Nineteen monaco's health and science correspondent. Dr chris smith had more for us on the story on today's edition of the briefing. What a lot of countries india south africa arguing is that expensive patents owned by the owners of the intellectual property behind these vaccines prevent on the ground local manufacturer vaccines and that could impede vaccine. Supply the flip side of this on the other hand of from the fomc sector but also independent impartial. Commentators is that really. The bottleneck isn't payton's it's just vaccine supply it's the ability to make vaccines because it's just a recipe book. It is the know how and the magic hands approach. That goes with making these things. That's really important too. So it's not everything. It's a step in the right direction in terms of mass production vaccines. But it's not the whole story. Dr chris smith speaking to us on the briefing a little earlier today Henry how significant would you say. Is the statement by president biden yesterday. And how is it. Being received in the united states. The potential impact of the policy he proposed is enormously significant and with open up production of toronto virus vaccines beyond the really handful of companies that have developed them and currently manufacture them and opened up to any other any number of other companies around the world to doing so in the us received differently. Depending on who you ask. Democrats who have been advocating for this and health public health advocates who've been advocating for this move for a long time bernie sanders and elizabeth warren or among them. They obviously welcomed the decision. They think that it's important. For the united states to projector projected moral leadership on the global stage by by not withholding the ability to to produce these vaccines which is now how how advocates of the of the policy view the us sanctions so far on the other hand is christmas mentioned.

India's leading opposition leader rahul. Gandhi has called for an immediate national lockdown as the crisis brought about by second wave of corona virus infections continues to deepen official figures from india claim that more than two hundred and twenty thousand people have now died and twenty million infections have been recorded but there is a widely held belief that both of those figures are significantly lower than the actual toll covid nineteen has taken in india. So far monaco's health and science correspondent. Chris smith explained some of the reasons the current situation in india for us on the briefing. Today it's made difficult in india for a of different reasons. Not just numerical ones. Population is the big problem. One point three plus billion people in the country but fifty percent of them have no toilet and if you use access to a toilet as a proxy for living standards. This is very much a work to live. Society of very divided society of very impoverished society for many of those one point three billion people. So when you have public health maneuvers like being used in britain to control the problem. Stay at home. Quarantine yourself you can't do that in places like this and when you've got people living in the sorts of population densities the some people being forced to live in then as soon as you get one case we know the vast majority of cases of crony of ours transmission occur in the domestic setting. Because where you spend most of your time where do you spend your closest personal contact time with others where you spend time eating sleeping and so on. It's in the high so unsurprising if you've got lots of people and very high density in relatively poor living conditions you can get lots of cases and people can't afford to then is late themselves to stop themselves giving it to other people because then another problem kicks in. They go bankrupt. They can't afford to eat. And then of course their children suffer. No one's gonna let that happen. So as a result it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy dr chris. smith monaco's health and science correspondent speaking to us on today's edition off the briefing. A henry spoken several times in the program about the international aid. This being pledged to india. Do we have a sense at this stage of active international aid. That has been arriving so far has been in the current situation in india. The international aid has helped significantly but there there have been impediments to its effectiveness. The biggest impediment isn't actually the necessarily a shortage of any given resource but the infrastructural resources as are required to disperse them. Distribute them over the country. Indie obviously is a vast vast country with an enormous population most of its oxygen manufacturing facilities. Were in the south of the country and that creates a shortage or has led to a shortage in the north of of the country and it is very difficult to get the oxygen there quickly enough. The air force has been enlisted to carry cannisters up to the north but there are vast swathes of the country which which are not served particularly well by road networks for example and this is a major impediment to getting the aid which is coming into the country to to where it's needed. Interestingly to fill some of these gaps in terms of coordination of the distribution of aid organic networks of a have have have popped up on social media both.

