11:01 am
here at ortiz world news age q. i've got our latest for you for the next 30 minutes . is coven used to start? as you heard there. on the crowns causing havoc around the world, the new coven mutations been highlighted as a variant of concern by the world health organization. and it's already been detected in multiple countries that are also says it's highly contagious, and even those who have fully vaccinated could easily get it. nations have already started closing their borders to prevented spread and try and get a handle on a, which i think will take at least $8.00 to $10.00 days. will 1st images of this new strain originally detected in south africa have been published by italy. researches make of that. what you will on the right is all mc cron on the left. the delta very . and now you can see medical, not the red air is showing, it's got many more mutations this time round. and that means that the virus is further adapted, but must make it clear. it's not yet clear. if it means it's any more dangerous, that's going to take a little while for governments and medics to work out. but well, as governments are trying to get a handle on it,
11:02 am
many people have found themselves stranded, including in south africa, has travel bands or impose policy at reporting 1st. tonight, then, from johannesburg, they're pull this elation distillation, frustration, and anger. these are just some of the emotions that people here in south africa are experiencing. i'm here on the tambo important one is the, this is the main international airport in south africa. and as you can see, the airport is practically deserted. a far cry from the scenes we saw just a short time ago when thousands of people were liveing here disk. but to get on any available flight. often announcement was made that most international travel in and out of african states was being implemented. that announcement came as a complete surprise. you had people that were waiting boarded that was sitting on planes about to take off that they had to disembark. you had people that were waiting in the skies flying that had to turn around and come back. the situation
11:03 am
such is that you now have tens of thousands of people who are stranded here in south africa. people who need to get back to jobs and families. and at the same time you have so many people have brought many of them south africans desperate to get into the country. many of them have not been able to visit for at least 2 years . and they have loved ones, some of whom are sick. some of whom are elderly here in the country, waiting to see them. i say to them, okay, i'm coming to check in. will i be able to get home? i'm only going for 10 days to my mother and she started the computer interested. all the flats for december had been cancelled. so if you call, you can get back. and if you get back, you're going total parenting for 2 weeks and i've got 2 boys and i just knew that i, i actually had to knock for their flat. and i was devastated and pop broken. i've got double vaccinated up what a booster shot. i had all the documentation. i could have got on the flight. and
11:04 am
that would have taken me to south africa backs, australia closed the borders so that they wouldn't allow anybody to come back into the country. and so feels excessive and i feel very sadden, but i feel like the other information is making them really concerned just in a few days. everything's pretty changed. i was alex, i got a message from a friend. i'm checking the news and then more and more news updates had to keep checking, not knowing what would happen. and then within 3 days, i mean it's all just completely changed and there's no way that i can go, i've been vaccinated 3 times. so i am as vaccinate as to be, i wouldn't make any difference. i do congratulate the, well, the leaders for taking such quick action. but i do think that they really need to be properly informed before making decisions that really affect the lives of so many people. the prices for the few remaining flights out of here have skyrocketed as has the cost of mandatory cova testing. now, the international community is very cognizant of the fact that as many as 7 out of
11:05 am
10 south africans have not been vaccinated. and this is partly because they're not enough vaccines in the country. and also because many south africans are worried about the long term effects of the vaccines that are on the market. now, south african scientists have been very vocal in saying that they were the 1st to come forward and be transparent about this new variant that has been found. they just, it's not a south african variant. and that it is elsewhere in the global community that instead of being applauded south africa has now been push on the blacklist policy r, r t, johannesburg, south africa and other developments and advisor to the italian health authority saying the current preventative measures are only having a limited impact on this new stride, and it could be of reality for years to come, then commented in the action and from the u. k. of the u. k. reintroducing quarantine in the government mandated hotel for people coming in from south africa
11:06 am
. and britain's health secretary say he believes cove is going to be with us in some form forever. he was asked to learn to live with cove and we will never defeat it. we have to learn to live with it. we have to learn to live with it as we have learned to live with flu. of course, it is not flu and dead. you know, we need to learn more about in cases of, of new come, have already been discovered in germany in belgium, the czech republic. and there are at least 13 cases in the netherlands that came after a flight of individuals came in from south africa. now, in a separate development, dutch police had to raid plane just before it was about to take off after it emerged that 2 of the passengers on board had been in quarantine hotel and had escaped from that desperately trying to leave the netherlands to try and get home as that panic is spreading, it turns out that the quarantine hotel that they had escaped from they were
