as the u. k, tries to move on from the pandemic. forrest john symbols set out plans to pay for the damage done to the economy club with post bricks, if woes and opposition to plan benefit cuts. candler government offer reassurances of better times ahead lie coverage of the conservative quality conference on al jazeera. ah the united states surpassed the 700000 deaths from cove at 19. as nearly 70000000 americans remain unvaccinated, despite the easy availability of jazz. ah, and come out santa maria, nearon doha. this is the world news from al jazeera doesn't matter whether it's in
5:01 am
6 minutes a day or 6, we would really get it done. you as president meets fellow democrats, as the party remains divided over to massive spending. bills, also spiraling humanitarian crisis. now, complicated by a diplomatic one, is the un tells ethiopia, it has no legal right to expel 7 of its officials. and the former children, president mc hal, soccer really is detained just hours after his return from an 8 year exxon. ah, so we're gonna start with corona, virus news. and in just the past few hours, the united states has gone past 700000 deaths from cove at 19. that number made official by the johns hopkins university covered track a. we're looking at just numbers for the us here in a total of 43000000 cases, we focused thou on the white's number 700258 debts in total look below it though as
5:02 am
well. that number just in excess of 51000 is how many debts we've seen just in the past 28 days or loans, or 50000 people did in just the past month, essentially. and in another development in the us, the state of california is become the 1st to make it compulsory for school children to be vaccinated against covered 19 governor gavin newsome says the move could go into effect as early as january. the mandate is pending approval from the us food and drug administration, the f d i. that would be for 12 to 15 year olds day after already fully approved vaccines for students over the age of 16 in august. now when you look at california official covert data, which we've got here on their website, you start to see why such a mandate is being put in place or bring you down to this graph here showing number of cases. the red line is the number of cases of people who are unvaccinated. the blue line is those who are vaccinated that split, which you see there is essentially saying that you are 8 point one times more
5:03 am
likely to get cov, if you are unvaccinated, just having a quick look as well here, they're dashboard, their number of cases and deaths a still averaging 6300 death cases, i should say every day with an average of just over a 100 deaths as well. so we've got the data. let's discuss it with dr. oscar elaine, who is in napa, jamie ologist in a national public health official with us from washington, d. c. i always nice to talk to you, dr. let's not with the 700000. first of all, i mean it's another one of those milestones that you never want to get to. can you break it down a bit further for us and tell us where the deaths are coming these days? obviously it's, it's high amongst the unvaccinated people. is there a geographic trend as well? thank you so much for having me on board today. yes, that's 700000 continues to be a significant concern. as we're asking about the rates of data where we're seeing
5:04 am
that in the u. s. they're primarily all across the country, but we're seeing significant pockets, of course, in the se, in the, in the midwest. and definitely in parts of, as we say, southern areas of our, of our country. which justly points to the fact that this of sustain activity, and especially the way it's in it's impact and the unvaccinated is, is such a concern, especially as we talk about the fact that deaf rates or discounts that we see are lagging indicators. so by the time individuals are dying, we've already gone through a significant progression disease, which will continue to perpetuate in our, in our society of forge and has not showed up the vaccine is there. i mean, it's readily available. joe biden has kept saying, you know, go to the website, text number, whatever it is, you can find it, it's there out there, right? yeah, i mean the, the, the sad part of all this,
5:05 am
when we think about data and more specifically around the access, there are certain countries in the world where people still don't have access to vaccines. the vaccines are readily available, especially in attendance to individuals who may not necessarily be able to build themselves of it. and even so, we've seen in this country alone, only about $64.00, roughly 65 percent that have gotten one dose at least one dose. but when you look at the vaccinated, that, that percentage is roughly about 55 percent. so less than half or a little bit more than half, sorry, our population are fully vaccinated. in the midst of the global pandemic, it's totally mystified. so then you get the case and i mentioned it here earlier than california will now make it mandatory for children to be vaccinated for going back to school. that shouldn't really be a big deal. should it? because there are any number of other vaccines which children already have to have
5:06 am
if they want to go to school. shouldn't we be viewing cove? it is another one of those we should in a rational our perspective. but as you see this particular pandemic and even going far back in, in history, and i'm just going to stick on american history for a minute. there was reference, of course, in 1777, george washing required his soldiers get it, not clear for small box, but then as we saw from 17 hundreds to 18, hundreds were small parks was particularly rapid. there were still people fighting, being annihilated against smallpox. some concerns were, well, it's been, you know, money is being made on the vaccine providers or, you know, we don't know, we don't trust in all these particular elements. so in every walk of life exceeds that, there's been some degree of pushback. but to the extent that this push back as we're seeing today, has been, has such a due terrorist impact on how we are able to get out of the slump of try to combat
5:07 am
in suppress this. this is really global pandemic is of great concern. can you just remind me what the situation is with approval for children getting vaccines in the united states who is approved at what age? and is that only certain trans certain types of vaccine which have been approved. yes, so you still have the approval that's allowed for 12 years and older for one of the particular vaccines that are on the market and they're still data being evaluated. so with the u. s, you have the approval and part of the approval also requires there to be a secondary or should say a, another group that really meets under c c as an advisory group or to really provide those kinds of recommendations. so it seems that the date is still out. our lease date is in a request to rent, but haven't gotten through full approval for all of the vaccine candidates out
5:08 am
