10:04 pm
people are saying that this might happen like for now every 510 years or something like that. i'm not sure. and i mean like we try to learn from this to gather with relatives and friends. louisa who young is trying to clean up the mess at the family house, not knowing where to start. they try to return on thursday, but had to leave once again. the water was still here, we tried to get in the house and get everything up on the highest point in the house. so and then we just grab also some stuff that we could see that we knew, okay, this is important. and now we just left the extent of the damage wont be known for days or perhaps weeks, but the memories and trauma of this twist of nature will likely remain with the people here for much longer, steadfast and al jazeera syncing in the western part of germany while sharon natasha butler is a 100 kilometers west across the border in the belgian city of layers,
10:05 pm
which has also been badly hit by the floods. where is this neighborhood vancho in the pacific? oh yes, it is one of the worst effects today or is in the city what some residents have been telling me that even though they've lifted the decades, they've never seen anything like this. they say the war. so basically flows down the street and there was such a force that furniture along with some folks around cause as if they were moved toys where the water level rose for about 2 meters. people now are simply trying to clean up the own salvage what they can. they're obviously extremely shaken. if we go through what it was so scary to see the war, to rise my car in the garret, which is totally destroyed. there was water all the way up to here. well some streets in the area are still flooded and roads are still inaccessible to cause and to vehicles. and that is why the only way of accessing some houses is by
10:06 pm
boat. well, the prime minister, belgium has called the floods unprecedented, and a school for dave national morning on july 20th the victims. ah. now because the cases are rising in all us states and officials say the surge is largely and on vaccinated people. factions are up 70 percent in the last week, and deaths of jumped by 26 percent. sandra, lease county is again, making mosque, wearing mandatory indoors from this weekend. many universities are only letting fully inoculated staff and students return to campus. there is a clear message that is coming through. this is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated. we are seeing outbreaks of cases in parts of the country to have low back the nation coverage because unvaccinated are at rest. and
10:07 pm
communities that are fully vaccinated are generally bearing well right to go live to white house correspondent. kimberly, how can tell us more about the cove, its situation that kimberly, because it seems as though while infection rates are rising everywhere, there is a concentration in places where oxidation rates as part of the white house press secretary and saki, wrapping up her briefing shortly. a short time ago, and what she said was that what the data is showing to the white house is that most of the deaths that the united states to seeing now related to cope with 1997 percent of the death was hospitalized. ations are among the and vaccinated, in other words, the death, the hospitalization are preventable and that is what the white house is so concerned about. now, one of the big areas of concern also remains rural communities. in fact, there are 5 states that really seem to be sort of hot spots right now in the u. s.
10:08 pm
and they're largely rural and among rural population. so the question becomes, given the fact that many of these people are vaccinated because they don't live in close proximity to a pharmacy, they don't live near the hospital or any sort of other public health care provider, how are they supposed to get vaccinated? that is something the white house is still working on, and to a large extent, what they're doing is continuing campaign they've been doing for some time in the cities. now sort of trying to concentrate some of these rural areas going to events that for example, like nascar, which is a racing car sport here in the united states in order to try and meet people as the white house says where they are. and that has been this growing concern about misinformation or inaccurate information about vaccines. how much of a threat is this coming to people's house? well, it's a very big concern. in fact, on thursday gives me the search in general of the united states. vivid murphy was
10:09 pm
in fact talking about how the white house is leading the effort to reach out to social media companies like facebook for example, facts of white house press secretary today saying that this is something they're doing because they are concerned that facebook simply isn't enforcing its own guidelines, in other words, when there's information the science has said is in accurate, facebook is allowing it to linger if you will. and so the concern is not only from perhaps public users that are spreading misinformation, but the white house, and it's also saying that both china and russia has been assisting in this sort of misinformation campaign with respect to vaccine. so the white house pushing very hard on this, but also getting some push back. the given the fact that social media is a public platform or purports to be the concern being that it is stifling free speech, the white house denies this. it says and simply trying to save lives. all right,
10:10 pm

10:11 pm
recover. joan all has worn out from london on the plans to ease restrictions. the public are generally quite worried about that, and that's because they can well see that it is highly questionable at this moment how much freedom there is from the virus itself. infection rates are climbing rapidly this week, getting an average of around 50000 a day. the highest they've been in 6 months, the new health secretary says the job it predicted they could easily hit a 100000 a day during the course of this 3rd way, most of those new infections, of course, are happening in the unvaccinated population. the young children, most of those are young and fit enough to emerge relatively unscathed, but not old death numbers are rising to averaging around 50 a day. that's a big jump in the last few weeks with the result that among the vaccinated population, among the vulnerable in that population,
10:12 pm
there is real anxiety about what lies ahead. 840000 school children have been sent home under similar circumstances with all the sort of attendant care issues that come with that. it's all having a huge impact on the economy. stop shortage is business is struggling to stay open factories warning that they may have to close. and all the while there is the swirling concern among scientists building now advising the government. warning the government to change course 1200 scientists have given their support to a letter written to the lancet medical journal warning that the government strategy of allowing the virus to effectively run wild among the young and school children is quite dangerous and unethical. and could allow for the emergence of vaccine resistant variance. and as such, they say is a danger to the whole world. in developments elsewhere, the eiffel tower has reopened to visitors after the longest closure since world war 2, landmark has been shot since the start on the pandemic,