11:07 am
individuals who had presented with the omnicom. strange, you really get a sense of just how scared people are at the moment. some individuals are now facing a lengthy stays in quarantines, which are incredibly costly, particularly in the u. k. for me, there is just no ways i can afford 50000 rand, which is equivalent to 2 and a half 1000 pounds to be in a hotel in land. and when my home is around the corner and, and i live on my own, we are consult oscillate. and secondly with the jobs that are meant to start. if i'm now i'm starting approximately 3 weeks later, which means i'm 3 weeks without a seller which is basic, have worked it out, which is basically my rent money for the month. i'm a british citizen, i've lived there for 23 years. i have to find a way the government has to do something about the hotel quarantine and people are up in all that got government con, make these rulings and then expect the citizens to pay for it. you know, for those who were fully vax,
11:08 am
as we heard from those individuals facing problems from south africa, they really thought perhaps this pandemic was about to be over, at least for them because they followed all of the guidance. they done everything that they were asked to have done. so this must be coming now as a bit of a cold shower for people in europe to realizing that having 2 or 3 jobs just isn't enough. when we faced these new strains that we know so little about in france, the french health ministers resigned to the fact that omnicom will be found here and says that the government needs more time to look at it. they don't use if you don't. and with only to you, since it's circulating in the u. k, italy, in belgium, it's probable that there is a case in circulation in france. researchers are looking at whether vaccines must be modified, but it's too early to say, since it was only discovered a few days ago. scientists who i spoke with on the telephone yesterday, including internationally say we need a period of around 10 days to no war. meanwhile, the ministers,
11:09 am
the health ministers from the g 7 countries will meet later on monday to discuss this new variant and how it possibly can be tackled at the same time as the experts are really left in a situation with a race to understand exactly what this mutation means and what that means for the a fight for the end of this pandemic charge davinsky though, one of the 1st countries to respond to the new strains, emergency israel, which is closest borders to foreigners. let's go now live to a danny. down on who's previously served as israel's representative to the united nations. thank you so much may contain to be with us tonight. i was just looking that the health authorities, they're saying, i think in israel have got one case of the new version, which is thought to have 5 times more contagious than the delta varied under another 7 or panful of suspected cases. all in quarantine is at the pictures you know to night in your country, and i did israel act too quickly here, or is it show an example to the rest of the world. thank you for having me tonight
11:10 am
. then then you mentioned we have cases actually. now we have 2 cases of confirmed the only quan very end in it. well, that's why the government decided to act very, very fast and to close the borders to fall in there was, we allow only ladies to come in and those off the ground for 3 dave, even though we have the axioms, so we take those measures because we don't know the diet about their barbie and it would take a few days to get more information. and that's why we started to dig those broke oceans to be on the safe side. what's the theory about keeping it open for nationals, but closing it for, for foreigners role human beings, end of the day. if you're going to spread it, you're going to spread it. it's just to keep numbers down. yeah. well, it basically, you know, in a we actually very luck seen and not to travel, but if you do left, you will, we allow them to come back and go when they outside of the country. and that's why we allow them to come back under restriction. but i hope that, you know, within 2 weeks time will be able to open our borders. you know,
11:11 am
it's very divide open. everything is open and stones more events. so i think, you know, it's a precaution because we don't know exactly about the family. i think maybe it was too much, but it's better to be on the safe side when you deal with new variances. we don't have the data yet. with all worlds facing this, israel did so well, getting the faxing out there getting so many people vaccinated because just a lot of people there that went along with it. that when with the government guidelines, they got the vaccines who did this, they were told that they like, put on hold, but the whole thing was all back again. it's like, bang, you've done all that. but he will, again, having to almost cut will not look, but, you know, look at the restrictions that are coming into place. again, that's going to be so disheartening for people, isn't it? indeed, you know, that's a new reality with a thing with our family, with our business. and i think we have to get used to that to be the and the main challenge, kevin, to make sure that our economy is moving forward. the last thing we want to see that
11:12 am
