2:07 am
same is true on the gun debate that was another big current in the conversation and in that it's interesting that while people were applauding baiter work and he was saying he would take these assault rifles away from people you know amy club which are said she would not necessarily fund a a mandatory program that they would nestle do a mandatory buyback so again we're seeing a divide in the democratic party between the pragmatic wing that looks i think a bit more realistically about costs and dollars and what they can do versus the idealistic wing on many of these questions. china will exempt u.s. pork soybeans in our bag of cultural products from new tariffs it's the latest in several recent concessions between the world's 2 biggest economies before a new round of talks on their trade war when wednesday u.s. frozen donald trump announces perspire an additional tariffs on chinese goods a massive strike has brought much of paris's public transport to

a storm by putting videos on social media detailing alleged corruption by president c.c. and army generals $100.00 ali worked as a military contractor for 15 years he says they wasted millions of dollars on villas hotels and the seaside palace for sisi he's posting from spain where he lives in self-imposed exile. why spend a huge amount of money building these houses i never understood his decision was he staying in a one bedroom apartment of course not the problem was that stacy's wife didn't want to sleep in the same home when mubarak's wife stayed taken. to a new level i built 5. palace for the president in a military camp in cairo i built a home in alexandria for the c.c. family despite it being an official residence in the same compound the modifications demanded by cc's wife cost more than one point $5000000.00 the army

also ordered me to build $125000000.00 hotel in cairo is 50 to. 100 is the chair of media and journalism the institute for graduate studies he says the absence of evidence doesn't matter to many egyptians egyptians largely know that the government is corrupt i mean egypt egyptians aren't dumb. egypt score is very low on all of the corruption indexes right the more we know about the corruption during the presidency for example so i do know that the military controls the egyptian economy some estimates suggest that the egyptian military controls up to 50 percent of the economy they manufacture bottled water they manufacture furniture they own construction companies and i could go that's a very long laundry list so when he says these things it resonates because people sort of already believe it they're saying now that you know he's a muslim brotherhood sympathizer they're saying that he's got an ax to grind that
2:18 am
we shouldn't believe anything anything that he's saying but the reality on the ground is that many egyptians are watching these videos they're starting to have doubts even sisi supporters are starting to have doubts about his integrity as a leader and about the military's integrity so i think it's significant. zimbabwe's former president robert mugabe will be buried at the national heroes acre in. around 30 days' time. his body is lying in state at the stadium in harare where thousands are paying their respects his family and the government had been in disagreement over his final resting place gabi died last week in singapore at the age of 95. and let's take you through some of the headlines here in al-jazeera now pakistan's prime minister is warning new delhi's crackdown in indian administered kashmir will push more of the world's muslims into extremism imran khan's been holding

spreading diseases and misinformation anti vaccine campaign plane for a rise in preventable diseases in the developed world why is there a growing mistrust of vaccines and what's the cure this is inside story. hello and welcome to the program. diseases that were once eliminated back
2:22 am
preventable illnesses such as measles are spreading especially in europe and north america the world health organization and the european commission joined forces to tackle the issue of the 1st global vaccination summit that. it's nearly 20000000 infants were not immunized last year many of them live in developing countries with for access to vaccines but there's concern at a growing movement against vaccines in the developed world and look at the end of the modern certain parts of the world people are dying due to one that vaccines here people are risking their lives and those of others are refusing them some playing the prevention game prefer instead to play with fire the world health organization says vaccines skepticism is one of the world's 10 major health risks health officials say vaccines save up to $3000000.00 lives each year but in the
2:23 am
past 3 years 7 countries have lost their measles free status including 4 in europe albania the czech republic greece and the u.k. the w.h. says the increase in measles is due to the spread of misinformation on social media about the benefits and risks of vaccines. let's bring in our guests in omaha nebraska we have dr lee hearn his dean of the university of nebraska college of public health and a former senior administrator of the u.s. centers for disease control and prevention in brussels heidi larsen director of the vaccine confidence project a professor at the london school of hygiene and tropical medicine at the lancaster data gathering biologist and lecturer of lancaster university welcome to the program dr hunt isn't it interesting that we're talking about the growing influence
2:24 am
