yeah making a lot of money and controls a vast network spending lots of different enterprises how has the military been able to put itself in a position where it's now in the sixty's in fact only really opened up to democracy in 2010 so while the middle 2 is in charge they obviously managed to set up and to to establish huge networks and then they also profited usually from the opening of the country in 2010 so that was a time where they basically acquired land where they acquired business is and where they made very important deals in connections also with foreign companies now how does that affect people in myanmar on the ground so effects them to the extent that they know that the army has additional income so not only individual commanders but the also the army itself obviously benefits all of these holdings so it means that you know people are very much aware that the army has additional means to stay in power and that it might be harder to dislodge it in the future is it possible for
4:16 pm
people to boycott such businesses in the amount that a link to the army that's in fact what people are doing i mean that people have on the phones where you know you put in the name of a business and see if it's linked to the military in any way but it's impossible to know how many businesses i'm back linked to the military because it's such a vast where when you know it might not be directly held by magick month it may be held. a spouse or or a son or daughter so it's hard but people are trying to boycott them as as much as they so i assume this is a way of getting around the sanctions can oversee sanctions have any effect against the military and they can have some effect but not as big of an effect of as a lot of people would hope because a lot of the business interests are domestic and what trade for example the gems trade or. timber trade a lot of that goes to china and the and other neighboring countries such as thailand and vietnam and they haven't really shown much appetite for for science.
4:17 pm
local businesses want to stay so i assume this is a way of getting around the sanctions can oversee sanctions have any effect against the military and they can have some effect but not as big of an effect as a lot of people would hope because a lot of the business interests are domestic and what trade for example the gems trade and it timber trade a lot of that goes to china and the other neighboring countries such as thailand and vietnam and they haven't really shown much appetite for full sanctions or even criticizing the military on any thanks very much to. his look at some other stories making headlines around the world russia has launched a rocket carrying a 3 man crew to the international space station the craft is named after cosmonaut yuri gagarin russia is celebrating the 60th anniversary of gonds historic 1st flight into space 20. u.s. authorities said they picked nearly 19000 children traveling alone across the

mexican border last month it's the highest number yet recorded migration is proving a major test for president biden as he reverses many of his predecessors policies. hundreds of people have rather ending kurdistan's capital bishkek i won't chase to be sacked after a women woman abducted forced marriage was found murdered police filed a find the suspect despite the kidnapping being caught on camera abductions are common in the central asian republic. as europe fights a brutal 3rd wave of the coronavirus the european union is facing criticism for its slow that's a nation program now a new vaccine could be added russia's split make the do european medicines agency is reviewing the drug stocks for handling to russia to heading to russia robert to assess clinical trials and the production process the vaccine initially met with skepticism proof the shot without waiting for trial results but scientists later
4:19 pm
confirmed make is around 92 percent effective around 50 countries already using and . i'm joined now by rachel silliman she's a health expert at the center for global development in new york thanks very much for joining us on day w. russia's sputnik day vaccine as we just heard could be used in europe would you approve such a move so i think what the e.m.a.'s doing is correct they are valuating this rigorously they're looking at the data they're looking at the manufacturing sites and the process and they are going through the same process they work for any vaccine produced in any country so i think instead of prejudging the outcome i would endorse the process what's your take then on the safety and value of splitting. so i think we can feel a lot better about this vaccine now that we have seen in peer reviewed results published in the lancet and that was
4:20 pm
a double blind randomized controlled trial as you said in your intro i think there was a reasonable cause for skepticism early on when this was being rolled out or we had the data that said i understand the urge the a.m.a. to take a hard look at the data make sure everything is being transparently shared i think when you have process concerns up front and makes it all the more important to you know cross all your t.'s and dot your i's and make sure the process that everything is carefully examined now as we know the e.u. is way behind the u.k. and the u.s. in the vaccination rice what needs to happen to speed that up so the number one thing is you need more a vaccine you just need more supply right now i just checked the latest data about 100000 doses have been delivered across the e.u. and about 80000 or 80000000 of those sorry have been administered so there is some
