1:00 pm
the coalition fighting a ruling in the south the case is interesting to watch this room out of. yemen war profiteers on al jazeera. this is al jazeera. hello and welcome i'm peter dhabi you're watching the news our live from our headquarters here in doha are coming up in the next 60 minutes a promising vaccine for coated 19 faces its 1st academic hurdle and optimism is high. a long night of talks but no resolution e.u. leaders go into their 4th day as they debate and $857000000000.00 coronavirus recovery from. china sees the worst flooding in decades the authorities say
1:01 pm
24000000 people have been affected plus it took me a long time to get well about 6 weeks before i found sort of normal again. we catch up with a former 19 patient from new zealand who tells us what life is like for her today. and i'm pieced image of all your sports as a limb pick hosts japan come under fire following claims of athlete abuse across 50 sports. let's get going more than 14000000 people have now been infected with covert 19 around the world and more than 600000 die the pandemic has up ended our daily lives and many are wondering how close we are to a vaccine well researches around the world are racing to develop more than $150.00 potential vaccines there are for providing some positive results. there's the
1:02 pm
university of oxford astra zeneca which is testing its vaccine in big numbers of people in the u.k. south africa and brazil it's expected to release the results of its 1st human clinical trial shortly in australia the university of melbourne and murdoch children's research institute is also conducting phase 3 trials and chinese companies sin of rock and sin a farm well they've both moved to phase 3 testing in brazil and also in the u.a.e. sara gilbert is a research leading the trials the university of oxford speaking virtually to members of the house of commons the british parliament in london she said her team is still testing for how long the vaccine will provide immunity to the virus nationally quite immunity to other human actions it is relatively short that we don't get reinfected sometimes quite quickly but that doesn't necessarily mean it will see the same thing with the vaccine because the vaccines have a different way of engaging with the need system and we follow people enough that
1:03 pm
since it is using the same type technology to make vaccines several years and we still see strong in responses so again it's something we have to test and over time we can't know until we actually have the data but we're optimistic based on areas that is that we will see a good direction immediate deep several years at least and probably better than nationally quite immunity live now to our correspondent paul brennan in oxford so paul the trial that's going on there what can we expect to hear today that we think . well it's interesting i mean we know that the university of oxford trials with astra zeneca prepared to actually do the manufacturing we know that they have progressed now to phase 3 so large scale testing what we're waiting for is the publication in the medical journal the lancet of the results from phase one that's back in april where they started with just 500 volunteers so what we know is that there are no major side effects otherwise they couldn't have gone to face 3
1:04 pm
but we don't know is the detailed data of what they found out during that phase one stage indications are over the past few days sources and reports indicate that the oxford university general institute vaccine program appears to be producing a double impact in the volunteers both an antibody response antibodies are y. shaped proteins which attach to the virus and essentially lock it in prevent it from infecting human cells or and also a t. cell response as well now 70 cells are regarded as killer cells and they go after the virus and actually eliminate and kill the virus so for a program to be developing and having to double the response that oxford university appears to be getting that's very positive but what we don't know yet is that is the data and that's why the publication in the lancet at some point today we don't know a time yet at some point today is being so keenly anticipated because it will have
1:05 pm
a huge impact. for research all around the world the u.k. government paul invested in what is it 3 or 4 trials so clearly offsetting that against what's going on where you are it's almost like number 10 is kind of hedging its bets almost. for good reason i mean epidemiologists and virus researches know from bitter experience that 9 out of 10 virus trial programs essentially end in failure and the the program goes through but the outcome is not what what was hoped for and so the u.k. government has decided that as well as putting a deal in place for 100000000 doses of the vaccine should it come to fruition from here in oxford university that also they've done a deal that was been announced today with a german u.s. consortium by pfizer and also one with
1:06 pm
a french company called val neiva now 30000000 doses from bio and tech pfizer. $60000000.00 from valmy of are there 2 and the reason why they're doing that is because each of these different vaccine programs are looking at different aspects of the vaccine different types of vaccine from the eva for example deactivate the corona virus and put it in into the body that way that's a very traditional way of vaccinating the oxford university looked at a genetically engineered vaccine so the different types different classes of vaccine and with the failure rate that you see in vaccine trials it's prudent to actually hedge your bets invest in lots of different vaccines in the hope that one of them actually comes to pass ok poll we'll wait for that publication in the lancet good to talk she will catch up with you later paul brown reporting live from oxford university it was their 1st face to face meeting in brussels since the virus pandemic began and talks between e.u. leaders were planned for just 2 days but now they're heading into the number 4 set
