[000:00:00;00] ah, [000:00:00;00] use this is data be nice, live from the and then you way for under fire, the euros appear to fuel arise and covet infections. world health organization officials say social distancing rules have been forgotten. not just inside stadium thought outside to after the tournament. will the continent wake up to a huge current of ours time over? also coming up israeli authorities,
9:01 am
young people to get in line for their job at the delta, very dr. new outbreaks, especially among the unvaccinated pos controversy grows overtook as president of the ones latest mega project. he says, and you can now running through a sample will be revenue critics. it will be the city's ruins. ah, i'm rebecca written welcome to the program experts, a warning the european of football championships could speed up the spread of the delta variant. this summer. games have been taking place all over the continent with some massive stadiums at full or nearly full capacity. scientists say the euros are already leading to arise in infections, and more than 60 percent of people in europe, a still not vaccinated. the joy of euro 2020, summed up by scotland fans,
9:02 am
they will you for it when their team under points against arch rivals, england at wembley. the tournament came to an end soon after. and there was another thing in the tale of covert outbreak on and off the pitch scotland midfielder billy gilmore tested positive, forcing him into quarantine, post game chattman, england's bed chill. well and mason mount also had to isolate even more worryingly . it was later revealed almost 1300 scottish fans were infectious when they went to london. the world health organization said support is traveling to game is a recipe for disaster. how are people getting the other traveling in large, crowded convoys of buses? are they taking individual measures when they're doing that? what's happening after the games, when people leave the stadiums, are they going into a crowded balls and puts to watch the matches?
9:03 am
if this mixing is happening among people who are not fully vaccinated? and there is the presence of the virus. there will be cases, this problem isn't restricted to the k finish or 30 say at least 300 fans were infected while following their national theme. mostly at that 2 matches in st. petersburg. that's contributed to a sharp rise in new cases at home. but despite these connections between euro 2020 and covey, the outbreaks wafer is pressing ahead with increased stadium capacity for the semi finals and final, at wembley. and politicians in several countries are furious. german interior minutes to host the accused, the governing body of putting profits over public health issue to dc. i think that you wafers position is utterly irresponsible to look for on phone calls. and what's more association should say clearly, we don't want it this way and we're reducing the numbers of spectators at wembley.
9:04 am
on sunday, one group of fans will be celebrating their countries great sporting success. but without further restrictions in london, fears of a coven hangover will only rise a little earlier, i spoke to felix thompson from d. w. sports and asked him why you wife has been able to push so hard to get so many fans into stadiums. whether you would argue that you heard these are the one making the calls. but we've all seen that before. the euro to city government that were stripped of the right of hosting that tournament for not necessarily allowing him to stay in the spring t or in the message is we are one fan and would you measure it to it would use it to that. it's hard to apply pressure, it's necessary to make that happen. absolutely. does the economic benefit then of
9:05 am
hosting the euro matches, give us too much power of a host country. it doesn't give you a way for lots of power. we all have to bear in mind that we believe we are doing the fund lexia nation rollout, something to do with him into, to get out of the or on a break at some point in the future. and see if you have any kind of so gaping what they have to offer to the work. so i would definitely do that way. i have the power and i believe, be directly or indirectly, the leverage in b. u. now the number of new coven, 19 cases in the united kingdom is now over 24000. and we haven't seen numbers like that since the end of january. how can health officials really justify increasing crowded stadiums, wembley, the capacity? $60000.00, these massive fan gatherings outside of and how can they be justified for so
9:06 am
helpful that the rates are very, very low, which they are. but they have been drawing the criticism in england and abroad. i mean, germany, chancellor, i, america, of france, leader in my room across the board voice concerned over the number of infections and over the outcome and the repercussions that the euro 2020, the final and final would have on the content into the whole. and i definitely think the last word haven't been said in that regard begins will be, have in london. but the question is, what's going to be the aftermath of the whole thing? and this remains to be seen, of course, of course. and it will take a few weeks to say the aftermath, of course, from the us from the euros this year, thanks very much felix kansas income on in israel koran of ours cases have surged by 50 percent in the last week. arise being blamed on the
9:07 am
delta variance. israel was among the world 1st, countries to reopen. after locked down to date, almost 2 thirds of israelis have had their 1st shot. now authorities are calling on young people to come forward to get vaccinated to avoid the return of kind of restrictions. adam good. he's taking his daughter's leah and i'm going to get vaccinated. more and more young israelis age 12 to 15 and now getting there, jump like here at this small clinic in class saba. not least because of the fast spreading delta variant. and because many have plans for this summer, i think it's really good. it gives us much more freedom and it's nice to finally, you know, corona's over soon, hopefully. and yeah, i think it's important. it's still not steadily because the countries have still not,
9:08 am
not all the countries have gotten that have gotten the opportunity to have the vaccines . but hopefully we'll be able to go down to very and has driven infections to levels not seen. and israel since april, mainly among unvaccinated people because we still have a nice amount of people that needed young people like to see here. we think affects nathan, them, young people that can be vaccinated and we still see a portion of the elderly people and not steal vaccinated for various reasons. some vaccination people also have been infected for now the number needing hospital treatment remains low. although figures are rising. so we do see people who actually acquired the delta after being immunized and they can transmit it. yet their chances to be severely ill to be hospitalized or to die or sleep. so we, we definitely see
