3 against his country and its neighbors. the world health organization has warns the omicron variance is likely to spread globally and poses a very high risk. it's searching countries to speed up the vaccination wall loads more than 10 countries have no confirmed cases. all the variance and g 7, health ministers are due to whole talks later on monday or south african talk say, who raised the alarm about the new variance says hope patience of shown mainly mild symptoms so far. for me to miller reports from johannesburg. angelie good sir. it's the south african doctor who 1st to take the new symptoms in patients who had contract cove at 19. well, she says the symptoms up and tuleya cases so far have been mild. so what is interesting is that, that the clinical symptoms or not the same, then with delta,
2:03 pm
extreme tightness, and fatigue, and the young people that was how we 1st detected with a bit of her body i, campaign, and headache. very, very similar to what you will normally see with any viral infection. so the average has to take to just over 50 cases of the new variant and enabling, but swan or 900 people have been infected. they've also been cases in belgium, israel and other countries. scientists say it may take up to 2 weeks to better understand the variance to determine how easily it spreads and how well vaccines work to protect people. because these more than 30 mutations, that might, it might escape the immune system, or it might xscape the vaccines. what we have seen so far is people that has been vaccinated specie we're far, is it around? we had the last short in august this year did contact the virus and it's mild, very, very much symptoms. there are no known admissions to hospitals. hill people,
2:04 pm
the contract, the new variant. what is your view then on the global reaction to this variant being detected in south africa? extremely premature. and you know, it is as if they went into a frenzy and each and everyone out there on biking a great a high about this. and the question is, you know what, why we have, we have won't that we are going to see a full or a wife. we have said they will come variance. we did say that the variance will mostly come from unvaccinated i v p. people who's not controlled on the medication or never been to taking any medication. that's not, that's something that's new. well, scientists say the variant is behind a sharp rise of cases in the halting province. how the spread of the disease is managed should be carefully considered. an increasing number of experts say the low
2:05 pm
downs and travel bands don't work. as i instead damaging economies and causing unnecessary panic, then says the focus should be on ensuring everyone in the world has access to vaccines. south africa, india and other countries have been for months calling for patient waivers to allow for vaccines to be manufactured around the world. so far to 70 percent of africans have received a job with very low vaccine access, with the inability to be able to fully make our own vaccines and to be able to get out of this been dynamic fast enough in a timely manner with the vaccine martin that we are witnessing and the stigmatization of certain countries in africa related to the variance. this is not a good look for the global not what we need is cooperation. what we need is global solidarity. and what we're getting in return is actually of a punitive approach to how we can actually all managed has been doing 2 weeks from now. when we might see a different picture, we might see
2:06 pm
a total different clinical picture from, from us what we experienced currently. but, but for now, we can't even cite, escaped the vaccine efficacy. we can say that while travel bands are often used by time to better understand new variance and the spread of the coven, 1900 virus. some scientists in south africa, a calling it's a futile exercise for me to mila al jazeera johannesburg. well, let's bring in june whole who's following developments from london june. we've just heard that if you from south africa, meanwhile, the rest of the world just putting up its defenses as new cases of this new variance keep getting discovered. what's the latest where you are? well, i mean, we've been here before i move. we've seen how rapidly new variance, new, and more transmissible periods are able to spread. i think extremely likely on that basis that the numbers we have are just the beginning of those numbers will continue to grow. there's already evidence of community transition transmission.