1:07 pm
to resume in the coming few hours after an all nighter ended without agreement at stake an unprecedented $2.00 trillion dollar budget that includes $857000000000.00 for post virus economic recovery for the hardest hit nations within the e.u. now this is where the do. agreements like the e.u. is for biggest economies france germany italy and spain well they're on the side which favors most of the money being paid out in grants the other side is led by the so-called frugal 4 that's the netherlands austria denmark and the swedes as well they want smaller grants and bigger loans then there are other countries such as hungary in poland they object to the proposals being tied to democratic rights life now to john psaropoulos who joins us from athens so as far as the government is their concern john what's the big issue for them whether it's grants versus loans and tagging it to democracy slash human rights. well greece is
1:08 pm
a country that is already paying 3 and a 3rd percent of its economy every year servicing all of those emergency loans that you remember greece took from its european. com raids its euro zone partners back in 2010 to $15.00 it's going to spend the next 40 years paying 2.2 percent of its g.d.p. repaying those loans that economists say is an unmatched record if greece actually pulls it off historically no country has spent that long paying that much of its economy on servicing debt and yet here is greece saying we fully back a common recovery instruments backed by all the european union countries which will eventually have to be repaid over a 30 year period after a moratorium but which greece is willing to join in paying why because greece stands to suffer a 9 percent recession this year it wants to offset that recession with immediate
1:09 pm
handouts money that doesn't have to be repaid and then yes it is also willing to borrow from that recovery instrument but it would prefer obviously the grants are greater than loans in this instance because this is an emergency affecting the entire continent therefore greece hopes that everyone will back that way of thinking the recessions that italy and spain the looking at or even worse they are 11 percent for spain and $11.00 and $3.00 courses for italy possibly the european union's deepest this year so those countries obviously stand to gain even more and stand to lose more if negotiations don't go well in brussels at the moment greece is staunchly backing the initiative of france and germany launched back in may and picked up by the european commission what the greek prime minister had to say was that. compromises must of course be made but they should not be such as to water
1:10 pm
down the level of our ambition regarding a bold european response to the coronavirus crisis and we can also forward so periods of i did or week. john the greek government i mean it's got form when it comes to its relationship with the e.u. out of brussels and strasburg the european commission as well when it comes to not blinking 1st when they get into these big sums of money discussions about who gets what and when is it your sense there today that the greek government is just quite happy to say no this is our line in the sand we are not going to change our position. well the greek government stands with a bloc of countries and its position is not isolated the way it was back in 2010 to 15 when it was negotiating for 3 emergency loans clearly for itself but in this instance i think greece is in the majority and it is willing to back the plan that
1:11 pm
france and germany will eventually compromise on they are the ones taking the lead in this negotiation with the so-called frugal for but greece for greece there is a great distaste in this discussion because it because it is highly reminiscent of the north south divide created in europe during those dark days of the great global financial crisis and the great great depression in which northern europe wanted extremely stringent controls on the way in which the money that was lent to the southern debt stricken countries and ireland would be spent greece felt that there was a lack of solidarity in the european union at that time and that divide is now reemerging and haunting the europeans again i think for the greeks that is the biggest problem the fact that. from the greek point of view northern countries which are relatively well off even though they too are going to see recessions of 5
1:12 pm
to 7 percent which is nothing to sneeze at aren't actually from the greek point of view realizing that all europeans are in this together john many things john psaropoulos our correspondent there reporting live for the news hour from athens let's get more on this joining us here on al-jazeera petroff for selassie is the secretary general of the european movement international and see civil society network promoting european integration he joins us on skype from brussels petrol. good to talk to you again why is this taking us so long. these documents are on the table is ours and i'm president of nature it is very hard to find common ground among all member states at all there are areas necessary for you to move forward in unison and as it is out there remains in a bit longer it is in a disappointing because there the crisis before us is enormous and b.
