11:01 am
a reaction to those who threaten us in this way. this coming the south for doing now because we have successfully tested a hypersonic missile. yeah, this came in the self to let them a potent saying rushes developed a powerful new hypersonic missile in response to a pentagon statement, ramping up tensions with moscow. and fears to grow over twits, his future is a beacon of free speech as the online john gets a new boss nun for coming out against freedom of expression and the 1st amendment ah well welcome to the program life from ortiz will use age q of got to 30 minutes of news for you coming up. my name's kevin o. in 1st, the not developing story to stop the origins and timing of this latest cove it varied in question to night after dutch health official. so the army chrome was
11:02 am
detected in the netherlands before it was reported in south africa. now it's unclear if so far the infected people had actually visited africa before and how exactly this new variant appeared in the netherlands. but it could also mean therefore that many more cases are going on around the world. i got the latest, my correspondence, peter, all over the europe side of it. and 1st we start with policy clear in south africa . oh, nothing does not mention the new information that's coming forward is everybody welcome to here in south africa. this is because on the saw people falling in the south african variance and they would say no, it's not the same. and i'll find to an expert of folk songs that they were able to get up to. to be honest enough to hold the world hope gratian and very much the feeling here in south africa for the last few days following these travel ban, south africa has actually been left by the speakers. all concerning what we have
11:03 am
been is that infection care in south africa have morning? suppose in recent days, last official figure, we have awful sundays when they were 2800 new cases and the campaigns with 500 hello april. basically at the hospital finishing that, they expect a lot of pressure in the next 2 to 3 weeks. and they also expect moving team panels and you have to be in the at the same time, you will have thousands of south african international ban for 70. though the latest information we have is that the british airways should be operated again tomorrow. but now it says the invalid has said that the situation is with south africa is its wave. and the ration on the ground, despite the discovery we have in addition to the discovery of this new screen, still remain very worrying. how has europe responded to this new straight
11:04 am
especially call? so this news that actually it could have been around a few days, maybe up to 11 days earlier. if this news is coming in this from the netherlands is to be believed anglo american. the well most likely successor all of sholtes as chancellor will be discussing with the health ministers from germany. 16 states what they're going to do for a national tactic to tackle the current outbreak of cove at 19 may well be something about when schools can be closed. also something about curfews as well. be paying close attention to it. however, some of the regional leaders in germany, a saying action needs to be taken immediately to protect our healthcare system. we unfortunately have to shut down the whole country on an even strict basis. a federal emergency break must be decided this week. one country that's already in the middle of a lockdown is austria. that is going to run through until at least the end of this week. it could well be extended until the 13th of december. and we've been finding
11:05 am
out a little bit more from the austrian government about their proposal that they're going to him, make it mandatory for people to have vaccines from the 1st of february. and anybody who doesn't go for a vaccine could be eligible for a fine of just over 3000 euro, or spend 4 weeks in jail. we are seeing cases, almost all over the country, all over the continent. we're looking at at present in spain, portugal check republic, italy, belgium, and the netherlands. as i mentioned, frances, looking into 2, at least 2 suspected cases there. and what we're hearing from ursula on the line, the a you commission president, is that more action needs to be taken to try and tackle this new variance here. now, in a race against time, the scientists and manufacture need 2 to 3 weeks to have a full picture about the quality of the mutations of this army chron variant. while
11:06 am
staying in europe moving outside of the european union, the night in the united kingdom, england has re introduced the wearing of face masks on public transport and in shops as, as a legal requirement. it had been voluntary since the summer ministers for health there is saying it's because of this new variant and uncertainty over how it may affect people. we're trying to get that balance and propose and, and, and it is difficult because it's unknown. so we need to buy some time so our scientists could work with the world's leading scientists to just basically. so think about what they're in. we know it's very transmissible by looking at that the year. but we don't know, you know, whether it work with the vaccine vaccine, whack or the other treatments, etc. so the scientists do need some time for that for that's how it looks across europe right now would be keeping a keen eye to see on what news develops either with from the netherlands, with regards to the announcement that at this omicron very, it may have been present here for much longer also watching what's going to come
