7:04 am
former president jacob zoom, i have no escalated to riots linked to increasing poverty and inequality. so of africa's banana 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 me. the miller, al jazeera johannesburg in now south korea just report that its highest daily infection counts since the pandemic began restrictions in the capital. so now at the highest level so far, where rob mcbride joins us live now from so i rob. so south korea is now facing even tougher restrictions nationwide. what is all of this mean on the ground? that's right here in the greatest sol metropolitan area. this is home to around half of south korea population. we've been under the most stringent measures since
7:05 am
the start of this week. but this is where most of the new cases are occurring. but there is increasing concern about what's going on out in the provinces with reports of new daily infections, more than doubling recently. and there's a real concern that as we get further into the summer holiday season, south koreans this summer, as they did last summer by and large, can't be taking that vacations overseas. so they tend to head for all of the coastal resorts on the east coast. the south coast, the island of gedge you, all of these a tourism destination is become very busy and there's a real concern that unless the government puts these greater restrictions in place across south korea, we're going to see more clusters in those areas. and the government believes that if they take action now this the latest 4th wave will peak in about one to 2 weeks . but by that stage, we might actually be seeing daily infections get more than 2000 per day,
7:06 am
which is high by south korean standards. yet robin south, south korea's back summation and program seems to have slowed right down just of the demand for jobs is now at an all time high. so that's right. this is being the subject of an awful lot of public criticism. the vaccination program, the government has been accused of being overly cautious, if not planning to get enough people vaccinated quickly enough. and it was always known that because of the supplies of vaccines coming in different batches, that july actually would be a lead time. and that's what we are seeing now. there is a shortage of vaccines around the government believes that from august onwards, the increased number of shipments are going to alleviate that is more vaccines become available. that was also concerned at the start of the program. there was some reticence about side effects that seem to have been replaced now by the more widespread concern about this 4th wave and about the ad delta barrier. so we are
7:07 am
seeing an increase in demands. and just as an example of that, this week, the vaccines are being rolled out to the latest target group. it's the 55 to 59 year old. as soon as the website we became active and people could apply to get the job of several 1000000 people who can apply around about 800000 of them. at one stage, we're all online trying to register for their 1st injection. alright, or run mcbride life in. so rob, thank you. on a lockdown in australia's biggest city that was due to end on friday has been extended by at least 2 weeks. sydney struggling to contain an outbreak of a highly contagious delta. various $97.00 new cases were reported in the past 24 hours under restrictions imposed last month. residents are only allowed to leave home for exercise, essential shopping or work and other months of declining infections cases on the rise in the united states. the search is being driven by the delta variant and slamming vaccination rates. my kind of has more from washington
7:08 am
d. c. the infection rate has now doubled within the last 3 weeks today. there were 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 they 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 it 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
7:09 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. meanwhile, germany says that it has no plans to make her own a virus vaccines, compulsory, but it will do it can to encourage people to get the job. chancellor angler merkel has warned that more people need to be vaccinated before the current restrictions can be lifted. 43 percent of the population is fully inoculated. but the pace of vaccination slowed in recent weeks. ado ish, i don't think that we would gain trust by changing tactics and introducing vaccination as
7:10 am
a compulsory measure. but i do think that we can gain trust by promoting vaccination. we also need to turn as many people as possible into promoters and messengers of vaccination, but still we have potential there. and we want to exploit that. the death toll from a fire that read through covered 900 isolation ward in the rocky city of nasiriyah has risen to 90 to the prime minister's promising accountability. it's the 2nd time in 3 months. the fire has torn through a hospital in iraq with the one had reports now from nasiriyah. angry and in morning heroic his betty the loved ones. the victims of the fire were mostly receiving treatment for covert 19 of the burned outward relatives arrived to help search for remains under the debris. they say the lack of safety equipment and an evacuation plan made the resistor worse than it normally at it. this is the
