8:02 pm
i'm a thunder. empathy reports now from barbara tar. latin america as a whole, has been one of the most affected regions by the pandemic. south america makes up for just 8 percent of the world's population, but it has accounted by may 2021 for over. a 3rd of all corona visor is related globally just gives you an idea of just how bad things have been here. especially during the 1st year of the damage and we have reported extensively on what happened across this region with bodies left on the streets and whether lack of oxygen for patients in a number of countries. and just how difficult the roll out of the vaccination campaign has been at the beginning with countries here struggling to get enough vaccines. but that has changed throughout most of 2021. this is the reason the most fascinating region in the world,
8:03 pm
overcoming europe with 63 percent of the population. why that, that, that, that happens. if you ask me all, would you still give you a number of reasons, but they all points through 2, in particular. first of all, this is a region that has been accustomed in the past. the 2 large and expansive vaccination campaigns, the, to the c diseases like yellow fevers. those have been quite successful. and people remembered that frances, further tighten covey 19 measures. after reporting more than a 100000 cases, the government dissolved people to work from home, at least 3 days a week. they'll be no curfew for new year's eve. children will return to school as planned on january, the 3rd and crecia has a low vaccination rate compared to the rest of europe. well, people have been turning out in the capital to make sure they're getting the jobs. and corrina savish,
8:04 pm
which has the latest from zagging to zagreb capitol. 3 so people are waiting in line to get vaccinated, but most of them are waiting to get for the booster. adults in general, crecia has one of the lowest oxidation rates in european union. only 55 percent of citizens are vaccinated. so creation government has a problem to convince citizens that vaccine is safe and efficient today increase shaw only or wrong. $4000.00 confirmed cases of probably 19 infection but the only 8 confirm cases of on the chrome infection. 11 more suspected cases of on the ground waiting to be confirmed. crecia was the 1st european country to bend all arrivals from south african countries. countries, gratian government, government, also administered florentine for all creation citizens who are certain from, from south african countries. so on is still not dominant. sorry, and of course 19 increase. shouldn't gratian government is trying to postpone?
8:05 pm
the revival of prime minister and minister held our respecting wave and high numbers by the end of january. so today, increase government prime minister means health thoughts, which scientists and management of hospitals, how to prepare, how to prepare health system for high numbers. and lots of patients. simon non clock is the head of division of biomedical sciences and biomedical engineering at the university of reading. he explains how the outbreak is different than last year . we are definitely not in the same place as we were 12 months ago. in the u. k. at least we actually have a much higher number of infections, but it's with a very which for some reason that appears to be less virulent, less able to cause disease, at least in younger people, be so far the ones who have been infected by but that reduction inability to the
8:06 pm
might be to in some or in title st. paul to the fact that we've had a large scale vaccination program. and we know that the vaccines reduce your risk of getting seriously ill with other variance. and it's perfectly reasonable to see that it's playing part with. i'm a chrome as well. so is that probably the main reason why we are in a rather different place to, to where we were a year ago. i thought he's got infection needs into all the populations and i'm really talking about people in the forty's up was not necessarily elderly people. then that situation might and i emphasize and some might change and that's what will have to be watched if it's not changing. if indeed it is relatively low level in terms of genetically in them, great. we can, i think start to list those restrictions that we already have in place. if not, then we may see the tightening. so it's a gamble when governments decide to do more than $100.00 wrangler refugees have
8:07 pm

8:11 pm
spoke to couple of them who said they still don't want to go home. they're still concerned, but they want to monitor what's going on across the board. so they want to make sure that everything is secure. nonetheless, it does seem to be a little bit quiet today. so i think everything in the boulder seems a little more settled in the town, me a wadi and i was bought a chain going across. so some semblance of normality returning india is government is frozen. the bank accounts of one of the world's best known catholic charities. it says the organization that was founded by mother teresa did not meet conditions on the local law. it's been accused of trying to force people to convert to christianity. the charity denies the allegations. hundreds of health care workers in india have joined an ongoing protest by resident doctors of government run hospitals. this comes as many were dragged and beaten by police on monday night. problem. ital has more from new delhi,