2:07 pm
and all of that, in spite of, you know, travel bands on selected countries. so yes, the numbers are there. the numbers are growing. 6 new cases in scotland, 3 in the u. k. 13 in portugal, 13 in the netherlands, france, germany, denmark check republic. and so the list goes on and you know, countries adding to their restrictions in response to this new variant as well. that frenzy that we come into, middle talking about new restrictions do in france. we understand here in the u. k, the government adding to its travel bands with a more strenuous testing regime for people arriving from all countries. the return of mandatory mosque wearing in some indoor settings and booster jobs now being offered to over 18. so they will be from this week and that's happening all over the world as the world continues now to hold it spread possibly for the next 2 weeks, while that detailed forensic investigation goes on into the actual properties of
2:08 pm
this micron barrier eval bill that really is watching weight at the moment, june of what we trying to determine just how very linds and how dangerous this new variance is already governments to taking action in the g 7 ministers are set to meet this afternoon. that's right. the u. k. presidency has called a meeting, a virtual meeting of health ministers of the g 7 to share information to discuss a coordinated response. among other things, probably to hear that w h o cool for a stepped up vaccine distribution program. and of course, in line with that they will be again bombarded with calls. i have already been from the south african president, several ram opposed for that vaccine program to be more equally distributed around the world. vaccine inequality is something, of course that perpetuates the pandemic, particularly in the global south. the g 7 hasn't even met. it's pledges that it
2:09 pm
made in june this year, the summit in cornwall to donate doses, to the global stop that hasn't happened. the call goes on for the vaccine, a technology sharing, so the global staff can produce their own vaccines. one assumes that this will be on the agenda at the g 7 summit today. again, they coordinate their response to a barrier, but we still don't know very much about. okay, jonah, how they're bringing 2 dates from london. jonah for now. thank you very much. in age representatives from russia, china, germany from some the u. k. that's, that's a whole talks with the radian officials in vienna. it's in the hope the salvage in the 2015 nuclear deal comes days after the you and watchdog release to report detailing concerns of a lack of access to surveillance. this is from yvonne's nuclear sites. to homes you government says warning the talks will fail unless all sanctions are lifted or dos
2:10 pm
. jabari is following those talks 1st, enjoy started from vienna door. so where do things stand? this are well, at the moment, we are waiting for the iranian delegation, who arrived in the austrian capital on saturday to meet with the european, a members of the signatories of the j. c. p. o. a has gotten nuclear deal is known . the iranians have held meetings with the chinese and their russians on sunday, and in the next few hours, they will be meeting with the europeans. they have a very specific list of demands for the americans. the americans, of course, are also here, but they're not meeting directly with the iranians. they're at another a venue and the europeans will go back back and forth between the 2 sides. there we didn't say all these sanctions have to be lifted. they have to be compensated for the revenue they've lost since the u. s. left the deal in 2018 and impose a series of sanctions on her ons, oil and banking sector. and of course, this delegation is new, afford the europeans and the americans because of the new government in teheran,
2:11 pm
it's headed by the deputy foreign minister at buggery, who is accompanied by 38 other members of various levels of government, but most of which come from an economic background. so there is a sense that this huge delegation from iran is very much concentrating on lifting dough sanctions. and the fort deputy foreign minister has already said that they're not going to be discussing iran's nuclear program in these talks. this is about how the u. s. will come back into the fault of the nuclear deal. well, everyone has all these competing demands here. doors and we have been here before the gulf between the 2 sides. really is quite substantial. do you get a sense of there being any optimism over breakthrough or are things really at a low point as low as the ever been? well, many here believe there are the lowest points and i think they're coming days here will determine how things move forward. this date of november 29th was set by the
2:12 pm
iranians. it is a significant for them because it is almost to the day a year later after one of their highest ranking nuclear scientists last and fact was out there was assassinated inside iran. and that is something that they have been alluding to and, and they are here because they believed that the united states left the deal and, and went back on their commitment. the remaining signatories, state iran has to go back into compliance. and the iranians say we will as soon as the americans do. so it is a matter of who will actually take the 1st step. and many analysts have spoken to here say both sides have very high lists of demands. and of course, there's also a lot of opposition to this deal, not only within both united states and iran, but also in the international community. we know that the israeli foreign minister is currently in the u. k. he's going to reading with his british counterpart and then he will move on to france on tuesday. there is a voice from that side of the board as well. that is very much against this the
2:13 pm
years really say that around nuclear program is not transparent and it is a threat. the radians, say they have a right to a nuclear peaceful nuclear program, and they will continue to make advances and the they will continue to work with the i. e a. but of course, in a limited capacity and the director general of the i a who was in teheran just last week, said that there is elements of the program that are no longer transparent to the agency. and that is a cause for serious concern to them. okay, a tough task ahead for all sides. they're dorsey jabari, bring us up to date from vienna. thank you. doretha. lots more still ahead here on al jazeera schools and uganda are set to reopen soon, but there are fears. some students may not go back to the classroom, they'll explain why plus more on the tributes to virgil ablow, the acclaimed men's wear designer from believe it's all and finds are off of white, who died at the age of 41. ah,