9:09 am
a very important role for the innovation can use rain. the government is pushing for 12 to 15 year old to be a not lated. now with the by own tech finds a vaccine. prime minister enough. talley bennett is appealing to young people directly and you know that come up with some of the guys that the, i know how much you want to enjoy the summer. and you can, i also have 4 kids your age and they to want to enjoy the summer in that we don't want to impose any restrictions on anyone know, bands on parties, trips, no bubbles, nothing but you need to talk to your parents and get vaccinated. so that we have a wonderful summer with no closures and no restrictions about israel has re imposed an indoor mask mandate and titan controls that the main international airport for goods is relieved that his teenage daughters and now protected. it was somewhat of a difficult decision because there are a lot of unknowns, but there are a lot of unknowns in parenting. how long do you give them on the i pad. what time
9:10 am
should they go to bed? what food should they? what i know is that the vaccine work, these are all had big problems with the pandemic. and since everyone got vaccinated over the age of 16, the problems of all but disappeared further restrictions might be imposed just to delta variant continues to spread. but for now, israel aims to get most youngsters over 12 fully vaccinated before some of its doses expire later this month. for more on this i'm joined by professor e, alicia, and he, he's the director of the center for travel medicine and tropical diseases at sheba medical center and joins us now from television. professor nation, thanks very much for your time. according to the israeli ministry of healthy effectiveness of the vaccine against infection has dropped significantly in the last month. why is that? when is some, every day in the day,
9:11 am
a final walk seem to those in slightly less effective in preventing transmission of the top value. and we are probably seeing signs of these. we're increasing the number of infection that we are thinking justifies, of vaccine there. then that's not as effective as getting the delta variance spread around the other vaccine using exclusively the 5 of my own k m are in a box for you. and so the date of it comes with points only towards the effect of this. but we know from other countries like the u. k, then come are seen, which is also why this is also likely less effective in preventing transmission and infection. in your opinion, that is israel facing a new wave of the current of ours. they said it is important to separate the number of infections from,
9:12 am
from the actual number of severe cases in the hospital is ation in why we are seeing a 1000 no clear way. infection they took care of. now, we have not seen as substantially increasing the number of severe patients. and even if we see a increase. so currently we have about $35.00 to $40.00 patient to our entire country one hospitalized with severe human. if this trip is to over 100 patients, this is still very different than what we experience back in december and january when we had hundreds and hundreds and thousands of people died of the violence. so we actually think and have good data to support is that why the number of infections increases they've seen still have excellent effectiveness again to do that ration now report focused
9:13 am
a lot on children and how dangerous the delta variant is the kids and adolescents we saw natalie been appealing directly to adolescence to get the vaccine. well, what, how big a role do adolescence play in the fight against corona, vars? we actually know that covey these not very dangerous to. i don't a sense. we know that some of the lessons that we come to suffer for follow symptoms and for coffee. and there are some complicated in the plumber for danger to silence, but not very dangerous. the. the key is that the boxing is very listen and therefore we have enough supplies to vaccinate for $500000.00. and we think it will be very faithful. them will take them against acquiring the b c. and then
9:14 am
will we implement government them to making an attempt toward the cation bang, to encourage the lesson, to go and get vaccinated for a lesson from the center for travel medicine and tropical diseases and shape medical center in israel. thank you very much. thank you. okay, let turn out some of the stories making headlines. the suez canal authority has reached a financial sediment settlement with the japanese owners of a huge container ship that blocked the waterway for 6 days. in march. your 30 is due to release the ever given after signing ceremony. the remaining part of a collapse condominium near miami has been brought down in a controlled demolition. the talent had been declared unstable and a threat to search and rescue efforts more than a week after the disaster. 24 people confirmed dead and 121. others still missing 55 is battling to contain ablaze after a massive explosion of the factory that makes foam and plastic pellets on the

9:16 am
a cold on his support as to keep backing him in his court battle. where i am, if you didn't know any better, you would think that we're as a political ready, it is as celebrate tree atmosphere. here. you've got people dressed in the colors of the ruling, a and c, that is the party of mister summa, people dressed in the traditional hulu regalia. people are his support, as opposed to the whole province, where he does come on a lot of support. you have had gunshots being fired into the people rallying and crowds cheering around that the people here believe that they are here to support and shows on the bearing with the man who is being persecuted in the household at the atmosphere might be a little bit more somebody in the homes of south africans to feel that this is a man who has a lot to answer for. and he's refusal to present himself in onto questions to alleged corruption in his administration. and under his tenure is really a slap in the face of the law. so when the constitutional court or the supreme court handed down that that ruling that he wasn't contempt of court and then went
9:17 am
