6:03 pm
a lateral flow test. every secondary school in the u. k is going to be having to do that, but also they are going to have to wear mosques for an undisclosed period of time while they're at school. it's basically the one change that the government has made to the rules and regulations in england over the holiday period. johnson has just come out and said that the mixture of meshes that the, that england has in place all the right ones. and the government is going to be sticking with them. essentially, he took a gamble just before christmas and then again, just before new year, not to heights in the restriction is not to make the most, most of in england is in a kind of system of measures called plan b, which doesn't really amount to much more than wearing mosque on public transport and in shops and also working from home when you can. other parts of the u. k. have
6:04 pm
gone much further than that, but england with forest johnson in charge chose a different path and it's a gamble that you have to say was risky. one, because you have surging numbers of infections. you have 12000 people, at least in hospital with covert at the moment in the u. k. the pressure that's being put on the n h s national health service. he's testing it severely. it's probably too late for borrow johnson to backtrack. now, he is going to have to write it out. it will say, how the following weeks and months or say that rory, tell us a little bit more about what's happening across europe in terms of the corona virus and the infections. what in france there were some new measures announced just before new year that we're sure to come into place on january the 3rd. so that is now happening and they involve limitations on the number of people that can
6:05 pm
gather indoors. 2000 people indoors, 5000 people outdoors. amanda tree working at home rule for 3 days a week for anyone that can. and also this measure that it's being put through parliament for the moment to tighten up the health path. is that a use to get into restaurants, etc? what has been the case up until well, when the new law goes through this re, legislation goes through is that you can get into a restaurant by showing either you've been vaccinated enough or that you have a negative kind of a test. they're going to change that probably so that it is now just about vaccination. will be a vaccination path in the netherlands at the moment. so which is an outlier in the you pretty much at the moment being quite tightly locked out. it went into a locked down on the 19th of december. there were protests yesterday that ended up
6:06 pm
with clashes with broad police and c locked down protests and the government at the moment looking into whether they will allow school kids to go back house sometime next week. quite extraordinary saying thank you very much for for that update. we're a challenge live for us in london. passengers on a cruise ship in portugal have december daft to being stuck on board for days following the code of dante outbreak. the german cruise operated cancelled its voyage after $52.00 cases were confirmed among the crew. on wednesday, another 12 people have tested positive sins. well the full 1000 people were on board the ship. passengers were allowed to leave after testing negatives to india now, which is starting a campaign to vaccinate 15 to 18 year olds against coven. 19 the drive comes as omicron infections are rising. several regions have introduced restrictions and a night time curfew has been imposed in the capital, new deli schools and public places there. and in other states have closed happening
6:07 pm
. mitchell has more from a vaccination center in the capital. and with that, another teenager has gotten their job with the vaccination center in new delhi, which is dedicated to inoculating teenagers between 315 to 18 year old. that the age group that started getting that it's a huge bracket, a population of about 70000000, a big expansion for in just vaccination drive. and a big relief of parents and students who had a particularly tough, fun damage. fools in india have been the 1st shot and last to open. in fact, as we speak, many schools were closed again. over $900.00 cases started searching. as of now, the population is only getting cool vaccine, which is it to job engine made vaccine, given 28 days a box. i have a lot of restrictions on my phone. remember, so me to for the goal with the goal properly. so i didn't go with my friends and
6:08 pm
get to watch movies in the hall. so yeah, i'm excited to go to my goal is to i didn't think there was any point waiting. we discuss it with the couple of doctors as well. and they would've been in that we could get it done as soon as possible. and it's not just children starting next week. health day walkers and many people about 60 who have underlying health conditions will be eligible for booster shots. now as we speak, india is seeing a massive surge in over 900 cases, largely fueled by the army on various the hardest hit cities are mom by in the financial capital, which saw restrictions being tightened this weekend. new delhi has also seen cases such positivity rate is close to 5 percent. and as of now, schools, gyms and movie theaters are shot and restrictions have been placed on restaurants and public transport. the government says the hospitalized zation, those remain low, and that cases have so far been myers and them to magic. they say they will look at
6:09 pm