4:21 pm
space to speed up that he's a vaccination with the existing supply but there needs to be more supply it looks like you know there's some reason for optimism in the months ahead. there's quite a bit of supply that should be coming online shortly but the fundamental thing is there needs to be more vaccine and then you need to lay the groundwork for the pace of vaccination once that arrives arrive the $1000000.00 question when do you say a return to some sort of normality in europe and of course globally. so i think it really depends country by country i think the u.k. and u.s. are already pretty close so what we're seeing in israel is that once about 55 percent of the population has at least one vaccine what we saw as a very sharp drop off and here is the u.k. and u.s. will probably be at that point within a month or 2 europe is lagging behind right now but i would say probably by late summer early fall to look at there and then the rest of the world is remains
4:22 pm
a big question mark because it depends when they get enough vaccine to go for that level of coverage and you know i think some more optimistic scenarios would say most countries would be there by late this year early next year but for some of the poorest countries the projections are still saying maybe not until 2023 or late next year so i think we still have an imperative to back the into an access and get the whole world back to normal as soon as possible. thank you very much for your time rachel silverman of the sentence of global development thank you. some sport now and there were 4 games in european football on thursday night as the europa league quarterfinals gone underway also could only manage a draw at home while manchester united won away in granada dutch powerhouse i lost at home to roma spanish side meanwhile want to weigh in zagreb return legs will be

playing next week. thailand has a rich boxing tradition and appeals to all ages there are an estimated 300000 boxes under the age of 16 in the country one of them is a kick boxer some medical experts are calling for a ban on children boxing but tops out wants to punch his family out of poverty. sure touch up packs a serious putsch but at what cost time like then not when i always get bruises on my shame so i have to put ice on them to heal. qatar's mother who is often ringside during his fights has mixed feelings about her 9 year old son boxing . hofmann's i do feel pity for my son when he gets hurt i know he's hurt when he's in the ring. but he always tries to hide it and tells me about it later. i feel god it's all but i know this is what he likes.
4:24 pm
i have to fully support him. makers have sought to ban boxing for children under the age of 12 but to no avail research has shown extensive damage could impact children's intelligence levels and brain development. watching causes brain injuries as weak in clearly seen from older boxers boxers are at a risk of memory loss losing the ability to control their muscles and parkinson's disease now. in 2018 a 13 year old boy died after a thai boxing match renewing pressure on thailand to ban children from the sport but its popularity in revenue potential has kept a thriving touch up despite the risk wants to cash it. in my day i can afford to buy my house car earn more money for her.

4:31 pm
this fisherman and why researchers are taking notice. i'm melissa chan thank you for joining us as the crisis in myanmar continues thousands of refugees have crossed neighboring borders including into india and in many cases indian officials have repelled them back some of these refugees have included the minority were hanging a group but there have been others exile community from myanmar already in india has been watching this unfold with or many still maintain relations with friends and family back home. reports for the last 6 zeros and her girls have felt safe here in delhi but it didn't come
4:32 pm
easy to get here they had to leave everything behind in their need to van marsh hennie says her husband was thought to have been killed by the military. they were forced to run for their lives off to the record sheltering students protesting against the military. now the situation in myanmar is bringing back painful reminders from home again last month when his brother was arrested for demonstrating against the coup he was released a few days ago but this still isn't good news. right now he's in the hospital because when the military arrested him they tortured him so much that we're told his fees isn't even recognizable. protests broke out across non-modern right after the military coup in february the sale. since then hundreds have been killed a vested and for opposing the armed forces. and the numbers are likely to.