1:13 pm
these 2 are. probably what is better than waiting it be more try and get the writing clear the rocks ain't do that but it is there given that they've come up with agreement lights over the past few days is there another agree on an agreement that they can thrash out today having been up all last night last night into the wee small hours of this morning is there another agreement they can come up with that everyone could sign up to. i believe that there is we're just going to have to leave us find out more nationally sure and considerations of c.n.n. but he didn't dominate the thoughts by certain leaders so they would have to leave those outside anything about the public you know be any interest because when the you are strong that's what everyone but in the weekend is bad for everyone on tour so it is imperative what their side national to do relations and sing about the common european to bear arms on and they wouldn't be and obviously wait cancel that
1:14 pm
screams my mate everything reasonably consider or squares my theory but this isn't the time for you know we're used to seeing that doesn't mean that i've got to be our leaders rather than just not humanly ok was or is angela merkel emmanuel mack or the of a hiding behind this kind of photo naivety if you will because clearly from the outset not this summit the last summit which was you know more than a few months ago now it was always predictable surely that the poles the hungary and the latvians the lithuanians the a stone ians they were all going to have problems with not only the amount of money but how it was utilized and handed out within the e.u. . i don't think it's important of not even given their ambition here is brig and that was that we face high stakes risks especially when it comes to issues like your body it's embarrassing for me you lose the principles and i'm sure.
1:15 pm
especially marcy i cruise europe is respecting the bank even strengthen so i think in this particular game celebrity is the crossroad and we're going to hear it but conversation that needs to be about it's unfortunate that there are conversations taking place at the same time i was a huge amount of money or that they will at least never ends but i think everybody is clear that i did. what the injuries are and then their. conversations but we are ok here's the thing though when you say it's important it's crucially important that the e.u. sticks to its principles if they watered down or jettison say some of those central messages to member states when it comes to human rights and you know governance good governance etc that means that they'll spin it as we've got a deal and it's not a case of don't do as i do do as i say but the reality of the agreement before the money starts flowing the reality of the agreement will be something opposite or different to what they're describing it has. yes but i think then we need
1:16 pm
a large degree of speeding not so much in brussels buying more 'd so the times everybody must come out of these negotiations looking like the winner at the big park i think is the formation to seat firstly the size of the magnitude of their of their explant but these on the table at the moment then i believe that we beat and i believe in and 2nd of all of the need for the ulu i wasn't the ceremony stand the founding principles of that you know we approach it and there there is a much longer palmer decision making what leaders will sit in her game but the e.u. isn't just with the sentiment either of us from member states you're probably you know the information you have with european parliament that elected then babies who would have the city on their own it is like there are a lot and immigrants here live in the you so whatever we haven't really prominently and booked this process improvement and now we're next 3 it was the need to be
1:17 pm
scrutinized and the lies beneath the men on the believe in each of them and of course in grooming ourselves and yours in similar society lot of the export markets will not make for the finest dollar you know out of that window once the agreement sprouts are ok we have to leave it there petro facilis in brussels many thanks. ok we're talking about in part the frugal for one of the for the netherlands step us in is our correspondent in amsterdam step what's the problem there with what's on the table so far. well i mean that's the market is playing well for sure he's been called all kinds of names like mr no no bad guy who'll talk to teens actually seen as the leaders of both 4 but he's undeterred so. has the backing of parliament here and that lens and also a march part of the population the recent survey showed that 61 percent of the
1:18 pm
population here in the netherlands is not supports and concentrate but it's been for a long time already that many dutch people feel that pain too much european country is the conscience they also feel bad about the fact that they have to work here until they are stopped 6 years old or they can retire well in something you are in states the age of retirement it's much earlier and so what mark really pushing for is that he can throw economic reforms in the companies where the money is going to and that's of course a lot of but he also has elections coming up and that's not our key elements here in this whole fight that he's fighting bronson's because next year's elections a big competition with the right lane 5 and the right thing artists here and that very risk out they also have said they want to be you so basically it's nice that you're outside but also when elections and to win votes in ways. margaret is making
1:19 pm
is hardball and also. international growth by itself but gauging by what he's doing so still very confident he gets all the attention he gets all that this incident european leader he has and fortunes and it seems that that that that lends is not trying to. but it seems that roxanne wants to play a much more important role after breakfast it's. interesting backstory the domestic political story i guess as well step thanks very much to us and our correspondent there in them. today we have got lots more for you still to come here on the news hour including new restrictions coming into effect in hong kong as the territory sees a surge in the number of new infections. and we'll look at how chile's low income neighborhoods are coping with the economic impact of the pandemic. gold has a new number one of spain's john rom replaces worry mcelroy the top of the standings that's coming up with peter in about 30 minutes.
