12:30 am
over 900 deaths, there were too many grieving families and not enough workers to help bury the dead . some communities are now relying on volunteers. you just give them one that we don't receive any payment. we do our job from the heart. he cleans the bodies and also drives coffins to the symmetry must be the number of this is so high here. so this is what we can do to help the families. they work from morning to night. every day they see more families in anguish. seeing the conditions of these families, i feel in my heart and need to help them. i think about them even after i get home . ah, this is just one of many coven, 19 burial sites in indonesia, at all hours, hearses and ambulances. keep up with more bodies to be buried
12:31 am
away, sick people, more people are dying alone in their home and most never had the chance to be treated in hospital as the death toll rise of covert 900 burial size. overwhelmed and grave digging have to work well into the night to keep up with demand. indonesia covered 19 fatality rate is the highest in se asia. but experts warn the government's data doesn't reveal the extent of the crisis. we pray take that the real number of those who died from coffee 9 teens should be treat to far as time higher than the officials. number each day, indonesia cases and deaths rise to record levels and more families come here to more those they've lost jessica washington out to 0, chicago. it's been more than 18 months since the corona virus emerged in china's
12:32 am
war hand, forcing the city into what seemed at the time and unimaginable locked down. since then, several vaccines have been produced, tested and rolled out on a mass scale production shortages, distribution inequality, and a new variance are threatening the freight, fragile progress made against the virus. more than 4000000 people have now been killed by colbert 19. but the w. h. o says that up to 3 times more people have died directly or indirectly. as a result of the plan that make than official figures suggest more than $100.00. 19000000 cases have been recorded with several countries currently hitting record highs, including indonesia, thailand and vietnam. and cooper that's across the continent of africa jumped more than 40 percent last week alone. 12.9 percent of the world has now been fully vaccinated, but that rate drops significantly in poor countries. only around one percent of
12:33 am
africans have actually been vaccinated. so the pen that make is far from over, which is why the u. k. government is facing intense scrutiny over its plans to reopen the economy and remove all corona virus restrictions on monday. it's being called freedom day when people will no longer be required to wear face masks in public, or to maintain social distancing. but the u. k. has one of the highest rates of daily infections in the world. and on sunday, registered at 48000 new corona, virus infections for more on this verola just the christmas that joins us live now from cambridge in the u. k. so thank you so much for joining us here on al jazeera, obviously, there's a lot of confusion around the world, and i have to say in the u. k as well, about this and new direction, the government is going in looking at the number of infections. what do you make of the decision to have freedom day on monday tomorrow?
12:34 am
well 1st of all, yes, we are looking at roughly $50000.00 cases per day that we know about. and that's important because of course, remember that about 50 percent of the cases of chrome bars have no or few symptoms . and so people often don't know they've got the virus. so we can probably double that. we're probably looking at $100000.00 cases per day at the moment, which does seem stupendously high. but if you take that number and ask when we had our last outbreak, the big wave in january, which was caused by the circle, kent or alpha variance. what will we seeing in terms of cases in hospital and what are we seeing in terms of those cases in hospital translating into mortality, some crone of ours. and it's like night and day. it couldn't be more different because now what we're saying is very high levels, $50000.00 cases that we know about per day. but what we're not seeing of those cases translating into people in hospital or thank goodness people who are passing
12:35 am
away. there's a very, very significant difference between when we had previous outbreaks and now, and this is being attributed to the impact of the vaccine with 90 percent of u. k. adults having had at least one dose, the vaccine and close to 70 percent. having had 2 doses of the vaccine, which is the crucial number that we think we need to combat the delta of air in which is accounting for the vast majority of cases here. now. so it's that difference which is giving the government the confidence to say, well, despite these cases will nevertheless now open things up. and we will actually allow people to go about their business. but they're not saying don't do these things. don't use public health measures don't use face covering while they are saying is it will no longer be a legal requirement to do a lot of these things. and that sort of pushing the bug onto other individuals such as transports chief, such as businesses, pub, restaurant clubs and saying, you make a policy which people have to follow when they're in your jurisdiction. i mean,
12:36 am
i suppose the science and the politics have always had to go hand in hand than many of the decisions taken in tackling the pandemic everywhere. have often had to be political decision. lock down is a political decision, but we are still seeing increases in cases as you've said, basically the link between cases and that has been weekend to know quite broken, but certainly weekend. but isn't it also the case that the more cases you have, the more you increase the chance of developing a new variant, which no one knows but could be resistant the vaccines. absolutely. and the way in which these viruses work, just like, oh, of ours is in fact, just like a life on earth. when genetic material gets copied and viruses are nothing more than an infectious bag of genes and genetic material. there is a small chance in some cases, a big chance in other cases that genetic spelling errors will creep in. that's a mutation. this is how viruses evolve and change, and this is where the variance come from. so anyway, when as a very high level of circulation of a virus,
12:37 am
you will increase the likelihood of getting variance. but the thing to consider is, as you've already been broadcasting earlier in this report, there are other places on earth that have very, very high levels of ours turnover as well. and so when you take into account the fact this probably 7000000000 people who haven't had corona vars yet, or haven't actually been vaccinated yet, and that's a big headache in its own right. that's plenty of other cases to be getting on with, which means is plenty more opportunities for veterans to emerge in that vast excess of cases which is coming compared to the few 1000000 cases that are happening in the u. k. so yes, it's a risk factor in terms of disclosing baron's home, but they are all polenta of opportunities for the same sort of variance to emerge internationally in other countries with big numbers of cases. so it's on that basis that the government has confidence saying, well, we're not taking a risk, but any bigger than any other country in the world that has a high virus turnover at the moment. i mean,
12:38 am