4:33 pm
india myanmar share a long border in times like these people have often fled across the border into india to escape the authorities but the indian government is not happy with the influx of refugees it has ramped up border security to stop them. here in delhi thousands have sought asylum since the late eighty's refugees are disappointed by india's lack of support be valuable friends and relatives back home as internet shut down slow regular updates to just a trickle. requests for information have been pouring into james. who heads the refugee support group here the group has written to indian prime minister nadine's more be urging him to condemn the putsch as a democratic country they are shocked by his silence it is indeed
4:34 pm
a side. violent. human rights violation you know the where the military tortured the people just looking at them in the street and dead body you know all. but india is doing nothing. kenny feels helpless in her safety because she can do nothing for those back home but she believes that the international community should speak up to no one in. our sisters and brothers have to defend themselves against the military with their bare hands they don't have any c.v.s. please i beg other countries to help my unmarked citizens even before the cool any new myanmar good never be safe for her again she worries that if things remain as bad as they are far too many people in home country will
4:35 pm
end up feeling the same joining us now from delhi is. well who filed that report nisha we just heard from your report the frustrations of exiles who feel india isn't doing enough why is that the case and has modi's government said anything one way or the other about the coup and protest. a little further one. and a bit india has certainly had expressed deep concern at about the political turmoil in the archives however they have not named or condemned because yet they have also expressed some concern but on the violence and but they're holding back from directly to deciding the bill it is seen by x. but can't possibly drop from doing the injuries and why don't they is that india has a new effort to build its proximity it's also not just with the amount of tanks or the fact that data acquired that support to counter insurgency along the border is
4:36 pm
actually in the not eastern states of india up watching myanmar in addition there is also an effort by india to stop the cluelessness we already see between the me and my victory as well as china and india show is 1600 kilometer long border with 9 moderate and china's already large and so when they only go if india have to decide it's a minute shoot at least this is the expectation based on which experts believe that it you know is not putting out a more emphatic statement i want to explore the domestic side further so does everyone agree with what the government is saying on this. but definitely not the last of it has definitely been pushed back from the states bordering admire that are all states along this especially the tax cuts of refugees and the shared clue was excellent and still should dies across the border and are even some villages
4:37 pm
that straddles the border now even the national government has put out by the bill of duties to do not accept refugees it has also snapped up security there is even a controversial it by city put out asking these difficult lately to see you want to try to cross all heart but it was quickly majority leader that evening because of an outright kind of these states had to push back even written into the prime minister so that they cannot allow in their own back yard tell us more about the situation along the border we are we really seeing an influx of refugees given the ramped up border patrols when we do not have exact numbers at this point melissa but from the watching that find themselves the end of 2 months of between the 1900 who have managed to cross in the beginning in the beginning of this 2 month period if that's mostly police officers from myanmar were to be used to
4:38 pm
crackdown on their better citizens the way the military expected them to now that i mean that millions as well the women and children who have seen images up to see because it's their big comedy to take now but there is an expectation that even despite the water sources that the bill you continue to see people trying to cross or were and bhajans do that mentions do you really do want to have and we should as well thank you so much. remember one year ago last spring when many parts of the world went into their 1st lockdown and the traffic jams disappeared the air pollution went away and in some cases even the wildlife started showing up along empty streets and quite neighborhoods it was a reminder that the pen demick was bad for humans but in some ways good for the environment in thailand the popular resort island of cat opens this july for
4:39 pm
vaccinated foreign travelers but not without some reflection and reservations from locals about the need to make money verses the value of nature. this is like something straight out of a tourist brochure islands like oh yeah yeah i neuer. are the envy of the international tourist industry but since the start of the pandemic for inter ism has been banned for now locals have this paradise all to themselves. has lived here all his life he's one of the last of the semi nomadic people an ethnic group whose way of life is under threat. we fish in our traditional way with a spear but it's not easy. sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't because the fish are fast and swim zigzag. sutanto is a master at fishing and hunts. recently he's noticed
4:40 pm
a surprising and quite unexpected change. corona is good for the environment there are fewer boats fewer tourists and also less trash they used to be a lot more of all that here. fishing is easier now i used to spend hours looking for fish but since corona there's plenty of them. with the tourists gone life underwater has visibly blossomed. corals have recovered. fish stocks have multiplied and animals that haven't been seen for years have reappeared. for corona $40000000.00 tourists came to thailand each year 33000000 of them went on
4:41 pm
beach holidays along the coast and then suddenly they all disappeared all the boats are gone but there are no more beach parties no more noise there's less sewage and rubbish from the hotels what a difference. but while empty beaches are a boon for the environment they spell economic ruin for many in the community tourism is thailand's most important source of income even environmentalist agree it's about striking a balance. without tourism without the desire for these wonderful holiday destinations people would never have understood the importance of preserving nature they wouldn't care if the corals died anyone who goes to the seaside sees beauty and wants to protect it we can't have 0 tourism but we can't stop the pre corona madness. a gentler kind of tourism could be the way forward
4:42 pm
more regulations more environmentally friendly from july to cat is set to welcome back tourists who have been vaccinated only then will it be clear whether the economy and the environment are compatible the return of tourists. will have to share this piece of paradise once again and hopefully this time the tourists will share it with him more sustainably. that's it for today you can find more on our website d.w. dot com for slash asia check out our facebook and twitter as well we'll leave you with more pictures of the cabinets now glorifying nature thank you for watching have a good weekend and goodbye. to .

