a new vaccine out specifically against this in about a 100 years also ahead fury and burkina faso protest is called for the president to go after attacks. they say he failed to stop and we speak to villages coming under fire. fighting and shelling intensify in easton ukraine. ah, begin with breaking news coming to us out of israel, where the government says it wants to band the entry of all foreigners for 2 weeks once approved. this will be the toughest travel been announced anywhere in the world since a new highly mutated cobit 19 variant was identified in south africa this week life to harry force it joining us from west jerusalem. harry. so when does this whole kickoff? do we think will it's the result of a late night emergency meeting of the corona virus cabinet,
2:02 am
which took place late on saturday evening after a brief announcement from the prime minister natalie bennett, that israel needed to act very quickly in the midst of all this uncertainty and not risk the progress already gained against the current of virus pandemic. and so the matches now, as you say, extremely stringent, all foreign travelers into israel will no longer be allowed in that is quite soon after foreign tourism was allowed to get into towards the beginning of november. so this is a major reversal of that policy. israelis coming back into the country if vaccinated will have to currency for a minimum of 3 days unvaccinated 7 days. and it's coming back from one of the newly red listed african countries. they will have to go into a government quarantine hotel until a test negative. on top of that, there will also be a return, at least partially to the use of the internal security agency. the sion bet

monitoring phones. that was something that was pretty controversial when used in the early stages of the pandemic, to say the least. this time around. they're saying that they are the reports, that they will just be monitoring those with confirmed cases of the new ami kron very. and all of this is pending full cabinet approval during the course of sunday . that's expected to go through. and if it does, then these new rules will come into force from midnight local time, sunday and monday. how many cases of ami chrome are there inside? israel will just one confirmed case so far a traveler returning from allow e, but 7 other suspected cases and 3 of those were not linked to recent foreign travel. so some suggestion of communities spread. so i think that's one reason among many potentially that there are these extremely strong measures being announced. there is also a history, a recent history with an israel,
2:04 am
of acting pretty strongly and pretty quickly in terms of a travel bands in particular and other measures as well. and the prime minister natalie bennett himself, set himself out as something wild and opposition as a bit of a corona virus expert publishing a book on the subject being very critical of his predecessor benjamin netanyahu and his response. so there is a personal political brand there. if you like at stake as well. and as he was saying, the, the main point of all this is to allow, in his words, the recent success, the relatively normal functioning of schools and businesses and the rest of society to maintain and, and still will be present as long as possible. and so there is this immediate closure of the border to foreign travel. harry, thanks very much, harry. forcing the talking to his life from west jerusalem. and the army kron variance of cooper 19, has been detected in more part of europe. the dutch government believe several

the 61 covey positive passengers who arrived at amsterdam ship all at port on friday. and there are now confirmed cases in the u. k. all of them connected to recent travel in southern africa. previously accused of acting too slowly on cove it. this time the u. k. government is moving fast. we're not going to stop people traveling. i would stress that we're not going to stop people traveling. but we will require anyone who enters the u. k. to take a p c r test. by the end of the 2nd day after their arrival, and to self isolate until they have a negative result. closing borders won't keep out the variant, but scientists hope it will by time. when you have a virus like this, it almost invariably is ultimately going to go essentially all over the issue of blocking tray of a travel from a given country is to just give us time to assess it better on despite the
2:07 am
on the con variant, having significantly more mutations than previous variants, there is cautious optimism that existing vaccines can be adapted to tackle it. you're not going to see a new vaccine in the next few weeks, or even, you know, the next month or so. but he's going to take longer than that. but it will not take the amount of time that it would normally take to manufacture and deliver that steam. it can be done at speed. now because of the understanding and knowledge that we have here for the biggest island, for politicians and scientists, is the question of public compliance. there were violent anti locked down protests in the netherlands and belgium last weekend and switzerland votes this weekend on whether to scrap the countries vaccine certificate scheme. despite rising infections that with uncertainties around the on the convent. me precautionary restrictions will likely meet pushback. hol brennan al jazeera, while the south african government is complaining about the way it's been treated

