in london to activate the tackling the root causes of youth violence. many young people that perpetuate and violence, again of the young people themselves have also been victim multiple times. my generation can try me design and shape this generation change on al jazeera. ah, me a resurgence in infections in the us. anger of the handling of the coven, 19 crisis into new vaccine shore. do some africa, a new growth of ours wave grips the world. the panoramic also raises questions of the tokyo lympics. japan registers a 6 month high in infections the day before the opening ceremony. ah, the other can vanelle, this is eleanor the law from doha. also coming up 1000 struggle and central china
2:01 am
to cope with the aftermath of the worst flooding and decades. i'll have an on the ground report last fall elliptical where plans to build a gleaming, 60000 feet or football stadium or among several reasons why the city has now lost is coveted unesco. well, heritage status in a new grown of ours wave has gripped the world with many regions reporting a rise in infections. this is mostly being attributes to the highly contagious delta variant, which was 1st identified in india. in the us, the average number of daily new infections has nearly tripled in the span of 2 weeks. crucially, nearly all corona virus, patients and hospital r unvaccinated. japan's capital tokyo reported a 6 month high in cases on the eve of the games opening ceremony. almost 2000
2:02 am
positive tests were recorded. the highest figures in mid january and in parts of africa, vaccine supply shortages, a holding back rollouts and african union invoice calling on pharmaceutical firms to license local production to increase supply. i'll have more in the outbreak in africa and just a moment, but 1st has a white house correspondent. kimberly how good. the situation in the u. s. renewed warnings from the white house urging all americans to get vaccinated. as cases of coven continued to spike up 35 percent from last week, and death up 26 percent. the delta barrier is more aggressive and much more transmissible than previously circulating strain. it is one of the most infectious respiratory viruses mellow. and i have seen in my 20 year career, the us centers for disease control says 83 percent of all new u. s. cobit cases are linked to the highly transmissible delta variant. for now,
2:03 am
the white house mass policy has not changed. currently only unvaccinated people need to wear a mask, but officials are discussing whether to change that. so if you're an area that has a high rate and low rate, the vaccination where delta cases are rising, you should certainly be wearing a mask if you are on vaccinated. the white house is also continuing to work with social media companies to tamp down and what it calls. vaccine misinformation there remains skepticism in the us, particularly among conservatives, about mask effectiveness, and whether coven vaccines or even safe. if people have questions about it. let's answer the questions, let's not say, oh, you can't put any information out. i think what would really have people have greater trust provide all the science provide all the information with 97 percent
2:04 am
of all cobra deaths in the u. s. among the unvaccinated, the biden administration is boosting investments in cobra testing in areas where vaccination rates remain low. 1.6000000000 has been allocated for testing in high risk settings like prisons and homeless shelters. 398000000 has also been added to help small rural hospitals reduce infection. but already the spike uncovered cases is being felt economically. the number of americans falling jobless claims hit a 2 month high last week. 419000 americans filing for benefits as the delta various threatens president biden's promise of a swift economic recovery. kimberly help hit al jazeera, the white house, and in germany council, anglo merkel says, infections arriving there at a worrying speed. she's calling on people to get vaccinated. the victim saw that
2:05 am
the number of infections has been rising again for a few days. now with a clear and in my opinion, worrying momentum. the whole thing is driven by the delta very into the corona virus. the off site to is consistently above one. so that means we have exponential grace by p when i don't normally take a look, we'll want no manager back, but we don't get that normality alone. we only get it back as a community. and for this, we need significantly more vaccine protection topics. j. our term is co director of the center for vaccine development at texas childrens hospital between us on scott from houston. thanks so much for your time. so as we've been hearing, we're seeing new waves of the virus around the world. how big an issue is vaccine hesitancy, or skepticism and getting out of the pandemic? well, certainly in places where there's adequate amount of vaccine, what we're seeing is still a large regions of the united states, not even pockets,
2:06 am
large regions where people are not vaccinated. for instance, in the southern united states and louisiana, mississippi parts of texas. what we're seeing is fewer than 15 percent or 20 percent of adolescence vaccinated in only 3040 percent of young adults vaccinated. and, and it very much goes along a partisan divide, a blue stay red, stay democrat, republican, divide because of anti vaccine aggression coming from the political right. this has been building since 2015 and a really accelerated last year. so you've got now member elected members of the united states congress, openly espousing anti vaccine views. you have the far right, conservative cable news networks going on the anti vaccine rants on a, on a regular basis. and it's not reflected demographically in the united states, very much among republicans, especially younger republicans. and that's why you see now the steep acceleration
2:07 am
from the delta varian in these low vaccination areas, wherever you have the 12 punch, high delta low vaccination rates. this is where it's accelerating, and at least in the united states, you raise any really interesting point, i mean, is combating and t vexes vaccine skeptics i actually don't even off combating is the right word is quite aggressive, but it is meeting them or changing minds is going at them with facts the way to do it because some of the later social science research looking at common psychological traits of people who are skeptical of vaccines suggested it's actually more about feelings and attitudes. so how do you change mines? well, remember, the anti vaccine movement leasing us has evolved or devolved. it started in the early 2, thousands with fake assertions that vaccines cause autism. and that's how i got involved and became a target because i had written a book,
2:08 am
a few years back called vaccines, did not cause rachel's autism about my daughter. i might with autism and intellectual disability. i'm a vaccine scientist and pediatrician also parent and but then and they started to lose steam because of that. i think we made some inroads in debunking their claims, but to re energize what they did in 2015 was they globbed down to the republican tea party in the united states under this kind of phony banner of health freedom medical freedom. and that's or dealing with today and, and so you're right, i think what's happened, at least in the us is people are actually tying their political allegiance by not vaccinating as so obviously self defeating is that sounds that is the reality. so there's this tribal nature to not getting vaccinated, and this is what we're up against are right now. and, and what's happened is the anti vaccine movement in the us is kind of become what i
