5:02 pm
presented joins us now on the program. 2 weeks ago before the olympics thought this was kind of expected. what impact is it going to have on athletes and their performances? yeah, so the quality product was expected. i think we all saw this coming. impact is going to have well i think from athletes point of view, consider that they train not just for 4 years between olympics but many of them. they've been training the whole lives for this moment. and you would want to think that winning a middle, whether it be gold, silver, bronze, if the kind of thing that you, you enjoy in front of a crowd, especially in athletics and swimming, some of the other schools well, but especially those 2, those are the 2 flagship events at the olympic games. 80000 people in the swimming arena, maybe 15000 people cheering your name perhaps. and that is gone. that will not be at tokyo. 2020. but for some of the event it doesn't really make a difference. that events like fencing. yeah, exactly. i mean they all certain sports which are a lot smaller, more nice. you know,
5:03 pm
the kind of things that only really get attention every 4 years and in between. i don't want to say nobody caves, but it doesn't get the kind of attention that, that, that it would perhaps like i've been seen being a very good example of that. and in both cases, while the athletes are actually playing or competing, the crowd is expected to keep quiet. so, you know, from an atmosphere point of view doesn't really make a difference. but again, once a full done and medals are being handed out, you'd like to get an applause from, from the car that's not going to be happening in the japanese. because committee president has apologized to to people who have bought their tickets already. what impact is this going to have financially on revenue? i imagine it's going to be costly for sure. well, it's gonna hit them. it's not going to hit the international olympic committee because the i a see already has its money from broadcasting and sponsorships between the $2.00 of them you're looking at around $15.00 to $18000000000.00. however, the ticket sales, that is where the japanese organizing committee loses its money, you looking at anything up through around $800.00 to $900000000.00. and that
5:04 pm
unfortunately is going to have to be paid by the japanese taxpayer. peter, thank you very much for that. not earlier i spoke to dan always who's a sportswriter with the japan times. he says the announcement is hugely disappointing for olympic fun. then for japan as a whole this was supposed to be our shining moment. this was supposed to be a huge moment for, for tokyo, for japan. so much effort has gone into preparing the capital to host these games, the infrastructure, the emphasis on improving service, fir, inbound tourists. everything that has changed in the city over the last decade has been in anticipation of diesel and picks. and now it's going to be a lot of them t stadium. i think that holding this without holding to games, that is the easiest way for organizers to get this event across the finish line. just like the runners,
5:05 pm
just like every other competitor at the games with minimal risk to the health and safety of the athletes and all other kids. parents, by taking away the fans, you're reducing the need for staffing or reducing the number of volunteers who need to be on site. and you're reducing the strain on the public transit system. it makes sense just turn the logistical perspective, but obviously these aren't going to be a game that are, it's not going to create a sense of excitement. you're not going to have the festival atmosphere that we've seen in rio in london in engaging in athens before that. so it is really disappointing. several countries in asia have reported record numbers, of course, 19 infections in recent days. the region appears to be in a 4th wave of the pandemic. it's believe that the highly transmissible delta vary and just to blame the surgeon straining medical resources across the region to their limits. tony chang reports deserted streets in the city of ray lee. of the
5:06 pm
chinese authorities imposed a lockdown. the city on the border with me and my has seen a sudden rising cases in recent days. mass testing is down a way to try and hold the spread, which is thought to originate across the border. inside me on mar itself, the current situation is deteriorating quickly. but instability following the military coup has meant testing and treatment have almost ground to a halt. medics have been targeted by the military because their role in the civil disobedience movement and many have been forced into hiding all, all the huge eagles due to all actions in the ear. but we have to can criminal overnight by the military in indonesia greater transparency. but that has only revealed tens of thousands of daily infections. oxygen supplies of runs so low that many hospitals have had to
5:07 pm
suspend admissions. some patients now relying on private supplies, the film much needed canisters, the hotel. we need oxygen because one of our family members is experiencing breathing difficulties and we are running out of it. that's why i have to queue. we need it badly. even in south korea, the country noted for its effective response to cove at 19 infections, or reaching record levels. the government will uphold existing social distancing rules for next week and do our best to stop to spread by taking extra disinfection measures. new supplies of vaccine arriving in the capital, sol, sent from israel across asia. there's a rush to secure and distribute vaccines as quickly as possible. but with supplies limited, it feels like a race against time. as cove 19th, delta variance swamped asia in a both way. so the change else is there a bank up in the u. k, the government is eating restrictions for people who are fully vaccinated and those