on to sentence him 15 months in prison. a lot of people felt that that was a victory for the rule of law in this country. there is the feeling that the political elite get away with anything that they are not how to a counselor about a peoplesoft that this would be a turning point for this country that people would see this. somebody like mr. zoom a former president who's really been at the highest of what you can be in this country going to prison for being in content that the law was equal and applied equally to everybody. and so that is what a lot of people welcomed. that is certainly what a lot of people told me on the day that the constitutional court made that ruling. so that was the victory that this was the views at. now of course things have sort of the winds have been taken out of the sale of, of the, of the story in the, in a sense for a lot of people. because of course mr. zoom has been allowed to review his case. but this is what this means to people in a country rife with corruption that anybody who is seen to be corrupt would be held . so company, that's what the symbolize for a lot of people
9:18 am
w christine was speaking to us from jacobs, him at home in south africa. peg as president of time on is that famously fond of mega projects. he recently launched his biggest and boldest one to date. canal is stumble is a 45 kilometer waterway running parallel to the both for a straight connecting the black sea to the sea of mara and the mediterranean. it would provide a new route for tankers and the government hopes boost turkeys revenues. many say the multi $1000000000.00 project is far too costly, given turkeys, economic struggles, and might cause an environmental disaster. w johan reports from assemble. these are the 1st groups of dirt, also colossal project that could change a symbol geography forever. a man made waterway that will flow through new urban districts with new settlements for hundreds of thousands of people. canal is
9:19 am
symbol is the largest infrastructure project. perky has ever seen. it's long been a dream of president reggie type out on we're doing today, we're starting a new page in the history of turkey's development. today we are adding a new step to the path of progress for our country, the strengthening of our nation. any, anything i do. but the controversial project is picking turkeys president against it stumbled me up. these will not cause she's, we're against it because it threatens is stumble completely. it's water, it's nature, it's security and earthquake safety. it threatens life in this case that make the according to polls that's of you shared by a majority of the cities resident. thank you to for my future. i say no for my kids. i say no for my grandchildren. i know that i'm again investing
9:20 am
billions of neurons and such a project that they insist on the canal and we will insist on stopping them. but why is the canal so unpopular and why just add $11.00 to build it any way to understand why the turkish government wants and you can now you have to look at the one that's already that the boss for us. it's one of the world busiest shipping lanes, more ships, transit the ball rose than the susan panama canal, combined to many according to the turkish president. he says, a 2nd waterway is needed to prevent accidents like these. the 45 kilometer long camel has an official price. take a $15000000000.00 ships like these, the government argues will no longer have to wait days to enter the boss for us. and turkey will collect fees on them. but critic say president ed ones,
9:21 am
dream is an environmental nightmare. the canal will cut through agriculture. land and forests often refer to as one of the few remaining green lungs of a stumble. it threatens marine ecosystems and crucial water. reza was really good, non washer the can. now we'll start from this lagoon and run through the saddler, dera, dam, which is an important source of fresh water placed on board. the city is already struggling, opening new areas for real estate development, bringing new populations and destroying everything natural will make the city uninhabitable long holidays reject. the president, however, hopes to boost the construction sector, create thousands of jobs and turn the years of an ailing economy. the louder the opposing voices grow, we've seen the more determined he is to proceed with cars over to date of the cars on uria han in assemble. she sent us that report julia why as president one so
9:22 am
determined to go ahead with this mega project? well, in his nearly 20 years in power, president edwin has launched a number of maker projects. think of is symbols, new gigantic airport, for example. but this project, the assemble can now really have an entirely new dimension and add one said he would go ahead with it with a critics like it or not. his opponent said he is using the project and the promises that come with it for an investment jobs, a boost of turkeys revenues to mobilize his base. because the theories of opinion polls show support for the president and for his islam is rooted a k p. and his tory alone. now electrons are scheduled until 2023, but they're all pools for early elections and the economy is ad one's weak spot. there are reports that much of the financing is coming from china. what can we make
9:23 am
of that? well yes, there is speculation that china could play a role in financing and building the canal, but the turkish government has so far not confirmed. these reports the official price take all the project, is that $15000000000.00 us dollars, but some estimate the real figure to be 4 times at least 4 times as much. this is and as for normal amount of money for a country with depleted, affording double digit inflation and the massive flooring adept. so right now, there are many question marks over where the money for this project is going to come from. indeed, and could the other therefore fees that the new canal could threaten the military balance in the region. well, this is a bit difficult to say into project, but then you can now represent
9:24 am
a point of tension with russia. right now. the boss for us is the only connection between the black sea and the mediterranean. and there is the so called montreaux convention. a treaty signed in 1936, which limits the size and excess, offering warships to the black sea. and russia considered this convention vital to maintaining the black sea of the russian fear of insolence. if the new canal would not be covered by this convention, there could this could lead to an increase of, that's the russian fear here of us or nato warships in the black sea, especially the time when they to russian relations are very, very tens and tensions there are increasing, the turkish government says, the montrose convention will remain intact, but there have been some ambiguous remarks in the past. and that led to a lot of speculation about the geopolitical dimension of this project. right, you know, home thinking who's from assemble thanks very much. and out for some more world headlines,
