9:00 am
we are british and we want. the european court of human rights rules. legal for children. to the global. nation we. should be listed as. the european. still. should be listed as a red. brazil
9:01 am
. in america we hear from one of the professors who ultimately. if we don't do anything we could be. the largest humanitarian tragedy of the 21st century. international. the european court of human rights has ruled that compulsory vaccinations for children do not human rights convention. the ruling is unrelated to the current global. however. it might set a precedent let's get more details on this right now. what exactly does the ruling
9:02 am
mean. well this ruling this case in fact started long before anybody had ever heard of covert 19 what it does though is it sets a precedent in one of europe's highest courts in relation to compulsory vaccinations and we are in the middle of the world's largest global vaccination program ever this particular case it will it goes well back quite a few years 1st time it appeared in the european court of human rights was in 2013 and already been going through the court systems in the czech republic for a long time before that the complaint was brought by families in the czech republic who'd either being fined or their children had been refused entry to early years education kindergartens and nursery schools because they hadn't been vaccinated by
9:03 am
their parents and their parents refused to have them vaccinated what the court ruled on thursday was that this was not a breach the finding of those parents on the floor of the compulsory vaccination program in the czech republic was not a breach of the european convention on human rights particularly when it came to article 8 which deals with respect for private life what the court ruled was that vaccinations are necessary in society the court clarified that ultimately the issue to be determined was not whether a different less prescriptive policy might have been adopted rather it was whether the check authors who use had exceeded their wide margin of appreciation in this area it concludes that the impugn measures could be regarded as being necessary in a democratic society. well the czech republic requires that any children entering into early years education are vaccinated
9:04 am
against 9 diseases and illnesses these include things like weeping cough and measles as well now what we have seen though this is the 1st time that the european court of human rights is ruled on compulsory vaccination in children the judgment emphasizes that all decisions concerning children that best interests must be of paramount importance of regards women a zation the objective has to be that every child is protected against serious diseases through vaccination or by that you will herd immunity the check health policy could therefore be said to be consistent with the best interests of the children who were its focus or while the ruling on thursday makes no reference whatsoever to covert 19 or the current situation we all find ourselves in the covert 19 pandemic has been 13 ground for anti vax const variously theorists with numerous conspiracy theories abound both online and elsewhere many
9:05 am
of them relating to potential forced vaccination now what this ruling on thursday does from the european court of human rights is it sets precedent that obligatory vaccinations. don't contravene the european court on human rights what it does not do in any way is give any european nation the right to start forcing vaccinations on any of its citizens of course it coming out during this huge vaccination program we're all going through with vaccines throughout the news all over the world right now this is why this particular ruling from one of europe's top courts has made top billing in the news. peter thank you. well the benefits quote outweigh the risks of side effects europe's medical regulator has stood by britain's astra zeneca vaccine while noting blood clots should be listed as rare side effects the regulator has received more than 200 reports of blood clots in
9:06 am
those getting the shot though that is among the more than 30000000 who have been inoculated all across europe meanwhile u.k. authorities now recommend available alternatives to astra zeneca to those under 30 due to the possible blood clot plink 80 people in the country have suffered clotting offer a dose with 19 deaths a person's regulator is is following alternately that of the rhetoric of the european medicines agency as correspondent but as d.f. now explains. the takeaway the message that europe's health authorities want to leave you with is that it's still worth it the benefits outweigh the risks the benefits outweigh the risks how does become almost a slogan for the astra zeneca prove it vaccine earth portrait cases of unusual blood clotting following vaccination with the astra zeneca vaccine should be listed
9:07 am
as possible side effects of the vaccine it's unfortunate start both vaccinated people and health care professionals are aware of the signs and symptoms of these unusual blood clotting disorder so that they could be spotted quickly to minimize any possible risks so why did it take so long i mean the rumors began months and months ago that it was all in the news on t.v. in the papers and the company kept telling everyone the same thing there's a new link between the jab and the well dive analysis of our safety data more than 10000000 records has shown no evidence of an increased risk of billie's or deep vein thrombosis and a defined age group gender batch or in any particular country unfortunately there was a link and now the astra zeneca job will have i've additional warning lot it can cause blood clots and potentially death in people as young as 8 seed the age the youngest
