european. crisis. human rights for their own countries. it is a gross violation of human rights to return. i should not be arbitrarily deprive the right to return to my home country.
2:01 pm
welcome to the program 1st the european medicines agencies. is possibly linked to cases of unusual blood clots and that it should be listed as a very rare side effect of the vaccine. takes up the story. well the economy has confirmed that there is a very possible link to red types of blood clots with platelets what they say is that they think this could possibly be a response to the astra zeneca job but they haven't been able to specifically pinpoint but they think that i mean response could be something similar to a new response that's known for a drug called heparin which is a blood thinning drug that essentially interacts with aborting the body produces antibodies producing extra platelets and not causes blood clots now what they said
2:02 pm
is they investigated $62.00 cases over brain blood clotting and also a food $24.00 cases of this over the abdominal area or. bleeding in the stomach area and said of those cases 18 had to be fatal the majority of cases were said to be in women under the age of 16 with symptoms presenting within 2 weeks of receiving the asters and they could jab despite. the e.m.a.'s stands by the fact that astra zeneca is a safe vaccine with the benefits of that job out weighing the risks the benefits of the astra zeneca vaccine in preventing qubit 19 outweigh the risks of trying to fix the proof after an very in-depth analysis has concluded that future cases of unusual blood. following vaccination with the astra zeneca vaccine
2:03 pm
should be listed as. to facts of the vaccine new advice will be given out to those patients as well as those who are saving the astra zeneca job but if they show specific symptoms within a 2 week period that they should seek medical advice those symptoms include if they have persistent ted takes if there's a shortness of breath or even if they. perhaps swelling in their legs now it's not clear whether the cases that were reviewed by the safety committee include 2 deaths that are being investigated here in france the lawyer representing 2 families says that what they want is own says. they want to understand the investigation has been launched the autopsy has been requested and done the question for the moment is to find out if it was caused by the vaccine itself or by the way it was injected but today it seems highly likely that a link exists between the astra zeneca jab and occurrence of the thrombosis we want
2:04 pm
to understand what happened and afterwards to find those responsible who already there have been a number of questions over the safety and the efficacy of astra zeneca we know already here in france as well as in germany and in norway the jab is now only being recommended to individuals in all age groups and it's also been announced on wednesday in the u.k. that under thirty's will be offered an alternative job to astra zeneca as those concerns over safety and this possible link to red blood clots continues what will be interesting now is what decisions if any national health regulators take as a result of this new information by the e m a we know already that the concern over astra zeneca has meant that people are not turning up for their appointments here in france for the job the mayor of color saying that over the weekend hundreds of appointments were missed with hundreds and hundreds of doses unused because of
2:05 pm
a sense of panic over this particular vaccine. the astra zeneca says it is working to establish the exact causes of the blood clots and the head of public health medicine of britain's exeter university says risk groups should find an alternative vaccine but that it's always better to be inoculated. if you get covert 1000 disease you're also likely to get caught so we act on what we know and what we know is that in the younger age group below 30 the risk of getting this highly unusual on unexpected clots increases slightly so we are going to modify what we do by saying ok in the under 30 year olds we will give you an alternative vaccine obviously when you have given many many millions of vaccine doses it is only then do you start to pick up a trend or a pattern if there is one but overall i hope and i pray that there won't be any
2:06 pm
untoward effects from any of the vaccines and to be honest i have looked at all the vaccines and by the time they're passed the test of independence scrutineers they're good they're safe and they save lives compared to call that $900.00 disease it is much better to be immunized and i've also spoken to a top raji professor who travel to china with the world health organization to probe the origins of the pandemic donagh wire told r.t. is going underground that it's been hard to get to the truth for many reasons you can watch the full interview on r.t. dot com. what did you find because as far as though we've seen in the media it's kind of inconclusive you can't even conclude it came from china clearly it's inconclusive i mean it was easy we wouldn't have had to go there in the 1st place of course this is terribly complex of the science is complex that politics is complex but look we went through a large amount of data provided by the chinese you know
2:07 pm
a number of different areas and made a number of conclusions really about what further work needed to be done clearly we can figure out a patient 0 if you like or 'd virus ciro but we've got to go a long way to planning what needs to be done did any of the authorities in china say you shouldn't mean womb you should be in italy given that without the bodies were circulating in italy in september of 2019 way before. i mean there's no doubt the virus exploded in with that and there's no question about that now the issue is was the virus circulating in other parts of the world around that time or even a bit before and yes there is evidence mutually it's a bit from spain or some from france or some from the united kingdom and what did you feel when reportedly you weren't given some of the data you wanted i mean have you got this rule patient into 174 covert patients from december 21000 the you are requesting that strives to look through
2:08 pm