there. and then on top of that, we're hearing of new new potential data that says that there's some medication that one can take which can help minimize the risk of exposure. i risk of hospitalisation. but as it pertains to the vaccination in the childhood population is still not available for the less than 12. but we are really hoping that we can turn the table and turn the tide, i should say, and really get more of our population who are significant risk, which is another reason why if you have such a vulnerable population, especially in the child, the child range to be analyzed or pre adolescent. it's imperative that those around develop that cocoon of, of, of i would say protection by being vaccinated. the logic once again, it's really difficult to really overcome why there's such a hesitancy. unable resistance against vaccination at this present moment. for get
5:09 am
your shop simple as that isn't a doctoral skyline. always a pleasure talking to you. thank you for your time. thank you. me mother you as pharmaceutical company. merc says trials show it's experimental. coven. 19 treatment is reducing hospitalizations or can reduce hospitalizations and death by half. the data hasn't yet been published or peer reviewed, but smoke is seeking emergency use authorization in the us if approved, it would be the 1st pill treatment for cove at 90. on to the news in the white house, as the u. s. president and members of his democratic party have made progress as they try to rescue jo biden's economic agenda and remove foreign american president biden met, members of his own party on capital hill divisions among democrats. threatened his ambitious plans with progressives, vowing to block a one trillion dollar infrastructure bill. on this, there was larger social spending and a greater focus on climate change. until you were gonna get
5:10 am
this matter with matter whether it's a 6 minute day or 6, we would really get it done. rosalyn jordan is following developments for us from washington. it comes down to whether members of congress in the president's party can agree on terms on both the social spending slash environmental bill, as well as on the infrastructure spending bill if they can work out their differences on one, the actual price tag for the 1st bill because there are some in the senate who say that bill's just simply too expensive at $3.00 trillion dollars as well as work out the idea that there's going to be a guarantee that that bill is going to be passed if more liberal members of the house of representatives actually decide to vote for the infrastructure bill,
5:11 am
so there's a lot of horse trading that goes on here. they're supposedly going to be at least one more vote on friday evening in the house of representatives. but we don't know what time that votes going to happen, and exactly what they're going to be voting on. they have usually isn't just, all right, we're going to vote on a bill and let's go. there are a lot of procedural steps that have to be voted on before you can actually vote on a measure. and given that there is an, as of right now and announced a decision on what to do with the social spending flash environmental bill, it's not clear whether or not they're going to get that worked on this weekend. but as we heard from president joe biden, he's not apparently all that worried if he says, i can wait 6 weeks. it does just make it work. let's make it work the right way in order to get most of his goal. because after all, this is a negotiation. united nations has told ethiopians, prime minister, it doesn't accept the country's decision to expel 7 of its senior personnel. if you
5:12 am
appear, says the officials are being removed for meddling in the internal affairs of the country. that announcement came out of the u. n. 's aid chief said a de facto blockade. our name to the region was causing severe malnutrition among children. the humans as it could affect humanitarian operations. that helped more than 5000000 people in the war torn region of take, i aren't from addict, editor james base has more from the you in a new york for now. the u. n. is not withdrawing the 7 high level members of its staff that the government of ethiopia say should be expelled from the country. the you and 2nd, general antonio terrace picked up the phone to the theo, p and prime minister abbe armoured of the you and says that it doesn't accept the principle that these staff are now persona non grata. and it is the long standing legal position of the organization not to accept the application of the doctrine of persona non grata with respect to united nations officials. this is a doctrine of the applies to diplomatic agents accredited by one state to another
5:13 am
state. the application of this doctrine denied nations officials is contrary to obligations under the charter of the united nations. however, the ethiopian foreign ministry is double down issuing a new statement, giving more details of what it says is the meddling by the 7th staff in internal affairs. it also says that a discussion of the issue by the un security council would be a blatant violation of its national sovereignty. but that discussion has taken place a closed session of the security council coming as it is now october under the presidency of kenya. a neighbor of ethiopia that has close relations with the country. i asked kenya's ambassador whether by its actions, ethiopia, now risk becoming a parent state, the canyon government. and our delegation certainly is, is not considering a questions about perio state or what the response of the european government is.
5:14 am
we are considering all the statements, including some of the communications or from the foreign ministry by twitter. and we're con to noon, to actively be informed and trying to be responsive to the situation as evolves. but we have every hope that it will got in a positive direction. so what is the next step? i am told ireland is currently circulating the draft of a statement to all the security council members. all of them though, must agree before it is issued. a check on the world whether is next and then another volcanic fisher opens in the canary islands, sending lava flowing into new areas on la palmer and the u. k. government insists of fuel crisis is easing, but one in for petrol stations still try. ah, it's another beautiful sunny day, the 35000 feet,

5:23 am
stated that they spent over a $1000000000.00 in prosecuting danziger and defending chevron. and obviously this is a message to any human rights lawyer go up against the big corporation and we will take you down, destroy you dancing, or plants, you appeal the sentence. as for chevron, the company has yet to pay a penny in damages. kristin salumi al jazeera new york, the former president of georgia macau soccer field has been detained just hours after arriving back in the country for the 1st time in years. earlier, he'd posted a facebook video saying he wanted to support the opposition in south at his election despite the risk of being arrested. it was 2013 month august really left georgia when his 2nd term as president ended years later, he was sentenced in absentia to 6 years in prison. foreign abuse of power, which he said was politically motivated from farsi walker has moved from sibley c.