Have another chance to hear it yet. hi tom. Es this week. While we're we're going to speak about mr biden in a few minutes from now but actually this week. We're looking at the new dawn for transportation in the united states. People will know that. Joe biden is nicknamed amtrak joe and now having pete buttigieg mayor pete at the helm of the transport as transport secretary has opened up all these questions about the future of transit in the united states. And so we profile beds The state of the rail infrastructure in the country have few of damore Groundbreaking initiatives to try to shift the conversation away from automobiles particularly on the west coast as we know very car. Centric part of the us And yes a little wondering and musing on what This pairing of amtrak ago and mayor. Pete can bring to the country and henry imagining that you're fond of her the trainer new or to you dreaming of the day you can hop back onto an amtrak train sometime in the afc jet. I'm fantasizing ninety about getting back in the in the bank seats of the long island. Railroad look keeping us guessing on what adventure will look like. Sheridan aunt called rabelo. Great to have you both with us on the program tonight where we begin. Today's show in the united states. Where president joe biden has given his first press conference since taking the oath of office in late january. Some had asked why it's taken president biden so long to hold a former press conference. It's been sixty five days. Since he assumed the presidency and every one of his predecessors since calvin coolidge who was president of the nineteen twenties at all held a former encounter with the press by a comparible point in their presidencies collado before we get into the importance of the presidential press conference at today's encounter with the press for joe biden comes at a particular time of pressure for him early on in his presidency. Doesn't it oh absolutely We're likely to see. Joe biden being pressed particularly on the issue of gun control in the us. Anita remember that to Mass shootings happened within a week. Very recently a also the figures for an employment have been released so that's likely to be another a focus of the press conference at least when it comes to the questions being directed at him as mentioned is sixty five days since Well sixty five days. A no formal press conference has been held a lot of speculation on why that might be the case You know the idea that we were so overwhelmed during the trump years That perhaps is on a bad thing now not to be around the clock looking at what the next press conference might be saying now. biden's white house is of course a under a lot of pressure because of all of these issues. Immigration is another one as well. But also i think The you know this is the first time that he will be addressing. The nation since The cove nineteen relief. Bill has been passed. And there's a lot of questions There as well On what that means in reality for citizens so these are all a lot of really serious consequential issues Almost a perfect storm in a weird way. I don't think this press conference could have come at a better time in terms of people needing answers and in terms of helping biden using use this platform to Pro pro to properly spread the message that he's trying to say from his white house and from his administration and henry there had been a growing chorus of and questions asking why biden hasn't held a press conference before now in your opinion. Do you think those questions have sort of. Put a bit of a focus on the value of the president. Taking questions directly from the prestige questions were not fair. I do think that they were fair to an extent. And i do also think that they shine a light on or thrown into relief. Exactly the point of official white house press briefings. Are there a somewhat unusual type of interaction between the highest elected official in america and the press the somewhat theatrical everyone i'm sure listening is familiar with format. The the president standing at the front of the white house briefing room behind the lectern picking reporters who form the right of the white house press corps which is a kind of prestigious group of journalists that have their own culture faced criticism in the past for being a forum for grandstanding. On both sides of the lectern both the president a well presidents in the past and the journalists are called upon sometimes can use can use is an opportunity to kind of Flexor theatrical but. I think that it's a legitimate mechanism. For holding the president to account and i also think that it does provide a degree of visibility for people to be able to see the president reaches a broader audience than interviews with for example specific press outlets which is what biden has restricted himself to so far in his presidency. So i think that although they can be made fun of of the utility can be questioned somewhat. I do think it's important for presidents to engage with them particularly president like biden. Who is looking to reestablish what is considered a normal relationship with the press after donald trump's presidency while we will have further analysis for you from today's press conference at the white house on tomorrow morning's edition of the globalist hero monocle twenty four that begins live from london at seven. Am london time well next here. On the late edition the effort to unblock. The suez canal has entered a new phase as dutch and japanese. Salvage teams have been brought in to try to free the two hundred twenty thousand ton ever given from the bank of one of the world's most important shipping routes. The vessel ran aground after reportedly being blown off by strong winds. On tuesday henry. The owner of the ever given has apologized for the delays. This instant is now causing but there are several reports circulating today about what might have to happen too to free up through. We've heard from one salvage company at the moment that it like. He isn't going to impossible to free it while the cocker is on board Unloading kaga is likely take several days. It's quite an unpredictable picture. Still isn't it. Yes so. I think the last time that a vessel stuck in the suez canal was also a japanese vessel. I think back in twenty seventeen in that instance tug boats were able to refloat it within a few hours. This is a completely different situation. The ceo of one of the salvage companies parent company has compared the ship to an enormous beached whale and has set the as you mentioned could take weeks to refloat and that could involve a complex process of systematically removing the cargo from the ship to make it light enough to reef refloat difficult to emphasize the extent of the disruption that causes to global trade a massive proportion of the world's trade with the cargo cargo anyway shipborne cargo canal and i think aside from the aside from the potential disruption to global trades. This could also say A kind of wild crisis within the shopping insurance industry all of the companies that have lost time and money because their ships have been delayed by this stuck ship are going to be filing their own insurance claims for damages. An well you can only imagine how messy that might get and carlotta th the time we're going to wear the reports are that there are some one hundred. Fifty ships backed up at the suez canal. This is only the third time. I believe that the as canal has effectively been closed in this way since it opened all the way back in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine so it is an extremely reliable thoroughfare historically even so do you think that the the grounding of the ever given has shown that there is still a precariousness to global trade given just how vast the volume of goods that passed through the suez canal. Every day is now that much traffic is ground to a halt..

