8:02 pm
emergence of the highly mutated army crone vanya and under lions, just how pitiless and pre cut is ok, let's take a live now to washington d. c. where you as president joe biden is speaking at band, the new variant. after meeting with his chi that we're sponsoring, let's listen so many families getting together this nice kimmy after being a part last year and we have much to be grateful for as a nation. when i was elected, i said, i would always be honest with you. so today i want to take a few moments to talk about the new code. very 1st identified last week in southern africa is called the omni cron. it is it to their credit. the scientific community in south africa. quickly notified the world of the emergence of this do very this kind of transparency used to be encouraged and applauded because it increases our
8:03 pm
ability to respond quickly. any new threats. and that's exactly what we did. the very day the world health organization identified the new variant. i took immediate steps to restrict travel from countries in southern africa. the while we had that travel restrictions can slow the speed of omnicom. it cannot prevent it, but here's what it does. it gives us time gives us time to take more actions to move quicker to make sure people understand. you have to get your vaccine to have to get the shot. you have to get to get the booster if you're a sooner or later. we're going to see cases of this new very and here in the united states will have to face this new threat to so we face those that come before it today. there are 3 messages about the new variant that i want the american people to hear. first, this variant is a cause for concern, not a cause for panic. who have the best vaccine in the world, the best medicines,
8:04 pm
the best scientist. and we're learning more every single day, and we'll fight this very and with scientific and, and knowledgeable actions and speed, not chaos and confusion. do we have more tools today to fight the very end than we've ever had before? from vaccines to boosters, to vaccines for children, 5 years and older and much more. a year ago, america was floundering against the 1st barren of covey. we beat at variance significantly, and then we got hit by a far more powerful threat. the delivery. but we took action and now we're seeing does some delta come down? we'll fight them and look, we're going to fight and beat this new variant as well. we're learning more about this new varied every single day. and as we learn more, we're going to share that information with the american people candidly and promptly. second, the best protection i know you're tired, amy said,
8:05 pm
is the best protection against this new version or any of the of the various up here. but once we've been dealing with already, is getting fully vaccinated and getting a booster shot. most americans are fully vaccinated, but not yet boosted. if you're 18 years are over and got fully vaccinated before june, the 1st go get the booster shot today. they're free, and they're available at $80000.00 locations coast to coast. a fully vaccinated booster person is the most protected against coven. i do not wayne go get your booster if it's time for you to do so. and if you are not vaccinated, now's the time to get facts, they didn't take your children to be vaccinated. every child age 5 or older can get safe effective vaccines. now, while it will be a few weeks before we know everything we need to know about how strongly the
8:06 pm
existing vaccines protect against new variant, dr filed cheese with me today or our medical team. and believe that the vaccines will continue to provide a degree of protection against severe disease. and as additional protections, please wear your mask when you're indoors in public settings around other people. it protects you, it protects those around you. 3rd, in the event, hopefully unlikely that updated vaccinations or boosters are needed to respond to this new variant. we will accelerate their development and appointment with every available tool. i want to reiterate, doctor found she believes the current vaccines provide at least some protection against new variant and the booster strength and that protection significantly. we do not yet believe that additional measures will be needed. but so that we are prepared if needed. my team is already working with officials at pfizer and burn,
8:07 pm
and johnson and johnson, to develop contingency plans for vaccines or boosters if needed. and i will also direct the f d a the c d. c, to use the fastest process available without cutting any corners for safety to get such vaccines improved and on the market if needed. and we'll do that the same way, any modifications are needed, or current treatments need use to help those with get ill with the coven buyers. look, i'm on. i'm sperry, no effort. removing all road box to keep the american people safe. all of this is confusing to a lot of people, but if this confuse you do, let me close with this simple message. if you are vaccinated, but still worried about the new very get your booster. if you aren't vaccinated, get that shot. go get that 1st shot. my team at the white house provide me with
8:08 pm
daily updates this week, and thursday, i'll be putting forward a detail strategy outlying. how we're going to fight coven this winter? not with shut down. so log mo and more widespread vaccinations boosters, testing and more. i promised every american that there will be always be the latest vaccines available and the booster shots available them and for free and everywhere available. every single american free of charge. and i will keep that commitment, but we need to do more than vaccinate americans to beat the pandemic. we have to vaccinate the world as well. an american lady that if we ship for free, more vaccines, other countries than all other countries in the world combined over 275000000 vaccines to 110 countries. now we need the rest of the world to step up as well.
