"Out an ambitious global agenda at the un general assembly. Here's how it compares to reality by ian bremmer. Everything is easier said than done. And that's especially true for big challenges like for example trying to establish america's place in the twenty first century world or persuading other governments to place their confidence in you but no matter how tall the tasks we shouldn't dismiss a presidential speech at the united nations as only hot air with that in mind. Let's look closely at president. Biden's i address to the united nations general assembly last week and compare it with the choices. The biden administration has actually made the agenda biden laid out at the. Un was plenty ambitious. His priorities are ending this pandemic addressing the climate crisis managing the shifts in global power dynamics shaping the rules of the world on vital issues like trade cyber and emerging technologies and facing the threat of terrorism as it stands today does he mean what he says. Covert nineteen biden has pledged to vaccinate the world and he told the un that the us has shipped more than one hundred sixty million doses of covert nineteen vaccine to other countries with promises to do much more through kovacs the global vaccine facility. The president also held a virtual cove nineteen summit meeting on the u. n. g. sidelines last week to demonstrate his administration's commitment to leading the ongoing pandemic response today. The us has donated more vaccine than any other country but to raise the number of people vaccinated worldwide from the current thirty percent to the for seventy percent by september. Twenty twenty. two experts estimate that eleven billion doses will be needed biden has committed the us donate five hundred million more doses of the pfizer vaccine to developing countries beginning next year. But if that goal is to be mad his administration needs a clear stance on booster shots for already vaccinated people and for first shots for less at risk young people mixed messages from the biden administration on this question leave other countries wondering what they can expect from the us and other wealthy governments if they prioritize providing booster shots for their own people it would make the current goals virtually impossible to reach extending covert nineteen's life in much of the world and poorer countries have good reason to be skeptical washington as promised five hundred eighty million doses but has so far delivered. Just one.

"We can leave these decisions in the hands of local communities to try to make these decisions on behalf of themselves I think the more productive of an outcome. You're gonna get more that you're going to get decisions that move in the direction of trying to implement local standards that protect communities. So you're saying that the federal mandate is not the best idea over. That's one thing that the biden administration is pushing. What is your take on the direction. Overall that the biden administration has taken the pandemic response. Look i think that they've done an outstanding job rolling out The vaccine and getting the public vaccinate we now have seventy six percent of the adult population with at least one dose of Covert vaccine most of those individuals are going to complete vaccine series about ninety percent of people who who have an initial Vaccination will complete the series every one percent that we get from here on out is going to be hard to fight for the first vaccine. I twenty percent was a lot easier than vaccine the next one percent. I think on our current ejecta just if we hadn't changed policy recently and had an implemented those broader mandates. I think we would have gotten to eighty percent just on the trajectory that the administration was on We're not gonna get above ninety percent even with childhood immunizations even the measles measles mumps and rebel a good. We might get ninety. Four percent of children back stated most uses ninety percent this year. It's going to be a lot less diptheria in protest the same way. It's about ninety percents. Ten year average Compliance with the child the entire childhood immunization schedules about seventy percent. And these are mutations that are mandated by states for attendance in schools. So i don't think with an adult vaccine. We're gonna get above ninety percent. I think maybe we'll get to eighty five percent question. We have to ask ourselves. Is what price we willing to pay to get from eighty to eighty five percent. Because i think that's what we're really fighting over right. Now that's what that's what we're struggling to achieve. And we also have to factor in that probably that last five percent probably half of them have been vaccine have been Infected with covert and have some natural immunity. That's protective so. I think that the the idea of a federal mandate on small private businesses It's going to be very divisive in this country and we need to ask the question whether or not we're going to achieve enough public health standpoint getting that next three to five percent vaccinated. But what we're gonna pay in terms of making this much more objectively political issue and now having the issue of vaccines be something that becomes a national political issue. I'm not being pollyannish and saying it wasn't a political issue before it certainly was but now it's going to be even more political. You're gonna have governors running for president on this very issue and is that what we want to make this to make this such a national issue. The the best outcome would have been to try to take the temperature down Try to empower people around this decision. There'll be many people who argue with me and say that was impossible. There's no way we're going to do that. And this was the only option. We're gonna pay a price for this. We just need to recognize that. So i wanna talk about this week. There's been some new developments we had Pfizer saying that. They found that the vaccine is safe for children as young as to We have booster shot information coming out. Not just firm. The fazrin medina but also johnson johnson putting out new information this week about the effectiveness of its booster. What do you think these developments will do in moving that three to five percent that you're talking about i think it's i think. The incremental information about the effectiveness of the vaccine is going to continue to win hearts and minds. And i think that the more that this vaccine become something that seems normalized. It's no longer a novel vaccine. It's fully approved. There's been three hundred more than three hundred. Eighty million doses delivering the ice states. Five point eight billion people around the globe have received a dose of vaccine or five point eight billion doses have been delivered globally. The more that this becomes normalized and routinization. I think the more that people are going to feel comfortable with the decision to get vaccinated and the incremental Data certainly has been supportive around all the vaccines.

