11:05 am
$16000.00 cases were reported over 24 hours its biggest outbreak since the pan down began is being blamed on the delta variant. it was 1st identified in india and it's more contagious. tony chang now has more from bangkok we're getting record numbers every day. we pretty much seen them everyday for 2 weeks now . and the government despite clamping down with tighter and tighter restrictions doesn't seem able to stem the flow. certainly they are doing more tests now. but they are uncovering more clusters at the same time. we've seen the government come out the in fact, the prime minister himself in the last couple of days with a fairly fiery response, saying that the, the reason the infections are climbing so quickly is because people weren't following the directions properly. but we've also seen a lot of people who, who are going out in the daytime, which is still permitted under the current regulation. thing we have to go out for our business is we had to keep up as this is
11:06 am
a life. even if it means risking health and catching cove at 1900, if our businesses fail. so to we can of course, at the moment that said the cobra, 1900 response team is meeting today. it's probably going to introduce more strict measures at this stage. it's hard to know whether we're going to return to the very hard lockdown we are in at the start of the pandemic. but the government is running out of choices. health services, other on the real strain here, hospital bed to be running out. in the last couple of days, the government has asked the international airport to open up a new terminal in an emergency hospital and didn't even using a train carriages to treat a symptomatic cobit patients. so they really are looking hard for a solution. but at the moment until they can get the vaccination program fully functioning, it doesn't look like they'll get things under control of the white house is considering requiring employees of the federal government to show proof of the vaccination. otherwise,
11:07 am

11:08 am
a consequence of a cyber reach, of great consequence is increasing exponentially. the capabilities, holla, hackers are getting at a more sophisticated and brazen in may. so cold ransomware attack on a u. s. oil pipeline disrupted fuel supplies. the company paid millions to get it systems back. the march of that money was recovered. an attack on a u. s. technology company impacted business is worldwide including a swedish supermarket chain which had to close its stores. and earlier this year, hackers broke into the software company, solar winds comprised compromising u. s. government agencies. officials blamed russia. joining us from melbourne is mat warren, director of the r m i. t university center for cybersecurity research and innovation. good to have you with us. so does the fact that joe, joe biden is making this warning? does that in itself really reveal how reliant countries have become on this fiber
11:09 am
infrastructure? it really shows the escalation of cyber warfare, cyber wolf, as being part of what's called hydride. we'll say. so in terms of it's a connectivity, as well as 5 back to the pizza code, like to be an arch light disinformation. now we've seen the possible impact of the massive cyber attack on what is called critical infrastructure of the us and what the governance us government is saying is if these attacks occur, and the attribution can be linked to a nation state that they could be physical retribution for those attacks, while the military, like other industries have become more reliant as well on the cyber infrastructure . how will that also change the nature of warfare going forward,
11:10 am
which joe biden is warning about? well, it's got to change the profile because. busy in terms of critical infrastructure, it's quickly the structure for the entire population of the union with military. what we're now seeing is the mechanization of. busy cyber attacks focusing on particular parts of government. so down the road particular systems we've seen water supply systems attacked by hackers in florida. since you could have real consequences where the power and water are disrupted for a long period of time in major majors for the capitals, major centers of population. so we really are at a turning point the same time as the rise of crypto currencies, of
11:11 am
a linked to this rise in hacks. well, what we're saying is the voice of ransomware gangs and what they have after his payment to create so currency, so they can more easily hide those payments and transfer them because of the block chain aspects of it. the, the problem that you have is those that some way, gangs of based mainly in russia and they use in joker p to protect them because the russian government isn't take, it actually gets those ransom madison re, gangs, they are shutting down the appellation. so this is another major point to tension between the us and russia. who's behind the cyber tech side? are we talking about bounty seeking individuals? all state taxes, who actually are seeking more political leverage? well, there's actually a number of entities behind the attacks. there's water called state fed actors like
11:12 am
