7:20 pm
administered in india. the government once the entire population immunized by the end of this year. and it's also started exporting vaccines again as production is being ramped up. but still in parts of europe, the reluctance to get to not kill ation is pumping aside in infections. as bennett smith reports by finding its health workers across some of the remotest parts of the country, india has now given at least one dose of cobit 19 vaccine to 3 quarters of its 1380000000 population prime minister, nor, and remote. he visited a new daily hospital to celebrate the billionth dose, but only 31 percent of had 2 doses that had a certain degree of apathy, as well as the feeling that the worst as fast as there is no for the rest. so many people are not really going in for the 2nd dose, straight away in years, sitting on vaccines stock of a 100000000 doses,
7:21 pm
and has recently started exporting again. it's africa where they're needed less than 5 percent of the continents population has been vaccinated. the world health organization says that could mean the pandemic goes on for a year longer than it needs to developing countries should not have to wait for the charity rich nations. because that charity, as we've seen in the last year in a hall, is not happening. we cannot rely on their largest, we have to have manufacturing. and to do that, we have to share the recipe that we're publicly funded in the 1st place in some eastern european countries. the challenge is persuading enough people to get jumped . latvia is the 1st european nation to go back into lockdown. only 54 percent of latvian adults are vaccinated. you average is 74 percent. bulgaria and romania are also struggling to cope with a surgeon infections while in russia. corona virus related death, i've hit another daily record of more than a 1000. the government is imposing
7:22 pm
a week long workplace shut down from the start of november. it's very clear that in countries that have lower vaccine uptake, that's where we're seeing the serious pandemic effects at the moment in terms of deaths and people ending up in hospital. and so at the general population level, i believe that russia sits around $0.30 with a complete immunization series. and that's similar to what we're seeing in other countries like romania and bulgaria, u. k. as more cases than france, germany, italy in spain combined. and poland is also facing a significant rise and affections now at $5000.00 a day, which may require drastic action just as the continent heads towards winter. bernard smith al jazeera, all european leaders are calling for dialogue with poland. as an increasingly busy feud overshadows meeting in brussels, that was supposed to focus on the energy crisis. several said that you should not release the $42000000000.00 and pandemic recovery funds until the issue is resolved

7:24 pm
in europe, natural gas prices of saw, that means a consumers bills are being pushed up. what european leaders are, are saying is that they need to becomes more self reliant when it comes to energy. the need to stop depending so much on these fluctuations in the market, on imports from other countries. and way to do that, said the european commission head o'sullivan. de leon is to move as rapidly as possible a to renewable. so things like a wind and solar power. now as the greenland ice sheet melts, huge deposits of rare earth elements are being uncovered. and these are vital in the production of low carbon technology such as electric cars and wind turbines. but farmers who are worried about radioactive dust and waste water on trying to block these mining projects. and it can't visited the town of na suck in south greenland. the sight of one of those proposed mines a statue of leaf ericsson,
7:25 pm
the viking, who said to have discovered america 400 years before columbus gazes out overseen. that might surprise you. it's the end of summer and the sheep have been rounded up for market. farming is part of the way of life in the south, but these lands also hold new possibilities. i headed up a mountain valley near the town of na sat. the rocks here hold some of the world's richest deposits of rare f minerals. this is the sites of an old uranium mine, it's long been decommissioned. but now international mining companies want to dig deep again. the rock we see all around the same was for 3 or 4 kilometers beneath the earth's crust. and then about a 1000000000 years ago, these mountains just rid up, and they reckon that within this area alone, there are one and a half 1000000 tons of rare with minerals, with another 26000000 tons at a site nearby. and all of that combined is enough to supply the world total need, a rare earth minerals for 115 years,
7:26 pm
which is why this whole area is just so valuable and has so much attention. this is my mother's father. i met with neil secaria son who's been fighting the proposed mind for years. man, i to shaw, so i like to ship. if the mind gets to go ahead, the 1st thing that will affect us is dust followed by radioactive radiation. those things will start from the 1st day of production that's going to affect our water supply. and it's only 3 kilometers away from the mining site. meaning we won't be able to continue living in norfolk public meetings were held earlier in the year with the mining company involved. although they didn't attend the most recent ones . they green, the minerals who are australian, and part chinese owned their c. o. told al jazeera, there's been misinformation about the project in the community that does not accurately reflect the impact assessments and his cause concern among local stakeholders. this is unfortunate when the project is met. stringent environmental standards, mining would bring jobs,
7:27 pm
business opportunities and economic stimulus for the local community. the cross greenland, the issue is so controversial, it toppled the national government and in came the indigenous in europe, party, who have promised to stop the mind. but they recognise a future government might reverse that as a day draws to a close more sheep being rounded up, the farmers have grave concerns about the impact of toxic waste on the land and waterways. the sheep thrive on the water will fav, voice it, and the sea will be processed and then we will be process. i will not never accept the mining the green lantern current to have been keep going in 1000 years and not many people could. so rise here and let us be strong to live here in greenland. long ago the viking saw the potential of this part of greenland, and as the ice sheet melts, making more mining sites accessible. interesting, green and rich resorts, it will only increase. mcclark al jazeera cassie also greenland.
7:28 pm
