trying to feed children that the government waived for his johnson's head. he utterly condemned the abuse and would amend football, bending orders that normally use to bar individuals to take part in. for example, races chanting or hooliganism from attending matches. now they'll cover online racism while johnson put the tech joints on. notice i made it absolutely clear to them that we will legislate to address this problem, mr. speaker, in the online home. no, unless they get, unless they get have an racism of the classrooms, they will say fine, i'm, i think to 10 percent of their global revenue. johnson refused to say whether he was wrong, not to condemn support, as he booed the england team before the tournament for taking the ne, an anti discrimination gesture. previously, he defended the fans right to do so. and he's home. secretary went further at the start of the euro's criticizing the team taking the ne. gotcha that supports you know, people participate in that type of gesture, gesture, politics,

9:35 pm
the president of brazil julia bolton arrow has reportedly been admitted to hospital after experiencing abdominal pain earlier in the day. local sources table sonata has been complaining about persistent hiccups and was taking the hospital to investigate the cause. he'll be under medical supervision for between 24 and 48 hours. a staggering number of americans have died from drug overdoses last year. adding to an already grim toll from the corona virus pandemic. there were more than 93000 deaths from overdose. he's nearly 30 percent more than in the year before. that's more than $250.00 deaths every day and about 11 per hour. 3 quarters of the deaths were due to a use of opioids. the majority of being attributed to fentanyl, that's a powerful synthetic opioid. it's 80 to a 100 times stronger morphine and heroine is becoming increasingly common for dealers to cut it into their other illicit drugs such as cocaine without the buyer
9:36 pm
of the cocaine knowing about its overdoses from opioids have been rising for decades now. but experts say the pandemic lead to a lack of access to treatment, increase social isolation, trauma, job losses, of course, making the situation for everyone much, much worse. let's talk to brandon marshall. he's an associate professor at brown university school of public health. he joins us from providence, rhode island, brenda marshall, welcome to al jazeera. i remember maybe a 2, maybe 3 of the trump administration. he was going to war against opioid addiction. what happened to that? thanks peter, for having me on the show. so, you know, this is a staggering an unprecedented loss of life over 93000 people died of a drug overdose in, in 2020. but as you indicated, we've been seeing these increases actually for more than 2 decades now in family, some of the actions the trump administration took to try to address this problem, probably made it worse. what we need now are major investments in harm reduction,
9:37 pm
evidence based treatment, and in dressing. many of those stressors that you mentioned that are affecting people who are suffering from addiction and at risk for overdose, like joblessness, social isolation and threats of addiction. and i suppose when covert hit in the u. s. just the same as it hit around the world that led to people being alone, people being lonely people sitting at home. people may be sitting at home, unemployed, living off savings. and if you've got an addiction and you are completely isolated, it's an easy go to, isn't it, to feed that addiction with the concurrent risk of overdosing? correct, using alone is a major risk factor for death. if no one is around to intervene in the event of that overdose, no overdose needs to result in death. we have tools that work like lock zone,
9:38 pm
which we're versus opioid overdose. and if someone is around, they can call 911, and all, and receive that person to receive emergency care. so all of that is probably and was probably less likely during the pandemic when people were experiencing social and physical isolation and using drugs alone. ok when you talk brandon about a lot because own give me a sentence, please just one sentence. what is a lock zone? no walks sown, also known as nar can, is an opioid overdose. antidote. it can be ministered internationally that is through the nose and effectively reverses the symptoms of an opioid overdose. ok can be minutes at this medication. could be administered by high standards or by medical professionals. so that is, that sounds like a wonderful thing, but it sounds to me like it's 5 fighting that's you know, somebody phones 911 and says, oh my god i, i think i've taken an overdose. please help. that's what happens. that person, that situation. what's the lessons from you're saying the front administration
9:39 pm
actually made the situation worse. so what are the lessons that we can learn from what the trumpet ministration did or didn't do, and how can that be applied now moving forward to deal with the underlying issues. we have millions of people in this country who are currently experiencing substance use disorders and treat. we do not have a robust, easily accessible treatment system in this country. many communities, particularly black and brown communities, experienced major barriers to accessing treatment. one thing we've seen during the colon pandemic is that federal regulators haverlack's some of those restrictions and improved access to these therapeutic via tele medicine for example. so that's a good start. i think we need to do a lot more now. what i'd like to see this administration tackle is greatly expand access to evidence based treatment for people who are not currently receiving at
9:40 pm
