the ah ah, this is dw, use a life from birth. through face is a desperate battle against proven 19. authorities raised the vaccinate against current of bars as an aggressive youth strain. leave hospitals expiration point, also coming up your opinion and better route on a collision course at the border. ruth threatens to block you trade that away and declare an emergency over migrants crossing as border and italy heads for the year or 20. 20 final off. the beatings spain on penalties shows, you know,
sold me the spices. kick me through. ah hello. i'm available. 100 health authorities in latin america battling a rise in current of virus infections. the region already has the highest cove at 1900 death toll in the world. brazil has suffered the most fatalities in the region with more than half a 1000000 deaths followed by mexico, where over 230000 people have died and peru has reported nearly 200000 death. d, w 's your hand. ramirez reports from lima, where the new lum variant is pushing the public health care system to breaking point in peru. people are placing their hopes for kirby and upon them each on vaccination. yet progress is slow on the some 15 percent of the organs have
received at least one those one of their worst rates in latin america. but for house work or some of the ground, it's better than nothing. most of the, most of the reasons for if you look into it, we feel optimistic because people react while to vaccination in parole. in fact, the younger people would like everything to go faster so they can get back to native sonya from a notice all the commerce cost reopened to after a 9 month quarantine. strict safety measures remain in place authorities. copper mandated using double face mast to enters taurus and shopping centers. face shells are widely used and hand washing facilities had been installed in the streets, but it has not been enough. they're all cross the highest per capita death rate in the world. the government's response to the crisis has been widely criticize. it is
the one that gave those this arrived too late for the management of the pandemic is a complete disgrace, especially for the previous president. one, now at least the fights are seen. the last 2 peaks of infection seen through have coincided with deep political crisis. that's in both cases left to massive demonstrations. the 1st one was in november when political instability led to 3 precedents in one week. the 2nd wave of protest, it's happening right now. the reason a controversial presidential election, one of the candidates cried fraud. why the other claims there is a plan to steal his victory. supporters from both sides have taken to the streets, according to some experts these demonstrations could cause a 4th arise in the faction car. but at this point, the contract cannot afford new lockdown. the great this,
the effort must be done to vaccinate the population and to start negotiating from now on new generation by teens for the new vargas that may appear. this is the most effective measure, and the week has been blowing, doing so on average, through administers about 350000 vaccines every week. a low figure for a country of more than $33000000.00 authorities have promised that the process will accelerate government forecast estimates that the eligible population will be immunized by the end of 2021. the one that says bringing dw, see your hand ramirez who filed with tax report. he is currently in columbia capital bober town. now you had your report. pains quite a grim picture. how is peruse health care system holding up the system for was going through a very difficult time because in addition to the very worried in figure or suff,
new infections and the arrival of new trains in the country who is going through a major political crisis that has led thousands of people to take to the streets in protest. and so we have new cases increase in no variance arriving in the country and massive demonstrations. that's, it's a cocktail, very favorite condition for a new wave of infections. and we have to understand this in the context of a country which even before the pandemic has a house, a very weak health system. so in conclusion, the forecast for, for barrow is not very bright. and in your report, you did speak to many people who blame political instability for the current situation in peru, so sorry, from the part promises to speed up the vaccination drive. what else is the government doing to keep these numbers down?
the government doesn't have many options. because as i said, there is going through a huge political cries. the reason is that today marks a one month since the presidential election was held on the we still don't know who won this election. that's why thousands of people have been taken to this treat. so for the government right now, the political crisis is the priority dependent because not the main issue because there are even people talking about the course. so this is a very serious so imposing a new lock down right now doesn't seem very likely because for this or wouldn't affect them and then the economy cannot afford no lockdown. so that's why hawks are placed on vaccination. united states donated to 1000000 doses to the country, but neither will allow you to actually raise the vaccination process. but last the weekend, the council received for oxygen plants donated by friends. it shows that even the hopes are placed on vaccination. the country is preparing for even worse scenario.