4:44 pm
on t.w. . what's going on here. house of your family home from a printer. computer games that are killing. my dog needs electricity. explosions delivers 1st. and shows what the future holds. living in the digital world shift. on d. w. . a life. well i'd rather not but how will the world look after the pandemic alone welcome to the show i'm seeing
4:45 pm
beardsley in berlin that was sociologist richard sennett with whom we spoke on monday as part of our week long exercise of imagining life after the pandemic that is the aspects of society or even our daily lives that could be changed for the better we've been asking researchers from around the world for their biggest lessons for the past year and a half here's what we've heard so far. has the pandemic changed how we live will social distancing become the new norm the danger in this is you naturalised the extreme. to zoom or even working from home a nice solution full time. to do their. covert thinking showed our society isn't as shockproof as some believed a bitter pill especially for the western world some lessons we can learn obviously one is that it pays to build in a bit of slack in the system will resilience and also we shouldn't spend so much on
4:46 pm
supplies shades of the manufacturing so i think we've learnt that it's worth more to have resilience than maximum efficiency what we see is that and most countries also have. take that they have stocks for only a few days here very much depending on other countries one step or disclose that that really pose this problem to. the stock supermarkets. what is the crisis taught us for future planning. here learn the lesson that if you spend a dollar in advance to overt a crisis you will save millions of dollars when if the crisis hits the experience of the damage has excess rated the effects of inequalities which many of us think are far too great anyway and i hope we pressure to reduce them. what can the pandemic teach us about climate change. climate change does not however where
4:47 pm
does pfizer or durnovo or astra zeneca go where they were going to come over the vaccine or build it you're going to get bought in climate change will be solved i hope the great messages that we have to live in coexistence with major of that nature is a huge thing. or researchers there we've heard from over the past week and we're not done yet today we're exploring a final question what has the pandemic taught us about sustainable growth earlier i spoke with sunscreen dixon's a clave she's co president of the club of rome that's an organization that for decades has warned about the perils of economic growth at all costs i asked centering if the race to grow economies in the years ahead will come at the costs of sustainability. well i'm hopeful not but i do think that we are starting to see that in some of the every farming recovery plans and the money that was supposed to be allocated to mark green as social initiatives is not necessarily going in the direction that we would hope we are actually in the process and myself involved in
4:48 pm
a series of different conversations with european member states to try to convince them to definitely allocate that money into programs that will create the resilience that we need to face future crises so i would say that unfortunately short termism within political cycles and also thinking only of an economic reboot which is predominately linked to certain industries won't get us where we need to go to build the reasons that we actually need across europe and across the globe i get the sense from talking to people and personally for myself as well that everyone's looking for a sense of normality when this pandemic is over a core principle that the core founding principle the club of rome has been that growth as normal is not sustainable is this pandemic a chance for politicians to signal a new direction or is that the wrong time to signal that given that the public maybe feels like it's already sacrificed
4:49 pm
a lot. i think the pandemic is absolutely the right time to demonstrate to people and tap into their consciousness they themselves have lived through this pandemic and understood what is most essential their lives their livelihoods access to food access to clean water access to public spaces where they can actually go and feel revitalize so nature and forests etc but what we're seeing is that those people that are ready for that shift are not getting the signals actually from their governments you're right the governments are going back to business as usual and you know there is that have taught phrase for the moment that we need to build back better but many of us are indicating 1st of what you can't build back glaciers you can't build back some of the things that we've destroyed for the last 50 years the club of rome has indicated that actually we're not just going to have one crisis it's not just going to be a parent or
4:50 pm