china, russia and north korea land, who undertake cyber attacks to stand information or check power. they stay in criminal gangs like we see in the bank somewhere, attacks to adjust attack in systems to try to get money out of that position. so government, and this is part of the issue is there's so many different groups behind these types of attacks, right? good to talk to. thanks mike warren. there also had the news already dealing with rising kevin 1900 cases down people in bangladesh having to deal with skyrocketing food prices. the afghan president outlines his vision for the country's future, mid continuing game by the tale. bon ah

11:16 am
bangkok and other regions. joe biden is warning significant cyber attacks could trigger a war. the us president made the remarks on speaking to intelligence personnel. cyber security has become a top priority for the 5 minute ministration after a series of high profile hacks. monsoon rains in bangladesh of triggered land slides and the world's largest refugee camp, killing at least 6 people, mostly children, could prolong camp and cox's bazaar is home. to more than a 1000000 rang refugees from neighboring the unmarked alex hale. bryan reports in the pouring rain. people come to see what happened or salvage what's left. the makeshift homes built from plastic sheets and bamboo pole had no chance when the muddy hillside collapsed into rachel rains. but one of you left and my sister went to the bathroom and after she returned the side of the hill came down. well,
11:17 am
i have one nice and 2 nephews and my sister. my brother in law, along with the other family members, managed to get out of the shelter, but the clothes came down on the floor and the entire shelter was damaged. 2 of them died and 2 others were injured like the powerful monsoon range caused a flood that reached roof height and some areas of the kuta column camp. more than 100 teams to see, to be washed away by the water. good of how long and bangladesh is the world's biggest refugee camp and the most densely populated. it's home to more than 1000000 wrangler who flayed a crick down by the military and neighboring miasma. it's overcrowded, basic, and prone to live live been flooding. somebody can have informed the people at least to more will be able to not comply with the request of the we will take alternate steps. not so much as we hope the population that we will be willing. the government says all the ra hanging will be received,
11:18 am
felt as soon as possible. and that measures are being taken to minimize casualties caused by the annual rains. but right group say it's not enough that the flood proved once more. how vulnerable the ringo refugees to the impact of climate change . many and now sheltering and mosques in school and facing the prospect of having lost their homes again. alex here brian al jazeera america's top diplomat has arrived in india, secretary of state anthony blanc and his that means his counterpart as well as the prime minister. talking points include the response to current of iris, regional security issues and climate change thinking has been due to fly on to kuwait. lisbeth from them joins us now from new delhi. so is this being seen as part of the effort to strengthen the alliance against china? very much as it is being seen as the latest attempt,
11:19 am
the ongoing attempts rather by the us administration to line off the allies in asia with china's growing influence in the region as the blanket, as the 3rd us official to visit and the other year after the us secretary of defense and also the u. s. climate on boy earlier in the us secretary of defense lloyd austin's in fact on a tour of asia right now, visiting cinnapool, philippines and vietnam too. but just as importantly, this visit as being seen by both countries as the us seeking to reassure india, a key partner in asia as they would draw the military out of, of gone, the sound of guns is set to top the agenda. in fact, for both countries, because india has very, very deep concerns about regional security with the u. s. and nation restore on the phone and u. s. government officials speaking to local media have said that india will be
11:20 am
seeking, will be asking us to maintain pressure on pockets. again, what india says, you know, as pockets on providing, not only funding, but also safe havens to groups as just holler, bond is gaining grounds and has gone to the phone with the u. s. withdrawal. so in issues like china and coven dominating talks will happen to other issues like minority, right, press freedoms, and so on. and they're going to be put in the back seat. now while us officials said ahead of me saying that anthony blanket would be raising issues of democracy and human vice. but what they said was that the 2 countries have more in common on those funds than they don't. and some people can actually began his visit to india by meeting representatives of civil society organizations. but then he also tweeted that you know, that the u. s. and india that they committed to democratic values. they share
11:21 am