11:07 am
out from here in berlin, where angle america, the german chancellor meeting with regional leaders as they try to establish a new national protocol for it when it comes to trying to tackle this covert outbreak. yeah, a lot happening rapidly to nations and are applying their own new measures to tackle the spread of the virus. australia. along with european countries, a suspended, fletcher heard the term from south africa, neighboring states, while others are but everybody, except their own nationals, arriving in from southern africa. israel in japan are gonna step further. they've imposed a complete band for the time being japan's prime minister saying it's crucial. he said to avoid a worst case scenario. while studies continue into the new strain, i could take 2 to 3 weeks, still, many back. the government stands there as well. they want to see now come on, i'm from a rural area and i'm very worried and my wife is also very worried. wondering what tokyo residents to thinking about the new variant does. what are the you know? so i feel relieved now that prime minister kasheila announced very strict border
11:08 am
measures. it had to feel it. i think it was good that she, that of the border measures, they're swiftly and on top of that i want team to prepare well for things like hospital beds and similar issues. i'm scared because oil people like us are a bit too relaxed now to criminals is for sure. it's better not to allow people to my be infected to enter japan because the situation in japan is pretty stable. now . it's initial feeling. so as mentioned at the moment, scientists are rushing to try to adapt existing vaccines to fight the new stray, which is yet to be fully studied. as the world health organization says it potentially poses a very high risk globally. but earlier i spoke to melita when a v h about this, she's a representative of the w h o here in russia. well, a mutation shows a number of i would say change is a number of mutations that we can relate to something either to previous knowledge . for example, this virus,
11:09 am
this variance has mutations many more mutations on the spike protein. it is actually this the needle that the virus is using to getting to the salad to make us infected, to actually cause infection to spread further. and this is why because it has many more than other y versus other variance. it has immediately come into concert . so i think i'm saying just acknowledge, but we don't have anything to me, all this logical noise. it's telling us at the moment that this is a more deadly virus. what we know from south africa is that maybe young people and this is where the cluster was detected. and we do know that callie's been young. people is lighter. we do not have reports and he's no man that it is causing more severe disease or that it is morally thought. this is not something that we should speculate off. we really need a bit more time. and this is why he said that there is no place for panic,
11:10 am
but there is place for preparedness, proportion, and action. we will nerses speaking up amid the spread of this new cove strain vaccine supplies from the spotlight, nursing union, some 28 countries want to get rid of patrons. they say for corrode a virus child. so that could be legally made by any qualified manufacturer. the group seeking backing from the u. n. now saying the poor countries lack the shots because they're being hoarded by the wealthy countries where they're produced, goes on to say the vaccine and balance could lead to even more deaths. the direct consequences of the failure to distribute vaccines and treatments equitably to the vast majority of people of low and moderate income countries could likely for the transmission of coven 19 further mast illness and large numbers of fatalities. in those countries, there should be reason enough to address the crisis of global vaccine apartheid. well, with on the cross spreading, the united kingdom is back in the spotlight for its handling of the pandemic. this
11:11 am
time is nurses unions in 28 different countries are accusing. richard nations of essentially costing lives worldwide and even of creating a vaccine apartheid system. now essentially what they're doing is taking their complaint directly to the united nations. basically, this is all about many rich countries, including the u. k and the e u. they're refusing to barge on rules, particularly regarding intellectual property rights for rich and nations. have secured 7000000000 doses of the vaccine in comparison to the low income nations, only having around 300000000 doses. now these nurses unions are really accusing rich nations of violating patients rights. instead of supporting this waiver, certain governments are protecting the profits of big pharmaceutical companies at the expense of public health. these countries have violated our rights and the rights of our patients and cause the loss of countless lives of nurses and other
11:12 am
