12:02 am
a europe regional director says the virus is quickly becoming the dominant variant in western europe and also spreading in the balkans. dominic cane begins our coverage from berlin on the face of us, a very bleak assessment. indeed, that's 50 percent of the population. depending on which numbers you go by and the you more than 400000000 people live here in the u. around 700000000 around the you, it's periphery countries and that sort of thing. so we're talking potentially hundreds of millions of people that this individual from the world health organization is saying might well find themselves falling foul of the arm across variant of the corona virus in the course of the next couple of months. remember, it's deep winter here, right? now, and so all those conditions which militates in favor of further transmission are in place, it's cold outside people tend to congregate together inside if they're not wearing appropriate masks as we were hearing from the w h o. in another part of
12:03 am
a statement made by the individual concerned that it's masking vaccination and that sort of thing in the absence of those. and it's very clear that the world health organization is making pretty difficult and dangerous suggestions here. hundreds of millions of people might find themselves as a se falling fall of on the kron in this deep winter phase of 2022. that's the really fundamental question here. right now has only crohn managed to dislodge. the delta vary the preceding particularly dangerous variance of covey that had been running right. what like wildfire across the continent, here in germany, the latest estimate suggests somewhere around 50 percent of all cases of ami chrome . but in other parts of the continent then army corners really taken hold and is starting to really push delta to one side. or meanwhile, in the u. s. the number of people admitted to hospital was coven 19 has reached
12:04 am
a record high news agency. reuter says there were 132646 people in wards on monday more than the previous high reached in january last year. my can and joins us for more on that at now. so i might just tell us how bad is the situation in the us right now? well, that figure people hospitalized is just increased to 140000. that is a record for any single day, even higher than during that massive peak that was experienced in january a year ago. so this is particularly disturbing when one reflects on the fact that infections are now at record. number's 750000 are recorded in the 24 hour period. and so this is particularly disturbing, given the fact that the hospitalization would generally follow on the infection rates by some 10 days. if what i'm saying is that the hospitalization rate is
12:05 am
likely to get even higher in the next few days or moving to new record levels. this of great concern to health authorities, given the massive strain that it is putting on hospitals, bearing in mind to add that hospitals are increasingly understaffed because health workers themselves are so coming particularly to the army kron variant of the virus . so this is in effect, a perfect storm with regard to what is happening in the nation's hospitals. as in fiction, rates and hospitalizations continue to rise. and mike, a u. s. senate committee has met here. the federal government take on how it's handling the pandemic. so what's come out of that well, there was a lot of criticism from senate members in terms of the federal government's response under the bite and administration, in particular, senators picked on the issue of the promise that the biden administration made off
12:06 am
a test being available to every household in the united states at now transpired in the senate, hearing that only 50000 of some 500000000 tests have now been bought by the federal government. so it's going to take days, weeks, possibly, even months before the administration makes good on. it's promised to provide testing to every us home. also questions from senators about the cdc, in particular, are the directors comments about quarantine? for example, some senators arguing there's be mixed messaging from the cdc, particularly with regard to the recommended 5 day quarantine period, which came into effect a week or so ago. a coming down from 10 days. but also the cdc giving mixed messages about whether or not people should be tested at the end of that 5 day quarantine period. should they be a symptomatic. so from all sides, this questions of the bite and administration in terms of what he's doing, the only possible bright spot
12:07 am
a doctor antony felt she telling the senators that it does appear from statistics to date. that ami crown is a far less severe, a version of the virus. then the delta and previous versions that knew the less he says the strain on hospitals is immense. and the fact that the virus may be ela had less severe side effects, doesn't take away from the fact that hospitals in the u. s. are going to continue to come under immense strain i can or with the latest from washington d. c. mike, thank you. and asserts city in china is now locked down the 5 point. 5000000 people in and young are not allowed to leave their homes. following the discovery of 2 cases of the on the con variant there, but 20000000 people are now locked down across onion sheehan. and you show katrina, you reports from dungy row in hine province, announced 5000000 residents have been ordered not to leave their homes until they

12:33 am
a proposed cobit 19 vaccine pass. the legislation would prevent any one who hasn't been vaccinated from entering public places such as bars and restaurants. natasha butler reports. the southern port of mac say is in a region with one of the highest unvaccinated populations in france. until recently, nico call was among them. when we 1st met him a year ago, he didn't want to cove it vaccine because he worried about possible side effects. but he has since changed his mind and just had his 2nd job. i would prefer, if i had many questions about the vaccines effectiveness, what's in it? it was a personal decision and i decided to say no to be vaccinated, but the situation has since evolved as a 5th wave. the own convent, renown, or children are a major source of transmission, and my wife is a teacher. her environment has changed. and on balance, i decided it was better to get vaccinated. very quickly. frances registered record numbers of new cove. it infections,
12:34 am
doctors say most people in hospital with the virus are unvaccinated, so the government wants to pressure those who are not immunized to get a job by introducing a vaccine pass for most social activities. last week, french impedes approved the pass. after days of face debate. people in france after have a covert hell, pause if they want to catch a train, go to the movies or even be in a restaurant like this. it is a q r code that most people have on their telephone, but effectively shows whether you've been fully vaccinated or have a recent negative test. or the government wants to change the rules of it. only people who are vaccinated will be able to access the path, which means people on fax later will no longer be able to do things like this. the measure his infuriated people who are against the coven vaccine, on saturday, thousands protested in paris against the pass. and against the french president who recently made controversial comments about on vaccinated people fell at anchor and
12:35 am
it is an attack on our freedom. i am not vaccinate. emma crohn does not respect the constitution. he has insulted me as a citizen. this opposition m p says the pastor is an erosion of roy. it's and the wrong approach, would you be resolved that those should be put to get vaccinated? you have to respect them. this, we have a, i have a clinician rates, nearly 90 percent between it to convince people who are and vaccinated. some are not necessarily because they are against it, but because they don't have enough information. well, some say the vaccine pass is divisive. emanuel macro battle, most people in france supporting it because the majority are immunized opinion. polls suggest he was right. 3 months before the presidential election. my course hoping that is risky. political calculation will pay off. natasha butler out to sarah ma say well, several nations have gone a step further than france and made vaccinations mandatory. they include austria where people face fines if they're not fully vaccinated by the 1st of february.