"The delta variant is driving up the number of kobe nineteen cases across the country and in a handful of states. Such as florida there surging at an alarming rate in fact cases in florida jumped fifty percent in the last week. By friday as you may have heard one out of every five. New cases in the entire united states was in florida. So how prepared or florida hospitals to handle this new wave. Npr's greg allen joins us now from miami. greg. Where is this kovic spike happening in florida. Exactly well we're seeing it state-wide here but the hardest hit area is northeast florida. That's the jacksonville area. Just over half the people over age twelve have been vaccinated in that area and that's lower than the state average. Healthcare officials say some ninety six percent of the patients. They're seeing our unvaccinated. Some hospitals are seeing their most covert patients yet and there's one protection we heard about. It could be another two to three weeks before this surge actually levels off. that's terrifying. Are the hospitals able to handle this in terms of staff and beds. I think so. Hospitals are flexible in their use of space and they can expand intensive care units as necessary. That's been happening. A little bit in some parts of the state staffing remains the biggest concern and a mini hospital said that staff shortages before the pandemic and this new spike. Just makes it worse. Know we're hearing other states. That many younger patients are being hospitalized with kogo. Now what are hospital seeing in florida. Well miami's largest hospital jackson. Health doctors say the biggest increase in hospitalizations has been patients between the ages of fifty and sixty four. But it is true. That more young people are being hospitalized now and the head of florida's hospital association. Mary mayhew told me that some cases they're seeing our severe the shock of seeing a healthy twenty five year old in the icu on a ventilator pregnant women in the hospital being aggressively treated for kovin ios the delta variant is much more contagious in the earlier. Covert virus which might help explain. Why some young healthy people are being hit so hard. Is there any indication why florida has become a delta hotspot. Yeah it's interesting. Florida was actually doing pretty well for a while but cases now have surpassed a peak that we saw set in january adjacent. Soleil me is an associate professor of epidemiology at the university of south florida. He points to several contributing factors if you include children under twelve. There's more than ten million people in florida who have not been vaccinated and has cases have declined. There's also been of course. The decline in safeguards like face masks and social distancing and salami says another factor is florida's heat. It's like the winters in the northeast right. It is driving people indoors more than they would otherwise be in of course the delta variant is just much more effective and efficient at passing from person to person. When we're an indoor setting. We have seen a rise in vaccinations in florida in recent weeks. Especially in the jacksonville area. In the meantime soleil me is a big advocate of using face coverings and social distancing to protect unvaccinated people from becoming infected. Yeah but we know that requiring people to wear face masks is unpopular in some places that includes florida and the governor. They ron disentis appears to be leading that resistance. Yes he's made this kind of a cause. He signed an emergency order last week saying it will be up to parents to decide whether their kids will wear face coverings when class resume at schools in the fall that followed recommendations from the cdc. That children should wear face masks when schools get back in session. Some school districts now are looking at requiring facemasks. Broward county's school district had actually made a decision to do so but then reverse themselves yesterday after looking at the santa's order which could actually cut their funding. Meanwhile some businesses are requiring customers to wear face coverings including disney and some other florida theme parks. Npr's greg allen in miami greg thanks. You're welcome the. Us is on track to deliver one hundred and ten million cova vaccine doses to countries around the world with millions. More on the way hundred and ten million. That's a significant step in the effort to slow. The spread of the virus. President biden is expected to formally announce that number at the white house later today but the number was harder to reach in the white house i expected. Npr white house correspondent timor. Keith is with us tim. walk us through the numbers. One hundred and ten million doses bore on the way where do these doses go. The initial goal was to ship eighty million doses to countries in need by the end of june that proved to be a bit hard. It wasn't until well into july when they finally hit that initial goal but the pace of vaccine sharing has really picked up in recent days. They've gotten more than one hundred million doses delivered and another ten million are on the way out the door. They've gone to more than fifty countries from afghanistan el salvador zambia. It's a big deal but it's only a start. dr krishna. kumar is a global health expert at duke. He told me it's too little and too late. It's more than any other country in terms of donations and yet when the world needs ten billion doses to get to where we need to go it puts it in context. That were a hundred x off where we need to be. The biden administration has secured a contract with pfizer for another. Half a billion doses. And those are starting to go out this month but it could take as much as a year for those to be delivered. Meanwhile the delta variant is ravaging countries in africa and other places with low vaccination rates and as long as cova does out of control. There is a very real risk than another variant could develop. There's this saying the global health community that no one is safe until everyone is safe and delta which was first detected india really drives at home so why have efforts to share the vaccine to the us with other countries been so slow to ramp up. Well i the. Us prioritize vaccinating americans. But when the administration turned to sending doses to other countries the bureaucratic and logistical barriers. Were significant. i interviewed gayle. Smith who is the global cove response coordinator at the state department sharing vaccine. Doses isn't quite as easy as putting on a plane and calling somebody at the other end telling arrive because these are sophisticated medical goods. Their number of legal regulatory steps that have to be on through they had to build teams of lawyers and regulators to work through contract issues on the us side and regulatory approvals on the receiving end in some cases. They're even had to be new. Laws passed in countries to accept the vaccines. It's a process that was repeated country by country. In theory now these pipelines have opened in the next plane. Full of vaccines will be easier to send. But of course it doesn't just end with the of vaccines with an american flag on a tarmac. Those vaccines have to get into people's arms. It less thing ahead of the world health organization said over the weekend that the global distribution of vaccines remains unjust. What does the by administration to that. They say yes more needs to happen. But today they want to celebrate this milestone beyond that advocates are raising alarms about kovacs international distribution vehicle that is struggling to vaccinate the world's poorest countries. They say the us has to step up and take leadership and pure white house correspondent. Timur keith. tim thanks. You're welcome.

