9:09 am
r 8 would not license this vaccine if they did not believe it was safe and the problem is when you start to spread those sorts of rumors that's why people won't be vaccinated and the more you tell them you have to have a vaccine and people believe that there is some sort of miletus thing going on then people will not take up that vaccination and therefore we undo all the good work that's been done to date certain conspiracy theories and go or bordering on factual know looking as if they're going to be happening and this is just going to fuel those more extreme conspiracy theories that one of the bill gates trying to use vaccines that plant microchips in people this is simply going to reinforce their fears isn't it yes i somehow i believe absolutely. i'm sorry. you should believe these people or us who claim such crazy ideas all the time in the coming months and years we will know about the long term that sank seem another such occasion and maybe we'll need to do it again maybe there will be
9:10 am
a 2nd version at all and that will improve through the years but we need to save the economy now. protests have broken out yet again and paris over a drop security law aimed at protecting the police and boosting surveillance are all the details we can cross live now to our charlotte devinsky in the french capital. charlotte tell us what's happening where you are. full this is about one of a dozen protests that are being called across france today people i mean not just to protest against the global security nor those the protests that have been going on for the last few weeks particularly about article $24.00 which is this idea that it would criminalize people publishing images of the police if this intent to harm that is being rewritten that them over the people are still unhappy with the idea
9:11 am
of it being in there about one to 2000 people have also turned up paris to complain to protest against the new promoting the republican values of all that was announced in the last week and that's because that bill also contains a cause a cause or an article that was added following the beheading of teaching a 7 year old party there would only so make it a criminal offense to identify somebody if there was intent she told them oh my god that's exactly what happened to the teachers everybody in the weeks before that beheading took place just want to give you a sense of the crowd t.j. there's a set about one no 2000 people in power. as in this protest are they going to march in from shuttling all the way to republique in the city for the moment it seems that there are some small tension see but there is a huge presence by the security forces and that's quite interesting because it's
9:12 am
not just the protesters here who are not happy with what's going on in the french government at the moment those 2 bills police are also unhappy right now as well about some of the comments the president said this was an interview he gave a week ago where he basically said the police carry out more checks on people who are normally white than whites and because of that police have been in fear aided by this essentially saying the present marker is calling the races their police tell their own small protest on the friday evening in paris this is what some of the officers had to say. remittance acquit our police the problem is that the police lock resources and personnel they lock many things and when they ask for help no one is listening on the other side with and criticize the police which i think is like a step in the back or expect. new mccrone and telling the media that the police are
9:13 am
racist i can guarantee my colleagues are not racist today if they demonstrate and if they continue to demonstrate it is to show you that they are not racist and no there is no racial control within the police. well i mentioned that huge security presence there was camera callan's out a massive amounts of police and one of the reasons is because the last protest last saturday to an incredibly violent to paris they were around 3 to $400.00 what they known as black folks the cass's the people who come to smash things up and there is a sense that they could be a repeat. those tensions again this weekend now the interior minister just before the start of this protest she tweeted that there had already several people taken into custody for items that were found inside their bags and he presented an image
9:14 am
of screwdrivers and span as and said you know these old tricks that have a city known place 4 the protest movement that we just seeing that police are actually coming if you turn around police did like they coming into the crowds out front exactly see ruins they growing get over see something is happening at the moment these 3 sentiency is this protest in paris or trying to see if we can get a little bit closer to see exactly what's going on but as you can see the police of coming snow made the crowd start shouting out saying that the police are racists. because of the sheer shouting out i don't know if you are can see anything more clearly than we can at the moment but we will keep you updated of course own anything that happens at this protest over the next few hours. are to charlotte devinsky do stay safe there reporting from those demonstrations in