and what more do we know about the new lambda very and, and how worried are people about this? people are very concerned, especially the scientific community. because this of lambda variant seems to be more dangerous, more contagious. and it could be devastating for the region. there are 2 main reasons to found the alarm bells, number one in latin america, most of the population depend on informal economy. it means that people need to go out to work, otherwise they don't get money. there are very few governments offering grants to its population. so even if you look down where decrease, people wouldn't respect them because they need to work if they don't work, they don't each period. and number 2, even before the pandemic, the health systems in latin america were very poor. so if we now add a newest tray, more dangerous and more contagious, it could be devastating for the region. he's able to use your hand,
ramirez speaking to us from boca to thank you. now a new front has opened in the conflicts between the european union and bella. ruth, the ruthie and president alexander lucas sango is threatening to block you exports traveling through his country to russia and china. the terrain in turn has declared a state of emergency over the number of migrants costing its border from bell roof . these small, white shadows moving in the night are people crossing the border between bella, ruth and lithuania, entering the european union. hundreds have made the journey in recent days. a record in flux, intellect, wayne, ya. but these migrants, mainly from iraq, are at the center of a diplomatic standoff, lithuania and d. u believe beller. ruth may be facilitating the arrival is to put pressure on the block. european council president sha michelle,
traveled to live with us border area on monday to show support there's a suspicion in the room, please by the ocean regime and run it in europe. we are also, that's why we took the decision also it's an image search engine instrument. last month the you impose fresh economic sanctions on beller roof. after mintz diverted a passenger plane carrying an opposition journalist and arrested him. beller is a strong man leader, alexander lucas shanker. has no intention of backing down your room. he said he would hold cooperation with the you to control illegal migration. you don't need to do which every, some thing that we will close our borders with poland, lithuania, latvia, and ukraine, and become a camp for people fleeing afghanistan, iran, iraq, syria, libya and teenager. they are mistaken. uses african. we won't hold any one. they
are coming. not to us, but to the enlightened, warm and cozy europe, what gives us the escalation doesn't appear to be an option for luca shinkel. just yet. let's take a look at other stories making headlines around the world. police and nicaragua have arrested 6 more position figures ahead of elections in november. president daniel ortega launched the raids against his political opponents last month. nearly 30 opposition figures have been detained. 6 of them are presidential candidates. a number of countries have codes their consulates in northern afghanistan, off the recent gains made by the taliban, germany, turkey and russia have shut the door and draw the diplomat from lazar sharif. the group has overrun most of the province off the international troops, started pulling out of the country. jones can take a prime minister and the warning that his country is days away from social
explosion. the country is facing an economic crisis with hyper inflation and growing. unemployment says fuel shortages on leading to social is appealing for international support. missouri and the south africa will have to wait until the end of the week to find out the former president, jacob zoom out will go to jail. he's appealing against a 15 month prison sentence for refusing to appear for corruption inquiry. the judge will give his willing on friday, please have said they will not arrest him until then to some sports news now and in football, italy beat spain off the penalties to secure their spot. in the year or 2020 final, spain started strong putting their opponents on the back foot. but failing to school for the ricoh caveat, got the 1st go. but albert morales responded after a goal this extra time, it's these shows, you know, scored straight off the murat,
as miss from the spot said, think it's lee into the final. and on wednesday, denmark will face england at wembley stadium in battle for the other final place. joining me to discuss the semi final action is max merrill from d w. sports. the max took us through those 1st 90 minutes. well, it was a really strong start from spain and they were chances on both side. but italy would not. they usual self and that was because the spaniards really pressed them up the pitch and there was a surprise inclusion for about up top. there's not really an alex now striking, but he helped with that press and it's really kind of didn't look like we have seen them in this tournament, which is full of energy and creativity. more like the cast and that show the style of football. they've been known for in the past. so in the 60 minutes though it's, we finally found that stock spot rather through. keep up, john luigi. don't rumour of all people who snapped up the ball on the edge of his box and started the counter attack. and that led to the gulf from federico, ts,
italy, those back again, looked passive, a bottle more, dr. who's had massively bad luck in the swim. it was criticized by spanish media and fans and drops for this game. he then hit back to school, but he proved to doubt his wrong in the normal time, but the penalties missed much. so the match went into extra time. how did it really get the job done? yeah, it was enervy extra time. lots of fatigue as we often see a lot at stake, spain have more chances. italy kind of looked happy to go into penalties. and maybe that's because before it leaves pansy when against switzerland, they've missed their last 5 penalties and international football before the penalty . shoot that hugs between the 2 keepers, but then no love lost immediately. the 1st to play is missed. and then more data turned into the tragic hero. he missed it or rather his parents, he was saved. and josie knew who i recently said i would have him take a penalty if my life depended on it. well, he put it in with calm and cool. i can't believe he did it the way did it actually
came played such a strong tournament? is there any stopping them now? well, i mean, they looked a little weaker in this game and i think this is something of a to print for whoever faces them. next england, or denmark, they're playing on wednesday at wembley. england obviously favored there with the home crowd instantly today there was 860000 strong crowd. if we had the majority found that all ex pats we live in the u. k. though with negative negative cova tests, but we heard a few, it's coming home chance in the crowd actually because there were lots of neutral or england fans in the stands. so i think it's really they all visible, but it's going to take a lot from either england or denmark right next merrill, thank you very much. and finally, the can film festival has reopened with health passes, but no mosques at the red carpet social distance thing will subdue the normal glamour of the event by 20 full films. compete for the top prize. american director