8:18 pm
partly to the story. so it's a very dangerous more recently memorial has spoken out against the discretion of critics under president vladimir putin o. outside court as elsewhere, there's little room for that. in today's russian, prosecutors accused memorial of organizing large scale media campaigns aimed at discrediting the russian or forty's china. what happened today was very sad, although it will be untrue to say we weren't ready for it. it was one of the unfortunately predictable outcomes of the present judicial system. of course, nothing is over with us. we will appeal and the maria will live on with the people because it's the people behind it serving this great cause. first and foremost, the work will continue the move against memorial caps a year that is seen authorities jail or outlaw individuals or groups. the criticize

8:20 pm
deprive women of their freedoms. people could not move around in afghanistan, women late without having a mad. i'm especially, you know, outside of the cover city or outside of their cities, whatever. there were we had to get my handling. but you know, but towards the end of the like, what's the, or in just before the ton of on arrived in afghanistan, all of this was, was really a lot more relaxed. and the real reason mainly was because most of these women don't have anybody to take as a matter, not a lot of these women don't have them. and their mom has, has actually, maybe some of them have died or the audio the parents went out of their families. so you know, they had to travel a bit harder to go and visit some family members, and they were doing it alone. so now this thing starting all over again is just that is just another way of, of putting restriction on women and, and for no,
8:21 pm
for no apparent reason. because you know, the, this is it, it's almost like, you know, when there is nothing else for the 21 to do then. oh, they don't want to do then pick it after the woman's cases. i don't understand which to tell you the truth. i really don't know what is going on and why is it that half of the in or the correlation of interest on all of the women or, or, or thieves and the tone about, or the thief catchers and or the police or whatever. and here we are. so why everything falls on the head of the woman? it's absolutely beyond me. i don't, i don't get and the woman, they're absolutely right. this is, this is partly to, to, to curb our, our, our freedom. iran says progress is being made. it talks to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal. the 8th round of negotiations resumed in vienna monday, around one sanctions to be lifted and return for limits on its nuclear program.
8:22 pm
those jabari in vienna with more there's certainly a sense that this could be the most critical round yet. since the european signatories to the nuclear deal triggered the dispute mechanism in january of this year. because the u. s. luster deal, and iran with reducing commitment to the nuclear agreement. and the russian ambassador to the talk says that this could possibly be the final round, the e u coordinator, who's hosting the talk said that time is of the essence of course, are going to have to be difficult decisions made in writing and washington for there to be a conclusion to these talk. and of course the reading delegation, who arrived in vienna on monday morning. and they are saying that they're here because they know that their talks are leading summer, otherwise they wouldn't be here to begin with. i spoke to the deputy foreign minister from iran, who is the head of the negotiating team from the iranian side. and he had the
8:23 pm
following to say about where things stand after the 1st they concluded very much in my opinion, it's been a good beginning all sides emphasize the importance of lifting sanctions. and the issue of verification and guarantees should be on the agenda. so based on this, it was a great the 1st issue this going to be on the agenda in this round is the issue of guarantees and verification. and then the working groups will continue their work in the area of lifting sanctions in the banking and financial sexes. the main issues iran has now and they're hoping that that will be one of the main things address this week in the 1st few days of the round is the selling of iranian oil on the international market. since the u. s. imposed sanctions on iran in november of 2018. the radians have only been able to sell their oil to 6 countries, which guy got special waivers from the americans. and they haven't been able to be paid for that because their banking sector is under also strict sanctions. and that
8:24 pm
is one of the main issues right now before that the iranians were selling nearly $3000000.00 barrels of oil per day. they were opec's, 4th largest producer, syrian state navia is reporting israeli forces of carried out and strike on a major fault in the city of the attack is not clear if anyone has been injured. the reports haven't been independently confirmed. it's the 2nd report to detroit. the strike in syria this month. huh. jump. june reports in serious major port, city of latasha, the sound of air strikes thunder in the distance as fireballs, light up the night sky. this is the result of israeli missiles, according to syrian state media. the syrian government also reports that residential buildings, a hospital shops and containers were all damaged in the attack. details that could
