a significant cove. at 19 resurgence. the european union coals for an immediate cease fire and negotiations was fighting intensifies in ethiopia. iran was president, demands us, sanctions been lifted as part of its returns, the 2015 nuclear deal, plus multiple floods this year have dumped an immeasurable amount of birth and murders, sanders, silt in rocks and large boulders in valleys all across this area. we are in the pool where the change in climate has been blamed for a series of devastating natural disasters. and i'm here so much of your sport, barcelona step up a pursuit of chubby. the club continued talks with cutters. all sud rumor for the captain back to the new camp as coach ah,
6:02 pm
we begin this news or in europe for the continence as once again, become the epicenter of the cove with 19 pandemic. that's the assessment of the world health organization which says there are more infections there than in asia. and africa combines cases are hitting record levels, especially in central and western europe. where vaccination rates on low germany is reporting the highest number of daily cases and the numbers are soaring in russia and ukraine. hospitalization, admission rates, duke of it 19, more than doubled in one week based on w, your europe's latest data. according to one, the label projection. if we stay on this trajectory, we could see another half a 1000000. gov at 19 bits in europe and central asia by the 1st of february,
6:03 pm
next year. and 40 city countries in oregon will face high to extreme stress on hospital bits at some point through the same period. well in the u. cave or infections are also rising, health regulators have approved marx anti viral pill to treat cove at 19. it's the 1st country to do so, and the pill will be used to treat patients with mild to moderate symptoms and across the atlantic in the u. s. companies with more than $100.00 or more employees will be required to ensure their staff are vaccinated or tested weekly. the byte administration is issued. a deadline of january 4th. companies failing to comply will be fines, nearly $14000.00 for every violation or will speak to alan fisher in washington, dc about that in just a moment. first though, let's at had to london, which on a whole is standing by for us, joe. no,
6:04 pm
they're quite an alarming message. they're from the world health organization. but the situation in europe. yeah, i would say a pretty troubling set of numbers released by the world health organization. you had a lot of it in your intro there. 78000000 current live infections across the why to european region is defined by the world health organization, including parts of central asia. and that number rising by a quarter of a 1000000 new cases every day, long with through 3600 deaths every day. and prompting homeschooler the w i chose europe director to warn the europe is once again back at the, at the center of the pandemic. now that comes, i can tell you, it was pretty much of a shock to a lot of people. a lot of populations, particularly in western european countries who had gone about their business thinking the threat had largely passed recently. well, it certainly hasn't. and the big question is, why is this happening? why is this happening, particularly in
6:05 pm
a region of the world that has greater ready access to vaccines and many other parts of the world and the w h o points to, to broad sort of factors that he believes are responsible. the 1st, the relaxation of public health and social measures take the u. k. for exam. as an example back in july or mandatory measures were lifted here that sent have a very clear message to the population that they could go about their lives as normal. and so they have done in sufficient vaccination coverage is the other factor that the w h o points too broadly. this means in one, in one sense, people coming to the end of their immunity, conferred by the double vaccination jab if they had it 6 months or more ago. and they haven't yet had a booster. that's happening a lot. and also vaccine hesitancy, also very prevalent, certainly in the east and part of your former soviet countries. places like sweeney lack fear at the moment. especially russia,
6:06 pm
where misinformation is pretty rife on social media. a lot of people are reluctant to take the vaccines, russia ferrying the worst of all because in that w h o european region registering well over a 1000 deaths every day at the moment. and you will know, you mentioned the u. k. they're, they've just, they've just authorized this new anti cove and pill, which is probably just as well, given the state of the numbers where you are much higher than any other western european country. it's estimated something like one in 10 of all new infractions taking place globally. happening here on the death toll and hospital admissions. uncomfortably high as well. again, as i said, the u. k is an example of a place where all mandatory restrictions have been lifted more and more people back in offices on public transport, fewer and fewer of them wearing muscle, recognizing any sort of precaution whatsoever. and england in particular. so the victim of its own success in having been 1st and fastest with the vaccine ro that at the beginning of the year. and now seeing high numbers of this waning immunity
6:07 pm
