3:00 pm
as quite easily. to keep in mind. more than half the country's population. lives in argentina with the russians soaring in. california. from a bunch of drugs which comprise around 10 of the us states. on the program american president joe biden. department with.
3:01 pm
veterans with a track record of. your art team the lines you know me hello and welcome to the news. russia is expert. vaccination program the aim is to get 60 percent of the population inoculated this year with more in the must rule out for tens of millions of people. the vaccination point here is up and running and as you can see people are lining up for the not kill ation i think there are at least a few dozen here but before i give you a quick tour around here let me take a moment and just to point out that this is probably the nicest place in moscow
3:02 pm
right now to take a jap i mean after all this is a russia's iconic most famous department store right in the heart of russia's capital now let's get inside. all right we're in it so this is the reception desk morning and this is where you need to show your passport and that's about all you need to do to get a vaccine here the entire procedure should take around 45 minutes so 1st doctors need to verify you're in good health you're feeling well and then if you're on qualify for the you not collation then you should follow to that room over there i'm fine i just have an h. a throat perhaps you just need to drink some water yeah i'll read you have i feel better now. or have you already thought about how your life will change once you develop antibodies. i hope it will change because i work in a museum we have lots of visitors so i hope my life will get better. i thought it
3:03 pm
was hurts more after the injection because this vaccine is supposed to be more serious than a flu job but i feel no difference it's just like every of the scheldt history i decided to get the job a while ago i was just waiting for the opportunity honestly i should have been inoculated in the local clinic but i just wanted to speed up the process because i want to be immune as quickly as possible. you know my husband and my friends took the job i have no reservations so i want to get it as soon as possible i think the more people that get it the greater impact that situation will have in the end this is where they are getting the vaccines to the people and the lady over here and she's just getting ready to receive a vaccine countries they're just going to say they need see i didn't know what show was day yet which you know they are either she's about to get the vaccine but she is. if you see asked about that by the way this metal box over here at this is
3:04 pm
where all the doses are being kept the temperature is minus 35 degrees celsius and that's what you need for a spot nicky by the way there are 2 vaccines that are available in russia right now 1st one called sputnik b. then there is another one called epi corona both are developed by russian scientists according to russia's health care officials the main goal right now is to develop herd immunity before the next fall because the jewish certainly it would love to have everyone get the shot and thus have no problem so far we have not been able to me nice people on such a scale from any type of infection but the fact that we will be able to get 60 percent of the overall population in the uk you late it in just the 1st year is a big achievement mass vaccination started in russia last december and according to those in charge are rolling. the jobs there are over 1000000 people here have been already taken
3:05 pm
a job health care and essential workers were the 1st to receive the vaccine and now they're trying to expand the list to get more and more people involved. as healthcare minister said that the country is planning to run public scene distribution in other regions by another 2000000 doses of spot meat. duction the russian vaccine is being rubbed to meet global we look at who is ordering later in the program. health officials in california are warning providers against using a bunch of coded vaccines from the. after a series of allergic reactions in america's most populous state or u.s. correspondent up and tell us more. vaccinations are in full swing in the state of california but from what we understand at this point the mcgurn of vaccine injections they are being halted and this is due to higher than usual adverse
3:06 pm
effects take a listen to what's going on in california fewer than 10 individuals required medical attention over the span of 24 hours we are recommending that provides use of that and they build accident in 3 and pulls the administration of vaccines until the investigation by the centers for disease control and prevention food and drug administration madonna and the state is complete now all the incidents are said to have happened at the same community clinic and they are reportedly this clinic was closed for several hours after adverse reactions to the vaccine now what we're hearing from the state epidemiologist of california is saying that less data exists on adverse reactions to the under in a vaccine and that modern a is now reviewing the incident but it is rare for vaccines to trigger a serious side effects now it's important to note that back in december there was an incident in boston where a physician he received the vaccine and within minutes started having adverse
3:07 pm
health effects allergic reactions that was back in boston so that incident is being looked into so when it comes to the state of california the numbers are worth looking at we've got 2900000 cases of coded 193-3392 deaths so far daily deaths are in the hundreds from covert 19 this is how hospitals are dealing with it. i mean there are 21 years that i've seen more people passed away last week. in the past couple of weeks really than i'd almost hate combined in all of my career as a nurse you just see them die they just die and they fight dying and it's. so sad.