of the anti vacs are not in a desolate country in sub-saharan africa but in some of the most advanced countries in north western hemisphere. no not at all least in the wet and warm and you know in some back seem to have the bends the really the funk you know public health. and people more long in the many in the army and back in bankable leaders and then a lot of misinformation but low and the people being worried about. whether they need a vaccine at all i'm not surprised at all of them backing her and. at meeting their version of it we in the united states. i do we're talking about countries that. vance's in science and technology where you would expect some sense of consensus about the safety of vaccines but that does not seem to be the case well the consensus is and more in the scientific community and not. necessarily the broader
2:25 am
community having said that. not all of science around vaccines is 100 percent certain and that's part of the challenge that we're dealing with there is a. significant amount of science that's quite certain but there is some that's there's some level of uncertainty and risk and that when people as we just heard aren't focusing on the threat of disease as they shift to the risk of the vaccine delicate of those this sense of uncertainty about what those vaccines where is the medical community what was the established of that should be sending a reassuring message to people. i think that the authorities are already doing their best to reassure the general population as best they can and the problem at
2:26 am
the moment is that more and more people in the developed world are getting their news via unofficial china as they're using social media applications and they're using general internet searches to get information about things they don't necessarily see the public health messages that are coming out there i also think as the last contributor mentioned it's to do with the perception of of risk i'm sometimes asked if i can get an t. that such and such a vaccine for instance is 100 percent safe and we can never guarantee that because no medicine is ever 100 percent safe even something as simple as an aspirin can't can be deadly of tikkun wrongly or taken into higher dose so it's not normal nor more or less safe than many other things that we do in our daily lives like driving a car getting on an airplane and so on these things are not 100 percent safe either but many of us do them all the time because the risk is acceptable and the general
2:27 am
population need to get the message that vaccines are an acceptable risk and that the relative risk of not being vaccinated is actually much greater if you if you don't vaccinate your child then the risk of your child contracting measles and then suffering serious side effects as a consequence is viral greater than any time that there might be from an adverse reaction to a vaccine with the harm this perception. and derek were talking about is this something that has to do with a lot of debate that was lost in the late ninety's when the doctor said there's an established coalition between vaccines and developmental disorders. to some extent but that is that study were burned. and the author of the study was far from that it or complete ortler publication so it's partly it's part of it but it's not the whole issue you know i've been putting my dad around privilege and potentially why. where are you going to tell
2:28 am
him not. and as we were from our theme folly they don't. do you good now to focus on misinformation and they issued the whole perception changes at that point when your child has been dying of i mean yes in our generation parents would were lining up to get their kids back it was sending them out in the summer because the program would get cripple you don't see that in the united states and more you don't see the impact of it syria or meet the u.s. and more and. say well why was it back to made it and your sense by breaking that social contract that we have that. in fact maybe and to protect our whole community we have to all get back. to a sink to build consensus in the community you need to in
2:29 am
a way or another to have the boxes on board however this is what they will tell you doctors the medical community is creating an environment of fear and describing them as demons. how do. can you build bridges between the different communities. well i think that the sensationalized media are all are creating a kind of vaccine cop us i'm in a sense of how they're creating you know there's the public and then there is the you know the elites but there's actually quite a spectrum of people in fact the majority of people arbitrate between the 2 ends of 100 percent confident and the anti a now there are the serious anti and aggressive efforts which is a very small but very vocal and sometimes aggressive growth but 80 percent of the
2:30 am
people on the metal i would say are asking reasonable questions so i think it's really important that in terms of building bridges we don't lose that that population that when they have questions they're not feeling. a looked down upon for asking the question that we make every effort for those who are very much . open to questions are open to are discussion that we engage and we make that extra time that's needed we need to build a resilience in this group that are somewhere sometimes on the fence because if we don't help build their resistance they're much more vulnerable to the misinformation that is out there or do you have a concern that if the until a vaccine campaign continues to build momentum the very notion of immunity woods because of we would see. disease as the eradicate to come back.