2:09 am
call a triple headed monster of 3 components. the major one being this far right ring extremism which not even far right anymore, it's becoming increasingly common across the republican party. that's one. the 2nd one is we have an organization in the, in the us called the center for countering digital hate. amazing. we have to have an organization like that that's identified about a dozen non governmental organizations that help fuel the misinformation content of the messages. and they've been labeled the disinformation doesn't. and the 3rd one which are as a surprise to many people, but it's really become very important. the last couple of years is the russian government under pollutant which is now using anti vac genie anti science messages to destabilize the united states. so it's actually using anti science aggression as a form of a, as a wedge issue to exacerbate that republican democrat blue, red divide. alright, hi, thank you very much. your time dr. pe to j,
2:10 am
who has their co director of the center for vaccine development. thank you. and about 12 hours all eyes will be on the tokyo olympics when the opening ceremony gets on the way. questions being raised. if the games can carry on smoothly. tokyo hit a 6 month high and new cases on thursday. almost 2000 and positive tests were recorded . that's the highest figures since mid january. this, despite tokyo being under a state of emergency for the past 11 days. and the games have already been delayed by a year handy. richardson is in tokyo, who has been taking a look at why organizes have been so determined to push ahead with the event. athletes will have to get used to the sound of their own efforts in tokyo. these olympic have already cost the host nation, at least $15000000000.00. much of the money spent on venue that fans and now banned from attending you to rise in cases of cobit $19.00. the cost, you know,
2:11 am
being shouldered for the great part by the people and not really by the government . and so people are really getting sick and tired of having to make so much 5. so you really do have, you know, very well divided and maybe i honestly, you know, united in opposition against the olympics. this is about as close to the sporting action as tokyo residents will get in a city where cove at 19 infection levels hitting heights. not seen since january, then animal united, comalla. here it is. i don't know what to say, considering how much the virus is fraud. athletes have been training so hard for this. i would feel sorry for them if it doesn't happen. not as well. i wouldn't who wanted to take the risk of watching it in the stadium, but it's enough for me to see the games on tv. well, last ticket revenue is sent to cost. the hosts, hundreds of millions of dollars a made for tv events does make financial sense for the international olympic committee. the i see makes approximately 75 percent of its income from selling
2:12 am
broadcast rights to the games and around full $1000000000.00 could have been lost if the olympics had been cancelled and the legal, small print will tell you, it was always the i o. c. you have the final say as to whether or not these olympics went ahead, organizes will be hoping the public mood shifts in their favor. once the games are up and running, we'll have like a very, a negative agenda across like different media outlets before the games. and the sooner the games are going to have like a fair me like the mind of everyone like congress tends to be like more positive and focus more on the stories that are taking place within stages. voices in support of the games can be found with the host. now banking on sporting dramas, rather than medical. rubbing the headlines in the days ahead and the richardson al jazeera tokyo elsewhere south africa is also struggling with the search infections
2:13 am
. but the vaccination drive there is making progress. reco, 250000 people, got the job and just one day earlier in the week. but only around 7 percent of the population has received at least one dose. south africa is the worst hit country on the african continent, and health experts, a warning of a potential rise in cases after protests last week. for media miller has more from johannesburg. well, the south african government had to hope to vaccinate about 300000. and they've almost reached a target by almost 250000 in the last 24 hours. and that is a record for south africa, especially given they've been concerning the last week. and so, given the disruptions here around some of the riots that we experienced in the provinces of consumer natal and how, paying in that vaccination centers were the work, they was suspended at least for a few days. and all the government says everything is back to normal. also what
2:14 am
seems to be driving this particular record is that vaccinations have now opened up to people 35 years and older and it seems based on the trends we're seeing that the younger the individual is the keynote they are to get vaccinated. we did see some reluctance from people over 60 years old, so the government is really pushing for the registration of people over the age of 35. and while it did have a process in place that people would have to make appointments, they receive a text message to confirm that appointment the now accepting walking and ultimately the ministry of health saying it's all about getting people vaccinated as quickly as possible. the numbers continue to be of concern. it has though dropped, of the $27.00. sorry. of the people who are testing 27 percent of them seem to be infected by coven 19. but there seems to be some relief in terms of the 3rd wave that's being experienced in south africa. currently. still ahead on al jazeera show, a force by india is pharmacist, anger grove,
2:15 am
of changes to agriculture. the billing is making quick trips to spaces, drilling. people won't wife, but the us congress took up a less exciting but more pressing issue based junk. ah, ah hello, nice to see you. you know, toronto has recorded registered some of the worst air quality in the world. as we see that smoke from wildfires drift in, we've got to have 24 degrees for you on friday, but i want to take you to where i think we'll see the heaviest pulses of rain. and so for that we go to the u. s. gulf states in particular looking like mississippi rate through to georgia, down into florida, where we'll see some of those bursts of rain and there is the potential here to see some flash flooding. so we gotta be on the lookout for that. next up,
2:16 am
we're going to central america and our buckets of rain where we expect to see some of that is as we head toward krista rica into panama. otherwise, across the caribbean, look at this. we just got the risk of some pop up showers and thunderstorms, part of spain, 31 degrees for you with just some showers in the forecast toward the top end of south america. rain is falling where it should as we head toward the south east of columbia, pushing into venezuela and its steady stream of what weather for the pacific coast of ecuador. check out the temperature in santiago, 1900 degrees. but your temperature is going to fall in the days to come and that's because we've got that cool air from patagonia starting to search further toward the north point to rain as a high of 6 degrees for you on friday. that sure weather update. the weather bag, energy and changes to every part of our universe more
