the discovery of the world around use subscribed to d w documentary on youtube. me . pfizer, in bio and tech se they are developing a corona virus booster vaccine targeting the del, to various do we need a booster? the vaccines are working and health authorities in the us say, no one will need a 3rd shot anytime soon. well, that is the positive outlook that u. k. prime minister bores johnson was trying to tap into today when he confirmed that england will lift all pandemic restrictions next week. despite more and more you infections. how dangerous is this? is it premature? johnson says it's cautious, progress, and that it's waited long enough on bread,
10:31 pm
gulf, and berlin. this is the day. the news this pandemic is not over please get vaccinated. it will protect you against the surging of the delta variance. please get back to me. now please go and get back to tonight. is goal related and do it today? do not delay. the vaccine is the case, right? it, we definitely to get vaccinated. that's the way we beat the variance. our hope was still is that with the vaccination that we would take the pain, the tragedy of the suffering also coming up on sunday, he flew to the edge of the outer space and into the history books. sir richard branson is now an astronaut tourist and he says as soon you'll be able to be one to
10:32 pm
the next generation, the dreamer raven. just imagine what you can do. so i went to our viewers on p b. s in the united states into all of you around the world. welcome. we begin today with the mixed messaging about how best to protect ourselves against the corona virus. pfizer in buying on tech, say they are now working on a booster vaccine a 3rd shot. and they cite their study in israel showing, waiting efficacy as the delta variant has emerged. but public health authorities in the us are pushing back the centers for disease control and the food and drug administration. both saying that current data do not show a need for a booster shot. now that may change, but as the science stands now, people need 2 shots, not 3, a year and
10:33 pm
a half into this pandemic. we are still struggling to communicate with one voice and one message just asked the people in england one week from today, all remaining paid them restrictions will be lifted, and that despite a continuing rise in new infections, today, u. k prime minister boris johnson said the public must be cautious and yet he said, the public cannot wait any longer. but what does that mean when face masks and social distancing are no longer mandated? here is the u. k. prime minister. we cannot simply revert instantly from monday, the 19th of july to life as it was before k did. we will stick to our plan to live legal restrictions and to lift social distancing. but we expect and recommend the people where a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you come into contact with those. you don't normally meet, such as on public transport where removing the government instruction to work from
10:34 pm
home where you can. but we don't expect that the whole country will return to that desk as one from much less bringing doctor william chapter. he's an infectious diseases professor at vanderbilt university school of medicine in nashville, tennessee. dr. schaffner, it's good to see you again. the lancet medical journal says that it is dangerous and premature to lift all restrictions in england as new cases of the delta variant . so, or is this a case of the too much too soon? well, you know, the combination of vaccine and restrictions will restrict the spread of this virus and it's difficult farm country the country to get actually a good balance. one that will work locally and will be accepted by the populace. certainly, the more we vaccinate, we can ease up on some of those restrictions. we know the case with england at the
10:35 pm
number of hospitalizations and deaths from code 19 are not increasing, but the number of new infections that number is. is it then safe to assume that this trend will not change in england? well, i think it is very likely that the more we get vaccinated to fewer and fewer hospitalizations will be required. you know, that's actually what the vaccines were designed to do to prevent serious disease. they are less effective in preventing infection, which can have no symptoms or only mild symptoms. and so the spread of this virus isn't painted by the vaccines, but not as completely as we would have hoped for. want to ask you about what is going on on your side of the atlantic, pfizer and by, on tech saying that they are developing a booster shot vaccine. and they're pointing to their own study in israel. but all
10:36 pm
the data has been mounting that shows that the vaccines provide a lasting protection. so this really is shocked, as it almost seems like it came out of nowhere. what's your take? well, i don't think it's a good idea to make recommendations by press release, and certainly on the good side these vaccines continue to provide durable protection. we're out to lunch to a year now. and so the protection in the field in the real world is not diminishing number to the vaccines protect against the variance that are currently your problem, particularly the delta varying. so that's why the cdc in the food and drug administration said it's wonderful to have a booster available on the shelf book. we don't need to implemented at the present time. and i certainly agree with that. yeah. and you know, we don't want to accuse pfizer and buy on tech of, of trying to push up their,
10:37 pm