depression and we thought in other countries, that's why we, we open a very fast and we don't put any of the on the economy on the event, but toward the menu. what and why. that's why i expect that within 14 days, everything we back to normal. am i right in saying the thirty's think you look at a better handle on this is about 8 to 10 days. how vicious this new variant is? yeah. i would say a week time expert that they spoke with them today. i think we, you know, we, we, we know that it's my mission of the vibrant, the scary, the number, the scary. but when you see about the vaccine capability to deal with the very end, i think we have better answer within 7 days. as you say, this is new territory for a soul around the world will battle through this day and day out from years now. you worried as other countries i suppose, behind the scenes, governments will be worried that the more this goes on, you're going to get more public kick back. well, we have to stick with the public and that was we are doing work plane and all over
11:13 am
all of the public in the the cooperate with the government. understand the, the issues. yes. out of the base. you know, whether we should use the technology and do actually one of the carry, the very end, you know, we have to follow people. that's the baited. and that's when you, you know, talk called previously block track and trace other going to rethink that now. so actually as we speak, the government decided to we initiate the policy, but only 2 people who were confirmed with that by was either valid to, you know, had a few people. i hope you will be there, those numbers. but i'm not sure the policy will stick because the lab and resentment that policy in parliament ending the public. obviously there's a big lag here, i suppose. between it being reported. governments round the world, medics funding about this. i just think it's too late because the horse is already bolted with this new straight is actually everywhere. is it what, what's your guidance though of other than that we saw today already in many
11:14 am
countries, you know, it is impossible to do to sat down on the flight board. why we can do that every time the, the new variance coming out. but the yes, i think we should, they want you to carefully and learn how to deal with that, and we should expect the public to be patient about it and to cooperate with the guideline. yeah. and what about any businesses affected by livelihoods affected by you telling people who israel away from home? by the way? i've been caught up on that. i've gone that far. no. no. well, we are wide open. as i mentioned before, is the only part we did. we did it to the industry, you know, it really beautiful country and we have to do is coming for the new years for christmas and thought to day thing because of the reflection we will see less to scanning for the new year. is the government offering any more packing of people worried in your country? you know, tele is etc. and people working the tourism industry, the its being disgusted now. i hope that you will be lifted who will not have to pay anyone. but if it will continue above the both in dave,
11:15 am
i think of that who will have no john, but love a dialogue and to compensate those businesses johnny turn on. thank you so much for being on the program there for my representative to the united nations for israel. appreciate your time, have a good night. thank you very much. right. other development, this is a western governments push their citizens to get a boost to show the world health organizations exposed opposition to rich nations extending their collation programs. while vaccination rates remain low in poor countries, case in point across much of africa, for example, less than 10 percent of the population has even not a single dose. no more vaccine should go to countries that have already vaccinated more than 40 percent of their population. until clover has the vaccines, it needs to help other countries get to know more boosters should be administered except to immunocompromised people. most countries with high vaccine coverage
11:16 am
continue to ignore our call for a global moratorium on boosters. it is a huge point of contention and conversation right now, we put it up for debate with pamela guests. then it would make no sense to ensure that most people at least get their 1st dose of the vaccine lava. then pushing for people to have the, the booster. but then i think, oh importantly we have to look at the efficacy of the actual vaccine. because we still know that people who have double days is, can still policy and then also still and be affected by the virus or finance. ready one of the issues that i think they should be really nifty. now i've seen that education is key because we do still have a lot of hesitant people. not wanting to take the vaccine. and also, just really, it just seems quite unfair that they still mandate in ice is now mandatory that health workers should have the vaccine. i think it should also include education, the immunity generated by vaccination. decays, it over time,
11:17 am
particularly actually in the elderly, the most vulnerable. and suddenly after 6 months, these boosters just really have a really significant impact. seen that in real world data from israel, for instance, where they rolled out the booster campaign. so we can see the value of booster shot, you know, variances are going to continue to be generated. was that was the virus is allowed to spread, particularly in countries in d, like south africa, where vaccination rates are lower than what this emphasizes the need to control the pandemic at the global level as well as locally. and it's all, it is in all our interests to support the role of axes across the world. and we should be in a position where we're having to choose should be supporting the increased manufacturing distribution of vaccines. and we should choose between boosters to the most vulnerable an hour late and whether or not somebody else who hasn't been back friday gets their 1st job. oh, well the new calvin, various friends around the world mean time and it's such a hot water jo, pardon?
