9:02 pm
a 3000000 people have died of the virus world why it's a 3rd of those deaths were in europe which has scaled up its vaccinations so fights a deadly 3rd wave in germany were near the 80000 people have died chancellor angela merkel is pushing for a new paris to enforce locked ends and curb infections in brazil the virus has taken a toll on mostly young people grave diggers are working round the clock to cope with the world's 2nd highest number of deaths. well let's get more now from. the he joins us now from bogota to look at the situation across latin america but i listen to let's start with brazil the situation there is clearly getting worse and i think governments in brazil is advice women to delete getting pregnant because of the pandemic.
9:03 pm
worry that elements in brazil and across the region on friday they held. there from the ministry of health in brazil have asked women if possible to delay their pregnancies at least until the worst the. pandemic is passed in the country that's going through another major surgeon other major wave of infections hospitals that are under a major pressure there believe that a lot of it has to do with the quick spread of a variant that was 1st discovered in brazil and it's now in most of latin america which it does believe is affecting were pregnant women and also young people so that's why now we've heard there is calling on women to delay their pregnancies also recent study that was just a couple of days ago looking at the number of children that have been possibly
9:04 pm
affected by 19 says that the real numbers could be much higher than the official ones the ministry of health says that they 100 children have died coronavirus since the beginning. 500 of them being babies but this new study now shows that the real number could be more than 2000 children that have died of cope with the 19 age 9 or younger 1300 of them would be babies this based on looks. excess deaths of children since the beginning. and then we can comparing it to the previous year deaths that have been affected by respect at thore diseases very distressing situation you're outlining forest alessandro white then i thought how is the rest of latin america coping with this pandemic. well most countries are now going through a 2nd or
9:05 pm
a 3rd surge of infections so we have seen in the past weeks a number of new restrictions being put in place throughout the region and we've also seen protests on part of the people that are increasingly tired of these restrictions that have been affected in their economy this has happened for example in the last day or so in both in argentina here in colombia where i am in argentina this due to the fact that the national government there as decided to close schools again at least until april 30th so a lot of families were on the streets protesting that also. owners small businesses because of new restrictions of a curfew that is in place and when a side is the same as happened on friday and somewhat earlier here on saturday
9:06 pm
earlier here in the capital of colombia. with street vendors and owners of small shops coming out saying that they just cannot deal with the further closing for the restrictions just to give you an idea there are 6 cities that are under a total lockdown in colombia this weekend in 2 of them on the colombian coast kept a hand and almost half of the population is saying that they're able right now to have tree meals a day because of these restrictions yes these are saying that the search is on there is out of control most hospitals i see you units are fool and just today on saturday the government here in colombia said that now they know for sure that both the brazilian and british variant are in the country and. the responsible for much of the surge that we've seen we've been seeing in the last
9:07 pm
couple of weeks no careless and around here to report saying there live from bogota thank you very much indeed for bringing us the latest. asia is fast becoming the global epicenter of the covert 19 pandemic the region's most populous nation india has registered nearly 2 135000 cases in the past 24 hours as yet another daily record variance 1st attacks is in the u.k. south africa and brazil as well as a double mutant strain of the virus are believed to be behind the recent increase years priyanka. on the outskirts of new delhi's ancient walled city a young man buries his father. a few metres away a steady stream of mourners carry bodies of their loved ones in the capital's largest school the 1000 graveyard for muslims it's now on most full families speak
9:08 pm
of their anger and despair as a day to keep piling up in the city's mortuaries. people are being made to run around but they're not letting anyone patients people are desperate even for drinking water over there doctors are not meeting the patients they are keeping their distance and if someone's oxygen finishes and that person is simply lying there an attendant. you dearly has imposed a week in curfew and there are restrictions in one of india's most populous states my rashtriya to slow infection rates in the worst hit regions but reports of shortages of hospital beds medicine and oxygen have led to more fears or i'm very very scared the situation is terrifying if i wasn't an essential worker i wouldn't have left my house at all no one should go out but this new social distancing here pulling boots in some of the most politically charged regional elections prompt. what can we do unless people try to protect themselves how much can we do that's
9:09 pm
