a this abusive government can only loomis one of the arresting would be a huge mistake. because i don't but i don't but i i think caracas why the call for more protests to increase the pressure on the duro to step down. the phone saturday will continue in the streets all of venezuela will return to the streets decided and determined to mobilize in search of their freedom everything but imo it will not rest one second until freedom is achieved look at all of you say one of the again that i would add that you have. on sunday he warned of a duro if the government takes him into custody it would be a grave mistake perhaps the last. resort. so the country's. interim president has had a hero's welcome but how important is this protest stuff for him and put that question to our correspondent how to get us in bogota in the words of one way or we already heard that he is planning another mass protest action for saturday and he

9:05 pm
crucial question is will the military support him and that is the showdown that we will have to expect in the coming days. get this report now to the united states where at least twenty three people including children have been killed by a powerful tornado in the state of alabama tens of thousands of homes are without electricity buildings and infrastructure have been destroyed and damaged rescue teams are searching for survivors amid the debris. a tornado films from a far as it wreaked havoc in alabama. and this is what it left behind. the devastation is all too clear to see in the small community of borough god one of the areas west hit in lee county. here the violent twisted destroyed everything in its path. the damage is significant i would put it in the category of catastrophic based on the destruction of the homes
9:06 pm

9:08 pm
a fifth term in elections next month people across the country have been taking to the streets a day students in algiers been boycotting classes president bush is like it says he will step down within a year if reelected one opposition presidential candidate has quit the race a. journalist a sufi and philip and has been out amongst the protestors and joins us on the line from the algerian capital algiers so welcome to day double what's happening now. i'm deducing what is this is a main street in downtown r.g.s. connecting gone past and trucks on there are two of the main squares in the heart of the capital where our protest happened in the park studio but it's quiet there was a lot of police forces deployed. during the whole game thought to be a protest happening in school can you negotiate during the day and a little bit in the city center but it's quiet and people are actually getting used
9:09 pm
to going to protests. talking to one protest where factor in the capital. since last. second doc had very very good luck getting used to it again and it's turned something quite normal. and so two questions in one what is that main objection to the president standing again what is embolden them to take to the streets despite this ban on demonstrations. there were like strikes and social economic protests all over the country in the last years but usually locally and very small and. usually when you switch to protest movements like this game momentum you need a combination of social economic and political sectors and the fact that. didn't speak to his people since two thousand and twelve he had a joke until the end of the life on a regular basis that. fed up by the fact that they do not know who's actually in
9:10 pm
charge of the country. who are ruling or not. for years but you could do a country know who is in charge so. dark that was necessary to get popular mobilization like this. the 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. or talk only several hours after this announcement when. the staged a spontaneous protest all over the country. or just look out here there are no protests at night usually the protests have been in the morning and during the day on sunday nights eight nine pm for just a staged all across the country and they were like who are you doing on t.v. and in the morning even and on. a lot of protests seven a lot of gatherings the main square as police helicopters in the air on city and in
9:11 pm
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. just a step down otherwise the. result his intention to. to run for president otherwise protesters definitely go on. in algiers thank you. let's take a look now at a disease which is seeing a global resurgence missiles 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 a third of cases were reported in europe with the biggest outbreak in ukraine there they've seen more than twenty thousand cases in the first two months of this year alone and eight people have died the conflict in eastern ukraine has contributed to
9:12 pm
this spike as well as a low vaccination rates of just forty two percent there is 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 of public health officials say could have been prevented if safe effective vaccines have been used but there and elsewhere i mistrust of vaccines is growing the government has responded by launching a major immunization drive. temps have been erected to deal with the overflow inside the sickly in wait worried parents watching on the philippines has been created by measles outbreak. early and rubeus two month old baby caught the highly infectious virus before he was old enough to be vaccinated. my baby
9:13 pm
had a lot of rations i thought it was because he was getting antibiotics for his cough and cold but it turned out to be measles and it's already painful to see your baby sick even more so when you hear that so many have died because of measles i don't want that to happen to my baby but i am among as i know 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. does this really need to do a d v d's because the challenge is do i thin the herd immunity herd immunity means that you have and i have people who are vaccinated so that those who are not vaccinate that are able to transmit their survival and in fact others. in the philippines have been dropping in the last few years a recent scare involving a dandy vaccine caused immunization rates to plummet even further. of these
9:14 pm
are. the songs. we have a vaccine coverage in the. it even what 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. but you never let us i couldn't believe my doctors said the condition shouldn't affect the baby because i'm at thirty two weeks already. but i'm scared
9:15 pm
you may laugh a little. local authorities are working with the red cross to increase hospital beds for those affected and immunizes many people as possible to try and contain the outbreak mothers like angela are not taking any more chances. are you going out 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 robyn. unicef's the chief of immunization welcome to day what do you think is behind this spike in measles cases. thank you thanks for the opportunity
9:16 pm
things laying by to me this is very concerning and this is why the 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. in addition to the countries you mentioned ukraine philippines and madagascar we have had museums resurgence in the americas. standing out of the venezuelan. crisis and that's a real region that previously been measles free so. the reasons given the diversity in context that measles is really we're seeing needles in is is is very concurrent expensively but an overriding issue is complacency. we have taken it for granted measles has missiles vaccine has resulted resulted in
9:17 pm
. it was a 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 the been seeing. i've seen measles before so the trend perception is not there among communities so the complacency is with the program because they think that perhaps the link is the job is done and in the community in the households because they don't see measles outbreaks anymore you don't prioritize the vaccination and you know i think this shows how the progress of the strong progress we've had over the last few nights decade is is extremely vulnerable if you don't continue now as well as the complacency that you view you've mentioned that's also is there also some of this rising skepticism around the world about whether vaccinations actually useful and might actually it damage children where
9:18 pm
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 as old as vaccines itself it's been there from the get go i think. the difference now is that there are all sorts of social and digital media that can be used and as you know better than me you know media can spread as much. misinformation as much as as as information so i think you know important to also. you know look at you know all this other cause is a very effective non-acceptance i mean access through immunization is still a big problem in many countries including and against god as you mention the people
9:19 pm
that you have a long distances from it seems quality of service is in the job or long distances are not good if they don't get the vaccine then they don't come back but then you've got obviously you know people of color who are open. misinformation and they have a mistrust in the system so they're more and they're going to do need decisions well we thank you for helping us to clear that up robin nandi from unicef thank you thank you. this is d.w. still to come a carnival in germany it's always been an occasion for political satire and this year chance for a bad cause and apparently is going to self into hot water for making an ill advised joke. of the seven week long cool mailer in india has come to an end around two hundred and thirty million people took the ritual dip in the confluence of holy reverse the