a number of things we are such chinese side to do before we got there including going back to looking through the last couple of months before december trying to identify potential cases they might have missed and we insisted on the work being done and they did it and they presented that work there were of course only there for a short period of time so not all the darter that we would normally ask for in this sort of outbreak investigation was given to us the end but the data is continuing to come forward. x. president biden's migration policy is once again under fire this time over the revelation that 2 wanted terrorists were detained on the southern border u.s. border protection agency give details in a news release which was swiftly withdrawn. u.s. border patrol agents assigned to they are central sector and arrested to yemen a man within the last 2 months that's where identified on the terrorism watch list . opens across this forest saves others more trouble brewing on the us mexico
2:09 pm
border than for president biden. and did among the surge of migrants illegally crossing the u.s. border and being detained we now find out that among those who were detained were 2 yemeni men who were on the terrorism watch list now white house spokesperson jen psaki says this is a very uncommon occurrence certainly does not happen frequently however there is quite a bit of concern being raised in the u.s. media take a listen. to her tell us human traffickers and no terrorists are all trying to take advantage of biden so open borders president biden strecche list bowed to security policies continue to put americans across the country in danger enough is enough it's time for the biden administration to get serious about stopping the search. now it's also important to note that the notice about this happening
2:10 pm
on the website of the u.s. border patrol has been removed apparently a report about the 2 potential terrorists individuals that were flagged and put on a terrorism watch list that the information about them being detained at the u.s. border has been removed from the website of the u.s. border patrol on the grounds that the information in the story is somehow a violation or in danger is national security now at this point many are raising concerns we're now seeing a 15 year high in migrants crossing the u.s. border with 171000 individuals crossing the u.s. border in march at this point we have the biden administration announcing that it's reviewing different options to deal with the crisis and one of the options they're reviewing is continuing the construction of donald trump's the wall take a listen the president has communicated quite clearly his decision for the emergency to trigger the devotion of department of defense funds to the
2:11 pm
construction of the bootable is ended but that leaves room to make decisions as the administration has parts of the administration in particular that is over the will need renovation particular projects that need to be finished now viewers will recall that when donald trump began building the wall the democrats fought against him pretty hard they declared the wall was immoral that it was racist and they shut down the government for 35 days to prevent funding from being allocated for this wall let's review what happened oh isn't enron let me it's not who we are as a nation 20 time show called for i will shut down the government if i don't get my will none of us if you want to know something you've said ok you want to put them i said i'll take i was a prosecutor for many years and including the attorney general california i specialize in transnational criminal or his am that's and then wind all stopped them. now at this point
2:12 pm
a mid in upsurge of migrants crossing the us border including potential terrorists to individuals on the f.b.i. terrorism watch list at that point we now have a situation where democrats are possibly considering measures they once declared when donald trump proposed them and put them forward to be immoral quite an interesting turn of events so he has time for getting us up to speed on that kind of more pain in new york. thanks to jobs lost savings run out and depression just some of the effects on the 10s of thousands of australians stranded abroad for months by one of the world's strictest lockdowns well now one group filed a human rights complaint with the united nations over their country's continued refusal to that their own citizens come home and say the country's travel cap means that many still can't return up 240000 remain abroad according to the government although there are fears the real figures are far higher 5000 to listed as
2:13 pm
vulnerable we've been speaking to one australian stranded in russia. originally up until. about october last year i was still actively trying to get on them since october i've largely given up my attempt to get to get back to my country because the restrictions is taking place make it impossible for me to buy a ticket even if i even if i am i'm looking at paying maybe $10000.00 u.s. dollars upwards and then there's the flight assistance package which the government . offices but all of those flights only leave from places like germany and paris and someone like me if i was to leave there russia and then go to paris if i was to contract cope with it i wouldn't be eligible for that flight home because they only take. test negative 2 to carve it on the fly so if i did that i could just be stranded somewhere else completely and i would be unable to even get back to russia
2:14 pm
if that was the case. prime minister scott morrison has pledged to bring many if not all of those stranded home by last christmas but james says the ongoing situation is simply unacceptable. says in my post point that i should not be all the terribly deprived the right to return to my home country. the syrian government has used the biosecurity act which is something to explain away that kind of it is an international disaster and that's why we on allowed to return home but now that is a year all these excuses of war then there's no reason why we shouldn't be able to get up get back this is a gross violation of all surrenders trillions human rights. here without say all the way concern over possible kobe the facts seem possible it says the world health organization once again says the system could lead to social discrimination or is it a way out we'll discuss that next after the break. one
2:15 pm
else seems wrong. to me. yet to stamp out these days because as a kid and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. the world is driven by a dream shaped by those great. dares
2:16 pm
thinks. we can ask. welcome back now the world health organizations reiterated his concerns at the idea of introducing a covert vaccine passport it's highlighted the uncertainties surrounding post vaccine viral transmission and social inequality risks we would not like to see the vaccination passport as a requirement for entry or exit because we're not certain a distaste of the vaccine prevents transmission there are all those other questions apart from the question of discrimination against the people who are not able to have the vaccine for one reason or another ok live now to roger k.