a climate change crisis it's going to be a series of crises and my deep worry is that short termism within the public sphere is actually not allowing for leaders to seize this opportunity and work with citizens we have seen that actually colbert has transformed communities we should be building on that transformation to balance florence differently to grow differently to bring in more equitable well distribution people who actually are ready to ensure and want to be ensuring that they can have access to vaccines access to good health care access to to the most important essential is in their lives and even though there's been a bonanza in lying of people buying i do think that if we get back in fact citizens have said in countless surveys but they are ready to shift their lives to take into consideration already the health care and their way but also
4:51 pm
a future crisis. you would say the politicians are the ones who aren't signaling right now that they're ready to push that further along but are they hearing themselves from their citizens are their next on the line 1st of all is that always the great tension about that short term what people want now whether it's the trip to the maldives for example whether it is the ability to buy whatever they want whenever they want versus their long term fears are those that often have both at the same time. again i'm not sure the politicians are listening really to people i think they listen to what they want to listen to they listen to special interests that we do know that corporations have a great deal power and the way in which our politicians think and also look at economic growth i guess all of the surveys that are coming back are indicating that people understand that we're facing a series of different crises and they do want to change change is difficult and it's complex and if we don't have brave leadership that understands the complexity
4:52 pm
that understand systems approaches in order to actually build a reselling and that we need for future generations then we aren't going to get there so there needs to be an approach taken by leaders and what's interesting is that when we look at those economies they truly have made that shift so for the moment we have 5 khana means that have actually moved to well being economies that are looking at social economic and environmental indicators together and they're moving beyond that g.d.p. growth scenario those economies are finland iceland wales. abstract scotland. and new zealand and new zealand and all of those economies actually are very much shifting into this area and what's really interesting for me is to see that actually through coal but they're also the economies that have managed the pandemic the best because they've started to deal risk the system
4:53 pm
pendency on only production we have to remember that the huge chains and production has been totally disrupted by kogut and it is those economies and those companies by the way that truly take into consideration what that disruption is going to do that our big 8 becoming much more recently it. sandrine dixon the clave there co president of the club of rome i spoke with her earlier and we go down to our science correspondent there williams who is this week with his own vision for a post endemic future. if you don't have your health you don't have anything what more can we do to keep as many people as possible as healthy as possible. this week is about visions for a postcode world so i want to talk for a 2nd about a fundamental change in perception that i personally view as as
4:54 pm
a loan overdue now a minimum standard of health for all is in shrine and in several international agreements including the 948 universal declaration of human rights but over 70 years later this pandemic has once again focused a glaring spotlight on health very very far away we still are from actually providing equitable medical care to everyone at the same time it's highlighted that none of us are safe until all of us are protected even those who can't afford it it's in everyone's best interest to provide comprehensive movie care and vaccines to everyone but the 1st question everyone asks is always who's going to pay for it and for me that's the crux of this very fundamental
4:55 pm
problem health is still way too closely tied to making money we've monetized medicine and and that needs to change don't get me wrong there's no question that a model treating medicine as as just another way to pursue. profit that it also helps drive innovation whether it's at a pharmaceutical giant door or a doctor's practice or or at the insurance companies that finance at all but but i personally don't think that we'll ever be able to provide decent health care to all as long as we continue to treat health care as a product something to be bought and sold like a like a car or or a smart phone i believe we've reached a point in human history where high quality universal medical care shouldn't be seen as as
4:56 pm
a utopian dream but as an achievable goal and who knows maybe the pandemic will help push us in the right direction and this week was about visions so so that's my hope for wish for a post coded future. right that's it for our team here at our weeklong look at life after the pandemic we thank you for joining us and we hope to see you again soon.