their profit margin here. but this quick drive to get a booster vaccine on the market. it makes people wonder, you know, whose interest are the pharmaceuticals really working in well, i'd like to stay away from that question and just remind everybody that including my friends and industry that they should be communicating with the f t m. the cdc. it only creates confusion if they come out with press releases in the, in the public. but the cdc is really pretty clear at the moment. we don't need a booster. we need to focus continuously on people who haven't gotten their 1st shot. rather than worrying about people who would want their 3rd, you know, and you mentioned your communication and these competing narratives that were getting on both sides of the atlantic. the show was that one and a half years into this pandemic,
10:38 pm
we are still struggling to communicate effectively and to communicate in one voice . sorry, i'm afraid we are. you know, if you had asked many of us before cobit, what's the most important aspect of controlling any new pandemic? and i think many of us would have said communication, communication, communication, clear science space, coherent, not from the politicians, but from public health authorities. we still haven't completely learned that lesson . i think almost anywhere. and, and i wonder for our viewers tonight, i want to ask about the situation in the united states. well, we have you here. almost all new cases are new infections that are being reported now are in people who have not been vaccinated. is that correct? pad is a very powerful statement because it is correct. people who are being admitted to the hospital or in behind ninety's percent on vaccinated or move only received
10:39 pm
one dose. it really is very unusual to have an unvaccinated person currently being hospitalized. number one, that's a testimony to the effectiveness of the vaccine. and number 2 is tragic because let you know that virtually all these admissions could have been prevented. and those persons receive faxing. that is the tragedy that continues almost 2 years into this pandemic. dr. william shafter is always start to shaft. it's good to talk with you . we appreciate your time and your insights tonight. thank you. always a pleasure. will england says that the success of its vaccination drive is allowing the remaining panoramic restrictions to be lifted next week. half of the population is fully vaccinated, more than 80 percent have had one shot of the situation across the channel and france is very different. only a 3rd of people there are fully vaccinated and with
10:40 pm
a delta cobit 90 variant running. why in the country, the government is turning to ever more drastic measures to contain it. today for president micron announced that the corona virus vaccination will be compulsory for all health care workers. you do live, we must move towards the vaccination of every one in france. because it's the only way to return to normal life. initially for nursing and non nursing staff in retirement homes, clinics in the hospitals, establishments for people with disabilities. for volunteers who work in contact with elderly or fragile people, including at home vaccination will be made compulsory without delay. we'll get to saw that don't. now, micron is likely to face opposition in his bid to make the vaccination compulsory and the health care sector. vaccine skepticism is higher in france that in neighboring countries, this lack of trust in the vaccine. it has spread to health care workers themselves
10:41 pm
. he w lisa lucas, reports celine has had her hands full during the pandemic, hoping some of the most vulnerable at this retirement home south east of paris, to protect them. the assisted nurse has been wearing masks and gloves, but there is one precaution. she'd rather not take, at least not for now. i don't care, but fidela. i want to wait a bit longer before i guess. i mean, i want to do it. we need to know more about these new vaccine. first of all, the government because a lot of things wrong at the beginning of the pandemic. what i don't want to rush into the precipitous shows like her almost for francis nursing stuff have not yet been immunized, but forcing them to would be unfair. says jocelyn. to wear the
10:42 pm
pandemic heroes and now are the black sheep because we prefer to wait before guessing the thing that makes me so angry and snippy. a probably guess it just leads manager agrees. she says, such a rule would cause major problems for the nursing home home. you know, they should try to convince people, instead of forcing the black already struggling fine personnel. i'm several of our highly qualified stuff. i've said that if they had to get the vaccine, they'd rather quit their jobs. yes. so do do that stuff. but this far ologist things that if france is going to prevent the next k with 1900 way from overwhelming hospitals, vaccination will be crucial. and that includes health workers near port to have 12 cast books on the vaccine. give 95 percent protection against severe symptoms causes mis say, you know, if we need to guess 80 or 90 percent of the population immunize. ethics especially
10:43 pm
with the delta variants, nor which are those in an infected person, impacting up to one other and before they start to a huge number, rita skeeter, you know, so for just over one 3rd of the french population is fully vaccinated. and the number of 1st jobs per day has been falling over recent weeks. but the government knows that time is of the essence. that's why it has been ramping up its campaign to push people to go back tonight, in the media from pace. and with him from where we vaccination campus, like this one just outside paris city. for here you can get a cold with 19 jap without having to book a slot and it's on making health care workers get vaccinated might help the country approach the crucial vaccination threshold. but reaching it remains. an appeal struggle to south africa has deployed,