11:18 am
and all so separately, the mirror san francisco facing a public backlash up to violated their own last monday. just wonder what the fuss is about r t dot com dramatic pictures. now fad whether if you're in brittany, you'd have seen it last couple of days with something else where multiple casualties from a severe storm is buttering is stam, bull, and populated results there. ah, the end result winds completely knocking down a major clock tower, but also overturning vehicles. ruzen trees. well that of ship traffic on the busy boss for a straight was suspended while numerous claims have been unable to land. if you see the damage forecast is warmer, dangerous weather will continue the in to late on tuesday. and you leave documents suggest berlin tried to pressure washington not to impose
11:19 am
sanctions over nord stream to germany's foreign ministry. also warning the u. s. that sanctions against the new gas pipeline from russia damage, trans, atlantic unity. it goes down off reports. well, germany has outright confirmed that it has reached out to some us officials to some your senators in a bit to discourage them from imposing new more sanctions on the nord stream to gas pipeline that runs all the way from russia and into germany. the confirmation came in a response to a question to from a journalist with ortiz, roughly video agency have a listen. this is, there is a document suggesting that the german government at members of the you asked congress not to impose sanctions on the node stream to pipeline because this new would undermine us credibility and damage, trans, atlantic alliance. unity think. would you confirm the german federal government's efforts to come to the sanctions? i can see the departmental chiefs of both the foreign and economics and technology
11:20 am
ministries visited washington d. c. recently, and conducted fruitful negotiations with representatives of the u. s. government and congress. we are continuing incense coordination of efforts with the u. s. have ministration on the implementation of a joint statement on nordstrom to. we regularly exchange of views on the subject on many levels, opposition in regard to sanctions is well known where categorically against any sanctions against allies. so they should not surprise anyone to have a car while germany could become one of the main benefactors from nordstrom to gas pipeline, becoming operational. in fact, it could help the whole of the e u, you know, deal with the energy crisis. but according to the german ambassador in ukraine, north stream to gas pipeline is still at least 6 months away from that. now the whole construction has been hampered by some fierce opposition coming from the u. s . that has been slapping sanctions on various companies involved in the
11:21 am
construction of the pipeline and coming from ukraine as well. see a huge chunk over rushes, gas gets into europe through caves, pipelines. so now with a new, a modern pipeline in place, kia fears that had services will become obsolete. that's despite breast repeated assurances coming from both germany and the russian president vladimir putin. that nord stream to will not be turned into an economic weapon. a wave of smashing. grab robbery shaking the u. s. during thanksgiving. in the weekends. black friday sales with many pointing out the police seem to be overwhelmed with a level a crime that erupted and with the christmas holidays just around the corner cause paper asking if authorities can actually keep their city safe with their hands apparently tied by new policies. so asked taylors reporting on it. remember the days of good cop bad cop while back on in case you missed the memo. now every cop
11:22 am
is a patty. well, we need to completely dismantled minneapolis police department, i ah. 7 no, no. off to george floyds, mad at people came for policing budgets were slashed, force was a no go stop and such was out. accountability was in. so where are we now? while the politicians who pulled the money plug, leaving police departments high and dry, might feel safe from neg gated communities. but for the rest of america, well from coast to coast, from small towns to big cities, crime is on the rise one year and the biggest annual spike of homicides in 60 years later states. and now trying to fast track a return to the good old days of laura in order to reverse the tide of rising crime,
11:23 am
we need to stop the demon demonizing and sabotaging the dedicated men. women who risked their lives every single day to keep the rest of us safe enough is enough. we cannot de fund the police. we need to refund the police. instead of less funding, we need more investment in public safety and a knife in the back of the democrat, lawmakers everywhere, almost 90 percent of marilyn's black voters back him because if they have been most affected by fewer patrol cars in the neighbourhood, and this isn't a one off this year has seen a wave of pro police candidates be elected all across the country from liberal seattle, to minneapolis, the very place george floyd died at the hands of a police officer. the list really does go on. it turns out that lol assess is not as exciting and real life as it is in the westerns and for the democrats already
11:24 am
terrified of a mid term bloodbath. this could be a death now, already blue republicans, the proud gun toting law and order party a polling 8 percent higher than democrats nationally. it's almost like voters have realized that it's one thing to shout to slogan, to make a gesture. it's another thing to come up with a real game plan. it does not present any sort of plan for what will come after. there is no specificity as to what services would provide what law enforcement would look like. what residents can expect. police might be back in demand, but it looks like too little too late. the usaa saying record numbers of offices leaving the force and recruitment numbers away down despite all types of incentives to boost them. when you start treating those who hunt for criminals as the criminals themselves, then also willing to go out and take a bullet few, a lot of the competent people who would make good police offices,