"Joe biden says his country has all the vaccine it needs and now he's willing to share the. Us president is at the g seven. Summit in cornwall. England not surprisingly vaccine. Availability is at the top of the agenda this morning. Mr biden announced a plan to buy and give out pfizer doses to countries. That need them most. We have contributed more than any nation to kovacs a collective global effort that is living covid nineteen vaccines across the world. We supported manufacturing efforts abroad through our partnerships that japan india and australia known as the quad. We've shared doses with our neighbors canada and mexico in addition three weeks ago with america's vaccines supplied secured and with confidence. We have enough vaccine to cover. Every american wants one. We announced that we would donate eighty million doses of vaccine in house now to supply the world by the end of june many of these doses are shipping to countries around the world. As we speak and today we're taking a major step that will supercharge the global fight against this pandemic my direction. The united states will purchase an additional half billion doses from pfizer pfizer vaccine. That will donate nearly one hundred low and lower middle income countries. They will be. The beneficiaries may say that again united states will purchase a half a billion doses of pfizer cova nineteen vaccine to donate nearly one hundred nations that are in dire need in the fight against the pandemic.

"On the world stage. I want to start with his first. Stop with the group of seven each on. Can you tell us very basically what is the g. seven and what's supposed to happen at this meeting. Groups of nations are a number of major western economies plus japan. They're all democracies their group of long standing us allies and i it seen as a bit of a club of twentieth century powers. And so you'll see this week. While the g seven meets on a whole host of issues from the pandemic to global tax policy. That will also be a major talking point about their ideological affinities. This is being billed as a meeting of democracies and of course president biden himself is very interested in pushing this line and this washington post op. Ed he lays out his broad thinking as he approaches the trip. And it's something we've heard him talk quite a lot about already. This idea of what he calls a defining moment of our time. This question of whether democracies or autocracies will ultimately run the twenty first century. That part of what he is doing on the world stage and part of what the united states must do in the years to come is low. Hold the line in this kind of global clash between democratic systems and ascendant autocratic or illiberal forces elsewhere. What is at the top of the agenda for biden. I mean what is. He hoping to get done at the g. seven. The bar isn't particularly high for biden. One analyst of european politics that i spoke to said simply that his main role will be to make all this stuff these nato summits as g seven meeting boring again because under trump some of these peace meetings became testy sites of confrontation and pretty emblematic of the uncertainty and doubts that trump was introducing to the transatlantic alliance and to the various tethers of the broader western geopolitical landscape biden hopes to use his meetings also as a kind of galvanizing moment where he hopes to be rallying Us allies around a set of common causes including sharpening the lines of confrontation with china working towards some greater efforts toward bolstering the fight against the pandemic and then in general revitalizing in kind of renovating the various institutions that define the transatlantic alliance whether it's nato or other parts of the western alliance system and all of this will happen before biden goes to geneva to meet russian president vladimir putin and the symbolism of this is very important if you remember twenty eighteen when trump met putin in that now infamous encounter in helsinki finland said. They think it's russia. I have a president putin. He just said it's not russia. I will say this. I don't see any reason why it would be the president. Accepting vitamin putin's denials of russian election interference. Before he had that meeting with putin he had to barnstorm through europe in an incredibly acrimonious set of visits to various places antagonizing. Us allies and saying rather conspicuous things. Many people feel quite insecure about trump's and by extension the us's commitments to elements of european security and the european relationship. And so i think biden is really more than anything looking forward to drawing a pretty stark contrast to trump's dealings with european partners and that'll probably be quite easy for him to do. What is the feeling of european leaders in their relationship with the us. I mean as biden kind of goes on this campaign to try to reset some of our partnerships. Are they open to that. I mean. there's no doubt that the europeans by and large are relieved. That trump is no longer in the white house and in the form of biden. You have a tried and tested american politician who they understand who they can by and large do a lot of work with though is of course important to recognize that there are still elements of trump's trade war and tariffs on european. Still in place. And there's also a broader kind of shift that's happened and that started happening definitely under trump. But we'll continue. Which is the europeans themselves now. More broadly the need for them to somewhat emerge from underneath the. Us's umbrella and they also recognize biden may not be there for that long or that. The forces that put biden into power could lose in elections to come. And there may be new populist nationalist back in the white house not long from now so as reassuring as biden hopes to be there is also about a recognition that western politics so changing and that the kind of guarantees and security. And the things that we're taking for granted saying the last few decades of the twentieth century can't be taken for granted. Now ishani i wanna ask you about of course the pandemic which is raging pretty much everywhere else in the world except for the us. Where here you know. Vaccinations are up. Things are beginning to go back to normal or pre pandemic as much as they can. Do we expect this. Issue of vaccine inequality and distribution potentially to come up at the g seven for months. Now you've had a group of pretty influential international Humanitarian organisations nationalizations in the un system. Rallying around the idea that the world's wealthy nations basically need to bankroll the vaccination of the rest of the world and those discussions may emerge the g. seven the. Us has already committed around four billion dollars to the who's kovacs facility. Which is aimed at delivering vaccines to pour le middle income countries around the world. And it's planning on sending out around eighty million doses of the vaccine to other countries in the grips of the pandemic by the end of june. When we will have taken delivery of enough of such vaccines to protect everyone in the united states the united states will share at least twenty million of those doses that extra supply with other countries. This means over the next six weeks. The united states of america will send eighty million doses overseas that represents thirteen percent of the vaccine produced by the united states by the end of june. This is pretty significant. Contributions but global activists including a number of former will leaders.

