8:10 pm
in schools and universities during the day and a little bit in the city center but it's quite and people are actually getting used to going to protests since two thousand and one protests to affect a few thousand in the capital. but since last twenty seconds i had really good luck getting used to it again and it became something quite normal. and so two questions in one what is their main objection to the president standing again what is embolden them to take to the streets despite this that based on demonstrations. they were like strikes and social economic protests all over the country in the last years but usually locally and very small and. usually when switched to protest movements like this game momentum you need a combination of social economic and political sectors and the fact that we just
8:11 pm
didn't speak. since two thousand and twelve yet it's just going to the end of the life on a regular basis ever since. fed up by the fact that they do not know who is actually in charge of the country. who are ruling or not as you. for years but the good country know who is in charge so. stock that was necessary to get the mobilization like this. a fact that he announced that she will run again. and what do people make of his offer to stand down in a year if he's elected again. well you talk only several hours after this announcement when a teacher staged a spontaneous protest all over the country. just look algea there are no protests at night usually four to seven in the morning and during the day on sunday nights eight nine pm for just
8:12 pm
a staged all across the country and they were like who are you doing on t m in the morning even and on. a lot of projects happened a lot of gatherings the main squares police helicopters in the air on the t.v. and in the morning so this was a very very clear symbolic sign offs that people do not. were not happy with the solution and. that this was definitely. an otherwise good. result his intention to. to run for president otherwise for just a definite you go on. with a message in algiers thank you. let's take a look now at a disease which is seeing a global resurgence this is measles the world health organization says the number of cases doubled last year to almost two hundred thirty thousand and that's just reported cases the actual number is believed to exceed two million more than
8:13 pm
a third of cases were reported in europe with the biggest outbreak in any ukraine there they've seen more than twenty thousand cases in the first two months of this year alone eight people died the conflict in eastern ukraine has contributed to the spike as well as a low vaccination rates of just forty two percent there's also an epidemic in the african nation of madagascar which also has a low vaccination right more than nine hundred people have died there since september another country suffering is the philippines where more than two hundred people most of them children have died deaths that public health officials say could have been prevented if safe effective vaccines had been used but there and elsewhere i mistrust of vaccines is growing the government has responded by launching a major immunization drive. tents have been erected to deal with the overflow inside the cyclone wheat worried parents watching on the philippines has been created by means of outbreak. early and rubeus two month old baby caught the highly
8:14 pm
infectious virus before he was old enough to be vaccinated. my baby had a lot of rashes i thought it was because he was taking antibiotics for his cough and cold but it turned out to be missiles. it's already painful to see your baby sick what more when you hear that many have died from the disease but you don't want that to happen to your baby. there have been more than eight thousand cases of measles in the philippines since the start of the year the health department has declared a measles outbreak and says that it is now struggling to contain it. really i need to do a d v d's because the challenge is to herd immunity herd immunity means that you have people who are box of a third so that those who are not vaccinate that are able to transmit their. vitals
8:15 pm
and in fact others. in the philippines have been dropping in the last pew years a recent scare involving a dang vaccine caused immunization rates to plummet even further. now these are. the songs. we have a vaccine coverage in the. it even what about the forty percent. efforts to tip the scales haven't been fast enough charmaine such she'd been immunized but picked up the virus at a health center for a prenatal check up measles can be extremely dangerous for pregnant women. i'm scared about what will happen to my baby but i'm trying to be strong. little mother said. my doctor said the condition shouldn't affect the baby because
8:16 pm
i'm a thirty two weeks already. but i'm scared. every local authorities are working with the red cross to increase hospital beds for those affected and immunized as many people as possible to try and contain the outbreak. mothers like angela are not taking any more chances. but the news about kids dying from the dengue fever vaccination scared me so i was scared to have my children vaccinated. but now i know it's for their own safety. immunization rates are steadily rising again health authorities hope that the continued confidence in vaccines will help stem this measles outbreak. so to robin. unicef the chief of immunization welcome to day w what do you think is
8:17 pm
behind this spike in measles cases. thank you thanks for the opportunity things laying by to me this is very concerning and this is why we recently issued a press release as you mentioned it's affecting a very diverse set of countries pretty much right across the globe we have millions in addition to the countries you mentioned ukraine philippines and madagascar we have had measles resurgence in the americas. stemming out of the venezuelan. crisis and that's the region that previously been screened so. the reasons given the diversity in context of muslims is really we're seeing needles in is is is very can contact specific but an overriding issue is
8:18 pm
complacency. we have taken it for granted measles has missiles vaccine is reason resulted in. it he percent reduction of mortality in the last twenty years. we have relatively high coverage with huge pockets of unvaccinated people are not seeing the disease at the levels that been seeing. the needles before so the trend perception is not there among communities so the complacency is with the program because they think that perhaps this is the link the job is done and in the community in the households because they don't see large missiles outbreaks anymore you don't prioritize the next a nation and you know i think this shows how the progress or the strong progress we've had over the last few nice decades is is extremely vulnerable if you don't continue now as well as the complacency that your viewers mentioned that's also was
8:19 pm
there also since some of this rising skepticism around the world about whether vaccinations actually useful in mice actually it damaged children what does that come from. yeah i mean i think you know you're referring to and the vaccine sentiment i think it's important to put in perspective that and even since sentiment is vaccine that it's been there from the get go i think. the difference now is that there are all. social and digital media that can be used and as you know better than me you know media can spread as much. misinformation is magic. as information so i think you're important also. you know look at you know all this other cause that's in on acceptance i mean access to immunization is still
8:20 pm
a big problem in many countries including and against going as you mentioned people if you have a long distances for one of your services in their job or long distance and they're not they don't get the vaccine and then they don't come back when you've got obviously you know people of color who are. misinformation and they have a mistrust in the system so they're more and they're going to do. well with the thank you for helping us to clear that up robin nandi from unicef thank you thank you this is the w. news life from fallon coming up next carnival kicks off in germany it's always been an occasion for political satire this year chance for mass an apparent. force for making an ill advised joke. and just about it first so breakdancing is come