caregivers. and those we have cared for. well, nurses unions in 20 different countries have now filed an appeal with the united nation, saying that the global gap between rich and poor is only just exacerbated with the pandemic, and is now becoming blindly obvious. not only that, what they argue is that the transmission of cov, it in developing nations, increases the risks of new variance emerging. now, a waiver on all of these provisions for vaccines would then allow them to be made more widely and then distributed more widely as well. it would improve the global distribution of the vaccines. now, even the world health organization has weighed in at to this debate, saying that there needs to be a cap on how much of a country is vaccinated. no more vaccines should go to countries that have already vaccinated, more than 40 percent of their population until kovacs has the vaccines. it needs to help other countries get that to well,
11:13 am
the pandemic slogan has long been. no one is safe till everybody is safe. but really and truly it doesn't seem to be the case for many people arguing against the pharmaceutical companies that arguably operating profit for public health. and while there has been a global kovacs initiative, have these global initiatives really been that successful almost 2 years on now from the beginning of the pandemic. and arguably, we're back in the eye of the storm. the feeling really is now that these rich countries are arguably having quite a selfish mindset and if they continue to do so well, we just go round and round in circles and go back to square one with these new variance emerging. this came in the south to let him a potent announcing rushes, developed a powerful new hypersonic weapon. he was responding to a pentagon statement, escalating tensions of the kremlin. i'll take care of a roman cosser of toby ball while answering questions from the participants of the
11:14 am
russia calling economic of forum. vladimir putin a question nato's potential weapons placement in eastern europe and that he warned of the consequences that may follow. in particular, he wondered if natal missiles could reach the russian capital in about 5 minutes, then the what reaction do they expect from the kremlin? now, russian president followed up by saying that the country will soon have a mock 9 hypersonic weapons and he did so in response to one of the questions about this so called red lines in ukraine and natal steps that led to the current tensions between moscow and the western military alliance, i, if miss al site to pair on the territory of ukraine than the flight time of missiles to moscow will be 7 to 10 minutes. and the case of hypersonic weapons 5 minutes. imagine that. and what else can we do? we will be forced to create similar sites as
11:15 am
a reaction to those who threaten us in this way. and we can do it now because we have successfully tested a hypersonic missile. and at the beginning of the year, we already have new c based missiles in service, which can travel, it speeds up to mach 9. the flight time for these missiles will also be 5 minutes. why are we doing all this? creating such threats for us is the red line, but i hope it doesn't come to that. i hope that common sense and the joint responsibility for all countries and for the well community will prevail go water. the so called a russian aggression seems to be dominating the hearts and minds of western politicians and subsequently the people as well. now, media headlines claimed that ukraine is bracing for an imminent had sack while you are sent. and nato officials are pushing the agenda even further saying that russia will face consequences once it's at once that facts ukraine. now this is just a, one of their statements less heavy lesson. global posture of u,
11:16 am
strengthens to combat credible deterrent against russian aggression in europe. and enables nato forces to operate more effectively. we continue to watch with great concern movements by russian military units and near the ukraine border. i obviously can't speak to their what their intentions, but we continue to believe that any escal latoria aggressive actions would be a great concern not only to the united states and i have but have a to our allies and partners there on the european continent. meanwhile, russian defense ministry continues to record nato forces, movements and near its borders. now those includes at entries of michelle equipped worships flights of america, strategic warplanes that had become more and more frequent. recently, also large scale exercises including unscheduled ones, are being conducted. moscow also says that the united states rehearsed nuclear strikes against russia in november. now,
11:17 am
the pentagon responded to that by saying that very drills were announced publicly at the time, and that they all that here to international protocols. meanwhile, here are the economic forum earlier and she's there, russian president questioned why nato felt the need to expand in eastern europe with its anti missile, assist them saying that their relationship was almost idyllic. back in the mid ninety's. right. developing story with sort of a twitter earlier on the some news in from twitter. and the company just announced the sharing personal images without explicit consent will be prohibited as the company expands his policies just a day after new c o park agro took up his post. that's a prompted phase of mo, clam turns on the network to, to his past remarks about not prioritizing freedom of speech. he goes down us across this is that development since since we last spoke, then i was not going to be received in the what news do we have in this?