"Welcome back into tomorrow. I'm dave grave line. Our twenty six year on the air bringing you the latest in consumer tech and all sorts of information. We thank you for tuning in the fight to end. Covid nineteen is far from over. Vaccination rates are slowing and misinformation unfortunately is still rampant leaving millions without the necessary facts to decide whether vaccination is right for them. We're joined by the medical director of infection prevention from atrium health. Dr katie pacioretty. dr pacioretty. Thank you for joining us into tomorrow. How are you today. i'm great. Thank you for having me terrific. Why in your opinion is it so important to get the vaccine because we keep hearing so much disinformation and misinformation that. I've certainly want to get your take on this and and then take it from there. Yeah absolutely so you know. Vaccination is absolutely hugely important part to getting our communities back to normal the covid vaccine protects the individual vaccinated protects. The people around that individual from fred going on in our communities. And you know really is how we get back to. You know normal to traveling without maths and being around other people in large group gatherings and doing it safely so absolutely hugely important to the safety and health of our that's good and and full disclosure not only was i hospitalized with the rona for a month but Back in august. But i have also had the vaccine and boy what a good feeling it is to be able to go to the grocery store now without my mask and to be able to just be out in public i get the weird look still because i'm assuming there's either that many people that still haven't been vaccinated or they just still feel more comfortable wearing the masks so i'm curious about your take on that aspect as well. Yeah so great that you you know. Many people think. Just because. I had kobe before. I don't need to get vaccinated and you know what we what we know. Is that not all cove. Infections are the same and some people have protection after cove infection. That goes away pretty quickly so that vaccine is really important regardless of whether you had been previously so thank you for doing that and sharing. That story You know. I do think we are in a weird place right now right. Cdc just recommended for fully vaccinated individuals. They don't need to wear masks out in public or really for anything anymore. But but it's been a long ear and you know there's still a lot of caution out there so i do think there are some vaccinated individuals that may choose still wear masks and feel like they're protecting themselves and certainly those that are unvaccinated. The recommendation is still out there to wear masks. Keep defense because you know where we are continuing to see is individuals that have chosen get vaccinated and dr. I'm encouraged to hear you. Also say that. Even though i had the covid getting the vaccination was still a good idea because i checked with all the various doctors that i have had to deal with in the last few months and they all agreed. Get the vaccination anyway. And i thought well is it like doubling the antibodies or something or just you know making it that much safer for me and those around me or for whatever reason if it was the right thing to do. I figured let's get it done and by all means do it. I even carry the little pin. That i got from memorial hospital down here in miami. That says i've been vaccinated. I don't wear it. But i have it in my pocket in case somebody approaches me. Just hold it up it. It's it's so bizarre. But i figure you know until we see more and more people mask list. It's still going to be a very strange feeling. I guess and you know there's different Approach is different areas. Have taken on. Wind wear masks. Some businesses may still require healthcare and healthcare. We still very much have a very susceptible patient population and math wearing it. Still standard for everyone coming in healthcare doors. So you know it is a little bit of a patchwork of where it's recommended to wear math where it stays to and not to so. It's a confusing time absolutely. But you know. I think at least we are heading in the right direction and every person vaccinated is one step further to to you know all of us being able to interact safely good and we keep hearing reports that cova. Vaccines didn't have time to be tested as much as they should be. Is that true or can we be confident. In the fact that while they sped things through They were done properly and we can take full confidence in vaccines. Yeah that's simply is not true. That they were sped through that they weren't done safely. You know the trials involve tens of thousands of individuals and wasn't just review by the drug companies and the government but an expert independent panel of infectious disease experts. Vaccine act for you know. Experts from across the world review that data and it met the safety and efficacy standards to put out her broad us and more than that you know given now two hundred eighty million doses of the covid vaccine in the united states and are still seeing that same level of protection from getting covert and safety with the vaccine so you know incredibly reassuring and Hopefully to to everyone good. And i'm hearing i'm hearing my audience in my head saying okay but which one because we hear about side effects that we hear about this one's better than that one or has it been established by this point dr that they're pretty much all the same. They're going to do the job. Whether it's the one jab or the two of whether it's pfizer or maderno or johnson and johnson would you stand on that all the vaccines that are available in. The united states earn credibly effective at preventing severe illness and hospitalization and death from kobe. Which is absolutely what we need to get to. There are You know. Specifically for the johnson and johnson vaccine that was put on pause a a month or so ago. You know it