and struggling with its booster program because of what, in part because of real public apathy. because of all those reasons i've set up scientists to calling for precautions to be put into place immediately reintroduced or face uneven, deadly. i went to the government at this point, reluctant to do so. okay. jonah haul, they're bringing us up to dates from london. jonathan, i thank you very much indeed. let's take you across the atlantic. no to alan fisher . he joins, you know, from capitol hill. allan just took us through some of these new measures that the u . s. president is bringing in particular, the sanctions. $14000.00. fine for violation when you some sort of arrangement was coming when i have the date is january the 4th, which means companies now have 2 months to comply. essentially, if you employ 100 people or more, every one has to be vaccinated. and if you'd a walker that isn't vaccinated, then you've got to provide
6:08 pm
a weekly test that shows you a negative and weird a mask in the office. not only that employers aren't liable for the cost of those tests, so that will come out of the workers pocket. that's an incentive to try and make sure more people are vaccinated. except of course, if you're a health worker, then everyone has to be vaccinated and the same employees applies to federal workers as well. there are no exceptions there and certainly the biden administration is pointed to vaccine mandates and seeing how it's help people get back to what they point to united airlines. they are, they said you have got to be vaccinated or you lose your job. 99 percent of employees decided that they would rather be vaccinate to say with tyson's foods. one of the big food manufacturers in the united states, more than 96 percent of employees have received the benefit. will that be legal challenges to this? of course there. well, this is american 2021 attorney general's around the country and already intending to go to court to say the biden's administration can't do this. it is beyond the rima of the law that they are using. this is not a workplace injury,
6:09 pm
therefore they cannot legislate for this. but the, by the administration, very saxon, of the ground and so on. and russia will ensco has been speaking to a senate hearing just in the last 20 minutes said, mandates do work. and that means we can get the vaccination rates up and the risk of infection don't and will allen, you are joining us from the campus. so hell, just tell us more about the hearings that are going on. well, the whole idea is to look forward to not to look back. the problem is, as we get into the hearing and until he failed, she is one of those on the panel at people will say, well, hold on a 2nd a year ago, you said x. but why happen? so why should we believe, you know, but the whole intention is to try and prepare america for getting through this pandemic from here on in. and they're saying that things like the vaccination that has been approved for children between the ages of 5 and 11 is a big step forward. but ritual lensky again, she's the head of the cdc. the center for disease control said that the death rate
6:10 pm
is not as low as they would like. and so they still have got a lot of work to do. but they've also got one eye on the next public health emergency. they're aware that once they get rid of covered, there might be something just round the corner. and many people think that a medical was caught unprepared for what happened during coven 19. and so the intention by the senate and others is to make sure that america is prepared for want me be around the corner gallon fisher reporting live from capitol hill. thank you very much. alan. uganda president. as calling for east african leaders to meet and discuss the worst and conflicts in a few pm. well, the u. s. embassy in this about is allowing some of that stuff and their families to leave your peers. governments has declared a state of emergency is to grow in rebels, claim to have made advances towards the capital. european union is among those colon for an immediate cease far priyanka go to reports. it's not the 1st call to

6:18 pm
gwinnett ah, after months on hold talks to revise, the 2015 you iran nuclear deal have been shuttled for the end of this month. negotiations between the signatories in vienna, stalls in june. yes, as well. kim, the returns talks and says that expects them to pick up where they left off. the original agreements assigned in 2015 and was designed to limits to hans nuclear ambitions in exchange for sanctions relief. but in may 2018 then president donald trump withdrew the u. s and began re imposing sanctions. november last year the i. e. a reported around stock pile of enriched uranium, had reached 12 times the permitted levels. in april, in direct talks began in vienna to bring the u. s. and the wrong back into
6:19 pm
compliance with the j. c. p. away. next day, iran began enriching uranium up to 60 percent. or 6 rounds of talks were held in vienna. they concluded in june to allow for presidency for him. res, seem to form in you. government spent speaking earlier, mom's president is i liked his demand for us sanctions to be lifted as parts of a return to the deal. m rose nagondo. let them have them off in the letter today. our government looks protect the interest of the nation. we try to preserve the rights of the people in any situation to us talk should be result oriented. should bear results that include the reduction of hardships for our dear people. as we have said before, we didn't leave and won't be the negotiating table, but will resist excessive demand and stand in the face of the arrogant countries ignore the rights of the iranian people. we will resist the violations of international agreements. the rainy nation showed his resistance over the past 40