10:44 pm
gets military to push back in stop violence that was sparked after former president jacob zoom turned himself into the police. at least 6 people had died. hundreds more had been arrested. south africa, the highest court has begun hearing zoom as appeal against his 15 month prison sentence for contempt. presidents hero fossa has called for common the country warning that the unrest could lead to shortages of food and medicine. soldiers gone the streets of south africa, then to protect police after protests, month by looting and destruction of property became more violent. looters planted, a large shopping mall in durban overnight is one of many businesses in the port city that will ransacked over the weekend. another shopping mall lies in ruins in peter mad. it's book, some 80 kilometers from durden. the unrest has been mainly concentrated in the
10:45 pm
south eastern province of quantity in a town during this whole region, many of his supporters, they were angered by him. it's 15 months. dow time employed for failing to appear as a corruption inquiry, but now the violence is also sprayed to johannesburg. south africa, the economic panel health with police reached in the army will deploy troops to the 2 most affected regions. although these may be opportunistic acts of looting driven by hardship and poverty, the poor and the marginalized bed that are to made branch of the destruction that is currently underway. duma is popular among many of south africa is less well off. his imprisonment has laid bad deep divisions in the country. or earlier we spoke with our correspondent christine, when was she is in cape town and we asked her who was behind this one rest. it
10:46 pm
started out with the people in the hands calling out before the president's support is to go and pray against his incorporation. his imprisonment i'm so initially when politics says were coming out where they were blocking roads and creating also pay on. they were saying that this is in the name of the for the president, mr. to be freed back. it is now, it is the to ration way you can see they are criminal intimates. now you've got a bad reminder. a lot of the people that we be carrying out the b s by these people come from under privileged communities. we have them on a policy and unemployment here in south africa. you can see that what people walking in the shop stealing basic items in many cases, low the baby and items of the night. so there was now in the, in the midst of opportunity, the criminality. people taking advantage of the situation,
10:47 pm
young children involved in the losing elderly people as well. so there was some incitement from mackenzie initially mobilizing support is sharing support is on, in terms of the retreat some of these videos, what people were anything putting more people to do the same thing in the name of but it's not walk into a complete chaotic situation. where there are different motivations that play and that was our correspondent christine, whether it reporting from cape town. the us to note there is there a one richard branson i'll be evaluating the customer space flight experience. well that was sir richard branson on sunday ahead of that maiden flight to the edge of space in his virgin galactic unity space plain branson and 5 crewmates splashed it all from the mother ship at 3 times the speed of sound and reached an altitude of 86 kilometers above the gray. all of that was a picture perfect,
10:48 pm
landing 100 in one our spaceports in the us state of new mexico. branson is passenger number one, as you heard tickets for future passengers. i cost about a quarter of a $1000000.00 just to experience a few minutes. 0 g branson is one of 3 billionaires along with the amazon family, jeff bezos, and most buying to usher and a new era, a private commercial space travel branch and got to space 1st, but he insists it's not a race. i don't know. i've said this so many times, it really wasn't erase. yeah, that were just delighted that everything went so when tacitly, well we wish jeff the absolute best and his the people are getting up within during his flight or more now when bringing keep counseling, he's editor of the spacing these websites,
10:49 pm
nasa watch dot com. he's also a veteran of nasa. he joins me now from washington. d. c. keith, it's good to see you again. what did you think yesterday when you were probably watching, like the rest of us watching this on television and saw him go to the edge of space in his space point? well, i mean, as a person i, when do i get to go? i mean, i've had the training, i've done the center of each month and the hero gravity stuff. and quite frankly, as a senior citizen, i went through with flying colors. anybody can do this. the issue is, as you mentioned, it cost a little bit of money, right? now, you know it's kind of interesting. you're asking me the billionaire question, these are branson isn't the 1st 1000000000 here to go into space. charles to moni has been to the international space station twice. he's a billionaire and a half a dozen other people with net values of 100000000 each. so this isn't the 1st time a rich person is going to space will be the last. but you know, as you'll probably be asking me to bit, where does it go?