these metrics, hospitalization, and death to decide if new restrictions ought to be placed. while new restrictions had started in the philippine capital is daily cases continue to rise day in person classes, contacts, sports and life performances are banned. capacity limits have also been lowered to restaurants and businesses. as barnaby low reports from manila, philippines, capital region metro, manila is back to strictly quarantine levels. after cases of corporate 19 spike over the holidays. so from alert level 2, it's been raised to alert level 3. what this primarily means is that goals, age, 17 and under. and those who are 60 years old and older are not allowed to leave their homes except for outdoor exercise or to go out and buy essential goods and access essential services. now there are discussions among local authorities about also restricting the movement of unvaccinated individuals. what,
6:10 pm
what's clear right now is that businesses are allowed to operate, but at the limited capacity, for example, restaurants are only allowed to accept customers at 30 percent there in lord capacity and at 50 percent, their outdoor capacity businesses of only started to recover after the government east restrictions back in november. it is of course a huge blow to to the business because for a monday, a, it is usually a full house at lunch. and on this is only the 1st day of a alert devil 3. and we already have mp tables for lunch. now over the weekend health department officials also announced the detection of more on record cases, a number of which were local cases. which means that these patients had no prior travel history. and they said that this means that there is high probability of
6:11 pm
local transmission that felt secretary francisco. lucas said that it is safe to assume that the new virus variance is already circulating in local communities. encourage people to stay at home as much as possible and get back to needed. the philippines vaccination rate remains below 50 percent. okay, let's bring in doctor krishna coma. he's the director at the global health innovations center and joins us from north carolina. thanks for being on the program, dr. cases of only krona now surging across the globe, and some medical professionals are even recommending double masking. tell us a little bit about that. do you think it's necessary? yeah, we do know that the ohm icon variant is highly transmissible, much more so than the prior variance that we were dealing with. which means we have to be that much more careful about ventilation and masking. now we do have a higher ability to access high quality and high filtration mask like k 95 k n
6:12 pm
95 or k f. 94 types of maps. if not, then we can use surgical math or if the only thing available or clock mass, then certainly multiple layer cloth mass are adequate, but not anywhere near as good as some of the other high quality mass that are available. so because of the high transmit ability of oma crime, it really matters the type of mass that everybody is wearing. now, i guess a lot of people opt for the kaufman because they try to do the right thing by the environment and reuse it. but what you're actually saying is that we need to use these disposable surgical masks in the, in 94 in the life. is that right? if at all possible, the higher quality mask is the one to use. and there are now ways to recycle those types of mass as well, if we want to be environmentally conscious. so it is going to make a difference, especially over the coming 4 to 6 weeks where we're seeing tremendous uptake in cases of omicron variant to make sure that the right and best getting master or
6:13 pm
what we're all using. dr. the army, chrome very and has only been around for about what 4 to 6 weeks outside of south africa. do we need more dr. about it and just how easily it spreads to make these informed decision? yeah. oh my god has probably been around since mid october. or so, and is now likely the dominant strain in almost every country around the world. we now have pretty good data from not just south africa, but also parts of europe and in the u. s. and what we are seeing pretty consistently is that it has a much higher rate of transmits ability. there does seem to be a trend that it causes less severe disease, but that's not born out fully yet. but we do know that with then level of rises that we're seeing in cases, it's much more likely that even with a small percent of people becoming ill, we're going to overwhelm many health systems around the world. if we don't take
6:14 pm
more aggressive measures, we spoke to our correspondent worried challenge in london at the top of the bulletin. he was saying that many parents are getting ready for the children to start school. what would be your advice or recommendations to parents ahead of the new school term? yeah, my own to kids went back to school today. and i think it is important to make sure that we can safely keep kids learning in person in school, if at all possible. and i think what rory share it in terms of making sure that everybody tests, if they have access to tests before going back to school is very important. making sure that everybody in that school masks as much as possible and to increase the rates of vaccinations to make sure all of the adults in those school settings are vaccinated. and as many children that are now eligible in their local setting, also get vaccinated as soon as possible. i don't think i'm alone in asking this, and i've asked a few medical professionals when are we going to come out?
