a sooner or later, we're going to see cases of this new varied here in the united states will have to face this flu threat just so we faced those that come before us announced restrictions last week for travelers from 7 countries. plus south africa were army crime was 1st attacked. it biden's also not ruling out new restrictions depending on the degree of army cross spread. however, he insist for now there will be no new locked outs. cases of ami cried have already been reported in canada. so the united states travel restrictions that took effect on monday may be too late. the travel bands are very much a knee jerk reaction. we're behind the curve. i mean, this variant has been out for probably several weeks when there's a cluster of cases. the bands come in and, and now we know that it's in more than a dozen countries drug companies are already exploring adjusting boosters to combat
2:04 am
the new variant. we believe these various highly pictures we need to get more data from these, but it seems to be much more pictures and best buy was across is core to much drug manufacturers like madonna and pfizer, have made billions from the sale of coven vaccines, vaccines. the us says is sharing with the world, even as criticism of vaccine inequality persists. we ship for free war 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. the full extent of the threat army crumb poses is not yet know. that's why president biden's covered response team is drawing up a longer term strategy. expected to be released later this week. kimberly,
2:05 am
how can al jazeera the white house, wiley, mac, that is chief strategy officer for population health at the university of washington. he joins us via skype from seattle to talk more about this. thanks very much for being with us. let me ask you, 1st of all about the travel bands that have been placed by a various countries around the world. there's been a lot of criticism that they don't, they're not really going to make much difference in terms of containing the spread of this new variant. what's your view on that? that's very true that it by you couple of weeks of time. that's it. so you can prepare yourself, but historically we've known over and over again that they will not stop escalation of the virus. and it's already in many countries right now, it's a matter of detecting it. and, and as far as the, the, the need to get a vaccine a for this, and whether the current vaccines will be, i will be able to, to adequately tackle this new variant. what's your view on that?
2:06 am
so we never seen effectiveness is coming down with every new variant that we, we have found. so i estimate that it will go down a little bit with, but it will never go down to 0. it would be highly, still, highly effective against hospitalization and mortality less so i guess infection. so yes, that recommendation should be go and get you the vaccine and you need to get a booster if you have received your vaccination 6 months, your 2nd door 6 months ago. i would just want to pick up on the comments that we had a w i chose i made earlier um on monday that said no one is safe until were all safe . is that? um, is that a? is that what's on the heart of all of this that and unless some people in the poor countries where the vaccination rate is very low, unless that is the address we're gonna keep getting these new variance. that's very true and we're not safe here in the united states and invited rich country unless
2:07 am
everybody else in the world is safe. and we need to remember this virus only mutates when it is inside the human body when it's infecting somebody. so the only way to stop mutation and to stop the spend down is to vaccinate the war and how other countries not only to give them vaccine because them was the logistics needles. for example, many companies have a shortage of needle, provide all the supplies that are needed to ensure everybody in this world gets the vaccine. as it wise, we will always see a wave after another wave. indeed, and this is nothing really new, is it? scientists have been saying this for months that unless more of the world is, is vaccinated, this is going to keep happening. do you think that the, the richer countries are, are, are getting the message on this now, or? i mean, is this, is this a turning point? you think? yes, yes, this one is a wake up call for everybody am. yes, you are very good. i,
2:08 am
the playbook has not changed since the beginning of this violence. we need to help each other with sort of the connected need to other countries to stop, to spread the virus everywhere else. otherwise, we will be in this position for a long time. good to get your thoughts on this alley looked at thanks very much for being was. thank you. now, iran says it is optimistic off the 1st day of resume talks in vienna to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal. representatives from russia, china, germany, france, and the u. k met with iranian officials, the u. s. is there, but only holding talks indirectly. iran one sanctions against the lifted in return for limits on his nuclear program. but i've got a, my gosh, i think it's a great achievement. the, all of them in the countries of the people plus one have accepted the islamic republic rightful demand and agreed that the issue concern the legal sanction of the united states against people must be 1st be putting focus in,

2:10 am
of the security of the countries. meaning that they are expecting iran and other programs, not just a nuclear program will also be brought up. that is of course, something the renew of said they will not do. and they said they were only here to discuss how the americans will lift their sanctions. that they've imposed on or on the deputy foreign minister has said they are on nuclear program and other programs as well as iran regional involvement is not for negotiations. but to, of course, the parties involved, including europeans, have said that these talks are not going to go on forever, that there needs to be some kind of resolution. as soon as possible. opening statements had begun in the trial of british socialized. elaine maxwell in new york, she's accused of enabling the crimes of late sex offender jeffrey epstein, who took his own life 2 years ago while awaiting trial, maxwell has pleaded not guilty to the charges. gabriel is on there, is covering the trial force outside the courtroom in new york. gabriel,

2:12 am
are several years of sex. abuse of this young woman in several different homes owned by epstein, that 14 year old girl is now an adult and she's one of 4 that is planning to testify. in terms of the defense, they say they're going to put on a very strong case. and they told the jury that this case is about memory manipulation and money. they say that these allegations are over 10 years old. busy and there's no way that these 4 alleged victims could possibly remember all the details. manipulation. they claim that the defense attorneys that the 4 girls will testify or when will testify. i've been manipulated. i scrupulous lawyers and even by media stories. and they say money that they are other shipments of millions of dollars from a victims a fund. and they say because they've received this money, their testimony is not credible. bottom line is the defense says that they plan to
2:13 am
put on a strong defense, and they claim that that this is just basically a maxwell is just being put it to be tried. because for epstein's crimes, bottom line is this trial will go on for about 6 weeks. we believe. and we have plans to have a lot of drama as it goes on. gabriel has on down life force in new york. thanks. k . i said i had on al jazeera celebrations in honduras as methodist opposition, candid jamara, castro claims victory and the presidential election. and on the right path, south korea's driverless cars take to the roads of the years in development. ah

years ago. but we barbados has been one of the cleans 16 realms countries where she is head of state. and there were demonstrations, but they were of enthusiasm and royalty. but for many, it was time to cut the umbilical cord with the monarchy by declaring barbados a republic. to wayne a bayesian as barbados ins call themselves cells, tiny, salty fruit that grows by the seaside, a specialty here. he agrees with the change. i feel as we are probably one of us is able to run the quote for, you know, it was the mit from decisions did read of any banner began to be on our own jasa. so yeah, i guess, guess audio, but others like 19 year old kashana says that the decision to break with the monarchy was imposed on them by the prime minister without consultation. it wasn't even as say that one day as you see if the properly and now was it, it is in fact more symbolic than anything else. a new president will have
