the world health organization has warned wealthy countries that rushing to administer booster vaccines. they could actually be prolonging the coven lengthening pandemic because large portions of the globe remain on vaccinated. this, as israel becomes the 1st country to announce, it will give a force, vaccine doses and new infections in the u. k. of past the 100000. for the 1st time since the pandemic began driven by the army on very, but a new study by imperial college in london has found the risk of on the con, causing a hospital stay, is 40 to 45 percent lower than with the del cut very well let's talk more about this with dp. good. the sunny was an apd ologist and senior lecturer queen mary university in london. she joins us lie from cambridge by skype . let him thank you so much for joining us here on al jazeera, as since on the conference became a parent or was identified in south africa. we've always been hearing, well, we just don't have enough data. the studies haven't been there. there hasn't been
12:33 am
enough time for us to get a clear idea of how it spreads and how deadly it could be. now that we do have this study from the u. k and also another study from south africa. what picture are you getting about the risks from on the chrome? so it's a very impressive piece of work. i mean, both of those studies. and what they show is that in the real world on the chrome does seem to be causing a lower rate of hospitalizations. and this doesn't appear to necessarily because it's a virus that's less severe because of some biological property. but because of the people that it's infecting, so it seems to cause re infections more than parents radiance like delta, which means that people who are getting infected a higher proportion of their have previous immunity which, which provides a good level of protection against severe disease. and that means the overall impact in terms of hospitalizations and the risk of hospitalization is lower for this way. and simply because of it's sort of infecting
12:34 am
a different demographic because of the way it can escape and unity much more than delta, it's more infecting people who have been infected before. that is so. so to just run that by me again, because obviously in a country like the u. k. there, there's generally speaking quarter high level of vaccination, certainly more than a south africa. so are you saying that this is, you know, has less of an impact because it is affecting people who, having had the vaccine, have more of an immunity anyway, or less likely to die from it. so it is a combination of it in infecting vaccinated or boost of people more. i want to see vaccines are highly effective. so the overall risk of vaccines is still reduced, but it's relative to delta. this made has an advantage in break to infections, and vaccines as one is in people who've been previously infected. so any one would previous immunity, which means that it's preference surely sort of spreading in groups with some level of prime unity which is protecting against severe disease. so the overall impact in terms of severity of this range is lower. if it were to spread and have
12:35 am
a similar population of delta, the imperial cities suggest that the impact might be similar in terms of severity, but it is infecting a different demographic and group of people. we had them some very interesting comments from the head of the w h o. effectively those and you mentioned names, but saying that wealthy countries focusing on on boosting and extra vaccinations in some case 4th bosis is what israel is, is talking about that actually that's not the way to fight omicron or the pandemic . what do you make of that argument? i think overall we need a vaccine class approach. i mean, i don't think it's possible to keep boosting people every 3 months. i mean, i'm sure there will be a new generation of vaccines, but it's not going to be really effective unless we slow down the transmission, the evolution of the vice as well. so we need a globally coordinated approach of suppression as well as better vaccine equity. and that isn't just means of donating, you know, millions of dozes to lower middle income countries. it means fatal waiver
12:36 am
technology transfer agreements. so we can get out of this of scar, city mindset and massively scale up domestic manufacturing in different countries. because, you know, this is now a case, the 3 doors vaccines are in many countries haven't even received single doors for the majority of their population. so we really, really need that sort of vaccine equity, which is going to be challenging, but needs to happen at very briefly. the eyes of the world are slightly on the u. k . because of the spread of all mcroy. and also, because for the 1st time since the sort of pandemic, we've seen a $100000.00 infections. no proper lock down has really been put in place some restrictions, but not much compared to other european standards. do you think more should be put in place? absolutely. i mean, ultimately the impact of this waiting will be determined by the rate of spread rather than a small reduction in severity. and with exponential spread, the fossil you act, the less pressure hospitals, and the more lives you save dp, good assignee epidemiologist than senior lecturer queen mary university here in

how's reports from london? there's been many proclaimed game changes in the medical fight back against corona virus. this is the latest. the u. s. made drug mole new peter the it was initially intended to treat the flu. it works by inserting errors into the genetic code of the virus, limiting its ability to multiply in the body. in practical terms, it's the 1st coded medicine that can be taken in pill form at home to help the most vulnerable avoid severe disease. and last month, the u. k became the 1st country to approve its use and we're working on a new national. non kane thank holding you'd be interested in taking current researches at the university of oxford, a testing it in more than 10000 volunteers who recently contracted covered 19 like 51 year old lin telling i had to take, i think for him one guy twice a day, so with a 12 hour gap over here to 5 days, and nothing special about medication,
12:39 am
literally just normal casuals that you take with water. so very straightforward. i had no side effects. there are already questions over the effectiveness of mole new peter thereafter. clinical trial results led the manufacturers to reduce the overall efficacy of the drug from 50 percent to 30 percent. if you look at the study, generally 30 percent is actually a very, very high level in terms of the, the benefits that we see on the large scale study. and that's what we want to replicate here as well. well, new period is one of several new home treatments for koby to be tested in what's being called the panoramic study. they're likely to include the pfizer produced packs lovin, it's a combination therapy based on old h i. v treatments the pfizer claims is up to 90 percent effective in preventing hospitalizations in high risk patients with half a 1000000 courses already on order here in the u. k. the focus for now is firmly