3:08 pm
yes i'm angry yes i'm upset but the only thing that we can do is 'd give them the reality of the situation which is that there is no room inside the hospital that we are making tens outside the hospital. now millions of americans are quite anxious for this pandemic to reach its conclusion so the vaccine is believed to be very key in that so basically any news about adverse of facts or allergic reactions to the vaccine is something people take very seriously but at the moment vaccinations are in progress not just in california but around the country many hoping that things in the united states can start to move toward some notion of normality you know just to stay with this story
3:09 pm
i spoke with infectious disease specialist william schaffner he said the cluster of allergic reactions in california to the maternal vaccine has to be fully investigated. we know that these m. oron a back scenes are associated with more alert tick reactions the last number i saw from the c.d.c. was he leavens such reactions for every 1000000 doses so still rather rare but a grouping in one clinic that deserves further investigation did something unusual happen in that clinic or wasn't deede it that vaccines reported adverse reactions gives pause to some people but i think by and large 'd the vaccines have been shown to be safe and are wonderfully effective so across the country at the present time we have more demand than we have vaccines and so our program
3:10 pm
is rolling out and becoming more efficient we're trying to vaccinate more people more quickly. let's bring you a related story to the involving a woman suffering convolve sions allegedly after receiving a coronavirus job in the u.s. it's caused widespread shock and a warning some of you may find the following images disturbing brant greiner now he is a resident of louisiana he filmed his mother after she had apparently received the pfizer job in early january he claims she hadn't suffered from any serious health issues before taking the job mr greiner spoke to r.t. . she said the day afterwards she woke up with a headache and she's had a headache every day since until today today's the 1st day she has had 88 but she started noticing the seizure like movements in early your left leg 1st and it was 3
3:11 pm
days afterwards and she was admitted to the hospital before days with she had no control over her legs when she was trying to walk doctors said they think it's the medals and the vaccine. is causing her to have the neurological reaction a statement from pfizer sentencing that it's launched in vesa geisha but have not been able to confirm at this stage what happened no it's not the 1st time concerns have been raised over the safety of big job norway is currently investigating the deaths of dozens of elderly people who had recently received the follies or like seen brunt of the response he received to his video suggests his mother's case isn't you nick. i've heard of other cases since i shared the video on facebook i had. thousands and thousands of people message me comment an average myself personally i haven't read all the messages but i read hundreds of them myself personally if people tell me their stories their daughters or sons their mothers or
3:12 pm
you know member members of their family have had reactions share their vaccines our plot of some of whom had a lot of messages that are negative say and this is your mom or you know you're lying or whatever negative comments you know it's it's not really something that are trying to entertain too much i don't know want people wouldn't trust they want a code vaccine to take away kobe's days and get back to normal. a group of researchers in the u.k. have published some alarming new findings on coronavirus patients according to the report one in 8 people hospitalized in britain with cope at 19 related complications within months after being discharged well nearly one 3rd of patients are recovered from the virus or taken back to hospital the study also revealed some severe long term effects of covert including heart problems and diabetes we spoke with one of the scientists behind the study. not only does corn
3:13 pm
a virus. cause death and most people emission but there are clear signals here of associations between medium term effects effect in the lungs affecting the heart affecting the liver and also the kidneys and we need to get better at seeing and stratifying who are the people that we need to act ideally we need kind of our suspension if we have it we need to make sure that we treat underlying conditions and we're monitoring these people to see if they develop and if they do develop for example diabetes or kidney disease we need to do more research to see how that progresses over time. argentina has received the 2nd birch of the sputnik v. vaccine or comes as more countries across latin america opt for the russian arctic over job artie's done your hawkins picks up the story. whatever the science behind
3:14 pm
the covert vaccines other factors are at play politics being a key one it's no surprise that vaccine approval and distribution has been like a parliament divided along party lines countries are mostly sticking to their own before selling all of their neighbors north america and europe have made their own pitch while competing vaccines have been subjected to increase the skepticism scrutiny and smears so it may come for some was a surprise that much of latin america is leaning towards the russian option being the latest to sign up reduced ration of sputnik vaccine in paraguay proved the increasing interest of latin american countries in a safe and effective russian vaccine against coronavirus we expect more countries in the region will also approve it soon and ready to create new partnerships to pool their foods in the fight against the pandemic. joins argentina bolivia and venezuela in placing orders and cuba are in talks to start local production with
