highly effective if it prevents if severe defeats and hospitalized patients and it is saving lives vaccination is extremely important in helping us in the fight against cope at 19 and we need to use the back scenes we have to protect us from the devastating effects to my media it comes as u.k. authorities recommend that the astra zeneca vaccine should not be given to adults under 30 where possible but again they stress the continued use of the vaccine our review has reinforced the risk of this respect its side effect remains extremely smooth. the drug maker itself says the bottom line of the regulators findings is that the astra zeneca vaccine offers a high level of protection against coated 19. let's talk more about these findings now we have our correspondents on the story charlotte shells from hell is in london and regular it is in brussels it's good to see you both there let's are with you there in brussels the e m

a again decided not to limit access to this astra zeneca vaccine to certain age groups even though many national regulators have decided to do so tell us more about how it justified this decision the scientists to the. risks and gender not specific factors of for this vaccine they found that out of 86 cases in 86 cases out of 25000000 there is a link to the vaccine but no clear evidence that this has in it to actually cause the trouble this is and hence the recommendation to go on the pacific solution well meanwhile charlotte you know in the u.k. tens of millions of people have already been backs unaided with the astra zeneca vaccine and now people under 30 days won't get it so how are people there reacting . right yes to me $20000000.00 people in total here in the u.k. of had of the astra zeneca vaccine and the suggestion now that there is
1:05 pm
a more plausible link between this vaccine and these cases overread blood clots is of course dominating the headlines here but it really does have to be in a broader context we've been told very clearly by authorities here that the risk is vanishingly rare and that the balance very much outweighs the risk now the vast majority of people in the younger age groups the 18 to 29 where it's been decided here in the u.k. that the risk benefit count collation falls in favor of recommending other vaccines instead of the astra zeneca vaccine haven't yet received a 1st and they won't for several months so those who are most affected have not yet received a dose of the vaccine yet but you have to bear in mind about the how the news is received here is that banks in confidence is extraordinarily high the same conversations that have been having in other parts of europe about the astra zeneca
1:06 pm
vaccine about its effectiveness and about potential risks just haven't been have the hope of course is that confidence will remain one tabloid newspaper on its front page saying carry on and keep jabbing well there and coming back to you i mean charlotte there was a speaking about confidence and we have each new member states taking very different approaches to how they decide to administer this vaccine why is there a european regulator the e m a if countries don't follow its advice. it can be a bit confusing at times in the european union but it comes to host the member states a soli responsibility to take decisions the e.m.a.'s only issuing recommendations and some national authorities decided not to follow them looking at the same data and the so the majority of the u. countries says no restricting the use of the vaccine to for people over $5055.00 or $65.00 but there are lots of countries like poland and austria that just go on with
1:07 pm
the road us to go for a sustained income and surely coming back to you there in london you know prime minister boris johnson he has been a big defender of the astra zeneca vaccine what does this mean for his policies and his politics. right well there 'd in 2 big questions that the british public will be asking of the government have asked me well the vaccine rollout continue with plans and secondly what does this mean for the easing of restrictions knock down restrictions here in the u.k. and we're being told that that vaccine program will continue it is expected it's hopes that all adults will receive a festus of the vaccine by the end of july we've been told again today that that is still a long shadow that there are more and more than enough all the vaccines madonna and pfizer that's being rolled out here in the u.k. to cover the 18 to 29 age group and then in terms of the easing of restrictions boris johnson saying today that that will go ahead as planned more lock down restriction is going to be eased off this coming monday charlotte chosen pill in

london and band recruit in brussels thank you both very much. now germany's health minister says the government plans to talk directly to russia about purchasing it sputnik the vaccine the bilateral talks would mark a break from the european union's earlier strategy of negotiating with drug makers as a bloc now the southern state of the various earlier announced it had signed an agreement to purchase millions of doses of sputnik v. the vaccine won't be used until it is approved by the european medicines agency germany would follow austria and slovakia in ordering the russian vaccine hungary is already using it. and let's bring in our political correspondent thomas farah with the very latest on the story hi thomas as we said you know germany had in the past emphasized the need to act together on the european level as one block it seems that we're seeing a change of strategy here aren't we. well it is
1:09 pm