8:09 pm
let me be clear, not a single vaccine shout americans ever send to the rest of the world will ever come at the expense of any american. i will always make sure that our people are protected 1st, but vaccinate the world is just one more tool. and how we need to meet our moral obligations, americans and how to best protect americans as well. but does the variance and now the omni cron variant all emerged elsewhere in the world. so we can't lead up until the world is vaccinated. we're protecting americans by doing that as well as we continue this effort plus, remember where we stand. we are in a very different place as we enter the month of december, this month, compared war were last us last september, last christmas. last christmas to the one percent of american adults were vaccinated. this christmas, the number will be over 71 percent,
8:10 pm
including more than 86 percent of seniors last christmas, our children were at risk without a vaccine. this christmas we have safe and effective vaccines for children ages 5 and older, with more than 19000000 children and counting now vaccinate. last year, a majority of schools were closed this year. 99 percent of our schools are open. let me re, re once more. we also now have booster shots to provide extra protection. there are free and convenient. there is still time to get your 1st 2 shots, or your booster shot, or get your children vaccinated before christmas. all 3 are available can be done before christmas. if you and your family are fully vaccinated, you can celebrate the holidays much more safely and given where we were last year, that's a blessing. and none of us should take for granted, rejoined everything we can aspires, tracking it from every angle. and that's where we have to keep doing. that's how we
8:11 pm
reopen our country. that's how we, real when our businesses, that's how we re open our schools. that's how he, with the pandemic. we've generated a record job creation record, economic growth in this country. we've moved forward in the face of coven 19. we have moved forward in the face of the deliver. and we move forward now in the face, a omni crumb barrier as well. so thank you. god bless our troops, and i hope you all have. i'll be speaking before them, but a merry christmas as we approach it off questions. all right, let me call and nancy mover. thank you so much. i think that other countries will be reluctant to report variance or other strains given the travel band. yes, no i, i don't think so. i don't think that's what's gonna happen. and i want to again,
8:12 pm
the reason for the media travel man is there are significant number of cases unlike any other country or few around south africa in the world. we needed time to give people an opportunity to say, get that back to the nation now before it has, it's going to move around the world. and it is almost inevitable. there will be at some point that strained here in the united states on, but i don't, i don't think anyone is going to be reluctant to report. we have also moved to do more from, for example, we've provided more vaccines. as i said, then all other countries neural combined and we friday significant vaccines as well to south africa in that region. matter fact south africa doesn't need any more vaccine. they're having trouble getting out in the people's arms and the reluctance is there, but no, i don't think it's going to have that effect. alexis alexis,
8:13 pm
with alex reuters. yes, thank you so much. i wanted to ask if you had anything to 3 international panels for this area and what is being done if anything, internally, if the virus is very, it's already. well, there's a lot being done. i'm going to turn to dr. 40 to answer the last question, but what's been done, doc? thank you mr. prison. we already have in place when people come into the united states, they have to be tested before they get on and at the show vaccination or documentation . so even before only gone came in, we have a situation where we'll be able to test and talking about testing. for fortunately for us the p. c. r is that we mostly use would pick up this very unusual very, and that has a real large constellation of mutations. fortunately for us, that the p series that we do do pick it up and we're following
8:14 pm
extremely close with the medical community to code t. ok, any developments as it relates to how severe it is, how quickly you to how quickly it spreads. how dangerous is a center. we have more work to do in that area. and the wall street journal, i'm thinking if the president of the u. k. euro and a growing number of countries have confirmed cases of ami on are you considering additional travel restrictions on countries that are very has been detected into separately? you urged americans to wear masks and indoor public spaces, but many cities, including washington d. c. lifted mass mandates. are you calling on state local officials to reinstate mathematics? with regards to the last question, the answer is, i get encourage everyone to wear a mask from their indoors in a crowded circumstance like we are right now. unless you're eating or speaking in
8:15 pm
a microphone. and secondly, the degrees spread impacts on whether or not there's a need for any travel restriction, but that's not, i don't anticipate that at this point and we'll see, we'll see how that works. and so the other alex doesn't have a heart attack. i want to call him is it a ok? i see other alex and then mr. president, is this the new normal that american should expect? anticipating future potential variance. we expect to intermittent travel restrictions and potential drops in the stock market going forward. given any word, the reassurance that this will become the new normal and then for both you and dr.
