5:09 pm
doses under 2 previous contracts e.u. countries are pinning their hopes on vaccine wallets to help contain a 3rd wave of the virus stephanie decker reports from berlin for many this moment is a long time coming bringing with it hope that soon life could at least partly return to normal we've come to honest with you i'm in my seventy's i'm not interacting with many people these days i would like to see my children and grandchildren again i hope once i'm fully vaccinated that i can say hey here is your grandfather germany's had a slow start to its vaccination campaign around 90 percent of people have had one job and around 6 percent have been fully vaccinated the moment they call at that moment we vaccinate around 660 people a day and our maximum capacity is around 1000 but we don't have enough of the vaccines and that's why we come back snake as many as we could the moderna and
5:10 pm
pfizer biotech vaccines are being used here at the moment this is the recovery area and people are being told to wait around 30 minutes to make sure they don't have any fight effect now it's not at full capacity we're being told that this is mainly because of a bureaucratic complicated registration process north of simply a lack of access. it's a message we hear repeatedly we don't have. as many as we need the policy on. the buying of their vaccination goals this was led to a situation where we are at the moment. the european union decided on a communal buying program but it's been hit by numerous supply problems and delays scientists say the vaccine is the best option for controlling the spread and the symptoms symptoms that can be unpredictable this clinic in the north west of germany is dealing with what's called long term covert these it has. in you know

