7:12 pm
especially assistant nurses having trouble to understand the importance of getting vaccinated. so i understand why a manual micron asked to mandatory vaccinations. otherwise, we won't get through this when we get off for the sake of hospital work, as i angry, their jobs are on the line. if they refuse, unfortunately, i will have to get vaccinated against my will because i love my job. i love my patients and you measures also include the need to show proof of vaccination, more inexpensive, negative test for long distance train travel and visiting restaurants. many peruvians are embracing the challenges, but some worried by my cross suggestion, that mandatory vaccination for all may be necessary. it's a violation of all right. we don't have the right to move around freely for me compulsory vaccination. it's inconceivable. frances joining of
7:13 pm
a european nations like italy and greece, which have already announced mandatory vaccinations for aged care and health workers. up looking to ship them from september. first, mandatory vaccination will apply to both public and private health care professionals. it is unthinkable, for example, for an unvaccinated nurse to care for an amino suppressed cancer patients. the drastic measure is an attempt to find a wave of an occupation fatigue that some countries are witnessing with europe. opening up some politicians, a cautioning that different rules based on immunization status, is the only safe way to motivate those hesitant to get the job. private group like the organization set up by former u. k. prime minister, tony blair, a pushing the government to have a strict or approach where we well, i mean, i just think we got to be careful as we open up the curb. it's not terrible. we've got to live with kind of it for a long time to come. the key thing is to draw

outbreak responses of new zealand and taiwan. it was recently hit by the alpha variant. it hit hard despite the government's expertise in dealing with outbreaks of other diseases like saws running in and out every day. 39 year old mister chan delivers 300 orders a week. the reason copied outbreak and taiwan has brought him more orders. but he has to take more risks since nearly 85 percent of taiwanese population isn't vaccinated. well, this all high. no, i live with my 5 children, my wife and my mother. you asked me if i'm worried about them. of course i am. i had so many children, and i worry that i might get them infected to lose johnny bravo. as a father or 5, he has no choice, but to go out and make money. so i hope the government can offer food delivery drivers, vaccines as soon as possible. but you know,
7:18 pm
we're in contact with so many people doesn't. it's not hundreds every day by the many are still waiting. the vaccination program for high risk groups started rolling in june. so far, just 15 percent of tie ones, 23500000 people have been vaccinated. there isn't enough vaccines portal, you know, we have enough vaccines. can we do mass explanation? that's the 1st layer protection for all of the people. some things like that containing the virus and the insistence on developing domestic vaccines might have delayed high ones vaccine acquisition. and it was our mis judgement last year. not being able to, for seeing that there will be such of actually shortage. and we might have being a bit too confident about what we could do in terms of our own dramatically
7:19 pm
develop the vaccine to taiwanese drug makers. revealed phase to clinical trials in june and applied for emergency use authorization. but their effectiveness still needs to be examined. whether it's applications or not still remains the open question, but at least there's sufficient scientific dade out to think it might be efficacious in such regards. it just to have it approved, in case of need to some we can use it while the town vaccines a wait authorization. the government is trying its best secure, more jobs overseas. so that people like mr. chan no longer need to worry that they and their families could get infected. amanda closer it is, an epidemiologist at the university of taco, wellington,
7:20 pm
what went wrong in taiwan in your opinion? it's been very hard watching time long struggled to contain this very large up for like someone has done so well. so far independent haven't post public health infrastructure as the public responses connections in the south. it's been interesting to see how different ones response has been compared to museums in museums. when we have breaks, we react very swiftly and they just possibly to extinguish them straight away. and sometimes that means going straight into the short, sharp locked down town, on the other hand, has avoided using knocked on as a panoramic response. and that may have kept the break going a little longer than it need. it's a matter of what i find striking when we look at the numbers is that outbreak you
7:21 pm
mention in taiwan. in comparison to new zealand numbers, the spike is really sudden and then tie one manages to bring those numbers back down, but not to the levels new zealand been enjoying the whole way through this pandemic . they've managed to keep the numbers down so low. what's it done? right, i think the most important thing is that you didn't have the right to have the right strategy. and it's elimination strategy. this strategy census population, how we don't tolerate cases in the community. we react to even just one positive case and community by moving to extinguish that outbreak as quickly as possible. that's meant that we've had very few cases when she deaths, health services continue to operate and protect job con me. it's protected us civic