8:16 pm
to dr. early on cbs that lock down. so those are off off the table for restraining it will be going forward. you said that will be part of your plan on thursday, but why are you taking out the cable move? that's your 1st question. first. the answer is, i expect this not to be the new normal. i expect the new normal to be. everyone ends up getting vaccinated booster shots, so we reduce the number of people who are protected to such a lower degree that we're not seeing the spread of these bars. now we may be seeing exactly what the elements of this particular strain are, but if for as i hope then it's not can be fundamentally different than in the past . and in terms of what was the 2nd part of the question about the table or why, why is that? well, because we're able to, if people are vaccinated and where they're mass, there's no need to lock. so my last question, yes, going on from,
8:17 pm
from the question of christmas, very coming up. huge amount of trouble. would you give any thought to domestic flights require and testable vaccine for going to get on the same way as i do friends? rational flights, or at this point that's not been recommended, i would very for my, the scientific community to give you a recommendation on how your kids to wait to be a factor sir. given the dr. katya says, the senior could already be here. you understand the point of charge of the restriction to give us time to get people to get protection to be vaccinated and get the booster. that's the reason for thank you also very, very much. i appreciate it. thank you. and i'm sure are see that was president joe biden, providing an update about the new variance of coven 19 on may crohn. let's go live to i want, has corresponding kimberly hallett, who's been covering developments. hello there. kimberly president bottom was trying to reassure americans that now is a time for concern,
8:18 pm
but not panic. what more did you have to say? the u. s. president really narrowed it down to 3 key messages in his address there to the american public. the 1st was that there really is no need for panic. the public health officials in the united states he believes have this under control and are using the tools already in place that have dealt with previous very and such has delta. the fact that there is science that is looking at this, that is mapping this further, that is understanding more and determining if there is a need for more boosters, potential that are more targeted in the future. what the us president, also underscored, is that the bass protection right now remains the same as it has been for months, and that is getting fully vaccinated. that means 2 of the injections as well as the booster, and there are tens of millions of americans who still have not done that. the
8:19 pm
president doubling down his message that this is the best protection. and finally, the president issuing a promise to the american public that if there is a need for a future type of booster shot or vaccination, but he is already implementing what he doesn't expect to have to use. but the fact that if it is necessary, there will be something new that is developed that already the scientists looking at that one other interesting point the president made is that he said he's not ruling out further travel restrictions. but at the same time doesn't see the need to implement them right now. and of course, given the fact that this is a new variant that has been identified, the us president last week put in place travel restrictions from south africa and 7 under other countries that remains in place, but no more are being added at this time. but again, the president not ruling out in the future if it's necessary. you heard there him speaking, he said, depending on the spread, so far,
8:20 pm
no cases detected in the united states. although the top infectious disease specialist of the found she's saying that it's possible it's already here. well, let's hope not. i thank you very much for the update to kimberly, how could live for us today say thank you. a rom says it's determined to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal, as talks resumed in vienna, representatives from russia, china, germany, france, and the u. k. a sitting down with iranian officials, the us is there, but only holding talks indirectly talk stalled. in june, after the election of a runs president abraham bracy, tehran, one sanctions to be lifted in return for limits on its nuclear program. china's president has promised african nations 1000000000 corona virus vaccines and increased economic assistance. a 2 day summit is underway in synagogue. china is africa's largest trading partner with $119000000000.00. the meeting takes place
8:21 pm
after a recent visit by us secretary of state to boost cooperation. nicholas hark is following the summons. it's something that's very important, not just for china, but for african country is also present virtually as the president of south africa, the head of the african union. and obviously the host president lucky solve and on everybody's mind. but not mentioned by name was the new variant of the coven. 19 ami kron and shooting pain addressed it had on very quickly. and his address said that a 1000000000 doses would be delivered of the farm vaccine to africa. and 600000000 of that will be donations. he also mentioned that there will be a creation of a chinese african research centers and manufacturing centers so that people here can have better access to, to vaccines and achieve that goal by the african union to have 60 percent of
8:22 pm
africans vaccinated against cove in 1900 like present serial room a post explained on this meeting. it is unjustified and unfair that so many people here on the african continent do not have access to those very important vaccines to the co founder jack josi has stamped down as c arm. he had faced her show internally to resign and survived, and the best to be asked him last year. he will be replaced by the chief technology officer. him in a statement on twitter. dorothy says it was finally time for me to leave. kristen salome has been following developments. san is live for us in new york. hello there, kristin. it's been a rocky fee for twitter. why? and dorothy stepping down now while c. o. jack dorothy released the statement saying that it was time for the company to move on. he's been at the helm s c o. off and on since founding the company back in
8:23 pm
