1:06 pm
scoring virus or reading studies. of that if nature it needs quite a nation compilation we must stop and the political pressure on. the trumpet ministration has issued an order lifting an entry ban imposed on travelers from brazil and most of europe but joe biden's incoming team says it won't go ahead the bans were imposed earlier this year last year rather they blocked most non american citizens entering from the e.u. the u.k. and brazil as it stands the restrictions were lifted in the week after joe biden takes office she has pretenses in washington he says the trumpet ministration does have good reason to lift the bombs. on the face of it you could say oh look it's the trouble been astray ssion just sort of flexing its muscles and being difficult for the beit din ministration but actually if you look at the presidential proclamation that was that was released it was
1:07 pm
a rather well argued document it said look on the 26th of january we have these new c.d.c. mandated guidelines which mean that anyone returning or entering the u.s. on an international flight over the age of 3 has to have had a covert test within 3 days and because the level of transparency and cooperation between the u.s. and the u.k. and the shingles are in in the e.u. that's where they have borderless travel and brazil is so good that we no longer need to just have a battle on the evidences because now we have these the the requirement for covert tests it wasn't just you know this is what we're going to do but almost immediately we got a tweet from joe biden's press secretary who said with the pandemic questioning and more contagious parents emerging around the world this is not the time to be lifting restrictions on international travel on the advice of our medical team the administration does not intend to lift these restrictions on journey 26 in fact we plan to strengthen public health measures around international travel in order to
1:08 pm
further mitigate the spread of covert 19 to stronger restrictions on travel potentially being promised by biden's press secretary clearly a. an argument about methodology in about and about strategy towards covert which is very much in keeping with how both trump and biden and the respective teams are discussing things as it goes anywhere. guatemalan security forces have blocked thousands of central american refugees and migrants trying to reach the united states they were traveling in a so-called caravan consisting of a large group for safety here's john coleman i the moment guatemalan police broke up a caravan of fans of people from honduras was they were trying to get the us that they hadn't made it far just about their on the town 50 kilometers into guatemala the 1st country on their route was security forces stopped them on saturday saying
1:09 pm
they needed covert tests and papers to pass since then they've been camped out on the highway well a huge traffic jam build up behind them. now lorries are running again but the problems of these people remain unresolved honduras is one of the poorest most violent countries in latin america and 2 massive november storms make things worse but there are many who don't how they work there is no food there isn't anything we're keeping up the fight the government hasn't save the president one orlando has been criticized for his handling of the economy the rule of law and democracy itself you're not going to if the president doesn't want us to leave why doesn't he give us work in a good salary he's increasing taxes actress t. bills the price of gas but the sellers are rubbish. a lot of them have been bused back to home douras the guatemalan thora tese 1st stopped the caravan after a bit of a confrontation as well on sunday and cleared them off the highway and then others
1:10 pm
of them still appear to be in the town above the wandle where they're being sort of searching presumably for other routes to continue but they're not going to be able to go as this big group of more than 6000 people that were on the highway at the central highway going through the town so it's been broken up even though a lot of people perhaps will try and continue their journey to try to get to the united states perhaps one of the other reasons why this is happening right now they might be encouraged by incoming president joe biden's slightly more sympathetic stance especially towards asylum seekers than his predecessor the current president president donald trump supplement might be one of the other reasons but the acting head of customs and border protection has actually said don't waste your time and money just because there's a new administration doesn't mean that our commitment to the rural rule of law and public health is change. mexico's president is calling on joe biden to make good on
1:11 pm
his promises for more compassionate immigration policies in that campaign here. in president joe biden's campaign he offered to finalize immigration reform and i hope he is able to achieve this with this commitment there is what i hope and i will acknowledge it and i will celebrate it. have dialogue with migrants in honduras and guatemala so they can be looked after so that they don't enter the country by force look after them respect human rights well here you go i think the time has come for the commitments to be fulfilled and that is what we hope. the italian prime minister just i think conti has been addressing senators today as he faced a save his ruling coalition on monday conte one of those of no confidence in the other chamber of parliament the lower house getting a similar result in the senate is expected however to be much tougher stephanie decker joins us live from rome so stephanie day 2 of this crisis what are we expecting today. well we're expecting another long day a lot of debate back and forth as you mentioned that has addressed the senate