6:20 pm
years and will turn him, you know, in the studio is or iran correspondence dorsen jabari door. so those talk set to kick off within a week or so or, or by the end of the month, i were things looking at this stage. well, things are certainly not going to be easy. this new negotiating team lead by the deputy foreign minister is going to be looking to 1st talk about lifting the sanctions before iran will even think about returning to full compliance. there is a sense from various sources i've spoken to within the foreign ministry as well as analysts. in toronto, i believe that iran is looking towards much more of a linear approach with these talks rather than a parallel one that they've had over the past few months. that means that they're 1st going to talk about the sanction being lifted, and then they will talk about what technical aspects of their nuclear program they will bring back into compliance. this is in line with what we've been hearing from you as ministration, inter on it for him. bracy during his last televise speech,
6:21 pm
didn't give much time to this nuclear agreement. he doesn't seem to think it's as important as other issues around it's facing right now. and there is a sense that his foreign policy moving forward is much more looking towards the east end iran neighbors rather than relying on west european allies. so there is that going forward, but at the same time, it is important to know that the 7th round of talks is going to be held on november 29th will determine whether or not they'll be additional rounds because of course this is not and with one round of discussion, this is gonna have to go on, but if they are at a standstill and they can't move past this initial stage than there really isn't much hope so it will have to depend on what the americans expect as well coming in . but i think the iranians are very clear of what they're expecting to happen in their coming meeting. ok, dorsey? very. thank you very much. indeed. we'll let. so find out, ben. what the few as form america. kimberly whole kurtz is in washington. d. c. for us. kimberly, what is the euro strategy going into these tones while the united states expecting
6:22 pm
to work with its partners and allies, namely the european nations that have been working closely with the united states on this issue to make one message clear. and that is, that the window of opportunity for negotiating is not indefinite. in other words, that it cannot be prolonged in the united states will also, if iran takes any what it perceives to be provocative steps that window would close . so the united states is very keen to get to work and get to work quickly. they don't want to see this drawn out over a long period of time. and to that end, what we saw ready is the united states on the sidelines of the g 20 in this past week, having a meeting with some european leaders in order to try and compare notes on ron's nuclear program and also on the path forward. so it's very clear that the united
6:23 pm
states is looking to do this in partnership ad with the unified voice. okay. kimberly hawk at their law firm in washington dc. thank you. kimberly lebanon's prime ministers facing pressure to sac his information minister for closing your dispute with saudi arabia. george cardon, he made comments about the war in yemen that have angered several gulf states. senator has more from a routes this conference was about promoting tourism in a nearly bankrupt country. but instead, lebanese prime minister and mccarthy had to address a crisis threatening his 2 months old government, saudi arabia and some arab countries have severed ties with lebanon for what they see as an increasing dominance of the hezbollah armed group. and then as we move, we are determined to restore ties with saudi arabia and gulf states. i'm repeating my cost for the information minister to listen to his conscience had put circumstances into consideration and take the stance he should take. this is the priority of the solution to get out of the crisis. yes,
6:24 pm
he any how to haven't walk the had the empathy. the latest dispute was triggered by the comments of information minister george cred, hey, who called the human war, a saudi aggression. it's a difficult balancing act for a prime minister who wants to restore ties with the countries traditional economic and political partners, but whose cabinet is controlled by hezbollah and its allies. they have publicly back the minister who has reiterated his refusal to resign. i also need to gain that consensus. i agreements of has bella movement, the political parties, as well as the manner that part the, the part of the minister could back a not to resign as well. if the design, the diplomatic dispute is aggravating divisions and 11 on which is among the battlefields where even in saudi arabia, geopolitical tug of war is played out and talk to them and help them all of many at
