3:01 am
a high price to pay if there's any aggression against ukraine following the recent truth build up. hello, we begin with the latest on the covert, 19 pandemic, and the spread of the new on the crown variance. the world health organization is urging unvaccinated and vulnerable people to delay their travel to possible hotspots. it says blanket travel restrictions, one, curb. the spread of the variance. canada is expanding a ban on travelers from african nations to include egypt, nigeria and malawi. travelers from other countries now require a mandatory cove in 1900 chest. and brazil has become the 1st latin american country to report on the con cases. it's one of the worst cove in 19 affected countries with more than 600000 deaths. let's talk now with that. julio ponce, he is a ponce, he is an epidemiologist, and he joins us via skype now,
3:02 am
from sao paolo. so given how, how bad things were in brazil when the, when the a panoramic 1st for spread there more than a year ago. how well equipped is the country now to handle this new variant? and thank you for having me on the show. brazil has gone through several waves of co infection including waste and devastated entire cities like the capital of amazon. and now we also had situations where a variant that was 1st described in brazil, the gamma variance took over the original strain of the virus, brazil. as of now is one of the countries that is speeding up vaccinations is being faster than we 1st believed to be to be capable of doing. and we are now at around 76 percent of the population in our leader with 2 doses. but we also have
3:03 am
a lot of regional differences. so states in the southeast are closer to 80 percent . well, some states in the north are closer to 30 percent of people with the 2 doses of the vaccine. and the reports say that the, the 2 people who tested positive further on a chron variant have up to now displayed a mild symptoms. i know it's only 2 people, but what do you take from that? that is correct. they arrived in brazil on the 23rd. they were supposed to leave the country on the 25th, and that's when the virus was detected and sent for. genomic sequencing. reports from other countries have also shown that the article variant, especially people who have been vaccinated presents with milder symptoms. but there is also concern that it might be more transmissible. and that could be an issue in countries where there is an uptick of cases such as the netherlands or south africa, even that are seeing higher number of infections and consequently higher number of
3:04 am
deaths, especially in those who haven't taken a single dose or who are only partially vaccinated and how do you, how do you see that you know, because because the current president has been, has shown kind of a cavalier attitude about cov, 19 in the past. i what's your estimation of how the, the brazilian government will deal with this now? so far we have been very slow and we haven't taken the right measures to curb to spread the fires. so we have stopped flights from 6 african countries, but we haven't stopped from any of the european countries where are higher numbers of the current very, and have already been detected. the country still doesn't ask visitors to present a vaccination card. so of course we are getting an influx of vaccinated tourists and that could be a problem,
3:05 am
especially now that the end of the year parties are arriving the holidays. and there is some concern that come of all which usually happens around february, and march might be a hotspot for an vaccinated tourist coming into the country with no no type of selection at the borders for vaccination status. and that could represent an uptick in cases at that moment. good to talk you. judy ponce, joining staff from south paula figure are now on the kron cases of so far, been reported in the us. but health officials there are urging people to get boost of vaccines to protect against the mutation allen fisher. as more from washington the last couple of hours. brazil has confirmed that it now has cases of armor cronan. this might be a new variant, but the advice from the public health officials here in the united states is the same old thing that we're been hearing for more than a year. we're
3:06 am
a mask particularly, and doors keep your distance, wash your hands if you've been vaccinated, that's great. get the booster if you haven't, then get the vaccination as soon as possible. that is a concern that it will be here very soon. you remember in the early days of cobra, there was just one reported case in seattle. people thought, well it won't come here and it came and came quite significantly in the weeks following that. there is, of course, a travel band for south africa and 7 other countries in the southern part of the continent. but the world health organization has said as not gonna help, you're not going to be able to stop it spreading that way and simply won't be able to block it from coming to your country. so they're asking for countries to review those travel bands and saying that anything that they do should be based on evidence. and also after a risk assessment, some of the united states may come under pressure to start lifting the bond on southern africa sooner rather than later. dr. anthony folky says it could be
3:07 am
between 2 and 4 weeks before they get a full idea of just how different this omicron very it is. and whether or not the vaccines will work that of course, or bang is right up close to the christmas holiday here in the united states, which means thousands and thousands of people will be traveling by plane, by train and meeting in big family gatherings. that is a big concern for public health officials who still don't know the extent of this valiant. a scotland and the netherlands have confirmed the on the convent was in europe before south africa alerted the wild horse health organization last week. the dutch health authorities say they detected the grant in 2 samples from november 19th. scotlands 1st minister also says 9 cases reported. there are linked to a single event. on november 20th south africa alerted the w h o last week leading to countries banning travelers from southern africa. germany's incoming chancellor

3:09 am
a mandatory vaccine requirement for everyone who has not had one will have to have what he wants, the new parliament to vote on that. he is also in favor of reducing the length of time that a person's vaccine status actually will apply. so the moment in germany, it's a 12 month period. he wants the vaccine status of a person only to last 6 months, which is far shorter than what the e u has proposed recently of 9 months. are you going to is deploying troops across the border into the democratic republic of congo as a battles, an arm group that's off the air strikes against the allied democratic force is part of a joint operation with the congolese army. the group is based in eastern congo and its place, the legions to i so began to blame it for 3 bama tax income paula. earlier this month, malcolm webb has this update from nairobi. you gone to an army person announced to the military operation, began with strikes and artillery fire while you got them,