6:15 pm
the other side of it will mosques and tests and vaccinations be part of life for the foreseeable future? yeah, that's a good question. i think that's the question of the year going into 2022. i'm optimistic that we can really turn the corner on the acute phase of this pandemic over the coming 12 months. but that doesn't mean that cobit is going away forever. it means that we will find a much more feasible way to live with cobit going forward when it becomes endemic, which means that we can have better approaches to public health. we can also have better access to testing to treatments and make sure that we increase the rate the vaccination significantly, especially in those parts of the world that are currently struggling with their rates of vaccination. while we appreciate your insights, as always, thank you very much, dr. chris nor would a coma, the director, the global health innovation center. appreciate your time on this news. our thank you by the more ahead,

6:21 pm
prime minister of the lamb, duke announced he was tapping down from his position. what amount was it? despite my efforts to achieve the necessary consensus to be able to deliver to our people on the promise of peace, justice and no bloodshed that did not happened during the past few days, i met with all the civilian and military officials of the transitional council. to explain and put the put shortage and historic responsibility in front of them. and following what i stated, i have decided to return to you on what you entrusted me with. sure. and i announced my resignation from the post of prime minister 30 at the lamb duke emerged as leader in 2019 after the overthrow of to dance authoritarian president amaral bush here. the country's main civil in coalition. the forces of freedom and change saw him duke as the man to help sudan transition from dictatorship to democracy. he had previously worked in the ministry of finance before taking up top
6:22 pm
jobs in the african development fund and serving as the deputy commissioner of the you and economic commission for africa. as prime minister ham duck oversaw a severe financial crisis during which inflation stored beyond 400 per cent. but he still managed to end the civil conflict in various parts of the country with the uber peace agreement of october 2020. he also successfully lobbied the u. s. and the world bank to remove the down from the list of sponsors of terrorism and convinced global financial institutions to provide debt relief and economic aid. but in october, this year, the military led by abdel for to help her hon. thanks a take over placing prime minister ham doke under house arrest and putting members of his cabinet, imprison a month later, duck was released and reinstated, after international condemnation of the coo, he then find a deal to form a government of technocrats sidelining political groups. but many for denise felt
6:23 pm
he had betrayed the revolution. his removal as far as they're concerned, the last fig leaf that was covering this regime and what remains is a full fledged military military dictatorship. so i think the international community will now will likely increase is pressure on the military regime with the hope of heating the demands of the city streets and, and installing a pull civilian rule demonstrations against the military and the deal have signed with them. have led to the killings of dozens of protesters by police insecurity. forces. ham duke has been unable to stop the violence or install a government that would remove military interference. and now it seems he is left with no choice but to concede defeat and resign. he but morgan august era. alright, let's go live now to mohammed valley who's in caught soon. hello there mohammed, well handled resignation, was expected as we heard in the package. what has been the reaction to the moon?