3:15 pm
mexico peru and brazil also potential customers yes sputnik viz easy to transport store is also competitively priced but could there be another factor let's face it as far as the neighbors go do it politically north and south america are pretty much like chalk and cheese take venezuela and bolivia pushed into pariah state status over the years or cuba really designated a state sponsor of terror it was a matter of when lot if south american nations would start looking for friendlier countries to hang out with the 1st thing we have to look a here is the blockade against them a lot in american countries in a case of benefit or york and a very limited i can we back in economically in the u.k. back in the american made back in there out of read you can be levied by working in that country. we can think of the the russian companies are far less exposure to us
3:16 pm
punitive measures. in them from us. and increasing the possibility to trade in with partners like venezuela countries traditionally closer to the united states such as mexico or costa rica have already opted for western design vaccines brazil is there on the fence while plans to launch production of sputnik v. are in place regulatory approval as been delayed moscow says it's just a temporary issue in connection with unreliable information that appeared in a number of media outlets about the refusal of an emergency registration for the sport make the vaccine in brazil we clarify that the national health surveillance agency has requested additional information regarding the sputnik the vaccine which will be provided shortly russia plans to expand sputnik v. corp in the region for many countries on the continent it seems like the best
3:17 pm
choice practically and financially and whatever the global politics at play in the upper echelons of power latin american nations agree and a pandemic like none of us have ever witnessed it's protecting the people which comes 1st. naturally these issues are being politicized by many sectors 1st and foremost washington who politicized the distribution of the price of vaccine to the allied countries especially here in latin america but this is of course counterproductive to the interests of the people who are essentially looking to get the cheapest vaccine quickly it and to safeguard their health and improve the health care system of the countries so i think it's to some extent it was inevitable that the distribution of the roxy was going to be politicized by some sectors but i guess this is all to the detriment of the people living here in the continent. with the trumpet ministration leaving the white house you might think there's a brand new team of faces poised to come in and replace them but many of joe
3:18 pm
biden's key cabinet picks well they hark back to the days of his old boss especially when it comes to the u.s. state department is her senior correspondent rough gusta. alex with the old and then with the well even older it seems go ahead and flick through do biden state department nominations you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd slipped into a parallel above the presidency there back well almost all of back from the people who brought you look at tasha feelin libya and the bungled war in syria got stuck into the coup in ukraine and brought relations with russia to what they are now or as the chief in waiting puts it this team behind me they embody my core beliefs that america's strongest when it works with the sellers it's a team that reflects the fact that america is back judging by the team's track record now is a good time for innocent civilians and potential collateral casualties around the
3:19 pm
world to start quaking in their boots because this cabal of liberal bruises seems to have much less compunction about dropping bombs than trump ever did such as mr blinken who believes that the us failed in syria because it didn't destroy it enough in syria we made the opposite error of doing too little without bringing appropriate power to bear no peace could be negotiated much less imposed or how about victoria nuland was her tool it's prefer jets and armies and bombs to take out anything that doesn't fit their picture perfect idea of democracy newlands more widely she gives in with with cookies and smiles and gets you to trust says you have a friend and then says this behind your back. dawood be great i think to
3:20 pm
help glue this thing and to have do you when help glue it and you know you america is strongest when it works with its allies biden said. nuland does that to make sure that america doesn't become too strong and keep those allies guessing about who she's trash talking this stuff or take samantha power now slated to take over america's aid agency machine she's good at anything it's making sure that the u.s. doesn't work with other countries to get things done to the assad regime russia and iran 3 member states behind the conquest of and carnage in aleppo you bear responsibility for these atrocities these are the people who helped bring trump to power they are they are part of what voters grew disenchanted with the and lost wolves the endless deaths the endless failures that again don't expect too