11:25 am
a refraining because they feel that they can go to prison for doing their job to be a police officer. you put your life in jeopardy. now some feel they're not protected. the criminals have more rights than police officers to day. careful what you wish for what started as a catchy slogan and a bid to be with the voters turned into a radical agenda that's been calling to criminals and cruel to the north pole. a major diplomatic snub that frances abruptly withdrawn its invitation to britain to major european talks of migration to spite. of course, the background of those deaths of dozens more migrants trying to cross the english channel just a couple of days ago. paris says the u. k. is not doing enough to stop the record flows of asylum seekers. the lossy leveled with thank you the once great britain has firstly to take its responsibilities and limit the economic attraction of its territory and allow a legal way for asylum requests to say,
11:26 am
since they have to take their pods. and secondly, it needs to take on the smugglers will put a passer brains home. secretary, pretty patel dub from says move to exclude him from the meeting. unfortunate amman him across. angry then at an open letter from boris johnson at the president thinks, shifts the blame for the migrant crisis to france. more than $23000.00 microns have tried across the english channel already this year. that's almost triple the number seen in 2020. and then that awful tragic, desolate 27 asylum seekers. just wednesday, being described as one of the deadliest days since the crisis began. and despite france snubbing britain at the talks, brussels and this is where it gets confusing, says cooperation is key. i think it's of the utmost importance that they gave the highest priority to at managed. this difficult situation is important with the close of cooperation between member states and together with our agencies. it's also important to work of course, closely together with the u. k. we have to prevent lives being lost. we have to
11:27 am
prevent, ah, a chaos coming to our external borders. i've got some thoughts on this and talk to form a breaks it part and you keep me p for scotland, david coban. hello david, thanks. she time. i just look, i just put a random search in here looking at some good, good, good quality, new sites. if you look at 2 days ago, you came in as a down plays tensions with fronts of a channel crossings. 20 i was ago, channel migrants, france, one serious talks with the u. k. 5 hours ago. france urges u. k. to open legal migration route. wearing one message from brussels about they won't talk. and i will say this from france. it's an ugly tit for tat, especially given the background of the terrible situation we saw on wind those 27 souls dying just wednesday in their yes, well, essentially european union want to look, you know, offload a lots of migrants on us. and you know,
11:28 am
they haven't been doing doing their best to stop them coming over. quite frankly, the british government need to do something. and i agree with your opinion in many ways they've got britain has got to stop being so attractive to, to, to, to the last for since the world. i mean, there's a lot of money to be made. it made living in england. but the one thing does happen is when they arrive in the u. k, the, the, to get to get looked after by the state. they get handouts to get housing everything. whereas in your pocket and get sent back again, it's the, it's the deterrent. maybe to show the, even if you do get there and go through all that a hell of getting there from rick places, sometimes that come from you're going to be sent back anyway and of absolutely. they should be. and they should be told that anyone around the country illegally like that will automatically be sent by and they will not be allowed to stay. they've got to make it is horrible. i mean, if i were these people, i want to come to u. k. my parade, we can, we've got a problem with
11:29 am
a health service. we've got a problem with coven. you know? yeah, but you will arrive in britain still part of the big wide world. and i suppose you know what you expect off the brakes. it may be the doesn't want to stand shoulder to shoulder with you in quite the same way that will before to talk about this. why don't they never did quite a bit. they always want you to offload as many people on as a post. but i think the problem with great britain is it's very attractive because we, you know, in your opinion, you have to contribute to the system before you get anything out of or as britain is given according to eat. and the problem with that is there is open ended and we ended up paying a lot of money for these people to come me a when they arrived. i and, and of course they going to come to you, kate, to get nothing in france. so therefore, why shouldn't you want to come to the u. k? we've got to stop that. it's got to stop the british taxpayers. get enough trouble with coven at the moment. and our ot schools are in trouble. and we, you know, we, we just don't eat extra pressure. no cause being a big problem as well. david,
11:30 am
we didn't leave it there. david cockburn, former brakes a party and you kept me pay for scotland. sorry, but a bit brief. we got a break to get to have a good evening. yeah, and thank you for watching as well. that's it for now. stay across all the latest with this new covey very. what's happening then was known so far, t r t dot com, call it brace. they're in half an hour to take you through the evening for now, reporting from moscow. my name is kevin o in for me, and the team stand by for an ag shows in your part of the world. thanks for checking in without international the global broadcaster life from russia. ah ah i.