6:24 pm
we know that the resistance committees have expressed their non concern about the ignition of the primary sob, the lamb duke. they said it has nothing to do with the process of revolt against the military and the program of protests. they are going to stage a major protest tomorrow, the beginning they said it will be only an on demand, but now it is going to spread across cult to him. the other committees, and i think that they will participate in this nationwide protest. it has, it has not been shuttled before, but this is a fine for them of you know, moment and they say they are gaining. they said that is a nation of primary top. the handbook only strengthens their staff and shows that they are on the right path. they have called on this with the needs to joined the vault and the protest. some of them were even lukewarm about the continuation of
6:25 pm
the protest. they said that a chance should be given a 2nd charles should should have been given to the duke. this is that this is a position during the last couple of weeks. they said, handbook in his political agreement with the military could have been given a chance to find a solution for the, the issues of sudan. but now all the, the qualities are united and they are even hoping that the other political entities in the country will join them because there are no other options. according to them they, they, they, they have always been adopting this very radical stuff. no negotiations, no compromise. the only solution for sedan is the complete withdrawal of the military from power and allowing civilians to rule the country on the political level, the other, the other entities, the, the, the national suffering council, the ruling constantly meeting. it has been meeting for
6:26 pm
a few hours now. no announcement has yet been issued. so that could mean that the meeting has not yet ended. also, the head of the counselor of the photographer hahn is expected to deliver an address to the nation tonight during the next few hours. so more official reaction is expected to about this issue, which may really means that sedan is now facing only 2 options, either a continuation of protest, more bloodshed, more people being killed, or they sit around the negotiation table and try to find a solution. but that is a long process, because at least at least at the beginning, there should be a replacement for prime minister in the handbook. there should be a government and it's not clear who will be the choice. they are the need a man who can at the same time reconcile the sudanese, which is a very difficult prospect twice now. and also talk to the international community, be able to bring more concessions or more help from the outside world. so that the,
6:27 pm
the, the economy could, could be better so that the country could get out of the impulse. mad. he spoke briefly, then about general abdel father albert hon. what impact will hum dogs resignation have on his ladyship and does it give him more validity? well emit analysts talking about the fact that the handbook has been used by general lab to photography behind as a fig leaf. he, he's been use of the cover for what everybody says was a military court against democracy or against the process. the democrats process is a country, so he was really helpful for the military to show that they have a assemblage of you know legitimacy because they are still in the kind of partnership with the civil is represented in abdulla handbook and a few others who remained in the government was not being housed during the call. right now. the military have no such cover to use to
6:28 pm
legitimize the course. so they are in a more difficult condition right now. and that's probably explains the meetings today, the long, long meetings that are taking place right now. and the urgency of finding a convincing reply from somebody replacement, somebody who will be likable. acosta than somebody who could replace handbook. and that will give them again, a kind of cover of legitimacy. ok, well thank you very much for that update. keep us updated as to how things progress . mohammed val live, press ok, is a fire at south africans parliament in cape town, which has flared up again. you can say these live pictures here are firefighters tackling the blaze on sunday. fi got the national assembly where parliamentarian sit. extensive damage was caused to the building with parts of the roof caving in. yes, today, a man has been arrested in connection with that fire. the cause of this new blaze

6:30 pm
during tuesday, west of all that is a quieter looking picture. but what's being brought down behind it after living a bit more flooding enough, the emirates or man is this strong wind. it's the shambles normally. and it blows quite often for days on end in the winter. if you get it the wrong time, the it could be very sandy because it's been raining in iraq. the origin of this wind probably going to be a clear one. but you feel in the cold that a high temperature of 17 and q 8. and 60 in demand be lucky to see 23 though harder to get a feel that way at all. it laughs into wednesday, a more realistic 17 absolute best in there. ha, capital cutter. the picture in turkey is recall, a quiet one, considering what we've had recently in the north, just a few showers around the south, around syria and lebanon. egypt looks fine. and in iran, just a few showers. it could to that to be a snow though. not actually interrupt. ah,

a right of passage in preserve to the generation michael, he was laying down. there was claiming she was helpless. the woman who after indoors as go through cycle of pain, for what fact my name needs to women affect my f g m. and those re shaping perception. do you think people will abandon the eventually better take al jazeera, corresponding the con, a mineral central to the quest for clean energy? a key ingredient for the production of electric car batteries, cobalt extracting it is dangerous, but profitable with global demand set to sky rocket. people in power investigates, claims that industrial mines extracting the precious material, needed for cleaner energy, or in fact, poisoning the environment with dire health consequences for those living in their shadow. the cost of cobalt people in power on i'm just 0.