The school gates is former pupil. Henry reese sheridan. Henry is great pleasure to be speaking to you. It's been awhile since we shed a microphone. We're oversee speaking to you from new yorker. I wonder if you could paint us a little. Sonic portrait of where you're at and what you're up to absolutely to my rights. Look out my window. I can see ten to eleven inches of snowfall. So that's creating an extremely festive atmosphere. I turn back zone facing indoors. Look down on my feet. My japanese sox. I've not had to crack them out yet this year but the radiators broken in combination with the inclement weather i've had to. I've had to take them out of the draw other any more details that you'll know about. I just would say that any socks that need cracking a not socks i'd be wearing. There'll be plenty of time for these kinds of christmas. Japes first up. We're going to be talking about press freedom now. The twenty tens is operatives. Inelegantly called them in what he pulls a script was about decade for journalists and twenty twenty hasn't been much better a pair of reports published. This week highlighted the serious constraints journalists under around the world. Early up monaco's georgina. Godwin spoke to rebecca vincent the uk bureau director of reporters without borders who explained how free speech in print online and muttered into microphones. Who's western problem too. And it's not just trump but there's many other kind of figures that have possibly been emboldened by the leader of the country of the first amendment speaking and treating journalists way for sure that attitude has really grown over the past several years I think it does have some responsibility for the acceleration and press freedom violations including detentions and attacks on journalists around the world. I actually went to to mentioned another report. Which is the. Us press freedom tracker this is a collaborative project. Cuts are asaf is also part of in the united states now. These are not figures that we've included in our roundup but during this year the press freedom chalker detected an unprecedented one hundred seventeen arrests detainment of journalists in the us. So they're not in our report because they're not still imprisoned. These are often arrests or detentions but one hundred and seventeen journalists in the united states detained largely in connection with covering The black lives matter protests. That have taken place this year. Which is really alarming. Rebecca vincent bureau director of reporters without borders henry For all of your shortcomings you are in new york. And therefore capable of giving us a. Us perspective on things has the past four years of donald trump's anti-media moaning to change the way that people think about journalists or treat journalists in the us while covering politics. Do i think probably for most people in the united states it's actually enhanced the presses reputation and that's certainly true among people who are willing to pay for kind of premium media. I mean we've seen spikes in subscriptions to lexi titles like the new york times at the same time that outlets which perhaps not behind a paywall haven't marketed themselves. A savelly have had to rely more on kind of variety and online marketing techniques to to stay afloat a certainly the fact that the trump administration has been quite explicitly on the war footing with what they call the mainstream media since before trump took office has has fundamentally changed the dynamics between a particularly white house press correspondent and people covering the white house and and the trump administration and the administration itself of asli. We expect our media to Take a sceptical stance towards whoever's in the white house even the best of times. But from from sean spicer at kayleigh mcenany all of trump's communications leaders have kind of provoked the press of cast them as enemies of the people and it really got buy personal at times Just recently mcenany refuse to take a question from a cnn. Reporter extremely mainstream kind of representative of the press saying that she doesn't call activists deeply entrenched sense that most legacy media publications represent an anti trump view represents a set of values which cultivated among the coastal elites and not representative of the country at large. That's the narrative that trump is being at pains to spin. I think it should be said that. To an extent the press have played up to that characterization. There's been quite a pronounced shift within newsrooms over the course of the trump presidency where relatively younger journalists journalists who came up on social media where there is less of a firewall between activism and journalism have been advocating for a more combative stance from within these historically neutral newsrooms towards the administration. And it's uncertain as to whether or not that's going to go away just because joe biden's office and at the same time and i know this is a topic. Which is we've discussed often the monocle. Twenty four the. The journalism industry has undergone or rather has faced lots and lots of different challenges which has led to to restructuring across the industry lots of star journalists have turned to independent independent outlets publishing newsletters on substitute for example. Leaving like cpr. Two take that route so even if when biden comes into office he tries to reestablish what was considered to be normal relations with the press. I think that he will find the ground to shift pitch shifted. Excuse me beneath him. Over the course of the last four years the media isn't what it was for years ago and i would be loath to make any predictions about how that's going to affect a white house press relations for the next four years and page at the plight of journalists in egypt in russia or in other countries that are less willing to have their leaders. Questioned is one thing. But i'd kind of like to stay in the west and think about maybe you k. Us a little bit in an age of uncertainty where the pinions of ritually dubbed fake news..