1:12 pm
laying out again you know his plans justifying how this year very difficult year was governed by his government and then we're going to expect a vote on that vote we expect probably in the early evening or so and you know it really all does it's a vote of confidence it's the 2nd one yes yesterday paul's with more of a majority than people expected but he doesn't have the numbers in the senate however the party that pulled out are saying that its members will abstain if that happens and that means that he could still win the vote but with a far less number it will come back as a weaker government so to speak what people say is that the current surge in there is that then to govern and to get anything paul through the legislative will be far more difficult because you'll have to negotiate with different parties given taken certain at this point in time what this country needs is a strong government to deal with real serious issues peter so we're going to have to wait and see people tell you it's still unpredictable how the day unfolds but
1:13 pm
certainly this political crisis at this point in time for italy is not very helpful and all this politics whilst there's still a partial locked in place i mean have italians really had enough of all this. yes i think it depends who you speak to some will of course support that end to this is the politician who pulled his party out but in general people will tell you that they're fed up that it's not the time to do power plays in politics certainly entering into a new year this is a country that has soaring public debt highest debt since world war 2 you know people are struggling shops are closed you mentioned that lockdown you know restaurants bars closed there's a curfew 10 pm to 5 am in place across the country people cannot travel in between provinces mostly so that's still struggling peter so these are real measures that need to be implemented they have to decide on over 200 euros coming from the euro 200000000000 euros coming from the european union how that's going to be spent so i
1:14 pm
think people kind of are seeing this as another phase initially what's often happened they call it their political theater but they're not really getting to the real issues so again at the moment certainly the country being held hostage let's say to this interim political crisis period but we'll know by the end of the day. whether he passes or not and then indeed he still will have challenges moving forward even if he does win the vote ok we have to leave it there stephanie thank you very much tough talk of the reporting from rome. here's a taste of war still to come here on the news hour tens of thousands fleeing their homes after flooding in the museum we have a report on the latest natural disaster in a few days. supporters of the kremlin critic alexina value a run down while protesting against a ruling to put him back behind bars. and in the sports world cup host cats are revealed more details about the next big tournament to be held in the country details coming up in about 30 minutes.
1:15 pm
uganda has accused the u.s. of blatantly meddling in its presidential election last week after washington's ambassador to come pollard tried to visit the opposition leader bobby whine whine claims the president you were in the 70s reelection was fraudulent and he says in effect been under house arrest since the weekend let's speak now to catherine sawyer our correspondent following that story for us out of camp is there any evidence at all that direct u.s. meddling here catherine. well there is no evidence it's just that the u.s. has been very critical of the selection process from the very start even before polling day. us said it's not going to observe these elections because. electoral commission has refused to accredit most of its observers they said that the
1:16 pm
embassy here said that the election process has been deeply flawed locks transparency and accountability now about the u.s. ambassador natalie brown she did visit the wines home yesterday she says she just wanted to go and check on him how he's doing how he's healthy is but he was she was blocked by security forces who have besieged his home for a number of days now we have spoken to the government spokesman or foreign or pando who has said that the u.s. is meddling in the political affairs of the country in the electoral process and he said that the ambassador needed to follow the proper diplomatic procedures he said she needed to write a letter to the foreign affairs ministry detailing her intent and then the security perimeters needed to be informed now that puts a lot of question people are asking so is bobby wine and a house arrest he has said he is all indications are that he is under house arrest
1:17 pm
but i have spoken to security officials who are very careful about that word arrest they're saying he's not and are under house arrest what they have done is provided a cover to prevent any plans of violent demonstrations or any plans of riots catherine the authorities have been saying for the best part of today's now look the internet is back it's switched on it's fully operational but there's just no information really coming out of the country apart from conversations like the conversations you and i've been having over the past 3 or 4 days is the internet back on or not. war the internet is pashley back on the internet has been restored but social media social media platforms have not been restored yet people are bypassing that block using the virtual private networks of the p.-n.
