credible story with bob, you want to start december 10th on g.w. . this is d. w. news live from berlin. a coronavirus vaccine could now be one step closer and german part now by on tax cut cost for emergency approval for their vaccine in the u.s. . they say they could begin sending out dozers within hours of approval. also on the program as saudi arabia prepares to host the g 20 summit. some of your opinion
10:01 am
lawmakers call for a boycott of the event demanding saudi leaders come clean with human rights abusers . i'm told me a lot of well, thank you for joining me. u.s. drug giant pfizer and its german partner by own tack of a ploy to have applied for emergency authorization for their coronavirus vaccine in the u.s. . the vaccine has performed well in initial safety trials. and based on that, the u.s. food and drug administration could grant permission before testing is complete. and if it does, the 1st dozers could be administered next month. for many people with severe health and economic impacts of the pandemic. mean a vaccine can't come soon enough. a small pub with a big history, 60 years of just the albatross pub in california,
10:02 am
once hosted intellectuals of the free speech movement in the sixty's. today, it's shutting down for good to the coronavirus pandemic where people, everybody hang out in public spaces is a community space. it's, a familiar story, not just in the u.s., but all across the world. the lives of many have been up ended by the pandemic. but on friday, some good news. german drug developer biotech and its american partner, pfizer announced that they will be asking the u.s. food and drug administration for emergency approval of a covert. 19 vaccine comes after the companies posted promising results from advanced trial. it showed a 94 percent success rate in adults over $65.00 and the park 89 months. after the start of this project,
10:03 am
we have a readiness to buy new fire. sure and get approved for boxes of this. as you can see, definitely it is something of a will redefine it will start the clock on a process that could save the vaccine approved for use in the u.s. by mid december. once approved, distribution will become the focus. and there's a mixed response from americans as to whether or not they will get the shot. of course. yeah, probably soon as possible. and not really to say that i don't even take it beautifully, shot myself just because the maddening system that has been really good. yes, although i'm not personally feel like so i guess everybody's own choice, you know, because not everybody agrees with vaccines, but experts don't want people getting too excited. stressing that the manufacture and distribution of the vaccine is a complex task and will take some time. i mean, even if we look about,
10:04 am
you know, 6070 percent population in the work of human eyes to see the real impact of the vaccine. we are talking about $11000000000.00. and i don't think that one of the absolute can be produced at this here for 40 ministration around the globe by on tech. and pfizer have also started applications in the u.k. and in europe for use of their vaccine. will we all soon be immunized less? ask john campbell, he's a health analyst based in college in the u.k. . john, thank you for joining us. now. let's begin by just looking at this application itself. what does it mean in terms of its emergency use? will it somehow be fast tracked? the application? yes, basically, that is the case. we know that the pfizer vaccine, for example, is efficacious the way it works and it's about 95 percent effective. it's
10:05 am
remarkably effective vaccine. and we've also had the 2 month safety data or not. so 2 months, this pattern of people, since the last dose of the backseat was given. so the european magnum x. is agency is now having what we call a rolling review of this, that they're just considering the data every day as it comes in so far. it's promising and i'm expecting the u.k. will follow it is to authorize it within the next week or so. the european agency, i really don't think will be far behind in the food and drug administration, the united states. and that basically means it's legal for practitioners to inject into people's arms. this is the legal authorization we need. so i fully expect that people will be getting vaccinated. i'm developing immunity to this in december. so i think we are, the light is well and truly the end of the tunnel. now. now the european union has got 200000000 doses of this finds a vaccine on the way with an option on another 100000000. the problem is it does need quite a big, complicated coach anus to be transported at minus 70 degrees centigrade. but the
10:06 am
airlines are gearing up to this now, and it's being manufactured locally. it's been actually in germany, belgium, the united states, and it will cost about $20.00 euros a dose we believe. so it's not the cheapest maxi, but this is, this is the 1st maxi, all the others are going to follow. the material won't be far behind. right? are just going to get 2 sides to that in a 2nd but people in that report we were just listening to saying they want to get vaccinated. how much of a problem will be a if there's widespread rijeka? yeah, there's been a study in about 16 countries published in the journal nature on this and the highest acceptance rate for the vaccine or it china and the lowest accepted rates for the vaccine are in russia. and europe is kind of somewhere in between. so in most european countries, at the moment, it's hovering about a 7172 percent of people say to take the vaccine if it was offered immediately. but there's more to it than people's personal preference. now this would be mandated in
10:07 am
europe, but it could be a requirement for employment. so for example, airline workers might be told, well you need a certificate. and since it's a typical fascination, well, you can't fly back to work which could be told you need to sit to figure about this notional. you can't commit it mix with the colleagues in the factory, and it could be a condition of travel as well. so stray you, for example, expect to stipulate that vaccination is necessary to travel to restrain the united states even within europe. this could become possible. so even a low people can opt out of it, it may become necessary for people to take part in day to day economic life. that remains to be, it remains to be seen really. ok, and you've mentioned they're going to be multiple vaccines available. how can one person decide to use them all just to be on the safe side, and how do you decide which one of them to take? well, basically the vaccines we get to begin with will be the ones is available. so, so for december it will be the pfizer vaccine, conceivably, the middle of accident,
10:08 am
the end of december, certainly by january out, expected to be to be administered. so it's availability in particular areas. but over time, what we do is we develop a profile of what vaccine is best for what people. but what age group is a particular vaccine better for people with heart disease is a particular vaccine, better for older people or for younger people. that data will come to light in time, but the big hope in this time is the opposite astra zeneca vaccine. the european union's got 400000000 doses of this organizing is being made in 20 places all around the world, including australia and south america. and the plans to make with these 20 partners over 2000000000 doses. and the big thing about the oxford astra zeneca one, is that not trying to make a profit out of it? the pfizer going to do it one after poppy back scenes. where the oxford astra zeneca vaccine is going to be for your dose. so that means you can immunize someone . and as long as this vaccine turns out to be education say, which is looking good so far for about 8 euros per person, that's going to be the real game changer for the world. great insight there,

john campbell, health analyst, and collin, the u.k. . thank you. thank you, john. let's not take a look at some other stories making headlines around the world. in the u.s. state of wisconsin, police are searching for a suspect after a mall shooting wounded several people. according to the local mayor, several people were taken to hospital, but none of the injuries are life threatening. police described the suspect as a white male. in his twenty's or thirty's. several explosions rocked the afghan capital kabul on saturday. authorities say at least 3 people were killed and over 20 wounded after a rocket propelled mortars were fired from a van. several other similar attacks took place in densely populated parts of the city. no group has claimed responsibility. the g. 20 summit of 20 rich nations and major emerging powers gets underway in saudi