9:08 am
deceased and still they say it's worth it unless of course you can go and get another job in which case probably best to go for that their words adults who are age 18 to 29 years old who do not have an underlying health condition that puts them at higher risk from serious coben 1000 disease should be offered an alternative covert night in fact seen in preference to the astra zeneca vaccine where such an alternative face seen. is available over a dozen countries only counting the european union have suspended vaccination with the astra zeneca vaccine or that serbia to please their marketing department though i doubt that a simple rebranding is going to cleanse their reputation i would definitely say it's a stupid move because changing the name which means changing your shop window right in the midst of a crisis rather than increasing trust will increase especially because
9:09 am
it always indicates that there is something you want to hide so i absolutely do not understand how 'd a company comes to such a decision at the end of the day i can't help but partially agree with them the alternative waiting for another vaccine could have cost thousands of lives but only partially they let these rumors steward fester for months before coming out and admitting that essentially people were right to be afraid and that unfortunately has done irreparable damage to the vaccination drive worldwide. well it's being called a biological fukushima that's how one scientist is describe the copen situation in brazil following a surge in casualties the grim prediction is the country's death toll may soon break january's record in america the physician told us the scale of the problem.
9:10 am
the convention to ensure this is 3 me severely in brazil is very critical right now we have a national hospital collapse and exponential growth of new cases into country for the 1st time in brazilian history and april we may have more of deaths in the country of diverse this has never happened in the brazilian entire brazilian history what we needed now is a national motto but we have 4000 deaths a day i think the brazilian people will support a call because they know we have nothing else to do at this point brazil's daily death rate this week passed 4000 for the 1st time with the death toll now exceeding 340000 the country is the world's 2nd worst hit but it's pointed to horrific so in a collapsing health system its president insists the nation won't be put into lockdown so we got reaction on the streets of sao paulo. i skip patches just said that i think part of the blame is ours from people getting relaxed after so long in
9:11 am
this situation but i believe the bigger blame is on our president who always makes and a path more difficult making it harder to interact with the rest of the world. through the i believe it's the result of people having to relax too much after all the improvements people have to know that if it was getting better we should keep doing what was being done to improve it is indeed a system we brazilians are in a unique situation due to the government we have that doesn't care about the millions of people that are dying every day or even worse i even think the president celebrates. all of brazilian authorities that maintain the country will get quote back to business in a couple of months but the physician we spoke to isn't particularly optimistic the country is not going to be back to normal in 2 or 3 months he may take half a year of war just to good and then make under control let along to get back to normal life the government didn't work hard and off to procure to buy tens of
9:12 am
millions of those that brazil needs to vaccinated its people so we have unlimited supply and current levels we have vaccinating barely a 1000000 people a day when we should be vaccinating at least 2 to 3000000 people a day so we need to double or triple the number of people vaccinated 'd but the problem is the supply of vaccines that brazil has been able to acquire if we don't do anything we could be in the middle of a historical tragedy here i mean probably the largest humanitarian tragedy of the 21st century. texas governor greg abbott has laid into u.s. president joe biden over a migrant crisis on the country's southern border and called on the white house to close one migrant facility in san antonio this one following allegations of child sexual abuse that. these problems the reporting product of president biden's open
9:13 am
border policy children in this facility of being sick should be assaulted this facility is a health and safety nightmare the governor's claims are based on concerns about the facility received by the texas health and human services commission and department of family and protective services has instructed both already is to probe the child abuse cases immediately it's not only children's safety at stake the by the administration has received another criticism after 2 men on a u.s. terror watch list were detained on the southern border the border protection agency detailed the arrest in a news release. u.s. border patrol agents assigned to they all central sector and arrested to yemen a man within the last 2 months that's where identified in the terrorism watch list well that press statement was then suddenly swiftly removed from the department website it is understood that the men were from yemen and they have been apprehended in el centro california with a number of people on the f.b.i.'s watch list arrested trying to enter the u.s.