democratic values. and that is part of the bedrock of the relationship that it's reflected in the as society. and so while us officials have said that things that u. s. government bodies themselves have criticize the indian government when it comes to democracy, human rights, minority rights from the public statements. we're here and from the us secretary of state. it doesn't seem like any criticism of the indian government that even if it is any criticism of the indian government, certainly will not be made public. thanks so much, elizabeth. per on an afghan president, i shall money as given a major policy speech in the countries future direction. but as the dress has been line on details about how the government plan, the counter territorial gains by the tommy bon gun, a broadly spoke about having full confidence in local forces as international troops continue to withdraw. our diplomatic editor james base has bought from
11:22 am
cobble it was a long speech and certainly he's praising the commitment of the afghan security forces in the ongoing fighting, saying that many retired officers joined up for the fight. but he also added that he felt there was no military solution to the situation in afghanistan. and i'm sure there was some observers watching that, wondering whether the taliban agreed with that assessment because it's all about all committed right now to the talks in doha bought, there is a question mark if they don't get what they want, are they going to give up on the talks and then start to try and take what they want militarily. clearly there's been no seas for the conflict continues at this stage. also worth noting, the president is long speech to this gathering of african leaders and the international community focus the lot on economics and development. and i can tell you the privately many senior guns ensued, including some in government of said that i should have gone. he said he's an
11:23 am
internet intellectually and academic used to work. the world bank is a guy before he came back to us. got a song out of the fall of the taliban in 2001, but they said they'd like to see i should have gone it acting more. as an inspirational leader, perhaps more of a bit of a general rather than the professor that i still see. ah, now us olympic gymnastics champion, simone biles, is withdrawn from a 2nd olympic competition in order to focus on her mental health. the 24 year old will now be assessed day by day to see if she can compete in next week's individual competitions. bowels has been looking to win gold medals in all 6 gymnastics finals to give her a total of 10, which would have made her the most accomplished female olympian in any sports. and
11:24 am
the riches enjoy us now from tokyo. so what more has come to life about simone? balls withdraw will think time and time again through her career, she shone her scale, her brilliance in her determination, we've seen another aspect of her courage over the last 24 hours speaking. so openly, the world's media about her desire to maintain her own mental health and didn't want to jeopardize the chances of a see might winning a gold medal also now pulling out. so that event on thursday. and i think the fact we've seen such a positive reaction from both her teammates, from the u. s. limbic committee from athletes all around the world does give some indication that attitudes towards mental health are changing. i mean, some of the pressures the athletes arrived here and so care with quite incredible, unprecedented social media scrutiny. and obviously the, the ongoing concern that a coven, 19 positive test could end your interest in these games at
11:25 am
a moment's notice. i was still waiting now to find out if files will compete. next week we'll get an official statement on bus in the coming days. and i'm the how much of a concern is pressure and mental health for other candidates? it's a growing issue and thing that's been talked about much more, not just to the lim, fixed, but in sports all around the world. understandably what happened to some i'm bios last night was mentioned at the daily international olympic committee, media briefing and asked folks a mock out and said that they're all psychologists attached to most of the olympic teams. now they're of psychologists employed by the i. c. inside the athletes that leads to assist, there's also a hotline in 70 different languages with an athlete just feels that they need to talk to somebody out of their immediate bubble and wants to do it in a confidential manner. no army or sacker, of course, is,

is the huge tennis superstar of the home country. she took a break from level tennis a couple of months ago saying she didn't want to press conferences anymore in order to protect her mental health. now she came back to these olympics, she got knocked sounds somewhat unexpectedly. what are the 1st question that she gets asked about her mental health and about how she's dealing with the pressure. so you can see just how difficult the situation is for athletes these days. but i think what we're seeing from, from bio and from our sac is that it is ok on a global stage to talk about us forcing highs, but also to talk openly about your mental lows as well. all right, thanks so much. and richardson data current, a virus cases in tokyo, has so as to another old time, high with almost another 3200 infections. in the past 24 hours, it will pile pressure on the government and the limpid organizers who pushed ahead with holding the gains during the pandemic. prime minister shaheed