obviously the pressure is always to try to get back to some kind of normality. but then again, in the u. k. schools did reopen in march. most shops opened in april little by little. we were in a situation where you could really call it a lock down something you think that may be just to play it safe, especially because as you say, variance could emerge from any country at any time and arrive here in the u. k, which, you know, a lot of people travel through in one way or another. but you think, especially because of that, maintaining the necessity to where me ask for the obligation to we're face masks, for example, inside would have been worth the risk. i mean, why do you think that the government and i mean, do you think the government is right to take the decision that it's taking tomorrow? what the government have done isn't to say, don't wear faith coverings. what the governments have done is to say it is not a legal requirement to do this. and there she quite different things they have asked and invited various entities that operate then use that the public will be using or gathering in to make their own policies. and really it will be up to the
12:39 am
public to also exercise some degree of personal for me for interrupting you. but it was up to the public back in march 2020. when we were already seeing what was happening in china part of the parts of asia and initially especially boys, johnson, even at that time, left it to the public's common sense, i think was the phrase he used. and in the end it didn't really work very well. in lockdown had to be imposed. do you think the public is different now a year and a half into the pandemic? well i and people have complied for a really long time, really very well. but i think also people see that they need to get back to normal because if, if you continue to kick the can down the road in this way, there's no end in sight. and i think the prominence to put it quite well when he use the phrase, if not now, when, because the problem is that if we don't do this now, then there will always be the opportunity to make all of the same arguments for not doing this at any point in the future, i'm right now. we really are in
12:40 am
a propitious situation with the arrival of summer because in summertime bars to spread less well, most of the many of the anyway, we've also got schools on holiday. we've got people who are workers on holiday, and that means less pressure on public transport. it means less role for schools in spreading infection and less overall disruption. and therefore, we have a number of factors that make it more advantageous to try to do this. now compare, but if we were to wait and realistically if we were to wait, we will be waiting a much longer time, i guess will be interesting to see how things develop over the next few weeks. and we'll moment have her ologist christmas. joining us now from cambridge, sir, thank you so much for sharing your views and exposure with us. now for many decades, native american children in the united states were sent to w. run boarding schools in an effort to assimilate them into the broader european base society that had taken their lands somehow. call it a deliberate effort, a cultural genocide in south dakota. one indigenous community has reclaimed the
12:41 am
remains of the children who died in the schools. reynolds reports, oh, with the sound of drums and prayer songs the remains of 90 congo or yacht, a laquata children returned home to their native land. the. their story is a long and painful one, stretching back over 140 years. be a lot of sadness here today. beginning in a 79 native children from the la cota and other tribes were sent to government run boarding schools. the 1st group embarked on steamships from this point on the missouri river headed for a government school in far away carlisle, pennsylvania law. the kids with this last placed his parents here and both tens of thousands of native children entered boarding schools. the project was meant to assimilate to destroy native language, culture and religion,
12:42 am
and to turn the young people into model christian americans. but many did not survive the schools harsh regime of maltreatment, neglect, and disease. for decades, the cota children lay buried in carlisle cemetery but they were never forgotten. after years of effort to properly identify the remains and then carefully examine them, children including little hawk hollow, horn bare strikes, 1st swift bare and others who left so long ago or surrounded by their people. once more. that's who to come home. does it make you feel emotional? going to her home. really happy, young luck. oh, to reflect on the hardships their relatives endured. i would have been full of care . i would have been full of i would expect nothing but death. to be honest,
12:43 am
it's almost a nauseating feeling to, to realize what these kids been through. the children's remains replaced on the ground inside, especially constructed t p. they're surrounded by relatives and religious leaders. they were welcomed home in a private prayer ceremony. later the entire community gathered as the remains were laid out, wrapped in buffalo hides and surrounded by sacred sage people prayed long into the night. the homecoming is an event of enormous emotional and spiritual importance to his people says organizer russell eagle bear. there's a re awakening. of our people, and that's an important, you know, we need to, we can be living in grief all the time. and on the following day, the children were laid to rest in the local cemetery home at last, in the land where they belong. robert old al jazeera mission, south dakota,

apache tele honda is the executive producer of the newscast, the indian country today. she also attended a boarding school for native americans. she explains why the us government decided talk knowledge the historic tragedy. well, in canada, the government formerly apologized to the 1st nations people, they're not, government has never done that. so that's $11.00 step as far as payment. i don't think that that will ever happen. but, you know, we have treaties with the us government and those treaties have never been fulfill . and so allocations are funding for health care, i think is really important. and then education and housing. so one thing the pandemic has really shown is that because of those, the lack of funding that the government has promised we have really harsh situations on reservations now. so, you know, it's going to take some time, but i think that this is, it's all like this. everything is coming together with the outcome of the pan genic
12:45 am
under seeing how these graves have been found in canada. and then looking at the u . s. boarding schools again phoenix indian school which i attended was open for 909 years. there is no known marked graveyard there. you know, we know hundreds of kids died at that school. what happened to their bodies? and we have there's a really good exhibit at the heard museum here in phoenix, arizona. and the exhibit is on lines for people can go online and watch it and see that jeremy, the have letters. they're written by school administrators to pair and seen your child guide, and we buried them in a nice christian ceremony. and i just wanted to let you know that, but there was no effort to send the child home. and in those early days it was because the costs are so expensive and they didn't hold value for native lives and didn't see it necessary to return the remains to the family. so where are these kids burying?
