9:05 pm
beds in the in the wards are what d.m. against the room is full of patients they have nowhere to go you know even if you don't have fit the bites you on the ward to be if you want to send them somewhere else there is no organized way of sending them away and all these patients are what they're in the are all busy those who need high amounts of often or actually would need a ventilator bed overnight to bed if they could get one. so so that is the situation using patients we could we could save because there is no x. i mean the numbers are or felt the patients lining up you know about imogen heap room broadhead because they have been running from the hospital in an ambulance or in their cars with oxygen cylinders trying to get a bed and they either run all the boxes in or are or that option was not enough for them and are there cases where so safety or so it's
9:06 pm
a disaster being situation absolutely in that sense our young resident doctors all nurses that are totally traumatized by it they're fighting hard they're doing as much as they can they can they're doing way more than they can actually they are working really hard but they are elastic it emotionally because of what is seen but they cannot save a lot of patients because we are running out of resources into beds and ventilators and ice cube beds particularly. well the u.s. government says it's working nonstop since a liver urgent supplies to india president joe biden spoke in seeing indian prime minister narendra modi and washington will will ease up to 60000000 doses of the astra zeneca vaccine after being accused of hoarding the well for more we can cross live to our white house correspondent kimberly kimberly have we heard any more from the administration about its potential aid shipments to india after all
9:07 pm
a lot of these vaccines are being used in the united states right now and they're clearly needs it's over in india. yes you got to be a little bit quicker you could have seen joe biden walking there right behind me i just walked in the front door of the white house there after talking to americans about what is going to be good news for india but potentially other countries as well what we've just heard from the president is something that we had been expecting and that is that there is going to be this shipment of the astra zeneca vaccine there's also going to be shipment of the raw materials to make over shield that is the astra zeneca vaccine rather in india but what's really important to know about all of this is that this is something that's just been sort of sitting around in the united states not even being given to americans because americans are getting the pfizer the modern of the johnson and johnson vaccines and the president just reporting just now that. there's
9:08 pm
a no need really teevan be wearing these masks anymore because more than half of all americans have now at least received one dose so the president talking about that but also talking about what's really important for india and that is that they're going to be getting help as a result of the fact that there's this extra vaccine supply here in the u.s. and although it hasn't been approved for use here it's been approved elsewhere around the world is perfectly safe and the f.d.a. is going to give its final stamp of approval so that. those that are receiving it india know that they're getting the top quality product at a time when they really need it what the president also said is that they may be in a position to give to other countries that are in need as well and they're exploring that right now very good to hear meanwhile before the u.s. president's behind you there kimberly he was speaking just moments ago with an important announcement for vaccinated americans would he have to see.
9:09 pm
yeah he gave us a bit more detail on what we 1st heard 2 from the top public health officials basically if you've been vaccinated you don't have to wear a mask any more take a listen to what he had to say and because of the extraordinary progress we made fighting this virus and the progress our scientists have made in learning about how it gets transmitted earlier today the c.d.c. made an important announcement starting today if you're fully vaccinated you're outdoors you need and not a big crowd you no longer need to wear a mask but when you are in larger crowds you are still required to wear a mask and so joe biden making this announcement is his 100 day benchmark it's coming up in a matter of days but the next big benchmark he says will be july 4th he said this a while ago he wanted to make sure that big barbecues with their families and
9:10 pm
friends and he said that to as a result of the fact that things are moving along as he had hoped in fact better than he had hoped in terms of vaccination that there may be that prospect july 4th that people can gather in the large crowds even for sporting events things like that that they haven't been able to do for so long so this is the plan just announced here behind me at the white house. live from the white house thank you kimberly russia says brazil's decision not to impose its covert 1000 bank scene is politically motivated the brazilian health regulator rejects its requests from several states to approve russia's sputniks the jobs so i think a lack of data on its safety and efficacy and i in fact sure points the blame at the u.s. governments for persuades in brazil against its. the n.c. corruption group founded by kremlin critic alexina vol may says it will continue its work despite its new court imposed restrictions georgie's are considering

9:22 pm
to be seen no crowd either just 10 prospective candidates for the palestinian legislative council trying to infuse a population that hasn't voted for 15 years and doesn't expect to now it's all or ought to convince them and to be with them to bring them. to a new hope for a new is that this. is always very certain a hopes yes i hope so. but if residents of occupied east jerusalem have a shared such hope it's been fast evaporating what elections sorry i'm asking what elections are you talking about when you are excited about prospect to take more because i know there is that there is a now. yeah i can expect that. to tell you the truth. between going to elections as opposed to show that i'm not. i'm with a policy in the state with my people to go to the election of that i believe that
9:23 pm
it's a it's a mess it's a game for the on the political level that they may cancel it in 2006 elections did take place in occupied east jerusalem as in gaza and the west bank israel allowing the voting under last minute u.s. pressure now the palestinian authority has reportedly given israel a deadline of thursday to answer its demand for a similar guarantee an israeli official told us that so far israel has given no response and. without drucilla and without the participation of our people in the city of jerusalem without the ability to campaign as in other areas in the occupied palestinian territories there will be no elections al-jazeera understands that the palestinian president mahmoud abbas has already decided to postpone the polls with the official announcement to come at a factional meeting on thursday one thing we heard again and again on the streets of east jerusalem was that if the palestinian authority wanted to hold an election it shouldn't allow an israeli know let alone the sheer lack of an israeli response
