"The drive to vaccinate the world against corona virus looks very different depending on which country in the united states is now given at least one shot to most of the adult population. Some rich countries are beginning booster shots that would be third shot for some people. Many poor countries have barely started. Vaccinations at all. And the discrepancy explains why the world health organization opposes booster shots for now. Npr global health correspondent jason bobi and joins us. Now a jason. Y is the. Who saying this now. I think the who is actually getting quite frustrated with the global inequity in access to vaccines. You got more than eighty percent of the doses that have been administered so far in this pandemic have been in high income and upper middle income countries while poor countries. Continue to struggle just to get their hands on access to vaccines and this is despite the. Who highlighting this problem for months. Now if you look at it you've now got roughly half the entire. Us population fully vaccinated. Yet if you look in the philippines it's less than seven percent in guatemala. It's two percent in nigeria. it's just one percent. The head of who tasers at non montgomery says basically says wealthy nations have been hogging most of the available vaccines and he says they shouldn't now start handing out booster shots. While these low income countries can't even get their most vulnerable people vaccinated. We need urgent reversal from the majority of vaccines going to high income countries to the majority going to low income countries in. This isn't just a global solidarity argument. It's also that from a public health perspective. You have to drive down the levels of virus everywhere if the world has ever finally going to get this pandemic under control what you just said. They're getting the pandemic under control. How's that gone you know. Unfortunately the global trends are not good worldwide. The number of reported cases just past two hundred million. Everyone agrees that that's an undercount of the true number but even more significantly the number of cases continue to go up for the last six weeks. Numbers globally have been steadily climbing. Some places around the world are worse than others. Cuba for instance is seeing a big spike right now from having almost no cases at the beginning of the year they're now reporting eight sometimes nine thousand new cases per day.

With Their Land in Flames, Aboriginals Warn Fires Show Deep Problems in Australia
"As Australia has been ravaged by one of its worst bushfire seasons in history. There is a lot of debate about controlled. Burns and the role. That fire can play in managing managing fire aboriginal. Australians used fire to manage brush lands and forests long before Britain started sending convicts to the continent in the seventeen hundreds. NPR's Jason Bobi and caught up with an aboriginal teacher who just lost his home and camp to the raging infernos knoll Butler and his wife. Trish used to run the neuro.

That was a two story. I frame house which I built. The inferno. Torched the camp their house and the surrounding woods for miles. And what you can see now is nothing not a single thing left. It's Oh absolutely completely destroyed. The ground is covered in powdery ash. Every tree trunk is charred. Char- black some of them still smolder. There's not a single green leaf left anywhere so Butler is putting out. Hey for the KANGAROOS and chickenfeed for the wallabies wallabies. Look long-legged goats. Lead Anything Butler has also been burying Kangaroos and wallabies. That were killed in the blaze. But he's seen one large grey kangaroos. reuss still alive and the tracks of some wallabies a few birds have returned. Butler and his wife used this place to hold camps and workshops and aboriginal culture than a program for troubled indigenous youth. School groups would come to learn about native art. History and food fire was a key issue. They teach about far in. This place is zero friend. Fire has been used by tying to look after this whole continent forever. Native peoples used what they called cool burns as low intensity fires intended to balance the various plants and trees growing in an area how we maintain that balance is far by not letting any wanting dominate the eucalyptus shouldn't be allowed to overrun all the other trees. If one starts to take over a grassland it should get burned back. Aboriginal people have generations of knowledge about managing the landscape on this continent. Butler says nordby public officials who rely on massive back Burns this week. The New South Wales Rural Fire Service Commissioner defended the large scale controlled burns. Firefighters have been using. There's been a torrent of criticism over the blazes uses the clearly frustrated. Commissioner declared the burns or necessary to try to cut back the amount of fuel available for the next blaze but Butler says. There's clearly a problem problem. Fires have been burning since October. All across Australia and officials say they continue to burn for months. The place is heading for destruction. Nobody can deny Benoy. Never can say this is just. This is normal. It isn't Australia.

Earth mismanaging the land and continuing to burn fossil fuels. Oh I think this is a wakeup call. Not The only frustration but for the rest of the world you cannot just destroy the land you cannot destroy what keeps you alive. Butler's father told him a long time ago.