10:50 pm
the 1st people to do something unusual, usually have something unusual about themselves where they're skilled. in this case it's wealth. are going to say if you're retired and you want to go up there, maybe they'll offer you a senior citizens are retired discount. i don't know. you have to ask sir richard branson about that. but let me ask you, what does this represent moving forward? can we say that yesterday we'll go down in the history books as the beginning of commercialized space, travel space tourism? well, it depends. you know where he stand depends where you sit technically dennis tito bought a see almost 20 years ago and like i said, half a dozen so all the people have as well. but that was one of the things that a russian spacecraft there were governments involved and so forth. this white, however richard branson and his company have built the space, got themselves from scratch, they funded it themselves. and so now you've got a space point space, space line, if you will, there you can actually buy a ticket,
10:51 pm
or if of course you've got the money, hundreds of people who bought these tickets. so as soon as they get a few other things fixed in terms of the, the, the, the space flight experience, you're going to see this become a regular thing. course at the same time blue origin would your basis is going to be launching their vehicle with people in less than a week. so, you know, it goes from a couple people to a bunch of people to, if it works, a lot of people, well, you, i mean, this is about economies of scale, right? i was watching the mother ship and the space plane yesterday. and i, you know, if you, let's say you produced 100 of these, you could, in theory, have one take off from spaceport there in new mexico every hour carrying passengers up with me. what's not really a right exactly as the thing is now this, this whole thing is re usable. so it's usually just the fuel the engine at. so you invest a lot of money to do it the 1st time, but then the next 10th and twenty's and $100.00 time,
10:52 pm
it's just buying fuel. and you'll find, for example, that with the blue origin ship, again, they just reuse everything space x is building already using reusable rockets in their building a larger starship, which not only will be able to take people into space and maybe the moon, but it may be able to do what's called a sub barbara to hop, where you go from, you know, london to being in 40 minutes clean to say rocket. and again, just reuse it and you're just, you only get up like you, if you've ever been on the airplane, they put the fuel in the plane. it doesn't cost for the $200.00 or few $1000.00 gets reused again and again. but the trick, you know, here's the tricky, you can ask me this. these 3 people know be up there, billionaires got to be 1000000000 years goes, they go business and they figured out how to get customers to buy their, their products, and then get more customers. and you end up with money, so these guys are just, you know, some people say throwing their money into the, when there's some smart behind this, or it'll work out when finance, you know,
10:53 pm
we don't. yeah we, we don't know that it's looking good right now. i was wondering why, why hasn't the airline industry to, you know, today been able to tap into this technology so that we can fly, let's say, from london to new york. you know, with one of these really high altitude flights. and let's say 2 hours, maybe kind of like the concord, you know, $3.00. i mean, why are we there yet? well, the concord lee flew for a long time because it had a lot of government assistance. and of course, richard branch does own an airline. it's been active. he has an a company that launches on may rockets into space with one of his old airliners. and in some cases, sometimes to change the industry, you have to reinvent it. and right now, you know, the commercial airline industry has very good applying a lot of people and people aren't in a big hurry. but you know, there's millions of millionaires out there who will pay for this privilege. and if you look back at how we align started, yeah, you know, this is sort of build the trash talk thing that we've been talking about. well,
10:54 pm
back in the, you know, century ago you had the airlines starting up with one trip or t n. m. and they were sort of brash about these things and their flights were expensive, but then somebody figured out how to do it cheaper now you and i fly without thinking about it. and i'm pretty sure we'll forget a lot of this rich guy thing. what would you say then, where are we at the stage, maybe of like the white brothers in the asian? or are we further along than that? i mean, if you want to draw the parallels there, know, and yes, i mean, believe we stand the shoulders of giants, the wright brothers being some of the original. so, you know, coming up with new technologies, now you're building on things that we know to work. and in the case of these 3 companies, they've put it together in a way that the government space agencies, for one reason or another really never had an incentive to do so they're just learning from the people came before them and the people before them. and so, but again, the trick is, you know, if it's a commercial entity, you've got to figure a way to be efficient and safe and, you know, find
10:55 pm
a way that the money is going to come in see reinvested it. and, you know, there's many examples of technologies that have started off like the real express. why do i need it there overnight? i just finished something today. i mean, it's like, you can't live without it now. that's right, that's right. well, if you, if you get that senior citizen discount for your flight, the outer space, let us know. keep telling as always, keep your classic ok, i will do that. we'll do that. good talk with you keith. thank you. the finally, tonight, a wedding anniversary that not many couples will get to celebrate. the former us president jimmy carter and his wife, rosalind held a gathering this weekend to mark 75 years of marriage among the well wishers who made the journey to the carter's home town. the plains georgia were building hillary clinton hands at 96. carter is the oldest living, former us president. he and rosalind also hold the record for the longest married presidential couple in american history. wow. and it's wonderful. well,
