a 1000000 of those people for the 1st number of our 2nd jobs. and so i'm hopeful that people are beginning to realize how it sent the roof. the world health organization says current of virus infections worldwide of increased by 80 percent in the past month. in parts of africa, the number of deaths has doubled in that period. the w h o is worn in countries against the spread of the delta vary, now detected a more than a 130 countries for regions on risk, but non more so than africa. on current trends, nearly 70 percent of african countries will not reach the 10 percent vaccination target by the end of september. around $3500000.00 to $4000000.00 are administered weekly, on the continent, but to mid september, get this months tries to $21000000.00 at the very least it week.
many african countries have prepared well to roll out vaccines. but the buttons have not arrived. kenya is extending its nighttime curfew and battling old public gatherings. its health minister is warning, hospitals are overwhelmed and people who fall sick won't get to bed. kenya has been under some form of coffee since march last year. i know jerry and sprinter blessing a body has been suspended from the tokyo olympics after failing a drug test. the 32 year old to one long jump silver in 2008 tested positive for growth hormone. she'd qualify for the 100 meters semi final on friday . 10 track and field athletes were ruled ineligible to compete 3 days ago off the
failing to meet minimum testing requirements, as crossover live to correspond, and the richardson his line for us from tokyo. so how big of an issue is this becoming? it is an issue and the repairs, as you mentioned, that to be a wider issue within nigeria and not just a positive test for a bar i who was a metal contender in the 100 meters, which will be decided later tonight. but the athletic federation in nigeria has just simply failed to comply with what was requested of it in terms of pre competition doping test. and that meant that 10 athletes who are actually here in tokyo withhold that the last minute they wouldn't be allowed to compete. because they're flex, federations had not done the required tests, almost athletes, and the build up to these games. and it's a huge blow for nigeria. where 13 of the 25 metals they ever had a one in the lympics have been in athletics. so it's, it's
a huge blow for them for the truck and fail team. $5000.00 tests approximately will be done here in tokyo, on athletes. more importantly, perhaps, the international testing agency has done $25000.00 tests in countries all around the world and in all and picks for not just truck and failed in the build up to these games. and often the, the out of competition tests that return more positives in the actual test that take place at an lympics. also worth mentioning that for the 1st time it's in lympics. the anti doping program here is not organized by the host nation. it's organized body international testing agency, which is independent and in terms of sanctioning again, taken out of the hands of international olympic committee, put in the hands of the court of arbitration to sports. it's all an effort to be politicize, the whole issue of doping and make it making it as fair as possible for all athletes. and then be, was also got simone biles, pulling out of more events. are we going to fear again, the game?
it's looking ever more likely she's pulled out of 2 more finals. there are 2 more events still to come that she could take place could take parts in later in the games. the us olympic team saying that they'll continue to evaluate some i'm balls on a daily basis. somewhat weirdly. she was, she was very active on social media yesterday talking to fans about the issue she's going with. a lot of people chosen at these games just shuts off social media to try and focus on that particular sport and that particular mental health. but she's chosen to engage with people and talk about what she's going through talking about what she's described as the twist. these as the non engine gnostics, basically where your mind and body is not insane can. that's why she says she is the moment she poses, from video footage of her landing on a back when she was dismounting from the uneven bars. clearly not in a good place, but it has res, once again, the issue of mental health which more and more athletes fail able to talk about
what we've seen today. the england international character benz folks choosing to take an indefinite break from his sport to focus on his mental well being. and i think all the athletes coming to these games have been on the unprecedented stress already. the gains were delayed by one year, which affected their preparations, and of course, the living in this covered 19 by secure bubble where at a moment's notice, their games could be over because of a positive test. and inevitably, it takes a toll on, on a number of athletes. or i will leave it there. thanks so much. and the richardson the weather is next, then i'm hydro castro, outside of port leah, u. s. army base in the state of virginia for the 1st wave of afghan interpreter who aided us courses had safely been evacuated. ah