9:14 am
is so far unknown let's get some more details here with our correspondent philip martin. among the surge of migrants illegally crossing the u.s. border and being detained we now find out that among those who were detained were 2 yemeni men who were on the terrorism watch list now white house spokesperson jen psaki says this is not a common occurrence however there is widespread concern about the security of the united states amid the border surge. cartel traffickers and the terrorists are all trying to take advantage of biden so open borders president biden strecche list build the security police continue to put americans across the country in danger enough is enough it's time for the biden administration to get serious about stopping the senate now what's even more interesting is the report from the border patrol about the detaining of these 2 individuals has been removed from the
9:15 am
internet according to the website and those who manage the border patrol that report somehow violated national security but at this point there are many other concerns and we've seen a 15 year high in migrants crossing the u.s. border this is going on as 171000 people cross the u.s. border in march we now have the biden ministration considering options among the options they are reportedly considering is perhaps continuing the building of trump's border wall take a listen the president has communicated quite clearly his decision for the emergency to trigger the devotion of department of defense funds to the construction of the bootable is ended but that leaves room to make decisions as the administration has parts of the administration in particular areas of the will need renovation particular projects that need to be finished viewers will recall that when donald trump began building the wall the democrats fought against him pretty
9:16 am
hard they declared the wall was immoral that it was racist and they shut down the government for $35.00 days to prevent funding from being allocated for this wall let's review what happened is an enron levy it's not who we are as a nation 20 times call for i will shut down the government if i don't get my will none of us if you want to know something you've said ok you want to put them i said i'll take i was a prosecutor for many years and including the attorney general california i specialize in transnational criminal or his am. that's and then why and i'll stop them now at this point amid in upsurge of migrants crossing the us border including potential terrorists to individuals on the f.b.i. terrorism watch list at that point we now have a situation where democrats are possibly considering measures they once declared when donald trump proposed them and put them forward to be immoral quite an interesting turn of events. if you are watching or to international still up and

house is vetting former ukrainian gas executive a most hochstein in a last ditch opposition. has been traveling with the russian foreign minister mr lavrov when his trip to kazakhstan he reports on the minister's response. there have been reports that the united states army pointing a special envoy to europe with one thing stopping the north stream to project down just to remind a north stream to is a gas pipeline going from russia via sea bed into germany now if this is appointed their goal will be traveling across europe talking to european leaders like in germany for example or denmark and convincing them to stop the construction russia's top diplomat sergey lavrov has commented on this strategy on this potential step that the united states might take he did not mince his words have a listen. even a structure like the council already publishes material criticizing the united
9:20 am
states' absolute deadlock strategy over russia which does not produce any results in terms of the goals that were declared when sanctions were imposed now from the very outset the united states have been against this project against nordstrom to saying that russia will be using this pipeline as a geopolitical weapon the geopolitical tool moscow in turn has been saying that this pipeline simply makes a lot of economic sense and it makes russia's task of delivering natural gas from russia into europe just simply move flawless and easier but this didn't stop the united states from repeatedly slapping sanctions on to this project and onto companies involved in the construction circular labral has also commented on the state of russia u.s. relations in general saying that while in fact russia can only rely on itself when it comes to some key state interest saying quote unquote that the u.s. and european partners are unreliable as an example he talked about the situation
9:21 am
around the so-called open skies agreement with the united states saying that lately russia has been receiving some very mixed messages from the from the united states from washington as to whether or not it is staying or leaving at. this agreement and if it is abandoning the dream and then. to develop a 2nd. efficiency data the vector research for the center says the interim results are out for the. now let's get some details on this with more is artie's jacqueline from. overall the data about corona is quite encouraging but the company behind the shot has released data showing that infections can occur after the shot has been given out of a group of 150 people 28 later tested positive for corona virus but this isn't anything to be particularly alarmed about because the company said that these were people 60 years and older who would not remain isolated during the vaccination

