managing their budget and really police in south africa preparing for another day of the rest of the riot, sparked by the jailing of former president jacob zoom, or at least 72 people have been killed in the protest which had grown into a much wider show of anger against poverty and inequality. soon found a she says they'll be no peace until he is released from jail. to meet him in a report from johannesburg say, of looting and riots group alexandra township. in the north of johannesburg, police struggle to keep people away, but those temporarily disappeared by rubber coated bullets and p, i guess, returned within minutes. hours later, 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
12:07 pm
find their stores gutted by looting and fires the same. i believe i'm here in this country, but i believe it is up in other parts of the halting province. there's also been extensive looting. c doors at the small in deep cliff and so with all have been entirely ransacked. 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. grocery stores a butcher shop, banks and atm completely destroyed. security guards say they try to keep looters away as they waited for the police. but it was too late, smart, shabby, worked at this food outlet. now i'm english because where,
12:08 pm
what am i supposed to do for now? where am i going to get paid? where's most likely going to come from? because this is my landlord. hi, not gonna support my family because of this and what and they came enough that have been the, i'm paging this place and the police with no way to be seen with why it's and the disruption of services in the hosting and quote natal provinces. their concerns, people will run out of food. they are many unhappy with the destruction. i don't know where am i going to fight? i don't know, as you can see that this bed, and there is a situation. people are not liking, but this is not the solution. the protests that began after the jailing of former president jacob zoom. i have not escalated to riots linked to increasing poverty and inequality. south africa has been under varying stages of covert 19
12:09 pm
locked down for more than a year. worsening unemployment already at 32 percent has field anger and resentment after government that is struggling to cope or made emitter joined us. now live from johannesburg for me to as you said, police have been bracing for more unrest. what's the situation like that this morning? well, some spots in johannesburg where there been a lot of riots. i have come to some extent this morning, but they are still concerns, especially around the province of consumer natal, where they continues to be looting as well as rioters sitting a number of businesses and warehouses on fire. we do see a significant police and military deployment, but also what we're increasingly hearing from people. and also what we've heard in the package earlier was around the lack of response from police. and rather that it
12:10 pm
seems to be reactionary rather than preventative. and people are saying this more and more that they simply aren't enough boots on the ground in fact. and because they're gonna tell the agricultural industry as well as the chamber of commerce and the number of other business industries of starting to cool for a state of emergency, specifically in that province. and that's not what we've heard from president phil romo poyser in the last couple of days when the address of africans, rather urging people to be to abide by the law, to be vigilant. and also we know that police have said that they are in gauging with communities to try and prevent the kind of unrest and disruption the looting that we've seen in the last few days. the police of a say that they've also deployed, move police on the ground, calling people back from leave and race days. and this really indicates just how disc, but they are becoming clearly lying on the intervention of soldiers to try and assist
12:11 pm
and also protect them in their jobs. we are expecting the riots in the day considering the difficulty police are having and trying to manage the situation. ok, i mean, as you've been reporting for me to this is sort of turned into a wider show of anger against poverty and inequality. i'm wondering why we've witness so much of the unrest in these 2 provinces rather than across the rest of the country. well, as we know, those demonstrations began in was due to natal and that's the home province of the former president, jacob's duma who was arrested last week. and that immediate reaction was in response to that. and that, of course, is escalated in the last few days to these with greater protests, demonstrations and riots against heightening joblessness and also worsening
12:12 pm
economic condition in south africa coating where we are is the economic cub of south africa. a lot of people travel to helping seeking jobs, looking for employment, and especially under the cold, with 19 locked down. many people have either not been able to find work or lost the jobs they have. and we're seeing increasing desperation in provinces like halting. we know that been small incidence in places like longer and the northern cape police have said they've deployed will police to those areas to try and prevent an escalation of those incidence. but the density of people in halting and also the, the connection that the former president has to presume natal might be able to explain why we've seen an escalation in these incidents in those particular province. but it provinces, but it doesn't mean that police aren't on high alert and there's concern about splitting. it hasn't get to a significant point,
12:13 pm
but they certainly are concerns. i thank you very much for that for me to millet law for us in johannesburg. cuba has restricted access to social media and messaging apps of the widespread anti government protest there. same media says one man was killed during demonstrations and have on the, on monday, thousands miles on sunday to protest against an economic crisis. and the government's handling of the pandemic keep as president is accusing the us and cuban americans of encouraging protests read. lindsey is a cuba based journalist. he says the government is accusing the us of spreading misinformation. the board minister spoke to data for journalists and he actually, i'd say government waging. ready a big news campaign and presented a slide showing our or thousands of going out a creative social media campaign which, which, which was going on when,

12:22 pm
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 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. there was also a concerned at the start of the program. there was some reticence about side effects that seems to have been replaced now by the more widespread concern about this 4th wave and about the ad delta very. and so we are seeing it increasing
12:23 pm
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, that is 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. of a month of declining infections, cases are on the rise in the united states. the 3rd is being driven by the delta variance and slowing vaccination rates. my can has more from washington d. c. the infection rate has now doubled within the 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 variant 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,
12:24 pm
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 at 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 be problematic to is the 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
12:25 pm

12:27 pm
14 republican controlled states have enacted laws the restrict voting access. they say the measures combat widespread voter fraud. they claim was prevalent in 2020. texas is the latest thing to restrict voting. texas democrats fled to washington d. c. to stop a vote on a proposed law that they say would make it harder to cast a ballot measures. biden is under pressure to stop. you make commitment said you're going to do this or do that. i think commit to that, followed through that's the most important part. following give us this person. people are right to say you can vote a certain you cannot do it. if you cannot go out, it's not like it's been proven, is making it work. we should be adding through to make it better, make it easier, open, more full, more location, make it easier for l in not trying to tell your hand in blindfolding vote, that's making it worse. that's like going back to the i want to say flavors. biden's urging congress to pass to federal measures to do just that. he's also
