8:31 pm
world health organization has sharply criticized the lack of action. the world is in bags, you know, but the lack of doses is having serious knock on the facts for poor countries. and not enough vaccines means more people catching the virus more hospitalizations, more deaths, just take kenya, where case levels are pushing hospitals to the brink, especially as they run short of vital supplies. health officials won't the highly contagious delta variance 1st identified in india is responsible for the rise and infections. the w is, mario miller visited the hospital in consumer where they're running dangerously short of medical oxygen the screams for more oxygen, the intensive care unit, and consumer hospital. one of the biggest in kenya. yes. nurse nicholas piano has seen a 3rd of his covert patients di you might think of if you might think the patient
8:32 pm
is improving. they might talk to you in one second and then they're just collapse. and di the i see you is for a piano and his colleagues overwhelmed. they just lost another patient. the hospital director is worried. they need 5 times more oxygen and far more high flow oxygen machine than they have. and we in africa need those high flow devices, they're very expensive, so we kind of for them, we lose lives that could be saved because this devices are not available. the house officials believe the number of crew and others cases is much higher than recorded, especially in villages where people can't afford the transferred to a hospital. come on, come on and move to. well, jennifer, we g bird. her youngest sister, 2 days ago, it went very fast as a bad headache, fever, shortness of breath would be when it all started on a sunday,
8:33 pm
when you learned church, she felt unwell by the time saturday came. it was too much for her to bear. she was taken towards the door and the same day she died. the death has come to the senate residency. there's been 50 barrels here in recent weeks. the only oxygen plant in the region has reached breaking point and won't be able to meet an increasing demand. i'm getting so many calls from the person who need to do will need to be home for regular. if you don't use them as plus as possible, then the next few minutes. that's going to be gone back at key soon will hospital. there are some good news. a patient who's been dependent on oxygen for weeks will be released soon. somebody should not. you'll cut out and that is not
8:34 pm
the thing is really when you want to take life, just say to remove whatever they're giving you where you are in sentiment, then you feel it's luck was on his side in the health system. so overstretched. luck is what these patients will need and joining us now is director of the africa centers for disease control and prevention doctor john king of song. thank you very much for taking the time to speak with us today. now, before we get to the supply shortages, i just want to go back to a statement that we heard earlier from the chief of the w. h. ho. do you agree with him that the world is in, in his was a vaccine apartheid? absolutely. absolutely no way you cannot say the world is in that situation, given the disparity in access to vaccines that we are experiencing in africa, we're over or just above one percent of the population of 1200000000 people have
8:35 pm
been vaccinated. and we actually don't know when vaccines to be interact, continent scale and speed. so it is a very troubling situation. it is a situation that we haven't seen. it should not be the case for a month. but here we are with that situation. yeah. especially in the midst of a very aggressive ted waive su, describing this extremely serious situation. and youth previously said, africa is not winning against the virus. so what needs to be done and who needs to do? it's to get the continent in a winning position in, in respond and in anticipation of exactly what we agree in food. on the 8th of may, we convene an emergency meeting of, or minister of her to actually want to raise an alarm that what was happening in india could actually happen here. if you recall, we said we need to do 3 things. we need what we call in hands prevention. we need
8:36 pm
it in hands monitoring. we need it enhance treatment, where people actually, countries actually stop them set up with oxygen, where we knew where the various were created by conducting surveillance and flushing out their hot spots. and we have an access to vaskins, does that, does that come on strategy? we agreed on the 8th of may? so this was anticipated a was predicted that we may actually begin to see us that we really as t calling for partnerships to support countries to fight these varied, brought up with. okay. and we saw just in our report that the medical supply shortages, one of the biggest pressure points on health care right now in kenya as we saw or an e, c o, p, or africa more broadly. very broadly, you see that hospital systems over when health care workers over when we to
8:37 pm
start with we don't have enough health care work as so it hosted us up to now the board is substantial amount of efforts and resources to treat in cover patients. you can very quickly see the damage and hum that is going to cause other diseases under control. and so we deal with the situation where the new baby and the database is spread and very aggressively transmit over in excess of 40 percent. more than the ordinary 1000000000. so that is what is of a women that has that just in kenya. we see that in, via we have a swap team. in zambia, we have team that i had into many african countries to support them. that suggestion is very alarming across all across the continent. ok, so that's about the spread of the delta. very it making things even more difficult than they normally would have been. but while hospitals ready and if they're still not ready to accept this 3rd wave, what needs to be done and how can they go about it?