pharmacy companies hiking the prices of drug. martin currently is the former ceo of turn pharmaceutical, who's responsible for hiking the price of at least $1.00 drug by 5000 percent. are you going to change right now? and if you can imagine secretly as a phenomenon, he'll straits but the system is broken and that the drug ecosystem is completely money driven him. jimmy became richer and more powerful than ever underpinned by its influence network. the pharmaceutical industry stands unchallenged in its ability to dictate government health policies. the industries power is comparable to that of a state. the pharmaceutical industry, so rich and so powerful. it's law being effects congress greatly. and also the f d a. while the industry benefits, hugely,
from publicly funded research, it manages to steer health care expenditure towards its most expensive medications . no good idea goes forward without a pharmaceutical company partner. and yet the current pricing is absolutely indispensable. in my opinion. the pharmaceutical industries, main concern is now profit that confirmed a shareholder. they're not patient. it's very cruel. because if you can't pay for you, don't get the battle against the cupboard. 19 pandemic has further web pharma companies. appetite has the pharmaceutical industry for profit become a threat to our public health systems? ah
ah ah, dera prim is on the world health organizations model list of essential medicines and invaluable weapon in the fight against malaria, and a serious infection caused by h i. v. a young us financier martin squarely manager of a hedge fund, investing in health products, bought the rights to the drug in the united states. he then bumped up the price of dera, prim from $13.50 to $750.00. a 5000 percent increase i me
squarely refused to budge on the price of his medication. now please welcome to the stage martin scrolly, founder and facing the financial press. he tried to defend the indefensible. thanks for coming up here. if you could rewind the clock a few months, i wonder if you would do anything differently. i probably would have raised the place higher. is probably what i would have done. like i think health care prices are inelastic. i could have raised that higher and made more profit, which is my primary. and again, no one wants to say, no one's proud of it. but you know, this is a capitalist society, capital system, and capitalist rules. and my investors expect me to back to my profit not to minimize them or go half or go 70 percent, but to go to 100 percent and immoral increase maybe. but perfectly legal.
as part of an investigation into the scandal of uncheck drug prices. martin squarely was summoned to appear before a u. s. congressional committee. would you say that that signal pregnant woman who might have a no income. she needs therapy for him in order to survive. but what do you say to her when she has to make that choice? would you stay on the advice of counsel invoke my 5th amendment privilege against self incrimination, and respectfully decline to answer your question. somebody's been if the taxpayers end up paying for some of them. i know you're smiling, but i'm very serious. are. all right. so i asked now that the committee, excuse the witness from the table without without objection. so order will pause for a moment as mister scaly is escorted out. the news, martin crawley was soon dubbed the most hated man in america.
sometime later he was arrested by the f. b i and convicted by a federal court on securities fraud. he was sentenced to 7 years in federal prison . beyond his individual case squarely became the embodiment of the excesses of the pharmaceutical industry. and the embodiment of its cynicism. the price of darrow has never returned to its original level. ah, you can, you can give me some useful fools attract attention by their behavior, which while cynical, is actually very useful in giving a clear picture of what these people and their abuses of the system represent the candidates, even the systems over
the past 10 years, the landscape of the drug industry has dramatically changed a handful of pharmaceutical companies manufacturers, the vast majority of drugs, the me, one of the world's top 5 is swiss company. novartis having acquired a host of smaller companies, it boasts an annual turnover of $45000000000.00. and now holds some promising patents and treatments for cancer and other rare diseases. the 2 american giants, pfizer and johnson, and johnson, had also bought dozens of rival firms to expand their market. another top 5 company is rush a swiss drug manufacturer, which is acquired $25.00 competing therapies. and the french giant son of feet has an annual turnover of more than $40000000000.00 to,

and epilepsy treatment, one of the world's most widely distributed drugs in the last 50 years. made by the french giant son feed. the drug, while effective, is at the center of a huge health scandal in europe. its use has been proved to be extremely dangerous for the unborn child in pregnant women. time i often compare my condition to the effect of the vine. i'm connected, shock like a show. ok and then and then it will be everything. disconnect me. back when i lose consciousness, i suffer convulsion and come round a few minutes or a few hours later. the fear of never waking up is a constant while for me, medication is vital, no question about it, without medication. so i wouldn't be here today. slip at me again. i was well prepared for my pregnancy over there

i couldn't have left with myself response. i had to help the other families aged 70 for the shootings. the back in the team. fucking victims, grievances that they were not forewarned about the risks of taking the drug during pregnancy. and please dismiss, came up on august. according to the health authorities, since the drug was 1st marketed in 1967, tens of thousands of children in europe have suffered birth defects and mental impairment i was. and i bought is a pharmaceutical authority that doesn't play the information game and fails to communicate with the information that has to the health authorities. it can take well, it may not have been 100 percent. sure. but we know that the lab wrote in 2003 that it had been aware of the issues since 970 ended up with boris res reply, isn't it?
yes. but the risk seems slight. sophie is one of the main big pharma companies. the biggest in france, in terms of research and development of new drugs, with branches in a 100 country worldwide. their slogan is empowering life. after weeks of negotiations, their management agreed to an interview. under one condition, stand a fee refused to discuss the ongoing legal proceedings in the cases of marine math and victims associations in europe due to how long have those in charge of some of the been aware of dep. again, serious side effects on the back to answer your question, firstly, the fucking is used in the treatment of epilepsy. we can use that to therapy for which we will license to sell the product. samples on the have to remember. epilepsy is a serious condition,