process itself khurana it requires 2 shots given 2 weeks apart and only a few weeks after that 2nd shot is given will the body be able to produce a sufficient level of antibodies which is of course the norm for all of the vaccines that are out on the market right now now dr has said most of those cases actually did occur within the $42.00 days necessary for the body to build up its munity there are still some cases of infection and people who have had the corona vaccination as is the case with any coated 90 job in the vast majority of cases it occurs when the person didn't have time to form a fully fledged immune response the legal studies of volunteers over the age of $65.00 show 94 percent efficiency in production taking into account the immunity kutta to a stick since this group we consider the indicates is as good in addition to that it's believe that at the back khurana will be easily adopted in order to fight any future mutations that might arise and the world so its overall efficacy is quite
9:23 am
high as is its ability to prevent severe cases which again is the typical for almost all the scenes currently available in fact just a few days ago there was quite a big story that hit the news that the president of argentina had tested positive for cocaine 1000 after having said that he got russia's 1st coronavirus vaccine sputnik v. now according to reports he's remained largely asymptomatic suffering only a mild fever and the makers of sputnik he have come out reiterating the fact that sputnik v. is 100 percent effective against severe cases and they also wish the president a speedy recovery so while. action is highly possible after getting vaccinated it seems that if you wait the appropriate amount of time for your body to build up immunity and that helps prevent any further and factions and of course even if you do get sick the cases are quite mild. the world health organization has doubled down on its concerns over vaccine passports noting the introduction could
9:24 am
sharpen social divides we would not like to see the vaccination passport as a requirement for entry or exit because we're not certain of this stage that the vaccine prevents transmission there are all those other questions apart from the question of discrimination against the people who are not able to have the vaccine for one reason or another. one of the worst disputes is in the united states the white house has ruled out mandatory vaccine passports along with state governors yet companies and educational institutions are looking to push forward with the plans colleges have said they'll require proof of inoculation when students start a new academic year in the autumn. we got some very strong differing views on the issue of covert passports from our panel of guests with one former m.e.p. stating that well coded possible sorry fundamental attack on your civil liberties. this is not just like being called a person of a state or a country which is what
9:25 am
a passport is about what we're looking at here is a wholly different scenario which would apply globally where corporations are able to suggest that you can't fly out of countries get on boats and this would be basically a threat to freedom civil liberties and in some cases the health of individuals as well where you can float people do comply there are allowed to do certain things and i think people see that as a cruel not that well listen you know for example we don't use schools if you don't have certain you can't go to school and so we all there was that we need our children going to schools or i guess we will sacrifice we get the vaccination and i applaud private organizations for example who say you can't commit here unless you can prove that you can actually do it because. you know we're going to exercise our right to protect ourselves in our place seen past 1st are a very bad idea for public health for a few different reasons one is that it sort of a personal force the younger
9:26 am
a very low risk people who get the vaccine before the flu and who are alter people saw by doing that here will actually increase the amount of death another reason is that public health one of the principles of public health is trust and to make an acquirer serve a vaccine passport for the good years trust in public health authorities i mean vaccines or they seem perth but his boss an ethical and moral part is about the news now for you from all around the world the violence has continued into a 6 night in northern ireland with rioters lobbing objects at police burning cars and even firing off shots at the protests are mainly fueled by a growing anger over post trade barriers. dozens have rallied in lebanon's capital against the imprisonment of george abdullah he was arrested in france in. 19 eighty-four and sentenced to life in prison for involvement in the killing of an
