4:02 pm
1500 deaths with a highly contagious variant of the virus suspected also let's remember india is the world's largest vaccine manufacturers so exports of that vaccine are being delayed so they can prioritize the domestic population rising rapidly cases as well in thailand more than 1500 a day they're now anyone who test positive has been transferred to hospital or supervised. elation with no at home quarantine allowed any so let's start with thailand our correspondent tony chang who was able to visit one of these new isolation centers as it prepares to receive its 1st patients. this is the new code 19 field hospital at the bangkok arena in the west the thai capital one of 4 facilities has been set up to deal with the 3rd covert wave that's now hitting thailand all across the country and you can see the conditions are pretty basic they've got a cardboard carton here which is for easy disposal once the patient has been
4:03 pm
checked out after a mandatory 14 days some basic bedding a mosque eterna that will be strong across the top but it's very hot and humid here and when this is filled with 350 people it will not be very comfortable but there is no choice you cannot stay at home if you test positive if you're showing symptoms you'll be treated in hospital as people have been so far but they're now getting so many that they want to remove those people who are asymptomatic from the general population and keep them under supervision in places like this and this is happening all over the country cases arising by the thousands every day and while thailand has been very successful at dealing with covert 90 was the 1st country outside china to detect cases it's also now saying that it is not immune and there's the economic problem to consider as well thailand has protected itself by
4:04 pm
closing itself off it was very hopeful as were many people here that it will be able to open up to tourists later this year as vaccinations became common but the 3rd wave suggests it is not yet ready to open up and thailand's vaccination program is lagging behind with most people not able to register for vaccines until june this year. let's move on to germany which has been holding memorial events for those who died of covert 19 chance. well i'm going to merkel and president frank will to sign my were among those attending over 67 people died on sunday bringing the death toll to just under 80000 all up germany has recorded more than 3000000 cases stephanie deca in berlin for us today stephanie it was quite something wasn't watching those pictures the church service and then the main event very emotional very or steer in a country that has just struggled to get on top of this and
4:05 pm
is fighting to still do that very poignant yes church music classical music words from the president basically telling the families of those whose who've lost loved ones that they weren't alone and reminding people that you know as we always talk about the numbers that these are individuals and stories of tragedies and death and loss that are behind those numbers almost 80000 deaths due to the virus here in germany many of them over the age of 70 come all but as we know now specifically in this 3rd wave in germany a lot of young people getting into the hospital as well so a lot still to be done we also heard from some of the families of those who post away from the virus all very very sad and i think it's an important reminder as this country struggles to deal with the 3rd wave as the politicians bigger as to how best to deal with it chancellor angela merkel has for weeks try to impose strong lockdowns in germany germany is a decentralized system in the sense that the 16 states are in charge of their own
4:06 pm
health care policies so now what we have in the parliament which you can see behind me and also that you can see the flags flying at half staff because of the memorial today but they're trying to debate trying to pass a law that would give more powers to the central government to impose as lockdowns of the chancellor really wants because had such pushback at. right that's stephanie decker live in berlin for us stephanie thank you for that update in contrast israel where today from today people no only no longer need to wear their masters outside schools have been reopened and the latest sign of a gradual return to normal life masks were made mandatory a year ago to curb the spread of coronavirus but now they only need to be worn indoors israel's been able to wind back its restrictions because of a successful vaccination campaign with more than half the population getting both their shots history force in west jerusalem with more. another landmark reached in
4:07 pm
israel's response to the corona virus pandemic on sunday with the dropping of the outdoor mask mandate people are still being told to wear masks in indoor public spaces or if they gather very tightly together in large numbers outside but in settings like this you can dispense with the mask as well as that schools are now back to normal or catch feeling has now stopped class sizes can return to normal and for face to face teaching all of this been made possible of course by the tumbling case numbers at the height of the pandemic there are more than 9000 new cases a day on friday it was just over 100 and that of course been made possible by the vaccination campaign more than 5300000 israelis have had at least one dose that's 57.5 percent of the population with a further 1000000 people having had the disease recovered and therefore have immunity as well and need to. continue wearing it for at least 2 months until the world is making progress like us. but i think there's