1:18 pm
now our social media was blocked was a fast to be blocked on tuesday and this was after facebook suspended dozens of accounts of individuals connected to the ruling party and the information ministry this upset very much government officials including presidential where it was 70 who said that uganda is a sovereign country no one should interfere in its affairs then on wednesday there was a complete internet shutdown a security official saying that this is to avoid incite inciting messages being spread to the public to cause chaos particularly after the resolves so people are happy that the internet is back on but they're wondering when will social media platforms which they rely on very much like in what stopping people talk to their families using whatsapp and so on when will that be fully restored catherine thank you very much catherine for the reporting live from kampala let's talk now to christophe to the he's a senior lecturer at the university around work where he researches governance and
1:19 pm
conflict in uganda christophe to welcome to the news of this hostility from mr i'm a servant is it such a big surprise given we've had weeks now of claim and counterclaim and each claim is stronger than the claim that went before. thank you indeed so what we have seen is a gradual escalation of the directorate and the relation with the international community . for example when the riots happened in november when bobby one was arrested. present with 70 claims that's foreign groups had to be infiltrating the opposition you also started blaming homosexuals of being involved and all of this has been a major change with the past because in the past for example presently 70 he steered away as much as possible from the anti gay bill because he was a rare of sense that if this is an international community and how we need the
1:20 pm
international community and that's why it is in a way a surprise because i'm 70 government has always have really relied on donor support all the support from the international community from the eighty's from the 2nd have the aid is on routes up to recently donor support has been central for them 70 governments do you think his government or he himself might be prepared to tread delicately here i mean we're talking about millions and millions of dollars from the likes of the world bank and the i.m.f. and as you were saying there this has been going on for the best part of 30 or 40 years. it's exactly and particularly interesting is that the u.s. has been a key ally of uganda so this is particularly interesting that the relationships have become so difficult for example on average the united states they support uganda with their own $970000000.00 per year they get if they've been given
1:21 pm
military support and that is because uganda is a key ally in the region uganda is seen as crucial for reasons that stability and that has given the country leader way for governance stronger transgressions for corruption so that's why it's surprising in the way that relations have become so hostile and the last weeks the u.s. has been warning of consequences for again for example nick appear human rights activist was was was arrested so this will have important implications for the bilateral relations between the 2 countries but also for uganda's position fizzer beat international community we are just a few hours away from a new u.s. president does that mean given what you just told us does that mean that this change of tone the the optics surrounding this crucially important relationship between kampala and washington that is now the new status quo or will everyone row
1:22 pm
back from the current position just a little bit. yeah that's a good question because the current situation in the u.s. also plays an important rule here for example when the u.s. embassy embassy made the statement yesterday social media in uganda they were full of cynical remarks as in who is the us to control us who is the us to make these conditions because they have all these problems at home and the spokesperson of them 70 governments he also made remarks and in this context if you look at history at your feet he also who is. referring to the situation and us at the moment ok we must leave it there christophe to take our thanks richard pretty much for joining us there from the university of and 12. a thai court has handed a record 43 year jail sentence to a woman for insulting the king the former civil servant was found guilty on $29.00
1:23 pm
counts of violating title and strict laws against criticizing the monarchy the sentence was delivered at a time of protest calling for the monarchy to be reformed and for the political system to be overhauled before being sentenced the woman known only as and sharon said she now understood the gravity of what she the dum. dum dum so i didn't really think it through and was too confident and not being careful enough to realize it at the time that it wasn't appropriate this is a big lesson for me. live now to al-jazeera scott hyla joining us from bangkok so 43 years scott she didn't look like a particularly young woman is there a chance here that she'll go to prison and spend the rest of her life in prison. peter it looks like they're making an example of her you have 43 years the longest sentence for oil defamation laws here very very strict the strictest in the world
1:24 pm
and what's interesting is that there's a pattern to this usually when they're they go through this fairly lengthy court process this is been going on for about 6 years now usually toward the end when there's a sentencing there's negotiations on a term a sentence and then a girl guilty plea is submitted and usually that sentences have been that's what we've been seeing here 43 years the longest term sentence i should say before this was 35 years so yes that's what he's she's going to serve if she serves that entire time that to be left to be determined we know that sometimes there will be some clemency and that they will be released early but right now it's clear peter that they're making they the establishment both the monarchy and the government here is making a sending a message by the sentencing today and all the expecting the full those voices those anti establishment voices to go silent for a sizable period of time. well that's what they're hoping i think peter but i don't think we're going to see that right now you know this anti government
