12:01 pm
law and the ancient coral thousands of years old and environmentalists say could be why felt because of an oil field in the world health organization has ward governments against easing covered 19 restrictions to soon criticizing what it calls a premature rush. back to full morality. several countries in europe are relaxing rules, despite concerns about the highly contagious delta. various of the w. h. o says the pandemic isn't over yet. and further waves of infection could arrive later in the year. all of the countries of the america, we still have nearly 1000000 cases. week 1000000 a week in the hook up. it is an over am and the same in europe, in europe, in region. we've half a 1000000 cases week like this thing has gone away. so i sometimes have this sense
12:02 pm
that everyone thinks it's all over and we're just getting on. and to an extent, i understand the sentiment. understand why people want to feel that way. but for a lot of the world, unfortunately this thing is only getting started. we just need to be a little more patient. remember last summer where we had everything got good and then everyone kind of relaxed. and then we kind of arrived in september, october and ended up in huge trouble. but i think that's where we're going again with a much more transmissible, very at this time around on the same day that warning was delivered, the british prime minister announced that most of 19 restrictions in england will be gone in 2 weeks or stones and acknowledge there will probably be more infections that people have to learn to live with the virus from gay g reports from london. on monday, a solemn start to the day for the prime minister, commemorating the 73rd birthday. if you case national health service, i'm in the event honoring the organization and the efforts of its workers during
12:03 pm
the pandemic. that always took the prime minister's life nearly a year and a half since cove. it arrived, the locked downs and restrictions that was since put in place had become part of daily life. but the time to discuss those protections is close by, according to the government. because of the u. k. successful vaccination program, we must be honest with ourselves that if we can't reopen our society in the next few weeks when we will be helped by the arrival of summer and by the the school holidays, then miss ourselves. when will we be able to return to normal? well, the government has said that where mosque would be a question of personal responsibility. the drastic human cost has left some records sent to quit wearing them altogether. for the foreseeable future person, i'm probably going to keep it on from kind of mind, sometimes more about protecting and looking off the others that might be more
12:04 pm
vulnerable with it. it is good that i put it in the power of the people in a way, but i personally think they should still be on the country braces itself to repulse the last and social distance. thing. questions remain over really what's best the sake of public health and the prime minister himself has been under pressure by members of his own party and the restrictions as quickly as possible make of the economy. he's prepared to do that despite a 74 percent rise and infections in the last week alone. the increasing pace numbers have had many of the medical community worried about the outcome of on blocking later this month, especially as hospitalizations have also been rising. we are an experiment in itself of how do we live with high vaccination rate, a new barrier delta, lots of children who are unvaccinated under the age of 18, and case numbers increasing, as well as a significant unlocking. there are lots of things happening right now that make it
12:05 pm
difficult to attack. so far, children have mostly escaped, the more severe forms of the disease, but they are unvaccinated and more at risk of a new delta variant that is currently dominant. the problem that we have right now is that this government is allowing the virus lose literally lives on the jungle to do whatever it wants. they're just letting the virus. so this is, this is hurting unity by the by go the other course. the concern is that the u. k. could become a petri dish and you very and that would potentially be more resistant to the current crop of vaccines. but now the vaccination campaign has been a success, the worry, or the progress coming undone while the pandemic is still very much with us. so need al jazeera london, like luxemburg prime minister is in a serious but stable condition in hospital, where he's being treated for covert 19 savior battelle tested positive shortly after a 2 day use summit in brussels at the end of june. he was between his 2 vaccine doses. there is a search and sees all far eastern russia for