8:38 pm
my advice suggest cdc is that countries we need to improvise, begin to look at, make ship scenarios where they can actually use open door and outdoor facilities to treat patients like your grandson that are doing use in sports arena and keep them with make sheep facilities to treat patients because the hospitals are overwhelmed and you do not view the hospital by night. we do not develop her system, but need them at the same time you develop them before you need them. so we are completely in immediate of a situation and you know where we need to improvise and develop make treatment centers. all right, well thank you very much for your insights to very difficult situation. the africans facing right now, but hopefully there will be some kind of way forward. the has to be dr. john and can get some from the africa cdc. thank you very much for your time. thank you.
8:39 pm
thank you. and now it's the part of the program where we put one of your questions to our science correspondent derek williams. paul, can a person with h p v, or cervical cancer, get the cobra 1900 vaccines. oh, i need to get a little background on this answer to make sense. h p v or human, paloma virus is a virus transmitted mostly through sexual contact. that can cause wards or lesions in those who contract it. it's actually the most common s t i world wide, and it's also viewed as a risk factor for later developing a range of different types of cancers. about 40 years ago, german researcher holds through a house and proved a direct link between h p,
8:40 pm
v. and cervical cancer and was eventually granted the nobel prize for his work in 2008. that research laid the foundation for the development of h p, v vaccines and, and gave rise to the long term goal of eventually wiping out cervical cancer entirely by stopping the transmission of h p. v. so, so now you know enough to go on, let's get back to the question. cancer patients, as a rule, have actually been placed pretty high up on priority lists and most national backseat campaigns. doctors usually want their patients to get the chart because they're often heavily immunocompromised pence in a pretty precarious place if they do get sorry, covey to in fact, research is now showing that far from posing a danger to cancer patients, the big worry is that covert 19 vaccine won't stimulate
8:41 pm
a strong enough immune response in them to fight off the duties should they be exposed. so studies are also ongoing to see whether a cancer patients might require more shots to achieve the same protective effects. if you have h p v, or cervical cancer than talk to your doctor of course before being vaccinated, but, but in most cases, i assume the recommendation will be to get your shod as soon as possible. me eric williams. and finally, new york city put on a party hat on sunday for pretty much the 1st time since the pandemic began. the annual may seize fireworks show lighting up skies in celebration of the countries independence day. the show was bigger and brighter than last year's more subdued event, including cold play performed,
8:42 pm

8:47 pm
still fight and prove ourselves to be equal. in the novel, she is maia, and the only black girl in 1972 score neighborhood being perceived as different is a defining experience. her father is a doctor, her mother, a princess who challenges preconceptions with an immense pride in her origins. you know, we're always preparing to go home. europe was always a short stop. it was never the end goal. so no, that wasn't the sense that europe was bad at all. it was always like home is where we belong. that's where we're going. we've come here to get an education so that we can go home and, you know, make it better, make a life event. at 1st, maya has no concept of homeland. she shuttles between locations. do spark london a convent school in noise. she learns the codes at the european world until one day

8:50 pm
which apart from, you know, the obvious in cells and racism, implied in that question on the surface. you know, this whole kind of civilizing colonizing mindset is still completely prevalent. even in those museum directors that are willing to have conversations with us, that they need to speak to us. and until this is shifted it's for me, it's a bit of an empty gesture. there are a multitude of historical wrongs to put right. not for y'all to novel says that god, children do exactly that is travelling through time and hearing the whisperings of the universe. in the other culture news, damien hirst, an awful chevy blur of the contemporary art world, is best known for his provocative pieces featuring dead animals in formaldehyde from way back in the ninety's. but
