11:02 am
tackle the crisis i think that. we are constantly afraid for the past 5 to 6 days we are getting oxygen in parts one tonne 2 times half a ton during different parts of the day we need 5 tonnes of oxygen every day only we know how difficult it is for us to get by through the evening we are not even having enough sleep at night because of the crisis i would like to thank the police and the government for doing the best they can but it is not enough. live now to new delhi zeros elizabeth for autumn is. where are you how bad are things that. we had a makeshift quoted 900 center that has just opened up to cater to the very large numbers of people in delhi who can't find a hospital bed because hospitals are completely full it's open to 500 beds with oxygen supply and delis leader says they'll be at 100 more intensive care units there's even got the entire tibetan border police providing medical personnel to
11:03 am
help out here despite all of that we are seeing distraught family members coming here as they have been going to hospitals but even here they are having trouble admitting their loved ones because even here they're being told they need the photos they need to create a register and that is because of the rush that is everywhere in the city the center was actually opened for the 1st time last year when during the peak of the 1st wave it was dismantled a few months later when cases came down. cases go as low as 100 to 200 less than just 2 months ago and now there are more than 20000 cases in delhi we're seeing some of the numbers. and thinking for a fact in other states and despite all of that there was a large election taking place in the states with today the capital. recording very high 50 percent positivity rate and yet elections are going on there and they have
11:04 am
in the last few months in 4 states with a madrassa coach saying india's election commission on monday saying that the election commission is single handedly responsible for the 2nd wave of the coronavirus in india for allowing such large gatherings to go ahead and list tell us more about this occurrence of cracking down on social media news website news website reports that a critical of its handling of the situation. well look the case is going up in india as much as they have over the last few weeks there has also been growing criticism of the government's handling of the outbreak why it allows such large political and religious gatherings to go ahead why prime minister that in the world he himself up until one week ago was addressing thousands of people without a mosque at election rallies saying these are the biggest crowds i've ever seen celebrating the crowds and so this all of this criticism was also on social media the hash tag modi made disaster was trending on twitter leading to the government
11:05 am
asking twitter to take down dozens of accounts for criticizing the government's handling to have said that has said that they have withheld these accounts meaning that they're not available in india because the indian government often uses the information technology act a law to block access to information which it says is to protect india's sovereignty its integrity and maintained how. does there is elizabeth broderick reporting live from new delhi less money thanks. president biden says that the u.s. will help india just as it helped america through its worst moments of the outbreak his chief medical advisor dr anthony found she spoke to a.b.c. news as the white house announced that it will immediately send medical and protective gear as well as war materials for producing vaccines there's discussions about really ramping up what we can do on the ground oxygen supplies drugs tests p
11:06 am
p as well as taking a look in the intermediate and long run about how we can get vaccines to these individuals both immediately now as well as in the situation where you help them to be able to essentially make vaccines themselves more now from 0 to 0 as particle high in washington. well the biden ministration has been under increasing pressure to take these steps especially after thursday the state department spokesperson asked about sending aid to india so that they were focusing on vaccinating americans that was their priority but now we know that they are going to send some supplies we know this because the white house put out a statement reading out a call between the national security advisor jake sullivan in his counterpart now keep in mind there is a ban in the united states for acts already in any sort of ingredient that goes into making these coated vaccines so this statement is very carefully worded it says that they have found a source they have found
11:07 am
a supply source for helping to make that vaccine it doesn't say that it's u.s. based or where it's from but it goes on to list a couple of other things like you mentioned that they'll be sending in such as personal protective gear testing kits they're going to send some therapeutics of medicine that we know can help treat severe covert cases and there's an inch of health experts so one of the issues here is they don't say how much of these supplies they're going to send they say they're going to work generating oxygen capacity but doesn't say exactly how that's going to work or what they're going to do for this urgent need and there's another source of criticism now facing the biden ministration the u.s. has the technology obviously to make pfizer the vaccine the johnson and johnson there is pressure for him to relax intellectual property rights in the patents and to share that technology with the world so they can make their own vaccine that is something he said it would be the humane thing to do it was running for president
11:08 am
but so far they are just only say that they are considering whether to take those steps it's obvious on the pharmaceutical industry is against but that is something that the biden mr action is going to continue to be asked to do as the spikes across the globe colombia is going through its worst peak of daily infections and deaths since the start of the pandemic hospitals on the brink of collapse and major cities doris's red posing new restrictions and to add to the problems of vaccination drive has been slow as. the reports. had a man could at this was thrilled at the idea of receiving the 2nd dose of the signal back vaccine but just hours before his appointment he instead received a message saying his shot was postponed until further notice but. i was so disappointed when i saw the message i was looking forward to the 2nd shot to finally be done with us and be free to say money fuz i don't understand why they
11:09 am
didn't plan to keep enough shots for those who got the 1st one. and the 79 year old is not alone health services in colombia have suspended appointments for thousands of people because they don't have enough doses so far just 2.7 percent of colombians have been fully vaccinated well 6 percent of received one doze a recent report found that at this rate it will take almost 2 years for divac see nation come again to make an impact. to try to speed up the process the government authorized large private enterprises to buy vaccines internationally for dinner employees but manufacturers like pfizer and c. novak's say they will not sell to private businesses for the time being both the government and the private sector are recognizing the government's falling short it's called mid meant to vaccinate the entire colombian population it's more like
11:10 am
a fear of victory by the private sector that they're now you know keeping praise at the government for allowing them to proceed but there's really nothing that they can do in the short term to expand access to vaccination. all this happening while doing its worst crisis since the start of them make averaging more than $400.00 deaths per day and with intensive care units close to collapse. colombia's capital is under strict weekly in lock downs and has nightly curfews among other restrictions and alternatives are expected to impose more over the weekend the city set up new field hospitals to try to ease the pressure on the capital's health infrastructure well the mayor pleaded with people to stay home theirs as executive i know it's a major sacrifice and an economic and emotional sacrifice but certainly it will not

broke that relationship and certainly know that afghanistan will never be used as a favorite for terrorism. it's hard to break a relationship you don't have the taliban has long denied there are any al-qaeda members in afghanistan they are quick however to confirm their attacks on sunday alone they published 16 posts on their website boasting of killing dozens of afghan soldiers and police officers and recent days if you could be verified city miller is america's longest serving commander in afghanistan he has tried to reassure afghan security forces saying he'll leave them with as much equipment as possible it's my objective to make sure that the afghan security forces are in the best possible security posture and that means transitioning bases and equipment to the afghan security forces more than 10000 u.s. and coalition troops need to leave afghanistan within 5 months as numbers dwindle
