7:18 pm
from jakarta. well, some doctors here say that from their perspective, the health care system in indonesia has already become very, very close to collapse because they are in the unfortunate position of having to turn away critically ill patients because they don't have room for them. as hospitals as close to full capacity, it's not just the public hospitals that are struggling, but also some of the public health clinics. and the intention would be that some of those clinics would pick up some of that overflow of patients that the hospitals can not taken, but they too was struggling. some of those public health clinic workers have told us that they are understaffed under resource. they don't have enough medication or oxygen for all the sick patients in their local areas. we've heard from local roving medics who try to visit some of the patients in need. and they say that they have sadly become accustomed to finding patients dead in their home. these patients, many of them did not even have the prospect of medical intervention. they did not
7:19 pm
even have the chance to speak with a doctor. so that is the to get the situation here. know the numbers us concerning as they are. some local data agencies say that the government numbers are very much an under estimate and by their estimates, the confirmed death toll which as the government states, it is around $70000.00 by their estimates. the death toll is actually around 5 times higher. well, cases of code 19 searching across the continent of africa that's according to the world health organization. the number of deaths has jumped 43 percent over the last week compared to the week before that the w h chose regional director for africa says hospitals in the most affected areas. on nearing a breaking point and running out of oxygen and i see you beds nearly half of new davy cases on the continent or in south africa, libya, too, nicea and mozambique also have high numbers that to live now to decor and correspond. nicholas hark. joining us live from deca. so nick,
7:20 pm
what regions or countries are faring the worst here? do we think? well, there are, obviously, as you mentioned, south africa where half of the cases are from. but there's also countries in the north of africa, tunisia, algeria, tunisia where hospital health workers say that the, the health system is on the brink, that they don't have enough beds or oxygen to receive the, the venue infections or infections in each and every region, despite nationwide locked down with the 2 nations reaching out to the diaspora to try to fund oxygen tanks. that picture is not any better in neighboring algeria where despite a curfew in place, there's a spike of cases there. and what's interesting here, peter is we're seeing cases not just in the cities are in the capitals, but also in rural areas,
7:21 pm
rural them bob way or in the eastern part of kenya. suggesting that this delta variant is spreading fast and quickly throughout the continent. a 1000000 people have been infected in the last month alone. and as you mentioned, 43 percent, 42 percent increase in death from last week. there were 10 countries that had the delta, the very last week. now they are $21.00 countries, and the fear is with the, the, the muslim celebrations of e next week that there will be even more cases, especially here in senate, go with the ministry of health has alerted the public to, to be wary to keep the distances but the simple fact is, the government here are not equipped to, to deal with the onslaught of the delta. various peter, why is the vaccination rollout going so slowly in some regions
7:22 pm
was sensually the promises made by rich countries have not been fulfilled. and so, for instance, last week, peter, i tried to get back to myself here in a health center. well, they ran out of stock, and this is the case, not just here in san diego. and most of the countries throughout the, throughout africa there simply aren't enough vaccine to go around to vaccinate people. add to that the fact that there's a great deal of skepticism towards the astrazeneca vaccines. specifically, the d r c received 1700000 doses. just a few months ago, it gave away 1300000 vaccines and the minister of health there said that people were just fearful of getting vaccinated out to that. the, this, this, this idea that the vaccines, the astrazeneca vaccines here are not recognized by the european authority. so for african travelers court trying to go to your bill. that's a great deal. difficult for them. the fear is for scientists and researchers is that if there are not more people vaccinated,
7:23 pm
then the delta variant will mutate in something more deadly. and something that will propagate and spread more quickly. and that's what's that stick with the vaccination here. and so there was calls for more vaccine to come to the continent . peter, nick, thank you very much. nicholas on the reporting for us from deco. now there's been a sharp increase in children around the world. we've missed out on basic vaccines as a result of disruptions caused by the corona, virus pandemic, the world health organization. and unicef saying 23000000 children missed out on routine jobs, leaving them vulnerable to diseases such as measles, polio, and meningitis, oscar and is chief of programs and services, the national association of county and city health officials. he says, a lack of routine vaccinations could lead to other types of outbreaks as countries continue to reopen. not only is the need to ensure that folks and children and
7:24 pm
get the necessary vaccinations, but we've also seen the rise and backing hesitancy and vaccine. poor confidence to black edward and as a result amplified with the lack of access due to both the locked down for cetera, in the 1st few months. 2020, even here the u. s. we saw sharp decrease in the number of children who are getting their vaccines, the regular routine vaccination. so it was quite important to ensure that providers understand that they should still be trying their best to ensure both well visits and prioritize. especially for the pediatric cases, the opportunity to get those children's back to me. it is the hope that we can really get these providers. and as you can see this problem, it's now worldwide. it's not just one particular h d, and then of course it just doesn't necessarily mean that it's tony. those impoverished short about the nation. it's actually everyone pad this tremendous
