6:38 pm
there been more than 2000 new cases per day and there is a pose of worry for the government, even though the number of people who are seriously remained quite low. now days really have been saying for quite a while now that they had noticed that the effectiveness of the pfizer by and take the vaccine, which is the only one that has been ruled out in this country has gone down to about 64 percent. when it came to the delta various, even though they kept and always insisting that the number of seriously ill patients is still quite low. but on the right now, they had already started that 3rd vaccine about 2 weeks ago. but that was specifically for patients with a compromised immune system, patients with a chronic disease. now what has happened today is that both the president and the
6:39 pm
prime minister, and actually even opposition leader, former prime minister benjamin they had, were filmed, taking this 3rd vaccine, nastily bended, the prime minister, telling people, tell your grandparents to go and take that 3rd vaccine. but they are only available, but people above the age of 60, who had received their 2nd vaccine at least 5 months ago. and until a report by the us centers for disease control and prevention says the delta variant is as contagious is chicken pox. a copy of the document obtained by u. s. media out that shows the variance is more transmissible than the viruses that cause the bola, the common cold, the seasonal flu, and smallpox analysis also indicates people infected with the delta variant carry large amounts of it in their nose and throat. regardless of the vaccination stages . the very it is now
6:40 pm
a primary concern for many countries around the world has come all santa maria with a look at the data. the more infectious delta variant, the highly contagious delta of air. and you keep hearing it all the time, but we want to have a look at how we can visualize that and even compare it to other variance. got a great website here, cool covariance dot org, which does just that tracks all the variance. and there are a lot that we are focusing on the main for they are the top of the hand side alpha, beta, gamma and delta. what i'm going to do is run you through them. we just compare them starting with the alpha variant. this is the one that started in the united kingdom . the reason you'll see lots of lions is because we're looking at as much data as we can from as many countries as possible. but you see a definite trend amongst pretty much all is countries that it went up, it plateaued and it came down again. it's not gone, but it's definitely gone down. compare that with the beta variant from south africa . quite erratic, bear with a lot of countries and it didn't spread to as many as alpha did, but the bulk of them down here quite low as they are with the gamma very. and this
6:41 pm
is the one from brazil, again, not as many countries affected. and the bulk with them quite low again. but look at delta delta which originated in india and using a starting point here of april. all it has done is gone up. and there is no place. i mean, it is still on the rise, pretty much everywhere. in fact, looking at this map from out the are dot com which shows you where the delta variant has spread to over a 100 countries. now, and the concerning thing is when you start looking at the united states, the u. k. russia, singapore, indonesia, even australia, all upwards of 90 percent of their new infections come from. the delta variant looks on pisec is a global health advisor. electra university college london school, the pharmacy, she believes vaccines is struggling to contain the delta variant. oh, or back mean are still affected. 91 percent preventing
6:42 pm
hospitalization. the evac effectiveness at preventing transmission from one another to falling off at 341 percent. we know that more severe cases are covered and more like hospitalized, have been study, se, canada and other countries as well. for there is much more need for oxygen, as well as in india where the previous wild stream and other variance of concern are kind of dying out. because this is the super very into the moment if you will. but it's not necessarily going to be the last of the rest of the world on is going to, isn't, has back needed. they don't have too many vaccines. and that's one side that i'm worried about. because while of course,
6:43 pm
we need to those who are honorable of israel on to get that talk protection on their hope, the workers for the front lines and they're double acting and we see this the end with move new variance. is this the 3rd? this is, this is coming from the why that for those who low and middle in the world trade organization has, is still not put forward lifting patent measures. so it is going to be difficult to meet the supply requirements unless other vaccine manufacturers join the africa back made world. italy has fully vaccinated more than half its population above the age of 12. but hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants have been left out at m. randy reports from rome on a recent evening in rome, a couple of dozen people get their jabs had a pop up cobit 19 center. some are homeless. others are immigrants,
6:44 pm
clinics like this are the only chance they have to get vaccinated until 1 o'clock, another time of visit. you can't get a vaccine appointment, a health card visit a doctor if you'd like me and your residency isn't sorted out from anybody. across italy, there are more than 600000 people who live in work without documents, many of them migrant farm workers from asia and africa. and for months, italy has struggled to find a way to reach these communities. it was made more difficult because the delivery of care is handled by italy's 20 regions. so each region has had to come up with its own plan. i want to feed us, i need audio, and they want to feed on capability. it's a public health and political challenge. the goal is to provide a service to the last one's in line, migrants who have been totally exploited. i don't mean at the same time when we help ourselves by vaccinating them. now,
6:45 pm
regional health officials are partnering with agencies and charities and going directly to these communities, making appointments for people, whether they have national health insurance or not. they're also setting up mobile vaccines centers like this one on the edge of a large immigrant community. and 3 days official have vaccinated more than 1100 people here, all of them migrant farm workers, and 20 percent of them have no legal work papers. some here if those without documents were afraid of being caught out and sent home just by taking the shot out through a pin job translator, one and documented worker told us he wasn't scared. he just wanted to be safe from cove. at 19, many migrants are given a single johnson and johnson dos, an acknowledgement that they are hard to track down for follow up appointment. some officials though are hoping this is turning point for italy at the pop up clinic in rome. temporary national health cards are issued. so the vaccination become an
6:46 pm
entry point to give some form of assistance to people that do not have the union in italy relies heavily on foreign workers to pick its fruit and vegetables. although regions are trying to vaccinate as many people as they can, there is no national database of how many undocumented migrants have received the shot that poses a risk both to the migrant themselves and italians. adarine al jazeera rome thailand is banning domestic travel to the tourist hotspot of forget next month. but foreign is vaccinated against coven 19 will still be welcome. the resort island is at the center of efforts to revive the tourism industry, which is be devastated during the past 18 months. thailand was mostly unscathed by the pandemic, until recently on thursday it reported reco daily numbers of infections and death of the 1st person to be tried. and the hong kong national security law has been

6:48 pm
there was little mention of the protection of civil and political rights, which are in fact in the national security law. so now people just don't know whether these rights are protected at all. the boundaries are not very clear and hence it make people even more vehicle. i think nobody like to see mile and you know chaos. that's true. but we also warn hong kong to be what he was not too long ago of save by granted and a free city. but that is know, many people, a very, very worried in spite of now we have jubilation in the city. about our swim is our friends is winning gold medals and silver medal in tokyo. but the people are very, very worried. they don't know when they will step on the red line and get arrested and may be sent to jail for many,