10:56 pm

10:58 pm
councils new president show me shows embarked on a ground breaking mission. i have a clear ga, to make you the 1st time to try to join us lennox by 2015 but not all member states supported and some persuasion is requires a surprising glimpse into the very heart of power. negotiations lines the flattering incentives, but best laid plans often go astray who will win the game of diplomatic poker. the entry power plays and the lines is behind the scenes of the climate summit starts august, 5th on dw,
10:59 pm
that we will get back love and respect. ah,
11:00 pm
ah ah ah, this is the w news live from berlin tonight, anti government protests in cuba, the biggest in decades, thousands take to the streets to protest shortages and rising prices. the communist regime is pointing the finger at the united states, but the protesters, they're not by also coming up tonight, anger and the rest in south africa, the deadly violins, and widespread looting after authorities. but former president jacob zoom behind barnes and the former soviet republic of georgia. a photo journalist found dead in his home in parliament scuffles as opposition. lawmakers accused the government of
11:01 pm
failing to protect reporters. ah, i grant golf. it's good to have you with us. we start tonight in cuba with the largest anti government protest, seeing there in nearly 30 years, thousands of people are voicing their anger against the communist regime for rated over food shortages, rising prices, and the lack of cobra. 1900 vaccines. both the united states and the european union are urging the cuban government to listen to the protesters demands. but havana is blaming washington instead. yeah, they are crying out for freedom in the streets of a van of the greatest show just content with the socialist government since the 1990s. like that in the trigger for this project,
11:02 pm
the desperate economic situation right now the country is suffering from food shortages. we're here because of the repression of the people. they are starving us to death. havana is collapsing. we have no homes, nothing. now the police arrive and they begin to drag off people in the crowd, the arrest and the violence only makes it demonstrated angry. we are not afraid, they cry out the security beat me and my daughter a child. they beat us just because we were walking down the street. the supporters of the government had been avenue streets to president miguel diaz can now himself lead. this rally was organized quickly in a town outside havana, where the anti government protest began. early on sunday we came here to show it
11:03 pm
together with the revolutionaries of this town. but the streets belonged to us with the president, encouraging, supported to mobilize against the pony. there were ugly confrontations here revolutionary sit, tight opposition, protest to the cubans who were here. we had never going to give up this revolution . never the communist regime, his root since 1959, it survived the fall of the soviet union. and the depth of it found the fidel castro. now would its, again be challenged on so lot like these show it is unlikely to go without a fight or they want to pull it. now, monica roberto cabrera. she is a cuban journalist when it gets good to have you on the program that we're hearing from the white house in the us in a statement that these protests appear to have been spontaneous. what's your take
11:04 pm
on there? well, thank you for having me. i will started my saying that it is the 1st time in 60 years so sharp, popular in huge demonstration of social breast. it was a nationwide, i mean we started to cooperate from the, on the 1st row this that it was in the, in the west of the island. and then through social media you can see how there was then at least one demonstration in every province of the, of the country. so it was re nationwide and even even the island, the island of use that is our island also have some money to stations on the demonstrations. and monica mean, it seems on the outside. it seems surprising when we, you know,
11:05 pm
that these protests, in part, over the lack of access to a cobit 19 that seen, and we know that cuba has developed its own vaccine. i mean, how do you explain that shortage? well, i would say that is actually not a single cause. the grass is caused by an accumulation of situation. i condition that is, that didn't start even with the, with the, with the pandemic. of course, worse and the worsening of this situation with the co with 19 is a fact. it's a trigger is i would say this more about food shortages, lack of solar and or treaty people. these people are doing our lines to have access to, to food and basic needs and also pain in their currency. they don't have what's happening with the back in cuba is developing 5 koby vaccine
11:06 pm
candidates. and actually they just have approve the 1st one as in itself and at least 2026 percent of the population has received so far. at least one, those of one of these candidates and then the percentage is fully back. there's like i said, inches and also the fact that they were in the actual vaccines. but rather, roy, back then let me ask you before you another time president miguel diaz can now he blames the united states for being behind these protest. saying that the u. s. trade embargo has made life harder for cubans. is there any truth in that? well, actually not only him, the united states itself acknowledge that the, that the propose,
11:07 pm
the purpose of the embargo is to cause social impressed on the spirit in the human population until overthrown the human regime by, by this mean. so what happens is that q and people is also tired of hearing that the embargo use of the, of the government, just an alibi or cues for me is it's bad decisions in the, in the management of the country, which is also true. people are eager for, for freedom of, of the, for economy, freedom, boys, aggression freedom. so i would say it is hard to say that is only one cause produced on breast ok. cuban journalists, monica really, beryl cobra. want to, we appreciate your time in your insights tonight. thank you. thank you for having me. good night. but tonight,