12:36 am
italy is made vaccination mandatory for the over fifties last week. in greece, it's compulsory for the over sixty's. meanwhile, germany's new chancellor. all of shots is planning a vote on the policy next month. or joining us now by skype is dr. andrew jones or post doctoral fellow at the lex atlas project and coarser of the article man, the tree cove at 19 vaccination and human rights in the medical journal. the lance had dr. thank you so much for joining us here on al jazeera. so we've just talked about how different countries are a sort of dealing with the issue of certain percentages of their population, just not wanting to get the vaccine. what do you make of the ideal a vaccine passports of effectively telling people that are in vaccinated? you can't access certain public spaces. good evening, you're my view is a most dependent on the design. so while these on games, and these are schemes that are highest in the lower than for parliamentary scrooge labor out a consultation process which is open and haven't clearly stated,
12:37 am
ain based games really have a potential to answer right. countries population, but conversely badly designs games and schemes are rizoto decisions simply made by a communist over president. but entry parliament, the consultation process is closed or in some cases, non existent and important. don't have a clearly stated, i will write up a potential talent for outcomes essay. you think that basically the more legitimacy it has, the more it's likely to convince the people that are still skeptical about vaccines . yeah, think, well, how the consultation process would be engaged with people vaccine hesitant. and that doesn't necessarily mean that by nice people have an exemption but, but of course, there's situations in all countries where people might have a distrust to the government. and he says, i engaged without, without saying, you don't need to get a vaccination. how would one in for says, for example,
12:38 am
in italy, they've now said that any one over 15 over the next few months has to get a vaccine. but actually the fine is only a 100 years, which isn't nothing, but it's not an enormous amount of wedding. someone doesn't want a vaccine. i mean, ultimately, are any vaccine restrictions really possible to enforce? i mean, you're, the police is going to come to your house in and inject you by force. are they now it is important to say that it will not, in many cases, well, in no case at all, are we talking about compulsive forced vaccination? is mandatory vaccination schemes are very different and there's always the opportunity for people to how to free to not have a vaccinations but you know there's, there's outcomes to back decision. so responsibilities and rights go together in terms of it being enforced well, because what, well, design schemes, again, they're gone through the process of parliament but have more legitimacy are more likely to, to be at here. and we might compare it to things like and res drinking laws which
12:39 am
are very effective for preventing younger people drinking bars and cups because noncompliance is punished in a reasonable. but still strict way. i mean, obviously one of the reasons behind this is that we're, we are seeing with the on the con variant both in this country, the u. k. in other countries, is that the percentage wise, it's a much higher percentage of, of non vaccinated that actually end up are both being hospitalized and there and, or in intensive care. you know, what would you say the solution is if we get to the point where restrictions are still in place for, for nations when actually it's a small percentage of the population that is still vulnerable. and arguably with some people would say, well, because they choose to be yeah. and this leads back to what we write about an article in terms of who's human rights that we talked about. sure individual rights are protected but was also long recognized rights to work. education as you say,
12:40 am
to a function in house system and and as i said, it's important to remember, right? so always come responsibility and the question of a harvey should an individual's right to refuse the vaccination, take priority and some others to avoid lockdown workers is an access to how service and i see because tend to saver in b outcome over the schemes are proportional to an i'm, then there's a long history of mandatory vaccinations, games been deemed in compliance with human rights law and even in new york and brazil. more recently with 90 mandatory games course themes on compatible with human rights. i mean, you mentioned mandatory vaccines. it's such a novel idea to be forced to have the vaccine. i mean, i certainly remember there were parts of the world i couldn't travel to unless i had vaccines for particular diseases. so why do you think there is such a hostility to some of these are covered vaccines?
12:41 am
i think it's a case for mandatory autonation games are pretty boring until it comes to the point where you've got to have one and you're absolutely right to say one to 2 vaccination schemes are a long history and actually just before kind of it there was a case in the czech republic, which deemed that mandatory vaccinations, games for children with for a lot for quite a large list of childhood diseases was deemed with human rights. definitely an issue. we will be talking about her for months. the can dr. andrew jill is postdoctoral fellow at the lakes at this project. so thank you so much for sharing your views and expertise with us. thus, real anchors government is imposing rolling power cuts because the state run electricity board can't afford to pay for fuel. a worse in economic crisis has already led to the rationing of gas. food supplies and petrol swelling has been experiencing severe debt and foreign exchange problems for several months. michelle
