god, him all eyes we heads, ward honduras, stick awhile glass, costa rica, and panama south end of south america. bursts of rain through the columbia andes and also the peruvian andy's. and it remained soggy for the southeast corner of brazil, and fact rio de janeiro looking to see wind gusts on tuesday, up to 40 kilometers per hour. c as in ah, ah, flags lowered across the united states off the death of for my secretary of state. colin powell from cove at 19 complications. quite frankly, it is not possible to replace coal. we will mission. ah.
hello, i'm down, jordan, this is al jazeera alive from dell are also coming up hezbollah, lead us speaks of his group, strengthened speech responding to gun battles in beirut, the rising death toll and more rain is forecast in southern india, where the flooding of landslides have swept through the villages. ah, colin powell is being remembered as i trailed blazing soldier and diplomat off to his death at 84 from cove at 19 complications. he was the 1st african american to become chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and later u. s. secretary of state, but pals, reputation was stained by his 40 claims to justify the 2003 invasion of iraq is our white house correspondent, kimberly hawkins. the news, the colin powell had died of covered complications came as a shock to many. powell had been battling cancer but was fully vaccinated. a sad reminder that the vaccine doesn't always offer full immunity against the disease.
immediately the tributes to the retired 4 star general poured in his family a dear friend and a patron, one of our great military leaders and a man of overwhelming dishes. and i believe, shook 3 paul's years as a soldier, or what made him such an exceptional diplomat. he knew that war and military action should always be a last resort in iraq's behavior. show that as secretary of state under president george w bush, powell will be remembered as the person who made the case to the world in 2003 that iraqi leader, saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. a key justification for the american invasion of iraq. it was a claim he later regretted your to his credit. ah, he, he was accountable. yo, he, he admitted, you know, his mistakes ah, me or later. ah, that is not something that you we've heard across the bush national security team.
on monday. bush issued a statement, pointing out the power was so respected, he earned the presidential medal of freedom twice. powell, a vietnam veteran serv. most of his life in the u. s. military before he entered politics, as the 1st african american secretary of state, he set an example for those who came after him. the senate approved the 1st black president, brock obama said powell never denied the role that res played in his own life. and to in our society more broadly, but he also refused to accept that race would limit his dreams. he has been my mentor for a number of years. i always made time for me and i can always go to him with what tough issues. colin powell served multiple republican presidents, but later in life endorsed democratic candidates for president, he put duty to country above allegiance to any political party. yet another reason
that in a divided united states, americans from the right and left are honoring the example set by colin powell. kimberly, how can al jazeera washington? well, let's bring in doctor ali thought on his a vax and ologist and a junk professor at the university of michigan, and he joins us live now from another. allie, good to abbey, back on the program. look, i mean, many people will be surprised that colin powell died from cove at 19 complications given that he was fully vaccinated. i mean, does this re kimbler debate about how effective vaccines really odd you think thank you for the invite. low mr. ball actually has this situation over health situation, which is mainly the cancer is a cancer patients on on can be and patients would be what we call immunocompromised and also that the immune system is not responding to vaccines.
and in fact, there was not couple of obligations lately, about immunocompromised people and patients, their response to the vaccine was very weak and very poor. and therefore would expect that somebody would health condition would not respond to the act seen. so we cannot really say that the vaccine did not work, and that's the one aspect of it. the other aspect is what there is what we call in denison, which means that the immune system gets weaker with age. our loss, 84 years old. which means that on, so that's another fought. so if you put these 2 together, you don't expect that the vaccine will be pulled me like any other age or any other person who is healthy. so base. okay, what we are seeing here is not the failure of the vaccine, but we are seeing the effect of the unicode bromide conditions including big cancer
and cancer. but alley, i mean, does code in power case then beef up the argument for the empty boxes who say, look, what's the point, getting the vaccine anyway, if they don't work, that's not true. you know, that's not true. this is really not true because we know that the vaccine works in all cases, but there are conditions and health conditions that the immune system nature, that's the new system is not really bad for me because of disease because of aging . and because of other things, and in this specific case, we cannot blame the axis because we knew that the back that the immunity compromise conditions of the all is really an important part of what is happening. and the complications that does not mean that the we have to get back on hand. on the other hand, this is really make new vaccination and must do, must have because we need to be nice people around people at risk. and people are
like the ball and other people who are really sick and the compromise they do in order to protect them. we need to be vaccine around them. so the back the by the virus will not be meant to these people. and the reason the obligation. so alley is this case, then a reminder that widespread vaccination is still critical to give an added layer of protection to the most vulnerable because the more people are vaccinated, the less the virus then can spread in the community. exactly, that's really the most important point. and then the lessons learned from this case, which is the very highly abruptly side when we learn that we have to immunize people, people have to get back to it, but only the deck themselves, but also the protect the loved ones who are at risk to contact the infection and
have the complication and even get do so that's really a very important point and we should put it on to work for convincing people that it's not only you. if you are also have a responsibility to protect the people that are born in this case could be parents, could be grand parents could be neighbors, could be friends. so that's really a very important point that we have to use to convince people that it's time for to get involved and to take the vaccine. so we can predict ourselves and protect the other so it can prevent the virus from infecting people who are getting dr. alley puts him always good to get your thoughts. thank you very much indeed for talking to out of here. thank you very much. now south korea's military says an unidentified projectile has been fired from north korea as eastern coast instead of landed in the sea of japan, north korea,