1:20 pm
the authorities in hong kong have tightened restrictions to stop the spread of coronavirus the territories leader kerry lamb announced the measures after 108 new infections were confirmed on sunday the highest one day increase in cases since the pandemic began she described the situation as critical and said this quote is no sign it's coming under control from hong kong adrian brown explains the reasons behind the rise in numbers. up until a few weeks ago hong kong was recording a 0 infection rate but now in the past 2 weeks we've had more than 500 new infections now as to why that has happened well there are different interpretations certainly some commentators are suggesting that it's complacency hong kong that its guard down after social distancing rules were relaxed several weeks ago that meant
1:21 pm
that people returned enthusiastically to bars restaurants and of course to the beaches medical experts offer a different view they point to hong kong's existing quarantine arrangements which exempt from quarantine people like pilots and crew mariners sailors as well as the drivers of lorries of bring essential food supplies into hong kong now the hong kong government argues that if they were to place that category of workers into the current quarantine restrictions it would affect every put hong kong's food supply driscoll and they're not prepared to do that so i don't think that's going to change meanwhile the media on the mainland says that they believe the recent protests as well as an unofficial poll that happened here in hong kong last weekend in which more than 610000 people took part is another reason why the virus is spreading now on sunday night the chief executive carol lam said the situation was
1:22 pm
in her words critical and she also said she wasn't sure when this new outbreak would be brought under control what is really worrying the government i think is that 40 percent of the new infections have no known source. well from hong kong to india where another $40000.00 people have now tested positive for curb it 19 within the last 24 hours that's taken the total number of reported infections to more than 1100000 from new delhi is elizabeth random with the latest on what is the world's 3rd worst affected country. india has recorded it and now the highest single day rise in cases more than 40000 and nearly 700 deaths on sunday it's now taking india just 3 days to add 100000 cases last week it was taking 4 days and it took nearly 2 months to go from 0 to the 1st $100000.00 cases it's now taking
1:23 pm
just 3 days to add one 100000 the worst affected state remains with over 300000 cases it's tally has now surpassed that of spain's it's adding around 10000 nearly 10000 cases every single day and the hotspots in maharashtra and the state of moving from the financial capital by to less developed parts of the state and that's something that we're seeing around the country and that's a big concern as the worst affected areas move from the major cities which have the best health care infrastructure to less developed rule areas with a very national health care infrastructure apart from the worst affected states. and we're seeing a number of lockdowns around the country a state governments try to slow down the rise in cases we are also seeing certain states really increase testing so they can better detect but it's really important
1:24 pm
to remember that old india has scaled up testing and is conducting around $300000.00 tests every single day that still one of the lowest per capita number of tests in the world and independent health experts say that the real number of cases and india much higher than what's reported several egyptian prisons and police stations and breaks of coronavirus a report from human rights watch says at least 14 prisoners and detainees who died from complications is calling on the government to improve its testing and medical care about 13000 prisoners have been released since late february. to ensure rains in rising river water levels of swept across southern and central china at least 140 people are dead or missing nearly 24000000 people are affected by the worst flooding to china in decades weather experts say global warming is partly to blame katrina new reports from beijing. villages submerged and thousands of homes

making it worse fasten that hour of the vision a study shows that global climate changes let the extreme weather regions of our country is located in the area that is sensitive to the climate change people living in sichuan province have begun cleaning up with more heavy rain expected this week soldiers are reinforcing dikes in who they province the dell years has devastated communities still struggling to recover from the curve 900 pandemic economic losses are estimated at $12000000000.00 chinese authorities are desperate to avoid a repeat of 1998 when extreme flooding left more than $4000.00 dead and $50000000.00 homeless katrina al-jazeera. gunmen have attacked a village in the northwest of nigeria killing at least 20 people the overnight attacked. state let's get the latest now from our correspondent joining. a live