7:25 pm
impact. the concern, of course, is as we think of, we're reopening or we close. and depending on where you are, the likelihood of other outbreaks to occur, that's why it's so vital to really build this wall of defense, especially upon our most vulnerable population. our children, the colombian president says most of the colombian x soldiers accused in the assassination of the haitian leader, were not aware of the plots, even to case that a small number of the men did have detailed knowledge of the mission. but most belief they were trying to haiti as bodyguards, president joe and lucy was separated a week ago from miami and to galico has the latest on the investigation. we heard the have authorities talking about trying to catch the mastermind behind this. and then i'll claiming a man called christian son on who is a doctor and pastor who spent most of his life between here in florida and haiti. is that mastermind. he has been arrested over the weekend. he hasn't been charged
7:26 pm
yet. but there are questions swirling about this. what is emerging as the central character? this is the pastor and doctor who lived here in florida had several fail businesses which raises the question, how would a man like this even raise the capital needed to allegedly hire assassins? to carry out this operation of getting way to job norma, we see was the president. so it is a very confusing situation at the moment, but it certainly seems to be widening all the time. one central figure now being blamed for this, arrested and not charged. i'm seeing some reports that christine sent on did have meetings to talk about what would happen once as you have now, i'm always stepped down. he did have a political ambitions, but he says that he simply wasn't involved those close to him, so he would never do this kind of thing. no, possibly, could he even finance something like this was this investigation goes on. it is casting a wide net, even some of you have normal ways as close police officers insecurity detail.
7:27 pm
they've been arrested. so a lot of confusion, no real evidence to say who carried out this attack. but thankfully, at the moment, things in haiti do seem to be secure, which i think is the biggest concern for ordinary haitians. ok, bank to europe to france, where the top criminal court in that country because of appeal, has delayed its ruling on whether one of the country largest companies can be investigated of allegations of crimes against humanity for its operations in syria between 20122014 at the time, the cement maker, lafarge caps, it's frank, re open in the northeast of the country, despite the threats of arm groups including iso in the region. last year civilians on both sides of the disputed nagondo cut of our region were caught up in the worst fighting the in more than 25 years. and despite a ceasefire between armenia and as a by sean, there are still concerns about another casualty of war. cultural heritage sites. russell set up reports now from as
7:28 pm
a by john now gonna cut about maybe small in size, but the disputed region is rich in cultural and religious heritage. these 100 year old monuments however, have seen better days lockers in the shoulder. hundreds of monuments and historical sites in this region have been damaged, vandalized, or destroyed during the 30 years of war. the thousands of graveyards, the historical educational institutions, museums, then now unrecognizable. the 1st publication house, which was established in the 19th century, is ruin of the russian orthodox church of july or moscow. the church of albania. dimly moscow and morality shrine from the 13th century, also damaged to mr. sort of in the immediate aftermath of the seas fire that ended last year's war between us be john and armenia. cultural institutions. and scholars was concerns. they said hundreds of historical mosques, church monasteries, monuments and museums could be at risk. i mean,
7:29 pm
you see is between 19972006 of their b. johnny forces damaged or destroyed thousands of the historical sites including medieval charts and graveyards, enact javan. but as r b j says the cultural damage on his side became more apparent after its armed forces recapture territories. armenia had controlled since 1993 and that the secure of the destruction 2 sites including most and libraries, is bigger than expected exports. believe cultural reconciliation is still possible in no go no cut up. despite the dismal record of the past 3 decades, both sides have demonstrated every interest and even admiration of heritage that isn't their own. lot of it in some of the war does not kill only soldiers and civilians, but also historical heritage. there's no insurance for this heritage. both muslim and christian heritage of this region have been vandalized. we have to be
7:30 pm
meticulous to careful not to further harm the historical cultural, sorry, a mutual respect is what we need. and i believe both sides have learned a lesson that this destructive war that should not be a never ending circle, which destroys our common history. buried within these buildings are centuries, are shared tradition, culture and history of a people who today called themselves by 2 different names. although the guns are mostly silent, either be john and armenia are still a long way from peace. and many people here hope that the historical treasures of no go nor cra, don't also become casualties of war, let alone cause for another. this was out of that for job and other very john, ah, this is down to 0. these are your top stories. after i was of negotiations, the afghan taliban and the pakistani government have agreed to reopen one of the
7:31 pm
main border crossings. while i was stranded people through the tunnel and captured these spin bolduc crossing on wednesday. it's f canister on 2nd busiest entry points and.
