6:06 am
these are some of the worst floods ever seen in central china. and it's becoming a huge challenge for the authorities. adrian. yeah, indeed, the area that is affected by flooding lies in an area that is prone to this sort of thing. in fact, we know that in the last few years, the government spent something like $8000000000.00 on flood prevention measures. and katie, those measures have not worked on social media to day darren, there's a good deal of anger being expressed by people wondering why the weather forecast. who's got it so wrong? why was it they weren't able to predict this? once in a millennium event, we've seen plenty of pictures on stage media. on thursday morning, showing rescue was doing positive work, handing out water. food supplies, also firefighters bringing people to safety in an area that was once a road. now of course, as a, as a raging river, and really you get a sense of the traumatic running. so rubbing shoulders with the absurd and also
6:07 am
a picture of normality turned completely upside down. we've seen a lot of images also of weary and traumatized survivors still coming to terms with the scale of this deluge and the devastation it is left behind. it's worth pointing out. the ginger is also the center for the world's biggest i phone assembly plant. now a spokesman says that so far the flood is has no direct impact on their operations . but this city is a very, very important one. economically for china. yeah. and i joined the full constance, but yet more rain to come. things that like you then to get worse before they get better. that's absolutely right. as we speak, a typhoon is bearing down on the eastern coast of china and it's due to my land
6:08 am
full in the next couple of days. so yes, more heavy rain could be on the way, which means that's going to, i think, further hamper the rescue operation that has been taking place, the relief operation and also raise concerns about the dam levels. because john joe is a city that is ringed by times and the p l. a. the people's liberation army has deployed engineers who so far managed to stabilize the situation one of those times. but so far they been unable to do the same at some of the other dams, that circle, that city are meant to adrian brown, live person in hong kong. adrian, thank you. me not one day until a start of the summer. lympics in tokyo, an organizer say to more athletes that they limping, the village of tested positive for october 19. they are among 12 cases linked to
6:09 am
the games and out on thursday, bringing the total to $87.00. tokyo itself is saying it's highest number of cases in 6 months. the city remains under a state of emergency with competitors facing unprecedented restrictions on their movements. south korea has hit another dagger record for its number of new corona virus cases. more than 800100. the more contagious delta variant of the virus is fueling. the surge, the latest numbers include 270 sailors who have flown home from an anti piracy navy . destroyer of the coast of africa authorities and now considering expanding restrictions in the capital soul and its neighboring region, the rob mcbride joins us live now from so rob, so this is south korea's highest ever daily increase in cases the authorities clearly struggling to get this under control that's right, i mean when they set forth waves started to take a hold here they were lot of predictions that we would be seeing something like 2000 new cases per day before it was brought under control. so we are very quickly
6:10 am
reaching that figure. now, as you mentioned that some 270 of these cases, our crew members from this ill fated war ship of the east coast of africa was on anti piracy patrol. when it was completely overtaken by an outbreak on board the ship, the entire crew has been flown back here to south korea and out of a crew of 301270 of now tested positive. that's a staggering 90 percent of the crew. it continues to be a big issue here. they have launched an inquiry, questions being asked about why the crew had not been vaccinated. why there weren't enough testing kits on board the ship. but even if you take that number out, this is still a very high figure. we've been seeing well over a 1000 new cases per day for some 2 weeks now. and we are already get the maximum social distancing restrictions here in the capital area of sol metropolitan area
6:11 am
and also across on the east coast. but there are concerns that we get more into the holiday season. and the government is really going to have to look at extending restrictions to the highest level in other parts of the south korea and whether in some parts that will even be enough. and they may have to take even more drastic action. yeah, robin, despite the rise in cases the south korea hasn't seen a significant increase in the hospitalizations and deaths. so is the vaccine role of having an impact here? that is, one of the more encouraging aspects is the fact that compared to previous waves, we are not seeing the same number of hospitalizations and deaths. and that is in part because there are more hospital resources, more coded of 19 beds for patients. but also, as the vaccinations have been rolled out, some of the more vulnerable groups such as nursing homes or the elderly, they are among the people who have been vaccinated. some 3032 percent now of the
6:12 am
population have had at least one job. but that has draw attention to the 2 thirds of people who are not vaccinated. a lot of this 4th wave is being attributed to younger people in south korea. and the younger generation going out, socializing, taking trips around south korea. and that has been quite a bit of pushback from those people saying, with some justification, don't blame us vaccinate us. why are we still waiting for our vaccines? and again, it has re ignited this ongoing debate here about the relatively slow rollout to the vaccination. the campaign that after even after all of these months, the total number of people who have been completely vaccinated still stands at a relatively low 30 percent. all right, a rob mcbride lie for stay from the south korean capital. so rob, thank you. well, time personal break here and i'll just hear when we come back. cuba is reporting an average of 6000 corona virus cases. a day will get an update on the situation there

6:14 am
a temperature story now with what's going on across north america, a bit cool toward s f with a high of 18 degrees. and there is some of that rain there for georgia pushing into the carolinas. central america looks like this or heavy spouts. of what weather will be found to work coast rico right through to panama. otherwise, for the caribbean, just the risk of a pop up thunderstorm that includes point to canada on thursday, off to south america, we've got a tropical rains falling where they should and we're going to get a cool surge of they are pushed into santiago. so if i show you the 3 day forecast, we go from while above average on thursday to below average on saturday with just the high of 13. with this stuff, mum, flying the flag for her nation. we have been putting been playing crickets on what the country must my dream,