1:25 pm
anti establishment movement that we've been seeing for about the last 8 months you know there was in november there was a pretty blatant statement blatant threat by the prime minister saying that you know he'll use all legal means to go against the protest movements and what that really indicated is before that for about 2 years before we heard that statement from the prime minister in november there was an announcement that the prime minister was told by the king the current king rama 10 to not use this article one to this defamation world defamation law obviously since the protest movement had been gaining ground had been going into new territory when it came to pleading looking for monica reform that triggered this response we're seeing now and i believe that you know this case that the verdict was given today the sentence was given today this is going on for 6 years but clearly that the timing of things that this longest sentence ever for article 112 case coming out today amid of what we're
1:26 pm
seeing around with this protest movement clearly trying to send a signal but you know when you look at and you speak with these protest leaders they are defiant and they know that these cases like this and then putting themselves out there for potential arrest on these cases they know there's a big threat with that a big risk with it but they're willing to go forward with it we're seeing this dip in people coming out to the street now because of 1000 restrictions but they are still together they are still following their leaders in there still is communication going on so it'll be interesting to see how the protest movement response to this verdict today scott many things got on the reporting life the news from bangkok. in indonesia more than a dozen people have been killed and tens of thousands forced from their homes following floods across the country on monday the president yoko widodo visited flood hit areas in the south province it's been raining heavily for more than a week rivers have burst their banks submerging villages and entire time just for washington has the latest from jakarta. this crisis began on the 9th of january and
1:27 pm
10 days later there's still no indication of when it might come to an end authorities say that flooding in some areas has already receded but in all those heavy rain continues yesterday's president visited some of these affected areas and he did note that this is the worst flooding that south has experienced in at least 50 years and he said and this is what the line has been from the government thus far that heavy rain is to blame so far authorities say they have evacuated most people from the affected areas just based on what we've heard from all sources on the ground some people are choosing to remain in their homes because they say they don't want to leave all their possessions behind we know so far that 15 people have been sadly confirmed dead and at least 40000 are in evacuation centers to give you an idea of the scale of this crisis there are 13 districts in south and at least 11 have been impacted by this flooding the military has already started distributing
1:28 pm
aid but efforts are complicated by the culvert 19 situation ordinarily volunteers flying in from all over indonesia to assist in a crisis like this that simply cannot happen this year this particular part of indonesia deforestation is a major issue mining and oil plantations a large part percentage of the land has been cleared and environmental groups say that this is what is exacerbating this crisis and making the floods so much worse this year from what we've heard from all sources on the ground some communities which have never experienced flooding in the halls are now doing so this year. ok the weather is next and then. part of the vaccine despite israel's government refusing to. another rising threat to global health screening. systems tricks. for the blue jackets. for

welcome back you're watching news our live from the harlem pizza w headlining stories brazil has begun a long awaited covert 19 banks in distribution program people in the house the gateway to the amazonian rain forest vaccination is cannot happen soon enough the health system there is on the verge of collapse italian prime minister tzipi conti has been addressing senators as he fights to save his ruling coalition on monday $21.00 a vote of no confidence in the lower house getting the same result in the senate though is expected to be tougher. uganda is accusing the u.s. of meddling in last week's presidential election assault of washington's ambassador to come hala tried to visit the opposition leader but the wind he says he waited $73.00 election was for children. palestinians in the occupied west bank will receive their 1st shipments of russia's covert 19 vaccine on tuesday more supplies
1:33 pm
are badly needed with israel's vaccination campaign continuing to outpace the rest of the world the palestinian authority says its people are being neglected parish force it reports now from west jerusalem in terms of pure efficiency israel's vaccination drive has been the one unqualified success in its often criticized response to cohabit 19 the aim is to vaccinate everyone over the age of 16 by the end of march a target that also applies here in occupied east jerusalem where so far the rate of take up has been almost 50 percent lower than in israel people are afraid they don't know what to do for i think all of them are waking. palestinians living in the eastern half of jerusalem the only non israeli citizens getting israeli procured vaccines as calls mount for israel to start sharing its supply will thora teas in the occupied west bank and gaza we also vaccinate people it was not it is it was made to posting is in favor of even its tourism we have we have that service
1:34 pm
and we're not permitting that it was getting vaccinations so we're doing our part in this but the government needs to do more. ahead of another election in march prime minister benjamin netanyahu is promising israelis that theirs will be the 1st country in the world to emerge from the pandemic oh he's persuaded pfizer to commit to an accelerated supply of its vaccine in return for israel being used as a data rich testbed for its efficacies the palestinian foreign ministry says israel is neglecting its obligations as an occupying power by not providing vaccines to the 4500000 palestinians in the west bank in gaza but the p.a. health ministry says it neither expects nor requires such assistance it says 20 percent of the need will be provided by the international vaccine alliance gavi with the remainder secured by the p.a. from other sources with the with or on the. in