Australians Debate What To Do About Climate Change
"USTRALIAN still have time talking about climate change. Despite suffering record-breaking temperatures and unprecedented fire season global warming is generally accepted as fact in the country that just experienced its hottest and driest year on record in two thousand nineteen but Australia is also the the world's largest exporter of coal after hearing the parliamentary election. One of the biggest issues was what the media term. The Climate Wars Australian voters rejected the Labor Party which was lobbying for the country to move aggressively away from fossil fuels. NPR's Jason Bobi and reports from Sydney unlike debate on the issue in the US. For for a Lotta people refuse to accept establish science in Australia. The debate is more about the urgency of climate change. And how much should be done on it. How quickly with smoke? In the the air the record heat the ongoing drought millions and millions of acres of land on fire. There are daily reminders of the reality of the changing planet. But that doesn't mean people people agree on what should be done about it if you go back a couple of decades. There was largely bipartisan support in terms of climate action. That's Mark Houten. He's the director of the Climate Climate Change Institute at the Australian National University in Canberra but for a few different reasons With gone into a period of extreme polarization about climate change Enj- quite extraordinary degree of polarization about climate. Change three years ago. The Prime Minister Scott Morrison back when he was the treasurer famously brought a softball sized lump of coal into parliament in thrust it defiantly in the air is despicable. This is call fried treasurer nuys. The road along trump's ropes. It's called men and women who work and live in electric's of those offices Morrison said Coal Exports Ford what has made the Australian economy globally competitive. He accused legislators who are pushing for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions of stifling Australian jobs and he also suggested that his opponents suffer from a mental disorder is opposite. have an ideological illogical thea of good for qualified financially Mr Spike. But that's the malady that afflicts thighs opposite how the Australian National University says the polarization around on climate change has kept the country for moving forward. Not just to try to reduce emissions but to put in place additional coping measures like beefing up firefighting budgets. It's in bringing in more waterbombing airplanes. What's really extraordinary in Australia? is even though the politics are actually very toxic and problematic. Must Australians want action on climate change a poll last year from the Lao Institute the Think Tank in Sydney founded Australians listed climate change as the biggest threat facing the country in the coming decade cade and ninety percent of them said they wanted the government to take action on the issue. The town of Control of Park on the east coast south of Sydney was ravaged by wildfires. What's that flared? Over New Year's more than eighty houses were destroyed in two people died in the town. The community halls turned into a relief. Supply Station tables piled Donald with clothes. Toiletries food all of water. There's still no power generators running out front keep icing milk.

I got stuck in the five as well but I've been itching to come down to this community because they like family to me. Whites and independent considers herself right of center. She's frustrated by how difficult it is to get people across the political spectrum to compromise during debates about climate change on the city council. They don't want to accept somebody else's opinion. She says the city council had a huge fight over whether to convert all municipal buildings to run entirely off solar. So do I signed to a right Pyeho. I'm not collecting the rubbish through online. Going to click the Ravi lobby ship three weeks because I need to save money because I want to put a solid roof on the toilet. You've got a balancing act and how you do it. She says everyone needs to back off in her words injured too because nearly everyone in Australia accepts that climate change is a real problem but it's an abstract and to some terrifying problem and end agreeing on exactly what should be done about it right now is proving almost impossible.