9:24 pm
be the reason not to do so the suspicion being expressed is that the real reason is internal and political the palestinian are could a newspaper reports of the decision to postpone followed intense pressure from the united states and arab countries concerned about the consequences of a strong result for the armed group hamas which controls gaza rather than a democratic renewal most now a betting on another round of behind the scenes horsetrading between palestinian factions a chance to vote put off once more indefinitely are a force that al-jazeera occupied east jerusalem. saudi arabia has suspended the imports of fruits and vegetables from lebanon and says shipments are being used to smuggle drugs after millions of pills were phones in boxes of pomegranates lebanon is already facing its worst economic crisis in decades and the bands expected to head farmers hearts santa harder reports. these farmers in lebanon are harvesting
9:25 pm
lettuce meant for households in saudi arabia but after the saudi government imposed a ban on lebanese produce they fear the agricultural sector will face a disaster saudi officials say the shipments are being used to smuggle drugs. yeah here there are thousands of it's an arbitrary decision and so we ask the saudis to reverse the ban we're not all drug dealers and smugglers you can't punish everyone . lebannon exports $400000.00 tons of agricultural produce every year one forced to saudi arabia and the wider gulf region it's millions of dollars for a country facing a deep economic and financial crisis. we don't export pomegranates investigations show the truck came from syria but yes you can argue the lebanese government is not doing its job there are no scanners at the borders with syria or at the ports corruption in governance has plagued this country for years there is little control along its borders whether with neighboring syria or at ports where
9:26 pm
smuggling is rampant and evasion of custom tax costs the state billions of dollars in revenues levanon has a long history of drug called the patient have trafficking the because bally is the source of opium and hashish production factories producing captagon pills have been discovered as well western drug agencies say the amphetamine is also widely manufactured in syria. the discovery of 5300000 captagon pills in saudi arabia was the latest drug bust coming from lebanon on the timing of the ban has raised the question if politics is at play this disengagement strategy that saudi arabia as well as the broader gulf has adopted views of 11 on is slowly turning into a more us engagement than a negative engagement strategy in that case the pressure on the lebanese government in saudi arabia whose influence in lebanon has waned in recent years is angered by
9:27 pm
what many see as the iranian backed hezbollah lost control and influence in the country lebanon's leaders ordered the security services to crack down on drug smuggling and those behind it. decisions are not in the hands of the lebanese government but in the hands of hezbollah the smuggling routes are under its control it's always the port on the pole there is no state in lebanon there's a lot of uncertainty saudi arabia wants guarantees that what it calls a systematic smuggling operations and few here believe it will be easy to control the drug trade center whether beirut. still to come on al-jazeera the mission of this center here in long beach these quick family reunification. temporary solutions for unaccompanied minors arriving at the us mexico border. heavy fighting in myanmar as for apples in a border area attack a military town. and a major league soccer team gets sent unwelcome visitor to training shanna we'll

this is al jazeera quick reminder of the top stories this hour the world health organization says 3000000 covert mines invariants that are present in india may have contributed to its latest surge when 300 fires in new cases have been reported there for the 6th consecutive day vaccinators americans no longer need to wear masks outside except in crites was the latest guidance from the top u.s. public health agency and 200000000 short supply ministers in chile by his 1st 100 days and chad's new military transition council has sent in troops as protesters demand civilian rule at least 2 people have been killed in the unrest france has condemned the violence against the protesters. let's return to the u.s. for the new guidelines have been announced for vaccinated americans for more on
9:32 pm
this we're joined by dr marty her davis she joins us from st louis in missouri where she's an infectious disease physician at the john cochrane v.a. medical center and a member of the st louis board of health it's great to have you with us on the news are relative using all the guidance that with that we're getting to the length of this pandemic one minute you're told masks are it's a fact of then we're told they work then you have to double mask now you're being told be vaccinated you don't need them why are the rules so confusing here are we are we learning more or just the science ferry from country to country. thank you so much for asking that question because i do think people have been frustrated with this that it's so important to understand that science evolves and a pandemic reflects something we have never seen before that we are learning time to time and we responded have responded accordingly i have to give credit to the
9:33 pm
scientists and public health experts who have really been working tirelessly to give us data that allows us to respond but just like you alluded to what's happening in one region is not the same as it as another region and what's happening at one time frame is not the same as another so right now in the united states where vaccine efforts have been so strong thanks to the bad inherence administration's leadership here we have gotten to the point where just under 30 percent of americans are fully vaccinated which is a strong push towards herd immunity and for that reason having this guidance does make sense but with restrictions this is not unmasking completely this is i'm asking within reasonable restrictions outdoors and with small groups you alluded to the science of valving here but you are talking to us from the united states where mosques are very much political they're politically divisive where you're joining
9:34 pm