3:21 pm
much from a biden state department in the words of a famous defense secretary if it's foreign policy chances are biden will get it wrong. i think he's been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past 4 decades looks like it's going to be a continuation of a increasingly aggressive us foreign policy that makes sense because that has been the the trajectory that republican and democrat administrations have done over the past several decades and his most recent picks seem to be a continuation of that this is an ongoing thing and that coupled with his his defense department picks a 3rd of whom have major ties to the defense industry all signals are that we're about to see some serious neo-con foreign policy problem is that you have this inertia within us foreign policy and there's 2 parts to the inertia one is just the
3:22 pm
fact that all of the think tanks all of the contractors everyone that is part of the military industrial complex is supporting and promoting these types of these types of aggressive war hawks to the state department and the department of defense but there's also something more sinister at play here is the fact that there's an underlying jingoism that is built into us foreign policy and has been for several decades in this jingoism tells us that the u.s. government the u.s. military can go wherever it wants whenever it wants and kill whomever they wish including civilian casualties and that there can be no negative blowback or consequences for if anyone so much as tries to defend themselves there are mediately a terrorist and when that is the over the underlying thought process and bedrock founding principle of u.s. military and foreign policy it's going to lead to this type of aggressive posture around the world and it has to end. russian opposition activists alexina vali is to
3:23 pm
spend 30 days in pretrial detention here in moscow and he was arrested for parole violation after flying in from germany where he underwent treatment for alleged poisoning igor's adele of more. it took the judge several hours to deliver the verdict to the kremlin critic who came back to russia just yesterday from berlin there he was receiving treatment for what he and some western labs called a poisoning by a military grade nerve agent now alexina valmy he was a pretended at the border checkpoint now the thing is back in 2014 he was found guilty of embezzlement and received a suspended sentence with a probation period now while on probation he was supposed to report on his whereabouts to the authorities but when he fell into a coma and was transferred to the german capital for treatment obviously he couldn't do so but at the end of september last year
3:24 pm
a lexan of ali was released from hospital so the authorities here in russia they expected to hear from him which they didn't this is why they are saying they put him back on the wanted list and this is why they're saying they are demanding that the suspended sentence is swapped for a real one for this opposition figure now this whole detention and this whole process sparked an outcry in the west starting from the secretary the u.s. secretary of state might bump a 0 to the chief of nato u.n. stoltenberg to france and some other european nations all calling on the kremlin to immediately release alexina volley in fact the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov had to answer a few questions about this whole situation during a media conference he held earlier today so here's how he commented on the situation which is no volleys cases got so much international publicity everything
3:25 pm
that happens to the valley regarding his return and attention is the business of law enforcement agencies we are talking about enforcing russian laws if in some other countries the implementation of their own laws is considered to be of secondary importance to achieving some geopolitical goals. this is there are problems in our case law enforcement agencies have made their position clear. so for alexina valley the next hearing issue to take place on the 29th of january and the authorities the prosecution will be looking and will be demanding a real sentence this time. germany hearns condemned the arrest and urge russia to probe not only as alleged poisoning and in turn russian prosecutors have repeated their complaint to berlin but it's failed to provide the necessary data to the russian authorities say they sent 15 illegal requests of those germany complied with the relating to transcripts of interviews with only his wife so moscow is
3:26 pm
still waiting for medical files biomaterials on the german research that led to the novacek diagnosis a spokesman for the russian prosecutor's office expressed doubts that germany and other western countries actually want to get to the bottom of what happened. and get a warning about germany has taken a formal approach responding to russia's requests and in fact has not provided anything which could shed light on the alleged poisoning the well it seems that the clear intention of our foreign colleagues at least to conceal the true circumstances of the incident in order to continue with the unfounded accusations against russia. a promise that the pictures are about to show you are actually from planet earth of the who it might look like it because a deep freeze is taking hold in central asia resulting in some spectacular scenes that these are drawn images from the captured gallery reservoir in catholics this
