8:02 pm
is they investigated $62.00 cases of brain blood clotting and also a food $24.00 cases of this over the abdominal area or blood bleeding in the stomach area and said of those cases 18 had been fatal now the majority of cases were said to be in women under the age of 16 with symptoms presenting within 2 weeks of receiving the astra zeneca job despite though the a.m.a. 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 problem after an very in-depth analysis has concluded. future cases of unusual blood. following vaccination with the astra zeneca vaccine

should be listed as. defects of the vaccine when you advice will be given out to those to inoculate patients as well as those who are seeking the astra zeneca job that 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 have 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 best gaited here in france the lawyer representing 2 families says the what they want is all. 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
8:04 pm
a link exists between the astra zeneca jap and occurrence of the thrombosis we want to understand what happened and afterward to find those responsible who already there have been a number of questions over the safety and the efficacy of astra zeneca we know we're already hearing frogs as well as in germany and in norway the job is now only being recommended to individuals in 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 d.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 cali over the weekend hundreds of appointments were missed with hundreds and hundreds of
8:05 pm
doses unused because of a sense of panic over this particular vaccine. meanwhile the origin of the pandemic is still under scrutiny we spoke to a top professor who traveled to china with the world health organization to probe the origins of the pandemic dominic dwyer told us on going underground that it has been hard to get to the truth for many reasons. what did you find because as far as where 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 so this is terribly complex of the science is complex the politics is complex but look we went through a large 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
8:06 pm
can't figure out 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 wuhan you should be in italy given their code without the bodies were circulating in italy in september of 2019 way before december i mean there's no doubt the virus exploded in with them 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 and 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 who are requesting. that's true i sort of do a number of things the chinese to do before we got there including going back looking through the last couple of months before december trying to identify
8:07 pm
potential traces not of mist and we insisted on that being done and they did a search and they presented that there were of course only there for a short period of time so no all that we would normally ask for in this sort of upright investigation was given to us then but the doctor is continuing to come forward. president biden's migration policy remains under fire this time over the revelation that 2 men on a terror watch list were detained on the southern border the u.s. border protection agency gave details in a news release which was swiftly withdrawn u.s. border patrol agents assigned to the al central sector and arrested to yemen a man within the last 2 months that's where identified on the terrorism watch list 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
8:08 pm
yemeni men who were on the terrorism watch list now white house spokesperson jen psaki says this is not a common occurrence however there is widespread concern about the security of the united states amid the border surge. cartel suman traffickers and the terrorists are all trying to take advantage of biden so open borders president biden strecche list build a security police 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 senate now what's even more interesting is the report from the border patrol about the detaining of these 2 individuals has been removed from the internet according to the website and those who manage the border patrol that report somehow violated national security but at this point there are many other concerns that we've seen a 15 year high in migrants crossing the u.s.
8:09 pm
border and as this is going on as 171000 people cross the u.s. border in march we now have the biden ministration considering options among the options they are reportedly considering is perhaps continuing the building of trump's border 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 construction of the google is ended but that leaves room to make decisions as the administration as part of the administration in particular is over there will need renovation particular projects that need to be finished 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 $35.00 days to prevent funding from being allocated for this wall let's review what happened ok all is an enron levy it's not who we are as
8:10 pm
a nation 20 times 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. and national criminal ring is a yeah that's and then wind all stopped them now at this point amid 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. a record number of migrants tried to cross america's southern border in march according to homeland security with reports suggesting the massive inflows will continue through to the autumn and on the other side of the frontier in mexico where the situation is even worse refugees are gathering in
8:11 pm
makeshift camps after being rejected by the u.s. . and the fact is i've made it very clear within a 100 days i'm going to send to the united states congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11000000 undocumented people and all of those so-called dreamers those docket kids they're going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship. let them know that we decided to come because the president said that she wanted to he
8:12 pm
not tramways that was separate as. you know it it's something we didn't expect even though the president said to us of course he would hope as he still hasn't done anything. to. please really the story is very complicated it cost us a lot and everything we've been through just to end up here like cats and dogs. it didn't. end up more than was that we can collect the necessities bid by this to provide for our central american brothers who are in need but. i think. these are people that are once again paying the price of politicians in
8:13 pm
that sea you know i think you know who would have won by there it was biden or trample. or you know anyone else either of their respective parties really the same consequence could be seen and we'd see a continuation of the policies that pushed people out north that pushed people from their homes as well as crack out here in the united states is kind of part of the bigger problem in the democratic party i think the democratic party likes to position itself as this kind of alternative to the quote unquote white nationalist republican party etc and so they say things particularly those at the top leadership like joe biden like. and they are trying to score political points and we see this kind of rhetoric this welcome a gnat's. push by the democratic party but then when push comes to shove we see them backtrack on their words. jobs lost savings run out and depression
8:14 pm
just some of the effects of the 10s of thousands of australians stranded abroad for months by one of the world's strictest lockdowns now one group has filed a human rights complaint with the united nations over their country's continued refusal to let its own citizens come home australians say the country's travel means that many still cannot return up 240000 remain abroad this according to the government although there are fears the real figures are far higher 5000 are listed as vulnerable we spoke 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.
8:15 pm
dollars upwards and then there's the flight assistance package which the government . offices but all of those flights only leave rome 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 cover of it i wouldn't be eligible for that flight home because they only take people who 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 if that was the case. australian prime minister scott morrison had pledged to bring many if not all those stranded home by last christmas james cater says that the ongoing situation is simply unacceptable. says in my possible that i should not be all that terribly deprived the right to return to my home country.
8:16 pm
the syrian government has used the biosecurity act which is something to explain away that part 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 this is a gross violation of all surrender strains human rights. still to come on the program pakistan is looking to join the ranks of countries making one of russia's coronavirus jabs as demand in the country grows our correspondent is there and will give us a 1st hand to look after a short break stay with us. the world is driven by a dream shaped by those. who