2006. and he's been under pressure to go since last year from major stockholders and shareholders who thought that it was inappropriate, that he be at the helm of twitter while at the same time serving a ceo of another company square a digital payment company doors. he's also face some pressure from politicians in the united states after twitter band, former president, donald trump saying he was a national security risk after the january 6 capital riot that led to a lawsuit against twitter. but at the end of the day, i think the main issue here is that twitter stocks have been seen as under performing and with the news ceo in place there, even before the new ceo was named, there was a plan in place to try to increase revenues for the company, double revenues by 2023, which is a difficult task ahead. so
8:24 pm
a lot of pressure coming to bear and, and dorsey himself saying it's time to step aside. speaking of those financial elements, how is the market been responding? well, it's interesting, as soon as reports started to circulate that, dorsey might be stepping down. these were unconfirmed reports that were reported by the financial news network. cnbc, the stock shot right up more than 10 percent forcing nasdaq to close down trading. sometimes they do this when news as seen as pending or the stocks moving too quickly to let things calm down a bed. then the official announcement was released. since then, the stocks they're still trading higher, not quite as high as they were at that initial announcement, but all over technical stocks are up on the nasdaq today again, this news seen as positive for a company that's seen as under performing and recent years. thank you. for that
8:25 pm
update, kristen sloan, we live for us in new york, appreciate it. no been on the president has discussed his country's deepening economic crisis with cotton and mia. michelle owns holding talks while on his visit to doha. for the opening of the faith arab cub, he's also discuss lebanon's diplomatic feud with golf nations. saudi arabia withdrew its ambassador from beverage and band in ports from there last month. still long lebanon and crowns have been blocking roads in various cities in protest against worsening living conditions. there they have been accused of failing to provide a social safety net to the pool after we're moving subsidies. santa hata explains from bay roche. these young men say they've run out of options, and that's why they've returned to the streets, lebanon, the economy has all but collapsed. i know we are hungry, i'm buying make for our children, and that is a dream. we are living
8:26 pm
a life of humiliation. i read in there is no end in sight for the financial meltdown. the country needs international financial assistance, but politicians are not reforming. a state riddled with corruption also. now we don't know, we don't have the politicians are destroying us. they made us for this young man don't have the crisis is not new, but it's got worse because the government lifted its subsidies on essential goods due to a lack of foreign reserves. the fall out of the economic collapse has left 3 fourths of the population poor and united nations is warning of even worse conditions. if no solution are found. the local currency, the lira continues to lose its value against the dollar. it's affecting purchasing power, while a cash strapped state has so far failed to give the poor promised financial aid all the while inflation is climbing. i think i'll do it. a lot of the dollars exchange
8:27 pm
rates fluctuates every hour. that's why we don't put the prices on good side and since they are adjusted all the time, the crisis began in late. 2019 authorities use force to end a nation wide protest movement and thought about cabinet seats for more than a year. they form the government in september, but it hasn't met for 6 weeks now, because of new political divisions in lebanon. we are not like any other country where people are going to the stated things would change because we're not on the confronting a government. we going from the government, which is backed up with a very powerful militia. i've been saying i own and age images will last, but many worn growing poverty could change that mom, we don't have money to buy bread and medicine for our sick family members. we can't cope with the situation. many have lost faith in a political class blamed for ruining the economy after decades of corruption. but
8:28 pm
for now, there is little hope for change. the road to recovery appears blocked than a hood there. osha zita. they route for decades south driving cars have been counted as the future of road transport. but the road toward success has been paved with setbacks. however, in south korea's capital, it appears that vision may have finally arrived. alexander la shay reports these driverless revo taxis in sol sang. i'm don. district aren't a publicity stunt. they're part of the cities a $125000000.00 scheme for self driving cars. from tuesday they'll ferry passengers between the digital media city rail station, a nearby apartment and office buildings. charging passengers about $3.00 a trip. by the end of december, they'll be joined by several more driverless cars, as well as a bus to ease safety concerns. the mayor stepped in as the 1st official passenger
8:29 pm
holdings, or was it her role at the beginning? i felt a bit awkward and a little bit nervous. but soon the coupled of and started and change lane. i made a left turn and a right turn, very smooth. as i experienced, i believed it would be a good start to the commercial surface. it's a small step, but a large lead considering the difficulty of the research involved. the technology behind driverless cars is being sought after by many major technological companies. us based tesla, the market leader and electric cars is still several years away from completely removing drivers from the equation. its full self driving system is still being tested and requires operators to keep their hands on the wheel at all times. earlier in november, 1 of its cars crashed in california after a malfunction. but and so the outlook is more optimistic. tell you how the cars are no longer simply about moving around autonomy the vehicles have shifted the paradigm leading to disruptive innovation autonomous vehicles. prevent careless
8:30 pm
driving by humans minimizing social costs. early next year the city says it will add 10 driverless taxes to the gang. them district as part of the pilot project, 2nd faith. and if everything goes off without a hitch, the city government wants to grow itself driving fleet to more than 50 vehicles. in the next 5 years, alexander lurch al jazeera. ah, hello, are you watching out 0. these are the top stories, this alum you as president joe biden warranty, implement any additional restrictions to contain the new only cron variance. however, he warned, it'll be a few weeks before it's known how effective vaccine will be against the strain. this period is a cause for concern, not a cause for panic. who is the best vaccine in the world? the best medicines,
8:31 pm
the best scientist. and we're learning more every single day if needed. my team is already working with officials at pfizer and brenda.
