7:02 pm
you're raxon a 100 booster shot, you're protected from severe illness and death. the us centers for disease control is recommending americans choose the 5 on the journal vaccines instead of johnson and johnson's. it says the single shot is less effective, and in rare cases can lead to federal blood clotting. meanwhile, south africa says it will join aid around $2000000.00 doses of the change i vaccine to other african countries over the course of next year. or let's bring in my can, who joins us live now from washington. they say hello there mike, 1st. well, what's the current situation with cause it across the us at the moment? well, it's a very big situation. indeed, the rates of infection are continuing to mount at an amazing rate that mo, with the past month alone, there's been a 40 percent increase in cases of corona virus. some 120000 people are being infected. each day,
7:03 pm
the death toll round $1300.00 american citizens dying each day from the virus. so a very, very big situation. this surge being driven by a combination of the delta variant which has been in place for a period of time. and the army kron, which is now being identified in a large number of us states. and in new york, for example, it appears to be primarily responsible for a massive surgeon infections there in new york city, there's been a 3 times increase in rates of infection over the past 3 days. it's tripling every 3 days at this particular stage. so a massive point of concern to public health experts, particularly with the amount of travel that's likely to happen over the coming holiday period. certainly some staggering numbers them, mike and as we mentioned in the graphic, the cdc is recommending pfizer over medina because of concerns with johnson and jumps. and why the change now?
7:04 pm
well, a committee of experts has been continuing to review the impact of the various vaccines over a period of time. they have now recommended the cdc that they initial findings show that johnson and johnson is less effective in combating the virus than the other 2 vaccines that are available widely to americans. they do not. and this i my stress, they do not say that it is not effective. they say it is not as effective. there is also some, some limited health concerns from the j and j, particularly among women. or the committee says that more than 50 women have a reported bad side effects after taking the jane j vaccine. at least 9 of them have subsequently died. but the point simply is, is that in a country like the u. s, there is a large range of vaccines available at the 3 bro. primary vaccines are all
7:05 pm
available in most areas. despite this, there are still some 40 percent of americans who are not vaccinated. this has been isolated as the president, as the major cause for the spread of infection or the president biden, also pointing out along with his health experts as that the booster shot of in any of the vaccines increases not only the resistance to the virus, but also its impact on the human body, those who've taken a booster shot in particular showing far less impact on their health. and then that those who have not. so all these factors coming together. but the greatest concern in the u. s. at present is that vast amount of americans who remain and vaccinated despite this mounting surge in the infection rate in day. thank you very much for that update. mike hannah, life ross in washington, d. c. for many miller now has more on the impact of the army. kron variant from johannesburg, explodes in south africa,
7:06 pm
saying that while they do recognize global daughter, that this recommendation may be premature in that south african daughter shows no adverse effects based on studies in south africa. we're currently health workers are taking part in a study around a booster shot of the j and j vaccine. and they say that we know adverse effects and there aren't any alarming signals to indicate that perhaps they should put j and j on hold. in fact, health expert to say that in the coming days, they may make an announcement around allowing booster shots of join j and j to the general public. they've also said they've always known that there are certain risks around vaccines, not just j, a j, specifically blood clots, but these are very rare. and that essentially the benefits of the vaccine, even that one shot of j j outweighs the risk. and so still urging people to get back to native, even with j and j, while america, the cdc,
7:07 pm
specifically may be saying, let's rather look at an alternative instead of using j n j. so for the moment, south african saying, or experts, health authority saying that they are confident the daughter they haven't had and will continue using the back vaccine in the country to europe now in france is banned non essential, travel from the u. k. for anyone who is into french citizen or resident, natasha, butler has more from parents, pull the french government's decision to pan, all non essential travel between france, me, u. k. from saturday has caused a lot of disruption and disappointment for people in both countries who are hoping to spend some of the holiday season with family and friends. so lot of people have had to cancel their trips. others have been scrambling to try and get a plane or a train before those restrictions come into force. and we've been speaking to some of them here at the cross channel train terminal in paris. lot,