us from so much of this decision which you say is political after all there appears to be a big incentive for people who don't like these masks to sort of nuts them into getting vaccinated do you think that's a political aspect to this. i do not i think that the biting hairs administration has been very clear in the fact that they want to bring science to the fore that they are taking guidance from people that as an infectious disease and a specialist i consider to be the leaders in our field the likes of dr felt cheated dr richelle lenski who is the head of the c.d.c. this is data driven you know we have seen that masking works i'll give you another example influenza which has plagued us year by year by year in february after masking mandates were widely available in the u.s. we saw only one death by february months into the flu season where previously in the year before those numbers were close to $100.00 so mass do work
9:35 pm
and this is data driven and is it a good idea though because we're still learning more about this virus but still learning more about these vaccines and how effective they are the vaccines seem to protect the person who's been vaccinated but not necessarily people in their percentage see if they're not vaccinated and so it is possible for a vaccinated person to still transmit this fire as do you think this move is a good idea at this time given the uncertainty that surrounds the what we know or but the virus on the vaccines. it's an excellent question you know one thing i've always said is that the vaccine is not a cure there is no 100 percent effective vaccine just like masking is not 100 percent percent effective and these are tools that we have in our tool box and when we employ all of our tools we are at our safest safe as we are most safe and so i
9:36 pm
will say that while there is a risk that risk is short and that has been a calculated risk considering what we know about this vaccine we know that in ventilated spaces the risk of transmission is low we know that people who have been vaccinated and much lower risk and we know that they are 100 percent safe from death and almost completely safe from having severe disease so while we cannot account for every single human if done properly and that's the key point here these guidelines are completely appropriate now with my public health had i am concerned about human behavior right the fact that it was already difficult to get people to mask and if there's guidance that is different from one segment of the population then another you know how difficult is it going to be but at the end of the day the new normal requires society to be responsible and be thoughtful about their individual risk and where they are along that spectrum and so we're by no means at
9:37 pm
the end of this pandemic care thank you so much indeed dr marty davis for joining us on the news hour and for sharing your expertise with us we appreciate it so great to be back stop the same. they're faced with large numbers of miners my grazing to the u.s. border the biden administration has opened about a dozen shelters and spending more than $60000000.00 a week for their care it's all part of the effort to get kids i'd say jail like border patrol stations well reynolds reports on one new shelter now receiving child migrants. in the city of long beach just south of los angeles a sprawling convention center has been transformed into a shelter for up to 1000 migrant children seeking asylum in the united states inside there are toys games recreation facilities and school classes all meant to
9:38 pm
provide humane care and lessen the trauma children feel after making the long dangerous journey to the u.s. border the mission of this center here in long beach is quick family reunification the reifications should be done as fast as possible and we also know that the space that we are in is temporary is incredibly important that in this moment we treat every single child with compassion with kindness and with love the bike did ministration has been under intense political pressure to deal effectively with the large numbers of unaccompanied children mostly from central america crossing the border the numbers have leveled off from a peak of around 20000 miners in custody in march but officials are pushing hard for the children to be released to their parents or other family quickly immigrant
9:39 pm
rights advocates were allowed to examine the facilities what we saw with this center is that number one when they will walk in it will have a sense of welcome to reunite with their child parents must show documentation and give a d.n.a. sample. after release the child will have a hearing scheduled on their application for asylum most of those parents are also on documented but the budget ministration pledges it will drop target them for deportation if they come forward to claim their children that's in sharp contrast with the previous administration's attitude toward migrant families on during the trumpet ministration the policy of that administration was if parents came forward and they were undocumented maybe a week quite 2 weeks later immigration authorities would be at their doorstep so that created a great level of anxiety and then babyland advocates say ultimately developmental

aid to impoverished central american countries and an overhaul of u.s. immigration laws are the keys to stabilizing the situation so that in the future no child should have to cross the border alone rob reynolds 0 at long beach california . the u.s. navy says an iranian warship aggressively approached american vessels and gulf waters earlier this month footage shows an iranian ship cut in front of a u.s. fassel which had to move out of its way to avoid a collision in direct talks are happening in vienna at the moment with the possibility of the u.s. returning to the 2015 iran nuclear deal where hillary mann leverett is a former state department and white house national security official she says this incident seems to show a major change in the u.s. strategy for the middle east this incident reported they happened april 2nd so it's been a few weeks it seems to have been on the eve of the announcement that the united
9:41 pm
states and iran might essentially hold these indirect talks in vienna about rejoining for the united states to rejoin the iran nuclear deal it also comes very very interesting the. other recent announcement by cent com the cent com. andor u.s. income commander general mckenzie he said last week there for the 1st time in nearly 70 years for the 1st time since the korean war the united states does not have air superiority in a military theater where it's active so we 1st have this comment that the united states does not have air superiority and now the military is releasing a video that clearly shows the united states is not have naval superiority so it's a very interesting question what is the u.s. department of defense doing is it doing it in conjunction with a coherent ordinated by the ministration policy to show that the united states perhaps is not does not have and is not seeking to continue its overwhelming.