a stark change of strategy if you consider that in the past germany had defended time and time again the procurement of vaccines are to the european union level the way that the german government has defended this idea defended the need to at least go into bilateral talks with russia over the sputnik vaccine is by saying that the european commission had informed the different countries that it was not going to sign a contract with the sputnik v. as it had done with other producers like for example by own take pfizer so basically that left it in the hands of the countries themselves to decide whether they would go into bilateral negotiations and that's something that the german health minister yes informed his european colleagues during a meeting earlier so that's how the german government has explained this change of strategy the german government is planning this in 2 phases the 1st one waiting for the european union approval on dr vaccine and 2nd then going into concrete discussions with russia on the specific elements of that possible delivery. let's
1:10 pm
talk about the data here thomas because but the wii is as you said not yet approved and slovakia has recently reported that batches of the vaccine do not have the same standard as the batches that were used in studies published in the lancet magazine does is this indeed mean that germany will wait for the a.m.a. to approve this. it does mean that germany will wait for the e m a to approve this the german health minister has stressed that this is the precondition before entering in any concrete negotiations with russia that's by the way also a precondition that the bavarian leader issued when he mentioned those that initial agreement over vaccines for bavaria so germany will certainly wait for that year may approval and he has said that russia must and i'm quoting must deliver concrete and complete data to european officials before that can be approved once it is approved if it is approved then germany would go into a very concrete negotiations with russia on what they want to know there from
1:11 pm
a german is how many doses russia could deliver and when germany says it hopes that that would happen in the next 2 to 5 months our political correspondent thomas for with the latest there thank you brazilian president also naro has vowed to keep his country open even as the death toll from covert 1000 it's a record daily high highly infectious variance and a slow vaccine rollout are further complicating the situation critics of the country's far right president say the government's inaction is at fault and fear brazilians may pay the price with their lives. health care workers pushed to the limit this makeshift hospital in brazil's largest city some polo is struggling to cope is covered 19 cases. experts have warned the district lockdown is necessary to slow the virus one of brazil's leading public health institute speer cruz said
1:12 pm
without lockdown measures the country's health system faces collapse. but the president disagrees. but what was we're not going to accept is the policy of staying at home of closing everything down the virus will not go away this virus like others is here to stay and will remain for a lifetime it is practically impossible to eradicate it what are we going to do until then. the country has registered more than 13000000 coated 19 cases since the pandemic began it is now at risk of overtaking the united states with the world's highest rates of infection and deaths the president's opponents know where to point the finger. i didn't but i. presume there's a time bomb a breeding ground for corona virus creating new strains variants because there is a total lack of control of the pandemic and of life for this reason and at this moment we are ashamed not of our people but of our government especially both
1:13 pm
scenario. without measures in place to control the spread many health experts fear brazil will hold back global efforts to contain the virus brazil lags behind much of the world in buying up vaccine doses and the rollout has so far failed to significantly slower the spread of the virus with no lockdown in sight brazil will continue to bury thousands every day. let's take a look now at some other stories from around the world a lesson of only has been diagnosed with 2 spinal discourteous according to his lawyer imprisoned russian opposition leader is said to have lost sensation in his legs and hands of ali is on hunger strike in a penal colony. jordan's king abdullah has broken his silence over a public rift in the royal family and told the nation that the worst political crisis in decades is over it was sparked by an alleged plot involving his half brother the king statement said that recent events had caused him shock pain and

clashes with crowds authorities have accused outlawed paramilitary groups of inciting people to riot. we can speak now to henry mcdonald he's an author and journalist who has reported on and written about northern ireland for more than 3 decades henry welcome to the w. it does sound like there was more than one issue that is fueling this latest violence that we've seen what do you think is to blame here. to me it was 5. years. to. see. this through the best. and still see. a lot. of. thousands of. times tradition to. your receiver j c
1:16 pm
a s c if you think. it's. ok. to. use ok each. patient of. the jungle since it was march i think. that's. ok henry unfortunately we're going to have to leave it there we are having some trouble understanding you there's some difficulty with the line there but the header mcdonald journalist and author joining us there from belfast thank you so much. now how a chair or the lack of one has dashed hopes for the relations between the e.u. and turkey 2 of the european union's top leaders was left on the line and shall michel this is a turkish president branch of thai party won an on camera on wednesday but as the 3
1:17 pm