4:08 pm
a reason to be happy that we no longer have to wear masks and this is a big success with the vaccination roll out. the memories of the worst of all this for the public and for health officials remain fresh and so there are warnings and caveats being attached to this recent round of success the coronavirus are full one is saying that israel has yet to reach the 75 percent of the population with a new unity that is required for herd immunity so that is a concern as well is that he's warning of possible new variance with a particular focus on one indian variant that has been detected at the airport recently on top of that the director of health at the health ministry has warned that children of course have not been vaccinated those under 16 with 20 percent of teachers also not being vaccinated so no one is yet saying that this crisis is entirely over but this is another day where there is a feeling of returning normality. but how different the situation is in since long
4:09 pm
before the pandemic of course they've had problems there. nothing short of a waste disposal crisis about 2 of the 3 landfills reached capacity 20 years ago now mountains of medical waste are growing that's going to reports a dented can of beans a scratched mobile phone case where some see rubbish the abate boys see money for food the brothers are 8 and 9 years old and admit they'd rather be playing football instead each day they help their unemployed father rummage through this mountain of filth. i am that. i'm going with my father to help him collect things like an 1000000 copper he needs me and my brother to help our kids about. this overflowing dump reached its capacity 20 years ago improperly disposed medical

4:11 pm
from government hospitals there is no standardized protocol and coordination for the safe disposal of medical waste that comes from homes and other sectors. with gaza's 2 of 3 official landfills already full for years illegal dumping grounds have proliferated officials say political differences between fatah and hamas are worsening the problem and we have to to end the vision and to and i mean we have to strengthen the government when government and drama like a bag of the guys from it will make us more strong. the government is working with various groups to devise a plan phyllis would like to see children get paid to help recycle. until then the r.b.a. brothers room the rubbish dump hoping for their next good haul that might earn them as much as $6.00 natasha al-jazeera. and to make matters worse has announced

4:13 pm
were moving on to other news the czech republic is briefing nato and e.u. allies about suspected russian involvement in a huge explosion it's linked to man charged for a separate poisoning attack in the u.k. 3 years ago the ammunition depot blast killed 2 people back in 2014 russian intelligence now implicated the czech republic is expelling 18 russian embassy staff check police say 2 men who were there before the blast had russian passports the names were alexander petrol and bush of now those aliases were used by the pair accused of poisoning the former russian spy it's so gross cripple and his daughter yulia in the u.k. back in 2018 russia's foreign ministry says the czech republic's allegations are absurd also has promised to take retaliatory measures for the expulsion of its diplomats calling it a provocative move so let's check in with our correspondents rory chalons in london
4:14 pm
in a moment to take us through that link 1st of all it's been at smith in moscow more russian reaction what are they saying. this is the biggest dispute between the czech republic and russia since the end of the communist era in 1989 me now the russians say that they've responded their response to the check. kicking out of their 18 diplomats the foreign ministry here says that expulsions from prague are unprecedented and carried out under unfounded and farfetched pretexts russia's foreign minister goes on to say the retaliation will force prague to fully understand its responsibility for destroying the foundation of normal bilateral relations very strongly worded comments from the foreign ministry what the czechs are saying is the czech prime minister says the circumstances are unprecedented and scandalous what they're
4:15 pm
saying is that these 2 man they're members of russia's security services are responsible for 2 bombings and i mean issues depos southeast of prague in 2014 these same 2 men traveling under the name of alexander petro russell on bashir of with the same man wanted by the british intelligence services for the attempted murder of former russian spy or. scripture and his daughter yulia back in solsbury in 28 so that is where the russians are at the moment they're planning their retaliation they say against the czechs in k. thank you bernard smith in moscow and as promised we go to reach chalons now in london barrios hi rory so the link is the 2 men or at least the names isn't it. yeah obviously the names of and bashir of are not
4:16 pm