11:18 am
well, it certainly looks like that prague a wall is continuing sort of the line, the general line. twitter has been firing of his predecessor ger dorsey and the rain. indeed, he started his, well, his will term as the new ceo as well with the scandal because as it normally, as it often happens right now in the age of counsel, culture being on the rise. something that he said a whole year ago came back to horned him, and that was back when he put twitter above the 1st amendment to the us constitution. have a listen. our own is not been bombard footmen, but i want to live on the conversation to focus less on thinking about free speech . but thinking about how to change her life company. my name is ben with a company firewall yesterday. jack dorsey gave you would do this and it wouldn't be, but it gave him a glow in praise. what else do we know about him? well indeed, he is no stranger to twitter. he has been with the company since 2011. he's 37 of
11:19 am
indian descent, his former c t o. in fact, so he has a long history running with twitter. and again, he has been a very high. well he's, he's been an executive for a long time. he's been involved in all the main strategic initiatives in there within twitter, having worked for microsoft and a t and t as well, so, so far, and this is what some investors and some will pundits. they see it as his downside because he's he can't really be described as fresh blood. and i mean, just those he had to step down, at least that's what we hearing. because investors have been, i've been growing impatient with him and with all these candles being like the, you know, the banning of donald trump on the platform as well. so do here to step down now prague. google is well taking over, but it looks that he is continuing with the kind of, you know, crack down approach on what can and cannot be posted and who can be visible on the
11:20 am
network. and this is not how it's been because previously it is, there has been a shift in how to handle this sort of also sorts of control the c on its platform because it's not used to be and twitter is, you know, executive offices, they have been pro freedom of speech, one of our core values is respect and defend the users voice were the free speech wing of the free speech party. we believe our purpose is to serve the public conversation and that does take a stance around freedom of expression and defending freedom of expression as a fundamental human rights. and so, compared to the statement of prague or while from the last year when he said, when he basically said that everybody can, most people can, you know, speak on the platform. but he also said that he says the twitters role is to who gets the spotlight so he can speak. but if you don't get any shares and likes than the you, you will remain pretty much invisible. so this is, this seems to be the approach that twitter is taking and well continues to take.
11:21 am
meantime, joe dorsey walked away, very rich man. all right, lovely ego. thank you very much. now we're going to talk next. i believe about her american actor. just these small lead cert facing possible jail time, if found guilty of staging, a fake hate crime nearly 3 years ago it's been going on for wallace. the case was drops been reinstated, but with his child, the getting this week is defense. it said he maintains that small, it was certain, actually the victim of an attack. no, we're going to talk to are you new york correspondent kellum open about that, but i gather, i did so into this will we are won't, we will look. so we're not going to talk about it some more, may be calling braille, be picking that up in the next hour or so. we are hoping to go to it. oh, think we can go to maybe news from france next week. i just can't french right wing it. t v pundit eric samouce announced his candidacy for next year's presidential election. but despite his popularity public scandals of heard his writings, i'm very sure that shallow penske is here to report next. the would be bad for you
11:22 am
. french politics has announced t's a mission, the running to become the next president of frogs. this is eric simile, who's a highly divisive figure here in the country. but as also in the last few months, showing that who could gain a substantial following and really shake up this race. now he's setting out why, who should lead france with this no more time to reform friends? it's time to save it. that's why i've decided to run for president clinton saw children and grandchildren will not face barbarity. so our daughters will not be forced to wear a head job, and our sons will not be forced into submission. so we can pass to them the same fronts that we knew and that we inherited from ancestors feel up of what he does. the war has twice been convicted of inciting, racial hatred. and he is currently awaiting a verdict of a 3rd allegation. he has been clear that he believes white french people will be
11:23 am
replaced by norm won't known you repeat immigrants is a more, has also spoken out against islam, saying that it threatens frances values. and to said, immigrants need to assimilate to the values of the french republic, suggesting that names like mohammed would be banned under his leadership. now, the pun, dates, and right to has spent the last few months unofficially campaigning, as she has been promoting his latest book. his pre candidate show campaign has been hampered by some events being canceled abroad as he tried to reach out to french ex pats. his events which draw must support, particularly here in france, also draw protests about me on ever to have given attention to. i don't even want to pronounce his name, who has said such outrageous things. just an acceptable,