gathered for talks there were only 2 chairs present what happened next has turned into a diplomatic scandal. it was a meeting that said hopes for reengagement between the e.u. and tukey but spending time has got off to a rocky start. one of the e.u.'s most powerful female executives was left without some way to sit instead of being placed in equal rank according to diplomatic protocol arcilla von deland the european commission president was placed on the sofa while the men took center stage it draws stock comparison to previous years where un turkish leaders were seated in equal standing whether the optics were intentional or not it may have added further strain to their relationship but the spokesman for the european commission says she wants to focus on the issues at hand . merits high substance over questions of formal particle and that sets and they want european citizens would have expected all of her is not my job to judge what
1:18 pm
was behind the fact that we offered one type of seat another a key focal point for the e.u. was for turkey to improve its human rights record. on car recently withdrew from a treaty that protects women against violence and discrimination the country has seen nationwide protests against femicide where domestic violence and murders of women are on the rise and the diplomatic focus has sparked outrage online. some called out the political strains between the e.u. and turkey others say it reflects how women are treated in the country and took aim at the european council president for not playing his part in standing beside the european commission president turkish officials are pointing blame at the e.u. . goodish rather than your restaurant i was them their requests of the e.u. are met and the problem protocols applied in the scope of this high level meeting
1:19 pm
that took place in our presidency the seating arrangements were made in line with the e.u. suggestion because for now it may be a long road ahead to establish better time between the 2 sides. me and maurice ambassador to the u.k. has been locked out of the embassy in london he said representatives of myanmar as military junta have taken control of the building is going to go ok. thank you. who is in the building for. the events of the today chief. be ok by my embassy. the one time i had attempted to recall the ambassador last month after he spoke in support of civilian leader aung san suu kyi and urged for her release from detention this comes as daily protests against the coup grow increasingly dangerous at least 15 people were killed across me in mar on wednesday . journalist and tun has been covering events in myanmar for us and joins us from
1:20 pm
neighboring bangkok it's good to have you on the w. now you have left me in march for security reasons what are you hearing about the current situation there. what we're seeing in myanmar now is an intensification of the prosecution of anyone who is showing dissent to military fall so not only are we seeing a military that is showing that they are now going to essentially indiscriminately kill people and use military grade weapons at protesters you are also seeing them roll out list after list. not only politicians but activist celebrities. like people who are simply doing things like. make up blocking things like that anyone who has some sort of audience in the m.r.i. and is using their platform in order to spread the word about what's happening and express the sense about what's happening right now with the military has also been arresting prominent activists including actor pine tar cohen who has as you've been
1:21 pm
saying prominent people showing support for this movement he's one of them what more can you tell us about that case. so he's one of the hundreds of people who are now either wanted or have been arrested by the military and i'm going to be charged if they do get arrested with 5 or 5 which is a incitement charge and they are really trying to leverage the myanmar legal system in order to try to make people stop publicly dissenting to military rule and discharge which has been used against not just the celebrities but also journalists carry a charge of up to 3 years and so. i think we don't have speech of people to voice their discontentment what's happening in the country and we just saw these images of them in our basket or to the u.k. essentially barred from entering his own embassy or what do you make of that.
1:22 pm
so it's likely that what our military is doing well now that they are have been able to at least to a certain extent suppress street protests the protests have grown to underline both in terms of numbers but also in terms of how often and how many places they are happening in at least the in person protests they the military is now focusing more on consolidating its power in consolidating its control both inside and outside the country and so what you see with this move the u.k. embassy is a essentially a a test in which the u.k. is now being confronted with the choice of whether or not they will continue to work with the civilian appoint civilian government appointed ambassador or essentially recognize the military hunter asked the legitimate government of them are working with the ambassador there that the military wants to have an aunt in the. journalist and then tongue sticking out to us from bangkok thank you so much

now these days the art market is going digital investors are spending enormous sums on artworks that exist only in digital form until now digital art was so easy to copy that it didn't make much sense financially but now that has changed and the implications for the art market are huge. the magic word is n.f.t. or non fungible token and it's revolutionizing the art market this technology records the owner's identity in a blank sheet while the work itself remains publicly visible on the web for anyone to see. so what and it is a technical stand there to meet the work of art where any to any. essence. uni so you get it all going well to me that