2:17 pm
who's founder and president of and point technologies associates also with us is political commentator stephen both who's a former european parliament and pay and martin called office professor of medicine at harvard medical school gentlemen welcome to the program stephen 1st of all to you we've had passports for centuries we also have to get malaria vaccines we also have to get visas what will be the problem of adding one more document. because this is not just like being called a person of a state or a country which is what a passport is about and when you get a vaccine it hasn't in the past prevented you from going to other countries unless you look at the example of the united states in the 18 hundreds and in new orleans where people were not allowed to leave new orleans because of yellow fever what we're looking at here is a wholly different scenario which would apply globally where corporations are able
2:18 pm
to suggest that you can't fly out of countries get on boats or even go on the eurotunnel from the united kingdom to france and this would be basically at through a threat to freedom civil liberties and off in some cases the health of individuals as well and i think the world health organizations argument that this is discriminate tree is absolutely correct for once and we should be very very careful and very very wary of those people promoting this particular philosophy what the u.s. white house doesn't want them to be mandatory but want to specs if they're not mandatory that makes them largely useless unless everybody's on the same page here it almost feels unworkable how we're going to get all countries to agree on what the criteria is to make these things valid. well i don't know about all countries big legacy each country has to make its own sort of determination here but there is a general mechanism to encourage this which is that people who do
2:19 pm
carry the passport it there is such a thing the israelis for example done pretty good job of it and they've actually reduced their infection level quite dramatically during all this. but if in fact people do comply they're allowed to do certain things and i think people will see that as a privilege not a well listen you know for example we have in schools if you don't have certain vaccinations you can't go to school and so he was there well if we need our children go to school so i guess will sacrifice and get the vaccination there are certain exceptions but generally the idea is to encourage mass vaccination so that we can get through this as a herd and with interesting to me about it is that we're talking about all of humanity here at this point and very rarely do people talk about the global population as one thing but homo sapiens that bank is one thing even if there are a lot of different nations and political systems and so on and so as we look at
2:20 pm
this guy or as and the problem of how to stamp it out it really is kind of like a fire you have to put it up completely in order to be safe and to do that you need everyone to cooperate and so anything that encourages cooperation is something ought to be promoted and i applaud private organizations for example who say you can't commit you know unless you can prove that you've been vaccinated because you know we're going to exercise our right to protect ourselves and our patron professor called off is there a problem in that when we call it a vaccine possible because the w.h.o. points out that's not necessarily a guarantee of non transmissibility of heaven infection in hell but at the have a covert free possible whereby you can pray to god antibodies for whatever reason they have vaccination all previous exposure but the. the better i would be so i'll just ask him professor called offer his thought oh by all means so vaccine passed close are a very bad idea for public health for
2:21 pm
a few different reasons one is that it will sort of encourage or force younger very low risk people especially in the. western world to get the vaccine before last the flu and poor alter people saw by doing the fear will actually increase the amount of death we will relinquish no unnecessary death so that's one reason why a vaccine passed with a variable. for public health another reason is that public health one of the principles of public health is trust and to make it a curse of vaccine passport will reduce trust in the public health authorities and in vaccines not only for corporate vaccines but for other types of a scenes as well and i have worked on vaccines for a couple of decades and what we have done is we have sort of worked hard to increase confidence in vaccinations so the people you know there measles vaccine
2:22 pm
and their polio vaccines and so on and people are pushing for a vaccine path for a port there they are much more dangerous to these efforts than the the very small group of so called anti vaccinators and in my view of those who are pushing for vaccine passports they have been you and you about this. stephen if it's a question of data privacy and giving up to him too much information when people apply for visas in many countries some of those questionnaires and they want to go right back into your personal history and that will sort today we can have q are codes on our phones surely that secure enough for most people if it means opening borders getting economies moving again. yes i mean these are very simple arguments that people put forward we have the scientific capability to be able to assess individuals of whether they have a vaccine or not but it goes back to a fundamental principle and that principle is should we allow our governments to be able to dictate based on a person's biology whether they will be able to have access to services access to
2:23 pm
our freedom of movement not only outside of the country but also with then and if there are those who argue that we can trust governments my argument is history shown as overwise in the past scientists try to suggest that they could identify who criminals are by the size of their foreheads we saw the whole pot murder people in cambodia simply because they were too intelligent hitler made decisions about whether people had access to services if they were disabled or not now i'm not suggesting that we have yet got that level of governments who would do those sort of things but in your previous article on the show you saw what australia did 240000 of its own people by not allowing them to come into the country by using the the the biosecurity act how long before governments use similar types of legislation to discriminate between people and of course we already know there is