is for women. Eighteen to fifty. There was that rare. Very rare having blood clots with low platelets so that needs to be educated too and that may be the age group that chooses to get another vaccine but as far as effectiveness protection. You know really all the vaccines are great. Option okay good and it's been established. Of course i'm vaccinated but i still have a bunch of friends who are quite skeptical. Some that are saying nope not gonna do it. No matter what they can't make me. Should i be saying anything. Or what can i say to to help. Encourage them to open their horizons. Maybe look at the facts Get vaccinated we've got gotta get to that so called herd immunity. I'm guessing so the only way to do that. It seems is get as many people vaccinated as possible. But they're still going to be some holdouts. I guess no matter what we do. We know that some you know from studies. We know that there are tons of people that are kind of on the fence and there are some people that are adamantly opposed. So i think absolutely would encourage people to have those discussions try to educate your friends family members on you know your personal experience that you did find with the vaccine. You feel good you feel safe. You feel protected because that goes a long way and certainly there are some common myths that we hear time and time again Are worth kind of putting that immediately. So you know koga the vaccine will give me cove into. Why would i take it absolutely impossible from a scientific perspective. I would reassure them that that is absolutely not true. The vaccine will modify my dna again not true The vaccine makes me infertile And you know that one. Now with hundreds of millions of doses. We've just seen no impact of the vaccine on fertility. Those are three of the most common and three of the easiest to confidently. Say just not true. And then for those wait. And here's what are you waiting for. In seeing at this point you know hundreds of millions of doses gay then more and more data out in the real world more and more data that protection last for a long time from the vaccine. So you know not. In a confrontational way encouraging. Those conversations is.

"From the side effects so a few days ago by announce that four of the major childcare providers in the us are to provide free care to help parents and caregivers get vaccinated and of course private businesses are answering what they're doing to. Cbs is doing a sweepstakes where people could win. Super bowl tickets. United airlines apparently has something similar that earns vaccine people the chance for a year free flights. Yeah so if you want to go i guess. State to state since the world is not exactly open. Great wonderful value explore every route imaginable. Good for you. Kroger is going to give one million dollars. So you've in person this month and anheuser busch is promising free beer on july fourth. It's the country. Hits the seventy percent goal terms and conditions apply for all of these things etcetera etcetera. But you know that but yeah the white house and others are really trying to go all in this month. Because the daily average of doses given out has dropped by like sixty seven percent since the peak in mid april and where there isn't vaccine coverage there of course is a chance for more spread. Yeah and then. We got news of what america's plan is to help get the rest of the world vaccinated. And how will finally be sharing doses with other countries. So what's the word. Yes so we got our first glimpse of this Yesterday by the end of this month. America's planning on sharing eighty million doses. The white house broke down. Where the first batch about twenty five million shots are going to be shared about. Nineteen million doses are going to go to kovacs. Which is this international program by the world health organization to get vaccines to poorer nations. Those doses will be dedicated specifically for south and southeast asia. Latin america and the caribbean and africa than the rest of what we're sharing it. I will head to places experiencing surges or where the need is more immediate that includes india iraq. The west bank in gaza and more and the clock is ticking here. The who recently raised the alarm about rising test positi in fourteen african countries with concern about it conceivable wave that could spread across the continent and the us embassy in afghanistan. Recently recommended that us citizens actually leave due to worsening conditions. They're much much more. We will get into soon but onto something. That couldn't be any more different. This week has been another crazy ride on the stock train. Can you help break down. What has been going on. Yes india gideon so for those who are unaware of the concept of stunks They are simply the mean. Stocks digital currency tidal wave sweeping the nation and in regards to the ladder the entire world. So we reported on. Amc game stop and nokia earlier in the year. When shortsellers collective saw this big opportunity to make quick cash but since then a lot has happened. The app robin hood froze people's assets. Read it made some communication channels disappeared. Those coins moon word. Trajectory was derailed after elon musk hosted. Snl and bitcoins value dropped by twenty thousand dollars plus the latest news though surrounding these volatile stocks and currencies is that amc made good on that huge influx of cash which is allegedly a billion dollars worth between december and january and earlier. This week rallied to its highest share price yet but then yesterday it closed down twenty percent but also hey still up in general okay some major swings up and down here. So what actually accounts for these latest gains. Just more memes. We are talking about real money gideon so at the beginning of the week. Amc made gains by selling stock to a hedge fund then by selling more shares on the markets. Yesterday the company said that it raised over five hundred eighty seven