5:08 pm
returning from countries are made medium risk. amber less will no longer be required to quarantine in a hotel upon the rival, a sole part of the u. k. 's easing of koby 19 restrictions for brandon has the latest london given the fact that the you case vaccination program has been so widespread and successful. and then the 65 percent of u. k. adults are now fully vaccinated with both doses of the relevant corona, virus vaccine. so there's been massive pressure on the government to actually start relaxing those restrictions. and that's what the transport secretary, the government minister responsible for the transport has announced today. what he said is that from july 19th, u k. residents who are returning to the u. k to england, specifically, will not have to isolate upon their return. they'll still have to test before they depart from spain or portugal. they will have to fill out the passenger locator forms and they will still have to test within 2 days of arriving back at home. but
5:09 pm
they will not crucially, they will not have to stay at home and, and self isolate. and that was seen that the major deterrent the transport secretary also said that it will not apply to international arrivals into the u. k . let's have a listen to the clarification. the change i'm announcing today will prioritize those vaccinated in the united kingdom. however, as i make clear last week, we want to welcome international. this is back to the new k and a working to extend our approach to vaccinate passengers from important markets and also holding estimation later to summer, such as the united states and the e u. and i'll update the house in due course on how we approach vaccinated individuals from other countries to the fact that this is just u. k. residents returning home is a source of some ice. there's also about the potential cues that are going to build up with this extra paperwork necessary. the passenger locates the form for example, and now the need to prove negative and passport status vaccination. passport that
5:10 pm
already been big cues at u. k. airports. the fear is that they could, they could be extended and become really quite serious and burdensome. and the other thing is the possibility that a variance may be created essentially a new variance as yet discovered by allowing people to mix in this way. so there's the ross, it's not an unbridled well can. there are still a few concerns out that and avenues felice in haiti say they've killed 4 suspects believe to be involved in the assassination of president, given animal ease security official said they were involved in a gun battle with an armed group. police also arrested 2 other men, but did not provide any information about those in cassidy ways was shot during a raid on his home. on wednesday, the trim prime minister closures f. a said the crime will not go unpunished. last in jordan has our report. the family of haitian president shows no moiz will not be able to hold an open casket. funeral assassin shot him several times in the head in

latest information, his date is stable, he voices, death came as he was in the middle of a political crisis. parliament had been suspended for the past 2 years. and opponents accused moyes of trying to undermine the constitution of the us back boys as decision to stay in power for one more year, just as long as elections took place on time a lot more information, but it's very worried about the state, even as the investigation begins into our prime minister close joseph and the man moiz had picked to succeed him are fighting over who's in charge moiz, his widow marcin was flown to the us to recover from her injuries. but haiti's border with the dominican republic is now closed. the authorities have shut down the airport until further notice raising questions about how haiti will recover from this attack on the body politic was on jordan elgin's era. washington and alan

fisher joined us from washington allen. there's going to be a you and meeting on haiti later. thursday, what can we expect from that? all the ice and moral capitals are on hey t at the moment. certainly there's going to be a behind closed doors briefing at the united nations in the next couple of hours that was planned. on wednesday, they will be updated no doubt about the events overnight with 4 gunman being killed to being arrested after that stand off with on police and haiti. the what coming from haiti is that the 2 people arrested where to use their words, foreigners. now the united nations could possibly get involved in haiti, they did it before. there was an intervention force there to try to bring come to the country between 20042017. that was controversial than the certainly would be reluctant to get involved again, but they might well be forced to now the united nations, along with a number of other heads of government have said that the appealing for com, the one wise head to prevail. but of course,
5:14 pm
