7:18 am
that have been infected by the i'm a constraint. so that may be because they want to avoid any panic. a particularly ahead of the spring festival, holidays and of course, millions of people are going to be traveling back and forth and trying to return home for the break. but we do know that there are now locally transmitted cases that have been confirmed in 4 separate provinces. and if you're including important cases as well, what's all actually that's around half of all provinces, and municipalities and china have been affected. and there are signs as well that authorities 20 at step things up and they may be brace for a little bit of an onslaught of lee is to search in cases in hearne and province. authorities of all the thousands of make shifts, quarantined, brahms to be built. and so it does seem as though they are concerned. there could be quite a big rise in the coming days. all right, patrick fox, they're in beijing. patrick, thank you. now hospitals and intensive care units
7:19 am

7:20 am
countries. but fortunately so far with the exception in part of peru and brazil, the rest in the rest of the region, the consequences of that so far at been a mild at the main issue as being a lack of a testing. dat, as many countries have seen with the rise of request of people looking for a test that has been the case in mexico for example, argentina, partly here, but not as the as much. the other issue has been with airlines, many flights being canceled daily here in columbia, for example, 40 flights are being cancelled every every day, but so far. and the majority of the countries hospitals are not a fool. this is obviously a very good. and if you ask experts, they'll tell you that a lot of it has to do with the high levels of vaccinations across much of latin america, which is now the highest the vaccination vaccinated the region in a, in,

7:25 am
the machinery. they said like a rack in the urban centers, we are able to to clear id quite rapidly. but in other places, it's almost like a fingertip search and you have to and you're using delicate tools to deal with things. so it can be an expensive business because you want to hug back land is completely se. now, kenya is aiming to be fully self sufficient and renewable energy by the 2030. the country already gets 90 percent of its electricity from natural sources, including solar power and has the largest single wind power facility in africa. catherine saw reports now from mar, submit the blades of 365 turbines rotate on the edge of lake to canna. this wind farm, the largest in africa, is perched on a stretch of rocky desert it north in kenya. yet it is key to the country's plans to have a fully green energy supply by 2030, with