the real names now western intelligence agencies believe these 2 men their real identities are alexander. chip eager and mission alexander mission and anatoly to peak and they are to g q agents operatives etc d.g. are you being the russian military intelligence and that they come from a particular unit to 9155 and this unit is the kind of guys know the russian action man units that are prepared to go and carry out various dirty deeds around the place including an up to what the russians call work with which is killing and these western intelligence intelligence agencies have now have now kind of pieced together some sort of picture of this unit's activities which
4:17 pm
are extensive in europe over most of the last decade and they include destabilization campaign in moldova and attempted coup in montenegro you've got the script poll poisonings in the united kingdom and you've now got these explosions in the czech republic in 2014 probably those with links to what the russians were trying to do which was towards the flow of weapons from the czech republic through a couple garion arms dealer to ukraine you know the heart of the war in ukraine so this is the kind of. environment this is the kind of picture that western intelligence agencies now have about what the russian g.r.u. intelligence agency was doing in europe over the last few years fascinating stuff isn't it thank you rory chalons in london. now people in eastern ukraine are worried about what a russian troop build up on their border may mean child stratfor reports are from
4:18 pm
here people aren't convinced by russia's reassurances. ukrainian soldiers on the front line on the highest level of alert since the signing of an often violated cease fire agreement with pro russian separatists 7 years ago russia says its deployment of an estimated 100000 soldiers and heavy weaponry to areas near the border with ukraine poses no threat ukrainian military say they are preparing for the worst. is over because i was mobilized and came back to the front line i believe this is a crucial moment to defend my country world leaders and nato have urged moscow to pull back its forces most of these houses were destroyed in fighting in 2015 around a 1000000 people live in a 10 kilometer wide so-called contact zone the stretches on both sides across the front line oxana says she fled with her son genya from separatist controlled areas
4:19 pm
2 years ago yes that's true. i have lived here since 29 i used to live in our lives but i had to flee because of my political views it has been quiet last 2 days but this is the 2nd night in a row my son wakes in the middle of the night screaming there is similar devastation in pro russia separatists control the areas. they have been shooting recently everyone waits but nobody knows how the negotiations will end. the leaders of ukraine russia germany and france the so-called normandy format have repeatedly failed to find a political solution to the conflict crane refuses russia's demand that it talk directly to pro moscow separatist leaders russia refuses to withdraw from crimea. in 2014. and lists a political deadlock on many levels remain the breakdown in the current ceasefire
4:20 pm
was fairly predictable because the sides were negotiating in good faith it's not negotiating in good faith in probably in about october and they'd reached the point where they were instead of trying to find common ground they were deliberately putting forth proposals that they knew would annoy the other side that they knew would be nonstarters and once that starts to happen then you know that the breakdown of the ceasefire is only a small it's only a matter of time russia calls it a military exercise ukraine says it is a dangerous provocation after 7 years of failed peace negotiations the un says almost 3 and a half 1000000 people are an urgent need of humanitarian assistance and protection in eastern ukraine. but al-jazeera. u.s. president joe biden says these treatment in a russian prison is totally unfair and inappropriate earlier this week the u.s. impose new sanctions on moscow for the detention of the kremlin critic as well as

4:29 pm
will be here with the best of the formula one action a little later. frank assessment of. exactly how and why taking such a situation like a month to get informed opinions is the us thinking military positioning in the middle east or is it just a simple act of reorganizing ministry us that this is a message to the region that the united states is rethinking its military posture in-depth analysis of the day school ople headlines inside story. coverage of africa is what i'm most proud of every time i travel whether it's east or west or people stop me and tell me how much they appreciate our coverage and our focus is not just on their suffering but also on the more happy lifting and
4:30 pm
inspiring stories people trust to tell them what's happening in their communities in a clear and i'm biased and as an african i couldn't be more proud to be automated. you know in the news here at al-jazeera these are the top stories india's covert 19 infection rates continuing to skyrocket it's now reported another record number of new cases of the 261000 of them in the past 24 hours on top of that it's running out of back scene supplies and start delaying exports new isolation centers in time
4:31 pm
i mean one of preparing to receive their 1st residents everyone who test positive has now been transferred to one of the sentence or to a hospital registering around 1500 can you cases every day. and check police want to talk to 2 russians linked to a 2014 explosion at an ammunitions depos they are the same man accused of poisoning circus cripple and his daughter yulia in the u.k. back in 2018 we're going to talk to different doll about this principle russia analyst it maple crofts he's with us on skype from london today thank you for your time what's your take on this one as we were saying with our correspondents earlier is the names we know they're aliases in the 1st place that is the names that link here is there enough to think to draw a direct link. whether or not they were directly. what's the evidence that the the checkpoints come comport with that that really the