million dollars in additional equity capital. But it's not exactly like amc's ashamed of the clout in fact they're leaning into it. They've started a new platform for investors to get free popcorn or advance screenings of films which might not seem like much. But if you've left your house lately it seems like everything is way too expensive also smart way to get people to still buy tickets and support your company the old fashioned way by sitting in a theater getting the feet sticky and watching pretty people kiss despite all the high highs and lows the takeaway. Is that this wall street. Strategy has allowed. Amc theater chain on the brink of being closed forever to bounce back. Justice things are reopening nationwide. Yes oh is it safe to invest in these stocks. Are we all too late to benefit this point asking for not anyone in particular well. This is not financial advice but amc themselves put out a statement yesterday. Basically warning prospective investors of the volatile nature of the stock which also almost certainly contributed to the dip at the end of the day yesterday in the statement they said quote our current market prices reflect market and trading dynamics unrelated to our underlying business or macro industry fundamentals. And we do not know how long these dynamics will last each israel and wall street analysts are also not convinced that this kind of thing has staying power but for younger generations with no accrued wealth because of stagnant wages investing one hundred dollars. Here there seems worth the risk at least in the short term those young brave cap invest here and there and the fun uncharted wild west of memes stocks. The odds be ever in your favor. We'll keep you posted on how this all shakes out as theater star going wide with releases again soon and. That's the latest for now.
"eighty million doses" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"Linski i pressed her on the lack of concrete actions. The us was taking a vaccinate. The world tonight a very hopeful update on that front. Don't go anywhere it's next. Seven day average of us. Cova deaths is now at the lowest level since march twenty nine th of last year. Six hundred thousand americans have died since the pandemic began and the virus continues to produce misery. In-depth day after day around the world. Here's an example last month. Thirty one percent of cova desks worldwide came from latin america and the caribbean even though it only has eight point. Four percent of the world's population india alone lost almost a hundred and twenty thousand people to the virus. Justin may that is the deadliest month deadliest month. Any nation is seen since the start of the pandemic and all that happened while we have incredibly safe and effective vaccines. We have both the ability and the responsibility do everything we can to vaccinate the world. As of three weeks ago the total number of vaccines shipped abroad from the us was abysmally. Low compared to other countries. Only about three million doses. She that export the yellow sea. How you can't see the bar there. Yeah that's us then just over two weeks ago. The biden administration announced. It was going to donate eighty million vaccine doses. To other countries to fight the virus great you would think the number of doses sent out would have increased quite a bit since that announcement from three million right after the announcement but as of today the numbers just over four million. and that's not just backseats donated his total vaccines that have been allowed to leave this country even in commercial transactions. It's nothing essentially so last night. I pressed the director rachelle. We'll inskeep on what on earth the hold up was. Why are we dragging our feet. While people die we have commitment and a plan to share eighty million doses of covid vaccine by the end of june. And we're working through the logistics of of that plan. I've been hearing eighty million doses. I've been hearing working through logistical issues. Weeks and weeks have gone by. And we haven't ship doses. Yeah i wanna be very clear to say that we have been first of all here in the united states to this day we have suffered the most deaths of anywhere in the world we needed to put on our own oxygen masks before we were able to help others and now we are actively doing that so today some very good news and announcement actual doses shipping out out the door. Twenty five million doses. We'll be shipped. The united states the biden administration about nineteen million of those are going to kovacs. Which is this kind of global cooperative. That's focused on collecting and distributing vaccines developing nations again. Very welcome news but just the first step right. The eighty million doses. The biden administration says will be shipped out by the end of this month. Should be the floor not the ceiling. We had the rarest of opportunities to build kind of community around the world that can save lives. It can improve relationships with other nations help. Get the global economy back humming again. There is no excuse not to do it and the clock is ticking. The us in the meantime is going ahead with its plan to put armed guards on certain airline flights in the senate committee heard some testimony about this today. People that we're going to put aboard. The airplanes are mature rational well-qualified at are not about to start anything or make any overt. Act that would add risk to the situation. There was a time in this country. History known as the golden age of hijacking. Two thousand nine hundred sixty one. When the first flight was hijacked and nineteen seventy-two nearly one hundred and sixty commercial flights commandeered toward the end of that run. Those hijackings were happening as often as once a week is no longer just planes in. Us airspace. hijackings were taking control of american air. Carriers anywhere in. The world became a viral contagion of full blown epidemic. We were about.