8:25 pm
not be independently verified. the port of the talk here is in the west of the country and handles most of serious imports. this is the 2nd reported israeli air strike there this month. the earlier attack happened on december 7th and also targeted the container facility. it was reported to be the 1st on the facility since the start of the war in syria in 2011. is missile strikes on the talk yet were larger than the previous ones. israel's military has not commented on either of the airstrikes but it has previously confirmed conducting raids against iranian targets inside syria. ma'am, a jim jones, a does either. a protest is being held in garza city in support of palestinian prisoners, palestinian factions condemned won't the cold continuous violations in his railey jails. they say prisoners are often beaten some ass detainees recently began

a hunger strike to rally against the abuses. the judge and the sanks trafficking trial of guy maxwell says she's concerned co 19 could stall proceedings. she's urging jurors to speed up deliberations to avoid the virus, which would delay a verdict. maxwell is accused of grooming teenagers for underage sanks with her light financier. geoffrey epstein, a private jets has crashed near san diego, california with no survivors, according to local authorities. reform say it took down a power line, leaving thousands of people without electricity, no fatalities or injuries were reported on the ground bite. the crash happening near a residential area that found the la mosque is facing a backlash in china, off the bay. jing said his satellites had to close encounters with its space stationary this year. the claims have not been verified, but begging,
8:27 pm
as complained to the un space agency uses of the why bo messaging platform of labeled space x satellites. a space junk companies in chile are turning plastic into products that have the same look and qualities as would the recycling method is so advance? it even uses types of plastic. they don't usually get recycled. our latin america editor lucille knew and reports from santiago and he defied fine, gave up her job as an executive secretary to become what she calls a transformer. making these mountains of plastic waste disappear is impossible. what at this small factory on the outskirts of santiago had fun and her partners transform it into wood, except that it only looks like it we are, but i thought on mighta recyclable plastic is everywhere and its properties even better than those of food. for example,
8:28 pm
can you believe that this plastic wood is more resistant? it doesn't chip or bend or allow micro organisms to contaminate her, and it won't swell because this waterproof has both up here. so no one up ready for that. we tested for our shells. we're going to see how strong this stuff is. not a scratch, no marks. the plastic waste is minced into minute particles and then melting before to turn it into these would like slabs. they're being used by n g o z for rollerball, boardwalks, or furniture. let's see what we've got here. this is a motor oil container, fabric softener chlorine, there's lots of that more and lots of little yogurt, liquid yogurt jars, tons of detergent, shampoo, hair conditioner, the sort of things people use every single day. but the problem is there's no way to make it disappear. i want to put in for him for what plastic doesn't
8:29 pm
disintegrate, not even in hundreds of years. i've been looking at multiple temp with those little did his plastic number 7 because because it has polyethylene and aluminum. nobody cycles this. it goes straight to the rubbish dumped on ocean the river. laura foundation produces echo wood out of waste. no one wants. they can picnic tables, desks, flowerpots, while teaching children in schools all over chile, the value of recycling thought is muslim in approval. this is more or less what a single person chose out a week, and she'll be in by children to put it in the box. what the pris it in and we could have it there schools and we transform it into this which recall eco vote. collection centers are being set up everywhere. but critic say this type of circular economy has a fundamental flaw, noble and it doesn't promote a fundamental change in our consumption happens if we continue generating the same
8:30 pm
amount of waste without changing the productive model that generates it. we're just kicking the ball forward perhaps. but there's one important advantage to the still fledgling industry made from waste. it should help reduce the need to cut down more trees yet another environmental casualty of our times. you see in human al jazeera santiago. ah, let's thank you through some of the headlines here now, just are now south america has become the most vaccinated continents in the world. 63 percent have been fully inoculated. governments are accelerating vaccine programs, as on the con cases surge. i found that on pnc with more now from boca tar.