4:32 pm
story here though 'd is you know we think of this is an incident that happened in 2014 so what's really interesting is why is the czech government taking this action now when it is a very strong action you know it's not a small thing to expel 18 diplomats that's very large by the standards of these kind of actions and it does represent something of a change in prague's posture. so we really do you know the question is whether this is simply 'd a case of you know the investigation takes time this is a point in which the evidence came together that the czech security services felt that they could confidently say yes these are the men responsible that you know this infamous g.r.u. units to 9 months i 5 is the responsible party here and therefore we need to take diplomatic action against russia you know why is this happening now for an incident
4:33 pm
that happened 6 years ago and we would expect russia to take probably very similar action i mean if 18 diplomats were expelled by russia that would leave almost nothing between the 2 countries right as far as diplomatic relations. i mean give america relations will continue between the 2 sides whether it's through informal back channels or you know it remains to be seen whether russia will take the step of sexually exploiting all of diplomatic stock but this does definitely represent a shift in check foreign policy and there are consequences in other areas as well you know prague was famously looking at purchasing shipments of the sputnik through scenes that now appears to be on the table their domestic nuclear regulator and said that most of them will be excluded from any future tenders for the her fishing
4:34 pm
check nuclear power plants so there are definite economic and international economic implications as well. and i'm using the term loosely but is it a good time for the czech republic to do this now with the biden ministration taking the different attack tag than the trumpet ministration certainly did and putting sanctions on itself it's got some backup here. well this is certainly one of the reason why they 'd might be or take action. and certainly we saw on friday by the administration on the 3rd significant new sanctions against russia you know this is a way birth to curry favor with the new administration in washington to show that they're on the same page of the russian policy. and also yesterday to take an action of this kind to really crack down on russian intelligence within the czech republic with that knowledge that washington has their back. so yes
4:35 pm
the you know it's never a good time these kind of things and certainly you know east west relations are in a pretty interesting juncture right now. we certainly would expect that that's that's one of the calculation cadency to why now ok. thanks for making the time for us today we appreciate it. thank you. feel anger about a lack of distribution of wealth is being blamed for the conflict in northern mozambique the world bank says the north south and regional divide could see the fighting spread on the coast. as the support from pemba the capital of competent. 26 year old daughter says he has a university degree but he can't find a job he's applied to the gas companies operating in northern missouri but has been one rejection after another. i think there's some kind of discrimination going on
4:36 pm
these companies have very few muslim because for. most of the jobs and money the foreigners and government officials even jobs for mechanics and electricians they don't hire many of us. got a province in northern mozambique is where most of the major gas discoveries have been made in recent years but the region has high levels of poverty and inequality when rubies and gas were discovered here many people thought it would mean jobs and life but that hasn't happened instead the poor are feeling more and more marginalized and say only a small elites in mozambique are benefiting. the country's president felipe a new study says he i saw links local armed group that calls itself is manipulating disgruntled youth and recruiting some of them as fighters but very out to ruth says he's not giving up on himself or his country the young farmer wants to grow his
4:37 pm
business and create jobs for other young people. there are always very complicated we don't know all these fighters are they don't show their faces they don't see why they're fighting i want to focus on improving myself. a perceived failure to distribute fast mineral and gas revenues to the local population could be fueling the conflict and till this is addressed analysts say it's unlikely the conflict in the province end anytime soon. al-jazeera. if european prime minister says sudan's fears about the impact of the grand renaissance dam are unwarranted he says the 2nd failing is due to take place during ethiopia's rainy season between june and august and it won't cause flooding he says in neighboring sudan khartoum fears that its own dams will be affected if ethiopia continues to fill the reservoir while egypt says it's