why i stood behind the lines because i would try to manage and control the crowd but nobody listened. some blame petitions for holding large election rallies. on one hand over 1000 cases arising and leaders are doing rallies where they and their supporters are not even wearing masks this is something to think about how people vote if they're not allowed to do it. for days hundreds of thousands of hindus have been gathering at camilla an important religious festival increasing concerns of more infections now prime minister in the movie is urging worshippers to keep the festival symbolic amid criticism of the government's handling of the operate there calls to scale up vaccinations and impose tougher restrictions the for a 2nd wave of the virus in the world's 2nd worst affected nation gets even worse. meanwhile in north america canada's most populous province is introducing further
9:10 pm
restrictions as experts warn infections there could rise 6 fold it's been in partial lockdown for several weeks in an effort to stem surgeon cases the government says limiting travel from neighboring provinces and extending stay at home orders police will have more paris to question people who leave home well ontario premier doug ford says people need to comply with the stricter measures. all the way back to the fall we have parts of this province that have been in great lockdown we closed the the entire province we closed the schools place we've increased health care when we go back to the beginning we scrambled everywhere when this 1st happened over a year ago it's like we've all been pushing this boulder of a mountain and you know until we have more vaccines we need stricter stricter measures well let's get more on this night from robert steiner he's
9:11 pm
a professor and spokesman for the on terrio covert 900 science advisory table he joins us now from several and so it's great to have you with us on the news hour why in your if you is the code situation in canada so that. well there are a number of different situations in different parts of the country where several countries so every province is managing this differently. in ontario it's getting about for a whole bunch of reasons one b. 117 variant the one that was discovered 1st in the u.k. has our dominant code right now so it represents about 80 percent of the spread it's 40 percent more contagious then the original variant that came out of one and it's also more lethal so it's leading to a lot more i.c.u. admissions but the other problem the real problem here is that we. only really had half hearted public health measures it sounds very dramatic you know in the lead
9:12 pm
and that you describe sounds very dramatic but a lot of physicians nurses scientists and just normal and terence to date are really frustrated because. there is a lot of evidence on what we could be doing to stop this spread and the government seems to be moving in a different direction that's so why do you think this is i mean are you worried that your recommendations your scientific recommendations aren't being forward's by the politicians in charge story your words as as people in canada they're just not is hearing so the guidance that you're giving us. you know so i must say we're quite impressed anecdotally that people are even after a year of this under great strain and terry and canadians actually are doing most of them are doing the right thing right. it's hard to comply and that's no different in canada than it is anywhere else but a lot of folks are doing the right thing the kinds of things that are frustrating people now are there are some some simple measures we need to take in canada and around the rest of the world the evidence shows that if you paid sick people to
9:13 pm
stay home essential workers they will stay home and and stop the spread that is a way to stop the spread instructs that is not happening in the interior the other thing we've been very clear about on a scientific basis same here in the rest of the world is that it is much safer to be side than inside of the government yesterday came out and actually said that police would start ticketing people if they were outside with people other than in their own households that has put a lot of fear into a lot of folks particularly racialized communities who've had bad experiences with over policing but it's not just i mean the show lisa saying i'm sorry to cut you off there but the the whole sense of going to police departments are saying that they're not going to they're not going to impose these fines they're not going to stop and search people so yvonne that gives the impression seeing a night sight of the king in that. suggestions are being given and the ones picking them up and the ones following them i mean he's in charge well. that's
9:14 pm
a great question you know we have an elected government fortunately in this country an elected orderly government and so you know the printer cabinet is he's giving the orders but i think the police are rightly looking at this and saying we don't quite understand i can't speak for the police played there they're saying quite rightly we don't understand the legal basis some which we could do this in from a scientific point of view it's not clear that that would have any effect then. aggressing a lot of people who frankly are probably on their way to work in central business and everything is that we haven't closed enough because if the other question i mean you laughed when i put the question is you who was in charge do you think there is a lack of proper leadership not just secured in your province but but canada why you mentioned earlier that there was this is a federal country in a federal system germany is having similar problems and the chancellor there is moving to try and bring in a more nationwide quartz in a sense approach that was surely be better than the piecemeal strategy being being