11:24 am
even if okay, we're in a country of freedom where everyone has the right to express their opinion. but to give so much visibility to one person like that is shameful. premier pasco has, we hope mr. zimmer will clean things up. uh, but the problem is that it's been 30 years 40 years back. the state has been demobilized from many issues and we need to see clearly when we need to re launch the country. i think the others won't have the courage to do it already or something. well, today we see that despite our differences, we all have the same problem in our daily lives. that is why we're all gather today to say no to this divisiveness, the country, they call them a racist, but it's not true. he's no more racist than i am. i'm of lebanese origin, and i'm here and i've integrated, well, yes. now many have also describes him more as bull intellectual. ringback donald trump and he has had a popular right in the poll so far at one point,
11:25 am
even before declaring his candidacy poles showed that he could make a 2nd cut to the round of voting. that will determine he's president not to shaken up many on the political scene, which is very traditional. hey, i seen it still isn't quite certain as to who will be on the ballot paper next year . current president mack on still have officially throw his hat in the ring, while the republicans who all that traditional party of the right are still to choose their candidates. the moon joins names like marine the pen socialist paris name annie del. go and the left wing firebrand john mc men is shown as he eyes the top job in france. let's go back to what we talked about just before the american actor jessie small, let facing possible jail time if found guilty or staging a fake hate crime. nearly 3 years ago now, with his trouble getting this week, his defense attorney maintain small. it was the victim of a real attacks that go backwards and forwards for a long time. let's get latest on it. say new york city got the lines,
11:26 am
have no candidate both in high, nice to see again what he tell us about this case. a small lot still denies it cost me well, opening arguments are taking place in the trial of actor, just the small lat in chicago. he's charged with essentially making false reports to authorities alleging he was the victim of a anti anti gay and racist hate crime. now, you'll recall it was 3 years ago. the 39 year old actor from the u. s. t v. program empire was widely reported that he'd been attacked by 2 white masked men who've been wearing donald trump or make america great. again, had they had thrown chemicals on him, they had put a noose around his neck. they had shouted anti gay and racist slurs at him. and then as well as telling him that this was mag country short for make america great
11:27 am
. again, donald trump slogan while shouting racist and homophobic slurs, he was then released from the hospital without any serious injuries. and quickly we saw many figures in the democratic party, jumping on his narrative of the dance and using them to criticize the trumpet administration. let's review the reaction of democrats at the time. this happened. what's happened today, it's just the smell. it must never be tolerated in this country. we must stand up and demand that we no longer give this hate safe harbor that homophobia and racism have no place on our streets or in our haws. well with you, josie, there is no such thing as racially charged. this attack was not possibly homophobic . it was a racist and homophobic attack. if you don't like what is happening to our country, then work to change it. justice millette is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings i know, and praying for his quick recovery. this was an attempt to modern day lynching. we
11:28 am
must confront this hate now, and the incident led to a police investigation when the police started looking into the case just you smell that story completely fell apart. they found 2 brothers, both of whom were black, who had been paid by just some a lat, according to their own report. they'd been paid by justice millette to stage the attack against him. and after this took place that he's in, individuals came forward said they've been paid to shout racial slurs at just some a. lat, throw the chemicals on him, et cetera, while wearing the donald trump pads immediately the case fell apart. now, at this point, just the smell that is true is charged with colonial, disorderly conduct. if he's found guilty, he could stand up to a year in jail. now, he's set to, he's put in a plead of not guilty. and his lawyer gave an opening statement saying that he just the small lat,
11:29 am
is the real victim. in this case. now whether or not small let actually take the stand in his own defense or not, remains an open question. we will see that the trial proceeds, but the incident is being reviewed and recalled by many as an example of how quick the mainstream media and democrats were to jump on a narrative about painting donald trump and his supporters in a negative light. not really looking into the facts of the case when pretty quickly, just smell that's claims and his story of being the victim of a hate crime pretty quickly fell apart. much to the embarrassment of many establishment figured who figures who had spoken up on his behalf afterwards. se still denied caleb open. thank you very much for the phone. i keep post is this one develops interesting, but it's up to 30 pass the hour. we want you to keep up to date us all the latest news run today on the, on the chrome developments, including the news that it was detected in the netherlands, maybe up to 11 days before being reported in south africa. who follow that would