9:15 am
paris for us thank you. and other news 6 people were injured after being struck by a car at a black lives matter protests in new york on friday some viewers may find the following images upsetting. police have said that the injuries appear not to be life threatening the rally was held in solidarity with people jailed by immigration and force and the driver of the car that plowed into the crowd was arrested witnesses told us what they saw our people got hit our people got hit by cars for us the doing a peaceful protest we had those biker cops behind us the entire day the by cops the
9:16 am
bikers they were behind us the entire time they could have prevented this if it did their job to let you know where peacefully vulture charlie brown i should call come actually this is. one of them but there's an easy out the way the street in the car started just getting. smacked. in germany the daily coed infection rate has been steadily climbing since october that's led to a debate over whether to pull the plug on traditional christmas events in a bid to keep people safe artie's peter all of our reports from berlin. usually where i'm talking to you from would be the scene of one of the busiest christmas markets it's not to be this year there's no room at the inn for the christmas markets due to the global pandemic but one thing that's a memory of christmas past is the smells of mold wine that still on sale at the restrictions on selling alcohol will harm my business we will leave the lots of
9:17 am
income as things stand we can stay here until the 20th december maybe we'll be allowed to open up again after the lockdown is over the sale of a cup of festive cheer is causing a divide in the country though while bars and restaurants of being forced to close on the germany's lockdown lights mulled wine in the stalls have become a place to congregate prompting some politicians to warn that they may be leading to the spread of covert 19 across the country. one stands subvert our contact restrictions i don't understand why the city of cologne allows this in the end this will lead to new infections and that's it will be time for that later when we are vaccinated the owners of these stalls disagree though. i think we should do everything we can to stop the spread of this virus we wear masks and observe the timi to distance rule and disinfect our hands even germany's most famous christmas market in nuremberg is closed they have had to make changes to traditions going
9:18 am
back to the 16th century with this year's chris kindle christ child opening the advent season from a local t.v. studio. this year everything is different the coronavirus crisis is preventing us from doing many things in the run up to christmas such as advent celebrations and gathering at the christmas market. lockdown restrictions that were brought in back in november haven't had the desired effect in getting the number of cases of covert 90 down that means that the federal. governments here in berlin and the leaders of germany 16 states are going to have to thrash out a new set of restrictions even if that means putting christmas spirit on hold it's fought creek this nice moment as hard as a tease and i know how much care has gone into setting up the mood one and waffles tad's it's not compatible with what to be a greet only take food away and it is home and really saw it from the bottom of my
9:19 am
heart but if the price we pay is $590.00 deaths a day that is not acceptable but it is obviously the public don't want to cancel christmas but i spoke to people here it asked them what they thought about these mulled wine stalls big nope it's not very christmassy it's like to try to find a balance between not being scarce and. trying to have a good time maybe i think kate is not good at this do open at the same time is a little bit sad because if it's christmas and they're very won't be together and enjoy this time. it is a bit sad that there's not so much to do at this time but i think we need to be cautious and i suppose those few places with mulled wine should remain open it's clear from on blue merkel's address to the bundestag that the chancellor wants to see things go further sacrificing christmas spirit in the name of safety feature
9:20 am
all over r.t. . still to come this hour a popular news magazine has made its predictions as to who will shape in europe in 2021 that's among our stories after the break. is your media a reflection of reality. in a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. isolation or community. are you going the right way or are you being led. by. what is true what is faith.