2:09 am
leveling and then let's go and get vaccinated, especially people my age, so we can protect ourselves. that's all i can say. i know we all have our opinions about the vaccines, but on my side i want to get vaccinated. but there's been a slower than expected vaccination rate in south africa. slightly more than 40 percent of adults have had at least one job. in terms of um, vaccinations. oh to, oh it's, it's some of choice with, it's a big snail. nod whitlow, too, too, too much or 2 people to tune. did he did big sneeze it at this point? because the living in leg avila excuse differently, right now. his administrative snares and as soon as possible as the holiday season approaches, the tourism industry had expected an increase in visitors, many of them from the u. k and europe to bring in millions of dollars worth of revenue the south african currency. the ryan's already lost its value off to the
2:10 am
announcement of the new variant. the government says south africa has been at the forefront of testing and tracking changes in code 19 and sciences history. it is important to see what the data on the new variable show before making any decisions and that sentiment trickle down to the general public way. many believes of africa being treated unfairly. the government is worried, the global reaction has caused unnecessary panic. it says it's begun talks with the european union and the united kingdom on the latest round of travel bands saying other countries didn't receive the same treatment. when you variance would take to elsewhere for me to mila, i'll do 0, johannesburg. ok, let's get more on this for you. joining us here is dr. oscar elaine. he's an epidemiologist and us public health official. he joins us from washington, dc. doctor, good to have you back here now to 0. ah, some countries over reacting to this it's
2:11 am
a very difficult decision. and one that i say it's a balance between evidence based decision making and the path implications. so you have a parent which has about 30 mutations on the spike protein. so that alone is alarming . or there's concerned because of not much information about it about as rapid rate of spread. in addition, i don't know whether there will be more implications on the treatments that are available. will it disable or make the vaccine effort minimize or, or lessened, or even the anti react monochrome antibodies or the other treatments? will it have a negative impact? so with that, i guess there's an error on the side of caution, but i totally understand the concern from the south african government, especially because of the policy and the financial implications to its industry as well. but we are in the mid to the global pandemic, which is showing us that it's not slowing down. does parts of the reaction have to
2:12 am
come down to the fact that one has to understand that? in the early days of the pandemic, small countries, smaller countries, were perceived to be reacting to what the pandemic was in its early days. very well . so the israelis, the south koreans, the singaporeans, the categories they is essentially locked down their countries, or they put stringent measures in place. because if you've got something like ami kron, which apparently is invincible at the moment, perhaps that's, that's the thinking. if you get that in a small country, it can spread like wildfire, it will totally be devastated. and that's where you have to balance what is possible, what is doable, and underlying all of these particular scenarios that you just painted is the other side of the coin. that of the human behavior we've seen as your reports of indicated individuals who have covered fatigue or pandemic fatigue and a summary case of some shape or form,
2:13 am
not necessarily adherent to the guidance around mask wearing or slowing down social connectedness. so all of these things do have a significant impact on top of the fact that we just reopened and we're trying our best to come back to a state of normalcy. but it is very difficult given the scenario that is before us . and this new variant which invariably can be very problematic. if it's not then one can always say that these drastic measures were helpful in slowing down the potential impact. but let's say it's not then, you know, as we would say the night at the day after we're looking at decisions that may have been helpful. even if it was just to slow down to get better information as to how to act new vaccine in 100 days. good headline, of course, is it possible? well, given the, given the technology is available whether. busy the m r ne,
2:14 am
or the other forms of treatment that are being that is made available now or anything is possible, but we have to necessarily see more information about that, you know, make sequence in which is to the benefit of south africa and other nations. haven't you know the sequence and has been very helpful to allow the scientists to figure out, how are things going to respond? what are going to be some efforts that are going to be necessary to help develop that? the beds and whether that defenses to be able to um, modify an existing vaccine or generated vaccine that could be targeted to this particular strain of variance. that it's very hopeful, but we need time and it's not necessarily on a side if we continue to with things as we were. ok, informative discussion doctor. thank you so much dr. oscar elaine. they're talking to us from washington. still to come on this program. my jerry is offering free vocational training for young people, but will it stop them from turning to arm groups and crime? also had burying the butcher guam, june. the widow of