8:18 pm
welcome back this is art international now pakistan is pushing to manufacture russia's vico vaccine as hospitals report massive demand for the shot is it goes down of is in the capital islamabad. pakistan has entered a new era in vaccinating its population against covert 19 while free government subsidized vaccines are still only available to the senior population and while doctors the groups of risks private companies have now also been allowed to sell the vaccine to everybody willing the price is steep it stands at about $80.00 per 2 jobs of russia's would need to be but well despite that despite the average salary here in pakistan being below 5 $100.00 a month that we've seen q. was especially among younger pakistanis and lines to get russia's sputniks b. we were vaccinated to in seoul city hospice so everyone seems very happy very says
8:19 pm
is it the overall experience of good in the sputnik vaccine is very good. it's a very easy process without any pain we will box unaided in after $21.00 days to get the 2nd dose to finish the process. my motive is to protect myself and my family when we feel safe and secure it will start a trickle down effect there is talk about herd immunity my message is that those who can afford it should be vaccinated as soon as possible. because being offered this hospital also and through other hospitals. in the reception has been so positive because people would like to work simply because people realize that is the only way forward and they have could do this now this process of kind of private vaccination isn't going without a hitch some venues have already reported that they have sold out and in some places like in the southern province of kharaj you people had to queue for hours to
8:20 pm
get the job but in general well it is a promising trend given that pakistan has been avoided the fate of so many countries in the world where a certain percentage of the population went well this event and the criticize. and in general not trust in the process of vaccination and all together pakistan has long shown interest in the russian vaccines russia has done an excellent job helping the world fight the pandemic the vaccine is a step forward in this direction we are committed to attract investments to pakistan and if possible producing this vaccine in our country but now that so many people in pakistan have shown that they want to get the vaccine that they are sensible that they want to get themselves protected against covert 19 this paves the way for further russia pakistan corporation. america's c.b.s. news is under fire for what has been described as a deceptive edit of
8:21 pm
a press conference with florida governor rod of scientists as the clip apparently misses most of his answer the segment in the current affairs program 60 minutes featured an exchange in which a reporter effectively accuses the governor of a pain for play in florida's vaccine distribution efforts the part when the governor explains the state policy was omitted in the final cut and critics say it looks like he dodged the questions rhonda sentence is now accusing the media of lying these are. that's why nobody trusts corporate media they're a disaster and what they're doing they knew what they were doing was a lie the republican governor was quickly defended online including from a democrat the florida state emergency situations manager who explained in a fiery tweet that no connection should be made between a campaign contribution from a company and the state choosing the supermarket chain to assist in vaccine

distribution. the store group in question called publics also dismissed the claims as irresponsible as well as absolutely false and offensive c.b.s. news though stands by the story and said in a statement that they interviewed dozens of people about the story and requested a separate interview with the santas who declined guests we have been hearing from say that today's media is letting people down. i'm a video editor so i know how much you could change the meaning by editing i don't think that c.b.s. is going to admit any wrongdoing as far as i know that they're saying that they did nothing wrong which to me is very disgusting it's very disturbing because the american people depend on the news to give them accurate storytelling and when they're making up stories and editing stories and doing something that's deceiving they should apologize immediately i don't think that they will apologize just because i just think they're not the type of company that's going to be able to
8:23 pm