2:31 am
in theory that's possible for any disease where vaccination simply stops but in the case of measles it we it doesn't take very much of a reduction of talk in order for measles epidemics to start taking hold again because it means it was this is so very very infectious it's the most infectious if we nor and it has a rep factor which is a statistic we used to to estimate the number of cases or the number of new cases that any one case will give rise to something like 15 so any any measles case will produce another 15 cases in an unprotected unvaccinated population and at those levels of infectiousness in order to have heard a minute we have to have extremely high levels of the population vaccinated and well in excess of 90 percent no currently at the moment we're just teetering really on the on the borderline currently in in many developed countries so it's fairly
2:32 am
likely that museums welcome back and of course we have seen the united kingdom and other countries lose their muses free status as a result the world health organization is urging social media firms to do more to combat misinformation on vaccines what do you do about it where you start with not giving people focus information and that's really what we're calling for by working with faith who can pay interest and instagram to say take the false information of whether it's not scientific facts take that away and then again give people a real choice but a well informed choice by showing them really what the evidence in the dating is ali we're talking about 2 different angles of this story which is the medical aspect which is convincing people that vaccines are good for the kids and for humanity and the one which is purely legal about the need to combat misinformation what do you think should be the top priority now. there's a lot of reasons why we're back. back in nation and i want to go back to our
2:33 am
commentary about let's not lose the majority of people in the middle what we can potentially sway that may help a better measure and i'd like to start at the point the recognizing that except for a group of back in paris and that number of countries. here in the west back then see people love their children as much as anybody else and if we can approach them from that aspect and if we can approach them from the trust aspect we can help get them back to make it and helping the create misinformation by making social media a lot more responsible it's absolutely the way to go in new york city actually we started seeing the media being a lot more response and that the doing and about social norming that we get our kids back maybe we love our kids everybody loves it but get them back on to civil libertarians would tell you that liberty comes
2:34 am
a ball safety and security and that any attempt to contain the riots is an infringement upon basic fundamental universal laws. well that's absolutely i mean they do have a point and last july the un office for human rights convened to x. extraordinary commission and rapper toured to look into this because they felt like there were a lot of calls on social media to start restricting all kinds of information at they were concerned that it would trespass into that line of freedom of expression particularly in more author or tarion states. to address this kind of difficult line 5 of mitigating without imposing a kind of consensus or reducing presumably expression to what the social media
2:35 am
companies have done and i know and facebook for example has chosen to bring that the accurate information up to the top so without deleting some of the more ambiguous or or negative information necessarily unless it's extreme and it established incorrect. farther down so the 1st thing you see being a card that says you know for the best information go to w.h.o. or c.d.c. or national authorities but the other thing they're doing so one is the prioritization to make the easiest access to the best information and the other is kind of in the back and they are through changing the algorithm says that we're reducing the what we would call the application of race by limiting how they can
2:36 am
the negative or negative and incorrect information ok it's not replicated derrick if we put into place new mechanisms and new laws to prevent social media from being used as a platform to disseminate misinformation with that be enough because many of the until vaccine campaign is will tell you we don't trust doctors. i think that the that's a defensive measure to try to limit the amount of misinformation that's out there are also what we need is an isn't or fence of measure of the medical community the public health community need to to take social media much more seriously and we need to think about whoa we can become social media professionals most of us are not cheap trained us social media professionals we do a little bit of on the side and in a somewhat amateur capacity but opponents some of the anti-vaccination people are
2:37 am
very sophisticated uses social media so we have to get up to their speed so that we can fight on a level playing field with them or on social media another point which was made yesterday at the anti-vaccination. at the vaccines symposium in brussels was that in fact some of the anti-vaccination lobbyists are really just spreading misinformation because they know that misinformation campaign don't fight and potentially to condone rapidly what they're endeavoring to do is simply to spread dote so they don't necessarily give it out any message that you can point to and see that that's completely incorrect and it needs to be removed they're just sowing doubts in in people's mind seeing all these things are not are not completely safe and so forth and that that registers with the general risk aversion and more of the public whereas in fact we nor that these things are not completely safe because no medicine is incomplete so if we have to explain better what the relative risks are than hope vaccination is much safer on the hall than risking contracting the