very briefly. brandon, that sounds like it's going to take an awful long time. yes, and i'm afraid we're going to be with this problem for years potentially decades, if we don't make major investments in recovery supports harm reduction programs and our treatment system in the united states. so we have a long way to go. i think we're seeing some initial investments, which is good at the federal level, but we need to see a lot more focus in action on this problem to start to bend that curve of overdoses in our nation. a disturbing story. thank you for coming on to talk to brandon. we do appreciate the marshall that's talking to us from rhode island. thank you. us vice president, come, harris met a group of democrats from the state of texas. today they're hoping to stop a republican bank to build that would make it harder for people to vote. more than 50 democrats who to washington to deny the state legislature the numbers it needs to vote on the bill. it's called a quorum. commer harris praise to move,
9:41 pm
comparing them to civil rights activists. well, texas, republicans, a calling for their arrest republican state politicians around the country have imposed or they are trying to impose a variety of restrictions on voting rights. in the 1st 6 months of this year, 17 states, most of them republican lead inactive new laws, restricting access to the votes. now those include changes to the rules from mainland boating and 12 states making it harder for people to cost the balance that way. and at least 8 states seventy's laws making it harder to vote in person of those 3 brought in a new or harsher boat to id requirements. and they could be more around 60, more bills are still in process in 18, state legislatures, republican say, all this is needed to fight election fraud. but after the u. s. election last year, there's almost no evidence at all to show that any fraud actually took place or exists. democrats say the real purpose is to keep people who usually vote for them
9:42 pm
away from the voting booths, a sweeping election reform bill that would have blocked many state level restrictions past the us house in march. but senate republicans blocked it with a filibuster. royce west is a democratic texas state. senna said he was at that meeting with cala harris on tuesday. he told me earlier, the state democrats have no intention of returning and the white house is firmly on their side. we have a president that is committed to make certain that elections voting is accessible to every american. he understands exactly what's going on in this country. as you've said, the 70 states that have passed harsh laws to suppress the vote. and there's not a team that's attempting to do so, so that's a national issue. i'm glad to have a president that's committed to doing everything in his power. in order to get something done. congress does have the power and right now they don't have the
9:43 pm
means in order to get it done. we're going to have to prevail upon and make certain that democrats in the senate understand that we're on bar time in texas right now. and if they fail to act, then obviously we may very well end up with age or county and voting bill that is acceptable and repressive and suppressive to persons in the state of texas . be they ethnic minority, be they now disable. be they elderly persons, women. the reality is, is that we've had a attorney general for a truck basically said it was most secure election that we've ever had. history. that's number one at the federal level. and at the state level, we had a secretary of state, was nominated by the current governor to be secretary state, the chief administrator of the elections. she said the same thing are radically her nomination was ever called up by republicans and the state of texas using denise
9:44 pm
the predicate. there is no issue of fraud or false identification of persons coming to the polling places in order to vote. therefore, if there is no issue based on current id laws that we have in the state of texas, why do we need additional ones? royce, we're talking to us just a little earlier. now the number of refugees and migrants dying in the mediterranean has more than doubled from this time. last year. at least 1146 people died trying to reach europe by see in the 1st 6 months of 2021. that's compared to the $513.00 migrants were known to the ground in the 1st 6 months of last year. those figures are believed to be much lower than the actual number. there are hundreds of cases of so called invisible ship wrecks reported by organizations in direct contact with those on board or with families. but they are difficult to verify international organization for migration which tracks the data says. there
9:45 pm
are insufficient search and rescue operations in the mediterranean and on the atlantic route to the canary islands. andrew garcia as a data analyst for the missing migrant project to the international organization for migration. she explained to me earlier, why it's that difficult to determine the true number of people last, let's see on. yes, i wanted to kinda re, oh, get lost that be because they run out of your and then they just straight off or weeks at the sea. so people usually pass away from dehydration and so on, in the mediterranean, it's more likely that big ships actually, but there was a shipwreck, right? so people around, so the, it depends on the route what happens to the people. but the problem at the end is that, that from the available data, the central me to your random risk continues more dangerous for people crossing it . however,
9:46 pm
we know though we have larger data gaps yet plan roots. so it might as well be that one is the most dangerous one. we just don't know it yet. i think that long term solution requires many things, right? the 1st thing that requires a more practice search and rescue operation both in the mediterranean and in the atlantic. it should be a lead and restriction on both should be lifted, but also there. and the long term solution requires better migration management and better policy, both in origin and destination countries. so in europe, more solidarity would be maybe to iranian countries. it's also the cerebral the european commission has revealed its latest plans to tackle climate change and cut carbon waste emissions in half. within the next 9 years, it introduced a dozen draft proposals in an effort to push the block towards go and becoming carbon neutral by 2050. they include plans to tax jet fuel and ban the sale of