2:24 pm
a substantial percentage of a minority of people look to fight between 5 and 10 percent of people who cannot have the vaccine for whatever reason what about the criminality aspect of this because technologically if unless everybody agrees on how they're going to do this for every type of official document you need there's going to be one group of people that's going to be able to want to sell fake passports but this is a public health issue this isn't just somebody trying to go abroad this is potentially somebody who's infected with a deadly disease with a fake document how do you make it robust. well there are digital technologies that . you're looking. that you can you can tie a visual application for example to national institutes of health data there are ways to make it secure but you can't. stop entirely any kind of forgery at times i think i think that one of the things in this are you we might be even saying that
2:25 pm
you know this doesn't have to be 100 percent perfect you have to be pretty perfect to get for example a herd immunity you get upward of 70 percent of the population you know ocular did then you know you're getting you're getting pretty good result and people can move around. and i think i think that the fears of. loss of personal freedom are bit overblown. you know people right now are really untreated united states is a lot of places you can't go you can't go in certain ways you know you have to do certain protocols in order to go in certain places so there's a lot of of loss of freedom that we're experiencing right now what we're really trying to do is open up freedom by getting people to knock elated against the disease and i agree that for example if you could prove that you have any bodies from your own natural immunity that you had a disease that should be just as good as having been inoculated and perhaps some of these nuances can be worked out in the in the final program but i think the idea of
2:26 pm
promoting general vaccination among the population is a really good one and if we're going to get through this as a population and not just the u.s. population but the worldwide population that everyone needs to be touched one way or the other about and maybe not everyone but it could be let's say 80 percent and but a lot of ok professor if after year of the world being stuck where they are and there is that impatience to get moving again this isn't just people wanted to go on their summer holidays this is business being able to be conducted for the world the cultures of the world's economy to get back to normal if not a vaccine possible to recut of it for a possible what's the other option. well the worst fear is that all the people need to get this vaccine to be protected and as a very important i was encouraged that basically in perth where we do the opposite where both people suspicious of the vaccines or. but now when somebody is
2:27 pm
vaccinated they are they have very good protection for the vi scene so there's no reason for them to try to a demand that other people should be have to be vaccinated and it's correct that we don't need 100 percent immune in order to have a herd immunity so the best way to resist as many people of rice as possible is to skip the. vaccine path where it was just have the contrary effect more suspicious because this course of and if we look at the current vaccines. and stuff i see in measles vaccine polio vaccine and so on and previously smallpox vaccine when we had better be sure those were all accomplished with high we went we had high coverage of the vice nations without these by seen passports by with vaccine path but it's going to be very much harder to get people vaccinated and also to get the right people of a similar because of the older people there would be vaccinated and for every young people who are now getting the vaccine it means that
2:28 pm
a mother or an all or person is not getting it and that's going to lead to more. unnecessary deaths or they seem perth but is was unethical and more immoral ok we're going to leave it there gentlemen what a case stephen wolfram professor martin called of really appreciate you taking the time to talk to us on this tonight thanks a lot thank you and that's the way it looks from moscow so farther south thanks for watching i'm colleen bray i'll have your next r.t. update in around 32 minutes here.
2:29 pm
i'm action or taxi and you're watching a world health day 2021 knockdown going underground as official global coronavirus death tolls reach 3000000 in part 2 we'll investigate whether covert has revealed an imminent implosion of a new liberal make a machine 1st let's go straight to sydney australia to speak with one of the 13 who have returned from mohan after w n 2 investigation into how coronavirus began and joining me now is professor dominic to thank you so much you have perfessor for coming on the show what what did you find because as far as there we've seen in the media it's kind of
2:30 pm
inconclusive you can't even conclude it came from china clearly it's inconclusive the minister was put together in the 1st place of course so this is terribly complex of the science is complex the politics is complex but look we went through a lurch amount of data provided by the chinese you know a number of different areas and made a number of conclusions really about what further work needed to be done clearly we can figure out 0 if you like. ready. but we've got to go a long way to planning what they say maybe are your views are shared by the other 12 members of your team when we were around i don't know because the headlines it made your visit in mainstream media in nato countries was the us c.d.c. former boss saying that covert 19 escaped from china's institute of. allergy rover redfield saying that made headlines everywhere yes it did.