"Virus infections rise. The economists recently crunch the numbers and estimated the global cova death toll is likely between seven and twelve million people which would be two to three times the official count and with so many countries. Battling huge cova spikes and not even able to properly count their dead. There's no time to wait to get vaccines out there. Vaccines or being distributed to kind of small minority of people around the world. The rollout has been very successful in europe and america britain and a few other countries but the rest of the world is very much waiting and certainly the low income countries in africa. Really haven't received any vaccine tool at the small hospital in chad's capital jemmy. There are no debates over how to best rollout back to everyone. There are simply no vaccines at all. As the richest nations by up the lion share of doses how and when will developing countries on their populations only six of africa's fifty four countries have begun to vaccinate their populations. So how did we get here. And how do we get out of here. Loader told us some of the reasons were here are pretty obvious the first is that wealthy countries hoarded more doses of the vaccine than they needed. Which means the first thing we can do is we can start donating vaccine. That's simple enough and to its credit the. Us has already doing a lot of this. It's donated or leads to donate eighty million doses so far but it's still sitting on a large stockpile of unused vaccines and on top of that. Its prioritizing vaccinations for low risk out lessons while many other countries don't even have iot for high risk groups loader says the us called dibs on a lot of things used to manufacture vaccines making it more difficult for other countries to produce their own doses. One of the things that america did to support its own vaccine. Making industry was used the defense production act and that kind of essentially gives it first dibs on pretty much anything it needs in its own supply chains now unfortunately global supply chains really really connected in fact your vaccine relies on imports from nineteen countries and if every country in the world behaved like that vaccine production would come to halt and so this fence. Production has really kind of gummed up supply chains in one of the bits of reporting. I've been doing has been sort of shying. How production lines outside america have been essentially grinding to a halt. Because they're missing a filter a bit of tubing or whatever it is and they usually get that from america but they just can't get it out loader says now that americans are vaccinated the. Us should start letting other countries essential production elements again the lives that could be saved as a result of acting fast. Our already strong enough motivation to do that. But there's also an economic case to be made for helping countries struggling with kovin cording to the economist well. Two doses of vaccine costs an average of four dollars to make their valued to recipients is closer to three thousand dollars. And if you add that to healthcare education productivity savings when people don't get sick. That value is estimated to be way higher so distributing cheap vaccines could prevent much higher bills for other countries later with so many clear benefits to acting fast. Loader says it's time to get to work what we really need is for these rich countries. The g. seven countries to kind of come together a make a big statement about donating a lot of axiom because at the end of the year. They'll be plenty ache so they really need to get vaccine out now. Natasha loaders covert podcast for the economist. The jab is available everywhere. This week marks one hundred years since the tulsa race massacre one of the worst episodes of racial violence in us history back. In nineteen twenty one and area of tulsa oklahoma was a thriving neighborhood for thousands of black americans that became maine's block wall street have very prosperous americans who owned hotels and movie theaters and restaurants and doctors lawyers and all sorts of businesses. That's dr shinichi journal. She's an associate professor of social studies. Education at oklahoma state. University is really important that we understand the prosperity this community and how it was this jewel for the community but of course tulsa whites were not feeling the same way. They are very envious or jealous. How can those people have those things. So you can get this clash between these two groups and this all came to a head in nineteen twenty one on. Monday may thirtieth. It was memorial day on that day of violent white mob terrorized. The area after a black man was falsely accused of rape. Thirty square blocks. Ten thousand homes. Businesses were destroyed blacks. Left homeless families left homeless. The massacre goes on all night long in pretty much the next day in total as many as three hundred black residents were killed and hundreds more were injured and this was far from an isolated incident throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries black americans were targeted and killed in mass in northern cities like new york chicago and detroit as well as in southern states like louisiana and georgia other massacres of black americans should have just had a national spotlight shone on them at their one hundred year commemorations but they didn't like the nineteen nineteen massacre in elaine arkansas. In which more than two hundred predominantly black cotton farmers were killed or the massacre of a handful of black citizens hoping to vote in the nineteen twenty election in okoye florida all of which begs the question. Why are a lot of us looking or in the case of lehner okoye not learning about this history now at least tulsa doctrinal told us. That's because a lot of people didn't wanna talk about it. After the fact and tulsa we talk about there being a community and a culture of silence over this event that culture of silence was upheld by lawmakers and local officials for decades. It really was. I think the late eighties early nineties. When oklahoma government kinda did a race riot with that thomas race riot commission to study. What happens like we really need to find some answers. Not i commission report. I think it was released in nineteen ninety-one and so we really are talking seventy years. After the event where the west concerted effort to gather some of these stories now what happened in tulsa one hundred years ago is only starting to be talked about in the media but doctrinal told us. This conversation also has to happen in the classroom. I think it does come down to education in some ways when i talk to teachers about whether or not teaching it. They just feel like they don't know enough. How good enough. A social studies teacher in broken arrow. Oklahoma agrees. I think that it has not been taught because too many people are afraid of having difficult conversations and where that conversation might lead. What's topics may come from that. And they're just honestly they're just afraid and so. I think that the fear has driven this topic specifically but other difficult history as well to just be kind of brushed aside in not discussed because people don't like to be uncomfortable. Learning about race related prejudice and schools is still an uphill battle not just in oklahoma but in a lot of communities you may have heard about the debate over teaching critical race theory in.