9:15 pm
put forward across canada at that time do you think there has been a national failure of leadership to tackle this crisis. you know i wouldn't i wouldn't say that canada and germany are very different germany of course is a much smaller geographical space and so when you have different lender doing a patchwork of different approaches my guess i don't know the german situation but my guess is that that creates a problem because people can easily move from north rhine-westphalia into a different part of the country canada is much larger it is more difficult for people to move from one part of the country to the other and public health is appropriately a provincial jurisdiction in this country i do think that there's a lot of confusion and and one of the principles of pandemic management is to have consistent communications a consistent policies that are also able to shift as we as we gain more scientific insight the problem here is they were sort of trying to push and pull at the same time i would say that one of the characteristic we're all in brown the world fail in our own ways and canada's characteristic is that we try to sort of always come
9:16 pm
to a balanced decisions one of the good things about this country it's why we're less polarized than a lot of other places unfortunately cobi does not allow for balance and certainly to force fight you can't take a balanced approach to a forest fire you have to hit the forest fire and so our efforts to take a balanced approach however well intended continue to put us on the back foot and just finally if i care to test the issue of vaccines vaccination is being hailed as a way of the pandemic across the world canada this really was accused of vaccine a horrid saying given this why has the volt it's all vaccines been so slow all across canada and what do you see as the way i see if this. well the irony is that you know while kerry may have been considered to be a vaccine quarter by virtue of the number of orders we place which is right fine in actual fact canada's been experiencing up until very recently real shortages of facts we don't produce any in this country we're importing our vaccine from the in
9:17 pm
from india will get some from the united states in the next a while astra zeneca is a very important part of our portfolio in this country and it has reputational problems now which you know it shouldn't because it's actually very important vaccine people understand what side effects to look for and it's a safe one if it's applied properly so we've got shortages that are now being addressed and there was a big part of it more in the things that we've also been underscoring is the science table is that while taxiing is a critical part of the picture it is not the whole picture and in fact back scene is the slowest tool we have the fastest tools we have are helping to keep people safe and at home when they don't need to we're having to meet outside because we have to meet other people for a mental health but having people meet outside with the man's it's those kinds of things that will stop over it in its tracks it will take months for vaccine to actually ok it was great to have you with us on the program robert sonny be very
9:18 pm
generous with your time thanks so much for speaking to us here on the al-jazeera news i really appreciate it thank you there's plenty more a so ahead on this news hour including. we have very very graphic reports from toddlers. horrific stories of children separated from their families in northern mozambique after escaping violent attacks last month. a tit for tat escalation between russia and ukraine involving their diplomats. and sport major league soccer is hoping better times lie ahead as the new season kicks off santa will be here with more. i am. an italian court has ordered former interior minister and deputy prime minister matteo salvini to stand trial for his role in denying
9:19 pm
a rescue migrant ship at sea dock in sicily 2 years ago the right when league party leader has been charged with kidnapping with $100.00 refugees and migrants were left stranded at sea jury in the incidents in $2819.00 or a challenge has more now from london. the actually being 2 very similar legal cases the beanie has been brought in and they are both of them links to 2 separate incidents where ships that herds try to dock. on the italian coastline with migrants on board that are being rescued at sea were prevented from doing so by the italian government at the time and one of them was called the ngo stories are operated by spanish ngo and the ship was called the open hands and the other one was a italian coast guard vessel called the gregor retie both of these ships were
9:20 pm
basically kept off the coast of italy over the space of a month or so the open hands was in july 2019 and the gregory was in august 2090 now these legal cases have basically been brought against salvini to try to work out whether there should be 2 separate trials for 'd the charge of kidnapping that he could be held responsible for the illegal kidnapping of these migrants on board these vessels now one of them the open hands here has now been referred to trial the other one is still ongoing last week a prosecutor said that it shouldn't go to trial and a judge will decide on that in a few weeks time iran says it has identified the suspects behind an attack on one of its nuclear facilities state t.v. is reporting the man fled the country before the attack on the natanz plant on sunday to her and blamed israel for the operation calling it an act of nuclear terrorism as a big has more from to her on. we understand it's
9:21 pm
