10:22 pm
have closed. iran is the hardest hit country in the middle east on tuesday for more than 27000 new cases. and another $250.00 deaths, less than 2 percent of the population is fully vaccinated. while israel was the 1st country to fully vaccinated population and lift code 19 restrictions, but the delta variance has led to a new surgeon infections. now the country started giving a 3rd dose of the vaccine to high risk. patients are double hamid reports from tel aviv. it's the last section of the population to be vaccinated. 12 year old and teenagers, they are considered less at risk, but immunizing them has now become a priority. that socket of the vaccination because they absorb that as a virus. they don't show any symptoms, but somehow in fact that as the re, so they are the further israel managed to vaccinate its way out of depend demik
10:23 pm
with more than 80 percent of the population above the age of 40. having received their 2 doses for 3 consecutive weeks, they were no corona virus related death. israel was hailed as a success story, and the government lifted social distancing rules. no marks were required indoors, and international travel was allowed to game. but that was short lived. those returning to the country have brought with them the delta variant, and it's spreading at an alarming pace. accounting for around 90 percent of all new infections. the country is grappling with an increase in daily infections now at a 4 month high. so the government took do bold move of introducing a 3rd those vaccine a booster shot at the moment available only for specific cases. only patients with chronic diseases or an already compromised immunity system. i, legible for the 3rd jap. that raises the question of how effective is the pfizer
10:24 pm
vaccine, the only one available in israel, in the longer term health official say its effectiveness has gone down to about 64 percent when it comes to the delta variant. when you look on long term, and now we're looking on longer term, it was supposed to be reduce a little more chance of becoming infected, even if it was reduced from 90 to 60. as effect, this is the bcr positive test positive, but this is not being sick and i'm not really interest of reducing the people being positive on the p. c. r. i want to reduce hospitalization. i want to reduce mortality. still the government is worried. obligatory face mask indoors has been re introduce and there are new guaranteed
10:25 pm
rules for returning travelers. more restrictions could be imposed in the days to come. what happens next is a concern for everyone here in israel and for those around the world who are closely monitoring. however, fully immunized society faces new limitations of covert 19 on the meat edges, 0 israel in the u. s. current of ours cases, hospitalizations and death are on the rise, not driven by outbreaks in parts of the country with low vaccination rates. now the white house is confirmed a case of period 19 in an official who'd been fully vaccinated. that's going off to the white house correspondent, kimberly how kit and kevin to president biden. you people to go out and get their job. is this case in the white house, endangers, undermining this message? well, i was one of the questions that was asked at the white house briefing earlier, and the white house press secretary, jim saki denied the white house is concerned about this. what she said is that there's been no data to suggest that because somebody at the white house,
10:26 pm
or in fact any positive case in a previously vaccinated person would in any way discourage people from getting back that i haven't said that. certainly there are some people who are raising eyebrows and are a little bit concerned that it could have that impact given the fact that not only was there's a positive case with white house, but also on capitol hill in the speaker of the house that you close his office as well. a staff member there tested positive, but with respect to the white house case, the white house press secretary says that it is being monitor very carefully in terms of this breakout case. and she says there's no cause for alarm. take a listen. the way to the medical unit has conducted contact tracing interviews and determine no close contacts among white house principles or staff or the president . the individual has mild symptoms. we know that there will be breakthrough cases. but as it's instance chose cases in vaccine it,
10:27 pm
individuals are typically mild of the white house is prepared for break. for cases with regular testing is another reminder of the efficacy of the cove in 1900 vaccines against severe illness or hospitalizations. and of course we wish our colleague a speedy recovery but what isn't clear is whether or not the general public is quite so confident or prepared about the breakthrough aces. and as a result, there is some discussion about whether or not there need to be mandates put in place. in other words, once the vaccine gets something more than just the emergency authorization that has now and full food and drug administration approval, whether or not that is something that the white house and the broader members of congress should consider. and kimberly, in the meantime, it's exactly 6 months, isn't it? since fighting took office karone of ours till it was the biggest challenge. how's he seemed to be doing the president's getting great marks when it comes to the handling of the pandemic. in fact, 66 percent of americans say he's doing
10:28 pm
a great job, they feel reassured that things are on track. the problem for the president is when you ask how his handling of the economy is. that of course, is sort of the 2nd biggest challenge that the president had coming out of the pen demik. that's when the numbers start to waiver a little bit. there's still majority of americans, but it's just a slim majority. the think the president is doing well in that respect and the reason is a lot to do with the recovery and the trajectory is taking. there's inflation, food and price index shows that the percentage in terms of price is 5.4 percent. and that means that people are paying more for groceries, they're paying more for gasoline, and that is making a lot of lawmakers that even this white house rather nervous. now they are competent. they have said repeatedly, look at this is a temporary bob. but things are on track, but at the same time there is some concern that the programs the president is proposing or it's already put through in terms of that lifeline. giving people
10:29 pm
checks to help them get through a tough spot. whether or not those types of programs should continue, or if it's contributing to the spike in prices. so this is something to see, watch very carefully here at the white house. but add to that there is this concern that because of vaccine hesitancy, that the rise in cases of coven in the united states is also going to hurt that economic recovery. so it's a real challenge for the white house committee. how can thank you very much. i took your lympics opening ceremony just 3 days away. but how, thanks but a warning that the code isolation bubble, the olympic village has already been broken. 71 accredited people have now tested positive for current of iris. they include athletes thing in the village and others preparing across japan as well as team officials. i o. c members and volunteers the 2nd year in a row and the unlimited number of people have been allowed. it is wholly assigned to mecca to begin to mark the beginning of eda. latter, it's usually one of the world's largest religious gatherings. attracting over
10:30 pm
2000000 muslims. more of the world, but only 60000 vaccinated saudi residents have been committed to take part in the fuse hodge pilgrimage. because of the current of virus restriction, palestinian muslims gathered outside the alexa most can occupied east jerusalem. the 1st day of either harder, many were chanting in florida with other palestinians, and garza were also living under is ready occupation. ah, i'm under the top stories on how to 0. well, rich man has flown to space on a private rocket. jeff is also and his brother base a 10 minute journey along with wealth oldest and youngest face travelers. the 1st commercial flight, the talking blue origin, the space tourism company. this flight and the previous one. my virgin is richard branson has been criticized as joy rides for.