1:27 pm
on the news from a belgian what more do we know about these attacks. well basically the attack was carried out late at night on sunday into monday morning when the villagers were holding a wedding party gunmen invaded the community and started my shooting and killing people more than 20 other people have been taken to hospital now some with critical injuries now this is the continuation of the kind of violence we've seen in northwest nigeria in could do an estate in particular conflict between farmers and cattle herders is not a new thing but then banditry as the oarfish officials call it has been on the rise for more than a year now or those soldiers have been deployed in that area it has not solved the problem rather it's expanding to other states in the north west in cuts in a state for example yesterday soldiers were killed while they were approaching
1:28 pm
a camp known unknown camp for bandits in g.b. a local government area in cuts in a state at least 20 soldiers were killed according to local reports but the military authorities are just confirming that he just killed one officer and 2 other soldiers in that in that incident however the military also saying that they've killed 17 men during that particular attack so the crisis in northwest nigeria is spinning out of control largely because over the last 2 decades or so all the authorities in nigeria have field to rainin seasonal clashes by farmers and cattle herders now everybody is cashing in on it groups band it's like they're called as well as armed groups in that region are coming in we've also heard about m groups from the public crossing into northwest nigeria attacking communities
1:29 pm
taking away cattle and other valley. balls and run back into the neighboring countries where no problem is holding several communities hostage in the north east of the country as well and so are fishes i've been suspecting that some of these armed groups that we see in northwest nigeria have elements of boko haram fighters who come in to execute their strategy gather them together some money and go back to the northwest and finance the operations in the north east of nigeria ok we'll leave it there are committed risk thank you very much a correspondent there live for us in. saudi arabia state media reporting king solomon has been admitted to hospital for medical checkups the 84 year old monarch was taken to king faisal specialised hospital in the capital riyadh early on monday he's reportedly receiving treatment for inflammation of the cold blood of iraq's prime minister has postponed a visit to saudi arabia in the lights of the king's illness mustapha was expected to travel to riyadh on monday the 2 sides had planned to discuss

1:31 pm
country assamese hilly country in the northeast vineyard of course it all goes into the delta country which is bangladesh unfortunately forecast wise you can see from this wiggling orange that the biggest showers the biggest thunderstorms the monsoon time for the next day or so are going to be in the northeast of india actually right back up to northern pakistan with a take you had 3 days the accumulation of rain which is this orange heart a half to one meter more of rain falls in the same area that's currently experiencing extreme flooding the brother pewters versus bank this is not going to help so now as one consequence of the monsoon another consequence where you feel the humidity in there get the rain is in the middle east temperature wise is the hottest time of the euro yesterday had 52 degrees no record but pretty hard unfortunately although you get temperatures over a similar level down in doha of 40 degrees that's a humid 40 but no rain beater and i discovered it feels like weather up yesterday
1:32 pm
which is the scariest thing ever for of sochi later. still to come here on al-jazeera we'll look at whether the $1000000000.00 u.s. college football season will be able to kick off this year. and in the week the turkey lympics which is big in japan is facing claims of athletes abuse peaceable now more on that story in the sports news. growing up and harsh and unforgiving circumstances children learn to play dangerous games they exist without studies that the store the house and take worn down by frustration and broken promises young men living under the constant threat of imprisonment but took me to the cheap and blindfolded me the time for them to regain control of their lives is when the boys returned prison life inside and out . on al jazeera. setting the discussions we are living at
1:33 pm
times when we are going to have to defend our democracies examining the headlines this is not the way to treat a migrant workers law the way we treat human explore an abundance of world class programming designed to insult them motivate and inspire. the world is watching on al-jazeera. you're watching the al-jazeera news are welcome if you're just joining us my name's
1:34 pm