a 43 year old reza karim e who who is allegedly behind the sabotage at the natanz nuclear facility iran's main nuclear facility now we believe that he escaped the country before the incident according to iran and iran is seeking to get a hold of him and wants interpol to issue an arrest warrant and he's image was aired on state t.v. now what what's different different about this is that before when we have heard from the intelligence ministry or the agencies that they are after suspects we have really heard names or images but in this case iran has released an image that this was played out on state t.v. they showed video footage of that natanz facility but we didn't see any of the damage that had taken place and iran is after this individual and they are circulating his image iran is still blaming israel iran hasn't changed that at all that this individual could be someone that was recruited by foreign agencies that's
9:22 pm
our understanding from here in tehran it was similar when iran chief chief scientist most in fact result was assassinated again iran said that other intelligence agencies from other countries had recruited people from within iran so this could be a similar case. eritrea has admitted its troops are fighting in ethiopia's northern t growing region is the 1st time the horn of africa nation has explicitly acknowledged its role in the conflict eritrean forces are reportedly dressing as members of the ethiopian military both governments had previously denied their presence contradicting testimony from aid workers refugees and residents the u.n. says the eritrean forces have committed atrocities fully and davis and is the senior ethiopia analyst at the international crisis group he says both governments are most likely to be held accountable. ethiopia's governments admitted their affair president and said they would withdraw and eritrea said nothing that did
9:23 pm
lead to suspicions that there was a difference between the 2 governments who are allies in this conflict integrate so perhaps eritrea as government also wanted to dispel the idea that there was any major splits between and asmara over this issue. military was was part of an operation to remove from power. regional government which fell into a dispute with ethiopia is federal government and the line now being adopted by both governments is that this was simply a matter. of security also securing some border areas to the conflict began and the evidence is that eritrea as military has been almost all over to great and heavily engaged in the fighting since november and has also been accused of those the trust is joint investigation that's supposed to be getting underway between the united nations human rights investigators and he has been investigated
9:24 pm
so we will have to see what the mandate is what level of access they have got on the ground they get on the ground what types of accountability processes. at this stage it's very hard to say but given the scale of the atrocities i imagine that at some point both ethiopia and eritrea and military personnel will probably be held accountable. the u.n. says hundreds of children were separated from their families when a turn in northern mozambique was attacked by armed groups last month many of them arriving in pember from where her metasearch brings us this report. when an armed group attacked the town of parma in mozambique kabul delgado province some of these women got separated from their children their plan was to reach pemba the provincial capital hoping this sons and daughters had also managed to get here as well but then you're the final i want this war to end i can't take it
9:25 pm
anymore people are left with nothing people are suffering a lot of children are without their parents you know how many pregnant women a hair without their husbands here by themselves i just want to live in peace i want this war to be over please let this war be over. after a few phone calls is told her children are still stuck in parma hungry and afraid but right now she can't get to them the united nations says thousands of people fled palmer last month many of them are children traveling on their own some saw their parents speak so we have very very graphic reports from callers that shouldn't even said some of the words telling us i saw my father being beheaded i saw my mother being killed and somehow we see other children bringing the younger brothers and they talk to us as tiny adults it's sad it's quite
9:26 pm
shocking the armed group calling itself al-shabaab with links to eisele is behind the attacks that began in 2017 some of the mothers here say children are being kidnapped by the arm the boys are forced to the fighters and the girls forced into marriage and 16. and accompanied minors will eventually be placed with host families in mozambique that's if their parents or relatives can't be found but as attacks in kabul delgado province grow in size and frequency he-man a tear in work has worn more children could once again be on the move how to al-jazeera him most anti. ukraine is expelling a russian diplomats after a ukrainian diplomats was detained in st petersburg russia accuses alexander source and trying to obtain classified information and has ordered him home ukraine rejects the allegations which come at a time of already high tensions russian troops have been amassing along ukraine's

a longstanding tension between members of the royal family his public and private lives as representatives of the 1000 year old british monarchy ironically it was prince philip who 1st invited cameras into the royal household in the 1960 s. the family has remained under immense media scrutiny ever since even during times of personal grief. as the prince's body was moved to the royal vault memories of years of public duty and charitable work a legacy muddied by a catalogue of jarring remarks some saw as racist and sexist the put him in olds with modern britain at a time when the royal family has been struggling to retain relevance but for many prince philip has remained for more than 70 years is a symbol of stability loyalty to his wife queen elizabeth and continuity in changing times part of the very fabric of british identity we've

