soldiers are deployed the apprehended group of men, they suspect of shooting at them, searching for guns and other weapons. but the army on the street, these business owners say they feel safe to return to see what they've lost. they find their stores gutted by looting and fires the same. i believe i'm 30 years in this country, but i believe we do that in other parts of the halting province. there's also been and saluting doors add to the small in deep cloth. and so with all have been entirely ransack, there's nothing left and soldiers that police have been deployed to places just like this to try and protect whatever little is left and also keep looters away. but preventing the looting in many areas in johannesburg has proven difficult and appears to be impossible to stop. here. the grocery stores a butcher shop banks and atm completely destroyed. security guards say they try to

6:04 am
former president jacob zoom, i have no escalated to riots linked to increasing poverty and inequality. so of africa's bonanza varying stages of covert 19 locked down for more than a year. worsening unemployment, already at 52 percent, has field anger and resentment as a government that is struggling to cope for media miller, al jazeera johannesburg. now now south korea, just report that it's high as daily and affection counts since the pandemic began restrictions and the capital. so now at the highest level so far, rob ry jones has lived now from sol. rob. so south korea now facing even tougher restrictions nationwide. what does this mean on the ground? that's right. so the greatest sol metropolitan area,
6:05 am
which accounts for around half of south korea population that has been as since the start of this week under the highest level of restrictions, it means that after 6 pm, for example, that can be no gatherings outside of more than 2 people, so it's virtually an evening curfew for some parts of the city. a south in sol is where we're seeing most of the new cases. but there is a concern about what's happening in the provinces outside of sol, with a reports of new daily, new infections. more than doubling recently, so the government is concerned, especially as we approach the holiday season this year just last summer. south koreans cannot by and large take vacations abroad. they had for the destination. the resorts along the east coast in the south coast. places like judge you island or become very busy and the government's really concerned about seeing clusters in those places unless it takes action. now it is expecting with these new restrictions to see that this 4th way will probably peak around mid august,
6:06 am
and then the numbers dropping. but we may well see by that time, daily new infections being well over 2000 per day, which by south korean standards is really quite a high number. yeah, robin. south korea's vaccination program seems to float right down just of the demand for jobs is now at an all time high in the country. there's been an awful lot of criticism of the vaccination campaign here has been for months. the government's been accused of being overly cautious, really not planning ahead enough to vaccinate enough people quickly enough. and it was always known that july. there would be particularly a shortage of vaccines. and that is what we are seeing. the government is hoping that with various batches of vaccines that are in the pipeline, and it being delivered that from august onwards, the supply will increase. but of course, we are seeing this increasing demand of a lot of the reticence that existed when the vaccines were 1st rolled out about side effects. all that has been replaced by the much wider, widespread concern about this late to spike,
6:07 am
about the new delta barrier. so we are seeing a, for example, the, the website where people can register for their jobs at the latest age group to become, to get their jobs in the 55 to 59 year olds this week. literally when they website went live, it was inundated by at 180000 people or clamoring to register to get their 1st job . all right, rob mcbride life us there in. so rob, thank you. i look down in australia's biggest city that was due to end on friday has been extended by at least 2 weeks. sydney struggling to contain that outbreak of the highly contagious delta variant. 97 new cases were recorded in the past 24 hours under restrictions imposed last month. residents are only allowed to leave home for exercise, essential, shopping, or work. after months of declining infections cases on the rise in the united states, the surge is being driven by the delta strain on fleming vaccination rates. my county has moved from washington dc. the infection rate has now doubled within the
6:08 am
last 3 weeks today. there was some 23000 new cases reported as opposed to roughly 11000 on june the 23rd. there are a few reasons for this. firstly, delta barian has created a massive problem within the united states as it has in other countries. but what you've also had in between 2 is the july, the full holiday weekend, where there were large numbers of gatherings. so these are coming together to create this as flare up in infection rates within the united states. on the brighter side, perhaps deaths are running at about $250.00 a day. to put this into a context they were running around 3 and a half 1000 a day earlier in the winter. so clearly the vaccination has a massive impact in terms of restricting the number of this, even of those who contract the virus. but what is the problematic to is the
6:09 am
discrepancy, the geographical discrepancy within the united states? nationally, some 55 percent of americans have had at least one shot to the vaccine. but then there are a number of states that are very low vectors and rates such as mississippi, which is under 40 percent higher nevada. these are all states where the vaccine rates are incredibly low. and it is no coincidence that the rate of infection is much higher in those states than in others. the us vice president harris. i met with a group of democrats in the state of texas. they're hoping to derail a republican back to bill that would make it harder for people to vote. a group through to washington to deny the state legislature the numbers needed to vote on the bill. iris praise the move, comparing them to civil rights activists law, texas republicans are calling for the rent and democrats say proposals to limit voting rights will disproportionately affect minorities who usually vote. democrat, president biden, call the fight on a voting rights. the test of our time,