peter davi let's just take you through our top stories the u.k. has signed deals for 90000000 doses of 2 potential vaccines is also signed a deal for a 1000000 doses of an antibody treatment reports on the early stage of a human clinical trial is expected later on monday talks on a virus economic rescue package for the e.u. will those discussions are entering their 4th day leaders meeting in brussels have been unable to agree on how to distribute the $857000000000.00 recovery from. tarantula rains and rising river waters so swept across southern and central china at least 140 people are dead or missing nearly 24000000 people are affected by the worst floods to hit china in decades. of course some of the worst aspects of the coronavirus is sitting at home thinking about the haughty ifs and the potential consequences if you contract is coronavirus or full blown coke at 19 some people
1:35 pm
asymptomatic some people very much not asymptomatic and that's even before you deal with all those reports there on social media of people being diagnosed and told you can leave hospital only to come down with another physical ailment at some point down the road 234 months later joining us now here in doha is dr patrick tang a medical microbiologist and division chief of pathology sciences at the sidra medical and research center dr great to talk to you again so 1st before we have a conversation let's just play you a little sound bites of one woman we spoke to here on al-jazeera janine crossan is based in new zealand she had the virus and told us how it's impacted her health. to be honest i don't remember a lot of that and i think my brains block some of that because it was quite traumatic. it was very scary i had a lot of anxiety throat i remember feeling very sick but it was so unknown and.
1:36 pm
the tight time heals all wounds as you can imagine and for months on life has moved on from somewhat a new zealand so i feel very very fortunate for where i'm sitting today i was in hospital for 4 days and. i was an isolation ward i was one of the 1st hospitalized patients in new zealand i think a lot of that might have been course it was very early days and i was relatively high profile enough looking after me in the hospital system was an overload but i was i had a terrible. risk terry issue and my chest was just i was really struggling to get it through and i couldn't stop the coughing and it was coarse and i'm uncertain so they were keeping a really close eye on going to me a long time to get well about 6 weeks before i found sort of normal again but the lingering effects have been substantial to the point of i've actually had a surgery this week to into make sure it's this which i haven't had a flare up in
1:37 pm
a long time post having had a hysterectomy last year i didn't expect if i had one again and so there is some research around implementation in the body and the connection from covert to him to make sure system course it's really days and no one really notes i had to come off the lots and sup with other people i had to use a big influence in my lungs and as strong as they used to be. i've noticed that there's a big change i'm certainly have a lot more aches and pains in my body but to be honest i don't really know how to treat it drape i mean the lungs are the only thing i can say that are related because i did not have that beforehand and everything else and i really don't know how i'm going to be able to get those answers or or if i ever will ok that's one woman's story dr tank or some of the other short or possibly long term effects that we're seeing now in people who are ostensibly still and now very healthy. well i think you know we're still learning
1:38 pm
a lot about urban 19 and some of the effects that happen to people that have recovered from the illness and it has only been maybe only 6 months where most people have been have had the infection so so you know what we're learned so far right now is that these isn't just that disease a lot it's actually one very important aspect of the information occurred in the blood test and and back lanes a lot of the symptoms that we see in people in the complications in the in the fall in some of the regions that have looked at the recovery patient maybe up to 90 percent of people that have recovered from the virus have some sort of membrane since i'm like what would be fried by the very thing that you have interviewed and he can be an image to the law so we're having some sort of membrane pirate story and sounds afterward or it could be due to inflammation that has occurred in other
1:39 pm
parts of the body. and i think that that mean you explain some very common things that other people have noticed which could include some neurologic type symptoms and have been sort of the brain fog that she has described. is very similar to another the symptom syndrome that that we know about which is my algae and sap and while itis a chronic injury. this is a syndrome that we don't really know what causes it but now that we've had it i'm currently than an event where over many people in the world have had the same infection around the same time we're probably going to be able to learn a lot more about the chronic back hosting back soon after this pandemic ok if you had the chance now to talk to your typical post cove in one team. patient
1:40 pm