1:35 pm
providing the import of them and we did not ask and then with them it is their connection provide us with the thing in an interview last week with american broadcaster n.p.r. israel's health minister said it was natural for a country to vaccinated own citizens as new coded $1000.00 cases continue to search around the world already a clear gap has emerged between rich nations and poor ones when it comes to vaccinating their populations israel's own program has outpaced even the richest countries but that's only made starker just how much the palestinians have been left out of the process and how far they've been left behind are a force that al-jazeera west jerusalem. while the world's attention has been focused understandably on covert 19 and developing a vaccine another medical crisis has been growing resistance to antibiotics now the u.k.'s oxford university is getting a $135000000.00 grant to help tackle the problem one a half 1000000 people die every year from bacteria that existing drugs cannot
1:36 pm
defeat a new bacteria and infections are growing more resistant it's been 25 years since a new generation of antibiotics was introduced but another factor is that antibiotics are overused misused or overprescribe let's speak now to timothy walsh she's a professor of medical microbiology at the oxford institute for micro biles distance some of the walls welcome to the news hour is this money going to be used just to make bigger stronger new antibiotics. no we don't want to make the mistake that everybody else has made and so you. can put an awful lot of money into creating a new super antibiotic and indeed that's really what's been the focal point of other groups for about last 25 or 30 years and it hasn't been successful so we don't want to do the same old same old so what we have our series of programs and
1:37 pm
one of those programs is to design unique and novel and he microbial to put into animal farms so maybe your viewers will not know that we actually use the same antibiotics in human medicine as we do for growth promotion in animals around the world and that's actually where resistance is often is not driven so we want to have a complete rethink we want to approach it in an entirely different way and we want to start putting normal anti microbes into animals there by relieving the use of human antibiotics from animals and so we have a series of programs and one of which is also to design new drugs force human infections where resistance is very high ok that sounds like a lot of thinking a lot of writing of papers and documents that may take a long long time when it comes to medical provision a point of delivery in say
1:38 pm
a massively overpopulated refugee camp and you've got bacterial infection running rampant how do you deal with it if you're going for a holistic approach as opposed to giving somebody a pill or an antibiotic injection to make them better. it's a very good question and what we also will do in this particular program is to for example we have a project whereby we want to look at our unit was sepsis and how we actually deliver neonatal. goods drugs to signal makes around the world not least in low income countries which are the majority the countries which i i working so i've been doing this for about 2530 years i work in africa and south asia mainly but also in china and i understand exactly the question is you know what are we going to do in the here and now so it's not also just about looking and he micro the resistance but it's about also one of the stock act and the bottlenecks in
1:39 pm
getting good drugs into sick patients particularly neonates that need them for example i'll give you one example of this is that we use ampicillin on farms across the whole of the world and yet ampicillin is used is. an indicator. britney you need to sepsis and yet here she 5 percent of. resistant to ampicillin so why we're doing this so you know your question about the here and now and particularly about those populations in lower social economic groups we want to try and understand how we can get good drugs to those patients because often it's not drug delivery there are various hurdles to this and one of which of course is cost and so we'll be working with the w.h.o. about how we can overcome. overcome these hurdles ok near natal sepsis clearly
1:40 pm
that's a very serious condition but looking at the broader issue you seem to be discussing a global issue that may i'm not trying to get you to say something in particular but made the wharf if that's possible the impact of covert 19 but within that other questions of responsibility and does that come down to doctors nurses or the drugs companies because we've known about resistance growing the best part of what a decade now and yet if you go to your g.p. or if you go to a hospital they will give you like candy like sweeties across a sweet shop counter if you ask for them or if somebody decides you maybe need antibiotics they start pumping them into you quite quickly this is a very good point and so what we are trying to do so the point that you have raised is is trying to work with the w.h.o. the f.a.
1:41 pm
you know nia oh i need to try and look at this from his dick point of view so it's in low income countries that the availability of antibiotics is as you rightly say a crazy. and so we have to have a global campaign and that's why also we we also have policy and partick stewardship and policy mapped into this institute you know and this gift by any us is is fantastically generous and unprecedented but it gives us the freedom to also talk to these organizations about being joined because there's no point for example in the united kingdom as having a very strict and he microbial stewardship policy which we do and yet on the other hand we're using the same antibiotic in farms that same stuff they sure are for gore even in europe we can't we cannot go on doing what we're doing it is actually madness and so we want to try and approaches that at the ground level for
