2:05 am
the people of chinese and countries, particularly in the gulf that this was not a qu? i think the best step to actually to read to what you, what you've done. because according to going to the fusion, i think he has the only version. he's understanding that she can discharge the government. he can do sort of the parliament, the best thing they can do right now to undo what he's done before. and i'm sure i'm not sure he has the character to do that because he's a clear, he's stubborn. he is not all been, are you to on your the out of the but he's got parties the invited all civil society organization for the police that he has such an attitude against the police stations as a rob and this is the same attitude for popular leaders we have seen in your body and he says during administration, i think this is
2:06 am
a dangerous more i should hearing lies and understand that this is being a part of the democratic process. you have to actually go in a situation, a new hoster, accept other players, be part of the mall. the president is an independent artist and he's not affiliated to any political party. but as laura barton mom was saying in her report, just a moment to go under the the, the rule if you like, of the government predominantly made up but enough to party which carried a significant role in the government. trinity's economy essentially has been stuttering to a standstill and the whole roll out of the vaccine pandemic. and sorry, the facts vaccination is during the cold time damage had been something of a disaster. there are allegations of corruption was really anything else that the president could have done. was it not in some ways, right? to actually draw a line under it and say right enough is enough. we have to start again. but the
2:07 am
better the manager may call it better than make is this is not on only have been in egypt and having an all countries around the world. even there are more war situation in india or in, in united states. and other countries. very spawns not actually to crush the democratic situations. the democracy sometimes has no answer to everything but the democratic process it can allow for also you sion, to be bart and to be discussed and debated within. now what, what, what he had done actually he added politically, i'm going to do here in a crisis, to the economy and to the health problem in tunisia. and this is why now the 20 gender, instead of focusing on how to deal with the vaccine, the lack of vaccine ation, and that of hospitalisation. now they have to deal with their political unconstitutional issue. now look, it's decided to close down the government for 2 days. and care of yours from
2:08 am
6 b m, until 7, a. m. for almost someone that's actually was to the situation rather than help the venetian people. we always say democracy has no and it does not have the whole answers, but at least abroad can help. for the people to find the best answer and the best answer to the interests of the people. but on the other, we appreciate your being and i'll just say to thank you very much indeed for your time. so thank you. me us president joe biden says he's considering requiring all federal workers to get vaccinated against corona virus. cases in the us continue to climb, largely driven by the more contagious delta variant. and today, tuesday, the centers for disease control and prevention,
2:09 am
vast as mask policy. it's now recommending a fully vaccinated people where mosques indoors in parts of the country with high transmission rates. i've got a consideration right now, but if you're not actually, you're not nearly as smart as i thought. i knew we have the vaccinate more more, we learn more, we are as fires in the variation more we have to be more concerned. and in only one thing we know for sure, if those other 100000000 people got vaccinated, we've been a very different and let's go out to my canada, who's in washington dc for us. mike, if this does get rolled out, we're talking about 5 thousands and thousands of federal employees and one would imagine statistically alone,
2:10 am
there are going to be those who don't want to get vaccinated and how likely is it? we're going to see some sort of pushback against this well, that's very likely. and we are talking about hundreds of thousands of people, the federal government, for example, employees, ton for 1000000 people full time. if you add to the number of contractors that that rises to some 10000000. so this will impact on a lot of people. now they have been some states that have already introduced a vaccine mandate. new york, for example, new york city, as well as california, has now introduced a vaccine mandate. now in both of those areas, the mandate is there, but at the same time, there will be no action taken against workers who refused to have the vaccination, but it will be made difficult for them, given that they will then have to agree to very regular testing. they would also have to wear a mosque whenever they were indoors and in contact with the public. now,
2:11 am
the indications and media his reporting that president biden will be announcing the plan later in the week, spokesman for his office is reported as saying that the mandate will be much along the lines that we've seen in new york city and in california. that there will be a mandate, but at the same time, people will not be fired. however, there will be extra measures that the unvaccinated will have to follow in order to remain in their work. so this would be a massive step and they will certainly be pushed back, particularly from a republicans who would see this as what they would describe as federal overreach. and just as we were mentioning, this is coming at the same time as the centers for disease control and prevention. the cdc is reversing its decision about mosque wearing. just talk us through, fought this is what they've been saying about that. well, this has been expected. the director of the cdc held