"Ensure the other parts of the world are able to vaccinate that that populations quickly and i wondered also at the olympic gains. Tokyo's should safely go ahead this year. Yeah well. I'm not gonna comment on the olympic. Gonna leave that to the japanese because every time i comment on somebody else's business if doesn't doesn't work out well so the japanese are very competent to make that decision so we certainly doing a lot. In a week we promise now will be giving eighty million doses sixty million of astrazeneca and twenty million of a combination of moderna pfizer. Jj we've joined kovacs. We the given or pledged four billion dollars to kobe and there is plans right now to at least discuss the possibility of partnering with pharmaceutical companies. To get even more doses. Because we've got to do more. The entire developed world really in my mind has almost a moral obligation to make sure that because countries don't have the resources to vaccinate people that somehow we help them but help them soon not two years from now but soon because the more you wait the more people are gonna die. Intensive that the writing speed vaccinations. Obviously united states is very well in the united kingdom the places. It seems that the the rate is much slower. Hasn't been any information sharing tens of how health networks in the united states for example were able to put shots into people's arms so quickly and speedily in such an organized way on whether that would be helpful to other countries struggling it was a very intensive As president biden became president. He instituted a very proactive. Vo would leaning a program of reaching out with community vaccine centers federally qualified clinics forty thousand pharmacies that were in areas particularly those that were demographically represented by minority groups. Getting mobile units out there. It was really a very concerted strong effort. It wasn't something that we just said. Well let let it happen. It was we're going to get out there up front and really pushed the envelope and for that reason why it has been so successful. That was dr anthony. Fauci in conversation with monaco's thomas lewis and this is the globalist. Let's continue now with today's newspapers and joining me on. The line is lottie. Burke who's a journalist with the sydney morning herald and the age. The we've just heard dr anthony fauci talking or rather refusing to talk about whether the olympics should go ahead Japan and the still plan for the event to happen but as is reported in the press today uptick in the times. They are going to be strict regulations in place including no high. Fives telus me morning. Yes look if the olympics do go ahead. And i do think that is still a big. If given that japan Several pops of japan still in an estate of lockdown and there have been some local pressures on on hostile some hospital areas so if the do go ahead it will be without international taste that we knew but it now emerges that the japanese spectators who might be allowed in to see these events Well it's going to be a rather joyless event because to get in they'll have to obviously proves that they are not positive they'll have to have a taste all provide proof of flu vaccination once inside. They must wear their masks and they will not be allowed to eat drink ochiai as the times badges that this is a hot five bands to japan's she'll olympics and this is taken stripe that the times is quoting a report in the local press in japan and one really does begin to wonder. What is the point because the whole idea of allowing spectators was sticky use athletes that sense of of the cheering. That sense of being urged on and spit on. Now it's going to stick to to just japanese spectators keeping mind. Georgina opinion. Polls show that local sentiment against these olympics or against hosting these olympics very very high in japan but even if they're allowed in it will be a kind of silence olympics some. I'm not sure that's really the event everyone. No i mean. One of the main arguments for it. Going ahead is economic but with spectators banned from the eating and drinking going to restaurants africa. Straight back to the hotels will their homes. I mean all of that. Level of economic activity also stripped out absolutely. And that's one of the other points made made at the bottom of this article. Which is that once. They've been allowed and not allowed to eat drink as they watch. The world's best athletes competed out. They'll be shifted straight harm to their hotels presumably talked in their rooms now at nottingham to buy and have a great time as as.

"Where i'm going or if the unvaccinated people that are there will be masked again this goes for children or any immunosuppressed patients who can't get the vaccine and then the third thing will be when the covert rate is so low that even an unvaccinated unmask person is very unlikely to have active covert. And that i think will happen when we have enough fully vaccinated in our communities and when the case rates have come down enough what switch from what's happening in our own homes in neighborhoods to the world. We've seen that certain nations Most prominently india are having huge surges. Right now the us has decided to provisionally to share some vaccines. What's the relationship of the us to the world right now. That as it's been evolving in terms of you know Having a vaccine policy. That's not just us but that's also global he. I mean what's so important to remember. Is that the pandemic. it's not over until the pandemic is over everywhere so we must prevent the development of these variants that inevitably will outwit. Are vaccines right. So as cases are coming down to the united states in some places now we are seeing cases. Go up places like kenya india. And you know we really have to think about how we can help the global population benefit from vaccination so there was an announcement this week from biden acknowledging that they are now going to be sending over eighty million doses globally. And i think that's that's what we have to do. We have to get the global population vaccinated. India alone is a country of over one billion people so eighty million doses is still not enough for us to make a huge dent in this. I also find it. Really hard for those of us of indian descent to watch. What's going on in india with a collapsing healthcare system and not only not getting vaccines into arms there but not even having oxygen and at the same time. Having here the us having indoor mask mandates lifted even in places that don't have high of vaccination rates..