7:22 pm
freedom and lots of things come right just from that initial impulse to protect your population. what i think is also really important to point out is that both countries flow to immunize, which is a problem in taiwan, but not for new zealand. where you can argue that on both sides, actually on the one hand, yes, you doesn't need vaccines. that should be used in classes were still occurring. that should be used in cases where they can immediately save lives . on the other hand, we do feel vulnerable. we know that we get an outbreak. most of our population is still, i'm fascinated, but couldn't, and even more virulent and infectious strain pop up at any time and hit new zealand to that's right. and worried about that. in fact,
7:23 pm
few weeks ago, an australian travel to new zealand, i spent the weekend in wellington on holiday, went that australia and on the monday they started to be on well and tested positive delta barry. now that pissed me during the weekend had visited a large number of places around wellington museums, restaurants, shops will the place actually now watching experience for us. we were waiting to hear whether we got to have a very, very large upgrade. as it happens, we talked last camera difference. that's it has been a warning sign for us of how badly things could go wrong. so the warning signs are there. what is the best way in your opinion then of containing goto, and be covert, but also all of its variance? well, the interesting thing about this pandemic,
7:24 pm
and this is something that we in the asia pacific region. if the panic is control, it can be stopped. we have so many tools in the toolbox. now we have good faxing. we have our public health infrastructure, that's the test and tracing all of those measures. and we have mentions that can keep our community safe, optimizing ventilation, one of those things learning a mock to protect others. supporting people to stay at home when they're sick. we've learned so much in the last 16 months of how to stop his father's. i feel confident that it's not really a question if i can redo it, but all begun to choose to do it. interesting stuff from amanda coltrane, epidemiologist at the university of chicago. wellington, thank you very much for being on the show today. a brief look at some other corona wire stories making headlines. malaysian officials have been forced to temporarily
7:25 pm
close a covert vaccination center after nearly half its worth is tested. positive malaysia is struggling to deal with a surgeon. infections the country recorded 11000 new cases on tuesday. it's most in one day in french president manuel my clause says, getting back. sedated against covert will be made mandatory for all health care staff and other workers who come into contact with loanable patients. it's part of the latest measures to contain the pandemic in france, where the delta barrier was taking hold. that was that part of the program where we put one of the questions to our science, corresponded derek williams. paul, will, manufacturers need to modify my fields to fight variance? this is really just another way of asking whether, sorry to be to will mutate so much that modifying vaccines makes sense. so. so let's approach this question from that angle. the answer is we still don't know,
7:26 pm
but. busy a critical moment experts say will be large numbers of fully vaccinated. people start contracting a serious enough case of cobra, 1900 anyway, to land in the hospital. that's not happening, at least not yet. even if some variance are infecting more vaccinated people than earlier versions of the virus dead in trials, none of them is viewed as what's called an escape variance. in other words, immunity and people who had the disease or who have been vaccinated appears by enlarged to be holding up pretty well. but if that suddenly changes, then, manufacturers will indeed have to tweak vaccines to, to help manage the threat and they're already doing so. the good news is that this isn't a new problem, it's one that we've had to come to grips with in the past. for example,
7:27 pm
with flu viruses and flu vaccines have to be updated regularly because flu viruses evolve really pretty quickly. so the background that we already have in redesigning vaccine fast to meet that constantly evolving thread that will come in handy. now, according to the vaccine alliance, garvey, updating messenger r n a vaccines and bio vector vaccines is still uncharted territory. but it shouldn't prove to steve of the challenge. manufacturers are also saying that they can tweak back seems to provide protection against emerging threats within weeks rather than months and, and trials with tweak vaccines are already going on. but some experts don't think that escape variance will develop. so the question of,
7:28 pm
to what extent will actually need modified vaccines? that still up in the air me, derek williams there and then for one thanks for watching. stay safe. as you again say, ah, the the news, the me, the