2:12 am
a telephone briefing in the course of the day, and she said that we would have to look at the infection rates in particular areas . any area in which there is an increasing infection rate. the mosque mandate indoors must be returned. so this will be done on a region by region basis in dc where i am at the moment, the infection rate has increased full times in the month of july. and now the district leaders are looking at this, looking at the cdc recommendations. and within the next few hours, we expecting some kind of announcement in d. c. this will be a procedure happening throughout the united states following the cdc recommendations. but this is a turn around by the c d. c. it was back in may when they ruled that vaccinated people need not wear a mos indoors. this is not being reversed in areas with, i say, with high vaccination rates, which would be determined in each region in terms of the amount of infections they
2:13 am
have just at very quickly as well as the director of the cdc repeating that point, that there is a direct correlation between the lack of vaccination and the increase in the cobit infection rate. those states in which they are less vaccinations, the rate of infection is higher. so clearly a co co relation between the 2. and i'm at that to that at present. less than half of the people in the united states vaccinated, so they are well over 100000000 people who are still not vaccinated for whatever reason. my kind of life is in washington dc. mike, thanks a lot. well, tight organizations discussing global demands for a vaccine. payton to waiver at a meeting in geneva, the u. s. south africa and india light calls for the suspension of intellectual property rights on several jobs. they say it would allow local production of vaccines and end dependent more quickly. but it's opposed by some wealthy nation,
2:14 am
including the u. k. and the european union on a house in london. he says there's unlikely to be treat agreement and vaccine waivers. among w t o members, i think it will meet a divided audience in the world trade organization among its membership is the general council meets over the next 2 days. they're going to address it. they're going to look at it, we're going to hear from them either today or tomorrow. is it likely to be endorsed overall by consensus? this is a consensus body after all. probably not at this meeting. i think those are the signs. anyway. there's a lot of opposition. the u. k. germany on the part of the e. u is opposed as well as other rich countries. japan, australia, norway, switzerland. these are countries that believe that if you simply do away with intellectual property rights, you set a very poor precedent in terms of future investment, risk research innovation by these big pharmaceutical companies. they'd rather see a system of licensing rights handed out to developing countries. technology
2:15 am
transfers so that you can manufacture those vaccines on the ground that you don't do away with the all important profit principle. so without consensus, there's unlikely to be agreement. it may be pushed down the road to another meeting in october to too late, of course, say activists, and campaigners who will and many more people will die in the meantime. infection rates are rising fast across the developing world. and as they do so, to will rise the risk of the emergence of yet more dangerous variance, undermining further the world's ability to escape this pandemic. still, i don't all do 0. the indifference shown to my colleagues is disgrace, emotional testimony from us police officers who would attract during the january 6th capital riots. we find out what they want congress to do the ivory coast president talestine without his predecessor long. but for the 1st time since the
2:16 am
wild re pushed the country into a civil war 10 years ago, the is the time the year when you get thunderstorms in the desert, south west. if you look at the big circulation, they tend to move up then and the going across the great lake. so the big circulation round, the us, this is the result of those stores in the full corner states. these for here, it happens every year. if you're lucky and you tend to get flooding as a result, but it's probably welcome rain, rain elsewhere rather limited to spring slowly as the southern states into florida . that is a mass here in a cross into the midwest. eventually the rest of the great lakes. you saw a direction of that cloud with these is also above the smoke from the fires in british columbia in oregon, california. now, hopefully some of the storms will tend to damp them down,
2:17 am
but quite often it's just drive under storms and they tend to set them off with the lightning is the picture on thursday. the big storm to down through chicago and to the east venture into pennsylvania. they're not that big to be off and it's dried this sir, the caribbean, the gulf of mexico. it's good scattering, seasonal showers. but there is also seasonal heavy rain. it's died down a bit in costa rica and panama rather more obvious. i think you'll find in guatemala. well knicker argue or hung judas. but for mexico must try picture. unless you're on the pacific coast. ah, the wizard bang. energy and change to every part of our universe. or small to continue the change all around the shape by