5:17 pm
a disease that kills $400000.00 people every year mainly children but finally a vaccine is showing promise a year long study carries its own $450.00 children and bikini fassel shows it's 77 percent effective based on these results approval for use could be granted by the end of next year but the vaccine was developed by the general institute at oxford university and the developers made a deal to have it manufactured by india's serum institute's producing up to 22000000 jobs. professor ian hill is the director of the jenner institute at the university of oxford stanky so much for joining us on the news hour and congratulations on the early results this is of course the 1st malaria vaccine candidates across the 75 percent threshold for effectiveness how much for breakthrough do you think this new vaccine could be when it comes to treating malaria. yeah i think it's going to be very important for
5:18 pm
a few reasons really firstly it's more effective than anything that has been reported on before the world health organization wanted the 75 percent effective vaccine this is the 1st time we've gone just anyone's gone just above that level with certainty certain percent really importantly it can be manufactured at last the large scale and we're hearing from the syrian institute of india today that they will be able to produce 200000000 doses or more on registration of this vaccine and so far very importantly the vaccine looks serve in small numbers 450 trials some jerks we know are planning to go into a much larger trial and try to get there's a scene registered so it can be used ever were quite a bit with with the coronavirus pandemic we're almost getting used to seeing vaccines being developed and then rolled out almost instantaneously given that how
5:19 pm
soon do you think you can expect this vaccine to get rolled out and start going into the arms of children. well we do know that we are drawing exactly that analogy 4 times as many people died in africa from malaria last year as died from code and africa has registered many. vaccines on emergency legislation so if we could do the same for malaria we would get rid of much faster assuming the the results are good enough because the last malaria vaccine that went into phase 3 took another 6 years to get a decision from the regulatory authority that really is too slow these days ok so. let's hope you do manage to get that trial underway and get your emergency approval but looking for words how. easy it will this vaccine be to
5:20 pm
administer because we understand your institute is trying to get this manufactured at cost and doing some cheaply to enable a lot of doses but the logistics are also a fact and we saw that with the pfizer biotech vaccine for a covert 19 with the cold chain storage we were hearing earlier that this vaccine takes 4 dorsets to ensure protection is that not a challenge. well a lot of that seems are given as 3 doses in infancy and that's exactly what we plan to do with this vaccine which of course can be kept in a fruition no freezing required and then what you do after the 1st 2 years doses as you asked the children to come about. 18 months or the age where there are birds and they get a booster shot now we already do that for other vaccines so there's nothing that hasn't been done before here that would need to be done with those malaria vaccine and your institute the generals that you're oxford university as many people will
5:21 pm
have heard about the oxford astra zeneca vaccine. is there is this an entirely separate project project or is there some kind of similarity that said mabel that the t. breakthrough is to come at the same sort to be similarity. only similarity is that we did fry that you know carol back to back soon for malaria we got some protection but not close to the certainly certain percent we're seeing today with this new vaccine so this is a next generation malaria vaccine with a new attitude and with a new design to the immunization it serves so in a sense we have not actually been published on this before so it's very exciting to see this really working working 1st time absolutely it's very excited we're seeing all the we're all becoming armchair epidemiologists and experts and vaccines are watching this said whole but now that you find the world just talking about vaccines helping treat these diseases that some of which we've never really heard
5:22 pm
about before in a more general terms are you more hopeful that we're going to see people more receptive to medicine and to science and to vaccines on the whole or are you worried about some of the concerns we hear from people who are very hesitant they don't like the idea of these vaccines being developed more quickly your institute as a driving force in getting more vaccines out and seeing this technology come forward just. looking even further ahead stuart see progress on the horizon when it comes to treating disease with vaccine or is there still a concern that people are very hesitant and skeptical of. 2 things are really changing the 1st one has changed already vaccines are being developed faster people are asking questions why should it take you 5 or 6 years to develop a vaccine if it can be done for coded in in one year and of course the answer is due to many factors often simply funding not being available it has taken longer
5:23 pm
than it should be taking their head taking and that that is as i say already changing on the question of vaccine hesitancy it's different everywhere really so we found in the u.k. doing early surveys something like 60 percent of people certain they would cope with vaccine when the vaccine became the middle of all the numbers or more like 94 percent of people who are invited to a vaccine actually coming to take it and particularly for malaria the good news is that up to a great sort of general childhood vaccines are actually higher and higher learned in europe there is less vaccine presidency so many african infants as many as 10 vaccines during infancy which is fantastic because like scenes are really needed in sub-saharan africa so i'm pretty confident going forward it's been an extraordinary year of vaccines and i think we're going to see more very useful products coming along and coming along more quickly and say very good news there indeed we're out
5:24 pm
of time unfortunately but adrian hale there director of the generals to cheat at the university of oxford thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera if you're. now russia has begun moving troops away from its border with ukraine it sent tens of thousands of soldiers into the region they didn't attention with ukraine and its western allies will school says it was a military exercise and some equipments will be left behind for a drill later this year nato and ukraine's president welcomed the move but say they will remain vigilant with his war on the troop withdrawal from moscow russia says it will have been withdrawn its troops from the border with ukraine by the 1st of may it was a mobilization that the russians said was a military exercise but that has concerned the u.s. the e.u. and nato the e.u. estimating that at one stage there were more than 100000 troops amassed along the

demanding access to his own doctor when 1500 supporters were arrested during what's fair process on say calling for an immediate release. now if you're at a south korean hospital and not following the covert rules then you can expect a telling off from kimi not so a robot that can detect if people are too close to each other or not wearing a mask properly bright. don't let those cute rolling eyes for you this robot is basically a pandemic policeman wandering the corridors taking the body temperatures of any body or passes and if it sees a group of people too many people congregating together then he is straight in their. turn you keep your distance he says and it doesn't stop there he can detect if you're wearing your mask properly or not and will tell you to put it straight. and in this it seems he will not be thwarted. told you

yes all right to neil to the machine and when he's not busy keeping an eye on us he's off busy disinfecting the hospital day or night sweeping surfaces with ultraviolet light rays it's all part of using the latest in technology to make our hospitals as safe as they can be and that could become the norm for the future on the was an earth. this robot uses 5 g. vision technology developed by us which can detect the mosque wearing and social distancing to provide a safer environment for patients and visitors and integrated with a centralized hospital wide smart system that can tell him where problems might be occurring such as people on wittingly gathering in numbers once more then he's off again and hope pursuit on his next bust. now has had a busy week sending astronauts to the international space station aboard