own modem. peer review, if you catch could be 19 early on and you treated early on, you might then not be able. ready to develop any severe symptoms and this means reduction in the hospital admissions and possibly taking off some of the pressure on the chair. so quite an important study. i think, mole new peter there, and drugs like it could prove valuable additions to a fast growing medical arsenal. jona whole al jazeera london rescue teams in me and lar are searching for at least 70 people missing after a landslide and a mine it hit while workers were digging for jade in northern catching. states sweeping them into a lake. so far, one person has been confirmed dead. the area is the center of me and mars, secretive jade industry. we're minor is often work in dangerous conditions and slides of calls, hundreds of deaths in recent years. survivors of a devastating storm in the philippines are desperate for food,

8th time. they won a trophy the national hockey league is confirmed, it won't be releasing players for next year's winter olympics in beijing. the announcement comes as the regular season a suffered major disruptions due to a surge in corona virus. cases of at least 50 games having to be postponed. league is concerned that a positive test in china could lead to a 21 days sent in quarantine. and h o players did not compete in 2018 olympics as well. i definitely feel for the guys who have missed numerous opportunities since it's not something we're the next year push in a couple months like these are you know, opportunities and experience of a lifetime. you don't get very many of us not. you might only get one you know, it just might happen to fall on a new window. and if that doesn't work out, which unfortunate earlier we're supposed to have sports broadcaster, michael carlson. he told us what the olympic competition will look like without
12:52 am
n h l players. it means they're going to have to dig around for players. the u. s. canada are in the same group. they would play each other, but there are and h all players from all of the major ice hockey countries, including russia, sweden, finland, germany. they have all qualified for the tournament. the russians are probably the best place because many of their good players play in the continental league. the continental league also has a lot of americans and canadian players, and there's a couple of americans to played on the national team yorker in finland. there are canadians all over russia playing. so they'll be able to take players from that. one thing we don't know is whether the n h l will allow players who on what they call to weigh contracts, who play in the minor leagues. what are under contract to n h l teams, whether they will be able to play. otherwise, the teams will probably be made up of those european players. other players from

the minor leagues in north america and college players, there will still be a canadian team in american team. a russian team all play go just be without that star power. and the stars have been told they'll be no coven 19 shut down. and that it's time to learn to live with the pandemic. as despite more than 80 players being out of action across the li, due to corona virus. lebron james with games earlier this season due to hope in 1000 protocols for 34 points for the lakers in this defeat against the phoenix on the lakers. 3rd street la things in their ankle during the 3rd quarter, but insists he will be fit for his teams. next game with a bunch of games and eighty's out you know much guys and protocol hey, coach is out. so how can we really fully assess where we have? no, we haven't been home. we haven't come in the last time, you know, we, you know, play the same online about the same rotation time on the bench. it's been
12:54 am
a long time. so if a team has 8 fit players, they're required to proceed with their game. teams are now allowed to sign one replacement for every player that has positive for coven 19. if a player has positive, he must spend a minimum of 10 days away from the team. or return to negative p. c. r. tests. bleak has had to postpone 7 games in the last week. at the embassy marquee christmas day games are still set to go ahead as plans. we've, of course, looked at all the options. but frankly, we're having trouble coming up with what the logic would be behind pausing right now. as we look through these cases, literally ripping through the country right now, putting aside the rest of the world. i, i think we're finding ourselves, we're, we sort of knew we were gonna get to for the past several months, and that is that this virus will not be eradicated. him. we're gonna have to learn
12:55 am
to live with it. and i think that's what we're experiencing in the league right now . i would just say to, in our community, really to everyone, at least based on the data, the n, b a has, the boosters are highly effective and we've strongly encouraging everyone to get them. in fact, in our league right now, we're out, you know, we're around 97 percent vaccinated, but we're up to about 65 percent of our players have been boosted and we're in active discussions with the player association to look for ways to get that number . even higher and australian open organizers say they still don't know if defending champion no back job, which will play at next month. grand slam. all players at the event must be vaccinated or have a medical exemption granted by an independent panel of doctor's job, which is targeting a record 21st mens grand slam title. the 34 year old hasn't publicly declared his vaccination status. ok, and that is all your sport for now. it's now back to barbara in london. far. thank