the right wing likud party leader has been charged with kidnapping in a case involving a ship carrying refugees and migrants in 2019 and britain's prince philip has been laid to rest in the royal vaults at windsor castle if you could ever died at the age of 99 last week only 30 calls while family members were able to attend the private ceremony because of coronavirus restrictions. like so many other countries thailand is facing a record rise in new covert 1000 and factions but the thai government's appears reluctant to order a 3rd lockdown as tony chang reports from bangkok. mass covert testing at a basketball stadium in bangkok thailand on saturday recorded the highest rise in new cases for the 4th day in a row despite being the 1st country outside china to record infections thailand has kept the deaths within double figures but there are now real concerns the kingdom
9:37 pm
could be in the grip of a 3rd wave at the cars here like i say here i think this outbreak in thailand would be long because do you can family and spread. new restrictions have been placed on entertainment venues and restaurants banning the sale of alcohol 24 hour markets and gyms have had their opening hours limited but thailand's government appears to be doing everything in its power not to go into complete lockdown by young made up now there is no lock down ok i sympathise with you but we would need to reduce the operating hours i don't want to close everything down closing is easy but who are those who are suffering. stopping the spread of covert 19 has come at a huge economic price closing thailand's borders the shut down the lucrative tourist trade and those businesses that have survived the pandemic so far would probably be finished if a 3rd wave extends the shutdown for much longer here in bangkok things are now
9:38 pm
noticeably quieter but business is being kept alive by the urban middle class outside the capital however many communities have seen incomes drop by more than 50 percent and that's not going to improve until the borders are reopened. the slow rate of vaccinations however means this won't happen for some time thailand has vaccinated fewer than one percent of the population despite attempts to focus on tourist destinations like because the local producer of the astra zeneca jab said this week they won't be in full production till june. many times businesses that will be far too late tony chang al-jazeera bangkok. more than $3000000.00 lebanese that's half the population are facing a tough from as in this year the monthly cost of a star or the meal to break their fast by cost $2.00 and a half times as much as the minimum wage the world bank says food prices there have
9:39 pm
become the highest in the region saying the hotter has more from parents. for millions of people in lebanon food is becoming a luxury prices had already increased 5 fold since 2019 before the holy month of ramadan began families of muslims are struggling to afford the if tar meal that breaks their dawn to dusk fast. fish prices are insane and they have gone up even more during ramadan a plate of salad will cost $6.00 times more disappear what do we do do we beg we're not used to begging ramadan is an important event in this time a calendar but there are few signs in this working class neighborhood gone are the lights decorations and the vending stalls with traditional drinks that are staples on and if tar table lebanon's economy has collapsed so has the local currency and that's reduced people's purchasing power going to. those who used to buy culo
9:40 pm
vegetables are now buying half while others buy a piece some just walk away after knowing the prices. a month of its star meals for a family of 5 is now estimated to cost $2.00 and a half times the minimum wage which is worth $60.00 at the black market rate and with no hard currency it's that rate which dominates trading. with all our salary hasn't changed but the prices have soared as desperation grows so have scuffles over subsidized goods and supermarkets lebannon imports most of its food and there have been shortages as the government runs out of dollars. despite wheat being subsidized by the government the price of bread has also increased over a month buying a single pack of bread a day will cost more than 10 percent of the minimum wage charities helping the vulnerable have had to expand their efforts unemployment is rising and at least
9:41 pm
half the population of 3000000 people is poor. maya terrell tells me her organization feeds up to 1600 families a months they start if we don't receive the food but this month in my mean that we might not have so far or i mean we have to eat after a long many have had to change their diets some have stopped buying meat and herbes and spices. we used to buy an ounce of paper for 2 and a half dollars now costs more than $10.00 what are the poor going to 8 politicians failing to agree on a reform minded government also means there won't be international aid and now lebanon is on a un list of hunger hotspots. they don't. hundreds of people have rallied in chicago in support of a teenage boy who was shot dead by police there's outrage too about the shooting of a young black man by police near minneapolis steering a traffic stop they've been several incidents during the past month which have