9:21 am
in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or inmate in the shallowness. we are discussing a new school of economics alien economics this israeli brought about by negative interest rates means contact with the galactic federation. welcome back the british city of birmingham has been branded wolk will for the way it's named 6 new streets thank loued diversity grove a quality road and humanity close the names were suggested by a member of the public as part of a birmingham city council contest and the winner was decided by
9:22 am
a panel of judges some have been quick to trounce the pics. these new street names are completely vacuous was 0 connection to the people history or culture of birmingham another labor initiative the politicize ation of our landscape continues the art a meaningless banality of these new names speaks volumes about the new hollow normal anyway how about trust close compliance crescent woke wash way i'm calling it now someone's going to put a d at the end of humanity close radio host and columnist john grant says birmingham should have chosen names that reflect the city's achievements instead this is political correctness gone mad this is no flakes having a field day how ridiculous to name the streets in these close is in this way it's virtue signaling i'm sure it's not in shoes with most birmingham people it
9:23 am
doesn't reflect what birmingham is well birmingham's becoming birmingham is a mordent through the sting city but we could talk about the achievements of birmingham and birmingham people there's luck and loads of people not necessarily people but organization bands groups great achievements they couldn't name this after but no they want to slugger the demo do and they're politically correct it's an absolute joke and i'm sure that brahma jordan arie working class birmingham people will be laughing at this as much as everybody else. as 2020 draws to a close that media outlets are rushing to give their predictions about the year to come political magazine is no exception and just publish a list of who it thinks will be the most powerful people in europe but it also placed them in our categories as artist my biggest if explains. what politico has
9:24 am
done is put together a list of $28.00 people who they predict will shape europe in 2021 to make lease pointless activity less delve a further divide them into 2 to the unnecessary categories so do as dreamers and disruptors to make the unnecessary categories even more useless they apparently consciously put people into the wrong categories and free speech haven telegram reflects the ideals of its and globetrotting 36 year old creating launched in 2013 to compete with whatsapp and invade kremlin snooping telegram has long been on european governments radar as a tool for terrorists plotting and propaganda lately it's become increasingly popular full denies in mass movements in the west and its immediate backyard what do you mean the west telegram is the goo to ad for protests worldwide from hong kong to belarus to bolivia for the simple reason that it doesn't preach to its

users what's right and what's wrong and doesn't up politically charged moderators to filter people's opinions doesn't sell off user data and privacy to market manipulators you'd think doer of would have been a dream up for creating telegraph a free app for free people hell even do it considering what an impact telegram esad worldwide but that's rob. then again if you consider that this entire exercise makes no sense the scrub there is a great choice and speaking of disruptors. putin has been ascribed withholding vast powers to hack american elections to trick millions into believing in vast conspiracy theories to move governments like chess pieces around the middle east and eastern europe all this without necessarily even lifting a finger the russian president is likely happy and right so far on reputation alone because when it comes to actually doing things well lately he doesn't seem to be able to make much of an impact at least not in europe poisoning the opposition
9:26 am
leader alexina valmy neither killed in valmy nor the controversial nordstrom to pipeline wage of course makes no sense again if putin isn't actually disrupting it in and they say themselves he hasn't made much of an impact lately perhaps he's busy being a dream up but the answer is obvious in any other category putin wouldn't have an evil redback crowd around him and you can't have the least of influential people without a bad putin in it turkish president there do on you might be interested to learn also made the list is a do a bad get this year for example he reportedly sent thousands of syrian mercenaries and terrorists to fight against armenians on the side of his head about john for money that apparently is a disruption but doing a real girl get or by the way you'll never guess who is the 2nd most this right the person putin. j.k.

rowling is destructing her own creation and militantly tolerant generation of millennial who grew up reading her books against comments on transgender rights and her deployment of women's rights and fears is part of her argument j.k. rowlings great scene which landed her with the likes of putin no less was saying that women are women you know biologically no wide chromosomes so the scientific definition of a woman but rollin cost her own spell and then double down notice to the fury of fads we couldn't care less what people identify as you can be whatever you want to be an all male it for all i care obviously this is a more complicated issue but really 7th greatest destructor for 2021. i could theoretically keep going on about politico's cheap click baiting trying to tell the
9:28 am
fortunes of an entire continent by during names out of the hat and assigning them to a category based on what they've already done so based on the past hell i actually think politico would have had more luck and be more accurate using teves. that's a wrap up of the day's top news but the stories haven't quite unsure thirst how to number to our website dot com. human history has always seen continuous war of a sort but in recent years it seems to have become more intense the platforming is no common practice and public scrutiny of the imminent future would do we all stand on the battlefield of belief.

problem drugs don't always come from unscrupulous dealers but from pharmacies too in every state in the united states we've seen the very sharp increase in the number of people seeking treatment for addiction to prescription opioids invaded america under the banner of medicine persisted with the pain but instead of trying to wean him off though she just goes at their dose after dose after dose and really became his drug dealer soon is to blame patients doctors manufacturers all the governments of. the us the one business show you can't afford to miss their montevideo going to