2:38 am
disease early we have another issue here which is basically it could be millett political when you have communities and areas that allow families to opt out of vaccinations without clear medical reasons. correct and there are all sorts of laws underway provide not to really crack down on medical exemption as they're called and really limit medical exemption when they're only there and that's just one of the many public health measures that we can employ try to make sure that people get back and i if i can just go back to eric point really very eloquent so as physicians and nurses actually rank very high for friday. and our experience here in the united states with a back being the onset of limitations and misinformation is that if your physician
2:39 am
mathematic even act in your lot more likely to get back made it so we need to use that trust as a matter of unity has not reassure people i'm not someone that house a fact these are answers affect their child they offer a lot. i think if you ask anyone in let's say in africa when i come from people would tell you. any disease is just because people have access to medical facilities the debate we're having now is upon something which is totally different a perception among communities in wealthy nations that scenes are not good don't you think that lawmakers themselves should step in and take action. well well i think lawmakers should step in where where there's kind of criminal behavior in a sense and i think that's. very. a challenging decision here i think. that seems our. businesses
2:40 am
that care and children and kill. you know adults as we're seeing with some of the young adults who have missed their vaccines as children but i'm i'm. it is not some clearly have to fight between this being an issue and in western or a more developed countries and not in poor countries we have issues and developing countries the majority of people are not much more to the whole visible signs of these diseases so they want to vaccines but where there are marginalized populations or in conflict situations where for instance we're trying to deliver the a bowl of vaccine or the thing that stopping you know the final or rather key or slowing down the final eradication of polio is because of conflict and poet or the politicization of vaccine campaigns though there are there are anti groups we've
2:41 am
seen what's up in facebook social media are being used in some context to undermine a program that are anti government so that it's a different type of resistance but it's true that at the population who are generally and what's interesting and the difference is it's the mainstream population that is doubting. you know morning developed countries and it's these more. politically or other marginalized or other groups and in other countries so this is not. just. a problem if it's our global problem that plays itself out differently and and really needs our attention and knows that phenomena is connected. we were spoken about different
2:42 am
angles of this story what should the pro-vaccine community be doing what should laws be. reinvented no light on about them about the scientific and the medical community itself don't you see that in a way or another they are losing this battle with in the with the and to vax the narrative what do you think sure the scientific community be doing now. while i have as i mentioned in my stance and i think that the scientific community needs to get much more serious about taking the fight to the anti vaccination activists on social media mainstream media is great for good for getting out its message and we have plenty of opportunity to do that and i often do it on in mainstream television and radio channels but it's far harder to do that on social media because it's sort of and because the special techniques are used for really getting the message across in social media we hear an awful lot for instance suppose you to the influence of young people who are on you tube who have immense
2:43 am
following who are influencing young people in all sorts of ways most of the time it's about lifestyle choices it's about fashion and music and so on but we we need to use some of those young people perhaps to get. perhaps to get the vaccination message out because they would be the ideal kind of person to connect with the millions of of young people who potentially have not been vaccinated and we need to be vaccinated dr hern ultimately we're talking about families with. family doctors g.p.'s abound to go consult them to talk to them about those issues but to give the impression that there's something which is missing here between the practitioner and the family is concerned at the same time this explains what the have the looking for different alternatives correct and so it it's really important to have that relationship with your patients and find them the best possible information then again health care practitioners are very trusted in our community more trust

2:52 am
india administrate kashmir so we will liberate kashmir and with god's will kashmir will get its independence the signal from progress rather. than real you know you are right now no matter what. victoria schofield is an independent south asia analyst joins us now from london good to have you with us so listening in there on some of the excerpts of part of the speech from imran khan do you read into that or between the lines of that great amount of frustration with the level of international response to the kashmir crisis. yes i think there is frustration and there's disappointment however one has to realize that just recently over 50 countries the un human rights council did call upon prime minister modi to end the curfew in. in kashmir valley and so it's