there's the difficulty there. we are seeing a power struggle already. on one hand, you have ariel henry, who was due to be sworn in by the president on wednesday morning. that didn't happen. and claude joseph, who was the prime minister, who was essentially fired by the president. i was due to be placed on wednesday morning now ariel. henry says that it is an extraordinary situation, but he is in the prime minister's office at the moment. what is interesting is that when tony blink and who is the us, secretary of state made his call to haiti to express his condolences for the death of the president. but also to our com and suggest the elections due to go ahead lead to the she should go ahead the person he called with claude joseph. so it seems that the international community for the moment regard claude joseph as the acting prime minister. but of course, everyone is waiting to see how things develop over the next 24 hours the united states, the united nations. and of course mainly the people in alan. thank you. alan fisher live in washington. still ahead on al jazeera,

5:19 pm
foundation announced that he had decided to comply with the incarceration order given by the constitutional court a week ago. until now, the former president had resisted arrest. he was supposed to have given himself in last sunday when that didn't happen. police were instructed to arrest jacob's humour. but there were concerns around safety and potentially volatile situation around and con, blanket through natal, with a former president has a homestead and where he does enjoy significant support. now to avoid any type of confrontation between police and supporters. the former president then took a convoy with his protection service to this correctional facility and escort also inquisitive natal. he's now handed himself in,
5:20 pm
he's being processed and it's likely this is where he will spend at least the 1st few days of the sentence. because once that processing is completed, authorities determine the most suitable correctional facility or commendation for the former president, given he's age and his health. he had previously said that he shouldn't be in prison because he's 79 years old. he's unwell and south africa is currently going through a 3rd wave of the covered 19 pandemic. you will know that you as the former president, he has a presidential protection unit and they brought him to us. but now we have to take over it to ensure that he's in custody safe custody, and also will have to respond to his special needs. if any happiness identified, take him through my and his legal team have submitted an application to be heard by
5:21 pm
the constitutional court next week. and that's where he's hoping that either the judgment made that has found him guilty of contempt of court will be rescinded. or at least his sentence reduce from 15 month. but before that he does have a pending application at the high court in pre to merits where he had us for the arrest not to happen, but that judgement is only due on friday. and that's why the former president has been incarcerated. legal experts say the likelihood of that particular case being successful, very slim. and so the next time we could, blue hill from the former president is next week when his lawyers represent him at the constitutional court. possibly in litigation of the sentence, even though it's after the fact either way for many solve africans, it may be almost unbelievable that jacob's doom of the former president who hasn't

if already said the fire has been brought under control and there were no deaths or injury fuse fighting is continuing between afghan forces and taliban fighters in the north western province of 5 days. the afghan government has now sent hundreds of commandos to the area of taliban launch. a major assault on the provincial capital kalokie now and briefly took control of it on wednesday. a group has been on a blistering campaign to capture territory as us forces continue to pull out of a country. mark came. it was a brigadier general in the u. s. army. he believes despite the taliban advance, the afghan government is a long way from collapsing. i think everybody realizes the taliban have a marvellous strategic communications plan. they are going to pick off these targets. they're going to advertise that heavily. social media is going to pick it up. the wordpress is going to pick it up and they're going to turn it into a story about the fall of math canister in. but i think that there's
5:27 pm
a lot of fight left in the national security forces. and this fight has got a long way to go, and hopefully there will be a piece resolution before the situation gets so dire as to perhaps threaten cobble for the u. s. and the coalition in the middle east is going to be to try to support over the horizon, not actually put boots on the ground. but i think the analogy is rac in 2014, it was clear that the iraqi government was falling to a very small but determined group of vices. they invited the united states back in the united states forces are still there. i don't think the president biden wants to be known as the president. the last stuff can a stand. so i'm, i strongly believe that if, if there was a request that came from the government, the binding ministration would probably look at that favorably, maybe not give the afghans everything they want, but would certainly get the americans back in to help out. the canfield festival is