6:32 pm
ah ah. hello, you're working out here. i'm emily angland. reminder of our top stories this, our indian starting a campaign to vaccinate teenagers against coven. 19 dr. comes, is all meconium fictions arising. several regions have introduced restrictions including a nighttime curfew in the capital, and usually yemen through the fight is say, live has seized the united arab emirates ship off the yamani port city of hotel, the rebels to say the vessel was carrying military supplies. the satellite coalition says it was a medical equipment on board saddam's prime minister of dela hm doke has resigned
6:33 pm
at less than 2 months after he signed a deal with the military following a qu, i'm dog failed to form a government. he said more talks unaided. if the country is to move towards civilian role, returning to the stores in a panoramic now and in china to senior communist party officials have been removed from their post as the city of shyanne russell's with the code 19 outbreak. officials say the move is part of an effort to strengthen the work of epidemic prevention and control. 13000000 people in shyanne have been under locked down to 2 weeks. 60 new infections were recorded there on monday. well then 1600 cases have been identified in that city since early december. katrina, you has more than the story from by james chinese authorities had confirmed that they were to district level senior official fact from the city of she and for the mishandling of the current outbreak. that according to a government statement,
6:34 pm
they were responsible for a lax approach to inspections and testing and in and coordinated approach which hindered contact tracing. now this follows the announcement last month that $26.00 officials from that same city were punished for not doing enough to prevent the current outbreak. now, this is unsurprising since the beginning of the pandemic 2 years ago. whenever there has been a significant flare up of case numbers, the have been officials who have been held responsible and either punished or fired from the purse. now this goes to show how serious beijing is taking it 0 tolerance approach to the core of iris. even now t is on and it also is an example of what paging is trying to do to ease frustrations due to the inconveniences caused by these outbreaks. the city of she, 13000000 people, is the population. all of them now are under severe lockdown, unable to even leave their homes. and this lockdown is entering its 3rd week now.
6:35 pm
and there have been many complaints that because of this locked on, many residents are not able to access fresh food or other daily necessities. i was unclear so far how long this locked on will continue. but authorities that under extreme pressure to get the case numbers down before the beginning of the beijing winter olympics in february. so far since the beginning of december, that have been in total more than $1600.00 cases. they're covered cases of the delta variant. and the latest figure reported on monday was 60 cases added to that number. the 8th round of talks on the iran nuclear deal, i resuming on monday in vienna. they ain't to revive the 2015 agreement with world powers around foreign ministry spokesman says western nations have realized that they must back down from maximal demands. dalso jabari has been following developments from vienna. this week could be one of the most important weeks, and that is because the talks until now i've been dealing about what the talks will
6:36 pm
be about. they were talking about the agenda. now there seems to be a agreement of some kind about what they're going to discuss. there are still hurdles and there have been solutions before us for all sides, mainly the americans and the rainiest were at the heart of this dispute about how they can proceed and overcome those hurdles this week. we're expecting to find out whether or not that can actually happen. the iranians have said that they want the u. s. sanction lifted since the americans left the deal in 2018 and impose a series of strict sanctions on her aunt oil and banking sectors. the rate, the americans for their part have said that the ranges have to go back into full compliance since 2019 they started reducing their commitments to the nuclear deal. and further advanced their nuclear program. there seems to be incentive from all sites to decide whether or not this deal can be salvage. this week, the coming talks will be the most serious, since the negotiations began in april of last year. and that is because the,
6:37 pm
a dispute mechanism was triggered by the european signatories to the deal. that is germany, france, and you pay in january of 2020. so this has been going on for a very long time. it seems it's now this week that will decide whether or not the parties involved will be able to come to some kind of an agreement about whether or not they can revive this 2015 nuclear deal. china france, the u. s. and the u. k. have pledged to ensure and nuclear war is never fought. the 5 nuclear armed countries released to joint statement vowing to prevent the further spread of atomic weapons. the country say it's a war that cannot be won and should never be fought. the new york stock exchange has opened for trading for the 1st time. this year. all of america's main stock index is financed at 2021 with the rep who gain despite

6:39 pm