due to start in the next half an hour or so. the former president, of course, will be, as you said, it is virtual. and once proceedings begin, will have an indication of what happens next. have been a number of questions around the jurisdiction of the high court. because we look back over the last few days. that judgement was given by the constitutional court, which ordered the former president an imprisonment of 1515 months and there was for contempt of court. now, the constitutional court is the highest court in the land and it can't be appealed . so if the high court and peter merits, but to hear this application by the former president for a stay of that imprisonment order, it really would be unprecedented in that the high court potentially doesn't have to do jewess diction to make a judgement in this particular matter. but if that process goes ahead and the former president gets an interdict against that constitutional court judgement until he returns they apply to the constitutional court to have he's
12:12 pm
imprisonment, we seen that at least reconsidered. he said because of his age and he's on, well, if the high court rules in his favor, we know the arrest won't take place anytime between now and when the former president returns to the constitutional court specifically. however, if he doesn't get that into date, he could face arrest. we do know, according to that constitutional court order, the police commission as what someone has to police have orders to arrest. the former president veda says a lot of musing, moving parts jacobs. him has also, as we said, accused judges of bias with all of this, what message does that send about south africa's justice system? well, that's precisely why the constitutional court was quite clear in its judgement, saying that the former president has
12:13 pm
a significant presence in the country. and he and the position that he's held is one way he shouldn't be sending out that kind of message. this is about the rule of law and the supremacy of the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary. the former president has accused judge under whose overseeing a corruption, the inquiry. he's the chairman of that inquiry. he's accused him of bias is also been critical of the constitutional court as well, saying that he's been sentenced without trial. and this is exactly what the judiciary is trying to put across, that they're independent. that the former president has provided no evidence of any type of manipulation to florence. and that this is important to send the message to south africans that the courts, the independence they are justified in that decision. and the president, the former president shouldn't be saying the things he's saying because criticism is unwarranted and it's sending the wrong message to south africans. all right, thank you for that. they have made a miller live for us,

jobs going to get it. venezuela struggling with us sanctions and an economic crisis that is impacting its ability to fight against the deceive. the south american nation is part of the kovak system, which is a collaborative effort designed to help countries like venezuela get access to axioms. but that's proving to be a challenge. so far, it has only received around $3500000.00 doses from china and russia. and the countries currently testing thousands of dollars of vaccines from cuba. 2 months ago. callbacks announce payments made to the system by venice which had been blocked by the swiss bank u b. s. even though the biden registration said all related go with purchases were exempted from the sanctions. on sunday president, my daughter said the callback system has failed venezuela. not a company more asset. we fulfilled our promises 2 months ago, we gave them all our money by doing magic to liberate funds that were blocked. the
12:26 pm
government to the united states, then unblocked more money for us. and that money is there in an account on the co vaccines failed. the people that his way let about either you give us the vaccines will return all money at your earlier this year when he will reject it around 2000000 after authentic vaccines from callbacks due to safety concerns. but a proficient figure say, when will i could be accessing vaccines for free? miguel p. sarah, who's currently on excel, say, nicole, my ludo is to blame, let us on. but i can also don't know the name of the in the future benefits of the reasons why we don't have access to free vaccines like countries like syria sit down or yemen. countries that humanitarian emergency knowledge by the united nations. reason is the obscurity of statistics of numbers in front of the world bank, a numbers that show when banners, wherein jordan o bonanza. and that's not the case anymore. but i mean, as politicians bigger over who is to blame for the hardships in the country. millions of venezuelans are impatiently waiting for an opportunity to get the

12:28 pm
to get the jap can employers demanded. the short answer is yes. employers have a lot of freedom. employers in the u. s. can demand records of vaccination of proof of vaccination. they can of course ask employees if they've been vaccinated. employers can even go one step further and, and require vaccination of their employees. the hospital in houston did just that. he backseat mandate for employees over a $150.00 health care workers are refused, were fired or resigned. iep client has been practicing labor and employment law for over 30 years. she tells me there are only 3 groups of people that cannot be fired from their job for refusing the vaccine. someone with a disability. for example, somebody who is immunocompromised may not be able to get back to native, or if they get vaccinated, it, they may not have the anti bodies that are necessary to keep them likely to be covered free. let's say somebody on chemotherapy. so that might be somebody who
12:29 pm
can't be ex, native, or vaccinated, but still needs precautions. they might be out of the workplace. the others protected from firing or not getting vaccinated, or pregnant women. and anybody who's religious belief prevents vaccines for now, u. s. companies are still trading carefully. delta airlines is requiring new hires get vaccinated, but not explicitly demanding it of current employees. mcdonalds is offering for hours of paid time off for employees to get the jan new hires, and amazon are given a $100.00 bonus on their 1st day after showing proof of explanation. complicating matters further that delta variant, the highly infectious strain, now accounts for a quarter of all new cobra cases in the us and has seen some countries holt or even reverse their reopening plants. there is no one size fits all approach. of course labor laws differ country by country. but with the majority of us companies
12:30 pm
planning to call back employees to the office in the coming weeks. the us could be a test case on what works. and perhaps what doesn't. gabriel's dondo, i would use either new york. ah, this is alger there, and these are the top stories. the world health organization has one government against easing coven, 9 to restrict private 19 raw, the restrictions to soon several countries in europe, a relaxing rules, despite concerns about the highly contagious delta variant. but the w h o says the panoramic isn't over yet. further waves of infection could arrive later in the year .