2:53 am
not as though the international community has been completely silent but i think what's difficult is what is the international community going to do when the indian government has already done what it has wanted to do which is revoke article $370.00 i suppose busy looking at impacts from pakistan's perspective and they were hoping for the sorts of measures sanctions restrictions that have been imposed when other countries have acted in a way that's been seen as out of line right here so i think so and again i think when you hear prime minister kan talking about go to going to any measures we have to realize that war is not an option jihad is not an option but what he is indicating is that the whole muslim world is feeling sympathy for the muslims in the valley of kashmir and he's effectively warning that you'll get you're going to get acts of extremism perpetrated in various places possibly outside of india or
2:54 am
within india in response to what's going on in the valley of kashmir given the signal of the comments made by the u.s. president about how he feel or felt that india can handle this one. is that a sign that really pakistan's effort to internationalize this crisis to draw in more parties is failing. well i think i mean president trump has made several comments recently about about the situation he's also said that he's ready to mediate if those countries would like it so he's he's rather free lancing in terms of what he's saying and i think as a situation evolves we could see him saying something different as well or what i do think we're seeing is a very very. explosive situation at the moment because we don't quite know the direction it's going to take and we haven't had yet the curfew lifted once the curfew is lifted you're going to have obviously an even greater reaction within the
2:55 am
valley of kashmir already there have been protests the weather is beginning to deteriorate it's still good and i think what the indian government is waiting for is the deterioration of the weather when it gets more difficult to move about in in the valley of kashmir and we'll probably see a certain love for the next few months but who knows what will happen when when the weather improves within the new year it's still very much an issue in flux and on point to what is the level of repression generating in kashmir right now. well i think it gets difficult there have been certain journeys to be able to go there but the hardest thing for the kashmiris is the total lockdown in terms of internet facilities and and use of use of phones things we all take for granted suddenly you can't you can't ring opinion body the way you've been used to so
2:56 am
communications are back to how they were pretty the internet era and that makes life very difficult for people who who need to need to move about they need for example i have a friend who had difficulty getting medicines for her for a 4 year old son people need to be able to be in communication you've got the elderly you've got a shortage of food you need to be able to get get out to be to buy food now obviously certain element of the curfew has been lifted but it's still an area under huge military presence huge miniature occupation there's razor wire on the streets and so it's not exactly what you'd call the free movement that you would expect from. an area which is in what is termed the greatest democracy in the world or thanks so much for your thoughts and analysis on that. in afghanistan 42 told of armed fighters have surrendered in dakar province they say they're ready to live under government control it's the 2nd significance surrender of anti-government forces in 10 days tony berkeley has more from kabul. the taliban fighters
2:57 am
surrendered in takar province in the north of afghanistan close to the border with to stand they walked into the governor's compound there and handed over their weapons of a k 47 assault rifles rocket propelled grenade launchers and machine guns and said they were now prepared to live under the law of the afghan government but they also said they'd been subjected to intensive aerial bombardments and a big ground offensive by the afghan army they said they suffered more casualties whether or not this surrender is genuine remains to be seed it will be tested over the coming weeks but it's significant because this is the 2nd significant surrender of taliban fighters in the last 10 days including our province $150.00 taliban and perhaps some ice or fighters gave themselves up for similar reasons and it shows that the aerial campaign may be affecting morale of taliban and i saw in that area president trump promised that the campaign would continue that the taliban was
2:58 am
being hit or hit harder than ever before the taliban say also that they are taking territory and they are inflicting casualties on the afghan army president garny the afghan president said today that at least 2000 taliban fighters have been killed in the last week that's disputed by the taliban they say they're inflicting casualties and that's not the case but of course the fighting has intensified in particular since the the abrupt cancellation of talks by president there's no prospect of those talks being resumed in the near future so this violence and these campaigns and the fighting on the ground and the air is going to continue and will be more casualties the latest televised debate between the men and women who hope to take on donald trump in next year's u.s. election has thrown up some stark ideological differences front runner joe biden fought off attacks from more liberal democratic party rivals robert oulds reports from houston texas. there were sharp exchanges as the candidates debated health
