3:00 am
and freedom go sleet, a witness documentary on al jazeera. ah for she signed to see a newly identified cove in 19 variance in southern africa is the most concerning that they've seen. ah, 11 malcolm on pete adobe. you're watching all to see or alive from doha. also coming up in an exclusive interview, the deputy head of sedans, ruling council says last month's military takeover was the best available option. a vigil is held to those who di trying to cross the english channel
3:01 am
a day after almost 30 refugees and migrants dropped. and a russian rights group that spent decades exposing soviet era crimes fights against efforts to be shut down. ah, let's get going. our top story you case i insists, are describing a new cobit 19 variant identified in southern africa as the most concerning. they have seen that yet, the u. k. health security agency says it has mutations that could make it spread and infect people more easily. it adds that the variance spike protein, is dramatically different to the original corona virus. the cobit 19 vaccines are based on the south african sciences, say they've detected the buried in small numbers of people. so far, cases have also been seen in botswana and hong kong. will that be early indications
3:02 am
we have office fairy is that it may be more transmissible than the delta variant and it, the vaccines that we currently have may be less effective against it. our scientists are deeply concerned about this varied i'm concerned, of course, and that's one of the reasons we've taken this action today. i will say we don't know enough about this very and no one does. i think probably the u. k knows more the most because the excellent work we do on surveillance, but i think it is right that we take this approach and we remain cautious. ok, let's bring in the doctor, eric, phi golding. he's an epidemiologist and a senior fellow at the federation of american scientists. he joins us from washington. d. c. dr. eric vital, doing good to have you back here on al jazeera. this comes down to this thing called a spike protein. what is that? and what's different about this variant? things that happen despite protein is the main protein,
3:03 am
the week designer vaccines around and directly attaches to human ace to cells and therefore interest or cells. so this variance has over 30 mutations and not just any 3030 of from the worst mutations that we know from past variants that make them more transmissible, more bases and not just the beta because both of beta began to faction as well. this is a very worried sun, and this pirates, you know, it's also the, if you look at the happening object signals, it's spiking across south africa, not just in wonder where to region 6 or 7 region. so south africa. and it's in transmitting very quickly worldwide. it's also arrived in hong kong and had immediately to break through cases and which luckily were caught in hotel warranty. but it is very worried phone,
3:04 am
and the fact that evaded the vaccines of the 2 people. these 2 people in hong kong were both double for pfizer. by onset backs and it also lends credibility that this virus is very, very you basis and could both really bad properties and could become worse than delta. what is it about a corona virus or this corona virus, that when it's going through the process of mutating, it mutates in the direction of travel. that means it's stronger than what's gone before. well, what happens is that if it's not stronger than with before, see right. now the king so far in the past 6 months is that delta variance, if it's not as successful at the delta variance, it's not going to succeed. because delta very has, has become the global dominance strain. but if something is faster, bitter, stronger, in many ways, and more basic, more importantly,
3:05 am
then that is what the variance could succeed among those parts of the world where we have a lots of axes and lots of people who been previous infected adults varying and have developed natural immunity to the delta variant, but that to the delta, not to this be 115 to 9 new. that's why the, with the big worry is that this could be worse than delta. and that's what a lot of scientists are saying. they haven't been this worried since they saw the delta. ok if it's worse than the delta of air. and if it's stronger than the delta variance could a push back be as simple as have a 4th or 5th, or even a fixed vaccine because there are areas, there are regions in the world where i'm sitting in the middle east is one of them . there are regions in the world where people have already had the 2 main vaccines, but it's called a booster vaccine. number 3, it's not actually a booster. it's another fool vaccine. that's right, and i think 1st of all,
3:06 am
i think the booster shot is more important than ever because, you know, after the 2 doses of the pfizer, people have average 700 level antibodies. after the 3rd shot, you have over 200222500. 2 booster is i would say the most critical shot of the theory. and that's why many people all need it. and israel has been able to hold back in the way recently because of the national rollout. the boosters and the u. k. success is also partly because of the booster, but the booster can only go star flo far but we but having the booster definitely will protect you to some degree. the issue is will it be enough? and i would warn those who previously think, oh, i previously impacted, i was natural immunity infection, munity, that is not enough to we know that, that to wayne's as well over 6 months. and that, that protection is only as good as your protection against the previous barriers,
3:07 am
not the more you basic with 32 different mutations that could make it more basic. and that is what we have right now. and that's why scientists around the world are concerned. and that's what you gave them posing the child restrictions to southern africa. ok, we've got to leave it there. dr. eric bible, then good to talk. start to thank you very much for the deputy head of sedans, governing council has told al jazeera last month's military takeover was the quote, best option to stop what was a spiraling crisis. general mohammed hamden dead glo, also known as him. ed d says they discussed it with all parties including the then detained, prime minister, who he says was on board abdullah hum dock has since been reinstated by the generals and a new power sharing deal comes in hitting a dover here. what's happened on october 25th was the ultimate of a long process. since that change started in sudan during that process. many
3:08 am
discussions were made. and many initiatives were proposed by various parties, the prime minister himself proposed to initiate. and during our meetings in the transitional partners council or the sovereignty council, with that cabinet of ministers, we made maximum effort. but we couldn't reach a breakthrough. at that point, we were left with 3 options, the best of which was the move we had taken. who was it was completely agreeable to the prime minister of the work. we did not make such a move on our own with another it was who will come and be the prime minister was in agreement with us as to the decision we had adopted. however, for him with the move should be endorsed by the freedom and change coalitions. as they said, we were left with 3 scenario. freedom and chase coalition, endorsing the dissolution of the government, which was next to impossible. the 2nd was the move we had taken,
3:09 am
and the 3rd was the collapse of our country. we adopted the best option available, as we made the right decision from our perspective, and at the same time prevented the collab. david chin is a former us ambassador to ethiopia and keno fast. so he says people in sit on a still facing uncertainty and they're struggling to trust their leaders poorly. it was the best option for the military. and for the general's impact, it may have been the only realistic option. well, since the protests were going very much against them, remains to be seen. whether this is going to be the best option for the people in the straight for the civilian elements. i'm sure the society could be a useful 1st step, but it is nothing more than that. it's only a 1st step. and it's a question of where does this go from here?
3:10 am
are there generals really serious about you have enough power or at least some power over time? and if so, one cannot rule out the possibility of my worth. but if they're not willing to give us any power, this is not going to work. in effect, the queue all ready took place. so what we have now is sort of picking up the pieces after the 2. and clearly the journals are trying to make the best of a difficult situation for themselves. the real issue is, are, are they willing to give up not only political power, but a certain amount of economic power. they have significant interest in the mining sector in sudan for example, that goes right to the military. and at some point that has to become part of the civilian government. and you can watch the full interview with general dec low on talk to al jazeera at $730.00 g m t on friday. thousands of sydney's have been back