A Place Where The Opioid Problem Is Upside Down
"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply all right here in the United States too much access to opioids has led to rampant addiction and overdose but we're going to hear from a part of the world facing the exact opposite problem a lack of powerful pain medications in the Gambia in West Africa. Doctors want greater access to opioids. They say they can help speed a patient's recovery. NPR's Jason Bovine traveled there recently as part of our ongoing look at treating pain and and the story does contain some uncomfortable medical details. It's mid morning at the Gambia's only teaching hospital orthopedic Surgeon Cabot Marina is talking with several nurses about two operations that they're about to start. I just bring it into the United States. It's not going to be perfect. MARINA IS A fit thirty seven year old. He's pulling on scrubs. He and his staff are looking up an X. Rays of leg bones and a light box on the wall. A curtain divides the operating room into on the left is a fourteen year old. He fractured his knee in a soccer game in a collision goalie. His parents say he almost scored on the right is a twenty nine year old man. He was in a nasty car crash a week earlier and Tibia is now protruding coming from his Shin Doctrine says operations like these pain is unavoidable hammers and saws and Gills and things like that so so afterwards old patients expected how some pain but in the Gambia managing that pain can be difficult. I the Gambia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Many medications including painkillers are in short supply and even if Moreno can get powerful opioids for his patients nurses on the general wards aren't trained to administer or monitor them. Dr Moreno spent the last thirteen years working in the United Kingdom. He says one of the striking things about returning. Home is the contrast pain management everyone I I end up. I have to leave the world when they were doing dressings because I couldn't handle the screams but you get used to it which is not great but it's what you have to do. In order to survive in the environment lived in the operating room. Dr Moreno does have access to anesthesia for the two surgeries on this day. Each patient will get a spinal block. It makes their legs. Go numb highly effective. You've at one point the fourteen year old asks. What's my leg doing up there as a nurse moves them around on the bed patient on the right is getting a steel pin driven vertically from mm-hmm is need to almost as ankle to stabilize his broken? Tibia in the UK. Both these patients would be completely asleep under general anesthesia but not here. That's partly because this country of two million people doesn't have any anesthesiologists. The only ones working in the Gambia are doctors on loan from China or Cuba so ninety eight percent of Anaesthesia Services Don byas Mahmoud El Moussa borrow heads the College of Nursing at the American International University West Africa in the Gambian capital bright across the country all had facilities well rations stick. Please where what you find the semester these specially trained nurses. I can do many of the procedures that full anesthesiologist would but there aren't many of them and they tend to work mainly in surgical operating rooms they aren't present and labor in delivery wards leaving most women here to give birth with no pain medication at all back at the surgical ward doctrine just finished resetting setting the bones and the teenagers knee he twisted the leg back into place drilled three hole through the top of the knee and secured the joint with wires sitting have to open the skin off but it still we'll be painful think you saw how. I had to bend it back into place the start and he will be sore afterwards. If I have been doing this operation in England the boy would have gotten a local anesthetic around the joint ease the pain as he wakes up but again not here the pain meds that are readily available in the Gambia are generic versions of pilot and advil an aspirin. The only narcotic clinicians sometimes dispense is a synthetic opioid called tram at all. It's considered less powerful and less addictive than opioids like oxycodone or morphine. Meanwhile the operation on the other table is continuing north comedic surgeon from China is literally hammering Rod until the twenty nine year olds leg first couple of attempts didn't go so well. I may have to back out the Pan A. and try again but doctrine is confident. It will all work. He says these pins are highly effective before they made up and walking and they usually went home. even the next day broken leg one day walking out onto the streets of London the next but only because their pain was well controlled with opioids doctrine doesn't predict such a tranquil post surgical recovery for this guy. The patient is clearly uncomfortable gripping the table as the hammering continues and he still under under the spinal anesthetic off in about six hours time then there's usually some screaming on the words and and it just takes some getting used to the patient and stuff as well in the absence of a strong pain medication. It'll be several days. Maybe a week before this man can put any weight on his leg. These patients are also likely elite experience flare ups of what Dr McCall's breakthrough pain in the UK Moreno with treat this with oral morphine but morphine isn't available on the wards here for the fourteen year old who just had knee surgery his recovery starts on a trip on a Gurney to the pediatric ward. The Children's Ward is actually sleep in another building across the street from the main hospital. There are no rails on the Gurney and he slides around as the orderly pushes him through the potholed streets. Finally he arrives at the crowded kids ward. His legs are still numb from the anesthetic during surgery his father Hassan Manual. Camara says they know his recovery will take time where they were. Just try to support him as much as possible. Kamara worries about his son being in pain but he recognizes that he just had surgery. He doesn't expect his son to be comfortable. Dr Moreno wishes he had stronger pain meds for his patients. This teen will be hurting for the the next few days but despite that Renna says this operation was a success is now he's going to straight Meghan into suffer the rest they may not have access a strong opioids but Dr Moreno and the other caregivers here have confidence that their patients will heal and eventually the pain will go away Jason Bobi.
